New Release & Reviews – Prince of My Panties, Lili Valente

January 29, 2021 By

Prince Jeffrey is a bossy, smug, overprotective grouch and the last man I want anywhere near my V-Card. 
Would I like to know what all the sexy times fuss is about? Heck yes.
 Do I want to lose my virginity to a prince out to ruin my plans? Or risk breaking the heart of a man I’ll have to leave behind? Hell. No. 


I’m already living on borrowed time. If the firstborn curse on my family is real, I only have six months to ensure my twin sister lives happily ever after. But Jeffrey wants to slam the brakes on my sister’s romance with his brother and force me to stay in bed until I recover from a touch of pneumonia.



But I don’t have time to stay in bed! And I certainly don’t have time to fall madly in love with this man who holds me like I’m something precious, kisses me until my bones melt, and promises to protect me at all costs.


But he can’t protect me from Fate. Can he?


Or is Jeffrey Von Bergen keeping secrets too?
Secrets that might change…everything.


Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Prince of my Panties is the second book in Lili Valente’s Royal Package series. You can read it as standalone but I recommend reading Royal Package since they tie together by siblings plus so it’s so fun! If you did read it then you have met Elizabeth and Jeffrey and had a little glimpse into their story.

 

It all started in a library. Romantic, right? Princess Elizabeth knew then that Jeffrey had a different side to him. He wasn’t an always grouchy sixteen year old prince, he was so much more. That night left a lasting impression on the princess and now it was time to see if there was more…

 

Elizabeth is the oldest of triples and believes she is the weakest. The meek one. The rut. The one with a stutter. The one locked up in her tower. She wants what is best for her family and finishing her collection in a cottage is the country will get her there. That was until he found her. Princess Jeffrey Von Bergen. He made her feel. Feel alive. Safe. He was messing up her plans but she also needed him. He pushed her. Pushed her to get answers. Pushed her to see herself. To see her as he sees her. A woman to be adored even if he isn’t the prince she was is supposed to marry.

 

These two. They are soooo much fun! Their banter is adorable and flirty. Their connection is undeniable. They both have different sides to them that nobody else brings to light. They just click and it’s a complicated and beautiful. I love Lizzy, I get her. She is real and raw. And Jeffrey…yum! He really is a sweetheart with an  a bit of alpha mixed in. The grouchy Viking General. Lol.

 

Overall…is a magical tale full of twists, love, friendship, family, and lingerie. I loved it! It’s unique, beautiful, and fun with a twist of suspense. I can’t wait for the next book!!

 

Quotes:

 

“Yes, lots of lime,” I say with a groan. “Lime makes it so good. Drench it, Jeffrey. Squeeze out every last drop.”

He turns, narrowing his eyes on mine. “Are you doing this on purpose?”

“Doing what?” I ask, his gaze making my throat feel tight.

“Talking dirty to my curry.”

“Oh. What? No.” I laugh, my cheeks heating as the eye contact between us gets next-level intense. “That didn’t sound dirty.”

 

“Oh no, sweet Lizzy. We’re not even close to that part yet. I told you. I’m going to devour you.”

 

“No offense, but who does he think he is? The King of France?”

I giggle. “No, he’s second in line. And not in France.”

The woman’s brows shoot up. “Seriously?”

“Seriously,” I say, my tongue thick and sticky in my mouth.

5 out of 5 stars

Price of My Panties is the second book in the Royal Package series by Lili Valente. I love Lili and I love royal stories so this was just perfect. I actually think I liked this one more than the last one! If you read Royal Package then you already know a little bit about Jeffrey and Lizzie. But their story started years ago. They had an instant connection when they were younger and Lizzie always felt safe with him. Now he’s taking care of her when she’s sick and he’s not a young kid anymore. He’s all grown up and sexy and sweet. They both have responsibilities to their families, but when it’s just the two of them, they seem to relax and just be themselves. But something is holding Lizzie back and Jeffrey is determined to help her get past it and show her they have a future. Together. I loved everything about this story! The mystery, the fate, the story, the characters! Jeffrey was so…everything! I loved that he could always tell Lizzie from her sisters. There was always something more between them. Overall I smiled, swooned and laughed! Looking forward to the next book!

