Ben Miller met the love of his life the day he crossed paths with Elle James in their high school cafeteria. New to Beaumont, he took a chance when he approached her. Their first encounter was everything his mother ever read to him about fairy tales. He saw the girl who would be his forever.
 
From the moment Elle James met Ben Miller they’ve been best friends. Everything they did, they did it together, from late night study sessions, family vacations, throwing bottles off the water tower, going to prom and finally moving to California for college.

One fateful decision changes the scope of Ben and Elle’s relationship. For one, it means a new beginning. For the other, it means change.

Choice
Cheeky King - Nana Malone

This is book #2, in the Royals Undercover series.  This book should be read in order, as it may contain spoilers, and can confuse the reader.  I recommend reading this hot series in order.

 

Sebastian & Penny grew up together.  From the early days he was her protector.  Now, she is Royal Guard and is protecting him.  Their story continues in this book, where the heat sparks and flies and really just kind of sizzles when they are in the room together.  Is it hot in here?

 

Penny knows she can never have a future with Sebastian.  That does not stop her traitorous heart for wishing for one.  When he touches her.... well her body fairly combusts.

 

I loved this book.  Was so glad I read the complete works.  These characters are so easy to read.  They are meant to be together.  I would have only changed one thing  - I would have done bodily harm to the bad guys.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

The Marine's Seduction - Lori King

Bristol & Roan have been best friends since they were kids.  One night gets hot and steamy, and then they are closer than before.  With Roan getting deployed, they both have time to decide what they want by the time he gets home.

 

Roan has been in love with Bristol for so long.  He finally gets to show her how he feels.  When things get complicated, she tries to separate herself from him.  He wants to make the future happen, and show her just how he feels.

 

This was a sweet and touching story.  I am not giving spoilers, but this is a great read.  I love the characters care about each other and there is a solid friendship foundation there.  I also found the heat level was turned up and stayed there.  Always easy to love a man in uniform.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

About the Book:

 

Never Been Good
by Christi Barth

Series: Bad Boys Gone Good #2

Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Avon Impulse

Publication Date: April 3, 2018

 

 

 

 

Flynn Maguire isn’t really a bad guy. Sure, he worked for the mob, but he ran a legitimate business—on paper anyway—and it paid enough to keep his brother out of the lifestyle. Until they turned on him. Now he’s stuck in Witness Protection, tending bar in Nowheresville Oregon… and pissed the life he knew is gone.

 

The only bright spot? Fantasizing about his quiet, secretive, beautiful coworker.

 

Sierra Williams is a woman on the run. All she wants now is to settle into small town life… and ignore the brooding, sexy bartender who can’t seem to take his eyes off her. Flynn’s bad-boy vibe pushes all her buttons, but Sierra fell for the wrong man once already. She can’t afford to let her guard down again. Except Flynn’s tough exterior is slowly melting away to reveal the sweet man beneath and their attraction is too strong to resist.

 

Sierra and Flynn are falling fast, but they’re both keeping so many secrets. The truth could ruin everything… unless a girl who’s a little bad is perfect for a guy who’s never really been good.

Blog Tour w/Review - The Rules Of Rebellion

 

 

 

About The Rules of Rebellion:


1. Skinny dip (her idea)
2. Prank someone (his idea)
3. Stargaze (her idea)
4. Kiss someone (his idea)

 

Leo Zimmerman has had a crush on his curvy best friend Kylie Jenkins since forever, so When he discovers the girl with a flair for baking has a newfound plan to rebel against her overbearing parents, he’s determined to be the one to help her carry it out. Who better than a self-proclaimed rebel like himself to show her the ropes of letting loose?

 

Sure, taking her to her first high school party, helping her sneak out of the house, or watching a sunset together isn’t exactly a hardship, but much harder is masking his feelings the more time they spend together. And when he suggests adding “kiss a boy” to Kylie’s plan and she accepts…suddenly all his dreams seem to be coming true.

