R&R || Coldhearted Boss

R.S. Grey’s next romantic comedy, COLDHEARTED BOSS, is available now – be sure to grab your copy today!

About COLDHEARTED BOSS

I’m desperate and destitute when Lockwood Construction rolls into my small town with an offer too good to pass up: high wages to any able-bodied man willing to join their crew.

Say no more. I throw on baggy clothes, tuck my long hair under a baseball hat, and apply for a job. Unfortunately, my half-baked idea of disguising myself as a guy is flawed from the beginning. As Shakira says, these hips don’t lie.

Still, I like to think I might have pulled the whole thing off save for one thing:

I know my boss.

Last month, we met at a bar, and after a fiery first encounter, it seems we’re destined to be sworn enemies.

Ethan Stone is ruthless and arrogant, a man I never would have crossed had I known how much he likes to toy with his prey.

He should just fire me and be done with it. Instead, he decides to make me his personal slave. Oh right, I think they’re calling it personal “assistant” these days.

It’s torture, all of it—his bad attitude, his ruggedly chiseled face, his desire to grind me into dust.

Every one of our friction-filled battles burns hotter than the last.

A girl can only hold out for so long. Soon, I’m bound to go up in flames.

My objective? Survive the heat long enough to send home a paycheck.

My real objective? Stop having X-rated fantasies about my coldhearted boss.

my review

Coldhearted boss might have been my all time favourite by Rachel. I’ve absolutely loved every single second of it and I couldn’t stop reading. Taylor and Ethan were a hit from the get go and let’s be honest, I am a sucker for a good enemy to lovers trope in a romance book. Taylor has been dealt a hand full of crap in life and the way she deals with it is admirable. Ethan is such an ass to her, based on what happens in the start of the book I can understand this, but you know, it is a brilliant start to the book!

This book was all I wanted in a good book, Rachel doesn’t disappoint once again. Thank you so much for this book and I can’t wait to find out what else you come up with. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Coldhearted Boss, in exchange for an honest review.

REVIEW || The Boyfriend Bargain

BB - BT banner.jpg

“Who can turn down a sexy hockey star with a big . . . stick? Zack is hot hot hot, and Sugar is the perfect blend of sweet and sassy! Their chemistry sizzles in Boyfriend Bargain!”

— Melanie Harlow, USA Today bestselling author

Boyfriend Bargain, an all-new sexy and emotional sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills, is available now!

IMMBoyfriendBargainBookCover55x85_MEDIUM-new

Wanted: one hot guy with rock-hard abs and a big stick

Broke and desperate, Sugar Ryan has no use for arrogant, bad boy athletes . . . until she’s forced to bargain with the cockiest of them all.
If only he knew she was alive.
Her mission? Get on this hockey player’s radar any way possible.
Zack Morgan is the king of the ice and the bedroom—but nothing prepares him for the mystery girl who shows up everywhere he does—frat parties, his favorite bar, and finally his front door with an offer he can’t refuse. The only rule in her boyfriend bargain: no falling in love.
But after one (um, two) smoking-hot hookups, he’s done with pretending and vows to make their fake relationship real. Too bad she can’t trust a player with a reputation for breaking hearts.
Will this hockey star score his forever girl or will their Boyfriend Bargain end in heartbreak?

Excerpt:

“We should kiss, just get it out of the way and move on,” I say, sure of the crazy idea as each second passes.
There’s a hitch in Z’s breath, and his eyes go straight to my lips. “Works for me.”
“But just one. None of that fancy tongue work.”
“Afraid of falling in love with me?” He grins.
Well. My eyes take in the broad shoulders and the dragon tattoo on his muscled chest. He’s definitely my type: pure, grade A male hotness—exactly what I don’t need. “I won’t fall in love.”
Another grin. “Liar.”

my review

Ilsa has been one of my go to authors for a few years now, ever since I was lucky enough to receive an arc to her Dirty English book. She writes with a style that just pulls me in and that doesn’t let me go even after I’ve finished the book.
The Boyfriend Bargain isn’t anything different. I love a good book with the main characters either having a bargain or some kind of deal going on. Especially when the deal involves not falling in love with the other person, because duh, of course that happens anyway.
Zack and Sugar were such a cute couple from the get go, even when they were just pretending to be. I loved their banter and how everything was set up.
And hello, add this all to Zack being a HOT hockey player and it’s everything I love wrapped up in one incredible book. I was so upset when I finished the book, because as usual, I finished it way way way too quickly.

