1.Hate-screw my high school nemesis.

2.Remember to hate him.

3.Prove my brother wrong.

It should be easy.

It isn’t.


As the owner of Pick-A-Dick, New Orleans’ premier hook-up website, my job is simple. Connect two people for a no-strings, no-expectations hook-up. The plus for my clients is that I’m the one who gets to sift through the dick pics—except this time, they’re required.

My problem? My brother, co-owner of Pick-A-Dick’s sister dating site, doesn’t believe it’s possible to hook up with someone three times and not fall in love.

I disagree. I know it’s possible.

And my disagreement is exactly how I end up reconnected with my high school nemesis, Elliott Sloane. The guy who asked me to junior prom and then stood me up. Who egged my car when I rejected him, and convinced my senior homecoming date to ghost me.

It should be easy to hate-screw him. If only he was still that person, instead of a hot-as-hell single dad, working as a builder to make ends’ meet, fighting for custody of his daughter.

Not to mention packing in the pants department…


Three hook-ups.

One outcome.

By day, New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author Emma Hart dons a cape and calls herself Super Mum to two beautiful little monsters. By night, she drops the cape, pours a glass of whatever she fancies—usually wine—and writes books.

Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.

She likes to be busy—unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.




Shot on Gold(Review Post)

Published February 13, 2018 by bookbesties


In the new Play-by-Play novel by the New York Times bestselling author of The Final Score, opposites attract when a figure skater and hockey player lace up their skates–and go for the gold…

Will “Mad Dog” Madigan is making his second trip to the Winter Games, and he couldn’t be happier. Hockey is his life and playing for the U.S. team is a privilege. Then he meets U.S. figure skater Amber Sloane. She’s beautiful, ambitious and driven–everything Will desires in a woman. He would love to show Amber how hot life off the ice can be.

Amber has skated her entire life, sacrificing everything in the hopes of one day winning gold. Now she’s competing for the third and final time. She intends to win, and nothing’s going to get in her way–until she meets Will. He’s an irresistible charmer, and before long Amber is wondering if this sexy hockey player is the perfect guy to show her some moves outside the rink.

But after all the medals have been awarded, Will and Amber will have to decide if what they have together is just a fling or a real shot at true love.

Here is another book in the play by play series from Jaci that I liked! You have Will and Amber; two people focused on their goals to getting that gold medal! Will is sex on a stick, obvi he’s a hockey player, who meets Amber who is a figure skater, aka, also hot! He is a charmer and Amber tries to put up her defenses and focus on her goal, but Will is bent on showing Amber a good time. What will it hurt if it’s just temporary? No harm in just having a little fun right? That’s what they tell themselves until, they get to know each other and feelings get in the way. I may be dating myself here but this book reminded me SO much of this movie about an uptight figure skater and a bad boy hockey player, but this one was, a little steamier.  It was great to watch their journey. I connected with other characters in the play by play series more than these characters but that’s not to say they weren’t great. While this story wasn’t my fav, it was still gold!

The Duke’s Daughters:Lady Be Reckless(ARC Review)

Published February 1, 2018 by bookbesties


The Duke’s five daughters have beauty, breeding, and impeccable reputations. Or at least, they did. Now that two have chosen to follow their hearts, can the others be far behind?

Lady Olivia refuses to repeat her siblings’ scandalous mistakes. Instead, she will marry the lord rejected by her sister and help with his good works. When he resists, Olivia forms another plan: win his lordship’s admiration by helping his illegitimate best friend find a bride. How difficult can it be to transform the rakish Edward Wolcott into a gentleman? To ignore his virile good looks? To not kiss him in a moment of impulsive madness? Apparently, very difficult indeed.

Edward Wolcott promised his ailing father he would marry well, and it appears Lady Olivia wishes to assist him. The sparkling firebrand intends to smooth his way through London’s ballrooms, parlors, and eligible ladies, while all Edward’s thoughts suddenly revolve around bedrooms . . . and Lady Olivia herself.  Only a scoundrel would seduce the duke’s most dutiful daughter. And only a truly reckless lady would risk everything to be in his arms . . .

This is the second book in this series I have had the absolute pleasure to read.  Once I started reading this book I couldn’t put it down.  I have fallen head over heels for the Duke’s Daughters.  I love how each of them has their own completely individual story and how the author makes each sister’s story an influence on the next.  I loved watching as Lady Olivia discovers the real world and herself and helps Edward find his true value in the process.  I 100% recommend this series and cannot wait to see what the next two sisters have in store for us.

Montana Heat: True to You(ARC Review)

Published February 1, 2018 by bookbesties


A Montana Man risks everything for the woman he loves . . .

