Review ~ Dirtiest Little Secret ~ by ~ Skye Jordan

What a rags to riches/case of mistaken identity (for lack of a better description) story! 
Ava is all ready to get married to a man who suits her, Matthew. There’s not really a spark but he’s “perfect” for her on paper, plus he has her parents’ approval. Even when she catches him cheating on her with multiple partners, at the same time. 
Ava is done with doing what’s expected of her and heads to a biker bar with her friend. Isaac sees Ava and is in lust with her but knows she is NOT a type to be in this biker bar. So he pushes her past her comfort zone. 
The main message with the story, don’t stereotype, because you might just meet your HEA if you don’t.

5 Stars!

Release Blitz ~ Game Breaker ~ by ~ BJ Harvey

Title: Game Breaker
Series: The Game Series #5
Author: BJ Harvey
Genre: Romantic Comedy w/ Heat
Release Date: September 22, 2017


From the USA Today Bestselling Author of the Bliss romantic comedy series comes the next book in the Game series, this time its Cameron Carsen’s turn to get his happy forever after.

*Game Breaker was originally published as “The Loop” in the Love in Transit anthology*

Every girl dreams of their wedding. It’s supposed to be one of the most memorable moments of their life, right?

But instead of getting hers, Sarah Mason is sacrificing the designer dress, the gifts, the first dance—hell, even the right groom—and marrying her best friend to help her parents out of a bind.

Cameron Carsen always had an end game, and her name was Sarah Mason. He may have taken his time coming back into her life again, but the moment he sees her on the L train wearing what looks like a wedding dress and a cloud of dread, he knows it’s now or never.

With ten hours to change her mind and explain decisions he made in their past, he’s pulling out all the stops, one step down Memory Lane at a time.

Luckily for him, he’s got history, lust, and even the best friend on his side. If ever there was a time for Cam to be a game breaker, it’s now.

“You have changed, you know,” I say as he holds out his hand, trying to hail a cab coming down the street without any luck. His eyes slide to mine. “And how’s that?”
“You’re more aware of the world around you.”

“You can tell that after spending an hour with me?” he says with a quirked brow. I look at my phone and snigger. “An hour and a half actually.” The corner of his mouth tips up.

“My apologies. That extra thirty minutes makes all the difference apparently.”

“As a man, I thought you’d appreciate any extra time you can get.”

“Never had a problem with stamina. You of all people should remember that.”

Release Blitz ~ Fix Me Not ~ by ~ Carey Heywood

Title: Fix Me Not
Series: The Fix Series Book 2
Author: Carey Heywood
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: September 22, 2017 

Paige Sullivan’s life is a train wreck. In a matter of months she lost her business, her swanky apartment, and her big city life. Now she’s stuck in Nowhere, New Hampshire, sleeping on her mom’s couch. If that wasn’t bad enough, she’s forced to do odd jobs for money. She has a plan though, and once she’s saved enough, she’s out of there. That is, as long as she doesn’t murder her sexy new employer first.

 

Asher Thompson is the ruggedly handsome hermit of the Thompson clan. Tall, ridiculously sexy despite his beard, and annoyingly aloof, his main concern is his privacy. He fills his days with his work as a carpenter and the peaceful solitude of his lake house. A peaceful solitude that vanished the moment Paige Sullivan stormed into his life, hell-bent on driving him crazy.

The problem is, opposites attract and each time they cross paths she works her way further under his skin.


“Here,” Paige says, passing me a water and a plate of fries through my window.
I’m back in the parking lot of the Moose tonight, parked right next to Millie’s Explorer.
“Are you trying to drug me?” I had asked.
She shrugs her slender shoulders. “Consider it a truce.”
I’ve finished all of the fries and am still working on my drink when she returns an hour or so later.
“Shouldn’t you be playing with your wood?”
I choke on my water.
“This your idea of a truce?” I ask, once I’m done coughing.
“Humor me,” she says, leaning against my door. “You hired my mom so you wouldn’t have to leave your land. Now you’re leaving it every day to stalk me. What gives?”
My head jerks back. “I am not stalking you.”
She presses her lips together before a bubble of laughter escapes. “What would you call it?”
I frown partly at her question and more so at the way she’s acting. “Why are you being nice to me?”

