Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.

No questions asked.

Think about it.

Or don’t.

Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

–Simon

 

 

Absolutely sexy with a bunch of sweet, touching and OMG I didn’t see that one coming moments. It was impossible to put this story down!Simon Hogue was just looking of a place to stay while he finished his residency in the U.S. before he went back to England. He never expected the attraction he feels for his landlord nor the growing feelings that develop between him and Bridget, much less the attachment between him and Bridget’s nine year old son. He knows he’ll be leaving and it would be wrong to pursue her, but he’s still hopeful that her attraction is just as strong as his.

A widow at 34, Bridget wanted to supplement her income by renting out her converted garage. She never would have guessed she’d be cohabitating with the hot, young new doctor working at the same hospital. The same man she can’t keep her eyes off, who makes her laugh, smile and blush because everything that comes out of his mouth is a sexual joke. But the chemistry between them is no laughing matter. Can they find a way to ignore it or will they end up with broken hearts when the time comes for Dr. McSexy to leave?

“The sexy, blond, god of a doctor whom I’d masterbated to for weeks after the fish hook incident…was now my roommate.”

Dear Vi and Penelope, I love your books! I love that this one started out hilariously funny and sexy with delightful banter full of sexual innuendo (what do YOU think Simon was talking about in the following quote? It isn’t what you think!!), then turned to sweet and sexy and then moved to touching, thoughtful and swoony.

“More than the tip is in your arse, and it looks like it’s got a long shaft.”

Delivered with an effortless pace, a wonderfully developed plot and easy to love characters. I was hooked with their story from the get-go. Simon was irresistibly charismatic with his quick wit, dirty British mouth and big thoughtful heart. Bridget, even though a bit more mature had equally charming personality, easy to relate with.

“I finally realized that I was more afraid of losing you than I was of finding you.”

It wasn’t easy for them to find their groove, after all they had very different goals but as some wise person once said “sometimes on the way to the dream you get lost and find a better one.” And I certainly loved the journey these two characters embarked on.

Dear Bridget, I Want You is a standalone romantic comedy by the wonderful duo by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. It is a fun, sexy and touching story, it’s a fast and easy to read with all the feels. A must for Keeland-Ward fans and any romance lover who is looking to get lost in a story that will make you smile and feel. Told from both points of view with a happy ending.

We met on a Tuesday.
Became best friends, then lovers, on a Tuesday.
And everything fell apart on a Tuesday…

Charlotte Taylor has three automatic strikes in my book: 1) She hates me. She also claims that I’m a “domineering jerk with a huge, overbearing ego.” (I do have something huge. It’s not my ego, though.) 2) She takes our mandatory tutoring sessions way too seriously. 3) She’s sexy as hell…And a virgin.

At least, those were her strikes before our study sessions started lasting longer than they were supposed to. Until one innocent kiss became a hundred dirty ones, and until she became the first woman I ever fell hard for.

Our future together after graduation was supposed to be set:
Professional football for me. Law school for her.

But she left me at the end of the semester with no explanation, and then she completely disappeared from my life.

Until tonight.

We met on a Tuesday.
Became everything, then nothing, on a Tuesday.
And now it’s seven years later, on a Tuesday…

**This is a full length second chance romance, inspired by Adele’s “When We Were Young”**

REVIEW: Lucas by Sawyer Bennett

Posted on Updated on


Lucas by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

A wonderfully sweet, sexy and heartfelt hockey romance that was captivating and fun to read.

One of Lucas Fournier’s dream just came true, that is to play pro-hockey alongside his older brother Max. The only thing that could top that would be to win the cup. A goal that very much within the Cold Fury’s grasp as long as they make a concentrated effort to do so. That means Lucas needs to keep his focus on hockey and not the sexy museum curator who’s presented a much unexpected surprise.

When Stephanie Frazier met Luc at a museum’s gala fundraiser and felt the attraction between them, she didn’t hesitate to act on it because what could be de harm in having a no strings attached fling with a very handsome and charismatic man? She’s not interested in a relationship and after one of the best and most passionate nights of her life, she only expected to see Luc on TV during his games. But life seldom turns out the way one expects and now their lives will be forever linked. Can Luc convince the relationship-adverse Stephanie that they belong together?

