Book Review - The Wedding Date Bargain by Mira Lyn Kelly

ABOUT THE BOOK

When Sarah Cole finds herself in Chicago with two months to kill before her New York promotion goes through, she decides it’s time to take care of a few things—like the inconvenient issue of her virginity. Sarah knows the right guy for the job too: Max, the notorious lady’s man she’s been crushing on since college.
Max Brandt is all for a fling, just not with Sarah. She’s way too good for him. He walked away from her once, but it wasn’t easy.
Things are different now, and the plan is so simple. There’s no way either of them would do something as silly as fall in love…



REVIEW


Myra Lynn Kelly is one of those authors that if one of her books is on my TBR list I know I can pick-up and will easily get sucked into.  The Wedding Date Bargain was no exception.  I totally fell for Sarah and Max as a couple and the whole group of friends and really didn't want the book to end.  This was definitely one of those times where I wished this was the second book in an established ten book series, but who am I kidding, I'd be through that in two weeks easily and still have the end of series blues times ten.  My point is that the story is great but the characters are amazing and I highly recommend this book.  I actually did immediately text my friend and tell her she needed to read the first one and then immediately move on to this one, which I typically do not do.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Mira Lyn Kelly grew up in the Chicago area and earned her degree in Fine Arts from Loyola University. She met the love of her life while studying abroad in Rome, Italy, only to discover he'd been living right around the corner from her for the previous two years. Having spent her twenties working and playing in the Windy City, she's now settled with her husband in rural Minnesota where their four beautiful children provide an excess of action, adventure, and entertainment. 

With writing as her passion and inspiration striking at the darnedest times, Mira can always be found with a notebook at the ready. (More than once she's been caught by the neighbors, covered in grass clippings, scribbling away atop the compost container!) 

When she isn't reading, writing, or running to keep up with the kids, she loves watching movies, blabbing with the girls, and cooking with her husband and friends.

Blog Tour/Review - I Knew You Were Trouble by Lauren Layne


A feisty beauty must choose between winning back Mr. Right 
or giving in to Mr. Wrong.


I KNEW YOU WERE TROUBLE
Oxford Series #4
Lauren Layne
Releasing June 13, 2017
Loveswept


New York City’s hottest bachelors are stirring up trouble in this fun, flirty Oxford Novel, as a love triangle forces a feisty beauty to choose between winning back Mr. Right or giving in to Mr. Wrong.

Taylor Carr has it all—a sleek job in advertising, a stunning Manhattan apartment, and the perfect man to share it with: Bradley Calloway. Even after Bradley dumps her for a co-worker on move-in day, Taylor isn’t worried. She’ll get her man eventually. In the meantime, she needs a new roommate. Enter Nick Ballantine, career bartender, freelance writer—and longtime pain in Taylor’s ass. Sexy in a permanent five-o’clock-shadow kind of way, Nick knows how to push Taylor’s buttons, as if he could see right through to the real her.

Nick’s always trying to fix people, and nobody could use a good fixing more than Taylor. Sure, she’s gorgeous, with mesmerizing silver eyes, but it’s her vulnerability that kills him. Now that they’re shacking up together, the chemistry is out of control. Soon they’re putting every part of their two-bedroom apartment to good use. Then Taylor’s ex comes crawling back to her, and Nick figures she’ll jump at the chance to go back to her old life—unless he fights for the best thing that ever happened to him.



AVAILABLE NOW!


Book Review

This is another outstanding book by Lauren Layne.  The Oxford series has been full of wonderful strong and spunky women, this story is no exception.  The sexual tension between Taylor and Nick has been an undercurrent even in earlier books but it is off the charts in this story and is very well written.  This is not a typical hate-turns-to-love story and the characters are well developed and compelling.  This is probably one of my favorite books so far by Layne, if not my favorite, and highly recommend to anyone who loves smart romance books.




Lauren Layne is the New York Times bestselling author of over a dozen romantic comedies.

A former e-commerce and web marketing manager from Seattle, Lauren relocated to New York City in 2011 to pursue a full-time writing career.

