Review – He Loves Me Knot by RC Boldt 



6 out of 5 stars 

 6 STARS
Pardon me while I enjoy one of the best book hangovers I’ve ever had! I’ve been a fan of RC since the first book I’ve reviewed for her. I’ve loved every book immensely,  but this book…. It’s on a whole nother level. I wanted to lay down and go to sleep because the migraine I had prior to starting kept getting worse from the brightness of the kindle. There was just one problem. I COULDN’T PART WITH THIS STORY!!!  There wasn’t a chance in hell that I was going to put this book down. I was in a trance from the very beginning and there was just no stopping. 
Second chance romances are my favorite trope ever. I have to say that RC completely perfected this one. It was balanced with that humor I’ve come to love from her but it wasn’t the main focus of this story. This story was nothing but a long emotional journey of two souls who didn’t get it right the first time,  but fate would see to it that they were brought together to mend each other’s hearts. 
I absolutely fell in love with Beckett too and am so glad that he will be getting a book. I know that I am going to get to see that big,  goofy,  lovable man get his HEA. And also know we will get to see more of Knox and Emma Jane. This has to be added to your TBR. It was definitely a top read this year. This book will have a space in my heart forever.



 Sometimes love needs a second chance…


I never looked back after skipping out on my own wedding, even if it did leave me estranged from most of my family. Eight years later, I have the life I’ve always wanted. As an advertising account executive, my world is damn near perfect.

Until I come face-to-face with my past. With the man I once loved. The man who holds my future in his hands. The man who’s hell-bent on getting even with me for leaving him at the altar.

Even with all the unfinished business between us, I still love Knox Montgomery. The only problem?

He loves me…KNOT.

Review – Rock Solid by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde

CPEWRockSolidCover5x8_BW_MEDIUM

Review graphic

Wow, the amazing duo of Phillips and Wilde has written another brilliant series that makes me beg for just one more story. Just one more, ladies! But if the Book Boyfriends have to end, what better way to go out than with the delicious Connor Prescott!

No one ever wants to be stuck in an airport due to inclement weather. Especially on a holiday. So when Connor finds himself stranded in the Denver airport he decides to make the best of his situation. He never expected to be spending his night with a beautiful stranger who he feels an instant connection to. The beautiful girl with the sad eyes and a sorry excuse of an ex-boyfriend. His loss was certainly  Connor’s gain,  at least for Valentine’s Night. Katie Kaswell never expected a surprise trip to Denver would leave her not only brokenhearted but stranded at the airport. But a seriously sexy stranger may just be the cure for the blues. One night of sensual surrender — no last names and no strings attached. But much like Connor, Katie feels a connection so immediate and so strong that it scares her. The morning sun finds Connor alone and Katie running as far and as fast as she can from the beautiful stranger.

Fast forward three years and who would have guessed one night of nameless passion could change two people’s lives forever when one very special little girl named Valentine makes her way into Connor’s life?

This second chance romance with a side of the best surprise ever was a fun, heartwarming read. Of all the Book Boyfriends, Connor was the one that I was most eager to read about and know his story. He’s protective and a bit of a unicorn – he’s a one woman man. For three years he’s held onto one perfect evening. Nothing could quite hold a candle to one Valentine’s Night in Denver. Katie has had her fair share of heartbreaks, insecurities and loneliness. In her life she has had only two things that mean everything – her daughter and Connor. Their love story was rocky but worth the pain and gives you the hope that insta-love can happen and that a once in a lifetime chance can end so beautifully.

Another GREAT series! Bravo, Carly and Erika!

synopsis.jpg

Connor Prescott doesn’t do one night stands (yes, ladies, he’s an anomaly) so when he meets a beautiful woman during a snowed in night at the airport who wants to forget her heartache, he makes an exception. Their night together is incendiary, and by morning Connor wants more . . . except his sexy stranger is gone. He’s pretty sure he’ll never see her again, until three and a half years later she finds him, and changes his entire world with three little words . . . You’re a daddy.

Review – Perfect Match by Lila Monroe

Cover

Perfect Match by Lila Monroe

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lila Monroe has created the perfect light, laugh-out-loud, and oh-so-lovable romance again! Sex in the City meets Match.com in Perfect Match, a fresh and flirty romantic comedy that is as sweet as it is sexy. This is a guaranteed smile-on-the face story!

The hot and heartbreaking hero, Jack, is one you’ll both love but loathe at times. Hot, arrogant, shrewd, compassionate, and caring, kind, and temperamental, this is one billionaire Brit you still have to LOVE!!! Who doesn’t appreciate a hot bloke with a British accent?!?

Jack was fine with playing the field until a beautiful matchmaker encroached his territory. 

