Crazy for Your Love, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lexi Ryan

A family wedding with a fake boyfriend, meddling parents, and an obsessive ex . . . What could go wrong?

The only thing worse than being single at my sister’s wedding is finding out that my ex will be there too. Not just any ex—the guy everyone expected me to marry, the man I came to Jackson Harbor to escape.

Now I need a date, and fast. Enter Carter Jackson—the firefighter who’s dealing with an unwanted five minutes of fame ever since a shirtless photo of him saving a puppy went viral. He’s warding off propositions left and right, and he needs a fake relationship as much as I do.

Sweet and sexy, Carter is completely off-limits. See, I have a rule. A no heartache rule. Not only is Carter my friend and a known heartbreaker, but his job as a firefighter puts him in danger daily, and that’s something I just can’t handle.

The commitment between us might be pretend, but the passion all too real. As crazy as it makes me, I have to keep Carter at an arm’s length. Even that might not be enough to spare my heart.

Excerpt:

“The whole drive from the hospital, I told myself I wanted to check on you.” Carter wraps his hands around his coffee and looks up at me through thick, dark lashes most women would pay a premium for. “But the second I walked in the door, I knew that wasn’t what brought me here. I want to finish what we started.”

I bite my lip and whimper. “You’re killing me.”

“And when you look at me like that, all I want to do is seduce you into ignoring your better judgment.”

That! my traitorous body cries. Yes, let’s do that!

“But I get it,” he continues. “We’re friends, and as tempting as I find you—as tempting as I’ve always found you—if adding sex to our friendship is out of the question for you, this conversation is over. I want you, but I’m not enough of an idiot to ruin this just to take you to bed.”

My brain stumbles on as tempting as I’ve always found you before landing on adding sex to our friendship. Is that an option? Does that ever work? Crap on a cracker. I’ve known Carter for four years, and I’ve never had to exert so much self-control for something as simple as not straddling his lap.

“Tell me what you’re thinking.” His voice is low, a husky rumble that bypasses my brain and speaks directly to the parts of my anatomy I’d rather exclude from this conversation.

I’m thinking I want you too. I’m thinking we could be naked and in my bed in less than sixty seconds. “I’m thinking you should leave,” I blurt, pushing the words past the other really bad ideas on the tip of my tongue.

He blinks at me, then nods as he pushes out of his chair. “Sure. I understand.”

Jumping up, I catch his arm. I can feel the heat of his skin through the cotton of his shirt sleeve. “I’ve never done this.”

His eyes go wide. “Wow. I thought . . . Seriously?”

“Not sex, you idiot. The whole friends-with-benefits thing. I’m not sure I’m made that way.”

He’s quiet for a long beat. “If you need more than that from me, Tea, I—”

I press my fingers to his lips and shake my head before he can say anything else. I’m not hoping for more. More is out of the question for me with someone like Carter. But even so, I don’t want to hear that he doesn’t want anything either. I know it’ll feel like rejection—even if that makes me a hypocrite. “I don’t want more, but I don’t know if . . .”

I drop my hand from his mouth and lift onto my toes to press my lips to his. I want to know if it’ll feel like it did last night, and the second our mouths touch, I have my answer. Electric need zips through me. I loop my arms behind his neck, planning to take the kiss deeper.

He doesn’t let me. With a hand on either of my wrists, he pulls my arms away and steps back, his eyes dark. “I’ll go. You think. If we do this, it needs to be a decision, not an accident.”

I nod and watch him leave, but I stand there for a solid five minutes, considering running after him.

