Review: Fling by Jana Aston


I have a crush on my boss' best friend.
At least it's not my brother's best friend.
Or my best friend's brother.
Or... never mind. It's all pretty cliche.

And worse? My boss' best friend is his business partner.
Which sort of makes him my boss too.
Okay - it's not sort of. It's definite. Gabe Laurent is off limits. Totally off limits.

Which is fine. I make do with my imagination. He'll never know. Ever.
Unless my work bestie passes me an eighties-style teen movie sex quiz
during a meeting and I fill it out.

And it ends up in Gabe's hands...


*** Please Note ***

Wrong - Sophie's Story
Right - Everly's Story
Fling - Sandra's Story
Trust - Chloe's Story 

Each book can be read on it's own, but TRUST takes place 6 months after the first three books.
Characters from those first three books appear in TRUST, living their happily ever afters.

My 5 star review:


This is my first Jana Aston book and let me just tell you that it will not be my last.

Fling is so good and it left me with wanting so much more.

Omg....when Gabe walked into Sandra's door and said take your clothes off, I dropped my kindle in shock. I just looked at my front door thinking, can he just come and knock on my door!

Then the church scene before the rehearsal dinner. Be still my beating heart! I love me some sixteen candles. It is still my all-time favorite 80's movie.

But anyway I loved this book. It is a super-fast read. I literally turned the television on in the Livingroom and told my son and girls that I had a headache.

What?! You would too if you read some of the things Gabe was saying. I couldn't out the book down. Hell I even turned my volume down on my phone. So no one could interrupt my book time.


(Don’t worry my son is 15 and my bonus girls are 10 & 7. They were fine. LOL)

Review for The Fix Up by Kendall Ryan


From New York Times bestseller, Kendall Ryan, comes a sexy new standalone novel. 

My tempting and very alpha friend Sterling Quinn is someone I consider off-limits. 

It's not just that we're friends, he's also cocky, confident, and British, which means he's a walking aphrodisiac. 

But lately he's been giving me the look. You know the one. When he thinks I'm not paying attention, and his gaze lingers for too long. 

When we start working together, that's when the sexual tension between us gets so thick, I want to hack through it with a machete. I want to make all these deep feelings I've harbored for him disappear, because there's no way this can end well. 

The lines between business and pleasure become irrevocably blurred, and I'm stuck between a rock and Sterling's very, very hard place. 

Rather than keep a level head about our growing attraction, Sterling wants to go all in, showing me just how explosive we can be together. 

But I've been around long enough to know that this British bad boy is more than my heart can handle. I'm not about to be cast aside like yesterday's underwear when he's done having fun. 

Sterling’s never been told no, and he's not about to put his ego aside and play by my rules. But I never thought he'd fight so dirty.

Amazon Link:



My 4 Star review

Super freaking cute!

I really enjoyed reading this book. It has the right amount of sassiness, sexiness, and a bit of romance.

Sterling is super-hot with a sexy accent and well he has 6 months to find himself a wife.

Now that is where the fun begins. I promise you will enjoy yourself and guarantee you are going to want to hop in your kindle too.

I wanted to be at that hotel on that very Saturday. 

Anyway like I said great easy read and you will not be disappointed.


I didn't want this book to end. I could read about Sterling all day.

Review: Unplugged by LK Collins


Buy Links-






Quinn Whitmore was unlike any other woman in the world.
She was it for me. That spark, that instant connection, became my sole purpose for breathing.
Her laugh would take over a room.
Her smile brought me to my knees.
And her body was…pure perfection.
When I met Quinn, she was fresh off a nasty breakup and had ruled out all men. She wanted to spend the week in the Rocky Mountains unplugged from the world, unwinding and focusing on herself.

So I decided to let it go.
But my mind wouldn’t.
Every thought suddenly became consumed with Quinn, and I knew I had to have her. So when she finally agreed to a week of just sex, no strings attached, I took the deal and ran. It would give me time to fuck my Quinn obsession out of my head.
But, man, was I wrong. A week wasn’t enough. A lifetime wouldn’t be enough.


The problem…Quinn was hiding a secret—a secret that would ruin my life. And ruin it she did. 


My 5 Star review:

OMG I loved this book!

Merritt and Quinn are so stinking adorable.

Merritt is a man that has sold his soul to the devil himself. He have up his dream to work for his father. He strives to prove himself over and over again.

Quinn is a very independent woman who just got out of a horrible relationship. Her ex is a complete douchbag times twenty.

Then one weekend unplugged turned both of their lives upside down.

I was glued to this book. This is a very hot steamy read. It is such an easy read.

Omg I couldn't believe Charles and Ari could do such a despicable thing like that. Who are they you ask?.... Well go and read this book and find put!