He’s got a Sexy British accent— -of course he does. Why shouldn’t he hit every “panty-melting” criterion there is?

Beautiful McKenna is out to prove she has what it takes to elevate her revolutionary matchmaking app, one that could knock the dating world off its axis. I adored and admired this heroine as McKenna is tough and tenacious.

When Jack and McKemna end up partnering together, sparks fly. Their intense connection is PALPABLE, their banter both playful and passionate. Together, they were MAGNETIC!!! 

“It’s that moment when you look at a person, and they look back at you, and you know they’re in that moment with you.”

This SLOW BURN of a story had me ON EDGE, awaiting a love connection with angst and anticipation. The push and pull was HEADY, a force that made my head spin. The sexual tension lit me on fire. I wanted to shove this heroine and hero together so many times! 

Desire. He feels it too, right there in the air between us.

When a hero is about to bolt but does a one-eighty, changing his mind, and takes that risk, kissing her in a kiss with the power of a thousand winds, that is HERO GOLD!!! Freaking kryptonite!!!

“F**k it.” Before I can even react, he closes the distance between us and kisses me, hard.

That kiss POSSESSED ME, blazing and burning, lighting me on fire. I felt the passion and promise permeate the pages. 

“I can’t wait to hear you come for me.”

Holy hot!!! You can’t help but think this hot Brit’s blazing and breathless-inducing words are for you. That mouth on Jack…just YES!!! 

“Let go. I’ve got you.”

Perfect Match is fun, flirty, fire-hot, and a feel-good romance guaranteed to make the heart dance.This story is so well-written—witty writing infused with humor and heart in all the write places—with a natural feel that sucks you in and keeps you wanting more. Perfect Match is a match made in heaven.

I have sixty days to make this maverick billionaire fall in love… with somebody else!

Jack Callahan has the hottest smile in tech. And as for his ass…ets – well, there’s a reason he’s the biggest playboy in town. But thanks to douche-bro investors and my snake of a college nemesis (don’t ask), he’s also my last shot to take my new dating app from kick-ass idea to world-conquering, million-dollar reality.

There’s just one problem: he doesn’t believe you can make a program for love.

With my future on the line, I set him a challenge: if I can use the app to find his soulmate, he’ll invest in my company. Simple, right?

Wrong.

It turns out, Jack’s cocky attitude pushes my buttons – in all the sexiest, most infuriating ways. My research tells me he’s the absolute worst guy in the world for me… so why can’t I keep my hands off him?

And with my deadline approaching fast, how will I choose between my big break – or a broken heart?

Review – The Bed Mate by Kendall Ryan

1001 Dark Nights cover The Bed Mate

The Bed Mate by Kendall Ryan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sometimes the best things come in small packages. Sometimes what lacks in length may be full of depth. Sometimes a little story delivers a lot. Kendall Ryan’s latest sensation is a short story, The Bed Mate, but oh did this little tale DELIVER BIG-TIME! The Bed Mate is a FEEL-GOOD friends-to-lovers romance that makes the heart dance all the way to Cloud Nine!!!

Hands down, when I began The Bed Mate, it was INSTANT LOVE!!! The witty writing, believable plot, compelling and charming characters, and overall fairytale feel of this romance were EVERYTHING!!! I was BEGUILED!!! The Bed Mate latched onto my heart and never let go.

Gorgeous Sam and beautiful Maggie are best friends, always there for one another. Anywhere. Anytime. Any place. Until one weekend. Until one weekend crosses the friendship line and the friend zone is an open field of pent-up passion and possibilities.

Okay, so yeah, he was sexy. That was a no brainer.

A handsome man with a good muscular build putting his shirt on

GAH!!! Hot. Sexy. Sweet. Caring. Protective. Sam is the ULTIMATE PRINCE CHARMING!!!

Perhaps when the stars align and Sam and Maggie find themselves suddenly single, these friends were meant to be more.

We just fit together. We always had. Like we were fated to be.

Picture2

The Bed Mate is a friends-to-lovers fairytale fused by fate with FIRE and FEELS!!! This hero and heroine are magical together! I was ENRAPTURED with this love story. SO UTTERLY DREAMY!!!

Don’t judge this book by its steamy title as The Bed Mate is so SWEET and SWOONY! The off-the-charts chemistry, the pent-up passion, the promise of more, the love that was buried but brought to life, the sweetness, the swoon, and heart and soul make The Bed Mate the PERFECT ROMANCE. ROMANCE BLISS!!! Just YES!!! Kendall Ryan has written her most ROMANTIC ROMANCE yet!!! ALL THE SWEET SIGHS!!! ALL THE SWEET STARS!!! 

”What do you want, Maggie?”

