Susannah finally has a peaceful, calm life and a no-surprises man. Marriage to football superstar Ryan Sanderson was a whirlwind of passion, heat, energy, and excitement, but Susannah got sick of playing second fiddle to his team, watching women throwing themselves at him, and living in terror of the hard hits he took on the field. With their divorce just days from being final, she's already planning a wedding with her new fiance.... Ryan has just ten days to convince his soon-to-be ex-wife to give him a second chance.

If you want to listen to hours of bland everyday conversation and marital relations, petty jealousies and juvenile dramas, here it is. Boring, barely made it through. Tanya Eby is solid but has little to work with.

I couldn't have scripted a more perfect night. For one fantastic evening, at a masquerade party in the heart of Manhattan, I'm not the millionaire everyone wants a piece of. Fine - multimillionaire. But who's counting all those commas? Not me, and not the most intriguing woman I've ever met. And that's why I'm eager to get to know her more, since my mystery woman seems to like me for me, rather than for my huge...bank account. Everything's coming up aces. Until the next day, when things get a little complicated. (Newsflash - a lot complicated.)

Everybody knows Logan O'Toole, world famous porn star. Except then Devi Dare pops into my world, and pretty soon I'm doing things that aren't like me - like texting her with flirty banter and creating an entire web porn series just so I can get to star in her bed. Again. And again. With Devi, my entire universe shifts, and the more time I spend with her, the more I realize that Logan O'Toole isn't the guy I thought he was. So maybe I'm not the guy you thought I was either.

...Filthy of course, but interesting. Likeable, rounded out characters and an educational look into the porn industry. Not that you’re reading this for edification. This takes Mariana Zapata’s “Lingus” a whole lot deeper.

My life was perfect - until a shocking tragedy pulled the rug out from underneath me. My children were left without a father. I was without a husband and a provider. Instead of wallowing in my grief, I buried myself in my work at Dovetail Enterprises. Landing the promotion as the CEO’s right hand was exactly what I needed. Getting saddled with Milo Huxley as an assistant is exactly the opposite. I can’t stand him. He’s arrogant, irresponsible, and out for my job. As if that’s not bad enough, he has to be devastatingly sexy, and have a posh English accent that makes me squirm on top of it all.

Wanted to like it more. Seemed like checking a box. Things were just too neat and tidy. Now maybe if I’d read the previous three in the series I’d feel differently but I didn’t think there was much filling out of the characters, particularly Milo. Found him pretty 2-dimensional. And no spoilers but the box of memories in last chapter? Just no. Shane is great but I couldn’t get past Sophie’s Milo. Her British accent made him sound like a stuffy older lord. Very proper but so not sexy.

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.

So you have to continue the series and find out Leslie’s deal. She’s a bit maudlin and melodramatic about her issues... I’m not getting any righteous anger from Leslie, who’s supposed to be so spunky, just the flight in fight-or-flight. Same with Theo and his family, really... they gave me whiplash. And the narrator just can’t handle the British accents successfully enough. I found Theo’s conversation distracting. But Frank is delightful, you know Liam’s and Hayden’s stories are yet to come, so even if it’s maybe a little drawn out and clumsily handled, you should check this one off the series list.

Camden Harris, the famously hot, hulk of a footballer is laid up in a London hospital. But his busted knee doesn't stop him from running his well-practiced game on Indie Porter - his redheaded spitfire of a doctor. She's not his type, not even close. But she could be the perfect distraction from the soul-crushing damage this injury could cost him.

With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course she isn't interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet's misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match.

This book and the whole series is hilarious, sweet and endlessly entertaining. But have to join the chorus of head-scratchers: what’s with Nathan Everett? Is he a Scot masquerading as a Brit masquerading as a Canadian? He has such a high-pitched voice, just no way you can buy him as Alex. Jarring and disturbing all throughout the book.

In fifth grade my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed. It didn't take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever. For the next seven years, it was us. She's the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am.

It’s the same-old story of just how badly will the male lead treat the female, how much will she roll over and take, how much dysfunction can you overlook by engaging in some rough sex... I lost count of how many times she said no, or stop, or we shouldn’t, only to have him proceed merrily into her panties. Impossible to care much for either character until the last 5 chapters. Secondary characters very flat and undeveloped.
