Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.

No questions asked.

Think about it.

Or don’t.

Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

–Simon

BFF K’s Review of Dear Bridget, I Want You

 

Neither Bridget nor Simon are looking for a relationship. They’re certainly not looking for love. But, the tale weaved in Dear Bridget, I Want You proves that sometimes love will come looking for you and when you least expect it!

Bridget is a widow raising her young son and doing the best that she can. Simon is never supposed to be more than a tenant renting a room in their home. Neither believes there can be more. Each are closed off for their own reasons until an unexpected exchange of late night love notes shifts their outlooks on the future.

Simon and Bridget have many expected and unexpected challenges to deal with and overcome. One in particular is a twist I didn’t see coming and it only adds to the excitement of the story. Bridget and Simon are great characters and their growth is fun to experience!

Dear Bridget, I Want You is a sweet and sentimental story about taking a second chance at love when the opportunity presents itself. This book is about strong characters who only get better when they give in to the love (and lust) they feel. You’ll fall in love with Bridget right along with Simon and Simon….this dirty-talking, big-loving Brit will win your heart and melt your panties! You will never regret adding this charming story to your TBR!

Review – Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan

 

 

 

Dirty Little Secret is the start to a sexy new series from New York Times bestselling author, Kendall Ryan…

 

She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide.

 

The way she looks at me—like I’m one of the heroes in the books she loves, like I’m broken, and she wants to be the one to piece me back together—it only complicates things further. I’m nobody’s hero.

 

But there’s no denying my tragic past reads like one of her favorite literary classics. It’s raw. Visceral. Captivating. And together, we’re a perfect mess.

How am I expected to resist when the sexual sparks zap between us and set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?

 

The story continues in Dirty Little Promise, releasing October 9th.

BFF K’s Review of Dirty Little Secret

 

Here are 2 warnings you need before you read, Dirty Little Lies:

1. This book ends with a cliffhanger. UGH! But, book two will be here very soon, so the wait is short!

2. There is a love triangle in this book. It’s an angsty little tension filled struggle to choose between two brothers. I’m not typically a fan of love triangles and will generally avoid a book that features them, so I want you to know you will find one in this book. But, I liked it anyway!

I was thrilled to have the audiobook release a couple of days early. I purchased it ASAP and added an audio listen to compliment my read. It was fantastic! Zachary Webber is a master!

Emma is a sweet and delightful librarian. She finds herself in a very unfamiliar world drawn to two men. Gavin and Cooper are brothers but they couldn’t be more different. The secrets are plentiful, the tension is palpable, and the sexy times are delectable!

The push and pull of the relationships makes this book a wild roller coaster ride with hairpin turns and wicked loopty-loops. It can be a little disorienting, but as soon as the ride comes to a stop, you’re ready to get back in line and do it all over again! Dirty Little Promise releases October 9th and the line forms behind me!

Review – One Night by Aleatha Romig

 

 

A sweet, fun, and sexy stand-alone romance from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

One night to remember

Is that too much to desire?

One night for fun, passion, and a chance to remember what it’s like to be a woman.
I’m not looking for love.
There’s a man in my life who loves me with all his heart. He has beautiful blue eyes, is three feet tall, and calls me mommy.
He’s my whole world and I’m his. Fate stole his daddy way too soon.
What would happen if I allowed fate another chance, just for one night?

One night to help a friend

Why did I agree to this?
Blind dates are disasters. If I weren’t helping the friend of a friend, I wouldn’t go.
I’m not looking for romance, love, or even a one-night stand.
After all, the man my friend knew is gone. I’m no longer the hockey star known for his “pep” on the ice and in the sack. I have a new life, and a new career—a new passion. I’m not looking for more.
When the blind date is a bust, could fate change everything?

One night doesn’t end with a kiss—it begins with one.

Be ready to laugh, cry, and fall head over heels as you meet Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha in this new sweet and sexy stand-alone romance, ONE NIGHT.

