Review

Somer is the overworked underdog in her family business, but she sucks it all up as she intends to be CEO one day. When there seems to be an imminent threat to tank the business, Somer is tasked with rooting out the problem and guiding the ship back into safe waters. But as she investigates, she begins to find out that things aren’t as they always seemed to appear. Even her mark/target, James/Hank is not as his reputation makes him out to be, and she finds herself with more than her family legacy on the line – her heart.

James/Hank is never happy when he’s mistaken for his boss, or has to impersonate him, but when a mix-up lands him a chance with the new neighbour, he’s determined to milk it for all that it’s worth. As he finds out more about Somer, what began as a way to blow off steam suddenly becomes too important to trivialize, and as her connections to his life come to light, he’s forced to make a choice. Can his choice give him the best of both worlds?

This was a good read. There were twists and turns that kept me reading, and Somer is an extremely likeable heroine. She was tough and sweet at the same time, determined to fight for what she believed in, while giving everyone else a fair chance. I liked the chemistry between her and Hank. Their banter was really witty.

I was glad to make the connection to Rogue Suit in this book, and look forward to Lana’s story sometime in the future.

I recommend this read. It’s a really good addition to the Cocky Hero Club series, with plenty heat, drama, suspense and sweetness.

Available on All Platforms

Maggie Emerson has known Colin Rhett since meeting him in her friend’s swimming pool her freshman year of college. Everyone knows the playboy with the movie star good looks. They also know he goes through women with barely a second thought. So what does she do when he appeals to the literature teacher in her? She gives him a book, of course. What about when he doesn’t stop at one? Maybe the Colin everyone thinks they know is really much deeper than anybody gives him credit for. If she looks, really looks at him, will she find the man of her dreams or that same playboy she thought he always was?

Colin is a successful attorney with a different woman every week, but what he really wants is the one woman he can’t have. All he has wanted since that fateful day in the swimming pool six years ago is to be her hero, but there was always a reason holding him back. Will this finally be his chance to prove to her that he can be the man she needs? If he has to read every damn book in the bookstore, he’s going to fight this time for that right.

Review

Colin has loved Maggie from afar from the moment he saw her five years ago. Losing himself in a string of women hasn’t eased the ache, and it’s getting harder and harder to stifle the voice in his head that’s encouraging him to seriously pursue her. But Maggie’s not like the other women he’s had, and though it’s not easy, he’s finding that being the man she deserves is better than anything.

Maggie’s not sure that Colin’s seemingly sudden interest is genuine. She tries to turn him off at every turn, but soon realises that Colin has quickly become the best part of her day. But between her shaky ability to trust and her past reappearing with no warning, their not-quite-a-relationship relationship may be over before it even starts.

This was a good read with a bit of a slow burn, with a good dose of humor and great female friendships. The pacing was perfect for the storyline, and I did enjoy it. I recommend it, too.

She thought she accidentally slept with her boss…
Then she met his twin brother.

Real talk: I slept with my boss. Back before he even was my boss. Back when I had no clue who he was.
Real talk: My boss is an arrogant jerk. I hate him. If we didn’t work so well together, I would have told him exactly where he could shove his pompous attitude a long time ago.
Turns out…my boss has a twin. Identical twin.
Now I know why he’s always acted like our one night together never happened. Why he acted like he’d never met me before when I started working for him.
It wasn’t him that night. It was his brother.
A brother who’s just as gorgeous as my boss and a hell of a lot nicer.
Real talk: I’m kind of…bothered that it wasn’t my boss that night.
But that’s before certain revelations about that night come to light.

Review

This book is full of fire & sass with heavy helpings of steam – and I loved it! Full of witty banter and innuendo-laden verbal volleys, this book sucked me in from page 1 and didn’t want to let me go.

“Thou shalt not dwelleth on the nighteth thou debased thyself with thy boss.”

Gretchen has always played it safe in matters of the heart. Her story was one I looked forward to because, although she’s happy about the lives her friends lead, she’s been closed off from situations and emotions that make her feel too deeply. She’s seen love around – most of her girlfriends are all cozied up with their own sweethearts – but she doesn’t believe it could happen for her. After all, the man she could have sworn she had a connection with, and who gave her the best night of her life doesn’t remember her, and in another cruel turn of events, he’s her boss. When some more details emerge about that fateful night, things around the office get very heated. Gretchen is catapulted out of her comfort zone, and straight into a scenario she never experienced before, but one that might just change her perspective on everything.

