Resisting the Boss (Mid-Life Love #1)

Resisting the Boss


This was my first time reading a book by Whitney G and I absolutely loved the story and her great writing style. I don't generally read books about older people with children, but I did enjoy this mid life love book. Jonathon character has the alpha male characteristics that I love, but sometimes I felt that he was steam rolling Claire into doing things she did not want as well as that he was a billionaire who did not seem to care about his business or money as he was just making changes and spending money for the woman he was sleeping with. I also felt that he did not care about his sister or his family once Claire came into the picture which I found annoying .I felt that Jonathon did not fight for Claire and demand that she stay when it counted the most and that he was always asking more of Claire than he was ready to give.   Claire's character was of a lady who is having a mid life crisis, but for someone who was meant to be mature it was irritating she gave into Jonathon's demands and she kept on playing games with Jonathon due to her insecurities. The chemistry between Claire and Jonathon was mind blowing and it was what kept me hooked on the book. Overall it was a good book and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Rating: 3.5/5

Hot Stuff (Hot Zone #1)

Hot Stuff


I am a huge fan of Carly Phillips books and when I choose to read a book of hers I know I am in for a brilliant story, however I felt this book a bit disappointing as it did not have the usual charm of her books. Brandon's character was selfless and always wanting to help those in need even if it meant opening up on his weaknesses, but I missed the alpha male type behavior that are synonymous with Carly Phillips books. Annabelle's character was one with fears and insecurity of losing her family, but I enjoyed how she tries to always keep her family together. I loved the inclusion of Uncle Yank and Lola's story as it helped bring a humorous dimension to the book. The chemistry between Brandon and Annabelle was good, but not as scorching hot as I am used to in a Carly Phillips book. Carly's writing style was good, but I did not enjoy the dual point of view as it kept on switching between characters in the middle of a chapter. Overall this was a good book, but not up to the brilliant standards of Carly Phillips.

Rating: 3/5


Plot

Annabelle Jordon, along with her two sisters, were orphaned when they were little which lead to them having to go and live with their sports lawyer uncle. Now all grown up, the girls have become publicists in their uncles firm, The Hot Zone.

Hidden Hollywood (Happy Endings Book Club #1)

Hidden Hollywood



This is the first book in the Happy Endings Book Club series and can be read as a stand alone novel. This was my first time reading a book by Kylie Gilmore and I enjoyed her writing style and story, but her character could have used a bot more depth. Claire, I felt was very self centered and even when trying to be a normal person was very concerned about her glamour image and what people will recognize her and I hated the fact that she lived in fear of the press and let them dictate her life. Jake was the typical billionaire character who is tired of money grabbing ladies, but  when he is trying to play a normal person he fully enjoyed the simplicity.  I feel that we did not get to see enough of the characters relationship with each another especially with how Jake manged to deal with Claire's stardom. The chemistry between Claire and Jake was good, but their relationship felt more physical than emotional. The secondary characters of Josh and Hailey was well written and I enjoyed watching their love hate relationship. Overall this was an okay book, that had much more potential.

Rating: 3/5


Plot

Claire Jordan is a famous actress, who is currently in the process of making her favorite book into a movie, through which she forms a bond with the author and the Happy Endings book club. One drunken night at the book club, Claire expresses her wish to date a regular guy which results in the book club setting her up with bartender Josh Campbell.

Chance for Love (The Watson Brothers #1)

Chance for Love


This is the first book in the Watson Brothers series as well as the first book that I have read by Ann B Harrison. The book was set in the magical town of Marietta which I always love reading about as it now feels so familiar due to the many books that I have read that was based in the area. For me personally, the idea of a mail order bride who instantly fell in love with her husband was a bit far fetched an unrealistic. I liked Callie's character because she was strong and independent and was straight forward, however I disliked how she instantly fell into bed with Chance as well as forgot about her sisters towards the end of the book. Chance's character was okay, but I felt that we did not get to know him well enough to form a solid opinion of him. The chemistry between Callie and Chance was good, but again it was not realistic especially for someone suffering with an injury. The secondary characters were well written and spiked my interest in the next few books in the series. Overall this was a far fetched story set in the magical town of Marietta, however I am interested to read the next book in the series.

Rating: 3/5


Plot

Callie is an Australian girl whose parents have just died leaving her with a large amount of debt as well as her sisters responsibility, so when she sees an advert for a ranch manger in Colorado she cant resist, however the contract stipulates marriage.

Chance is a famous bull rider who is unhappy with the life filled with glitz and glamour, so when an accident leaves him unable to return to riding he decides to fulfill his dream of marrying a down to earth girl who will raise bulls with him on his ranch.

