Royally Matched
by Emma Chase

I am a huge fan of Emma Chase and I loved the first book in this series so I was super excited to read this one!



Synopsis:
Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to help her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora agrees to give him "space"—but while the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit... and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

We meet Henry in book 1 where is he is forced into a position he is not at all prepared for.  At the beginning of this book, he is drowning.  I wanted to hug him!  Henry never wanted to be king, and he is struggling greatly!!  And Sarah is a sweet, innocent girl that automatically grabs his attention, even when he should stay away,
I loved seeing Henry and Sarah evolve and find themselves.  They both came into there own, not only with each other, but individually as well. 
I highly recommend this whole series.  Both books are sexy, funny, sweet, and moving.  You must read both books, and there is another one coming!!  I can't wait!

Fake Fiancee
by Isla Madden Mills

I am a huge fan of this author so I was excited for a new one from her. 
Synopsis:
They say nothing compares to your first kiss, But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience. Our second kiss . . . that one was REAL. He cradled my face like he was terrified he’d f*ck it up. He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed. Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs, He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate, And he’d never get another piece. A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist . . . And I was lost. I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancĂ©e. I forgot we weren’t REAL. Our kiss was pure magic, and before you laugh and say those kinds of kisses don’t exist, Then you’ve never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history.

I really enjoyed this book, and there is much more to the story than the synopsis implies.  I adored both characters.  Max is a hero, and sexy, and a bit of a douchebag.  And Sunny was strong and independent, and I loved her.  She was not afraid to stand up to the Quarterback.  There is a ton of history with these characters, and I highly recommend this book.  It is light and sexy and fun.  And I am probably in the minority when I say this, but I don't love the cover, so please don't let that sway you.  You should still read this book!! 

This book is live and available now, and is only $.99 right now, so grab it quick



Singe
by Aly Martinez

Singe in the first book in a new series by Aly Martinez.  I have loved her other series so I was very excited to read this one. 

Synopsis:
She was my nightmare. Every time I closed my eyes, I watched her fall into that inferno. Over and over, I failed to save her.

I hadn’t been able to reach her, and the guilt only burned hotter over time. Four years later, I was the unreachable one.

Heroes aren’t always saints. Sometimes, we’re nothing more than jaded sinners driven by sleepless nights and hearts full of darkness.

And then I met her. She was a dreamer who managed to soothe my scars and heal my wounds.

But, as the flames closed in around us, I feared I wasn’t the right man to save her. That is until I realized she was the one woman I’d burn the world down to protect.

This book was heartbreaking and sexy and I loved it.  It sucked me in from the beginning.  Jude and Rhion were such great characters.  Both flawed and a little broke, but also strong and destined to be together. 
Singe is fast paced and suspenseful with a little twist thrown in.  This is the first book in a new series, and I can't wait to see where it goes from here.  There are so many great characters in this story, I am excited to get more insight into them. 

Singe is the first book in this series, but it is not a cliffhanger.  It is available now and you should definitely read it, I highly recommend it!!

Defy
by LJ Shen


Defy is the prequel to Vicious, the first book in the Sinners of Saint series.  This is a novella and can be read as a standalone. 

Synopsis:
My name is Melody Greene, and I have a confession to make.
I slept with my student, a senior in high school.
Multiple times.
I had multiple orgasms.
In multiple positions.
I slept with my student and I enjoyed it.
I slept with my student and I’d do it all over again if I could turn back time.
My name is Melody Greene, and I got kicked out of my position as a teacher and did my walk of shame a la Cersei Lannister from the principal’s office, minutes after said principal threatened to call the cops on me.
My name is Melody Greene, and I did something bad because it made me feel good.
Here is why it was totally worth it.

I fell in love with this book right away.  It is sexy and forbidden, and I loved the characters.  Jaimie was a dirty talker and Melody was funny, and a little lost, but she was also a strong heroine.  This is a novella, but it has a ton of story to it.  It is fast paced and super hot!  I highly recommend this book, and I can't wait for the other books in the series. 
Defy is available now and is only $.99 for a limited time, so grab it quick!

