He’s done playing the nice guy…


Newly single school counselor Josie Butler just made herself a Sexy To-Do list (featuring Bad Boys only). To her mortification, her best friend’s gorgeous older brother Mack finds it…and laughs. But when Josie goes looking for some sexy fun, Mack’s nice guy side turns all hot bad-assery, and suddenly she’s pinned against an alley wall. Hottest. Sex. Ever.   
Veterinarian Mack Kennedy can’t believe Josie wants to ditch her sweet, girl-next-door lifestyle. Even worse, that she’d consider doing it with anyone but him. When she leaves for London they’ll go back to being ‘just friends’ but until then, he’s going to show her just how bad nice guys can be. And it’s the perfect plan, as long as no one finds out… and no one falls in love.

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

When and where did you buy this ebook? 9-30-14 through my Nook.

Did you finish it? Yes

What surprises did it hold–if any? The accents, or the lack thereof. This takes place in Australia, but the accents were hardly there.

What scenes will stay with you?

~ The moment when Mack discovers her list.

~ The Alley Scene

~ The Role-Playing Scene

In general, all the sex scenes were pretty hot. The panties were drenched.

What characters will stay with you? Mostly Mack, for being such a surprise. As a vet, you wouldn’t think he’d be so straitlaced and serious. He’s nice a guy, but can be bad.

Smart woman meets practical vet. If the sanctuary in the story really existed, I would love to visit the place. If only to see the colorful buildings. LOL.

Determined to find her inner sex diva, Melina Parker enlists her childhood friend, Max Dalton, to tutor her after hours. Instead, she ends up in the wrong bed and gets a lesson in passion from Max’s twin brother, Rhys Dalton, a man Melina’s always secretly wanted but never thought she could have.

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

When and where did you buy this ebook? 9-29-14 through my Nook. This was a freebie ebook deal.

Did you finish it? Yes

What surprises did it hold–if any? A little behind-the-scenes peek at what it takes to put on a magic show. Max and Rhys have always been a part of a family of magicians. And they’ve always traveled for their shows. Now, they have their own act. This made me think of that movie, NOW YOU SEE ME. Granted, their tricks weren’t on that grand of a scale, but it was interesting to see their dynamic and how they worked together.

What scenes will stay with you? The sex scenes, of course.

What characters will stay with you?

Rhys – O.M. G. He’s been added to the Book Boyfriend List in the sidebar. This opportunity had been dropped into his lap and he ran with it. Boy, did he run with it. The Sweet Hole wept.

Melina – For even having the courage to ask a longtime friend to help her out with her “so-called” intimacy issues. Brave soul, that girl.

Have you read anything else by Virna DePaul? No, I haven’t, but I plan to.

Review: Elizabeth Reyes’ NOAH (5th Street Series, Book #1)

5th Street

 

Veronica Cruz has been through hell and back. After disconnecting with the world two years ago to be at the side of her dying mother, she’s left alone, unemployed, overweight, and feeling a decade older than her twenty-eight years. When her best friend coaxes her into joining the local gym to ditch her depression and rejuvenate her life, she meets Noah. Assigned to help Veronica lose weight, Noah is everything she expected a young trainer to be—perfectly chiseled, supportive and motivating. Add to that, he’s incredibly sexy. He’s everything she’s ever looked for in a man. What she least expected was for him to fall for her, but he has. There’s just one glaring problem: Noah is eight years younger.

Noah Quintanilla has his eye on a boxing title—someday. Down for a few months with an injury, his maintenance-boy pay at 5th Street Gym won’t cut it. He’s finally given the opportunity to train. The catch? His trainee is an out-of-shape woman with a free week pass. Taking on the challenge, Noah stumbles into one of the closest friendships he’s ever known, and before he knows it, he’s in love. But Veronica’s not having it—the age difference is too much. Their platonic relationship means having to watch her date other men—something that would make him crazy. Believing he’s the man for her, Noah sets out to prove that age is but an illusion, and there’s more to him than just a number.

