great story, great characters
Merry Christmas Baby: Rockstar Secret Ba... Merry Christmas Baby: Rockstar Secret Baby Holiday Romance - Marie Cole

Carrie worked at the Historic Liberty Hotel. Carrie had a six year old son named Brent . The day after HS graduation Brent’s father Shawn told Carrie if she really loved him she would let him go explore his dream of making it big in the world of rock and roll. Carrie had let Shawn go even though she still loved him. Six weeks later Carrie found out she was pregnant and kept it to herself. Shawn had made it big his first record went platinum on their son Brent’s birthday. It had been six years and Shawn had never come back. Then Carrie found out the VIP guest at the hotel was actually Shawn but he wasn’t alone. Shawn had agreed to help Tansy as a favor to her publicist but Tansy was living up to her name Hansy Tansy and Shawn couldn’t take the groping anymore. He needed a break. Shawn had the same feeling that haunted him every time he went home and crossed the GA border - carrie Abbott- . Then Shawn recognized Carrie but she acted like he was just another guest. Carrie’s roommate was Connor and Carrie had Connor bring Brent to the hotel as she still had a lot to do for work. Tansy pointed out Carrie’s child maybe Shawns and when Shawn confronts Carrie she admits that Brent us his son.

This was a great novella. A great short second romance story and I loved it. I read it in one sitting. It was short but wasn’t missing anything. I only wish it had been longer. It made me smile at times and choke up at times. I loved the ending. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend.

Honest
Two for the Show - Megan Derr

This is book # 4 in the Lovesongs series also known as The Missing Butterfly Series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  Be aware that it may contain spoilers.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading in order.

 

Nikko has a family crisis he must see to.  He was told by his lawyer to create a scandal so the paparazzi won't find out the personal.  Nikko gets his chance with a kiss to what he believes is a man beyond his reach.

 

Jake is shocked but pleased to be the quarry of a man such as Nikko.  Then to find out it is only pretend.... well he might as well go along.  Why waste the chance with a man he is seriously attracted to?

 

This story just grabbed me from the get go.  Emotional, sexy, and the heat!  Oh this story has more than enough to keep you turning the pages.  I loved the banter between the characters.  The recurring ones from past books add the perfect snark.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Blog Tour w/Review - Explicitly Yours

 

 

Mika Joie

Explicitly Yours
A Platonically Complicated Novella
Release Date Oct. 10, 2017

 

 

Marriage.

 

The final frontier. The end of dating. The number one cause of divorce.

 

I bet you every man who is about to take the plunge experiences a wide range of feelings. As a guy, whose wedding day is only seven days away, I know this.

 

Anxiety—Nerves are kicking in. Yeah, even confident, cocky guys like me are bound to face nuptial stage fright.

 

Let’s face it, forever is kind of a long time, right?

 

Excitement—Coriander and I are going to make it official. I’m marrying my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with.

 

Nothing can top this moment.

 

That is until I got the biggest surprise of my life…

Explicitly Yours Excerpt:

All relationships have one law, never make the one you love feel alone, especially when you’re there.”

 

Dean

 

CORI AND I are waiting.

 

Waiting to see if we are bringing a new life into the world. Every second feels like an hour.

 

Two lines or one?

 

In two minutes, we will find out if a mini version of us will be calling me dad. I am hoping with every fiber of my being that the result will not let Cori down.

 

She wants this.

 

Surprisingly, so do I.

 

My stomach is a roller coaster of emotions. With each passing second my excitement builds, reaching new heights, and then fear brings me crashing back down again.

 

Cori is sitting on the bed, legs crisscrossed, chewing her bottom lip, twisting one loop of hair around her finger. “You’re okay? We’re okay?”

 

Always, Moonchild.” I’m pacing, from the wall to the door, throwing a glance every few seconds at my Rolex. One more minute to go. This reminds me of that Velveeta commercial that used to be on TV, where one minute feels like a million.

 

A part of me wants to run inside the bathroom and take a peek, but the other part of me feels heavy and scared to look.

 

Who would have thought that the possibility of becoming a father could elicit such a strong surge of emotions?

 

My phone vibrates. Time’s up. I drag my palm along my jaw, take a steady breath, and say, “I’ll get it.”

 

Okay.”

 

Here goes nothing. I stride on shaky legs toward the bathroom. Once there, I close my eyes, count to ten, then glance at the stick sitting on the vanity. My heart does a stupid somersault, and then I swear it stops . . . just fucking stops for a long second before it starts beating again.

