Hot Daddy - Lila Monroe

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.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Sizzle
The Last King - Katee Robert

Beckett and Samara have a hot history.  Full of fighting, tension, and sparks that fly around.  Why not have a night to give them their all?

 

Samara wants to not be attracted to her business rival.  His family is more than a mess.  It may take a trivial pursuit game to sort it all out.  Should she stifle her feelings or fan the flames of desire?

 

This was truly an unexpected read.  With each page, there seemed to be more surprises and twists.  While this author is an auto purchase for me, I never assume that a book will be as good as the hype.  This story for me, was actually way beyond my expectations.  The heat sizzled, the banter was sexy, and the book overall rocked!  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Do You Like My Wiener?: a non-expert's no-nonsense guide to dating by Brenda Rothert

 

Book Blurb:

 

With laugh-out-loud mishaps and heartfelt advice, bestselling romance author Brenda Rothert shows readers that while dating these days can be the worst, great men aren’t just fictional.

 

Ladies, we’ve all been there…a good first date is wrapping up and we’re sure a second date is likely after a great goodnight kiss beside our car. He’s tall, funny and charming. FINALLY a good one. He asks to get in the car, which seems natural since it’s cold outside. And then, once inside, another kiss, and he exposes himself and asks us if we like his wiener.

 

Wait, what? You haven’t been there?

 

Guess that one only happened to me. What about the guy who spends most of a first date complaining bitterly about his ex-wife? The one with the guy who cops to his criminal record over dessert?

 

Dating these days can leave a girl frustrated and disgusted. But fear not, I’m here to help. I’m a veteran dater, having spent a fair amount of time in the cheap-cologne scented trenches. And while I am admittedly not an expert, I can help you avoid my mistakes.

 

I’ll show you how to prepare yourself for dating, how to spot the red flags and how to laugh off the misadventures you will inevitably have. And hopefully, how to avoid an awkward wiener encounter of your own.

Release Day w/Review - Sparks Fly

 

 

★ LIVE and on KU! ★
 
Everly wasn’t excited over her impending meeting with the enigmatic Prince Sage. Being one of only four women from whom the Prince gets to choose in marriage was never something she valued. Her goal was to politely and elegantly remove herself from a forced wedding due to long standing traditions. Handsome Prince or not, she won’t marry for anything but love. 

Once Sage proceeds to the next candidate, Everly finally feels she can move forward with her life. On her own terms. That is, until she receives a mysterious request, asking her to solve a riddle, taking her on a night she’ll never forget.

A fervent adventure ensues, and attraction builds as the excitement of the night unfolds. Sparks fly in more ways than one just as she finds out who’s stealing her heart.

Sparks FlySparks Fly by Lauren Runow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Everly was not looking forward to meeting the Prince. Her family was one of four, who are raising children fit to marry royalty. This is a tradition she does not agree with.

Sage has been exhausted meeting the choices for a future wife. He knows his time has run out, he just really does not feel ready to settle down with a boring woman. What can he do but prepare himself?

What I loved right from the start was the perfect timing of sarcasm and humor. While there are plenty of actual sparks bouncing between the main characters, there is also an actual connection. This author is an automatic purchase for me. Her books and style make for great reads.

The Wicked Billionaire: A Billionaire SEAL Romance (The Tate Brothers) - Jackie Ashenden

This is book #2, in the Tate Brothers series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this amazing series in order.

 

Lucas wants to keep Grace safe.  If there is anyone who can do this, he can.  Since they already have a history of tragedy between them he feels it prudent to keep his distance from her emotionally.

 

Grace knows that Lucas the means and training to keep her safe physically.  What about her heart?  She has already known tragedy and loss.  Is it wise to find herself attracted to the same type of man again?

 

This book moves at a fast pace.  I like the growing tension and how it is laid out.  The characters clash and the temperature rises.  Makes for a sexy slow burn, but they belong together.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Squared Away (Out of Uniform #5) - Annabeth Albert

This is book #5, in the Out Of Uniform series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading these in order.

 

Mark is a SEAL and not much shakes him up, usually.  With tragic news, he rushes to home to find Isaiah has things in hand.  The very man he has been avoiding since his sister's wedding six years ago.  Now they must find a compromise for the future.

 

Isaiah has been doing just fine with the kids in his care.  Mark coming home is not going to change that.  With a little luck, and maybe a miracle, they can come together for the kids and make is better.

 

Sizzle and pop are what you hear when these men look at one another.  This great addition to an already stellar series, brings back some series favorites with cameos too.  I loved the very real feelings that were between the characters.  I also loved that the pace was not rushed.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

One Night with Hemsworth (One Night Series Book 1) - Eden Finley, Kelly Hartigan

Paige just wants one night with a hot man to escape her life.  Then she finds out how their lives are mixed up somehow and regrets it all.  If love is complicated why even try?

