BOSSY NIGHTS_4.jpg


Excerpt

“Where are we going?” She turns a curious eye toward me, tilting her head to the side. I glance over my shoulder as I guide her a few steps away and around a corner.

“Trust me?” She nods, and I point to the closed door in front of us.

“The cloakroom?” she asks with a teasing smile.

“Shush,” I whisper, twisting the handle to see if it’s locked. It moves in my hand. I’m in luck.

I open the door wide enough for us both to slide inside, then leave it cracked a few inches so a sliver of light streams in. Aside from a few empty hangers on a rod, the room is bare.

“What are we doing in here?” Tessa asks, but her eager eyes give her away. She wants me as much as I want her.

“I need something from you before we join the others.” I lean forward and speak into her ear.

“What’s that?” she breathes.

“This.” I place my hands on her back. She shivers at my touch, following with a sweet sigh. My fingers trail over her velvety skin, lingering at the simple hook connecting her lone strap. If only we had more time. “Your skin’s so smooth and silky.”

I bend down and kiss her lips, and she returns it with a passion matching mine. Tessa links her fingers behind my neck, and we are lost in each other. Minutes later, when we both need to draw in a breath, I move my lips down her neck and over the exposed curves of her breasts.

“I want to taste all of you,” I say against her skin, and feel her pulse racing like mine.

Dropping to my knee, I bring my hands to the back of her toned legs, and trace the delicate skin behind her knees. Her muscles flex and release in anticipation. With a feather like touch, I inch up her thighs, finding the lacy edge of her panties. “Has anyone touched you here?”

“No one,” she blows out between labored breaths. She gazes down at me with eyes full of desire, but there’s a tentativeness in them I can’t ignore. My touches, and the promise of more between us, are new and unchartered territory for her.

I rise to my full height, changing our position. Looking down at her, I wonder if this beautiful woman is ready for what I want to do to her and what we can be together. I have to ease her into things, build her confidence. It should be her decision to freely give into the passion and trust me. Let me make her mine. I won’t push her from the base of the mountain to the peak in one night.  

“I want to be the first. Are you okay with that?” I run my fingers over the curve of her shoulders.

“Yes, please,” she begs.


Review

This was a fairly entertaining read. The romance a bit fast for my normal liking but it didn’t hamper things too much.

I liked Tessa, she was sweet and innocent typical girl from the South, she was a little naive at times but mostly pretty sensible. Barclay was kind meh he didn’t really excite me, intact I thought he was a bit boring most of the time. I enjoyed the chemistry between the two if them though and I thought that he was really good to Tessa, he didn’t rush her into anything she didn’t want to do and he tried to be the good guy.

Overall this was a nice light romantic read.

My Rating 3/5 🌟🌟🌟

[Book Review] The Four Day Fling by Emma Hart

The Four Day Fling by Emma Hart

A standalone romantic comedy of epically awkward proportions, from New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart. 

Imagine this. You’re ready to leave after a one-night stand, and you’re figuring out how to—shock horror—leave your number and ask him to be your fake boyfriend for your sister’s wedding this weekend. When he wakes up. Well, that happened to me. And over coffee and omelets, I found myself a date. 

Which was how I ended up arriving at the wedding with a guy I knew nothing about. I didn’t know his last name, or how we met, or how long we’d been dating. I didn’t know where he grew up, what he’d majored in in college, or how many siblings he had. I sure as hell didn’t know he was Adam Winters, hotshot hockey player—and not only my father’s favorite player, but my little nephew’s freakin’ idol. Which means I’m in trouble. Big, big trouble. My mother is suspicious, my sister is bridezilla on crack, and my grandpa will tell anyone who’ll listen about his time in Amsterdam’s Red Light District. Four days. I have to keep this up for four days, and then Adam and I can return to our regular lives, where we don’t have sex whenever we’re alone and my family aren’t interrogating him over his intentions with me. 

At least, that’s the plan. And we all know what happens to those.

