Review – We Own Tonight by Corinne Michaels


We Own Tonight by Corinne Michaels

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I read a romance by Corinne Michaels, I can never write a review right away. I have to allow time to process the feels that I hope flow into words. I have to let the wondrous words of this writer sink in—saturating me—as I ponder the book that blew me away. Always.

Oh We Own Tonight! I began this love story smiling in amusement and ended it smiling in swoon with all the tears in between, as We Own Tonight ROCKED MY WORLD! We Own Tonight is a roller coaster of a romance that twists, turns, and tears at the heart, a riveting ride of smolder, swoon, and sorrow. We Own Tonight is an ALL-STAR story of fate and feels that is SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE! I was thoroughly RAVAGED by this romance!

As a teen, I crushed on boy bands like New Kids on the Block and could not help but have that pop or rock star fantasy, one Corinne Michaels effortlessly brings to life with her believable words. Picture yourself as a heroine who has been through hell, putting yourself last, and you finally say ‘screw it.’ For one night, you’ll have fun. For one night, you’ll forget your troubles. For one night, you’ll live a fantasy. Now what if for one night your teen crush makes your fantasy comes true? The big WHAT IF became my ‘what if’ moment too.

Heather is the heroine I quickly admired and loved. She has lived through hell and is strength in spades…so selfless too. A beauty inside and out with a quick wit I loved even more.

A childhood fantasy comes to life when Heather and Eli Walsh cross paths. Eli Walsh is as hot as his name, a pop star with a huge heart. The man of teen Heather’s dreams is suddenly very real. 

“What do you want to happen, Heather?”

Eli’s eyes smolder as he tugs me close.

Oh. Fuck. Me

One night is all they have. Eli and Heathers’ chemistry is combustible, a powerful fuse of FIRE and FATE.

“A real man eats pussy.”

One night is full of heat, so HOT I burned too. Eli’s dirty and delicious mouth made me wanton!

There’s a pull between us, and I know she felt it.

WOT_Teaser 8_7

One night of passion and lingering promise that pulled me…one I FELT TOO. The push and pull made me breathless. The angst made me bite my nails. I felt the RUSH of this romance … so raw … so relentless. 

“I’m relentless in pursuing what I want.”

One night that has to be enough for Heather—a bittersweet end—but for Eli, it’s only begun. Oh did I FALL HARD for the pop star hero who hijacked my heart from the start. I fell hard for the heroine, so filled with strength and sass along with an inner beauty that glowed. I fell hard for the secondary cast of characters who were the icing on the cake of this delectable tale. I FELL HARD FOR IT ALL!

“You feel it too.”

Every word read in We Own Tonight is one you’ll feel with your WHOLE HEART. This love story shines like a bright diamond with a heartfelt hero and heroine, sparking to life, where you’ll FEEL ALIVE! I felt We Own Tonight as if it were my story too. I felt every bit of passion … every blow of pain … every word … EVERYTHING!!! 


“What are you doing to me?”

He smiles.

“I’m making you feel how you make me feel—helpless.”

We Own Tonight is an INTOXICATING INFERNO OF FEELS that sparks straight to the heart—hitting it hard—where every sensation is felt!!! This romance reached in and grabbed my heart that it held it in its hands, crushing it, and then slowly bringing back to life … so many times.

While We Own Tonight is a love story and fantasy come to life; it’s so MUCH MORE! It’s a tale twisted around fate. It’s a story about LIFE AND LIVING. It’s about taking that LEAP OF FAITH…LIVING FOR THE MOMENT…LIVING LIFE NOW. EVERY WORD MATTERS that Corinne Michaels pens to life. You can’t help but feel a bit of this author through her words, words that are ALL THAT and more.

We Own Tonight OWNED every ounce of me—from my shattered and soaring heart to my swoon-filled soul. We Own Tonight stole my heart and soul, taking my tears too. This fantasy of feels made me SWOON in spades and rendered me BREATHLESS. I want this whole freakin’ fairytale! I want to feel this story again and again. I’m still BLOWN AWAY as I bask in UTTER BOOK BLISS, my head stuck in the clouds, where I want We Own Tonight to remain my forever fantasy. 

“And what if you realize I’m not worth more?”

He shakes his head.

“What if you’re worth it all?”

From New York Times Bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a sexy new STANDALONE romance novel.

I’m not a one-night stand kind of woman. I’m especially not the woman who has a few drinks at a concert and ends up in bed with my childhood celebrity crush, Eli Walsh.

However, that’s exactly where I find myself.

