 REVIEW:

I would give this book 3.5 out of 5 stars.

This was a super short quick read.  If you loved Kayla and Tyler in Sharing The Virgin you will love them in this one.  I do feel you could read this as a standalone though if you haven’t read the first book mostly because it is so quick and really is just about Tyler and Kayla.

Tyler is HOT, HOT, HOT and you can’t help but want him like Kayla does.

My biggest issue is that while I know it was a novella it was a little TOO short…I wished there was a little bit of actual resistance from Kayla (you know some actual teasing of Tyler!) and more of a description about what made Tyler change his mind about being with only Kayla.  The sex is really hot though and you can’t help but enjoy this quick read.

button-synopsis

Crenshaw Jacobson met the woman of his dreams…and he was determined to spend every night possible with her. But Waverlee Armstrong was leery of commitment, having been abandoned by her family at an early age. She knew that she loved Shaw…but can she learn to trust him and spend just one more night?

button-excerpt

Shivering against him as she parted her lips to speak, Waverlee moaned as his tongue swept forward, stealing the opportunity to deepen their kiss. And holy moly, the man could kiss. And not just any old kiss either. It was the-steal-your-breath-I-can’t-live-without-his-touch-because-nothing-else-in-the-world-matters kind of kiss a girl spends her life dreaming about. Their tongues danced together for long minutes as everything else faded away. The people. The noise. Everything took a backseat to the fierce passion Shaw created with a simple touch of his mouth to hers.

Forcing herself to find her voice when Shaw lifted his mouth from hers to take a deep breath, Waverlee flashed a furtive glance up at his darkened eyes. “Wow,” she breathed shakily, clutching handfuls of his light blue dress shirt in her fists as the world seemed to spin at warp speed, “I..I…don’t think I’ve ever felt anything like that before,” she whispered, the words catching in her throat as his finger swept against her lower lip.

“Then you best hold on real tight to me, baby, ‘cause I’m just getting started,” he replied, dropping his head to steal another deep, wet kiss from her lips as he curved one big hand around her neck, wrapping her silky hair around his fist and tugging gently.

button-reviewI will be the first to admit that I don’t usually love novellas nor older man younger woman stories but this is one exception.  This book was so much fun.  Shaw saw Waverlee and knew he needed to have her, even went so far as to find out everything about her through a PI.  Poor Waverlee has been through so much pain and heartache that she was cautious, but there was something about Shaw that drew her in.  I loved how the author described their first kiss and from that moment I was hooked.  You never really felt a problem with the age difference nor do they dwell on it EVER!  And while this was instalove it didn’t feel like it was as rushed as some books, I give it up to Sarah O’Rourke to make me enjoy a novella with an older man, younger woman.

Review
Olivia and Nate are such a sweet couple, who both have their own issues/problems to deal with.  Olivia spent the past year basically alone after what her ex did to her and she was not sure how she would survive.
You can’t help but root for this couple and Nate is not your typical hero in that he isn’t overbearing and never once did I feel he messed things up with her and needed to fix it….which is a nice change of pace for a book these days.  Nate and Olivia’s meeting honestly was the best, you couldn’t help but chuckle, and their instant attraction was off the charts.  I love that Nate was willing to wait for her as long as she needed.
You also fall in love with Olivia’s brother Finn and her best friend Cora.  Both care so much about Olivia and Nate as well as Nate and Finn are best friends.
The drama throughout this book goes well and gives a little bit of mystery and intrigue and it is nice having an enemy to root against in the book.
But the only downside I saw was that in a lot of ways Olivia and Nate were hard to tell apart in their chapters.

Blurb:

Baseball superstar Dante Lamonte is a broken man. Reeling from the horrific double murder that took the lives of his pregnant fiancée as well as his best friend, he drowns in alcohol and sex, but never finds relief.

Becca Hernandez is a sweet girl with terrible luck with men—and worse luck with sex. Her one-night stand with a man who is way out of her league was also totally out of her character. Dante took her out of her comfort zone… she loved everything he did to her, but she knows nothing can come of it.

When their paths cross again, they can’t resist each other. One night of passion turns into much more, but they struggle to get through the bases of this new relationship. Dante’s demons may destroy him, and when details of their less than vanilla night are leaked to the press, Becca stands to lose everything—her job, her reputation and Dante. Love may be their only salvation.

