Flying Solo (Men of London, #6) Susan Mac Nicol

Flying Solo (Men of London #6)

Flight attendant Maxwell Lewis has spent years cultivating a bon vivant image only to find he finally wants something more—and that something more includes the never-does-repeats game designer Gibson Henry.


Maxwell Lewis is proud of the life he’s made. Having turned tragedy into triumph, he’s now a beloved member of a Target Airlines cabin crew with more than his fair share of attention both in the air and on the ground. But lately he’s wanted something more than the occasional hook-up or sometime sex buddy—particularly after meeting game designer and passenger Gibson Henry. 

Talented and driven, Gibson has built a company ready to be the next big thing in gaming. Devoted to his work, he takes onetime pleasures where he find them and never does repeats…which is what he tells handsome, sexy Maxwell Lewis after a little mile-high flight attendance. But a chance encounter in a London club is about to change things forever. Two men, one who’s flown solo and another who’s only ever played alone, are about to find that at some point all games come to end, it’s time to bare your heart and try for love.

There are certain qualities I tend to look for in a Susan Mac Nicol book. One of those, is  spunky, quick witted characters.
This book hit the nail on the head with that one!

Flying Solo was a rather quick and pleasant read. 
Hot and sexy as usual, but leave it to Susan to toss in an incredibly sweet and heartbreaking undertone. 
I was almost brought to tears at the tenderness in this story.
She knows just how to get me!!

I really fell for Maxwell. The way he kept his things around him and the longing he had. I don't want to say too much, but ugh... tugged at my heartstrings for sure!

I know I'm harping on the sweet and sad because that was a big part, but there was definitely also sarcasm, fun, flirting and oh so much hotness! 
I'll never look at a bottle of water the same way again!!! Thanks Susan!  

Awesome addition to the Men Of London Series!

Full Domain (Nice Guys #3) by Kindle Alexander

Full Domain (Nice Guys, #3)

Honor, integrity, and loyalty are how Deputy US Marshal Kreed Sinacola lives his life. A former SEAL now employed by the Special Operations Group of the US Marshal Service, Kreed spent most of his life working covert operations and avoiding relationships. Never one to mix business with pleasure, his boundaries blur and his convictions are put to the test when he finally comes face-to-face with the hot computer geek he’s been partnered with. Hell-bent on closing the ongoing case for his longtime friend, he pushes past his own limits and uncovers more than he expects.

Aaron Stuart strives for one thing: justice. Young and full of idealism, his highly sought after computer skills land him a position with the National Security Agency. Aaron’s biggest hazard at his job is cramped fingers, but all that changes when he is drawn into the middle of a dangerous federal investigation. Aaron gets more than he bargained for when the FBI partners him with a handsome and tempting deputy US marshal. His attraction to the inked up, dark-haired man provides another kind of threat altogether. Aaron tries desperately to place a firewall around his heart and fight his developing feelings, knowing one misstep on his part could ultimately destroy him. 

The solution isn’t as easy as solving the case, which is treacherous enough as it is. But the growing sexual attraction between them threatens to derail more than just Kreed’s personal convictions as he quickly learns temptation and matters of the heart rarely fit easily into the rules he’s lived by. Will Kreed be able to convince Aaron to open his heart and face the fact that sometimes the answers aren’t always hidden in code?

My Review

I loved him!
He was so big, cocky and strong, with an overbearing and commanding personality, but such a sweetheart!
He became a completely different person when it came to Aaron, so thoughtful and patient.
Did I mention 'sin'fully sexy and hot? That too!

This book was a little slow going in the beginning for me, lots of cop talk,  but then once it got going, it got going!!

I enjoyed the mysterious feel of the book and couldn't wait to find out 'who done it' and what exactly was going on! 
I also love the inclusion of the previous couples. 

Awesome end to the Nice Guys series.

The Baller: A Down and Dirty Football Novel by Vi Keeland

The Baller (Down and Dirty Football, #1)

From New York Times and USA Today Bestseller, Vi Keeland, comes a sexy new novel.

The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room.
It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster.
The famed quarterback decided to bare all. 
And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets. 
No. The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question. On camera. 
The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me.
When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me.
But I don’t date players. 
And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football. 
I’d date an athlete. 
It’s the other kind of player I don’t date. 
You know the type. Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid.