Undercover DEA Special Agent Dawson King spent five months in a Montana prison establishing a fake identity to take down a ruthless drug dealer and put him behind bars. Except there’s a wild card . . . the killer’s beloved daughter. Cara Potter may appear to be on the right side of the law, but King has learned the hard way to trust no one—even someone as tantalizing as the coffee shop owner. She’s irresistible . . . but is she also dangerous?

From the moment he enters her life, King makes Cara . . . nervous. The handsome drifter says he wants to get his life together . . . but there is something about him that doesn’t quite ring true. Cara wants to believe in him, yet she holds back despite the way he awakens dormant dreams and leaves her breathless with his sexy smile, steamy kisses, his every touch.

When the explosive truth comes out and she’s betrayed by the ones she loves, Cara must decide—can she trust her heart, or should she listen to her head?

This is the second book in the series, while not necessary to read the first prior to reading this, the first does come up quite a bit.  The author recaps the basic story line every time a character from the first book is mentioned.  This book was slow moving for the first half, almost everything happened very quickly in the second half and then it ended.

Cara is strong heroine who was dealt a bad hand in life from the start, walls around her heart, and trusts no one.  Her dad, IceMan, is the head of a drug cartel.  He tried to stay out of her life for the most part but was around enough to make it difficult.  When her mother died at the age of 7, she was sent to live with her grandparents on the farm until they died when she was a teen.  Cara turned the property that her grandparents left her into a coffee shop and half-way house for ex-cons getting out of prison on parole. King is an undercover DEA agent sent to take down her dad.  The job is simple, get close to Cara to find out which side she is on, try and get her to help take down her dad.  King didn’t realize how much their pasts had already overlapped.  Neither of them ever thought that they would find love.  She was supposed to be the job and not the love of his life.

The first half of the book lets you really get to know the characters, you find out everything that has lead them to the farm.  Once things really start to take form, everything moves very quickly.  It is a little predictable.  Everything comes down to one night full of arrests, explosions, and truth bombs they didn’t see coming.  Blood will be shed, truths will come out, and lives will be lost.  Cara must decide if she loves King enough to get to know the real man and give them a chance at their happily ever after.

THE UPSIDE OF BEING SINGLE by Emma Hart – Release Day Promo

Published January 30, 2018 by bookbesties



If anyone asks, I knew better than to flash my boobs for Mardi Gras beads.

I still don’t know why I did it.
Maybe it was the dare from my two best friends.
Maybe it was the guys on the balcony saying they’d throw Fireball shots with the beads.
Or maybe it was the quiet guy in the corner of that same balcony with piercing gray eyes, wavy dark hair, and a smile so tempting I wanted to climb up there and lick it off his face.
Maybe it was because I never thought I’d see them again.
Not that it matters. Not today.
Because the hotel I manage was finally bought—and the guy who walks in and introduces himself as my new boss is Mr. Tall, Dark, and Silent.

There are many upsides to being single.
Your new boss knowing what your boobs look like?
Not one of them.

“I just—I don’t get it.” I threw myself onto the sofa and almost sent the box of donuts flying onto the floor.
Thankfully, Peyton was quicker than the box. She grabbed it and sat back, hugging it to herself. “First, watch the donuts. I got the last two pink sprinkles, and I’m partial to them.” She stroked the top of the box. “Second, what don’t you get? How he doesn’t care about your boobs? I don’t care about them either.”
“You’re not supposed to care about my boobs. You’re a woman, for a start.”
“I care about your boobs,” Chloe interrupted, tucking her blond hair behind her ear. “I think you have great boobs. Bra or no bra.”
“Usually no bra,” Peyton added.
“I’m not afraid to throw something at you,” I warned her. “This is awkward.”
“Ugh! Get over yourself, Melanie!” Peyton snapped her fingers. “You are a grown woman. He is a grown man. He saw your tits. So what? Steven Lawrence saw your tits five times in junior year.”
I snatched a donut from the box. Don’t tell my hips. “We were dating! It’s entirely different!”
Chloe delicately picked up a white-iced donut before saying, “She’s right. It is different, Peyt. They were dating, and Jacob is her boss. You can’t expect her to just get over that. It is partly your fault.”
“It’s just as much your fault,” Peyton reminded her, then looked at me and nodded toward Chloe. “Drunky smurf over here shook her Tic-Tacs like she was in front of a bachelor party leaving a curry house.”
I choked on my laughter. “That’s not the point. You got us drunk. It’s almost entirely your fault.”
“Look, sunshine,” she said, tearing a bite of donut off the ring so her words were muffled. “I didn’t grab your shirt and whip it up like a two-dollar hooker on overtime. You did that, so grow a pair and take responsibility for your actions.”
“You sound like you don’t want to take responsibility for yours.”
“Hey. You’re big girls. You can refuse cocktails.”
Chloe and I shared a glance. “Refuse cocktails?” she said. “I don’t understand.”
“You have us mixed up with your other friends,” I continued. “But, wait. You don’t have other friends.”
“I have plenty of friends,” Peyt said.
“Friends without penises. Or benefits.”
She paused. “We’re not talking about me. We’re talking about your hot boss who knows what your tits look like.”
“You’re not helping.”
“I’m not trying to help. I’m trying to slap your size-eight ass into reality, you idiot.”
“Slap mine into reality and I’m putting yours on a catapult. Right into the middle of the gulf.” I tore my donut in two and gave her boobs a pointed look. “I always wondered if silicone would float.”

