Melt For Us By Molly Doyle

I listened to this smoking sexy smutty deliciousness on Audible and am sooooo glad I did! These narrators really bring the story to life complete with moans and all! My girlfriend was completely cringing as I forced her to listen to my dirty stories! That’s a win for me as she usually doesn’t even hear my books playing in the background. This one definitely got me some looks for sure!
It was a quick and fun read. This was my first book by Molly Doyle and I hope to read more from her twisted mind soon! Her men are absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to meet more!

If you are going to read this seriously read the trigger warnings and know your triggers! I’m so sick of people writing reviews with 1 star ratings that say “OMG This Was Pure Smut!”

“Ummmm Excuse me Miss! You are obviously shopping in the adult section and need to take your uptight ass back to the little girls section and keep your unnecessary judgments over there! The books clearly have trigger warnings for a reason. Thanks!”

I know I’ve been missing for a bit but I’ve had some personal stuff to deal with and took a little break. I’ve missed the book community and all of you guys though! It’s so lonely without everyone and my comfort books to keep me busy! Thanks to everyone for reading and supporting One Page At A Time! I really do appreciate every like, share or comment!

I’m currently reading Mr. Garcia by T.L.Swan and I must admit I’m obsessed with this world and these characters! The men are chefs kiss and the ladies are fierce and I am so here for it! I’m on my second book by this author now and am seriously sensing an addiction coming on 😍📖😍 I’m loving her writing style and her banter is spot on! So I’ll have some reviews for her books coming at you soon too!

I hope everyone picks up a great book this week and has a Happy start to October! It’s my Birthday Month and I am celebrating by reading all the spooky books I can get my hands on! Hit me up with suggestions in the comments of your favourite must read halloweenish books! I’d love to read them and review them 🎃📖🎃

July is Saracoma Cancer Awareness Month!

My brother was diagnosed with a Saracoma Cancer tumour 3 weeks ago 😭 This has been an eye opener and one of the scariest months of my life!

He had to go to a different province as that’s where the only available surgeon was. He has been gone for a week now and it’s so hard not to be there with him for support! Let alone try to come up with all the fees that come along with cancer 😞😗 He has been taken out of work and had to go on medical EI and that hasn’t kicked in yet. He’s looking at losing his apartment at this point as he has no money to pay rent and my family is not in a spot that we can financially do anything!

It’s been one stress after another with this and I’m not sure what to even do at this point 😭 I’m angry, sad, and overwhelmed all at once and I don’t know what to do with that!

I’ll be starting a fundraiser soon to help him pay all these bills and help get his meds. He will need money to travel back up there in a few weeks after coming home as well. He will need a walker and a cane when he comes home next week as he is unable to walk on his own.

I have started designing some stickers to sell in support of him and will have the links posted later on today or tmrw morning! I’ll also be having some local fundraising events like a bottle drive and bake sale. I will be setting up an e-transfer address for anyone that just wants to donate and help support us. I will have a square board posted as well so if you can’t donate don’t worry! Please simply share my post with the hashtags #bookedwithsaracoma or #onepageatatimedesigns to help me spread awareness for a really great cause!

Thanks in advance 😊 I appreciate all of my readers and am thankful I have a place to go vent and get some support! You guys are the best! Let’s show my brother what we are capable of and get this fundraiser started!

If you want to donate or have swag or books you could donate to my book auction I’m trying to put together my email address is coffeeandchaos19@hotmail.com. Don’t be afraid to reach out and I’ll get back to you asap! Thanks again! Your support is appreciated more than you know!

Sunshine Smiles

Empty, Hollow, Untrusting and Alone.

This is what it takes to perch my dark throne.

A life without living is no life at all.

Being the only one you can lean on makes the landing harder when you fall.

It’s almost unbearable, like I’m missing a piece from my soul.

Although if it ever returns, it most certainly won’t be whole.

Don’t try to fix me. I do not require your help.

I’ve made friends with the darkness and me and my demons get along quite well.

I am the girl who smiles in the sunshine and sheds her tears in the rain.

For I was born forever broken and that’s something I’ll always remain.

Empty, Hollow, Untrusting and Alone.

This is what it takes to perch my dark throne.

My Baby Girl is not such a baby anymore….

My daughter is my mini me. She looks, talks, and acts like me! Attitude and all! So it was no surprise to me when her 11 year old self decided she wanted to bleach her gorgeous long brown hair blonde and then put pink in it. I was a little nervous at first and gave her every reason under the sun as to why she shouldn’t. She eventually sulked enough and wore me down and got her way.

