When your life is a hot mess at twenty, it’s cute. At twenty-seven… well, not so much.35244824

It’s just that my lofty dreams—making it as a real estate agent, paying rent on time, showering daily—have stayed just that: dreams. Oh, and love? I’ve decided love might be a little ambitious for me at the moment. Instead, I’ve settled for the two guys who will never leave me: Ben & Jerry.

That is until Dr. Adam Foxe takes up residence as the town’s new vet.

With his strong jaw, easy confidence, and form-fitting scrubs, it’s not long before every housewife in Hamilton is dragging neglected tomcats in for weekly checkups.

Like everyone else, I’m intrigued. Even after I spoil my chance at a good first impression, he still offers me a proposition I can’t refuse: play his girlfriend at a family function and he’ll hire me as his real estate agent. Welcome to love in the 21st century.

It’s too bad I underestimated Adam’s irresistible charm and the undeniable attraction

 

that burns between us. The day he pins me to the wall and silences me with a kiss, the line between reality and ruse begins to blur. Every teasing touch brings me to my knees. Every kiss promises more.

It looks like my hot mess of a life is about to get a little hotter.

 

 

 

 

winter-calligraphy-regularLike all of her books I’ve read so far, this was entertaining and impossible to put down.

I absolutely love when you can fall into every book you read by an author. You know, you just know it’s going to make you fall💕 But first, let me say this, I wanted to hate Adam Foxe, badly.

I think I did hate or disalike him at times, a lot of times, but I totally understand why he was so hesitant, so reserved. His past. He’s unhappy and he’s had the worst betrayal happen to him. But hello, enter the entertainer of the year, Madeleine Thatcher. She could cure anyone’s broken heart

I really enjoyed this book because I am a sucker for a good contemporary read, especially if it’s a hate-to-love fake dating type of romance novel. And that’s what kept me hooked to this novel because R.S. Grey has a way with dialogue and creating hilarious scenarios that draw her characters together. The characters, as well, were so genuine and relatable from the start which drew me into the story, considering I could definitely relate to how clumsy Madeline is throughout her life. Oh! And my favorite character of all was Madeline’s adorable dog, Mouse, who stole the show for the entire book. I am in love with all things dogs, so having one included in the story stole my heart completely.

But over all, I had fun reading this story and would recommend it to those who are looking for a lighthearted contemporary read that has adorable puppies and a cute veterinarian in it as well. It’s an adorable and hilarious new adult read that I had a lot of fun diving into.

When I first applied for the job I thought it would be like all the others: working as a nanny for an aristocratic family.
Then I got the job and found out how wrong I was.

Now I’m the new nanny for two adorable little girls who happen to be princesses.

Their father is the widowed King of Denmark.
And my new home? The royal palace in Copenhagen.
Adjusting to my new life isn’t easy but the hardest part hasn’t been the girls who still grieve over the loss of their mother.

It’s their father.

Cold, mysterious and moody, with an icy stare that seems to penetrate your soul, King Aksel may have hired me to take care of his daughters but he wants as little to do with me as possible.

Yet the longer I share these palace walls with this man, the more that I’m drawn to him. His chiseled face and sexual swagger are only part of the package. It’s in the long, intense glances at the dinner table, the way we’ll brush up against each other in the halls, the rare glimpses of the man deep inside, like the sun passing through clouds.

But no matter how I feel about him, we can never be together.

You think it’s bad enough being in love with your boss?

Try falling in love with a king

winter-calligraphy-regularA Nordic King is an addictive,captivating,sweet,sexy and heartwarming story.

The relationship between Aksel and Aurora is unique.They didn’t start very well since Aksel was a little bit jerk in the beginning but you can understand why.Once they start spending time together they have a great relationship.Their romance has tension,intensity and some passionate moments.

42864460.jpgNever make a bet with a man who plays to win…

Especially not a man like handsome, arrogant Connor Pratt.

AKA the huge PITA who’s currently crashing in my spare room.

AKA my brother’s best friend since they were about six.

AKA the one guy who still makes me feel like an awkward tongue-tied loser.

But when Connor moved in, I got a glimpse of another side of him. Because, like me, Connor’s going through a nasty break-up. And, like me, he’s just doing whatever he can to get through it.

Unfortunately, his method involves drinking alarming amounts of whiskey and watching a lot of, um … movies … that make every inch of my skin flush.

I’m just trying to be helpful when I tell him that he should try my way: copious amounts of baked goods, sappy romantic comedies, and late nights spent whining with girlfriends.

But I should have known Connor would take that as a challenge.

Now, he says he’ll try my way of dealing with a break-up … but only if I agree to try his. Six months rent to the person whose method works best.

