Review: Some Sort of Love by Melanie Harlow


Author: Melanie Harlow

Book: Some Sort of Love



tl;dr recommendation: For those that love single dads, sex, beards, sex, and lots of sweetness (and sex), get all of your hands on Some Kind of Love! 5 stars.

Book Summary:

From the outside looking in, I had it all—a career I loved, a supportive family, the Nixon metabolism but not the Nixon ears, and a salary that supported my lavish taste in designer shoes, fine wine, and lacy lingerie … but I had no one to share it with.

Until the day I ran into him—my one night stand from college with the crooked smile, let’s-get-out-of-here eyes, and dirty, dirty mouth.

Cute and cocky then, today Levi Brooks is six feet four inches of hot bearded fantasy. A sexy single dad with broad shoulders, strong hands, and a fantastically big … heart. (I mean, it’s massive. And generous. And it pumps so hard … um. Sorry. Lost my place.)

Being a good father means everything to him, but he’s keeping me at a distance because he thinks I deserve someone better — a man who can give me more time, more attention, more of himself. He doesn’t believe he could ever be enough.

But he’s wrong.

He’s everything.


Longer Review:

Ahhhh, I melted over this book. There’s something about the deepness of Levi’s plight that had me head over heels after he had barely spoken a word. Their love story is unexpected and untraditional. Levi’s a single dad to a special needs child. That kid is his everything. He’s struggling. He can’t handle more than the structure that he has created. He uses that structure as a crutch to push away anything and everything that could potential rupture it.

But he wants Jillian. He wants her more than he thought was possible. But he also wants to mold his time with her into this side pocket of his life – unobstructed from the real world; untainted by his messy dad life. His excuses get to be tiresome. Jillian agrees with me there. But that’s the point. Levi is terrified of messing with his life because even though he’s unhappy being alone – even though he’s dying to be with Jillian – he can’t handle the thought of living his life any other way.

Because change is scary. Loving someone so completely and letting them infiltrate into your life in a true and real way is terrifying. Harlow give us a glimpse of just how hard that is in Some Sort of Love. She lets us feel Jillian’s heartbreak over being the weekend girl, even though you can literally feel the love that each character has for the other.

I loved this book – probably more than her others. This book is real and true to the problems that come along with falling in love. While it’s all fairly funny and teasingly hot, it also placed an ache right into your heart that you have to work with the characters to ease.

I absolutely fangirled over Levi in a completely unsexy way while reading this one and this book turned me into all kinds of a hot mess. For those that love single dads, sex, beards, sex, and lots of sweetness (and sex), get all of your hands on Some Sort of Love! 5 stars.

Review: Hawke by Sawyer Bennett


Author: Sawyer Bennett

Book: Hawke

tl;dr recommendation: a Cold Fury hurricane of emotions, hockey, and buried secrets. 5 stars!

Book Summary:

The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team proves that love is a power play. As Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling series continues, the league’s most notorious party animal gets blindsided by the one that got away.

Off the ice, elite defenseman Hawke Therrien enjoys his fair share of booze and good times. And why shouldn’t he? He’s worked his way up from the minor leagues and made himself a star. The only thing Hawke misses from that life is the pierced, tattooed free spirit who broke his heart without so much as an explanation. She’s almost unrecognizable when she walks back into his life seven years later—except for the look in her eyes that feels like a punch to the gut.

Vale Campbell isn’t the same girl she was at twenty. As crazy as she was about Hawke, her reckless behavior and out-of-control drinking were starting to scare her. She had to clean up her act, and that would never happen with Hawke around. Cutting him loose was the hardest thing Vale ever had to do—until now. Because she’s still crazy about Hawke. And if he could ever learn to forgive her, they just might have a future together.

