One Wild Night by Rebecca Shea and A.L. Jackson - 4 stars

I love everything Rebecca Shea writes and this was no different. It is a very short little book but it packed plenty. It was fun to read, fast paced, sweet and sexy... 
If you are looking for a short read one of these nights, definitely give this little beauty a try.
Here is the synopsis guys:
One Wild Night, Rebecca Shea
Kaylee Rose Burton, kindergarten teacher, has never been a believer in fantasies. 

Living in L.A. her entire life, she knows the glitz and glam of Hollywood is just an illusion.

That is until she stumbles head first into the arms of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor. 

It was just another day for Paxton Myles on the red carpet until the blue-eyed beauty literally stumbles at his feet. 

A single glimpse in her innocent eyes and he knows he has to have her. 

After one night of unbridled passion, Kaylee slips away to live her quiet life, but the paparazzi has other ideas.

When Kaylee’s world comes crashing down, can Paxton convince her that their one wild night could turn into forever?

I really liked the main characters. Paxton and Kaylee just fit perfectly together. They may have very different lives but it is obvious they are meant to be more. 
What is not to love about the unlike match of a sweet kindergarten teacher and a Hollywood heart throb anyway? Didn't we all dream of some celebrity or order as teens? and some of us even as an adult? It was sweet and I was rooting for them the whole way. 

Because it is a short book the story happens really fast. One night they don't know each other. The next they have that one night that should never have happened. The next they are trying out a relationship. It was a crazy fast ride and I enjoyed every second of it.

But, you should probably have in mind going in that it is a different story than what Rebecca Shea usually writes, so don't go into it expecting the same intensity, passion and heartache you usually find in her books. This had a more 'billionaire romance' style. Which I love just as much as super emotional books so it worked for me.
My one and only criticism is that because it is so short it should be labeled as a novella, I can't really rate this in good conscience as a full length book. And since I never give novellas 5 stars, 4 it is :) 
Last but not least, apologies for not mentioning AL Jackson on my review. I have read a lot of Shea, not a lot of Jackson, so it is hard  for me to compare this to her previous works.

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother

Yes & I Love You by Roni Loren [ALC review]

It is always nice when a book surprises you. Yes & I Love You was more than the title suggests. Yes, it is certainly a romance novel, but it also deals with things most of us don't think about when talking inclusion in books. The main female character, Hollyn, has tourette syndrome and suffers panic attacks. The disease affected the character's daily life but didn't define who she was. The author, Roni Loren,  holds a master’s degree in social work and spent years as a mental health counselor, and it is clear her experiences helped her here. She represented the illness well and did a great job at demonstrating how anxiety and other daily things we take for granted made things harder for Hollyn.   Hollyn is very successful in her field. She runs a popular blog and her word is the law. If she recommends your business or entertainment it is certain it will be successful. But because of her tourettes she hides behind the screen and no one knows what the popular reviewer &qu
