Order of Protection by Lexi Blake (Review Post)

Published June 21, 2018 by bookbesties

A sexy and suspenseful new contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake where love and law entwine for a conviction of the heart.

To high-end defense attorney Henry Garrison, Win Hughes is a woman he met during one of the most trying times of his life. She’s soft and warm, and he finds solace in their brief relationship. But Win has a secret. She’s actually Taylor Winston-Hughes–born to one of the wealthiest families in the country, orphaned as a child by a tragic accident. Win moves in the wealthiest circles, but her lavish lifestyle hides her pain.

When her best friend is murdered in the midst of a glittering New York gala, Win’s charged with the crime, and the only person in the world she wants to see is Henry.

Henry is shocked at the true identity of his lover, but he can’t reject the case. This trial could take his new firm into the stratosphere. Still, he’s not getting burned by Win again. And yet every turn brings them closer together.

As the case takes a wild turn and Win’s entire life is upended, she must look to the people she’s closest to in order to find a killer. And Henry must decide between making his case and saving the woman he loves…

I have enjoyed Lexi Blake books before so and I was excited for this new read.
Henry is the”monster of Manhattan”, the shark of a lawyer who is recovering from being a alcoholic. He went through a public divorce and all he wants is to get away to his hometown. He catches Win, a reality show star who is trying to recover from her demons, literally while she was running on the beach and from that first meeting I could tell I would love this couple.

Two hurt souls trying to heal each while not harboring secrets from each other plus an electrical storm and you get two weeks of magic and bliss that they both needed so desperately. But now, the vacation is over and it’s back to the real world with the agreement to go their separate ways but the universe has other plans for them. Forced together again when Win is accused of murder the sparks pick right back up where they thought they left them as Henry tries to keep it professional between them and clear her name, all of that along with a twist that you don’t see coming this book was a winner!

I Loved it, this was another hit Lexi!!!

Knocked Up by Stacey Lynn(Review Post)

Published June 5, 2018 by bookbesties

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes baby in a baby carriage. Just not necessarily in that order. . . .
 
Braxton: I should probably be dead or in jail right now. Instead, thanks to some tough love, I worked my ass off and now I own a string of tattoo parlors throughout the Pacific Northwest. And yet the one thing I’ve always wanted—a family—still seems out of reach. When my best friend gets married, I’m just hoping to blow off some steam with the super-hot maid of honor. But after Cara Thompson tracks me down to tell me she’s pregnant, she’s more surprised than I am when I tell her I’m all in.
 
Cara: For the first time in my life, I’m living for myself—not for my parents and their ridiculous expectations. I gave up on my MBA, dropped out of the Ivy League, and moved to Portland to pursue my dream of becoming an artist. And what’s the first thing I do? Get knocked up. For a tatted-up sex god, Braxton Henley seems way too eager to “be there for me.” Is this guy serious? Maybe. He sure is patient. Because he won’t back down until I admit what I know in my heart: that our one night standmight’ve led me to the one.

Cara is insecure at times but I loved the relationship that blossomed between these two! This was a win for me all the way!

How to Forget a Duke (Misadventures in Matchmaking)

Published May 22, 2018 by bookbesties

51Cwjz2ZssL._SY346_

The Bourne Matrimonial Agency has one rule: Never fall in love with the client. A simple thing to remember . . . unless you’re a matchmaker with amnesia.

The Duke of Rydstrom requires a wife. Preferably one with a large fortune and a complete lack of curiosity. The last thing he needs is a meddling matchmaker determined to dig up his dark family secrets.

All Jacinda wants is to find a bride for a duke. How hard could that be? He’s handsome, enigmatic . . . and hiding something. She’s sure of it. Determined to discover what it is, she travels to his crumbling cliffside estate. Yet, by the time she washes up on his beach, she can no longer remember who she is or why the duke is so familiar to her. All she knows is that his kisses are unforgettable—and she intends to use every skill she can to discover what’s in his heart . . .

