Age is just a number.

Just like he’s just a boy and I’m just a girl.

Except that’s not true, is it?

Because fifteen may be a number, but it’s bigger than that. Bigger than us.

It’s a number that separates us.

An excuse that keeps us apart.

But I’m not willing to give in until I get what I want.

After all, how many other girls can bring a grown man to his knees with one little smile?

 

*please note the age gap is 15 years
*the female is 16 throughout the “relationship”
*it is a standalone novel

So I have read some of the other reviews for this book and I’m sitting here scratching my head. They are talking about the chemistry between the two characters and the love, soulmates etc, etc…I guess they missed the part that she is like 14 and he is 30?? He is not related by blood but is her uncle – she was adopted by his sister. I know that Charlie goes through a traumatic childhood and in a sense she is mature because of it but she is still a child and the author had me questioning what I was reading more then once. I kept forgetting she was a child. I kept forgetting that this was a grown man with a 13 or 14 year old with an unhealthy attachment. To be honest, their relationship was not my cup of tea. It creeped me out. Charlie is written to sound way too mature and Oliver while on his own seems like a good guy – his thinking is majorly skewed. I get that they are both broken and find comfort and solace in each other but come on…what could a grown man find attractive in a 13 year old?? I get this book was taboo but it just was not for me. It may be for you if you like forbidden relationships.

EXCERPT

 “Show me how to play,” I say.

Her body leans back as her brows pinch with a dubious stare. “You want me to teach you how to play piano?”

I nod. “The song you played. I like it.”

She blinks, brushing her fingers through her hair. “It’s about learning to love people’s faults and pain for what they are. Beautiful.”

My head cocks. “Why is that?”

She wets her bottom lip. “I guess when you love someone, you don’t get to choose which parts. You’re getting every single piece of their being, scarred or not.”

Her eyes trail to her hand, scarred with white and pink marks. My fingers graze over each one, causing her to suck in a breath and freeze as I caress the marred flesh. They’re rougher than the rest of her hand, but part of her nonetheless.

Meeting her eyes, we stay like that for a few long moments. Neither of us says a thing or moves an inch. We just remain touching, staring, being there in one another’s company.

Then I pull away. “What are the keys I need to learn for the song?”

She exhales then shows me the basics.

It’s a silent admission between us.

Your scars are beautiful, Charlie.

This book had me within the first chapter. Blue is head over heels in love with Wes and vice versa. They truly are soulmates and on her 17th birthday, just as she thinks he is about to propose Wes gets arrested. That same night when she gets home her horrible father sends her away.

Once Wes gets out of jail he goes straight to Blue’s house where he confronts her father and he’s told she chose to leave. It crushes Wes but he hopes that their love is strong enough to someday reunite them.

Fast forward eight years and Blue is headed back to her hometown with her band. While on stage at a local new bar, Wes spots her and is truly crazed to find her. The rest of the book is them trying to find their way back to each other. This was such a well written and developed story. I could feel Blue’s pain of not remembering and I could feel Wes’s heartache of having her back possibly short term. I got so immersed in their love story. The wrap up to their story was rushed and I feel like there are things that did not get closure. Situations in the book had such description and depth that I felt the ending that they got didn’t satisfy me. I was really disappointed and taken off guard by the abrupt ending. It was such a great book and really deserved just as great of an ending. To me the ending left me slightly disappointed.

The day I lost my best friend was the day I realized that I’d been living in the past. I’ve tried to find a way to heal, to mend that break. Somehow, I came through it partially whole. But I know I couldn’t have done that without Aiden Connolly.

The problem is, he once loved my best friend. And now she’s gone, and I refuse to be in that shadow, or worse, a replacement for someone we both loved.

~~

I left them all behind.

My brother.

My family.

My best friend.

And her.

Only Sienna Knight doesn’t realize what she means to me. But before I can make sure she knows, I need to figure out exactly what that is.

Sienna lost her best friend years ago to suicide. She has never fully healed because there are so many questions why. Her small group of friends left fractured forever. Even Aiden, the boy who she has loved since the first time she saw him, but Aiden didn’t belong to her and never would. Aiden was with her best friend who is now gone and being with Aiden is just wrong. What would everyone think? Would she be breaking girl code? So as she tries to heal, she also has to hide her true feelings for the one person who brings her any peace.

