LIOOS goes to RARE17- Penny Reid


Title: Neanderthal Seeks Human 
Author: Penny Reid 
Synopsis: There are three things you need to know about Janie Morris: 1) She is incapable of engaging in a conversation without volunteering TMTI (Too Much Trivial Information), especially when she is unnerved, 2) No one unnerves her more than Quinn Sullivan, and 3) She doesn't know how to knit. After losing her boyfriend, apartment, and job in the same day, Janie Morris can't help wondering what new torment fate has in store. To her utter mortification, Quinn Sullivan- aka Sir McHotpants- witnesses it all then keeps turning up like a pair of shoes you lust after but can't afford. The last thing she expects is for Quinn- the focus of her slightly, albeit harmless, stalkerish tendencies- to make her an offer she can't refuse.







I love this book so much that I´ve been non- stop reading the whole weekend all the other books in the series. My eyes feel like gritty sandpaper after the reading marathon but it was so worth it! This is not my first rodeo in Penny Reid´s awesomeness of books but I swear every new book I read from her has me falling in love once again for her writing. I haven´t read anyone with such a unique writing style. It is captivating, witty, heartfelt and hilarious all at the same time.

Neanderthal Seeks Human is the 1st book in the Knitting in the City series and after reading all the available title in this series I can say without a doubt that it is my favourite. The beginning of this book was like landing in the middle of the ocean. It was sudden, unexpected and had me thinking "who the hell is Janie"? But then Sir McHotpants aka Quinn comes in and is like a flying unicorn suddenly appeared, it was something truly magical. All the nerdy things and characters in this book suited perfectly my inner geek because in the end we are all freaks about a certain topic. I proudly consider myself a book nerd, so why not embrace it? That´s what this series of books is about, in accepting your wonderfully unique personality with every quirk and flaw and about making the most of it. It was something truly eye-opening for myself.

I have only praise and admiration for this book and its author, I wouldn´t change anything about it! The main characters are amazingly developed and the secondary characters bring even more live to the whole story. And I can assure you that you won´t be able to stop on the first book, is like and inner compulsion that makes you want more and more!

Blog Tour: Kaden (Recherché #2) by Brit Lauren



Title: Kaden (Recherché #2) 
Author: Brit Lauren 
Synopsis: I’m selling your fantasy. Are you buying? My name is Kaden Ryan and I’m a male escort. I never intended to become an escort, but an opportunity fell into my lap and I took it. It was simple: get paid for sex, an orgasm, a night of pleasure. It's certainly an easy way to work my way through medical school. But not everyone's fantasy is as simple as an orgasm. Some women like the game, and one in particular wants to push me to places I never thought I would go, paid or otherwise. She's going to be the one to give me a real education.



Free in Kindle Unlimited


ALSO AVAILABLE IN THE RECHERCHE SERIES

#1 Thor

Free in Kindle Unlimited









MY REVIEW: 
 Kaden is the second book in The Recherché series but it can be read as a standalone and it is what I did because I haven´t read Thor.

The narrative of this book is addictive, the story is mainly told from Kaden´s POV and his character is as charming, sexy and drop dead gorgeous as you would expect from a high prized male escort.  This book is not your regular romance mainly because there is no love. Kaden is lust, sex, temptation and hotness in a devilish yet sweet package. I am not usually into books that have no romance at all but Kaden was the exception mainly because the only character who may have been Kaden´s love interest wasn´t a match for him from my point of view.

Even though is an erotic book I didn´t feel like it was too much sex, it had the perfect balance between sexy times and regular life. I simply loved this book because it made me have a good time while reading it and because Kaden is one of the best developed male characters I have read in quite some time.

I really recommend this book, it is highly entertaining and Kaden is addiction as its purest form.

She thinks it's only a one night stand, but Bethany is anything but a fling to Jenson. He's been waiting for someone to make him feel the way she does, her sharp tongue and delicious curves undoing him from the beginning. Jenson is hellbent on proving he is the man for her, the only man that can make her eyes light up when she laughs and her body sing beneath his hands. But can Jenson convince Bethany that there's more to him than meets the eye? Or will his flirty grin and dogged persistence put her off men forever? Jenson is determined to find out, because he's got one last play tucked in his pocket, The Panty Play.

