The Player Next Door by K.A. Tucker

53217674._SX318_-2Scarlet Reed has returned to Polson Falls, convinced that twelve years away is long enough to shed her humiliating childhood identity as the town harlot’s daughter. With a teaching job secured and an adorable fixer-upper to call home, things in her life are finally looking up.

That is, until she finds out that Shane Beckett lives next door.

Shane Beckett, the handsome and charismatic high school star quarterback who smashed her heart. The lying, cheating player who was supposed to be long gone, living the pro football dream and fooling women into thinking he’s Prince Charming. Shane Beckett, who is as attractive as ever and flashing his dimples at her as if he has done no wrong.

Scarlet makes it abundantly clear that old wounds have not been forgotten. Neighbors they may be, but friends they most certainly are not. She won’t allow herself to fall for the single father and firefighter again, no matter how many apologies he offers, how many times he rushes to her aid, or how hard he makes her heart pound.

But as she spends more time with him, she begins to fear that maybe she’s wrong. Maybe Shane has changed.

And maybe this time she’s the one playing herself—out of a chance at true happiness.

So…I was a K.A Tucker virgin before this book landed on my kindle. I think I have some of her books on my TBR, but I’ve never gotten around to reading them, which was a big mistake because K.A Tucker is da bomb! Wow, what a book. But I’m going to be honest with you, the heroine did get on my nerves for the first 30-40% of the book, but after that, I started to like her.

Our heroine, Scarlet Reed, has moved home after fifteen years. She has bought the house she always wanted and has her dream job as a teacher. Everything is looking up for her…until she sees her neighbor. The boy who broke her heart senior year, Shane Beckett, now a grown man with smug smiles and flirtatious personality. Scarlet is adamant about keeping distance between her and the boy who broke her heart, but that seems impossible when he’s always there, helping with the house, rescuing her from broken pipes and stoves that set fire.

What bugged me a bit was Scarlet’s inability to let go of the past. I mean I understand that he broke your heart, but that was so long ago, let it go woman! Oh and her jealousy when other women approached Shane after she rejected him.

Therefore I settled on four stars for this book because when she finally started to forgive Shane, I couldn’t put down this book.

If you’re looking for a steamy summer read, pick up The Player Next Door!

Carried Away by P. Dangelico

Sometimes going back home requires a big leap forward.

Carrie Anderson—truth seeker, storyteller, journalist-at-large—is bad at social media and great at getting herself into trouble.
When she’s fired from her dream job for an ill-advised tweet, she has no other choice but52871336._SY475_-2 to return to the town where she grew up with her head hung low.
It’s temporary after all. She can work at her family’s bed and breakfast, fix her finances, and get back to her life and home in Los Angeles.
There’s only one not-so-little problem…the grouchy ex-NHL star making her rethink what home means.

Jake Turner—great at hockey, bad at people—is not a happy man.
Haunted by his past, all he wants is to disappear into obscurity, to get away from the scrutiny of the press he’s been under since going pro at nineteen. But when the press finds him, disappearing is no longer an option.
Worse yet, the same journalist he’s trying to avoid is making him reconsider whether being forgotten is what he really wants.

P. Dangelico is one of my favorite authors. Her writing is spectacular; the words consume the reader, and it’s hard to put her books down. This book was no different, and when the cover was revealed, I knew I would love this book, just from that gorgeous cover!

Carrie Anderson has been fired from her dream job and therefore travels back home to her hometown to help her dad and nan with the family bed and breakfast. Moving home does not go as planned when she ends up on the side of the road, her car drowned in bunches of snow. After almost freezing to death, a man rescues her, however her saviour turns out to be the biggest jerk.


Jake Turner wants to be left alone. An ex-NFL superstar, now hated by the world, has escaped to Lake Placid to disappear. And then the reporter appears, Carrie Anderson. She’s everything he doesn’t need right now, or so he thinks.

I absolutely loved Jake and Carrie. They were amazing characters and their chemistry was fire; especially with Jake being such a grouch. If you’re looking to read a sweet, small-town romance with the perfect dose of steam, this one is for you.


The Change Up by Meghan Quinn

BREAKING NEWS: The Bad Boy of Baseball, Maddox Paige, is totally and utterly whipped. Okay, that might not be the headlines in the newspaper this morning, but it’s the reality 52992985._SY475_of my current situation.
It all started a month ago when I received a call from my best friend, Kinsley. She got a
new job in Chicago and needed a place to stay. I’ve known the girl since I was five, what harm would it be to have her stay at my place for a while?

Ha! Total disaster.

Now instead of going out every night with my teammates, I’m couch surfing and sketching endless photos of my best friend . . . but that’s the least of my concerns.
The disaster, you ask? I’m rapidly falling head over cleats in love with my best friend, my roommate, and my number one fan.

And she has no idea . . .

