The perfect man for her is the one she hates most. #gofigure

Dating is hard.

Dating in your thirties is even harder.

Dating in Chicago is harder still.

I haven’t given up on finding my happily-ever-after, but in the age of swiping right and Netflix and chill, I’m wondering if everything is as temporary as my marriage turned out to be.

Truth is, there is one guy I can’t get my mind off of.

Roarke Baldwin has salt and pepper hair I’ve dreamed of running my hands through and I’m pretty sure that if I checked he really does have a six pack of abs underneath his suit. And I’ve always wondered what that stubble on his face would feel like between my thighs.

The problem? He’s the one man I hate more than my ex-husband…

His divorce attorney.

I can sum Happy Hour up in one sentence, it’s as good as the blurb sounds. How could any reader not be hooked by the blurb for this one?

‘The perfect man for her is the one she hates most. #gofigure
…The problem? He’s the one man I hate more than my-husband…
His divorce attorney.’
 

I’ll be honest, I missed reading the first two books for this series (Manic Monday and Afternoon Delight); did this detract anything from this swoon worthy read? Answer: not in the least. Did I find Chelsea, Victoria, and their sexy men less because I hadn’t read their stories? Not at all. I am wishing I had read them though, purely from the fact that both Reed and Dean appear so perfect that I’m dying to find out if they have any blemishes or scuffs on them.

Happy Hour became one of those little gems that a reader finds so infrequently. The ones where the characters appear human and their personalities shine so bright that each interaction between them comes across as if the reader is actually sitting around the table lapping up the zingers as they’re thrown back and forth.

I adored the interplay in this book. There were so many funny moments to enjoy. Happy Hour runs the gambit of emotions and at times, doesn’t take itself seriously. Though when it comes to the main characters, their emotions felt so real that they left me with goosebumps more than once.

“Why do I feel like you have more to add?”
“That was just my opening statement. I have more to add.” I playfully roll my eyes. “I can only imagine what you’re going to say now.” He clears his throat.
“I’ll make it short.”
“Short doesn’t seem like your style.”
 

I’ll be sure to keep an eye on these authors in the future. Thank you and congratulations.

MODEL BOYFRIEND by Stuart Reardon & Jane Harvey-Berrick is LIVE!

MODEL BOYFRIEND by Stuart Reardon
& Jane Harvey-Berrick IS NOW AVAILABLE!

SYNOPSIS

A powerful contemporary romance set in the fast-moving world of international modelling.

What’s it like dating one of the most beautiful men in the world? A man whose face is on every magazine and ad campaign?

Not as much fun as it sounds, as Anna Scott is about to find out.

Retired from rugby at the age of 33, injured and bored, Nick is given the chance to enter the high stakes world of fashion photography as a model.

But behind the glittering façade lies an ugly reality: drugs, alcohol, all the deadly sins, and people willing to sleep their way to the top.

It’s a tough life and tougher on relationships.

Nick needs to learn to navigate the treacherous path quickly or risk losing it all—including the woman who has become his reason for living.

In this glamorous world, there is no room for error. Being a MODEL BOYFRIEND has never been harder.

Can nice guy Nick find his way through, or will he be tempted to risk it all? Because the one thing he despises is failure.

He’s a lot more than a pretty face.

This story continues where UNDEFEATED left off, although it can also be read as a stand-alone story in its own right.

Reviewed by ANNA GREEN ON BEHALF OF KFF

Model Boyfriend is the follow up to Undefeated, Anna and Nick’s story. It gives you a closer look on the real life behind the glitz and glam of the sports world and modelling. If you haven’t read Undefeated, I would suggest that you read it first so you can get the full background of this pair.

This is the book where you go beyond the happy ever after: this is Anna and Nick’s reality. In Undefeated, the authors gave us the fast paced world of rugby; however, this time we get a deeper insight into the glamorous but tawdry world of modelling. With Nick’s career in rugby closing to an end, his retirement brought up feelings of aimlessness and boredom. Anna’s insecurities rise to the surface again and the antagonist from the previous book makes a vengeful return. How in the world can this couple deal with their relationship when real life sets in?