Review

*I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

This book had me chuckling from page one, its feel good, it’s funny and so entertaining. Poppy’s level of sass is of epic proportions, I loved her. 

Her family, on the other hand, particularly her mother is a complete nightmare and I completely understand why needs booze to get through her family gatherings.  

I loved Adam and her together, he just got her snark and threw it back at her, their banter is really what gave this book most of its humor and the ending just had all of the feels! It’s everything a rom-com should be. 

I don’t have anything negative to say because I thoroughly enjoyed this one, its the first book by Emma Hart that I have read so I’m really excited to check out more of her work!

[Book Review] The Accidentals by Sarina Bowen

Syn

Never ask a question unless you’re sure you want the truth.

I’ve been listening to my father sing for my whole life. I carry him in my pocket on my mp3 player. It’s just that we’ve never met face to face.

My mother would never tell me how I came to be, or why my rock star father and I have never met. I thought it was her only secret. I was wrong. 

When she dies, he finally appears. Suddenly I have a first class ticket into my father’s exclusive world. A world I don’t want any part of – not at this cost. 

Only three things keep me going: my a cappella singing group, a swoony blue-eyed boy named Jake, and the burning questions in my soul. There’s a secret shame that comes from being an unwanted child. It drags me down, and puts distance between me and the boy I love. 

My father is the only one alive who knows my history. I need the truth, even if it scares me.

Review

*I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

Where to begin…? Firstly, this story has all the ingredients you’d expect from a Y/A novel, angst by the bucket load, drama, romance and growing up. Rachel who is the protagonist has just lost her mother to cancer and is about to meet her rock father dad for the first time in her life, she has dreamt of this moment forever. She just never expected it to be under these circumstances.

There is lots of character growth in this book, both Rachel and Fredrick have to learn how to have each other in their lives for the first time ever. There is a lot of question’s that Rachel needs answers to but is too afraid to ask.

I really liked Rachel but I wish she had been a bit more assertive at times. Frederick was ok but I felt like he handled some things in a bit of a childish manner, sometimes it was hard to believe he was in his forties because his behavior was that of a teenager. The other supporting characters in this book are great apart from Haze who is Rachel’s best friend that she leaves behind in Florida, he gave off major jerk vibes from the get-go and he proved this on multiple occasions.

Overall this book gave me a lot of feels, it was a really emotive read and I’d highly recommend!

Review

*I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

I was so excited to get an ARC of this books, I’d been wanting to read since I heard of its existence. I’m going to try and review this with as few spoilers as possible. 

I do have mixed feelings though, I love the storyline I thought it was a great moral dilemma that Beth faced, her feelings towards Chase had to be difficult to process and I think she handled them in a great way for most of the story. Her parent’s behavior disturbed me, they were obviously struggling with their grief and weren’t dealing with it in the healthiest way. And then we have Jeff, I knew there was something sketchy about that bloke the second he was introduced, he just made my skin crawl. As for Chase, I liked his character but I wish we’d gotten his POV I think it would have added more depth to the story. 

The part of the story that has made my feelings mixed is the ending, while it was good I felt like it the resolution happened way too quick. It felt a bit like all was resolved a couple of pages and I think it would have been better to have explored it a bit more and maybe made the last chapter an epilogue. To me, it just ended a bit too quick. Having said that it didn’t hinder my enjoyment and I was satisfied without how it all turned out.

[Book Review + Excerpt!] Cowboy Most Wanted by Stina Lindenblatt

Syn

A sexy romantic comedy about a hot cowboy, some racy photos, and an accidental hook up—or three—with his best friend’s sister…

Sexy cowboy TJ Daniels loves Norse mythology, Marvel comics, horses, and dirty talk. Not necessarily in that order. When his brother signs him up for a new Bachelorette-Style reality show centered around a female star looking for love with a cowboy, TJ reluctantly agrees to do it, knowing that it will be great publicity for the ranch.

