“Oh, Crappy Doodles!” Hell in a Handbasket by Denise Grover Swank releases on April 17th!


For those of you who have read A Rose Gardner Mystery series & the Investigation series, you will understand “Oh, Crappy Doodles!” If you haven’t read these series yet…shame on you 😉

I discovered A Rose Gardner Mystery series on Amazon a couple summers ago. After reading the first book in the series, Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes, I couldn’t stop. I fell in love with Rose and the rest of the characters.

Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes synopsis:

For Rose Gardner, working at the DMV is bad even before she has a vision of herself dead. She’s had plenty of visions, but she’s never seen herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered instead of Rose, there’s only one thing that’s certain: Rose is the prime suspect.

With prison looming, Rose realizes she’s wasted her life and makes a list on the back of a Wal-Mart receipt: twenty-eight things she wants to accomplish before everything falls apart. From getting cable TV to doing “more” with a man, Rose is well on her way to committing a good number of the seven deadly sins, with the help of her hot and mysterious neighbor Joe, who has plenty of dangerous secrets of his own.

When her house is broken into and someone else she knows is murdered, Rose realizes that dying in the county jail may not be her biggest worry after all in Denise Grover Swank’s New York Times bestselling mystery debut.

Before reading Hell in a Handbasket, you will need to start with Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes and read the books in order leading up to the newest one. There are 9 books in the mystery series and several novellas. The series then spins off to A Rose Gardner Investigation series & Neely Kate Mysteries. Neely Kate appears later on in A Rose Gardner Mystery series…and you will love her! 

One of the reasons I love these books is because there are so many of them! I have enjoyed each book and they never get boring. I hope Denise continues to write about Rose and Neely Kate’s shenanigans for a long time!

Here is a list of the books you will need to read. I’ve listed them in order:

My Review

Fix My Fall is the first book I’ve read by Carey Heywood. I didn’t get a chance to read the first two books in this series, but they are definitely on my tbr list now! All of her books look amazing. I can’t wait to eventually read them all.

I loved so much about the book, but one of my favorite parts, besides Spencer, is the relationship Abby has with her family. Family is a huge part of my life, so I could totally relate to her in that sense. Family truly is everything.

Fix My Fall was such a swoon worthy book. I immediately fell for Spencer. He is sweet, considerate, and completely love able and sexy! I’m a little jealous of Abby 😉

Abby is an amazing woman. When she is faced with a disaster at the beginning of the book, she stays strong and she doesn’t let life get her down. She is also so kindhearted and just a great person overall. Abby & Spencer were truly made for each other.

Fix My Fall was a sweet romance book that I would definitely recommend to my book friends!

machine to ever own the ice. I shoot. I score. In and out of the rink. I don’t

ladies wanting more.Until that chick last night.I’m no one-thrust wonder, and you’re damn right I’m going to prove to her I can
do better. But every time I think I’m finally on my way back into her pants,

Zeus Berger (aka the biggest, baddest, most
spider-fearing mother pucker to ever play in the NHL)
Coconuts are itchy. I should’ve gone for the watermelons.
But it was a bitch and a half getting that last-minute
private fitting at Madame Cosette’s anyway, and the woman probably would’ve had
to stitch three bras together and then nailed the damn contraption to my
shoulders to get it to hold without losing a melon, so coconuts it is.
Besides, it’s the heels that are gonna be the bigger
problem. Damn good thing I have ankles of fucking steel.
And my minidress is stretched to max capacity over the
coconuts anyway. It’s also in danger of showing my other coconuts, if you catch
my drift. And there’s definitely a drift—or is that a draft?—on my other coconuts.
A wolf whistle echoes through the swanky private clubhouse
where I’m strolling in with my twin brother on my left and my brother from
another mother on my right. A passing server drops a tray of champagne.
Conversation stops. And a bunch of stuffy golf pricks gape at us like we’re a
mutant alien circus freak show crashing their million-dollar wedding reception.
We’re three dudes who have more money than God, more muscles
than all the Kardashians’ bodyguards combined, and more fun than cotton candy
and roller coasters.

