Review Blog Tour!!! I loved Long For Me by Stacey Lynn. Check out my review and book info below!


Long for Me by Stacey Lynn
Publisher: Carina Press
Release Date: September 4th, 2017



My boss already controls my days; do I want to give him my nights, as well?


I’ve seen what happens when you give everything to a man. That’s not what I want. I won’t have my heart crushed in anyone’s fist.

Then he changed everything.

Him. Bennett Ashby. My boss.

Seeing him at Luminous, dressed in leather pants and wielding a whip…

Do I crave this?

My mind says no, but my body is starting to have very different ideas.


I knew Rebecca Morales would be the perfect assistant. That’s why I hired her.

I didn’t know that working with her every day would lead to temptation—to own her, to possess her.

When she walked into Luminous, I knew I was screwed. Dipping your pen in the company ink is never smart, but we both agreed what happens at the club stays there.

One night and then it’s back to business tomorrow.

Except I don’t want just one night with Rebecca. I want them all.

Release Blitz & Review: Penthouse Player is here!!! Tara Leigh has a new fan and I love Billionaire Bosses Romance stories.


Abandoned by her mother and spurned by her father, Reina St. James is tired of being treated like a dirty little secret. It wasn’t easy making her way into the high-risk, high-reward Wall Street world ruled by financial kings and trust fund tyrants. But now that she’s got a stiletto-clad toe into one of the swankiest firms in Manhattan, Reina is determined to prove she’s more than just a pretty face hiding an ugly past.

For Tristan Xavier Bettencourt IV, escaping the shadow cast by generations of family fortune has been difficult, and success hasn’t come without sacrifice. Tristan has always put business before pleasure… Until Reina’s curved lips prove an invitation he can’t resist.

Walking away from their explosive night together won’t be easy, even if the heat between them might consume both of their careers. Will Reina and Tristan risk everything by betting on each other?

“Do you speed walk in the office for exercise, or is this your normal clip?”
Tristan ushered me inside and closed the door, spinning me around and backing me up against it. “I was feeling impatient,” he growled.
My breath left my lungs in a whoosh, and I felt weightless. “Did you see the tweet last night?” I squeaked. “We can’t afford to do this.”
“Yeah, I saw it, and it was deliberately vague. But this, what’s between us, is damned impossible to ignore.”
His breath fanned my ear, sending a shiver through my entire body. I looked up at his face, his blue eyes as deep and rich as the midnight sky. Mistake. Big mistake. Tristan’s eyes should come with a warning sign. Hazardous. Will cause extreme heat. My lungs felt scorched, but I breathed deep anyway. “Tristan, I—”
“I know. We shouldn’t be doing this.” His expression said the exact opposite.
Barely two inches separated us, and if I was being honest with myself, that was the only thing that felt wrong about the situation. I wanted to feel the length of his body against mine, go skin to skin with the solid bulk of his muscles. I wanted him to crush my face to his own, kiss me until I couldn’t breathe. A slow burn ignited deep in my stomach and I felt an irresistible urge to have him inside of me. Now. My eyes pleaded with his, but what I was begging for . . . I didn’t even know anymore.
He gave a slow nod. “You’re right,” and stepped back. I nearly cried out from his absence, sagging slightly, although somehow I remained upright. “This isn’t how I want to have you.”
I blinked. Have me? “It’s not?” I should have been relieved. Tristan could have me all he wanted, but in a professional way. I could compile research, populate spreadsheets, organize presentations. I was willing—no, eager—to work hard and make personal sacrifices for the sake of my career. A career that would never get off the ground if anyone knew I was standing in the supply room closet with my boss, the door closed, oozing with disappointment that he wasn’t trying to get inside my skirt. I was a lot of things, but relieved wasn’t one of them.
Clearing my throat, I wrapped my fingers tightly around the doorknob. What now? “I’m glad we agree.” It was a bluff, a pathetic attempt to save face. And if it worked, I was going to need the nearest ledge..

