Interception (Love Triangle Duet #1) by Lisa Suzanne

My Rating: 5 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: Yes, Love Triangle Duet #1.
All I wanted was a second chance.

Now I’m torn between the pro football player and the rock star, the one I always wanted and the one I was too blind to notice, my high school sweetheart and my best friend.

Is it possible to be in love with two different men at the same time? 

The answer is yes, and I don’t know how to choose one without hurting the other... and myself. I need to figure out which man belongs in my future and which is better left in the past.

Will the football player grab the top spot in my heart, or will the rock star make his own interception?

I am really invested in this book! 

Delaney was making me really nervous, she is stringing these guys along while she decides what to do. Oh poor girl, she has to choose between two amazingly perfect and rich guys. 

The only reason I'm still loving the book and haven't been completely turned off by her is because she is getting what she deserves. 

There is a reason her perfect guy walked away from her all those years ago, and she seems oblivious to it. He had her and let her go, no matter what he says, there must be an explanation required for this kind of situation.

On the other hand, Gavin has loved her since forever, and she pushed him away. She wasn't even his to begin with, and he still waited, patiently, longing for her from afar, and his reward now is her choosing Chase over him again.

Delaney seems super immature, she in not making smart choices, or really making any choices at all, she is just going with the flow, letting these guys steer her the way they want.

Can't wait to see what happens next!

Tempting Little Tease (Blackwell-Lyon #4) by J. Kenner

My Rating: 4 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: Yes, Blackwell-Lyon #4
She’s a temptation I just can’t resist…

My business is security. I protect other people—sometimes at my own expense.
It’s the only way to explain how I got talked into playing fake fiancé for my best friend’s little sister.

Now I’m seeing little Samantha Watson through new eyes. Instead of the little girl I used to tease, I’m up close and personal with a stunning woman whose curves and heat and heart-stopping smile rocket straight to my heart, not to mention parts south.

I’ve never minded going above and beyond for a job. Except playing the smitten lover doesn’t feel like acting anymore.

Despite all my experience, I’m the one who forgot to secure my heart.
The only rule for this job was to walk away at the end.

But maybe this time—for the first time—I’m going to break the rules.

Sam and Leo have known each other since forever, but it’s been a while since they last saw one another. Leo is in need of a break, and his timing couldn’t be better. A favor for a friend can end up being one of the best decisions he has ever made.

Sam has a plan and she needs Leo’s help. Is she holding back information? Yes, but he doesn’t need to know everything does he?

Being so close to her might be harder than he expected it to be, resisting her is turning out to be a full time job. Fulfilling a promise to his best friend against giving into temptation… what will win?

Truth or dare game and a few drinks might be just what the doctor ordered.

Funny short and fast paced story you don’t want to miss. The chemistry between the characters is amazing and it keeps us at the edge of our seat the whole time.

Can you love someone since forever and never realize about it?

Quiet Man (Dream Man #4.5) by Kristen Ashley

My Rating: 3 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: Yes, Dream Man #4.5
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Ashley comes a new story in her Dream Man series… 

Charlotte “Lottie” McAlister is in the zone. She’s ready to take on the next chapter of her life, and since she doesn’t have a man, she’ll do what she’s done all along. She’ll take care of business on her own. Even if that business means starting a family. 

The problem is, Lottie has a stalker. The really bad kind. The kind that means she needs a bodyguard. 

Enter Mo Morrison. 

Enormous. Scary. 


Mo doesn’t say much, and Lottie’s used to getting attention. And she wants Mo’s attention. Badly. 

But Mo has a strict rule. If he’s guarding your body, that’s all he’s doing with it. 

However, the longer Mo has to keep Lottie safe, the faster he falls for the beautiful blonde who has it so together, she might even be able to tackle the demons he’s got in his head that just won’t die. 

But in the end, Lottie and Mo don’t only have to find some way to keep hands off until the threat is over, they have to negotiate the overprotective Hot Bunch, Lottie’s crazy stepdad, Tex, Mo’s crew of frat-boy commandos, not to mention his nutty sisters. 

