Title: TAKE IT OFF THE MENU

Author: Christina Hovland

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

About TAKE IT OFF THE MENU:

 

 

Saying "I Do" has never been such a mess.  

 

Marlee Medford just got dumped. Yes, things have become ho-hum in her longtime relationship, but she was two days away from walking down the aisle with the man she thought was her forever when he called it off. Convincing herself that they'd be able to reignite their spark once the wedding craziness settled? That was easy. Suddenly finding herself without a fiancé? Not so much. Marlee needs to regain control of her life, and a weekend away with her friends is a solid first step.  

 

One of Denver's best up-and-coming chefs, perpetual bachelor Eli Howard, isn't into serious relationships--especially the kind that ends in marriage. As if to prove his point that they aren't worth the trouble, the wedding he was supposed to be catering just fell apart. Feeling oddly protective of the jilted bride--his little sister's best friend--his weekend plans now involve a trip to Sin City with her group of friends. But it looks like he had a bit too much fun in Vegas when he wakes up married...wedding night included.  

 

Marlee's attempts at getting her life back together are failing miserably. Her ex-fiancé is taking the house, her chihuahua is intent on a love affair with Eli's sneakers, and she's now accidentally hitched to the guy who can't even say the word marriage. With their quickie annulment denied, Eli and Marlee just have to hang tight until the divorce goes through. It's just a little divorce amongst friends, what's the worst that could happen?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book #3, in the Mile High Matched series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Marlee had just gotten dumped and her wedding is off. Her ex is a chicken who puts all of it on her. Too much pressure. Good thing she has her friends. Even Eli, whom she has known forever. He is always there when she needs him.

Eli's sister is Marlee's best friend. He has always watched over them when they do their worst. He fixes the messes, and patches them up. This time he may need the one in need of aid.

Honestly, this started out what I would call a slow burn. Then when the pace picked up it nearly stampeded out of the book and over me. I loved the relationships, the friends, the pranks, the banter, the fun, the humor, and so much more. These characters would not be ignored and even when sleep beckoned I ignored it to finish what was a terrific story.

Audio Review: Wicked Angel (Wicked Horse Vegas Book 6) by: Sawyer Bennett (author) Lance Greenfield (narrator) Kirsten Leigh (narrator)
Wicked Angel (Wicked Horse Vegas Book 6) - Lance Greenfield,Sawyer Bennett,Kirsten Leigh

 

 

Anyone who reads a Sawyer Bennett novel doesn't do so for the beautiful words or the flighty happily ever after. Wicked Angel takes a detour into darkness that is as pure as it is tragic. Elena and Benjamin want to feel complete after heartbreak has ripped their lives to shreds. Pain is the answer to a prayer, even as love sneaks into the equation. Though not always likeable, Benjamin is an understandably, empathetic character. His despair left my heart bleeding and my soul breathless. Elena was more of a paradox. Not easy to figure out, but intriguing to get to know. Narrated by Greenfield and Leigh, Ben and Elena are a taste of real life. Bennett turns heartache in a sensuously, unpredictable wake-up call.

Release Day - Wicked Angel

 

Wicked Angel (Wicked Horse Vegas, Book #6) Sawyer Bennett Release Date: August 6, 2019

 

Synopsis:

 

 

First there was pain, and now there is just… nothing. No one can ever understand the losses I’ve suffered. A solitary existence that consists of my work and the empty house that serves as a constant reminder of all I have lost. After months of paralyzing emptiness, I turn to The Wicked Horse so I can feel something. Anything, really. Any shred of emotion that will explain why I’m still here. Any justification for why my life was spared and theirs were not. It’s all in vain. Not even the debauchery of the notorious sex club can fill the hollowness that consumes me. Until she walks in. Absolutely perfect. Gorgeous and bends to my will. Gives me her body willingly, while expecting nothing more from me than the pleasure I offer her. And the more she gives, the more I find myself wanting to take. Wanting to crawl out of my personal hell for this wicked angel.

About the Author:

 

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists. A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone. Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both. Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.

Making Up - Helena Hunting

This is book #4, in the Shacking Up series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers and gain full understanding of this series, I recommend reading these in order.

 

Cosy has a hard job.  She is Las Vegas, working at an adult toy store.  When Griffin comes in she assumes he is just another perv off the street.  Lots of those in Vegas.

 

Griffin is bowled away by Cosy from the moment they meet.  He just has to figure a way to get her to go out with him.  How will he ever survive a future that could be so blank now that he has met the one?

 

This is in my opinion, this author's best work to date.  The characters feel very real.  Flawed, good looking, and struggling to show excitement for their current situation.  Then they get together and magic! I loved their banter and the heat was sizzling over.  I give this a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
