Reeve Nelson is determined to make it in Manhattan. He’s hardworking, dedicated and willing to put in the extra hours required to be successful at his new job at a prestigious real estate firm in the city.

Leo Rodriguez enjoys his reputation as a ruthless businessman. He’s a lone wolf who’s scraped his way from the gutter to rebuild his life and launch a distinguished career on his terms. When an opportunity to expand in the market comes up, Leo wants the eager new agent with a sense of wonder on the project. But nothing goes quite as planned. Reeve expected to be intimidated and overwhelmed by Leo, however, the explosive mutual attraction and fierce desire between them is a big surprise. Neither man is looking for love and yet, something special just might happen if they can find their way…together.

Yeah, this was my idea but I wasn’t prepared to be this close to Leo again. His mere presence overwhelmed me. He smelled so good. I wanted to bury my nose in the collar of his button-down shirt and just…breathe. I told myself Leo was a regular guy like every other guy here, but truthfully, he wasn’t the least bit ordinary. Even in executive chic, Leo turned more heads than the shirtless bartenders. And when he smiled at the young man next to me who offered him his stool, he added another admirer to his list.
 
I’d never been around anyone who changed the temperature in a room simply by entering it the way he did. It wasn’t his appearance either. His height and sharp sense of style might garner a second glance, but his true appeal was innate. It was in the way he spoke and moved. He didn’t mince words or waste time. He was concise and direct and acted with purpose. I got the impression Leo Rodriguez had a reason for everything he did, including wanting to meet with me.
 
Leo perched on the vacated stool and then hooked his thumb at me when I didn’t reply. “He’ll have a martini too.”
 
“No. I mean, yes. But with olives, please. No onions.” I thanked the bartender then swiveled to face Leo, accidentally bumping his knee.
 
I muttered a quick apology and cautioned myself to pull it together. Leo wasn’t my boss anymore, for fuck’s sake. I just wished he didn’t make me so anxious.
 
Commence the nervous chatter.
 
“Onions? No one orders onions,” I snorted. “And vodka-soaked onions are especially gross.”
 
Leo’s lip curled on one side like a pirate. “When was the last time you had a vodka-soaked onion?”
 
“Uh…well, never,” I admitted with a frown. “But it sounds gross.”
 
“Chocolate covered scorpions and braised frog legs are gross. Onions aren’t in the same zip code.”
 
I made a face and shivered. “Have you actually eaten those things?”
 
“Yeah, and actually, they’re not so bad. Chocolate hides the taste of anything, even insects, and frog legs taste like chicken. But you never know unless you try.”
 
“No thanks.”
 
Leo tsked playfully. “You have big opinions, a big mouth, and a hot temper, Nelson. No wonder I like you.” He nodded his thanks when the bartender delivered our cocktails then raised his glass in a mock toast. “To onions.”
 
“Onions?”
 
“We sure as fuck ain’t drinkin’ to olives,” he quipped.
 
I chuckled at his comedic expression then sipped my martini while I wracked my brain for a non-confrontational topic of conversation to stall the inevitable one.
 
“What do you have against olives?” Weak. But it was better than nothing, and Leo seemed willing to play along.
 
“Nothing. It’s a texture thing. I don’t eat them if I can help it but I love olive oil. And tapenade is cool as long as those little suckers are chopped really fine. Otherwise, olives are a hard pass for me. Everyone has a food like that. What’s yours?”
 
“Kidney beans,” I replied quickly. “I like them in chili but not in salad. I have a great recipe for spicy chili that requires multiple glasses of water on standby. My grandmother made it when we were kids and”—I stopped to take a gulp of my drink before braving a look his way—“I’m sorry. You make me nervous.”
 
“Why, Reeve?” he purred, leaning into his elbow on the bar next to mine. “Is it because of last night?”

A Way with YouA Way with You by Lane Hayes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is book #9, in the Memories With The Breakfast Club series in the Kindle Worlds. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

Reeve applies for his dream job in the city. Then his boss makes him offer he has to refuse. To make matters even worse, the attraction between them intensifies. You just cannot be intimate with your boss.