I can’t wait to find out more from Ilsa in any other books that she will write and put out into the world.

 

WRAP UP || April

Hi everyone,

And then it was the end of April and with that comes another one of my wrap ups. I’ve been really enjoying doing these every single month. It sort of lets me rethink about the books that I read. I am a fast reader and sometimes by the end of the month I forget some of the details that I have read in the books. These wrap ups make me rethink on them and kinda relive the books in my head. But that being said, here we go. I read a total of 14 books this month, 6 physical books, 6 ebooks and 2 audiobooks. I am really loving this so much. Let me take you through all that I ended up reading.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling1. The first book that I read this month, was a reread. I really want to reread the Harry Potter series this year and I was already up to book four so that’s the one I started out with. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has always been one of my favourite books in the series. I just love the element of the tournament and the magic that goes through these books. I can’t wait to get started on book five and see if I still love that one as much as I’ve done previous times I’ve read it! Star_rating_5_of_5

2. The second book was one that I bought on a lim, because I saw it while The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarrosscrolling through my feed on instagram. One of the people that I follow was raving about this book and I trust her opinions a lot which lead to me buying the book. I bought, received and FLEW through this book. I finished The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarros at 2.30am whilst completely in tears for the last 50 pages or so. This book was SO incredible that I instantly took it with me the next time I saw my sister because like I do, she loves military romances as well. And frankly, I wanted her to read this book and be broken like I was! Star_rating_5_of_5

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan3. Another series that I really want to reread, is the Percy Jackson series. I read this series back whilst I was an au pair in 2014. I flew through the series but I just really love the vibe the series gives up. I’m a sucker for Greek mythology and this book just gives it all. I bought the series through my kindle app, as I love that I can make the annotations and high lights in the books. Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is the first in the series and thereby the first in my reread. Star_rating_4_of_5

4. The fourth book I read is a picture book. The bookshops here in the Kikker is Kikker by Max VelthuijsNetherlands have started this thing where every few months or so they will release a book, most of the time a really popular children’s book and you buy it for only €2. I have bought all the books up until now because I love books and I have read all of those books when I was little. Anyway, this time if was a book about Frog and Frog is one of my favourite picture book series out there. Star_rating_4_of_5

Crazy for Your Love by Lexi Ryan5. Next up is the newest release by Lexi Ryan. Crazy for Your Love was one of my most anticipated for April and I dove straight in as soon as I received it on my kindle app. I have been loving this series so much and the fifth book was no exception. I can’t wait for the next one that is coming in September. Lexi has gained a new fan in me! Star_rating_4_of_5

6. Whilst Defy Me came out this month, I still have to read it. I did Shadow Me by Tahereh Mafihowever read the novella that Tahereh released. It’s in Kenji’s POV and I loved it so much! Shadow Me was way too short and I can’t wait to read the other novella that will be releasing in his pov. I love reading about him. He was always one of my favourite characters and I love that he has his own novellas. Star_rating_4_of_5

The Red Scrolls of Magic by Cassandra Clare7. And then The Red Scrolls of Magic arrived on my doorstep. Cassandra Clare is releasing these books in such a quick pace that I haven’t even all caught up in the Shadowhunter world yet. However I will gladly take a pause and read about Magnus and Alec at any time. I loved going back to the period between the books in the Mortal Instruments series where Magnus and Alec go on a trip around Europe and of course get into trouble. I really liked this book, I hope the second book will be here before we know it! Star_rating_4_of_5

8. Next up is the first audiobook that I listened to/read this month. Damaged Like Us by Damaged Like Us by Krista RitchieKrista and Becca Ritchie is the first book in the Like Us series and starts off a few years after the end of the Addicted/Calloway Sisters series. It can be read separately from those, but I recommend just reading it all because they’re amazing! Maximoff and Farrow are just two of the most incredible characters and while Moffy is eerily like me with his overthinking, I just can’t help but love him so much. The audiobook was incredible and I can’t wait to dive into the second one soon! Star_rating_5_of_5

