Chaser (Dive Bar #3) by Kylie Scott

My Rating: 4 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: Yes, Dive Bar #3
Subject: Changing for love .
Synopsis:
Given his well-earned bad boy reputation, Eric is having a tough time scoring.. When single Jean moves to town, she seems heaven sent by the sex gods. Only problem is, she not only wants nothing to do with him, but it turns out that she's pregnant.

Starting over in a small town, Jean is determined to turn her wild lifestyle around and be the kind of mother she always wished she'd had. Since local bar owner and all round hottie, Eric Collins, is now determined to steer clear of her pregnant self, it should be easy. When she goes into labour during a snow storm and her car slides on some ice, it's Eric who comes to the rescue.

There seems to be a bond between them now, but is it enough? And can Eric give up his manwhore ways to be the man Jean needs?























I have to accept I was sceptic about reading Eric's story, and who would blame me. 
The first chapter in the book I hated him, he was looking for someone to settle down or at least try to so people would get off his back about being insensitive and unreliable when it came to women and life in general. 

He singled Jane out and was shocked to find out she was pregnant... not a surprise, since all he could think about was himself. How could he even contemplate getting involved with someone that would soon be a mother.

But destiny had another plan for him and he couldn't get her off his mind. 

He tried to avoid her but they were like magnets and he soon realised he couldn't stay away. Maybe being friends wouldn't be such a bad thing. 

Jane was young but strong, she fought for her baby and was not ready to give everything up for a guy, that's what made her irresistible in his eyes. She only had eyes for her baby but little by little she also started seeing Eric too.

As we know, love always finds a way, and his and Jane's story would turn out to be a truly beautiful one. 

They changed him in the best way possible without him even realising it was happening. He found a part of himself he didn't know he had; caring for someone other than himself might lead him to his best adventure so far, and just maybe, change his life forever.

Seeing him under another light did change my perspective of him, still it's not always good to think we can change people and we will always get the happily ever after we want, they were the lucky ones, but only because he wanted to make this change. 

He was ready for more and he found everything he was missing in her and her baby.

