Book Summary:

 

With three months remaining of her marriage of convenience, Savannah is ready to say goodbye to her spoiled rich boy of a husband. He's annoying and argumentative and used to always getting his way. Sure, he's hot. And maybe occasionally a little bit sweet. But she doesn't want to stay married to him. Not at all. He needed a wife for a year so he could inherit his grandmother's fortune, and she needed to pay off her family's debts. That's all their marriage has ever been about. So she really needs to stop falling into bed with him.

 

 

 

Enjoy a fragment:

“Mornin’,” Lance said from behind her. He came striding into the kitchen, looking obnoxiously handsome in a pair of tailored charcoal-gray trousers and a black crewneck sweater. He usually wore suits to work, but he must not have any appointments with clients that morning. They were leaving for the wedding midafternoon, and he probably didn’t want to have to change out of a suit.
“Something wrong with the juice?”
“Yes, there’s something wrong with it. You put it back in the refrigerator when it was empty.”
He was filling a travel mug with coffee, but he glanced over his shoulder to scan the bottle she still held.
“It’s not empty.”
“It might as well be.”
“Maria is coming today. She’ll restock the refrigerator.”
“But I was going to have a glass right now. Why would you put an empty container back in the refrigerator?”
“It’s not empty.” His eyebrows were lifted just slightly in a typical Lance look. Superior and slightly annoyed.  “There’s half a glass left in there. Why would I have wasted it?”
“This is one sip. Not half a glass.”
He let out an exasperated exhale and reached up to grab a small juice glass off a shelf. Then he stepped over so he was right in front of her, took the juice out of her hand, and poured the remainder into the glass. In the morning, right after he showered, was the only time of day when his hair was tamed into some sort of order. He always combed it back neatly while it was damp, like maybe he actually thought it would stay where he put it. He looked sleeker—harder, just slightly dangerous—without the thick auburn curls in wild disorder around his face.
He also smelled way too good. Clean and expensive and somehow better than men were supposed to smell. She breathed him in but didn’t let it distract her from her justifiable indignation. He handed her the glass with a pointed expression. It wasn’t half, but it was close. She swallowed the juice down in one gulp. It was a much bigger swallow than she normally would have taken, but she had an argument to win just now.
“One sip.” He met her eyes directly, and they held the gaze as an unspoken challenge. Then—damn him—the corner of his mouth twitched up, and he let out a huff so soft she barely heard it. But she knew what it was. Scowling, she set the juice glass in the sink and grabbed her coffee and granola bar.
“It’s not funny.”
“It’s kind of funny. Are we secretly a couple from a sitcom?” She was struggling not to laugh in response to the irrepressible amusement in his eyes, but that just made her more annoyed. Damn the man. Making her laugh just when she was about to win an argument. “I know you’re used to thinking only of yourself, but it would be nice if you’d acknowledge that I live here too and that putting mostly empty containers back into the refrigerator is rude and insensitive.”
“I must be growing on you. It wasn’t so long ago that you assumed I could never be anything except rude and insensitive.” He took his coffee and walked with her to the entryway of the condo. He was smiling for real now. Looking way too cocky. Like he’d somehow come out of this encounter the winner. He hadn’t.
She slid on the pair of black ankle boots she’d been wearing the day before and had left by the door. They pulled together her slim-cut black pants and gray sweater. She wanted to look decent since they’d be driving up to Virginia later for the wedding. Lance had been putting his shoes on too, but now he was scanning her out of the corner of his eye. “What?” she demanded.
“We match today.” His mouth quirked up again.
She looked down at herself. And then over at him. He was right. The colors were reversed, but they were both wearing the same shades of gray and black. Her belly fluttered with a flurry of butterflies. For no reason at all. She reached down for her leather bag on the floor and tried to think of something clever to say.
“It can only work to our benefit,” Lance continued. “People will really believe we’re growing into an old married couple.”
“Oh, shut up and stop smirking. And don’t think you’re forgiven about the orange juice.” As retorts went, that wasn’t one of her best, but it was all she could manage at the moment.

A Wedded Arrangement (Convenient Marriages, #3)A Wedded Arrangement by Noelle Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book #3 in the Convenient Marriages series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding of the series, I recommend reading these in order.

Savannah is breathing a sigh of relief. She is just months away from being married to a man she is madly attracted to but can barely stand. Growing up together, they had a history long before all of this came to be, and maybe it is time to let the past go.

Lance knows his time with his amazing wife is almost up. They got married so he could collect his inheritance. He definitely got the better end of the bargain, his wife is the literal light in his life.

This story was all romance should be. Totally emotional, yet with the heat turned up to the highest setting. Each page had me eagerly trying to will them to get together forever. The main characters were perfect for one another. Both their stories more serious than initially let on. I found it to be this authors best work to date.

The last thing I want is to partner on a library exhibit with Max, a hot new art professor at my college, but it's part of my job as librarian so I don't have a choice.

Single Dad by Noelle Adams  

Enjoy a fragment:

I’m pretending to work on email but mostly giving myself a pep talk when there’s a tap on my half-open door.
I turn around with a practiced smile, only to freeze when I see Max standing in my doorway, dressed in tan trousers and a black Oxford with that intimate smile on his face.
It’s unseemly for a man to look that sexy. A universal injustice.
“I’m three minutes early, but surely you aren’t surprised to see me,” he says.
“Come on in. Of course I’m not surprised.”
“Then why do you look like you’ve been socked in the gut?”
“I don’t look like that.”
“How do you know? You can’t see yourself.”
I roll my eyes, my annoyance at this teasing overcoming the rush of attraction that had paralyzed me. I stand up. “Let me show you the books.”
“Ah. I’m back to being treated with cold-as-ice professionalism.” His smile is even warmer than before, so it’s clear he isn’t remotely offended.
I roll my eyes again. “I’m not treating you cold as ice.”
“It feels kind of icy to me. And here I was being nice and bringing you lunch.” He raises a bag he’s been holding that I only half noticed before.
“You brought me lunch?”
“I brought us lunch, but if you don’t want me to eat with you, I can take mine with me.”
“Why did you bring lunch?” I’m filled with another rush of pleasure.
“Because I figured I was using up your lunch break, and I thought you might be hungry. I’m a nice guy that way. You just haven’t realized it yet.”
“I know you’re a nice guy.”
“Do you?”
“Yes. I do.” I’m afraid I might be gazing at him fatuously, and he’s going to be able to see it. So I clear my throat and give myself a mental shake. “Why wouldn’t I?”
“I don’t know. Like I said before, I’m still trying to figure you out. So do you want some lunch?”
“What did you get?”
“I didn’t know what you would want, so I got two kinds of salad, three kinds of sandwiches, and some pasta salad. I’ll eat whatever you don’t want.”
I gape at him. “You’ll eat two salads and two sandwiches?”
He laughs as he pulls containers and wrapped sandwiches out of the bag. “I could, but I probably won’t. You’ll have to eat half this stuff.”
“I can’t eat half of all this. You do see the size of me, don’t you?” I’m checking the labels and getting excited at every one I see. They’re just half sandwiches, so I pick the chicken salad on sourdough and the small Greek salad.
“Yes. I see the size of you.”
My breath hitches at his shift of tone. When I lift my eyes to meet his, I’m trapped by the heat of his gaze. His eyes are running up and down me, from my loose hair to my sandals. I’m wearing a long, soft skirt today in a pretty, feminine print. It’s not a sexy outfit, but I feel that way under his possessive gaze. My whole body starts to pulse.
When I realize what I’m feeling, I wrench my eyes away from his and focus down on my food again. I sit in my desk chair with an awkward flop.
He appears in better condition than me, but he doesn’t say anything else as he takes the turkey club and the pasta salad. He hands me a napkin and utensils, and we begin to eat.
“Thank you for this,” I say, after I’ve swallowed a bite of sandwich. It’s really good.
“You’re welcome. Thanks for your help with the exhibit.”
“No problem. The books are over there.”
“Great. We can look at them after we eat.”
His suggestion makes sense since we obviously don’t want to get food all over the books I’ve collected for him. But it extends our time together longer than I was hoping.
It would be so much easier and better for my state of mind if I could get him out of here in ten minutes.
No such luck.

