My Review 

TBB

This was one of my most anticipated books of 2017 and I am SO happy that I had a chance to get an early copy. I love anything that Jennifer Probst writes, but I particularly love this Billionaire Builders series. It’s full of family, real emotion, sexy times, and full of witty one liners. I found myself highlighting so many passages of this book because the writing is so beautiful. Just when I thought that this series couldn’t get any better, I was easily proven  wrong.

Since the first book left off with me wanting to know more about Raven’s past and her connection to the Pierce family. I loved watching all of the many layers of both Raven and Dalton being pulled back so that they realized just exactly how much they have in common and how alike they really are. I also really loved the slow burn of their relationship and the electric chemistry you could feel between them. Basically read this book because I don’t want to give away any spoilers since this is the second installment in this series. And I would recommend reading EVERYWHERE AND EVERY WAY first.

I really hope that this series never ends because it is Jen’s best work yet. I’m in love with all of her bitey, growly, alpha men that make up the Pierce brothers and I am now waiting with baited breath for Tristan’s story! You literally can’t just pick one man to love, you have to love them ALL! Hurry up, July!!

About Hit The Spot

Is this love or just a game?

Tori Rivera thinks Jamie McCade is rude, arrogant, and worst of all . . . the sexiest man she’s ever laid eyes on. His reputation as a player is almost as legendary as his surfing skills. No matter how her body heats up when he’s around, she’s determined not to be another meaningless hookup.

Jamie McCade always gets what he wants. The sickest wave. The hottest women. And Tori, with her long legs and smart mouth, is definitely the hottest one. He knows Tori wants him—hell, most women do—but she won’t admit it. After months of chasing and one unforgettable kiss, it’s time for Jamie to raise the stakes.

Jamie promises that soon Tori won’t just want him in her bed, she’ll be begging for it-and he might be right. Somehow he’s found the spot in her heart that makes her open up like never before. But with all she knows about his past, can she really trust what’s happening between them? Is Jamie playing for keeps or just playing to win?

My Review

1455058563923

Holy wow! I flew through this book in two days (this is not a short book) and had so much fun reading it. It’s full of fun sugary sweet, and sassy sexy fun! The chemistry between Jamie and Tori was off the charts hot. I LOVED it! Their flirting was what made this book such a joy to read.

Even though we met Jamie and Tori in the first installment in the Dirty Deeds series, FOUR LETTER WORD, we didn’t know too much about their backstory. We knew that they had a mutual attraction to each other, but tori was always acting like she couldn’t stand to be breathing the same air as Jamie. So I really appreciated that the prologue of this book went back to the first time that they met.

It took me awhile to warm up to Jamie because of some of the things that he says to Tori. He definitely has it in him to be a bit of an alpha asshole, which can also be some of the appeal to him. But once Jamie showed his other sweet and softer side, I couldn’t help but fall for him right along with Tori.

This book can be read as a standalone, but does feature appearances from the previous couple in the series. Overall, if you’re looking for a steamy, funny, flirty, and sweet read then HIT THE SPOT is the book for you.

Until next time,

xoxo, M

About ONE SNOWY NIGHT:

It’s Christmas Eve and Rory Andrews is desperate to get home to the family she hasn’t seen in years. Problem is, her only ride to Lake Tahoe comes in the form of the annoyingly handsome Max Stranton, and his big, goofy, lovable dog Carl.

Hours stuck in a truck with the dead sexy Max sounds like a fate worse than death (not), but Rory’s out of options. She’s had a crush on Max since high school and she knows he’s attracted to her, too. But they have history… and Max is the only one who knows why it went south.

They’ve done a good job of ignoring their chemistry so far, but a long road trip in a massive blizzard might be just what they need to face their past… and one steamy, snowy night is all it takes to bring Max and Rory together at last.

EXCERPT:

Christmas Eve had the nerve to show up just like it did every year: way too quickly and with ridiculous fanfare.

The nerve.

