Something So Perfect


Matthew

Drafted first round pick when I was seventeen, playing first line at eighteen, branded NHL's bad boy at nineteen. At twenty-three I was cut from the team and living back home with my parents. A knock on the door brought an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. All I had to do was prove I learned from my mistakes, so no way would I fall for a chick with a pouty mouth even if I wanted to spend all day devouring it.

Karrie

When my father gave me a job, I had no idea it would be to babysit some washed up NHL player. He wanted me to be his chaperone, his overpaid babysitter. I thought it was a joke. Then I met him, Matthew Grant. I wasn’t prepared for this particular bad boy. He’s not only hot but he’s arrogant and kinda sweet in a 'you make me crazy' kind of way.
Basically now that he’s finished screwing up his life, he’s decided to turn mine upside down.

She’s the first thing I’ve ever wanted more than hockey.

He’s the guy I know I should stay away from.

But what if this thing that started out so wrong turns into something so perfect?



"You, Karrie, you're my missing piece, the piece I need to live, the piece I need to breathe, the piece I need to go on."

Something So Perfect is a book I've been waiting for ever since I read Ms. Madison's Tempt The Boss. Even just the small glimpse of these characters that we got in that story had me dying to get more of them, and I was not disappointed.

Matthew Grant is a Hero that will have you ripping your own panties off, getting ready for him. He was such a sweet-talking, possessive Hero that was sexy as hell when he didn't let Karrie push him away. Living in such close quarters with the bosses daughter should have had him on his best behavior, instead he was as naughty as possible. I really liked seeing him fluster the usually in-charge Karrie, and when she started to open up for him it changed the whole dynamic of their relationship. 

Karrie was a great character to get to know, and I liked the strength she had. It made watching her and Michael together extremely entertaining because they constantly pushed against each other. The banter between them had me laughing out loud at most moments, and the other it had me fanning myself. They just had the perfect chemistry for a romance and I already know I'll be re-reading their book. 

Overall, this is a huge recommend from me. Though it's part of a series the book can definitely be read as a standalone since there isn't any hints about the previous books that will make you feel like you missed something. 


When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby delivers another sizzling novel in her delectable and sexy Fusion series.

Riley Gibson is over the moon at the prospect of having her restaurant, Seduction, on the Best Bites TV network. This could be the big break she’s been waiting for. But the idea of having an in-house show on a regular basis is a whole other matter. Their lives would be turned upside down, and convincing Mia, her best friend and head chef of Seduction, that having cameras in her kitchen every day is a good idea is daunting. Still, Riley knows it’s an opportunity she can’t afford to pass on. And when she meets Trevor Cooper, the show’s executive producer, she’s stunned by their intense chemistry.

Trevor’s sole intention is to persuade Riley to allow Best Bites TV to do a show on her restaurant. But when he walks into Riley’s office, he stops dead in his tracks. The professional, aloof woman on the phone is incredibly beautiful and funny. But can he convince her that he’s interested in Riley for himself?

Chapter 2
~Trevor~


I didn’t sleep worth shit last night. I waited for a response to my e-mail from Riley for a while; I’m not exactly sure why. I just don’t like the thought of her being embarrassed.

Because she has no reason to be. She didn’t know who I was, and it was closing time. She was venting to her friends.

It’s really no big deal.

Swink


Title: Swink
Author: Adriana Locke
Release Date: July 21st

I’m that guy.

Camilla Landry rustles against me, the silky fabric of her overpriced lingerie slipping along my bruised rib. The porcelain perfection of her skin is even more innocent against the colorful ink dotting my own. It’s demure meets damaged, pampered meets punctured. 

So, yeah, it’s obvious I’m that guy. Dominic Hughes. Her attempt at rebellion. Her bid to see what the other side of the tracks feel like. I’m okay with being used because, from where I’m sitting, the other side of the tracks have never looked so good.

“If I didn’t have to get up so damn early in the morning and head up north for a job, I’d be on my way over,” he promises.

Kiss My Boots


KISS MY BOOTS

By Harper Sloan

Release Day: August 29, 2017
In this second of the sultry, Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily-ever-after—but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots?

Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.

The only place Tate Montgomery ever truly felt at home growing up was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his Gram and Paw’s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start—but if he’s being entirely honest, he’s not just back for the wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend-turned-young-love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past; but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty he did his best to forget for him to realize just how much he’s been missing.




I have to say I was dying to read this book after the first which was so good as well. I really wanted Quinn's books I knew she was very sassy and so funny so I was super happy she was next. Even though I dying for Clay's book to. This author is one of my favourites and alway knows how to make u want more.

So this book is Quinn and Tate. Like I said Quinn is super sassy and so funny she as really kept her brothers on there toes she doesn't let them away with a thing. But her brothers mean the world to her after her mum leaving them when she was very young she as had to deal with a lot and she is still dealing. Tate didn't make things better she knew Tate years ago when he came to Pine Oaks to visit his grandparents in the summer so they got super close over the years. Things were goin great it was the best summer ever until Tate had to go. He made promises to her but never kept them and she didn't hear from him again until now. 

Tate is a great guy and very sexy doctor. Things have been goin ok for Tate but could be so much better. He as a good job but there was one thing that was missing in his life and after 9 years away it was time to get it back. He has stayed away long enough he can't do it anymore. 

