SEXY FILTHY BOSS by Piper Rayne(Review Post)!

Published June 11, 2019 by bookbesties
He’s the sexy alpha male in the corner office who goes through assistants faster than free donuts in the breakroom.
I’m the assistant who was chosen to cover for his last fire.

The owner of the company is clear—hook the biggest client in our firm’s history and there’s a partnership for him and a promotion for me. Stipulation—we do it together.

It doesn’t take a tarot card-reading psychic to figure out where our story is headed… late nights, trips out of town, and more than a few awkward moments filled with sexual tension.

No worries though. I pride myself on my willpower. I can totally ignore his sexy grin, his rock-hard body and his dreamy brown eyes. I will not become the woman other women hate.

But it turns out that Enzo Mancini has a lot of layers and if I don’t stop peeling, I’m going to lose everything, including my dignity.


The title speaks for itself! Don’t miss this sexy OFFICE ROMANCE romantic comedy coming June 11th!

“Please. Come on, Mr. Mancini.”
Even I notice how weird that sounds coming from her mouth now that
our working relationship has turned into more of a tenuous friendship. “Enzo.”
“If I call you Enzo, can I pay my share?” She bats her eyes a few
times.
I twist my lips, thinking about it. The taxi driver huffs, annoyed
that we’re holding him up. “Sure.”
“Please, Enzo?” she says, stressing both words.
The sound of her voice saying my name like that spurs images of
her naked on my bed, begging me to fuck her. Her back arched, her delectable
tits prominently on display with her legs spread. I shift in my seat to hide my
growing hard-on.
She drops the forty dollars onto my lap and opens the door,
leaving before I come back to myself. I lift the forty off my half chub,
concocting a plan to get this back to her without her knowing it.
Her voice rings in my head one more time. Please, Enzo?
I might as well admit defeat. Tonight my dreams will be filled
with me, Annie Stewart, and the word please.

Book lovers one-click anything from Piper Rayne, there is no disappointment.

Okay, where to start?

Well the cover is very appealing and I love the colors. 

Lorenzo Mancini(Enzo) is working his way up at the Ad agency that he works at and hopefully will soon become partner of the firm. The thing is poor Enzo cannot keep a assistant to save his life. Enter Annie Stewart who is the assistant to another Ad exec but is roped in to backup Mr. Mancini in order for him to land the big account for Coddle products. Annie is loved by the customer  but struggling to make her boss see that women can make it in this business more than being an assistant to a man.  Enzo and Annie now have to work together in order to land this account and hopefully make Enzo a partner. With the close quarters and attraction simmering, not only are their jobs are at jeopardy but everyone is counting on them for this account. 

 This romance simmered, you could feel the attraction right away but I liked that Annie didn’t fawn all over him and kept her feelings reined in. Enzo definitely showed a side that I was not expecting but thoroughly enjoyed him turning on the charm and the heat. Insatiable is a word I associate when it comes to anything by this author because that’s how I feel! The other two brothers you get a little insight on them and gets you set up for the other two books to come. Again they know how to write up the connections with the families and I want to come over for Sunday dinner please.

Piper Rayne always knows how to write great book boyfriends, again 5 stars is not enough cant wait for the rest of the series.

This is Crazy(Review Post)

Published June 4, 2019 by bookbesties

25be6-this2bis2bcrazy-complete

Zara Stone

All my life, I’ve said I will never date a hockey player. I know better because I’ve seen and lived it all. My father is a hockey god, my brother is the captain of the most successful NHL team in the world, and my brother-in-law also plays in the league. Their lives are complicated, so I went in the opposite direction.
I fell in love with a scholar. But instead of proposing marriage, he broke up with me.
Three months later, I saw his engagement picture on Instagram. I couldn’t let him get away with that. No, it didn’t matter what, I was going to make that man see that I did not need him.

Evan Richards
I was in the running to pass my point record from last year, ready to claim the number one spot in the league. On top of my game, I was riding my career high wave.
Then, Hockey’s Princess, Zara Stone tweeted me. She wanted me to crash her ex’s wedding.
The worst that could happen? A PR nightmare. The best? A fun night with a beautiful woman.
It started out as a game—something I’m good at. Her crazy idea twisted into something I wasn’t looking for, something neither of us wanted.

When push comes to shove, one thing runs through my mind:
This is Crazy. Also, this is crazy right.

