Right Where I Want You by Jessica Hawkins #newrelease #review

Title: Right Where I Want You
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 28, 2018

BLURB

There’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and it cuts right through the middle of their office.

Bad boys? They run right over good girls like Georgina Keller.

But after a confidence-shattering breakup, she’s determined not to let anyone at her new workplace push her around—least of all the brooding creative director, a “bad boy of publishing” who’s made it clear she’s enemy #1.

Sebastian Quinn’s taste for fast cars, late nights, and beautiful women may have gotten him to the top of a leading New York magazine, but the reputation that made him is suddenly threatening to end his career.

Georgina can help Modern Man shed its bad reputation, but in order to do that, she’ll have to start at the top—and no amount of rakish charm or inconvenient attraction will distract her.

Because if Sebastian gets her right where he wants her, it means she’s going down.

My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really enjoyed this romantic comedy. The story is engrossing, the characters well developed, and the story overall enjoyable, it manages to make your heart flutter!

Sebastian Quinn is the creative director of a struggling men’s lifestyle magazine. He is also considered a bad boy of publishing. He is passionate about his job, but for the first time in his career, he has stumbled.

Georgina Keller specializes in media consulting and has been hired to work alongside Sebastian and co-manage his department. At first, Sebastian sees Georgina as a threat and a frustrating disruption to his routine. He is not used to taking orders. Their opposing management styles and personality differences complicate their forced collaboration.

I loved the way Sebastian builds his relationship with Georgina, it was truly beautiful. I loved him eventually once the hard ass persona had gone. He has adapted to his professional surroundings and adopted a public persona, his confidence has been hard earned. The author allowed Georgina and Sebastian’s conflicted feelings to shine through which in turn allowed their relationship to slowly evolve. Their bickering and falling in love was cute and fun to read.

I loved that the author did not create her drama by weakening the heroine, but rather gave us a very strong willed female lead. Georgina has strength, and perseverance. She is also able to compromise.

I loved the connection between the characters. Even through all the issues, they can joke and have fun together. What really gives this story its edge is the warmth and humor that runs through it.

Many thanks to the author and Give Me Books PR for my early copy of this book!

Excerpt
At the stadium’s concession stand, I took a tall stool, putting Georgina and I at eye level since she stood. “So, why didn’t you kiss François?” I asked. “Bad breath?”
She gasped into her hand. “My breath is fine.”
“I meant his. I’m sure yours is pure relish on a hotdog.”
She made a face. “Gross.”
“I happen to love relish,” I said. “But does François?”
Each time I said François with flourish, she flinched. I didn’t care. Something about him bugged me—I just couldn’t put my finger on it.
“We didn’t kiss because you interrupted us,” she pointed out.
“So? If I were in his position, and we both wanted that kiss, I wouldn’t let anyone stop me.”
Frank and I are clicking,” she said, scowling. “There was even mention of spending time at his summerhouse.”
“Hamptons?”
She coughed into her fist. “Boca Raton.”
The idea of Georgina spending a summer with him in Boca Raton was tragic enough that I almost smiled. I got the sense she was playing up the date. If it was so great, why wasn’t she sitting here with him? And why was I more relieved than smug about that? “Meanwhile, Justin and I will be clamming in Montauk.”
“You two should really just make it official and announce your love to the world.”
“But then I wouldn’t get to flirt with pretty girls.”
“For someone who pretends to have as much game as you,” she said, “I still haven’t seen you successfully flirt with any girls since I’ve known you.”
I smirked. “How do you know I’m not flirting with you right now?”

SYNOPSIS:

From London with love… or indifference?

I have loved Kyle Paxton since I met him a year ago. We’ve gone through a lifetime of love and breakups. I can’t be with him. But I can’t keep away. I need to try to love him the way he is. Imperfect. Broken.

Unconditional love.

In an age of casual hookups, can our love survive?

Finding Juniper picks up where Juniper Smoke left off. Faster paced, with more sparks, more plot, more drama, more intensity: get ready for another fun ride as Juniper and Kyle fall in love over time and place. From Ann Arbor Michigan to San Francisco in the first book, to London and Ireland in Finding Juniper… catch up with Juniper and Kyle on this breathless journey of what unconditional love means.

