Ivy Hayes

Dating can be a rocky journey. Once the new shine wears off, you may end up with a case of buyer’s remorse.
That’s where I come in. I set the backdrop and coach you through the breakup.
Don’t want overblown drama, hard feelings, or a drink tossed in your face? Then I’m your fairy godmother, child.

Becket Jones

As an NFL quarterback, endorsement ads and the media pandering after me are all part of the game.
Ivy Hayes is the first woman who doesn’t care about my money and the notoriety that goes along with it.
But I’m a long-term guy, and she operates strictly in the now. Which means I need to bring my A-game.

Otherwise, I’ll end up getting ditched.

Review:

A swoon worthy book with laughs and even a few tears.

Becket really is the perfect book boyfriend and you can tell he is just a sweet genuine guy all around and him and his friends are such a great dynamic. Ivy has a terrible past and she has tried to get away from it. I love that she is smart, strong, successful and has done all of it with her foster sister by her side. Ivy is agaist love, she doesn’t think it is for her…but Becket will put up a good fight.

I cracked up when she didn’t know who he was when they first met…although you soon find out that is not actually their first meeting. One of my favorite things about them though is their love of “the word of the day”. It is such a fun idea to throw into a book and it shows that both have a lot of brains and not just looks and/or football talent.

I think Becket and Ivy are a perfect match…things snuck up on both of them, and we watch them go on this journey, especially Ivy of finding out what love does to a person. How they started out slowly and just talking and really we saw them build a solid foundation before sex even entered the picture…those are some of my favorite types of stories and this one is no exception. Told in dual POV is such a great way to see how their feelings have developed and how they both felt, even if it was not something one wanted to admit. I loved the drama thrown in and the twist that gave us.

5 perfect stars.

Our Last First Kiss by Christie Ridgway is a BRAND NEW STANDALONE romance and is NOW AVAILABLE! Welcome to Heartbreak Hotel!

Our Last First Kiss - Ebook

Add to your TBR ➤ http://bit.ly/2Cl5vov

OLFK_TEASER1

Welcome to the famed resort, The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach, where newlyweds come to honeymoon, where anniversary couples celebrate milestones, and where broken hearts find a place to heal.

After her best friend is jilted at the altar, maid of honor Lilly Durand whisks the bride to Dragonfly Beach and its legendary hotel, determined to help her overcome her misery. Lilly won’t admit it, but she’s hurting too. During the few days of pre-wedding festivities, a powerful attraction had grown between her and the handsome and confident best man, Alec Thatcher. Now she’ll never see him again, but she’s decided to consider that a good thing. This way her inconvenient crush can’t turn into something so dangerous as love. But then, to her dismay, she discovers Alec is just a room key away at what some call the Heartbreak Hotel.

Alec Thatcher doesn’t have the time or inclination for long-term romance. Serial dating has suited his confirmed-bachelor status just fine—until he meets Lilly Durand and his world turns on its axis. She claims to be as relationship-averse as he, but when the two of them are together he can’t recall his own reasons against commitment. Though Lilly touches his heart and soul, she’s as cautious as she is sexy. With a stubborn streak a mile long, Alec will have to exert all his powers of persuasion to give Lilly her last first kiss…

Review:

Two imperfect people, neither “thinking” they want a relationship. What happens when you are so drawn to someone that you begin to question what you thought you wanted. I love this story of Lilly and Alec. Lilly whisks her best friend a jilted bride, away to the Heartbreak Hotel. Of course she runs into Alec, and sparks burn up the pages. You may laugh out loud at parts, and some make you gasp and some you feel so sad and want to cry.

This is a book about finding yourself and going after what makes you happy. I loved seeing both Lilly and Alec grow throughout this story, watching their ideas change and grow and them realizing that sometimes LOVE is what makes you happiest and that they do deserve it. And I love that it took time for them to really get together and that through all of that we saw them building a friendship.

This author does a great job of drawing you into the story, you will love the main characters, the secondary characters and the hotel and guests and you will wish you could stay there and be a part of all of it. Overall it is a sweet and slightly steamy read that will leave you smiling by the end. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series!

Title: Craft

Series: The Gibson Boys #2

Author: Adriana Locke

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 14, 2018
Blurb
They’re not quite enemies. Not really friends.
More like frustrated balls of sexual tension and neither will give in.
               
Lance Gibson drives Mariah Malarkey absolutely
crazy. He uses her office like a phone booth, takes cupcakes from the corner of
her desk like she baked them just for him. She didn’t. Maybe she knew the
history teacher happened to love peanut butter icing, but that was purely a
coincidence. All sixteen times.
Mariah has a way of getting under Lance’s skin
too. She calls him out on his crap, spoils him even if inadvertently, and
seeing the librarian in skirts drives him wild. She won’t give in. It’s for the
best, really, considering there’s no way he could lie to a woman like that and
he’s not about to tell her the truth about himself. Not in a million years.
These two don’t hate each other. They don’t
really like each other. But for this to be a friends-to-lovers story, they have
to start somewhere, right?
Note: This can be read as a standalone novel.

Review
Lance and Mariah are so much fun to read about.  His love of driving her crazy is a win for us as readers.  Hilarious at time and yet moving and sweet…all of this even before we get a romantic connection.  Lance is very open about his sexual exploits and Mariah isn’t too happy about it all, and yet you can’t help your attraction to someone.  Lance, even if he won’t admit it out loud, has a thing for the fiery librarian.
Dynamite is a good way to describe this book.  You see the lit match and you are waiting for the explosion.  And it is definitely worth the wait.  I love some good banter and the author delivers that in spades here.  This book is just so much fun to read that if you are in a reading rut, this will get you out of it, I promise.
This is told in dual POV and it is so great to get inside the heads of both Landon and Mariah.  I love also his family, they are the best and this is an absolute standalone, but I do recommend reading, either before or after Crank cause you will love the Gibson boys.

