MY REVIEW

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ½
Note: I received an ARC from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an unbiased review.

I’ve been eagerly anticipating Guy Hater since I read the first book in the series. I wanted to get to know Nick’s older brothers better. Their owning a trendy bar together and having so many cool things about it made for an amazing setting. I couldn’t wait to be back in that world.

Which makes me a little sad to say I didn’t absolutely love this book. It was a fun, quick read. I had a fun time reading it. There was just one major problem with it for me: a love triangle. Well, not exactly a love triangle, but Frank was already in a long-term relationship. He wasn’t happy, but I still didn’t love the fact that meeting another woman was what sparked him into break up action. I understood Frank’s situation and even could even sympathize with him, but I still didn’t like it. I wished he would have been free and clear before beginning even a friendship with Claudia. He was supposed to be such a good guy, and the way he handled it all didn’t say “good guy” to me.

Claudia was a cool chick. I felt bad for her at the beginning of the book. I could see the let down coming for her, and it made me sad for her. I loved the way she handled the entire thing. Her forgiveness was hers to give, and I like that she didn’t take it lightly. Claudia had a backbone and wanted to do the right thing. I am so happy J. Sterling gave her those characteristics.

Despite Frank being an idiot for half the story, I still loved the connection between Frank and Claudia. They had great chemistry. You could feel their attraction and the way they got each other immediately. The relationship they began to build felt strong and right.

Another thing I really loved the camaraderie between friends and brothers in Guy Hater. Claudia and her roommate had a fun relationship, but they were also there for each other when they really needed it. The same can be said for Frank and his brothers. I loved that they helped talk some sense into him.

Overall, Guy Hater was a good read. I loved being back in the Fisher brothers’ world. I can’t wait to see what’s next for the last brother to find love, Ryan. I know his story is going to be epic.

About the Author

I got fired from my last job.

It’s true.

I know you’re sitting there thinking, “Jenn, how could anyone in their right mind fire someone like you?” And I’d love to give you a good reason, but the truth is that sometimes being all sorts of awesome isn’t fun for other people. They don’t always tend to like it. lol

So I picked my pride off the floor, bought a laptop and started writing my first book. And you know what I realized? Writing stories that meant something to me was a million times better than working my ass off for someone who didn’t really care about anything other than the bottom line.

My soul has never felt more satisfied.
My heart has never been more full.
I’ve never worked so hard in my life, but I love every second of it. I truly do.
It is SO worth it.
All of it.
Every moment.

The journey it took to get to this point- I wouldn’t change a thing.

Review: Always You by Denise Grover Swank

Always You
Series: Bachelor Brotherhood, #3

Synopsis:

Matt Osborne had always planned to get married and have a family. But at thirty-four, he’s no closer to his goal, so he’s decided to embrace his role as the remaining member of the Bachelor Brotherhood. He’s only loved one woman-his college sweetheart-but she never shared his dream of a family, preferring to focus on her career and maybe get married someday. With neither budged on their decisions, they agreed it was best to part ways. Now nearly twelve years later, Matt is stunned when Anna shows up at his nephew’s soccer practice-with her five-year-old son in tow.

Single mother Anna Field has returned home to care for her widowed and ill father. She never thought she’d run into Matt during the six months she’s there, but now he’s the coach of her son’s soccer team. She’d move Toby to a different team, but his new best friend happens to be Matt’s nephew, Ethan. As Anna and Matt spend more time together, the realize that their attraction-and love-are still there, just waiting for a spark to reignite. And once it’s lit, Matt has no plans to let her go again.


Always You was just too cute! Matt and Anna were college sweethearts. When graduation time came, Matt was ready to settle down with Anna. Anna, unfortunately, had a job opportunity in London. Both were devastated by their break up. Flash forward twelve years, and Matt’s a single “dad” and soccer coach to his nephew. When Anna’s son ends up being Matt’s nephew’s new best friend and on their soccer team, Matt and Anna has to deal with seeing each other again after all those years.

Matt Osborne was the star of this book. He was such a stand up guy, and an all around great human being. I appreciated the lengths he would go to in order to make life easier for his nephew. I also appreciated the way he dealt with Anna’s son. I think I enjoyed his character so much because his parenting skills reminded me of my husband’s.

Anna was a great character, too. She was a single mom who had been through some rough times, but made the best out of everything. I loved how she loved her son. She and Matt had a lot in common when it came to parenting. They also brightened up each other’s days.