Excerpt
I woke the next morning with a faint pounding in the back of my head. Scrubbing at my face, I glanced down to find myself twisted in the sheets. I sighed and stretched, feeling sore in a wide, new array of places. As my fingers traced circles in the softness of the fabric, the fog lifted and my less than moral actions from last night combusted in my memory. I slowly turned to see the handsome stranger from last night soundly asleep beside me. Well, at least I didn’t have rose-tinted glasses. The man was definitely what my sister, Taylor, would call “fine.” He had a perfectly chiseled face, muscles that were rock hard and well sculpted, and big hands. And I knew their size matched up with another large member on his divine body...
I tore the sheet off me and sat up in bed, startled to find I was wearing nothing but my birthday suit. Here I was in all my naked glory. I looked around for my clothing. To my horror, I saw my dress was on the floor in multiple pieces. Jenson had apparently shredded it. In a frantic panic, I found a large New England Red Bulls jersey and tossed it over my head. I couldn’t wear just this jersey, even though it was longer than that flimsy fabric I was wearing last night.
I needed to get out of there. I quickly went to the bathroom to make sure I didn’t look like a morning after nightmare. I found a new toothbrush tucked in a drawer.
I finished my teeth and ran a brush through my hair, thinking it looked especially wild this morning. I grabbed a lock and pulled it across my nose, taking a whiff and expecting to find the scent of stale cigarette smoke.
Instead, I was hit with a wave of heady arousal.
Notes of leather and spice filled my nostrils. Ice-blue eyes. A reckless mop of dark hair.
Oh God.
“What did I do?” I squeaked before tracing my lips with my fingertips, feeling slightly bruised from too much kissing. I didn't think I'd had that much to drink, but apparently the shots and the music and everything about him had gone to my head. Snapshots of last night flooded me. I didn't do things like this, impersonal sex was never on my agenda, what was I thinking?
“Shit.”
I ran out of there like a bat out of hell, with nothing on but a soccer jersey.
Damn. Shit. Fuck.

MY REVIEW:

I was surprised by this book as a whole. When I first read the synopsis I thought this book was going to go into a certain direction but it didn´t and I do love when a book surprises me.

Bending Bethany starts with a bang and follows a well paced story line taht for my liking could have been more developed because the missing star in my review comes from shortage of words. I felt like there could be more story in this book. Don´t get me wrong, the book is wonderfully narrated and there are no missing plot spot on the story is just that I was waiting for me and it left me hanging.

Both main characters Bethany and Jenson are really lovable and with just a couple of lines the author has been able to describe them so you don´t even have to doubt about their looks or personalities.

 Even though this is my first book by Aria Cole, I can say undoubtedly that it won´t be the last. Bending Bethany is the perfect scape book that you can read either before bed, at the beach or in a cozy day at home.

REVIEW: Your Forever Love (The Bennett Family #3) by Layla Hagen


Title: Your Forever Love (The Bennett Family #3) 
Author: Layla Hagen 
Synopsis: Eric Callahan is a powerful man, and his sharp business sense has earned him the nickname Shark. Yet under the strict façade is a man who loves his daughter and would do anything for her. When he and his daughter move to San Francisco for three months, he has one thing in mind: expanding his business on the West Coast. As a widower, Eric is not looking for love. He focuses on his company, and his daughter. Until he meets Pippa Bennett. She captivates him from the moment he sets eyes on her, and what starts as unintentional flirting soon spirals into something neither of them can control. Pippa Bennett knows she should stay away from Eric Callahan. After going through a rough divorce, she doesn’t trust men anymore. But there’s something about Eric that just draws her in. He has a body made for sin, and a sense of humor that matches hers. Not to mention that seeing how adorable he is with his daughter melts Pippa’s walls one by one. The chemistry between them is undeniable, but it’s the connection that grows deeper every day that has both of them wonder if love might be within their reach. When it’s time for Eric and his daughter to head back home, will he give up on the woman who has captured his heart or will he do everything in his power to remain by her side?


My Review:

I´ve loved Layla Hagen´s stories since I first read a book by her which was Lost in Us. I´ve been lucky enough to appreciate her evolution as a writer through her beautiful stories.  In her #Lost series I was amazed by her storytelling charm, in Withering Hope the characters´complexity, depth and above all the feelings both characters made me feel. And finally with The Bennett Family series, the utterly addictive dialogues and banter between all the sets of characters kept me on my toes the whole time.

Your Forever Love is the third instalment on The Bennett Family series and is the only one I have read from this series but I am planning on fixing it as soon as possible because I so want to stay immersed in this amazing world.  I´ve always been spellbound by the city of San Francisco since I first visited it 6 years ago and this book has make me want to go back there.

The chemistry between Eric and Pippa is out of the charts and I am simply in love with both of them. Pippa is independent, brave, caring and protective of her family, and even though she has been hurt before she is willing to give love a second chance. However, Eric who has also been hurt is more reticent to open not just his heart but also his daughter´s heart to new chances at love. At the same time, all the secondary characters have their own true personalities that make you want to keep reading all the books just to discover how each of their stories will end.


All in all, I am enamored with Layla Hagen´s books, they are the perfect mix of beloved characters, believable stories, catching dialogues and beautiful settings. I would undoubtedly recommend this book to everyone who loves a good witty and funny romance with scorching scenes that will leave you wanting for more Bennett family adventures.