THIS IS A STANDALONE.

Blurb:

Two men.
One threesome.
Zero expectations.

Jamie Teller has had a rough year. After being blackmailed by a teammate, weathering a sex scandal, and being traded to a team on the other side of the continent, he’s overwhelmed and looking for a distraction. A sexy threesome with his burly roommate and his wife wasn’t expected–neither is his sudden attraction to a guy.

Viggo Sjoberg has been openly bisexual since he was 17, but always assumed he would settle down with a woman. When he’s surprised with news he has a child from a past fling, he jumps headfirst into marriage and fatherhood, but his new wife isn’t what she appeared to be. Adding to Viggo’s confusion are the feelings aroused by his seemingly straight roommate, Jamie.

When Jamie moves thousands of miles away, Viggo tells himself it’s over. Until a life-changing event puts the two men on a collision course. Suddenly, Jamie needs Viggo—badly—and Viggo is prepared to do whatever it takes to help. Even if it means he has to give up everything he always thought he wanted.

About the Author:

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.

Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.

Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

REVIEW:

This book really started out with a bang, so that gave me high hopes.  Dante was coming off of losing his best friend, his fiancée and his unborn son, he was in a dark place.
Becca was naïve and busy with her demanding career but couldn’t get her one night with Dante out of her mind.
6 months after their night together then meet up at a Christmas party and the sparks fly (again, but I wish we saw their first time)…but had different ideas of why they hadn’t seen each other/talked to each other since.  It was nice seeing a little bit of drama.
There is lots of sex, and BDSM in it.  Becca wants to try all sorts of things so of course Dante is more then willing to help out.  You can always tell how much they are attracted and care about the other which is always nice to see.
My problem comes where I don’t buy that she is THAT naïve and she comes across often times as selfish. I just had a hard time relating to her character, PLUS, I thought this was a sports romance but we didn’t get much of the sports.

** ADULT CONTENT WARNING **
We
don’t have a thing in common, and yet here I sit, turning my car around after
she begged me to please take her to the Starbucks we just passed. What the hell is wrong with me? I
have no clue what it is about her that has me tied up in knots I can’t slip out
of. If I don’t tone my shit down now, she’ll be pulling me along from the rope
attached to my dick.
“Welcome
to Starbucks, may I take your order?”
“Get
your ass over here and tell her what you want,” I instruct.
“Quit
being so bossy.” I’m about ready to show her how bossy I can be when she
unfastens her seatbelt, hangs half her body over the bench seat with her palms
planted on the leather console, and gives me a view of her tits.
Fuck
me. Her cleavage is spilling out of her black lace bra. Her fucking tits are
perfect, and if I have anything to say about it, it won’t be long before they
are in my mouth and my dick is sliding in between them. My cum would make the
perfect fucking necklace right under her face.
“Um.
You can pull up now,” she says, eyeing me with her tell-all eyes. She knew
exactly what I was doing, and she instigated it.
I
am so fucked when her luscious lips quirk up into a devious smile. Damn her.
“You
pull a stunt like that again, and I won’t hesitate to rip that shirt off of
you.”
“I’d
like to see you try,” she challenges.
I
don’t reply, not until I pull up and pay the lady who shakily takes the money
out of my hand without looking at me.
Caitlin
starts laughing her cute little ass off when I hand her coffee and tuck the
change in my pocket.
“What
the fuck you laughing at now?”
“You.
That lady heard everything you said. I’m sure of it.”
“I
don’t give a shit. What I do give a shit about is you flashing me your tits.
You keep that shit up, and I’m skipping Target. Taking you to my place and
cuffing you to my bed. I’ll fuck those giggles right out of you and won’t stop
until you’re raw and passed out. Now, drink that shit.”
Hollywood
clutches the cup of coffee in one hand while the other stays planted on the
leather bench seat. Her tongue darts out licking her bottom lip. She’s fucking
feeling me as much as I am her. We both want to fucking ravage each other, that
much is clear. It’s fucked up and a mystery that I can’t even start to solve.
Her
bottom lip is glistening with the wetness of her mouth. Yeah. I’m fucking that,
too. I suddenly have a powerful urge to taste her, but hell if I’ll reward her
fucking little stunt. I run the pad of my thumb along her bottom lip, soaking
up her taste. Caitlin freezes at my touch. Her breath hitches. She stares at me,
waiting for my next move. Slowly and without breaking eye contact, I bring my
thumb to my mouth and taste her.
It’s
gut instinct when my eyes close and I fight to keep in a moan. The sweetest of
sweet tastes glides over my taste buds. Big mistake. I lean down and finally
open my eyes with my forearm brushing up against her tits and whisper over her
lips.
“Remember
my fucking promise.” I pause for a beat. “Because it will happen.”
I
sit back down in the driver’s seat not looking back over to the woman who has
my dick straining painfully against my zipper. The thought of one layer between
us doesn’t help fucking matters, so I focus on the road ahead.
Caitlin
sits quietly in her seat on the short drive. She sips her coffee, and I’d bet a
fucking ton of money she’s wet as hell, dying for some friction between her
long fucking legs. Again, not one thought helps my hard dick calm down.
I
kill the engine and go to step out of the car.
“Money.”
Caitlin looks over to me. “ I need money.”
“Get
the fuck out, Hollywood.”
When
she listens and doesn’t resort to her arguing, I know I have her strung taut
with the need to be fucked properly. Guarantee the stuffy suits have never
taken this woman the way I will.