Aiden is struggling. His friends all know it and he knows it. He carries a huge amount of guilt for the loss of one of their group…and his ex. There is only one person who helps him heal and find any peace and that is Sienna. He has loved Sienna from afar for years, even when he was dating her best friend. And now that she is gone it just doesn’t feel like it is ok to be with Sienna.

This storyline had potential but I felt that the first half -almost 3/4 of the book was them repeating the same things in their heads over and over and over of how wrong it was to think of being with the other. What would people think? Would they be judged? Naturally, neither of them has a clue the other feels the way they do. If I wasn’t curious to see how it all played out, I would have stopped because the inner monologue of their guilt was just too much for me. I found myself skipping pages to get to what actually was happening. I was glad they got a happy ending but it was too drawn out to get there for me and not enough action.

BLURB

Thirteen years before Emma Dumas bought me in a bachelor auction to teach me a lesson she stole my heart down on Key West. I fell so hard for this girl I made all the promises. Only with Emma, I really meant them.

And then I disappeared.

But it wasn’t my fault. Let’s just call my reason “Family Business”. I’d tell you what that business is, but then I’d have to kill you. Just kidding. I can’t tell you what my family business is because it’s so secret, even I don’t know.

My point is… I didn’t ghost. It was a weird twist of circumstances. And OK, yes. I did hook up with pretty much every girl on the island that week. But after I met Emma, I was ruined. She’s the only one I wanted.

It’s been thirteen years. I’m a changed man. I STILL want her. I have ALWAYS wanted her.

But it’s kind of hard to tell her that with a gag in my mouth and a hood over my head.

*****

Bossy Brothers: Jesse features a bachelor auction gone wrong, four smart ladies who botch a crazy revenge kidnapping, a fancy power dream date with fast cars, private jets, and expensive yachts, lots of ex-sex, and a happily ever after that proves… sometimes the best man for the job is a woman.

Is it possible to love and not like a book? Well, that is how I feel. I LOVED parts of it and parts of it well…not so loved. Emma is a wounded woman. While she is one of four owners of a billion dollar cosmetics company and has the world at her fingertips, she has been harboring anger towards a boy she met 13 years ago. A boy she felt an instant connection to and stole her heart. A boy who made her think soulmates were possible and she wanted to spend forever with. This boy promised the same things to others. He broke the hearts of others and left them flat too. Those others are her 3 best friends and 3 other owners of her cosmetics company. Thirteen years ago a young, hot, rich, smooth talking boy met them all at different times of the week and made promises to all of them. After nursing broken hearts, these three compared stories and bonded over heartbreak.

The boy? Well, he doesn’t remember these 4 women. He had his own issues and doesn’t remember much of anything except being labeled as a playboy and heartbreaker. A troubled young man involved in a fast crowd. Now he is trying to get his life together and is trying to be a better man. But the cloud that is always over him and his brothers’ legacy is cloudier then ever.

Emma and her besties hatch this “plan” to make him pay and it just felt wacky to me for these grown women to be lashing out all these years later. It’s not like they were in a long term relationship with Jesse for god’s sake!! They were flings and one night stands! So yeah, that part of the book was baffling to me.

We have a funny, witty love/hate relationship between Emma and Jesse. When they come face to face he feels like maybe this could be a 2nd chance for them. I loved watching these two try to out do each other and impress each other and their antics. I was laughing out loud more then once. I was really getting into their 2nd chance at love and then that was where I got lost again. The author uniquely weaves a side story into their love story and I was confused. I don’t get it. I don’t know why the book needed it. Maybe it will make sense in future books but for me, I felt like I was reading two books in one. Now that doesn’t mean that once this second weird story starts to unfold, it may make sense but for right now it seemed so awkward. I will have to see how this all unravels. I am also looking forward to reading about the other brothers and their stories.

EXCERPT

EMMA

“What are you doing?” I ask.

“What’s it look like?”

“It looks like you’re parking at a Tastee-Freez.”

