Thirty Day Boyfriend by Whitney G.

35458123

Synopsis: 

I should’ve never agreed to this arrangement…

Thirty days ago, my boss—Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn’t refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. If I agreed, he would let me out of my employment contract with a “very generous” severance package.

The rules were pretty simple: No intimate kissing, no actual sex. Just pretend to love each other for the press, even though I’ve secretly wanted to knock that sexy smirk off his face since the first day we met.

I definitely didn’t need to think twice about this. I signed my name and started counting down the seconds to when I would never have to deal with his special brand of ass-holery again.

I only made it to one minute…

We argued the entire four-hour flight to his hometown, failed to make a convincing impression with the welcoming press, and right when I was about to knock that arrogant look off his face in real life? He purposely dropped his bath towel in front of me, distracting me with his nine-inch cock to “show me who the bigger person was” in our relationship. Then he gave me his trademark smirk once again and asked if I wanted to consummate our marriage.
Tragically, this is only day one.
We still have 29 more days to go…

YES. YES. YES! 



I’m not the biggest fan of short stories. I need more than just a few pages but Whitney G. is one of the authors who can write a shortie and also manage to fit so much passion and love in it.

Emily Johnson wants out of her contract with her boss. She’s been his right hand for two years and for long now, she’s been trying everything to get out of the solid contract. She’s been going to job interviews behind his back but Nicholas always manages to ruin them.

Nicholas Wolfe needs a fiancee for a month. Someone who can help him look like a family man so he can sign the multi-million contract. After interviewing several women for the position, and failing to find someone eligible, he offers the position to Emily. Who’s better than the woman who knows literally everything about him?

Thirty days ago, my boss—Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn’t refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. 


I loved their relationship. Nicholas could be a bit of a douche but Emily faced him with sass and attitude. They were sexy AF together and I wanted more when I finished.

The Fortunate Ones by R.S. Grey

36195139
Synopsis:
At Twin Oaks Country Club, there are the fortunate ones, and then there are the rest of us: the waiters, the caddies, the valets, and in my case, the cabana girls. Most days, I’m poolside in a pleated skirt, dishing out margaritas to tycoons and titans. It’s not exactly my dream job, but it does come with one perk…

James Ashwood.

He’s my silver lining in a custom black suit.

Besides being a legacy member at the club, he’s a tech mogul and Austin’s most eligible bachelor. Oh, and those dimples? Yeah, they make my stomach dip too.

On good days, I catch his sleek Porsche winding down the tree-lined drive. On better days, I steal a glimpse of his handsome profile as we pass in the hall. And on the absolute best day, I find him alone at the bar, looking for company.

“Come have a seat.”

Those four little words set me down a path I never could have imagined. Private planes, penthouse suites, and temptations around every corner make it impossible to keep my distance. His world feels decadent and wild—but overindulgence comes with a cost. Every kiss comes with strings. Every erotic encounter is a promise I’m not ready to keep.

When I pump the brakes, he hits the gas. James doesn’t want to go slow—he wants a commitment.

And the thing about the fortunate ones?

They’re used to getting what they want.

He’s my silver lining in a custom black suit.

R.S Grey has never disappointed. Ever. Once again, she has shown through this book that she’s the queen of RomComs! Every book she’s written, I’ve devoured. And this one was no different. It was funny, witty, sexy and just everything I love about R.S Grey’s books.


Brooke hates her job at Twin Oaks, working as a cabana girl. She hates all the snobby rich kids, the rich housewives and all the snobby, old men who hit on her every second they can. What she really wants to do is travel and work as an au pair while teaching French.
The only highlight about working at Twin Oaks is getting to see James Ashwood up close. The rich, famous businessman every woman, young as old, swoons over.


James Ashwood wants to settle down. And the sexy, smart and young cabana girl has caught his attention. But Brooke doesn’t want the same things as James. He wants a wife, someone he can come home to after a long day at the office. Brooke wants to teach and travel the world.

This book was sexy, funny and cute. I loved it! But, Brooke’s back and forth behaviour got on my nerves from time to time. I wished she had been more sure about James and their relationship and I wanted them to fight harder for each other. But, I still loved this story of Brooke and James.

Synopsis:

Someone once told me never leave the one you love for the one you like…
…you just might get something more out of that relationship than you bargained for.
I should have listened…
I never should have stepped foot on that airplane…
But I did.
Sins come in all shapes and sizes. My biggest sin to date comes in the form of sex, tattoos, and Harleys. Roman Blackhart, owner of Blackhart Custom Motorcycles, is all about living life in the fast lane. Our relationship went from zero to one hundred in the blink of an eye. Only problem is, I have a secret. A secret so deep it’s pulling me in two different directions.

Now we’re 1,400 miles of memories and broken hearts. I just hope it’s not too late to put all the pieces back together again.

Review:

1.5 Stars

This was one very confusing and boring read for me. I kind of got the feeling I wouldn’t like it from the third chapter. It’s not very often I dislike both the heroine and hero, but unfortunately that was the case here.

