R E V I E W ➠ Hard Work by BJ Harvey



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Having watched his brothers meet their match, Cohen Cook is feeling something he never anticipated—envy.
With a demanding job, and helping his brothers with their biggest flip project yet, he doesn’t have time to sleep with, let alone date, anyone.
Skye Rossi is a free spirit. She’s a take-her-as-you-see-her woman who works hard and plays hard, but the person she wants to play with friend-zoned her the minute they met.
When sparks fly between Cohen and Skye, the only way forward is to propose a mutually beneficial arrangement that no one knows about.
Besides, what’s the harm in a few orgasms between best friends?

RELEASE DATE: January 30, 2020

Not my first read by author & I have read all the ones in the COOK BROTHER’S SERIES and loved every single one!! Super excited when I got the chance to early read this beauty!!

This one was a SWEET and FEISTY one because the hero is the ever so sexy Cohen EMT & his new partner the heroine the sister of two of the firefighters, Skye Rossi. She is feisty, outgoing, smart, sexy and down to earth, not to mention beyond gorgeous! Both of them are here to do one thing….a job, a very important job. But when you put two people together in a small proximity for a period of time, what can go wrong? Well, an agreement that a normal person may not have thought of but these two strictly have it handled, of course. “of course”

As light-hearted this was and fun, it was still in depth and you get to see sides of two souls that hurt for different reasons but find solace in one another, even for a short time being. Something about these two drew me closer to the series, maybe even thought me a lesson or two. And to end it with I CAN’T WAIT NOW FOR EZRA AND GILLY’S STORY, this should be an amazing story too!!

COOK BROTHERS SERIES


R E V I E W ➠ Boss Man Bridegroom by Meghan Quinn



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

“Will you do me the greatest honor of all time and be my bridegroom?” she asks, hope in her eyes . . .
How did I get here? My assistant, bent on one knee, holding my hand, her expectant face waiting for an answer.
Just . . . how?
How did I go from being insulted by Charlee Cox to hiring her to be my assistant? How is it that she’s chaos in color – making me crazy and my life better at the same time?
I never thought I would be staring down at her bright blue eyes begging me to go along with this ridiculous scheme I suggested.
Yes, I suggested. Like the idiot I am, I thought hey, why not start an HR nightmare and have my assistant ask me to marry her?
Confused? Don’t worry, so am I.
But try to follow along, because this is how I became Boss Man Bridegroom.

RELEASE DATE: January 23, 2020

And I want to cup her jaw in my large hand, pass my mouth over her cheek, her eyes, her nose, and then settle on her lips where I’d finally steal a kiss from her, a kiss I’ve wanted ever since I hired her.

-Rath

Not my first read by the author. I have to say that this one was a on a whim for me meaning, I signed up because I love Meghan’s books and did not even read the blurb. I decided to then just go ahead and read it and mid-way i went back to read the blurb and I will say that even though I love her books, I am not 100% sure I would have signed up after reading the blurb not because it’s bad, heck no this is fantastic but because it didn’t seem like something I’d like reading. Most times the blurb and author determine my choice of requesting an ARC. That said, I was pleasantly surprised that I liked this very much. It was a light hearted, fun, sexy and sweet story!

Rath and Charlee were AMAZING CHARACTERS! Charlee at times was over the top but Rath kind of balances her out. This is an adventure for sure where marriage of convenience is played along with some sizzling and sweet scenes. Like I said earlier a lighter read for my taste, but still pretty decent.

“I plan to tell you beautiful things every day.”

Not my first read by the author and I was a little confused at the beginning because of the different covers and names because the link took me to a cover named CowSex and I was lost because the information was for a cowboy in Essex . So after that little glitch I decided to give it a go hehehe.

I had a little hard time connecting to the story but was able to instantly catch the characters and honestly I totally understood why the original title CowSex title haha lot’s of laughter in this one. Basically it’s a fun book with romance and sweetness! It really was beautiful especially between the two main characters!!