Fuck. Agree? What exactly was Reina agreeing to? That I would leave her alone? That I would let her walk out the door without tasting her lips once more? I’d grown up in the world of banking and big business, had already made a lot of deals, but allowing Reina to walk away from me wasn’t even on the table.
I took a step toward her, covered her hand with my own. Reina’s eyes were wide open and staring at me, the faintest hint of purple smudges beneath them. Obviously neither one of us had slept well last night. I let my gaze travel the full length of her body, from the blond hair captured in a bun at the base of her scalp, begging me to release it, to the nude heels with the red soles that should have been pointed at the ceiling as I thrust between her thighs.
When I returned to her face, Reina’s lips were parted slightly, her cheeks flushed. “You want me every bit as much as I want you,” I said, taking pleasure in stating the obvious.
Reina took her time answering, and when she did it was in a whisper. “I know.”
“If you didn’t, if this was just a one-sided thing, I’d let you walk out the door right now.”
“I know that too.”
“Are you sure? The details of our lives are pretty complicated right now.” I paused, not sure how honest I should be. Fuck it. Reina was a breath of fresh air, and I wanted her in my life. Hiding my feelings, obscuring my intentions—what was the point? “But what I feel for you isn’t complicated. It’s pretty damn simple, actually. I need you.”
Reina’s lips tilted upward at the edges, and I leaned down, pausing an inch away. I could taste her breath, spearmint with just the faintest hint of morning coffee. One second went by. Then two. And then I felt her hand curl around the back of my neck and draw me closer. Much better.

Crystal’s Book World Review: 

4 Stars!!!!

I was really intrigued about this book starting with the blurb and the cover. I love a good “Sleeping with your Boss” trope and was going into this thinking it was going to be similar to others in the same category of romance. What I did not expect was two powerful and strong people were sort of broken from their past. Penthouse Player was sinful and very unexpected. You get the good, bad, and sexy all in one twist.

Reina trumps the Queen card of what she takes on in life. Tristan will never back down from what he wants. I really was impressed with their first encounter. Tristan saw Reina and immediately claimed her from the arms of another man. This book had the high and lows. It was a true emotional rollercoaster.

Blog Review: Why did I not read this book sooner? I mean wow this book was not what I expected. I loved it and a new fan of Gemma James!

Crystal’s Book World Review: 

4 Stars: 

I was very unsure to start reading this book. But I have heard nothing but praises for Gemma James and her writing that I thought I could give this book a chance. I am thankful for the author’s note because it helped me prepare my mind frame. I really didn’t need to at the end. There are very different circumstances when it came to this book. Does it make it right, no. But I can see where Gemma was going with her story and characters.

Jules heart is broken from the get go. The twist….she broke her own heart and decides that she needs a new start in a different town. She moves and on her way there, she meets our very sexy and compassionate Cash Montgomery. The attraction blew me away. The flirting was cute and gave me butterflies. And then a bomb is dropped days later after these two meet.

The whole power of meeting your soulmate at the wrong time in life is unnerving. This makes you understand that you should not live life to just content. You need to take chances and step into the unknown. The ending killed me! I need to know what happens next. I can not wait to read the next book!


“Angsty, sexy, and intense, Trashy Foreplay is everything a contemporary romance should be! I couldn’t put it down.” ~ Anna Zaires, New York Times Bestselling Author



Never flirt with temptation.
Never lust after what I can’t have.
And never, under any circumstances, screw a married man again.

By the time this story is told, I’ll have failed at all three…

With my heart and reputation in ruins, I can’t afford to make another mistake. Boarding a flight to Seattle is supposed to give me a clean slate, but from the moment Cash Montgomery slides into the seat next to mine, I’m captivated by his steel eyes that see too much. I ache for this stranger in a way I’ve never ached for anyone.

But I didn’t know he was married, and I sure as hell didn’t see the curveball fate had in store. My clean slate in Seattle isn’t so clean after all because my new boss is the man forbidden to me.

And the only man I want.

The only man I’ll do anything for, even if it means breaking the promise I made to myself when I fled my old life in shame.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for a married man, but I did.

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Though the subject matter deals with cheating, there are no innocent parties here. Book 1 in the Trashy Affair series.

Breakwater Lane by Stephanie Payne Hurt is available now!!!! I finished this book and loved this small town romance! Check out the book details and my review below~~Happy Reading XoXo

Crystal’s Book World Review:

3.5 Stars!!

Breakwater Lane is a great book to dive into and unlock a few mysteries along the way. This is my first book I have read by Stephanie Payne Hurt and it was different from what I have read before. I am always interested to see how authors can bring us readers a twist or two when it comes with the Romance genre. Breakwater Lane definitely has the romance with a dash of drama. What really captured me was the suspense of the book.

