Love by Numbers #6 – Standalone.

**********************************
Our Reviews:

 This is a book that just took up residence in my heart and will stay with me forever. Eight is a beautiful, heartbreaking but ultimately life affirming story. 

In one day, Josh is faced with the death of his wife and the birth of his son. He struggles with how to go on surviving and caring for his 2 small children without the woman who was his childhood sweetheart and first love. And Oh My Goodness I wanted to be understanding of Josh’s grief, but I alternated between wanting to hug him and slap him! 
“I feel like an interloper. Like someone has placed me inside the body of a man I once knew a long time ago, but they can’t see I’m not him. I’m a body snatcher and a fake. I’m not the Josh from before, and I won’t ever be him again because I was one-half of a whole. Now I’m one-half of nothing.”
Halle was given a chance to start her life over. She was working hard, keeping her head down and focusing on leaving all of her skeletons locked safely in a closet. The last thing she wanted was to get mixed up with someone who had complications of his own. 
“As his seed spills from my body, my shame falls from my eyes. Both soak my white cotton sheets and stain them with the evidence of my stupidity.” 
 Josh’s family are so amazing! They stood by him and didn’t let him push them away. Their Mom is just so wise and strong!!! Ivy is the star of this book! Even the hardest heart would melt for her! I really loved how the family found a way to celebrate life on Arthur’s birthday. 

“My heart thuds painfully, my chest constricting with both love and sadness for my perfect little girl. She lost her mother forever, lost her father for a little while and is now afraid of losing anyone else, even if only for a few hours.” 

I loved every word of this amazing story! Eight is the 6th book in the Love by the Numbers series but can be read as a standalone. 
“Life is complicated, ugly and often messy, but it’s also beautiful too.” 
5 Stars!

Review #2

You know those books that hold your heart well this one holds my soul. I felt EVERY word of this story in my bones. It’s a story of new beginnings and healing. However healing is never easy. Sometimes it really isn’t about the ending but it’s about the journey you take to get there that matters more. 
“Is this what’s between us? A connection that has no name only melody.”
“She opens. I take. She yields. I worship.”
“His lips spoke without words. His caress contained a promise of more, but it’s all a lie.”
Both Josh and Halle are broken beyond what any single person should ever be. They are just trying to move forward with their lives lugging their broken pieces along with them as they put one foot in front of the other. But life may have a bigger plan for them. What they have is beauty beyond what either of them could imagine ever facing again. It just might be to much for either or both of them to keep. 

If you only decide to pick up one book this year I recommend it be this one. E.S. Carter brings it with a bit of everything and lots of beauty to make a perfect book for you to shout from the rooftops YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK.

*******************************


I’m sorry for your loss.

Why do people say that?

When someone you love is taken from you, when a part of you dies along with them, you haven’t lost them like you would your car keys or mobile phone. They aren’t stuck down the side of the sofa or left in the ignition of your car for you to find later. You haven’t absentmindedly put them somewhere and forgotten. You will never lose them because they live in you.

The soul crushing hurt that burns your lungs with every breath you take comes from knowing where they are and not being with them.

The ugly and real definition of grief is being left behind.

I’m sorry they left you.

I’m sorry you are alone.

I’m sorry it hurts to breathe.

Loss; it doesn’t even compare.

She was my first love.

She is my last love.

I am an empty husk who pretends to be filled with enough love for those of us she left behind.

Our little girl and newborn son need me.

I am both mother and father now.

I am hollow and empty.

I am a shell.

So why does the girl with the face of an angel and eyes that mirror my emptiness, look at me like I’m her everything?
*Book #6 in the ‘Love by Numbers’ series. Can be read as a standalone.*

#NewRelease Counting On You by J.C. Reed #FreeOnKU #ContemporaryRomance 

★★ COUNTING ON YOU is LIVE! ★★ Only $2.99 or Free on KU


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. 

3.5 Stars

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.”