The Stud Next Door

By Kendall Ryan

 

 

About the Book

Life threw me a curveball. An adorable eight-pound, four-ounce curveball with her mother’s eyes and my dark hair. I’d like to think my single-dad game is strong, but honestly? I’ve been struggling a little.

 

When a beautiful young woman moves in next door and offers to give me a hand, I jump at the chance to hire her as a nanny. Jessa is amazing with my daughter. She’s also patient, kind, and way too pretty.

 

The number one rule of hiring a nanny? Don’t bed the nanny.

 

It’s a rule I intend to keep.

 

But as the days pass, I begin to realize how much my life is missing. Companionship. Romance. Intimacy. When I discover my heart has space for one more female, it’s a lost cause, another curveball. The hot-as-hell nanny is leaving soon for a mission trip to Central America. No sense in letting myself fantasize about Jessa being a permanent part of my life.

 

The closer we get, the more difficult it becomes to keep my feelings in check, because my heart won’t listen. And neither will my libido.

 

Well, you know what they say. Rules are meant to be broken . . .

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

The Stud Next Door is the third book in the Frisky Business series by Kendall Ryan. You can read each book in the series as standalone but I do recommend reading the series since they are all connected by friends/business owners of a sex toy store. At the end of My Brother’s Roommate we got a tease about Connor’s story. A single dad/nanny romance! Love me a single dad and Connor is definitely a yummy one.

 

Connor was a different man a year ago. He worked and he played. Hard. Then he found out he was going to be a dad from a friends with benefits. Now, that baby is two months old, and he needs to find a nanny like yesterday. He didn’t know what he was looking for but when a new neighbor moved into his neighbor’s above ground apartment held Marley, he found it. She was a baby whisperer and she was happy to accept the job. The problem? He was attracted to her. He knew he had to stay professional. He was not about to bed the nanny and ruin this. Easy, right?

 

Haha!!

 

Jessa couldn’t believe a job just fell into her lap. She had never been a nanny but she was the oldest of six so it wasn’t her first rodeo. Plus, there was him. Connor was not only hot but he was adorable holding his baby girl, sweet, and off-limits. She wanted him but had to stay professional. She was only in town for two months then gone for six. She couldn’t fall. It wouldn’t be good for her heart. It wouldn’t be good for Connor or for Marley. But then…

 

Nope. That’s it.

 

This was a fun, sexy, and sweet story. I am loving the partners of Frisky Business and I can’t wait for the next one. Caleb is going to fall to his knees.

 

Quotes:

 

It’s hard not to swoon at the sound of his voice, warm and smooth like a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting on top of a freshly baked brownie.

 

“Well, this room is claimed.”

“What about me?” Connor grumbles. “Do you have a pullout for me?”

“We all know you don’t pull out,” Caleb says with a playful look, and everyone dissolves into laughter.

“Ha-ha, fuckers,” Connor mutters, frowning, and I suppress a laugh.

 

“My engine’s been revving since you decided to talk dirty on the deck just out of earshot of our friends. But yeah, it’s definitely heated.”

5 out of 5 stars

The Stud Next Door is the third book in the Frisky Business series by Kendall Ryan. I’m loving this series and the sexy friends who own a business together. You can read them all as standalones, but if you have read them all, this is Conner’s story. He just recently found out he was a father. Now he’s a single working dad in need of some help. When a beautiful woman moves in next door and just happens to be a baby whisperer, Conner hires her immediately. Things are going great until he realizes he’s attracted to her. More than just physically. He hasn’t thought about a woman this much in well, forever. But he can’t get involved with the nanny? Right? Once Conner and Jessa realize they can actually be adults and date and take care of his daughter, it’s on! I loved this story. It’s cute, funny, sexy and low angst. Just what I needed in my life right now. I love all of these characters and I’m looking forward to next one already!

