Synopsis: 



/*
It all started with a bet and a little too much weed.

 

Vanessa never imagined she’d fall into a relationship with the one person she couldn’t, but an apple tastes a lot better when taken from the forbidden tree. Even though loving him might be illegal in some states, even though it strips her morals bare, she can’t stop herself from falling down the rabbit hole, so to speak.

 

No matter how hard she tries, Vanessa can’t walk away from Jace. Their bodies are like magnets, drawn together at every opportunity. Worse, it’s like they’re tied together with some invisible rope that just won’t break. If his mother, or her father, find out, there will be hell to pay.

 

 

But love conquers all, right? 

 

 

Vanessa would like to think so…

Excerpt

Just when I’d made my mind up to go to his room, my door creaked open. Stepping in, he shut the door behind him, clicking the lock in place.

All of a sudden it became difficult to breathe. 

I couldn’t tear my eyes from him as he sauntered to my bed, my heart thumping harder and harder with every step he took. When he stopped at the edge, he wrapped his fingers around the post, tapping a rhythm against the wood, a song without a melody, but it still did something to me…something I didn’t want to admit out loud. 

“Why must you incessantly fuck with my head Lessa?” 

I gulped and scooted back into my headboard. “I—I don’t know what you’re talking about.” 

He swung around the pole, his body covering it. His tongue snaked out; licking his lip in such a sexy maneuver goosebumps slithered down my arms. His gaze scorched me, the heat from it pooling right between my legs. I shifted, squeezing my thighs together. 

He noticed, his lips turning up into a smirk. “The game could’ve gone on. But, instead, you hid in your room for a whole hour. And for what? To teach me a lesson?” He paused, tapping his index finger against his chin. “Or maybe you wanted to make me realize what I’ve done. Guess what, though? I know exactly what I’ve done. I know we are in uncharted territory.” He paused, a humorous gleam shining from his eyes. “You can throw all the lessons you want at me, Lessa. It won’t make a bit of difference. I won’t give in, not until I get what I want. And that is to be deep inside you.”

At age twenty-nine, Piper Daniels is having the longest dry spell of her life. When she agrees to be set up on a blind date, she never expects it to end with the hottest sex of her life.
But when she discovers that her very well-endowed secret lover is also her new boss, heartless womanizer and cutthroat CEO Jackson Dane, she chalks it up to a one-time mistake and puts up her best professional front. But Jackson isn’t used to rejection, and if Piper thinks it’s going to be easy to move on from their tryst, she’s underestimated his determination.

Review-

Another great Misadventures book! This one was HOT hot hot! With these books I’ve found that the steamier the better.

Piper Daniels is in a dry spell and damn it if she doesn’t need to get out of it! Her sister sets her up a dating profile to get her out there. Enter a sexy man named Jackson Dane and that dry spell is over.

Man the chemistry in this book between Piper and Jackson was insane. Like full on fanning yourself hot. And boy can that man talk dirty and make you swoon.

Then Piper finds out he is her boss… Enter the Forbidden Romance trope. I don’t wanna say more and spoil it but there’s a nice little twist in there.

It’s very well written and I devoured it in just a few hours. As always, misadventures never let’s me down.

5 stars!

Misadventures with a Rookie
by Toni Aleo, New York Times bestselling author
Release Date: April 10th

Goodreads

#MisadventureswithaRookieRelease

Synopsis

Winning has always come naturally for stud ice hockey defenseman Gus “the Bus” Persson. On the ice or off, he’s never had any trouble scoring, racking up goals—and girls. As the best player in his rookie class and the number-one draft pick of the Malibu Suns, he’s taking his game to the next level and is justifiably full of swagger.
So why does one of the Suns’ ice girls treat him like he’s invisible?
Bo St. James doesn’t have time for rookie hotshots who think their gloves don’t stink. She knows them, she works with them, she trains them. It doesn’t matter that Gus Persson is the hottest newbie she’s ever seen. She knows his type. She’s got big plans of her own, and she’s not going to let some cocky rich kid athlete keep her from her goals.
But there’s a chemistry between them they cannot deny. A lust that burns so hot, it threatens to melt the very ice on which they make their livings. The game has changed for both of them. Together, can these two play to win?

Review:

This is my first book by Toni, but it is my 9th Misadventure book. It was just as good as the others.

