Review – Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland 

Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland 

Vi Keeland NEVER disappoints. EVER. Everything she writes is pure gold. Everything she writes is incredible. Sex, Not Love was just the perfect romance. I devoured this book whole in a matter of hours, I couldn’t put it down. There was nothing about this book that I did not like, nothing I would ever think needed to change. It’s PERFECT.

Vi  is a go to author for me. She’s the author who’s books I read when I want a solid contemporary romance that brings the heat, the feels and is as sexy as it is sweet. Sex, Not Love, fitted that to a t. From start to finish we are delivered magic in the form of Hunter who’s as delicious as he is dirty, sexy as he is sweet. I felt RUINED by this man. His cocky arrogance was HOT! And mannn did I swoon? *nods enthusiastically*. I swooned harrrrrrd! Nat was also a brilliant, captivating heroine. So easy to connect with and understand. She was written with flair and sass and her vulnerability was clear to see but I saw her as a character I would love to be friends with. She was just FANTASTIC. 

Together Hunter and Nat are explosive. Their chemistry all consuming. I loved the sizzle and burn of their build up and everything inbetween. Everything about them together just worked. Vi also worked in the perfect amount of emotion and feeling that 100% tugged on my heart strings. Together the emotions and the sexiness balanced flawlessly. 

If you’re looking for a read that will make you smile, swoon and get a little hot under the collar, a read that makes you feel then this book is the one you need! Vi Keeland has kicked off 2018 in tremendous fashion!! And as always I can’t wait to see what she does next!


From #1 New York Times Bestseller Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn’t dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.
It’s just sex, not love.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

Review – Tempt Me by Carly Phillips

CPTemptMeCover5x8_MEDIUM

Review graphic

I have some it before and I will say it again. Carly’s books just make me so happy! I so enjoyed this second book in the Bodyguard Bad Boys series. A sexy bodyguard meets his match in a determined nanny. And let’s not forget on adorable little girl who steals the show!

Austin Rhodes has a serious problem – his nanny. No matter how much he wants to, he cannot deny that Mia Atwood has gotten under his skin. Why wouldn’t she? She’s beautiful, strong and believes in the goodness of people. In spite of her past and all of her struggles, she still manages to put all that aside to be there for his daughter. It certainly doesn’t hurt that Bailey adores Mia. Just like Austin, Mia has tried to forget what she feels for her boss. She knows combining business with pleasure is something that she must steer clear of. She already knows how business can destroy and she won’t sacrifice her position – and Bailey – for a quickie with the boss. Oh, but when these two give into what they have been feeling, it is stunning. They have so much chemistry! Still the past is never far behind and when it creeps its way into what the couple is trying to build, it will be up to Austin to protect everything that he loves. Let the angsty twists and turns and those intense steamy moments begin!

Tempt Me was a wonderful quick read. Truly just wonderful! There was something for all of her fans. There was the sexy alpha, the brilliant leading woman that you cheer on loudly, a character or two that you loathe and a beautiful little person that makes it all worthwhile. There was the push and pull of attraction, the will they or won’t they moments and page turning suspense. A great addition to the Bodyguard series that is not to be missed!

FANTASTIC, Carly! So well done!

“So what’s your end game?”

“She paused, lowering the cup from her lips. “You’ll laugh. Or at the very least you won’t think it’s overly ambitious.”

He ignored his coffee, more interested in the fascinating woman sitting beside him. “Try me.”

“Someday I’d like a family of my own. A lot of kids not all mine. Kids who’ve been in foster care too long and never adopted because everyone wants babies.”She rubbed her cup between her palms, not meeting his gaze. “See? Nothing all that enterprising, like becoming a teacher or succeeding in business.”

He couldn’t stop staring, enthralled not just by her beauty but by her heart. “I think it’s inspiring, what you want to do.”And the man by her side when she fulfilled her dreams would be one lucky SOB. “Not for me, because been there, done that…the family and marriage thing, but I’m sure it can work for the right couple.”He shrugged, realizing he’d admitted way too much. “I hope you find what you’re looking for,”he said, meaning it.