She lives in midtown Manhattan with her high-school sweetheart, where she writes smart romantic comedies with just enough sexy-times to make your mother blush. In LL's ideal world, every stiletto-wearing, Kate Spade wielding woman would carry a Kindle stocked with Lauren Layne books.

Book Review - Black Tie Optional by Ann Marie Walker

ABOUT THE BOOK


The Proposal meets Two Weeks Notice in Ann Marie Walker's new standalone romantic comedy, Black Tie Optional, which New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst calls, "a fun, sexy romp that will keep every reader entertained!"
Everything about Coleman Grant III oozes power and sex. And not the perfunctory kind either, but the sheet clawing, heart stopping, gasping for air after you’ve screamed so loud you can’t breathe kind. From his dark wavy hair that stands in an artfully rumpled mess, to the blue eyes that sear your skin, to his full, sensual lips - on the surface he’s pure perfection.
Too bad he's an asshole. An arrogant, uptight corporate raider hell bent on destroying the environment one species at a time.
Everything about Olivia Ramsey screams hippie humanitarian. From her blond hair tied in a sloppy bun, to her faded jeans with the Bonnaroo patch sewn on the thigh, to her combat boots still splattered with mud from the previous day’s site visit.
So it makes perfect sense that they would get married. In Vegas. Stone-cold sober.
Cole needs a wife. Olivia needs to save an endangered species. But what starts as a marriage of convenience soon turns into a battle of wills and sexual tension. Love is a game, and Olivia and Cole are ready to win.

REVIEW

Opposites attract is definitely one of my favorite romance tropes.  Olivia and Cole both start out a bit cardboard as far as characters go, almost too much of a caricature of the type they are supposed to be, but as the story progresses the characters really develop and the story becomes more and more realistic.  This is the first book of Walker's that I have read and I find that I really enjoy her style and the way she uses humor in her books, so I do look forward to reading more stories by her.

Book Review - Virgin for the Prince by J.S. Scott

ABOUT THE BOOK


They’re at it again! 

J.S. Scott, Ruth Cardello, and Melody Anne come together for another royal novella trilogy. This is the second novella of a three novella set. Check the dates below for release dates on the first and third novella.

Escape with three new princes as only these NYT’s bestselling authors could write them.


Virgin for the Trillionaire: Ruth Cardello (April 25, 2017)

Virgin for the Prince: J.S. Scott (June 6, 2017)

Virgin to Conquer: Melody Anne (July 3, 2017)



Take a wild ride with Virgin for a Prince by J.S. Scott! 


***************************


Diana:


Who ever said that money fixes everything? Well, I can tell you firsthand that they were dead wrong. I was born an only child to one of the wealthiest families in America, and all I've ever felt was loneliness and a sense that I may have been adopted. I don't fit in. I never have. When all my mother wanted was for me to marry into another prestigious family, I wanted an education and to just be...normal. It's not that I don't appreciate having a roof over my head and everything my heart desires. Problem is, what I really want is something money can't buy. I want to be loved for who I am and not how much money my father acquired before his death. 


At the age of twenty-four, I'm still a virgin, and a freak among my peers because of my fascination with all things history and literature, my bad hair, my bizarre eyes, and my complete lack of style. When my mother wants to send me away to a house party on a little-known island nation, I jump at the opportunity. Hardly anybody from the outside gets invited to Rubare Virgina, and it's rich in history. Sure, I realize that she's aiming high and trying to marry me off to some pompous, obscenely wealthy prince, but I've decided I'd resolve that problem at the masquerade ball at the beginning of my stay on the island. 


I'd lose my virginity to the first guy who would have me, making myself ineligible to be any royal's wife on Rubare Virgina. Then I could just enjoy my stay in my own nerdy sort of way. Pretty simple. Until it becomes...complicated. 


Prince Niccolino is nothing like I thought he would be. He's real. He's honest. And he's hotter than Florida in July. He's everything a woman could ever want or need, and he's loyal to those he cares about and his country. But there's just one tiny problem: I'm no longer the virgin he needs to marry. I'd forfeited my opportunity for more with Prince Nic when I'd given away my virginity at the masquerade ball to a complete stranger. Could it be that I've finally found my Prince and my heart's desire only to have it torn away because of my one stupid indiscretion?? 


