Sometimes, to get what you want in business or in love, you have to get your hands dirty. Luckily for Finn and Justin, dirty comes naturally.
Finn Drummond is the baby in a family of sharks—which means he’s worked twice as hard to make a name for himself. After learning the tricks of the trade from his brothers, Finn’s just as ruthless and dominant. Out in the field, his appetites are legendary: for success, for money, for women and men. But when supplies from Drummond Charities go missing, Finn has to partner up with the smoldering ex–Army grunt who’s always challenging his authority—or giving him mixed signals.
Justin Miller wanted his attraction to Finn to be mutual, but the cocky brat always had a girlfriend. Who could blame Justin for trying to move on? Despite their history, they’ve got to work together to figure out who’s been derailing their humanitarian work. But after Justin and Finn are thrown together against gunrunners and kidnappers, their simmering chemistry turns explosive. Turns out, Finn knows how to handle himself in a crisis—and in the sack. Justin only hopes that hot sex is enough to persuade this spoiled pretty boy to do the right thing.

When I read book 1 in this series, one person stood out for me and that was Finn, so I was really looking forward to reading his story. I was very excited jumping into this one but when I did…I got so confused…

I didn’t understand what was going on, and it felt like I was thrown into the middle of a story and missed the beginning…Maybe I should have read book 1 again before starting this one, but since it hasn’t been that long, I didn’t figure it necessary…my bad. So it took me some time to really get into this one…

The reason I rarely go home is three simple words: I’m a liar. 
When the pressure to marry my childhood sweetheart became too much, I told her I was gay and then fled to New York like my ass was on fire. 
Now, five years later and after a drunken encounter, I find myself invited to her wedding. And I have to bring my boyfriend—the boyfriend who doesn’t exist because I’m straight. 
At least, I think I am. Meeting the guy I’m bribing to be my boyfriend for the weekend makes me question everything about myself. 
When my sister asks me to pretend to be some straight guy’s boyfriend, my automatic response is to say no. It’s because of guys like him people don’t believe me when I tell them I’m gay. 
But Maddox has something I need. 
After an injury that cost me my baseball career, I’m trying to leave my playing days behind and focus on being the best sports agent I can be. Forty-eight hours with my sister’s best friend in exchange for a meeting with a possible client. I can do this. 
I just wish he wasn’t so hot. Or that he didn’t kiss like he means it. 
Wait … why is the straight guy kissing me?

This is a new to me author, and the blurb had me very curious…This story was pretty much the world upside down for me…


When Maddox felt like he couldn’t break up with his high school girlfriend, he told her he was gay just so he could escape her…and she wouldn’t be too broken-hearted.


Things pretty much blow up in his face though, when his ex-girlfriend informs the whole town of his gayness before he even gets home. This includes his parents, who are really supportive of him being gay.

Let me start out, by saying that this book can not be read as a standalone. It has a continuing storyline, so you should definitely start with book 1. Now if you really want to enjoy this series, you should start with the Addicted / Calloway Sisters series. You don’t have to...but the books are awesome, so why skip (unless you don’t read M/F, because yes they are M/F)

This is the fourth book in the Twin Estates series and it’s Landon and Tori’s story. This author has a unique style and I just love everything she writes.

Landon is Liam’s twin brother, and in the previous book, it was presented as real A-hole. He is a sex god, a sexy gorgeous manwhore, he drinks and smokes too much, he is like a parasite, living on his brothers couch ( although he is rich, he owns the other building in the twin estate ), he is a doctor, a cardiologist, and his biggest problem is the drugs.

Kelly Cannon is satisfied with his life. He has friends, a wonderful family, and a great job. But his love life has reached a new level of pitiful. Why? Well, his heart decided to break all the rules. Don’t fall in love with a straight guy. And definitely, don’t fall in love with your best friend.
NFL standout Britton “Blue” Montgomery has pressure coming at him from all sides. From his father, who’s only interested in Blue’s football career. From his coaches, who just want him to play without getting injured again. From the fans. From his agent. And from his mother, who has popped up on the radar after leaving his family years before. And now his relationship with Kelly is on shaky ground, and that frightens Blue more than anything.
When Kelly admits he’s in love with Blue, bonds are tested, and Blue has to decide what’s really important. He doesn’t want to lose the number-one person in his life, but the cost to keep Kelly close might be more than he’s willing to pay.
It’s a good thing his nickname is the Blueprint—it’s time to draft a new set of plans.

