Review – Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland.


Mannnn, why must Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland be SO FREAKING GOOD? I mean I’m legit running out of good things to say about these two and the magic they write together! Like, this book, features a HOT British Dr who is pure SIN & SWOON! I can’t even!!

In all honesty, I am actually stuck on what to say. I just want to shout that this book was amazing and beautiful and perfect and awesome and everything. Because it was. It was all that and more.  

The writing was seamless. The story line, perfection. The connection of the characters was instant and intense and so believable. I was addicted from beginning to end and devoured it in one sitting. 

Penelope & Vi are unstoppable! I adore them together and apart. Never stop writing ladies, NEVER. #thisbritlovedyourbrit ❤



From the New York Times Bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Mister Moneybags, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. 

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways. 

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke. 

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime. 

No questions asked. 

Think about it. 

Or don’t. 

Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway. 

–Simon

Wow!!  Tara just wowed me with this forbidden office romance. The heat sizzled my kindle and the back and forth between characters kept me well engaged. This is definitely not a book you can read in bits.  It will have you reading through til the end.

She tries to resist him at every turn but he keeps pushing  and pushing  until she eventually gives in.  What scandal will come of this relationship is the question. 
This is a definite must read.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to more to come from Tara Leigh.

PENTHOUSE PLAYER Excerpts

Copyright © 2017 Tara Leigh

Excerpt #1

My eyes skipped over a blonde in a red dress, and then quickly returned. I hadn’t realized I’d started walking towards her until a waiter nearly spilled my drink. She was gorgeous. And when she tipped her head back to laugh at something the man beside her said, I decided that word was entirely inadequate. Stunning was much more apt. Exquisitely stunning, actually. Her creamy skin was flawless. And she was tall. I looked down, or at least she appeared tall with the five-inch stilettos on her feet. When her open-mouthed laugh faded into a generous smile, her wide eyes met mine. If she’d been an investment, she would have been labeled high risk, high reward, with a warning—Don’t buy if you can’t afford to lose.

Her lips closed around the edge of the glass in her hands, our stare unbroken. Her eyes were the bright shade of freshly cut, well-tended grass. And after she took a sip, white wine by the looks of it, she didn’t look away. Her open appraisal was a lure, and I took the bait. She could have been a model on a billboard in Times Square, or in the GQ magazine I subscribed to but never had the time to read. I know I should’ve turned away. This girl was clearly trouble with capital T, something I needed as much as a hole in my head.

After doing well with the first fifty million I’d been able to raise, I was just about to open my fund up to new investors. I didn’t have any official commitments yet, but I had no doubt my fund was about to grow to at least $500 million. I had a lot to consider, and a ton of work to do. This was the most important time in my career and I couldn’t afford to fuck it up by becoming a lovesick fool over some girl, exquisitely stunning or not.

I stopped in my tracks, maybe ten feet away, although I couldn’t tear my eyes from her face. She was young. Maybe too young? But then she smiled again. And not just any smile. This one wasn’t polite, or friendly, or casual in any way. No, her smile was so bright it heated the drink in my hands and blinded me from seeing anyone else in the room. Her curved lips were an invitation I couldn’t resist. Even though I knew I should.

Excerpt #2

“Obviously, something needs to happen between us. Soon. Preferably tonight, actually.”

Endorphins ping-ponged through my body like the ball in an old-fashioned arcade game. I’d tried to deny the chemistry between us, then suggested we ignore it. But to hell with that. It just wasn’t possible. I found my voice. “Someplace with a bed, or a couch.” I shrugged. “At least a rug, maybe a table.”

Tristan chuckled, attempting to finger-comb his hair into place. “Last time I checked, my apartment had all four.”

“Good. We can’t be seen in public together. At least not outside of the office.”

“About that. Bettencourt has more than one hedge fund you can work on. I’ll set you up with another portfolio manager or have you assigned to marketing or research, whatever you want.”

I shook my head. That wasn’t what I wanted at all. “No. Please don’t. Your strategy is the one I feel most closely aligned with. I applied to Bettencourt, hoping I’d have the opportunity to work on the Millennial Fund. This doesn’t have to be an either/or situation.” Taking a breath, I debated whether or not I should even verbalize the thoughts racing through my mind. Spit it out, already. I forced words through my mouth in a rush. “Let’s just have sex tonight and get it out of our system. Then we can pretend it never happened and focus on work.”