Rory Andrews stood in the courtyard of the Pacific Pier Building in San Francisco, surrounded by sparkly holiday lights and enough garlands to give the place its own ozone, and told herself things could be worse.

She just wasn’t sure how.

It was the unknown, she decided. Because this year, unlike the past six, she’d be spending Christmas with her family, a thought that caused a swarm of butterflies to take flight in her belly.

Not an uncommon feeling since she’d turned twenty-three a few months back and decided it was time to become a person she could be proud of if it killed her. And given the guy leaning against one of the lamp poles clearly waiting for her, arms crossed, frown in place, it just might.

Max Stranton. At his side sat Carl, his huge, eternally hungry, adorable Doberman.

“No,” she said, not to Carl but to Carl’s owner. Who was not lovable. “No way.”

As always when their gazes locked, Max’s was a disconcerting mix of heat and…something else that she couldn’t quite figure out, as he was good at hiding when he wanted to be. She never quite knew how to take the heat because it seemed reluctant. He was attracted to her but didn’t want to be.

Ditto. He made her knees wobble. And also a couple of other inner reactions that shouldn’t be happening in public.

“Merry Christmas to you too, Rory,” he said, and damn. It wasn’t just his eyes. His voice was rough and sexy, and for that matter, so was the rest of him.

He worked for an investigations and security firm in the building. Basically he and the rest of his team were fixers and finders for hire. To say that Max was good at his job was an understatement. He stood there looking like sex on a stick with a duffle bag slung over a broad shoulder, his dark hair two weeks past needing a cut, and the icy wind of an incoming storm plastering his clothes to a body that could be registered as a lethal weapon.

“What are you doing here?” she asked calmly even if her heart was anything but, pounding all the way up to her throat and ears because she knew. She knew exactly why he was here. “I don’t need a ride home.”

A flash of wry humor slid in with all that sizzling heat. “Because you’d rather take two buses and a train than get into my truck with me?” he asked.

Well yes, actually.

My Review

Hearts

 

It’s no secret that I’m a HUGE Jill Shalvis fan and love any and everything that she writes. I especially love her little in between the numbers novellas with her series they give you a look into minor side characters lives that you’ve always been wondering about. You also get a little something to tide you over until the next full length book is released. Also, if you’ve ever been curious about Jill’s funny, witty, and heartfelt writing, one of her novellas is a good place to jump in and try her out. They’re also read great as a complete standalone as her series are more about interconnected characters in the same town.

This story follows Rory and Max who are headed home to Tahoe on Christmas Eve and become unexpectedly stranded in the horrible weather. I loved this book because the pacing was perfect and and it also had just the right amount of steam and heart. This might just be a short story, but I felt that I really got to know Rory and Max as people and why they care for each other so deeply. The evolution of their relationship never felt rushed. This was easily another 5 cubes of sugar rating for me and I can’t wait to see what happens next in the Heartbreaker Bay series.

 Until Next Time

XOXO,

ARC Review: A Sure Thing by Marie Harte

BLURB

“A blazing hot, emotionally intense love story launches a new series from an author on the rise.” Kirkus for A SURE THING

Praise for Marie Harte’s McCauley Brothers series:

“Funny, addicting, and full of hot sex scenes.” – Booklist

Meet the Donnigans

With the eldest Donnigan brothers adjusting to civilian life, their younger sister constantly in trouble, and their little brother clueless about life in general, falling in love is the last thing on anyone’s mind…

Can this Bossy Badass Marine…

The Marine Corps was everything Landon Donnigan ever wanted in life…until a bullet sent him home with a medical discharge. Teaching a self-defense class at the gym is old-hat for a marine, but when he meets sexy Ava Rosenthal, his combat skills are useless for protecting his heart.

Be her Mr. Right?

Ava can take care of herself and likes quiet, bookish men-not muscular warriors who think women need to be coddled. But Landon is more than he seems, and when they come together, the results are explosive.

