This is Love by Natasha Madison(Review Post)

Published September 4, 2019 by bookbesties
From the best selling series, Something So comes the spin-off series This is…
Vivienne
Never fall in love.
That was my motto, and I was sticking to it.
Having my heart broken once was enough, and I never wanted to do it again.
He was supposed to be a one-night stand, the only thing I do.
One rule shouldn’t be so hard to follow, but then I went back for seconds, then thirds. 
After that, I lost count of the number of times I lost myself in his arms. When I wasn’t paying attention, my guard slipped.
 
Mark
They call me Private Mark for a reason – my whole life is a secret. For two yeats, we danced around each other until I got her right where I wanted her…under me. 
Now that I had her, I wasn’t letting her go. I thought we were on the same page. I thought we were building something great. 
Boy, was I ever wrong.
I had no idea that while I was falling in love, she was trying to convince herself we were temporary.
She thought I’d walk away.
She was wrong.
Now it’s time to convince her she wants us too and to show her that the crazy, wild thing we have…
This Is Love.

This Is Love (This is, #3)This Is Love by Natasha Madison

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Seasoned Natasha Madison reader alert!
I love a good sports romance and Natasha always delivers. The story line flows and she always delivers strong characters. Mark is this Greek God who plays hockey so win win. Vivienne is funny and feisty and french. The chemistry is so strong between these two that they burn the pages right on my kindle!

Vivienne is the serial dater not wanting to fall in the love trap. Mark has his sights set on the beautiful woman who never called him. Vivienne’s attraction to Mark has her giving in and breaking all her rules. Mark is determined to break down her walls but Vivienne will give him a run for his money. But,  when her past clashes with her present what will she do? Great quick read!  I would give it 20 stars if they would allow!

Meet the Author:
When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Wild Steamy Hookup by Piper Rayne(Review Post)

Published August 27, 2019 by bookbesties

 

He’s the quiet brooding guy who’s
owned my heart since I was sixteen but has refused to claim it.

I’m the naïve woman who believes
that someday our time will come.

I just didn’t realize that someday
would include waking up in Vegas with a raging hangover and a ring on my
finger.

If we believed in fate, maybe one
of us would’ve trusted that something more powerful than ourselves interceded
because our love is one of tangled vines. As twisted and frayed as they’ve
become over the years, they’ve never broken.

An annulment seemed like the easy
way out. We should’ve known it wouldn’t be fate that intervened, but our
Italian Mamas. They can deliver Oscar-worthy performances when heaping on the
guilt.

We thought it’d be easy to pretend
to be a happily married couple in front of our families for three months and
then say we gave it our best shot and go our separate ways.

But nothing is easy when it comes
to Dominic Mancini and me. Nothing. to pretend
to be a happily married couple in front of our families for three months and
then say we gave it our best shot and go our separate ways.

But nothing is easy when it comes
to Dominic Mancini and me. Nothing.

First I must say when it comes to this Author there should be more than 5 stars.

The cover is enticing and I love the color scheme. You see it and its warming.  Now when you turn to chapter one Dominic is the first to speak and after the first sentences I knew I was going to have a sleepless night. There is something about these Piper Rayne books that I swear are like a drug and I am happy to have the addiction.! Ok so its book 3 and You have Enzo who was alpha , Carm is a charmer and Dom has been quiet and broody. Dom and Val have had a complicated past and it’s been off and on. There have definitely been some miscommunications and every time they thought it would be their time life would happen. Now present day you have Vegas and drinking with an explosive chemistry between two people and Tadaaa you have a marriage made in heaven. Well….. remember life is not easy and between this Italian families and an Ex husband it will be a long road. Yes I loved Dom he was broody but sweet and spicy. Both him and Val just had beautiful chemistry. The story is a roller coaster with twists. This is raw, relatable and real. My favorite couple of the series and damn ladies you put everything including the kitchen sink in this story lol. Another one click choice because this is romance at its finest!!.

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one. Our goal is to bring you romance stories that have “Heartwarming Humor With a Side of Sizzle” (okay…you caught us, that’s our tagline). A little about us… We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.

This is Wild by Natasha Madison(Review Post)

Published July 30, 2019 by bookbesties
From the best selling series, Something So comes the spin-off Series This is…

Zoe
When you grow up surrounded by hockey players you know one thing for sure, I was never going to settle down with one.

Heck, I didn’t even know what icing was. I was too busy climbing the corporate ladder, becoming one of the most successful realtors in New York City.

I wasn’t interested in dating or anything that got in my way.

First, he was my client and then he became my friend.

Viktor
My parents told me I skated before I walked.
When I was eighteen I was drafted into the N.H.L third overall, playing in Los Angeles—the city of dreams.
What more could I ask for? I played hard, but eventually, I partied even harder.

Five years later I was traded a week after I entered rehab.

There was no time for anything except my health and making sure I’d come out on top. I had to be better.
There wasn’t another option.

