"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,

When I convince my overprotective papa to let me go off to college, neither of us expect that my roommates will be three super studly guys. But a mixup at the housing office turns out to be the best thing to happen to me. Cash, Tripp and Noah awaken different parts of me, and it isn't long before I gladly trade my innocence for the ultimate pleasure—being with three men at once.
They’re all so different, but being with all of them makes me feel whole. I finally see a happy ending for myself—until my father finds out about my boyfriends.
How do I decide?
Should I be Daddy's little girl, or Cash, Noah, and Tripp's woman?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, an accidental mix-up lands Riley to be living in a co-ed dormitory with three male roommates. But when she already promised her father that she wouldn’t get involved with any guys while to prioritize her schooling ... what is a girl to do?

This is another novel that I reread because of losing my original review and book rating (find out the whole story on my blog), yet I’m glad I did. As I didn’t remember all of the plotline before I reread this novel so that helped in the enjoyment of it all. Yet even with what I could’ve recalled I still enjoyed myself.

Riley is a girl finding out who she wants to be as a woman and getting out of her parent’s expectations for her. In doing so, Riley gets to know her roommates a whole lot more and all three come with their own baggage. Cash is a former marine who is dealing with PTSD. Noah is still getting over a recent breakup. While Tripp is a sweet geek who accidentally gets himself into trouble. At first glance, a relationship with any or all of them seems a little doomed from the start. However, I liked how

"Jessie's Harem" by Mandy Rosko

Author's Book Description : Ghouls just wanna have fun...

Jessie needs an army. One made up of the strongest alphas she can find if she is to kill a powerful sorcerer. The former master who created her.

She needs warriors, both wolf and dragon alike for this tricky mission. Easier said than done because dragons and wolves don't get along! Luckily, Jessie's a ghoul with succubus powers and she doesn't have to look far to find a few scrumptious men who are the perfect candidates...

She just didn't expect to have so much fun making the growly warriors do her bidding, though they don't seem to mind when play time rolls around.

As things heat up in the bedroom, complications arise. The long history of fighting between dragons and werewolves is more challenging than Jessie expected. To ensure her freedom, and their cooperation, she might have to, horror of horrors, release them from her spell.

Trusting four angry warriors to stay on their own free will is a new experience for Jessie. Because, whether she wins her freedom or not, Jessie is used to a solitary, loveless life, and not convinced she's worthy of four knights in shining armor.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! This is a reread for me because this novel I had read in November of 2019 and before I had posted my official review/rating, I had lost it (find out the whole story on my blog). Therefore, this novel was chosen as a reread because I did remember enjoying it before, didn’t remember all of the plotline – which made it, so I got to enjoy it more, and I was in the mood for a paranormal polyamorous romance to read.

What I found was this novel held up all my expectations, except for the end. Though I cannot say I loved this novel the whole way through, I did thoroughly

"Triple #teXXXt" [The FlirtChat Series, Book 2] by Sarwah Creed
(Originally published as "Triple Sext" [Book 4 in the Accidental Stepbrother Series], which is what it was called when this reviewer read it.)

Author's Book Description : Is my perfect match on campus one guy or three?
I had a filthy fantasy. One so bad that the night before going to college, I had the wildest dream about the all-star football player falling at my feet. I was brought down to reality as I soon found out that life at NYU didn’t turn out the way that I hoped. All the social clubs that I joined were a bust and my roommate turned out to be far from my friend, but a bully that I needed to get as far away from as possible.
Suddenly, I got a text.
Not any ordinary text, but one so dirty that it drove my mind wild.
It messed with me.
So, I responded.
And that’s how the texting relationship started and as the texts got dirtier there was only one thing on my mind... who was this guy?
Or was it three guys?

The message tone changed depending on the time of day.
The ones I got first thing in the morning, were so hot that they could turn steel bars into pools of molten metal.
The ones in the afternoon were even better but just... different.
And the texts I got in the evening were so damn dirty I could barely sleep without putting my hands between my thighs.
They were so addictive that I agreed to meet this Casanova of the text world. I had one worry, though.
What if it was three guys?
What was I going to do with all three of them at once?