An aristocratic eyebrow arched upwards. “You think that’s all going to take? One fuck and we won’t ever need to do it again?”

I grinned at Tristan’s outraged expression. He even wore indignation well. “Okay, fine. Maybe we’ll have to do it more than once. But I just started here, and I intend to come out on the other side of this internship with a job offer. And I want it because I’ve proved myself on the Bettencourt trading floor, not in you bedroom. No one can know about us.”

Tristan scowled. “Is there someone else? Maybe not a boyfriend, just a friends-with-benefits kind of thing? You seem pretty eager to keep us in the dark.”

It’s what I know. “Don’t be ridiculous.”

Tristan tucked in his shirt, adjusted his sleeves. Skepticism darkened his eyes. “Casual sex, no strings attached. That’s what you want?”

“I’m not exactly the next Mrs. Bettencourt, Tristan. I highly doubt your socialite stepmother would approve of me.”

“Why?” Tristan seemed less than eager to take my words at face value. “Because you want to do more with your life than plan overpriced parties with bad food and watered-down drinks?”

I looked down, a blush coloring my cheeks. If he knew that even my own mother wouldn’t be seen in public with me, he would feel differently. “Something like that.”

Review – Hate to Love You by Tijan

HATETOLOVEYOUFINALCOVER2

Hate to Love You by Tijan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You know you’ve read a book that rocked your world when you don’t want it to end. Tijan Meyer writes such raw and riveting stories that FEEL SO REAL, and I am always left wanting…NEEDING MORE. Hate to Love You is a HEADY HIGH, an edge-of-your-seat, emotionally-entwined, delicious drama-infused love story! This tale HITS DEEP with a few punches—touchy situations you may not see coming but ones that will TOUCH YOU and ones you will FEEL! Heartfelt and hypnotizing, Hate to Love You is a romance you’ll feel while reading, and oh did I feel Tijan’s words take hold of me!

Hate to Love You INTOXICATED ME where I was fully immersed into the college world. These charismatic characters quickly became my classmates and my friends. My college days flashed before my eyes as I was taken back to a care-free time of university life with classes, books, frat parties, and young love. I lived and breathed this book as Hate to Love You became me.

Beautiful and badass Kennedy Clarke was burned in the past but is ready for a fresh start in college, hoping to learn from her high school mistakes and avoid all the hot boys and all the drama. Sarcastic, smart, and sassy, Kennedy is my spirit animal. She marches to the beat of her own drum and is a leader rather than a follower. I ADORED and ADMIRED this heroine so much!

It was better to start swinging first then to get hit by someone else.

College Quarterback, Shay Coleman, is a HOT with a HUGE HEART! It was INSTA-LOVE! Shay is a Viking God who OWNED EVERY OUNCE OF ME! I could not get enough of this perfect man! 

“That’s called charisma and perhaps map animal sexiness. It oozes out, and you are affected…I know what’s good, Clarke, and it’s definitely me.”

When Kennedy and Shay connect in class, it’s one CHEMISTRY-FILLED COLLISION! This hero and heroine’s chemistry is intense and insane. The sexual tension is off-the-charts! 

“We hate each other. Fine. But not right now.”

His lips nipped at mine. I felt them smile as he murmured,

“I don’t hate you right now at all.”

HTLY-Teaser3

I MELTED at words that are PURE MAGIC, ones that pulled me in deep! 

His lips met mine, and he whispered against them, “I don’t play fair. Ever.”

Hate to Love You rains with kisses…so many sweet and sexy kisses between a heroine who has lost faith in men and a hero who makes her believe again. These kisses said so much! I loved Kennedy and Shay together!

Oh. My. SWOON! My head was full of swoony sensations and so much goodness! 

“No thinking. Just . . .” He bent down, his lips over mine. “Feeling this.”

I felt Hate to Love You PENETRATE ME! The passion…the promise…I FELT EVERY WORD I READ! The push and the pull was my DRUG that I both hated and loved. Hate to Love You twists and turns around the heart in a romance roller coaster of feels, and I FELT IT ALL!