Unconditional (Beachwood Bay #3)

Unconditional



This is another brilliant installment of what is turning out to be a magnificent series by Melody Grace. Melody has managed to keep me attached to the magical town of Beachwood Bay through her wonderful characters and outstanding writing. Garret and Carina's story is one of two damaged souls who are trying to move forward even though their past insecurities keep on trying to pull them back. Carina's character is a one of a strong women who was able to break free of an abusive  and fickle relationship and who has realized her past mistakes and is trying to correct them. Garret is tormented by his past and has been coping through his pain the only way he knew how. I enjoyed Garret's character because he was always willing to see the best in Carina and was always trying to protect her, but he was annoying and cowardly when he was running away from his feelings to avoid the pain. The chemistry between Carina and Garret was explosive and well conceived. I loved watching the characters from the first two books in the series being included in this book because it made the town and story even more familiar and enticing. Overall this is great series and I can't wait to read the final installment.

Rating: 4/5


Plot

Carina Mckenzie is running away from an abusive fiance and an awful past which leads her to the one place she felt happiness and comfort - Beachwood Bay. Garret Sawyer is not looking to fall in love again after how he has been hurt in the past especially not with an ice queen like Carina.

Going Down Easy (Billionaire Bad Boys #1)

Going Down Easy


Carly Phillips is one of my all time favorite authors and she once again proved she is one of the best writers in the contemporary romance genre as she has given another magnificent book. I absolutely loved her dual point writing style and realistic characters because they brought the story to life and made it enjoyable. Kade's character was not your typical billionaire, he had real illnesses which affected his daily life and he had a family back story that was believable. Lexi's character was one of of a selfless lady who was always willing to sacrifice her life and desires to look after her family and she was so understanding towards Kade and his problems which made her even better. The chemistry between Kade and Lexie was off the charts scorching hot, which is always expected when you pick up a Carly Phillips novel. However, I would have liked the story to be a bit longer and for us to learn more in depth about Kade and Lexie's characters. Overall this was a brilliant read from an exceptionally talented author and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series.

Rating: 4/5


Plot

Kaden Barnes is an intelligent and sexy tech billionaire who cannot seem to keep an assistant for a long time. Then Lexie Parker arrives, and she is all business and highly efficient and organised, but the problem is that she is extremely sexy and Kaden is attracted to her instantly.

When they are unable to deny their attraction to each other any longer, Kaden thinks he is calling the shots but going down easy has never felt so good.

Deliver Me (Holmes Brothers #1)

Deliver Me



Deliver Me is the first book in the Holmes Brothers series as well as the first book that have read by Farrah Rochon. This book like any other had both its positives and negatives, but I personally felt that the story did not have any wow points which made it stand out or remember-able.  Eli's character was of a flirt doctor who considered himself to be super doc, but in order to try and save the parenting center that he put so much effort into he had to strike a deal with the beautiful doctor. Monica was on overachieving doctor who was running away from her failures and is always out to impress everybody, I did not like the fact that at the first sign of trouble she ran away and hid behind her insecurities. The chemistry between Eli and Monica was good, but I did not like the fact that Monica got addicted to Eli so quickly. Farrah's characters and writing style was okay, but I did not enjoy that there were two stories running in conjunction with each another, because it mad e it confusing at times. Overall an okay book, with nothing unique to make it memorable.

Rating:2.5/5


Plot

Monica Gardner leaves her home in St Louis and moves to New Orleans to work as an ER doctor. Her first day starts out rocky when she keeps on running into super doc Elijah Holmes who maybe the man to changer her mind about falling in love again.

Worth the Scandal (Worth It #1)

Worth the Scandal



I am a fan of Karen Erickson and I found this book to be a little disappointing as it did not have the usual charm that is present in her book and characters. Lets start of with Alex, I enjoyed the whole alpha male aspect of his character, but I hated it when he was behaving like a jerk towards Tessa. Then there was Tessa who behaved like a spineless doormat who just agreed with everything Alex did because she loved him. The chemistry between Alex and Tessa was good, but nothing out of this world. I enjoyed Karen's dual point of writing style, however I did feel like the book was too short and missing many elements. In the beginning they speak about Alex being betrayed, but no information was given on that, then at the end they did not show us Tessa's reaction to falling pregnant as well as all the turmoil she went through with becoming a single parent and I felt that this lead to a lack of depth in the characters and the story. Overall it is an okay read, but it was not up to the standards of Karen's other books.

Rating: 3/5


Plot

Alexander Worth, is the CEO of Worth Luxury Goods, he is completely loyal to his business and family and he is always in control until it comes to his assistant Tessa Crawford. Because Tessa works for him she is the one woman he needs to stay away from.