BFF K’s Review of One Night

 

Amanda had a wonderful life. She was married to her childhood sweetheart, her brother’s best friend. Until he was killed on a military deployment leaving her a young widow and single mom. Amanda has virtually put her own life on hold and is going through the motions of living day today until she meets Malcolm.

Malcolm is more or less starting a brand new life. New city. New career. New leaf. Gone are the nameless faceless puck bunny hook ups of his past. But with so many new things happening in his life, he’s not looking for any kind of relationship.

But what happens in a sweet and endearing love story when two characters are least looking for love? That’s right, they find each other! What follows is a fast and fabulous, whirlwind, life-changing romance that will leave you grinning and cheering for the inevitable HEA!

I enjoyed Amanda’s cautious approach to this new love. And, Malcolm is lovely, patient and kind. And did I mention patient? This sweet romance can be finished in no time at all and is a perfect pallet cleanser before or after your next dark and intense or angst-filled read!

Excerpt

Mandy

When we finally pull apart, before I can speak or even contemplate what happened, Malcolm’s blue eyes shine down on me, taking me in and reading me.

His voice rumbles through the background commotion of the bar. “You taste like sweet wine and smell like perfume and desire.”

Warmth fills my cheeks. “You taste like good beer.”

“Good? You’re a beer connoisseur?”

I shrug. “Mostly, I know cheap beer.”

He lifts my chin, bringing his indigo eyes into focus. The room disappears, making those blue orbs all I can see.

“I’m a connoisseur,” he says as his thumb gently rubs over my bruised lips. “And you, beautiful Mandy, if you were a beer, would never be a cheap one. No, you’re a rich custom craft brew. I see it in your eyes, feel it in your touch, and smell it in the air. Kissing a stranger isn’t something you do, is it?”

I try to move my eyes away, but Malcolm’s grip of my chin is unrelenting. Meeting his gaze, I reply, “No. I won’t even bore you with how long it’s been since I’ve kissed a real man.”

His eyes sparkle. “You kiss fake men?”

“Boys. Well, only one actually.”

“You kiss boys…” And then, as if the reality of his statement hits home, he asks, “You have a son?”

My heart flutters, its speed increasing by the second. “I do, but I don’t want to talk about him. Not because he isn’t important for he is—he’s my world—but because tonight isn’t about him. It’s about me.” I can’t gauge Malcolm’s reaction. I can only guess that he’s assuming that I’m some needy woman trying to get a man to take on the responsibility of a kid who isn’t his.

I reach out and splay my fingers over his chest. His heart is beating to match mine. “I don’t want to talk about him,” I continue, “because he’ll never know about you—I’ll never tell him and never introduce you. Don’t worry. I’m not after a man to rescue me. I’m perfectly content with my life as a mother. I just wanted to remember what it felt like to be a woman…for just one night.”

“I’m not anti-children—”

I shake my head. “Stop. That doesn’t matter.” It’s then that I notice the filled glasses on the table and laugh. “When did the waitress come?”

Malcolm bows his head until our noses touch. He inhales deeply, his eyes closing as his hand falls to my lap. “I’d say just after you.”

More heat floods my cheeks. “I-I didn’t…”

“Then we need to do something about that.” He looks again at the full glasses. “I think the drinks came while my tongue was busy getting to know your sweet mouth.” His hand splays over my thigh.

My breathing hitches. “Malcolm?”

“You said you want one night. One night doesn’t end with a kiss. It begins with one.”

They were best friends until they became roommates.

Booker Harris has spent the last several years pushing himself to become the best goalkeeper in the Championship League. Tired of living in the shadows of his headline-splashing brothers, he has finally carved a path of his own.

As a child, Poppy McAdams was content in her own little make-believe world, until the boy next door with dimples and pained eyes came barreling into her makeshift fort demanding all her attention.

Best friends for most of their lives, everything changes when Poppy abruptly leaves London for University.

Now she is back, and gone is the awkward girl from Booker’s youth. She has been replaced by a stunning woman with secrets. Secrets that Booker is desperate to know.