We call it the break-up bet. And I’m going to win. Except right now, it feels like there’s a whole lot more at stake than just rent money…

The Break-Up Bet is my first book from Cat Carmine. The blurb caught my eye and definitely sounded intriguing so I was excited to read this when it appeared on my kindle. This book made me laugh in spots, shake my head in others and smile. Overall, I enjoyed this title.

I have a weakness for books about crushes involving a sibling’s best friend; or a person falling for their best friend’s sibling. I don’t know what it is, but I just love reading it. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s usually people who have been a part of each other’s lives for a long time and just one of them finally looking at the other in a new light, but it’s one of my favorite tropes to read. I thought the Author did a good job utilizing it here.

I liked Lucy-most of the time. I loved her job, it’s one I find really cool in real life and I thought the Author displayed it accurately. She’s fun and sweet but she definitely has some trust issues. I think she grew throughout the book though and while there were moments I definitely was frustrated with her, I understood why she was acting the way she was.

Connor was exactly what I was expecting him to be. Sexy, smart and exactly what Lucy needed. I enjoyed getting to know him and watching him fall for Lucy.

These two definitely had chemistry, and I believed it. I believed in their progression from friends to lovers, and I definitely was cheering them on. Their sexy times were sexy, but their times outside of the bedroom were fun as well. I liked getting to watch them as their relationship progressed.

The plot here was fun, and I definitely did laugh. I thought the premise was unique and I enjoyed the Author’s spin on it. The secondary characters were fun There were a couple spots the book dragged a tiny bit to me, but overall it flowed well.

This was my first Cat Carmine book but I will definitely read her work again. This book was a fun read and I recommend it.

Irresistible (Cloverleigh Farms, #1)

I’m a full-time single dad to three daughters and CFO at Cloverleigh Farms. I don’t have time to fall in love—I’m too busy trying to run a business, keep the red socks out of the white laundry, and get the damn pillowcases on without owing a dollar to the swear jar.

Sure, Frannie Sawyer is beautiful and sweet, but she’s twenty-seven, the boss’s daughter, and my new part-time nanny—which means she’s completely off-limits. It’s bad enough I can’t stop fantasizing about her, what kind of jerk would I be if I acted on the impulse to kiss her?

(Exactly the kind of jerk you’re thinking.)

Actually, I’m worse than that—because I didn’t stop with a kiss, and now I can’t stay away. She makes me feel like myself again. She reminds me what it’s like to want something just for me. She’s everything I ever needed, but nothing I ever imagined.

I’m a former Marine. I should have had the strength to resist her from the start.

But I didn’t. And now I have to choose between the life I want and the life she deserves.

Even if it means giving her up.

Absolutely loved this one!!!! Mack & Frannie were so fun and so very easy to fall in love with!! incredibly entertaining sexy and sweet romance. For those of you who love romances with a single father, you are sure to enjoy Mack and Frannie’s story. I could not get enough of this book and I can’t wait to see what Melanie Harlow has in store for the remaining Sawyer sisters. When I end up loving both the Hero and Heroine equally I know that I’m reading an exceptionally good story. The author makes you fall for Mack and Frannie almost immediately. I felt a connection to them both and was waiting on pins and needles to get to their HEA! And I have to give honorable mention to Mack’s three little girls. They were the most adorable and precocious characters who added to the magic of this heartfelt romance! Great story. Terrific characters. Beautiful book cover! Bravo to Melanie Harlow!

“Oh my god. Who is that?”40792405
I get asked this question a lot.
“Oh him?” I reply. “That’s just Ian.”

Just Ian is the biggest understatement of the century.
Just the Mona Lisa. Just the Taj Mahal. Just Ian, with his boring ol’ washboard abs and dime-a-dozen dimpled smile.

Just Ian is… just my best friend

We’re extremely close, stuck so deep inside a Jim-and-Pam-style friendzone everyone at works assumes we’re a couple – that is until one day, word spreads through the teacher’s lounge that he’s single. Fair game. Suddenly, it’s open season on Ian.

He should be reveling in all the newfound attention, but to our mutual surprise, the only attention he seems to want is mine.

He’s turning our formerly innocent nightly chats into x-rated phone calls. Our playful banter sports a new, dangerous edge.

I want to assume he’s playing a prank on me, just pushing my buttons like always – but when Ian lifts me onto the desk in my classroom and slides his hands up my skirt, he doesn’t leave a lot of room for confusion.

I’m a little scared of things going south, of losing my best friend because I can’t keep my hands to myself. So, I’m just going to back away and not return this earth-shattering kiss – oh who am I kidding?!

Goodbye Ian, ol’ buddy, ol’ pal!

