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.

Loud Mouth by Avery Flynn(Review Post)

Published June 22, 2020 by bookbesties

Release Date: June 22


 

I never meant to say a word, not one single word.

But I did.

Now because of something I leaked—without even realizing it—I’ve inadvertently broken up one of the Ice Knights’ most legendary bromances. And worse—I’ve kicked hockey star Ian Petrov’s grumpy level to insane levels of grump.

And what could make it worse? How about the two of us being trapped together in a remote cabin after a massive blizzard. Neither of us can leave. Just us, the snow, his resentment, and OMG sexual tension so thick it would take a snowplow to break through it.

I’ve got to get out of here before I do something even dumber than I’ve already done and kiss the sexy with his misplaced anger and perfect pecs. That would be the worst, the absolute worst. But… would it be terrible if we gave in? Just a little? It’s not like we’re ever going to have to spend time together again. 

Until the next morning when we’re told we have to play chummy for the press until this news cycle blows over.

You will enjoy the latest from the Ice Knight family when you meet Ian and Shelby who are both a perfect match. Shelby finds herself at a cabin booked by her friend Lucy to get away from the drama of her leaking out some info that leads to a bestie breakup between two head players. Ian decides after finding out a bombshell that his best friend and fellow player has been hiding, that it is the perfect time to hideaway and disconnect for a few. Well life can sometimes have different plans. Ian does not trust Shelby after she let out information that has caused this drama in his life and now he finds himself in close quarters with the Loud Mouth of media.  Sparks fly when these two have no other choice than to face each other and try to make amends.

 Shelby is spunky and independent but a true sweetheart.  She truly has no ill intentions or agendas. I loves her strong character.  Ian was a big broody hockey player with a heart of gold.  He is trying to live in his own shadow and not of his dad’s who was a hockey great and currently also a jerk.These two had major sparks that would melt the Ice. Their first meeting at the beginning of the book is hilarious and it continues through the whole book. This was a great read from Avery as always.

Published June 12, 2020 by bookbesties
Release Date: June 4
Charlie Harrington is a respectable man. Mayor to his small, mountain town. Successful attorney. Dotting single father. After one mishap in the past, he avoids scandal. Making everyone happy is his goal. He’s nothing but content…and a bit boring. Then one morning, he finds a beautiful woman in his bedroom, and his world turns upside down. His good guy side suddenly wants to be a little bad.
Janessa Cruz has been both a have and a have-not. Ex-wife to someone famous, she’s now a single mother in hiding. She just wants to go unnoticed. Quietly starting over in her forties is the plan. Only she isn’t certain what she wants. When a misunderstanding brings her face-to-face with the sexy town mayor, she can’t seem to avoid him, and being a little reckless never felt so right. 
 
Another Harrington brother bites the dust, and he’s looking forward to getting all kinds of dirty.

When i was first i introduced to this author it was a fresh breath of air to switch to silver fox reads instead of the college sports romances i was reading.  Since then i have enjoyed reading her books. Now with that being said….. 12% in and i knew this would be a 5 star( mind you all her books have been great), but the feel from the beginning was catching. This is part of the Blue Ridge series and it brings us Charlie who is the Mayor with a daughter and a ex-wife that he grew apart from and stays in Another state. He is not looking for anything serious and is trying to balance being a father and Mayor. Enter Janessa who recently moves to town after a divorce from her sports baby daddy. Janessa just wants to start anew and forget about her ex husband. From the start the way they meet is funny and interesting when Jan is caught in a situation at Charlie house.

I loves Charlie he was alpha with some sweet and spice. He is the perfect book boyfriend. Jan is headstrong single mom and her attraction to Charlie is magnetic. These two cannot stay away from each other. They must deal with ex’s, the town, and their feelings. Jan wants to be able to stand on her two feet before getting mixes in to a relationship but soon the Silver Mayor spell may win out. This book checked all the boxes, Strong character, great story line and all the passion you will need. Great read!

Meet L.B. Dunbar
I’ve been accused of having an over-active imagination. To my benefit, this imagination has created over twenty novels, including the creation of a small-town world (Sensations Collection), rock star mayhem (Legendary Rock Star series), MMA chaos (Paradise Stories), rom-com for the over forty (The Sex Education of M.E.), and a suspenseful island for redemption (The Island Duet). My alter ego, elda lore, creates magical romance through mythological retellings (Modern Descendants). My life revolves around a deep love of reading about fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and strong alpha males. I love a deep belly laugh, a strong hug, and an occasional margarita. My other loves include being mother to four grown children and wife to the one and only.

