Insatiable Bachelor (Bachelor Tower Series, Book 1) by Ruth Cardello

Review:

Insatiable Bachelor (Bachelor Tower Series, Book 1) - Ruth Cardello

 

Life is not a restaurant, not everything goes your way. The residents of Bachelor Tower are about to get schooled in the ways of the world. Beginning with the hunky Dalton. Insatiable Bachelor turns sexism on it's head while two-stepping between edgy and flirtatious. Penny finds more than she bargained for when a family favor lands her in a ton of hot water. What begins as a favor becomes a tempting battle of wills between an annoying neighbor and a building full of testosterone. Dalton is the jerk you love to hate, but can't keep off your mind. Kudos to Ms. Cardello for her ability to create heroines that are not afraid to speak their mind, even if it costs them their heart. There is no walking away from Penny and Dalton. I was hooked from the first page.

About FORBIDDEN LYRICS


Falling in love with your best friend's sister is never a good idea. Getting caught kissing her, that's even worse.
I watched Lizzie Donovan grow up - from pigtails and scraped knees to pouty lips and lush curves.
It wasn't until one night nine years ago in the front seat of her car, with her lips on mine, that I realized what I was feeling was far more than friendship.
Of course, I felt her brother's wicked left hook shortly after.
One promise was all it took to push her away.
Not anymore.
This is my chance.
I have three months to convince her that she's the song in my heart and we're more than just forbidden lyrics.

Forbidden Lyrics (Lightning Strikes #3)Forbidden Lyrics by Jodie Larson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


It's fitting that Ms. Larson titled Brecken and Lizzie's story Forbidden Lyrics. Their voyage is haunting, like a melody that stays firmly embedded on your heart and an ever repeated lyric that sets up residence in your mind. The best love song is the one that imprints itself on the soul. Forbidden Lyrics is right up there with the power ballads. Whether frustrated, tempted or heartbreaking, this couple knows how to make readers feel. That's a glowing recommendation for an author in my opinion.

Read an excerpt from FORBIDDEN LYRICS



The house lights dim, leaving the whole place practically in darkness. A hush falls over the crowd as if the lack of light was in control of their voices. Pretty sure we’re the only table that knows what’s about to happen.
The steady beat of a drum, counting out a punishing rhythm break through the silence. A bass guitar joins in, followed closely by two more guitars. It’s a pattern I’ve heard all my life. Each instrument getting its turn to take the spotlight before coming together as a whole.
A spotlight cuts through the darkness and every girl in the room loses their mind before rushing the stage. Flashes from cell phones compete against the swirling lights illuminating the dance floor. The four of them stand there, perfectly comfortable in their surroundings, taking command of the area. Kade winds at the girls in front while Myles struts his stuff along the right side of the stage. You can barely see Pax’s head above the drum set, but every once in a while, you sneak a glimpse of his smile.
But that’s not what I’m focusing on. No, I’m drawn to the one standing off to the side, keeping a constant rhythm and not drawing as much attention to himself. Damn. If I thought Breck looked good sitting on a bar stool, he looks a million times better with a spotlight shining directly on him.

SERENADING THE SHADOWS


No one should have their life planned out at the age of three. Yet that’s exactly what happened to Adrienne Carmichael. Paving the way as the “piano prodigy” was all her parents wanted…Only she didn’t.
All she wished for was to be normal, to be a regular teenager and everything that came with it—including the decisions that would shape her life.
Wish granted.
Ten years later, scarred and broken, she knows that being alone isn’t everything she imagined. The piano is finally everything, except nobody will ever hear her play again.
All that changes when a sexy-as-sin rock god blows into her life. Tall and tattooed with jet-black hair and a dangerous bad boy smile…he’s every girl’s fantasy.
To her, he's a distraction, yet Kade Evans is everything she shouldn't want.
Instinct tells her to run, but she can’t get him out of her mind.
But may, just maybe he can be the one to pull her from the shadows before the darkness swallows her…for good.

NOTES OF THE PAST


I love women.

And it’s easy to see why. Being the lead guitarist for the country’s hottest band, Lightning Strikes, has them practically jumping into my bed and walking out the door just as quick. Which is perfect for me. Emotions complicate things, and I don’t do complicated.

Not anymore.

