Beauty Tempts the Beast by Lorraine Heath(Review Post)

Published October 1, 2020 by bookbesties

Lorraine Heath ends her bestselling Sins for All Seasons series with the hero readers have been waiting for!

She wants lessons in seduction

Althea Stanwick was a perfect lady destined to marry a wealthy lord, until betrayal left her family penniless. Though she’s lost friends, fortune, and respectability, Althea has gained a scandalous plan. If she can learn to seduce, she can obtain power over men and return to Society on her terms. She even has the perfect teacher in mind, a man whose sense of honor and dark good looks belie his nickname: Beast.

But desire like this can’t be taught

Benedict Trewlove may not know his parentage but he knows where he belongs—on the dark side of London, offering protection wherever it’s needed. Yet no woman has ever made such an outrageous request as this mysterious beauty. Althea is out of place amongst vice and sin, even if she offers a wicked temptation he can’t resist. But as the truth of his origin emerges at last, it will take a fierce, wild love to overcome their pasts.

Lorraine Heath must have heard our prayers because this is it!  The finale of the A Sin for All Seasons series is all about the mysterious Beast Trewlove.  Throughout this series we have come to know and love each of the Trewlove siblings as well as the people they let into their hearts.  From Mick to Fancy and now to Beast this crew of bastards, raised by the same woman in the slums of London show what it means when they say the ties with the family you choose can be stronger than the family you are born into.  Knowing the circumstances of their start in life only makes the amazing things they have accomplished in their lives that much more incredible.  This theme continues in this final book where we get to meet and know the notorious Beast Trewlove and see what makes him who he is and just where he fits in the Trewlove family.  

As a lady born into high society, Althea Stanwick would have never imagined that she would find herself working as a bar maid or that she would ever consider becoming a “kept woman”.  But after a scandal involving her father sees her and her brothers penniless and ostracized by the society to which they once belonged that is exactly where she has ended up.  The only problem is she has no clue on how to be seductive or draw a man’s intrigue.   For her plans for the future to work she not only needs to learn these skills, but she needs to learn them quickly and be the best at them.   Who better to teach her than the dark and dangerous proprietor of a successful brothel?  

Sure, Beast Trewlove has earned a reputation that goes along with his name, and sure he owns a brothel, but he didn’t come by either of them for any reason other than insuring the safety of himself and the women who work for him when they could not protect themselves.  In fact, he hates prostitution and he has made a plan to help all of the girls working in his brothel get respectable jobs so he can close up shop and find a new venture.  If only he could find a proper lady, who may or may not be down on her luck, who could teach the girls the expectations of high society and help them polish their rough manners he is sure his plan would be a success.   It is with this in mind that he makes a proposal to the beautiful, but obviously out of place, siren working as a bar maid at his sister’s pub.  Will he get the deal he was expecting, or will her counter proposal bring the Beast to his knees?

As you all know I LOVED this series and I am sad to see it end but I am beyond happy that it ended with us knowing Beast.  I adored Beast and Althea to the point where I can say this was my favorite book in the series.  I really hope all of you enjoy it as much as I did.

My Kind of Earl by Vivienne Lorret(Review Post)

Published October 1, 2020 by bookbesties

USA Today bestselling author Vivienne Lorret continues her charming new trilogy with a bluestocking whose search for information on the mating habits of scoundrels has her stumbling upon the missing heir to an earldom… in the London underworld.

Jane Pickerington never intended to start a brawl in a brothel. She only wanted to research her book. Yet when her simple study of scoundrels goes awry, she finds herself coming to the rescue of a dark, enigmatic stranger… who turns out to be far more than an average rake out for a night of pleasure. He’s positively wild!

Only the most feral and cunning could have survived foundling homes and work houses. Orphaned as an infant, Raven never had another name. At least… not until he meets her. Now he’s face-to-face with the one person who recognizes the strange birthmark on his arm and can reinstate him to his blue-blooded birthright.

All at once, Raven’s life takes a turn. His knowledge of dark alleys and gaming hells never prepared him for gilded ballrooms. So Jane becomes his tutor. Yet, the more lessons in decorum she offers, the more this untamed scoundrel wants to teach her all the ways to be wicked.

STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND GO READ THIS BOOK!

  I was already a fan of this author before, but seriously, this book made me fall in love with her all over again!  After reading the first book in The Mating Habits of Scoundrels series and finding my most relatable character ever, I was slightly worried about how book number 2 would hold up.  WOW was I wrong to worry.  Don’t get me wrong, Winnie will always be my spirit animal, but Jane’s book just pushed its way into my top 5 favorite reads from 2020.  Jane was such a fun character to read and get to know that I can only imagine how much fun she was create and grow.   This book had me literally laughing out loud one minute then holding my breath in anticipation the next, fighting back tears of sympathy on one page and eagerly championing hope on the next, it is a page turner through and through.  

