Man Hands by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby


Release Date: 12.11.2017


Synopsis:

He puts the "screw" in screwball comedy...

BRYNN

At thirty-four, I’m reeling from a divorce. I don’t want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn’s Dips and Balls.

But my friends aren’t having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I’m still taking a hard pass. 

Free designer cocktails, they say. And that’s a game-changer. 

Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That’s when I lose my mind. But when my besties dare me to leap on the first single man I see, they don't expect me to actually go through with it.

TOM

All I need right now is some peace and quiet while my home renovation TV show is on hiatus. But when a curvy woman in a red wrap dress charges me like she’s a gymnast about to mount my high bar, all I can do is brace myself and catch her. What follows is the hottest experience of my adult life. 

I want a repeat, but my flying Cinderella disappears immediately afterward. She doesn’t leave a glass slipper, either—just a pair of panties with chocolate bunnies printed on them. 

But I will find her.


Review:


I had so much fun reading this book I stayed up all night to know how Brynn and Tom's story would have ended.

I liked all the characters,especially when they act silly making me laugh out loud more than once.
Brynn and Tom relationship is really a whirlwind of crazyness,hard kisses,sweet kisses,balls,dips and so much delectable sex.

I think the authors made a good work with this rom com and I'll definitely get the next book.

The British Knight by Louise Bay


Release Date: 12.03.2017


Synopsis:

When I’m offered the chance to leave New York to live in London for three months, I can’t pack my suitcase fast enough. 

As soon as I touch down I’m obsessing over red telephone boxes, palaces and all the black cabs. 

But my favorite place is the tube. It’s wall-to-wall hot British men in suits. 

When I’m offered a temporary job working for a barrister, I say, sign me up. 

On my first commute into work, it’s a total accident when I lose my balance and fall against the most handsome Brit alive. He’s as charming as James Bond and as suave as Mr. Darcy. I want to lick tea from his hard abs and listen to his accent all night long. 

Turns out Mr. Handsome is my new boss. And his attitude isn’t as hot as his gorgeous face, broad shoulders and tight ass. He’s brooding, short-tempered and the most arrogant man I’ve ever met. 

As we’re fighting, out of nowhere he kisses me. And I’m pretty sure I see fireworks over Big Ben and hear God Save the Queen. 

I wasn’t looking for the fairytale but I might have found my knight in shining armor. The problem is he lives an ocean away.


Review:


I loved this one...it was perfect for me,from the captivating cover to the description of some enchanting places I didn't know they were in London.

Violet and Alexander are so different from each other,the first is a feisty american woman who lives in the moment,the other is a stiff british barrister who has the goal to be the best at what he does.Their journey was so enterteining.I liked to see their best features rub off on each other making them and their relationship grow page after page.

I always enjoy this author work...Louise Bay please keep them coming!!I'd like to read Darcy's happily ever after too.

Excerpt:

Alexander:

My workout this morning had been punishing. The harder I worked, the harder I worked out. I was a big believer in that if I wasn’t physically fit, I couldn’t perform as well in my job. And I was willing to do whatever I had to do to be the best barrister I could be. As a result, I’d been up since five, worked out until six thirty, and then had a conference call with Dubai at seven. I hated days when I was late into the office, but this morning couldn’t be helped. My commute had been . . . unusual. The woman I’d knocked into while getting off the tube had been beautiful, and I couldn’t keep the image of her gazing up at me in the middle of Lincoln’s Inn Fields out of my brain. I needed to focus. And perhaps get laid when I got the time. But it wouldn’t be tonight. I’d be working. I had hundreds of witness statements to go through and my opening statement to draft.

In three days, I’d be in court, and that was my sole focus. There was no time to be wasted on fantasizing about women.

As I trawled through my emails, trying to pick out the important ones from the hundreds littering my inbox, someone knocked at my door. I resisted the temptation to growl. I hated being interrupted—I needed a sign for the door.

“Come in,” I barked.

The door swung open, and I could tell by the footsteps that the head clerk had swooped in. “Mr. Knightley.”