The Lost Sisters by Holly Black9. Next up is another novella that I read. I knew it was out there but I never read it until I saw one of my bookish friends read it. The Lost Sisters is part of the Folk of the Air series, which also include The Cruel Prince and the Wicked King which I read last year and in January. The Lost Sisters is told from Taryn’s perspective and ugh I just can’t stand her. She makes such stupid decisions and I just want to yell at her! Star_rating_4_of_5

10. I received the next book in my March fairyloot box and I hadn’t read itTo Best the Boys by Mary  Weber yet. Again the same bookish friend as the last book was reading this and she said it was so good. I was inbetween books at the time and decided to dive into it. Boy, am I glad I decided to do so. To Best the Boys is such an amazing book. I’ve loved every single second of it and I sincerely hope that there will be a book two for it! I hadn’t read anything by Mary Weber before so I was so excited when I finished and loved this so much as I did. Star_rating_5_of_5

Top Secret by Sarina Bowen11. And then suddenly there was Top Secret by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy. Two of my favourite romance/new adult authors and they made this magical book appear on my kindle. Top Secret tells the story of Keaton and Luke. Keaton has been happy with his girlfriend for years and is kind of shocked when she asks him for a threesome. He goes on this app to find a suitable guy and finds Luke (who is also one of his frat brothers and they reaaaaally dislike each other). They start chatting and eventually hit it off. Of course it isn’t as simple as that but I’ll let you find out the rest for yourself. I LOVED this book so much! I am a sucker for hate-to-love tropes, for text messages in books and for M/M romances like these. Star_rating_4_of_5

12. Back in 2015 I did my first read through of A Game of Thrones which I liked but A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martinwasn’t really into all that much. When I noticed one of my fellow bookstagrammers FLYING through the series, I started talking to her and eventually decided to give the series a second go. I picked up the first book in the series again and flew through it myself. I don’t know if I was just in the mood for it, or if it’s the tv series almost ending. I am loved this so much. I really want to continue on with the series this time around, because I am set on finishing it at least once! Star_rating_4_of_5

Junk Mail by Kendall Ryan13. Kendall Ryan’s newest release dropped just in the last week of April and was so excited to read it. Junk Mail starts out with a text message sent to the wrong person and turns into so much more. I really liked this book but it wasn’t my favourite by Kendall. Then again, it was still an incredible book that really had so much funny moments in it. My favourite character had to absolutely by Gram. She was such a spitfire and I kinda wished I had a grandmother like her. Star_rating_3_of_5

14. The last book I finished in April was another audiobook. I have always To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Hanwanted to get started on the series but for some reason I never did. When Netflix released the movie on the first book last year, I must’ve watched it at least 6 times already. To All the Boy I’ve Loved Before is such a funny book. I really really liked this one. Sadly I only owned the first book and I had to rectify that as soon as possible. I ended up ordering the second and third book as soon as I finished the first one. Lara Jean and Peter are so cute. I really want a sister like Kitty and I can’t wait to find out what happens next! Star_rating_4_of_5

And that’s it. That’s all the books that I ended up reading in April. How was your reading month? Did you read any good one? Any recommendations on what I should read next? I can’t wait to find out what I end up reading in May! I’m off to a good start, having already finished 2 books on just the first day! But which ones those are, you’ll have to wait for them and see in my next wrap up! See you all next time.

WRAP UP || MARCH 2019

Hi everyone!

Welcome to my third wrap up of 2019. I had an amazing reading month and I can’t wait to let you know which books I read. I didn’t read as many books as I read in the previous two months, but I did end up reading books that I really really enjoyed. I read a total of 17 books in March in the span of 31 days. I read the following books in March, with a little thought on them and my star rating on them! Here we go, in order:

Preppy by T.M. Frazier1. The first book I finished in March was the second book in a trilogy that I love and reread this year. Preppy (or The Life and Death of Samuel Clearwater) is written by one of my favourite authors out there, T.M. Frazier. If you love adult romance with a lot of extra things, go read it. It is not for the faint hearted though! Star_rating_5_of_5

2. The second book that I read was one I received as an arc. R.S. Grey is Make Me Bad by R.S. Greyone of my go-to authors when it comes to romantic comedies. I love her books and Make me bad was one that is up in my top 10 by her. To be fair, I don’t think I’ve found a book by her that I hated! I ended up giving this Star_rating_4_of_5 stars, my review is already up on my blog, if you’re interested in more!

