Our Review: 

Counting On You is a fun romance with some surprise twists at the end. 

Vicky is a bit of a stalker. She is being strung along by a boyfriend who claims he only took out the restraining order against her because his family made him do it! Vicky is innocent, naive, unworldly and extremely gullible! She ends up in LAA Rehab, Love Addicts Anonymous. 

“You hit me pretty well when you stepped out in that red dress.” He gives me another glance and shakes his head. “Wow. I just want to strip you naked.” 

My heart skips a beat. 

Shit. 

He did not say that!” 

Kaiden has spent the last year trying to win a bet. A bet that he could sleep with 365 women in a year. Just before he can complete his goal, he gets sent to rehab for Sex Addiction.  

“I thought you were addicted to me.” As much as I’m addicted to you I want to add, but for some reason, can’t.”

This was my first book by these authors and I look forward to discovering more.

“Love is not an accident. It’s a verb. You don’t wait for it to happen. You make it happen. And I have every intention of making you mine.”

From New York Times Bestselling Author, J.C. Reed, and Jackie Steele comes a new standalone novel.
Sharing an apartment should be easy, right? And it’s only for six weeks.
That’s what I thought before I found out that my new roommate is female. And wow. Vicky Sullivan is unlike any woman I’ve ever met. She’s hot as sin, and crazy. Definitely not my kind of crazy, but too hot to pass up. There’s something about her that makes me rage with want. I don’t like her, but obviously my d*ck does. And what he wants, he gets.

Six weeks…Living together shouldn’t be too hard…Until my best friend challenges me to a bet…I make it my mission to make her mine. 

There’s only one problem.

I have to break…Every. Single. Rule. And did I mention she’s completely off-limits?

It’s too late to say no.

A sizzling and romantic, enemies-to-lovers romp with steam!

Authors’ note – Counting On You is a full-length, standalone novel with no cliffhanger.

TEASER:

“Stop it, Kade. This is not the time for jokes.” In spite of her attempt at looking annoyed, her lips twitch.

“Why not?”

“You’re making me angry.” She grabs the handle but doesn’t open the door. I press my open palm against the door, planting myself before her. 

“If making you angry is the only way to make you realize you’re wasting your time with this guy, then it’s worth it.”

“Why do you even care?” Her voice is soft now.

I don’t understand the anger I’m feeling or the fact that I do care.

I don’t understand why I need to protect her while shaking some sense into her.

“I would hate seeing you wasting your time over this loser. I hate knowing that this piece of shit makes you feel bad about yourself.” I grab her chin, forcing her to look at me, fighting the sudden urge to kiss her. “No woman deserves to feel the way you do. I don’t know what his fucking problem is, but Vicky, I do know that you’re hot. I have to restrain myself around you, and it’s not easy.”

“You find me attractive?” she whispers, her eyes wide.

“Yeah. Without a doubt.” I brush my fingertips over her lips, tracing the contours. “You’re weird but sexy as hell. Do you have any idea what you’re doing to me? How much you leave me in want? I don’t think you do.”

Diane’s Review:
Sexiest Dad Alive is the third book in the Knight Fashion series. It can be read it as a standalone and is the first book by this author that I’ve read.

Josh and Isla are friends and roommates. But just as Isla prepares to see if things could develop into more than a friendship, Josh starts to pull away and seems to have a secret that he is keeping from his closest friends. And it is quite a big secret.

Sexiest Dad Alive is a super angsty story as Isla and Josh have to navigate many obstacles in their way as they search to find out if they can have a happily ever after with each other.

“Life isn’t a fairytale. Sometimes you have to fight for happily ever after. And sometimes you just have to let go. But sometimes in the end happily ever after finds you again.”

There were a few times that I just wanted to yell at both Josh and Isla to grow a backbone and stand up for themselves, but they eventually learn that they must support each other in order for both of them to be strong. This story has a great cast of characters, friends and colleagues that may come alive a bit more for someone who has read the other books in this series.

It was a simple offer.
I invited Isla to rent a room in my five thousand square foot home. Plenty of rooms and plenty of space. But the second she moved in, I knew I was in trouble. I could handle wanting her when there was distance between us, but once we started to play house, all my pent up desire started knocking down walls.
That was my first mistake of many.
The private investigator I hired to track down my ex found her not far from where I live. I should have locked my past behind me, but something urged me to find her. I’m glad I did. But our union left me with a situation to be reckoned with.
When a new fire is lit and old flames rekindle, one will have to burn out.
The decisions I’ll have to make won’t be easy.
No matter what I choose, my heart will break.

Diane’s Review:
When a misunderstanding clouds Jude’s judgement, Vivian’s world gets turned upside down. Jude sets out single-mindedly to fight for Vivian’s forgiveness. With so much else to deal with and trying to get back to work and back in full health, she is pretty quick to reward his efforts and allow Jude into her life.