What’s a girl to do after a drunken mistake? Run. I grab my clothes and get away from the powerful, irresistible, and best-sex-of-my-life superstar as fast as I can. His gorgeous green eyes, rock-hard body, and cocky smile have no place in my world. My life is complicated enough.

Someone forgot to tell him that.

Eli is relentless. Pushing his way into my heart, wearing me down, proving he’s nothing like I assumed, and everything I need. But when my world shatters to pieces, he holds the broken bits together. Unwillingly, I fall desperately in love with him.

He made me think we’d have forever . . . I should’ve listened when he said we could only own tonight.

Review – Long For Me by Stacey Lynn 

HOLY HOTNESS!!!  Stacey has written the hottest story yet.  While it does contain BDSM,  there is so much more to the story. I guarantee you won’t put it down until you finish. 
Rebecca grew up around abuse.  Her father user to beat her mother and then her.  This makes her hold back in relationships with men.  She simply can’t trust  that they will not hurt her. 
Bennett is not only her boss,  but soon to be dom.  After pleading from her best friend Miranda,  to join her and her man at Luminous for new year’s Eve .  She has no problem putting her foot down to refuse.  In the end,  she gives in but never expected to see her boss on stage doing a scene.  He makes eye contact across the room,  and the rest is history. 
Watching these two go through the ups and downs of this relationship was completely mesmerizing.  This definitely a must read for steam and emotions. 

Long for Me by Stacey Lynn
Publisher: Carina Press
Release Date: September 4th, 2017


My boss already controls my days; do I want to give him my nights, as well? 


I’ve seen what happens when you give everything to a man. That’s not what I want. I won’t have my heart crushed in anyone’s fist.

Then he changed everything.

Him. Bennett Ashby. My boss.

Seeing him at Luminous, dressed in leather pants and wielding a whip…

Do I crave this? 

My mind says no, but my body is starting to have very different ideas.



I knew Rebecca Morales would be the perfect assistant. That’s why I hired her.  

I didn’t know that working with her every day would lead to temptation—to own her, to possess her.

When she walked into Luminous, I knew I was screwed. Dipping your pen in the company ink is never smart, but we both agreed what happens at the club stays there.

One night and then it’s back to business tomorrow.

Except I don’t want just one night with Rebecca. I want them all.

Review – Eye Candy Anthology

EyeCandy (1) (1)

Eye Candy by Tijan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sometimes you need a quick fix when reading, especially if you are a busy mama or have a demanding job. You need a tale that is going to tempt you to read further but one that you can quickly gobble up in one sitting. You need a test drive into new author territory before jumping behind the wheel. Anotholgies like Eye Candy are the perfect places to test drive authors’ words before you thrust full throttle into their books.

When you always wish your favorite authors would write a bit more about their beloved characters that you love and then your wish is granted from a genie called the anthology. The Eye Candy anthology, a collection of short stories from many amazing authors in one book, is that glorified quickie we readers sometimes crave….that wham-bam-thank you, sir or ma’am.

As I only met two series out of the five that the Eye Candy anthology features, I read and reviewed those.


Smoldering sex, sweet surprises, endearing moments, Halloween haunts, and friends who are family make up So Much More!  J. Daniels gives readers with more Bama Boys, back to the series of Southern sass, steam and swoon. Each Eye Candy chapter blesses us with a Bama Boy’s point-of-view, an insight into what’s happened since the series stopped.

Ben and Mia return and they are as cute and captivating as ever, especially as parents who still are hot for each other. Their family life is so sweet…so endearing and I loved the sneak peek into their life with littles.

This need—this overwhelming desire to taste and touch and fuck this woman never goes away. Never lessens in the slightest. It’s always there.

Reed and Beth keep the kink in marriage and you have to applaud their Christian Grey creativity. One word: rope! I missed Reed’s deliciously dirty mouth and loved getting a taste.

“Watching you with that rope is driving me crazy. Because I know what you can do with that rope, Reed. I know exactly what you can do with it. And I want that.”

Luke and Tessa are still as feisty as ever and always entertaining couple. I like my alphas a little tarnished and perfectly imperfect, and Luke is all that and more. Tessa always makes me both laugh and gasp in shock…no filter. I LOVE her and still want to be her bestie! 

I shouldn’t get off on riling Tessa up and getting a helluva lot of lip from her, but I do. And she gets off on giving it.

Tully and Riley…the best for last and oh do they have a sweet surprise! Tully is still my favorite Bama boy who is entertaining and endearing to me! 

This is real—the way she’s looking at me. Those big, blue flames burning me up the way they always do.

That ‘darlin,’ a Southern gal’s kryptonite, gets me every time. 

“We were always meant for this, darlin’.”

That Tully charm is twisted around me and I’ll never let it go. I’ll never want to let go of the Bama Boys.