My Review

1463419018424

I’ve always loved how easy it is to get into a Marie Harte book. And even if you’ve never read her McCauley Series, a new reader would have no problem jumping feet first into this world with the Donnigans. But the thing that I loved most about this book was how interconnected the McCauley’s, Bad Boy Body Shop, and Donnigan series are. It’s so nice to see other characters popping up to make cameos, or hearing about how a favorite couple is doing. Totally warms my heart. These books all have a small town feel without feeling like you’re jumping into the middle of a 15 book series and being lost because you didn’t start at the beginning.

I have been patiently   waiting to hear about the Donnigan family who just happen to be the McCauley’s cousins. I am beyond happy to be back in this world that takes place in Seattle and the cozy Queen Anne neighborhood. I absolutely LOVED Landon and Ava! These have to be two of the most fleshed out romance characters that I’ve read in a long time. Maybe, EVER! And this book was laugh out loud funny! I was hoping that people couldn’t hear me snort laughing in my car while I was reading during my lunch breaks.

Landon Donnigan is one of the most complex alpha characters that I’ve read and it just made me love him even more. He’s type A. bossy, smart, quick on his feet with a comeback, protective, sweet, and sexy. Landon is recently out of the military and adjusting to civilian life. He’s been casually dating, but hasn’t found a woman that he really wants to spend time with until he meets Ava at the gym. When they first meet, they have serious burn your e-reader to ashes chemistry. I’m still fanning myself. Dr. Ava Rosenthal is a clinical psychologist who is a woman I could easily be best friends with. She’s sarcastic, snarky, intelligent, independent, witty, and sassy.

Landon and Ava together are serious real life relationship goals. Their witty back and forth banter is what dreams are made of. I love how much they were able to have fun with each other in and out of bed. And how much they actually truly got to know each other. Nothing was implied, you felt like you were getting to know them as individuals and as a couple. I really enjoyed how this book wasn’t just about Landon and Ava, but also the supporting cast of characters as well. Both of their families play major rolls in their lives, and you can tell that how much they all love and care for each other. Even when they are annoyed and feel like punching someone in the gut. Elliot, Ava’s cousin and best friend has to be one of the best supporting characters in this book. He has some of the best one liners and had me cackling to myself like a crazy person.

“Oh? Want to bet on the size of his package? I saw you’re wrong about it being tiny. That man is totally rocking the hammock.”

“The what?” 

He grinned. “The banana hammock? You know, his stretchy underwear to make room for all that…maleness.” 

HA! The man could totally be on a character on Will & Grace! I’m holding Marie to writing a book for Elliot and his smexy love interest. I need and want! Have to have it! I also can’t wait to have the next books in this series. JUST THE THING isn’t out until July 4, 2017. *Sad jazz hands* Until then, I at least have the first two books in the Body Shop Bad Boys series to keep me occupied.

Even though this book wasn’t all about the sexy times with Landon and Ava, when we finally did get to them, they were complete FIRE. Just an amazing balance of dirty, sweet, and sexy. Really the whole book was a great balance between substance and sex, so I’m easily calling this now as my #1 favorite book of 2016. It really was just perfect. Between the fun, witty one-liners and how much Marie made it a point to show that it’s ok to seek out therapy and how normal it is, no matter how strong you are or are perceived to be. With each new book that she releases, her writing skills just become better and better. She will always be an auto-buy author for me.

So if you love Jill Shalvis and Tessa Bailey, then Marie Harte is a perfect combination of the two and she will end up becoming one of your favorite authors as well.

Until next time

XOXO,

Excerpt

 

“Can I kiss you goodnight?” Charles asked. A gentleman to his bones.

“Please.” She met his kiss on her cheek and blushed. “I look forward to our dinner.”

“Me too.” He looked flushed and brushed back a strand of hair that slipped over his forehead.

“Can I walk you to your car?”

“I’m parked right next to yours.” Which sat directly out front thanks to the timely departure of two couples earlier. “But I need to use the facilities before I leave. Go on without me. I’ll call you later in the week.”

