This was one of Kendall’s books that had me all swoon-y for a hot as hell lady doctor. Mason is pour perfection! He is one of those men that every single lady hopes and dreams for but for some reason only exist in our wildest dreams. Caring, compassionate, he loves with everything he has, always giving a hundred percent. He is just one of those characters you fall hard and fast for, total swoon material!

Bren is left reeling from the one night stand she had with Mason. He consumes her thoughts and she wonders what it might have been like if she hadn’t given him the slip the morning after. No note, no name, no phone number….was it a mistake or the right thing to do?

Bren soon comes face to face with her mystery one night stand in what I consider the most horrifying way possible! He is the doctor currently looking at her HOO-HA and shit just got real!!! Both Mason and Bren know why she is at his office. Is she pregnant? Is their hot as hell one night of tearing up the sheets about to become a lifetime tied together?!

Gah, for me Kendall did it again with a fast paced, fabulous summer read! I loved the characters and what each of them brought to the table. The way Bren and Mason fit together just worked for me, and they were destined to have more than just one night together. I loved how the characters developed through the story and how they found out what they really wanted in life. As always I would love to read more about these characters and also Mason’s doctor friend Trent. *Wink, wink Kendall* I would recommend this book for all of the readers looking for something that isn’t to in-depth. It’s a fun, flirty, fast paced book that I read in one day. Bren and Mason are a great addition to the Rommates series!

Kason and Adaline, everything starts out perfect until the crave, need, want for Kason becomes more than he knows how to handle.

Adaline, Ady to her friends moves from Texas to Florida with her mother. Moving for any high schooler isn’t easy. Having to find new friends and learning how to fit in, ugh so glad those days a long over for myself. Ady does find a few friends in some guys, and in their small group Kason catches her eye right away.

Kason hasn’t had an easy life, growing up with a single mother that works two jobs to keep them afloat. Kason also works to help his mother. He has never known the life of luxury that his friends and classmates have. He is a boy some would say is from the other side of the tracks, but Kason has plans for his life. By getting into the “rich kids school” he is given a better chance to go to college and make something of himself.

Kason does everything he can to stay away from Adaline but just like a moth to a flame he is drawn to her. The connection is strong and he is tired of fighting it. He just has so many questions running through his head. Can he be her everything? Can he fight the compulsions that he craves so bad? Will loving and being with her be enough or will he always need just a little more?

So I’m going to let you in on a little secret…..this was my first E.K. Blair book *gasp*. I must say, I fully enjoyed myself. Crave is a mature young adult book that held my attention and kept me wanting more. It deals with adults situations that I’m not going to go into because that is a huge part of Kason and Adaline’s story.  I loved how well developed the characters were and how the story flowed so well. There were a few times that things got repeated more than once and I found myself lightly going over those, but other than that I can’t wait for part two! I can’t wait to see how Kason and Adaline’s story concludes.

You guys!!! You see this book? EPIC. BLOODY BRILANT! I absolutely LOVED it! I had the hardest time putting it down to get daily chores done. The characters Annie and Jack just sucked me in and I devoured their story! Their story does contain what some would consider triggers but for me it just made me read faster, I had to know what what going to happen.

Jack in many ways I would compare to a beaten dog. One that has had the life sucked from it and just sits there and takes it. Unsure of how to escape, and only knows how to handle the physical blows said dog knows is coming.

Annie is a young sought out after architect. She has her sights set on the top and that is where she is headed. Landing big jobs one after another all she has time to do is work, so when her friends declare a fun night out Annie agrees. Who knew a drunken night out and a run in with a sexy stranger would forever change Annie’s life.

All the twists and turns The Forbidden takes you on is soooo worth the journey. Jodi Ellen Malpas I hope you’re no longer scared of stepping out of your comfort zone, because this is by far one of my FAVORITE reads of 2017! So damn good! All the angst and sex scenes in this book had me turning pages and antsy to see how these characters stories would unfold. I can’t tell you enough…buy the ebook and a paperback…you will want this in all forms. Absolutely FABULOUS read and one of my top 5 reads for 2017!!!

Excerpt

“Thank you for your help,” I say quietly, studying him, definitely detecting that he’s deep in thought. Don’t ask, don’t ask, don’t ask. I need to get back into my apartment without engaging with him, which could prove tricky when he’s blocking the doorway and looking like he has no intention of shifting to let me in.

“Annie,” he breathes. “I’m struggling so badly.”

“I’m not doing this.” I swallow, pushing my way past him. He grabs me by the top of my arm and holds me in place. “Let me go, Jack.”

