When reserved flight attendant Bianca gets one look at billionaire hotel owner James Cavendish, she loses all of her hard-won composure. For a girl who can easily juggle a tray of champagne flutes at 35,000 feet in three inch heels, she finds herself shockingly weak-kneed from their first encounter. The normally unruffled Bianca can't seem to look away from his electrifying turquoise gaze. They hold a challenge, and a promise, that she finds impossible to resist, and she is a girl who is used to saying no and meaning it.

An alpha dominant billionaire and a flight attendant.

Instant attraction, obsession, possession, there were so many similarities to our beloved Christian Grey in James Cavendish.

The characters are different, the plot is different but Mr Cavendish or James has a room on the 4th floor in his apartment and the similarities with FSOG are comparable with a lot of things. I realise this book was published in 2012 ironically the same year as FSOG so this was the "in thing" for that time, it's what readers wanted, they wanted more Christian Grey's, so with that in mind R.K. Lilley definitely delivered.

I enjoyed In Flight, its one of those books that have been sitting on my kindle a while, it was hot, I was intrigued, the more the story progressed, it wasn't all sex Bianca does have a past as does James and I liked the characters.

Sadly this is not a standalone and you are left with a cliffhanger. Please note that this is a trilogy and if you read a lot of books like me, have a budget for your reading this works out at for ebooks $16.43 OR £12.35 for all three books. So I enjoyed this book but won't be following the trilogy when I have so many other books on my kindle and use KU and audible But never say never, if I saw this on sale I would grab at it to see how James and Bianca's relationship progressed.

Lauren Blakeley has the perfect balance of funny, sexy with a dash of drama, swoon, and steam in her books. I absolutely loved this series.
THIS BOX SET CONTAINS 4 OF THE BOOK FROM THIS SERIES.



I loved them all and having just finished Full package I can't really say which was my favorite but I did love Wyatt and Natalie, probably just a tad more, their Vegas dilemma, the push and pull in their work and private relationship and how it all turned out for them, in the end, was entertaining.
I was looking forward to Chase's too when I finished the previous book with Full Package and the DR MC-hottie who had just returned from working away and I when I finished that story and this awesome box set I can honestly say I finished this series with a happy contented sigh.




Each book is interconnected so although you don't see much of the previous characters in for example Full Package the characters are linked in some way, in Full package Chase is the friend of Wyatt's who is also Wyatt's sister this is a friend's to lovers story.
All of these books are a friends to lovers story in some way.
Each book can be read a stand-alone are told in first person dual pov and lead to a hea.

I am now looking forward to Max and Henley's story I had a short glimpse at the end of Full package and I can't wait as it seems more an enemies to lovers story.

Brilliant box set and great in audio with the narration of Sebastian York.

I really can't fault this series, despite its cheesy Book titles these books in the Big Rock series really are my ideal kind of romance reads. A bit of swoon, a bit of sexy and a whole lot of hotness.

Bennett Fox walked into my life on one hell of a crappy Monday morning. I was late for the first day at my new job - a job I’d now have to compete for, even though I’d already worked eight years to earn it, because of an unexpected merger. While I lugged my belongings up to my new office, a meter maid wrote me a parking summons. She’d ticketed a long line of cars - except for the Audi parked in front of me, which happened to be the same make and model as mine. Annoyed, I decided to regift my ticket to the car that had evaded a fine.

Rivals by day lovers by night.

I love the cover of this book, its what drew me in.

I listened to this in audio, the narration really brought the characters, their word's, and their actions to life.

I laughed, swooned and was hooked on the story throughout.

This isn't your typical office romance. Analise and Bennett are fighting for the same job role now both of their companies have merged.
Two people who are attracted to each other two people wanting the same job, two people who find love in an unexpected race to success.

Loved it, We shouldn't is another story from Vi Keeland that I didn't want to end.

A story of second chances and trust.

Ares Kincaid, star quarterback, he's one of the good guys and not the typical man-whore kind of star player, he loves his family and sisters then there's Arianna Petrelli recovering alcoholic and the coaches daughter.