SERIES: Hot in Hollywood, book 1

RELEASES: Sept 19, 2017

PUBLISHER:  Amazon Publishing

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

COUPLE: Cora & Jack

TROPES: Reunited Lovers

SYNOPSIS:

Once upon a time, Cora Landers was America’s Sweetheart and destined to be the Next Big Thing in Hollywood—but that was before her sex tape ruined her image and eliminated her contracts. These days, instead of being an A-lister, she’s divorce attorney to the A-listers. So when her ex—and fellow sex tape star—Jack shows up, needing her expertise, she wants nothing to do with it.

Jack McArthur might have costarred in that sex tape, but he didn’t share Cora’s fate—instead of tanking his career, the tape skyrocketed it. Now, as one of Hollywood’s most buzzed about new directors, Jack has everything to lose—especially when he wakes up after a friend’s bachelor party gone wrong to find that he’s apparently married a woman he’s never met before…and now can’t find. Desperate, he goes to the only person who he knows can help—Cora.

Cora reluctantly agrees to help Jack—both because he’s offering an absurd amount of money and because she loves seeing him as a disadvantage for once. Neither of them anticipate the very real problem of their being unable to keep their hands off each other—or that Jack’s accidental marriage might be anything but accidental. With both her heart and career on the line—again—Cora has to decide if she’s going to take the high road or leave Jack hanging in the wind the same way he left her twelve years ago.

TBRreview

This was a quick read novella that kept me interested from beginning to end.

Cora and Jack have a history, a sex tape history. While it lead to Jack’s career taking off, it trashed Cora’s.

Fast forward 12 years later and Jack is in need of Cora’s help and maybe a replay of 12 years ago? Cora got away once, will she make it a second time?

A great read that prepped me for the next book in the duet, Animal Attraction.

PUBLISHER:  Amazon Publishing

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

COUPLE: Brooklyn & Levi

TROPES: Enemies to Lovers

SYNOPSIS:

A private investigator might not be as glamorous as Brooklyn James had expected, but it pays the bills. Or at least it used to. In dire financial straits, she no longer has the luxury of saying no to jobs if she wants to pay her bills—which is how she ends up in a tree, spying on a billionaire who’s accused of dognapping. Not her finest moment.

Levi Turnbull made his fortune by creating tech that melds exercise with video games. It sounded great at the time, but now he’s got more money than he knows what to do with and he’s bored out of his mind waiting for the next game to launch. When he realizes a neighbor has been neglecting his dog, he takes matters into his own hands—by taking the dog. If he’s been trolling the neighbor ever since with hilarious fliers around the area… Well, he’s only human. When he finds a pretty redhead trespassing on his property in search of the missing dog, he sees the ultimate distraction until the launch.

Brooklyn initially agrees to a date in order to get close enough to Levi to find evidence of his dognapping—but that motivation gets complicated when they end up in bed together. She’s unable to resist his charm, and as they grow closer, Brooklyn can’t avoid the truth—not only did Levi steal a million dollar dog…he’s in danger of stealing her heart, too.

I LOVE LEVI!!!! He’s nerdy and big and burly and loves animals! He’s perfect for me! Err, Brooklyn I mean…

Brooklyn is hired by a man to find his dog. Although he knows who has the dog, he just needs proof to get his dog back.

Levi meanwhile saved a dog and he knows why Brooklyn is there but he’s more interested in getting her into his bed but not to find his stolen goods.

I love Katee Robert’s stories and this series is perfect! Not too long, or too short, but a full, funny story!

She’s Cold. He’s Hot. When they get together they burn. 

Evaleen Bechmann is too busy running Human Resources for the billion-dollar company, Mimir, to even consider dating. As for emotions, she refuses to discuss that
too. It doesn’t matter anyway. She’s invisible to men, especially one man in particular. Evaleen is fine with that. Not everyone gets their happily ever after, that’s only for novels.

Edgar Mirmir is a Nordic god to some, a tech-savvy genius to others, and to women – he is everything they desire. His life should be perfect, and everything he has ever dreamed of… only it’s not. One woman haunts him. 

