Sunshine & Whiskey by RL Griffin Review!




Title: Sunshine & Whiskey
Author: R.L. Griffin
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Cover Designer: Silver Plum Creations
Release Date: April 21st, 2015
S & W Book Cover front 
 Sometimes the best things in life come from the unexpected. So if you lower your expectations, then you’ll never be disappointed. Sound cheesy? It is, but it's also true. Clich├ęs come from a grain of truth…like a man with a Porsche is compensating for something, or once a cheater always a cheater—you get the idea. Sorry, I digress. I'm supposed to be telling you what this book is about. I'm Megan Walker, a lawyer at one of the hottest boutique law firms in Atlanta. I'm on the fast track to making partner and have my entire life planned out...or I did. We all know how that goes, right? Best laid plans and all that. Life just threw me a couple curveballs, so I've set out to take things into my own hands. By throwing caution to the wind and getting out of my A-type personality bubble, I'm learning more about myself than I have in my twenty-seven years. Sound like a chick flick, doesn't it? It’s not.

So, I've got to say two things first and foremost.... Are you ready?

#1) Thank you to the fabulous author for the ARC in exchange for an honest review. As always, I am happy to provide that and am so looking forward to your next story!

#2) this book review is being written while I'm listening to Pandora's 90s R&B station... It really is as wonderful as Mrs. Griffin makes it sound! Currently playing is some Boyz II Men! Not gonna lie- each time an artist was mentioned in this book, whether I knew the artist or not, I put a pause on the reading and went to youtube. ;) 
.... Oh, no. Now Pony by Ginuwine is playing. How apt. Mmmmm, Magic!

So, let me go ahead and put this out there. I've read just about everything this author has published. It may be safe to say, I'm a big fan. I also have a serious girl crush because she lives in Atlanta, which is not even an hour from me, and I think about how freaking awesome it would be to sit down and drink a few glasses of wine (or whiskey) with her. I mean, I know after reading this book especially, I'd be around a likeminded friend!

Ok, enough of that for now-- let's focus!

If you've read Razorblade Kisses and loved it, that's fantastic...but it's nothing like this book. Please don't take that wrong or think that I disliked RBK OR Sunshine & Whiskey. I loved both. I loved that they were so vastly different, but you can totally tell the same author has written both. R.L. has this way of writing that feels like your best friend is telling you this epic story. It's always so relatable, so personable, so real. Not filled with filler words and synonyms stolen from a thesaurus to make it sound super fancy. I love that. This book is... light. Sure, it has aspects of hardship, sadness, and hurt but we don't live there when we read this book. This book has a way of touching on many different emotions, but without making you feel like you need to sob uncontrollably or hurl. I love, love, LOVE a good angsty book! However, every once in a while, I need a break. I need a book that will make me feel it, buy into the story, but fill me with more light than dark. This book definitely does that.

Following Megan and Laura's journey is so fun. I'm stupid jealous of fictional characters, but I guess that's not really that new of a feeling, haha. In this instance, I'm jealous of the adventure. I'm jealous of the traveling cross-country. I'm jealous of the traveling and having serious quality best friend time like that. I love that Megan really finds who she is now. Not the girl she was in high school, not law school or in a relationship. She finds herself on her own, then she finds someone who truly loves the person she is. Ah, Magic. And Meat. Both sound...delicious. Can't wait until there's more to read for all of the characters in this story. 

This is a blissfully short review because I don't want there to be spoilers. However, I will say...Laura needs to get herself together and REALIZE! Sounds like she's got something really great and I hope she doesn't let it get away...

Also...currently listening to Let's Get Married by Jagged Edge ;)

Sauls -   014 
 R.L. Griffin published her first book in 2004. After that she focused on practicing law. A few years ago she began writing the By A Thread series, which is out now. Her goal is to keep readers on their toes, whether it's the plot twist or the book itself, her books are outside any box. There is a little bit of grit in most of her books and a ton of cussing. Most books are enjoyed better with a glass of wine, or whiskey, whatever your poison may be. She lives in Atlanta with her husband, kid and dogs. She loves to travel and meet readers.

Silver Bastard by Joanna Wylde!

Meet Puck & Becca on April 7th! 

Barnes & Noble:


First in the new Silver Valleys Series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club novels. 

Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward-- full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That's when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything into motion. Before the night ended, he'd violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.

Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She's been terrified of him ever since, but she's even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from...But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She's living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can't ignore. She has to go back, and there's only one man she can trust to go with her- the ex-con biker who rescued her once before.

Puck will help her again, but this time it will be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants...

Deep by Kylie Scott

deep teaser 8.jpg

“Where have you been?” My sister rushed forward, catching me up in a tight hug. “I’ve been trying to call you all day. We checked everywhere and couldn’t find you.”
“Sorry. I just needed some alone time.” I squeezed her back, unable to stop from smiling. The thought of Anne turning her back on me had scared me more than I liked to admit.
“Well, I get you might want that.” She stepped back. “But you could have told someone.”
“You can’t just disappear like that.” And Ben kept right on frowning. “Shit, Liz, you’re pregnant.”
“Don’t upset her,” snapped Anne.
Ben ignored her. “I don’t know what the hell’s going on in your head. But you need to let me know where you are.”
My eyebrows went up and my mouth opened, ready to rip him a new one.
“She doesn’t answer to you. She’ll let you know if and when she decides to let you know,” said Mal, laying down the law to his bandmate before turning my way. “You will text your sister next time you decide to go wandering for a day, understood?”
My mouth, it still hung open.
“Christ, man.” Over and over, Ben’s hands rolled into tight fists before releasing again. “Can you cut the shit and get off my back for a fucking minute?”
“Don’t swear at him.” My usually sensible and staid sister poked a finger dead center in Ben’s broad chest. “You’re the one that caused this mess, thank you very much. She might still be a little young and naive, but you’re definitely old enough to know better.”
“That’s right.” Standing about as tall as a skyscraper, despite only coming up to Ben’s nose, Mal stared him down. Or up. Whatever. “This is a family matter. You can leave, thanks.”

And all because of one big mistake in Vegas with Ben Nicholson, the irresistibly sexy bass player for Stage Dive. So what if Ben's the only man she's ever met who can make her feel completely safe, cherished, and out of control with desire at the same time? Lizzy knows the gorgeous rock star isn't looking for anything more permanent than a good time, no matter how much she wishes differently.

Ben knows Lizzy is off limits. Completely and utterly. She's his best friend's little sister now, and no matter how hot the chemistry is between them, no matter how sweet and sexy she is, he's not going to go there. But when Ben is forced to keep the one girl he's always had a weakness for out of trouble in Sin City, he quickly learns that what happens in Vegas, doesn't always stay there. Now he and Lizzie are connected in the deepest way possible...but will it lead to a connection of the heart?
