THE BILLIONAIRE BEAST (BILLIONAIRE FAIRYTALES) BY JACKIE ASHENDEN

 

 

Release Date:  March 7, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

 

Dark, tortured, and intimidating, these dominant billionaires will steal their innocent heroines' breath away. Overwhelmed by their desire to control their world, they push their heroines to explore their deepest desires. But even the most unworldly of heroines can unlock these billionaires' secrets.

Nero de Santis: Damaged. Bastard. Beast.

 

Nero hasn’t left his house in ten years—he demands the world come to him, and the world is only too happy to bend to the strong-willed billionaire. Ruthless, cold, and selfish, Nero wants for nothing and takes care of no one but himself. His last handful of assistants have left his house in tears, but the prim redhead applying for the job looks up to the task. Nero has spent his life shut within the walls he built, with no care to have more than a window to the outside world. But the fiery passion he senses beneath his reserved assistant’s exterior makes him want to break down the barriers he lives behind, and unleash the beast within.

 

Phoebe Taylor: Uptight. Misunderstood. Engaged.

 

Phoebe needs the obscene amount of money that comes with being Nero’s personal assistant for one thing, and one thing only—to pay for the mounting hospital costs that her fiancee’s two-year coma continues to incur. She’s heard rumors that the de Santis beast is a force that cannot be tamed—but even she isn’t prepared to handle the smoldering intensity simmering beneath his hard shell of feral dominance. Nero is hiding something, something he is fighting with every step he takes. Yet he can’t help but stake his claim on this woman who has shaken up his life, and Phoebe can’t believe this animal of a man is the one person to ever look into her eyes and see her soul. Nero wants to keep her. He wants to devour her. And Phoebe just might let him.

REVIEWTHE BILLIONAIRE BEAST (BILLIONAIRE FAIRYTALES) BY JACKIE ASHENDEN

 

The Billionaire Beast (Billionaire Fairy Tales, #2)The Billionaire Beast by Jackie Ashenden

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


ARC Review: The Billionaire Beast (Billionaire Fairytales) by Jackie Ashenden

She needs a little mystery in her life. He has a lot of darkness in his soul. The Billionaire Beast is a seductive tango of tragic events, intense characters and a sensually energized dance of love. Jackie Ashenden is well known for her deeply troubled, challenging and alluring heroes. Larger than life, broken inside but capable of more than the pain that shadows their existence. Nero is equally stunning in his turbulent behavior and bad boy image. He craves a chance at stepping into the light, but has allowed the fear and turmoil of his past to imprison him. Will he ever escape the chasm of pain that surrounds him? Or will one slip of a woman prove to be his downfall? The Billionaire Beast expounds on the best parts of a turbulent tale that begins in darkness and ends in light. Redeeming story.

ROMANCING DR. LOVE (STERLING UNIVERSITY) BY REBECCA HEFLIN

 

 

Release Date:  March 7, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Dr. Samantha Love says it’s all about the chemistry. A brainy psychology professor and researcher, Sam has based her entire academic career on the theory that what we call love is simply a chemical reaction. She is currently running a study to prove that her compatibility blood test reveals perfect matches—sort of like an organ donor, but for relationships. No romance required.

 

Along comes sexy literature professor, Dr. Ethan Quinn, who says it’s all about the romance. He thinks the pretty psychology professor has taken love and all its mysteries and reduced it to something as romantic as a cholesterol test, and he sets out to prove her theory wrong.

 

When Ethan signs up for her study, Sam discovers to her horror, that according to her compatibility test, they are a perfect match. Sam faces an existential crisis over her career and her research. If she believes in her science, shouldn’t it follow that she believes Ethan is her perfect mate? And if she doesn’t believe he’s her perfect mate, doesn’t that bring into question her research? Her compatibility test? Her reputation? And her very career?


