The Billionaire's Betrayal (Billionaire, #2)
The Billionaire's Betrayal (Billionaire, #2) - Mika Lane Lovable or not plays no factor in the attraction of a Mika Lane character. The Billionaire's Betrayal is a feast for the senses. Of course there is a seduction going on, but there is also emotions that go beyond the sensual and border on the internal. Listen with your heart and the pieces simply fall into place.

Daylight Shooting Star
ひるなかの流星 1 [Hirunaka No Ryuusei 1] - Mika Yamamori

Review based on entire series.

Daytime Shooting Star is a very sweet, and addictive, love story which revolves around a teenage girl named Suzume Yosano. A natural beauty who is a bit of a tomboy, spontaneous, and somewhat clueless. Following big changes at home, she moves from the countryside into Tokyo with her uncle. Upon her arrival Suzume meets a stange young man who she initially tries to avoid, yet it turns out he is an acquaintance of her uncle’s. . . and her new homeroom teacher at school.

Shishio is a fun loving and very approachable guy. Always smiling and joking around. It’s easy to see why Suzume fell in love with him. That being said, however, when it came to his relationship with Suzume he came across as a very weak-willed and cowardly person. He failed to face his true feelings toward her, which ultimately broke her heart, even if it wasn’t his intention.

Mamura is a natural born tsundere; playing the mean guy when he was in fact a sweetheart. Despite his aversion to the opposite sex, he fell for Suzume instantly. He cherished Suzume, valued their friendship, and even sacrificed a lot to see her happy. 

Hence the Love Triangle developed. 

I really enjoyed this aspect of the story, as with everything else, it was beautifully written. Each relationship developed slowly. You could truly get a sense of all their emotions; the love, confusion, and frustration, the struggles and pressures each of them were experiencing throughout their journey. It was very realistic in terms of the growth of a natural relationship, and how they reacted to what was going on in their lives. Throughout all of this, Suzume still enjoyed the school-life of any other teenage girl. She made some amazing friends who were good to her, and supported and encouraged her time and time again. 

Overall, this was a beautiful story with beautiful art work and characterisation. There is so much to love about it. Definitely worth a read.

The Billionaire’s Secret
The Billionaire’s Secret - Mika Lane The Billionaire's Secret is meant to hook readers. The power serves as an aphrodisiac and seduces rather quickly. Varden is an alpha. He knows what he wants and will stop at nothing to draw it into his web. Saffi is a woman just discovering herself as a sexual being. She's a woman on the hunt and when you mix an alpha with a seductress, all bets are off. Mika Lane knows what it takes to entice readers and she has no qualms about appealing to the addict in us all.

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.
