~Synopsis~

Hot in Chicago series author Kate Meader returns with her all new, scorching Chicago Rebels hockey series, featuring her signature “steamy sex scenes, colorful characters, and riveting dialogue” (Romantic Times). Three estranged sisters inherit their late father’s failing hockey franchise and are forced to confront a man’s world, their family’s demons, and the battle-hardened ice warriors skating into their hearts.

Harper Chase has just become the most powerful woman in the NHL after the death of her father Clifford Chase, maverick owner of the Chicago Rebels. But the team is a hot mess—underfunded, overweight, and close to tapping out of the league. Hell-bent on turning the luckless franchise around, Harper won’t let anything stand in her way. Not her gender, not her sisters, and especially not a veteran player with an attitude problem, a chip on his shoulder, and a smoldering gaze designed to melt her ice-compacted defenses.

Veteran center Remy “Jinx” DuPre is on the downside of a career that’s seen him win big sponsorships, fans’ hearts, and more than a few notches on his stick. Only one goal has eluded him: the Stanley Cup. Sure, he’s been labeled as the unluckiest guy in the league, but with his recent streak of good play, he knows this is his year. So why the hell is he being shunted off to a failing hockey franchise run by a ball-buster in heels? And is she seriously expecting him to lead her band of misfit losers to a coveted spot in the playoffs?
He’d have a better chance of leading Harper on a merry skate to his bed…

I have read several of Kate Meader’s books, which I really enjoyed so I figured I would give this new series a try. I am glad to say that I am not disappointed. This could also be because it’s a book about hockey…and sports themed books are a weakness of mine…especially hockey and baseball. 😛

It’s hard to go wrong with HOT hockey players running around with their sticks. 😛

~Synopsis~

Hollywood hath no fury like a woman scorned. In this fun, flirty second-chance romance from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett, an aspiring starlet reconnects with her first love.

“Sawyer Bennett never fails to deliver heroes I fall hard for and heroines I adore.”—Violet Duke

Eden Goodnight went to Los Angeles to make it big, not to be publicly humiliated by her cheating fiancé at a red-carpet premiere. But when Eden returns to her hometown to put the scandal behind her, she can barely find a sympathetic shoulder to cry on. Turns out the locals are worse than the paparazzi, and they all think she’s turned into a spoiled brat. But in a strange twist of fate, the one person who seems to understand what Eden’s going through is Cooper Mayfield . . . the boy she left behind.

Small-town charm is no match for the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. At least that’s what Coop’s been telling himself all these years. As Eden’s old flame—and the landscaper for her family’s historic home—Coop feels some responsibility for getting her out of her funk. But as soon as he sees that million-dollar smile, he’s a goner. Soon they’re making out like teenagers again. But when a life-changing role falls into Eden’s lap, Coop just hopes she doesn’t give up on a love that’s meant to be.

I’ve read 2 other books by this author, but I wasn’t as impressed with them, as I was with this book. This book was flawless, smooth, funny, HOT, dirty, easy going…and I could go on and on. All in all a great story! I am very pleased and it gave off some good vibes. I was pleasantly surprised.

This book starts with Eden…a famous actress.

pιnтereѕт: ❀isabelgracea❀

She is a famous Hollywood star, who is engaged with Brad, who is a famous actor as well. They are on the red carpet at the premiere of Brad’s new movie, when Eden finds out from a reporter, that Brad was cheating on her with his co-star in the movie. She breaks up with him live, right then and there on the red carpet, in front of everyone and leaves. On the way home, she realizes the mistakes she has made.

She is in for another big surprise when she arrives back in her hometown to lick her wounds…What she finds in her very own house is something…or should I say someone…she never expected.

Coop…is an architect landscape.

Nice

He lives in Newberry, Georgia, his hometown and is Eden’s first love. They were together in high school and their first year in college. He didn’t want to leave his hometown, and he went back after he finished college. Coop is a sexy as hell single guy who doesn’t do relationships, only occasionally “benefits” dates. He is dominant, persistent, stubborn, hot, kinky, and he knows how to please a woman 😛

I believe that anyone who says sex is overrated just hasn’t done it properly. … Neil Gaiman

Now, after fourteen years, fate brings them back together.