All before Lottie finally gets her Dream Man. 

And Mo can lay claim to his Dream Girl.

I'm so disappointed in this book... I love the author and I love sexy military man. Also the idea of a Pole dancer/stripper strong lead exited me since I like training myself as a Hobby. 
I couldn't really connect with the characters, she didn't really connect with him. She saw him and that was it, even though she was always super picky about her men, she was just: "Oh tall sexy pretty eyes" YES! I wanna keep him forever!

He was a professional, and one look at her and he was breaking rule number one, lying to his boss and jeopardizing a mission. All because she was hot and annoying.

The whole investigation, and the finding of the unsub was the most interesting part of the book. That and Mo's conversation with her neighbor, it was the only fun moment and the only time I connected with his character.

The book is well written, but the characters lack the capacity to make you connect with them. 

A sad day for my reading :(

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning. Nothing’s changed. Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched). Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up. And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

Playing for Keeps (Hot Jocks #1 ) by Kendall Ryan

My Rating: 5 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: Yes, Hot Jocks #1.
I've never been so stupid in my entire life. 

Elise Parrish, my teammate's incredibly sweet and gorgeous younger sister, should have been off-limits, but my hockey stick didn't get the memo. 

After our team won the championship, our flirting turned physical, and I took her to bed. Then shame sent her running the next morning from our catastrophic mistake. 

She thinks I don't remember that night - but every detail is burned into my brain so deeply, I'll never forget. The feel of her in my arms, the soft whimpers of pleasure I coaxed from her perfect lips....

And now I've spent three months trying to get her out of my head, but I'm starting to understand she's the only girl I'll ever want.  

I have one shot to show her I can be exactly what she needs, but Elise won't be easily convinced.  

That's okay, because I'm good under pressure, and this time, I'm playing for keeps.

Get ready to meet your new favorite hot jocks in an all new series of stand-alone novels. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series of athlete romances is perfect for you!

Elise and Justin story is the perfect best friend's sister love story. 

They've know each other since forever and even though on paper they look as opposite as two people can be they compliment each other perfectly.

Justin has lived the party life and now it is tasting a little stale. He is looking for something more without realizing what it is. Being around Elise has always felt right and she is no longer the young girl following them around, so things get a little bit confusing.

Elise has loved Justin almost all of her life, but when she started to grow up, she decided that the fantasy should take a back seat. He was not a settle down type of guy and she was sure it would only lead to heartbreak.

A weird and interesting night puts them closer than they have ever been and now they can't seem to stay away. 
Secrets are exciting but they also never stay secret for long, lying to their friends and family is getting trickier, and what started as an affair has turned into something deeper.

Justin knows what he wants, he's played the field and even though he wont accept it, she is it. His fear of not being able to love or be loved the right way has held him back enough, it's time to break free.

One event—the death of Ben Turner—will forever change the lives of a group of young adults. Set in the beach town of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, this series is an emotional, surprising, sweet, romantic collection of 4 interconnected stand-alone novels.

Noah is determined to escape his past and keep his life under control. Then he saves the life of his best friend’s little sister, Georgina Turner — who is battling her own demons. He can't get her out of his head, even if Georgina tears down the emotional walls he so carefully built.

In real life Ellie has her own issues to worry about. So when the pair meets on an airplane, nothing life changing should have come from it.

When Sydney Michaels' lifelong crush—Ben Turner—died and she struggled to get through her grief, she decided to give up her virginity to Rhett Morgan, the most promiscuous guy in town, in hopes that he'd be the ultimate distraction. Only problem...Sydney only wanted one night. Rhett wants more.

Book 4: ADRIFT 
Ben Turner is back! After unsuccessfully faking his own death, he's back home in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. With no plans for college or the future, and hated by the town that once loved him, Ben feels like he’s drowning. Until he meets the girl next door, and she changes everything.
