He’s So Fine – Lucky Harbor Book 11 by Jill Shalvis ~New Release~

He's So Fine

Book: He’s So Fine

Author: Jill Shalvis

Publisher: Grand Central Publishing

Release Date: September 30, 2014

Genre: Contemporary Romance

For Olivia Bentley, Lucky Harbor is more than the town where she runs her new vintage shop. It’s the place where folks are friendly to strangers-and nobody knows her real name. Olivia does a good job of keeping her past buried, not getting too cozy with anyone . . . until she sees a man drowning. Suddenly she’s rushing into the surf, getting up close and personal with the hottest guy she’s ever laid hands on.

Charter boat captain Cole Donovan has no problem with a gorgeous woman throwing her arms around his neck in an effort to “save” him. In fact, he’d like to spend a lot more time skin-to-skin with Olivia. He’s just not expecting that real trouble is about to come her way. Will it bring her deeper into Cole’s heart, or will it be the end of Olivia’s days in little Lucky Harbor?



“Dry off,” Cole said, and stepped back from Olivia.

She nodded but didn’t move.

“Olivia?” he asked.

Her face was a mask of misery. “M­m­my arms won’t w­w­work.”

Shit. He quickly and gently pushed her back down to the bench, sat at her side, and began to pile blankets over the top of them both.

“W­what are you d­doing?”

“Sharing my body heat,” he said.

“I c­c­can’t feel any h­h­heat.”

“You will.” Beneath the blankets, he reached for the towel she still had wrapped around her. “Don’t freak,” he warned. “I’m just going to remove the wet towel and pull you into me.”

She opened her mouth, but using her sluggishness to his benefit, Cole quicklystripped the towel away from her, wrapping his arms around her, pulling her into him as two things happened simultaneously. One, she squeaked. Probably trying to formulate her next threat.

And two—holy shit—he realized she was completely, totally, one hundred percent naked beneath the layer of blankets.

And pissed. “Y­y­your pants!” she gasped. “Th­th­they’re c­c­cold!”

“Sorry, but I’m trying to do the right thing here,” he said through clenched teeth. Jesus. He couldn’t see a thing below her neck, but he could sure as hell feel her. His hands were on her hip and low on her back, respectively, not touching anything he shouldn’t be, but damn she was soft, and at the feel of her, his brain clicked off. Just completely flatlined.

Sweet Addiction by J. Daniels ~New Review~


Sweet Addiction (Sweet Addiction, #1)Sweet Addiction by J. Daniels

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sweet Addiction by J. Daniels was a great read! I one-clicked this one when it was a free and I would gladly have paid for this book.

Right away, Ms. Daniels had my attention…hooking up with a hot dude at a wedding…LOVED it! This story had great flow and the plot line had me wanting to know where the author was going to take me.

Dylan Sparks was a fun character. I enjoyed her feistiness but I would have liked to have seen a little more background into her indecisiveness, I just didn’t feel it. Reese Carroll, a sexy and mildly dominant alpha who is NOT a billionaire! Thank you Ms. Daniels for giving us a successful businessman who isn’t a kinky, messed-up billionaire. The supporting characters in Sweet Addiction really helped make this book. LOVED Joey, he’s definitely my favourite! There was amazing chemistry between this group of friends and for me, it really helped make the story.

Sweet Addiction is definitely a book worth reading not only for the great characters and interesting storyline. This book was an easy read that was fun and sexy. The kind of story I could get lost in and forget about the stresses of daily life. If you are looking for a great romance that isn’t heavy or way too far-fetched, check out Sweet Addiction. This might be the sweet treat you have been looking for, it was for me. 🙂  Nic

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

⭐️Hello Lord Rothvale❤️Another MUST read from Raine Miller❤️ Priceless is DEFINITELY the beginning of another BRILLIANT series by the incredible Ms. Miller. ⭐️

I have been a HUGE fan of The Blackstone Affair since it was released. Fabulous characters, incredible sexy story – just an amazing series that I have read over and over again. I was beyond thrilled to find out that there would be a spinoff series, the Rothvale Legacy! And so far…OHH.FLIPPIN’.EMM.GEEEE!!! It’s everything I hoped it would be and so much more! Again, I am blown away by the fact that Raine Miller has written another brilliant story about a Brit, and if it wasn’t for the fact that I know she is American I would never have been able to tell by her writing.

Ivan is EFFING HOT! Mitts off ladies, He.Is.Mine!!! A Lord and former Olympian who happens to have one hell of an art collection…Where do I sign up?? Kinky alpha on the inside, English gentleman on the outside…YU-UUUUM❤️ Where do I find me one of these 😉 Gabrielle is a gorgeous character, she’s sexy, witty and doesn’t take crap from anyone, especially Ivan. Thank you, yet again Ms. Miller, for creating a strong female character who is a joy to read about. I look forward to getting to know her even better.

This book takes off from the get-go! Make sure you have a fan around to cool yourself down! Ivan will have your toes curling and your thighs clenching. LOVE all of the sexual tension in this story, it had me on the edge of my seat! The connection between Ivan and Gabrielle is angsty, scorchingly sexy and at times comical – the perfect formula for a brilliant romance. And in true Raine Miller form, I am left dying to read book 2! Yes, she is the Queen of leaving her readers begging for more 🙂

Exclusive Excerpt

He takes a step back and pushes his sleeves up his sculpted arms.

