Once Upon A Sure Thing by Lauren Blakely Review

5 SMOOCHES!

SYNOPSIS:

It’s so easy being best friends with a gorgeous, talented, charming guy.

Said no woman ever. Except me.

My friendship with Miller is a sure thing — he’s my plus one, my emergency contact, and my shoulder to lean on. He’s also been by my side helping me raise one helluva awesome kid who’s the center of my world.

Nothing will change our easy breezy friendship. Until I have the bright idea to convince him to start a new band with me.

Trouble is, our sizzling chemistry in the recording studio is getting harder to ignore, no matter how risky it might be.

***

Sing sexy songs with the woman you’ve been lusting after? Get up close and personal as you croon to the woman you’ve wanted for years?

Piece of cake.
NOT.

Performing with the sweet, sassy and insanely wonderful Ally is like one gigantic obstacle course of challenges for my libido. And my libido is one sexy love song away from kissing her senseless and taking her home.

But, I’m not a serious kind of guy, and she’s not a one-night-stand kind of woman. If we cross the horizontal line, we might risk our sure thing and end up out of tune forever…

REVIEW:

I love a good friends-to-lovers romance, and Lauren Blakely gave readers a truly fantastic one in Once Upon A Sure Thing. I stated in my review of Once Upon A Good Time, the first book in The Heartbreakers series, that this series was poised to become my favorite from her, and she definitely took a giant step in that direction with this book. This series is everything I hope for when I reach for a romantic comedy. These stories are light and fun and so sexy, and Blakely works her magic by blending heat and humor into three-hundred pages of banter-filled, book-based reading bliss.

In Once Upon A Sure Thing, the second Heartbreaker brother, Miller, and his long-time best friend, Ally, are up in a sweet and romantic best-friends-to-lovers romance. These two characters endeared themselves to me from the start, and I enjoyed every minute of their story so much. They already had loads of natural chemistry and an obviously deep connection as friends, but it was all sparks and fire when they stepped outside of the friend-zone into a mutually—ahem—beneficial scenario. Six years of suppressed desire, six years of denied emotion, six years of unacknowledged lust bubbled to the surface in a sexy eruption when Ally and Miller took another first in their relationship and started singing together. Their charismatic performances were positively electric, and it wasn’t long before they were heating up the studio—and burning up the sheets. Blakely takes readers along for the ride as Ally and Miller navigate these new feelings and figure things out.

Once Upon A Sure Thing was a feel-good, heart-fluttering, fanning-my-face story that left me happy and smiling when I finished reading it. An addictively charming love story between two people who were clearly meant to be, Once Upon A Sure Thing was a playful and passionate story that I simply could not put down. Blakely did the impossible and left me sated by this story yet hungry for the next one. Five smooches from me for Once Upon A Sure Thing by Lauren Blakely!

I was twelve years old when I fell in love with Piper Kelley. Even at the age of eight, she was everything I wasn’t: brave, bold, and beautiful.

With a battered heart, I left for Vegas, determined to put her behind me. But eight years later, fate proved once again that it had never cared about my plans.

Now, I’m back home, and determined not to fall into the same trap I spent the majority of my adolescence trying to escape.

It’s time I let her know.

Guilty As Sin by Meghan March Review

5 Smooches

Synopsis

Guilty until proven innocent.

That’s the way the world works, right?

I’m tired of being convicted without evidence, all because my last name is Gable.

The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules.

If only I could forget just how easily Lincoln Riscoff can drag me under his spell.

 

Review

We are back in the turbulent, intense, emotional and hot world of Whitney and Lincoln while we continue to follow their steamy and drama fulled lives. Guilty as Sin picks up from the ending of ‘Richer Than Sin’ and we are immediately dragged back in and hooked onto their story. I couldn’t wait to devour this book and Meghan certainly didn’t disappoint.

I loved the first book and I knew this one wasn’t going to disappoint. One of the things I enjoyed about this one in particular was that was got more information on their pasts and the history involved which filled in a few missing gaps from the first story. We really get an in-depth look into the families and the past drama that has led to this point. I loved delving deeper into Whitney and Lincoln’s relationship as well- they are so explosive together: a car crash and a firework all rolled into one.

“No woman has ever affected me like Whitney Gable. Not before. Not since.”

As always with one of Meghan’s read, the plot was one big twisty, intense, fiery read that constantly had me on the edge of my seat…biting my nails and shouting at my kindle…desperate to know what was going to happen next. We might get some answers but we are also left with many questions.

“I’m fucking done. You leave, I leave.
End of story. ”

Lincoln is willing to fight for he wants and Whitney is cautious of allowing her heart to open to him with so much opposition and potential heart break. Will these two be able to overcome their families pasts and all the obstacles stacked against them? Or will old wounds resurface once again in this modern Romeo and Juliet style romance? Left with one hell of a cliffhanger it looks as though we are going to have to wait (not so patiently) for the next instalment to get all the answers we are so desperately waiting for.

_________________________

SYNOPSIS

_________________________

 

Who needs mistletoe?