Lucas was further along on my reading scheduled, but having a book by Sawyer Bennett in my eReader was super tempting. I just couldn’t wait to jump in and I’m so happy I did because I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s everything I love about romance, flirty, sexy and swoony with a dash of angst and definitely earnest with great pacing and solid writing.

It’s a story about family and love. It’s about feeling completely alone in the world and unable to trust anyone else but yourself but finding that there are people and relationships worth holding onto and fighting for. Both Lucas and Stephanie are wonderfully flawed. They’re both young and inexperienced but are faced with a situation in which they need with maturity.

I loved both of them equally. Even though Lucas wasn’t interested in a relationship when the story started, he’s a sweet alpha male with strong family values, deeming Max his best friend and chatting with mother before each game for good luck. Knowing that Stephanie would be a sexy fixture in his life, he doesn’t hesitate to pursue her with relentless patience and thoughtfulness. But because no one is perfect, Lucas has his own struggles.

When I mention Stephanie are flawed I meant Stephanie is broken. I loved that she’s super strong and completely independent but had a childhood devoid of love which hindered her from seeking or even believing in it. It is heartbreakingly sad watching her become a part of the Fournier clan and not being able to accept their friendship and support easily.

It is up to Lucas to break down the impenetrable walls that protect her heart and help her accept her new reality. It’s definitely a difficult journey for both but equally satisfying. I hurt for them, but mostly they made me laugh, smile and blush.

Lucas is book #8 in the Cold Fury series by Sawyer Bennett. It is a sexy and touching story, it’s a fast and easy to read standalone sports romance. A must for Cold Fury fans. Told from both points of view and has a happy ending.

Posted on Updated on

 

Things in Whynot, NC have gone to the dogs, and that’s just the way the town’s only veterinarian, Laken Mancinkus, likes it. No matter if she’s up when the rooster crows, or working until the cows come home, Laken never leaves an animal in need. So when a gorgeous Yankee comes begging for help herding some wily goats, Laken is up to the task.

Jake McDaniel is looking for a tax break, and what better way than to take up…farming? This ex-football player turned businessman turned unwitting goat farmer is up to his knees in goat drama. Runaway goats, dehydrated goats, and a baby goat that wants no one other than him, Jake needs more help than he cares to admit. Good thing the sexy veterinarian is right there to coach him on how to be a farmer. The only problem is, Laken’s not looking for anything more than a good time, while Jake is looking for his forever girl.

Will the baby goat, and Laken, be enough to get Jake to stay? Or will he take his tax break and hoof it back to Chicago? One thing is for certain…what happens on the farm doesn’t always stay on the farm.

Sweet and sexy with loads of feels. Barking up the Wrong Tree is the kind of story that charms, coaxing smiles and warm gooey feelings with its impeccable blend of fun banter, and sweet, sexy love.

What happens when a city boy shows up in the middle of the day at Laken Mancinkus’ favorite hangout asking for help to wrangle wayward goats? As the town’s only vet and utter animal lover, Laken goes to the rescue while ogling the handsome stranger never intending to get her heart caught up in his sexy city slicker pull.

Ex-football player now businessman, Jake McDaniel only wanted a tax break. He never expected he’d have emergency goat drama that required him to fly from Chicago to small-town Whynot to feed a baby goat that latched on to him. And he certainly didn’t expect to fall for the very attractive veterinarian who’s only interested in a fling while he’s looking to settle down… in the big city. Can these two seemingly opposites find a middle ground for their happily ever after?

I just loved everything about this story. So many moments that were utterly sweet and sexy (yes, I know I’ve mentioned this before but it’s true), the completely loveable characters from the grandpa to the hero and heroine to the dog! Oh how I loved the entries with Herman’s POV!