Leylah has been married to Ryan for nine years and their marriage is rocky. Ryan is frequently on business trips and the communication between them is lacking. So after Leila’s best friend, Erin, downloads a dating app on her phone, she receives a message from a man named Roman. That’s where their story starts. She’s a bit unsure at first, wether to keep replying to him or not. But as Ryan keeps drifting away, she finds comfort in Roman’s messages. After some time, messaging back and forth and talking on the phone, they decide to finally meet.

I did have some problems with the whole story.
1.Ryan wasn’t a bad guy. He was only prioritising his work more than his wife. And having her chat on him didn’t feel right to me.
2.Leylah and Roman together didn’t do it for me.
3.I got so confused towards the ending. It felt like Ryan was now the hero of the story and Roman was just a side character.

So all in all, I didn’t quite enjoy this book.
But as I always say, this is only my thoughts on the book.

Accidentally on Purpose (Heartbreaker Bay, #3) by Jill Shalvis

Synopsis:

There’s no such thing as a little in love…

Jill Shalvis had done it again! Archer Hunt was everything! This fucking book was everything. I loved every minute of it.

Elle Wheaton is a beautiful, young woman who loves her job, her friends and where she’s at. She’s the woman who’s always put together, had everyone following her orders with a snap of a finger.
But she wasn’t always like this. She came from a unbalanced home with a grifter mother. Elle and her sister, Morgan, wanted a better life, free of trouble. But Morgan had a hard time leaving trouble behind, and after coming clean to Elle that she had been involved in a jewelery heist, Elle says she’ll take care of it.

Anything for her and her sister to get out of there. But Morgan’s boyfriend, Lars, was anything but forgiving. Elle, being pinned to a wall, about to be beaten by her sister’s boyfriend, did not expect the police to barge in on a drug bust. She had a guardian angel. Archer Hunt. The rookie cop.

“Truthfully, she was the best thing in his life and he was a complete idiot if he let her walk away from him.”

Archer had been undercover when he first saw Elle and had risked his cover to get her out of the shitty place. Saving her had cost him everything. He had lost his job and his relationship with his cop father went down hill. Elle had been at the wrong place at the wrong time. He’d seen how weak, beaten, sad and fragile she’d been. Now years later, he owns Hunt Investigations, working in the same building as Elle, but they either ignore each other of argue like children.

Elle: I’m going to kiss you!
Archer: With tongue?
Elle: Kill you. I’m going to KILL you. Ducking autocorrect!

“Are you angry? Because we do some of our best naked work when you’re angry.”

I loved Archer the moment he appeared in the previous books. He was quiet, broody and all bad boy and I loved it. Elle was the complete opposite of him which made them so perfect for each other. I loved how even though Archer always protected and secretly cared for Elle. He was the real alpha man when it came to her and it was hot as hell. When these two got into bed together, I had to fan myself at the fire they created.

“I want in your life, Elle. All the way in.”

This is a must read and this one was the best one yet!

One Snowy Night (Heartbreaker Bay, #2.5) by Jill Shalvis

29505399.jpg

Synopsis:

(A standalone Heartbreaker Bay novella)

New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis returns to Heartbreaker Bay with a fun and festive holiday novella!

It’s Christmas Eve and Rory Andrews is desperate to get home to the family she hasn’t seen in years. Problem is, her only ride to Lake Tahoe comes in the form of the annoyingly handsome Max Stranton, and his big, goofy, lovable dog Carl.

Hours stuck in a truck with the dead sexy Max sounds like a fate worse than death (not), but Rory’s out of options. She’s had a crush on Max since high school and she knows he’s attracted to her, too. But they have history… and Max is the only one who knows why it went south.

They’ve done a good job of ignoring their chemistry so far, but a long road trip in a massive blizzard might be just what they need to face their past… and one steamy, snowy night is all it takes to bring Max and Rory together at last.

Review:

That’s it? I want more! I need more of Max and Rory!

I’m so glad Rory and Max got their own book, my only wish was for it to be longer. Jill Shalvis is making me fall more in love with her writing and her books.

“Max caught her expression as he slid in behind the wheel. “What?” he asked.
“What what?” she asked.
“You’re smiling.”
“Is there a law against that?”
He put his truck in gear and pulled out into the street. “No, but you don’t usually aim it at me.”

Rory Andrews has been through hell and back. She ran away when she was seventeen and ended up in San Fransisco. Before she met her friend and boss, Willa, she’d been in a relationship with an abusive and obsessive man. Now, working in the South Bark Mutt, and having friends that love her, she’s finally happy where she’s at. The only thing she regrets is not going home to her family. But now it’s time. She’s ready to face them. The only problem now is how she’s going to get home in the stormy weather on christmas.

“I don’t need a ride home.”
A flash of wry humor slid in with all that sizzling heat. “Because you’d rather take two buses and a train than get into my ”

Max Stranton is going home for christmas. And Willa has asked him to drive Rory home. The problem? They have a bad past. And now he has to spend hours in a car with her and his dog, Carl. The road trip home doesn’t go as smoothly as he’d hoped. With the storm getting worse and roadblocks on the highway, they are forced to spend christmas together on the road.

