    Review: Stripped Bare

    Stripped Bare Stripped Bare by Heidi McLaughlin
    My rating: 3 of 5 stars

    Full disclosure: While I enjoyed this story for the most part, I did have some issues with it and if you read on, you'll discover exactly what those issues were.

    Ever read a book where you liked the story, at least its premise, but couldn't stand the characters?



    For me, Stripped Bare was one of those books. Every time one of the characters had something to say... I... just... couldn't... deal.



    It could just be me. Maybe it is. Who knows? I have a low tolerance for a-holes and dingbats so that could be it.

    Fin was/is a manwhore, greedy, cold, calculating, rude, and prides himself on being respectful and considerate while being incorrigible and inconsiderate. This man was a walking talking mass of contradictions. I scrounged each page looking for something about him to like and it wasn't until I got to the end of the story... the freaking end!! ... that I found his one redeeming moment.

    As for Macey, I dug deep to find a modicum of affection for her. She was a huge disappointment. I neither liked or respected her but I didn't hate her either. It just bothered me that she created the situation she was in and how she dealt with it. Being a single mom isn't the end of the world and it doesn't stop most of us for reaching for the sky. I pulled up my bootstraps and found myself an edu-ma-cation in order to provide my children with the best possible life I could. I did it all on my own and I still do it all on my own. So when a fictional character can't find it within herself to achieve or aspire to be more than a minimum wage earning contribution to her child's life, my sympathies are pretty thin. I'm not saying there aren't circumstances that prevent some moms from moving mountains, but this fictional character had no excuse. But that's just my opinion. Anyhow, her daughter's unconditional love for her is what got me through.

    Overall, this was a hot and steamy second chance romance between a man with a closed-off heart and a woman with a hopeful soul. If you can get past the negative qualities of the characters, then more power to you and I hope you enjoy the heck out of this story!!

    Genre: Contemporary Romance

    Anastasia:

    Here’s the first thing you should know: this is not a fairytale.
    Happily-ever-afters are fables, and Prince Charming is a sweet little lie.

    I know all this because he taught me.

    Once upon a lifetime ago, the rich, arrogant, sinfully gorgeous, and tragically broken dark prince of the Hamptons was my tormentor. My darkness, my shameful attraction, my all-consuming, forbidden temptation.

    I hate Sebastian Crown because nine years ago, for one night, I was stupid enough to think I loved him. And I’ve been paying for it ever since.

    Except now, he needs me to help him save his empire.

    …And he’s not taking no for answer.

    Review: Entwined

    Entwined Entwined by J.C. Harroway
    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    Jess and Morgan were high school sweethearts and shared a once-in-a-lifetime and all-encompassing type of love. Tragically, her father died and she was overwhelmed with guilt and grief and fled to London. Miscommunication, misdirection, and malice contributed to Jess staying away for five years. But now her cousin and best friend is getting married and she refuses to disappoint her by not attending. Even if it means coming face-to-face with the pain of the past. Even if it means trying to be around Morgan again, as he's the best man and she's still very much in love with him. She can definitely survive the next couple of days. But will her heart?

    I'm a sucker for a great second chance romance and Entwined delivered. These two characters suffered so much pain and unfortunately most of it was unnecessary. However, it was real and the author did a remarkable job of exploring that pain and moving her characters through it. It wasn't easy and thankfully it wasn't made to appear superficial. I only wish Jess' mother had some sort of comeuppance for the part she played in the misery.

    Review: Love a Boss

    Love a Boss Love a Boss by Logan Chance
    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    This isn't a standalone. In order to understand the players and the plot, I strongly suggest you read Like a Boss first. This book picks up virtually where the last one left off and Penny's got some 'splaining to do. Theo's heart has been crushed and I couldn't help but sympathize with him regarding the circumstance Penny has placed him in. And while I didn't like Penny (AT ALL) because she insisted on keeping secrets from Theo and playing her games, rest assured that there is a happy ending and I was happy that despite all of the angst to be had, Theo got his heart's desire.

    Review: Like a Boss

    Like a Boss Like a Boss by Logan Chance
    My rating: 3 of 5 stars

    This book was really good for a debut and made for an interesting read. What started off as a one-night stand quickly developed into a sexy second chance romance between a boss and his employee. And then there was a surprising twist that I'm still not sure how to take. Left with one heck of a cliffhanger, I'm just glad I have book two waiting on my kindle!

    From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

    It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.

    Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

    I didn’t think he’d call me back.

    I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.

    Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.

    Review: Elusive by L.A. Fiore

    Elusive Elusive by L.A. Fiore
    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

    Oh. My. Gosh! I want a pirate of my very own!! One exactly like Kace would be more than sufficient.

    Kace was orphaned during his infancy and grew up knowing a life of struggle, poverty and hardship. He eventually found family when he became best friends with Snake at the tender age of 14. Having someone at his side didn’t necessarily make his life any easier. He was still vulnerable, still poor, still finding his meals out of the trash, but at least he was no longer alone. Time and circumstance and the serendipitous meeting of more lost boys created a crew and these men made the best pirates EVER!!

    Willow came from an affluent two-parent household but she always came second to their love for hunting ancient artifacts. Her parents were famous treasure hunters (think Indiana Jones) and left her alone for the majority of her upbringing. She had a very loving grandfather, who encouraged her to follow her dreams and her heart, but loneliness was a constant companion, a dark shadow that literally haunted her every step.

    Their lives change drastically after a chance encounter while Willow is vacationing in Cancun. Through her, Kace witnessed a new normal, one that he wanted to hold onto with both hands. Their connection was instantaneous and was proven to be stronger than time or distance. Willow was innocence, grace, goodness and mercy. Kace was brooding, dangerous and extremely sexy. They each fit like the missing half of the other’s soul.

    With Elusive , the author gave us a story full of intrigue, suspense and adventure. She also gifted us with an epic love that spanned years. One chance meeting cemented a bond between Kace and Willow and lived within their souls forever. Even when they thought they would never see each other again their hearts refused to let go. It’s a story that makes me believe that dreams can come true, that there is always a reason to hope for a love of a lifetime. It’s a story that made the journey seem not only real, but absolutely worthwhile.

    L.A. Fiore is a brilliant storyteller. She took a relatively undiscovered concept, at least in the romance world - pirates - and made it all her own. I’m sure other romance authors will one day write their own pirate stories, but I can promise you that they won’t have as profound an effect on me as this trailblazer did.

    Blurb:
    Oh, the foolish games we play.
    The moment I was gifted a test drive of the luscious Sage Blackwood, I knew she was mine. I was broken, half a man, until she pieced me back together. She changed my world forever with her magnetic humor and hot body. Sage is an expert of subterfuge. Her logic overrules her cravings. It doesn’t matter if she feels the same; I’m the master at games and puzzles. And I’ll win this game in the end. I always do.
    Oh, the tangled webs we weave.
    Pushing the wrong buttons is Lukas Roger’s forte. Except he presses all the right ones when he’s sending me to heaven with each and every delicious touch. But I can't give him what he wants. I will never give myself completely to another. It just doesn’t work in my world. I bury those dreams deep. My job connected us. Now this powerful bond scares me. My body desires to cling to what Lukas offers, while my mind is telling me to run away.
    Far.
    Fast.
    Forever.
