About His on Demand:

To make my dream come true I’ll do anything, even put up with an asshole like Leandros Kaplan. Four years, five tops and I’ll have enough money saved to stop working and write full-time. I know lying to him to get the job is crazy and stupid. It’s as crazy and stupid as the requirement for his new assistant to be married. I’m not married, and I’m not like his past assistants, the ones who dropped sexual innuendo daily and then would hand him their underwear when he asked for reports. I’m a freaking virgin at thirty-one. 
I swear I never thought I would fall for him, it doesn’t matter that he’s a gorgeous Greek god billionaire, he’s also a jerk who takes pride in being ruthless and cold-blooded. He’s so out of my league we don’t even play the same game. He’s into dating double zero models. There’s no way he would ever be interested in a plus size like me.
When he finds out I lied I’m not surprised he wants his pound of flesh, I’m surprised he wants it in the form of my flesh, naked for him. The retribution he demands is me, whenever, however, he wants my body. I’ll give it to him, everything he demands. He doesn’t want my heart or tears, only I can’t stop giving him both, and it’s slowly tearing me apart. Can he ever forgive me for lying or will that one lie be the end of us?
REVIEW 

Man, I loved this story. His Demand by is the story of Leandros Kaplan “Leo” and Alexandra Clark “Alexa”.

Alexa is in a horrible job and is talked into lying to get a “better” one which is to be a PA to Leo. I say “better” because it is more demanding, hard, and such but with better pay. But Leo is demanding and hard to work for. But he wants someone who is married and won’t put any sexual demands on him. Leo is tired of all his PA’s having to quite or being fired because he is so good-looking.

But when Leo finds out that Alexa has been lying to him about being married all hell breaks loose. Will Leo be able to get over Alexa lying to him?

From the first page to the last I was hooked. This will not be my last Fiona Murphy book, that is for sure! I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

About Scoring with the Wrong Twin:

Shy, awkward Sophia Cruz has a hard time telling her vivacious identical twin “no.” But when her sister begs her to swap places for a modeling shoot, she caves … again. Then Zephirin Black walks onto the set. The brooding, aloof, and gorgeous tight end for the Washington Warriors. But she can keep it professional… She has to. Because the adorable Cruz twin has no luck with guys once they compare her to her sister.

After a bad break-up, Zeph hasn’t been big on second chances—and even less with trust. But he finds himself giving please-call-me-by-my-middle-name-Sophia both. The woman he’d dismissed as a spoiled cover model is different from the first time he met her. Quirkier. Funnier. Definitely sexier. What started as one night turns into another…and another…and another…

Still, Sophia can’t go on keeping her secret from him. But telling Zeph the truth will mean losing him for good.

Review Coming Soon!

About Scoring off the Field:

Tennyson Clark is getting a life. First step: quitting her job as assistant to Dominic Anderson, star quarterback for the Washington Warriors, her best friend…and the man she’s been secretly in love with for years. But since the gorgeous, if overprotective playboy has only ever seen her as his BFF, she’s finally ready to relinquish her tattered fantasy and move on. Enter steps two and three: new job and new man.

Football is Dominic’s life, and with his contract soon up for renewal, all his focus needs to be on the game. But Tennyson—dependable, logical Tennyson—is making that next to impossible with her mysterious new job and her sudden interest in online dating. He doesn’t do relationships. But the thought of another man touching her sexier-than-hell curves has him suddenly wanting more from his best friend.

Indulging in hot, dirty, what’s-my-name sex with no strings and lots of benefits is simple, uncomplicated…until it’s not.

