Love in Lingerie by Alessandra Torre **ARC Review**

I hired her to fix my company, to bring Marks Lingerie back to life. I didn’t expect her to become my friend. I didn’t expect to fall in love with her.

The first rule of business is to never touch your employees. I think there is another rule about not falling for your best friend—a rule against imagining the curves of her body, or the way her breathing would change if I pulled down her panties and unzipped my pants.

Now, I can’t wait any longer. I’m tossing out the rules.

Damn the company.
Damn our friendship.
Damn my fears.


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"If my need was lingerie, it'd be blood-red, with lines that scream for attention."

Trey Marks has a company with lingerie that sadly doesn't go well and he needs to hire a new Creative Director. That's how Kate comes in the picture and starts working for him. There's no doubt that her boss is incredibly hot and their chemistry is palpable between them. But when it comes to business Trey doesn't want to mix it with pleasure and especially when the company needs to be saved and Kate seems like the one who will bring back the company from the ashes.

On top of all that, Kate is engaged and Trey's sexual lifestyle needs to be kept away from her, because he thinks that this could ruin their friendship or any potential future with her on his side either as a co-partner or not.

"My company needs her. I need her. And, unfortunately, so does my cock."


I truly enjoyed this story! It was a slow burn romance, with sexual tension off the charts, their chemistry was truly palpable and the scenes between them were scorching!! Especially the scene with the pen was my most favorite one!! There are many scenes that also made me laugh, their banter and generally their connection was amazing.

And even though that at first I had hesitated because I thought this would go down a way I didn't want to see, I trusted Alessandra and she handled everything smoothly. My only issue maybe is the timeframe that confused me a little and I didn't realise the amount of time that passed through this story. Also the way that heroine handled his secret didn't amuse me, but hey who am I to judge the heroine's thoughts and actions? I still loved the book and I think it's now one of my favorite AT books!!

Strongly recommended. Can't wait for everyone to read this one!! ♥♥

Cock Tease ( My Dad's Best Friend's Romance #1) Cock Tease by J.L. Beck **ARC Review**




Carly was such a c#ck tease with her sexy curves, and sassy mouth. I should’ve known better than to kiss her, let alone want more. I mean come on' she was my best friends daughter and hardly legal age. 

Still she tempted me for far to long making my curiosity turn into obsession. Now I’m going to claim her as my own, and no one not even her father is going to keep us a part. 

-This book contains an older alpha male, with a hard on for a sassy young virgin. Contain’s elements of instalove, is a standalone, and as always has a HEA that will melt your heart.-


My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Nash had a crush on his best friend's little daughter for a long time now and Carly seems that she's feeling the same from all the teasing she has been doing to him. Will they get together nonetheless the age gap and the fact that her father is his best friend?


So, this was my first read of 2017 and sadly it didn't work for me. I can't deny that there were some sexy scenes that I enjoyed, but other than that I felt mostly awkward. I don't mind age gaps and the fact that he was her father's best friend was what intrigued me, so these weren't my issues, but the way it was written didn't amuse me. It seemed unrealistic, their thoughts, actions and reactions didn't make sense to me.

"Carly wasn't daddy's little girl anymore, she was Nash's."

I expected maybe more angst and turmoil when it came to her father and how he would deal with this or them hiding it from him, that's what made me more intrigued and willing to read this after all.

But just because this didn't work for me, it doesn't mean others wouldn't enjoy it. This read was short, light and sexy. So if you're up for something like that then this is for you :)

Shifter Date: Must Love Lions by Alma Black **ARC Review**


 Alexis Parrish is very single. Sassy and smart, she's great at her job as a journalist, but it's never given her the time to find the right man--specifically, a human. So when she gets assigned to interview Max, a lion shifter, about the new dating app he's created, she can't believe her intense attraction to him. After all, humans and shifters don't date.

Max is used to causing trouble. He broke tradition by creating the dating app, Shifter, which humans and shifters alike can use to answer the call of the wild. 

When Max challenges Alexis to give him a chance, she can't say no. A human like her has no business with this handsome alpha lion, but she can't resist his magnetism. Their chemistry is primal, their connection positively animalistic. After all, once you go shifter, you never go back.

But when a rogue shifter group against interspecies dating targets Alexis, Max will stop at nothing to protect her. It's more than his pride on the line; it's his mate.