Review Tour – The Invitation, Vi Keeland

January 22, 2021 By

 

Title: The Invitation
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 18, 2021

 

BLURB

 

The first time I met Hudson Rothschild was at a wedding. I’d received an unexpected invitation to one of the swankiest venues in the city.

 

Hudson was a groomsman and quite possibly the most gorgeous man I’d ever laid eyes on. He asked me to dance, and our chemistry was off the charts.
I knew it wasn’t a good idea to get involved with him, considering the wedding I was at. But our connection was intense, and I was having a great time.
Though the fun came to a screeching halt when Hudson figured out I wasn’t who I’d said I was. You see, that unexpected invitation I received? Well, it hadn’t actually been addressed to me—it was sent to my ex-roommate who’d bounced a check for two months’ rent and moved out in the middle of the night. I figured she owed me an expensive night out, but I guess, technically, I was crashing the wedding.
Once caught, I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. As I bolted for the door, I might’ve plucked a few bottles of expensive champagne off the tables I passed, all while the gorgeous, angry groomsman was hot on my tail.
Outside, I jumped into a taxi. My heart ricocheted against my ribs as we drove down the block—but at least I’d escaped unscathed.
Or so I thought.
Until I realized I’d left my cell phone behind at the table.
Take one guess who found it?
This is the crazy story of how Hudson Rothschild and I met. But trust me, it’s only the tip of the iceberg.

The Invitation is Vi Keeland’s newest epic standalone. This is a hard review to write since I don’t want to spoil anything! Nothing. Nada. If you follow my reviews then you know I don’t read the synopsis until after I read the book. I need to know what I can and can not reveal. Ok, here I go…

 

Stella has always wanted to attend an event at the New York Public Library. Her wish had come true when she read the most exquisite wedding invitation. Only it wasn’t addressed to her but her ex-roommate who screwed her over. After a night of drinking with her best friend Fisher they decided she deserved to go in Evelyn’s place. She was now a wedding crasher. A nervous one at that. The. She saw him. The most handsome man she had ever seen. A groomsmen she couldn’t stop looking at. A man who asks her to dance. A man who discovered she was not supposed to be there. A man she thought she would never see again. That was until she needed her phone back…

 

Omg!! I can say so much more about this book!! I can say that I love Stella and Hudson. Their banter. Their connection. Their story. It is everything. I loved it all. It’s full of swoon, twists, heat, love, food, and friendship. It’s definitely one of my favorite Vi books. Ever. 

 

Quotes: 

 

“I didn’t think you were going to collect your glass slipper, Cinderella.”

 

Today her hair was up, pinned into some sort of a twist in the back, and she wore those thick, dark-rimmed glasses. I had the strongest urge to push her up against a stack of books, rip her hair down, and toss her glasses over my shoulder. 

Mature, Rothschild. Very mature thoughts. 

Not to mention professional, too.

 

“You’re not going to have another?” 

Hudson held up a hand. “I’m driving.” 

I hiccupped. “And I’m tipsy. Nice to meet you, driving.” 

He chuckled. “You’re cute when you’re drunk.” 

I shook my head. “I’m not drunk. I’m tipsy.” 

“And the difference is?” 

“Tipsy, I’m still in control.”