Jane Pickerington will stop at nothing to answer a question once she sets her mind to it.  Her overly analytical, scientific, brain just won’t give her any peace until she has solved the mystery behind what ever it is.  So, it is no wonder that doing field research for the guidebook on scoundrels she is writing, with her friends, lands her in a precarious situation, well more than one if we’re counting.  One such situation just so happens to cross her paths with the perfect research specimen.  A rake who not only gives in to his baser needs, he is driven by them, or so she thinks.  

When he headed to Moll’s brothel that night and saw a debutant climbing into a window from the alley, Raven should have left well enough alone.  But his curiosity got the better of him as did the smoking pink candle she lit on her way out of the same window after creating mayhem out on the main floor.  Determined to find out who she was and force her to turn his skin back to a normal shade the last person he expected to meet was a clever bluestocking who would turn his whole world upside down.

I am eager to see how Vivienne Lorret lets the rest of this series play out and to see if the girl’s book will ever get completed, but really, I am most eager to see if the next book will be as good or better than its predecessors.  The wait for book 3 is going to be a true test of patience as I am so addicted to this series.  I can’t wait to see what you all think of it too.

All Scot and Bothered by Kerrigan Byrne(Review Post)

Published October 1, 2020 by bookbesties

All Scot and Bothered is the second book in the stunning Devil You Know series by USA Today bestselling author Kerrigan Byrne!

They are a dangerous duke, a fierce lord, and an infamous earl—dark, bold, brave men who know exactly what they want. And there is only one woman who can bring them to their knees…

He is first and foremost—at everything. A man who’s made his own way through ruthless cunning and sheer force of will. A strong and imposing Scot who can turn on the charm but does not suffer fools. His title: Lord Chief Justice of the High Court. His name: Cassius Gerard Ramsay. His mission: To investigate the goings-on at London’s most notorious gaming hell, owned and operated by one of the most intriguing and desirable women he’s ever met.

IN THIS GAME OF LOVE, THE RULES DO NOT APPLY

Cecelia Teague was an orphan facing a rather dire future—until a secret benefactor from her mother’s scandalous past swept into her life. Sent to a prestigious boarding school and later to university, Cecelia believed high society was at her fingertips…Then, from out of nowhere, she became the inheritor of a gambling establishment. Now Cecelia must live two lives: one as a proper lady who finds herself undeniably drawn to Lord Ramsay and the other as a savvy gaming hell owner trying to save her business from the very same man. He has no idea she is both women…and Cecelia would like to keep it that way. But what happens when consuming passion and escalating danger threaten to reveal the truth?

“With the Devil You Know series, Byrne once again delivers the beautifully nuanced characters and seductive storytelling her readers have come to expect.”—Booklist

This is the first book by Kerrigan Byrne that I am reviewing for all of you, however it is in no way the first book by her that I have had the pleasure of reading.  I first heard of this author while I was attending my first book convention.  As I was meeting authors and told them what genera I read and review they all kept bringing up her name, so naturally I felt that if her books are on the minds of all of the authors I am so in love with, I would be insane not to see what all the buzz was about.  I read her entire Victorian Rebels series and instantly knew I would jump at the chance to review her work for all of you if I got the opportunity.   That opportunity is now, with this new series, and this book.  Sadly this book is number 2 in the series ( no worries, I will read and review book 1 for all of you as soon as possible, even though it has been out for a while), but honestly if it wasn’t printed on the cover I would have never known it had a predecessor.   The first word that comes to mind when I think of this book is “thrilling”.  It truly takes you on an emotional roller coaster from its first paragraph in the prologue straight to its last period.  I loved every second of it!     

Cecilia Teague had a rough start in life but seeing her now enjoying all the riches life has to offer, you would never know it was only thanks to an unknown benefactor who rescued her many years ago.  Little did she know that when she inherited a casino, she also instantly inherited the wrath of the Lord Chief Justice of the High Court.  She also didn’t know that by becoming the owner of the casino she would face the challenge of a lifetime: juggling her new business obligations and her life as a member of society while making sure the two worlds NEVER cross.  But with the help of her best friends she may find a way to combine the two worlds and win the favor of the Lord Chief Justice.