Longer Review:

HAWKE is a Cold Fury hurricane of emotions, hockey, and buried secrets. When Vale returns back into Hawke’s life it’s like she set fire to his veins, melting the ice that surrounded Hawke’s heart the moment she left, and igniting the spark of anger he’s felt for all these years. The history they shared is not for the weak of heart. OBVIOUSLY I’m not going to tell you what the secrets are because uhhh that’s the book. Duh.

But know this – Hawke and Vale twist so perfectly together. Seeing each other again was shocking but comforting but neither of them were entirely ready for the memories that assaulted their every sense. Hawke’s been at a loss for years trying to figure out why the one woman he ever loved left him; while Vale has been harboring her own resentment for all that she went through without him. Neither of them were right. Neither of them were wrong. Things just happen. They just ARE. They just can’t be changed.

But they can move forward. Bennett styles this book in her quintessential way, full of sex and sexy banter -but she also injects her words with feelings and her characters with life. Hawke’s bitterness is often on full display and they toss barbs at each other like grenades in an effort to soften their own blowback. There’s angst and angry sex, sweetness and tender sex, a full display of alpha male tendencies, and a stubborn woman who refuses to rely on a man to get by. It’s GREAT.

This is more than just a hockey book – it’s heartbreaking and honest and makes you FEEL. Hawke and Vale have to put in a little overtime to get their HEA but it’s so worth it – 5 stars!

Review: Rugged by Lila Monroe


Author: Lila Monroe

Book: Rugged (buy link available on 2/10/16!)

tl;dr recommendation: Ruggedly sexy? Ruggedly sweet? Ruggedly hot? Ruggedly AMAZING.

Book Summary:

Laurel Young needs a plan, and fast. After her reality TV boss has a major meltdown, not-so-funemployment seems inevitable–unless she can pitch the idea of a lifetime. When she sees Flint McKay’s audition tape – flanneled, handsome as hell, and building a house with his own two hands – she knows she’s found her secret weapon. The women of America are going to love him, especially if she can convince him to try building without the flannel shirt.

Only problem is, Flint didn’t make that tape – and he has zero interest in trading the wilds of Western Massachussetts for the bright lights of Hollywood. But Laurel isn’t the kind of girl to take no for an answer. Soon, she’s knee-deep in rustic charm, and getting plenty of hands-on experience. And it turns out, this city girl and country guy may have a few things in common after all, like crazy hot chemistry, a wild side, and a weakness for good whiskey…

But can their behind-the-scenes connection last once the world falls in love with Flint? And will this be the big break both of them need- or leave them in the dirt?

Find out in Lila Monroe’s fun, sexy new novel!

*This is a stand-alone novel with HEA. No cliff-hangers!*

Longer Review:

Ruggedly sexy? Ruggedly sweet? Ruggedly hot? Ruggedly AMAZING. Lila Monroe whisks us off into a real world drama wrapped in a reality show tucked between the fast paced world of LA and the rustic trees of Massachusetts. I didn’t want to be let up for air….sort of how Laurel felt when she was assaulted with one of Flint’s kisses.

Flint is the man’s man – tool belt included. while he really only needs one tool to get the job done *winks* he’s pretty handy with all of the others at his disposal. He’s also sweet, kind and swoonworthy. My heart let and burst the same way as Laurel’s everytime his smile lit up a room.

The two of them are a match waiting to be struck. The tension is present from the first meeting and doesn’t let up, even after they give in to their….uhhhhh…baser needs. The secondary characters are equally developed and I felt like I was actually a part of the crazy McKay family.

Despite the fact that this love story could have fallen to the editing room floor with miscommunication conundrums, Monroe doesn’t leave you in the lurch. Full of angst, sexual tension and mountains of sex, Rugged handsomely keeps you entertained and glued to your kindle. Fire this one up, because Flint’s about to enter your heart and steam up your kindle! LOVE!

Review: Dark Wild Night by Christina Lauren


Author: Christina Lauren

Book: Dark Wild Night

tl;dr recommendation: holy contemporary romance!

Book Summary:

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
But what didn’t happen in Vegas seems to follow them everywhere.

