Synopsis:

He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult. 
Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me. 

That man is gone. 

In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city. He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman. 
The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin. 
It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help. 
I didn’t expect him to offer it easily. 

And he doesn’t. 

Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone. 
Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says. 
He's assessing every piece of me, to the point I've never felt so bare. 
I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me. Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself. 
Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.

Synopsis:

Today is officially the worst day of my life… 

I woke up five hours late after a reckless one-night stand with the sexiest, cockiest, and most arrogant man I’ve ever met. (And this asshole actually left a note: “I think you were lying to me about being “experienced” last night. You orgasmed three times, and that was before we made it to your bedroom. I also find it hard to believe you “usually wear silk or lingerie.” Your drawers are all full of cotton granny panties–The best man you’ve ever fucked…) 

My top two PR clients left me for my number one competitor, my roommate accidentally bleached my best suit, and my favorite coffee shop was shut down for “health concerns.” 

Still, none of those things dimmed my excitement for what was supposed to be the best four o’clock signing session of my career. I was on the verge of signing the highest paying client in my company’s history, taking on a so-called “impossible” job that no publicist had been able to handle. 

But at four o’clock, there was no athlete, television personality, or celebrity who showed up. Instead, that sexy, arrogant one-night stand stepped into my office with his familiar panty-wetting smirk and introduced himself as my new, cocky client…

Review:


My friends have NOTICED that I crave dark romance lately. They always try to find me new authors to follow and book recommendations that will give me chills. If there is one author that is on my dark romance auto-read list, it’s K. Webster. Her dark romance novels have captivated me from the moment I discovered her War & Peace Series. With this author, you never know what kind of twisted roller coaster ride of emotions your embarking on until the story and characters hold every bit of your attention. These characters never let you go! I always end up with a book hangover that lingers for days!!! NOTICE is K. Webster’s new dark romance release and it is WICKEDLY ADDICTIVE!! 

In NOTICE we follow Violet Simmons and Grayson Maxwell’s complicated and wickedly hot relationship. Violet has been working for Grayson Maxwell for six years. Her boss is a jerk. He never gives her or any other employee a word of encouragement or a simple THANK YOU. She works her butt off to make his company look good and she knows how to talk to his clients. Violet wants to quit her position and find a company that will NOTICE all the valuable work she does. When she walks into Gray’s office to give her resignation, the last thing she expected was for Gray to NOTICE her. Sometimes what you wish for is dangerous... 

Violet wanted to be NOTICED. She has all of Gray’s undivided attention now. As days go by, Violet’s opinion about Gray starts to change. How will she react when she finds out that he’s been keeping a close eye on her? Especially when she’s sleeping and he sneaks into her home to hide under her bed. Gray is obsessed with Violet and he will not stop following her every move until she belongs to him. 

NOTICE is one of the most fascinating books that I have ever read! I’m a big fan of K. Webster’s villains. They have a je-ne-sais-quoi that always gets me cheering for them. Gray was a different kind of villain. He was not what I expected at all. I have to admit that he actually made me swoon a couple of times with how protective he was of Violet. He’s fiercely possessive and irrevocably in love with Violet. This couple is extremely hot together and their chemistry was blazing hot! Oh.my.world. What happens under that bed? *Fans face* K. Webster always knows how to create fireworks between her characters. The dirty talk and sexual tension between Violet and Gray was crazy hot! 

This was an amazing reading escape! K. Webster always delivers a story that keeps me on the edge of my seat! Her characters are always unique and her storylines are like a breath of fresh air. Violet’s story was a difficult one to read. Her past is filled with dark memories. I loved how Gray protected her and how she changed from the woman she was all those years ago. If you are looking for a dark romance that has the heroine falling for her stalker, this is it! 

Rating:


I give, Notice, by K. Webster, 4.5 steamy, all-consuming, twisted stars!

