Excerpt

Zia…
Liar.

 

Conman.


Duplicitous fuck.

 

 
As I leaned against the wall of the makeshift medical room we’d set up in the
penthouse, I thought about the two versions of the man I had started to fall
for.
 
Two versions of one of the richest men in the world. One of them was a
billionaire, Derrick Arlington. And the other was someone I didn’t know.
 
And currently, one of them was bleeding all over what looked like a massage
table.
 
I’d fallen in love with a mirage. None of what I’d felt had been real.
 
As the doctor Royal Elite had on call worked to patch up Derrick, I watched
them both. The resemblance was beyond uncanny. They were freaking identical.

 

No. You can tell them apart.



Right now, I could. But without the scruff and long hair, would I be able to?

 
I forced myself to take a closer look. To focus on what was different, what
stood out.
 
For starters, Theo, or whoever the hell he was, had broken his nose. There was
a slight bump in the ridge. It was barely noticeable, but it distinguished
them. That and the eyes, that stormy gray, surrounded by thick lashes. They
were the same shape and color, but Arlington’s were a little closer together.
Or maybe a little wider. It was hard to tell now as he had a cut above one and
it was nearly swollen shut.
 
Heightwise, they looked about the same, but I couldn’t be sure. They weighed
about the same. And I only knew that because I’d helped drag Arlington off the
beach with Theo, who had mumbled some bullshit about me not finding out that
way. And sorry, sorry blah blah blah. If I was being honest, the shock had
rendered me deaf and dumb right then.
 
But once the crisis was over, my voice was back, and I had a shit ton to say.
Starting with Liar. Conman. Duplicitous fuck.
 
It didn’t matter what form of explanation came out of his mouth. As far as I
was concerned, he was full of shit.

📝My Review📝:  5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I really enjoy reading books from this author! Her characters are complex and flawed. There is always something intense and engaging going on in her stories. I am never bored. And while I am usually very good at inferencing, I admit that this author tends to surprise me. Often predictability is commonplace in romance novels. So when I can be surprised; it’s a good thing.

So, first let me tell you that this book is not a standalone. You’ll need to read Bodyguard To The Billionaire, which is book one of this duet. Of course that first book ends on a cliffhanger so consider yourself lucky that you can binge them both as The Billionaire’s Secret is releasing on September 17th 2019.

Theo and Zia have great chemistry and are perfect together. That is, until secrets are revealed. After Theo’s truths are revealed, he is worried that the woman he is falling in love with will want nothing to do with him. And yes, Zia is angry and feels betrayed. There is a lot going on in this book and since I don’t want to spoil it for you, I won’t say much more. But you I promise you there is a happy ending for Theo and Zia. And even Derrick! However, if you are a fan of Nan Malone’s Winston Isles, this is another book you won’t want to miss.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

This is a friends-to-lovers roommate romance filled with drama, suspense, and, of course, plenty of angsty slow burn goodness you’ve come to expect in a Kennedy Fox book!
 
 

 

 

 I knew within moments of meeting Mason Holt that he would change my life forever. I just didn’t realize how much.
As my world spirals out of control, he continues to stay by my side, protecting and taking care of me. Being just friends is all he’s been able to offer, that is until both of our lives are threatened. Now that our relationship is blossoming into something more, I can’t be what he needs even if I wished I could. 
Bad timing strikes again. 
When I think we can finally be together, someone threatens to tear us apart. I’m not the same girl Mason met three years ago, but I’m determined to fight for what I’ve always wanted–him.

Read Truly Mine Here to Catch Up!