The beer’s not the only thing getting tapped.
 
CALLIE
 
I have a secret. It’ll get me fired if my boss ever finds out…which shouldn’t be a problem except for one thing: my coworker, Reid Morgan.
 
He’s cocky, aggravating, and that hot-as-sin mouth simultaneously makes me want to slap him and melt into the mattress.
 
Now that he’s discovered my secret, he’s doing everything in his power to take my job.
 
REID
 
I have a problem: my pint-size spitfire of a coworker who’s primed to take my promotion.
 
She’s infuriating, sexy as hell, and I just can’t seem to keep my hands off her.
 
Now we’re both vying for the same position…and only one of us can come out on top.

Review
You know it is a good comedy when you are laughing on the very first page.  I love Callie so much and Reid I can love at times and others I want to punch him.  He becomes a jerk too often for me though, but I am glad that it wasn’t as easy to get Callie to forgive him.  This book was so easy to read, it was fun and light and kept you laughing and yet still had some good drama to keep you invested and interested.
This book is told in dual POV and it is so much fun.  I love their thoughts and their interactions with others.  Although I do think we get more with Reid and his friend then we do with Callie in that regard.  Overall, a very enjoyable book.

Break the Ice by Piper Rayne Blog Tour

SBPRBanner-BreakTheIce-BT

Break the Ice, an all-new standalone and the conclusion to the hilarious Bedroom Games series from bestselling authors Piper Rayne is LIVE!

PRBreaktheIceBookCover5x8_HIGH

The Winter Games are over, but the bedroom games are just beginning…

This is about the time I normally hang up my snowboard and chill for a while. Except this year. This year, I’m dealing with what fate dealt me at the Winter Games—nope, not gold. A broken leg.

Since I’m not close to my family, I head to my best friend, Skylar’s pad to recoup. Turns out having your gorgeous, single, sexy friend wait on you hand and foot can blur the lines between friendship and romance.

Which is exactly why I’ve decided to help her find a boyfriend.

Yeah, you heard me right. I’m going to help her comb through every dating app available until she finds the perfect man. What else could remind me of my place in her life more than watching her fall for someone else?

I can deal. I’m used to pushing through pain. I’m an Olympian after all.

Excerpt

“Sky.” I follow her down the hall and up the stairs. “You need…” I swallow down the bile burning my throat.

She turns around when she reaches her childhood bedroom door. The same room that has pictures of Ben on her corkboard from some dance way back when. The room that holds all her memories of a happy childhood filled with fun, laughter and love. Doesn’t she realize, she has so much?

“What?”

“You need a date.”

Did that really just come out of my mouth?

“A date?”

I grab her hand and take her into my room, which is really her brother’s childhood room, and sit her down on the bed.

“Yeah, give me your phone.”

She digs it out of her pocket and places it in my palm.

I search the app store and select a dating app.

“GeekMatch?”

“Yep.”

“What about the more traditional ones?” she asks, leaning over to look at my phone. Her hair tickles my neck, and the scent of her perfume makes my dick twitch in my pants.

“You need a beta, remember?”

“Hmm.”

I go through her selfies and select one that doesn’t show how truly gorgeous she is. It’s hard to find one though because Skylar doesn’t have any bad pictures.

“I’m not sure about this, Beck.”

I fill out her form for her while she remains silent. Once I’m done, I hand it back over to her and she stares at the screen for a long time.

Our thighs are pressed against one another and I’m fairly sure the electricity running through my body is buzzing through hers, but her gaze is still glued to her phone.

“Okay,” she says, still sounding reluctant.

“Perfect. Now, Terminator.”

She smiles and her lips brush my cheek. “Sorry, for being so needy.”

“It’s the hazard of having girl friends, I suppose.”

“Friends?”

“Friend,” I clarify, standing up before my hands and lips listen to the instructions from my dick.

“You’ll help me pick someone out?” she asks.

“Of course.”

She walks out of my room, her gaze glued to her phone. I follow with my gaze glued to her ass.

Review:

You can never go wrong with a Piper Rayne book and this one is no exception. An exceptional best friends to lovers romance. I felt like with the previous two books in the series you always knew there were feelings between Beckett and Skylar but you never really understood. (and while I said that I do feel this book can be a complete stand-alone).

Being on the same page is really Beckett and Skylar’s biggest issue and with the background/history you really do understand them both and why it has taken so long. But honestly it happened when it was meant to.

It is an overall quick read and while we get some heavier topics overall this is a fun read that will leave you with a huge smile on your face. Told in dual POV you really understand both of them and even get to know them through the interactions in the opposite POV. Amazing job getting into these characters heads and making us really feel and understand them.

Review
If you love a good slow burn this is definitely a book for you.  Both Spencer and Abby think they are out of the league of the other and both think the other is also friend-zoning them.  We get so many great friendship moments between them and with the dual POV you do see how both of their feelings go beyond that.
I love Abby’s family and her best friend Sam.  I would be friends with Sam and they are so fun together and she really knows Abby in a way that we don’t get with her brothers.  Spencer seems to fit right in with everyone and I love how comfortable he felt right from the beginning.
I do love a good slow burn but honestly at times I felt it was really dragging and we were just having the same thing over and over.  But yet, the end result is so worth the wait.  And both characters were very likeable so that added to my enjoyment as well.
