Review...Blind Pass by Teagan Hunter

4.5 stars!

I love a little fairy tale spun into a book, and Teagan did such a good job with this one. Beauty meet Beast or should I say Ryan meet Rhodes. I even love the play on Ryan’s last name, Bell, very clever.

“He's my Beast, and I'm his Beauty.
We make no sense together, but I'll be damned if I let that stop us.”

Ryan is a beauty influencer with a glowing personality and Rhodes is the grumpy hockey player known as “The Beast.” Not only is Rhodes a beast on the ice but an unfortunate blade to the face also made his appearance seem beastly to others. After a drunken trip to Vegas, they wake up married. How will they make this work in order to avoid nasty publicity?

Let me start by saying this book hooked me, it was hard to put down and I found myself smiling a lot. This book makes you feel good, it has heartfelt moments, "Adrian, you're beautiful. Not despite your scar, but because of it, and laugh out loud ones, “He’s going to kidnap me and hold me hostage in his castle.”

And on a steam level of five, it was a solid five-plus, Rhodes is one hot man. Ryan and Rhodes may be opposites but they fit together perfectly. I love their back and forth banter and the smiles Ryan could get out of Rhodes, you could see as the book goes on that Ryan really starts to soften up that hard exterior Rhodes has and you truly learn why. He is broken and it is so beautiful seeing Ryan help him heal.

I love sports romance but hockey is my favorite, and Teagan does a wonderful job writing it. I can’t wait to get more of the “Carolina Comets!”

Five Stars!

I feel like every time I write a review after reading an MQ book, I start with, “Meghan has done it again” or something like that. Well, it’s true, the girl is on fire. Her books are addicting, sexy, funny, and page-turners, and this one I felt the same way. I was waiting for a story about Cora, I liked her character in all the other books and wanted to get to know her more, at the end of Earn Your Extra Credit when Pike was introduced I couldn’t wait to get a book about the two and oh my god is their story HOT. Not only is it extremely sexy it is humorous, witty, and heartfelt, I fell in love with them.

Cora is ready to celebrate her divorce and go on a girl's trip to Vegas, Pike is in Vegas and wants to get out, both have had an attraction to each other since they met, so what happens when they run into each other at a Vegas bar? A night full of hot sex right? Wrong! A hilarious drunken evening that has them waking up full of regret.

There were so many laugh-out-loud moments in this book from beginning to end, even when it’s in an emotional place MQ knows where to add the humor. I loved how Pike just inserted himself into Cora’s life and Cora wasn’t having it. I loved the sexual tension and chemistry, (even when it wasn’t really happening). I could go on and on about the fun banter, pranks, and living situation but you need to read it to experience the brilliance of this story. And I love love how in the end it came full circle, very clever.

So once again, “Meghan has done it again” she will always be my go-to author. I’m hoping for a Killian story!

Blurb:

"You got married on your divorce-cation?"

That would unfortunately be correct.

I was hanging with the girls, celebrating my divorce when I saw him, my crush, sitting in the corner of the bar all alone. Being single and looking for a wild night, I asked him if he wanted to join me. To my delight, he said yes.

Drinks were consumed, fun was had and then . . . one drunken conversation with a cranky gondolier in Las Vegas led to an Uber lift through a drive-thru wedding chapel with the incredibly hot, British bad boy, Pike Greyson.

On paper, it seemed like I hit the jackpot. And if I wasn't fresh from a toxic marriage, I would have absolutely noticed the finer things about him.

But I wanted nothing to do with being married, so when I arrived back home from my eventful weekend in Vegas, the last thing I expected to see was a new doting husband already moved in.

I asked for an annulment, he pulled a Ross Geller and said no.

That's right, he said NO! Instead, he asked for three months to prove we could be good together.

Insanity clearly knocked him in the head and the only way I could convince him to give up on our sham of a marriage was to show him just how wrong we were for each other. Only problem with that was, he saw right through my every prank, every trick, and every yearning emotion I attempted to mask.

Out Now and early! Fired Up By: K.K. Allen


Through smoke and fire, she’s all I see.

Nothing gives me a bigger rush than when I’m responding to an emergency call.
As a firefighter EMT, my mission has always been clear.
Until I arrive at the scene of an accident and a dark-haired vixen, quite literally, trips into my life.
I quickly learn there’s more to the gorgeous photographer than meets the eye.

