Full Blurb

He rejected her. She loathes him. Now they have to fool everyone and pretend they actually like each other.

Tanner Harris has been busy shagging his way through the ladies of east London, but getting caught by the paparazzi buck-naked with his trouser snake in his hands means he’s sowed his last wild oat.
Dr. Belle Ryan once thought Tanner Harris was the perfect kind of bearded bad boy she needed to relieve a bit of stress after her intense job as a surgical fellow, but an icy cold rejection from London’s sluttiest footballer puts the two at each other’s throats.
Fate and a favour conspire to put Tanner and Belle back in each other’s paths and they’re forced to do a lot more than get along to save face and their careers.
Rage turns to passion and tempers run sizzling hot when they realise they aren’t just falling for each other—they’re jumping head first. And neither have the endurance to keep their hands to themselves.

Finding Mr. WrongFinding Mr. Wrong by A.M. Madden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Who Knew Something So Wrong Could Be So Right Stars!!!!
Reviewed by Franci Neill


I'm a huge fan of both these authors independently so when I heard they were teaming up to co-write a book I did a little happy dance. What a successful first venture they've produced. I freaking loved this book!!! Soren is the type of guy that has it all going on, but thanks to his best friends he finds himself in a rather odd situation which results being on a desert island with Brae for over 40 days!

At first you're thinking, this is a regurgitation of a similar TV show, but it really isn't that...it's so much better than any reality TV I've ever watched! Brae is a woman that likes to be in control at all times, so being with someone so confident and sexy kept her on her toes...and other parts of her body too!!!

This book was written brilliantly. At no point was there a delineation as to which author was writing which parts and that's one of the more difficult tasks when co-authoring with someone. Ms. Madden and Ms. Schwehm made it look seamless. The dialogue was fast moving, hilarious and sexy. I found myself having difficulty putting this one down to you know, be in the real world.

If you're looking for a swoonworthy, laugh out loud, sexy read, Finding Mr. Wrong is the one for you. I for one can't wait to see what they come up with for Kyle and Luca!!!

A Broken Soul (The Pembrooke Series Book 3)A Broken Soul by Jessica Prince
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Are We Really Broken Stars!!!
Reviewed by Franci Neill


Somehow I made it through this beautifully and emotionally told story written by Ms. Prince. Quinn and Lilly are two people that are so emotionally beat-up that the thought of finding love and keeping it for a lifetime wasn't even on their radar, both for very different reasons.

Lilly is a beautiful and talented dancer and dance instructor who has received some of the worst news possible that literally could cripple her emotionally. My heart actually bled for her and the pain she was suffering. If I could have taken it away from her I would have. Quinn on the other hand is blaming himself for an accident that had reverberating consequences that for some reason he's let take over his life. And I get why he's doing it, but to let something that really was an accident dictate the rest of your life will prove to be a very lonely and angry life....

That is until he lets Lilly in just a little bit. Once she's there though, she's embedded and he needs to become okay with that. Because having someone to mend your broken heart is not only life saving, but it can lead to an all encompassing love unlike anything either of them have experienced to date.

The strength and beauty of the words that Jessica has given us allowed me to watch what was to be a friend helping a friend relationship develop into a powerful love that there was no escape from. Don't get me wrong there were plenty of times I was ranting and raving at one or both of them, because of their stubbornness and inability to let something go, but, let it go they did. This in turn allowed the bond and draw they felt for each other to burn brighter and stronger proving that when you open your heart and soul to the person that is meant to be yours, nothing is impossible and together you can conquer not only your worst fears but the world itself!

I'm sad that this is the last book in this series, but if it's truly the last one I'm satisfied that Quinn and Lilly's story brought this series to it's conclusion. I've loved the entire series, but their story is my favorite and will resonate in my heart for years to come.

RM-FB-on-sale-5       Royally-Matched-3D-bookSome men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap. He’s not handling it well. Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own: Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition. A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart. While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye. The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor. But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight. As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

Pucked Off, an all-new emotional and sexy STANDALONE from Helena Hunting is LIVE!!

Pucked Off by Helena Hunting Genre: Contemporary Romance

businessman working on laptop  in black suit

***A Standalone novel in The Pucked Series***

I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance."

I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.

Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.

I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.

At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.

I shouldn’t want her.

But I do.

I should leave her alone.

But I won’t.

