About the Book:

I have a bucket list, but it wasn’t written by me.
That doesn’t matter. I’m still going to do everything on it.
Jump from a plane… binge every episode of Friends without stopping…
And sleep with the cute guy who runs the tattoo shop on 5th and Main.
I don’t know him, he doesn’t know me. But this dirty promise is going to happen.
Lucky for me, Max Savage—what a name for a muscled guy with ink all over his body—is an easy target. The problem is that after sleeping together, I can’t scratch his name out the same way I scribbled over “Jump from a plane.”
Max isn’t done with me. He doesn’t care that I’m on a personal mission. He just wants to see me again… and again… and again.
I want to see him, too.
But it’s a bad idea because he’s distracting me. Can I finish out my plans AND juggle someone so addictive?
I was supposed to sleep with him, then move on.
Where does falling in love fit into the bucket list?

My Review:

Okay, the first thing I am going to say is To READ THIS BOOK! I know it is a shorter read, only around a hundred pages or so, but those hundred pages are so worth your time. I laughed, cried, and just couldn’t stop reading this story. I really need to write a bucket list for a couple people just in case and one for myself. This was such a wonderful idea for a book and was happy to have read this book.

About this Book:

The name on the screen was “Absinthe.”

But I knew her as the sultry voice blowing up my phone for late night chats about Proust and Hemingway interspersed between the filthiest little … mutually satisfying exchanges … I’d ever experienced in my life.

We’d never met.

Until the day she walked into my office, her cherry lips wrapped around a candy apple sucker and an all too familiar voice that said, “You wanted to see me, Principal Hawthorne?”

My Review:

Holy Crap! This book is freaking awesome. Absinthe god I love her. She made me laugh, cry and have hope for her. She doesn’t let her past get her down. And Ford man he is such a wonderful man. I could not put this book down. This is a must read book. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About this Book:

Luke Larson is friendly, funny, flirty, and off-the-charts hot. No surprise he’s my favorite person in my new city. The problem? Luke is the only friend I’ve made since moving to town. I’ve tried the whole friends-to-lovers thing before. It ended badly.

Luke’s the night manager at the hotel where I’m staying until I find an apartment. He’s been kind, helpful, even protective of me since I checked in. Walking me to my room, claiming a cute single girl like me needs a hotel bodyguard. Ordering takeout from his favorite places for us to share. Talking with me late into the night. I don’t want to lose that, so my rule is – Friends Only. But the way he sometimes looks at me with those smoldering blue eyes makes me question my rule.

Like last night after his shift ended. It was supposed to be just pizza and a movie. Nothing wrong with that, right? Except we fell asleep, and if his boss catches him in my room, she’ll fire him.

It’s hard enough to resist him when we’re on opposite sides of the front desk. Now that we’re trapped in a room with a king-sized bed, the temptation is overwhelming. And I can’t help but wonder if Luke is interested in exploring something real… or if he’s only looking for a few naughty nights.

My Review:

Great book. I love Sophie Brooks and how she brings her characters to life. This is a must read!

She is a well-known high-class socialite from the Wild and Town series. She set her latest fantasy on being the one to grace Jasper’s bed. Jasper is powerless to resist her beauty and sex appeal.

Hailey Finch works for Big Deal PR firm and received the assignment to work with Jasper to restore his public image. She learned at an early age when she lost her mother to take care of herself and those who are important to her.

Or will she find that instead, she is at risk of losing her own heart?

My Review:
This is my first Clarissa Carlyle book, but not my last by any means. This book is a really good start to a new rock star series and I am so happy to be able to read it from the very beginning. Yes, this book does end on a cliffhanger but those don’t really bother me as long as the characters and plot of the story are flowing well. And this book does all that. I am excited to read book 2 and see where this all goes. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About this Book:

290 pages stand-alone novel. Now with a new extended epilogue.
Brianna: Working as a hostess for one of the biggest casinos in Vegas, my job is simple: keep the wealthy clients happy by fulfilling their every need and desire. Happy and content so they wager their millions in our casino instead of going to the competition. That sometimes requires special “services” or favors, and with a promotion on the line, everything is fair game. Because, this is not for me; it’s for my daughter.Dorian: A bet is a stimulant more powerful than drugs or booze. No matter what you call it, there’s nothing like the rush you feel when you lay it all on the line in a single wager. Winner takes all. That’s why, my brother, Enzo, and I, make bets on anything and anywhere. It’s not the money, believe me, our family has plenty. It’s the thrill of winning…and proving to Enzo who’s the smartest. Despite craving the addictive rush, we never take it seriously. It’s all in good fun…except the big bet we made in Vegas about Brianna just got very serious
My Review:
I really enjoyed this book. I love M.S.Parker and her writing. But I have to say it was nice to have a full-length novel by her and not have them in multiple books. Now about this book. Brianna is a working mom that is over coming her past when she falls for a high roller in the casino she works for. While making sure he and his brother have everything they could ever want in Las Vegas her and Dorian become closer than either expects. Dorian, on the other hand, has alternative motives. He has a bet going with his brother Enzo and he means to win it. I really enjoyed both of these characters and the pain they caused each other felt real, which in turn the joy they brought each other felt just as much real. So I would highly recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a good emotional book. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About this Book:

