Review – Frog Hog by Rachel Robinson 

Frog Hog by Rachel Robinson 

Frog Hog – Valen & Hutch is a super sexy, deliciously dirty, intense SEAL novella with hilarious witty banter and major LOL moments.

I love that Rachel has ventured into writing dirty, raw, kick ass novellas with enough sweetness and fun to make them utterly addictive reads. 

Valen & Hutch have such a deep, sizzling connection. One that’s raw and brutal and you can practically feel the heat rising from the pages as you read. 

Nobody writes a SEAL better than Rachel. Her men are always hard, rough alpha males that are fierce about their women and Hutch was just incredible. In all honesty it took me a while to connect to Valen. But once I did I wanted to high five her and be her best friend. 

This book is a definite winner for those that want a quicker read that’s crazy hot, swoony and littered with enough action to hold the attention!

From the International Bestselling Author of Navy SEAL Romance novels, comes something a little more farcical, humorous, a ROMANTIC COMEDY INJECTED WITH ALPHA. 

/Frôg • hôg/ 1. A woman who only dates SEALs

The first time I did it, I labeled it novelty. The second, I was ovulating and extremely horny, the third time was because I’d had two martinis and he had fourteen abs. Fourteen. You don’t say no to that. 

My name is Valen, and I’m addicted to SEALs. Bag them, tag them, on to the next. One ships out, the next ships in. It has become a hobby, a recreational sport, if you will. Their skills inside the bedroom are comparable to their notoriety on the battlefield. I’m pretty sure it has something to do with their trigger finger. I could be wrong, so don’t quote me on that. 

From the moment I met the infamous SEAL they call, Hutch, my game begins faltering. He wants more than one night, and while I wouldn’t mind a double dip, falling for this lethally good-looking frog would be bad for my health. Counting abs turns into counting dates, and dates turn into something else entirely. Forever.

Review – Love Me In The Dark by Mia Asher 

Love Me In The Dark by Mia Asher

Okay, let me just step back a moment. *takes deep breath* I feel I need to gather myself otherwise this review is just going to be me word vomiting shit all over and no one wants to read that…

But, here’s the thing. I CAN’T gather myself. If you know me and read my reviews, you’ll know that I go CRAZY sometimes over the books I downright adore. Like I legit spill every ounce of MY blood, sweat and tears into my reviews. I can’t help it. Some books just hit DEEP. SO FUCKING DEEP. And I try and sound like a sane person but it doesn’t happen. And people, this crazy bookworm has just gone OUT OF THIS WORLD CRAZY!

I finished Love Me In The Dark by Mia Asher. A book that I’ve been DESPERATE to read since Mia announced she was writing. You see, Mia Asher is my unicorn author. I’m an angst lover and there ain’t no one does angst like Mia Asher. She’s my angst queen and I happily drown in all her heart stopping, intense goodness. So as you can imagine, after Sweetest Venom, I’d been left hanging waiting for my next fix. Well I got it, via Love Me In The Dark and this is one high I WILL NOT be coming down from any time soon. 

This whole book is a powerful, intense read that just CONSUMES. Each and every part of me was pulled so deep into this story I felt it right down in my marrow. The intensity of the characters, even now is coursing through my veins. Tingling, burning. Reminding me of the experience I just had. And if someone could erase the last several hours so I got the chance to read it from the start, for the first time, I’d do it. I’d erase it. Just to feel all that emotion again. 

Love Me In The Dark is my idea of a PERFECT read. It’s chock full of angst, heat, passion and connection. There is nothing to critique. With every single sentence, every word, Mia seduces. She weaves an epic tale of love, hate, weakness and strength, of finding that inner passion and need to want better, to be better, to be free. Mia connects her characters better than anyone, you feel them, from the first look you experience what they experience. In Mia’s words you can actually be there, right in the moment. She doesn’t just paint a picture she puts you in the damn book. Everything feels sooo freaking real. And it’s why she’s one of the best. 

Speaking of the best. This is my best read of the year so far! Hands down. It is. And I’ve read some corkers so far, trust me. There was just something about THIS BOOK that hooked me, kept me right there in the moment, feeling, loving, wanting and needing. I never wanted it to end. Ever. 

Love Me In The Dark is a heart stopping, breathtaking read that captivates from start to finish. It’s hot, sinful and sexy. It will own you from the minute you start reading. Prepare to be BLOWN AWAY to another planet. A million stars would not do it justice… Because Love Me In The Dark is OUT OF THIS WORLD.