Like the first novella trilogy, Taken by a Trillionaire, these novellas are escapism fantasy. If you are looking for a historically accurate representation of a monarchy or a serious depiction of how royals maintain their bloodlines, neither trilogies are for you. If you love larger than life characters and fun storylines that take you to exotic places with sexy alpha men, then welcome to our imaginary kingdoms. The men are insanely rich, the traditions are potentially deadly, and the sex will leave you craving a night on this dark isle.

REVIEW

I am continuing to love the island of Rubare Virgina and was happy to be re-introduced to the author J.S. Scott through this series.  I had previous read her Vampire Coalition series years ago and had enjoyed that but had not kept up with her more recent work.  Virgin for the Prince was an easy and quick fairytale romance.  Due to the nature of being a novella, the story moved quickly and didn't have a lot of time for development, but the characters were still written well enough to connect to them and understand them.  I'm already looking up some of J.S. Scott's other books while I wait for the last book in this trilogy.

Book Review - It Had to be You by Melissa Kate

ABOUT THE BOOK


Emma Wyatt has had enough of her ex-best friend and his ladykiller ways. The sweet boy from her youth had been replaced with a serial womaniser.
Oliver didn't intend to be coupled with Emma, but when it came to Emma Wyatt, he felt the need to be a knight in shining armor.
Now, the whole town knows and Emma is livid. She wants to wring his neck.
A heated argument incites a fiery moment of passion, and the pair find themselves fighting an unlikely attraction they never saw coming.
But a dreadful secret could tear them apart forever.

REVIEW

This is a refreshing romantic comedy.  The story seems like a simple hate turns to love story, but there are additional complicated layers in the story and the characters that make the entire book feel more substantial yet still a quick and easy read.  Emma and Ollie are strong characters and what I love about Ollie is that he is a strong alpha male without being dominating.  The dynamic between the two feels real and helps the overall flow of the book.  I look forward to reading more from the author.

Book Review - Until You (Bachelor Brotherhood) by Denise Grover Swank

ABOUT THE BOOK

Never settle down. Ever.

Workaholic Lanie Rogers lives a completely nomadic lifestyle. Her job keeps her on the move, and relationships are a complication she doesn't need. That is, until she meets Mr. Tall, Dark, and Hotness at a pre-wedding party. Complicated? Maybe. But lately, Lanie's life has been missing a little something---and sexy playboy Tyler Norris offers something she definitely can't refuse.

Tyler has always been a little too popular with women for his own good. Ever since he and his buddies vowed to remain bachelors, Tyler figured he was safe from temptation. Lanie and her gorgeous brown eyes are about to prove him so, so wrong. With one kiss, the heat is intense. After one night, it's pure combustion. It was supposed to be a no-strings fling---until these two commitment-phobes each discover the one undeniable exception to their rule.




REVIEW

Tyler and Lanie are hot and have chemistry off the charts from the beginning.  This is more than just a steamy romance though.  Their chemistry is obviously there in bed, but their real chemistry comes in the friendship department.  Swank is able to write these characters realistically in a way that makes the way they just understand and "get" each other easily be understood.  Something else I love about the writing in this story is how the plot could feel contrived at times but still just feels like a misunderstanding.  Finally, what makes this story great and keeps bringing me back to all of Denise Grover Swank books, is the humor.  This is a Rom-Com to the core and a great summer read to sit back and relax and enjoy.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in the area until she was nineteen. Then she became a nomadic gypsy, living in five cities, four states and ten houses over the course of ten years before she moved back to her roots. She speaks English and smattering of Spanish and Chinese, which she learned through an intensive Nick Jr. immersion period. Her hobbies include witty (in her own mind) Facebook comments and dancing in her kitchen with her children. (Quite badly if you believe her offspring.) Hidden talents include the gift of justification and the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within two minutes. Her lack of the sense of smell allows her to perform many unspeakable tasks. She has six children and hasn't lost her sanity. Or so she leads you to believe.

