"Sugar & Spice" [Spicetopia Series, Book 1] by Phoebe Alexander

Author's Book Description : A billionaire undercover boss.
A single mom who’s totally off limits.
Temptation never looked so sweet...


Cy Sweet has always been the black sheep of his family, which is probably why he was chosen to go Undercover Boss in Sweetopia, his family’s theme park. Enticed by his father’s bribe, he dons an apron to serve pastries in Cotton Candy Castle, one of the park’s most popular attractions.

He’s tempted to blow his cover when he meets The Red Velvet Queen. Sure, she’s a costumed character and the jewels in her crown are fake, but she’s absolutely breathtaking. His desire only grows when he invents a baker’s dozen reasons to visit her every day…enough visits to discover her sweetness comes with a side of spice.

But they’re both in disguise. The Queen is actually single mom Jolie Cox, who relentlessly struggles to make a living for herself and her sons. And Cy is actually her boss, not to mention heir to the corporate empire she despises.

What will happen when their identities are finally unmasked?

Sugar & Spice is Book 1 of the Spicetopia Series. Though the series can be read in any order, here is the preferred reading order:
Book 1: Sugar & Spice (Cy and Jolie's story)
Book 2: Virtue & Vice (Moon and Katja's story)
Book 3: Fire & Ice (Neve and Enya’s story)
Book 4: Naughty & Nice (Micah and Natalie’s story)
Book 5: Dares & Dice (Tyler and Makenna's story)
Book 6: Loyalty & Lies (Calvin and Paisley's story -- crossover with Eastern Shore Swingers Series)

Idolizing In: Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas

Format: Paperback | Pages: 372 | Release Date: March 2010 | Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks

"Smooth Talking Stranger" by Lisa Kleypas

My Book Summary : Ella has worked hard for what she has, which is a good life with her boyfriend Dane in Austin, Texas, a career that she is very happy with, and good friends. But after avoiding talking to her mother and sister for nearly two years, she takes a call from her mother asking her to come to Houston immediately since Ella's younger sister (Tara) has just left her son at Ella's mother's place and she can't keep him. Now Ella has to find out where her sister is, take care of a baby (even though she has never done so before), and take control of the situation and try to fix it.

Once she gets there, she finds that her sister left a birth certificate with the baby. Now she knows that the baby's name is Luke, he's only a week old, and there is no father's name listed on the birth certificate. After making a few calls to her cousin, whom Tara has been living with, Ella has her write up a list as to whom Tara has been with within the past year -- since she wants the father of this baby to take responsibility even if Tara doesn't want him too. The first name on that list is billionaire playboy, Jack Travis.

Jack is a ladies’ man, with no plans in settling down soon, but as soon as he meets Ella & Luke in his office's lobby he realizes how cute she is and he's determined to help her out by putting her up in a hotel until she finds another place to stay, and even agreeing to a paternity test (even though he swears to have been on one date with Tara but never sleeping with her). Now even though the truth comes out that Jack is telling the truth, he keeps helping Ella out through this trial time of raising a baby and straightening out her sister's mess, especially since she doesn't seem to be getting any support from her boyfriend or her mother.

However, Ella has had a hard time growing up and makes a point of not getting close to anyone but Luke seems to sweep under her defenses, with Jack not far behind. Will Ella be able to put everything to rights again? Will she realize what she has before it's too late? Or will she run back to her old life and boyfriend the first chance she gets ....

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! This story of Ella & Jack I just LOVED!! The way he just swooped in and took care of her, even when she didn't want it, was wonderful and soo sweet to read! I will say that when she's doing the hunt on who's Luke's father and she's confronting a man who is described to be blond ... I knew exactly who Luke's father was before the 5 or more chapters later confirmed it. Basically for my first time reading something/anything by Lisa Kleypas I got to say I was impressed! I'll definitely have to check out more of her books.

Book Teaser(s) :
Teaser Tuseday for this book...
"Where's he going to stay?"
"With me, of course."
Jack was quiet for a long moment. It might have been my imagination, but I thought his breathing had acquired a rough edge. "I can get him a hotel room," he finally said. "I'll pay for it."
"Why would you ... what? ..."
"I don't want him staying overnight with you."
"But he's my---" I stopped and stared at him in disbelief. "What is this? Jack, I live with him." ~ within Chapter 14

Feasted On: Baby Bonanza by Maureen Child

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 471 KB | Release Date: September 2008 | Publisher: Silhouette Desire

"Baby Bonanza" by Maureen Child

My Book Summary : A little over a year ago Jenna had a fling with her boss, Nick, while she was working on one of his cruise ships. However, when he found out that she was his employee instead of a guest, like he originally thought, he broke up their relationship and fired her. Since then Jenna's life has change and now she's back on one of Nick's cruise ships again, as a guest, on a mission to inform him that he is the father of her twin boys!! Over the year apart she has tried to contact him to let him know but he never returned/responded to any of her emails or phone calls, so a face-to-face is the way it's gotta be.

Yet, now that she is here she's as nervous as hell, but as soon as she confronts Nick she thinks that it'll all be over and okay ... he'll believe her, will be fine to just pay child support, and then they both can get back to their lives. However, it doesn't seem to work that way. For one, Nick doesn't believe her at all so they need to take a DNA test to be sure, which is fine since she expected as much but now she has to wait a couple of days before the results come in and Nick doesn't want her out of his sight. Then to top it off he already admits to himself (before the results come) that if they are his sons then he is going to want more then just to pay child support, he'll want time with them too and if he thinks Jenna won't allow that then he'll take them away from her.

While the waiting is on for the results both Jenna and Nick realizes things about each other that they didn't know last year, and get closer together. Could this mean a happily-ever-after for them or will they each feel like being together is a big mistake so they'll just do what's right for the kids?

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! =0) In truth I am surprised I enjoy this book as much as I did, and for a quick read, it was a great book!! The connection between Nick and Jenna is great to read, and seeing how they grow as characters in such a short time is fun too. This is one romance novel I who recommend to everyone! Especially right now that it's FREE through Amazon.com!

Book Teaser(s) :
"You were dancing, alone in the dark," he said as if she hadn't spoken at all. As if he were prompting her memory. "You didn't notice me, so I watched you as you swayed to the music, tipping your head back, your hair sliding across your shoulders."
"Nick..."
"You has a smile on your face," he said, his voice lower now, deeper, and she wouldn't have thought that was possible. "As if you were looking up into the eyes of your lover."
Jenna swallowed hard and shifted uneasily as her body blossomed with heat. With need. "Don't do this, Nick..."
"And I wanted to be the lover you smiled at. The lover you danced with in the dark." ~ within Chapter 6