Two strangers in Paris …

One passionate, earth-shattering kiss. 

He was the artist upstairs 

with the tantalizing smile and laughing eyes.

He was the devil inviting me to sin, 

seducing me to dance in the bright moonlight.

He was desire and need.

When he touched me, my body sang. 

My soul came alive.

But I belonged to another man, 

and he didn’t want to let me go.

Review – Swear by Adriana Locke

Swear Ebook Cover

Review graphic

Of all the books in the Landry Family series, Ford’s book is definitely the one that I looked forward to the absolute most. We’ve heard about the mysterious Ford Landry since Sway, finding out that he served proudly in the military and lost the love of his life before he left. Now with Ford home in Savannah working in his own company, SWEAR tells the story that we’ve all be so anxiously awaiting.

Boy, was it worth the wait.

He’s let his brother’s girlfriend meddle with his dating life and has gone on some of the most boring but at least sexually gratifying dates – all so he can use a yoga studio. Who knew that his last set up would be the one that would bring the most important person he has ever known back to his life. It was supposed to be a quick favor to his brother. That favor would bring Ellie Pagan back to his life – and this time he’s not going to let her go.

Ellie wasn’t the same girl who Ford left so long ago. She’s grown up and moved on. She has a business to run and a chance to have everything she has ever wanted. But there is no mistaking the feelings that Ford Landry stirs in her heart and the heat he brings to her body. Still Ellie remembers the pain of him leaving her behind when he enlisted. Willful and stubborn, no way is Ellie going to risk her heart to this man with the body of a god and eyes that saw into her soul. No way is she going to let his touch affect her decision to simply stay away.

Don’t doubt a Landry. Ford wants Ellie back and he will do whatever it takes to make her see that they have to be together. Watching him fight for Ellie and for their future is heartwarming, endearing and totally swoon worthy. Throw in the rest of the Landry clan and prepare for laughter, heartfelt tears and the greatest unbroken bond of family… real family.

This story is astounding, and I couldn’t stop once I started. This is one of the most perfect second chance love stories. These two love each other so very much even with misunderstandings, heartbreak and ten years of hurt between them. Ford Landry is just one of the good guys that you root for with all your might. Ellie is right to have her misgivings about him, but she’s even more right to see if love can heal old wounds and make their relationship that much stronger. Gosh, I just loved these two together! Do they have just the hottest spark? Yes, oh my goodness, YES! But they have so much more. Time and distance hasn’t changed that. If anything, it’s made what they have so very special.

Truly wonderful! When I finished this book, I sighed with happiness and felt it all over. It was good, good, SO VERY DAMNED GOOD to be back in Savannah. Fantastic, Adriana!

5 Pinkie Swear Stars!

Swear Ford teaser

img_0283-1

Ellie Pagan has a list of reasons to stay away from Ford Landry.

It’s a mile long and was so much easier to stick to when he was a world away. Now that he’s standing in front of her—body hard and chiseled from a stint in the military, suit cut to perfection, and a smirk she could never resist—remembering all the reasons why just got a whole lot harder.

Ford gets Ellie isn’t his biggest fan. He just doesn’t care.

Standing in front of him, giving him hell, she’s even prettier than he remembered. All he can think about is how she felt in his arms, the taste of her kiss, the sound of her giggle in the middle of the night. He may not know how to win her back, but he does know this: he may have let her go once, but that’s one mistake he won’t make again.

Our breathing quickens, the blues of his eyes growing stormy. A chill tears through me as he accidentally-on-purpose brushes his arm against mine. It’s like muscle memory, my body remembering exactly what to do around his.

My knees dip, my mouth waters, and I fight the ache in between my thighs as he looks down at me like it’s me he wants for dinner.

“What if I throw breakfast in afterwards?” he prods. “Does that make me, I mean it, more appetizing?”

That’s all it takes, that one little hint of arrogance, that brings me back to reality.

I flip him a smile. “It makes it less, actually.”

His own smile wavers. “I get that you probably hate me.”

“You’re right. I do.”

“I want the chance to explain.”

“You have the same chances of getting the chance to explain as I do of getting what every woman wants.”

“What’s that?”

I lean in, like I’m going to tell him a secret. Whispering, I say, “Being able to eat all the pizza and not gain an ounce.”

Turning on my heel, I head to the back as his chuckle fills the room. “That was good. I’ll give you that.”

I shrug and keep walking.

“You can at least let me apologize.”