R E V I E W ➠ A Favor For A Favor by Helena Hunting



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

When I joined Seattle’s NHL expansion team, I thought it was the start of something great. But nothing ever goes the way you expect. Take my introduction to my new neighbor. She came rolling in on the hot mess express at midnight, making a racket while she tried to get into my team captain’s apartment. Did I mention that he’s married to a woman who definitely was not her?

Imagine my surprise when I end up with an injury that has me out of the game for weeks, and she’s the one to offer to help me. I should probably add that she’s not the captain’s mistress. She’s his sexy, pastel-haired younger sister.

So we come up with an arrangement: she rehabs me so that I can get back on the ice sooner, and she can add a professional athlete that isn’t her brother to her client list. Seems simple enough. As long as I can keep my hands to myself and my hormones in check. 

RELEASE DATE: January 28, 2020

“His man stick is pretty much broken. I’m not getting a ride out of this,
if that’s what you’re thinking.”

Not my first read by this author and have read many many of Helena’s books. This is the most perfect ENEMY-TO-LOVERS romance I have read in a while! Everything about this from the words to characters…L O V E D!!

Stevie is a woman living in a shadow, meaning her older brother who is the NFL star has always out shinned her and when he wanted the attention, Stevie did everything to be out of it. Living a life to prove to herself that she can make it on her own and not the help of her famous brother (who btw has his own book in Book #1 a lie for a lie) that said, I was excited and happy to see that Stevie was getting her own story.

The hero is Bishop who is not only a Hockey player in the same team as Stevie’s brother but neither of them know of one another. When they meet is a night that Stevie will never forget although she’d love to and Bishop was throwing out assumptions left and right. In his boxers….ONLY his boxers. That’s how it continues….only Stevie has a few tricks up her sleeve too.

When they both realize how one another is, things change and some of the clearing comes out. What happens after I DON’T WANT TO SPOIL so, I will say that there is a lot of laugh out loud moments, lots of hate to, mystery, sweetness, and the sweet sweet romance, not to mention the sexy scenes WOW on those. Everything came together so well and I couldn’t get enough!

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!

R E V I E W ➠ Blindsided by Amy Daws



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

What happens when an almost thirty-year-old virgin agrees to let her Scottish footballer best friend give her some lessons in seduction?
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!

R E V I E W ➠ Donut Disturb by Melissa Williams



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

It was a donut emergency. A dough or die moment.

At least, that’s what I’m telling myself. It would explain why, from the moment Baxter DeCavhalo comes crashing into my kitchen, I’ve been acting out of character.

Why I’m sharing secret donut recipes, licking frosting off fingers that aren’t mine, and falling for the off-limits neighbor. I know better, I need to be focusing on my bakery and my next donut creation…but there’s just something about Bax that keeps me coming back for more.

It’s not the heat of the kitchen that’s getting to me, it’s Bax. And this slow burn is about to combust. 

FREE with Kindle Unlimited!

RELEASE DATE: October 2, 2019

New to me author and books! I was soo ready for a good rom-com and this is exactly what I got! A good laugh, swooning and romance!! LOVE LOVED everything about this story!!

Cassidy and Bax’s story is not only a rom-con but also a WHEN TWO SOULS THAT ARE MEANT TO BE meet. Every one of their meets was cute, fun, and full of sizzling energy and laughter. Not to mention that I was hungry through out the whole book, specifically for doughnuts and Bax 😉 Their story wasn’t ordinary and it was so sweet how they brought out the best from one another.

Full of genuine feelings, looks, romance, swoon, little but of suspense and lot’s of laughter & ALL THE FEELS!! Only thing that I needed was a little more of the ending. It kind of went quick if that makes sense. But I will be looking forward to reading more by the author & thank you for my ARC!

R E V I E W ➠ I Knead You Tonight by Teagan Hunter



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

I hate Drew Woods, and she hates me.
Even so, I’m not the cold jerk most make me out to be, and I have no problem moving the single mom and her baby into my home. I do, however, draw a line when it comes to acting on the way her loose lips make me feel.
Alive.
She’s too mouthy, too prying, and her curves are way too distracting.
I might have lost my way after a nearly fatal car accident, but I’m not stupid. Giving in to Drew would be a short-lived fix for this pain I’m saddled with, and I knead something permanent.
I’d be insane to think what we have could be anything other than temporary…right?