Warning: If sassy, sexy, and carnal reads aren't your thing, this book isn't for you. It contains lots of dirty sex, violence, and witty banter.



My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"Love is dangerous. And wild. And spectacular."

Max is the leading alpha of the Pride and the maker of "Shifter Date", a dating app that matches humans with shifters. He is threading new waters with this move, since normally this isn't acceptable and even though humans know about their existance, they don't match with each other. But Max is thinking out of the box and wants to see if he can convince others as well.

There comes Alexis, a journalist that doesn't like or approve relationships between shifters and humans, but she has been ordered to take an interview by the maker of this new dating app and that's how she meets Max. The sexy shifter who challenges her to think otherwise, when she seems so against the wole idea.

"He didn't understand why no one else saw things the way he did. Love wanted what love wanted, and it didn't give a shit about gender, race or species. Lust was the same. He desired Alexis, and if Max was human, he'd be willing to be nothing would have stopped them from tearing each other's clothes off and going at it in his office. Right here. Right now."


I'm not really used in shifter romance to be honest, apart from vampires & werewolves, I definitely hadn't read about a lion shifter, so when I was approached to read and review this story at first I was a little hesitant, but I was also intrigued by the synopsis.

I loved the writing, the characters and the plot. Admittedly, I think there was a lot of potential and it could be explored furthermore, since there were many aspects that had me invested and I wanted to see more of them, like the Pride, his relationship with his parents, this new shifter who wanted him. I expected more 'drama' maybe or at least just a little bit more of everything. I know it was a small book and maybe that's why it felt that way, but I do believe there was plenty of potential that wasn't used sadly.


Still, I believe that this was a great work and it definitely didn't seem like a debut author writing this. If you like paranormal/ shifter romance stories, with lots of sexual tension and steamy scenes and also a great dosage of adventure, then this is a book you should give a chance to read. Congrats on your debut work, Alma! I'm looking forward to reading more by you!

PS: How awesome is the fact that Shifter Date is also a real site?? I had the quiz and my result was Dragon Shifters! Check it ou: https://www.shifterdate.com

Harley & Rose by Carmen Jenner *Blog Tour & Arc Review*





 Ever since she was a little girl, thirty-year-old Rose dreamed of the day Harley would carry her across the threshold on their honeymoon. So what if this isn’t her actual wedding day, and that she’s only here because Harley was left at the altar just a few hours earlier?

Trading San Francisco for paradise and swapping her bridesmaid’s bouquet for a Blue Hawaii, Rose hopes she can finally escape the friend zone.

Once upon a time they had been more than friends, but life got in the way. She’s spent every day since wishing Harley would get a clue.

She’s always been his best friend.

He’s always been hers.

She’s in love with him.

He’s... not in love with her.

He’s... marrying someone else.

He’s... hiding something.

He’s... well—it’s complicated.




Rose has been Harley's best friend since they were five years old. She has been in love with him since then and she wishes to get married with him one day. She is his Wendy and he is her Pan. Fate has other plans for them. Especially when he is getting married with another woman and she meets another man. But Fate has not finished with them. Plenty of stuff will happen since his bride to be abandons him and they take off to his honeymoon together. 

All I know is that there isn’t a Rose without Harley or a Harley without Rose. 

The story was probably the best I have read this year it's definitely listed as one of my top reads and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a good friends to lovers story. I'm still dealing with a book hangover and I can't get it out of my mind. I haven't been able to pick up anything else to read since I finished it. It was that good and it shook me to the core. It's a devastatingly beautiful story between two human beings who grew up together. I loved the writing, the flashbacks, the thoughts and the emotional torment that provoked me. I know that I won't be able to forget this read and it will stay with me.

Blurb
Dillon Keck knew Ashlyn Mayson was drunk when she suggested they get married. He knew he should have taken her back to their hotel room and put her to bed. Instead, he did what he had been craving to do since the moment they met.

Claim her as his.

Waking up married in Vegas isn't something Ashlyn Mayson ever thought would happen to her. Having Dillon, her boss, a man she thinks is a dick, insist they stay married is absurd, but every time he touches her, she gets lost in him and wonders if maybe they are meant to be together.

But someone isn't happy for Dillon and Ashlyn and their new found romance, and they're willing to do anything to keep them apart. Even commit murder.
