Bombshell (Hollywood A-List #1) by C.D. Reiss

I think I’ve given every book that I have read by  C.D Reiss’s books 5 stars, except this one.  Now If you know this author, she is pretty clear that her books are NOT safe.

This book is kind of safe. This is a sweet book. I got goosebumps in the epilogue. I never get goosebumps. I love how Brad grows into fatherhood, and the support he received for doing what was right.

Brad is an actor who is a playboy, but he’s also a country boy who you can’t help but fall love with.  He’s living the dream until he finds out he has a daughter. A daughter who just lost her mother and is in need of some love and support.

No Nanny will do, it has to be Cara. Cara is laid back, she’s kind of go with the flow. She loves her job. She tries to stay out of the limelight because of past history. So she made a rule, never nanny for celebrities. It’s for her protection, one wrong move and your on the front page.

Cara decides to break her rule, because let’s face it, Brad needs the help, and she can’t say no. Even though she keeps picturing him naked.

Now that really what this book is about. A Nanny who didn’t stand a chance, and an actor who has his world turned upside down by a little girl named Nicole.

The sex is steaming, the feels are good, and all in it was a cute book. For some this will be a 5 star read, for me its 3.5 , I liked it 🙂

 

The Hot Shot (Game On #4) by Kristen Callihan ***

Holy toothache that was sweet. 

giphy

Like almost too sweet.

I have loved this series since book one, so it was inevitable that I find one that I didn’t  like.

eh

It took me almost a week to read this book, and most of the time I devour a book in a day.

Now before I get into why, this wasn’t a fave. Let me explain why it might be yours. I loved Chess and Finn.

They have an easy banter between them, that kept me engaged and entertained. I loved the way they met. They are also sexy together.

The dirty talk came from Chess which was an interesting take, that I loved.

Finn is adorable, and love sick.

 It’s not that I didn’t like it because I did, I didn’t enjoy it as well as the others.

I was bored, I don’t know why it seemed to drag on for me, it just did.

There was something missing, or maybe it was just too much sweetness.

I’m not sure if this is as a spoiler or not because we all know the couple is going to have some form of fight, but the fight confused me. I read it twice, like what just happened?

Not my favorite, but it may be yours.

Buy Me, Sir by Jade West

I used to be obsessed with Jade West, not like Melissa is with  Alexander because that chick is coo coo.

crazy

I mean I was uncomfortable, and that’s saying something.

Alexander is into some hard core shit, but Melissa wants what he wants, she will do anything just to have him.

So basically we have 2 types of crazies who fall in love and have some kinky sex.

Now  Jade West can write a damn sex scene.

My problem wasn’t so much the writing or even the plot, it was just long.

Like way too long.

I was skimming to get to the good stuff. tenor

I know, I know party foul.

So it’s a solid 3 stars for me, long story but sexy nonetheless.

Take Me Back by Meghan March

Kat and Dane both have secrets, and keeping them has destroyed their marriage. Now their on a vacation to fix it. 10 days on a remote island.

This is sweet, action packed, quick read. 

People are going crazy of this book and I’m over here like…

eh

The back and forth from past to present  throws me off. So that could be why.

It was a little slow at first, but does pick up.

I guess my problem is I didn’t feel the connection between the Kat and Dane. I felt more of a connection between Kat and her best friend. Maybe that was the point?

It is what it is. Maybe it not you it’s me. 🙂

Dirty Doctor: A Novella (Steamy Coffee Reads #2) by Whitney G.

When it comes down to a book, we just want to escape and find sexy entertainment, well at least that’s how it is for me. This book did just that,

 It was sexy, and covered some doctor fantasies I didn’t even know I had.

Garret and Natalie are a perfect match, well at least that’s what the app says, but they haven’t met. When they do meet, it’s under professional circumstances.

So things get a little messy and Garret gets a little pissy. The sexual tension is on point and the banter is great.

So why 3 stars. It was kind of slow for a short story. It was like by the time we got to the action, the book was ending.

All and all, its a quick, sexy book.

Venom & Ecstasy (Venom #2) by S. Williams, Shanora Williams

The first half of this book was almost too sweet for me, and it fell flat. Thankfully it did pick up. This wasn’t as sexy as the first one. I still liked it, but I can’t pinpoint where it lost stars, I really did expect more from Draco.

bored

This book is about Gianna’s road to discovery and healing. We get a lot of answers about   Draco. While I expected more from Draco, I was even more disappointed in Gianna. She was supposed to be this strong vengeful queen. She kind of just fell in line, I mean she did act out, but not for the right reasons?

As a dark reader, I expect the heroine to fuck up, I almost look forward to it.

spankdon't make that face

Gianna really took to getting in trouble to a whole new level, and it kinda of set the rest of book, leaving us with a broken heart at the end.

I loved the writing, but I hated the way it ended, but I look forward to the next book.

Bound by Vengeance (Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles #5) by Cora Reilly

2.5 No connection Stars

So it looks like I may be the odd one out, but I was disappointed. fail

If I remember correctly, I didn’t really love the last book either, maybe the series is just over for me. I don’t know.

I’ve also been a bit of a book funk, my next read shelf is full of books that I own, but I haven’t been able to get into.

Growl ( hate that name), is the top hit man. Her feared, but not so much respected. He is known as the bastard child, well just bastard. There was something  endearing about him. While he was a “monster”, I wanted to hug him and show him some love.

Now Cara, she over thought everything, and I mean everything. I always have a problem with woman who bodies respond, but the mind doesn’t. Maybe because as a woman, if my brain isn’t in it, nothing is happening.

giphy1

Anyway, she spent most of the book caring what over people thought. Like really? None of those people cared about you, or helped you when life turned to shit.

Between Ms high and mighty, and Growl’s self loathing I didn’t feel a connection.

I mean maybe I’m being picky or harsh, but damn that woman. Lastly, what was with that ending?

I rounded to 3 stars because at least I finished this one. Sadly, it may just be time for me to give up on this series.