REVIEW
    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
For my first Naima Simone book, I have to say I loved it! Friends to lovers are one of my favorite types of books.
This one is wonderfully written and the characters are great. I love when I can laugh out loud with a book.
Dom is a great guy. He is a football player and does everything so that he can stay the best. But he also makes sure that his life is better for his best friend Tenny so that he can pay it forward as it is.
Tenny follows Dom to Seattle when he is drafted there and becomes his PA. While doing that she gets two degrees and is still in love with Dom (secretly) but keeps having her life circle around him. But now is time for her to make a life away from him. So when she announces that she is quitting and starts really dating, Dom freaks out. What will he do without his best friend?
Great story! I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.
About Scoring the Player’s Baby:

After a divorce from her cheating football player ex, PR whiz Kim Matlock would rather drive a pine tree through her walled-off heart than work at the Seattle Wedding Expo. And the last thing she expects is to be grabbed and kissed breathless by a hot giant of a man looking to fend off a stalker. She doesn’t want emotional entanglements, but she can’t say no to one scorching night with the sexy stranger.

To her shock, she finds out afterward that a) he’s a pro football player, aka her kryptonite, and b) she’s pregnant.

But nothing could have prepared her for his response..

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

#ScoringThePlayer’sBaby #NetGalley

So I have read Scoring off the Field and loved it, and I could wait for this book. But for whatever reason, I kept getting distracted and missing this one. But I finally found the time and was able to get to it. Man, I wish I had found time earlier. I loved this story. It made me laugh, cry, and laugh some more.

Kim is a woman that is a year out of her divorce from a dick of a football player. He cheated on her and made her feel less of everything. She has a history of men walking away from her and she is just so tired of it. But she doesn’t have the spirit or fight in her to make a change.

When Ronan sees Kim at a wedding expo he knows he wants her. So when a stalker shows up he uses Kim as a block and gets to kiss her. They trade numbers and he lets Kim set the pace. When she decides to get a hold of him that night. They both use each other to forget their past. Little does he know what that one night might bring.

Ronan is a wonderful character. He has a lot going on in his life, but he makes time and effort with Kim even when she tries to push him away. He might not want love any more than she does but sometimes you don’t always get what you want.

I loved this story and am happy to have read it. I can’t wait to see where Naima brings us next.

About Deep:

She didn’t just bring me back to life. She brought me back to living.
You think you know my story, but you have no idea. How could you? I cover my tracks well.
After a hellish past, I’ve got a good thing going being hired at Blake Security. I’m one of the good guys now…protect and serve and all that jazz. Kicking ass and rescuing damsels in distress – all in a day’s work.
Then I discover *this* damsel is not that innocent.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is a great start to a new duet. This is Rafe’s story and I will say it is a stand alone. I have not read the Shameless Trilogy and don’t feel like I missed a lot. I will read it later though.

Rafe is a civilian now and working for his brother in laws security company. He is lying low and making the most of his ‘retirement’ when he meets Diana.

Diana has been hunting Rafe for a better part of a year. She is convinced that he killed her innocent father and she is going to make him pay for it. So when she sets herself that she needs help, and he goes beyond that and offers his home to her. They are now stuck with each other and the very real and hot chemistry they feel for each other is too much for either to ignore.

Loved this book, and can’t wait to see how it ends. Although there is no real threat in this one, I feel the next book will have some in it. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About Deeper

The plan was never to fall in love… The plan was to avenge my father’s death.
Hell, I knew better. Never fall in love with the mark.
For ten years I have plotted and planned my revenge against Rafe DeMarco. He took the most important thing in my life away from me and I meant to return the favor.
Except, I was wrong…
Now, I need his protection. And I’m the fool who went and fell in love.
The best laid plans and all.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This is the end of Rafe and Diane’s story. Deeper picks up where Deep ended. Diane had just learned about her family and what she thought she knew is nothing compared to what she found out.
Rafe finds Diane missing with things from Rafe’s safe. What did she take and will he ever find her and save her from herself?

This is fast passed, the story was strong and the characters kept things going well. I did enjoy this story and the final chapter.