The Rival Roomies by Piper Rayne (Review Post)

Published May 19, 2020 by bookbesties
Release Date: May 12

I’ve loved him from afar.
 
Though most times he’s only a foot away. 
I’m smart enough to know he’ll never be anyone’s forever.
He checks all the bad boy boxes. 
Tattoos. Check. 
Motorcycle. Check. 
Chip on his shoulder. Check check.
If he wasn’t my neighbor and friend I may have thrown myself at him. Okay, yeah. I wouldn’t. Because guys like Dylan don’t want a woman who writes kid’s math textbooks under him in bed. Instead, I pathetically savor morsels of moments where I have his sole attention.  

 

That was until his archenemy moved in with me. Now suddenly, Dylan’s moving in too and warning off the first guy in a long time who’s showing me interest. Could he finally see me as more than a friend, or am I just a prize to win and show off to his enemy?


Grab Your Copy Here:

 

This was definitely the book that I couldn’t wait for and i was highly excited to see it in my kindle. Dylan and Rian are great friends and secretly have liked each other. Rian doesn’t think that her good girl persona would ever be something Dylan would want. Dylan thinks that Rian is too good for him and he does not want to lose their friendship. What happens when a old friend turned enemy moves in as the new roommate with Rian that has Dylan moving in also. May the best man win.

I loved Dylan with his sexy bad boy persona but inside he is a teddy bear. The relationship between him and Rian is sweet and flirty. You want the issues to just disappear so these two can just be together because they seem so right. Rian is smart and funny and can bake her butt off so what is there not to love? This was a great swoon worthy , friends to lovers romance that will have you smiling all the way.

Bachelor Boss: The Bachelors Club book 2(Review Post)

Published April 10, 2020 by bookbesties
Release Date: April 7 


What is The Bachelors Club?
It’s a gentleman’s club—like the dignified men of the past used to have. Except, we’re not gentleman, and we’re not dignified.
We’re ineligible bachelors, bored, jaded and not looking for relationships. Quite the opposite actually. So committed to being single, we’ve created a high stakes bet to see who can remain single the longest…

 
Four days co-habitating in a shared work space shouldn’t be a big deal. It shouldn’t be distracting. But Spencer Standish saw me puking in a company trash can, and won’t let me live it down. Cheerful, aggravating Spencer, who wants me to fetch her coffee.
As if she’s the boss of me.


And now I’m stuck sharing her office.
Let’s face facts: I can’t be in a relationship; not when there’s a bet to win—not with Spencer, who loves my uncontrollable basset hound, lazy Sundays, and grilled cheese as much as I do. I refuse to fall for her.

 

will be the last Bachelor standing.

This was book two in the Bachelor Club books of three friends who have created a secret society with a bet that we saw created in book one.  In this book I feel like my perception of Phillip was different than most. He seemed funny and lighthearted, class clown type and was not looking for a romance. But he  is set on winning this bet. On the other side Spencer (which i love her name) is funny in a quirky kind of way. She finds herself with a office mate for a couple of days and her attraction for Phillip is high even if he does aggravate her. The banter between these two is sweet and cute. On the outside you feel like these guys are corny for making this society but then you see their stories and its nice to see the tough guys fall in love. This is an office romance must read. I definitely laughed more with this book and cant wait to read the next one!

My Bestie’s Ex by Piper Rayne(Review Post)

Published February 18, 2020 by bookbesties

 

I can’t borrow him.

He’s not a sweater or a skirt.

 

He’s not even her favorite dress—the lucky one she wears on first dates. The one she probably wore on her first date with him.

 

In my defense, I didn’t know who he was. To me, he was a cool, calm, confident stranger. He was perfection for the entire hour and a half train ride while the concrete jungle turned into a rolling green landscape.

 

To an outsider, we probably appeared more friends than hopeful lovers. But my blush came quickly, and his dimples indented with every smile. We definitely shared a spark of what could be.

 

Too bad I didn’t know who he was before I fell for him, because he can’t be mine.