My Review:

Ok so it won’t come as a surprise to anyone that I am a huge fan of Lexi Ryan. I think that I may have mentioned it a time or two. She is one of those authors with a direct line to my head. As soon as I begin to read her books I am drawn in and everything else falls to the side. Alright so I feed the children but the laundry will be neglected and I will jump up about half an hour before my husbag is due home from work in an attempt to make it not look as though I have been sitting on my arse all day immersed in a fictional world where no one ever cleans anyway. He isn’t stupid but bless him, he wants his dinner so knows better than to say anything.
WOW, I do tend to get a bit off topic. Teagan and Carter. Teagan has always stood out, she has a great personality and I really loved her character right from the very beginning. I wouldn’t say Carter got lost in all the Jackson awesomeness but neither would I say he jumped out at me. Oh no that boy is cunning, he just snuck right up on me and took me by surprise. After all you know what they say, it’s the quiet ones you have to watch out for. Teagan should have been watching out. Or not, cos then she would have missed out on all of that!
Both of them have their issues but neither were so broken that they didn’t want to help the other out, the were just drawn together and to quote another saying “what’s for you wont pass you by”. If ever there was a couple made for each other it is these two. I wouldn’t call them broken but they both have their own issues, hers in the not so forgotten past and Carter with grief and survivors guilt. Two complex issues on their own but so seamlessly brought together by the amazing talent that is Lexi Ryan. If I was stuck on a desert island and could only bring three things I think I would pick her imagination. I swear I don’t know how she does it.
This story is sweet, sexy and gut wrenching all at the same time. You will quite literally have all the feels when you are reading it. Laugh, cry and want to slap a bitch. Take my word for it.

THE RISK by Elle Kennedy [Review by Silver]

THE RISK by Elle Kennedy [★★★★☆ – 4.5/5]

Let me start off by saying that I’ve been a fan of Elle Kennedy’s books for a few years now so last week when I found out I was one of the lucky few who received an ARC of The Risk I went sort of crazy with excitement. The wait for it was a #struggle to be honest (seriously I have never experienced this feeling in anticipation for a book before).

I had pretty high expectations for this book not gonna lie. The setup for Brenna and Jake’s story in The Chase (Briar U #1) was so intriguing. Especially because ever since The Risk was announced as Brenna’s book for the first 6 months we didn’t even know if her love interest would be Jake or not! But alas EK put us #brennelly shippers out of our misery over a month before the release date by confirming it in her newsletter. (Sign up for that here btw for all the latest updates, you will not regret it!)

After reading it I can honestly say that The Risk is probably one of the best sports romances I have read so far. EK definitely has the title for “New Adult Sports Romance Queen”. I loved how she can take a trope as overdone as “enemies/rivals-to-lovers” and still put a unique twist on it. It’s what I love about all her books actually.

Brenna and Jake’s relationship was so fun to see develop. These two characters were so independent and so interesting on their own and seeing their development was the best part of the book. They are definitely the most mature of all the Off-Campus/Briar U characters, and this fact made them so intriguing.

For Jake, it was nice to see a character so focused and passionate about hockey to the point that he felt he would never have time for a serious girlfriend. It was nice to see that him learning that he doesn’t need to give up one thing for the other but rather learn how to make time for both. Brenna was bad ass as usual and her take-no-shit/unapologetic attitude was so refreshing to read.

Another part I really enjoyed were the subplots in the book. One thing I love about the Off-campus/Briar U books is how realistically the college environment is portrayed. The fun banter between friends and the pranks were so much fun to read. I love how EK can stay unbiased with all her characters – good or bad they’re her characters and it really seems like she can’t hate on any of them. A character that I surprisingly really liked was Brooks Weston. He has a lot of issues that’s for sure but that’s what made him so captivating (here’s hoping he gets a book in the future!)

The only problem I had with the book was the pacing. The beginning and especially the end seemed to go too fast. The ending especially seemed too abrupt and I feel the book would have benefitted with maybe another scene or two with our main couple. The epilogue could have been better too, it seemed like it was written very last minute and felt rushed.

All that said I’m not lying when I say I read this book in one sitting (but is that really surprising considering how much I was looking forward to this book?). It’s fun, exciting, and just overall a great read. I feel as if this couple has ruined me for all other book couples – I don’t know how I will ever get over them. Is it too early to petition for a #Brennelly sequel? I can’t wait to see more of Brenna and Jake, but for now I guess I will go re-read The Risk.

If you’re looking for a fun, quick, refreshing new adult read then this book is definitely for you. Check it out on February 18th you will not be disappointed!

