Justin Hayes was my best friend up until the day he broke my heart and disappeared. When I find out he’s my new boss, I’m about to leave with my middle fingers held high. Instead, I stop dead in my tracks as soon as he steps into my office. Justin’s all grown up, and he’s even more gorgeous than I remembered. He was always handsome but now he’s the kind of man I really want to… get to know. But it doesn’t matter. I despise him. He says he wants to work together very, very closely, but I can’t let him anywhere near me.

Justin Hayes was my best friend up until the day he broke my heart and disappeared.

When I find out he’s my new boss, I’m about to leave with my middle fingers held high. Instead, I stop dead in my tracks as soon as he steps into my office.

Justin’s all grown up, and he’s even more gorgeous than I remembered. He was always handsome but now he’s the kind of man I really want to… get to know.

But it doesn’t matter. I despise him.

He says he wants to work together very, very closely, but I can’t let him anywhere near me. I’m afraid I might slap him right before I kiss his soft, full lips.

He says he remembers everything we went through, and he wants to make it right.

I think he just wants to taste the one girl that got away.

I don’t know what to do. This is my dream job and “quitter” isn’t in my vocabulary, but the sight of Justin makes me want to run my nails down his bare back, nice and rough.

I hate my new boss.

But I want him so badly it hurts.

This book was well written and the characters are relatable. I enjoyed this love, hate romance. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a steamy hot love/hate romance. Meghan Kelly did a good job of bringing this story to life! Happy Listening!

When Ryder Storm literally comes crashing into her home and turns her life upside down, she finds herself falling hard. Madison's denial about her feelings and dismissal of his advancements only fuels Ryder's determination to make her his. Madison may think she poses a challenge for Ryder, but victory will be his, and when all her defenses are down, he'll be more than willing to deliver whatever she needs.

I really loved this book and it's characters. I love that Nicole Garcia wrote a story about a learning disability. There are so many family members that suffer from this disability and I love the way she embraced this in her story. Great book! I think Kai Kennicott & Wen Ross did an excellent job of bringing these characters to life! I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance book!

Seventeen years ago, Fitz Quinn stole the heart of Cadence Riley. He took her innocence, then left her broken. When a twist of fate brings them back together again, she quickly learns even time couldn’t dim their chemistry. Fitz was sexier than ever—successful and provocative. He became the man she always knew he would be, and the heat between them quickly became unbearable. Despite the promise she made to herself, she felt the walls to her heart start to crumble and began to fall all over again.

However, things aren’t the same as they once were. Cadence is the driving force behind a non-profit organization where she handles each case with the determination of a shark. Fitz is known as Washington’s fixer. He is the CEO for a public relations firm—one that represents the politicians who fight against everything Cadence stands for. What do they say about opposites attract?

Finding themselves at a crossroads, Fitz needs to decide if going against his father is worth pursuing a second chance with Cadence. One wrong move and his reputation could be obliterated. For Cadence, she needs to let go of her secrets and forgive Fitz for leaving her alone all those years ago. But more importantly, she needs to decide if sacrificing her values is worth being with the only man she has ever loved.

This duet was excellent! I love Cadence and Fitz! These two go through a lot! I enjoyed all the characters. This book has a little bit of everything in it...and I enjoyed it all! This duet is the first books that I have read by Dakota Willink but she is on my radar now and I look forward to reading more from her! Zachary Webber and Lacy Laurel were definitely the best choices to bring this wonderful story to life!

Brett, on the other hand, has the world by the tail with his perfect bachelor's life. He has an Upper East Side apartment, a thriving business of his own, and several admirers after a quickie divorce leaves him single once more. But to his nosy yet loving mother, a man of his age and stature should have married again by now.

When a chance encounter leaves both divorcees needing one another, they agree on a sexy deal that takes them all the way to Malibu. She's looking for sex. Him, a fiancée. But when the "friends with benefits" line becomes blurred, they each have a choice to make: give in to the love or find solace elsewhere.

I really enjoyed this book. This is my first time reading Jamie W. Powell. I really enjoyed it. The characters where very relatable. Keira Stevens did a good job with narrating. My only suggestion would be that there be a difference in her voice between Brett and Quinn.

Laz Rawlings had them both, until he lost it all...

Laz, a former world-famous music producer screwed up everything thanks to his rock-n-roll lifestyle, but he's been given an opportunity to prove his genius in the music industry wasn't a fluke, and he's hell-bent on not letting history repeat itself. But that's proving difficult when the young singer he's tasked with grooming has become the object of his every desire.

Life has been an uphill battle for Aundrea Newton, so when a sexy, tattooed stranger hand delivers her dream of a music career, she's skeptical. Nothing ever comes easy, and she knows Laz has the power to crush both her career and her heart with his undeniable s*x appeal and charismatic swagger.

When the line between mentor and student blurs, both begin to question what's more important: Love, s*x or the music.

