Synopsis:

Author’s Note: Sweet Obsession can be read as a standalone novel.

Everyone knows Brooke Wicks loves to have a good time.

She’s not interested in getting serious, settling down, or limiting herself to one man. So when she meets the sexy, irresistible Mason King, she sees another opportunity to let loose and go wild. But the gorgeous Aussie isn’t interested in just a quick fling with Brooke, and if she wants to get into his bed, she’s going to have to do it on his terms.

Loving fast and hard has always been Mason’s philosophy.

He doesn’t want a meaningless connection, he wants it all, and he wants it with Brooke. When she makes her one desire known—to hit it and quit it—Mason wages a plan to ensure Brooke keeps coming back for more. Or so he hopes.

Getting her attention was the easy part. Keeping it might be damn near impossible.

Sweet Obsession is where the Sweet Addiction series meets the Alabama Summer series.

Review:

Another off my 2016 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A book published in 2015. Sweet Addiction is a great name for this series as you will be addicted within a few pages. Great characters throughout – the women are sassy and the men are beyond hot.

You are taken on a bit of an emotional journey with Brooke throughout this book with how she views men and her relationships with them. She is a woman who knows what she wants and usually gets it. She loves sex and isn’t afraid to go out and get it when she wants – I mean the book starts with her just about to orgasm with a guy she picked up. She is just sick of the double standard she gets because of it. This all changes though when she meets Mason. One look from across the street and she knows that she wants him in her bed but getting him is proving a little more of a challenge than she is used to. He definitely pushes her out and past her comfort zones that’s for sure.

Mason has just opened up a hot yoga studio across the street from where Brooke works in a cake shop. The moment he meets her – holding a box of cupcake goodies – he know he wants her and gets the feeling that its very mutual. He just doesn’t expect her to come right out and ask for it. He can see right off that she is an interesting person and wants to get to know her better before thinking about sleeping with her. He knows he could easily sleep with her straight off the bat – to the point of taking her there and then in the street with the heat coming off them both – but he gets the feeling that it wouldn’t go any further than that. He does everything he can think of to get her round to his way of thinking and dating, something that is somewhat foreign to her.

To start with Brooke sees this as a challenge – one she is willing to take on as she just knows that the sex will be amazing (which it is) – but even after only spending a short amount of time with him she stops trying to jump him and starts to just relax and have some fun. But by getting her out of her comfort zones Mason might be at risk of pushing her too far. He knows what she was like before he met her and when he sees something he shouldn’t have he throws it back in her face. It’s at this moment that you want to just slap him in his face. His has to get her past out of his head to even begin to see a future with her.

Such fun characters to keep you entertained throughout. Even though this is actually book three in the series it can be read as a standalone – you won’t feel lost at all. All that will happen is that it will make you want to check out the rest of the series, especially to see how two of the characters in this book got together. It’s a sinfully addictive read wrapped in a sweet mix of cupcake heaven.

Sweet Revenge of the Werewolf

(Shifter Romance, Alpha Male Romance, BBW Romance, Paranormal Romance) by Jennifer Scocum

Rich Wolf seeking mate, curves preferred!

“Would you like to have a cup of coffee with me?”Some of the best stories start with this simple question. When Gerard asked me to take me out for a cup of coffee, I had no idea the things destiny had planned for me. I was on a mission to take revenge. I wanted to destroy the one who made my brother suffer. Little did I know that I would fall in love with the culprit!

He gave me every inch of his body and soul. He took me to the places that I never imagined even existed. He redefined what pleasure meant to me. He kissed me hard with a kind of passion that I never tasted. I didn’t realize how effortlessly I fell in love with him. I was his most cherished possession in no time.

But he was also the devil. He was the wolf and was capable of shifting to his beastly side as per his will. Trusting someone so strange and wild was the last thing in my mind, but I couldn’t stop myself from taking a bite of his life. I had to commit the sin and was ready to pay every consequence.

Sometimes, all it takes is a cup of coffee to give your heart!

