When a gorgeous caterer cooks up the perfect event and catches Cam’s eye, he proposes an innovative arrangement they’ll both benefit from. Lauren Brody knows Cam’s plan is crazy, but pretending to be his fiancée will allow her access to networking at events she’d never get into otherwise. It could be just the break she needs to get her catering business on the map and book the kind of clients she’s always dreamed of cooking for. If she can convince Mr. Buttoned Up Tight to have some unscheduled fun along the way, theirs could be a perfect arrangement.

About CATCHING THE PLAYER:

 

Kassidy Thomas decided to stop hiding behind her past, and start living, but she didn’t quite bet on that start including her singing a horrible song in front of the handsomest bachelor in the NFL, Wyatt Hamilton. She also doesn’t think he’d then consequently ask her out on a date, but turns out when you’re actually living life…crazy things happen. He needs to win… Wyatt Hamilton is a player in every sense of the word. Married to the game, he has no interest in relationships, love, or even second nights with the same woman. But from the second the girl-next-door beauty Kassidy knocks on his door to deliver a singing telegram, nothing goes as planned. He can’t stop thinking about her, and keeps showing up on her doorstep for more. That is, until the unthinkable happens… And all bets are off.

His Convenient Husband (Love and Sports, #1)His Convenient Husband by Robin Covington
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Isaiah & Victor have a flash of sexy in their past that may come back to bite them. Isaiah is offering to help Victor stay here in America. To go home for him would be death. Isaiah struggles with this, since he is very attracted to Victor and has a hard time staying hands off.

Victor is starting to have real feelings for Isaiah. He finds the many parts of his personality very attractive and knows he is falling for him. How do you find love when the person you care for has no interest in falling?

This book was really sexy. I loved the interaction with the characters. The pages sizzle with electricity from the main characters chemistry. I love that the backstories of both are varied, diverse, and very real and easy to understand. Really good read.

The Billionaire's Private Scandal
The Billionaire's Private Scandal - Jenn... The Billionaire's Private Scandal - Jenna Bayley-Burke


I'm going to start my review off a bit different and tell you why I didn't like this book. Well, why I didn't WANT to like it anyway...
  1. Miscommunication trope: Yep, the entire plot is a miscommunication. A simple, straightforward conversation could have cleared it all up. By the time they actually have that conversation though, the trust is ruined.
  2. Dysfunctional/toxic relationship: What Brandon and Megan have is toxic. She is insecure and isn't honest with him because she is so sure every man will behave exactly like her father. And he does things he things are for her, but really he never bothers to find out anything REAL about her to know if its what she would want. Combine that with the stalking and demanding behavior, and I was left thinking that these two would be better off apart.

Ok, those 2 problems plagued me while I read. But you know what? I read the whole book in 1 sitting because it was like a train wreck. I couldn't NOT see it through. My heart went out to Megan. She was a rich girl with self esteem issues and is now a VERY poor girl, working 2 jobs and barely surviving. Her dad's betrayal stung, and it happened at the same time she caught her boyfriend kissing another girl. I didn't think I would enjoy the 'poor little rich girl' trope, but Megan is genuinely likable. She doesn't hide the fact that she was narcissistic and self centered when she had money. She didn't even graduate high school! So, when the book starts out with her broke, she doesn't sugar coat her previous life. She turns this event into a wake up call for herself on how ill prepared she was. It was actually really empowering.

They eventually get the misunderstanding thing out in the open. But these two have to be the most stubborn, immature characters ever. How Brandon became a billionaire is a mystery to me because he never seems that bright or thoughtful! I understood why Brandon made the decisions he made, and I understand why Megan felt the way she felt. But, I never quite warmed up to Brandon because he seemed to think that because he did what he did for a reason, he should be forgiven now that that reason turns out to be bad. It was frustrating. So, for Megan, the book was 4 stars. For Brandon, the book was 1 star. For the fact I devoured it like pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, the book gets 5 stars. So, I am averaging it: 5 + 4 +1=10/3=3.3 stars! (ok, so 3.5!)

 
  • POV: 3rd (another reason this might have been a difficult read; when a story is character driven, I tend to prefer 1st person)
  • Tears: I did cry a few times (especially when I learned she had to give up her dog!)
  • Trope: miscommunication
  • Triggers: none
  • Series/Standalone: stand alone
  • Cliffhanger: no
  • HEA: yes, the end up together; am I happy about it? I'm not sure.

good story and characters
The Billionaire's Private Scandal - Jenna Bayley-Burke

Brandon stopped at the coffee shop there was Meagan and he couldn’t believe it. Megan was a socialite with a trust fund deep enough to buy this shop one hundred times over. Megan was suppose to be on a beach while her father avoided extradition for embezzlement. Yet Megan was here in front of Brandon- a smaller angrier version of the hotel heiress Brandon loved. Megand had not made Brandon’s drink she refused to and quit her job. Brandon begged Megan to talk to him even said that Megan owed him some kind of an explanation. Megan said she owed Brandon nothing that he was  a liar and a cheat and she never wanted to see him again. Megan was intensely private and no one had known Megan and Brandon had been together for the last seven years. Megan was great at putting on a show and making the world think she had it all together even when things were falling apart. Megan shot the cup of coffee at Brandon before she quit. But Brandon followed her to her apartment. Brandon couldn’t believe the way Megan was living. Megan remembered back when she had went to a party with her older sister Ava at Brandon’s house and Megan had set her sights on Brandon. Brandon was fresh out of military school and wanted to have some fun. Every time Brandon turned Megan down she wanted him more. Megan even lost all interest in boys at school. Megan’s heart squeezed when she thought of how naive she had been to think she could change the world without it changing her. Megan seriously slept an hour at a time and usually jolted awake by a sound that terrified her. Soon Megan would have enough money to take some computer classes. She had already earned her GED in the last year. While at Brandon’s house the dog her had bought her - Cash- a cockapoo comes running to her and all Megan’s walls crumbled. Then Megan thought maybe she should take a page out of her sister Ava’s book. Brandon had said he wanted to put a ring on Megan’s finger but never bought one and he said he wanted them to become public with their relationship  but never asked her out. The hope is what devastated her when she was going to Brandon for some answers and help  on her birthday and saw him kissing Gemma then they went into his apartment. She had given Brandon her virginity - her first love, and first and only lover.

I loved most of this story. But I didn’t particularly liked the way the ending was written I felt it was just rushed. I like what it entailed just not how it was written. Otherwise I loved the story and the plot. I loved how much Brandon had truly loved Megan and never gave up on finding her and being back with her. I also loved how Megan loved him right back but was so lost and hurt. I felt bad for everything she had went through with no one to really turn to. I felt bad how hurt and confused and how she hadn’t felt safe in a long time. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.

The Billionaire's Private Scandal
The Billionaire's Private Scandal - Jenna Bayley-Burke Pride, insecurities and betrayal set the stage for a complicated, frustrating and dramatic romance. Without trust there can never be love. Megan and Brandon built a relationship based on lust and confused it with love. When the storm came, their foundation wasn't strong enough to withstand the fall out. Self destructive behavior, misunderstandings and secrets toppled what was thought to be an everlasting love. Will regret and forgiveness offer up a second chance? The Billionaire's Private Scandal had a strong start but the race to the finish line stalled. The constant back and forth, gave me a touch of whiplash. I wish the main characters had worked things out sooner.
