IMG_5273I met Bianca in an elevator.

She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck.

The beautiful, raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed.

She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she’d dubbed “Mister Moneybags”—her afternoon appointment.

Bianca told me how much she hated Dex’s type—snobby, over educated, silver- spooned men who didn’t appreciate the simple things in life.

So, after the elevator finally started moving again, I cancelled the interview and let her believe I was someone I wasn’t—a bike messenger named Jay. I loved the way she looked at the fake me and didn’t want it to end.

I began dating her as “Jay”—all the while letting her interview the real me over email.

I didn’t expect that our chemistry online would be just as hot.

I didn’t expect the mess I’d gotten myself into.

I didn’t expect that Jay and Dex would fall in love with her.

And she was falling for two men.

Only, both men were me.

And when she found out, we were both going to lose her.

Nothing could have prepared me for that day. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for what came after.

All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Bleed the Water Red by R.L. Griffin

Release date: March 23, 2017

Blurb:
When Kate Tennison returns to the low country of South Carolina it’s with her tail tucked between her legs. She doesn’t want to be there and face the love of her life, who’s now married with a child. Distance has not broken the spell of fear that surrounds why she ran from her home in the first place.

Her story is a tragic one.

Mom in rehab.

Father dead.

Career annihilated.

When we run from something looking back over our shoulder, we miss the scars on the arms that now hold us.

Can the magic of the water heal her wounded heart or does something dangerous lurk underneath the perfect features of the new man she’s decided to take a chance on?

Beautiful

4.5 Stars

Where do I start, how do I start?! I want to say everything about this book but can’t, I won’t spoil anything, but my mind is blown! Without a doubt R.L. Griffin is one of my all time favorites, I love her words and what she can do with a story. For me she is the queen of ‘be careful what you wish for’ and she always keeps me on my toes. Bleed the Water Red is no exception to that, this story is powerful, it’s emotional and it is twisted!

Kate is a broken woman, she’s returning to her hometown even though it’s the last place she wants to be. At least she has her best friend Poppy and the water. She wants love, she wants to be happy but she’s all to familiar with pain, pain seems to follow her no matter where she is. There’s old love and new love in store for her, but not everyone is she thinks they are.

There is so much I want to say about this story, to break down all the moments and the characters but I can’t do that! There’s a slow build to the beginning of this story, really getting to know these characters and then the twists start coming and I couldn’t put it down! There is a brutal honesty to this story, a rawness you can feel. Life certainly doesn’t always go the way you planned it and even when it seems like it is lies can tear it to shreds.

I love what R.L. Griffin did with this story! She took me on a twisted, mind-fuck ride and it was brilliant! These characters are complex and phenomenal, even the ones you want to kill. Bleed the Water Red kept me guessing, R.L. Griffin shocked me to my core a few times, making me question my own sanity. This book must be experienced – lies, pain, honesty, lost love, found love and hope. Another amazing book from R.L. Griffin!

Synopsis

A glittering diamond, the promise of forever, and the hope that your future in-laws will move to a galaxy far, far away…sounds like a decadent recipe for eternal happiness, doesn’t it? All girls dream about their wedding day, fantasize about each and every gooey-delicious detail. It’s so easy to get scooped by the champagne bubbles and swallowed by our dreams.

 

But we all know the magical path toward happily ever after is not always sprinkled with pixie dust. Sometimes, we stumble over our plans for a perfect future and choke on the words promising forever. We watch the path take a defiant turn away from our blissful paradise because everybody has secrets, and skeletons, and fears.

 

And sometimes, being drunk in love isn’t always enough.

Oh man, I had a lot of fun reading this collection of stories. They are fun, naughty and sometimes just a downright tease, but I definitely enjoyed them all. There were some that were sweet and just made me smile and others that steamed up my kindle! All of these are quick reads but yet I felt like I got to know these characters and their stories. This is a great collection of stories benefiting an amazing cause.
There were so many stories in this anthology that it’s difficult to review each of them individually so I’d love just share my overall impression. I really enjoyed them all, but I definitely had some favorite moments. Entice by AD Justice amused me the whole way through and man did I just love Justin and can easily say I need more of their story! Another favorite was easily Stripped Bare by Melissa Collins – LOVED IT!
Overall, these are great, fun reads to support an amazing cause. Be prepared though, some are teasers for full novels and they’ll definitely have you adding books to your TBR list immediately!

