The best man.

inheritance and send my slime-ball cousins packing. Our plan is working perfectly.

Review

This was just what the doctor ordered. Having been in a bit of a book rut for a while now, I was looking for something to lure me back into this wonderful community (and hobby), and I’m so, so glad I stumbled across this.

I’ve read some of Monroe’s work on and off over the years, never really properly following her, but this gave me such a feel-good tingle that I’m absolutely tempted to go back and read the others in this series.

I loved the characterisation of Becca and Fitz, so clearly made for each other despite being from completely different worlds. Yes, it was a little far-fetched at times, but Monroe sucked me in, made me smile, made me laugh, and most of all made me enjoy this book so much that I read it in one sitting—something I haven’t done it what feels like forever.

If you’re looking for a light, feel-good romance that will leave you in a brilliant mood, this is the book for you.

Trixsters Anonymous by Ahren Sanders

Trixsters Anonymous EbookSassy, dramatic, hot-headed are just some of the words used to describe me since the time I was born. A few little mishaps growing up and my mom has a running ‘Emerson Baker’ prayer circle, and I have the reputation of a spit-fire that won’t go away.

I prefer the terms loyal, passionate, fiery, and possibly a bit impulsive.

So when my best friend proposes the concept of starting our own business, I jump on the idea.

CHEATERS BEWARE!

That should be our motto… because your secrets can’t stay hidden for long with Trixsters Anonymous on the case.

We are the moonlighting duo hell-bent on helping those who suspect their lovers are cheating. We’re professional, careful, and completely anonymous…What could possibly go wrong?

Walker Scott… that’s what goes wrong.

I never stood a chance against the gorgeous, hazel-eyed, fiercely determined man who storms into my life and completely blindsides me.

He’s the proof that opposites attract—and when they do, the chemistry is explosive.

Did I mention he’s also a detective? A very, very, talented detective?

Pretty soon being a Trixster is a lot more complicated.

Unfinished Business by Carina Adams

UnfinishedBusiness_mock1bThe Bastards of Boston live in a world most don’t understand. They follow their own rules, only accountable to each other, the innocents they protect, and the people they couldn’t save.

As president of the Bastards MC, Robert Doyle is the man behind it all. It’s his responsibility to keep his club safe, to be the smartest man in the room, and be ten steps ahead of everyone. He’d give everything he had, and sell his soul to the devil, to protect the ones he loves.

Until Rocker comes face-to-face with the pain he thought he’d buried. Old wounds are ripped open. Revenge consumes him. Once again he’s the teenager desperate to avenge his daughter’s murder and nothing else matters.

He calls me his angel, but the halo I wear caught fire a long time ago. There is no line I won’t cross, no law I won’t break. I’ll do whatever it takes to save him. If the road to hell is paved with good intentions, I’ll happily burn.

When past and present collide, we’re in for one hell of a bumpy ride.

The Brightest Sunset by Aly Martinez

The-Brightest-Sunset-For WebSticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.

Bullshit.

Words destroyed me.

“I’m sorry. She didn’t make it.”

“Daddy, he can’t breathe!”

“There’s nothing more we can do for your son.”

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.

Lies.

Those syllables and letters became my executioner. I told myself that, if I didn’t acknowledge the pain and the fear, they would have no power over me. But, as the years passed, the hate and the anger left behind began to control me.

Two words—that was all it took to plunge my life into darkness.

“He’s gone.”

In the end, it was four soft, silky words that gave me hope of another sunrise.

“Hi. I’m Charlotte Mills.”

Devil by Ker Dukey

devil ebookEvi Devil.

Yes, that’s really my name.

The irony is not lost on me.

I was created from two evil souls and have the name to prove it.

Devil worshipers, perverts, murderer. Is all terms used to describe the parents I refuse to remember. My mind won’t allow me to.

And why would I want to?

One born of dirty blood running through her veins can never truly be clean from its murky hue.

No matter what they try to tell me happened in my past, my mind denies me access, therefore how can I know it’s true?

How can I believe that’s what I’m born from?

Glimpses of my past haunt me, the screams of terror echo in the silent darkness of my memories, trying to remind me that my Mother went from room to room butchering our family.

I’ve learned from scars that I suffered abuse and that my Father and siblings weren’t my Mother’s only victims.

Hearing what they tell me.

Reading the words printed in the papers. None of it can prepare me for what’s to come.

My biggest lesson is learning that some memories we suppress for a reason.