He nodded “Sounds great. Have a good day tomorrow, Ava.”

“You too.” She watched him leave, ignored blond guy staring at her with what seemed to be a smirk, then searched for the ladies’ room. Once finished, she had every intention of leaving and not looking back.

But she paused next to blond guy and, noting the still-open seat, she sat.

“You.” She glared at him.

“Ava, huh? Pretty name.” He turned in his seat and grinned down at her while guzzling a beer.

“And you are?”

“Landon.” His grin nearly did her in, because his whole face lit up with joy, making it seem as if he’d brought the sun into the darkened restaurant. “But I’m sure there are a few other names you’d like to call me.”

“What is your problem?”

“Me? I’m good.” Before she could lay into him, he added, “But you’re not.”

She blinked. “What’s my problem, besides you?”

“You and boring guy.”

She frowned. “That’s not a nice thing to say.”

“Yeah, I’m not known for nice. But I’m honest. Honey, Charles is not the guy for you.”

“Excuse me, but Charles was a perfect gentleman.”

A jazz band started playing in the corner, making it harder to hear, so he leaned closer. Unfortunately, she got a good whiff of his cologne, and it went straight to her head. Just her luck Landon smelled like a dream.

She cleared her throat. “And my name is not ‘honey’. It’s Ava.” She would have added Dr. Ava Rosenthal in a haughty tone, except Landon’s breath brushed her ear, and her entire body locked up. Tight.

“Ava, you need someone that makes you hot. Boring is no good. Not for someone like you.”

She’d swear his lips touched her, and her system seemed to go haywire. Her breasts tightened, she got a funny feeling in the pit of her stomach, and she clenched her thighs together, feeling a lower torso shiver from out of nowhere.

“Like me?” She felt weak and slowly pulled back.

Except that put her at eye level with the man a breath away. He was so close she saw gold flecks in the irises surrounding pinpoints of focus, directed at her. His cheekbones were high, his nose straight, arrogant, his chin square. Manly. His firm lips parted when he inhaled, as if breathing her in.

“Like you.” He leaned closer and kissed her with the softest press of his lips, then pulled back as if he’d never been there. “Damn.” He drained the rest of his beer then asked for his tab. After taking a deep breath, he let it out and turned to her once more. Landon stared at her mouth, then at her top, still visible because she hadn’t yet zipped up her coat.

Despite the sweater that covered her from neck to waist, she felt almost naked as his gaze roamed her breasts before lazily working back up to her face. “When you come back to the gym, ask for me.”

“Wh-what?” she put a finger over her tingling lips. “Why?”

He chuckled. “Suspicious little thing, hmm?” He pulled at her hair, tugging on the long strands.

She frowned and tugged it back.

His smile grew. “We’re thinking of starting a self-defense class at the gym. It’s a good thing for women in the dating scene, especially.”

“To protect them from pawing men?” She glanced at her hair, then his hand.

His eyes glowed with mirth. “You should always know how to protect yourself.” He leaned closer. “But never from a guy like me.”

Cover Reveal: Lucian Divine by Renee Carlino

luciandivine_03-1-1-1

 

 

luciandivine_03-1-1-1“My guardian angel is a drunk.”

Evelyn Casey’s life is at a standstill. She’s in her mid-twenties, struggling with the dating scene in San Francisco. Nothing seems to be working out, and she’s starting to think that she’ll live out her days in her crummy apartment with her overbearing roommate, Brooklyn. It’s absurd, but sometimes Evey longs for a guardian angel to show up and save the day.

And then he does. Seriously. His name is Lucian and he’s a guardian angel, been on the job for two thousand years. His sudden presence in her life is both good—he’s brilliant, witty, and warm—and bad—he’s brilliant, witty, warm, and hot as —-. But as perfect as Lucian seems, he’s got problems of his own. He’s taken up drinking and he’s brazenly inserted himself into Evey’s life, going against the greatest cosmic law ever created.

