**This is book 2 in the Checkmate Duet Series–a friends to lovers romance. You must read book 1, Checkmate: This is Reckless first. Highly recommended to read the Checkmate Duet, This is War and This is Love first, but not necessary. This can read as a standalone duet.**



REVIEW:
I really loved Courtney she was a sweet girl, but then she had this little evil side to her, “And part of me just wants to walk up to her and slap her across the face until her ugly nose ring falls out.” She narrows her eyes and releases a breath. “But being a Southern lady, I won’t stoop to that level or let her bring that side out of me,” she says through clenched teeth that really brings out her Southern accent." Drew is one of those men that only want the best for his woman, "I feel like a kid again when I turn and ask Drew if we can keep him. He places his hand on my back and looks down at the cutest puppy in the world. “I told you before, whatever makes you happy, sweetheart.” I loved this book, and it ended with a peak about who the next installment is about, and I'm so excited for the next two characters.

REVIEW: 
Drew can be a little cocky, “for a girl who just screamed out my name and came on my face, you’re a little moody,” he quips." Courtney knowd how to play her man's games, she may even be better at it, "I watch as she slowly unties it and opens it up, revealing what she’s wearing underneath. I swallow. She’s wearing nothing. “Jesus Christ, Courtney,” I mutter, looking around to make sure no one else is getting the view. She closes it back up with a sultry smile and leans over the door window." What a cliffhanger! I'm seriously anxious for the next book.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ: Shopping for a CEO's Wife by Julia Kent




Title: Shopping for a CEO's Wife
Series: Shopping for a Billionaire #12
Author: Julia Kent
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 25, 2017



Blurb

Snowbound. Sounds so romantic, with visions of cuddling before a roaring fire, hot chocolate spiked with brandy, and a secret elopement.

Wait. What?

My fiancé's father won't stop trying to turn our pending wedding into a three-ring media circus so he can get free publicity for his family's Fortune 500 company. My mother has decided she's done with All Things Wedding and asks her teacup Chihuahua for mother-of-the-bride advice.

They've all gone certifiably mad.

Then the stress from the wedding puts my mother in the hospital, I scream at my future father-in-law in front of a camera crew and the video goes viral, and the romantic wedding that started with Andrew's grand Pride and Prejudice proposal looks less like Jane Austen and more like Dostoyevsky.

So what do you do when you're a fixer and you can't fix something?

You give up on it.

Not on Andrew, silly.

The wedding.

Shopping for a CEO's Wife is the 12th book in Julia Kent's New York Times bestselling Shopping series. As Shannon and Declan enjoy their newlywed bliss, Andrew's father wants to exploit Amanda and Andrew's nuptials, much to Amanda's chagrin. Can she learn to stand up to her future father-in-law and fight for what's right? But the real question is: will Spritzy the teacup Chihuahua end up being a flower girl?

REVIEW:
I'm not sure what Amanda makes of Andrew's turn ons, “we can have sex anywhere you like, and pretty much on demand. What’s so special about your childhood bedroom? And during a cocktail party?” He hardens even more. “Andrew!” Amanda and Andrew have some interesting bonding activities:
                  “While you’re welcome to look at my naked body anytime – on demand , in fact – I’m curious. Why the sudden attention?”
                “I’m rating your ****s.”
I really loved this book, it was entertaining.

Dr. OB by Max Monroe




Will is awesome, he'll keep Melody's dirty little secret, "she smiled and exhaled a breath of relief. “Rat you out? No. Tease you mercilessly until the end of time about it? Yes.” will and Melody are entertaining but there are scenes where the parents steal the show, “if you two end up doing the sex, be safe,” my father added, and I wanted to melt into the hardwood floor. “Do you have condoms, Will?” There are times Will has to put his foot down, "...Will wrapped his arms around me tightly and pulled me away from the counter. “You’re not measuring my ***k, Mel.” I absolutely loved this book, it was so funny.

Mr. Big by Delancey Stewart




Oliver would rather use actions than words, "before I could ask another question, Oliver’s mouth was on mine, and his body was pressed up against me, pinning me to the solid wood door behind me." Oliver tries to help with chores around the house, “do you put this shirt in the dryer?” Oliver stood in the ... of the nursery, holding a gauzy blouse I’d worn the night before and looking adorably confused." I liked this book, I loved Oliver.

