Rating: ✮4.5 Stars✮

~Synopsis~

From bestselling author, L.J. Shen comes a new standalone, enemies-to-lovers romance. 
Célian Laurent. Manhattan royalty. Notorious playboy. Heir to a media empire. …And my new boss. 
I could have impressed him, if not for last month’s unforgettable one-night stand. 
I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory–namely, his wallet. 
Now he’s staring me down like I’m the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I’m supposed to take it. But the thing about being Judith “Jude” Humphry is I have nothing to lose. 
Brooklyn girl. Infamously quirky. Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch. 
When he looks at me from across the room, I see the glint in his eyes, and that makes us rivals. He knows it. So do I. 
Every day in the newsroom is a battle. Every night in his bed, war. 
But it’s my heart at stake, and I fear I’ll be raising the white flag.

I am a big fan of this author writing style. The “Sinners of Saint” series is one of my favorites. She writes the best kind of heroes so I couldn’t wait to dive into this one and meet Célian !! And boy was I happy to meet him. 😉

To survive where I live, you have two options.

Or you can be crew.
You insult us? We hurt you.
You hurt us? We really hurt you.
And if you f*ck with us, we will end you.
My name is Bren.
I’m the only female in the Wolf Crew—the best, fiercest, and most dangerous crew there is—and we have a rule: There’s no falling in love.

I am not a big YA reader, but I definitely make an exception, when it comes to Tijan’s books. “Fallen Crest High” is one of my all time favorite YA series and re-reading them never gets old. I am deeply in love with Mason and Logan. 😉

Which is why I was a very happy camper, when I found out, we were getting a new high school series from Tijan!! Now I promised to keep my review spoiler-free, so I won’t be going too deep into the storyline. What I will say, is that I was very pleasantly surprised by this one, for more than one reason.

Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: ✮4 Stars✮

~Synopsis~

Can the best of enemies become the hottest of lovers? New York Times bestselling author Aurora Rose Reynolds proves that opposites can be compatible—and twice as combustible…
Libby Reed is over it. Or that’s what she tells herself. She’s lusted after one of New York’s bravest for years, but firefighter Antonio Moretti has doused her interest for the last time. As much as she wants the arrogant jerk (in a bad, bad way), they can’t even be in the same room without setting each other off…which might be a problem now that she’s volunteered to help out in his family’s restaurant.
Antonio’s been burned before. Now he knows better than to trust a pretty face and follow another pair of long, beautiful legs into heartbreak. But while Libby might rub him the wrong way, he can’t deny the heat between them. And it only burns hotter when she steps up in his time of need. The closer they get, the more he realizes he may have misjudged her. Then again, he doesn’t know the secret Libby’s keeping that could send their relationship up in flames before it’s even begun.

I am a big fan of this author, so I have read and enjoyed each book in the “Fluke My Life” series. I found, that for me, each book was a bit better than the previous one, which means that this one, was my favorite out of the three.

Unless I buckle first.

I was very excited to jump into this one, because I absolutely love this author, and I loved the first book in this series “Knotted”. Now, I am gonna be honest here, and say that I liked the first book a smidgen more, but that has to do with the fact, that it made me cry my eyes out within the first couple of pages. 😛

Rating: ✮4 Stars✮

~Synopsis~

A deliciously steamy enemies with benefits romance.
Declan McAvoy. Voted Biggest Flirt. Highest goal scorer in Kings of Rittenhouse Prep history. Everyone’s impressed, well except one person…
After a blow out in high school, Makenna Halstead and I were happy to never have to cross paths again. Except life has a way of knocking you straight in the teeth with a puck when you least expect it. She hasn’t just returned to my life, she crashed into it like a wrecking ball…into my college kingdom, into my class, and smack dab into the seat next to mine. My new lab partner to be exact. 
For years we hated each other… I may be King on the ice, but she is the Ice Queen. She has no problem calling me out, doesn’t back down, and her piercing blue eyes have me picturing more than just my arms wrapped around her. 
Now we’re stuck with each other and there’s no getting around that fact that we have to work together. My hockey career hangs in the balance. Problem? Oh, yeah.
I can’t deny it. I want her. More than I ever thought I could want a woman. I’ve got one semester–only four months–to convince her everything she thought about me was wrong. 
Will my queen let me prove to her I’m the King she can’t live without? 
Only one way to find out…

I gave them everything. After years of hard work and 
dedication, they gave me the boot instead of the promotion I deserved. 
To hell with them. I’d land on my feet. I was sure of it. 
The last place I ever expected to land, though, was in the
small town of Billingsley, Texas. A place I vowed never to 
return to after a disastrous one-night stand. 
Unfortunately, skipping your best friend’s wedding was not
an option. Neither was avoiding that one man who managed
to turn my world upside down in a single evening nearly a year ago.
I’d never been a runner. I’d never been one to hide. 
But sometimes, it’s necessary…

From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel, A Wish For Us.
A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.
Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.
Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.
When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.
Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.
Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.
But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.
A symphony of hope.
A symphony of love.
A symphony of them.

A wish for me, for you, for us.