Meadow Matthews isn’t a woman who needs saving, but she just might save me.
As a single mom to an adorable little boy, she leaves little time for play.
Which is why, when I approach her with a fun opportunity, she instantly declines. 
Unfortunately, snapping photos of greased-up firefighters for a calendar isn’t her thing.

Lucky for us, she fires me up just enough to convince her otherwise.

Fired Up is a standalone single parent romance in the Bayside Heroes series!

Five Stars!

Asher and Meadow had me from the beginning. They both are very likable characters that are devoted to their careers.

Meadow had just made the move back to Tampa to be close to her mom and get some extra help with her son Tate. Asher divorced and ready to move on can’t get his mind off the new girl. They fall into several coincidental meet-ups before they decide to take the next step.

Meadow is a professional photographer and Asher is a firefighter, he really needs a photographer for the charity calendar he is putting together. This is what brings in the initial interest but it doesn’t revolve around working together.

Asher is this sweet, charming, and sexy man, he is a good guy and not your typical male whore, he likes commitment and after a failed marriage wants to try again. Meadow is a smart beautiful; woman that isn’t ready to take on a relationship yet, she trying to make it work in a new place as a widow, but Asher is just too tempting.

This is such an addictive read, it is cute, super sexy, and fun. K.K. has definitely become a go-to author of mine, every book I read has me wanting more. This book doesn’t have a whole lot of angst but it is heartfelt and packed with drama. And let me just say Asher is a swoony hero, the Halloween scene is HOT! I loved it!! Make this book one of the last books you read in 2021 because it will be on your favorite list.

Cover Reveal!! The Player Hater by: Sara Ney

 

Release Date: February 15


I would do anything for my best friend.

 

Well. Almost anything.

 

When she begs me to come on a weekend getaway so I can bond with her new boyfriend, I can’t say no—no matter how badly I want to. After all, who will keep an eye on the guy; he’s your stereotypical, professional football player (emphasis on PLAYER) and I don’t trust him with my friends heart.

 

Worse? He has the nerve to bring his single best friend Davis on the trip, too. Davis is too handsome, so funny and smart he can’t possibly be human. Grandma’s, babies and kittens all fall for his smile.

 

In fact, everyone adores but me **narrows eyes** What’s he hiding?

 

I refuse to fall for his act; at some point he’ll will drop the Good Guy act and show his true colors: he’s a player, too. He must be.

 

You know the saying: if he seems too good to be true, he probably is.

FIVE STARS!

 

A Not So Meet CuteA Not So Meet Cute by Meghan Quinn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Five Stars!

Let me start by saying Meghan had me craving a grilled cheese sandwich and I had to make one for dinner the other night.

I loved everything about this book! And the epilogue was my favorite, I was so hoping to get that for the epilogue and M.Q. did not disappoint. I don’t even know where to start on this review, I thought Lottie was hilarious and someone I’d want to be friends with. Huxley was likable for about 2 minutes and then became unlikable for a while. I knew he was good though and he was putting a shield up, you get little glimpses of his big heart but you get more of the stiff businessman and billionaire, that is until Lottie breaks him.

“My heart aches for him. But my heart is also wary. He’s playing tug-of-war with my heart, ripping and tearing it in every direction, stirring up anxiety and uncertainty.”

These two characters were so perfect together they both brought out each other’s strengths and good qualities. I definitely shipped them from the beginning. ;) I actually sent my friend a message telling her she needed to read the book and read it as soon as she could because I loved it that much and wanted to be able to talk to her about it.

So what happens when a billionaire is trying to make a deal and flat-out lies to the guy he’s making a deal with? And what happens when an unemployed business major goes searching for a rich husband? A Not So Meet Cute!! From Lottie and Huxley’s initial interaction to their last Meghan had me devouring this book. Talk about HOT, this book will leave you panting and wanting more. I love me some dirty talkers! There is so much to love about this book from Huxley’s brothers, Dave and Ellie, and Lottie’s family that I don’t want to give too much more away. Just know that you will be laughing one second and fanning yourself the next, you may also get mad but M.Q. takes you right back to smiling again. I’m hoping we get more of this awesome bunch! J.P and Kelsey, please!!!

“Just when you think you’ve hit rock bottom, when you don’t think there’s any way you could climb the mountain again to find happiness, you stumble across a trail, one that has its bumps and bruises, but offers a gorgeous outcome.”

This was one of the best fake fiance, enemies to lovers, romantic comedies I’ve read!