Author´s Note:
Triple #teXXXt was previously called Triple Sext. It has no new content and it is a stand-alone reverse harem with a mixture of bullying, romance, humor, and even suspense. There are multiple partner scenes, so make sure that not only is your Kindle ready, but you have a towel nearby too as you read this standalone HEA.

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! A girl goes to college to turn into the woman she wants to be and gets a whole lot more than she originally bargained for in terms of love and friendship.

This is another reread that I reread because I lost my original book review & rating. However, it is one that I was really excited to read as I remembered really enjoying it when I first read it in September 2019. It is not a bully romance for me because the bully in this romance is not the hero(es), yet it does have a bit of a twisted plot in terms of how Celia gets involved with the identical triplet brothers (Colin, Grant, & Keith).

With that being said,

"Cramming Her Candy Bag" by Farrah Paige

Author's Book Description : I was starting to think my boyfriend was a waste of time.
And I had to learn the hard way that he wasn’t worth it.

When he cheated on me with two girls, I finally got the message.
At least I have a great job.
My four HOT bosses are so good to me.
Too bad the only way I'll ever be with them is in my dreams.
That was until the office Halloween party.
They each had something to tell me. And they all had something to give me.
Is it the dress or my new found confidence that draws them irresistibly to me?
I don't want to come between them, but it will break my heart to choose.

How does one girl choose between four successful and competitive men?
Could getting everything I want be the worst thing that could happen to me?

Cramming Her Candy Bag is a full length standalone reverse harem romance in which four men focus on pleasuring one lucky lady emotionally and physically - no swords cross and it's all about her. It doesn't have a cliffhanger or any cheating. It does have a very happy ever after, though.

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. Not long after breaking up with her boyfriend, Melanie finds out how a sexual relationship would be with her four diverse bosses. But will it lead to something more or just a night of passionate fun?

This is one of the novels that I am rereading as I had lost my previous written review of it ... but I do recall that I had loved its cover and I had thought that this novel’s plotline held a touch of fantasy in it, especially in regard to Melanie finding her Halloween costume at the Used Clothing type of Store. And for all of my feelings on that still holds true as I enjoyed those aspects of this novel. HOWEVER ...

"Hanna And The Hot Hockey Gods" by Dizzy Hooper

Author's Book Description : Three bad boy hockey players. One figure skater in need of some stress relief. Let the games begin…

As a last minute addition to the figure skating team, I knew I was in for some hazing, but this is ridiculous. I walk in on my roommate doing the deed on my bed.

With nowhere to go, I end up wandering the halls, only to run into three super hot members of the men's ice hockey team. There's the team captain, Zeke, who gives me the chills. Sensitive Aaron. And filthy-mouthed, uber-competitive Brent.

These bad boy forwards have a reputation—and a goal. They want a girl to celebrate their win with.

Who am I to say no?

It's just a night of no-strings fun. They bring my body to heights I never knew were possible, and I'm pretty sure I rock their world.

Turns out, hockey players are a superstitious bunch. If they win again, they want me back.

Before I know it, we're celebrating together after every game. I'm not sure if it's the stress relief or the new confidence they've given me, but I'm skating better than I ever have before. We all have gold in our sights.

But the games are coming to a close. There's no future for an underdog figure skater and three hot hockey gods out there in the real world.

Or is there…?

"Hanna And The Hot Hockey Gods" is a complete, STANDALONE reverse harem romance, featuring dirty talking alpha males and a guaranteed HEA. No cheating, no cliffhangers!

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! Hanna recently got added to as a last-minute spot on the US women’s figure skating team for something like the Olympics, and it seems everyone really doesn’t want her there. Yet after an unusual exchange with her roommate Hanna meets three hockey players that just might change her life, or at least this week-long event, for good ... if only she’s willing to make the best of it all ...

If you are looking for HOT ultra-smutty (sometimes gangbang style) read that also has a LOT OF HEART too, then this is the novel is the perfect pick for you!

"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

"Homecoming for Christmas" [Christmas Mountain Series, Book 1] by Ciara Knight
(Originally published as "Homecoming in Christmas Falls" Book 1 of Return to Christmas Falls Series which is what it was called when this reviewer read it.)

