My Review (ARC provided)

Five Stars!


The Perfect Catch was just that, perfect! Walker was pure perfection and Kate was such a uniquely written heroine. She was strong and self-confident, didn’t let much get to her but the Walker was the one thing that broke her strong composure. It showed how human she was. I love that about Meghan’s writing. Walker was so closed off and in the beginning, I just knew he had a backstory that would explain the way he was. I knew I liked Walker and as I read more and more I began to love his character. 


“There is something to be said for someone who doesn’t talk very much. When they speak, their words hold more of a punch than ever expected.”


Kate is the team’s new PR manager and she needs to help Walker clean up his image for the Bobbie’s. She knows Walker will be tough to crack but she didn’t realize beyond that wall and rough exterior there is a softness to Walker that no one gets to see. The more and more time they spend together they form a bond and attachment that neither can seem to deny. Kate gets Walker, she listens to him and he hasn’t had much of that in his life. She accepts him for him and doesn’t care about everything else that surrounds him. They know they can’t act on it but what is one night?


“I’m not a soft man, never will be, but I do feel as though Kate dug deep enough that she found the man I want to be.”


This book will have you panting and begging for something to happen between these two. Meghan is a master at sexual tension but holy crap this one was crazy, like me yelling at the book in frustration for these two to get some relief. Haha, but anyways I love Meghan’s writing, her stories, her humor, and this book was another home run. See what I did there?

BLURB:

"Kiss me. Just this once . . . please Walker."

Those whispered words were my undoing . . .

As the most hated player in baseball, I had two options: either clean up my image or pack my bags. Being traded wasn't an option which only meant one thing, I had to become compliant.

That's how I found myself sharing a small bistro table with Kate Chapman, the Chicago Bobbies newest PR Manager. Devastatingly beautiful, vastly intelligent, and incredibly cunning, she knows exactly how to handle my grumpy demeanor.

It was supposed to be simple. Book some PR events, show up, smile for the camera, and be done. But one massive mistake on my end sends me into the trenches with Kate, forcing me to open up to her.

Innocent glances turn into cordial encounters.
Secret touches turn into tempting invitations.
And dangerous nights alone turn into consuming desperation.

I’ve never wanted a woman as much as I want her. And I know she wants me, but there’s a no fraternizing with the players rule. Neither of us can afford to lose our jobs, but we also can't seem to keep our hands off each other either.

EXCERPT:

I slip on my clothes, going for a pair of jeans and a long-sleeved Henley. I push the sleeves up, still heated from the shower. I leave my hat in my locker, opting for a quick swab of styling pomade through my hair. I couldn’t care less what I look like, but Coach always likes us to be somewhat presentable after a game in case we run into any press.

Hungry and ready for my bed, I head out of the locker room and am making my way toward the players’ exit when a throat clears behind me. I glance over my shoulder to find Kate Chapman standing against the wall, her purse draped over her shoulder and a beautiful smile gracing her delicately freckled face.

She quickly gives me a once-over and says, “It was the socks.”

I can’t help it, I let out a low chuckle while slowly shaking my head and turning toward her. Hands in my pockets, I say, “It wasn’t the socks.”

Her mouth drops open in disbelief as she approaches me. “It was so the socks.” She points her finger at me.

“Don’t even deny it.”

“It was all my practice.”

“Yeah, practice with me. Just admit it, Rockwell, you had fun last night, the socks were a good luck charm, and you played your ass off tonight.”

I don’t believe in superstitions, which is unheard of when it comes to a baseball player, but I’ve never geared my play around being a habitual player, either. Instead, I do what feels right. So, believing in socks having a special power and helping me gather some hits tonight—nah, not real. But I will say this—having my socks up reminded me why I was behind that plate. It reminded me of being small again and taking joy in the little things.

Was it the socks? Maybe.

Was it the thought of the girl standing in front of me?

Maybe a little more.

“It wasn’t the socks.”

Her head falls back as she groans. “You’re so stubborn.” She makes eye contact with me again. “Do you realize that?”

“Yeah.” I rock on my heels, trying not to stare at her too much.
Just picture me pitching to you.

When I said that would be too distracting, I meant it. With her softly curled hair and her gorgeous smile that doesn’t seem to ever falter—unless I’m a total dick and walk out on her—she’s caught my eye.

She’s starting to imprint herself on my brain.

She’s starting to make me feel shit I shouldn’t be feeling.

“Well, I’m—”

“What are you doing right now?” I ask out of the blue, surprising myself, and her.

“Uh, I was going to give you a hard time and then go home?” she says with a hint of question at the end.

I nod at her. “Hungry?”

She eyes me suspiciously. “Starving.”

“Want to get some food?”

She chews on her bottom lip, thinking about her answer, and I know it’s not in a joking around way, but more so she’s afraid. Afraid of me, possibly. Afraid for her job, most likely.

So, I add, “You know, to discuss business.”

It’s against team policy to fraternize with the players. I know that, she knows that, but, for the life of me, after seeing that infectious joy on her face, I had to ask her. I had to try to spend more time with her.

“Well, if it’s business . . .” She smiles brightly and then nods behind her. “Follow me.”

Out Now A Kiss For A Kiss by Helena Hunting...Five Stars!

 

There’s a small complication.
A beautiful, sexy complication named Hanna.

A Kiss for A Kiss, an all-new second chance-at-love mature adult romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is available now!