The authority in his tone, like I owe him something, stops me in my tracks. I whirl around to face him. “You don’t deserve a chance to apologize to me.”

“I didn’t say I deserved it,” he says earnestly. “But I would love the opportunity to do so.” He forces a swallow, my eyes glued to his lips. “I would appreciate the chance to get to see you again.”

The snicker that comes from me is unexpected by both of us. “So charming. I forgot how good you are with words.”

“Does that mean that’s a yes?”

“That means that’s a no,” I smile. “That means I’m not about to let you come in here and look at me with those bright blue eyes and make me forget what it felt like to have you rip my heart out.”

He flinches. “I didn’t mean to do that, Ellie.”

“Don’t act surprised,” I laugh angrily. “There’s no way you thought I just went on with my life after you left. I dated you for four years, Ford. And after what we went through …”

It’s me gulping now, the anger so palpable that I almost have tears in my eyes. My hands shake as I remember the fight that ensued after he told me he was enlisting.

“You left me,” I repeat, shaking my head. “So leave me again. There’s the door. Should I hold it open for you this time?”

Review – Curveball by Mariah Dietz

Curveball by Mariah Dietz

If there is one thing I loooooove in my books, It’s the deep, raw all consuming feeling you get when you you’re wrapped in so much ANGST! I literally CRAVE it. The more gut wrenching the better and Mariah Dietz NAILED IT! For me CURVEBALL was OUT OF THIS WORLD! My heart pounded and ached, my breathing stopped then came really freaking quick. I swooned. I laughed. I shed tears. I became 100% invested in Coen and Ella. They have my heart. 

What is it about Curveball that is so amazing? 

It’s was the realness. The power Mariah poured so effortlessly into her words. The tug of the descriptions used that just made everything so visible and clear. It was the all consuming feeling that you get when every word hits direct and deep to the soul. It was EVERYTHING. 

I devoured this book. Nothing was going to stop me finishing it. I lived, breathed and felt every second and never wanted it to end. This was my first book by Mariah, it won’t be my last. She has just landed herself a brand new stalker that has just gone and clicked every book she ever released. 

Curveball, was unexpected and hella surprising. I don’t think I could love it more if I tried! 5 all consuming stars!

Shakespeare believed there was always humor in tragedy and tragedy in humor.

My life proved his theory as fact.

At eighteen I was a single parent moving to this small town to be with the man I loved. The one who was supposed to love and cherish me in return.

Finding out he had a wife was tragic.

Remaining in love with him in spite of her was more tragic.

My mom and best friend setting me up on a long string of blind dates was an ongoing tragedy.

Nine years later, I’ve learned to see the humor in most situations.

My mom and best friend setting me up on disastrous blind dates.

My son’s jokes.

The fire alarm going off each time I cook.

My constant bright spot always adding to the humor was my son, Hayden. But when Hayden had a life-threatening allergic reaction, the man who came to help my little boy became my own savior. His laugh, his smile, and the way his eyes lit up when he spoke to my son made him a beacon of light in both our lives.

But I wasn’t the only one who noticed him.

When I began having feelings for the man my best and only friend had fallen for, I knew following my heart would once again lead to a fresh round of heartbreak.

Love led me to this town.

Lies kept me there.

Would history repeat itself?

Or had life just thrown me another Curveball?

Review Dangerous Hearts by K.K Allen.


Whew what a ride of emotion. Dangerous hearts will take you on one heck of a ride. A book that is packed with chemistry, and a storyline that will hook you and not let go .
Wolf and Lyric both love life on the road and all the music industry brings but with secrets threatening to be revealed, the past coming to light can Wolf and Lyric make it through? 
I’m not usually a fan of rock star romance, but have thoroughly enjoyed reading this, the first 25% of the book I found a little slow but it soon picked up and grabbed hold of me, you become invested in the characters and the storyline and then dear lord the ending K.K Allen what are you doing to us. Can’t wait to get hold of book 2 and finish wolf and lyric’s journey. 


 His heart beats for the music. She’s his favorite song.

Lyric Cassidy knows a thing or two about bad boy rock stars with raspy vocals that can cause an entire arena to swoon. In fact, her heart was just played by one. So when she takes an assignment as road manager for the world famous rock star, Wolf, she’s prepared to take him on, full suit of heart-armor intact.

Wolf is the sexy lead singer for the hottest rock band around with a line-up of guaranteed one night stands. Lyric Cassidy isn’t one of them. That’s fine with him. Women like Lyric come with fairytale expectations, so it should be easy to stay away. Too bad she’s hot as sin with a fiery temper and a mouth that drives him wild.