A Little Harmless Sex (Harmless #1)

A Little Harmless Sex




I found this book to be average as there was nothing special or attention catching in the story-line or the characters. It was my first time reading a book by Melissa Schroeder and her writing style was okay, but her use of vocabulary was very poor.  Anna's character was very annoying at times especially when she was making assumptions in her head about her relationship with Max and I hated that she did not know Max well enough even though they claimed to best friends for years. I enjoyed Max's alpha male and possessive behavior, but I disliked that he rather make plans and play games instead of communicating clearly with Anna. The chemistry between Max and Anna was explosive and was one of the best things about the book. The first half of the book was at  a good pace, but it started to go downhill in the second half with all the confusion and uncertainty. Overall this was an okay read to pass your time.

Rating: 2.5/5 


Plot

Max and Anna have been best friends for many years, but when Max's fiance dumps him and Anna breaks up with her latest fling, they both decide to have a tequila party which leads to them having mind blowing sex.

After one night together Max has realized that he wants Anna in his bed and life for forever, but Anna is a known commitment phobe and it is Max's job to convince her otherwise. Anna cannot believe she slept with the man who has starred in fantasies for may years, but the problem now is that Max is pushing for more than just a little harmless sex.

Love So Hot (The Lawson Brothers #1)

Love so Hot




This book had me addicted from the start, I was unable to put it down because I loved that it had best friends turning to lovers as well as all the feelings that came with it. It was my first time reading a book by Marquita Valentine and I really enjoyed her dual point of view style of writing. Brody was the perfect man, he was sexy, caring and possessive and I loved the parts when he began to get jealous and territorial over Sydney. I felt Sydney's character was kind of weak because she depended o her friends to push her towards the man she loves and it seemed like she was a pushover who was not willing to fight for the man she loves instead she just blindly listened to her friends. The chemistry between Brody and Sydney  was off the charts and it mad up for the flaws in Sydney's character.  I personally did not find Cherry's character believable because no girl gives up the man she is dating so he can realize that he is in love with his best friend as well as no girl will help her  another girl to seduce her ex boyfriend. I would have also liked the book to be longer so we could have seen a better development through Brody and Sydney's relationship. Overall this was a great quick read which is filled with steaming hot chemistry and a dose of healthy jealousy.

Rating: 3.5/5


Plot

Sydney Mcknight is the nice girl who every guy wants to be friends with, but no one wants to date her. Sydney decides to bet on her best friend and secret crush Brody Lawson in the fireman's auction so that he can teach her how to seduce a man.

Every Little Kiss (Kissed by the Bay #1)

Every Little Kiss



This is a short and sweet romantic novel based in the magical town of Blue Moon Bay.  I am fan of Susan Hatler and I enjoy her simple novels which embraces the true nature of romance as she manages to make you fall in love with her characters. Wendy's character is strong and independent, but at the same time she is emotional and I really enjoyed seeing both sides of her. Max is everyone's dream man he is gorgeous, caring and a good listener. The chemistry between Max and Wendy was sweet and romantic and it did not feel rushed or superficial. I really enjoyed the magical legend of Blue Moon Bay that brought them together as well as the part fate had to play in bringing Wendy and Max together. The secondary characters of Brian, Olivia and Megan were well conceived and brought an emotional depth to the book that was much needed. I liked Susan's style of writing, however I did wish that this book was written in a dual point of view style as I would have loved to see Max's thoughts throughout the book. Overall this was a short romantic read which leaves you filled with warmth and happiness.

Rating: 4/5


Plot

Wendy Watts is returning to Blue Moon Bay nine years after she vowed never to come back because the town holds the painful memories of her parents abandoning her and her brother Brian. She is now a successful realtor who is forced to return after her grandmother passes away, so that she can sell their family inn in person.

The Kingmaker (Powerplay #2)

The Kingmaker



The Kingmaker is the second book in the Powerplay series and it reminds me of one of my favorite programmes Scandal. I really enjoyed this book because it is a great mix of both politics and romance and I enjoy watching powerful men fall in love. Dereks's character was a powerful alpha male who sticks to his beliefs and is a true born leader and I loved that he could be ruthless in power games, but he was equally sweet and romantic with the woman he loved. London's character was strong and independent and I loved the fact that she never felt sorry for herself or let anyone pity her, she made her decisions and took the responsibility for them. This was my first time reading a book by Selena Laurence and I really enjoyed her style of writing and the way she makes her characters come to life. The chemistry between Derek and London was scorching hot and I enjoyed that their relationship was based around more than just their physical relationship. I really did enjoy this book, but I felt that something was missing and I do not exactly know what it is. Overall this was a brilliant read and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Rating: 4/5


Plot

Derek Ambrose is a political genius who is currently serving as a consultant to a presidential candidate.  On the night that his candidate is about to announce his candidacy for president, Derek finds him in a compromising position with a high class prostitute.