Coop has moved into her house…well actually it’s their house. They try to stay away from each other, but it’s no good. The attraction between the two of them is just too powerful.

I think Eden was a great heroine, I loved how crazy she was. I liked her determination and her ambition, but I wasn’t a fan of her stubbornness. It was a good thing that she realized this herself at the end.

Coop’s character was amazing. I totally agreed with him. He knew Eden even better than she knew herself. I knew he couldn’t resist her, even if he wanted to. I liked his dark side and that he was very kinky. God how I loved that part. 😛

20645218.gif (437×245)

So as I said, I’m repeating myself again. I loved the book.

Read it yourself and find out why. 😀

~Review~Falling for Dante (A Clean Slate Novel, #2) by D.J. Hunnam~

 

35077087Title: Falling for Dante
Author: D.J. Hunnam
Series: A Clean Slate Novel #2
Page Count: 239 pages
Release Date: May 30, 2017
Genre(s): Contemporary Romance, Erotic
Reviewer: ~Mary~
Rating: 4.5 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

I fell for my brother’s best friend when I was just a kid. He broke my heart, one unforgettable night, in a frat house bathroom. Now he’s back and ready for another shot. There’s just one problem. I’m damaged goods.
I’m a demon…
On and off the football field. The only thing I like more than scoring touchdowns is scoring with the ladies. When my best friend’s little sister begs me to take her virginity, I’m not surprised. Erica has had a crush on me since she was an awkward kid. So I do what any man would. I reject her.
Fast forward five years and Erica has blossomed into one irresistible woman. Too bad she still hates my guts. Convincing her to give me another chance might be the hardest play I’ve ever had to execute. But I’m willing to give it the old college try.
I’m a fool…
For falling for Dante. He stole the playbook to my heart when I was just a kid and has been running defense with his ever since. I offered him everything. My heart. My soul. My body. His rejection propelled me into a world where my innocence was the price for admission.

Now I’m running scared. From my past. From my present. From the feelings that Dante stirs up every time he’s around. It’s only a matter of time before I trip and fall into the arms of the only man I’ve ever loved. But will the fall come at a premium my heart can afford?

I was beyond happy for receiving an ARC for this book. I’ve read the first book, Faking it with Damian, so I wanted so bad to know Dante’s and Erika story. I was also happy to see how the story of Damian and Janice continues, and meet them again.

This book was like a movie, a romantic comedy movie.

To be honest, I loved more Falling for Dante then Faking it with Damian. It was much funnier, entertaining, suspenseful, and way more HOTter. God…I still sigh.

KEEP CALM AND DATE A FOOTBALL  PLAYER   <3:


So back to the book and the review… 😀
Erika is Damian (from Faking it with Damian) baby sister.

Elçin Sangu - Turkish Actress:

 One day, Damian comes home from college with his best friend, Dante. Erika was 14 years old, but she fell instantly and over her head in love with Dante. She knew from that day on, that Dante was her fairytale prince.

Dante was Damian’s best friend(in Faking it with Damian)…

Men Cotton Hoodie Sport Gym Vest More:

…And although Damian came from a good rich family, Dante was a poor kid, from a disturbing family. All Dante had was his talent. To be a great football player. That was his future, football was his chance to a better life. When he met Erika…his whole world was turned upside down. She was only a kid. That couldn’t be possible. So they became best friends.

Years pass and Erika grows in a spectacular hot girl, but she was obviously off limits to him for various reasons. He was a lady’s man, he wasn’t good enough for her, she deserved way better than him, she was his best friend baby sister, but obviously…

Erika had another opinion and other plans.

L〰:

Erika moves on with her future and takes a decision that changes her life. Dante’s future takes an unexpected turn. But life and faith bring them together again. Are they now willing to give them and their love another chance?

SAH:


As I said, I loved the book.

I loved the awful thing (I know that sounds disturbing what I just said, I don’t love the subject in that way, I love the SUBJECT itself, because is reflecting the real life. Those awful things are really happening). I was expecting more action, more drama, and more suspense. But in comparison with Faking it with Damian, it was way better. For me at least.

So if you are looking to read something easy, sweet, funny, lovely and hot this book right here is the one for you.

