Review…..Hollywood Scandal by Louise Bay

HollywoodScandal.Ebook_.v3-Amazon

“He was a Hollywood Movie Star and she was the girl next door”

…..are you ready to meet Matt and Lana??

Louise Bay for me is always a “go to” author, her books are good reads and easy to read in one sitting and this book was no exception I enjoyed it from the first few pages. Lana is a real “girl next door” lives in a small town, enjoys the simple things in life and likes to keep her life private. She owns a handmade jewellery shop and spends most of her time there or at home sketching new designs that was until she got a HOT new neighbour who actually was a famous Hollywood actor but she had no idea…..

Matt was one of Hollywoods A listers and had decided to hire a cottage in a small town like Maine while filming on the coast. Matt is known for his wild ways with different women every night and all night partying but he’s trying to reform himself for the good of his career. Matt never had to work at getting a woman but when he set his sights on Lana he knew he had to have her, but she was having none of it so it was game on for him……..

This book took us on so many journeys Matt trying to reform himself but with meeting Lana he was learning a different side to himself as she was nothing like the other women he had met could he possibly be developing feelings for her….

Lana has her reasons for leading such a secluded life and as we read through the book we see how hurt she had been in the past. This leads her to a difficult decision if Matt and her are to try and have a relationship in the public eye.

When Lana and Matt are together nothing is more perfect, we can see that she is just what he needs and he treats her like she is a goddess. Lana gives Matt the”normal” that is excluded from his famous lifestyle. Lana very much becomes his strength throughout the book and together they make a great team but can Matt be there for Lana when her worst nighmare become reality…….

As this book isn’t released yet I don’t wasnt to give too much away but its the book that will give you all the feels, you will be swooning with Matt’s way with words, laughing at how witty Lana is as she is a fantastic heroine, and hoping the whole way through for the happily ever after. Not only does this book introduce you to two fantastic characters but you will meet some very important characters that play a large part in this couples lives.

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review and I can safely give this book a well deserving 4 Stars.

 

Review…..The Baby Clause by Melanie Moreland

Screenshot_2017-06-08-21-47-00-1

This book was such a lovely peek in to what the future holds for Katy and Richard after The Contract.

At the end of The Contract Richard had come to terms with the fact he was going to be a father and this book takes us on the journey of the birth and months following Gracie’s birth.

Katy as always is the person who grounds Richard and he in return is her strength. Katy always knows what Richard needs and he knows when he looks in her eyes that she understands his distress.

In this book you will see that Richard is besotted with his baby daughter and is a very hands on dad. These new parents go through the months of no sleep and their world is turned upside down with this one little person that they would move the earth for if they could.

This is a short book but a lovely read and a few surprises along the way if you loved The Contract this is a definite must read.

Review……Mr Dark by Pavan Kaur

9d4d7-mr2bdark2bcover2b

This book is going to blow you away Pavan Kaur always pulls us into a book with an unforgettable story and this is no different……..

Kevin Dark is the CEO of Dark Media. He has specific requirements when is comes to women in his life and when Ava Banks starts as an intern at Dark Media he can’t seem to get her out of his mind. Kevin wants a Submissive not a girlfriend he has always felt that there is no room in his life for feelings as he totally forcused on work all the time. Can he convince Ava to be his Sub and can they keep their arrangment strickly outside work….

Ava Banks is a beautiful smart young woman who has a dark past. She was attracted to Mr Dark and couldn’t believe how HOT he was in person when she saw him but that was as far as her thoughts went until her asked her to have dinner with him. Ava had no idea what being a Sub would involve and she agreed to think about it. As these two spent more time together all the little moments they share made things heat up…

Ava embarked in her Submissive role and they spent alot of time together but feelings started to creep in for both of them and they struggled to hide them. At work it was getting harder and Kevin’s family were beginning to ask who was this woman that had him so happy all the time. As always the past always has a way of catching up with us and so Ava’s came back to haunt her. Kevin was not happy about this at all and this is were we saw him desperately trying to control his need to protect her and at this point we saw a man in love………….