Duet 2: Where We Ended

About Where We Began

I’m a hostage.
The food is fancy, the carpets are lush, but this bed isn’t mine. I’m only here because of my father’s enemies.
I hate all of them. Except for him.
The first time I meet Dominic Bradley, he saves me without a second thought. This kind boy is nothing like the rest of his family. Our friendship comes easy.
When he leaves for six years it shreds my soul.
It’s nothing compared to when he comes back.
He’s turned into a hardened soldier with hungry eyes; a man that makes my heart race.
A man that wants to hate me while also aching to be my first kiss. My first everything.
He acts like we’re enemies, like he’s forgotten our past. But I can’t.
It’s impossible to forget the moment I fell in love.
I know where we began.
I’m not sure where we’ll end.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Where We Began is the first book of the Duet out by Nora Flite.

We meet Laiken and her family at the beginning of this book. She is young, carefree and free-spirited. But when she and her sister come home and there are strange people in her home telling her that someone will be taken that day, her or her sister, she freaks out. One of the sisters must leave the family to make sure that the father stays in line.

When Laiken gets to her new home she meets Dominic, the son of her new “family”. They become fast friends when nobody wants them to. But the family makes sure it doesn’t last long. Dominic is made to leave for military school within a month of the meeting.

Fast forward 6 years. Laiken is ready to head home to her family, Dominic is coming home and life seems to be coming together. Then all hell breaks loose.

This is a slow-burn, on the darker side, but not to dark, twisted to become a love story. We end on a pretty big cliffhanger and I really have no idea how or where Nora is going to go with this story. But I am intrigued and can’t wait to see where she goes.
I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About Where We Ended

Laiken has finally heard the dark rumors about me.
Everyone who hears runs away. But she can’t.
She’s trapped here, in my house–with me.
Each minute we’re together I’m driven to swallow her up. To see if the electricity that moves between us will grow or vanish. I thought we were falling in love. Now, I’m sure that she hates my very existence.
But when she glares at me… I see a flicker of desire in her blue eyes. The way she fixates on my mouth reminds me of how filthy we’ve been.
How filthy we could be.
My father has warned me to stay away from her. He knows she’s become my weakness. All my life, I just wanted to be the perfect soldier for him. To do everything he asked so he’d be proud.
I thought I could.
Laiken is doing her best to prove me wrong.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What a wonderful ending to this twisted love. Not only do we see the final to Lakin and Dominic’s love story but there is so much more to everyone’s story that it will blow your mind.

Lakin is holding on by a thread at this point. Her sister is finally with her. Dominic secret is out and Lakin is trying to wrap her mind around it. But as always, Dominic’s family needs her to find her father and will do anything to make it happen.

This is one twisted family and the secrets are deep. I loved it.

Duet 2: Cheeky King

About Cheeky Royal

All they want is everything they can’t have.

Penny…

Yes, yes, I’ve heard the rumors.
The prince is royal, and cocky and has a—well never mind about all that.
The problem is, he’s also my job.

When the King called on me to retrieve the wayward prince, I was ready to walk away.

Then I caught my boyfriend cheating—and suddenly leaving never felt like a better idea.

Sebastian…

I never wanted the throne.

When I left behind my gilded cage of a palace, it all sounded so simple: find my long-lost brother & make him the prince so I don’t have to rule the kingdom like my father expects.

Then I meet my new neighbor, and quickly realize I’ve found the queen of my heart—and bed.

Just one problem, I can’t let her find out who I really am.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I really enjoyed this story. Nana Malone is becoming one of my go-to authors!

This story is a refreshing story of the royal meets commoner and finds love. Sebastian is a prince with reasons of not wanting to be the prince anymore. SO when he is told that his father has two other children out there he takes it upon himself to go find them. He is hoping that maybe one of them will want to take the spot of King or Queen when the time is right.

Len is a Royal Guard. It isn’t her dream job, but something that comes with being in her family. So when the King asks for her to follow his son and befriend him to stay close, she is pretty sure she is not the right person for the job. But after having her heart-broken she decides to take the job.

