His Nasty Nerd (The Halloween Honeys) by Derek Masters

 

Blurb – 

When I get into a little “trouble” at my marketing job, never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine getting placed into a classroom full of some of the hottest college girls teaching a creative writing class on female fantasies. Because of my playboy reputation, the university assigns me a teacher’s assistant hoping that my “troubles” don’t follow me into the classroom.

When Sydney Lynn walks into my class for the first time, all I can think about is making her every fantasy come true. Assigned as my TA, this quiet and awkward sorority girl has no idea how sexy and beautiful she really is. I have a few tricks up my sleeve and have every intention of helping her discover the wild side she never knew she had.

 

Our Reviews – 

Antonette – 

This was a fun and sexy read by author Derek Masters. He’s no amateur to writing a sexy story and this story was a great example of that.

Dylan was just what Sydney needed to break out of her shell. And though Dylan came across as a huge player at first, a softer, sweeter side was shown which made them a good fit for each other. 

I also enjoyed the twist at the end which made me want more of this story. Overall it was a great read and I recommend it to anyone looking for something quick, fun and sexy.

 

The Day I Stopped Falling for Jerks (Jerk Duet Book 1) by Max Monroe

 

Blurb –

I’m Luciana Wright.
Everyone calls me Lucky, but when it comes to love, I’m anything but.

I have a long history of dating the wrong men.

You know the ones I’m talking about.
The beautiful, charming guys who are quite literally too good to be true.
The ones who are impulsive in love and prefer short flings over long-term relationships.

I’m talking about the jerks.

The guys who taste so good, but are so very bad.

After going through the most ridiculous breakup in the history of breakups, I thought I’d learned my lesson. I officially put myself into jerk rehab and committed to changing my ways.

But, let’s be real here, love is never that easy.

Especially when an arrogant, charming, he-devil of a sexy alpha man gets involved.

Aussie accent.
Tanned skin.
Muscular, surfer bod.
Gorgeous brown eyes.
And the kind of sexy smile that brings women to their knees.

Oh, did I mention that he’s also my best friend’s brother?

Yeah. This story, my story, it’s a real doozy you guys.

The day I stopped falling for jerks, I met Oliver Arsen—the biggest jerk of all.

 

Our Reviews – 

Antonette – 

Another amazing 5 STAR read from Max Monroe. It doesn’t surprise me, though.

Max Monroe have a way with words. They have the ability to snatch you up and suck you in to their stories and make you not want to leave. Ever!

This book had everything I love reading about. The characters, the witty banter, the humor…the reasons why this was a great read are endless.

And of course, as the saying goes, things happen when you least expect them to and that was exactly what happened to Lucky.

Straight out of another break up (in a long line of breakups) Lucky needs a break. BUT, Ollie happens. And you’re going to have to read how everything unfolds because I would be doing you a disservice if I spoiled all the awesomeness that is this story.

I highly recommend this story as I loved every second reading it. I can’t wait to see what else Max Monroe has brewing for us.

Big Stick: An Aces Hockey Novel by Kelly Jamieson

 

Blurb –

A brooding hockey hunk learns to embrace life—and love—from a single mom who takes the world one puck at a time.

“Kelly Jamieson is my go-to author for hockey romance.”—USA Today bestselling author Jami Davenport

Big move . . . Jodie’s motto is “Don’t wait for the perfect moment—take the moment and make it perfect.” And that’s just what she decides to do when she moves to Chicago with her two-year-old daughter. Now all Jodie needs is a place to live, and her best friend’s boyfriend has just the answer.

Big stick . . . Nick Balachov has zero interest in socializing, partying, or flirting right now. It’s not that he doesn’t like women. He loves them. It’s just that hockey, casual hookups, and hanging out at home are enough for him these days. Now Nick has a big problem—because the woman living in his empty coach house is a major distraction.

Big deal? The more Nick tries to keep his distance, the more Jodie needs him—around the house, that is. First he helps with the snowstorm, then the power outage. Nick even finds himself trying to impress her little girl. What the hell is wrong with him? Jodie represents everything Nick doesn’t want. But maybe she’s just what he needs. . . .