I’m Jake Masterson, single dad, and the General Manager of Seattle’s NHL team. I walked away from a career as a player so I could raise my daughter. For the last twenty-plus years, Queenie has been my main priority, but now she’s getting married.
And there’s a small complication.
A beautiful, sexy complication named Hanna.
She’s my son-in-law’s older sister. Or at least that’s how they were raised. The truth is a little more scandalous than that.
I’ve been drawn to her from the moment I laid eyes on her. And I spent months trying to keep a lid on that attraction.
Until we finally give in.
It starts with one searing kiss, but quickly ends with us between the sheets—and in the shower, and the hot tub, you get the picture—and turns into months of sneaking around.
Here’s the problem: we live on opposite ends of the country. It can’t be anything but casual. And as I’ve already said…it’s complicated.
But when Hanna finds out she’s pregnant…suddenly things get real serious.

My Review: (ARC provided)

Five stars!

I have been waiting for this book! After reading Queenie and King’s story I immediately posted about wanting a book about Jake and Hanna. I was hoping for a novella, so when I heard about A Kiss for a Kiss being a full-length novel I was jumping for joy. Helena did such a good job with these characters. You truly felt like you were reading about a more mature hero and heroine just by the way everything was handled, and I have to say it was so refreshing to read about a 40 something couple, (being 40 something myself) and it still be fresh, smart, and sexy.

Jake and Hanna try so hard to have a fun fling without anyone knowing, they have had a thing for each other for a while planning their kid’s weddings together. They finally decide to act on it, but when a little mistake happens, they have to end their hidden romance. Let’s just say it throws King off and Queenie is ecstatic about the possible coupling of her dad and “mother-in-law”. I love the conflict and resolution in this book, and like I said I like how two mature adults handled it. I’m not saying they were perfect by any means but so human and realistic to what I can imagine would really happen in their predicament.

Jake is such a good man and Hanna such a good woman and the two of them just work together, and their chemistry was so HOT! I am so happy Helena gave her readers this book, it exceeded my expectations! 

 I recommend this book along with all the books in this series, you will not be disappointed!

Over The Moon by: K.K. Allen is out now!! Read my five star review!

Release Date: April 22

“My secrets have always kept me safe… until he saw my truth.”

 

Kingston Scott is the most eligible bachelor in professional football, a charming rebel on and off the field. He’s also in desperate need of an attitude adjustment.

 

After a reckless night on the town puts him behind bars, he’s sentenced to coach football at a sleepaway camp in the middle of nowhere. He’s not sure he’ll survive an entire month of torture… until he sees her. The intoxicating woman with the silver moon eyes, the reserved smile, and the past she’s determined to keep hidden.

 

Silver Livingston is the resident nurse at Camp Dakota, a beautiful temptress on and off the clock. She’s also a forbidden mystery to all who know her.

 

After a decade of living in the shadows of the safe haven she’s created, she receives news that threatens her perfect fa├žade. Silver isn’t sure what to do next… and then she sees him. The new arrival with the body of a god, a flashy smile, and evergreen eyes that burn straight through to her core.

 

Now, Silver isn’t sure which threat to fear most—the irresistible man she knows she must deny or the inevitable head-on collision with her past.

Five Stars!

I love this series so much! I was so excited to read book #4 of the BelleCurve series, each story is unique and nothing like the other, each character is different but yet you fall in love with them all.

Over The Moon introduces us to Silver and King, two very broken people, they both have had horrible pasts and want to let go and forget, both have gotten so involved with their careers and passion so they could forget. Forgetting isn’t easy and being the best at what you do and working hard still doesn’t make that happen. When we first meet King he comes across as arrogant, crass, and broody but once you get to know the real him that’s been hiding you find that all of that is a cover to the exceptional human that he is. He really made a turnaround from when we first meet him. And then there is “Nurse Silver” the mystery, she is this super-strong heroine but yet really scared. She’s set in her ways and doesn’t want to veer from them. Kingston is determined to open her up and you see it slowly start to happen.

I loved seeing their banter and bickering at the beginning that slowly turned into more, and you could feel their chemistry from the get-go. I usually can pick a favorite book in a series but K.K. Allen makes it really tough with yet another amazing book.

Five fake fiance stars!!

Holy hot chemistry! Stella and Brock “Romeo” are a sizzling hot couple, the sexual tension with these two was insane. I love fake fiance books and I love a friend and enemy to lovers book and this book had all three.

Stella and Romeo are in Hawaii for their friend’s wedding, (Greer and Arlo from See me After Class) both are single, Romeo wants nothing to do with Stella, but when something happens that Stella needs his help he relents and helps out.

Stellas runs into her father and his new girlfriend at the resort, to say she is surprised is an understatement, once she finds out the couple is engaged she decides (in her inebriated state) to tell them she’s engaged too.

Romeo the lucky fiance is not too happy to learn Stella is his bride to be, helping her is the last thing he wants to do, but he harbors deep feelings for her and can’t say no, no matter how bad she’s hurt him and his pride.

This book had me laughing so hard, it had me hot and bothered and it had me mad. Romeo and Stella are a great hero and heroine, I loved how they played off each other, I loved their friendship and I love how Stella finally let Romeo see her vulnerability and vice versa. This book is going on one of my top favorites of Meghan’s, there isn’t a negative thing I can say, put this one on the top of your list, but don’t forget to read See Me after Class and the novella Mr. Kline is Fine beforehand, you won’t be disappointed.