The main characters Jordan and Skylar were a great pair. You get the sarcasm, sassiness, and the playful side of the characters. The mutual chemistry is amazing. These two click. Their history almost blocked their future. The small town that Jordan goes back to is tight knit, but you will find some stragglers that are consumed with greed and envy.

The story line was good, there was a couple of times that I would get a little lost in the dialogue and not sure if it was written in first person or third person. This did not effect the actual story, just my brain would get stuck a time or two. All in all, I enjoyed the read and rated this book a 3.5.

Add to Goodreads






   Brittany Campbell is a smart, sassy woman with no filter. She has an
   independent streak a mile long and no man will get in her way. No matter
   how gorgeous he is.


   Nathan Beckham works with Brittany. She can’t escape him. His persistence
   along with his beautiful smile finally wears her down. Brittany decides to
   give him a chance, even though she knows he has a secret….

   One that he doesn’t want to share.


   Can Brittany and Nathan fight for each other and the possible love that is
   forming between them with the roller coaster ride that is Nathan’s life?






   Now that I’m alone I reach under my shirt and remove this burden of a bra.
   I was not lacking at all in that department. I hate them.

   “Need some help with that?” Nathan’s deep voice surprises me and I throw it
   at him not thinking.

   “What the fuck, Nathan. Don’t sneak up on me,” I say, covering myself.

   He chuckles. “I didn’t. I walked in as Jessa left. I just assumed you saw

   “Um, no. Now turn around so I can put the damn thing back on.”

   “No need. I’m just grabbing a file and heading home.”

   “Are you okay?”

   “Yeah. I’m fine.”

   “You don’t look fine.”

   “Brittany, you almost seem like you care,” he says, grabbing his chest.

   “I wouldn’t go that far. That eye isn’t too good for business, though.”

   “I think I look pretty bad ass actually,” he says, showing me that
   beautiful smile. “I think you approve, too,” He nods at my chest. I look
   down and see my nipples are hard, poking through my blouse. Damn them. I
   quickly cover up again and he chuckles walking back to his office. I’m

   He comes back and I can’t help but be nosy. “Did your crazy ex give you
   that black eye?”

   “Why would you think that?”

   “I don’t know. Am I right?”

   “Hardly.” He grins, sitting on the edge of my desk.

   “Seriously, Nathan. Why do you have to piss me off? If my desk breaks,
   you’re buying me a new one. Get the fuck off.”

   “I told you, I like to get under your skin. It’s fun. You’re so feisty. And
   I won’t break your desk by sitting on it. I could think of other ways to
   break it though,” he says, narrowing his eyes on me.

   I won’t look at him. I’m not feeding into that. “So, you’re really not
   gonna tell me what happened?”

   “Nope. Why do you want to know so bad?”

   “I don’t know. You just don’t seem like the fighting type.” He laughs, like
   cracks up laughing. “What the fuck is so funny?”

   “You. You don’t know me at all, but you think you have me all figured out.”

   “I didn’t say that. Don’t put words in my fucking mouth. I clearly stated
   that I don’t take you as a fighter. The black eye and all. You must have
   pissed someone off. You don’t want to talk about it. Fine. I wouldn’t
   either, if I got my ass whooped.”

   Nathan leans down, putting his hands on either side of me on my desk, eye
   level with me, he catches me off guard being so close. I gasp and can’t
   look away. His eyes are the most beautiful color green I’ve ever seen.
   They’re smoldering. He’s so close, and looking at my lips as if he’s going
   to kiss me; my heart begins to pound into my throat. Time seems to stand
   still. He looks into my eyes with a cheeky grin and says, “I never get my
   ass whooped, sweetheart.”

   He stands. “I’ll see you tomorrow.” He chuckles on the way out the door.

   I release the breath I didn’t realize I was holding. That bastard. What the
   hell? Why did I just sit there? Why didn’t I push him away? Why didn’t I
   kiss him? Why the fuck am I thinking like this? I need to get a grip.



Crystal’s Book World Review:

5 Stars: 

I really love J.L Davis books! After reading the previous book, Last, I knew Brittany and Nathan would have to have their story heard. This book rocked it! The game of cat and mouse is finally over! Brittany has to take baby steps because she hardly trusts Nathan to not break her heart. Little did I realize that it would be Nathan’s past that would rock this relationship. Brittany’s attitude is real and amusing. She knows that she can fall easily for Nathan, but the question of the day, will she?