Piper Rayne starts off a new series and of course it’s a win. This duo work well together and really know how to warm us up and really bring us in to feel like we are part of the clan. I love the side characters which of course gets you excited for the next books in the series.
 I was a bit hesitant because of the title and thought okay this is different. One, I love The Mancini family so of course I enjoyed Blanca. Loyal and a breath of fresh air. Ethan is a bit hard to pin at first but he resists the attraction between himself and Blanca. Then when you think you are on cloud 9 the wrench is thrown into the mix and there are some decisions to be made and that HEA is in jeopardy. Overall I enjoyed meeting the rooftop crew the banter is funny and you can tell everyone has a great bond. I can’t wait to see more especially Rian book!

Confessions of a Naughty Nanny by Piper Rayne(Review Post)

Published January 8, 2020 by bookbesties

 

When a famous music producer moves to Lake Starlight it can’t just be a coincidence. It’s the universe helping to move things along in the right direction so that Griffin Thorne can discover me.

I have to confess—I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Confession #1: I may have overhead that he was in search of a nanny. What can I say? My brother has a big mouth.

Confession #2: It’s possible I helped along the assumption that I had nanny experience. Hey, babysitting my nieces and nephew counts, right?

Confession #3: There’s a good chance I oversold my qualifications. But my Grandma Dori backed me up, so it’s not completely my fault.

And it worked. He hired me. Only for me to find out that he left the business.

 

I guess it’s on to Plan B.

 

When he accidentally overhears me singing, I expect nothing from him. Then he asks to work with me on a song for our town’s Founder’s Day Parade and it feels like a dream come true. Until…

 

Confession #4: I’ve fallen for him.

First let’s talk about I love in the Bailey series the titles of confessions with each book. This one of course is about Phoenix who is the younger of the Bailey children and also a twin. Aspiring singer Phoenix has been trying to get a meet n greet with Griffin Thorne who whatever he touches turns to gold.

Only issue is one roadblock in the form of her brother who refuses to introduce them. Well between a chance meeting and Grandma Dori to cement a deal Phoenix becomes the Nanny to Griffin child. Yep a Nanny I mean babysitting nieces and nephews counts as experience right? Well when she finds out that Griffin is no longer in the business it is time to come up with a plan B.

Well plans sometimes don’t go the way we want them to. I am a live of the Bailey family series and that is the work of how personable these characters are. Every time I read a book from this series it makes me want to go visit Lake Starlight and hang out with this magnetic family. I did have a moment where I wanted to shake both characters but that is besides the point. Again always a great read when reading anything from this author. I always mourn when I get to the end but there was a bonus epilogue that I loved. Also be warned that you won’t want to miss the last couple pages that will clue you in on the next Bailey book. I will be patiently waiting(not so patiently lol) for the next sibling.

BLURB

SHANE MILLER SLEEP DIARY:

Went to bed at: Late.

How long it took to fall asleep: Forever. I have insomnia. Duh.

Number of caffeinated beverages you had consumed: Zero. Thanks for advising me to quit!

My stress level is off the charts.

I can’t sleep right on a normal day, and lately my days are filled with the best kind of chaos.

My ex-wife and husband number two are filming in Poland for three months,

so I’m turning down movie parts to focus on the most important role of my life—

impossibly charming and somewhat capable young single dad.

My son won’t stop asking questions.

My daughter won’t brush her teeth unless I sing her showtunes.

Our regular nanny quit.

The only person I could trust to hire as a temp nanny is my best friend’s sister.

If Mary Poppins and Bill Murray had a baby it would be Willa.

Fresh out of grad school and beautifully weird.

She hates my movies, and my kids adore her.

I couldn’t sleep last night because she wasn’t here.

Turns out I can’t sleep unless she’s in my house now.

Turns out she’s what’s been missing from my life all along.

If my friend had any idea what I want to do to his gorgeous troublemaker of a sister,

he would smother me with a pillow.

The chances of us succeeding as a couple are about as good as that little indie movie

that I made being a huge hit.

But it’s a chance I’m going to take.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing from a Canadian university and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn’t allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

Demise of a Self-Centered Playboy by Piper Rayne (Review Post)

Published November 26, 2019 by bookbesties

 

 

You might be wondering how you’ll know when your playboy ways are coming to an end. For some it might be an unexpected pregnancy (ahem… you know who), for others it might be finally landing the one woman you’ve always wanted (cough… I won’t mention any names). For me, it was the death of my mentor and the subsequent reading of their will.

