Blurb
Wall Street
Journal bestselling author Ilsa
Madden-Mills and
USA Today
bestselling author Tia Louise are back with an all-new romantic comedy filled
with Southern sass and steamy scenes that will have you laughing out loud and
fanning yourself. Pour the sweet tea and get ready…
“The best way to get
over your sh**ty ex-fiancé is to get under a shiny new stud…”
As soon as
Mr. Tall, Blond, and Handsome walks into that bar, I know he’s the hook-up I
need to get over stupid Cheater Kyle.
A few
stolen kisses in a dark hallway, and I’m pretty sure we’re headed for a home
run—until he disappears without a trace.
Whatever.
Men are all snakes in the grass, and I don’t need a new one anyway.
I resolve
to forget about his perfect lips (and chest of steel) and instead focus on
turning my Granny’s old beach house into a profitable B&B.
What I
don’t expect is for him to show up the next day in my kitchen!
You see, my
sexy mystery man is none other than Jax Roland, the drop-dead gorgeous home
improvement star of The Right Stud, and
he’s got an offer I can’t refuse.
With a
suitcase in one hand and a hammer in the other, he wants to move in and
renovate my old house while he films his new show.
But my
roommate has secrets, and they threaten to rip our blossoming friendship—and
possible love—apart.
When push
comes to shove, is Jax really The Right
Stud
or is he just another nail in the coffin of love?

Review:

Ashton has given up on men.  After her douche of an ex cheated on her she is finished with men.  All she wants to do is renovate her grandmother’s old home to make it into a B&B.  She doesn’t expect to kiss a sexy man on a whim at a bar who doesn’t return when he said he would.  But, when the sexy man appears on her doorstep the next day as the guy who will renovate her home she is thrown for a loop.  Jax doesn’t expect to see the sexy Ashton again.  Let alone have her effect him the way she does.  As the sexual tension simmers between them so does the things left unsaid.  Will Jax and Ashton survive the lies or will nothing get made over?

I adored this book.  This was a fun read.  Jax and Ashton were so steamy you could practically feel it through the pages.  It isn’t just them that makes this book so good.  Mrs. C, Rufus, JC van Ram and Lulu will make you laugh out loud.  This story is a mix of Property Brothers and Modern Family.  You will laugh out loud at the shenanigans of JC van Ram and you will swoon at the idea of Jax using the hammer shirtless.  You will also see the typical romance and the trials of lies and trust.  With all good stories the happily ever after will be well worth the read.  If you are looking for another great summer read with quirky characters and mouthy birds, then look no further.

Review: Even Money by Alessandra Torre

 

Even Money

By Alessandra Torre

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

Synopsis

Sometimes it only takes a minute. A connection of eyes across a room, and everything changes. I was a cocktail waitress with a fondness for partying and meaningless sex.
He owned half of Vegas, with the reputation to match. I should have turned away. Instead, I stepped closer. Then, the lies started.
Rumors spread.
Stalking commenced.
And someone died. None of it stopped me from falling in love.

Review:

Bell is just living her life.  She is going to school and working at a casino.  What she doesn’t count on is meeting Dario.  Dario is the one guy in Vegas you don’t want to be involved with or have him interested in you.  Bell does just that.  As Bell and Dario get swept up together the danger around them escalates.  Just when they could get a chance at a happily ever after their life is flipped upside down.

This was my first Alessandra Torre book.  I am hooked.  This was gripping, exciting page turning book.  The story was a fairly typical romance with the back drop of Las Vegas.  What makes this much more than that is the suspense and danger.  As you turn the page you don’t know what will happen next.  This was a great first book in this duet.  The story has a perfect mix of sexy romance and suspense.  Dario and Bell are very complex characters that add to the depth of the story.  If you are looking for a great summer suspense, this should be a go to for you.

Review: The Lies I’ve Told by J.L Berg

The next on our big day of releases is the newest book by the phenomenal, J.L Berg.  This is definitely an emotional read.  It will definitely rip your heart out only for you to fall in love with the broken hero.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

38771402Book Blurb:

Everything was going according to plan…

After years of working my way up the corporate ladder, it was finally my time to shine. I was about to receive the promotion of a lifetime.

But just like that, my life was destroyed with a single career crushing email.

Now, I am headed back home to North Carolina, under the ruse of an extended vacation to help run the family inn while my sister is on maternity leave. After all, what is family for? Plus, a few days at the beach could definitely help uncomplicate this crazy life of mine.

