Review: The Secret

The Secret The Secret by Christie Ridgway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on behalf of Book Addict.live,
The secret is in some ways an unusual book. We have the Archer household in which we have Ethan a single father who had lost the love of his life 4 years ago. Michelle is kept alive with pictures everywhere. Including keeping her memory alive for her son.
Into to family a year before came Charlie a butler who has taken over running of the household, and looking after Wells when his father is at work. In that time Charlie has fallen for Ethan and Wells even though she tries to keep things professional. To men of the house she is part of the family.
This is an entertaining read set in the Billionaires Beach Books Series, but can all be read as standalone. We do meet some of her friends who graduated for a European Butler School but as this is my first read in this series and the only thing it makes me want go back and read the rest of the series. I enjoyed the relationships between the couple and the son. A great happy ending.

Review: In the Beginning

In the Beginning In the Beginning by B.C.E.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Reviewed on behalf Book Addict.live,
WOW I don’t know what to say about this book, In the Beginning is about the beginning of the human race as we know it. If you love science fiction and all the old ancient stories of God, Greek, Egypt, epic fables of Zeus Olympians waging war on the Titans then this is the book for you.
I don’t want to spoil this for anyone, but I loved it and it kept me gripped until the end. I loved the way the story flowed and explained how so of many of the great floods, Atlantis Lost continents dragons. Was Moses the first Sc-fi novelist? This has gone the alien interference route. This kept me glued to my kindle reading through the night. I love all mythical stories as well as Science Fiction, so this book was a real treat. The only problem for me when I got to the end. I wanted to carry on reading, so when is the next book coming out?

Review: Clam Jam

Clam Jam Clam Jam by R.C. Boldt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After reading Blue Balls I just had to go back to the book before which was Clam Jam.
So I decided to go for the Audio Edition, and enjoyed the story of Maggie and Ry.
Maggie has broken up with her long time boyfriend after he cheated on her.
So when Ry who has noticed who has been watching Maggie in coffee shop,
and jumps when he hears Maggie needs a roommate.
When he meets her officially he realises the only way to become the roommate is to say he is gay and Jack from BlueBalls is his boyfriend.
What follows is comedy of errors as Ry has to stop Maggie from dating while he gets enough courage to come clean.
Jeremy York has a great voice for narrating , and enjoyed the fun of Maggie and Ryland falling in love over the year.

Review: Mr. Prescott: An Older Man Romance

Mr. Prescott: An Older Man Romance Mr. Prescott: An Older Man Romance by Carlos Dash
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was reviewed on behalf of Book Addict.live,
This is described as an Older Man Romance, it seems to be quite the thing at the moment. This is not what I thought it would be. I found a very sweet love story with lots of sex added in. This is first Carlos Dash book I’ve read and won’t be the last.
This book was exactly as described by Carlo Dash “If you enjoy happy endings and steamy tales about couples falling in love quickly my stories are for you".
This is a bit of unusual story when the youngest hottest Mayor of London visits New York who happens to go into a book shop and finds the love of his live. At first he can’t believe he should see her again because she is only 21 and he is 38.
What starts a fling soon feels much more, and a man of 38 would know when something feels different. Nathan thinks to wine and dine and that’s it. Love and lust quickly arrives and before we know its love. The only thing I found unconvincing is having an attractive Mayor of London, being a brit that was the hardest thing to believe. Lol
If you want a quick read with insta love and some good sex then this is for you.

Review: Grind

Grind Grind by Sybil Bartel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on behalf of Book Addict live,
Wow what an adventure, Dane is definitely a man of few words.
At the beginning we have an ice cold Hitman that arrives home to find the beautiful Irina taking refuge in his home.
Irina is on the run from a Russia Mobster husband.
This starts an adventure calling in some of his ex-Military colleagues to take on half the Russia Mobsters.
Nothing goes to plan as Dane and Irina learn to love each other.
The sex is hot between them, but they had go through so much before they reach HEA.
There is plenty of action in and out of the bedroom.
That’s all from me if you want to know more you will have to buy your own.

