About MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY:

Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.

Don’t let the fact that I’m the leading pick in the Most Valuable Playboy charity auction fool you. These days, I’m only a player on the field. I’ve kept my pants zipped all season long — and it has been long — because nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the owner’s handsy-as-hell sister who seems dead set on winning more than a date with me at the auction.

Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.

She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me the next day that we’ve got to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract.

Violet says she’ll take one for the team and pretend to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport. And soon enough, I want this game with her to go into overtime. The problem is — I’ve been riding the bench for years.

How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?

*MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY is a brand new standalone sports romance written in the guy’s POV!*

Play Harder (Hot for Him #2)Play Harder by J.T. Fox

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


4.5 Stars

Pure Hot, raw sex that was so alpha male it was leaking testosterone through the ereader. This was the first 10%.

It picks up the story where we left off, it is a series and a really good one, it has all I like in a book, well written, a storyline, this one is a mystery and I was stunned at the ending! Not expecting it at all. A good cliffhanger. And damn hot sex scenes between two hunks, of men.

The characters continue to develop personally, as well as this plot. I am not saying anything else as the story is a mystery, a great second in the series. Very much looking forward to the third and final.

J.T Fox has exploded onto my radar, I enjoy her writing. Look forward to another series and or genre in the future also.

From #1 NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely, comes a steamy new standalone rivals-to-lovers romance…
JOY RIDE!




Now available on all retailers! Get ready for the ride of your life, and grab your copy today!

✮✮✮ JOY RIDE is here! Grab your copy today! ✮✮✮
From the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of FULL PACKAGE and BIG ROCK, comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy...

Let's be honest, ladies. A good man is a lot like the perfect car. You want a hot body, an engine that purrs, and superior performance under the hood...for the best joy ride of your life.

I'm at your service. Ready to go all night long.

But then a wildly sexy brunette appears in my life and throws a wrench in all my plans. She's fiery, she's talented, she's gorgeous, and I'd really like to know what makes her engine hum.

Henley also happens to be my biggest rival, and now we're forced to work together every day on the most important custom car build of my career. The trouble is I can't quite figure out if she wants to kick me in the lug nuts or beg me to give her a good, hard fuel injection. Until one night that question is answered on the hood of a sports car when she calls out my name three times. And we can't seem to put on the brakes.

If sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea, how much more dangerous would it be to fall in love with her?

You can find this sexy standalone romantic comedy available across all retailers now!
Amazon / Amazon UK / iBooks / B&N





EXCERT

Henley Rose and a hot car go together like peaches and cream, like fine Scotch and a long, dirty night. Which means working with her was like walking into the Garden of Eden every single day. It was a test of willpower because the woman could craft a car as if it were an erotic dance.

Not a striptease.

Not an in-your-face pelvis thrust.

But a beautiful fucking ballet of a woman seducing machine. Those hands, the way she wielded tools, the intensity in her focus—it was sensual, and it was sinful, and it was this man’s fantasy made flesh.

Imagine what it was like working with her for one, hard-on year.

I mean, hard year.

I survived the challenge because she had talent to spare. And I never treated her differently because she was a woman, or because I thought about her naked an obscene amount of the time. I treated her like anyone else—specifically, all the people I work with who I never ever imagine in anything less than full-on Siberian winter garb, complete with the thermals and Michelin Man coat.

“Black heart still intact.” I tap my sternum. “Same model as before.”

“I’d have thought you’d get an upgrade by now. Faulty parts and all.”

“No recall needed on the ticker. It works just fine in this cruel bastard.” I say, reminding her of the words she’d uttered the day she stormed out.

She arches a brow. “Shame. You should have let me replace it. I’m good at making all sorts of clunkers run better.”

Jesus Christ. She still takes no prisoners. “I’ve no doubt you have all the tools to fix anything, and if you couldn’t find the right one, you’d use a blowtorch.”

She adopts an expression of indignation. “There’s nothing wrong with using a blowtorch,” she says, taking extra time on the first syllable.

How the hell did I ever last with this woman? Before I can even fashion a comeback, she taps her toe against the tire on Wagner’s car. “I see you still like to make your cars with big, manly wheels.”

I roll my eyes then make a give it to me now motion with my hands. “All right, Henley. Deliver the punchline.”