This book has more sexy steamy scenes. You will get lost in the pages and barely blink. Then when you are at the end, you are left wanting more. The anticipation of the story will build. I love finding a great book to get lost into and Fight will do it for you and much more!



   I am a small town girl from Arkansas. I love chocolate, Starbucks, spending
   time with family, friends, going camping, mud riding and gardening but not
   pulling weeds. I hate that part.

   I am addicted to reading and finally decided to try the writing thing in
   December 2016 and released my first novel, Last in May 2017. I hope to be
   able to write full time someday. That is my dream. I also love interacting
   with readers and hearing what they think of my books too.

It is Blog Tour Time!!!!! Dr. Neuro is available now and you need to meet with the doctor today!! Review is included <3

Crystal’s Book World Review:

5 Stars!!!

Is it really over? I really loved the St. Luke Docuseries! I will admit I love everything that Max Monroe writes. I am addicted to their writing and I have been anticipating Nick’s (Dr. Neuro) story. I knew from the previous books he comes off as a serious and no fun kind of guy. But once we are allowed inside his head, you will see all along that he is not a bad guy. He is ready to “adult” and be the best he can be. He has a very special little lady to thank for that.

Charlotte is by far one of my favorite heroine. She did good making sure Nick knew what her intentions were. I was shocked with the forwardness for a few seconds, then hollering and rooting for her to go for it. This lade will make you laugh hard. At first I felt that their relationship was to easy going. Once I had made that comment, a lot of twists and turns happened and I was hooked to this book. Charlotte shows us she has a heart of gold and backbone made of steel.

The Docuseries make these doctors seem like they play the field. Nick was quite the opposite. He loves hard and true. And oh when those sexy scenes unfold, you are amazed and shiver along. Dr. Neuro was thrilling, sexy, and a lot drama! Get this book and if you have not started this series, you need to asap!


Tiny Tease: 

With a quick smack and a groan, I silenced the alarm and rolled over to my stomach to shove my head into the fluff of my pillow.

      “Oh my God,” I grumbled.

      Even the sound of my own voice was grating.

      Great, I thought. This should make work interesting.

      I grabbed my phone off of my nightstand, rolled back onto my back, and typed out a quick message. 

      Me: So, apparently, you’re a sadist. 

      A reply popped up nearly immediately. 

      Charlotte: Wimp. 

      Me: I’m actually sore. 

      Charlotte: It takes time to acclimate to the dance life. You’ve got good moves, though. Be proud, soldier, be proud. 

      Me: Oh, so I suppose you’re completely fine? 

      Charlotte: Yep. 😉 

      Me: I kind of hate you. 

      Charlotte: That wears off. Trust me. Pretty soon you won’t be able to live without me.

5 Stars!!!

Angst!!!! Oh my goodness this book had me on the edge the whole freaking time!!!!! I can not believe how many times I yelled at Reese lol.  The chemistry she has with Mark and Brian were different but relatable. I just wished she would have not panicked at the beginning and everything would have been ok.

Towards the end, I was surprised with Reeses actions. But there are times when you have that pull towards someone, you can’t stay away. Mark is a lost soul it seems, and finds Reese could fill the void in his life. Brian is loveable and alpha. I would not be able to choose between the two. 

A Little like Destiny brings you all the yummy sexy times. The one that you feel like you are being worshipped, and the other where you can give up control. This book is IT for me! I feel like I’m holding my breath until the next book comes out to see what Reese plans to do next. I’m sad that there may be some broken hearts upcoming.

Cover Design: Sarah Hansen/Okay Creations

Release Date: August 28, 2017



 Down-on-her-luck teacher, Daisy Clemmens, is about to learn some hard lessons. (Not like that, you perv.)

Lesson One

No matter how broke you are, never agree to a job that includes a rabid eight-year-old, requires a tetanus shot or where your boss is a sexy (and cranky) rock ‘n’ roll god.

Lesson Two

Do not, do not start to have tender, gooey feelings for the sexy commitment-phobe rock ‘n’ roll god. You’ll only get hurt.

Lesson Three

Okay so you’ve slept with the sexy rock ‘n’ roll god. But it’s not too late. Just whatever you do, don’t fall in love. Whoops. Too late.