She glanced down, her gaze sweeping over her watch on her wrist. “Oh! It’s time to pick up Bailey.”She crumbled the napkin beside her and picked up her cup as she rose to her feet.

He stood, joining her as they tossed their half-finished drinks in the trash. They headed to the car and he beat her there, opening the passenger door before she could grab the handle herself. He turned back and she stopped short. He caught her before she bumped into him, grasping her around the waist and pulling her close. She sucked in a surprised breath but didn’t back away, her face inches from his. Her mouth so damned close.

He knew better, he really did but he was tired of denying himself what he wanted and his body was definitely on board. He waited for a sign she wasn’t right there with him. If she pulled back or jerked away, he’d apologize and they’d move forward from there. Instead she swayed toward him, sealing her fate.

He grasped her waist, anchoring himself by touching her, the soft sweater doing little to hide her slender body or delicate curves. He tipped his head, sliding his tongue across her lips and with a soft moan, she parted her mouth and let him inside. She tasted of vanilla and coffee, a sweet flavor that was all Mia.

Their tongues touched, tangled, and his body came alive with a hunger he hadn’t known before.

She raised her arms, hands coming to his biceps, holding on for a brief second before she gave in and wrapped her arms around him, pulling him close, giving him all the excuse he needed to deepen the kiss. He tilted his head and consumed her, swirling his tongue around the further recesses of her mouth.

He had no wall, no car door to push her against, which was a good thing because he wouldn’t have been able to control himself if he crushed his body against hers.

Review – Sky’s The Limit by Elle Aycart



5 out of 5 stars

 Well this was certainly not a book I ever pictured myself reading but was recommended, so I took a chance. Boy was I in for a roller coaster ride. There is comedy around every corner just for the very fact of the  town that Sky has been stranded in, doomsday preppers. Im talking bat-$hit crazy lunacy from some of these characters. You couldn’t help but laugh at the antics and the whole situation Sky has found herself in. 


Sky is a fashionista who believes she is on her way to Paris, France for a job teaching English  while she pursues her fashion career. Cue hilarity. Her sister booked this whole trip  for her,  and when Sky finds out she is indeed not going to Paris, France but Paris, Minnesota things get crazy fast. Her mini car breaks down in a snowstorm. She has no signal on her cell, and is definitely not dressed for these temperatures. Lucky for her Logan comes along and saves her, but now the fun begins. 


When some of the residents find out Logan brought who they are referring to as patient zero into their town, they lose their minds. They demand quarantine and it doesn’t help that Sky winds up with the flu. Her and Logan get stuck  together and eventually sparks start to fly and not just in the fireplace. Great story. I would definitely recommend it. 




 Tired of waiting for her big break in the fashion industry, Sky Gonzalez, eternal part-time student and overworked retail drone, quits her job, sublets her New York apartment, and embarks on a semester abroad study program in Paris. Paris! Time to throw caution to the winds and jump-start her dreams. What’s the worst that could happen? 


How about getting sent to the wrong Paris? As in Paris-frigging-Minnesota?

Bye-bye career dreams. Bye-bye glamour and haute couture. Hello flannel shirts, mind-numbing cold, zero bars on the cell phone, and socially challenged mountain men with tons of unruly facial hair.

So yeah, let the truck barreling her way hit her, please. Less painful.


Logan should have dodged the little lost waif and kept on driving. Who in their right mind walked in the middle of the road, dressed in white from head to high heels, during a snowstorm? Clueless city girls, that’s who. Sky is all that Logan has gladly left behind: stylish, cosmopolitan, and a massive pain in the butt. He wouldn’t trade a single day in his quirky little corner of the woods for all the high-maintenance beauties the city can offer.