My favorite part of this book had to be the Chuck E. Cheese scene. Chuck E. Cheese is out of my parenting nightmares. I just can’t handle it. Always You didn’t make me want to go there (The characters didn’t even want to go there), but it did bring me to laugh my head off. Just that scene would have made reading this book worth it if I hadn’t liked it.

The one thing I would have changed about Always You if I wrote it was how quickly Matt and Anna were back together. It seemed very rushed to me. I would have liked more time for them to figure out where they stood as a couple together and on their own.

Always You was a great ending to the Bachelor Brotherhood series. This second chance romance had sparks flying everywhere.

Review: Play Dates by Maggie Wells

Rating: ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

For single parents, life is often more diapers and daycare dilemmas than dating. But for three dads going solo, a little flirting can lead to a whole lot more than a fling . . .

Colm Cleary lost his wife just moments after his son Aiden’s birth, and it’s been just the two of them ever since. Dating is his very last priority—until he spots gorgeous Monica Rayburn on the playground with her little girl. Suddenly finding a woman sympathetic to the demands of single parenthood seems like a great idea—especially if they agree to a no-pressure, no-strings date . . .

Dazzled by the hot “Saturdaddy” who asks her out, Monica doesn’t get around to mentioning that little Emma is her niece. She’s in commodities, not children. A gambler to the bone, she’s going to take a chance on an adult evening with Colm—and worry about the details later. But when their casual connection deepens into something more solid, the truth will have to come out—and both Colm and Monica will have to throw caution to the wind to hold on to a future together . . .


Play Dates is a book I liked but didn’t love. It started out really cute. I loved the way Monica met Colm. The kids were stinking cute. The friendship between the Saturdaddies was awesome. I even loved the mistaken identity thing at first. Then, Monica’s lies of omission started to grate on me. I was in Monica’s sister Melody’s camp. Why not just tell the truth. It was all so dumb, and it made me not like Monica at all.

I think my biggest problem with the book, though, was the fact that everything felt like it was on the surface. Things didn’t really get very deep between Monica and Colm. I didn’t understand how quickly they fell in love because neither of them really knew it each other. It was more of a sex thing. I wanted to know more about them and their pasts.

Play Dates had the potential to be a five star read. It was an entertaining read and the writing was good. I just needed a little more from it.

Synopsis:

He’s got every reason to be cocky . . . until a female cuts him down to size.

I’m Dallas Easton, the best goaltender in the league. I make a damn good living playing hockey, and with women falling at my feet wherever I go, why not enjoy it? I get whatever I want, whenever I want—that is, until I come across the one player who gets the best of me on the ice.

When I try to pummel the dude, all hell breaks loose. Imagine my surprise when the helmet comes off to reveal a woman underneath. And not just any woman, but the sexiest woman I’ve ever seen. Callie Davis is the complete opposite of the puck bunnies I usually go for, a good girl with sick moves and a selfless streak a mile wide. I need to make amends, but she dodges me at every turn. It doesn’t help that Callie’s brother hates my guts, or that my agent thinks she’s bad for my career.

But I could care less what they think. I can’t let our little run-in on the ice be the end of our story. Because when I set my sights on something, I won’t rest until I score.


Blocked has been on my radar since I finished reading the first book in the Breakaway series, Hard Stick. I really liked Kellan’s teammate and friend, Dallas. I was excited that he was getting his own book.

Unfortunately, Dallas wasn’t the man I remembered from Hard Stick. Maybe it’s my poor memory, but I don’t remember him being such a jerk. It wasn’t his womanizing way that was the problem. It was his overall attitude. He was portrayed to be a hotheaded jerk who didn’t get along with his teammates. I hated him for the first part of the book. Then, he’s trying to redeem himself to Callie and it was like his whole personality changed. I had a hard time reconciling the two sides of Dallas.

Callie was an easy character to like. She was smart and knew exactly how to keep Dallas on his toes. I loved the little “tests” or pranks she played on him. I also liked that she had a close relationship with her brothers. They didn’t like Dallas and it made the story very entertaining.

One thing I thought Blocked was missing was drama. There was one big dramatic moment, but it fell a little flat for me. I just didn’t envision Callie responding the way she did. She seemed like an open and honest person who would let someone explain themselves before completely flipping out.

Overall, Blocked was an entertaining read. I still liked L.P. Dover’s writing style, and she made me excited for both Lacey and Maddox’s story and Justin’s. I can’t decide whose I’d like to read first!