“You, Sam. Always you.”

💋💋💋💋💋 feel-good kisses

synopsis.jpg

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a new story in her Room Mate series… 

I might be a typical guy, but these last few years, my love life’s been anything but. From crazy ex-girlfriends to one night stands who are stage-five clingers, my relationships go bad faster than the milk in your fridge. The only constant has been my best friend Maggie.

Fresh off a bad breakup of her own, I invite Maggie to my guy’s skiing weekend knowing she needs an escape from reality. But then something funny starts to happen. I start noticing things about her that I never noticed before. 

She’s beautiful and doesn’t know it, she’s funny without even trying, and now she’s suddenly single for the first time in forever. 

Sharing a hotel room with her proves to be the tipping point in our very platonic friendship. Suddenly I want to put my hands, my mouth, and my … other parts … all over her gorgeous body. I want to claim her, make sure no man touches her ever again. But then her groveling ex shows up, and Maggie’s torn. 

Am I ready to screw up the best relationship I’ve ever had for a shot at something more?

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

FB_IMG_1494244623114

I said a silent prayer of thanks to Ben, Jerry, and Jose Cuervo as I blearily made my way to Sam’s bedroom. He hadn’t bothered to make his bed before he left this morning, but I didn’t mind.

Instead, I snuggled into the space where I knew he slept, breathing in deep so I could smell his shampoo on the pillow, and closed my eyes. Sam would never do what Trevor had done to me.

Never.

I drifted off to sleep for what felt like roughly three seconds before I woke up to find my thigh vibrating and the late morning sun streaming through the window.

“What the…” I sat up, rubbing my eye with one hand as I grappled down into the sheets where my cell phone rested. I found ten missed calls—seven from Trevor, three from Sam.

Sliding my thumb over Sam’s name, I called him back and pressed the phone to my ear.

“Hello?” I asked, my voice cracked and groggy.

“It’s eleven there,” he said.

“Yeah, yep. I knew that,” I said, trying to make my voice sound less like it had just gone through a wood chipper.

“So why are you still asleep?” he asked.

“I’m not allowed to sleep in?” I asked lightly, the pounding in my head making me a little nauseous with its intensity.

“No. You never do. What’s going on?”

He sounded suspicious and for a moment I fought with myself over whether to tell him the truth. One way or another, he was going to get it out of me; he knew me too well for me to lie to him for long.

“Look, could I stay at your place while you’re away?” I asked.

“What? Why? Did something happen to your apartment?” he demanded, the worry clear in his voice.

“No, nothing like that. I just… I need a break for a couple of days.”

“That’s not cryptic or anything,” Sam scoffed.

I sucked in my cheeks. Okay, here we go. Like a Band-Aid.

“I need to be someplace where Trevor can’t find me.”

Review – Crank by Adriana Locke

Crank Ebook Cover

Review graphic

Oh, Adriana Locke has done it again! How she makes us fall head over boots for these incredible families the world may never know. If Crank and Walker Gibson are any indication The Gibson Boys are very seriously going to give that family from Savannah — I think they are the Landrys? — a run for their money as a fan favorite. So so sorry Lincoln. Nah, not sorry at all!

Walker is a hard working blue collar guy. He’s a mechanic, a man of his word. He loves his family and takes pride in his business. Still Walker is a broken man doing his best to hide his hurt, anger and pain behind a stoic attitude and a shuttered soul. All that changes when a girl from Savannah decides to use his truck for batting practice. His life will never be the same after Sienna Landry enters the doors of his auto shop, Crank.

Sienna Landry is considered Savannah royalty coming from a politically powerful family. Still she never felt that she fit in with the high achieving Landry clan. A talented designer and risk taker, Sienna packs her bags and heads to Illinois to take a chance on a dream and move out from the shadow of her overprotective family. Never would she have expected that trying to fix a mistake would lead her on the road to a soul deep love, heartbreak, a healthy dose of angst and another amazing family that she could call her own.

Walker and Sienna are poplar opposites. She’s Manolo’s and he’s Timberland’s. She’s five star meals and he’s burgers and beer. She’s spend now and he’s frugal because he has to be. They are perfect for each other. Still their love and relationship is not without struggles, doubts and insecurities. The past was never far behind and it had the potential to destroy something that could be everything. But these two have a chemistry that burned from their first meeting and only got hotter as their story developed. I couldn’t help but to fall in love with the sexy mechanic and his brooding soulful self. Sienna reminded me that just because the girl came from royalty didn’t mean she had to wear the crown. Being a commoner isn’t so bad when the prize is Walker Gibson.