I absolutely loved Gretchen & Ryder’s frenemy vibe. It worked in a way I didn’t think it would, and created an eagerness in me to see how, when and where they’d take the next step in their relationship. Ryder did well, learning and strategizing his way into Gretchen’s heart. Every time he bared a little piece of his soul to her and she’d clam up, I wanted to shake her so bad!

“Somehow, I’m going to find a way to make you mine…”

I loved this book, and can’t recommend it enough. I loved Myles’ contribution in ensuring that Ryder and Gretchen got together then stayed together. Gretchen’s other support system – Quinn, Harper & Sloane – are the type of girlfriends a girl wishes to have. They were there for her, but also called her out when she was being bullheaded. The epilogue is… just wonderful!

I cannot wait for book 4. This series is amazing. Grab it as soon as you can!

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

“Why did you keep working here?”
My head snaps up, my confused gaze colliding with Ryder’s. “What?”
His expression is inscrutable, but it’s…intense. Whatever is going on behind his blue eyes must be a doozy. “If you thought you had slept with your boss, why didn’t you just quit?”
“You really want to talk about this now?” While sober?
I do confrontation best with some liquid courage.
He says nothing. Just watches me and waits.
I toss my pen onto the table. “Because if you didn’t remember it happening, then I could pretend like it never did, too. Clean slate.”
When his tongue slowly drags over his lower lip, I can’t tell if he likes that answer or not.
I roll my eyes with a huff. “Plus, not to add to your already inflated ego, this is the best market and ad firm in the area, despite your abhorrent people skills. It was a dream job for me.”
He taps his finger against the gleaming wood of the table. Tap, tap, tap. “You made it clear right from the start that you weren’t my biggest fan. Can I now assume that was because you were angry that I, from your perspective, didn’t remember us having sex?”
I have no answer.
What the hell am I supposed to say to that? I’m afraid the truth will make me sound like a naïve girl who became obsessed with a guy after only one night.
FYI, I didn’t.
Tap, tap, tap of his finger. “But being angry implies that you wanted me to remember.” A muscle pops in his jaw. “It was that good for you?”‘Kay, now I’m rattled.
Because now I know that I never slept with Ryder Colson. My long-time annoyance with him is unfounded, yet it feels as strong as ever and I don’t know what to do about it.
“We’re not talking about this,” I state firmly.
“Why not?”
Seriously? “Because now I know it wasn’t you. Which means that none of this is your business. We”—I gesture between us—“never slept together.”
Your brother and I did was the unspoken part of that sentence.
He hears it. And his nostrils flare.
“You’re right,” he admits gruffly. “It wasn’t me. Because if it had been me, I wouldn’t have forgotten a single detail. Like Myles obviously did.”
My face goes slack.
Did he just—? Did I hear him say—?
Ryder just took us into another realm. Another dimension. For the first time ever, he turned a sexual corner with me. One I thought we both silently agreed to never even approach, let alone maneuver around.
But he went there. He put it out there.
“Are you saying I’m not worth remembering?”
His face darkens, hardens. “Fuck, no. I’m saying anyone who doesn’t remember a night with you didn’t deserve to have you in the first place.”I just stare…
…mouth agape…
…and stare some more…
…and drool a little…
I shake my head. Like a dog. What the frig is happening right now?
Is Ryder saying that he wants a night with me? Or is this just some male chauvinist thing where he has to assert himself as the most virile man in the village because he senses another encroaching on his territory?
He does realize I’m not his territory, though, right?
I’m not his anything. Except employee.
“I’d say it’s for me to decide whether or not someone deserves me,” I eventually say, my voice oddly hoarse.
Tap, tap, tap. “You never answered my question.”
I know which one he’s talking about, but I still ask. “What question?”
Tap, tap, tap. “Was it good for you?”
I cross my arms over my chest, assessing him. Okay, fine. He wants to go there? Let’s do this. “We’re talking about your brother here. You really want to know?”
Tap…tap…tap. “He may not remember it, but you clearly do. It couldn’t have been the worst you’ve ever had.”
“What if I said it was the best?”
His face reflects a range of emotions in a matter of seconds that confuses the crap out of me. At first, his eyes crinkle in the corners, as if he’s pleased. Then they narrow to slits as banked fury emanates from them.
“Then I’d say that’s because I haven’t had you.”
My jaw unhinges like a snake’s.
He slowly nods, his eyes burning holes through me. “Yeah, duchess. I said that.”

