Published July 17, 2020 by bookbesties

🔥🔥 HOT NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Billion Dollar Date by Bella Michaels is LIVE and FREE in KU! Spice up your summer with Enzo DeLuca!

 

“Hello, Enzo.”

With just two simple words, Chari Atwell storms back into my life.

Beautiful. Irresistible. The woman standing before me is not the girl I knew growing up.

And I’m not the same hopeful kid everyone thought was going nowhere fast.

Nowadays, I’m a hero. A celebrity. A man who isn’t content with the billions in his bank account.

Call me ambitious, if you want. I have my sights set on the rest of the world, and don’t have time for a relationship, including the one woman who still has the power to bring me to my knees.

I will not break.

I will not succumb.

Except that I’m used to getting exactly what I want, and after one chance encounter, it’s clear that what I want is Chari Atwell…

Even if she is my best friend’s little sister.

This is a new author to me and i really enjoyed her writing style.

Chari runs into billionaire and local celebrity Enzo at her brothers celebration. To her he is a crush but also her brothers best friend. Enzo wants Chari after their encounter and he is ready to fight for his best friends sister. These two will have to overcome several obstacles including the distance since they both live in diffrent area codes and also getting the blesdinh of dearest brother.  Chari was a strong character but had some insecurities to work out. Enzo was this powerful local celebrity with a side of sexiness. The chemistry between these two was scorching. The storyline had a great flow, just the right amount of heat and strong characters were enough to make me a fan. Cant wait to see whats next!

Last Name by Dr. Rebecca Sharp(Review Post)

Published June 30, 2020 by bookbesties

🎲🎲 HOT NEW RELEASE 🎲🎲

Last Name by Dr. Rebecca Sharp is #LIVE! Don’t miss this swoony mistaken marriage standalone that will take you from the slots in Las Vegas to the shores of Lake Tahoe! #One-click today!

From bestselling author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp, comes a funny accidental marriage story about a loss, luck, and an unexpected love…

What happens in Vegas…

A regret-free girls’ weekend was supposed to help Carrie Bishop forget about her last relationship and cross-country move. Because when you’ve lost everything, letting loose is easy.

James Arden knew the stakes in Vegas were high, but saving a beautiful blonde at a Blackjack table wasn’t the kind of risk he thought he’d be taking.

Unfortunately, there’s only one recipe for Vegas. One part instant connection. Two parts too much alcohol. A splash of scavenger-hunt serendipity. Shake and enjoy.

Until Carrie wakes to a ring on her finger and a marriage certificate tying her to the illegible signature of a man who’s gone.

It was supposed to be just one night, but now she doesn’t even know her last name.

Coming home married was bad, but walking into work the next day was worse. Carrie’s mistake didn’t stay in Vegas, and her mystery husband is no longer a mystery: 𝘩𝘦’𝘴 𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘯𝘦𝘸 𝘣𝘰𝘴𝘴.

James knows what they have is special, and he’ll do anything to prove it. And as their undeniable attraction ups the ante, Carrie hopes she can get back her name without losing her heart in the process.

This New to Me Autho, was a cute and funny read. Perfect length for me. Alcohol and Vegas equals lots of mischief.  Carrie is in Vegas for a girls getaway before she and her co workers have to deal with the layoffs at work now that it will be under new management.  She gets separated from her friends and meets James. One night of fun mixed with some alcohol and Carrie now has a new last name and a shiny piece of jewelry on her hand. Turns out the new management is now also her new husband.

Carrie was funny and sweet and just trying to figure out what would be next after a horrible past relationship that leaves her with understandable trust issues. James was cute and broody at times. The relationship between these two was flirty and I enjoyed their banter.  James was playing for keeps while Carrie was at arms length. It was fun to see these two fall in love.

When You Wish Upon a Rouge: A Debutante Diaries Novel by Anna Bennett

Published May 28, 2020 by bookbesties

51GeI8ZI66LOnce upon a time in Anna Bennett’s When You Wish Upon a Rogue, three young ladies vowed to record their first London seasons and to fill in the gaps of their educations.

She knows what she wants.

Miss Sophie Kendall is happiest arranging the secret meetings of the Debutante Underground, a group of women who come together to discuss the weekly advice column The Debutante’s Revenge. What makes Sophie most unhappy is her impending march down the aisle to a man she does not love. But her family’s finances are in increasingly dire straits.

He makes an offer she can’t refuse.

Henry Reese, Earl of Warshire, hasn’t slept in weeks. Desperate to escape his manor house and its haunting memories, he heads for one of his abandoned London properties. There he meets a beautiful, intriguing woman—trespassing. Reese is far less interested in Sophie’s search for a secret meeting spot than he is in her surprising ability to soothe his demons. So he strikes a bargain with her: his shop in exchange for spending one night a week with him.

Is this love for real—or just a dream?

Sophie never expected this to happen. But she cannot deny the fire Reese sparks in her—and soon their shared desire burns bright. Sophie is irrevocably promised to another. But maybe these two ill-fated lovers can find a way to risk it all—all the way to happily ever after…

This is the first book by this author I have read and it was wonderful! I LOVE The
Debutante’s Revenge column and what it stands for and I can see myself being a faithful
member of The Debutante Underground, but shhhhh……the first rule of The Debutante
Underground is you don’t talk about The Debutante Underground. This book is everything I love about historical romance novels and more! It has a strong heroine and a strong hero to both see her worth and help her grow. It has the potential for scandal, total ruination, and desperation as well as hope, dedication, and a happy ending. I am impressed that this author used a soldier’s PTSD to build the foundation for a romantic relationship in a H.R. book. To that I say, “Bravo!”