Sharing a bedroom wall with your best friend from childhood quickly turns to anything but sweet and innocent.

BFF K’s Review of Keeper

 

I was so excited to dive into Keeper and the book lived up to my every expectation! The Harris Brothers Series is full of smart, funny, sexy boys and the women who meet them stride for stride. Booker and Poppy are no exception. Their story is filled with witty banter, emotional discoveries and lots of romance.

Booker is the baby of the Harris clan. He’s stretching his wings and exerting his independence. But, he’s reluctant to reach too far beyond his comfort zone. He’s thrilled when his childhood BFF returns to London. Though Booker’s still in the dark about her abrupt and semi-secretive exit from his life, he’s thrilled to have her back. And he’s ecstatic to offer up a room in his new flat. When Poppy blows into the new digs looking smoking hot and all grown up, his feelings are suddenly way beyond BFF!

Poppy is conflicted. On one hand, she’s thrilled to be back in London and back in the orbit of her bestie, Booker. On the other hand, there’s an attraction that she fears is one-sided and uncontrollable. The story unfolds with the stress and tension of this back and forth dilemma!

Keeper can turn a Sports Romance rookie into a full-fledged fanatic. And, if you already cheer for a great Sports Romance, Keeper will solidify a top spot on your list of fan favorites!

Excerpt from Keeper

Locking secret eyes with Belle, I quickly unwrap my purple ice treat and pop it in my mouth. I lean across the counter so I’m only a foot away from Booker, who’s now watching my lips. “So, Booker”—I suck hard and then take a nibble, my tongue swiping out to catch the syrupy liquid on my lips—“Do you know anyone who might be good for me?”

“Good for you for what?” Booker asks, his face devoid of any humour as he stares at my mouth with heat in his eyes.

“For a date. I thought maybe a teammate of yours might be good because they are familiar with Tower Park. They could show me around the stadium after the wedding. Give me a tour.” I wink.

His face turns red. “You’re not taking one of my fucking teammates to my brother’s wedding.”

“Why not?” I ask innocently and then plunge the lolly back in my mouth, going deeper this time.

He frowns as he watches my lips. “Because if you want a bloody tour of Tower Park, I can give you one.”

Rolling my eyes, I reply, “Fine, he doesn’t have to give me a tour. But I’m out of touch with people since I left, and you have a gaggle of teammates, Book. Surely you know someone who wouldn’t hate to spend the evening with me.”

“Roan DeWalt would be fun for her!” Vi interjects, snapping everyone’s attention to her as she whisks something in a bowl.

Tanner pipes up next. “Over my dead body he’s coming to my wedding. I’ve finally stopped wishing dismemberment on the prat.”

“It was only a suggestion!” Vi peals, looking perplexed. “It’s just that I set him up with our cousin Alice and she loved him! Roan is a South African dreamboat.” She waggles her eyebrows at me and I can’t help but smile. 

Suddenly, Booker stands, his stool screeching on the marble floor as he pushes it away. “Not Roan. Not any Bethnal players. None of them would work. You’re not their type.”

I hear Vi suck in a breath of air, and my cheeks heat with embarrassment. “Why not?” My jaw is tight with anger as my ice lolly drips, forgotten between my two fingers.

His fists clench on the counter. “Because I know you, Poppy. You’re not the kind of girl they’d go for.”

The way he’s acting gets right up my nose. I wanted to make him jealous, but that’s not what’s happening. He’s insinuating I’m not good enough for his mates, as if they’d never go for anyone like me. He doesn’t even know me as an adult. He’s pigeonholing me into the Poppy he thought he used to know. It’s complete and utter shit! “If you actually think I’m not good enough for your team—”

“They’re not good enough for you!” he shouts, interrupting me as he leans over the counter to get in my face. Booker eyes me hard, clearly not amused by my request. “No teammates, Pop. Not Roan. Not anyone. Got it?” His shoulders rise and fall as he pins me with the most aggressive face I’ve ever seen on him.

