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!

Bastard Bachelor Society by Sara Ney(Review Post)

Published January 28, 2020 by bookbesties

 

What is the Bastard Bachelor Society?

 

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 

 

We’re so committed to being single, we’ve created a high stakes bet to see who can remain single the longest. Rules are involved. Prizes.

 

Laugh it up, but I’m no loser. 

 

Enemy number one to my single status? My irresistible neighbor, Abbott Margolis. She with her evil cat Desdemona, and Sexy AF pencil skirts. She’s kind and beautiful and hilarious. We can’t get involved, no matter how much her meddling grandmother pushes us together. But if I was going to lose this bet for anyone? It would for Abbott. 

 

Let’s face facts: I’m a bastard, unwilling to settle down. 

 

Especially when there’s a bet to win.

A long time fan of SN books, I was excited to for this new series! So, what happens a when you have a group of friends who are wanting some must have items the others have?

The BBS, better known as the Bastard Bachelor Society.

Brooks is a successful guy post breakup and not looking for love so he gets together with his two buddies to cook up this “society” of bachelors. But little does he know that temptation was right under his nose in the for of Abott , his cute new neighbor. Abott is successful in her life and sassy and independent and thinks her neighbor is cute and the attraction is def there.  Too bad for her the rules are rules and Brooks HAS to be hands off to stay in the BBS.  I really like Abott and how strong of a character she is. Brooks had me yelling at him through my kindle lol but the story flowed well. This will make you root  for HEA all the way. I am also intrigued on the other two friends so I am hooked to wait for the next story in the series!

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.

Sleeper By Kayley Loring(Review Post)

Published December 17, 2019 by bookbesties

🔥🔥 HOT NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Sleeper by Kayley Loring is LIVE!! Stop what you’re doing and #OneClick today!!

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.

Published November 5, 2019 by bookbesties

 

🔥🔥 NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Check out the HOT new book from L.M Carr! The Play Maker is LIVE!

Playing football ruled every decision Julian MacIntyre ever made, including leaving his high school sweetheart behind to follow his dream. Sidelined by an injury on the field, he’s now making a huge comeback to the NFL as the league’s youngest head coach.

He wants it all. The glory, the job and the girl he walked away from years ago.

As one of the top sports reporters, Addison Hamilton has made a name for herself in a male-dominated industry.

At the knock, I grab the cash and open the door.

“Hi.”

My mouth drops open and my eyes grow wide. “Julian?” I stammer. “What are you doing here?”

“I wanted to see my girl.” He holds up the takeout bag. “I have food.”

I snatch the bag, then step into the hall, looking around. “Nope. Don’t see your girl anywhere.”

“Funny.” Julian places his hand on my abdomen and guides me back into the apartment, an amused look on his face.

Walking backward, I stop and turn from him when my feet feel the transition between hardwood and tile. I distance myself from him and hurry into the kitchen to gather dinnerware.

“Have you eaten?”

I get no response.

“Hello?!” I ask, glancing over my shoulder, catching him staring at my ass. “Take a picture. It’ll last longer.”

My comment jars him and he looks up at me, a smirk on his face. “I don’t need to take a picture.” He taps his temple. “I’ve got an image of that perfect ass right here.”

I snort. “Are you hungry? There’s more than enough for two.”

He nods, striding over to where I stand with two dishes in my hands.

“I am hungry, but not for food.”

Julian extends his arms and places them onto the countertop, caging me in. He leans toward my neck and inhales, making my eyes close. “You smell good.”

“I just showered,” I reply breathlessly, desperate to maintain my composure, quickly losing the battle.

His body flush against mine, his erection presses into my stomach as he dots the skin of my neck with soft kisses until he reaches the corner of my mouth.

“I love you,” he murmurs.

My body stiffens and eyes shoot open. I shake my head as I try to refute his words, but he covers my lips with his, staking his claim. I feel the flames ignite in the pit of my belly as he clutches my face, deepening the kiss. My lips part, welcoming his tongue into my mouth.

Kissing Julian is unlike anything else I’ve ever felt. I lose all sense of awareness as he continues his relentless, yet gentle pursuit to drown me in his affection. The feeling of his tongue tangling with mine adds fuel to the fire simmering in my core.

He lowers one hand to my waist, gripping it firmly to pull me even closer, causing my back to arch. Unable to stand on my weakened legs, I raise my arms and rest them on his shoulders. A loud crash suddenly stills our kiss.

“What was that?” I mumble against his mouth.