What he didn’t figure on is the show’s photographer being Violet Brooks. Violet is TJ’s gun-toting best friend’s little sister. She’s the same woman who left the small Montana town ten years ago and never looked back. And yep, she’s the same woman he lusted after when he shouldn’t have. And still does.

So when the pre-show marketing photo shoot involves channeling his inner underwear model—with Violet as the photographer—TJ ends up losing his shirt. His pants. And, if he’s willing to risk everything—including his place on the show that could save his struggling ranch—his heart could be on the line as well.

Characters: TJ, Violet


Review

*I recieved an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

This was one of those cutesy laid romances, I loved the Southern vibes and the scenery sounded amazing.  There is just something sexy about a cowboy protagonist – this book is told is entirely from TJ’s perspective which I thought was a nice change, you don’t find many romances written that way.

I thought TJ was very likable, he never really came across as a jerk and his feelings for Violet were pretty obvious. I liked the storyline of the forbidden romance, the sneaking around was very entertaining.

There were a few things that irritated me though, the whole reality TV thing was a bit blah, not really my thing and the Violet having a secret child was a bit strange – I’m still confused why this would be a big deal in this day and age…

Overall this was an ok read if you’re looking for a light and fluffy then give it a whirl.

CMW teasers kiss or what.jpg

My Rating: 3/5 🌟🌟🌟


Excerpt.png

I’ve never done drugs.

Okay, let me change that to, I’ve never done illegal drugs—the kinds of drugs that alter your perception of reality. I’ve never felt the need to.

But at this moment, my first thought is that God has rolled a massive joint and is blowing smoke in my face.

That’s the only explanation for why Violet is standing there, wearing cowboy boots and a lacy white dress that reveals mouthwatering long legs. Long legs that when I was a teen caused many a morning wood.

It’s all a delusion.

And since it is just a delusion, why shouldn’t I get to enjoy it some more?

I go back to checking out the view.

Violet’s shiny brown hair brushes against her bare shoulders. The hair I long to run my fingers through, to see if it feels as soft as it looks. The shoulders I crave to kiss, to lick, to taste.

Around her waist is the gift I gave her for her seventeenth birthday: a western leather belt with a horse’s head engraved on the buckle. In retrospect, the gift might not have been a good idea—if Austin’s comments back then were any indication. After he witnessed her innocently kissing my cheek, he pulled me aside and interrogated me. Interrogated me as to why I gave her the present. Interrogated me as to my intentions when it came to his sister—only he didn’t state it quite so nicely.

And then he made it clear what he would do to me if my thoughts about her were less than brotherly.

That was before he spent eight years in the military.

I’m sure he has since added to the list. Added newly acquired torture techniques. All with the Navy SEALs’ stamp of approval.

Let the fun times commence.

“This should be interesting,” Jake says, low enough so only I hear him. His tone is sitting on the fence. Cracking up is on one side, concern on the other. And right now, his tone is tottering more on the laughter side of things. “And by the way, you might want to close your mouth before it fills up with horseflies.”

I snap my mouth shut.

Guess that clarifies some stuff. I’m not suffering from a delusion.

I wished that Violet would return to Copper Creek and bam!My wish came true.

Except…I also prayed that the show would be canceled. So maybe my guardian angel or fairy godmother—or whatever the heck it is—is only a rookie. She could only finagle the first wish.

Oh, well.One out of two ain’t half-bad.

“What should be interesting?” I ask, unable to take my eyes off Violet, even though my brain is screeching, Mayday, mayday, maydayand demanding I look away.

“TJ,” Camilla says before Jake can reply. “This is Violet Brooks, our super talented photographer. Violet, this is our cowboy, TJ Daniels, and his brothers, Jake and Noah.” She points to each of them in turn.

That explains why Aubrey is here. She and Violet have been best friends as long as Austin and I have been the same. She knew Violet was part of the TV crew.

“We actually know each other,” Violet says. “TJ has been my brother’s best friend since we were kids.” Her gorgeous brown eyes, alive with flecks of amber, slide to me—and just like that, my knees have trouble remembering their function.

