Disappointmentville: Playing To Win by Shelley Munro

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Kindle Edition - File Size: 402 KB | Release Date: January 17, 2008 | Publisher: Cerridwen Press | Obtained: NetGalley

"Playing To Win" by Shelley Munro

Author's Book Description : Professional rugby player, Lane Gerrard is used to women throwing themselves at him, but a scurrilous tabloid article naming him as father of a child sends his temper soaring. The woman he confronts doesn’t fit the blackmailer profile. Kate Alexander is attractive with an enchanting innocence, enticing. A total stranger. Her feistiness draws his unwilling admiration, but the child...he is the image of Lane.

Kate can’t deny her son’s similarity to the sexy man at her door but no way will she hand him over without a fight. Kate doesn’t possess money but she can shower her son with love. With public speculation rife, Kate reluctantly works with Lane to discover the truth. They grow closer as distrust slowly turns to mutual fascination, but the tabloid articles bring out a stalker. Mild pranks escalate into danger, and suddenly Lane realizes Kate is a woman he could love. With Kate and her son, he could have a family. Now, with his heart on the line, this is one game he’s playing to win...

My Book Review : 2 out of 5 stars. This is an intriguing suspenseful romance. It's about a huge secret--finding out you had a child with a woman you don't know or don't remember--and trying to figure out how to deal with the consequences and rewards of learning this unsuspected news. Yet, once the "cat is out of the bag" the mother (Kate) finds that having her life on display in the tabloids starts bringing in some scary pranks that put her and her son's lives on the line. Will they be able to keep everyone safe while finding out the truth about what really happened?

This is a captivating novel in the way that no matter how much it dragged on for me I was interested in how it would end and what would happen between Kate, Lane, & their son. Together Kate & Lane just worked, especially when everything seemed to be going against them.

If I didn't feel like I had to push through this novel because of it dragging for me, then I would have given this a better rating. As I enjoyed the main characters & their friends, while the "enemy" always seemed to change for me. I kept trying to guess who the person doing the "pranks" was and--even though I wasn't completely surprised about who it was--I was shocked by the extremes she went through.

Nevertheless, I will admit not to enjoying how the reveal of Kate's son's paternity played out. For me ... if Lane didn't go from finding out (at the end of the novel) the real truth of things, then (in a way) acting like he was saying "oh yeah, now I remember and I did really like/love her," then running away from Kate, and then the following day try to make amends (in a big way) with no real explanation ... I would have also liked it better. =0/

Therefore, I would only recommend this to those who are big fans of Ms. Munro.

Book Teaser(s) :
"Jamie," she called as she tugged off her coat.
Jamie appeared at the top of the stairs. "What?"
"We need to talk," she said. "I want you to feed Ratty and clean his cage then come downstairs to the kitchen." She sighed when her son didn't acknowledge her words but merely turned and stomped back to his room. Nicole should have had a girl, she thought. Then she remembered her own preteen and teenage years and a feeble laugh escaped. "Fool," she muttered. She'd still have problems, just a different set. ~ within Chapter 7
He smiled. "We're here to see Maxine."
The nurse beamed in return, showing a cute set of dimples. "Wait in here," she said, directing them into a lounge full of oak antiques. "I'll go find Maxine for you."
Lane heard a distinct snort of disgust from Kate, the moment the nurse left. "What?" he asked.
"You know very well what I'm thinking. Did you see the extra wiggle of her hips? Your smile needs a license."
Interesting. Kate jealous? "You mean like licensed to kill?"
Kate groaned theatrically. "Please." ~ within Chapter 12

Idolizing In: The Summer I Found You by Jolene Perry

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Hardcover - Pages: 256; Kindle Edition - File Size: 484 KB | Expected Release Date: March 4, 2014 | Publisher: Albert Whitman & Company | Obtained: NetGalley

"The Summer I Found You" by Jolene Perry

My Book Summary : A little over a year ago, Kate found out that she was a Type 1 Diabetic and that her life was changing forever.

About three months ago, Aiden lost his arm and a friend/co-worker of his while stationed in Afghanistan and now is trying to find out what to do with his life now that it has been drastically changed ... forever.