My Review

Rating : 4.5 Stars

This story picks up where the first book in the series, Juniper Smoke, left off. Kyle is desperate, Juniper walked out on him and he wants her back. He is the only man Juniper ever wanted but his ruthless behavior hurt her deeply, he betrayed her confidence. Their reunion is bittersweet and painful. Juniper is determined to make him fall in love again, but his apparent indifference breaks her heart. Kyle is back to his robotic ways and systems.

This book really creates a roller coaster of emotions for the reader. The characters became completely realistic to me. Their chemistry really made the story. It got me totally invested in their relationship and totally addicted to the story. Their mood swings and mixed signals were confusing at times. I’ll be honest, I was still a little unsure of Kyle, he is a jerk, but an irresistible one. Sadia Ash did such a great job of softening my heart towards him. The story features some very satisfying emotional growth from both Kyle and Juniper. They are as different as night and day, and yet when they come together they are the absolute best versions of each other.

The romance, the plot, the characters, all of it combines to make an absolutely unforgettable story. It’s heartbreaking, heart stopping, exciting, romantic, passionate and totally satisfying! Highly recommended!

Pretty Little Player (Blackwell-Lyon #2) by J. Kenner #newrelease

Pretty Little Player RB banner.jpg

Pretty Little Player, a sexy, new standalone from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner, is available now!

PLP-full wrap-promo use only.jpg

Bedroom games are fine … but I need a woman who won’t play with my heart.

After years in the military, I’ve faced down a lot of things, and there’s not much I shy away from. Except relationships. Because when you catch your wife in bed with another man, that tends to sour even the most hardened man against women.

When I was hired to keep surveillance on a woman with a checkered past, I went into the job anticipating the worst. But what I found was a woman who turned my head. Who made my blood heat and my body burn. A woman who made me feel alive again.

A woman who was nothing like what I expected, but everything I wanted. A woman who, it turned out, needed my protection. And wanted my touch.

And as the world fell out from under us, and everything I thought I knew shifted, there was only one reality I could hold onto—that the more I got to know her, the more I wanted her.

But if I’m going to make her mine, I’ll have to not only keep her safe, I’ll have to prove to her that I’ve conquered my own fears and doubts. That I’m done looking into the past, and that all I want is a future—with her.

My Review

Rating : 4 Stars

This second story in the Blackwell-Lyon series was fun, sexy, fast paced, and filled with tension. I really enjoyed the suspense angle of the book. It was interesting and had some twists that I hadn’t really expected. It kept me reading and wanting to know how things would work out. Cayden Lyon is a private investigator. He is very at what he does, involving seduction and adultery cases. He is highly motivated for personal reasons.  Gracie Harmon is his latest subject.  Her case should a quick, simple investigation but ends up becoming much more. Gracie is nothing like what he expected.

The author did a great job making me care about the characters. There was nice romantic development. I might have liked a little more emotional appeal though. That said, the story itself was riveting. Cayden was fiercely protective of Gracie, I really loved his protectiveness. And she really needed it.

Each book in this series features a new couple, so they can be read as standalones.

My honest review is based on an advanced reader copy of this book.

Blurb: 

Being labelled a player never stopped me from being successful with women. Until I met Truly Harbury.

Truly was the first girl who ever turned me down.

The first female friend I ever had.

And she might just be the first woman I ever fall in love with.

When an emergency means she needs my help running her family’s charity, I’m happy to introduce her to the glitz and glamour of the London business world—taking her to dinners, coaching her through speeches, zipping up the sexy evening gown I helped her pick out.

The more time we spend together, the more I want to convince her I’m not a man to avoid, that we’re not as unsuited as she believes.

She sees herself as the book-reading, science-loving introvert while I’m the dangerous, outgoing, charmer.

She thinks I love parties and people whereas she prefers pajamas and a takeaway.

What she doesn’t realize is that I like everything about her–the way her smile lights up a room, how her curves light up my imagination, and especially the way her lips taste when coated with tequila.

She’s the first woman I ever fell in love with. I just need to know if she could ever love me too.

