Dustin Bridge’s world is about speed. About the edge. His life has been carved by cutting corners and making moves, following impulsive decisions while weighing the facts at hand.

On the track, that has never steered him wrong.

In life, though? That’s another story.

On the cusp of greatness, the world’s up-and-coming racing star seems to be living the perfect story. A hero to his hometown. A partner to his best friend. A man poised to take the throne, to become the greatest, and to reap the rewards and attention that come along with it.

He’s been branded the track’s most eligible bachelor. And rarely does he cross a finish line without a dozen screaming, adoring women brandishing his name on glitter-covered T-shirts across their chests, just hoping he’ll break his own rules and take one of them to bed.

But he won’t. As loose as Dustin may be on the road, he’s become disciplined in life. He let love in completely—once. For one person. Hannah Judge. And she wrecked him.

And now, she’s back.

My Burn Review . . .

Shift took me a bit to get into but then I was hooked.  During Wreck, I thought it was going to smooth then BOOM things take a turn.  After I read Wreck and did the review I have to admit I started to get more and more frustrated with Hannah and how she handled things with Dustin.  I had no idea how things were going to work out with Hannah and Dustin.  

Then I shaked my head because how could I ever doubt Ginger Scott.  She always weaves the story where it needs to go for me to get completely reeled in.   

Even though Burn starts a couple of years after Wreck, it was easy for me to understand the reasons why Dustin and Hannah made their decisions.   

With Burn, it tied all the loose ends and gave us the HEA we had been chasing from the first page of Shift.

I also have to admit that a new character within in this part stole my heart.  Jorge, his kind heart and wise words captured me. 
Whatever you two talk about today, whatever you may feel, be sure you listen and take it in before you react.  If people's stories were only a page long, there wouldn't be books to read.  Take in the entire arc.  Understand the journey.  It will be worth it, I swear.

 I know this series is over but there is something about Jorge that I hope Ginger believes Jorge deserves his HEA as well and can be some sort of spin off maybe.

Dustin and Hannah had their ups and downs and during that journey I had some frustrations but I was happy with how it all ended.  Dustin was such a sweetheart and I always root for the underdog.  Thankfully that paid off.   I adore Ginger Scott and this was another good series.

3.5 Dustin deserves his HEA thumbs up!

Pre-order Burn (3):


When Dustin Bridges left Camp Verde to try to make it on his own, he left half his heart behind. A life with Hannah Judge was just too dangerous. A mountain of chaos and violence was always aiming for the target on Dustin’s back, and that made giving up the only person he ever loved feel necessary.

But impossible isn’t a word Dustin believes in. Defying odds is what he’s good at. It’s how he’s survived. And when fate calls him home, he sees it as his chance to take back his girl, to make his heart whole and to put his makeshift family back together.

Just one thing. That family? And more importantly, that girl? They want nothing to do with him.

When Dustin left Hannah without a word, he broke a promise. More than that, he broke a bond. He broke Hannah. The life she saw in her future was gone in a blink, and in its place she grew a heart of stone and a craving for danger.

But isn’t danger what Dustin Bridges is really all about?


*Burn completes their love story in their mid 20s. Coming July 30th!

My Wreck Review . . .

After the ending of Shift I was not sure how Dustin was able to win Hannah back. But I knew it was going to be worth the journey for them to have their HEA.  

I have to admit as I started to read it I was shocked how quick Dustin was able to get back in there.  Then I was confused how this was going to be able to go into three books with things going so smoothly for them.  Then BOOM! 

I love Dustin's heart and because of that heart he gets himself into a world of trouble when he gets involved with the wrong person.   Then Hannah gets hurt again lashing out and its now Dustin's turn. I did feel that after the Boom things moved very quickly in a different direction.  
 I wasn't sure where this was going to go but the epilogue left me so anxious to find out what will happen to these two.  

Can't wait for Burn. 

3.5 Hurt thumbs up!

Pause by Kylie Scott Blog Tour - #bookreview #excerpt

Pause, an all new emotional friends-to-lovers romance from New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott is available now!

An unpauseable new romance from New York Times bestselling, Audie Award winning author Kylie Scott!

When Anna wakes up from a coma after a car crash, she discovers life has gone on without her. Her husband has been unfaithful—with her best friend—and she’s been long since replaced at work. While her old life is a distant memory, her new life feels like an empty shell. Then she meets the stranger who saved her life during the crash, and he changes everything.

Leif Larsen—tattooist, joker, and player—has his own scars thanks to the crash that put Anna in a coma. Helping her move on from her failed marriage, and create a new life, sounds like a perfect distraction. So when he needs a new roommate, he invites Anna to begin her new life with him.

Although their lives may have been put on pause, together they just might find a way to heal.

Leif Larsen lives in a big old brown brick building with a sprawling dogwood out front in a cool urban neighborhood. No one answers when I press the buzzer. But according to the details on the scrap of paper the nurse gave me, I’ve got the right place. 

What to do? 

The rational response would be to give up and go home. Because hiding out in my childhood bedroom has worked out great so far (and this would be sarcasm). It’s been months since I left the house for anything other than a medical appointment. Weeks since I’ve heard from any friends. Right on cue, my cell buzzes inside my tan Coach purse. I don’t bother to look. Mom requests proof of life every hour on the hour. Not even dinner at the country club can distract her, apparently. Her parental concern for me is well past claustrophobic.

