Her Reluctant Husband by Erica Marselas (Review Post)

Published March 28, 2021 by bookbesties

Release Date: March 25

I would do anything for my family, including marrying a man who hates me.

Not like I had a choice when the person who helped raise me tells me who I must marry in order to save my home. 

When I came face to face with Alex Wilks again, the man who despises me and wishes I never stepped foot back into Kinder Falls after the day I left, I didn’t know what I was in for. 

Alex was the boy I once idolized, but later, he became the man that broke my trust. 

Both of us are reluctant to dig into the lies and secrets surrounding the night that broke us apart. 

Because it might end up being the truth that destroys us.

One year. 

We just have to survive one year.

The only thing is, we both have so much to lose.

But maybe everything to gain.

Sometimes I worry when I dive into a new author because of course you don’t want to be disappointed and left finding something else to read. At first glance the cover on this book is eye catching and it’s a cute cover. Then there is the disclaimer of possible triggers and now I am more intrigued. The prologue started a emotional roller coaster that I was not expecting at all. And from there it’s a wild ride. This book really pulls at all the heart strings. This is a second chance romance elevated. My heart breaks for June and amazed at how strong she is from the minute you start reading the first sentence. Alex I wanted to punch him but again he didn’t have the whole story. When these two come together it’s beautiful. This story was written beautifully and showed the good the bad and the ugly with a HEA to soothe that rollercoaster ride . It is a book about healing and finding that love and comfort. This was definitely not what I expected when I started reading but I love when I discover a new author and it makes me want to binge anything else that they have written. Great read all the way!

My Beautiful Neighbor by Piper Rayne(Review Post)

Published March 28, 2021 by bookbesties
OUT NOW

Who’s the mystery woman who just walked into my brewery? 
 
I’m not the only one from my Alaskan small town asking themselves that question. But I’m positive, I’m the only one in Sunrise Bay undressing the pretty blonde in my head. Everything about her, from her make-up to her high heels says she’s a fish out of water. 
 
Whispers and speculations run rampant until the secret of who she is gets uncovered. Then the rumor mill goes into overdrive when she announces she’s staying to open a bookstore in the building next to mine—throwing a big wrench into my plans to buy that empty building.
 
I quickly find myself in a tug-of-war since my business partner/brother is upset she’s ruined the opportunity to expand our business. I try to keep my distance, but I’ve got one sister with a gossip column on the local radio station and two meddling grandmas setting me up as a tour director.
 
And now I kind of like the idea of our new neighbor staying. But small-town life isn’t for the weak—time will tell if she has what it takes to be one of us.

Did someone say new series? Yep the duo does it again! New family and town but still all the bells and whistles we love. I cried after the last series and glad to have a new family to be obsessed with. This book delivered in true Piper Rayne fashion and packed a punch. We meet again our grandma duo that we love and guess what ladies and gentleman……. they are still up to their same tricks lol. Cade is part owner of the local brewery along with his step brother Jed and they hope to expand their business and come close to snatching up the space next door. Well we know what happens to plans sometimes. Presley is the blonde beauty in town that has everyone whispering. When Cade and Presley meet well lets say its not a instant friendship lol. Presley is determined but has some issues to work through. With some time these teo come to an agreement but will it work? Love the cover its so colorful and alluring. Again loved the hero and heroine both funny and charismatic.

It was a great start to the new series!

Hard Luck by Sara Ney(Review Post)

Published March 28, 2021 by bookbesties

Hard Luck is part of the Trophy Boyfriend series and involves a teammate crossing that teammate/sister boundary.

Mateo has been captivated by his teammates sister for a long time, and after one night with her, he can’t forget her. True is not having much luck in the dating department and thought one night wouldn’t hurt anything. Now she now has no place to live and on top of that it gets worse when she finds out she is preggers.

I loved these two characters together. True is trying to work out her emotions of how she will proceed now that in nine months she will be adding to her family. She has that emotional struggle and it had me kind of feeling for Mateo. He is all about family since he comes from a big family. I love that the two come together and their relationship and friendship grows.True has two brothers that are real entertainment and they alone will have you in stitches. It is not a instalove and I was glad for that. I love the banter with Mateo being crazy and overbearing at times and his Spanish family that just kept the story funny and light. I love these Trophy Boyfriends series so much!