Many thanks to the author Mrs. DJ Hunnam for this great opportunity. Thank you so much!imageedit_44_8150275859

~Synopsis~

Enter a world of immortal danger and desire—and discover an incredible fate borne of blood.
Tendra: One minute, I’m a bartender in gritty Mission City; the next, I’m whisked away by a vampire named Athan who tells me that I’m the lifeblood of his clan. It sounds unbelievable, but he’s got evidence I can’t deny. Turns out, Athan belongs to an underground society of vampires who feed only on humans with their consent. Their enemies have no such qualms, and they want me dead. The only thing standing in their way is strong, sexy Athan. And the closer we get, the more tempted I am to let Athan feed. . . .
Athan: How could I have known when I snatched this snarky, beautiful human off the streets that she would change my destiny? As a loyal soldier, I must deliver Tendra to our future king—my brother. Empowered with the blood of ten generations of the Gregorie breed, she is fated to rule as our queen. But there’s something between us that’s so intoxicating, so carnal, I can’t help wanting Tendra for myself . . . even if it’s treason.

I am a big sucker for vampires, so when I saw this baby on Netgalley, I knew I had to read it.

Tendra is a waitress, who one day after her shift, gets snatched off the street and kidnapped. She is thrown into a world, where all of a sudden vampires are real and she herself is supposed to be  “Sanguivita” ( meal ticket) for the clan’s king, because of her “special” blood.

Of course, Tendra was quite shocked at first, but evidence suggest, her kidnapper Athen, is not talking out of his ass. 😛 


Apparently, there are different kinds of vampires. Those that only feed with consent, and those that don’t give a damn about the human envolved. Those are the dangerous kind and they are now after Tendra…This is where Athen comes in.He is her Blood Guard and he is supposed to keep her safe and deliver her to the clan’s king… 

…Who is also his brother…

The two of them go on the run…but being chased by bad vampires isn’t the only problem they are facing…

There is also the little fact of them falling for each other.

tumblr_n9g3utflTy1ti3622o5_250.gif (245×150)


I really enjoyed reading this one and I think it was a promising start to a new series.

I also got a few laughs in, which is always a plus for me.  It was definitely inst-lovey, but for some reason, with PNR books, I don’t care so much.  I also really liked the MC’s. Kendra was pretty badass, though Athan was a bit softer than I expected him to be.

I am very curious about book 2.

An ARC was kindly provided to me via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

~Blurb~

Ginger Holtzman has fought for everything she’s ever had—the success of her tattoo shop, respect in the industry, her upcoming art show. Tough and independent, she has taking-no-crap down to an art form. Good thing too, since keeping her shop afloat, taking care of her friends, and scrambling to finish her paintings doesn’t leave time for anything else. Which … is for the best, because then she doesn’t notice how lonely she is. She’ll get through it all on her own, just like she always does.

Christopher Lucen opened a coffee and sandwich joint in South Philly because he wanted to be part of a community after years of running from place to place, searching for something he could never quite name. Now, he relishes the familiarity of knowing what his customers want, and giving it to them. But what he really wants now is love.

When they meet, Christopher is smitten, but Ginger … isn’t quite so sure. Christopher’s gorgeous, and kind, and their opposites-attract chemistry is off the charts. But hot sex is one thing—truly falling for someone? Terrifying. When her world starts to crumble around her, Ginger has to face the fact that this fight can only be won by being vulnerable—this fight, she can’t win on her own.

Small Change is the first book in a series that will include M/F and M/M romances.

Ginger is Daniel’s best friend from In the Middle of Somewhere and this book, kind of, runs parallel with that one.However, this is a standalone and the first book in a new series by Roan Parrish that will also include MM stories.

Ginger Holtzman is a tough independent woman.

She’s had to work hard to get where she is and she’s not about to relinquish her independence any time soon.The owner of a Tattoo shop and currently working on an upcoming art show,s he knows how hard it is for a woman in this industry.


Christopher Lucen is the owner of a coffee shop in the same area.

One of the good guys, He’s patient, caring, steady, and is always there for people…oh, and he’s just a bit hot!

Christopher is instantly smitten with Ginger…but is she ready to let someone into her life permanently? She’s very open about her sexuality…she’s bi sexual but has never really had any kind of long-term relationship before.