Words reached inside and grabbed my heart hard, tugging it the whole way where it stayed stuck in this story. Hate to Love You broke me with a heavy hit to my heart where my tears bled onto the pages. Happy tears. Heartbreaking tears. Hopeful tears. In a HEART-WRENCHING and HEARTWARMING romance, Hate to Love You made my heart both shatter and soar.

Hate to Love You is a SLOW BURN of a romance that oozes smolder, sweetness, and strength. Kennedy and Shays’ love is hard-fought love at its best, and their story seems far from over. As always, Tijan Meyer has WOWED ME and left me panting for more! I did not want Hate to Love You to end, this most delicious of dramas meets potent and passionate romance. I fell in love with this soul-searing story over and over again, one where the feels remain long after the last page. 

“You can let me in.”

“You’re in. You’re so far in that I don’t know what I’d do if I lost you.”

“Then I’m in, and you’re in, too.”

💋💋💋💋💋 sweet and smoldering ‘hate to love’ kisses

Rule #1: No hot guys.

It might sound ridiculous. I get it. It kind of is, but college was supposed to be my sanctuary. It was my place to start over. The rumors, the whispers, and the jealousy I endured through high school would all be gone.

No one would know me at college.

Rule #2: No drama.

I’d major in pre-law. I’d make a few loyal friends. Everything would be easy breezy. No one was going to use me or hurt me. I wouldn’t let them.

Rule #3: New year. New place. New me.

Right?

Wrong.

And all because of Shay Coleman.

Football captain and quarterback, he was the big guy on campus. The cocky guy in my political science class with a smirk. I hated him on sight . . .

. . . and he was about to break all my rules.

Review – The Edge of Us by Veronica Larsen 

The Edge of Us by Veronica Larsen 

At the back of The Edge of Us, Veronica leaves a note to her reader. A note that includes the following…

“This is my fifth full-length romance novel, but a part of me feels as though it’s the one I’ve been meaning to write from the very beginning. It’s as if all my other stories were leading me to this one as I settled into my style and prose.” 

No words have ever been more true. THIS is where Veronica Larsen has brought herself, The Edge of Us is what Veronica Larsen has worked towards and despite the fact her previous books have all been fantastic, she should never look back. The Edge of Us is THE BOOK. That book that truly brings a writer’s career to a point where they know where they are, they believe it and we as the reader believe it. This is Veronica’s best book to date, the best book of her life, and honestly I don’t think she’ll ever top it. The truth is, she shouldn’t want to. The Edge of Us, is deep, intricate, so damn raw, it’s vivid, visual and mesmerising and it stands alone, unreachable, and that’s okay. When people read it, they’ll realise. It doesn’t matter if this book can be topped what matters is the feeling it elicits in the reader. It doesn’t mean that her next book won’t be as good, I’m sure it will. But I believe deep down it won’t be THIS. What does matter though is that’s it’s one of the most outstanding reads EVER and my top read of the year. 

There isn’t actually much I can say about the story, because it’s layered, it’s complicated, brutal, heartbreaking, breathtaking, beautiful and then some. Every page plays with your emotions and pulls at the deepest parts of you. At times words are like a strong, purposeful punch to the gut, other times, words are like a balm to the soul as they breath hope and life and fix all the broken pieces. A delectable push and pull is present from the very first page and it never wanes, if anything it grows stronger and more prolific, until it explodes and rules your head, heart and soul. 

There are times I’m sure readers will hope for something that doesn’t happen, wish that something went a different way, I know I did, but Veronica weaves this story into you and, like I said, pulls every emotion out of you. She makes everything so real, you picture every burst of colour and every deep tangling web. You feel the pain and hurt, the lies and deceit, the love and devotion. Everything attacks all at once but it’s blissful and addicting. Like the strongest drug pulling you in deeper and deeper until there is only these words, only these characters,  only this book. 

The Edge of Us took me to my edge, it pushed my limits, broke and healed my heart. I couldn’t read fast enough and yet I never wanted it to end. I urge you to read this book, I urge you to go in blind, or as blind as you can, I urge you to trust Veronica, trust the words, I urge you to feel and experience. Because once you hit the end, it’s the best DAMN feeling ever.

6, but six really doesn’t even come close, stars.

