Review of my favourite novella

Back in the Game by Meghan Quinn
This novella was AWESOME! I really hope we will get more of "Wanda the Fairy" and Rachel😂
Their story was captivating, the banter amazing, one of the best I've ever seen! Rachel and Calder were really made for each other. I mean, after their first exchange, I was already planning their wedding day in my mind! They are one of those couples who are just simply perfect for each other. 

As I was saying, their wittiness was great! Such hilarious person, with a prompt reply for everything... it was a blast reading their dialogues or text exchanges😍

Another thing that I loved was getting to know Calder... I loved everything about him, he was such a great guy, with good values and his priorities right on the spot. And it was soooo sweet to read about their first phone call and first date... His embarrassment and insecurity were made even more special by the fact that on the outside he appeared like this though guy with no worries.
And his love for his daughter, Shea😍

Last thing, even if it was a novella, it didn't feel rushed or with some missing parts... the story flowed really well, with a really good storyline and it felt absolutely a complete story.

Cover Reveal: The Wonder of You (A Different Kind of Wonderland) by Harper Kincaid


Check out the cover of THE WONDER OF YOU by Harper Kincaid. This is a modern-day, romantic re-telling of Alice in Wonderland and it releases on Febriary 13th, 2018. 


Title: The Wonder of You
Series: A Different Kind of Wonderland #1
Author: Harper Kincaid 
Release Date: February 13th, 2018

Synopsis:

What if Alice didn’t fall down the rabbit hole, but instead, travelled through Lincoln Tunnel into another kind of Wonderland:

New York City.

The best day of twenty-five year old Alice Leighton’s life was the day she got to put her nothing special, lil Southern town in her rear-view mirror. Good-bye to phony ‘bless your hearts’ and ‘I’ll pray for you’ crap, all while talking trash behind her back. She’s New York City’s latest addition and she’s going to work her ass off proving she earned her spot in the country’s top grad program.

Never again will she let some jerk derail her future and break her heart. Oh, and no more players. She’s D.O.N.E with the ‘cool guys’.

Getting caught up in Dare Grangeworth, the art world’s resident bad boy, was not part of her Alice 2.0 plan, even if he is just her type, with his beard, tats sleeves and intense green eyes. When he’s not dodging the press or his cultish fan base, Dare’s making art that makes a statement. Women seem to lose their heads around him – all the more reason why he finds Alice’s candor refreshing. He’s used to women giving in – not giving attitude.

He has to get to know this girl, even if it means allowing himself to be the subject of her research. Before too long, he becomes more than a simple outlier she can explain away. And for him everything starts to feel larger than life and upside down, like a heady rush, all while desperately trying not to lose his heart.

Become lost and found in this re-imagined story of Alice and her cast of characters, in a world where Wonderland meets Sex-and-the-City.

Blog Tour & Review: Miss Mechanic by Emma Hart


 




Title: Miss Mechanic
Author: Emma Hart 
Release Date: December 12th, 2017

Synopsis:
Two mechanics. One rivalry.

She’ll prove she’s as good as she says she is.

He’ll prove her place isn’t under the hood.

It’s over it.

  “Don’t let the bastards get you down.”

For twenty-six years, I lived by my daddy’s motto. Which is why “Mechanic Wanted” is all it takes for me to apply for the job at the garage we once owned.

And I meet the biggest bastard of them all.

Dexter Ryne. Hotter than Hell in July and a firm believer that my place is on reception, taking phone calls and looking pretty. Not getting dirty under the hood of a car.

Determined to prove each other wrong, we make a deal.

I have three weeks to prove my worth as a mechanic. If I don’t, I’m on telephone duty.

If I do, he’ll accept defeat and make my job permanent.

Now, all I have to do is fight my attraction to the cocky little… beep.

Problem is, an engine isn’t the only thing he knows how to make purr…

Excerpt:

“Can I help you?” I asked.

He blinked and met my eyes.

“What the hell are you doing over there?” I pushed to stand up straight.

“Right now?” He capped his water bottle. “Well, honestly… I’m just thinking you’d look better over the hood of that car than under it.”

I unhooked the hood and slammed it down, spinning on the balls of my feet.

Our eyes met properly. I didn’t like what I saw in his—desire, attraction, need. Which was obviously why a shiver ran down my spine.

I cocked a hip, putting my hand on it. “The only time you will ever get me over a hood of a car is if a wiper blade needs changing. So, unless you’re a wiper blade...”

Dex pulled his phone from his pocket and started tapping the screen.

I blinked. “What are you doing?”

He peered up at me through his unfairly thick eyelashes. “Seeing if I can get a wiper blade costume for Halloween.”

“I don’t even know how to respond to that.”

“You can buy wiper blade glasses.”

“What?”

He raised his eyebrows. “And a lady here on eBay will hand-make any costume. There’s my Halloween sorted.”

