The Bohemian and the Businessman Series: The Story Sisters #1 (A Blueberry Lane Spin Off) By Katy Regnery


 PURCHASE LINKS – 99c for a limited time / Free in Kindle Unlimited


Priscilla Story, the self-proclaimed “wild child” of the straight-laced Story clan, has always had a knack for getting herself trouble. Except this time, her “growing problem” is going to require a Daddy sooner than later…or she can kiss her inheritance good-bye.

Shane Olson, who previously dated Priscilla’s sister, Margaret, isn’t opposed to a marriage of convenience for the sake of furthering his business interests, but Priscilla – with her wild ways – is just about the last woman he’d choose to marry.

In order to make the marriage look convincing, they end up having to spend more time together than they’d originally planned. When rolling stone, Priscilla, who lives by the seat of her muu-muu, and seriously-ambitious Shane, who’s had his whole life planned since he was eleven, start falling for each other, it’s going to take a whole lot of compromise for this Bohemian and her Businessman to find their happily ever after.

Addicted 2 Romance Review:


I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This is the first/2nd story about the Story sisters. It stars Priscilla Story who is the black sheep, free spirit of the sisters, hence she is called a Bohemian in this story. Her sister is Margaret Story, who in a previous book ends up with Cameron which is why its the 1st/2nd story of the sisters.

There are two things I don't like in my romance novels, one is sisters who share a man, even if it was at one time, and two a woman pregnant with another mans child. From the outside this story featured both in this story.

But its not really true. Margaret and Shane, the hero in this story, well they kissed once or twice and its described as boring. They have nothing but a friendship. And before Priscilla even proposes to Shane, she makes sure that Margaret has no interest at all.

As to the baby, well its this guy who was married, is much older, tells Pricilla to get rid of it because he has a wife and family already. Plus he is in France.So while she is pregannt with this others mans baby, the man in question is 100% out of the picture and Priscilla hates him.

This story starts two years before. Around the time that Margaret quits working for her father, takes up with Cameron and starts her winery. It is also before Jessica Winslows wedding.

The story starts with Shane who has been quietly hanging out with Margaret. Margaret's dad wants Shane to marry one of his daughters so he can make Shane a CEO. He feels it is a family company so Shane must marry into it and the best bet is Margaret.

But Margaret has a thing for Cameron Winslow and so she refuses. However, Priscilla who is pregnant needs to get married as if she is single when her father finds out believes he will throw her out. So she talks Shane into marrying her instead. Shane and Priscilla have always liked/had an attraction but Priscilla is flighty and Shane is sorta a business nerd, and so while they flirted they never dated.

That is until the marry in secret and well that's when the magic happens. This story was fun, sweet, romantic and made me SIGH a lot. The author created a couple that I LOVED and one I loved reading about.

In this story both Shane and Priscilla are poor. In fact Priscilla needs to get on Shane's medical care because she does not have any money of her own.I kinda liked that they were a typical poor couple. Who had to work hard to take care of themselves.

This really was a wonderful story and I really loved the entire story and all the characters.

Boomerangers by Heather Orgeron

The Story 


Boomerangers [boo-muh-rang-ers] noun, informal: an adult that moves back home to live with a parent after a period of independence.

Spencer

I love sex. I love the power, the intimacy, the euphoria it brings. Too bad I’m not having any . . . You’d think as New Orleans’ most renowned sex therapist that I’d be swimming in single men. In a way, I am . . . except for the fact that one is in diapers and the other two are drowning in preteen hormones. As a single mother of three, my days are devoted to my clients and my kids, and my nights are spent with Fabio, my trusty vibrator. When my world begins to unravel, I have no choice but to move back home. And when my high school sweetheart comes waltzing back into my life, comedy and chaos ensue.



What can I say? I never said I could pick ’em, but you can bet your ass I know how to fix ’em.

Cooper

As soon as the ink dried on my divorce papers, I made myself a solemn vow: I was done with relationships. Moving home to take over my father’s firm was the plan, until Spencer decided to return, along with three souvenirs from the life she’s lived without me.

I’ve been in love with the girl next door for nearly all of my life; the rest was spent trying to forget her. I’d give almost anything for a second chance with her, but I have no time for distractions—especially the kind that involve diapers, bottles, and eighteen-year commitments.

The problem is, she’s already got me by the balls . . . and I’m beginning to feel the noose tightening around my heart.


