The Fix Up (First Impressions, #1) by Tawna Fenske Review
The Fix Up - Tawna Fenske

Uncovering this sexy geek’s charm is easy. Keeping her hands off of him is impossible.

While he may look like the love child of a movie starlet and an NFL linebacker, Ben Langley has the people skills of a half-drowned porcupine. Why socialize when there are chemistry labs and bad sci-fi flicks? If he has any hope of taking the helm as CEO of the family business, Ben needs an image makeover. Pronto.

 

Enter Holly Colvin, owner of First Impressions public relations and branding firm, and the woman who just saved Ben from the clutches of an over-attentive sales clerk. Holly’s rebranded hundreds of companies in her career, but she’s never rebranded a person. The guy clearly needs help, though, and she’s just the woman for the job.

 

With the clock ticking for them both, Holly and Ben face off over wardrobe malfunctions and business jargon that sounds a lot sexier than it should. But can Holly make Ben into the man he thinks he should be without losing the man she’s starting to love?

 

Review

 

l ove me a nerdy hero and Ben is grand.

The cute meet in this book is silly as is the fast dropping of pants but it manages to be a charming sexy read with some added depths as well.

Ben is great. He wants to change his company for the better and is a genius. He knows he needs to smooth his image but likes who he is and isn't afraid to be who he is. Plus, he is sexually confidant but not it a jerk way.

The heroine clings a bit to self protection and rules she doesn't obey in the magic of romance novel lust fog but I like her anyway. The turn around that caused her divorce is a bit contrived however, the issues she has that makes her take on Ben as a client is a real one and makes for a good conflict.

What I really loved about this book (beside nerdy dirty talk, sex, and flirting) is how much Ben respects the heroine and the direct address of sexism in corporate culture.

As usual with Fenske (who I like a lot as a writer for all the little details in her characters) the ending comes too soon and we don't get enough time to enjoy the couple but it is a very good book

I was given this book for my honest review. So there you have it!

Closet Case - K.M. Neuhold

Fortunately calibre can deal with .mobi (*grumble*amazon*grumble*)... but I for some reason I'm kind of fixated by the eyebrows on the cover, especially since everything else is so very very beige.

Don’t miss this sweet, sexy, hilarious M/M romance

Universal buy link: http://mybook.to/ClosetCase
 
 
 
 
Synopsis:
 
Jax
That awkward moment when you accidentally fool around with a closet case. I have a strict
policy against dating closeted guys. Confused straight guys? Absolutely. Guys who don’t mind
being out and proud? Duh. But closet cases are a hard pass. Been there, done that, have the t-
shirt with a giant picture of a broken heart on it. It would be a lot easier to stick to my dating rule
if Matthew Hart could be slightly less irresistible.
Matthew
Being a closeted gay college football player is not all it’s cracked up to be. After I broke my high
school boyfriend’s heart by refusing to come out of the closet, I swore off serious dating. I don’t
want to hurt anyone like that again, and I’ll admit I’m protecting my own heart in the process,
too. It was a lot easier to stick to my no dating rule before I laid eyes on Jax Greene. He’s
exactly my type in every possible way. If there’s even the slightest chance that history won’t
repeat itself, I want to see where things might lead. Convincing Jax to give me a chance though
might be the toughest play I’ve ever made.
 
 
 
**This book is the first M/M installment of the Sexy Nerd Boys series, but can be read as a

** My Review **
 
I’m pretty sure Sexy Nerd Boys is my guilty pleasure. I swear I gleefully fly through each one of these books in a day. Once I start I don’t stop until I am finished. Closet Case was no exception.
 
 
Matthew and Jax were so freaking cute and I really liked them together. I really loved Jax’s upbeat attitude and sense of humor, and I especially loved just how comfortable Jax was in his own skin. On the flip side of that, I appreciated seeing Matthew’s journey too. I couldn’t imagine the pressures and worries one might have in coming out. But I do think stories like this one that openly explores issues like this help us all get a better idea, which is a wonderful thing.
 
We also got to see little bits with the others couples we’ve come to love from past books, which is always cool…and that Epilogue…AMAZING!! I look forward to seeing what comes next!
 
I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Draw Play: A Sports Romance - Tia Lewis

Claire meets Jake as she becomes his tutor.  He has to keep his grades up to stay on the football team.  They clash right from the start.

 

Jake resents being told what to do like a child.  Then he finds himself attracted to the most unlikely girl yet.  Can he overcome his own fears for a future?

 

I loved this book because it was REAL.  I mean what the characters are thinking are things we have all thought.  The pace was well done.  I just hope the author continues and gives more on the secondary characters that seemed interesting.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Wasted Words by Staci Hart Review

 

Some universal truths refuse to be ignored.

Peanut butter and jelly are a match made in heaven. Spaghetti and meatballs are best friends forever. And guys like Tyler Knight don’t go for girls like Cam Emerson.

She knew from the second she met him that he didn’t belong on her bookshelf, the six-foot-six ex-tight end with a face so all-American, it could have sold apple pie. So she shelved him next to the supermodels and rock stars and took her place on her own shelf — the one with the flannel-clad, pasty-faced comic book nerds. Most of her boyfriends have existed between the pages of books, but rather than worrying over her own lacking love life, she puts all her energy into playing Cupid, using her job at the book bar, Wasted Words, as her stomping ground.

Tyler Knight always looks on the bright side. His career-ending injury turned into a job as a sports agent. A horrible breakup led him to Cam, his quirky, smart roommate who is far more beautiful than she realizes. She’s made it perfectly clear she’s not interested in him — not like that at least — but if she ever changes her mind, he won’t hesitate. Because he doesn’t see the lines she’s drawn between them, as much as she insists that they’re there. Deep down he knows that despite their differences, they’re a match well made.

Review

 

 

I loved the setting of this book in a bookstore/bar/comic shop. Heaven.

 

The literary reference were a great deal of fun as well. The hero was a sweetheart and while I adore roommate and opposites attracts themes this one did not work for me.

 

I am okay with the heroine being hurt by a past experience and I actually rather like that she was the jerk in this book and needed to check herself. But, it was a one trick pony in terms of character development. All of her development seems to stem from this one thing. We were told more about how great she was as well than seen it. I ended up not liking her because the issue lingered to long. I would have just liked to seen them in a relationship. I didn't see her grow as a character and get to spend anytime with the better her.

 

I because one million times more interested in the secondary romance which happened off stage.

 

This book also had a romance interferer which I don't love as a plot device and he was too flat a character as well.

 

I might pick up another book by this writer because there was something fun here.