I can tell the moment he snaps out of it because his neck turns red and he looks around at his family, who are all staring at us with their mouths open. He shoves two hands through his hair as he turns on his heel and strides out the back door and into the garden.

It’s quiet in the kitchen as everyone sits there gobsmacked. 

“Wrong button,” Tanner quips and Belle elbows him in the ribs. I turn my red face to look at her and she nods with reassurance.

“I hope you girls know what you’re doing,” Vi says. Then she wipes her hands off and tosses the tea towel in front of me as she scurries out after Booker.

Review – Summer Break by Andrea Johnston

 

Title: Summer Break (Phoebe & Madsen Part 2)
Author: Andrea Johnston
Release Date: August 25, 2017
Cover Design: Uplifting Designs

I promised her we’d be more.

I promised I’d let her set the pace.

I keep my promises.

Phoebe Stromberg is the sun and moon to my day.
She sets my heart and soul on fire and not just between the sheets.
I’m determined to show her how great we can be and get one of the labels she refuses to admit I’ve earned – boyfriend.

Summer Break on a California beach with nothing but fun, sun, and orgasms should be plenty to prove just how great we can be.
A single email and an offer I can’t refuse threatens to make all my efforts pointless.

 

Summer Break: When boys become men and my girl admits we’re more.

BFF K’s Review of Summer Break

 

The summer days are waning. But there is still time to enjoy one final taste of hot and spicy summer romance. Summer Break by Andrea Johnston is the perfect way to wrap up a delightful summer full of beach reads.
In Summer Break, we catch up with Madsen and Phoebe, who we met in Spring Break. They are ready to spend the last few weeks of their final summer after college together with their best friends, enjoying the sand and surf ala MTV summer Beach House. But their emotions and plans are much more complicated. Phoebe is still having trouble admitting the depths of her true feelings for Madsen. And Madsen is hopelessly head over heels in love but frustrated at her inability to commit to forever with him.
Summer Break is the perfect continuation to Madsen & Phoebe’s storyline. We see the progression of their relationship as both firm and tentative and as a reader you will desperately want them to figure it out and fix it forever. This novella is a sweet and steamy pallet cleanser that’s perfect after another for intense read. I highly recommend both Spring Break and Summer Break as delightfully charming and enjoyable, quick reads that will end way too soon. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in this fun NA series! Pick up summer break for just $.99 or read it for free on Kindle unlimited. And, enjoy the fast sleeting days of summer.

Review – The Beauty of Us by Kristen Proby

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a sexy, new standalone contemporary romance in her Fusion Series, THE BEAUTY OF US, released August 22, 2017! Grab your copy today and get to know Trevor and Riley!

 

 

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby delivers another sizzling novel in her delectable and sexy Fusion series.

Riley Gibson is over the moon at the prospect of having her restaurant, Seduction, on the Best Bites TV network. This could be the big break she’s been waiting for. But the idea of having an in-house show on a regular basis is a whole other matter. Their lives would be turned upside down, and convincing Mia, her best friend and head chef of Seduction, that having cameras in her kitchen every day is a good idea is daunting. Still, Riley knows it’s an opportunity she can’t afford to pass on. And when she meets Trevor Cooper, the show’s executive producer, she’s stunned by their intense chemistry.

Trevor’s sole intention is to persuade Riley to allow Best Bites TV to do a show on her restaurant. But when he walks into Riley’s office, he stops dead in his tracks. The professional, aloof woman on the phone is incredibly beautiful and funny. But can he convince her that he’s interested in Riley for himself? Or is he using the undeniable pull between them to persuade her to agree to his offer?

BFF K’s Review of The Beauty of Us

 

Riley is fed up! She’s exhausted by the trolls she’s met in the online dating world. She has high standards, but believes she deserves to find a man who will rise to her expectations. It is refreshing to read a heroine who is confident in herself and her abilities. She doesn’t need a man to complete her or make her feel whole. Riley wants a partner in life; she’s just not sure where to find him.