Addicted 2 Romance Review:


*I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.*

This book was wonderful and by the end of it I was amazed how much I loved it. But when I started reading it, it is not my usual romance. The star of this story is clearly Spencer. She is a mother to two 12 year old twins, Lake and Landon with her first husband Tate. Then she had a fling with bad boy Alex and had her third son, Kyle who is two. Because of how bad a dad Tate is, she decided no dad is better than a dad who resents you so she had full custody of Kyle and shares custody with Tate.


So Spence is a 33 year old woman with three kids and no boyfriend or husband  and then loses her job. Her mother asks her to come home and so she drags everyone home. When she gets there the first thing she sees is her ex from high school Cooper, who broke her heart.

Things start off rocky when Coop says he hates kids and his marriage broke up because he didn't want kids. Plus he acts kinda crappy to Spence's kids. Spence and Coop start of a benefits relationship but Spence won't give Coop more than that because she loves her kids and he is anti kids.



What she does not know is that Coop loves her. He has loved her for 15 years and he hurts when he sees her kids. So the story is not really about Spence and her kids. It is more about Coop getting to know and fall in love with Lake, Landon and Kyle.


There are so great moments that fellow moms will love. The big diaper blowout and some of the funny things Kyle says. Along the way one of Spences exes causes some trouble and Coop has to rescue everyone.

Coop has to work very hard to win Spence's heart and her trust. The real issue in this book is not the kids. It is that Coop broke Spence's heart in high school and she fears he will do it again. So he has to win her heart and trust.

This was a really great book with some funny moments, and a story that will tug at your heart.

HIDDEN DEPTH by Brenda Rothert


GOODREADS:https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/32177418-hidden-depth
AMAZON: https://www.amazon.com/Hidden-Depth-Lockhart-Brothers-Book
iBooks:http://bit.ly/HiddenDepthIBOOKS

I had it all. Breaking into the entertainment business as a teenager wasn’t easy. I spent years of my childhood traveling, auditioning and hoping my big break would come. And when I did, I rose to a level I never imagined. Elle Tyler: model, singer and actress. I couldn’t go anywhere without security anymore. It was everything I ever wanted and more - fame, fortune and worldwide recognition.

At age twenty-four, I was living a dream. But a single act of violence shattered my fairytale existence. In a matter of seconds, all the goodness in me was ripped to shreds. Overnight, the people around me dropped away, moving on to find the next big thing. I gave up on myself, becoming a woman so dark and forlorn I no longer recognized myself.

But the stranger who saved me that day, Justin Lockhart, never gave up on me. He still saw light through my darkness. And as we grew closer, I started to see it, too. And I also started to see that before that terrible day, maybe I didn’t really have it all. Maybe I was always missing the only thing that really matter.



Addicted 2 Romance Review:


I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This book was all kinds of wonderful and I hated for it to end. I also LOVE the Lockhart family and hate that this is the author's last story on the single Lockharts. I really felt this story brought the whole series full circle as Ivy who starred in the first book was very central to part of the storyline.

This book stars good guy and lawyer Justin Lockhart. Up to now he has never been seen only heard of in this series. In this book he is finishing up an intern job because he has graduated and passed the bar and is ready to go home to his family and his hometown of Lovely.

One day he arrives early for a lunch date and he literally saves our heroine Elle. Elle is a model and rockstar/singer. She is world famous and her reputation is very wholesome. She is engaged and is pretty much super happy with her best friend Chloe her assistant, a famous Fiancee and all the money she needs. She is on her way to Chicago and is very excited for a concert she is giving there, when the act of violence occurs. And Justin is the one that saves her.

If you know this author well she embraces pain in her heroines. They are strong women who don't know how strong they are, until they are forced to thru life and well that really is what Elle's story is. She has to find out how strong she is and thru that ordeal she discovers who she really is beyond the fame and money and career. She discovers who and what is important to her and she finds out what is really important in life.

As her and Justin get to know each other well I fell hard for this story it was beautiful and watching them fall for the other. They really see each other and I loved how there they are for the other. I also loved how the author brings Ivy and  her attack back and it really helps Elle deal with what happened to her and it makes her stronger. It was an amazing plot twist using Ivy's pain and having her make Elle even stronger. To me that plot twist really brought the series full circle and I loved it.

 This story really deals well with the negative side of love and hero worship and the twisted things love can make one do in the name of love when in actuality its the furthest thing from love its obsession.

This story was AMAZING and I loved it so much. It is one of those books I know I will be re-reading again.