“Nothing gets by you, does it, Emma?”

“Why are you taking me to a Tastee-Freez?”

“Usually people come here for ice cream.”

I just blink at him.

“You don’t like ice cream?”

“Everyone likes ice cream.”

“Exactly,” he says, grinning like a foolish, charming bastard. Which makes no sense at all, but wow. I’d forgotten about that smile and how disarming it is. He looks at me. “Come on,” he says. “It’s a date, right? You paid ten million dollars for this date and now you’re going to complain when I do something date-y?”

This wasn’t part of the plan. The plan was:

Buy him.

Drive up to his lake house.

Drug him.

Wait for the girls to show up.

Take him over to our lake house.

Tie him up.

Make him regret all his asshole decisions thirteen years ago.

Probably gloat too. Little bit of, “Look at me, so rich and powerful now. And you dumped me, you dumbass. But oh, hey. I’m too good for you now. You could’ve had all this and now you’ve got nothing. Sucks to be you.”

Which is all pretty childish because he’s Jesse Boston. He could get any girl he wants. Just look at how they fell all over him tonight at the auction.

Ten. Million. Fucking. Dollars.

I feel sick. Literally, I feel sick. It’s not that we can’t afford the ten mil. It’s just… that was not the plan. This asshole isn’t worth ten million. What the hell were all those women thinking?

And us. What the hell were we thinking? This is all Hannah’s fault. I’m gonna kill her later.

No revenge plan is worth ten million dollars.

And now he wants to have ice cream with me.

Uggggh.

“So?” Jesse says.

“Hmm?”

“Are we gonna get out of the car? Or are we going to sit here all night?”

“I’m not really in the mood for ice cream,” I say.

He grins at me again. Oh. God. Why is he so damn hot? It’s not fair. “See, that’s the best part about ice cream. You don’t have to be in the mood for it. In fact, eating it when you’re not in the mood is the best part. Because it puts you in the mood.”

And then he does one of those little eyebrow waggles.

I squint at him. “Are you coming on to me?”

“What?”

“Was that innuendo?”

He frowns. “What the fuck are you talking about?”

I point to his forehead. “You waggled at me when you said ice cream puts you in the mood.”

“I didn’t waggle at you.”

I huff. “Dude, you totally did.”

“OK, whatever. If you say I did, then I did. But no. It wasn’t innuendo. Ice cream is like… that’s just what people eat when they’re stressed, ya know?”

I just stare at him.

“God, for a woman who paid ten million dollars for me, you sure are a tough crowd.”

“I know how much I paid for you,” I snap. “Stop reminding me.”

“OK,” he says, holding up a hand. “Would you like me to take you home? Should we just… end this?”

I huff. “I paid ten million dollars for you. I’m getting my date.”

He stares at me. No. He glares at me. “Then get your fucking ass out of my car and order a motherfucking ice cream.”

And then he gets out, not even waiting for me. Just gets out, slams the door, and walks up to the Tastee-Freez and gets in line.

“Rude,” I mumble.

True love never fades…

Broken With You, the next suspenseful tale in the all-new Stark Security series of standalones, from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner, is available now!

After surviving a troubled childhood, Denise can’t believe that she’s blissfully married to her partner and soulmate. She’s confident that not even Mason’s long-term, deep-cover assignment will shake their bond. And she certainly doesn’t anticipate that when he finally walks back through her door that he’ll have no memory of her, himself, or their time together…

When Mason is pulled out of an operation gone bad, all he knows is what he’s told — that he was a covert agent, that he has information vital to national security somewhere in his head, and that they can tell him no more for fear of burying those hard-fought secrets even further. They tell him nothing else; not even that the beautiful woman who makes his heart beat faster is not just his partner, but also his wife.

The secret she must keep wrecks Denise, who wants only to return to Mason’s arms. But despite the desire that still burns hot between them, she can’t tell him who she is—or that she’s carrying his child.

But when dark forces threaten both their lives in order to retrieve the information trapped in Mason’s mind, it’s not their past that will be tested, but the tenuous new love now burning hot between them.

You don’t want to miss this sexy, suspenseful amnesia romance!