#NewRelease When Life Happened by @JewelE_Ann #Standalone 


When Life Happened, an all-new standalone romance fromJewel E. Ann is now LIVE!

Our Review: 

This book is EVERYTHING! Leave all of your preconceived notions at the door when you step into this book! You may think you know how you feel about the subject, but author JEA had me doubting my own name and wondering if there were such a thing as black or white. 

“Gray. A terrible color. The murky water where sinners thrived. Parker Cruse was a hypocrite. A cheater. And in need of another change of underwear.” 

Parker is an amazing heroine. Quirky, funny, sweet and caring. At the start of the book, she is still reeling from a betrayal by her twin sister and former boyfriend/current BiL. Parker at times lets others walk all over her, but when she decides to strike back watch out!  

“No. I don’t hate cheaters. I’m sure there’s a lot of gray area when it comes to relationships and why we do what we do to connect, love, and navigate this crazy life.” 

This was a roller coaster ride of a story! But ultimately, I’ve found that I just need to dive in and trust that this author will take me on quite a ride then bring me out at the end feeling better for the journey.  

I loved every twist and turn in this awesome book! 5 Stars!

EXCERPT:

She drove into the Honey, seeing the parking lot empty except for Aryas’s black Cayenne and a black GMC SUV, feeling that hunger grow.
Right.
Fine.
Fun and done.
All good.
She grabbed the handles of her small bag before she opened the door and threw her leg out.
As instructed (by Aryas), she parked close to and approached the back door to the club.
As expected, it was open.
She moved through the halls, keeping centered and focused so as not to have any kind of freakout that the last time she was there, she’d been carried out by Aryas, beaten to hell and not giving a damn.
Because she might have been beaten to hell.
But the worst of it was, her heart had been broken.
She walked directly to Aryas’s playroom, known as the red room since it was decorated in reds, and the opaque shades that could be drawn down over the wall of windows to black out what was inside were the only shades in any of the rooms that weren’t black, they were red.
As she approached, she saw the red shades were drawn down.
She kept her gait steady.
It had been a year and the last scene she’d had was a bad one. She’d been assaulted at the same time she’d had a relationship end very, very badly with a man she’d thought she’d loved and was considering spending the rest of her life with.
That happened.
A year ago.
This was now.
It was just a look-over anyway. It might be she wouldn’t like what she saw. Or he wouldn’t. And then giving any headspace to worrying what came after that was just a waste.
She was a Domme.
She’d trained under Mistress Sixxand Mistress Amélie, the two finest Dommes Evangeline had ever had the honor to see at play.
And before Kevin, even if she’d only been in her late twenties, she was one of the most sought-after Dommes at the Honey.
Now she was just thirty years old and she made good money. She took care of herself. She was successful. Educated. She wasn’t hard to look at. She had her own style in looks, clothes (and play) that she was honing to perfection.
She could do this.
She totally could do this.
She opened the door, stepped in and saw him.
Oh my.
She was so totally going to do this.
She closed the door behind her, dropped her bag and stood right where she was.
Aryas’s red room, known as his because this was mostly where he took his slaves, looked more like an opulent boudoir. Plush. Sumptuous. Heavy, carved furniture. Big, posted bed dressed in red and topped at headboard and ceiling with mirrors. Candelabrums everywhere.
No candles had been lit right then. The scene was not set, only red-shaded table lamps here and there were illuminating the space.
It still gave it a feel.
And that feel was good.
But more, the man before her was amazing.

About Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning. 
Nothing’s changed.
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up. 
And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

#NewRelease Outwait @LisaSuzanne24 #ContemporaryRomance #5Stars

Outwait by Lisa SuzanneGenre: Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: June 1, 2017


 My Review:

I really enjoyed Outwait. It was my first book by Lisa Suzanne. I loved the slow-burn feel of the start of this story. Carson is a playboy. He is on the outside a self-assured, successful businessman, but underneath unhappy with his job, but doing everything to keep his family happy and avoid confrontation. 