Yet neither are willing or wanting to deal with what forever even means to them. Therefore, when they meet, and find an immediate connection between them, they unintentionally use each other as a way to distract themselves from their own problems.

As their "friendship" grows, can they help each other overcome their fears about what their lives will be like now...

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! Two people meet and help each other during difficult times in their lives, while unintentionally falling for one another.

Kind of a NC-17 type of YA novel or rather somewhere in between YA and NA genres, I found this novel to be fun, intense, touching, and romantic! Kate and Aiden's relationship isn't one that either expected or wanted right away but it turns into a relationship that both are hard pressed to giving up, no matter what anyone thinks. With their "disabilities," they are able to sympathize with each other and in turn end up helping each other in more ways then one! Together I could not get enough of them, from their rapid attraction to Kate's random cute statements to Aiden's military ways I was drawn in to them as a couple from the beginning. Loved this novel and its engaging characters!!

I recommend it to anyone who likes NC-17 type of contemporary romantic YA novel!

- On a side note -
Even though I loved this novel, I thought the title was a little misleading as they don't meet during the summer time, they actually meet a few months before Kate's finished with her senior of High School.

"You need my car?" he asks.
"Yeah. You can, uh, take mine today if you want." I love my car. Saved up since I was thirteen, bought it when I turned sixteen, and spent time on the thing almost every day until I left for Afghanistan. It's a 1972 Chevelle Super Sport convertible. Grey with black racing stripes. The car is perfect. After years of scrounging through scrap yards and buffing out every fender, everything on my car is perfect.
He shifts in his seat. The words right at the edge of his mouth. I know it. Why don't you sell your car, Aiden? You can't drive a stick with one arm. Definitely when the arm missing is your right one.
Why couldn't I've lost the arm I don't know how to use? ~ within Chapter 2 - titled 'AIDEN CONNELLY'

Made the Grade: Safe in the Tycoon's Arms by Jennifer Faye

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Paperback - Pages: 256; Kindle Edition - File Size: 310 KB | Expected Release Date: March 1, 2014 | Publisher: Harlequin Romance | Obtained: Jennifer Faye

"Safe in the Tycoon's Arms" by Jennifer Faye

Author's Book Description : The man behind the headlines...

When billionaire Lucas Carrington returns to his New York mansion, he never expects to find beautiful stranger Kate Whitley making herself at home. Invited by his aunt to stay, he soon discovers she's a woman in need. She's raising funds for her sick daughter, so he agrees to let her stay—temporarily!

Kate may not belong in Lucas's high-society world, but she sees there is more to this tycoon than the headlines suggest. Yet with so much at stake, can she trust herself and her heart with New York's most sought-after bachelor?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars. Two people find themselves in unusual circumstances and in order to accomplish what needs to be done they'll need work together. While they work together, they open their lives and hearts to each other, learning that if they can get over their rough pasts and are willing to trust again that good things may come their way...

I really enjoyed Kate's determination to save her daughter at all costs. It was very sweet and touching! Plus, Kate and Lucas set each other, and this novel's pages, on fire with their passion.

My only wish is that I could have liked Lucas more so then I did. He was kind of written as an antihero, in a way, so it was hard to thoroughly appreciate him as a character. =0/

Overall, I do recommend this novel to anyone who likes contemporary romances, especially those with a bit of "girl power" in them!

“Hey, wait!”
Kate sighed and turned. She didn’t know what else they had to say to each other. And she didn’t have time to waste. “Surely you aren’t going to insist on searching my luggage, are you?”
“Are you always so feisty in the morning? Or are you just grumpy because you skipped your caffeine fix? I know that first cup does wonders for me. See, I’m smiling.” His lips bowed into a ridiculous grin.
She rolled her eyes and shook her head. She honestly didn’t know what to make of the man. His personal hygiene was impressive, but other than the kitchen his house was a disgrace. And last night he was crankier than an old bear, yet this morning he was smiling. He was one walking contradiction. ~ within Chapter 3

Made the Grade: Furry United Coalition (F.U.C.) Series, Book 3

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 409 KB | Release Date: August 10, 2012 | Publisher: Self-Published | Obtained: Amazon.com

"Croc and the Fox" [Furry United Coalition (F.U.C.) Series, Book 3] by Eve Langlais

Author's Book Description : Genre: Paranormal/Shapeshifter Romance

Warning: An ornery croc discovers he does have a pulse when a hot to trot fox decides to latch on, and never let go. Tongue in cheek humor, sizzling moments and a tiny, evil villain await. Muahahaha.

