REVIEW: Surprise, Baby by Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam

Surprise, Baby!Title: Surprise, Baby!
Authors: Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam
Publication: March 12, 2019
Genre: Romantic Comedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t think I could have loved Drew and Kendall more than I do right at this moment. This was the first book I’ve read by this duo and the only thing I didn’t like about this book was that it ended.

This was a perfect enemies to lovers read. It had some seriously hilarious moments that had me laughing out loud and I may have even shed a tear or two when shiz went down. And let me say, the narrators were the perfect voices for these characters.

I will be reading a lot more from these authors in the very near future.

synopsis-lips copy

There’s a fine line between lust and hate.

I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem.

His mouth is.

And the stupid things that come out of it.

But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his damnedest to take care of me…

Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on.

And it doesn’t involve talking.

I’ve despised Drew since I met him years ago. One weekend can’t change us that much, can it?

Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.

Except he left me a little keepsake.

And in nine months, I’ll have a surprise for Portland’s most notorious player.

Review: Fireworks by Sabrina Bowen

Fireworks (True North, #6)Title: Fireworks
Author: Sarina Bowen
Published: November 13, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This audiobook was amazing! I’m going to be honest here. This is the second book I’ve read/listened to by this Author. The first book was actually the first book in this series and I DNFed it for one reason or another. And honestly, I was skeptical about this one, but what made me 1-click it (because I so did) was that the blurb grabbed me but the narrators (both of them!) are my favorites! So yep, I snatched this up like a $2 whore. I am so glad I did.

Ben and Skye were so perfect for each other. Both kids from the wrong side of the tracks, but where Benito was loved, Skye was envied, therefore bullied making her already stressful life more so. Emotions run high as a teenager and misunderstandings are abundant. One unforgettable night, Skye had enough and left without a word. 12 years later she’s back and has to face not only the mean girls but also the one that got away.

All I can say is get this book!!!

synopsis-lips copy

Skye Copeland is on paid leave from her broadcasting job after accidentally drawing a pecker on the traffic map.

Let that sink in. Like it’s her fault the traffic pattern that day created a perfect schlong?

Skye isn’t laughing. She needs this job. And that’s the only reason she’s agreed to chase down a story in her least favorite place—that hell on earth known as Vermont.

A quick trip. In and out. Much like – never mind. Skye can sneak into the town that once tried to break her, get the story and get back into the good graces of her producer. Easy peasy.

Except things go sideways even as she sets foot over the county line. Her step-sister is on the run from a violent drug dealer. And the cop on the case is none other than Benito Rossi, the man who broke her teenage heart.

His dark brown eyes still tear her apart. And even as she steels herself to finally tell him off after twelve years, the old fireworks are still there.

Things are about to go boom.

Stella London gets some devastating news about her boyfriend and her best friend. And things just keep getting worse, until she gets the offer of a lifetime from the most unexpected man.

~ Blurb ~

It should be the most shocking news I’d ever gotten—My boyfriend is getting married.

Okay, technically he’s my ex-boyfriend. Two months ago he decided he wanted a break. I still thought he was my happily ever after.

On any other day, knowing he was gone for good would be the worst thing that could possibly happen.

But not today.

Because not only is my boyfriend getting married—his bride is my best friend.

And they’ve sent me an invitation.

There’s no way I’m going to attend. I don’t care if it’s in beautiful Scotland.

Nothing and no one could convince me.

Not even when a deliciously handsome stranger tells me he needs to go as my plus one.

Not even when he shoots me a wickedly, sexy smile.
But then he offers me the opportunity of a lifetime—a dream come true. How can I say no?

But I have one condition. He has to be my new boyfriend. I mean, my pretend new boyfriend.

I’m about to find out that faking it can be a whole lot of fun.

Review: BROKEN KNIGHT by L.J. Shen

Broken Knight (All Saints High, #2) 

Title: Broken Knight
Author: L.J. Shen
Publication Date: August 18, 2019
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I don’t know what to say about this book. I am at a loss for words at how this book, with all its pretty words, affected my life. My soul, really. So, here I am, laying it all out.

This book will forever go down as one of the very few books that I will NEVER forget. This book is right below Making Faces by Amy Harmon for me, which I read years ago and still cry about. It left beautiful scars that I will look back on and remember every emotion these characters brought out in me. There are several issues addressed in this book, and every single one of them was written with truth and grace. How this author can layer these characters to a point that you forget they are not real people is beyond me.

Ms. Shen didn’t simply write a book. She poured her heart and soul out on these pages. And it shows. As I sit here writing my review for this heartbreakingly amazing book, I have tears streaming down my face. Tears that cry for everything this book is. The loyal friends, the utter devastation heartbreak brings and the cherished childhood memories that will never be forgotten while making new ones. Ride or Die.

To be honest, I didn’t expect to love this book as much as I do or for it to affect me as much as it has. This book gave me allllll the feels! One of the best books I’ve read this year. All of L.J.’s characters are phenomenal, but these two hold a special place in my heart.

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.

Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.