This book took me on a journey of every emotion, love , lust, loss, forgiveness and understanding. It had the perfect amount of BDSM and I have to say those sex scenes where on fire!!! I loved how the book went from the beginning of their story and we could see the relationship develop. The characters were fantastic in this book, for me Ava was a true heroine she is quirky and smart. I found her totally lovable and with everything she had been through in her life she came back a strong and independent woman. Ava was like a dream to Kevin she was everything he could possibly want in his life. Together they break down the walls they had build to protect their hearts for years but will it be enough or will they break each other in the process. You will have to buy it to find out LOL…………

I really could not recommend this book enough I give it a well deserving 5+ stars

Can Farren and Rogan resist each other after their one night in Italy…….

Farren Fields is a young, smart beautiful woman who has dreamed her whole life of working for Rogan Rayner. Farren is not afraid to go after what she really wants but when she realises how attrachtive her future employer really is her willpower is tested to the max…..

Rogan Rayner is a drop dead gorgeous alpha male who always gets what he wants but when he employs Farren has his new assistant can he restrain himself???

This was a really good office romance story I found it easy reading but interesting enough to keep picking it up. Farren and Rogan from very early on we could see how compatable there were together, he respected her and felt intrigued every day with how intelligent she really was. When Rogan asked Farren to accompany him to Italy to close a deal she was ecstatic and could not wait. This is where we seen these two drop their guards and say to hell with the rules and turn the heat up in Italy. Farren was the woman to break down Rogan’s walls and she didn’t even know it. They had one amazing night together and although Rogan wanted more Farren gave the impression that it was a one night thing and played it cool.

The sexual tension between these two was off the chart and as the book developed I saw a softer side of Rogan, a side that gave the impression he was developing feelings to Farren, feelings that were foreign to this apha male. The book takes a few twists and when Farren learns that she is indeed pregnant with Rogans child she is torn between telling him and keeping the whole thing a secret. This is a major part in the book and we get to know a little about Farren’s up bringing and how it affects the decision which she makes.

I’m not going to say what decision Farren makes or how her and Rogan end up because I want you all to read it for yourself but I will say this, Nicole R.Locker wrote the perfect ending to this book she didn’t drag it out and leave us hanging and it definitely wasn’t how I expected it to go. There were a few swoony moments and a few OMG whats going to happen next moments.

I really enjoyed this book it was fun, romantic, sexy and suspenseful. I give this book a well deserving 4 stars.

Review……Say I’m Yours by Corinne Michaels

say im yours

Can Trent make it right with Grace before it’s too late……..

Grace and Trent have been in a on/off relationship for the past 20 years but now is the time where Grace wants more. Grace loves Trent with everything in her heart but fears that he doesn’t feel the same so she ends things with him and tries to move on with her life. Grace feels now its time for her to settle down, get married and have a family and ideally she would want that with Trent but that is never going to happen in her eyes so she must move on and try and find her happily ever after.

Trent has taken Grace for granted all these years that whenever he wanted a little fun she would be there but now that she has called time on that arrangement can he tell her how he really feels. Trent thought at first he could win Grace over but she was having none of it but the game changes when he hears that she is going out on a date with  Cooper Townsend. Trent is more than pissed off and when his brothers show no sympathy towards him that makes him worse. Can Trent show Grace how he really feels before its too late…..

Grace and Coopers date was a disaster and after having to call Trent to the rescue could it get any worse but Grace is now more torn than ever as Cooper is so nice and has been perfectly honest about how he feels about her. Grace decides to drown her sorrows with a few bottles of wine and when she wakes the following morning to Trent in bed beside her OMG…. So after a morning of old times between the sheets Trent tells Grace exactly how he feels and she has waited years to hear it an doesn’t know what to say so she asks him for time.

Grace and Trent’s story is an emotional rollercoaster as Trent’s father falls ill and the whole Hennington family is thrown in a tailspin. Trent realises a secret that has been hiden from him his whole life but can he deal with this alone or will Grace be able to help him through it. Grace is the only person who knows Trent inside out and when he pushes her away she knows that now is the time she takes control and makes him do the right thing with her firmly by his side.

This book was everything and more from Corinne Michaels. She take us on a journey of love, loss and happily ever after but she never forgets a few twists along the way. Trent and Grace will make you laugh, cry and at times wish you could bang there heads together but we can’t forget those swoony moments that will melt our hearts.