Ares and Arianna first meet when Arianna who has walked to work in the rain on her first day there goes to the changing room to rid herself of her wet clothes and she is walked in on by Ares.

Ares is instantly attracted by Arianna until he discovers who she is and he is nothing but judgemental of her past, her present and is basically repulsed by the sight of her.

Arianna has made mistakes, she is an alcoholic who is trying to change, she knows she cannot erase her past but with the help of her dad giving her a job at the club is taking one step at a time.

Ares is frosty towards her, he has his own judgements and feelings towards alcoholics due to his father and keeps his distance from Arianna.

This is kind of an enemies to friends romance that eventually becomes more and the more is hot!!



I listened to this in audio and I could't help but swoon each time Ares spoke, he had that laid back type of vibe with the sexy smirk that went along with him.

I loved it, I always love Samantha Towle's books and even though this is based on a sports star you don't have to be a fan of sports to read it, the author has you focusing on the characters, their words and actions rather than the setting.
I can't wait to jump into one of Samantha Towles other books she really is becoming my go to author when I want a good book that I will know for sure will hit all the desired spots in a romance read.




RUSH has steam, angst and drama. Told in first person dual pov and leads to hea.

Tia Monroe was smart, sassy, and successful. Sure, she could get a little crazy at times - life around Tia was never boring - but that was part of her appeal. And while she didn't see herself as classically beautiful, she had no shortage of options in the boyfriend department. She just hadn't found one who held her interest. Until she laid eyes on Eric Larsson, and then it was lust at first sight. He packed the perfect mix of smoldering sexy and unapologetic cool into his blond-haired, blue-eyed, ridiculously hot six-foot-four frame.

OK I'll say it, Tia Monroe is Bonkers, absolutely out of her tree.




Who flies from New York to L.A, fakes an invite, sneaks her way into a premier to meet her crush just to prove he's not all she built him up to be, to prove he's just not all that and hopefully be rid of her obsession? Tia Monroe of course. And did it work?..... Nah



Tia meets her movie star crush Eric Larsson and her plan backfires when he asks her out and from here on out Tia's adventure begins.

“Wow, it’s almost midnight.”
“Do you turn into a pumpkin at midnight?” His lips twisted in amusement, a waft of his cologne assaulting my nose.

Do not sniff him, I reminded myself. That would be bad.

I listened to this In audio and for once had to slow it down, I could tell with the narrator that Tia was the type of person who talked a mile a minute, it suited her character, putting foot to mouth that sort of thing but sometimes I couldn't tell if it was Tia talking to herself or to someone else, she talked to herself a lot working out her thoughts, like I said Bonkers.



Crush is refreshing, funny, hot, with swoon-worthy moments and I loved it!

If your looking for a rom-com that hits all the right spots then this is it. I am looking forward to reading Eric's friend Ryan's story next.

Second chance romance, Hot tattoo artist, A Great plot with twists and turns, an unpredictable plot, it ticks all my box's and I loved it!!



Such a breath of fresh air and a unique story-line.

I have read books where the character suffers from amnesia, that isn't new or unique in that way but there was just something that had me longing to see how this all played out, it wasn't just a case of someone trying to regain their memories.
Kylie Scott leaves no room for boredom, the plot is spaced out brilliantly with angst, drama, hotness and I was captivated with the story from the very the moment Clem who is still recovering from her attack which left her with no memories, walks into the tattoo parlor asking Ed if he was the one who gave her a tattoo and she was asked to leave in anger and couldn't understand why.

You are taken on Clem's journey of trying to piece back together her life and trying to figure out who she was before the accident and she discovers along the way that she likes creating a new Clementine. her first kiss, first sexual experience, Clem's story is Bittersweet.

A beautiful story of second chances with twists and turns woven into the plot. I loved it and was sad when I reached the hea.

Narrated brilliantly, I felt like I was there with the characters and although the narrator is female she didn't half make Ed come across as one swoon-worthy and sexy alpha who made me drool.

I want more like this, I loved it and would recommend it.

Wow, fan me down. Firstly If you love Alpha protective men then this is a series for you.