Excerpt:

Armed with my clipboard, I walk down the hall to the waiting room. Lance is impossible to miss. Despite the fact that he’s wearing a sweatshirt and the hood is covering half of his face, he’s more than six feet of broad, hockey-playing man. He’s so wide his shoulders encroach on the chairs on either side, which would explain why no one is sitting next to him. He’s slouched down so his head rests on the back of the chair, and his hands are clasped in his lap, a baseball cap hanging off one knee. His lips, plush and soft—I know since I’ve had them on mine; it might have been a decade ago, but I remember it clearly—are parted. He looks like he’s asleep. I clear my throat. “Lance Romero?” He doesn’t move. Bernadette, the receptionist, gives me a meaningful look. I clear my throat again and call his name a second time. He jolts awake and the hood falls back, exposing his face. It’s not in good shape. He has a black eye and bruises on his left cheek. There’s a fly bandage across one eyebrow. Sadly, he’s still hot. He blinks a few times, yawns, and smacks his lips, his tongue touching the split in the bottom one. His gaze sweeps the room and finally lands on me. Heat explodes in my cheeks and courses through my limbs, warming me from the inside out as he starts at my sneaker-clad feet and roams up over my yoga pants to my company-issued T-shirt before stopping at my face. I can’t look directly at him for more than a couple of seconds. I sincerely hope he doesn’t remember me. I cannot go there and also be professional. I’m sure the smile he gives me has melted many a panty off a slutty bunny. Mine stay right where they’re supposed to, wedged up my ass. I force a polite, professional veneer. “I’m ready for you now.” poan

Synopsis
Foster Kavanaugh, former Navy SEAL, knows what it’s like to be the top dog, the man in charge, the one calling the shots. Now that he’s running his own security consulting firm, not much has changed. Except the curvy blonde he hired as his office manager. Noelle Davis has been through the damn ringer. Swearing off men after escaping a toxic relationship, she’s grateful for a fresh start—new job included. Except her job isn’t tranquil and calm. In fact, it’s quite the opposite because her boss is the most infuriating man on the planet. And, not to mention, sexy as hell. Foster has limits. Rules. No attachments allowed because he doesn’t do love—and Noelle Davis foiled that plan and took a red pen to his list of rules. With her smart mouth and quick witted banter, he found the woman beginning to creep past his defenses. When circumstances put Noelle in a perilous position, the first person to come to her rescue is none other than Foster Kavanaugh. She gets to see the man in action—not as her aggravating boss, but the man who will stop at nothing to keep her safe. The same man who makes her want to reconsider her self-imposed embargo of men. The man she wants to get to know now that she’s seen another side of him. The man who makes her want…more. But is more possible when you're OUT OF LOVE?

Nine Kinds of Naughty (Art of Passion, #3)Nine Kinds of Naughty by Jeanette Grey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yes, yes, yes, another new author for me to read! Although Jeanette Grey may not be a newer author in general, she is a new author to me. I just finished Nine Kinds of Naughty and I absolutely devoured it! Wow, just wow!!!

Recently I have been super lucky to have some amazing 5 star reads on my kindle. But for some reason this past week, I have not been able to find something to capture my attention. This all changed with one Dom named Dane Huntley.

Alexis Bellamy works along with her brother Rylan at Bellamy International. As one of the head people at Bellamy International, Alexis (Lexie) is hard working and driven to the point that she doesn't really even know who she is without her job. Dane Huntley is the lucky guy who is Lexie's assistant.

So now you are looking back at my review saying, "Didn't she say that Dane was a Dom?!?!" Yes, Dane is a Dom. And did you see that I also said that he was Lexie's assistant???

"How many times had he fantasized about seeing his perfectly put- together boss with her panties around her ankles and her hair a sexed- up mess?"
~ Jeanette Grey, Nine Kinds of Naughty (Art of Passion #3)

Lexie's job calls her to Europe to finalize a deal. Being Lexie's asistant, Dane is required to go along. That is when the fun begins...

One hot Dom + One empty plane ride across the Atlantic = One hot ride

"You need this. Someone to take care of you. Someone who can pull you out of your goddamn head for a minute. Show you how to let go."
~ Jeanette Grey, Nine Kinds of Naughty (Art of Passion #3)

Dane strips Lexie down to her core and helps her become the person that she was born to be.

"You're so strong, Lexie. It's sexy as hell to watch you eviscerate a room full of businessmen. But it's okay to admit that it wears you out. It's okay to let yourself put it all down. Let somebody else carry the weight. And when you do? It means you pick it up again even stronger than you were before."
~ Jeanette Grey, Nine Kinds of Naughty (Art of Passion #3)

Watching Dane & Lexie discover and navigate their relationship was such a treat! This book completely filled my heart with warmth and love for these two characters.

Nine Kinds of Naughty is the third book in the Art of Passion series. Full disclosure, I did not read the first two books. The first two books feature Lexie's brother, Rylan. Although Rylan & Kate are in Nine Kinds of Naughty, you did not have to read their story to enjoy Dane & Lexie's story. I went and one clicked Seven Nights to Surrender (Art of Passion #1) & Eight Ways to Ecstasy (Art of Passion #2) right after I finished Nine Kinds of Naughty. I will be circling back to these books in the next few weeks. I can't wait!

Back to Dane & Lexie... I loved their story so much!!! I wish I could reread it for the first time again.

"Lexie might rule the boardroom, but she'd been born to be put on her knees."
~ Jeanette Grey, Nine Kinds of Naughty (Art of Passion #3)

Thank you Jeanette for allowing me to read Nine Kinds of Naughty prior to its release. Thank you also for writing these characters. This was the perfect book at the perfect time for me. I am so looking forward to reading the rest of this series. Oh, and Evan needs his own book! Please, please, pretty please!
