Release Blitz: ‘Dirty Flirty Enemy’ by Piper Rayne

Title: Dirty Flirty Enemy

Series: White Collar Brothers Book 2

Genre: Romantic Comedy / Contemporary Romance

Release Day: 16 July 2019

 

Blurb:

He’s the arrogant Manhattan realtor with billboards advertising his six-pack more than his expertise in negotiations.

I’m the competing broker who stupidly moved across the hall from his office.

From day one, I’ve been his sworn enemy. Okay, so I might have accidentally stolen one of his clients. Well, is it stealing if the client comes to me?

Even our vicious banter and loathing gazes can’t hide the chemistry between us. Who can blame me? He has enough charisma to make every hot-blooded woman in the city melt with a single word.

Just when I think a mutual respect could be born between us, the biggest developer in the city offers us an opportunity that pits us against each other.

Time to forget Carmelo Mancini’s dreamy eyes and tight abs.

Game on.

Get frisky with the sizzling new standalone romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!

Noah Hathaway is infuriatingly hot, annoyingly charming… and my new room-mate?! This pet-sitting gig was supposed to be a vacation from drama, but that was before the hunky guy in the pool-house started sticking his nose (and his annoyingly chiseled abs) in my business.

I’m looking for Mr. Right, not Mr. Most Likely to Sneak Out of Bed (And Steal Your Breakfast Pop Tart On the Way Out the Door), so despite the red-hot sparks between us, I’m determined to stay away. But when one little party gets way out of hand, we’re suddenly both on the wrong side of trouble. Unless we can come up with ten thousand dollars in the next three weeks, we’re screwed. And not just when it comes to the adorable pooches.

With the clock ticking, we have no choice but to team up and embark on a madcap scheme to save our asses – with the help of a few furry friends. But with the chemistry between us reading Defcon-69, can I keep my hands (and heart) to myself? Or will this pup-tastic scheme leave us both in the doghouse?

Find out in the latest hot and hilarious rom-com from “the queen of romantic comedy”, Lila Monroe!

Review:

Goes down as another off my 2019 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A book from a series you love. That being the Chick Flick Club one! Really anything by Lila Monroe I find great; just fun, flirty, romantic comedy style reads that always entertain.

Now with the other two books I had seen the films the concepts are loosely based on so I had a feel for the direction they might take but not this one so was taken on a new fun journey. Let’s see what trouble our animal loving / true love believer Eve can get up to when she meets the delectable Noah. All she’s looking for is a guy to give her love, affection, and sizzling hot sex. Not too much to ask for, right? A dating app match leads to drinks at a bar with a handsome stranger, though is she talking to the right bloke? Wrong one now but right in the end I’m thinking!

Eve works at an animal shelter, which she loves, as she is very much a dog lover and can’t understand people who aren’t. As a side job she also does dog walking and house sitting so it’s her lucky day when a friend of her boss comes into the shelter asking if there is anyone free to house sit and look after her two pugs for a month. The fact her living arrangements are a bit strange in that she lives at an unofficial sorority house with slobby, horny roommates, you aren’t surprised with how quick she says she can do it. Dream job looking after the dogs but throw in practically a mansion and she’s loving it.

Spanner in the works from the get go when she finds out that her ‘not-Kyle’ date Noah just happens to be staying in the pool house while his place is being fumigated. Now Noah likes to push buttons and after first meeting Eve, and well pretending to be her date, I think he’s going to like continuing that. Sparks flying, chemistry follows, and annoyance in equal measures from both. He is one fine looking man who seems to be adverse to shirts – muscles to dream about, something she might start doing. Small world hey!

So Noah is a social media-marketing guru trying to branch out on his own and build a portfolio for his brand. This doesn’t stop him from wanting to kick back when the need strikes. Starting with a house party, even though he isn’t meant to be using that as well – much to Eve’s annoyance. It’s all fun and games until something breaks. Crystal chickens cost more than you’d think! His carefree attitude is about to change sharpish. Can they band together to fix it or find the money to replace? Ideas time needed, and it appears dogs are the key. Anyone want a Dog for a Day? Have to keep it a secret though!

“You’ve got the dogs, I’ve got the charm … together, we’re going to run this town.”
“Oh boy,”
 Eve sighs, shaking her head. “I’m going to regret this, aren’t I?” Totally saying that with a smile on her face.