I read this book in one sitting because I fell head over heels for the characters and couldn’t put it down, I hope you feel the same.
Miss Sophie Kendall created The Debutante Underground in response to the success of
The Debutante’s Revenge, a printed column she and her best friends, Fiona and Lily created. She decided readers of the article needed a place where they could secretly meet and discuss the article and anything else, they felt so inclined to bring up. The only problem is she needs to find a convenient location that can easily hold the growing meetings where no one would notice the members coming or going. A tip for a possible new meeting space from one of her members finds her looking into an abandoned tailor’s shop.

That’s where she meets Mr.
Peabody, the shop owner. Who as they share a cup of valerian root tea and discuss the shop falls fast asleep. With no hope that he will rent the space to her, the last thing she expected was to meet him in the garden of a ball or the scandalous offer he makes her.
Henry Reese former Major in the 41 st Foot, hasn’t slept in weeks. As a matter of fact, he
hasn’t been able to sleep for more than a few hours since leaving the front lines, when his beloved brother Edmund died, to take his role as the new Earl of Warshire. One evening after being plagued with nightmares as he restlessly wanders through the old tailor’s shop he owns; he comes across a most unexpected intruder. A lady. Who after a cup of tea and in the middle of a conversation, miraculously helps him not only fall asleep but stay asleep, waking up more rested than he has been in months. He is certain she is the key to the return of his sleep and is desperate for more. Surely that is the only reason he would ask her to spend the night with him, right?
I love this book and am a fast becoming a fan of this author.

The Rakess by Scarlett Peckham(Review Post)

Published April 29, 2020 by bookbesties

The Rakess: Society of Sirens, Volume 1 by [Scarlett Peckham]

Meet the SOCIETY OF SIRENS—three radical, libertine ladies determined to weaponize their scandalous reputations to fight for justice and the love they deserve…

She’s a Rakess on a quest for women’s rights…

Seraphina Arden’s passions include equality, amorous affairs, and wild, wine-soaked nights. To raise funds for her cause, she’s set to publish explosive memoirs exposing the powerful man who ruined her. Her ideals are her purpose, her friends are her family, and her paramours are forbidden to linger in the morning.

He’s not looking for a summer lover…

Adam Anderson is a wholesome, handsome, widowed Scottish architect, with two young children, a business to protect, and an aversion to scandal. He could never, ever afford to fall for Seraphina. But her indecent proposal—one month, no strings, no future—proves too tempting for a man who strains to keep his passions buried with the losses of his past.

But one night changes everything…

What began as a fling soon forces them to confront painful secrets—and yearnings they thought they’d never have again. But when Seraphina discovers Adam’s future depends on the man she’s about to destroy, she must decide what to protect… her desire for justice, or her heart.

Let me introduce to you an author who is new to me and who I can’t wait to read more and share more of her work with you. This book is one heck of a way to start a series!!
Whew!!! In most H.R. books it’s usually the hero who is dark and brooding or has a
heartbreaker reputation, but in this book it’s the complete opposite! The hero in this book is the one who’s reputation is put in jeopardy by the heroine.

IT IS SO AWESOME!!!!!

She is such a bad girl and I fell in love with her from the moment I met her. I was moved by her courage, her drive, and her strength. I really appreciate how raw and exposed the author made her in order to really draw us into her world. This story isn’t about a woman scorned who is out for revenge. This is a story about a woman scorned who is out to create a revolution and it is
incredible! What do we want? Equality for women!!! Seraphina Arden is the voice of the Society of Sirens. As such she has an obligation to finish writing her memoirs so they can be used to further the cause. In order to meet her publishing deadline, she returns to her childhood home, the place that started it all, in the hope that it will remind her of the events, emotions, and injustices that set her on the warpath for change. Even though she may be away from the entertainments of London, that doesn’t mean she is ready to give up her hedonistic ways or the vices that help her keep her demons at bay. When she meets the handsome architect living next door, all she wants is a little no strings attached fun to distract her from the chore of being in this place and reliving these memories. Will her reputation precede her and ruin her plans to seduce him? Or will she finally see that “nice” isn’t so bad after all?

After the loss of his beloved wife, Adam Anderson is focused on making a name for his architecture firm and guaranteeing its success so he can give his children the best life possible. That’s how he and his family found themselves in Cornwall for the summer, living right next door to a sultry author. He is here for business. This is just one more commission on his way to bigger and better things for his firm and his family. He cannot afford to let an improper proposition from The Rakess distract him from his goals, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be neighborly and be her friend, right?
While I enjoyed this book tremendously, I will give you all a little warning; as you all know I am a historical accuracy nut, and this book did really well in that realm except for one word, used in one dialogue: “bejesus”. The part of the story that the conversation takes place in is set in 1797 and the first known use of that word is not until 1861. I know it might seem like I am nit-picking since it was just one word and it was only used one time, but when I read it, it jarred me right out of the amazing world the author worked so hard to create, and I wanted all of you to be warned. That being said I like this book and these characters so much and I truly cannot wait for the next book in the series!
