Battle of the Bulge
Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes BATTLE OF THE BULGE, Book Four of the OHellNO Series. (A Standalone.)
“Chicks can’t be bodyguards. Especially hot chicks.”
MY NAME IS MITCH HOFER. I’m a world-famous swimmer from Australia, best known for three things: my gold medals, my looks, and filling out a swimsuit with my…eh-hem—bulky equipment. Let’s just say there’s a reason my nickname is “the Bulge.”
But beyond the fame, sponsors, and glory, there’s more to me than people know, including one hell of a mess I’ve gotten mixed up in. Life-or-death stuff, so bring in the professionals. Just don’t give me a chick bodyguard. Especially a young hot one who distracts me at every turn and hates my guts…
MY NAME IS ABI CARTER, and I hate Mitch Hofer. Yeah, he might be the sexiest champion swimmer in the world, but I’d give this guy a gold medal for being a first-class jerk.
Unfortunately, my boss has given me a choice—guard Mitch or get another job. And I really need the money. I can be professional, but if Mitch says “chicks can’t be bodyguards” one more time, I just might strangle him myself.
Still, something about the way Mitch keeps looking at me makes me think there’s more to his story. It’s almost as if he’s trying to drive me away. But why?
I’ve read this entire series and it just gets better with each book. But what really sets this one apart is that even though the “bulge” is talked about all throughout the book, this is a sweet romance that relies on the characters and their dialogue instead of the smexy times. Sure the smexy times are more at the end of the book and its hawt, but we really get to know Abi and Mitch. Plus, come on, no one writes a rom-com like Ms. Pamfiloff. I couldn’t help but giggle throughout most of the book. The “enemies to lovers” trope is perfection when Ms. Pamfiloff’s writes it. Sure, sure, I’ve read other books using the same trope but Ms. Pamfiloff is the queen in my opinion.
So why did I like the book? Easy, I just pictured Ian Thorpe as Mitch. And yes, I do watch the Olympics, especially swimming. *sigh* I remember the battle between the Aussies and Americans. Gary Hall, Ian Thorpe, Janet Evans, etc. Most fun I’ve ever had watching the Olympics. But I digress…okay, so it’s the characters, Abi and Mitch. Abi and Mitch are very well thought out and well-written characters. You get to know them, their thoughts, reactions but more importantly how they relate to each other. You can also relate to them as real people. Abi with her issues and Mitch with the ongoing threat to him and why. It was interesting getting into Mitch’s head when it came to swimming and why it was so important to him.
Abi is just pure fun and joy. I loved that Georgie and Sam played a big part in this book. You need to read book #3 for them. Oh man, I missed them and it was great to see Tass and Elle from the first two books, too. I forgot how much fun Elle and Tass really are the geekiness is still strong with those two. LOL! Plus, getting the real story about Georgie and Abi and the deep love that they really have for each other. And I can’t forget Sam. The banter between Abi and Sam is classic but you can see the real respect that they have for each other.
I’m not going to spoil how the book plays out but I highly recommend that if you are looking for a fantastic enemies to lovers story, look no further than this book. In fact the whole series. The books can be read out of order so don’t worry about that. I can’t wait to see the next book in the series. Leland, hopefully, will continue the story about the photos and how he ties into Mitch.

SHE’S GOT ME BY THE FOOTBALLS…
My name is Henry Walton, and though I’ve been called many things throughout my life—tree trunk, moose, walrus—I am now six foot five, solid muscle, and the hottest defensive end in the NFL college draft. This is the moment I’ve been waiting for: fame, women, and glory.
Just one problem: I’m suddenly in a bad slump. And it started the moment I got dumped by Elle, the nerdy goddess with thick glasses, a smokin’ hot body, and a genius IQ.
So what gives? We only dated for a few weeks, and it’s not like I’ve missed her. (Much.) Regardless, all the facts point to one conclusion. Elle is my lucky nerd-charm.
So call me superstitious, but I have to get her back before I lose everything. Even if she’s the last girl I should want and she now hates my guts.

Digging A Hole (Book #3)
From New York Times Bestseller, Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, comes a new Romantic Comedy.
He’s the meanest boss ever.
She’s the sweet shy intern.
They’re about to wreck each other crazy.
My name is Sydney Lucas. I am smart, deathly shy, and one hundred percent determined to make my own way in the world. Which is why I jumped at the chance to intern for Mr. Nick Brooks despite his reputation. After ten failed interviews at other companies, he was the only one offering. Plus, everyone says he knows his stuff, and surely a man as stunningly handsome as him can’t be “the devil incarnate,” right? Wrong.
Oh…that man. That freakin’ man has got to go! I’ve been on the job one week, and he’s insulted my mother, wardrobe shamed me, and managed to make me cry. Twice. Underneath that stone-cold, beautiful face is the evilest human being ever.
But I’m not going to quit. Oh no. For once in my life, I’ve got to make a stand. Only, every time I open my mouth, I can’t quite seem to muster the courage. Perhaps my revenge needs to come in another form: destroying him quietly.
Because I’ve got a secret. I’m not really just an intern, and Sydney Lucas isn’t my real name.