Veronica Larsen ripped my heart out! This book is so well written with absolutely emotional, raw, and beautiful characters.” ~Alta Hensley, USA Today Bestselling Author

Eight years ago, Cole Van Buren left me at the altar without a single explanation. My heart’s been at a standstill ever since, the anger keeping me from moving on. Keeping me from seeing the man who’s been right in front of me all this time… 

Andrew’s been the friend I needed, the one constant through the hardest times of my life. But one night, the lines blur and we’re tipped into something more. Just when I’m ready to explore what we could be… 

My ex comes back.

Cole says he didn’t come to get me back, but I should know better. The answers he dangles overhead are the ones I need to finally let go.

Except there’s no such thing as closure, only a past that wants to pull you backward.

Review – Dr Stanton by TL Swan

My rating is 6 out of 5 but no number is enough!!

There really aren’t enough stars for this book. By far this is the best book I’ve read all year, and I dont say that lightly.

This book was perfect in every way. Am I surprised? NO!  because this author is amazing and I expect nothing less.
Emotional, angsty, sexy, anger, sadness, hate, love. These words describe this book. I literally had pains in my chest at many points throughout this journey. Make sure to have tissues because I ugly cried several times throughout and I don’t do that often. Make sure you have time to sit and read the whole book because I literally just read this rather long and thorough book in one sitting.
Ashley winds up on a date from hell and when a sexy man happens to walk by he is all of a sudden her husband. So they seal the deal many times overnight. She gives him her number and he promises to come to New York next weekend. Those plans are foiled and he loses her for years. Neither of them knew each others names to try to locate each other.

5  years later Ashley make the move to do her final internship under a well known and respected surgeon. What she doesn’t bargain for is that man to be the Dr. Stanton. Now all of her secrets are about to bite her in the butt.

That is all I will give you about the book because there so many twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting. It really is an amazing story.

If happiness is a gift.

Then Cameron Stanton is my Santa Clause.

I can’t tell you the exact moment I fell in love with him.
Only that I did.

With every glance, every touch, every minute…. he stole a little more of me.

I know because I met Gods gift to women in Vegas,
I pretended he was my husband to get rid of another guy.

He took our fake marriage seriously and it became his personal goal to consummate.

He spoke to me in French and I lied to him in German.
His laughter was addictive.

But I thought what happens in Vegas would stay in Vegas.

Until it didn’t.

Dr. Stanton turned up where I least expected and my lies came back to haunt me.

The attraction is palpable.
The secrets unchangeable.
I need him more than air.

Review – Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland 

Well, I’ve sat on my review for a day now. I’m not sure I can ever put into words how mind blowing Beautiful Mistake actually was. Once again I’m IN AWE of Vi’s words and lyrical talent. 

Beautiful Mistake is a MASTERPIECE. I honestly do not know how Vi repeatedly writes books THIS GOOD. I mean each and every book captivated and consumes. Each and every book feels fresh and flows perfectly. However, this book excelled all those previous to it. It eclipsed her previous works for me. Vi made this book SO MUCH MORE. Beautiful Mistake is like a symphony. As we progressed deeper and deeper into the book the beat of my heart gradually began to beat faster, my breaths came harder, with each and every build of the masterpiece Vi stole my heart. 

Beautiful Mistake touches on a student/teacher romance. There is no huge age gap and it’s more a Professor/TA romance but it still managed to have that forbidden aspect that made this book sizzle and burn. Throughout we get flashbacks of a past that pulls at every emotion, flooding the senses with a desperate need to know what happened. The suspense that weaves through this book was intense and addicting. As with all Vi’s books, there was trademark comedy, laugh out loud one liners and scenarios that left me giggling and falling deep in love with our hero and heroine. 

I looove Caine West. I’m 100% infatuated with him. He’s something else people. His words made my burn up and turned me to goo AT THE SAME TIME. He’s dirty, so dirty, but so raw, swoony and really romantic. Vi seriously does write some of the best hero’s EVER. Coupled with Caine was the fantastic, Rachel. Rachel was the PERFECT heroine for Caine. Super sweet, so funny and incredibly sexy. They matched together perfectly and stole my heart, while they fought for each others.

Beautiful Mistake consumed me. It became my addiction and I devoured this heartbreakingly beautiful romance. It undoubtedly became a favourite of mine and a top read of 2017!