“Nothing is going to change the fact that I hurt you. Not a goddamn word I say is going to justify my actions. All I can do is tell you I’m sorry and mean it. Because I do mean it. The pain in your eyes right now is killing me, knowing I put it there. I’m so sorry I hurt you.”

Jude is the second book in The Saints series. I really loved the first book, Riddick and went into this one hoping for the same feeling, but didn’t fall in love with this one as quickly. I am very glad I gave it a chance, though and continued reading. I really enjoyed the suspenseful storyline of the second half of the book!

“I wouldn’t change a thing about the woman who makes me see a future full of happiness. A woman who will drive me insanely mad with want simply because I’m in her presence. A woman who cares about the simple things in life.”

Jude is a glasses wearing computer nerd who is also a dirty talking macho alpha police officer!! The author did a great job of blending the sides of his personality into a great character. Definitely a swoon-worthy hero!

Jude
I faked my way long enough by keeping my mouth shut, painting a fake smile on my face and focusing hard on my job.
I quit going out to find that random piece of ass.
Not a one of them would stand up to her anyway.
She hates me, loathes me even.
Little does Vivian Shepard know I’ve got more tricks up my sleeve than she will ever begin to imagine to get her to change her mind, to get my chance.
I’m not giving up.
I want her, and by God, I’ll fight as dirty as I can get to have her.
No matter what!
Vivian
Of course, I knew it was a one- night stand.
It’s was the perfect night before all hell broke loose to be quite honest.
Drinking, talking and flirting.
One I relished in as I tried to gravitate my mind back to solid ground after soaring so high I could feel the rush of flying.
My stomach dipped, my heart fluttered, and my toes curled inward and then I splattered to the hard surface of the ground.
Jude Westbrooke opened his big fat mouth.
He ruined it, ruined me, ruined it all.

“We need to talk.” I finally manage to pull away from her. My eyes are diverting from her mouth to her soaked t-shirt. “Fuck,” I snarl. Her pink nipples are standing out against the wet fabric, which is white and very thin. My gaze darkens the further south it goes, down to her tiny little pink and white shorts that are saturated. Rivulets of water are dripping down her long, toned legs, dripping off her silky skin to mix with the giant puddle on the floor.
“You look absolutely beautiful, Red.”
“What in the hell are you doing here, Jude? It’s a monsoon out there. And what gives you the right to barge into my house and attack me like that, anyway? Have you lost your mind?” She shoves me back a step and climbs off the counter, nearly falling on her ass in the process. Slippery when wet, baby! The spell is broken.
“I didn’t lose my mind. You fucking stole it. I can’t stop thinking about you, and no matter what you try and say, I know damn well you don’t want me to. So we are talking, goddamn it!” I yell.
“Well, that sure didn’t sound like talking to me. And take your mind back. I don’t want it.” Liar.
“No, darling, it wasn’t talking. What that was, was several months of pent-up frustration over wanting more of what you gave me the night we met. What that was, was me telling you that I’m not a man who walks away from something he knows is rare. You want to give me my mind back, then let me give you something more to stew about in that pretty head of yours. You are so full of shit if you think for one second I’m buying the piss-ass excuse that you don’t want me. And before your head gets all rattled and you start spewing more of your shit, I’m not talking about sex, Vivian. I’m talking about you. The woman I know is in there, but is too fucking stubborn to let the best side of her out. I want that woman. The woman I met before I fucked shit up. The woman I want to ask out on a date. So, you know what? I’m here to tell you that once you decide to let that woman emerge, you give me a call.”
I turn to leave and grab the door handle. I’m so fucking mad she isn’t trying to stop me like she should that I could spit nails into this door. Hammer this goddamn thing shut.
“I’m telling you right the hell now, Vivian, that if you don’t call me, then you are wasting what I know for a goddamn fact would be the greatest gift given to me, which is you.”

#RockStarRomance Derek’s Thorn by Tara Lin Mossinghoff #HotDrummer

img_1012

3.5 Stars
Derek’s Thorn is an enjoyable rock star romance, but I had anticipated more edginess in a rock band book.
Derek is the drummer for the band Ashes to Ashes. He is trying to recover from a very bad break up and is of course wary.
Erin has crushed on Derek since high school days and when they meet up again at one of his concerts they renew their friendship. They slowly work to trust each other and to trust their own feelings.

“The butterflies in my stomach were in full force. The more time I had spent with Derek, the more I liked him. Part of that was getting to know him as a person. Another part was developing more feelings for him. The small crush I’d had on him was growing.”

There was really nice chemistry between all of the characters and I am looking forward to reading Nate’s story next.                     -Diane-