One of the rules of recovery was ‘don’t fall in love’ and I made it a top priority. She was off limits in every single way.

Until it was too late

One night, one decision, one act can derail everything.

When push comes to shove, I’m only certain that, This is Wild.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Who doesn’t love a sports romance and at best a hockey romance. I love this family they are relatable and funny.
Fresh out of rehab from his addiction Viktor Petrov has a long road ahead of him. Viktor has a lot of changes going on including being signed by the NY Stingers and will be leaving his old team in LA. He meets the sister of the owner of his new team and also new realtor, Zoe. There is attraction at first sight but Viktor knows she is off limits and during his recovery period he does not need distractions. Zoe keeps telling herself that she won’t date a client and hockey players but why doesn’t she believe herself? Watch Viktor journey towards his first year of sobriety and now that him and Zoe are settled on being friends well let’s see if that lasts!

I love the chemistry with all the characters and the story just flows so well. I have enjoyed this series thoroughly! 5 stars all the way! Great read

1001 Dark Nights: The King by Jennifer L. Armentrout(Review Post)

Published July 28, 2019 by bookbesties

51ClYL3rWxL

From #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes the next installment in her Wicked series.

As Caden and Brighton’s attraction grows despite the odds stacked against a happily ever after, they must work together to stop an Ancient fae from releasing the Queen, who wants nothing more than to see Caden become the evil Prince once feared by fae and mortals alike.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

 

 

The King (A Wicked Trilogy #3.6)The King by Jennifer L. Armentrout

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A year is a long time to wait for a continuation of a story and sometimes I find myself having to re-read the previous book to get myself back in the world. I didn’t have to do that with this book and that was a plus for me. While this is a continuation of the first book, The Prince, it didn’t feel as if I forgot anything and the story kind of jumps right back into it.

Caden is now King of the Summer Fae and with that comes certain duties he has to withhold for his people. Brighton thought at one point they were friends, more than friends until he cut her off so she continues on in her quest to find the Fae responsible for killing her mother and nearly killing her.
Everyone seems to forget that Bri is a member of the order and when she is outed for hunting, everyone strongly encourages her to stop. Bri is angry that one one believes she is strong enough to kill an Ancient, including the King and when he drops a bomb on her about part of his duties, she is more determined than ever to prove everyone wrong. But when Bri’s life is put in peril she realizes just how strong she is and how wrong she was.
Although this book is a novella it doesn’t read like one and I guess that has more to do with there being more to the story. There was so much feeling in the scenes with Brighton and the King it was pouring off the pages. And man, the sexy times were REALLY sexy!
The story doesn’t have a cliffhanger per-say, but it does leave you wanting more, like NOW!

Great job once again Jennifer, but also boo because now I have to wait a whole year! 🙂

The Assist by Rebecca Jenshak(Review Post)

Published June 26, 2019 by bookbesties

41beRX0muqL

You know those stories where the smart girl tutors the dumb jock? This isn’t it.

Blair:
What’s the probability of insulting the one guy on campus I need to help me pass statistics? If I knew, I wouldn’t be standing in front of Wes Reynolds begging him to tutor me.

Basketball player, sexy, arrogant, always sleeping through class… these are the things I knew about him. What I didn’t know is that he is a seriously smart jock.

Wes:
What’s the best way to get rid of the peppy and unrelenting girl that keeps asking me to tutor her? If I knew, I wouldn’t be staring at her tan legs and attempting to teach her statistics.

Sorority girl, fine as f**k, determined, ball buster… these are the things I knew about her. What I didn’t know is that she is all the things I didn’t realize I wanted or needed.

Or that one semester with her would change everything.

OUT NOW

Wes is Valleys basketball star and Blair is you college sorority girl who seems to be struggling in Statistics. She wonders how is it that the jock who sleeps in class , just got a big fat ‘A’ and here she is with a big flop on her test. She reaches out to the jocks thinking if she could get her hands on their tutor she can get what she needs for the MBA program but little does she know that Wes is the secret weapon.

So he is sexy with basketball skills and smart. Blair wins Wes tutoring skills and things get complicated from there. Can she get the grade she needs? What happens when the attraction sparks and will they give in and if so can Wes be serious? Can’t spoil what happens but this is a great read.
Ok so this is a new author to me but it was a sports romance so I said hey why not! First the cover is a win, second it’s a Sports Romance and third the characters are great. The setting is in college senior year and when the college romances are written well me as a 40 year old can enjoy lol. Wes is a bit cocky but he is smart. He goes through some struggles dealing with an injury and then a pesky ex of Blairs but he is refreshing. Then there is Blair ,which I was digging the name, she has some struggles with again that pesky ex but I like that in the beginning she wasn’t all over heart eyes for Wes. The romance simmered a bit before she started falling and gave Wes a little run for his money. Interested to see what happens with the other characters.

stars 4

This Is Crazy(Cover Reveal)!

Published May 15, 2019 by bookbesties

 

 

 

From the best selling series, Something So comes the spin-off This
is…
 
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.