Yes, this is crazy…….crazy good!

Okay, first the cover is very appealing and second it’s a sports romance, and third, HOCKEY! I was IN!

Right from the first sentence you will be able to tell that the story will have you engaged. Zara(loved her name) has to deal first with her boyfriend breaking up with and then finds out that he proposes to another female. What would you do? Well social media here she comes and she gets the attention of Evan who is a cocky, uber good hockey player. They meet and the attraction is sizzling. 

I loved all the characters. Her family are hockey greats also and Zara has a twin who always has great one-liners to say! The story flowed easily and it will have you flipping the pages to see if she can get revenge on her ex or will she give in to her attraction to Evan. And Evan, ladies Evan will be your new book boyfriend. He is so sexy, sweet and always has the right words. Trust when I tell you that this book is making me go on a binge reading anything by Natasha! Thanks for the great read.

How to Date a Douchebag: The Lying Hours(Review Post)

Published May 9, 2019 by bookbesties

 

ABRAHAM
DAVIS—Honest Abe to his friends—IS IN OVER HIS HEAD…
He’s a fixer
and a do good-er. The all-knowing, resident “grandfather” on the
wrestling team who everyone relies on to fix their problems. His teammates go
to him for everything; advice, homework, or when they need a sober driver at
three in the morning–whether he likes it or not.
Abe’s
current mission is easy: mend his roommates broken heart by helping him find a
girlfriend on the LoveU app–without getting caught in the lie…
SKYLAR
GABRIEL. IS. OVER. IT.
Over her bad
grades. Over her meddling older brother and his two best friends. And over
dating douchebags. What she wants to know is: where have all the nice guys
gone?
She longs
for a handsome, sweet, and honest guy who can make her laugh. In one last ditch
effort to prove that he exists—Skylar turns to LoveU.
On her worst
day, Skylar has no filter (it’s a miracle she hasn’t been ditched mid-date).
On her best,
she’s as wholesome, and sweet, as pie.
On Thursday?
She matches with Abraham Davis’s roommate.
Skylar
Gabriel is falling for the wrong guy—she just doesn’t realize it yet.
Why?
BECAUSE ABE
DAVIS IS A LIAR.

I was excited to review this book since I have read the rest of the books in the series, and loved them.

Abe Davis is on the wrestling team and also does the bidding for his roommate JB. His roommate is on the Love U app which is the school’s version of Tinder, and he has Abe filtering his matches. Abe comes across Skylar who seems different from the others and right away he is hooked. Skylar is looking for a relationship and after her friends talk up the Love U app she decides to give it a try.

She loves the exchange with JB(aka Abe) on the app but when they both go on a date she is left wondering where is the sweet and funny guy she has been talking to? Abe hates the fact that JB has this great catch but is showing his true jerk qualities. This whole time I am yelling at my kindle because I want Abe to show himself to Skylar but he is feeling some Bro code and keeps quiet until……Skylar finds out that in a way she was Catfished with these two and then the race for Abe to try to redeem himself is on!

I felt Abe was a bit weak at times and felt the ending left a bit to be desired. Overall not my favorite in the series but I am interested in Skylar’s roommates book. This is a great series to read.

Stay by Tia Louise Cover Reveal!

Published May 8, 2019 by bookbesties

 

Cover Design: Shanoff Reads
Cover Photographer: Wander Aguiar

Stephen
Hastings is a control freak.

He’s arrogant. He’s smart as a whip and sexy AF.

He has too much money. He’s bossy, and he’s usually right.

All I saw were his clear blue eyes, tight ass, and ripped torso.

I gladly handed him my V-card that night, ten years ago.

I was so stupid. I swore I’d never be that stupid again…

Emmy
Barton works for a dry cleaner?

Yes, that Emmy Barton—long, blonde hair, bright blue eyes, pretty smile…

Sexy little ass. Smart mouth.

She was the only girl who interested me, but I was leaving to be an officer in
the Navy.

Now
I’m home, running my business. My life is perfectly ordered until I bump into
her, divorced and struggling to make ends meet.

I hate seeing her like this. I hate that she married Burt “The Dick” Dickerson.
What an asshole.

She
says she hates me, but when we fight, it’s all heat and lust.

I won’t leave her this way.

She will let me help her and her son. She will stay…

It’s a thin line between love and hate, and this line is on fire.