These two (Sebastian and Len) do have a history, but Sebastian doesn’t seem to recognize her. But it has been years. Len and Sebastian do have some wonderful chemistry in this story and it is a great story. There is some mystery surrounding Sebastian and the ending is just WOW. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

About Cheeky King

What good is a King without his Queen?

Sebastian…

I never wanted the crown, but now it’s mine.
Instead of my freedom–instead of her.
But even though she’s not mine to keep, I can’t seem to stay away.

Penny…

The moment he became king, I knew we were over.

Now I’ve returned home some kind of conquering hero.
If only they all knew that we’d both lost our hearts.
If only I could stay out of the royal bed.

What good is being cocky if you can’t get what you want?

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
So Prince Sebastian is now King and we all know he never wanted that. He is totally upset at Len when he discovers she lied to him about who she is/was. Len decides she needs to be away from the palace and goes back to New York.

These two are of course meant to be, so Sebastian and Len will get back together but there is a murder to figure out and a kingdom in the way. Will these two be able to stay together or will other things get in the way?

I enjoyed the first one, and this one brings everything together and adds a hint of mystery with the King dying and Sebastian trying to find who would do such a thing.

Another great story by Nana Malone whom I happy voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

About Going Down Deep

I’ve only loved one man in my life.
Gavin O’Leary.
He destroyed me.
Not because he loved me.
Not because he hated me.
But because he had no idea who I was.

He was the popular guy with the chiseled abs, dark tan and perfect hair.
The type that only dated the perfect-ten cheerleader.

I was the nerd who hated high school and couldn’t wait to say goodbye.

The last thing I expected was to see him again twelve years later.

Only this time—he notices me.
This time—he kisses me.

This time saying goodbye to Gavin O’Leary might destroy me.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Yes, this is a shorter book by Jordan Marie. But it is a wonderful story. A story about young love never dealt with and when the two meet again things are a lot different. Casey is trying to make her way through Hollywood doing makeup for the actors.Gavin is stunt devil to his friend Aden when he bumps into Casey. These two are wonderful characters and I loved this story.

About In Too Deep:

I did a really bad thing.
I’m not a bad person, I swear.
I just made a few mistakes.

Mistake number one was agreeing to rent my hotel out to an insufferable a**hole, named Aden Smith.

Mistake number two was ignoring his threats to sue me when he handed over a list of items he deemed “unacceptable”.

Mistake number three was saving his life when he fell. It would have been less complicated to hide his body.

When the hospital refuses to let me know how he is, I panic. Claiming to be his wife might be my biggest mistake yet—especially when he believes me!

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

As always Jordan Marie brings the most emotions out of her writing. I laughed, cried, and was plain mad at Aden and Holly at times. We met Aden in the last book and we knew or should have known that he has some major issues with trust and women. Not all the time together but some major issues all the same. So when he goes to hide out in Idaho with one of the only people in the world that don’t know who he is things take a weird a turn.
Holly has a lot of things in her life going on and having some entitled man show up and treating her like crap is the last thing she needed. So when she finds herself in a little bit of trouble she finds herself lying to the one person she finds herself loving.
Yes, these two should probably not be together but they just might find happily ever after. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About Taking it Slow

A bottle of tequila
10 lime wedges
1 sexy blonde
Add in a crazy Vegas weekend
Lick and Swallow.
What do you get? A recipe for disaster.
Last night I got married.
I think.
I was drunk off my ass, so it’s not exactly crystal clear.
But I woke up with a ring on my finger, a marriage certificate, and a sneaking suspicion I had a wild wedding night.
Oh, and a bride who is long gone.

Apparently, what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay here. Sometimes it takes off running.

Now I’m chasing after my runaway bride with divorce on my mind.
What could go wrong?
Besides everything.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Oh my god, I loved this book. I love this family. I love this storyline.

Faith and Titan have one wild night, which in the first chapter you can figure out all on your own. Jordan is not afraid to describe in detail what these two do 🙂 But when Faith figures out that they are married, she hits the bricks. There is no way she is going to stay around and be told she isn’t wanted.

