Book Review - Sex God by Marie Force

ABOUT THE BOOK


A sizzling hot stand-alone contemporary romance!

I inherited a life I never intended to live.
I've upheld my responsibilities admirably.
And I’ve taken care of my own needs privately...
I'm biding my time until I can get the hell out of here.
But I didn’t count on having unfinished business
With one of my very best friends…

When a man has a certain “reputation" to uphold,
There can be no unhappy customers left behind.
Lauren is a loose end that won’t be tied up no matter how hard I try.
And I try hard. Really, really… hard. 


Sex God is the much-anticipated follow-up to Sex Machine


-----------------


SEX MACHINE is currently on sale for .99 cents! 





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.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy

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.

Book Review - Until Tomorrow by Nancy Naigle (Free on Amazon Unlimited)

ABOUT THE BOOK


After yet another heartbreak, Flynn Crane is pretty much done with dating. She’s not even sure she can keep her grandparents’ struggling bed-and-breakfast afloat. But just as she’s about to give up on both her business and her dream of settling down in Boot Creek, Ford Morton walks back into her life.
Even from thousands of miles away, Ford never forgot the spark that ignited when he first met Flynn. Now a monthlong artists’ residency near Boot Creek gives him the perfect opportunity to find out just how intense the fire between them can get.
Neither of them expected just how that little spark would turn into heated passion. With Ford’s return to Alaska looming near, Flynn is torn between her life in Boot Creek and a chance to move to the wilderness for love. Can Ford and Flynn find a way to share tomorrow together—before they both lose their hearts in Boot Creek?



REVIEW

This is a nice cute rom-com that is the third book in the series.  One of the things I have always liked about Nancy Naigles writing is that she tells real stories about real people who you be me or someone I know.  What I loved about this story is that not only are Flynn and Ford real people, but the end is somehwat open ended (but it still has a satisfying ending) to leave me to imagine how their lives progress... at least until another book in the series comes out.  This is a nice summer read that isn't light in substance but light enough to keep your attention through the end.

Book Review - Making it Right (A Most Likely To Novel) by Catherine Bybee - Free on Amazon Unlimited

ABOUT THE BOOK


In the final book in bestselling author Catherine Bybee’s Most Likely To trilogy, River Bend’s rebel follows in her father’s footsteps to become sheriff. But it might be time to forge her own path…
Some kids inherit a family business; Jo Ward inherited a badge. Once voted Most Likely to End Up in Jail, the town wild child has become sheriff—hell-bent on uncovering the truth about her father’s mysterious death. Life is quiet in rustic River Bend, but Jo longs for something beyond her small hometown and the painful memories it holds. All that keeps her sane is the support of her best friends, Melanie and Zoe.
But when Jo signs up for an expert law enforcement training seminar, she meets Gill Clausen, whose haunting eyes and dangerously sexy vibe just may challenge her single-minded focus. Commitment-phobic Jo can’t deny her attraction to the arrogant federal agent, and when odd things start happening around River Bend and danger surrounds her, she realizes she’ll need his help to discover who’s out to remove her from River Bend…permanently.
As Jo and Gill work together, it’s clear they make a great team. But can Jo loosen her grip on the past enough to let love in and reach for the future?



REVIEW

Another great book by Catherine Bybee.  I fell in love with River Bend last year when I first ready Doing It Over, and honestly Jo always seemed the least interesting of the gang.  Boy was I wrong.  As it turns out Jo is one of the more interesting characters in these books and her story was a great read.  The contract between Jo's professional life and her personal interactions with her friends and especially Gill.  Both Jo and Gill are interesting characters and well developed, but Jo is definitely the more complex one.  If this is the last of the Most Likely books I'll be sad to see these characters go but have very much enjoyed reading about them this past year.

The Playboy Bachelor (The Bachelors of Arizona) by Rachel Van Dyken

ABOUT THE BOOK

She's no Sleeping Beauty. And he's definitely no prince . . . 

Margot McCleery could have lived her whole life without seeing Bentley Wellington again-her ex-best friend and the poster boy for Hot, Rich Man-Whores everywhere. But Margot's whiskey-augmented grandmother "buys" Bentley at a charity bachelor auction, and now suddenly he's at her door. Impossibly charming. Impossibly sexy. And still a complete and utter jackass.

Bentley's just been coerced by his grandfather to spend the next thirty days charming and romancing the reclusive red-haired beauty who hates him. The woman he abandoned when she needed him the most. Bentley knows just as much about romance as he knows about love-nothing. But the more time he spends with Margot, the more he realizes that "just friends" will never be enough. Now all he has to do is convince her to trust him with her heart . . .



REVIEW

This is the second installment in The Bachelors of Arizona series and I was pleasantly surprised how charming Bentley was.  I had previously been somewhat charmed by him and his twin in the previous book but he came across like a bit of an airhead and a shallow pretty face.  In this story Bentley is written as a much more complex character than he seemed previously.  Margot is a charming recluse who also goes through a great deal of character growth through the book.  If you are looking for a good second chance romance with well written characters this is a great read and I highly recommend it.
