Happy Release Week to Hot & Heavy (a Chubby Girl Chronicles book #2) by Tabatha Vargo! @TabathaVargo @tabathavargo21

 

FINALLY! BOOK TWO OF THE CHUBBY GIRL CHRONICLES IS HERE!
Sometimes a little heat is all it takes to lighten a heavy heart.

Shannon Daniels is afraid of men, but when Matthew Ellis literally falls into her lap, fear is the last thing she feels. For the first time in years, she desires a man, and she plans on taking advantage of her new craving. Shannon hatches a plan to satisfy her sudden hunger, but dancing with the devil will get you more than a one-way trip to hell, and Shannon finds out quickly that even the best-laid plans go awry. 

Matthew Ellis swears he will never get caught in the tangled web of a woman. After a devastating heartbreak, he’s determined to die a bachelor. When he meets Shannon, a chubby redhead with a firecracker personality, he decides to add her to his list of conquests. The good news is she’s okay with a hot and heavy fling. The bad news is, for the first time since he was a teenager, being caught doesn’t seem that unappealing.

“Most men don’t like overweight women, Matthew.”

He snorted. “You’re not overweight. You’re fucking perfect.”
“I’m not. We both know I’m not, but thank you for saying it.”
“No,” he said, capturing my face in his hands and forcing me to look him in the eye. “Listen to me. I don’t give a fuck what anyone says; you’re perfect.”
He kissed the tip of my nose.
“Beautiful inside and out.”
He kissed my right cheek.
“Sexy as hell.”
He kissed my left cheek.
“And I’m so honored that you’re here with me right now because I’m no fool; I know you’re too good for me. What I’m doing with you is wrong, and I know that. You deserve so much better than me, but I can’t stay away from you.”
I kissed him, tasting all that he was. “Then don’t,” I whispered again his lips.
He kissed me hard, pulling a soft moan from the back of my throat. My body pressed into his, begging for him. Ready. So completely ready.
“You’re driving me crazy, Red.”
“No. You’re driving me crazy.”
He backed away, pulling me to a standing position. He reached for the hem of my dress and began lifting it.
“I know you hate them, but I only have one question.” His hand slid up the inside of my thigh before he dipped a finger in the top of my panty line and ran it across my lower stomach. “Will you let me lick all your curves?”
Biting my lip, I nodded.
He tugged my dress over my head, leaving me in nothing but my bra and panties. His eyes devoured my body as he smacked my hands away when I tried to cover myself. Slowly, he peeled my bra straps down and began undoing the back of my bra.
He leaned over, latching onto my nipple, and a wild moan escaped my lips. I had never felt anything so potent. Every time he sucked on my nipple, a tugging sensation pulled at my clit as if he was sucking there, as well.
While he worked my breasts, his fingers slipped into my panties, pushing them down my ass and over my thighs until they were loose enough to drop to my ankles. He tickled my hip, his fingers walking their way over my flesh until he was teasing my clit with the tip of his finger.
“Oh, my God. Matthew,” I breathed his name.
He captured my cheeks in his other hand, pinching slightly to get me to look him in the eye.
“I’m going to stick my fingers in first. I want to touch you inside.” He breathed. “This is your warning. Don’t freak out on me, okay?”
I nodded, ready to feel some form of penetration. My inner walls were clenching, pushing my juices out with the want to be filled.
His fingers moved down from my clit, sliding over my soaked folds until his middle finger was circling my opening. I thrust, not being able to wait any longer, and he chuckled, the deep vibrations of his laughter sending a wave of longing through me.
“Slow down, baby, I’m going to ease that ache soon enough.”
I melted. The way he was talking to me and touching me was driving me toward an orgasm.
His fingers swiped around my center once again, and I whined, needing to feel him before I burst. I was seconds away from begging when he pressed two fingers into me, bending his fingers deep.
I sighed in relief.
My knees went weak, and I leaned onto the countertop, hoping it would keep me from falling.
“Is this okay?” he asked, his blazing blue eyes lingering on my face.
“Yes. Please, Matthew,” I begged, needing more of everything he was giving me.
He pulled his fingers out a bit, my body naturally trying to suck them back in. Then he thrust once more, pulling them out and pushing them back in, in a rhythm that had my toes curling into the wood flooring beneath my feet. His thumb glided over my clit sending a jolt of sensation through me until I began to shiver.
“I love seeing you like this,” he breathed. “Look at you. You like having my fingers inside you, don’t you, Red?”
I nodded, wishing I could speak over the heavy breaths that pushed from my body.
“Say it, Shannon. Tell me you like it.”
He fucked me with his fingers faster, pushing me toward the brink and holding me over the edge.
“I-I-I do,” I stuttered. “I like it so much.”

Happy Release Week & #Review of Miss Fix-It by Emma Hart! @EmmaHartAuthor @inkslingerpr

 

 

One handywoman.

One single dad.

One set of twins.

And the wall isn’t the only thing being drilled…

I learned the hard way that being a handywoman isn’t easy. The questions, the stares—the assumption I’m the proud owner of a cock and balls. Not that it matters. I’ve proven over and over that I’m ready for anything the judgmental asses throw at me.

Except the hot, single dad of twins who just moved to town.

Brantley Cooper gets the shock of his life when I show up on his doorstep to fix up his kids’ new rooms. His son is confused why ‘the pretty lady has a drill,’ and his daughter has a new obsession—me.

On paper, my job is easy. Go in, do their bedrooms, and leave.