I used to watch my sister’s jet set life style through
social media with her billionaire husband.
A man she met and married in less than 30 days.
18 months later he’s standing on my doorstep with
a box of her things and a story I can barely believe. Carter Jones. A name I never wanted to hear again.
I’d met him once. The night he took my sister out while we vacationed in Italy.
Twenty-four hours she was leaving with him for good.Sure, he was rich and gorgeous and impossible to resist,
But he’s my brother-in-law.
Or at least he was.Until my sister up and disappeared with a million dollars of his
Money… and a whole lot more.
My Review:
I did enjoy this story. The characters are strong and the story was good. I did find it a little hard to believe when the wife comes back from her Italian “vacation” that Carter would just roll over and let her do what she wanted. I mean here is a guy that built a billion dollar business and he is letting this woman walk all over him for MONEY. He can always make more, so that bothered me a little. But other than that it is a pretty good book.

About the Book:

My life. My way. Until she arrives and shakes my reality to the core.

As a former MC member and the best damn bike mechanic in the state, I’ve turned my back on everything my rich family expects of me. I don’t need their money or their expectations. Screw them all. I’m doing just fine on my own.

Until the day my life changes, and I become a full-time single father to a little girl I hardly know. Her arrival creates a tailspin I don’t know how to correct.

Then I receive an offer I can’t refuse from the billionaire family I detest. I don’t like selling out by being a sex symbol for the family company, but it comes with enough money to give my little girl everything she needs.

And, then there’s my corporate babysitter/boss… wow. Ass, tits, and legs for days.

Maybe I can do this father thing. This corporate thing. This lover thing.

If being this close to my family doesn’t destroy me first.

My Review:

What a wonderful story.

Sean is trying his best when it comes to his daughter and his life. His ex-wife wanted him out of his daughter’s life after everything that he put her through and he respected that. He worked for everything he had and never went back to his family for the millions that they have.
But when his ex-wife dies and he is now responsible for the daughter he has no relationship with he finds that he just might do things he normally wouldn’t do.
Taylor just wants to do what is right by the Yates family and if that means bringing in the youngest Yates to help work the advertising then that is what she will do.
These two have some issues to work out and once they do, they just might have some great chemistry.
This is a story of loss, love, redemption, and some great sex. The family is a complex thing and Alice really brings you into this family dynamic. I loved it.

Abut this Book:

On paper, I’m a firefighter.
But my real profession?
F*cking girls until they scream my name.
I’d never really noticed Molly Peters, the shy, chubby friend of my obnoxious little sister.
Until one day she walks down that street, dressed to kill.
Her voluptuous curves and that s*xy a$$ are begging me to take her.
She’s so damn forbidden, but I want a taste of her.
And when I learn that she’s a virgin, I pledge that I will be the only one to claim her.
I have no time for love.
A night of fun where I get to pop her cherry is not a bad idea after all.
I will teach her things that she’s never known before, take her to places she’s never been before.
But Molly’s trying to teach me a thing too.
Wait…I said I have no time for love.

My Review:

3-3 1/2 stars.

Okay, so I read an advance readers copy for my honest review. As the synopsis says it is about a bigger woman and a hot man that now wants her all of a sudden.
Molly has very low self-esteem of herself but has always had a huge crush on her best friends brother who is a real d*ck to her and everyone else. I can say Alex does treat everyone like crap, not just Molly. And I really tried not to feel sorry for Molly, because why feel sorry for her just because she is a plus size woman. I mean she should be treated the same as everyone else by him. And yes woman that are bigger usually have lower self-esteem and we look at ourselves differently. BUT I wasn’t enjoying the way Mia portrayed that in this book. I have read books with bigger girls as main characters and it is stated and on the story goes. But it seemed to be the main thing in this one. When it came to Alex like I said he needs a new personality and finding the right woman seemed to do that, and sometimes it does.

