BOOK REVIEW- Sweet Rivalry By K.Bromberg

BOOK REVIEW- Sweet Rivalry By K.Bromberg

BLURB

Ryder Rodgers had a plan.
He was going to stride into the conference room, do the required song and dance over the next five days, and win the biggest contract of his career. But when he walked in and heard the voice of one of his competitors, all his plans were shot to hell.
Harper Denton. She was always on top. In college. First in their class. Always using every advantage to edge him out to win the coveted positions. The only one who could beat him. His academic rival. More like a constant thorn in his side. And his ego’s.
When he heard her voice, he was brought back to years before. To the bitter taste of being second best. But the woman who meets his gaze is nothing like the drab wallflower he used to know. Hell no. She was all woman now: curves, confidence, and staggering sex appeal. And no doubt, still brilliant.
The fact that she’s gorgeous and bright won’t distract him. This time, Ryder’s determined to be the one on top. But not if Harper can help it.

MY THOUGHTS

Harper Denton has always been a winner when it comes to business but now she’s in trouble because she’s in a fight not just for a lucrative business contract but her biggest nemesis is her old college rival Ryder. Ryder always played second choice to Harper’s career when they were in college together but not any more and this sweet rivalry has just moved from the boardroom to the bedroom. The only thing wrong with this book is that it wasn’t long enough, loved the characters and the chemistry between them, loved the story line and loved the hot steamy sex. This is a short, enjoyable, hot read.

BOOK REVIEW- The Fall Up By Aly Martinez

BOOK REVIEW- The Fall Up By Aly Martinez

BLURB

I wanted to jump.
He made me fall.
As a celebrity, I lived in the public eye, but somewhere along the way, I’d lost myself in the spotlight.
Until he found me.
Sam Rivers was a gorgeous, tattooed stranger who saved my life with nothing more than a simple conversation.
But we were both standing on that bridge for a reason the night we met. The secrets of our pasts brought us together—and then tore us apart.
Could we find a reason to hold on as life constantly pulled us down?
Or maybe there’s only one direction to go when two people fall in love at rock bottom—up.

MY THOUGHTS

Two different people with completely opposite lives have one thing in common, late night meetings on a bridge both for their own different reasons. Even though they are from very different worlds they are so perfect for each other, each one fighting their own demons that together they conquer. This is a really beautiful read about two broken people who realize that they need each other to heal. It was a little quick with the instant love but the story line was an interesting, deep and powerful one. The characters were both very lovable and the sex was hot. This is a very enjoyable read.

BOOK REVIEW- The Final Fight (Fighting #7) By J.B Salsbury

BLURB

When life brings you the perfect person at the worst possible time…

A few stolen weekends and neither can deny the feelings quickly growing between them. But the obstacles that keep them apart become more devastating when the Marine Corps calls Braeden away for a six-month deployment.
It’s only six months.
What could possibly happen?

MY THOUGHTS

Marine Braeden Daniels is on a weekend visit to Las Vegas to visit his brother and enjoy some R&R while he awaits his next posting, when he meets AJ a Las Vegas performer and they hook up for a night of fun with no strings attached until Braeden leaves on a six month tour overseas. Braeden Tells AJ to get on with her life without him and follow her dream because he has no idea what their future will hold, only neither of them were prepared for how strong their the chemistry and emotional feelings sparked between them causing an unfortunate set of events to keep them apart. Can they get over the obstacles of fate that are keeping them apart from each other? I have read every book in this series and have enjoyed them all and I loved this one. The characters are so lovable and engaging and the story line was a very emotional roller coaster of a ride. A second chance at love that you truly want to see succeed along with some sizzling hot sex, this book is a winner.

BOOK REVIEW- Rebel Heir By Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

BOOK REVIEW- Rebel Heir By Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

BLURB

From New York Times Bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, comes the first book in a new, sexy duet.
How to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons:
Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check.
Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check.
How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:
Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season.
Check. Check. Check.
I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss.
Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town.
Especially when he’s mean to you.
Or so I thought.
Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.
That was sort of how it all started with Rush.
And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.
I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.
I wasn’t supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.
As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
Rebel Heir is the first book in the Rush Series Duet. Book Two, Rebel Heart, will release six weeks later on May, 22,
2018.

MY THOUGHTS

Gia an aspiring author is staying in the Hamptons in a share house over the summer and she has just snagged herself a job working as a hostess of a local bar/restaurant. Heathcliff Rushmore otherwise know as Rush is not only the bar owner but the heir to a huge part of the town that also includes the house that Gia is renting. Rush is a leather jacket wearing, tattooed bad boy with an intimidating personality until he insists on giving Gia a lift home after work one night that opens up a lot of emotional baggage for him and their relationship becomes very complicated. So apart from the two main characters falling for each other very quickly I really liked this book. The characters are very likable and the story line was unpredictable and an emotional path of twists and turns that leaves you with one hell of a cliffhanger. All over this is a great read and I can’t wait for the next one.

BOOK REVIEW- Jilted by Sawyer Bennett

BOOK REVIEW- Jilted By Sawyer Bennett

BLURB

Eden Goodnight went to Los Angeles to make it big, not to be publicly humiliated by her cheating fiancé at a red-carpet premiere. But when Eden returns to her hometown to put the scandal behind her, she can barely find a sympathetic shoulder to cry on. Turns out the locals are worse than the paparazzi, and they all think she’s turned into a spoiled brat. But in a strange twist of fate, the one person who seems to understand what Eden’s going through is Cooper Mayfield . . . the boy she left behind.

Small-town charm is no match for the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. At least that’s what Coop’s been telling himself all these years. As Eden’s old flame—and the landscaper for her family’s historic home—Coop feels some responsibility for getting her out of her funk. But as soon as he sees that million-dollar smile, he’s a goner. Soon they’re making out like teenagers again. But when a life-changing role falls into Eden’s lap, Coop just hopes she doesn’t give up on a love that’s meant to be.

MY THOUGHTS

Eden Goodnight went to LA to make it big as a model then an award winning actress at the cost of the relationship that she had with her high school sweetheart Cooper Mayfield. Now finding out while on a red carpet event that her fiancee has been sleeping with another woman a very embarrassed Eden returns to her family home in the small town she grew up in to escape for a while. Only when she arrives she finds Cooper already living in the house so not only does she have to put up with a scorned community who obviously hate her she also has to deal with an angry Cooper as well. But the more time they spend together the more they seem to be dropping back into the comfortable relationship they once had. But will they make the right choices this time? I really liked this book the story line was engaging, easy and romantic. The characters were both very likable and the sex was very hot. This was a lovely story of a second chance and re-connection.