Gus ‘the bus’ is a hockey player who got drafted third to play in the big leagues, but the powers that be placed him with their farm team for a little more experience before going pro. It’s there he meets Bo, a fiery girl who he must have no matter what the cost. Only, Bo doesn’t want none of it. She’s attracted to his looks, and only his looks, but steers clear because of that “I’m a God” attitude.

Not gonna lie, I thought Gus was a total douche at first. Bedding a different girl every night, and says total douche things like “I don’t stick my dick in the honey pot more than once.” He sees women as objects to conquer instead of people. Boy did he have a lot of growing to do.

It seems I am not alone in this either after reading some other reviews. But like each of them said, the character really grows on you throughout the book. The way his parents raised him really starts to come out and we see that he can indeed have respect for a woman. Maybe it just takes the right woman. Cliche, I know, but still fun to read.

I have always loved the enemies to lovers trope, because it’s fun to watch them bicker and fight while we as readers know they are falling for one another, but they as characters don’t always see it. I tend to get shouty at these kinds of books. Actually, I tend to get shouty at most books.

Bo is funny and real and very feisty. She gives him shit more than anything. My favorite line of hers was, “My name? That’s all you want? Well, it’s Fuck Off.” Not gonna lie, I spit my drink out laughing. Then I thought, ohhhhh I should use that. LOL. (Like I’d ever need to!)

I really enjoyed her character the most. She had a lot of growing to do, facing her demons, just like Gus, but in the end… I was happy with where they ended up.

Of all 9 misadventures I’ve read, this one definitely ranks in the top 5 for me. Just under First Daughter.

Misadventures With My Roommate- Review

Misadventures with my Roommate

by Elizabeth Hayley

Releases: 27th March

Goodreads

#MisadventureswithmyRoommate

***MISADVENTURES ARE STANDALONE ROMANCES THAT CAN BE READ IN ANY ORDER***
Synopsis

Blake Monroe hasn’t had the easiest life, but she’s never been one to dwell on her misfortunes, preferring to see the world as a place where you get what you give.
Having had an especially troubling childhood, Blake’s aware she doesn’t exactly fit the definition of “normal.” Her lack of filter, dry sense of humor, and uncanny ability to read people make her rather unique—and difficult to live with. When her latest roommate has had enough of her antics, Blake decides living with a man might suit her better.
Gavin Gibson’s a dreamer whose artsy aspirations don’t meet the high expectations of his wealthy family. Cast off and cut off, Gavin needs a place to live. When he’s invited to share Blake’s quaint apartment, he cannot pass it up. With a knack for spotting the good in others, Gavin can see past Blake’s quirks—and neither of them can ignore their sexual chemistry.
As sparks fly, their genuine affection for each other grows, and Gavin begins to break down Blake’s defenses. But can Blake open up to reveal the damage she’s worked so hard to conceal?

Elizabeth Hayley is actually “Elizabeth” and “Hayley,” two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. The product is Pieces of Perfect, their debut novel. They learned a ton about one another through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly (much to their husbands’ chagrin).

“Elizabeth” lives with her husband, daughter, and nutjob of a dog. “Hayley” lives with her husband, son, and her own crazy dog. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.

Elizabeth Hayley’s writing motto is best captured by the words of Patrick Dennis: “I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind.”

Review-

So I’m gonna start this with the fact that going into the start of this book, I honestly thought that Blake was autistic. There’s a lot of things that hint towards it, and I thought to myself well if these two can pull it off, I’ve found myself a new favorite author…

Blake was not autistic. The reveal was definitely much different than that. I was a little shocked, as I was almost certain with the way she acted. But it wasn’t disappointing.

Now the chemistry… As with all misadventure books was hot hot hot. If you’re here for the sex, these books are for you. If you’re here for the story line, these books are for you. They aren’t just erotica, they are wonderful stories that stay with you long after you’ve read them… And they are steamy as all get out.

And I’ll tell you what, I really liked Gavin. He is the perfect book boyfriend. He is sweet as can be, and man is he into Blake. And who doesn’t love an artsy guy? Hello… Hot!

The author, well authors, are two chicks I’ve never heard of or read before, but I’ll definitely be checking out their other books.

As with all misadventures books, you won’t be disappointed.