Lk Collins you did a fabulous job with this story. I am in love with Merritt and Quinn. They are my new favorite couple. Oh and now I want to go to Colorado and unplug.

P.s. I loved the ending..I could read about these two all day long.

EXCERPT

“Why’d you push me earlier?”
“It’s not important.”
But it was. She felt it in her chest. It was so important, and she needed him to say it again. She was salivating for the chance. She wanted to reassure him, and this time she felt it in her heart. She knew she wasn’t going anywhere. She wanted him to see it in her eyes, that she meant every single word.
She whispered now, “Ask me. Ask me again.”
His eyes met hers, narrowing slightly. He was looking into her, reading her.
She was letting him. There was no wall, no hesitation this time. She wanted him to know her, not just her body. All of her. A second passed. He was still searching in her. Another second. More. He waited a full thirty before asking, his voice so soft and tender, “What would you do if you found out another person cared about you? If you mattered to one more person?”
“Nothing.” She was trying to convey her feelings through her eyes. She wanted him to know so badly. “I wouldn’t run. I wouldn’t walk. I wouldn’t hide. I’d do nothing except stand and embrace it.”
His eyes darkened, an emotion passed in them, one that had her heart beating so fast again. “Yeah?” He let go of her hand, but touched the side of her face. He held her in the palm of his hand, and his thumb rubbed over her cheek. It was like he was smoothing away any lingering worries she might have. “What if I was that person?”
She leaned toward him, her eyes going from his lips back to his gaze. Both were pulling her in, making her yearn for more. “Then I’d say, I feel the same.” Her breath held in her throat. They were talking in code, but it was out now. She was telling him how she felt, and a second later, his lips were on hers.
This. She turned, wound her arms around his neck. This was everything.

My 5 Star review:

Harper Bentley you did an outstanding job!

This book is incredible and it needs to be a lifetime miniseries.

Mason and Birdie are so cute together. They have loved each other for years and now they are married.

Unfortunately both of their lives get turned upside down and I am not sure how I feel.

I mean really Mason! But then in the same breath I just want to hold him and tell him that I understand.

Birdie is my hero. This bad ass chick is a way better women than I am. Because I would of been shanking some people and asking questions later.

Beck and Sophia....holy hell. Now this couple was a whirlwind romance turned *ucked up.

My heart breaks for Beck and I just want to tell him to be selfish and leave his wife. Sophia is a *itch and I have no words for her. But then I feel like a horrible person for saying that.

This story will leave you an emotional mess. I mean I am laying here feeling like a selfish person. Like I am invested in these characters. The story is written so perfectly, it is as if they are real.

Then you get to the end and you are craving book two. Because right now I am freaking out a little and need book two.


Harper Bentley you introduced me to my first love Chase. I have read all of your books and I can tell you that this book touched my heart and soul. I really believe that I may have to go to counseling after this series. Freaking brilliant!!!!





Harper Bentley has taught high school English for 24 years. Although she’s managed to maintain her sanity regardless of her career choice, jumping into the world of publishing her own books goes to show that she might be closer to the ledge than was previously thought.

Review: Author Anonymous by E.K. Blair


Author Anonymous
By E.K. Blair


A TRUE STORY told through the voice of New York Times Bestselling author E.K. Blair.
*an intoxicatingly risqué stand-alone book

She’s an author.
She’s a mother.
She’s a wife.
She’s a fraud, a woman marked and bound by her own deceit.

Experience the astounding tale of how Anonymous battled through a year of scandals and betrayals, how her world fell from its axis with a single choice, and how she lost herself between reality and fantasy.

This is a stand-alone true story tangled in lust, heartbreak, and contrition.

My 5 Star Review:

What in the hell did I just read?....

This book was incredible! E.k. Blair you did an amazing job writing this book.

To Author anonymous,
Your story is breathtakingly sad and my heart broke for you with every word. I think you are incredibly brave for wanting to share your story.

I don't think you are a horrible person, hell no. You are real and shit happens. We as adults do things we are proud and we also do things we are not proud of.

There are many women out there who have been in your shoes before. Hell maybe even twice.

I am rambling! Sorry!

Again this book is amazing and super addicting. I could sit here and listen to all of this.

But I am torn. Is it wrong of me to have wanted a different ending? Or does this just seal the deal on “the grass isn’t always greener on the other side"?


Bravo EK Blair and Author anonymous

Blurb

The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office.
I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.
He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.
Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.
Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.
Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office.  He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.
Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent.
I was swindled out of ten grand.
The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.  In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place.
I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients.  But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind.
I never expected my body to react every time we argued.  Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.
The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships.  And my job was to help people save their marriages.
The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.
And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.