Lucian Divine
by Renee Carlino
This is a different genre for Renee Carlino and I was very intrigued.  I love this author, and I was very curious where this book would go.  
 
 
Synopsis:
“My guardian angel is a drunk.”

Evelyn Casey’s life is at a standstill. She’s in her mid-twenties, struggling with the dating scene in San Francisco. Nothing seems to be working out, and she’s starting to think that she’ll live out her days in her crummy apartment with her overbearing roommate, Brooklyn. It’s absurd, but sometimes Evey longs for a guardian angel to show up and save the day.

And then he does. Seriously. His name is Lucian and he’s a guardian angel, been on the job for two thousand years. His sudden presence in her life is both good—he’s brilliant, witty, and warm—and bad—he’s brilliant, witty, warm, and hot as —-. But as perfect as Lucian seems, he’s got problems of his own. He’s taken up drinking and he’s brazenly inserted himself into Evey’s life, going against the greatest cosmic law ever created.

For Evey, the rules are simple: You are not allowed to hook up with your guardian angel. But sometimes fulfilling your destiny requires a leap of faith, a confrontation with God.

Yes, God as in God. 
 
This story was very different.  I was sucked in immediately.  Lucian is hilarious and sexy.  And Evey was a fun and strong character that you couldn't help but fall in love with.  This story is about finding love and overcoming the challenges that come with it.  It is technically a paranormal story, however, it is more about the relationship between Lucian and Evey than paranormal.  I loved this story, if you aren't really into paranormal than this one is for you.  It is sexy, funny, and heartbreaking.  I loved this book and highly recommend it.  It is live tomorrow, but is available for pre order now.

Until Ashlynn
by Aurora Rose Reynolds
 
I am a huge Aurora Rose Reynolds fan, she writes great alphas, and just the right amount of angst.  I was very excited to read this one.  This is part of a series, but can be read as a stand alone.  
Synopsis:
Dillon Keck knew Ashlyn Mayson was drunk when she suggested they get married. He knew he should have taken her back to their hotel room and put her to bed. Instead, he did what he had been craving to do since the moment they met.
Claim her as his.
Waking up married in Vegas isn't something Ashlyn Mayson ever thought would happen to her. Having Dillon, her boss, a man she thinks is a dick, insist they stay married is absurd, but every time he touches her, she gets lost in him and wonders if maybe they are meant to be together.
But someone isn't happy for Dillon and Ashlyn and their new found romance, and they're willing to do anything to keep them apart. Even commit murder.


Waking up in Vegas married is not a new thing for romance books.  But I did like the way that Dillon and Ashlyn handled it.  I love the banter between the 2 of these characters.  Dillon is a super alpha and Ashlyn is a fun smart sexy girl.  There is some action and drama as always too.  And I loved that we got a little of the characters from previous books.  
 
 
I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.  It can be read as a stand alone, but I recommend reading the whole series!!

Jaded Hearts 
by Harper Sloan
 
Jaded Hearts is the first book in the new series but Harper Sloan.  It is a spin off of the Hope Town series, but you do not have to have read the Hope Town series to start this new one. 
 

 


Synopsis:
Signing with Brighthouse Records was supposed to be everything we ever wanted—our better life. Our chance at everything we never had but always wanted. All our dreams would finally come true and we were on top of the world.
It was our chance at the happiness we never had in life.
Our every desire was at our fingertips and the power of that feeling was all consuming. But then it took every dream we thought would come true and it slapped us in the face with the cold hard reality.
Dreams were just that…something that floated on the cusp of untouchable, taunting you with every graze of your fingertips before slipping even further away.
Happiness…that feeling is a joke.
In the end it became painfully obvious that each of us would always have each other, but we would forever be alone.

This rock star book was different or a couple reasons.  It was about female, and it was also about the darker side.  Where everything isn't great grand and wonderful and the struggles that go along with it.  Wren was a badass, and tough.  She was a little hard to relate to in the beginning.  But as I got more insight into her, I really liked her.  We met Chance in earlier books,. but we really go to know him in this book.  And there was a lot of sexiness in this story for sure.  Add in a little drama and you have this book. 
 

This book is live and available too, this is the first in the series, and I can't wait to read about the other bandmembers!!
