My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards. We met at a wedding. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction. I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me. We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I loved this book.
Vi Keeland is truly becoming one of my favorite authors. She can transform a story from just words on a page into something so much more. She pulls true emotion from you as you read. It's not just a half ass plot with hot sex scenes like most books out now. Don't get me wrong, there are some nice steamy moments, but you get so engrossed in the characters and want to know more about them, whats going to happen, etc.

This story was completely believable. Not filled with impossible scenarios and crazy drama popping up constantly, but felt like you were really reading about someones life. These are the kinds of books I like to read.

(and by read, I mean listen to on my Kindle while I'm working... and the narrators for this book are also my favorites! Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are amazing! )

I'm left on the fence with this one.
While the story was good it just seemed to drone on and on. I had to force myself to finish the book.
Somehow the story was never ending and yet large groups of time were completely skipped over multiple times in the book. If you were to edit this book to about half the length it would be pretty good. The narrators did a great job, but even their expert narration skills couldn't save this one for me.
Maybe it's just me.. perhaps I wasn't in the mood for it or something. It makes no sense for me to be the only person that didn't care for the book; which is what it seems like based on the reviews from multiple sites.

I really liked this book.
I listened to it on audio and I have to say, Sebastian York absolutely made this story! He did a great job narrating.

I loved the characters. Their sarcasm and quick wit kept things entertaining. While the story was somewhat predictable, there were some twists I didn't see coming. This was the perfect romantic comedy with just the right amount of sexiness.

I've never read anything from Lauren Blakely, but after this book I'll be adding her to my list of must reads!

The last time I saw my best friend's younger brother, he was a geek wearing braces. But when Cannon shows up to crash in my spare room, I get a swift reality check. Now 24, he's broad shouldered and masculine, and so sinfully sexy, I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to enjoy. At six-foot-something with lean muscles hiding under his T-shirt, a deep sexy voice, and full lips that pull into a smirk when he studies me, he's pure temptation.

I did enjoy the read, though it had some slow spots in it. It has great potential, but I feel like the author focused on the wrong drama. In the beginning the story was setup to bring us some great suspense and drama filled chapters, but what we got was one chapter of crazy ex girlfriend drama and the downer of a stepfathers death. The losses he suffered should have brought him closer to her, making it harder on them both when the sister found out... instead it was just something that happened and then they were too childish to speak to each other for weeks. I just feel like the great story it could have been was lost and we were served a bland shell. It falls in line with the many cookie cutter stories that are rushed out to make a buck.

Good story, great potential, an okay was to spend a few hours.

A new standalone novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Vi Keeland. The night I met Drew Jagger, he'd just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing. Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn't an intruder at all. Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He'd been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.

I loved this book.
It was fast paced and full of sarcasm and witty comebacks. The two main characters were a great fit, they are polar opposites and yet absolutely perfect for each other. I love the way they met, it set the tone for the entire story. I'm not usually a fan of stories that include children, but they way this one was setup it worked well without taking away from the adult relationships. Plus, being adopted myself it pulled at my emotions a little bit.
I also loved Roman, he was only in the story a few times but his presence and attitude were felt.

I'd definitely recommend this book.

Eight weeks ago I signed a contract. It seemed like a good idea at the time: a handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed. There were some rules, though - lots of them actually. I had to follow the script and avoid dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal. After my self-imposed moratorium on men last year, it wouldn't be hard to live up to my end of the bargain...or so I thought.

I loved the story overall, but it started out a bit slow and somewhat confusing. Once everything fell into place it all made sense and then the story takes off.

I love the attention to detail and the deep connections between the characters, they had great chemistry. The plot was great and all potential twists were used to their fullest potential. Cooper is probably my favorite character, he's bossy but not in an asshole way. Everything he does is for Kate and it's really sweet. Kate was somewhat oblivious at times, but her determination to make her own way is inspiring. So many of these books the girls are more than happy to just take the money that is offered by the billionaire boyfriend.

The narrators were pretty good as well, at times when they did the other persons voice it was a little flat, but for the most part it was great.

Greer Karas has been mine since the first day I saw her. I walked away because she deserved better than I could offer, but I always planned to come back and stake my claim when the time was right. But true to form, Greer wasn't willing to wait. She threw down a challenge, and I'm meeting her head-on. I'm not walking away this time, because sometimes you have to fight dirty for love.

The second book in the Dirty Girl Duet series didn't disappoint!
There were tons of plot twists and a few I never saw coming, well done Meghan March, well done.

I haven't been this interested in a book series in quite a while. There really wasn't any down time, there was a consistent flow in the story and I never felt like I was being hit with filler. Either some drama was taking place or the action in the bedroom was heating up. I found it hard to put down, the minute I got home from work I picked it back up to see what was going to happen!

I can also see more spin offs in the future, I'd love to know what was going on in Banners apartment... I'd also really love to know what's going to happen with Canon, that was a huge shocker!

My name is Greer Karas, and I should never be allowed near another bottle of booze again. Because when I drink, my friend and I do stupid things. Like take a page out of my older brother Creighton's playbook and post something completely asinine on the Internet. Waking up with a giant hangover to find my humiliating personal ad has gone viral is not my finest moment.

Are you kidding me?! I have no words...

Cliff hanger to end all cliff hangers. I knew there was something going on but I NEVER saw that one coming. I don't want to spoil anything so I'm not going into details, but WOW.

I'm downloading book 2 as I type this and I see a long night ahead of me, work be damned.

I LOVE Cav, he's sexy and domineering. When he showed up at Greer's door I knew I was going to like him. Greer seemed like a sweet girl in her brothers series but we are certainly finding out she's secretly a dirty girl. The title is perfect. The balance of action, both in the bedroom and out, combined with their emotional past is perfect. Meghan March outdid herself with this one. Usually spin offs aren't quite as good as the original but I think in this case Greer is outdoing her brother.

Download complete.. off to read some more.

It was an okay read.
The pace was a bit slow and I found the main characters annoying at times. The book didn't feel like a complete story. I'm okay with cliff hangers, but this was an abrupt end to a building story.
I'm not sure if I'll continue the next book or not...

I wasn't particularly impressed with this book.
I usually love books by Jeaniene Frost, but this one was a bit of a stretch for me. The story felt forced. There was action, drama and heart warming moments, but they all seemed dull. The action wasn't page turning, and the drama didn't keep me interested. This may have been one of those series that should have stopped at book 2.
Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a bad book, it just didn't feel like it was a J. Frost book.
