FAMED by Magan Vernon: On the heels of Mary James leaked sex tape - totally a fake one to make her boyfriend jealous she might add- she needs some PR help if she ever wants her acting career to end up in a fiery hell like her love life. Chris Garcia has been working his way up from mail room clerk to junior associate at Tate & Cane and now to get to the next rung of the corporate ladder he has to take on the firm's toughest client: Mary James. With a little help from a nosey Aunt Rosita and Mama Garcia, the two decide the best way to move forward is simple: a fake relationship. But what happens when something fake gets to be too real and FAME gets involved?    

        


One-Night Stand-In - T. Gephart Sarah Madison loved working at Tate & Cane Enterprises. While she looked and, for the most part, acted conservatively—she was a gladiator in the boardroom. The fast-paced, energetic work environment not only fed her need for corporate blood but also allowed her to work for one of her role models, Olivia Cane—living proof a woman really can have it all. And after months of paying her dues, she was finally offered the promotion she’d been vying for. Which was great, except for the fact she had to share the position with a new guy they brought in especially for the role. Kyle Drake was smart, experienced, and probably just as good, if not better, in negotiations. And if she wasn’t careful, prove he could do the job without her. Add in good-looking and an incredibly sexy smooth talker, and everyone in the office either wanted to be him or sleep with him. Which Sarah could have totally ignored if he hadn’t been the stranger she’d married in Vegas during a fake ceremony six months earlier. He was supposed to be her one-night stand, a stand-in for a ceremony that wasn’t even legally binding. They were never even going to see each other again. Hell, she apparently hadn’t even known his real last name at the time. It was the only time she’d ever done something completely reckless and spontaneous. It figured that one time would come back and bite her where it hurt.  

Review by: Gina

This story is GOLD!!! Pure GOLD!!! I loved the take on the not so traditional wedding in Vegas! It was a fun and different way to start a Vegas Wedding story. Kylie and Sarah are forced to work together on a project and I loved the funny banter and sexual tension between the two! It made the book hard to put down. The story was well written with amazing characters! The only negative...it was too short!!! I would have loved to have more but it was fantastic! If you want a quick, funny, and yet steamy read pick up One Night Stand In!!!!

THE RUN IN – KELLY ELLIOTT Becoming the new Marketing Manager at Tate and Cane was a game changer. I was hell bent on proving I deserved this job, and that it wasn’t my cousin Sterling Quinn who had helped me score the new job title. Him being one of the CEO’s best friend—didn’t help the rumors. Well screw that. Ten years of sweat and hard work was the reason I was sitting in a large corner office with a killer Manhattan view. More focused than I’d ever been, it was time to take the bull by the horns. And God help the person who stood in in my way. ******** Things I left behind in Seattle, Washington: A promising career at a top marking firm, the past I was desperate to escape, and obviously my sense of direction. It was because of all of those reasons I was standing in the middle of New York City lost and cursing at my phone. If I didn’t get to Tate and Cane soon, I wouldn’t only be late, but also blow the chance to make the good impression on my new boss, Mason Quinn. And I needed that more than anything. One wrong turn, an unfortunate collision, and an expensive suit drenched in my soy chia tea latte was not how I wanted to start my first day. Then there was the other little problem I had. The drop dead gorgeous man whose suit I’d ruined was my new boss. And boy did he look pissed.  

Review by: Sam 

For all new readers of Kelly Elliott, this brand new Novella 'The RunIn' in my opinion is the perfect way to get a taste for the talented authors addictive writing, those cocky, hotter than hell hero's and those gorgeous, sassy heroines. 

From Mason and Saylor's first meet... which includes one steaming hot drink, a whole lot of attitude and an awkward following scene, I was laughing so hard and super excited to climb into the rest of this fictional creation.
I loved the banter between both characters and the tension which continuously built throughout the entire short read, making this Novella one helluva slow-burn. The chemistry and connection between Mason and Saylor was both fun and at times incredibly hot. 

I really connected to Saylor and loved the way she had been written. I admired her independence, her passion and drive.
At times, Mason seriously deserved a punch to the throat. But it didn't stop me feeling something for his character. I laughed at his thoughts, and for any reader who loves a male hero with a really naughty mouth, well, Mason is your guy! 

I don't want to spoil the Novella, but can honestly tell any reader who likes a slow-burn read, or Office romance, this book is definitely for you. I devoured the book super fast and look forward to reading all other additions to the Imperfect Love World.

