The Billionaire in Her Bed
by Regina Kyle

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Real estate mogul Eli Ward needs to keep a low profile on his new project. He’s expecting a fight from the somewhat eclectic folks currently living there. What he doesn’t expect is for that fight to be led by Brooke Worthington, the woman who rocked his world one unforgettable night. The one woman who doesn’t know who he is, which is a good thing. She just sees him as a regular guy. It’s refreshing.

Graphic designer and part-time bartender Brooke Worthington refuses to follow her family’s plan for her. She’s too busy building her artistic career. She doesn’t have time for relationships, either, especially with the super hot Eli, because she has to save the building she lives in with people she thinks of as her real family from some greedy real estate billionaire.

These two have secrets and chemistry that is nothing short of explosive.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt Three:

“One night.” She stared at a spot over his shoulder, desperate for something to distract her from the overwhelming scent of him, soap and sandalwood and sweat. No dice.

“It was supposed to be one night.”

“Do you believe in fate?”

His warm breath danced across her cheek and tickled her ear.

“Because it seems to be telling us otherwise.”

No, she didn’t. She believed in hard work and perseverance. Why else would she still be banging her head against the wall trying to get a top-drawer publisher interested in her novel?
She went for sarcastic, hoping it would scare him off.

“Maybe it’s telling me you’re a stalker.”

“Who doesn’t know your last name yet somehow found out where you live and rented an apartment in your building?”

She gave a half-hearted shrug. “Could happen.”

“Or it could be when I met you that night at Flotsam and Jetsam I was apartment hunting, and I was as surprised to see you at the tenants’ meeting as you were to see me. Call it a happy coincidence.”

“I don’t believe in coincidence, either.”

“What do you believe in?” His baby blues, mysterious and mesmerizing, bored into hers.

“Luck?”

She broke free from his spellbinding gaze, dragging her eyes down to his awe-inspiring chest and focusing on the fire-engine red “ALL” in the center of his Metallica T-shirt.

“Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.”

“Then it looks like this is my lucky day.”

“Why is that?”

“Because this is my opportunity to convince you the universe wants us to spend some time together.” He slid a finger under her chin and lifted her face to his. “And I’m prepared to stay right here until you agree.”

 

What can I say?  It’s another Indulgence which is my crack of choice in reading.  I won’t bore you with my love for the line or the tropes that are associated with it.  But I will have to say that this is one of the better Indulgence books that I’ve read in a while.  Why do I say this?  Because this book deals with two people that not only have secrets about themselves but also the impact of real estate developers buying properties and then displacing the current residents.  Ms. Kyle doesn’t preach about it but the way that she tells the show is how much I loved this book.

Ms. Kyle not only incorporates how Eli comes to live at the building where Brooke lives but how the residents at the building slowly become his friends.  Doesn’t hurt that Eli and Brooke get to spend a lot of time together getting to know each other and have unlimited smexy times but Ms. Kyle has some of the best secondary characters that I’ve read in some time.  Between David & Chris, Charise and the baby and the Feingolds, you get the sense of community right from the start and I fell in love with all of them.

The chemistry between Eli and Brooke is off the charts but what I really liked about them is their ability to actually get to know each other.  Of course, these two have massive secrets but it’s NOT what you think.  In fact, I think that their secrets are somewhat anti-climatic.  Sure, sure the secrets are revealed near the end of the book but Eli and Brooke had already made that connection and fell in love.  I loved both Eli and Brooke from the start.  No major skeletons in the closet just two people that didn’t expect to find each other and fall in love.

I just loved this book and Ms. Kyle’s style of writing.  She writes tightly and to the point.  There are no unnecessary fillers in her story.  I liked Eli and Brooke’s sister…a lot.  I feel like Brooke’s sister needs her own story.  I loved her and how she really is there for Brooke, regardless of their parents.

Overall, this is one the best Indulgence books that I’ve read.  It’s tight, sexy, relevant and the characters are fantastic.  I looked forward to reading more from Ms. Kyle.

