BOOK REVIEW- Combust By K.Bromberg

BOOK REVIEW- Combust By K.Bromberg

BLURB

Songwriter Dylan McCoy has been burned.
By her boyfriend she found in her bed . . . with someone else.
By the contract she signed that obligates her to work with him until the songs for his new album are complete.
By her agent when she asked Dylan to keep their breakup on the down-low.
When she finds herself in Sunnyville, she refuses to let her new roommate burn her too. Still . . . a rebound has never looked so good.
That’s her first thought when she sees firefighter Grady Malone.
Sexy. Charismatic. Unapologetic. He’s a man who carries his own scars—the ones on his back, the survivor’s guilt on his soul, and the fear in his heart.
When an unexpected visitor puts their roommate status to the test, will their undeniable attraction burn out, or will they both take a chance and play with fire?

MY THOUGHTS

Firefighter Grady Malone carries his scars not only on the outside but on the inside as well, he’s sexy, funny and unapologetic, he also suffers the pain of survivors guilt and that’s why he will never be able to commit to anyone. Song writer Dylan McCoy has just been burnt by her rock star boyfriend, needing to put some distance between them while she finishes off writing the contracted songs for his new album she finds herself becoming roommates with her brothers friend Grady. I loved this book, the characters were so lovable and their chemistry together was off the charts, how could you not fall in love with Grady? The story line was emotional yet humorous at times and the sex was so hot it set the sheets on fire. The only downside of the story was that it seemed a little too easy for Dylan to move from loving one man to another so quickly. But all over this was a great read.

BOOK REVIEW- Obsession By Nancy Chastain

BOOK REVIEW- Obsession By Nancy Chastain

BLURB

I glanced up, and was filled with warmth and need all the way to my toes. Dillion was standing there, only in his boxers, arms crossed over his chest, causing his muscles to bulge. I swallowed hard, my mouth suddenly dry. He was gorgeous. When he touched me, I melted. I was in love with this man.
My God she is gorgeous, Dillion thought as he leaned against the door jamb and watched her hips sway to the music. At that moment, he knew he was in love with her.
She is mine. I watched over her as she slept. I had read her innermost thoughts. Sara will realize that she loves me, not Dillion. I will have her no matter what.

MY THOUGHTS

When legal assistant at a law firm in Oklahoma City Sara accidentally bumps into Dillion at a club one night she wanted to give him a piece of her mind, but she didn’t expect the instant chemistry that exploded between them that night and instead she ends up giving him a piece of her heart and they fall into an easy comfortable relationship until strange things start to happen around Sara making her feel uneasy and prey to an unknown stalker putting Dillion into protection mode he takes Sara away to his family ranch where their romance blossoms into love. I really like this book, it was such a sweet read. The characters were lovable and the story line interesting and engaging until the final twist that wasn’t expected.

BOOK REVIEW- Hollywood Scandal By Louise Bay

BOOK REVIEW- Hollywood Scandal By Louise Bay

BLURB
HE’S A HOLLYWOOD SUPERSTAR. SHE’S LITERALLY THE GIRL NEXT DOOR

One of Hollywood’s A-listers, I have the movie industry in the palm of my hand. But if I’m going to stay at the top, my playboy image needs an overhaul. No more tabloid headlines. No more parties. And absolutely no more one night stands.

Filming for my latest blockbuster takes place on the coast of Maine and I’m determined to stay out of trouble. But trouble finds me when I run into Lana Kelly.
She doesn’t recognize me, she’s never heard of Matt Easton and my million dollar smile doesn’t work on her.

Ego shredded, I know I should keep my distance, but when I realize she’s my neighbor I know I’m toast. There’s no way I can resist temptation when it’s ten yards away.

She has a mouth designed for pleasure and legs that will wrap perfectly around my waist. She’s movie star beautiful and her body is made to be mine.

Getting Lana Kelly into my bed is harder than I’m used to. She’s not interested in the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, but I’m determined to convince her the best place in the world is on the red carpet, holding my hand.

I could have any woman in the world, but all I want is the girl next door.

A sexy, standalone romance.

MY THOUGHTS
When Hollywood A-lister Matt Easton has to rent a cottage on the Coast of Maine while he’s filming his latest movie he thought he had his life all planned out, get himself a series of blockbuster movies and clean his playboy image up by having a fake steady girlfriend. Until he meets his sassy neighbor and jewelry designer Lana Kelly, Lana loves her small town and anonymity and PDA. But for the time that Matt is living next door to her the chemistry between them becomes stronger than they expected. I really liked this story both Matt and Lana are just so sweet together and their emotional connection was very natural and beautiful. The sex was very hot and steamy and the story line interesting and tender. Narrated by the brilliant and sexy duo Andi Arndt & Sebastian York.

Hooked By Brenda Rothert

Hooked By Brenda Rothert

BLURB

From the author of the On the Line and Fire on Ice hockey romance series comes a sultry novel featuring a brooding NHL player who’s hell on skates—and the no-nonsense woman who forces him to clean up his act.

Miranda: Even though I’m broke, putting myself through college, and working two jobs, I’m trying to make the best of it. Meanwhile, Jake Birch, hockey’s hottest bad boy, lives in a luxury hotel in downtown Chicago—and still complains about every little thing in his penthouse. But after I tell him off, instead of getting me fired, Jake requests me as his personal housekeeper. Then he starts flirting with me. Only I’m not flirting back . . . at least, I’m trying not to. Did I mention that he’s hockey’s hottest bad boy?

Jake: I’ve met the best woman at the worst possible time. Miranda is the fire to my ice—a sexy, charmingly candid spark who breaks down my walls and reminds me what it’s like to feel again. But I’m being forced to date my team owner’s daughter to keep my job, so I can’t be caught with Miranda. Still, we’re getting closer—until Miranda finds out about my “girlfriend.” And that’s not the only secret I’ve been keeping. But Miranda’s the one I want . . . even if she doesn’t believe me.

MY THOUGHTS

Jake Birch the cocky NHL player is forced to live at the Dupont hotel while his apartment is being renovate. Jack has some deep trust issues and emotionally has cut himself off from caring about anything besides playing hockey and getting laid, that is until he meets Miranda who is working two jobs to put herself through college and one of those jobs happens to be cleaning Jake’s penthouse suite at the Dupont. Jake is drawn to Miranda’s honesty and strength and she is the only woman who has managed to break down his walls and reminded him how to live again. This is a typical rich playboy, sports star meets poor, struggling girl and sweeps her off her feet, the characters were ok, the story line was mediocre, the sex was hot but very long awaited. Narrated by Kristen Leigh & Lee Samuals.