Across the Horizon by Aly Martinez #review

“Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair.

I didn’t believe it until five minutes later when mouth-watering celebrity chef Tanner Reese walked up, tossed his arm around my shoulders, and told my cheating husband to take a hike.

Tanner and I couldn’t have been more different. He spent his weekends at clubs, rubbing elbows with fellow A-listers. I spent mine in yoga pants with cheese boards and a glass of wine—or six.

Our relationship shouldn’t have worked, but it did. That is until Tanner proved to me that even though love happens when you least expect it…

So does heartbreak.

My Review

Rating : 4 Stars 

This book was an engaging and sweet, yet angsty romance, which featured Tanner Reese the younger brother of the main character from The Darkest Sunrise Duet, Porter Reese.

Tanner is a dreamy hero and a celebrity adored by thousands of fans. His show is the number one cooking show on television and made him millions. He lives in the spotlight and having a private life is complicated.

Rita Hartley is at a crossroads both professionally and privately. She is the office manager of her husband’s private practice, but her married life was a lie and her husband cheated on her. Her ability to trust has been shattered.

Tanner and Rita have a simmering attraction and chemistry, something that instantly drew me in. The portion of the story that is amusing is the fact that both characters have zero plans on falling for the other. Yet they are both so obviously attracted to everything about the other.

Both characters were strong and well developed with very real emotions and flaws. I loved how the author didn’t just brush away their problems and actually dealt with the issues.

It was awesome to see Tanner open his eyes to the life he wants. The only little gripe I had overall was that I would like to have seen less drama with Rita’s ex-husband. But overall, this was an entertaining read.

My honest review is based on an advanced reader copy of this book. Thank you for stopping by!

I shifted the phone to my other ear and asked her, “Did you just get in bed?”

“If, by bed, you mean carrying a glass of wine out back to swing in the hammock, maybe.”

I bit my bottom lip, my head falling back against the headrest. For most men, this would have been an innocuous statement. But for a hammock connoisseur like myself, this was the normal guy equivalent of her saying that she liked to give blowjobs during halftime.

“You have a hammock out back?”

There was a delay in her response, which was followed by a subtle kiss of her lips on what I assumed was a wine glass. “Don’t knock it until you try it. It’s one of the most underrated luxuries in outdoor furniture.”

“Oh, I’m not knocking anything. Rope or quilted?”

“Mayan, actually.”

“Oh, sweet heavenly baby Jesus, she’s beautiful and knows her hammocks. I’ve never been so turned on in my life.”

She giggled, pausing for another sip. “You know, if you leaked this hammock fetish to the press, you could probably increase demand by five million percent and singlehandedly lower the country’s unemployment rate.”

Okay, so at some point during the day, she’d figured out who I was.

But! Even with this knowledge, she was trying to avoid a date with me and was not elbow-deep in planning our televised wedding. This was a definite plus in my book.

“Yeah, but then, when I talked to beautiful women like yourself, I’d have no idea if the hammock was your idea or a ploy to impress me.”

“Jeez, that’s sad, Tanner,” she said, her sweet Southern accent like a wave rolling over my name.

I’d meant it as a joke, but it was the absolute truth when it came to dating. Early on in my career, I’d done a rapid-fire interview about my personal life. One of the questions had been: What would your ideal woman order on the first date? Truth be told, the only thing I hoped my ideal woman would order was something she wanted. I didn’t factor into that. But I’d been on my last question in my last interview of the last day of a month-long press tour. My face had hurt from fake smiling, I’d been in desperate need of a shower, a smoke, and sleep, and my mind had been mush, so I’d prattled off the first thing that had come to mind: shrimp and grits.

That one little answer somehow made it onto my Wiki page, and after that, every woman I’d taken out ordered shrimp and grits. One of them even had a shellfish allergy and nearly ended up in the hospital. And this insanity was not limited to women outside of the spotlight.

I’d once gone on a date with America’s princess of pop, Levee Williams. We’d hit it off at a charity event. For one of the most famous women in the world, she was a surprisingly nice girl, gorgeous, and funny as all get out. But the first time I took her out? One guess what she ordered.

