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.






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.


*******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!!

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.

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!

Paper Fools by Staci Hart | Blog Tour with Review


In the game of love, she never loses.


Paper Fools by Staci Hart is available now!!


Title: Paper Fools

Author: Staci Hart

Cover Designer: Quirkybird Designs

Photographer: Lauren Watson Perry

Aphrodite knows love — just don’t ask her to figure out her own mess.

Rather than deal with her sticky love life, she toys with the hearts of unwitting humans. It’s a little game she plays, and the stakes are high. Lucky for her, she’s just found the perfect match.

Lex is everything Dean needs, but he can’t have her.

It doesn’t matter that her eyes speak to a long forgotten part of him, or that her art and poetry touch his shredded heart. She’s off limits — crossing that line would implode his band and everything he’s ever cared about. There’s only one option: stay away from her, no matter the cost. Even if the price is his heart.

Dean is everything Lex wants, but she can’t take the risk.

The second she meets him, she knows her heart is in danger. She’s convinced it’s only attraction that has her hung up on the dark, quiet lead singer, but with every day that passes, she knows it’s more. It’s just that she can’t put her heart on the line. She won’t — love has never been worth the sacrifice.

If only they knew they were just pawns in a much bigger game. And in the game of love, Aphrodite never loses.

*Formerly titled Deer in Headlights, Paper Fools has been rewritten and reedited just for you.*


She reached into her bag, digging around in the black hole for her book, but looked up, sensing someone in front of her.

When her eyes locked on his, she froze.

They were the greenest eyes she’d ever seen, shocking and bright, rimmed by thick, dark lashes. His long face was graced with an elegant nose and wide lips bent in a crooked smile. And he was tall, really tall, with ebony hair that fell forward as he looked down at her. He pushed it back without seeming to think about it, but it still looked perfectly tossed, like he’d just rolled out of bed.

She realized she still hadn’t taken a breath and flushed as she fumbled and almost dropped her book.

“Uh, hi. I’m Lex.” She tossed her hand in a wave, hoping she looked casual.

He paused for a second, watching her with an expression she couldn’t quite place. The moment seemed to stretch on forever, and as she studied him, it dawned on her that he was amused. This unnerved her, even more so when it dawned upon her that it was exactly what he wanted.

“Hey,” he said, the timbre of his voice deep and full. “I’m Dean.”

Lex realized her mouth was open. And that he was smirking. And that he was dead sexy while he was doing it.

She closed her mouth and cocked an eyebrow, putting on her snark to hide the fact that he’d gotten to her.

“Dean, huh? I heard they call you Professor Panty Dropper.”

His smile stretched wider. “Oh, is that what they say?”

“They do.”

A tall blond, who she guessed was Roe, stood at the microphone, glaring at them. “Mic check, Dean.”

They stared at each other like idiots for a split second longer before Dean turned to pick up his guitar, and he took his place with the rest of the band. She watched him walk away and blinked a few times before turning to her bag again, not looking for anything in particular — she only wanted to keep her hands busy and her eyes off of Dean while she scraped her dignity off the floor.

I have absolutely loved every book I have read from Staci Hart. Seriously though her books are an automatic 1-click for me. So I was super excited to see she was releasing a new one. And from what I understand this book was already published under a different name, and Hart went back in and re-worked it and changed the title. But none the less, I was super excited to have the opportunity to review this. I went into Paper Fools fairly blind, I had read the blurb but had managed to kind of forget it by the time I started reading. I was surprised when I noticed that not only was this going to be a romance, but it was also going to have an element of Greek Mythology. Paper Fools starts out with a game between Aphrodite and Apollo, Aphrodite is trying to match the two main characters together, while Apollo is trying to keep them apart. Lex and Dean, our two main characters have some serious issues with love, but honestly the chemistry between them is out of this world. As the story plays out we not only get to watch the romance between Dean and Lex blossom, we also get to enjoy the story of the Gods as they mastermind this game.