“I’m trying so hard to do the right thing by you. I need to kiss you. I need to feel you.” His eyes darken. “I need to fuck you like I need air to breathe, but I won’t touch you until I know you’re only mine.”

Sylvie is learning that her strong father is battling illness while trying to run his company. She attempts to stop Carson King’s company from taking over her family’s business. 

“He’s tearing apart my family business without a damn care in the world. He’ll move on to the next company after he hurricanes his way through mine. He’ll leave destruction in his wake, and he’ll just keep padding his bank account with more money while putting people I love and care about out of their jobs.”

As someone who watched the effects of Parkinson’s cause her own dad’s body to fail him, this part of the story really tore at my heart! 

“How am I supposed to watch my dad—my hero—as his body starts to fail him?” She’s whispering the words, and I know she’s speaking her biggest fears aloud for the first time.” 

Carson and Sylvie’s journey was definitely not a smooth one and their choices were never easy. I loved the story and was so glad that Carson decided to outwait any obstacles that were put in their way. 

“People come and go from our lives all the time. Why is it that some make a bigger impact than others?” 

**5Stars** -Diane-


Blurb:

From the outside, Carson King looks like he has it all. He’s next in line to be CEO of King Communications, he’s hot and single, and he’s at the center of the New York social scene. He has a different woman on his arm every night, and he wouldn’t change a single thing about his life…until Sylvie Baker storms into his boardroom.

Sylvie Baker actually does have it all. She balances a successful career with the perfect boyfriend—a man she plans to marry someday. She wouldn’t change a single thing about her life…until Carson King challenges everything with one simple confession.
Sylvie is intent on fighting her feelings. Carson’s convinced it’s just a waiting game.
But how long is he willing to wait for her?

#ComingSoon The Farthest Edge (Honey #2) by Kristin Ashley #EroticRomance @KristenAshley68 

Go to THE FARTHEST EDGE and order your copy today!

Our Review:

The Farthest Edge is the second book in the erotic Honey series. It can be read as a standalone. I loved the first book, The Deep End, but loved this one even more. 

The Hero of T F E is reminiscent of KA’s Unfinished Heroes. A man who has no past and believes that there is no real hope for his future beyond the vengeance he seeks. Unlike the hero in The Deep End who as an alpha, struggles with his submissive nature, Branch embraces the 2 sides of himself. He is looking only for release with no strings.

“But he needed a firm hand. 

She knew it to her soul. 

And Evangeline had one.” 

Evangeline has put aside her past with The Bee’s Honey BDSM club and her friends there and immersed herself in work ever since she was the victim of a violent episode. She is pulled back in when the owner of The Honey, Aryas, asks her to do him a favor. 

“Just that this guy is unbreakable. There’s no edge for him any Domme can get anywhere near to push him off and that’s what he’s looking for. Being taken to the farthest edge and shoved right the f*ck over.”

 Evangeline is a strong heroine. A Domme who isn’t afraid to show her softer side. As soon as she realizes her feelings for Branch are more than just Domme/Sub, she is intent on healing him and winning him. 

“I get the score. Don’t you worry. But don’t you underestimate me either. Because I get what I want and if I want you, in the end, you’re going to give yourself to me.” 

This is such an amazing story. It takes a super HOT erotic story and weaves it in seamlessly with a classic emotional KA storyline. It had a few scenes that were so powerful and touching that I just wanted to highlight the whole scene to go back to and read over and over. The Farthest Edge is one of those books that will stay with me long after I’ve finished reading. I think I now have a new favorite KA book! 

6 Stars

excerpt:

He knew this was her playroom before he’d entered but right then he saw that she didn’t hide it under sheets and tarps, just behind the shutters.

Branch shifted the light around, seeing a horse, a bench, a table, all of them good quality. It cost a mint to outfit a good playroom and she didn’t make do. She’d been investing. Making smart purchases that would look good, stand strong during play and last a while.

Fashionable sink in the corner set in an attractive wood vanity, two matching tall, slim cupboards on each side.