My Review

This is the 2nd book by Pippa Grant that I have had the pleasure of reading and reviewing! The previous book I reviewed was Stud in the Stacks, which was just as amazing as The Pilot and the Puck-Up! The next book I’m looking forward to reading & reviewing is Mr. Mchottie…which is free for a limited time & is on Kindle Unlimited! 

The Pilot and the Puck-Up has everything I love in a romantic comedy! The book was hilarious, the sex scenes were hot & heavy and the characters were lovable. I literally laughed out loud so many times while reading this book. I couldn’t get enough of Zeus & Joey! 

“And I gleek. I fucking gleek. Right in her face. A big ol’ shot of my mouth juice, arcing through the air to sprinkle all over her nose and cheeks. This woman makes me blow body fluids every single fucking time I see her.”- Zeus Berger. 

The story of Zeus and Joey warmed my heart. Sometimes you just need to meet the right person to be able to open yourself up to love. I was rooting for them from the beginning. I also loved the other characters in the book. I would love to read more about what happens with Gracie and her prince. Maybe Pippa will write their story. I would love to read more! 

If you love a romantic comedy that will have you laughing and swooning, you need to go get your copy of The Pilot & the Puck-Up! 

As always, thank you for taking your time to read my review!

Title: Scoring the Player
Series: Indianapolis Eagles #2
Author: Samantha Lind

Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance

Release Date: February 8, 2018

Cocky, man whore, player…. Those are all ways I have been
described by the media and countless women. Are they accurate? Possibly. But,
that’s all I let the media see of me, Brian Kelly, defensive player for the
Indianapolis Eagles Hockey team. I have no intentions of settling down and
changing the media’s perception of me. I can’t tell if women are after me for
my bank account, the status symbol of being with a professional athlete, or if
they really want me for me. Then I meet her. The one woman who doesn’t let my
charm affect her or cause her to jump directly into my bed. Can I possibly
change my ways and settle down?
Grounded, selfless, giving…Those are all the ways my family
and friends have described me. Are they right? Possibly. But, I’m so much more,
and need some passion and excitement in my life. My best friend is moving on
and I want that someone special to share all that life has to offer. Let it be
known that I, Kinley Williams, want the right someone special. So why did he
have to crash into me? The one man who is so clearly wrong for me. Then again,
he doesn’t seem like anything the tabloids claim him to be. So is he really all
that wrong?

My Review

Congrats to Samantha Lind on her new release! This is my first book by her and I’m looking forward to reading more in the future! When I started Scoring the Player, I couldn’t put it down! I had to finish it in one sitting! This book is HOTTTT!

OMG! I loved this book! I definitely related to Kinley on a personal level. I’m about her same age and I am also at a point in my life where I’m just not looking for a one night stand. I want a relationship and I’m willing to wait for the right man now.  

I was completely in awe of Brians actions throughout the book and how he grew as a person. He is honestly the exact type of man I would want in my life. He’s sexy as hell, sweet, respectful and protective. 

I caught myself smiling throughout this book. I was rooting for Brian and Kinley! I’m so glad I had an opportunity to read and review Scoring the Player!

Thank you for taking your time to read my review!








Blog Tour+Review & Excerpt: Friends and Other Liars by Kaela Coble.

Genre: Women’s Fiction. Mystery/Suspense

Publication Date: 02/06/2018

Publisher: Sourcebooks Landmark

Length: 370 pages


To all my old friends:
So here you all are. Nice to see you can show up for a person once he’s dead.

When Ruby St. James returns to her hometown, it is to the grave of her old friend Danny, a member of a group that was, ten years ago, Ruby’s whole world. The crew made a pact back then: stay together, stay loyal, and stay honest. But that was before all of the lies.

Because even friends keep secrets. They just don’t stay secret for long.

Now Danny has left behind a letter for each of them, issuing one final ultimatum: share your darkest betrayal to the group, or risk it coming out in a trap he has created. When past mistakes resurface, the lines of friendship blurb, and four old friends are left trying to understand what it means to lie to the ones you love best.







Look at them. I’m dead and they’re still pissing me off.