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

The Invitation is Vi Keeland’s new epic romance. This book is everything! It starts with Stella crashing a wedding where she meets Hudson. They have an instant connection. Sparks flying everywhere. But he figures out she isn’t who she says she is. She runs from the wedding only to forget her phone, which she can’t afford to replace. What are the chances Hudson is the one who found it? 100%. Stella needs her phone back and Hudson hasn’t forgotten her deceit. He also hasn’t been able to stop thinking about her. She’s not just gorgeous, there’s so much more to her. What seem like weird coincidences are just fate’s way of bringing two soul mates together. A series of events bring Stella and Hudson face to face. It’s up to them what to do with it. Hudson is clear what he wants, but Stella is wary because of her past. It’s hard to trust someone but deep down she knows what she wants. Hudson. She fights it but he’s not giving up on her. She just has to realize on her own to take the leap. I’m actually having a hard time putting my thoughts and feelings into words! This story is what romances are made of! The slow burn, fate, destiny, friendship, lust and love. I felt so much for Stella and Hudson. They made me laugh, swoon, cry, laugh some more and fan myself. I loved that Hudson was all in. He knew what he wanted and he was patient while she figured it out. Stella is smart and funny and strong. I have a total girl crush on her! I could feel their chemistry and I couldn’t stop turning the pages! I finished in a few hours and didn’t want it to end. It’s definitely on my list of my favorites of the year and is one of my favorites from Vi!

Release Day & Review – Stealing Home, Carrie Aarons

January 22, 2021 By

 

 

 

Walker Callahan has loved from afar for as long as he can remember.

The golden boy of the Callahan baseball dynasty, he’s the only player to ever secure a top spot on a roster controlled by his own flesh and blood. The pressure, duty and plans laid out for him since birth loom large, causing things like love and a family to fall by the wayside.

Or maybe that’s because the woman he loves is already married with children.

When they met, she was already promised to someone else. For over six years, he resigned himself to being her friend. Until one night, when her marriage and the ugly secrets it keeps unravels for the world to see. She’s burned, scared and needs someone who will put her needs above everything else.

Can Walker risk his own future and show her how to trust again? Or will the feelings he’s kept hidden for years throw him out of the game before he can even attempt to play?

Hannah Giraldi never wants to fall in love again.

All it brings is pain, misery and her life falling to shambles. After a very public scandal, her abusive husband takes everything, leaving her to raise two daughters on nothing but charity from others, a hope, and a prayer.

New to the job market, single motherhood, and with two court cases on her plate, the last thing she needs are the butterflies that Walker ignites in her stomach every time he comes around. But with his soothing words, supportive shoulder to lean on, and undeniable gorgeousness, he’s pretty hard to ignore.

Just when it feels like she might be standing on her own two feet, the world comes crumbling down around her. And the man she’s finally allowed into her heart abandons her, once again leaving her to pick up the pieces.

Is there a way to heal all of the broken parts, or will Hannah go down swinging while attempting one more shot at a happily ever after?

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Stealing Home is the second book in the Callahan Family series. Each can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading Warning Track since it will give you a better look into the family. It is also where I started to fall for Walker, and wanted to hug Hannah and punch her husband in the junk.

 

Six years ago Walker watched the woman he loved walk down the aisle and towards his teammate, Shane. She was always Shane’s but he felt something for Hannah from the moment he met her. That connection only got stronger and stronger through the years from afar. They chatted at parties but never in a flirty way. He knew she didn’t belong to him but to an asshole. He didn’t get it but they had a family together. What he didn’t expect was what happened that night outside of the stadium. The night that changed everything…

 

Six years ago Hannah married a man she loved. Five years ago he started to show his true colors. He was an abuser. She stayed for her kids. She stayed because she thought she was weak. Now, she was done. She had to be strong for herself and for her kids. She couldn’t go back. It was time to start over but first she had to go through more hell. And by her side was Colleen the owner of the baseball team Shane used to play for. She also found safety with Walker. A man who was so sweet and was there for her one of her worst days. She saw and felt something between them but it was too fast to give her heat to another man. Could she even trust another man after what Shane had put her through? She also didn’t want a knight in shiny armor. She had to do this on her own.

 

Wow. I think Carrie did an amazing job at writing such a hard subject. I knew this one wasn’t going to be all hearts and rainbows. It made it more raw. Hannah is a badass woman and mother. Walker is a hot sweetheart. I loved them along with the littles. They are adorable and deserve happiness. All of them. I am excited for the next Callahan to find his!

