ARC Review: Fake Wife by Stacey Lynn

f w 1.jpg
The Cover: I adore this cover! You can feel steamy the chemistry come through the cover with this couple and I think it’s a perfect cover that represents Corbin and Teagan. 

Basics: Fake Wife was released on January 9th, published by Loveswept and is 219 pages long. Genre wise Fake Wife belongs to contemporary romance. 

Description: This marriage is strictly business . . . until the temptation gets way too real.
 
Corbin: I loved my grandma, but I don’t need her money. All I care about is keeping the house—the only place that’s ever felt like home. That, and screwing over my dad, who wants to turn the property into a mall. There’s only one catch: To receive my inheritance, I have to get married within six months. Me, the guy who’s never dated a girl for more than six minutes. Now I need to find a woman I can trust. So when I’m rear-ended by a Prius, I figure it’s a sign that I’m supposed to meet gorgeous, down-to-earth Teagan Monroe.
 
Teagan: First I lose my job. Then I come home and find out—in the most graphic way possible . . . yeah, that way—that my boyfriend is a cheating jerk. And then I speed off and nearly kill Portland’s sexiest bachelor. Sterling Lane should be pissed. Instead, he offers me more money than I’ve ever seen in my life to marry him and live together in a mansion for two years. No sex. No feelings. Just cash—enough to make all my dreams come true. Then we go and break all our rules . . . and I realize I’m falling in love with my fake fiancé.

Overall thoughts: Fake Wife was such a fun and cute read! It had an interesting story that had several different aspects to it but somehow everything came together for a great romantic read. Teagan isn’t exactly living her life at the moment and Corbin is dealing with the loss of someone he loved and is being threatened to have something very dear to him taken away, so why not put these two together and see what happens?

Teagan just found out her boyfriend (the boyfriend who she’s given up dreams and traveled all over the country for mind you!) is the worst and on top of that lost her job. Not to mention the fact that she had to leave the apartment she was in because who wants to stay with their cheating, lying ex? No one! But everything changes when she runs into the back of Corbin Lane, AKA Millionaire Playboy of Portland, the man every woman wants to get their hands on. Ironically enough he’s dealing with some issues as well and once he talks to Teagan and finds out situation, he suddenly realizes that the woman who just rear ended his car might be the solutions to all their problems.

Teagan and Corbin were such a great couple and I loved reading about them. Being in a fake relationship usually comes with a different set of problems and I really did enjoy reading about how they came together all those problems. Their chemistry was deeply palpable and honestly made me want to rush through the book because I wanted to know what was going to happen to them so badly! I loved them THAT much. 

Stacey Lynn does it again with Fake Wife and I highly suggest reading this fabulous book if you love a fake love story turning into something much more real and magical!

Cover Reveal: Midnight Blue by LJ Shen

Midnight Blue, an all-new sexy standalone from LJ Shen is coming January 21st!
LJSMidnightBlueBookCover6x9_BW_324.jpg
Blurb: It should have been easy.
I needed the money. He needed a babysitter to keep him from snorting himself to death.

I was cherry-picked especially for him. Responsible. Optimistic. Warm. Innocent.
The worst part is that I should have known better.
Alex Winslow. British rock star. Serial heartbreaker. Casanova with whiskey eyes.
“Don’t get near the devil in a leather jacket. He’ll chew you up and spit you out.”
Sounds familiar? That’s because it was a headline in a tabloid the second time he got arrested.
Guess what? I didn’t listen. I signed the contract.
World tour. Three months. Four Continents. One hundred shows.
My name is Indigo Bellamy, and I sold my soul to a tattooed god.
Problem was, my soul wasn’t enough for Alex Winslow. He ended up taking my body, too.
Then he took my heart. Then he took my all.

ARC Review & Release Blitz: Prince Charming by CD Reiss

prince-charming-cover.jpg
The Cover: I really like this cover! I think it’s very eye catching and the colors look fantastic. Usually I like to see the cover model’s face but once I finished the Prince Charming I actually like the nod to mysterious cover model because it makes sense for the leading man in this book. A+

Basics: Prince Charming was released on January 4th 2018, published by Flip City Media Inc. and is 350 pages long. Genre wise Prince Charming belongs to contemporary romance.