Heat, humor, and heart make up one delicious delight as Helena Hunting weaves her writing magic into Getting Down. Cinderella meets superheroes and one villain or two in a fierce and fire-hot fairytale that leaves you wanting more. You’ll end this taste of a treat needing the next novel by Helena Hunting, Hooking Up, to satisfy the ache that Getting Down leaves.

The chemistry continues to combust between Bancroft ‘Bane’ and Ruby! These two were created for each other. I loved them both so much! 

Serious Bancroft makes me want to get naked. All versions of Bane make me want to get naked, but when he’s all scowly and furrowed brow it makes my lady parts want attention.

Ruby channeled her inner Violet and I was in HUMOR HEAVEN! 

“Naughty girl.” He drags a knuckle along my slit. “You’re ready for my cock right now, aren’t you.”


Holy hot! Bane’s deliciously dirty words turned me into wanton woman.

Throw Ruby’s bestie, Amie, along with Bancroft’s cousin, Armstrong, and his brother, Lexington, into the mix and things quickly get interesting and oh-so-more intoxicating! Getting Down bleeds angst along with humor and heart!

I turn away from Lexington so I don’t succumb to the urge to look at his abs again.

A taste of Bane’s brother, Lex, left me wanting a bigger bite. I also can’t wait for Amie’s story as that bit of fire she showed in Getting Down made me want to see more of Amie’s flames.

I LOVED getting down with GETTING DOWN, which lit me up in laughter, blazed my body, and shot sparks to my heart and soul!!! Packed with humor, heat, and heart, Getting Down is a rom-com that delivers it all!

Eye Candy is full of tricks and this perfect treat SATISFIES EVERYWHERE! This anthology is a compilation of character favorites, beloved heroes and heroines who feel like family. Eye Candy is the sweetest reunion; it feels like coming home. Like the finest chocolate, Eye Candy is an ADDICTION where you’ll ache for MORE!


💋💋💋💋💋 sweet, smoldering, and satisfying kisses

Review – One Night by Aleatha Romig


One Night by Aleatha Romig

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

When you finish a romance, one you CONSUMED in one night, and are still GLOWING and GIDDY like a school girl with her first crush, you know it’s a super star of a story. ONE NIGHT by Aleatha Romig delivers a dual dose of HEAT and HEART, a HEADY HIT felt everywhere!!!

One night was all it took for me to devour Aleatha Romig’s latest sensation. One night and I SMOLDERED. One night and I SWOONED. One night was all it took for One Night to OWN EVERY OUNCE OF ME. One night and I was a GONER for this head-in-the clouds love story. One Night and it felt like coming home, the most delicious deja vous, as I already met the shortened version of this story under Aleatha Romig’s former alter ego or the dynamic duo known as Jade Sinner.

Beautiful and caring Amanda Wells was struck by a tragedy that forever altered her world. She has no time for dating with a busy life dedicated to her family and work. I felt her pain and struggle, a blow no one should bear.

One encounter one night with a stranger, a gorgeous god, Malcolm, changes Amanda’s night…her world…everything. 

“You said you want one night. One night doesn’t end with a kiss. It begins with one.”

Malcolm and Amanda are magical together and I loved them! This hero and heroine’s pull is instant, their chemistry combustible, their meeting perhaps inevitable. It FELT like FATE, as if this romance was meant to be and MEANT FOR ME.

It’s one of my favorite views, watching her come.

HOLY HOTNESS!!! Malcolm and his delicious mouth are SMOKIN’ HOT! One Night is SULTRY, a story that BLAZES with heat and BURNS with desire. Oh did I burn too!

“What do you want?”

“Oh, beautiful. I want you.”

I’m DONE! Malcolm’s beautiful and bold words made me MELT me into a pool of gushy feels. I felt ALL OF THE SWOON! This hot and huge-hearted hero POSSESSED ME! Oh was I Malcolm’s!

One Night by Aleatha Romig is a sexy, swoon-filled, butterfly-fluttering, full-of-feels love story….but SO MUCH MORE!!! One Night is FATE FUSED WITH FEELS. One Night is a tale of destiny, so dreamy that you’ll float to Cloud Nine. One Night delivers two meaningful messages, mantras that we all should follow: Live life to its fullest; don’t let it pass you by. If life knocks you down, dust yourself off, get back up, and try again…rise again.

As I continue to bask in the afterglow of sweetness, still warm from the heat, I can’t help but SMILE from this special story that I got to feel again. One Night BURNED MY BODY and STORMED MY SOUL, hitting my heart where my emotions were engulfed in this romance, pulling at every part of me. My soul sank into this story along with my heart. I was BEGUILED with this book that quickly became BOOK BLISS! I was wholeheartedly hooked! Hook. Line. Sinker. One night was all it took for this tantalizing and tender tale to become one AMAZING ADDICTION!