 

Cole has his life turning upside down.  His ex is getting married.  He wants to get along and still be able to see his son.  Will that still be the case when his one night stand answers the door?

 

This was a great start for the One Night series.  Lots of heat set up to high.  The banter makes it so much more sexy, and the characters we get introduced to are soon getting books of their own.  I liked that the story was pretty original and went at a good pace.  I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Yes, yes, I've heard the rumors. The prince is royal, and cocky and has a—well never mind about all that. The problem is, he's also my job. When the King called on me to retrieve the wayward prince, I was ready to walk away. Then I caught my boyfriend cheating—and suddenly leaving never felt like a better idea.

 

Sebastian…

 

I never wanted the throne. When I left behind my gilded cage of a palace, it all sounded so simple: find my long-lost brother & make him the prince so I don't have to rule the kingdom like my father expects. Then I meet my new neighbor, and quickly realize I’ve found the queen of my heart—and bed. Just one problem, I can’t let her find out who I really am.

Such a fun start to a great new series. I love the characters and the humor. Each page is a delight and I have a hard time putting it down. I cannot wait for the next installment in the Royals Undercover series.

About the Author:

 

USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

 

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list. Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and puppy in sunny San Diego. Want to hit me up?

On The Line (Milwaukee Dragons #1) - Liz Lincoln

Seth has a lot on his plate.  Moved to a new town (well, traded anyway,) has a daughter who is miserable, trying to get to know his new team, and needs a nanny.  All of this can make a man miserable.

 

Carrie needs a job.  If she doesn't find one soon it's going to get ugly.  Little does she know, the man who swoops in and makes everything better, is the man she needs space from.  How can she flirt with the sexy man when she finds out he's her new boss?

 

Heat right from the very start, and gets hotter as you read more.  This series just takes off in flames as the hot MC's spark and sizzle every time they are within touching distance of one another.  Despite very real conflict, and an original plot, this story is exciting and hot!  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Excerpt:

 

 

“Iris?” August’s frown, the concern on his face, in his voice, remind me where I am. “Baby, you okay?”


I blink down at him dumbly, swallowing my tears, eating my memories whole and digesting a nightmare from long ago. I nod, my lips a cold, wobbly curve.


“Kiss me,” he whispers, his eyes so tender, so intent.

 

I remember a magical night under the stars, under a streetlight on the eve of greatness. A night filled with laughter and confidences, pregnant with promise. And I see him so clearly, my prince, asking for a kiss.

 

And I do.

 

I kiss him like the world might end tonight because I’ll never take this for granted. Not his kindness, when I’ve known cruelty all too well. Not his tenderness, when I’ve been handled roughly in the past. Not his love, when I’ve been possessed and owned and mistreated.

 

He thaws me with his kiss, my prince, and I melt into him. We’re chest to chest, with August’s number crushed between us. I take his cock in my hand, aligning our bodies, and two become one in a carnal slide of flesh. I anchor myself by my elbows hooked around his neck, and we kiss until I’m dizzy and our breaths tangle in a cloud of bliss. Under the jersey, his palm spans my back, digging into the naked flesh as our hips lock and roll and grind. My body clenches around him, and we pray, we curse, we moan, we mate like our bodies were made for this moment.


Ours is a love that reimagines—that peels back the sky at high noon searching for the stars, collecting them like shells in a bucket. We bathe in stardust, drink from the Milky Way, and dance on the moon. We pierce the firmament, peer into infinity, and tread on time and space. There is no before. There is no after. Now gives birth to forever. This moment may die, but this love never will. Time is not a line. It’s a circle, and we, August and Iris, we stand at the center.


“A STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND READ THIS NOW kind of book. Don't hold your breath, this story will steal it from you."

- J. Sterling, New York Times Bestselling Author

Review Tour - Fast Burn

   

From New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster, comes FAST BURN —the fourth standalone novel in her Body Armor Series!

 

 

 For the men of the Body Armor agency, the only thing more dangerous than the job they do is the risk of losing their hearts. Don’t miss Brand and Sahara’s epic story. Grab your copy today!

 

   

 

FAST BURN Synopsis:

 

For the woman who’s his perfect match, he’s willing to break the rules…

 

The moment Brand Berry meets beautiful, driven Sahara Silver, the connection between them is electric. It’s also something he can’t pursue. Sahara wants him, sure—to join Body Armor, where his MMA skills, size, and cocky attitude make him perfect for her elite crew of bodyguards. For Sahara, the agency always comes first, and Brand needs more. Yet when she’s kidnapped by men searching for her missing brother, he doesn’t hesitate.

