Molly Webster has always followed the rules. After an ugly scandal tore apart her childhood and made her the focus of the media's harsh spotlight, she vowed to live an ordinary life. No fame. No impropriety. No pain. Then she meets Zachary Fox, a tattooed bad-boy rocker with a voice like whiskey and sin and a touch that could become an addiction.

These two are so deserving of the love they found with each other. The neglect that parents subject to kids is horrible and the long term wounds that scab but always manage to bleed when you keep hitting bump.
Molly taking time to slowly get Zach to learn the word love doesn't mean abandonment, melts ypur heart just as he is protective of her after the estrangement of her self absorbed parents and their short commings and addiction.
love it the better thing to get addicted to if it motivates you and your significant other to overcome hardships.

i loved how all these stories had something to offer, there's the sweetly romance but then the next couple are all about taking chances and in between that finding each other there's a death or two and you're shattered but you solider on. its like a bowl of the most delicious soup in winter with all these tastes. i loved it.

I cried, and cried and swooned and cried and loved how much humanity Kennedy Ryan breathed into this story. The poetic and hypnotic way of story telling took me into the dark depths of hells some women are trapped in, others never managed escape to before paying with their lives and also the beauty that is luck when you fall into the arms of someone who loves and cherishes you. She pays homage to the roots shunned about the black culture when priestesses are mentioned and practises that give black people a shrine that has been taken from us but still thrives, there's power just beneath the surface.

I loved the story than started it all. Mia is a darling and sure found the man girls wish for. the one thing I wanted to see covered is Ben acknowledging the way he treated Mia as a kid even his sister Tessa be remorseful before we got introduced to Nolan. The other books are more well rounded but the story still flowed.
I loved it and swooned, but there's a chunk missing there. plus its so sad.

He's arrogant. She's self-righteous. I hate him. I want her. I've been turning him down for two years straight. Every shutdown makes me work harder. I'm not a one-night stand kind of girl. She doesn't realize I won't settle for only one night. He's a distraction I don't need. She'll say yes eventually because I'm not giving up.

This story is so well written that anyone who has that obe person that got away and it was amicable, you want them back and be like Garrett and Callie. I loved hiscamaraderie with the kids at school, his family and how real it was witnessing his brothers marriage breakdown a s how supportive he is then Callie is there and they have the strength and support for each other that we all want. the ebb that never loses momentum not to mention the reveal in there just made them more real ans relatable. This story like others by Emma Chase will stay with me for long. Big up to the narrators, they made it seamless.

That smoking hot one-night stand with a former rock star? Turns out, he's my son's new teacher. Oops. But I didn't know that the night I met Campbell. All I knew was he played my body the same way he played a guitar - like he owned it. My libido is still high-fiving me after being self-served for too many years, and we're both ready for another night or two of fun, especially since we don't just have chemistry in bed - we connect over everything. That is, until I learn he's the man who'll be coming to my house twice a week to teach my son the best music lessons money can buy.

And Ellie's perky enough for both of them. For years she's had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard - but she doesn't think he ever saw her, not really.

From the moment Elly came downstairs in her pjs did a weird dance only to find Nicholas and Logan watching her and she complimented him I knew this would be epic.
their story is just sigh worthy. This whole series has been re-listened to three or more times each book. The story never gets old and The way it flows and just nests in your heart. sigh. I can't sing more praices for Emma Chase and this masterpiece of a series let alone this standalone.

Everytime I listen to this book I can't get enough of it or fail to laugh. Matthew is so lovable and adorable and the narrator does this book justice. From the turbulent begins of the relationship between Delores and Matthew through the whole ordel of going from first base, food poisoning to hanging out with MacKenzie, boxing and all the activities they get up to creates the best slow burn of a love they both don't see coming and I love it. The laughs are great. Emma chase never disappoints.

I'm loving how mental illness is openly being talked about than ever before and this story shines a light on Depression so well. We get to see how things shifts, how a relationship is like when you have that monkey on your back. But the story telling is done so well I was really moved, when the hero is describing why he shoots Boudoir photos of women be it for anniversaries or just to spice things up at home, I could visualise it as was how supportive and relatable the herione is. She didn't know he had depression, didn't see the signs but she's there 100% and this is a learning curve for people who don't know about it. I'm grateful I stumbled on this book. Thanks.