This story had me from the very beginning in much the same way that Written In The Scars did. The Walkers are the real people. They are the family in your own neighborhood. Hard workers. God, family and Sunday dinners at Grandmother’s house. They share their hurts and worries and cheer on the high school football team at state championships. I felt this story in my heart and it reminded me that I am that small town girl trying hard to make the community proud. Crank is a wonderful beginning to another series that I’m going to love and devour from Adriana. This is family with all its beauty and frailties, amazing best friends, and a Nana that makes the best comfort food ever.

Fantastic, Addy!

Crank Teaser 1

synopsis.jpg

This is one mistake Sienna Landry can’t buy her way out of.

As Walker Gibson looks at her, then at the damage to his precious truck (that she may or may not have accidentally inflicted), she knows she’s in trouble. It’s not the busted headlight and dented grill that’s sunk her though. It’s the downright sinful man in front of her that’s the problem.

The small town mechanic is broody. Rough. Smells like engine grease and gasoline and Sienna isn’t sure why that’s so sexy, but it is. It so is. She’s ready to peel off her panties at the drop of his wrench.

He wants her too. She can feel it when he brushes against her. Experience it as he presses her against the wall of the shop. It’s thinly veiled in his deep, brown eyes when he looks at her like she’s everything he’s ever wanted. So why won’t he give in?

The damage to Walker’s truck is the first of many mistakes between the two of them, ending with truths that rock Sienna’s world. Nothing can fix her broken heart except the love of a man that won’t, maybe even can’t, love her back.

Crank is a standalone romance in a new small town, blue-collar series from USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke. Join readers everywhere as they fall in love with the delicious Gibson Boys.

“Have you forgotten already?” he whispers.
“Forgotten what?”
“That I’ve been inside you.”
I grip the wooden rung screwed into the tree as if I’m ready to climb. It’s really so I don’t sag against him. His words fire through my veins and singe my vessels, landing in one contorted mass at the apex of my thighs.
“And we saw what happened after that,” I volley back. 
He bristles beside me. Clean, un-Walker-filled air swallows my personal space and I instantly hate it. My body begs to fall back towards him, to feel the energy that buzzes between us when he’s near, but I don’t dare.
Instead, I put one foot on the bottom rung and look at him over my shoulder. He’s watching me with intense, broody eyes, his bottom lip pinched between his teeth.
“Close your eyes, Gibson. I’d hate for you to see what you’ve been missing.”
With a light head and clattering heart, I work my way up the pseudo-ladder. I don’t look down. I show no fear. And even more importantly, I show no weakness.

Review – Misadventures On The Night Shift by Lauren Rowe 


6 out of 5 stars 

 Lauren Rowe hits yet another home run in a book filled with humor, wit, emotion, and 100% sexy.  This book will draw you in with it’s heat and witty banter but then keep you mesmerized as it gets a lot deeper emotionally.  
I really don’t want to give a detailed review of the plot because it’s an adventure in and of itself. The last half of the book had me on edge and almost in tears (I won’t say good or bad. Sorry not sorry).  My heart was pounding and I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see how it all would end. An absolute must read!


MISADVENTURES ON THE NIGHT SHIFT

Synopsis

Hotel clerk Abby Medford has always enjoyed the quiet solitude of the night shift. The long, boring hours allow her time to study her law books. But when bad-boy-rocker Lucas Ford checks into the penthouse suite one night and demands Abby personally deliver his room service request, her formerly quiet nights are quickly filled with Lucas’s erotic games.

But as Abby soon learns, if she thinks she can indulge her innermost desires with Lucas without giving him her heart, she’s dead wrong.

Review – Jacob’s Ladder: Gabe by Katie Ashley 



5 out of 5 stars

 This was my first Katie Ashley book. Definitely not a typical rock star read,  so I  definitely recommend it if you want something different. Two fiery individuals come together after a battle to the end. 
Gabe is the song writer for his band, Jacobs Ladder. He  is in a major writing funk and has ventured to no man’s land to try to find his mojo. Before he can even start his adventure,  he gets stuck and has to be towed. He NEVER  expects Ray,  the tow truck driver,  to actually be Rae,  a feisty woman who has a serious aversion to musicians. 
After her mom left her for a singer and her musician boyfriend who gets her pregnant at 17 then runs off,  Rae wants absolutely nothing to do with Gabe when she pulls him out of the ditch. He doesn’t stop his pursuit,  and soon the songs start flowing. Now he just has to convince her why she should stay! 