A sweet, fun, and sexy stand-alone romance from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

One night to remember

Is that too much to desire?

One night for fun, passion, and a chance to remember what it’s like to be a woman.
I’m not looking for love.
There’s a man in my life who loves me with all his heart. He has beautiful blue eyes, is three feet tall, and calls me mommy.
He’s my whole world and I’m his. Fate stole his daddy way too soon.
What would happen if I allowed fate another chance, just for one night?

One night to help a friend

Why did I agree to this?
Blind dates are disasters. If I weren’t helping the friend of a friend, I wouldn’t go.
I’m not looking for romance, love, or even a one-night stand.
After all, the man my friend knew is gone. I’m no longer the hockey star known for his “pep” on the ice and in the sack. I have a new life, and a new career—a new passion. I’m not looking for more.
When the blind date is a bust, could fate change everything?

One night doesn’t end with a kiss—it begins with one.

Be ready to laugh, cry, and fall head over heels as you meet Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha in this new sweet and sexy stand-alone romance, ONE NIGHT.



When we finally pull apart, before I can speak or even contemplate what happened, Malcolm’s blue eyes shine down on me, taking me in and reading me.

His voice rumbles through the background commotion of the bar. “You taste like sweet wine and smell like perfume and desire.”

Warmth fills my cheeks. “You taste like good beer.”

“Good? You’re a beer connoisseur?”

I shrug. “Mostly, I know cheap beer.”

He lifts my chin, bringing his indigo eyes into focus. The room disappears, making those blue orbs all I can see.

“I’m a connoisseur,” he says as his thumb gently rubs over my bruised lips. “And you, beautiful Mandy, if you were a beer, would never be a cheap one. No, you’re a rich custom craft brew. I see it in your eyes, feel it in your touch, and smell it in the air. Kissing a stranger isn’t something you do, is it?”

I try to move my eyes away, but Malcolm’s grip of my chin is unrelenting. Meeting his gaze, I reply, “No. I won’t even bore you with how long it’s been since I’ve kissed a real man.”

His eyes sparkle. “You kiss fake men?”

“Boys. Well, only one actually.”

“You kiss boys…” And then, as if the reality of his statement hits home, he asks, “You have a son?”

My heart flutters, its speed increasing by the second. “I do, but I don’t want to talk about him. Not because he isn’t important for he is—he’s my world—but because tonight isn’t about him. It’s about me.” I can’t gauge Malcolm’s reaction. I can only guess that he’s assuming that I’m some needy woman trying to get a man to take on the responsibility of a kid who isn’t his.

I reach out and splay my fingers over his chest. His heart is beating to match mine. “I don’t want to talk about him,” I continue, “because he’ll never know about you—I’ll never tell him and never introduce you. Don’t worry. I’m not after a man to rescue me. I’m perfectly content with my life as a mother. I just wanted to remember what it felt like to be a woman…for just one night.”

“I’m not anti-children—”

I shake my head. “Stop. That doesn’t matter.” It’s then that I notice the filled glasses on the table and laugh. “When did the waitress come?”

Malcolm bows his head until our noses touch. He inhales deeply, his eyes closing as his hand falls to my lap. “I’d say just after you.”

More heat floods my cheeks. “I-I didn’t…”

“Then we need to do something about that.” He looks again at the full glasses. “I think the drinks came while my tongue was busy getting to know your sweet mouth.” His hand splays over my thigh.

My breathing hitches. “Malcolm?”

“You said you want one night. One night doesn’t end with a kiss. It begins with one.”

Review – Drumline by Stacy Kestwick

Drumline Cover

Drumline by Stacy Kestwick

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

If there is one constant in reading for me it’s the potent and pleasurable high, the giddy delight I get when meeting a new or new-to-me author’s words. That rush during that initial read is off-the-charts incredible! I just popped my Stacy Kestwick book cherry with Drumline that was more of an explosion because HOLY HOT and HEADY READ!!!

I rarely rate a new-to-me-author the highest for my blog—six stars—but HOLY WOW!!! Drumline was THAT GOOD! From the very first page, Drumline was my DRUG and I could not inhale this tale fast enough. Amusing. Arousing. Angst-filled. Addicting. Awe-inspiring. I was so CAPTIVATED and CONSUMED that I devoured—more like demolished—this romance in one night!!! After just a few pages, I six-starred this spellbinding story. One new-to-me-author … one book … one night … one sitting … and my world was ROCKED!!! Where has Stacy Kestwick been all of my book-loving life?!?

