    1. 3 Stars for Cree. I don't really know if I liked this book.Cree was fun to read but there was also something lacking. I wanted to see more of Cree's POV and Milly well I'm on the fence about this. This book had too much harmony for me it was all rainbows, roses and sunshine which just irritated me. That it was obvious that there was going to be some shit hitting the fan there was no build up to this so when it did happen. The bitches in this book are all crazy pants and well talk about spoiling [...]

    2. 2.5 StarsWell, My Now and Forever was sugary sweet and funny. It was also a grammatical nightmare and sounded more like a diary entry of a teenager than a story. I am sure the problems I had with this book could be cleared up with a proper editor but unfortunately there was a distinct lack of one. The meat of the story was good but by chapter 15 I was bored and by page 100 I could not believe I still had 100 more to go. There was a considerable lack of plot or even any real conflict aside from l [...]

    3. Thanks to author H.J. Bellus whom I met at this year's L.A. Times Festival of Books. She signed my copy of Cree which makes it more of a keeper.I love heroines who are NOT victims, and Milly definitely had the deck stacked against her. She suffered through abuse and neglect by her drug-addicted parents (ended up being raised by her loving grandfather), only to deal with a cheating and verbally abusive asshole of a husband. But Milly doesn't lie down and die, nosireebob! She gets up, puts on her [...]

    4. Sizzling Pages Romance ReviewsNichole's Sizzling ReviewsSizzling Pages @ Facebook Twitter:@SizzlingpagesEvery now and then I read a book and my review has to have some spoilers or I can't even put into words what I felt. I can't I need to talk about it. So if you go any further. It's totally on you use I am telling you if you don't want the story ruined for you then. Ok you were warned!!!! I can't even explain how many feelings are trying to burst out of my chest right now. I need to send a spe [...]

    5. Maybe later, but not right now. I don't really feel like reading about all the guys the h wants to sleep with and how sex with her husband was amazing. Also from the way Malcolm was described, I though it was Cree! No thank you!

    6. *The author gave me this book in exchange for an honest review.*3.5 StarsA sweet, raunchy ride! The flavor is definitely country charm with a little humor and heartache thrown in. The author’s style wasn’t one I was used to. The main character, Milly, has an internal monologue written with extensive and constant exclamatory statements. The characters all speak in exclamations, even during the most intense and serious situations. They call each other names like “little skank!”, “ho bag! [...]

    7. Having not grown up in the home environment of her dreams, Milly promised herself she would find her Prince Charming and marry him one day. What she ended up doing is marrying a shallow jerk who cheated but she would do it all again just to have his mom in her life. When Milly decides it is time to shed the bad husband, she does it with a bang and heads in her new truck to find a new life for herself. Meeting Cree is just the icing on the cake and he has the most adorable daughter she has ever s [...]

    8. This is a great, wonderful read. Think Little House on the Prairie in the post 50 Shades of Grey world. A wounded, abused little girl now a grown woman dumps her cheating husband, takes a newly discovered inheritance, creates her "Bucket List Thingy" and ends up in a small Colorado town. There she meets the man of her dreams (actually, Cree has it all over Christian Grey), a family of her own and the life she always wanted but never achieved. There are some definite bumps in the road but our gir [...]

    9. Whose parents abandon them in a trashy trailer when they are five years old? Oh Yeah! Mine do!Hey Hoochies! I'm Milly, and I am tired of taking kicks to the gut. A broken family, an asshole husband and the loss of loved ones have left me crying Uncle, and declaring a serious case of the Fuck-Its! I had my heart broken, stomped on and shattered before I ever started on my journey to find my little piece of happiness. With a bucket list, a '66 Ford and wild dreams, I set out on an adventure that c [...]

    10. 3.5 star ratingSweet little romance between a hometown guy and a young woman who is searching for love and acceptance. This had all the feels of a romantic comedy as the guy and girl fall in love with each other unconditionally. A little bit of drama. A whole lot of lovin'. And, a cast of comical characters that will make you laugh-out-loud. This was an insta-love romance with some definite sexy times. There's more to come in this series, which I'm totally looking forward to

    11. This is one of those books that start with a glimpse into Amelia childhood and you know it’s going to play a big part in Amelia Journey. Then we are taken into the present and it turns into being a fun light read you find yourself smiling along to what your reading even laughing at some of the things Amelia says and then suddenly The story hits you right in the face and you’re like shit where did that come from .And I will admit by the end of the book I had a few tears running down my cheeks [...]

    12. Milly is a wonderful and delightfully feisty character that you can't help but admire and adore from the start. Yes she has some issues from her past, but that's what makes you love her more. Strong and Lovely are two adjectives I would use to describe her from the start! Milly deals with a shitty marriage to "the Bastard", but gains so much more in the long-run. Her mother-in-law Francis is the glue holding things togetheruntil all that changes when she is lost to Milly after a brave and (yes I [...]

    13. I just finished this book as an ARC for HJ.honey lemme tell ya, this woman has a passion for writing. I swear I think these characters have to be a part of her real life, or maybe her imagination is just that vivid. Upon reading the prologue, I was immediately drawn in. I just wanted to scoop lil' Milly up and comfort her, and punch her flippin' *parents* in the friggin' throat! As I turned the pages (well, swiped) I found Milly being my newest fictional bestie. Just the kinda gal I'd hang with. [...]