I give this book a well deserving 5+ stars

Review…..Courage to Love by Pavan Kaur

courage to love

Does Scarlett have the courage to fight for their love………

I have been waiting so long for this book to be released the perfect ending to a fantastic series. At the end of book 2 in the series Courage to Fight Rhett leaves to return to London and gives Scarlett three flight tickets in hope that she would use one and come to him in London and give him a chance to show her his demons. So with all the anticpation of will she go or will she walk away from Rhett we know by now that Scarlett goes to London and this book takes us on that journey.

Rhett cannot believe that she is in London and is determined this time to make things right with her. Scarlett on the other hand wants to give him time to talk but is scared that he won’t like before. We see a different Rhett and Scarlett here in book 3 they are more developed as a couple and things are definitely on a more serious key with them. Rhett loves Scarlett so much and all he really wants is to make her happy but is scared that when she learns of his demons that she will run the other direction….

In this book we get a real insight in to the other characters that will play a big part in Scarlett and Rhetts life. This shows the support this couple has and how although Scarlett grew up with a foster family she has now gained people in her life who she can call family. We see Scarlett spending alot of time with Rhett’s mother while Rhett trains for his fight and we can read how a true friendship forms quickly out of pure respect for each other and an openess to get to know each other.

Rhett promises Scarlett that he will show her his demons after the fight which is taking place on New Years Eve as he wants them to start a new year together with nothing hidden between them, a fresh start. Scarlett has met some of his demons already and she has already made up her mind that they can work through whatever it is but poor Rhett doesn’t know this. After the fight Rhett takes Scarlett to the place where his demon lies and his revelation breaks Scarletts heart but I’m not going to tell you what it is but its fab…….

This book had me hooked from the start it consumed me. Reading through I was torn with some very moving moments where it pulled at my heart and then I had some angry moments where I wanted these two to sort things out. Scarlett is the true heroine of this book and to think she has come through so much in her life and in the end it is her who puts Rhett back together. Scarlett holds the key to the happiness of them both and she doesn’t even realise it.

I give this book a well deserving 5+ stars I absolutely loved it….

Review……The Distance Between Us by Abigail Davies

distance between us

Can Kitty and Charlie close the distance between them…….

This is Book 3 in The Mac Security Series and I do think every book just keeps getting better. This book is consuming on such a high level and at no stage will you feel it boring or predictive. Kitty and Charlie’s story has been one that we have seen glimpses of throughout the series but the actual story you will not see coming……

Kitty is a member of the Mac Security team. She’s a brave, strong independent woman who lives for her job and is loyal to her work colleagues. Kitty has always kept her feelings for Charlie close to her heart never allowing the hard exterior to slip but how long can that last for anyone. When Kitty goes undercover to do a job she ends up getting shot and this is when we see Kitty really struggle, she has been taking pills to get her through the day before her injury and now we see the addict within struggle to hide her addiction from the people she loves.

Charlie is a Ty’s brother (Kitty’s Boss). He met Kitty before she even started working at the compound and they have had this “relationship” where they use each other to satisfy each others needs and don’t talk about again but this is going on ages. Charlie’s wife died and he has never really dealt with that issue and this book shows Charlie’s POV on his wife’s death and his true feelings for Kitty.

This book will draw you in at the first sentence and leave you on the edge of your seat the whole way through. It has addressed the subject of addiction and not only from the addicts POV but the man she loves. We see the daily struggles that Kitty has to endure and her lowest breaking point but can Charlie to her back together or is he too broken himself.

We read a true romantic side to this book also, two people who truely love each other and who are made for each other in more ways than they even can imagine. I felt reading it that all I wanted Kitty to do was talk to Charlie and tell him how she really felt but shes a stubborn woman and kept me hanging. We see more of the other members of the Mac Security team and get to know them a little better too.

This book took me on a rollercoaster of emotion. It left me loving this series more than I thought possible and admiring the strength and courage that Charlie and Kitty show.

I give this book a well deserving 5+ stars I absolutely love it……

Review….Playing to Win by Karen Frances

Playing to Win Ebook Cover

Will Jess and Fletcher find their happily ever after……..