RELEASE DATE: October 17, 2019

“Spooning leads to forking, you know.”
I waggle my brows, handing him a utensil.

Not my first read by the author, I LOVED all her books so far & I was excited to see that she was doing a SINGLE-PARENT one and I knew I would get everything Teagan plus MORE….SO MUCH MORE!

What you get is two head-strong alpha hero and alpha heroine…a single-mother taking care of herself from day one and now doing her best to do THE BEST for her son. The two characters couldn’t be more oposite, day and night. Their bickering, the anger for one another…it’s a fine line between foreplay and actual hate. The characters are all TEAGAN if that makes sense, if you’ve read her before you’ll know if not…basically the style of the author…all TEAGAN!

Winston is broken…I mean that in every way. He is struggling to find himself again after an incident occurred that left him hollow. From then on everyone has an idea of who he is when in reality it’s something else and more in every way. Drew is a single mom who is very VERY headstrong because she’s had to be. She is struggling, IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE. But doing her best to make ends meets. Working at the Pizzaria that Weston and his family own, has gotten her something…but she is looking for more. When Winston demands something from her, she doesn’t accept it but is willing to because of the situation. Winston hides that big heart of his, can Drew realize it before it’s too late for both of them?

They both run HOT AND COLD…the hostility between them is kind of fun and sexy at the same time. As much of a light and fun read this is it has hidden compartments of sorrow and pain. It’s a READ BETWEEN THE LINES type of book, for me at least. I enjoyed it from chapter 1 to the end. Teagan has a way with words and her characters, including the side ones too. She tells a story that captivates you from the beginning. Another AMAZING read!!

R E V I E W ➠ Kiss Me Tonight by Emma Hart



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

What do a wrong number text, a burning building, and a quirky florist have in common?
A hunky firefighter with an extra-large…hosepipe.
In hindsight, I never should have opened that text message. The last thing I needed first thing on a Monday was a picture of some stranger’s, um, eggplant, in my inbox.
I also should have replaced the batteries in my fire alarm, because my Friday night did not need to end with my apartment building going up in flames.
But it’s fine. It’s fine. Everything is fine.
I’m only lying in a hospital bed with more split ends than I’ve ever had, almost all my Earthly possessions have turned to ash, and apparently, they don’t serve wine to patients in this place.
But like I said, it’s fine.
Until he walks in.
The guy who saved my life. My hero. Noah Jacobs.
And the universe is amusing itself at my expense, because the dirty photo I woke up to on Monday?
It’s his.

RELEASE DATE: September 24, 2019

I’d kissed the literal man of my dreams.

-Reagan

“I’m starting to feel a little bit objectified,” he said, fighting a smile.
“That’ll be because I’m objectifying you,”

Not my first read by author but I believe my first official review! I have not read Book 1 in this series yet. I am going backwards but I don’t mind at all. The blurb alone in this is what got me! Plus I have read Emma Hart before and I LOVE her rom-com’s!

BEST START EVER! I now remember why I like the author’s books, FUN! Reagan receives a accidental text, by that I mean a man has send a DICK PIC to the wrong number. Of course, she freaks out then does the one thing you shouldn’t…she texts back! To her surprise, the Mystery man was quiet charming and funny over the text. They exchange a large amount of messages including personal information. Reagan is intrigued and want’s to know more about the mystery man.

Noah  is a sexy, single and handsome firefighter, New to town and when one night of drinking went wrong, with his phone that is…he is udderly surprised that his accidental message to a stranger went ANSWERED. In a form of funny and making him feel all kinds of right, for it being the wrong recipient. When a call comes through that a purple haired woman was in need of rescue during a fire, he can’t believe who he rescues.

From then on it really involves, a beautiful friendship, lots’f of laughter and swooning too! Reagan and Noah couldn’t be more opposite in ways but so similar in all the other! It was a fun book yes but very romantic, exciting and I didn’t want it to end.

A MUST READ!