Nerdy, introverted genius lepidopterist, Lawson Gale, is an expert on butterflies. He finds himself in a small town in Tasmania on a quest from an old professor to find an elusive species that may or may not even exist.

Local Parks and Wildlife officer, Jack Brighton, is an ordinary guy who loves his life in the sleepy town of Scottsdale. Along with his Border collie dog, Rosemary, his job, and good friends, he has enough to keep from being lonely.

But then he meets Lawson, and he knows he’s met someone special. There’s more to catching butterflies, Jack realises. Sometimes the most elusive creatures wear bowties, and sometimes they can’t be caught at all.

Lawson soon learns there are butterflies he can’t learn about it in books. They exist only in a touch, in a kiss, in a smile. He just has to let go first, so these butterflies can fly.

Imago is the story of finding love, bowties, and butterflies.

4-4.5 Stars

Imago is an adorable heart-warming read and I absolutely fell head over heels in love with Jack and Lawson. They are such wonderful, endearing characters and their story is fun and wonderful. I’m a big N.R. Walker fan and this is definitely a new favorite for me. The focus is on Jack and Lawson and their journey together, sweet and pure, not with unnecessary angst or drama. Sometimes you just need that book that reminds you how great in can be to fall in love.

Jack is outdoorsy and loves his job and his community, he’s adjusted to small town life perfectly. Lawson is a genius, he studies butterflies and loves it but his social life is a bit lacking. He tends to say what he thinks and runs on logic. When Jack and Lawson meet on a flight, it’s not necessarily love at first sight but when Jack offers to help Lawson when he’s stranded in the airport things change quickly for these two and they discover a strong connection despite their differences.

I loved this story, adored Jack and Lawson and even the science in this story. Lawson is so wonderfully nerdy with his technical terms and literal views of the world and then there’s the bow-ties. LOVE THEM! These two bond quickly and realize that they have something so very special together, something neither man can let go of. The writing is alive and will make you feel like you are a part of the story, right there with Jack and Lawson. I adored their sweet journey and can’t wait to see what is next for this beautiful couple. As always, N.R. Walker has delivered and sweet and hot story that goes right to the heart!

Title: Don’t Speak
Series: Modern Fairytale #5 (Standalone)
Author: Katy Regnery
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2017

 

Blurb

From New York Times bestseller Katy Regnery comes a new twist on a beloved fairytale.In this modern retelling of The Little Mermaid, a fisherman’s daughter from an Outer Banks island untouched by time, meets the son of the North Carolina governor at a fancy party she helps to cater.

Laire, who wants more from life than her little island can offer, is swept away by wealthy, sophisticated Erik, who is, in turn, entranced by her naiveté and charm. The two spend a whirlwind summer together that ends on the knife-point of heartbreak and forces them to go their separate ways.

Years later, when fate finds them together once again, they will discover the terrifying depth of the secrets they kept from each other, and learn that shattered hearts can only be healed by a love that willfully refuses to die.

All novels Katy Regnery’s ~a modern fairytale~ collection are written as fundraisers. 10% of the e-book sales for in March and April 2017 will be donated.

 jenn-review

4 – 4.5 Swoony Stars

I absolutely love what Katy Regnery is doing with this fairy tale series, it’s just brilliant and Don’t Speak is a great addition. This is a wonderful second chance love story beautifully told. Erik and Laire are amazing characters and their journey together will touch your heart, make you cry and laugh too.

Erik and Laire come from completely different worlds, Erik is the son of the governor of North Carolina, and his parents have clear expectations for his future. Laire is a sheltered fisherman’s daughter living on an island off the coast. Her family has lived on that island for generations and the expectation is that Laire will marry a local boy and start having children and live her life on that island. But those aren’t her dreams, she wants to get out, see the world, go to school and become a designer. When Laire and Erik meet there is something special between them right from the start and they begin a secret romance, both falling madly in love.