Excerpt:

Holden dressed me that first day out of the box. He dressed me and left me in his bedroom on his bed. I sobbed until my body had no more liquid to expel. I curled into a tiny ball and willed everything not to be true. At some point, probably mid-day, he came in with a bucket, washcloth, and tray of food. He gently, tenderly almost, sat me up and fed me. Small bites. He murmured that things would be okay. That I would see. When the food was gone, he lifted my dress from my body. I stared at the wall unmoving. He dampened the washcloth and washed me head to toe. There was nothing sexual about it. It was simply cleaning the filth and stench from my skin. If I’m honest, I almost enjoyed it. Being clean is something we take for granted. He left me in his room after a swift kiss on the crown of my head until dinner. He brought in a tray and fed me again. Afterward, he brushed my hair free of all the knots and braided it. When he finished I laid back down and squeezed my eyes shut so tightly that the apples of my cheeks began to burn.


Review:

My ultimate reading goal for 2017 was to read as many books by new authors as possible. Since the beginning of the year, my goal is divided in two (Debut authors and TBR list authors) K. Larsen has been on my TBR list for some time now. I have heard amazing things about her books by my book sisters. Sometimes deciding on what book to read by an author you have never read before can be overwhelming. K. Larsen has written many books before The Tutor, which is her new release. I decided start my K. Larsen reading journey with The Tutor. I have been on a dark romance kind of mood lately so I knew that this new release was my book of choice. 

From the captivating blurb to the mesmerizing cover, The Tutor was a dark, intense unputdownable story that left me on the edge of my seat! I was trying to solve the intricate puzzle that was this story. I had many theories with this book. The author did a phenomenal job at keeping me guessing. I never knew what to expect next with this story and that made my reading journey even more exciting. I don’t want to give anything away by doing a recap of this story. I want every single reader that picks up this book to feel all the same emotions that I felt while reading this story. 

This is what I can tell you about this story without giving anything away. The blurb gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect from this story. Nora accepts a tutoring job in the middle of nowhere. She needs the money so she accepts the job. What she never expected was to be kept captive after her tutoring job was finished. What happens next leaves her with both physical and emotional scars. Love is not always hearts and flowers. Sometimes love is complicated, dark, twisted and unexpected. 

This story is written in multiple POV's. I have to admit that it was distracting at the beginning of the story, but I did end up enjoying reading all of these POV's once Nora revealed what happened to her. Nora is an intriguing character and her story is chill inducing. Each supporting character in this story plays an important role in Nora’s life. I absolutely loved my first K. Larsen book and it will not be my last. I’m really excited to read her previous work and I’m very intrigued about how things ended in The Tutor. If you are looking for a dark, twisted and captivating story, look no further! The Tutor is the next book you need to add on your TBR list! 

Rating:


I give, The Tutor, by K. Larsen, 4.5 intriguing, intense, twisted, page-turning stars!

About the Author:


You talk. I listen. You move. I watch. You don’t know I exist, but I learn from watching you. I absorb the minute details you emit. I use them. I write. I take the smallest sliver from you, about you and I piece it into a character. It takes so many little slivers to create a whole, complete being. I watch people. I hear words, individual words from many different conversations floating around. I stockpile them away. I rearrange them into to something else. Nothing goes to waste. There is a little of each one of you in each person I create. You are all of them and they are all of you. Good combined with bad. Kind mixed in with evil. All the little slivers compound on each other creating something bigger. That is how my writing works.

I am an avid reader, coffee drinker, and chocolate eater who loves writing. 

If you love suspense and romance and a good read you’ve come to the right spot! I may mess with your head a bit in the process. Enjoy! 

I have a weird addiction to goat cheese and chocolate martinis, not together though. 

I adore my dog. 

He is the most awesome snuggledoo in the history of dogs. 

Seriously. 

I hate dirty dishes. 

I like sarcasm and funny people. 

I should probably be running right now… because of the goat cheese….and stuff.

Synopsis:

When I found an eviction notice taped on my apartment door, I had two options: find a comfortable cardboard box to call home, or move in with Tucker Jameson. 