Happy Book Birthday & ARC #Review of Oh Henry (OHellNo Series #2) by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff w/a rafflecopter giveaway! #romantic comedy @MimiJeanRomance

Oh Henry

OHellNo Series, Book #2

by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

From New York Times Bestseller, Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, Comes OH, HENRY, Book Two of the Ohellno Series. (Stand Alone Story.)

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.

I realize that I’m late with this review.  I usually schedule my stuff but I didn’t with this one.  I read it, put it down and then Hurricane Harvey hit.  My husband’s family is directly affected by it and we’ve been under a lot of stress, worrying and it’s made me physically sick.  I apologize to Mimi Jean and to everyone else.

THIS.BOOK.  Oh, my word.  If I wasn’t laughing, I was swooning and then I wanted to slap both of them upside their heads with their absolute stupidity at times.  I read Smart Tass before I read this and you could it for somewhat of an understanding in Elle and Henry’s relationship but it can be a stand alone.  But hey, it’s Mimi Jean so you NEED to read their book, too.  Mimi Jean just gets college aged people.  She doesn’t throw a bunch of unnecessary angst in their stories but she does manage to throw some twists in their stories that are very realistic and relatable.

Henry and Elle both have very serious family situations going on in their lives.  Elle’s is rather sad and Henry’s is just UGH!  I won’t go into either one of them right now but they do intersect and the sacrifices that one of them makes made me sad and mad at the same time.  I will go ahead and tell you that Elle and Henry’s story isn’t finished.  The cliffy/teaser at the end is a doozy and I have to wait until next year (I think) to see what happens.  I’m not a happy person but that’s Mimi Jean for you and I love her all the same.

You will love how Henry and Elle relate to each other regardless of the so-called “class” of what defines on campus.  She’s brilliant and he’s the jock bound for the NFL.  The truths about sororities and frats is so true.  I never pledged just because of it.  Ugh but Mimi Jean nailed it.  Everything she wrote in this book and Smart Tass is dead on and at times cringe worthy.  And then you have the laugh out loud moments, too.  Plus, smexy times.  Oh yes, this book is a lot more sexy than Smart Tass and I won’t tell you the reason either.  You just need to read this book.  Trust me on this.

Overall, I bow to Mimi Jean’s brilliance.  She gets it and owns it.  You will fall in love with Henry and want a Oh Henry afterwards.

You’re stupid if you don’t read it. Just saying…

Happy Book Birthday & ARC #Review of Enforce (The Force Duet #2) by M. Malone and Nana Malone! @givemebooksblog @minxmalone @nanamalone

 

 

Title: Enforce
Series: The Force Duet #2
Authors: M. Malone & Nana Malone
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 29, 2017
Blurb
I am the shadow that haunts the night. I am a hunter, a protector…a force for good…I am Jonas Castillo.
And now that she’s mine, I’m never letting her go.
If only she would let me protect her…Seeing the fear in her eyes, makes me want to do the one thing I’ve vowed never to do again… kill.
But I’ll do anything to protect what’s mine.
The finale of The Force Duet. Must be read AFTER the first book, Force. 
 Jesus H. Christ!  Seriously, Malone Squared!  How do you top Lucia and Noah’s trilogy?  With this gem of a duet!  I’m still riding high from all the adrenaline that I’ve got running through me right now.  Folks, I’m not sure where to start with this review.  I will say this if you have not read the trilogy featuring Noah and Lucia, you are truly missing out.  This duet is a continuation of the whole team at Blake Security but focuses on Jonas and JJ.  I read part 1 and damn…the cliffhanger.  But now worries.  I read this one soon after.
Jonas is trying to keep JJ safe after the team realizes that JJ’s old boyfriend is back and more obsessed with her than before.  I won’t go into details but it has a lot to do with Rafe, Lucia’s brother, and some twisted thoughts that David (JJ’s ex) has about Rafe and JJ.  Yep, it’s twisted but I love how Malone Squared was able to come up with a plot that is so believable, you are basically shaking your head and hanging on for dear life.
Everyone is back and the family atmosphere is even tighter than before.  Oskar still cracks me up, Matthias still scares me and Dylan & Ryan are still a hoot.  Not as fleshed out yet but I can’t wait for them to really start talking.  Lucia and Noah are still there, too.  Noah STILL hasn’t figured out that Lucia is going to do what she wants and when she wants.  Chapter 18 is Lucia’s time to shine with JJ and I couldn’t help holding my breath and then laughing my rear end off.  The action is non-stop in this book, too.  I mean, non-stop.  There are still some smexy times but I felt like it took a backseat to the emotional upheaval and the need to catch David from the team.  I’m not complaining, though.  I loved everything about this book.
Reading Chapter 19 will give you a glimpse at Matthias and I’ve been dying to get his story.  Hopefully, Malone Squared is working on that because of all the characters that I have met, he seems to be the one with the most layers and I can’t wait to see them peeled.
Again, folks, you are missing out on a great series and the world that Malone Squared has created.  Do yourself a favor and read them.
You are welcome!

