Love it! It was hard to put down and I did not want it to end.

Hudson is the anchor of the Lovelly brothers; after their mother dies, their father loses himself in his work and it’s up to Hudson to take care of the boys. We meet Blake and Hudson in “Forever Kinda of Love” and learn of their deep love and commitment to each other.

This story is told in both Blake’s & Hudson’s POV, it alternates between the past and present day. It takes us back to when they met at age 17 during a debate competition to present day when their baby is about to be born.

The attraction between Blake and Hudson is immediate. But, they don’t give in to it immediately. This is a sweet and loving story; their relationship develops slowly. The title says it all “Flirting with Love”; Blake and Hudson are flirtatious and hint at their mutual attraction, but they take their time in letting it go full blown.

The story has a very serious side; one of Blake’s friends lives in an abusive household. Blake tries to help her friend and in a twist to the story a tragedy is suffered.

This is one of my favorite couples: Hudson is a beautiful person and a true gentleman. Blake is a “firecracker” that likes to play pranks; she is true to herself. They are wonderful together and you can feel their love come off the pages.  This is a story of love, friendship, loyalty and commitment.

I was given an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Ten years later, Ace is handed another crippling challenge that threatens everything in her almost perfect life. Only, this time, she doesn’t turn to Heath, hiding the truth instead. But Heath knows Ace too well and won’t back down easily. He’s ready to do whatever it takes and will stay by her side until she accepts that their love is the kinda love worth fighting for.

Will he be her forever triumph or her unexpected downfall?

Butterfly Pieces
by: Clara Stone
Expected Publication Date: October 2015
Genre: New Adult/Romance

Synopsis

Control.


That has been twenty year old Samantha Benedict’s life’s mission. Two years since leaving her old life, she finally creates that perfect life she sought out. At least perfect to the outside world.

But being the perfect girlfriend, having the perfect GPA, and even wearing perfect heels can take a toll on girl. It drains Sami from the effort to keep up the facade than anything else in her life.

That’s until she comes across Ryker Larson, the Satan’s-freaking-first-born-spawn and a complete self-centric-ass-hole who loves his race car more than anything else. With his thrill seeking ways and bad-ass attitude, he challenges her careful tightly wrapped life.

What’s a girl to do but to rise up to the challenge? The only question is… Will she keep up with her good-girl-self or get sucked back into her old ways.

After all, bad habits die hard.
