Mia Harrington has had a difficult time of it lately - her father’s illness and subsequent death, then her finding out she must get married if she is to inherit what’s rightfully hers. Mia might be planning to marry investment banker Elias Pym, but she’s also having a relationship with his best friend, Doctor Alex Cartwright, and is in love with her gardener, Thomas Walker. Add to that broken dates, flashy proposals, a sexy Asian tech billionaire, and a nosy housekeeper, and you’ve got a situation hectic enough to drive even the most capable person to distraction.

This second book in this series is great. I thought it was better than the first book. It was interesting to see how Mia and her 4 men would all interact. There is also some funny moments. I actually couldn't put the book down and listened to it in one sitting. I can't wait to find out what happens after the wedding.

While i'm just starting to get into RH books, I think this was a good first book to this series. I thought the book was a little slow in the beginning but things do pick up. By the end of the book I couldn't wait to jump into book 2. It was interesting listening to Mia trying to juggle all of her men. I liked that each man is unique and brings something different to the table.

I'm sorry but this book didn't do it for me. I normally love M. Never books but this one was too repetitive. I wish there was more character development between Ellie and Kayne. I love a good sex scene like the next person but can a story have too much sex. It was just the same thing everyday.

I'm breaking up with setups. No more “you should meet my son, nephew, grandson, the butcher, the guy down the street who mows my lawn.” People mean well, but machines know better, so I'll rely on the great dating algorithms of the web to find my ideal man, thank you very much. Soon enough, it looks like I’ve found him - his screen name is Lucky Suit, and he’s hilarious, quick-witted, and full of heart. But when we finally get together in person, I have the distinct feeling I’ve met him before. Funny enough - he says the same thing about me.

This is a very short story but it's a very cute and sweet romance. Cameron and Kristen are such a perfect match. Beware that there is no sexy times but the story is still good.

Two addicts. One epic love story. Prepare for the worst. That's what Lily and Lo try to do when Jonathan Hale schedules an "important" meeting. The problem: After being swept into the public eye and battling their addictions, they're not sure what the worst is anymore. In a sea of many changes - including Ryke and Daisy living with them - Lily realizes that the best part of her fluctuating hormones might just be the worst. Her sex drive is out of control.

I love this whole series. Lo and Lily are just one out of of the 3 couples that I can't get enough of. This series is about love, heartache, addictions, family, the struggles celebrities face, the ups and downs of being in the media, having every single thing you do or choice you make scrutinized and so much more.

I love this whole series. Please start from book 1 in the Addicted Series. You can’t help but to love the whole gang: Lo and Lily, Connor and Rose and of course Ryke and Daisy. They all have not just a special friendship but they became each other family. Ryke and Daisy are perfect together. They are both daredevils and so hot.

Maximoff Hale is a force of nature. A ship unwilling to be steered. Headstrong, resilient, and wholly responsible - the 22-year-old alpha billionaire can handle his unconventional life. Born into one of the most famous families in the country, his celebrity status began at birth. He is certified American royalty. When he's assigned a new 24/7 bodyguard, he comes face-to-face with the worst case scenario: being attached to the tattooed, MMA-trained, Yale graduate who's known for "going rogue" in the security team - and who fills 1/3 of Maximoff's sexual fantasies.