Meghan Quinn has never disappointed, and always delivers a book packed with steaminess and comedy.

➖ Bad boy hero, check
➖ An awesome heroine with a big heart, check
➖ Roommates, check
➖ Best-friends turned lovers, check check check


Maddox, the bad boy of baseball, and Kinsley have been best friends since they were five. And when Kinsley gets a job in Chicago, Maddox offers her his home until she gets her feet on the ground. Only he has a few ground rules:
No bringing over strangers.
No mess-making.
And NO four-legged friends.

What could possibly go wrong? With one of the hottest men in baseball and a woman to die for. Yeah, what could go wrong?

“Ahhh, Maddox.” Before I can even ask her why she brought Clyde with her, she throws her arms around me and pulls me into a hug. “Oh my God, did you make more muscles?” Make more muscles. Only Kinsley would phrase it that way.

I’m a fan of best friends to lovers romance but only if they’re done right. I hate when two people have been friends for so long and then one day, BAM, they’re in love. Meghan Quinn, however, knows just how to write friends to lovers. Nothing felt forced or uncomfortable between these characters. Their love for each other was so unique and had me turning the pages with a fucking smile on my face.

Cory just laughs, a good hearty laugh while he stares at me in disbelief.
“What?” I ask.
“Never in a million years would I have guessed that Maddox Paige, the bad boy of baseball, is a fucking softy with a heart. Nor would I have ever bet that you would come to me for girl advice.”

I loved Kinsley’s, big heart. Her love for animals and the world was amazing. The steam in this book is not what we’ve read in Meghan Quinn’s previous books. I will not spoil anything, but you’ll know when you read that one particular scene. I had to pick my jaw off the floor.

The side characters were great, especially Linc, Maddox’s friend. He had me laughing my ass off with his dialogue. I loved the friendship between all the guys and how they would give Maddox advice on how to win over Kinsley.

This book is one of Meghan Quinn’s best work. If you’re looking for steamy friends to lovers romance with great characters, this is it for you!



Falling For Her (The Callahans #2) by Monica Murphy

Jake Callahan. Prince of the popular crowd.
My mortal enemy.
Gorgeous. All the girls want him.
Quarterback. All the boys want to be his friend. He’s the most popular boy in the senior class.
And he hates me.51211852._SY475_
Or so I thought.
What I mistook for hatred turns out to be…interest. There’s that thin line, right? It makes me crazy. I can’t stand it. Attraction, chemistry, whatever it is, I also can’t resist it.
And neither can he.
Together, we make no sense. The odds are against us. His friends definitely don’t approve. I’m not a part of their crowd. Not one of the cool kids. I don’t fit in, or so they say.
But that doesn’t stop him from falling for me.

And it won’t stop me from fighting for him.


4 stars!

mademoiselle smut-9
First of all, look at that cover! It’s gorgeous. Second, Monica is a new to me author, and when I received this book on my Kindle, I dived right in.

Quarterback. All the boys want to be his friend. He’s the most popular boy in the senior class.
And he hates me.
Or so I thought.

In this book, we get Jake Callahan and Hannah Walsh’s story. The quarterback and the smart girl. When Jake’s friends push him to go talk to the girl sitting alone in the quad, he does just that. He will ask her to wear his jersey to the next game, and who would ever turn him down? No one.
So when Hannah coldly refuses, he’s shocked and humiliated.

Hannah is a ‘nobody.’ She hangs with her two friends Sophie and Marty, and they keep it low. Never attracting any attention. One day in the quad, she kind of overhears Jake’s friends dare him to approach her, and when he does, she’s furious. Never, in three years, has Jake even said one word or looked her way, and suddenly he’s there, asking her to wear his jersey. When she turns him down, she expects life to back to normal. But their crossed has passed, and this is how their story starts.


I read this book in one sitting, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The chemistry between Jake and Hannah was off the charts. If you’re looking for a sweet enemies to lovers romance with some angst, read this book!

[ARC] The Beau And The Belle by R.S Grey



Beau Fortier starred in most of my cringe-worthy teenage fantasies.

I met him when I was a junior in high school, a time that revolved exclusively around bad hair, failed forays into flirting, and scientific inquiries into which brand of toilet paper worked best for stuffing bras.

That is, until Beau moved into the small guest house just beyond my bedroom window.

A 24-year-old law student at Tulane, Beau was as mysterious to me as second base (both in baseball and in the bedroom). He was older. Intimidating. Hot. Boys my age had chicken legs and chubby cheeks. Beau had calloused hands and a jaw cut from steel. Our interactions were scarce—mostly involving slight stalking on my end—and yet deep down, I desperately hoped he saw me as more of a potential lover than a lovesick loser.

Turns out, I was fooling myself. My fragile ego learned that lesson the hard way.

Now, ten years later, we’re both back in New Orleans, and guess who suddenly can’t take his eyes off little ol’ me.