“I’ve already told you I can’t do that. Annie, I’m drowning here. I’m going out of my mind, and the more time I spend with you the fucking worse it’s getting. Listening to you, talking to you, sharing a passion with you that goes way beyond the amazing time we had in bed together.”

“You have to forget!” I yell, knowing anger is the only way forward. Be angry with him. Let it dominate me and rule me, because the alternative scares me to fucking death.

He pushes me into the hall and slams the door behind us, forcing me to back up. “No,” he says, straight and even. “No,” he repeats, moving one more step forward, except this time I don’t retreat. Because I can’t. Because he has me locked in place with those grey eyes, and now they’re back to their full glory. Sparkling, even if it’s with anger. He reaches for his shirt and starts unbuttoning it before shrugging it off and throwing it to the floor, revealing the chest that’s haunting me.

I quickly look down at the pile of material, my mind reeling. His chest. His perfect damn chest. “What are you doing?”

“I have no fucking idea.” He reaches for me and slides a hand around my neck, pulling me to him. Our chests meet, and my determination to repel him vanishes under our connection. Wrongs turn into rights. Conflict turns into craving.

“I can’t get you out of my head, Annie.” His forehead meets mine, his palm massaging away the tightness in my neck muscles, softening me up until I relax in his hold. “I want you all over again, and I can’t even find the will to worry about how much more that’ll make me want you.” He breathes down on me. “I’ve played that night on repeat. I’ve dreamed of holding you in my arms again. I’ve craved the sound of your voice, the feel of your touch, the softness of your lips on mine. I know I shouldn’t want you. But I do. Nothing has ever made me feel this insane with need. Nothing has taken up so much space in my head. I can’t fucking help it, Annie.” His grey gaze sinks into me, my heart steadying to an even thrum. His head starts to shake mildly, his splayed hand moving up to the back of my head and fisting my hair. “I don’t want to help it,” he growls. “I want you. I don’t care how wrong it is.” His clenched fist tightens, gripping my hair harshly. “I know I’ve been on your mind since I fucked you every which way in that hotel room. Stop denying it. Don’t insult me and tell me you don’t crave that amazing feeling all over again. I can see it in your eyes every damn time I look into them. You. Want. Me.”

It’s me who moves in first. All me. I lunge forward and smash my lips to his, the magnetic force winning. His words winning. Jack winning. My heart winning. I coax his mouth open with hard, hungry kisses. I’ve lost my mind to a craving too powerful to fight off. And, like Jack, I don’t care how wrong it is.

Lost.

Yet as he walks me backward until my back slams into the wall, I feel found again.

I cry out, and Jack moans. We’re clumsy and desperate. He’s pushing me up the wall with the force of his kiss, then he’s rolling away, taking me with him until it’s his back slamming into the wall. It’s the elevator all over again. The atmosphere is sizzling. I’m on fire. He scoops me up, pinning me to him, and carries me into my bedroom. I focus on him. Only him and the return of feelings that I’ve fantasized about since that unforgettable night. All the guilt is abandoning me, and I let it, unprepared to let anything stop me from taking the forbidden.

When you can’t trust yourself, how can you ask anyone else to?

It’s been months since Aden Colt left the Army, and still the memories haunt him. When he moved into a tiny boat off the California coast, he thought he’d found the perfect place to escape life. Then Sawyer shows up and turns his simple life upside down. Beautiful and sophisticated, she seems out of place in this laid-back beach town. Something is pushing her to experience everything she can—including Aden. But as much as he wants her, starting a relationship with Sawyer puts them both at risk. For Aden, the past doesn’t stay there; it shows up unexpectedly, uncontrollably, and doesn’t care whose life it wrecks.

Aden is a man that has been through a lot, seen, and now has to live with everything he has seen during his time with the Army. Feeling that his family isn’t safe with him around he takes off on a fishing boat and keeps to himself. He has mindless one night stands with women to keep from getting close to anyone. He likes it that way, being alone. Until Sawyer shows up and rocks his carefully constructed world.

Sawyer is in town to help pack up her sisters rented home. Sawyer in many ways has the same mannerisms as Aden. She doesn’t have any friends and keeps to herself. She thinks that many of the bad things that have happened to people around her are her fault. Going to pack up her sisters apartment is way out of her comfort zone but she would do anything for her sister.

Aden and Sawyer meet and there is a instant spark there. Both of them feel it and neither one tries to fight it….to bad. Aden helps Sawyer learn how to live in the moment, and Sawyer helps Aden forget about the demons that cause his dark thoughts.

