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.

Eli Hardy is tired of women who always act the same, do the same thing, and expect the same thing. He's ready to swear off women until he can get the rest of his life together. Two weeks into his no-women-rule he meets Lila. She's so damn sweet and polite. Like she walked right out of an etiquette book. But he'd already been drunk before she walked in so there was a good chance she might not be as stunning and perfect as he thinks. He's just too drunk to worry about that.

Although I did enjoy the next generation, it was not as good as the Rosemary beach set.

This book ended way to abruptly, as if the final chapter was left off.

James and Bianca's story draws to a close in the explosive conclusion to the Up In The Air Trilogy. After a short but earnest courtship, Bianca can no longer deny her feelings for James, and though she's tried her hardest, she can't help but see that he cares deeply for her, as well. In a completely uncharacteristic move, she has put aside her misgivings and agreed to live with the enigmatic billionaire. Is her leap of faith the beginning of something wonderful, or is it too much, too fast?

Rant: I was so happy previously, when he did not pierce her nipples, because it was a thing he did for subs that he had no true respect for. Then he pierced B's in anger and I was so disappointed in him for doing it and her for allowing it that I seriously had to stop reading for a while to get over it. grrrr

He is such a brat and often times his tantrums leave me rolling my eyes and wondering how she keeps from snacking him. The more the story goes along, the less I actually like him.

End Rant.

(I'm not against nipple piercings in general. )

Love the story but really struggling with narrator's Male voice.

Her female voice is fine but her male lead voice is the exact same as the female lead. Not only does that make it impossible to connect to the male lead but half the time I never know which one of the leads are speaking.

crazy frustrating.

also, only the first two books are on the romance package. The third and final book, you have to pay for separately.

Hard to rate a story that has no conclusion, no epilogue or no second book coming.

I feel cheated out of several hours.

Had there been an ending or another book coming, I probably would have rated this higher.

The favor seemed simple: Keep my new stepsister out of trouble for one summer. I've never met Grace Lee, but Mom tells me she's a quiet and artsy college student with a troubled past. When I agreed to let her stay with me, I thought it was no big deal. I expected to share my apartment with a sullen girl who'd spend hours locked in her room. I didn't expect a walking fantasy determined to make me lose my cool. I didn't expect a woman with secrets so dark, so deep, I'd throw away everything if it would save her from the past.

from the beginning of the story, her poor choices annoyed me and I was not interested enough to keep listening.

While I love Lexi Ryan and "Here and Now" is a favorite, I'm going to pass in this one.

Even though I didn't finish the story, Lexi is a great writer and story teller .

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....

One punch took him from Hollywood’s Golden Boy to Bad Boy Brody. The media didn’t care he was grieving his brother’s death. They descended on him, but to change his reputation, his manager got him a deal. Act in an indie film, one that already had Oscar buzz, and he’d get the movie roles he needed to secure his future. He took the deal. Yet he wasn’t prepared for the real-life people behind the script. He wasn’t prepared for the murder the movie was based on. And he really wasn’t prepared for her, the biggest secret of all. She was wild. She was beautiful. She defied gravity.