 

Quotes:

 

Hannah doesn’t lean in, but she doesn’t back away. Coaxing, ever so slowly, I kiss her with the tenderness of a thousand feathers.

 

“Walker … you don’t want to date me.” She leans her head back against the seat, sighing as she looks at me.

“You have no idea how false that statement is. I’ve been waiting six years for a date with you.” My voice is quiet, but deadly serious.

 

“I know I’m not just seeing you, Hannah. Your girls are your world. I want to be a part of that, too. I’m not shy in telling you that I want every part of you, especially the part where you’re this fantastic, strong mother.”

Release Day Blitz & Review – Not My Match, Ilsa Madden-Mills

January 19, 2021 By

“Rife with uproarious moments and banter that sings, this scorching contemporary will captivate Madden-Mills’s fans.” —Publishers Weekly

Not My Match, an all-new slow burn friends-to-lovers sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills is available now!

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills delivers a smart and sexy romance about a professional football hottie and the girl he’s sworn to never touch.

Homeless and heartbreakingly innocent, Giselle Riley walks into my penthouse and chaos follows. I shouldn’t have invited the girl genius to live with me, but it’s clear she needs my help—not only for a place to lay her pretty blonde head but in finding real love, which she’s not going to get with the crazy men she picks up online. Too bad she’s a twenty-four-year-old virgin and I’m a bad boy wide receiver. She’s off limits for a hardcore player like me—and we’re just friends. Instead, I’m her matchmaking service, no matter how jealous it makes me when I tag along on her dates. I can keep my self-control. Right? No way will I give in to everything inside me that dreams of a girl like her in my world. I may be the best wide receiver in the country, but how could I hold on to a girl like her?

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Not My Match is the second book in the The Game Changers series by Ilsa Madden-Mills. It can be read as standalone but I recommend reading Not My Romeo since it’s amazing and where you first meet Giselle, Elena’s sister and Devon, Jack’s teammate. This is their story…   Giselle was lost months ago. She picks up the pieces and now is ready to kick ass. She is having fun, making new friends, writing a book, and finishing school. She also wants to get rid of her V-card very soon. She wasn’t saving herself for someone special, she was just cursed and wants it gone so she can fully move-on. She was ready, random hook-up was fine with her but not with Devon. Nope. He wanted to find the perfect match for her to share that with. Not just some asshole at a bar. Someone who deserved her. He wished it were him but she was too good for him. Smart, sexy, and sweet. A relationship kind of girl. He wasn’t an ass or anything but he got bored easily. He also knew she was the one to make him fall and he didn’t want another broken heart. She wouldn’t be a woman to walk away from him.   It was his mission to not touch her but to find someone worthy of her. It was hard to follow the rules living apart but now after fate stepped in it was nearly impossible since she was now living with him. Yeah, very hard indeed. Will he find her perfect match?   I absolutely loved them. Giselle, of course wasn’t a favorite in her sister’s story but we didn’t really get to know her till the end. Now? I love her! She is funny, genius-level smart, sweet, and caring. Devon is so much fun, I liked him as Jack’s friend/teammate and fell hard for him in this book. He is charming, funny, and sweet with an alpha side and has other sides I didn’t see coming. Loved that. Together, their banter is fun and flirty, their connection is sweet and sexy. I laughed. I cried. I swooned. I can’t wait to see who is up next to fall. I think I know but we shall see.   Quotes:   “Get that club from the Hummer. Shit is about to get real.” I do as she says, swinging the club as I walk back to her, wondering what the hell she’s going to do. “Here, hold my beer.” “Said every redneck before they wake up in the hospital.”   I don’t get close to a lot of people, and with him, there’s a beautiful connection I’m afraid of destroying.   “That’s barely a bikini!” Aiden says from behind me. “Shut up, Alabama,” Devon growls. “We were going swimming.” “You don’t have a pool!” “I’m going to build one!” Devon replies.

