I’m the CEO of a billion dollar company.
I never let emotion get in the way of a good deal.
So what do you think my business mentor would make of the following situation?

I’m about to close a huge deal.
The documents are drawn up.
The price is set.
The seller is itching to sign on the dotted line.
The only obstacle?

His sweet, delicious, delectable, young virgin daughter is assisting me with the details, and all I can think about is taking her right here on my desk.
It goes against all my rules, all my better judgments.
It will completely blow the deal.
But this girl is keeping me up at night.
I picture myself lifting her up on the desk and devouring her.

Her perfect pencil skirt, cut professionally just above the knee.
Her business appropriate white silk blouse.
Her tidy, tied back golden hair.
I just want to mess up her entire prim and proper persona.
I want to ravish her, rip off her expensive clothes, and leave her panting and quivering in my arms.

Business is all about maintaining control.
But love is about losing it.
And with Anna Cook, I’m about to throw all my rules out the window.

This exciting and steamy contemporary billionaire standalone novel with a guaranteed HEA will keep you turning the pages! Includes another exclusive bonus story only availale through this book.

My Review 2

This is the second book by Ms Brooks that I have reviewed.  I really loved it.  It was a really good book with an interesting plot.  I love the billionaire romance stories.  They are hot and sweet all mixed up into one great romance.

In this book Jason is a single father and partner in a firm that buys out companies, that are in trouble, to try to turn them around or sell them off.  Jason is currently in the middle of a deal with his next door neighbor.  His neighbor’s daughter Anna is proving to be a distraction with her tiny bikinis and trampoline.  And what Anna wants Anna gets.  He is trying to stay away from Anna, but she begs her father to help her get a job as Jason’s assistant, which he agrees to in hopes of her spying on Jason for him.  Will Jason be able to close this deal with Anna’s father and avoid temptation?  Will Anna finally win?

Anna is a sweet character with a huge flirtatious way about herself.  Jason is a great guy whom makes sure that his son comes first.  Not to mention he is hot as sin.  yum yum….  I have become a huge fan of Ms. Brooks.  She has a great style of writing, not rushing her stories.  She also gives you a little sight into what happens later in life with her characters.  I love it.  Sometimes you finish a romantic story and you wonder, hmmmm what happens next??  If you like a fun-loving romantic story then this is the book for you.

Review | Dangerous Minds

Dangerous Minds (Knight and Moon #2)

by Janet Evanovich (Goodreads Author)  Dangerous Minds: A Knight and Moon Novel by [Evanovich, Janet]
 3.83  ·   Rating Details ·  480 Ratings  ·  50 Reviews

The irrepressibly charming duo of Emerson Knight and Riley Moon returns in another gripping mystery by #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich.

Buddhist monk Wayan Bagus lost his island of solitude and wants to get it back. The island was about two hundred miles northeast of Samoa. It had a mountain, beaches, a rain forest, and a volcano. And now it’s gone. Poof! Vanished without a trace.

Brilliant and boyishly charming Emerson Knight likes nothing better than solving an unsolvable, improbable mystery. And finding a missing island is better than Christmas morning in the Knight household. When clues lead to a dark and sinister secret that is being guarded by the National Park Service, Emerson will need to assemble a crack team for help. Since a crack team isn’t available, he enlists Riley Moon and his cousin Vernon. Riley Moon has a Harvard business degree and can shoot the eyes out of a grasshopper at fifty feet, but she can’t figure out how to escape the vortex of Emerson Knight’s odd life. Vernon has been Emerson’s loyal and enthusiastic partner in crime since childhood. He now lives in an RV behind Emerson’s house.

Together, this ragtag, mismatched trio will embark on a worldwide investigation that will expose a conspiracy one hundred years in the making.

I love Janet Evanovich.  I read a lot of her books.  This series is no surprise with its quirkiness.  She has a great thing going with these books.  I am enjoying them immensely.
Ok So a lost island How do you lose an island?  Well you will be surprised in this book.  It can happen…….
So Riley and Emmerson are off on another of his wild adventures.  I must say that I am really digging the quirky eccentric man.  Some of the things he does, your like wow!  No he didn’t.
In this book the chemistry between Emerson and Riley starts to simmer.  Not really heat up per say, since they are really slow at the whole idea of a relationship thing.  Maybe it is because Emmerson is well…how should I put this….He’s…well He’s Emmerson.  What can I say?  I mean he is an extremely eccentric billionaire.  His mind is moving a mile a minute.  Not to mention that Riley sees Vernon naked more than any one.  Awkward!!!
In this book his monk friend Wayan was drugged while meditating on a desert isle.  Then he wakes up on another island.  Having been evicted from his meditation home by park rangers,  he tries to return to his island only to find it completely gone.  So he seeks out Emmerson to help him find it.
Not only is an island gone, but people are dyeing or going missing from national parks at an alarming rate.  The government is hiding something.  I mean islands don’t just disappear and people don’t just have a ton deadly accidents while visiting national parks, right?
This book was a wonderful adventure.  I really am enjoying this series.  The banter between Riley and Emerson is cute and funny.  The things Vernon says cracks me up.  He is a nut job.  Emmerson may be an eccentric billionaire with a big brain, but he is Riley’s hero and I feel that these two  will develop stronger feelings as the stories go on.  I don’t exactly think that Emmerson knows what to do with the feelings or how to express them, but it is funny watching him try.
If you are looking for a little danger mixed with comedy, then this is the book for you.  So pick it up today.

My Review

This was the first book by Daisy James that I have read and I was not disappointed.  This book was a refreshing sweet romance.  A book about sweet romance and kisses and summer fun.

In this book you have Evie Johnson, art museum manager and Sam Bradbury hot son of her boss James Bradbury.  Evie has a bout of bad luck, when she gets blamed for a painting mishap.  She has to resign from her job in order to save the gallery.  So she resigns and runs away for a two-week stint in Corfu.  While there Sam turns up to talk her into not resigning and to take the two weeks to open up her creative mind.  When Evie learns a terrible secret everything in her past comes rushing in.  Can Evie keep from losing her passion for art?  Can Sam convince her to follow her heart and dreams?

This book flowed effortlessly.  The writer took her time laying out the plot for the book and created a beautiful setting with some wonderful characters.   Evie is such a strong character with a beautiful mind.  She struggles with getting her passion back to continue painting.  Sam is an accomplished artist struggling to gain the approval of his father.  This book is about believing in yourself and not being afraid of chasing your dreams.  The book is very insightful and a wonderful read.  I give the book 5 Stars.