I fell in love with Rory in the previous book. She was funny and loving just as she was strong. I knew I would fall in love with Max and Carl when I started this book. They were hot and funny and I couldn’t get enough of them.
This was one real good christmas read and it is definitely a must read for those who wants to read a short, sexy, christmas love story.

Copy of kiss the single life goodbye!

Oranges have essential vitamin contents, antioxidants, protein, water percentage, and fiber. These are necessary minerals that help in keep the nutrients in your body balanced.-12

This was my first book by Jill Shalvis and I can say with all honesty, she’s now on my top ten of favourite authors. This was everything I was looking for. It was funny, cute, sexy and more!

Willa Davis is the owner of the South Bark Mutt. She spends most of her time there caring for animals. She loves all her client’s and their pets, just as much as she loves her group of friends. She’s kind and caring to everyone around her, but when Keane comes knocking, she’s anything but loving. In high school, Willa had asked Keane to the dance and was stood up by the popular jock and that had cut deep. And now here he was. Looking all kinds of sexy.

Keane Winters doesn’t remember Willa. So when he stalks to South Bark Mutt, begging to board his great-aunt’s cat for the day, he is met with Willa’s attitude, and he’s left confused. He doesn’t understand why Willa seems irritated by him. After more meetings with the feisty redhead who cares so much for her friends and animals, he wants more. And he’s pretty sure she wants more too. But Keane doesn’t get attached while Willa gets attached easily.

“He shook his head in surprise. “I don’t get attached.”
She looked at him. “Ever?”
“There’s no place for it in my world.”

Willa and Keane gets closer thanks to his aunt’s cat, Petunia. As their friendship deepens, conversations become more flirtatious and feelings develop. But Keane has attachment issues and Willa doesn’t want to get hurt by Keane again, which causes confusion about their feelings to one another. Will they fight through their issues? Or will they both let go of each other?

“Listen to me, Willa, because I want to make something perfectly clear here.” He opened his eyes and held hers prisoner. “You’re the most unforgettable person I’ve ever met.”

This is one of those stories that will stay with me. It consumed me entirely. When I was done with the book, I looked around and was disappointed it wasn’t snowing outside and there were no christmas lights begging for attention and I can’t wait to re-read this gem on christmas.

“Then he lowered his head and brushed her mouth with his. And then—to torture them both—again.
Moaning, she dropped the mistletoe and tugged her hand free to grip the front of his shirt with two fists. She was still holding tight when he lifted his head.
“It’s the damn mistletoe,” she whispered.
He let out a low laugh. “Babe, it’s not the mistletoe”

This is a must read. And now especially, before the movie comes out in December. So turn off the lights, light up some candles and get lost in this sweet, cozy love story.

[ARC] Hot Stuff by Kim Karr

34757163.jpg

Synopsis:

He’s the newly drafted quarterback.
Hot. Arrogant. Too sexy for words.
Ready to score.

I’m an athletic intern, and the coach’s daughter.
Driven. Determined. Prepared to conquer the world.
Completely off-limits.

The NFL is full of rules. Rules I’ve never broken. Never challenged. Never even scratched–until the day Lucas Carrington crashes into my life with his hard body and I-don’t-give-a-f*ck attitude.

After I almost injure my father’s star player, I volunteer to make sure he’s in top shape. At first, it’s hell. I don’t like his cockiness, his easy smile. Don’t like the way he oozes sex. Or how his penetrating eyes follow me everywhere.

That doesn’t stop me from wanting him.  He’s meant to be a distraction–something to occupy my mind for these precious few remaining hot summer nights before I’m forced to leave football behind forever.

I know what we’re doing will lead nowhere good. I know we’re crossing the line. And I know my father will never understand.

None of that matters.

But maybe it should.

Rules aren’t meant to be broken.

Or are they?

Review:

3 stars

She was pure temptation. The way she spoke. The way she moved. The way she laughed and made me laugh. What she did to me.

Lucas Carrington wants to play football and get the hell out of his hometown. Instead, he gets drafted to the Chicago Bears. His hometown team. Gillian Whitney, the coach’s daughter and an athletic intern for the Bears. She’s determined, strong headed, loves her job. Her meeting with the new team player does not go as expected. She accidentally injures Lucas and offers to help him.

Rules are broken. They’re forbidden lovers. Star player and the coach’s daughter.

❝ So are you in or out? ❞
Okay that sounded really dirty.
With the sexiest raised brow I’d ever seen, he said, ❝ In. I’m always in. ❞

I did not enjoy this one as much as I had hoped. It was a light, sport romance but, unfortunately, it didn’t do it for me. I was hoping for more jerk attitude from Lucas and I wanted Gillian to resist him in the beginning. It went to fast for my liking. But if you like a light, funny sport romance, where there’s an instant spark between the hero and heroine, this one may be for you.