A sexy new standalone from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Vi Keeland

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.
He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.
When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.
You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend–smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.
He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he’d done.
Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.
Only it turned out, the man I’d just told off wasn’t the right guy.
Oops. My mistake.
Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.
I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?
That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.
Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.
I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.
Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.
This was going to be interesting…

Review – Atheists Who Kneel and Pray by Tarryn Fisher 


Atheists Who Kneel and Pray by Tarryn Fisher

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

In one night, I sucked down Tarryn Fisher’s words like they were my air to breathe, inhaling Atheists Who Kneel and Pray. Tarryn Fisher breathes life into a story that hits straight to the heart. I knew that only after a few words, this soul-searing story would be MY EVERYTHING and that it was.

I couldn’t bring myself to the end that night so I savored that last ten percent the next day….

Then I sat, STUNNED SPEECHLESS, as the full force of this storm of a story HIT ME, this hurricane in words. Tears streamed down my face, eyes that were etched for a while with the waterworks that fell hard from mere words…words that wielded PASSION and POWER in spades. This whirlwind of words took me under its spell and all I could do while reading … experiencing … feeling … was pray that I would survive this story.

Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is a title as UNEQUIVOCALLY UNIQUE as the story itself, a tale so UTTERLY RAW and REAL. Tarryn Fisher’s words aren’t just part of a story you’re reading: They are an experience … a journey YOU LIVE and FEEL. I felt every emotion that the hero and heroine felt; their hauntingly beautiful love story was mine. Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is not just a story but a full-blown immersion where the heart, breath, and soul collide as they become one.

Gorgeous musician, David, needs a muse to give his songs that edge. Beautiful Yara is cynical, a non-believer of love, a floater from city to city. She is David’s perfect muse. The problem is that David believes in love.

The chemistry between Yara and David is palpable; their connection is passionate. I could feel their fire spark through the pages. Fire and ice is one fierce combination.

This was what it was like to be worshipped.


Real love is sacrifice and commitment.

Love was a leap of faith. Love was just a word until someone gave it a definition.


The problem is that love is not one-sided where one half worships the other; it’s reciprocal.



Don’t let it be too late.


I fell fast. I fell hard. I FELL IN LOVE WITH EVERYTHING in Atheists Who Kneel and Pray. I don’t know why I waited so long to meet Tarryn Fisher’s wonderful and wondrous writing, but I was a fool to procrastinate. Tarryn Fisher writes from the heart where her heart is poured into those beautiful and brilliant words. I felt Tarryn Fisher through her words. I just now need to devour her other masterpieces so I can feel the rest. How could I not feel those too?

Passionately poignant, heartbreakingly beautiful, and spiritually soulful, Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is A STORY FELT not read. I devoured Atheists Who Kneel and Pray with tears streaming down my face, tears of despair and desperation, tears of heartbreak and hope, and tears for love that never dies. My SOUL WAS SHATTERED YET SOOTHED, as my HEART BROKE in the most beautiful way from this beauty in words. Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is heartbreaking and heartwarming, the sweetest torture of a tale, MESSY LOVE AT ITS BEST.

Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is DEVASTATINGLY BEAUTIFUL, a book that bares itself to you but strips your soul bare too. This romance BREATHES LIFE INTO THE PAGES in a touching and turbulent tale where you can’t help but feel something spiritual … something MORE. It’s as if Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is fueled by fate, stamped with a spirit, perhaps something supernatural, which seeps straight to the soul. I can’t help but still feel this soulful story swimming through me, crashing hard into my heart like the tide, my heart pounding from this roller coaster of a Tarryn Fisher ride, a ride I never want to to stop feeling…a ride I never want to end.

“Love is not a part of something else. It’s the only thing.”


A TOP 2017 READ & MUST-CLICK ROMANCE!!!

She dates men who need her, but always moves on to something new, never staying in one place for very long.

David Lisey is in need of a muse.

A talented musician lacking lyrical inspiration. When he first sees her, he knows he’s found what he’s been looking for.

Yara believes she can give David exactly what he needs to reach his full potential:

A broken heart.

David’s religion is love. 

Yara’s religion is heartache.

Neither is willing to surrender, but religion always requires sacrifice. 


Dear Yara,

The bands in London, November 12th. Want to catch up?