But Leo’s got a secret that could change everything between them, and it’s only a matter of time before it comes to the surface.

Her dimples popped into place, her smile so bright it about knocked me senseless. She bounced a bit on her tiptoes, and for one hopeful second I thought she’d maybe hug me. Unfortunately, she reined in her enthusiasm.


“That’s the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me,” she said. “I’ve got to run. My sister is probably pacing in front of my car by now. See you later.”


She scurried off, and I was disappointed the conversation had ended so quickly. I didn’t mind watching her walk away, though. I loved how the girl filled out a pair of jeans. She had more bounce in her step than most of the cheerleaders. Kylie was just plain…perky. She always seemed to be happy and smiling. I’d suspected Kylie was one of those rare people who was always fun to be around. Spending time with her these past few months had proven I wasn’t wrong.


She finally rounded the corner, slipping from my view. As I twisted back around, something crinkled beneath my foot. On the floor, directly where we’d been talking, was a pink slip of paper. It looked suspiciously similar to the one that had been sticking out of Kylie’s notebook earlier today.


I swiped it off the floor as I cast another glance down the hallway. It was too late to call after her. I’d have to give it back to her later. I reflexively glanced at the page, assuming it was a recipe, but wanting to be sure it wasn’t something important. Something she might need immediately.

 

Senior Checklist.

 

I glanced down the hallway again, confirming that she was out of sight and that she hadn’t realized she dropped the paper and was coming back. The hallway was clearing out, most of us anxious to get out of here at the end of the day.

 

With no sign of Kylie, I leaned against my locker and glanced at the sheet in my hand again. I was expecting to see items like Choose date and time for graduation party. Or Tour college campus.

 

I did not expect to see the items that were actually listed.

 

  • Senior Checklist
    Skinny dip (sort of)
    Sneak out (but don’t get caught)
    Prank someone (nothing destructive)
    Go to a party (no drinking)
    Kiss a boy (finally!)
    Watch a sunset (so romantic)

If I’d had any idea her list was going to be so private, I wouldn’t have read it. But once I’d seen it, I couldn’t exactly un-see it.


So I read it again.

 

 

 

 

The Rules of RebellionThe Rules of Rebellion by Amity Hope
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Leo has been in love with Kylie since they were younger. He is afraid to bring it up but knows he must do it soon. She has her eye on someone else and he could miss his chance.

Kylie is really put on the spot when her sister infers to her friend that they should go out. She is not sure what to do now. All she thinks about is Leo. Where to go from here?

This was an amazing story that I could not put down. I loved it all. The humor, the banter, the friendships.... it was just so good. I am new to this author, but you can bet I will be catching up.

This Time Around

by Stacey Lynn

A Love in the Heartland Novel

Release Date: April 10th, 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

 

ThisTimeAround-StaceyLynn-Amazon_1

 

Cooper Hawke was everything I didn’t need. Rich and famous, and a high-profile actor, he lived a life of luxury while my life had always been much more simple.

 

Yet when he showed up at my cattle ranch in Kansas, he gave me everything I didn’t think I wanted again.

 

His marriage was over and he was lost.

 

I was still barely surviving in my grief after my husband’s sudden death.

 

As hard as I tried to keep him out, he slipped past my defenses, and slowly, a connection grew between us I could no longer deny.

 

But this time around, we were on borrowed time. Because Cooper still had his real life waiting for him back in Hollywood.

“What are you doing here?” I wrapped the robe around my waist, tightened the knot.
Goddamn it! He wasn’t supposed to see this.

 

“Couldn’t sleep?”

 

That was what he asked. The urge to scream at him, to unleash holy terror for putting the idea into my head and making me feel, clawed at my throat. “No. Why are you in my room?”

 

“Because I couldn’t sleep on the couch thinking of you and then I started hearing all this racket like the ceiling was going to cave in on my head and thought I should come check on you.”

