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



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

There’s no turning back. I can’t go home a failure–again. Everyone wants to use me, make me their pawn, but I have other plans. I will win this election or die trying.  
Randi Sawyer 
It started with a shady business proposal I should’ve turned down. Now here I am pretending to be someone I’m not, and bonus, I’m at the mercy of a man whose joy comes from my failures. The deeper I sink into DC’s seedy political scene the more I realize I can’t trust anyone if I’m going to make it out alive. Until him. Secret Service agent Trey Benson is bitter, jaded, and oh so hot with his mischievous smirk and cocky attitude. He hates me, just like everyone else, but he might just be who I need to survive this mess I’ve landed myself in. 
Trey Benson 
Forced onto her protection detail, I’m certain she’s just another Political Barbie in this city. I should know–I’ve dated most of them. Except she’s not. Funny, foulmouthed and crazy as hell, not to mention drop-dead gorgeous, Randi Sawyer just might be the one person who can make a difference in DC–and in me. Too bad the boss says she’s off-limits, that it’s too risky for her career and mine. Good thing I’ve never been great at sticking to orders. 

Power Play is the first book in the five-book Power Play series. Each book cannot be read as a standalone. All five books follow one main couple’s relationship as it grows through a five-year time period. It’s suspenseful, steamy, and oh so unputdownable. If you’re a fan of Tiffany Snow, Meghan March, and Skye Warren then this series is for YOU!

RELEASE DATE: January 20, 2020

Stuck with a dangerously hot man nearly around the clock is tonrture in itself.

-Randi

Not my first read by author and I am very honored to have received this ARC very early!! I can’t wait to see more in this series because after this one I AM NOW HOOKED!! Also little about the author from how I perceive her: her books are different, in a REAL sense, so it’s not your typical romance and it’s always real to a point you forget your reading. So, this is a political-real-life-romance, enemy-to-lovers, angsty, suspenseful, mysterious, action packed, funny and sweet at times also. Slow burn for sure, but with some teasing! When hero and heroine meet it’s under not so good circumstances. What’s worse is that Randi was shocked by the man’s size and beautiful eyes, until the harsh words that come out of his mouth. How do you change someone perception of yourself when it’s a lie to yourself too.

Trey Benson is part of Randi’s security detail, and the man is a grumpy one. Sexy, but grumpy! Considering he got himself and his team in the situation they are in in the first place. I think it’s funny that he already made up him mind about Randi, but he has NO IDEA!! Trey and Randi are more intertwined than they know, small world if you will. Beware and that’s saying it light of K Y L E! Oh my gosh, did I want to stab him then suffocate him with his own pillow a few times! *grrrr* This is a VERY REAL LIKE political life, and boy did the author do some good research which ever way!!

Two people whoa re polar opposite, lies, wrongs, deception and real life. It’s when Trey realizes a little who Randi really is, every day it’s something new and he can’t believe his eyes because, not a minute ago she was this polished, clean beautiful and shark woman in a world of powerful men. This is a DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER through and through. I really really flipping fell in love with Randi, her past, her upbringings, her push through life…it’s admirable and not believable at times but in here you will understand that, really not everyone is as they seem. But throughout all this, she stays true to HERSELF even if the rest of the world sees her as this perfect Political Barbie!

While these two try and figure out WHO THEY ARE to themselves, while living this life of polar opposite yet so very much alike…it’s a on the edge of the seat, glued to your book type of story. As much as the political world is arrogant, there is a way to navigate, the question is will Randi trust her new found friend Trey to help her with that, and will Randi put himself back out there for someone he essentially had pegged already?!

Prepare for that ending & thereafter…seriously, a fight to the end?

A MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Out Matched by Kristen Callihan and Samantha Young



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITES Kristen Samantha

What happens when a boxer finds chemistry with a geek?

