A girl in danger… Aubrey Walsh never dreamed that she would find herself in an abusive relationship, but after her boyfriend hits her so hard he breaks her tooth, she flees the University of Maine to hide on a remote island with her best friend. Only to discover that she is pregnant. Terrified of what will happen if Jared finds out, she is walking along the rocks, deciding her future, when she slips. A guy with a secret past…

After a job gone wrong, Riker has left the assassin business and is incognito as a ferryboat operator off the shores of Maine.

But when the truth about her situation is revealed, he will do anything to protect Aubrey and her unborn child. Even marry her. Even kill for her.

When Jared comes looking for the only girl who has ever rejected him, Riker won’t allow it. And Aubrey is torn between protecting herself and her child, or protecting the mysterious husband she has come to love. And when chance brings them together but fate tears them apart, can their love survive the storm?

This was a pretty good read.  A bit on the angsty side, but I like that 😉  I loved Riker’s protective side and how willing he was to take care of Aubrey and her unborn baby.

Susan’s Review: 4 stars

I have to admit, I liked this one more than the first in the series.  I connected with Alexa more than I had connected with Haven.  It was easy to see why Alexa made the choices she did regarding her and Maverick all those years ago.  I loved Mav’s protectiveness and was glad that he didn’t give up on her even though she had Grant in the picture.

*REVIEW BLITZ* The Player by K. Bromberg

 

 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg.

Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.

So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.

Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.

And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play.

But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat, or is one of them bound to get burned?

Susan’s Review: 4 stars

This was everything I’ve come to expect from K. Bromberg’s writing!  Sweet, angsty, witty, and romantic!  Yes, this ends on a cliffie, so I’m bummed about that, but I’ll be waiting for the rest of the story!

 

 

 

 

 

HeadShot ColorNew York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.

A mom of three, she plots her novels in between school runs and soccer practices, more often than not with her laptop in tow.

Since publishing her first book in 2013, K. has sold over one million copies of her books and has landed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists over twenty-five times.

Susan’s Review: 3.5 stars

Here we go with my fav trope….fake to real! We’ve got hot millionaire biker Hawke who proposes marriage to his new stepsister, Amy, within minutes of meeting her. Why does he do this? Because Amy’s mom is wife number 9 and he needs to gain control of the family business and the only way he can do this is by being married. Amy accepts the proposal and off we go falling in love!!!I liked Amy. She was a ballerina with a hot streak. She gave as good as she got. Hawke was a bit of a jerk. All the way through this too. I get his trust issues, but if he had just asked questions and pushed her to answer, they wouldn’t have had any trouble. His groveling was good though (and ya’ll know how much I LOVE a good grovel scene lol)

I’ve had Candace Havens on my TBR for a while. I’ll be moving her other stuff up the list since I really did enjoy this one 🙂

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00022]Hiring my brother’s best friend was not on my to-do list.

Neither was he.

 

Expanding my dirty cocktail bar into food was supposed to be easy, except finding a chef in my little town of Whiskey Key is anything but.

Until Parker Hamilton comes home—bringing his Michelin starred chef’s hat with him.

He has no work. I need someone like him in my new kitchen.

There’s just one problem: I hate his cocky, filthy-mouthed, sexy-as-hell guts.

Even if I might want him. Just a little…

 

 

Working for my best friend’s sister? Not on my to-do list.

She’s another story.

 

Whiskey Key was supposed to be a relaxing vacation, except I haven’t reached the heights I have by lying in a hammock drinking cocktails. So when Raven Archer is desperate for a chef, I offer up my skills.

I’m bored. She needs what I can give her.

Except there’s a problem: I’ve always hated her.

Her and her big, blue eyes, sassy mouth, and killer curves.

If only I didn’t want her.

Susan’s Review:

3.5 stars

When you have a TBR list that is as huge as mine is, you have lots of good writers on there that you just haven’t gotten to yet. Emma Hart is one of those on my list. I even own several of her books (that’s the book hoarding problem that I don’t have). So, after reading this one she’ll be moving up the list.