Whew…I feel like I may therapy after this book!! I mean that in a good way. What a roller coaster of emotions. There were so many downs and ups and downs and up…yikes!! The blurb really does sum up this book nicely and I don’t want to give too much away because I feel this is a definite must read!!

Mason wakes up in a shady hotel room, not knowing where he is, what happened to him or who he is. But what he does know helps him find his way back to his boss. Mason was in special forces and had been on a secret mission and had gone dark for a long time. Because of his memory loss and what could have been done to him to make that happen, means he knows something and something big. They tread lightly on what information to give him about his past and don’t push too hard to avoid a meltdown and never uncover the secrets he has locked away somewhere. One of the things he is not told is that he has a wife that has been waiting for him to return and has been a shell of herself.

Denise. Ugh…my heart breaks for her after Mason being gone for so long and she is wrecked. How can the love of her life not know her? Not remember their love they had for each other and memories they made together. Her biggest fear is she truly has lost him. What will she do if he doesn’t feel for her what he once did. To make matters worse, they are working together and it’s just plain agony for her.

This book was in-freaking tense and a quick, fast paced read with lots of action topped off with a truly amazing love story. I wish it had been a little longer because I felt the ending was wrapped up too quickly and I wanted more!! Can’t wait to read more in this series for sure!!

Excerpt

The sidewalk was clear on both sides, and only a few empty cars dotted the parking area as heat shimmers rose off the asphalt. The world was a fucking inferno, but all things considered, that seemed apropos. Hadn’t he been tossed right out of the frying pan and into the fire?

A sign that looked like it hadn’t been updated since the fifties sat perched atop vertical steel poles and identified the rundown little motel as the Stay-A-While Motor Inn. Hopefully that was only a suggestion, because he wanted to get out of there sooner rather than later.

He walked down the sidewalk toward the sign, passing the pasted colored doors along the way. Green, room 106. Blue, room 105. Yellow, room 2014.

This path was familiar, and there was some comfort in that.

At the same time, having the full extend of his remembered life marked by the Easter egg colors of a half dozen doors wasn’t exactly enough to have him jumping for joy.

The same woman was in the office. About sixty with Lucille Ball hair-he remembered I Love Lucy!

She smiled at him from behind a counter. “Well, you’re looking much better today. Got yourself some sleep, I guess?”

“I did,” he said, then cleared his throat as he glanced around the room. “You got a bus schedule?”

She shook her head. “Sorry, no. Where you heading?”

“Just meandering,” he said, as if he was Jack Reacher, and it was perfectly normal to wander aimlessly around the country.

“Well, let me see if I can find a schedule online for you.” She inched toward a computer that looked to be older than he was, but stopped midway down the counter to answer the phone as she rummaged through a drawer.

He cocked his head, his hand sliding into his pocket as his senses went on high alert.

The phone.

He relaxed.

Of course. He should have realized immediately. The numbers. They were a phone number. 323-555-0717.

“Oh, good, I found it,” she said after ending the call. She pulled a crumpled brochure from a drawer. “So the Greyhound station’s not too far away. That what you’re looking for? Or did you want local routes?”

“Greyhound,” he said, thinking of the 323 area code. “I need to make a phone call. And then I think I’ll head to Los Angeles.”

“Friends there?”

“I guess I’ll find out.”

The Locker Room

Blurb

Have you heard the rumor around campus about the locker room?

If you haven’t, let me enlighten you: Legend has it if you bring a girl into the sacred after-game domain of the baseball locker room, it will end with a walk down the aisle. One rowdy and naked encounter against the lockers with the girl of your dreams will make her your wife.

Translation: baseball players are stupidly superstitious and believe the locker room has magical powers.

But not all baseball players are superstitious, me included.

So when the girl I’ve fallen for brushes me off, I start to question if I need to switch my way of thinking. Maybe it’s time I finally hand out a coveted invitation to the locker room.

The only question is, will she accept?

When Emory transfers to a new college after a devastating breakup, she wants to hang out with her friends and concentrate on her studies. As her boy obsessed pals drag her to hang out with the baseball players, she is determined to keep them all in the friend zone. Until she meets Knox. He’s made it his mission to work his way into her heart. Or at least lunch. Will these two ever cross the line?

