eARC Book review: Make Me Yours (Make Me #3) by Katee Robert


Available May 1 2019
eARC Provided by publisher for honest review

I didn’t get to be CEO of a New York tech company by chasing whims…or women. But when wildly beautiful, fiercely independent fitness instructor Becka Baudin caught my eye across a crowded wedding reception, my body reacted with a will of its own.

She wanted a sexy distraction—one night of lust in a glamorous hotel. And I was happy to oblige. Then, after the most amazing night of my life, she walked away—leaving me wanting so much more. I haven’t been myself since that night. My work is suffering. My social life is nowhere. All I think about, all I dream about, is her.

Three months later, she told me. A baby. My baby… I insisted she move into my Manhattan penthouse. Now I see her every day. I crave her every second. I long for her touch, her kiss, her body moving under mine. I know if I try to cage her she’ll fly away. How can I convince a wild thing to stay in my life, in my heart, forever?

Aaron and Becka meet at Becka's sisters wedding. Becka isn't into relationships but there's something about Aaron that attracts her. She does one night stands not relationships and Aaron is perfect for that. The next morning she slips away but Aaron can't get her out of his mind. Three months later she pops back up in his life with the news he's going to be a dad.  Becka's parents really messed her up but Aaron is determined to get into her heart. Becka doesn't make it easy. I came into this series late. I enjoyed the book even though Becka is a bit annoying at times it still was a enjoyable read.

eARC Book review: Crazy for Your Love (The Boys of Jackson Harbor #5) by Lexi Ryan


Available now!
eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley

A family wedding with a fake boyfriend, meddling parents, and an obsessive ex . . . What could go wrong? 

The only thing worse than being single at my sister’s wedding is finding out that my ex will be there too. Not just any ex—the guy everyone expected me to marry, the man I came to Jackson Harbor to escape.

Now I need a date, and fast. Enter Carter Jackson—the firefighter who’s dealing with an unwanted five minutes of fame ever since a shirtless photo of him saving a puppy went viral. He’s warding off propositions left and right, and he needs a fake relationship as much as I do.

Sweet and sexy, Carter is completely off-limits. See, I have a rule. A no heartache rule. Not only is Carter my friend and a known heartbreaker, but his job as a firefighter puts him in danger daily, and that’s something I just can’t handle. 

The commitment between us might be pretend, but the passion all too real. As crazy as it makes me, I have to keep Carter at an arm’s length. Even that might not be enough to spare my heart.

Teagan and Carter have been friends for the past four years but each secretly have been attracted to each other. Now Teagan needs a date to her sisters wedding. Enter Carter. I'm new to this series and author. This is a stand alone but i think reading the other books in the series would help a lot to understand some of what's going on in this book. Teagan and Carter both are hiding some significant secrets. Teagan's ex boyfriend is invited to the wedding. There is something there that terrifies Teagan and you're left wondering throughout the book what happened and why. I like the book but some of it was a little over the top and dramatic. If the two had just spent some time talking a lot of the drama might have been avoided.

eARC Book review: That Second Chance (Getting Lucky #1) by Meghan Quinn


Available May 7th 2019
eARC Provided by publisher

It was supposed to be an innocent night, celebrating my brother’s birthday. Nothing was supposed to go wrong. We’d vowed to be on our best behavior after all . . .

But it only took one rowdy night with my brothers to flip my world upside down. One unlucky encounter saddled us with a family curse and the promise of doomed relationships. I laughed it off immediately. “Yeah, right,” I thought. “A love curse. Ha!”

Boy, was I wrong.

Word spreads quickly in a town like mine; rumors about that night soon made us the most eligible yet untouchable bachelors in Port Snow, Maine. As a subject of endless gossip and speculation, I could kiss my dating life goodbye.

It would have stayed that way if Ren Winters, the new girl in town, hadn’t crashed into my life. Brave, beautiful, and smart—her vivacious thirst for a fresh start has given me hope that maybe, just maybe, I can have one too.

Everyone wishes for that second chance . . . but could this really be mine?

Griffin Knight and his brothers believe they are cursed after a trip to New Orleans. A love curse. It wasn't long after they were cursed Griffin's wife dies. Now  two years later Griffin meets Ren. Ren had had her own bad experience and she's moved to Griffin's town for new start. Griffin meets her when she wrecks her car when a moose runs out in front of her on her way in to town. This is a new author for me. I checked to be sure after i finished the book because i enjoyed it so much. I loved the Knight family.  The brothers and sister are awesome with each other and it feels natural. Griffin's love tragedy occurs when his wife passes away at a young age and he believes the love curse is real. Even if it isn't he feels he can't risk anyone else. Ren is irresistible though. No matter what he's drawn to her. The banter between Griffin and Ren is fun and flirty and while reading i imagined that this book would be awesome in audiobook version if it had the right narrator. You can't go wrong with this book and I am looking forward to the rest of the series as it comes out.