She smiles. Christ, how could I have forgotten what her smile does to me? Between that and those eyes, I’m surprised I remember how to speak.

Wait—I do remember how to speak, right?

“It’s great seeing you again.” Yes!I can still form a coherent sentence.

“You too.” She steps in for a hug and wraps her arms around my shoulders. Her breasts press against my chest, and I inwardly groan. Luckily, Austin isn’t here to witness this, or else the reality show would have some serious entertainment for its viewers.

My arms loop around her and threaten to never let go.

“I can’t believe how long it’s been since I last saw you,” she says so only I can hear her. Her arms remain around my neck. “I’ve missed you.”

“I’ve missed you, too. I was beginning to think the only way I’d ever see you again would be if I went to LA.”

The feel of her soft body against mine and the smell of her vanilla and rose perfume sparks a memory I’ve kept close all these years.

I had gone to her house to hang out with Austin. He was held up at his grandfather’s ranch, where he was working that summer. I was nineteen; Violet was seventeen.

She was dating a guy at the time. Some loser, if memory serves me correct. They were supposed to go out that night, but the dumbass forgot and stood her up for his buddies.

Violet was sitting on the porch steps, her shoulders slouched forward, her heart in her hand. I sat next to her, and she told me what happened.

“What’s wrong with me?” she whispered once she was finished.

My heart pinched at her words. How could she even believe for a second that something was wrong with her? Everything about her was right. The way she smelled like vanilla and roses. The way the world seemed a thousand times brighter whenever she smiled. The way she made mesmile even when I was having a crappy day.

But I couldn’t tell her any of this.

Not if I valued my life and my friendship with Austin.

So I did the second best thing: I hugged her.

It only lasted a few seconds, but the memory of it has clung to me all these years like well-chewed gum on the bottom of your boot.

I reluctantly release Violet, who goes on to hug Jake and Noah.

Camilla’s face lights up. “You must have some juicy stories about TJ growing up,” she says to Violet. “What was he like?”

Amusement flares briefly in Violet’s eyes. But it’s gone too quickly for Camilla to notice. I only recognize it because I’m more than familiar with those juicy stories. Stories my old teacher Miss Truby would be delighted to share—if she was still with us.

Although now that I think about it, Miss H isstill around. She was my high school English teacher.

Jake’s warning from earlier comes back for an encore.

Note to self: Make sure Camilla doesn’t track down Miss H. If my old teacher is given the chance to talk about my mischief-making days, I’m sure I’ll be painted as the villain on the TV show. While that would be a great way to avoid advancing to the next round, it won’t help us promote the ranch.

For a moment, Violet seems to consider Camilla’s question. “I’m assuming he hasn’t changed much since back then.” Her gaze sweeps over my body, much like Camilla’s did earlier. Except when her eyes land on my face, there’s a heat in them that wasn’t in Camilla’s.

But then it flickers away faster than a flame in a blizzard, and I can’t be a hundred percent certain I didn’t imagine it. I mean, we’re talking about Violet. I’ve never been anything but a big brother to her.

I brush the heat in her eyes off as nothing more than a hallucination—a hallucination brought on by seeing her again after she’s been away for so long.

Sounds like a reasonable explanation, right?

An angel. A virgin. My first love.

She was my life until she betrayed me ten years ago. So I built an empire and came after her, intent on vengeance.

Elizabeth might’ve cut me out of her life, but I haven’t cut her out of mine.

*I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this book. Dominic goes on a mission to find Elizabeth which leads him to a tropical Island and recusing Elizabeth from the clutches of her stalker. From that point forward the story went in a direction that I was not expecting which is where my mixed feelings come from. Don’t get me wrong I did enjoy the book but I was expecting a little bit more. 

As this book picks straight up from where the last one left off, there’s no real character development as such. Dominic is more understanding now that he knows the truth about what happened in the path and Elizabeth is able to relax in a way that she wasn’t able to in the first book. 

