"Fake" [West Hollywood Series, Book 1] by Kylie Scott

Author's Book Description : The newest romance from New York Times bestselling, Audie Award winning author Kylie Scott!

He walks the red carpet. She’s more familiar with vacuuming one.

When a scandal tarnishes the reputation of hot as hell A-lister, Patrick Walsh, he needs a reputation rescue, pronto.

Enter waitress Norah Peers–a nobody who’s average with a capital A. She’s available, dependable, and has sworn off men for the rest of her natural born life. In other words: the perfect match for a no-strings fake romance.

For the right amount of money, she can avoid waitressing and play the part of his dependable down-to-earth girlfriend. What she can’t avoid–dammit–is the growing steam between them.

But being hounded by the paparazzi and having her life dissected on social media is a panic attack in the making. And while Patrick might be a charming rogue on screen, in real life he’s a six-foot-two confusing, gorgeous, brooding grump, who keeps her at a distance . . . but also makes her feel like this bond between them might be more than just an act.

Being dumped on cue should be no big deal. Except being fake with Patrick is the realist relationship Norah has ever had. What’s a girl to do, but flip the script, and ask for a re-match made in Hollywood?

“Fake kept me up late reading because I could not put this story down. I adored Patrick and Norah, the fun, the banter … all the sweetness. Not to mention the heat! Kylie Scott delivers again!" – Carly Phillips, New York Times bestselling author

“Kylie Scott has been one of my favorite authors for years. Her way with words, and her ability to make me fall in love with men I know I shouldn’t but do, anyways has always been the recipe for the perfect read for me. I absolutely loved Fake, and it was easy with brooding alpha Patrick and quirky lovable Norah. The two of them together are a match made in book heaven. I couldn’t put this book down once I started and know everyone will feel the same.” – Aurora Rose Reynolds, New York Times bestselling author

“Kylie Scott proves once again why she is one of my auto-buy authors. Fake is an absolute delight . . . for every woman who wished her celebrity crush would fall madly in love with her. Fake is romance gold from one of the genre’s best!” – Naima Simone, USA Today bestselling author

"Grumpy, megastar hero whose rare smiles bring out all the warm and fuzzies, and the upbeat, every girl heroine he never saw coming." – Ally Blake

"The Virgin Hunt Games" [The Virgin Hunt Games Series, Book 1 / Volume 1] by Mel Teshco

Author's Book Description : EARTH, YEAR 2324

Melody Simmons desperately needs to fill her bank accounts with credits that could help her family climb out of near poverty. And in the Virgin Hunt Games, that means enticing as many hunters as possible to bed her. The downside? Billions of viewers from all parts of the galaxy would be watching her fall from virtue with avid interest.

Alien Damon Banscott despises everything about the Virgin Hunt Games. Except the fact he can now legally destroy his enemy in the games. He is in this only for revenge. Then Damon sees one of the beautiful hunted and, for a moment, his heart stops beating. He’ll fight to the death before allowing another hunter to touch and deflower Melody.

But while the hunters get more credits by pleasing their captive mate sexually, the hunted women received more by finding their pleasure with any of the hunters who weren’t their assigned mate.

Let the games begin…

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars. This novel was a mixture of what I expected and what I had not expected. Also, even though I had not read the Hunger Games series I had watched the movie versions and can definitely say that this novel felt like an adult sexualized version of the Hunger Games – game-wise only as there was no similar plots – with a Cinderellaesque twist to it. THIS NOVEL WAS SOOOOOOOOOO HOT!!!

"A Knight to Remember" (now called "Rhodri") [Blood Sword Legacy, Book 5] by Karin Tabke -- Set in Wessex Coast, Southern England in 1068 ... Mercia has come back home from the abbey to see her older sister, Rowena, wed. However, while trying to seek out as much adventure she can before she goes back to the abbey to take her final vows (which she really does not want to do), Mercia decides to take a trip to the beach. Once she gets there she finds an injured man on the beach, and she feels hard pressed to help him.

Mercia set him up in a nearby cave and tends to his wounds. After the man regains consciousness, she finds that as he gets better he still doesn’t know who he is, but she still feels drawn to him just the same.

Back at her home, her family is still waiting for Rowena’s betrothed to arrive, and when his guards arrive without him, a search is set out.

What will happen once the man remembers who he is? Will Mercia be able to stay with this man and not complete her vows? Will Rowena’s betrothed ever arrive?

3.5 out of 5 stars! It's kind of like a Cinderella story, only without the Fairy Godmother and the Step Family, and kinda set into the real world of that time period. So - of COURSE I liked it! Very cute! Quite charming!

Ooh baby I love your way, Wanna tell you I love your way, Wanna be with you night and day

Pages: 278 | Release Date: Reissue edition - January 2010

Jennifer Crusie has taken a Classic story and put a new twist onto it in "The Cinderella Deal"! -- Daisy has been working as an artist/storyteller for 4 years now and she feels like she has nothing to show for it. Now that her savings has dwindled, she's looking for something that will help her pay her bills ... without taking any loans from her friends.

Linc has been trying to get this new position as a professor at college in Ohio. However, during his interview when asked if he was married he said, "No. But my fiancée and I are planning on getting married soon." Now the problem is he's in need of a fake fiancée (as he doesn't even have a girlfriend right now)! The first person that comes to mind that could help him out by lying to his potential employers, while not messing up their charade, is Daisy his downstairs apartment neighbor (who just happens to be his polar opposite).

Daisy and Linc agree to, what they call, their 'Cinderella Deal' where she'll help him out on that following Friday till midnight and then they'll fly back to where they live and go back to their lives. In return, Linc will pay for Daisy's expenses and take care of her debts.

The Deal seems to work ... and everything goes back to normal ... but when staff start questioning, "When's Daisy moving here?" and Linc can't seem to get his story straight ... Will they strike up another deal and go ahead and get married, just to please other people? When the whole charade is all said and done, will they be able to let each other go?

3.5 out of 5 stars! Funny & Sweet! I couldn't put the book down!!
