MISADVENTURES WITH THE BOSS by Kendall Ryan

At age twenty-nine, Piper Daniels is having the longest dry spell of her life. When she agrees to be set up on a blind date, she never expects it to end with the hottest sex of her life.

But when she discovers that her very well-endowed secret lover is also her new boss, heartless womanizer and cutthroat CEO Jackson Dane, she chalks it up to a one-time mistake and puts up her best professional front. But Jackson isn’t used to rejection, and if Piper thinks it’s going to be easy to move on from their tryst, she’s underestimated his determination.

MY REVIEW

This is the second book in the Misadventures Series and so far have been truly standalone books. I’ve read a few of Ms Ryan’s books, and I’ve enjoyed each.

Piper is new to the city, but hasn’t really gotten out of her apartment. I absolutely loved the opening line “My Netfilx account was judging me.” I know I’ve thought the same thing binge watching. But Piper’s sister isn’t going to let her keep it up. After creating a profile on a dating site, Hailey sets Piper up on a date. Enter Jackson, the incredibly hot one night stand. Fast forward a bit to the first day of her new job, Jackson is her new boss. Loved these two from the beginning. Piper is an organized sweetheart. Jackson is a dreamy alpha, but totally upfront he’s not after a relationship. As you can possibly imagine, trying to be just coworkers after their one night poses a challenge. The dynamics between Piper and Jackson are steamy and very entertaining.

Another winner from the talented Kendall Ryan.

Title: Bad Boy M.D.
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Description:
It was only meant to be a dating app hookup. Turns out HeartBreaker531 isn’t an anonymous medical student after all—he’s my new chief resident…
As one of the top cardiac surgeons in the United States, Dr. Lauren Decker is fearless in the operating room, but her personal life is a different story. After her surgeon ex-husband cheated on her with a nurse half his age, Lauren has sworn off men—doctors, specifically. Never again.
But one day, the sexy and infuriatingly cocky Ryan Castle arrives. Looking to be the newest resident on staff, he challenges Lauren’s resolve to protect her heart. He’s gorgeous, ten years younger, a smartass at the top of his game, and soon, Lauren finds herself fighting fantasies of late-night trysts in the cardiology wing.
Like Lauren, Ryan’s been burned by love, but what starts out as an irresistible challenge to get Lauren into bed soon turns into more. She’s fighting what she feels by giving him the cold shoulder, and there’s only one thing to do.
Turn up the heat in the ER.
EXCERPT:
As we stared into each other’s eyes the realization that I was standing almost butt ass naked in front of a resident at my hospital who was more than ten years younger than me hit me. What was I doing? No matter how Samuel’s phone call had angered me, I shouldn’t be here. I moved my arm to cover my bare chest, but Ryan’s hand darted out and caught my wrist before I could.
“Walk to my bedroom,” he said, his voice commanding. “Second door on the right.”
He raised my hand to his lips for a gentle kiss before giving me a firm slap to my ass.
“Walk.”
I’d never felt so wet from a single word in my entire life. I stepped forward and looked over my shoulder to watch my hand slip from Ryan’s grasp. He looked me up and down, from my heels to my hair. He licked his lips and I grinned before continuing down the hall. My legs threatened to shake and I swore even his neighbors could hear the thundering of my heart, but I’d never felt such a sexual thrill so I kept walking till I reached his bedroom: the second door on the right.
I stood just inside his room, uncertain what to do next before I felt hands on my waist and kisses down my goosebump covered neck.
“What do you want?” he whispered.
My eyes fluttered shut when one hand slid up to my breast and the other teased the lace trim of my thong.
“Hmm?” he asked, pinching my nipple to get my attention.
“What do you mean?” I asked breathlessly.
There was a little laugh in my ear.
“I mean,” he said, fingers tracing around my clit over my panties, “you must have a way you like it best. On your knees. Pressed against the wall, ass in the air. In the shower. You on top, riding my cock as I fuck up into you.”
I leaned against his chest as my knees nearly wobbled. Samuel never liked me on top. He said it took too long. Said it didn’t feel as good for him. He liked two minutes of missionary and then a nap. Fuck him.
“I want to be on top,” I said, my voice more confident than I was expecting.
Ryan’s dick twitched against my ass in response and he nipped at my earlobe.
“I was hoping you would say that. Stay right there.”
He moved away from me and I nearly fell over. He kicked off his boxers and retrieved a condom from his nightstand. I caught my first look at his bare dick freed from its constraints and got slightly nervous. Fully hard and already leaking precum, he was huge.
But soon he was back behind me and he was kissing his way down my back before kneeling. I gasped when I felt his teeth scraping against my ass as he bit my thong and dragged it down my legs in his mouth. While down there he paused to lick a wet, hot line along my pussy and my thighs contracted instinctively.
Ryan stood up and lifted me into his arms and carried me to the bed, my legs locked around his waist. He eased himself onto the sheets and then I was in his lap, staring into his eyes. His thumbs rubbed comforting circles against my back as he waited. It was clear the next move was mine. He was asking if I wanted this. He was asking if I wanted him.