EXCERPT
I’d been tricked. Betrayed.
After Andre and Jean ate their lunch, we headed outside to deal with her stuff. The cold wind suited my mood to perfection.
Talk about disappointed.
“Don’t lift that, it looks heavy,” I snapped.
Jean blinked. “It’s a pillow.”
“The world’s largest pillow ever. You can’t be too careful.” My gaze roamed over her swollen middle. “You’re . . .”
“Pregnant?” she asked with a voice dripping poison and sugar.
“Are you having trouble with the concept?”
“Absolutely not. I was just going to say huge, that’s all.”
She blew out an exasperated breath. “Thanks, Eric. That makes me feel so much better.”
“I just . . .”
“Don’t bother.” The woman turned back to her sensible, medium-sized SUV and got busy riffling through the contents. I was surprised she’d been able to squeeze into the driver’s seat.
Boxes and stuff took up almost every inch inside the vehicle. Each and every box seemed to have been neatly labeled with the contents.
The woman took her organization seriously. She looked over her shoulder. “You know, I can’t help noticing that Eric-the-smooth-moving-flirt has been suddenly replaced by Eric-the-awkward-jerk.”
“Well, you said you were single.” I folded my arms defensively across my chest.
“I am.”
And then there was an awkward silence.
“Yeah, but . . . I mean, in your condition . . .” I fumbled to a halt.
She turned, face all scrunched up. Like I was the one with the problem.
“Just hop out of the way so I can grab some boxes,” I said, voice gruff.
Still nothing from her. “It’s a second-story walk-up and you have a lot of stuff to get up there. You should be taking it easy.” Hands on hips, I tapped my black leather boot against the sidewalk, waiting her out. “Jean, I’m not trying to insult you. It’s the truth.”
She swore quietly, going back to fussing with the contents in the vehicle. I don’t think any woman has ever given me the silent treatment quite this quickly. Usually I’m good for at least a couple of hours after seeing them naked.
Man, I still couldn’t believe this was happening. God hated me or something. Pregnant women and me were enema. Anathema. Whatever. Now that I’d seen her out in the autumn light, however, she looked younger than I’d first guessed. Despite her tired eyes, her skin was smooth, soft looking. She was likely closer to her early twenties than mid.
“How old are you?” I asked.
“Why do you care?”
I shrugged one shoulder. “Just curious.”
“How old are you?”
“Nearly thirty.”
She sniffed. “I’m twenty-two.”
Young, like I’d thought. She was probably too immature for me, anyway.
 “Come on, Jean. Let me get some of the boxes.”
Boyd ambled out of the Dive Bar, turning his head this way and that, looking up and down the street. I raised my hand and he started over in our direction. The big cook would make short work out of moving all this stuff. Behind us, Andre and Nell came out of the tenants’ entrance to the Bird Building. The place was a big brick building about a hundred years old. Just past the door was an entryway with stairs leading up to the second floor, followed by two empty shops, their windows covered in flyers about local events. Concerts and parades and shit. They’d been vacant for a while, unfortunately. Andre’s Guitar Den came next, then Pat’s tattoo parlor Inkaho, and the Dive Bar on the corner.
“Everything’s good to go. Alex and I gave it a cleaning last week just to be sure,” said Nell, smacking a kiss on Jean’s cheek.
“You’ll meet Alex later. She’s probably busy working or something now. She’s sort of a shut-in.”
“You two didn’t have to do that,” said Jean. “Thank you.”
“Anytime.”
Andre leaned against the SUV. “Your furniture got delivered yesterday too, so it’s all good to go.”
“Excellent,” said Jean. “I can’t wait to sleep in a decent bed again. Road trips when you’re seven months’ pregnant kind of suck.”
“I bet.”
“Who’s minding the kitchen?” I asked.
“Lydia will text Boyd if they need something,” said Nell.
“We’re only going to be a few feet away from the place.”
I frowned.
“I own the kitchen, Eric. Not you,” she said. “You’re in charge of the bar, that’s all.”
One of Jean’s eyebrows inched up slightly. So I might have implied that I was the sole owner. Shit happened.
I crossed my arms. “Fine. No need to bite my head off.”
“My best online friend just moved to town. We’ve been texting and skyping for months. She’s been an absolute rock for me through all the nerves of being pregnant again,” said Nell. “Stop messing with my happy.” 
And then there was an awkward silence. Great. If only there was some way to get out of helping without looking like a raging asshole. The possibility of anything happening between me and Jean had been buried six feet deep, never to be spoken of again.

Series: Yes, Cowboys & Angels #4
Subject: A second chance.
Synopsis:
Jonathon Turner is going to be the death of me. 

Maybe not the death of me…but my panties for sure! They seem to disintegrate the moment he touches me. Looks at me. Smiles at me. Talks to me. 

It’s more than physical. He’s breaking through an impenetrable wall. 

There’s a problem though—he’s younger than me. 

Six. Years. Younger. 

Let’s not forget he’s also one of my brother’s best friends.

Oh, the other problem I forgot to mention… 

I never wanted to fall in love again. 

But you know what they say….never say never.

I'm so in love with the Cowboys and Angels World!

I remember reading the first book in the series and being unable to put it down. I'm sure everyone who's been following the series shares my feelings and probably cried their hearts out at times during this story, because by now we know them. This family is part of our lives and when they hurt so do we.

It was an amazing love story, and not because it was perfect and happy at all times, but because it was raw and real. Love is that way in real life when it's true.

Giving your heart to someone, the way Waylynn and Jonathon did, has it's risks and heartaches along the way. Because love is pain, people are not perfect and when life throws them a curve ball they sometimes hurt the people they love the most.

That's when the true part of true love comes to play. If someone loves you the way Jonathon loved her, they won't stand down, they will never stop fighting for you and that is what we can all hope for. To find someone who can stay besides us even when we feel we can't stay standing anymore.

Waylynn was always one of my favorites from the family, she had a fiery spirit, she fought so hard to recover that made her thirsty for life. But at the same time, we couldn't blame her for being scared of opening her heart again. She had done that once and she lost herself in the process.