Sure, I was in love once, and it was great. Then it was gone. That’s when I vowed never again. Life is better without empty, broken promises.

After five years of hard work, sacrifices, and determination, everything I’ve ever wanted is in my grasp: a successful career, touring city after city and being accountable to no one.

Then she starts appearing in the crowds. The girl I once loved, and who walked away.

Only, Tatum Mitchell wasn’t just any girl; she was my girl.

Will she be the wedge that drives the last part of my heart away, or will she break down the walls I’ve built. We’re connected through the lyrics of our heart and the notes of our past, but is that enough?

Billionaire Unloved: The Billionaire's Obsession - Jett by J.S. Scott

Review:

Billionaire Unloved: The Billionaire's Obsession ~ Jett - J. S. Scott

 

Count on J.S. Scott to take readers out of their comfort zone. Billionaire Unloved delivers chills, thrills and heals. Ruby is a fighter. Her courage brings her through the danger that follows her, the despair that lives within her and the hope that saves her. At the worst of times, she finds a dark angel to bring her home. Jett is no white knight. More like a tainted soul. He may be her savior, but can she be his redemption? Even in the darkest moments, Ms. Scott knows how to inspire. Her stories find hope in hopelessness. I had too many feelings to count, so I'll sum it up in one word. Breathless.

Helping Her Remember (Crawford Falls) by Kate Carley


Review:
Helping Her Remember (The Crawford Falls Series Book 1) - Kate Carley

The key to learning from mistakes is forgiving yourself for making them. For Dylan and Kelly it's a long road and a high price to a new beginning.What began with promise spun out of control, ending in pain. Now years later and older fate may be giving these former lovebirds a second chance, but not before the secrets hit the fan. Helping Her Remember sets course for redemption. Ms. Charley stirs up emotions with a romance that is as intoxicating as it is heartbreaking and even at the most wrenching of moments, never is it not captivating.

KIAN (UNDERCOVER BILLIONAIRE) BY MELODY ANNE

 

 

 

Release DateFebruary 20, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne’s sizzling novel of ex-lovers locked again in a game of hearts.

There was a time when surgeon Kian Forbes would have surrendered every cent of his vast family fortune if it could make Roxie Gilbert happy. That was before she skipped town, broke his heart, and sent him spinning through a string of forgettable one-night stands. He never even knew he’d fathered a child—with Roxie’s sister, no less. But in the wake of tragedy, little Lily needs a home. And Kian wants his daughter. But Roxie’s not giving in or giving up without a fight.

Fearful of her intense feelings for Kian, Roxie ran. Now that her sister’s death has brought her home, she intends to take custody of her niece and avoid Kian—easier said than done on both counts. With their wealth and power, the Forbes men are accustomed to winning. And as she and Kian are forced to spend time together for Lily’s sake, saying no to everything he wants proves impossible…even though it means risking both their hearts all over again.

Kian (Undercover Billionaire, #1)Kian by Melody Anne

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I always look forward to reading a Melody Anne novel. Her stories are profound, her characters relatable and the romances turbulent, to say the least. With Kian, she pulled a fast one on me. I went into the experience thinking: "How am I supposed to enjoy a story where I don't like the characters very much?" and came out reminded of what a talent this author really is. She has to be in order to get me to love any type of story with medical terminology. Kian and Roxie have a past that has stalked them into their present day life. When tragedy reunites them, secrets are exposed, hurts are revealed and passions reawakened. What happens when the passion of the past becomes the storm of the future? Kian and Roxie were a work in progress that painstakingly turned heartache into a lesson in forgiveness. Bravo, Ms. Anne!

ROCK KING (NOTHING BUT TROUBLE) BY TARA LEIGH

 

 

 

Release DateFebruary 20, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Fans of Kristen Callihan and Kylie Scott will scream for this sizzling bad boy rock star romance!

I'm not who you think I am.

Shane Hawthorne has it all. At least, that's what the headlines say about me. I have millions of fans, awards, more money - and women - than I know what to do with. But what you don't see is the wreckage I've caused. The memories and pain I can't escape, even when I pour them into music and spin them into gold.

I tried to forget. To lose myself in booze and groupies. It didn't work. It hurt me and - worse - it hurt my band. That's the last thing I want to do, so I'm cleaning up my act... starting with Delaney Fraser.