The night we met in the dimly lit bar, she looked like a
brunette bombshell, and I wanted to learn her deepest secrets. With sun-kissed
skin and soulful bedroom eyes, she was pure temptation, and I was mesmerized.
As one drink led to two, I craved more of her playful banter and
taunting lips. Resisting her wasn’t an option, and we quickly became a
desperate mess of tangled limbs and hot kisses. She tasted like the sweetest
sin, but I was no saint.
Once we caught our breaths, and it became obvious that meeting
her wasn’t a coincidence, everything changed. Now I must deny her at all costs.
Friends
It’s all we can ever be.
After years of lying to myself and keeping her at a distance, I
want to pull her close. Sophie’s on my mind more than ever as my instincts to
protect her take over. Regardless of my attempts to help, she pushes me away
and makes it clear she doesn’t need me.
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to show her I’m the
good guy, but one night takes a tragic turn for the worse when her boyfriend
and I start throwing punches.
And ends when I’m arrested for his murder

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Fanstastic conclusion as usual by this amazing author duo. I absolutely love Kennedy Fox duets, even if their cliffhangers give me anxiety, lol. Let me say, here, if you haven’t read book one in the duet, you need to stop reading as this review may spoil that first book for you! This duet is not standalone reading and the first book ends in a major cliffhanger.

So, as you know, Mason got himself together to be what Sophie needs. After three long years of fighting his attraction to Sophie, Mason is finally able to move forward with a relationship. Then the cliffhanger! It was very scary to say the least when book one ended. This book opens right where book one ended. And let me tell you that my heart was racing in those first chapters. Yes, it was very bad. Kennedy Fox stopped at nothing to give us an angsty, intense and emotional read. There were some very graphic and frightening moments, so be warned.

When Sophie is finally rescued, the continuation of Mason and Sophie’s relationship was a bit halted because of what she suffered through. And do you know what? I appreciated that because it made the circumstances moving forward more believable. The situation was realistic. Mason and Sophie’s journey to happily-ever-after was easy to believe thanks to the author’s caring and talented writing. Truth be told, I don’t know how I would have gone through what Sophie did and come away with a positive ending. Mason was patient AND he was incredible with how he treated her. He never faltered or wavered in his devotion to Sophie or the future he was determined for them to share.

I don’t want to say anything more because you should experience all the feels on your own. I absolutely recommend this duet as well as the others in the Roommates series. You will not be disappointed.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

The moment I saw her walk through the door of Forbidden Ink, I knew she was the one. With her wide hips, thick thighs, and perfect breasts, she’s every man’s wet dream.

Add to that her dark, soulful eyes, pouty lips, and a body covered in gorgeous art, and I knew I needed to make her mine.

She’s a walking contradiction of sass and strength and determination, hidden by insecurity and self-doubt. She’s everything I could ever want or need, but she doesn’t see what I see.

I want to take away her pain. To be the one to make her laugh, to make all her dreams come true. I need to prove to her that I’m not him, that no matter what, I’ll be right there beside her. Loving her.

If only she could see herself through my eyes, she would understand we were made for each other.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Through His EyesThrough His Eyes by Nikki Ash

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When author Nikki Ash releases a book, I already know I’m going to #oneclick. Not because I’ve read all her books and they were amazing. But because the books of hers that I have read, I’ve enjoyed so much. And I read nine thus far, and hope to back-read anything I missed one day soon. The life of a blogger makes it hard to just read anything I want, anytime I want. Not complaining, just stating a fact. There is just not enough time in a day to read all we would like.

Through His Eyes was such a compelling book. The premise was real and believable. Quinn had been through so much with her previous marriage to a complete jerk. When is it okay for any man to make a woman feel less than beautiful and appreciated? To make a woman feel like she is never enough? Well the answer to that is never. But unfortunately when verbal bullying is all you know, it’s hard not to believe it.

This book is about healing. It’s about finding a way to love yourself once again; being confident and and able to trust in a man’s love once again. I appreciated how the author took her time with Quinn and Lachlan’s relationship. It was not rushed because otherwise it would not have been believable. That said, I also want to mention that this is an older woman/younger man romance. One of the issues Quinn has, on top of her already self-doubting, is that she thinks she is too old for Lachlan. Nikki Ash wrote Lachlan’s character to be mature for his age but still maintain his youthfulness. Again, another aspect that makes this book believable.