“Craig.” I didn’t take my focus off my laptop screen. Craig was an avuncular and charming man in his mid-fifties. He’d been in the business since he was fifteen and had clerked my father. If anyone could interrupt me, he could. And he knew it. Over the years, I’d tried to get him to call me Alex, but he insisted all the clerks and admin staff call the barristers by their surnames. The bar could be a very old-fashioned place.

“I want to introduce you to your new assistant, Violet King.”

I paused, my fingers hovering over my keyboard. I knew nothing of this and would never have agreed to it—I worked alone. Slowly, I turned to find Craig in front of my desk, his eyebrows raised in expectation.

“My what?” I asked. A figure moved in beside him and I slid my gaze to the right. I found myself staring straight at the beautiful woman who’d invaded my thoughts since I’d arrived in chambers. What was going on? I looked away from her, sure that Craig would see my attraction to her if my eyes lingered over her for more than a split second.

Christmas with the Billionaire by Lila Monroe


Release Date: 11.30.2017


Synopsis:

Spice up the holiday season with the hilarious new holiday novella from Lila Monroe.

Dressing up as a sexy elf to sing Christmas hits isn’t exactly the glittering Broadway career I had planned. The only thing more humiliating than my outfit is coming face-to-face with Oliver Gage, the sexy big-shot theatre producer who just crushed my dreams. He’s arrogant, infuriating… and did I mention how sexy he is?

I’ve sworn never to get comfy on the casting couch, but when we’re snowed in together upstate, it’s looking like a pretty good place to spend the night. Soon, sparks - and my panties - are flying.

Who said Christmas only had to come once a year?


Review:


This was a nice and quick christmassy read.

Lila Monroe delivered a perfect novella,the characters are feisty and the air between them burns quickly leaving them hot even in the middle of a snowstorm.
I was enjoying Jill and Oliver story so much I would have liked it to be a long novel.
I expect to see them again in the next series along with Oliver's siter.

Meet me under the Mistletoe by Carla Burgess


Release Date: 10.27.2017



Synopsis:

Florist Rachel Jones might spend every day making beautiful bridal bouquets at her little flower shop, but her own love life is wilting as quickly as a bunch of dead roses.

Luckily, the arrival of handsome detective Anthony Bascombe, the new tenant upstairs is the perfect distraction! Although there’s a catch, Anthony isn’t looking for love – he’s looking for her ex-fiancé, Patrick…

But as the snow begins to fall and her little shop fills with mistletoe ready for Christmas, will Rachel manage to melt Anthony’s heart?


Review:



This was my first Christmassy book of the season and it was so good it put me right in the mood for more winter stories.

I liked Rachel,our heroine,she is depicted really well and her behaviour perfectly reflects that of a woman who's trying to forget a not so nice ex-boyfriend.Unfortunately everything is more complicated when said man is wanted by the police and a charming detective decided that Rachel is important to close the case.

The chemistry between Rachel and Detective Anthony Bascombe is clear since their first encounter but their relationship grows day after day with more affection being shown.

I would have liked to read an epilogue but I hope to see these characters again in the next book.

The Rivalry by Nikki Sloane


Release Date: 11.21.2017



Synopsis:

This tight end is at the top of his game. 

He’s good with his hands, even better with his sexy mouth, and the best at making me forget my own name. His—ahem—stats are perfect. 

But I can’t fall for him. 

He might be everything I want, all rolled into a glorious package of gridiron god, but there’s one teeny-tiny problem. The vile, loathsome team I’ve spent my entire life hating—my beloved school’s arch-rival? 

This guy is their star player.


Review:


WOW!!! I was completely engrossed in this book I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.
It was so good I really hope to see it on TV sooner or later.

I can easily relate to our heroine's doubts about starting a relationship with the "enemy" but I can also understand that a person who wasn't born and raised into a rivalry couldn't realize the extent of it.
I loved the chemistry that Kayla and Jay have from their first encounter and how their relationship is hot,funny and also easy when they don't talk about football.

This was my first Nikki Sloane's book but her writing is so good I can't wait to get to read her other works.
