My Review of Baiting Him (How to Catch an Alpha #2) by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Baiting Him (How to Catch an Alpha #2)Baiting Him by Aurora Rose Reynolds
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Aurora Rose Reynolds has done it again! I love that when I read her books I know that I will be smiling a big old cheesey grin because I love a good Alpha male! I love a man who takes charge! And Gaston does take charge in a way only ARR could write! She's the queen of Alpha Males!

Gaston, the owner of 3 successful bars, doesn't lack any female attention. He has plenty of women who are waiting to be the mistress of his bars. They just fall at his feet and he has become pretty good at ignoring them. When he meets Chrissie, it's not instant love but instant attraction. She stirs up something in him that he thought was lost.

Chrissie is living her dream by owning a bakery. Her bakery keep her busy and she doesn't have a lot of time to date. So her running into Gaston happens by chance! Their first encounter will make you laugh and swoon! It's adorable and I was grinning from ear to ear when I read it.

Baiting Him is the 2nd book in a series but can be read as a standalone. This book is a feel good read that will leave you swooning over Gaston, smiling and just happy. ARR does a good job of doing that with all of her books!

My Review of When She Remembers by Hope Jones

When She RemembersWhen She Remembers by Hope Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When She Remembers isn't your typical 2nd chance romance book but then again it is! Henley, our resiliant and feisty heroine not only fell in love once but gets to do it all over again with the same guy! What a lucky girl!

Henley wakes up from a coma and thinks it's 2014. She finds it hard to believe that she wasn't just out with her friend Tuesday at a college bar the night before. To add to the confusion even more, a handsome stranger is in her hospital room and seems very familiar with her.

Graham is all alpha and doesn't seem to be pleased that his wife doesn't remember him. He knows that he can't push himself onto her too quickly or they won't ever reach a good understanding of each other. It kills him deep down and he vows to make her remember him and their love story.

Henley and Graham prove to want to work hard to remember the love they shared. But there are obstacles and mystery along the way that interferes. This 2nd chance is going to prove to be harder than they had hoped.

Collision by Nicole Banks




Collision by Nicole Banks


Series: Shattered Hearts; Book 3
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Contemporary Romance



Eight years was a long time to be gone.
I changed and I knew the people I was going home to changed as well.
I never wanted to leave her, but circumstances forced me to walk away and I chose not to look back.
But I'm finally home and ready to reclaim all that I lost with Kris.
I hoped the decisions I made in my past didn't come back to haunt me.

He's been gone for eight years.
Left without ever saying goodbye to me.
He chose to walk away from us, never letting me decide whether I wanted to live my life with him.
I had to learn how to move on and mourn the loss of what could have been.
Eight years was a long time to be gone.
Too bad my heart didn't understand the concept of time.

About the Author

Creatively living through music, writing and yoga.

I love the arts and how they move you and make you feel.

Reading has always been a great love of mine right after my love of music. Each song written is a story waiting to be told. Which, along with my over active imagination fueled by desire to write about the chaos that goes on in my head.

I love stringing words together. I love making people get lost in a story and connecting with fictional characters that remind them of someone they know.

I published my first book Shattered in 2013. It's the first installment in the Shattered Hearts Series.
Shattered started out as an assignment for a college course I took at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. After I graduated college I went through my old papers and reconnected with the story morphing into so much more then what I wrote in my college course.

Now you can find me doing yoga, listening to music and working on getting out all the stories in m head, including dabbling in poetry. (Which I've always had a secret love affair with).

HANDLE WITH CARE by Helena Hunting

HWC - BT banner

“Lincoln and Wren had me flipping through the pages frantically, begging for more. Their chemistry was explosive, their love story both hilarious and tender.”- L.J. Shen, USA Today bestselling author

Handle With Care, an all-new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is available now!

12_13_Handle With Care (1) 6.00.05 PM

HE WANTS TO LOSE CONTROL.

Between his parents’ messed up marriage and his narcissistic younger brother, Lincoln Moorehead has spent the majority of his life avoiding his family. After the death of his father, Lincoln finds himself in the middle of the drama. To top it all off, he’s been named CEO of Moorehead Media, much to his brother’s chagrin. But Lincoln’s bad attitude softens when he meets the no-nonsense, gorgeous woman who has been given the task of transforming him from the gruff, wilderness guy to a suave businessman

SHE’S TRYING TO HOLD IT TOGETHER.

Wren Sterling has been working double time to keep the indiscretions at Moorehead Media at bay, so when she’s presented with a new contract, with new responsibilities and additional incentives, she agrees. Working with the reclusive oldest son of a ridiculously entitled family is worth the hassle if it means she’s that much closer to pursuing her own dreams. What Wren doesn’t expect is to find herself attracted to him, or for it to be mutual. And she certainly doesn’t expect to fall for Lincoln. But when a shocking new Moorehead scandal comes to light, she’s forced to choose between her own family and the broody, cynical CEO.