 

My brain must have malfunctioned. I must have skipped some words, rearranged them in the wrong order. He didn’t say what it sounded like.

 

“What?”

 

He pinned me with a look. It stole the breath from my lungs. “You heard me.”

 

Shit.

 

“Yeah, shit.”

 

I slammed my mouth closed. If words were slipping out, when I didn’t mean them to, it was best to be quiet.

 

“Come out of the closet, Rebecca.”

 

He held out his hand. I ignored it.

 

I couldn’t breathe or move or focus.

 

He was standing outside my closet, and he was naked.

 

Not naked, naked. Mostly naked. He’d taken off the pants and shirt I’d given him and all he had on was a pair of black boxer briefs.

 

Skin-tight boxer briefs.

 

That showed every outline of him. And there was a lot of him to see.

 

My eyes darted to the side of the closet I’d swiped clean. Tomorrow, I’d bleach my eyes to erase that visual.

 

“Rebecca.”

 

“I’m fine here.”

 

He laughed low and slow, beautiful and over too quickly. I was not moving.

 

“You don’t come out, I’m coming in there to get you.”

 

No way in hell was he touching me. Not dressed like that.

 

I stepped over the bucket of shoes at my feet and stepped into the room. He moved back, giving me space and crossed his arms over his chest.

 

It hid nothing. I couldn’t find a place to focus on.

 

I was losing my mind. It had to be sleep deprivation. I looked to my bed and ruffled covers which made me think of…

 

Nope. Not going there. I stared at the wall. It was cream and void of any decorations or photos. It was safe.

 

Finally, I breathed. He stood there, watching me, I felt it like I felt my skin crawling from his inspection.

 

“Want to talk about this?” he asked.

 

Nope. I didn’t. I didn’t want to say a single word to Cooper Hawke. The man in underwear in my bedroom.

 

I crossed my arms over my stomach. Uncrossed them. “No.” My hands went to my hair and I untangled my hair tie, shoving my hands back into my hair and re-fixing the messy knot. “I don’t want to talk about it.”

 

“I might be able to help, you know. It’s not like I haven’t stood in a closet, wanting to do the exact same thing you’ve just done.”

 

“You can’t help me.”

 

He stepped closer. I shuffled back. He moved again. I retreated. He was getting closer when he needed to move back.

 

“Cooper,” I said, “Please. I need to be alone.”

 

“I thought we were friends.”

 

“What?” My gaze jumped to him, fell. Tight, tanned skin and black boxer briefs. A trail of hair from his bellybutton that disappeared beneath those briefs burned into my retinas. I squeezed my eyes closed. A futile attempt to erase that pretty, pretty sight.

 

“I thought we were friends,” he repeated.

 

I forced my eyes open and choked out, “We are.”

 

His full lips quirked into a grin. I knew that look. He had it downstairs. I did not like that look. Not one little bit. “Friends help each other, don’t they?”

 

“Friends respect what the other person wants and needs.”

 

I scooted away from him again and bumped into the wall next to my closet.

 

He took one more step toward me. Slowly. Like he’d done downstairs, allowing me time to move away, allowing me time to see his intention. My head screamed to move out of the way while my body shouted stay right where you are.

 

My body sucked.

 

He was in front of me, not touching me. Far enough away where he was in no danger of touching me.

 

I still wanted him to touch me.

 

His hand raised and he settled it on the wall above my shoulder. And I could smell him.

 

“Cooper. Why are you here?”

 

He didn’t even blink. “Because I want to help you.”


“You can’t.”


“I can try.”

Winning has always come naturally for stud ice hockey defenseman Gus “the Bus” Persson. On the ice or off, he’s never had any trouble scoring, racking up goals—and girls. As the best player in his rookie class and the number-one draft pick of the Malibu Suns, he’s taking his game to the next level and is justifiably full of swagger. So why does one of the Suns’ ice girls treat him like he’s invisible?

