Today I get to bring to you the newest Emma Hart book.  Her fantastic wit and storytelling shines through in this newest rom-com.  For my full review, keep reading after the book blurb.  Believe me, you will want to know more.

Book Blurb:

40499397Revenge is a dish best served cold.
Which is a real problem when the attraction runs red-hot.

Ice-cream store owner Raelynn Fortune has everything but her last name—fortune.

Despite living in a Floridian hotspot for tourists, she just can’t get her business back off the ground. And she knows why.

Her rival store next door is run by nobody other than her ex, and with his fancy-schmancy concoctions, he’s taking all the clients two generations of her family cultivated. Never mind that Raelynn taught him all he knows, and his revenge for her breaking up with him was putting her plans into reality—and her almost out of business.

But, she has a plan. The height of the season is just two weeks away, and she’s tired of playing second fiddle to her ex. She’s going to take back her crown as the queen of ice cream, even if it means getting close to Chase once again.

After all, all is fair in love and war, and you know what they say about keeping your enemies close…

Although maybe Chase is a little too close…

Review:

Raelynn loves her ice cream shop.  She had dreams and aspirations to really make it into something special.  That was until her ex-boyfriend stole her dreams and made them his own by setting up a rival ice cream shop right next door to her.  After two years, Raelynn still avoids Chase at all costs.  The time has finally come to obliterate her enemy…namely Chase.  What Raelynn really thinks he’s doing is something quite different to reality.  Can Raelynn move past her need for revenge and find her way back to happiness even if it is with the last person she ever wanted to see again?

I loved this book.  Raelynn and Chase are incredibly entertaining.  Their banter is hilarious and very relatable.  This is a very sweet and funny story. I loved the premise.  The rival ice cream shops run by ex lovers.  Raelynn is headstrong and opinionated, while Chase is stubborn and quite misguided at times.  Throughout the story you feel the emotions the characters feel for each other.  Emma Hart has quite the unique talent of writing strong characters, engaging stories and memorable dialogue that will have you laughing long after the book is finished.  If you are looking for your next rom-com love story, look no further.  You can’t go wrong by picking up this Emma Hart book.

Until one night after too many cocktails, we fall into bed together.

I’m flirting with my forever…she just doesn’t know it yet.

Review:

Cam in a moment of solidarity makes a stupid pact with his best friend, Jack.  Only with this pact he finally sees his other best friend for what she is, a beautiful woman that he can’t stop fantasizing about.  Natalie, realizes she wants to not be lonely anymore.  But, when Jack sets her up with one of his bartenders she can’t keep her eyes off of Cam.  As Cam and Natalie finally begin to realize they both want more than just friends there is that pact and their friendship on the line.  Can they take the jump or will they continue to watch the other from the sidelines?

This was a great sexy read.  The slow burn of Cam and Natalie’s love story really made it feel realistic and not just another story with steamy sex scenes.  I love a good friends to lovers story.  This felt so much more though.  Cam and Natalie felt like this had been building up to this moment for such a long time they just couldn’t see it.  Kendall Ryan does a phenomenal job in creating a story and characters that you truly enjoy and can’t put down until they finally get their happily ever after.  If you are looking for the next good romance you need to pick this one up.  You won’t regret it for a moment.

Review: Timid by Devney Perry

 

Willa Doon has always been shy. Her quiet demeanor was something she’s always embraced. That is, until Jackson Page moves to town. The one man she desperately wants to take notice struggles to remember her name.

Year after year, Willa stands by, watching as the bartender slash playboy drowns his demons in beer and sex. Then one night, he shows up at her door, suddenly aware that the girl he’s seen around Lark Cove is now a beautiful woman.

Except what he doesn’t remember is that this visit isn’t his first. They spent a night together once before. A night he’s forgotten, thanks to a bottle of tequila.

A night that crushed a timid girl’s heart, and set a broken man on the path to heal them both.

Review:

Willa Doon has swooned over Jackson Page from the moment she saw him 9 years ago.  She has never been bold and Jackson has always looked through her.  But, when one night changes everything Willa has so much hope.  Only to be dashed by Jackson the next day.  Jackson can’t believe he’s never truly noticed Willa until he saw Thea’s drawing of her.  He knows she has been haunting his dreams and he needs to know her.  What he doesn’t expect is that Willa has given up on him and wants nothing to do with him.  Jackson will have to work for her heart.  When he finally gets it will he break it because of fear or will he embrace what could be?

