Synopsis:

No one needs that many hookups!
Not even soon to be major league pitcher, Theo Von Bremen.
So, I help him by routinely thinning out his contact list—because I’m the best roommate ever. And he’s optimal baby daddy material.
For me—not Amanda 1, 2, or 3.
But since the man can’t take a hint; I’ll continue to spray his sheets with my perfume and accidentally leave my panties in his laundry.
That has to be enough to break a man eventually. Right?

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Pitcher (Commander in Briefs #0.5)Pitcher by Kristy Marie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fantastic!
5 Stars!
Wow! Just wow!
First, I have to tell you this is the prequel to already published Commander In Briefs. Pitcher is not recommended to be read as a standalone. You can read it as a standalone if you want to, but you just can’t appreciate its greatness without reading Commander In Briefs as well. That said, I hope you will give this author a chance because she is an amazing writer. Literally, I am always impatiently waiting for her next release. I immensely enjoyed reading all her books.

Theo and Anniston…..
Ok, so to say these two have a complicated relationship is the understatement of the year! My heart kept breaking for Anniston. She needed Theo in her life and she would take him anyway she could. And while Theo needed Anniston as well, he wasn’t ready for the next step. I will say that Theo was selfish when it came to Anniston. He wouldn’t let himself have her, so no-one else would either. Their relationship was very intense. But I already knew that after reading CIB. In fact, Theo is probably the most intense, possessive, and impatient hero I have ever read.

I’m not going into details because I don’t really need to. This book is the introduction to how Theo and Anniston came to be best friends, then more. Trust me when I say, for a short book, all the “feels” are there. I’m going to admit, that while reading this book, I bit off all my finger nails! I even have bandaids on a couple of fingers. Thanks for that, Kristy, lol. ❤ This book is a must read for all you Theo and Anniston fans. I’d also like to mention that after finishing Pitcher, I started to re-read CIB. I need more Theo!

Amazing Kristy!!

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

Now Available! Roommate Duet Series Book Two, Baby Yours by Kennedy Fox! ~ My Review Below Post 👇

The worst day of my life happened when Brandon
died. 
We had our entire future mapped out. 

Careers, marriage, kids—in that order. 

Then the universe threw a curveball and ended it
all. 

As I come to terms with everything, I learn I’m
carrying his baby. Now I’m living with his roommate, the guy who’s made my life
a living hell the past two years. Hunter’s now the one to hold me up when all I
want to do is fall. 
Knowing my religious parents will never accept
the pregnancy out of wedlock, Hunter offers to be my fake husband. While I
think he’s gone crazy, it’s the only plan that’ll keep them in my life. So I do
whatever it takes to make our relationship believable—kissing, touching, even
letting him hold me when we sleep. The lines are so blurred neither of us want
to admit we’re no longer pretending. 

The guilt of what we’re doing eats me alive as I
struggle to deal with my emotions. I push him away, but he pulls me closer,
showing me how he’s always felt.  

Just as I begin to follow my heart, I learn
Hunter’s been keeping secrets.

And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my
life…

**This is book 2 in the Hunter & Lennon
duet and must be read after Baby Mine. Recommended for ages 18+**

 

 
 
 













 

 
I saw her first.
Blonde. Gorgeous. Feisty.
I was smitten. 
But it didn’t matter because she chose him and he was my best friend and roommate. I’d never be able to compete with that, so I pushed her away instead. It was easy when she lived hours away, and I didn’t have to see her every day, but then she moved in with us. 
Now, I’m screwed.To her singing in the shower every morning, dancing in the kitchen while she makes coffee, and doing yoga in our living room, I can’t stop thinking about her in all the wrong ways. She’s not mine and never will be, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to push her against a wall and claim her mouth.

She’s constantly on me for making messes, bringing chicks home every weekend, and being a smartass when their PDA gets on my nerves. Considering neither of them know how I feel, it’s not fair for the way I act toward them. I should move out so I can get over her for good; however, the selfish part of me can’t let go. 

But then the unthinkable happens… 
When my best friend dies in a motorcycle accident, the two of us are left to grieve our loss together. Instead of pushing her away, I pull her closer. 

Just as we come to terms with our new reality, she finds out she’s pregnant with his baby. 
And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my life…

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Baby Yours: Hunter & Lennon, #2 (Roommate Duet, #2)Baby Yours: Hunter & Lennon, #2 by Kennedy Fox

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one of those times where I love the book but not so much the heroine. Hunter saved this entire duet for me. Let me explain. So, you obviously read book one if your here. If not, stop reading now because there are likely spoilers for the first book in my review. As I was saying, I did not like Lennon in the first book; barely tolerated her until the last chapters of the book. Hunter wasn’t perfect either but I was understanding towards his reasons. It could likely be my opinion only, but I absolutely hated what Lennon put Hunter through.

