Synopsis: From USA Today bestselling author Meghan March comes a sexy new duet with a hero you won't want to miss.
I’ve had my fair share of bad boys, but nothing prepared me for what it was like to be with a real good man. Logan Brantley changed everything. Somewhere along the way, what started as a fling became the best part of my life. He makes me want all the things I’ve never had, like forever and happily ever after, but nothing worth having comes easily.
Everyone is betting on us to fail, but I’m ready to fight for this real good love. Real Good Love is the conclusion of the Real Duet and should be read following Real Good Man.

Her past lives include slinging auto parts, selling lingerie, making custom jewelry, and practicing corporate law.

by Liberty Laine Release Date: January 16, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Erotic Cover Design: Aly Martinez Add to Goodreads Source: Author eARC received in exchange of honest review Synopsis: I’ve got ninety-nine problems and all of them begin and end with the Coletrain twins. Especially Millie Coletrain. I don’t know whether to kiss her or spank her. Either way, she’s mine. Warning: This is an erotic novella with laugh-out-loud ridiculousness, insta-love, a smart-mouthed heroine, and an over-the-top alpha bail bondsman.
When I started my reading challenge for 2017, I knew that this was the year that I was going to read as many new authors as possible. Liberty Laine is a new author on the block and let me tell you that their (because this book is written by a fantastic duo) first novella was a hit in my books! It was fun, sexy and entertaining!
I'm not a big fan of insta-love in books. With that being said, Jail House Rock is a novella so I expected the insta-love between the characters. What I liked about this book is that it's the perfect reading escape if you are stuck in a never-ending book hangover or if you are looking for a quick read. Millie and Jake have an entertaining and steamy relationship from the very beginning.
Millie dreams of a big music career and Jake, which is a Bounty Hunter, dreams of catching Millie and making her his. A case of mistaken identity lands Millie in Jake's hands. Who is she to complain? From the moment they meet their chemistry is undeniable. This novella is packed with heat and humor. I really enjoyed my reading escape with these awesome characters. This dynamic writing duo did a fantastic job with this novella and I'm looking forward to more stories by Liberty Laine.
I give, Jail House Rock, by Liberty Laine, 4 sexy, fun, over-the-top alpha meets sassy heroine stars!

White House, #2 by Katy Evans Release Date: January 2nd, 2017 Genres: Contemporary Romance
Add to Goodreads Source: Author via Blog Tour Host eARC received in exchange of honest review Synopsis: The sizzling second installment of the White House series, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans. We fell in love during the campaign. The stakes were high. Reputations could have been ruined. Scandal hovered over us like a cloud. Now the man I love is the President of the United States of America. And its not my vote he is after. He wants it all. My heart. My body. My soul. He wants me by his side. In the White House. Normalcy will be gone from my life, privacy forgotten. I am only twenty three. I just wanted to play a part in history. But it seems like history wasn't done with me. The part where I lost my heart to Matthew Hamilton? It was only the beginning…
The second installment of the White House Series, Commander in Chief, left me with a big smile on my face. Charlotte and Matt are two fascinating characters that I had the absolute pleasure of following and falling in love with. I’m a big fan of Katy Evans. Her writing style is always captivating and her characters unforgettable. This is without a doubt my favorite series from this author after the Real Series. Remy was my first book boyfriend so it will be very difficult for me to love any of Katy’s alphas the way I love Remy. Matt comes pretty close though. He’s swoony, romantic and intense! Charlotte and Matt have tried to stay away from each other. With Matt becoming the forty-sixth president of the United States, Charlotte wants him to concentrate on his big journey. Matt only wants one thing. To have Charlotte by his side. He is determined to do whatever it takes to fight for their love. Will Charlotte let go of her fears and give their love a chance? This was a great sequel to Mr. President, which is the first installment of the White House Series. You absolutely need to read Mr. President to follow Charlotte and Matt’s journey in Commander in Chief. I’m so proud of Charlotte. She grew so much on this journey. It was very difficult for her to let go and take a step forward with Matt. It was a big step for her to let go of her normal life and privacy. It was beautiful to see her fall even more in love with Matt. Their love is mesmerizing and their chemistry took my breath away! Matt’s determination to have her by his side was heart-melting. Each and every day that passed, he made it clear that she was his one and only. The woman he wants by his side. The only woman who holds the key to his heart. I loved all the details that were included in this story. It was a fascinating journey and it exceeded all of my expectations. Katy Evans always delivers a romantic reading escape that will leave you wanting more! I highly recommend this series!
I give, Commander in Chief, by Katy Evans, 4.5 charming, all-consuming, captivating, fight for the one you love stars!

Lucian Divine By: Renee Carlino Standalone Release Date: Jan. 9, 2017 Add to Goodreads Source: Author via Review Tour Host eARC received in exchange of honest review Book Summary:
“My guardian angel is a drunk.” Evelyn Casey's life is at a standstill. She's in her mid-twenties, struggling with the dating scene in San Francisco. Nothing seems to be working out, and she’s starting to think that she’ll live out her days in her crummy apartment with her overbearing roommate, Brooklyn. It's absurd, but sometimes Evey longs for a guardian angel to show up and save the day. And then he does. Seriously. His name is Lucian and he's a guardian angel, been on the job for two thousand years. His sudden presence in her life is both good—he's brilliant, witty, and warm—and bad—he's brilliant, witty, warm, and hot as ----. But as perfect as Lucian seems, he’s got problems of his own. He’s taken up drinking and he’s brazenly inserted himself into Evey’s life, going against the greatest cosmic law ever created. For Evey, the rules are simple: You are not allowed to hook up with your guardian angel. But sometimes fulfilling your destiny requires a leap of faith, a confrontation with God. Yes, God as in God.

