Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.  

Growing up, the three of us were friends. 
He was the nerd. 
I was the playboy. 
She was the beauty. 

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits. He lied. 

I went off to college, and he got the girl. 
Amber never knew how I felt. 
They were together for years—before he broke her heart.  

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. 
When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room. 

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men. One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings. Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity. Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message. She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—the real me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.) 

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.  
When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

Synopsis: 

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.   

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s.  Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.   

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me. 

We ended up back in my hotel room.  The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number. 

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby.  Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit.  After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home. 

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems. 

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose? 

Nothing, I thought. 

It’s just sex, not love. 

But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

Review:


I'm always happy when I find out Vi Keeland is releasing a new book. I love her stories and her writing style is phenomenal! The strong connection between the characters make the story come alive and I always end up falling in love with them. I was excited about SNL and could not wait to meet Hunter and Natalia.

SNL was a fantastic love story. The chemistry between Natalia and Hunter was instant, but their slow burning love story is what stole my heart! I loved how they connected as days passed by. Natalia and Hunter 's story is unique and an emotional reading journey that left me speechless a few times. The author always has a way of including a twist in her stories and I did not see the twist in this story coming at all!

Natalia is a strong and confident heroine that you will love to cheer for and Hunter is a dirty talking, swoony and romantic hero that will melt your heart! I loved the secondary cast of characters in this story. They all connected very well with Natalia and Hunter. This was another fantastic reading journey by Vi Keeland. If you have not read this author yet, you are seriously missing out!

Rating:


I give, Sex Not Love, by Vi Keeland, 4 intense, sexy, passionate, giving love a chance stars!

Review:

My bookworm heart is always happy when K. Webster has a new release. It seems just like yesterday that I discovered this author and felt the effect of her words in my life. The first book I read from K. Webster was a dark romance. I learned with time that no matter the genre she writes, she always delivers an unforgettable reading journey.

My Torin stole my tears, my breath and my first five star rating of the year. I know without a doubt that this book will have a top place in my ''Best of 2018'' list. This is the kind of story that lingers with you for days. 

I don't want to spoil anything about this book. This is the kind of story you need to read without knowing too much about it. The one thing that I will tell you is that you need to be prepared for an emotional and exceptional reading journey. These characters will own every piece of your heart from beginning to end. Casey is an incredible heroine that will have you cheering for her until the very end! 

I learned so much during this reading journey. It was eye-opening and interesting to follow Torin and the other characters around him. The author did a fantastic job with this book and I love it to pieces! There is another character that stole my heart, but I won't mention his name or the role he plays in this story. You absolutely NEED to meet him! My Torin is the kind of story that makes me want to escape over and over again in Book Town. You do not want to miss this book! It's incredible!!!

Rating:

I give, My Torin, by K. Webster, 5 phenomenal, emotional, intense, moving, Casey-Casey stars!

Synopsis:

Tired of waiting for her big break in the fashion industry, Sky Gonzalez, eternal part-time student and overworked retail drone, quits her job, sublets her New York apartment, and embarks on a semester abroad study program in Paris. Paris! Time to throw caution to the winds and jump-start her dreams. What’s the worst that could happen? 

How about getting sent to the wrong Paris? As in Paris-frigging-Minnesota? -Bye-bye career dreams. Bye-bye glamour and haute couture. Hello flannel shirts, mind-numbing cold, zero bars on the cell phone, and socially challenged mountain men with tons of unruly facial hair. 

So yeah, let the truck barreling her way hit her, please. Less painful. 

Logan should have dodged the little lost waif and kept on driving. Who in their right mind walked in the middle of the road, dressed in white from head to high heels, during a snowstorm? Clueless city girls, that's who. Sky is all that Logan has gladly left behind: stylish, cosmopolitan, and a massive pain in the butt. He wouldn’t trade a single day in his quirky little corner of the woods for all the high-maintenance beauties the city can offer. 

Too bad this beauty has been deemed a health hazard and quarantined in his house. Damn his doomsday-prepper neighbors and their paranoid emergency protocols. Now he has to keep Sky in and the pandemic squad out until the roads are clear. The question is, will that happen before or after Sky realizes she's under house arrest? 

Ah, the best-laid plans...

Excerpt:


This was so not happening. “Are you serious?” Sky choked out. 

“I’m afraid so. I’ll make it up to you later, I swear. Get dressed.” Logan reached for the keys, unlocked one cuff, freed her from the headboard, and jumped off the bed. “Dark clothes. Camo if you’ve got it.” 

She snorted, sitting up. “You’re joking, right? The closest I’ve gotten to camo was watching—with contempt, I might add—an episode of Duck Dynasty.” 

“Black sweatpants then.” 

Sure, like she had packed that for Paris. The only sweatpants she had were gold and pink. Prada, spring collection. 

“Where’s the key for the cuffs?” she asked, looking around.

“I left it on the bed,” Logan shouted from the closet. -Sky patted the bedsheets but no luck. “Can’t find it.” 

Logan came back carrying a big rucksack. He left it on the floor and lifted the bedcovers. No key. “Maybe it fell on the floor?” 

Sky pointed at the rucksack, ominously similar to the ones she’d seen the 10K participants carry. “Don’t tell me. Bug-out bag?” 

“Bug-out bag. We need to hurry. They time these drills. If we mess up their schedule, we won’t ever live it down. Get ready. I’ll search for the key.” 

Where had she gone wrong? She’d had a nice, comfortable city life. Friday meant cosmopolitans, sexy clothes, and a fancy date with dinner and dancing. Hot sex if she was lucky. Now? She was in the middle of nowhere, getting ready for an evacuation drill, her mascara down her chest, her hair a mess, and her clit hurting like a bitch from not coming. No dinner. No dancing. 

She heard the front door opening and a woman yelling, “Logan! Move it! Where are you?” 

“My sister got tired of waiting outside.” 

“Forget the key and go meet her downstairs,” Sky urged him. “Before she gets in here. Or worse, before Arnie attacks her.” 

“Fuck.” Logan grabbed the bag and dashed out of the room. 

“We’re coming! Go back to the car. Give us a minute.” 

“You got thirty seconds,” was the annoyed reply. 

Sky pulled the first long-sleeved-shirt she could find over herself, hoping to cover the cuffs hanging from one wrist. It was Logan’s, so it went down to her knees. Whatever. She ran to her room and put on the pink-and-gold sweatpants and the black-and-red rubber boots. Jesus Christ, talk about hillbillying it. 

She dashed downstairs. Logan was holding the front door for her. Outside, the horn on a big, black truck was blaring. 

“About time,” said the driver, a gruff man dressed in camo, as they jumped in the vehicle. A woman with pixie-cut hair, also wearing camo, was riding shotgun. Megan, Logan’s sister, Sky presumed. 

“If you batshit wackos would schedule your damn drills at a more reasonable hour, or let us know beforehand, this wouldn’t happen,” Logan snapped back. “It wouldn’t be much of an emergency evacuation drill if we gave notice beforehand, would it?” the pixie lady said.
