Review: Irresistibly Broken by J Saman

ZAXTON

Aurelia Whitlock is an ex-stepsister I forgot long ago. Until she shows up as a design intern at my fashion company. And that’s the easy part. The part where she heats my blood, drawing me away from my grumpy, miserable side is another.

She has no business being here. The more I learn about how she got this job, the more perilous things become for me and my company.

I can’t trust her. I can’t fire her. And I can’t claim her full lips with mine.

Now it’s a keep your friends close and your enemies even closer situation.

Except keeping this stunning woman who surprises me at every turn close isn’t as easy as it sounds. She’s a delicious load of sunshine wrapped in smiles and enticing laughter. Her secrets and troubled past make me desperate to swoop in and fix them.

And did I mention the mouth on her? The one that challenges me and argues with me at every turn. The one I can’t stop staring at or fantasizing about.

I’m in trouble. So much trouble.

Snowed in with the Grump by Kat Baxter ~ Review

Jackie

This year, all I want for Christmas is to not see my ex-boyfriend’s wife flashing her baby bump all around town. When my best friend gifts me a week at a mountain cabin, I jump at the chance to get out of Saddle Creek for the holidays. Except instead of solitude and hot cocoa, I find the last thing I expect: Luca Daniels.

Not only is Luca the hottest guy I’ve ever known, but he’s also my best friend’s older brother. Apparently, he thinks the cabin is his for the week. But this is my vacation and I’m too stubborn to leave. If he finds my infectious Christmas joy annoying, then he can choke on a sugar plum! We’ve never gotten along and could legitimately argue about anything. So color me surprised when we’re snowed in together, and I realize the line between love and hate just might be thinner than the stripes on a candy cane.

Single Dad Santa by Heather Lauren ~ Review

One bookstore. One suspicious matchmaker. Tiss the season to be naughty.

Olive Adams is happy with her life. She has good friends, a job she loves, and she certainly doesn’t need a man to make things more complicated.

Until she gets thrown into a pool with Leo Miller.

But Leo isn’t looking for anything either. He’s a single dad way too focused on his career and his daughter. He’s comfortable in his life, too afraid to throw anything off balance. Something serious is off the table.

Or is it?

As Olive and Leo grow closer, their perceptions on relationships—and sex in public places—begin to change. But as life becomes more complicated, will it be enough?

The Secrets You Keep by Tracy Lorraine ~ Review

My naive heart only ever beat for two guys…

Two totally unattainable guys. Forbidden guys— the kind mothers warn their daughters about.

Tristan was the one everyone wanted… but he was also my brother’s best friend. Smart, kind, and hot as hell, with a one-way ticket straight to the NFL.

And then there was Knox… the bad-boy who turned my world upside down. Only a year older, he made me feel like it was just a silly crush… until the first time he kissed me.

The hot, soon-to-be-inked-up gangster from the wrong part of town broke every rule, and shattered hearts… I just never expected one of them to be mine.

The Orc from the Office by Kate Prior~ Review

Mate-bonding with a co-worker is against company policy, accidentally or not.
Janice knows better than anyone that entanglements with co-workers are risky business. But when Janice accidentally breaks a co-workers nose, she finds herself unexpectedly mated to an orc, and under Monster Resources’ scrutiny.
Khent from the IT Department is quiet and nerdy, despite the tusks. His emails are overly wordy. He won’t stop apologizing even though she’s the one who broke his glasses.
Clearly, fate got this one wrong.
All Janice has to do is stay away from Khent until the bond dissipates. Easy enough, right? Except…
…Her company laptop chooses this week to need the orc from the IT Department, repeatedly.
…She accidentally clicks on orc porn at work and has to take remedial phishing training with Khent.
…Their bond will keep pulling them back together until it is completed.

Whiskey Dream by Taryn Rivers ~ Review + Excerpt

Dreams can’t come true if you’re dead.

Rosalie
After spending my life fulfilling someone else’s dream, nothing will stop me from making my own come true in Whiskey Falls.
Not my parents who want me safely ensconced back home in Minnesota.
Not the sexy modern day viking who’s pursued me since I arrived.
And certainly not the gang trying to take out my sister and me.
They’re about to learn the hard way: I may act like a wallflower, but this rose has thorns.

Faking the Game by Claudia Burgoa ~ New Release Review

Know what they say about never mixing business with pleasure? Yeah, no. The one about never sleeping with your boss? I ignored it too. I blame Aslan Spearman, the boss. He’s a wealthy playboy who doesn’t believe in happily ever after. He’s demanding, a workaholic, and cynical. He’d rather have a root canal than be in a romantic relationship. Do you want to know a secret? I think he’s afraid of love.

Beyond the Team Review

All it takes is four days to change my carefully planned-out life. Four days to fall for Peyton Monroe. Four days to convince her to give me… us a chance.

Before her, baseball was the center of my world. Being the best. Getting a full-ride scholarship. Getting drafted. Going pro. But from the moment my frisbee lands at her feet on the beach, I can’t stop thinking about her.

She’s beautiful, funny, smart… and lives thirteen hours away. Long-distance love is a complication I should avoid, but staying away from Peyton is not an option.