I really love this author and I have read many of her books. The “Hades Hangmen” is one of my favorite series. This book is nothing like those books though. You see, one of the reasons I love her writing/books so much is because she doesn’t stick to just one type of genre. You never know what you are gonna get, but so far I have loved them all!!

An athlete. A scientist. A love story.

Her name is Adelaide and she’s a scientist with a brilliant and in-depth mind that analyzes and dissects everything.
Yep, she knows. She knows a lot of things.
What do I know?
I know I need to make her mine.
Note: THE FOREPLAY is a deliciously sexy, full-length novel packed with heat, humor, heart, and you guessed it… foreplay. It’s a sequel to THE SLAM, but it can also be read as a standalone.–

It has been 2 years since I have read  “The Slam”, and fell in love with Ender and Adelaide…(mostly Adelaide). No, I am kidding. Ender was pretty awesome, but Adelaide..she was the one that made the book, and I wanted to be her new best friend…I was hoping this book would be just as entertaining as the first one. Thankfully I was not disappointed. 😉

~Synopsis~

They’re serving up some red-hot revenge. A sizzling series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel van Dyken.

Blaire has never quite gotten over Jessie Beckett, the ex–NFL star whose kisses were hot enough to ignite the entire Eastern Seaboard. When he chose work over her, Blaire was left brokenhearted. Why else would she have married a skeezy two-timer, just to divorce him less than a year later? Now Blaire is getting even by becoming one half of Dirty Exes, a PI firm fully committed to humiliating cheating jerks. If only the new jerk she’s been hired to uncover wasn’t Jessie Beckett himself. Exposing Jessie isn’t going to be easy, especially when she still daydreams about his sexy smile. Further complicating matters is Colin, Jessie’s best friend. He’s gorgeous, a little bit cunning, and willing to help Blaire get the inside scoop on Jessie—for a price. Now caught between two men—one totally right and the other totally wrong—Blaire will need to decide just how much she’s willing to risk…and whom she’s willing to risk it for.

Apparently, this new series is a spin-off of the “Wingmen Inc.” series. Blaire, the heroine in this book is Ian’s (Matchmakers Playbook) sister. Now no worries, you don’t have to read the previous series to understand this book, it completely standalone. I myself haven’t, but since I really enjoyed this one, I will probably go back and fix that. 😛 Now, what I loved most about this book, is that it made me laugh. For me, this was really one of those feel good stories.

When half–wolf shifter Frankie Newman receives an e-mail from a family member she didn’t know existed, a secret is revealed: as a child, Frankie witnessed her father killing her mother…and then himself. Frankie was torn from her pack by her mother’s human relatives, and the trauma was erased from her memory. Realizing that she’s been lied to her entire life, she’s never felt more alone. Until she catches the scent of an old friend—warmly familiar and intoxicating.
Trick Hardy, alpha wolf of the Phoenix Pack, can sense the rush of mutual attraction when he sees Frankie again. He knows immediately that she’s his true mate. But he also knows that, given her fragile state, he needs to tread with care—no matter how fierce his surging desires.
As aroused as Frankie is by Trick’s darkly dominant air and simmering desire, her priority right now is her past—not her future, no matter how tempting. But as more secrets emerge and Frankie’s life is threatened, Trick must do everything he can to keep her close and safe. After all, it’s their destiny.

Now Rian and her sister are getting their life, and finances, back on track through real estate. Not only do they buy and sell houses to the rich and famous, but they finally have the capital to flip their very own beachfront property. But when she inadvertently catches the attention of a sexy stranger who snaps up every house from under her, all bets are off…
HE’S A FIXER UPPER
Pierce Whitfield doesn’t normally demo kitchens, install dry wall, or tear apart a beautiful woman’s dreams. He’s just a down-on-his-luck lawyer who needed a break from the city and agreed to help his brother work on a few homes in the Hamptons. When he first meets Rian, the attraction is undeniable. But when they start competing for the same pieces of prime real estate, the early sparks turn into full-blown fireworks. Can these passionate rivals turn up the heat on their budding romance — without burning down the house?

Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: ✮4.5 Stars✮

~Synopsis~

From New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg comes a new, sexy standalone about taking chances and finding love when it’s least expected. Or wanted.
This whole contest was supposed to be easy. I know, I know. Famous last words.
It’s a long story, but I messed up at work. Big time. To earn back the trust of my boss, I promised to save one of our magazines. Yep. That Hot Dad contest you’ve seen advertised all over the place was my idea. And if I’m successful, if I’m able to increase our online readership, then I get a shot at my dream job.
But the one thing I never expected to happen, happened: Contestant number ten, Grayson Malone. Hello, Mr. Difficult. And did I mention sexy as hell?
Unfortunately he knows me. The old me, anyway. And while we might be older now, I remind him of before. Of the woman who broke his heart, who hardened him, and who left him alone to raise the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen. 
But I don’t want a relationship. And I definitely don’t fall for single dads with baggage. Even ones with chiseled abs and killer smiles. 
But he got to me. They got to me. Him and his son and their messy, crazy life. But I got to him too. I see the stolen glances. I feel the walls he built start to crumble. I recognize that there’s an unexpected beauty to the chaos in his life. 
And now that the contest is about to end, we’re left to decide whether the last six months were just fun or if what we have is worth risking it all?