I won’t tell you much more so you can experience their journey on your own. However, I will tell you that Karma does make appearance when necessary. 😉 And that was another reason why this book was endearing to me. I highly recommend this book. If you haven’t yet read the previous interconnected books in this series, no worries. Through his Eyes is a stand-alone novel. Though, if you have the time I suggest you read the others as well. This will make your reading enjoyment even greater.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:  A Cowboy Under the Mistletoe

‘Tis the season for starting over for one military man turned cowboy in this new novel by the New York Times bestselling author of The Cowboy and His Baby.

Former Navy master-at-arms Jason Clements is down on his luck and calling in one last favor. His cousin has secured him a job opportunity as a cowboy working at Price Ranch in Wyoming. Too bad Jason has never even saddled a horse. If he can keep this job without his PTSD getting in the way, it’ll be a Christmas miracle.

Local busybody Sage Cooper loves Painted Barrel something fierce, but it’s time for her to move on. Since her father passed away, the family ranch feels too big for just her, and there’s no chance of finding a husband in this small town. To the rest of the world, she’s just another local fixture, known for her closet full of ugly Christmas sweaters and being perpetually single.

It isn’t until Jason shows up in desperate need of a cowboy crash course that Sage discovers a tall, dark, and handsome reason to stick around. And with the holidays coming up, Sage is in need of a date for a special event—maybe they’ll turn out to be each other’s best Christmas present.

📝My Review📝: 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

A Cowboy Under the MistletoeA Cowboy Under the Mistletoe by Jessica Clare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, I loved this book so much!
Why haven’t I read this author before now?
If I could give this book more than five stars, I certainly would. This author wrote in a way that tugged every one of my heartstrings. At some point we all say, “every now and then a certain book will come along and once you finish, you are left will long sigh, a huge smile and a feeling like you’ve been awarded something special,” Well that was A Cowboy Under The Mistletoe for me. A truly endearing, heartwarming, poignant story. I am absolutely going to put time aside and read more from Jessica Clare.

Sage and Jason…..
This is a story that you’ll need to experience each emotion your own, so I’m not going to tell you anything that will take away from that. Sorry, no spoilers.

Sage grew up in a small Wyoming town called Painted Barrel. While she is friends with everyone in town, Sage still feels very much alone. Sage made a decision that once the Spring rolled around, she would sell her ranch and move on to a larger town where she can start over and hopefully find love. With her longtime crush (never noticing her for more than his friend) getting married, Sage realizes she needs a change. It’s time.

Jason Clements has a story. An endearingly, heartbreaking story. He desperately wants to fit in, wants to finally call someplace home rather than jumping around from job to job. Employment is something Jason is struggling with due to his PTSD. While Sage had me sad for her loneliness, Jason’s story had my heart bleeding. That said, I really appreciated how the author wrote his struggles so I could experience them with him. I was sad when he was sad. When Jason was afraid, I was scared with him. And when he found love, I was teary-eyed, not to mention, relieved.

This book was so perfect for a Christmas romance.

I don’t want to say anything more other than this is a must read and I recommend you check it out when it releases mid-October. This book will leave you truly feeling warm and exudes that special feeling that is in the air around the holiday season. A Cowboy Under The Mistletoe has all the feels, and then some.

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, oh wow! Thank goodness I have more than nine lives because this author duo kills me every time. In a good way, of course.

Yep, you guessed it……cliffhanger!

So, that being said, there isn’t a whole lot I can tell you regarding details. But if you are familiar with this author and their duets, then no explaining is necessary. If not, then hang on for an emotional, angsty ride. Kennedy Fox can weave a tale of romance, angst, suspense and love every time. I always look forward to what comes next in their literary line up.

I can tell you this…..Mason and Sophie were introduced in the first duet of this amazing series. We know there is chemistry and something stronger between them. Even though we have never seen them on the pages together in any intimate circumstance, their attraction is so obvious. But why haven’t they acted on it? That is what you will finally find out in Truly Mine: Mason & Sophie.
I loved meeting Mason all over again with his own perspective. I really liked him. Of course I loved him too; he is a sexy man. But the fact that I like his character and the protective instincts he displays and the reasons he tries to distance himself from Sophie make him a gentleman as well.

