ARC Review - Skinny Pants by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff!


BLURB:

From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff Comes a New, Standalone, Romantic Comedy, SKINNY PANTS.
(Book Three, The Happy Pants Caf√© Series) 

SHE ACCIDENTALLY CATFISHED THE PERFECT GUY. 
BUT WILL HE EVER LOVE THE REAL HER?

DR. JACK REED has been through hell. His wife cheated on him, broke his heart, and lied for years. But moving on isn’t easy, and it’s impossible to trust women again. Until he meets Macie, a nurse at his new hospital. There’s something about her honest heart that makes him want to fight to get his life back. 

NURSE MACIE FRANKLIN was always known as “the fat girl.” After decades of failed diets, she doesn’t dream of ever being anything but invisible to the opposite sex. One moment of weakness and two glasses of bubbly later, she’s in a steamy online chat with “Dr. J-Love” as the fake, size 8, bubbly Catrina.

Their passionate conversation convinces her it’s time to make big life changes. But when she goes to see Dr. Reed, the new amazing surgeon everyone’s talking about, it’s Dr. J-Love! And he’s way hotter in person.

They hit it off a second time as friends, but now Macie’s heart is at risk of falling hopelessly in love. Will he ever love the real her back?

MY REVIEW:

Skinny Pants is an EXCELLENT written romance! I got HOOKED on Macie and Jack! Just like Macie I couldn't tell if Jack was into Macie as a friend or wanted her as his woman until the very end and it was that confusion that made this story endearing. Normally you know RIGHT AWAY in a romance when a guy likes a woman but damn, for once I couldn't tell and it drove me batty in a very good way. I found myself flying through the book to find out EVERYTHING. And these characters...FANTASTIC! I liked them both a whole lot and the fact that there was both heat and humor made this book even more incredible. 

From the moment I started this book I knew I was going to be in for a real treat. Nothing gets me more interested in a romance than when the heroine is a curvy one. When I find that she is super sweet, fun, sassy, and just as thrown by Jack as I was it made me like her more because that connection was just...THERE! Its not often I find a connection with a heroine but Macie...yea I totally get her and LOVED HER. Jack is a WAY TO PERFECT MAN..except when it came to what he wanted and his feelings. I wanted to smack him more than once but hot damn, I also wanted to SHOVE him at Macie and say, this is a woman you just HAVE to have and in the end I am VERY pleased with how things turned out. I HIGHLY recommend this book!

Skinny Pants gets a DIDN'T SEE THAT COMING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! WELL DONE INDEED!

ARC Review - The Thief ( A Black Dagger Brotherhood Novel) by J.R. Ward!



BLURB:

New enemies rise from the shadows in the next novel of the New York Times bestselling paranormal romance series the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

Having allied themselves with the Band of Bastards, the Brotherhood is committed now more than ever to eradicating the Lessening Society. Recovering from their most recent battle against the last of the lessers, the Brotherhood comes to realize that the fight against their enemies is far from over. 

Throe, Xcor’s former second in command, is using an ancient tome to summon a new army engineered by a force more dangerous and evil than the Omega. 

And now the brothers of the Black Dagger Brotherhood will be tested both at home and on the battlefield.

MY REVIEW:

A STUNNING display of tear inducing drama, heart-in-your-throat action, and soul crashing romance, J.R. Ward won't be defeated with her latest Black Dagger Brotherhood novel, The Thief!

In The Thief we find a new threat blooming and it leaves us readers speechless and things that were once unclear become crystal clear and it leaves us in so much awe. There is only one author that continues to surprise me again and again with her amazing ability to weave a story with twists and a love so great, it leaves one feeling honored and completely smitten! I devoured this book in a few days and FLOVED every second of it along with every feeling it brought on to me. I NEVER tire of reading these BDB novels because Miss Ward's characters are unforgettable and the stories never cease to surprise and delight me. This is the kind of drama I come to crave and I am already anxious for the next one.

The Thief gets a BEST OF THE BEST FIVE SHOOTING STARS!

MY C0CK A DOODLE DOO IS ON STRIKE.

Yeah I know, I can’t believe it either. Years of perfect performance and now this traitor decides to get picky. And the only woman who gets him going is my co-worker. Rival, she-devil and my competition for the biggest ad account this side of the Atlantic.

If we want to win the hottest wedding designer in the world, we have to prove we understand his business. Love. Passion. Marriage. But it turns out Mya isn’t familiar with any of the above.