Okay, so I’m not going to lie to you I was very skeptical at the get go, and it took me a little bit to get into this one. At first I wasn’t as draw into the storyline going on with the Gods, their backstory and things, and that seemed to be the majority of what I was getting. But as the book progressed I grew to enjoy that part quite a bit more. However, if there was one thing I could choose to change about this book, it would be the amount of focus on Aphrodite and the Gods. On the other hand, I was addicted to Lex and Dean’s parts of the story. Like seriously addicted. I kept reading to get to their chapters and parts. Their story was great, emotional, and raw. I think that Hart did such a good job developing each character, both human and God, in this one. Looking back, after some time to process the book, I really did love the book as a whole. It is such an original story and idea, and Hart handled it so well. The writing was in typical Hart style, and it pulled on my heartstrings as always. I was not disappointed in this at all. It is another win in the book for Hart, and I would highly recommend this. I am hoping that this evolves into a series and we get to watch Aphrodite challenge each of the Gods in her game of love.

Rough Around The Soul by Maria Monroe | Release Blitz with Review


Rough Around the Soul by Maria Monroe is NOW LIVE for only 99c!

RATS Amazon.jpg

Amazon US:
Amazon UK:
Amazon AU:
Amazon CA:





Gritty. Sexy. Taboo.

Melanie Cannon is troubled, desperate, and only eighteen. Taking the fall for a friend, she’s forced into a drug education class, which she expects to be boring as hell. Until Detective Jake Beck walks in as her instructor.

Jake knows it’s a mistake to get involved with a high school senior.

But their passion is undeniable.
Their bond is the kind that lasts forever.
Their connection is more than just lust.

Jake’s willing to risk it all—even when harsh betrayal and ugly secrets threaten everything.





Rough Around The Soul is the story of Melanie, a barley 18 high school senior, and Jake, a 25 year old detective who is teaching a drug awareness class. These two cross paths in a bar (Melanie has a fake…of course.) on her 18th birthday. Jake knows nothing about Melanie, until she shows up in the Drug Awareness class he is teaching. He is quickly caught in the spell that is this girl, he can’t seem to just walk away. Jake tries to fight it and not get involved, however, Melanie doesn’t really have anyone to turn to, and it is hard for him to just let her go. As the tension builds between these two so does their chemistry, which is off the charts by the way, and neither can fight it.

Okay, so this is the first book I have read from Maria Monroe, and I did enjoy it! I would pick up another of her books for sure. Her writing was well done and well developed. However, I was a little disappointed in this book, unfortunately. From the blurb I knew I was going to have to get my hands on this one, you know I’m all about a forbidden relationship. But I didn’t feel like this was what I was hoping it would be. The forbidden aspect, while there, was just not on the level I wanted it to be. Yes, Melanie is barley 18, and Jake is kind of her teacher, but I just don’t think that the relationship was as forbidden as it was made out to be. Maybe that is just the way I feel, but I was hoping for something a little more.  Maybe there wasn’t enough drama surrounding their relationship, or not enough on the line. Anyways, as far as characters go I quite enjoyed both MC’s. Melanie is a girl who has had a hard life, between a checked-out mom and a SUPER horrible best friend, however, she has still managed to keep her head on and has gotten a full ride to a great college. I feel for Melanie, she is strong and independent. And although she has some tough struggles throughout the book, she is overcoming all odds. Jake was also an enjoyable character, he is a detective on loan helping out his uncle. He is running from some family problems of his own. But you can tell he is a good guy, he is always looking out for Melanie…although at some points his antics get a little stalkery, I still enjoyed that he was one of the only people who genuinely cared about her.

Overall, I did enjoy Rough Around The Soul and would still recommend it. It just wasn’t what I had made it out to be. If you like a steamy sexy somewhat forbidden story. Then this book is for you.