I have read previous books and this is Thomas's story. In each book you get a glimpse of each character, the Gallos are a close-knit family and I absolutely love every single one of them. Three yummy brothers one sassy sister and a mother and father that give you parent envy. With each book, the family grows as another of the Gallo men settle down and Izzy finally meets her match too with James.

Thomas aka Blue is undercover working in an MC and finally, after years working away and missing his family, they finally have enough evidence to bring down the MC the only problem is Thomas has fallen for Roxy one of the women in the MC who was brought up in that environment by her biker whore mother.

A great story with a lot of action and hotness. Chelle Bliss really knows how to write the sizzling scenes and I love her dirty talking Alpha men.

I listened to this in audio and loved the dual narration.

Great series and you can grab the first books free in a box set.

If your looking for a series with an alpha males, sassy females and a whole lot of hotness your just can't go wrong with any book by Chelle Bliss and especially the Men Of Inked series.

I have read other books but hadn't read Michael and Mia's story, so when I was in the mood for a good read with an alpha male I dove into my unread kindle treats and jackpot!! it was a knockout and just what I was looking for.

Michael is an MMA fighter, a gentle giant, hes a man with iron fists and a warm heart.

Michael first meets Mia at the hospital when he is brought in with an injury following a fight. Mia isn't impressed with the fighter who goes against everything she stands for. Mia is a doctor, patches people up and saves lives While Michael inflicts pain.

You could say Michael finally wins Mia over with his charm and Witt and the chemistry between both is so hot, I mean how could Mia not resist the Gallow charm?

There's a crazy ex and a whole lot of drama, hotness and a good plot you can't put down.

Michael is part of the Gallow family and being such a close Italian family you get to catch up with any of your favourite characters from other books too. The Gallow family has four delicious brothers, one sister and a few novellas of family gatherings so there's more than enough in this series to keep you entertained.

I haven't read Thomas's story and I am so looking forward to the guy who claims will never be pussy whipped eating his words.

For alpha males, women with backbone and sizzling hotness the Men of inked series is a definite read.

Hooked can be read as a standalone. Told in dual pov and leads to a hea. Available in Audio

What Paul fails to mention is his best man, Porter, will be joining us, who just so happens to be my childhood crush and the man who broke my heart four years ago. What is supposed to be a fun family bonding experience across Route 66 turns into a war of pranks, awkward moments and bathrooms full of dirty flannel shirts and day-old beard clippings.

So many moments had me gushing, swooning or laughing.

This is not a book to be read in a quite doctors surgery, for instance, it has the ability to make you com-bust with laughter when you least expect it.

What a beautiful story!



I have read three books now by Kirsty Moseley, what the heck have I been doing!! I want to devour this author's books right now having just finished Always You as well.

Each book I have read has had a lasting effect on me and each journey is unforgettable, I definitely need to read more from this author.

Always You is a Young Adult cross over into Adulthood and independence. The story of two best friends who become more, well eventually anyway.

I love a friend's to lovers romance and this book has all that and more including heartwarming, heartbreaking and intense moments.

I have to admit Riley and Clay didn't half make me roll my eyes at the beginning of their story, they are best friends who are very touchy-feely, they hold hands, hug and Riley jumps into his arms quite often and then she wonders why her boyfriend gets jealous. Clay has felt more for Riley for a long time and boy is she oblivious to it.

Always You is a journey into what becomes a beautiful relationship with lots of bumps and scrapes along the way to test the strength of not only Clay and Riley's relationship but friendship too but what can I say this is a relationship that could stand the test of time and I loved taking the journey with them.



This is one of those books that I am certain I read a long time ago but Goodreads doesn't seem to have it on my shelf *rolls eyes at Goodreads, so I was not aware I had already read this once I started but things started to become familiar to the point I knew I had read it before so I downloaded the audio and it was like a brand new story for me even though I knew what was coming, the narrator did a fab job of doing both male and female characters. Riley and Clay are in their teens so she didn't have to put on that pretend deeper male voice and it worked.

Recommended YA friends to lovers story.