“Everything he does and says…Yeah, it turns me on, but it also makes me feel precious. Worshipped. His.”

Cute, funny and full of sass. Love those college romances with sporty, cocky jocks and witty, confident, smart lassies who can give as good as they get. This story was fun and quick to read with sexiness that oozed off the pages and not in a gross way. Emory was a delightful heroine who could keep hunky Knox panting after her with her rapid fire sense of humor and playing hard to get. Their bet was oh so crazy and definitely not one I’d ever make…silly humans. Great teasing romance and the chemistry was off the charts.

If you love to laugh out loud and sassy and silly characters, you need to sit down with a Meghan Quinn book and lose yourself in the pages. Always entertaining and guaranteed to make you snort out loud.

I loved this book! I loved Knox even more. He truly is a one of a kind guy. He is in college and a big baseball star and is definitely going places. He is super hot and he does not have any shortage of women throwing themselves at him. He truly is a good guy though and I just fell in love with him!

Emory is licking her wounds after a breakup with her ex after being together for 6 years. She wants to focus on school and reconnecting with her two best friends who she has moved in with and had neglected during her relationship. She has no plans to date or be distracted by another guy.

Once these two meet it is one funny, witty, line after another and I laughed out loud more than once! Clearly there is an attraction and as hard as Emory tries to keep him in the friend zone, Knox slowly works his way into her heart (and mine!). He is so drawn to her and goes wayyyy over the top to not only impress her and make her see he is genuine and not some jock looking to score. He is so sweet while breaking down her walls. It was so fun to watch this cat and mouse game and see Emory start to trust again. Of course, there is a bit of a twist and I started to sweat wondering if these two would end up together in the end. But you will have to read this book to see what happens with Emory and Knox.

I absolutely loved the other characters in the book, especially Emory’s best friends and Knox’s mother!!! It was such a great relationship between all of them that set the scene for some pretty funny moments. I’m hoping that we see books about some of them as well. This book was a fast paced read and I didn’t want it to end, I just wish the ending wasn’t wrapped up so quickly – it felt rushed to me…it could have used another chapter or 5 but that is just me not wanting this book to end!!

Excerpt

This map is useless.

Easy to read, my ass. I need a magnifying glass to make out any of the color-coded buildings on this thing and unfortunately, I left my magnifying glass in my other skirt. That was sarcasm, if you didn’t catch it.

Standing next to a wonky-looking tree, I try to act as casual as possible—hip popped out, interested glances, the usual—as I hide a school map beneath the pages of Pride and Prejudice , while off-handedly looking for the MacMillan building. But the wind—though subtle—isn’t making things easy.

Recently transferred from Cal State, Fullerton, I’m attempting to avoid making a fool of myself on the first day of fall classes at my new school, Brentwood University.

Unfortunately, I’m way out of my element.

For one, I know nothing about this school other than they have the best library sciences program in the country. Making the transfer a no-brainer for me the minute I realized I wanted to be a librarian. I dabbled in business at Cal State, but who was I kidding? I had no right trying to figure out micro-and macroeconomics.

A California girl through and through, Illinois is nothing like the palm trees and beaches I’ve grown up with. Don’t get me wrong, there are trees here, huge, plush, green trees everywhere, the kind of trees Bob Ross made dance on his canvas. But the smog . . . I have no idea where that is. Breathing fresh air almost feels wrong. And apparently pizza is a big deal here. I’ve heard at least three separate arguments since I’ve moved about which pizza in town is best. Let’s all be friends and be grateful there is good pizza here.

And even though this is a “small” school town outside Chicago, it’s larger than life with boisterous personalities and ivy-covered buildings that cause me to believe I’m walking on the hallowed grounds where the prosperous were educated.

Plus, I had to buy leggings for all my skirts, because the temperature doesn’t call for bare legs out here.

The wind picks up again, lifting my skirt and map at the same time. Not wanting to be known as the resident flasher on campus, I save the skirt—because even though I have leggings, I chose not to wear them today—and tamp it back down on my legs as the map lifts from my book, floats into the air, twirling and swirling only to smack a passing guy right in the face.