Would I recommend this book: yes
Would I reread this book: no

About this Book:

Auctioning off my innocence isn’t the craziest thing I’ve ever done. Well, it was, until the high bidder turned out to be not one, but TWO billionaire brothers.

One’s a smooth devil in a business suit, and the other is a devil-may-care bad boy. Their smirks, their voices, their touches make me feel intense, unfamiliar urges, conjuring up wild fantasies that shouldn’t make me shiver–but they do.

So… in for a penny, in for a pounding, I decide!

Dominic and Jacob Stone will pay off my crippling student loans (and then some), but there’s a catch. They want to catch me, and start a family!

My Review:

This is a great book. A young woman in desperate need of money decides to sell her virginity. When she gets an email from someone and after a few conversations they decide to meet. Finding out that there is more to this man than meets the eye is a lot to take in. But Evie finds that sometimes the best things come with complications and need love.

About this Book:

Here I am. One of only two residents left in an entire building block in Lower Manhattan. A developer has managed to buy out everyone else except me and the manwhore in the apartment next door.

I say manwhore because:
1. He’s the hottest thing I’ve seen on two legs. (it shouldn’t be a reason but it kinda explains reason number two)
2. The screams of ecstasy coming from his apartment on a regular basis.

On the day I find out my boyfriend is a worthless, low-life cheating jerk, I get too drunk too care with my bestie and manage to lock myself out of my apartment. Then…I’m not exactly sure how it happened, but I accidentally/purposely kissed the manwhore.

Turns out, sex on legs, six-foot and four inches of hard muscle is a hot-shot businessman who’s used to getting what he wants, but I’m not going there. No way.

He’s not going to make me scream.

He’s not getting into my bed, or my heart.

Even if he is so outrageously irresistible…and he’s somehow become my fake boyfriend!

My Review:

Omg, I LOVED this book. I couldn’t put it down. Mimi is such a great character in this book and I hated to see what Josh did to her. And Max I mean omg we all should have a Max in our lives. These two play off each other so wonderfully. I loved the story line and how there was a story and not a butt load of sex.

About this Book:
My dad said the boy was trouble and I didn’t listen.
Now, years after Aiden broke my heart, he suddenly reappears–everywhere.
He shows up in the strangest places. I can’t seem to escape him.
Worse still, I don’t want to. Even if I still hate what the boy did.
I’m afraid I’m falling all over again for the man he’s become.

Ten years ago, I waited for my boyfriend all night at our usual place. He never showed up, not even when the diner closed and they shooed me outside to wait in the rain.

Trying to get over Aiden was more painful than a root canal and more difficult than my med school classes. But somehow I managed to put the shattered pieces of myself back together.

One thing I still haven’t done? Fall completely in love with another guy, the way I fell for Aiden. I’m sure I will, though… eventually.

Then, without any warning, Aiden starts showing up everywhere: at the mall parking lot, by the slot machines in the casino, and even at my sister’s wedding rehearsal. Oh, we also happen to be new medical interns at the same hospital.

Seriously, what is happening?

I mean, a part of me is still fuming over what happened in the past. But I can’t deny I’ve always wanted to see Aiden again. He’s looking good. Real good.

He used to be a tall, lanky kid. Now, he’s a solid wall of muscles, with a smile that could melt hearts (and panties). Despite his humble beginnings, he’s also a young doctor with a bright future ahead of him.

As our worlds collide, secrets come tumbling out. We learn the chilling truth: with every secret kiss we share, we’re risking everything–our careers and our families.

I know I should stay away from Aiden. The stakes are too high. But what do I do when love keeps leading us back to each other, again and again?

My Review:

Again is a second chance story about two young lovers that find each other again at a family/friends wedding. Aiden never thought he would see Aubrey again so when his best friend gets married to her sister he can’t believe his luck. Aubrey, on the other hand, can’t believe this hot guy is the same lanky boy that she loved when she was younger. But both Aiden and Aubrey want to figure out how they lost each other 10 years before.
I do like second chance stories and this one is really no different. An overprotective father trying to take over his daughter’s life by keeping the “bad” boy out of her life. The daughter allowing or ignoring that this is going on and then acting like it is no big deal. The “bad” boy turning into a hot guy with a great future. Wanting the girl to choose him and not the family.
Would I recommend this book, sure. It is a good book. I liked the characters and the book is well-written. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About this Book:

I thought he was a player…how could I have possibly known what he really was?
Rosa

With those searing whiskey eyes, chiseled face, and cocky attitude it was pretty obvious he was a player. Ordinarily, I would have been able to resist him, but it was my best friend’s wedding, and I’d had a lot of alcohol, so I thought, what the hell. At the very least he’d have the skills, and judging by that huge swell in his pants, the equipment to give a bridesmaid a good time.
Of course, we used a condom, actually, a few, but one month later I’m sitting on my bathroom floor looking at five pregnancy sticks all lined up. Each one telling me the same thing: Girl, you’re pregnant.
Clearly, he won’t want to know, being a player and everything, but my best friend says telling him is the right thing to do.