Book Review - The Last in Love by Terri Osburn

ABOUT THE BOOK


Abby Williams lost her husband—and the future she envisioned—to a roadside bomb in a foreign land, so a kitchen fire is no big deal. When the local firemen show up to put out the blaze, the army widow finds herself attracted to one hot volunteer firefighter…until she realizes it’s Justin Donovan, a man five years her junior.
Justin has long carried a torch for Abby. But after she got married ten years ago, he put her out of his mind, left Ardent Springs for Chicago, and got a job as a real estate developer. Now he’s back—for reasons he’d rather not share—and he wants to prove to Abby that age is nothing but a number. Will Abby’s reluctance and Justin’s secrets extinguish any attempts at romance? Or will the sparks between them ignite a second chance at love?

REVIEW


I have loved the Ardent Springs book and the characters have been so much fun to get to know.  Abby hasn't always been the easiest to like but definitely easy to sympathise with up to this point, and I liked that getting to know her in her own story wasn't about the grief for her lost husband but instead about moving on in her life.  Another theme that Osburn often has in her books that is present throughout is that while this is certainly a love story about Abby and Justin, it is also a story about how Abby moves on with her life in general and finds her own direction.  The entire story is uplifting and hopeful while still humorous and romantic along the way.  This could be read as a standalone, but would probably be better read after the other books in the series, but I recommend them all to anyone who is looking for books about hope and strong women who overcome obstacles to find happiness for themselves.

Book Review - Called Out by Jen Doyle

ABOUT THE BOOK


Jen Doyle is back with another hot and heartfelt home run of a contemporary romance. Fans of Jill Shalvis should prepare to swoon over Jack and Lola's HEA. 
Jack "Ox" Oxford is used to being alone. Granted, when you screw over your friends, being alone isn't always a choice. Playing for the Chicago Watchmen is a last-ditch effort to save his career…and right some of his past wrongs. He's not expecting a warm reception, but he's also not expecting a flat tire to change everything. 
Recovering control freak, single mom and semiprofessional chaos wrangler Lola Deacon McIntire doesn't need an arrogant ballplayer to swoop in and save her from anything, much less her flat tire. And she definitely doesn't need her body to betray her and decide this is the guy to wake up her rusty libido. She isn't about to upset her sons' lives for any man—much less one who so clearly doesn't think he's dad material. 
Jack never thought he'd find someone who wanted to build a life with him, but the more time he spends with Lola and her boys, the more it starts to feel permanent. Even tough-as-nails Lola concedes there just might be a future here—the big, beautiful, messy future neither of them was looking for—but only if Jack will accept he deserves it. 



REVIEW

I love Jen Doyle.  I am sure I said that last time I reviewed one of her books, but I really can't say that enough.  This story was such a quick read, and not due to a lack of substance.  The story is very well written and the character development is very well done as well.  The supporting characters are all great additions to the story and having read the previous books in the series, it was nice seeing them again, but certainly not necessary to have read the books to understand what is going on.  I can't imagine reading this book and NOT wanting to go back and read Nate's story, because while Jack and Lola were the stars of this story, Nate really comes through as the true hero and another character with an impressive amount of depth considering his supporting role.  I recommend this to anyone who likes a good story and enjoys some humor and romance mixed in.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!

Book Review - In the Heir by Ruth Cardello (Free on Amazon Unlimited!)

ABOUT THE BOOK


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Ruth Cardello returns with an irresistible series about sexy billionaires and the strong-willed women who tame them.
Brett Westerly is his father’s golden child, but it’s come at a cost. As head of the family corporation, he throws himself into his work—hiding in his office is easier than confronting the reality of his broken family.
After a bitter divorce that split the family and divided loyalties, the wealthy Westerly matriarch offers an early inheritance to any grandchild who marries and invites the entire family to the wedding. Brett’s brother Spencer rashly gets engaged, and Brett knows it’s his duty to intervene. But he never imagined the unwelcome desire Spencer’s fiery fiancée would spark in him. Now the man who’s used to getting everything he could want has met the one woman he can’t have.
Ever since she was a girl, Alisha Coventry considered Spencer and his sister Rachelle the family she didn’t have. When Spencer asks for her help, Alisha has no problem becoming his fake fiancée—until she meets Spencer’s sexy older brother Brett. The chemistry between them is undeniable—forbidden—but as their relationship deepens, Brett is determined to have her.
Alisha only wanted to help the family make amends. Now she’s falling for the wrong Westerly.