He moved there, looked through the vanity and cupboards. Thick towels. Washcloths. Wet wipes. Soap. Bottles of foam anti-bacterial. Cleaning supplies. A large box of condoms. A little basket filled with some cosmetics—powder, lipsticks, gloss. Another filled with first-aid supplies—Band-Aids, bottles of antiseptic, tubes of ointment, gauze, cotton.

He closed the door to the cupboard he was inspecting, turned and shined the light around the room. Moving across the space, he noted hooks on the walls, in the ceiling, eyes in the floor, all looking sturdy. Whoever put them in might have wondered why or he’d been hers. But whoever that was knew what they were doing.

There was a tall cabinet and a large dresser across the room, both in the wood that made up the vanity and the cupboards. It all matched, was heavy and dark but attractive, giving the space the definite feel of playroom, not a dungeon. It was stylish and handsome, even warm, somewhere you’d want to stay awhile.

He didn’t think on his last thought as he opened the top cupboard doors of the cabinet and shined the light in, feeling what he found there in his dick.

Cats. Whips. Switches. Flogs. Paddles. Some straps. Some harnesses. All hanging from hooks. All well organized and well maintained. All also excellent quality. Not many, but again, quality, not quantity, was what she was clearly going for.

He closed the doors and crouched down to the two drawers at the bottom of the cabinet, opening them. Top one had silk ropes, some chains, shackles, cuffs. The bottom drawer was full of leather straps with cinches attached.

Branch straightened, moved to the dresser. Nothing littered the top, so he opened the first drawer.

What he found there made his balls draw up.

Carefully placed in what looked like purple silk-lined, custom-made grooves were her toys.

Plugs. Cocks. Vibrators. The first two in an impressive range of lengths, girths and shapes. If they had them, remotes were placed at the side of the toy they controlled. There was also a complicated cock ring, rabbit ears at the front for clit stimulation, and a strap that would lead between the balls to a bullet that could be inserted in the anus, all of it obviously vibrated—triple the fun.

She like ass.

Not many of her kind didn’t.

He didn’t think on that either.

Our Review: 

Just a Little Junk is a blend of RomCom with suspenseful murder mystery…doesn’t sound like it would work, but it does. 

Jo wakes up hungover and discovers a dead man in the trunk of her car. Her first action is to ask the help of her neighbor and friend, Archer. 

“She was his friend’s little sister –off limits. He was her brother’s sexy out-of-her-league friend –untouchable.” 


 Archer’s advice is that together they try to figure out her missing memories of the past night before going to the police. He has compelling reasons and Jo goes along with the plan. But is not long before Jo’s situation snowballs from bad to ‘things can’t get any worse’ to even WORSE!

“Look, we’re going to go in, act normal. Remember to smile. You frown all the time.”

“I do not”

“You’re frowning right now.” 

“Because there’s a dead body in my trunk!”

“Blah, Blah, Blah”

The story only gets wilder as it goes along and there are twists at many of the turns! Lots of humor and fun banter. But woven throughout this wild story is a growing awareness and connection between Jo and Archer. 

“It was their nature to tease and bicker and banter, but in reality, she was terrified. These were serious bad guys, shit was going down. Archer could get hurt, or worse. Just the thought of it made her heart crack and splinter. What would she do without him in her life?” 

This story really took me by surprise. Somehow it was exactly what I expected and at the same time, nothing like I expected. A thoroughly enjoyable read! 

4 Stars!

Jodi Morgan is having a bad weekend.

 After partying a little too hard, she wakes up with a monster hangover and almost no recollection of the night before. So imagine her surprise when she looks in her trunk and instead of finding a spare tire, she finds the last guy she’d danced with before blacking out.