When he first saw her, her electric blue eyes shone with defiance, fear, and sorrow. He
wanted to reach out to her, but she disappeared. Until one day he turned around
and there she was.

Excerpt

I turned back to end this conversation. “Listen, Chewie—”

“Albert. My name is Albert.” He leaned closer and he wrinkled his forehead in such a way that made it obvious he was fishing for my name. He can keep on fishing because that was on a need-to-know basis. My mother always said, “Evaleen Bechmann, you are being paranoid,” but in the age of the Internet, giving him my name could be as powerful as giving him a knife.

In a way, I felt bad for Chewie-Albert. The poor guy obviously never learned how to deal with a woman. He believed groping me and refusing to take the hint that I didn’t want to go out with him was normal. And that’s just sad he’s so
oblivious.

“Okay, Albert. You seem like a nice, if not, handsy Star Wars . . . purist. You got a
killer costume that any other Star Wars purist of the female species would love—”

“I hear ya.” He winked, nodding as his eyes perused my form.

Sighing, I realized in that moment the Wookie wasn’t getting it. I shouldn’t be surprised, every man I had met hadn’t gotten it. They touched and they took, but they didn’t understand. That’s why I avoided them. Preferring to remain alone.

“I am not that female, Albert. I am the type of female who chooses to not dress in fur costumes, or skimpy princess costumes, or costumes in general. This female just likes to stand in a line and be left alone. So, good luck finding your princess, but I am as far from a princess as you will find around here.”

His shining brown eyes dimmed as my words began to sink in. Before he could get any more
Wookie courage, I turned back to find the blonde still at the counter.

Normally, I left people alone because, unlike Albert, I respected their space. But
surviving on only three hours of sleep before an interview for a job that I needed, action was necessary.

Taking a step forward, I tapped the blonde on her bulbous shoulder and took a breath.

“Excuse me, Miss, but I believe it has been ten minutes, which is plenty of time to order your drink. Some of us don’t have the luxury of time, and were kept up by our roommate doing gymnastics in bed with her boyfriend until four
in the morning.” I gritted my teeth and shook my head trying to get back on point. “So, if you wouldn’t mind placing your order and letting the rest of us have a turn . . .”

Just as I finished, the woman turned to face me. She had a beard. Also, an Adam’s apple.

The woman wasn’t a she but a he. He had a beard, lush and blond like his long hair, not
fake and matted like Albert’s costume. His eyes were the most beautiful gray, like smoke rising from a smoldering fire. They slid over my face.

I shivered.

“Miss?” His deep, velvety tone came out thick as butter and rendered me utterly catatonic.
The timbre of his voice like a sonic boom under my skin. His skin, on the other hand, remained still, smooth, and my fingers, for reasons I am attributing to lack of sleep, twitched to touch any part of him.

His eyes widened at what I could only assume was disbelief. Disbelief that a woman of twenty-six years would be referring to a fine specimen of a man, a manly man if you will, as a woman. Despite his thick blond mane and skirted attire, he was all muscle.

I realized this man was in costume too, like Chewie. Only this man was dressed like the
Scottish hero William Wallace and not a sweaty sci-fi version of Sasquatch. He even painted his face blue and white.

One would think that a tall man with thick muscles and a wild painted face would instill
fear in me, but no. Instead of running in terror, I did the opposite. I laid my hands on him. My fingers caressed his chest working their way down. Doing the exact thing I just lectured Albert not to do. I should have probably stopped.

But I didn’t.

Never in my life had I taken advantage of anyone in this manner but he gave off some
pheromone that screamed sex me with your hands. Sensing quickly how firm his chest was it propelled me farther down, down to his abs. The man had a six-pack or maybe even an eight-pack; whatever pack was hiding under that brown threadbare piece of cashmere was making my heart race and lady parts start to
turn savage themselves.

“What are you doing?”

He was still there and I was still in the coffee shop. This wasn’t a dream. The kilted blond’s voice broke me out of my self-gratifying pawing and I realized I was feeling him up, or down as the case may be.

What are you doing, Evaleen?