Parker Brown can’t believe she needs to hire a fake boyfriend. When she landed her dream job in renewable energy, she thought she’d be entering a world at the forefront of progressive thinking. But the head boss prefers to promote employees who are “settled.” Thankfully, she’s found the perfect candidate, a fellow intellectual looking for some quick cash. What Parker gets is his protective big brother—Rhys Morgan. The tall, muscled ex-boxer with a foul mouth shows up just as her boss does, and now she’s stuck with the manipulative jerk.

Responsibility weighs heavily on Rhys. Now permanently out of the ring, he’s trying to hold together his late father’s gym and keep his younger brother, Dean, on the straight and narrow. To save Dean from himself, Rhys takes his place, ready to give this society girl a piece of his mind. Instead, he finds an opportunity. Even though they can hardly stand each other, posing as Parker’s boyfriend is a win-win deal. She gets to keep her job, and he’ll charm her star-struck boss into sponsoring his gym.

Problem is, they can barely keep their hands off each other. And what started as an easy deal isn’t so easy anymore. Because what future can a rough ex-boxer, afraid to open his heart, and a polished society geek, who has sworn off real relationships, possibly have?

They say opposites attract. These opposites are about to combust on impact. 

RELEASE DATE: November 19, 2019

Okay, so I could admit that he was attractive in that caveman, overtly masculine, alpha-male kind of way that some woman found appealing. I wasn’t one of them.

-Parker

She melted into me. Perfect. A fucking gift in the middle of chaos. I kissed her and the world slipped away.

-Rhys

Not my first read by both author’s, actually I read Kristen before any of this and of course Samantha young as well. These ladies are a POWER-HOUSE seriously with this book, I started this at 9pm on a night and stayed up till 2am because I couldn’t put it down.

It was fun, quirky, sexy and romantic! A big strong tough fighter vs. the little pixie powerhouse. Parker Brown may might short but she is fierce, smart SO SMART and caring, even about the universe. Their first meet might have been under false pretenses but what happened after was a BEAUTIFUL MESS!!

Rhys and Parker are MAGNIFICENT TOGETHER, the enemy-to-lovers is right on spot, the chemistry between them, the banter, the EVERYTHING! Rhys has grown up with expectations to fulfill all his life. After the loss and living to save something that from the past, he doesn’t know anything else. Parker, trying to make it in the world of men, is strong yet vulnerable at the same time. These two teach each other a thing or two, mainly how to feel again.

p.s. Rhys’s kisses are stealthy.

Our hearts hammered, and I had never in my life felt such complete happiness.

-Lucas

Not my first read by the author, she is one of my TOP FAVORITE authors Also I have read Book #1 & #2 in this series.

This one is VERY DIFFERENT, in a good way…just has a lot more happening it feels like. This is a story of Lucas & Paige who have a very long history, since birth type of history. See, Paige grew up around Luca’s family and they even dated when they were in their teens up until college. When everything changed, ultimatums were not issued but taken that way so, not only did things end but on the worse note too. Furious with Lucas, Paige goes out to do what she wanted from life. And Lucas also moves on, but both of them have always been missing something….gah, such a sorrow time because you can tell that their souls belong together but life is life and well, it never works out how you wanted it to.

These two take a huge detour in life, off the joint path that they were destined to be on. This book contains high angst, enemy to lovers, little of friends to lovers also, sizzling but slow burn, healthy jealousy, small town, second-chance that will have you on the edge of the seat because it also contains suspense and mystery. Little historical thrown in there and you have a ON THE EDGE READ that you will NOT see coming! Truly a real life story with a hunt you will never see coming!

The confident playboy who never promised more than one night.
Back in college he was my friend, and the boy who could’ve broken my heart, if I’d trusted him with it. Instead, I chose his best friend. The last time I saw him, he looked at the heart I held in my hands and walked away.
It hadn’t been my heart.
It had been his.

This is my first read since the author is NEW to me. Thank you to the author for reaching out to me for a READ+REVIEW. This book is definitely something different from what I read normally, but in a good way. They both have share a link from their past but also HAD a not so good past they lived through. Now as adults, it’s a whole new game.