She’s also got something to hide. Something he discovers. Something he wants …

Sharing a tour bus, neither of them are prepared for the miles of road ahead and the fierce attraction they feel toward one another—a dangerous combination.

Review – Sex God by Marie Force

Sex God CoverHR

Review graphic

Mercy! If all the men in Marfa, Texas, are THIS hot, it may be time to move! From a Sex Machine to a Sex God, Marie Force is back with another sexy standalone that burns the pages. There’s nothing like a best friends to lovers romance, and Marie has written such a delicious read!

Garrett and Lauren have been friends since childhood. Always by each others’ side, they supported each other through Lo’s abusive marriage and Garrett having to return home to take care of his family after his father passed away. All of their friends see that these two are meant to be together, that they have that something that could be very special. Everyone can see it except Lauren and Garrett. One night the two give in to their attraction only for the experience to be a total disaster. The two feared for their friendship and decided to remain the very best of friends.

Garrett has a rather… salacious reputation with tourists to Marfa and rightfully earns the moniker “Sex God”. The man is absolutely DIVINE, and he knows it. He thinks he’s keeping his activities hidden from his friends. He couldn’t be more wrong. Lauren has lost her confidence after her failed attempt with Garrett. Apparently she’s not really good at this sex thing. Now that Garrett has fulfilled his duty to his family he’s ready to spread his wings and fly away from Marfa but when he learns that Lauren feels that she’s no good at sex, he vows to show her just how wrong she is.

Wow, the chemistry between Lauren and Garrett is red hot but what makes their relationship so special is the friendship between them. It’s so genuine, honest, and comfortable. They have a bond worth protecting. Still it’s easy to see that there is a very real and very true love between them. So many sweet moments…but just as many grab your fan moments as well. Garrett certainly EARNS his reputation and made me laugh out loud as well. Lauren is a great match for him but has her insecurities and a past keeping her from all that she wants. It was nice to see Honey and Blake and secondary characters from Sex Machine in this book as well.

Steamy, sexy, funny! Another great trip to Marfa! Great job, Marie!

Review – Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny by Cindi Madsen


Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny by Cindi Madsen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve been around the hockey romance book block a few times and have never seen a former puck bunny’s perspective. What a fresh and fun story! Sweet and sexy, Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny is a slow burn of a romance that oozes angst and pounds with passion!

Ryder and Lindsay’s explosive electricity was unstoppable! I felt their chemistry fused with angst combust! The passion fanned those flames of fire, sparking even more desire. How could I not fall for this amazing alpha who has a sweet side buried beneath all the sexy?!? With a hot, charming, caring, wealthy, and sweet alpha of a hero, Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny felt like a Cinderella fairy tale.

Like some of the most powerful drugs, all it took was one hit to be hooked—because I was definitely already addicted to the way Ryder Maddox kissed.


As much as their attraction is off-the-charts hot, Lindsay needs a delay in the game before she gets hurt like in the past. Her heart needs to be protected like a hockey puck, or Ryder will never score in this game of love.

What if we crash and burn?


I SWOONED HARD, my soul soared high, and my heart was hit like a hockey puck over this sweet and smoldering story. Cindi Madsen thrust me into the thrilling hockey world, painting a vivid picture where I was at the games feeling the ache of these characters and the adrenaline rush of hockey, and it was one enthralling experience. I WAS ALL IN AND IT WAS SO PUCKING GOOD!

“If things were different…I could really see myself slipping.”

“Just slip.” I reached up and ran my thumb across her bottom lip, my blood pumping hotter at her sharp exhale.

“I’ll catch you.”


🌟🌟🌟🌟 Pucking Good Stars 

View all my reviews

Confession #1: I used to be a puck bunny, but after a hockey player broke my heart, I gave up all things hockey. Now I’m just focused on finding a way to pass my math class so I can graduate college.

Confession #2: Ryder “Ox” Maddox’s deep, sexy voice sends fuzzy tingles through my entire body, and I’m powerless to stop it. Which is a big problem since the hot, surprisingly funny hockey player is my new math tutor.

Confession #3: I can’t stop thinking about how ripped Ryder is from all his hockey training, and how fun it’d be to cross lines with him.

Confession #4: I kissed a hockey player and I liked it.

Confession #5: If I’m not careful, I might relapse and fall for Ryder, and then I’ll be totally pucked.


Go GRAB this hella good hockey romance now!