I did like the ending I thought it was a great way to finish off Elizabeth and Dominic’s Story.

[Book Review] I Flipping Love You – Helena Hunting

Synopsis

From New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting comes I Flipping Love You, a love story about flipping houses, taking risks, and landing that special someone who’s move-in ready.

Rian Sutter doesn’t usually get hit on in the grocery store, but when she notices a sexy man in a suit checking her out, she thinks maybe it’s her lucky day. Either that or the suit has a thing for sweaty, yoga-pant wearing women with excellent price matching skills.

Turns out it’s neither.

Pierce Whitfield can’t believe his luck when he’s able to track down the woman who scratched up the paint job on his car at the scene of the crime. But when he confronts the hit and run hottie, he discovers there’s not just one, but two of them, and he’s been throwing accusations at the wrong twin.

As repair costs are negotiated, and the chemistry between them flares, Rian and Pierce find out they have more than mutual attraction in common. They’re both vying for the same pieces of prime real estate in The Hamptons and neither one plans to give up without a fight.

Can these passionate rivals turn up the heat on their budding romance—without burning down the house?

Review

*I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

This book is set in the same world as Hooking up and Shacking up, Pierce is Amalie’s brother so if you have read Hooking Up you would have met his character briefly there.

I flipping love this story! Just like the first 2 books this story it’s filled with lots of laugh out loud moments and lots and lots of sexy times, it’s everything I have come to expect from Helena Hunting. Rian and her sister Marley flip house’s for a living, in the hopes of one day making enough cash to buy their own home on the beach but then Pierce happens, bringing a competition that they had not planned for. What also doesn’t help is the undeniable attraction between him and Rian….. This quiet little beach town just got more interesting.

Firstly,  The Hamptons sounds freaking amazing, it really made me want to visit!  I really liked Rian, she is feisty, headstrong and very endearing. The chemistry between her and Pierce is sizzling from the get-go. I loved how they met – arguing over who scratched his car in the middle of a supermarket! It was just hilarious. Talking of Pierce is was great too, I liked how he was all in with Rian and didn’t run when she told him all about her past, also he is very swoony!

Another character I have to mention here is Marley, she is Rian’s twin sister. Marley is more of a party girl than Rian but she seems like so much fun! I know there are going to be a few more books set in this world and I really hope one of them is Marley’s story.

Overall this was soo so good! If you are going on vacation soon this is a perfect some summer read, in fact just grab a copy anyway, you will not be disappointed.

[Book Review] Boarded by Love – Toni Aleo

Synopsis

“Jude Sinclair here, hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies and lover of all ladies. Hockey’s in my blood, and not to sound full of myself, but

I’m good at it…really good. The draft is within my reach—it’s mine to take—but that’s not the only reason people know my name. They know me because of my way with women. They know the score, and I aim to please. I just tend to stay away from repeat performances. In other words, I don’t do relationships beyond my family and friends. I’m happy with life. However, I should warn you that my story and how I see it playing out is about to change due to a certain redhead on campus.

She’s beautiful. Stunning. Breathtaking.

She’s my game changer.”

“He’s trouble from the moment I see him. I don’t know what I’m thinking, but from the moment I meet his gaze, I’m his. It’s a scary feeling.

I’ve never trusted anyone outside my aunt and uncle—and even that took months. I didn’t have it easy growing up. My mom was usually strung out, and she didn’t give me a second thought. Drugs and the men who paid her were more important to her. It was horrible, but I’m stronger today. Because of my past, security is what I need most. Money assures me that I can take care of myself today, tomorrow, and next month. I don’t want to ever be hungry or go without again, so I work hard for every penny.

Oh, by the way, I’m Claire Anderson. I’m a hard-studying sophomore at the University of Bellevue, dancer for the school dance team, and a burlesque dancer at a club, but that’s my secret.
You may think you know how our story ends, but you have no clue. It’s not easy falling in love… or living happily ever after. At first it may seem so, but when is anything worth having ever won without a fight?