As Sam struggles with her dilemma, Ethan pursues her with all the romantic tactics in his arsenal. Will Sam’s theories succumb to his challenge? Or will Ethan lose the battle for Sam’s heart?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: Romancing Dr. Love (Sterling University) by Rebecca Heflin

Sam has the smarts but does she have the heart? Rebecca Heflin accomplished what many have tried. She had me in love at the blurb. It's not everyday that the romantic is the hero. No matter the hypothesis, love is the answer. Ethan believes in the emotion, For Sam it's all science. Can Ethan convince Sam to not let her brain cost her their happily ever after? Fell in love at hello and just couldn't let that feeling go. Romancing Dr. Love made me smile.

BLUSH FOR ME (FUSION) BY KRISTEN PROBY

 

 

Release Date:  March 7, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby continues to delight the senses with the latest novel in her delectable Fusion series.

As the take-charge wine bar manager of Seduction, Portland's hottest new restaurant, Katrina Meyers is the definition of no-nonsense, and she isn't afraid of anything. Well, almost anything: she hates to fly. When she's forced to travel on a death trap with wings, the turbulence from hell has her reaching for any safe haven—including the incredibly handsome guy sitting next to her.

Ryan "Mac" MacKenzie hasn't been able to get his sexy seatmate out of his head. The way she clung to him stirred something inside him he didn't think existed: tenderness. As the owner of a successful wine touring company, Mac thinks he's got a handle on what life can throw at him and he's not prepared for any surprises, especially in the feelings department. And when he brings a tour into Seduction, he sees the petite spitfire he just can't forget.

Mac is determined to discover what else they have in common besides fine wine and the inability to keep their hands off each other. But what will it take for two stubborn people to realize that what they have is so much more than a hot chemistry between the sheets and to admit to falling in love…?

Blush for Me (Fusion, #3)Blush for Me by Kristen Proby

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



ARC Review:  Blush For Me (Fusion) by Kristen Proby
 
Kristen Proby and her Fusion series bursts with flavor.  I keep coming back because the message is a powerful one and the characters are hard to ignore.
Fusion is built on sisterhood, friendship, equality and love.  The message:  "It's okay to be different, just be yourself."  We all need to hear that at one time or another and being true to oneself is the greatest piece of advice a person can receive.   Kat wears her self - confidence like a badge of honor.  She speaks her mind.  Goes after what she wants and is working on facing her fears.  When a test of fear comes back to bite her in the butt, her white knight is there in the next seat to hold her hand.  Mac is no hero, but he is tempted  to break his own rules.  Now he has to decide, if facing his biggest fear will net him his greatest reward.  Love with attitude.  Kristen Proby does it up right.

REVIEW:  TALK COWBOY TO ME (LUCKY COWBOYS) BY CAROLYN BROWN

 

Talk Cowboy to Me (Lucky Cowboys, #1)Talk Cowboy to Me by Carolyn Brown

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: Talk To Me (Lucky Cowboys) by Carolyn Brown

With requisite charm and the standard helping of tender loving care, both author and story set up residence within the heart and I didn't mind having to share. A newly single mother looking to start anew, discovered the perfect remedy to chase away her heartache blues. A newly minted guardian is looking to change his ways. If only he could get his heart to listen to what his mind is trying to say. Carolyn Brown took The Brady Bunch and placed it within the wild west, and although I'm a fan of whatever she does, Talk to Me placed above the rest. Ms. Brown has a sixth sense with matters of the heart. That special talent manages to set her apart. Loved it.

How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days (The Embraced, #1)How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by Kerrelyn Sparks

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days (The Embraced) by Kerrelyn Sparks

How to Tame A Beast in Seven Days is a twist on Beauty and The Beast that is even more beautiful than the original and far more magical than the Disney version. I volunteered to read a copy in exchange for my honest opinion and it was an eye opening experience. I am surprised how much I actually fell in love with this against the odds love story. Am not into the supernatural romance genre but Ms. Sparks latched on to something special with Luciana and Loefric. The characters, the author, the romance kept me spellbound to the point that I breezed through the story in one sitting and am looking forward to a second trip in this otherworldly awe filled tale.

