Synopsis:

Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him?? 

Sexy. As. Hell. 

And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them. For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really. 

To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after. 

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely. 

But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go. 


*** 

Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts. 

Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family. 

But there’s only one woman he wants. 

For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar. 

He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her. 

But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits. 

Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

GR's Summary:

Ruby Scott is months behind on rent and can’t seem to land a steady job. She has one chance to turn things around with a big audition. But instead of getting her big break, she gets sick as a dog and completely bombs it in the most humiliating fashion. All thanks to a mysterious, gorgeous guy who kissed—and then coughed on—her at a party the night before. 

Luckily, her best friend might have found the perfect opportunity; a job staying at the lavish penthouse apartment of hotel magnate Bancroft Mills while he’s out of town, taking care of his exotic pets. But when the newly-evicted Ruby arrives to meet her new employer, it turns out Bane is the same guy who got her sick. 

Seeing his role in Ruby’s dilemma, Bane offers her a permanent job as his live-in pet sitter until she can get back on her feet. Filled with hilariously awkward encounters and enough sexual tension to heat a New York City block, Shacking Up, from NYT and USA Today bestselling author Helena Hunting, is sure to keep you laughing and swooning all night long.


My Thoughts:

Shacking Up, a standalone novel by Helena Hunting, was steamy and hilarious!  I appreciate Ms. Hunting's use of innuendo, and witty ability when it comes to word play.  She has a fun and bawdy sense of humor, and I would recommend her stories to fans of Alice Clayton and Emma Chase.  She has a similar story telling style.

In Shacking Up, main character, Ruby Scott is having a difficult time.  She comes from a wealthy family.  Her father owns a successful and lucrative pharmaceutical company, and wants her to work for him, alongside her siblings.  However, Ruby has dreams of singing, dancing, and acting on broadway.  She has tirelessly auditioned, but is not having much luck in landing a role, even in an off-broadway production.

Rudy wants to prove to her father that she can make it on her own.  However, she is falling behind on all of her bills, and needs to land a part quickly.  The night before an important audition, Ruby attends her best friend, Amalie's engagement party; and get's kissed by a gorgeous stranger that is sick with the flu.  This costs Ruby the audition.  She also has no place to live now, because her father has stopped contributing to her rent in a power play, to get her to come home and work for his company.

However, Amalie, has a plan to help out Ruby.  She sets up an introduction with her fiancĂ©'s cousin, Bancroft, "Bane" Mills, who needs a pet-sitter, while he goes away for an extended business trip.  Ruby is shocked when she recognizes Bane as the handsome stranger who kissed her and cost her an audition.  Feeling guilty for his part in Ruby's current circumstance, Bane compensates Ruby with a temporary place to live, food to eat, and a generous wage to take care of his beloved pets.

As Ruby and Bane interact with one another the sexual tension heats up.  Their attraction to one another is scorching hot, and their interactions are filled with flirting, teasing, and sexual tension.  As they video chat daily, they find themselves fantasizing about one another, and caring about each other on a deeper level.  What will happen, when Bane returns from his trip?

I loved seeing their relationship grow richer and gaining more substance to it.  However, it was  mostly filled with a ton of light moments, awkward hilarious interactions, jealous possessive moments, and top-notch swoons!

Shacking Up was such a fun, light-hearted, feel good romance!  I recommend it if you're in the mood for a lot of laughs, sighs, and blushes!!!  

My Rating:

I give, Shacking Up, by Helena Hunting, 4.5 Naughty, Outrageous, Belly Laugh Filled Stars!!!

Synopsis:

***This is the sixth book in the series. First five books must be read in order to fully understand this story line.***

The king in my world fell and a new one slid into place. 

He wasn’t just. 
He wasn’t FAIR. 
He was cruel and hateful and twisted. 

But I had this black king figured out. 
Or so I thought. 

The game became complicated because my black king had some new moves and one of those involved my heart. Hope trickled in for the briefest of moments. 

That is, until my black king and my heart sided against me. Those two didn’t play FAIR. They used me as their pawn in a bigger game—a game I didn’t know how to play. 

The laws changed. I didn’t play by their rules anymore, for the queen makes up her own. 

I am not a pawn. 
I am not theirs to use and abuse. 
I belong to nobody. 

There are new players on the board and they don’t play FAIR either. But the white king does know how to treat his queen. And together, they will make them pay. 

All’s FAIR in love and war, right? 
Definitely not this time.

***Warning*** This Isn't Fair, Baby is a dark romance. Strong sexual themes and violence, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to dark themes, then this story is not for you.

Review:


If you are a fan of Dark Romance, look no further! The War & Peace Series, by K. Webster, is your next unputdownable reading escape! Each new addition to this series leaves me gasping for air and on the edge of my seat! I love this series so much because with K. Webster, you never know what will happen next. She's the Queen of darkness and everything is possible in her books! 

This Isn't Fair, Baby is book number six in the War & Peace Series. You absolutely need to read all the previous books to follow Vienna's story. All the characters are linked in some kinds of way and if you skip a book, you're missing out on many details that will help you figure out stuff.

This book is very difficult to review because I don't want to give anything away from the sensational, twisted and intense powerful journey that is This Isn't Fair, Baby. What I will tell you is that I have a huge girl crush on the heroine and I'm melting all kinds for the hero in this book. Vienna is the kind of heroine that I love to cheer for. She's fierce, confident and a warrior. She completely took me by surprise and I was turning the pages so fast to discover what she would do next. Don't even get me started on the hero. He's bad to the bone and charming all at once. He's intense and protective. These two have some serious chemistry going on and the steamy scenes were insanely hot! It was a reading journey that left me wanting more of these two characters.

There is one final book that will be released for this series. I'm already preparing my tissues because I DO NOT WANT TO LET THESE CHARACTERS GO!!! I love them to pieces and I will never forget the unforgettable reading escape that I had with this series. I'm scared of what will happen in the next book. K. Webster is the Queen of Darkness and I am absolutely positive that the final installment of this series will make me ugly cry. 

Rating:


I give, This Isn't Fair Baby, by K. Webster, 5 intoxicating, all-consuming, sensual, steamy, darkly twisted stars!
