I have ……days to find a wife.

Claiming any woman is not a problem if you have deep pockets
My parents want me to be married,
And this time it’s an ultimatum.
With both the royal line and my freedom at stake,
I don’t have a choice but to find the ‘right kinda girl.’
Someone who is okay to put up this pretence.
Someone who doesn’t object to my playboy lifestyle.

And then I meet Adrianna
A sassy as hell free-spirited stripper.
One casual hit leads to
An indecent proposal for a fake marriage turning my world upside down
And I plant my seed inside her.

Alright, it was an accident, but what now!
My dilemma: Is she really the ‘right kinda girl.’ The kind I want to spend the rest of my life with.

With love, betrayal, sex, and power, this book will take you for a ride through a modern-day adult fairy tale.

MY REVIEW

Another great read by Mia Ford.  I am becoming a huge fan of hers.  Every book 📚 I read of hers draws me in.  She has a wonderful way of writing.  This book was an amazing adventure.  This was a true romance.  A tale of selfishness, greed, sacrifice, forgiveness and love. ❤️💕  A fairytale of sorts, where happy endings have to be earned not handed to you on a silver platter.  The authors took the time to develop the characters and create a world that draws you in and captivates you.  You have no choice but to keep turning those pages.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good Cinderella story.  Poor girl meets her Prince Charming 🤴🏻.  Oh and let’s not forget the hot sexual chemistry between Prince Milos and his Adriana.  That Prince is one hot man!

5-Star-Rating

Review | A-List Temptation

36246822A-List Temptation (Bad Boys of Hollywood)

by April Fire (Goodreads Author)Mayhem Cover Creations (Illustrator)
 0.0  ·  Rating details ·  Ratings  ·  Reviews

Can true love exist between Hollywood royalty and a below-the-line nobody?
Hollywood makeup artist Dina Jacobs desperately needs an escape from the LA hustle, with its flimsy relationships, constant back-stabbing, and endless ladder climbing. She hopes taking a job on an indie-shoot halfway across the country might be just what she needs. The slow, small-town pace of lovely Devina would be perfect, except for one thing – the director of the this little indie project is none other than A-list actor, and prolific Lothario – Will Derry.
Forced to work closely with a man she’s had a fantasy crush on for years, Dina soon realizes that there’s more to the Hollywood icon than just his looks and bad-boy reputation. To her shock the celebrity bachelor seems to be more focused on her than he does the work in front of him and his camera. Will’s attentions soon intensify, as he becomes more distracted by his new crush.
Sensing jealous glares from the cast and crew, and not wanting to have her career marred with a reputation as a trouble-maker, Dina is forced to brush off Will’s advances, despite her yearning for a more intimate escalation of their relationship.
Can Dina resist Will’s growing advances, or will she risk the chance that she might just be another A-lister’s romantic conquest?

My Review

Oh Wow!  Great book!

What would you do if  your Hollywood teenage crush made the moves on you?  Well that is exactly what happened to Dina in this book.  Will Derry, Hollywood’s Playboy heart-throb actor tries his hand at directing.  Will is tired of the acting scene.  The parties the women and the fake smiles.  He decides that he wants to direct a film and take a break from the acting.  What he does not expect is to be hit with feelings when he comes face to face with Dina.  Feelings he has never had before.  How does he deal with this when she runs away every chance she gets.

Dina did not expect Will to put the moves on her.  That is exactly what he did though and she can’t help but think that she will be another notch on his post.  So what does she do?  She runs.  She is terrified of the feelings this man causes.  But  she has to be strong and deny it, otherwise she will have her heart-broken.

I really enjoyed the layout of this story and how it flowed.  It was a steady paced read with enjoyable main characters.  It does not really focus much on other characters though.  I would have liked to have seen more on that front.  The chemistry between these two is electric.  I enjoyed the push and pull of the story.   It had me hooked and I had to keep reading to see if it would be a happy ending or not.

This is the first book by April Fire that I have read and I did enjoy it.   So much so that I will check out more books by her.  I recommend this book for a cozy read.  But be warned  it will have you hot and bothered before it is over.

The story that started with PERFECT SENSE continues…

Cash Brooks held a secret from Quinn that destroyed any chance they had at a happy ending.

Everything she believed their relationship to be was a lie.

Quinn left heartbroken for Harvard, unable to stop loving him even though she knew his past ruined any chance they had at a future.

Now, she’s in Boston completing her MBA and learning to move on without the only man she ever loved. Starting over isn’t easy… especially when an unlikely circumstance pulls her into Cash’s world once again. The truth will come out, hearts will be broken, and Cash will have to battle the mistakes from his past and fight for a second chance to be with the woman he loves.

Their love isn’t perfect, but will it be enough for Quinn to learn to trust him again? Or will the burden and mistakes from his past keep them apart forever?

MY REVIEW

OMG!!!  I loved this book even more than the first one Perfect Sense.  This story was wonderful.  I loved how everything comes together and unwraps.  Quinn and Cash really do overcome the odds that are against them.  It was a great ending to the first book.