A career military man, Viktor lives for the next mission – and his collection of weapons — but a raid on an experimental lab makes him an unwilling protector, mostly because he can’t peel Renee off. A cold blooded croc, he never intended to settle down, but he didn’t count on a foxy lady warming his heart.

The world outside the laboratory was a big scary place. Unsure of how to deal with it, Renee latches onto the biggest, baddest, and sexiest, warrior around. Sharp toothed and with ice in his veins, Viktor’s violent side should have sent her running, but instead, she finds the courage to face her fears –and tame the lizard.

When danger comes knocking, with the intention of turning her lizard into a high priced fashion accessory, will Renee embrace her foxy side and show a croc she’s got what it takes to be his mate?

And will they finally vanquish the evil known as mastermind?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! An old croc learns knew tricks while opening up his heart to love and an "innocent" red fox. Together Viktor & Renee (Project, Project M87, Monique) are an adorable duo! From how they deal with their apparent, differences and the "mastermind" to their budding connection you cannot help but want to root for them.

This novel puts a great new twist on the F.U.C. Series, especially with the reveal of the "Mastermind!" I can't wait to see where this series will go next!!

I recommend this series and novel to those who enjoy paranormal erotic comedic romances!!

Book Teaser(s) :
“Where are we going?”
“Away from here.”
“Are you taking me to the labs?”
“Of course not.”
“Locking me in solitary?”
His jaw tightened. “No one will be locking you up, ever again.” Well, unless she broke the law, but he’d let someone else explain that to her when – and if – they ever released her to the world at large.
“So where are we going then?”
“Like I said, away from here.”
“But I don’t want to leave.”
“Too bad. I say you have to. And since I’m bigger than you, what I say goes.” A childish retort for her juvenile arguing.
“This is kidnapping.”
“Rescue,” he corrected.
“You can’t do this.”
“I can and am.” He jogged up the several flights of stairs, ignoring the strange looks he got from the other FUC operatives wandering the place, photographing and boxing anything they found of interest. He also ignored the former prisoner’s demands to put her down. To go away. And to do something anatomically impossible with himself.
“Where did you learn such language?” he finally asked, reaching the top level. The vulgarity of her speech, especially coming from such a delicate looking cutie, surprised him.
“The guards. The doctors. The others in the cells with me. I even know some of them in Spanish. Would you like to hear them?” she replied sweetly.
“Sure, my boys could stand to learn some new ones. Feel free to shout as many as you like because we’re going outside now.”
“No!” she yelled. Viktor stumbled as she buried her face in his lower back and wrapped her arms around his middle, tighter than the anaconda he dated a few years back.
“Can’t breathe,” he joked.
Her grip didn’t loosen in the slightest. Faced with a dilemma, Viktor didn’t immediately exit the building. If this were a soldier, or agent, acting like a great big wuss bag, he would have ignored the terror and thrown them out to meet the source. But, his mystery lady was a victim. Somehow he doubted Kloe, or his coworkers, would approve of him just tossing her into the sunshine given her fear. And, a teensy tiny part of him, didn’t want to scare her further. A tiny part. ~ within Chapter 2
“Hey, red. Nice to see you again.”
Grinning, Renee waved back.
“Mary said you had news,” Viktor stated.
“I do. And I don’t. Also known as good and bad.”
Renee’s fingers tightened around his.
“What’s the bad news?” he asked.
“I couldn’t find a name for her.”
“I have one. Renee. Isn’t it pretty? Viktor gave it to me. The name that is. Apparently, I’m too young for him to teach me about sex.” Beaming, she didn’t understand why her announcement made him bang his head on the wall.
Jessie choked and whirled away from them, shoulders hunched and shaking.
“Is she alright?” Renee whispered. In the cells, when someone shook, it usually meant something bad was about to happen. Or gross. It would suck to lose her clean state to projectile vomit, or worse.
“She is fine for the moment, but I can’t vouch for her state later,” he growled. ~ within Chapter 6

Author's Book Description :
    When I wake up in a dark, unfamiliar room, I have no idea what's waiting for me in the shadows. My imagination conjures up demons of the worst kind.

