Idolizing In: The Royals Series, Book 1 | #BookReview @TeriWilsonauthr

"Royally Roma" [The Royals Series, Book 1] by Teri Wilson

Author's Book Description : In this charming, modern retelling of the classic Audrey Hepburn film Roman Holiday, a royal prince tries to escape his hectic and rigid life and ends up leading a young graduate student on a chase through the Eternal City.

Julia Costa is too busy trying to complete her PhD while also holding down a full-time job as a private tour guide in Rome to keep up with celebrity gossip. So when she crosses paths with a real, actual prince, she mistakes him for a client and takes him on a daylong tour of the city.

Intrigued by the idea of spending time with someone who obviously has no idea who he is, and delighted at the prospect of a day free of royal obligations, Niccolo La Torre, Crown Prince of Lazaretto, acts on impulse and assumes the role of Julia’s client. He swears to himself that he’ll return to his royal duties after only half a day…but he’s having the time of his life.

Until Julia presents him with the bill. Since he snuck out of the hotel without so much as a dime, he tries to escape, only to discover that she won’t let him out of her sight until he can pay her back. She’s determined to get her money…and perhaps more from the handsome stranger she’s fallen for.

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! After feeling beaten down by his own royal responsibilities, Niccolo (Nico/Mano) the heir to the Lazaretto throne decides on escaping his gilded cage by pretending to be someone else when he meets Julia. Julia is an American tour guide living in Rome, who is running from her own notorious past and is in the midst of pulling her life together when she meets Niccolo. Their attraction is instantaneous and is blooming into something more by the minute. Yet when Niccolo’s “quick getaway” turns into something a whole lot more and into a bigger fiasco then he originally planned, will he still be able to go back to his “real” life after all is said and done; or will he be able to change his life for the better with the help of Julia by his side?

Okay truth time … this novel is said to be a modern retelling of the classic Audrey Hepburn film ‘Roman Holiday,’ and though I have heard of it I have never watched it so I really didn’t know what it was about. Yet I can definitely say I was not disappointed in the least as I was hooked by Chapter 2. It was the banter between Niccolo and Julia that reeled me in, especially how it seemed that Julia could get to the heart of any situation which made her be able to handle and understand Niccolo better than most people. Together they seemed to light up each page as you learned about their unusual meetup and budding romance. Though both were resistant to the possibility of something more between them because of the reality of their lives it seemed like fate wanted them together no matter what. It was very charming to see them both succumb to fate.

I recommend this novel 100% to anyone looking for a quirky contemporary new adult romance! My only regrets, though they didn’t tarnish my love for this novel, was that given today’s technology I kept thinking that Niccolo’s security would find him because of his cell phone AND I wish the ending wasn’t so abrupt. And yet I still HIGHLY recommend it! 😊

Disappointmentville: Her Stepbrothers are Werewolves by Trinity Blacio | #BookReview @trinityblacio

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Kindle Edition - File Size: 326 KB | Expected Release Date: September 1, 2016 | Publisher: Riverdale Avenue Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"Her Stepbrothers are Werewolves" [Stepbrothers Series, Book 7] by Trinity Blacio

Author's Book Description : Lucy Ballard’s life sucked. First her father was killed in a boating accident, then some nut job she thought would be her husband, took something from her that left a hole in her heart the size of a watermelon. She was convinced that no man would want her now –she wasn’t whole. The one thing she had dreamed of all her life–to have a big family–was now physically impossible.

Duke and Nolan Masters were brothers, even though Duke was now the alpha of their pack. They shared everything else, including women. So it was no surprise that their mate would be one and the same, but they never imagined it would to be their new stepsister, Lucy Ballard. Not to mention the fact that she can’t’ have children, and the reaction of the pack to this would bring serious trouble.

Could the three of them come together? Would the pack accept her as their new alpha bitch even though she was damaged? Duke and Nolan were about to make sure of it, because otherwise there would be only one choice–to step down as alpha and move away from everything they knew.

My Book Review : 2 out of 5 stars. Lucy's life wasn't easy yet she thought she had it well and truly planned out. That is until her mother arrives with a new husband, which is a werewolf, and learns that her new stepbrothers are her mates. Everything in her life gets turned upside down, but as long as her dream life still comes true .... that's all that matters .... right?

I think I had too high of hopes for this novel, since even though it had all of Ms. Blacio's usual novel selling points this novel didn't hook me as I'd have liked it too. Everything was just okay. Then I found there were quite a few storylines that were never completed so you’re left hanging a bit.

I only recommend this novel to those who are fans of Ms. Blacio and hope you'll enjoy it more than I did.