 As the lead songwriter for Jacob’s Ladder, the last thing Gabe Renard needs is a debilitating case of writer’s block. After years of meaningless one night stands, he’s finding it hard to pen the love-filled ballads the label is requesting. In an effort to clear his mind, Gabe takes his jeep off-roading in the North Georgia Mountains. When a wrong-turn leads to him getting stuck more than just creatively, he’s forced to call for help. To his surprise, the “Ray” who has been sent by Hart Wreckers to his aid is actually “Rae”—a sexy-as-hell spitfire in a pair of tight-as-hell jeans. The combination of Rae’s sassy mouth and rocking body might be the inspiration Gabe needs. But for the first time since becoming a rock star, his advances have been shot down.

Reagan Hart has never been a fan of musicians. In fact, just the mention of one might cause her to throw a tire tool. Her disgust for them started when she was just eight and her mother ran off with a traveling country singer, and it only worsened when at seventeen, her rocker boyfriend knocked her up before blowing out of town. As a single mother taking care of her family’s collision business, Rae doesn’t have time for hook ups, much less a relationship. And if she did make time, a musician would be last on her list, even one as good-looking as Gabe Renard.

Can Gabe find the words to prove not only to Rae, but himself, that she’s the only one for him?


 My tirade was interrupted by my phone ringing. It was Eli.

“Hey man, are you alive?” he questioned.

“Yes, I am.”

“Are you just saying that because the Deliverance people who kidnapped you are forcing you to say that? Cough once into the phone if you’re not okay.”

Rolling my eyes, I laughed in spite of myself. “I have not been abducted by any Deliverance people. I am here in Hayesville of my own volition.”

“Yes, it’s your volition that’s questionable. I mean, you said yourself they don’t even have a Starbucks. What could you possibly still be doing there?”

“Actually, I’m here writing.”

Eli sucked in a breath. “Holy shit. You are?”

When I’d called him the day before, I hadn’t told him anything about Rae or songwriting. Since everything had still been up in the air with her, I’d just told him I was just staying in Hayesville to get away. “Yeah, man. I’ve gotten two songs done already.”

“I’m so fucking proud of you.”

“Thanks. I’m not gonna lie, it sure feels good to be putting words on paper. They’re good words, too, and you know I wouldn’t just say that.”

“I sure do. You are your own worst critic. When were you planning on sharing them with me and Abs?”

“Are you still at Jake and Abby’s?”

“No. I came back to Atlanta the day you left.”

“As soon as I get back to the hotel, I’ll Google Hangout with you guys and play what I have.” At the familiar tingle running up my spine, I said, “Strike that. I think I’m feeling something new coming on.”

“Seriously?”

“Yeah. I’m not too surprised considering I was just with—” I abruptly cut myself off. For reasons I didn’t understand, I didn’t feel ready to tell Eli about Rae.

“You were just with who?”

“Nobody. Forget it.”

“Look, if you’ve fallen in love with some hillbilly woman named Earlene, it’s okay. You don’t have to be ashamed.”

I laughed. “Considering I’ve only been gone for forty-eight hours, I’m not quite sure how I could have fallen in love with a hillbilly.”

“You never know—they move fast.”

“How the hell would you know? Past experience?”

“Just an observation.”

“Whatever.” A knock came on the Jeep’s window, causing my phone to fly out of my hand and onto the passenger seat. When I glanced over, Rae was grinning at me. After I rolled down the window, I said, “Hey.”

“Hey. Listen, I was thinking instead of coming over here, you should just come to the shop to pick me and Linc up. Dad lives closer to the shop than here.”

“Okay. I’ll see you at the shop.”

She smiled. “Okay.” Jerking her chin, she added, “Now get the hell out of here so I can go to work.”

“I’m on it.”

After she waved and headed back to her car, I leaned over and picked up my phone. I knew there wasn’t a chance in hell that Eli had hung up. The minute he heard a female voice, he would be hanging on to every word he possibly could. “Hey. I’m back.”

“Was that Earlene?” he asked teasingly as I cranked the Jeep up.

“No, smartass. Her name is Rae.”

“Sounds like you guys are having dinner tonight.”

“We are, at her father’s house,” I replied as I backed out of Rae’s driveway.

“Mmhmm.”

I laughed. “Like that’s all you have to say. I mean, don’t hurt yourself holding back.”

“It’s just that you said it would be impossible to have fallen in love with a hillbilly girl in two days, yet here you are having dinner with a woman. Not only that, you’re having dinner with her family. Do we need Selma to prepare a press release on your impending nuptials?”

“Har fucking har.”

“Hey, you told me not to hold back. I mean, you’re already eating dinner with her parents—what am I supposed to think?”

“It’s not like that with Rae.”

“Then enlighten me.”

I sucked in a deep breath before unloading the soap opera of what had transpired.

“Holy shit,” Eli remarked when I finished.

“Yeah. Pretty much.”

“I can’t believe you found your muse in the backwoods.”

“It surprised the hell out of me as well, but I’m not going to question it.”