I don't think she could have found someone with a heart more pure that Jonathon, he was everything she didn't know she needed and when he looked at her everything else disappeared.

A beautiful story like always.

EXCERPT I didn’t hear a word that the interior designer was saying. I was focused on the way Jonathon looked in those Wranglers. And his boots. And the freaking black cowboy hat that made his grey eyes stand out. I swallowed hard. Jesus…could this guy get any hotter? Jonathon caught my stare from across the room. When he smiled my panties nearly disintegrated. The man had never even touched me, and yet one look from him and I was damn near panting. Yes, he could get hotter. Christ Almighty. Before I could stop myself, my tongue ran over my dry lips. Jonathon’s brows rose and his boyishly handsome smile turned into a sexy-as-hell grin. When his eyes smoldered, my breath hitched. I wiped my brow. Shit, is it hot in here? Jonathon knew where my dirty little mind had taken me, and I was pretty damn sure his was going in the same direction. I closed my eyes and tried not to picture anything sexy, but failed. Me…up against the wall with him buried deep inside me, giving me a long overdue orgasm. “Waylynn? Waylynn?” Ann’s voice pulled me from my naughty thoughts. Popping my eyes open, I cleared my throat. “What? Huh?” With a sweet smile, Ann repeated the question I had totally tuned out. “The color scheme. Are you good with it?” I frowned. What in the heck was she talking about? Color scheme? “Umm.” The young woman waited patiently, while I stood there with my mouth open like an idiot. “Color scheme?” I asked with a slight smile. Ann laughed. “Did you even hear a word I said?” My eyes darted to Jonathon. He was leaning against a desk in the middle of the room. It was the only piece of furniture that had been left by the previous owners of this space. His arms were now crossed over his massive chest, and he wore a shit-eating grin. Did the man know how freaking handsome he was? That sex appeal dripped off of him? He winked, and I had to lock my knees to keep from falling. Bastard. He knew exactly where my mind had gone, because his was there as well. Turning back to the interior decorator, I replied, “I’m so sorry. Jonathon was distracting me.” One quick glance back and Jonathon’s smile vanished, replaced by a shocked expression. “Me?” he asked. I nodded. “Yes. You.” Ann was now staring at Jonathon. I could see by the look in her eyes and the way she chewed her lip that she was having similar thoughts. It was obvious by the way she was trying not to look in his direction while she talked. She was probably the same age as he was, and that pissed me off. Then again, I had to remind myself that Jonathon hadn’t been staring at Ann. He’d been staring at me. “What did I do?” Jonathon asked. I wanted to say that his hotness was making my panties wet, and the throbbing between my legs was making it hard to think, but I decided it was best to avoid the truth. “That desk you’re leaning on. I keep wondering why the previous owner left it?” Jonathon looked down at the desk as Ann asked, “Do you want to keep the desk? It would be beautiful refinished.” I shrugged. “I’m not sure.” Jonathon walked around it. “I’m sure we could put this to good use. I can come up with an idea or two.” His head lifted and his eyes caught mine. I swore they turned as dark as the night sky. I swallowed, trying to ignore the pulse between my legs.

Turn Me On (Man of the Month #7) by J. Kenner

My Rating: 4 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: Yes, Man of the Month #7.
Subject: Opening yourself for love again.
Synopsis:

Sometimes one night just isn’t enough. 

Though they see each other only once a month, Amanda’s sweet body and wicked ways have been driving Derek wild for over a year. 

And now that he’s moving to Austin, Derek is determined to have Amanda in his bed permanently. 

There’s only one problem: Amanda’s happy with their current arrangement. Can Derek convince her a lifetime of nights together will be so much sweeter? 

Meet Mr. July … he’s determined to heat things up.

And don’t miss Bar Bites: A Man of the Month Cookbook by J. Kenner and Suzanne M. Johnson, featuring recipes, slices of life, and an all new short story!



TMO_SBPR_RB BANNERWHITE






















Derek and Amanda's story was lust at first sight. They knew there was something about each other that made them connect on a deeper level, before they even talked.


