Recently finished:

I have been reading like crazy this week. Part of that was due to a train trip I took from Tacoma, WA to Portland, OR. I had 3 and a half hours to read on the trip both ways. Plus, my train home was delayed 2 hours so I read then, too.

Glens Falls: Book Two
This Adventure Ends
The Summer Games: Settling the Score
The Summer Games: Out of Bounds

From the New York Times Bestselling author of MISTER O and BIG ROCK, comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy…

I’ve been told I have quite a gift.

Hey, I don’t just mean in my pants. I’ve got a big brain too, and a huge heart of gold. And I like to use all my gifts to the fullest, the package included. Life is smooth sailing….

Until I find myself stuck between a rock and a sexy roommate, which makes for one very hard…place.

Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love. So even if I have to shack up with my buddy’s smoking hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do.

I can resist Josie. I’m disciplined, I’m focused, and I keep my hands to myself, even in the mere five-hundred square feet we share. Until the one night she insists on sliding under the covers with me. It’ll help her sleep after what happened that day, she says.

Surprise—neither one of us sleeps.

And even though we agree to return to roomies-without-benefits, I quickly realize I want more than someone to split the utilities with. Now all I want is to spend every night—and every day—with my gorgeous roommate.

Did I mention she’s also one of my best friends? That she’s brilliant, beautiful and a total firecracker? Guess that makes her the full package too.

What’s a man stuck in a hard place to do?

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00023]

 

Let’s be honest, ladies. A good man is a lot like the perfect car. You want a hot body, an engine that purrs, and superior performance under the hood. You probably also crave a ride that can go all night long.

I’m at your service. Come and ride on my Joy Stick…

That’s what I like to say to the ladies. Or I would if I were total pig. It’s far too easy in this world to strut around like a peacock when you’ve got all these other features in your favor. But just like the custom cars I build with class and sophistication, that’s how I treat my women.

Don’t worry. I absolutely do my best work dirty…both in the shop, and between the sheets. Work and play — that’s what my life has been, and I f&*king love it. I’m completely, 100% driven. Until one woman comes along and throws a wrench in my plans. The one woman I should absolutely, positively never take for a joy ride.

Now that’s all I want to do with her…she’s so far off-limits, but that’s exactly where I want to go with her.

Get ready for a wild ride…

Review: Wrong Question, Right Answer by Elle Casey

Wrong Question, Right Answer
Series: 
The Bourbon Street Boys, #3
Author: Elle Casey
Publication Date: August 23, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense
Note: I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

Synopsis:

As a member of the Bourbon Street Boys private security firm, Antoinette “Toni” Delacourte is one strong woman, but despite her reputation for being tough as nails, she is haunted by her past mistakes. Now they’re catching up to her, and throwing her for a loop.

Ten years ago, Toni kissed Lucky, her brother’s best friend. Worried it would break apart the group she’d come to see as family, she walked away—straight into the arms of Charlie, and an abusive relationship.

For the past decade she’s tried to keep her feelings for Lucky platonic—he’s her friend, her colleague, and he’s got his own past to deal with. Free of Charlie but unable to shake his memory, Toni finds herself feeling vulnerable and unable to deny her attraction to Lucky any longer.

She’s always thought that kiss was her first mistake, but now she’s wondering whether the real mistake was running away.


Toni’s story is the one I’ve been most interested in reading since I began reading The Bourbon Street Boys series. Her dark history combined with her bad attitude and kick ass ways have made her an exciting character to read about. I was happy to finally get her story and even happier that it involved Lucky.

As teenagers, Toni and Lucky shared one kiss. Since then, they have been avoiding their feelings for each other. When a drunken night has them reenacting their first and only kiss, they find their attraction to each other has not disappeared over the years. It’s gotten even more intense. Toni knows she doesn’t deserve Lucky, so she does everything she can think of to push him away. Lucky isn’t one to back down from a challenge, though. He’s going to do everything he can to prove to Toni that she is everything he wants.

Honestly, I thought Elle Casey came up with the perfect situation for Toni and Lucky. She brought them closer together in a fun way. Toni wasn’t prepared for her feelings or relationship with Lucky. It brought out her vulnerable side. The confusion and anger she felt created a humorous storyline. It also showed what a strong, amazing character Lucky was. I loved the way their story played out.

Wrong Question, Right Answer was a great addition to The Bourbon Street Boys series. I can’t wait to see what Elle Casey has in store for the next book in the series. I’m really hoping it’s Toni’s brother Thibault’s story.