As I said earlier in my review, I can’t say much because I won’t spoil this book for you. But I will say that it is amazing and I can’t wait to get my hands on book two, which is thankfully coming soon otherwise I’ll be having too many sleepless nights waiting to find out what happens next. Oh, and that cliffhanger? It’s a big one! 😉

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the tie to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

HE WANTS TO LOSE CONTROL.
Between his parents’ messed up marriage and his narcissistic younger brother, Lincoln Moorehead has spent the majority of his life avoiding his family. After the death of his father, Lincoln finds himself in the middle of the drama. To top it all off, he’s been named CEO of Moorehead Media, much to his brother’s chagrin. But Lincoln’s bad attitude softens when he meets the no-nonsense, gorgeous woman who has been given the task of transforming him from the gruff, wilderness guy to a suave businessman

SHE’S TRYING TO HOLD IT TOGETHER.
Wren Sterling has been working double time to keep the indiscretions at Moorehead Media at bay, so when she’s presented with a new contract, with new responsibilities and additional incentives, she agrees. Working with the reclusive oldest son of a ridiculously entitled family is worth the hassle if it means she’s that much closer to pursuing her own dreams. What Wren doesn’t expect is to find herself attracted to him, or for it to be mutual. And she certainly doesn’t expect to fall for Lincoln. But when a shocking new Moorehead scandal comes to light, she’s forced to choose between her own family and the broody, cynical CEO.

Handle With Care (Shacking Up, #5)Handle With Care by Helena Hunting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

How do I love this book? Let me count the ways, lol. As is usual for me, I am never disappointed in a Helena Hunting title. Her style of writing has always been the main aspect that keeps me coming back for more. Her characters are flawed and complex and while their backstories can be intense and even sad, there is always humor to balance out the emotions. This particular book had me laughing in so many places. Smiling constantly and having to explain to my daughter why I constantly have a goofy expression on my face. Never mind the glowing smile I’m showboating by the last page. This author’s style of writing is fun and refreshing with a ton of sexy banter and characters you can’t help but to fall in love with.

Handle With Care is the fifth book in the Shacking Up series. I loved them all but there was just a little extra something in this book that made this a perfect, all the feels, all the boxes checked, read. If you are a Helena Hunting fan, than I don’t have to explain. If you are new to her, then I wish you happy reading. You’ll love her writing and I absolutely recommend her as a must read author.

Lincoln and Wren…..
Wren currently works for Moorehead Media (Lincoln’s family’s company) as a handler for Armstrong who is Lincoln’s younger brother. Armstrong is a complete misogynistic jerk who doesn’t know how to be discreet or respectful. He is always in trouble and Wren was hired to keep him in line. Lincoln has been out of the country, intentionally for years. He doesn’t hide how much he despises his family but when his father’s heart attack forces him back to New York to take over the family business, it is Lincoln that will need Wren’s attention. You’ll enjoy finding out why, lol.

While Lincoln isn’t a business attire, CEO of a prestigious media company type of guy, he is a gentleman. Lincoln is intelligent and selfless and he is one of, if not, my favorite hero of this series.

I don’t want to say too much about how the story goes. There is a significant suspense element that kept me completely engaged. And while I had some ideas of what was going on, I was just as surprised as Lincoln when the resolution came. That said, the confrontation with the antagonist was one of my favorite moments. I strongly believe in karma. And I love it even more when it has a little push. Trust me on this one my friends…….this is a must read! Add this book to your TBRs.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

