Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Wither's past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out - move up at the nightclub she works at and stay away from any guy who might trigger her obsessive love disorder. A perfect plan. But what Alayna didn't figure on is Hudson Pierce, the new owner of the nightclub. He's smart, rich, and gorgeous - the kind of guy Alayna knows to stay away from if she wants to keep her past tendencies in check. Except, Hudson's fixed his sights on her.
I've had this book on my TBR list for a while and I'm glad I made the time to pick it up. The characters are interesting and complicated making for a great story. Just when things seem to be working out for Hudson and Alayna there's a twist. They both have dark and somewhat messed up pasts but maybe that's the thing that will keep them together. Guess I'll have to keep reading to find out.
They say Rafe Hunter is trouble with a capital T. I say - bring it on. As long as Trouble comes in a package as delicious as Rafe’s, I’m ready to climb on his Harley and ride all night long - and I’m not just talking about his motorcycle. I can hide out until the scandal with my evil ex blows over and have a wild rebound at the same time. Besides, I’ve got no heart left to break. My ex made sure of that. As long as Rafe and I keep our no-strings fling from our families, what can possibly go wrong?
I loved reading this book and listening to it read by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt just made it that much better. Rafe and Carrie are an imperfect couple who are perfect for each other. Like all of Lili Valente's contemporary romances, The Troublemaker, is filled with humor and ridiculously hot sex.
I'm one puff piece away from tearing up my journalism degree and hurling my laptop into the Hudson River. So when I smell a juicy story brewing at my brother's Wall Street investment firm, I'll do whatever it takes to get my scoop. One clever disguise later, I'm deep undercover as the firm's newest broker, simultaneously gathering intel and spouting off stock tips like a boss. Go me, right? Sure, it sounds good on paper, but there's a catch: the actual boss. Chief Executive Panty-melter Jack Holt is cocky. Infuriating. And one smoldering look has me ready to violate every rule in the employee handbook. Thank God my assignment has an expiration date. Because falling for my brother's best friend and business partner is a lose-lose proposition. Right?
I absolutely loved reading this book and I jumped at the chance to listen to it read by two of my favorite narrators. Sebastian York and Andi Arndt do a wonderful job bringing life to the characters. The sexual tension between Jack and Ellie is palpable and while their relationship is a little tricky at times it's so much fun to watch it unfold.

Kara MacAllister thinks she's just an average, small-town preschool teacher until the night a mysterious stranger shows up at her door claiming that she's not only immortal, but the chosen one of a band of powerful shape-shifting males. Lyon steals her away from everything she knows and thrusts her into a world beyond her comprehension, a world filled with magic, nightmares, and perilous danger where Kara discovers an inner strength she never knew she possessed, and a passion in the arms of Lyon beyond anything she ever imagined.
I always love a good shifter series and this book did not disappoint. I look forward to continuing the series and seeing some more of these men find their mates.
For six generations, the women of wine country have had a saying: don’t bang a Hunter man unless you want a bun in your oven. Yeah, well. I’ve got a saying too: no thanks. The last thing I need is baby makes three. My business is expanding, and the only thing I’m interested in getting knocked up is my bottom line. But then one night, Emma Haverford makes me an offer I can’t refuse - she backs away from the land I have my eye on in exchange for a favor...a big, fat, baby-making favor....
Emma and Dylan may be my new favorite couple:)
No one writes contemporary romance quite like Lili Valente and this book is a perfect example of that.
Emma Haverford leaves behind the fast past life of Silicone Valley for a more laid back and relaxed lifestyle in wine country. She knew running her own vineyard would be hard work but that's what she needs to take her mind off of her failed engagement. What she didn't count on was her hotter than sin neighbor, who just happens to have a bone to pick with her.
Dylan Hunter has spent his whole life trying to take care of others and make sure that his family is looked after. His only interest is expanded his property so that he can open his own brewery and the one person standing in his way is Emma Haverford. It would be easy to hate her if she wasn't so sweet, innocent and god damn lovable. So when she comes to him with an offer that may give him the land he wants he has a hard time turning her down.
I loved everything about these two and watching them come together is heart warming. If you're in the mood for a feel good romance you will love this book.

Port Royal, South Carolina, was my home. I was born there. I fell in love there. And I nearly died there. I never thought I'd go back. Now, after so many years, I have to return to bury the man who made my life a living hell. Some nights, I used to cry myself to sleep, praying my father would die. Other nights were different. Other nights, there was him. Callan Cross.
This book has some big ups and downs, it's filled with childhood love, heartache and despair. Parts of this book were hard to get through and at times I wondered if Callen and Coralie were ever going to be able to put their troubled past behind them. But in the end their souls are bound for each other and no amount of distance or time can change that.
I hate my new roommate. And I want to do dirty, delicious things to her in that swing she installed that we both know has nothing to do with aerial yoga. Neither of which is good, considering Diana Daniels is my NHL team captain's little sister, and he will break my face if I'm not a perfect gentleman. I try to be. Really, I do. But Diana has all sorts of Jedi mind tricks to make a man obsessed with getting her into bed, and I'm not gonna lie - I fall for every single one of them.
There's nothing better than a well written book read by two amazing narrators!
First off, I loved this book and totally feel for Tanner and Diana right off the bat. So listening to it performed with such humor and passion was a real treat.
If you're looking for a sweet but oh so sexy contemporary romance you will love this book.

Someone once told me that happiness is fleeting. I can see now that he was right. I'm trapped in a black hole of darkness I can't seem to crawl out of. My twin and my lover want each other dead and I'm pregnant with a baby I don't know how to protect. Ryland says he will do anything to get me back, but how do you trust the man who almost killed you? When every option before you comes at a cost, how do you choose the right path? People say that history has a way of repeating itself.
A satisfying end to the series. While Ryland and Brighton didn't start out with the best relationship they both grew throughout this series into characters that were perfectly suited for each other.

Burn. Sloane. I’m not safe. I haven’t been safe for a while now. I ran to Zeth for protection, but Zeth is in danger himself. This is the closest I’ve come to finding my sister in two years. I can’t back down now. This is just another breezy weekend in the Californian desert. What could possibly go wrong in the next 48 hours? Fallen. Sloane’s life was supposed to get better when she found Alexis. Easier. Happier. Yet now she know her sister is safe, nothing’s gotten easier.
If you've read the first two books in this series then you're going to love this continuation of the series. Zeth and Sloane are one of my favorite couples, although they still don't want to admit that they are in a relationship, lol. I can't wait to listen to the last two books in this series.