REVIEW:

This book has a little of everything, what are you looking for:
suspense: CHECK
Romance: CHECK
Big, bad alpha: CHECK
Kick ass heroine: CHECK
steamy sex scenes: CHECK
This book would have been 5 stars except honestly there was 1 scene while he was out of town that I felt was not needed, especially since Caitlyn never found out about it.  I just felt it was over the top and honestly I wished he could have had some restraint.  Also, what does Caitlyn actually do after everything is over.  This cover really should be fixed, I do not like it at all!
But I loved Caitlyn and her not holding back, she spoke her mind, loudly often times.  No wonder she was an amazing defense lawyer.  Katch was instantly attracted to her smart mouth, and honestly who can blame him.
I am not big on smoking AT ALL, but at least they had it seem sexy and his release and was also a constant throughout the book.
But the suspense, there were some twists and turns I did not see coming, which is the best type of suspense book.  Throw in the hot romance and you have yourself a winner!  This was a book that I did not want to put down, it was that intense and enjoyable.

One chance encounter – that’s all it took.

Nikki Jennings is dancing her way into the big time. She has gone from a shy, small town girl to a New York City Ballet star. She had everything to offer the world and she was taking it by storm.

Chase Harding is a cocky jock that has always gotten exactly what he’s wanted. Most recently, the rookie spot on his dream hockey team. He has everything he could ever want until he meets Nikki. She won’t give him the time of day. He won’t take no for an answer.

Will Chase be able to score the v-card of his latest prospect or is he going to shoot and miss for the first time in his life?

EXCERPT

I saw her and my world stopped dead in an instant. Everything around me faded to black as I got lost in her from afar.

She was sitting alone in the corner of the coffee shop, biting her lower lip as she read from the yellowing pages of a book with a broken spine and a tattered cover. Her face was soft and full of anticipation as the pages flipped by, and I craved to know what part she was on as she read from my favorite book.

I was hooked.

I was mesmerized.

She was mine. Already.She just doesn’t know it yet.

And I didn’t even know her name.

A minor detail.

“Chase?” Hannah nudged my elbow from the opposite side of the table we occupied like we had every weekend for the last few weeks.

“Huh?” My eyes snapped to my sister as she stole me away from daydreaming about the gorgeous brunette I craved to know.

“Are you going to be able to go home for Thanksgiving?” she asked, frustration lacing her tone.

I shook my head. “Not with the schedule we have.” Our family was incredibly close and I knew it was going to break my mom’s and sister’s hearts that I wasn’t going to be able to make it home for the holidays this year, but that was part of the sacrifice I was going to have to make for my career.

My eyes continued to wander to the petite brunette. Her hair was long and it swept over her right shoulder. She was in black yoga pants and an oversized tank top cinched at her waste by a ridiculously adorable bright green fanny pack. I wondered if she had just gotten done at the gym or if she was just being comfortable on this lazy Sunday morning in the city.

