not for me
Bachelor Games (Tropical Temptation) - D... Bachelor Games (Tropical Temptation) - Daire St. Denis

Becca’s sister Grace was a contestant in the Miss Temptation Pageant .This was the pageant to end all pageants - a mash up between Miss America, and the Bachelor, and Survivor. It was to be Grace's big break.Becca was Grace’s twin but the plain very smart one. Becca runs into Calum as she os getting ready to get on the plane and he is a little rude.  Calum was the youngest billionaire and most eligible bachelor according to a magazine Grace had. Calum was the only judge for the contest. - part of the  the prize was a paid trip to Paris with Calum. P;us there was also a hundred thousand dollar cash prize plus being a contestant in such a big production.  Grace had been doing pageants for twelve years with Becca help for ever pageant. Becca has been taking care of her older sister since they were kids. First it had been bullies then loser boyfriends. Grace was a serial; dater  but also naive and had a lot of  sex and it was her favorite pastime yet Grace was naive and the  guys she dated were losers for the most part. Becca was the plain smart sister and Grace was blonde and gorgeous.Becca had her graduate degree in astrophysics and she had been offered a research position in the Physics department at Cornell University. It was Becca’s dream position.  So Becca was planning to move to NYC where as Grace should head out to LA to be successful.  But Grace had never been on her own and this worried Becca. While on the plane Becca ended up going into first class and was sitting next to Calum and to learn everything she could about him in the next six hours. she was determined. To her surprise Becca wanted Calum. Then Calum and Becca made a bet- after Becca had a lot to drink as she hated to fly-  if she lost she was to join the mile high club and have sex in the bathroom. Becca felt as Calum went it wasn’t fair that he had so many gifts. Becca felt the chemistry for Calum get stronger as time went on. It had been over a year since Becca has sex. At seventeen Calum had graduates from Harvard Business School. Calum and some friends started a small business together buying and flipping houses. They were so successful They were so successful they got into developing condo complexes before partnering with other developers in planning new communities. Once landing Calum was told they had to get rid of some of the girls soon. Fifty was too many. Also there was a meet and greet that night. Then Calum went to his Villa and showered then Jeffery Reid showed up he was the CEO of the resort. But right now Jeffery only knew Calum was a new investor to the resort. When Jeffrey was giving Calum a tour of the resort's grounds he seen Becca and got off the golf cart and he walked down to the beach where Becca was collecting shells. Then they both got knocked over by a wave and Calum ended up over her body to body  then he carried Becca to higher ground and kissed her. Just as Calum was ending the kiss Kevyn yelled to  Calum. Kevyn was the bane of Becca’s HS existence. Then Kevyn asked who the woman was and Calum said no one and Becca thought HS all over again. Kevyn was the only male who had ever come close to destroying her.

I didn’t particularly like this book. I didn’t like how Becca  and Calum interacted in the beginning. Once falling in love with Calum why would Becca be willing to hand Calum over to her sister Grace? Was it just so Becca could go to Cornell and not feel guilty or responsible for Grace anymore? I don’t see why Grace can’t run her own life she was the older sister after all. I think Grace liked Becca taking care of everything for her It didn't ring realistic in anyway to me I know this is a book but still….I like things to be a little believable at least. I like that Calum had overlooked how annoying Becca had been on the plane and also how her looks weren’t that important to him he felt she was good looking But all and all I was very disappointed with this book.

Hotter
Desire - Nine sizzling, romantic tales for Valentine's Day - Bianca D'Arc,Evangeline Anderson,Lauren Hawkeye,Jayne Rylon,Cynthia Sax,Daire St. Denis,Sarah Castille,Avery Aster,Opal Carew,T.L. Stokes

This book was a special Valentine's Day Anthology for the lovers of romance.  It has 9 pretty terrific stories inside.  These stories sure give you choices for what you may be in the mood to read.