THE HOT SHOT GAME ON Book 4 By Kristen Callihan

First we were friends. Then we were roommates. Now I want more…

What can I say about Chess Copper? The woman is capable of bringing me to my knees. I know this about five minutes after getting naked for her.

No one is more surprised than me. The prickly photographer my team hired to shoot our annual charity calendar isn’t my usual type. She’s defense to my offense, a challenge at every turn. But when I’m with her, all the regrets and darkness goes away. She makes life fun.

I want to know Chess, be close to her. Which is a bad idea.

Chess is looking for a relationship. I’ve never given a woman more than one night. But when fate leaves Chess without a home, I step up and offer her mine. We’re roommates now. Friends without benefits. But it’s getting harder to keep our hands off each other. And the longer we live together the more I realize she’s becoming my everything.

Trick is… Now that I’ve made her believe I’m a bad bet, how do I convince her to give this player a true shot at forever?

EXCERPT
CHESS

Grumbling, I toss on some black lounge pants and my oversized Tulane t-shirt and head to the drugstore.
My head throbs by the time I get there, and my insides are writhing. I rest my hand against my lower stomach and grab a basket before calling James to complain.
“I swear,” I tell him as I grab a bottle of painkillers. “It’s like this entire day has been cursed.”
He snickers. “Curse. Get it? Curse?”
I roll my eyes, even though he can’t see me. “Laugh it up. Meanwhile, it feels as if someone is playing Battleship in my uterus.”
“Poor Chessie bear. At least we know why you were in such a foul mood.”
A flush washes over my cheeks. “Yeah.” Lie. Lie. Lie. A tub of salted caramel gelato makes its way into the basket.
“Tell me you’re getting some gelato,” James says.
I smile. “Just grabbed it.”
“Salted caramel?”
“You know it.”
I find the feminine products aisle and search for my brand. “I’m going to go home, take a long bath with my gelato, and forget this fucking day.” Forget Finn. “And then I’m going to go on Amazon and buying a freaking year’s supply of tampons so I don’t have to make these kinds of emergency runs anymore.”
A low, deep chuckle rumbles from behind me, and all the tiny hairs lift on my arms.
“But you’ll still need your gelato,” a familiar—fuck me, seriously?—voice points out.
My insides swoop even as my cheeks burn.
“Who is that?” James asks in my ear.
I slowly turn on one heel. “The plague,” I say, glaring up at Finn Mannus’s smiling face.
“From asshat to plague.” Finn scrunches up his brow. “I’m not sure if that’s a step down or a tie.”
“Who is that?” James nearly yells now.
I don’t take my eyes off Finn. “I’ll call you back.”
James’s squawks of protest cut off as I hit the end button.
“Are you stalking me, Mannus?”
Finn a rests his hands low on his lean hips. “Having a healthy amount of conceit myself, I have to admire yours, but no, buttercup. My buddy Woodson lives a few blocks away. It’s poker night. I’m stocking up on beer.”
It’s only then I notice a twelve pack tucked under his other arm.
“And tampons?” I ask, with a pointed look around the aisle we’re standing in.
 “Not tonight,” he says easily. “Though we used to keep a pack of them back in college. Light flows were perfect for stopping up bloody noses.”
A snort escapes me. “Now there’s a visual.” Somehow, I’ve taken a step closer to him. He’s freshly showered, the golden brown strands of his hair still damp at his temples. And I wonder if he’s just come from the gym or practice. “So back in college you went and bought these tampons?”
“Nah,” he says with a cheeky smile. “I’d ask one of the girls hanging around to get me some.”
“Of course you did.” My nose wrinkles with annoyance.
“Give me a little credit, Chess. I’d buy them now if I had to.”
“Hmm…” I eye him, trying not to return his smile. If only because it’s more fun when he teases. “So why are you in this aisle now, if not for potential nosebleed needs?”
“That’s easy.” He steps closer, a warm wall of muscle and clean scent. “I heard your voice.”
For a second I just blink. “You recognized my voice?”
His gaze darts over my face as if he’s trying to get a read on why I’m gaping at him. “Not to be…ah…rude, but you’re loud when you talk on the phone.”
“Yeah, but… You recognized it.” We’d only just met. It occurs to me that I’d recognized his both times he’d snuck up on me. Then again, his voice is distinctive, flowing like hot honey when he’s relaxed or hammering down like iron to rock when he’s taking command of a situation.
A soft flush of pink tints the tips of his ears. If I wasn’t staring at him, I might have missed it. He shifts his weight. “Was I not supposed to?”
“No. Yes.” I shake my head and laugh. “I don’t know.”
He grins then. “You’re cute when you’re flustered.”

