I received this book from NetGalley for an honest review. I wanted to like this book but it went against almost everything that I love about romance novels. The prince, Andre was the weakest man in a book I have ever read. Don’t get me wrong I love a strong woman and a man who shows his emotions but Andre had no type of heroics to him whatsoever. Gemma protected him in every situation. Andre had no strengths to him whatsoever to justify his cockiness. I understand he was a prince a spoiled but he had no depth. The ending was so over the top with a country girl suddenly having the skills of an assassin. It was all to much to be believable. I was not a fan. I kept waiting on him to do something and he never did.
I received an advance copy of this book for an honest review. Jenny is on her way to an interview and runs into Ethan, literally. He has a smug attitude and dismissed Jenny, who is not one to back down. They have a less than friendly exchange and leave each other. Little does Jenny know, that Ethan is whom she is interviewing with. She walks in thinking she has lost the job before even being interviewed. However, she beats Ethan at his own game and is hired on the spot.
Ethan hates distractions because of his own inner struggles and Jenny is definitely a distraction for him. She is witty and sexy and has her own personal struggles, in dealing with the health issues of her father, However, Ethan’s walls slowly breakdown. He slowly lets Jenny into is life and cannot help the love that begins to build between them.
Jenny however, has her own reasons for holding back and Ethan must break threw her walls as well.
I enjoyed this book and the banter between Ethan and Jenny. The sexual tension was thick but once they let go the scenes were off the charts. It was a roller coaster ride of emotions. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
This book was adorable! In the beginning, the writing threw me off because it is breaking through the fourth wall and the characters are actually talking to us during some periods but once I got used to it, it was fine. The characters are young and the story is young but I enjoyed it even with my 41 year old mindset. Georgia is marketing executive and works for Kline’s company. The company has a dating app. that all employees must be members of anonymously. Kline, also has a cat whom he hates, which being a cat lover makes me enjoy this story even more. Back to the story, Kline needs a date for a fundraiser and he does not want the woman his mother has chosen for him. He tells mommy dearest that he already has a date, which he does not. He spots his employee Georgia in a hilarious situation and asks her to accompany him. She is taken by surprise and decides to join him. The date is hilarious and the whirlwind begins, because they do not realize they have been already in communications via Kline’s dating app. program.
I was surprised by the length of this book but also pleased by it. The story moved very well and placed the characters in many different and realistic situations as far as their friends and locations. That is the most important part of a book, in my opinion, because it makes you fall in love with the characters. It was hilarious, I laughed the entire time at these friends and lovers. It is the perfect book to lift your spirits. I look forward to the next.
I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley for an honest review. I have to say the normal books with a cliffhanger ending are short and annoying, because they leave all the depth for the next book(s). However, Hard Rules broke my self imposed stereotype and was a very sexy suspenseful read. Shane is a billionaire lawyer trying to legitimize his father’s company and his father is using this as his personal entertainment watching the brothers battle it out as he battles cancer. Shane meets Emily during a very sexy encounter in a coffee shop and is intrigued with her from there, even as she slips from his grasp.
Eventually they meet again and agree to one night togehther. Emily is fine with this because she has secrets of her own that she wants to keep that way. But, one night is not enough for Shane or Emily and the romance roller-coaster begins. With very sexy love scenes and a lot of wondering how this will end and who IS Emily really? What does she have to do with Shane’s family business. How with this story come back around? This was a great beginning to a series. Not sure how many books are in the series but this is a great start.

This is a book that makes me smile. I smiled throughout the entire book. The setting is like many books with a supposedly ugly duckling and hot guy but it is so much more. Daisy is the baby among her 3 sisters. The “wingman” Mason is asked by his brother to keep Daisy occupied while he talks to her sister. But Mason is really a good guy and feels bad for even doing it. Daisy does find out however and is obviously hurt, but comes up with a way for Mason to make it up to her by being her date for her sisters wedding. But, of course, that is too simple. This romance has to be believable. I don’t want to give too much away but the story goes from there. A “fake’ romance and true love in the end. I loved this story so much because it was quiet long but you needed the length in the story to give you the background and to put the characters in enough situations to make you love them and it worked. I was cheering for Mason and Daisy throughout the entire book. The book also sets up the next book in the series, which is Daisy’s sister, who we learn enough about to make you excited about what is to come.
Once again I wanted to give this book more stars but it was just too short. I love the premise but I want more. I like Dmitry for the first book (who does not love a sexy bookstore owner). I knew whoever his love interest was, she was going to be his opposite and she was. Harper is spunky and smart and everything Dmitry is not.
The sex scenes were hot as hell Leslie does a great job in that aspect. I would have love there to be 1 horizontal position and maybe a bed but the story moves so quickly there is not enough time. They catch the bad guy and live happily ever after.
If you are looking for a quick read for a plane flight, it is great. No long commitment. It can be read rather quickly, as with the entire series. I love the writing I just want her to go deeper…no pun intended.
All good things must come to an end but boy did it go out big. I think from the beginning of this series I worried for Sirena…will she ever find her boo? I loved her pin-up style and the fact that she handled the fellas really well.
It is so difficult for me to give reviews without spoiling the story but I will try. The story begins where the last left off, Sirena watching Hroarr,long hair, beard having, tan, in the shower (let’s just pause right there). As with the other stories we know they are mates, well Sirena does this, however is all new to Hroarr. He is the most arrogant guy ever…yes, worse than Hades LOL, but we find out why. We find a lot of surprises as a matter of fact.
I think my favorite part about this book is that Mrs. Jay, knows it will end and she writes it as such. She gives us closure throughout the story not haphazardly, it is thoroughly written out in detail. She brings every character we have met before back throughout the story. We are not left to wonder “what happened to….?” She lets us know. This is one of the best endings to a series I have read and definitely a top 5 in paranormal romance series. She has done it. Setta Jay has the most memorable sex scenes in romance. As I have told Setta Jay herself..”this please me”
