*** 4.5 Star Review ***

So here we have Charli... And Nox... And Alton... And Bryce... And a slew of characters who have been ever present and a few we might have forgotten about and didn't think they really had any more importance in the story... But they do.

And the plot thickens. I couldn't put it down. I got a few answers, which only raised more questions. Shocked? I am not shocked, yet the story itself continues to shock me. And awe me. And make my heart beat rapidly. 

Good guys. Bad guys. Who is who? I can never seem to appraise Aleatha enough. Her brain is such a mysterious thing. Her stories are always so full of twists and turns; nothing is ever as it seems. I always wonder how she keeps it all straight and is able to keep the story moving in all directions.

So, this book is over... one more book to go... January... I have to wait until January. I am trying to mentally prepare myself for the end. I never seem to want her series to end. But then I always want to know what the end is. Then, I want more. I think I just confused myself.  
     
BETRAYAL 1

One week. No future. No past. No more. Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as "Charli," she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.   "Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”   Lennox "Nox" Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive—he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one:   One week. No more.   When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.   "Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?"   From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants, and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own.

What will happen when rules are broken and secrets are revealed? "New rules...my rules." Alex "Charli" Collins found pleasure with Nox like she'd never known. That was before she knew his last name. Now that Infidelity is involved and the rules have changed, what will result when real life and fantasy collide? Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?

Review: Roman Crazy by Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci


Avery Bardot steps off the plane in Rome, looking for a fresh start. She’s left behind a soon-to-be ex-husband in Boston and plans to spend the summer with her best friend Daisy, licking her wounds—and perhaps a gelato or two. But when her American-expat friend throws her a welcome party on her first night, Avery’s thrown for a loop when she sees a man she never thought she’d see again: Italian architect Marcello Bianchi.

Marcello was the man—the one who got away. And now her past is colliding with her present, a present where she should be mourning the loss of her marriage and—hey, that fettuccine is delicious! And so is Marcello…
Slipping easily into the good life of summertime in Rome, Avery spends her days exploring a city that makes art historians swoon, and her nights swooning over her unexpected what was old is new again romance. It’s heady, it’s fevered, it’s wanton, and it’s crazy. But could this really be her new life? Or is it just a temporary reprieve before returning to the land of twin-set cardigans and crustless sandwiches?

A celebration of great friendship, passionate romance, and wonderful food, Roman Crazy is a lighthearted story of second chances and living life to the fullest.

*** 3 Star Review ***

This is such a cute story. It's sweet, at times funny, and charming. It is the total opposite of the books I typically read that are dark or full of snark or completely snarky. 

I am at a loss what to say. On one hand, I enjoyed this story. On the other hand, I didn't enjoy it. I am just trying to be honest here. There are parts in the book that had my undivided attention. Then there were parts in-between there that I found myself bored and uninterested. These parts moved so slow.

Overall, this book is definitely one of those books that many people will most likely enjoy. If you are used to books with more complex and on-goings throughout the book, you might not enjoy it as much.

From ENTRAPMENT, Chapter ONE By: Aleatha Romig Copyrighted by Aleatha Romig
 
Alexandria
 THE CAR SLOWED as the large iron gate moved to the side. I fought the urge to look through the back window to see if Clayton and Deloris were still behind the limousine. I feared that if I did, I’d alert Alton. “They won’t be allowed in,” he said with more than a hint of disdain. “Ever.” My heart sank as I turned to the back window and watched the gate close. The limousine’s tires bounced against the long driveway as we moved beneath the giant oak trees. “When we enter the manor,” he continued, “go directly to my office. Suzy and Bryce will be there. I have a few things to discuss with the front guards. Remember what I said. Your refusals and disrespectful tone are done. Don’t make me refocus your attention again.” I fought the nausea twisting in my gut as the car came to a stop on the circular cobblestone driveway. Before the door opened, Alton leaned closer, his hand once again on my knee. “In each directive, Alexandria, I want you to ask yourself two questions.” His words were heavy chains, securing my obedience as well as my captivity. I didn’t dare speak for if I did, I’d surely say something I’d regret, something to cause him to refocus me. “Ask yourself,” he went on, “do I want to see my mother? And do I want her to get better?” The door opposite me opened, flooding the interior with light. Though it came with a blast of warm Georgia autumn air, my flesh prickled with a familiar chill. Before I could move or speak, Alton squeezed my knee. “I’m waiting.” Swallowing the bile, I replied, “I want to see her and I want her better.” “Very well. Remember that.” He motioned for me to get out first. Lowering my sunglasses over my eyes, I accepted Brantley’s hand. “Welcome home, Miss Alexandria.” Not acknowledging his words, I looked up and up toward the tall walls filled with windows. There was no need to correct the name Brantley had used to address me. Instead, I forced myself forward, step by step, as my flat shoes moved over the cobblestone toward the opening front door.