When Miss Bourne can’t remember what brought her to his ancestral home, Rydstrom intends to keep it that way. Yet as the days pass, his true challenge will be safeguarding his secret while resisting this woman who—confound it all—may well be his perfect match.

This is my first RUN READ ADVISORY of 2018! I repeat; RUN AND READ!!!!

  I could not put this book down!  I love every part of it from the setting, to the characters, to the story line.  This book is absolutely going on my top 10 of the year list.  From the surly glower of the duke to the Mr. Lemon’s snout the attention to detail when building the characters of this book made it very easy to see everyone and feel like I actually knew them as the story unfolded.  As you all know I am a sucker for a strong heroine and this one does not disappoint, her tenacity shines through in a manner that makes me see a lot of myself in her.  I am so glad I read this book and I can’t wait to read more from this author.

…will make a prince say yes to her every desire

Forced to leave his home as a boy, famed portraitist Ziyaeddin is secretly the exiled prince of a distant realm. When he first met Libby, he memorized every detail of her face and drew her. But her perfect lips gave him trouble—the same lips he now longs to kiss. When Libby asks his help to hide her feminine identity from the world, Ziyaeddin agrees on one condition: she must sit for him to paint—as a woman. But what begins as a daring scheme could send them both hurtling toward danger…and an unparalleled love.

OUT MAY 29th!!

This book is better than the first of the series that I read!!!! And Libby Shaw has become my second favorite leading lady (only to be beaten by Scarlett O’ Hara)!!!!  Being a paramedic finding a book a HR book about a woman in the medical field doesn’t get any better for me!  Being on this journey with this woman was incredible and inspiring.  Seeing her find a man who supports her so completely on her journey was both exciting and breath taking.  To say I love this book is a vast understatement.  This series just gets better and better with each book and I can’t wait to read the next one.

Too Wilde to Wed(Wildes of Lindow Castle) Review Post

Published May 22, 2018 by bookbesties

OUT MAY 29Th, 2018!!

No one is more surprised than Lord North when he returns from war to find his ex-fiancee in his ancestral home…working as a governess in a sexy, fiery new Wildes of Lindow Castle romance by New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James…

The handsome, rakish heir to a dukedom, Lord Roland Northbridge Wilde—known to his friends as North—left England two years ago, after being jilted by Miss Diana Belgrave. He returns from war to find that he’s notorious: polite society has ruled him “too wild to wed.”

Diana never meant to tarnish North’s reputation, or his heart, but in her rush to save a helpless child, there was no time to consider the consequences of working as a governess in Lindow Castle. Now everyone has drawn the worst conclusions about the child’s father, and Diana is left with bittersweet regret.

When North makes it clear that he still wants her for his own, scandal or no, Diana has to fight to keep from losing her heart to the man whom she still has no intention of marrying.

Yet North is returning a hardened warrior—and this is one battle he’s determined to win.

He wants Diana, and he’ll risk everything to call her his own.

This is the second book in this series that I have read and to say I’m hooked is an understatement.  The men in this family make for great heroes and the women they find themselves in love with are equally as wonderful.  After reading the first book I wondered what happened to Diana and North and if they would find their own happily ever-afters.  This book answers that question and was such a fun read at the same time.  I am becoming a serious Eloisa James fan thanks to this series.  I can’t wait for the next book.

Playboy by Katy Evans

Publication Date: July 29, 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

A brand new contemporary romance from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

It started as a game.

We flirted. We played. Most importantly—we won.

Then I discovered who he was: Gambler. Famous playboy. Silver-eyed player who never plays to lose…

And my best friend’s soon-to-be brother in law, Cullen Carmichael.

He needed a good luck charm, I needed a distraction.

So we made a gamble and set off for Vegas—but pretty soon—I was in too deep.

My heart, soul, and body weren’t supposed to be part of the deal.

But somewhere between big wins and long nights, my house of cards started to tumble.

What was this devil with those piercing eyes doing to me?

I’d given up on love, but the wicked, all-in Cullen Carmichael was upping the ante and wouldn’t stop until he’d won it all.