When they finally did, it was like a bomb had gone off, they couldn't get enough of each other and their arrangement worked perfectly. No feelings, no attachments, nothing could go wrong.


But we all know how this things work, sex always gets complicated and if you like each other enough to stay together for a long time its probably because you already have feelings but you just choose to ignore them.


They were scared, Amanda was afraid of opening her heart again and Derek was afraid of letting go of his father's company and just take a chance and change his life.


They had a great thing together, and being afraid could just ruin it all if they couldn't get pass it and trust their hearts.


Taking a chance in love is scary, but the opposite is way worse. Living life not really making a choice would never give you true happiness. Sometimes good things are worth the risk.

Hot and Badgered (Honey Badger Chronicles #1) by Shelly Laurenston

My Rating: 5 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: Yes, Honey Badger Chronicles #1.
Subject: Embracing the craziness
Synopsis:
It’s not every day that a beautiful naked woman falls out of the sky and lands face-first on grizzly shifter Berg Dunn’s hotel balcony. Definitely they don’t usually hop up and demand his best gun. Berg gives the lady a grizzly-sized t-shirt and his cell phone, too, just on style points. And then she’s gone, taking his XXXL heart with her. By the time he figures out she’s a honey badger shifter, it’s too late.


Honey badgers are survivors. Brutal, vicious, ill-tempered survivors. Or maybe Charlie Taylor-MacKilligan is just pissed that her useless father is trying to get them all killed again, and won’t even tell her how. Protecting her little sisters has always been her job, and she’s not about to let some pesky giant grizzly protection specialist with a network of every shifter in Manhattan get in her way. Wait. He’s trying to help? Why would he want to do that? He’s cute enough that she just might let him tag along—that is, if he can keep up . . .













Another of Shelly’s fantasy worlds I couldn’t help falling in love with.

Last time it was the Crows, now we get to meet a lot of shifters, that are hilarious and insane most of the time, and it was perfect!

The MacKilligan sisters are a force of nature and each of them has different set of skills that makes them unique and special. It also makes them lethal and each action scene was incredible to read.

They can’t seem to escape trouble, the family curse follows them everywhere they go, and they somehow cross paths with an amazing family of bear shifters. 

Berg had no idea who she was but when he saw Charlie he knew he wanted her.  What he didn’t know was that fate would cross their paths again and he would be helpless against her. 

He was here to stay she was what he wanted, the only problem was keeping her there long enough to convince her that he could be everything she wanted too.

I LOVED Stevie, she was the craziest of them all, and her panic attacks where triggered by the most illogical logic I’ve ever witnessed. Her obsession with the panda was just too good to be true; I truly think she is my spirit animal!

I still feel we only got to really meet Charlie, Max and Stevie are still a mystery, and I can’t wait to uncover it!












Come As You Are by Lauren Blakely


My Rating: 5 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: No.
Subject: Some things are worth the risk.
Synopsis:
I couldn’t have scripted a more perfect night.
For one fantastic evening, at a masquerade party in the heart of Manhattan, I’m not the millionaire everyone wants a piece of. Fine—multimillionaire. But who’s counting all those commas? Not me, and not the most intriguing woman I've ever met, who happens to like dancing, witty banter, and hot, passionate up-against-the-wall sex as much as I do.
There's no need for names or business cards. And that’s why I’m eager to get to know her more, since my mystery woman seems to like me for me, rather than for my huge…bank account.
Everything’s coming up aces. Until the next day when things get a little complicated. (Newsflash — a lot complicated.)
***
He's charming, brilliant, an incredible lover, and right now I want to stab fate in the eyeballs.
I've had one goal I've been working toward, and lo and behold, my mystery man is the very person who stands between me and my dream job. A job I desperately need since my hard-knock life has nothing in common with his star-kissed one.
But it’s time to put that fairytale night behind me, and focus on learning what makes him tick. Too bad it turns out his quirks are my quirks, and his love affair with New York matches mine.
And as we spend our days together, I discover something else that feels like a cruel twist of fate — I’m falling for this naughty prince charming, and that’s not an ending I can write to our story.

