"Moving In" by Chloe Kincaid

Author's Book Description : They are three very different men, but deep down, they're all big, tough studs at heart.

The timing could not have been worse.

My dorm room is flooded, and it’s only one week before I’m set to play in the regional soccer championships. Of course, the only room available is in an off-campus house currently occupied by three guys—or three jerks I should say, according to the rumors circulating around campus. But it’s either live there or on the street.

So off I go.

I just need to stay focused on the game and my studies. But how can I when the three guys are just so damn hot? And despite their reps, they may not be so bad after all.

Could I actually be falling for them? Really?

I’ve never even been able to handle one boyfriend. What the hell am I supposed to do with three sexy guys?

Hmm, I think I have a few ideas…

"Moving In" is a reverse harem young adult contemporary romance involving three passionate alpha heroes and tons of kindle-melting heat, love at first glances, and sweet innocence. This mfmm romance is all about her – no m/m. If you love over-the-top, slightly unrealistic, and wildly dirty stories, this one’s for you! HEA with no cheating!

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, after her college dorm floods out Natalie moves into a new dorm that she’ll be sharing with three other guys. Not long in to living there she finds she’ll be sharing a whole lot more with them too.

This was another reread that I did because of losing my original rating and review for it (find out the whole story on my blog) but it was also in conjunction with Smutathon (a readathon hosted over on youtube through gingerreadslainey & Riley Marie’s channels). Now I of course knew this was a smutty read before I even reread it … I mean look at the cover. But I had forgotten (a bit) about how this novel’s plotline would go so I was excited to pick it up again. Therefore,

I've found a reason for me, To change who I used to be, A reason to start over new ...

Betrayal of the ones we love are the hardest things to get past, in "Catch A Mate" by Gena Showalter all the characters deal with their own or others betrayals on almost a daily basis. Catch A Mate is a business where people who believe their significant other is cheating on them and want to find out if their accusations are accurate or not. All that person would have to do is hire Catch a Mate and an employee (called the bait) would find that significant other at a club (or some place they normally hang out) and try picking them up but at the end they don't follow it through, and they record it all so the spouse will know the truth. Jillian has worked at Catch A Mate for over 6 years and would love to take it over to make it even better then it already is. Marcus just happened to purchase the business from Jillian's boss. Both have major trust issues ... but will they learn that even though they want to stay enemies, they'll never find anyone else they could trust more then each other?

2 out of 5 stars. Don't let the rating fool you ... it was a really good book ... cute. I mean I loved all of the characters! Main and secondary stories were awesome! However ... the ending ruined it for me .... it felt like Gena tried to wrap everything up to fast. Yet I don't know how it could have been written any better either. Which is sad since I liked it right up until there was about a quarter left in the book. =0(

To find out more about this book and/or other books by Gena, then check out her website.

Made the Grade: A Bride for All Seasons Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 528 KB | Release Date: February 2009 | Publisher: Harlequin Books

"The Bride's Baby" [A Bride for All Seasons Series, Book 1] by Liz Fielding

My Book Summary : Sylvie has planned so many weddings that she is now the most sought after Bridal Planner, however when one of her friends decides on ditching their groom three days before their wedding for one of her employees her whole world changes.

Tom has just been left/dumped by his run away bride and now wants to confront the person who he would like to lay the blame on, Sylvie, especially since it was her employee. While hassling her at a meeting to go over the invoices that he needs to pay for the wedding, even though it never happened, sparks fly in more ways then one! Once the dusts settles they find they can't deny what is between them any longer, and they find themselves together in his bed.

Afterwords, Tom leaves the country as he planned but can't get her out of his mind, while Sylvie finds out she's pregnant and plans for what will happen next, and it is all uphill for them miscommunications galore! Will the truth ever come out before it's too late?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. Predictable but cute story! The good thing about it was that with all of the miscommunications between them it was written in a way that didn't make me feel like either character was annoying or make me not like one character because of how they could have acted.