Helloooo mister not so nice guy.

 

winter-calligraphy-regular

Not So Nice Guy is a romantic comedy with the friends-to-lovers trope. It is filled with so many laugh out loud moments. I fell head over heels in love with Ian and Samantha’s story. These two were so perfect for each other but seemed utterly clueless to that fact. Waiting for them to finally get together was almost torturous.

I read this book in one sitting because I couldn’t put this book down and I was quickly engaged in this book because I love R.S Grey’s quick paced writing and was drawn into this story.

This charming, funny, fast-paced, friends-to-lovers romantic comedy should be read with your favorite cocktail in hand, devoured in a single sitting. It’s a weekend starter and a bad mood breaker… warm fuzzies and laughs guaranteed. I genuinely look forward to every R.S. Grey book, because I know it’s the most fun, the most delicious kind of escape

On the northeast side of town there is a house,

The house was only magical, filled with love and joy and plans for the future.
Inside it’s walls are many things that belong to me- my books, the china from my mother on my wedding day, the beautiful cage once home to two birds, now empty, just like me.
And a man.

A man who also belongs to me.

A man I no longer wish to keep.

A man who no doubt has not slept though the sun Is rising. because the house where he waits is where I laid my head to rest every night for eight years. Until last night,

No one who knows me would believe Charlie Pierce the quiet bookish girl who never made waves is pulling out of the driveway of a man who isn’t her husband. But they don’t know me at all. I don’t even know me.  Not anymore. They say there are two sides to every story and I suppse in most cases, that’s true. But the one I live inside of it has three. On the northeast side of town there is a house. 

but theres no longer a home.

What he doesn’t know is a full length romance novel and is the first book In the what he doesn’t know series. This is told in dual perspectives up until the end and then we get another persons perspective.

these two men are complete opposites one is the sun the other is the moon. One is like an open book the other is closed. one is the life of the party the other isn’t, one wears his heart on his sleeve, the others heart is dormant locked away.

the cover alone made me believe that the author would set me on a heartfelt emotional journey and that’s exactly what she delivered. this pulled on all my emotions as soon as I picked this up and started reading I was grabbed by the heart that feeling of devastation. This book gutted me and brought me to my knees and I felt all he feels. 

these are the kinds of books I run towards, books that make me feel, books that pull every kind of emotion out of me that are kept at bay unless an author can waken it wth her words that can make me feel things that on a daily basis I don’t necessirly would feel. And this book right here did that and more

What do ice cream and Sadie Montgomery have in common? They’re both ice cold, but one taste is never enough.

I wanted to be friends — I would have even settled for her seeing me as anything but a nerd — but there was no getting through. So just like any hard-headed, red-blooded man out there, I made up my mind.

I’d make my coworker fall for me.

I’d like to say it was simple, but like every other epic love story, all it took was one drunken night and a lot of naked courage to get the girl. For a moment, at least.

Love with a coworker is never simple, especially since Sadie’s trying to keep us on the low. Not to mention her persistent ex-boyfriend who won’t leave her alone. But I’ve never been good at giving up, and I don’t plan to start now.

The whole thing is a recipe for a rocky road, but I plan to eat the whole gallon, no matter how bad the brain freeze

 

winter-calligraphy-regularThis book was ADORABLE!!!!
Andrew, the computer geek/nerd with a dirty mind and mouth was absolutely ADORABLE!

This book is EVERYTHING – the whole package – an utter delight! Every single time I pick up a book by Meghan Quinn I know I am going to be blown away in some way. This is no different when it comes to Co-Wrecker! This book is a hilarious novel about two co-workers who, at first, have a silly love/hate relationship, but suddenly become more as they get to know each other (silly quirks and all). Laced with her trademark humor and swoon worthy characters, Meghan Quinn has written a winner! This is a must read novel for fans of romantic comedies, fans of the author’s work, and those who like their books to outrageously funny! Oh yea, and if you like ice cream and hot, nerdy boys too.

In addition to the humor of this book, it should be mentioned that the secondary characters and the feeling of friendship and love really emit through these pages. If I could have gone into this book (literally) I know that I would have wanted to be a part of Sadie and Smilly’s group. Friendships are one of the most important relationships anyone can have and this friendship is amazing! I just really love how real the author made it feel- you can really connect with them all-

Overall, this is a fantastic read – the type of book you will want to read in one sitting – and comes very highly recommended from me!