Titan wakes up and finds he is married but no wife can be found. But when he does find her, HAHA now the fun begins. Not only does he have to deal with Faith and her craziness if that is what you want to call it. But her family and Ida Sue. Whom we all love!

About El Malo:

Javier Estrada is the king of Mexico.
Evil. Twisted. Psychopathic.
A cruel madman with a killer smile.
And he is my boss.
My duty is to blend in, clean his home, and not make a peep.
I’ve done my job well for years.
Embedded me so deep in his world, he’s never going to get me out.
But I am this king’s worst nightmare.
Bad men like him took everything away from me.
I will never forget.
He will pay for the sins of many.
I’ll just bide my time—watching, waiting, calculating—until the time is right.
When I strike, he won’t know what hit him.
The monster who rules Mexico with an iron fist may not bow to anyone…
But I’m not just anyone.
He will bow to me.

REVIEW

I love Rosa. I mean she defends her life and everything she believes in. Taking down drug cartels is all she wants in life. So she works for the CIA and goes deep undercover to infiltrate Javier Estrada life. She needs to get everything she can on him and then get the hell out. She will do just about anything to get what she can but she will do it with honor and not get Javier’s attention.

Javier has noticed Rosa from the minute she walked into his house. But he refuses to do anything about it. She works and lives his house. But some things are meant to be. And when she ends up needing help he is there to help. Javier is ruthless and nasty. But with Rosa, he is a totally different person. I mean you actually fall in love with him. There is nothing he won’t do to protect her and make sure she knows she belongs to him.

I fell in love with this story from the very beginning of the book. I couldn’t put it down. Rosa is a wonderful character, she is strong, vulnerable, headstrong, and loveable. Javier is a murder, cartel boss, and loyal to everyone loyal to him. He loves with everything he has when it comes to Rosa.

About Sweet Spot:

Our first meeting as neighbors was screwed from the start.
He was hot. I was naked. And we had no chance in hell at ever being platonic.
I’ll be the first to admit that I live at extremes. After going ten years locked in what felt like a dysfunctional marriage, I’m now decidedly boy-free. In nearly three years I’ve had no boyfriends, no flings, no dates and no sex. For the sake of my dream career, the sacrifice has been easy.
At least it was.
Until he came along.
Lukas Hendricks. He’s rude, gorgeous, arrogant – a stone-carved wall of muscle and distraction. He’s everything I know to avoid but there’s no avoiding your next-door neighbor. Oh yeah. The man now lives three steps from me and to make matters worse, he crashed into my life while I was relaxed in the tub – mortifying to say the least and it went something like this: I was exposed. He looked. He laughed.
And then I locked myself out.
In short, Lukas Hendricks was trouble from the start. And me?
I was – for the first time in years – about to be screwed.

REVIEW

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So I was offered this book through Hidden Gems and I am so glad I got it. This is such a freaking awesome book that I was upset when I had to put it down to do something else. This book sucks you right in and doesn’t let you go. I loved Lukas and Lia, and their chemistry is off the chart. These two made me laugh, cry, hot, and root for them. And I really enjoyed the secondary characters as well. This is a must read! And it won’t be my last Stella Rhys novel!

 

About Bad Boss:

He was supposed to be my first and only one-night stand.
He was definitely never supposed to become my boss.

I had always been the good girl – the workaholic with every second of her life mapped out to a tee.
Then I got trapped in an elevator with Julian Hoult.
He was… irresistible. Sophisticated sex in a crisp white shirt. His voice alone dropped me straight to my knees. What was I supposed to do?
Well….
I can tell you what I was definitely not supposed to do.
I was not supposed to run into him ever again. I was not supposed to be desperately unemployed, and I was definitely not supposed to accept his dirty little job offer.
But I couldn’t resist.
As CEO of the Hoult Media empire, Julian will stop at nothing to get what he wants. So for his next venture with Manhattan’s most lecherous billionaires, he’s hired me to play the role of bait. And while my official title is that of Executive Assistant, my actual job requires low tops, tight skirts and flaunting everything I’ve got till his clients are easy to bend – till they can barely think for themselves anymore.
It’s sleazy and wrong. Against everything I’ve worked for. But with Julian as my audience, I can’t help but enjoy every second. Thanks to him, I’m embracing the bad, and I swear…
I’ve never in my life felt this damned good.