Preppy by T.M. Frazier3. After Make Me Bad I made sure to finish out the trilogy by reading the final part in Preppy and Dre’s story. I forgot so many details about these book that I was so happy to dive back into them. I loved revisiting with my favourites and rekindling friendships with others. This was another Star_rating_5_of_5 stars from me.

4. After reading Make You Mine back in December last year, I couldn’t waitMake Me Yours by Tia Louise to find out more about Remington and what he would get up to. Add that to a daddy/nanny trope and I am absolutely sold! I loved this books so much, there was sas, there was a cute child and there was a hot romance. Heck yeah I was there for it! Star_rating_4_of_5

Surprise, Baby! by Lex Martin5. Fifth was another arc that I received. I was lucky enough to receive an arc by Lex Martin last year and when I saw this one, I couldn’t not ask for it. The book was so funny and going from hate to love in a snowstorm and what follows was what I loved about Surprise, Baby. The book, written by Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam was so funny and witty. I gave it: Star_rating_4_of_5

Extra Credit by Sarina Bowen6. When my sister told me that there was a book coming out with three novellas by Sarina Bowen, I jumped on it and read it. We already knew two of the novellas as they were previously published, but there was a new one for Graham and Rikker and oh my heart.. It was the cutest, most heartbreaking novella and I had heart eyes the entire time. Star_rating_4_of_5

Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin by Mariana Zapata7. Seventh up in March was another book by Mariana Zapata. During the last few months I’ve been slowly making my way through her books and Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin was one of the few I still had left to go. I liked this a lot although not as much as I’ve loved others by her. None the less this book received a full Star_rating_5_of_5 from me.

8. I had heard a lot of buzz about Daisy Jones & the Six and absolutely jumped on that Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reidbook when it arrived on my doorstep. It released this month and all the reviews I’d seen and heard about it absolutely did it justice. This book was all I love in a book. There will be a full review coming this week, but Star_rating_5_of_5 all the freaking way!

The Hookup Handbook by Kendall Ryan9. After reading Boyfriend for Hire last month, I was so curious about Case and his story that I pre-ordered that book straight away. I was a happy camper when the book appeared on my kindle app at midnight and I was able to dive straight in. Case and Sienna were so cute and funny and I liked this book a lot! I kinda want Sienna’s brother to have a book now as well, we’ll see if that is going to happen! Star_rating_4_of_5

10. I have not always been the biggest poetry fan, but Amanda Lovelace and Rupi Kaur The Mermaid's Voice Returns in This One by Amanda Lovelaceare up there amongst my favourites. When I found out that Amanda was coming out with a new bind up, I HAD to get that book badly. It arrived on my doorstep and I dove straight in. Her poetry is raw, builds up and sometimes is all too familiar. Her lines are so beautiful and I can’t wait to find out more. Star_rating_4_of_5

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid11. After loving Daisy Jones, I was really curious about The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. I had heard a LOT of good things about this book but had yet to pick it up until that point. I regret waiting that long because god was Reid able to write a gutwrenching beautiful story about a Hollywood actress and all that she went through, but maybe even more the author of her biography and her story. I am so excited to find out what Taylor Jenkins Reid comes up with next! Star_rating_5_of_5

12. Next up is a book that I received through a Dutch publisher to review for De Leesfabriek. De eeuwige tijd by Deborah HarknessI have been a reviewer for them since 2014 and I am loving most of the books that I receive through them. I gave this book Star_rating_3_of_5 stars because I liked it but I was confused through a lot of the book and I didn’t really enjoy this as much as I enjoyed the original trilogy.

Fantastic Beasts the Crimes of Grindelwald by J.K. Rowling13. To read another book that was on my TBR pile for a long time, I read the screenplay to the second Fantastic Beasts film, The Crimes of Grindelwald. I liked reading it but what made the book for me were the illustrations that are seen throughout this book. Those were adding the third star for me.Star_rating_3_of_5

14. By now, I own 5 books by V.E. Schwab and had yet to read one of them. Vicious by V.E. SchwabAfter watching a booktube video that also talked about Vicious I decided to finally pick it up and dive in. I LOVED this so much, there was action, revenge, supernatural and I love how the EO’s come to be in this story. I will have to pick up Vengeful soon to find out what is going to happen to Victor and Eli next. I am very excited! Star_rating_4_of_5

The Understatement of the Year by Sarina Bowen15. At the start of the year I began a reread of the Ivy Years by Sarina Bowen, as I didn’t continue on after the second book and after finishing the novellas earlier this month I was so excited to dive into Rikker and Graham’s story again. They held back their attraction so much and when I finished I realised why I loved reading their novella so much, because we find out what happens after this book. The Understatement of the Year received a full Star_rating_5_of_5 stars from me!