Lesson Four

Never love someone, even if they are a sexy rock ‘n’ roll god, more than yourself.

Crystal’s Book World Blog Review:

5 Stars!!!

Oh this book makes this story and the series of Wild Minds so much better! I really loved Addison in Good Lies. We were introduced to Billy and Daisy in the first book. I loved Billy from the get go. Then we rewind back time and I flew in for some Hard Lessons. Charlotte West has me twisted up in this book. I got in deeper and got more mushy and tingly feelings when I read all about Daisy and Billy. Wanks and Janks bandmates play a huge roll in this book, and we meet Addison as a loveable little girl.

Billy is just HOT and I still can hear his accent ( yes I made up one for him ) in my head. Who knew a 30 year old Rock Star would be so appealing. He fell so hard but the way he expressed himself was just “Billy style”. In the end with the heartbreak, tears, and fears, Daisy had to choose. Will she stay for a rock star who always puts himself first? Or does she finally have the strength to leave and live a life for herself?

So not only will you have your emotions thrown all over the place and be panting over Billy, but the sexy scenes are so worth it! I knew it would be phenomenal. Hard Lessons will make your heart soar. This book will give you the lows with the highs. You will be hot one second, then freezing cold the next. Yes my friends you will get all the feels. I am truly a fan of Charlotte’s writing and hoping one of the bandmates will get a story. I never want to let these guys go. Well maybe I wouldn’t be too caught up with Turner. LOL you have to read this book to see what I mean.

Crystal’s Book World Review:

5 Stars!!!

Three Sisters Catering series are going to be a hit! I loved Pinch of Salt. This book brings you laughter, tears, and some yummy sexy times all wrapped in one delicious recipe! Millie and her sisters are adorable and feisty. You never want to get on their bad side. Millie is the cook behind the scenes of the sisters catering business. Then one day a hot dimpled man with glasses came into Millie’s life and changed it before she knew what hit her.

Jackson has an adorable little girl and is a great dad. He is also a great teacher and is an expert in the poems and literature department. The sparks that ignite with Jackson and Millie are amazing! The chemistry just overflowed with these two and I could literally feel the butterflies when these two would meet up. I loved that Jackson was just as nervous as Millie when they would hang out. There was drama and baggage that Jackson had to work out. Would it destroy what he and Millie have before it truly starts? Will Millie be scared off by a young girl who has conflicting emotions and attitude because her dad is dating again?

The sexy scenes with Jackson and Millie were steamy and romantic at the same time! There was a little bit of side drama with one of Millie’s sisters that will unfold in the next book. I can not wait!

I rescued Sabrina from a mafia bloodbath when she was
thirteen. Doing right by her became a priority for me, even while I was busy as
the new head of the Philly syndicate. I sent her to the best boarding schools
and kept her as far away from the life as possible. It worked perfectly. Until
she turned 18. Until she came home. Until I realized that the timid girl was
gone and in her place lived a smart mouth, a wicked imagination, and a body
that demanded my attention. Who am I? I’m F*cked. Nice to meet you.

Crystal’s Book World Review:

5 Stars!!!

I freakin love Celia Aaron’s writing. It can get a little dark, but the emotions and the brain that goes into Nate was amazing! I know Nate is a killer, a mob boss, cold hearted, malicious, and so much more. But we get to see him in Sabrina’s eyes. This hard and soulless man becomes whole when she is around. His light, his angel. The power oozes from Nate. Celia describes him so well that you feel like you are in the same room as Nate. This book brings you so much emotions that will have you in turmoil. Nate’s crew are mostly loyal. I say that because things seem to happen with the Russians and it makes Nick feel that he has a rat in his pocket.

Sabrina blew me away. This poor girl is all grown up now. She is getting stronger and trying to survive her past. She knows that she will be able to do anything as long as she has Nate on her side. Her savior. The antics this woman goes through to show Nate she will not back down were sometimes hilarious but down right sultry. Sabrina is ready to take the kings side and be the queen he needs.

Nate had me glued to each page. I love that Hitman was in some parts of this book. I really loved all the sexy scenes that we get. This book is insanely thrilling and hot all wrapped in one. The ending surprised the hell out of me. Everything about this book surpassed my expectations! I am a huge fan of Celia Aaron’s and can not wait to see what she has out next!
