[ARC] The Beau And The Belle by R.S Grey

36992205.jpg

Synopsis:

Beau Fortier starred in most of my cringe-worthy teenage fantasies.

I met him when I was a junior in high school, a time that revolved exclusively around bad hair, failed forays into flirting, and scientific inquiries into which brand of toilet paper worked best for stuffing bras.

That is, until Beau moved into the small guest house just beyond my bedroom window.

A 24-year-old law student at Tulane, Beau was as mysterious to me as second base (both in baseball and in the bedroom). He was older. Intimidating. Hot. Boys my age had chicken legs and chubby cheeks. Beau had calloused hands and a jaw cut from steel. Our interactions were scarce—mostly involving slight stalking on my end—and yet deep down, I desperately hoped he saw me as more of a potential lover than a lovesick loser.

Turns out, I was fooling myself. My fragile ego learned that lesson the hard way.

Now, ten years later, we’re both back in New Orleans, and guess who suddenly can’t take his eyes off little ol’ me.

My old friend, Mr. Fortier.

But things have changed. I’m older now—poised and confident. My ego wears a bulletproof vest. The butterflies that once filled my stomach have all perished.

When I was a teenager, Beau warned me to guard my heart.

Let’s hope he knows how to guard his.

The QUEEN of RomComs is BACK!

This book is divided into two parts.
Part one – the past
Part two- the present

Beau Fortier, a twenty-four year old Tulane student, is looking for a place to live while he attends law school. And he just so happens to find a guest house to rent that belongs to the LeBlanc’s. All Beau is focusing on is to graduate Law school, become a successful and powerful lawyer and to rebuild the Fortier name.

Lauren LeBlanc, the wild-curly haired, high school student, first met Beau when he moved into the guest house on her parents property. There were instant sparks the first time they met but nothing could happen because of the age gap. They both know that. But that doesn’t stop their feelings to develop for each other. But after hurricane Andrea causes them to separate, they don’t meet again until much later.

Ten years later, Lauren is back home to open her gallery&coffee shop. She more beautiful, successful and determined to stay away from Beau despite the feelings she still has for him. But Beau isn’t having it. He couldn’t have her when they first met, but now he’ll stop at nothing to get her. I loved Beau in the first part of the book, but god did I love the successful, alpha lawyer Beau that we got to read in the second part.

R.S Grey has been one of my favourite authors since Scoring Wilder. She writes Romance Comedy like no one else. There was absolutely nothing I didn’t like in this book. R.S Grey has never let me down with the characters and stories she creates and I can with full confidence say this is one of the best books by her.

[ARC] Bad For You by J. Daniels

35108650-2

Synopsis:

Shayla Perkins isn’t the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean “Stitch” Molina. So when he gives her the world’s biggest rejection, that’s it—she’s done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn’t mean he’s interested in her. Or does it?

Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he’s paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected—especially from a man like Sean. He’s tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.

Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give one another want they want most . . . is to let each other go?

kiss the single life goodbye!

Oh my god. Sean, my love, you broke my heart!

“I’m so fuckin’ sick of being’ nothin’, Shayla.”
“You’re not nothing.” I said, pulling him into a hug.


Get ready for this slow burn.
And to get your heart broken. Completely.

Sean “Stitch” Molina is a broken man. A broody, angry and alone man. He’s been through a hell of a childhood. With a mom who never showed him any love or kindness. He grew up hungry and cold, having to steal food and clothes to take care of himself. Now, he’s the head chef at ‘Whitecaps’ and trying to be the best he can be.

Shayla Perkins, the happy, talky waitress, at ‘Whitecaps’ is the only person that can get to Sean. But after he stands her up, she keeps her distance from him. She tries to keep her focus on work and on her dreams, to open her own salon. But when her Nana dies, and her parents have to leave, she offers to take care of her brothers. But taking care of her brothers while juggling her own life, turns out to be harder than she thought. But then the person she least expected comes to her rescue. Broody Sean.

Sean doesn’t feel worthy. He believes he doesn’t deserve kindness and love. But Shay forces love and kindness on him. She makes it her mission in life to make him feel loved and worthy. She helps him through his nightmares and demons and shows him a place of light.

“Don’t quit talking’ to me,” he begged.
“I won’t. Ever.”
“I want you filling’ my head. I want it so fuckin’ bad.”
God his pain—it became my own—I felt it.

This story really got to me. I knew from the previous books that Sean would be the man to really break my heart. But he was also the one who I really fell in love with. This story will forever be with me. I loved Shayla and Sean’s story. I loved how she was the strong one and made sure Sean knew that she would always be there for him to lean on. I loved that she thought Sean to love and see good in the world. And I absolutely loved their Happy ever after. Shay is everything Sean deserves.

“He didn’t feel worthy. And he was absolutely worthy. Not just of me, but of everything good this world had to offer him. Of love. Of kindness. And I was going to make sure he knew that for good.”

 

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.

Review:
Copy of kiss the single life goodbye!

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.

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

30166217.jpg

Synopsis:

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

Elle Wheaten’s priorities: friends, career, and kick-ass shoes. Then there’s the muscular wall of stubbornness that’s security expert Archer Hunt—who comes before everything else.

love you.png
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:

Copy of kiss the single life goodbye!

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.

Review:

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.