My old friend, Mr. Fortier.

But things have changed. I’m older now—poised and confident. My ego wears a bulletproof vest. The butterflies that once filled my stomach have all perished.

When I was a teenager, Beau warned me to guard my heart.

Let’s hope he knows how to guard his.

The QUEEN of RomComs is BACK!

This book is divided into two parts.
Part one – the past
Part two- the present

Beau Fortier, a twenty-four year old Tulane student, is looking for a place to live while he attends law school. And he just so happens to find a guest house to rent that belongs to the LeBlanc’s. All Beau is focusing on is to graduate Law school, become a successful and powerful lawyer and to rebuild the Fortier name.

Lauren LeBlanc, the wild-curly haired, high school student, first met Beau when he moved into the guest house on her parents property. There were instant sparks the first time they met but nothing could happen because of the age gap. They both know that. But that doesn’t stop their feelings to develop for each other. But after hurricane Andrea causes them to separate, they don’t meet again until much later.

Ten years later, Lauren is back home to open her gallery&coffee shop. She more beautiful, successful and determined to stay away from Beau despite the feelings she still has for him. But Beau isn’t having it. He couldn’t have her when they first met, but now he’ll stop at nothing to get her. I loved Beau in the first part of the book, but god did I love the successful, alpha lawyer Beau that we got to read in the second part.

R.S Grey has been one of my favourite authors since Scoring Wilder. She writes Romance Comedy like no one else. There was absolutely nothing I didn’t like in this book. R.S Grey has never let me down with the characters and stories she creates and I can with full confidence say this is one of the best books by her.

[ARC] Bad For You by J. Daniels



Shayla Perkins isn’t the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean “Stitch” Molina. So when he gives her the world’s biggest rejection, that’s it—she’s done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn’t mean he’s interested in her. Or does it?

Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he’s paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected—especially from a man like Sean. He’s tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.

Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give one another want they want most . . . is to let each other go?

kiss the single life goodbye!

Oh my god. Sean, my love, you broke my heart!

“I’m so fuckin’ sick of being’ nothin’, Shayla.”
“You’re not nothing.” I said, pulling him into a hug.

Get ready for this slow burn.
And to get your heart broken. Completely.

Sean “Stitch” Molina is a broken man. A broody, angry and alone man. He’s been through a hell of a childhood. With a mom who never showed him any love or kindness. He grew up hungry and cold, having to steal food and clothes to take care of himself. Now, he’s the head chef at ‘Whitecaps’ and trying to be the best he can be.

Shayla Perkins, the happy, talky waitress, at ‘Whitecaps’ is the only person that can get to Sean. But after he stands her up, she keeps her distance from him. She tries to keep her focus on work and on her dreams, to open her own salon. But when her Nana dies, and her parents have to leave, she offers to take care of her brothers. But taking care of her brothers while juggling her own life, turns out to be harder than she thought. But then the person she least expected comes to her rescue. Broody Sean.

Sean doesn’t feel worthy. He believes he doesn’t deserve kindness and love. But Shay forces love and kindness on him. She makes it her mission in life to make him feel loved and worthy. She helps him through his nightmares and demons and shows him a place of light.

“Don’t quit talking’ to me,” he begged.
“I won’t. Ever.”
“I want you filling’ my head. I want it so fuckin’ bad.”
God his pain—it became my own—I felt it.

This story really got to me. I knew from the previous books that Sean would be the man to really break my heart. But he was also the one who I really fell in love with. This story will forever be with me. I loved Shayla and Sean’s story. I loved how she was the strong one and made sure Sean knew that she would always be there for him to lean on. I loved that she thought Sean to love and see good in the world. And I absolutely loved their Happy ever after. Shay is everything Sean deserves.

“He didn’t feel worthy. And he was absolutely worthy. Not just of me, but of everything good this world had to offer him. Of love. Of kindness. And I was going to make sure he knew that for good.”

I looked forward to Sara Ney’s Switch Hitter and I was not disappointed.
The story of Dash and Amelia was sweet, funny and sexy.

When Amelia’s twin sister, Lucy, pleads her to go on a date with baseball player, Dash, and pretend to be her, Amelia instantly refuses. That was something they used to to when they were younger and Amelia believes it is impossible for them to pull this off now. They are too different. While her sister is cheerful, flirtatious and sexy, Amelia is the complete opposite.
After a bunch of begging, Amelia finally agrees to go on this date with Dash Amado. . . but only this once.

I run down the facts Lucy gave me about Dash:
Six foot one.
Catcher on the baseball team.
Lives on Jock Row in the baseball house.

Dash didn’t really want this date with Lucy. She is not really his type and she couldn’t for the life of it hold up a conversation. But on the third date, she’s different, smarter and even more beautiful and she now speaks fluent Spanish.