This was a enemies to lovers AND brother’s best friend book. Raven and Parker have known each other for years. And hated each other for years. I’m not quite sure why they became so antagonistic to each other in the first place, but they are. So, Raven needs a chef for her cocktail bar and Parker is home for the summer with his 3 Michelin stars and offers to work for her. Their close proximity brings them from angry bickering to sexy banter to realizing they have feelings for each other that isn’t hate.

Quite honestly, Raven flew off the handle a bit much for my liking while Parker was calm and collected. However, some of the things Parker said to Raven at the beginning would have had me tossing him out the door regardless of if he was my brother’s best friend and cooking for my place of business. I did like they both felt guilty for keeping their feelings secret and felt the need to be honest with their families.

There were some funny parts and the story flowed smoothly. I loved the food and drinks part…she had some interesting names for her cocktails 😉

*thanks to InkSlinger PR for sharing a copy of this with me*

MUp1
I knew I was making a mistake. After what Raven said last night at dinner, I had the strongest urge to find out what her cocktail menu was. With names like Dirty Screw and The Slutwhisperer, what other gems did she have hidden on there?
Shit, what gems were hidden inside her apparently filthy mind?
I had no place to be thinking that. She was Ryan’s sister and the bane of my goddamn existence. I didn’t give a shit what was inside her head or how she came up with a filthy cocktail menu.
I was going to believe that she’d spent stupid amounts of time on the Internet coming up with those kinds of names. Seeing her in that damn short dress yesterday had already affected me enough—not to mention the fact that she’d changed since I last saw her.
I didn’t know people could change so much in only three years, but Raven Archer had. She was no longer post-grad, trying to seriously figure out what she wanted to do with her life, uncertain and serving burgers to people to make money.
She was grown-up, in more ways than just her age. She was even hotter-headed that she was back then. She seemed stronger and more stubborn, and her tongue was so sharp I probably have scars from how quickly she cut me with her words.
She was taller and fucking curvier, too.
Her lips were fuller. Her eyes were brighter. And the general air that hung about her, that hint of sass and sexiness, the very same thing that made me insult her whenever I opened my mouth almost made me want her, too.
And that was exactly why I couldn’t sit and think about what went on in her mind—filthy or otherwise.
No matter what she looked like or how fucking hot she was, she was my best friend’s sister. Nobody was more off-limits than she was. That wasn’t a new development. It had always been that way.
Thank fucking god I was only here for the summer, and only because my mother had guilted me into it.
As soon as the summer was over, I’d go for my next challenge.
I could get through a few weeks of being in the same town or two as Raven—because after today, avoidance was at the top of my life.
Otherwise, I’d go fucking insane.
Dirty was right on the seafront, only meters away from a small, sandy bay. It’d only taken me a few minutes to walk here from where I’d parked downtown, and despite the music coming from inside the bar, I could still hear the gentle crashing of the waves as they crawled up the sand. The water was right out, and I stared out at the water as I headed up the hill to the bar.
Fairy lights twinkled along the underside of the roof that jutted out over the sidewalk. It was like a goddamn princess castle from the outside, but the beachy vibe was evident. Different sized and colored shells covered the pillars that held up the balcony that jutted out over the front doors.
I pushed open the door. Cold air blasted into me, and so did the heavy bass beat of the music that blared out from the speakers just above my head. There were more fairy lights inside, but they were strung all beneath the bar, across the beams on the ceiling, and over the back wall where the spirits were on the wall. There wasn’t much else in the way of lighting, but what there was was effective enough in holding the entire space into a balance between bright and dusky.
The inside of Raven’s bar was like being outside at the moment the sun set.
I cast my gaze over the rest of the bar. The solid, wood tables and stools that lines the walls and filled the space to my left all had tiny vases of fresh flowers in. Even those were surrounded by fairy lights.
Fucking hell, did she let a class of little girls in here to decorate?
No matter what I felt about the fairy lights, it looked good. Damn good.
I stepped up to the bar and leaned forward on it. Raven was at the other end of the bar, wearing jeans and a tight tank top that tucked beneath the waistband. Strappy, silver heels on her feet glinted off the under-bar lighting, and it was all too easy for me to drop my eyes there then slowly drag my gaze up the length of her entire body.
Light bounced off the chrome cocktail shaker in her hand as she shook it. She popped off the top with one slick of her thumb, and without spilling a drop, poured the pink-red liquid into two martini-style glasses. With her other hand, she reached back to the register and jabbed at it.
Seconds later, she was handing them back their change. It all happened in a flash.
How did such she go from lost to…this…so quick?
“Raven!” A dark-haired woman sitting a few stools away from me with her friend yelled. “There’s a hot guy staring at you!”
I laughed loudly as Raven jerked around. Her gaze landed on me with what felt like a snap, and I swore she mouthed, “Motherfucker,” before she stalked to this end of the bar.
Her hands slapped on the bar in front of me. “What are you doing here?”
“I told you I was coming to check out your menu.”
“He was checking out more than the menu,” the woman’s friend giggled.
Raven held her finger up to them, and with her other hand, slapped a smooth, laminated menu in front of me. “Did you drive?”
“No, I walked all the way from Key West.” I picked up the menu. “Of course I drove.”
“Pick one,” she said, moving away. “I’m not serving you anymore than that. Make it a good choice. What can I get for you?” she asked someone else, cutting me off before I could say a word.
I raised my eyebrows.
“She runs a tight ship,” the first woman said. “Three days ago, there was a guy in here spiking drinks. She caught him and bashed him in the balls with her cocktail shaker so he couldn’t run from the security guard.”
Could my eyebrows go up any higher? “That doesn’t surprise me in the slightest. I’ve seen her do worse.”
The second woman’s eyes narrowed. “You have? You know her?”
The first woman rolled her eyes. “Of course he does, Cam. When have you seen her react to a customer like that? He obviously pissed her off in a past life or something.”
“I should be so lucky.” I smirked. “More like all in this life.”
“Her brother’s friend, right?” She tilted her head to the side. “Yeah, she mentioned she hated you.”
She’d talked about me?
“She didn’t say you were hot, though,” the second woman said.
“Camille!”
Ahhh.
The best friends.
“What?” Camille said. “I’m just saying.”
“No more Slutwhisperers for you,” the other woman—the one I presumed to be Lani—said, reaching for her glass.
Camille leaned over and slurped the last of the drink through the straw.
That explained the name of the cocktail.
“What are you doing?” Raven asked, stopping in front of them. “Cam? Your glass is empty. Let me refill that for you.” She winked to the other girl as she turned around.
What was she doing?
She put her back to her friends and grabbed the tequila bottle. She tipped it over a cocktail shaker without actually pouring anything into it. My lips quirked up as she put together what was some pink juice or something and blended it with raspberries.
She poured the mixture into a glass with some vigor in front of Camille.
She’d made her a placebo.
“Made your choice?” Raven turned to me, holding onto the shaker.
“No.” I spun the menu to face her. “What do you think I should have?”
Completely straight-faced, she said, “The Blue Balls.”

