R E V I E W ➠ See Me After Class by Meghan Quinn




“Did you have relations with my brother . . .
Good question
I’d like to preface this by saying it was never my intention to ever get involved in a workplace romance, let alone get involved with the most surly, agitating, and pompous man I’ve ever met who just so happens to be my new friend’s brother
My intentions were to show students how English and reading books could actually be fun and make a new life for myself in the suburbs of Chicago
But so far, I’ve managed to be called into the principal’s office
Coerced into participating in the teacher’s badminton league
And instigated into passionate fights with Arlo Turner over education and decorum while losing my underwear at the same time
Known as Mr. Turns Me On, he’s the reason I might get fired from my first ever teaching job.

RELEASE DATE: November 12, 2020

Not my first read by the author and not my last as always I love Meghan’s books! This one was a good and then a slight bad at the end for me, hence the 4.5 stars rating. Nothing actually bad just personal preference.

A fun heroine, loving and loves her job, and a hero that is very straight forwards, serious and on point…this was so much FUN to read. As Meghan’s books usually are, but this one I was laughing out loud through out the book. The attraction between the two was ADDICTING…the hero was enough grumpy, alpha, sexy…and the heroine, gosh i enjoyed her, she was the type that wanted to move on and make it a better one if you will. Co-workers that has such strong chemistry are bound to tip over the line, this adventure was done in a fun, sweet, sexy and exciting way!

The ending is the only thing that bothered me, and both I and my bookbestie both talked about and agreed, it just kind of…ends. That’s all I am going to say.

R E V I E W ➠ Seconds by Freya Barker


(The Salvation Society)


Love, life…death—a few seconds can change everything.
I’m a criminal defense lawyer determined to build my own firm from the ground up.
My ex, the new prosecutor, complicates things; especially when the animosity between us infects the whole courtroom.
Then I meet Callum—my brother’s friend, a bounty hunter, and the accused in my new case.
The charge—sexual battery.
The supposed victim—a bail jumper he’s been chasing halfway across the country.
My instincts tell me he’s innocent, which I set about proving, but I didn’t expect to fall for him in the process.
Our mutual attraction becomes a tempting complication neither of us can resist.
When a body turns up, Callum and I realize a war is raging around us; and one of us is the target. With an ex-husband eager to take me down, and a woman determined to ruin Callum, we need to figure out who the perpetrator is…before time runs out.

RELEASE DATE: September 6, 2020

Not my first read by the author, little secret but I’ve been reading this author for years and loved all her books I’ve read. So when I saw she was giving us a (The Salvation Society) book I jumped right on it, I really liked all the books of hers I’ve read her writing style a lot and so I just signed up didn’t look at anything 🙂

I fell in love with this from page one, I kind of knew because again I really love this author’s writing style. These characters were mature, sexy, smart…they fit well together and the story line was fantastic lots of suspense and action mixed with a whole lot of romance. Romance between two adults hat have put their careers first hand and okay with that, until they ran into each other…literally. It kind of all went from there, Callum is a bounty hunter and accused of sexual harassment on accounts from someone he brought in and Reagan our heroine is GAH loved her, she is a criminal defense attorney and also they both have someone in common, the heroine’s brother is friends with the hero. So all mixed together you get lots of actions, real REAL romance and everything in between. I would highly recommend this book, can not wait to get a paperback of it and re-read this!

R E V I E W ➠ Layer by Layer by Kaylee Ryan




Sawyer
From the first moment I sit next to the sexy suit on the plane, the butterflies in my stomach have nothing to do with turbulence and everything to do with the way he’s looking at me.
When we land, he gives me his number, and I promise to call. Before I get the chance, we meet again.
It turns out he’s my new boss and nothing like the gentle stranger from the plane.
The longer I’m with Royce, the more I realize he has many layers, and I want to uncover them all one by one.
If only he would let me in.
Royce
Being CEO requires all of my focus, but I can’t stop thinking about the gorgeous woman from the plane with the gorgeous blonde hair and striking green eyes.
Sawyer Gibson is beautiful, intelligent, and very much off-limits. A line I shouldn’t cross.
Until I do… and there’s no going back.
I want all of her, but she deserves more than my hardened heart can give.
No matter how hard I try, I can’t escape her. 

RELEASE DATE: September 3, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read all her books and love her writing style, so to get something NEW I was so super excited. I did read the prequel of this Series PLAY BY PLAY also before this. Very sweet start!

I wasn’t sure what to expect because this is a office romance, but boy is it different. The hero is the oldest of all the brother’s and the TOP man in the company and the heroine happens to be a woman that escaped her last employer (she quit but it was under terrible conditions) and meets a kind man on the airplane who talks her down from a panic attack of her fear of flying and heights. THAT WAS LAYER ONE!Little did the heroine know this man she met has many layers and pealing them off, is a ride worth taking! I can’t wait for more of the brothers, which you will fall in love with from the prequel!