I was at the end of my rope with dating and lost my freaking mind before storming out like an asshole. That night, as I was reporting shrimp and fucking grits as an error to Wiki, I noticed that her page listed it as her favorite food. I’d never had the balls to contact her again, and I once hid behind a palm tree on Rodeo Drive when I heard the clamoring of paparazzi calling her name. But that’s neither here nor there.

In short, while finding a woman was all too easy, dating was hard.

But that wasn’t about to stop me from trying with Rita.

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.

A Duke Changes Everything (The Duke’s Den #1) by Christy Carlyle #review #excerpt

In the first novel in Christy Carlyle’s sizzling Duke’s Den series, three men, intent on making a fortune, discover irresistible opportunities . . .

Nicholas Lyon gambled his way into a fortune and ownership of the most opulent, notorious gentlemen’s club in England. But when Nick’s cruel brother dies, he inherits a title he never wanted. The sooner Nick is rid of the estate that has always haunted him, the sooner he can return to the life he’s built in London. But there’s one obstacle—the exquisite Thomasina Thorne.

When the new heir to the Tremayne dukedom suddenly appears in Mina Thorne’s life, she’s flustered. Not only is he breathtakingly handsome, but he’s also determined to take away her home and position as steward of the Enderley estate. If Mina learns what makes the enigmatic duke tick, perhaps she can change his mind—as long as she doesn’t get too close to him.

With each day Nick spends with Mina, his resolve weakens as their colliding wills lead to explosive desire. Could she be the one woman who can help him finally bury the ghosts of his past?

My Review

Rating : 4.5 Stars

I loved, loved this one! I was hooked from the beginning, this was a book I read quite easily and enjoyed a lot. This book oozed with sweet unbridled romance that made me frantically flip through the pages! I was blown away by the intensity of the romance. The characterization is excellent, I liked both the hero and the heroine, they are a perfect match and they share a deep emotional connection.

Nicholas Lyon, Duke of Tremayne, is a survivor. Everything he has, he has worked for. A victim of his father’s cruelty, he has survived on the streets and is now the feared and respected owner of a gambling empire. He is a shrewd and ruthless man of business and he wants nothing to do with the ancestral Tremayne estate, Enderley Castle, a place he hates for good reason. He never wanted the title and the duties of the dukedom.

Mina Thorne is Enderley Castle’s steward. She hasn’t chosen her job, but she can’t give it up. She is dutiful, loyal and has no other prospects. Mina is an endearing heroine, witty, kindhearted, stubborn and brave.

What follows is a delicious slow-burn of a story in which Mina makes Nick believe in a happy future. She stands up to him, contradicts him and, most importantly, tells him the truth. She brings him around to seeing value in the estate and its people. The slow and beautiful transformation of Nick was truly breathtaking. Nick has a really good heart, but he doesn’t flaunt his goodness. Their romance leaves you with no doubt that these two were meant for each other. You’re bound to fall for them, to root for them. The ending was perfect and left me with a smile on my face and in a happy place.

Christy Carlyle is a superb writer, blending humor, sensitivity and depth of emotion in a way that pulled me in completely. Her writing is crisp, clever and witty. If you are looking for a historical romance that will have you smiling, sighing and blushing throughout, then this book is a good choice! It is the first in a new series and I can’t wait for Nick’s friends’ story.

Many thanks to the publisher and Pure Textuality PR for my copy of this book!

Excerpt

Nick looked at the dark drop of honey on her skin and his mouth watered. He licked his lips and looked into her eyes. The heat there made him want more. More moments like this with her. When there was no Enderley boxing them in, no duties that needed their attention. Just Mina and the odd, undeniable spark he’d felt between them from the day he arrived.

“I’d like a taste,” he told her quietly.

Mina bit her lip, and her brows dipped in concentration. She locked her gaze on his mouth and seemed to hold her breath as she slid a honeyed finger across his lower lip.

Nick swept his tongue out to taste and reached for her hand. Flavor burst inside his mouth in a shock of floral sweetness.

“Delicious,” he whispered before leaning closer, flicking his tongue out, and tasting the tip of her finger once more. “But I honestly can’t tell whether it’s you or the honey.”
