~Synopsis~

What’s better than one bad-boy boss? How about two?
In a duet of naughty novellas, a charity date auction turns into all-out war when a pair of powerful corporate lawyers each buy the other’s assistant for a weekend of seduction.
HIS PRICE
I’ve wanted Aria Finley from the moment I met her. We flirt, we laugh, we connect. It could be perfect. She’s even best friends with my assistant. Problem is, she works for my archnemesis—Jackson Keller—and she’s the kind of girl who stays loyal unless you give her a reason not to. Besides my hard-on there’s something hot between us, and I won’t rest until I put my finger on it. So when I get the chance to buy Aria for the weekend at a charity auction, there’s no limit. I’m going to take her home and take what I want because I’ll make her want it too. And by Monday, she’ll know she’s mine.

DIRTY MONEY
Liam Maxwell thinks he can get to me through my assistant, Aria. Well, two can play that game. Now Mallory Beckett—Liam’s assistant and Aria’s best friend—is mine for the weekend. Only she has no idea who bought her at the charity auction. This is going to be worth every penny. But soon I realize that Mallory has been waiting for my touch all along. What starts as a fling turns into something more. From the beginning, I was so focused on stealing her away. I never thought about the fact that I’d drown if I lost her. Now the game has changed. And she needs to know that she belongs to me.

This was some unexpected story, for me at least.This book it divided into two stories, completely different but at the same time completely the same. Since it’s my first read of this author, I didn’t know what to expect, but I was pleased…I don’t know if it was me, my mood, or the book itself…For me was just the right book at the right moment.

It is well known, that this author knows how to write some delicious asshole alpha males. Her series “Sinners of Saint” series is a perfect example. I loved that series! I am a big fan of redeemable assholes, so when I heard she was gonna write about a rockstar…I was all over it!!

Colton and Gia are from Until June. 
Colton Allyster is relieved to be back home. After a year of rehabilitation, losing his career as a Marine along with his fiancé, he’s had to learn quickly what’s really important. Colton grew up wanting to serve his country. Managing his parents’ biker bar was never part of his plan, but after meeting Gia Caro, he’s beginning to think that’s exactly where he’s meant to be. 
Ever since Gia Caro arrived in the small, sleepy town of Ruby Falls, Tennessee, her life has spiraled out of control. Between losing her grandmother a little more each day to dementia, and her hot boss’s constant attention, her once quiet existence isn’t so quiet anymore. 
After weeks of sidestepping Colton, things get out of hand, and before Gia knows what’s happening, she’s spending her nights in his bed and her mornings in his kitchen. And as he cleans out drawers and makes room in his closet, she starts to wonder if she’s falling too fast.

I have enjoyed all the books that I’ve read by this author, but I absolutely love the “Until” series, which also includes “Until Her” and “Until Him”.

Apparently, Colton and Gia were introduced in “Until June”, though I have to be honest here and say that I didn’t really remember this bit of info. All I cared about was getting to read a new Aurora Rose Reynolds book…So I can safely say…this book can be read as a stand-alone..but why to skip an awesome series?!

~Synopsis~

Just because Kate ‘Middleton’ McGrath, wants a man to call ‘daddy’ in bed doesn’t mean— 
Oh, you stopped reading. Cool. 
Kate gets it. Kinks aren’t for everyone. Hell, they’re probably not for Mr. Henderson, her grumpaholic boss. She really shouldn’t have crush on him, but the man is just so goddamn stern. Sure, a lot of that comes down to ‘being her boss,’ but still, it feels like there might be something there. 
Tyler Henderson is a golden boy who’s lost his shine. He’s old, his dream career is over, his fiancée’s left him. Now all the former firefighter is to try and bury his troubles in paperwork and hard liquor. He says ‘try’ because he can’t get Middleton out of his head long enough to wallow properly. He’s not going anywhere near the girl. HR issues aside, he’s done with sweetness and things don’t come sweeter than a cupcake-baking engineer who knits her own hats. 
A case of mistaken identity causes Kate and Ty’s attraction to give way to blistering sex. They have more in common—and more to lose—than either of them realized. When it comes to unreasonable attraction you can rarely change your mind but can you act your age?

Eve did it again. She’s an exceptional author. She has a unique style and an even unique and awesome imagination.

I’ve read all her books, and all of them are unique, funny, hot, very well written and with an amazing story and subjects. She does a wonderful job. Her characters are the best.

Imagine similară

She became one of my favorite authors. And every time I get a message from her I am so excited. I don’t need to read the blurb, or for her to ask…I just say yes. I know what she is capable of. I don’t have enough words of praise for her and I am very honored that she gives me this chance every time, to read her new book.

Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: 4 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

A hot and hilarious standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Samantha Towle… 

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. I wasn’t supposed to be boyfriendless, homeless, and jobless at twenty-eight. And I most definitely wasn’t supposed to hit Hollywood’s resident bad boy Gabriel Evans with my car and break his foot. 
Now, my guilt and homelessness have me living in his apartment, taking care of him, while he’s incapacitated. 
Living with the hottest guy in Hollywood, who I’ve had a crush on forever, doesn’t sound like a chore, right? 
Wrong. 
Gabriel Evans is a crude, rude asshole who drinks way too much and smokes like a chimney. 
The sooner I get a new place to live and when Gabriel’s foot is healed, I’m out of here. 
So, why do I keep forgetting to check the classifieds? And why do I keep getting flustered when I see him shirtless? 
Breaking Hollywood wasn’t part of the plan. But neither is falling in love with him. 
Loved Breaking Hollywood? Check out Samantha’s sexy, laugh-out-loud romance, Wardrobe Malfunction, out now!

I have read several books by this author and I really enjoyed them, especially the “The Storm” series.  

So when I read the blurb for this new book, I knew I had to read it. I am so glad I did because this story was very entertaining. It was funny, sweet and very sexy. Just what I needed at the moment.

Apparently, there is a book before this one, that I missed “Wardrobe Malfunction”. Both of the MC’s are introduced in that story.  If you haven’t read it, no worries because this book can be read as a standalone. I have no idea how I missed it myself, but I will go back to read it…that’s for sure. 😉

Ava is having a day from hell. Her boyfriend has recently dumped her, she has just lost her job and got an eviction notice from her apartment, because of her pet (an awesome pygmy goat). To top it all off, she runs over the over the foot of Hollywood’s famous bad boy Gabe Evans.

~Synopsis~

A new second chance romance standalone from USA Today bestselling author J.M. Darhower. 

He’s a troubled young actor, Hollywood’s newest heartthrob, struggling with fame as the star of the latest superhero franchise. Through scandal after scandal, addiction on top of addiction, a flurry of paparazzi hunt him as he fights to conquer his demons. 
She’s a single mother, assistant manager at a grocery store, existing in monotony with her five-year-old daughter. Every day when she goes to work, lurid tabloids surround her, the face of a notorious bad boy haunting her from their covers. 
A man and a woman, living vastly different lives, but that wasn’t always the case. Once, they were just a boy and a girl who bonded over comic books and fell in love unexpectedly. 
When Kennedy Garfield met Jonathan Cunningham back in high school, she knew he had all the makings of a tragic hero. With stars in his eyes, and her heart on her sleeve, the pair ran away together to follow their dreams. 
But dreams, sometimes, turn into nightmares. 
Now, years later, the only thing they share is a daughter—one who has no idea her father plays her favorite superhero. But Jonathan is desperate to make amends, and at the top of his list is the woman who gave up everything for him and the little girl he hasn’t yet met.

I am a huge sucker for “second chance” romances and this one was absolutely amazing.

It had some nice angs..but not too much and it was the perfect amount of sweet.  It made me laugh but it also made me cry…And anyone who knows me, also knows how much I love my redeemable assholes…and we a perfect one right here!!!

tumblr_lpio74ZoBx1qgrjt5o1_500.gif (500×200)

This story is told in both past and present time, though it’s not done in the usual way. The presence is told from both Kennedy and Jonathan’s pov. The past, however, is written by Kennedy in the form of a storybook. I loved that. It was so different and each time we got to a new part, I got excited.

~Synopsis~

“Trust me, I’ve wanted to punch you in the face a time or five.”

When the man you worshipped as a kid becomes your coach, it’s supposed to be the greatest thing in the world. Keywords: supposed to. 
It didn’t take a week for twenty-seven-year-old Sal Casillas to wonder what she’d seen in the international soccer icon—why she’d ever had his posters on her wall, or ever envisioned marrying him and having super-playing soccer babies. 

Sal had long ago gotten over the worst non-break-up in the history of imaginary relationships with a man that hadn’t known she’d existed. So she isn’t prepared for this version of Reiner Kulti who shows up to her team’s season: a quiet, reclusive, shadow of the explosive, passionate man he’d once been.
Nothing could have prepared her for the man she got to know. 
Or the murderous urges he brought out in her.
“Sal, please don’t make me visit you in jail. Orange isn’t your color.”
This was going to be the longest season of her life.

I can honestly say that this book has been the best I’ve read this year so far! It was absolutely awesome. 😍 

 photo post-26228-Up-Boy-WOW-gif-Imgur-xKwN_zpsrgbda7jt.gif

 It’s hard for me to explain why I loved it so much. Maybe it was the great writing style. It could also be, because of the amazing characters. I loved Sal and Kulti, but I also really Sal’s father and her friends. The character build was really good.One of the other reasons I loved this book is SOCCER. I am from the Netherlands, and we are all about soccer. It was really refreshing to me, to finally read a book about a sport that I know really well!!

tenor.gif (220×220)I wasn’t bored for a second and that is impressing…because this book is pretty long!

It also made me pee my pants laughing…damn the heroine, she was so freaking funny.😂She is definitely one of my all time favorite heroines. I absolutely adored Salome! I wanted to be her new best friend…I might have a huge girl crush going on.😝

~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.
