Confessions of a Naughty Nanny by Piper Rayne

5 STARS!

Release Date: January 7, 2019

SYNOPSIS

The Baileys are back with Phoenix & Griffin!

When a famous music producer moves to Lake Starlight it can’t just be a coincidence. It’s the universe helping to move things along in the right direction so that Griffin Thorne can discover me.

I have to confess—I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Confession #1: I may have overhead that he was in search of a nanny. What can I say? My brother has a big mouth.

Confession #2: It’s possible I helped along the assumption that I had nanny experience. Hey, babysitting my nieces and nephew counts, right?

Confession #3: There’s a good chance I oversold my qualifications. But my Grandma Dori backed me up, so it’s not completely my fault.

And it worked. He hired me. Only for me to find out that he left the business. 
I guess it’s on to Plan B.

When he accidentally overhears me singing, I expect nothing from him. Then he asks to work with me on a song for our town’s Founder’s Day Parade and it feels like a dream come true. Until…

Confession #4: I’ve fallen for him. 

REVIEW

THE DAMN BAILEY’S.

Seriously, how am I supposed to ever find a book family again?! The Bailey’s have stolen my heart and I’m not getting it back. Phoenix: “the black sheep” of the family. I have needed to know what her HEA would be for a while now, and Piper Rayne did NOT disappoint. I mean, we have an inspiring singer, who happens to become the nanny for a famous music producer with a difficult son. Griffin’s son, Maverick, transforms in such a heartwarming way! He really added so much to the story. This whole story gave me all the damn feels. I can’t say enough, no I really an’t, because I’ll spoil all the fun! Let’s just say I love this book as much as the five before it, and I would DEFINITELY recommend it.

Fight Dirty by Emily Goodwin

5 STARS!

Release Date: June 27, 2019

SYNOPSIS

Owen Dawson is one of Eastwood’s most eligible bachelors. He could have any woman he wants, but when it comes to settling down, he only has eyes for Charlie Williams, and he blew his chance with her years ago. While Owen is busy trying to convince everyone—and himself—that the playboy life is for him, Charlie is trying to put her life back together.

After discovering her fiancé was cheating on her, Charlie packs her bags, leaves her fancy New York job, and goes back to the one place she never thought she’d return to: home. Determined to start over and stay far, far away from men, the last thing Charlie needs in her life is her first love, Owen…and the old feelings that come rushing back the moment she lays eyes on him.

While Charlie swears to avoid romance of any kind, Owen is willing to do whatever it takes to prove he’s a changed man and win Charlie back…even if it means fighting dirty.

REVIEW

If you’ve seen my previous reviews for this series, then you know I’m completely invested in the Dawson family. And once again the Dawson Family unit is a character in and of itself that brings so much to the story. Their gatherings are full of chaos in the best way, I’d love to be apart of the mess. Readers get to see the charming and ridiculous antics of Owen in the first four books, and I was so looking forward to seeing him change his manwhore ways. The chemistry between Owen and Charlie is as hot as ever, and it made for one fun ride. His single-minded pursuit is just so appealing to me as a romance reader, but I also love how his confidence slips at times making him more realistic. I was just so happy at the end of this book, and I’d definitely recommend it!

Now my fellow Dawson family readers, have we started a petition for Dean’s divorce and new love story yet?! Why yes, that sounds like a horrible sentiment, but his wife has just kind of sucked in every book, and I just feel like Dean, being a Dawson, deserves so much more. Only time will tell if Emily Goodwin will give us all what we’re hoping for!

Once Upon a Bad Boy by Melonie Johnson

5 STARS

Release Date: June 25, 2019

Publisher: St. Martin’s Press

SYNOPSIS

NEVER SAY NEVER
Sadie Gold is ready to take her career to the next level with the role of a lifetime. Finally, she can shake her reputation as a pretty face with more wealth and connections than talent. But Sadie is not prepared for the wild turn her own life is about to take. The man in charge of training Sadie for her most demanding role yet is none other than her first real boyfriend—the one who took her heart and ran away.

WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
Bo Ibarra is as good-looking and irresistible as ever. Maybe even more so, now that everything once worked against them—Sadie’s pampered and privileged upbringing and Bo’s childhood in a family struggling to make ends meet—is in the past. But the future is still unwritten…and getting there, together, means coming clean about painful secrets and slashing through nasty tabloid rumors while trying to control the attraction that crackles between them. Maybe it’s finally time for them to walk off into the sunset and into a true and lasting love?

REVIEW

This was an EPIC second-chance romance! Did I want to smack teenage Bo for breaking up with a teenage Sadie, even though he thought he was doing the right thing? YES. Luckily, that’s the past and we’re thrown right into the present. What I loved most though, is that Bo and Sadie were both fairly straight forward when it came to their feelings. They both have past hurts they’re hiding, but it’s like they both know they’re meant to be together now. I love the people they have become, and seeing them struggle with their individual insecurities. There is just so much depth to both of them, and I was so invested in their happy ending.

Then you have the celebrity drama to add a little more spice. I loved getting to know Ana more too, as we’ve seen glimpses of her and Sadie in the previous books. I wish we got a little more of Sadie’s grandmother, because she seems like a real gem! Overall, this was an amazing third book in the Sometimes in Love Series, and I can’t wait to get the rest of the stories involving the lovely ladies in this friends group.

The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics by Olivia Waite

5 STARS!

Release Date: June 25, 2019

Publisher: Avon Impulse

SYNOPSIS

As Lucy Muchelney watches her ex-lover’s sham of a wedding, she wishes herself anywhere else. It isn’t until she finds a letter from the Countess of Moth, looking for someone to translate a groundbreaking French astronomy text, that she knows where to go. Showing up at the Countess’ London home, she hoped to find a challenge, not a woman who takes her breath away.