Advance praise for Big Stick

“Oh, the feels! Big Stick is a sexy romance that will leave readers begging for the next in the series. Kelly Jamieson has me hooked.”—Tracy Goodwin, internationally bestselling author of Ice Hot: A New York Nighthawks Novel

“Kelly Jamieson’s characters fly off the page. I wouldn’t kick grumbly hockey-hottie Nick out of bed––even if he did pass out on accident. One-click Nick and Jodie. You won’t be disappointed.”—Tricia Lynne, author of Moonlight & Whiskey

Our Reviews – 

Betsy – 

Nick Balachov is a confirmed bachelor and solitary guy who isn’t looking for a wife, kids and an HEA.  Enter Jodie, a single mom with a two-year-old who recently relocated to Chicago to be closer to her best friend Kendra.  Low and behold Kendra is the girlfriend of Nick’s closest friend Max Hallsey.

While trying to get everything set up for their business Josie and her daughter Zyana are staying with Max and Kendra until she can find an affordable place.  Max has the brilliant idea that Jodie could move into Nick’s guest house.  Needless to say, a little madness ensues

While this is kind of an opposites-attract story, it is so much more than that.  You see so much more in Nick and Jodie that what is on the surface.  Seeing how Zyana worms her way into Nick’s heart is endearing.  However, it’s the responsibility of dating a woman with a child that may prove to be Nick and Jodie’s undoing.

All in all, I loved this book and can’t wait to see these three pop up in a future Aces hockey book.

Maverik’s Ashes – Avaleigh’s Boys, Book 4

#SandraRNeeley #MaverikAss #WolvesForTheWin

Maverik’s broken. His entire world came crashing down around him without warning, stolen from him brutally in the night by the one female he entrusted his soul to. His Wolf is all he’s got left, both are bitter, wary, untrusting and dangerous. They hide behind a wall of snarky, biting humor erected to keep the rest of the world at bay as they try desperately to cling to survival each and every day. He’s managed to find shelter in a clan of shifters. They have given him the support he needs to nurse his wounds in his solitary, self-imposed emotional isolation. It’s barely an existence but it works for him, only now it’s getting harder. His clan is growing; they’re finding their Mates, their One. They‘re having babies, loving, laughing – living. And he’s not. He’s feeling more and more isolated. And the fact that he’s stumbled across another female that gives every indication that she’s his Mate is not helping. The last one almost destroyed him; there is no way in hell he will allow another female, any female, an opportunity to complete the job.

Valerie’s a Lion shifter. She’s independent, strong, loving and kind. She’s got more curves than a country backroad and gave up the struggle to be model perfect years ago. She’s learned to love who she is and knows exactly what she’s got to offer the right male. Her Lioness has dreamed all her life of finding the One male who’s meant for her, the one who will love her unconditionally and be proud to call her “Mine.” Unfortunately for her; the wild, tatted, mohawked and oh so sexy Wolf shifter who joins the local clan that frequents her brother’s bar is the male that her Lioness decides is hers. And the bastard won’t even acknowledge her existence! His repeated rebuffs of her attempts to just have a conversation with him end in her blazing hatred for him. If he can’t see past the curves that adorn her body to the amazing female underneath, it’s his loss, not hers. Why then, is it his face she sees each time she closes her eyes at night, each time her new fiancé’ kisses her?

Maverik’s had enough. The little Lioness calls to him in a way that he can no longer ignore. He wants her; forever. But before he can do anything about it, he’s got to deal with the ashes of his past. He’s got to go back, lay it all to rest and try to salvage some semblance of who he once was, of the honorable male that died that night. Maybe then he’ll be enough. Maybe then she’ll see him as the male he once was proud to be. Will he be able to man up, to make peace with his past before her hatred of him becomes so intense that she’ll never be able to see around it? He certainly hopes so, because without her, he’ll never survive.

Kaid has watched as members of his clan have found and claimed their One; their Mate. He’s lonely and his Bear is growing bitter and despondent watching from the side. He’s tired of hurting. Then a visit from an old friend delivers his heart’s desire. She is beyond all he ever dreamed. But there’s a problem; she’s more Alpha than he is, housing a monster that even she is afraid to release.

Delilah was born in captivity. Her parents murdered. All she has ever known is rules, permissions, cruelty, forced to barter in trade each day for her very survival. The concept of love, family and happiness mean nothing to her; they are merely words. She believes she’s been left to die a slow painful death. Then a chance encounter saves her. She is taken on a journey to an Alpha who could be all she never knew she needed.

While Kaid and Delilah struggle to form a bond other than the obvious physical one, a vengeful, unseen threat from the past scurries into the periphery of their lives, threatening not only their new-found chance at happiness, but the lives of every member of their clan and the very land they call home. Will this threat be detected in time to save the lives of all Avaleigh’s Boys and everyone they Love?