going anywhere, buddy.” I jabbed him in the chest in an attempt to create more
space. In close combat with this guy, I’d lose. Sure, I was faster and nimbler.
But one good hit and I’d be down.
His sharp,
slashing brows drew down. “Suit yourself. I know what to do with someone like
you.”
I’d bet he
did. And none of those things included me sleeping in my warm cozy bed tonight.
“Babe, come on the royal family wants a photo.”
Gray Eyes
arched a brow. “Darling, you go ahead I’ll meet you there.” His voice was sin
and bad decisions mixed together.
I stood my
ground. Now was no time for him to be noble. “Oh, I know King Sebastian
insists.”
“I’ll have
to pass, love.”
“Yeah, you
heard him, he’ll have to —”
He was
talking and also raising his right arm. All I saw was the black gleam, and I
acted, launching myself in the air and slamming against Gray Eyes. Toppling him
over and covering his body with mine, tranq gun raised.
Wasting no
time, I squeezed twice. The asshole about to shoot at us was big. Who knew if
two doses would be enough? But I was prepared to run.
The
muscle-bound brute fell to his knees. I rolled on my back, ready for anything.
But I
didn’t need to worry. Two hits with the tranq had done the job.
I sucked in
a shuddering breath.
When I
turned to my bed of muscles, he was glaring at me. “Do you have a bloody death
wish?”
His voice
had lost some of the sin quality. It was colder, like he was pissed.
I pushed to
my feet. “What? You wanted me to let you go with that asshole? He was going to
kill you.”
“I promise
you, I’m quite capable.”
Unbelievable. “You could have fooled me. Men
wielding weapons and shoving you into a car are generally bad news.”
His gaze
narrowed as he glowered at me. “I had it under control.”
I crossed
my arms. “Oh, so you’re delusional. Okay then. Goodbye, crazy. And P.S. You’re
welcome.”
“You
generally only say thank you when you’re glad someone did something.”
I shook my
head. “For fuck’s sake. Next time I’ll let you die then. Pity. You look
expensive, like someone would miss you, but it’s no skin off my back. I’ll just
let the homicidal asshole kill you when he wakes up.”
“You could
have been hurt. Did you pay attention to what just happened?”
“You mean
besides me putting on a display of badassery the likes of which you’ve never
seen? I also made this couture look damn good. Oh yes… and saved your ass.”
“My ass
didn’t need saving, princess.”
“I’m not a
princess, asshole. I’m a King’s Knight. I don’t need anybody to save me. Have a
nice life.” As I strutted off, I flipped him the bird.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I loved this book! Need part two like now!
Bodyguard To The Billionaire was the first part of the Billionaire duet. Since I have read several books by this author, I knew there was a cliffhanger coming. I seriously took three days to read this book because I kept intentionally putting it down. I was not looking forward to it ending and having to wait two months for the conclusion book; I wanted to prolong my time with the H/h. But I will tell you that if you wanted, you could devour it in a couple of hours.

As you already know, there is a cliffhanger. I knew it was coming but still wasn’t ready for it. Usually by this time in a book, I have inferred where the author is going. I make it my mission to figure things out before the climax. It’s just part of my reading enjoyment. That being said, I wasn’t ready. While I have guessed at a few conclusion options, I’m not there yet. This author is amazing at throwing mysterious plots and angst around. Oh, and let’s not forget to mention a whole lot of sexy billionaire.

Without giving too much away, Zia, one of the King’s Knights and a security professional at Royal Elite, has been given the task of protecting billionaire Derrick Arlington. Prior to her official position as his bodyguard, Zia has already has the pleasure (not) of meeting Derrick so she is not happy about the job. Unfortunately, Derrick is the King’s cousin and demands his protection.

Derrick Arlington is arrogant jerk. Or is he? There is a lot going on and I am not going to tell you anything. Trust me, part of the pleasure in reading this book, is experiencing every emotion, every moment on your own.

If you are already a fan of Nana Malone, then you know to expect a talented and intriguing romantic suspense. If you haven’t read her books yet, here is your opportunity. In my opinion, she is a must read author if you love romantic suspense with a whole lot of sexiness, with a cast of complex and lovable characters.