“What if, with Christopher, I could burn the world down when I needed to, and he could extinguish a spot for us in the center of it, carve out a safe place for us while the fire raged outside.”


What I loved about this book…Christopher (happy sigh )…I want one of my own.If ever there was a description of a perfect man, this is him, I absolutely loved him and he’s a huge factor in this book working for me.All he wants is to be loved…

“Christopher wants to be loved(…)And he wants to be needed.It’s what he’s always wanted(…)”

-A slow build up.Both characters are in their thirties and there’s no insta lust and falling into bed.The sex scenes are perfectly placed in the story.

-A secondary character….Faron.Hello, if ever I was intrigued by someone it’s most definitely him.

The story is told, primarily, from  Ginger’s pov but we do get an insight into Christopher’s thoughts by way of emails to his brother, Jude.

On that note, Jude is gay and I’m so excited to get his story and I’ve got high hopes for him and a certain character.

A bit of drama and angst towards the end and I definitely got annoyed with Ginger, but overall I really enjoyed this.

A recommended read!imageedit_5_3277993928

~Blurb~

 If anyone asks, that’s all that’s in your trunk. Definitely, don’t say anything about the dead guy you just found back there!

Jodi Morgan is having a bad weekend.

After partying a little too hard, she wakes up with a monster hangover and almost no recollection of the night before. So imagine her surprise when she looks in her trunk and instead of finding a spare tire, she finds the last guy she’d danced with before blacking out.

Who is he? How did he get in there? How did he die? And oh dear lord, did she kill him!?

When her older brother’s best friend offers to help, things start looking up. They’ve known each other since she was thirteen, and ten years later, he still treats her like a little kid – surely, committing felonies has to trigger some sort of spark. Together, they wind up going on an adventure that takes them all over Los Angeles. From raves to penthouses to strip clubs. All in the search for the answer to her question.

Who is the dead guy in my trunk!?

In case you didn’t read The Kane trilogy from this author, YOU MUST read it. Like every other author, Stylo Fantome has a unique style of writing. Humorous, funny as hell, intense action, exciting, suspenseful, mind blowing and of course…H O T.

Just a little Junk starts with…Jodi a.k.a Jo a.k.a Jojo

Maria on top:

Jodi is partying in a club with her friends and she is very drunk, and when I mean very, I’m saying unconscious drunk. She has a secret crush on her best friend, actually her brother best friend, who now that he left became her best friend. So…since she is drunk she hits on him and trays to make him jealous.

Archer a.k.a Archie

PMA - Ben Dahlhaus:

Archer is the sexy hot as hell best friend, the neighbor of Jodie. He swerved to Jo’s brother that will protect her, take care of her and never touch her. She was off limits to him. But Cupid made his way after all. He was head over heels for her since they were kids, teenagers, and he became in love with her.

So as a best friend…lover boy he had to take care of her right !?

 :


The next day when Jojo wakes up with the mother of all hangover’s, as this wasn’t just enough when she opens the trunk of her car, she wakes up for real when she sees a dead body in her trunk.

Now, this is all the fun and adventure starts. I’m telling you…this is when your heart, pulse, and breathing takes off. Like for real. Is all suspense, mystery, funny jokes, hotness and exciting.

I LOVED their relationship as friends, as lovers, as partners. To me,  were some moments when she was a total Dom. And I don’t mean it in a sexual way.

 :

No…he was all honey and sweets, not to upset her or to push her away.

But Archie was definitely the bad ass hero of the story. He was powerful, smart, determined. He knew what he wanted, tried in vain to stay away from Jojo, just to be her best friend because he thought he wasn’t good enough for her, that she deserved much better than him…but in the end….

So….if your heart is in good condition and if you want to read something suspenseful, exciting, funny and obviously HOT…