They’re disgusting. Sitting in their pew, huddled together like a pack of wolves. Each playing their part in mourning—the bereaved, the wilted, the guilty. They clutch at one another, leaning on each other physically and emotionally for support. Shaking heads, balled fists, crocodile tears. Asking why, how. Dabbing their swollen eyes with crumpled tissues. Declaring their loyalty and love for one another. For me.

Really, they hate each other, and they hate themselves, and they hate me for making them face their own mortality. And they love me because it fuels their sick sense of pride in their little clan. The crew, they call themselves, even though they haven’t been whole for a decade. “Still supporting each other after all these years,” they declare, even though they wouldn’t know true support if it helped them climb out of a grave.

There’s Ally, the great beauty of Chatwick, sitting tall and stoic, practically cradling a weeping, whimpering Steph in her arms. Ally’s expression as she comforts Steph says everything about her that you need to know. In this most horrifying moment, she is proud to be the crew’s leader, to be the default person in whom to find solace. But the tightness around her lips and the slight narrowing of her eyes shows a bit of the self-righteousness she feels. Steph is a girlfriend of the crew, not an original member. What right does she have to this display? Ally shoots glances at her perfect husband, Aaron. High school sweethearts; couldn’t you just puke? Talk about not being an original member… Aaron the dreamboat isn’t one either. He didn’t swoop in until our sophomore year of high school. And if you ask me, we would have been just fine without him.

Emmett and Aaron sit together instead of with their respective significant others, no doubt upon Emmett’s insistence. He has always orchestrated the seating arrangements to split between genders. He’s the youngest of three brothers, and therefore the noise, the gossip, and the full range of feminine feelings have always made him uncomfortable. The heightened emotional state caused by my death is no doubt more unbearable for him than my death itself. That he is allowing Ally to tend to his sobbing girlfriend, offering no comfort of his own, comes as no surprise.

He and Aaron mimic the same posture—leaned forward, their elbows resting on the thighs of their cheap woolen pants. They face the front of the church, careful not to make eye contact with each other, so they won’t have to utter one of the lame platitudes they’ve heard too many times over the past days. “He’s in a better place.” “He’s finally at peace.” And my personal favorite: “He’s with Roger now.”

While they should be focusing on the tragedy that is (was) my life, instead my casket is a big, fat, polished-cedar reminder that one day this will be them. They ponder all the predictable questions that even people of the mildest intellect contemplate when faced with untimely death: Where do we go when we die? What will they say about me when I’m gone? What does it all mean? Tomorrow they will look into low-premium life insurance plans to take care of their burgeoning families, should something happen to them. It will make them feel like men in control of their lives. But they’re not. They’re boys, and they’re not in control of shit.

Speaking of boys, Murphy isn’t here, the coward. He always picks the easiest option, and in this case (and many cases), that means hiding. I’m dead, lying here about to be carried off and buried, but all he cares about is winning the argument. Murphy showing up would mean I got the last word, or that he had forgiven me, and either of those would mean he’s weak. He doesn’t realize he’s the weakest one of the bunch anyway.

That brings me to Ruby. She sits in the pew between the girls and the boys, the space between her and them so slight you would only notice if you were looking for it, like I am. She watches Ally comforting Steph, occasionally reaching out a hand to squeeze one of Ally’s. I know Ruby feels genuine grief, but mostly discomfort. She doesn’t know her place anymore, her role. I’m only now realizing that she never really knew it. She’s been an official outsider ever since she dared leave Chatwick at eighteen, but even before that, she and I were always the ones straddling the curvature of the crew’s closed circle. One foot in, one foot out. The dark ones.

I know it’s terrible how much enjoyment I get from watching her squirm, but it’s just too entertaining. Besides, with the fate of my soul no longer a question mark, I’m enjoying what I can. My death will be hardest on Ruby, for sure, but she’ll never admit it, and our crew won’t acknowledge it. She left. She abandoned us, so she can’t possibly feel it as deeply as they do. It’s amazing how grief turns so quickly from a group activity to a competitive sport.

