REVIEW: Ruthless King

REVIEW: Ruthless King

Read a review of Ruthless King by Meghan March.

Now that he’s gone, Keira is left with a struggling business and a debt to the notorious Lachlan Mount.

If Fifty Shades of Grey made you blush, this is not the book for you. This book is for people who don’t mind stories that are gritty, angsty, or dark and twisty. This isn’t your grandma’s romance. This is a new and darker side to Meghan March!

She’s got a pinterest board and playlist and it all exactly what I pictured. Now, I want to attend a dinner party at Jessica’s house!

BOOK REVIEW: Hollywood Dirt

BOOK REVIEW: Hollywood Dirt

Read reviews from April and Aracely for Alessandra Torre's Hollywood Dirty.

Hollywood Dirty is an enemy to lovers tale with the passion that can only be found in the south.

REVIEW: Ghosted

REVIEW: Ghosted

Read a review of J.M. Darhower's Ghosted.

Ghosted is a wonderful story about young love, following your dreams, and the hope that everyone deserves a second chance. Darhower has given us a story about hard work, family, and she even threw in some pretty steamy sexiness. At the same time and more importantly, she has also given us a story with poignant and visceral commentary on important contemporary issues many families face. Darhower tackles some of the ugly situations of physical abuse, substance abuse, and being a single parent. She does it in a way that will make your heart bleed, but still have hope.

EXCERPT: Cocky Chef

EXCERPT: Cocky Chef

Read an excerpt from Cocky Chef by JD Hawkins. 

You can call me arrogant as much as you want. But when you're the best at what you do and have the hottest restaurant on the west coast, with enough Michelin stars to make Gordon Ramsay's head spin, you've earned the right to your confidence.

When I give an instruction in the kitchen, it's not a suggestion--it's an order. So when a new chef thinks she can do things her way, and dares to say so to my face, even her sharp wit and gorgeous pouty lips don't make it okay. 

But I have to admit, she's got talent. She's creative in the kitchen and not even that double-breasted chef jacket can hide her perfect body. As I get to know her, I can't help wanting to know everything she thinks. I've never met a more talented chef. And I've never met a sassier and sexier woman in my life.

There's only one way this push and pull can end.

With her in my bed, begging for more.

EXCERPT: Unprofessional

Read an excerpt from Unprofessional by JD Hawkins.

What happens when the internet's favorite playboy falls in love?

I have the best job in the world. Date beautiful women and write about it. 

But I want to take it to the next level: instead of writing about my experiences make it into an online reality show. 

But here is the catch. My boss wants me to share the show with a woman co-host. And he wants that woman to be my best friend and co-worker, Margo. 

I’ll date beautiful women and she’ll date hot men. Sounds fair enough.

So now I have to watch her fake date hot men. I used to love going home with a different woman every night, but suddenly this isn’t as fun. Seeing Margo with anyone else is driving me crazy. 

And the more time I spend with her working on the show, the less I want to keep our relationship in the friends’ zone. And the harder it is to stop myself from imagining her bent over the copier.

Things are about to get unprofessional.
