THE LEARNING HOURS by Sara Ney

He’s not a douchebag;

but that doesn’t stop his friends from

turning him into one.

 

MY FRIENDS WANT ME TO GET LAID.

So much so that they plastered my ugly mug all over campus, in bold printed letters:

Are you the lucky lady who’s going to break our roommate’s cherry?

Him: socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: must have pulse. Text him at: 555-254-5551

The morons can’t even spell. And the texts I’ve been receiving are what wet dreams are made of. But I’m not like these douchebags, no matter how hard they try to turn me into one.

THIS ISN’T THE KIND OF ATTENTION I WANT.

One text stands out from hundreds. One number I can’t bring myself to block. She seems different. Hotter, even in black and white.

 

However, after seeing her in person, I know she’s not the girl for me. But my friends won’t let up–they just don’t get it. Douchebags or not, there’s one thing they’ll never understand: GIRLS DON’T WANT ME.

Especially her.

He’s seated at a table in the far corner when I spot him from the door. He’s not hard to miss–not with his purple t-shirt in a sea of black and yellow, and wavy mussed hair.

He’s slouching, hunched over his table.

Defeated. Tired.

My stomach rolls with nerves, nerves that have me rooted to the spot in the doorway, watching him.
Just watching.

For the entire four minutes I stand here, he sits immobile, studying his laptop, eyes moving along the screen, completely transfixed by whatever he’s reading.

Learning.

“Just go over there,” I whisper to myself, blowing out a puff of pent-up air.

I put one foot in front of the other and begin toward him, spine ramrod straight, steeling myself, prepared for another argument.

Twenty feet.

Fifteen.

Eight.

Two.

“Hi.”

No reply.

“Do you mind if I sit here?” I lay my hand on the back of the wooden chair across from him, intending to pull it out.

He stiffens but doesn’t lift his head. “Yes I mind.”

“Would you mind if I sat at the table next to you?” I’m pushing his buttons, looking for a reaction, but he only spares me a brief glance.

Shrugs. “Free country.”

I bite my lip to hide a smile, glad he didn’t tell me to take a hike…


 MY REVEIW

I like the story for the most part. Some of the college pranks and behaviors really got on my nerves. And I almost stopped listening/reading. Guess I’m too old to REALLY enjoy college age stories. But in the long run, I really liked it the story itself.

The audio left a bit to be desired. Both narrators have great sounding voices and are pleasant to listen to. Muffy Newton did a decent job using different voices for the different charaters. But in my opinion, Josh really didn’t have any distinctive voices for the different characters. For example, Rhett is from Louisiana. Lived there his whole life until transferring to Iowa. He has southern manners and uses southern slang, but almost never had a southern accent. I only hear the occasional hint of a southern “twang”.

DRUNK ON YOU by Harper Sloan

 

 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00005]It was supposed to be fun.

A mutual use of each other’s bodies.

To be a ruse to the world around us.

I wanted to be free from my ex, and he wanted to escape his.

 

One drunken night turned a joke into a life-changing moment.

He warned me not to fall for him, and I should’ve listened.

 

He intoxicated me.

He made me crave him.

He ruined me.

In the end, I’ll never be the same.

My Review

 

Overall I did really enjoy this book. But I do have to say, at the beginning of this book, I was not a fan of Shane, but I adore Nikki. Both Nikki and Shane were “introduced” in a previous book (When I’m With You), but this is a standalone book. Nikki is Ember’s best friend and I love the bond between these two women. Shane is Nate’s friend and business partner, so Ember and Nate make appearances. Nikki and Shane both having clingy exes makes for an interesting twist. So does Shane’s fluent use of French on occasion (don’t worry, it’s all translated). There are certainly some twists I didn’t expect and an issue/question or two I wish had been resolved (but that’s my wishful thinking).

All in all, another sexy, scorching hot book from Ms. Sloan. She will always be one of my click-first-read-the-synopsis-later authors. I have never been disappointed in anything she has written.

THE WRIGHT MISTAKE by K.A. Linde

 

 

 

A new stand alone enemies-to-lovers romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I spent six weeks screwing Austin Wright’s brains out and all I got was this broken heart.

He can’t be trusted. Not with my body or my heart. Yet, two years have passed and I still crave him like an addict needing a fix.

The last time we tried this, it nearly ruined me. I know I should run and never look back. But his dark haunted eyes and razor blade smile speak to my soul. His touch sets my body on fire. And we all know what happens when you light gasoline. Someone is bound to get burned.

A second chance might destroy us both.

Because everyone knows two wrongs don’t make a Wright.

MY REVEIW

This is the first book I’ve read by K.A. Linde. That said, even though this is NOT the first Wright book, it can be read as a standalone. This book does deal with some serious issues, alcoholism and domestic abuse, but it’s not the entire focus of this book.

The road to Julia and Austin’s romance is definitely a rocky one to say the least. Austin has alcohol issues and Julia has a major secret. It was interesting to watch the interplay between these two and their friends and family just added to everything. Julia needs to come clean with her secrets and Austin needs to face his issues. Things do come to a head and reading the ensuing results had me eager for the final results.

The Wright Mistake was a book I really enjoyed. I think I need to go check out the past Wright books now.

OUT OF LOVE by RC Boldt

Synopsis

Foster Kavanaugh, former Navy SEAL, knows what it’s like to be the top dog, the man in charge, the one calling the shots. Now that he’s running his own security consulting firm, not much has changed.

Except the curvy blonde he hired as his office manager.

Noelle Davis has been through the damn ringer. Swearing off men after escaping a toxic relationship, she’s grateful for a fresh start—new job included. Except her job isn’t tranquil and calm. In fact, it’s quite the opposite because her boss is the most infuriating man on the planet.

And, not to mention, sexy as hell.

Foster has limits. Rules. No attachments allowed because he doesn’t do love—and Noelle Davis foiled that plan and took a red pen to his list of rules. With her smart mouth and quick witted banter, he found the woman beginning to creep past his defenses.

When circumstances put Noelle in a perilous position, the first person to come to her rescue is none other than Foster Kavanaugh. She gets to see the man in action—not as her aggravating boss, but the man who will stop at nothing to keep her safe.

The same man who makes her want to reconsider her self-imposed embargo of men.

The man she wants to get to know now that she’s seen another side of him.

The man who makes her want…more. But is more possible when you’re OUT OF LOVE?

THE ROOM MATE by Kendall Ryan

 

RMbanner

 

room-mate_amazonThe 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 twenty-four, 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.

Fresh out of a messy breakup, he doesn’t want any entanglements. But I can resist, right?

I’m holding strong until the third night of our new arrangement when we get drunk and he confesses his biggest secret of all: he’s cursed when it comes to sex. Apparently he’s a god in bed, and women instantly fall in love with him.

I’m calling bullshit. In fact, I’m going to prove him wrong, and if I rack up a few much-needed orgasms in the process, all the better.

There’s no way I’m going to fall in love with Cannon. But once we start…I realize betting against him may have been the biggest mistake of my life.

My Review

I wasn’t sure what I was getting into starting this book. Prologue was a VERY interesting beginning to say the least. Cannon hasn’t had very good luck with the opposite sex. And when he’s evicted because of his recent ex, he has the opportunity to live with Paige for a couple months. I loved these two together. The spark and connection Cannon and Paige have is wonderful. Allie, Cannon’s older sister and Paige’s supposed best friend, is not my favorite person. Her selfish attitude really got on my nerves, but done in a way I was rooting even more for Cannon and Paige. The book is 5 stars from beginning to end. I was laughing, cussing, gasping, and wishing Cannon was for real.