Who is he? How did he get in there? How did he die? And oh dear lord, did she kill him!?
When her older brother’s best friend offers to help, things start looking up. They’ve known each other since she was thirteen, and ten years later, he still treats her like a little kid – surely, committing felonies has to trigger some sort of spark. Together, they wind up going on an adventure that takes them all over Los Angeles. From raves to penthouses to strip clubs. All in the search for the answer to her question.
Who is the dead guy in my trunk!?
*Warning: This book contains some dark humor, a lot of witty banter, and two characters making more bad decisions than good ones. Also contains adult themes, language, and graphic sexual activity.

AUTHOR BIO

 Crazy woman from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since … forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

 I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t understand me.

 Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

#RockedUp #RockStar #SurprisePreggo #HusbandWifeTagTeam

🎶 Rocked Up 🎶 
Lael Ramsey is the daughter of a big music producer. She has always dreamed of and imagined herself on stage playing bass with the band ‘And Then’. She feels a connection with lead singer Brad Snyder and his music. To her it seems bigger than her schoolgirl crush. 

Brad Snyder started with nothing but a dream and a guitar. He is not a typical bad boy rock star, but rather serious about his music and his career. 
“There haven’t been that many women in my life, but they all have something in common. My mother gave me away, Miss Sugar practically sold me to Ronald, and then there’s Lindsay, who only wants to see me when I have a song in the top 40. It leaves me wondering, could it be me? Strip away my celebrity and fame—am I just a lost motherless loser with an oversized yellow t-shirt and shoes that are too big?” 

When Lael’s father (Brad’s mentor) hands her a big break, she wants to prove she can earn her own spot. But the temptation of her long time crush might prove distracting. 
“I can’t pretend it didn’t happen. It’s seared in my brain, in my soul. His kiss branded me as his. For now. Forever.”
The start of the story felt smooth and a bit ‘slow burn’… until it wasn’t, and then it got hot, hot, hot! The relationship ramped up with the heat. Next thing I knew I was lost in the story again rooting for this sweet couple to find a happily ever after! 
“I swear I could do anything to him, say anything (and from the way I was blabbering, I’m pretty sure I have) and it wouldn’t matter. Brad can take what I’m giving. And I can take what he’s giving. And I want more of it. I’m a greedy little girl like that.” 
I loved the way the story ended! It left a smile on my face!

Our Review: 

Retaliate is the 3rd book in the Sin City Outlaws series. It can be read as a standalone. The story is dark and edgy. It is gritty and raw as an MC romance should be!

Felix is VP of the Sin City Outlaws MC. He hates authority and cops in particular. He is cocky, loves his lawless lifestyle and is Trouble with a capital T!

Alessandra is a tough cop, but has begun to think that she isn’t meant for this job. She doesn’t always go by the book or the letter of the law.
“Dark tangled hair, brown lost eyes, and she’s wearing nothing but my shirt as she straddles my lap in black lace panties. She’s the good girl gone bad. My kryptonite. Her brown hair falls in her face, her lips parting as smoke rolls out of her mouth drifting around her like the devil just granted me a wish in return for my soul.”

Felix uncovers a secret that Alessandra doesn’t even realize that she is keeping and their lives are turned upside down.

“I won’t love you. I’m not capable of the emotion,” he admits. Tilting my cramped neck to the side, I narrow my brows. “Well, I won’t love you back,”

I loved the gritty, edgy way this story is told. Starting out SO very dark and only softening around the edges enough to allow us to fall in love with our strong hero & heroine! ❤
-Diane-   4.5 Stars!!

Blurb
Being the Vice President of the Sin City Outlaws Motorcycle Club comes with its perks.
Respect, power, and easy women whenever I want. I have control in everything I do.
Because of that, I wasn’t expecting my president to put me on babysitting duty, and on a female cop of all fucking people. I kill law enforcement, not protect them.

Alessandra pretends to be the good-guy hiding behind that shiny badge. But I see the darkness dancing in her eyes, and it draws me to her in the worst way. I want to devour that act of innocence, pull her over the line of justice, and into my bed.

I just wasn’t expecting the handful of secrets I got behind that badge of honor I ripped from her chest. Because now, we’re retaliating against a common enemy together.