My Review

Fun and sexy! Lauren sexted with a man on a dating app, then promptly deleted her profile. Imagine her shock and surprise when that same man, Dr. Ryan Castle, shows up at her hospital as her new attending. Lauren has big issues with their age difference. Ryan is roughly 10 yrs younger than Lauren. But the attraction between them is strong.

Throw in some lousy (I want to use a different word here, but I try to keep my reviews profanity-free) moves from Lauren’s ex-husband (I love Ryan’s description of Samuel), and cross-Ryan’s-heart it was an accident, spilt coffee. You have drama to go right along with the comedic moments in this book. It’s been a while since I’ve read one of Ms. DePaul’s book, I forgot how much I love her work.

My Review

Aurora Rose Reynolds is one of my favorite authors. First book I ever read by her was Until Jax, loved it so much went back to the original Until series and fell in love with the parents’ stories. I have never been disappointed in any book of hers, and Until Harmony is not an exception.

Harlen and Harmony are throughly entertaining. The way Harlen more or less “worms” his way into Harmony’s life. Nico, my fav from the parents, and his attempts to scare Harlen l away from his daughter. I could not put this down!

TAP THAT by Jennifer Blackwood & RC Boldt

Title: Tap That
Authors: Jennifer Blackwood & RC Boldt
Genre: Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: March 6, 2018
Blurb
The beer’s not the only thing getting tapped.

CALLIE

I have a secret. It’ll get me fired if my boss ever finds out…which shouldn’t be a problem except for one thing: my coworker, Reid Morgan.

He’s cocky, aggravating, and that hot-as-sin mouth simultaneously makes me want to slap him and melt into the mattress.

Now that he’s discovered my secret, he’s doing everything in his power to take my job.

REID

I have a problem: my pint-size spitfire of a coworker who’s primed to take my promotion.

She’s infuriating, sexy as hell, and I just can’t seem to keep my hands off her.

Now we’re both vying for the same position…and only one of us can come out on top.

My Review

Overall, a throughly entertaining book, although Reid occasionally got on my nerves with his horrific attitude. Callie is brought in, on a probationary period, as manager for On Tap. One slight problem with that, well, actually two problems, Reid wanted that manager job and Callie HATES beer, the drink On Tap is know for.

Throw in some juvenile behavior, some very sexy, steamy moments, a best friend who tries to help fix things, and a few surprises, you have a winner of a book. I hope these two authors will get together again. I’m hoping for a book for Grayson now.

BABY DADDY by Kendall Ryan

A hot and hilarious new standalone from New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan.

We met in a trapped elevator.

Emmett was on his way to work, sophisticated and handsome in his tailored suit and tie.

I was on my way to the sperm bank. Awkward, right?

At thirty-five, my life hadn’t taken the path I thought it would and I was tired of waiting—I wanted a baby. And I was ready to take matters into my own hands to make it happen.

After our ill-fated elevator encounter, Emmett insisted on taking me to dinner—he also insisted on something else—that I ditch my plan involving a turkey baster and let him do the job. He would be my baby daddy. He was a wealthy and powerful CEO with little interest in diapers or playdates. And since he didn’t want kids, I’d be on my own once his bun was in my oven, free to go my own way.

But once his baby was inside me, it was like a switch had been flipped, and I got a whole lot more than I ever bargained for.

This full-length standalone contains a hot, swoonworthy hero, lots of playful banter and some hot baby-making ! Enjoy.

 My Review

Who knew getting stuck in an elevator would lead to such an entertaining story. Of course their chances of survival would not be high if they were seriously stuck.