“I wouldn’t either.” After pausing for a moment, Eli asked, “So she’s beautiful, huh?”

“Gorgeous, but not like the fake women I usually go after. She’s real.”

“She’s real or her tits are real?”

Groaning, I replied, “Once again, it’s not like that with her.”

“It’s not like that because she won’t let it be like that,” Eli countered, amusement vibrating in his voice. It was times like these I lamented having a twin brother who knew exactly how my brain worked.

“Yeah, it’s true that she shot me down, but I’m glad she did.”

“Seriously?”

“If we had fucked, who knows what would have happened to my songwriting mojo? I might still be blocked.”

“That’s one way to look at it, and a very mature way, I might add.”

I snickered. “I’m not sure I would trust your judgment on what’s mature.”

Eli laughed. “Whatever. So you really think you have another song brewing?”

“Yep. I’m pulling into the hotel now. Just as soon as I can get to my pen and journal, I’m at it again. Once I get to a stopping point, I’ll text you about doing a Google Hangout with Abby.”

“Sounds good. I’ll call her and let her know what’s going on.”

“Thanks, man. I probably need to text Jake and tell him I’ll be commandeering his Jeep for a little while longer.”

“I don’t think he’ll mind, especially if you’re finally getting the words you need. When do you think you’ll be back?”

“I’m not leaving here until I have enough to fill the album—or until my mojo runs out.”

“I’ll be interested to see what you come up with, but more than the songs, I’m interested to see how things pan out with Rae.”

“You mean you’ll be interested to see if we finally bang.”

“Actually, I was thinking more long-term than that.” Really, Eli?

“Like a relationship?”

“Bingo.”

“Get real, bro.”

“You’re the one who needs to get real, not me.”

“It’s not happening.”

“We’ll see.”

Scowling at the phone, I replied, “If you don’t have anything else to do but give me shit about Rae, I’ll let you go. Unlike someone else I know, I have work to do.”

Eli chuckled. “Whatever, man. Call me when you’re done penning our next CMA winner.”

“I don’t know about that, but I’ll let you know when the next song is done.

“You do that—oh, and tell Rae hello for me.”

“I will.”

“And thanks for putting up with my knuckleheaded brother.”

I laughed. “Goodbye, Eli.”

“Bye, Gabe.”

Review – Most Eligible Bastard by Annika Martin 



6 out of 5 stars

 6 stars 
Where do I even start?  Talk about a book hangover. This book had me drawn in, hook, line, and sinker. It was like a moth to a flame or an addict to his drug. I just couldn’t stop reading. It had the perfect blend of angst, heat,  and humor mixed with tons of vulnerability.  By far,  my favorite book by this author. 
Vicky is not what she seems. She is scarred from a past that has her hiding from the rich jerks who wronged her publicly worldwide!  She has a serious problem with anyone that has money and refuses to be pushed around. She has a backbone that I admired and absolutely loved how she used the dog to evoke humor into the story. She definitely showed her sassy side,  and I loved every minute of it. She didn’t ask to be the leading board member of a billion dollar corporation, but she refuses to be pushed around by rich people once again. She makes them sweat and damn if I don’t love that fire she shows. 
Henry is absolutely appalled that his mother would leave the family company in the hands of a con artist dog whisperer. He threatens  her  with things that would make lesser people crumble, but he has no idea who Vicky really is and that he basically just threw down a gauntlet by threatening her. He and his cousin decide good cop bad cop will be the way to take her down. The plan backfires right in his face though when he finds our the real story. And damn if he doesn’t fit the title of this book perfectly! 
I’m gonna kill to say this is one of my favorite reads this year. It just had an alluring quality that the author absolutely perfected! 



 Title: Most Eligible Bastard

Author: Annika Martin

Genre: Romantic Comedy  

Most Eligible Bastard, an all-new standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Annika Martin is LIVE!

He’s a powerful billionaire CEO who built the family business into an empire. The money doesn’t matter to him, but the company is his life. And then his eccentric mother wills it all to her tiny dog.

********

I’m Vicky, the dog whisperer. (Not really, but that’s what my elderly neighbor always says.) When she dies, she surprises everybody by leaving a corporation worth billions to her dog, Smuckers. With me as his spokesperson.

Suddenly I go from running my Etsy store to sitting in an elegant Wall Street boardroom with Smuckers in my lap. And my neighbor’s son, Henry Locke, aka New York’s most eligible bachelor, glaring across the table at me.

Rumor has it Henry’s a business genius who’s as talented in the bedroom as he is in the boardroom. Sure, he’s gorgeous. Sex-in-a-seven-thousand dollar suit. But…

He’s arrogant and infuriating.

