His Needs, Part 1: Billionaire Alpha Serial (Billionaire Alpha Series)

His Needs, Part 1: Billionaire Alpha Serial (Billionaire Alpha Series) - Ali Parker I read parts 1 - 4 back to back and loving it so far.
Bethany is a smart, yet poor girl graduating at the top of her class. Her dilemma is how to afford the rest of her education while she studies for her Masters. Her mother is about to marry a rich man who generously offers her a job while he pays for her studies. Her future stepbrother Damon will be her boss and sparks are flying. Sexual tension in the office and at home, will it be her downfall?
The plot is great and flying by at a fast pace. The characters are fun and I'm enjoying the banter, the drama and the sizzle. Damon is a man-whore, he lacks trust in woman due to past baggage, will Bethany be 'the one' or will he break her heart? I need to go and hunt down the rest of series too find out.

The Handoff

The Handoff - Jordan Ford So lucky to have an early copy of this book, I love this series and don't want it to end...hear me Jordan, stop plotting the final book :)
This one is about Layla, Mack's sister and Mack's friend Finn. Layla and Finn found an expected connection that quickly became special.
Trouble seems to find Layla, the grief of losing her father has her lost and lonely despite being a popular girl (pretty much due to her drinking and easy reputation with the boys). I enjoyed watching her blossom and mature while surrounded by drama.
I really enjoyed the story line in this book, I was totally swept up in Layla's life and felt so sorry for her. I was hoping that it would all work out in the end and she'd get her HEA.
The characters were fun, except for the ones I wanted to smack and I waited for them to get their comeuppance. There was that one scene that I read faster to see how it panned out...my heart was pounding.
There is an ongoing secret in these books and I imagine it will all come to light in the next book. I highly recommend this series.

Dirty (Dive Bar)

Dirty (Dive Bar) - Kylie Scott I was expected rock band romance...wrong, but I still loved it.
A wedding gone wrong, a runaway bride and a bit of trespassing starts this story off with a laugh. I enjoyed the plot, the characters were funny and naughty.
Bring on the next book.

The Obsession

The Obsession - Nora Roberts Never disappointed reading a Nora book. Great story, I loved it and I didn't see that end result coming.

Delicate Things

Delicate Things - Yolanda Olson I read the beta copy of this story, a few chapters at a time. No Spoilers and be warned this is a dark story.
I think this author's mind is a scary place, time and time again through the book I felt icky, where do these thoughts come from?
This is the strangest, gory love story, maybe not a love story but a scary meeting of two like minded insane people.
Blood and body parts are art....or food!
Towards the ending I remember thinking why??? 'Why' was answered at the ending which was a 'what the hell' moment. I did not see THAT coming.

Bullied

Bullied - K.L. Donn This was a very quick read which made it seem so rushed. Pity though as I enjoyed the concept of the story. Alpha male, instant love with his goddess the broken and bullied college student. Her biggest bully is his younger sister causing all sorts of drama at school and home. She has scars from an accident as a toddler and as much as I can see kids bullying over that I found it hard to perceive college adults doing the same over scars! Though it certainly is an eye opener how a life time of bullying leaves a person broken and possibly suicidal.
I did love that she found her knight and her HEA but I do wish the story was longer giving it and the characters more depth. I love that the epilogue gave the reader an insight into her story a few years later.

Beauty and the Blitz

Beauty and the Blitz - Sosie Frost I love alpha athlete stories. I had no idea what the word blitz was all about..thanks Google.
Football player Cole (Beast) Hawthorn a hulking guy even without the game's padding on was full of anger. His agent's daughter, single mother Piper barges into his life, his home and eventually his heart. They had great chemistry and it progressed slowly and naturally..well his lust was instant, but he had no idea what love was. The story was at time hilarious and you just want them to come together. I was glued to my kindle and thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Missing Summer

Missing Summer - E.N. Hudgins A very angst driven story of Jared and Kollie, just when it seems to be going well bang someone runs and another year flies by. Found that a bit confusing, suddenly starting a chapter and realising it was the following Summer. Didn't put me off the story though, I really enjoyed it. The characters were frustrating at times but pulled me in. A very emotional roller coaster ride of a book.
Haven't read this author before and I look forward to exploring more.

Angel Eyes (A Chaos Novella)

Angel Eyes (A Chaos Novella) - Melissa Pearl I needed a quick light read today and this was perfect. I loved the story of the rockstar and the good country girl. The angst and drama behind the scenes with the mother and sister.
The story kept me entertained and the characters were fun.

Ride: Mistake: BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance (Puca Mates Short Book Seven)

Ride: Mistake: BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance (Puca Mates Short Book Seven) - A.C. James This is the 7th installment in this serial about the Puca (horse shifters)
Cyn has returned to her life, can Fallon survive without her? Will she work out that she cannot live without him?
We touch on Felicity and Niall from the earlier part of the series and her pregnancy, will she come through it ok?
So much going on, suspenseful and my heart was racing. I had to finish and download book 8.

Ride: Wild Ride: BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance (Puca Mates Short Book Eight)

Ride: Wild Ride: BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance (Puca Mates Short Book Eight) - A.C. James Part 8 of the serial about the Puca (horse shifters)
Cyn has made the right decision and decides to return to the Realm. Some drama there whether a certain guy was going to let her go or not.
She arrives back in time for Fallon whose soul was dying without her. She found her friend Felicity in labour and it was touch and go for a while. I won't spoil it for you.
I do love a HEA though.

Ride: Choices: BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance (Puca Mates Short Book Six)

Ride: Choices: BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance (Puca Mates Short Book Six) - A.C. James This is book 6 in this serial, I had to take a break after book 5 and read a couple of other things as I was a bit over it all. This was a good thing though as I came back refreshed and slammed through 6, 7 and 8 this rainy afternoon.
This is Cyn and Fallon and their rocky start as Cyn wants to go back home. She can't leave the realm unless she's mated though and by then will it be too late?
Great plot happening here and intriguing characters...on to book 7 fast.

Her Daring SEAL

Her Daring SEAL - Caitlyn O'Leary Military men, you gotta love 'em.
This book features Dare (Darius) the SEAL and the woman he falls for, Rylie.
Rylie has lived a tortured life for someone so young, she is out to save the world from monsters dealing in illegal activities. Their mission involves human trafficking and the rich skum behind it all.
The plot was full of heart stopping moments and funny one liners.
Great characters, great story and I can't wait to read more of this SEAL team.

Royal Rogue: British Bad Boy Romance

Royal Rogue: British Bad Boy Romance - D.G. Whiskey, Valorie Clifton I really enjoyed this story. A Royal cousin and a computer hacker trying to find out who is blackmailing him. It's nice that the hacker is a beautiful, independent woman. Chemistry between them is instant and their connection sizzled.
Lots of twists and turns here trying to work out who the blackmailer is without picking the obvious. A bit of an insight into British Royalty and London made for an interesting tale.
The sex scenes is where I worked out the author is male, it was raw and at times made me chuckle.
It was a fun read and I look forward to more by this author.