Accidental Seal (Seal Brotherhood #1)

Accidental Seal



I am generally person who love books based on Seals as I love the alpha male hero as much as the next girl, but this book was beyond disappointing and boring and it took me so long to complete which made me begin to dislike the book even more. Let's begin with Kyle who is on a mission to save his best friend from danger and keeps getting distracted due to his raging hormones, that is definitely not a characteristic of a Navy Seal. He is also continuously an ass to Christy  and keeps on putting her life in danger especially when he knows he has bad guys after him. Then there is Christy, I think she is the worst female led character I have ever read, she goes and falls in love with a man ,who attacks her in the first meeting, after sleeping with him a couple of times. She also continues to run after Kyle even when he is treating her poorly which ends up making her a clingy and weak character who has no backbone at all. The writing in this book was horrible, it was just so boring and unable to captivate the readers attention with the bad use of similes to describe irrelevant situations. The chemistry between Kyle and Christy was weak and it flt to constructed and manual and I hated the fact that there was no substance in their relationship or love because it only seemed to be about the physical relationship. Overall this was  a long waste of my time read and I definitely would not recommend it to anyone.

Rating: 1.5/5


Plot

Christy Nelson has just begun her career as a real estate agent and when attempting to host a first open house, she enters the wrong house and finds a sleeping naked man.

Hotel Hookup: Chicago ( Hotel Hookup #3)

Hotel Hookup: Chicago



Firstly, I personally thought that this  book was a complete waste of my time and effort and I regret that I even reading it. It was my first time reading a book by Annabelle Snow and I completely disliked her writing style, I felt that she described everything in the book in extreme details and that ended up becoming very annoying and boring when you have to read about every little thing in the setting. This book lacked a story as well as depth in characters and the single point of view style of writing made it even more one dimensional. I personally did not see the point of this book because even the ending felt incomplete to me. The one thing I did enjoy in the book was the chemistry between Clark and Hannah, but that was about it. I would not recommend this book if you looking for something substantial to read.

Rating: 1.5/5


Plot

Hannah Truitt plans a relaxing weekend away with her sisters every year without fail and this year after a bad break up she needs the vacation even more. The Drake Hotel situated in Chicago is the perfect escape for Hannah and her sisters.

Easy Love (Boudreaux #1)

Easy Love


This is the first book in the Boudreaux family series which is based in the charming town of New Orleans. Easy Love is light, funny and easy read which will leave the reader feeling warm and in love at the end.  I am huge fan of Kristen Proby ever since I read the With Me In Seattle series and she did not disappoint with this brilliant read which makes you fall in love with her characters. I absolutely loved Eli's character because he was an alpha male, but at the same time he was also a gentleman who had great manners and etiquette. Kate's character was good because she is a strong women who overcame her horrible past and moved on in life, I especially loved her when she got drunk because she was hilarious. The chemistry between both Eli and Kate was off the charts and it is rare to find such mind blowing chemistry which has both intensity and sweetness.  The secondary characters in the book was well written especially all of Eli's brothers and sisters because this gave me a good idea of what is left to come. This was a great book, however I would have liked to see a little more drama as well as more into Kate's undercover mission. Overall this was a easy but brilliant read and I cant wait to read the rest of the series.

Rating: 4/5


Plot

The Legend (Sons of Texas #3)

The Legend




                        (This review is based on the ARC provided by the publisher via Net Galley)

This is the third book in the Sons of Texas series and it mainly follows the story of Wyatt and Callie and I highly recommend that the series is read in order otherwise it does not make much sense. I am a huge fan of the series and have been following it from the first book and I absolutely love the way the book keeps you at the edge of your seat with all the action and suspense occurring, but at the same time it gives you all  the thing that I love in a romance novel. Wyatt's character was this strong alpha male who protects those he loves even if it might put his life at risk and I loved that he also had a softer side for Callie ( even though we rarely got to see it ). I really enjoyed Callie's character because she was strong and independent and she stood her ground and fought when she was in danger, she did not just let Wyatt protect her like a damsel in distress. The chemistry between Wyatt and Callie was great and it was good to get their background story on their relationship in this book. Donna once again managed to keep the reader intrigued throughout the  entire book through her flawless writing and brilliant characters.  This by far one of the best series that I have read in a very long time and I loved seeing all the characters woven into all three books, however I would like to see another book in this series as I felt that this book was ended abruptly. A great read that has definitely made be a fan of Donna Grant.

Rating: 4/5


Plot

Callie Reed is and expert sharpshooter and hacker who does not need a man to protect herself, but when danger comes lurking in the form of a deadly group called The Saints, she is forced to join hands with the man who broke her heart many years ago.

Moonstone Beach (Main Street Merchants #1)

Moonstone Beach




Moonstone Beach is the first book in the Main Street Merchants series as well as the debut novel for author Linda Seed. This was well constructed book and really shows the vast potential that Linda has to offer. The dual point of view type of writing was a good choice as it let you get into the mind of both the main characters. I personally found Kate's character annoying because she was able to only stand up to Jackson and no one else, she always let her father walk all over her which had me screaming at her many times. Jackson's character was very plain, other than the fact that he was a chef there was nothing different about him which made him in turn very boring. The chemistry between Kate and Jackson was simple most of the time and there were not much explosive or wow moments. I also felt that the book ended very weirdly because after the last chapter it just felt incomplete. This is an average book from an author who has tremendous potential and I hope the series becomes more interesting as it proceeds.