"Carrying the King's Pride" [Kingdoms & Crowns Series, Book 1] by Jennifer Hayward

Author's Book Description : A marriage for the monarch

One last New York night with Sofia Ramirez is all Prince Nikandros Constantinides allowed himself before returning to Akathinia, after a dreadful accident took his brother's life. But before the royal rebel is crowned, Nik discovers that he didn't leave Sofia behind alone!

In a baby's heartbeat, Nik turns Sofia's world upside down and whisks her away to his Mediterranean kingdom. Dissolving a politically perfect engagement is not what Nik—or his country—had in mind, but this proud prince will do whatever it takes to legitimize his new rule…with a wife and child!

My Book Review : 2 out of 5 stars. On the night that Sofia decides to call it quits with Nik (Nikandros) .... she ends up pregnant and Nik's older brother dies, which in turn makes him next-in-line to become King. Then because of his father's health, he seems to become King (a role he was never supposed to have) over night. Though when he learns of Sofia's pregnancy, it feels as though life goes from bad to worse. Sofia wants/needs trust and love in her life for their relationship to work .... will Nik be able to give that to her?

I wish I could've liked this novel more, but I just couldn't. I struggled with it from the beginning, mostly because Sofia and Nik's relationship felt so forced. Then add in Nik's condescending ways and I can say for 75% of this novel I did not like the man. In addition, the plot's flow/mojo just was off or didn't feel right and lead me to believe that something else (like Nik being setup in a compromising way) was going to take place right up until the end and that never happened. 😕

Overall, this one wasn't for me and I don't feel comfortable recommending it. However, please check it out for yourself as it could be the book for you.

Made the Grade: A Daddy for Baby Zoe? by Fiona Lowe | #BookReview @FionaLowe

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Paperback - Pages: 256; Kindle Edition - File Size: 511 KB | Expected Release Date: January 1, 2016 | Publisher: Harlequin : Medical Romances | Obtained: NetGalley

"A Daddy for Baby Zoe?" by Fiona Lowe

Author's Book Description : A baby to bind them

Weeks away from giving birth, Dr. Meredith Dennison finds herself with no husband and few funds. Retreating to Shearwater Island, she just wants to hide from the world…until she meets her gorgeous, caring neighbor, multimillionaire Raf Camilleri.

Meredith is the last woman Raf should fall for. He's no more ready for her and newborn baby Zoe than Meredith is for him! But they so need his support, and their tender pull makes it impossible for Raf to stay away…

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Meredith (M) thought she had everything planned out and after years of waiting for her husband, to be ready she is now pregnant and about to be a mother. Yet, life isn’t as easy as she wished especially when married to an extreme adventure-seeker. Then when she gets the unexpected news that her husband died in an avalanche while on Australia’s Mount Feathertop, to say she was shocked would be an understatement. Therefore, she retreats to her and her husband’s vacation home to try to work through her grief and it is there that she meets Rafael (Raf) her neighbor who is still struggling through he own personal turmoil. Over the course of them getting to know and help one another, Meredith gives birth to Zoe who changes both Raf and Meredith’s lives for the better. Will Zoe be able to turn them into a family too?

Wow. This novel is more realistic then I was hoping for, yet it worked. As it was very believable. While I am happy with Meredith’s personal standards and how much she truly loved her husband, in the same breath it annoyed be to no end because of how great a guy Raf was and how she kept on putting him at a distance. Especially after you hear about Raf’s backstory I was surprised by how obtuse Meredith seemed by her actions and why Raf clung onto their relationship more/faster than she expected. It was because of how Meredith handles everything that it made it hard for me to enjoy this novel as much as I’d have liked. On the flip side though, it was because of Meredith’s actions that this novel feels more real and believable.

I recommend this to those looking for believable yet fictional contemporary “new parenthood” romance.

She stared at him, gobsmacked. 'You're not seriously going to read out a thousand names?'
His finger paused on the page and he looked up with a slight frown on his face. 'You've got nine hours to come up with a name that both suits possum here and that you love or else she'll be named for you.'
'Put that way, I see your point.'

Made the Grade: The Wedding Charade by Melissa McClone | #BookReview @melissamcclone

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Kindle Edition - File Size: 1566 KB | Expected Release Date: May 2, 2016 | Publisher: Self-Published | Obtained: Melissa McClone

"The Wedding Charade" [Four Weddings and a Fiasco World Series] by Melissa McClone

Author's Book Description : Growing up in her twin sister's shadow, Claire O'Ryan has made a life for herself away from family and the Hollywood limelight. But when her sister's lies start spinning out of control and she finds herself in trouble, Claire and her former crush are forced to help out.