Review Coming Soon!

About Dirty Deeds:

Growing up, we hated each other.
Now, we’re f**kin’ roommates for the summer.

ALY

It’s been twelve years since I’ve seen him, but loathing Emmett Hoult still runs in my blood. Thanks to the hell he wreaked on my teenaged life, I’ve avoided the prick like the plague. But desperate times call for desperate measures, and after a fire destroys my apartment during the most important week of my life, I’m suddenly as desperate as they come.
Hence the roommate situation.
It’s his summer home. His family said he wouldn’t be around. They said I’d never run into him.
But oh, did I run into Emmett Hoult.
And in the worst way possible.

EMMETT
I didn’t expect to see her ever again, let alone the way that I did.
But now that she’s back in my life, I’m not screwing things up. She still hates me — I know that — but it won’t stop me from chasing the only two goals I’ve made for this summer.
Making things right.
And making her mine.

REVIEW

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I loved this book! Two people that were friends when they were younger had a falling out. Aly and Emmett were rivals as children. But only to themselves. And even though they thought themselves rivals they still stayed friends. But when something bad happens Aly blames Emmett and things fall apart.
 
Years later Aly needs a place to stay and Emmett’s mom offers Aly Emmett’s house, thinking he will be gone all summer. So when Aly meets a hot guy at a club and goes home with him, it surprises both of them when his house turns out to be the same house as the one she just moved into.
 
These two have the hots for each other now, and a lot of history to get over. Will they both get over the hurt they put each other through?
 
I did read the first book with this family in it, missed the second one, but didn’t feel like I was missing anything. I will go back and read the second book just because I want to. Great book. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.
About Hothead:

He’s the hottest player in Major League Baseball, the most notorious playboy in all of Manhattan…And my fake fiancé for the next three months.

I was drunk-dialing my ex the night I met him.
Six-three, sexy as sin and so incredibly rude I could smack the asshole smirk right off his face. Long story short, we got off to a bad start. But when the tabloids interpret our sparring as Drew Maddox “groveling” with a “mystery brunette,” his agent presents us both a proposal:
Shacking up as a couple this summer. It’s an alleged “win-win.” I need to prove to my ex that I’m fine.
Drew needs to prove to his team that he’s stable. Thanks to his on-field brawling and never-ending lady drama, Drew Maddox has suddenly found himself on thetrade block – which means he needs a fast, easy way to show the team that he’s settled down.
Hence this fiancé thing. 
Our fights are real, our kisses are fake, and thanks to the nonstop heat between us, I’m starting to mix up all my signs. But whether it’s real or fake, there’s one thing I do know:
I’m already addicted.

REVIEW

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love Stella Rhys stories!

Evie is an awesome character. She is trying to get over her ex, when she is overheard by Drew., while she is on the phone drunk dialing him. Drew decides to stick his nose where it doesn’t belong. And so begins a wonderful friend to lover story.

Drew is a classic athlete. He doesn’t trust anyone, he thinks everyone should bow down to him, and he wants to stay with his team. But he will have to be a good boy for the next 3 months or he could be traded.

So he and Evie decide to help each other. But Evie doesn’t fall for Drew’s charms. And all Drew wants is Evie. Who will win? I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

Liv loses the love of her life. And the day she is to go put him in the ground she finds out she is pregnant. Now she has to figure out what she is going to do. Adam was her whole life. So when Luke shows up to Adams funeral Liv leans on him for support.