Too bad this beauty has been deemed a health hazard and quarantined in his house. Damn his doomsday-prepper neighbors and their paranoid emergency protocols. Now  he has to keep Sky in and the pandemic squad out until the roads are clear. The question is, will that happen before or after Sky realizes she’s under house arrest?

Ah, the best-laid plans…



 

 Logan addressed the pandemic squad up on the platform. “Sorry to break it to you. This is a free country. You can’t go quarantining people at will.”

“Wrong. Exactly because this is a free country, we can.”
There were some mumbles of agreement from the crowd, “That’s right” and “You got it” and “Try to stop us.”
“We live in a democracy. Let’s take a vote,” Carol suggested. “All in favor of quarantining Patient Zero, please raise your hands.”
Everyone, including a smirking Ty, raised their hands.
“Oh, come on,” Logan grumbled. “Really? You serious?”
“Motion accepted,” Carol said, wrestling the gavel from the mayor and banging it on the podium. “Besides, Patient Zero doesn’t have to know she’s been quarantined. Just keep her indoors by any means necessary until she gets better.”
“Or she kicks the bucket,” somebody chimed in.
Nuts. The whole bunch of them. Down to the very last one.
“She’s not Patient Zero, people. Her name is Sky and she’s got the flu, damn it. Not Ebola. Just a common, garden-variety flu.”
“By our calculations, Patient Zero has been here almost twenty-four hours. We’re late on containment,” Carol said.
Logan shook his head in dismay. Man, like talking to a wall.
“You had her hidden away for a whole day?” Ty asked impishly.
“She was just sleeping on my sofa.” Logan realized his mistake right away and turned to Carol and the rest. “You are not burning my sofa. Are we clear?”
Whether it was clear or not, Logan didn’t know, because Carol ignored his words. “And we’ll be monitoring you,” she added while the rest nodded. “At the slightest indication you’re sick—”
“Yeah, yeah, you’ll quarantine me too, and if I don’t get better fast enough, you’ll shoot me and cremate my remains.” Along with the damn couch, of course.
Carol rolled her eyes. “Don’t be silly.”
“Yeah, don’t be silly,” someone interjected. “We’ll autopsy you before that. Dissect you into tiny pieces.”
Jesus fucking Christ. Why couldn’t his neighbors have been the gearheads prepping for solar flares that would fry the grid? More kumbaya. Less ready to dissect.
“This is all your fault, Megan,” he said to his sister, who was sitting two rows behind him. “Couldn’t you have moved somewhere else? A normal fucking place?”
She just laughed. “You heard the lady. Keep Patient Zero indoors—by any means necessary.”
“Ha. Ha.”
“What? Skills too rusty to keep a woman indoors?” she asked.
“I can help,” Ty added. “Is she pretty?”
Gorgeous, actually. Big, dark eyes. Olive-colored skin. Delicate features. But that was beside the point too.
“Fuck off, both of you,” Logan muttered. Raising his voice, he addressed the crowd again. “You’re certifiable. All of you.”
“I totally agree,” Carol said. “We give you far too much leeway. Look at how flexible we’ve been about your toxic contaminants.”

 After a colorful array of jobs all over Europe ranging from translator to chocolatier to travel agent to sushi chef to flight dispatcher, Elle Aycart is certain of one thing and one thing only: aside from writing romances, she has abso-frigging-lutely no clue what she wants to do when she grows up. Not that it stops her from trying all sorts of crazy stuff. While she is probably now thinking of a new profession, her head never stops churning new plots for her romances. She lives currently in Barcelona, Spain, with her husband and two daughters, although who knows, in no time she could be living at the Arctic Circle in Finland, breeding reindeer.

Review – Under The Lights by Tia Louise 

5 out of 5 stars 

  Tia Louise strikes again. That woman needs a fire extinguisher around when she’s writing. She has the heat packed in surrounding you with hot and sexy words. Tia’s books definitely never lack for heat, but this book!! This book is so much more than off the charts heat.