Catherine St Day looks forward to a quiet widowhood once her late husband’s scientific legacy is fulfilled. She expected to hand off the translation and wash her hands of the project—instead, she is intrigued by the young woman who turns up at her door, begging to be allowed to do the work, and she agrees to let Lucy stay. But as Catherine finds herself longing for Lucy, everything she believes about herself and her life is tested.

While Lucy spends her days interpreting the complicated French text, she spends her nights falling in love with the alluring Catherine. But sabotage and old wounds threaten to sever the threads that bind them. Can Lucy and Catherine find the strength to stay together or are they doomed to be star-crossed lovers?

REVIEW

Female/female romance. SIGN ME UP! But a Female/female historical romance, I am beyond intrigued. I went into this with high expectations, and they were totally met! I loved this story for many reasons. The writing was done so well that I really felt the depth of the story. I think my favorite part was that both women were in such unhappy places in their lives when they first met. They share a connection through astronomy, but one does not have fond memories associated with it. The women are also struggling with the expectations of the time period and how those expectations limit their lives and pursuit of joy. Watching Lucy and Catherine build a relationship and grow together had me utterly enthralled with this story. It was a little slow in the middle, but I usually feel that historical romances have a slow part somewhere that I could skim through (it’s a personal problem haha). Overall, I feel that this book was exactly what I wanted it to be and I would definitely recommend it!

Sexy Filthy Boss by Piper Rayne

5 STARS

Release Date: June 11, 2019

SYNOPSIS

He’s the sexy alpha male in the corner office who goes through assistants faster than free donuts in the breakroom.

I’m the assistant who was chosen to cover for his last fire.

The owner of the company is clear—hook the biggest client in our firm’s history and there’s a partnership for him and a promotion for me. Stipulation—we do it together.

It doesn’t take a tarot card-reading psychic to figure out where our story is headed… late nights, trips out of town, and more than a few awkward moments filled with sexual tension.

No worries though. I pride myself on my willpower. I can totally ignore his sexy grin, his rock-hard body and his dreamy brown eyes. I will not become the woman other women hate.

But it turns out that Enzo Mancini has a lot of layers and if I don’t stop peeling, I’m going to lose everything, including my dignity.

REVIEW

Anyone up for a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors? Just don’t ask Enzo to play for you! Haha. This book was a wonderful surprise. It’s not your average falling-for-the-boss story. There are realistic, current issues about a woman moving up in a male-dominated field that added depth to the story I wasn’t expecting. Annie can be timid, but she can totally hold her own at the same time. Enzo’s Character development was absolutely amazing and not what I thought it would be. The camaraderie between the brothers was full of great banter, and I’m really excited to get Dom and Carm’s stories. Not to mention their sister, Blanca, seems like a spitfire that I must know more about. I’m so very excited for this series. It’s going to be so much fun witnessing the fall of all the Mancini brothers!

Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey

5 STARS!

Release Date: June 11, 2019

Publisher: Avon

SYNOPSIS

After an injury ends Travis Ford’s major league baseball career, he returns home to start over. He just wants to hammer out his frustrations at his new construction gig and forget all about his glory days. But he can’t even walk through town without someone recapping his greatest hits. Or making a joke about his… bat. And then there’s Georgie, his buddy’s little sister, who is definitely not a kid anymore.

Georgette Castle has crushed on her older brother’s best friend for years. The grumpy, bear of a man working for her family’s house flipping business is a far cry from the charming sports star she used to know. But a moody scowl doesn’t scare her and Georgie’s determined to show Travis he’s more than a pretty face and a batting average, even if it means putting her feelings aside to be “just friends.”

Travis wants to brood in peace. But the girl he used to tease is now a funny, full-of-life woman who makes him feel whole again. And he wants her. So damn bad. Except Georgie’s off limits and he knows he can’t give her what she deserves. But she’s becoming the air he breathes and Travis can’t stay away, no matter how hard he tries… 

REVIEW

Are you wondering if a book can be absolutely adorable and absolutely filthy at the the same time? Well the answer is YES, yes it can. This book was a wonderful surprise from the very first scene–which includes flying food and is my favorite by the way. You’ll see.

Georgie is a sassy, smart, little spitfire! Honestly, I just fell absolutely in love with her in this book. Her strength as she pursues her dreams and supports her friends is so inspiring. Which leads me to the female friendships that are developing in this story. These ladies are supporting each other, listening to each other, and rooting for each other. It’s beautiful really, and adds so much to the story. I can’t wait for book two–Love Her or Lose Her–where we get the story of the next strong lady in the group!

Travis Ford is one damaged man, and I’m here for the growth. You don’t get to choose your biological family, and you sure as hell can’t stop bad things from happening, but you can’t give up. We get to watch Travis figure this out and it’s so heart warming. Plus, his sexy side, I mean this book is STEAMY. I hope you’re ready for his filthy mouth!

REVIEW

I love the small town romance! Seriously, the small town dynamics are so heartwarming. The characters are messy, and so easy to love. Laurel is in a wild predicament, but she’s so endearing. Mitch has a past that is impacting his views on the Monroes, especially Laurel. I seriously couldn’t put this book down once I got into it! I think my favorites are Odette and Flip, the older sisters which gruff personalities. I’m hoping they make more appearances throughout the series. I’ll definitely be keeping up with The Mountain Monroes!