Lola and Oliver like to congratulate themselves on having the good sense to not consummate their drunken Las Vegas wedding. If they’d doubled-down on that mistake, their Just Friends situation might not be half as great as it is now.

… Or so goes the official line.

In reality, Lola’s wanted Oliver since day one—and over time has only fallen harder for his sexy Aussie accent and easygoing ability to take her as she comes. More at home in her studio than in baring herself to people, Lola’s instinctive comfort around Oliver nearly seems too good to be true. So why ruin a good thing?

Even as geek girls fawn over him, Oliver can’t get his mind off what he didn’t do with Lola when he had the chance. He knows what he wants with her now … and it’s far outside the friend zone. When Lola’s graphic novel starts getting national acclaim—and is then fast-tracked for a major motion picture—Oliver steps up to be there for her whenever she needs him. After all, she’s not the kind of girl who likes all that attention, but maybe she’s the kind who’ll eventually like him.

Sometimes seeing what’s right in front of us takes a great leap of faith. And sometimes a dark wild night in Vegas isn’t just the end of a day, but the beginning of a bright new life…

Longer Review:

Loliver are quirky and odd and sweetly romantic together. This story is written well and explosively hot – when they finally give in to their intentions. I mean, holy contemporary romance!

Oliver is my favorite. Really. He’s so upfront and honest and adorably geeky in this relationship. His openness and willingness to give their relationship a real try is just….everything. Lola, on the other hand, is going to be the one that makes you want to scream. She’s odd in a really ODD way. I mean, there were parts of her that I liked: the creative side, her fear of screwing up her relationship with Oliver, her overwhelming need to work.

But then there were parts of her that just didn’t connect for me. She is clearly an intelligent human being. She gets Oliver. She loves him. But her social awkwardness is heightened to a level past introvert and that really threw me for a loop. I didn’t see how she could possibly make some of the decisions that she did when her actions told an entirely different story.

Lola confused me, but Oliver drew me in – he was full of bright colors and bams! and pops! and all of those comic book thangs that I should probably be punning. They easily made sense together when they were together and their friends to lovers relationship really IS a sweet and different kind of story that made me smile.

As an aside, I don’t understand this title in relation to the actual book itself. Am I missing a comic reference? Or is this in reference to Vegas? IDK. I’m usually really good at this but that title doesn’t fit with the book for me.

Regardless, while Dark Wild Night isn’t my all time favorite Christina Lauren book, it’s certainly not a bad one. Loliver are nerdily sweet and pretty damn hot. 4 stars!

Distraction: The great intensity, novelty, or attractiveness of something other than the object of attention.

Sven is a man who takes pride in his ability to separate himself from his emotions. He’s a man who knows who he is and where he’s going in life, a man who needs no one, because needing someone, anyone, is a weakness.

His past taught him love isn’t enough.  

Maggie wants the happily ever after, but has never picked the right men, or stuck around long enough, to build a forever. It’s always been easier to get out early, before emotions make things messy.

When Maggie wakes up naked in Sven’s bed, with no memory of the night before, these two must be honest about their feelings and face their fears, so they can build a future together.

Will love be enough for them to get their happy ending together, or will a threat from outside strike them down before they ever have a chance?




Are you prepared to be distracted? Aurora kicks the third book in the Underground Kings series into high gear. Full of instant attraction and surprising danger, she creates a world with Maggie and Sven that will fill the reader with emotion and have you cheering that they defeat everything that threatens their world.

I really fucking loved Maggie. She’s absolutely solid in her convictions. She loves her sister – so she helps her. She doesn’t want to flaunt her body – so she dresses modestly. She doesn’t like cursing – so she makes up her own. However, she’s not naive. She’s just strong and determined not to fall under Sven’s spell.

Sven’s the kind of manwhore that I love to love. We meet him as he has his dick in some girl at his club and we learn very quickly that he’s not discerning over his partners – as long as they’re hot and willing. Until he meets Maggie. Her fire and spark ignite his #BOOM and he’s done.

