About Dirty Promise

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?

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 Absinthe:

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?”

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 Black Velvet

A dark billionaire. A disillusioned beauty.
…and the twisted game of seduction she can’t resist.
She is paid to lie and seduce – but I don’t want her insincere moans and fake smiles.
My investment in the elusive Velvet Rooms holds a promise for more.
And I always get what I want. Always.
No man ever made her scream and beg for release. A release that remained unattainable for her.
She claims I’m asking for the impossible. I will prove her wrong.
Because I know it’s not her body that needs to be conquered – it’s her mind.
But our relationship rests on unsound footing, a contract and nothing more.
And when my actions turn reckless, the vulnerable agreement may be our undoing…

 

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

There isn’t anything that Linnea May can’t write. This is a spin-off of her Violent Series. Welcome to Velvet Rooms where all your dreams come true.
Elene works for Violent Delights and is tired of it. She just can’t get into it anymore. So she goes to her boss and tells her she is done, she wants out. But that is when Elene finds out that there will be a new business opening up and Elene will have the option to be an Angel or a Devil. You can figure that one out. 🙂
Damon is a VIP to Violent Delights but has yet to find the one woman that he wants to keep for a while. But when he goes to the meeting with madam at Violet he walks into Elene. It isn’t for 6 months at the opening of Velvet Rooms that he finally sees her again.
This is a wonderful story of almost cat and mouse. Damon knows he will lose interest in Elene as soon as he has sex with her. Elene is used to giving the man anything and everything they want. Too bad Damon wants the real her, and she doesn’t know what that is. I loved this romance! I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About Blue Velvet:

I’m the heir to an empire, but I left the army as a broken man. A dangerous man.
I should stay clear of her. She’s too fragile, too broken herself – and too beautiful to resist.
Worst of all: She wants me to take her.
But where she seeks solace, I seek sanity.
The Velvet Rooms provide our sanctuary. A place of safety, bliss and unbridled play, untainted by the clamor of reality.
Here, there is no sight.
There is no sound.
Only skin against skin.
Testing. Claiming.
Our fondness for the absence of sound and light is what binds us.
But it is also the biggest danger lingering between us.
Because the madness always finds me. Even in the darkness.
And this time it may be too late to stop the beast from destroying everything.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Another hit by Linnea. Although this one is a bit different. This story deals with PTSD and how BDSM can become involved in the lifestyle.
I really enjoyed this story like I always do when I read one of Linnea’ s books

About Red Velvet:

I’m too much for her. Too rough, too demanding, too proficient.
But she doesn’t know that.
So why should I stay away?

Lila doesn’t want another nice guy. She’s tired of being the good girl.
She wants something new – someone to push her boundaries.
She wants me.
Naive and curious, she looks at me with that voiceless yearning in her eyes, piercing and pulling until I can no longer resist.
Oh, little girl, be careful what you wish for.
You will submit to me, you will bend to my will and my belt will bite your skin until it blossoms in all shades of red. My restraints will cut into your wrists just like my command will carve into your soul.
But you’re not ready for it, are you?
Your past keeps reaching out to you, still holding a firm grip on the girl who is trying to break free.
You need a resolve – and you need it soon.
Before I break every last part of you.

About Kings of Rittenhouse:

About Shameless King:

Newsflash! Makenna hates my guts. Too bad I can’t get her out of my head…
Declan McAvoy. Voted Biggest Flirt. Highest goal scorer in Kings of Rittenhouse Prep history.
Everyone’s impressed, well except one person…
After a blow out in high school, Makenna Halstead and I were happy to never have to cross paths again. Except life has a way of knocking you straight in the teeth with a puck when you least expect it. She hasn’t just returned to my life, she crashed into it like a wrecking ball…into my college kingdom, into my class, and smack dab into the seat next to mine. My new lab partner to be exact.
For years we hated each other… I may be King on the ice, but she is the Ice Queen. She has no problem calling me out, doesn’t back down, and her piercing blue eyes have me picturing more than than just my arms wrapped around her.
Now we’re stuck with each other and there’s no getting around that fact that we have to work together. My hockey career hangs in the balance. Problem? Oh, yeah.
I can’t deny it. I want her. More than I ever thought I could want a woman. I’ve got one semester–only four months–to convince her everything she thought about me was wrong.
Will my queen let me prove to her I’m the King she can’t live without?
Only one way to find out…

