Seduced by the Enemy by Alyssa J. Montgomery

I liked that Luca had some sort of integrity, ‘I want you very much, Olivia, but if I’d made a commitment to another, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.’ I liked this book, I liked Luca.

Million Dollar Devil by Katy Evans

James can read his woman like a book, “what you were thinking.” When I only stare, he adds, “Who’s the only one who’s going to see my half-waxed chest?” One black eyebrow is up in challenge." I loved James's bluntness, “tequila ain’t a real man’s drink?” I shake my head. “No wonder he doesn’t like to eff.” The man isnt one for giving up, “I’d be happier naked.” He grins. “YOU would be happier naked.” I liked this book, I fell in love with James.

Southern Player by Jessica Peterson

Gracie really does love catching her man off guard, "Gracie nods. “Oh yeah. This is a—well, a sexual list, I guess.” I make a noise. Somewhere between a growl and a groan." Luke will always make time for his girl, “baby, you callin’ for phone *** is never a bother. I always got time for that.” Luke appreciates his girl loving food, "she doesn’t even look up at me before leaning in for another bite. Then another. Look at this. My city girl devouring an eight-dollar dinner like it’s the best thing she ever ate. I love it. I do not love how it’s making me tent my effing pants." I liked this book, I loved Luke.

The Risk by Elle Kennedy

Jake really is a charmer, “my metaphorical balls. You wouldn’t be able to handle the real ones,” he drawls. “Hottie.” Sometimes I think Brenna and Jake try to out do each other with annoying one another, “thank you.” I flash an overly lascivious grin. “Daddy loves it when you take care of him.” I'm thinking Jake really appreciates his lady's assets, "...a flush rises on the tops of her breasts. “These are so pretty,” I mutter, squeezing them gently." I loved this book, I fell in love with Jake.

Skylar likes to shower her man with compliments, "she nodded and stepped forward. “You have a really nice ****s.” I chuckled and she looked up at me, a small smile on her face." Landon is also one for showering his woman with compliments, “well, you’re excellent at a lot of things,” I said. “Naked things. Dressed things. Eating curry.” I liked this book, I fell in love with Landon.

Blurb: I’m an all-or-nothing man—100 percent focused on whatever has my attention.
First it was serving my country in the Special Forces. Then it was building my business. Right now it’s the hot blonde at the bar who’s about to become another notch on my bedpost.
But women never keep my attention for more than a night.
Until I peel off Skylar Anderson’s clothes and her mask starts to crumble, showing me glimpses of the girl she’s hiding. She’s funny, sexy and vulnerable and throws me out of bed before I can catch my breath and suggest breakfast.
When I start my last undercover job on a yacht, turns out, she’s one of the crew. I try, but I can’t look away.
Her high ponytail shows off her kissable neck that tastes like summer.
Her short uniform reveals the killer legs that were wrapped around me last night.
And her provocative smile? I know what that mouth is capable of.
I want to explore her body, discover her secrets and sail off into the sunset with her.
I might want to go all in for Skylar, but she should stay away from me. I’ve got secrets of my own and they can only bring her trouble.
This is a stand-alone novel.
Excerpt: “Did I tell you how beautiful you look tonight?”
For some reason, Landon’s compliment didn’t make me wince the way some men’s comments did. Everything about him was different and it had thrown me off kilter. His warm breath on my neck shouldn’t have made me shiver. He shouldn’t ease the ever-present knot in my stomach or have me wanting to slide my hand into his as we walked. He shouldn’t make me feel safe. “You didn’t.”
“Well, you do. Not that it’s any surprise.”
“Because you’re a gentleman who prefers blondes,” I said, nudging him gently with my elbow, trying to lighten the mood.
He pulled in a breath and scraped his hand through his hair. “I’m beginning to think I’m a man who just prefers you.”
I focused on the cobbled street in front of us. “Me?” Had I been mistaken about the ex-girlfriend in town or the girl on Tinder? I tried to hold my breath to ensure I heard his reply.
“Yeah, you. I like you. More and more.”
My stomach swooped, and I tried to think of a response. My head was telling me to run. Far away. I didn’t want to fall for anyone. I’d worked hard to stay single all these years—to keep away from temptation. But now, temptation right in front of me, I found myself rooted to the spot, wanting to know what was next. “Okay.”
“Okay?” he asked.
I nodded, unsure of what to say. Unsure of how I felt. I knew I found Landon attractive.
I knew I liked him too. But I also knew that I’d been single all these years for a reason.
He wrapped his large hand around my upper arm to steady me when I stumbled over a loose cobblestone. We stopped, and I looked up at him as he swept his thumb across my cheekbone. “I’m only going to ask you this once, and you don’t have to decide now, but stay with me tonight?”
“Landon . . .” Somehow, I couldn’t say no to him, even though I knew I shouldn’t say yes.
“Think about it.”

RELEASE REVIEW: Anguished by T.L. Smith

Title: Anguished
Series: Crimson Elite #2
Author: T.L. Smith
Genre: Romance (standalone)
Release Date: February 19, 2019
It wasn’t meant to be this way—she shouldn’t have fallen for my brother and left me for him. But she did. And now I’m left to pick up the pieces of my shattered, broken heart. And to top it off, they want me to come to their wedding. Do they think I’m a pushover? Do they think of me as a joke? The old saying stands true, ‘why have enemies when you can have family.’
I understand it now, better than I ever have in my life.
There’s one unexpected surprise though, Storm. She blew in just like one and makes the pain diminish. She’s exactly as her name describes her—she is a storm. A beautiful and powerful one.
But not all things are meant to last. Like a storm that wreaks havoc, some things cause anguish, and in my life she may very well be one of them.

Echo just doesn't beat around the bush, "I look away as he comes back with two glasses of wine. “I want to eff you…” he pauses, “… regularly.” A desperate man, will go to extreme measures, “Storm, I will break this door down. People are starting to stare. Not that I care, but I figure you might.” I loved this book, I loved Echo and I adored seeing the gang again.