For Evey, the rules are simple: You are not allowed to hook up with your guardian angel. But sometimes fulfilling your destiny requires a leap of faith, a confrontation with God.

Yes, God as in God.

sweetcheeks_frontcoverAn all new second chance love story by the New York Times Bestselling author of the beloved Driven series.

It all started with the invitation. To my ex-fiance’s new wedding.

I should have ignored it. Thrown it away. Set it afire. But I didn’t. I replied.

With a plus one.

And then my assistant accidentally mailed it.

Enter Hayes Whitley. Mega-movie star. The man who has captured the hearts of millions. But I gave him mine years ago. He was my first love. He was my everything. Right until he up and left to chase his dreams without so much as a simple goodbye.

When he showed up out of the blue ten years later, I should have known to steer clear of him. I should have rejected his offer to take me to my ex’s wedding. I should have never let him kiss me.

But I didn’t.

And now we’re left wondering if the pieces of the life we once shared still fit together somehow. First loves are hard to forget. The question is, do we want to forget? Or do we risk the chance and see what happens next?

dsc_0087New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.

She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.

On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift), and a novella (UnRaveled). She is currently finishing up Sweet Cheeks a standalone novel out November 14th.

Her plans for 2017 include a sports romance duet (2 books: The Player, The Catch) and the Everyday Heroes series (3 books: Cuffed, Combust, and Cockpit). She’s also writing a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series that will be out in February 2017.

She loves to hear from her readers so make sure you check her out on social media.

If she has her way…

Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn’t even remember her…

…He’ll get nothing but coal in his stocking.

Unless he tempers “naughty” with a special kind of nice…

Willa sighed and headed to the door.

Again Keane held the pink bedazzled cat carrier, which should have made him look ridiculous. Instead it somehow upped his testosterone levels. His sharp eyes were on her but they turned warm in a way that melted her right through her center as she moved toward him. She stopped with the glass door between them, hands on hips, hoping she looked irritated even if that wasn’t quite what she was feeling.

His gaze lowered from her face to run over her body, which gave her another unwelcome rush of heat. Dammit. Now she was irritated and aroused—not a good combo.

His mouth quirked at the saying on her apron that read Dear Santa, I Can Explain.

Drawing a deep breath, she opened the door. “You’ve got Petunia again. I hope that means your great-aunt Sally isn’t still sick.”

He looked surprised that she’d remembered his aunt’s name, or that she’d care. “I don’t know,” he said a little gruffly. “She left me a message saying that I was in charge for the rest of the week but for two days now Pita’s been happily destroying my jobsite. I’m throwing myself on your mercy here. Can you help?”

Wow. He must be really desperate since he was actually asking and not assuming. But since Petunia was a sweetheart, she knew she’d do it.

“I’ll even tell you where I went to high school,” he said, adding a smile that was shockingly charming.

Wow. He hadn’t lost his touch when it came to turning it on. “Not necessary,” she said, painfully aware of their audience.

Keane’s attention was suddenly directed upward, just above her head. She followed his line of sight and found a sprig of mistletoe hanging from the overhead display of small portable doggy pools. Mistletoe? What the hell? She glanced behind her and what do you know, suddenly Rory and Cara were a flurry of movement racing around looking very, very busy. “When did the mistletoe go up?” she asked them. “And why?”

“FOMO,” Cara said from behind the counter.

“Fear of missing out,” Rory translated. “She was hoping a hot guy would come in and the mistletoe would give her an excuse.”

Willa narrowed her eyes and her two soon-to-be-dead employees scattered again.

“Interesting,” Keane said, looking amused.

“I’m not kissing you.”

His mouth curved. “If you take Pita for the day, I’ll kiss you.”

“Not necessary,” she said, gratified no one could see her heart during the two-step in her ears. “I’ll take Petunia for the day. No kiss required or wanted.”

Liar, liar
