Review: Mister Moneybags by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

MMB banner 1

 

IMG_5273I met Bianca in an elevator.

 She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck.

The beautiful, raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed.

 She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she’d dubbed “Mister Moneybags”—her afternoon appointment.

 Bianca told me how much she hated Dex’s type—snobby, over educated, silver- spooned men who didn’t appreciate the simple things in life.

 So, after the elevator finally started moving again, I cancelled the interview and let her believe I was someone I wasn’t—a bike messenger named Jay. I loved the way she looked at the fake me and didn’t want it to end.

 I began dating her as “Jay”—all the while letting her interview the real me over email.

 I didn’t expect that our chemistry online would be just as hot.

I didn’t expect the mess I’d gotten myself into.

I didn’t expect that Jay and Dex would fall in love with her.

 And she was falling for two men.

Only, both men were me.

And when she found out, we were both going to lose her.

 Nothing could have prepared me for that day. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for what came after.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

MY REVIEW: 

AHH!!! A ONE-SITTING BOOK! I devoured this book! I couldn’t put it down for the life of me. I loved the first chapter, it hooked me immediately. It had me cracking up so bad that I was messaging friends talking about it and laughing! I loved Dex and Bianca. So many plot twists in the last few chapters! Especially when it got to the last 20% or so, I literally could not put the book down. I couldn’t break my attention away because I had to know what was going to happen.
Such a fun, yet crazy book. Highly recommend this book!!

Review Blitz: Say I’m Yours by Corinne Michaels

 

SIY Available Now

 
SayYours AmazonFrom New York Times Bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a new second chance standalone romance.

I spent twenty years waiting for Trent Hennington to open his eyes and see me. But it was all for nothing. He chose to keep himself guarded and let me walk away, proving that my time and efforts were wasted.

I’m done being invisible.

It’s time to move on.

A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, Cooper Townsend is perfect. He’s kind, sexy, and attentive–everything a girl could want.

I thought I got it right this time.

That my heart could mend, and I would be happy.

Apparently, some things really are just too hard to walk away from.

 

My Review:

This woman and her writing and stories… They kill me every time. I’ve read and ADORED every single book that’s been published. She really knows how to mess with your emotions. If you’ve read hers before, you know it’s no secret. if you’ve never read, keep this in mind. Tears will be shed, if not, then tears WILL be in your eyes. I’ve cried every book. I’m an emotional person (I’m sure you all know this by now) so it doesn’t take much for the water to start flowing. But seriously. I get sucked into her books immediately. Grace is definitely my favorite female character she’s written so far. She’s the character I’ve related to most in her stories. Not completely, but enough. These Hennington boys… Seriously, I wish emojis worked here because they get my feelings out better than words. It’s easier and faster. :) But seriously, I can’t with these books and I adored Trent and Grace. I love this gang so much I’m not ready for it to be over..

Review Release Blitz: Sweet Cheeks by K. Bromberg

sweetcheeks

sweetcheeks_frontcoverAn all new second chance love story by the New York Times Bestselling author of the beloved Driven series.

It all started with the invitation. To my ex-fiance’s new wedding.

I should have ignored it. Thrown it away. Set it afire. But I didn’t. I replied.

With a plus one.

And then my assistant accidentally mailed it.

Enter Hayes Whitley. Mega-movie star. The man who has captured the hearts of millions. But I gave him mine years ago. He was my first love. He was my everything. Right until he up and left to chase his dreams without so much as a simple goodbye.

When he showed up out of the blue ten years later, I should have known to steer clear of him. I should have rejected his offer to take me to my ex’s wedding. I should have never let him kiss me.

But I didn’t.

And now we’re left wondering if the pieces of the life we once shared still fit together somehow. First loves are hard to forget. The question is, do we want to forget? Or do we risk the chance and see what happens next?

ADD TO GOODREADS

what i thought

I really enjoyed this book. Second chance romances are some of my favorite reads and this wasn’t an exception. I have been so excited to dive into more of K. Bromberg’s books after devouring the first 3 Driven books plus the novella companion to those 3 books.

