FallingforthePlayboyHighResEbookNever trust a man who gets paid to take off his clothes for a living and then uses it as a pick-up line to get girls in bed with him.

That should’ve been enough for me to call in sick that day.

I’ve worked with male cover models like him before and they’re all the same—smooth-talking, sexy as sin, egotistical know-it-alls who think they’re God’s gift to women—all traits I know to steer clear of.

Assisting authors comes with many perks—reading on the job, using my organizing skills on a daily basis, drinking coffee by the gallons—but Maverick Kingston barges into my life and demands more than I can handle.

When we’re forced to road trip across the country together, he pushes every boundary I have and rearranges my thoughts on playing it safe. And when he “accidentally” drops his towel, he makes it very clear what he’s offering and proves he’s packing more than abs of steel under his clothes.

Working with him was brutal, but falling for him was unexpected.
And playing by the rules will be impossible.

This is a complete STANDALONE novel — filled with plenty of humor, steam, & romance! 18 & up only due to explicit sexual content, language, and adult content.

I have found a new book boyfriend and his name is Maverick! Even his name is sexy and exciting!

In this book we are introduced to Olivia who is an assistant to a best selling (and infuriating) author. Olivia has her insecurities but is hard working and loves the benefits she gets from her job. Enter Maverick, one of Rachel’s, the author, cover model and yes he is a sexy, charming playboy. Rachel has a book tour coming up and Maverick does not do airplanes so  guess who has to take the road trip with him and babysit? Oh yes Olivia it is! The moment these two meet its love for me.

Olivia is firm and sassy but intriguing and Maverick plays that charm on but Olivia seems like the only lady immune to it! This is truly a great recipe for a great romance book! You will fall in love with these two and I was Team Maverick all the way and was rooting for him and hoping that he would be seen in a different light than being the playboy because deep down they he is more than that.

There are so many layers to Maverick and it was exciting to have Olivia peeling back all the layers one at a time! The chemistry between them is off the charts and you won’t be disappointed!

As usually with Kennedy Fox I loved it and cant wait for the next book!

Diamond Fire:A Hidden Legacy Novella(Review Post)

Published November 5, 2018 by bookbesties

9780062878410_9d657

Nevada Frida Baylor and Connor Ander Rogan cordially invite you to join their wedding celebration. Summoning, weather manipulation, and other magical activities strictly forbidden.

Catalina Baylor is looking forward to wearing her maid of honor dress and watching her older sister walk down the aisle.  Then the wedding planner gets escorted off the premises, the bride’s priceless tiara disappears, and Rogan’s extensive family overruns his mother’s home.  Someone is cheating, someone is lying, and someone is plotting murder.

To make this wedding happen, Catalina will have to do the thing she fears most: use her magic.  But she’s a Baylor and there’s nothing she wouldn’t do for her sister’s happiness.  Nevada will have her fairy tale wedding, even if Catalina has to tear the mansion apart brick by brick to get it done.

I was SO excited to get back to the world of Nevada and Conner and all the magic! When I first read the blurp I thought this was going to be all about Cat and was sad when I thought there would be no Mad Rogan or Nevada in it at all, but I was happily surprised it had everyone in it that I loved and missed, plus a few more new characters!

The wedding highly anticipated wedding of Nevada and Conner has arrived and with Nevada being Nevada she fired the wedding coordinator/planner and nowhere family has to take charge and make her the happiest bride ever on her special day. Catalina rises to the challenge and will not let anything spoil her sisters day, including the theft of a Rogan family heirloom(diamond) that Nevada is supposed to wear on her wedding day.

Catalina is hired by Rogan’s mother who doesn’t want her son to know that she too suspects someone from her side of the family that is less loved took the diamond . As much as Cat doesn’t want to use her magic because she feels it’s too powerful she knows she must in order to pull this weeding off without a hitch. Even though Cat is shy she is a Baylor and when she is challenged by more than one of Rogan’s over privileged cousins she shines!

So much scandal and I was very impressed with Cat’s story and I thought that I would miss Nevada and Conner knowing this would be the novella that phased them out to start focusing on the others but I am super excited for Cat’s story!