Melanie grew up in a small town in rural Missouri. After marrying her husband, she decided she wanted to try coastal life because why not? A few months later, they moved to North Carolina where she discovered her passion for writing, and they never looked back. They are now enjoying life with their beautiful daughter in Savannah, GA and loving every minute with their little Georgia peach.

Melanie’s other passion is traveling and seeing the world. With anthropology degrees under their belts, she and her husband have made it their goal in life to see as many archaeological sites around the world as possible.

She has a horrible food addiction to pasta and candy (not together…ew). And she gets sad when her wine rack is empty.

At the end of the day, she is a true romantic at heart. She loves writing the cheesy and corny of romantic comedies, and the sassy and sexy of suspense. She aims to make her readers swoon, laugh out loud, maybe sweat a little, and above all, fall in love.

#ReviewBlitz: Return Billionaire to Sender by @Annika_Martin ~ #5stars

Return Billionaire to Sender by Annika Martin is now live!

I may be a shy, lowly letter carrier, but when my beloved apartment building is threatened by a mysterious and reclusive billionaire, I’m willing to push the envelope. I’m going to march right up to Malcolm Blackberg’s fortress of fierceness and deliver a cease-and-desist notice he can’t refuse.

Only, no sooner do I get inside his gilded doors than things go sideways–fast. I’m mistaken for Malcolm’s court-ordered emotional IQ coach, as if I’m acting out a wacky postal carrier cosplay.

They drag me in, a sacrificial lamb for the big bad. Make that big, smolderingly sexy bad.

So I make up a lesson involving a story about our building as he glares and fumes. Can he tell that I have no idea what I’m doing?

Before I know it I’m flying around the country, up close and personality testing the most devilishly exasperating man I’ve ever met.

He’s scary for sure…but the way he sometimes looks at me turns my knees to jelly and has me writing love letters to his gorgeous eyes, his mouthwatering smile, his impressive…package.

Our coaching sessions are getting hot-hot-hot, but I can’t let my guard down. If he ever finds out I’m a first-class fake, I’ll lose everything I’ve ever loved in this world…

Review

Noelle does a complete 180 on her personality to do battle against Malcolm Blackberg, the big bad monster who’s threatening her and her friends’ home. Normally shy, she becomes tenacious and determined, hoping he’ll see things her way. But a case of mistaken identity helps her more than she ever thought it would, but as with all secrets, it could harm their fledgling relationship when unexpected feelings take hold.

Malcolm likes his reputation as a villain. No one is more annoyed than he is that he needs emotional coaching. Yet, “Elle” captures his attention in a way that no other woman has ever done before. And he finds himself caring and feeling things he’s never felt. He’s also doing nice things… But is Elle too good to be true? Is he really less evil than he believes?

I really liked Noelle’s character. She may come off as naive, but she truly believed that she could help people.

I really enjoyed this book. I was rooting for Noelle & Malcolm so hard. The characters from 341 West 45th Street are a hilarious, sweet group that you can’t help but wish great things for.

I unreservedly recommend this fabulous rom-com.

#BlogTour: The Six Month Lease by @melanie_munton ~ #5stars

Title: The Six Month Lease (Southern Hearts Club, Book 2)
Author: Melanie Munton
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: August 18, 2020
Cover Designer: L.J. Anderson at Mayhem Cover Creations
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Never have I ever…moved in with a guy after dating him for only three weeks.
Just kidding. That’s exactly what I did.
And like most of you are probably thinking, it inevitably blew up in my face when we broke up two days after signing our lease.
Now, I’m stuck living with my ex. The same man who turned my life completely upside down in record time.
For. Six. Whole. Months.
It doesn’t matter how many times he flashes those abs at me after a shower, or how close his bedroom is to mine. I will resist him because he’s simply not the right guy for me.
But if I thought he’d done a number on me before, that’s nothing compared to what happens after I finally learn the secret he’s been keeping from me this entire time.