I think Aurora’s books are so incredibly popular because she gives the reader emotion and love and doesn’t leave you hanging with one shoe for hundreds of pages. This book reunites you with the others from the Underground Kings series and I loved their interactions with one another. The story packs a punch and is told in a fun, enjoyable and entertaining way.

I fell in love with Sven & Maggie, their backstories and their families. Love ARR! 5 stars.

Interracial couple being intimate in front of window


“Fuck no,” I snap, loosening my tie. The last assistant I had ended up being a clusterfuck. The woman was pissed that I wouldn’t fuck her. I finally had to fire her ass when she brought another woman up to my office and proceeded to try and get me to join them on my couch when I walked in on them half naked. Work is work. Yes, I might invite women up to fuck, but never anyone I work with.

“It’s not like she’s your type,” he says, and I feel my jaw tick. “Besides, if she’s up here with you, she’ll stop harassing the women down there.” He nods toward where she’s sitting and my eyes follow the movement, seeing her talking to a girl who looks a little startled by whatever it is Maggie is telling her.

“It’s not happening. You guys need to keep her out of the club,” I tell him, turning away from the window.

“Just saying it would be a good way to keep an eye on her,” he gripes, patting my shoulder before leaving my office and closing the door behind him.

Letting out a frustrated breath, I turn away from the window and try to focus on all the shit I need to get done.

“Yeah,” I pick up my desk phone when it beeps and looking at the clock, seeing that an hour has passed since Teo left.

“Look out your window,” Zack says, and I spin my chair around and scan the floor, wondering what he wants me to see. Then I spot Maggie with a man’s head tucked under her arm as she leads him toward the front of the club, with Lane and Zack following closely behind them.

“What the fuck is going on?”

“That guy tried to put something in some chick’s drink, and Maggie saw him and went postal on his ass,” he explains almost proudly.

“Jesus Christ, what the fuck do I pay you for?” I gripe.

“I saw the whole thing. I was getting ready to step in when she stood up on her barstool, jumped on the guy’s back, and then did some fucking ninja shit, wrapping her arm around the guy’s head and forcing him to his knees. She won’t let him go. She said she wants to ask him some questions.”

“I’m on my way down,” I say, slamming down the phone and jerking open the door to my office, taking the stairs two at a time. Reaching the front of the club, I see Zack holding the guy and Lane’s arms wrapped around Maggie’s waist, trying to drag her away. What the fuck is going on?” I roar, and all eyes come to me except Maggie’s, who takes the opportunity to grab the man’s ear and twist, making him drop hard to the ground on his knees.

“You think it’s funny to drug innocent women, you flaming turd bucket?” she yells, hitting the top of the guy’s bald head, and Zack chuckles along with Lane, but I don’t see one damn thing that’s funny about this shit.

“Maggie, let him go and come here,” I growl, and she raises her eyes to meet mine, looking startled.


“I said get your ass over here now!” I yell, cutting her off and feeling the vein in my neck bulge as I point to the ground at my feet.

“Fine.” She pouts, letting the guy go, walking sullenly toward me as Zack pulls the man to his feet, taking him with him around the corner, with Lane following behind them with his phone to his ear. I’m sure they are going to have a talk and wait for the cops.

“Let’s go,” I say, wrapping my hand around the back of her neck, leading her through the club and up the stairs to my office. Sitting her in the chair in front of my desk, I walk over to the cabinets where I keep my personal bottle of scotch and pull out the cap. I then lift the bottle to my lips, taking a swig while trying to calm down.

“Alcohol isn’t good for you,” she informs me as I take a seat behind my desk.

“Do I look like I give a fuck about that?” I ask her, taking another swig.

“You might not care about what it can do to your body right now, but you may want to know that it lowers sperm count and stamina in the long run.”