 

Somewhere along the way, flirting with Brand for the sake of business turned very personal. Despite his refusal to join Body Armor, it’s Brand who steps up when she needs him most. Now there’s no more time for games, and no point denying the hunger they both feel. They’ll escape together or not at all. But if they survive, can Sahara finally surrender control to claim this blazing passion?

Brand smoothed a tendril of thick, light brown hair that had escaped her pins. “You okay?”


That got her stepping quickly away. “Yes, of course.”

 

She brushed her palms against the tight material of her skirt over her thighs. “It was only a kiss.”

 

For some reason, it annoyed him that she downplayed the impact. “A kiss that had you crawling all over me, and you damn near yanked out my hair.”

 

Her eyes widened even more…and then she laughed. “We did get a little carried away.”

 

“A little,” he agreed, still nettled. Could she really be less affected than he was? Or was she hiding behind her usual cool persona?

 

“I’m fine.” She reached up to remove his sunglasses, then stroked her fingers through his hair. “But did I hurt you?"

 

Her touch ignited him all over again. Dangerous. He’d known that about her within minutes of their first introduction. Catching her wrists, he lowered her hands—but then couldn’t let go.

 

And she didn’t pull away. After a long look, she said, “We could…discuss this more tonight.”

 

Hell of a suggestion, but he’d damn near lost it in her office with Enoch just outside the door. If he had her alone, no way in hell would he be able to keep his hands off her. So he shook his head and explained, “I’m meeting the guys at a bar tonight.”

 

One slender brow arched up. “My guys?”

 

Did she think she owned them? “If you mean Leese, Justice and Miles, yeah, they’ll be there, but arriving at different times. I think Leese is between assignments, right? And both Miles and Justice should finish up for the day in time to join us.”

 

“Us?”

 

“A halfdozen other fighters, some of their wives. You’ve met most of them.”

 

She nodded. “Will you be going to that quaint little hometown place, Rowdy’s?”

 

Damn it, did she plan to crash the party? Actually, how the hell did she know about Rowdy’s? He thought about asking her, but decided he’d be better off getting out of there. “That’s the plan, yeah.”

 

She waited, but when he said nothing more, she briefly looked wounded before giving him a cool smile. “Have fun then.” She went back behind her desk and turned on the monitor to her PC in clear dismissal. “Do let me know if you change your mind.”

 

“I won’t.” But he didn’t like being dismissed. “My sunglasses?”

 

As if she forgot she held them, she looked at her hand in surprise. “Oh sorry.”

 

Nonchalant, she leaned forward, offering them to him without getting up, her attention still on the monitor.

 

Proving he had a perverse streak a mile wide, Brand let his fingers slowly graze hers as he took the glasses.

 

Her startled gaze flew to his face, but she only grinned, once again in full control.

 

“Wicked, that’s what you are.” She fluttered her fingers at him. “Thanks for stopping by.”

 

And she went back to staring at the screen.

 

Left with nothing else to do, Brand walked out. That meeting hadn’t gone as planned, but then nothing with Sahara ever did.

 

He knew he’d done the right thing.


So then why did it feel like he’d been kicked in the chest?

 

 

 

  

 

Fast Burn (Body Armor, #4)Fast Burn by Lori Foster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #4, in the Body Armor series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Sahara wants to hire Brand. She has made no secret in her pursuit. What she may have forgotten to tell herself, however, was how attracted to him she was. She never actually gets involved with those she works with. So how to work this out?

Brand has turned Sahara down repeatedly. Now, he has a plan that he thinks will work to get them together. Only he forgot to factor in the Sahara brand of bossy. She is a take charge woman - even when you do not work for her.

This book was such a joy to read. You feel the heat rising right off the bat in the very first chapter. This book truly lives up to its name as the story - and the romance - heats up at a quickening pace. True to the series, there is a story that will keep your heart pounding, (mine did) and take you to the very end with every spark.

Teaser Tuesday - Misadventures With A Rookie

 

 

They have chemistry that can melt ice...
 

Misadventures With A Rookie by Toni Aleo is coming soon on April 10th!

 

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?
 
 
Review
4 Stars
Finale
Twisted and Tied - Mary Calmes

This is book #4 in the Marshals series.  This book can be read as standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I do not recommend reading this series out of order.

 

Ian & Miro's story continues with them going on with their lives as a married couple who works together.  Ian has changed up pieces of his life in order to make Miro his priority.  With all that goes on, and there are many surprises in store for the reader, this is a bit of a juggle.

 

I am not one to give spoilers in my reviews, so I will summarize by saying if you are a true fan of this incredibly satisfying series, you will love this book.  The characters are fun to read with steady banter and humor.  There is always the ever present heat and sparks.  Just an all around good read with these characters inside.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
