After enduring a horrific childhood, William Jackson lives a solitary existence working as a computer programmer from his Minnesota home. His safe routine is blown to pieces when the daily sight of an unknown woman walking her dog sends his heart into a tailspin.

Jenny Fitzgerald’s love life is at a definite low. Her only potential date in sight is her annoying and creepy coworker, Evan—until a stunning man appears before her like a gift from some kindly sex god. Who is she to turn down what’s offered to her on a hunky blond platter?

Will and Jenny’s friendship develops as their hunger grows into love. Meanwhile, a jealous Evan watches, his rage building until it explodes in a brutal act of violence that tears Jenny’s life apart. Will struggles to help her rebuild her courage and sense of self as his own demons and fragile memories threaten their chance at happiness—but perhaps they can learn to heal each other.

Reader Advisory: This book contains a realistic, violent near-rape scene.

Managed 2: A Rock Star Romance (Managed #2) by Clarissa Carlyle

 

 

 

Managed 2: A Rock Star Romance

  

Managed 2: A Rock Star Romance
Managed #2
Clarissa Carlyle
 August 18th 2017

 

This is Book 2 in the Managed, a rock star romance series.

Hailey is hired as Jasper’s PR representative after a sex scandal hit social media and damaged his career. Her job is to rebuild his tattered reputation.

As she works with him she finds he is a different person than the rock star image he shows the world. Before she knows it she feels herself becoming lost in his eyes.

When he tries to kiss her, she felt her life spinning out of control. In desperation, she ran out in the street with him following her. Wanting to catch up with her he never noticed the speeding taxi that struck him.

Now, she fears for Jasper’s life and when he asks to help with his recovery, she is powerless to resist. As she helps him get back on his feet, she finds herself questioning whether she can keep her personal life away from her professional career.

Note: This series contains some adult situations. 18+, mature audiences recommended.

 

 

 

My thoughts on the first part of this series were :

I have a bad feeling where this journey is going to be honest – I liked the Blurb and started reading but already during the first pages I got the feeling that I would be having an issue here.

 

The characters were lacking depth and were simply acting immature (to be honest they were acting simply stupid) the dialogues were on the level of High School and so predictable that it almost hurt.

But I was thinking I will finish this because at some point this will have to get better – right ? – now the book is finished and I am not so sure – I think the only reason I finished this book was because it was so short …BUT I will try the second one before my final vote …

 

WELL and here I am again and what can I say the book developed #sarcasm

It still is all the things I mentioned above about the first part and now it adds “unbelievable” to the collection … and this happens in a way that I had to give up not only on finishing this 4 book series but already the finishing of the second part here . It was a DNF at around 70 % then skimming through the pages until I reached the end to make sure I do not miss any mayor breakthroughs

 

The blur already tells you that the male lead gets hurt so no mayor spoiler here from my side but in case you dislike spoilers do not read further

 

The description of the injuries of the male lead make me think that it is highly unbelievable that he is running around the way he is the day after the accident happens and I mean HIGHLY unbelievable

 

And the Issue with “who is going to handle his account”  while the male lead is sitting in a corner listening is not only HIGHLY unprofessional with the client in the room,  but also again done on the level of a High School disagreement – those two issues added on top of the rest and I had to give up on this story – sorry

Just Pretend by Juliana Conners

 

 

 

Just Pretend

  

 Just Pretend
 Juliana Conners
 June 26th 2017

 

It’s been a long time coming…

She’s never had an orgasm.
When I learn this juicy fact,
I’m determined to give her her first one. Or ten….

There’s just one problem: she’s my physical therapist,
in charge of getting me back into the Navy SEALs
after my helicopter was shot down and I nearly died.
I’m not supposed to bend her over the physical therapy barre
while I pull her hair and take her from behind,
my hard pecs and abs up against her back,
my lips all over her neck.

So I have to hold her pretty mouth
while she moans my name
and screams into my hand
as I make her come for her very first time.

If we’re caught, her job and my future as a SEAL will end.
Unless I get down on one knee for her
to make sure she can keep getting down on both of hers for me.

It’s all forbidden fun and games until someone has to propose…

* Just Pretend is a full length standalone romance novel of approximately 65,000 words, featuring a military bad boy and his curvy fake fiance who earn their HEA. It has no cliffhanger and no cheating.

This book was previously published in a different from as Harlow and this version has a changed and expanded plot line and additional super steamy scenes. Bonus content is included for your continued reading pleasure, including the never before published, sizzling hot story Whitney’s Slip and Slide SEAL. Enjoy! (less)

 

 

 

And here we have last weekends def. winner in the section “JUST PRETEND” I never read that book.

The Idea was good but the writing was poor and the story made me want to scream at times. When the other book this weekend “only” made me angry this one really did that AND made me want to scream. I just kept on going to read it because I could not believe that this was actually happening I must have been in a kind of shock.

I do not even know where to start if I had to explain what was wrong with this story.