On the streets of New Orleans, sins are committed every night.

My name is Jett Colby and I save tarnished souls.

In the downtown, under the glittery lights of Bourbon Street, I found her in cheap lingerie, flaunting her body for callous men and money.

From the lace of her cheap lingerie, to her garter belt, I knew she had to be saved.
She had to be mine.

Broke and destitute with no way of out, she had no choice but to come to me and into my club.

She had no other choice but to become a Jett Girl.

But see, that’s the thing about this city; you might think that under the dazzling lights and illusion of salvation, she’s the one that needed saving.

When the glitter fades and the dirt is washed away, the one worth saving just might be me.

My Review

Rating: ★ ★ ★
Note: I received an ARC from Wordsmith Publicity in exchange for an unbiased review.

If you’ve read my blog in the past year, you know what a big Meghan Quinn fan I am. The lady can do rom-com like no other. She makes me laugh constantly with her wit. I always wonder where she comes up the amazing things she does. I love her books SO much. That is why I decided to sign up to review her erotic rom-com novel Bourbon Sins even though I’m not normally an erotica reader. If this book was as funny as the rest of the ones I had read, the erotica wouldn’t be too much for me.

Bourbon Sins had a hint of the Meghan Quinn writing I have come to love, but the story didn’t hit me right. I didn’t fall in love with the characters and their story the way I wanted to. The only reason I can pin point is that Bourbon Sins felt a little cliché. A billionaire sweeps a down on her luck girl off the streets to better herself. In this version, Goldie has the opportunity to leave her crappy strip club waitress job behind to work at Jett’s super classy strip club where everything is hands off. The only stipulation is that Goldie belongs to Jett now.

The whole scenario didn’t completely work for me. I wasn’t a fan of Jett’s connection to the other Jett girls no matter how superficial it was. I also didn’t like his best friend, Kase, and how he was around Goldie. His involvement felt like a love triangle. Combined with the other Jett girls, it pulled the focus too far from Jett and Goldie for me. I guess I wanted a simpler romance and connection between them.

I don’t mean for this review to sound entirely negative. There were some things I did enjoy about Bourbon Sins. I liked Jett and Goldie’s pasts. I would have liked to get to know the pasts on some of the other characters, too. I also liked the connection between Jett and Goldie. I felt the bond they had. My favorite parts of this book were their moments together when they were getting to know each other. I enjoyed the story more toward the end of the book.Oh! I can’t leave out the humor. Meghan Quinn made me laugh like always.

When it comes down to it, I appreciated that Meghan Quinn brought the rom-com to erotica. Bourbon Sins probably just wasn’t my thing. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I was a big billionaire erotica fan.

The walls of my club hold many secrets. Depravity. Sin. Justice.

Come in; debauchery can be yours for the cost of a lap dance and a night of pleasure.
And I own every last part of it.
But she’s my weakness, and thankfully she followed me through the insolvent streets of New Orleans, giving me her loyalty and her heart.
My desire for her dominates my every thought, but my broken past could destroy us.
There are people trying to bring me down.
Two malicious men stand in the way of what I want: to own it all.
It’s either Lot 17 or Goldie, my Jett Girl.
I have to make a choice and for once, it won’t be easy.

Under the neon lights of Bourbon, money is everything.
Justice, faith, and power. They’re the key to my empire and she holds them all in the palm of her hand. Falling for her was a mistake; she stole my heart and consumed me. I was addicted, and she left me weak and vulnerable to my enemies.
They’re everywhere.
Now she’s gone, turning to my enemy’s business partner; the man I’ve hated my entire life. She said she’s protecting me. She said it won’t be forever.
But how can I believe her?
Lies, deceit and deception. They’re the sins driving us apart.
In a city that never sleeps—in a place where scandal hides behind every dark corner, my Jett girl might never be mine again.

Every choice you make in life comes with a consequence.

I was once on top, I was the professional boxer to be afraid of. I had everything I could possibly hope for. I was happy, satisfied, content . . . until one night.

One off day.

One wrong reaction.

I killed a man. The sound, the blood, the stagnant air, it’s forever imprinted in my mind and now dictates the way I live my life.

Desolate with nothing but my penance to pay, I didn’t expect to have my world flipped upside down when Lyla seductively strutted into my life.

I want her. I need her. I crave her.

But I don’t deserve her.

People like to celebrate the day they were born, I like to celebrate the day my soul died.

This is my story of repentance.

