Get ready for the steam. Screw You. Screw Me.

There is this author named Serena Akeroyd. She is seriously a writing goddess. A wizard of words if you will. Everything she writes is seriously gold. She could write obituaries and I would read every single one. I have read several of her books and have never been disappointed so when she came out with a new series that isn’t reverse harem *gasp* I knew I needed to get it multiple guys or not. Let’s get into this amaaaaazingly dark and steamy contemporary romance. But let’s get something straight first… Finn is MINE ❤ *wipes away drool*

Find book 1, Screw You, here on Amazon!

These books are about a woman name Aoife (pronounced Ee-fah) who owns a bakery that a large company is trying to buy out. Being a fiery Irish woman she has refused all attempts out of principle and respect to her mom’s memory. That is until the sexiest man on earth walks in her door, Finn. ❤️ Finn is seriously the love of my life. I love me some bad boys and he fits this criteria perfectly. He swoops in determined to have Aoife. She’s gorgeous, thick, Irish, and everything he has every wanted in a woman. He can’t resist her charms and he knows that he has to get her to give up her place but he also knows he has to have her. He just doesn’t know if one will stop the other.

Finn and Aoife’s relationship is fucking electric. I mean their attraction to each other… I’m swooning just thinking about it. I love Irish guys. Seriously if I could get an Irish man to talk to me all day. Done. I’d be done. I try to get my husband to talk Irish to me. Sometimes he tries. Most of the time he tells me to stop being a weirdo. I need Serena to get this on audio and find the sexiest sounding Irish man in the world to narrate it. Done. I’d be done.

Okay, okay. Back to the story, because its a really good one. I just want to lick Finn’s freaking face. I’ll calm down. So Finn is part of an Irish gang called the Five Points. It is lead by his pseudo father who is an absolute nutcase. Like a nutcase with a heart of gold. Finn isn’t the kneecapping kinda Irish gangster though, more like behind the scenes business kinda gangster. So he is super loaded. Not only Irish. Not only a bad boy. Not only sexy as all hell. Rich. Dear lord save us all. Aoife was raised to fear the Five Points. They rule the city. They are scary as hell but keep shit in line. She never thought she’d end up with a Points man. Until Finn that is. I mean did you read all that. Danger smanger. I want me some Finn in my life. The danger just makes him all the more sexy I swear ❤

If I haven’t sold you yet I don’t know what is wrong with you. Who doesn’t love a bad boy?!?!?! I mean, sure, you don’t marry them. That would never turn out well. BUT these are the guys you have the high school, college, early twenties flings with. They are dark, dirty, and fuuuucking hot as hell. I mean even your good boys are a bit bad. So are you ready for some Finn in your life?!

Are you swooning with me? ❤

Julia Swoons over Valentine’s Day

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!

Who doesn’t love Valentine’s day?!?! I mean my name is Julia Swoons. It’s a given that I LOVE Valentine’s Day. IT’S A DAY OF SWOONS PEOPLE. COME ON!!!!

I have always loved Valentine’s day. I mean not only have I celebrated it my whole life as a day of love — but it’s also a day of presents. I mean come on. Who doesn’t love presents. & candy. & flowers. Must I go on?! Plus think back to those grade school days and making Valentine’s boxes and filling out all your Valentine’s cards. Putting your all into that one card for the boy (or girl) that has captured your heart. Making sure to dot the ‘i’s with hearts, give it a good luck kiss, and maybe a spritz of perfume. I’m a romantic okay… I’ve been boy crazy pretty much my entire life. I have had more crushes in my life than most people. I LOVE LOVE!! ❤❤❤

On this Valentiniest of days I would like to share with you some of the loves of my life. Just slightly out of reach because its hard to do more than one at once. I mean it isn’t impossible but there are just so many moving parts and it can get super confusing. You start to forget people’s names and suddenly you’ve jumped into something with a bunch of people you don’t know. Okay. Settle down there. Julia Swoons is married and will not be acting out any of her favorite reverse harems. [darn.] I, of course, am talking about my never ending TBR list. You have quite the dirty mind… I like it 😉

Okay so there have been A LOT of good books to come out lately. I don’t know what to read next. All these amazing authors are putting out these amazing books and I have to do things like work, parent, and sleep when I could be spending all my time reading. It’s the pits man. So how about you take a look into the books that I will be reading in the next few weeks/months. I mean as long as I don’t get distracted by some other amazing books. That happens a lot. The One Click Buy option on Amazon will be the death of me. For realz.

This book looks fucking amazing. It’s by Lana Kole who wrote Illusion of Escape and Illusion of Death which are both AMAZING. So, of course, I had to one click buy this bitch.. er pussy? I digress. Also, who doesn’t love cats?

This beauty is by Serena Akeroyd who I am COMPLETELY obsessed with. I love her TriAlpha Chronicles, her Quintessence series, and her Kingdom of Verona series. AMAZING freaking books so I know that this one is obviously going to be great. Gahhh I can’t wait for it.

Take a look at this cover. TALK ABOUT STEAM. Now this book is also by Serena Akeroyd, same as above, but this one is NOT reverse harem. But from what I’ve heard it is one of her STEAMIEST books yet. If you have read any of Serena’s book you know that she knows how to bring the steam so if this is the steamiest on then you better bring an extra pair of undies and read it in private 😉

This is the second book in Auryn Hadley’s Dark Orchid Trilogy. The first book was sooooo good and soooooo hot. Plus the main character is a woman of color which you sadly do not see a lot in the reverse harem genre. Auryn Hadley has also written the Demon’s Muse series which is SUPER awesome. She is great at writing super good stories and super hot scenes. I can’t wait for this one.