Now I’ll admit it! I don’t have a lot of money as I’m a single mama to these three crotch gremlins so I told her we would have to do it ourselves and use box dyes. I have dyed my own hair so many times in the past few years that I was pretty confident I could do it. So we went out and purchased her some blonde dye and a pink Got2B creative kit. We dyed her hair blonde that night and I told her I wanted to wait a few days before doing the pink so the blonde had time to settle. To my shock she agreed easily and had blonde/almost reddish hair for a bit.

We had a quiet evening and decided it would be a good time to add in our pink. So the box, as you can see in the pics, says it will give her a bright pink and then a pastel pink. We were going to do the pastel pink on the bottom and the brighter pink on the top.

I got to work and mixed the dye as the instructions said and we started with the pastel Color on the bottom of her hair. We rinsed that first and covered it all up with tinfoil. We moved onto the top and did the brighter pink and rinsed that next. I had noticed when we rinsed out the bottom that it wasn’t really pink but the hair was wet still so I figured it may go as we did the top part and it had a chance to dry.

Much to my dismay as her hair dried the bottom didn’t seem to have any Color at all. If it did dye it just gave some really really light strawberry blondish highlights. So I told her to blow dry it and see how it looked. It still didn’t take but low and behold she was extremely happy with the way it turned out. For an at home box dye job I guess it’s not really that bad. And the more we style it I seem to actually love it! She curled it for a friends bday limo ride and party yesterday and I absolutely love the way it turned out! The way it swirls is so pretty and the blond looks like it is supposed to be like that.

I’m thankful that the Got2B is semi permanent and fades out in 12-15 washes. I have done a bit of research and asked a couple of my Booktok friends what products they are using to get the amazing rainbows of colors they all seem to have. We have decided that next time we will try the Joico or Arctic Fox brand. She has informed me that she wants purple this time and for it to last longer! This child may cause me to have an aneurysm yet!

Do you guys have any advice for dying colorful hair for a single mama who’s just trying to make it work cheaper than a salon? Do t be afraid to give your input in the comments! I think I need some help on this one! I’ve never really been a girly girl and can’t do makeup or hair for the life of me! That’s probably why I draw and write I suppose lol

Here’s to the start of my youngest child’s wild tween years and hopes for a happy and fun summer with lots of rainbow hair apparently 🌈 What are you guys up to this summer? Whatever it is I hope you get some great beach reads in! Be sure to click my link tree and follow all my socials for all the latest recommendations! Link Below ⬇️

My Review for Praise By Sara Cate

I loved this book so much! Praise by the amazing Sara Cate is definitely one of my TOP SPICY READS so far this year!! I can not wait to dive into Book 2 in the Salacious Players Club series~Eyes On Me so keep an eye out for that review soon!!

Here is the Blurb for Praise from Amazon:

He calls me perfect. His flawless pet. His good girl. Broken down and wounded by my emotionally neglectful ex, I wanted someone to tell me I was good enough. Then, I stumbled into a new job with a boss who brings me to my knees—literally. He has me do things a real secretary would never do. Emerson Grant tells me I’m more than just good enough. I’m worthy of his praise. There are a million reasons why I should stay away. The owner of the Salacious Players’ Club is not just my new boss, he’s twice my age. And my ex-boyfriend’s father. With him, I am treasured. I am adored. I am his. I’m a good girl, but I’m falling for the wrong man. Emerson Grant knows what he wants—. And he wants me. So how far will I go to hear his approval?

Emerson Grant can call me Good Girl ANY DAY! I mean look at gorgeous cover though!

💫 Grab your copy of Praise Right Here 💫 ⬇️ ⬇️ https://amzn.to/3mkbJKy

I literally devoured Charlotte and Emerson’s story as quickly as I could tear through the kindle pages and I’m not an annotation type person but I saved so many sexy and sweet quotes. I also bought an audio copy as well because I just had to hear what Emerson and Charlotte sounded like! Praise earned 5 Stars from me and I will forever recommend it to all my spicy smutties! SPOILER ALERTS BELOW so SCROLL AWAY NOW if you don’t want to see them! You have been warned!