Captivating and enjoyable!

The Proposal (Review Post)

Published November 5, 2018 by bookbesties

51n1aNVrciL

“There is so much to relate to and throughout the novel, there is a sharp feminist edge. Loved this one, and you will too.”–New York Times bestselling author Roxane Gay

The author of The Wedding Date serves up a novel about what happens when a public proposal doesn’t turn into a happy ending, thanks to a woman who knows exactly how to make one on her own…

When someone asks you to spend your life with him, it shouldn’t come as a surprise–or happen in front of 45,000 people.

When freelance writer Nikole Paterson goes to a Dodgers game with her actor boyfriend, his man bun, and his bros, the last thing she expects is a scoreboard proposal. Saying no isn’t the hard part–they’ve only been dating for five months, and he can’t even spell her name correctly. The hard part is having to face a stadium full of disappointed fans…

At the game with his sister, Carlos Ibarra comes to Nik’s rescue and rushes her away from a camera crew. He’s even there for her when the video goes viral and Nik’s social media blows up–in a bad way. Nik knows that in the wilds of LA, a handsome doctor like Carlos can’t be looking for anything serious, so she embarks on an epic rebound with him, filled with food, fun, and fantastic sex. But when their glorified hookups start breaking the rules, one of them has to be smart enough to put on the brakes…

I get excited when I read a new author and love the nervous butterflies in my tummy because I hope for a good book and this book sounded like it would be great.

 Nik is a freelance writer who is at a baseball game with her boyfriend of 5 months when low and behold said boyfriend is down on a knee and asking that question most girls would be happy to hear. Nic is mortified because how can she tell him no in front of millions? Who wouldn’t day no, they have only been dating for 5 months and she wasn’t that really into him in the first place! Enter Carlos and his sister Angela who are watching everything unfold and Carlos comes to her rescue and saves her and friends are made.  Carlos is sexy doctor and single and Nik and Carlos are both looking for no strings relationship.

Yep of course it won’t be smooth sailing! The banter between these two is magnetic from the start! Carlos family is sweet and funny and real! This story was sweet, sassy and magnetic. This new to me author did well in captivating me. I was glad to have a page turner! Loved it and definitely two thumbs up!

The Darkest Star(Review Post)

Published October 30, 2018 by bookbesties

51OxOzq-KbL

In the world of the Lux, secrets thrive, lies shatter, and love is undeniable.

#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout brings her trademark drama and intrigue to a new romantic YA science fiction series with The Darkest Star. A girl pulled into in a world she doesn’t understand finds herself confronted by long buried secrets, a betrayal that could tear her life apart…and Armentrout’s most swoonworthy book boyfriend yet.

Seventeen-year-old Evie Dasher knows firsthand the devastating consequences of humanity’s war with the aliens. When she’s caught up in a raid at a notorious club known as one of the few places where humans and the surviving Luxen can mingle freely, she meets Luc, an unnaturally beautiful guy she initially assumes is a Luxen…but he is in fact something much more powerful. Her growing attraction for Luc will lead her deeper and deeper into a world she’d only heard about, a world where everything she thought she knew will be turned on its head…

At the Publisher’s request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

I find myself sucked back into the wonderful world that Jennifer has created with the Luxen, Origin and Hybrids, oh my with The Darkest Star.

This book basically picks up 5 years or so after the last book in the Lux novels; Opposition leaves off.  The invasion has ended we see Evie, a young human girl going to a nightclub with her friend where Luxen are known to frequent. What could go wrong? Enter Luc, Luc is hot, young and infuriating to say the least and naturally Evie can’t stand him, but at the same time is drawn to him in some strange way. From the moment GO, Evie was thrown into a crazy world where Luxen and Humans co living are not the only things she has to worry about.  Luc is bad news the most powerful of all the Origins ever, she has seen him kill without breaking a sweat, Evie knows this, but she can’t seem to stay away from him and he as a familiarity with her that she finds disturbing. When Friends turn to enemies and kids start going missing, then turn up dead, Evie thinks she has seen the worst, but Evie’s life is blown apart and threatened all in the span of 48 hours Luc will stop at nothing to protect what’s his. Luc gave me SERIOUS Professor Snape vibes while showing off his sensitive side to Evie and it MELTED me every time.