 

The signs were there, they always are. But I didn’t notice them until it was too late, and my demise was complete.

 

Demise Sign #1– You find yourself thrust into the land of responsibility and you don’t immediately hightail it out of town.

 

Demise Sign #2– Despite being stuck with the world’s biggest Jekyll & Hyde, some sadistic part of you actually enjoys spending time with her.

 

Demise Sign #3– Your family suddenly stops wanting to weigh in on every decision in your life.

 

Demise Sign #4– Somehow you end up being the voice of reason in your tumultuous partnership.

 

Demise Sign #5 –You start thinking of other people before yourself.

 

Demise Sign #6– You agree to put yourself in the middle of an Alaskan reality TV show that has both of you sleeping in the same tent. 

 

Demise Complete.

20 stars? All the stars???

Okay, every book I say ‘oh this is my favorite’ and then they come out with the next book and boom I have a new favorite. Denver is the twin brother to Rome from a previous book in the Bailey series and he is a known playboy with a adventure side. He is a bush pilot and has been helping his friend Chip with some of the adventures he does for his company. Now after some life changes we find Denver and Chip’s daughter Cleo to now be co owners of Lifetime Adventures. Well so many questions like can they both be serious and pull this company together? Will either one of them pay attention to what is sparking between each other? Can Cleo tame the bad boy of Lake Starlight? Well I must say the title speaks volumes. I thought I was excited for Rome but ladies Denver was unexpected and melted my heart with every chapter. I loved Cleo spunk and her dialogue with Denver. Again I can’t say it enough how these ladies write these stories and you just want to be part of this family. So many laughs and I love the dynamic. It is a sure winner every time. There are some moments that my heart breaks for Cleo. Her and Denver are much alike in ways and seeing them navigate life and trying to see if they fit was a great ride. There are not enough stars! My favorite series from this Author!

Lip Smacker By Alison Bailey(Review Post)

Published November 26, 2019 by bookbesties

41oTjDlH13L (1)

Logan Heath was the sweetest and most beautiful boy I had ever seen. He was popular, smart, and the star quarterback of Fort Johnson High. Every girl in school followed him around in hopes of getting his attention. I was no different, except that I admired Logan from afar. With him being a superstar junior and me being an awkward freshman at a new school, our coupling was a mere pipe dream.
Implementing my top-notch investigating skills I learned from reading The Nancy Drew Mysteries, I followed Logan’s life from high school through his college career, and then some. Fearing that my stalker-ish tendencies were becoming more of a mental health issue, I purposely lost track of him five years ago. I admit since that time I have thought of Logan. And when I say thought I mean he has popped into one or forty R-rated dreams of mine.
The day he walked into my bakery, butterflies fluttered in my stomach, tingles tingled my skin, and a sequence of R-rated dreams flashed through my head. But I was no longer that awkward teenager, too scared to speak to him. I had grown into a confident woman. A woman who wanted to admire Logan Heath up close and personal. Unfortunately, from the very beginning, Logan wanted something from me that I was not willing to give him.

OUT NOW!!!!

Okay,  let me start by warning you that this is a new to me author. I have seen the blurb on my Instagram feed and when I saw a chance to review I said why not? The cover is cute, I love the colors, they are inviting and at first reading the title it made me think of those lip balms that kids loved and they came in different flavors, just me?   Well as you can see I did give it a good rating so I would say yes it was my jam. First paragraph had me a little iffy, there was a lot of monologue and Lip Smacker, yes that is the name because trust me it’s a lot easier than her real name “Elipheleta!” Not only does she have a unique name she is a bakery owner with a witty grandma as her sidekick. She meets “the closer” who is Logan and he works for the investor who is trying to buy everyone out! Logan also happens to be the football god from her high school who she continually spent some of her high school years drooling over. The crush is still there and as much as she wants to hate him the attraction for her is there. Well folks he is here to woo her out of her building that is if Lip doesn’t give him a run for his money! It’s cute and she is so random and funny pretty sure that is why I really enjoyed this book. It made me laugh and I was mesmerized to keep turning the pages. Baked goods, laughter, a little sadness and some sexy scenes are a great recipe for a hit!