Tricky situation aside Eve still finds herself going on more disaster dates in her search for ‘the one’. Could he be closer than she thinks – pool house perhaps? Noah might be keeping his cards close to his chest but he wants her just as badly. Mostly when he gets her to rant and rave, gets him thinking of what else they could be doing for her get her that reaction.

The spark we are waiting for comes in an unlikely place – her mothers’ surprise wedding he insists on going with her to. Wine and protective defensive talk leads to Eve thinking of rom-com moments and wishing she were living one. To hell with it girl and kiss him senseless! Hot fire from the moment their lips meet and the first OMG ‘O’ moment. It’s not just a physical connection as they have fun together too – cake tasting for two anyone? May not have been for them but in their defense they were hungry. Such an easy chemistry between them and no stress, well to start with anyway. The more intimate they get – both in and out of the bedroom – the quicker they start to fall. With the secret site getting more attention they have to tread carefully before it blows up in their faces and certain people find out. Cracks begin to appear as tensions rise with tempers following. When an opportunity puts a spanner in the works will they follow head or heart to get what they really want?

Loved all the little ‘in jokes’ they have with each other. Noah might not believe in romance or ‘the one’ but after spending time with Eve he does start to see the merit of it. Also love the fiery connection they had with each other, smoking from the first kiss, couldn’t keep their hands off each other. The fact there’s dogs throughout too makes everything better!

Loved all the cameos with characters from the other books and how all the series interlink with each other. Side characters from one end up being leads in others, one great series to the next. Got another snippet of Poppy again, Noah’s sister, can’t wait to read her story next. Romance guru for others but can she find it for herself?

Synopsis:

Arthur ‘Fitz’ Fitzwilliam is the hottest, most reckless playboy in town… and my new husband?!

Believe me, I never dreamed that I’d be walking down the aisle to a quickie marriage with a total stranger, but thanks to my eccentric god-mother, an iron-clad will, and a blind, three-legged cat called Alfred (don’t ask), I need to get hitched ASAP. And when the perfect candidate leaves me at the alter, there’s only one person crazy – and drunk – enough to step up at the last minute.

The best man.

Also known as the man most likely to get caught romping with three Rockettes in the back of a Sex and the City tourbus. The man who could melt my panties at twenty paces – and make me want to pour a bucket of ice-water over his head. The man I just pledged to love and honor and… oh god, WHAT HAVE I DONE?!

Our arrangement was clear: keep up the charade long enough for me to claim my inheritance and send my slime-ball cousins packing. Our plan is working perfectly.

Then Fitz decides to change the rules….

Can this fake marriage turn into something real? Find out in the latest hot and hilarious romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe

Review:

Goes down as another off my 2019 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – The last book in a series. That one being the fabulous Billionaire Bachelors one, I may have to do a re-read soon.

Becca needs a husband ASAP – as in that day – to be able to claim an inheritance in the form of the building her and her artistic friends live. The terms were that the building would be left to her and her “husband”, well she was engaged before but sounds like that went tits up so she’s in a bit of a bind. Marigold, the eccentric lady who owned the building, thought she was doing something nice by leaving it to Becca so that everyone would be ok but it seems to have put her in a tailspin. If she can’t get married the house will pass to Marigold’s nephew Brett, who she can see making everyone leave so the building can get turned into condos for millionaires, well that’s her guess anyway. She knows he is willing to play dirty so she needs to think big to get what she needs for everyone.

So she hires Olivia to find her a husband for a month, after that’s all squared away and the building is hers they can divorce. Thing is because its a rush job Scott isn’t really up to the challenge, so lets see if the best man can step in. Hello Fitz, seems Olivia is getting you on her books afterall. Is the bachelor playboy about to go off the market? Her 106page contract from Olivia is about to get signed, “Do you have a pen?” After hearing her story when he sees her after the failed wedding in a bar it seems he wants to help out. What’s the worst that could happen?

“That’s it?” I blink. “You’re willing to marry a total stranger because, what, you’re bored?”
“Seems a good enough reason to me.” Fitz offers me his hand. “Clock’s ticking, princess. What’ll it be?” Well the British accent usually turns heads and the fact he’s hot doesn’t hurt either.

When Olivia finds out that Fitz has taken on the role of fake hubby she is a little concerned. She knows what is riding on Becca getting the building to keep everyone at home. She doesn’t need to be messed about or it made into a joke – something Fitz likes doing, jokes and having fun. She also wants him to be clear in the whole fakeness of his marriage. Don’t blur the lines between fake and real. But who will start to feel more emotions first? Chemistry rising is sure to happen but at what speed?