There are obstacles that both characters have to over come. Will they be able to do that, help each other? Or are they both to far gone?

I really liked this book. Great storyline and characters. There were a few times I laughed, and several times that the story pulled on the ol’ heartstrings. Aden and Sawyer are just truly two characters that are supposed to be together, the chemistry that they have is undeniable. I would recommend, and give it 4.5 heart warming stars.

Excerpt

Oh no, fuck no!

I thought he was kidding. I should’ve known better. Aden’s intentions with me since I stupidly boarded this boat have been my torment for his enjoyment. He loved watching me squirm over the bait tank and when I proved I wouldn’t shy away from a challenge, he pulled out the big guns. From his flirty smiles to his teasing touches, he’s discovered my weaknesses and is exploiting them for his own entertainment.

Now this? Raw fish probably still warm from fighting for its life.

And now I’m God knows how many feet above water sitting on a two-seater bench held up by rusty ladders and staring down a piece of glistening pink meat.

“You have to eat it, it’s a rite of passage.” He offers the meat to my lips and I quickly turn my face away.

“I’m really not hungry.” As if the idea isn’t enough to turn my stomach, watching him clean the fish before sectioning off enough for lunch wasn’t much of an appetite builder.

“Of course you are.” He brings the piece to his own mouth and takes a bite, closing his eyes with a moan as he chews.

I feel a rush of bile hit my throat, or maybe it’s beer, either way it’s warm and it burns. “That’s disgusting.”

“You’re telling me you don’t like sushi?”

My eyes widen. Sawyer would say she’s never had sushi. But Celia’s a different story. She ate a live cricket in the eighth grade on a dare. She didn’t even flinch. “I like sushi, just not directly from the…um…source.”

“Doesn’t get fresher than this.” He takes another bite and I can’t deny that his response to eating it does give it some appeal.

“I think I need soy sauce or that green stuff.” What’s it called?

“Just try it.”

“I really don’t want to.”

“Oh come on.” He smiles in that cute crooked way that makes my heart dip and dive. “Live a little.”

I chew the inside of my mouth debating the cost/benefit of taking a bite of this fresh-out-of-the-ocean fish. On one hand, I’ll impress Aden. That in and of itself is worth the ick factor. But what if I throw up all over his boat? Is the chance of impressing him worth totally humiliating myself? I groan when I realize what I’m doing, exactly what I swore I wouldn’t do. I’m making an internal pros and cons list. I close my eyes and steel my resolve and my spine. Don’t think, just decide. I pop open my eyes followed by my mouth.

“Yeah?” He stares at my parted lips.

I nod, hoping he’ll hurry before I change my mind.

Lifting the rose-colored flesh forward, he places it between my teeth. It’s a small bite so I close my lips around his fingers expecting him to pull away…but he doesn’t. For a moment I’m suspended in his gaze, totally stuck while his hot fingers rest between my lips. This should be grossing me out; after all, I watched him gut this fish with his bare hands and to wash off all the blood he merely dipped them into the ocean. But all the thoughts of raw fish and a stranger’s finger do nothing to stave off the warmth blooming in my belly. My tongue pulls the meat deeper into my mouth, brushing against the rough pad of his forefinger. He bites his lip but finally drops his hand.

He watches intently while I chew and swallow.

“How was it?” His voice is low and gruff.

Lost in the heated moment, I barely tasted it. “Good.”

His hand cups the back of my head and he pulls me toward him, stopping just short of our lips touching. “I can’t fucking take this anymore.” His breath is sawing in and out, bursting against my mouth with impatience. “Let me.” It’s a demand, not a question.

A kiss. I don’t need to channel Celia or flip a coin…I know what I want.

I lick my lips and close the slight distance between us.

Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland ~Release Tour w/ Reviews

BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE
By Vi Keeland
RELEASE DATE: JULY 17TH

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.

He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.

When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend–smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.

He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he’d done.

Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.

Only it turned out, the man I’d just told off wasn’t the right guy.

Oops.  My mistake. 

Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.

I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?

That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.

Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.

I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.

Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.

This was going to be interesting…

Y’all!!! Vi does this every time, she makes me fall for the characters and want more than is offered from the story told. For me there was plenty of swooning, panty melting, laugh out loud moments. I love that Vi always makes strong female characters, and males that are willing to bend for the woman they fall hard for.

Caine West, holy shit ladies!! This dude is hot, slightly cocky, seems to be on the straight and narrow (until you find out what his past used to be), he WILL make you swoon.

Rachel, always running late, in a hurry, hard worker, and horny as hell.

