Excerpt

“Good morning, Mr Williams.”

Mr Williams? She’s never called me that before. It’s always been Harry or Giant. That’s her comeback for me calling her Shrimp. She’s four-foot-seven, so my six-foot-three frame, towers over hers.

Spinning around, I almost swallow my tongue when I find her standing in the doorway to my office. She’s wearing a high-waisted tight fitting skirt that stops just above her knees. It hugs her body perfectly. I can see a hint of white lace protruding from underneath her white silk blouse. She looks like an angel. A sinfully, hot as hell angel. The thin red belt around her tiny waist matches her sexy red heels. She’s sex on legs, a walking fucking wet dream.

I swear I’m holding my breath as my eyes drink her in. Her long blonde hair is pulled into a bun at the nape of her neck, and the red rimmed glasses she’s wearing not only frame her beautiful blue eyes perfectly, they turn me the hell on. She has this naughty librarian thing going on and it instantly has my mind going into overdrive. I picture her releasing her long blonde locks from where they’re being held captive, and imagine her shaking her head from side to side as her hair comes loose and cascades down her lean back. I shake my head and suppress a growl as I try to bring my mind out of the gutter and back into reality. What in the hell is wrong with me? Like always, she’s playing the starring role in one of my many fantasies. This shit has to stop.

When my eyes finally meet hers, I find her smiling. Did she just witness me checking her out? Thank fuck she can’t read minds. I’d be in deep shit if she could. Having her here is going to be harder than I thought.

Clearing my throat, I tug at the tie around my neck as I take a step closer. I’m suddenly feeling claustrophobic. “You don’t need to call me, Mr Williams, Han.”

“What did your other Secretaries call you?”

“Mr Williams,” I chuckle.

She looks up at me from beneath her glasses and I’m pretty sure my heart just skipped a beat. I could drown in those damn eyes of hers. “Well, Mr Williams it is then.”

“I’d feel stupid hearing you call me that.”

“Only in the office,” she replies with a smile. “Outside of here, you’ll still be Giant, my brother’s pesky friend, or just plain old Harry.”

“Your brother’s pesky friend, hey?” I say, pulling her into a headlock.

“Yes,” she laughs.

“Take that back, Shrimp.”

“Okay. Only mildly pesky … and only on occasions.”

We’re both laughing when I release her. She’s like no other woman I know. Things are so easy around her, just like breathing.

“So now we’ve got that established, where do you want me to start?” I smile when she eagerly rubs her hands together. I like her enthusiasm.

“Come, your desk is out here.” The thought of moving her desk into my office, flashes through my mind. That would be asking for trouble; trouble I don’t need.

Placing my hand on the small of her back, I lead her out to reception. Once she’s seated, I get her to log onto the computer. “I have a conference this afternoon, I’m going to need you to make sure all the files are in order. I’ll also need you to print out copies of my presentation, for them to follow.”

“That sounds like something I could do.”

“Click on the Jensen merger file,” I say, leaning forward and pointing to it on the screen. I inhale a large breath when her fruity, yet flowery, smell invades my senses.

“Did you just sniff me?”

“What? No.” Standing to full height, I clear my throat. “Why would I sniff you?” I deadpan. Jesus. I’m starting to look like some kind of sniffing freak. In my defence, she shouldn’t smell so good. I need to get my shit together if I’m going to come out the other end of this unscathed.

“Okay. No need to get so defensive. I thought I heard you sniff.”

“Nope. No sniffing. I definitely didn’t sniff you.” I’m such a damn liar. I so sniffed her.

“Okay. You didn’t sniff me,” she says, shrugging her shoulders. “Relax. Geez. It’s no big deal.”

“I’ll email you a list of jobs that need doing this morning. After lunch, you’ll need to set up the boardroom for my presentation.”

With that, I turn and head back into my office. I need distance.

 
It’s safer.

Blurb
“I don’t want to be a choice you have to make. I want to be your heart’s only option.”Wedding planner Skye Douglas makes a career out of bringing fairytales to life—even if she’s given up on her own happily ever after. Instead of dating, she devotes time to her nephew, a guitar prodigy who shares her love for 80s hair bands. When she encounters Caleb Lynch, the new guitar teacher, everything changes. Caleb’s passion for music—not to mention his Def Leppard T-shirt—makes Skye wonder if she might get her storybook ending after all.

Caleb would do anything for those he loves—including a fake engagement as a gift to his best friend’s dying mother. But after meeting Skye, he regrets the promise he made.

When Skye realizes she’s fallen for the groom, will she listen to her head . . . or her heart?

Excerpt
Caleb stands and offers me his hand.“Dance with me?”

I hate to dance . . . almost as much as I hate to date. But this is, without a doubt, the most romantic thing that’s ever happened to me.

“Okay.”