Description:  Keaton Bridge is exactly the kind of guy a straight-arrow like Cassie doesn’t need.  For one thing, he’s a criminal—and she fights crime for a living. And being criminally handsome isn’t helping her say no, either. Everything about him screams trouble, from his British accent to his mysterious past.

And Cassie doesn’t do trouble. Keaton’s got his own trouble. He’s trying to go legit, and an FBI agent hanging around is the last thing that will help his credibility. All it took was one night of passion to sear her into his skin. Now he can’t imagine living happily ever after without her.

All they have to do is walk away. But neither of them ever walks away from danger.

prince-charming-TEASER-carved.png

Overall thoughts: Prince Charming was such a wonderful surprise for me! As for my first read of 2018 I had high expectations for this book and my expectations were definitely succeeded. Prince Charming was a dramatic, mysterious, sexy read and I was pleasantly surprised when the story wasn’t focused solely on romance. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I just want to read an intense love story about two people who can’t keep their hands off each other. But there are also times where I wish the stories were elaborated on and that’s exactly what Prince Charming did. 

In fact I don’t think the title should of been Prince Charming at all, I feel like Prince of Mystery would of work better or maybe even King of Mystery because Keaton intrigued the living heck out of me! I found myself re-reading some chapters and pages of this book because he was so mysterious and honestly I wanted to know more! He’s the perfect kind of man romance lovers like to read about: speaks with an accent, mysteriously sexy, intense and a bit possessed and most of all…not what he seems. 

Cassie makes a great heroine and I love her strength and spunk. She’s a hardworking and very relative, who doesn’t want a good job of their dreams and wants to take care of their family? Don’t we want that all for ourselves? Together Cassie and Keaton sizzle and pop chemistry wise and I actually wish there were more scenes of them together because their chemistry was so strong. The plot was strong and kept me interested, but Prince Charming really shines with the beautiful, deep connected relationship that Cassie and Keaton start to build towards one another. Prince Charming was a great way to start off 2018 and a definitely book you’ll want to add to your TBR!

About the Author:
 CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Blog Tour & ARC Review: Team Player A Christmas Anthology

Eleven authors. Eleven Novellas. This is one thick . . . book.
Christmas just became a whole lot merrier…TeamPlayerBookCover6x9_MEDIUM.jpg

TEAM PLAYER, A Christmas Anthology featuring titles by LJ Shen, Kennedy Ryan, Adriana Locke, Mandi Beck, Emma Scott, Charleigh Rose, Ella Fox, Sara Ney, Meghan Quinn, Kate Stewart and Rochelle Paige is available NOW!

Blurb: Hot jocks. We love them all. Sexy baseball players. Intense footballers. Sweaty MMA fighters, and sizzling hockey hotties. Score!

The good news? Eleven bestselling authors have gathered to give you a set of stories focused on the men we love most—sports heroes. We bet you’ll love this thick…book.

The bad news? The men in these novellas don’t actually exist.

*This anthology does not contain calories, just eleven original, never-before-seen stories by the following authors: Adriana Locke, Mandi Beck, Charleigh Rose, Kennedy Ryan, LJ Shen, Meghan Quinn, Rochelle Paige, Ella Fox, Kate Stewart, Emma Scott, and Sara Ney. We aren’t responsible for melted devices.

Overall thoughts: Team Player is definitely a big, lengthy read. 1032 pages is nothing to joke about when it comes to romance books and neither is eleven fabulous authors teaming up to create a book! I don’t know why there’s a sudden rise in sports romance books lately in the book romance world but it’s definitely a hot genre right now. Team Player fits right into what is trending too! Sports romance aren’t my favorite to read about because I like drama and such when it comes to romance and for me it seems like a little cheesy, romance and sports? How is that going to work? But that’s just for my personal opinion; saying that however Team Player has something for everyone and I think it is the perfect holiday to escape to.

It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.

A nursing student, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met.