Star Rating ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Spice Rating 🌶🌶🌶🌶 Tags I Listed: Workplace, Forbidden Romance, Ex’s Dad, Millionaire Boss, Secret Relationship, Sex Club, Taboo, Praise Kink, MF, FF, Dom/Sub, Voyeurism, Toys, On Your Knees, Good Girl

📖My Review📖 Charlie AKA Charlotte was so relatable for me and I loved her innocent yet curious and sassy personality right from the get go! I enjoyed watching her grow into Charlotte as she learns who she is and what she really wants out of life…and the bedroom! I adored Sophie and the relationship these two sisters have. They are so sweet and reminded me of myself and my own younger brother. I really disliked Charlie’s Mom up until almost the end when she stood up to their controlling close minded father. I absolutely despised Beau, Charlie’s ex boyfriend, up until around that point of the book as well. I found him childish, ignorant and immature. I had a love hate relationship with Emerson Grant who is not only Charlie’s Boss and Beau’s Dad but also the owner of the Salacious Players Club. I certainly wanted to shake this man at some points of the story! In the end I was absolutely head over heels for him though and he has since been neatly placed in my book boyfriend harem. His friends are also funny and I enjoyed visiting the sex club and meeting them all but I especially loved Eden! A Smart and Sassy little vixen that one is! I can’t wait to go further into this world with the rest of this series! I gave Praise 5 Huge Stars as I really could not put this book down! I devoured this forbidden romance and can not wait to dive into book 2! Emerson and Charlotte’s chemistry is off the wall. Their secret relationship makes things that much more taboo and fun. The Salacious Players Club sounds like an amazing place to have some fun and I would love to live forever within their glamorous fantasy filled rooms! They have a freaking throne! Who wouldn’t love that?!?

💫 Review Post 💫 📚 Reminders Of Him 📚 By: 💖 Colleen Hoover 💖

📚Title📚 Reminders of Him ✍️ Author ✍️ Colleen Hoover 💫 Star Rating 💫 5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 🔥 Spice Rating 🔥 2/5 🌶🌶 💖 Fav Character 💖 Kenna You can purchase your own copy of Reminders Of Him by clicking here: https://amzn.to/3wmTwSu


“That stuck with me. “I miss you all the time, even when we’re together.”

💖Reminders Of Him by Colleen Hoover 💖 Chap 5

Let me just start this post off with stating that I was a Colleen Hoover virgin until this book! To be honest I’m not typically one to read those books creating “all the hype” over on Booktok and bookstagram. I love to find indie authors that write totally addictive stories for me to obsess over and I generally sway away from the bigger named authors like Colleen Hoover,Nora Roberts, Anne Rice, etc. Not that they don’t write incredible books, I’ve read my share of Nora Roberts believe me, I just feel like they have enough representation in this industry.

I’ve heard great things about Colleen Hoover’s writing and I was afraid I was going to be disappointed when the story didn’t live up to the hype. I am so glad that my curiosity got the best of me with this book because I feel like I would have missed out for sure! The beautiful colors on the cover lured me in and the compelling blurb made me read it! The story is gripping, the emotion is raw, the characters are realistic, and the emotional journey is intense! 5 Huge Stars from me! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book roped me in from the very first page and refused to let me go! I don’t think I’ve ever shed so many tears during one novel. And I DO NOT cry during books! Ok once in awhile but nothing like this did to me! The emotional turmoil this book put me through was not expected and I found myself having to put it down because there were points I couldn’t see to read as I was blubbering so hard. Yet at the same time I couldn’t wait to stop crying so I could pick it back up and finish the book. This story destroyed me in every way leaving me with a thumping book hangover for weeks! And I wouldn’t have wanted to miss out on that! Everyone needs a good cry and a book that leaves you so hungover you feel it in your soul every once in awhile! Am I right?!?

Warning!!⚠️⛔️!Spoilers Ahead!⛔️⚠️Warning!!

Kenna is so relatable and real and I absolutely adored her. She has just been released from prison for being behind the wheel drunk and causing an accident that takes the life of her first love Scotty. She is pregnant when she goes to jail and leaves her daughter Diem with Scotty’s parents, Diem’s grandparents.

When Kenna returns Scotty’s parents still blame her for taking their son and refuse to allow her to see Diem. She must figure out a way to make them forgive her and a job so she can stay close while she does.

Kenna stops in a bar and meets Ledger, the hot bartender and little does she know owner of the bar and Scotty’s best friend. They end up hitting it off and have a wild night in his truck in the bar alley. He ends up falling for her before he knows who she really is. Eventually he realizes that she is Diem’s mother and she realizes who he is. This leaves them in a complex situation.

“Pulling away from his kiss felt a little like trying to put out a forest fire with a nuclear bomb.”