Leo has been hurt so much in the past. He has so many walls up. Each day it seems like Reeve is breaking them down one by one. Can he trust that his heart is telling him the truth?

This was such an amazing story. There is so much to it. The characters are both strong. The banter is set at a nice quick pace. This was a great addition to this series. It was exciting to read the character development and see the conclusion come together. This book was a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Book Description:
 
Ruby O’Brien, NFL publicist extraordinaire, lives her life by three simple rules:

#1 - Never date a client.
#2 - Never sleep with a client.
#3 - Never fall in love with a client.

The problem is, she never counted on Alec LeBrun.

Alec, the cocky and talented tight end of the Savannah Bootleggers, repeatedly asks Ruby for a date, and no one’s more shocked than Ruby when she finally says yes. Less than twenty four hours later, however, he’s engaged to someone else. Lesson learned. Two months later, Alec’s single again, acting like a publicity nightmare and requiring up-close supervision. Now Ruby has to help Alec fix his bad boy reputation, even as she protects her heart.

Alec watched Ruby from afar for months, long before circumstances got him engaged to his lying ex. Now he’s free to pursue the only woman he’s ever truly wanted. Ruby's smart, gorgeous, and super-professional, and he wants her with a hunger he’s never experienced before. Too bad Ruby thinks he’s still pining for another woman. Now he has to prove her wrong. Jeopardizing their careers isn’t part of the plan, but he also refuses to play by her rules—not when doing so means losing the woman he loves.

Can Alex convince Ruby that, sometimes, scoring in love means risking it all? And will Ruby accept that she’s not second best, but the only woman Alec wants? For a lifetime.
 
 
 

Excerpt:

Ruby O’Brien flashed her media badge at the stadium security booth before zipping into the Savannah Bootleggers’ crowded parking lot. Pulling into her reserved spot, she turned off the ignition and rested her head against the steering wheel, listening to disgruntled Bootleggers fans returning to their cars after an unexpected defeat.

No wonder Alec was in a bad mood.

The mid-season loss, the recent breakup with his ex-fiancée, Colleen, the fact his own teammate had apparently been taunting him about both… It would put anyone in a bad mood, but unfortunately, right now, the reasons for Alec’s bad mood didn’t matter.

He had to straighten up.

Yes, he was obviously going through a lot, but he had choices. And choices, as a high-profile tight end in the world of professional football, meant everything.

Lately, his choices had changed him. The charming, professionally-dedicated man she’d always known had deteriorated into a ghost of himself. For weeks now, Alec had wavered between his usual mischievous, easy-going self one minute and a short-tempered, troublemaking Hulk the next. The man was jeopardizing, not only his own image, but that of the entire Bootleggers franchise. Not to mention the reputation of her father’s publicity firm, O’Brien PR. One more bad move on Alec’s part, and the team’s contract might not be renewed.

It couldn’t happen. Not on her watch.

She had to get strict with him, and she had to start now.

As Ruby strode toward the Bootleggers’ locker room, she focused on the job at hand. She tugged down the hem of her short skirt. She’d been in the middle of a date when her father had interrupted, a desperate phone call about Alec, urgently commanding her to “get that cranky-ass boy under control!” There’d been no time to change. So while she usually wore pressed, buttoned shirts and dark suits to work, right now, she was slaying a sexy black dress, strappy heels, and hair down in loose, fiery waves. Not how she’d choose to have a showdown with any client, least of all Alec, the man she’d crushed on for months.

She’d been drawn to him from the moment she’d first met him, but while he’d been friendly, flirty even, he’d never given her any indication that he was seriously attracted to her. Then, two months ago, after he’d broken up with his cheerleader girlfriend, Colleen, he’d asked her out, multiple times. And what had she done? She’d finally caved, despite the fact she never dated clients, because doing so violated her own rules, yes, but mostly it violated her father’s business policies. In the end, it hadn’t mattered. The date never happened. Instead, the next day, it’d been all over the news—Alec and Colleen were engaged and planning an early October wedding.

