WWW Wednesday | May 24th

Hello loves! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday…or at least one better than mine! My goal was to get caught up on reviews and get some posts scheduled for this week. However, my grandmother was rushed into emergency surgery this morning, so I spent most of my afternoon at the hospital! I feel like I haven’t been posting much these past couple months, but don’t worry I am still here. It is just hard because I swear my husband has a new found addiction to League of Legends (that seriously drives me crazy) and so he is always on the computer. Anyways…enough about my personal life. It is Wednesday which means it is time to give you guys a recap of what I have been reading lately.

The Wright Boss by K.A. Linde | Review Blitz

 

TWBoss iBooksA new stand alone office romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I’ve always had one rule:

Don’t mix business and pleasure.

But then Landon Wright comes home to his family’s construction company with a broken back and a beaten heart and ends up as my new sexy boss. As the office gets heated, I’m thinking about throwing the rulebook out the window.

If only there weren’t a million reasons this could never work.

We may have shared a single perfect kiss, but I can’t let our intense connection cloud my judgment. Not with everything I’ve worked for on the line.

Dating your boss is so very, very wrong…even if he feels so Wright.

 

 

 

 

Review

The Wright Boss is the second “Wright” book, and while still considered as a standalone, I do feel that it could be considered a series. The first one is Jensen and Emery’s story titled The Wright Brother, and you can find my review for it here.

Damn them Wright brothers though!!! Like seriously where is mine?? Can I please have one cause they are F-I-N-E.

So, The Wright Boss is the story of Landon and Heidi. Landon, is a professional golfer who is dealing with a career changing injury, and also struggling within his marriage. Heidi is Emery’s best friend and an employee of Wright Construction, a job that is the number one thing in her life. Heidi and Landon’s “thing” started up prior to this book, so they already had some flames flying. However, Landon was trying to make things work with his wife, so he cooled things off. But Heidi and Landon just can’t seem to stay away from each other, and once Landon realizes that his wife is not who he think she is, all he seems to want is Heidi. The Wright Boss is a slow burning, friends-to-lovers book that also adds in the element of an office relationship.

Now, as I said I LOVE me some Wright men. K.A. Linde sure knows how to make em! I really did enjoy this book. It was fun, sexy as hell and most definitely a slow ride as far as relationship development. I felt that Heidi and Landon took their time getting to the relationship point, but it was a good development. The progression of their relationship was perfectly timed to their story and the things happening. However, it was one of those where it was one step forward five steps back kinda thing. I don’t think it deterred me though, it never got to the point where it got on my nerves.

Both of the MC’s in this are dealing with some problematic life issues. The contribution of both Heidi’s and Landon’s issues outside of the relationship really added a layer to this book. It gave it a depth that I think it truly needed, especially to set it apart from the sea of romance novels. We get to journey through the MC’s growth and development throughout the story, and it was so fun to get to see.

*****WARNING*****

*******Spoilers Ahead*******

Now, there is one major issue I can see readers having with this book. While I myself didn’t necessarily have a problem with it, I did see some people mentioning it. Timing. In this one we do get some time jumps, considering it is a slower paced evolvement and the face that Linde chose good parts to break, I could care about that. However, the entire story dose take place while Landon is still technically married. Now, like I said I didn’t really even think twice about this as he was in the process of getting divorced, however, I can seem some people getting upset about that. So if that is going to bother you, then I advise against picking this one up.

******END SPOILERS******

Overall I greatly enjoyed The Wright Boss, and I am looking forward to the next book from the Wright family, The Wright Mistake which is coming the beginning of August, I believe. I would highly recommend this book if you enjoy a friends-to-lovers book, or just a really steamy slow climb!!

Overall Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

By The Hour by Roni Loren | Tour & Review

Meet the Author:

Roni wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven’t improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has. If she’s not working on her latest sexy story, you can find her cooking, watching reality television, or picking up another hobby she doesn’t need–in other words, procrastinating like a boss. She is a RITA Award winner and a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.

About the Book:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Off the Clock comes a story of love, hate, and the fire that ignites when the two collide…

Dr. Elle McCray has a plan. Work hard. Be the best. And do it alone. After her ex-husband’s betrayal, she’s learned being feared is a hell of a lot easier than being humiliated. So when trouble personified, Lane Cannon, dares to flirt with her, she shuts him down cold. Too gorgeous. Too cocky. And his job as The Grove’s sexual surrogate is to sleep with patients. No, thank you.

Former escort Lane Cannon has spent enough years with people looking down on him. Stupid. Trailer trash. Rent boy. He’s heard it all. He’s worked too hard to shed his past to let some haughty doctor cut him down. But something about Elle’s ice queen act has his dominant instincts perking up and his body taking notice. He can’t walk away.
After an evening of verbal sparring turns into a night of steamy hate sex, Lane’s ready for round two. But Elle proposes a business deal. How better to keep things strictly physical than to pay him for his services?
Lane wants her, not her money. But he’ll play along in exchange for one thing—all the control. It’s only supposed to be a dirty little fling between colleagues, but these two are about to learn a lesson in love…by the hour.