The first book Perfect Sense left off  with Quinn leaving Cash in the airport with a parting shot of “Your dead to me.”  and goes to Boston.  She is broken and has nothing else to do but to put the pieces back together one at a time.  So that she does.  She attends her classes at Harvard and makes some new friends and starts to move on with Aiden.  But she truly never gets over Cash.

When an accident sends Cash to the hospital and Quinn as his emergency contact is forced to face him again, she is conflicted more now than ever.  But can he be forgiven.  Cash hides so many secrets and that is what tore them apart in the first place.  Will they be able to fix things?

This book is such an emotional read.  Cash really has some huge demons to battle.  Quinn is so vulnerable and hurt.  She really is such a strong woman  dealing with Cash’s demons, when she has some of her own.  I love the chemistry between them from the start, even though I thought of Cash as a total asshole.  His ego was the size of Texas.  He really did disgust me.  But wow how he overcomes the odds.

I loved Amanda’s layout and how she had the story flowing flawlessly.  She gradually builds things back up with the characters and doesn’t just throw them back together.  She took her time telling their story and developing them as characters.  She even throws in a big twist that will have you going OMG! No that can’t happen.  She will have you mad, laughing and crying simultaneously.  A wonderful story of love, guilt and hate.  I highly recommend this book.  Be sure to read Perfect Sense first or you will be lost.

(InnocenceForSale.com #2)

by Ada Scott (Goodreads Author)

He Wants To Use Me For Revenge, I Just Want Him To Use Me.

Bree

I wish my mom never dragged me along when she ran off with her junkie boyfriend Antonio. The worst thing about it was she was having an affair and they took fifty million dollars of Andrew’s money when they went.

Now he’s got fifty million reasons to want us all dead and, after years of life on the run, I can’t take any more of their abuse, so I’ve *got* to get out of here… somehow.

Andrew

It couldn’t have been any more poetic when I saw Bree auctioning her first time on Innocence For Sale.

After years of searching for my revenge, it fell right into my lap. Mouth-first. I’ll take everything she’s selling, and more. She’ll moan my name, she’ll tell me where Julia, Antonio and my money are.

I knew all that. I didn’t expect to find an accomplice, my other half, the only woman who ever made me want to grind out our pleasure non-stop until we can’t see straight.

Just when I think I’m going to drive off into the sunset with my dream girl, it looks like we’re going to have to make a last stand instead…

My Review

Ok! Not what I was expecting.  This book is defiantly out of the norm for virgin sex books.  In this book Bree is stuck with her mother and loser boyfriend.  They are running from the mob because Antonio, moms bo, stole 50 million dollars from Bree’s stepfather Andrew.  Antonio is a piece of work.  He beats on Bree and they all live in a dirty roach infested home.  Bree wants out and bad, so she puts her virginity up for sale on Innocenceforsale.com.

Andrew is pissed.  His wife took off and left him with one of his crew.  Not only that but she stole his money.  All Andrew wants is revenge.  So when he logs in to the Innocnceforsale.com looking for a virgin to sleep with he sees Bree.  His missing stepdaughter has her virginity up for sale.  Hmmmm…then the plan forms.

This book was a quick read and had a very different approach than I was expecting.  The story seemed a little short, but very intriguing.  It is full of action and thrills.  Which I love!  It captivates you, drawing you in and holding you tight.  The characters were interesting and intense.  I am still on the fence about the step father going after the virginity of the step daughter.  The book doesn’t really go into the ages of the characters, so it was hard to imagine the scenario.  Overall I say this book was good.

Another Innocenceforsale.com novel

 

Review | First Time Lovers

She’s so bad…
Tall, tatted, and tempting—that’s what Max Dornan was.
And she had a bad attitude.
So why is it I can’t stop thinking about her?
About that long silky black hair and those long legs wrapped around me?
I’m a CEO, a billionaire, and a twin. A real nice guy, or so they tell me.
Yet when it comes to Max all I want to be, is bad.

…He’s good
People see my tattoos, my surly attitude and they think they know me.
Just like the suit—Brooks is his name.
He’s tall, dark, and handsome. And he needs my help.
When I agreed to help him out temporarily, I didn’t expect to like him.
I didn’t expect to end up in his bed.
And I never expected to fall for him.

We were all wrong for each other, the bad girl and the good guy. But somehow together, we were pretty damn perfect.

My Review

This is the first book by Kylie that I have read and I must say it was rather interesting.  The book has a great plot but the characters were lacking development in some areas.  I found the main character Max very stubborn and overly sensitive.  There are hints to why she is this way but the story is missing the gap that really develops her and lets you know why.  Brooks is a strong and sexy character.  He often lets his mouth run faster than his brain.  But I truly loved his character.  The book is interesting but could have been longer and more in-depth.  It had so much potential to make a longer novel.  Overall the book is good and entertaining.