Caleb’s eyes never leave mine as he leads me to the dance floor. Pulling me close, he drifts his hands up my arms and along my shoulders until I’m flush against him. I encircle his waist with my arms as we sway to the music.

Then the most amazing thing happens.

Caleb leans his forehead against mine and starts to sing.

And I melt. Absolutely, positively melt right there in his arms.

Correction. This is the most romantic thing that’s ever happened to me.

Caleb’s deep blue eyes burn with emotion as he sings softly to me. I don’t care that we probably look ridiculous and cheesy. I don’t care that the waitress will most likely slash my tires. I don’t care that he’s singing slightly off key. I don’t even care that my best friend is going to scream bloody murder when I tell her about this moment.

I don’t care about any of it, because I’m here.

With him.

It’s exciting.

It’s terrifying.

Suddenly too overwhelmed with everything, I close my eyes.

“Please look at me,” he whispers, and because I’m completely under his spell, I obey.

“Caleb, I . . .” my voice drifts off.

Everything’s just too intense. It’s too much. And I don’t know what to say.

“You feel it, too?”

The insecure girl in me wants to ask what he means, but the woman in me knows. Of course I feel it, and I have no idea how to answer him. I decide to go with the truth.

“I do.”

Fugly Review

Fugly by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

4-5hearts

Heart Rating 4.5 out of 5!!

This was such a different plot and I couldn’t get enough of it!

Ok so here’s how it starts…

Lily is a driven, determined, sweet young woman who is happy with who she is. She is at peace with the stares, the comments and the horrified looks on people’s faces when they realise that she’s not what they’d pictured. She’s ugly. But being ugly isn’t gonna stop her from going for her dream job – oh no.

Max is successful, handsome, wealthy and has an interview to do. On paper, the person is over-qualified but he stops dead in his tracks when Lily Snow walks in. She isn’t qualified anymore. Not one bit.

Well, not for the original post anyhow. After Lily is outraged and upset that she didn’t get her dream job because she isn’t “pretty” enough, she is taken aback by the latest opportunity Max offers. And it is nothing you would have ever have guessed…

I really enjoy Mimi’s books and so when I read the start of Fugly it had my heckles up. I thought “how dare he be such an a**hole!” and wondered how Mimi would turn this round and make me love Max’s character.

This book has lots of twists and turns and I was so hooked that I finished it in one sitting. Lily is admirable with how she views herself and it made me realise that “beauty” is just a concept. And people’s concepts and opinions of concepts change. Sort of like my concept of time hahaha.

The end of the book leads to book 2, which I cannot wait to read. But it’s not the kind of novel that you will hate because of the ending. If that makes sense. I thought this was such a different, clever story-line that I had to give it 4.5, because it is nothing like I’ve ever read before.

The only thing I would have loved more of was the description of Lily’s face (we do get a snippet), but it certainly does not take away from the story overall.

Dreamers, this awesome book is FREE right now – so go grab your copy ASAP!! =)

Road-Tripped Review

Road-Tripped by Nicole Archer

4-5hearts

Heart Rating 4.5 out of 5!!

I haven’t laughed out loud that many times in a book in a long time! Callie is funny as hell and I love her spark, vulnerability and loyalty to her friends and sister. Walker is just as awesome. Swoon-worthy and full of southern sayings that made me gaffaw out loud.

Callie just wants to get on with her new life, new job and be left the hell alone by grade-A douchebags. Like Walker the office bike.

Walker slaps a smile on his face and walks into the job he hates every day and can’t take it anymore. As soon as the next project is complete – he’s out. In the meantime he has to convince Callie that she has the wrong impression of him…

After an unfortunate turn of events, Callie is roped in to seeing the project through with Walker. Which she wouldn’t mind, but it involves being with him 24hrs a day for the duration of a road trip that she can’t back out of.

I am new to Archer’s work and have to say, that I was pleasantly surprised and honestly felt so invested in these characters that I cried, laughed and hoped with them. And laughed at them a little too haha.

The book also has a soundtrack – which I thought was awesome! AND if you buy the ebook (I had the ebook vers.) then you can CLICK on the song at the start of each chapter – How well thought out is that!

Not only did I love the main characters, there was a real sense of love with the secondary characters too, even though we didn’t see a lot of them, they were so vital in the understanding of the entire storyline that I thought it was so well thought out.

Archer’s quirkiness and emotional pulls at my heartstrings have made me a new stalker of her work.

I guarantee that you won’t be disappointed in this funny, steamy, HEA romance.

First Kiss Review!!

First Kiss – Ann Marie Frohoff

             4hearts
Heart Rating – 4 out of 5!!

This book is the first in the Heavy Influence series. You can catch the prequel Skid Out in my earlier reviews on here!

I really enjoyed this book, even though it isn’t something that I’d normally go for. The dual POV is something I really enjoyed because I could look into the character’s thoughts and feelings directly.

