My Review

Ohhhh just in time to start the holidays off right with a sizzling hot Christmas theme story. It’s a hot one!

Amber still remembers the guy who stole her heart in college.  She has never really gotten over him.  When Christmas rolls around her brother comes home from New York for the holidays.  He brought his best friend and business partner along.  Oh great she has to play nice and meet his friend, most likely a loser like all his friends.  Ha!  She did not expect to walk in the hall to meet her brother’s partner and find the man who stole her heart her freshman year of college.

Tyler hates the holidays.  He has had no family since the day he left his drug addict parents behind and went to college to escape.   Luke and Tyler are in LA looking to expand their business adventure.  Since they are in LA Luke has talked Tyler into spending the holidays with his family.  Tyler really does not want to meet his family and have to answer questions about his path.  But since Luke is his best friend he reluctantly agrees.  What Tyler did not expect was to find Amber standing in the hallway of his best friends parents home.  WTF???  Amber is Luke’s little sister.  This can’t be.

As the holidays close in and Amber and Tyler gravitate to each other, they finally give in and sleep together.  Now everything is falling apart.  When Luke gets upset he threatens Amber.  Now Amber has to decide.  Leave the only man that has her heart or lose everything and everyone important in her life?

Amy Brent has done it again.  Another wonderful read.  This was such a good book.  It was steady paced and exciting.  A great way to start off the Christmas holidays with a hot ass man and stubborn ass girl.  Together these two characters will set the pages on fire.

This book will have you mad and happy all at once.  The sex will have you wet and begging for more.  I guarantee you will have a hard time putting this book down.  I was rooting for Tyler and Amber.  So exciting watching their story unfold.  I was so excited to see if this book had that Christmas Happily Ever After ending.  So grab the book and a glass of wine and get ready for the ride of your life.

Love Against the Odds | Cover Reveal

Love Against the Odds Boxset
Inger Iversen
Publication date: November 30th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Against all odds, love prevails.

Love Against the Odds Volume one includes two previously published bestselling novels: Rogue in Love and Open Wounds. This volume features the men of Trent’s Body Shop each story is a standalone with a HEA.

Rogue in Love:

Ten years ago, Lex was forced to skip town, giving up everything he’d ever known. But even his time in solitude couldn’t keep away the memory of the girl he’d left behind. The girl who’d offered him her innocence, and her heart.

Thea had moved on from the boy who abandoned her. Good job, fiancé, comfortable life in New York … until everything is ripped away from her, leaving her to pick up the pieces alone.

When the care of an ailing loved one brings them back to Blackwater, Lex and Thea are confronted by the pains of the past. For Lex, that means helping to heal the broken-hearted woman he left behind. For Thea, it means refusing to let him see the gaping hole his absence created.

The old feelings still linger, but only they can decide to relight the sparks, no matter the secrets and heartaches that come with them.

Open Wounds:

If you could see your life from inception to your death, would you change things or would you let your death play out as fate intended?

Abel is in search of only two things. A stable job and a safe place to lay his head at night after a mistake that cost him eighteen months of his life. As if fate had plans made only for him, Abel is offered a complicated job, and a chance to redeem himself to his old boss, from an old friend. And then he meets her…

And soon, Abel finds himself adding another item to his list—Hope.

At only twenty-six, Hope has only ever slept with one man, and at her boss’s unsolicited advice, Hope plans to forget the abuse and degradation she suffered at her ex’s hand by seducing and bedding the next man she meets. Only, after Hope finds a promise of death at her doorstep, her plans are derailed and only chance at staying alive rests on the dedication of her new bodyguard and her own sheer will to live the life she deserves.

**Includes a bonus copy of Inevitable: Love and War.

Culinary arts student, Hope Mastriano, is down on her luck. Homeless on Thanksgiving Day, she’s caught trying to break into her cousin’s apartment by her sexy boss and lifelong secret crush.

Since getting dumped seven months ago, head chef Vinnie DiFrancesco has been in a frustrating holding pattern. He returns relaxed from a retreat, but his life is sent into a tailspin when he offers Hope, the event coordinator at his family’s trattoria, temporary housing.

With the trattoria’s traditional Italian Christmas Eve charity dinner slated to be featured on a local TV segment and things heating up in his apartment, the two must set aside their different visions to make the event a success. When a computer glitch threatens their plans, Hope proposes a risky solution. Vinnie must believe in Hope and his heart in order to secure the future of the restaurant and make it a Christmas to remember.

EXCERPT:

He jogged up the stairs to the fifth floor. Turning into the main hall, Vinnie made his way toward his apartment while digging in his pocket for the key and almost collided with three suitcases and a stack of boxes blocking his path.

Someone was moving out…or in, given the person was fiddling with the lock—with a hanger. He had moved in a couple days before his trip to California and hadn’t met any neighbors, but he did recall seeing a tall blonde woman walking out of this apartment one morning as he came in from his morning jog. This one was a few inches over five feet, and although he couldn’t see much, dark hair peeked out of the white knit cap on her head.

“Hey, can I help you?” he called.

She shrieked and dropped the hanger. “I can’t find my key and locked myself out.”

He knew that voice. “If that’s the case, why don’t you call the super?”

“My phone’s dead, and I don’t have his number.”

Vinnie pulled out his phone. “Then it’s a good thing I have it. I’ll give him a buzz.”

“No!” she cried and turned to face him.

Wide brown eyes framed by long brown lashes stared up at him.

“Hope?”

She pushed back the cap and brushed aside the bangs that fell into her eyes. “Vinnie. Funny meeting you here.”

“Same goes. You don’t live here,” Vinnie countered, surprised to be faced with one of the pantry chefs from where he worked.