Life is never that easy though and their story takes a turn for the tragic, there are misunderstandings and mistakes and major heart break. But, once these two finally find each other again, oh it was beautiful and gave me all the FEELS. Time has passed their lives are different now, but their love is still there, despite the pain. The truth comes out and these two can finally rebuild together.

This is a great journey and I absolutely loved the feeling of The Little Mermaid throughout the story, again just brilliant! Don’t Speak was a fun and emotional read that I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend. I love this series and can’t wait to read the next fairy tale!

Author Bio

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

The only thing more dangerous than a dark secret is a damaged heart…

 

Shane Brandon has been pushed to the brink, torn between his corrupt family and his explosive, all-consuming desire for Emily Stevens, who he now knows is not who, and what, she seems. Has he trusted the wrong person? Will she, not his brother Derek, be the ultimate destruction of his family Empire.

Emily tries to run from Shane, but he will stop her, confront her, force her to reveal all – one hot touch and kiss, at a time, under every intimate detail of who this woman is, and what she wants, is exposed. But as he tears away the dangers of the unknowns with the woman in his bed, and in his heart, The Martina Cartel, has set their sights on his company, his family, and the one piece of leverage they believe he won’t gamble with: Emily.

Shane and Emily are back! Damage Control is full of secrets, lies, passion and love! This book starts right where the first one left off, getting the reader right back into their story. This really is a great series full of suspense and drama and I was totally consumed by their story. I love the drama without over the top angst.

Shane wants answers from Emily, he has enough family drama without Emily’s secrets in the mix. He’s convinced they are tied to his family and he’s not going to let her run. She tries, but Shane and the pull she feels towards him are too much. When she finally tells the truth he sets out to protect her and his family, even though Emily was trying to protect Shane. I love these two together, they want to save each other.

There are great twists and turns in this story and a lot of mystery about what is going to happen to the Brandon empire as well as Emily and the past she is running from. I love the suspense of it and trying to sort through everything. There is a lot that happens so be prepared for the ride. This book is part of a series though so don’t expect to get all the answers the happily ever after bow yet, we are still in the middle of everything. Even with the cliffhangers I really enjoy this series, each book giving me pieces of the puzzle and leave me wanting and needing MORE! I love the family drama, the passion and the possibilities for Shane and Emily! I’m already looking forward to the next book!

If you haven’t read Hard Rules, you definitely need to start there – this series must be read in order but it’s worth it, this is a must read series.

EXCERPT

“You make me remember I need to be good and right in my choices.”

“Do you ever question doing what is good and right?”

“There have been times when I felt like my hand was forced.”

“When you were a lawyer?”

“No,” I say. “I manipulated the law, as does every attorney, but I never broke it. I’m talking about when I’m with my family.”

“Did you go where they lead?”

“Not so far.”

“That sounds like you might.”

“I don’t want to be them.”

“You aren’t them. You don’t have to be them.”

“I know that,” I say. “But you just keep telling me so I don’t forget.” Her legs hit the bed frame and she grips my arms.

I lean into a kiss and she pulls back, her hand pressing on my chest. “Wait. Now it’s my turn to say talk to me. Are you okay?”

“Death happened. The one thing I can’t control. It’s not the night to push me to stop protecting you. Not tonight. Can you do that?”

“Yes. We can.”

“We,” I repeat, “and that word sounds as good on my tongue as I know you’re going to taste. I’m going to make love to you properly. The way I plan to many times in our future.” I reach down and untie her robe, letting it fall open; my fingers sliding underneath just far enough to tease her nipples. They pucker beneath my touch, and her lashes flutter, settling on her cheeks. “But when it’s over, I’m going to fuck you hard and fast again.”

I tug gently on her nipples and she bites her lips. “Look at me,” I order gently.