Lets sum it up to one thing that stands before everything else  … this is the first time ever that I heard that a SEAL gets his orders from a civil Dr. and not from a commanding officer.

Fallen
Of Angels and Demons #2
Michele Hauf
April 2011

 

Wanting to be a part of mankind, the angel fell—losing his halo, the prize that held his earthbound soul. Now Cooper must retrieve it. But wherever the Fallen walk, a Sinistari demon intent with slaying one is not far behind. Cooper knows he must be wary of this demon. But his first encounter with her leaves him curiously hungering for more…

To reclaim her own soul, Pyxion must kill an angel. Not just any angel, but one who’s fallen to earth and taken on an irresistible, seductive human form. She never expected that she would feel an attraction for the man she hunted—or that she might need his help. When faced with a powerful mutual threat, she and Cooper form an alliance. But as the danger heightens, so does the passion…and if they give in, all could be lost.

I like to be filthy. I talk dirty for a living.
But I never meet my clients.
Not until now…
Cole Hardcastle.
He’s a hot-as-all-hell SEAL with a body to die for
And a tongue as filthy as my own.

His navy buddies signed him up to my sext line.
He thinks I’m just an ordinary girl.
And he’s got no idea he’s on a blind date with a professional phone sexter…
Looks like I’ve got some explaining to do.
But that can wait.
We’re gonna dial the steam up to eleven,
And I can enact my every last fantasy…

This is a full-length romance, with steamy love scenes, a beautiful HEA and utterly no cliffhangers!

Pretending He’s Mine (Caught Up in Love #2) by Lauren Blakely

 

 

 

Pretending He's Mine (Caught Up in Love, #2)

  

 Pretending He’s Mine
Caught Up in Love #2
Lauren Blakely
March 2nd 2013

 

Once upon a time in New York City, there was a down-on-his-luck actor named Reeve, who was talented and gorgeous in that dreamy, broody sort of way that makes all the women swoon. But show biz is a rough biz – he lost out on a part in a big film, and now his day job hours have been cut too. What’s a handsome young thing in need of a role to do? Enter Sutton Brenner. She’s sexy and shrewd and the most top-notch casting director there is. She’s this close to landing a coveted gig casting a film based on a best-selling mega-romance novel, but there’s a catch. After one too many transgressions with lovely single ladies, the film’s philandering producer has been put on a short leash by his wife, who’s forbidden him from working with anyone unattached. So the happily single Sutton strikes a pact with Reeve – play the role of her fiancee until she closes the deal, and he’s guaranteed to get an audition for the starring role in the film. But as the two play pretend, the lines between make-believe and matters of the heart start to blur. Especially after that hot night in the balcony of the Broadway theater. And that scorching afternoon in the stacks of the New York Public Library. Who’s playing who? Or is someone else really the director in the secret affair of their lives?

PRETENDING HE’S MINE is a companion book in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling CAUGHT UP IN US series. It can be read before or after CAUGHT UP IN US. You do not need to have read CAUGHT UP IN US to enjoy this story, though characters from CAUGHT UP IN US appear in PRETENDING HE’S MINE.

Mason foster goes through assistants like some people go through tissues. He’s sick and tired of having to replace them, so his best friend and business partner decides to help him out.

Kennedy Myers is here for a job and nothing else. But when the money is too good to be true, there’s nothing she won’t do to please her new boss. She’s bought and paid for, so who is she to say no? Especially when she likes it.

Warning: This dirty office romance is over-the-top filthy. If you want a possessive alpha with a bossy mouth, then do what you’re told and get this book! Seriously, though, if Mason asks, just say you bought it. He’s grumpy.

What He Wants SERIES (What He Wants #1-24 so far !!!) by Hannah Ford

 

 

    

  

 What He Wants SERIES
What He Wants #1-24 so far !!! not finished yet
Hannah Ford
Jan  2015 – July 2017

 

Twenty-one-year-old law student student Charlotte Holloway isn’t the type of girl to lust after things she can’t have. But when she starts working for the sexy and mysterious Noah Cutler, Charlotte can’t help but dream about the gorgeous billionaire, even though she knows it’s just a fantasy. Men like Noah – gorgeous, dark, and driven– usually aren’t interested in women like her.

Noah Cutler is a man who doesn’t take no for an answer. His drive to go after exactly what he wants has made him one of the most powerful men in the city. And while he could have his pick of any woman, his sights are set on Charlotte. And he won’t stop until he’s taken control of every inch of her deliciously curvy body…

EXCERPT:

“You are so fucking sexy,” Noah rasped. “Come here. Come to me.”

I got up and crossed the room to him, and he pulled me into his lap. His hand
slid up my thigh, pushing my skirt with it. His other hand slid up to the back of my head, and pushed me toward him. “I’m going to fuck you again, Charlotte,” he said. I could feel his cock hard against me, and I moaned. “This time I’m going to fuck you for a long time. Do you think you can handle it?”

“Yes,” I breathed.