Review: ’89 Walls by Katie Pierson

’89 Walls
Author: 
Katie Pierson
Publication Date: June 5, 2015
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance, Historical Fiction
Note: I received this book from the author via Goodreads in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

Synopsis:

College is not in the cards for Seth. He spends his minimum wage on groceries and fakes happiness to distract his mom from the MS they both know will kill her. It’s agony to carry around a frayed love note for a girl who’s both out of his league and beneath his dignity.

Quinn’s finishing high school on top. But that cynical, liberal guy in her social studies class makes her doubt her old assumptions. Challenging the rules now, though, would a) squander her last summer at home, b) antagonize her conservative dad, and c) make her a hypocrite.

Seth and Quinn’s passionate new romance takes them both by surprise. They keep it a secret: it’s too early to make plans and too late not to care. But it’s 1989. As politics suddenly get personal, they find themselves fighting bare-fisted for their beliefs—and each other—in the clear light of day.


’89 Walls is kind of a hard book to review. It’s categorized as YA, but so much of the story screamed adult fiction to me. Maybe I’m wrong, but I think the multitude historical references may be off-putting to some young adults looking for a coming of age contemporary romance. I grew up in the 80’s and even I found myself overwhelmed by the multitude of historical references peppered throughout the book. They set the timeline and political nature of the characters, but distracted from my emotional connection to the story.

That being said, Katie Pierson’s writing is very good. I never would have guessed this was her début novel. I applaud the way she dealt with some very tough political, social and personal issues. She didn’t shy away from anything.

My favorite thing about ’89 Walls were the relationships between all of the characters. Seth and Quinn had a deep connection for a couple of teenagers on the verge of adulthood. I loved that each stood their ground on their beliefs, but were willing to learn, grow and possibly change their minds. Their relationship wasn’t without turmoil, but the outcome of their problems made them stronger together and apart.

The story wasn’t just about Seth and Quinn’s relationship, though. It also focused on their relationships with their respective parents. Both were close to their parents and wanted to make them happy, but it wasn’t always possible. Seth and Quinn were fighting for their adulthood and freedom to make important choices in their lives. I loved they way they discovered how to balance their need for independence with their desires to make their parents proud.

Overall, ’89 Walls was a strong début novel. It’s filled with both political and emotional gems. I think readers who were teenagers in the late 1980’s will love and identify with the story.

Review: What’s Left of Me by Jennifer Loring

What’s Left of Me
Series:
The Firebird Trilogy, #2
Author: Jennifer Loring
Publication Date: July 26, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Sports Romance
Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

Recovering from years of living the superstar hockey life wasn’t easy, but now Aleksandr Volynsky finally has everything…

He’s married to the love of his life, expecting a daughter, and has a new job as an assistant coach with his old team, the Buffalo Gladiators. His happiness is short lived, however, when a sexual assault allegation surfaces, and Alex is forced to cooperate with an investigation for a crime he didn’t commit.

Stephanie Hartwell is juggling her dream job with marriage and motherhood, but she’s not convinced she’s doing any of it well…

Stephanie’s stress level goes from bad to worse when she’s diagnosed with a serious illness. Battling declining health and the critics who question her commitment to Alex in light of the allegation, she makes a decision that could change their relationship forever.

Alex is afraid he’s about to lose everything—especially when he sees Stephanie’s friend kiss her…

Devastated that his life is spiraling out of control again, Alex turns to his friend, Natasha, a Russian pop star. Convinced that Stephanie and her friend Brandon are having an affair, Alex resumes his self-destructive behavior.

What Alex doesn’t know is Stephanie has been conducting a secret investigation of her own. She learns the truth behind the sexual assault—a truth no one, especially Alex, expects.

With everything now out in the open, can Stephanie and Alex commit to a fresh start for the sake of their daughter, or will the ghosts of their pasts finally tear apart everything they have left?


This is probably bad to admit, but I could almost just copy and paste my review from Firebird (The Firebird Trilogy, #1) in and call it good. While the story in What’s Left of Me is different than that in the first book, the characters are exactly how I remember them. And that’s a great thing!

What’s Left of Me picks up not too far from where Firebird left off. Stephanie and Alex have finally found their happily ever after with each other, but sadly, it doesn’t last long. Both are under serious stress. Stephanie and Alex are coping with a rape scandal against Alex. It drives a wedge between them that is further widened by the lack of trust they still have in each other and a health scare for Stephanie. The rift between them causes both of them to spiral out of control.

What’s Left of Me was another amazing story that was constantly building. What stood out to me the most about it was the all of the drama in the story. I was completely sucked into it. There were so many raw moments. The characters went through so many real life situations. New struggles were constantly popping up, the way they do sometimes in life, and they just couldn’t catch a break. Their reactions and emotions were honest and relatable.

I continued to love the hotheaded jerk that Aleksandr was. He may not have always handled things well or appropriately, but he loved his girls fiercely. He would have done anything for them.