Bonechilling, dangerous, angst all packed into a powerful book that you will not be capable of putting down until THE END! Then, you’ll be dying for more. You’ll be chomping at the bit for more. I feel for all the messages Tia will be bombarded with asking for more. Hot dang woman. You’re a rockstar!!


 “All the sin, heat, and dirty underbelly that comes with it. I’m dying to read Under the Stars!” –Nora Flite, USA Today bestselling author

Under the Lights, book one in the thrilling, white-hot second-chance Bright Lights Duet from USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise is available NOW!

Under The Lights

Heroes don’t last long around here…

Fall in love with the sexiest girl in New Orleans?

Check.

Prepare to die for her?

Double-check.

Larissa is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.

She’s the rising star of the Pussycat Angels, the hottest burlesque show in the French Quarter.

I’ll never forget the first time I saw her.

The curve of her breast outlined by sparkling rhinestones.

Slim hips wrapped in black fishnets.

Long, dark hair…

She’s the Dark Angel who stole my heart.

Her body is intoxicating, our love overwhelming.

Cat eyes and blood red lips.

Sizzling fingers on white-hot skin.

I couldn’t keep my hands off her…

But her fame had a dark side,

A sinister shadow lurking under the lights.

I would do anything to save her…

He would do anything to see me dead.

“You’re so good.” Her voice is soft, and she traces her finger along the bandage before lifting her blue eyes to meet mine. “Thank you for buying me lunch. For saving me…”

Without warning, she steps forward and wraps her arms around my waist, pressing her face against my chest, and I don’t hold back. She fits perfectly in my arms, and I inhale the sweet scent of her hair just before I press my lips to the top of her head.

Her voice is muffled against my shirt. “It feels so safe here.”

“Lara,” I whisper in her hair. “I want to keep you safe.”

She pulls back, and I loosen my hold. But she doesn’t leave. She puts her hand against my cheek, lifting her chin as she rises higher on her toes. Hell if I make her work for it.

Leaning forward, I capture her lips. They part, and our tongues meet, curling together as I hug her closer to me. She exhales a little noise, and her fingers thread in the sides of my hair. I trace a line with my lips to her ear.

“I want you so much,” I whisper.

She turns, searching for my mouth, and I kiss her. She fists my shirt in her hands, pulling it up and placing her palm against my bare stomach. I groan deeply, and my hands slide under her ass. I lift her against my chest, and her legs go around my waist. Our kisses are wildfire, fast-moving, lips pulling, hungry for something more. Something just within reach.

She moving subtly against my waist, and the blood rushes downward. I’m hard and she’s riding me, stroking my erection with her crotch.

“Lara,” I groan.

Her lips still, and she holds my cheeks, looking into my eyes. “That night on the catwalk… The way you looked at me…”

My brow collapses at the memory. “You’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.”

“I only want you to see me.”

Her lips are pink and swollen from my kisses. I lean forward and kiss her again, tasting her like she’s water in the desert. She exhales a little noise, and it’s a charge straight to my cock.

I love her lips. I love her mouth. I want more. I want all of her.

“Does your waist hurt?”

She leans forward, running her nose along my jaw. “Nothing hurts. Everything is amazing.”

Review – Buried Alive by Stacey Marie Brown

Buried-Alive SMASHWORDS

Buried Alive by Stacey Marie Brown

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If there is one constant in reading for me it’s 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 Stacey Marie Brown book cherry with BURIED ALIVE that was more of an explosion because HOLY HEADY, HOT, and HEART-HITTING READ!!! From the very first page, Buried Alive was my FIX and I could not get enough!!! Life was on hold as I. Could. Not. Put. This. Book. Down!

A broken hero and heroine drawn are together.

Broken sees broken.

His eyes drifted over my head, a scary blankness in his eyes. I recognized that expression. It was one I saw in the mirror every day. Vacant. Numb.

Darkness sees darkness.

”We both live in the darkness.”

Like sees like.

The longer I was around her, the lighter I became.