Seeing that cardboard makes me feel itchy, I chose the latter. Which shouldn't be that big of a deal since Tucker is one of my good friends. And because he's still pining after his ex-girlfriend and I'm trying to finish my nursing degree, there is nothing to worry about in the romance department, making my last semester an easy one to conquer. 

Boy, was I wrong. 

Rules are set, dinners are made, conversations are had, and a shirtless, swoony roommate walks around in nothing but a pair of black briefs, ruining me for every other man. 

Before I know it, I turn into a panting, lust-filled woman begging for Tucker to kiss me, touch me, and show me exactly what is hiding under those briefs. 

But with great orgasms, comes great consequences. 

Tucker might be my friend and roommate but he’s also my best friend's ex-boyfriend, making him completely off-limits. At least that's what my brain is telling me, my heart is speaking an entirely different language.

Excerpt:


“Morning,” Tucker’s deep voice rattles off the cabinets. It’s his morning voice, deeper, throatier—if that makes sense—and I hate to admit it, because he’s just my friend, but sexier. 

Once my pupils adjust to the light, I take Tucker in. He’s standing in front of the stove, rubber spatula in hand, wearing a white long-sleeve Henley shirt, the top two buttons undone, a pair of worn jeans with a few paint stains on them, and tan work boots. Sweet Jesus, he makes construction look good. Strap a tool belt around his waist and stick him in front of a camera for the benefit of all womankind. 

“Morning,” I say in reply, using the counter to help hold up my tired body. “You’re up early. What time do you have to go into work?” 

“Around seven thirty. I like to get an early start before the boys come in.” He looks me up and down, a small smile at the corner of his lips. “You look good.” He motions around his head with his hand. “I really like what you did with your hair.” 

I turn toward the window in the kitchen and check out my reflection. Sure enough, my long brown hair looks like a lion’s mane poofed out and framing my face with an abundance of volume. Beautiful. 

There is no use in taming it, so I leave my hair as is and turn back toward Tucker. “Not many people can get this kind of height while sleeping.” I pretend to fluff my hair. 

“Impressive.” He chuckles and then points to the coffee maker with the spatula. “Coffee is done, mugs are above in the cabinet. Grab me a cup, will ya? Eggs will be done shortly, bacon is warming in the oven.” 

I do as directed, thinking it’s kind of cute how he’s including me in on his little morning breakfast. “I didn’t even know you had eggs. I was expecting to hit up Dunkin’ Donuts or Tim Horton’s this morning.” 

He turns off the stove and reaches for two plates from the dish rack. “I went to Walmart this morning. Picked up a few things.” 

“This morning?” I pour two cups of coffee and turn toward him. “What time did you wake up?” 

“Four thirty,” he answers casually. “Got a quick run in, did some weights, took a shower and then went to Walmart.” He fills our plates with bacon and eggs and then nods toward the dining room, plates and silverware in hand. “I have a surprise.” 

I follow him to the dining room where he flips on the light and reveals a card table fold-out dining set. 

“You got a table.” I chuckle, loving that it’s a fold-out card table with matching chairs. Anything is better than the floor. 

“And placemats,” he adds, as he lifts two plastic placemats from one of the chairs. “The options were bleak so I went with dinosaurs for me and Trolls for you. Given the look of your morning hair, Trolls was the right choice.” Clever bastard. He sets them on the table and then puts our plates on top of them. 

God, it’s too freaking cute. Chuckling, I take a seat and hand him his coffee. “Look at you getting all domestic. I never thought you would be a placemat kind of man, I stand corrected.” 

He rests a napkin on his legs, which are spread drastically, almost the length of the table and leans over to fork some eggs into his mouth. “Didn’t want our food to damage the plastic of this high-class table.” I love the humor in his voice, it reminds me of all the good times we had, before the end of his relationship with Sadie. 

“Smart man, you want this table to last.” 