A-list actor Brady Simms enjoys playing a good part and pretending to be engaged to his childhood best friend, Claire, sounds like an interesting role. Planning a fake wedding happens all too easily. Acting like he's madly in love with the quiet, sweet librarian feels all too right. And her kisses…all too perfect. Will a game of make-believe turn into a real-life happily ever after?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Longtime friends are thrown into an unexpected romantic relationship in hopes of helping someone else they both care about. While dealing with major close proximity after being apart for a long time they start to find that the person they want to be in a relationship with is with each other. But will their loved ones, rabid fans, and life simply keep them apart for good or will their true wishes finally come true?

Though I’ll freely admit that Ms. McClone’s book description intrigued me into reading this novella, it didn’t take me long to realize that because of some of the characters in this novella I really hesitated in liking this one or not. I can say right off the bat that I HATE/LOATH Claire’s twin sister, Cate, and their parents. I get the reasons that their parents sided with Cate as they were not allowing Claire to tell them her side of the story but how they treated Claire and then their quick reversal after they learned the truth REALLY irked me. THEN there is the phenomenon that is Claire’s twin sister Cate, who all I can really say is crazy. Claire might have been a bit crazy too to agree to everything she did for Cate. However, I completely understand her love for Brady. Though Brady was a bit dim-witted because he thought Cate did everything “out of the goodness of her heart,” he truly was the perfect man for Claire. The ONLY reason I stuck through this whole novella was because of Claire and Brady’s relationship, along with Claire’s silly cat Thor and their animated bodyguards.

Though I struggled through this novella, I would STILL recommend it to those looking for a new adventure from the ‘Four Weddings and a Fiasco’ World and/or looking for a quirky contemporary romance.

Feasted On: Marriage Mart Mayhem Series, Book 7 | #BookReview @CallieHutton

"The Earl's Return" [Marriage Mart Mayhem Series, Book 7] by Callie Hutton

Author's Book Description : London, 1819. Four years ago, Darius, the Earl of Redgrave fled London two weeks before his wedding to Lady Mary’s sister and married another woman. Now a widower, he has returned to seek a new wife.

One woman catches his eye...

At first, Lady Mary doesn’t recognize the handsome lord as the cad who ran out on her sister. After giving him the cut direct in a London ballroom, she finds herself running into him everywhere she goes, and fighting a forbidden attraction. Not only has Mary sworn off men, Redgrave is so very wrong for her. But she cannot stop thinking of his kisses. Redgrave means to stay away from Mary but it is impossible. Passion between two people who can never be together is a dangerous game.

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! Four years ago, Redgrave (Darius) ran out on his fiancée to elope with a woman he was coerced into marrying. Now after his wife has passed away Redgrave is back in London so he can find a new wife, someone who he'll be able to have a meaningful relationship with, which he wasn't able to get in his first marriage. What Redgrave didn't plan for was falling for the younger sister of his ex-fiancée. Yet, could things finally be working out for Redgrave or will others from his past find a way to set him up for failure again...

An enticing novel from beginning to end, this historical romance keeps you on your toes as you fall in love with Redgrave and his budding relationship to Mary. They are one of those couples who seem to work from the get go, then add in their intense attraction to each other and you have a compelling read I didn't want to put down.

I recommend this novel to those looking for a unique historical romance.

"The Rancher's Surprise Triplets" [Lone Star Cowboy League: Multiple Blessings Series, Book 1] by Linda Ford

Author's Book Description : Three Little Matchmakers

Rancher Bo Stillwater has no plans of becoming a husband or a father…but he can't turn away from the three babies he finds at the county fair. After leaving the abandoned triplets in the care of the doctor's daughter, Louisa Clark, his duty should be done. So why can't he seem to stay away from the babies and their pretty caregiver?

Watching the town's most eligible bachelor with the little trio reawakens Louisa's unmet dreams. She's found satisfaction in spinsterhood and caring for others, convinced that motherhood passed her by. Do she and Bo only work so well together for the children's sakes…or could they both find courage to make this sweet temporary arrangement something truly lasting?

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. A man (Bo) finds abandoned 9-month-old triplets at a fair and takes them to the doctor to get healthy. The doctor's daughter (Louisa) looks after them while they get well again. During the babies recovery Bo and Louisa form a sweet relationship, but is what they have strong enough to overcome their own fears about themselves?

I wish I could've liked this one more. While I liked this novel and series' setup, I had a hard time with the way the plot wrapped up and how some secondary story lines never completed. I mean, even though I liked that Bo and Louisa got together, I feel the ending just wrapped everything up way to nicely. Especially after all the fuss Louisa made about her life. Then there was the baby-twist that I wish was a more completed plotline. Yet, from what I looked up, it's going to be a theme throughout this series. I just wish I caught on to that “theme” sooner as it might not have bugged me as much as it does now if I had known about it earlier. 😕 😛

Even so, I was enamored with all the characters, which is why I’m having a difficult time with the plotline.

Nevertheless, it’s because of the characters, I still recommend this novel to those looking for a sweet Christian romance.