Walk of Shame by Lauren Layne

The City’s HOTTEST Cold War is here!
WALK OF SHAME
a Love Unexpectedly novel
Lauren Layne
Releasing April 18th, 2017
Loveswept

 

Sparks fly between a misunderstood New York socialite and a cynical divorce lawyer in this lively standalone rom-com from the USA Today bestselling author of Blurred Lines and Love Story.
 
Pampered heiress Georgianna Watkins has a party-girl image to maintain, but all the shopping and clubbing is starting to feel a little bit hollow—and a whole lot lonely. Though Georgie would never admit it, the highlights of her week are the mornings when she comes home at the same time as her uptight, workaholic neighbor is leaving to hit the gym and put in a long day at the office. Teasing him is the most fun Georgie’s had in years—and the fuel for all her naughtiest daydreams.
Celebrity divorce attorney Andrew Mulroney doesn’t have much time for women, especially spoiled tabloid princesses who spend more time on Page Six than at an actual job. Although Georgie’s drop-dead gorgeous, she’s also everything Andrew resents: the type of girl who inherited her penthouse instead of earning it. But after Andrew caps one of their predawn sparring sessions with a surprise kiss—a kiss that’s caught on camera—all of Manhattan is gossiping about whether they’re a real couple. And nobody’s more surprised than Andrew to find that the
answer just might be yes.
 