STANDALONE. No Cliffhanger.

This is my first time reading a book by this author but it won’t be my last. The characters are well developed and very relatable. This book is fast moving and has enough angst and drama. I recommend this for anyone who likes sexy and hot reads. Meghan Kelly did a wonderful job of bringing this story to life.

Three stories, three heroines, many heroes. Many sexy, shirtless, dirty-talking heroes. Because you can never get enough reverse harem tales...HEAs guaranteed!

All for One

Can you get a second chance - with three men at once?

We're all grown up, and we're finally in one place again. Rex, Shaun, and Taylor. My three best friends from high school.

Gorgeous, successful, sexy as hell. They all came back into my life when I needed them most. I can't believe I'm having these fantasies about all of them. About having all of them at once.

Then one warm night, everything explodes. They're willing to indulge my fantasies... And give me a happy-ever-after.

Together.

Power Play

Four hot hockey players. One woman who spends her life behind a computer screen. After watching her high school crush and his friends on the ice, things definitely heat up in this reverse harem romance...

When I drunkenly message my old high school crush one night, I never imagined he’d respond. It’s been so many years and I thought he’d forgotten all about me. He hasn’t - not even close. And when we meet in person all these years later, he’s a handsome pro hockey player...with three equally sexy friends.

They could spend every night with a different woman, but they want me. I’ve been so focused on my job and my computer that when this complicated, real-world dilemma comes up, I’m not sure what to do.

Am I supposed to choose just one?

Claiming Her Cowboys

Three cowboys are used to working together on their Montana ranch. Now they’re working to fulfill my every desire!

I'm sent to Montana by my New York magazine to write a travel story. Staying at a ranch, riding horses, gazing at the vast night sky - it will be like a vacation. And the bonus: the three ranch owners are all hot, muscled and 100 percent cowboy. Total eye candy.

And they all want me.

Can this city girl handle three rough cowboys? And what if they want me to be their forever cowgirl?

I got 3 smoking hot books in one! These books are sizzling. That are well written and the characters are very relatable! Lacy Laurel is a great narrated. I am totally in love with her. She totally brings the books alive! Love it I recommend that you give this one a try!

He’s America’s hottest rockstar, and he’s harboring a dark secret...one that could end with deadly consequences.

She’s a small-town girl from the Midwest, escaping an overprotective family.

After catching the first solo gig by the rocker with the looks of a Greek god and the voice of an angel, Evelyn’s a goner.

But Charlie Walker is the worst kind of bad boy all wrapped up in a smoking-hot body, surrounded by scandal and completely untouchable to someone as ordinary as Evelyn.

Or so she thought.

When the chemistry between them is unleashed, the danger involved extends far beyond the threat of their relationship being thrust into the spotlight.

This is by no means your typical rock star romance! With that said this book takes you on an emotionally roller coaster that I actual enjoyed. I loved the characters because they had such depth to them. Jennifer Ann made me look at rockstar romances differently now. I love when you think a book will be one way and it totally goes against the grain! I recommend this book! It is a good read and I can't wait to see what's next.

Cadence Riley didn’t have time for boys - no matter how potent their smiles were. School and working at Camp Riley were her only priorities. She knew better than to fall for someone like Fitz Quinn, the spoiled, bad boy son of a wealthy politician. But the second he spoke to her, she knew she was in over her head. He was a gorgeous trouble maker with a cocky attitude. Her heart warned her, but she didn’t listen. There was something protective and good beneath the bad boy exterior that made her insides flutter.

One summer. One touch....

Cadence Riley didn’t have time for boys - no matter how potent their smiles were. School and working at Camp Riley were her only priorities. She knew better than to fall for someone like Fitz Quinn, the spoiled, bad boy son of a wealthy politician. But the second he spoke to her, she knew she was in over her head. He was a gorgeous trouble maker with a cocky attitude. Her heart warned her, but she didn’t listen. There was something protective and good beneath the bad boy exterior that made her insides flutter. Before she knew it, she fell hard and fast.

Fitz wasn’t prepared to meet a girl like Cadence. She was shy and innocent - and nothing like the girls who usually flocked his doorstep. How could he resist her mile-long blond hair and emerald eyes? He knew he shouldn’t want her. His father already had other plans for him, and a relationship with her could never go beyond the summer. He thought their stolen kisses by the lake were only supposed to be a summer fling. Falling for her shouldn’t have happened. But it did.

Now the clock is counting down until Fitz has to return to the life that awaits him in Washington, DC. As September draws closer, how will they survive the end of everything they’ve come to love?

I really enjoyed following the love story of Cadence and Fitz. This is a beautiful forbidden love story. Dakota Willink did an excellent job of building relatable characters. She also did a great job of pulling you in and leaving you guessing on a few things! I recommend this book to anyone who like a beautiful love story that may or may not have a happy ending you will have to read it to find out, I can't wait to get my hands on Cadence Defined!
