Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Synopsis: He’s driving her crazy…
Piper West is finally on her own, and it’s time to get crazy. Except that her overprotective big bro has enlisted his ex-cop best friend to keep an eye on his baby sister. With every move monitored and reported back, Piper’s life has gone from “going crazy” to “being driven crazy.” But a searing-hot kiss with her sexy and scarred watchdog is just the game-changer she needs…
Cole Black owes Piper’s brother big-time, but there’s nothing easy about his new assignment. Piper is all feisty sexiness and curves meant to tempt a man beyond reason, and Cole can’t stop himself. Now he’s caught up in a hunger like nothing he’s ever known, and he can’t get enough…
Even if Piper’s the one girl he’s not allowed to have.
No ifs, no buts, I love this series and this is a great addition to it! This is a very moving story, so much emotion! Really enjoyed it and highly recommend! This is the third book in this series and has so much heart break in it! A really moving read, in every sense.
After her friend and sister have both moved out, Piper West is finally on her own in the cottage left to them by her Grandma. She’s looking forward to being able to do what she wants, when she wants and with whom she wants . . . but big brother, Deke has other ideas! He’s moved his friend, ex-cop Cole Black into the apartment over the garage overlooking her cottage. Now that wouldn’t be so bad if Piper hadn’t been in love with Cole since she was a teenager but he’s scarred, injured and shutting himself off from life and love after he crashed the car he was driving as a police officer in a high speed chase after a drug dealer. His partner and friend died in that crash. He’s still not come to terms with the loss of his friend, his career and his dreams whilst still suffering from the injuries he sustained both physically and emotionally – he’s wrecked, but still finds Piper irresistible, though het believes she’s the one girl he can’t have.
Oh boy, oh boy, was this traumatic! Both have been in love with each other for years. Both have resisted each other for years. Both have dreamed of being together. Now he’s a broken man, lost his dream job, killed his friend in a car crash when he was driving, seriously injured his leg, no longer feels worthy of love from anyone. She’s fed up of waiting for him to see her as anything but his friend’s little sister but also recognises he has his own issues to deal with. This is such an emotional roller coaster, you’re never quite certain they’ll find a way to their HEA and when they do it is simply brilliant! I love this story, its a keeper, one that I’ll read and thoroughly enjoy again – and I don’t say that about many books!
I highly recommend this and the entire series by this hugely talented author to anyone who likes their romance with a stubborn, independent, feisty female and an edgy, hot, alpha male in a gripping contemporary romance.
Thanks to the author for inviting me to read an ARC of this superb novel. This review is my honest opinion and in no way swayed by this.

My review of Crashed by Sherilee Gray
Synopsis: She swore never to trust him again…
Fiery mechanic Alexandra Franco should have known better. Years ago, her best friends’ older brother took her virginity and broke her heart-or rather, doused it with gasoline, lit a match, and then walked away. And Alex definitely should not have indulged in another hot night with him after the fact. He’s not the same boy she fell for, and she sure as hell doesn’t want anything to do with the wealthy, ruthless man he’s become.
Walking away from Alex was the biggest mistake of Deacon West’s life. She belongs with him, and if getting her back means playing dirty, so be it. If she’ll grant him a three-month, no-strings affair, he won’t sell the building Alex and his sisters use for their auto repair business. Hell, he’ll even sign it over to them. But will Alex ever entrust her heart to him again, or are they destined to crash and burn?
My review of Revved by Sherilee Gray
Synopsis: He’ll rev her up and drive her to the edge…
Rusty West swore she was done with men. Instead, she channeled her passion into West Restoration, the car shop she runs with her sisters. But Rusty’s aloof composure fades when the owner of the competition comes striding into her shop, over six feet of sexy, rough-edged confidence…hot enough to send Rusty’s motor into overdrive.
Reid Parker worked his ass off to get what he wants—and what he wants is West Restoration and its crew. He never expected to find a shop of all-female mechanics…or the stunning redhead who ignites a lust that threatens his cool. But Reid plays carefully. He never, ever gets involved with a woman beyond one night.
And no matter how hot the sparks, Rusty will never compromise her business for a man…
Sherilee Gray writes sexy, edgy contemporary and paranormal romance. Stories full of heat and high emotion, following stubborn characters as they fight against the odds… and their happily ever after. She’s a kiwi girl and lives in beautiful NZ with her husband and their two children. When not writing or fueling her voracious book addiction, she can be found dreaming of far off places with a mug of tea in one hand and a bar of Cadburys Rocky Road chocolate in the other.