Oh where do I start with the hero and heroine who both stole my heart from the start?!? I adored and admired this cast of strong and captivating characters who felt real, characters Stacy Kestwick flawlessly brought to life. The hero and heroine are absolute PERFECTION together!

Laird. First let’s take a moment of silence in appreciation of that SUPER SEXY, Viking-God-like name: LAIRD. JUST hot…SO HOT!!! Green eyes, tall, cut, stubble, AND ink?!? SOLD to the blonde with matching green eyes licking her lips! (That’s me.) Laird had me at green eyes, the color of my own that I happen to love! This captain of the college Drumline team is not only melt-worthy in looks but his flirty and dirty-talking demeanor seals the deal! Just toss my ovaries in Laird’s lap now please!

Stacy Kestwick has written the perfect hero in Laird: a tall, inked, muscular, sweet, sexy, swoony, and dirty-talking alpha who is hot with a huge heart. PURE PERFECTION. Just YES!!!

One lucky gal has Laird saluting everywhere in attention: Reese. Beautiful, tall, and new recruit to Laird’s Drumline team, Reese, is totally off-limits. 

I’d already beaten thirteen guys at a game they didn’t think I could play.

Bold and badass to the bone, I was in awe of this tough heroine. Reese is winning at life!!! 

“Give me the words, Reese. Tell me off the field, I can have you. That you’re mine.”

“I can’t.”

“Can’t? Or won’t?”

The electricity that surges through Laird and Reese was INSTANTANEOUS, an intense attraction at first sight. Their chemistry is COMBUSTIBLE, an inferno waiting to ignite. The sexual tension is PALPABLE. Like a teacher to a student, they are off limits. 

“When I touch you — and make no mistake, it’s a when, not an if — you’re going to remember every fucking second of it. And it’ll be because you want it as badly as I do.”

Holy HOTNESS! Laird’s deliciously dirty mouth was a shot of sexy straight to my core. This ALL ALPHA OWNED EVERY OUNCE OF ME!!!

His mouth needed to come with a warning label. Danger. Highly flammable. But it was too late. I’d had a taste and I liked the burn.

Oh did Laird make me BURN everywhere! I was on fire, blazing at the heat that poured from this hot hero’s mouth. 

“I could eat you all day, every day and never get tired of your taste.”

HOLY HOT AGAIN! My e-reader was on FIRE and so was I!!! I could not take anymore of Laird’s panty-melting mouth! My involuntary thigh clenches were out of control. This sexy and swoony hero, Laird, RUINED ME!!!

“Tell me you don’t want this.”

Hot breath fanned over my cheek.

“Tell me your heart isn’t racing as fast as mine.”

“Tell me to stop,” he dared me.

Drumline Teaser 5

Don’t stop! Oh wait…I’m not the heroine here but I wanted to be! I wanted to climb into the story and climb on…well…I better stop. Let’s just say: If Laird were real, he would have so been my hall pass. 

At least if we’d crashed and burned, I’d have given it my all, no regrets.

I did not expect this college romance to WOW ME SO MUCH! Drumline is as SEXY as it is SIGNIFICANT. This romance is full of smolder, but the tender and tearful moments touched my heart the most. My heart shattered and soared, pounding through my chest like the beat of the Drumline. In a love story that is the sweetest of SURPRISES, Drumline simply BLEW ME AWAY!!!

Stacy Kestwick is my new author hero!!! She’s a super star writer who possesses the power to write the perfect humor-heat-heart trio. This author’s storytelling skills are SUPERB! Drumline‘s writing is perfection, a story I sank into like a warm bath … INTENSE, INVITING and INTOXICATING. With its laugh-out-loud humor, off-the-charts chemistry, passion, smolder, strength, sorrow, sweetness, swoon, soul, and sooo much heart…Drumline has everything you’d want in a romance…EVERYTHING!!!

Drumline is FIRE fused with FEELS!!! I did not expect this story to twist and turn itself around me where I FELT ALL THE FEELS. I did not expect to CRY sad tears along with my happy ones. I did not expect to feel so much. I FELT this love story stream through me, sweeping me away. I FELT the passion mixed with promise for this heart-worthy hero and heroine. I FELT every emotion: heartbreak, happiness, humor, and hope. I FELT IT ALL … EVERYTHING!!!

Heart-stopping sexy, pulse-pounding, and passionately poignant, Drumline is a romance that stays with you … simply UNFORGETTABLE and UNPUTDOWNABLE. I LOVED EVERYTHING about DRUMLINE!!! Fresh … fierce … and ALL THE FEELS! Drumline is all that and MORE!!! I need an encore now! ❤️

“You’ll never feel anything but right in my arms.”