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I love Maya and her stories. I have yet to find one that has not touched me in some way. Shameless King is an interesting read. This one is a slower read for me. This story starts in high school and then heads to the end of college.
Declan and Mak are not friends in any sense of the word in high school. But they want each other, they just can’t have each other. There is just too much keeping them apart. Social pressure, their own issues, and friends.
So we jump three years to the last year of college. Mak is back in town and is finishing school and runs into Declan. When they are made to work together it takes everything she has not to freak out. Declan is not someone that she thinks is trustworthy when it comes to school work.
Declan needs to ace this class or he will be kicked off the hockey team. And he will do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen. But when it comes to working with Mak he doesn’t know if he can do it. She is to stress, doesn’t like to have fun and takes everything too seriously.
But sparks start flying when these two finally start showing their feelings. But will they both let their past and future get in the way of their feelings for each other?
So I want to say that I enjoyed this story, I really did. But it gave me different feelings. I liked both characters but at the same time, I wanted to slap them. But I guess it is their age. I am hoping that Maya gives us more of these characters and that Mak and Declan are there also.

About Reckless King:

New Rule: Stop chasing unavailable women! Women just like my new TA…
Heath Taylor. Laid back. Easy going. Fastest guy on two skates and chill to a fault, at least that’s what they say. Until Kara.
Three nights together and I’m done for. Her laugh, her smile, the way my hand curves around her waist. She’s the one. Not a doubt in my mind…until I walk into my last class of the semester.
Kara, the woman of my dreams, is my new instructor. My hockey season and her career prospects are on the line. One false move–if anyone finds out–we’re both sunk.
On the ice I’m a beast that can’t be stopped, but thoughts of her are throwing me off my game. My fingers itch to feel her in my arms again. But risking everything could ruin what we’ve worked so hard for.
Life has a way of changing the best laid plans. And sometimes you can’t stay away no matter the promises you make…

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
What a great second book in these Kings of Rittenhouse books. I loved Heath.
Kara is in the process of getting her professor degree. She is Heaths TA in his independent study class. These two have heavy chemistry. When their emotions get in the way of school what will they do?
Again I loved this story,

About The Billionaire’s Bet

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
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 Confess:

One contract. Two signatures. A marriage of inconvenience.

Gypsy

Lucian West isn’t husband material. He’s a stiff in a suit. Granted a hot one, but still. He’s one of the most hated men in America. An arrogant asshole. A ruthless attorney.
He gets what he wants in the courtroom, and outside of it.
Now, he wants me.
For reasons I can’t fathom, he’s determined to make me his wife.
He makes it clear he’s not above blackmailing me to put a ring on my finger.
The man might be richer than sin with devilish good looks, but hell will freeze over before I ever give my heart to him.

Lucian

I don’t do love. I don’t even do relationships.
But all of that changes when I stumble upon the tragic, beautiful woman confessing her sins in the dark of night.
She’ s supposed to be nothing to me. Nothing but a wife. Her smart mouth drives me crazy. Her attitude brings out the beast in me. I want to protect her. I want to bring her to heel. I want to own her pretty lips.
She belongs to me, she just doesn’t know it yet.
I’ve already made her mine in name. Now it’s time to claim the rest of her.

About Callback

I had a reputation and he had the solution.

I thought I was done with Hollywood.
Done with acting.
Done with scandal.
Done with all the lies this industry thrives on.
Then I met him…
Jude Fisher.
A man who knows what he wants. A man who doesn’t accept no and demands more from me than I know how to give.
It started out as a way to prepare for the role of a lifetime. But as it gets closer and closer to the audition, I don’t want our scenes to end.
He makes me want him when I thought I had built an impenetrable wall around my heart. He makes me trust him when I thought there was no one left in our industry to trust.
But it’s all just an act … right?
It’s all just for the callback.

 

REVIEW

What a great story! Callback brings two unlikely people together for a movie about BDSM. But when the scarlet that is the front-runner for the lead doesn’t really know what she is getting into, the leading man decides to help her out.
This book is such a well-written story that I couldn’t put it down. I loved the chats and the storyline. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

About Cry for You

You know how the story goes. Don’t you?
Boy meets girl. Eyes lock, they fall in love, live happily ever after.
Not this story.
Lacey baby, was what he called me. He said I was too young for him but who cares, we were both young. He stopped resisting and we fell in love.
I thought we were going to be forever. We were. Until the unthinkable happened savagely ripping through us, ripping us apart, and forever turned in to never.
He was gone. I was left to pick up the shredded pieces. Punished for the life inside me I couldn’t give up. The very thing I didn’t know would bring me out of darkness years later, could be the very thing that brings us together again for a second chance.
If we can only survive the ripple effects of the pain of the past and what lies ahead…

REVIEW

Holy crap. This is my first Shaniel Watson book, but she is now one of my favs!