    14. It was a little slow in the beginning, but I think it is more about the journey. This is a journey of a relationship. I liken it to that movie that stars Diane Lane called 'Under The Tuscan Sun' where she is divorced in the beginning and then she buys a villa in Tuscany and it is her journey of healing and it's not until at the end she finds her love (after, of course, dating other men before). This book is kind of like that. The prologue really touched my heart with Milly's parents abandoning h [...]

    16. I hate to say that I ever doubt a book. But I also hate going into the book with a mindset that it is going to be EPIC, just to be let down. So, for the most part, especially with authors I don’t know – I tend to try and start the book with little to no expectation. And I absolutely love it when said book just surprises me and turns out to be such a fabulous read!!My Now & Forever really surprised me. I mean, what a FUN story!!Amelia, or Milly, is 5 when her whole world is shattered and [...]

    17. This book was amazing. Lets start with the facts, I was emotionally drawn to Amelia . I felt so much for her, I wanted to grabbed her through the book and give her all the love in the world. I couldn't believe what her parents had done. It just tore my heart right out After everything she ends up marrying her college sweetheart and gaining a wonderful mother in law named Francis. Her husband turns out to be a cheating P.O.S. who doesn't care about anything but himself. Amelia puts up with everyt [...]

    18. We must first begin by saying---WE LOVE MILLY!Review May Contain SpoilersRaw. No holds bard, intense, emotional, inspiring read. Milly's refusal to give up on life and let it get her down made her one kick ass chick. Abandoned by her parents at 5 years old Milly is left to sit in her own filth starving for days until her Poppy comes to her rescue. Growing up with him might not be normal compared to everyone else but for her it was the best. When she's in college she meets Aaron the perfect all A [...]

    19. Picking a good book on ratings and reviews on is like going to a restaurant and getting the favorite selling entree. Everyone seems to loves it. The description on the menu looks really good and promising. They bring the dish out and it looks tantalizing. You take a bite expecting nirvana but instead something is missing. It's not bad, you can eat it, but you feel let down almost like, really? That was it? That was what all the fuss and buzz was about? Well that is the way I have been lately. M [...]

    20. LOVED LOVED LOVED this book!!! Really didn't want it to end!! I felt so bad for Milly at the beginning and just wanted to beat the crap out if her parents. How any parent can treat a child that way kills me and I know it happens everyday :( I loved Frances May fancy pants and the relationship between her and Milly. I really hate cancer!!! So didnt like the "Bastard" from the start (lol) Was laughing my butt off at the note from Frances to Milly shouting woohoo.The Bastard got what he deserved!! [...]

    21. Cree captured my attention right away. The beginning was heart wrenching and tore at my heart immediatelyen it blossomed into an amazing story for strength and love! Milly had a rough start, a difficult marriage and lost an amazing loved one and was left with nothingd that's an understatement. Karma is on her side and with her kick ass and sassy attitude she takes life by the horns, tutus and headbands! She makes a "bucket list thingy" and starts checking things offn't we all want to do that?!? [...]

    22. My heart broke for this character; Milly. You expect romance novels to grab you and make you feel all warm and fuzzy. This one grabbed me and I felt the opposite. My heart broke for her. No one should have to endure what Milly had to - especially as a child.She tries to find herself and with the help of good friends, a great man and a sweet little girl; she does.As I read My Now & Forever, I was full of angst wondering what else she would suffer through. If she would get her HEA. I won't spo [...]

    23. I'm on the fence with this one. I love this Authors style but this was almost a dnf for me. First off, I curse like a sailor and am in no way shape or form offended by such language BUT sometimes less is more. There are only so many hoe-bags or cum guzzlers etc before I start rolling my eyes. I get that Milly was trying to break out and be a badass who is wild and finding herself but just noo much and I almost couldn't get past itgghh and Cree gave her the pet name of Dolly. I don't know why but [...]

    24. My Now & Forever was a wonderful read. The book took me on a crazy emotional journey that had me crying one moment and laughing the next. Milley stole my heart from the first page of the book. She managed to make a wonderful life for herself and not let her terrible past hold her down. You go Milley you have become my role model. Cree mmmm mmm mmm Cree, nothing I write can describe this amazing man, not only is he a wonderful lover hes a single father who adores his daughter to pieces and lo [...]

    25. This was a very cute and refreshing read, exactly what I was looking for! After reading the first few pages I was afraid I was in store for another heart wrenching story that I wasn't quite in the mood for but it ended up being so sweet! I adored all of the characters and am so glad that they all found each other to form a beautiful family! H.J. Bellus did a wonderful job in her debut novel and I will def be looking out for some more books filled with country hotties :) 3.5 stars for this one.

    26. For a first novel, this is a sweet read. Enough to keep my attention thru the whole book. I laughed & cried. Happy & Sad, so many emotions! I love Milly and seriously loved her MIL Frances. "Frances was the sweetest bubble of joy" and she for sure loved her Cinde-rell-y. “I love you Francis May Crazy Pants!"Milly opened her heart after it being broken and she loved like crazy. Everyone should be this way! Lovely Read!I will definitely read more of her books if she continues to write!

    27. I felt like I was reading a divorced woman's fantasy. It was an interesting idea and it had its funny moments but it was too over the top and ended up boring me. Parts of it were extremely ridiculous.

    28. I just completely loved this book from the first page. It's funny, honest and emotive and I can't recommend it anywhere near enough. You will LOVE this book, please read and then shout about it It'll be a great movie one day!