(STAY
is a STAND-ALONE enemies-to-lovers, second-chance, marriage of convenience
romance. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

Kiss Me Tonight(Review Post)

Published May 2, 2019 by bookbesties
I had it all.
The Super Bowl rings.
The hot shot TV gig.
Then I got fired.
Now I’m living in
middle-of-nowhere Maine, playing assistant coach to the woman of my nightmares.
Did I mention that she
and her son are my new neighbors?
If you talk to the
locals, they’ll tell you Aspen Levi is the queen of high school football.

But if you ask me, my new head coach is a pain in my left nut sac.

She’s too blonde.
Too peppy.
And way too sexy for my
peace of mind.
Only, one minute we’re
fighting, and the next I can’t keep my hands off her. One hot kiss. One
forbidden touch. I don’t do love but . . .
What I want, I take, and
what I want is Aspen Levi.

This is my second book I have read from this author so I definitely was excited to read this book and hoped that I would enjoy it.

The two characters in this book are in their 30’s so it’s a refreshing change from the young college age romances. Dominic DaSilva is a retired NFL player with many accolades under his belt. He needs away from the limelight and needs to hide after going on a dating show failure. He is hoping that the small town of London will be the right fit. Night one and as he is nursing his beer at the bar he meets Levi Aspen who herself is back in her hometown of London. She is bouncing back from her failed marriage of 15 years. Only good thing is her teenage son.

She finds herself intrigued by this solid, beautiful man sitting in the stool by her. After striking out with Dom she goes home. Well of course life is sometimes not fair. Levi is the new head coach of her high school football team and it so happens that her assistant coach is no other than Coach Dom. Now, one he has to deal with being the Assistant and Levi now has to work alongside this sexy beast . The chemistry with these two is scorching and Levi is funny with her thoughts of being in her 30’s , having a kid and how her body looks and her feelings for this man that is gorgeous and wanted by every lady he looks at. The journey of Dominic DaSilva healing his wounds and allowing himself to try and open up to Levi is beautiful.  Levi was very young when she married her ex husband who was older than her and he controlled every aspect in her house. Dominic challenges her and tries to break down her walls. This is a funny sexy relatable romance that will have you panting one moment and sighing the next. Great read very much enjoyed!

Prince on Paper(Review Post)

Published May 1, 2019 by bookbesties

9780062685582_bbf4a

The Reluctant Royals series returns with a good girl searching for the life that’s not too big, and not too small, and the bad boy prince who might be just right for her.

Nya Jerami fled Thesolo for the glitz and glamour of NYC, but discovered that her Prince Charming only exists in her virtual dating games. When Nya returns home for a royal wedding, she accidentally finds herself up close and personal—in bed—with the real-life celebrity prince who she loves to hate.

For Johan von Braustein, the red-headed step-prince of Liechtienbourg, acting as paparazzi bait is a ruse that protects his brother—the heir to the throne—and his own heart. When a royal referendum threatens his brother’s future, a fake engagement is the perfect way to keep the cameras on him.

Nya and Johan both have good reason to avoid love, but as desires are laid bare behind palace doors, they must decide if their fake romance will lead to a happily ever after.

OUT NOW!!!

This is the second book by this author and from this series I have read, and while like its predecessor it is not a historical romance I thoroughly enjoyed it none the less.  This book was a total run read and every minute of it had a smile on my face.

     Dating games on her phone were Nya Jerami’s window in to the world of romance that she was to self- conscious to enter in real life. Until the wedding festivities of her best friend brought her together with the one man she has had a secret crush on she was never allowed to dream of being loved by anyone but her family.

     Johan von Braustein aka the Tabloid Prince of Liechtienbourg aka Bad Boy Jo-Jo is known for being the life of a party and the paparazzi couldn’t get enough of his wild antics. Too bad for them they only saw the mask of the man he wanted them to see. At his best friend’swedding he finds himself in close proximity with one of the few people who is able to see the man beyond the mask, and it just so happens that he has been crazy about her for a while.

    This book isn’t a historical romance but it absolutely reads like and follows a similar story line to all of my favorite H.R. books.  I really enjoyed seeing Nya find her inner strength and watching Johan shed his Bad Boy persona all as they fall completely in love. I couldn’t put this book down and I hope it is the same for you.