Hunter was a strong character. Saying he is loyal to a fault is an understatement. There were times I was so frustrated with how he let Lennon run hot and cold and didn’t once complain.

So, getting to the cliffhanger at the end of book one. When the book started, I expected the story to continue right at that moment but it didn’t and I did not mind that at all. I wanted these two to have a bit of fun for once and when they got to Utah, they did exactly that. That part of the book was sweet and in my opinion, the moments where Lennon and Hunter’s relationship started to become something more. Unfortunately, Lennon continued her hot and cold behavior with Hunter after they returned home to California and this broke my heart. Of all the heroes I read this year, his character is one of my favorites. Not only was he there for Lennon during all the rough times, but because he wanted to be as close to her as possible he put his own heart through an emotional ringer. I love him for his loyalty, perseverance, and patience, and protectiveness. A less better man would have walked away a long time ago but Hunter kept on hoping and believing that things would work out.

The rest of the book is a slow burn. I appreciated this aspect because like the development of their friendship into more, it had to be a slower pace to be believable. And it was. By the end, I believed in them as a couple. I believed in Hunter and Lennon’s happily-ever-after.

I’ve always enjoyed this author duo’s writing and I will continue to come back for more. The next duet in this series will feature Mason and Sophie. I have been rooting for those two from the start. I can’t wait to see how these two will find there HEA. Knowing these authors, it will not be easy.

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

To Love a Prince (The Prince Duet #2)To Love a Prince by Nana Malone

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I still can’t believe I only recently read my first books by this author. I have some serious back-reading to do. This author is very talented with romantic suspense, adding in a few twists and turns to keep us on our toes. In this book, I won’t lie, I did predict the end. That’s just me, though. Once I know there is a suspense plot, I am reading between the lines until I can figure it out. Still, I wasn’t 100% sure until later on in the book. To say I can’t wait to read more about Royal Elite is an understatement.

That said………
This is not a standalone. To Love a Prince is the completion of The Prince Duet. I absolutely loved the intrigue and mystery weaved into Ariel and Tristan’s story. These two have massive chemistry. In the first book, Ariel and Tristan are reunited. However, it is not a joyous reunion. There was conspiracy that tore them apart. Ten years! It took ten years for these two to have the deserved happily-ever-after they deserved. Hopefully, you read the first book and already know that Ariel and Tristan are together. But things are not entirely what they seem. There are still dangers and manipulation trying to ruin their happy-ever-after.

So, this is where I have to tell you that you’re going to have to wait to read this on your own if you’re looking for more details from me. Truthfully, there isn’t much more I can say without possibly spoiling this book for you. I can tell you, there is more suspense, intrigue, & danger to keep you on your toes. Right up to the very end!

If you haven’t ever read any of this author’s books, I want to tell you her writing talent is amazing. The writing flow is steady and her books are easy to devour in no time at all. I definitely recommend Nana Malone for you future reading enjoyment.

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

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Oh my gosh! I need book two right now! I hate cliffhangers because I am the epitome of impatient. I get so invested if the story is great, therefore I live with anxiety waiting for the book’s resolution. Don’t get me wrong, some cliffhangers are just meh and I can wait for those closures patiently. However, Baby Mine was so good! This book has so much emotion. I will tell you now it is sad, tragic, emotional, and full of angst. This is one HEA I will be looking forward to.

So, the blurb pretty much tells you what is going to happen. And while I was preparing myself for the worst, it wasn’t enough. Yep! I had to put this book down and cry my ugly out before I could continue. So, yep, I continued the following day because I literally needed that time to breath. This is not a light read for sure.

Hunter and Lennon…..and Brandon
While Brandon does not have his own POV, his part in this book is heavy.

Hunter meets Lennon (first) at the club he bartends at. There was strong, undeniable chemistry between them and Hunter was eager to see where it could go. Unfortunately, Lennon, due to insecurities, ends up going home with Brandon. You should know here that Lennon’s feelings for Brandon were real. As the story goes on, so does the relationship between Lennon and Brandon. Hunter is not okay with it because he wanted her first. That said, Hunter won’t mess with his best friend’s happiness. And so the angst begins. Both Lennon and Hunter are not easy characters to like through the first half of the book. I won’t tell you why but you will quickly figure that out.

During the second half of the book, we see Hunter and Lennon’s relationship start to change. They actually will become friends. They need each other now to grieve the loss of Brandon. As they grow closer, feelings on Lennon’s side start to confuse her. Hunter has always been an open book regarding his feelings for Lennon but he won’t cross any lines. (When I explain ‘open book.’ I just mean the reader knows his heart, not Lennon)

I really don’t want to say more in the way of details but I will tell you that what comes at the end was a complete surprise to me. Writing this review is giving me anxiety all over again. I must have the next book! ASAP! Well done Kennedy Fox!!!