 

 

 

 

 

Explicitly Yours - A Platonically Complicated NovellaExplicitly Yours - A Platonically Complicated Novella

by Mika Jolie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is probably what I would consider The Boy Friend #1.5. This should not be meant to be a standalone read. It takes place following The Boy Friend. I recommend reading them in order to avoid spoilers.

Coriander AKA "Cori" is going to finally marry Dean. We leave off 6 months after the last book ended, with this couple so happy together officially. Cori just has secrets she is afraid to approach with Dean.

Dean has so much love for his bride to be. All he wishes is that she would communicate with him so they can solve what is wrong. He knows he will do anything for his dear Cori.

This is such a sweet, if short jaunt back into the lives of our favorite couple. Trying to keep their bliss, they encounter some rough spots on the way to matrimony. Worth the simple and hot read.

Excerpt:

 

 

“Mmmmm, that looks good.”


The comment grabs my attention, and I find myself smiling for the first time since I left Bristol. As she walks toward me, the approaching sunset paints the roof in shadows, but I see her clearly. Dark hair, burnished in places, falls around her shoulders. She has already discarded the dress she wore at lunch today in favor of a T-shirt and nothing else; it’s the one I just tossed into the hamper.


She tugs at my HABITUAL LINE STEPPER T-shirt, the hem landing at the top of her thighs. Where the T-shirt stops, my eyes keep going, past the lean muscles of her legs and the cut of her calves, the delicate bones of her ankles and to her bare feet. I love this girl, head to toe. Beyond this gorgeous packaging, it’s everything beneath that makes me beyond grateful she’s mine. The loyalty, the bottomless pit that is her heart, her sense of humor. The toughest girl I know is also the most tender, and I’m so honored I get to see both sides, all her sides.


“You out of clean clothes?” I nod to my T-shirt. “You gotta wear my dirty stuff now?”


An impish smile tugs at her bare lips. She’s washed away her makeup, and with it, all the sophistication she wraps around herself for her job. Up on this roof in my T-shirt, she’s just my girl. I love her in every iteration, but this is the one only I get to see, so it’s probably my favorite.


“I have clean clothes.” She steps close enough for me to smell her scent and mine mingling in the fabric. “I like the way this shirt smells.”


I drop a look over her, my eyes resting on the curves of her breasts in the soft cotton, where her nipples have gone taut under my stare.


“How does the shirt smell?” I ask, my voice as smoky as the steaks I should be paying attention to.


“Like you.” She leans forward until her breasts press into my chest. “It smells like you.”


My hands are twitching to touch her, and I finally surrender, slipping under the shirt to grasp her waist, pulling her up the few inches until our lips meet. I’ve been thinking about these steaks all day, and before Bristol arrived, I thought I was starving—but this, what I feel having her in my arms after hours apart, this is starving. It starts in my balls and tunnels up through my chest, infiltrates my heart, and presses its way to my mouth, which is open and devouring in a lips-searching, tongues-dueling kiss. I grip her by the ass, grinding our bodies together until the texture of her skin and mine, the scents of her skin and mine meld into this one panting, voracious thing that never seems to get enough.


“You better not burn my steak,” Bristol pants in between kisses.


I angle my head to send my tongue deeper into her mouth, holding her still, teasing her until she’s straining up, open and begging when I pull back.


“Grip.” My name is a whimpering complaint. She cups my neck and tugs my head back down.


“Oh, no.” I resist, laugh, and turn to the grill. “You were so concerned about me burning these steaks, Ms. Medium Rare.”


“I am.” She slides her arms around me from behind and I feel a sweet sting, her teeth gently biting my shoulder through my T-shirt. I love it when she bites me, but I’m not giving her that satisfaction yet. “But that doesn’t mean you get to stop kissing me. You have to multitask.”


One slim hand slides over my abs and past my belt to cup me through my jeans.


Damn. Not sure how long I can keep up this charade that I don’t want to screw her into the wall on the roof where anyone with half a telescope could see.


“Wow,” I say, keeping my tone unaffected, though she’s gotta feel me getting longer and harder in her hand. “Somebody’s horny as hell.”


She makes a sound that’s half outraged laughter, half indignant grunt before stepping around to stand in front of me by the grill.


“I will not be slut-shamed by my own boyfriend.” Amusement lights her eyes, turning them to quicksilver.


“Shamed?” I put down the grilling fork I’m using for the steaks and reach for her again.

 

“No shame in being horny for me, baby. I wanna give you a gold star.”


Her eyes slide down to the erection poking her in the stomach. “Is that what we’re calling it now? Should we name it?”


