Review – Fight For Her by Vanessa Vale

Review:

This book utterly wrecked me!  Seriously, I didn’t want to move out of my safe and lovely cocoon of happiness and emotion for HOURS after finishing this book.  Then, I did something rare….I picked the book back up and started over from page one.  Fight For Her was just that mind-blowingly FANTASTIC!!!  Our hero, Grayson, is dynamite, his passion for life just explodes from the very first word out of his mouth!  He is alpha male, smoking hot, and completely charming.  A fighter who has moved past his fighting days has now found something new to fight for…our charming and witty heroine, Emory.  I loved Emory.  She was a smart and classy woman who stood on her own, knew what she wanted, and wasn’t blown away by who Grayson was…or how much money he had.  The chemistry between these two was so erotic, my device spontaneously shut down twice (I’m gonna blame it on the chemistry…yep…not my battery dying).  This book was one long, drawn out lovemaking session…from the very moment Grayson “rescues” Emory until the very last sentence.  These two were clearly meant of each other, and no matter what they dealt with, it was very clear that they were soul mates.  I couldn’t get enough of them.  The plot was fantastic and kept me engaged every second.  The secondary characters brought the right amount of zest and humor to the book.  The sex scenes were mind blowing and erotic, not over-the-top or lacking in passion.  There was just enough suspense to keep you guessing and hooked without being to angsty or confusing. Truly, this book blew my socks off and sent me off on a mad dash to find any book I could by Vanessa (my previously over-flowing TBR is now bursting at the seams).  I’m dying to send a message to Ms. Vale and inquire about the next book in this series.  Because WOW. I can’t recommend this book enough.  5 stars!

Title: Chasing Kade
Series: Thrill of the Chase #1
Author: Anna Paige
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 17, 2017

 

Blurb

There’s no such thing as too much fun…

Wrong.
Incredibly, immeasurably, categorically false.
Try: It’s all fun and games until someone ends up in the tabloids.
Again.
 
Kade Edenfield was rock royalty. If every rock god in history gathered for dinner, his seat would be at the head of the table. He was that good. His band was elevated to a level few ever reached, and he was having the time of his life.
Until one misstep too many landed him on the front page of every gossip rag around the globe, and the band’s label decided to saddle them with a PR priss whose sole mission in life was to suck the fun right out of his.
He wanted her gone.
Until he realized he just plain wanted her.
 
Aubrey Taylor didn’t ask to be assigned to babysit a band full of troublemakers, but she wasn’t given a choice. Wanted or not, she intended to fix the mess they’d made. She’d do it quickly, efficiently, and then she’d get the hell out of there. Unfortunately, after meeting their openly hostile singer—the one with the notoriously menacing stare—it was clear she was in over her head. When Kade made a point to challenge her at every turn, unafraid of using intimidation to get her to back down, she found herself in even deeper trouble.
While she ‘officially’ resented and feared him, their power struggle secretly turned her on.
She desperately wanted to win their little standoff, but what was she supposed to do when she realized she wanted him even more?

Excerpt

 

I turned back to the table, not wanting to look at Kade. “Are you aware of how many groups have formed strictly for the two of you?” I asked Kane, navigating away from the hoo-ha pic as quickly as possible and looking up the largest group I’d found. “This one is dedicated strictly to the pursuit of ‘doubling down’ with the Edenfield twins. It’s scary how many thousands—thousands—of members are in this group. All looking to hook up with the two of you. I only found it because the recent pics of Kade have been photoshopped so many times by this group. They’re using a mirror image of Kade, shifting it until it looks like both of you are there, then adding themselves to the pic so they appear to be sandwiched between the two of you. And some of them look startlingly real. That’s how I discovered the group to begin with, I was half-convinced the pics were genuine when I first saw them.”
My fingers flew over the keys, navigating the discussion boards. “They even have ‘elite’ and ‘platinum’ members who all swear they have hooked up with at least one of you—those are platinum—and sometimes both of you—that would be the highly-coveted elite status.” I rolled my eyes, scrolling the list. It was suspiciously long, which made it even less believable than it already was.
Kane leaned over, eyeing the list. “I’d like to think I’d remember all of those.”
“Yeah, but a few might be legit.” This from Kade.
Kane and I both spun to look at him.
“The fuck, dude?” Kane cut his eyes to me. “That’s on the ‘need to know’ list and she didn’t need to know.”
I sat there for a minute trying to school my expression so that they couldn’t see the shock on my face. My mind was trying to formulate a response but I couldn’t conjure a single appropriate reaction.
“Oh, I’m sure she already knows all of our dirty little secrets. How else can she be expected to fix us if she doesn’t know exactly how fucked up we really are?” He glared at me. “Bet that’s why she’s so afraid. She’s seen all the skeletons in the closet.”
“She didn’t know, dumbass. Look at her.” Kane sounded concerned enough that I was momentarily convinced he’d start snapping his fingers in my face to try and check my response. “She’s… I don’t know what to call it… stunned? Appalled?”“Intrigued?” Kade hungrily dragged his gaze along my face and neck.

Review – The Play Mate by Kendall Ryan

REVIEW:

Kendall Ryan is a rock star!  Seriously, she’s an author but she writes so good, I consider her a writing rock star!  And The Play Mate is her triple platinum album!  I loved this book. Smith and Evie as so awesome, Webster doesn’t have enough words to describe the utter deliciousness that is all them!  Evie has been lusting over Smith, her brother’s best friend, forever and one night she decides to take matters in her own hands.  I about DIED reading the beginning of this book.  I adored Evie for both her brazen personality and witty charm.  Smith himself is one cool customer…he’s smoking hot and broody…and has been fighting the way Evie has made him feel for a long time.  How they manage to fight it when they have such blatant chemistry is beyond be but fight it as hard as they can, they did!  The Play Mate is one seriously long, drawn out session of foreplay that leaves you gasping for breathe and screaming out at the torturous pleasure just waiting for them to give in.  When that climax hits…the euphoria was astounding.   These two exude so much palpable heat, it’s a wonder people standing in their vicinity don’t burst into flames.  Nothing about this relationship is easy…a plot twist in their working environment and attempting to hide their relationship from Evie’s brother are two of the obstacles they face but the journey you take with them, from beginning to end, is very much worth the outcome.  The Play Mate kept me up all night….I literally stayed up until 4 am reading this book.  It was so addicting I couldn’t put it down.  If you love the brother’s best friend trope, this book is definitely one you do not want to miss.  The plot is engaging, the banter both humorous and snarky, the sex scenes are an out-of-body experience, and the love story….one for the record books.  You definitely don’t want to delay in reading this book!  I can’t wait to see what Ms. Ryan treats us with next!  5 stars!

 

the-play-mate-kendall-ryanSmith Hamilton has it all—he’s smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he’s not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm’s length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him.

Evie Reed knows she’s blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family’s lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She’s crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way.

Except that when Evie’s plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.