Rating: 2.5/5


Plot

Kate Bennet is a book store owner in the small tourist town of Cambria and two years after her divorce she finally thinks she is ready to get back into the dating pool again. Jackson Graham is a hot chef with a fiery temper, who loves to control everything when it comes to food, but it careless when it comes to women.

The only problem is that nor Kate or Jackson knows if Jackson can change his self defeating habits which usually send women running out the door.

Betting On You (Always A Bridesmaid #1)

Betting On You


Betting on You is a light an easy read based on second chance romance. This is not much to say about this book because i is the same old story of two lovers breaking up when they were younger only to realize later on life that their perfect life partner is the one whose heart they broke many years ago. There is nothing special or unique about this story or the characters which resulted  in the reader not being able to connect with the characters. Lark was not strong enough to stand her ground because she forgave Mason way to easily.  Mason was the typical man who believed that even after breaking someones heart that he could return and say sorry and everything will then go back to the way it was in the past. The chemistry between Lark and Mason was okay, but nothing spectacular. Overall this was an average book that can be read to pass time, but I would like to read the next book as I am looking forward to discovering what is the story with Aria and Nash.

Rating: 2.5/5


Plot

Lark March believes she has gotten over Mason Stewart and the horrible thing he did to break her heart four years ago, that is until she sees him at her best friends wedding. Mason looks even better and talks even sweeter than before, and Lark realizes that he still affects her badly.

Unafraid (Beachwood Bay #2)

Unafraid



This is the second book in the Beachwood Bay romantic series and it can be read as a stand alone. I actually remember reading Unbroken a long time ago and I had enjoyed Emerson's and Juliet's story, therefore I took a chance and read this book and I must say that Melody did not disappoint. She managed to keep the charm of the summer town Beachwood Bay alive in this book and I loved the journey of the characters and their growth throughout the book. Hunter was the rich golden boy who had anything one could want in life, but it is true when they say you never know what demons a person in fighting in their everyday life. Hunter's life had seemed perfect from the outside, but he was battling with the pressure from his parents as well as the guilt from a dark secret which has been eating him alive. Brit was a strong character, and I loved that she did not care what people thought about her and she lived her life the way she wanted. I really enjoyed watching Brit grow as a character especially her being able to fight her insecurities  in order to be with the man she has always loved. The chemistry between Hunter and Brit was off the charts, but at the same time I loved how Hunter took the time to gain Brit's trust by showing her what real romance is. This was a great series and I am really becoming a fan of Melody Grace's work.

Rating: 3.5/5

Cruel and Beautiful

Cruel and Beautiful



I cannot begin to even describe this book it was that magnificent and unique, I actually finished reading this masterpiece yesterday and I have not been able to stop thinking about this book and it's characters. This book is a tear jerker  filed with every emotion you can think off from love to pain to humor and even jealousy . I am generally someone who does not enjoy sad books, but this book was so addicting that I could not put it down and was even reading at work. I am generally someone who does not like a past and present style of writing, but the authors used the style so well that you could not stop reading because you wanted the answers to all your questions. I loved the chemistry between Drew and Cate because their romantic scenes made you all dreamy, but at the same time their intimate scenes made you all hot and bothered.  This book was unlike any other book I have read, it was so emotionally charged that you went through a roller coaster with the characters, you actually felt every emotion that they did and I think that is what made it such a brilliant book.  I do not want to give anything away especially with the big twist at the end, but I can say this a must read book that is not for the faint hearted.

Rating: 5/5

Unspoken (Woodlands #2)

Unspoken



Unspoken is the second book in the Woodlands series, but can be read as a standalone just like I did. This was my first time reading a book by Jen Frederick and I enjoyed the characters and their development throughout the book as well as I loved that she chose to base her book on the relevant topic of bullying and its consequences. AnneMarie character was a great example of how bullying can affect a person's life and I liked the fact that she did not leave campus due to it, but I did find that she was weak at some points when she refused to carry on living her college life as normal. Bo was a strong character with some crazy daddy issues which resulted in him not believing in himself or his ability to get over his past. I loved the alpha male side of Bo, but I did not enjoy the fighting as a release of anger. The chemistry between Bo and AM was scorching hot and the intimate scenes were well written.  The beginning of the book was excellent and the story of two people trying to overcome their past really drew me in, but towards the end of the book it began ti drag and I felt the book getting boring and it became difficult for me to complete, however I did like the addition of the 10 and 18 years later chapters. I enjoyed the dual point of view style of writing, but I did find many typos in the beginning of the book which really annoyed me. Overall this was a good book with a captivating story and I would definitely want to read the rest of the series.