This is the third book in the Heart Hassle series by Raven Kennedy. The first two, Signs of Cupidity and Bonds of Cupidity are hilarious, steamy, and super swoony. Emelle is hilarious and watching her learn how to live life as a ‘real girl’ when she has been an invisible cupid is so heartwarming. I can’t wait to jump back into the story with her suuuper sexy guys and finally figure out what happens to Okot!

I have heard a lot of good things about this book. It is a contemporary book about a girl and some musicians. I have previously read The Fated Wings series by C R Jane and while I wasn’t head over heels for it I thought it had a good premise and I liked a lot of the characters. I’m hoping that I will really love this book.

Water by Helen Scott looks really good. The cover is gorgeous and the blurb really has me wanting to jump in. I have read the Cerberus series by Helen Scott and it’s one of my favs. Super hot. Super good. FMC is a badass and the guys are sexy, broody, and also badass. I just know that I will love this one.

Now tell me… How on earth am I suppose to pick what to read next?! HOW?! There are so many freaking books in my library that I need to read. So many coming out soon that I know I will buy. Will I ever catch up? No… But I guess that is part of the fun. How is your TBR list looking? Did you find any here that are you going to add to yours?! Let me know! 🙂

Hey! Before I get outta here I just wanted to say again Happy Valentine’s Day! Thanks for taking the time out to read my blog. I love you guys! Find love today. Find a sexy man or lady and buy them coffee. Buy them dinner. Take them home. EXPERIENCE THE LOVE OF THIS MAGICAL DAY. Just know that I will of course be swooning ❤

It doesn’t take much to get ‘Charmed by Them’… Swoon

I just finished another really amazing contemporary reverse harem romance! Who knew there were so many goodies out there in the contemporary genre?! WHO KNEW?! & why wasn’t I told?! Just kidding. I was probably told, but I’m stubborn and tend to stick to my ways. Well I’m glad I’ve decided to venture out because it lead me to find ‘Charmed by Them’ by Serena Akeroyd and lemme tell you… I’m charmed. Let’s. Get. Into. It. 😀 ❤

Charmed By Them

Find it on Amazon here!

OR get the first three books here!!

First of all, I LOVE that the MC is a red head. There is not a lot of love for us red heads in the world. Seriously. I’ve been overjoyed lately seeing so many leading ladies in my books with red hair because I was a self-hating ginger growing up. Even though I still don’t classify myself as a ginger other people do, my hair is AUBURN. But whatever. Red heads have it rough. A guy I work with, let’s call him Harry, well he also has red hair and this is something we bond over. #gingersunite Well we were talking about how growing up people would tell us that we didn’t have a soul, why you ask? Because we have red hair of course. That or we would be told that we bathe in the blood of our enemies and other random shit. Kids are mean. Anyway, so when Harry was younger a girl wrote down on a piece of paper ‘Harry’s soul’ and gave it to him since being a redhead he didn’t possess a soul. THIS IS REAL SHIT. Rant over. I really do like my red hair now. I wouldn’t say I love it but I am more self-appreciative of myself. Plus, I got my red hair from my dad who has passed away so I feel like I should love it. I do. I’m getting there.

BACK TO THE STORY AT HAND. Charmed By Them. Awesome. Our main character’s name is Sascha Dubois which is a really sexy name. Sascha. Very swoonworthy. Well Sascha interviews for a position to oversee housekeeping duties at a home in England. A home filled with 5 very hot and very intelligent men. Like not just intelligent, freaking Big Bang Theory intelligent but they are all smoking and not in the cute nerdy way, in the holy damn break me off a piece of that way. She is gorgeous and uber smart as well so she of course lands the job, which is live-in of course, and starts working with all these men. I saw with instead of for because they really welcome her in like family. It’s freaking adorable.

Well you are sitting there thinking, okay so we got our hottie female main character and she is living in the house with 5 super sexy men. THIS IS WHERE IT HAPPENS. We know this is reverse harem. Let’s get to the goods. You will not be disappointed. Of course since these guys are super smart, super successful, and very dedicated to their different careers they don’t have a lot of time for dating. They also are very close to each other and living together has worked really well since they were in college. What are these men to do for love?! We all need love! Well this is where Sascha comes in.. One of the guys, Devon, is very into the idea of finding the perfect woman for them all to share. Let’s be honest all the guys are into the idea Devon is just more vocal about it. Well the unspoken leader of the bunch, Sean, warns Sascha about this after signing a NDA (nondisclosure agreement) but before she signs her employment contract. See it’s not skeevy. He just kind of brings up the idea and says that this isn’t what is expected of her and she doesn’t have to take the job but it’s just there.

Talk about an indecent proposal. Snort. Just kidding. These guys are smoking, we would all say yes. I feel like the part that appeals to a lot of women about the reverse harem genre is that A. you get to experience several different adorable swoonworthy relationships in one book. B. there is this feeling of the woman being completely taken care of because inevitably some area that one guy would be lacking in another guy in the ‘harem’ would pick up the slack. Plus, women overall are amazing and I don’t find it hard to believe that one woman could make 5 men happy. Like I said. Women are awesome. Girls rule, boys… Okay well it’s probably just me doing the drooling. Ha!

I really really really enjoyed this book. It isn’t horribly long and you fall in love with the MC and all five guys so fast. They are really amazing. I can’t wait to jump into the next book and get to know these guys more. Plus you know #gingerpower