"His Temptation" [The HIS Collection, Book 4] by Amber Bardan

Author's Book Description : Dog walking was supposed to be Katie’s easy third job.

When she answered the ad, she had no idea she’d be working for Clay “The Grinch” Colson—recently retired baseball superstar. He’s every bit as intimidating as the scowl he’s famous for, and Katie believes the rumors she’s heard about how mean he is are true—until she sees him with his overgrown, crazy Boxer, Dixie.

Lucky Katie gets completely unexpected, front-row seats to a side of Clay the tabloids never captured. Every. Single. Morning. And the more she’s exposed to his gruff affection, the more she can’t help thinking there’s so much hiding behind that scowl… The more she wonders what she’d have to do to have him call her his good girl.

Every morning, the sexiest woman he’s ever seen comes to his house and calls him Daddy. Sure, she’s his dog walker, but that doesn’t mean she has the right to sashay into his world every morning, plant that saucy little gaze on him, and say, “Good morning, Daddy.”

Now that’s all he can think about—being her very dirty daddy.

*Daddy play. Completely Safe. Always a HEA*

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Throughout the past year that Katie has been working for the retired baseball superstar, Clay “The Grinch” Colson, she has admired him from afar. What she didn’t know until recently was that Clay was been admiring her too. When their feelings are brought out into the open they agree to a mutually beneficial affair and it seems to work out well … that is until reality and true feelings come into play. Will Katie have it in her to prove to Clay that what they have together could mean a whole lot more if only they give it a try or will past fears get in their way of a future together?

This is one erotic romance that surprised me with its heartwarming twist while entertained me the whole way through. If you are interested in reading about a budding romance between a young twenty-something who deals with more than one at her age should and an older hunky brooding retired baseball player who is finding out who he is now that his world has changed, than this is the book for you. Especially if you are not put off by the kink (non-taboo) play that brings Clay and Katie together. It was surprisingly sweet, yet it was the spicy “playtime” between them that was truly the best part of this novel.

I recommend it to those looking for a quick adventurous erotic romance.

-- On a side note --
I will say that Clay's secret was a surprising twist that I didn't see coming, even though Katie did. 🤔

"I made them for you."
With my precious almond flour.
"You made them especially for me?" He looks up from the tin, and his brow has a completely different kind of squint than usual. One that makes me fluttery.
I swallow. "Yes."
"Then I guess I'd better try them all." He takes one of each and lines them up in front of him.
"Well, aren't I a lucky man?" He glances up at me and winks.
Winks. My heart skips five beats. A grin bursts across my cheeks. ~ within Chapter 6

Made the Grade: Bite Harder by Jenika Snow

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 1210 KB | Release Date: February 9, 2017 | Publisher: Evernight Publishing | Obtained: Amazon

"Bite Harder" by Jenika Snow (Note: "Bite Harder" is another name for "All Bite, No Growl.")

Author's Book Description : Forget the foreplay. For the truly committed, it's all bite.

Willow has loved Devon and Case for as long as she can remember, but as lion shifters they will eventually find their mates. When she allows herself to be with her two lions after a drunken party, she fears she's ruined a lifelong friendship and flees before morning.

Devon and Case have been inseparable since they could walk, but they can't tell anyone that they are mates. The pride of shifters they belong to won't accept a same-sex mating. But it's not just their lives they have to worry about. They've also just realized they've become a triad with Willow--three shifters mated.

When a shocking revelation brings Willow's world crashing down, she knows she can't hide behind her fears any longer. Being with Case and Devon is the only thing that makes sense, and she doesn't care if it ends up ruining their friendship.

*Previously published as "All Bite, No Growl," this title has been re-edited. No new content has been added.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! Willow, Devin, and Case are all lion shifters who’ve been best friends ever since they were little. However, now that they just finished their senior year of high school everything is changing around them. They’ve always been close but over the past year Devin and Chase have found that they’re mates with one another and even though Willow has feelings for them, which they reciprocate, they are all scared about messing up their relationships. Will fate change for the better for them all or will their chances be taking away from them all by their closed-minded shifter community?

This paranormal ménage romance surprised me with its unexpected twists while keeping my attention because of its sweet main characters. Even though it is a quick read, I was given enough background information that I felt really entertained, and it would be great still if I could read more about them.

I found the relationship that Willow, Devin, and Case was really sweet yet intense in the way that they protected one another. I was really charmed because of their intensity as it helped me want to root for them no matter what got thrown their way. Though they weren’t sure what they all truly meant to one another for most of their novella it was how they care for each other that made me smile and what I appreciated the most. In addition, the epilogue wrapped up everything nicely too.

I recommend this to those who are looking for an intense paranormal ménage romance to read and don’t mind that the characters are in the “New Adult” era of their lives.