Hope raised her hands. “I know how this looks, but I can explain.”

“You can explain why you’re trying to break into this apartment?”

“It’s my cousin Faith’s place. And I wasn’t breaking in.”

Vinnie raised an eyebrow and shifted his gaze to the hanger on the ground.

“Okay, so maybe it seems as though I was breaking in, but the key she gave me no longer works.” She reached in her coat pocket and withdrew a key similar to Vinnie’s.

“Did you try calling your cousin?”

“Gee, no, I didn’t think of that,” she sneered. “She’s on a cruise and then staying in Florida a few days for business. I wasn’t kidding about my phone dying and not knowing the super’s number.”

Vinnie felt a pain in his temple. Probably from not having enough to eat or drink on the red-eye from LA. “Fine, let’s get your stuff in my place. You can use my phone.”

Hope grabbed a handle of a suitcase. “Thanks, Vin. You’re nicer than people at work say.”

He paused while unlocking his door. Well, hell. Is that what they say about me? Guess he needed to do damage control with his staff. Even though his parents owned Trattoria DiFrancesco, Vinnie was the head chef and in charge of hiring of anyone who worked in the kitchen.

Including the pretty spitfire who had just swept past him, Hope Mastriano.

He hoisted the stack of boxes and followed her inside. When she headed back out, he perused the hall to see how much more stuff she had.

There were two more suitcases and a pet carrier.

“You run away or something?” Vinnie asked.

“Moved out of Steve’s place. I’m done with that deadbeat.”

“On Thanksgiving Day and with nowhere to go?”

“It’s been long overdue. Besides, I thought I could crash at Faith’s until I figured out my next step.”

“And in there?” He nodded to the carrier.

Hope raised it up a few inches. “This is Lucky, my cat.”

Vinnie was not a fan of cats, with their sharp eyes and sneaky ways. He peeked inside and into the green eyes of a white cat. He closed the front door and stepped around Hope’s stuff, including the cat, which she pulled out of the carrier. Lucky leaned forward and sniffed him before letting out a soft mew.

Between the pixie-haired cutie and the cat, the peace and relaxation he had found out west was a distant memory. By the time he got to the trattoria for Thanksgiving dinner, Vinnie was going to need a beer or glass of wine.

Possibly both.

by Ruby Steele (Goodreads Author)Virginia Sexton (Goodreads Author)
 4.71  ·   Rating details ·  58 Ratings  ·  55 Reviews
I’m the Crown Prince of Scandal
I’ve been told to stay away from her
Well, that’s not happening…
The world knows me as the royal playboy
But this time, I’m playing for keeps

All the things you’ve read about me in the tabloids?
They’re probably true.

Trouble didn’t find me, I went looking for it.

I lived for the next woman, the next fight, the next party.

Until it all caught up with me.

These days?

I’m on lockdown in my own f*cking palace, under decree from the Royal Council to stay out of trouble.

If I want to become the next King, I have to clean up my act.
Which means no more media scandals and no more women.

Fine, whatever it takes. I’m on my best behavior.

Until she arrives. 

My best friend’s younger sister.

All. Grown. Up.

With a sexy, sweet smile and womanly curves for days.

She’s here for the royal festival, and she’s being courted for marriage.

I’m definitely not on the list of approved suitors.

But I like breaking the rules, and I’m ready for a tasty diversion.

She looks absolutely delicious waltzing back into my palace…

I bet she’ll look even better in my bed.

Get ready to melt your e-reader with this steamy, full-length novel featuring a bad boy lady killer Prince and a smart, sassy heroine who brings him to his knees. Royal Tryst has a splash of intrigue, no cliffhangers, no cheating, and a guaranteed happy ending.

Ohh what a great read of lies and deception. I love a good book with so much evilness for the prince to overcome and save the princess.

Seraphina is being forced to marry to save her family’s wealth and livelihood. Her parents don’t want her to sacrifice and marry, but it is out of their control when a 400 year old agreement between families has tied their hands.

Prince Parker has been a playboy and nuisance for too long. He has been forced by the Royal court to shape up or ship off. He has been on his best behavior for months now. His father is retiring soon and he will be taking over the Crown. When his bff Spencer’s sister shows up for the festival he is floored. No way is this the same tomboy pain in the arse from his childhood.

Parker decides h must have her. Seraphina and Parker start-up a secret tryst during her stay for the festival. But Parker starts to feel jealous when several suitors start to court her. One in particular named Finely. When the tryst is discovered Seraphina is forced to make a decision. Which decision will she chose? Parker or family obligation.

Man this book had a great storyline, with loads of secrets, lies, deception and love. A quick solid read that was hot off the press and full of amazing sexcapades. The characters are fun-loving individuals who really put others before themselves. Parker isn’t afraid to grovel on his knees to beg for what is his. Such a beautiful thing for a man to do. Wouldn’t you agree? I really think you will enjoy this story of arranged marriages and fighting for love. A hot night read!

The Billionaire’s Secret | Cover Reveal

The Billionaire’s Secret
Mika Lane
Publication date: December 6th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

He’s straight as an arrow on the outside. And crooked as sin on the inside.

By day, Varden Gallagher goes to work at One Market Street, where he’s manager of a big, successful hedge fund. He’s powerful, wealthy, and can have any woman he wants. But at night he slides into a secret world. One where wealth and power count for nothing, and all that matters are your desires, and how you control them. Or don’t.

When he sees his business associate’s daughter—fresh out of college reporter Saffi Bartlett —at the secret Club Silk, he decides to have some fun. Little does he know, the joke’s on him, and it looks like his sinful ways won’t be hush-hush for much longer.

After all, isn’t it the straightest arrow that eventually breaks?