She bats her lashes. “What punchline?”

“Big? Manly? You’re going to say it’s some sort of compensation thing going on. That’s what you always said about the guys who wanted the biggest cars with the biggest wheels.”

She smirks. “Was I wrong in my assessment?”

I laugh. “I don’t know. I didn’t check to see how that added up for them.”

“Nor did I. My focus was always on the work.”

“As well it should have been.”

“That’s what you taught me.”

“I’m glad you learned that lesson.”

“I learned so many lessons from you.”

I was eagerly awaiting this release after listening to Into the Light, boy oh boy this was everything I wanted it to be.

Go forth and read!!!!!

Listened on Audible.

I enjoyed this story. I loved the plot and how it developed, I think I expected a bit more from 'Mister Moneybags' himself, i wanted him to be disgustingly powerful and I found him really nice lol, which isn't a bad thing, just not what I had in my mind.

Anyhow, a great listen and I can't wait to listen to more from this author.

Oh THIS ONE!!! This one!!!! I always say I am looking forward to a Lauren Blakely , but this one!
I am on the floor as I am overcome with swoon and meltiness right now!

I am all about the Joy of his Ride!!!

To say I have been looking forward to this one since I heard the title would be an understatement! I have been waiting for him not ever so patiently. I am delighted that Lauren wrote the nuts out of this!

Henley and Max are a match made in heaven, she is back in town as a competitor, last seeing Max when she left his garage on a sour note. Time has not healed the wounds and with pride, hurt and no trust in the equation, it may take more than being forced to work on a project and some seriously hot cars to weld a friendship back together here.

Hot cars, made even hotter by what goes on, on top of them, swoon worthy moments, I tell you, Max is my perfect man. I am done. He made my perfect car, he does the most swoon worthy, sexy things and is just, well look at it!!

In: A - C
The Player (The Player, #1)The Player by K. Bromberg

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Kristy injected passion, heart and soul into this book and I am counting down the days to get my mitts on 'The Catch'

Easton & Scout, The Player and his new physical therapist. Not the therapist he was expecting, which leads to not the typical first meeting, and from there this chemistry between the two is ignited.
Scout has so much riding on Easton's recovery that she is also truly guarded and really afraid of letting the spark she felt develop into anything more.

The confident Easton is not one to sit back and rest on his laurels though, not on or off the pitch, he is determined to get what he wants. Passion, emotion, drama well written content and characters and an ending which had me looking for the release date of the next in the series.... I am hooked on baseball players!

It has the same 'plodding along' feel that I got from The girl on a train, i enjoyed it, but wish it had a faster pace, or something more within the first 3/4's to really really grip me then it would have been a 5 star read.

I had no clue, I thought all sorts of things were going on, but when it says 'twisty' 'chilling' etc, then this is what I got from the last bit.... Left me thinking thats for sure.

I had the pleasure of listening on Audible!

Oh my oh my, both narrators did an exquisite job of bringing the characters to life, Andi Arndt & Zacchary Webber. Two of my favourites in fact.

Now the book, a second chance romance and with some serious grovelling to do over the way things ended, Tyler takes it upon himself to get down to basics, basically laying it all out there for Delaney to see. Hoping for a chance...... you know....

With a wonderful nurturing side, a romantic, sexy and passionate, and not forgetting he is a smart dresser for his job, Tyler is hot in and out of the sexy times! Delaney can certainly match him, and i loved getting to know Lauren's latest 'Hot Ones' they certainly provided some spark for my headphones!

Listened on audible.

Ok, this was written well, I enjoyed the story and the narration. I did think it was who it was in the end, which is unusual for me, considering there could have been 50 people who did it, (ok, slight exaggeration) because every male the heroine came into contact with seemed to fancy her, want her or she wanted.
She did have an obsession with sticking to her favourite running route despite it being the centre of crimes, which left me speechless at times..... She wasn't stupid. It almost made me feel like she was attention seeking. I was addicted to this character and her behaviour and dealings with the people in her life.

Enjoyable, a character that leaves you thinking for sure.

Toying between 3-4 stars on this one... It a great story i did enjoy it, knowing that she is a murderer from the beginning is such a different take on things.... but all i can say is that it could have been shorter then. Things dragged on.