Book Teaser :
"Tell me what he's seeing that's making him melt," Geena persisted.
His gaze dropped to the unmistakable bulge where his baby was growing beneath her heart and, shattering the illusion, said, "Sackcloth and ashes would do it." Then, turning abruptly away, "Mark, have you got everything you need in here?" ~ within Chapter 4

Made the Grade: Positively Pregnant Series, Book 1

Format: Paperback | Pages: 238 | Release Date: June 2006 | Publisher: Silhouette Books

"Having Her Boss's Baby" [Positively Pregnant Series, Book 1] by Susan Mallery

My Book Summary : Coming into work, Dev doesn't expect to run into his Secretary's Assistant (who is also his late younger brother's girlfriend) or to find out that, she is pregnant! Trying to think of what he would have his brother do if he was still alive, Dev proposes that Noelle and him get married (as a marriage of convenience) for two years for her to get on her feet, have support while she's still in college, and then they'll go their separate ways. At first Noelle isn't sure way Dev has offered this since she knows she wouldn't keep Dev out of her child's life but she goes home to think it over. However, when she gets home to discuss the situation with her mom, she finds that she can't or if she did, she would add unneeded stress about additional bills for her family that she just doesn't want to include. Therefore, thinking she's taking the easy-way-out Noelle meets with Dev later that night and agrees to marry him.

For a while, everything's great between them they find that they get along really well and they turn into friends (for the most part). However, not long after they give into their romantic feelings for each other, Noelle admits to Dev that she's in love with him, and that's when he tries to back away from their relationship. He feels like they shouldn't have feelings for each other, especially Noelle having feelings for him, so he tries his best to stop it from happening. But when unsuspected surprises come along in more ways then one ... will they be able to pull through together? Or will what they have all fall apart?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! I liked that this book was a mixture of Christian and Romantic book! It wasn't more of it one way or another but a very good mixture of both! The main characters are great and I love Noelle's friends in her knitting group! So .. if your looking for a quick romance read then this is one book you should check out!!

The PDF Version of My Book Review : https://fromjesstoyouservices.files.wordpress.com/2021/05/mallery-susan-having-her-boss-s-baby-05september2010.pdf

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Tempting | Accidentally Yours | Falling For Gracie | Chasing Perfect

Book Teaser :
Instead of the conservatively dressed woman he'd seen last night, today his wife of less than a week wore a tank top and shorts. Her feet were bare, her hair piled up on top of her head in a ponytail and she was chewing gum. She was, he acknowledged wryly, a teenage boy's dream. Which meant he had no excuse for what he was feeling---he was old enough to know better.
Still, the information didn't seem to have any impact on the sudden rush of blood south or the desire to cross the room, pull her into his arms and kiss her senseless. He imagined her yielding and aroused, straining to get closer, reaching for him as they---
He forced the erotic images out of his mind. This was a marriage of practicality, he reminded himself. Nothing more. ~ within Chapter 6

"The Night Before Scandal" [Heart's Temptation Series, Book 7] by Scarlett Scott

Author's Book Description : What happens in a carriage doesn’t always stay in a carriage...

Lord Harry Marlow reluctantly attends a Christmas house party hosted by his brother and his sister-in-law, who also happens to be the woman he once longed to wed himself.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars. One girl in men’s clothes wins over the younger brother of a Duke and in a turn of events their lives entwine for good.

Made the Grade: Maximum Ride Series, Book 1

Format: Paperback | Pages: 413 | Release Date: May 2006 | Publisher: Warner Vision

"The Angel Experiment" [Maximum Ride Series, Book 1] by James Patterson

My Book Summary : Fighting for your life and protecting those around you isn't easy, especially when you are only 14 yrs old and the oldest in your group of misfits.

