Book Review - Finn (Blue-Collar Billionaires #2) by M. Malone

ABOUT THE BOOK




Finn Marshall survived several tours in Afghanistan before the billionaire father he barely remembers changed everything. Now he has it all: money, cars and most importantly: power.

Power to track down the woman who left him for a richer man.

Marissa Blake dragged herself out of poverty one client at a time, so she's thrilled when her company, Maid-4-U, gets a huge contract for a luxury penthouse. Until she sees who owns it.

Now to save her struggling business, Finn demands everything she once promised him. Money can't buy him happiness but it can buy him one thing:

REVENGE!
**Excerpt**

My patience finally snaps. After working for the past two hours straight, my back is screaming and my feet hurt. I want to smack that grin right off his face, contract be damned. 

"You know what, no. You are paying me to clean. You want to trash your own apartment just to get back at me, real mature by the way, that's fine. You want to make me pick up your skanky girlfriend&…

ABOUT THE BOOK

Sarah Baxter, a brilliant young doctor still struggling with her stifled upbringing, has recently moved from Chicago to sleepy Amesport to escape her past, hoping to find peace. When Sarah is assigned to Dante’s case, there’s an instant heat between them. They couldn’t possibly be more different, yet their igniting passion is impossible to ignore. As new feelings awaken within Sarah, her haunted past returns, threatening her once again. But can Dante overcome his grief and discover the secrets Sarah is hiding in time to protect and rescue her?

ABOUT THE BOOK


There’s a budding romance on Butler Mountain, but in the hornets’ nest known as the Abbott family, keeping a secret is no easy feat…

Colton Abbott and Lucy Mulvaney have a secret. Colton’s nosy siblings have begun to put the pieces together, but it’s not like Lucy to keep things from those closest to her—especially her best friend, Cameron, who recently moved to Vermont to live with her true love, Will. But Lucy isn’t about to tell Cam she’s having a fling…with Will’s brother.

Flitting between New York and Vermont is exhausting, so Lucy is looking forward to a long weekend with Colton at the Abbott family lake house in Burlington. Too bad Will and Cameron have the same idea, and once Colton and Lucy are caught red-handed (and red-faced), will their clandestine romance lose its appeal or will their secret beginnings be the start of something lasting?

REVIEW


Ever since I met Colton Abbott in the first book of this series, I was more than a little bit curious about the man w…

ABOUT THE BOOK

Beatrice Summerhill loves risk. She's not afraid to go for what she wants, regardless of anything or anyone standing in her way.

Enter Luca Fiorelli, the "Italian Stallion" racecar driver.

Normally, Bea would have dismissed the preening peacock without a thought, but Luca somehow manages to get under her skin--and her covers. She can't resist him, and she knows he's not good for her, so she shuts him out.

Until he dangles the most tempting carrot in front of her: an irresistible business venture that will take her career to the next level and make her a female Donald Trump. Unfortunately, Luca not only holds the key, but he's taken it for ransom. All Bea needs to do is give a little and close the deal... If she's willing to risk everything--including her heart.

REVIEW

This book, the last in the Summerhill series, wraps up the two stories I’ve been waiting to read through the entire series.  First are Bea and Luca’s, which has been brewing fr…

Book Review – Strange Bedpersons by Jennifer Crusie

ABOUT THE BOOK


Tess Newhart knows her ex-boyfriend Nick Jamieson isn't the right guy for her. He's caviar and champagne; she's take-out Chinese pot stickers. He's an uptight Republican lawyer; she was raised in a commune. He wants to get ahead in business; she just wants…him. But there's no way Tess will play second fiddle to his job.

Yet somehow she finds herself agreeing to play his fiancée on a weekend business trip that could make or break Nick's career. And while he's trying to convince Tess that he needs her in his respectable world, Tess is doing her best to keep her opinions to herself and her hands off Nick.

REVIEW



I love, love, love Jennifer Crusie’s books. She has a knack for writing flawed, quirky, yet fun characters who find themselves in hilarious situations, but the reader can’t help but love anyway. Tess could easily be one of those characters that is just too flaky to relate to, and Nick could easily be an egotistical jerk that the reader can…

ABOUT THE BOOK

When it comes to caring for the furry residents of St. Helena, California, groomer and pet rescuer Shay Michaels can handle anything. Humans are another story, though—especially Deputy Jonah Baudouin. He’s the town’s resident superhero: upright, uptight, and jaw-droppingly gorgeous, even when he’s investigating complaints about Shay’s beloved foster animals. And that spells danger for Shay, a free spirit who can’t risk trusting the wrong person again.
Jonah and Shay have been circling each other ever since she came to town, and he’s running out of reasons to not kiss her senseless. But this deputy is a straight shooter with his eye on the sheriff’s badge. He can’t afford to get involved with Shay, a chaos magnet with luscious curves who’s liable to turn his career—and his life—upside down. He enforces laws. She breaks them—repeatedly. Keeping her out of trouble is becoming a full-time job…and it’s one he hopes is never going to end.