Requesting the presence of your pleasure…

What do you get when you mix a masquerade ball, a smoldering secret rendezvous, and a sexy, billionaire hero who will sweep you off your feet? An opposite-sides-of-the-tracks standalone romance that you’re guaranteed to love!

From #1 NYT bestselling author Lauren Blakely, comes the gorgeous and sexy-as-sin forbidden romance filled with wit, humor, and so much heart, COME AS YOU ARE! Secret trysts and stolen kisses abound in this brand new, swoontastic novel. Get your copy of COME AS YOU ARE delivered now!














I needed this kind of love story in my life right now! 

I Enjoyed this book immensely, I just loved every second of it.

From the beginning, Sabrina and Flynn where a perfect match. Who hasn't fantasized about the mysterious Masquerade encounter where you get to fall madly in love with a stranger? We have all seen the Leo Di Caprio's Romeo and Juliet (dreamy sight). And in this book we get to experience it along with the main characters. 

The connection they had was instant, even though they couldn't see their faces completely they felt a pull that was more important than looks and that they were certain would translate in not only the best sex of their life, but also a night they will forever remember.

Something changed when they met, Flynn hadn't felt like this in a long time and his mystery woman felt like a glass of water in the desert, he was tired of people wanting him from who he was and the anonymity was just what he needed.

Sabrina was going through a rough patch to say the least, life had been hard on her and she just needed to let go for a night, and she found freedom under her mask. What she definitely wasn't expecting was this sexy mysterious Duke who she couldn't figure out.

But life had other plans for them and once the spell was broken and real life collided with fantasy they realized that maybe their love was not meant to be. 

Some things are worth fighting for and maybe risking it all will give you what you didn't even know you wanted or existed.

A beautiful story, I couldn't be happier with the characters, they were just PERFECT!

 EXCERPT

~FLYNN~

I part my lips to speak, to tell her I’m not a VC. But I flash back to the racquetball game, to the face-lift suggestion from my sister. If this angel thinks I’m a VC, that means my face-lift is working. My costume is doing what I want it to do—it’s making it possible for me to be me. To have a conversation as Flynn Parker the guy, not as Flynn Parker the multimillionaire.

She doesn’t know who I am. And I don’t correct her. “It can be.”

She nods thoughtfully then roams her gaze over my black attire. She taps her bottom lip. “Hmm. Let’s see what we have here tonight because I don’t think you’re a ninja.”

I punch the air. “Keep going.”

She studies me more closely. “You’re something mysterious. You’re trying to fly under the radar. Am I getting warmer?”

More like hot. “Yes.”

Her brow knits. “You want to go unnoticed, at least for the moment.”

I tense, hoping she’s not putting two and two together as to my identity. Absently, I raise my hand to my glasses, wondering if they give me away. But then I remember. I’m wearing my contacts tonight, something I rarely do.

She snaps her fingers. “I know! You’re a stealth start-up,” she says, using the term for a new company that’s keeping quiet.

I raise my arms in victory, a thrill racing through me. “Everyone else has guessed code ninja or SEO ninja, but you’re the first person all night to get it right. I am, indeed, a stealth start-up.”

Admittedly, donning black pants, a black shirt, and a black eye-mask might have made it challenging to guess. But then again, the angel figured it out, and all without the missing start-up button.

“Your lips gave you away.”

She recognized me from my lips? I furrow my brow behind my mask. “What do you mean?”

“Your mouth,” she says, raising her fingers dangerously near to my lips. “I could tell you weren’t a ninja because your lips aren’t covered. Ninjas cover you’re their mouths.” I relax again since she was referring to my clothes. “Only their eyes show. But you’ve covered most of your eyes, and you’re showing only your mouth and your chin. That’s how I knew you had to be something other than a ninja.”

“I could kiss you for that,” I blurt out. I take a step back and hold up a hand. “I’m sorry. That was probably terribly inappropriate.”

A smile slowly spreads across her lips. “No, it wasn’t inappropriate. It wasn’t inappropriate at all,” she says. Something in the way she takes her time with each word tells me she wouldn’t mind being kissed. That gives me one mission and one mission only: keep talking to this angel.