16. I couldn’t not continue on this series after finishing Understatement. Bella was one of The Shameless Hour by Sarina Bowenmy favourite characters throughout that book and I was so excited to find out what was going to happen to her in this book. I was not disappointed one bit. Bella and Rafe were so cute together. When Bella goes through her hardships, Rafe was the perfect friend to her and I too would’ve fallen hard for him! Star_rating_4_of_5

The Fifteenth Minute by Sarina Bowen17. And then the last book of March and the last book in the Ivy Years series. After meeting Lianne in the previous book I was, again, really curious to find out what her story would be. I got so angry at her agent, I loved her relationship with DJ Trevi, although I would’ve loved it if he would’ve just told her from the start what was going again, because I think out of ALL his friends, Lianne would’ve been the one to understand him. This book was incredible! Star_rating_4_of_5

And that is my reading bit of March wrapped up! What do you think? How many books did you end up reading this month, were there any good ones or bad ones that you really didn’t enjoy? Let me know in the comments!

REVIEW || WHY MUMMY DRINKS

35007682.jpg

 

Title: Why Mummy Drinks
Author: Gill Sims
Publisher: HarperCollins
Published on: 31 May 2018
Pagecount: 352
ISBN: 978 000 824 1094

 

 

 

It is Mummy’s 39th birthday. She is staring down the barrel of a future of people asking if she wants to come to their advanced yoga classes, and polite book clubs where everyone claims to be tiddly after a glass of Pinot Grigio and says things like ‘Oooh gosh, are you having another glass?’
But Mummy does not want to go quietly into that good night of women with sensible haircuts who ‘live for their children’ and stand in the playground trying to trump each other with their offspring’s extracurricular activities and achievements, and boasting about their latest holidays.
Instead, she clutches a large glass of wine, muttering ‘FML’ over and over again. Until she remembers the gem of an idea she’s had…

The summary for Why Mummy Drinks by author Gill Sims was one that pulled me in right away. Gill already wrote on her blog Peter and Jane, but her debut novel was one that brought motherhood with a bit of humour, recognizable situations and other fun anecdotes. I am not a mother myself, but even I recognized some of these very much so, and I’ve only been an au pair to kids.

Why Mummy Drinks is incredibly honest about how it is to be a working mother, that children are oh so good in making you look like a fool but also that consuming too much alcohol might just be a consequence of having those children. The book starts out with ‘the ideal day’: children that get up without complaining and have breakfast before walking to school completely calm. Of course it is nearly always the complete opposite, children that refuse to eat, because they’re ‘busy’ with their iPad or other electronics and then have to rush to school to make it before the bell. I have to be honest and say that most of the time it is a combination of the two. One day will always go better than another day, but isn’t that the case with everything?

Pretty quickly we learn about Ellen’s chaotic life. It exists of raising Peter and Jane, learning how to deal with the irritating habits of her husband, her job of course the mothers in the school yard. She befriends Sam, one of the fathers and with him and her friend Hannah she spends time with a glass of wine, complaining about everything and everyone, especially when family is staying at her house on top of everything.

The book is written like some kind of journal, which makes it over the top to read but it’s so good! Because Ellen writes it like she experiences it and that might not be how it is in reality. Ellen could be absolutely anyone. She lives towards a big milestone in her life and tries to be the best mother and wife she can be. And of course it’s not always as easy as it seems, no matter how much she wants to be the perfect mother most of the time it’s a dream that will never be coming true.

All in all I really loved this book, it was fun and easy to get through. I had a few laugh out loud moments about what happened in Ellen’s life. If you like a book that is a bit like Bridget Jones, then this is the book for you!

GET READY FOR || CROSSOVER COLLECTION

Hi everyone,

On the 12th of March, Kristen Proby will release 7 amazing novellas with 6 other incredible writers. I was lucky enough to receive arcs to three of the novellas, as you could’ve read in my February wrap up. I would like to tell you a bit more about them!