 

Lauren Layne is the New York Times bestselling author of over a dozen romantic comedies.
 
A former e-commerce and web marketing manager from Seattle, Lauren relocated to New York City in 2011 to pursue a full-time writing career.
 
She lives in midtown Manhattan with her high-school sweetheart, where she writes smart romantic comedies with just enough sexy-times to make your mother blush. In LL’s ideal world, every stiletto-wearing, Kate Spade wielding woman would carry a Kindle stocked with Lauren Layne books.

Susan’s Review: 4 stars

Awww this was sweet and funny and such a perfect weekend read. Lauren Layne is quickly working her way up my favorite author list. I think it was romance at it’s finest.

Socialite Georgiana Watkins, or Georgie to her friends, runs into stodgy Andrew Mulroney, Esquire every morning at 5 am…he’s leaving to work out, she’s coming in from a night of partying. They always trade barbs and Georgie finds herself wondering why he doesn’t like her and why she even cares. The barbs coming from Andrew aren’t necessarily because he doesn’t like her, he just doesn’t know what to do with her and is a little awkward. Their fledgling friendship turns into more, but will it last with them being such complete opposites?

Georgie was funny and witty and so likable. She was happy and wanted everyone to be happy too. Andrew was a little awkward because he was super smart and he really had no clue how to deal with Georgie since she was so different from him. He just knew she would be trouble for him so he tried to push her away. They were really great together.

Like I said, this was pure romance. There was a little conflict above and beyond their initial antagonism of each other, but nothing that they couldn’t get over rather quickly. I loved the light feeling of this story 🙂

Ashes to ashes.
Dust to dust.
And all that fucking shit.
I had killed.
I had sacrificed.
The innocent and the corrupt. I knew blood and I knew
violence.
Never imagining I could know love too.
Mia Ryder was a woman to love. To cherish. To fucking claim.
Now, forever, and every day in between.
If there was anyone I’d go to Hell and back for, it was her.
Even if meant, going to war with…
My fucking brother.

 

 

“Tell me you don’t love me. Tell me you don’t wish it were
me who held you in their arms. Tell me you don’t want me to kiss you right now,
yeah? Touch you, take you to our bed and make sweet fuckin’ love to all night
long, until there isn’t an inch of your skin I haven’t kissed, licked, or
touched. Tell me you don’t feel me,” he whimpered, placing his hand over my
heart, “here.”
“Creed,” I whispered in a voice I didn’t recognize. Trying to reel in my
feelings, hide the fact that he still had an effect on me.
After all this time.
“Tell me any of that, and I swear I’ll leave you alone, cuz at the end of the
day… All I ever wanted was for you to be happy, and if that’s not wit’ me, then
at least I have the memory of the love of my fuckin’ life.” He placed his
forehead on mine, bringing his hands up to frame my face again. “Say the words,
babe,” he groaned in a tone that made my stomach flutter and my body warm. His
mouth so close to mine that I could feel him breathe on me. The smell of cigarettes
and mint took over my senses. As if he was testing me, he licked his lips
slowly, provoking me. Proving that he was right. I shut my eyes. I had to. The
realization was too hard to admit, and I knew he could see it in my gaze.
He knew me. “Creed,” I panted, my breathing mimicking his. “Please…”
“Please what, baby?” he rasped as if he was hanging on by a thread.

Waiting for me to say the magic words that would
set us both free.

Susan’s Review:

*SPOILERS POSSIBLE*

I’m torn. I’m giving this 3.5 stars and I don’t know if I want to round up or down.

This was the conclusion to Creed and Mia’s story. If you recall, I wasn’t totally happy with the first book in this series (<a href=”https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1788891849?book_show_action=false&from_review_page=1″>see my review here</a>). While I got more of Creed and Mia, I got them with Noah thrown in the mix. Let me stop right here and say I normally do NOT read love triangles, but I figured this wouldn’t be too bad since Mia loved Creed, and has loved him since she was 9, regardless of her situation with Noah. So, up until the 50% mark I was ok. I understood what was going on and why Noah was around and everything. But then! That happened and once again, I understood the character motivations so I was ok. BUT then! And while I was hesitant, I figured it would all work out for the good and we would get back to Creed and Mia.