TIED BY KIM KARR I was rich, single, and connected, which meant a steady diet of beautiful women wherever I went. I really did think I had the perfect life. Until I went and married a supermodel I’d just met, and everything changed. Of course there were choices. But the word annulment meant giving her up, and I never give up anything. Still, I was a bachelor at heart, and having a wife, well, I didn’t really know what to do with that. After only forty-eight hours of marriage, I had already gone and screwed everything up. Now I have thirty days to prove to my new wife that I’m husband material. There’s only one problem—I don’t even know what husband material means. However, I’m certain that won’t stop me from excelling at it. My wife tells me it isn’t going to be easy. That I have numerous issues to overcome. First, there’s my jealousy. It needs to be tamed. Did I flip over the fact that her latest picture was causing men around the world to do dirty things all over the covers she graced? Hell, yes. I couldn’t help myself though. When her photo went viral, my caveman instincts kicked in, and I demanded she quit her job and stay home—barefoot and pregnant in my kitchen. I can work on that, right? Then there’s my mother. I need to convince her that my new wife is not the money hungry floozy she called her. Did my mother actually call her that? Yes. I can’t help it that my mother wants me to get rid of my new wife. The problem is what my mother wants, she always gets one way or another. Still, turning my mother’s opinion around can’t be that hard, can it? There are many other issues, but according to my new wife, those are minor compared to the biggest one—she says I will never be able to accept being tied down. Don’t worry—I got this one. I intend to prove to her in no uncertain terms that being tied up, down, or horizontal is just what this Upper East Sider needs.    

Review by: Tatia 

A whirlwind romance. Not so much love at first sight as it was lust at first sight. An instant connection. One that went completely wrong just as quick as it happened. One night in Vegas changed everything. Now James had to prove to Lindsay that he has what it takes.

This was a great quick read. I've missed Kim Karr and this was the perfect taste of her writing to hold me over until we get more from her. It was everything we love about her stories; tangible energy, sexiness is vast amounts, and the ultimate connection between two characters. Kim Karr never disappoints.

Review by: Gina 

This book is jam packed with a whole lot of hotness!!! If you like insta love stories, this is the perfect book! It is fast paced, well written, and has a hero that will make you swoon! He is suppose to be this playboy but he turned out to be pretty sweet. While this was an insta love story and I am ok with that, this was an insta, insta love story. It made it hard, for me, to feel the connection. Then that sort of set the tone for the book. I love this author's book and look forward to what she does next.

Battle of the Sexes Adriana Locke Carver Jones’ partner at Jones + Gallum had to step down for medical reasons. He’s absolutely devastated. He swears. Just ignore his cheeky grin, okay? When word reaches his fancy corner office that Gallum is replacing himself with his daughter, Amity, Carver is ecstatic. For real this time. Jones squashes men in the business industry flat. A woman? Pfst. He’ll be completely in charge in no time, doing whatever he wants. He’s so ready for this. But is he ready to fight the hardest fight of his life? No, not the one to maintain control of his company. The one to keep control of his heart. The battle may begin in the boardroom, but the war will definitely be won in the bedroom. May the best sex win.     

Review by: Flavia


I have to say Adriana Locke's books are totally worth it. This one was no exception

Hot, Sexy, Steamy and so good.
This is a friends to enemies then to lovers office romance all in one. Carver is finally where he needs to be in his life. He is so close to being the CEO of his father's company. So now that his father's partner is retiring he knows he is next in line. However his dad's partner has nominated his daughter to be CEO. So now he has to fight for the job that is always meant to be his. And not just that, his competition is a bookworm who according to him knows nothing about the company.

Amity is finally back home, and she is going to be the CEO of his dad's company. Only one obstacle in her way and that is Carver Jones. Carver Jones is the most cockiest arrogant person she has ever met. And she will not let him stand in her way to get what she wants.

But Amity and Carver have a history and they can't deny their attraction to each other. So in the end who will be the winner of this battle to be the next CEO

Like I Said, Hot, Sexy, Steamy and so freaking good.

Review by: Gina 

This was a fun, quick read! I loved the idea of these two characters battling it out for the CEO position and for the fact they have know each other all their lives made it more fun. They had a certain undeniable attraction towards each other that made for some fun dialogue. I wished the story would have played with the "battle of the sexes" theme more. There could have been more jabs taken at each other and might of heighted the chemistry between the two. Overall, it was a great book to read. It was well written and had a playful, yet sexy, storyline. I would recommend this book for someone who wants a quick, fun and spicy read!

