Love in the Spotlight (The Hollywood Showmance Chronicles Book 4) by Olivia Jaymes




Blurb:
It’s a simple request… 

Sam's mother needs him to pretend to date a pretty kindergarten teacher named Riley who has been dumped by her jerk of a boyfriend.  The one thing he cannot do is say no to his mom so of course he agrees.  He’s on vacation after all and it’s only a few nights.  He’ll make the other guy jealous and then head back home.  

But it has become way more complicated… 

Sam discovers he really likes Riley.  A whole hell of a lot.  She’s the kind of woman he could get serious about.  If he was the kind of guy who got serious.  But he’s not.  They’ll have one week of unforgettable romance and passion but in the end he’ll have to walk away.   No matter how much he wants to stay.

My review:
A pretend date with a kindergarten teacher turns into so much more for movie star Sam Collins. Sam is in his mid-forties and has a failed marriage under his belt and no plans to repeat. That is until kindergarten teacher Riley Bridges comes up pregnant from their one night stand.
Sam is a protector and wants to do the right thing. Riley doesn’t want him if he isn’t all in. He is going to have to come to terms with the past in order to have a future.
I really enjoyed this story. Riley doesn’t let Sam get away with less than his best and his best is pretty darn great.

Dragon's Curvy Concierge (Dragon's Curvy Romance #3) by Mychal Daniels




Blurb:
“I don’t know what you heard about me, but I’m not in that sort of business. I’m a concierge, not a concubine!”
To her retreating back, he lobbed, “And, I want neither of those. I want you.”
When Bronwyn Scott finds herself way over her head as the first time business owner of a personal concierge service, she’s not about to fall for a rich mystery man trying to test her professionalism at every turn.

***
When Bronwyn Scott finds herself way over her head as the first time business owner of a personal concierge service, she’s not about to fall for a rich mystery man trying to test her professionalism at every turn.
Determined to make her business a great success to find and show the mother who left her at birth that she made something of herself, Bronwyn has no time for games or entitled, gorgeous rich dudes.

MacMillan “Mac” Kelnar is at that time in his life where his business can run itself, he’s successful, powerful, and a mature Dragon who’s paid his dues.
When he sees his mate across the parking lot of a Home Improvement Center parking lot as she suffers a hit and run, he’ll stop at nothing to have her, even if that means pretending to hire her as his personal concierge.
Determined to have his mate, this Dragon will stop at nothing until his mate realizes that the only services he's interested in are having all of her.
 

My review:
Dragon's Curvy Concierge answers the question what happens when a dragon finds his mate and assumes she wants him back.
MacMillan “Mac” Kelnar spots Bronwyn Scott across the parking lot and knows she is the one for him. Now all he has to do is convince the spunky small business owner that they were meant to be.
I loved Bronwyn. She is smart, energetic, sweet and determined to succeed. Mac is wildly successful, hunky, and determined to win his mate. He is also male and destined to screw up. We have the fun watching him work for it.
This is a sweet, sexy, fun escape.

Bound in Ashes (Drachen Mates Book 4) by Milly Taiden




Blurb:

COMPLETELY STANDALONE 
Check out the conclusion of the Drachen Mates Series in this sexy novel. 

Tiana Jonas’s life is unexciting. Nothing happens. Except her technical support calls with Ker Drachen. He’s got the sexiest voice if her wet panties are any sign. Boring goes out the window when her house is burglarized and an undiscovered body bleeds out on her kitchen floor. Ker comes to her rescue with a place to hide away. She just needs to keep her clothes on. That’s proving a lot harder than she thought. 

Ker Drachen is obsessed with the sweet school teacher, Tiana. Her voice alone gives him wet dreams. When she gets into trouble, every protective instinct in him demands he guard his woman. Except, she’s not his. Not by dragon mark. But that won’t get in his way. Someone trying to kill her might be a problem, though. Then again, so might the fact she’s the most innocent, and desirous woman he’s ever met. 

Romancing Tiana isn’t easy when danger follows her like a shadow, but Ker is determined to prove to her he’s the man for her in every hot, slick, and dirty way possible. He’s going to win her love and keep her. That’s all good, but he might have to die to show her how much he cares. Unless she gives up her life for him first. 

My review:
Tiana Jonas is a school teacher who knows her worth. Until now she hasn’t found anyone worthy of her. Not even her stalker ex. But (dragon shifter) Ker Drachen can melt her with his voice alone. When danger threatens Tiana Ker comes to the rescue and they become closer. Tiana’s past hides a lot of secrets that may just get them both killed.
Acton, adventure, love and steamy sex this book has it all. I loved Tiana and kept imagining Ker with a late night DJ’s voice.  A satisfying conclusion to the Drachen Mates.

Knight Nostalgia: A Knights of the Board Room Anthology by Joey W. Hill



Blurb:

A whole new anthology featuring the beloved Knights of the Board Room characters… 

Conqueror's Fantasy – When Matt Kensington takes Savannah to The Resort as an anniversary gift, they will explore their Dominant and submissive relationship to untold new depths. But on their last day there, Matt plans one more special surprise for his wife. He will bring to life a fantasy she’s held since the unforgettable night he made his feelings clear to her in his board room. A role-playing fantasy Savannah never expected to share with her practical husband. But Matt refuses to let even one of her fantasies go unfulfilled. 

