Heart of a Bad Boy
Heart of a Bad Boy - Sugar Jamison Heart of a Bad Boy - Sugar Jamison Ms. Jamison knows how to create a heartthrob. I received an ARC of Heart of the Bad Boy by Sugar Jamison in exchange for an honest review. The King brothers are worthy of some serious salivating. Tough on the outside but marshmallows on the inside. What woman wouldn't love that?Add the complicated history between these alpha men and their hometown of Destiny, you get stories of redemption and triumph. Heart of a Bad Boy is baby brother Levi's story. With the many upsets in his life Levi's sense of stability was almost non-existent. Family tragedy, physical abuse and prejudice were abundant fixtures within his childhood. There was a bright spot though. His best friend Shelly who looked beyond the renegade and saw the heart of a lost boy. Circumstances separated them but the ingenuity of a shrewd old woman and the pull of family bonds make for a love story that proves to be a combination sweet and salty good time. Have a soft spot for those bad boys and Sugar Jamison delivers.

Betting the Bad Boy
Betting the Bad Boy: The Bad Boys of Destiny - Sugar Jamison

I received this as an ARC through Netgalley.

 

I didn't like Duke.  He was an overbearing dick.  Grace, with her thirteen year old kid, was ridiculous.  While speaking to him, she referred to herself as "mommy" several times.  I'm surprised she didn't call Duke "daddy".

Betting the Bad Boy: The Bad Boys of Destiny
Betting the Bad Boy: The Bad Boys of Destiny - Sugar Jamison Duke and Grace had a connection that outsiders didn't understand. He was the troubled bad boy. She was the rich girl who had a bright future. Love brought them together. Prejudice and hate tore them apart. I received an ARC of Betting the Bad Boy in exchange for an honest review. Lolly is a wonderful character. She gives these boys the nurturing they need direct to the point and with a sassy comeback every time. She's the missing piece to a less than perfect life for Duke, Colt and Levi. It is hard not to fall for Duke. Rough around the edges he has endured a lot of pain in his young life but has worked his tail off to make a better life for himself and his brothers. The Kings are not an easy family but are bonded by a past that would break anyone and are still standing.
This is a story of young love that developed into heartache but was stronger than all the persecution faced. Sugar Jamison is a lot like Lolly in that she is direct and to the point but compassionate. I love this series and am looking forward to Levi's story.

The Bad Boy CEO
The Bad Boy CEO - Sugar Jamison The Bad Boy CEO is an amazing story. I requested an ARC of Sugar Jamison's novel from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed meeting the King brothers. The school of hard knocks taught them growing up that they could only rely on each other. Duke, Colt and Levi used the lessons learned from a dark childhood and have become successful business men. I am so hoping Ms. Jamison makes a series out of these brothers. Any story centered around brooding sexy males would be worth a look. Throughout the story there were hints of a series so I hope it will be followed through.

The Bad Boy CEO is the middle brother, Colt's story. In no way could Colt be describe as wearing his heart on his sleeve. He keeps his emotions stored away and focuses on making money for the business he and his brothers own. The human calculator (my nickname for Colt) uses work to escape all the pain from his past. Zanna has endured her share of heartache. In order to make a fresh start she left the past behind and moved on literally. New location, new people everything was going fine until Colt comes along and upends everything. Sugar Jamison is an author that is on the verge of big things. She took a story of heartbreak and bitterness and turned it into a sweet, sexy, gutsy novel that is just as filled with laughter as it is tears. I loved it.

Nothing makes you more resistant to falling in love than have been cheated on.

 

Here are some wonderful Contemporary Romances with heroes or heroines that overcome the hurt to trust and love again.

 

 

My lists are never in any particular order. Enjoy!

 

1. Just My Luck  by Rosalind James

 

Nate Torrance has a job to do, and the biggest rugby boots in the world to fill. He can’t afford to lose his focus, especially not to a brown-eyed Canadian who pushes all his buttons and looks much too good in a climbing harness. 

Allison Villiers may not know what she wants to do with her life, but she’s clear about one thing. She’s not impressed by the new captain of the All Blacks, however big a deal he is to the rest of New Zealand. If only her unfortunate taste for adventure didn’t keep leading her astray ... 

 

2. Tucked Away by Jennie Marts

 

Charlie Ryan's cheating fiancé left her with a broken heart and even broker bank account. She's hit rock bottom, but everything is about to change. Suddenly, she's inherited a Montana farm named Tucked Away from a grandmother she never knew existed. A fresh start is just what she needs - and no men in her future this time, even if the local vet is as hot as a Montana summer.

 

Zack Cooper is content with his simple life. Running his veterinary practice and raising his daughter are enough to keep him busy, and he doesn't need a high-maintenance city girl like his ex who plans to sell her grandma's ranch and split faster than a setting sun. So why can't he stop thinking about Charlie and her hot-pink cowboy boots...and the way her eyes say she wants to stay while her lips tease him with plans of leaving?

 

Just when both start to believe love might be worth the risk...one night will change everything.

 

3. Your Room or Mine? by Charlotte Phillips

 

1 cheating ex, 3 bottles of white wine, an emergency pep talk from the girls… and this seemed like a good idea at the time:

 

Izzy Shaw’s Getting-Over-Him Action List

 

1. eBay his entire collection of football memorabilia and spend all profits on treating myself to fabulous new wardrobe.
2. Turn plans for ‘Loved-Up Mini-Break’ at exclusive boutique hotel into a weekend of spa pampering, me-time and shopping at Harvey Nics.
3. Don’t get even, get even better. Have one night stand with drop-dead gorgeous stranger – Mr Tall, Dark & Handsome in the hotel lobby is just what I need!