Review – The Boy Next Door by Ella James

The Boy Next Door cover

Review graphic

Ella James, in all of her amazing talent, has given us twists on fairy tales, vices, and a celebrutante and her haunted prince. With The Boy Next Door, Ella is back and to say she has grown in her talent and found a beautiful voice is an understatement. This story is unlike anything she has ever offered. This is a second chance love story filled with angst, twists and turns and two people trying to let go of the past and move forward together. Still the past is never far away when Dash and Amelia are together.

He was the boy who saved her life the first day he met her at age six. He was her first love and the boy who left and never came back. One special night together. That’s all there was. There is no heartbreak like that from the one person that you believed would be always be by your side. Ammy grows up, graduates from high school and eventually lands a summer internship while in college. It’s when her boss turns around in his chair that Amelia’s life changes again – Dash is her boss. The boy next door is back.

Dash and Amelia’s story had me so completely engrossed. They clearly love each other. Even if Dash has felt that he needed to stay away from Amelia, his heart has always been with her. Amelia is angry, lost and bewildered about why Dash has forgotten her but her heart belongs with Dash. Their chemistry simmers but the romance is as sweet as it is heartbreaking. Dash is as swoony as he is haunted and riddled with guilt and life altering secrets. Though she tries to deny what she feels, Ammy knows what her heart wants but she’s scared to believe she could finally have everything she has ever wanted with Dash.

There are no words to describe how incredible Ella’s book is. It is absolutely stunning. I laughed and I cried – a very ugly cry at that. The Boy Next Door is brilliant and beautiful and I’m mad that it’s over. Dash and Amelia held me hostage. The love they share is one built on youth, first love, shattered dreams and secrets. The secrets floored me. The secondary characters… especially Dash’s sister… are vital to this amazing tale. I fell into this book and was so gripped by it. Truth be told I still am.

Simply amazing! Congratulations, Ella!

SIX Beautiful Dove STARS!

The Boy Next Door teaser Dash

FB_IMG_1494244628116

The boy next door. That’s what he was. Dash Frasier—my hero from the day we met, when I was six and he was nine. His sister was my best friend, the three of us one happy crew. Then one sweaty summer night changed everything.

No one understood me like Dash. No one made me feel so loved. That’s why, when he skipped town, it wrecked me.

Now I’m older. Wiser. I’ve just snagged my dream job, writing at a film studio. The lead animator on my project? You guessed it.

He’s not the boy next door. Not anymore.

I’m guarding my heart this time.

But Dash has secrets that could break us both.

Drown the memory

FB_IMG_1494244623114

He runs a finger over my lip, giving me the saddest look. A look that I can’t handle, so I kiss him hard—to hurt—and am rewarded with a bark-groan sound. Then we’re in his car; I’m spread out on the back seat, Dash is lording over me, his body crowding the small space, his mouth and hands more frenzied than usual.

He makes me come hard, twice, and then he kisses my cheek, helps me put my clothes to rights, and pushes the car door open. One look at his tented pants, and I want to do something about it…

But I get in the front seat anyway.

“Your eyes look nice,” he says as he backs out. “I always loved your glasses, but your eyes are even better.”

I give him side-eye at the use of the word “always.” Dash has the good grace to look down, then at the road. When we get back to our building, he walks around and opens my door. I get out, laughing when I notice the party in his pants.

“Looks like you’re having a hard time there.”

“Har har.”

“Maybe you should carry me inside. Sort of in front of you?” I giggle.

I shrug, and Dash throws me over his shoulder. He carries me all the way to the elevator, and when we reach the seventh floor, he picks me up again. He’s still hard when he drops me on my doormat.

I eye his impressive tent. “Pretty sure there’s something in your pants there.”

“You think?”

I nod slowly. “Definite trouser snake. Too bad you can’t get someone to help you…let it out.”

“Can’t I?”

Then his mouth is on my neck; my key is in the door; the two of us are on my foyer floor…and Dash is in my mouth.

Review – Dirty Daddies by Jade West

Dirty Daddies

Review graphic

This book was certainly not what I thought it would be. It was darker and more intense than I expected. Still, Jade has written an exceptional story of young girl lost in the sadness of the foster care system and its effects on the mental health and stability of a child. Thrown into the mix are two best friends who find themselves falling for a much younger woman… a young woman who lacks discipline, needs a stable home and has fallen in with people who truly do not have her best interests at heart.