Oh my goodness!  This book was phenomenal.  I couldn’t put it down.  It will make you swoon and completely fall in love with Willa and Jackson’s love story.  It truly is an epic one.  Willa really comes into her own.  She is a very timid and shy character.  Though the depths that she has is shown when she finally fights for what she wants.  Jackson is no longer the playboy.  He is so much more.  These two are a love story that anyone would give to have.  It feels real and true.  With this also comes great side characters.  We get to have Hazel, Thea, Logan and Charlie back.  We also get to meet Willa’s parents who are definitely people anyone would want to have in their lives.  Devney Perry does it again.  She manages to leave you speechless with the power of the emotions she writes.  I can’t wait for the next book in this series.  Lark Cove has easily become one of my favorite contemporary romance series.  If you need to fall in love, pick up this series.  You will be swooning and begging for more.

Excerpt:

I scooched my chair in toward the table, trying to put a little more space between Jackson and me, but he wasn’t having it.

He put both hands on the back of my chair, then leaned in close. “Hi, Willa.”

“Uh . . . hi.” I shivered at the heat from his chest on my bare shoulders.

Why was he standing so close? My parents were right there. Our table was one of four tall, square ones in the center of the room and there was plenty of space between tables.

Plenty. P-L-E-N-T-Y.

But was Jackson using any of that plentiful space?

No sirree. He stayed pressed against the back of my chair, like there were only three inches of usable space behind him, not three feet.

My skin prickled he was so close. I tried to nudge my chair forward again but it barely moved. Sweat beaded on my temples and I pulled in a shaking breath.

Jackson’s woodsy, rich scent was everywhere. It overpowered the stale beer, pizza and peanuts, and I inhaled a deep breath, unable to resist.

Sexy Hot Forest. That’s what they’d call his cologne.

Review: Kiss the Girl by Tara Sivec

I am so happy to bring to you the final book in the Naughty Princess Club series.  Ariel’s story is everything we wanted it to be.  It is laugh out loud funny.  Incredibly witty dialogue and characters you will never forget will make this one book you won’t want to put down.  For my full review, keep reading after the book blurb.  I guarantee if you haven’t picked up this series yet, you will want to do that immediately.

38492048Book Blurb:

A struggling antiques collector finds herself falling in love with a millionaire playboy; but can she ever be a part of his world?

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.

While her friends have broken free of their insecurities, Ariel Waters is struggling to come out of her shell. Her ex-husband took away her voice and her self-confidence, and Ariel is drowning under a sea of debt to afford the alimony she has to pay him. She refuses to ever fall for a man’s charms again, and is determined to make her own way.

When her house and her beloved antiques are taken by the bank after too many missed payments, Ariel finds herself adrift until the infuriatingly charming Eric Sailor comes to her rescue. Although she can’t stand the millionaire playboy, Eric’s kindness and unconditional support reveal hidden depths and a love that Ariel never imagined she could find.

But there are outside influences who will stop at nothing to keep them apart; can Ariel and Eric weather the storm and find a way to be together?

Review:

Ariel’s life is crumbling down around her.  The one person there to help pick up the pieces is the most annoyingly handsome man she’s ever met.  Ariel doesn’t ever want to rely on a man again.  All Eric wants to do is help her get back on her feet and show her that all men aren’t like the one that destroyed her self confidence.  Ariel fights her feelings tooth and nail but those dimples and his hairless cat wears her down.  Will Ariel finally become the naughty princess that she’s always been or will her fear hold her down for good?

I LOVED THIS BOOK!  Ariel was always my favorite character in this series.  Her book did not disappoint.  Ariel and Eric are the perfect duo.  She is so rough around the edges and though you think at first Eric is just a shallow guy but he is so much more.  The banter between the two of them is priceless.  It is truly some of the best work by Tara Sivec.  She is the queen of laugh out loud dialogue that only a few people would actually say out loud.  Ariel reminds me of the characters in her Chocolate Lovers series.  She doesn’t hold anything back.  In the end, Ariel is so much more than just the bawdy, no-holds bar chick.  She has a heart…though if she were here she’d definitely stab me in the throat for saying that.  Overall, I will miss this series terribly.  I can’t wait to see what Tara Sivec comes up with next.