“Jesus.” I shake my head and rub my eyes in aggravation.  

“Just saying it’s not good for you,” she mutters, dropping her eyes to her lap.

“What happened downstairs isn’t okay, Mags.”

“Maggie,” she corrects, still not looking at me.

“Whatever,” I drone, taking another swig. “You could have gotten hurt.”

“I have a black belt—”

“Look at me,” I demand, cutting her off and slamming the bottle down on the top of the desk, waiting for her eyes to meet mine. “You could have gotten hurt or worse. Do you understand that? He could have had a weapon on him.”

“You don’t understand,” she whispers as tears fill her eyes, but I harden myself against them, needing her to understand this isn’t a fucking movie. This is real life, and there are bad—really fucking bad—people in this world.

“You’re not allowed on the club floor anymore,” I state firmly.

“I’m going to find the guys who hurt my sister,” she states, and I see the determination in her eyes that make me proud and pissed at the same time.

“If you come, you come to my office, and if something happens down there”—I point to the club floor over my shoulder—“you’ll be the first to know.”

“Why would I come to your office? I need to be at the bar where I can see what’s going on.”

“You just got the job as my new assistant,” I tell her, watching her frown while wondering what the fuck I’m doing. This chick is a distraction I do not need right now, or ever for that matter.

“I already have a job,” she says as her frown grows deeper.

“Well, quit. You’re here every night, Mags, and you don’t leave ‘til the club closes at one. I can tell by the bags under your eyes that you’re exhausted.”

“Why would you want me to work here?” Now, isn’t that the million dollar question?

“Either take me up on my offer, or I’m going to have a restraining order placed against you and you won’t be allowed within a few hundred feet of the club.”  I shrug like it’s all the same to me.

“You know this is malarkey, right?” she stands and I take her in fully for the first time tonight. Her loose, sheer, black dress is cinched with a thin belt emphasizing the dip in her waist between her full hips and breasts. Her hair is down in a mass of messy waves, and her makeup is subtle but still draws attention to her eyes, which look even more golden now that she’s standing in front of me looking pissed off.

“I’m not messing around with you anymore either. You take me up on my deal, or I’ll call the police and have them escort you off the premises,” I tell her, ignoring the fact I’m getting hard just looking at her.

“This is total crap,” she mumbles, looking around before meeting my eyes again.

“Take it or leave it.”

“Jeez, can I have a second to think?” she cries, and I feel my lips twitch, so I rub my hand down over my mouth to hide it.

“Ten,” I state, watching her eyes narrow. “Nine…eight…seven…” I continue counting, watching as she looks at me like she’s ready to kill me. “Six,” I raise a brow. “Five…”

“Fine!” she yells when I open my mouth to finish my countdown.

“Thought so,” I say triumphantly.

“You’re such a…you’re such a bigasterd,” she growls.

“A what?” I ask, and I can’t help it, I laugh at that one.

“When do I start?” she asks, ignoring my question while red spreads across her cheeks and down her neck.

“Tomorrow. Be here at five, and I’ll show you around the club and tell you your responsibilities.”

Title: Play Me
Author: Katie McCoy
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Recipe For:A Roll In The Hay Hot Crossed Buns Love


1 Chef (equal parts sexy and carefree)

1 Pianist (equal parts uptight and endearing)

1/8 inch of drywall between their apartments

2 opinions on everythingCombine all ingredients, mix vigorously, and be prepared for an explosion of heat.

Pianist Ella Thomas is training for the competition of her life. Finally in an apartment of her own, she can practice from dawn till dusk.

But she didn’t bet on the sexy and frustrating neighbor keeping her up all night – even if he does cook like a maestro and kiss like it’s his job.

Jake Matson is living his dream as Head Chef at one of the most popular restaurants in San Francisco. He’s easy going, flirtatious and not looking for love. He didn’t expect to be completely distracted by the girl next door, whose buttoned-up appearance hides the seductive firecracker underneath.