My heart went out to these 2 in this book. There story is so good I enjoyed it so much. I m a sucker for a second chance romance. From page one I new I was goin to luv it. There was so many funny parts with nicknames for each other to names for cars and Quinn standing up to her brothers it was so funny and there was actually loads more. But there were so sad moments the things Quinn and Tate had to deal with was hard they just had to deal as best they could with what had happened. 

I would highly recommend this book. The first was good but I think book was even better and I know Clay's book is just goin to be as good I can't wait for that. I luvd everything about this book there is a great story that's flows well throughout. You have sexy cowboys and doctors also strong women how can put these alpha cowboys and doctor in there place. Which they do need it at times. Overall I just really enjoyed this and I m looking forward to more from this series and author.

After one too many head injuries, he’s off the circuit and in the horse farming business, something he’s never taken much of a shine to, but now that it’s his late father’s legacy, familial duty calls. How will Maverick find his way after the only dream he ever had for himself is over?

Enter Leighton Elizabeth James, an ugly duckling turned beauty from Maverick’s childhood—his younger sister’s best friend, to be exact, and someone whose heart he stomped all over when she confessed her crush to him ten years back. Now Leighton is back in Maverick’s life, no longer the insecure, love-stricken teen—and Maverick can’t help but take notice. Sparks fly between them, but will Leighton be able to open her heart to the one man who broke it all those years ago?

I had a really hard time trying to decide on a rating for this book and have been really conflicted about what to say. While I loved the mystery and intrigue of the story, I also felt like there was a lot of filler and parts that just weren't necessary. The book ends on yet another cliffhanger and I honestly don't think I really learned anything from this book. There were one or two big reveals but other than that I just feel like there is so much left to learn about these characters. I'm actually a little nervous for the next book since I don't want all the answers to just be crammed into the conclusion with little explanation.

Don't get me wrong, there was a lot I liked about this story, and that's why this review is so difficult. This book still had my attention from very early on and stole my breath on more than one occasion. I'm also really enjoying these characters, even though most of them are more than a little unhinged. It's that crazy aspect of the story that had me captivated and always wondering what was going to happen next.

Overall, this isn't my favorite book in the series but I still highly recommend that you pick up these books. The characters will have you wide-eyed and gripping your Kindle as you scream in your head "this can't be happening!" It will make you question everything and have you on the literal edge of your seat, trying to get closer to all the answers.

Keeping his eyes on mine, he calls to the barman. “Two tequilas, please.”

“Tequila,” I muse, looking over my shoulder when the salt and lemon land behind me. “Is that my challenge?”

“Crying off?” he goads, reaching into his pocket and pulling out some notes.

“Never,” I scoff, turning into the bar. I don’t know what his game is, but I want to play. With him. “You’re asking me to prove I’m sober by doing a shot?” I narrow my eyes on him, teasing. “Or is your plan to get me drunk and take advantage of me?”

What if you had everything in the world you wanted…except the man you’d left behind?
Jackson Davenport, the charismatic, strait-laced heir to the Davenport fortune, has a secret. One he’s been hiding since he graduated from South Haven all-boys academy—and that secret’s name is Lucas.
When a work trip takes Jackson back to his old stomping grounds, memories of the year he shared with Lucas come crashing to the surface. With growing pressure from his father to settle down and take over the family business, Jackson knows he’s on borrowed time, and sets out to find the free-spirited daredevil he once knew.
But Lucas isn’t the same man he was eight years ago.
One night. A shattered heart. And an endless parade of nameless faces. Lucas Sullivan is South Haven’s ultimate playboy, a reputation he’s honed since the only boy he ever loved left without a trace. To the world, he’s brash and confident, an in-demand artist who spends his days designing one-of-a-kind pieces and his nights as king of the downtown scene.
Many have tried and failed to get past the barrier he’s carefully constructed, but it’s the shy, studious boy he once coaxed out of his shell who still haunts him.
Maybe it was a mistake. Maybe it was lust. Or maybe…it was a little bit like love.

Series: Checkmate Duet Series (Logan & Kayla, #1)
Author: Kennedy Fox
Designer & Photographer: Sara Eirew
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Trope: Second-Chance Romance
Release Date: July 6, 2017


Introducing book 1 in the Logan & Kayla saga of the Checkmate series from a secret duo of romance authors who teamed up under the USA Today Bestselling pseudonym, Kennedy Fox! This second-chance romance will have you gasping and cheering this two on from the first to the last page! Are you ready to play the final game?

***
Logan Knight is a real life knight in shining armor.

A detective godsend in a sleek black suit has me thinking less than secretive thoughts. Brooding and mysterious, he’s the kind of guy every girl instantly notices. Between his seductive smirk and charming good looks, it’s no wonder I can’t help the way he makes me feel whenever I’m near him.

Too bad he’s unavailable—or so he says.

He thinks I’m a do-gooder who shouldn’t get involved with a guy like him. His past is messy and relationships just add to that. He insists the timing is all wrong and he’s devoted to his career, but I don’t buy that excuse for a second. I see the way his body tenses and his jaw ticks every time another guy is around me. He just won’t admit it, but I’m more determined than ever to show him what he’s missing.

I’m a devoted animal rescuer and I’ll risk everything to save them, but when a dramatic turn of events puts both our lives at risk, I’m positive Logan will write me off for good. But when he asks for my help with a personal crisis, I know it’s my last chance to finally show him I can handle anything he throws my way—messy past and all.

He might think he has me all figured out, but I’ll prove him wrong no matter what he thinks. This game of push and pull has me running in circles. One wrong move and we could both lose.

Checkmate, Knight.