Pulling back, a grin appears. “The dishes…”

I raise my gaze from his eyes and notice my hands empty, the plates shattered on the floor. I smile. “It’s your fault. You can’t kiss me like that when I’m in the middle of something.” I lower my arms and walk to the closet, grabbing the broom. “You turn my brain to mush.”

“And what about your body?” he asks with raised eyebrows.

I quickly sweep up the pieces and place them into the trash, then put away the broom. “I think you already know the answer to that.”

 

Julian MacIntyre, known as the play maker was a star in the NFL and had success, but at the expense of walking away from his high school sweetheart Addison. Addison has a lock on her heart and plays it safe when it comes to relationships. Her heart has never healed from that one true love, Julian. Fast forward to the present and after a injury, next best thing “J Mack” is back in the NFL and Addison is the hot journalist who is picked to do a interview. Now she must face Julian and things are about to get live! The chemistry was sweet between these two even though at times, Addison was frustrating. The navigating of old feelings with the new wrapped in a football theme was great. This was a great second chance romance. Must read.

Tempt the Hookup by Natasha Madison(Review Post)

Published October 22, 2019 by bookbesties

Tempt Series, Book 3

Release Day:

October 22

Eliahn

Getting pregnant after a booze cruise hookup was not what any parent wanted to hear, so I picked up my entire life and moved to Paris to start over. Six years later, I was ready to go home.

I was a single mom and the only thing I knew about my son’s dad was his name—Luca. I didn’t need to know anything else.
The universe had other ideas because on our second day back home, the man came crashing back into my life.

Luca

Attending a welcome back party for my boss’s daughter wasn’t how I wanted to spend my Sunday. But walking in and seeing my hookup from a cruise six years ago knocks me on my ass. 
It was a weekend of fun and now I’m seeing a pair of eyes, identical to mine, staring right at me. The boy standing next to her is my son. 
Now we’re living next door to each other and attempting to co-parent something that would be easy to do if the pull that brought us together wasn’t still there making things more complicated.
For six years she haunted my dreams, now she’s haunting my every waking moment.
I let her get away once, now I want to make her mine. 
This time, permanently. 
Only one thing left to do. I have to tempt the hookup.

Who knew that attending a party for your boss daughter would change your life?

For Luca life changed when he saw the woman that he hooked up with six years ago and now she was front and center. To complicate things even more was that she has a kid who eyes are the same as his. Luca is the responsible friend with a high focus on his law career. He has always remembered Eliahn but they never gave any info to each other. Now they must try to co-parent. If it were only that simple. Eli never forgot about Luca and was glad he now knew that he had a son. Only thing is that if she thought the chemistry they had was left on that booze cruise then she was wrong. Her attraction has come full force but she is trying to be careful now that they have to think about their son. Luca is on a mission to make his baby momma his. Their son Aiden is cute and some of the things he says is hilarious. Well developed stories and Luca has a tight knit friend group especially his bestie Nick who is hilarious. Great read and a must one click.

AWK-WEIRD by AVERY FLYNN(Review Post)

Published October 14, 2019 by bookbesties

 

 

There’s more to me than just being awk-weird. I own my own flower shop, have some great friends, and I have my eye on adopting the most adorable kitten. But sadly, hot guys don’t tend to be blown away by my trivia-spouting, dorky self.
 
So, when a Thor-lookalike who happens to be a professional hockey player hits on me at my bestie’s wedding rehearsal party … You better believe I climbed that tree like a cat. And the face that it happened not once, not twice, but three times? Yeah, that’s pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a woman like me. 
 
There’s zero chance I’ll end up ever seeing him again…right? 
 
Until the pregnancy test comes up positive. What happens next?
 
Oh my God, I wish I knew…

Funny, quirky, Awk-weird, yep all of these make this book a hit for me!

First let’s mention the cover that is super cute and funny. This is book two in the Ice Knights series which is a hockey team(Book one Parental Guidance is out now) that we meet Cole at his fellow teammate and friends wedding. There he meets Awk-Weird Tess who loves to spew trivia facts especially when nervous. Tess is refreshing and funny and says the funniest facts so not only is this a romance but you learn great little facts to share! Tess and Cole meet and end up enjoying their night. Fast forward to present where there is a lasting gift that both Tess and Cole will have to see how to Co parent. Throw in some complications and the chemistry starts brewing between these two but Tess does have some insecurities that will keep Cole just far away enough that will have him questioning everything. Can these two finally iron everything out and be happy? I loved this story it had great characters and not to mention there are hockey players so what else could you want. Great 5 star read and I would highly recommend this series or as a matter of fact any book from this author is a hit.