“Guys who have to name their dicks probably aren’t using ’em right.”


“So I ask again . . . should we name it?”


I cock a brow and press our hips together.


“Are you implying that I don’t know how to use mine? Because that’s not the impression I got this morning when you came so hard you were singing like a bird.”


She tilts her head, her eyes wide and considering. “Did you say like a bird?” A small smile plays around her lips. “What made you say that?”


“I don’t know.” I give a careless shrug. “Why?”


“It’s silly,” she says, rolling her eyes in self-derision. “I was thinking today when I laughed it sounded like . . .”


Bristol blushes about once every Halley’s Comet, so the color washing across her cheeks makes me wonder.


“What?” I probe. “Your laugh sounded like what?”


“Like a happy bird,” she mumbles, peering up at me like I’m going to laugh in her face.
Which I do.


“Stop laughing at me.” She narrows her eyes in mock warning.


“Right.” I dip my head to catch her eyes and tease her. “Because when you tell me you laugh like a happy bird I’m just supposed let you get away with that.”


“I’m not telling you things anymore.” She narrows her eyes and folds her arms over her chest.


“Yeah, right. I’m your best friend.” I pull her back into me. “You’ll tell me everything like you always do.”


“You are, you know.” Her voice softens. “My best friend, I mean.”


When she looks at me like this, her eyes stripped of every defense, no guard in sight, completely honest and open and vulnerable, I feel slightly invincible. It’s a trick of the heart, I know, but I can’t help but think that as long as she looks at me like this, there isn’t anything I couldn’t survive, that our love is the stuff of legends, rolled in Teflon, disaster-proof. I’m as fanciful as Bristol, my laughing bird.


“You’re mine, too,” I echo her sentiment. “My best friend.”


“I won’t tell Rhyson,” she promises with a grin.


“I’m pretty sure he spits the same line to Kai.” I keep a straight face. “We have to say that shit to get laid.”


“I hate you.”


“Orrrrrrrrr do you love me and want to blow me after dinner?” I shrug and lift my hands, my palms up. “Just saying. Listen to your heart, Bristol. Listen to your heart.”


“I’m listening to my belly right now, smartass, and it’s growling. Feed me.”


“Like my mama used to say, ain’t no freeloaders in this house. What’ll you give me for feeding you?”


“Um . . .”


“I do have a suggestion, if you’re searching.”


“Let me guess—you have a ‘Will fuck for food’ sign up here somewhere?”


“I used bubble letters.” I laugh and give her ass a light smack. “You can barter that booty.”


It’s so damn easy with Bristol—our banter, the chemistry, the perfect rhythm of our conversation. It was one of the first things I noticed when we met all those years ago. We didn’t read each other’s minds or finish each other’s sentences. It wasn’t cosmic, but it was a connection that seized me by the brain and grabbed me by the balls. She was as smart as she was sexy, as curious as she was forthcoming. There were years in between when we made things complicated, when things were strained, but now with our hearts settled on each other for good, it’s simple.


This.


Her.


Us.

 

 

 

 

STILL (Grip Book 2)STILL by Kennedy Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 2nd book in the GRIP series. This series is a spin off to the acclaimed Soul series by the same author. I recommend reading these titles in order to avoid spoilers and enjoy the series for what it is.

Marlon AKA Grip & Bristol's story continues in this heartfelt novel of love and all that it colors in your life. It took him eight years to convince Bristol to give him a chance he has no intention of blowing. All around him there are factors at work trying to sabotage the relationship he has finally won.

Bristol feels like she is on a learning curve. There is so much about Grip's life she is still adapting to. She does not want to give him any regrets for choosing her. Only there is so much coming neither of them is prepared for.......

This was truly an emotional read. With such a beautiful story, even the words are very poetic and I find myself wishing I had them set to music that I could listen to. Like the other books in this amazing series - it slowly takes a hold of your heart and squeezes. These are characters that will live on in my heart for a good long while. I sure hope to see more of these deep and interesting characters.

Rock Me (Bodyguard Bad Boys, #1)Rock Me by Carly Phillips
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ben gets a job protecting Summer for the second time. They have a seriously hot past from the first time he was her bodyguard. Now he is trying to keep his hands and other body parts off of her.

Summer knows that everything went wrong for her and Ben the last time. She never thought she would get this chance to tell him the truth about what happened. Can he ever trust her again?

This smoking hot story was such an easy read. I devoured each page like it was my last! I cannot wait to read more in the Bodyguard Bad Boys series.