The Devil in Her Bed by Kerrigan Byrne(Review Post)

Published March 28, 2021 by bookbesties

The Devil in Her Bed is the final book in the stunning Devil You Know trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Kerrigan Byrne!

He lives in secret service to the Crown—a man of duty, deception, and an undeniable attraction to a woman who threatens to tear his whole world apart.

They call him the Devil of Dorset. He stands alone, a man of undeniable power. Moving in and out of shadows, back alleys and ballrooms, he is unstoppable and one of the Crown’s most dangerous weapons. However, when he sets his sights on the undeniably beautiful Countess of Mont Claire, Francesca Cavendish, he doesn’t realize that he has met a match like no other.

TRUE LOVE WEARS NO DISGUISE

Francesca is a countess by day and stalks her prey—those responsible for the death of her family—by night. What she does not expect is to be thrown into the path of the devil himself, the Earl of Devlin. She has secrets of her own and he seems determined to lay them bare. Can her heart survive finding the love of her life and losing him when all is revealed?

SUCH A GOOD BOOK! 

Who doesn’t a love story of long lost childhood friends who are reunited after years apart? Throw in a few lies, some revenge, the murder of almost an entire family, and a sexy spy and you have a book I couldn’t put down.   Kerrigan Byrne has a knack for writing stories about long lost soul-mates who seem to come back from the dead just to get their HEA and no lie…..I am a big fan.  Like, these are the types of soul-deep connections and end all be all romances are what my wildest dreams are made of and I CANNOT GET ENOUGH. 

       Francesca Cavendish, Countess of Monte Claire will stop at nothing to avenge the murders of those she loved the most as a child.  She has spent every day since she witnessed their deaths training and honing the skills she needs to insure her success and every night sacrificing her reputation to get the information that will finally lead her to whoever ordered the hit on her family.   What does her reputation matter when the only boy she ever loved is dead? Besides, she doesn’t care what anyone thinks about her anyways, she has the love of her fellow Red Rouges, and they know the truth, and that along with her revenge is all that matters, right?   Of course! Or so she thought… 

   Chandler, the Devil of Dorset, is one of the Crown’s most powerful spies.  He is very good at what he does.  So much so that people who have known him since he was a child don’t even recognize him when he dons one of his many disguises and assumes one of his various aliases. With no history, no close friends, and no family to trace he is untouchable. His weakness is he has no weakness. Or so he thought is until his latest mission brought him face to face with an obsession he just can’t shake.

     This book was dark, exciting, and sexy, and made me swoon.  I couldn’t put it down.

This is a new author to me but I figured ok rockstar and MM I will give it a go. I love the cover so that was a plus and the blurb hooked me a bit more. So now moving along to starting the book. I really enjoyed her writing style. This was a winner for me. First you have Jamie , the rockstar, who is famous and a huge sex symbol to the world but has a huge secret about his sexual orientation. Then there is out and proud Sammy who is smooth and funny and just gives you the cool guy vibe. I love the story of Jamie emotions and his struggles of being gay but having to have that image that you feel you have to portray yourself as. Their connection was sweet and heartwarming. This was a home run for me. There was never a dull moment and I loved the friend group. I love it when a author creates a environment in the book and you just wish that it was real and happening now so I can go chill and play Mario Kart too! Lol overall win from cover to end for me.

A Lady’s Formula for Love (The Secret Scientists of London Book 1) by Elizabeth Everett REVIEW POST

Published March 17, 2021 by bookbesties

What is a Victorian lady’s formula for love? Mix one brilliant noblewoman and her enigmatic protection officer. Add in a measure of danger and attraction. Heat over the warmth of humor and friendship, and the result is more than simple chemistry–it’s elemental.

Lady Violet is keeping secrets. First, she founded a clandestine sanctuary for England’s most brilliant female scientists. Second, she is using her genius on a confidential mission for the Crown. But the biggest secret of all? Her feelings for protection officer Arthur Kneland.

Solitary and reserved, Arthur learned the hard way to put duty first. But the more time he spends in the company of Violet and the eccentric club members, the more his best intentions go up in flames. Literally.

When a shadowy threat infiltrates Violet’s laboratories, endangering her life and her work, scientist and bodyguard will find all their theories put to the test–and learn that the most important discoveries are those of the heart.