Excerpt
Before Jonas could answer, they rounded the corner into the kitchen and stopped in their tracks. Ryan stood in the kitchen pouring a cup of coffee, but everyone else was sitting around the long oak table in the dining area. Including Rafe.
“Good morning!” Lucia called. “I saved you some pancakes and bacon.”
JJ smiled gratefully at her friend, but Jonas could already see the pink inching up her cheeks. She rarely blushed, and most of the times he’d seen her do it had been over the last few days.  Because of Rafe. She blushed for that bastard.
 “Thank you.  We’re both starving.” Jonas turned to Lucia, determined to ignore the other side of the room. Until he heard a round of masculine laughter and his eyes
were pulled over again.
Rafe smirked.
“I bet. Yo, we get it.  She’s yours and you’re the only one who can make her scream your name. But I don’t think they heard her in New Jersey.”
JJ blushed bright red and dropped the plate of food she was holding on the counter with a clatter. “I’m not hungry.”
“Rafe!”
Lucia yelled.
Rafe looked slightly chagrined. “Come on blondie, I was just joking,” he yelled after JJ’s retreating form. A few seconds later, a door in the hallway closed firmly. Jonas was
across the room before he had a chance to think, and only Oskar stepping in his way stopped his momentum.
“Fuck you, man. What are you even doing here?”
“I work here, remember? And my sister lives here.” Rafe drawled lazily, as if the entire situation amused him.
That only infuriated Jonas more. The bastard acted like everything was a joke. Especially considering how long he’d been gone from his sister’s life. He thought he could
flit in and out of his family’s life with no consequences? Jonas didn’t even know the whole story, but he was furious about Rafe’s actions on Lucia’s behalf. She’d mourned her brother for years.
“Your sister living here didn’t seem to influence your decisions at any other time in your life,” he pointed out.
Like a black cloud had just passed, the temperature in the room dropped a few degrees. 
Rafe stood slowly. “You don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about.”
“Why don’t you come over here and tell me then,” Jonas sneered.
Rafe laughed. “I think we all remember what happened the last time we fought. Can you see me now?”
Jonas growled and tried to push past Oskar. His eyes had fully recovered from whatever Rafe had thrown at him last year, but just the memory of that shit hurt. Months of built-up frustration were about to be released all at once. They’d accepted Rafe because Noah asked them to, but there was only so much a man could take. Even if he died in the attempt, it might be worth it to wipe the smug smile off that asshole’s face temporarily.
“Okay, settle down children. The real enemy is out there.”
Noah appeared from somewhere, and a huge hand landed on Jonas’s chest, keeping him immobile. He leaned closer to whisper in Jonas’s ear. “Take a break. Calm down. I’ve got this.”
Jonas clenched his teeth before turning and stalking down the hall. He trusted Noah a hell of a lot. They’d walked through fire together, literally, and there was no one else he’d rather have covering his back. But Noah had sure as hell better handle it. Because if he didn’t, Jonas would.