R E V I E W ➠ The Rivals by Vi Keeland




The feud between Weston Lockwood and me started at the altar.
Only neither of us attended the wedding, and the nuptials happened decades before either of us was born.
Our grandfathers had been best friends and business partners, at least up until my grandfather’s wedding day—when his bride-to-be blurted out she couldn’t marry him because she was also in love with Weston‘s grandfather.
The two men spent years fighting over Grace Copeland, who also happened to be their third business partner.  But in the end, neither man could steal half of her heart away from the other.
Eventually, they all went their separate ways. Our grandfathers married other women, and the two men became one of the biggest business rivals in history.
Our fathers continued the family tradition of feuding. And then Weston and I did, too.
For the most part, we kept as much distance as possible.
Until the day the woman who started the feud died—and unexpectedly left one of the most valuable hotels in the world to our grandfathers to share.
Now I’m stuck in a hotel with the man I was born to hate, trying to unravel the mess our families inherited.
As usual, it didn’t take long for us to be at each other’s throats.
Weston Lockwood was everything I hated: tall, smart, cocky, and too gorgeous for his own good.  We were fire and ice. 
But that shouldn’t be an issue. Our families were used to being at war. There was just one minor problem, though. Every time Weston and I fought, we somehow wound up in bed. 

RELEASE DATE: July 13, 2020

Not my first read by the author, I have read all her books and she’s a part of my BEGINNER TEAM, so it means I’ve been reading her books for years and probably will always read her books. Her writing style is to my liking in all of them and every time she comes out with a new book I get super excited!

Not your average office-romance, no these are not just 2 people that have known each other since they were young but they are part of the bigger rivalry for many years. Weston is a man that carries a lot of burden on his shoulder, the guilt, the unease, broken in a lot of ways. Very sexy tall, dark and handsome, yes, but broken. Sophia is a woman that learned her lesson at age 18, and never again. Or so she thinks, but lines can’t be blurred with the one man she despises, for many years, even if that’s what she has to keep telling herself. When they both fall on old ways, new ground rules are set. that only brought out the fun in the story, until well when all you know is to lie and hide people from yourself, does Weston fall on his old ways? This book is seriously ALL VI writing, so there is JUST that that you’ll love, it’s fun, the banter, sexual tension but also lies and betrayal. After all, was it all really fate?

R E V I E W ➠ Liar Liar by Donna Alam




My first mistake?
Causing the sexy Frenchman a concussion.
My second?
Telling the hospital staff that I was his girlfriend.
In my defense, he didn’t speak English.
My third?
Taking him home, letting him sleep in my bed. Naked.
I never said I was Florence Nightingale . . .
He gave me a night I’ll never forget but when I wake, he’s already gone.
I tell myself it’s his loss, that I wasn’t expecting him to stay forever anyway,
And my life moves on.
I get a new job. A fresh start in a new country and I stop counting my mistakes.
Until those striking green eyes meet mine across the office,
And it all comes rushing back.
But he’s not that man anymore.
Gone are his jeans and his playful attitude.
Rich and powerful, he’s now sin in a suit.
And his English is perfect.
Were his kisses also lies? His caresses meaningless?
I feel like such a fool—I want to wrap my hands around his neck.
Though not to hug him,
Because the man is a force of nature.
A master manipulator.
He’s also my new boss.
And I already hate him.
The biggest lies are the ones we tell ourselves.

RELEASE DATE: July 19, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I have read many on/off. So far it’s been 50/50 with the author’s books but I keep coming back because the ones I have loved I REALLY loved. This one was something different for me from the author.

I was on the fence about this one, it really started promising for me but the more I got into it the more I was feeling overwhelmed, it starts of in the US and migrates to France which I don’t have a problem with but I sadly have to say that there was TOO MUCH French and accent for me…I don’t mind it at all but this was overwhelming for me. The heroine is a easy going, sassy, true american and the hero is a Frenchman on a mission, rude, broody and very handsome. This is a office-romance type of feel, unfortunately I did not feel this one, just couldn’t connect fully, I kept trying to fully understand all the French and well the heroine just rubbed me wrong, she was just too simple and the hero there was huge potential there. *Just because it did not work for me doesn’t mean it won’t work for you.

R E V I E W ➠ After All by Kristen Proby




The last sizzling novel in Kristen Proby’s Romancing Manhattan series finds a widower falling deeply in love again with a woman who has scars of her own.
When Carter Shaw’s wife died five years ago, he was left to pick up the pieces not only of his own broken heart but also that of his devastated eight-year-old daughter, Gabby—leaving him with no time for anything else, let alone dating. But recently, Carter has noticed women again and soon even begins dating. No one has stuck around for long, mostly thanks to one very angry Gabby.
Nora Hayes has worked as Carter’s assistant for years. Recently divorced herself, Nora spends many hours at the office and helping Carter with his daughter whom she adores. Despite loving her job and being wrapped up in the Shaw family, Nora’s never given her handsome, kind workaholic boss a second thought, especially in the romance department.
But then the snowstorm of the century hits, and Nora finds herself stranded at work with Carter overnight. And suddenly, she sees Carter in a whole new, sexy light. The sadness that’s lived in his eyes for so long has now been replaced with pure, unadulterated lust—and Nora isn’t quite sure what to do about it. For after the pain of her divorce, she never thought she would give love a second chance.
Carter and Nora have always believed in never combining business with pleasure. But how can they possibly deny the all-consuming chemistry between them…?