Blue and Kelly have been friends for a very long time. Blue is an NFL player and Kelly is a physics professor. Pretty awesome friend duo…” the nerd and the jock“. 😜

Office intrigue takes on a whole new meaning in this story of love, friendship, and the secrets hiding behind boardroom doors…
The Company has a rule about falling in love on the job.
I’ve never been one for rules. But I need this one. I need this rule to remind me why I can’t be with Dani Wallace.
I need this smart little foul-mouthed fighter by my side more than I need her in my bed. I need her to close this massive deal. She thinks it holds the key to her escape from cubicle hell and another shot at the life she always wanted. 
But there is more riding on our success than she can possibly ever know. So I’ll keep my hands to myself and my secrets safe for one more day.
But now I can’t stop wondering what my best friend has on beneath her conservative suit. I can’t stop imagining the things that sharp mouth of hers could do to me if I leaned back in my chair and unzipped my pants. And I can’t stop pushing our flirting too far.
I’m trying to remember the rule. But some rules are made to be broken.

This book was so much, it was awesome and so unexpected, for many reasons. I really like it and enjoyed reading it.

Dani is a shell, a shadow of the woman she once was. Once, she was a happy woman, she loved and she was loved, she created her job/company, (it was her baby), she had friends and she loved her life, only now…she hated everything.

Nina Dobrev, I love her she is perfect and flawless  she knows how to act,  playing like 3 different characters in different personalities in The Vampire Diaries. By the way, my favorite TV show.

Relationships are complex. Love ever-changing.
And when it comes to rules of the heart, they were made to be broken…
That’s what Robert Antonio Bianchi was telling himself, anyway.
Otherwise, he really had no excuse for what—or who—he’d done.
No excuse, except for his lonely heart, a pitcher of margaritas, four Bitter Bitches, and the apparent need to confess all his weaknesses to the two men he knew would bring him nothing but trouble.
But trouble was nothing new.
Just ask his crazy sisters or any of his friends, and they’d be the first to tell you:
If there was a bad decision to be made, Robbie always had a knack for making it.
And thus begins the story of the priest, the princess, and the prick.

When they were kids, Chris Mitcham rescued Theo from the neighborhood bullies and taught him how to “be cool.” Now, years later, Theo’s developed feelings for his best friend that arise at the most inopportune times. Theo hates lying to Chris, but in coming out, he might lose the one person who understands him best, a risk he’s not willing to take.
When a relationship with another young man goes south, Theo is forced to confront his own sexuality along with his growing attraction to Chris and his stunted, tenuous relationship with his father. Will Chris abandon Theo when he learns the truth, or will he stand by him in this tumultuous season of self-discovery?
In this quirky coming-of-age romance, Theo’s path to manhood is fraught with awkward firsts and a few haters, but also the unexpected comfort of a friend turned lover.

Absolutely loved it! One of the BEST friends to lovers stories I’ve read…I’m not a massive fan of YA stories but when they’re done well there is NOTHING better. This is so well written, conveying such strong emotions with two MCs that absolutely stole my heart. Theo and Chris have been best friends for years…16 years old, but, at times, showing so much maturity that their age didn’t really matter.

Being with Tavin is like eating those candies that start out sweet and then turn so sour, your eyes water. When she’s happy, her radiance is stunning, but her glow is dimmed by her dark secrets. I knew from the moment I laid eyes on her, sucking on that lollipop, that there was something unique about her. I was right in more ways than one, and while I don’t know the extent of suffering that her life entails, I’ll do whatever I need to, to convince her she can trust me. I just need to hang on to her long enough to do that. 
When he wraps his arms around me, and his warmth makes me feel safe, it’s easy to pretend that this is real. I knew going out with him was a bad idea, I just never imagined it would go this far. It was only supposed to be one night. One night to feel like a normal girl. I didn’t plan for this and now, every day that passes puts us deeper in danger. All I can do is make the most of every moment with him, so when the time comes for this to end, then at least we’ll be left with beautiful memories.