Gorgeous, smart, drama-free, and even nice - Delaney is the perfect "girlfriend." When I'm with her I don't have to pretend. It's like she sees the real me. And I can see a future with her. But that's dangerous. Because the truth is, Shane Hawthorne doesn't actually exist. He's a shield to hide who I really am. Fraud. Runaway. Addict. Murderer.

And it's impossible to love a lie, right?

REVIEWROCK KING (NOTHING BUT TROUBLE) BY TARA LEIGH

 

Rock King (Nothing but Trouble, #1)Rock King by Tara Leigh

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Shane is a mirage. He knows how to shine, but he's better at knowing how to self destruct. Underneath the bright lights, he can be what the people wants. An untouchable, larger than life rock star. Behind closed doors he falls apart. He breaks hearts, ruin friendships and tortures himself with the demons of his past. He wants to be saved, but is not willing to rescue himself. Delaney is the epitome of what his heart desires, but not necessarily what his heart needs. She's a showstopper in more ways than even he knows. Her secrets are less obvious but still exist. Tara Leigh has become a favorite author of mine. She's not afraid to show the dark side of fame, wealth and love. The side we all know to exist, but refuse to see. Rock King is an on the edge romance that is toxic, tempting and touching. Delaney and Shane are caught in a masquerade of their own making, Can they survive the big reveal?

DRIVING WHISKEY WILD (THE WHISKEYS) BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

 

 

Release DateFebruary 21, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

A captivating new sexy standalone romance by New York Timesbestselling author Melissa Foster.

Special Forces veteran and Dark Knights Motorcycle Club member Bullet Whiskey lives to protect his family, their bar, and the residents of his small hometown. He’s rough, unapologetic, and haunted by a secret, painful past. He’s also a master at keeping people away, and when his sister hires gorgeous and sweet Finlay Wilson to help expand their biker bar, he knows just how to get rid of her.

After losing her boyfriend and her father, Finlay moves back to her hometown to be closer to the little family she has left. She needs her temporary job at Whiskey Bro’s to get her catering business off the ground, and she’s determined not to let the gruff, arrogant mountain of a man Bullet Whiskey scare her off.

Finlay is everything Bullet has never wanted. She’s afraid of his dog, afraid of motorcycles, and sweet enough to give him cavities, but as she weaves her way into the hearts of everyone around him, he’s powerless to resist her charms. Passion ignites, but trust doesn’t come easily, and when their pasts collide, Bullet finds out the true meaning of protecting those he loves.

Driving Whiskey Wild (The Whiskeys, #3)Driving Whiskey Wild by Melissa Foster

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


"Don't go after your sweetheart with your brawn, baby. Go after her with your heart.

That's the biggest and best thing that sets you apart from every other tough guy out there." (Excerpt- Driving Whiskey Wild by Melissa Foster - Red & Bullet, a mother's heartfelt words to her son)
 

Not often do I stumble across the perfect words to describe my feelings, but Ms. Foster made it easy. With a limited amount of words, she summed up the enigma that is Brandon "Bullet" Whiskey. Bullet looked like a warrior, but he had the heart of a champion. I've read many Melissa Foster novels and although I have loved all of them, the Whiskeys are my favorite characters of hers. Why? This family proves that a good heart shouldn't be judged by how you look, but the things you do. The Whiskeys may look tough and at times act tough, but their greatest strength is their ability to love unconditionally. Bullet has to learn to trust his heart when he finds his soulmate. Finlay is his greatest weakness, but she could be his everlasting reward. Not many authors have a direct line to the heart, Melissa Foster has that gift and she does wonders with it.

Release DateFebruary 13, 2018

 

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

What’s better than one bad-boy boss? How about two?

In a duet of naughty novellas, a charity date auction turns into all-out war when a pair of powerful corporate lawyers each buy the other’s assistant for a weekend of seduction.

HIS PRICE


I’ve wanted Aria Finley from the moment I met her.
We flirt, we laugh, we connect. It could be perfect.
She’s even best friends with my assistant.
Problem is, she works for my archnemesis—Jackson Keller—and she’s the kind of girl who stays loyal unless you give her a reason not to.
Besides my hard-on there’s something hot between us, and I won’t rest until I put my finger on it.
So when I get the chance to buy Aria for the weekend at a charity auction, there’s no limit.
I’m going to take her home and take what I want because I’ll make her want it too.
And by Monday, she’ll know she’s mine.