BUT THEN! At the 73ish% mark, I put the book down and had to call my BFF. I actually told her I was done and I wasn’t finishing it. I can’t express to you my TOTAL disappointment in the characters. She felt it wasn’t right…not necessarily *wrong*, but just not right. And he KNEW she was not feeling right. That’s why he kept putting it off for so long. And the other he witnessed it. I turned off the Kindle and played some Candy Crush and Croppsies before deciding that M. wouldn’t leave us like that and I returned to reading. And sadly, it stayed the way it was for a good long while.

Creed took care of the MC business. We met el Santo. We saw el Diablo again. That was pretty interesting. I was slightly confused as to how come the main focus of Creed’s dad’s mess wasn’t acquired at any point in between when he first wanted her and when he got her. He had 7 years. But at least that scumball got what he deserved. And through it all, we were shown what we all knew all along…Creed is amazing. His love for Mia was never wavering and although he thought she deserved better than him, I think it was the other way around and he deserved better than Mia.

When finally, FINALLY, Mia and Creed are together again, I have to admit I did love it. I wish we would have had more of them, same wish as first book. The epilogue was wonderful and had me smiling.

Once again I’ll say that M. Robinson can write an amazing story that sucks you in whether you feel comfortable with it or not. You’ll keep reading knowing she’s a romantic at heart 😉 And I’ll also say again, what bothered me here may not bother other readers and that is perfectly ok since we all have different tastes and triggers 🙂

Blurb:

“Ever f*cked a pirate?”

He was insufferable, deeply scarred, and frustratingly gorgeous, and he was the man who was blackmailing her into tying the knot.

Cora Harris has never had luck with men. Being the daughter of a ruthless crime boss tended to put a dent in any relationship, but she never imagined she’d get kidnapped in the dead of night by pirates. She sure as hell never imagined the asshole with the smoldering gaze would threaten everyone she loved if she didn’t become his wife.

Only Captain James Crow wants more than just her hand in holy matrimony. He wants her absolute submission. He wants her pain. He wants the one thing she’s never given anyone — her heart. But is he willing to give the daughter of his sworn enemy his in return?

“How easily his eyes could make her forget that he was her captor. Not her savior.”

But when the truth is revealed, can James keep Cora from the true evil in their midst? Can he win before his revenge cost him more than just his life? And how far will Cora go to free herself of the man who enchanted her, seduced her, and when she submitted, imprisoned her?

Vengeance and betrayal will either bring two warring families together or obliterate them all.

This book is adult and intended for a mature audience with strong elements of language, sex, and a dirty mouthed pirate. It has cases of BDSM, kink, and violence.

Susan’s Review: 5 stars

A modern day pirate AND mafia business all in one book! That checked off so many yeses for me. And Airicka Phoenix did a bang up job with it and I LOVED it!

Captain James Crow has wanted revenge on Giovanni de Marco for years because de Marco was the person behind the death of his twin sister. So when supposed government officials approach him about him helping them to take him down he agrees. Captain Crow ends up kidnapping de Marco’s daughter Cora but has second thoughts about turning her over after he gets a good look at her and her fiesty personality. Instead, he gets her to marry him knowing that will help his revenge along. What he doesn’t expect is for them to fall in love.

Gah. I just loved all the characters in here! James was alpha and had no problem spanking Cora when she disobeyed him. But at the same time, he made sure Cora was well taken care of and even spoiled. It was sweet. And Cora was submissive in the bedroom and sassy out of it. She was strong and capable and was good for James.

Cora’s parents were awesome too. Elise was prim and proper and totally bad a*s. Gio had a dry sense of humor and had me chuckling a few times. Yet he pulled no punches and had no problem showing us why he was the head of the mafia clan.

Great action, hot love scenes and wonderful characters. This was awesome and I will gladly read more from Airicka Phoenix!