When I find out she’s never taken a trip to O-town, we make a little wager. Not only will I win the client, but I’ll prove to her that multiple O’s are not a myth.

We work together all day and fight between the sheets all night. But somewhere along the way I discover that winning isn’t enough.


I don’t just want to win.

MY REVIEW:

I found a SEXY FUNNY, ENTERTAINING ROMANTIC COMEDY IN BEG ME!  I love a romcom that can give me lots of laughs and super HOT times as well and I got them in GLORIOUS SPADES in this one! I loved...I mean LOVED FREAKING HARD the banter and the witty dialogue. And this is one of those books that you can easily and happily fall for the characters and the plot. 

I really like how real this book felt..yea it had a lot of humor and heat but it was very realistic and that added a lot to the story. The characters are very cool, interesting, and were a lot of fun to get to know. The sex is YUMMY and the romance right up my alley.

Evan Bishop is your typical hotshot doctor. Hardass, brooding, and all business. Instead of working on the family ranch, Evan broke the mold and became an ER doctor. He’s good with his hands—in more ways than one—smart as a whip and is the definition of God’s gift to women. Being a gentleman is in his Southern roots, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t flawed. Exclusive dating has never been a top priority and his tragic past makes him stay at arm’s length. Deciding to let loose for a wild night, he takes a page from the Bishop brother’s relationship book and hooks up with a mysterious girl he’ll never have to see again, which is perfect for this self-proclaimed bachelor. Emily Bell is a city girl through and through but is determined to get away from her family and past. All she wants is a fresh start and to make a name for herself in the medical field. No random hookups and no dating coworkers—that’s her new motto after being burned time and again. When she agrees to attend a wedding as a plus-one, she’s soon ditched and left to drink solo—but not for long. Mr. Suit is the ultimate temptation with his Southern charm, messy blond hair, and irresistible sex appeal. Everything about him screams bad news, but he makes her reconsider her rules just for one night. After all, some rules are made to be broken. They want the same thing—one night of passion then they’ll go their separate ways. No cuddling afterward. No next day phone calls. No awkward goodbyes. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll be obvious when they report to work on Monday morning. *A contemporary romance with a little Southern drama. This is book 2 in the Bishop Brothers series. Each book features a different brother and can be read as a complete standalone. HEA guaranteed!* Not suitable for readers under 18 due to adult language and sexual content.    

MY REVIEW:

OH STEAMY GALORE!! I never thought things get better...HOTTER than Alex but HOT DIGGETY DOG, it did with Evan! Oh I LOOOOVED Needing Him. 

A brilliant push and pull, this romance gives you a run for your money. My emotions were all over the place and I think I might of swooned and fanned myself more than once and the banter...oh it was GOOD! There was sizzle, charm, sweetness, heart and a sprinkle of drama that added to the book, made incredibly appealing. I am FLOOOOVING these Bishop Brothers but so far, I think Evan is going to remain my #1!