*** 3 Star Review ***

I am just not sure what to think of this story. I was expecting something more from it. Something a little twisty and turny. Something a little more suspenseful.

This book started out pretty good. Then, at some point, it just slowed down and drug. I had to force myself to keep going in hopes it got better.

There were a few twists, which really just pieces of information we get here and there throughout the story to make us second guess what really happened.

This book really wasn't my cup of tea. It was pretty monotonous. It didn't have any suspense. It is just a story about a group of teenagers... and one of them is a murderer. And the ending. Even for fiction, it was a little over the top.


Release Day and Review: The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas



Jodi Ellen Malpas is the New York Times and Sunday Times (UK) bestselling author of two romantic trilogies: This Man and One Night.  Now, Jodi Ellen Malpas is back with her long-awaited next novel—and her first stand-alone story—THE PROTECTOR (Forever; September 6, 2016; $15.99).

People think they have Camille Logan nailed: rich kid, daddy’s girl, beautiful, and spoiled.  But Camille knows that support from her ultra-wealthy and overbearing father comes with a price tag not worth paying for.  She wants a life without his strings.  Out on her own, she’s made a few mistakes, including one that found her clawing her way back after a stint in rehab and plenty of bad press.  Now, after fighting so hard to be independent and happy, she finds her life threatened as a result of her father’s questionable business dealings.  She has no choice but to play ball when he hires an ex-SAS sniper to protect her at all costs.  

Jake Sharp resides in his own personal hell.  He had been distracted from duty once before and the consequences were devastating, both personally and professionally.  He vowed to never let that happen again.  Being the bodyguard to socialite model Camille is exactly the kind of low pressure job he needs.  But he quickly comes to discover that Camille isn’t what he expected.  She’s warm and emotionally generous, and she slowly succeeds in drawing him out of his tough exterior.  Jake’s past haunts him.  Camille’s presence settles him.  But he can’t have both.

*** 3 Star Review ***

This was my first book of Jodi's. Everyone is always raving over her books, so I decided to give this one a try since it isn't a part of a series. I wasn't totally disappointed, but at the same time I wasn't really wowed either.

This story has many layers to it. Between the reason Jake is hired to protect Camille, the building attraction between Jake and Camille, Jake's secrets, Camille's secrets, family secrets... you get my drift. There is definitely enough happening in this story to keep a reader's attention.

Overall, this is a very well written story. I just couldn't connect to it. The alpha male plot is overplayed. And I am not one for the "damsel in distress" so to speak. I expected a more emotionally-charged story. But it wasn't for me. The story overall was fell a little flat for me. Just when I thought things were going to get my heart racing, the story switched and evened out.

Even though I wasn't over the moon with this book, I am not opposed to picking up another one of Jodi's books in the future. She does write well. I think she just tried to make things more complicated than they needed to be. I want more emotion from her characters.


British talent Jodi Ellen Malpas sold hundreds of thousands of e-books of her passionately erotic trilogy This Man before landing a major US publishing deal and sailing straight to the top of the New York Times bestsellers chart in a few short months. Success quickly followed in the UK, with thousands of readers falling head-over-heels for the devastatingly handsome Lord of the Manor Jesse Ward and his feisty counterpart, Ava O’Shea, as all three books became major Sunday Times bestsellers. This was followed by further success with her second series One Night, which introduced the irresistibly enigmatic M. 

Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a Converse and, mojito addict, and has a terrible weak spot for Alpha Males.

Re-Release Day and Review: Love M.D. by Rebecca Rohman





Love M.D. Synopsis

As an accomplished interior designer in San Francisco’s Bay Area, Zoë Jenkins is used to transforming empty spaces into masterpieces. She leaves little square footage in her personal life for anything outside of her thriving business and a renewed relationship with her twin brother. After a decade spent ripped apart by circumstance and an entire ocean’s distance, she depends on no one but him. Until a sexy surgeon walks into her life. 

Although Zoë can’t deny her attraction to the charming and benevolent Morgan Drake, he’s on her mental list of everything she should avoid. Past experience taught Zoë that dating clients compromises business. Add a not-yet-dissolved marriage to the mix and Doctor Hottie is definitely Doctor Off-limits. 

