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


Plot

Logan Wild is an ex NAVY SEAL turned private investigator who loves getting justice and one night flings. When he meets Stella Stormy Knight, he craves more of her magnificent beauty.

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

Sutton Buchanan is a spoiled rich billionaire who will stop at nothing to get what he wants, including the curvy blonde artist he runs into at his newly acquired gallery.

The one promise Sutton has made to himself is that he wont make the same mistake as his cousins and fall in love with his plaything.

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. 

Paige Mitchell is a famous best selling author who has agreed to date Nate for mutual publicity, but she is determined to keep him at an arms length. Their relationship is meant to be pure business because Paige does not need a bad boy actor who will break her heart.

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

Dex Riley is an ex Navy Seal, who hides the darkness of his past in his soul. He is now content running an island adventure company, in the Caribbean, with a few of his fellow Navy Seal friends, that is until Emma, a resort guest, targets him for vacation fling.

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. 

Emma Locke, is a romance writer who lost her husband six years ago and now she is unable to find the inspiration to keep on writing her famous romance series. The only man who can inspire that passion in her again is off limits.

It is said that time heals all wounds, but will it be enough to help grow new love?

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.

Breakaway (Heller Brothers #1)

Breakaway



I am a huge fan of sports romance and this book did not disappoint me as it was both fun and romantic. This was my first time reading a book by Kelly Jamieson and I enjoyed her dual point of view writing style as well as her her well written characters. I loved Jase's character because he was able to get over his weaknesses and insecurities and make something of himself and he did not flash his money or bask in his popularity.  Remi's character was a bit annoying at times because she never though about herself and was always babying her siblings even though it was time for them to grow up. She also was very insecure when it came to Jase and was always doubting his reasons for being with her. The chemistry between Jase and Remi was scorching hot and was well conceived as their relationship was about more than just the physical aspect. I really enjoyed the book, but I felt that it lacked drama and that it was rushed at the end as I would have liked to see more about how they coped with their new situation. Overall this was a great sports romance and I am definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Rating: 4/5


Plot

Jase and Remi are both looking for a scorching not strings attached affair. Jase had recently broke up with his long time girlfriend because he did not want to commit and Remi, who is a school teacher, just saw the last of her younger siblings leave the nest.

Trophy Husband (Caught Up in Love #3)

Trophy Husband



I am generally a huge fan of Lauren Blakely and I have really enjoyed the Caught Up in Love  series thus far, but I was really disappointed with this book as a third installment to the series. This book lacks Lauren's powerful characters as well as her flawless writing style because I felt that most of this book was spent in McKenna's imaginary scenarios and less in the actual story. I also did not like the fact that this book was written in a single point if view writing style as it results in Chris's character lacking depth and us barely getting to know him well enough other than the fact that he is 29 years old and he is a gamer. McKenna's character was annoying due to her imagination as well as her being unable to move on with her life after her fiance left her and her having to prove a point of equality. The chemistry between McKenna and Chris was good, but not as scorching as we are used to in Lauren's books. Overall this was a an average read which did not live up to the brilliant series by a great author.

Rating: 2.5/5


Plot

McKenna Bell is a successful fashion blogger who is still recovering from her fiance leaving her a day before their wedding for another woman he met at his bachelors party. After running into her cheating ex and his new wife McKenna decides that is wrong that only men are allowed to get trophy wives, therefore she starts up an internet reality competition for a trophy husband.

After the competition is announced that is when Chris comes into the picture and he has everything that McKenna wants as he is handsome, successful and has amazing chemistry with her. McKenna will now have to come face to face with what she really wants in life which is either protecting her heart or letting go of the pain for a new beginning.