“Of course, you don’t see fine furniture like this in houses anymore. Everything has to be so sturdy. What ever happened to rickety furniture and living through a meal with the threat of your food possibly kissing the floor at any point in time?” 

“The horror,” I joke. 

He looks up at me. Some of his hair is still wet from his shower. Pointing his fork at me he says, “Are you ready to be schooled?” 

“Schooled on what?” I take a bite of bacon and my stomach jumps in excitement for finally rewarding it for waking up early. All right, I will admit it, getting out of bed was a smart idea. 

“It’s Monday, babe. DJ Hot Cock has his song picked and ready to show you what real music is.” 

“When was my music taste ever questioned? I like good music.” 

“We’ll see.” He reaches into his pocket and pulls out his phone. I watch as he flips through it until he lands on the song he wants to introduce me to. He presses play and sets his phone on the table. The light pickings of a guitar fill the small dining room. I don’t recognize the song, but I like the sound of it so far. 

Just as I’m settling in to the sweet pickings of a guitar, the distinct voice of Zac Brown chimes in. I’ve known Tucker for loving EMO growing up, so his choice in a country song is very surprising to me, but when I look up at him, pure hometown country boy sitting across from me, it makes perfect sense. 

And then the lyrics hit me. My Old Man. Zac sings about his father, hoping he’s proud of the man he’s become. I’m transported back to a dreary day in Whitney Point, where we grew up, when Sadie called me one Saturday morning. I was getting ready for the day. We were in middle school. Tucker’s dad was killed by a head-on collision, the dad Tucker just reconnected with, the dad Tucker had plans on moving in with to get away from his neglectful mom. Those next few days—and weeks—were a whirlwind of sorrow. Attending his funeral, my first ever funeral, seeing the look of devastation on Tucker’s face, wondering what he might be feeling, trying to channel his hurt, it was so much to take on as a teenager. 

Glancing up, I take in Tucker’s expression. He’s lost in the music, in the words, just like me. When the song ends, I lean over and place my hand on his, our eyes meet and there is an unspoken understanding between us. I don’t have to say anything about his dad, about the tragedy we went through so many years ago together as friends. It’s all said between this silent exchange. 


Review:


Meghan Quinn is an author I can turn to when I want an unforgettable and super romantic reading escape. I have loved every single title she has published since I discovered her amazing writing style and her captivating stories. My Best Friend’s Ex can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend to read Co-Wrecker before if you want to understand a bit of what happened to another character that is kind of intertwined in this story. And, how can you seriously skip meeting Andrew AKA The Hot Nerd?!?! 

My Best Friend’s Ex is the story of Emma and Tucker. An eviction notice is the last news Emma was expecting to receive. She needs to find a place to live ASAP and that can be problematic. Enter Tucker Jameson. He has the solution to Emma`s dilemma and she accepts his proposal. Moving in with Tucker should be a fun time. They share a great friendship and she’s excited that she can finally focus on her nursing degree instead of breaking her head to find a place where to live. As days go by, Emma and Tucker share intense moments that bring them closer. Emma never expected to fall in love with her best friend’s ex, but sometimes you need to listen to your heart. Even if it makes things more complicated. 

Emma and Tucker were amazing characters to follow! I loved their intense and passionate moments together and the ones that they shared with their friends. The sexual tension between these two was blazing hot! Be prepared to meet a sweet and sexy dirty talker! Emma was such a fun heroine. I love how she brings sunshine to everybody’s life. She was like a breath of fresh air in Tucker’s life in one of his darkest moments. I loved how their friendship bloomed to love. It was heart-melting reading about their love story. 

Meghan Quinn not only writes phenomenal main characters, but her supporting cast of characters is always stellar. With every new world that she creates, I feel like I am one of the characters that belongs in the story. Every reading escape makes my heart happy and always leaves me with a huge smile on my face. 

Rating:


I give, My Best Friend’s Ex, by Meghan Quinn, 4.5 sexy, fun, romantic, follow your heart stars!

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations.