TRIVE By Aly Martinez(Review Post)

Published January 29, 2018 by bookbesties

Now AvailableGiveawayThrive

When I was nineteen years old, I was faced with a choice that changed my life.

Keep the safety of what I already knew or risk losing everything with the young, hotheaded soldier who stole my heart.


I chose the wrong man, and for seventeen years, I paid in tears, blood, and shattered dreams for that decision.


Now, there’s a man in my house, holding a gun to my head on the order of my ex-husband—given from his prison cell. 


That hotheaded soldier I was too afraid to choose? He’s now a six-foot-three wall of muscle who works at the country’s most premier bodyguard agency. I’ve always wanted him, but now, I’ve never needed him more.


It’s the call I’m terrified to make. 

I’m sure he still hates me… Even though I’ve never stopped loving him.


I have recently become a huge fan of Anything Aly writes and it seems she just get’s better and better with each book that’s released.

Thrive is no different.

At first glance I swore this was a love triangle and I DO NOT do love triangles but I trusted Aly to make this right, so I went on and THIS IS NOT A LOVE TRIANGLE. It’s more about two people being in love with each other at the wrong time.

Jeremy ‘Lark’ is in love with Mira, Mira is in love with Jeremy, but her boyfriend Kurt is who she chose for her reasons. They were all friends, until one night, there weren’t and the poo hit the fan. Mira broke two hearts that night she chose to stay with Kurt, her’s and Larks. And lark..my heart bleed for him in that moment.

When a man hits rock bottom, one of two things happen:

He withers.

Or he thrives.

Now, years have gone by and Mira, you can see has had a horrible time and has always regretted her decision, but now, trouble from her former relationship with Kurt barges into her life, literally, and with her friends life hanging in the balance there is only one person she knows, or hopes will help her.

Lark. Who for the first few years was in such a bad place and then he turned his life around, has a good thing with Guardian Protection agency, an ex, but has two twin girls out of it so hes happy and is not looking to hear from the one person he thought he left in the past. Until she calls.

He undoubtedly is pissed at her, I would be too, and at first refuses to help her, but she whispers his name and all is lost. 

There is a fine line between an alpha male and an asshole and Aly knows that line, hell she might have even invented that line. Lark is both a jerk but sweet and the the interactions between him and Mira are the stuff sighs are made of. 

This is again, why I love Aly Martinez’s work so much. This book had everything, humor, drama, action and aaacction(bedroom).

Well done!

Until You’re Mine (Fighting for Her) Review Post

Published January 22, 2018 by bookbesties


You might’ve heard of me, Shane Knox, the guy who rose quickly through the MMA fighter ranks, only to crash just as fast. No one cares about personal reasons when it comes to losing fights and money. I’m determined to get back to where I was. For you to hear my name again. I’ve finally convinced the owner of Team Domination to take a chance and get me back in fighting—and winning—shape. What I didn’t bargain for is the guy’s spitfire of a daughter. Factor in her two professional-fighter brothers who are acting as my coaches and the fact that my career hangs in the balance, and Brooklyn’s the last girl I should be fantasizing about.

The closer we get, the more I want Brooklyn. The stakes are high, and I know there’s a big chance of both of us getting hurt, but I won’t stop until she’s mine.

Do you want a good book to curl up with after a long day of work??? Look no further, this is that book! Great chemistry, characters, plot lines are a great recipe that I ate up! Brooklyn is back temporarily to help out her dad and brothers with their gym that needs an SOS! It’s there where she meets Shane who has some issues that now has him starting from square one in the MMA world! From the start the chemistry is hot! The banter between these two is flirty and playful! The only thing is it’s kind of forbidden. She is his trainers daughter. With obstacles in the way (overprotective brothers, dad and an ex that has her insecurities making an appearance) it’s hard to think there will be a happy ending for these two! I was a total cheerleader because I fell in love with Shane! Totally worth it! This is a must add to your list! Also can’t wait for the next book in the series!!