David

So casual. So nonchalant. You’d think we were only acquaintances, that we’d once sipped a couple of beers together instead of tattooing love on our skin and reciting marriage vows. I read the e-mail again and analyze the shit out of it. How can I not? I count out the words: thirteen. The punctuation: four. His name, my name. A flippant, casual turn of phrase: catch up. In the end, there’s only so much psychoanalyzing you can do to a thirteen-word e-mail. I move on with my life, feeling rather pathetic. But not before I e-mail him back. And okay, sure, I don’t move on with my life. What does that even entail? Forgetting? Forgiving? Being happy? Besides, I know what he wants to talk about. I know why he’s coming.

Hi David,

Yeah, sounds good. Let me know when and where.

Yara

My e-mail is a word shorter.

I’m that petty.

A MUST MEET ROMANCE!!!

Review- Too Close To Call by Tessa Bailey



My rating is 5 out of 5 stars

As usual, Tessa Bailey delivers a 5 star read. This book was the perfect blend of spicy and sweet. First loves that get a second chance. I absolutely love those stories more than any other.

Bree bolts when it’s time for Skyler to move on to college and she decides to stay home to take care of her family. She’s essentially put her life on hold to do what’s best for her dad and sister. She is the epitome of a true sweetheart. She avoids Kyler at all costs when she knows he’s in town for a visit. That changes quickly when he shows up unannounced and has no intentions of leaving until Bree is his again.

I absolutely love these two. They have good old fashion values but boy does Kyler blow us away when he lets that alpha side out. It was a quick fast paced read that I couldn’t put down.

About TOO CLOSE TO CALL:

 

All-American wide receiver Kyler Tate’s life is about to change. A fairytale college career skyrocketed him to the NFL draft. Adoration and opportunity are thrown in his direction wherever he goes, thanks to being chosen in the first round by the Los Angeles Rage.

None of the accolades mean anything, though, without his high school sweetheart, Bree Justice, by his side. Four years ago, she walked away from Kyler, choosing a quiet life over the flash and notoriety his career would someday bring.

Now he’s back in their Indiana hometown, refusing to leave for Los Angeles without her. Demanding she give their life together a shot. Her heart never stopped bleeding for the love of her life, but Bree’s decision was final. Too bad their wild attraction has only been amplified by their separation, and Kyler won’t quit until Bree is wearing his ring.

 

“Whoa there,” Bree whispered shakily. “This is a church dance.”

Her words seemed to bring him back from whatever land he’d been teleported to. “Right,” he rasped. “We’re supposed to be setting an example.”

“Yes.”

“So I should definitely stop thinking about sucking on your lower lip.”

Bree’s thighs pressed together, her gasping inhale shivering all the way down into her tummy. Lower. “Stop that right now.”

His gaze remained zeroed in on her mouth. “Stop thinking about it or saying it out loud?”

Both.” Trying desperately to remain indignant in the face of that face—and that drawl, those muscles, his familiar scent—Bree warned him with a look. “You said we were going to be friends. There’s nothing the least bit friendly about lip sucking.”

“I don’t know.” He hummed in his throat and tightened his hold around her waist. “Seems like letting me do it would be mighty friendly of you.”

Bree tamped down a laugh. “Friendly or stupid?”

“Stupid?” Kyler frowned. “Why?”

“Because we both know where it leads.”Shit almighty. How had it come to this? She was plastered against her ex-boyfriend—whom she’d yet to shake completely. He looked delicious enough to eat, and now they were having a conversation about sex. And—and—she was wearing her feel- good dress. The one she wore when her hair was down and everything was shaved and waxed. Had she primped because Kyler was back in town? It was too infuriating to speculate on.

“You’re getting pretty worked up down there, supergirl.”

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

 

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

 

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

Review- Dirty Thief by Tia Louise


When you pick up a Tia Louise book, you know you will be reading an action packed read that is filled with heat. I love how she just jumps right into steamy scenes right away. I was so Happy to get another book in this series. While you dont have to read the other books in this series, I highly recommend you do because they are incredible.


Everything is going great at the palace until Ava’s past creeps in and we then go on the rollercoaster ride. I suggest you buckle up and get ready for the ride.

Dirty Thief, an all new sexy and scandalous installment in the Dirty Players Series by Tia Louise is now LIVE!

DIRTY * SEXY * SCANDALOUS

What do you get when you mix a brooding king with a sexy pickpocket? Not your usual fairy tale.