Traditions are important. Especially in the South.
College football. Rivalries. Tailgating. Halftime shows.
Some things just don’t change.
Until Reese Holland shows up with her long legs and no-bull***t attitude to audition for the prestigious all-male Rodner University snare line.
It doesn’t matter how much hazing she has to endure from Laird Bronson, with his narrowed green eyes and arrogant smirk. She wants that damn spot, and she’s more than good enough to earn it.
She expects there to be tension. Even friction.
But not sparks hot enough to burn the entire campus down.


The door opened. Laird’s scent reached me first, soap and bad ideas and fairy tales all mixed up in a pheromone cloud I was powerless to resist.

“I shouldn’t be here.” My voice sounded weak and a bit defensive as I looked at his neck, his chin, his nose—anywhere but his kryptonite green eyes.

“Wrong. This is exactly where you should be.”

His hand closed around my wrist and he pulled me out of the endless Alabama heat into the coolness of his townhouse, then crowded me against the wall. Before I could protest, before I could even take a breath, his mouth was on mine, desperate, hungry, and so damn hot. Rational thought fled my mind. My knees buckled and I clutched his shirt, letting his arm around my back support my weight.

“Right here. With me. In my arms.” The husky words hit me like bullets.

His tongue licked the seam of my lips, then plunged inside. A greedy noise spilled from my throat. I’d never get enough of the way he tasted, of the way my skin seemed to hum whenever he touched me. His other arm fell to my thigh, tugging my leg up to wrap around his waist as he arched my back. That dirty mouth of his wasn’t the only thing pressing against me.

I raised my arms to his wide shoulders, feeling his muscles bunch under my palms. My nails scratched along his scalp, and his answering groan had me shivering in wanton desire.

There was no spark, no slow build-up. This was an instant inferno of need.

“Laird.” I rubbed my cheek against his stubble, then tipped my head to the side as he trailed kisses down my neck. “We shouldn’t.”  It was my last attempt at logic, at sane reasoning.

“Says who?” His eyes bored into mine, snaring me in their frustrated heat. “You? You want this. I can feel how much you want it. Your nipples are already hard and begging, your mouth is swollen and pouting, and there’s no doubt in my mind, if I reached between those sweet thighs of yours right now, that you’d be wet and ready.”

He rocked his hips, his hard length obvious behind his zipper. “That’s just the start of what you do to me, Reese.”

Laird traced his fingers along my face, rubbing at the crease between my eyebrows with his thumb. “Tell me you don’t want to be here.”

Before I could open my mouth, he stopped me with a grunt and a sharp shake of his head. “No. Not whether you think you should be here, tell me you don’t want to be here. That you don’t want me to cook you dinner, and tell you how damn beautiful you look, and kiss you until you’ve been kissed every single way there is to kiss.”

Review – Temporary by Alexx Andria

Temporary cover

Review graphic

This is the delicious fun that I have come to know from Alexx Andria! A dark hero and the fiesty girl… steamy sexy chemistry. Don’t forget the wicked push and pull between said dark hero and his fiesty girl. Throw in a Buchanan or two that we have had the pleasure of meeting in Alexx’s previous series, and you have Temporary. Don’t think that you’re going to be able to read a little of this and walk away for a few hours. Oh no! This book kept pulling me back every time that I tried to walk away. The story is so well written and just so much fun to read that I didn’t want to stop until I was done. I even found myself highlighting passages and sending them to my blog mates just so they could read the hot steamy, jaw dropping scenes right along with me!

Mari Jones is down on her luck. She’s working in a dive bar in NYC, trying to make rent because her dead beat ex-boyfriend has stolen all of her money. She’s a small town girl from California trying to make her dreams come true. She never expected this and doesn’t want to return home to hear “I told you so” from her family. All that changes when Gage Donnelly appears in Jimmy’s and offers her a drink and a proposal that will change her life. One night. No feelings. Just sex.

It’s never that easy. Gage has a past filled with painful secrets and guilt that he can’t shake. He can’t have love. He’s not worthy of it. He can’t have Mari for longer than a short time. But can he really only something superficial with this woman that he has admired from a far? Can Mari forget what she feels when she’s with Gage? The sense of belonging, the bright burning passion, the push he gives her to be more?

Oh, you Buchanan Brothers! How I have missed all of you…

Don’t miss this fantastic read! I so enjoyed this angsty, sensual read. It’s as heartbreaking as it is heartwarming, an absolutely sinful way to spend an evening! Fantastic!