Wren is presented with a lifetime opportunity but also the ability to leave behind what she ‘oh so’ needs to get away from. She might have wished for that back once she found out that she will be working with Callum. She can’t blame him fully, she also ran all those years ago, but here…it’s different they are grown up, been through a lot more and of course working together puts them in a close proximity at all times. Of all places, in one of the most beautiful animal lands, Africa.

Things I didn’t expect in this: the heroine to be very rough and thorny. I mean, it was okay but I gad points where (because I didn’t read the previous books, I am assuming you get a glimpse of her before) so I wasn’t ready for Wren that all is! The hero Callum was arrogant, sexy, super smart and of course deep down had the kindest heart…

I will have to read the other books in the series, yes I know backwards but I don’t mind. I am now also curious about them. I really enjoyed this one!

R E V I E W ➠ Weekend Fling by Stacey Lynn



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Fresh out of a long-term relationship, Willow Parks is working two jobs and caring for her mother, whose husband left her with nothing but a pile of bills. That’s why Willow made a vow: no men until she figures out her own life.

But while she may not need a man, she could use a break. And a weekend away at a California beach to clear her head? That’s appealing. Even if the offer comes from Trey Collins, the irresistible tech-mogul millionaire who visits her coffee shop every morning like clockwork—and needs a date for his best friend’s wedding. With an adorable, occasional stutter, he refuses to take no for an answer.

Once the weekend begins, Trey is intent on proving how good they can be together. Willow’s even feeling tempted to break her vow—until reality rudely interrupts her well-deserved getaway. There’s no way she and Trey have a future, not with the colossal amount of baggage Willow has to offer.

But Trey is used to getting what he wants. He just has his work cut out for him convincing her that they want the same thing.

The steamy standalone novels in Stacey Lynn’s Crazy Love series can be read together or separately:
FAKE WIFE • KNOCKED UP • 28 DATES • WEEKEND FLING

RELEASE DATE: November 26, 2019

“I also think you’re beautiful and sexy as hell, heavy baggage and stubbornness included.”

-Trey

New to me author and Books, I have not had the chance to read the other books in this series, so YES i know I am jumping ahead but the blurb to this really caught my eye!

Right off the bat I fell in love with both hero and heroine, the story starts of lighthearted and sweet. Trey is seriously the sweet-sexy-alpha-and SWEET all mixed in one. Something about him, kind, sweet but yet strong and assertive. That’s why he does not take NO for an answer. Willow might have been hesitant but for a blank moment she gave herself fully to a man who is kind and a gentleman…until he biggest fear happened. And not only did she leave but also broke both her and his heart. Willow is so hard on herself and only knows bad relationships from her past and present with the incident of her father. Lucky for everyone Trey is not a man to give up, but everyone has their point of sanity right? The question is, is this going to be too much for Trey?!

Hero & Heroine POV, and no epilogue, so I am assuming since this is a Series these two will appear in the next set. (since this is my first one reading in the series, and I will say that I will be reading more by the author)

R E V I E W ➠ Everything’s Better With Lisa by Lucy Eden



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Lisa Betancourt has been my neighbor for months, but I didn’t know she existed until the night she threatened me with a baseball bat. To be fair, I kinda had it coming. That was also the night my entire life changed—my biological mother passed away suddenly and mysteriously, leaving behind a surprise baby. The moment I laid eyes on CJ’s chubby face, I knew I would do anything for him. What I didn’t know was how to take care of him. Fortunately, Lisa turned out to be my salvation in more ways than one. She stepped in and changed everything. The more time I spend with her, the more I hope the change can be permanent. Unfortunately, the pressure at work and unraveling the mystery of my mother’s past makes me wonder how that could be possible…
Cole Simmons lives in the brownstone next to mine and was an insensitive jerk, or at least I thought he was until he got custody of his baby brother, who’s just as adorable as he is. As the oldest child in a big family, I couldn’t resist stepping in to help when I realized my handsome neighbor was in over his head when it came to babies, though I’ve learned the hard way that handsome men can’t always be trusted. I moved to New York to start a new life, adjust to my new normal and heal from heartbreak. Unfortunately, my heart didn’t get the memo, and the more time I spent with Cole and the impossibly sweet CJ, the more I start to wonder if Cole isn’t the only one in over his head…
This full-length novel can be read as a standalone but is the third book in the Everything’s Better series. You’ll see friends from Everything’s Better with You, Everything’s Better with Kimberly & Cherishing the Goddess. Cole & Lisa’s love story is chock full or Enemies to Lovers, Single Parent, Secret Baby (or two), Nanny (no power imbalance) & Fake Engagement goodness and is safe with NO cheating.