Although I felt that some parts of the book were slower paced albeit interesting and more about the ins and outs of the fashion world and technical aspects of photography, the tempo picked up when other new characters were thrown into the pot. The authors’ writing style showed cohesiveness and is well written; I felt Nick’s pain when he was at a loss and he struggled in finding an alternative goal, and I shared Anna’s dread when she slowly felt Nick starting to distance himself again. I am glad that Brendan, Anna’s personal assistant and best friend played a bigger part in this book. He was the much needed “lift” in this romantic tale, someone who made me laugh with his outrageous and funny quips. I am so happy that Brendan’s character wasn’t made out to be a caricature of the gay best friend as he deserved more. The authors did him justice in giving us his story and was definitely an added bonus. I totally enjoyed reading about Anna and Nick again and I am sure you will too.

Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse

Reiss is an expert at leaving you hanging on a precipice. Fortunately, for those of us who are hooked lock, stock and barrel on this series, the wait for Broken Edge wasn’t at all long. I couldn’t get her two protagonists out of my mind and was anxious to see what the author had in store for them. Surprises, there are! Book three picks up where On the Edge left off and if you’re like me, the last maneuver Caden made probably left you aghast. I didn’t think he should have done it; however, there’s quite a twist going on here and much to his wife’s dismay, nothing was going to stop him.

Actually, this is the first time I really got annoyed with Caden. I thought he could have solved his personal issues alongside his wife who would do anything in her power to help him. But oh no, he had to go and complicate matters. Of course, in his eyes he was only trying to make a really complicated situation better. Now then, in this story, everything goes haywire. Greyson’s decision to indirectly join forces with him didn’t please me, either. Yet on reflection, I shouldn’t have expected any less of her seeing as she’s madly in love with her husband. Believe you me, there’s never a dull moment in this read and since the author wouldn’t let her readers have it any other way, the build up to an unanticipated scenario is excruciatingly angst-ridden. In general, the plot’s pace is fast; nonetheless, there is a lull just before halfway which gave me some breathing space. I kid you not! From the second-half onwards, it felt as if I was on a collision course, waiting for the impact to happen.

My lack of trust regarding one of the characters who plays a crucial part in Caden and Greyson’s story, got worse as the story evolved. Man, is this guy bad news or what! His self-importance and pretenses, false or not, enraged me no end. I saw through him though, or at least I think I did. Question is, will this couple and is it really what it seems because I should be used to Reiss twisting the truth by now! When Caden eventually confronted his fears, I let out a sigh of relief only to be thrown back into a turmoil. The ending which isn’t the ending…well, I’m at a loss for words.

I really don’t want to spoil this must read for you; therefore I shall cut this review short. What I do I have to mention before going is that I was in two minds whether or not to give Broken Edge 4.5 or 5 stars. The previous books were like, what the heck am I reading! Even though the setting in this one is harsh, emotions don’t seem to run so high and gave the read a different feel to it. I cannot deny that Reiss’ wizardry storytelling and spectacular prose kept me stuck to the pages throughout. I liked the books structure too, and as always, narrated from different points of view in past tense is my kinda stuff. The banter. Bloody marvellous! So five stars it is, and well-deserved I might add. Bravo!

About CD Reiss:

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

The much anticipated book 3 in the Deliverance Series is finally here. For those who read Dazed and Conflicted, now it’s time to catch up with the group again while following Morgan’s story.

 

Blurb

I’m told if you love someone you should let them go. Nobody tells you that doing so will break your soul in half.
My life was easy when I had the college boyfriend who ticked all the right boxes. The night I laid eyes on Enoch Carter everything changed.
I thought I was doing the right thing. Now I know I was wrong. I don’t know how to retrace my steps, how to repair the distance, fix the mess I made.
I never meant to fall in love.