The way these two meet had me laughing out loud, and then the finding out that Caine is her TA is just hilarious. To say they got started off on the wrong foot in a understatement. They work past their first meeting and soon form a fast sexual tension filled student/teacher relationship.

Who will break first? Who can’t fight the innuendos, looks, and tension between them any longer? Oh, you so want to read to find out!! 😉

It’s no shocker that I LOVED Beautiful Mistake. I loved the banter, sexy times, the characters in general, and the storyline between them, and the BIG shocker/twist in the story that I didn’t see coming! I whole heartedly recommend this book, it’s a fabulous summer read!

Ok so I want to start by saying that this book has a pretty big twist in it, which makes writing this review on the hard side. There is so much I want you to know but letting one, teeny, tiny little piece of info out will give too much away. I’m just going to give you the basics which will be similar to the blurb, not because I don’t want to blurt everything out….but it’s definitely a must read and I want you to have the same experience I did.

So, the book started out a little slow for me and was on a slow incline but I kept going. Rachel is in a bar and her drunk BFF points out a guy who recently screwed her over. During a conversation with said jerk, Rachel rips into the guy giving him a piece of her mind! She gives him a tongue lashing accusing him of being a two timer who is married with kids, etc, etc.  He doesn’t seem offended but rather amused by her tantrum.  She does however realize later that the hot guy she just told off…..not the guy who two timed her friend…Case of mistaken identity or rather a drunk friend pointing in the general vicinity of a bunch of guys LOL.

Fast forward to the next day where is to start her first day as a TA at her college and is running late.  One of the very few things she has heard about this professor is that he hates tardiness….she is aware this is not the best way to start this day off.  Yes, you guessed it…hot, married, cheating guy from last night is her professor Caine West.  It is comical to see these two struggling to get through the next few conversations.  At this point I honestly thought ok, so this is gonna be another story of teacher/student (or TA) forbidden love story.  Will someone find out and blackmail them?  Will the school find out and fire him?  Will she lose her TA position?  I figured ehhhh…..not much different from the other 100 books with this storyline.  ONLY……its not.  While a large portion of the book is about their professional relationship and budding personal relationship there is a huge plot twist that literally sneaks up on you and punches you in the face!!

I started to figure it out right before it was said in the book….and wow!  Never saw it coming until literally right before the characters realize it. It was startling to say the least and quickly changed my opinion of this book. I had only wished that the twist had come out earlier….it was so close to the end of the slow moving book that I wanted more.  The chapters of the characters realization and seeing how it played out came too close to the end and I wished it could have been longer!!!  BUT…..all the same, I was riveted and anxious to see how it all plays out!  It is heartwarming and endearing!

There are plenty of sexy hot sex scenes to keep you turning the pages until you start to see where the storyline can be going and once you realize it the pages will fly by.  I loved the slow build up of their connection and their witty banter back and forth. As far as the twist and the end….holy amazeballs!!!  Loved that part of it!!  Definately a must read!

Big girls don’t cry. They go after what they want.

Thanks to her bangin’ curves, Valerie Carmichael has always turned heads-with the exception of seriously sexy Logan Mathis. Just Valerie’s luck that the object of her lust-filled affection is also best friends with her overprotective brother. But Valerie’s determined to get Logan’s attention…even if it means telling a teeny little lie to get a job at his new bar.

Logan can’t remember a time when Valerie didn’t secretly fuel all his hottest fantasies. Now the curvaceous she-devil is working behind his bar, tempting him every damn night. It’s only when he finds Valerie’s naughty things-to-do list that Logan decides to break every rule in the book-by making each red-hot deed a reality.

No one warned them that they were going to fall this hard. And no one warned them that sometimes the smallest secrets can have the biggest consequences.

Excerpt

Valerie Carmichael needed a drink. A strong one. Because it was the only way she envisioned herself getting through the night.

An elbow nudged into her side, bringing her thoughts back to the crowded bar. “I can’t see anything through all of these people,” Brett said, scanning the room with his eyes. “Come on, let’s go to the other side so I can get a better view.”

Sighing, Valerie trudged behind him without a word.

When Brett had asked her to attend the grand opening of Bottoms Up, a new bar in their hometown of Granite, Texas, she’d hesitated to say yes. Sure, she was curious what the inside of the recently remodeled bar looked like and had no doubt the place would be jam-packed with handsome, available men. But it was still the last place on earth she wanted to be.

She knew better than to hang out in bars with her older and only—thank God—brother. Every time she’d done so in the past, the nights had always ended the same way. Brett would spend the entire evening hovering over her like a rabid pit bull, daring any single guy with a glint in his eye to look her way. Because Valerie turned heads. She always had.