Lucky for her, Trevor walks into her life when she never expected him. He shows up at Seduction to film a new show centered around the women and their restaurant. There is an instant attraction between Trevor and Riley. He makes it his mission to prove that there are good men in the world and to show Riley just how she deserves to be treated.

The Beauty of Us is a story about strong characters who know what they want and deserve and rejoice when they find it. It’s a thoroughly enjoyable read and one that contemporary romance readers will fall in love with. This is a great continuation in the Fusion Series, but each book can be read and enjoyed as a standalone. This series should definitely be on your TBR if you love strong and successful characters, a little steam and several HEA’s! And, Sebastian York narrates the audio, so you know it’s aural magic! Audiobook is a GREAT way to enjoy this series!

Excerpt

~TREVOR~

“So, THIS WAS a good date,” Riley says later as I drive her home. She rode to work with Addie so I could take her home after our date.

“I’m glad you approve,” I reply, and kiss the back of her hand. “Now, I won’t be calling or texting for three days.”

“Why?”

“Because that’s how it’s done.” I sigh and shrug, as if to say, What can I do? Riley chuckles.

“Well, then I’ll text the girls ‘I hate this guy,’ and then you’ll text and I’ll be all, ‘Never mind. He just texted.’”

“Yes, I believe you’re familiar with how this works.”

“Well,” she says. “I’m not really much of a drama girl. You should just go ahead and call or text whenever you want to.”

“Really? You’re not one for drama? I seem to remember someone barging into my apartment last night, yelling at me, because her date didn’t go well.”

I’m only human, Trevor,” she says with a smile. “I never claimed to be perfect.”

I laugh as she points out her driveway and I pull in, then escort her up to her door.

“I had fun,” she says.

“You sound surprised.”

“Pleasantly surprised,” she says. “Do you want to come in?”

“yes,” I reply, and cage her in against the door. “But I’m not going to.”

She swallows hard. “You aren’t?”

“No.” I kiss her forehead.

“Why not?” It’s a whisper now.

“Because this is the first date,” I remind her, and kiss her cheek. “So I’m going to be a gentleman and say good night right here on your porch.”

“Well, damn.”

I grin and nudge her face up to mine, and let myself sink into her, our lips tangled. She fists her hands in my shirt at my sides, holding on tight, and giving back as good as she gets. She lifts up higher on her toes and presses her breasts to my chest, and fuck me, it’s all I can do not to scoop her up., take her inside, and fuck her into the mattress.

Instead, I pull back gently, regretfully.

“Thank you for tonight,” I murmur, and watch with humor as she struggles to open her eyes. The attraction is definitely not one-sided.

“Okay,” she says, and touches her lips with her fingertips. “I mean, you’re welcome. And thank you.” She smiles, opens her door, and slips inside.

And just like that, she’s gone.

But I can faintly hear her say, “Holy shit,” on the other side of the door.

No, she’s not immune to me either.

About the Author

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

Review – Beneath The Truth by Meghan March

 

 

From USA Today bestselling author Meghan March comes the final sexy standalone set in the Beneath world of New Orleans.

I used to believe there were lines in life you don’t cross.
Don’t lie. Don’t cheat. Don’t steal.
Until I learned people don’t always practice what they preach.
I turned in my badge and gun and walked away from everything.
Then I got the call no one wants, and I’m back in New Orleans.
What I don’t expect is for her to be here too.
Another line you don’t cross?
Don’t touch your best friend’s little sister.
She’s always been off-limits.
Too bad I don’t follow the rules anymore.

BFF K’s Review of Beneath The Truth

 

I’ve shed a few tears today. There were sad tears to mark the end of one of my most favorite series in the last few years. There were happy tears for the way each of the storylines was completed. There were also some really big smiles, because you can’t ask for more than that from one of your favorite authors.