UNSUPERVISED by Cora Kenborn Niall A non-existent love life, unstable paycheck, and a six-year-old who’d rather hit boys than books sound more like a cry for help than a dating profile. On paper, it would seem like I need a life coach, but I’ve managed to get a decent grip on the single-dad thing. My love life, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. With my sexy Irish accent, I should have women of all ages losing their minds, but I seem to attract only a certain type—crazy. The last thing I want is a new relationship, but I need a date for my company’s charity function. A chance meeting with a tall, leggy blonde who looks like she could use a night out is the perfect solution. Beautiful, sane, and she has a kid? We have a winner. I didn’t count on Laken being unforgettable. Unlike all the other fake women I’ve met in this city, she’s real. And if there’s one thing I value more than anything, it’s honesty. Laken I didn’t bust my ass in college to be a nanny. Unfortunately, a 4.0 GPA and sucking up to the owner’s sister did nothing to secure a coveted Tate & Cane Enterprises internship. I’m not proud of being a nanny-for-hire to get my foot in the door, but my wealthy socialite employer has the ears of company executives. Swallowing my pride, I do what I need to—until an afternoon at the park changes everything. I don’t mean to let him think Preston is my kid, but he just assumes. This isn’t me. I’m not a liar. Although his panty-melting accent does unspeakable things to me, I should set the record straight. There’s only one problem. Niall is a freelance photographer for Tate & Cane and invites me to a company event as his plus-one. He’s my “in.” If I can hold on to this charade long enough, I can get the job and the man of my dreams. I’m winging this completely unsupervised. Game on.  

 


TWISTED by Mandi Beck ​Three friends walk into a bar . . . One walks out the fake girlfriend of a hot, bearded Scotsman. Fannin McGuire is up for promotion at Tate and Cane Enterprises, but first she has to make it through her stepsister’s wedding. To Fannin’s ex. Yep. Her ex-fiancé is about to be her new brother-in-law. One big happy family. And lucky her, she also gets to work with him. While Fannin is putting all of her energy into her career, her ex is putting all of his energy into making her life hell. Just when Fannin is sure she’ll be attending the wedding without a plus one, in walks Jasper James to save the day. He’s the bartender at the Iron Flask, the account she’s trying to land, and everything she didn’t know she needed or wanted. Before Fannin knows what’s happening, Jasper is playing knight in shining armor and she likes it. And him. A lot. With his smooth Scottish accent, ridiculously good looks, and that beard? She doesn’t stand a chance. Jasper isn’t in the habit of rescuing anyone. But when Fannin is confronted by her ex about her lack of a date for his upcoming nuptials, Jasper can’t help but step in. Her wild hair, violet eyes, and killer legs have him doing a few things he normally wouldn’t. Never mind that he shouldn’t be getting involved with the woman in charge of making the bar a global success. Their fake relationship becomes more real than either thought it would. Now they’re at the mercy of their feelings when truths are twisted, and the lies don’t taste as smooth as the whisky.  

Review by: Tatia 

Why are the best books always short? I need more of everyone in Twisted. Jasper and Fannin are some of my favorite characters. A relationship that started out nontraditionally.
Fannin didn't know Jasper from anyone other stranger in the room. So when he randomly decides to volunteer to be her date for the most dreaded wedding of the century, it completely shocks her. Who would say no to an insanely sexy Scottish lad?
Jasper can't take his eyes off of her. He doesn't know her but he wants to. What provoked him to take her to a wedding is beyond him. He's not backing out though. He never expected the feelings that grew from it though. Fannin is like no other woman he's ever met.
I soaked up every word. I couldn't get enough. Now I just have to figure what kind of bribery works best with Mandi Beck. I'll do whatever it takes to get more Jasper!!

CHEEKY by Natasha Madison ​​​Bradley Fitch has it all. A suave job, a gigantic trust fund, and an accent that makes panties drop faster than the speed of light. His new life in New York City is fast-paced and furious, but it's nothing a little getaway can't cure. What says party and unwind like Las Vegas? Nothing. Plus, whatever happens there has to stay there. When his best friend bails, he finds himself sitting on the plane next to his best friend's sister. She’s off-limits—proverbial caution tape wrapped around her body. Of course, she’s also totally ball busting gorgeous. Lexi Quinn fell in love with Bradley at eight years old and then vowed to kill him at eight and a half. What was supposed to be a romantic week away is turning into a nightmare. Her ex is actually married, her luggage is lost, and her reservation is cancelled. And she's sitting next to the man she swore to hate forever One week. No strings attached. What is the worst that could happen? It's all fun and games till this British bad boy gives new meaning to BBC and becomes a little bit too cheeky.​​    

Review by: Tatia 

One of those stories that you can't get enough of, Cheeky is definitely one of them. No matter what she writes, whether it's a full length story or novella, she creates it perfectly. As short as it was, I was left feeling as though I got the entire story. It felt complete. The beginning, middle, and end fit so perfectly together that I never felt as though it was rushed or that anything was missing.
Lexi and Bradley have known each other since they were kids. Bradley is her brother's best friend. So naturally, she's always had a crush on him. So imagine their surprise when they both end up on a plane to Vegas. Both by themselves. What's next to come can only be described as an epic disaster. Or maybe it was just fate stepping in.
As in all good stories, Cheeky came to an end. An end that tied up any loose ends and gave us the knowledge of what happened next. We weren't left guessing or thinking up our own happily ever after. Natasha Madison always delivers on the best endings. Cheeky is a story I could read forever if only it were that long. It's just that good!