DIRTY MONEY


Liam Maxwell thinks he can get to me through my assistant, Aria.
Well, two can play that game.
Now Mallory Beckett—Liam’s assistant and Aria’s best friend—is mine for the weekend.
Only she has no idea who bought her at the charity auction.
This is going to be worth every penny.
But soon I realize that Mallory has been waiting for my touch all along.
What starts as a fling turns into something more.
From the beginning, I was so focused on stealing her away. 
I never thought about the fact that I’d drown if I lost her.  
Now the game has changed. And she needs to know that she belongs to me.

Bought by the BossBought by the Boss by Stacey Kennedy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


When it comes to romance, nobody can set off the sprinklers like Stacey Kennedy. Bought by the Boss is at it's best when It's being decidedly wicked. Alpha males, hot tempered women and scandalous secrets set the stage for naughtiness in this spicy battle of hearts.

His Price - She's his heart's desire. He's her greatest temptation. Instant attraction has repercussions for feuding enemies and any woman brash enough to get in the way. Aria is caught between trusting her heart on a stranger or risking a friendship that means the world to her. Liam is a man with an agenda. He just has to figure out for himself, what he's willing to risk to get it. Liam and Aria are a steamy combination of lust, love and risk.

Dirty Money - Sex, lies and heartache await. Can a romance built on half truths survive? One Night sets off a chain of events that could be their undoing. Mallory wants to be loved. Jackson wants to feel needed. One auction is the beginning of a surprising revelation for both. Too bad their chance may have come too late. Temptation awaits.

Running the family’s original hotel, the Romano Resort, on the island of Sicily, is a job he’s never felt fated to revive. However, now that his brothers have done their parts in securing and remodeling the hotel, it’s up to Leonardo to do what he does best: entice visitors to revel in the lap of luxury.

Stella Brown is on her last strike. As a historical preservationist she’s just committed the mortal sin of losing a historical property to modern renovations, therefore losing a piece of history. Forever. Now Stella is tasked with proving she can still do her job by halting the Romano Resort’s extravagant renovations and getting them to conform to international preservation laws. Stella isn’t a pushy person, but she’s ready to go to war to save this little piece of Sicily. 

But Stella finds it’s not just the island that’s stunning: the man who owns the resort is gorgeous too. Beautiful and bold, Leonardo is no stranger to bending laws and women to his will, but in Stella he’ll find a sunny beauty with a spine of steel -- one that’s ready to shut down the hotel rather than see its historical significance erased in swaths of cashmere and gold plated toilets. As the two connect over their desire to see the Hotel Romano refinished properly, they’ll find their views of each other building to passionate proportions. As time runs out and luxury continues to battle with laws, they’ll have to decide if compromise is possible or if everything will turn to dust.

REVIEW ITALIAN BILLIONAIRE'S DETERMINED LOVER (THE ROMANO BROTHERS) BY LESLIE NORTH 

 

The Italian Billionaire's Determined Lover (The Romano Brothers Series Book 3)Italian Billionaire's Determined Lover by Leslie North

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Who will win this battle of hearts? She needs her confidence back. He thrives on doing things his way. Stella and Leonardo are a firework. They set off sparks at first meeting, but the actual burst takes a bit more time. Italian Billionaire's Determined Lover is about being true to yourself, even at the risk of losing your heart. Stella and Leonardo bring a tension that is palpable and a fire that is consuming to their tango of heated words, battered hearts and strong personalities. They bring out the best in each other at the worst of times. Am sad to see the series end.

SYNOPSIS

 

Whoever heard of a mail-order bride in the 21st century? Julianne Dawson had mixed emotions driving across the country to marry the cowboy she remembered from summers at her uncle's ranch. Anxious to leave her former life behind, is she delusional in thinking that a rancher's wife would offer her the life she wants?

Desperate actions needed to keep the family ranch. No one in their right mind sends off for a bride he's doesn't know—not in this day and age. Yet Blake Reynolds does exactly that. He'll do anything to keep the family ranch even marry a virtual stranger—as long as she can produce a child within the year.

Can a marriage of convenience for both the bride and groom end in happiness for either, or is necessity the only driving force in this arrangement?