I stared at him. “You’re not getting me over anything, Dex. Definitely not a car hood. No matter what you think.”

He clutched his chest dramatically. “You wound me.”

“Unfortunately not fatally,” I muttered.

“You also underestimate me.”

“There’s a lot of that going around in this garage.” I put the bottle of coolant away.

“Touché.”

“Thank you.”

“Can I ask you something?”

I sighed and turned to face him again. “What?”

Earnestly, he asked, “Can you stop wearing those tiny shorts? Or yoga pants that make me want to touch your ass every five minutes?”

I looked down at the ripped shorts of my dungarees. “Can you keep your thoughts to yourself? Control yourself, maybe? Not look at me and see someone worth screwing?”

My Review:
OMFG!!! This was a blast. And exactly what the doctor ordered to lift my spirits up :D To be honest, this has been one of the funniest stories I've read in recent times. I was belly laughing on practically every page :D And yes, the story in itself is not something that will stay in your heart forever with it's incredible characters and mind blowing story line. But one think I can promise you, is that you will remember the hilarious banter between Jamie and Dex and laugh every time when it comes to mind :)

So yes, Jamie and Dex are definitely two intriguing characters. I love that Jamie represents a strong woman in a male world (being one of those, I know what a pain that can be). But a book is not about gender equality and so on (even if the subject is touched in it). It is simply book written to make you laugh. The constant banter between Jamie and Dex is brilliantly hilarious. And that of course, increases the hot factor between them to combustible proportions. You can practically feel the heat through the pages ;)

So, if you are looking for a read that will put you in a great mood for the holidays, definitely check Miss Mechanic. I can guarantee that you will be belly laughing within the first few minutes. And if that's not enough for you, I can guarantee that the heat created by the smart banter between Jamie and Dex will simply scorch your kindle ;) I can't wait to find out what will be next by the amazing Emma Hart :)

MAN HANDS by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby is LIVE!


He puts the "screw" in screwball comedy...

BRYNN
At thirty-four, I’m reeling from a divorce. I don’t want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn’s Dips and Balls.
But my friends aren’t having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I’m still taking a hard pass. 
Free designer cocktails, they say. And that’s a game-changer. 
Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That’s when I lose my mind. But when my besties dare me to leap on the first single man I see, they don't expect me to actually go through with it.

TOM
All I need right now is some peace and quiet while my home renovation TV show is on hiatus. But when a curvy woman in a red wrap dress charges me like she’s a gymnast about to mount my high bar, all I can do is brace myself and catch her. What follows is the hottest experience of my adult life. 
I want a repeat, but my flying Cinderella disappears immediately afterward. She doesn’t leave a glass slipper, either—just a pair of panties with chocolate bunnies printed on them. 
But I will find her.


GRAB IT NOW!


REVIEW
What a great read! Man Hands is the perfect book if you are in need of something funny and light! 
I loved the banter of this book, and some dialogues were simply hilarious 😂

Brynn and Tom's Story starts with a bang, literally. Their attraction is immediate and scorching, but I loved that it wasn't cheesy or a "I love you even if I've known you for 1 min" type of attraction. 

The first word that comes to my mind thinking about their relationship is hot, because their sexual chemistry is for sure woooo. And it was described perfectly, without going over the top:) 

Their relationship, after the first encounter, progresses quickly, thanks also to the agreement between Brynn and Tom. It was lovely to see how it changed to something more than a simple sexual relationship. 
One thing that I really appreciated is that both Brynn and Tom were down to earth, a little self-deprecating, so I had a great time reading their story.

Oh, and last thing: no drama! Absolutely no gratuitous drama, and this is always a huge plus for me!

So yes, absolutely, read this book, you will for sure have a great time!



Blog Tour & Review: Torrid Little Affair (Forbidden Desires #3) by Kendall Ryan


TLA Amazon

Title: Torrid Little Affair
Series: Forbidden Desires  #3
Author: Kendall Ryan 
Release Date: December 11th, 2017

Synopsis:

The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.

My Review:
Kendall Ryan is one of my favorite authors and to be honest, probably one of my #1click addictions. And that definitely hasn't changed since I started reading the Forbidden Desires series. And Yes, I was all rooting for Gavin in the first two books simply because I knew that he and Emma belonged together. But that's not to mean that I didn't have a special spot for Cooper. I just always knew that his story and HEA will be something worth waiting for. And I was so right. This story is simply intriguing and so heartbreaking. But ultimately, it is a story of finding your other half and doing everything in your power to be with them.

Cooper and Corinne are two intriguing characters. Both their childhoods weren't a walk in the the park and have left them with some deep scars that continue affecting their lives. But once their eyes meet for the first time, things become complicated and protecting your heart from being broken is no longer an option. They recognize the pain and thirst for escape in each other. But what starts as something completely physical, changes quite fast to a relationship that involves so much more than feelings. The love that develops between the two characters is strong and beautiful. But there are also secrets between the two lovers that can tear them apart.