Brody Easton was the ultimate player.
Every woman wanted to be the one to change him.
But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for.
Turned out, I was that girl.
Simple right?
Let’s face it. It never is.
There’s a story between once upon a time and happily ever after… 
And this one is ours.

I love Vi's style of writing! 
Her characters have the qualities I look for in a person! 
They're witty, sarcastic and confident!

Brody is sexy, cocky and confident, but he's not an asshole!
As a matter of fact, there's an unbelievable sweetness to him that not even he realizes!!

I flew through this book! It was just that good!
I couldn't put it down, nor did I want to!

The back and forth between Brody and Delilah kept me on my toes and had me laughing hysterically! I loved their chemistry and naughty banter.

But don't be fooled. This hot, sexy charmer has a tender side to him.

There were also a couple of moments where I held my breath. 
You can say that again!

Witty, cocky... laugh out loud funny... mixed with a sweet underlying message of forgiveness, acceptance and love!!!

Appealed (The Legal Briefs Series, #3) by Emma Chase

Appealed (The Legal Briefs, #3)

When Brent Mason looks at Kennedy Randolph, he doesn’t see the awkward, sweet girl who grew up next door. He sees a self-assured, stunning woman…who wants to crush the most intimate - and prized - parts of his anatomy beneath the heels of her Christian Louboutins.

Brent has never let the loss of his leg in a childhood accident affect his ability to lead a fulfilling life. He sets high goals–and then he reaches them.

And now he has his sights set on Kennedy.
When Kennedy looks at Brent Mason, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue-worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell. 

She’s not a lovesick social outcast anymore - she’s a DC prosecutor with a long winning streak behind her. Brent is the opposing attorney in her next case and she thinks it’s time to put him through a little hell of his own. 

But things aren’t exactly working out that way. 

Because every fiery exchange has her wondering if he’s as passionate in the bedroom as he is in the courtroom. Each argument and objection only makes him want her more. In the end, Brent and Kennedy may just find themselves in love…or in contempt of court. 

APPEALED is a sexy, humorous romance about first crushes, second chances and the final verdict of the heart.

My Review

"we had to keep riding... because the ride was the only thing that made falling worth it."

I really enjoyed this flirty and sexy legal read!! This is actually my one and only read in the Legal Briefs series. (I know, I'm weird)

Brent and Kennedy have been friends their entire lives, best friends really, but grew apart and away from each other eventually.
When they're back in each other's lives, years later, the sparks fly. Fireworks to be exact!!

I loved this story. The chemistry between these two is electric. I love how she takes just as much as she dishes out and vise versa. These two were made for each other.
There's a couple hiccups along the way, but they find a way to make things work.

The story is fun, sweet, sexy and lighthearted.
I can't not mention the fact that he has a prosthetic leg and I love that fact!
What I mean is, some might consider a prosthetic leg an impairment, but it's not true at all. Brent proves that. He is the quintessential tall, dark and handsome, charming, confident as hell ladies-man! He is the definition of 'book boyfriend'!

Isadora (Masters Among Monsters #2) by Ella Frank

Isadora (Masters Among Monsters, #2)


Isadora Nikitas understands what it means to be betrayed. That lesson was taught to her in the prime of her life, and when she is offered a chance to exact revenge, she finds it difficult to refuse.
Instead, she entrusts her survival to a mysterious vampire known only as Diomêdês, a male who wants nothing in return but to watch over her—in every way imaginable.

Gifted with speed, strength, and immortality, she determines that her life will no longer be governed by the needs and wants of a mere man. She has cowered for the last time, and with her Ancient by her side, she thrives and blossoms into the most formidable female vampire in existence.

But, once upon a time, like all little girls, Isadora believed in love. She believed it because she once had it. So, when it comes along a second time, she knows that it’s possible—but when you love someone, they become your weakness. Unless, in fact, they become your enemy instead…


Fulfilling your life’s prophecy should be empowering. At least, that’s what Elias Fontana always believed. But, as he stands guard over the beautiful vampire he’s taken hostage, his convictions start to crumble. Made to believe by his creators that he and two others have been designed to destroy a dangerous race, he has difficulty connecting his current reality to the woman he once loved.


