Enter the Twin Estates’ resident bad boy, Landon Edenhoff. When he offers her an all expenses paid vacation, she’s immediately suspicious – he’s rarely nice and his intentions are never good. But she’s ready for a change of scenery and knows she can give as good as she gets from Mr. Rude & Nasty himself.
After all, how bad could this neighbor really be?

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.

Raised in secret by her mother, Sia grew up separated from her brother and distant father. No one knew she even existed.

First things first…Let me start out by saying, that this book is an M/F book. As far as I know, the first two books will be M/F. After that, there might be M/M, but I am not completely sure…I myself read both, and since Megan Erickson has become a favorite author of mine with her M/M books, I figured I would give this one shot too…Also, it’s about hackers and I think hackers are so freaking SEXY!!! For some reason codes really turns me on. 😀

He didn’t want to be bad. He just didn’t have a choice…

Shayla Perkins isn’t the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean “Stitch” Molina. So when he gives her the world’s biggest rejection, that’s it—she’s done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn’t mean he’s interested in her. Or does it?
Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he’s paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected—especially from a man like Sean. He’s tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.
Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give one another want they want most . . . is to let each other go?

This book can be read as a stand-alone though, so no worries if you haven’t read the other books in this series yet. I myself skipped book 1, but I will be correcting this mistake soon. 😛

Sometimes, one stubborn Capricorn is all it takes… to drive Wesley Hidaka to crazy, flirtatious lengths. 
Wesley loves annoying his RA Lloyd Reynolds. He just can’t help it. Lloyd is focused, decisive, grounded. He has this amusing ability to follow rules. Of course Wesley wants Lloyd to break one… or three hundred. 
Sometimes, one smirking Gemini is all it takes… to have Lloyd laying down the law and marching Wesley straight back to his dorm room. 
It doesn’t stop Wesley teasing again. And again. And again . . . But damn. Lloyd doesn’t crack easily. He’s full of principles. He’s unshakable. He’s the perfect friend to have when Wesley needs help. Like with his truant brother and his old high school principal. 
Sometimes, one little lie is all it takes…to find Wesley fake-engaged to his off-limits RA. 
What can he say? It seemed like a good idea at the time . . . 
“Gemini Keeps Capricorn” serves up a double shot of cluelessness, with a side of rock’n’roll and topped with a slow burn HEA. It can be read as a standalone.

This is the third book in this series, and so far I have loved every single one… this one included. 😉

One thing is for sure though. Anyta is the queen of slow burn, and when I say slow…I do mean sloooooow. 😀

Normally I am not a real big fan of the “extreme” slow burn, but for some reason, this never bothers me as much, when reading one of Anyta’s books. I still got frustrated at times though…Anyways, this book is about Wesley and Lloyd. They have known each other for some years and have become really close friends. Where Wesley is all about the fun and games, Lloyd is all about the rules.

I love a good “opposites attract” story! 😛

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Harper Sloan returns with a passionate and breathless romance about the sparks that ignite when a cautious cowboy and a once-scorned woman open up to each other in the third installment of the Coming Home series.
As the eldest Davis, Clayton has always tried to lead by example. He takes his job as head of the family businesses seriously, making sure the farm and auto shop are running smoothly—along with keeping an eye on his brother and sister. For him, there’s a time and place to let go of the control he holds with an iron grip. And with the way he grew up, coupled with disastrous end to his last relationship, he’s just fine with his quiet, solitary life.
Most of the time.

Caroline hasn’t lived an easy life, but after escaping an abusive ex, she’s finally living it for herself. The last thing she ever expected was a one-night stand with Clay Davis, a night she can’t stop thinking about.
So when she falls on hard times and Clay comes out of nowhere to her rescue, she realizes just how impossible it’ll be to stay away from him. Now all she has to do is convince him to live a little…
Will Clay be able to give up the reins and finally settle down? And, more importantly, will Caroline muster enough courage to lasso him up?

Rating: 3.5 Stars out of 5


Three estranged sisters struggle to sustain their late father’s failing hockey franchise in Kate Meader’s sizzling Chicago Rebels series. In this second entry, middle sister Isobel is at a crossroads in her personal and professional lives. But both are about to get a significant boost with the addition of a domineering Russian powerhouse to the Rebels….
Isobel Chase knows hockey. She played NCAA, won Olympic silver, and made it thirty-seven minutes into the new National Women’s Hockey League before an injury sidelined her dreams. Those who can’t, coach, and a position as a skating consultant to her late father’s hockey franchise, the Chicago Rebels, seems like a perfect fit. Until she’s assigned her first job: the man who skated into her heart as a teen and relieved her of her pesky virginity. These days, left-winger Vadim Petrov is known as the Czar of Pleasure, a magnet for puck bunnies and the tabloids alike. But back then… let’s just say his inability to sink the puck left Isobel frustratingly scoreless.
Vadim has a first name that means “ruler,” and it doesn’t stop at his birth certificate. He dominates on the ice, the practice rink, and in the backseat of a limo. But a knee injury has produced a bad year, and bad years in the NHL don’t go unrewarded. His penance? To be traded to a troubled team where his personal coach is Isobel Chase, the woman who drove him wild years ago when they were hormonal teens. But apparently the feeling was not entirely mutual.
That Vadim might have failed to give Isobel the pleasure that was her right is intolerable, and he plans to make it up to her—one bone-melting orgasm at a time. After all, no player can perfect his game without a helluva lot of practice…

Losing his adoring husband shattered Tristan Rogers’s world. For the past few years, he’s been going through the motions, running their dog grooming business while hiding the loneliness he feels down to his bones. When he witnesses an ugly breakup between a pretentious customer and his boyfriend, Tristan can’t help but intervene. Something about the unassuming younger man calls to him, and he can’t help wondering if he’s experienced some heartache of his own.

Life took a tragic turn for Jonas “West” Hollis as a teen, and he’s felt indebted to his overbearing lover ever since. Tristan’s kindness draws him from the start, but with his dreams finally in reach, West can’t risk getting close to someone else. Not now that he can live his life and stand on his own merit.

From innocent texts to companionable rides on Tristan’s boat, what starts as an unexpected friendship between the men sparks into undeniable attraction. Neither are ready for anything deeper than a couple of passionate nights wrapped in each other’s arms but their connection becomes too intense for either to ignore. If Tristan and West want to heal their broken hearts, they’ll need a considerable amount of trust and courage—not only in themselves but also each other.

I really enjoyed reading the first book in this series “Regret”, so I was very excited about this second installment.

After reading the blurb though, I got a bit worried, because this book contains a pet peeve of mine…a deceased spouse.

Thankfully, even though Tristan is still grieving his late husband…I didn’t feel that West had to fight some kind of perfect ghost…It is quite the emotional story though…

Tristan was introduced in the previous book (Brin’s boss at Doggy Styles), but no worries for those who haven’t read that one yet…this book can be read as a standalone…Tristan has been existing for the last three years. I say exciting because he hasn’t been fully living his life, ever since he lost his husband. He is still very much grieving.
