Filthy Foreign Exchange
by SE Hall and Angela Graham
I have read all the other books that these 2 have written so I was excited to read this one.  And it was my favorite by far.  
Echo Kelly is loyal to her studies, family, and aerial artistry. She has no time for or interest in anything else, and is heartbroken when her oldest brother, Sebastian, gets accepted to a study-abroad program— exchanging places with cocky, not-at-all-shy foreign exchange student Kingston Hawthorne.
Kingston Hawthorne had the life every twenty-year-old guy dreams of— endless cash, easy women, and fast cars— until his father ripped it all away, shipping him off to the States and placing him temptingly close to the underage virgin who fascinates him in the most challenging of ways.
With Kingston’s bedroom just a connecting bathroom away from Echo’s, the chemistry between them is even more enticing than the notes he leaves for her on the shower door.
How long can you pretend you’re just friends?
I loved Echo.  She was a very different character, she was sweet and innocent, but also super sassy.  Kingston was hot, sexy, and arrogant, but also sweet.  There's was a ton of angst, every time I thought something was gonna happen, it didn't!  
The banter between Echo and Kingston was hilarious.  Most of the books by these authors are centered around sex, but this one wasn't!  There is so much buildup I couldn't put it down.  This one does end on a cliffy, but the next one comes out in May, so not too long of a wait.  I really enjoyed this one and highly recommend it!!

Listen to Me
by Kristen Proby
I am a huge fan of Kristen Proby, so I as so excited to read this book!  This is the first book in a new series.

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new series, five best friends open a hot new restaurant, but one of them gets much more than she bargained for when a sexy former rock star walks through the doors—and into her heart.

Seduction is quickly becoming the hottest new restaurant in Portland, and Addison Wade is proud to claim 1/5 of the credit. She’s determined to make it a success and can’t think of a better way to bring in new customers than live music. But when former rock star Jake Keller swaggers through the doors to apply for the weekend gig, she knows she’s in trouble. Addie instantly recognizes him—his posters were plastered all over her bedroom walls in high school—he’s all bad boy...exactly her type and exactly what she doesn’t need.

Jake Keller walked away from the limelight five years ago and yearns to return to what’s always driven him: the music. If he gets to work for a smart-mouthed, funny-as-hell bombshell, all the better. But talking Addie into giving him the job is far easier than persuading her that he wants more than a romp in her bed. Just when she begins to drop her walls, Jake’s past finally catches up with him.

Will Addie be torn apart once again or will Jake be able to convince her to drown out her doubts and listen to her heart?

I love Kristen Probys books and all of her characters.  Her series always have interconnecting story lines and all of the characters are always popping up in each others books.  I am sure this series will be no different.  We meet all 5 of the women that own Seduction in this book, even though it is really Addison's story.  Addison is a hilarious. successful, smart and sexy woman and I loved her.  This author has always had a way of making me love her characters.  And Jake is a sexy rock star who is also a but of a dirty talker, which I am a sucker for.  This author is great at creating alpha male heroes who are also tender and loving!!  
This book releases on April 12 and is available now for pre order!  It is a sexy sweet story that I adored.  I highly recommend it.
