Good Story and Good Characters
Make Me Want - Rebecca Brooks

Tyler had been through some recent heartbreaking trauma when his best friend died in a fire. Now he had a need to protect others to compensate for losing him. Abbie had to be independent  from trauma - when she was a teen and Abbi had been taken advantage of by a teacher that wrecked her self esteem. She also had a less than ideal view of what to expect from men. Abbi had survived the trauma from when she was a teen but she had never dealt with it,  Tyler is a wildland firefighter but he is running from the memories of his best friend. Tyler takes a temporary job at Gold Mountain. He definitely knows about the devastation of a fire that gets out of control. He had needed to get away from L A to get his priorities straight. Tyler is there to  help set up a firebreak to protect the town. Also having this successful venture on hso resume will mean some good prospects in the future.he wants to get in, get the job done and be on his way to to fire safety management somewhere else. Tyler is at a bar and Abbi’s best friend sends Tyler over to pretend to be Abbi’s new boyfriend. As Russ was Abbi ex boyfriend who was harassing her and planning to be involved with the construction of the firebreak.  Now they have to learn to be a fake couple so russ will leave Abbi alone as he is still very possessive of her and hasn’t let go. Abbi decides her and tyler can spend the night together. But just that night. Abbi works at a local nature center and her job is to prevent the firebreak from being built. As it would destroy the habitat of some endangered animals. Abbi believes the firebreak is a waste of time and money. The next day Abbi is at work and Tyler shows up at her job as a consultant in the firebreak project that Abbi si determined to get cancelled. Abbi’s view on life, love and relationships with men are all influenced by the trauma she received as a teen. Abbi thinks the worst of anyone who tried to help her. Abbi fights her feeling for Tyler. Tyler saves Abbi’s life but she wasn't very grateful in her actions.  

I enjoyed this book. It was a quick, easy read but it was also emotional. With two people on opposite sides of an issue. Abbi made it clear Tyler she was only in it for the sex and wanted nothing more. I choked up at times  while reading this book. I really enjoyed the suspense and action in this book. I felt bad for Tyler as well as Abbi for they pain they still carried form what had happened to them. Tyler and Abbi definitely had hot chemistry and II liked them together. I’m glad Tyler was patient but also determined to prove to Abbi he’s not like the other men she knew. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it.

Dashing: A Royal Cinderella Billionaire Story by Sophie Brooks
Dashing: A Royal Cinderella Billionaire Story - Sophie Brooks

 

 

Brooks takes the sweetest elements of a childhood story and gives them an adult twist. Dashing takes sweet and spicy up a notch. Nikolaus may be a prince, but Cara has him questioning more than just his title. Cara has the heart of a queen. She cares deeply, gives generously and loves unconditionally. With the odds not pointing in their favor, each has to decide if falling in love is worth the risk? Dashing is a blast from the past that's worth a modern revisit.

BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Wrong Bed, Right Roommate (Accidental Love #1) by Rebecca Brooks
Wrong Bed, Right Roommate (Accidental Love #1) - Rebecca Brooks

It’s not every day you wake up to a stranger getting into your bed.
Only, he isn’t a stranger at all, he’s my best friend’s hot older brother…and apparently my new roommate.
Having him in my space, driving me crazy, isn’t a problem at all. Nope.
All I need to do is keep control of the situation…

 

But that’s easier said than done.
Shawn Lassiter is the kind of distraction I don’t need.
First he accidentally gets into my bed, half-naked, the night before my first day at my new job.
Hello, muscles and tattoos!
Then he’s there, in nothing but a towel, making me coffee in the morning.
It’s more than any girl can resist. Right?
But Shawn is off-limits, even if his eyes are saying differently.

 

Years ago, back when I still had my crush, he destroyed friendships with his reckless playboy antics.
There’s no way I’m touching those perfectly formed abs now. I don’t care how nice and responsible he’s acting.
I don’t want a boyfriend anyway. That’s what my trusty vibrator is for.
I’m the smart girl—the glasses-wearing, book-reading workaholic. I can totally do this.
After all, it’s only for two and a half months.
I’ll be on my best behavior…even if Shawn isn’t.

Don’t look at him. Don’t think about him. Don’t even make eye contact.

 

Jessie gave herself the best pep talk she could before she opened her bedroom door the next morning.

 

So she’d had an explosive orgasm fantasizing about her roommate, who she’d known for years and who was completely off-limits. She could be totally normal running into him again.

 

Normal, non-sexual, focused, friendly, and roommate-like. Not at all as though she’d imagined lifting her legs in the air as he drilled into her, grabbing his tight ass to make him fuck her harder while she screamed his name in his ear.

 

Nope, none of that had ever occurred to her. She might as well be a nun for how chaste she was. She went to work, came home, did more work at home, and went to bed. If Shawn asked her what she did last night, obviously that was all she’d say. Without blushing. Or stammering. Or fainting at his feet.

 

If she even saw him—which she was seriously hoping she wouldn’t. She hadn’t heard him come in last night, which meant it must have been late. There was no way he’d be up this early, anyway.

 

She grabbed a clean towel from her closet. She’d shower, get dressed, and then make coffee once she was totally put together. Even though their little breakfast date wasn’t going to happen again, she didn’t want to risk hanging around in her pajamas.

 

Don’t worry, you’re not going to see him, she reminded herself. But just as she swung open her door, there he was, opening his door at the exact same time.

 

She jumped in surprise.

 

“Sorry,” he said with a sleepy smile. “Didn’t mean to startle you.”

 

“I wasn’t—” she started, fumbling over her words.

 

It didn’t help that he was wearing nothing but a towel wrapped low around his waist, exposing the full glory of his chest, his pecs, that wild tattoo across his shoulder, and the line of hair below his navel that she hadn’t been able to stop thinking about last night.

 

Put on some goddamn clothes! she wanted to scream.

 

Instead, she cleared her throat and tried again.

 

“I didn’t think you’d be up,” she said as smoothly as possible, even though her heart was fluttering like it had wings.

 

“Did you sleep well?” he asked.

 

She could have sworn his eyes crinkled and looked away, just past her shoulder instead of at her.

 

Or maybe that was how she was looking at him, peeking through the doorway behind him since she was afraid that if she made eye contact, she’d go up in flames.

 

I slept great after fantasizing about you fucking me hard while I came on my vibrator, a teasing voice sang in her head.



 

 

 

 

 

 

Wrong Bed, Right RoommateWrong Bed, Right Roommate by Rebecca Brooks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jessie and Shawn have known one another for a long time, since he is her best friend's older brother. She has tried hard to not be attracted to the player. She even promised her friend she was not interested.

Shawn does not even remember the little friend his sister has had for so long. He just needs a place to crash, since he starts a new job in such a foreign place as New York. The lust he feels for her suddenly is not welcome.

This book is what one would call a slow burn. I love that they can find common ground. I found the characters to be full of heart, heat, and a fun joy to read. I am excited to see more of what will come in this series.

Author Bio:

 

Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx.

 

Her books are about independent women who leave their old lives behind to try something new–and find the passion, excitement and purpose they didn’t know they’d been missing.