 

Your room or mine? Go on Izzy…

 

4. Love Kinection by Jennifer James

 

Love, romance, hearts, flowers, cupid…. Rubbish. 

Abby Fine still hasn’t gotten over the pain of a year-old betrayal and plans to spend this Valentine’s Day drowning her sorrows with a ménage of men named Ben, Jerry, and Riesling. 

Her plans are diverted when she drops and breaks her new iPhone and gives in to a momentary hormone surge, agreeing to let office hottie and tech god Tom Walker squirm his way into her condo to fix it. 

Tom shows up with his Xbox, spicy Chinese food, and a habit of stealing kisses every time she lets her guard down. 

Can a weekend of laughter, video games, and movies change Abby’s opinion of stupid Cupid?

 

5. Wrong Bed, Right Guy by Katee Robert

 

Prim and proper art gallery coordinator Elle Walser is no good at seducing men. Heck, she's been throwing hints at her boss for months, but he's completely clueless. Desperate to escape her mother's matchmaking efforts, she comes up with a plan--buy some lingerie and climb into her boss's bed. The plan goes brilliantly…until she accidentally seduces a sexy stranger instead. Bad boy nightclub mogul Gabe Schultz just had the best almost-sex of his life. Too bad the smoking hot blonde thought he was his brother and bolted before he could finish what they started. Though her holier-than-thou attitude puts a serious damper his mood, Gabe's never been one to give up on something he wants. And he wants Elle. But does a man who lives on the dark side really have a chance with a proper lady?

 

6. Dangerous Curves Ahead by Sugar Jamison

 

Ellis Garrett is dumping her critical boyfriend, opening a plus-size clothing store, and starting a blog--all to spread the word that fashion shouldn't require a size-two body, and happiness should allow for the occasional cupcake. Or two. But is indulging fantasies about her sister's long-ago ex, the still-hunky Michael Edwards, biting off more than she can chew?


Mike must be losing his detective's touch. He doesn't recognize Ellis when he bumps into her at Size Me Up, and he certainly doesn't remember his ex-girlfriend's outspoken sister being so irresistible. Her curves are indeed dangerous--and so is her wit. Could it be that Ellis is his Perfect Fit? One thing's for sure: Mike will make it his sworn duty to find out…

 

7. Shame On You by Tara Sivec

 

War veteran Kennedy O’Brien is in the business of sticking it to the man—or at least any man who tries to cross a woman. After she returned home from Afghanistan and caught her husband in bed with the nanny, Kennedy lost her faith in men and started Fool Me Once Investigations with her two best friends. After all, there’s no better bounty hunter than a woman scorned.

 

When Kennedy takes a case to slap cuffs on a bail jumper turned dog-napper, she figures it’ll be an easy paycheck. But trouble has a way of finding Kennedy. Enter the last man on the planet she’d willingly choose as a partner: her cheating ex-husband’s best friend, Griffin Crawford.

 

As gorgeous as he is unwelcome, Griffin has always had a thing for Kennedy, and after keeping quiet about her ex’s cheating, he’ll do anything to earn back her trust. Whether or not she wants to admit it, Kennedy will need help as the case of the Chihuahua thief spirals out of control. Griffin may be just her man—in more ways than one.

 

8. In Another Man's Bed by Francis Ray

 

When Justine Crandall walks in on her husband of six years with another woman, she flees their home, declaring he'll never see her again. And her wish almost comes true when his car careens off a cliff in his pursuit of her. Hours later she finds herself in a hospital, faced with a terrible choice. Will she disconnect his life support because he was a liar and a cheat or because it's the humane thing to do? Or…should she keep faith that he'll revive from his coma? In the meantime, an old love reappears making the decision even more difficult, pitting her heart against her conscience. Justine finds that soon she must choose: be with a man who truly loves her and puts her first, or honor her marriage vows.

 

9. You Dropped a Blonde on Me by Dakota Cassidy

The more Max tries to show him he's wrong, the more she rediscovers her long-retired mojo. Now, she's ready to throw down some payback on her ex-life and fight for what she deserves...

 

10. Female Intelligence by Jane Heller

 

Lynn Wyman is a linguist with her own call-in radio show, a bestselling book and a very unique private practice in which she teaches “The Wyman Method” – sensitivity training for men who want to communicate better with the women in their lives. 

She’s about to score her own national TV gig too – until she discovers that her sensitive husband has been “communicating” with another woman in their bedroom and that the media is about to find out. So much for her marriage and her high-profile career. 

She consoles herself by spending time with her group of close girlfriends. She’s with all of them one night when she picks up Fortune magazine’s “America’s Toughest Bosses” issue with macho CEO Brandon Brock on the cover. 

She lights on an idea. To restore her reputation, all she has to do is snag the notorious chauvinist as a client, take a cue from “My Fair Lady” and turn the pig into her own Pygmalion. If she can transform Brandon Brock into a sensitive man, she’ll have her life back. 

Just one hitch. Somebody has been out to sabotage Lynn’s happiness as well as he professional success, and before she can reclaim her career – and win Brandon’s love – she’d better figure out who it is.