Stephanie still drove me nuts. She made some tough decisions that I didn’t agree with, but I couldn’t fault her for them. I understood why she needed to do the things she did. But, in the end, I loved what her influence did for Alex.

I absolutely loved the journey this book took me on. It was filled with so many ups and downs, but I couldn’t have been happier with the end. I would highly recommend What’s Left of Me — just make sure to read Firebird first so you don’t miss out on the beginning of Aleksandr and Stephanie’s love story!

Review: Forbidden Fling by Skye Jordan

Forbidden Fling
Series:
Wildwood, #1
Author: Skye Jordan
Publication Date: July 26, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Note: I received this book from Amazon Publishing via Goodreads in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ .5

Synopsis:

Delaney Hart has come a long way from her wild youth, dating tattooed bikers at her father’s bar, The Bad Seed. But when his death pulls her back to Wildwood, California, she must stay to renovate the dive he left her. And also face the lies and secrets that sent her running ten years before.

When Wildwood’s chief building inspector, Ethan Hayes, shows up on the property, Delaney doesn’t recognize him. The last thing he wants to do is save the bar where his cousin died in a brawl. But the good boy from her past is all too willing to remind her of the bad girl she used to be. And one night of passion leaves them both in a compromising position.

The last place Ethan should be is in Delaney’s bed. Guilt, family pressure, and plans for a brewpub of his own make shutting down The Bad Seed his top priority…until his feelings for Delaney interfere. Because her future depends on the success of the bar’s renovation and his dreams are rooted in its failure, their forbidden romance may be destined for heartbreak.


I was very pleased with Forbidden Fling. It’s the first book I’ve read by Skye Jordan and I wasn’t sure what to expect. So many Contemporary Romances resemble each other. It’s sometimes hard to tell them apart. Forbidden Fling was one that stood out from the crowd. The fast-paced story was beautifully written and exciting to read. I loved all the issues the history of Wildwood’s families created.

Forbidden Fling was a forbidden romance. It centers around the small town of Wildwood and family histories of its inhabitants. Delaney and Ethan should hate each other based on one horrible incident in their pasts, but one glorious night together makes that impossible. No matter how many reasons there are to stay away from each other, they can’t fight their growing attraction.

The characters in Forbidden Fling were so well thought out. I loved Delaney and Ethan. Their chemistry was off the charts sexy, and they had such a sweet relationship. But what I loved just as much were all the supporting characters. They added so much to the story! Ethan’s entire scandalous family made the story so much more interesting! For once, it wasn’t the love story that drove me to read the book, but what was going on all around it. I loved it!

My only little complaint about the story was how quickly it wrapped up at the end. I was surprised when it ended. I expected a little more of what the future entailed for Delaney and Ethan. Although, I do have a feeling I’ll get to see more of them in book 2!

Forbidden Fling was a wonderful Contemporary Romance. I would highly recommend it to Contemporary Romance readers who love a great story combined with sensual scenes.

SYNOPSIS:

Hockey’s most eligible bachelor must run interference to get the one girl he can’t have.

Sydney:
I’d never even heard of Caleb Prescott, God’s gift to hockey. Who watches hockey anyways? Not me, I’m too busy with college and work. My part-time just for fun job has now asked me to recruit this player for a new dating show. Sounds easy enough. . .until he insists I become part of the show.

Caleb:
I only agreed to compete on the dating show to get closer to Sydney—the redhead pixie I’d do anything to see again. But unlike the women competing for my affection, or the puck bunnies desperate for my attention, Sydney isn’t impressed by my hockey skills. I never miss a shot, I don’t care if she calls interference, I’ll do anything to win her heart.

goodreads-badge-add-38pxREVIEW:

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

I have to admit Interference caught my eye with two words in its synopsis: hockey player. I cannot resist a romance with a hockey player as one of the main characters. Hockey romances are one of my favorites! That’s pretty funny considering I don’t even follow hockey, but there’s just something about them.

Interference was different from other hockey romances I’ve read. Instead of revolving around a college or professional hockey season setting, it took place in the off-season. There weren’t really any game scenes. The book mostly took place on a cruise ship. I’ve only read a couple of other books taking place on a cruise ship and Interference was by far my favorite. I think that was because of another super fun aspect of the book — the reality TV show.

Caleb, a famous hockey player, was approached by casting assistant Sydney to star in a new reality dating T.V. show. Caleb’s not really interested in participating or finding the perfect mate, but he finds himself unable to say no to Sydney. There’s something about the petite redhead that does something to him.

The more Caleb gets to know Sydney, the more he doesn’t want to do the reality show. But with no other choice, he’s forced to “date” all of the women Sydney chose for him that are supposed to be “his type”.