Frohoff highlights so many concerns, obstacles and issues that teenagers have to deal with. It wasn’t that long ago that I was a teenager myself and having to make decisions around peer pressure, true friends and the boy I loved (and still do 😉 ).

There were points in the book that I could 100% relate to personally. Even when I couldn’t personally relate, Frohoff’s emotive descriptions drew me right into the way Jake and Alyssa felt at that time.

Alyssa for me, is a typical teenage girl who wants so much more from her adult life – but wants to have all the experience of a high school girl too. She just doesn’t want the negativity around her relationship with Jake.

The author really made it apparent that although Alyssa is sometimes a little immature, she also has such depth that makes me look forward to the next books when she is older and less interested in the high school experience.

Jake faces so many issues in this book and I loved how the author tackled these issues. Jake tries so hard to follow his heart and do what he feels is right – but I felt the frustration he had when things didn’t work out the way he’d hoped.

firstkisscover
I won’t mention the issues faced within this book – cause y’know, spoilers haha.
I will say that I felt that this installment of the Heavy Influence series was really nicely written and I really loved Jake and how he tries so hard to make everything in his life balance out. I also liked Alyssa’s strength, but somehow I couldn’t let her relationships with others in the book slide.

There is no cheating in this book though!

As I said, this isn’t normally the type of book that I’d go for but the blurb sucked me in and I actually really enjoyed the story as a whole. I look forward to reading the other instalments to see how things pan out for these two beautifully disjointed couple, and keep my fingers crossed that the right time happens for them both.

synopsis

From New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams comes a powerhouse romantic suspense that will have you questioning your morals and second guessing your view on love.

I live in a world few know exist. I’ve trained for this. I know what to say, what to do, and how to act. I’ve perfected the lethal calm required for this life.

Now it’s time to buy my first girl. But all it takes is one look at the brave girl who starts singing mid-auction for that calm to slip.

Briar Chapman is going to be the death of me, and I don’t care. I’ll take every day with her until that death comes, and I’ll welcome it when it does.

On the outside, Lucas Holt is what nightmares are made of. A man cloaked in darkness, with sin-filled eyes and an enticing grin. A devil so devastatingly beautiful and cruel that his very presence instills fear.

But beneath his terrifying, ever-calm exterior is an affectionate man haunted by a past that refuses to stay buried. And Lucas looks at me as though he’s finally found the only person who can make it all go away.

We’re a battle of the brightest day and the darkest night—and I want to lie in the wake of our war.

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband, daughter, and fur babies. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm … or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.

Jax – Review

Jax – J.L Perry

5hearts

Heart Rating – 5 out of 5!!

The name Jax means something special to me, so from the word go I was intrigued by the blurb.

This is definitely one of my favourite books all year.

Jax has never fit in. Unless it was with his best friend Candice. His family think he is a disgrace, no matter what he does. But Candice is always there. The beautiful best friend he loves more than anything. And has done from day one.

Candice has always loved her best friend Jax and has been in love with him from the moment they struck up a conversation. She can never tell him though. He would never commit for her. Would he?

After a long platonic period in their friendship, both give in to wanting more. Elation is the only word for Jax’s emotions. Until he runs. Candice is crushed. Heartbroken.

Until one day, fate and a good deed done by Jax brings the two together again. Can they make it work this time? Will Jax or Candice ever be brave enough to say those three little words that mean so much?

Jax Ebook Cover.jpg

I started this book thinking that I wouldn’t find Jax very relatable. His family are awful and I have never experienced that. It takes a lot for an author to get me on board with disliking a character’s family because it is really difficult for me to picture. That is until JL Perry immersed me in to Jax’s world.

This novel is written in dual POV but mainly from Jax’s perspective. Which is so amazing. This isn’t your typical “guy won’t commit for anyone” story. There are feelings and reasons behind Jax’s decisions – he isn’t a typical douche.

I fell in love with Jax’s character almost immediately because of JL’s writing style. I had never read any of her books before, so I wasn’t prepared for the flawless content.

Candice was such a beautiful girl/woman and I empathised, cried and took tantrums with her throughout. Her heart of gold and love for Jax (among a couple of other things you’ll have to read about for yourself) were what made me love Candice so much.

There are so many twists and turns in this novel that you are never bored or skim-reading until the next interesting part. The main characters are so plentiful that you feel you aren’t just in the story between Candice and Jax, but their entire lives. It isn’t just about the time that they are interacting with each other and the background characters are just as big and loveable as the main ones.

Jax, Candice and co will forever be one of my favourite groups of characters. And once you read the book – you will understand why I have said that the writing style is FLAWLESS!!

This book is out today guys so please grab it! And support JL Perry and her amazing work.

And JL Perry is such a sweetheart too – I love genuine people!
