Author: Haleigh Lovell
Series: Hemsworth Brothers #2
Genre(s): Romance
Release Date: June 6, 2018
Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: ✮4 Stars✮

~Synopsis~

An athlete. A scientist. A love story.
I’m addicted to her; she’s the real deal and every woman other than her would be a placebo.
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. 😉

A COMPLETE standalone and a Sinners of Saint spin-off.
Roman ‘Bane’ Protsenko 
Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud. 
Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living. 
Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled. 
Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently. 
Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies. 
Jesse Carter 
Hot as hell, cold as ice. 
I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap. 
She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time. 
She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad. 
More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack. 
Little does she know, I have the teeth for it.

It’s no secret that I am a fan of L.J. Shen’s work. This is the fourth book in the series, and no worries, it can be read as a standalone. I would advise reading the others though, I myself especially loved “Ruckus”,  and even though this book certainly rocked…he will always be my favorite I think. 😉 That said, this one comes in on a close second!! Bane and Jesse definitely had me on the edge of my seat. 😉

This is my second read from this author, and I must say I really like it. But my favorite remains the first book I read by this author, This Life I …This is a quick and short read, more erotic than romantic, but very very hot… and I’m a big fan of menage’ and daddy kink…The book tells the story of three people. They are all attracted to each other and although they try to fight that attraction they still fall in love.

~Synopsis~

Finnegan O’Shea 
The Sons of Munster have been living this life for generations. We have our own protocol, our own traditions, dating back to when two families merged and created our syndicate in Ireland. Now, we have our strongholds in Philly and Chicago, and the wrong man holds the highest position. The day my uncle decided to betray us, he signed his own death warrant, and after a five-year hitch in the can, I’m ready to take everything from him. In order to ensure the demise of his management, I have to get close to him. I need to earn his trust and that of his closest associates. I’ll be the top earner he wants me to be. I’ll be the very image of a conventional family man. 
For that to happen, this Irish bastard has to find himself a wife. Someone sweet and compliant who will stand by my side and make me look like I have too much to lose to screw over the head of the family. 
Emilia Porter 
When it rains, it pours, so I guess it’s been pouring for eighteen years now. Being from an old mining town that’s full of drunk cautionary tales, I spend my days juggling—and failing—school, work, and paying the bills so my dad can drink himself into a stupor. Then this freaking guy rolls into town in his expensive sports car and thinks I should marry him. This isn’t the fifties, and there isn’t a snowball’s chance in hell I’ll marry a well-known mobster. No matter how much money he promises me. No matter how intensely the chemistry sizzles between us. 
He asks for three years of marriage. Then I’d be set for life, independent and free to start fresh on my own. Free to walk away. Who the hell does he think he is?

I was very skeptical about this book because the cover looks too sweet for my kind of books I like to read…But I was so wrong…OMG, I loved everything about this book.

Finnegan or Finn is an Irish mobster. He is sexy as hell, rich and very faithful in his traditions and family. He wants to become the Head, the Boss like he was supposed to, after his grandfather retired, only his uncle had other plans. To gain trust from his uncle, he has to get married. So now he is in search of a wife.

If she could suspect that something wrong was happening to Stephan at the beginning of Season 5, why should not be capable of detecting Damon is somewhere around and could be rescued? Description from delenabacktoeachother.blogspot.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images

In the midst of supernatural chaos, worlds and hearts collide.
Celia: Having never known my parents, I’ve always felt like an orphan. All I want is a normal life. But after I’m attacked in my bedroom by one vampire—and rescued by another—it’s about time to give up on “normal” once and for all. Idris, the second in command of the Gregorie vampire clan, has come to my aid, but his motives for saving me are unclear. And what surprises me most is my attraction to his heated gaze. . . .
Idris: Terror. Curiosity. Arousal. These are the natural impulses of a human female, not the spawn of the ruthless Valarian king. Is it possible that Celia is unaware of her bloodline—and the power coursing through her veins? As the daughter of my archenemy, she was supposed to be my ransom. But how quickly the heat of desire changes everything. Now the family Celia has always craved is trying to kill her, and it’s up to me to save her again—when all I really want to do is make her mine.

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.