As a whole I really enjoyed this story. It is definitely hot, it is intriguing and it is definitely heartbreaking. If you've loved the first two books in the series, you will definitely love this one. And the beauty of it is, that it is a standalone. You do get appearances from Gavin and Emma, but if you haven't read the first two books, you still get all the background you need. So yes, definitely a recommended read :) As for me, I can't wait for Quinn's story. That one will be definitely interesting. And I am sure the woman that catches his attention will be a very special one :)

Excerpt
“I need to apologize,” he said to my back as I hurried into my sitting room. My shoulders hunched to my neck at the words. I couldn’t look at him.
What did he want me to say? That it was okay?
Because it wasn’t.
No one, no matter what, should have to be subjected to what that woman said to me.
Henry’s mother!
He was in Cloud Cuckoo Land if he thought this, whatever this was between us, could ever work out when his mother thought so little of me.
“Just go,” I snapped, not looking at him.
“No,” he said, his tone stern. “Not until you turn around and look at me.”
I shot him a glare over my shoulder. “Satisfied? Now leave.”
Instead of leaving, he studied my face, softening as if he understood what was going on behind my fury.
But he didn’t understand.
“I cannot apologize enough for what my mother said to you. Frankly, right now I’m ashamed I share DNA with the woman. That was the reason I was avoiding her. She’s … bad with the women I date normally, even the ones she’s set me up with. No one is good enough. Usually, it’s merely irritating, but I didn’t want to subject you to her. And if I had known how goddamn low she’d sink tonight, I never would’ve put you in that situation.”
I heard his words, but I couldn’t feel them. I couldn’t feel the anger and worry in them that I’d later remember. In that moment, all I saw were the flowers peeking over the top of the trash can behind him. Flowers that had arrived at my apartment earlier that afternoon. Flowers that meant he’d found my home address. Flowers that taunted me, saying, “You can’t be angry at Penelope Lexington when you know she’d feel smug with satisfaction if she ever discovered the truth.” She’d feel vindicated in her opinion of me.
Worse would be how Henry would react if he knew the truth. How he’d never look at me the same way again. He’d never look at me in that way that was getting under my skin, becoming an addiction, despite all the defenses I’d tried to put up against him.
A chill shivered down my spine.
“Nadia, what can I do? What—”
“If you’re not going to leave,” I turned around to fully face him, “then we might as well get this over with.”
Henry watched with narrowed eyes as I threw my purse on the couch and then removed my earrings. “What are you doing?”
Cold, toneless, I reminded him, “Our arrangement is almost over. A deal is a deal.”
“A deal is a deal?” The muscle in his jaw twitched, his eyes flashing. “You’re going to fuck me like some martyr?”
“Well, I’d prefer it if you leave but I don’t welch on a deal.”
“Nadia, don’t hide from me.” I could hear the barely contained fury beneath his words and in a twisted way, I reveled in it. I wanted his anger. I wanted to force him to walk away and walk away for good. “Talk to me.”
I scoffed. “Why do you keep trying to make this more than it is? You wanted to slum it with the local weather girl. I wanted to get laid because it’s been a while. You just happened to be there and I’ve heard you’re good. That’s all this ever was. And I’m not one of your uptight society princesses who needs to be assured you want more from me than a dirty fuck.”
“Nadia …”
I didn’t heed the growl of warning in his voice. “Let me make it clearer,” I hissed out, all my rage at myself redirected at him like I knew and feared would happen. “I don’t do relationships with spoiled rich boys who run away from their mommas. I’ll let a rich boy fuck me for the hell of it, but rest assured when I do let someone in long-term, it’ll be a man.
Not even a second later, Henry crossed the distance between us, one hand tangling into my pinned-up hair, the other around my waist. He yanked me roughly against him before I could blink and slammed his mouth down over mine in a hard, punishing kiss.

Review
Yessss, finally! You can't imagine my excitement while reading this book 😍
I fell in love with Henry and Nadia in Hero, and always hoped to read their story <3

Nadia and Henry's story begins for sure with a clash: a misunderstanding made sure their first encounter was not one to be forgotten! From then on, I was hooked and fell more and more in love with this awesome couple.

Nadia and Henry's relationship was 😍 I absolutely loved Henry, his hidden qualities and the force of his love for Nadia. Nadia, on the other hand, had to overcome some obstacles, her past made her skittish about beginning a new relationship and for sure she struggled a little to let herself go... but in the end, Henry won her hearth, how couldn't he? 

It was really interesting to see some aspects of their world, full of rich and famous people, with its pros and cons, included some difficult compromises people have to take to survive in that tough world. 

I definitely recommend to read this book, Samantha Young creates once again a great couple who will steal your hearts <3