I don’t think I have cried during a story this much since Pet by Isabella Starling. This book is so emotional. But Shaniel did a great job with the issues that she decided to deal with. The back and forth from then and now was beautifully done. I loved this story!

About P.S. I Hate You

Dear Isaiah,

Eight months ago, you were just a soldier about to be deployed and I was just a waitress, sneaking you free pancakes and hoping you wouldn’t notice that my gaze was lingering a little too long.
But you did notice.
We spent a “week of Saturdays” together before you left, and we said goodbye on day eight, exchanging addresses at the last-minute.
I saved every letter you ever sent, your words quickly becoming my religion.
But you went radio silent on me months ago, and then you had the audacity to walk into my diner yesterday and act like you’d never seen me in your life.
To think … I almost loved you and your beautifully complicated soul.
Almost.
Whatever your reason is—I hope it’s a good one.
Maritza the Waitress
PS – I hate you, and this time … I mean it.

 

REVIEW

Oh my god!! I loved this story!! This is such a wonderfully romantic story. I couldn’t put it down.

Maritza is a fun and free spirit. She meets Isaiah at the diner she works at. When he turns into such a jerk she writes him off. But they end up meeting again and she ends up cracking into his heart a little. So they agree to a 7 day Saturday. For 7 days they will enjoy each other as friends and have fun.

Isaiah leaves after the 7 days and they agree to write letters back and forth. But eventually things happen and Maritza finds herself missing him. But life does go on.

This is a must-read for anyone that enjoys a well-written romance.

About P.S. I Miss You:

Dear Melrose,

The first time I met you, you were a stranger. The second time, you were my roommate. The third time, you made it clear you were about to become the biggest thorn my side had ever known.
You sing way too loud in the shower and use all the hot water.
You’re bossy as hell.
You make my life all kinds of complicated.
But no matter how hard I try, I can’t stop thinking about you.
Truthfully … I can’t stop wanting you.
I was going to tell you this. I was going to sit you down, swallow my pride, hang up my noncommittal ways and show you a side of me you nor anyone else has ever seen before … but then there was a game-changing confession; a bombshell so nuclear it stopped me in my tracks.
How I didn’t see this coming, I’ll never know.

About Dear Neighbor Fuck Off

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!

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 Lighter

She was spoiled.
She was forbidden.
She was untainted.
She was my job.
And…
She was only eighteen.
I couldn’t help myself.
I wanted to unravel and devour every inch of her.
She was a blue-eyed, untouched, complication, and the cost of touching her was more than I could afford.
But…
She was mine

 

REVIEW
Mila Cole is a new author to me and I absolutely fell in love with her writing style. This is an older man/younger woman story. There is a 17-year gap between Lighter and Jenson/Slick. But it isn’t such a big deal. She is older than her age when it comes to her maturity, she and Slick have an instant connection so that helps.
Slick is the only support to his niece he also just got this job to be Lighter’s bodyguard. When he meets her he thinks she is a stuck up princess and wants nothing to do with her. But he does want her.
I loved that this story is a slow burn, especially since this does have an age gap. This story turns into a true love between two adults and a sweet little girl.

About Mr. Masters

He is powerful, older and my boss, a lethal combination.
Job satisfaction has taken on a whole new meaning.
When I lied on my resume, I didn’t expect it to matter.
I mean any child would love me; I was born to be a nanny.
I applied for a position working for a woman, or so I thought.
But Julian Masters is definitely all man…the kind you dream of licking chocolate from.
The first day was bad.
The kids were the spawn of the devil and I spied through a window and caught him doing something obscene…. and equally fascinating.
The second day was worse, he caught me snooping in his bathroom cabinet in my skimpy pyjamas and all hell broke loose.
On the third day, I ran over him in a golf cart.
And by day four I had decided that I wanted that chocolate…all of it.
Melted….on me.
But intelligent, widowed Judges don’t fall for ditzy nannies.
Or do they?

REVIEW

I have never read TL Swan again but that is going to change right now. I really really enjoyed this story. It hit some social issues that are going on right now in the world but also brought a great love story to light.
Julian is an over the top father that cannot connect with his children. He really just doesn’t want to, to be honest. That is why he hires a nanny. Julian has a history with love that is horrible. He wants nothing to do with it and that really does include his children. He will give everything for them but show them, love.
Enter Brielle the new nanny. She isn’t like the last ones. She open, honest, fun, and full of love. Something these children need. But so does their father. Julian doesn’t know what to do with Brielle.
I loved watching this family become a family. Even when Julian fights it. He puts Brielle through hell a lot of the time. And what Willow has to go through breaks my heart. In the end, it all works out for the best, but man what a journey.