    I caved.   Fuck me. I caved, and now he thinks he’s in control and God’s gift to the world.   Fucking great.   I won’t let him manipulate me with sex. He must not be that smart if he thinks that’s actually going to work. I said those things in the heat of the moment and because I really needed to fucking come, but that doesn’t mean I meant it. Hell, I would’ve told him the sky was purple if that meant he’d give me what I needed.   Regardless, that was really damn hot. The way I yelled at him, and he yelled back, and then we just attacked each other. Every moment of our first night together has replayed in my head since it happened, but now… angry Evan is the one who will haunt me in my dreams. Angry Evan is hot and demanding and knows just how to tease the fuck out of me. I almost hate him for it. Except I could never hate a man who knows how to worship my body like he does.   But God, does he really have to be such a controlling asshole?   I scoop my scrubs and shoes off the floor and adjust my just-fucked hair. Once my top is on, I search for my panties. When I don’t find them on the floor, I shake out my scrub bottoms, but they aren’t there either. What the fuck?   Panic starts to surface at the realization that I lost my damn panties. Shit, shit, shit.   My pager beeps, and it’s painfully obvious I’m going to have to put my pants on without them. Quickly, I finish getting dressed and push my shoes on before grabbing my lab coat and the soiled shirt and flying out the door.   I throw Evan’s shirt in the trash before anyone can see me and ask questions.   Rushing to the nurses’ station for an update, I look around but don’t see any commotion or people scrambling like normal. “What’s going on? You paged me?” I ask, trying to catch my breath.   Fiona looks at me like I’ve gone crazy. She swallows and lowers her eyes before bringing them back up to look at me. She witnessed the heated argument back in the trauma room, and now she looks uncomfortable as hell. “Dr. Bishop asked me to page you. He wanted me to tell you that your break is over and to get back to work.” I can tell she’s uneasy delivering the news, but that doesn’t stop the anger from brewing inside me.   The vein in my forehead is about to burst, but I remind myself to play it cool. For all they knew, Evan sent me on the break to calm down, and now I’m the one looking like a slacker.   “Okay. Thanks.” I pinch my lips together to prevent any further words from spewing out of me. No one can know that Evan and I are…whatever the hell we are. Considering I came to this hospital to make a name for myself all on my own, the last thing I need is people thinking I sleep my way to the top.   Crap.   “Dr. Bell,” Evan barks from the other side of the room. He’s holding a pile of charts in his hands that are no doubt from the huge fire incident that just unfolded.   Taking a deep breath, I put my lab coat on and dig my stethoscope from the pocket and wrap it around my neck. We have to act impartially to each other publicly, but hell, I didn’t realize how hard it’d be now that we’re together.   “Yes, Dr. Bishop?”   He doesn’t even look up at me when I approach him, and I hate that it irritates me.   “I need you on beds seven through fifteen until the next shift rotation, then finish these charts before you leave.” His head tilts up, his lips in a firm line as he piles the stack in my arms. “I also need an update on the Brauer kids once an hour.”   Swallowing, I adjust the charts in my arms to prevent them from falling. I won’t let my pride get in the way of doing my job, and if charts are what I need to do right now, then I won’t make a scene. At least not in front of everyone. However, once we’re alone, I’m going to give him a piece of my mind for treating me like a damn intern again.   “Absolutely. Anything else, sir?” My tone is laced with fake sweetness, and he doesn’t flinch a beat at it.   “Yes, actually.” He takes a step forward and dips his head until his mouth hovers over my ear. “Make sure those charts are done correctly before you leave. I’ll be looking through them extensively.”   “Of course.” I grind my teeth, wishing I could give him a piece of my mind right now.   “And since I know you’re going commando, I won’t ask you to perform any oral procedures.” He winks before walking away, making my blood boil.   That asshole stole my panties!

Jonathon Turner is going to be the death of me. Maybe not the death of me…but my panties for sure! They seem to disintegrate the moment he touches me. Looks at me. Smiles at me. Talks to me. It’s more than physical. He’s breaking through an impenetrable wall. There’s a problem though—he’s younger than me. Six. Years. Younger. Let’s not forget he’s also one of my brother’s best friends. Oh, the other problem I forgot to mention… I never wanted to fall in love again. But you know what they say….never say never. 

MY REVIEW:

An AMAZINGLY sweet and sexy romance! Love Again really tugged my heartstrings and I LOOOOOOOOVED that we have a heroine who is a bit older than the hero. Add in the fact that the hero didn't act like a young playboy but a delicious REAL man and the most SWOON worthy cowboy!

Kelly Elliot is a terrific writer! As I was reading Love Again I can see the passion, the heart, the sizzle that she put into the book with every turn of the page. The characters are full of life and had great personalities and the sex....WOWZA! A must read!