I think fans of J. Daniel’s Sweet Addiction will enjoy this. It’s similar in that both of our female leads own a bakery and love to bake. I like trying to draw similarities so hopefully that convinces at least one person; worth a try right? :)

You can’t help but love Hayes; I adored the flashback and the last 15% of the book. It’s what completely won me over for him. Once you finish the book, hopefully you’ll understand why I loved him so much by the end of the book.

I’ve always been intrigued by actress/actor books; Hayes being the actor in the book. I always like to see how someone from Hollywood falls in love (or back in love) with someone who has absolutely no connection to that world. Leads me to believe that one day Nick Jonas or Channing Tatum or Liam Hemsworth will come find me one day. ;) — A girl can dream right? :)

I’m trying to stay away from my giddy and gushing in my reviews and hopefully I’ve done just that. I loved this book – that’s all I can say without just gushing. :)

dsc_0087New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.

She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.

On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift), and a novella (UnRaveled). She is currently finishing up Sweet Cheeks a standalone novel out November 14th.

Her plans for 2017 include a sports romance duet (2 books: The Player, The Catch) and the Everyday Heroes series (3 books: Cuffed, Combust, and Cockpit). She’s also writing a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series that will be out in February 2017.

She loves to hear from her readers so make sure you check her out on social media.

Review Blitz: A Risk Worth Taking by Heather Hildenbrand

 

 

A Risk Worth Taking by Heather Hildenbrand
Series: N/A
Published by: Accendo Press on October 22nd 2013
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Contemporary Romance, New Adult
Pages: 265 (Kindle)
Source: ARC copy from Mark My Words

My Rating: 4.5 stars

I received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review from the authors. It does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

When 22-year-old Summer Stafford’s parents split halfway through her senior year at college, Summer’s world is rocked. Everything she thought she knew—heck, everything she thought she wanted for her own life—feels like a lie. The truth is love is a risk. And the true kind, the kind that lasts, might even be a fairy tale.

Reeling from the divorce, Summer derails her own future by breaking up with her parent-approved boyfriend and giving up her lifelong plans for a big-city career. She moves back home, business degree in hand. Dad needs her to fill the gaps her mother left behind; Summer needs to find who she is outside of the cookie-cutter life that failed so miserably for her parents.

Ford O’Neal’s future involves one person: himself. He doesn’t have a permanent address and he definitely doesn’t commit. To a place or a person. Raised by hippies, he plans just far enough ahead to secure his next stop, this one landing him at a work-study program at Heritage Plantation where he can grow his own herbal and medicinal creations.

Summer is gorgeous and smart and fun to be with, the perfect way to pass five months. It won’t be love—Ford’s got too many things to accomplish, too many places to go, before he settles down. Yet Summer pulls him in, challenging him to rethink his own philosophy.

When Ford’s five months are up, each of them must decide if love is really worth the risk.

my thoughts 2

I knew the minute I saw the cover and read the synopsis, that I wanted to read it. This book definitely did not disappoint at all! I’m such a sucker when it comes to contemporary and will pick it up quickly!

Summer just finished college, but just recently did she find out that her parents got divorced. Completely torn by her parent’s divorce, she moves back home to help out on Heritage Plantation. There she meets new guy, Ford who is helping the family with develop medicines. Summer doesn’t want to dive into another relationship, especially after just ending one and seeing the other split. But after spending the summer with Ford, she’s beginning to rethink that decision.

I absolutely loved the country life style, you don’t see many country related books out there- at least within the young/new adult genre. I have only ever came across one other swoon-worthy country boy, and that was Tucker from the Unearthly trilogy by Cynthia Hand. Ford definitely is a swoon-worthy man. If it wasn’t for sleep, I would have finished this book in one sitting, it was that good! I absolutely adored Summer and Ford’s relationship! I loved the summer feel, (the season, not the actual character ;) ) making it that much more enjoyable getting to read a book like this in the summer! This was perfect contemporary and a great summer read!!