Dr. Morgan Drake is surprised at the undeniable chemistry he feels when he’s in the same room as Zoë. The strikingly beautiful and solitary designer he hired to fill his new-start, new-city home makes it abundantly clear there will never be anything between them. But twelve years of medical school breeds persistence. He sets out to persuade the pants off Zoë Jenkins and show her what her empty spaces are missing. 

Intense passion and amazing sex have a way of masking secrets—secrets that unravel a dangerous web of fraud, corruption and conspiracy that turn Zoë’s quiet spaces into a world where nothing is as it seems. With her life on the line, the good doctor responsible for her fiercest betrayal might just be the only one worthy of her finest interior masterpiece—this time, of her heart.

Excerpt - Discussing Dr. Morgan Drake 


Zach pulls me close and kisses my forehead. “Zoë, if anyone knows how you feel it’s me. Just try. Maybe go on a date with Doctor You Know Who. If I deserve this, you do, too. You’re the better half of us.”

I chuckle at his response, and after a tight squeeze, I pull away. “Somehow I don’t think so. For all I know, he and his ex might be rekindling the flame right now.”

“I don’t think so. A guy doesn’t go all out trying to impress a woman unless he’s seriously interested, and I think he’s made his feelings pretty clear. If I usually get what I want isn’t clear, I don’t know what is.”

“Maybe what he really wants is a quick lay.”

“A quick lay doesn’t send you long stem roses and gifts. Is this about him or you?”

“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

“Is that right? I think you know how he feels. As usual, I think you’re avoiding acknowledging this because you like him—a lot. You don’t want to get hurt again, so you won’t admit how you really feel.”

Laughing carelessly, I reply, “I emphatically disagree with that statement.”

“You can emphatically disagree all you want, but it’s the truth.”

At the same moment, Peaches runs into the kitchen with something in her mouth.

“What’s that you’ve got there girl?” Zach asks, scratching her ears.

I turn my back to pull some quiche from the oven.

“Zoë Baylee Jenkins, what is this?”

I turn to see him holding a Ralph Lauren sock in his hand. I know that could only belong to Morgan. I guess I forgot to mention to him that he should be careful about leaving socks around when he was here. Peaches has a sock fetish.

“Are you blind? It’s a sock.”

“Yes, but whose is it?”

“I don’t know. She must have found that somewhere outside.”

Inspecting it, he responds. “You are such a liar. He was here wasn’t he? You’ve been holding out on me.”

I try with all my might to not break out into a smile and keep my secret safe. “Maybe.”

Hmmm… getting regular injections yet?”

I try, I really do but I can’t keep a straight face, and I break out in laughter. “It wasn’t like that.”

“Exactly how was it?”

“He came home early and the guys had just refinished the floors so he couldn’t stay at the house. We tried to find him a hotel, but they were all booked for the weekend because of some major conference, and his sister and dad were out of town for the weekend. I offered him a bed for the night.”

“Your bed?”

“No. He slept in the guest room, thank you very much.”

“You didn’t sleep too well that night, did you?” With a naughty grin, he rubs his palms together. “Any kissy kissy?”

“There was not.”

“Why don’t you just admit it? You like him.”

I smile but don’t respond.

“You barely even give out your address, much less let anyone come to your home. Let’s see in two years who’s been here: Jada, Jonathan, Megan, Sheila, Lisa, Leo and Trevor… oh and Gail and, might I add, out of all those five are our staff members. Out of the two or three guys you had relations with after Todd, not one of them made it to your doorstep, and I’m supposed to believe that this is not a big deal.”

“You’re entitled to your thoughts and opinions.”

“Say whatever you want, but I know you better than you know yourself. Better stock up on those batteries, because if nothing happened between you two, as you claimed last night, you’re going to need them.”























My Review


What I love most about Rebecca's writing is her ability to get so wrapped up in ALL of the characters in her books. You can't help but to want more and more of every last person. This book is no different.

Rebecca's books are never just a love story. There is always something that smacks you in the face. Twists and turns are her thing. Again, we think the story is moving in one direction and then we get a wrench... Waiting for the turn to go back to where it should be!

I loved these characters. How can I not? An interior designer and a doctor? That just screams success! It's the perfect combo! Throw in failed past relationships and a recent failed marriage... That is the perfect recipe for this book!

I can sit here all day and go through the story and gush about how wonderful it is... But I won't! This is one of those books you should just trust when I say, READ THIS BOOK! You won't be disappointed!