Review:

Okay guys, let me just start by saying I fan girl-ed the FUCK out when I found out I got to review By The Hour. Roni Loren is my all time favorite author…and 100% of the reason I have an addiction to romance. I haven’t read a Loren book I didn’t love ( and I have read them all). So seriously I was so excited to have the opportunity to review her new one! If I could bring all of Loren’s men to life I would seriously be in heaven… and Lane Cannon was no different! Really though, every book Loren does is just an instant hit with this girl so it is no surprise that I LOVED By The Hour!

We meet both Elle and Lane in Off The Clock, the first book in this series, and I have to say while I loved Lane from the get go I was not a big fan of Elle. Lane is the smokin’ hot sex surrogate that works on the X-wing at The Grove. He is one of those people you just can’t help but love, he is kind hearted and genuine, even though he has come through quite the past to get to where he is today. Elle McCray is the ice queen, as the head doctor in the rehab unit, she has a reputation that makes even the her co-workers run. After a failed marriage, she turned her heart into a fortress and refuses to let anyone in. Her career, and maybe some hate sex every once in a while is all she needs to keep her going. The chemistry between these two is OFF THE CHARTS…I thought my kindle was going to go up in flames! What starts as hate sex quickly becomes so much more between these two.

I love Loren’s writing style, she creates such amazing characters and stories it is hard not to fall in love with each one. While the Pleasure Principles Series, Off the Clock and now By The Hour, are significantly tamer than her Loving on The Edge Series, Loren still manages to give us a steamy hot read with a little bit of kink mixed in. The relationship between Elle and Lane was such an explosive one. There was so much hate and anger driving them to begin with, but as they learned each others story you see the utter passion come through. Loren did such a phenomenal job and taking Elle from one of my most disliked characters in any of her books, to one of my favorites. We finally get to understand where she was coming from and what made her the infamous ice queen she is today. Her story was heartbreaking, although, in all honesty probably one of my favorite backstories out of all Loren’s books. We also get to glimpse more into Lane’s past, from prostitution to sex surrogate he journey is also one that I enjoyed.

This book was amazing, it’s steamy, and sexy, and a little kinky…but overall it is a epic love story about what happens when you finally let yourself open up. I am so glad that Loren decided to give Lane and Elle a book. If you haven’t picked up this book yet you most definitely should get it on your list!

Overall Rating: 5/5 Sexy Stars!

Revelry By Kandi Steiner | Book Blast With Review

Revelry, an all-new standalone from Kandi Steiner is available now!!!

Revelry Cover_FINAL.png

From the bestselling author of Weightless and A Love Letter to Whiskey

Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.

She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t.

Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.

Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost.

He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.

Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.

Available Now Square-01

Review:

 

“Sometimes we get so far down a path because we want nothing more than for it to be the right one, but the truth of the matter is we can’t force it to be.”

 

Let me start out by saying that I love Kandi Steiner, I am a HUGE fan of A Love Letter To Whiskey, so naturally I was super excited to read this book. Not only that…that blurb? That cover? How could you not want to pick this one up? I mean seriously! Steiner is know for playing your heartstrings like a musical instrument, and Revelry was no different. Revelry is the story of two broken souls coming together to mend each other. Wren is a newly divorced city girl, who has lost not only her husband but also herself and her inspiration. Anderson is still struggling to heal from a tragedy that occurred 7 years ago. These two are such a broken pair, but that is what makes their story so beautiful. Revelry pulled on all the heartstrings…as well as maybe touched a little close to home. I am also someone who is struggling to find herself in this crazy chaotic world. The love that unfolds between Wren and Anderson while Wren’s summer is spent in the small cabin town, is truly magical.

There are some romances you read because they are steamy and sexy, and there are some romances you read that change your life and way of thinking. Revelry was the later. Now don’t get me wrong Revelry had all he benefits of a sexy romance as well, but the story of Wren and Anderson finding each other and themselves was an experience to hold dear, and it is about so much more than just the physical connection.

“So fall apart. Cry, throw things, remember the good times and the bad and then let them go. And before you close your eyes, each and every night, forgive yourself.”

Wren is such a strong female character. Yes, she may be struggling with the aftermath of a divorce and navigating her life. Yes, she may be completely lost in life. But in all honesty that is what makes her so strong. The fact that she had the strength to walk away and choose what was best for her, even in a moment that may have been calling her a different way. She is real and true, and very seldom do I come across characters that I can see so much of myself in.

Anderson…oh, my Anderson. He has been dealing with grief for so long that he doesn’t even know how to live life without it. He is just on auto-pilot going through the motions of each day. His character is written so incredibly well. You feel all of his pain and struggle…ever.single.bit. And all you want is for him to escape the shell he has locked himself in.

Not very often do I bring up supporting characters in reviews, mainly because I feel that they are just that supporting characters. However, the supporting cast in Revelry was anything but. Momma Von, Ron, Yvette, Julie. They were all stories of their own, they had each presented a different love relationship through their story. I fell in love with each supporting character as much as the MC’s. It brought the book together so well and you really are emotionally involved with each characters story.

“I wasn’t broken, though I had been bent and bruised.”

Revelry pulled on every possible heartstring I have. It was an emotional ride. Steiner did such a phenomenal job with the story and the writing. I seriously give her props! Not many books have the ability to leave such a mark on my heart, but she has managed to do so twice, and for that alone she deserves an award. If you haven’t picked this one up to read, then seriously you need to. No matter where you are in life, there is something to connect and learn from with in this story. Really though, this needs to be added to your TBR, even if you aren’t a romance junkie like me.

Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).

When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