Ava Wilder is beautiful, she lives in a pink castle, and she’s a thief. Rowan Westringham Tate loves power, speed, and Ava.

Their romance is straight out of an erotic Cinderella story, until the one man Ava is running from shows up to claim what she stole—or to claim her.

Now Ava might be forced to take another thing to protect her happily ever after… A life.



Ava

I’m just about to text Rowan back when the door opens, and he’s standing in the entrance. His face is unreadable. He doesn’t enter. He only waits looking like the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen in a dark suit and tie. He’s still wearing the glasses he’ll occasionally put on when he’s reading, and I rise out of my chair, closing the laptop before I go to him.

“I’m sorry,”I say, reaching out for his hand.

He takes mine and raises it to his lips before pulling me closer.

“What’s troubling you, Ava?”

I look down at my shoes, awkwardness filling my stomach.

“You didn’t have tocome all the way over here.”

“Why are you having second thoughts about the baby?”

I take a deep breath and sigh, lifting my eyes to his.

“It just seems like everything is in such chaos. What makes us want to bring a child into this mess?”

His dark eyes soften as they hold mine, but he doesn’t answer immediately. I love that he doesn’t pat me on the head and tell me to stop being ridiculous. He takes my fears seriously.

“It’s our royal duty,”he finally says.

Now I’m frowning.

“That’s your only reason?”

“No…”

He touches the side of my cheek with his thumb, and I wait.

“I’d also like to see what happens when we take half of you and mix it with half of me.”

My frown softens a little.

“I have dreamed of our babies.”

I remember my chubby, dark-haired daydreams.

“I expect we’ll have an overly analytical, extremely controlled little leader,” he says,and I sigh and nod. “Or a thief who steals cars and races them away.”

“Rowan!”

I push his arm, ready to storm across the room.

Review – Mister Moneybags by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Mister Moneybags by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

When you begin a Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland collaboration you should totally ensure that you have NOTHING to do. Nothing to disturb you. Because these two have an uncanny way of dragging readers SO, SO deep into a story and NEVER LETTING GO. 

Since the very first collaboration “Cocky Bastard” I have loved Penelope and Vi working together. Each and every book they release always lands itself as a top favourite of mine. I get swept away, literally transported to another world. A world where I can just laugh out loud, swoon, feel and love. 

With Mister Moneybags I pretty much fell in love by 10%. I mean you can forget butterflies. I had bald eagles take flight in my tummy!! I’m talking BAT SHIT CRAZY bald eagles. The kind that cause the BEST tummy fizzles and flips. I was easily captivated, my heart pounded and my skin tingled. Everything in me lit up and I knew I was reading a WINNER. 

Bianca & Dex are infectious. Their story genius. I have to give Penelope & Vi such a big shout out here for how they played out the relationship, I daren’t say too much so not to spoil anything but I felt the EXACT SAME things as Bianca did with her heroes and I knew who he was all along! It was incredibly easy to get sucked into our characters in Mister Moneybags. Incredibly easy to fall in love with them. They oozed chemistry. The simmering underlying tension between them was electrifying. 

There is no doubt in my mind that Dex is my FAVE Ward & Keeland hero. I just felt like I was floating THE WHOLE TIME. High. Addicted. Overtaken. From him, his words, his craziness and his passion. EVERY DAMN THING. 
Mister Moneybags is charming, captivating, all consuming. A stunning masterpiece and a top, TOP read of 2017.

A new standalone from New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. 

I met Bianca in an elevator.

She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck.

The beautiful, raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed.

She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she’d dubbed “Mister Moneybags”—her afternoon appointment.

Bianca told me how much she hated Dex’s type—snobby, over educated, silver- spooned men who didn’t appreciate the simple things in life.

So, after the elevator finally started moving again, I cancelled the interview and let her believe I was someone I wasn’t—a bike messenger named Jay. I loved the way she looked at the fake me and didn’t want it to end.

I began dating her as “Jay”—all the while letting her interview the real me over email.

I didn’t expect that our chemistry online would be just as hot. 

I didn’t expect the mess I’d gotten myself into.

I didn’t expect that Jay and Dex would fall in love with her.

And she was falling for two men. 

Only, both men were me. 

And when she found out, we were both going to lose her.

Nothing could have prepared me for that day. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for what came after.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