About The Heir

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.

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 Miss Matchmaker
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.

About
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.

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. So ten years later when she is in need of a bodyguard and Jesse walks back into her life, things get a little more complicated for the young starlet.

About The Island:

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.

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 who 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.
This is such a wonderful love story that starts out slow and works you to a wonderful ending. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About The Chase
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 with 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…

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 His Virgin:

Whatever she wants, I want it ten times harder.
My name is Elijah Scott, and I’m going to be your next president. I’m a rich, ripped, and ready to conquer the campaign trail. When it comes to women, I’m not looking for anything serious. Not now, not ever.
Until I see Meredith.
The sweet little blonde with curves in all the right places. One look into those beautiful blue eyes, and I can’t help imagining how her hips would fit just right in my hands.
I’ll never forget the secret she whispers in my ear: she’s never been with anyone before. She’s a temptation I can’t resist.
She’s fresh out of college, just twenty-two years old and on the campaign trail with me… as a reporter. One leak exposed by Meredith, and my entire future goes up in flames.
As my secrets pile up, I can’t stop fantasizing about Meredith. She’s dangerous, a risk I can’t afford… but her taste, her voice moaning my name over and over… I can’t stop. Worse, I don’t want to watch her walk away.

About His Best Friend’s Little Sister:

His best friend’s little sister is about to get something… BIG.
Henry Wyatt is big all over, ripped as sin, and fresh out of the Navy SEALs. When he decides to go to his best friend’s cabin for some downtime, the last thing he expects is to run into her, naked and tempting him in ways he never could have imagined.
Ellie’s his best friend’s little sister and he’s never seen her like that. Little Ellie is all grown up, with a body that begs to be touched.
There’s no way Henry should be looking at her like that, or thinking about how her body would sway just so if he turned her over and took her from behind. She’s almost ten years younger than him, and besides that, she’s Elijah’s little sister.
She’s off limits. Period. Until Ellie reveals that she’s never been with a man before, and suddenly all Henry can think about is being her first. Hell, he’d be the last man she was ever with, too… But Ellie has her own set of reasons why that could never happen.
When Henry sets his mind to something though, there’s no stopping him… and little Ellie doesn’t stand a chance.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I loved this book! Vivian Woods has such a wonderful way of telling a story. Henry and Elli are a train wreck waiting to happen. Henry has PTSD and is told he needs time away from working with vets to get his head back on straight. So he takes time away to the cabin Elli’s brother has. Elli on the other hand just found her boyfriend having sex with some woman at a club, so she runs away to the same cabin.
Henry has never seen Elli as a woman, just his best friends little sister. So when he starts thinking dirty thoughts about her, he has no idea what to do about it.
Elli, on the other hand, has always wanted Henry. He is what she has been waiting for all her life, the gold standard. So while they are snowed in, she is going to make the most of it.
This is a great story with characters that have known each other for years but are getting to know each other for the first time as more than just friends. They have some things to overcome but make it out in the ends. Loved it.

About Claiming Her Innocence
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.

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.

About His To Keep:

Nothing this fake should feel so good.
CEO Connor Cavanaugh is a man in charge. He dominates in meeting rooms and at the gym, and his sinfully sexy body is proof. His upcoming wedding is supposed to seal the deal, putting his company in the spotlight and making it rain.
That all goes down in flames when he walks in on his bride-to-be with another man.
No one can know that a woman tried to make a fool of Connor Cavanaugh.
Cancelling the wedding is the only option… until he spots a gorgeous brunette at the wedding planner’s office. Samantha. The perfect fake fiancée.
She has a body that makes him want to walk her over the threshold, but she’s sweet. Harmless. She’ll suit the position perfectly.
The only problem? Samantha has a wicked smile that keeps him up at night. Every day, she’s more tempting than the last.
He swore he wouldn’t f*ck around with his fake fiancée. He signed a contract. He paid. But the more he sees, the more he wants… too bad Sam has plans of her own.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️
Sam and Conner are such a cute couple. I really enjoyed their relationship, it was the other characters I really couldn’t get past. I liked Sam and how she handled everyone in her world. Conner had some growing up to do, especially when it came to his family. His family is a total nightmare and his ex I don’t even have words to describe her. I would recommend this book if you want to yell at the secondary characters and root for the main. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About Dr. Big

I wish I could say I’m one of those girls saving their v card for the right guy. But I’d be lying.
I’m stuck with my v card because I have a… problem.
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.

REVIEW

God, I loved this book. To have a wonderful night with a man who 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 Her Seal

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 anymore. 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.

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.