Soaring With Fallon Sparkle

Fallon McCarthy has climbed the corporate ladder. She’s had the office with the view, the staff, and the plaque on her door. The unexpected loss of her grandmother taught her that there’s more to life than meetings and conference calls, so she quit, and is happy to be a nomad, checking off items on her bucket list as she takes jobs teaching yoga in each place she lands in. She’s happy being free, and has no interest in being tied down. 
When Noah King gets the call that an eagle has been injured, he’s not expecting to find a beautiful stranger standing vigil when he arrives. Rehabilitating birds of prey is Noah’s passion, it’s what he lives for, and he doesn’t have time for a nosy woman who’s suddenly taken an interest in Spread Your Wings sanctuary. 
But Fallon’s gentle nature, and the way she makes him laugh, and feel again draws him in. When it comes time for Fallon to move on, will Noah’s love be enough for her to stay, or will he have to find the strength to let her fly?

Wicked Force Sparkle

Joslyn Meyers has taken the celebrity world by storm, drawing the attention of millions. But one fan’s affections has gone too far, and she’s running to the one place she hopes he’ll never find her – back home to Cunningham Falls. 
Kynan McGrath leads The Jameson Group, a world-class security organization, and he’s ready to do what it takes to keep Joslyn safe, even if it means giving up his own life in return. The one thing he’s not prepared to lose, though, is his heart.

Crazy Stupid Love Sparkle

Abigail Darwin needs one thing in life: consistency. Okay, make that two things: consistency and order. Tired of being shackled to her obsessive-compulsive mind, Abigail is determined to break free. Which is why she’s shaking things up. 
Fresh out of nursing school, she takes a traveling nurse position. A new job in a new city every few months? That’s a sure-fire way to keep her from settling down and falling into old habits. First stop, Cunningham Falls, Montana. 
The only problem? She didn’t plan on falling in love with the quaint little town, and she sure as heck didn’t plan on falling for its resident surgeon, Dr. Drake Merritt 
Laid back, messy, and spontaneous, Drake is everything she’s not. But he is completely smitten by the new, quirky nurse working on the med-surg floor of the hospital. 
Abby puts up a good fight, but Drake is determined to break through her carefully erected walls to find out what makes her tick. And sigh and moan and smile and laugh. Because he really loves her laugh. 
But falling in love isn’t part of Abby’s plan. Will Drake have what it takes to convince her that the best things in life come from doing what scares us the most?

Worth Fighting For Sparkle

Getting in deep has never felt this good… 
Commercial diving instructor Tara Hunter nearly lost everything in an accident that saw her medically discharged from the navy. With the help of the Warrior Fight Club, she’s fought hard to overcome her fears and get back in the water where she’s always felt most at home. At work, she’s tough, serious, and doesn’t tolerate distractions. Which is why finding her gorgeous one-night stand on her new dive team is such a problem. 
Former navy deep-sea diver Jesse Anderson just can’t seem to stop making mistakes—the latest being the hot-as-hell night he’d spent with his new partner. This job is his second chance, and Jesse knows he shouldn’t mix business with pleasure. But spending every day with Tara’s smart mouth and sexy curves makes her so damn hard to resist. 
Joining a wounded warrior MMA training program seems like the perfect way to blow off steam—until Jesse finds that Tara belongs too. Now they’re getting in deep and taking each other down day and night, and even though it breaks all the rules, their inescapable attraction might just be the only thing truly worth fighting for.

Nothing Without You Sparkle

Designing wedding cakes is Maisey Henderson’s passion. She puts her heart and soul into every cake she makes, especially since she’s such a believer in true love. But then Tucker McCloud rolls back into town, reminding her that love is a complete joke. The pro football player is the hottest thing to come out of Cunningham Falls—and the boy who broke Maisey’s heart back in high school. 
He claims he wants another chance. She says absolutely not. But Maisey’s refusal is the ultimate challenge to Tucker. Life is a game, and Tucker’s playing to win Maisey’s heart—forever.