With Book 1 ending with a cliffhanger and leaving us all wanting more this book give us all of that and more. This book takes us on yet another emotional ride through this couples relationship and leaves us wondering will they find their happy ending???

Fletcher Adams would move mountains to be with Jess, to protect her, take any stress away and stay right by her side for as long as she lets him. Leading his life as a high profile footballer always comes with your private life being invaded by the media and he tries to protect Jess from this as long as possible as he didn’t want them digging in to her personal life. But he reaches a time where its Jess that decides how they handle things and he does whatever makes her happy because as we see in this book Fletcher Adams is completely “pussy whipped” lol…..

Jess is slowly rebuilding her life and her business has never been better. She can’t quite put a name on how she feels about Fletcher but she knows that when shes with him she feels safe and happy. Jess’s ex-boyfriend has left her with debt and baggage that only she can deal with and we watch as she grows stronger and more confident again. In this book Jess learns to be an empowered woman again and how to leave the victim behind. This whole series shows how domestic abuse should not happen but highlights when it can happen, how it can happen and the damage that it can cause and the scars that always remain but yet again Karen Frances nailed it.

This book was the perfect ending to a fantastic series, there was nothing left unanswered. This couple healed each other, accepted each other and there faults. They dealt with ex-boyfriends, crazy blonde women who would do anything to make money, health problems, family and when all that was done they both realised that they loved each other unconditionally and as they watched the sun rise and fall they too fell more in love than ever.

This was the perfect ending I enjoyed every moment that I spent reading this series. The epilogue made my heart swoon even though time had passed between Jess and Fletcher the chemistry always remained and he adored her. Jess gave Fletcher more than he could ever have wished for in his lifetime and she sooo owned him. This couple gets their happily ever after and they totally deserve it after all they go through.

I give this book a well deserving 5 stars I loved it..

Review……Playing the Game by Karen Frances

Emotional, Heartbreaking and totally gripping……………

Jessica (Jess) Taylor is the heroine in this book and she is a strong successful woman who has been subjected to domestic abuse by her partner. Jess’s partner attacked her while she was pregnant resulting in her being hospitalised. Jess struggles to come to terms with what has happened and goes through some very low times in the days following her attack. Jess returns to stay with her parents after being discharged from the hospital and this is when she first meets Fletcher Adams.

Fletcher Adams is a high profile footballer who returns to Scotland to deal with his inheritance from his grandmother. Fletcher has changed to play for Scotland and has decided that a quiet life might be what he needs. He has the reputation of a womanizer and loves a good party. His life is constantly in the papers for good and bad reasons. Fletcher meets Jess’s parents when he is at his grandmother’s house and they rush out to head to the hospital after hearing of their daughters attack to find that their car wouldn’t start. Fletcher steps in and takes them to the hospital and is horrified to hear what has happened.

Fletcher’s first glance of Jess is the day she is discharged from the hospital and when he ends up carrying her to bed as she almost passes out outside her parents house. He is instantly drawn to protecting her and he hasn’t even spoke to her. In the days after she consumes his thoughts and he constantly wonders how she is.

This book covers the topic of domestic abuse and it was handled perfectly. Karen Frances wrote it in a dual POV which led to knowing how Jess was feeling and the struggles she endured daily and also with Fletcher as they both grew closer how he responded to her insecurities. These scenes left me wanting to know more they were very emotional and reading how low Jess really felt was heartbreaking.

Fletcher and Jess grew close quickly and she felt safe with him. Fletcher adored Jess and all he wanted to do was protect her. For Jess entering in to a sexual relationship with Fletcher didn’t take that long considering what she had been through but that showed the kind of connection was between them. Although this couple are perfect for each other they both have a long way to go before they can be completely together.

This book covered some very heavy topics and alot of the scenes completely tore at my heart but then they was a whole different side of it too. This book had a romantic story of two people healing each other and falling in love quite quickly. It has scorching sex scenes, swoony moments and some funny parts too.

I truly enjoyed this book and I really can’t wait to read Play to Win…..

I give this book a 4.5 stars…..

There is a lingering in this part of the story because although they decide they can’t be together if none of them will make the move.  This is where we see that neither of them want to move on all they want is each other.