Review: Legs by Kelly Siskind

Title: Legs
Series: One Wild Wish #1
Author: Kelly Siskind
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Published: September 27, 2017
Running into your one-night stand is a special kind of awkward. Competing against him in a wine tasting contest is delicious torment…

On Rachel’s twenty-seventh birthday, she wishes to finally find a rewarding job. What she doesn’t wish is to drink a boatload of wine, sleep with a tattooed bad boy, and drunk email her boss in one glorious, career-ending move. But the fiasco pushes her to pursue a career inspired by her late father’s love of wine: sommelier. 

Unfortunately, she’s competing against her infuriating one-night stand, a man as intoxicating as a Pinot Noir.

Two years ago, Jimmy was set to inherit his family winery. Then it got ripped from his grasp. To close that dark chapter of his life, he plans to win a local sommelier contest and use the press to expose his family’s tainted wines. 

Jimmy loves studying the streaks of alcohol that cling to a wineglass, known as the wine’s “legs,” but other shapely legs are stealing his focus. Tantalizing legs. Legs that had wrapped around his waist for one wild night. Jimmy, sadly, has a weakness for legs. 

He also hates to lose.
LEGS is a full-length, standalone Smart, Sexy Romantic Comedy with a swoony Happily Ever After. No cheating or cliff-hangers here! Perfect for fans of Christina Lauren, Avery Flynn, Alice Clayton, Emma Chase, and Lauren Blakely.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ½
Note: I received an ARC from Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an unbiased review.

I was so, so excited when I heard Kelly Siskind was coming out with a new book. I adored her Over the Top series, and couldn’t wait to get more of her writing. I knew Legs would be an exciting start to a new series. I was right.

After several failed attempts at finding her place in the workplace, Rachel feels out of sorts. She hates being a failure in her mother’s eyes. Jimmy thought he knew what he wanted out of life, but an ultimatum changed his life two years ago. Now, he’s biding his time figuring out who he is, what he wants and how to achieve it. A nameless one-night stand connects Rachel and Jimmy together. They have no plans to ever see each other again, but winding up in the same competition competing for the same job reminds of them of how good they could be together.

Legs was a humorous contemporary romance that went beyond simply falling in love. It was all about the characters finding themselves. Rachel really needed help in this area. She was so focused on what others wanted, she didn’t put enough thought into who she was and what she wanted. Jimmy helped bring out that side in her. Rachel also helped Jimmy. She inspired him to deal with his past and come to terms with his relationship with his family. I loved how Rachel and Jimmy were better people because of each other. I also loved how they supported each other in all obstacles.

Another thing I really liked about Legs were the side characters. I adored Rachel’s best friends. I didn’t get to see much of Jimmy’s, but I also liked what I saw of them. I am so excited that this is a series and that Kelly Siskind is going to tie Rachel and Jimmy’s friends together. I can’t wait for the next book!

I also can’t leave out how much I loved learning about wine from this book. I wasn’t sure how the title fit in when I originally started reading. I had no idea that wine had legs. Heck, I had no idea about any of the wine stuff I learned. (Probably because I’m not a big wine connoisseur.)

Overall, Legs was an incredibly fun read. The romance was sweet and the dialog was filled with witty banter. I laughed and swooned so much. I highly recommend it to readers who enjoy romantic comedy.


Rachel settled onto the stool beside me, her spine ramrod straight. She tucked her elbows to her sides. Not exactly relaxed.

A drink could help. “What’s your poison?”

“Apparently dangerous men I don’t know, but I’ll have a glass of the Lynmar Pinot.”

I could do dangerous. “If I’m your poison after two minutes, imagine how you’ll feel in a few hours.” That earned me a long swallow from her. “She’ll have the Foursight,” I added to Cameron. It was sweet how confident she was ordering that wine, but her lips would taste so much better after a sip from my glass.

She shot me a look, her freckles sharp against her reddening cheeks. “Pretty sure I can order for myself, and I’d like the Lynmar.”

“You don’t want the Lynmar. 2011 was a brutal year. Trust me.” No need to bore her about the early rains that season and the lack of fruit.

“Actually I do want the Lynmar.”

Cameron moved to grab the bottle, but I held up my hand. He halted. 

To her, I said, “I’ve been sipping the Foursight since I got here. You telling me you don’t want a taste?”

Her attention dropped to my lips again, and she grazed her teeth over hers. Fire sparked in her brown eyes. “I may want a taste of that wine. Later. For now I want the Lynmar.”

