The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
Today and tomorrow are yet to be said.
The chances, the changes are all yours to make.
The mold of your life is in your hands to break.

I haven't had such a good time reading a romance in a long time. Snark, spark, history, lust, and true friendship between two fantastic likable characters makes this story rock. I was cheering on one page, sniffling the next, snorting and spitting my coffee all over on the third. What a ride.
Sexy MMA fighter Liam, is training to get the belt title that will make his business a solid thing when his BFF Chelsea comes back in town for work. Chelsea is a distraction and he needs this belt. Chelsea needs to stay focused too, she's desperate to make it in her field of work and this job might be the way to a promotion. Both need to be a success, both have hormones/feelings/history that mess with their focus. The Chelsea moves in with Liam and brings George. Who is George ? George is the one throwing up on the carpet. Read the book, he's fantastic. Living together makes for some interesting moments. That's all you'll get out of me, read it if you want more.
Thank you NetGalley and publishers for this review copy and an unbiased opinion
New York rats have a bad reputation, and this book is not going to win them any positive vibes. The long asked question may finally be answered-Who is the king of the cement jungle ? Man or rat, the battle is on ! Welcome to fight club, rat vs man, all rules off the table, only one can win.
It's all fun and games till the rat pops out of the mouth. Oh yeh expect to cringe, chuckle and shutter as you read along. Keep a hockey stick close, and be ready to run. Oh my, I loved the ending the skittering sound...so Carrie with once last EEKK or squeak depending on your humanity level.
Thanks NetGalley and publishers for the review copy.
Happy that's what I feel when I finish a Jill Shalvis book. I love this family and want to have them adopt me. Imagine a big loving Italian family who own a very successful winery. They love to help up the underdogs in the world. This story is about underdogs drifting till they land on this family's doorstep. If you love a good heart warming story about love, family, success, happiness, and trust, this is the author for you.
Oh I love Ms Pearson's writing. She has such talent for building worlds with unforgettable characters. The characters are well developed, complex and vulnerable. Just the way I like them. The words are spun so visually reading them is like watching a movie. Thrilling, edge of my seat action, heartbreak, romance, and some fun.
This book follows in the world of The Remnant Chronicles, the author's previous series which loved. Some years have passed, and there are a few crossover characters. The heroine, is a elite guard for the Queen, who has a vary sorted, sad past. She struggles with her demons while trying to keep her promises to her queen. The male lead is a strong, honest man who is thrust into his role as head of a country when his father suddenly dies. She expresses her superiority in a public way and he tries to teach her a lesson that backfires on them both. They find themselves chained together as slaves, the sparks fly hot and mistrusting. being chain together, needing each other can bring two together or scar them forever. The beginning of tale has just begun at this point, it goes so much farther.
I can not wait to see where these characters go in the next book.
Thank You NetGalley and Henry Holt & Company for the review copy
I love these authors work. They always writes smart characters, communicators, with realistic hot romances. She's not afraid to make the woman the more sexually advanced either, and she doesn't make this an ego buster for the men. I loved this one, I have so many highlights it's crazy.
Josey, a college student, young unsettled and odd to most finds herself suddenly homeless. She needs to find a job and a place to live quick to support her education. After wearing out her friends couch she is pointed in the direction of a live in paid job. Her new boss, a hot rugby player who needs company/babysitter to keep him from his kink. Yep, he, Will has a kink and it as exposed and exploited in the media hurting his career and more. The two of them are opposites, which makes for fun, snark and much more.