Excerpt:

“You have a suit fitting tomorrow morning.” “Tomorrow morning? I have lots of suits; I’ll make one of those work.” “Are they like the ones you wore to the funeral?” I ask. “Yeah, why?” “Well, they may have fit you five years ago, but they certainly don’t fit you now. I’ll text you the details and add them to your personal calendar.” “You can’t do that without my cell number.” His smugness would be grating if I wasn’t two steps ahead of him. I flash a fake smile. “I already have all of your personal details, Lincoln. Right down to your shoe size. And you can’t be late like you were this morning, so it might be a good idea to avoid the scotch tonight so you’re less bear and more human. You’ll need to use these things called manners. I can email you a refresher on what those are, should you need it.” “Sarcasm is a weapon of the weak.” My ears are on fire as he heads for the door. Jerk. I was being witty, not sarcastic. “Thanks so much for offering to help clean up the mess you made.” I turn to address the crinkled papers scattered on the floor. It’s common courtesy to offer assistance if you’re the one who made the damn mess. Even Armstrong, who is the most epic of douches, has some manners. Usually he’ll try to look up a skirt or down a shirt while he’s being polite, but it’s better than this. I turn to retrieve the papers when two things happen, a power surge ramps up the box fans—it happens at least twice a day, and at the same time Lincoln pulls the door open again. The simultaneous actions create a vortex of air inside my office, and my skirt flutters into the air. Like I’m Marilyn Monroe and I’ve stepped onto one of those subway grates. The fabric rises quickly, and a breeze hits me right between the legs, which is the exact moment I remember that I’m not wearing panties. Because they were covered in the coffee Armstrong spilled in my lap. I drop the papers and battle the fabric back down. It’s fruitless, though, the wind tunnel whirls through the room like Dorothy’s freaking tornado, and the back of my dress goes up. I meet Lincoln’s gaze from across the small room. All it takes is a second of eye contact before those ridiculously blue eyes pull me in, and weird, inappropriate things start happening to my body. It’s irritating as hell. I don’t even like this guy, but my body seems as if it hasn’t gotten the same memo as the rest of me. Even more aggravating is the realization that based on his expression, he totally caught an eyeful of cooch. Lincoln stands frozen at the door, eyes wide and fixed on my crotch, mouth hanging open. “Close the damn door!” My voice is siren high. And loud. “Right. Yes. I’m going. Now.” He steps out of my office, pulling the door closed behind him. My dress settles around my knees. “Dammit.” I drop into my chair, which is probably what I should’ve done as soon as the wind tunnel started, but clearly I’d been too panicked to think straight. On the upside, I went to see my waxer last week, so he’s seen my girl bits when they’re looking their finest. On the downside, my project for the next six months has seen my naked girl bits.

This is the author's first book and she did an amazing job! I'm hooked and can't wait for her next one!

Dustin Hanes has made a career out of a life of crime. He has lost all hope after a major loss in his life and doesn't care what happens to him anymore. He knows he has disappointed the only person who ever believed there was just a tiny bit of good in him and has choose to pay the devil his due.

Odilia is a sweet girl who doesn't really know what she wants out of life. She's trying to lead a life that isn't really for her just to please her parents. Odilia needs someone to help guide her away from being underneath her parent's thumbs.

Heaven and Hell will clash when Dustin and Odilia meet. The Devil will definitely take advantage of the Sweet Angel that is trying to save him. Will she succeed? Or will they both combust into flames?

Vindicated was very well written and I look foward to more bad boys from Misty!

Blurb: Ethan Valor thought he had it all with a career he was meant for, and the perfect family at home. But when his wife unexpectedly filed for divorce, he moved into his sister’s condo. Needing a nightcap after a long day on the police force, Ethan decided to go to the neighborhood bar that, in his family, was known to bring people together. Or, in his case, bring his first love back into his life.

Reagan McCormick moved back to Chicago after twenty-three years. Divorced, and with a daughter in college, it was time for Reagan to focus on what made her happy. Wanting to make new friends and extra cash while in school, Reagan gets a job as a bartender. A blast from the past blows into her bar one night proving that moving back to the Windy City was the right decision to make.

What Ethan and Reagan didn’t expect was how easy it would be to start over together. Or how their career paths would dangerously intertwine …

When a serial killer strikes Murder City, Ethan will stop at nothing to keep Reagan safe. But how safe could they be when someone was always watching?

The game of love always goes on. And their game was just beginning.

   

Excerpt: “Did you solve the case?”

He let out a long, deep breath. 

“No, far from it.”

“What’s it about?”

He leaned closer and grinned. “Can’t tell you that, Buttercup. It’s confidential.

“Really?”

Ethan nodded. “Really. But when we go on the ride-along, you’ll sign an NDA, and then you can know all about whatever we come across.”

“I’m excited.”

“If it’s anything like what I saw last night, then we’ll know for sure if you can be CSI.”

“It was bad?”

Ethan leaned back. “Yeah. Worst murder I’ve ever seen.”

“Wow,” I breathed and took another sip of water. “Well, I’m excited. Class has been fun so far. It will be good for me.”

“Want me to come over when I get off work, and we can study?”

I raised an eyebrow.

“I mean it. I can answer questions if you have them.”

The waitress came and took our order. After she left, I said, “I’d rather study like we used to study.”

He choked on a sip of water. “Really?”

I leaned forward, resting my forearms on the table. “Tell me if I’m reading this wrong. You took me home, let me sleep in your bed, gave me a key to your place, invited me to lunch, and offered to see me again tonight when you’re working on what I assume is a big case since you said it was the worst murder you’ve ever seen.”

Ethan grinned slowly. “Reagan Hunter, are you telling me that you want to study?” He put air quotes around “study,” causing me to bite my lip.

“Yeah, Ethan Valor. I want to study. All. Night. Long.”

“Check, please!”
