Surprise
One Baby Daddy - Meghan Quinn

This book is #3, in the Dating By Numbers series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading these in order.

 

Hayden meets Adalyn at a mutual friends party.  The attraction to her attributes is instantaneous.  Only he is not allowed to act on it - unless he wants to lose his oldest friend.

 

Adalyn is sassy and sexy, and her quick wit is very attractive.  She is surprised to find she enjoys talking with the hockey player she is meeting for the first time.  While surprises seem to be the name of the summer, she is not sure what to do when the next big thing hits.

 

This book was so full of emotion!  I loved what a great installment this was for the series.  The characters were sarcastic, hot, and really funny.  I enjoyed this story right down to the last page.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Bravo
Jock Row - Sara Ney

Sterling AKA "Rowdy" is the captain of his school's baseball team.  When they need him, he is right there to take care of things.  The current need?  Getting rid of this adorable cock blocker.  

 

Scarlett has only tried to help her friends.  How is it her fault that the guys are terrible conversationalists?  The sexy hunk of a man who kicks her out makes up for it, though.  Now if she could just convince him to let her back in the house....

 

Such an amazingly great book.  This series is very sexy and fun.  I loved the banter element most of all.  I could picture it like it was happening right in front of me!  I could not put this book down and eagerly devoured each and every page.  What lucky readers we are.  I cannot wait to read the next installment.  I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Sexy
Thirty Day Boyfriend - Phyllis A. Whitney

Emily has had all she take of her job and her boss.  Then he proposed a whole new deal.  With all that is at stake, can she really last thirty days?

 

Nicholas fights his attraction to his assistant every day.  Following her second anniversary with his company, he asks Emily to do him a favor.  If they can get along for one month, maybe that will be all it takes.

 

The voices provided by Erin Mallon & Zachary Webber were just really good to listen to.  I think it was a great combination, and the inflections and tones added to the story.  I really hope I get to hear them in another book.  This story with these voices was just magic.

 

This was such a fun and sexy story.  There was heat, terrific banter, and a trope that any serious romance reader can get behind.  I laughed and enjoyed listening to this book right to the end.  I give this audiobook a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Book Blitz - Shopping For A Billionaire's Baby

Shopping for a Billionaire’s Baby
Julia Kent
(Shopping for a Billionaire #13))
Publication date: April 24th 2018
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

You know what’s even better than marrying a billionaire? Having his baby.

 

We’re ready. We’ve studied and planned, read all the birth and labor books, researched parenting classes, consulted our schedules, and it’s time.

 

And by we I mean me.

 

Declan’s just ready for the “have lots of sex” part. More than ready.

 

But there’s just one problem: my husband and his brother have this little obsession with competition.

 

And by little, I mean stupid.

That’s right.

 

We’re not just about to try to bring a new human being into the world.

 

We have to do it better, Faster, Stronger.

 

Harder.

 

McCormick men don’t just have babies.

 

They engage in competitive billionaire Babythons.

 

I thought the hardest part about getting pregnant would be dealing with my grandchild-crazed mother, who will go nuts shopping for a billionaire’s baby.

 

Wrong.

 

Between conception issues, my mother’s desire to talk to the baby through a hoo-haw cam, a childbirth class led by a drill sergeant and a father-in-law determined to sign the kid up for prep school before Declan even pulls out, my pregnancy has turned out to be one ordeal after the other.

 

But it’s nothing — nothing — compared to the actual birth.

 

Shopping for a Billionaire’s Baby is the newest book in Julia Kent’s New York Times bestselling romantic comedy series.

EXCERPT:

 

“Just because other people can’t get their act together as parents doesn’t mean we can’t,” I explain. “There is no process that can’t be project managed into a well-oiled machine, babies included.”

 

Andrew snorts. “You really believe that.”

 

“A baby is like a disruptive new technology. But our first deliverable is still eight months to a year away. That leaves us plenty of time to update our practices and diversify into new areas. Find the best people, incentivize them, and keep them in their swim lanes.”

 

I’m getting major raised eyebrows here.

 

“Optimization protocols, testing, fine tuning, and putting together the right team is all it takes. Drill down to the essentials, find people who are the absolute best at what we need, and that’s it–we build a life based on optimal outcomes.”

 

“You sound like you’re making a robotic dog, Dec. Not a human.”

 

“This baby will have a hands-on father. Plenty of love. And with a mother like Shannon, how could we go wrong?”

 

Mother.

 

Calling Shannon a mother does something to my gut.

 

A tug, hard and emotional, destabilizes me for a second.

 

 

 

Author Bio:

 

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Julia Kent writes romantic comedy with an edge. From billionaires to BBWs to new adult rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every contemporary romance she writes.

She lives in New England with her husband and three sons in a household where the toilet seat is never, ever, down.

Half Seven on a Thursday
Half Seven On A Thursday - Roisin Meaney

I got such a kick out of this one. Meaney has a play in this one with you also delving into the life of the characters who come to perform in an amateur production. I really enjoyed everyone we read about and would have happily read a second book starring everyone. However, Meaney gives you a general idea of how things are going to go with everyone once the curtains fall. 

 

Six people come out to audition for an amateur play called, "Death by Dying". Think Agatha Christie.

 

The director of the play, Edward Bull (everyone mentions he looks like Tommy Lee Jones) is throwing himself into directing in order to distract himself over the disintegration of his marriage. He wonders if he can forgive his wife, but finds himself thinking about someone else. I liked Edward. He is a bit of a prig when the book starts off and stays that way through the end. But he grows on you, at least he did on me. He is trying to take care of his uncle and definitely knows what is what with directing. 

 

The other characters are sisters, Ellen and Maria. Ellen is still dealing with the heartache of losing her childhood sweetheart. Maria is dealing with being in a loveless marriage and her son's autism. I didn't really like Ellen. There is a whole side-plot dealing with her and a potential medical issue that didn't make me more interested in her. Maria I felt really bad about. She's caught between a rock and a hard place and wants to leave her marriage, but feels trapped since her young son needs his routines or he will lash out. 

 

Robert is a hairdresser still working alongside his ex-wife Caroline. They share custody of their twin boys, but now Caroline is seeking to make a big change that is going to impact Robert. I don't know. I didn't care that much for Robert. You find out he and Caroline split because he cheated. He seems oblivious about how much he had to hurt her. His two kids are pretty cute though. 

 

Harry is a librarian and dealing with a secret he has kept hidden about himself. He still has hope his mother who is suffering from Alzheimer's can come back to herself. I felt badly for Harry. We get a scene with him trying to take his mother out for her birthday over the objections of his absent siblings. You can feel how much pain and loneliness he is dealing with. 

 

Theo has a son and daughter she adores. Only issue is that her current fiance's daughter that she wishes would go away. Can't lie, didn't like Theo at all for this whole story-line. She was acting obtuse and kind of jerky. 

 

Judith has a lot of regrets. Her ex-husband abandoned her long ago to deal with raising their son alone. He hasn't turned out that great. When he returns from Greece with a girlfriend, her life is tipped upside down. 

 

I enjoyed reading the play/characters dialogue so much. I thought it was such a smart idea to mix that in there with us getting to read along with the rehearsals. 

 

The book flow was great. You go from character to character quite easily. Meaney does a good job of setting up the chapter headings that helps with showing how much time has passed as well. 

 

The ending was really good. Not everyone got a great happy ending, but what does occur made sense to me.