Excerpt
“So, you came here to what, let loose?” I ask suggestively, lust hanging from the tip of my tongue.

She looks up through hooded eyes, her hands fidgeting with the hem of her shirt.

Taking a small step, I invade her space. Using my finger, I tuck it firmly under her chin making her look me in the eyes. God, she’s so fucking soft to touch, my hands itch to take advantage of her body and soul. That’s what I do, I devour innocent women, and scar their souls to the point they’re damaged goods.

“Were you going to fuck one of my men tonight, Alessandra?” I ask hastily.

Her throat bobs as she swallows, fire igniting her eyes as she pulls away. She’s a pistol and not the kind you love and shine every day with care. More like the kind you’re scared to use because it may backfire on you at any minute.

“So what if I was? Why do you care?” She raises a challenging brow, her voice sharp. A burning sensation combusts in my chest thinking about her riding one of my guy’s dicks.

“I forbid you to open your legs to any of my brothers, do you understand?” My rash decision comes from an unknown place. An insatiable hunger beading at the tip of my dick.

Her jaw drops, and her hands curl into fists.

“Who do you think you are to dictate who I screw?” she scowls.

My temples pound with annoyance and anger, done with this back and forth.

Leaning down my lips a hair’s length away from her face, I intimidate her to the point she looks away and purses her lips.

“Maybe you didn’t get the memo, Blue Bird, but now that Zeek is playing daddy… I run this fucking city. Therefore, I say who you fuck, and don’t fuck.”

Her chocolate eyes snap to mine, and I know I have her full attention. Which I want, I want her to look at me, to really see me. All of me.

#NewRelease The Bohemian and The Businessman (Story Sisters #1) by Katy Regnery #BlueberryLane #Swoon4Shane

Our Review:

The Bohemian and The Businessman was my first Blueberry Lane story. It can definitely be read as a standalone, but it hooked me in and now I want to go back and see what I’ve been missing!

Priscilla Story is the artsy free spirited Story sister. She has been a bit of a wanderer. She returns home when she finds herself in a situation where she is going to need help from her family who in the past have not been extremely supportive.

Priscilla’s dad is ridiculously old fashioned and a complete jerk on top of that. He is looking for someone to take over the helm of his business but insists that it must be a man who marries one of his daughters.

Priscilla’s back story is a bit heartbreaking. She really just puts the past behind her and goes on, but the repercussions show up in everything she does!!

“You say whatever you want to say…You don’t have to censor yourself or worry about my reaction. It’s okay with me. All of it. Anything.”

Shane is practical and looking for a way to advance his career. He was dating Priscilla’s sister, Margaret Story but it was a relationship of convenience. Priscilla offers a proposition to Shane that will help them both get what they think they want.

“My feelings for you are so…new, but they’re so strong and wild and real.” He gulped. “They’re real. I’ve never felt like this before.”

At times I really felt like Shane needed to man up and alpha up a bit, but when Priscilla was under duress he came through for her. I loved the strength of Priscilla and have to admit that I did end up swooning a bit for the romantic side of Shane!                 4.5 Swoony Stars!!

Blurb:

Priscilla Story, the self-proclaimed “wild child” of the straight-laced Story clan, has always had a knack for getting herself trouble. Except this time, her “growing problem” is going to require a Daddy sooner than later…or she can kiss her inheritance good-bye.

Shane Olson, who previously dated Priscilla’s sister, Margaret, isn’t opposed to a marriage of convenience for the sake of furthering his business interests, but Priscilla – with her wild ways – is just about the last woman he’d choose to marry.

In order to make the marriage look convincing, they end up having to spend more time together than they’d originally planned. When rolling stone, Priscilla, who lives by the seat of her muu-muu, and seriously-ambitious Shane, who’s had his whole life planned since he was eleven, start falling for each other, it’s going to take a whole lot of compromise for this Bohemian and her Businessman to find their happily ever after.