Cassius Gerard Ramsey, Lord Chief Justice to the High Court, has made it his mission to find evidence of illegal activity so he can shut down London’s most notorious gaming hell.  That is until the alluring owner of said gaming hell finds herself the primary target of someone who is determined to kill her.  As determined as he is to shut down her business he is just as determined to keep her safe from harm and to discover who is trying to kill her.  Will the time he spends investigating and protecting her open his eyes to the true corruption in the world and soften his resolve towards her or will he finally have enough evidence to shut her down for good? 

I really, really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read and tell you about both books number 1 and number 3 as soon as I can.   

Drew by Amanda Shelley (Review Post)

Published October 1, 2020 by bookbesties



Release Date: September 29

My heart races, palms sweat, and knees go weak. 
 
I’ve never seen anyone like Drew in a science lab. He’s made me a firm believer in chemistry existing outside a textbook.
 
Then his ego shows up.
 
Nope. No, thank you. Moving on. I mean… who has an entourage in college?
 
When our professor announces we’ll be stuck as lab partners, I nearly lose my mind – and not in a good way. 
 
I can’t afford the type of distractions Drew brings.
 


Grab Your Copy Here!

I always love a college sports romance and this one didn’t disappoint. This story is an example of not going judging a book by its cover. When Drew first sees Abby he thinks of her as a nerd and the perfect lab partner for class. When Abby first meets Drew she feels like he is a jock and cocky. When they both get to know each other they start to see that they actually have more in common than they think. Its sweet to see the transition between these two. Very well written with supporting characters that you will love. This was a win for me .

Force:A Driven World Novel by Emma Louise
 

 This second chance romance set in K Brombergs Driven World which I have read before and definitely a fan. I am new to Emma Louise but I have become a fan. High school sweethearts who thought they would be forever. Tucker uses his driving as an outlet and he is happy to have his love Brooke by his side until one night changes for them and sets them both on different paths.

After many years Brooke moves away from home for a new job. She has worked hard to get where she is but has never forgotten about her first love. Tucker has come a long way in his career as a driver and is not fully living. One night changes for both of them when they come face to face with each other. When they see each other you see the static between them and you know that there will be a struggle! The chemistry between these two is real and i love seeing them interact. Has too much time passed? Are they too different from their past? I definitely enjoyed and it was a win for me. Strong characters and a strong Heroine was a definite win for me.

Rules for Dating Your EX by Piper Rayne(Review Post)

Published September 19, 2020 by bookbesties
 
 
 
Release Date: September 1

 

If your ex arrives in your hometown eighteen months after you walked out on him while you were eight months pregnant, follow this short list of rules before you give him a second chance.  
 
Rule #1 – Don’t stand in the way of your brothers who want to rough him up.
 
Rule #2 – Don’t meet him for coffee and agree to allow him to meet your daughter.
 
Rule #3 – Don’t drool when your daughter falls asleep on his chest for the first time. It’s just your ovaries talking.
 
Rule #4 – Don’t let him hold your hand. While we’re at it, no hugs, no kisses on the cheek… just no physical contact in general. That only leads to remembering better times.
 
The last one is the most important…
 
Rule #5 – When you find yourself needing someone’s help and you’re tired of always asking your family, don’t let him be the one who’s there for you. 
 
Because all those good qualities of his will suck you right back in and you’ll have no chance of fighting your feelings, especially now that he’s ready to be a father to your daughter.

I have been awaiting this book for awhile and I was nervous and excited all at the same time. I have read each book of The Bailey family and I have loved each one. It’s been a great series and I wanted to savor this last book in the series. I always think man is this next book better? Piper Rayne never disappoints! Here we have the story of Sedona and Jamison who we have seen sneak peaks of in the other books and finally we get to see how their story goes. Sedona has come home after leaving Jamison and hoping that he would clean up his life. After some time Jamison crashes a family event to try to win his family back. He sees his daughter and a very pregnant Sedona!!! Now he must try to see if he can mend his relationship with his daughter and show her some love.
  Sedona is one strong independent woman and she has been through some drama including leaving the love of her life and making the decision she thought was best when she was pregnant. Now she is trying to work through life with a toddler and navigate her overwhelming family. She named her daughter Palmer and she is deaf. Palmer wins your heart from the start. I love the bond she develops with her dad. At first I was team Sedona all the way! Jamison once you hear his story and all of the demons he has worked through you slowly start to open your heart for him. It crushes him to see Sedona pregnant as he wanted to be together again. I was rooting for them all the way. This book has all the feels and deals with alcohol abuse and child with an impairment and it will have you crying and laughing! Sad to see the end of the Bailey’s but glad this book was a great end!