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

Unfortunately, Lennon, due to insecurities, ends up going home with Brandon. You should know here that Lennon’s feelings for Brandon were real. As the story goes on, so does the relationship between Lennon and Brandon. Hunter is not okay with it because he wanted her first. That said, Hunter won’t mess with his best friend’s happiness. And so the angst begins. Both Lennon and Hunter are not easy characters to like through the first half of the book. I won’t tell you why but you will quickly figure that out.

During the second half of the book, we see Hunter and Lennon’s relationship start to change. They actually will become friends. They need each other now to grieve the loss of Brandon. As they grow closer, feelings on Lennon’s side start to confuse her. Hunter has always been an open book regarding his feelings for Lennon but he won’t cross any lines. (When I explain ‘open book.’ I just mean the reader knows his heart, not Lennon)

I really don’t want to say more in the way of details but I will tell you that what comes at the end was a complete surprise to me. Writing this review is giving me anxiety all over again. I must have the next book! ASAP! Well done Kennedy Fox!!!

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

📝MY REVIEW📝:

Protecting the Heiress (The Heiress Duet #1)Protecting the Heiress by Nana Malone

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a new to me author. And I love her! This book is the first part of a two book set. So I really can’t give a true review when this ends in a cliffhanger. I can tell you that every aspect of this book is enjoyable. The premise is so adorable, I don’t remember ever reading a book like this before. There are a lot of secondary characters in this story that have been introduced in previous related books. I have to say I am intrigued to read all those books.

So just a quick recap…..Jax and Neela…..
Jax is going undercover to protect an adorable baby girl from being kidnapped. He also has to protect this child’s guardian. And in the process, Jax will have to protect his heart as well. There is intrigue, suspense and danger. Not to mention some things I didn’t see coming. Well, I’m off to read the second book. I hate cliffhangers so I need to get my resolution before I go crazy, lol.

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

📝MY REVIEW📝:

Tempting the Heiress (The Heiress Duet #2)Tempting the Heiress by Nana Malone

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just when he thought he lost everything important, Jax find himself evaluating his life and his luck. A job meant to protect a baby and her guardian turned into so much more. Jax is working for a new security firm and his end goal is to eventually get back his job as a Royal Guard. This is all he wants. His end game. But the journey he is now on will give him so much more than the job he thought he always wanted.

Neela and Jax get off to a slow start for no other reason than their relationship needs to stay professional. But as romances go, you know that doesn’t happen. While they did not jump into bed immediately, it was amazing to watch their relationship grow into something more. I loved when they finally acted on their feelings; that it was believable.

But the day after, the s**t hits the fan. Sorry no details from me. 😉

As you know, this book is part two of a duet. It is not a stand-alone. Part one ends in a cliffhanger and will leave you anxious to get your hands on part two. Luckily, the complete duet is available so you can do what I did, and read them back to back.

This book has all the feels! There is action and adventure and a few dangerous surprises along the way. This duet is actually my first read by this author. It definitely won’t be the last. I can’t wait for the next duet in this series to release. And that is thank fully soon.

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

Twenty-five-year-old Anthea Links is a columnist for Rogue magazine. The job she loves is on the line when she’s faced with writer’s block and given a deadline she knows she can’t meet—that’s until her best friend, Pip, comes up with the perfect idea.
Anthea never says no to a dare, and this one is so perfect it will solve all of her problems.
Twelve men.
Twelve months.
Twelve articles.
But there’s a catch: Anthea can’t know the real names of the men she dates, and she must only refer to them by a Spanish number.
Mister Uno is unsuspecting victim number one. He’s domineering, alluring, wealthy, and a surprise packet Anthea never imagined.
Will Anthea be able to hide her identity from each gentleman suitor?
Will she complete the dare and keep her job?
And will she do it without falling in love?

My Goodreads Review:

Mister Uno: A Short Story Series ( Mister, Mister Series #1)Mister Uno: A Short Story Series by Belle Brooks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So I’m not sure how to rate this book since it’s part one of twelve novelettes. The premise is a bit tricky to understand. The heroine is a columnist for a magazine and she is doing a piece in which she will date a different guy for twelve months. Yes there is going to be twelve men in her life. I’m not sure where the author is going with this. I’ll be honest, while this read like a romcom, I’m not sure how I feel about the heroine dating so many men. However, since this is the first time I read anything like this, I want to stick it out and see what the author has planned. I will say that I hope there won’t be a huge wait in between books.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