RELEASE DATE: November 25, 2019

Not my first read by the author and I also have read Book #1 & #2 in this series!

Cole and Lisa had one of the most fun and funny meet. It really set the mood for me for the book. This author really knows how to address the heavy life topics with a beautiful story where the characters bosom together and the romance is just so BEAUTIFUL! I will say that have tissues ready and also expect all the issues to be address with respect and accurately, that’s a huge things to me, where if there are triggers I want them to be addressed in a way that explains and processes. Aside form that this was another very sweet, fun and romantic STORY that will have you falling in LOVE with Cole and Lisa!

Seraphine Dumont seems to have it all: she’s gorgeous, brilliant, and part of one of France’s most illustrious dynasties. But underneath the facade, Seraphine struggles to hold it all together. Besides grieving her adoptive father’s suspicious and sudden death, she also shares a tenuous role in the family business with Blaise, her in-name-only cousin. As tumultuous as their history is, he may be the only member of the deceptive Dumont family she can trust.
Seraphine is a temptation Blaise can’t resist. The torch he’s carried for years still burns. It’s his secret—a quiet obsession just out of reach. Until his brother demands that he spy on the increasingly cagey Seraphine, whom their father considers a dispensable Dumont outlier. But the more Blaise watches her and the closer he gets, the more he sees Seraphine may have every right to be suspicious. And she could be the next one in danger—from his own family.
As blood runs hot and hearts give in, Seraphine and Blaise have only each other. But can their love survive the secrets they’re about to uncover?

She’s not telling me to stop. She has a war inside herself too.

Not my first read by author, and I have read Book #1 DISCRETION in this series, which I would recommend reading first and I enjoyed very much!
In this book I had a harder time connecting, I don’t know if it was the characters together or the story but it just felt off a little for me. Little disappointed since I loved Book #1 very much.

This slow-burn, taboo, enemy to lovers was not what I expected, there were lot;s of parts where I was on the edge reading but other parts where I got little lost and read off. This is a VERY SLOW-BURN or rather foreplay notion between the hero and heroine. This is where I would recommend reading Book #1 for it to really make all the sense. Lot’s of drama and suspense too. The epilogue is little short, wish there was more and like I said earlier, great read I just…felt little off for me. Not your normal plot line. I appreciate the chance to have gotten an ARC from NETGALLERY for this!

Lots of banter, awkwardness, jealousy, and heat.
Midfielder Maclay “Mac” Logan is a loud-mouthed, tattooed ginger content with focusing on football. But when an adorably-freckled seamstress comes barreling into his life, he finds Netflix-And-Bickering with her to be his new favorite pastime.
Freya Cook is used to being the invisible woman with a needle and thread, offering cheeky punchlines as she helps dress London’s finest. She’s plus-sized in body and spirit, and other than her friendship with Mac, talking to the opposite sex is one skill she never mastered.
However, after one innocent game of Never Have I Ever, Mac offers to play Love Coach for Freya.
What neither of them see coming are the feelings that develop when the clothes come off.
Now they’re both about to learn the biggest lesson of all: Don’t fall in love with your best friend.

RELEASE DATE: November 21, 2019

“Now ride me hard and fast, treasure. Ride me like you mean it.”

-Mac

Not my first read by author and the blurb got me on this but then she came out with the cover and HELLLLOOOO THERE!!!!! After reading some heavy books in a row it was nice to jump into a fun and sweet rom-com.