Emma Scott: I write romances with flawed characters, characters with artistic hearts: builders, poets, and writers of various makes and models. I love to write book lovers; those who have found refuge, companionship, and escape in books, much as we do in real life. I like realism, honesty, authenticity in storytelling. I love to write about enduring love, soul-deep love, in as real a setting as I can make, but with big smooshy HEAs. I believe in diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion. I like sweetness mixed with steam, love conquering all, and above all, hope. Love always wins.

Meghan Quinn: A BLONDE AT HEART. 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!

Release Blitz: What the Hail by Lani Lynn Vale

Title: What the Hail
Series: Hail Raisers
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Day: December 14th

Whatthehail6X9.jpg

Synopsis: He’s wanted her since he repossessed her car and made her cry.

Baylor Hail knew two things. One, he hated crying females. Two, it was even worse when he was the one to make that female cry.

He never meant to do anything but his job, but when one thing leads to another, suddenly all he can think about is the broken woman whose car he towed.

She’s wanted him since he patted her back and told her it was okay to cry even though she knew he was lying.

Nothing ever goes right for Lark.

Not when she got married. Not when she tried to leave her abusive husband, and not when she arrived in a new town with a fresh, clean slate.

That clean slate came courtesy of a secret organization that specializes in helping abused women find a way out.  They set her up with a whole new life. It just turns out that it happened to be right smack dab in the middle of another woman’s old one.

That woman also happens to be down on her luck, something that Lark learns the hard way when on her first day there, her car is towed by a handsome stranger.

It’s been two years since she’s felt any kind of sexual attraction toward a man, and she reacts badly.  We’re talking full-on, hysterical breakdown as he loads her car onto his tow truck while looking at her like she’s lost it.

Maybe being crazy isn’t all that bad. The next thing she knows, she’s spending time with the sexy stranger and life couldn’t be better—even though she still doesn’t have a car.

She thinks she’s in the clear, that she’s got it all figured out… well, that is until her ex-husband finds her again.

Now the ball is in her sexy stranger’s court as he decides whether or not her kind of crazy is worth getting killed over. Turns out, for Baylor Hail, maybe it is.

TheBritishKnight.Ebook (1).jpg
The Cover: I love this cover and I think with the model front and center with the London background, it looks fantastic and very eye catching. A+

The British Knight.jpg

Description: When I’m offered the chance to leave New York to live in London for three months, I can’t pack my suitcase fast enough. As soon as I touch down I’m obsessing over red telephone boxes, palaces and all the black cabs.

But my favorite place is the tube. It’s wall-to-wall hot British men in suits. When I’m offered a temporary job working for a barrister, I say, sign me up.

On my first commute into work, it’s a total accident when I lose my balance and fall against the most handsome Brit alive. He’s as charming as James Bond and as suave as Mr. Darcy. I want to lick tea from his hard abs and listen to his accent all night long.

Turns out Mr. Handsome is my new boss. And his attitude isn’t as hot as his gorgeous face, broad shoulders and tight ass. He’s brooding, short-tempered and the most arrogant man I’ve ever met. As we’re fighting, out of nowhere he kisses me. And I’m pretty sure I see fireworks over Big Ben and hear God Save the Queen.

I wasn’t looking for the fairy tale but I might have found my knight in shining armor. The problem is he lives an ocean away.Release Day Blitz-2.jpg
Overall thoughts: I completely adored The British Knight! It was such a pleasant surprise! Violet and Alexander have this electric, fun and sexy chemistry and they are an absolute joy to read about. I loved the story and Louise Bay does a fabulous job of creating characters that you can immediately relate to. Violet wants a fresh start and a do over while Alexander is working hard to live up to his father’s name and livelihood. Last but not least, love always seems to find us in the most unexpected places and that aspect plays a huge part in The British Knight and honestly I could gush about this book for hours. I adored it. Louise Bay definitely has a new fan and reader!

Cover Reveal & Excerpt: My Kinda Mess Lacey Black

Title: My Kinda Mess
Series: Summer Sisters book 4
Author: Lacey Black
Release Date: January 16, 2018

mess_amazon.jpg

BlurbAll her life, Lexi Summer has dreamed of one thing: to become a mother. As the youngest of six, she’s accustomed to the chaos and camaraderie that comes with a big family, which is why she has been anxious to get a jump on this next phase in her life. She thought she had it all: the perfect house, husband, and future. Until one secret rips it all apart.