Can't Fight This Feeling (Spikonos Brothers Book 2)Can't Fight This Feeling by Miranda Liasson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: Can't Fight This Feeling (Spikonos Brothers) by Miranda Liasson

Home. How can such a simple word play such an integral part in the way we view the world, others and even ourselves? Can't Fight This Feeling is the culmination of a bond between friends, brothers and family whether by blood or through love family and love.

With Can't Fight this Feeling, Ms. Liasson gives a glimpse into the world of money, power and privilege through the eyes of Drew Poulos, runaway groom. Wealthy does not necessarily mean happy. Now the golden boy has to decide, if his life of means is worth giving up the woman of his dreams.

The Billionaire Takes All (The Sinclairs #5)The Billionaire Takes All by J.S. Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: The Billionaire Takes All (The Sinclairs) by J.S. Scott

No the Sinclairs are not perfect. They've seen their share of betrayals, heartaches and disappointments, but when the tears fade, the dust clears and angry words and hurt feelings evaporate, they are still a family. Ms. Scott is adamant about that. That's what keeps me coming back. The Billionaire Takes All puts Julian in the spotlight. All the wealth in the world can not make up for his tragic past. Why does the man that seems to have it all, feel so lost and alone? There is a bright spot in his otherwise dark existence. Kristen. Her world is far from the fantasy and power of the nouveau rich. Determined to keep her eye on the prize and her head out of the clouds, she works hard. J.S. Scott gives her readers the best of both worlds. A little bit of the fairy tale with an abundance of emotion. I found it hard not to fall for a guy that doted on his dream girl the way that Julian did Kristin. Ms. Scott can deliver some of the most heart wrenching stories but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Love can conquer any obstacle. If given a chance.

Her Rebel Heart

 

 

HER REBEL HEART (THE OFFICERS' EX-WIVES CLUB) JAMIE FARRELL

 

 

 

Release Date:  March 7, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

The laugh-out-loud, heart-tugging standalone prequel romance in the bestselling Officers’ Ex-Wives Club series!

This sexy military pilot is about to meet his match in an unpredictable physics professor!

Kaci Boudreaux is every Southern mama’s nightmare, including her own. This former Miss Grits would rather tromp around in boots shooting off potato guns—and her mouth—than dress pretty and play nice with the boys. Especially her chauvinistic fellow professors, her ex-husband, and those military cargo pilots she accidentally started a war with.

Lance Wheeler is every Southern belle’s dream, except his ex-fiancé’s. After being left at the altar, he’d love to take his C-130 and fly far, far away. But since his bird technically belongs to Uncle Sam (as does he), a distraction in the form of a feisty fireball of a physics professor will do while he’s waiting for his next deployment with the Air Force.

He’s into her for the fun. She’s into him for the challenge. But when their secrets start slipping out, their hearts will be on the line. She needs roots. He wants to see the world. What will they do about needing each other?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: Her Rebel Heart (The Officers' Ex-Wives Club) by Jamie Farrell

Ms. Farrell's humorous delivery is enough to have readers in stitches. A tomboy physics professor with a no nonsense attitude and a care free playboy trying to mend his battered ego are a combo worth sinking your teeth into. When the brain and the brawn collide, it's enough to set off a fireworks show. Yet when hearts enter the equation, can they survive the repercussions? Her Rebel Heart gave me just what I wanted. A heroine as smart as she is tough. A hero who was not afraid to man up, when the going got rough and a cast of players that make irresistible into a fine work of art.

Crossing the Friend Zone (Belmont Beach Brides, #3)Crossing the Friend Zone by Kelly Eadon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: Crossing the Friend Zone (Belmont Beach Brides) by Kelly Eadon

Kelly Eadon is a new discovery for me, but I'm enjoying her work. The biggest lure for me is that she can lighten the mood just as quickly as she can break your heart. All while tempting your soul. Her stories are great way to sit back, relax and get away from the daily grind. Crossing the Friend Zone is a perfect expect novel. Short enough to flirt but just the right length to leave a reader craving more. Ryan and Ainsley blur the line between friendship and seduction in almost as short a time as it takes Ms. Eadon to capture the heart. Lock, stock and barrel. I'm an Eadonite for life.