         I didn’t hear a word that the interior designer was saying. I was focused on the way Jonathon looked in those Wranglers. And his boots. And the freaking black cowboy hat that made his grey eyes stand out. I swallowed hard. Jesus…could this guy get any hotter? Jonathon caught my stare from across the room. When he smiled my panties nearly disintegrated. The man had never even touched me, and yet one look from him and I was damn near panting. Yes, he could get hotter. Christ Almighty. Before I could stop myself, my tongue ran over my dry lips. Jonathon’s brows rose and his boyishly handsome smile turned into a sexy-as-hell grin. When his eyes smoldered, my breath hitched. I wiped my brow. Shit, is it hot in here? Jonathon knew where my dirty little mind had taken me, and I was pretty damn sure his was going in the same direction. I closed my eyes and tried not to picture anything sexy, but failed. Me…up against the wall with him buried deep inside me, giving me a long overdue orgasm. “Waylynn? Waylynn?” Ann’s voice pulled me from my naughty thoughts. Popping my eyes open, I cleared my throat. “What? Huh?” With a sweet smile, Ann repeated the question I had totally tuned out. “The color scheme. Are you good with it?” I frowned. What in the heck was she talking about? Color scheme? “Umm.” The young woman waited patiently, while I stood there with my mouth open like an idiot. “Color scheme?” I asked with a slight smile. Ann laughed. “Did you even hear a word I said?” My eyes darted to Jonathon. He was leaning against a desk in the middle of the room. It was the only piece of furniture that had been left by the previous owners of this space. His arms were now crossed over his massive chest, and he wore a shit-eating grin. Did the man know how freaking handsome he was? That sex appeal dripped off of him? He winked, and I had to lock my knees to keep from falling. Bastard. He knew exactly where my mind had gone, because his was there as well. Turning back to the interior decorator, I replied, “I’m so sorry. Jonathon was distracting me.” One quick glance back and Jonathon’s smile vanished, replaced by a shocked expression. “Me?” he asked. I nodded. “Yes. You.” Ann was now staring at Jonathon. I could see by the look in her eyes and the way she chewed her lip that she was having similar thoughts. It was obvious by the way she was trying not to look in his direction while she talked. She was probably the same age as he was, and that pissed me off. Then again, I had to remind myself that Jonathon hadn’t been staring at Ann. He’d been staring at me. “What did I do?” Jonathon asked. I wanted to say that his hotness was making my panties wet, and the throbbing between my legs was making it hard to think, but I decided it was best to avoid the truth. “That desk you’re leaning on. I keep wondering why the previous owner left it?” Jonathon looked down at the desk as Ann asked, “Do you want to keep the desk? It would be beautiful refinished.” I shrugged. “I’m not sure.” Jonathon walked around it. “I’m sure we could put this to good use. I can come up with an idea or two.” His head lifted and his eyes caught mine. I swore they turned as dark as the night sky. I swallowed, trying to ignore the pulse between my legs.

ARC Review - Moonlight Sins ( de Vincent book 1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout!


BLURB:

New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout delivers the unforgettable story of a woman whose new life has just begun—but may end in murder...  

Julia Hughes has always played it safe until she learned a very painful lesson. Now Julia’s starting over with a job in the Louisiana bayou—and a scorching encounter with a stranger, only to discover he’s Lucian de Vincent... her new employer. The de Vincent brothers share a massive fortune and a dark reputation. Julia cares for their troubled sister, but a menacing presence in the mansion—and the ever-present temptation of Lucian—prove dangerously distracting.

Lucian’s grandmother claimed de Vincent men fall in love once—and hard. Apparently, it’s Lucian’s turn. Julia’s compassionate care of his twin makes Lucian want to lay himself bare. But some secrets are better for Julia not to know.

The recent “suicide” of Lucian’s father is the latest in a string of deaths on the estate. Someone is eliminating the de Vincents. And the best way to get to Lucian may be through Julia...

MY REVIEW:

Jennifer L. Armentrout brings us a dark, mysterious, EXTREMELY SEXY novel that made me weak in the knees, excited, and hot all over! This book was really hard to put down. It had a almost dark feel to it but in a hot way that captures the readers attention from chapter 1. I really liked Lucian and Julia. These two had unbelievable chemistry, a crackling fizzle that made me feel energized and giddy. I was eagerly turning the pages and didn't want it to end but when it did, it made me really anxious to read the next one and that is a feeling I could never get sick of!

These de Vincent books are really absorbing and super exhilarating! This is the type of read you can expect with ANY book from Miss Armentrout but Moonlight Sins will absolutely bring in every reader a brand new series to FLOVE with every beat of their hearts.

Moonlight Sins gets a EXTREMELY SEXY FIVE SHOOTING STARS!

The perfect man for me is a blood-sucking lawyer. #pfftwhatever
Been there.
Done that.
Burned the T-shirt.
I didn’t swear off all men after my divorce, but I sure as hell swore off anyone remotely like my ex. On the top of that list? Attorneys. Everyone knows they can’t be trusted.
Now that I’m back in Chicago, my focus is my daughter, my mom and me. I haven’t given up on finding my happily-ever-after, it’s just on hold—indefinitely.
Then I see Reed Warner again, and he weasels his way into every part of my life, not willing to take no for an answer.
In spite of my better judgment I can’t stop thinking about the way his designer suits fit his muscular frame, or the way his blue eyes seem to eat me up with every glance.
You know when you’re on a diet and even hummus seems irresistible? Reed is like the equivalent of chocolate √©clair and my willpower is fading fast.
The problem? Not only is he a lawyer…
He was the best man at my wedding.