He refuses to listen to me when I insist I didn’t con his mother.

He thinks he can bully me, buy me off, control me, even seduce me.

Henry may have the women of Manhattan eating out of the palm of his hand, but I’m so over entitled rich guys who think they own the world.

No way will his wicked smile be charming ME out of my panties.

His wicked…devastating…impossible-to-resist smile.

Oh well, who needs panties anyway?

 She glares at me now. “I can’t believe you tried to strip poor Smuckers of his vote. Do you have no decency?”

“When it comes to protecting this company?” I say. “No.”

Her gaze intensifies. “Just no?”

“None at all,” I say. “No decency whatsoever. Nada, if you will.”

Her pretty lips part. It’s shock. Maybe a little bit awe.

I give her an amused smile, adjusting my jacket sleeve over my cuff just so. The suit was tailored by a man who charges three hundred bucks an hour and is worth every penny.

“Uh,” she says. “You think you’re all that? You’re not.”

“Oh, I am all that,” I say. “I very much am. And for the record, I will crush you in the end.”

“Smuckers had this medication once,” she says. “We tried to hide it in his food, and he spit it out. No matter what we did, he’d spit it out.” She puts one finger on the paper with the new amendment and slides it back across the desk. “Smuckers doesn’t like when people try to fool him. That’s his message for you.”

“I have a message for Smuckers.” I put my finger on it and slide it back across to her. “Smuckers needs to know that we have a private investigator on this case. Smuckers might not have very nice food to eat if you ended up in prison.”

Finally she looks scared.

Brett swoops in. “I say we settle this. One-time offer from me personally.” He writes the number—$4,500,000.00. “This offer expires in two minutes.”

My heart pounds. She needs to take offer. We’ve shown how close she can come to losing everything.

She looks at the paper.

She’s all alone caring for that sister of hers. She’s poor—we have her banking information; we know it for a fact. She has every reason in the world to take it. Yet she hesitates.

“This is our last offer,” Brett says. “After this, we’ll take the company from you, and you’ll get nothing.”

She raises her brown eyes to me. It’s me she’s really dealing with. I like that she knows that.

“You know what Smuckers hates even more than being fooled?” she says.

My heart pounds. She almost lost everything to me, and now she’s going to tell me a dog story?

“He hates being threatened,” she says. “And bullied. He really, really hates it.”

“Well he’s going to have to get used to it,” I hear myself saying. “He’s used to bubbles and bows and sunny parks but he’s in the jungle now. There are animals who are faster and stronger and smarter than he is. Animals who will dominate him easily—savagely, even.”

“Then you don’t know Smuckers very well.”

“Oh, I know all about Smuckers, and I’d suggest he practice rolling over. Baring his belly for the superior predator.” I lower my voice. “Begging sweetly for mercy.”

The color heightens in her face. This shouldn’t be fun.

But oh, it is.

I keep going. “Smuckers may think he can request packets and bylaws and get up to speed, but he can’t compete here. He doesn’t have the skills.”

“Smuckers thinks owning fifty-one percent is the best skill to have,” she says.

Review – Hooking Up by Helena Hunting

23130590_1501119449985118_1288414903612263740_n

Hooking Up by Helena Hunting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I first met Amie and Lex in Shacking Up and again in Eye Candy (Hello, Gladiator Lex), I knew their story was one I NEEDED like air to breathe. The initial flirting, playful banter, and sexual tension was an instant HIGH. After a small hit, I had to have MORE. I also had to know if justice would be served to the A-man with the small pencil down below. Spoiler alert: The sweet justice dished out to the anti-hero A, was the icing on the cake.

Like little brother, Bane, Lexington ‘Lex’ is ALL ALPHA. A god. He so smokin’ hot and with a big heart!!! This melt-worthy man OWNS ME for life. Just YES!!! Lex is HERO PERFECTION, a lethal mix of hotness and heart that will have you wishing for a hook up with him.

”It’s okay, baby, I get it. know I’m irresistible.”

Amie is back and not the controlled and refined woman she was before. She is a full-on firecracker ready to take back her life! I ADORED her!!! Amie is a sassy and smart beauty, a heroine you’d want as your bestie.

Still nursing wounds from a wreck of a relationship, Amie is out to rediscover herself, recover the old Amie who valued herself most and lived, laughed, and had fun.

One night and it could have been Lex. It always should have been Lex. It should have been the man made for Amie. 

I missed my chance before but maybe now I can be part of what helps put her back together.

Collision after collision has Lex and Amie together again. It’s as if a force is pulling them, a strong tide. A force of fate.

”I can only behave myself for so long.”

Maybe I don’t want you to behave.”