Nothing in Linkin Stone’s life has been easy. Raised by a single mom, working two jobs, and helping with his much younger twin brothers which keep him on his toes, and working two jobs. He busts his butt to right the wrong of someone from his past and keep the ones he loves safe. He doesn’t need anyone or anything. But that all changes the moment he meets his sexy, feisty neighbor, Lexi.

When fates collide, two people on separate paths suddenly find themselves traveling the same road. Could an easy friendship turn into something more? Or in the end, will their decision kinda create one big mess?

*Though part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone. It is intended for those 18 and over due to graphic language, descriptive sex, and the world’s most inappropriate grandparents.

Excerpt: When the door is closed, I turn my attention back to her. “So, that was the husband, huh?”

“Ex.”

Stepping forward, I invade her personal space. Her eyes are alive with fire, but not in the way they were moment ago with the douche. No, her eyes dance with a heady mixture of excitement and lust as she glares back at me. “Watching you tear him apart and eat him alive was so fucking hot,” I confess, touching the side of her cheek with the side of my finger.

Her gasp echoes in the hall, invading my soul and filling my mind with dirty images. Ones of her and me, naked, and making little noises just like that. “I hear cold showers work wonders to help cool you down,” she suggests with a smirk.

“Are you joining me in said shower?”

“Not in this lifetime, bucko.”

“Shame. I’m sure you’d really know how to turn up the heat in the shower, firecracker.” Again, I touch her face. I can’t seem to stop touching her. She should probably run in the other direction, fast. Hell, I should run the other way as quickly as possible. The last thing I need is a woman clouding up my brain, distracting my focus from helping my mom.

But I’m just a man.

A man with urges and needs, and those are directed at this little spitfire of a woman who makes me want to turn all caveman on her and throw her over my shoulder. I bet I could extract another of those sexy little gasps if I were to swat her ass.

Plus, throw in the fact that she’s technically married. That point alone is enough to make me want to look away. But I can’t. I’m drawn to her, like a moth to a flame. This desire I felt, even after only a brief meeting several weeks ago, clearly isn’t going away anytime soon. Not when she stands there with fire dancing in her eyes and a sadistically little smile on her lips. Oh, this woman is trouble, and I’m going to get burned.

“Well, whether that’s true or not, I guess you’ll never know,” she quips, my brain picturing exactly what she’s look like naked in the shower. Of course, having my eyes glued to her ass when she turns to walk away helps those images. A lot.

“Maybe,” I reply with a smile.

“No maybe,” she fires back, turning her attention back to me. Or at least I think she turns it back to me. I can’t tell. My eyes are still focused on the same spot her ass was just occupying. When I glance up at her eyes, I swear I’m scolded from the heat.

“Stop looking at my ass,” she chastises.

“It’s a nice ass,” I defend, refusing to look away from those hypnotizing green orbs.

“You’re impossible.”

“You like me.”

“No, no, I don’t. You’re…annoying and impossible and just like rattling my chain.”

Stepping closer yet until I can smell the scent of her lotion and see her throat bob as she swallows hard (a result of my nearness), I say, “You. Like. Me. You just don’t know what to do about it.”

Rolling her eyes, she fires back, “Don’t be so sure of yourself. You’re not that likeable.”

Lexi reaches back and finishes unlocking the door. Before she steps inside, she pauses, making my heart skip a beat and my boner stand up and say hello. “Thank you for helping me get rid of him,” she says softly, without turning and looking my way.

“Anytime he gives you trouble, come get me.”

Before she can slip inside and disappear on me, I reach forward and touch her arms. My gut tightens as my fingers dance along smooth, soft skin. I’ve never had a reaction like this to a woman. Never. So why her? Why this little hellion in heels? She’s already given me sleepless nights and wet dreams and I don’t even know her. I should stay as far away from her as possible, but if I know one thing about myself, it’s that I love a challenge.

And Lexi Summer is that challenge.
