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.

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.

There is such a thing as…

As far as Archer’s concerned, nobody is good enough for Elle. But when he sets out to prove it by sabotaging her dates, she gets mad—and things get hot as hell. Now Archer has a new mission: prove to Elle that her perfect man has been here all along…

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.

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.

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.

They call him The Mute for a reason.

Idol (VIP #1) by Kristen Callihan

Libby

I found Killian drunk and sprawled out on my lawn like some lost prince. With the face of a god and the arrogance to match, the pest won’t leave. Sexy, charming, and just a little bit dirty, he’s slowly wearing me down, making me crave more.

He could be mine if I dare to claim him. Problem is, the world thinks he’s theirs. How do you keep an idol when everyone is intent on taking him away?

Killian

As lead singer for the biggest rock band in the world, I lived a life of dreams. It all fell apart with one fateful decision. Now everything is in shambles.

Until Liberty. She’s grouchy, a recluse—and kind of cute. Scratch that. When I get my hands on her, she is scorching hot and more addictive than all the fans who’ve screamed my name.

The world is clamoring for me to get back on stage, but I’m not willing to leave her. I’ve got to find a way to coax the hermit from her shell and keep her with me. Because, with Libby, everything has changed. Everything.

 

The Opposite of You (Opposites Attract #1) by Rachel Higginson 

I’ve sworn off men.

All men.

Famous last words, right? You’re expecting some epic tale of reluctant love and my dramatic change of heart? Well, you’re not going to get it.

I’m stubborn. And headstrong. And I’ve just survived the worst three years of my life. After escaping an abusive boyfriend to live in hostels and cheap hotels while I worked my way across Europe, I’ve come to two conclusions.

The first? Now that I’m back home, I’m going to squander my expensive culinary degree on a food truck that caters to the late night drunk crowd.

The second? I’m going to prove to the bastard across the plaza that my street food is better than his fussy five course monstrosities.

Killian Quinn might be Food and Wine’s Chef to Watch Out For. He might have a Michelin Star. He might have every food critic in the city wrapped around his too-large fingers. But he’s also pretentious and unbearably arrogant and the very opposite of me.

So he can keep his unsolicited advice and his late night visits and his cocky smiles. I want none of it. Or him.

I want the opposite.

 

Shattered King (Lawless Kings, #1) by Sherilee Gray 

What if the man you love hated you more with every breath he took?

“Shattered King is a sexy, beautiful second chance love story… a truly enjoyable read.” – Sawyer Bennett, New York Timesbestselling author

Hunter King just got out of prison. Incarcerated for three years though an innocent man, his rage against the people who put him there knows no bounds. First up on his list for vengeance: the woman who betrayed him years ago. The woman he loved fiercely, the one bright light in his otherwise hard, ruthless life. She has information he needs. And he’s going to kidnap her, hold her hostage, in order to get it. But one look into Lulu’s eyes unleashes the true beast within. Hunter’s never hated anyone this deeply, or wanted any woman this badly.

Lulu had no choice: Either help send Hunter to prison, or see him destroyed. She couldn’t do that to the man she loved. Couldn’t do it to the father of her child. But Hunter was locked away before he had a chance to learn about his son—and a hard layer of despair has formed around his heart that she’s desperate to crack. And if Hunter is to give himself and Lulu a second chance at love, he needs to find a way past his darkest demons.

 

My Best Friend’s Ex by Meghan Quinn

When I found an eviction notice taped on my apartment door, I had two options: find a comfortable cardboard box to call home, or move in with Tucker Jameson.

Seeing that cardboard makes me feel itchy, I chose the latter. Which shouldn’t be that big of a deal Tucker is one of my good friends. And because he’s still pining after his ex-girlfriend and I’m trying to finish my nursing degree, there is nothing to worry about in the romance department, making my last semester an easy one to conquer.

Boy, was I wrong.

Rules are set, dinners are made, conversations are had, and a shirtless, swoony roommate walks around in nothing but a pair of black briefs, ruining me for every other man.

Before I know it, I turn into a panting, lust-filled woman begging for Tucker to kiss me, touch me, and show me exactly what is hiding under those briefs.

But with great orgasms, comes great consequences.

Tucker might be my friend and roommate but he’s also my best friend’s ex-boyfriend, making him completely off-limits. At least that’s what my brain is telling me, my heart is speaking an entirely different language.

 

Deklan by Shay Savage

I am his currency.

I’m supposed to marry the recently crowned mafia king of the Foley family as repayment for my father’s transgressions. I don’t understand why the Foleys would want me, but I’ve grown up in a crime family, and I know the ugly consequences of not doing what you’re told.

But as the wedding date approaches, the deal changes, and I’m about to be wed to a man I know nothing about. In fact, I don’t even know his last name.
Instead of becoming a mafia princess, I’m marrying the henchman.

Deklan.

After one look at him, I’m not sure I’ll survive the wedding night.