To say her heart shattered before it ever got out the gate was an understatement. Water under the bridge, Ruby thought. That weak Ruby was gone now, and she was the woman she’d always been. Professional Ruby. Ruthless Ruby. No-nonsense, Non-Heartbroken Ruby. And here we go…
Pushing those double doors open was the same every time: loud, bright, chaotic, and filled with the pungent smell of sweat and buckets of body spray. Ruby marched through the swarm of players, keeping her peripheral blinders on. Do not look at the naked men. Do not, do not, do not…

For a moment, a sudden silence overtook the locker room, followed by several low whistles. An elongated “damnnnn.” Great. They were checking her out! She should’ve changed out of the dress. Oh, well, too late now. Her stride faltered, and a blush overcame her cheeks a split second before the catcalls ended.

“Hey, Red, ’bout time you got here.” Martinez, the wide receiver from LSU who couldn’t run a simple route to save his life, but could catch a ball with his pinky, shouted at her from his locker. “Ooo, LeBrun’s in trouble now. Look how pissed she is. Ow!” he howled.

She breathed a sigh of relief that the men weren’t going to razz her about her sexy dress. About Alec, yes, but that she could handle. Glancing in his direction but keeping her gaze aimed high, she waved at Martinez. “Be glad it’s not you I’m after,” Ruby said with a smirk.

Several of the boys chuckled. Notably, both quarterback Kyle Young and wide receiver Heath Dawson, Alec’s best friends, were absent, as was Connors, the player Alec had fought with. Were they with him in the medic room? Ruby had already texted Richard James, Connors’ publicist, and would be meeting with him after talking to Alec. As for Young and Dawson? They’d probably cleared out to meet their girlfriends. The men had recently found the loves of their lives and while they, unlike Alec, weren’t letting their football careers suffer, they also made sure the women in their lives were given equal priority.

“We missed you at tonight’s game, Red. We’re used to you being in the stands but looks like you had bigger plans.” That came from Plough, the left offensive end from Ohio State, who needed to get his hands up or he’d be knocked on his ass all season. “I think you’re right, Martinez. She don’t look too happy. Gorgeous but not happy.”

“Hey, Red, how come you never come just to see us? Why it always gotta be LeBrun, LeBrun, LeBrun?” That was Hewitt, rookie quarterback the Bootleggers drafted first round from Stanford. Denser than a bag of bricks, but basically a nice guy who threw beautiful spirals to Alec every time.

“’Cause he’s the only one who needs reprimanding, gentlemen.” Her mind wandered, as she thought about all the ways she wished she could reprimand Alec for his misbehavior. In another world, another lifetime, where publicists and clients ravaged each other as post-game punishment.

None of that, Ruby. Keep it together. Alec just asked you out to fill in the space Colleen left behind when they broke up that first time at the end of the summer. As soon as he had the opportunity to get back together with her, he couldn’t forget about Ruby fast enough. Hell, they’d never even discussed the fact he’d asked her out and she’d accepted—when she’d seen him again, she’d simply congratulated him on his engagement. And though he’d looked tense, like he wanted to say something more, in the end he’d simply said, “Thanks, Ruby,” and walked away.

It hurt. Like a mothereffer. But Ruby was great at moving on, and so she did. Chin up and all that. She never should’ve agreed to a date in the first place.

Past the hoots and hollers, past the ass-staring—she knew they were doing it even with her eyes facing forward—past the not-so-clever quips, Ruby made her way to the medic room where she spied a man sitting on the exam table through the cheap, bent blinds. He faced away from her, as the team doctor dabbed a cotton swab to his cheek. She’d know that strong back anywhere—the twitching ripple of his muscles, the width of his shoulders, the expanse of his delts, the thickness of arms that would never, ever, wrap around her. There he was—Alec LeBrun in all his hot mess glory.

Time to put him in his place.

Synopsis


Last Chance is a story of love and heartache proving that life is not always fair, but it's worth the pain to get the moments you’ll treasure forever.

Mackenzie

From the very first moment I laid eyes on him, I knew my heart was his for the taking. He was the boy who filled me with butterflies and made my palms turn clammy at the mere sight of him.

There was only one problem… he was my best friend’s older brother.

It’s been eight years since I’ve last seen him, and I refuse to live another day without telling him the truth. So here I stand, taking my last chance to get him to notice me, my last chance to see if he feels the same way.