“I’m not flustered.” I am.

Addicted 2 Romance Review

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I am  HUGE fan of this series and when I heard there was a 5th book well I was so excited. It stars Coca, the coaches daughter, the one that Grace befriended in book #2 Saving Grace and it really was wonderful.

The book starts out with 18 year old Coco and 24 year old Seth Charming, a footballplayer close to Coco's dad and her family. She is going to college and she confesses  her love to Seth. Who handles it VERY badly. So much so that Coco does not see him for 12 years.

The book starts at the airport and Coco is landing and Seth is picking her up and taking her to her parents house. Now Coco is 30 and she is a doctor, she has been off saving the world and is finally ready to come home. But she does not come home empty handed, she brings a boyfriend.

We meet mr perfect guy in Giovanni, this makes Seth realise if he wants Coco he better charm her and win her heart back. I LOVED how involved Grace is in matchmaking in this story and I LOVED seeing the children of the characters I fell in love with in books 1-4.

And I beyond LOVED the scenes with lovebirds Luke and Lara and I totlly cracked up during that scene.

This was a great edition to the series, only with a lack of much drama. If you haven't read this series before, you must read Saving Grace first, so you can really underwtand Coco and her families dynamic. If you have read the series, then this book is sweet, romantic and a perfect romantic gift to the authors fans of this series.

Walk of Shame - Love Unexpectedly #4 - By: Lauren Layne


ENTER THE GIVEAWAY


Sparks fly between a misunderstood New York socialite and a cynical divorce lawyer in this lively standalone rom-com from the USA Today bestselling author of Blurred Lines and Love Story.

Pampered heiress Georgianna Watkins has a party-girl image to maintain, but all the shopping and clubbing is starting to feel a little bit hollow—and a whole lot lonely. Though Georgie would never admit it, the highlights of her week are the mornings when she comes home at the same time as her uptight, workaholic neighbor is leaving to hit the gym and put in a long day at the office. Teasing him is the most fun Georgie’s had in years—and the fuel for all her naughtiest daydreams.


Celebrity divorce attorney Andrew Mulroney doesn’t have much time for women, especially spoiled tabloid princesses who spend more time on Page Six than at an actual job.

Although Georgie’s drop-dead gorgeous, she’s also everything Andrew resents: the type of girl who inherited her penthouse instead of earning it. But after Andrew caps one of their predawn sparring sessions with a surprise kiss—a kiss that’s caught on camera—all of Manhattan is gossiping about whether they’re a real couple. And nobody’s more surprised than Andrew to find that the answer just might be yes.



And who is he, you ask?
Andrew Mulroney, Esquire.
I know this because we moved into the building on the exact same day, and right before we got into a horrendous fight over whose movers should have access to the building loading dock first, he handed me his business card.
The thick white card stock declared that he had a fancy law degree to go along with the fancy suit he was wearing on a Saturday.
Andrew handed it over with such superiority, I actually wished for a half second that I had a business card of my own that would somehow be better than his. Like, lined with gold or something. No, platinum. With a diamond in the corner. It would be too heavy for him to hold, and he’d drop it, thus having to kneel at my feet to pick it up.
But then I realized it was just as well that I didn’t have a business card.
Because it would say . . . what? Georgie Watkins, professional party girl?
Anyway, I digress. Despite the high temps of that swampy July morning, the encounter had been the start of an epic cold war.
Me, the socialite in apartment 86A against the uptight esquire in apartment 79B.
I’m not entirely sure I’m winning the war, but I’ll never tell him that.
I let my gaze drift over Andrew, even though his appearance rarely holds any surprises. The man’s a lesson in sameness, like some sort of anal-retentive version of Groundhog Day.
There’s always the black mug with some healthy gunk inside held in his right hand, Tom Ford briefcase and Armani garment bag in his left, containing what I know to be a perfectly tailored three-piece suit.
Andrew’s coppery hair is perfectly styled, although I’d swear that there’s some natural curl in there threatening to disrupt his perfect order. I imagine that annoys him, so it therefore makes me happy.
Let’s see, what else about my nemesis?
He’s got a hard, unfriendly jawline that’s perfectly shaven.
Dark brown eyes, cold and flat. Black gym bag over one shoulder.
I suppose you could say he changes up his attire, because he does alternate between black and gray gym shirts. But considering that they seem to be the exact same fit, both colors molding perfectly to his impressively sculpted upper body, we’re not giving him any points for variety there.
Same goes for the lower half. The black shorts worn in summer have given way to sleek black sweatpants now that October’s upon us, but they’re both black and Nike, so we’ll give him no credit for changing it up there either.
The shoes, though . . .
I do a double take.
Well, well, well . . .
Instead of the usual black gym shoes, the man’s shoes are red. I don’t know how I missed it before.
I drag my eyes back up his body with a grin, and he gives just the slightest roll of his eyes to indicate that he’s noticed my slow perusal and isn’t fazed in the least.
“You went shopping, Dorothy!” I say happily.
He stares at me. “I don’t shop.”
Of course not. Far too frivolous.
“No, that makes sense,” I say, pointing at his feet. “Glinda would have given these to you.”
Andrew looks down at his Rolex watch. “I’ve got to go. Have a good day, Mr. Ramirez.”
“You too, Mr. Mulroney,” Ramon says with a deferential nod. “Enjoy your workout.”
“Yes, do,” I say, turning and watching as Andrew moves toward the front door of our building. “What’s on the schedule today? Treadmill, or just skipping down the Yellow Brick Road?”
Andrew Mulroney, Esquire, doesn’t respond. He doesn’t even turn before pushing through the revolving doors and stepping out into the still-dark autumn morning.
Now come on. Tell me that wasn’t at least a little bit fun, despite the ungodly hour.