Oh, she wasn’t silly enough to believe she looked like some gorgeous supermodel with a lean, trim figure or anything. She definitely didn’t. But she had a pretty face, banging plus-size curves, and a lively personality. And that was good enough for her. Valerie was just…Valerie. And damn proud of it.

Across the room, Sam and Leah emerged from the dense crowd, with a beer bottle for him and a glass of water for her. Apparently, Leah was still on that damn diet and counting calories so she would fit into her wedding dress. Though why she didn’t just buy the dress in a larger size was beyond Valerie.

Leah blinked at the sight of her. “Val? What are you doing here? You said you weren’t coming.”

Valerie shrugged. “I changed my mind.”

“Are you feeling okay?”

“Yeah, sure. Why?”

“When you said you didn’t want to go out, I assumed you were sick. You never turn down a night out.” Leah placed her palm lightly against Valerie’s forehead. “You sure you don’t have the flu or something?”

Valerie laughed and pushed her friend’s hand away. “Oh, stop it. I just didn’t feel like getting dressed up. I’m getting tired of the whole bar scene.”

Then Valerie’s heart stopped, along with her lips. Oh God.

Brett stood there talking to a tall, dark-haired man who had one thumb hooked in the front pocket of his jeans while he leaned comfortably against the wall with his right shoulder. She couldn’t see the other guy’s face, but she didn’t need to. Valerie recognized all six feet, two inches of him. Logan Mathis.

About The Author

Alison Bliss CREDIT Julie Abston Photography

Alison Bliss grew up in Small Town, Texas, but currently resides in the Midwest with her husband and two sons. With so much testosterone in her home, it’s no wonder she writes “girl books.” She believes the best way to know if someone is your soul mate is by canoeing with them because if you both make it back alive, it’s obviously meant to be. Alison pens the type of books she loves to read most: fun, steamy love stories with heart, heat, laughter, and usually a cowboy or two. As she calls it, “Romance…with a sense of humor.”

Bitch Slap by J. Kenner ~ Release Blitz w/ Review

 

Synopsis

The first time I met her I wanted to slap her.

The second time, I knew I had to have her.

As for the third time, a gentleman doesn’t tell.

So I guess it’s a good thing I’m no gentleman … right?

Let’s get this out of the way, right off the bat: I love women.

I love the way they look. The way they smell. The way they feel. Especially the way they feel. And I’ve pretty much made it my mission to give each and every woman who shares my bed the ride of her life.

Then I met her. Bitchy as hell and completely uninterested in me. And damned if I didn’t want her. Crave her. I told myself I only wanted to tame her. That it was all about the challenge.

I never expected to break through that ice queen exterior and find the softness underneath. Never expected how wild she’d be between the sheets or the way she’d cry my name with such sincere intensity when I totally rocked her world.

Most of all, I never expected to fall for her.

But I did.

And the question is, now that I know I want her, how the hell do I go about keeping her?

Oh Pierce, he owns a security business with some close friends and family. Typical hero that doesn’t do relationships only one night stands after being burnt by a woman he cared deeply for. Only Pierce meets Jez in a very unlikely encounter. Once they meet she rocks his world and he has to learn more about her.

Jez is the older sister to a well known young starlet. Jez does everything she can to protect her sister from the throng of not so loving fans she has since splitting with her late boyfriend. Jez herself has also been burnt by a past lover and knows business and pleasure don’t mix well.

How does Pierce find away to get closer to Jez? Will Jez take a chance on Pierce? Well…pick up the book to find out 😉

Bitch Slap is a quick fast paced read. It was a little to insta-love for my taste, but was still a good read. I loved the characters, and the story that was built around them. I would actually like to read more of them in the future. A solid 4 star read for me.

About the Author

Julie - J Kenner Author PhotoJ.Kenner (aka Julie Kenner) is the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and #1 International bestselling author of over seventy novels, novellas and short stories in a variety of genres.

Though known primarily for her award-winning and international bestselling erotic romances (including the Stark and Most Wanted series) that have reached as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, JK has been writing full time for over a decade in a variety of genres including paranormal and contemporary romance, “chicklit” suspense, urban fantasy, and paranormal mommy lit.

JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.” A five time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy). Her Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series (as Julie Kenner) is currently in development with AwesomenessTV/Awestruck.

Her books have sold over three million copies and are published in over twenty languages.

In her previous career as an attorney, JK worked as a clerk on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and practiced primarily civil, entertainment and First Amendment litigation in Los Angeles and Irvine, California, as well as in Austin, Texas. She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.