Rating: 3.5/5


Plot

Barefoot with a Bodyguard (Barefoot Bay Undercover #1)

Barefoot with a Bodyguard



Barefoot with a Bodyguard is a romantic story filled with suspense and set on the magical beaches of Barefoot Bay.  This was my second time reading a book by Roxanne St. Claire and I really enjoy her addition of mystery and danger into the books, however I did not enjoy that the story was written with more than two point of views as it sometimes made it very confusing and difficult to read. I enjoyed Alec's character because he did not just give into his dark past, he actually fought to become a better person. Kate's character was kind of annoying especially her whole whining about not wanting be controlled by a man and at the first chance she got she went back into her old patterns. The chemistry between Kate and Alec was steaming hot and I enjoyed watching Alec trying to fight his attraction towards Kate. I loved all the drama going on in the book especially towards the end as it made the book more interesting because towards the middle it had gotten slow and boring which resulted in me taking longer to finish the book. Overall this is a good book and I would definitely be interested in reading the rest of the book.

Rating: 3.5/5

Destined for Love (The Bradens at Weston, CO #2)

Destined for Love



I am a huge fan of Melissa Foster and I always love her books and her characters and I am glad that this book did not disappoint. This is the second book in the series and is based around forbidden love and family loyalty. I loved Rex's character because of his alpha male behavior as well as his loyalty towards his family. Jade's character was well written and I enjoyed her independence and willingness to make it on her own. It was great seeing Treat and Max from the first book and seeing how their love story progress. The chemistry between Jade and Rex was scorching hot and it added a great element to the book. I also enjoyed the mystical story of the two dancers and Rex's mother having a hand into getting Rex and Jade together. I did feel at times that the book was going to slow at times and it did take me time to finish the book. Overall it was a great read and I am loving the series.

Rating: 3.5/5

You Don't Know Me

You Don't Know Me



This is a family story based on two famous brothers who find out after their fathers death that they have a half sister who has inherited millions of dollars from their father. I really think hat this book had a lot of potential in terms of plot line, but due to poor execution it had failed to hit the mark. This was my first time reading a book by Faleena Hopkins and personally I did nit enjoy her writing because firstly I spotted spelling errors which is a big no no in my book and secondly I disliked that there were so many different point of view in the book because at times it made it confusing and difficult to read.  I had initially liked Rue's character because she had a strong back bone and was living as an independent girl supporting herself, but as as the book went on I found myself  beginning to hate her because she became immature especially when she was throwing tantrums and she let the fact that she is now rich change her personality.  Jack's character was also very immature because he was willing to go to any extent to try and hurt his innocent half sister. I enjoyed Sean's character because he was sweet and caring as well as the protective brother who did not like to flaunt his wealth or waste money. Alec's character to me seemed very confused half the time because he was always trying to fight his attraction to Rue and I hated that he did not stand up for her against Jack. I would have like to see more substance in Alec's character because I felt like we hardly knew him. The chemistry between Alec and Rue was poor because their relationship was not given as much importance in the book as it should have. The book was more about the brothers which I felt could have been made into a series where each of the brothers got their own book with their own stories.

Rating: 2.5/5


Plot

Rue Calliwell, is an orphan and an aspiring dancer, who inherits $50 million dollars from her father she never knew existed. With the money comes two half brothers that she never knew she had, one of which hates her and the other who wants to protect her.

Almost a Bride (Wyoming Wildflowers #1)

Almost a Bride


A sweet marriage of convenience romance based in the town of Wyoming. I really enjoyed this book because a fan of books based on marriages of convenience and I really liked that these characters had a history together. This was my first time reading a book by Patricia McLinn and I enjoyed her writing style because she put a lot of focus on her characters and their growth as people as well as the dual point of view allowed us to understand both the characters better. I loved Daves's character and his possessive alpha male ways especially the fact that he was sweet and willing to do anything to protect Matty from trouble. Matty's character was sometimes annoying because she was too impulsive and never considered anyone's feelings when she wanted to get to her goal. She was always picking on Dave for always knowing what his dreams and ambitions were which I felt was totally wrong, but I did like that she was strong and independent and able to stand up for herself when she was unhappy. The chemistry between Dave and Matty was hot and I especially liked the scenes where they would get caught. Overall this was a short, sweet and light read and I would definitely want to read the rest of the series.

Rating: 3.5/5


Plot

Matty Brennan always loved Dave Currick and always pictured marrying him, until he had broken her heart six years ago. Now after so many years Matty has returned to Wyoming and in order to save her families ranch she has to ask Dave to marry her.