 

Bo St. James doesn’t have time for rookie hotshots who think their gloves don’t stink. She knows them, she works with them, she trains them. It doesn’t matter that Gus Persson is the hottest newbie she’s ever seen. She knows his type. She’s got big plans of her own, and she’s not going to let some cocky rich kid athlete keep her from her goals.

 

But there’s a chemistry between them they cannot deny. A lust that burns so hot, it threatens to melt the very ice on which they make their livings. The game has changed for both of them. Together, can these two play to win?

 

 

 

 

 

Misadventures of a Rookie (Misadventures, #11)Misadventures of a Rookie by Toni Aleo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #11, in the Misadventures series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To enjoy this fun series, I recommend reading all of the books. The order is not necessary, as they are all individual stand alone stories.

Gus and Bo literally run into one another on the ice. From the very moment they meet the sparks start to sizzle until the heat begins to build. They are both attracted to one another and even with their differences it is obvious right from the start.

Bo is sick of athletes who think they are a gift from God. She is not pleased with how Gus comes across. The past may prevent her from being happy if she can't learn to see him as himself and not the jerk who hurt her.

Lots of heat! This story begins with the sparks and just gets hotter from there. As these characters get to know one another things smooth out a little. There are even a few surprises thrown in to make it a little more interesting. I thought it was a fun read and a great add to the series.

I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.

That is until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again.

 

Olivia’s attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History and Geology. Then one day she heard the term road scholar and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she “studies” anything and everything just for the joy of learning. She's also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she’s sometimes accused of being artistic.

PENNY CAPTIVATES HIM

Sold by her family to a group of criminals, Penelope Lopez finds herself lost into a world so dark, very few survive. She must find the strength within herself to endure her new life, but as it is once again tossed into the winds of fate, Penny decides enough is enough and vows to fight. Even if it means losing her life.

But fate has a different plan for her, one in the shape of an imposing man, who casts a shadow about her. A man who, at first sight, decides he can’t ignore the fire in her eyes and makes a vow of his own: To protect her at all costs…

Will Dizzy let her into his heart, allowing her to show him there is still good left in this world? Or will the danger swirling around them be a power even love can't overcome?
 

 
 

Lost in the Shadows Excerpt © Tracie Douglas 2018
I only need one reason to say yes, and even though I said no and told him it is a bad idea, the truth is, I wanted to scream "yes” the moment the words slipped from his lips.
As crazy as it sounds and is, this man, this stranger, unnerves and excites me all at the same time. I can’t picture my life without him in it.
“Because I’m not ready to let you go yet,” he murmurs, opening his eyes, letting me see the honesty staring back at me. I gasp at his declaration, and when he continues to talk, I lose my breath. “I will stand by you and protect you. I will give you a good life until all of this can be righted. I will be your friend. I’m not your happily ever after. I’m not the man who can give you the life you dream or the family you want. Our arrangement will be in name only, but I promise, Penny, you will not walk away from our arrangement with a broken heart. I will do everything in my power to protect it.”
I close my eyes and fill my burning lungs with air. His speech started off good, but if he believes I won’t be brokenhearted at the end of all of this, he can think again. I’m already invested, and I can’t seem to figure out when it happened. It’s hard to admit, but he’s already broken my heart a little with his words.
The one thing I can take from his reason is that neither of us is ready to let the other go.

HOT DADDY (Billionaire Bachelors #2)
By Lila Monroe
Releasing April 2nd – all platforms
Standalone

 

Welcome to the Billionaire Bachelors series, where the sexiest men in the city are about to meet their match…

 

Playboy CEO, Cal McAdams, lives life in the fast lane: hot women, hotter deals, and… a fake fiancee? I signed on to help reform his reckless image and win custody of his god-children, but I wasn’t expecting to come face-to-face (and mouth-to-mouth) with my wild Vegas hook-up from three years ago.

 

AKA, 6”3 of tanned muscle, sharp suits, and ‘undress me’ eyes.