BRIAR
I was infatuated with Asher Kelley the moment he came tumbling through my brother’s window five years ago.
Even bruised and bloodied, he was the most beautiful boy I’d ever seen.
We couldn’t ever be together.
I was too young, and he was too untouchable.
He was too troubled, and I was too naive.
But the heart is rebellious, and mine decided it didn’t care about any of those things.
As I got older, harmless flirting turned to stolen moments in dark corners.
Until one day, he was gone without a trace.
Now, three years later, he’s back.
Callous and cruel.
He’s my brother’s best friend. My parents’ worst nightmare.
I should hate him.
But like a Bad Habit, I can’t quit him.

ASHER
I was drawn to Briar Vale from the first time she looked up at me with stars in her big, blue eyes.
She was just a kid, nothing but elbows and knees, but she was the most beautiful creature I’d ever seen.
We could never be together.
I was too old and she was too off limits.
She was too good and I was too fucked up.
Eventually, the temptation became too much to resist.
I risked everything for a kiss and she betrayed me.
Three years have passed and I’m forced to see her again, but now she’s all grown up.
She’s my best friend’s baby sister. My downfall.
I hate her for what she did.
But she’s always been my drug of choice

 

reviewblue.png

Bad Habit was a fun emotional sexy read and did I mention Amazing. This book had the ups and downs… All the Roller coaster of emotions that I needed from a book!

Asher? Holy batman! where can I find one like that for myself.  Asher is the epitome of a bad boy he knows he’s hot AF but isn’t cocky but he is broody aloof yet possessive and swoon worthy.

Briar? I love Briar she is so loyal! her love for Asher is unconditional. Some would say it’s to the point of being reckless and once you read this book you’ll watch to punch those people who say otherwise I loved the chemistry between Brair and Asher and I loved this book and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series

42351725The list of things I hate is short. Not even my soon-to-be ex-husband is on that list. Nope. I save only the worst of the worst, the crème de la crème, the absolute I cannot even for this list . . .

1. Black coffee
2. Rude people
3. Nathaniel Bradley

Which is why when my father informs me that he’s making Nathaniel Bradley his new business partner, and in turn, my boss, I flip out.

1. He’s an annoying know-it-all.
2. He calls me a spoiled princess every chance he gets.
3. He disapproves of everything I do.

I go into this knowing I’ll hate every second in his presence. Except the longer he’s around, the more I find myself staring at his lips and remembering the one time they were on mine. I randomly find myself looking at his hands and wondering how they’d feel on my skin.
I try to snap out of it, but I guess I’m not as smart as I thought I was. No matter how many times I remind myself of the times I’ve practically thrown myself at him and he’s pushed me away, I keep falling little by little.

I’d always heard that it was a bad idea to mix business with pleasure and if that’s the case, this thing with Nathaniel has demise written all over it

 

winter-calligraphy-regular

The Consequence of Falling is a sweet,steamy and emotional story.I was hooked and intrigued from the first pages.I liked the romance and the characters.The writing is flawless and the story fast paced!
I enjoyed Nathaniel and Presley .They have a great banter, they were funny,intense and flirty.From their very first meeting you can feel the tension between them!Presley most of the time was so funny but there were moments she was getting in my nerves but this was not entirely bad.Nathaniel intrigued me and I liked me.

Overall The Consequence of Falling is a heartwarming story with a swoon worthy hero and a romance which have it all!Sexy , angst and cute moments!

Two season tickets. 41224958
One genius idea.
Zero interest in a relationship.

The plan is simple: a brand new, hot, preferably funny, definitely single male will fill one of those seats for every Bears game at Soldier Field. And I’ll fill the other.

I can’t think of a better way to use the season passes I’d bought for my ex-husband. I am a woman of plans, and this one’s foolproof.

Until Zach Bowen offers to be my practice round.

He’s infuriating. Presumptuous and overbearing. And absolutely, undeniably gorgeous. Any woman with a heartbeat would be attracted to him, and mine picks up speed every time he speaks.

But as I said, I’m a woman of plans — and I’m not backing down on this one.

One night. One game. And then, his time’s up.

He can try to change the rules, but here’s the truth: he can’t win if he’s playing the wrong game.

reviewblue.png

This was a sexy sweet and hilariously intriguing story that had me captivated from the beginning to end. The  prologue drew me right in an the storyline kept me engaged and had me wanting much more devoring it chapter after chapter. There was so much to adore about this story and I loved everything about Gemma and Zach who were made for each other.

Zach was the perfect match for Gemma because he was able to pull her out of her comfort zone and get her to try new things, even when they scared her, which happened more times then not. Their chemistry was off the charts hot and their romance sizzled right off the pages. My heart felt the burn for sure!

Kandi’s writing is phenomenal and it amazes me the amount of creativity that she put into each and everyone of her stories.  this story made my heart soar and I was swooning from the moment Gemma and Zach first laid eyes on each other