Freya, there is something so innocent and sweet but full of sass and backbone about her. I instantly fell in love with her. A woman that has put herself in a class and just living through life, when enough is enough and she wants to do something about it. That’s where Mac comes in!! Also it’s the best when Freya calls sex “the sex” haha!

Mac suggest a great idea because they are best mates and nothing can go wrong. WRONG! Everything went wrong in all the sense. When lines are blurred and crossed, are these two going to be able to hold strong? This is a whole new level of SCOTTISH talk and sexy Scottish talking!! It’s really a light-hearted read but with so much deepness to it, it touches on a lot of basic but important issues.

BEWARE OF THE CAR-WASH *smirk* and Plus size Cat PJ’s!
The sweetest HEA!

Ambition. Revenge. Love.

Rita Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the gripping conclusion to the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to resist. Bred to fight. Survival is in my blood and surrender is never an option.

Though surrender is what Maxim Cade demanded of my body and heart, I had other plans. We were fast-burning fascination and combustible chemistry, but the man I trusted with everything was a trickster. A thief who stole my love. If what we had was a lie, why did it feel so real? The man I swore to hate will have it all, and wants me at his side. But power is a game, and we’re the pawns and players.

Facing insurmountable odds, will we win the world, or will we lose it all? 

RELEASE DATE: November 18, 2019

“I would have moved heaven and earth, bought heaven and earth, to get you back.”

-Maxim

Not my first read by author and yes I was lucky enough to also receive the Book #1 ARC. Not to mention that I was even considered for this one, super excited and honored! I love this author!! Now I don’t want to get too much into Book 1 again because the ones that have read it understand of course and the ones who haven’t I wouldn’t suggest starting with a BOOK #2 in a duet! Just sayin’

Book #2 jumps right into the left over action, so basically I was hanging from that cliff and then still hanging until I got pulled up. INTENSE right off the bat…the love between these two just PULLS YOU RIGHT IN! The hero and heroine have a way of bringing out the best and worse of one another, in the bedroom…I seriously though my kindle was going to burst into flames. HOLY HOTNESS!! I don’t want to give out too much but this combo is fucking fantastic!

I was not ready or prepared at the beginning but then you hit the middle and on and BOOM! Twists and danger! Seriously was on the edge of my seat reading this. Not your conventional ending either, the author made sure to finish it the way it started, AH-MA-ZING!!

Petra, a seventeen-year-old Dutch-American and the only heir of finance tycoon Roy Van Gatt, has always had her life rigorously planned and supervised by her strict father. From her internship at his hedge fund firm on Wall Street to her degree in economics at Columbia University, Petra is all set for a bright future in finance.
But everything falls apart when she develops a dangerous relationship with her father’s business partner and utmost confidant, Alexander Van Dieren. A Dutch nobleman, known as an unrepentant heartbreaker, twenty-three years her senior, and who is, above all else, her beloved godfather.
A twisted obsession for some, unconditional love for others, but one thing is sure: it’s a relationship that might cost them everything…

RELEASE DATE: October 28, 2019

“If my father is known to have a devoted network of friends and minions at his service, I seem to be the one working the hardest to avoid his displeasure.”

New to me author and books, very appreciative to the author for my ARC! This is a dark, forbidden, erotic and age-gap romance, but so much more! This book is more reality than the fairy tale type of image. It’s raw, real, passionate and PLOT TWIST. Just when I thought I got it, I didn’t and will say that I was not expecting the outcome of the book.

This is something where the hero is not your every day type of hero, there are secrets here, little mystery, lot’s of erotic and forbidden, which if you love this will be it for you. The heroine will come off as a semiprecious girl but in all honestly when you find out the ending, it will all make sense. It’s something I am not used to ready on a normal base so it was rather refreshing and there is a book #2 coming that I will definitely be looking into. I don’t do spoilers so no more from me that hasn’t already been said in the review’s but will say that this is not a regular romance!
