Review

“Dirty talk me, you sexy giant.”

Max Monroe has quickly risen to the ranks as an absolute favorite romantic comedy writer of mine. By combining witty banter, hilarious situations, sweet declarations and a bit of drama the stories in the Billionaire Bad  Boys series are addicting and oh so satisfying. I thought I was in love with Kline and that no one could top him but Thatcher Kelly’s deviousness mixed with sweetness has him beat.

‘When in the hell had he become so vital to my daily life? It had to be the Supercock.’

Thatch and Cassie are the perfect balance to each other. Neither let’s the others pranks go unchecked and when both want something they commit one hundred percent. Cassie is fun, feisty and fierce. From the get go she is determined to mess with Thatcher’s head and instead of calling her on it he plays along and messes with her right back. Soon what started as a joke turns very real and what was once just lust and friendship has become much more real and intense.

“When it comes to you, I have an endless supply of sweet, Cassie.”

I spent so much of Banking The Billionaire swooning over Thatch. He was so much more sincere and loving than I ever expected and I never saw his backstory coming. I was deeply touched by Thatch and Cassie and their devotion to each other and desire to be in a real relationship despite neither having much experience in relationships.

“Cool it, Crazy, or else I’ll just keep spanking.”

If you love a romantic comedy with wit, banter and two semi assholes for the main characters than this is the book for you. I devoured it all and cannot wait for this secretive writing duo to give me more.

The Concubine (Unexpected Circumstances #5) by Shay Savage Review

5 Smooches!

01e 01d 01c 01b 01a

Synopsis

Royalty requires sacrifice.

As King Camden’s health declines, the need for an heir becomes crucial, impossible to ignore. With no other viable choice, Alexandra must stand stoically by when Hadley comes to the court of Silverhelm as Branford’s concubine. The queen’s edict of duty echoes through Alexandra’s mind as she accepts the loathsome conditions for the sake of the kingdom. The only person more devastated by the circumstances is Branford himself.

As Branford spurs Alexandra’s affections, and King Edgar continues press his post-war advantage, all seems lost to the young couple. Treachery still lies deep within the castle of Silverhelm, and the revelation of the traitor will come from the least likely of sources.

REVIEW

I KNOW, I KNOW!  If you have been following this series as diligently as I have, you are probably in an upheaval about this book.  Everyone seems to be huffing and puffing about it.  I will let you guys know right now that what you think might happen, well, it does.  But, Shay Savage managed to pull it off tastefully and it isn’t full throttle in your face.  It was well done and honestly, stuff like this occurs in Historical’s.  It just does.

“There is nothing I have to offer you except grief!”

So let’s move on because this one was loaded with the kind of gut churning angst I adore.  And so much betrayal and drama to boot!  I am hooked on this series.  I cannot wait until the next installment.  Because we are left with a ridiculous amount of questions.  And I am literally dying for Branford to make some heads roll!

Excerpt:

“I am a coward,” he whispered.

“Branford…no.” I took a step toward him.

“I am,” he said. “I’m a coward and an idiot. Alexandra, please…hear me out.”

I closed my eyes for a moment and nodded.

“I have hurt you,” he stated. “It was not my intent, yet it happened anyway.

“You barely spoke to me,” I replied as I turned my head and closed my eyes tightly.

“You would not have wanted me here,” he said quietly. “I have been…”

He stopped and sighed heavily, approached me, and dropped back to his knees. I looked down to see him once again and reached out to touch his rough cheek.

“I wanted you here,” I said. He shook his head.

“I am…” Branford paused, and when my fingers brushed his face, I could feel his jaw clenched tightly. “I am afraid. Afraid for you. I brought you into my world to insult King Edgar, and insult him I have, but he does not intend to take the insult out on me and my army. He plans to take it out on you. I have put you in terrible danger out of arrogance and lust for revenge.”

He grasped his thighs as he looked up into my eyes.

“I never should have brought you here,” he whispered vehemently. “You are in peril, and it is my fault! I am to blame! How can you look at me, knowing I did this to you? Now that you know what he will do if I do not have an heir soon or if I refuse Whitney next month—he will not just…just kill you.”

He stopped speaking abruptly, and I could sense the pounding of his heart in his chest and see the panic in his eyes.

“I did not want you to hear him speak such things,” he said.

“He has said worse,” I said, presuming.

“He has.” I saw and felt his anger blaze in his eyes. “I will not allow you to be touched, my wife. I would…I would sacrifice my kingdom before I would allow that to happen.”

“Branford, you cannot—”

“I can!” His eyes blazed. “I would sacrifice all of them before I would let him touch you!”