…This book is the one you need…imageedit_15_8758293539

~Blurb~

Ash Bennett’s had enough. She’s not wasting any more time longing for Prince Charming and getting stuck with Prince ‘Babe, What’s For Dinner?’
If she can’t find a respectable, self-sufficient man to start a family with she’ll just do it by herself. It’s better than pinning all your hopes on a guy who’s never going to make you happy. Take Dean Sherwood, sure he’s stupid hot but that doesn’t pay the bills or remember to pick you up from the airport. No, they’re just having a little fun until Ash can find a donor. Right?
If only it was that easy…
Everyone loves Dean. He’s easygoing, a great footballer and always up for a beer or sixteen. He also has the attention span of a Cocker Spaniel on MDMA, but that’s never been a problem where the opposite sex is concerned. At least it wasn’t until he met Ash. Beautiful, driven and wild in bed; she’s all he’s ever wanted in a wife.
Unfortunately, he’s far from what she wants in a husband, what with his perpetually empty bank account and inability to cook anything other than bacon. When she tells him he’s not baby-daddy material, Dean vows to become the man she needs, whatever it takes.
Open Hearts is the sequel to Locked Box. It features angst, bogans, hot sex, naked snowboarding and the triumphant return of Max and Julia who are dealing with a romantic dilemma of their own.

This is my third book read from this author. It’s the same style which I have become accustomed to, funny, hot and sexy. But my favorite one remains Taunt.

Open Hearts opens up with Ashley…

…Who is in conflict with herself because of her latest boyfriend, her sister and herself. Although Ashley and her sister Julie had a rough childhood, and she practically raised her sister, she managed to finish high school, get a job, a car, paid her school and get her a diploma and a properly job as a nurse, and take care of her sister. She lived her life a little too wild, with a lot’s of boyfriends and party’s, and now all she wants is peace, a baby and if is possible, a man. A man who wants to make a baby and if is possible to love her and for her to love him.


Dean a.k.a Red is a huge redhead.

Imagini pentru prince harry

A giant with an even giant heart. A very sexy redhead, as the author describes him. His only flaw is that he is thoughtless, irresponsible. He lived his life a little too wild too, but now he wants to settle down. Wife, kids, house all the family stuff.

When Dean and Ash meet, there is insta love. But only one of them recognizes and fights for the other one.

I loved Dean will all my heart, especially with his Dom/rough side. I loved him even with his dumbness side. How can you not love that sweet, kinky, kind, sexy, gorgeous, giant/big, guy??? He was ambitious, persistent, he fought for what he wanted the most, he changed his entire life for that.

my naughty thoughts:

I loved Ash too, but most of the book…man….

Imagini pentru GIF bitch wtf

I wanted to enter there, in the book, and slap that crazy bi… face. Wtf was wrong with her??? I was so angry with her…

The story was good, I like it. I loved how funny it was some time.

A great book from a great writer.

If you want to read something funny and hot, this book right here is the one.

I haven’t read any of the other books in this series, so I went in kind of blind. Thankfully I could follow the storyline just fine so this can be read as a stand-alone. Going in blind also meant I didn’t have any feelings about the MC’s before starting this book. So even though I know, from the reviews I have read about the other books, that Julian was an ass in the past…for me, he started with a clean slate. 😛

tumblr_m3ym8tKkqr1qaybgdo2_500.gif (500×160)

This is a second chance love story, which I am a huge fan of. 😉

Julian has betrayed Kendall in the past and he broke her heart. Kendall wasn’t in the best place of her life at that time either…she has bi-polar and was a bit messed up herself.

tumblr_mgxelpk6SV1rijbg1o1_500.gif (500×259)

I was a bit disappointed, that there was so little info about their pasts in this one. I would have liked to read more about their previous relationship and how Kendall felt struggling with her bipolar. This book really focuses on the present though.

Both of them are doing better now and Julian wants to right his mistakes, make amends and apologize to the woman he has wronged. 

Kendall isn’t so accepting at first though…

Slowly these two get to know each other all over again and grow closer.

There are some issues, with Kendall’s family not being happy with her relationship with Julian…Even though this book deal with some heavy subjects, such as mental illness and addiction, this book is mostly about becoming the person you were meant to be. Like I said before, there isn’t much about the actual addiction and the struggle with bi-polar because this book starts when both of the MC’s have overcome their struggles.

These two were great together, but they didn’t heal one another. They both came to a point in their lives, where they decided to get their act together…before they reunited. I really appreciated that. They didn’t need to be together, to function…but they wanted to be.

Still, I wished there would have been more information about the time they spend together in the past.

