Love and second chances

What a wonderful story filled with heartache, regret and second chances. I loved downhill skier Dane Hollister (what a fab name), I loved his dark grumpy side, and I especially loved his gentle, soft side. Once I realised his issues I understood the how and the whys. Willow was so forgiving with Dane without letting him walk all over her. Initially when Dane and Willow met, it was a one time thing. Dane doesn’t do relationships, Willow accepts that, but Dane doesn’t make it easy on her with his mixed messages. Then there’s the small matter of the predicament she’s just found herself in. Heaven help her, because Dane won’t. I loved the supporting characters, Coach and Callie being the main ones that challenge both Dane and Willow. Brilliant narration that worked perfectly for these characters.

A must for all Pucked fans

I adore Darren and Charlene, in fact I adore the whole ‘Pucked’ family. Always great to catch up with them all, and Pucked Love gave me the chance to do just that whilst enjoying another hilarious sexy Helena Hunting read. After 2 years together it seems that Darren and Charlene know little about each other (except how to bring each other to orgasm). All that’s about to change when friends and family start sticking their nose where it’s not wanted. It’s the end of their privacy as they’ve known and loved it, this of course makes for another fantastic Pucked story full of sex, drama and of course hockey. Wonderful writing and narration, because of course I’m too impatient to wait for the written word. A must for all Pucked fans.

4.5 Down and Dirty Stars

Enjoyable, if not a little predictable romance following tabloid reporter Elise Warner as she tries to get some dirt on sexy, single and extremely private country music singer Keith Perkins. With his squeaky clean reputation Elise is certain he’s hiding something, and he is, it’s just not what anyone would expect. With a few twists and turns, wonderful writing and an addictive storyline full of laughter, emotional drama, and some down and dirty sexy times. I loved the characters, the good were great, the bad were downright evil. A complete win for me. I loved it.
I love listening to both Tracy Marks and Sebastian York on audible, so it really was a no brainier giving their performances 5 stars. They fit the roles of Elise and Keith perfectly.

Oh Mr President 💕

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A light, easy read with no drama, just one super sexy and very stubborn take charge guy, Matthew Hamilton (running for President no less), and one star struck, young Aid, who has crushed on Matt since she was 11. It’s no wonder that she is unable to resist him, I don’t think I would have. Sadly there is no room in his life for a partner, lover or wife if he makes the Presidency. I understand his reasoning, not sure if it’s a solid reason, but hey-ho, what do I know. My heart broke for these two, and I could not understand why, during the campaign, they couldn’t have a relationship. I need their happy ending and I’m hoping I get it in the next book, which, needless to say, I’m 1-clicking as I type.
The narration, although good, wasn’t the best. I warmed immediately to Isabelle Gordon, she was a great Charlotte. Unfortunately John Lane didn’t work for me as Matt.

Light and easy

While I really enjoyed this book, it didn’t rock my world like some of Lauren Blakely’s books have. It was an enjoyable, easy read, lots of sexy time (ok part of that may have rocked), a little angst and a sweet storyline. Jack Sullivan is one of New York’s most eligible bachelors, he’s mega rich, successful and sexy as sin. Of course he comes with baggage (name me a book boyfriend who doesn’t). Michelle Milo is a therapist who also has baggage, namely a life long crush on her friend, unrequited love can be the worst. When they decide to spend 30 nights together to get each other out of their systems you know it’s going to blow up in their faces. A lovely story, beautifully written (as always) by this author, sadly it didn’t blow me away.
The beauty of getting this book on audio is you get the prequel “One Night With Her” as a bonus with audible. That, and you get to listen to Sebastian York’s voice. Double bonus.

Expect the Unexpected

Holy Moly!! This series! I never want it to end. Just when I think it can’t get any better. BAM! Out comes a new release, better than the last one. How is that even possible? Two words. Dante Nicolasi. Brother to Val (book 7, Empire) and taken into the protection of ‘The Family’, trained and accepted as one of them. He in turn takes it upon himself to protect (not fall in love with), El Petrov who has been rescued from ‘The Russians’. I loved the chemistry between Dante and El, I loved the comradeship between all the Family, the banter is just hilarious, Mafia bosses basically acting like children. The story is addictive, emotional, happy, sad and funny, all rolled into one. Mafia romance at its best. I’ve learned to expect the unexpected, I started this series on audible and I intend to finish this series on audible, even if it means I have to wait (and believe me the wait is killing me). Narration is perfect across the board.

3.5 Stars

New authors for me, and although it was an enjoyable read, it didn’t blow me away. I liked Britta, a lot, she was straight up, she didn’t take any cr@p off anyone, and I loved her attitude. Her brothers were brilliant, and of course are super protective, and their friend Hawk, who also happens to be Britta’s boss, is in their eyes off limits. Britta and Hawk are also good friends, so when Britta needs a fake fiancé to take to her ex’s wedding, Hawk is the obvious choice. The chemistry between Hawk and Britta is palpable, I love Hawk’s take charge attitude in the bedroom (well not just the bedroom, pretty much everywhere). The story has a couple of little twists that I didn’t see coming. All in all a light easy read. The narration from Felicity Hart was faultless, Biff Summers however, in my opinion, was not a perfect Hawk.

Enemies to Lovers - Slap Slap Kiss - Wonderful

Ooh, I love a storyline with an alpha male and a take no sh!t female lead, and this one definitely falls into that category. Jackson Boudreaux is rich and arrogant, but underneath his harsh exterior he’s got a soft centre. However, when he demands a table at Bianca Hardwick’s restaurant, neither of them are prepared for the sparks that fly. Enemies to lovers is one of my favourite genres. The storyline is tried and tested and there really aren’t many surprises but it’s so well written with wonderful characters, lots of sexy time and a few emotional scenes had me hooked. A lovely addition to the end of some of the chapters were recipes for drinks and food. The final recipe for a cocktail, “Slap Slap Kiss” is on my to do list. Although as I listened to the audio version of this book, I couldn’t screen shot any of the recipes, that though is the only downside of this audio. Perfect narration from both Sebastian York and Diana York definitely makes up for it.

Fun and Flirty

Predictable yet enjoyable read following CEO Emmett, who in his way to the office gets stuck in an elevator with Jenna, Jenna is on her way to the sperm bank. During their small talk in the elevator (they are the only two in it after all), it is more or less decided that Emmett will become said sperm donor, the story then follows them as they boink like rabbits and try their best not to get attached to each other, or god forbid, fall in love. Obviously there is a lot more to it than that, there’s even a little twist in the storyline. Fun flirty read, lovely characters, although Jenna did annoy me a little in the earlier chapters. The narration by Sebastian York was faultless, CEO definitely works for him.