Blog Tour and Review: ‘Free Booze Tonight’ by Chuck Freadhoff

 

Title: Free Booze Tonight 
Author: Chuck Freadhoff 

 

It was an offer he couldn’t refuse.
Joey, the bartender and very bad conman, agrees immediately when mob boss Vincent the Hammer, makes him an offer: turn Delilah, Vincent’s daughter, into a rock star, and do it fast, or spend eternity in a rolled up rug.
The task is simple – pluck a band out of thin air, pack a bar that no one ever comes into, and find a way to make Delilah, who Joey fears can’t even sing, into an overnight global success. Relying on his slick tongue, half-baked wits, a little blackmail, and a cast of characters who owe him favors, Joey follows an improbable and uproariously funny journey from near death to happiness.
Joey’s future is decided in an instant when Delilah’s gig is crashed by outlaw bikers, a posse of pissed off dwarves who want Joey dead, and a crowd of senior citizens, led by Joey’s grandmother, Ethel.
But when it’s all over, Joey’s learned the value of honesty and true love.
My%20Review

Goes down as another off my 2016 Bookworm Bingo Board – A book by an author new to you. This book has to have the strangest concoction of characters I have ever come across. Bizarrely put together but seemed to work out brilliantly. An interesting quirky read that will have you chuckling to yourself all the way through with the trouble that Joey manages to get himself into.

Joey seems to find himself in a lot of trouble right from the start. I mean he has to ask a friend to help dispose of a body within the first page. Granted he didn’t kill him but mob boss Vincent the Hammer is not going to care how it happen, just that it did. After Joey tried to con him he has found himself in a bit of a bind. Vincent’s first point of call was to just get rid of him but after a night to think about it – mainly due to the fact that the guy meant to get rid of him has gone missing – he decides that Joey can pay him back another way, by making his daughter a rock star and fast. Joey of course decides to take him up on this offer – not that he had much of a choice – but soon finds himself getting into more trouble than he thought he could.

Delilah doesn’t really agree with what her father does for a living and so if he suggests she do something then she will want to do the opposite. So when Joey turns up saying he is there to make her a rock star she decides she doesn’t want to be a musician anymore. Joey being quick witted and a bit of a sweet talker soon gets her back on board though. Next job on the list is to try and put together a band for a show that Saturday night. Calling in some favours gets him a band of sorts, though more like a group of misfits. All he is thinking is that he needs to create enough of a distraction on stage so people won’t hear Delilah sing as he thinks she won’t be able to. It’s not until they have a rehearsal that he finds out that she can sing and is actually really good. The rehearsal itself though does not go well. Between the bar almost burning down, people projectile vomiting everywhere and outlaw bikers charging the place looking for a fight you would think that not much more could go wrong for Joey – you would be wrong.

Delilah has taken off to Vegas and now its Joey’s job to get her back while still trying to make her a star. Only problem is in the process of trying to find her Joey ends up getting on more peoples hit lists. From gangsters to dwarfs he really isn’t having much luck. When push comes to shove he will have to call in every favour he has to get a proper band together and Delilah back home ready to perform. The more time he spends with her the more he starts to like her and soon wants to make her a star in her own right and not just because he owes her father. He soon learns that some things are better to be truthful about and when he learns the true meaning of honesty he might just get something even better than just getting off a hit list. Having a life of his own with someone to truly care about.

Joey was such a fun and quirky character to read that once I started I just didn’t want to put this book down. The rest of the characters all seemed to work well together in this wild mix of weirdness. The scenes in Vegas were just hilarious, I mean where else would a charging elephant come to the rescue to take you away to safety? A great read that will have you laughing throughout thinking about what else could go wrong for Joey and just how he is going to get himself out of the situations he finds himself in.

I received this ARC from Be My Book Boyfriend for my honest review.

Chuck Freadhoff has spent more than forty years writing and telling stories. He started his career as a journalist and covered homicides, assassination attempts, historic events such as the return of the American hostages from Iran. Once he spent ten hours in an operating room witnessing brain surgery. Along the way, he picked up a sharp eye for detail and keen understanding of how to tell a story – write tight, stay out of your own way and don’t bury the lead. One thing he loves most about writing is the research – visiting the L.A. County Jail was almost as interesting as cruising Tijuana’s red light district at night. You can’t fake it.