~Review~Fierce Obsessions (The Phoenix Pack #6) by Suzanne Wright~

Series: The Phoenix Pack #6
Publisher: Montlake Romance

~Blurb~

When raven shifter Riley Porter was given sanctuary by the Phoenix Pack, she let them believe she had left her flock. Reluctant to divulge the secrets of her past, she was still embraced as family. Only Tao Lukas, the protective and passionate Head Enforcer of the pack, was resistant to the enigmatic shifter. Until Riley started to arouse in him something other than suspicion.

Tao doesn’t trust lone shifters, especially ones so guarded—and tempting. But the sexual tension between them is making them both come undone, and vulnerable to more than desire. All Tao wants is for Riley to stay with him and to trust him with the truth of her past.

As Riley’s mysteries come to light, so does a danger that threatens not only her life but the safety of the entire pack. For Tao, keeping Riley safe means keeping her close—forever—as his mate.

As many knows, I don’t read a lot of MF books anymore, since I am very picky about them. I will always read a book written by Suzanne Wright though because she has always been one of my favorite MF authors. I have read almost all her books and I will continue to do so in the future.

What can I say…I am a huge fan!!!

I have known Tao since he was introduced in book 1 of the Phoenix series. I have always wanted to know more about the Head Enforcer of the Phoenix pack.

Riley, a raven shifter, has only recently (previous book) moved to the Phoenix pack. She was taken in by the pack because she came with two young shifter children, who were given sanctuary by the pack.

These didn’t start off on the right foot. Tao strongly distrusts strangers, especially lone shifters and he didn’t want Riley anywhere near his pack. That doesn’t mean he didn’t think she was hot though.

After Riley has spent some time with the pack, Tao slowly starts to trust her and even like her…he was already very attracted to her, so now…

he just needs to make a move…which is exactly what he does.

Riley loves nothing more than antagonizing Tao. It brings her and her raven much pleasure. She can’t deny being very attracted to the man though…So once the ice is broken and Tao suggests they take things a bit further, Riley figures…why the hell not. It’s not like it’s anything serious…

I really liked Riley. It is always very hard for me to like a heroine, which is why I am such a big fan of this series and the other ones written by this author. She writes about very strong females, who don’t take shit from anyone. Riley was funny and kickass.

“You better hope you are never on fire, Tao, because I’m more likely to relax and pull out some marshmallows than to help you.”

Everyone who has read Suzanne Wright’s books knows that they are extremely HOT. This one was no exception. I was, as usual, blushing my way through this one.

“I’ll fuck you in every way I can have you. And then I’ll do it again and again.”

There is a whole background story going on, about Riley’s former flock but I don’t want to spoiler the whole book. It’s best to read it for yourself. These books can be read as stand alone’s, though you wouldn’t know all the side characters (and there are plenty) so I would advise reading the whole series. 

You won’t be sorry! 😀

I myself hope there will be plenty more books in this series and all the others.

No one does shifters, vampires, and demons like Suzanne Wright does. 😛

An ARC was kindly given to me by the author, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

Well…for me, the book was AMAZING.

Amazing written, it has an amazing and unique story, adrenaline, suspense, joy, happiness, hate, intrigue, secrets, power, fight for power, life and freedom. After that ending in The Bandit…I couldn’t get fast enough my hands on this one. All my plans and my expectations were blown away, in a very good way.

This two books certainly entered in my favorite shelve.

I don’t know how to start and how to end, without revealing something important and good from the book.

Because everything in the book is a key to a secret or something.

I think it was engaging as the first one, very well written, hot but…the ending was a little confusing to me. The book starts right where the first one ended. This book had so many turns and twists. If in The Bandit I could anticipate something…in this book I was completely in the air. I couldn’t think, I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t put it down.You know that feeling when you definitely breathe the book?! This one is just like that. I didn’t need anything, I just needed this book.


Main, is so much powerful, mature and  stronger,

Hello, I'm Alexandria. I'm 17 and came here from sacramento, California. I'm very out going and like to have fun. I used to live in Maine. Selene and I have been best friends since birth. We're much alike she just doesn't show it.I love to read and write.:

More determined to win her freedom, to escape from Angel, and so much, very much stubborn. Sometimes, I wanted so much to punch her, to crack her head in two and shove there some brain or mind…

But Angel is so much more determined now than ever to win her back, to win her love, her trust and makes everything to win.

And I do mean EVERYTHING!