What happens when opposites attract? As their tension fires up, can they create a new kind of music together or will everything boil over?

Purchase Links


Sweet and playful, McCoy plays your heart against your stomach in her second novel. What happens when the head chef of the top restaurant who is struggling to be better than his predecessor meets a driven pianist who is trying desperately to come into herself and win a huge competition – I’ll tell you: lots of heat, lots of noise, and little bit of miscommunication.

Jake’s just taken over as the head chef – he’s under a shit ton of pressure, causing him to work long – late – hours and ignore any desire he has to pursue a relationship. Ella’s just left a relationship with her piano teacher. That due is a self-absorbed asshole who doesn’t deserve to get laid, but hey, my opinion and all that. Thankfully, she realizes that too. I connected with both characters and really liked their interaction.

This isn’t a heavy book by any stretch of the imagination. This is pure fun entertainment and the characters will easily whisk you away into their world. This book is fun but heavy on the puns and a bit full of cheese at the end – sort of like a mozzarella stick – but it was equally delicious.

The desire, banter and easy writing are all present, leaving you incredibly satisfied. 4 stars!

Review: River James by MJ Fields


Author: MJ Fields

Book: River James

tl;dr recommendation: a rough and fierce look at believable characters who are beautifully flawed. 5 stars!

Book Summary:

When he fell in love, he fell hard. When he lost her, he lost his will.

Drugs, sex, and rock and roll—in that order—became his life.

River James, the drummer for Steel Total Destruction, loved the brotherhood he formed with his unlikely best friend and his band mates, and the family he found in his label until one tragic accident takes it all away in the blink of an eye. Twisted metal, shattered bones, crushed dreams, and torn wreckage causes deep, dark secrets to be revealed and he quickly turns to the sure things in life: drugs and women. Will he find himself in the wreckage or will he lose his way in the smoke and debris?

The first person in her family to graduate from high school and college, Keanna Sutton is flying high on her accomplishments. She has the career and man of her dreams…or so she thought. While recovering from a break-up she has a chance run-in with a tall, handsome, silver-tongued drummer who tests her strength and ability to hold her own tongue. She desperately tries to ignore the implausible attraction to River – a man she knows will be no good for her. When she finally throws caution to the wind, she finds herself getting rocked the only way a badass like River can: hard and nasty. Will the hottest night of her life end there? Or will she lose herself in a man whose only promise is that a lady always comes first?

Longer Review:

Holy shit. Gritty, raw and chokingly real, Fields delivers an emotional and angst ridden novel that drums right into your heart and soul. River is flawed. Hurt. Tormented. He’s an addict but, as most addicts do, he doesn’t truly recognize the level of his problem. There’s a reason for his addiction – for his desire to escape the world surrounding him – for wanting to check out of reality and bask in the bliss of the drug. He’s fighting so hard to forget the past that he almost misses out on his future.

Keanna is one strong as fuck woman. She works at an addiction center, but ironically that’s not where she meets River. There’s something that pulls them to each other, like magnets of lust; but then there’s something more than keeps them near one another even while River is self destructing in her face. However, don’t be concerned. Keanna doesn’t let River walk all over her and especially doesn’t let his addiction be ignored.

There’s so much EMOTION in this book. It deals with real issues and real people and their real reactions to them. This is why MJ is so popular and why her books will continue to sell phenomenally well – she manages to hook the reader in with the purity of the story, giving them the closest look into the truths of the darkest moments in her characters’ lives.

This was my first Fields novel, but it won’t be my last – this book isn’t glossy or fluffy but rather a rough and fierce look at believable characters who are beautifully flawed. 5 stars!

Blog Tour & Review: Buy Me 3 by Alexa Riley


Author: Alexa Riley

Book: Buy Me 3

tl;dr recommendation: It’s just like shifter novels without the shifting…and I sort of loved it.