Sinners of Saint, #1 by L.J. Shen Release Date: January 1st, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance Add to Goodreads Release Tour Hosted by: Enticing Journey Book Promotions Source: Author via Release Tour Host eARC received in exchange of honest review Synopsis: Emilia They say love and hate are the same feelings experienced under different circumstances, and it’s true. The man who comes to me in my dreams also haunts me in my nightmares. He is a brilliant lawyer. A skilled criminal. A beautiful liar. A bully and a savior, a monster and a lover. Ten years ago, he made me run away from the small town where we lived. Now, he came for me in New York, and he isn’t leaving until he takes me with him. Vicious She is a starving artist. Pretty and evasive like cherry blossom. Ten years ago, she barged into my life unannounced and turned everything upside down. She paid the price. Emilia LeBlanc is completely off-limits, my best friend’s ex-girlfriend. The woman who knows my darkest secret, and the daughter of the cheap Help we hired to take care of our estate. That should deter me from chasing her, but it doesn’t. So she hates me. Big fucking deal. She better get used to me.
“You’re pissing me off,” she said quietly, her eyes still searching my face. “And that’s turning me on,” I retorted, my voice flat. “So you might wanna tone down the hate glares if you don’t wanna find yourself being fucked on this desk with the blinds still open.” I was still staring at my screen, working on the merger deal I was eager to get signed before Christmas, but I could see from my peripheral that she had paled. I liked how—once again—I’d gotten under her skin. Quickly. “You’re disgusting,” she muttered, still staring at me—but not in a way that suggested she was appalled. I cracked my neck, opening my browser and checking the stocks on the screen, skimming through the greens and the reds. “That may well be, but I’m balls deep in your fucking head, Help, and there’s nothing you can do about it.” Her eyes glittered with rage, and fuck, I was so hard, and fuck, she was so beautiful. This was so on. I was going to fuck Dean’s ex-girlfriend, use her for my personal needs, and toss her away when I was done. And after choosing the wrong guy, there was no doubt in my mind, she deserved it too. “You just gave Floyd a lecture about the inter-office fraternization policy. No mixing business and pleasure.” She leaned forward. Her elbow touched my finger accidentally, and she jerked it away. I met her halfway, erasing the space between us across the desk. “Correction—guys like Floyd won’t give you pleasure. Men like me would. Besides, the man likes Arrow,” I drawled, as if this alone was a reason to fire him. To me, it was. “You know what your problem is, Vicious? You still haven’t decided if you hate me or like me. That’s why you act like this every time I’m around other men.” There wasn’t a trace of embarrassment in her voice. She owned up to this. What she didn’t know was that I knew exactly how I felt about her. I hated her, but was attracted to her. It was really that simple. “You know what I feel right now, Ms. LeBlanc? I feel like you need to pack a fucking bag and start making the necessary arrangements. You’re coming with me to California, whether you like it or not.”
What Others Are Saying about Vicious
“If you're looking for a book that's a little bit dark, a little bit twisted, with a character driven story that leaves you panting more than once, Vicious is it.” - 5 Obsessed Stars - Reader Review “Absolutely amazing book! You will never find another guy like Vicious and you will never find another book like this ever.”- Tongan Book Lover 5 Stars “Christ. Just Christ. The naughty bits are hot and steamy, the love story is unique for sure, and the writing is fucking epic because LJ Shen.” - Mells View 5 Stars
2017 is the year for me to discover authors that have been on my TBR list for a long time. L.J. Shen is one of those authors. I have heard fantastic things about her writing style and how captivating her stories are. After reading Vicious, it left me wanting more! I will without doubt make some time on my schedule to read her previous books. Ten years ago, Emilia LeBlanc ran away from home. Not because she wanted to, but because she was forced to leave her family and her home because of one man. Baron Spencer Jr. AKA Vicious. He was cruel, arrogant and he has not changed one bit. Vicious needs Emilia’s help to fight his own personal demons. A war he’s been preparing for and that he wants to win at any cost. As days go by, Emilia and Vicious grow closer together. Emilia is determined to protect her heart because she knows how badly it was broken years ago. Vicious is toxic and she knows she should stay away from him. Will she be able to resist him or will she play with fire and get burned again? Vicious was a roller coaster ride of emotions! Not only for the characters, but for me as well. Vicious was a very difficult character to follow. He was very mean to Emilia and my heart broke for her in those moments when he created a hurricane of emotions in her heart. With Vicious, what you see is what you get. The more I read, the more I got to know him more. Just the way Emilia saw him. She did not hold onto those feelings for nothing. She saw something in Vicious that nobody else could see. She was destined to be his. She is a wonderful heroine that I loved to follow. I really liked the chemistry between Emilia and Vicious. It was intense and passionate. You could feel their connection in each of the scenes that they shared together. This couple had many ups and downs before finding their HEA. All the supporting characters in this story are great! The writing style was fantastic and I’m extremely happy with my reading escape! I’m so glad that I finally got to read a book by L.J. Shen. I can’t wait to see what she will be working on next!
I give, Vicious, by L.J. Shen, 4.5 sexy, intense, you’re my pink and i’m your black stars!
