Zane Phillips mistook me for his dog walker. It shouldn’t surprise me that the man with a suit more expensive than my rent would assume that I was there to serve him. The positive? I put him in his place. The negative? I missed my job interview because of it. Now I find out he’s a rich Australian entrepreneur, and he wants to make up for tanking my interview. Yes, he’s impossibly hot - but he’s also an arrogant jackass - so...no thanks. But after a little white lie I tell spirals out of control, I’m somehow offered the chance to play Zane’s girlfriend to help promote his new dating website....

This was such a cute story. Loved everything about it. I haven’t read a K. Bromberg book in a while but this was in the Romance Package on Audible so I decided to give it a try. It did not disappoint at all. Super cute fake relationship story with a super awesome and strong heroine and a hard heart hero that falls completely head over heels without realizing it. It truly gave me all the feels. Absolutely recommend!

Despite my slutty reputation, I was technically a virgin at 18. The faint positive on a budget pregnancy test sent me spinning moments before meeting my sister's snooty new fiancé. Shaking hands with upper-crusty James was like downing a triple shot of vodka. Dizzy with desire, confused by my body's reaction, and shocked by the possessiveness flashing in his eyes, I deceived him that night and told the world at their wedding reception. The truth? I slept with my sister's fiancé.

Scarlett is always the sensible one: The sober driver. The planner. The one holding your hair back while you're worshiping the porcelain gods. Week-after-week, she visits Jock Row with her friends - the university's hottest party scene and a breeding ground for student athletes. And if keeping her friends out of trouble and guys out of their pants was a sport, she'd be the star athlete. Being a well known jock-blocker gets her noticed for all the wrong reasons; just like that, she's banned from Jock Row. No guy wants a girl around who keeps their jock friends from getting laid.

Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a queen - the first queen of Wessco. It’s a big deal. When she’s crowned at just 19, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident, and cunning. What she isn’t...is married. It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want. Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man - particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty.

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.

Some days, all you need is a message from a stranger. Ruby Santos knew exactly what she was getting herself into when she signed up to write a soldier overseas. The guidelines were simple: one letter or email a week for the length of his or her deployment. Care packages were optional. Been there, done that. She thought she knew what to expect. What she didn't count on was falling in love with the guy.

Mariana Zapata books are freaking addictive, once I start one, I just want to binge read until I’m done, seriously! I still haven’t found a book by her that I don’t absolutely love. She’s the queen of the slow burn, and she’s a master at it. Everything about it always feels so right, the purpose, the anticipation, the non gratuitous sex. It’s just perfect!

So, I kinda made the mistake of reading/listening to From Lukov With Love before reading Dear Aaron. I didn’t know there was a connection between both. Now, I need to say that they’re complete standalones so you don’t have to read one to enjoy the other, but the heroines on both books are sisters and Lukov happens a few years after DA. So if you’re super OCD like I am, I totally recommend you read Dear Aaron first.

Needless to say, I loved every second of this book. The idea of these characters falling for each other by corresponding for months was so cool and refreshing! Everything about their relationship from strangers to friends to lovers was absolutely fantastic. And then everything about how they meet. Gahhh I’m smiling and swooning hard! I want more Ruron!

Also, as with From Lukov, I simultaneously read the book and listened to the audiobook and let me tell you that is another fantastic performance by Callie Dalton and Teddy Hamilton! They are magic on the booth, although I wish Teddy would’ve done all the male parts like he did on Lukov. Either way, it was amazing. Not sure why I took me so long to read this one, but I absolutely recommend it!!!

If someone were to ask Jasmine Santos to describe the last few years of her life with a single word, it would definitely be a four-letter one. After 17 years - and countless broken bones and broken promises - she knows her window to compete in figure skating is coming to a close. But when the offer of a lifetime comes in from an arrogant idiot she's spent the last decade dreaming about pushing in the way of a moving bus, Jasmine might have to reconsider everything.

OMG, this book was everything, freaking everything! Can you ever go wrong with a Mariana Zapata book? My answer is no, never! Mariana is the queen of slow burn and amazingly written romance. Her heroines are always funny and kick ass and her heroes are simply swoon worthy. Family and relationships always play such an important part and her character development is top notch. This book is huge but it reads so fast, you can’t help but being completely invested in the story.

This one is an instant favorite. You know I love sports romances. And figure skating to boot? Heaven! The banter and bickering between the main characters is some of the best I’ve seen. Jazmine is so funny and strong, and she definitely shows so much growth throughout the book. And Ivan Lukov? He’s freaking everything. My heart wanted to burst reading this. Ivan was a man’s man, yet so loving and fiercely protective. Gah, I’m in love!

I simultaneously read and listened to this one and I got to say that the audiobook is freaking amazing. It’s narrated in duet form by Callie Dalton and Teddy Hamilton, which is bloody brilliant. I could listen to them narrate any book. I think this one might replace Kulti as my favorite MZ book. I absolutely recommend this book!

No last names. No life stories. Those were the rules. Once upon a time a cocky, copper-haired tourist sauntered into Zara's bar. And even though she knew better, Zara indulged in a cure for the small-town blues. It was supposed to be an uncomplicated fling - a few sizzling weeks before he went back to his life, and she moved on. Until an accidental pregnancy changed her life. Two years later, she's made peace with the notion that Dave No-Last-Name will never be found - until one summer day when he walks into her coffee shop.

I love Sarina’s books. It’s no fluke she’s one of my top authors and no brainer one-clicks. Her books are simply amazing, the plot, the characters, the beautiful writing. I loved Dave and Zara’s story so much, this might be my favorite book in this series. Both of them were amazing characters but Zara was extra special. I’m ridiculously invested in these characters, both the Bruisers and the Vermont gang and cancer wait to see what the future holds for them. May and Alec’s book is sitting pretty in my kindle so I think I’ll start there. Absolutely recommend!!!

Also, I have to say that the audiobook narration on this one is freaking fantastic. I’m a huge Teddy Hamilton fan, but I’m completely in l