“Tell me you want me to fuck you.”

“I want you to fuck me,” I said. “Please, I need you to fuck me.”

“Say my name.” He dipped a finger into my mouth and I sucked on it softly, watching his eyes blaze as I did it.

“Fuck me, Noah,” I whispered. “Please, I want you to fuck me.”

He kissed me then, softly, which was a surprise after all the dirty things he’d been saying to me. His tongue was warm and perfect, his mouth exploring mine, probing hungrily.

I pushed myself against the hardness of his dick, but just like he had earlier, he reached out and held my hips, stopping me. “No,” he said. “You don’t get to control this. I do. And we’re going to go nice and slow.”

He began to unbutton my shirt, stopping as soon as my breasts were exposed. He ran a finger over my cleavage.

“I’m going to explore every single inch of these hot, sexy curves of yours. Do you understand that, Charlotte?”

“Yes,” I said. I was dripping now, so turned on that I was afraid I might come without him even touching me.

He stood up, his hands grabbing at my ass. I wrapped my legs around him and he picked me up like it was nothing, like I was as light as a feather. I buried my face in his shoulder.

I hesitated for a just a second, right before he carried me into his bedroom.

If I did this, there was no turning back…

 

 

 

When I read the blurb to this book I was intrigued and yeah it happened again I did not notice the page number – and please all fellow readers do me a favor – CHECK THE PAGENUMBERS – if you have the chance before you purchase a book.
I did not do that and imagine my surprise this is not a book – no if you ask me it is not even a novella or a short story – if I am being nice I might say it’s a chapter of a book.

What bugs me the most is that the plot is interesting – but could I recommend it ? Well I would have to give you a very separated opinion which makes it very hard to give a rating.
If you have kindle unlimited I would say GO for it – because it is good BUT the author keeps squeezing the last out of it and the more the “chapters” (so far its at NO 24) continue the more it feels like she is dragging it out- so I am not sure where we are going.

BUT if you are a normal reader buying book by book – I will say something I never said before …. Even though this book is good – STAY AWAY FROM buying it – sorry – but so far 24 “books” in – you would have paid more than 80 $ for around 1200 pages that would equal around 4 normal books … meaning you paid more than 20$ for one ebook …. And when was the last time you did that ? To support my opinion I opened the main kindle books page on amazon and searched randomly for the most expensive eBook there it was “The silent Corner” by Dean Koontz for 17$ and it has 466 pages (while I was calculating with 300) and I would never buy that kindle book because the hardcover of that book listed right beside it was CHEAPER than the eBook which is also something I can never understand as printing a physical book – with all side costs – should make a book more expensive than an electronical file. But that is an ongoing story for another time. But lets face the facts a random ebook of average page count costs less than 10 $ and in most cases even less than 5$.

The story is good yes but it is not THAT good that I could encourage a purchase with this pricing structure. Especially with no end in sight this feels like one of those collection / construction sets you can buy where you receive parts each week for a few bucks and you think “its not that much” but once you finish the collection (and you have no idea when that might be) you realize that you paid like 500$ for something that you needed to put together on your own while others bought the finished product for less than half …But naturally at first that “half” sounded like a lot and it seemed so much cheaper to spend only those tiny amounts ….

Even with as good as that story is I refuse to support this new system of chapter books that seems to be getting more and more popular by only reviewing this book based on its story. Everything about a book matters and the price is a big part of a book. So without “kindle unlimited” I can not recommend this book.

Henry & Me by Sasha Clinton

 

 

 

Henry & Me

  

Henry & Me
Sasha Clinton
July 5th 2017

 

When we were in college, Henry Stone asked me out and I shot him down in the most humiliating way possible.
He was a nerd and I was the golden girl of the theatre society, destined to make it big in Hollywood, so how could there be anything between us?


Now six years later, as an out-of-work actress who has to take on a housekeeping job to stay afloat, I run into him again—and boy, has he made it big.


As I begin to clean his house and take care of his precocious nephew, I realize how wrong I was about him. He’s sexy, smart, kind, everything I never though he would be.


But I have demons that he can’t fight. Demons that keep me away from love.


One thing’s for sure: This housekeeper-gig is going to be the hardest role of my life.

 

 

 

Gosh I had just finished a book where the male lead was such a jerk that it hurt to read and I had to give up. Then starting this book thinking … with that title and it being a “Romantic Novel” what could go wrong.

It appears … A LOT….

 

In this case it is not the male lead but the female lead that is such a superficial jerk that it really hurts. I tried reading it like a comedy but I could not keep my mind on this focus…

Let me think a moment if there was one character in that storyline that I liked …

Ahm

NO.

If I had to choose than maybe Henry would be the remotely most likeable person.

But even he was shallow – sorry.

 

And in comparison to the previous book with the male lead that was a jerk I can not even say that the storyline of this book was good. Because (sorry to say it so blunt) it wasn’t.

Or at least it wasn’t really well developed and nothing felt believable