Callan – Review

Callan
Sybil Bartel
(Uncompromising #5)
Publication date: March 20th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Callan

I was trained to be a hunter. Growing up in the nation’s most infamous, violent cult, my job was simple. Track. Kill. Survive.

And that’s what I did… until our leader threatened to kill his own daughter.

Refusing to watch another senseless murder, I did what I was trained to do. I took his life. Then I claimed his land, and set every member free, including her. I only had one goal left. Find the sister I was told was dead.

But being a hunter in the woods is a far cry from tracking a woman in Miami Beach.

I didn’t find my sister.

I found my stepsister.

Author Bio:

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.

To find out more about Sybil Bartel, be sure to follow her on Twitter (she loves to hear about your favorite book boyfriend!), visit her website, like her on Facebook or join her Facebook group Book Boyfriend Heroes for exclusive excerpts and giveaways.

Review:

This book was VERY different from what I am used to by Sybil Bartel, but man oh man did I LOVE IT!

Callan, a man who grew up in a crazy religious cult, while he did not change much through the book, he still did it for me. (I have a new book boyfriend guys! and this one is gonna stay with me for a while…. plus did you notice he did not utter one F*#$ through the entire book???? what????)

He was insane… legit… because of his upbringing… but he was so male and alpha I found myself swooning despite the crazy.

Emily, the girl no one noticed twice, self conscious and innocent, man I really liked her. She did a lot of growing in this book, and I love it when you can watch as characters grow. It was so fun to watch her grow into herself and become who she was always meant to be.

Let’s talk about the possessive nature Callan showed over her. At first, not gonna lie, I was like umm heck no dude not cool, but as we got further into the book I realized that that was who he was. It was what he knew. He was doing it because he loved her. And boy did he love her.

The chemistry was OFF THE CHARTS burning on every page sizzling in a slow burn. Speaking of which, Sybil doesn’t normally do slow burn.. and she wrote it well. I found myself almost begging the book to just hurry up with it already.

I loved the cameos of previous characters… Especially that of Andrè… He is a total swoon.
I think this is my favorite yet in this series. Sybil Bartel never disappoints. Can’t wait for the next one!

EXCERPT REVEAL

“I…” The words lodged in my throat. I
wanted to go to college with Kyle. To be at his side. To be his everything. And
there had been a time when I felt that I was. But he was hiding something. I’d
suspected as much for a while now.
Water sprayed around us and Lo and I
shrieked as the guys, wet from the waves, howled with laughter.
“Jesus, Kyle, you got us all wet.”
“That’s kind of the point, babe,” he said
around a breathtaking smile and heat pooled low in my stomach. God, how I
missed that, feeling close to him. “Come for a swim?”
“Lo?” I turned to my friend, but she was
preoccupied with Maverick. “We’ll be in the water.”
Kyle pulled me up and wrapped me into his
arms, peppering my salty skin with warm wet kisses. “You know I love you,
right?” His declaration seeped into my bones, washing away some of the
lingering doubts.
“I know. Now last one in buys ice cream.” Ripping
out of his hold, I took off in a spray of sand and air. It didn’t take him long
to catch up. His arms went around my waist and we stumbled into the ocean in a
tangle of limbs.
“Kyle!” I scolded, running two hands over
my hair to drain off the excess water but when my eyes landed on his, my legs
clenched together. “What?”
Eyes fixed right on me, Kyle stalked toward
me through the water. When he reached me, he dipped down, snagging my hand and
pulling me with him. My legs went around his waist as his arms steadied me and
he moved us deeper until the water reached my shoulders.
“Kyle, you’re freaking me out right now.” I
quickly scanned the area around us. People were minding their own business.
Groups of kids enjoying their summer break. The odd family chasing their
toddlers in and out of the gentle waves.
“I just need a minute.” He rolled his hips
into me and I understood his words the second something hard connected with my
stomach.
“Seriously.” I slapped his chest. “Here? In
the middle of a crowded beach.”
“It’s not like I can help it. Have you seen
you?”
Rolling my eyes, I fought to hide the smile
tugging at my lips. “You’re a pig.”
“But I’m your pig.” He gave me no warning,
slamming his mouth to mine. I gasped at first, overwhelmed by the intensity of
his kiss, but as soon as his tongue traced the seam of my lips, my body
relaxed. The familiarity of his touch soothed some part of me. Kyle’s fingers
pressed into the flesh around my hips, searching, seeking, as our tongues
swirled together.
“Kyle, I…”
“What?” He broke off the kiss, touching his
head to mine. “What do you need?”
Our eyes locked, and I saw the secrets
glittering in his eyes, a reminder of his betrayal. I didn’t doubt he loved me,
I didn’t doubt his loyalty to me, but Kyle was keeping something from me. So
why didn’t I push it? Why didn’t I demand answers? The truth?
“I love you,” I rushed out, sealing my
declaration with a kiss to his lips. Hungry and desperate, he kissed me back,
his tongue licking and stroking every inch of my mouth.
“Wahey, get some, Stone.” A chorus of
cheers broke out around us and I buried my face in his shoulder.
“At least one of us is, Berrick,” Kyle
yelled back to his friends. Maverick’s basketball friends, to be precise. But
Kyle fit in just as easily. Even though he was a year their junior, even though
he was a Stone, not a Prince, they still loved him.
Everyone loved him.
That was half the problem. When we went off
to college and he joined the Trojan’s football team, and the USC masses joined
the Kyle Stone fan club, where did that leave little old me? At least people
knew me here. I’d grown up with them. I wasn’t only Kyle Stone’s girlfriend,
but if I followed him to USC, it was a label I wouldn’t be able to shake.
“I’m going to go say hi to the guys,”
Kyle’s voice ripped me from my thoughts. “Want to come?”
“No.” I forced a smile untangling myself
from his body. “You go.” I started to swim back to shore, but his voice stopped
me mid-stroke. “Laurie?”
“Yeah?”
“It’s you and me. You know that, right?”
Trey Berrick launched himself at Kyle and
the two of them disappeared underneath the crystal blue water. With a resigned
sigh, I walked the rest of the way back to the beach. Maybe it was a good thing
I didn’t get time to reply because what would I have said? That I didn’t know?
That I knew there was something coming between us? That as long as he had
football there would always be
something coming between us?
I didn’t want to be that girl: insecure and
jealous of her boyfriend’s future. But it was hard to love the very thing that
would one day take the person you loved more than anything, away from you.