Strangers connecting quickly, which is good, as they need to appear as the perfect head over heels whirlwind romance couple as possible. One connection being that they both seem to really like Alex Chase books. Umm… I wonder who writes them? Connecting aside they need to really convince Brett their for real or it’s game over. After dropping the bombshell on him that she’s hitched so can inherit he insists on meeting the new husband. Dinner date from hell commencing in five, four, three, well you get the gist. Stories evolving from each of them to make the others head boil but in a very funny way. All leading to the first ‘fake’ kiss but as these stories go that first one is always the key because the whole ‘fake’ part goes right out the window the moment their lips meet. Hello hotness how far are you going? Her contract says no touching but creative talking on a phone doesn’t count, right? Interesting start with how quick off the mark they both were with creative words.

Fitz needs to help sell the happy marriage and what better way than moving in. Close spaces plus sexual tension rising equals a lot of fun in the making. Her friends are all for her jumping her husband, is she going to do it? From the tension building you know it won’t be long. All that aside can we just note how romantic he can be – from bowling to a night helicopter flight over the city – well and silly too in the best way. You can see how their lust is sure to keep building. Is it going to be the start of something or a complication to deal with later? A little trip to England gets them closer still. Starts as a means to meet his parents now the cats out the bag with the whole marriage – man are they hard to please. Good job they have ways to distract each other when tensions start to rise. Holy hell they hot together. Shame Brett finds a way to freeze them over.

Feelings growing stronger with each moment together so it just hurts so much more when things fall apart. Can Fitz fix the mess they’re in? ‘Fake’ turn real, what can you trust and where do you want to go from here? These are the questions running through both their heads. Lets see if they come up with the same answers.

Side note: I just loved all the artistic people from her building, all a bit eccentric characters themselves too. A home for all that turned into somewhat of a family. Can she save their home?

Another fun filled sexy read with loads of heated passion and amusement. End to a series but start of another with spin off for Becca’s friend Poppy. Can’t wait to check out her story next.

Release Blitz: ‘Hot Mess’ by R. Linda

Title: Hot Mess
Series: Messy Love #1
Author: R. Linda
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 27, 2019
Blurb

There’s always that one girl who has all these dreams, yet she can’t reach them because she’s constantly tripping over her own two feet.

That’s me. I’m that girl. The unorganized, chaotic, hot mess.

I’m the struggling artist who refuses to give up my love for pizza just because society constantly shoves thin, perfectly toned bodies in my face saying that’s what women are supposed to look like.

Oh, and I’m filthy rich. On paper anyway. I can’t touch my trust fund just yet, so to get those nasty debt-collectors off my back I rent out the snazzy mansion my parents left me.

Of course it has to be Tate Montgomery who moves in—the super sexy celebrity with three million, five hundred and twenty-six followers on Instagram. And of course I have to be the paint-covered walking disaster who falls for said famous tenant.

The problem? Tate and I, we’re not compatible…at all. He’s arrogant. I’m stubborn. It’s a train wreck waiting to happen.

Yet, I end up kissing him anyway.

Told you I was a mess.

Release Blitz: ‘Fix Me Up, Cowboy’ by Stina Lindenblatt

Title: Fix Me Up, Cowboy
Series: Copper Creek #3
Author: Stina Lindenblatt
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 9, 2019

 

Blurb

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the sexiest cowboy of them all…

As a Beverly Hills princess, I prefer Egyptian sheets, designer labels, and shopping on Rodeo Drive.

Cleaning stables? Definitely not my thing.

After my great-aunt dies, I volunteer to go to Copper Creek, Montana to tie up loose ends and put the house she willed me on the market.

The last thing I expect to find is irritating, yet sexier-than-sin Noah Daniels.

***

Nine years ago, I left town only to return with a broken heart, a love for restoring vintage cars, and the plan to never leave Copper Creek again.

When hotter-than-hell Kate Snow decides to fix up her great-aunt’s house, turning down her offer isn’t an option. She needs the extra hands so she can meet her deadline.

And I need the extra cash.

But the job comes with additional perks: Hanging out with Kate. Teaching her about horses.

The mind-blowing sex with her.

What I haven’t planned on is for my heart to be a willing part of the deal—a deal that could result in Kate landing her dream job. In Beverly Hills.