My eyes wander up from his bare feet, over his worn jeans, his broad

shoulders and handsome face. He’s over six feet of masculine perfection and distracting in every way. A breeze from the ocean hits him, and he turns his face sideways. The sinking sun backlights his perfect silhouette.

This view of him engulfs me. I feel doused in flames and what I want at this very moment has nothing to do with writing. I’m burning for him. I desperately desire to be up on that deck wrapped around Max with the ocean breeze at my back. I don’t want to be his savior nor his biographer, I just want to consume him, and I hate myself…knowing that doesn’t make me any better than his art groupies.

“Okay, I’ll go to the bookstore!” I say, exasperated.

Max smiles happily and offers a wave as he backs away from the car.

He thinks he’s won, but this game hasn’t even begun.

ON THE RECORD by K.A. Linde~ Review

On the Record (Record, #2)On the Record by K.A. Linde

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh Brady!!!
K.A. Linde did it again. This series is going to be one of my favourite of all time. I can’t get enough of Brady Maxwell’s character. Not only is he sexy, he is driven, ambitious, and still has the capacity to fit love in there somewhere.
K.A. Linde has written an incredible group of characters in this series. I love every single one of them– even the villains. All of them are extremely tenacious and have their eye on the prize. their actions and motives are guided by personal success and the acquisition of all things that come with it and not merely out of spite.
I have yet to put my finger on it, but there is something inherently attractive and alluring about Brady Maxwell. And while he is physically sexy, it is his confidence dipped in enough vulnerability that you can’t help be drawn to him.
Linde also does a wonderful job in the pacing of her stories where there is never a dull moment even when a main event or scene is not happening. On The Record is definitely one that you will not want to put down and may cause a sleepless night.
This is a must read series and can’t wait to dive into book #3 For The Record coming this November.

AS THE DAWN BREAKS (Novella) by Erin Noelle~Review

As the Dawn Breaks (Dusk Til Dawn, #1.5)As the Dawn Breaks by Erin Noelle

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Yay we got Leo’s story!
This was a perfect novella to go along with When The Sun Goes Down. From his introduction in the first book, I loved his character. Leo is a gentle, protective soul. He loves with everything he has and loyalty is taken very seriously with him.
Being that it is a novella there are some things that have to be assumed and inferred. It’s hard not to want more about this character. There was one part to Leo’s story that I would have liked getting closure on as it was a big concern and played a part in where and why his character started out in the story.
I love that Noelle made he male m/c’s character wear his heart on his sleeve. He didn’t come across as too soft, rather he was thoughtful, attentive (in oh so many ways) and loving.
The story line with the female m/c was great and fit the characters perfectly. It’s also one that isn’t touched on very often and the female m/c is relatable and realistic.
Definitely read When The Sound Goes Down before reading this. You need the back story to fully understand where leo is coming from.
As The Dawn Breaks is a quick read that will melt your heart.
D 4/5

ENCHANTED AND DESIRED by Eva Simone~ Pre-Release Info

Jess Foster is your typical party
girl…or so it seems….

She’s got it all, money, looks, brains and sex appeal to rival any siren. Living in Manhattan with her best friend Lily, Jess enjoys the high life, toying with men and casting them aside, but behind the party girl façade is a broken, scared young woman who feels like she can’t confide in anyone. She hides it well until she spends the night with a sexy Italian player.

Simon Mantovani doesn’t do relationships.

He’s witnessed one woman he loves being broken beyond repair. He couldn’t protect her…and he will never let that happen again. He keeps his conquests to one night only, making sure to remove any emotional connection from the equation. That is until he’s introduced to a vixen who captures his attention. Convincing himself it’s a purely physical reaction, he embarks on a quest to get her out of his system…not so easy when you recognize the pain of a broken soul behind the most beautiful eyes you’ve ever seen.

Have Jess and Simon met their match in each other? Will they be able to forge something real together, or will their primal, undeniable attraction to each other be the very thing that rips them apart? Jess is a master of self-sabotage. Confronted with a decision that could change everything, will she put her trust in the man she so desperately wants?

A thrilling tale of caustic love between two people that swore never to go down this path. Jess and Simon will take you on a rollercoaster ride as they struggle to find their place in each other’s lives.

Sometimes love just isn’t enough…

Ignited – Most Wanted Book 3 by J. Kenner ~New Review~


Ignited (Most Wanted, #3)Ignited by J. Kenner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another SCORCHING HOT read from J.Kenner!

⭐️Ignited is book 3 in the Most Wanted series.⭐️

If you are looking for a sexy Alfa to fall all over, Cole August is your man. Although I found some if the storyline to sound familiar, this was a HOT read I couldn’t put down.

I have given Ignited a 5-star rating because it had me hooked from the get go. The electrifying sexual tension that J. Kenner creates is fabulous. The characters have a dark sexy feel to them and they kept this reader wanting more. I was however, disappointed when certain parts of the storyline closely reminded me of a few other book’s storylines. Normally this would have lost my attention completely but, there is no doubting the fact that Ms. Kenner knows how to write a book that keeps her readers engaged.

I love the dark feel to Cole’s character and seeing him evolve. Katarina’s mysterious past definitely had my attention. I have never read the Stark Trilogy so, after catching a glimpse of Damien Stark in Ignited, I will definitely be checking this series out very soon.

If you are looking for a H.O.T. read that will keep you on the edge of your seat, not just because it’s a scorching sexy romance but because of its intriguing mystery… You need to add Ignited to your TBR.  Nic