When friends become enemies and enemies become lovers, who can you trust in the webs of lies and despair? And, when your life is at stake and blood has been shed, how much are you willing to sacrifice to fulfill your destiny?

Isadora picks up right where Alasdair left off, but it's not the end.
No, this intricate web keeps on weaving and it tangles you up with it!!
More! I crave more!
I am salivating for Thanos and the finale to this trilogy!!!!

Vampires, Gods, Family, Lust, Chemistry....... Death.

Freaking loved!!!!!!!

In Alasdair we're introduced to pretty much every main character. Relationships are established, questions arise and interests are piqued.
In Isadora the story continues. Not only do we find out what has happened to her, but the characters from book 1 are all over this book as well.
Isadora is a gorgeous, tough as nails vampire. But what happened in her past? What shaped her into the woman she is today?
All I can tell you is.. bravo Ella Frank!

This world of vampires and gods is all Greek to me! <- hee hee
But I am so in love and so immersed in it that I want more. I need more!!!

This tale is erotic, depraved, voyeuristic, and sensual.
Along with all of that is a kind, and sweet love. There's tragedy and grief and there's also sarcasm and jokes!?

I love the relationships they have with each other and their close familial bond.

Ella continues to amaze me with how she keeps me on my toes craving more!

Warning: These books MUST be read in order!

The Score (Off-Campus #3) by Elle Kennedy

The Score (Off-Campus, #3)

He knows how to score, on and off the ice 

Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she's going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands. 

It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over 

Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoring…and shoot for love.

 I love the Off Campus series and it's hot men!
And Dean Di-Laurentis is no exception!

This story is funny, hot and oh so delicious.

I don't always like or fall for the 'player' type of guy, but although Dean is quite the ladies man, he isn't your typical player. He knows what he wants and he lays it all out there for everyone to see.
He's actually quite honest, caring and oh so charming.
Did I mention sexy? He's that too!

Allie is smart, funny and so not looking for a relationship after having recently broken up with her long-time boyfriend.
Unfortunately for her, these two have amazing chemistry.

I really loved how their friendship/relationship played out. It wasn't rushed and it wasn't insta-love. It worked and it worked well.

These two had me laughing out loud! Especially when it came to 'Winston'!!
In the same token,  you're also hit with some unexpected sadness that rounds out the story making it complete.

This was an easy going and entertaining read.

Abruption by Riley Mackenzie


Everyone has a plan.

Dr. Guy Hunter secures his dream fellowship with a beautiful free spirit by his side. Two unexpected blue lines don't even shake his resolve—he is on his way to having it all. Until he isn’t.

Abruption: a sudden breaking off

Jules Chiappetti loves her boisterous over-involved Italian family but is determined to pave her own way. An MBA and boardroom job is her ticket out. Until it isn’t. 

Abruption: an unexpected event

Four years later, Guy is consumed by the challenges of being a single father, still struggling with the aftermath that derailed his life and left his son with special needs. He doesn't realize his world went dark the same day his wife's did, until Jules, his son's new nurse, shows him the light.

My Review

I have been waiting for this book!!! 
I am in love with Riley Mackenzie's Grey's Anatomy-esque reads and this one hit the spot, just like Beautifully Awake did!!!

This story has it all, from the sexy and flirty to the oh so sad heartfelt emotions.

I laughed and I cried!
There's also a loud, food loving Italian family, which I am very familiar with and there's also a bit of a mysterious feel. There's secrets lurking and things you can't quite put your finger on until everything's revealed! 

Guy Hunter is a gorgeous, impressive doctor who's been dealt a pretty rough hand in life. Cue the tears.

He deals with it the best he can and sometimes it's not too kindly!
You instantly fall for him!

"Who loves ya?"

Jules is a sarcastic, headstrong nurse who you immediately want to be friends with! But she's hiding a secret, something that broke her heart and will break yours too.

Added bonus? The kids in the story will melt your heart, especially if you're a parent!

"There are no happy endings.
Endings are the saddest part, So just give me a happy middle
And a very happy start."