We touch down on the helipad near Patriot’s Point where we left from. The slab of concrete is on the edge of the now mostly empty parking lot, the park having closed over an hour ago. The sun has lowered in the sky, painting it a pink hue with notes of orange and gold.
West does some more talking into his radio headset while going through the process of shutting the aircraft down, flipping switches and pushing buttons. After I’ve had time to take stock of everything, I realize that I’m coming down from a small adrenaline rush. My chest is heaving, my heart still racing.
Now I really get West’s love for flying. It gives you a high like no other.
Helicopter heroin.
The blades slowly stop rotating until the whooping sound of their spinning eventually ceases. West removes his headphones and unstraps himself. Then he leans over and repeats the same process with me.
But once he has my straps unbuckled, he falls back into his own seat.
Slowly removes his aviators—
And spreads his legs.
It’s only then that I notice the tent between his legs.
“Does that happen every time you fly?” I ask, my gaze lasered in on his lap. “Or is that special for me?”
“It’s always for you,” he answers roughly. “That’s the fucking problem. Nothing does it for me anymore but you. The other night when you went out for drinks with the girls, my hand could barely get the job done, even though it was your naked body I pictured in my head the entire time. It’s like nothing will satisfy except the real you.”
I tsk my tongue. “Poor baby. What do you recommend for the pain?”
He unbuckles his belt, lowers his zipper. “I just gave you a ride.” He reaches inside his briefs, palming his erection. “Now, it’s your turn to give me a nice…long…ride.”
I lick my lips unconsciously, feeling my nipples pucker underneath my breezy, linen dress. “These windows aren’t exactly tinted.”
“No one’s around,” he growls, his face reddening with burning lust. “Plus, the cockpit is facing those trees. No one can see us at this angle.”
My pulse jumps at the word cock.
Wriggling his hips, he shoves his shorts and briefs down past his manhood, freeing his rod until it’s rising straight up in the air. When he wraps his fist around the base, I flashback to how he looked handling the control stick. Gripping it so tight, his fingers absently stroking it when he was letting the aircraft coast.
My God, I never thought helicopters could be so sexual.
I’ll never be able to look at any kind of control stick the same way again.
His eyes lower to my chest. “Come sit on your throne, princess.”

Review

Loved it!

Melanie Munton delivered a fun & wonderful tale of second chances, acceptance, self-discovery, friendship & love. West & Harper were a couple I began rooting for from the first few pages, and I was so happy with their HEA. I loved their rivalry and enjoyed the pranks a lot!

I really liked West. He was a good friend and partner. He pushed Harper to step outside her mother’s expectations and live for herself. I was sold on him from their first interaction. Harper herself needed to work through some things, but eventually, she became the woman that West and her best friends knew she could be.

I’m loving this group of women so much! I can’t wait for book 3!

Trixie Donovan had been born stupid.

Okay, not so much intellectually inept as born with a stupid name. Named after her flighty mother’s favorite pooch, Trixie had spent most of her life fending off comments of her canine similarities from her siblings.

They thought they were hilarious, and she thought . . .

Well, there was a reason she’d moved to the opposite side of the globe and it wasn’t because she was close with her family.

She’d left California for bigger and better things then had kept on moving, putting her nursing skills to use to help people all over the world. But living without reliable electricity or clean water or hell, the internet had grown old.

Now she was back. She’d finally figured out what Netflix was, though she was still iffy on Tinder, and she’d become her half-sister Heather’s new pet project.

Isn’t that what happily married people did? Tried to marry off everyone around them because they were so sickeningly content that they couldn’t stand the thought of someone they knew not being in the same position.

So anyway, Heather pestered and Trix gave in, agreeing to a single blind date.

But then that blind date turned out to be Jet.

Jet, the doctor she’d worked with halfway around the world. The man she’d slept with and then had fallen desperately in love with. The one who, in cliché naïve female fashion, had decimated her heart. And the one who transformed an unwanted, but tolerable night out into the blind date from hell.