The Beneath Series has followed a somewhat-mismatched group of New Orleans residents. Their lives crisscrossed and soon became intertwined with one another. They have helped each other, fought with each other, fought for each other and saved each other countless times throughout the seven book series. Beneath The Truth was the perfect conclusion to the series.

Each of the books in the Beneath Series builds on the other as the characters mix it up together. However, the books can be read out of order or as standalones and they will deliver equal enjoyment. One of my favorite things about this series is the incredible audio narration. The entire series is narrated by my all-time favorite duo of Andi Arndt and Sebastian York. They bring the characters and the settings to life and make these fantastic books even better!

Detective turned civilian, Rhett Hennessy FINALLY gets the answers to questions that have plagued him throughout the series. To top it off, he gets the girl! And the fans of this series are the real winners. The Beneath Series is on my most recommended list and you absolutely need to add it to your TBR/TBL lists today!

An advance copy of this book was received. The reviewer purchased the audiobook copy. Receipt of the advance copy did not impact the content or independence of this review.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Excerpt from Beneath The Truth

Wham. My heart slammed against my ribs as it sped up about twenty beats per minute.

The heat and delicious woodsy citrus scent radiating from his body did good things to me. Things that made me want to do very bad things to him. I wasn’t a seventeen-year-old virgin anymore. I knew my way around a man, but I had to admit, the hipsters in Cali had nothing on a homegrown Louisiana man like Rhett.

When he spoke, he leaned in so close that I could feel his breath on my ear. “You missed that shot on purpose.”

My gaze jumped from the sexy five o’clock shadow shading his jaw to his piercing green eyes.

“Wha-what are you talking about?” I smacked myself mentally when my old stammer kicked in. Of course he would cause it.

“That shot. You missed on purpose. I saw you adjust at the last minute. Why?”

I swallowed the saliva pooling in my mouth and decided to take the safest exit from this situation. Lying.

“Cue slipped.”

His eyes narrowed on me. “You’re lying and you’re terrible at it, just like you’ve always been.” He reached up and pressed his thumb to my left eyebrow. “You get a twitch right here.”

Oh my God. Rhett Hennessy is touching me. And what’s more . . . he knows my tell. He noticed me!

The fifteen-year-old inside me did a terrible cartwheel at the realization. Okay, more of a round-off. With a tumble in the grass to finish. Whatever.

But outwardly, I was trapped in that green gaze until he decided to let me go—or until I came to my senses.

I cleared my throat and sidestepped him. “Whatever you say, hotshot. I need another drink.”

Focusing on putting one four-inch heel in front of the other without biting it, I escaped to the table and reached for the whiskey glass I’d left behind, interrupting my brother and the waitress. They both stared at me as I chugged the contents.

I’d always wondered what it would feel like to have Rhett’s attention, and now I knew. In a word, it was . . . unnerving.

“How’s the game going?” my brother asked.

“Fine.” Keeping my answer short meant he couldn’t tell that I was lying. Heath wasn’t nearly as observant as Rhett.

“You winning?”

Thanking the Lord that Heath obviously hadn’t been watching, I shrugged. “I guess.”

He glanced toward Rhett and then back to me. “The sister I know and love doesn’t lose at pool. Ever. Even to Rhett Hennessy.”

I lowered the glass to the table and straightened my shoulders. “Like they say, things change.”

He nodded slowly. “That may be true about most things, Flounder. But you’re a pool shark and we both know it.”

Before I could respond, Heath’s attention jumped back to the waitress. I took another ten seconds to gather myself, also known as drinking offensively in my mind, before I crossed the floor to face off against my former obsession.

“You all right, Red?” Rhett asked.

“Don’t call me that. And I’ve never been better.”

His gaze dipped to my feet and dragged up my body. “I can agree with that statement.”

Whoa. Who is this guy with the innuendo? A glance at his empty whiskey glass told me he was drinking heavily as well. Was this the booze talking? Or was Rhett Hennessy not just noticing me, but noticing me?

Either way, I had to play it cool. Or at least pretend to play it cool, since it seemed I might fall short.