 

I read Naughty Wishes, by Sarah Castille.  This author is a "go to" in my purchasing romance titles.  She hits the bar, raises it, and gives me more.  This story was about a couple who have been married a while.  They have need to spice up things, since in the bedroom loving has been somewhat cooler.  Kylie decides to surprise Dan with a night of delight.  He has a surprise for her too.

 

I found that no matter what I read from this book, it made me have the feels.  I really felt like this was a great collection and I hope these authors make another one next year.  I give this anthology a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This copy was given as a gift for the Valentine holiday.

Gets you into the holiday spirit!
A Christmas Seduction (Harlequin Blaze) - Daire St. Denis
A Christmas Seduction by Daire St. Denis
 
Merry Christmas Jolie! Jolie was brought up in a family that didn't celebrate the holiday, heck they didn't even say the word Christmas, but the family always got together on December 25th for a nice dinner before her parents ran off to the hospital. But this year Jolie was doing things differently, she was spending the holiday on a Ranch in Montana, under the guise of work Jolie set out to try new things...and boy did she. Thad was the ranch "hand" and he was more than happy to give Jolie a hand with anything she wanted. The chemistry was great and the two were having a lot of fun, that was until Thad's past caught up with him.

The Cop: Tessa Savage Presents a Wicked One Night Stand (Savage Tales Book 11) by Daire St. Denis
The Cop: Tessa Savage Presents a Wicked One Night Stand (Savage Tales Book 11) - Daire St. Denis

Tessa finds herself walking back to her hotel late one night in a bad part of town. Stupid, right?

 

So, when she gets chased by a man claiming to be a cop, she runs. Good cop or bad cop?

 

It's hard to tell when you're being frisked in a dark alley. All Tessa knows is, if he's good, she plans on corrupting him.

 

If he's bad, well...it's hard to say what she'll do to get away.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have no words for this novella. I honestly don't know what to say about it. Its twenty pages of oddness with an ending that didn't quite win me over. I'm calling it a DNF because I don't know how to rate it.

Review: Sweet Seduction by Daire St. Denis
Sweet Seduction (Harlequin Blaze) - Daire St. Denis

http://witandsin.blogspot.com/2016/02/review-sweet-seduction-by-daire-st-denis.html

 

A sweet baker with some serious skills in the kitchen meets a sexy lawyer with equally serious skills in the bedroom in Sweet Seduction. Daire St. Denis will make you crave cinnamon buns from Nana Sin’s…and perhaps will also leave you wanting a certain handsome lawyer for your own as well.

Sweet Seduction starts off as a simply case of deception. Jamie’s twin, Colin, is a renowned food critic who has run into some problems. He needs Jamie to do the write-up on Nana Sin’s and (good brother that he is) Jamie agrees. Jamie doesn’t expect the instant attraction he feels for Daisy, and now he’s stuck between a rock and a hard place. Fortunately, the deception doesn’t last long, which enables readers to sit back and enjoy Daisy and Jamie’s romance. It’s easy to like both our hero and heroine – they’re likeable, hardworking characters and they have great chemistry in and out of the bedroom.

Where Sweet Seduction falters for me isn’t the romance, but the obstacles in Jamie and Daisy’s path. There are a lot of them in a relatively short book. Daisy’s divorce (and the ethical grey areas Jamie jumps into as a lawyer in this plotline), the threat of losing Nana Sin’s, Daisy’s issues with her mother, Jamie’s concerns about his brother, and Jamie’s past wounds that haven’t healed all vie for page space. Fortunately, the multiple issues Jamie and Daisy must face don’t overtake the romance. Unfortunately, there is so much going on that none of it is ever truly fleshed out. This does the story a disservice and left me wanting more. If the book was longer or there were fewer backstories/subplots relevant to it, the story would have been a far more satisfying read. Still, Daisy and Jamie were likeable characters, their romance was steamy, and I enjoyed the supporting characters in Sweet Seduction so much that I will definitely be reading the sequel, Big Sky Seduction.