Overall rating: 3.5/5

The Best Man by Barbie Bohrman | Blog Tour & Review


Today we have the blog tour for The Best Man by Barbie Bohrman! Check it out and grab your copy today!



Author: Barbie Bohrman

Genre: Contemporary romance

About The Best Man:

Veronica Webber is single again after being in a loveless marriage way past its expiration date. For the first time in a very long time, she feels free and after being burned so badly by love in the past, any thought of romance is the last thing on her mind.

In walks a man from her past, Trevor Allen, a tall, dark, and handsome womanizer who is usually all about the bottom line. For Trevor that bottom line has always been made up of the countless notches on his bedpost. But when he sees Veronica after so many years, he can’t help but be drawn to her and know her again… even if that means being friend-zoned from the start.

As this unlikely pair spends more and more time together, they quickly realize that there might be something between them that goes past “just friends.” But there’s just one tiny detail that makes this situation slightly more complicated… Trevor was Veronica’s ex-husband’s best man at their wedding nine years ago.

So when past mistakes and indiscretions come back to haunt them, will their happily ever after end before it even gets started?

Or will the best man win this time.

Amazon | iBooks | Kobo | BN | Goodreads!



** I received a copy of this book for review, and special thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR**



The Best Man is Contemporary Romance that follows Veronica Webber. Veronica has recently just divorced her husband after finding him cheating and has decided to move to New York City to try to find her way again. Trevor Allen is tall dark and handsome…he also has a list of conquests a mile long. However, the one girl he never really had a chance with was Veronica. He was best friends with her fiance…and happened to be the best man at their wedding. So when Trever’s brother drags him to a hipster bar one night, the last person he expects to see is Veronica. He can tell she needs a friend, and for some strange reason he has a compulsion to be this friend. But Trever has always know Veronica was different…and there is only so long these two can fight their chemistry.


The Best Man was a great read. It was a sweet story about love finding it’s way in the end. This is the first book I have read from Bohrman and I will say I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the connection between Veronica and Trever…from the first time they met, throughout their story, I loved the way their love unfolded. Yeah, it was a little of you typical bad meets right woman and turns good kind of story, but that isn’t always a bad thing. Tropes like this one are popular in romance for a reason, we all love to see a bad boy turn good. I LOVED Trever, he was swoon worthy and sweet all at the same time. I also enjoyed Veronica’s character quite a bit. She is kind of lost in life and trying to find her way, and for some reason I always seem to connect with those sorts of characters…maybe the universe is trying to tell me something about myself?! HAHA. Anyways, I liked that these two had a past and that not all of it was good. I think it added some good dramatic elements on top of the fact that Trever was the best man at Veronica’s wedding. I also think that Trever and Veronica’s love story had an added element of surprise to both of them. Neither one of them every thought that they would end up together…oh, but man did the universe have other plans. And DAMN their chemistry was off the charts H-O-T!!!

Overall, I enjoyed this book a lot. I think you definitely should one-click this one right away! I think you all will absolutely fall in love with Trever and Veronica’s story.

Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige | Blog Tour


Dirty Filthy Rich Men, an all-new sexy, contemporary romance from NYT Bestseller Laurelin Paige is available now!!!


Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige
Genre: Contemporary Romance

From NYT Bestselling author Laurelin Paige, discover a whole new world filled with sex, love, power, romance and dirty, filthy rich men.

When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.

I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn’t stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

And then what it was like to lose it.

Ten years later, I’ve found my way back. Back to their world. Back to him.

This time, I’m ready. I’ve been down this road before, and I know all the dirty, filthy ways Donovan will try and wreck me.

But it’s hard to resist. Especially when I know how much I’ll like it.



After she was gone, I walked over to the windows and drank in the scene. The Town Center was high enough that it had an unblocked view of downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn, and beyond.

Giddiness surged through me, starting like a pinprick at my center and moving out through my veins in all directions until even my fingers and toes felt warm.

I was really here.

I made it.