I froze before snapping my hands away. I began to smooth out my unwrinkled brown blazer as if I wasn’t a chest molester and nothing out of the ordinary just happened.
Clearing my throat, I tried to salvage what little dignity I had left.

“I . . . I . . .” Was all I could get out before I turned to look at the raven-haired barista who either had a rare eye condition that caused her to shoot fire at anyone she laid eyes upon, or she hated me right now. I was going with the
latter, so I turned my gaze to the line of customers who had their phones turned up to face me as they filmed what had been occurring. Including Albert.

Great, not only am I mortified, but I will now be some viral Internet sensation known only
as, The Woman Chest Molester.

Now it was the kilter’s turn to tap his foot as he folded his thick, strong arms in front of himself in protection from the mad chest molester. He’ll probably tell tales to his future kids and grandkids of the crazy chest molester. “Be wary of her,” he’d say in a low warning with his dialect suddenly turning from American to
Scottish. After all, he was dressed as William Wallace.

As he crept down to their eye level, and as
the window panes would rattle from the storm that swirled outside his Scottish
castle, he would whisper, “For if wee girls and boys don’t do as they’re told, the wiry fingers of the deranged chest molester will grab hold!” The kids would cower, holding their blankets to their little faces; one girl would begin to
cry as he wrapped his powerful arms gently around her tiny frame in comfort.

He’d calm her as he broke out into an old Gaelic tune.

I start humming out loud the only Gaelic tune I know, which wasn’t really a Gaelic tune but it’s Scottish, so close enough.

The barista interrupted my musical display, “Is that ‘I Would Walk 500 Miles’?”

I frowned in shame at what I had become in these past few minutes.

“Blue eyes,” the kilted blond mumbled as he stared at me.

Review
Romcom at its finest! The Cake Love series is hot, funny, sweet and just a bit nerdy which makes it an awesome read overall!

Evaleen is a busy bee and blends in to the background and she’s perfectly good with that. She does her job and no one takes notice of her. Including her hot boss, CEO of the company she works for.  

Edgar has a dream life: millionaire playboy who doesn’t wont for money or companionship. Except for the one that got away. When suddenly, there she is!  

I love the laughs in this book! You’re reading and laughing because how can you not while reading it? Buckle up for some laughs while you read this one!

Title: One Call Away
Author: Emily Goodwin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Tropes: Small Town Romance, Second Chances Standalone

Release Date: September 21, 2017


Chase Henson doesn’t play by the rules. He doesn’t let himself get attached, doesn’t stay in one place long enough to call anywhere home. So when he returns to the small town of Summer Hill for the first time in years, the last thing he expects to find is a reason to stay.

Sierra Belmont is lost. After a sudden loss that left her heart broken in a million pieces, Sierra is just barely getting by. Burying herself in work at Summer Hill’s only bookstore, all she wants to do is make it through another day.

And then Chase comes in to buy a book. Rumors that he’s dangerous fly through the town, but Sierra isn’t afraid of him. He might be the last person she should be with, but he’s the only one who understands the depth of her pain. For the first time, Chase stands still, fighting the desperation to mend Sierra’s broken heart. 

Always running, the past has never had a chance to catch up to Chase. But there’s a first time for everything.

Colleen MC (The Book Lover) – “….captivating read and one that has made it into my list of 2017 favourites.”


Julia (The Romance Bibliophile) – “One Call Away was sweet, sexy, and utterly addicting, and one of my TOP FAVORITE romances of the year.”


Kelly (Kelly’s Nerdy Obsession) – “Emily writes beautifully. Her words are like a piece of art.”

TBRreview
EVERY time I went to read this, Charlie Puth was in my head. And if you say it’s not, well I’m a bit jealous.  
Sierra has had it rough; we’re introduced to her just as she’s finding out her fiancee is dying. So immediately your heart goes out to her. She’s having a hard time accepting that the man she was going to be with forever, is gone. I can’t imagine what that is like for her.
Chase is back “home” because his father is dead. The black sheep son of a truck driver’s infidelity is home, thanks to his half brother. But he doesn’t feel like it’s home for him until he meets Sierra.  
A sweet, heartbreaking and uplifting story and definitely one for a re-read!