Review: Stolen Wish

Stolen Wish Stolen Wish by Jennifer Blackstream
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on Behalf of Book Addict live,
Stolen Wish is a story is a Blood Realm Novel, and the first story I have read from this series and it won’t be the last. The story was based on Ali Baba and the 40 thieves. Ali is a thief that always crossing paths with a beautiful thief Anara. Ali had discovered she was a princess, but couldn’t help following to make sure she got home safe. Princess Anara is a Caspian, a special breed of tiger shifter created by the Goddess herself.
The Princess only steals items that came from the Goddess and returns them home. What she doesn’t know is evil is watching and needs the Princess to enter Blood realm. This is a great adventure with magic and Mayhem and the lowly man wins the heart of the Princess with his love and valour. I loved it and enjoyed every minute. I now have to read the series as I am hooked.

Review: Trashy Foreplay

Trashy Foreplay Trashy Foreplay by Gemma James
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on behalf of Book Addict live,
This book was like nothing I was expecting. I suppose the title led me to believe it would be insta lust and nonstop sex. We had the instant connection, but not the sex. Instead we have a picture into Cash and Jules lives and minds. There is a lot more going on with Monica the cheating wife, we see a cold broken women who is as unhappy as Cash.
It takes nearly the whole book to get to the sex, but the build-up made it all the better. So it was a quick read with plenty of characters to build the tension. Cash and Jules were great together the chemistry was intense. Then when I got to the end and realised this is book one and we will have wait for Trashy Conquests. I am now in mourning waiting to see what happens next.

Review: BLUE BALLS

BLUE BALLS BLUE BALLS by R.C. Boldt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed for Book Addict.live,
BLUE BALLS
Truth:
A painful conditional caused by prolonged state of sexual arousal without release.
Myth: Only affects males.


Blue balls as you can guess is a romantic comedy,
And the male Jack the hunky nerd is the one that mostly suffers from blue balls. Jack is a great guy, who on meeting his best friend’s fiancĂ©e’s friend Sarah who has caused this poor guy’s suffering. Sarah and Jack take nearly 80 per cent of the book trying to complete the whole sexual act.
If you enjoy a funny but slower story getting to know each properly rather than an insta love. This is the book for you. I read a wide assortment of books and I was in the mood to enjoy reading about Jack and Sarah get their HEA, with titters on reading certain scenes. I must say I want a Jack without the blue balls. Although this is a standalone we meet Maggie and Ryland the couple from Clam Jam where we first meet Sarah and Jack as the best friends.

Review: Twisted Twosome

Twisted Twosome Twisted Twosome by Meghan Quinn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow I really loved this book, one minute tittering, laughing out loud while getting funny looks from my husband. Then to crown it all I end up crying out loud. I have to ask Meghan “what have you done to me you evil woman?”

The hero of the book is one of Tuckers workmates Racer. Racer has a lot of debt left over from his father’s medical loans, so he takes on extra work to help make his payments.
This is how he meets Georgiana Westbrook the rich girl who watches him while he fixes the family pool house. The first time they meet sparks fly with sarcasm and snark turning into to instant dislike. I loved how they played each other it was good fun hence my tittering and laughing in public.

It was a pleasure to read how the relationship between them grew while he refits the shop she has leased.

I think this is one of my favourite Meghan Quinn’s RomCom. I loved all the characters some from past books and some new. It made it a pleasure to read.

Review: The Edge of Us

The Edge of Us The Edge of Us by Veronica Larsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow this book pulled me through the ringer. We meet Mila, a strong independent woman who followed her well defined goals and dreams. These were qualities that made me immediately connect to her. We meet Andrew who works for Mila, and been a great support and become Mila’s best friend. Things seem to be changing between them, but alas I felt no real chemistry. love but not in love
If you really knew Mila, you would know she's not the kind of woman you claim. She's the kind of woman who claims you."

Then Cole enters the story, all we know is he left Mila at the Alter, and she hasn’t had a decent relationship since. It allowed Mila to direct all her passion and energy into her career. "It seems we can't ever get it right, chance and circumstance intent on keeping us apart. Intent on proving what we might feel for each other pales in comparison to situations that hamper our growth. As though all we're ever meant to do is miss each other. A cycle we can't break. A story without an end."

I was held enthralled by this novel, and it pulled me into the action and I couldn’t break free and found myself thinking about the characters and how they held me even when I finished reading. We find out there is a lot more going with Cole than we realise. I not saying anymore because you will have to read The Edge of Us to find out anymore.
