Chasing Christmas Eve: A Heartbreaker Bay Novel - Jill Shalvis

This is book #4, in the Heartbreaker Bay series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding of this fun series, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Colbie needs a break.  A fresh start to give her a chance to breathe before returning to her smothering life.  Where to go?  What to do?  Well... how about San Francisco?

 

Spence sort of helps a dog cause a tourist to fall into their fountain.  He feels bad.  Then he feels attracted.  Colbie is a beautiful, talented, funny, and amazing tourist he would like to get to know better.  Where is this coming from?  Even he doesn't know.

 

This is a laugh out loud funny story!  It can also be sexy and sweet  Typical for this author, however.  There is a reason she is a go-to favorite.  Her characters are real people.  We can all put ourselves in these circumstances and relate.  I found these characters so much fun to read.  And... re-visiting with some of the series favorites in here was great also.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Suspension of belief?
His Virgin Payback: A Billionaire & Virgin Romance - Virginia Sexton

This one as it wasn't at all what I expected. I expected steam and I got that, but the huge suspension of belief required for the story wasn't something I anticipated. After the eye-rolling prologue, maybe I should've seen it coming, but I kept reading. At the start of the story, Jacob comes across as arrogant and selfish, with little regard for anyone else, so for him to willingly sacrifice himself for others would be contrary to that. Then, years later, when he goes after Lily out of revenge, she jumps at the chance to go out with the man she thinks betrayed her father. Lily is innocent as far as relationships and intimacy are concerned, but her father is all she has and it appears that they are close in the beginning, so I can't fathom a situation where a supposedly intelligent young woman would so easily accept any kind of invitation from Jacob, let alone a date. Then, to add insult to injury, when everything comes out, Jacob has no clue what was going on with his partner and mentor during the time of said betrayal? I realize that it's fiction, but it has to make sense for the world that it is set in.  The story is novella length, so maybe a bit more fleshing out of the story would've helped, but there are just too many things that don't work here. 

If you like steam without much substance, then you may enjoy this one more than I did.

Simple
The Cinderella Fantasy - Sara Jane Stone

Lucy plays a princess by day and is looking for her prince charming by night.  While having her brother and his best friend and business partner watch over her.  Too bad his partner pushes all her buttons, since he is not even in her league.

 

Jared stopped thinking of Lucy as a little sister when he got a good look at her legs.  She attracts him on several levels, but he does not want to mess up a good friendship with her brother by acting on that attraction.  Still, he cannot help the way he feels.

 

This is an amazingly sexy and fun story.  It puts so many elements together in a terrifically sweet package.  The characters banter, the ocean views, well... let's just say if it were a movie opening weekend would blow the critics away.  I loved the simple and strong characters and all that they are to one another.  I cannot wait to see more with this theme.  In my opinion, this is the author's best work to date.  I give this book a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Book Review For You: PENTHOUSE PLAYER by Tara Leigh
Penthouse Player (Billionaire Bosses) - Tara Leigh
Penthouse Player (Billionaire Bosses, #1)Penthouse Player by Tara Leigh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

'Penthouse Player' by Tara Leigh is the First Book in the New series called "Billionaire Bosses". This is the story of Reina St. James and Tristan Xavier Bettencourt IV.
Renia mom left her and her 'Dad' when she was a young teenager. Renia had learned through over hearing her mother that the man she left them for was actually her real dad. It seemed that he was married and Renia was what he called a 'bastard' child. Her real father has to keep up an image and doesn't want legitimate kids to know about her. So her mom never came back to see her and her 'Dad' kind of left her to her on devices. Now Renia is working towards a great career and has taken a job at Bettencourt. Renia meets Tristan at a party and they almost have a one night stand before Renia realizes who he is an takes off.
This puts a spin on her working for him and they both try to fight their attraction but can't for long.
I enjoyed their story!

I loved the relationship between Harvey and Alma both online and off. I loved the relationship between Alma and her younger sister Conchita. I also really liked the relationship between Enrique and Harvey even after the divorce. I will say I sometimes got frustrated with Harvey or Alma or both. I really liked harvey and Alma together. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend
