Sexy Stranger Review...



From New York Times Bestselling Author Kendall Ryan comes a sexy and sizzling, enemies-to-lovers romp with bite.





He's rude. Arrogant. And too hot to handle.


And she's stranded with him for an entire week.

He knows the sexy stranger doesn't belong in his small town, but he's determined to keep her there. The second she opens her smart mouth, he wants to swap a whole lot more than insults with her.

She’s got a secret. But he’s got his own agenda.

Buckle up.




"A steamy and red-hot enemies-to-lovers romance like I've never read before!" - Beneath the Covers Book Blog

"It was FREAKING FANTASTIC! Sexy, charming, and full of witty banter, I couldn't get enough of Luke and Charlotte!" - Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads



 REVIEW:

This book wasn’t what I was expecting at all.  I grabbed it because the cover and title caught my attention as well as the fact that I usually enjoy Kendall’s books.  I was not let down at all with this book.
 
The book follows a girl who gets stuck in Texas during her cross country trip moving to LA from New York.  She meets twin brothers Luke and Duke and falls for Luke.  They both say that it will just be a fling knowing she was leaving soon but can they let each other go in the long run or will they end up together.  Will she help the brothers market their whiskey distillery?  Will she end up leaving in the long run?  Will all the truth and secrets of their pasts come out?
 
I enjoyed the book.  I thought the plot was well formed and thought out.  I loved the characters and felt like I was there with them.  I love the authors writing style.  Where I ran into a few issues was the pace and the flow.  I felt like together these were a little bit choppy.  It wasn’t a major issue but I think there could have been more to the story that could have helped with the flow/pace a bit.  It ended too soon. 
 
However I can’t wait to see what happens next with these characters!  Does Duke end up with her best friend?
 
4.5 stars

Another Postcard Review...



Brooklyn Hawk is an enigma. Highly sought after for her incredible voice, her talent shines


bright in the studio. But a dark past and a secret she holds close to her heart keep her from permanently stepping into the limelight.

Until her favorite band offers her the chance to chase her dreams.

As the lead singer for rock sensation Stone Butterfly, Levi Matthews is wary of bringing in new talent. But he has heard just how amazing Brooklyn is and when the need for another singer arises, he’s confident that she is the perfect addition.

However, he doesn’t count on laying his heart at her feet.

But the world of music can be as dangerous as it is thrilling. Joining Stone Butterfly on tour was hard enough for Brooklyn, but when she finally succumbs to Levi’s charms, the rock ‘n’ roll life turns deadly.

Will Levi and Brooklyn keep their voices and their hearts entwined? Or will the music prove too hard to survive?

EXCERPT

Levi
Just inside the door, I put my hand on her arm to halt her exit.

“Dinner?”

“Nope.”

“Lunch tomorrow?”

Brooklynn sighed and turned to walk away, but there was a smile flirting around her mouth.

I grabbed her arm to stop her again, pulled her inside and shoved the door shut. Walking her backward, I crowded her up against a wall. Having caught her by surprise, she didn’t protest when I dove my fingers into her hair and angled her head. I didn’t give her any time for her mind to catch up, covering her mouth with my own. She gasped, and I took advantage of the moment, my tongue entering her mouth to lick and tangle with hers. I groaned at her taste, it was fucking incredible, and I knew I was instantly addicted. Her hands had been at her sides but they slowly crept up over my chest, to hold on to my shoulders as though they were the only thing holding her up.

I combed my fingers through her hair and then they traveled down to splay across her back, pressing her body forward and flush with mine. Fuck, she felt good. My erection was on the brink of exploding, so hard it was almost painful to breathe. I had to stop before I reached a point of no return. I knew I could seduce her right out of her clothes at that moment, but she’d never forgive me. No, we’d fuck when she wanted it with a clear mind. I backed off of the kiss and then slowly withdrew completely. She was dazed and mussed up, looking like she’d just been thoroughly kissed. It was a look I hoped to see on her more often.

I cupped her face and waited until the fog dissipated from her chocolate orbs. “How about I cook you breakfast?” I grinned roguishly and winked.

“Are you kidding me?” she scoffed at my cheesy line.
I just shrugged and grinned. It was worth a shot


REVIEW:

There was a lot that compelled me to grab this ARC for review and I was not let down.  First that cover was gorgeous.  Next, was the title…I kept thinking what could a postcard have to do with musicians.  Lastly, I went ahead and read the blurb (which I rarely do) and it caught my attention.
 
Now there was a lot going on in this book and I’m not going to lie I got confused a few times at the beginning because the pace was so fast and the plot seemed a bit wonky in the beginning.  However, things quickly got to a good pace and were easier to follow.  I fell in love with the characters and am glad to know that I will get to learn more about them.  I loved the twists and turns this book took because it kept me guessing the whole time.  The author wove an intricate tale and kept most of it straight.
 
I look forward to reading more about these characters soon.
 
4 stars



I’m a love of all things books, a hopeless romantic, and have always had a passion for writing. Between being a sappy romantic, my love of an HEA, my crazy imagination, and ok, let’s be real, my dirty mind, I fell easily into writing romance.

I’m a huge baseball fan and yet, a complete girly, girl. I’m an obsessive reader and have a slight (hahaha! Slight? Yeah, right) addiction to signed books.

I’m married to my very own book boyfriend, an alpha male with a sexy, sweet side. He is the best inspiration, my biggest supporter, and the love of my life. He is also incredibly patient and understanding about the fact that he has to fight the voices in my head for attention.

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them!

Title: Love in Transit

Genre:  Contemporary Romance

Release Day: June 1st

About Love In Transit:

You know those people that have a house full of motivational slogans? Embrace Every Moment, stamped on their coffee mugs. Always Kiss Me Goodnight painted above their perfectly made beds.

I’m not one of those people.

This morning I overslept, then slipped on a stray sock and banged my toe into the nightstand. The elevator in my building broke and I had to run down six flights of stairs. And then my local coffee shop was closed. For health code violations.

What’s that? Not the end of the world? You want me to suck it up?

Did I mention I’m wearing a wedding dress… on the subway?

It’s a Good Day for a Hot Mess. Someone embroider that on a pillow.

The Handy Men Review...


Today is the blog tour for The Handy Men by Jamie L. Schmidt! Grab your copy of this sexy romance and follow the tour today!

 

About The Handy Men:


Jack and Dean love each other, but they’re missing the woman to complete their triangle. When newly divorced Paige Richards buys a Bed and Breakfast on Hamlet Island and employs them to help her fix the inn up, Jack and Dean are sure they’ve found the one they’ve been looking for. Despite the playful, sexy clues they drop, luscious Paige is reticent about getting involved, even when they set the stage so she can stumble on them in action. They can tell by her responses she wants to join them, but rumors travel fast on the small island, and tales of a threesome could get back to the conservative, family vacation crowd who won’t patronize those with an alternative lifestyle. And the last thing they want for Paige is the B&B’s rooms…and her bank account…to remain empty. But Jack and Dean will stop at nothing to prove to Paige that she can have it all…with them.

REVIEW:


While this is not my first MMF book it is among the top favorites.  I was introduced to this genre with Left to Chance by Lila Rose and it still remains my favorite (having read it three times at least since it was released) but this book has taken up the second place mantle.  A lot of the MMF books that I have read don’t really have a plot, focusing solely on the sex, but this book is one of the rare few I have read that is an actual plot filled book.
 
It was a great story and I sunk right into it.  I felt like I was a part of the book.  Now it had its issues for me but besides that it was a great book.  I felt that things got a little muddled during parts of the book and that slowed the flow a little bit.  It was extremely enticing and fun to read though.  I loved the characters.  The authors writing style was amazing as well.
 
I have to say that I hope there is a sequel to this book because I want to know more about Paige, Jack, and Dean.  Do they end up with a family of their own, kids and everything?  What happens with Dean and Stephanie’s kid?    Do Paige’s parents accept her relationship?  So many questions and no answers but there was a HEA and that’s all I can ask for.
 
4.5 stars