I need to know if he is just a fantasy, or if he could be my reality…

Before my reality changes forever.

Connor

I never wanted a girlfriend; I was burned by love and vowed to never go down that road again. But when the beautiful girl I’ve known practically my entire life snuck her way into my arms there was something that changed in me. I wanted to be with her, next to her. Just simply kissing her lips made my life complete.

Now I have one mission.

To make hers complete, too.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mackenzie AKA "Kenzie" is best friends with Connor's little sister. He will always think of her like that. One night changes everything and she gets her fantasy. Is there room for more?

Connor's mind is blown. The little girl he never dreamed would become his everything is suddenly grown up. Right there. All he could ever want. With a secret that could ruin it all.

This story was a real different choice for me. I tend to stay to the lighthearted side of romance and this was just more real. Like real life in your face - real. I ended up completely loving it, because the story inside just captivated me. With a compelling plot, it moves along just slow enough to burn at the edges.... and leave you with fascinating singes. The characters are drawn to one another and the chemistry just sucks you right into its vortex. I eagerly turned each page.

#24 Follow Friday with book bloggers: Kat's Books

 

All book lovers know that cats and books go well together. Meet Kat, a true avid reader and a cat lover with an amazing book box library ;)

 

Follow Kat's Books blog on BookLikes: http://kamoorephoto.booklikes.com/

 

 

When did you discover you’re a book lover? 

 

I've truly been a book lover all my life; I was the kind of child that loved going to the library, and got into trouble for bringing my book to the dinner table, and loved organizing my bookshelves. My parents were (and still are) avid book readers, so I'm sure that played a huge part in it. I even fell in love with a series of books about boarding school (by Enid Blyton) so much, that I got my wish to go to an English boarding school (we lived in Hong Kong at the time). Bonus points for looking up where I went: Battle Abbey. 

 

 

How did your book blogging adventure start and how did it affect your (reading) life? 

 

I started doing reviews, and then started receiving more ARCs, and discovered BookLikes. I enjoy posting reviews and organizing my books online, and hopefully others will read something I wrote and it will help them decide what to read or buy next. I guess it makes me more conscious of what I read next.   

 

 

What are you reading right now? 

 

I'm reading the ARC for a book called The Afterlives byThomas Pierce, which is a book that almost defies description. It's fascinating, and it's out January 9th, '18. I've also just taken on an epic 'buddy read' of The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss  , which is 752 pages long (what am I thinking?!). I hope at some point to just focus on that one though. (I've got it on audio too, though)   

 

The Afterlives: A Novel - Thomas PierceThe Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicle, #1) - Patrick Rothfuss

 

Do you read one book or several at a time? 

 

I usually only read one at a time, and generally take 2-3 days to finish a book if I'm not too busy and if life isn't too crazy. I like being able to focus on one book, so I can really grasp the story and characters, and only sometimes take on another. I find it's easier to take on a second if it's a different genre, or it's in a different medium (ie audiobook/ebook).   

 

 

You wish to read 100 books in 2018 - we keep our fingers crossed! How much time do you spend reading? 

 

Well, I only really started tracking my book-reading last June, and I read 69 from June until the end of the year. I usually read several hours late at night (I kind of have an insomnia problem) when it's quiet, and when everyone else is in bed. But I also have MS, so sometimes when I'm not feeling good, and I'm having a good rest, I get in extra reading time. I think I can take on 100 this year!   

 

Kat's Books - Reading Challenge page

 

 

What are your favorite book genres? Why are they special? 

 

I like a lot of different genres and read a lot of different kinds of books: thriller, sci-fi, horror, fantasy, literary fiction, memoirs, YA or otherwise. The only genre that doesn't grab me is romance. Can't do it! Sometimes it feels more appropriate or special to do certain ones at different times of the year though.   

 

 

You’re a cat lover and a photographer <3 Would love to see some pics ;) 

 

I could actually show you my photos all day (see attached, for a few), and you can also find me here:  http://kamoorephotography.com   

 

All photos Copyrighted K.A.Moore Photography

 

 

In your short bio you write “I'm usually busy taking cat photos at a cat rescue” - tell us more about it.