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Title: It’s Not Over
Authors: Kaylee Ryan & Lacey Black
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Blurb
GwenLately, life definitely isn’t how I envisioned it. I had it all. The house, the
job, the husband. Until one day, I didn’t. I don’t know when exactly things
started to change between us, only that it did, and in a big way. So much so, I
found myself standing before a judge and signing off on the end of my marriage.
To the only man, I’ve ever loved.

Now, he’s back, fighting, and ready to prove to me that we made a mistake, that
our love is worth giving this another chance. I’m not sure if he’s right, but I
know what my heart wants, and it wants him. My ex-husband.
Harrison

Why is it that you don’t know the depths of your mistakes until you’ve already
made them? I knew signing those papers was a bad idea, but I thought that’s
what she wanted. The minute we stepped foot out of that courtroom, it hit me.
She’s no longer mine.

That’s when I also realized, that I would do anything to change the past. I
have so many regrets. Not her. I could never regret her, but how we ended. We
never should have ended. I’m in for the battle of my life to convince her to
give us another shot. I have a plan, one that will prove to her that, it’s not
over.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Amazing! Totally Swoon-worthy!
Incredible, fantastic read!

This book tugged at all my heartstrings. From the very first page I was invested. I needed to see this amazing couple get there happily-ever-after. They deserved it so much!

Harrison and Winnie were happily married at one time. But lately, Harrison let his job come first. He didn’t mean to, though. All Harrison wanted was to create a future for him and his precious Winnie. They had made so many dreams over the decade they were together. And when that all came crashing down, it not only broke both their hearts, but mine was hurting too. And that right there is one of the many reasons I loved this book. This author duo had me engaged and eagerly awaiting for Winnie and Harrison’s happy-ever-after. They made me feel everything!

It’s not often I come across books where the H/h are already married. And even though there were only glimpses into their past together, I believed their relationship was special. I felt their love on every page. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that Winnie and Harrison belonged together.

I won’t go into details because I don’t want to ruin the experience of this amazing book for you. I will say that It’s Not Over is angsty and emotional with a good amount of suspense. In addition, there is a cast of secondary characters that bring even more depth and believability to the story. This was a book I immensely enjoyed. I believe there is going to be a book featuring Harrison’s best friend, Chase and Winnie’s sister Gabby. I am looking forward to that book!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:  The Match Maker’s Match

Could the best man be her best option?

The last person Meredith Turner expects to see at her best friend’s wedding rehearsal dinner is the guy she had a one night stand with. What’s worse, Lincoln Forrest is the best man and as maid of honor, her partner. To add insult to injury, she has to leave the rehearsal dinner early, and Lincoln is the one to help her with a deeply personal problem. The aftermath of that night brings big changes for them both.

Lincoln Forrest has helped his best friend meet the woman of his dreams, but recently he’s made a series of bad decisions, the biggest being leaving his career with the Army. Now the former K-9 handler is looking for a new career and trying to get his life back on track. Helping Meredith in her time of need connects her to him more than he expected. On a mission to right the wrong he created, Linc will do whatever is needed. But when the attraction that first drew them together flares to life again, will the obstacles between them be too much to overcome? Or has the matchmaker met his match?

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

The Matchmaker's Match (Man's Best Friend, #3)The Matchmaker’s Match by Nicole Flockton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this story very much.
What happens when a one night stand brings you face to face with the one you expected to never see again? Well the first thing is surprise, obviously. Then there is awkwardness, of course. See the thing is, while Meredith and Lincoln weren’t looking for anything beyond their one night, neither has forgotten the other. But then something awful happens to Meredith and Lincoln finds himself by her side. There wasn’t anywhere else he’d rather be.

Once Lincoln realizes that he could be happy with Meredith, it’s all hands on deck trying to convince her. Of course they both have obstacles to get through. But all was worth it in the end. I truly adored this book, the premise and talented writing went together nicely to entertain and endear me at the same time. This was actually book three in a series and I haven’t read the others. But I would definitely like to. The author brings characters from the previous books to pique our interest. That said, I definitely recommend this book.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
