Bride by Mistake (Montana Born Brides #3)

Bride by Mistake

Bride by Mistake is the third book in the Montana Born Brides series which is based in the charming town Marietta. This was my first time reading a book by Nicole Helm and I did enjoy the sweet and sexy love story. There was great chemistry between Katlin and Beckett and the book was well written, but there was nothing new about the story of bad boy and good girl falling in love. I did enjoy that Nicole had highlighted the characters insecurities and showed their journey of moving past them, but I did wish the book was a bit more longer had more depth in both story and characters.

Rating: 3/5

The Sapphire Heist (Jewel 2)

The Sapphire Heist

(This review is based on the ARC provided by the publisher via Net Galley)

I am a fan of Lauren Blakely, so I was looking forward to reading The Sapphire Heist  as it was something different from my usual type of books.  Lauren delivered on the suspense, thrill and romance and her writing was flawless. The story was well conceived and kept us getting throughout the book. Steph and Jake were fun characters who had their personal flaws and I enjoyed how it took them time to trust each other completely. The chemistry and sex between both the characters were steamy and off the charts, which is always expected from Lauren's books. The secondary characters were also well developed and helped maintain the suspense throughout the entire book.  Looking forward to my next Lauren Blakely book.

Rating: 3.5/5

Dirty Sexy Saint (Dirty Sexy #1)

Dirty Sexy Saint

Dirty Sexy Saint is the first book in the Dirty Sexy series by Carly Phillips and Erik Wilde. I am a huge fan of Carly Phillips and her Dare to Love series and I was looking forward to reading this book and it did not disappoint. I loved the alpha male character Clay who loved helping everyone and giving them a chance. The writing was flawless, but I felt the first half of the book was dragged and there was not enough character development. Samantha was a very one dimensional character which I did not enjoy, but the chemistry between Clay and Samantha was combustible. I personally loved the scenes where Clay was fighting his attraction to Samantha. I enjoyed the secondary characters and cant wait to read Dirty Sexy Inked.

Rating: 3/5

One Last Fling

One Last Fling

(This review is based on an ARC e-book provided by the publisher via Net Galley)

One Last Fling was my first Leela Lou Dahlin book and I enjoyed it so much that I definitely will be looking out for more books written by Leela Lou. What I loved most about the book was the steaming hot chemistry between Ryder and Daisy which was off the charts. I also enjoyed Daisy's character who was not this thin super model, but a size 16 woman who embraced her curves and loves her food. The writing in the book was flawless and I commend Leela for the unique story of the double life billionaire looking for his bride as it was completely different from the usual contract marriages we see in these type of stories. I am a complete lover of alpha male characters, hence I loved Ryder's/Kaleb's character so much and the fact that he was a chef made him even more irresistible. This was one of my best reads in a long time and I personally cannot wait to read Leela's next book 

Rating: 4.5/5

His Forbidden Princess (Royal Holiday #4)

His Forbidden Princess

(This review is based on an ARC e-book provided by the publisher via Net Galley)

This was the first book I have read in the Royal Holiday series as well as it is the first time I have read a book written by Jeannie Moon. His Forbidden Princess is a short novel which provides you both with a fairy tale feeling and a suspense atmosphere. What I personally enjoyed about the book was the joy Princess Sofia felt in the simple things in life such as Twinkies and the ability of Ian to go from an alpha male who is in charge to a sweet and soft lover. Due to the novel being short, there was a lack of character development in both of the main leads, I also felt there were quite a few things that were left unexplained and could have been elaborated on. I do give credit to Jeannie for a good plot, but if she extended the book a bit more and spent more time on the chemistry and love story between Sofia and Ian, it would have been a much better book.

Rating: 3/5

I have finally become a professional reader

I am now a professional reader who will get copies of books from different authors to review before they are released.

Deja Date (Better Date Than Never #9)

Deja Date

Deja Date is book number 9 in the Better Than Never Date series by Susan Hatler. I always enjoy the short stand alone novels in the series as they give you the dose of romance which warms your heart up.  Deja date did not fail to deliver on the short and sweet romances which has been synonymous with this series. I was so in love with the books and its characters that I was left wanting more at the end. Susan has done a brilliant job with chemistry between Melinda and Nate who are faced with a second chance romance between them. I personally did not find any flaws in the writing and I felt a part of the story the entire way because Susan made the characters so realistic and engaging. My favorite part of the book was the growth of Melinda's character as she fulfilled her fathers Carpe Diem list throughout the book. Melinda story reflects the regrets we all live with in our lifetime and it sends out the message to all readers about how we must not just go through the motions of life, but actually live it by seizing the day. Hats off to Susan for a lovely romance book filled with drama which captured the readers heart and left us all longing for more.

Make - Believe Wedding (The Great Wedding Giveaway Series Book 9)

Make - Believe Wedding

Sarah Mayberry brings to us book 9 in The Great Wedding Giveaway Series. I have read previous books in this series which were written by different authors and I really enjoyed it, therefore I decided to read the latest installment Make - Believe Wedding which did not disappoint. This was a short, sweet and well written novel which will keep you smiling throughout. What I had enjoyed most is that the female lead character Andie was not your typical romance female lead because she was an electrician who was tough and could hold her own in a male dominated world.This was a great read and I look forward to reading more books by Sarah Mayberry and the next book in the series.

Rating: 3/5