Rhys and Hannah are HERO AND HEROINE PERFECTION!!! Rhys is one hot, heartfelt, intense, dark, and super star snowboarder—the ULTIMATE ALPHA! Hannah is stunning and strong—a pillar of strength! Hannah and Rhys’ humorous and heated banter was INTOXICATING!!! I loved these kindred spirits so much who MELTED ME with their darkness mixed with light! These two imperfectly perfect and shattered souls made each other whole.

All I could do was hold on as he consumed me. Breathing me in whole.

Like a shard of glass, Buried Alive glitters and shines, then cuts deep. Humming with adrenaline-inducing action and paralyzing with emotional intensity, this story of two broken souls fused by fate will sear itself into your memory long after the last page. This story SLAYS demons and souls. This story is healing after heartbreak. This story is life and living. This story is ALL THE FEELS!!! THIS STORY IS EVERYTHING!!!

He was here to destroy me.

Amusing. Arousing. Adrenaline-filled. Addicting. Awe-inspiring. An electrifying and emotionally-rich roller coaster of a sports romance, Buried Alive is an ADRENALINE RUSH OF FEELS until the end!!! It twists and turns like pro snowboarder, Rhys, conquering the slopes. My feels were free-falling through this story. I felt every word I read in Buried Alive. This romance is HARD-FOUGHT LOVE at its best!!! Buried Alive is still BEGUILING ME!!! This heart-pounding and heartwarming romance still holds my heart.

”You made me feel alive again.”

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 ’buried itself into my heart’ stars

Review – Fake Wife by Stacey Lynn 


 5 out of 5 stars

 What  a whirlwind adventure this book was. Both of the main characters had been facing hardship of a different kind, but that all changes the night Teagan rear ends Portland’s most eligible bachelor.  Neither knows at the time, but both of their lives are  about drastically change. 


Teagan gets laid off only to come home and did her boyfriend of 7 years banging a blonde in her own bed. She has nothing. She is now stuck in a car with all of her belongings, not knowing what to do next. Then fate answers for her when she rear ends Corbin.  Gee, what else could possibly go wrong. Or not??? 


Corbin has just found out that the land he wanted of his  grandmothers  has stipulations that he never saw coming. He must be married for 2 years before the property is his free and clear. Fate just so happens to drop Teagan in his life  by way of fender bender!  Lol. 


He thinks he has it all figured out. Get married as soon as possible  so he can get the divorce done and over, but fate may have other plans for the two who don’t trust so easily. What a great read. I highly recommend it. 


 Fake Wife by Stacey Lynn

Publication Date: January 9th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

This marriage is strictly business . . . until the temptation gets way too real.

 

Sterling: I loved my grandma, but I don’t need her money. All I care about is keeping the house—the only place that’s ever felt like home. That, and screwing over my dad, who wants to turn the property into a mall. There’s only one catch: To receive my inheritance, I have to get married within six months. Me, the guy who’s never dated a girl for more than six minutes. Now I need to find a woman I can trust. So when I’m rear-ended by a Prius, I figure it’s a sign that I’m supposed to meet gorgeous, down-to-earth Teagan Monroe.

 

Teagan: First I lose my job. Then I come home and find out—in the most graphic way possible . . . yeah, that way—that my boyfriend is a cheating jerk. And then I speed off and nearly kill Portland’s sexiest bachelor. Sterling Lane should be pissed. Instead, he offers me more money than I’ve ever seen in my life to marry him and live together in a mansion for two years. No sex. No feelings. Just cash—enough to make all my dreams come true. Then we go and break all our rules . . . and I realize I’m falling in love with my fake fiancé.

  Prologue

Teagan

I stare at the man, the absolutely beautiful man, across the table from me, completely disbelieving what he’s just said.

I had to have misheard.

He couldn’t have just offered me what I think he did.

Perhaps when I slammed into the back of his Mercedes forty-five minutes ago I gave him a concussion. Maybe the accident gave me a concussion.

