Who’d Have Thought by G. Benson 5 Star Review!

   Who’d Have Thought by G. Benson 5 Stars!

Top neurosurgeon Samantha Thomson needs to get married fast and is tightlipped as to why. And with over $200,000 on offer to tie the knot, no questions asked, cash-strapped ER nurse Hayden Pérez isn’t about to demand answers.

The deal is only for a year of marriage, but Hayden’s going into it knowing it will be a nightmare. Sam is complicated, rude, kind of cold, and someone Hayden barely tolerates at work, let alone wants to marry. The hardest part is that Hayden has to convince everyone around them that they’re madly in love and that racing down the aisle together is all they’ve ever wanted. What could possibly go wrong?

Review

 

This is one of the best romances I have read all year and I have read some fantastic books.

The love of the romance genre is alive and well on these pages and the book sings with the pleasure of a marriage of con and a private and uptight heroine vs a much more emotionial and blunt heroine.

It is grand. We get all that forced proximity joy. They know very little about each other and we get to learn about each of them as they learn each other.

It is a sexy as hell dance. Both are wonderful at their jobs in this amazing character driven love story.

The cast is great, the slow burn is great, the writing is spot on.

A 5 Star Romance to read again and again.

The Other Side of the Roses by R. Cooper Review

  The Other Side of the Roses by R. Cooper 3 Stars!

Sami is twenty-seven and happy to live at home with his family, even if he is a little lonely and dissatisfied with his job at a nursing home. Caring for people is what Sami does. Unfortunately, putting his loved ones first is also part of the reason Sami is single. As accepting as his parents are, he isn’t sure how they’d react if he brought home a boyfriend. So he spends more time than he should dreaming of what might be, and fighting with his younger sister over the perfect sunny spot on the couch. Which is probably why the perfect potential boyfriend chooses that moment to move in across the street.

There’s just one problem—his new neighbor isn’t really new. He’s the son of the woman Sami’s mother has had a feud with for years. Toby and Sami grew up together but were never allowed to say more than a few words to each other despite Sami’s repeated efforts. Quiet, serious Toby was Sami’s first and biggest crush, and everyone knew it—a big part of their reason their mothers didn’t get along. Toby’s mother went as far as planting dozens of thorny rose bushes around her house to ensure Sami couldn’t even see Toby anymore.

But Toby’s mother is long gone, and Toby has no interest in reviving the feud. If anything, he seems determined to end it. Finding out why, and if it has anything to do with the way he looks at Sami, means Sami will have to raise the issue with his family—and dare to step beyond the wall of roses that kept him out all those years ago.

Review

While I was utterly charmed by this funny sweet romance of Sami getting his high school crush of a nieghbor and loved every moment of it, this love story is too short to be satisfying.

There is a cute re meet, a great family, flirting, romantic gesture and then we get to a first date and a yes I like you and then we are done.

Gah. So, much more fun could have been had.

Sex Ed by Z.B. Heller Review

    Sex Ed by Z.B. Heller 4 Stars!!

Jaxson Dane is harboring a secret.

Not the fact that he’s a geeky comic book lover, or that he secretly draws his own comic, Bunny Fu Ninja Warrior. It’s not even classified information that he’s out and proud!

His secret is the shame that he’s a twenty-three-year-old virgin.
Jaxson isn’t waiting for marriage or even afraid of taking that step, he just hasn’t found the one guy who will accept all of his adorkable qualities. Due to an unfortunate mishap with a self-pleasuring apparatus and his favorite appendage, Jaxson meets
Tyler Mason. The emerald-green-eyed nurse is a witness to the mortifying incident, leaving Jaxon both grateful and disappointed in their one-time meeting.

And then Tyler somehow shows up at Jaxon’s family dinner. The very dinner at which Jaxson’s hidden virginity is revealed to everyone, including the captivating nurse.

Even though he secretly found the ER situation hilarious, Tyler is also able to look past it to see Jaxson’s genuine nature and is drawn to the charming and hapless comic book artist. He’s tempted to pursue the inexperienced Jaxson, but a recent and life-altering decision puts a damper on his wants and desires. However, the more time they spent together, the more willing he is to take the risk of juggling his new commitments and winning Jaxon’s affections.

A large, insane, and meddlesome family, two prying co-workers, and a sexy nurse are all trying to give Jaxson a crash course in Sex Ed. Will he pass?

Review

 really loves this romantic comedy. I smiled and laugh and read the best lines out loud.

It is adorable and sweet and zany. A bit over the top, yes, but super fun and light with characters that although they feel kooky also feel real.

I had no idea when I picked this up the ZB Heller had already told the Mom and Dad love story and the Uncles as well. I didn’t need those to enjoy this one but I will be picking them up.

Jaxson and Tyler are pretty normal in the vortex of the crazy that is Jaxson foul mouthed, oversharing, sex positive, very loving family.

Tyler just is really into Jaxson and its grand. Who wouldn’t be into this super smart sexy geek? He holds his own by electing to raise his nephew and being really witty,

Jaxson is everything. I love the virgin hero trope and the accident prone trope and I love why Jaxson is still a virgin He is super witty too.

There is a late in the book conflict that lasts a bit too long and I could use more Tyler and Jaxson time in relation to the wonderful secondary characters but overall this is a real charmer of a book.

There is great quote about comedy that opens the book and I think Heller does a great job of letting the situations be funny and the emotion be real.

Good stuff! Can’t wait for more!

Raw Heat by Charlotte Stein Review

Review:

Raw Heat - Charlotte Stein

Serena has spent her entire life in the underground, hiding with the rest of humanity from the werewolf plague above. Then she begins taking care of Connor—a werewolf the humans have captured to experiment on, in the hopes of uncovering a cure—and finds her entire belief system shaken.Connor isn’t a vicious animal, hell-bent on the destruction of the human race. He’s kind, thoughtful, and above all—absolutely delicious. The feelings he’s starting to inspire are sending Serena out of control…lewd, filthy, glorious feelings, which could cost her job as a nurse. Not to mention her life.Lust and love between a wolf and a human are strictly forbidden. But for Connor, Serena may be willing to break all the rules…

 

 

 

Review

 

Well, that was dark. This is a grim world where pretty much everyone is awful.

 

The hero and the heroine are shining lights in the world and the heroine’s struggle to overcome what she has been taught is compelling.

 

I longed for Connor’s point of view as we are so locked into the heroine’s and it would have made the world richer (as he knows more than she does).

 

Sexy, emotionial quick read.

Cyborg Fury (Burning Metal Book 2) by Lisa Lace Review

Review:

Cyborg Fury: A Science Fiction Cyborg Romance (Burning Metal) (Volume 2) - Lisa Lace

Cyborgs are no longer mere combat machines and are preparing to integrate into society. Natasha is a nurse at a cyborg rehabilitation center who discovers that her father has hidden one in his home – a soldier nicknamed Fury who was too risky to rehabilitate. If anyone finds out, they will terminate him.

Natasha is intrigued by the challenge of helping Fury. As a woman recently separated from her cheating husband, she can’t help but notice his handsome features and muscular build. The more time she spends working with the rapidly-improving cyborg, the more he seems like a better – and sexier – man than her ex ever was.

But Natasha’s ex won’t accept that their marriage is over. He’s not above resorting to threats and violence to get her back. Fury must find a way to protect Natasha and forge a future with her, even though his existence is illegal.

 

Review

 

I just couldn’t engage with this one no matter my love for cyborgs.

 

It might be long opening in the mind of neither the hero or the heroine. It might be the fact the the heroine is still married though unhappily at the start of the book.

 

I think I would have liked the book better it started later.
