~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~

In this second of the sultry, Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily-ever-after—but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots?
Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.
The only place Tate Montgomery ever truly felt at home growing up was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his Gram and Paw’s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start—but if he’s being entirely honest, he’s not just back for the wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend-turned-young-love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past; but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty he did his best to forget for him to realize just how much he’s been missing…

~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. 😀

This is my first read from this author and I didn’t know what to expect, but if you are looking for some steamy hot sexy stuff, this book is not the one, so move along.For the steamy hot sexy stuff, you have to put your imagination to work… So just romance.

My initial review was different. I was harsher on it, but reading book 2 immediately, make me change my mind. The luck was that kept my review, and not posting it…So back to our book and review…

The book starts with Ava…a young college student who wants to be an architect. 

Imagini pentru megan fox

She works part time in one fine restaurant, she lives with her best friend and party with her. One day, before one of her exams, she decides to study in a coffee shop, but when she sees how her time flown, she runs out running right into one hell of a “Sex God”.
Obviously, the attraction between them was off the charts and more important… was mutual.

Rhett…is one of the sexiest eligible bachelor’s from Boston and New York.

Eric Belanger | NEXT Canada

He is one rich sexy guy, tall, well build, gorgeous with sexy and mischievous blue eyes. He knows what he wants, and what he wants is what he gets… No matter what. He wants and likes control, he craves control in every aspect of his life. But when he meets Ava, all his world and life turns upside down.


He’s a guy with a tormented past. She is a girl with trust and relationships issues. What is going to happen with and between them?

At the beginning of the book, I was like…

I didn’t like several aspects in the book. The book, or at least at the beginning of it, was full of boring details. Too many unimportant details about decoration and stuff related with architecture… In my opinion.
Rhett is a little too much insta “in love”. It doesn’t say it, but you as a reader see it, feel it. The action, the connection between them is too fast, too sudden. Too overall.

It would have been better if it was more concentrate on them, as a couple, how they build their relationship slowly. I love insta love, but this was way insta. Another moment that I didn’t like was their first moment as a couple. I not telling anything about this one, because I don’t want to ruin the joy for other readers.


What I love about the book…

❤
Rhett is a possessive, protective, dominant, control freak Son of a Beach. Ava defies him every moment, but of course, she doesn’t win, she just pisses him off more.
I’m not judging the book because is just romance. No… I love romance.

Towards the end of the book, the book got better.

The book got more concentrate on the characters. And especially that final part from Rhett’s POV. I loved Rhett’s sister and can’t wait to read her story.

Well, this second book got unexpectedly good and better from all points of view, in comparison with the first one. The writing got much better…In my opinion. It got more interesting, pleasant, suspenseful, funnier, much concentrate…

Even much hotter… 😛

.

I didn’t expect that but I loved it. I wanted more sexy action.Anyway back to the book and the review…The book continues the action from book one…but after 3 years.

Ava… moved to L.A

Imagini pentru megan fox

Works as an architect and lives alone. She isn’t happy but she gets herself busy in work to forget and not think of anything, especially to Rhett.

Rhett, on the other hand, had to spend this 3 years trying to correct all the mistakes.

Imagini pentru eric belanger

Removing all the evil and hoping that one day he and Ava will be together again. He still loves her and wants her with all his heart. He will not give up at her, at them. And now he has his perfect chance since his sister Valerie is moving to L.A for college.


What really happened 3 years ago? Was it Rhett so cold that he couldn’t be there for Ava when she most needed him? Will Ava forgive Rhett and give them another chance?

As I said at the beginning I liked this book way more than the first one.

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

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.

 season 6 halloween episode 8 buffy the vampire slayer vampire GIF

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…

jaydenkiss  GIF

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