“Are you serious?” Propping my elbows on the table, I lean forward to hear him better. “You can’t be. We should get you to the hospital. I think when I rear-ended you it gave you a concussion. Are you sure you didn’t hit your head?”

Corbin Lane relaxes against his chair at our table at Le Chat Noir. His golden-brown hair shines, a bit wavy, long on top but still short enough not to cross the line from professional to hipster. His cornflower-blue eyes haven’t veered from my direction for the last hour.

A typical man would have yelled at me, threatened me with a lawsuit, demanded my insurance information, and returned to his day, doing whatever playboy billionaires do.

Not this guy. He asked for my insurance information, and when he saw the tears streaming down my cheeks, the clothes and boxes strewn all over my cramped backseat, he asked me if I was okay. Then he escorted me to this nearby restaurant, asked me a million questions, and then this . . .

This . . . proposition, as he called it.

“I’m not joking. I think this solves both of our problems.”

I drink the rest of my wine and set the glass aside. The alcohol has made me tipsy.

Corbin smiles again. I’ve seen that smile plastered on the gossip pages and on the news for the last five years, ever since I moved to Portland. So sexy he makes girls stupid, he’s an heir to the Lane Holdings fortune, a great-grandson of one of the Oregon Gold Rush families, and son of the CEO of Lane Holdings. When his father retires, Corbin is poised to run the multibillion-dollar company.

“I think you’re going to have to explain it to me again.”

“It’s simple, really. You need a place to live and I’m offering you one. You need time to find a new job, and I’m providing financially for you to do that. We can iron out the details later, but this needs to last at least two years.”

Two years. Two years of my life spent in close proximity to one of Time magazine’s top-ten sexiest and wealthiest bachelors in the world. Three years in a row.

Yeah, I’m a fangirl.

Shit.

Two more years of life wasted.

Although the money he’s offering will definitely help me set up my dream when it’s over.

“Listen, Corbin—”

“Consider it. Take all the time you need.”

“I’m still not sure I understand what you get out of it.”

Beautiful, luscious lips tip into a full-blown smile and I’m almost blinded by the brightness of his teeth. “Me? I get a wife.”

Review – Relay by Layla Reyne 

4 out of 5 stars 

 I have been anticipating this book for months. It’s not everyday that you come across a swimming series and after Irish and Whiskey, I just knew we were in for a treat. I had one tiny issue with the book that explains why 4 stars instead of 5. I felt the ending to abrupt, but I know we’re getting getting another book that will provide some of the pieces I felt we missed at the end. 


It was definitely a second chance almost haters to lovers. There was alot of animosity between Alex and Dane. A showdown 10 years in the making. It made for a hell if a ride as they navigated all the battles thrown their way. I’m definitely looking forward to book 2.


 “Layla Reyne does a fantastic job portraying the pressures and delights of being an elite athlete, and how questing for the gold and going after a second chance at romance with the man you never fell out of love with are complex, emotionally intense pursuits. I was rooting for Alex and Dane from the beginning to the end, both in and out of the pool.”

-Tamsen Parker, USA Today Bestselling author of the Snow and Ice Games series

Book Blurb:

Captain is not a title Alejandro “Alex” Cantu takes lightly. Elected by his teammates to helm the US Men’s Swim Team, he proudly accepts the role, despite juggling endless training, team administrative work, and helping out on the family farm. And despite his ex-lover, Dane Ellis—swimming’s biggest star—also making the Olympic Team.

Dane has been a pawn in his celebrity parents’ empire from crib to pool, flashing his camera-ready smile on demand and staying deeply in the closet. Only once did he drop the act—the summer he fell in love with Alex. Ten years later, Dane longs to cut his parents’ strings, drop his too-bright smile, and beg Alex for another chance.

