Rescued by Calvin McLoughlin from a would-be subway attacker, Holland Bakker pays the brilliant musician back by pulling some of her errand-girl strings and getting him an audition with a big-time musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway - until he admits his student visa has expired and he's in the country illegally. Holland impulsively offers to wed the Irishman to keep him in New York, her growing infatuation a secret only to him.

Let’s be honest I’ve been a fan girl for Christina Lauren since B.B. and they have never disappointed, however I am disappointed now, because I am in serious need of an encore. I have had a book boyfriend in Will since he was first mentioned in their books but he has now be replaced by a Beautiful Irish man. Colin is seriously everything that I would want in a mate, he’s loving, kind, encouraging, faithful, and even when his dreams come true and he could have anyone he still wants his girl! I love this and I need to know what happens after ...

This was an easy read, pretty quick you won’t want to put it down until you finish it! The narrator is amazing and truly does bring this story to life, and the story itself is just so real! More than ever before I believe this is their best book yet and they have truly grown as writers! This book is realistic and heartwarming, and seriously swoon worthy!

It is enough to break any man: watching what could have been my future slip away before it was ever in my grasp. The possibility of losing someone I loved before she was even mine is something I never would have imagined. Certainly nothing I'd ever wish on anyone. I go to her every day and wait. Wait for the impossible, for a sign, for her to look at me...hoping that sinners are granted miracles, too.

One of these days she’s going to take in the wrong stray dog, and it’s not going to end well.BronteMy brother has no right to talk about Brewster that way — no right to threaten him. There’s a reason why Brewster can’t have friends — why he can’t care about too many people.

I love all things Mortal Instruments and this book has been no different. I loved that we were able to stay connected to the original Shadowhunters as well as develop a relationship with the new group. We knew some of what Emma and Julian were like but this is on a whole other level! Can’t wait until the next book I need to know what happens between the two of them!

I love how this book tackled some of the aspects no other author has yet to do. What is it like to already be an independent woman then to fall in love with a man who doesn't even buy his own groceries. How money is now in the forefront of your relationship because at the heart of it all you will always feel like it's his money and never truly your money. I do love what he did for her in the end and how he is able to give her something that became theirs!

As for the other characters in the book!!! Wow!!! The drama never stops, the laughs are continuous, and the gifts are over the top, but you can feel the love and depth of this family and that is what makes this series interesting and makes me ready for the next book!

So this story line was a bit different than the writing I was typically use to. There was less humor and way more heart. I have truly fallen for Amanda!!! She is strong and caring and just an amazing person. She doesn't let her fear of anything hold her back. She is relatable and reliable! She made this story for me. Andrew, at times, was a jerk! He allowed fear to hold him back from life. A fear worth having but he used it as a crutch, which I disapprove of! I love the ending and how their HEA! Can't wait until the next book!

Dad gave me my late mother's engagement ring, platinum and diamonds galore. Shannon wouldn't care if I slid a giant hard-candy ring on her finger instead of a three-carat diamond designed to impress. But my future mother-in-law, Marie, will pass out when she sets eyes on that rock, which will give us two minutes of blessed silence ... I was going to make it perfect, from the color of the tablecloth to the freshness of the roses. And it was perfect...until Shannon swallowed the ring.

This series continues to get better from office fights, to poop talk it was a LOL type of book. I am still loving Declan and how much of an Alpha man he is, especially when it comes to Shannon! Hate that the tender moments got interrupted, but I hope we hear more about the topics in the next book. Can't wait to continue the series!
I also truly love how the narrator brings the story to life.

He's not the guy you date. He's the one night stand. You'd think the man who sends hot looks my way, who called me succulent, would want to strip me to my skin and spread me out on his bed like every other woman in Chicago. Except, he passed on my offer.... Just like I once passed on his. He's wary, like I am. He's broken, like I am. And everyone knows two broken parts can't ever make a whole.

Honestly I have waited for this story since I first read Manwhore. I knew Tahoe and Gina (Regina) would be explosive and I was not disappointed. I truly loved the buildup, and the delivery!!
There is more to Tahoe than he tries to portray. He is kind, loyal, loving, protective, and just an all around amazing man. I love how true of a friend he is for her. That he would stop ANYTHING when she comes a calling. I love that he is such a family man, and the relationship he has with the few people in his intimate circle. I just love me some T-REX.
Gina, Gina, Regina. This woman right here is so very relatable. She is a woman who is willing to work hard to get her dreams working. No job is too good for her. She is wiling to do what she has to do to better herself. She knows her flaws and will admit to it. She learns what her worth is throughout this story and never stops trying to find the perfect ONE. She knows who she wants and when he isn't able to give it to her she takes what she can and tries to move on. I love that she has T in her life to ensure she doesn't get hurt, and I love how he reacts when he thinks she is!
As you can tell I love everything about this story and can't wait to listen to it now that I've read it!
This is an epically quick read and I can honestly say that I need more of this ladies man!
Seriously can't wait to see his reaction to his sister and his best friend!!!!!! Hahahahahhaah now that's going to be a wicked story.... Can't wait!

I liked this book. I liked that it ended with a HEA but that it didn't come easy. I liked this storyline and that Shannon and her family/friends are so relatable. This book was a good wrap up, but I am glad to see that others like me wanted more and she delivered it with the continuation of this series! I look forward to listening to the rest of their crazy story, and how HEA looks.