RELEASE DATE: July 14, 2020

“You don’t like to sweat?” “No. I don’t. It’s just…sweaty.” “So noted,” he replies. “I plan to feed you well, Nora. I plan to do a lot fo things well.” If that doesn’t send a zing down my spine and straight to my lady parts, I don’t know what does.

Not my first read by the author and not my last, I have read the other books in this series as well and I have to say that THIS ONE TOOK THE CAKE for me, TOP 2020 MUST READ from page 1 through end! I seriously loved everything about it, from meeting the characters, to actions, events…and Gabby the he’s daughter, I want a daughter just like her, sweet, smart, sassy and super adorable and funny!

Not your average office-romance because Nora and Carter have known each other for a very long time. She’s been working for him for a decade, and even was there through out his late wife’s death, and of course her own divorce. So the lines were always there but they were blurred until that one day where ‘THE KISS’ almost happened and Carter couldn’t stop thinking about it. This takes you on a fun adventure of actions, events and little bit of heartbreak and I will warn you this man will spark your panties right off you, wow on the love scenes HOT DAMN to be exact! The outcome is very sweet and I am so sad to see this series end! At least all three books are available to binge read!

R E V I E W ➠ Power Surge by Kennedy L. Mitchell




Now what?
Everything has changed, and not for the better. The not-so-perfect life I had as VP is gone, along with the team that’s been by my side each step of my political journey. Every move I make, every breath and thought, now affects millions, and the weight wears me down without Trey as a welcomed distraction.
They tell me war is coming, and I’m the one who has to stop it. But how is the question no one can answer. Past enemies lurk in the shadows while new ones hide in plain sight, stalking, watching, and waiting for the right moment to take me out. I need Trey back. I need them all by my side and ready to fight for me.
Can I undo the mess that my predecessor left in his wake, or will I break under the burden to save the world?
No pressure, right?

RELEASE DATE: June 22, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I LOVE me some Kenndy books. I also have read the previous 3 books in this series and am very anxious for book #5 the conclusion because this one took me by surprise!

What I want ot say so far is that yes each book is based on the same hero and heroine but you get so much action and the ride along with it…will have you wanting more. This is a political romance, so the only disclaimer I had so far was the romance part that exists but me being a die hard romance lover I always crave a lot…which the author did give me in book 3 I’ll never forget that and absolutely LOVED it…that said I also loved the beginning and in between…this book starts off with a BANG and I wasn’t sure where it was going to go, in which all I never know it’s more a TAKES YOU BY SURPRISE type of books..the good kind of surprise. I don’t want to give out too much because this is a you SHOULD READ FROM BOOK 1 type of read because well you want that build of relationship between the hero and heroine. This one is a little less romance and a lot of action, it has some beautiful romantic moments that will have you swoon right out of your panties! These two are a magnet for one another, when life throws them every curve possible, they not only maneuver it but also always end up at the same path. Just plain beautiful the hero and heroine’s relationship, the events…BE PREPARED!

I am SUPER READY FOR BOOK #5 the conclusion!!

R E V I E W ➠ Wicked Bedmate by Jenika Snow




Getting fired and humiliated in front of everyone at my newly acquired secretarial job at Morgan Financial Holdings wasn’t how I’d seen my day going.
And then chaos—or maybe luck—ensued.
I was set up on a blind date, shocked that my former boss was giving me a month’s severance, and had the perfect interview lined up
Maybe things were looking up for me after all. And although finding a man should have been on the bottom of my to-do list, I couldn’t get Jason—the uber-sexy blind date—out of my head. Sexy and confident—or maybe arrogant—he had me yearning for more with just a smoldering look and a smirk of his lips.
But when a night of drinking led to getting in bed with him and having the wildest, most intense night of my life, I didn’t know if I should ask to see him again or do the good old walk of shame.
And it was when I walked into my interview the next day and came face-to-face with my prospective employer that the reality of my situation sank in.
Because there, sitting across from me with that devilish smile on his face, that knowing expression of what we’d done the night before, was the one and only Jason, my supposed one-night stand. Looked like my humiliation wasn’t over just yet.

RELEASE DATE: May 17, 2020

Not my first read by the author, I have read plenty to understand the witting style and in this one was a little bit off for me. It felt rushed at times where I maybe would have loved to see a little more development.

Jason the hero is a sexy, handsome and very level headed man, he is calm and in control. Except when to comes to Linda. Watch these two try and navigate this thing called life, all while trying to make something of them a go. -Office Romance Alert