Reagan

I hate him. Jude Titan is everything that’s wrong with the male sex: cocky, domineering and loaded with swagger. Oh, and did I mention he’s a Republican? Yeah, the guy’s so conservative he leans to the right when walking. And lucky me, I’m running against him for Senate. But I’ve got plenty of fight in me. A golden boy war hero opponent with a smile that leaves melted panties in its wake? Bring. It. On.

Jude

Damn, she’s sexy. Reagan Preston intrigues me from the moment I lay eyes on her. And speaking of laying…I want between those thighs. But I want to make her burn for me first. Every debate and stolen moment is foreplay for us. She claims she hates me, but her body tells a different story. I plan to win this election, but I also want to win the sharp, fiery Democrat who captures my attention like no woman ever has. Politics is filthy, just like all the things I want to do to Reagan Preston.

Owen Daniels lives his life eight seconds at a time. The thrill of anticipation that comes with sitting on twelve hundred pounds of untamed power is unparalleled. The adrenaline rush that floods his system when the chute opens is one of life’s most unique and natural highs.

Ride eight seconds bareback on a bucking bronco—that’s his life.

When Owen’s stock horse, Remington’s Lady, is injured midway through the rodeo circuit, he trailers her back home to Willow Bay, Alberta, to remain in the care of the local vet, Ray Brookes.

Months later, with a truck bed full of buckles, Owen comes home to collect his Lady from the man he trusted to help her recover. Only Ray happens to be short for Rayne, and Rayne happens to be a woman.

And this woman wants nothing to do with a cowboy fresh off the circuit. As far as she’s concerned, he can take his buckles, boots, and spurs right back on out of her life.

Will Rayne keep them from holding on to their eight-second ride? Or will love buck out of the chute in time for a perfect score?

— ABOUT THE AUTHOR: ANNE JOLIN —
Hey y’all,
I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns, and driving in trucks.
I never expected to be an author. A massage therapist? Yes. Take over the family construction company? Yes. But an author? No. Writing was something that snuck up on me and rooted itself into my life. It was beautiful to discover that love, and I’m truly grateful to say I’ve found my passion.
Since I’ve always been a creative person, it feels amazing to harness all of that energy and use it to tell a story I love. I enjoy incorporating bits of my real life into the stories I write. What parts are true? Hah. I’ll never tell—what would be the fun in that?
If I could leave y’all with one thing, it’s that life’s far too short to not live it out loud. Drown in your passions, hold on tight to the things that inspire you, and chase your dreams relentlessly. I can promise you without a doubt that you won’t regret it. I know I don’t.
Mad love,
Anne Jolin

Broken Prince by Erin Watt Review

g5

4 Smooches

01a 01b 01c 01d

Synopsis

These Royals will ruin you…

From wharf fights and school brawls to crumbling lives inside glittery mansions, one guy tries to save himself.

Reed Royal has it all—looks, status, money. The girls at his elite prep school line up to date him, the guys want to be him, but Reed never gave a damn about anyone but his family until Ella Harper walked into his life.

What started off as burning resentment and the need to make his father’s new ward suffer turned into something else entirely—keep Ella close. Keep Ella safe. But when one foolish mistake drives her out of Reed’s arms and brings chaos to the Royal household, Reed’s entire world begins to fall apart around him.

Ella doesn’t want him anymore. She says they’ll only destroy each other.

She might be right.

Secrets. Betrayal. Enemies. It’s like nothing Reed has ever dealt with before, and if he’s going to win back his princess, he’ll need to prove himself Royally worthy.

Review

‘He told me to stay away. He told me I didn’t belong. If only I’d listened to him.’

The Royals are back and as addicting as ever! Broken Prince picks up right where Paper Princess left off and Ella is gone and Reed is determined to find her and make things right again. But when so much is screwed up can it ever really be fixed? The drama, angst and the twist and turns will leave you with more questions than answers.

“I’m available. Who wants a go with the trashy stripper? I know tricks that even porn stars don’t.”

For me Broken Prince was a lot of high school drama and what at this point feels like a bunch of set up for everything to implode in Twisted Palace. I truly love this messed up family and I personally am getting overly anxious for some of the other storylines as well. Reed and Ella’s story is slowly unwinding and I can honestly say that I have no clue how it is all going to come together. I was constantly surprised and I cannot wait to see how it all unfolds.

‘I hate that he still has power over me. I hate that I no longer feel in control over anything. I hate that I’m here. That my mom is gone. That I fell for Reed in the first place.

The Royal’s Saga is super addicting and extremely satisfying to this lover of angst. I cannot get enough of these people and their messed up lives. I need more and the wait for the next book is killing me.

We’re celebrating the release of STROKED by Meghan Quinn! 

 

STROKED by Meghan Quinn

Scheduled to release: July 20, 2016

NA Romantic Comedy

BLURB:

Reese King: Olympic medalist, underwear model, Greek god.