Looks like I’ll have to go to Italy to give him the bad news.

Dante

I wasn’t asleep when she woke up that morning and crept out of my hotel room. For the first time in my life I didn’t want a hook-up to leave, but that made me more determined than ever not to see her again. I liked my carefree life too much.
I left England and flew to Monte Carlo. The big plan was to hit the casinos and lose myself in other women, but I got back to Italy and simply couldn’t forget her.
A month later out of the blue, she swans back into my life to drop her bombshell.
I let her slip away once. I won’t again. This time I’m doing the unthinkable. I’m going to limit myself to just one woman.
I’ll show her I can be the perfect daddy.
This woman and the baby in her belly are going nowhere.

My Review:
I have yet to read a book by Georgia that I have not devoured. This is yet another hit by her that I could not put down! Rosa and Dante are hot for each other from the very start, you can FEEL it as soon as they start talking to each other. But as soon as Rosa shows up a month or so later to let Dante know that his life might change (if he so chooses) their relationship doesn’t just go straight to the bedroom, they really start to become friends but Rosa doesn’t just back down to everything Dante wants. This is a great give and take kinda of relationship based book. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review. And I recommend everyone to read this awesome book.

About this Book:
What happens when the matchmaker meets her match?
Better question: What doesn’t happen?

A small town is the last place I ever thought I’d find myself, but I’m desperate to save my failing business, and a mysterious client makes an offer I can’t turn down.

She wants me to match her with the man of her dreams, and if I pull it off, she’ll pay me more than I can imagine.

But when a cowboy everybody calls “Country” welcomes me to town with a “get lost” and a side of drop-dead gorgeous, well, things get a little more complicated.

I mean, what kind of woman wouldn’t go following a guy like that back to his ranch? And what kind of woman wouldn’t go marching up to tell him off, even if he was shirtless?

Between my insane client and my inability to stay away from the cocky cowboy, I have my hands full.

And Lucas Tate, the man my client wants? It turns out he’s also my cowboy.

I never thought I’d see Makayla Pierson again.
Then I was assigned to protect her.
One week. No touching. Absolutely no sex.
Just seven days of restraint…
How hard can that be?

When I walked away from Makayla ten years ago, I swore I’d never look back. So did she, after the haunting lie I told her… But it was the only way to keep her safe and as far away from me as possible.

She’s better off without me. I don’t care if I’m broken without her.

But years later, when I’m hired by her agent to act as her bodyguard, I can’t keep myself away, especially when I learn how much danger she’s in.

Now she’s mine for a week, and I’m not going to let anything happen to her. Even if she seems intent on making my life a living hell. She always did know how to hold a grudge.

She doesn’t have to like me, she just has to follow every single one of my commands.

There’s only one thing I’m not sure I can protect her from.

Me.

My Review:

I really enjoyed this book. Jesse and Makayla were high school sweet hearts but went their separate ways. Not something Makayla wanted but was forced upon her.

About this Book:

One playboy billionaire. One gorgeous virgin. One deserted island…

The moment I lay eyes on Kendra Baxter, I know she has to be mine.

But the daughter of a Navy SEAL doesn’t take orders. She’s been taught skills, strength and integrity. And god, that’s hot.

So I do what any powerful billionaire CEO would do — I take her on as my intern and plan my aggressive takeover.

Only, fate has other ideas.

My perfectly laid out plan of attack is flawed, and our plane crashes on a deserted island.

Here, who I am doesn’t matter. Money and social power don’t matter. I’m not a CEO anymore. I’m just a man.

Something’s different, I’m different. I still want to claim her, but now I want to protect her too.

We are locked in a fight for survival, and maybe more.

And I will do anything and everything in my power to protect her and make her mine.

My Review:
I LOVED this book. I could not put this story down. Kendra doesn’t take any crap from Eli and I loved it. Kendra not falling right into Eli’s arms and bed kept this book going. The back and forth between these two kept me laughing and going with this book. Eli is a pain in the ass sometimes in this book but he is a rich man that has never been told no. So finally when a woman tells him no and sticks with it, he has no idea what to do. She wants nothing that he has, but his knowledge of how he makes his business run successfully. So when the two of them get stuck on an Island together things happen that just might come together.

