~ d. Nichole King ~

Iowa is my home. I was born and raised here, and even though I spent most of my younger years dying to get out, I can't imagine a better place to work, play, and raise my kids. Yes, I like the familiarity (but not the cold after December!)

I've always been a book nerd. I read ... a lot! The reason why can be summed up in one of my favorite quotes: "A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one." --George R. R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

I graduated from Central College in Pella, Iowa with a liberal arts degree in Psychology and Chemistry. Along with my amazing husband, I live in small-town Iowa as a full-time mom to my four adorable children. Oh, and our dog, Peaches. 

When not writing, reading, or taking care of the everyday chores, I love to scrapbook, play board and card games, and watch movies.

New Book Review: "Chasing Rhodes" by Anne Jolin




CHASING RHODES
Author: Anne Jolin
Genre:  Romance | Erotica
Series: Rock Falls Series #1
~ SYNOPSIS ~
Hannah Rhodes has just gotten out of a long term relationship, and she isn't looking for a new man in her life. But after a night out with the girls and one too many tequila shots, her plans to stay man free are blown all to hell. She finds herself in bed with the smoldering stranger from a party six months back and immediately knows she's in trouble, big trouble. And the last thing Hannah needs is more trouble.

Her last relationship took her out like an emotional freight train, and she’s trying to piece back the stability her life once had.

Greyson Holt’s biggest fear in life is to end up like his father, like the man who left him as a child, and broke his mother’s heart. He vowed to never be responsible for that kind of carnage. Men could be cruel and that kind of brutality was in his blood. He never allows himself to get too close to anyone, until he meets Hannah.

Something about her makes him want to try, but a man can’t change overnight.

Will Holt be able to catch Rhodes every time he lets her go? Or will their chase end in heartbreak?




~ 4.5 Stars ~
Holy cow! I read this book in one sitting!!! This is probably the second time that’s EVER happened to me. 

I will start right off by saying that I absolutely loved these characters and the story line. Holt was HOT and quite the alpha – yum, and Rhodes and her friends were so witty, sarcastic, and dorky (in a funny way) that made me connect with them all and laugh out loud a lot. The things Rhodes said, I’ve said. The way she acted, I’ve acted. So yes, I connected with her. I understood her and I really liked her character. Her inner dialogue had me giggling throughout the whole book.

“I love that girl more than life itself and I’ll chase her to the ends of the Earth before I’ll let her go again.”

Fresh out of a toxic relationship, Rhodes wasn’t looking to start another one. Far from it, actually. But of course, after one too many shots while out with her friends, her man-free attitude went out the window. The next morning she woke up with a massive hangover in bed with the very hot stranger she’d briefly “met” a few weeks prior. And so, it all began.

Greyson Holt had one, true fear. A fear that kept him from being in relationships. Until Hannah Rhodes that is. She got under his skin and fast. She made his alpha side come out to play A LOT. As much as he tried, he simply could not walk away from her. He could not ignore his feelings for her. And neither could she.

“Look at me in the mirror, Hannah. I want you to watch me fuck you.”

Oi! Holt and Rhodes were HOT together. Their chemistry sizzled off the pages and ooh la la, their sex scenes were incredibly steamy…if you couldn’t tell by that quote. *Fans self!* Honestly, to me, Greyson and Hannah connected in every way and I loved them as a couple. Yes, they had their issues, but I loved seeing them accept them and overcome them together.

“All the best things in life are worth fighting for, Hannah.”

Chasing Rhodes was a sexy, light, and fun read! I am beyond glad I finally got to read this book. I truly loved Rhodes and Holt and enjoyed getting to know their story. I’m off to read book two in this series, Choosing Henley, which is Lennon and Jami’s book. You’ll get to know them in this book and trust me when I say, I’m sure their story will be just as great if not better! Go one-click!
4.5 stars!!

 “I don’t know what love feels like for other people. But for me, when I look at him, it feels like coming home.” 










~ ROCK FALLS SERIES ~


CHOOSING HENLEY
Author: Anne Jolin
Series: Rock Falls Series #2
Genre: Romance | Erotica 
~ SYNOPSIS ~
Lennon Montgomery is scared. Absolutely scared shitless of love. 

When the floor fell out from underneath her perfect childhood, it shattered her ability to trust. The one man in her life who was genetically programmed to love her left her. Since then, she’s allowed men into her bed and even into her life, but never into her heart. 

Until him. 

Jamison Henley has never wanted a woman for longer than it takes him to make a guitar. He’s content living his life and loving only three things: making guitars, cooking great food, and Martha, his black pit bull. He never chases women, and he’s never had to. 

Until her.

One night together changes everything. There’s no going back to the way it was before. 

She doesn’t want to want him, but she does. 

He knows he wants her, but he can’t have her. 

Will Montgomery take the leap of faith in choosing Henley? Or will her fear cripple their chance at a happily ever after?