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

When and where did you buy this ebook? 9-16-14 through my Nook. This was a freebie ebook deal.

Did you finish it? Yes, barely

What surprises did it hold–if any?

~ Lack of punctuation in some parts. It’s funny, because she thanks her editor in the back credits for her “fast service.” I’m thinking she was so fast, she didn’t catch the lack of punctuation (commas, to be exact) and some of the typos.

~ The surprise was that I nearly didn’t finish this book. I was so pissed that I was just going to not finish, but I pushed through.

What scenes will stay with you? The sex scene in the boxing ring.

What characters will stay with you?

Noah – for two reasons: 1) he’s fuckin’ hawt. And 2) because he put up with Roni’s waffling.

Roni – for the simple fact that she was the reason I wanted to stop reading. Her waffling was so dragged out in this novel that I was ready to quit. If I had been her best friend, Nellie, I would’ve bitchslapped this woman on the daily. The main issue she had with this relationship was age: Noah was 8 yrs younger than her and she felt that he was too young. That he didn’t have any life experience. To be fair, I would’ve thought the same thing–about his being too young. At first. But after proving himself–at least to me–that he was older than his 20 yrs, I would’ve hopped on the R. Kelly “Age ain’t nothin’ but a number” train. Noah had life experience, just not the typical life experience Roni was thinking.

Have you read anything else by Elizabeth Reyes? No, I haven’t. I was thinking about checking out her other books, but after browsing her website, and finding it riddled with typos, I think I’ll pass. I would suggest a proofreader, Miz Elizabeth…both for your books and your website.

What will you do now with this ebook? Delete it. It’s lendable, but I wouldn’t recommend it due to the punctuation and typo issues.

Is it available today? Yes

What’s the verdict?

1/2

Currently Reading: Alison Kent’s THE COMPLETE IDIOT’S GUIDE: WRITING EROTIC ROMANCE

 

currently-reading

Yes, for the first time ever, I’m reading two books at once. And this one happens to be–GASP!!–in paperback. I read romance on my Nook and anything writing industry-related gets put on my bookshelves. I’ve been reading this for nearly a week now because, well, I’m an idiot when it comes to this genre. Figured I’d better read up on it before I attempt to write it. Review to come when I’m done.

Brought to you by Booking Through Thursday:

Copy the questions, paste them into your blog and answer them.

When you’re done, go back to BTT and post a quick comment or trackback letting everyone know so they can read your responses. Be sure to leave a link to your actual post! (Just type in the web-address–Wordpress will automatically turn it into a link for you.)

Lastly, no, you do NOT have to answer on Thursdays. Please feel free to answer any time you want, we’re just glad to have you.

 

 

What’s your favorite genre that other people might not read? I mean, mysteries, romances, real-crime … these are all fairly widespread categories. But real readers don’t usually limit themselves to just the “big” genres … so what’s your favorite little-known type of book? Books on dogs? Knitting books? Stories about the space race? Mathematical theory?

 

I read non-fiction but as it pertains to writing.  Currently, I’m reading the below book by Alison Kent, because I really am an idiot when it comes to writing contemporary adult erotic fiction. But I’ve been learning a lot.

Highlighting and dog-earing pages.

Did you catch that? The highlighting and dog-earing part, I mean.

If you did, good for you. If not, then you’re a newb and know nothing about me. Or know that I read all my books on my Nook.

This is one of several non-fiction, writing industry related books that I actually own in paperback.

It’s important like that and feels privileged to take up space on my bookshelf. LOL

I’m starting to think that this won’t be the only book I’ll be reading in regards to this genre. I guess you could consider this obscure since not too many people would read books about writing–or publishing even–unless they’re a writer. Or aspiring to be a writer.

lifeasblogger

 

It’s a weekly feature (on Thursday’s). Each week Jessi over at Novel Heartbeat will choose a subject and talk about that subject in her life. The topics will be non-bookish so that you can get to know her on a more personal level! She definitely encourages everyone to participate, too. She wants this to be meme style with a linky for you to add your posts to. She wants to know more about you guys as well!