I absolutely loved the reality show aspect of this book and how it shaped Sydney and Caleb’s relationship. It added a humorous aspect and I loved how it painted the world of reality dating shows. I could imagine this whole scenario taking place in real life. There were so many barriers to them having a long-term relationship. I loved all the drama that came with the reality dating show.

Caleb was a fun male love interest. Not only was he a sexy hockey star, but he was a good guy. He was nice and respectful. I loved his close family dynamic. It totally cemented his good guy status. Sydney was also a great character. She was a career driven women who was both smart and beautiful.

Caleb and Sydney’s relationship was so much fun to watch unfold.The only thing that bugged me a bit about their romance was the amount of insta-love in the beginning. It was a little hard to believe that Caleb and Sydney would be so connected to each other after a week. The author tried to dispel my disbelief of the situation with a great point by Caleb’s dad, but it still seemed a little out there to me.

Interference was a really fun contemporary romance. It had three things I love in a love story: a hockey player, a cute romance and an interesting plot. I would highly recommend it to contemporary romance readers. It would be a great book to end your summer vacation with.

Interference Teaser 2

EXCERPT:

Caleb

As she was about to rush into explaining when I would board the cruise-liner, as if I had agreed to it, I held up my hand. “Miss Meadows.” God that sounded too formal for a woman like her. “Sydney,” I tried again, definitely preferring the taste of it on my tongue. “How about we meet over coffee or something tomorrow? Ten?”

Her eyes widened slightly, just briefly, before she nodded with a fixed smile in place. “Of course. Yes, that will give you more time to let it sink in. So long as you agree to—”

I cut her off with a grin. While yes, this show was against everything I had ever thought for myself, I had a feeling that sitting with Sydney and talking to her about the show, as if I were agreeing to it, would be the only time I’d see this gorgeous redhead again. I didn’t quite know what was drawing me to this short pixie of a woman, but I definitely wanted to see her again. Tomorrow I’d have no time constraints and she could talk all she wanted.

But before I realized the words were out of my mouth though, I said, “I’ll do it,” agreeing to her pitch.

Shit. Fuck.

The smile filling her face wasn’t one I was about to take away, and her amber eyes danced, lightening just slightly to bring out fiery red specks. “We can discuss contestants tomorrow then. Wonderful. Oh, great!”

I had to swallow a chuckle at her obvious excitement. We agreed on a place to meet and I watched her leave out of the corner of my eye while heading toward the ice.

Like I said, I liked her ass.

ABOUT MIGNON MYKEL

Mignon Mykel

Mignon is a twenty-something (…getting awfully close to thirty-something) who resides in Wisconsin. An avid reader since her preschool days, she ‘blames’ her mother for teaching her to read during that all-important time during a forming brain. Some of her earlier memories of reading include her mother buying her a book at the mall — and finishing the book before they even returned home.

Writing happened soon after the reading started. Her first writing piece can be found in a box of other important papers from growing up. It’s about an apple who was her friend, but she had to eat.

The first series Mignon started to write was about a close family of one brother and his three younger sisters. She started writing this family and their friends in 2005, but as soon as the Prescott family took over her mind, the Ashbys fell silent. Maybe someday we’ll all hear from the Ashbys, but those Prescotts…. The Prescotts are excited to have their stories told.

Review: Tapping the Billionaire by Max Monroe

Tapping the Billionaire
Series:
Billionaire Bad Boys, #1
Author: Max Monroe
Publication Date: April 26, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Humor

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

Blind dates? Online dating profiles? Been there, done that.

Georgia Cummings has zero luck with dating, and the era of the internet is not her friend.
No matter how fast she runs, how many corners she turns, she can’t find her way out of this weird, alternate universe where men think dick pics are a replacement for small talk and getting to know a girl. One more crotch selfie and she might write men off for good…

But why can’t she stop fantasizing about him?

Kline Brooks is the quintessential billionaire bad boy—dark, styled, short hair, muscles for days, and a panty-dropping smile.
Except—he isn’t.

As his employee, he won’t touch her with a ten foot pole.
But she won’t touch him either.

Too bad their hormones missed the memo.


Tapping the Billionaire is one of those books you pick up when you’re looking for a laugh or a good time. It was so hilarious. I can’t tell you how many times I found myself giggling!

Not only was it funny, but it had wonderful characters and a sweet love story. I loved the way neither Georgia or Kline saw their attraction to each other coming. The more they got to know each other and the more the closer they came, the more I fell in love with them both.

I couldn’t put down Tapping the Billionaire. I loved each and every moment I spent with it. It was everything I love in a contemporary romance. Tapping the Billionaire was sexy, funny and heart warming. It’s a book I’ll be telling all my romance loving friends to read.