Alex, though, isn’t ready to forgive and forget, and Dane is a distraction he doesn’t need on his team, until an injury forces Alex to accept Dane as his medley relay anchor. Working together, their passion reignites. When Dane’s parents threaten reprisal and Alex is accused of doping, the two must risk everything to prove Alex’s innocence, to love one another, and to win back their spots on the team, together.


 

 Dane’s gaze shot to Alex’s reflection in the mirror, and he dropped the razor. He was sure it clattered against the sink, but he couldn’t hear it for the blood whooshing in his ears. Blood that beelined south as his gaze made a similar journey down Alex’s body. The mesh top showed off his broad chest better than Dane had imagined, and those ratty jeans fit just shy of decent. It wasn’t like he hadn’t seen Alex shirtless and in jammers daily, but that was Alex the swimmer.

Unreachable. A safe distance away.

This was Alex the man. Standing five feet behind him.

Looking like everything Dane had ever wanted.

His gaze swept back up and met Alex’s in the mirror. He held the heated stare until it burned, then cast his eyes aside with a muttered “Fuck.”

Review – Something So Irresistible by Natasha Madison 

6 out of 5 stars 

 6 stars


Starting out this story, you already think Max is a jerk from previous books. I’ll tell you what though, he will have you mesmerized and enchanted. If you’re a softy like me, have some tissues handy because I did happy cry multiple times. 


It turned into more than a sports romance for me. Just the fact that we see these two individuals totally tear down their walls for each other was the most beautiful thing. 


Yes the chemistry was off the charts, for sure!!  These two are HOT between the sheets and any other place they can find. The fact that they had to keep this relationship hidden broke my heart. You could tell they were soulmates,, but in the end everything played out perfectly, and it was So Irresistible! 

 Max Horton 


They call me an outcast like it’s a bad thing.

An asshole byproduct of a shitty upbringing. I don’t care about anything except myself and my little sister.

I will always protect what’s mine.

With one year left on my hockey contract I’m keeping my head down and my eyes on the goal.

A collision, with her, changes my entire existence.


Allison Grant

Never fall in love with a sports star. That’s what my stepfather always said. He told me athletes are complicated and moody—that the higher their paycheck, the lower their morals.

As public relations for the New York Stingers I know exactly what he means, but I can’t seem to say no to a friendship with one beautiful, damaged man.

What started out as hate turned into something else.

We tried to stay away, to keep our distance, but the pull was too strong.

Something forbidden turned into something so irresistible.

 “You may now kiss the bride,” Judge Reynolds says right before Max grabs my face in both of his hands.


“I love you,” he whispers, then his lips land on mine, gently and full of love.

My hands go to his waist as I close my eyes and take in the safety of my husband.



“I love you with everything that I am,” he murmurs against my lips. I smile and look into his crystal blue eyes.

“I love you more,” I say. He lets go of my face and we shake the judge’s hand. He grabs my hand and we walk out of his chambers while my chiffon train trails us.



Max proposed to me three hours ago. He got down on one knee and vowed to love me and only me till his last dying breath while I stood there in the middle of the shark reef in the Mandalay Bay. It took me two seconds before I nodded and got down on my knees with him, buried my face into his chest, and cried from happiness. I was completely and utterly in love with him. And not one person in my family knew. Well, none of the men knew. But this isn’t about them. This is about me, about Max, about how he took my heart into his hand and treated it like delicate crystal, making sure he bubble wrapped it to keep it safe.



Now here I am, watching my husband dressed in a black tux hold my hand and me in my two-piece lace dress. It is beaded from my collar all the way down. It ties around my neck but leaves my back bare. My arms are also bare. A gold belt ties the second part of the dress, floor-length split chiffon. My legs slip out while I walk, showing off my something blue, which is my Carrie Bradshaw Blue Manolo Blahnik.



As soon as the door to the chapel opens, my chiffon dress blows up almost like Marilyn Monroe’s, the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas almost non-existent since we are off the Strip. Someone in the distance must have snapped a picture because his flash went off.

“I think someone just took a picture of us,” I tell him while we make our way to the car that is waiting for us.

