Wild Boys After Dark: Logan (Wild Boys After Dark #1)

Wild Boys After Dark: Logan


I am a huge fan of Melissa Foster and I had read the second book in the series before I had read this one, but once again Melissa did not disappoint with a skillful writing and swoon worthy characters. I absolutely loved Logan's character because who does not love an alpha male whose only wish is to protect the woman he loves with his life. Stella's character was a bit weak and annoying at times because the back and forth with wanting to be with Logan just became irritating.  I really enjoyed the inclusion of the Bad and Wild boys in the series because it added to the family theme that helped make the book more emotional. Melissa's writing was once again flawless and I love her dual point of view writing style and the fact that she added an edge of danger to the book which made it more exciting. The chemistry between Stella and Logan was off the charts hot and was definitely well constructed and written. My only issue with the book was the ending as it felt rushed and incomplete because I dont think Stella would be rid of her fear and Kutcher unless he was dead. Overall this was a brilliant read by an extremely talented author and I definitely want to read the rest of the series.

Rating: 4/5

Coerced: Blackmailed by the Billionaire (Buchanan Romance #1)

Coerced: Blackmailed by the Billionaire



I am generally a fan of the Fifty Shades types of books, but this book was a huge disappointment as it was unable to hold my attention and lacked a story line. It was my first time reading a book by Alexx Andria and I did not enjoy the third person POV style of writing because it did not allow the reader to connect with the characters. I absolutely hated Sutton's character because he was not an alpha male or a gentlemen he was just a spoiled asshole who is used to getting whatever he wanted and I could not stand what a prick he was to Elizabeth especially when it came to cheating on her. Elizabeth's character was okay because she was able to stand up to Sutton sometimes, but she also did get annoying when she let him have his way after he cheated and then she was willing to forgive him because of an expensive holiday. The chemistry between them was good, but this booked seemed only about the sex and not about the story or characters because the reader barely got to know the characters background stories and the reasons behind their insecurities. I also felt that the book was rushed towards the end which was very irritating. Overall this was a disappointing read of one of my favorite genres and I definitely would not be reading the rest of the series.

Rating: 2/5


Plot

A Kiss For The Cameras (The Hollywood Showmance Chronicles #1)

A Kiss For The Cameras



This was a sweet contemporary romance which is is full of drama, emotion and fun. It was my first time reading a book by Olivia James and  I enjoyed her dual point of view writing style because it enabled the reader to understand both Nate and Paige. I liked Nate's character with his British accent and romantic side,but he got a little annoying when he decided he knew what was best for Paige and when his self esteem was getting in the way of his relationship. Paige's character was my favorite because she was strong, intelligent and independent and she never tolerated anyone's bullshit and always called Nate out on his bad behavior. The chemistry between Nate and Page was good, but there was definitely room for improvement. The secondary characters of both Nate and Paige's friend was well written and conceived and definitely set a good platform for a wonderful series. Overall this was a wonderful and light romance which will definitely leave you with warm feelings and I cannot wait to read Max and Carrie's story.

Rating: 3.5/5


Plot

Nate Mason is a sexy and charming Hollywood heartthrob, who is always in the eye of the paparazzi with the image of not being one to settle down with one woman.

Claiming Her Seal (Assignment: Caribbean Nights #1)

Claiming Her Seal


This is the first installment in the Caribbean Night series as well as the first book that have read by Kat Cantrell. I am generally a huge fan of books based on Navy Seals because I love their alpha male and protective behaviour, but this book kind of disappointed me because I did not fall in love with Dex's character. I found that Dex was always so wrapped in his insecurities and he was always craving for someone to give his problems and feeling attention, which really was annoying at times especially when he painted himself as the devil. Emma's character was strong and independent and I enjoyed her standing up to Dex as well as to her fears, but she also became irritating with the back and forth with Dex because she was unable to make up her mind. The chemistry between Dex and Emma was good, but did not leave you wanting more. For a first time reader of Kat Cantrell, I found her dual point of view style of writing enjoyable, however the book did have a very slow and dragging feel to it. Overall this was an okay read which held nothing special or captivating, therefore making this book a time pass read.

Rating: 3/5


Plot

Magic Kiss (Hope Falls #11)

Magic Kiss



This is the second book I read by Melanie Shawn in the Hope Falls series and I really enjoyed this sweet romance which leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzy on the inside. I loved Logan's character because of his alpha male qualities and the way he respected his friendship and tried to look after his friends family, however I would have liked to see more of Logan's PTSD and how he dealt with it.  Emma's character was sweet and innocent and I loved how she was an example of an everyday woman with normal problems. I really enjoyed the fact that Emma was a writer and I loved the scenes where she is writing her book because I manged to get engrossed her novel's characters and I wish that Melanie would bring that series to life. The dual point of view writing style was good, but I did feel that there was not enough drama in the book so for me it began to drag towards the end. The chemistry between Logan and Emma was hot and definitely help pull the reader into the story. I did not like the fact that Drew was acting to mature for his age especially when it came to women and his parents love life. Over all this was a great small town romance which highlights a second chance at love.

Rating: 3.5/5


Plot

Logan Dorsey left his job at the military and as an undercover cop when he lost his best friend. He cannot seem to get rid of his nightmares and the only person who can help him is untouchable.

Wednesday

Wednesday


I am generally a fan of dark romances, but this book completely disappointed me because it lacked a story and character depth. This was my first time reading a book by Kendall Ryan and she did not manage to leave a good impression because even though I liked the dual point of view narration the story felt like it was just an after thought and was not written for the sake of it. I completely hated the way Shaw treated Chloe because she was his best friend and he was treating her like some cheap prostitute who he could not care less about. Chloe was also such a push over because she let Shaw treat her like dirt and just accepted it for the sake of sex and love. The sex scenes were good but definitely lacked emotions. e never really got to know the characters properly and it seemed like Kendall Ryan wrote the book in the middle of her sleep. The book definitely felt incomplete because it was over before you even really tried to get into this poorly written story. A definite waste of my reading time and I dont think I will be reading any more of Kendall Ryan books.

Rating: 1.5/5


Plot

Shaw and Chloe have been best friends since they were children, but when Shaw's wife dies he is filled with heartache and regrets so every Wednesday he goes to Chloe for sex. Chloe has always been in love with Shaw and even though she desires him she wishes things were different and that he had more to offer her than sex.

As time goes on Chloe is unsure if she can carry on just sleeping with Shaw because she has given him her heart and soul. Expressing her feelings may drive him away, but it si a risk she is willing to take.

Vegas Love (Love Series #1)

Vegas Love



This was my first time reading a book by Jillian Dodd and I was drawn right in with her brilliant writing and funny moments. The writing style was great and I loved the dual point of view style and her likable characters. Cash is definitely a candidate for book boyfriend because he was sweet and romantic, but at the same time possessed some of the alpha male qualities that I loved. Ashlyn was innocent and nave to the point where it got annoying and I did not like the fact that she resorted to getting high when at work especially when she has been a victim of drug abuse. The chemistry between Cash and Ashlyn was hot, but I did feel that the insta love was a bit far fetched. The booked kept me intrigued for the first half and I loved the humor that came along with the characters, but I did wish there was a bit more drama as the book began to drag towards the end. Overall this is a great book which will definitely leave a smile on your face and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series with Cash's brothers.

Rating: 4/5


Plot


Ashlyn Roberts is a famous Hollywood star who has just had the worst week in her life because her ex boyfriend released a sex tape of her and her current boyfriend just broke up with her at her best friends wedding.