I got so annoyed with Callie on numerous occasions and it isn't bad thing for me to dislike a main character at times!

Try it...

I have had this on my list for ages, so was excited to get it in a buy on get on free inaudible....
I was expecting a lot from this, and I did enjoy the story, but I think there were some loose ends for me and an abrupt ending. And I was left wanting some more from the story as it was an intriguing one with the dynamics of friendships and this 'list' and the perception of pretty and ugly.

I will read more from the author.

listened on audible 4.5 stars

The narration was perfection bringing the story and characters to life, and this 'perfect house'. Of course, nothing is perfect and everything has a flaw. All the characters have their flaws in this book, they were all battling in my head at one time for their status as the bad guy.

I had no clue. so the book won!

The author was in no rush to tell the story and I really enjoyed all aspects, never boring, always eager to get back to listening and I want to see this on the big screen, the house come to life and see if it is as alive as it felt in my imagination.

I look forward to reading/listening to more from this author.

The Fire Between High & Lo (Elements, #2)The Fire Between High & Lo by Brittainy C. Cherry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Listened on audible.

The air he breathes was the first in the 'Elements' series of books and was and OMG book, had me crying and gave me all the feels and was just perfection for me. So this had some living up to do.

I enjoyed the story, the depth and detail and emotion that Brittainy brings to her books is beautiful and I love reading them, did I love this as much as The Air he Breathes? Not as much no, now this is a small bit, but there was a difference..... not enough to take it down any stars as I love her writing too much and there are not enough star increments, no I didn't cry in this one either, reading the reviews where people were crying from the start, I think my heart must have frozen over with the cold, but I got the emotion, I got the feels and that is what I expect and get from Brittainy.

But, I did really enjoy it, this is my third Brittainy book now and I'm about to start my fourth.

Hot sexy man.... check!
Confident sexy heroine...check!.
meltingly good romance..... check!
A Doctor... bonus, food recipes, bonus... and PS, a hot brother who I may say is fit as flip.

A sexy friends to lovers story with added sprinkles to delight, the hero and heroines jobs may be my favourite ever, I mean, can you get better than a Doctor to swoon over and then a baker to make your mouth water?
The characters Lauren created I fell in love with straight away, Lauren has the knack of creating these relatable, likeable and so freaking sexy characters who you fall into their storyline instantly and always have fun reading or in this case for me, listening. Yes, I had the immense pleasure of being read to by Sebastian York and he did Chase proud, I was in audio heaven as he brought the story to life.

My first from the author and now i am hooked!!

I enjoyed this, a charming Prince and a normal girl, and I love a story like that, and it was exactly what I got with some great one liners, romance and hiccups along the way.

A great cast of characters, so I am looking forward to the next in the series.

Play Hard (Hot for Him #1)Play Hard by J.T. Fox

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I am reading this as part of a blog tour. When I saw the cover, well..... hell yes, and I have no objection to double the MAN!! When written well, it is sooo f*&cking hot. and....This is written well.

Straight into the story, which with a novella is needed and honestly, it doesn't stop, rest on it's beautifully carved body or lack in the story and sex department.

The 'relationship' is a difficult one, both are in the spotlight being pro-sportsmen and there are issues around them and so it is a bit of a real worry to be seen together, more so for one. But with a history that spans back a few years, there is a lot of sexual chemistry and a chance meeting well, with flirty Eric, the more cocky of the two, so enjoying putting Jordan in trouser adjusting situations.. Jordan finds it Hard to resist. Me too!!!!

I really got into this, it is fast paced, it is a series and as such, there is a cliffhanger, as a cliffhanger lover, I LOVED IT!

Can't wait for the next one.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


As a Lauren fan I was worried to read this as I am not a great sports fan, or a novella fan but I shouldn't have been worried! It was beefier than I expected, getting a connection, storyline and meeting other characters who I'd like to hear more from all in one novella. And as for the sports, it is his job so yes it is part of the book but it isn't all consuming like watching a match so I actually could enjoy the highlights without the usual cursing and swearing and my blood pressure going through the roof. lol

Lauren writes so that you develop a connection to the characters and quickly, so I was invested straight away with Dani & Drew. That is what you need in a novella and this is what you get, sizzle, heat and a fun read which left me wanting more from any of the characters that I met along the way......