“Your turn, hotshot. Better not miss, because I’ll clear the table next time,” I said, but my cocky attitude backfired.

Rhett didn’t miss. He sank his balls and then the eight, ending the game almost as quickly as it started. He returned his cue to the rack and turned to face me, all traces of the earlier heat banked, his expression shuttered.

“Game over.”

What the hell just happened?

BFF K’s Review of Palm South University Season 3

Very few series make me have slightly insane urges to get the author really intoxicated and beg to know the final outcome for all of the characters but….I have crazy, mad, obsessive, insane love for the Palm South University Series. I absolutely adore every bit of it! I love the characters: their crazy escapades, their relationships with one another, their happiness and their pain, their successes and their struggles. I am way more invested in Palm South University than any person should be immersed in a fictional world. I care deeply about what happens to Erin, Jess, Ashlei, Skyler, Bear, Cassie and Adam.

The season and episode format is not only fresh, unique and enjoyable, but so illustrative of the series. I’m thrilled that Season 3 was released all at once. It’s like binge watching your favorite show and craving more as soon as you’ve finished the Season Finale. Kandi Steiner, I’m ready for more – NOW! I desperately want this series to come to life on my small screen (TV or computer.) Passionflix, do you hear me?!?! Until then, I’ll anxiously wait for more of the sweetness to arrive on my Kindle!

Palm South University Season 3 is my idea of a perfect summer read. It’s sexy, fun, emotional and an absolute page-turner. It’s characters that you love and care about and they’ll keep you coming back season after season. PSU is a must for New Adult romance lovers. And, if you lived and loved Greek life, parts of this book will transport you back to the days of formals and communal living. It is everything and I am already aching for more. I’ll spend the next few months wondering what the gang is up to and anxiously awaiting their next semester’s adventures!Bring on PSU Season 4!

Review – Porter by Georgia Cates

 

 

Title: Porter
A Men of Lovibond Series Standalone
Author: Georgia Cates
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 4, 2017

 

My employee’s daughter. The tomboy. The kid who once did odd jobs around the brewery. That’s all she was… until three years passed and she walked into my office for an interview.

Frankee Dawson is no longer that girl I once called Kiddo. She’s grown into a beautiful, sexy, desirable woman. Very desirable. And that’s a problem. She’s my employee’s daughter. Lovibond family. And too young for me. Too innocent.

I want to feel her respond to my kiss.

I want her body to tremble as she anticipates my touch.

I want to learn all the places that bring her pleasure.

But mostly I want her to know that she’s never truly been loved by a man until me.

Frankee is my intern and under me for the summer. Literally. It’s a difficult secret to maintain when you can’t keep your hands off each other.

This was supposed to be a hot summer fling. Sex and fun without commitment—that’s what we called it. But we were wrong. This is more. I’ve never felt this way about a woman. Never cared more about someone else’s happiness more than my own.

I love her and I’m happy. So damn happy… until a terrible mistake from my past springs forward and threatens to rip us apart.

There are a million reasons for her to leave me. And trust me, she should. But all I really need is one good reason for her to stay.

BFF K’s Review of Porter

 

When you fall in love with the characters of a series, you always hope that the conclusion does justice to the characters and their storylines. I have been enamored with the Lovibond Brewing boys since I met Tap in book one of the series. And, I was excited to read Porter’s story and know that all is well for these characters I adore.

 

I was anxious to learn about Porter and the woman who would rock his world and I wasn’t disappointed. Frankee is everything he doesn’t realize he needs. She slips seamlessly back into his life, but in all new ways. He’s no longer her father’s unattainable boss and she’s definitely not the kiddo that used to follow him around with puppy dog eyes. But, is a relationship worth the risks to their work and their relationships with family, friends and co-workers? And, if the partnership is worth the risk, is it strong enough to stand up when it’s challenged?

 

Frankee and Porter are well-developed, relate-able characters. The story has elements of forbidden romance and second chance romance, though they did not have a romantic relationship when they first knew each other.  There is also a particularly evil character who threatens their relationship in a few mind blowing ways! Through it all, the story flows quickly and comes to very satisfying conclusions for both the book and the series.