Jennifer sucked me back in both humor, fells and some good old fashion smoldering kisses like she is so good at! I can’t wait for the next book and delve more into this awesome new world!

The Wolf of Kisimul Castle (Highland Isles Book 3)REVIEW POST

Published October 25, 2018 by bookbesties

 

511u+nhauiL

Mairi Maclean is kidnapped on her wedding day by the enemy of her dead husband. Taken north to the water-surrounded Kisimul Castle, she is held captive in the name of retribution. But The Wolf of Kisimul Castle soon learns Mairi is not a docile pawn in this game of war between neighboring Scots. Nor will she be frightened into walking down the aisle to wed the fierce Highland chief.

Alec MacNeil is set on revenge. When he finds his enemy dead, he takes his wife to replace the one that was murdered. An eye for an eye. A bride for a bride. But Mairi is more tiger than kitten and refuses to bend to his will. Set stubbornly against one another, the passion that flares between them threatens to tear Alec’s strategy to shreds.

Each book in the Highland Isles series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order. 
Series Order:
Book #1 The Beast of Aros Castle 
Book #2 The Rogue of Islay Isle
Book #3 The Wolf of Kisimul Castle

 

This is a new author for me and I am so glad I found her!!  This book was such a fun read.  From the first page I was hooked.  I will admit that after I saw that this book was based in the Scottish Highlands, I was a little worried if the dialogue in this book was going to annoy me since some authors like to try to write all dialogue with Scottish accents.  But my worries were completely unfounded.  Yes, this author uses phrasing and language from the time and location of the book, but it is not over done and I found it only enhanced both the dialogue and story line of the book.

  The twist at the end of this book was awesome!  I feel like it really brought the entire story and the romance together in a way that had my heart racing and my pages turning.  I love the adventurous, cunning, and determined leading lady just as much as the stubborn, arrogant, and kind leading male character of this book.  I like that while Kisimul Castle is a secluded fortress on an island the author made sure to show The Wolf’s dedication to his people by including the strong community of Barra and the love of the people for their Laird.

I can’t wait for all of you to read this book and start this series with me.

Duchess by Design(Review Post)

Published October 23, 2018 by bookbesties

9780062838803_a98ef

In the first novel of Maya Rodale’s enthralling new series, an English duke vows to make an American seamstress his duchess.

In Gilded Age Manhattan, anything can happen…

Seeking a wealthy American bride who can save his family’s estate, Brandon Fiennes, the duke of Kingston, is a rogue determined to do the right thing. But his search for an heiress goes deliciously awry when an enchanting seamstress tumbles into his arms instead.

…and true love is always in fashion

Miss Adeline Black aspires to be a fashionable dressmaker—not a duchess—and not even an impossibly seductive duke will distract her. But Kingston makes an offer she can’t refuse: join him at society events to display her gowns and advise him on which heiresses are duchess material. It’s the perfect plan—as long as they resist temptation, avoid a scandal, and above all do not lose their hearts.

ABSOLUTELY LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, THIS BOOK!!!!! I adore all things historical fashion so when I discovered that the main character of this book is a dress maker I was insanely excited. Adeline is every bit of the strong, independent,and brilliant heroine I look for in any book I read. Seeing her overcome her obstacles with the help of a few generous and unexpected allies was truly heart-warming. In a time when rising above one’s social status from birth, was nearly-impossible for anyone, for a woman to make it happen with as much success as Adeline found makes her story remarkable. Throw in her handsome English Duke and their magnetic romance and you have a book I was hooked on from cover to cover (I even read the Author’s Notes ?).
This is the second book I have read by Maya Rodale and while I wasn’t terribly impressed with the first book of hers I read this one made up for it 10 fold. I can-not wait to read her next book to see who I meet and where their story takes me.