REVIEW

This is the first book in a new series for Ruth Cardello.  The family has two parts that are estranged from each other through a bitter divorce when the children were small.  Some long buried secrets are discovered and the gap only widens.  In the middle of all of this, Brett finds himself attracted to his brother Brett's fiancée Alisha.  Alisha would do anything for Brett but finds herself attracted to Spencer as well.  

Alishia truly brings out the best in Spencer and his character growth really shown throughout the book.  Alisha also is able to grow and become more independent and learn more about herself as she is challenged from her normal comfort zone through the events in the book.

I look forward to reading more about the family and how the rest of the members deal with the eccentric matriarch and her meddling.

I'm biding my time until I can get the hell out of here.

REVIEW


This is a great sequel to Sex Machine but can easily be read as a stand-alone.  Garrett and Lauren have chemistry from the start and I love the fact the book picks up after they've already had sex.  As always, Marie finds a way to put a new and interesting twist on what seems like a stale story from the outside.  For such a sexy book, the story and characters are still well developed and the plot moves quickly.  I recommend anyone looking for a steamy summer read.

Book Review - Wrong Turn, Right Direction by Elle Casey (Free on Kindle Unlimited)

ABOUT THE BOOK


Tamika Cleary takes a wrong turn up a one-way street—and straight into Thibault Delacroix’s leg as he steps into the road. But Mika’s in a hurry, and she certainly doesn’t have time for a guy who can’t even look both ways before crossing, even if he does have a cute face, a body to die for, and the darkest, thickest eyelashes she’s ever seen.
Unfortunately for Mika, fate has other ideas. When she’s threatened by her employer, a Russian mafia boss known as “The Thief”, she’s forced to accept Thibault’s help. As the co-owner of the Bourbon Street Boys security firm, he believes he can keep her safe. But Mika has a whole load of trust issues—and the pushier Thibault is about helping, the more stubbornly she tries to resist.
Mika may have taken a wrong turn the day they met, but will she finally let someone steer her in the right direction?

REVIEW

Wrong Turn, Righ Direction is a light hearted Romantic Comedy.  At least as light hearted as a "I didn't know I was pregnant" moment while being chased by the Russian Mob can be.  Casey pulls the seemingly absurd plot into something believable.  The characters are well developed and each have their own unique voice.  While this book is part of the Bourbon Street series, it could easily be read as a stand-alone as the other characters are introduced organically and fit into this story effortlessly.

Book Review - Murphy's Law by Lori Foster

ABOUT THE BOOK


ANYTHING THAT CAN GO WRONG. . .Nothing is going to go wrong. Ashley Miles has worked too hard for her independence to let some Bentley-driving hunk named Quinton Murphy interfere with her plans—or her freedom. Yes, the chemistry is phenomenal. Kind of scary, actually. But that’s it. NO emotional commitments.

. . .WILL

But he’s SO wonderful—a woman could fall in love . . . How did that happen? That wasn’t part of the plan! But can she trust him? Really trust him? The man is just so mysterious. There’s only one solution: put it all on the line and see what Quinton does when she tells him how she feels. And hope everything that can go wrong. . .won’t. . .



REVIEW


Our heroine, Ashley has a plan to make something of herself and no-one is going to stop her from escaping the poverty of her past.  Unfortunately, Quinton didn’t get that memo and pursues her like he has no other.   Ashley doesn’t understand why her sarcastic wit and aloofness isn’t driving Quinton away but actually acts as a catalyst to bring them together.  When Ashley finds herself in the crosshairs of a revenge plot, Quinton will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.   Sparks and bomb fragments fly in Murphy’s Law by Lori Foster.


OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