“It’s inferior.”

“It’s splendid.”

“The season was crap.”

“The season was hard, not crap.”

“The Foursight is a sure thing,” I said. She must have seen the heat in my gaze.

“I like the underdog,” she countered, a sultry note to her voice. “Finding a diamond in the rough. The vines that survived 2011 were stronger, and a few vintages shone. Like the Lynmar. Hints of spice. Creamy mouthfeel.” A quiet hum passed her lips.

Okay. The girl knew her wine, and my attraction to her spiked. With the haunts I’d been frequenting, and my bartending gig at Rudy’s Tavern, I hadn’t been around a woman like her in ages. No visible ink, her outfit more conservative than racy. Her straight brown hair would look sexy as hell tangled in my fist. “You sure you don’t want to skip to the mouthfeel part?”

She smiled freely, the first hint of her letting loose. “I’m still not sure how bitter the aftertaste will be.”

My answering grin was just as carefree. “I know how to make it sweet, Sunshine.”

She barely reacted, but her nostrils flared. “Then get me a glass of the Lynmar.”

“You’ll regret it.”

“I’m already regretting walking in here.”

I chuckled, unsure the last time flirting had been this much fun. “How about a bet?”

“I don’t bet with strangers.”

“But you have drinks with them?”

She paused. “What sort of bet?”

Between her rejection at Vesper and her stiff posture now, sitting beside me was probably pushing her beyond her limits. Limits I wanted to test. The women I’d messed around with weren’t tough to reel in. We were always after the same thing: a fun night between the sheets. The girl at my side was tipsy, but not so drunk she didn’t know what she was after. Something told me if I could unlace her, it would be lightyears beyond fun.

“You do a blind tasting of the Foursight and the Lynmar,” I said. “If you can’t tell them apart, then I buy you a glass of my choosing, and I get to taste it on your lips. At my place.”

“That escalated fast.” So did her breathing.

“Did you want this to go slow?”

Instead of turning me down, she said, “If I win…if I guess each wine, what do I get?”

“You tell me.”

“A winery?”

I barked out a laugh, but there was nothing funny about her joke. Two years ago, I’d have been able to ante up. “Might be out of my budget. Anything else?”

She looked at me through lowered lashes. “My place.”

Now we were getting somewhere.
Kelly is the author of CHASING CRAZY, MY PERFECT MISTAKE, A FINE MESS, and HOOKED ON TROUBLE, the latter three being part of her Over the Top series. A small-town girl at heart, she moved from the city to open a cheese shop with her husband in northern Ontario. When she’s not neck deep in cheese or out hiking, you can find her, notepad in hand, scribbling down one of the many plot bunnies bouncing around in her head. She’s also an incurable romantic, devouring romance novels into the wee hours of the morning.

REVIEW:

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Note: I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an unbiased review.

I’m all out of feels right now, people!

I have to admit I put off reading this ARC for a few days after receiving it. Normally, I would dive right into a Jay McLean novel, but I couldn’t do it with this book.There were two reasons. One, I knew the moment I started reading Logan I wouldn’t be able to stop. I would read it until I was done, and then I would have to pathetically wait for McLean’s next book. Two, I knew Logan was going to wreck me. That was a self-fulfilling prophecy. Both of those things happened.

Once again, Jay McLean wrote a book that held me in its clutches from the moment I began reading it. Shockingly, it wasn’t a love at first read for me. That had nothing to do with McLean’s storytelling and all to do with Logan. He and his decisions drove me absolutely crazy. I didn’t understand how someone with such an amazing family and support system could act the way he did. (He was definitely someone I would have avoided as a teenager in real life). I, like Aubrey, wanted to know what was behind his bravado.

The more I read, the more Logan made sense to me, and the more I loved his character. There was so much more to him than I originally thought. His inner demons were way stronger than I was expecting. His experience was so different from Lucy or Lucas’ and I came to admire him by the end of this book.

As for Aubrey, that girl rocked. She was so much stronger than she gave herself credit for. She may have been all sweetness, but there was so much fight in her. She was exactly the person Logan needed in his life.

I can’t end this review without saying how much I loved the part the rest of the Preston family played in this story. Lachlan especially stood out. That kid was wise beyond his years. I also can’t leave out Tom Preston. What an amazing father.

There’s not much else I can say about Logan without spoiling the story other than it was an emotional journey that I loved. Logan is one of those books you really have to experience for yourself to understand its magic.