Book Info:

 

Title: Office Mate Series: Milford College #2

Author: Noelle Adams

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

 

Summary:

 

The last thing I want is to share my beautiful office with an uptight, unfriendly new English professor. I don't care if he's incredibly hot. He's still the worst office mate in the world.

Office Mate is the second book in the Milford College series, novellas about the faculty and staff of a small liberal arts college  

 

 

  

 

Enjoy a fragment:

“Hey,” I say as I come in, dropping my keys onto my desk and turning to face him.

 

He looks up from his computer. His expression is unsmiling but not angry. “Hi.”

 

“I’m sorry about before. I’m not sure what got into me. I’m not usually so… irritable. I’m really sorry.”

 

His mouth turns up just a little. His eyes soften palpably. “Evidently I’m an irritating kind of person, so that probably explains it.”

 

“No, you’re not!” I lower my tone as I continue. “You’re really not that irritating. I should never have implied that about you. It’s just that I’m usually really good at getting to know people, and I’ve been frustrated that I can’t seem to get to know you.”

 

He frowns. “You don’t know me?”

 

“Of course not.” My eyes are wide in surprise. “You think I’ve gotten to know you?”

 

“I thought we were making progress.” He seems bothered by that piece of information, and he looks down at his desk as if he’s thinking. “I’m afraid I’m never going to be the life of the party, if that’s what you’re hoping for.”

 

“I know that. I mean, I don’t care about that. I like all kinds of people. I just feel like you’ve got so many walls up I can’t seem to get around them.”

 

“Maybe if you wouldn’t run away every time things start to get better between us.”

 

Shit. He has no idea. I have to run away occasionally, but it’s not because I don’t want to get to know him.

 

It’s because I want to tear his clothes off.

 

No way I can admit that to him.

 

I clear my throat and think fast. “I haven’t run away that much. You just confuse me.”

 

“What can I do to be less confusing?” Leave it to Evan to go about getting to know someone with the same sober determination he uses to tackle everything else.

 

“I don’t know. Don’t you ever just hang out and relax?”

 

“You want to hang out with me?”

 

Yes. Of course I do. In particular, I want to hang out in bed with him. “I just meant to get to know each other a little more. So we can get along better and be more comfortable sharing the office.” There. That didn’t sound too bad. That didn’t give away my irrational lust for him.

 

He nods. “I like to bike, but that’s obviously not your thing. I can go with you when you walk, if you’d like. Or…”

 

“Or what?”

 

“I was thinking about watching the Lord of the Rings movies since you like them so much.”

 

My heart clenches. Ridiculously. “You were?”

 

“Yes.”

 

“Maybe you can watch them with me. I would enjoy that.”

 

“You would?”

 

“Yes. Would… would you?”

 

“Of course I would.” His eyes never leave my face.

 

“What if you don’t like them?”

 

“I’m sure if you like them, then they can’t be that bad.”

 

We smile at each other, and I let out a long breath.

 

I still have way too many papers to grade today, but things are definitely looking up.

Steady
Carpool - Noelle Adams

Jennifer has basically grown up in the same small town as Marcus.  When her grandmother warns her to stay away from him - she takes it seriously.  She takes everything seriously.

 

Marcus is completely shocked when the woman of his dreams asks him for a favor.  As they get to know one another by carpooling to and from work, they are surprised to find common ground.  Now if he could just convince her to give him a shot......

 

Such an amazing and sexy book.  Felt like I was right there feeling the emotions of the characters.  Their journey may have been a long one, but with the right words it can be the best one.  I was very happy to root for these two to be together.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