In theory, I’m spending eight hours a day with a guarded, sexy as hell guy, and I’m staying for dinner more often than I’m eating it alone, on my couch, with Friends re-runs.

I shouldn’t be staying for dinner. I shouldn’t be helping him out with the twins. I shouldn’t be falling in love with tiny toes and dimpled cheeks.

And I most definitely should not be kissing my client.

Oops…

“Deal with it,” I echoed, my mouth dry. “What exactly do you mean by that?”
He glanced at my mouth.
“Okay, but, um, here’s the thing.” I couldn’t breathe. I sounded like a panting idiot trying to get the words out between each short, sharp breath I took. “This,” I motioned between us, “is bad.”
“Bad.” His lips tugged to the side.
“Yes. Because,”—help. Someone help—“because this isn’t allowed. Company rules. No cavorting with clients.”
“No cavorting with clients.” That half-smile turned into a full-blown grin. “That’s very…proper.”
“Well, I can’t exactly put, “No sleeping with the clients” now, can I?”
“You could have, but it would have been unfortunately precise.”
“I should change that.”
“I disagree.”
I licked my lips. “You should agree. Because this is—”
“Bad. You said.” More lip twitching.
“I thought you were sorry you made it awkward by kissing me.”
“That was before I found out you were attracted to me. Now, I’m a lot less sorry I kissed you.”
Oh. Well. Fair enough.
“Should I take back my acceptance of your apology?” I asked.
“You should stop talking and see how you feel when I’ve kissed you again.”

 

This book had me laughing so hard in parts.  Yes, laughing.  Like out loud.  The snark, the kids, the hot dad that didn’t have a clue and especially Kali, our heroine.  She absolutely has no filter as does her stepmom.  Those two had me in stitches most of the time when they were together.  But let me back up and tell you I liked about the books.

  1.  Kali – She is strong, sexy without even knowing it, good at what she does and is set in her ways about no children.  I know, right?  Hey, I have friends that never wanted children and it works for them.  Heck, I even have a BIL & SIL that never wanted them.  I admire anyone that has that conviction.  Me, I love kids.
  2. Eli & Ellie – I swear their antics were hilarious.  I have twin aunts so I got the whole twin thing.  Plus, the dialogue that Ms. Hart wrote with them…Priceless.  I will say that Eli was my favorite.  He just captured my heart from the beginning and how Kali was able to communicate with him is wonderful.  Ellie is all over the place and a couple of times I thought she needed a good spanking but that’s just me.  Ms. Hart writes them not just as a plot element but as real characters.  To me, that is brilliant writing.
  3. Brantley – He isn’t the clueless father that some authors will use to make the heroine fall in love with him.  He is still grieving over the loss of the children’s mother but it’s not sad.  He thinks about what the “ifs” but also looks to the future…with Kali.  His feelings are real, relatable and let’s face it.  He’s hot.  I got the sense that he was hesitant in the beginning with Kali but once he faced his feelings for her, it was on.
  4. The plot – Its a basic simple plot but the layers that Ms. Hart wrote in it are beautiful.  Single dad, adorable kids and a reluctant heroine?  Been done but Ms. Hart gives us the emotions of will Kali be good enough with the children?  No, she won’t take the place of their mother but she has doubts.  The scenes with her stepmother are cry-worthy.  Her step mother tells Kali about her own feelings when she came into the picture and it really helps Kali in her thought process and how she sees herself with Brantley and the children.
  5. Dialogue – Snarky, emotional and laugh out loud funny.  This book is just hilarious when dealing with subject matter that is also heart-tugging.  Ms. Hart does a wonderful job of balancing the two.

I have to admit that this is my first book by Ms. Hart.  I know, sometimes I live under a rock but it won’t be my last.  I loved her pacing, dialogue, and her characters.  It’s a book that I think everyone should read.

This is a hard review to write.  I liked the book.  Loved Tony to bits but I was a bit let down by Amy.  Don’t get me wrong, I liked her but how she wouldn’t talk to Tony at the beginning of the book really got on my nerves.  I mean, they had a history and she didn’t even want to acknowledge what had happened.  I felt for Tony at this point and I really didn’t see how Ms. Cole was going to get these two on the same page.

Tony has the patience of a saint.  I wouldn’t have put up with Amy reluctance to talk about their time from the special summer.  And how she NEVER told him about what had really happened.  My heart broke for Tony and I had a bit of disgust for Amy.  And to think when he showed up at her dorm room.  UGH!!!  Again, Amy’s actions compared to her inner thoughts just irked me in the beginning of the book.  Once, she FINALLY decided to really talk to Tony, I had more respect for her and the rest of the book.’

The girls in the books are spot on.  Bella has got to be my favorite.  No filter Bella.  I really need to read her book.  Just for snark.  And Leanna’s, too.  Heck all of them.  I read them years ago when they were hotter but it has been a while.  In fact, that’s the one thing that I really think would have made Tony and Amy’s book more emotional for me in the end.  It had all the feels but I would have liked a bit more of the sexiness in their coupling.  What finally sold me on Amy and Tony was the end when Amy realized that her feelings for Tony were totally genuine and that she finally decided to tell the girls about that summer a long time ago.

This book is emotional, fun and satisfying.  Just because the beginning got on my nerves I really did like it and recommend it.  I just need to read Bella’s book.  I loved that girl.  No filter.  HA HA!  I also like how all the guys were there for Tony, too.  This group is just too much for me but in a good way.

I can’t wait for Skye’s book to come out in December.  Talk about someone without a filter.  Read the chapter insert at the end of this book.  🙂