BREAKING BENNETT 
Author: Anne Jolin 
Genre: Romance | Erotica
Series: Rock Falls Series # 3 
~ SYNOPSIS ~
Beth Rhodes has always had a game plan. Go to college. Get the perfect job. Get the perfect guy. Get the happily ever after she's always wanted. It is just her luck that everything falls into its precise place in her life. At least it seems that way until her blueprints go up in smoke. She loses the job she loves and her price charming is turning out to be the villain of her fairytale instead. With failures and mistakes piling up on her doorstep, she knows something has to give—or she could very well end up paying for those mistakes with her life.

Braxton Bennett is lethal, both in the courtroom and in the ring. Two sides of him constantly wage war against one another, and to keep the internal bloodshed at bay, he allows himself to indulge in his violent vice. Suit by day and brawler by night aren’t easy dual lives to manage for a man of his status. The only way to do so is by following a strict set of rules—rules he won’t break for anyone. But what if he already has?

On a summer night in the depths of the city, a chance encounter will turn both of their perfectly constructed worlds upside down.

Will they battle together against all odds to break Bennett’s rules? Or will Rhodes tap out to save herself before the fight is over?








~ Anne Jolin ~

I’m twenty four years old. I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside of Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns and riding in trucks. I’ve been married to my handsome redneck husband for a year and we are parents to our chocolate fur baby, Bear. No kiddo’s yet! I am completely and utterly obsessed with country music, you will constantly find me stalking iTunes. If you don’t find me on iTunes, you’ll find me on Netflix because I am a self proclaimed movie junkie. Yes, that means that I quote them constantly in daily conversation and my characters do too! You couldn’t keep me away from a good action movie if you tried. I’m also a planning nut. I love to plan parties, events, trips – you name it! I don’t know if that’s considered a real hobby, but it is for me. 

We were fortunate enough to travel a lot as a family growing up, and I think that helped spark my love of reading. I’m half Viking, my mom is Danish, and her entire side of the family still lives in Denmark. We’d visit them almost once a year, every year and it’s a nine hour flight. That’s a lot of uninterrupted time to read (or in my parent’s case, entertain four children – Yikes!). Somewhere along the way my love of reading, became a love of writing. I wrote short stories when I was younger, and although I majored in Business Management at college, I took as many English electives I could get my hands on. 

During the day I work at my family construction company wearing a variety of different hats and at night, I write! I had never thought about writing books before, but after a few suggestions that I should try, I decided to give it a go. I loved it instantly! Having always been a creative person, it felt amazing to harness all that energy and use it to tell a story. Now, quite frankly it’s all I can think about, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m grateful to have developed my love of reading into a passion for writing. You’ll be seeing many more books from me in the future!

Book Review: "Be My December" by Rachel Brookes



be my december
BE MY DECEMBER
Author: Rachel Brookes
Genre: Contemporary Romance
~ SYNOPSIS ~
I knew the exact moment I’d become a ‘yes’ girl.

December 16th, a cold winter’s night, four years ago.
The night my innocence was stolen, the night I made the mistake of saying no—a mistake I’d never make again.
The dream of a ‘happily ever after' was now a locked away myth. I promised myself that I’d never return to the place of my worst nightmare, that I’d never let anyone get close, but then again, I never thought I’d meet someone like him.
The intense, confident and beautiful Ky Crawford.


I had no plans to become someone’s Prince Charming.

I couldn’t be. I refused to be. My plan was simple—do whatever it takes to correct my biggest mistake, my one regret that now controlled my life.
I was on track. I had plans, but then everything changed when I saw her—the girl in the red jacket, the girl who I was told couldn’t say no.
The reserved yet stunning Eden Rivers.

A girl who can’t say no. A guy who craves redemption. A chance encounter?

It all comes down to this. One question. One month.

Be My December?






~ 4 - 4.5 Stars ~

Rachel Brookes has an incredible talent of evoking emotions from her readers with every turn of the page. The moment I started reading Be My December my heart broke. That Prologue. Right off the bat I could tell this book would be one heck of a rollercoaster ride…and I was right.

“Give me December, be mine for one month.”

Eden Rives and Ky Crawford were two souls haunted by their pasts…by a tragedy. Four years ago, Eden lost the courage to say “no” after that right was so violently taken away from her. Four years ago, Ky experienced so much guilt that now, all he craved was redemption. Both Eden and Ky needed, craved, and deserved a second chance at life…at love. They both thought the idea of happiness was out of their reach…until their paths crossed.

“Eden Rives was the most tightly shut book I had ever encountered. I wanted to rip open the cover, disband the spine, and tear the pages of her story into a million pieces. More than anything I wanted to help her write new words, on perfectly crisp, untouched paper, and to come up with the perfect title for the perfect story.”

Things between Eden and Ky were emotional and angst-driven. Nothing was ever easy or simple with them. Their pasts were more present than ever and threatened what was being built between them. The guilt from Ky’s past fueled a fire inside of him that made him want – need – to protect Eden at all costs. You see, Eden’s fear of saying no kept putting her at risk a lot. It kept her from being brave, from being strong…

All Ky asked for was one month. One month to prove to Eden that she could trust him, that she could be brave and truly live her life without the fear of getting hurt for saying no. It was not an easy journey, mind you, and there were some ups and downs along the way. Secrets were revealed and enemies reappeared. There were twists and turns in the story line that kept me intrigued, that kept me asking myself questions and wondering how everything would be resolved. 