Mr. Right Now by Lila Monroe

2e7f5474-d0d6-4aeb-b2b1-3faf0f576a13“I’m face-down in forty glorious inches of well-endowed cake, seriously reassessing my life choices, when suddenly I hear it. The voice that launched a thousand teenage boy-band dreams. My #1 crush, Drew Delaney himself.”

Ten years ago, Drew was boy-band royalty: the subject of a million teenage fantasies – and the guy next door. He was so far out of my league, I couldn’t see him for stars, but now I’m back in town for our high-school reunion, guess who I run into but Mr. Right-Now himself…

Older. Hotter. And still sexy enough to make me forget about the glittery white frosting currently smeared across my chest.

Sparks are flying, and so are my panties, and soon, our trip down memory lane has taken a detour to ‘oh my god, don’t stop!’. Population: me.

But can I turn Mr. Right-Now into Mr. Forever? Or will crazed fans, vicious yoga moms, and three dozen c#ck-sicles (don’t ask) doom our romance to the ‘Where are they now?’ section of MTV’s greatest hits?

You’ll be begging for a taste of Lila Monroe’s new sexy, laugh-out-loud summer romance!

REVIEW: Lovestruck by Lila Monroe

This is a short, easy rom-com, perfect for a sunny day in the garden and a bottle of cider. It’s the type of book you can consume in one sitting, quite happily.

But, in some ways, that’s not really enough for me any more. I couldn’t connect to the characters, and much as the sex scenes (and even a particularly anticipatory tango scene) were well-crafted and steamy, I just felt like I didn’t believe in the two being so close before the events of the novel. The history didn’t really permeate into the present relationship, which felt very much drawn from scratch.

Similarly, the plot felt a little clumsy to me, in a way that has far too many coincidental meetings and steeps into unrealism, and diminishing the comedy aspect of the novel. I only really smiled a few times, rather than the laugh-out-loud, tears-streaming-down-my-face Get Lucky.

A fun, easy read, but lacking in character development.

Bet Me by Lila Monroe

Series: standalone
Genre: romantic comedy

What happens when your sex strike goes viral — and suddenly every man in town has their eye on your prize? 

All I wanted was little old-fashioned romance. After a parade of Tinder disasters who think chivalry is giving me a pearl necklace on the first date, I made a pledge: until guys step up their game, this girl is off the market.

But one bottle of chardonnay later, and my drunken rant has gone viral. I’m the most famous person NOT having sex since the Jonas Brothers put on their purity rings. A men’s magazine has even put a bounty on my (ahem) maidenhead: fifty Gs to whoever makes me break the drought.

 Be careful what you wish for…

 Now my office looks like an explosion in a Hallmark factory, I’ve got guys lining up to sweep me off my feet – and the one man I want is most definitely off-limits. Jake Weston is a player through and through. He’s also the only one who sees through the mayhem to the real me, but how can I trust he’s not just out to claim the glory?

 And how will I make it through the strike without scratching the itch – especially when that itch looks so damn good out of his suit?

 The thrill of the chaste has never been so sexy in Lila Monroe’s hilarious, hot new romantic read!

What happens when you wake up in a hotel suite next to a gorgeous naked man with absolutely no memory of the past twelve hours?I guess it’s true what they say. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

Or at least I hope it stays here. The Romantic Style convention was meant to be a weekend of raucous fun with friends, sun, and enough poolside margaritas to forget about my ex. But now, instead of meeting my fans and signing books, I’m stuck with cocky divorce lawyer Nate Wexler. He’s arrogant, infuriating, and I can’t keep my hands off of him. Judging by the state of our hotel room, last night was wild. I just wish I could remember it.

A pair of matching tattoos. A cheap wedding veil. Half an empty box of glow in the dark condoms.

What the hell just happened?

REVIEW: Get Lucky – Lila Monroe

29905465Title: Get Lucky
Author: Lila Monroe
Series: standalone
Genre: romantic comedy
Rating: ****

Get Lucky is a really funny, really sweet and occasionally filthy romance. I read it in one sitting, and had more than a few proper laugh-out-loud moments. It was absolutely wonderful.

Curvy redheads were always one of my weaknesses. Even when they’re insulting me. 

Although Nate and Julia were brilliant in their bickering and sizzling chemistry, I have to say that the award to funniest book character of 2016 goes to Meredith. The filth that came out of that woman’s mouth was just something else.

Damn. I was maybe gonna masturbate to him later. That dream is dead now. 

I loved the nerdiness, I loved the chemistry, I really loved the characters, and I very much enjoyed a romance set over just 48 hours that so solidly cemented another fictional couple together.