Texas Secrets (The Gallaghers of Morning Star #1)

Texas Secrets



This was my first time reading a book by Jean Brashear and I absolutely enjoyed this book especially after the last few awful books I read. This is a Texan novel based in the small town of Morning Star, where life is slow paced and about ranches and family life. I really enjoyed Jeans style of writing especially the fact that she enabled the reader to emotionally connect with the characters through the dual point of view narrative style. Boone's character was the typical Texas cowboy who loves his ranch and his town, but there was also a selfless lover in him which I really enjoyed because he was willing to give up his happiness for the one he loves. Maddie's character was sweet and tender,but at the same time I love that she stood up for herself and never let Boone walk all over her. The chemistry between Boone and Maddie was good and I enjoyed watching them fight their attraction. I would have personally liked the book to be a bit longer and would have enjoyed more depth in the characters as well as a little drama,, but overall this was a great book and I will be looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Rating: 4/5


Plot

Maddie Collins is an up and coming chef she inherits a house from the husband of the only woman her father loved. She then leaves New York and goes to Texas after her business and life partner cheats on her and buys her out of her restaurant, she wants to use this down time to figure out what to do with her life as she has many job offers in New York.

Billionaire Impossible: An Alpha Billionaire Romance Series (Book 1)

Billionaire Impossible


Let me start with saying this is by far the worst book I have ever read, it is not even worth trying to read. I absolutely hated the writing style of this book it felt like the narrative was always in third person and this hindered my ability to connect with the characters or the story.  I completely did not understand the plot line or the fact that the authors jumps between so many characters points of view that it makes it so confusing that you begin to lose interest in the book. The characters lacked depth had were not well written at all, lets start with Julia who was a spineless cheater who could not get out of a toxic relationship in which she was getting raped almost everyday.  Darius who is supposed to be an alpha billionaire never seemed to care about what was going around him or even what was happening in his business, he was always saying he is the boss and can do whatever he feels like. The characters of Bob and Anderson were just creepy and they seemed to get away with all the stalking they were doing. Thomas, I felt was a rapist because he always forced himself on Julia even when she said no and even he ended up getting away with that kind of despicable behavior.  There was no chemistry between any of the characters, it felt like the author did not pay much attention when writing the book and even though this book ended on a cliffhanger I am not even mildly tempted to read the rest of the series.

Rating: 1/5


Plot

Darius White, a seclusive 25 year old billionaire, is driven to success after his parents untimely death. He now successfully runs his fathers real estate business and has opened up his own publishing house called Darius Publishing. Darius has no interest in connecting with anyone, until he meets Julia.

Find Her Keep Her: A Martha's Vineyard Love Story (Love in the USA #1)

Find Her Keep Her: A Martha's Vineyard Love Story


This was one of the most crazy and ridiculous story I have ever read because of the awful characters and lack of chemistry. It is my second time reading a book by Z.L Arkadie and I had had high expectations because I enjoyed other books of hers, but this book ended up disappointing me because of the poor choice of words used during the intimate scenes. The book felt very rushed at many times and this did not allow for well written character development and plot line. I generally love a possessive alpha male, but in this book Jack's behavior just annoyed me because he seemed so pushy especially for meeting someone for the first time and he often did not give Daisy a chance to think things through he would just try to rail road her with sex. Jack's character felt very immature especially with his constant wanting to have sex, he was never able to form the emotional connection with Daisy which I felt was really needed in this book. Daisy's character I felt was weak and did not have a back bone because she was unable to get out of a relationship she was not happy in and she seemed to just fall into bed with someone she just met without even thinking much about it, but I did enjoy her back story and when the explained the reason for insecurities. The intimate scenes between Jack and Daisy were short and Jack never could control himself which did not make for a good read especially with the poor choice of words used. I felt the chemistry and emotions between Jack and Daisy was non existent and I think this was partially because we only got see Jack's point of view towards the end of the book. I did love the magical location of Martha's Vineyard because it made you want to go on vacation in this wonderful town. Overall this was a story which had potential, but due to poor execution ended up disappointing the reader.

Rating: 2.5/5


Plot

Daisy Blanchard, who is a travel writer, discovers over a Facebook post that her best friend and boyfriend have gotten engaged. Being completely heart broken, Daisy decides to take a work assignment to Martha's Vineyard where she meets sexy billionaire Belmont Jaxson Lord. Belmont a.k.a.