Overall, this book was a delight to read and I’m glad I one-clicked it. There were a few scenes where I had trouble connecting with Eden, but that didn’t keep me from enjoying the book as a whole. Ky was beyond YUMMY and completely swoon-worthy and the secondary characters were amazing!! I cannot wait for Josh and Ashlyn’s book next!!! 

4 - 4.5 emotional stars!! Go buy this book!! You won’t be sorry!

“You were meant to be my December, Eden, but you’ve become my absolute everything.”

Book Review: "Every Soul" by LK Collins




EVERY SOUL
Author: LK Collins
Genre: Erotic Romance
~ SYNOPSIS ~
When you lose the one person who grounds your existence, your whole world changes.

In life, it is said that everything happens for a reason. If that’s true, how can you explain death? Especially when it happens to someone so young, so beautiful, and so innocent? My name is Bain Adams, and I struggle with these thoughts every day. I’ve been through hell and back, somehow surviving the unimaginable. My sister took her life six months ago, and now, what’s left is a shell of the man I once was, a shadow of the person I used to be. Do I miss that life? Absolutely. But I miss her more, every day. I pray time will ease the pain and help my suffering while I search for the answers…but so far, nothing.

Happiness is something I knew so long ago, and now it’s nothing but a faint, distant recollection of the life I once had. My name is Arion LaSalle, and seven months ago my life was shredded to pieces when my fiancĂ© disappeared while deployed. He never came home, burning a hindrance of pain and agony within my soul. For so long, I lived my life believing everything happens for a reason, until now. ‘Cause none of it makes any sense. Why Nate? Why only him? Since getting through each breath is a struggle, I put on a fake persona, pretending I’m someone I’m not, living my life recklessly. Because for me, it was all taken far too soon.




~ 5 Stars ~

Where to even begin!!!?? OMG! What. A. Book!!!! Phenomenal! Fantastic! Amazing! A MUST read, for sure! Holy cow! I absolutely loved Every Soul! It’s compelling, addicting, suspenseful, emotional, angst-driven, and one heck of a ride! Oh, and did I mention hhhhhhhhhhot?? Because yes, be prepared for one STEAMY book. LK Collins knocked it out of the park with this one! I seriously could not put the book down. Really. I couldn’t. I should have since I had a TON of work to do, but I didn’t. I was hooked.

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”

Bain lost his sister to what he and his family were told to be a suicide…and it practically destroyed them all. To say Bain wasn’t letting it go would be an understatement. He knew his sister, like really knew her, and things just didn’t sit well with him. He wanted answers, an explanation.

Arion’s fiancĂ© was a Marine who was killed in action. That destroyed her, it broke her. So she vowed to not let anyone else get close in hopes of not going through that hell ever again.  She kept everyone at arm’s length and had a few rules where men were concerned. Until Bain.

“I love how the simple things with him distract me from the reality and the pain of what I’ve gone through.”

Upon their…ahem…meeting, you could tell things were different for them. Arion tried her hardest to keep her rules intact, and Bain tried respecting them, but fate just had other plans.  They fought (more Arion than Bain) their feelings for each other, trying to stick to the whole “friends with benefits” crap, but yeah….that was a no-go. You see, the main reason why Bain and Arion connected on such a deeper level was the fact that they both understood what the other one had gone through. They had felt the same amount of pain and heartbreak. So, without knowing it, they helped each other heal…slowly, but surely. Just as they both began to heal, their walls began to crumble. They loved and supported each other without question or hesitation and as a reader, I felt it. And I absolutely LOVED IT.

“I love you, Arion. I don’t know what I would do without you.”

This was the type of book that had me on the edge of my seat with the turn of every page. I knew there was more to the story line and I was DYING to figure everything out. I kept coming up with theories and scenarios and yet, LK Collins kept impressing me each and every time. I loved the build-up and the suspense! Gosh!!! It was truly incredible! My kind of book.

Now….the ending. Say whaaaaaaaaaaat?! Oh yeah… CLIFFHANGER ALERT. My exact words while reading were “Oh shiiiit! No fucking way!” Yep. To say I had a HARD time falling asleep doesn’t even begin to explain it. I was – still am – on a high from that book. It was such a roller coaster of emotions from the very beginning and then THAT ENDING??? Yeah. I was WIDE AWAKE going through all the details in my mind….thinking of how things could possibly unfold in book two! Now, I’m not mad at LK Collins because of that ending. I am, HOWEVER, in DESPERATE need of book two. I need more Bain and Arion. Need it. Seriously. Now.

Well anyway, I HIGHLY recommend you read this book. It’s truly PHENOMENAL and I simply cannot stress that enough. 

FIVE FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC stars!