      Ok Besties, it is my pleasure to introduce you to break out author Elizabeth Everett. In this her first book we get to see her attention to detail in both building a multitude of characters but in the intricate ways they all interact with one another, and how each interaction is worked into the story line in ways that allow you grow to know the hero and heroine individually outside of their interactions.   It was a unique experience and I really enjoyed it.  I also was surprised that although this heroine is literally a damsel in distress, who our hero has been hired to safeguard, and not my typical cup of- sassy, independent, knows what she wants, bada$$ heroine- tea, I found myself championing her success and loving her all the same.  What she lacks in self-confidence, poise, and cunning she makes up for in determination, goodwill, and intelligence and seriously those things combined give her a different kind of strength.  A kind of quiet strength that I think the world needs to recognize more of, so bravo to this author for spotlighting it!  This isn’t your typical historical romance in that the setting is a secret society for lady scientists and really, that alone was half of the fun of the book, you never knew when something would randomly explode or crawl out from under the door. Of course the other half of the excitement that makes this book such an enjoyable read is the romance that we see bloom between our damsel and her guardian.  Watching as both characters discover their self-worth through their reflection in the other’s eyes and witnessing the amount of personal growth and discovery the connection between them allows warms my heart and brings a smile to my face every time I think about it.   Lady Violet Greycliff and Authur Kneland perfect for each other and I am glad they get their HEA.

     So with all that in mind I think it is safe to safe that I really liked this book, I am excited to see where this author’s career will take us, and I can’t wait to see what all of you think as well. 

Prey (Blackwater Pack Book 2) Release Day Post + Review!

Published January 8, 2021 by bookbesties

That was then…

After escaping her birth pack, being kidnapped, and nearly dying on the mountain, Skye has found a home in Blackwater. Surrounded by friends and family, and her mate, she’s ready for her final semester at Granite Peak Academy to be a lot quieter, and a lot more uneventful, than last year.

…this is now

When shifters from the academy are taken, Skye and her pack are forced to return to Blackwater. With the Spring Summit looming, Skye will finally have to face the demons of her past if she wants to have a life with Remy.

Things aren’t what they seem

Skye is done running and ready to fight for her future. She’ll do whatever it takes to protect the ones she loves … even if the threat is from someone she trusts.

PREY is the second book in the Blackwater Pack series, and should be read in order:

#1: SANCTUM
#1.5: BROKEN

It contains scenes and themes not suitable for younger readers, including bullying, abuse, and sexual themes/scenes. Recommended age: 17+

Prey (Blackwater Pack, #2)Prey by Hannah McBride
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is probably my fav book(so far) from this series and I’m so excited everyone else gets to enjoy it as much as me!

Prey Picks up a few weeks after where Sanctum left off and a few weeks where the companion novella Broken left off as well and Skye has finally started to settle into her new life with friends, new family and her mate, Remy.
Everything is perfect, the gang is back at GPA the sun is shinning, she’s in love and experiencing things she never though she would….. until female shifters start disappearing and the school is forced to take drastic measures.
Skye has to face past horrors and people whom she never though she’d have to see again and her will and her mates is tested and stretched.

I loved this book simply because we see Skye really come into her own at this point, with herself, her feelings, and her role as Remy’s mate. Hannah did a superb job at the range of emotions that flew off the page from, elation, to excitement to heartbreak, to fear, to love. Skye’s journey in this book is a hard one and at time super emotional and the story made me cry but then in the next chapter also made me smile and laugh. By the end of the book I was defiantly left with a super O face of shock(😮)and immediately needed more.
All those markers I have for a great book/story/world were awesomely checked off with Prey!

Intriguing plot✔️
Relatable Characters(even down to the side characters)✔️
Humor✔️
emotion so real I needed a chapter break✔️
Steamy sexy times✔️✔️✔️✔️
Thirst for more✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️

I’m am HERE for the conclusion of this amazing world in the final book!!

A Co-Worker’s Crush by Piper Rayne(Review Post)

Published January 5, 2021 by bookbesties

Release Date: January 5

Three tattoo guns.

Five motorcycle tires.

Countless T-shirts.

That’s what I lost before I realized nothing good comes from dating my co-workers. 

Usually, I don’t have much self-control. So, the fact that Frankie Grant is a hot, talented tattoo artist means it’s a damn miracle she hasn’t already been in my bed. But nothing can happen between us because Frankie comes with Jolie, her young daughter, and a crap load of baggage from her ex. And those are two things I never entertain.