Most people wouldn’t think of a bad Santa case as the perfect Christmas gift. Then again, Molly Malone, office manager at Hunt Investigations, isn’t most people, and she could really use a distraction from the fantasies she’s been having since spending the night with her very secret crush, Lucas Knight. Nothing happened, not that Lucas knows that—but Molly just wants to enjoy being a little naughty for once . . .

Whiskey and pain meds for almost-healed bullet wounds don’t mix. Lucas needs to remember that next time he’s shot on the job, which may be sooner rather than later if Molly’s brother, Joe, finds out about them. Lucas can’t believe he’s drawing a blank on his (supposedly) passionate tryst with Molly, who’s the hottest, smartest, strongest woman he’s ever known. Strong enough to kick his butt if she discovers he’s been assigned to babysit her on her first case. And hot enough to melt his cold heart this Christmas.

EXCERPT

_________________________

 

Joe looked behind him to make sure they were alone. “Molly and the old lady elves. What’s really going on with that?”

“Have you tried asking her yourself?”

Joe grimaced. “Look, she doesn’t belong out there doing what we do, okay? She’s … amazing, but too soft to do it.” He shook his head. “She’s always been that way, far too tender-hearted for her own good, dragging home strays, wanting to save the world. She’ll believe any sob story given to her. She loves too hard. She’ll get taken advantage of doing what we do—“

“Don’t,” Lucas said. “Don’t do that.”

“Do what?”

“Don’t belittle her. She’s not a little kid anymore, Joe. Nor is she incompetent. Far from it. In fact, she’s smart as hell. Look, a lot of bad shit happens to all of us, and our experiences have made us hard. Cold. But not her. She’s special, and stronger than both of us put together.”

This got a moment of surprised silence from Joe. And since Lucas didn’t want to fight with him, he rose and grabbed his laptop for their meeting.

“What’s going on between the two of you?” Joe asked.

Lucas turned back. “You asked me to get involved. I’m involved. And you know what? Out of all the things she loves, she loves you the most. Instead of trying to hold her back, do you know what you should be doing? You should be doing the job you asked me to do. You should be training her, letting her fly, and stand at her back while she does.”

Joe was stunned. “This is all just a phase for her, why would I do that?”
“It’s not a phase. And you should do it because she would do it for you,” Lucas said. He then walked out of his own office, doing his best to shrug off his irritation at Joe.

From New York Times bestselling author, Meghan March, comes a brand new saga of forbidden love and second chances.

 

A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends.

Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.

I didn’t know or care what her name was.

Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man.

She hates me, and she should.

I objected on her wedding day.

Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.

They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable.

I’ll never be done with her.

I don’t care what it takes, because failure is not an option.

No matter who or what stands in our way—this time, she’ll be mine forever.

When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning.

Even Queens. Especially them.

And a sacred promise keeps him there.

To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure.

Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story.

This is theirs.

~ Shayla Black

 

 

I’m Evan Cook—billionaire tech entrepreneur and widower. Professionally, I’ve got it all. But since my wife died, my personal life has fallen apart. Remarrying seems like the obvious answer, so I place an ad. I’m not asking for much. The ideal woman only needs to be smart, organized, pretty, and helpful—both in and out of bed—without expecting romance. I never thought to look right in front of me…but it turns out that Nia Wright, my sexy, sassy assistant, just might be the perfect candidate.

After an unexpectedly hot night together, I’m ready to stop interviewing strangers and simply marry her. On paper, she ticks every box on my list. Best of all, she’s far too sensible to fall for me. I didn’t see the flaw in my logic until it was far too late. I never thought I’d lose my heart for the first time. And I definitely never imagined that she could consume me until I more than crave her. But she’s harboring a secret that could tear us apart—just as I’m finally putting myself together.

Professor Feelgood by Leisa Rayven Review

5 Smooches

Synopsis

What’s a girl to do when a man who’s countless shades of wrong feels oh-so-right?

Ambitious book editor Asha Tate is a hopeless romantic. Despite her mediocre track record with men, she believes in swooning, sighing, and the everlasting love of true soul mates. Sure, sex is okay, but she’s not someone who’s ever been driven by her animal urges.

Until now.

When Asha stumbles upon the scorching hot Instagram feed of someone calling himself Professor Feelgood, she falls in lust for the first time. Not only is she left panting over the professor’s insane body, but his angst-filled poetry about losing his one true love speaks straight to her soul.

Desperately in need of a bestseller for her struggling publishing company, Asha knows the professor’s potential to sell to his millions of loyal followers could be the lifeline her bosses need. However, the ink is barely dry on a book deal before she realizes she’s made a terrible mistake. Sure, the professor is incredibly talented and sexier than any man has a right to be, but the man behind the persona isn’t at all who she pictured. In real life, he’s intense, arrogant and infuriating, and his uncanny ability to rub her the wrong way turns her dream project into a total nightmare.

Knowing that the professor is everything she doesn’t want in a man should help Asha ignore her occasional urges to mount him, but she quickly learns that explosive, unwanted chemistry can make even smart people do stupid things.

Review

Leisa can make me feel like no one else. Her ability to string words together to make magic is astounding. I have read and adored each and every single thing she has put out and have never been disappointed.