23270308_1504159183014478_8575864469408181648_o

This hero and heroine EXPLODE TOGETHER!!! Their chemistry is COMBUSTIBLE. Their passion is PALPABLE. Their union is UNSTOPPABLE!!! I felt their chemistry steam off the pages, a blaze of fire that burnt me everywhere!!! 

I crush my mouth to Amelie’s…It’s not a very coordinated kiss. It’s messy and teeth-clashing. It’s want and need. It’s possession. Hers and mine.

Together, Lex and Amie were so MAGICAL!!!This hero and heroine are fused by FATE, making their story even more special. These two were created for each other. I loved them both so much!

”Tell me you don’t feel this pull.”

Hooking Up is heart-stopping sexy meets saucy and sweet—a romance you’ll want to hook up with NOW!! This story is a sensual SLOW BURN that blazed though me everywhere! I was ENRAPTURED!!! Hooking Up HIJACKED ME from the start, quickly becoming a HIGH, one I felt the whole time reading. I LOVED this romance fused by fate, bathed in blazing heat, and felt with love. I felt the POWERFUL PULL of Hooking Up so hard, a story I couldn’t put down. Hooking Up is ALL THAT and MORE!!!

💋💋💋💋💋 hot and heartfelt ‘Sexy Lexy’ kisses

synopsis.jpg

Amalie Whitfield is the picture of a blushing bride during her wedding reception–but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of proclaiming his undying love, her husband can be heard, by Amalie and their guests, getting off with someone else. She has every reason to freak out, and in a moment of insanity, she throws herself at the first hot-blooded male she sees. But he’s not interested in becoming her revenge screw.

Mortified and desperate to escape the post-wedding drama, Amalie decides to go on her honeymoon alone, only to find the man who rejected her also heading to the same tiny island for work. But this time he isn’t holding back. She should know better than to sleep with someone she knows, but she can’t seem to resist him.

They might agree that what happens on the island should stay on the island, but neither one can deny that their attraction is more than just physical.

Filled with hilariously scandalous situations and enough sexual chemistry to power an airplane from New York City to the South Pacific, Hooking Up is the next standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Helena Hunting, the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series and Shacking Up.

Review – Scandalous by LJ Shen

Scandalous by LJ Shen

Forget the top read of the year.
Forget the top read of the month.

Scandalous by LJ Shen is the TOP READ of my LIFE. 

I have never read a book like this before. I have never been so addicted to a book before, while it engraved itself in my BLOOD. Scandalous swam through me, pulsed through the deepest parts of me and sent me to a WHOLE other world. 

THIS is how a book should be written.

THIS is how a book should be delivered. 

THIS is how a book should make you feel. 

THIS is how it’s fucking DONE! 

The Sinners of Saint series is without doubt one of the best series out there. LJ has a way with words that just attack the mind, body and soul. She’s also the BEST at writing really hot, alpha males that we shouldn’t really like very much, aka Hotholes. In Scandalous though, for me, she wrote one of her most formidable HotHoles yet, with her BEST writing to date.

I felt WAYYYY too much reading this book, so much so, that it’s impossible to put WHAT I actually felt into proper words that make sense, but I’m gonna try. It made me CRAZY. ADDICTED. OBSESSED. As words coursed through my veins, emotion clogged my throat, and angst, angst ripped apart my heart and demolished my soul. Cover to cover my whole body was TINGLING. My stomach was TIGHT and yet, somehow, FLUTTERING, uncontrollably. My heart, SCREAMING, ACHING, POUNDING. OWNED. 

Scandalous, is raw, gritty, fierce and chock full of filthy, forbidden lust, hottttt, intense passion and need. #thatfirstkisstho! Trent and Edie are ugly and raw and filthy, yet somehow utterly irresistible. (Yes I borrowed a line, it makes so much sense). Their connection is OFF THE CHAIN. They are an explosion, their push and pull, dangerous but all consuming! I fell for them both, together and as individuals. They rocked my world.

There isn’t really anything more I can say at this point bar, read it! If you’re looking for a book that will hook you, grip your heart and soul, steal your breath, while it sets you on fire, then this is your book. If you’re looking for a book written stunningly with seamless perfection, and so much creativeness, this is your book. If you’re looking to be owned and all together consumed by the best book EVER, then this, THIS RIGHT HERE, is your book! There will never be enough stars to ever do this book justice. They simply don’t accommodate for books as breathtaking and as brilliant as this. It’s most definitely, one of a kind!

They call him The Mute for a reason.

Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks.

When he does, it’s with disdain.

When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.

When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.

He is thirty-three.

I am eighteen.

He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.

I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.

He’s emotionally unavailable.

And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.

Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.

And yet, I can’t stay away.

A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.

And oh, what beautiful chaos it will be.