I’m gonna make a list like Jessi did.

Scents I Love:

  • Coffee
  • Daisies
  • Cool Water cologne – I hear you on that, Jessi
  • Drakkar Noir cologne
  • Pipes
  • When it comes to candles/car freshners/air freshners/laundry detergent…I like ocean/rain/cotton/linen scents
  • Creme of Nature‘s Sunflower & Coconut Detangling Conditioning Shampoo that my beautician sometimes uses on my hair.
  • Popcorn
  • Rain
  • My Mommy’s fried chicken

 

Scents I Hate:

  • Tuna
  • Sardines
  • Liver
  • Fish – even though I like eating it
  • Beer
  • Cigarettes and cigars
  • And the typical stuff (shit, farts, BO, vomit, garbage)

 

What about you?

Review: Ranae Rose’s SERIOUS INK (Inked in the Steel City Series, Book #5)

wps8

 

Pub. Date: February 4, 2014 Publisher: Ranae Rose Sold By: Barnes & Noble Format: NOOK Book, 182pp Series: Inked in the Steel City BN ID: 2940148115021

Hard times mean hard choices, but falling for Noah Wilder is easy. Beneath his suit and tie, he’s seriously inked and seriously irresistible. When he walks into the Hot Ink Tattoo Studio, the attraction between him and studio receptionist Zoe is mutual – and fierce. And after the opportunity to ditch her demeaning second job to work for him instead arises, suddenly he’s her boss … and much more. With lines blurred in every way imaginable, can she balance passion and professionalism with doing what’s best for her struggling family?

Attraction is a powerful thing. So is former fighter Noah’s drive to make his growing mixed martial arts promotion company succeed, and if business happens to coincide with pleasure, so much the better. Tattooed beauty Zoe Ramsey is all his when she’s not working at Hot Ink – for twenty hours a week, anyway. When circumstances bring them close faster than they ever imagined, can he make her see that he’s just as serious about her as he is about the business he’s poured his heart and soul into?

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

When and where did you buy this ebook? 9-10-14 through my Nook

Did you finish it? Yes

What surprises did it hold–if any?

~ So, the “when circumstances bring them close faster than they ever imagined”  Miz Ranae was talking about wasn’t what I well, had imagined it to be. I was thinking an unplanned pregnancy, but not this time.

~ The MMA aspect. This brought together two of my favorite topics–tattoos and MMA–which was really cool.

~ As in any series, I was expecting to “see” more characters from the other books (even though I haven’t read 2-4 yet), and I was disappointed that there wasn’t. Especially since Zoe’s the receptionist at the tattoo place for which this series is focused. I like it when characters from other books are a part of the story somehow, even if it’s in the form of a cameo.

What scenes will stay with you?

~ The love scenes (particularly the Office Scene), of  course. Yow-za! Especially when you finally get a description of Noah’s tattoos. It just made the scenes hotter.

~ The MMA stuff. I’m not a huge MMA fan, but I know names (like Uriah Faber, Wanderlei Silva, and George St. Pierre–sexy-ass mofo) and I like reading about the behind-the-scenes stuff: the special diets, the training workouts, who really abides by the “no sex before a fight” rule, even what it takes to promote a fight, which is Noah’s business. He used to be a fighter himself until he got injured, so the next best thing he could do to stay in the field he loves is to promote the fights. I thought that was pretty cool because I’ve often wondered what MMA fighters do once they retire (other than commentate, that is).

What characters will stay with you? Mostly Zoe, just because she’s holdin’ it down with two jobs and trying to keep her head above water when it comes to the bills. It’s even tougher when you have to cover the medical bills for a sick family member. I’m currently living paycheck to paycheck–with no desire to get a second job–so I can’t even imagine what it would be like trying to care for a parent.

Have you read anything else by Ranae Rose? Yes,  I have. You can check out my review for Book #1 in this series, HOT INK. I also plan to read the other titles in this series and have added them to my Wish List.