Because apparently Jet had decided his biggest regret was letting her go.

Blurb:
I was only trying to help a friend. I swear. I was legit asking for a friend who was finally ready to date again.

I knew what she wanted in a man — smart, funny, ambitious, well-read (no, the sports section doesn’t count), and plays a wicked game of badminton.

So I did what any good friend would do. Posted it for her. It seemed like a good idea at the time — I’d weed through the candidates, and bring her my top picks.

But then he responded.

Is it wrong to date the guy I screened for my bestie? Not asking for a friend.

Excerpt:
Betty Boop: I’m not offended. I feel like if you were trying to pick up a woman for BDSM play, you’d be on a different app.

Dax Powers: Whew. Thank you. Which also reminds me that I need to switch over to my Paddle Me Please app and keep up the convo there with Ms. Bend Me Over the Chair.

Betty Boop: No worries. I’ll be on Spank Me Tonight, so I guess we’ll miss each other.

Dax Powers: Good luck. I hear all the pongers hang out on Spank Me Tonight.

Betty Boop: Oh damn, you are good!

Dax Powers: Thank you. I am indeed quite good. *inserts devil emoticon*

Betty Boop: And a little cocky too?

Dax Powers: Just a little. But you know what it’s like when you’re champion of a nerd sport, Miss Badminton Champion.

Betty Boop: Hey, you’re assuming I’m a nerd.

Dax Powers: Am I wrong, Miss Badminton Champion? *smirks*

I gulp, nearly dropping my phone in the drain as I cross the street. Shitballs on fire. How do I reply to this? I glance around as if I can locate the answer on the sidewalk.

Am I Peyton? Or me? Do I remind him I’m asking for a friend? It was in the profile though. The description closed with “asking for a friend,” for Pete’s sake.

It must be obvious.

Okay, fine, maybe he thinks I meant it to be tongue-in-cheek.

Someone could certainly read it as tongue-in-cheek.

Because the entire saying is tongue-in-cheek, and no one is ever asking for a friend—they’re asking for themselves.

Ugh.

So I was only honest on a technicality.

My stomach swoops, and a teeny bit of guilt weaves through me.

Who am I kidding? This is a massive, crushing tsunami of guilt.

Ping-Pong Lover Mad Flosser Dax Powers is a darling. Chatting with him is better than drinking a vanilla latte.

And I can’t lie. I won’t lie to this potential suitor.

As I walk along the park, making my way toward Little Friends, I return to the chat, drawing a deep breath.

Sera used to believe in happily ever afters.

Well, she still believed in them. Just not for her.

For Seraphina Delgado, finding a man who loved her for who she was inside, rather than simply appreciating her outward appearance, had proved to be impossible.

She wasn’t trying to be cocky—cock, ha—but she was beautiful. So beautiful, in fact, that she’d spent her childhood and tween years modeling and shooting commercials and . . . well, only being appreciated for the way she looked.

And that was more curse than advantage because looks faded. People aged, wrinkles formed, boobs sagged . . .

Anyway, none of that mattered because no man ever saw who she truly was on the inside.

Until Tate.

He was more interested in software than her cup size and had hired her to help him find a house. He didn’t care about her looks or her boobs, only her abilities as a real estate agent.

But then he showed up in her office with a crazy proposition. One so crazy, it almost made sense.

He wanted them to get married.

And Sera thought she just might agree.

Review

A fairly quick read, Sera & Tate’s story is sweet.

For Sera, she’s been under too much pressure – to be good, be beautiful, be perfect – that she’s more than a little disenchanted with life. On top of all this, the man she’s been hoping to notice her doesn’t even seem to realise that she’s alive.

Tate has been under Sera’s spell from the first moment he met her, but his shy nature has never allowed him to be honest about his feelings. When the opportunity presents itself, he jumps at the chance to make Sera see him.

Tate’s awkward/nerdy vibe gave the book extra adorableness! He and Sera seemed to be total opposites, yet he understood her.

I also love the Book/Wine Club. They’re fierce and fully protect their own. I can’t wait for more!

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.
