Review: Cocky Roommate

Cocky Roommate Cocky Roommate by Claire Kingsley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There's nothing like finding a hot, sexy, broody alpha asshole.

It's one of those things that happens often. Cocky, arrogant, and broody all rolled into one neat little (well, not little) package. Add in a phobia for relationships, money, and the ability to push people away and you've got yourself the perfect Alpha Asshole.

Meet Weston.

He's that perfect culmination of all the things you want in your Book Boyfriend. And he is the last thing Kendra expected when her brother, Caleb, said he had a colleague who needed a place to stay for a while.

I couldn't put this book down. I mean, I had to, but only because I have a job and that job does not allow me to sit around with a book in my hand. So, Weston and Kendra are, like, the perfect match. Weston is all super asshole, but you know there's more to him. You're given glimpses into why he behaves the way he does. And Kendra. Well, you met Kendra in Book Boyfriend. She was smart and sassy and just so giving and caring. It's no surprise she is the perfect roommate.

I know I said you could find those asshole traits in any book boyfriend, but they won't look quite as good on anyone else. Weston wears that arrogant asshole card with such style that I couldn't resist him. You won't be able to resist him either.

And just know he does the big gesture. If you did read Book Boyfriend and you managed to meet Alex and Mia, just know that Weston's grand gesture is better than Alex's grand gesture. And that says so, so much.

I've already downloaded the next book. This series is that good.

Review: Love 'em or Leave 'em

Love 'em or Leave 'em Love 'em or Leave 'em by Angie Stanton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another new author for me to meet. Another feel good story for the year.

This story is one of those sweet, feel good stories that will leave you with a smile. It may be a touch predictable, but that doesn't take away from the characters. I mean, most romance is predictable to an extent, so that's not really a surprise.

Ashley is not a fan of cameras, but somehow finds herself smack dab in the middle of a reality tv show. Think The Bachelor, but with a different name.

Luke is a star quarterback who lost a bet so he is now the star of the new reality tv show, Love 'em or Leave 'em. He's supposed to find his true love while filming a show. Riiiiiight.

The show does not end the way you think. It's one of those unique twists that leave you asking yourself "well, WHAT NOW?" because you just know he's in love with one of these women *ahem* Ashley *ahem*.

Find out the fate of our stars, Ashley and Luke, in this cute story about an unlikely pairing and an unfortunately timed tantrum.

*I listened to the audio of this. It is the first time I've heard this narrator and I believe she did a fine job of voicing the different characters and bringing the story to life.

Review: Baby Daddy

Baby Daddy Baby Daddy by Kendall Ryan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kendall Ryan knows how to do the sexy and the sweet. She knows how to put them both into a story and make it explode.

Emmett and Jenna meet in an elevator. She's on her way to the sperm bank. He's not on his way to the sperm bank. When he learns of her crazy plan to get knocked up in a sterile room, he kindly steps in and offers his services.

Yes, he offers to have sex with her so she can get pregnant. There's no way this will go differently than planned.

This is one of those fun, feel good books. I'm clearly on a fun, feel good kick lately because this is what I've been reading. I'm enjoying it. Kendall Ryan knows what she's doing in this genre and I can't wait to read this next book she writes!

*Oh, I listened to this audio. Sebastian York and Virginia Rose nail this narration.

Review: Book Boyfriend

Book Boyfriend Book Boyfriend by Claire Kingsley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I'm mad at myself. I'm mad because I have NEVER read a Claire Kingsley book before now. Why haven't I read a Claire Kingsley book prior to this one?! Why didn't anyone tell me!

Anyway, Alex is a writer. He's stuck in a book rut and can't seem to get his story off the ground.
Kendra, Alex's sister, is an editor. She's been staring at her brother's sci-fi story for years. She suggests he move in a different direction with his writing. As hesitant as he is to do so, he takes her advice and makes some changes.

Mia is clumsy, sweet, and a voracious reader.

What better story line than two people who meet in a bookstore?! Where the sexy man BUYS HER BOOKS?!

I can't say enough about this book. This is one of those feel good, sweet-as-pie, dirty dirty sex kind of books. It's fun and light and, did I mention, dirty?!

There has to be some drama, which I will not reveal here because it's just too good to spoil, and the characters have some things to work through. But OMG. Just get this freaking book and read it. You can swoon over Alex and Mia just like I did.

And after you read this book, go ahead and have Cocky Roommate lined up because you're going to want Kendra's story.

Review: Craft

Craft Craft by Adriana Locke
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another book of perfection from Adriana Locke! I absolutely LOVE Lance Gibson!!

Lance is a womanizer, using an app to find hook-ups and staying relationship free. He likes the single life. The life of one night stands and not being attached to anyone is where it's at.

Mariah is the sweet librarian. She bakes, she reads, she crushes on Lance (because who wouldn't?). She's a relationship girl. She wants it all: the marriage, the house, the kids. Loyalty, honesty, and love.

Did I mention these two work together? Lance teaches history and Mariah is the librarian. They are absolutely adorable. The banter, the flirting, the cuteness that comes out when they're near each other. Just *swoon*.

I wanted these two to work it out from the very beginning. I wanted everything good to happen to Lance and Mariah. Both such sweet people who deserve happiness.

And OMG. The sex. Yes, can't avoid that. That first time is always memorable, but holy moly mother of god. I knew it'd be hot, but Lance brings his A game from the start. You gotta read it to experience it.

So, do that. Buy it. Read it in KU. Grab a paperback. Just get your grabby hands on it (legally, of course) and enjoy. Because those Gibson boys will hook you. And the love they have will keep you.