His body is chiseled from rock, sculpted by the weight room, and refined by water.

On a daily basis his skin is completely bare for everyone to see, tan and defined, only covered up by a minuscule piece of spandex. There is no denying his sex appeal.

I hate to admit it, but I’m head over heels infatuated with him.

There is one HUGE problem though. His achingly gorgeous abs, inked up arm, and cocky swagger belong to my boss, the high-profile, reality star bitch from hell and certified heinous human being, Bellini Chambers.

What I think is going to be an easy job assisting a glorified wench turns into a cluster f*ck of epic proportions.

About the Author:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

REVIEW:

“There is always a pivotal turn in everyone’s life that tilts the axis of their world, sending them in a different direction.” ~ Paisley

Paisley Maccaro left the reservation she grew up on, much to her parents’ dismay, to chase her dream of working in the film industry. With a degree in film production under her belt, she had her dream within her grasp… until ‘The Incident’ that got her fired and blacklisted. Now all of her hard work is forgotten, and she’s starting over from scratch. Having sold her soul to the devil herself, Paisley takes the only job she can get as the personal assistant to reality TV star, Bellini Chambers, and her devastatingly handsome (but totally fake) boyfriend, Olympic swimmer, Reese King.

“Any other person would wilt under the pressure of the human race observing them as an outsider, but not me. I thrive off it. I want the attention; I crave the attention. I DESERVE the attention.”  ~ Bellini

Bellini Chambers is Satan reincarnated. An entitled, narcissistic diva, she is also one of Paisley’s bosses. Spoiled, vicious, disrespectful and just an all-around awful person who has deluded herself into believing that she is God’s gift to the world, Bellini is convinced that everyone wants to be her and that she is actually generous humanitarian. Regardless of the less than impressive means with which her family came into their wealth, she treats everyone around her as if they are beneath her. Only her father, and her dog, Pope Francis, who she believes is some sort of disciple of God and a religious icon of the ages, are shown any sort of kindness. She is the epitome of every single one of those awful millennial-age stereotypes, but her ridiculous, over-the-top antics draw in the viewers, if only to gawk at her obnoxious behavior.

“It’s never easy saying goodbye, but to say goodbye to your sport, the one thing that’s made you eat, sleep, and breathe ever since you can remember, it’s like a piece of your soul dying.” ~ Reese

Devastatingly handsome, Reese King is American swimming royalty. A three-time Olympic silver medalist, he’s in the last lap of a successful swimming career. A career laden with records, championships and accomplishments but lacking that one crowning achievement: a gold medal. Going into his final Olympics, he knows that this is his last shot. Desperate to shed ‘The Silver Stroke’ nickname the media’s dubbed him with, he does not want to end his career being known as a choke artist. His publicist, with her eye on his post-swimming future, has talked him into doing this reality show—complete with this sham of a relationship with Bellini—to increase his visibility and marketability. He cannot stand Bellini, and he hates everything about this show. Well, until he meets his new assistant, Paisley.

“What’s life if it’s not a roller coaster?” I ask. “A pleasant merry-go-round with no drama.” ~ Reese

Reese and Paisley’s attraction is immediate and very mutual. They both know they can’t go there—too much is riding on it for both of them. But neither is able to stop from being swept away in the waves of feelings crashing over them, and they are both drowning in their attraction to each other. Unable to help themselves, they begin seeing each other in secret. It’s a disaster of epic proportions in the making, and they know it.

“Finding your soulmate is never easy, Paisley. The luckiest people have to work at it, because once you find that true match, you will be that much more grateful for the journey you took to find them.” ~ Reese

This book was positively hilarious!! It’s told in three points of view – Reese’s, Paisley’s and Bellini’s – and that was one of the things I loved most about it. Bellini was so outrageous, but the things that came out of her mouth, the thoughts that ran through her head were so crazy, she truly was that train-wreck that you just couldn’t look away from. No joke, I probably came up with a hundred or so hashtagable comments, or Bellinisms as Quinn refers to them. I was dying to to tweet them out, but not wanting to spoil the awesomeness, I restrained myself. It wasn’t easy.

“There are two types of girls in this world. Girls like me, who have men draped across their feet, wishing and hoping for one sniff from their very sought after lady-garden. And then there are girls like you. … Girls who flap their dilapidated garden gate open for any kind of attention…” ~ Bellini

I’ve read a few of Meghan Quinn’s books now, and I am seriously a fan. This woman’s sense of humor is pure romcom gold! This is the good stuff, folks. The beverage-shooting-from-your-nose, tears-streaming-down-your-face, foot-stomping, doubled-over-holding-your-sides kind of humor. But Quinn is more than just a comedic genius, she also gives great romance—and smoking hot sexiness—here. Reese was a totally swoon-worthy hero, and I adored him in his all-alpha-male glory. Paisley was as smart and sassy as they come and totally not bowled over by Reese’s fame. The two of them together were absolute romcom perfection. They smoldered, they smoked, and they sizzled in pursuit of this sweet romance. Well written, smartly hilarious and wildly sexy, this steamy romance nearly sent me to the pool to cool off a few times, not to mention that all that taco talk left me weirdly craving Mexican food…

Gah! I loved this book! I am praying to Pope Francis at every available altar that the very talented Ms. Quinn will give us Hollis and Bodi’s stories and that she’ll do it soon! Without any hesitation, Meghan Quinn and her swimmingly sensational Stroked get five whimpering, witty and wet smooches from me!