Shopping For A Billionaire

Shopping for a Billionaire
Julia Kent
(Shopping for a Billionaire #1)
Publication date: June 2nd 2014
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Contemporary, Romance

When mystery shopper Shannon Jacoby meets billionaire Declan McCormick with her hand down a toilet in the men’s room of one of his stores, it’s love at first flush in this hilarious new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo / Google Play / Audiobook

FREE for a limited time only!

EXCERPT:

Whoosh! Whoosh! I flush both urinals, then rush over to toilet #1. Whoosh! I stand in front of the stall to #2 and get ready to flush that one.

I’m in my own little world and let my guard down to ponder the question. I am also exhausted and most definitely not in top form, because I let a few seconds go by before realizing that someone is coming in the bathroom. Out of the corner of my eye I see a business shoe, and that becomes a blur as I scurry into one of the stalls and shut the door.

Heart pounding, I stare at the dented back of the stall door. Then I look down. Chipped red nail polish peeks up at me from my open-toed navy shoe. Aside from being outed as a transgendered person in here, there’s no plausible reason why any men’s room stall occupant should have red toenails.

I quickly scramble to perch myself on the toilet, feet planted firmly on either side of the rim, squatting over the open bowl like I am giving birth. Because I am genetically incapable of balance—ever—and as my heart slams against my chest so hard it might as well be playing a djembe, I lean carefully forward with one arm against the back of the stall door, the other clutching my phone.

The unmistakable sound of a man taking a whizz echoes through the bathroom. I can’t help myself and look through the tiny crack in the door.

It’s Mr. Sex in a Suit, his back to me. Thank goodness, because if I got a full-frontal shot right now, then how would I answer the “aesthetically pleasing” question from a strictly professional standpoint?

The tiny bit of shifting I do to peer through the crack makes my right foot slip, and I make a squeaking sound, then lose my grip on my phone as my arm flails.

Ka-PLUNK!

You know that sound, right? I know, and you know, that I’ve just dropped my smartphone in the toilet, but he thinks the man—he assumes it’s a man—in here just delivered something the size of a two-hundred-year-old turtle into the toilet.

I look down. My phone is still glowing, open to the question “Is the bathroom aesthetically pleasing?”