“Angel, it’s Vegas, everyone is taking pictures.” He waits for me to get in before climbing in after me. “So, my wife, where do you want to go?” Max turns to me and smiles while his thumb rubs the hand he’s holding.



“Back to our room.” I look at our hands. “I want to go back with you and lock the door and just be with my husband.”



“I was hoping you’d say that.” He pulls me to him, his arm going around my shoulder, and I fit perfectly in the crook of his arm.



We watch the city lights come into focus again once we get on the Strip. Walking through the lobby, I hold on to my husband’s hand, watching his ring glisten in the light. Max unlocks the door for us. Walking in, I head for the living room that is now turned into what looks like a small reception. Gone are the couches, and in their place is a cast iron square with blush pink roses wrapped all around it. Tea lights make it across. All the furniture is gone. The only thing in this room are blush roses, which are my favorites.

“This place looks like a fairy tale.”

Max walks to me, holding a bouquet in his hands. “For you.” He hands it to me as our song “Dive” comes on.

“Dance with me?” I ask him as I walk to him.

“Every single day of my life.” He wraps an arm around my waist. I hold the bouquet around his shoulders and we hold our free hands to his chest.



He takes his phone out and raises his hand, snapping a picture of us. I’m looking at the camera while he looks at me. “Stunning,” he says quietly as his cell phone rings. “Angel, don’t freak out.” His voice is curt, tight.

I don’t have to time to say anything because my phone buzzes with a text from Matthew.



Allison, when you get this you better call me.



“Oh my God.” I look at him. “What did we just do?” He looks at me shocked, steps back, and away from me.

“Max.” I reach out to him while he dodges me.



“A mistake.”

I don’t know if he’s asking or telling. My heart hurts as his eyes go dark. He darts out of the room and the front door slams after him. As I stand here in my wedding dress, a tear rolls down my face, and I look down and see my glistening wedding band.

 When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Review – The Thing About Love by Kim Karr

The Thing About Love by Kim Karr 

“He was the Ying to my crazy Yang. He was my perfect. He was my soulmate.”

The Thing About Love is a beautiful, HOT, enemies to lovers, romance between two incredibly charismatic characters that are just MADE FOR EACH OTHER. 

Jake & Juliette have a sizzling connection. From the start these two start a fire and only burn hotter as the book progresses. Their whole story is brilliantly paced and believable. It is also emotional in some places, adding in a beautiful aspect that just makes this story what it is. 

I am forever a fan of Kim Karr. Her males are always spot on and so, so easy to fall in love with. Her females always have the perfect balance of sass and insecurity that make them real and connectable. Kim is most definitely kicking of 2018 with a great book and I urge everyone to read it!

An emotional and unforgettable new romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.

The whole stethoscope-and-white coat thing isn’t my cup of tea. 

I prefer a man with an artistic vein in his body. 9 – 5 hours. And I can definitely do without the half-lidded, sleepy bedroom eyes. (Okay, so those are kind of sexy.)

Tall, dark, and handsome doesn’t change the fact that he’s arrogant, cocky, and rude.

Not that I care, but he’s made it clear he wants nothing to do with a quirky girl like me, which is why he said no.

Turns out no isn’t an option.

I have a quickie wedding to plan, and Dr. Jake Kissinger doesn’t have a choice. He looks at our situation like he’s stuck with me, but in reality I’m stuck with him. Stuck with his pouty mouth. His long, lean body. And stuck with those loose, low riding scrub pants. (Okay, so the doctor thing is growing on me.)

When spending time together turns into more than it should, I know I’m in trouble.

He isn’t supposed to make my heart pound.

I’m not supposed to make him look twice.

And we aren’t supposed to spend the night together. (Okay, so he has more than one artistic vein in his body, and other places.)

Falling for him is definitely a mistake.

Here’s the thing…

Jake is unavailable, and I know it.

Just not in the way you might think.

I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