Temporary teaser 1


It’s only temporary, baby. Don’t go catching feelings because I will tear you apart.

Mari Jones is an itch under my skin that I can’t satisfy. The sassy, long-legged cocktail waitress is everything I shouldn’t want. Smart-mouthed, take-no-shit, sexy-as-hell, and the worst thing I could throw into my life but I want her.
The thing is…I’ve always wanted her.
She doesn’t remember me but I’ve never forgotten her.
And now I’m going to put her into my bed.
Don’t get me wrong — I’m not about forever — I see what I want and I find a way to get it but it’s always a temporary fix.
No amount of money in the world can fix what’s broken inside me — and I should know, I’m fucking loaded — so don’t even try.
I’m damaged. Broken to the core.
If she catches feelings, I’m going to ruin her.
Even though I know I should walk, I can’t.
She’s everything I ever wanted…everything I will never deserve to have.
Right or wrong…she’s mine.

Publisher’s Note: This is a full-length novel at 40,000 words. It’s everything you’ve come to expect in an Alexx Andria read — hot sex, witty banter, and dark angst — if that sounds like your thing, feel free to one-click this bad boy billionaire and settle in for a deliciously wicked and entertaining time. Oh, and fans of Alexx’s Buchanan series…you might just recognize a character or two. Enjoy!

Temporary teaser 2


“I want you, Mari,” Gage stated, leaning back, kicking his leg out casually beneath the scratched and ruined table. “Name your price.”

“N-name my price?” I stuttered, incredulous. “What does that mean? And what makes you think I even have a price that I would offer? I’m not a vendor at a flea market, ready to haggle over an item…especially when that item is me.”

His smirk did crazy things to my belly even as his answer pissed me off fresh. “Everyone has a price. Even you. I’m willing to bet your price is a lot lower than you think it would be.”

Oh, hell no, what? “Did you just insult me?”

“Not at all. Just sharing a bit of what I know about human nature.”

“Well, you don’t know shit about me,” I said, rising. “I’m done with this ridiculous game. I don’t care how rich you are, you can’t buy me.”

Screw Manny and his greed. He could find someone else to pander to the rich jerk, I was out.

“You’re broke. You’ll be homeless by the end of the month because you can’t pay your rent and something tells me you aren’t going to make enough in tips to get what you need by month’s end.”

His calm voice at my back froze my feet. I turned slowly. “How the hell do you know my personal business?”

He waved away my question as if I were naive. “Nothing is private, sweetheart. I can get everything I need to know about you with the push of a button. Financial records are the easiest.” He paused only to punctuate his point. “Is my intel wrong? Do you have a secret stash of cash in your mattress that you’re holding onto for a rainy day?”

No, he wasn’t wrong — Gage knew how precarious my situation was.

Review – Most Valuable Playboy by Lauren Blakely

Most Valuable Playboy by Lauren Blakely

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love found me when I became one with The Most Valuable Playboy by Lauren Blakely, a deliciously dreamy love story that soared straight to my soul.

Maybe it’s because I LOVE FOOTBALL and watch it obsessively.

Maybe it’s because I LOVE SPORTS ROMANCES, my favorite romance genre next to rocker reads.

Maybe because childhood friends-to-lovers romances are my weakness…my kryptonite.

Maybe it’s because I need to lose myself completely in stories, feeling every word.

No…not maybe at all…but YES!!! YES to all of these and more! Lauren Blakely wrote SO MUCH MORE than a sports meets friends-to-lovers romance!!!The Most Valuable Playboy is a love story of HAPPY FEELS and FATE, a romance of DREAMS and DESTINY. This book is BLISS, and it wholeheartedly CAPTIVATED ME, calling to my heart and soul, CONSUMING ME from beginning to end. Football + fake relationship + childhood friends-to-lovers romance = one trifecta of a TOUCHDOWN!

My first thought while reading The Most Valuable Playboy: This is really a guy writing this book as the perspective is on point. Lauren Blakely SLAYS the MALE POINT-OF-VIEW (POV) like a boss, nailing it like a playboy quarterback to the cheerleading squad. I didn’t even miss the female POV as Lauren Blakely wove enough dialogue into the story to bring depth to both the hero and heroine.

Cooper is an up-and-coming NFL quarterback, a player on and off the field. Gorgeous with sun-kissed brown hair and bright brown eyes, tall, chiseled, and cut…beautiful inside and out. Hot Cooper is also a dirty talker who delivers the big Os with ease. I LOVED this hero!!!!

Beautiful dark-haired and dark-eyed Violet is Cooper’s childhood friend. Sassy, sexy, strong and smart, Violet is gal who could so be my bestie. I ADORED this heroine!