My hand clenches the iron railing against a gust of unseasonably warm evening wind. It’s been a while since I stopped using a mobility aid, but things can still feel tricky. The whole damn world does, if I’m being honest. So many things I took for granted have now been turned upside down. 

This is the problem with living the supposed dream. With having an airtight plan for your life. Meet Prince Charming and marry him. Find the perfect job. Only problem is, if something goes wrong, when reality smacks you upside the head and sends you reeling, then there’s no system for putting the pieces back together. There’s no Plan B because it never occurred to you that you’d need one. A lack of imagination on my part, perhaps.

A motorcycle pulls up to the curb and it’s like everything happens in slow motion. Something about this long, lean man just makes time want to stand still. A denim-clad leg is swung over the back of the iron beast. A helmet is removed and shoulder-length hair tumbles free. High cheekbones and perfect lips are framed by stubble and all I can do is stare.

I don’t know if I’m intimidated or turned on or what.

“Can I help y . . .” he begins. There’s the faintest spark of recognition in his eyes.

I continue to stand there frozen.

“Fuck me,” he mutters, stalking closer. His gaze slides over me from top to toe, lingering on the small scars on my left cheek from the glass. There’s no attempt made to hide his curiosity. “It’s really you.”

Nichelle the nurse described him as being a nice young man. Nothing more. Certainly nothing that would prepare me for this. And I dispute “nice.” Ripped denim, battered leather, and a Harley-Davidson motorbike are not nice.

“Never seen you conscious before,” he says, getting even closer.

I just blink.

From beneath the collar and cuffs of his leather jacket emerge colorful tattoos. Lots of them. Blue waves and black letters. Red flames and white flowers. The man is a walking, talking piece of art. My parents would be horrified. Ryan too, for that matter. Not that any of their opinions matter. I need to forge my own path. Go my own way.

“How did you find me?” he asks with a faint frown.

“Oh. Ah.” I smooth down the front of my pale blue midi-length linen summer dress. My dark hair is slicked back in a low ponytail and my makeup is simple but perfect. It’s nice having some things I can control. “One of the nurses from the ICU told me about you and I wanted to come say thank you. But maybe an apology would be more in order?”

For a moment he pauses, then he asks, “Do you want to come in?”

Good question. The fact is, I don’t know. Nor do I know how to do this. Something made obvious when my mouth opens, but nothing comes out. So much nothing for such a length of time that it’s beyond embarrassing. Dammit. Whatever it is I came here looking for, it wasn’t this. Him. Whatever.

“We’ve never properly met, have we?” He holds out his big hand. “Hi, I’m Leif.”


While I’m tentative, he shows no such reserve. Strong, warm fingers enfold my own stiff and cold ones. There’s no attempt at a dominating handshake or groping. He gives my hand a squeeze, just the one gentle squeeze, before setting me free. 

“I’d say it’s nice to meet you, but that would be weird.” He grins conspiratorially and oh my God. Everything low in my stomach wakes up and takes notice. Shame on my lady parts, but the chemical pull of the man is ridiculous. It takes me a minute to remember that I’m a married woman. Mostly. Well, somewhat anyway. I certainly have no business smiling at him like I am. My life is messed up enough without adding a crush. Perhaps it’s in reaction to me, I don’t know, but the mirth disappears and his gaze becomes serious. A little bleak even. “I still have nightmares about that day, you know?”

“I’m sorry.”

“Not your fault.”

“I shouldn’t have come.”

“Don’t, Anna. Don’t look like that. I didn’t tell you to hurt you or make you uncomfortable. I was just . . . sharing.” His expression changes again, a more subdued smile taking the place of the brief hint of trauma. Then he suddenly winks at me all flirty like. I don’t know how to react. I can barely keep up. The man is a whirlwind. “Want to come in and have a beer with me?”

“Are you sure?”


“I just . . . I don’t want to remind you of things you’d rather—”

“I want you to come inside. I wouldn’t have asked otherwise.”

A drink with a pretty wild man that I have a strange sort of history with or a swift return to safety and boredom? I don’t overthink it. I don’t even hesitate. “Then yes, Leif. I’d love to.”

Part 2 of a series but can be read as a standalone

My Pause  Review . . . 
I adore Kylie Scott so I jumped at the chance to read and review this book.  Once I started to read it I realized there must be book 1 but it did not hinder my reading experience that I didn't read Repeat first.  Now I have something to look forward to after reading Pause. 
First off, I loved the premise of this story and I absolutely adore Leif Larsen.   
Both Anna and Leif were broken in their own way but together they brought out the best in each other and gave each other the opportunity to move forward and heal. 

"You need to stop running away every time something weird happens," he says, voice muffled, but stern.  "It's interfering with our friendship."

Anna's is a bit stunted when it comes to this new friendship with Leif but that is to be expected after waking up from a coma and finding out life is no where near where it was before the accident.   

Leif's character is such a breath of fresh air with how he handles life and his interactions with Anna.  

I adored this story the only thing that left me wanting more was the part of whom was responsible for the accident.  This part felt out of nowhere and a bit rushed.  For some reason, I was expecting more around this but other than that I loved Leif and Anna together and I can't wait for more from the Larsen family. 

4 Leif loving thumbs up!