 

I've been a volunteer photographer at the same cat rescue for about 7 years now, here in Seattle, and I take photos of cats who especially need photos that need that extra awesome photos from me to get them noticed, ie senior cats, special-needs kitties. I sometimes do private home sessions, families and events too, but I do photos at the rescue every week like clockwork, edit them and get them up on our site.

 

All photos Copyrighted K.A.Moore Photography

 

 

I also design our annual calendar (still for sale! http://bit.ly/CatCalendarKAMoore)  I used to work in film production, on movies, and have a degree in film and video, so have always had a penchant for storytelling, but I went back to still photos after I found out I have MS and to slow down a bit.

What are your three favorite book covers? 

 

EVER?! That's so hard! There are so many book covers these days and who doesn't pick up a book because they love the cover? 

- One of the ALL-TIME best is a children's book – Where The Wild Things Are; it was my son's favorite book when he was little and he was even Max for Halloween when he was 3 (I made his costume). 

 

 

 

- My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady Hendrix  (Paperback): it's made to look like a VHS casing/cover, and it is genius. The design is actually by a comedian Doogie Horner and it caught my eye immediately. I also loved the book!

- This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada; I happen to love the book to death, and is one of my top books of 2017, but when you realize what the cover art represents, along with the vibrant simplicity of it, it is unbeatable as a cover design. 

 

My Best Friend's Exorcism - Grady HendrixThis Mortal Coil - Emily Suvada

 

 

 

How do you pick your next book to read? 

 

I usually set out a bunch for the month because I include ARCs I have (that may have review deadlines), plus I participate in some challenges on Litsy, so sometimes it depends on those two things, but I'm very much a mood reader when I'm picking my next book to read. 

 

 

 

Which books are you most excited recommending to your followers in 2018? 

 

- Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh  (out next week! I actually also have been written into the sequel too, in a teeny part) 

- My Plain Jane by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows  (I loved My Lady Jane so this is a must) 

 

Reign of the Fallen - Sarah Glenn MarshMy Plain Jane - Brodi Ashton,Cynthia Hand,Jodi MeadowsMy Lady Jane - Brodi Ashton,Jodi Meadows,Cynthia Hand

 

 

- The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza by Shaun David Hutchinson  (sci-fi genius) 

- The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager  (who wrote 'Final Girls) 

- The Boneless Mercies by April Genevieve Tucholke (a genderbent reimaging of Beowulf) 

 

The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza - Shaun David HutchinsonThe Last Time I Lied - Riley SagerThe Boneless Mercies - April Genevieve Tucholke

 

 

What’s your reading spot? We’d love to see the photos :) 

 

My favorite place is actually in bed, or on my bed, with my cats, and dog. In winter it's snuggly and warm, and in the summer, it's where my fan is. 

 

 

 

 

A paper book or an e-book? 

 

I love paper books, both new and good-condition used books, but I also have a Kindle Fire, and I love being able to read on-the-go and I receive ARCs on there, have Amazom Prime, as well as borrow books from the library that way. 

 

 

Three titles for a winter evening? 

 

- Dark Matter by Blake Crouch (everyone must read this! It will make you think) 

- The Princess Bride by William Goldman  (the one romance/comedy/adventure I truly love, and I can't believe I waited so long to read after loving the movie so much) 

- Invictus by Ryan Graudin (time-traveling adventure that will take you to Roman times, to the Titanic, and beyond; you'll have so much fun reading this)

 

Dark Matter: A Novel - Blake CrouchThe Princess Bride: S. Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure - William GoldmanInvictus - Ryan Graudin

 

Favorite quote? 

 

Actually, my favorite is an animal quote:

Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.

~ Anatole France 

 

If you could meet one literary character, who would it be? 

 

I guess he's not really a 'literary' character but after reading and then 'hearing' Trevor Noah's Born A Crime (and if you haven't heard his audiobook yet, you must!), I so would love to meet him.

And Garfield. 

 

 

Shelfie time! Please share your home library photos :) 

 

Don't laugh! I had to give my big bookcase to my book-loving son when we moved into a smaller place, so now my books are in limbo, mostly in open subscription book boxes. Someone give me a wall bookshelf system!

 

Thank you!