Once more, my eyes roam to the tiny indent near her mouth, lingering there.
Nope. That definitely wasn’t there before.
Was it?
It’s adorable—I’d definitely remember.
Wouldn’t I?
Jesus Christ, estoy perdiendo la cabeza. I’m losing my damn mind.

Amelia hadn’t expected Dash to be so. . . handsome and intelligent. And she did not expect herself to start liking him. But she can’t walk down that road. Her sister likes this guy. Right?

Dash Amado is not only amazingly hot.
He’s amazing

This anthology has a set of stories of sexy, sporty men, but I couldn’t bring myself to love all of them. Switch Hitter is the only one I thoroughly enjoyed. But if you enjoy sports, sexy men and some sexy time—you’ll love this anthology.

Thirty Day Boyfriend by Whitney G.



I should’ve never agreed to this arrangement…

Thirty days ago, my boss—Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn’t refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. If I agreed, he would let me out of my employment contract with a “very generous” severance package.

The rules were pretty simple: No intimate kissing, no actual sex. Just pretend to love each other for the press, even though I’ve secretly wanted to knock that sexy smirk off his face since the first day we met.

I definitely didn’t need to think twice about this. I signed my name and started counting down the seconds to when I would never have to deal with his special brand of ass-holery again.

I only made it to one minute…

We argued the entire four-hour flight to his hometown, failed to make a convincing impression with the welcoming press, and right when I was about to knock that arrogant look off his face in real life? He purposely dropped his bath towel in front of me, distracting me with his nine-inch cock to “show me who the bigger person was” in our relationship. Then he gave me his trademark smirk once again and asked if I wanted to consummate our marriage.
Tragically, this is only day one.
We still have 29 more days to go…

I’m not the biggest fan of short stories. I need more than just a few pages but Whitney G. is one of the authors who can write a shortie and also manage to fit so much passion and love in it.

Emily Johnson wants out of her contract with her boss. She’s been his right hand for two years and for long now, she’s been trying everything to get out of the solid contract. She’s been going to job interviews behind his back but Nicholas always manages to ruin them.

Nicholas Wolfe needs a fiancee for a month. Someone who can help him look like a family man so he can sign the multi-million contract. After interviewing several women for the position, and failing to find someone eligible, he offers the position to Emily. Who’s better than the woman who knows literally everything about him?

Thirty days ago, my boss—Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn’t refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. 

I loved their relationship. Nicholas could be a bit of a douche but Emily faced him with sass and attitude. They were sexy AF together and I wanted more when I finished.

The Fortunate Ones by R.S. Grey

At Twin Oaks Country Club, there are the fortunate ones, and then there are the rest of us: the waiters, the caddies, the valets, and in my case, the cabana girls. Most days, I’m poolside in a pleated skirt, dishing out margaritas to tycoons and titans. It’s not exactly my dream job, but it does come with one perk…

James Ashwood.

He’s my silver lining in a custom black suit.

Besides being a legacy member at the club, he’s a tech mogul and Austin’s most eligible bachelor. Oh, and those dimples? Yeah, they make my stomach dip too.

On good days, I catch his sleek Porsche winding down the tree-lined drive. On better days, I steal a glimpse of his handsome profile as we pass in the hall. And on the absolute best day, I find him alone at the bar, looking for company.

“Come have a seat.”

Those four little words set me down a path I never could have imagined. Private planes, penthouse suites, and temptations around every corner make it impossible to keep my distance. His world feels decadent and wild—but overindulgence comes with a cost. Every kiss comes with strings. Every erotic encounter is a promise I’m not ready to keep.

When I pump the brakes, he hits the gas. James doesn’t want to go slow—he wants a commitment.

And the thing about the fortunate ones?

They’re used to getting what they want.

He’s my silver lining in a custom black suit.

R.S Grey has never disappointed. Ever. Once again, she has shown through this book that she’s the queen of RomComs! Every book she’s written, I’ve devoured. And this one was no different. It was funny, witty, sexy and just everything I love about R.S Grey’s books.

Brooke hates her job at Twin Oaks, working as a cabana girl. She hates all the snobby rich kids, the rich housewives and all the snobby, old men who hit on her every second they can. What she really wants to do is travel and work as an au pair while teaching French.
The only highlight about working at Twin Oaks is getting to see James Ashwood up close. The rich, famous businessman every woman, young as old, swoons over.

James Ashwood wants to settle down. And the sexy, smart and young cabana girl has caught his attention. But Brooke doesn’t want the same things as James. He wants a wife, someone he can come home to after a long day at the office. Brooke wants to teach and travel the world.

This book was sexy, funny and cute. I loved it! But, Brooke’s back and forth behaviour got on my nerves from time to time. I wished she had been more sure about James and their relationship and I wanted them to fight harder for each other. But, I still loved this story of Brooke and James.