Book Summary:

Antonio “Don” Cortez has been running Vegas for most of his life. After taking over the city, he’s left with a lonely life, living through his family and thinking there’s nothing more.

Peaches is looking to take Vegas for as much as she can before she skips town. She’s counting cards and raking in the money until she catches the eye of the owner of the Golden Peacock casino.

What happens when something ignites inside Don that he’s never felt before? What happens when this sassy southern belle finally meets her match?

A virginity auction…obviously!

Warning: Don is immediately lost to Peaches, and insta-love is ablaze. This story includes their over-the-top HEA and a bonus story at the end…the Madame of the Auction finally gets her turn. It’s a ridiculous ride, so grip those Kindles tight!

Longer Review:

If you know Alexa Riley then you know what to expect and this novella is everything you want it to be: Insta INSTA love and a massive desire for impregnation and somewhat stalkery behavior. It’s just like shifter novels without the shifting…and I sort of loved it.

Alexa Riley’s books are the smuttiest of smut that don’t worry about pretenses and believability. Bravo, ladies! This novella excels at making you smile and entertaining the fuck out of you. There isn’t any deep emotional angst or waiting for the other shoe to drop – there IS lots of cumming, claiming, and crotch licking. I’d say it’s a success.

Don and Peaches are dirty, sweet (i swear I’m not punning) and actually likeable. He’s one silver fox I’d like to catch. Peaches (thank fuck that’s not her real name) is the kind of woman every man wants to tame – but only one man has the skill to do so.

Buy Me is exactly what you should do for this novella – especially if you’re in the mood for lots of sex (one virgin scene included!), all the smut and a fun goddamn story.

Lily LeBlanc isn’t versed in the art of casual sex, but after seven years in an on-again, off-again relationship, she’s definitely willing to give it a shot. And who better to try it with than her best friend’s boyfriend’s best friend? What could possibly go wrong?

NHL player, Randy Ballistic, lives up to his last name on the ice and in the bedroom. His best friend and teammate has recently given up the puck bunnies and traded them in for a real girlfriend. And she just happens to have a seriously feisty, extra-hot best friend on the rebound. Randy’s more than happy to be Lily’s spring board back into the dating scene.

But casual sex is only casual until those pesky things called emotions get involved. Once that happens, someone’s bound to get pucked over.



Funny, romantic, charming and downright hilarious, Pucked Over had me dying to get near Balls…Randy Ballistic that is. This entire series is admittedly over the top – Helena purposefully jokes around, puns incredibly hard, and writes in a way that will make you smile. Since I love a good pun, this is exactly up my alley.

What surprised me here is that this book had a little bit more depth than the first two. Randy actually had some issues that he was working through and he shows more vulnerability than I had expected. Let’s meet Randy, shall we? He’s the puck bunny prince – I say this only because I’m pretty sure Lance is (was?!) the King. The man can pull tail and he certainly doesn’t hide it. The bunnies even have social media groups for his rejects. Ouch.

But he’s rejecting them because he’s not looking for anything serious – the second that happens he’s out. Until Lily. He knows she’s not a bunny but he can’t keep himself from wanting her in an animalistic way. Randy’s transformation isn’t overnight but his little moments of endearment were surprisingly tender.

But don’t let that sweet stuff fool you too much, he and Lily also like to fuck in bathrooms. A lot. So get ready for that. It’s a thing. And it’s funny. Their sexual prowess together is pretty impressive. Like standing-ovation-I’m-pretty-sure-my-vagina-would-fall-off impressive.

Now, while I love Violet (I do) I felt that there was a little bit too much emphasis on her in this book. I don’t know why, I mean, I know she’s funny as fuck, but she’s also literally insane in many ways and I was a little confused as to why she was the main focus in scenes. I really really liked Lily a lot. I wished her character had a teensy bit more of a substantive development in the same way that Randy did, but she also didn’t have as far to come *cough* so I digress.

This book is full of lots of puns & pucking – and you’re going to love it! Get ready to go ballistic! 4.5 stars!