Whap .

“What the—?” He startles and I jump into action.

“I’m so sorry,” I say, scrambling to hold my skirt down while clutching my parted book at my chest.

The map is slowly peeled away and a pair of beautiful light blue eyes peek past the paper first, followed by the sharpest jawline I’ve ever seen, defined and tense. Light scruff matches his dirty-blond hair that is swept to the left and cut short on the sides. Dressed in a green Brentwood baseball sweatshirt and wearing a jaw-dropping smile, he chuckles and hands me the map while eyeing me up and down.

Why is he so familiar?

Those eyes.

“Not a problem, but you could have asked for help if you were lost. Slapping me with a map is an aggressive tactic, effective, but aggressive.”

That voice, that smirk. I know it from somewhere.

Feeling a light blush creep up my cheeks, I say, “Not used to the wind.”

He nods and thumbs behind him. “Lake Michigan. It’s a bitch in the winter.” He studies me for a second and then nods at my map. “Where you headed? I can help.” There is the smallest southern drawl in his voice, nothing strong, but enough to tell me he’s not from Illinois.

I know that voice. I remember specifically thinking it was hot.

Tamping down my map and folding it in my book that I snap shut quickly, I say, “I promised I’d figure this all out on my own, but looks like I might need a little help after all.”

“Don’t blame yourself; this campus is a maze with no rhyme or reason. I was lost my entire first semester. Can’t tell you how many times I was late to class.”

“That’s reassuring.”

He tilts his head to the side and gives me a small once-over. “I know you.” I don’t say anything and just as his eyes land on my chest, a smile creeps over his face, a light bulb lighting in his head. “You’re the girl who helped me find my room on Saturday.”

Oh.

Shit.

It’s the yellow-door baseball guy.

He leans forward, hands stuffed in his pockets and says, “I never forget a good pair of tits.”

As if I wasn’t blushing enough already.

SEXY FILTY BOSS by Piper Rayne
WHITE COLLAR BROTHERS – Book 1
Release Day  – June 11

Synopsis

He’s the sexy alpha male in the corner office who goes through assistants faster than free donuts in the breakroom.

I’m the assistant who was chosen to cover for his last fire.

The owner of the company is clear—hook the biggest client in our firm’s history and there’s a partnership for him and a promotion for me. Stipulation—we do it together.

It doesn’t take a tarot card-reading psychic to figure out where our story is headed… late nights, trips out of town, and more than a few awkward moments filled with sexual tension.

No worries though. I pride myself on my willpower. I can totally ignore his sexy grin, his rock-hard body and his dreamy brown eyes. I will not become the woman other women hate.

But it turns out that Enzo Mancini has a lot of layers and if I don’t stop peeling, I’m going to lose everything, including my dignity.

This was an all around hysterical book! Enzo is a big wig at his company, a real rising star. His goal is to make partner. Not only is he ambitious but he is hot!! Smoking hot. But he has one major flaw. He is a terror to all his assistants and no matter how hot he is, he goes through assistants like water and no one wants to ever fill in as his assistant.

Enter Annie, an assistant for another employee at this company. Annie is self sufficient and wants to rise as well in this company but feels its “a man’s man company”. Annie is asked to fill in for Enzo’s last assistant that just walked out the door and she is mortified! Not only does she have a major crush on him since forever, she does not want to feel his wrath but she has no choice to be his assistant. Annie also has a hard time keeping her sassy mouth shut when Enzo tries to talk down to her. She gives it back in spades and it was hysterical to watch!

As Enzo and Annie have to work closely together on a campaign, she jumps at the chance to make a name for herself at work. They start to spend lots of time together and the attraction Annie finds out is mutual. Can Annie force Enzo to loosen his tie and break past his tough exterior?

These two had tons of chemistry and I laughed out loud a lot at the interactions between the two of them. Annie gives it back to him as much as he can dish it out. The story was fast paced and moved along smoothly. I loved the other characters in the book…Enzo’s brothers and sister Bianca. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that there will be books about them as well. Great summer beach read with a little sass and spice!