    Reality is much worse:

    A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning.

    I am presented with a vile contract and asked to sign. It outlines the terms of my servitude. The only information I have about my captor are the two small letters inked at the bottom:


    Armed with only my memories, I must do everything I can to avoid becoming ensnared in his twisted mind games. But in the end, it all comes down to one choice:

    Resist and die.

    Or submit, and sign my life away.

** Be sure to add it to your TBR pile on Goodreads! **

Book Excerpt :

Oh God. It’s him. There’s no mistaking that rich, masculine treble.
What’s he doing down here?
“M-Mr. Stonehart,” I stutter, turning. I curse my inability to hide my surprise. He totally caught me off-guard. I have to look up to meet his eyes. Then up some more.
The face that I find is so striking it should belong to a Greek god.
He’s younger than I expected. Late thirties, maybe early forties.
That means he started his company when he was younger than me!
Dark scruff lines his angular cheeks. His jet-black hair is styled in long, natural waves. My fingers itch to run through it.
Totally inappropriate.
He has a prominent nose that might be too big on a less imposing man, but on him, it’s perfect.
In short, he’s a package of the purest masculinity I’ve ever seen.
And then there are his eyes. Oh my God. His eyes. They pierce into me like honing missiles. They are the deepest black I have ever seen. They would be frightening if they weren’t so beautiful. When the light reflects a certain way, you catch a glimpse of the purple underneath.
They are like midnight sapphires. His eyes reveal a cunning intellect. Those eyes do not miss a thing.
Add all that to his towering height, his wide shoulders, his confident-yet-at-ease posture... and Stonehart cuts an intimidating figure.
My gaze darts to his left hand before I can stop it. No ring. He’s unmarried.
He looks down at me, expectantly. His eyes narrow ever so slightly, and I feel like I’m being dissected, measured up, and tucked away in some small corner of his brain. I imagine this is what a gemstone feels like under the magnifying class of the most critical appraiser.
Stonehart clears his throat. I come to with a start, realizing I haven’t said anything in ages. I open my mouth, but the capacity for speech seems like a foreign concept to my brain. “I—”
Somebody bumps into me from behind. I stagger forward. I’m not used to these shoes, so my heel steps the wrong way. My ankle twists under me, and I start to fall.
I don’t fall far. The hand still on my elbow tightens, and Stonehart pulls me into him.
I plaster myself onto the solid steel wall the man has for a body. I catch a scent of his cologne. It’s a deep, musky smell with a hint of charred spruce that is all male. It scrambles my thoughts even more.
“Sorry!” a rushed voice calls out. From the corner of my eye, I see the postman giving a hurried, apologetic wave.
Although the sequence lasts less than a second, it feels like an eternity. Pressed up against him like that, I don’t want to move. I know that I couldn’t have made a worse first impression.
Stonehart eases me off him with a firm yet gentle grip. Our eyes meet. I flush the most vibrant red. His fingers graze my forehead as he brushes a lock of hair out of my face.
Any tenderness I may have imagined vanishes when Stonehart takes out his cell. He long dials a key and growls an order. “Steven. See the delivery boy leaving right now? Have his building pass revoked.”
I gape. Stonehart keeps speaking. “Wait. I thought of one better. Bar his company from accessing the building.” There’s a pause. “For how long? Indefinitely. FedEx can talk to me when they have an improved employee selection program in place.”
The phone call gives me just enough time to compose myself. My heart’s still beating out of my chest. But nobody has to know that.
I speak without thinking. “You’re going to restrict the entire company from serving this building because of that?”
Stonehart humors me with an answer. “A company’s employees are its most important asset. Their behavior reflects the organization as a whole. If FedEx decided that clown is good enough for them, it tells me they’re sloppy. I do not do business with sloppy organizations.”
“What about the other tenants in the building?” I ask. “Won’t that piss them off?”
When I hear myself and realize how improper my question is, my cheeks flame red again.
Stonehart’s eyes darken, as if he cannot believe I asked that question. I open my mouth to apologize for my imprudence, hating the way my professional skills have evaporated into thin air. I’m cut off by a short, barked laugh.
“Miss Ryder.” He sounds amused. “I believe that is the most direct and honest question anybody has dared ask me in weeks.” He takes my elbow again and leads me to the elevators. I have to take two quick steps to match one of his long strides.
“Yes,” he continues. “They will be ‘pissed off.’ But the perk of owning a building—” he hits the elevator call button, “—is that you get to make executive decisions.” He gives me an unreadable glance as the doors open. “That is, at the risk of being questioned by inexperienced interns.”
If that isn’t a loaded remark, I don’t know what is. I flush scarlet red for the third time since I’ve met him. I’ve never had a man throw me so off balance.
The elevator is packed, for which I’m infinitely thankful. The trip up will give me some time to properly compose myself.
Gratitude turns to panic when the crowd files out, meek as mice, when Stonehart steps in. None of the people waiting in the lobby follow us.
The doors close. I’m alone in here with him. My heart’s beating as fast as a hummingbird’s wings.
He catches me staring. “Impressed?” he asks.
“They know you,” I manage.
His dark eyes flash with amusement. “Astute.”