Enter Aiden Fisher.

Aiden is a guest at my sister’s inn. He’s wicked hot, a huge flirt and has one of the sexiest British accents I’ve ever heard. But beyond all that, I see a darkness in his soul, as if he’s carrying a great weight upon his shoulders.

I find myself pushing back my trip home to Florida in hopes that maybe I’ll look into those hazel brown eyes and finally see truth shining back instead of lies. That maybe he’ll stop running and tell me the truth for once.

But you know what they say about liars? It takes one to know one and I’ve been telling the biggest lie of all – I’ve fallen hopelessly in love with Aiden.

And isn’t that the scariest truth of all?

Review:

Aiden should be celebrating his success.  Instead the news he received makes him just want to get drunk and forget.  When he gets an email pleading for him to help out a town that he created a sculpture for previously.  He knows he needs to get away.  The email came just in time.  When he arrives he meets the very sexy Millie.  Millie is only helping her family with their Inn temporarily.  Though after her recent change she has no where else to be.  As they get to know each other, their feelings get tangled in the lies they hold onto.  Can Aiden and Millie find their way to each other?

I fell in love with this book.  It was so heart wrenching at times.  J.L Berg is so masterful in her story telling skills.  She grabs the reader and makes them feel for the characters.  You laugh with them and cry with them.  Aiden and Millie’s story encompasses all of that.  They are both at a crossroads in their life.  Finding themselves in Okracroke for different reasons feels like fate.  The journey these two characters take to take down the walls around their hearts is inspiring.  I loved that this story felt real.  The idea that no love really has a happily ever after.  That it is something that is worked for and through all obstacles.  I have truly loved all of the characters in this series.  I think though that Millie and Aiden had the most to lose and gain.  J.L Berg will definitely have you buying more Kleenex as you read this book.  With that being said….I can’t wait for the next book!

Review: In Bed with the Beast by Tara Sivec

Happy Monday!  Today and tomorrow is going to be a really busy day for me on here.  Be sure to stay tuned for some reads you don’t want to miss.  Today’s first is by one of my favorite authors, Tara Sivec.  This is the second book in her newest series, The Naughty Princess Club.  Welcome to a naughty version of Beauty and the Beast.  For my full review, keep reading after the book blurb.

38492044Book Blurb:

Meet the Naughty Princess Club, a series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that brings readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that three women fall into once they decide to strut their stuff and bring on their own happily ever after.

Living in her overprotective dad’s basement, shy Belle lives her life through books. Being a part of the Naughty Princess Club is the first adventure she’s ever had, plus she desperately needs the money to save one of her favorite places – the local library.

But when her new friends and new business gets her kicked out of her dad’s house, Belle is rescued by the surly Vincent “Beast” Adams who invites her to be his house guest until she gets back on her feet. Despite his attitude problem and long list of rules, Belle finds herself warming to the muscled man with a penchant for growling and starts seeing a gentle side to him that wasn’t there before.

Yet there’s a room that Beast keeps locked and Belle keeps getting hints that Beast is hiding something…can a nerdy librarian tame the beast or will their romance be over before it has a chance to blossom?

Review:

Belle is tired of living in her dad’s basement.  Her only outlet is the library she works out of and her new friends stripping business.  Her father doesn’t approve of her new friends or their business.  Kicking Belle out forces her to live in the library.  That is until Vincent “Beast”  realizes what she is doing.  With his growling and attitude he forces her to come live with him.  They see that the chemistry between the two of them burns so bright.  Can the beauty who spouts trivia and the Beast act on their feelings or will lies force them apart for good?

I was so excited for this book.  Beauty and the Beast is one of my all time favorite fairy tales.  This was a fantastic take on the tale.  Belle is quirky and quite fun.  Beast lives up to his name.  Once the two of them really open up to each other the sexy times really steam of the pages.  Just like the previous book, the fairy tale base is essential but that is where it ends.  The characters of all the naughty princesses and their heroes are so unique, funny and entertaining.  We get to see Ariel and her mouth, along with Cindy and PJ, who have not stopped their frisky behavior.  If you are looking for a great fun sexy book for your summer reading I guarantee you that this is exactly what you are looking for.  I can’t wait for Ariel’s book next.  Tara Sivec really comes through with an entertaining story that will make you blush and laugh out loud.