Max and her friends were genetically engineered so that they are 98% human and 2% other .... which make them possibly look like Angels if they someone saw them flying in the sky. However, they are far from it. They have wings and other abilities that are growing and expanding by the day.
  • "The Flock" :
    • Max - The leader. The 14 yr old mother hen of the group but also built to be the smartest and strongest out of them all. However, she recently learned that she has a "Voice" in her head that helps her out, yet not sure if it is a friend or foe.
    • Fang - 14 yrs old [younger then Max by 4 months]. The tall, dark, brooding, and silent type. Not sure what Fang's strengths are. But he is Max's best friend and she is slowly starting to think of him as more then just a boy.
    • Iggy - 14 yrs old [younger then Max by 6 months I think]. Tall. Strawberry-blonde hair. Blind. Great with creating items or taking them apart [i.e. bombs]. Also, great at breaking into places [i.e. picking locks]. And probably more.
    • Nudge - 10 or 11 yrs old. She's a motormouth! Just learned a new skill about looking into items more in depth.
    • The Gasman - 8 yrs old. Cute and sweet. Not sure what he can do yet...
    • Angel - 6 yrs old. Thinking she is kind of a prodigy since she's the youngest but has the most abilities it seems ... so far.
HOWEVER .... nothing is all hunky-dory in Max-land. The Erasers [other mutants meant to hunt them down and kill them] find them, attack, and kidnap Angel back to the lab they escaped from 4 yrs earlier. So, now its a mission to get her back before anything serious happens to her or worse...

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! I really wasn't sure what to expect at first with this book. But once I got started I couldn't stop! Kind of written with the same type of thing as the Darkest Powers Series, but with quite a few unusual twists! I'll be interested what the next book in the series, "School's Out-Forever", entails.

Book Teaser :
Fang and I exchanged a look. This was a little scary. Actually, a lot scary.
"Um, what do you mean, exactly?" I asked Angel. Okay, so she can pick up on most people's thoughts and feelings. But this was the first I'd heard of her sending a thought.
"I just asked her, in my mind," Angel said absently, straightening the bears' small white wings. "And she said okay. And she bought it for me. I'm going to call it Celeste." ~ within Chapter 92

Made the Grade: Shifters Series, Book 1

Format: Paperback | Pages: 618 | Release Date: February 2010 | Publisher: MIRA

"Stray" [Shifters Series, Book 1] by Rachel Vincent

My Book Summary : Have you ever seen a "black panther" before? Well, in this world there is no such thing as a "black panther", actually if you've seen one it is really a werecat (which is a type of shifter). Faythe is a werecat. Technically in her society, she's called a tabbycat, as she is a female werecat. Since there are so few tabbycat's in each werecat Pride across the US (about one, daughter, per Alpha), the tabbies usually choose who will be her husband and the next Alpha of her Pride. But five yrs ago Faythe ran away her boyfriend/fiancé (Marc) and her family so she wouldn't turn into a mother and house wife because she wanted more out of her life. Of course, they found her, and after they realized she wasn't going to change her mind, her dad (the Alpha) agreed to let her go to college. Faythe did so, moving on with her life as much as possible, hoping to never go back to her parents home, and dating other guys (all humans).

But now, five yrs later, her family has come to bring her back home whether she likes it or not because of some one is stealing up neighboring Pride's tabbies (one being her friend and the other her younger cousin). Once home she feels there's no need for her to be there and tries to talk her father into letting her leave, which gets her into having 24-hour guard service to make sure she doesn't plan on running for it. Also, with Marc being her father's second-in-command, he is around her all the time, making her not sure if she should still keep her distance or not from him. Especially when old feelings start to emerge again.

But things start getting worse fast, especially when they find one of the missing tabbies murdered .... her family helps the other Pride members search for the other tabby before it's too late. With everyone else dealing with the mess of the missing girls, Faythe manages to break away from everyone to think about everything that has happened in a short period of time for her, and falls right into a trap.

Will she manage to come out better then the other tabbies? Will the Pride members find Faythe and the other girl before it's too late, and deal justice to the ones responsible?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Faythe is a great strong character: fierce, determined, a protector to those she loves, though a bitch at times, with a small sweet side that is sometimes hard to find around her loud mouth. Her relationship with Marc is on rocky ground but it's hard not to root for them. Even though she happens to get into a bit of a love triangle (or should I say a square) with a friend she never considered before, and with a human boyfriend back at college. It definitely make me curious as to what book 2, "Rogue", might hold. =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
I let my face slip into the water, as much to escape Marc's tenderhearted babble as to rinse my hair, and I only came up when I had to either surface for a breath or drown.
"...can ignore me for as long as you want. For the rest of the day, or for the rest of the month. For five more years if that's what you need. But when you finally realize I'm right, I'll still be here waiting."
He stopped talking, but he wasn't gone. ~ within Chapter 15