It wasn’t the way I thought it would be, but in the end, it still came out of my time at Harvard. I’d always known that connections made the difference in a career, and here I was. Finally. At the top of the world, looking out.

I couldn’t stop grinning.

“It’s incredible, isn’t it?” a male voice came from behind me.

Still smiling, I glanced up and caught his reflection in the window.

And everything disappeared.

The world that had buzzed below, the beautiful scene, the excitement that had unfurled through my body—all of it evaporated and all that existed in its place was a pale, hollow shell of myself and the man in the perfectly tailored suit behind me.

I turned to look at him directly. Our gazes smashed together, and my legs nearly fell out from under me.

“Donovan,” I rasped. It was a miracle that I managed to find enough voice to say that much.

And there was so much more that had to be said. So much more that I hadn’t prepared for. Which was ridiculous since I’d talked to him so many times in my head over the years, practiced so many conversations, but never did he show up out of the blue looking so dastardly handsome in a dark gray three-piece suit, his face rugged with scruff, his eyes hazel and earnest despite the playful smirk on his lips.

I opened my mouth to say something, but nothing came out. I wasn’t even sure how to breathe anymore.

He broke our gaze to nod out the window at the skyline, walking toward me as he said, “I’m sure you found the Empire.”

Though his focus was now on the scenery, I didn’t take my eyes off him as he approached. He didn’t stop until he was right beside me. So close our shoulders would touch if I coughed. Tension ran off him like foam spilling over from a mug of beer. Good tension. Bad tension. I wasn’t sure if there was a difference when it came to Donovan.

Which was why I was screwed if he was here.

Why the hell was he here?

“I thought you were in Tokyo.” I couldn’t stop staring at him. He’d gotten more refined with age, and rougher at the same time. His hair was short and his curls gone, giving him a polished look he lacked before. The lines by his eyes were more defined and his expression seemed harder than I’d remembered. It made him sexier.

As if he was a man who needed to be sexier than the one I knew.

“I came back two months ago,” he said offhandedly. “That’s it right there.” He leaned his face in close to mine as he pointed to the famous structure. “Do you see it?”

Fuck if I cared about the Empire. I was in Donovan Kincaid’s orbit. What else was there in the world?

Bad, Bad Girl by Alta Hensley is now LIVE
FREE with Kindle Unlimited!





How can it be wrong when it feels so, so right?

What happens when you are a very bad, bad girl?
What happens when he is so alpha that he demands complete surrender?
What happens when your body, mind, and soul betrays you?

You submit.
You utter the words you never thought you would say.
“Yes, sir.”

They should resist. They should say no. They should walk away and never look back.
But they won’t.
Three women. Three men. Three tales of carnal delight that push the comfort zone.

Includes: Traditional Love, Traditional Terms, and Traditional Change.

**bad, bad, Girl is an erotic romance that pushes the boundaries of taboo. It is far from a Traditional Love romance. There is graphic sex, there is content that will certainly make you blush, and there are scenes that could cause grandma to have a stroke.

Okay loves. My review for Bad, Bad, Girl will probably be pretty short. Bad, Bad Girl is a book made up of 3 different stories that fall in the same series. Not going to lie I didn’t really love this book. Not that it was a bad book by any means…because it wasn’t. It just wasn’t my cup of tea. I was warned going into this one that it would be dirty and would push my limits…which I mean really do I have any left at this point? But I didn’t really feel like that was true. Yes, it did broach a subject different from any other book I have read, Domestic Discipline. I think that the idea was great. Where this one fell short for me was that I didn’t really feel connected to the characters in any of the stories. No I didn’t think it was written badly or was a bad book, it may have been a little fasted paced for my liking at some points…but still it wasn’t horrible. I just feel like it wasn’t what I was expecting going in. That being said I definitely think that this book has an audience, and that for that audience this book was great and will be a hit. I just don’t think I am part of that audience unfortunately. This is a case of unmatched expectations.

Overall Rating: 3/5 Stars