Two households, both
alike in dignity… hit a serious snag in their ongoing prank war last
semester.
The Blossoms of #246
and the Dudes of #247 each lost a member to flippin’ Love. (Insert eye-roll
here.)
The
lovebirds/turncoats now plan to move out of their houses and in with each
other. But true prankster talents like Kitty are few and far between, so the
remaining Blossoms are going to make damn sure there’s no shacking up before
Kitty has the perfect replacement for herself.
The Blossoms and the
Dudes agree on very little, but everyone agrees on this: there can be no more
pranks-turned-lovers between the two arch-fratenemy houses.
Yep, everyone
agrees.
Almost everyone.

Guess who the next book is about?
Excerpt
VISIT TO THE IOTA FRAT MANSION
K-Pop opens
the door, candy eyes as bright as ever and flawless features drawn up in a
mischievous smile. He’s wearing rabbit ears, but I know better than to ask.
They’re of the kind that are stuck to a hood so that his whole head is covered
in fake grey fur. The ears are long and soft-looking with pink centers. I want
to pet him.
“My, my,
my,” he mimics every Dude ever opening the door for a Blossom. “What have we
here? Picasso come here and see what we have here. It’s the Blossom who wants
to suck you off!”
“How about
you shut your face?” I ask sweetly. The last time I was here, I magically
avoided the Pirate Punch. The Dude Den’s most infamous concoction consists of
every type of alcohol available. That and jam. Any jam. Unfortunately, even
though I avoided it, I was still lit by the time I ended up in his room.
“Saki is
here to lick your prick!” K-Pop hollers.
“Oh my God,
you’re so stupid,” I say. “Where is he?”
One thing
never fails in 247: every Dude that’s not the one you ask for will appear in
the doorway. Guns is wearing a Viking helmet. Lucian pokes his head out behind
him with wet hair and a comb sticking straight up from it. “Hey, Blossom.
What’s up?”
“She’s here
to—”
“Long Dick,
if you don’t shut your trap, I’ll pour all this paint down your throat.” I hold
up the goddamn ochre. “You know what? I’m too busy for this. I’m going to just
leave the paint here and get going.”
“That
wasn’t the deal, I believe.”
I scrunch
my eyes shut and open them slowly at the melodious, too intimate voice. Finding
a pair of stunning grey eyes above me, I straighten and give Picasso the
stare-down he deserves.
“I’m not as
anal as you, so sorry for forgetting the exact manner in which I am to return
the ochre. Let’s see.” I pucker my mouth like I’m thinking. I’m not gonna lie
and say I don’t enjoy it when his gaze sinks to watch my lips. “Nope, I’ve got
nothing. Unless you wanted me to pour it right on your precious painting
myself?”
He lets out
a small snort and hooks his finger for me to follow him. I’m not too chicken to
obey. And up the stairs of the Dude mansion we go… sober.

Legend by Sawyer Bennett, IT’S LIVE

Legend (Arizona Vengeance, Book #3)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: February 5, 2019

 

Synopsis:
The Arizona Vengeance is hockey’s hottest new team. But hockey’s hottest goalie is learning that even the best players sometimes need an assist.

Everything is clicking for the Vengeance. We may be new, but we’re well on our way to winning the championship, and I’m having the time of my life headlining the sports media as the hottest goalie—hell, player—ever. I for one am going to live up to my name . . . because I am Legend Bay.

Dragging my ass home from the gym, I’m blinded by some gaudy, glowing holiday lights. As usual, my hot-as-hell neighbor Pepper Nantais has gone way over the top. But just as I’m about to tell her off, something else catches my eye . . . Seems like Santa left me a present, and not one I was expecting.

As life takes an unexpected turn, I realize that there’s much more to Pepper than meets the eye. Sure, she’s gorgeous. And exasperating. And her taste in decorating may be a bit . . . unique.

But beneath her carefree demeanor is a fierce determination and a heart of gold. And before I know it I’ve fallen for her. Hard . . .

Pepper is exactly the woman I never knew I needed.
