It was apparently the month to indulge in the new series from the fantastic romantic comedy duo, Max Monroe.  This series is everything a rom-com should be.  This crazy crew will have you laughing and sighing over the romantic gestures from these Billionaire Bad Boys.  These boys and their wonderful ladies should a definite addition to your TBR.

This is a sweet, low angst friends to lovers romance.  The reader will enjoy the group dynamic of among the girlfriends and the sweet and caring heroes created by Kristen Proby.  Overall the writing is solid, the characters are enjoyable, and the plot is well-paced. It is perfect read for that lazy Sunday.

This was my first book by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, and I liked it.  The characters drive this story, and they are very complex.  Within the final chapters of the book, the author is still revealing elements of who they are.  So, if you are love a good character-driven office romance, then this may be the book for you.

I have enjoyed this whole series (they can be read as standalones), but Burn Down the Night is my absolute favorite.  The character development, the suspense, and the exquisite writing make it a top read of the month for me.  If you like a little suspense with your romance, then this book is worth a look.

You know those books that are filled to the brim with drama?  That is this book, and I enjoyed every minute of it.  There are just times that I love a heavily dramatized romance with lots of secrets and revelations, and this one fits the bill. If you haven’t checked out any of her books, they are certainly worth a look.

Wicked Bond is more than I could have hoped for for the final book in this series. My emotions were all over the place when reading this book, and, as expected, I loved Bridger, every single flawed and damaged part of him. I love the story, the writing, the freaking epilogue!!!! I am so very sad that it is all over. I will miss these men and their women and, of course, the Silo.

Darkest Link Cover

4 CROWNS

I love Scarlett Cole as a writer.  Her writing is vivid, and she writes with such emotion.  The tale she creates with The Darkest Link is one of redemption.  There is romance, hot sex, lovable characters, and a plot that will leave you in suspense.  I would highly recommend the series as a whole, and even though the series can be read as stand alone books, Book 1 and 4 in the series are closely connected.  For a more enjoyable reading experience, I would suggest reading book 1 before starting this book.

5 CROWS (SD) & 4 CROWNS (ND)

These two books can be completely read as stand-alone books, although Neighbor Dearest’s heroine is the ex-girlfriend of the Elec from Stepbrother Dearest.

I love Penelope Ward as a writer, and she continues to earn my admiration after reading these two books.  There is a lot of angst, lots of laughs, lots of lines that will have you swooning over Damien and Elec.  This should definitely be on your TBR if you are looking for a quick and angst-filled read.

Bad JUD Cover Front

Bad Judgment is everything I have come to love from an Meghan March novel.  You will meet dirty talking heroes, feisty heroines, and the plot will have you sitting on the edge of your seat, with revelations occurring well into the final chapters of the book.  This book is no different, and Ryker and Justine will have you falling in love with their journey.

I am a complete sucker for a bad boy rocker who is healed with love, and A.L. Jackson delivers on all counts.  These stories are gripping, the characters are broken but heal, and her words are exquisite.  I truly love every single book in the series, and each one just gets better and better than the last.

Long Shot by Kayti McGee is a good romantic comedy.  There is outrageous humor and lots of great sex, and Rob, the hero of the story, stole the show for me, and it was, overall, an enjoyable read.

Karina Halle’s writing is beautiful.  Her characters are often broken and very flawed, and, of all her flawed McGregor men, Keir is my favorite.  His brokeness and need for redemption will pull on your heartstrings, and you will want Jessica to be the one to heal him.  Even though this story centers around tragedies, it is still one of hope through.

*This can be read as a standalone!

El Diablo is an absolute epic ride.  You will feel like the author has ripped open your chest and is playing with your heart.  There is really no other way to describe.  The characters, especially Aljenadro, complete vile acts in this book, but I just didn’t care.  M. Robinson develops the characters in a way that makes me sympathetic to them, and the plot hits will keep you guessing until the very end of this book.  It really is just fantastic!

I loved every single minute of this crazy, hilarious ride.  The antics of Wyatt and Natalie will have you laughing uncontrollably, and, even when you want to kill them for their resistance, you still love them because you understand their hesitancy. The male point-of-view creates a fresh voice in the romance genre.  Finally, this book has crazy hot sex scenes.  The chemistry and inability to resist each other is palpable and radiates off of the screen.  This is a definite must read.

Full review will be released during the blog tour this month.
