The Sex Education of M.E. by L.B. Dunbar

Release Date: 08.22.2016 Synopsis: I’m forty, flabby, and frustrated. Don’t get me wrong, I have a good home, a decent job, and great children. I had a loving marriage for twenty years where we had our ups and downs. It wasn’t perfect; but it wasn’t awful.  Then he died.  After the grief took its course, and the reality of my life set in, I grew frustrated. It wasn’t the bills or the strug-gle to keep my interest in my work. It was life without a man – the only man I’d been with for twenty years. And before you go all feminist on me, it isn’t that I can’t be an independent woman, but there are certain areas where a man is necessary.  You need a fuck buddy, my friend said.  I didn’t even know what that meant.  Is it friends with benefits?, I asked.  Better, you don’t even have to be friends, she offered.  Boy, did I need an education in the modern workings of dating, and sex. Review: I want to start this review telling you that this sto

When we were together, The chaos turned to desire, Need. Bliss. I was his. He was mine. For the time-being. Different countries. Different worlds. Just sex. No strings attached. That's how Boyd Rivers wanted it. And exactly how I liked it. But sometimes, fate has other plans... Can it really be not about love? **Not About Love is the second book in the "This Love" series, but can be read as a standalone.** Review: I've really enjoyed this story.It is interesting and entertaining from beginning to end. I have to admit while I liked Ella and Lou's journey, I adored Boyd and Ally's even more...their phisical chemistry and funny bantering make their story a perfect summer read. Hilaria Alexander writing is so easy to read that you will finish this book in no time and it wil

Something So Right by Natasha Madison

Release Date: 08.01.2016 Synopsis: The moment everything changed didn’t happen in that cliché rockets-red-glare kind of way, it happened in the form of a waking nightmare. I caught my husband, my high-school sweetheart, the father of my children, balls deep in a sordid affair. That was when I gave up on men and love.  I didn’t count on the NHL’s golden boy, the beautiful, arrogant Cooper Stone turning my life and my hockey rink upside down. My kids are why I wake up in the morning. Hockey is what Cooper breathes for. We’re from different worlds and places in our lives but when our hearts collided something so wrong and different turned into something so right.

Natasha Madison writing reminded me of one of my favorite hockey romance author,not for the story contents but more for the similar feelings she gave me while reading it. I lik
