You've Got Male by Lila Monroe


Release Date: 01.14.2019


Synopsis:

All's fair in love, war, and breakfast waffles... 

Zoey Rafferty dreams of becoming the food truck queen of San Francisco. She's building an empire whipping up delicious brunch treats - until the (annoyingly handsome) Breakfast Bandit starts stealing all her customers with his devious tactics and smoldering charm.

Cam Newsom never backs down from a fight. As far as he's concerned, let the best chef win. And so what if Zoey looks sexy as hell when she's all riled up? He wants a woman he can connect with - not have whipped cream spray fights in the middle of the street. A woman like his mysterious online pen-pal, who shares his culinary ambition, and burns up his screen with her flirty quips.

Soon, their competition is heating up the kitchen - and the bedroom. But when the famous foodie TV show Truck Stop rolls into town looking for a new reality star, all bets are off, as Zoey and Cam compete for the prize. But will their rivalry blow both their chances?

And what happens when they find it's not just their food on the line - but their hearts, too?


Review:


It's always a pleasure to read a Lila Monroe book,her writing can cheer me up even in the gloomier of days.

Zoey and Cam are the hottest thing on the food truck scene,their relationship grows through thick and thin because the competition is fierce but their connection,love for food and chemistry are even fiercer.

You've Got Male is a fabulous addition to this new series.It was so easy and effortless and enterteining to read and I recommnd it to all the fans of Chick Flicks movies.

The Bet by Natalie Wrye



Release Date: 12.30.2018


Synopsis:

It was supposed to be an innocent wager, a harmless game.

It turned out to be so much more.

Maybe that's because everything involving Violet Keats was so much more.

More frustrating.
More pain-in-the-ass.
More sexy than anything I'd ever seen.

You know what they say: All's fair in love and the law.

And what happens to Manhattan's toughest lawyer when she ends up on the wrong side of my bitter family feud should be no different...

Until one night changes everything.

I knew what taking this dangerous bet would do to her. 

What I never bet on is what taking this gamble would do to me... 


Review:


I've liked this story very much.

I found both the main characters really interesting,Violet and Heath are such strong characters with a lot of common features.Their relationship is an emotional tilt-a-whirl,they have ups and downs and it's a pleasure to read their banterings.

I've appreciated Natalie Wrye's writing style as usual.I like how she delivers her words,it seems like a tiny piece of the puzzle is shown word after word and the reader can't get distracted or he risks to miss the magic.A special mention should be given to the hot scenes that are always engaging.

I can't wait to get next book...hurry up please.

This was a festive,cozy,lovely and sweet read.

The attraction between them is immediately evident,from the first encounter, but Nolan's secret keeps him detached even if it isn't easy to resist to the lively Quinn and her family members.

I've really enjoyed Jill Monroe's writing,the characters are so well described you feel you've known them forever and you're invested in their happily ever after.

Release Date:12.12.2018


Synopsis:

With Christmas season in full swing, baker Regina San Valentino is up to her elbows in cake batter and cookie dough.

Review:


I've throughly enjoyed this read.
Christmas and Cannolis is a funny,sweet and cozy novel,Peggy Jaeger words will warm up your heart just before Christmas but they will also make you shed a few tears so be prepared and keep some tissues at hand.

I still believe at love at first sight so I adored Regina and Connor journey,the attraction and chemestry between them is immediately tangible but they also show each other their hearts and love.
The reader cannot not to wish them to find some happiness and be together for ever.

I'm an italian woman living in Italy and the San Valentino family was a bit much for me at the beginning but then page after page I've started to understand and also appreciate their exuberant, lively and protective behaviors.

A Timeless Christmas by Alexis Stanton


Release Date: 10.23.2018


Synopsis:

They’re from two different centuries, 
but they’re perfect for each other. 

Megan Turner is in love with the past. As a tour guide at a beautiful historic mansion, she tells visitors about its original owner, Charles Whitley. An inventor and businessman in the early 1900s, he rose from poverty to wealth…only to disappear without a trace.
Charles was always intrigued by the future. He just never expected to go there. But when he repairs a mysterious clock he bought on his travels, he’s transported to the twenty-first century, with his home decorated for Christmas and overrun by strangers.
Charles is determined to find a way back to his own era, especially when he learns about what happened after he left. But as Megan introduces him to the wonders of smartphones, pizza, and modern holiday traditions, they both feel a once-in-a-lifetime connection. Could it be that, somewhere in time, they belong together?
Review:


A Timeless Christmas is a beautiful,fabulous and interesting story that put me in a good Christmassy mood.

I found the plot really fascinating and intriguing.
I loved how Megan and Charles are so passionate and driven. Even if the first appreciates the past and its history and the latter always looks at the future their lives crash and cross and their relationship could only be descibed as magical.

It was the first time I've read an Alexis Stanton book but it definitely won't be the last.
I really liked her characters,they were perfectly portrayed and I grew attached to them from the start.I enjoyed her words so much I've finished this book so quickly I thought it was too short.