Someone to Romance by Mary Balogh (The Westcott Series Book ) Review Post

Published August 25, 2020 by bookbesties

51ivSKVF06L

Love comes when you least expect it in this captivating new novel in the Westcott Regency romance series from New York Times bestselling author Mary Balogh.

Lady Jessica Archer lost interest in the glittering excitement of romance after her cousin and dearest friend, Abigail, was rejected by the ton when her father was revealed to be a bigamist. Now that she is twenty-five, however, Jessica decides it is time to wed. Though she no longer believes she will find true love, she is still very eligible. She is, after all, the sister of Avery Archer, Duke of Netherby.

Jessica considers the many qualified gentlemen who court her. But then she meets the mysterious Gabriel Thorne, who has returned to England from the New World to claim an equally mysterious inheritance. Jessica considers him completely unsuitable, especially when, while they are still barely acquainted, he announces his intention to wed her.

When Jessica guesses who Gabriel really is, however, and watches the lengths to which he will go in order to protect those who rely upon him, she is drawn to his cause–and to the man.

Grab the Westcott Series  HERE

I am so addicted to this series, I need it to never end!  I love these characters, this family, and this book.  I absolutely adore how strong and independent Jessica is, all while she embraces her life as a prominent Lady of society and without compromising her new found sense of self.   After making the decision to marry this season with or without love, her steadfast refusal to be viewed as simply a title with proper training has endeared her to my heart forever.  I’m so very glad that the author wasn’t afraid to allow Jessica to have and acknowledge her darker feelings of jealousy, betrayal, and being left behind (all of which are natural, once you know her back story) rather than setting the time line of the book ahead far enough that it could be assumed she had moved past them.  Seeing that facet of a character’s personality truly makes them stand out in my eyes.   In a series such as this, with so many characters it is Mary Balogh’s ability to make each one unique that keeps readers coming back for more.

 Lady Jessica Archer, daughter of the Duke of Netherby, is determined that this is the season she will really look for a husband.  Sure she has had several admirers through the years but none of them have ever stirred romantic feelings in her heart.   Ready to cut her losses she is prepared to view the issue as a business arrangement rather than one based on love, or so she thought until a good-looking stranger  tells her he intends to marry her without even knowing more than just her name and tile.  It is in that instance that she discovers how much she truly desires a romantic match and is unwilling to settle for less.  Will the stranger heed her words and be able to romance her to the alter, or will the season’s charming new comer win her hand?

Gabriel Thorne, born Gabriel Rochford, the presumed dead Earl of Lyndale, has returned from the grave (well actually from America) to claim his title and find a countess.  Not just any countess, but one who has poise, grace, and the training to help him run his estate.  Only one woman checks off all the boxes on his list of requirements and he will do whatever it takes to make her his bride.  Much to his surprise when he tells her of his intentions she gives him a piece of her mind and tells him he needs to romance her before she will even entertain the idea.  Will he be able to show her the romance she needs to convince her to marry him, or will his family drama and another suitor chase her away?

Another great addition to the Wescott Novel series that I hope you all enjoy as much as I did.

Emerald Blaze : A Hidden Legacy Novel by Ilona Andrews(Review Post)

Published August 25, 2020 by bookbesties

9780062878366_22f83

Ilona Andrews, #1 New York Times bestselling author, continues her spellbinding series set in the Hidden Legacy world where magic controls everything—except the hearts of those who wield it.

As Prime magic users, Catalina Baylor and her sisters have extraordinary powers—powers their ruthless grandmother would love to control. Catalina can earn her family some protection working as deputy to the Warden of Texas, overseeing breaches of magic law in the state, but that has risks as well. When House Baylor is under attack and monsters haunt her every step, Catalina is forced to rely on handsome, dangerous Alessandro Sagredo, the Prime who crushed her heart.

The nightmare that Alessandro has fought since childhood has come roaring back to life, but now Catalina is under threat. Not even his lifelong quest for revenge will stop him from keeping her safe, even if every battle could be his last. Because Catalina won’t rest until she stops the use of the illicit, power-granting serum that’s tearing their world apart.

Grab Hidden Legacy’s 1-5 Here

I have long since been a huge fan of the hidden legacies novels and when I read the fist book in this some-what spin off with Catalina’s story I was all in. The first book had me wanting more and was ready for the adventure and see Cat stumble gracefully through her newfound head of hour role and also maybe fall in love. This book picks up around six months or so after Alessandro, the man she decided to give her heart to, left her and she is picking up the pieces of her life the best way she knows how; by doing all the work.