 

If you haven’t met the men of Lovibond Brewing, you need to do that ASAP! Porter can be read as a standalone and would be perfectly enjoyable. However, you definitely don’t want to miss out on Tap, he’s one of my most favorite heroes. I strongly recommend grabbing a cold brew and curling up with this great series! I will miss the Lovibond Boys and their lady loves, but I can’t wait to see what Georgia Cates brings us next!

Excerpt

Unedited and subject to change.

Frankee and I stayed up until three in the morning. I couldn’t keep my hands off of her. Not when she was wearing that sexy-as-fuck lingerie.

I’ve never seen anyone wear anything like that. Sure, I’ve watched porn and seen it on those women, but never on a real-life woman. And never one in my bed.

Frankee is like my very own porno princess.

 I gave her six orgasms last night—one an hour. I’ve never done that before. Not that I don’t have the ability. I’ve just never been inclined to.

“Frankee.”

She doesn’t stir. Not even a little. I shake her shoulder this time. “Frankee. Wake up, baby. I have to go.”

She rolls to her back and slowly opens her eyes. “Someone fucked me into next week. You’ll have to check back with me when it comes around to see if I can wake up.”

“You don’t have to get up, but I do have to go.”

“No. Don’t go. Staaaay.” She has no idea how badly I want to.

At some point during the night, Frankee washed off her makeup, and I’m seeing her for the first time without cosmetics. It’s confirmed. She’s a natural beauty and doesn’t need that garbage on her face.

“I wish I could stay in this bed with you all day, but I promised Stout I’d help him move his stuff to his new house today. I was supposed to be there already, but I couldn’t bear to leave when you looked so beautiful in my bed.”

I already know he’s going to give me shit for being late.

“Wait a minute… before you go.”

Frankee dashes to the bathroom, still wearing her porno princess attire from last night. That is one convenient getup. I hope she has more of those.

She returns from the bathroom with her hair twisted into a topknot. I don’t know what it is that makes that so damn sexy.

She wraps her arms around my shoulders and lowers herself to straddle me on the bed. “Kiss me before you go.”

Her mouth is minty. And hungry, based on the way she devours my mouth and neck. “Is this your plan for tempting me to stay?”

Her hands are working to undo the button and zipper on my jeans. “No. This is.”

Review – Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

 

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.

He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.

When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend–smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.

He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he’d done.

Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.

Only it turned out, the man I’d just told off wasn’t the right guy.

Oops.  My mistake. 

Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.

I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?

That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.

Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.

I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.

Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.

This was going to be interesting…

BFF K’s Review of Beautify Mistake

rating_4_80

 

Beautiful Mistake is a deeper read than my usual rom-com. It’s filled with angst and tension. Caine West and Rachel Martin have so much baggage between the two of them you need a wagon and a flashlight to sort through it all. There is so much tension and sexual frustration, you can feel it seeping out of the pages. They don’t like each other. But, yet they do….they really, really do. That back and forth makes up the majority of the storyline. Until about 70% in and you’re hit with a bombshell. (More insightful readers might see the twist coming, I was caught by surprise.)

Vi Keeland does an excellent job creating characters that you want to cheer for. You’ll want Rachel and Caine to work out their issues and find a way to be together. That back and forth drives you from page to page from the beginning to the end of the book. (The book also has a remarkable, spiritual passage about coincidence that I absolutely love and completely agree with. Visit our BFF Book Blog Instagram to see the teaser image I created for the quote.)

There’s plenty of steam and lots of twists and turns to get to the culmination of their journey. In some ways, it almost seemed like all of the issues were wrapped up a little too nicely. In some cases the solutions to the problems in their lives and relationships, seemed a little too cleanly and easily solved. But, if you can suspend that reality, this is an enjoyable read, with an unexpected twist and I highly recommend Beautiful Mistake!
