Driven By Fire by Eden Rayna

Years of Piper’s life down the drain, when she finds her boyfriend in bed with another women. 

Angry and alone Piper finds herself on the side of the hwy ..on foot! Making her way to the small town of Fort McKay, Alberta. 

Brandon, a tech millionaire is fighting his own life battles. Decides trucking is the way to hide for the time being, until everything settles. 

Luck changes for them both when Brandon comes apron Piper on the side of the hwy. Worried for her safety, offers her a ride but knows there is little chance Piper will accept. Brandon follows her into town, not satisfied until he knows shes safe. 

Exhausted from being on the road and having an instant spark, the one time their eyes met. Brandon decides to spend a night at the same hotel. Before hitting the road again the next morning. 

Only due to the awful forest fires he finds out the hwy’s are closed and he will be spending a few more days in this small town himself.

Both fantasizing over each other and lust running through their veins. It doesn’t take long for the few small encounters they have to give them the push they need.

It’s clear they are meant to be together…… but how long will it take for them to realise it?



4.5 Stars out of 5

Wow!…. Hot, steamy, erotic, sensual, seductive. There are not enough words for me to explain how hubbahubba the sex scenes are! 

Eden knows how to write sexual moments that don’t become dry at any point! Not only that, the romance that ignites between them is so satisfying. 

Brandon is such a dream boat! I only wish I looked like Piper and was living her life in this moment!

A very wise person told me once…“Book boyfriends do it better”. I have to agree!



Thank you so much Eden for sending me an e-copy of your saucy novel to review. Brandon will always be a dearly remembered book boyfriend!



And of course thank you all for reading

As most of you know I am a Bookstagrammer!

If you don’t know what Bookstagram is, where have you been? …

Bookstagram is the book community of Instagram that is bursting with stunning photos of books and bookish items.




Anyhow, I digress. That is not the reason for my topic today.

Although Bookstagram does bring my attention to these much-needed items that all book lovers need! As well as incredible people with amazing talents that need to be shared.

Wayword Wax being one of them!


I met the marvelous Natasha through the book community on Instagram around a year ago now…. Not knowing she had a hidden talent! Shortly after getting to know her, I found out she makes the most amazing candles.

Which of course I had to share with you all on my blog!

What book lover doesn’t want a delicious smelling candle burning in the room. Filling the air with heavenly scents while you sit back, snuggled under a cozy blanket with a hot drink and great book?

And of course me going back to my bookstagram ways, they make for gorgeous photos to share.

Not only can you purchase individual candles, as she posts her new creations. She also has a monthly candle subscription box with different monthly themes…AMAZING!


Please note Wayword Wax only ships within Canada. I am sorry all my international friends. Of course we have the overly priced shipping costs to blame for that!… I know you understand.

Perhaps with enough demand this could change in the future?

Book Cover Buys

I know every book lover has heard the term “don’t judge a book by its cover”.. right?

Can you honestly sit there and say you have never done it?

We all have, I am pretty sure of that. How can you not, some covers just pull you in with their beauty. Isn’t that what the cover is there for, to give some sort of preview of what’s on the inside.

Although I don’t always believe judging a book by its cover is a bad thing. A lot of books I picked up just for their beautiful covers became some of my all time favourite reads. I have also found new favourite authors this way as well.

I will say  there are some types of covers that turn me away from the book, causing me not to pick it up. This I need to get over, who knows what amazing adventures I may be missing out on.

What are some cover buys you picked up? I would love to know, maybe I need to add them to my never-ending… slowly taking over the world list.

And of course thanks for reading

A Huge Thank You to Harlequin Books (HQN Books)

Flare Up (Boston Fire) by Shannon Stacey

Published by Carina Press on January 29, 2019

Nursing a broken heart while everybody around him seems to be drowning in happiness has Grant Cutter wondering whether staying with Engine 59—or even Boston Fire—is in his future. It’s tempting as hell to pack up what fits in his Jeep and hit the road. But then a 911 call brings the woman who shattered his heart back into his life, and he knows he won’t ever be able to fully leave her in his rear-view mirror.

For a few months, Wren Everett had thought the nightmare of her past was behind her and she might live happily ever after with Grant. Until she got the phone call letting her know the time her ex had spent in jail for assault hadn’t cooled his temper or determination that she belonged with him. Cutting ties with Grant was the hardest thing she’d ever had to do, but it was also the only way to keep him safe.