A bit predictable only in the fact if you try for a baby the old fashioned way, feelings have a high probability of coming into play. But this in no way takes away from the overall charm of Emmett and Jenna’s story. “Ground rules” are laid out at the very beginning, but I loved how feelings quickly started changing but each was reluctant to let those feelings known. A few twists and surprises along the way. This is a wonderfully sexy book.

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author of more than two dozen titles, Kendall Ryan has sold over 1.5 million books and her books have been translated into several languages in countries around the world. She’s a traditionally published author with Simon & Schuster and Harper Collins UK, as well as an independently published author.

My Review

When I was younger, I read historical romances all the time. But now, my tastes are a more contemporary romances. When I saw the opportunity to read Devil in Tartan, I was intrigued by the blurb. So, I read my first Julia London book. I was not disappointed. It’s a great story with powerful characters. Aulay and Lottie make an interesting duo, of course it takes a while for them to get there.

Excerpt

She sank onto a chair, suddenly aware of the heaviness that pervaded every limb, exhaustion settling in. She crossed her arms on the table, lay her head down on them and closed her eyes…but visions of the day plagued her mind’s eye.

It was a catastrophe—there could be no other word that would adequately describe it. It had really begun a fortnight ago, in the early evening of Sankt Hans, the annual celebration of midsummer. The Livingstone clan had been preparing for a play, one written and produced by Duff. Duff fancied himself quite the actor, and he’d rallied a few members of the clan to join his theatrical troupe. There were six of them set to perform when they heard the warning horn from Old Donnie. He lived on the tip of the island just across the loch from Port Appin, and it was his job to sound the horn if anything or anyone should come to the island.

Everyone had frantically begun to gather up incriminating whisky jugs. “What of the play?” Duff had wailed unhappily.

It just so happened that Lottie’s horse, Stjerne, was still saddled from her participation in the pony races, and when she saw Norval and Bear Livingstone leap to their horses, she joined them. It was the way of things on Lismore—she was always in the thick of things.

She’d not been the least surprised to find Laird Campbell, his periwig tightly curled and overly powdered, skulking among the rabbits. It wasn’t his first attempt to find the stills. Naturally, Mr. Edwin MacColl, the chief of the clan who inhabited what the Livingstones considered to be the good side of their island, would accompany him.

Lottie had always liked Mr. MacCollas long as he stayed on his end of the island. He was a widower, his children grown and married with children of their own. He was older than Lottie’s father, but still had a broad chest and thick, snowy brows that slid up when he smiled wistfully at Lottie as he was wont to do.

But his visits to the north end had become all too frequent of late, and quite recently, he’d suggested to Bernt that Lottie might make him a good wife. “I’ve a nice house for her to keep, plenty of food for the table,” he’d suggested, apparently considering these two facts to be his better points of persuasion.

Lottie had not been surprised by the offer. Frankly, on an island where unmarried lassies were not plentiful, every man seemed to believe himself her perfect match, just as her mother had predicted, God rest her soul.

Her mother had warned Lottie of her allure to males. “You’re a beauty, lass, and men are drawn to beauty to their own detriment like moths to light, aye? You must no’ allow them to turn your head with bonny words and empty promises. You must be diligent in seeking the man who honors you for your heart and no’ your face, then, do you understand me? And beware your own father, lass—aye, he loves you, more than life, he does, but he’s easily persuaded by the promises of others.”

CASH by Scott Hildreth

CASH (Devil’s Disciples MC Book 2)

by Scott Hildreth

Blurb:

When I ran out in front of his speeding motorcycle, I was desperate. I had no idea who he was. I needed help, and he was my only prayer.

Cash Flannigan was handsome. He was intense. He was irresistible. And, he was a member of Devil’s Disciples MC.

He was exactly what I needed to get out of a jam at that instant, but not at all what I needed in my life.

But, as a “thank you” for him saving me on that dreadful night, I agreed to go on a date.

After all, I was divorced, sexually deprived, and reaching an age where it seemed no one wanted me.

Having a young biker look at me with lustful eyes was a nice change.

A change that made me tingle in all the right places.

One date wouldn’t hurt

Just one…

Review:

OK, I admit it, I’m a tad addicted to Scott Hildreth’s writing. I was a quarter through another book and set it aside, just to read Cash. And I was not disappointed.