From the moment the laid eyes on each other Jake and Laken knew there were sparks between them and didn’t dilly-dally in acting on it. When a man like Jake wants something, he takes action and when he needs to go back to Whynot, he takes advantage and pursues Laken slyly and relentlessly, even though he never pushed a label. I really liked that they were both very communicative and open to see where their growing feelings led them.

“Why is there something so hot about a man showing tenderness to a small animal?”

For his part, Jake is going directly to my book boyfriend list. He was absolutely charismatic to begin with, add the fact that he put his life on hold for a baby goat (how cute is that?!) and then add stuff like selfless, witty, understanding, a wonderful wooer, observant and yes, very very sexy. And Laken was a perfect fit for him, with a tough exterior that presented a challenge and big heart that gave Jake exactly what he was looking for.

Barking up the Wrong Tree is book #3 in the Sex and Sweet Tea series by Juliette Poe. It is a positively feel good contemporary romance bursting with fun and swoonyness. Told from various points of view, including Herman the dog and Pap’s. It ends with a happy ending.

Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan Review Tour

Posted on Updated on

 

The start to a sexy new series from New York Times bestselling author, Kendall Ryan…

 

She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide.

 

The way she looks at me—like I’m one of the heroes in the books she loves, like I’m broken, and she wants to be the one to piece me back together—it only complicates things further. I’m nobody’s hero.

 

But there’s no denying my tragic past reads like one of her favorite literary classics. It’s raw. Visceral. Captivating. And together, we’re a perfect mess.

How am I expected to resist when the sexual sparks zap between us and set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?

The story continues in Dirty Little Promise, releasing October 9th.

Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars     A gripping sexy adventure of a demur librarian who’s bold enough to explore the her hidden desires. This love triangle is absolutely hooking and a great start to Kendall Ryan’s new Forbidden Desires series.

Dirty Little Secret centers around Emma Bell, a librarian who’s been secretly lusting after the dangerously handsome, impossible to ignore man in a suit that comes in to the same coffee place she does. They’ve never exchanged words, their eyes haven’t even crossed paths so the day he leaves his business card behind she doesn’t hesitate to learn more about the mystery man.

“She was all wrong for me. Innocent where I was hardened, and sweet where I was rough…”

After looking him up and finding out that he and his brothers own Forbidden Desires, a company that discreetly provides companionship for those who are willing to pay for their fees, she probably should have left the information and him to rest in peace. But being curious comes naturally to her and so she wonders not only into Gavin Kingsley’s life but into his brother’s, Cooper, as well by accepting to work for both of them.

Will Cooper’s ploy to help his brother out backfire? How will Emma be able to choose between the brooding Gavin that mesmerizes her and the charming Cooper who’s thoughtfulness is so endearing?

“If he wanted me, he would have me, and I would be powerless to stop him. I was a doe and he was a lion, stalking toward me with determined strides that made my knees go weak.”

The chemistry between Emma and Gavin is off the charts but the camaraderie between her and Cooper is easy and natural. There’s more to Gavin that meets the eye though, and I can’t wait to see what Kendall Ryan has up her sleeve regarding his character and the gripping cliffhanger with which she left us.

“I think you want to feel desired and experience passion, but you’re afraid to ask for it. You want a man to take control, to make you feel wanted, and you want to feel pleasure like you’ve never imagined.”

I started reading Kendall’s romantic comedy series Roommates and got hooked on her lighthearted, fun and easy reads but was very much intrigued by the romantic suspense side of her writing and she certainly delivered an enticing, sparks flying read.

“The desire to ravage Emma was almost overwhelming. I didn’t know what kind of spell this demure little thing in my lap had put me under.”

I’ve already decided which team I’m in as I’m sure Emma has but is a bit overwhelmed by so much sexy testosterone and the Dirty Little Secret she discovered. I think there’s never really been a choice for her. There’s only one Kingsley brother for her, something within both of them calls to the other. So just to be super clear, this is not a ménage.

Dirty Little Secret is the first book in the Forbidden Desires series by Kendall Ryan. It is a delicious contemporary romance escape brimming with sexiness and anticipation. Told from several points of view and ends with a cliffhanger.