She opens her eyes, and there is desire in their depths, but there are shadows there too,. I do not think she intends for me to see doubt or uncertainty that wasn’t there before. That I do not like or wish to know ever again. I want it gone. Now. Tomorrow. Forever. I reach up and rip the silk tie from her robe, wrapping it around my hand, before I reach up and caress the robe off her shoulder, letting it tumble to the ground.

“Give me your hands,” I order, but it’s really a question: Does she still trust me?

She studies me for several beats, her eyes narrowing ever so slightly, and I do not know what she sees in mine, but she offers me her hands. I wrap the silk around her wrists then lean in close to her, my cheek against her cheek, my body touching her nowhere else. “Now you’re at my mercy.”

“Yes,” she agrees. “I am.”

“How do you feel about that?”

“Warm.”

My lips curve with the answer that is every bit the combination of sweet sexy honesty I’ve come to expect from her. “I’m going to make you warmer.”

“Promise?”

I go still with that question, which on the surface is innocent, but I wonder if it truly is or if it’s about those shadows in her eyes. “I promise,” I say. “And you know, I never—”

“Make a promise you don’t keep.”

“Exactly,” I say, and her reference to my previous words tells me that I am not the only one on a mission of trust, and I intend to deserve hers.

I bring my hands to just above her shoulders, letting them lightly touch her before beginning a slow caress downward. She makes a soft little sound that has my cock thickening and my blood running hot, but I won’t rush this. My lips follow, tracing a line down one of her arms, then the other. I lean and caress my lips over hers, a feather light touch that teases me, if not her.

I take her hands in mine, pressing them behind her head. “Hold them there, for me, so I can see all of you. Understand?”

“You intend to tease me incessantly,” she says, without so much as a hint of hesitation. “Yes. I understand.”

I wrap my arm around her waist and pull her naked body against me, my free hand on hers above her head, our mouths a breath apart. “I intend to lick every part of you, and then do it again, so yes. If that’s the definition of incessant teasing, then yes. I am going to tease you incessantly.” I close my mouth down on hers, my tongue licking into her mouth, a deep, hungry tasting I force myself to end far too quickly. “That was the beginning. Should I could continue?”

“Yes. Please.”

“Please,” I say. “I like that.”

5 Star Review: Mack Daddy by Penelope Ward

mack daddy available

This book is AMAZING! I absolutely loved every bit of it! I hope you’ll check out my 5 star review and one-click – it’s totally worth it! Mack Daddy is already a favorite of 2017!

Happy Reading!

~Jenn

 

pwmackdaddybookcover5x8_bw_high-fixedFrom New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward, comes a sexy, STANDALONE second-chance romance.

They called him Mack Daddy. No, seriously, his name was Mack. Short for Mackenzie. Thus, the nickname. Perfect, right?

So was he: perfect. The perfect physical male specimen.

At the private school where I taught, Mack Morrison was the only man around in a sea of women.

Everyone wanted a piece of the hot single father of the sweet little boy.

I was riddled with jealousy, because they didn’t know that—to me—he was much more.

They didn’t know about our past.

He’d chosen my school for his son on purpose, because Mack and I, we had unfinished business.

As my friend Lorelai so eloquently put it: “Unfinished business between two people who are clearly attracted to each other is like an eternal case of blue balls.” And I was suffering in pain from my case.

I was still intensely attracted to Mack. I tried to resist him, immersing myself further into a relationship with another man just to protect my heart.

Not to mention, getting involved with a parent was strictly against school rules. But seeing Mack day in and day out was breaking me down.

And soon I might be breaking all the rules.

Author’s note – Told in alternating points of view, Mack Daddy is a full-length standalone novel.

I LOVE this book, every single thing! I’m a sucker for a second chance story and Mack Daddy is a new favorite for me. This book starts off fun and light hearted, Mack wants a second chance with Frankie and he isn’t going to take no for an answer. She was once his best friend, but deep down she was always the one. Mack thinks he has a plan and maybe Frankie does love him, but it’s never that easy right? Oh the FEELS in this book. There were laughs and tears and oh man I just felt this story.

