Good Boy by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy

Hosting her brother’s wedding for an MVP guest list is the challenge of Jess Canning’s life. Already the family screw-up, she can’t afford to fail. And nobody (nobody!) can learn of the colossal mistake she made with the best man during a weak moment last spring. It was wrong, and there will not be a repeat. Absolutely not. Even if he is the sexiest thing on two legs.
Blake Riley sees the wedding as fate’s gift to him. Jess is the maid of honor and he’s the best man? Let the games begin. So what if he’s facing a little (fine, a lot) of resistance? He just needs to convince the stubborn blonde that he’s really a good boy with a bad rap. Luckily, every professional hockey player knows that you’ve got to make an effort if you want to score.
But Jess has more pressing issues to deal with than sexy-times with a giant man-child. Such as: Will the ceremony start on time, even though someone got grandma drunk? Does glitter ever belong at a wedding? And is it wrong to murder the best man?

Caution: May cause accidental aspiration of tea or coffee. Do not read in a public place where loud laughter is inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppy cuddling and a snarky pair of underwear

LOVED this book!

Blake is hilarious, sweet, nutty, silly, loving, gorgeous, and so on and so on!

We met the outrageous and boisterous Blake in Us... and I am so happy to have gotten his story. He is definitely a one-of-a-kind character.

This is his and Jessie's story and it will have you laughing out loud and shouting "cheezes" from here on out.

"Like in Romeo and Juliet, when she's all, a blowjob by any other name will still make you come."

Not only was this book funny throughout, but it had honest to goodness sweet and tender teary-eyed moments, as well as some pretty H.O.T. one!

There was car-sex, quirky humor, family, dogs, hockey players, hotties... the list goes on! It is a definite must read!

Egomaniac by Vi Keeland


The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated. Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent. I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place. I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind. I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages. The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing. And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

Egomaniac was a very enjoyable read. I went from laughing one minute to sniffling the next. 

Drew may be an egomaniac, but he can put his money where his mouth is. 
He's charming, charismatic, sexy as sin and adorable as can be.
Dirty-talker that he is, he's still a gentleman and a loving and caring man. Truly a great character!

Emerie was another awesomely written character. She is smart, beautiful, and quirky. 

I enjoyed the playfulness and flirty banter between Drew and Emerie. I honestly laughed out loud on more than one occasion.
There was also the perfect amount of sarcasm and steam... two qualities I look for in a great read!

Worth the Wait by Claudia Connor


The first in a spin off series of the New York Times Bestselling McKinney Brothers, WORTH THE WAIT takes readers on a journey through young love into adulthood in a heartwrenching, second chance love story.

Nick Walker thought nothing could destroy what he had with Mia. He certainly never thought he would be the one to destroy it.

Now ten years later, Mia James is in Special Agent Nick Walker’s path once again and this time he’s determined to shed the weight of regret and finally claim the future that was always meant to be theirs.

It won’t be easy. Mia’s heart was shattered by Nick and now, just when she’d pieced it back together, it’s been broken again, bringing their past to the surface, including her own secret about that day everything went wrong.

***Every title by Claudia Connor is a Contemporary Romance and a full stand alone novel. No cheating, no love triangle, no cliff hanger.

My Review

Grief. Guilt. Loss. Love. Regret. 

Nate and Mia's story encompasses all of that and more.
Told in both past and present, I enjoyed the flashbacks into their younger years very much, the meat and potatoes of the story, if you will.
You see Nick's pain and struggles to raise his younger brothers and sister, you feel them in your gut, and you finally understand.

I must say though, I feel there was a missing chapter that was needed to connect the past Nick and Mia to the present Nick and Mia. Although you know how still so much in love they are with the other, their "reconnecting" was too instantaneous for me. After so many years apart and the way they left things, I needed more. 

Regardless of my feelings on that, I enjoyed this story very much.
If you're a fan of this series, there's a little bit of everything here for you. Not only do you finally get Nick and Mia's story, which brought me to tears more than once, but you get a little more about young Hannah, more Matt and Abby, and a little dangling carrot on Luke... perhaps Zach as well?  

Looking forward to the next book already!