🔥 ♥️ Kenna about Ledger ♥️🔥 Chap 7

Ledger is also known as Diem’s uncle and he lives beside Scotty’s parents house so he could be close to her. He adores Diem and Scotty’s parents fiercely and is worried about Kenna being brought back into Diem’s life. But as time goes on and he gets to know Kenna he starts to see that Kenna is just as broken hearted as Scotty’s parents are and it truly was an accident. Not only did Kenna lose Scotty and years of her life, she has now also lost a child. And that child has lost both parents not just one.

Kenna still writes letters to Scotty every day telling him how sorry she is and how much she loves and misses him. She tells him what’s new and exciting in her life and how her days play out. Ledger uses these to show Scotty’s parents that Kenna isnt the evil murderer they think she is. Eventually they accept Ledger and Kenna’s relationship and allow Kenna to meet and visit Diem.

Scotty wasn’t an actual character in the book but by the time the story played out I felt like I knew who he was as well. All of her characters were so well written. I felt like they were real people that I knew. This was something that I could see easily happening to me or one of my friends in real life. It made me question my viewpoint on the definition of a murderer.

I absolutely loved this book and can not recommend it enough! Especially if it is your first time reading a Colleen Hoover book like myself! You are in for a real treat! Grab your box of tissues and get ready for an emotional rollercoaster like you have never experienced! This book will rip your heart out and put it back together again! I will remember this story for the rest of my life and will be back for more novels by Colleen Hoover anytime I need to really get the feels!

“She’s quiet in a fierce way—a storm that sneaks up on you, and you don’t know it’s there until you feel the thunder rattle your bones. She’s quiet, but she’s said just enough to make me want the rest of her words.”

💖 My Favorite Quote Chapter 6💖

An Accomplishment I didn’t see coming

Lately I’ve been finding myself working on designing my book covers more and more. I have a habit of finding a photo or an element of a picture that I absolutely fall in love with and just have to incorporate into my art. It can be a person or a donut or a flower, and I never know what I’m looking for until I see it, but once I see it that’s it. I’m automatically shooting designs off in my mind and taking it to my Canva program to put it into action!

Today when I went to create a new video for my Booktok something happened to me that has never happened before. Or at least I’ve never noticed it anyways at least. I went to go into my creator portal and suddenly a pop up appeared saying that I had gotten a certificate. So I clicked on the fancy pop up and was excited to find a certificate congratulating me on making over 200 designs so far!

Who knew I had actually made that many designs? And that’s not even including all the cool pencil drawings and sketch pad art that I’ve been creating lately! I’m astonished to say the very least! I feel like I have really accomplished something now! I went from totally terrified to have my work seen by even my closest friends to posting it publicly for the whole world to see and gained a little more confidence with each and every step. I was even convinced to participate in NaNoWriMo this year! I didn’t finish my goal but I did learn so much useful information and meet so many kind and inspiring people while I did it! I’m forever grateful for the experience and felt so much more prepared to write my series after I did it.

When I go back to the beginning of my Canva designs and see the progress I have made I am so amazed with what a difference a year can make. I have learned so much and have become so much more comfortable in my own skin through my creative journey. I’ve found my niche and am starting to find my own style as well.

I want to thank you all for being here and supporting a small artist/blogger in achieving her dreams! Without every comment, follow and page click none of this would even be possible and I am truly grateful for every one of you! It may be nothing to some people but every time I gain a new follower or have a new comment to respond to I get super excited and I love responding to each and every one of them.

Between chatting about all the great new releases to learning about the newest design/blog programs I don’t think you guys realize how much you mean to me! I’ll have to set up a contest for something to show you guys how thankful I honestly am! I feel like I have found my people and a real spot in this amazing community of book lovers and artists combined. 🎨 I’ve never really met anyone else who creates that lives near me, although I guess I’ve never really put myself out there to do that either, and to see that there really are all these wonderful artists and creators actually existing out there in the big old world is so inspiring to me! 🗺 I have even found some authors and artists that do live near me! 🏡 And of course I support them as best I can by buying their artwork or books on my kindle or sharing their posts and pages! 💻 💖💻.

I ❤️love❤️ supporting local and indie artists🎨 and writers 🖊 as I feel that we are the ones working hardest to make it in this crazy industry, doing our own ads, self publishing, opening online storefronts and learning all the ins and outs of our trades either on our own or through each other! So to each of us small businesses each comment, like, follow or simply a share means the world! 🌏💖🌏

So here’s to another year of creative journeys and accomplishments! Cheers to all the small businesses who work hard every day to be able to do what they love to do 🥂 I am so proud to be apart of this amazing community! “Let’s give ‘er hell guys” as my boys would say! 🥂