The Stud Next Door is the third book in the Frisky Business series by Kendall Ryan. You can read each book in the series as standalone but I do recommend reading the series since they are all connected by friends/business owners of a sex toy store. At the end of My Brother’s Roommate we got a tease about Connor’s story. A single dad/nanny romance! Love me a single dad and Connor is definitely a yummy one.

 

Connor was a different man a year ago. He worked and he played. Hard. Then he found out he was going to be a dad from a friends with benefits. Now, that baby is two months old, and he needs to find a nanny like yesterday. He didn’t know what he was looking for but when a new neighbor moved into his neighbor’s above ground apartment held Marley, he found it. She was a baby whisperer and she was happy to accept the job. The problem? He was attracted to her. He knew he had to stay professional. He was not about to bed the nanny and ruin this. Easy, right?

 

Haha!!

 

Jessa couldn’t believe a job just fell into her lap. She had never been a nanny but she was the oldest of six so it wasn’t her first rodeo. Plus, there was him. Connor was not only hot but he was adorable holding his baby girl, sweet, and off-limits. She wanted him but had to stay professional. She was only in town for two months then gone for six. She couldn’t fall. It wouldn’t be good for her heart. It wouldn’t be good for Connor or for Marley. But then…

 

Nope. That’s it.

 

This was a fun, sexy, and sweet story. I am loving the partners of Frisky Business and I can’t wait for the next one. Caleb is going to fall to his knees.

 

Quotes:

 

It’s hard not to swoon at the sound of his voice, warm and smooth like a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting on top of a freshly baked brownie.

 

“Well, this room is claimed.”

“What about me?” Connor grumbles. “Do you have a pullout for me?”

“We all know you don’t pull out,” Caleb says with a playful look, and everyone dissolves into laughter.

“Ha-ha, fuckers,” Connor mutters, frowning, and I suppress a laugh.

 

“My engine’s been revving since you decided to talk dirty on the deck just out of earshot of our friends. But yeah, it’s definitely heated.”

Release Day Blitz – The Invitation, Vi Keeland

January 18, 2021 By

 

Title: The Invitation
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 18, 2021

 

BLURB

 

The first time I met Hudson Rothschild was at a wedding. I’d received an unexpected invitation to one of the swankiest venues in the city. 

 

Hudson was a groomsman and quite possibly the most gorgeous man I’d ever laid eyes on. He asked me to dance, and our chemistry was off the charts. 
I knew it wasn’t a good idea to get involved with him, considering the wedding I was at. But our connection was intense, and I was having a great time. 
Though the fun came to a screeching halt when Hudson figured out I wasn’t who I’d said I was. You see, that unexpected invitation I received? Well, it hadn’t actually been addressed to me—it was sent to my ex-roommate who’d bounced a check for two months’ rent and moved out in the middle of the night. I figured she owed me an expensive night out, but I guess, technically, I was crashing the wedding. 
Once caught, I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. As I bolted for the door, I might’ve plucked a few bottles of expensive champagne off the tables I passed, all while the gorgeous, angry groomsman was hot on my tail. 
Outside, I jumped into a taxi. My heart ricocheted against my ribs as we drove down the block—but at least I’d escaped unscathed. 
Or so I thought. 
Until I realized I’d left my cell phone behind at the table. 
Take one guess who found it? 
This is the crazy story of how Hudson Rothschild and I met. But trust me, it’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

How to Get Lucky is a new standalone romance written by Lauren Blakely and Joe Arden. It’s a laugh out loud, sizzling boss’s sister romance that I absolutely adored! I love when authors collaborate and I was excited to see how my favorite author and one of my favorite narrators wrote a book together! Let me just say this: I loved it!  When they meet, Teddy doesn’t know she’s his boss’s sister. They have an instant connection and they bond over dogs, sushi, and music. Teddy is trying to get his new DJ business off the ground while London is working on choreography to further her career. They vow to be just friends, but the flirting is too tempting. And so is the challenge London hits Teddy with. He’s just the man for the job. The perfect man. But as they get closer and closer to the line of friendship and much more, they know they are breaking the rules. Should they end it or just come clean? Oh man! These two were so perfect together! Teddy’s love for music and London’s love for dance and their love for their dogs! I loved the texts between London and her friends and Teddy’s friends from the club. I want to be a part of their friendships! I laughed so much, I swooned, had to fan myself and instantly fell in love with Teddy and London.