When I read Baker, and we were first introduced to Cash, I didn’t like him. Plain and simple. He was a hothead, who acted and spoke without thinking. And in a way, I kind of hoped he’d get written out of this series. While I still think of him being a hothead, he has become much more likable after finishing this book. Cash and Kimberly make quite the duo, and with Kimberly being 13 yrs Cash’s senior, really makes for an enjoyable story. The dealings with Marvin, Kimberly’s ex, were just what a lowlife like Marvin deserves.

Mr. Hildreth has said himself, this is not like his other MC series, and I agree wholeheartedly. Cash is a standalone and can be read easily without reading reading Baker first. But I suggest reading the series in order to get the most out of it.

BAKER by Scott Hildreth

BAKER (Devil’s Disciples MC Book 1)

by Scott Hildreth

Blurb:

ANDY – The day my bank was robbed by six masked men was the worst day of my life. The next day, I lost my job for not following protocol during the robbery. Eventually, I found a new job. Luckily, it was right next door to the sexiest man I’d ever met. His name was Baker. He was a biker, a badass, and he was sex on a stick.

BAKER – Six months after my MC robbed a bank, a familiar face moved in next door – the manager of the bank we’d robbed. She had no idea who I was, but I never forgot the faces of my victims. Especially when they were as smokin’ hot as she was.

Review:

First book in a new series and I can’t wait to see where this MC goes next.

The Devil’s Disciples is not like any of Mr. Hildreth’s last MC clubs he’s created. Baker’s MC is not remotely law abiding. In fact, that’s how Baker first meets Andy, robbing her bank. Things get interesting when Andy’s new job puts her right next door to the MC’s clubhouse. I like most of the other guys in this little MC, but I’m not sure Cash is one of them. His personality just rubs me the wrong way so far.

Overall, great start for the new series, but there were a few unanswered questions. I’m hoping those will be addressed in future books.

Oh, hello there! Forgive the tone of surprise; it’s been quite some time since I’ve had a visitor, especially one such as yourself.

This is probably weird for you, talking to a book. Well, let me tell you nothing is weirder than being trapped inside of one. This one in fact.

You still there? Oh good! The name’s Chance. What’s yours?

It’s a pleasure to meet you and even more so that you’ve stuck around! Now this may be a strange request, but I was wondering if it would be possible for you to help me out of my situation?

If so, all I need you to do is open this book to find out more…

My Review

Very short, quick read, but unlike ANYTHING I’ve read before. I’m not sure what I can say about this awesome book without giving any spoilers. I was sucked in from the beginning. Almost to the point I worried I’d be joining Chase. I’m just absolutely blown away by Mr. Czermak’s talented writing.

DECADENT DREAMS by Nicole Garcia

DECADENT DREAMS
by Nicole Garcia

BLURB

Nico

My dreams haunt me. I feel as if I am falling into a pit of impending doom, but even that has not prepared me for the roller-coaster of emotions that flood over me when I’m near Phoenix. I have to keep my distance from her. I need to. It’s the only thing I can do to keep from getting hurt again. Staying away from her proves to be a much harder task than I could have ever imagined. She’s not only my assistant, she’s half my age. She gets under my skin and irritates the shit out of me, yet, one smile, one laugh, and I’m melting into a puddle at her feet. Falling in love with her is a bad idea, a very bad idea because she just may be the one who breaks my heart for good this time.

Phoenix
Nico is my boss. He’s demanding, bitter, brooding, and a downright bully at times. But, all that doesn’t deter me from him at all because I can see the kindness and compassion in his eyes. I know the secret he’s keeping from everyone and why he’s so guarded with his heart. I don’t care about his secret, nor do I care that he’s twice my age. What matters is the undeniable attraction we feel for each other. If only he can just let go of the past and see what’s right in front of him.

 

MY REVIEW

I love the combination of Nico and Phe. The two have vastly different personalities which which makes for some very entertaining moments. But one thing they have in common is both are incredibly stubborn. Both are bad at jumping to conclusions, Nico especially. Enough that a time or two (or five or six) I wanted to reach in the book and slap them upside the head. But fantastic story despite occasional frustration with the behavior of theses two on my part. Now we just need books for Gio and Josh (separately of course). But seriously, watching Nico and Phe is a rollercoaster you don’t want to miss.

Additional on the Audible version….

Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross are without a doubt my two favorite narrators. Both bring the books they read to life. And I could easily listen to them for unending hours. Phenomenal job!