It seems all of Chatwick turned up in their patent-leather shoes and cheap polyester blends. “To show their support,” they’d say. For who? Me? Four days ago, they wouldn’t have pissed on me if I were on fire. Most of them are only here to satisfy their morbid curiosity, whispering behind hands and rolling eyes, gathering tidbits to relay later to their neighbors who were unable to make it. But some are here for my mother, Charlene, whose deli (formerly my stepfather’s) is where they happily spend their food stamps. Either way, I wish they wouldn’t have come. It makes them feel too damn good about themselves, and they don’t deserve it. And I don’t deserve the show either, even if it is fake.

Mom stares blankly ahead of her as the priest eulogizes yet another man who has let her down. I look—well, looked—just like her. If you shaved off her two curtains of waist-length blond curls and straightened out her chest and hips, we would look like twins.

Nancy, Ruby’s mother, sits next to Mom, holding her limp hand. Nancy is the one who made all these arrangements, and despite the overabundance of flowers, I still appreciate her efforts. She saved my mother from having to coordinate another funeral, and I think one is enough for a lifetime. Ruby’s never forgiven Nancy for the way she handled her own illness back in the day, but as dicey as things got in the St. James household, they didn’t hold a candle to my family. Besides, Nancy’s one of the only assholes in this town who has any compassion, and I’m grateful she’s decided to bestow it upon Mom when she needs it most.

That’s all I ever needed. Compassion. If I’d ever gotten a shred of it from any of the people in this room, maybe I wouldn’t be in this fucking box.

My “friends” all think they will finally be rid of me once they’ve fulfilled this obligation. They will go back to the “happy,” normal, vanilla lives they lead, and their guilt will subside eventually.

Dumbasses. They have no idea Mom found the letters this morning.

My Review

First, I want to say congrats to Kaela on her first novel! I’m excited that I had an opportunity to read and review Friends and Other Liars! She is a very talented author and I’m looking forward to more of her books in the future! 

When I am reading a book filled with suspense, one of the most important things to me is how the book is paced. I lose interest very quickly if I feel like the story is being dragged out. I felt like she did a great job and the book was perfectly paced. I was eager to turn the pages to find out what was going to happen next! 

When “the crew” made a pact as children, they thought they were making an agreement to always be honest and there for each other. As we discover throughout the book, each crew member has a secret they are hiding from the entire group. I enjoyed reading about their past and discovering what their secrets were! This book kept me on my toes! 

I’ll admit at first I was kinda pissed at Danny. I thought he was selfish and just an ass for doing what he did and especially throwing his poor mother into the drama. As I kept reading, I discovered more about Danny and what led up to his decisions. 

I truly enjoyed Friends and Other Liars and I would definitely recommend this book to my fellow book lovers. 

Thank you for taking your time to read my review!

Sweet Little Lies 

(Book 5 in the Sweetest Thing Series)

Sierra Hill





RBA Designs



 Lindee Robinson Photography



Zack Kurz & Diana Chokr

New Adult/College Sports/Interracial





Some lies are meant to deceive. Others to protect.

My lies have done nothing but harm. They push people away. Even the people that I want to hold onto for dear life. Mica Reyes is too beautiful and pure for my tarnished soul, although I want her with a fierceness of a caged lion.

They say letting go of your grief and your sins will unburden you and set you free. But it’s her I need to set free from the pain I’ll cause from loving her too much.



My Abuelita always said I should never give my heart away unless I knew it would be in capable hands. To give it to a man who would love and cherish me and put me first above all others. 

But my heart didn’t listen. I fell for Lance Britton, the college basketball player who uses humor to outwardly disguise the emotional turmoil that lives inside him. To hide his painful secrets.

But I know him. And although I hate ultimatums, I may need to give him one before the lies between us grow any deeper. Letting go may be the only way to reach him.

“The book packs a powerful message of untainted love and kinship.” – Shabby, BookBistroBlog




I have a monster living inside of me.


Eating me alive from the inside out. Turning me into something I never wanted to be. Someone I abhorred and loathed.


That monster is my darkest secret.


One that will eventually be my ruin. The thing that will turn my world upside down.


The evil villain that will destroy me.


There’s no pain quite as excruciating as watching the woman who gave birth to you, who raised and cared for you, slowly killing herself. Whether intentional or not is irrelevant. There are only two people to blame for her condition.