My sister continued to steal my attention. “How has practice been?” Hannah was trying to keep the conversation moving and I was being a complete jerk, but I couldn’t pull away from the sheer beauty only paces away, which felt like a million miles.

I propped my head up with my hand so I could see my cute girl out of the corner of my eye while still kind of looking at Hannah. “We’ve only had a few practices but I am enjoying it and learning a lot.”

“That’s really exciting. I can’t believe my baby brother is a famous hockey star now.” She giggled a little as excitement perked the corners of her lips.

“I’m far from famous yet, sis. We’ll see what happens once the season actually starts.” I took the last sip of my black coffee, using the opportunity to catch my girl as she laughed to herself while she read. Her enjoyment was radiating sunshine as she devoured the novel.

“Whatever, you’re famous in my head. I brag about you all the time.” Hannah dramatically rolled her eyes at me before moving the conversation right along. “I had rounds with one of your teammates’ wives last night.”

I knew a lot about most of my teammates’ home lives, and none that I knew of had a wife that worked at Flushing. “Really? Who?” I asked, trying to sound more interested than I really was.

“This really sweet nurse named Karla. I obviously was bragging about you while we were in the breakroom grabbing coffee.”

I laughed. “That’s Brayden Cox’s girlfriend. They have a kid together, and they’re practically married.” I felt like a teenage girl gossiping about guys in Teen Bop, but if I could do it with anyone, it was Hannah.

Hannah shrugged. “So, yeah, his wifey. Wait, Cox? Isn’t that your all-time hero or something?”

My face got hot. “Yeah…yeah he really is. I used to wear his number in high school.”

“Well, isn’t that just the cutest thing ever.” Hannah’s pager started blaring and she shot up while checking the codes that were coming through. “Duty calls,” she huffed, throwing her purse over her shoulder.

I jumped up and pulled her in for a quick hug. “See you later, Hannah banana. Go save some lives.”

She squeezed my shoulder before turning to leave. “Bye Chase. Call me later so we can schedule another coffee date.”

My sister was great at making sure we spent time together when we could. I appreciated her wanting to hang out with me, but I was thankful in that moment to be able to focus on the adorable stranger—that was going to be rectified soon enough, soon she’d be so much more than a stranger.

Without overthinking it, I walked right over to the fading brown loveseat my girl was cuddled up on. “One of us in this very room is in fact the murderer,” I half-whispered, taking a seat in the armchair across from her. I damned the coffee table between us—just one more obstacle I was going to have to overcome to get to her.

Her round smoky eyes smoldered as they connected with mine. Without missing a beat, she retorted with, “Oh, yes. I’ve no doubt in my own mind that we have been invited here by a madman—probably a dangerous homicidal lunatic.”

The way she giggled as the words left her lips was intoxicating. It was like cupid’s arrow had struck my heart. “I’m Chase.” I reached out my hand and she took it, and the simple touch sent fire through my body.

“Nicolette, but everyone calls me Nikki. Nice to meet you, Chase.” Her smile ripped across her face and crashed into my heart. “You’re a Christie fan, I take it?”

I leaned back in the chair, trying to look relaxed even though I craved to scoop her up into my arms and never let her go ever again. “You are holding my favorite book.” I reached into the duffle bag I had packed, ready for practice later on that afternoon, and pulled out my very own copy, which was being held together with scotch tape.

Her eyes softened a bit. “Isn’t it nice when a book recommends a person?”

About the Author:

I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams. I have a full time “day job” and by night I am an author. I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.

Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I’d like or just to shoot the, well you know.

A portion of all my royalties are donated to The Marcie Mazzola Foundation.

REVIEW:

Rookie hockey player meets ballet dancer…how can you not love that idea.  My favorite thing was what drew him to her in the first place.  BOOKS!  I love that she was reading his favorite book.  Being that we all love books, it I a sweet way to have a couple drawn together and not one you see often.  Insta-love, virgin romance…while novellas aren’t typically my favorite for the fact that I don’t love insta-love, this was a super cute story and a quick read.  You could sit down and just enjoy it without interruptions and no part of this book was somewhere you wanted to even put it down.  Just set aside the time since you will probably be like me and read it in one sitting.