Man of Honor – Excerpt

“The bottom line – and once again, no pun intended – is I think you might have overstayed your welcome in my home, Ezekiel.  Much like the smell of fish, unwanted guests begin to stink after the third day and you’ve been smelling something fierce for a while now,” she informed him primly, clasping her hands in front of her waist as she stared innocently at him.

“Now, Honor,” Zeke chided, amused.  “What would your mother say right now about that most unwelcoming attitude you have?”

“Holy crap.  He brought Momma into it,” Faith whispered violently to Harmony.

“The fool’s clearly lost his mind,” Harmony returned uneasily.

“Moron,” Aunt Orla cackled.  “Harriet, God rest her soul, woulda cut your ding-a-ling off at the root for streakin’ in her kitchen.”

“True though that may be, Auntie, I think my mother would be impressed that I’ve managed to maintain my sanity for this long.  She raised me to be a good hostess, and heaven knows, I’ve tried.  But you, Ezekiel, could make a preacher cuss on Sunday.  You’ve been nothing but a demanding, domineering pain in my derriere since you took my house hostage.  I swear, you shadow me when I so much as wander toward the bathroom.  And when it’s not you, it’s one of your trained monkeys watching me like some kind of science experiment.  I’ve had enough!  I told you last night that I intended to come back to work and find some kind of normalcy again.  You chose to believe I’d cede to your will.  Your error in judgment doesn’t translate into being either my fault or my problem.”

“No, but willfully draining the air from my tires most certainly is,” Zeke roared.  “What if I’d gotten a call out?”

“The SUV Abel loaned me – but you STILL won’t allow me to drive – is parked in the garage.”  Seeing the look of shock on his face, Honor smiled.  “Forgot about that, didn’t you?”

“Don’t get cocky, Kitten.   I’m in no mood.  You know what this argument is really over just like I do.  You shouldn’t BE here!”

“This is EXACTLY where I need to be,” she growled back, matching his tone as the two combatants faced each other.  “It’s MY business, Zeke.  That back there,” she continued, waving a hand toward the back of the restaurant, “is MY kitchen where I do MY work.  Seriously, if somebody said, ‘Don’t go be a Sheriff today, it’s too dangerous,’ you’d tell them that it’s your job and to check themselves into the nearest mental hospital.  Why do you think I’d feel any less dedicated to my work?”

“At the moment, nobody is gunnin’ for me,” Zeke snapped, rapidly losing his patience with the infuriating woman standing across from him.

“I wouldn’t bet on THAT,” Honor returned purposefully, looking the lawman up and down.

“Is that a threat you’re making to a sworn officer of the law, Miss McKinnon?  Because it sure sounded like one.”

Smiling that gentle sweet smile of hers that never failed to simultaneously melt his heart and harden his dick, Honor shook her head.  “Of course not, Sheriff.  Don’t be silly.  A threat implies that I might not follow through on things.  This is a promise from me to you, Zeke.  So, listen up,” she announced, going from the sugar-wouldn’t-melt-in-her-mouth tone he adored to the I-will-rip-off-your-dick-and-shove-it-where-the-sun-don’t-shine voice that never failed to get his blood pumping.  

“I’m all ears, darlin’,” he replied easily, propping one hand against the counter as he leaned over it toward her.  “I do love it when you make me promises.” Honor made a noise of disgust as she shot him a look that should have frozen his blood to ice, but somehow just managed to make him hotter for her.

“Get out of my café, Sheriff, and take your Redneck Gestapo with you!  And don’t forget Deputy Hightower who’s skulking back there in the corner tryin’ his best to be invisible,” she ordered, pointing at where his uncomfortable subordinate was trying to slump in a back booth.  It was kinda hard to do when a guy was over six feet tall.

“Or what?” Zeke dared her with an insolent grin.

“Otherwise, I’m gonna be forced to bring out the pressure washer and start hosing down all the unwanted pests around this place, and I promise I’ll start with you, Sheriff Monroe.”

He could tell by the set of her jaw that she was serious.  His little Kitten had become a Tigress at some point this morning.  And damn, if that didn’t turn him on, too.
