R E V I E W ➠ Hot and Heavy by Lacey Black

(Some Like it Hot Book 2)

He swore he wouldn’t touch her, but she’s about to test his restraint.
Prim and proper secretary Melodie Turner has been in lust for her boss for years . . . and she’s finally going to do something about it. P.I. Cole Sommers might be able to barely resist her sexy new attitude and flirtatious behavior, but when she takes a cue from his current case and decides to seduce Cole’s mind with highly provocative letters, she knows his body won’t be very far behind . . .
Cole is definitely in over his head. He’s got more cases than he can handle, but all he can think about is taking his secretary to bed, turning her over his knee, and showing her what happens to naughty girls who don’t behave. At every turn, Melodie is there, taunting him, teasing him, making him burn with a deep, undeniable need. But Cole promised her father that he’d protect her—even from himself—which means she’s off-limits.
Only he hadn’t counted on being the target of Melodie’s irresistible sensual assaults. Nor had he planned to lose his hardened heart in the battle . . .
Originally published as A Shameless Seduction by Janelle Denison.

Not my first read by the author, and I have not yet tread book #1 in this series. But the blurb in this one really caught my eye, and yes this may have been on the shorter side but the SIZZLE was turned up WAY up!

Melodie and Cole are a couple that sizzles then calms but sizzles back up. It was so much fun to watch Cole confusing himself on his feelings and Melodie was the prime heroine. I am glad I gave this a try and I want to give out more but honestly don’t want to spoil it since it is such a shorter read! Always excited to read a Erika Wild book and looking forward to more.

R E V I E W ➠ Love and Neckties by Lacey Black

For Samuel Grayson, everything is black or white. As a funeral director, there’s no room for in-between. He’s accustomed to dealing with life and death, though he’s definitely more comfortable with the latter. Especially when it comes to a chaotic, petite, feisty ball of energy. Freedom Rayne. Samuel’s pretty sure her goal is to make his life hell, or so it appears. When Samuel boards a flight to Las Vegas for his sister’s wedding, the last thing he expects is to share it with the one woman who drives him crazy.
Freedom is eccentric and completely content with it. Floating around from job to job, she finds peace and tranquility in everything she does, including tormenting poor, uptight Samuel Grayson. When she finds herself on the same flight as him for her best friend’s wedding, she sees this as the perfect opportunity to get under his skin, something she tries to do every chance she gets. The problem is the more time she spends with him, the more she likes him.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Not for Samuel and Freedom. Will they be able to forget about their trip when they return to Rockland Falls? What if one mistake turns out to be the best thing ever?

Not my first time reading the author, but I have only read a handful of her books. I wanted to read this one because the blurb really caught my eye and the cover is gorgeous of course. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this read.

Samuel ‘Sammy’ Grayson the hero was an INTERESTING hero, for one his profession was not your usual, he is a funeral director that really loves his job and is set in his ways. So “that” type of person. It was so much fun to watch the heroine Freedom who is a bubbly, live life to fullest and fun person bring this man out of his shell. It has lot’s of laughter, fun, interesting events so to say, and so much ROMANCE! I absolutely fell in love with the story line then the characters, their plane ride, the laughter, the kisses…I don’t know but I really enjoyed this read! Glad I gave it a shot!

R E V I E W ➠ Knocking Boots by Willow Winters

A drunken bet that led to a fake relationship? My naive little heart still hoped it would last…
We were never meant to be together.
He’s a bartender with noncommittal tendencies.
I’m looking for … the opposite. Commitment. Period.
But drinks and a bet led to something it shouldn’t have: a fake relationship. Worse, a first date, a first kiss… and then more.
He’s addictive and I can’t bring myself to accept the reality.
That it’s all a lie and I’m fooling myself by thinking he could want more. That I could change him.
He’s mine for as long as I keep on pretending like this is just for fun.
As if I don’t want more…
Like when he whispers my name, I pretend it doesn’t make my heart flip.
Like when he holds me at night, I pretend I don’t want to lay in his bed every night.
It’s just a bet; just a lie . . . until it isn’t.

RELEASE DATE: June 15, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I was excited for this…it’s a little different for me and I love the new cover! It was for sure a easy, super sweet and just beautiful read.I wasn’t sure what to expect and this kind of just flowed!

I loved both Grace and Charlie, their soul and heart is something to strive for. I couldn’t find any fault in them, yes they had pasts but together they were just so at ease and the love and passion. This author really knows how to throw in some steamy moments to make even someone like me blush, I loved every minute of it. I really don’t want to say too much, this is one of those books to just dive into and enjoy!

R E V I E W ➠ Awakening by Evelyn Montgomery

A dark past.
A secret identity.
A future ruined by the one thing I can never control.
My curse.
I swore to protect them.
I promised to always stand by her side.
But how can I do that when all I have ever run from
comes crashing back into my life and steals away
all the hope I had for a future.
I swore to protect them, and I will.
I will do all I have to do to keep them safe.
Even if in the end,
it is over my dead body.
Voices I fear I will never overcome.
The final battle for my soul rages inside
and I am suddenly paralyzed from stopping it.
But I finally see the light.
The truth.
Find my strength.
The enemy doesn’t stand a chance
when the victim finally chooses to survive.
When I finally learn
it has no power over me.
My will is stronger now with him by my side.
Always has been. Always will be.

Not my first read by the author and I have had the chance to read Book #1 already been looking forward to this one…was ready to see the conclusion. Justin and Rose’s story was a fast and beautiful one so the conclusion was a BLAST! I gotta say that the author has a way of twists and I mean hell I didn’t even know where this was going to go. I will say that the heroine is what I fell in love with more in this one she grew stronger and more secure of herself. The hero Justin…let’s just say really prepare. This is a type of book where I don’t want to give out too much because it’s worth the rush reading through this. Obviously I suggest reading Book #1 to start the adventure.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.