Carrie Wells has been shipped from foster home to foster home. She has never quite fit in, always making or getting into trouble. She clearly has been hurt by being rejected. Her latest case manager is Michael. He wants the best for her and has done everything he can to see her have a happy life. He has fought his attraction to Carrie for months. Now Carrie is turning 18 and after her last battle with final family she has no place to go. Mike can’t let her go. He simply can’t. Without meaning to, Mike drags his best friend, Jack, into Carrie’s situation. Jack is definitely the opposite of his friend. He’s direct and to the point, but all bets are off when he finds himself falling under the “Wells effect”.

As Carrie, Mike and Jack venture into their relationship there are many challenges. Carrie is deeply scarred by her time in foster care. Mike has never been very lucky when it comes to long term relationships. Jack doesn’t want to settle – he wants a relationship with Carrie but knows that he will hurt Mike if Carrie chooses him. Then there are the outside forces that the threesome find that they have to face on the way to their happily ever after.

This was another exceptional read from Jade West! I enjoyed the story and the dynamics between Carrie, Mike and Jack. It has its steamy, sensual moments, but I felt this story had more focus on the emotion and challenges that Carrie faced. Her road has not been easy, and while she may have been stubborn, willful and disrespectful on the surface, underneath the bravado was a young woman simply looking for love, compassion and stability. This story was angsty, heartbreaking but ultimately heartwarming and an ending that made me smile. Good job, Jade!

4 Wells effect Stars!

Dirty Daddies teaser

Some bad girls need a firm hand to keep them in line.
I’m bad enough to need two.

Two older men who can teach me a lesson when I misbehave.
Two hot bodies to keep me warm in bed at night.
Two best friends who can learn to share a filthy-mouthed little brat like me.

After all… dirty girls need very dirty daddies.

***

Carrie Wells is nothing but trouble.

She’s wild and difficult. Not worth anyone’s time.

Carrie Wells is a beautiful little brat. She’s also a vulnerable young adult on my case list.

She’s half my age and totally off limits. I’m breaking every rule in the book by giving her somewhere to stay when she’s out on the streets with nowhere to go. And I’m breaking every rule of friendship by holing her up in my best friend Jack’s house while he’s away on business.

I thought life was difficult enough when I fell for the girl, but it gets a whole lot harder when Jack comes home early and finds a beautiful stranger causing chaos in his house.

And a whole lot harder still when he falls for her too.

He’s the one guy on this planet I’d share my last supper with. I’d share it gladly.

I’m just not so sure how I feel about sharing Carrie Wells.

Jade has increasingly less to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s happy with this fact.

Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted. Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile.

She lives in the Herefordshire countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness.

She has a red living room, decorated with far more zebra print than most people could bear and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.

 

Review- Captain by Lauren Rowe

My rating is 6 out of 5 stars!!!

6 STARS!!!

Lauren!!!! Seriously how do you consistently pump out these incredibly fulfilling out of this world books? I thought there was no way anyone could compare to Josh for me, but I’m pretty sure Ryan is on the same level. That’s a big statement for me because Josh has been one of my favorite book boyfriends ever since I’ve met him.

The end had me tearing up. This was such a beautiful, sexy, hilarious, incredible book. I’m a bit speechless actually. I’m having trouble forming words, because how do you describe perfection? Absolutely incredible.

Title: Captain

Author: Lauren Rowe

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

Release Date: May 15, 2017

 

BLURB


From, Lauren Rowe, the USA Today and International bestselling author of The Club Series and Ball Peen Hammer comes a sexy standalone romance: Captain.

It wasn’t the way this kind of story was supposed to go . . .
Insta-love isn’t supposed to turn into insta-hate. 

But that’s exactly what happened when the hot-as-hell dreamboat I met in a bar turned out to be a lying, cheating scumbag-player-douche looking for nothing but a little side action. Jerk.

And he has the nerve to call me a liar and a “sociopath”? Assh*le.

And now, three months later, through a mind-blowing series of events I couldn’t have predicted in a million years, it turns out my boss is marrying his sister in Hawaii and I’ve got to play nice with him for an entire freaking week. 

Okay, sure, I’ll put on a happy face this week and act like I’ve never even met the jerk before–did I mention his sister is marrying my boss?–but that doesn’t mean I’ll like it. And it certainly doesn’t mean I’ll stop secretly hating the cocky bastard’s guts. 

Because I do.
I hate him. 
I really do. 

I just wish my brain would explain the situation to my body . . . because every time he flashes that panty-melting smile at me, it takes all my self-restraint not to jump the bastard’s hot-as-f*ck bones.