One virgin.
Two weeks.
Twenty billionaires.
She can run, but she can’t hide…

The Chase. It takes place every year. If you’re not invited, you’ll never even know it exists.
It’s a game – a Chase – entered only by the world’s richest and most powerful men.
And one, lone, solitary woman.
A virgin.
Winner takes all. Literally.
But our prey isn’t as innocent as she seems – she’s CIA trained, and kick-ass strong.
And she gets paid $250,000 for every day she evades capture.
Sounds simple, right?
If only it was.
When I entered, it was because I was bored of easy lays and easier women.
But suddenly Cassie is back.
She’s the girl who stood me up at prom – who I’ve spent my entire life proving wrong.
And the girl I never heard from again.
But Cassie’s not a girl anymore. She’s most definitely a woman.

And maybe she’s not just the one who got away…

My Review:

This book is an interesting concept. A bunch of men- rich bored men, pay a butt load of money to chase one woman that has a background of hiding in plain sight for two weeks, where in turn she will receive a set amount of money for each day she is not caught. Who can really say no to that on either side?
The minute I started reading this book I was intrigued and drawn right into the story. There is a mystery, fun characters, lots of wonders and a great story.

About this Book:
He’s gonna make sure he’s her first.

Ryan Scott is big, bad, and he has a body made for sin. When he leaves the SEALs and heads home to D.C., the first person he wants to see is his best friend, Poppy Baker. Just to be around her, of course… nothing funny. Their friendship isn’t like that.

Except… one look at the beautiful blonde and he starts to question how he never thought of her as more than just a friend before. Ryan likes to imagine how it could be more. It doesn’t hurt anyone if it’s just in his head.

When Poppy starts to give him that look — the seductive eyes, the pouty lips, the head cocked just so — he can’t help but imagine bending her over and taking her right there. How her eyes would close, her breasts would bounce, and the noises she would make…

Ryan has to get his act together, because that’s his best friend he’s thinking about. They have a long history together and he can’t lose her friendship. He won’t risk it.

But once Ryan has a taste of Poppy, she’s all he can think about. She’s a walking, talking fantasy… and she’s only a hair breadth away… One wrong move could take what he values most.

My Review:
I loved this story. Vivian brings you right into the world of Poppy and Ryan who have been friends since they were just little kids. When Ryan comes back full time from the military and finds that life is a little different when you hang out with your best friend as an adult. Poppy loves Ryan always has and always will, but as a friend nothing else. So when friends start asking questions, and answers are not what she expects from those answers Poppy starts questioning her relationship with Ryan.
I love how this is a slow burn love story with friends to lovers. There are some triggers in this book (domestic violence) for Poppy and her family. There is some wonderful friends and not some good people in this story.

A problem of the medical kind which so far no member of the male species has been able to counter.
They just can’t… well…
They just can’t get it in.

That’s why I’ve been on Dr Big’s waiting list for hell knows how long. They say he’s the best. The right man for my condition.
Only Dr Big’s professional opinion isn’t quite the verdict I’ve been hoping for. And neither is his supposed treatment plan.
You see, Mr Big doesn’t think I have closed vagina syndrome after all.
He thinks my lady parts are in fine working order and it’s my head that has the problem.
Dr Big is a cocky, arrogant jerk. A beautiful jerk who thinks a real man is all it will take to solve my issue.
Dr Big is wrong and I’ll prove it.
It’s no big deal. He’s hot and I’m desperate to lose the v status.
No big deal at all until he drops his pants…

Dr Big isn’t just big.
He’s absolutely huge.

My Review:

God, I loved this book. To have a wonderful night with a man that doesn’t expect anything from you and even walks you to the door and gives you a peck on the cheek. Then the next day finds out that that wonderful man is your doctor who is supposed to help you with a really personal issue.
These characters are wonderful and the story is great.

About this Book:

I tell myself every day is a second chance.
But since I left the SEALs, I’ve been drifting.
So when some record exec offers me a hundred grand to protect some innocent pop star?
I say f*ck yeah!
The catch?
I’ve gotta pretend to be her boyfriend.

Xander was the only boy I’ve ever loved.
But I blinked and he was gone.
Now I’ve made it to the top. I’m going on a breakout record tour.
So StarPower Records tells me I need close protection.
And then they go hire the boy I loved. The boy I saved myself for.
But he’s not a boy any more. He’s a man.
They’re saying I need to keep him close.
To pretend to be in love.
He’s offering to stay close, all right.
But it’s not his protection he’s got me begging for.

My Review:

This is a great second chance story. Tina is surprised when her new bodyguard is her ex. This is a novella so expect a short story with a lot going on in little time.