Feasted On: Brightside Series, Book 1

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Kindle Edition - File Size: 1119 KB | Expected Release Date: February 10, 2014 | Publisher: Entangled Publishing : Embrace | Obtained: Entangled Publishing

"In Bloom" [Brightside Series, Book 1] by Katie Delahanty

Author's Book Description : My name is Olivia Bloom and I. Am. Free.

I left for LA with everything I owned piled into my old Volkswagen and dreams of becoming a costume designer. Little did I know I’d wind up designing for a lingerie company—yeah, not sure how I landed this gig—and taken under the wing of two young Hollywood insiders. The fashion shows and parties were great, but life really got exciting when the seriously hottest lead singer of my favorite band started to fall for me.

How does someone like me, an ordinary girl from Pittsburgh, wind up in the arms of the world’s sexiest rock star—surrounded by celebrities, fashion, and music—and not be eaten alive? Berkeley is everything I've ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, but the paparazzi, the tabloids, the rumors, it's all getting a bit too crazy. My life has become every girl’s dream come true, if only I don’t blink and lose it all...

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! An entertaining and enthralling love story! It's about a girl who's life turns up-side-down when she gets to know rock star crush and thrown into the world of the rich and famous. The kind of story every girl dreams about happening to them at one point or another (by having either the so nice/understanding boss and/or dating your idol crush), while making you laugh at the antics of Olivia's mother and friends.

I LOVED this novel and I cannot wait to see where this series will take us next! Especially since I feel it covered a lot of major twists that you'd typically see in a romance novel I'm not sure what else Ms. Delahanty can/will throw at Berkeley & Olivia. The only twist that surprised me by its rushedness was within the last chapter and I'm not sure it really flowed well with the rest of the novel, which is why I rated it the way I did. Basically, the last chapter makes me wonder even more, what twists are yet to come...

I recommend this novel and series to anyone who likes dramedy type of contemporary romances, especially if you like them with heroes who are in rock bands!

- On a side note -
I thoroughly enjoyed the tweets throughout the novel (even more so after I learned that Ms. Delahanty actually created each acct for her characters). The tweets made me want to use my own twitter acct more so then I have been lately! =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
As I close the bathroom door behind me, I turn and am startled to see Berkeley leaning in the hallway’s doorframe.
My stomach drops, and I don’t think before I blurt, “We have to stop meeting like this.”
He laughs, and a little thrill shoots through me. I just made Berkeley Dalton laugh.
Taking me in, he steps forward. “Well, I don’t know where the Vicente is,” he says. “And maybe I was too presumptuous before—I’ll only come over if you want me to.”
I feel those eyes on me, and I struggle to hold it together. If I want him to? Does he think I have a choice? For a second I imagine saying no, but it’s not in me. It’s my nature to try to make him feel comfortable even when I’m so uncomfortable. “Of course you should come over if you want to. It’ll be fun,” I lie. If by fun you mean us staring at each other in painful silence while we both wonder why the heck you came over in the first place and maybe alternate between electrocution and water boarding. Sounds great. ~ within Chapter 12