Girls' Day Out – Ben O’Callahan considers himself a brave man. But he ponders putting in for extreme hazard pay when he volunteers to take the wives of the K&A men out for a day of shopping and girl talk. There’s already some serious compensation, however. He has the chance to spend the day with Marcie, and prove to her sister Cass he can be the man Marcie needs him to be. 

The Card Game – For the past several years, Rachel has learned what it means to be loved, as a wife and cherished submissive. Yet some shadows of the past continue to cling. Then the K&A men plan an after-hours poker game, and offer Rachel and Dana the opportunity to be the jackpot, required to do whatever the man who wins each hand commands. With the chance to serve the “Knights of the Board Room” in a way she’s always dreamed about, Rachel will dispel the shadows once and for all, and finally believe in the unshakable love of her Master.


My review:

m/f, f/f, m/f/f/m

For fans of the Knights of the Board Room this book will melt your socks. All of these stories take place before Ben & Marcie marry in Hostile Takeover.

Conqueror's Fantasy – We get a better understanding of Matt and Savannah’s relationship as they vacation on a fantasy island where Matt attempts to give his wife the fantasy of her dreams. Like their relationship this is a cerebral trip that will inspire fantasies for me for a long time to come.

Girls' Day Out – Ben takes the girls out shopping while and we get to see the caring side of him that isn’t as obvious in some of the other books. It made me like him better. I really enjoyed watching him interact with Dana and Cass and of course his very own bad girl Marcie. This may have been my favorite story in the book even though it has the least amount of sex.

The Card Game – Break out the fan and a cold drink it’s about to get sizzling hot. This story is multidimensional. This story is mostly Rachels. She has a f/f fantasy that Jon wants to fulfill for her but he also wants to build up her self-esteem that was so damaged by her ex. The guys are more than happy to help as is Dana. I really liked how Jon and the guys used this occasion to help out Rachel. There is a scene where usually stoic Matt had me close to tears.

All in all a fantastic read that I will read over and over again.

Hearts and Flour by Tara Lain




Blurb:
Can a raw food enthusiast find love with a guy who bakes cupcakes?

When Micah Truveen’s devoted health-food customers start showing up with white flour, Micah wants to chew nails! To make his misery worse, he finds his yoga teacher boyfriend in bed with another guy the day before Valentine’s Day. Micah decides to drown his misery at a friend’s anti-Valentine’s Day orgiastic hookup party—and meets the beautiful Queen, a gorgeous cross-dresser who’s got Southern sugah in his mouth and the right equipment under the dress. But when the hookup turns serious, Micah has to compromise to protect Queen’s secrets from his beloved grandmother. With everything against them, can two hearts rise above the flour?

Second Edition
First Edition published by Etopia Press, January 2013

My review:
m/m
Hearts and Flour by Tara Lain is a sweet m/m that is perfect for Valentines Day. Micah and Queen meet at an anti-Valentine’s Day bash. Micah was hurting after he found his live in lover of the past year in bed with another guy the day before. Queen is new to town and saw it as a way to meet some of the gay community. The attraction is instantaneous and the chemistry is off the charts. That is until Micah the health food nut finds out that Queen is the owner of Charismatic Cupcakes the place that is luring his health conscious customers to the dark side.
I loved everything about Queen but his accent. I live in the south and well… I felt for Micah but he too has issues. But by the end I liked them both a whole lot more. Mostly I liked Nee Nee. A fun sweet read.

Eternal Mourning (Talon Pack #7) by Carrie Ann Ryan



Blurb:
In the seventh book of the Talon Pack series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a Healer is forced to come to grips with the idea that he can’t save everyone…including the woman he loves.

Walker Brentwood vowed to the moon goddess that he’d protect his Pack and Heal with every last ounce of his power. He’s watched his siblings and cousin battle the worst circumstances to find love and is now afraid that the one woman who could be his might not have much time left. The rules of mating have changed, and Walker will do what he has to in order to protect the bonds that have eluded him for so long.

Aimee Reagan knows there’s something wrong with her. She’s known since the first time she found out shifters were real and magic existed. When the Talon Pack’s enemy sets his sights on her, her battle to survive becomes even harder.

Walker and Aimee must turn to each other when the powers around them change and the paths that had been laid before them are no longer clear. But when their passion threatens a curse far older than anyone dreamed, they’ll only have one chance to save something worth more than a mating bond. Their future.

My review:
Walker finds his mate! Life in the pack since the unveiling has been a challenge. They have rules put in place to appease the humans that won’t allow them to change someone unless they are a mate. Blade, the Alpha of the Aspen pack continues to create problems for the Talons. And Walker thinks he may have finally found his mate. When he finally finds the woman he thinks may be his mate (darned screwed up mating call) she is dying from something he can’t cure as she is human and not of the pack. Walker has always wanted what his brothers and cousins have. A mate. But Aimee is dying and human doctors can’t find anything wrong with her. Walker will do whatever is necessary to save her and convince her she is his.
Eternal Mourning is an emotional rollercoaster that will have you rooting out loud for the good guys and booing the bad guys. Bring on Kameron.