The things that I loved about this book and always is there is never a real long slow down, there is always action or something interesting happening on paper which kept me interested. The banter between her and Alessandro, yes he’s back, is nice and they play off each other nicely. With that being said, what I didn’t like about this story is that the relationship seemed strained. To a certain degree it was, for reasons, but I also didn’t “feel’ the emotional connection to their relationship until the end, literally the last few pages. I also felt at time that Catalina’s thoughts and words were jumbled. Like she would be saying something and then reveal something that came out of left field seemingly, but tied in at some point to the story. I found myself feeling closer to Alessandro than Cat, which is a rarity, but still it kinda of threw me. The story was still enjoyable and I will continue with the series.

Sparks by Wendy Higgins Release Day Blitz

Published August 25, 2020 by bookbesties

 Today I am helping share the release of SPARKS by Wendy Higgins!  Scroll below to check out my review!

SPARKS is Wendy’s debut release in the Contemporary Romance genre! It is a Standalone HEA!

SPARKS WILL FLY

 

51cqAPR-HhL._SY346_

From New York Times bestseller, Wendy Higgins, comes her first contemporary adult romcom. Please sit back and keep your seatbelts fastened because this will be a bumpy ride.
Enjoy your flight.

At twenty-four, Harlow Robinson has run headfirst into a quarter-life crisis. Her high school girlfriends have dropped like flies, one wedding after another, forcing her into panic mode. It’s fight or flight time, and flight wins—literally. She breaks off a loveless engagement with her childhood sweetheart and abandons a teaching degree to become a flight attendant for Omega Skies.

Now Harlow is living her best glamorous, single life as a self-proclaimed sky muffin, at least that’s how it appears from the outside. But 3:00AM wakeup calls and nights alone in hotels make the days blend into a blur of loneliness. When her seven roommates sign her up for the dating app Sparks, Harlow finds herself navigating an entirely new lifestyle with more men than she can handle.

What’s a girl to do? Date them all, of course.

 

In this first ever Adult Contemporary romance from Bestselling author, Wendy Higgins brings us a funny, romantic, coming of age book.

 When you mix a young, impressionable adult with being a flight attendant, having crazy roommates and a dating app, you get a perfect mix for a great setting to an amazing story. 

Harlow Robinson is fresh out of college and on the heels of all her other friends seemingly getting their life together she decides to chuck it all, including her fiance/high-school sweetheart who she didn’t really love, and become a flight attendant.  

Harlow, who believes in all things love is going along and enjoying her job and her seven, yes seven, roommates when they decided to sign her up for a dating app. Add in her male best friend, a handsome soldier she connects with on a flight and the ups’ and downs of online dating, what could go wrong right?

This story was so real in the pitfalls of online dating. I am here to say that Harlow’s experience was very, very accurate which made her that much more relatable to me. I also related to her as she is sweet and wants to see the good in everyone even when they are not deserving of that. The hope/excitement/heartbreak journey that Harlow takes, I FELT on a personal level. When the author can take you and your emotions along for the same ride as the character is huge for me.  When they laughed, I laughed out loud and when Harlow cried, I cried hard. That, I feel, Is the sign of a good book.

I am excited to see more of the Omega Skies flight attendants journey’s into love!

Excerpt

He shifted towards me. “This is all new to me, too, Skye.”

A sobering thought crossed my mind. The one that had been plaguing me since the woods. “Do you want this, Remy?”

The corner of his mouth hitched up for a second as he looked at me. Slowly, he raised a hand, tracing the curve of my jaw. I shivered, remembering the feel of his hands stroking when I was a wolf.

This was so much better.

He inched even closer. His breath, minty and warm, fanned over my face. His eyes tracked the movements of his fingers hungrily.

“Yeah,” he answered roughly, thickly. “I want this. I want you.” He dipped his head and covered my mouth with his.

Fire ignited in me the second Remy’s lips touched mine, soft but demanding all at once. His hands settled on my hips, pulling me closer. The smell of him from earlier in the evening, pine and soap and something that was entirely Remy, filled my senses.

His large hands almost spanned my waist, his fingers flexing against the soft material of my yoga pants. His tongue teased the seam of my lips until I opened my mouth on a gasp, letting him in.

My hands had been clenched into fists on his chest, the fabric of his t-shirt bunched in my grip. I relaxed my hold now, letting my hands slide over the hard muscle and up around his neck, pressing my chest flush against his.

Flames licked through my blood, and I was sure I was going to combust any second.

I was one hundred percent okay with death by kissing.