AAKA, the best thigh-clenching, bed-shaking sex of my life.

AAAKA, the man who couldn’t be more off-limits if he had a uranium belt wrapped around his, um, assets.

 

I’ve never been one to break the rules, but Cal has me wanting to rip them up - and roll around naked on the scrap paper. But with just three weeks to turn this bachelor into a DILF, can we keep our crazy chemistry from derailing his plans? Or will gold-digging relatives, rambunctious pre-teens, and a little thing called love leave us both crashed out of the race?

 

Find out in the new sexy, hilarious romantic comedy from Lila Monroe!

EXCERPT:

 

CAL POV

 

I bring the rest of the dirty dishes over to the sink, and we work in companionable silence for a few minutes, Jules rinsing plates before handing them to me to set in the dishwasher.


See? Nothing sexy about dirty dishes.

 

“Great stacking, Cal,” she says, looking surprised.

 

“What, you think I don’t know how to load a dishwasher?” I make a face. “I’m not completely useless.”

 

“Well, no,” she allows, tilting her head to the side. “Not completely.”

 

“Oh, you think you’re funny,” I say, reaching over to dip my fingers in the suds before flicking them in her direction.

 

“I am,” she says, flicking me back. “And don’t start.”

 

“Start what?” I ask, reaching over and splashing more. But this time, the water hits her square on, soaking her T-shirt so the thin cotton goes translucent. Clinging to her curves, and the outline of her bra.

 

Okay, so apparently dirty dishes can get sexy, after all.

 

Jules clears her throat and grabs a hooded sweatshirt from the back of a chair and pulls it on—zipping all the way to her chin. “You good to finish in here?” she asks, looking flustered.

 

I nod. Down, boy. “You go put your feet up.”

 

“You don’t have to ask twice.”

 

Jules exits the kitchen, fast, and I sigh. Kissing her back at HQ was a massive mistake . . . which left me with a massive hard-on for the rest of the afternoon. I couldn’t help it. Something about Jules is dangerously kissable.

 

And lickable.

 

And definitely fuckable.

 

I scowl at the dishcloths. I’ve never had a problem keeping my hands to myself before, and if I wanted to get a workout, I have plenty of options. I may not be living the wild playboy lifestyle anymore, but that doesn’t mean I’m a monk.

 

But Jules is off limits.

 

Which is probably why I’m going crazy over here trying not to notice the way she bites her lower lip when she’s thinking . . . or how her jeans fit way too well.
And if I even let myself start to remember how she felt in Vegas, bucking against me, begging for more—

 

Fuck, I’m going to need a damn cold shower twice a day at this rate.

  

 

 

 

 

Hot Daddy (Billionaire Bachelors, #2)Hot Daddy by Lila Monroe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #2, in the Billionaire Bachelors series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. to avoid spoilers and to have better understanding of this series, I recommend reading this in order.

Cal and Jules have a secret and sexy history. When they come face to face again it shocks them both. It also ignites the passion they left behind.

Jules wants to help Cal. He is coming to mean a lot to her. Can she risk her heart and use her head at the same time? It could be the future will be worth it.

This sexy story started off with a little unexpected bit of flashbacks. I am not one to usually like them - do not hate on me it is just a personal opinion - and this book just blew me away. I loved the story, the sexy times, the humor, all of it. I found it a book with a story that I could not put down.

After Hours - Emjay Haze

Nick meets Alex when he comes in to the club where he is working.  He cannot help but feel the good looking guy seems sweet.  Then he finds out he is everything.

 

Alex has found himself living a good life without any happiness.  He has a lot to be grateful for, but not what he has always wanted.  When he meets a man who is following his own dreams, he second guesses where he is and where he is going.

 

This book was like a chapter out of a persons life.  I felt like I was watching it take place.  I loved the sexy times since they were full of heat.  The banter was cute, and the pace of the story was good.  These characters give us a good solid read.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