I stayed away because she was off limits. I broke the code, then left her bed without a backward glance.
All the black marks on my heart would make her dirty and I won’t allow that.
Friendship is all I can offer. Even if she doesn’t want my friendship, she needs it now more than ever.
I shouldn’t love her.
I can’t love her.
I won’t.

4.5 Stars ~ Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF

The trope in this book was one that has been used time and again; however, it was done within an entirely new scenario. Cutter Bryant a former military man turned personal bodyguard is completely selfless. Pledging to help his oldest friend in whatever way matters, knowing how small towns can be and that Brea isn’t as strong as she could be.

Cutter is called away to L.A. to protect an up and coming actress by the name of Shealyn West, only things are not at all what they were originally described as. The romantic electricity zings back and forth right from the first page that these two meet. Both grew up in small towns in the American South, and both believe in living honest and decent lives.

‘Yep, he was going to fall hard for Shealyn West and there wasn’t a thing he could do to stop it anymore. At the moment, he didn’t want to. He’d deal with the fallout later.’ 

Between scenes highlighting the hard slog of working on a night time soap in Hollywood, and the sexual tension between our stars; there is tension and mystery. Someone(s) is blackmailing the small town Hollywood star, threatening to release one of biggest regrets and ruin her life and her career. The mystery and action was hard and intense, bringing Cutter and Shealyn into near enough distance that they kept circling each other like a hunter looking for the death shot on their wounded prey.

As a lover of mysteries and thrillers, it takes a lot to pull the wool over my eyes. I’m more often than not correct when it comes to pinning the tail on the correct donkey. Only here I never saw half the pieces of the puzzle until Ms Black was ready for me to.

‘Cherished it. Enjoyed the heck out of feeling her ecstasy.
And he climaxed to it, the heady. Dizzying, sizzling sensations burning him, disintegrating him, transforming him.
Yeah, no doubt. He’d fallen in love with the one woman h3e couldn’t have beyond this assignment and didn’t deserve forever.’
 

I’ve had several books this author has penned sitting in my TBR pile for such a long time. However, Devoted to Pleasure was too tempting to pass up. I just wished the beginning of this book wouldn’t have been so hard to get into at first. I relished the character interaction and the realism to the story. I wistfully wished the evil paparazzi would just get sucked up into a vortex and leave these poor celebrities along, and I truly hoped for a happy ending. Thank you Ms. Black for such an incredible read.

THE BACHELOR AUCTION by J.C. Reed is LIVE!

J.C. Reed’s all-new NA/Contemporary Romance Novella, THE BACHELOR AUCTION is now AVAILABLE!

The Bachelor Auction 

“Out of all the stupid things I could have said and done, insulting the rich and influential guy who could make or break our business has probably topped the charts. Calling someone a creep isn’t so bad, is it?”

All is fair in love and business…
My friend’s plan is pretty simple: win the bachelor auction in a charity event and get the most influential man to sign a business deal with us. It’s a do or die situation. But plans rarely go as you would expect.
When the bids begin to take ginormous proportions, my friend can’t stop in her rush of excitement. We don’t have the money. We can’t afford him, and yet, before I can even comprehend what’s happening, we’re the highest bid.

“The bachelor” aka Tyler Becks isn’t old and ugly. He isn’t very business-like, either. In fact, it’s hard to imagine that someone with his brain and bank account can be this sexy.He understands our cash-strapped situation and is kind enough to cancel the bid. Let us out of the contract. No hard feelings. Or so he claims.

He’s even kind enough to want to work with us. With me, in particular. I can’t refuse, even though working for him means I have to see him every day. My future depends on it.
I won’t let my guard down. I won’t fall for him, and particularly not now that I know he’s hiding something from me.

Everything comes at a price. Even Tyler’s generosity.

But how much am I willing to pay? I’m about to find out.

Author’s note: Standalone coffee read. No cliffhanger. HEA.