Anyone who knows me—the screwed up foster kid from the wrong side of the tracks—knows I’m not the guy you take home to meet your parents, let alone your kid. But I also know what it’s like not to have parents, so things get complicated when Jolie asks me to be her daddy.

I might as well just slash my own tires now.

This is sadly the last book in this series and I can say Piper Rayne killed it AGAIN! This is a co worker/somewhat enemies to lovers/ friends to lovers trope that delivers on all levels. We met Jax who is the bad boy foster kid that has his heart on lockdown. Love and leave them is his style and does not want any commitment. Frankie is his co worker who is a single mom of a cute 5 year old and recently left a bad relationship from her ex who is a addict. Frankie and Jax have that love hate banter back and forth and love to get their digs in. Hence the bet of Jax being Mr Celibate and things really start to heat up. When I tell you the tension is so thick between these two but seeing how Jax is with Jolie (Frankie’s daughter) and it will melt your heart and make those ovaries burst! I love it when these bad boys fall hard! One great thing about this author is that they truly create a world that you want to be a part of. The friends are funny and great personalities and the stories that flow so fluently is so refreshing. You always hate to say goodbye to a series but seeing the characters for the next series is exciting. They give you a taste that will leave you craving for more!!

Campus Player By Jennifer Sucevic (Review Post)

Published December 29, 2020 by bookbesties



Release Date: December 26

Trust me when I say that Rowan Michaels fever is 

alive and well at Western University. His fanbase is 

legendary. 

The guy is a major player.  Both on and off the field.

Girls fall all over themselves to be with him. They fill the 

stands at football practice, show up at parties he’s rumored to 

be at, and basically stalk him around campus.

It’s a little nauseating.

Don’t these girls have any self-respect when it comes to a hot 

guy?

Fine…I’ll admit it, he’s good looking. If you’re into that kind of 

thing. Which I’m not. I’ve got school and soccer to keep me 

busy which is exactly why I avoid him like an unfortunate clap 

diagnosis.

Too bad for me that Rowan is my father’s star quarterback. He’s practically part of 

the family, attending Wednesday night dinners with us. To make matters worse, 

we’re in the same major and get stuck together in classes every semester. It’s like 

the universe is trying to play a cosmic joke on me. The one guy I’d like to steer clear 

of is the very same one I can’t seem to get away from.

But what if Rowan isn’t the manwhore I pegged him to be?

What if one little secret has the capability to change everything between us?

*This is a mature New Adult novel with strong language and sexual situations 

intended for readers over the age of 18*

This is a sports college romance. This is like a enemies to lover trope I would say. Demi is the daughter to the football coach and she has always thought that Rowan was a womanizer and cocky. Rowan is the star Football player and has been around Demi every Wednesday for her family weekly dinner with his coach. The attraction and tension is there and intensified when the coach asks for Demi to tutor Rowan. Once the secret is out Demi starts to see Rowan differently and it becomes a different ball game. Rowan is sweet and sexy and Demi can stand her ground.
It was a nice story but I felt that Demi could have been a little more aware of the feelings for Rowan and felt Rowan could have pursued her more. All in all it was a new author to me and I would not be opposed to reading other books from the author.

A Wright Christmas by K.A. Linde(Review Post)

Published December 3, 2020 by bookbesties

A new second chance single dad stand alone romance set in the world of the Wrights from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

At seventeen, I left Isaac Donoghue behind to become a professional ballerina.

When I return home to dance in the Nutcracker, I never expect to run into him. Let alone on my first day in town. I can’t help but admire him in a crisp suit with his toned soccer body, chiseled jaw line, and all too familiar piercing green eyes. I thought nothing could surprise me more.

Until his five year old daughter runs out of the ballet studio.

I’m only in town for a month. I shouldn’t get involved with anyone, especially the ex I’ve been pining after for years. Especially when he has a daughter to consider.

But where Isaac is concerned, I’ve never been able to stay away.

With the help of some Christmas magic, maybe we finally have a shot at our second chance.

A Wright ChristmasA Wright Christmas by K.A. Linde
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Second chance romance with a single dad and his old high school sweetheart set during the holidays. Peyton is home for a month and runs into her once love Isaac. When they were younger they went on separate paths in life but It seems like both of them still had love for each other. Now being around each other those feelings come to the surface. Will they be able to make things work now? It was a short and sweet story. They are in the ballerina world so that is in the forefront . There is little drama and just overall a nice holiday second chance romance.