This story really has it all, an awesome friendship that always should have been more, angst and pain and a very true and strong love. I absolutely adored Mack and his determination, he may be a bit cocky but underneath that super smexy swagger is an amazing father and a heart so big it made my own heart melt. Frankie is quirky and loveable and an amazingly strong woman, even if she doesn’t totally believe it. All I can really say is READ THIS BOOK! Mack Daddy really is the perfect combination of fun, drama and swoon, Penelope Ward is just amazing!

5 Stars

This was such a fun read, filled with baked goods, a who-done-it, and a hint of romance too! I love a good mystery and this book kept me guessing and was entertaining with this group of characters. Julia is as loveable as the amazing cakes she creates!

Having recently moved back to the small village she is from, Julia’s life is now all about running her café, making amazing cakes and treats and staring at the divorce papers she doesn’t want to sign. She loves her little village though, everyone knows each other plus she has her grandmother and sister. Then one day an attractive stranger moves into a cottage down the street, he’s a bit mysterious and sexy too. Their quiet lives change when Julia discovers a murder – things certainly aren’t what they seem and the sexy stranger, Barker Brown is actually a detective who moved out of the big city for a slower pace. Julia gets involved, conducting her own investigation and finds out there is so much more to her small town.

I loved this story, the way everything unfolds keep the mystery going strong and proved that even in a small town people can have their secrets. This story really kept me guessing, thinking I had it figured out one moment only to be surprised the next. This was a fantastic cozy mystery and wonderful story to get lost in. I loved the interactions between Julia and Barker, with little teases of attraction between them. I am definitely excited to see what happens next in this series!

5 Star Review: Egomaniac by Vi Keeland

Egomanaic by Vi Keeland is an absolute MUST READ! Oh my goodness, I absolutely adored this book! Drew and Emerie will steal you heart (Drew will probably steal your panties!) I hope you’ll check out my review and the fantastic teasers!

Happy Reading!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00072]

The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office.
I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.
He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.
Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.
Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent.
I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place.
I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind.
I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages.
The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.
And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

This book was fantastic, I absolutely loved everything about it from start to finish! I adored Drew and Emerie and couldn’t put this book down! It has humor, sass and heart oh and lets not forget about the smoking hot chemistry too! Egomanaic is definite must read! I have yet to find a Vi Keeland book I didn’t love.

Drew is a hotshot divorce attorney who is good at his job. He’s a powerful guy with a lot of personality, definitely an alpha man. Emerie is the perfect mix of sweet and sassy, never afraid to give it right back when someone’s giving her a hard time. She’s smart, even if a little naïve but completely loveable. When she moves to New York, she finds a great deal renting office space, unfortunately it’s all a scam, it’s actually Drew’s office. A real estate scam, late night working and some awesome krav maga moves are the perfect start for Drew and Emerie’s story!

Drew offers to help Emerie out, helping with the police report for the scam, letting her use the office space if she helps him while his assistant is out on medical leave and during that time the two get to know each other better and form a friendship. Drew discovers the real reason Emerie moved to New York, following her heart and a guy named Baldwin, hoping that he finally notices her and returns her feelings. Emerie discovers that Drew has his own baggage, a nasty divorce and the story of his son.

There’s a slow burn in the beginning, really getting to know these characters and seeing their relationship build. Drew is a hit it and quit it kind of guy who does not make any apologies for that. Emerie is dealing with the feelings she thought she had for Baldwin. But, they both are seeing that there is more between them. It’s fun and romantic and completely swoon-worthy! These two just click together, whether it’s their playful banter, which is just fantastic, or their scorching chemistry or their real, honest moments, they just work. But life is never that easy and Drew especially has to face his past to make a future with Emerie, if that’s even possible.

Overall, this was a fun and sexy read, but there are moments that broke my heart too! Drew is a wonderful man with an amazing heart, but he’s got some baggage and some walls! I adored this book, it was everything I wanted and more and already a favorite for me. I laughed and cried and got mad and totally fell in love. The writing, the story and the beautiful way it all came together, just perfect!