Friends…staying the friend zone is easy until they have to fake a relationship to help Cooper’s career. Then the game gets tough as lines are blurred…

“What are we doing?” she asks.

I bring my face nearer, my forehead touching hers.


Then we kiss, and it’s the first kiss that belongs to us.

That kiss, so sweet and delicate, was EVERYTHING!!! I could not help but smile, as this kiss lifted me up to the clouds, swooning all the way. The chemistry between Cooper and Violet is a play they can’t fake.

She’s doing a everything to me—hitting me everywhere—mind, body, and straight in the heart with an arrow I’m not even sure she knows she’s aiming in that direction.

Is there anything sweeter than a friends-to-lovers romance?!? The Most Valuable Playboy is SWEETNESS MEETS SMOLDER, a friends-to-lovers romance oozing with passion and promise.The Most Valuable Playboy and its hero quarterback with a huge heart held my heart the whole time reading. I don’t think I could love Cooper any more as this PERFECT Prince Charming POSSESSED ME!!! Cooper and Violet together were MAGICAL!

Lauren Blakey has woven her magic wand of rom-com again, sucking readers into a vortex of involuntary thigh-clenches, swoon-filled sighs, and school-girl giggles. The Most Valuable Playboy is a SWEET SIGH of a sports romance that burns with desire and drips with honey where you’ll fall in love before the first quarter is over. Oh did I FALL HARD! I was INSPIRED as I felt the Vince vibe, the motivation of NFL coaching legend, Vince Lombardi. I found myself with tears in my eyes—not the sad kind but the feel-good, gushy kind. I found myself in love. Fire-hot, flirty, funny, enchanting, and endearing…this tale is one tender-loving TOUCHDOWN!!! I LOVED THIS MVP!

“”Do you feel it?”

She has to feel it, too. She has to know. She has to get it.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 all-star touchdowns

View all my reviews

Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.

Don’t let the fact that I’m the leading pick in the Most Valuable Playboy charity auction fool you. These days, I’m only a player on the field. I’ve kept my pants zipped all season long — and it has been long — because nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the team owner’s recently-widowed and handsy-as-hell sister who’s dead set on winning more than a date with me.

Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.

She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me we have to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract. 

Violet takes one for the team and pretends to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport, and I want it to go into overtime. The problem is — I’ve been riding the bench for years. 

How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?

Always a bridesmaid.

No Action Armstrong.

Ball Cap Boy.

Mr. Clean.

The Unused Insurance Plan.

Oh wait. Here’s one more, a personal fave.

Best Butt in the NFL.

Those are just some of the nicknames I’ve been given in the last few years. They don’t bug me. Not one bit. They’ve all been true, especially that last one. You should see my ass. You can bounce a quarter off my cheeks.

Here’s the thing—when you spend the first three years of your career warming the bench for the best player in the league, you can’t get a chip on your shoulder. You have to stay sharp and be ready for that moment when you swap out a ball cap for a helmet and get your pants dirty.

My time has finally come this season, and so far, we’re winning.

But tonight isn’t about what happens between the opening kickoff and the end of the fourth quarter.

Tonight is about the one game I’ve always dominated.

For the last few years, I’ve been the highest ticket item in the players’ annual charity auction, and I can’t help enjoying that. Because the guy I’ve backed up has been called a lot of things—a legend, the greatest ever, a titan of the game—but the one I most enjoy is “second-best-looking quarterback on the Renegades.”

Hey, I didn’t give him that name. The media did, deciding the dude who play second-string—me—had a prettier face. Before this season, I’d seen a grand total of 120 minutes of playing time in my first three years, but I’ve taken home the top honors in the charity auction, where some of the loveliest ladies come to bid on the players they want to take out for a night on the town.

Ah, the memories of those dates have warmed my heart, and other parts, on the sidelines when the games were dull. Evenings in limos, testing the strength of the leather backseat, nights in hotels that lasted way past dawn, mutually and blissfully ignoring the no physical contact between the winner and the player rule.

Yeah, I’ve enjoyed the fuck out of being paraded on stage in front of hundreds of women, their slender arms lifted in the air, raising their bids higher on me than all the other guys. It’s been my one chance to shine, even to stand out.

Those days are behind me, though, now that I’m finally leading the team down the field every single Sunday. I still expect to rake in top dollar for the charity I gladly support, but this time, I won’t be living it up and letting loose after hours. I have a reputation to protect, and a season on the line.

The trouble is, the woman who has her eyes on me at the Most Valuable Playboy charity auction wants my full enchilada, and it’s not on the menu anymore.

Guess that means it’s time to call an audible on the line of scrimmage.
