I am a massive fan of Haleigh Lovell and couldn’t wait to read her latest book. The Slam was definitely a grand slam for me and a fabulous insight into the mind of people from all walks of life. I loved The List series and cannot wait to read what Ms Lovell brings next. I loved the humour throughout, it kept me guessing and captivated. Adelaide is just such a wonderful character and the ASD aspect is something that is very close to my heart. It was extremely interesting to read a romance with a character that is on the Autism spectrum and how her thoughts came across throughout the book.

Enderson and Edricson Hemsworth are two famous brothers on the Berkeley University campus. These two tennis hotshots certainly get up to a lot of mischief and are known for their frat parties. Ender is especially known for his womanising, but the girls don’t seem to mind and there’s always a line waiting to get into his bed.

Ender finds a letter and discovers an old family friend is coming to stay and arriving that very day. In a panic the boys leave and expect to find an awkward, bucktooth, tomboy Australian girl at the airport. But what they realise is that Adelaide Vikander is not that girl anymore.

In the letter, Adelaide’s legal guardian explains that she sometimes has trouble understanding social or emotional situations and asks Ender to watch over her. As Adelaide begins classes, she realises just how much she doesn’t grasp and in the end asks Ender for her, especially when it comes to dating and boys.

It appears the boys on campus have realised how hot Adelaide is and all vie for her attention. When she asks for physical guidance with boys, Ender’s feelings become more intense and intimate. He realises just how special Adelaide is, how amazing and brilliant, but if he doesn’t tell her soon, it may be too late.

Will Ender be able to end his womanising ways and tell Adelaide how he truly feels? Will he live his life the way HE wants and not his fathers? Will Adelaide be accepted by her peers for her quirks and innocence?

The Slam was filled to the brim with sizzling scenes, laugh out loud fun and drama around every corner. Adelaide had a black and white mentality when it came to everything in her life, she helped calm Ender with her knowledge and showed that everybody sees life in a different light. Her ramblings were the most detailed and fun parts of this book and I loved every second. I would really love a sequel with Edric’s story and highly recommend this book and this author to all romance readers.

Julian's Pursuit
Julian's Pursuit - Haleigh Lovell Once I started reading this series I couldn't stop till I read them all what a wonderful series.
Again this is a great romantic story this time Julian's finds his queen but in the office she's more known as the ice queen but he can't stop pursuing her.

Sadie's live is not a walk in the park she has a sick son Evan and an alcoholic mother to look after, she has no time for a love life, can she resist Julian's charm?

And what happens as her ex boyfriend/father of Evan comes back in her life after he abandoned her when she found out that she was pregnant?

Liam's List
Liam's List - Haleigh Lovell This book continues were it ended with Vivian's list. You will read about Liam's live when he goes back on duty and the horrible things they need to overcome after their deployment.

One of the most emotional parts for me was when he needed to proof read the letters from his best friend in case he was killed during duty.

The both need to live with the consequences of the war. Can they handle this or will it break their love for each other?

I am a big fan of Haleigh Lovell since reading her first two books, Vivian’s List and Liam’s List. I was super excited to hear of another book with connecting characters and Julian’s story; he was such a big part of the first two books and I was looking forward to reading more about him. I was definitely not disappointed and Ms Lovell has an incredible writing style that kept me captivated throughout.

Julian Sorenson has been hurt badly before by love. Now out of the Military, Julian has to build a career. He is interviewed for the position as Creative Director at an advertising firm. He is confident and gives the interviewers, Sadie Frost and David Varner, exactly what they want to hear.

At the interview, meeting Sadie Frost has been a highlight for Julian. He was immediately attracted to her and couldn’t wait to put his charm to the test. Now two weeks later, Julian is working for Hall and Heinrich and is being advised by a colleague to stay away from “the sadist Ice Queen”, Sadie. Although Julian listens, he believes Tim was rejected by her in the past and his ego is hurt; all Julian knows is that he wants Sadie.

Julian begins the process of getting under Sadie’s skin and with determination, hard work and a lot of charm, he doesn’t give up until she agrees to frozen yoghurt.

Sadie Frost is a single mother to six year old, Evan. She has had to fight tooth and nail to get where she is right now as Senior Account Executive at Hall and Heinrich. No matter what happens at work, she HAS to keep her icy exterior, show no emotion, do not let anybody know how they really do hurt her.

Nobody has any idea who the father is of Sadie’s son, she came home pregnant from college at eighteen and hasn’t spoken of him. She has never had a relationship since, men have failed her trust. Sadie’s life is complicated, her mother is an alcoholic and behaves like a twenty year old and her son has a condition that requires regular check-ups. There is no way she wants a relationship right now and especially a work colleague. But Julian has other ideas!

Who is Evan’s father? What is wrong with Sadie’s son? Will she give in to the obvious connection she shares with Julian? Can Julian finally break through her barrier and get Sadie to trust him?

Julian’s Pursuit is hilarious, I was laughing out loud at Julian’s antics, and he could always make Sadie smile. Julian is such a sweet sweet man who has been through a lot in his life already. Andrea (Sadie’s mother) was such a fab character also, her way with words was just so funny. This is one fun, sizzling hot, sweet, beautiful and unpredictable love story that all romance readers should pick up.