Addicted 2 Romance Review


I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I am a HUGE Lauren Layne fan. I have read every book once and some even twice. Some have been absolute favorites, like the Stiletto series and others I enjoyed just didn't love but this story was incredible. LL has created two wonderfully different and fun characters in this story with Georgina and Andrew. If you are looking for snarky and funny story, well run to read this book because it was pure fun.

Georgina /Georgie and Andrew live in the same building and the title of the book is about Georgie and how she is coming home at 5am when Andrew is starting his day at 5am, supposedly she is doing the walk of shame, though she never really does.

Andrew and Georgie meet weekday mornings at 5am and they form  relationship around that.  The big kiss described in this story happens midway in the book and at that point both characters know they have a relationship with other even if they don't know what to call it.


If I was naming this book I think The Kiss is very appropriate as its a catalyst for how G and A finally end up exploring their attraction, before that they are both resistant to admitting to real feelings for the other. But that kiss changes everything.

I really LOVED this story. Beyond loved. I laughed alot during this story, and I also ached a lot too. This story is actually sweet and romantic. It explores a relationship round two extremely different and opposite characters. But who are both very lonely. Once they come together, they learn what happiness really is.

They have some big challenges in this story but I loved how hard they fall for the other and I loved all the one liners. if you enjoy snarky heroines and lots of laughter along with a sweet and romantic hero, then you will fall hard for Andrew like I totally did.

Faking It By Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde


Confirmed bachelor Max Sterling isn't into rescuing damsels in distress, but when the very tempting Hailey Ellison needs his help, there's only one thing for him to do. Step in and pose as her loving fiancĂ©. 

Except there is nothing fake about his attraction to her, or how much he wants her beneath him in his bed, moaning his name. But what starts as a sexy, flirty, temporary engagement, quickly becomes something more serious that neither one ever anticipated.

Addicted 2 Romance Review: 

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I LOVED this story. It is book 2 in a series and it totally stands alone. It stars hottie Max, who works with the couple in the first book and is also their friend, This is his romance with his client, Hailey.

Hailey is a very unusual character, she is a toned girl with lots of curves who used to be obese. She had sex once in her life, in college andthe experience destroyed her so much that she neverwanted to have sex again.

With that decision she invented a fiancee because as a professional matchmaker it helped take her out of complicated fi up scenarios. What Hailey doesn't know is that Max is in lust with her but he stays away from committed women.

Until one day during a working lunch he meets Maureen who seems to think she knows him as Hailey's fiancee and thats how max get the idea of getting to know Hailey while helping her look engaged which is good for business.

Ma is a great character and I loved that he saw Hailey, inside and out. He is sweet and kind and HOT!! But he has one little problem, he has stalker ex andwell she causes so issues between Max and Hailey.

I loved this books title and it totally describes this very fun, sweet, hot and romantic  story.
