Socially awkward Joellen Bixby has a date every Saturday - with her cat, a pint of ice cream, and fantasies of the way-too-handsome Michael Maddox. She’d give anything to win over the unattainable CEO of her firm, but how can she when she blends in so well with her cubicle? The answer may be closer than she thinks. Cameron McGregor is a cocky, tattooed Scottish rugby captain who just moved in next door. He’s not Jo’s type - at all - but the notorious playboy is offering to teach the wallflower everything he knows about inspiring desire.

OMG!!! So much love for this book! I stumbled upon this author when Burn for You was on sale through audible. Greatest find ever!!! I have not loved a male character as much as I loved Cam McGregor in a really long time! Though the story was written solely from the females point of view the author did an amazing job making sure the reader knew Cam’s feelings. The chemistry between this couple was off the charts! I absolutely loved the story of Joellen coming into her own and Cam teaching her how to love herself! I am honestly so sad it is over! I listened to this on audible and the narrator did a fantastic job!!! We all need a Cam McGregor in our corner!!!

I'm not a one-night stand kind of woman. I'm especially not the woman who has a few drinks at a concert and ends up in bed with my childhood celebrity crush, Eli Walsh. However, that's exactly where I find myself. What's a girl to do after a drunken mistake? Run. I grab my clothes and get away from the powerful, irresistible, and best-sex-of-my-life superstar as fast as I can.

Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at 18 hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was. Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation - confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings.

Tori Rivera thinks Jamie McCade is rude, arrogant, and, worst of all, the sexiest man she's ever laid eyes on. His reputation as a player is almost as legendary as his surfing skills. No matter how her body heats up when he's around, she's determined not to be another meaningless hookup.

Country music god Beau Mason has just announced his retirement from the business at age 30, and I've just scored the interview of a lifetime. My network is flying me to Kentucky for his final interview, and at his request I'll be spending a few days with him at his ranch. I should be thrilled. But I'm not. Beau and I have a history, and I haven't seen him since he obliterated my heart at the tender age of 18.

I was hoping it would be better. I feel like the author is very talented at using poetic imagery. However there is a point where my mind would because it was just too much. The base of the story was okay, not totally unoriginal. I just feel like maybe the author tried to hard for a story that really did not have a lot of layers. None of the “secrets” were really all that shocking to me. Overall, it was okay. Not worth an audible credit, but was fine for a free read. The narrators were not great all. I was very annoyed with both at certain points.

This book sucked me in quickly and I was so excited to read it. I loved the instant chemistry between Ben and Mia. I loved the love/hate relationship in the beginning and I even loved the friendship they built. Nolan was adorable and really added to my love. Unfortunately, About halfway through I was fast forwarding through sex scenes that were too much. The end was just unbelievable. And I mean literally there is just no way it could have happened. I am married to a police officer and I was annoyed by some things that were said that never would have happened. I was just plain annoyed with the book by the end. To the point that I have no desire to explore the other books in the series. Kind of a bummer.
