Consequences be damned.

“You’re trouble, Jailbait–a pageant princess with a crooked crown and leather jacket.”

-Maliki

Not my first read by author, I would pretty much read anything by her! And a fun rom-com was exactly what I needed with this!

The way Sierra met Maliki was priceless, talk about a under-age drinking fail! Maliki is one of the sexiest bartenders, and the way Sierra and him keep meeting is pretty funny got years…but their friendship through out the years only gets stronger. But things get more complicated when feelings from both get involved just not to one another. The chemistry is sizzling but they just keep missing it, until THE INCIDENT and you will be left questioning if Maliki will be the one be there for her finally? PLOT TWIST! and I mean you’ll not be ready for it ever, I had to stop reading for a second…

I don’t want to say too much because things go super crazy from here on, in a good way yes. But i was on my toes thinking WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN. I honestly LOVED the hero and heroine. The way they are with one another is just so romantic and beautiful I can’t describe it. It’s an interesting turn of events to find out how this FRIENDS to LOVERS becomes!

R E V I E W ➠ Wylde Fire by Sarah Robinson

2019 ARCs, Marriage Of Convenience, Rich/Poor Romance, Rom-Com, September 2019 Review, Sizzling


GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Sam Wylde is ready to prove he’s more than just the privileged son of a wealthy Southern dynasty.
Wyldefire Whiskey is poised to take Nashville by stormβ€”and with any luck, overshadow the scandal of his cheating ex-girlfriend marrying his brother. The only problem? This gruff country boy has no idea how to throw a launch party that will get people talking.
The answer to everything might just be Holly Glen.
A party wrapped up in one tiny woman, Holly is tattooed, tempting, and exactly the event planner Sam needs to liven up his brandβ€”and his life. He can give her what she needs, too.
All it will take is a ring on her finger.
Falling in real love with his fake wife was not part of the planβ€”but one shot of Holly isn’t going to be enough.

He needed to kiss her. Every part of his whiskey-filled brain begged for it, and yet, something kept him from moving farther.

-Sam

STEVE

“You’re quite convincing.” Sam chuckled. “It’s a gift.”
“Your tongue certainly is.” Holly winked.

Not my first read by author & heck the blurb alone caught my eye and then you have that sexy cover too!

What an interesting BOOM to this book. Starts off with the best meet between Holly and Sam that leads to an amazing opportunity for Holly which leads to the craziest yet most efficient by Sam. This really kicks of with a bang and continues on through out the story. Holly has had a crush on Sam since high school and Sam is trying to figure out if he’s truly over the fact that his brother and ex-girlfriend are getting married….so all the crazy ideas come out. From the both of them.

Characters
Sam: tall dark and handsome, hard worker, cowboy, sex in a suit, very smart and bossy.
Holly: quirky in the best ways, bold, smart, fun and gorgeous!

This is rather a fast pace happening, in a good way that is. Sam and Holly kind of play around with one another but don’t deny their feelings, questions yet but deny, noooo that’s why the sexy scenes are sizzling steamy! But old wounds never really heel and when an incident re-opens that for Sam, will he be able to look past the hurt and realize what REALLY happened?

This is definitely a fun and exciting read, something new-ish for me and I rather enjoyed it very much. The way the hero and heroine were, their chemistry off the charts and behavior to one another, loved it!! The hero is an interesting one because he is a little country with all the sexiness from it and very much a sexy suit as well, great combo if you ask me! Will look forward to more from author and this series!

R E V I E W ➠ Hate The Game by Holly Hall

2019 ARCs, Friends-To-Lovers, Rom-Com, September 2019 Review, Slow Burn


GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

My official title: Relationship Consultant. A modern-day, one-sided matchmaker. When I approach relationships like a formula, it’s simple really. If only I had the same success in my personal life.
My gorgeous neighbor turns me into a fumbling mess, and I don’t exactly match the leggy, model-types I’ve seen him with. Despite the fact that we’re total opposites, our chemistry is almost hot enough to convince me to give the dating game another shot. (Not to mention, it’s totally off-brand to be a relationship skeptic.) 
What could it hurt to practice what I preach? After all, Theo Hartley would be a fun specimen to practice with. And if things go southβ€”which is my luckβ€”I just have to remember what I tell my clients: 
don’t hate the player…

RELEASE DATE: September 12, 2019

Not my first read by author and I must say that the BLURB got me hooked on this and so I was excited when I was able to get the ARC! What I like most about this author is the writing because when reading, everything just comes natural and smooth. The transitions flow and everything goes well together! This was one of those books!

After a horrible break-up Theo moves back to Chicago, this will be his new beginning. What’s not to love, he is successful owning his own gym and things seem to just go for him finally. Until he realizes who his neighbor is and how they met. I will have to give it to him, he is BEYOND SWOON WORTHY and dreamy!! But with his past, he is not sure if he will be ever able to move on or start fresh.

Ava is a quirky, shy and out spoken, whatever she thinks she says. Loved that about her. She developed a friendship with Theo even after how they met, and so begins the slow-burn of that blurred line, to jump or not to jump. There are adventures, fun, laughter, of course little bit of danger and pain too…but all wrapped up in a cute romantic way. I really enjoyed them together and like I said, the story just flowed well!

R E V I E W ➠ Instant Gratification by Lauren Blakely

2019 ARCs, August 2019 Review, Brother's Best Friend, Friends-To-Lovers, Rom-Com, Slow Burn


GOODREADS – AMAZON – AUTHOR WEBSITE

I need a fake date. She needs my late-night expertise. Now, if we can just keep our hands off each other…
As the premier best-man-for hire in all of Manhattan, I promise discretion, so when I need a plus one for a couple of β€œI dos,” I turn to my gorgeous, clever, witty best friend’s sister. She’s my good friend, too, and I lust after her completely. I mean, I TRUST her completely.
After all, just look how she’s kept her lips sealed about the hot, multi-O night we spent together. Yes, just look at those sexy lips.
In any case, we only fell off the wagon once, and it was months ago. I’m sure we can make it through these weddings without banging each other in the limo.
Or can we?

He’s too charming, too amusing, too easy to be with. He’s like a bag of popcorn. Have you ever tried to eat just one handful of popcorn?

-Truly

LOOK AT THIS BEAUTIFUL FULL COVER!

Not my first read or review by this author, I actually have read quiet a lot of her books and have quiet a lot of the paperbacks too!!

Jason is Malone’s best friend who also friend’s with Truly who is Malone’s little sister. Malone is from Satisfaction Guaranteed book. Jason and Truly shared a hot steamy night months ago. Truly keeps her lips sealed all while Jason couldn’t stop his mind of thinking about her. So basically NOW they are around one another, except only in the FRIEND ZONE. When they both need each other’s help, they can’t deny it anymore and the chemistry and sizzling between them get’s too much to bare, so what’s a girl to do? GIVE IN! Hello JASON IS MEGA UBER SEXY!! What’s funny is that they both try their hardest to just keep it at that,
some steamy nights and blah blah…NEVER WORKS and for them not only does it not work
but it get’s and is MORE complicated then ever.

My take on this was, it’s light, flirty, sexy and fun but with a lot of depth! I loved each characters, but if I had to chose it would be Truly. For what she does, has been through and want’s to be…it’s beautiful to see her blossom and take charge. [not in all forms] All in all, I love Lauren’s books because they are never the same and always fun to read, keeps you captivated and interested!