Luke was Adam and Liv’s best friend all through high school. Luke is in love with Liv but Adam got to her first. So Luke left town to give Adam and Liv a real chance. But now that Adam is gone, Luke is there for Liv and to help her.

This story made me laugh, cry, roll my eyes, and finally sigh in happiness. What more could you ask for?

About Breezy:

Bree Jensen is a force to be reckoned with. She’s feisty, energetic, and isn’t afraid of speaking her mind. She’s also a clumsy mess in need of a job.
When Derrick meets Bree, she isn’t just a breath of fresh air, she’s a freaking hurricane. However, even the gorgeous new girl in HR can’t make him break his one rule: No dating employees. Ever.
The only problem? Bree’s never been very good at following orders, and Derrick’s self-imposed no-fraternization policy is like waving a red flag in front of a very determined bull.
Will her unconventional tactics finally cause Derrick to toss his precious
rule book in the trash or will it cause an even larger rift between the two?

So I am in total love of Kelsie’s style of writing if you are a fan of fun-loving, clean, and non-dirty reading this is an author for you.

Breezy is such a fun loving all over kind of character. She sees what she wants and goes for it. When she finally gets the job she has been craving she finds that her boss is the someone that she could see in her bed. Too bad he doesn’t want anything to do with her, or so she thinks.

Derrick was hurt in college and has learned not to trust any woman in life or business. So when Bree starts showing that she wants more than just business. But he will not be hurt again, so no matter what she does he will stay away from her. But when she starts dating his best friend things get serious fast.

Sometimes it’s nice just to read a good lovable book with great characters that you just love. That is this one.

About Jude

When Jude is offered the position of assistant coach to an online gaming championship, he’d be a fool to turn it down. But when his celebrity crush ends up being on the team, he decides to teach her a lot more than a few gaming tricks.

Quin doesn’t date. Being the breadwinner since she was sixteen will do that to a girl. So when the sexy new British coach shows up, she refuses to be distracted. She has goals, and she will achieve them. No matter the cost.

But is she willing to lose the only thing that matters to her in order to do so?

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Every time I read another book of Kelsie I fall more in love with these characters. This time we get Jude, whom I fell for in the last book. We all knew he needed a wonderful lady that would keep him on his toes and not fall for his charms right away. Well, he found that someone in Quincy.

Quincy is a 19-year-old gamer that has more than enough on her plate. With her father very sick and she just signed her very first gaming contract she does not need a man right now. So when Jude starts showing her interest she really doesn’t know what to do.

I love the give and take with these characters. Quincy is not a people person at all. And Jude is used to getting what he wants when he wants it. These two have to learn to deal with each other to get their happy ever after.

This is a must-read story with wonderful characters.

About Rhett:

***Can be read as a stand alone***

Indie
I’ve never believed in fairy tales. Sure, I was raised with Disney movies and princess stories, but I wasn’t stupid enough to fall for them. The can’t-eat, can’t-sleep kind of love doesn’t exist. And that’s a fact.
My relationship is realistic. Convenient. Solid. I thought I was happy.
And then I met him.
My new neighbor.
The guy who’s starting to make me question everything. Making me wonder if maybe, just maybe, I could be wrong.

Rhett
I’ve never been afraid to go after what I want. After all, my job is solely based on seeing opportunities and capitalizing on them.
And then I met my new neighbor.
Our chemistry is off the charts, our banter is on point, and her body is out of this world.
So why does she turn to ice as soon as I mention a date? Even when her eyes linger longer than necessary?
She’s hiding something.
And I’m going to find out what it is.

Review Coming Soon!

About Luke:
Being in love with your best friend’s girlfriend isn’t a picnic.
And guarding a secret isn’t, either.
But losing your heart to a girl who’s clueless she owns it?
Yeah. That’s damn near unbearable.
This is my story. The one told by a guy who doesn’t get the girl.
*To be read after you’ve experienced Liv.

Review Coming Soon!