With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course she isn’t interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. When Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match.

Suffering from a complete lapse in judgment, Violet discovers just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. Violet believes her night of orgasmic magic with Alex is just that: one night. But Alex starts to call. And text. And email and send extravagant—and quirky—gifts. Suddenly, he’s too difficult to ignore, and nearly impossible not to like.

The problem is, the media portrays Alex as a total player, and Violet doesn’t want to be part of the game

Miller “Buck” Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed up front teeth. After five years in the NHL, deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies, Miller has decided he’s ready for a girlfriend. A real, non-bunny girlfriend to take on dates, and not jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation.

Miller thinks he’s found that woman in his teammate’s sister. Except, unlike team captain and all-around nice guy Alex Waters—who happens to date his stepsister, Miller’s media reputation as a manwhore is well earned. Beyond that minor detail, Miller doesn’t know the first thing about relationships or the time and effort they require.

Miller learns—eventually—that if he wants to make Sunshine “Sunny” Waters fall for him, he’s going to have to do a whole lot more than show her his stick skills in the bedroom.

Blog Tour & Review: Dirty Together by Meghan March

Dirty Together by Meghan March

Book Three of The Dirty Billionaire Trilogy

Date of Publication: January 12, 2016


Dirty Pleasures

My wife.

I love saying those words.

She’s mine, and if she thinks I’m going to let her run without tracking her down and bringing her back to where she belongs–with me–then she’s about to be introduced to a new reality.

Because I’ll fight dirty to give her the happily ever after she deserves.

 Creighton Karas is by far my favorite book HUSBAND I’ve read in awhile. Meghan has just topped herself and I didn’t think that was possible. Between the swooning and the wild gasps I’m surprised I was able to function after this was over. Crey soars to my favorites list with his undying love and determination to show it to Holly while Holly made me proud with her backbone of steel.
If you recall, in the last book Holly leaves Crey AGAIN with the shortest Dear John note on the planet. She’s a woman of words, but when it comes to her husband she always seems to lack them. She’s sort of in a desperate place – she feels off kilter so she goes back to her roots. OF COURSE, my beloved (iknowhe’smarriedLAYOFFME) Crey follows after her.
There’s so much that I love about this book. There are twists that I totally didn’t see coming and that set up the next book (or series?!) gloriously. Meghan’s writing is funny and unexpected – she leads you down a path and then throws you in a completely different direction. She so easily could have done the usual romance book plot in this series, but she doesn’t. Dirty Together is refreshingly honest and seriously erotic.
I am gushing so hard right now (Holly does lots of that too) and it’s all because of the crazy sex (shit. holy shit. i mean, HOLY FUCKING SHIT. its so hot) combined with the absolute passion these characters show for each other. The Dirty Billionaire Trilogy gets all the motherfucking stars!

I’ve got a big dick and an even bigger bank account. That’s pretty much where my bio ends.

Honestly, I don’t need to say anything else. I’ve just sold 99% of women on going home with me.

Do I sound like an asshole to you?

That’s because I am.

And guess what? It works for me just fine.

Or at least it did.

Until I met her.

Books talk about sparks flying. Fuck that shit. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm.

Only one problem.

She wouldn’t tell me her name or her number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest fucking night of my life.

Now I’ve had a taste of unicorn pussy–the sweetest, rarest of all pussy–and I need it again.

So what’s an asshole to do?

I took this problem to the street. A missed connection gone viral.

And when I find her? I’m keeping her.

I did it. I married a billionaire.

My reasons are my own, but the last thing I expected was to feel owned.

I may have taken vows, but I’m still determined to be me.

Now his rules are taking over my world, but I’m not the kind of girl to just obey.

There’s only one problem: I might actually be falling for him…

I have no idea how this marriage is going to go, but holding onto a piece of myself while succumbing to his dirty pleasures is shaping up to be the ride of a lifetime.