Five-star reviews are up there with blow jobs and tacos. Not always in that order, of course. I’ve had some pretty righteous tacos.

What do I think?

I think I might come as I am.

I reply.

 

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

How to Get Lucky is a new standalone by the ever-talented, Lauren Blakely and narrator, Joe Arden! Fun, right? Joe has been narrating Lauren’s books for years and now they have written one together. And it’s so good!! I laughed so hard. Kara says I have a twelve year old hidden away inside me. 🤣

Teddy is a deejay for a male revue show but that is not his endgame. He wants get his side-hustle up and running so he can become a full-time DJ for events such as weddings, dances, corporate, and everything fun. The last year has been all about starting over, and going full-speed ahead. No distractions. No rule-breaking. Then, he sees her. A beautiful woman doing air-guitar at the bar with two dudes. They only exchange a few words but she never left his mind that night. He didn’t think he would ever see her again until fate steps in. Thank God for dogs since they are who brings them together the next day which turns into a date that night. It was everything. She was amazing. Then the bomb drops. She is also working for the club, and even worse…she was his boss’s little sister. Not only one strike but two! His luck has run out or has it?

London is a dance choreographer Who has been going through a drought. She hasn’t had luck in the love department and things were looking up when she met Teddy, a good guy. An adorable guy. A guy who makes her laugh and swoon at the same time. He is also the perfect guy for a new project. She has the moves but she needs the music to go with it and Teddy is just the talent and man she needs. They need to keep it professional. No mixing business with pleasure. But, when a challenge arises, they are both up for it. It for all good guys. It’s science. And one, they are both happy to be part of the experiment. Over and over again.

Omfg! This book is hilarious. I laughed out loud so many times. It’s also so sweet, adorable, and sexy. Teddy and London just hit it off from the start but it’s complicated. It’s also just so easy. Their banter is so fun. Their chemistry is sizzling. Their dogs are the best. Teddy is adorable, witty, hilarious, and has awesome taste in music, pooches, and finding a woman for him. London is smart, sensual, and funny and has amazing taste in dogs, dance moves, ice cream, the 90s and of course finding a man for her. I am so hoping to see them again someday.

Quotes:

Note to self: find my passport when I get home because I want to spend some time in London.

This woman is full of contradictions and complexities, and I want to explore them.

“Okay, you make me laugh and you turn me on at the same time. Is that your special skill?”

“Why, yes, it is.”

“But the trouble is . . .”

“Barking pumpkin dog.”

“Nailed it,” she says a little sadly.

 

 

Blurb:
A sexy standalone romance written by #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely and Award-Winning Romance Narrator Joe Arden!

Every man knows there are lines you don’t cross. Like this one — don’t bang your boss’s little sister.

Too bad I didn’t know sexy, clever, irresistible London is related to the guy who signs my paychecks. Would have been helpful to have that intel before I took her out on that first date, before I kissed her on the beach, before I made plans to take her home that night.

But now I know and I’m going to be so damn disciplined. I’m a good guy, after all. And good guys don’t break the golden rules of the bro code. I’m going to follow the f&*k out of all the rules. I won’t break a single damn one.

Even when London asks me to help her with a work project. One that has us working late every night, all alone, in my tiny apartment.

One that tests every ounce of willpower I have.

One that is driving me out of my ever loving mind.

But I resist.

Until the night she issues a challenge I can’t refuse.