Especially when you’re boarded by love.”

Review

In general I like Hockey themed storys but this one almost broke my eyes from the amoutn of eye rolling that went down whilest I was reading this book.

Claire is whiney and irritating! I felt no connection to her, she keeps secres from the people she loves for reasons that make little or no senese. Jude was ok but kind meh, no real personality and he was pretty boring to be honest,. The worst thing about this book thought was the major major insta love! I loves you were being thrown around after only 2 weeks of them meeting. I probably should have stopped reading at that point but I I held out hope that things my get better –  they did not.

I never thought a romance book could have too much romance but this book did it, mainly due to the utter repetiveness, there’s only so much you read about much people love it each before you it becomes ewww. I get they love it each other I don’t need to be kept remineded about that fact. I started skim reading towards the end because it became so unbareable.

I probably will try another book by Toni Aleo just incase this was a blip but I really wish I’d DNF’d this book.

Review

acofas q

This book yall! I have very mixed feelings… for the most part, I loved it but there were a few things that really irked me. Firstly let’s look at the good:

  1. Rhys’s POV – For the first time we got a good few chapters from the Highlord of the Night Courts perspective and it was everything!! It was great to get a chance to see what goes on in his mind and really feel what he is feeling. There’s one particular chapter where he visits Tamlin and just so freaking awesome!
  2. Az and Elain – I love these 2, their interactions are just so damn adorable, I love their friendship and in a way I would like to see them together maybe…  I change my mind a lot on this subject sometimes I want her with Lucian and other times I think her and Az should be a thing.
  3. Nessian – Ah I’m so excited to read their story – is it wrong that I’m hoping for angry sex?
  4. Tamlin – Great to see he’s still suffering!
  5. Wall Scene – Finally!
  6. Annual Illyrian snowball fights – just so funny

and now on to the bad:

  1. Fayre – I loved Fayre’s throughout the series and I have sympathized a lot with what she has been through but in this book, she really really fucking annoyed me.  She was a bitch to Lucian for no good reason and I felt like she had no patience with Nesta and no understanding of what she went through, which is ridiculous when you consider all the things Feyre has suffered, I would have hoped she would have had a bit more sympathy for her but she just wanted her Nesta to just be ok for her own piece of mind
  2. Changing storytelling – This book jumped between 3rd and 1st person and I’m not going to lie – I fucking hated it.
  3. Mor – Yeah she just bored me in this book, I feel like her character is doing a little bit of a 360, in ACOMAF she is a badass motherfucker but its like she has regressed a little bit in this book.
  4. Feyre and Rhys decided to start trying for a child – I really really felt like this was just so fucking predictable.

I think I have covered everything, so mostly it was an awesome read with just a little splash of annoyance. I think it was a good way to wrap up Rhys and Fayres story and I’m excited to read the stories of the other members of The Inner Circle.

Review

*I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

At 17 Elizabeth mets Dominic in a bar after using a fake ID. Later that night she ends up at Dominic’s place where she loses her virginity to him. They fall for each other hard and fast and then it all comes tumbling down. 10 Years later all Dominic has on his mind is revenge and all Elizabeth wants is forgiveness.

Not sure where to begin really, I liked this storey but at the same time I didnt really care for it. I liked the storyline but I think it was some of the characters behaviours that gratted my nerves a bit.

Dominc is a tad childish and overall a very confused person especially when it comes to Elizabeth, I mean I kinda get where hes coming from most of the time but I didn’t get how we could have been so blind to what was really going with Elizabeth.

I found myself sympathising with Elizabeth more than Dominic. She is a deeply unhappy person that has been manipulated by her family for most of her life. I just really felt she deserved more.

The story itself was ok I would like to have gotten more answers than I did but I guess more will be revealed in book 2, which I will definitely read because I need answers! Also, I’m really rooting for Elizabeth to get her happy ending!