Arm Candy (Hot City Nights #3)

Arm Candy



This was a sizzling standalone romance from the Hot City Nights series by Patricia Ryan. It was my first time reading a novel by Patricia and I found that I enjoyed this page turner at times because of her dual point of view writing style and all the drama and emotion included in the book. I did not get Nora's character at times because she was able to so easily to agree to get used even if it was in return of the favors her cousin did for her and she was also able to keep on lying when the opportunity presented itself so many times to tell David the truth. Then there was David's character who was so full of himself that he behaved as a pompous ass most of the time and even the fact that he almost raped Nora because he read her objection in the wrong way. I also did not understand how he was so rich if he did not take commission from his fundraising and he also blew his inheritance. The chemistry between Nora and David was scorching hot and very well written as was my favorite part of the book. The beginning of the book was slow because I felt that Patrica was over describing the surroundings and not getting to the point, but as the book went on it got better and at times I was unable to put the book down. I also would have liked to see more of David and Nora's relationship while they were getting to know each other better. I enjoyed this book and I would love to read the story of Alec and Patsy because of the glimpse I caught of them in this book.

Rating: 3/5


Plot

Know Me Well (Wishful #3)

Know Me Well



This is a sweet and nice small town romance which has its drama as well as small town charm. It was my first time reading a book by Kait Nolan and her writing style was good, however I did find some typos which is never a good sign.  I enjoyed the character development of Riley because she was a strong independent woman who was able to break her stubborn pattern. What is there not to love about Liam's character, he is protective, sweet, charming and romantic and the fact that he came home to take care of his family and is willing to do anything to make Riley happy makes him even more attractive.  The secondary characters were well written especially Autumn, the hopeless romantic and Liam's mother Molly with her match making tendencies.  The chemistry between Riley and Liam was average and I wished there was more of it especially when the the book began to drag. The first half of the book was captivating with all the drama going on, but once we got to the second half it become slow and boring and I really struggled to keep my attention on it which I thought was personally was one of the downfalls of this book. This was an okay book, but because of it's slow second half I will not be reading the rest of the series. 

Rating: 3/5

Forever Entangled (Forever Bluegrass #1)

Forever Entangled



Forever Entangled has everything I wanted from a book it has first love romance, close knit families, drama, danger, mystery and even a bit of jealousy. This was my first time reading a book by Kathleen Brooks and I loved her dual point of view writing style as well as the magical town of Keeneston which had one of the most close knit communities I have ever seen. I loved Ryan's character because he is this alpha protective male who would risk his life to save the woman he loves, but at the same time he is very family orientated which makes him the perfect man. Sienna's character was good, but I hated the fact that she turned him down before because he was a year smaller than her. The secondary characters in the book was well written and added the much needed humor in the book especially the older citizens of the town who were always placing bets on everyone's lives. I would have liked to see more chemistry between Ryan and Sienna especially more scenes about them discussing their feeling as well as their intimate moments. Also at times I did find the large number of characters in the book overwhelming at times epcially sice I had not read the other books in the Bluegrass series. I did enjoy this book and the magical town and look forward to reading the rest of this series as well as the other Bluegrass series.

Rating: 4/5


Plot

Dare to Take (Dare to Love #6)

Dare to Take



I am a huge fan of Carly Phillips and all her characters especially the Dare family, hence I could not resist reading the latest installment of the Dare to Love series.  This is the sixth book in the series and the best part is that all the books in this series can be read as a stand alone novel. Carly once again did not disappoint with her flawless and talented writing as well as with her strong and well conceived characters. I loved Tyler's alpha male character (which of course is a trait in all the Dare men) and the fact that he was able to recognize his flaws and change them. Ella was a strong and independent woman who had gotten used to surviving on her own and her ability to change her life despite her difficult childhood was what made her so likable to me. I enjoyed the fact that I got to see the Dare family characters from the previous books because it made me appreciate the series even more. The chemistry between Tyler and Ella was of the charts, but I also enjoyed seeing both of their characters mature throughout the book.  I also liked the little bit of danger and drama in the book, however I would have liked a little more mystery as the twist was quiet obvious from the start of the book. This was a brilliant book as well as series and I am always looking forward to reading a book by Carly Phillips as she is one of the most talented writers I have ever come across.

Rating: 4/5

One to Hold (One to Hold #1)

One to Hold



A short, sweet and sexy romance that will leave you wanting more after the last page. I had a feeling that I had this book before, but I could not quite remember, so I decided I have nothing to lose only a good story to gain. This was a great book with a touch of drama which I generally crave for in books. Melissa's character was brilliant because she was strong and independent as well as willing to learn from her mistakes and take control of her life, which is something I really admired about her. On the other hand I loved the strong alpha male characteristics of Derek, but I hated that he was lying to Melissa and also the fact that he knew Melissa was still married and still chased after her. I also enjoyed the secondary characters because they were well conceived and added to the content of the book. I really enjoyed Tia's style of writing because she made you feel the emotions that Melissa was going through, however I would have liked the book to be a bit longer and I would have also loved to see the book from a dual point of view as it would have enabled the reader to understand what was going through Derek's mind. The chemistry between Melissa and Derek was outstanding and I loved how they could not stay away from each other.. I really enjoyed this book and I am definitely going to be reading the rest of the series.

Rating: 4/5