Sweet.
Caring.
Charitable.
Quiet.
Fake.
Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language.
Who taught her how to laugh.
To live.
To love.
Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero.
Gorgeous.
Athletic.
Rugged.
Popular.
Liar.

This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna.

But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore.
When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes.

Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy.

Review: Bombshell by CD Reiss

Bombshell (Hollywood A-List, #1)Title: Bombshell
Author: C.D. Reiss
Publication: May 1, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another 5 Star Read by CD Reiss! This book gave me all the feels. It was heartwarming and real. I love how Ms. Reiss can write her characters so well that I am emotionally vested in every aspect of what is them.

Brad Sinclair is living the busy life of an A-list actor. He’s hot on and off the screen and to his surprise, he’s also a father. When Nicole’s mother suddenly dies in a car accident, social services comes knocking and drops his five year old daughter off on his doorstep. He has no idea what to do with this spunky five year old and immediately makes the call for a nanny.

This little girl stole my heart. Nicole was sweet and funny and I just couldn’t get enough. She’s also a little messy.

Cara is called in as the new nanny for Hollywood A-lister Brad Sinclair. She’s professional and has no time for nonsense. But she can’t help falling for this little bombshell. I loved that her and Nicole bonded so fast. And when things heat up between Brad and Cara, this entitled playboy is willing to change his ways to have both his girls in his life. She just hopes their relationship won’t crash and burn in the tabloids.

*Reviewed on April 16, 2017 (Goodreads)

synopsis lips

From New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss, a standalone romance about a nanny, a Hollywood star, and a love they never expected.

Hollywood bad boy Brad Sinclair always gets his way, whether it’s the role he wants or the bikini-clad model he has to have. But when a bombshell gets dropped in his lap in the form of a dimpled five-year-old from a forgotten relationship, he knows his life is about to change forever.

Cara DuMont isn’t exactly thrilled when she gets assigned to be the nanny for the latest box-office king. She has one rule: no celebrity fathers, especially single ones with devilish good looks and rock-hard abs.

But as soon as Cara meets Brad and his adorable little girl, she knows she’s in for a world of trouble. Because there’s something about the way Brad looks at her that makes her believe that some rules are meant to be broken…

Review: Risky Play by Rachel Van Dyken

Risky Play (Red Card, #1)Title: Risky Play
Author: Rachel Van Dyken
Publication: March 19, 2019
Genre: Sports Romance
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This author is a 1-click for me. Every single book is enthralling.

Mackenzie DuPont and Slade Rodriguez had amazing chemistry, even if Slade was doing everything to push her away. I get it, kind of. He was hurting before he met her, then started falling for her, because let’s face it, Mack is ah-mah-zing. Then when tragedy strikes, he blames her because he needs to place blame somewhere.

Poor Mack. Mackenzie didn’t plan on meeting this amazing while on her way to her honeymoon destination alone after being left at the alter. One fake name and several adventures later, she was heartbroken for a second time when the amazing man she was getting to know disappeared without a word. Taking what was left of her heart and her virginity with him.

Slade needed to get away and in the process started falling for the innocent woman who made him feel alive again after a public scandal rocked his world.

“I realized I would do anything to make this stranger smile at me like that again. One. Day. In.”

But one bad phone call and he took off without a backward glance siting she was to blame. Color them both surprised when she becomes his new assistant!

I can’t get enough of these characters. There were a couple of times I gasped thinking I had figured it all out only to be completely surprised by the events unfolding. And others that had me giggling like a fifteen year old boy.

“Damn, you need a keeper.”
“Just sent the flowers, alright?”
“And the note? What should that say, ‘Please don’t press charges, my dick knows not what it does?'”

This book was sweet and full of emotion. These two characters couldn’t be better matched, only if they would both forgive and forget. If something is worth having, it’s worth fighting for. I can’t wait for the next book in this engrossing series!

“Name one thing you would have done differently.”
“One thing,”
“Just one.”
“I already did it-I kissed you. And then I jumped.”

synopsis-lips copy

Even one-night stands deserve a second chance in New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken’s novel of sporting desire.

What else can a virgin do when she’s ditched at the altar? Seattle heiress Mackenzie Dupont is treating herself to a single-girl honeymoon in Mexico and a desire to relinquish her innocence to a gorgeous one-night stand. Fake names. True pleasure. But when she wakes up alone, Mackenzie realizes just how much anger is left in her broken heart.

Suffering a tragic personal loss, pro soccer player Slade Rodriguez has his reasons for vanishing without a goodbye. Right or wrong, he’s blaming the beautiful and infuriating stranger he never wants to see again. They’re both in for a shock when Mackenzie shows up as his new personal assistant. And they both have a lot to learn about each other. Because they share more than they could possibly know, including a common enemy who’s playing his own games. And he’s not afraid to get dirty.

Now there’s only one way Mackenzie and Slade can win: to trust in each other and to stop hiding from the lies they’ve told, the secrets they’ve kept, the mistakes they’ve made, and the attraction that still burns between them.