    EXCERPT: SAM She shakes her head and laughs. “I don’t judge. It sounds to me like your therapy has helped you see what it is you need versus what you thought you wanted, and I’m so happy you’ve recovered from your injury and you’re able to return to work. So many agents aren’t as lucky as you.” There’s a spark of sadness in her eyes. A look that only the friends and family of those in law enforcement get when they think of those who aren’t as fortunate as I am. I nod in agreement. “Which is why I was excited to take this opportunity here in L.A. with your brother. He’s giving me another chance to prove myself. California is a fresh start for me.” I smile at her and she smiles in return, and it’s soft, caring, and does things to me that I’m not sure I’m ready for. “So what do you do?” I ask, turning the questions on her. I’m done spilling my garbage. I want to hear about her. She drops her eyes from mine and takes another drink of wine before resting it on her thigh. “I’m an attorney. I do corporate law, mostly negotiating and reviewing contracts. It’s extremely boring to someone who’s not interested in legalese, but it keeps me busy and it pays well.” She shrugs. “Do you ever end up in court?” “No. Ironically, if there is ever litigation, we typically hire outside counsel. Sounds weird, doesn’t it?” She scrunches her nose up and smiles. “Not really.” I shake my head. “I get why. You’re an expert at what you do. The attorneys you hire are experts in litigation. Everyone does what they do best.” “Exactly.” Our conversation slows, but it’s not uncomfortable in the silence. We both relax in the quiet and jut ‘be’. There’s something to be said for that level of comfort when you’re in the presence of someone else. “So, when do you think you’ll be moving in?” she asks. “I’m having some stuff delivered this weekend, so I hope Saturday is okay?” I raise my eyebrow at her, hoping it’s not an inconvenience. She smiles. “Saturday is perfect.” “I’m still waiting on a truck from Phoenix, so that’ll be sometime next week, but I’m ready to get out of that hotel. Speaking of that hotel, I really should get going. It’s getting late, and I didn’t mean to keep you up.” I stand up and she follows suit. We both carry our empty glass and beer bottle to the kitchen, and Kate swipes something off the center island. “This is the key for the house.” She dangles the ring on her pointer finger. “You can have your alarm system installed anytime. If you need anything secured before then, I have a safe and an alarm on this house. You’re welcome to keep anything in here.” “I appreciate that.” The soft tips of her fingers brush against my palm as she places the key in my hand. “See you Saturday,” she says, her voice barely above a whisper. “See you Saturday,” I return. For the first time in a long time, I have something to look forward to.

RELEASE BLITZ: The One That Got Away by Magan Vernon




Title: The One That Got Away
Series: Friendship, Texas #4
Author: Magan Vernon
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 24, 2017



Blurb

A brand new standalone from Friendship, Texas featuring everyone's favorite awkward baker and the one that got away.

I looked up and standing there was my ex-boyfriend, Jordan Webber. Maybe ex-boyfriend wasn't the right word. Maybe the boy who I dated for almost two years. Then he graduated early, leaving for art school in New York. He wanted me to come with him, but what future did I have in New York? My parents weren’t paying for me to go to school unless it was a state school with a real degree and all I ever wanted was to do photography. So the portrait studio worked for the time being until I realized I really needed to get out of the house and took the part-time job at the bakery. Between my parents’ divorce, work, and trying to get over my break up, I was basically a hot mess the first two years after high school. Joey came in at the right time as a distraction then the job at the bakery. But I still never forgot about the one that got away.

I hadn't seen Jordan in over four years and there he was, standing there with a hand on one of the boxes and his blue eyes wide open like he'd just seen a ghost.

"Abbey Dillinger?" he asked, it wasn't so much of a question as it was a breathless statement.

I hated him for leaving me. He could have gone to art school in Dallas. He could have stayed if he really did love me. I should have hated him. But seeing him, standing in front of me, I couldn’t hate him. The past four years had been very good to him.

**This book is a standalone in a series of standalones taking place in the fictional town of Friendship, Texas. You don't need to read any of the previous books to understand this one***

REVIEW:
I liked that Abbey planned for things, "everytime I saw Jordan, I looked like a complete hot mess with a high bun and either work clothes or a dirty tank top. Tonight, I was going to show him just how well I cleaned up and what he’d been missing all these years." Jordan knows how to woo a girl, "he shrugged. “You wanted romance. What’s more romantic than post-coital breakfast with my parents?” I really liked this book, it was entertaining.