All Stars Fall Sparkle

She left. 
Two words I can’t really get out of my head. 
She left us. 
Three more words that make it that much worse. 
Three being another word I can’t seem to wrap my mind around. 
Three kids under the age of six, and she left because she missed it. Because her dream had never been to have a family, no her dream had been to marry a rockstar and live the high life. 
Moving my recording studio to Seaside Oregon seems like the best idea in the world right now especially since Seaside Oregon has turned into the place for celebrities to stay and raise families in between touring and producing. It would be lucrative to make the move, but I’m doing it for my kids because they need normal, they deserve normal. And me? Well, I just need a break and help, that too. I need a sitter and fast. Someone who won’t flip me off when I ask them to sign an Iron Clad NDA, someone who won’t sell our pictures to the press, and most of all? Someone who looks absolutely nothing like my ex-wife. 
He’s tall. 
That was my first instinct when I saw the notorious Trevor Wood, drummer for the rock band Adrenaline, in the local coffee shop. He ordered a tall black coffee which made me smirk, and five minutes later I somehow agreed to interview for a nanny position. I couldn’t help it; the smaller one had gum stuck in her hair while the eldest was standing on his feet and asking where babies came from. He looked so pathetic, so damn sexy and pathetic that rather than be star-struck, I took pity. I knew though; I knew the minute I signed that NDA, the minute our fingers brushed and my body became insanely aware of how close he was—I was in dangerous territory, I just didn’t know how dangerous until it was too late. Until I fell for the star and realized that no matter how high they are in the sky—they’re still human and fall just as hard.

Hold On Sparkle

Autumn O’Dea has always tried to see the best in people while her big brother, Killian, has always tried to protect her from the worst. While their lonely upbringing made Killian a cynic, it isn’t in Autumn’s nature to be anything but warm and open. However, after a series of relationship disasters and the unsettling realization that she’s drifting aimlessly through life, Autumn wonders if she’s left herself too vulnerable to the world. Deciding some distance from the security blanket of her brother and an unmotivated life in Glasgow is exactly what she needs to find herself, Autumn takes up her friend’s offer to stay at a ski resort in the snowy hills of Montana. Some guy-free alone time on Whitetail Mountain sounds just the thing to get to know herself better. 
However, she wasn’t counting on colliding into sexy Grayson King on the slopes. Autumn has never met anyone like Gray. Confident, smart, with a wicked sense of humor, he makes the men she dated seem like boys. Her attraction to him immediately puts her on the defense because being open-hearted in the past has only gotten it broken. Yet it becomes increasingly difficult to resist a man who is not only determined to seduce her, but adamant about helping her find her purpose in life and embrace the person she is. Autumn knows she shouldn’t fall for Gray. It can only end badly. After all their lives are divided by an ocean and their inevitable separation is just another heart break away…

About MAKE ME BAD

I was issued a warning: stay away from Ben Rosenberg.
As Clifton Cove’s resident “king”, he thinks he’s entitled to anyone and anything.
The trouble is, I’ve spent my whole life following the rules and playing it safe. I know what it feels like to be the good girl. I’m the police chief’s daughter and a librarian—for adorable children, no less. My wardrobe consists of colorful sundresses and baggy jeans. I might as well have a Post-it stuck to my forehead that reads: Yup, she’s a virgin.
An all-nighter with a fictional hunk is about as exciting as my life gets, until one day, fate decides to take pity on me and shove me straight into the path of Mr. Off-Limits himself.
Oof.
Just as I suspected, every inch of him promises to be my demise. Up close, he’s tall, menacing, dangerously handsome—the type of man who’s never spent a single moment worrying about the opinions of others. A well-behaved girl would do as she’s told and avoid him at all costs, but I’m overdue for a little rebellion.
No more Friday nights sprawled out on the couch in my comfiest pajamas. No more wishing I had the courage to misbehave.
Everyone thinks Ben is going to ruin me.
They think he’ll chew me up and spit me out.
Well, Ben…go ahead.
Tempt me. Taunt me.
Make me bad.

My Review

First of all, I will pick up any book by Rachel whenever it either comes out or like this one I’ve been lucky enough to receive an arc copy of the book.
I first started reading her books about 3-4 years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Make Me Bad had me excited from the moment I read the synopsis and it did not disappoint! Madison and Ben were a match from the get go. I love the small town vibe with the overprotective father and brother.
What I loved even more was the fact that there was some sort of “bet” going on, which is one of my favourite tropes in books.

Rachel you’ve done it again! I will forever recommend your books to anyone I know, and I can’t wait to see what else is to come!