Now that Grant is back, he’s not letting Wren push him away again. And even with the trust issues between them, Wren dares to hope she and Grant might have a future together after all…if they’re willing to fight for it.

The Object Of Your Affections by Falguni Kothari

Published by Graydon House on February 19, 2019

Two best friends rewrite the rules of friendship, love and family…and change everything they thought they knew about motherhood

Paris Kahn Fraser has it all—a successful career as an assistant district attorney, a beautiful home in New York City, and a handsome, passionate husband who chose her over having a family of his own. Neal’s dream of fatherhood might have been the only shadow in their otherwise happy life…until Paris’s best friend comes to town.

Naira Dalmia never thought she’d be a widow before thirty. Left reeling in the aftermath of her husband’s death, all she wants is to start over. She trades Mumbai for New York, and rigid family expectations for the open acceptance of her best friend. After all, there isn’t anything she and Paris wouldn’t do for each other.

But when Paris asks Naira to be their surrogate, they’ll learn if their friendship has what it takes to defy society, their families and even their own biology as these two best friends embark on a journey that will change their lives forever.

Stroke Of Luck (Sterling’s Montana) by B.J. Daniels

Published by HQN Books on February 19, 2019

He’s hoping to bury the past. She’s ready to settle the score.

The Sterling Ranch’s season opening isn’t going so smoothly. With the ranch’s lodge full of guests and a Montana blizzard threatening, Will Sterling needs help—and he needs it fast. So when his childhood friend Poppy Carmichael agrees to lend a hand, he’s grateful for a second chance…and more enticed by the woman she’s become than he cares to admit.

For Poppy, it was supposed to be a retreat full of horse rides and hoedowns—with a side of showing Will what he’s been missing all these years. But as the snow deepens outside, the guests’ suspicion and mistrust turn sinister inside, catching Will and Poppy in the cross hairs.

Weathering the storm in each other’s arms is all too easy for Will and Poppy, but will a confrontation with a killer mean their reunion is short-lived?

Book Shopping

Who doesn’t love Book Shopping?

Oh how it warms my heart.

My most favourite place in the world is Chapters Indigo (It is the Canadian Barnes and Noble.. hehe).

As soon as I walk into Chapters it’s like walking into a warm hug! I know that sounds sappy but it’s true. All the gorgeous books, colors, cozy items. It truly is heaven on earth. Not to forget it is a great place for the whole family to enjoy AND the built-in Starbucks is A…MA…ZING.

Grab a delicious, nummy, HOT coffee and browse the world of books…. Mmmm. As I said HEAVEN.


Now Chapters is my favourite bookstore alive and I love the buzz of buying new books. But I am constantly on the hunt for amazing used bookstores as well. The nostalgia of walking around a store with all the used books that have been so well-loved and now will be passed on to another fellow book lover. I also personally love giving used books a new home. Don’t forget the smell, I love the smell of older books. Yes I will proudly admit I am a Book-sniffer. Don’t you hide, yes you out there! I know you do it too…. Yes I am looking at you!

So far one of my favourite used bookstores I have found in my area is called Wee Book Inn. So adorable, and each store has an adorable, cuddly, loving, fuzzy..CAT. Soooo sweet.


Online book shopping!…Eeeekkkkk.

Very exciting! The suspense while you wait for your order to come in. Sometimes even forgetting all that you purchased and being surprised all over again.

Doesn’t matter where you are buying from, being BookOutlet, Book Depository, Amazon, Chapters Online, etc…. as the list is never-ending. Online book shopping is a wonder.

I mean the books come right to your door. Which means you don’t even have the put the book you are currently reading down in order to get more BOOKS!

It is like Christmas with each package that comes in!


Now who are my library lovers out there?

I adore the library… unfortunately my local library has next to nothing on the shelves, they are just so bare. I rarely ever see a newer released book there either. BUT! that being said my boys and I still go, I still renew my card each year and I use their audiobook app as well. library’s are so important to have and it is critical in my eyes that we bring our children and show them the world of reading. Getting to pick up a book, reading the words on the page yet create a whole story in our minds. I would be lying if I didn’t say every now and then I don’t find a true hidden gem at my local library.


Where do you buy your books from?.. Maybe you don’t and you just use the library.

Share with me as I would love to hear!

And of course thank you all for reading