Playing for Keeps (Neighbor from Hell #1)

Playing for Keeps



When I downloaded this book I was not sure if I had read this book before because it sounded familiar, but once I started reading the book and I had realized that I read  the book a couple years ago, but I still could not put the book down as it was so funny. R.L Mathewson delivers a brilliant read with flawless writing and humorous characters which keep you interested and addicted to the book right till the end. I loved Jason's character even though he was immature and irritating at times because he had managed to bring Haley out of her shell and he was hilarious throughout the book especially with his obsession with food. Haley's character development was brilliant as she went fro a shy pushover to someone who was willing to stand up for herself and I loved the pranks she used to play on Jason as it kept you laughing. The chemistry between Jason and Haley was hot and I enjoyed that their relationship was more than just a physical attraction. The drama and back and forth at the end of the book did get annoying, but it did not take away completely from this awesome book. Overall this was a fun, light and sexy contemporary romance novel that will definitely leave you with a smile on your face.

Rating: 4/5


Plot

Haley has decided that she is done being a shy pushover when her annoying neighbor pulls the last straw by trying to destroy her garden. Little did Haley know that with her new attitude she will end up getting sucked into his world, but Haley has a game plan as she knows that her annoying but gorgeous neighbor has the power to break her heart.

The last thing that Jason expected was for hos shy neighbor to go all crazy on him over ruing her flowers. After their first encounter he decides to take her under his wing to help her change from the pushover that she has been, but he cant help notice that she fits perfectly into his life. Now he is left to convince her that their relationship is anything but a game.

Big Shot (Book Boyfriend #1)

Big Shot



As you all know I am a huge fan of Carly Phillips and her magnificent writing skills and when she combines with the powerhouse of Erika Wilde, they always manage to turn out a great book.  This was my second time reading a book by this duo and I found once again that their writing was flawless and their character development was much better than Dirty Sexy Saint. I loved Wes's character has he was the dominant alpha male who definitely earned the title of book boyfriend because he was both sexy and caring. I enjoyed that Natalie was an independent sassy woman who was trying to prove her worth to Wes in the business world after he had refused to give her a job. The chemistry between Wes and Natalie was combustible as expected when you read a book by Carly Phillips. I did feel the story was a bit short and I would have loved to see more than two weeks of their relationship. Overall this was a short, fun and sexy romance that will definitely leave you wanting more.

Rating: 4/5


Plot

Wes Sincalir is a bad boy and a notorious heart breaker whom no woman seems to be able to resist. That is except his business adversary and best friends little sister Natalie Prescott who seems to be unaffected with his charm and flirting. Even though Natalie has become a part of his dirty fantasies, she wants nothing to do with him. After losing a bet, Natalie is then forced to face her attraction to Wes and their combustible chemistry leads to them having a two week fling. Will Natalie be able to keep her heart out of sex with the man who she has always loved?

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


Plot

Claire Gracen is a brilliant marketing director who believes she has the perfect life, until she finds out that her husband has been cheating on her with her best friend. Broken and depressed Claire decides she needs to move to a new city, job and make new friends.

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.

Annabelle, is a beautiful young women who tends to be drawn to the athletic type, so when she is forced to take on former football legend Brandon Vaughn she is naturally attracted to me.

The chemistry between Brandon and Annabelle is undeniable and Annabelle soon learns that there is more to Brandon than just a hot jock. Annabelle must now hold on tight if she does not want to lose her heart.

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.

Jake Campbell is a tech billionaire who is tired of the gold digging superficial type ladies, so when his identical twin Josh asks him as a favor to step in as him on a date, Jake figure maybe the the shy regular type girl might be what he needs. After one date and a night of passion with the a regular girl, Jake decides he wants more, except she seems to have vanished.

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. Little did he know that his Australian mail order bride will turn his world upside down.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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


Plot

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


Plot

Cate Forbes, is a dedicated college student with a carefully plotted future, who does not know the first thing about love. After a drunken night she accepts a blind date with one of the hottest guys and she thinks that she can just tick it off as a night of fun, Cate's plans are slowly derailed when she gets a look at the sexy Drew McKnight.

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

One drunken night at Central College caused AnneMarie to lose her reputation and to become the girl who all guys considered easy and a slut. After that AM decided to stay away from Central social life and men, that is until she meets her irresistible biology partner.

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