One of them is me and I couldn’t save her.


My father is somewhere out there on a bender. Just another one in a cycle of many. Hundreds that I’ve known in my lifetime. Twenty-two years of booze, drugs and disappearing acts.


I need to drink. And get high.


And then I need to fuck someone. Hopefully in that order.


These self-destructive behaviors are the only things that get me out of my head long enough to avoid thinking about all I’ve done. All the pain I’ve created. The deaths I’ve caused.


It’s just another reason to hate myself and the man I’ve become. If I wasn’t such a fucking coward, I’d be lying in the ground next to her right now, too. Next to my brother’s grave, as well.


There are days I wish I wouldn’t wake up. That I could fuck myself up so much that I’d fall asleep and drift off into the endless night. Because that would mean I wouldn’t have to live any longer with this constant malignant hatred that lives deep inside my soul. The self-loathing, loss and grief that I’ve caused.


But instead, the daylight always returns, making that hole in my heart seem bigger and deeper.

My Review



Congrats to Sierra Hill on the release of Sweet Little Lies! I haven’t read the previous 4 books in this series, but I’m looking forward to reading them in the future! Sierra is another wonderful author I have discovered this year.

Becoming a book blogger has allowed me to open myself up to different types of books. In the past, I typically stayed within the thriller and dark romance genre. I’ve only read one other book that touches on the existing problems with racism. I think Sierra Hill did an amazing job portraying the struggles people still face. It’s sad that people are still so closed minded in their views ,as you will see in Sweet Little Lies. 

I enjoyed the realism in this book. I read a lot of dark romances and I love them, but it’s nice to read a romance that is more on the realistic side every now and then. Lance and Mica are the perfect example of the saying “Love Conquers All.”  No relationship is perfect, but if you truly love each other, you will find a way to work out your differences and face them head on. 

Mica is a truly amazing woman. I love the respect that she has for herself.  I was so proud of her decisions throughout the book. We need more books like this. It was refreshing to read a book with a female character that had so much self-respect. Mica is a perfect example and she inspired me. 

Lance has his demons from his past and it hurt reading what he thought about himself. I struggled reading through some of the scenes. I wanted to jump into the book and give him a big hug and tell him everything will be ok. He has made mistakes, but we are all human. Sometimes its hard to remember that when you are going through struggles of your own. 

I enjoyed Sweet Little Lies and I look forward to reading more from Sierra Hill in the future! 

Thank you for taking your time to read my review!

Author Bio
An English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink
and/or glittery, Lindsay’s the English teacher cliché; she loves cats, reading,
Shakespeare, and Poe.
She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high
sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, Marjorie, and Bob; and their
mastiff, Henry.Lindsay’s goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of
life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers
have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming
from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the
tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look
at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and
powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that
novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing
a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That
could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows
she’s done her job.Lindsay’s hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of
her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants
them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of
the realm of possibility.

My Rating: 5 Stars! 
First off, congrats Lindsay Detwiler on this beautiful book! Lindsay is another new author I have discovered and I’m looking forward to reading more of her books soon! I’m a sucker for a beautiful romance story and she seems to have plenty of those. I’m definitely a fan now! 
In Lindsay’s bio, it says she is known for realism in her writing. I found this very refreshing. I felt such a connection to Marley, because I also have issues with opening up to love. I don’t like to expose myself to the possibility of getting hurt. I have had a lot of hard times and I come with baggage too, so I understood why she felt like she did. 
 My heart broke for Marley when she thought she wasn’t good enough for Alex. Marley and Alex are from two different worlds. Marley has been held back by the tragedies that have occurred in her life and she thinks less of herself because of it. Can Alex convince her that she is more than good enough for him? Can Marley also help Alex discover more about himself?
Marley and Alex are two Amazing people. I enjoyed reading this beautiful story. I don’t typically read books twice, but I can see myself reading this again at some point. All of You gave me hope that maybe there is a chance that I will meet someone like Alex one day. Someone that can be my rock and I can also be his. I would definitely recommend this book!