Author's Book Description : Eight years after fleeing Christmas Mountain because of a high school prank gone wrong, Ashley Brooks receives a mysterious letter from her mentor asking her to come home. She arrives to face all she left behind—her family, her friends, and the rich boy she’d loved who would never date the girl from the wrong side of town.

Brent Donnelly, high school jock, brainiac, and dutiful son did everything right until the day Ashley returns to Christmas Mountain. With one look at the girl who got away he questions all his life choices, including following in his father’s footsteps in the family business.

Faced with a potentially devastating decline of tourism in their hometown, Brent and Ashley must work together to save the magic of their town, but when Ashley discovers he still has feelings for her best friend she must finally face the real reason she left Christmas Mountain—to try to heal her broken heart.

My Book Review : 2 out of 5 stars. The day of Ash’s (Ashley) high school graduation, she and her best group of friends pull a prank that lands them in jail. That incident changes her life drastically as she moves away from home without telling anyone, but her parents, the following morning and has stayed away from her hometown ever since. Now about eight years later, she returns home at the request of her high school mentor and in the process pick up the pieces of past relationships with friends and more. Yet, will she be able to reconcile with her friend and longtime crush, Brent, or will their insecurities and other people keep them apart for good?

I had been drawn into this novel’s book description from the beginning but what sealed me reading it was when I was looking for a novel to read for the 12 Days of Cozmas read-a-thon. And at first glance I thought this novel was perfect for me.

My Book Review : For this full book I give it 3.6 out of 5 stars! I had heard a LOT about Alexa Riley, both good and bad, so when I read this anthology I picked it up because I wanted to read their work while knowing that I was getting everything that I wanted to read without the extras. Therefore, I was so happy that I enjoyed each novella as much as I did. Though not all of the novellas were complete winners I liked all the characters and enjoyed seeing the evolution this little town had in terms of everyone finding relationships. In addition, having all the novellas be fairytale retellings is what I was here for the most and kept me reading them all. If these novellas ever get released again I will say that I do recommend this series anthology and its novellas to those who are wanting paranormal erotic romance quick reads.

"The Three Bad Wolves" [Fairytale Shifters Series, Book 5] by Alexa Riley

Author's Book Description : Finn, Flint, and Forest have spent their lives looking for their mate. The three brothers have been through everything together, and seeing the rest of their family pair off has been hard to watch. But one day, deep in the woods, a small bunny crosses their path when the three of them are in wolf form. To their surprise, they finally find what they’ve been looking for, but it just so happens they all find it at once.

Luna Hare lost her family long ago, and she’s been traveling to different shifter villages, trying to find one that is the right fit. Secretly she’s been hoping to meet another bunny family and possibly find her mate. She never expected that when she’d come to Gray Ridge, she’d not only find a mate, she would find three. Three enormous wolves that look hungry, and not for food.

Warning: Bunnies like to make babies, so it’s a good thing she’s got three wolves lined up and waiting to take a turn.

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! In the middle of a snowstorm, Luna finds that she's mated to not one, not two, but THREE wolf shifters. So, what a cute little bunny shifter to do but lead them on a merry chase. 😉

"Finding Snow" [Fairytale Shifters Series, Book 4] by Alexa Riley

Author's Book Description : Koda's found his sister, Winnie, and now he's made a life for himself in Gray Ridge, Colorado. As a bear shifter, he's naturally a loner, and with so few females around, he's resigned to never finding his mate. But when he stumbles upon a woman in the woods, his whole world changes.

Snow's been on the run and has made a makeshift family with a band of seven wanderers. While resting in the woods and waiting for them to come back, something big finds her.

When Koda and Snow collide, they realize their stories are woven together more tightly than they could have imagined. Will the truth break their mates bond? Or will it bind them closer together?

Warning: This fairy-tale shifter story is full of alpha sweetness with a side of growly bear. What's not to love?! If you love a classic story with a dirty twist, then get your click on!

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! A sweet take on the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs novel. Snow (Angie) is a human who has been living in the shifter world for as long as she can remember in one form or another, but most recently with her "adopted" wolf shifter brothers. Wanting some time away, she goes out to play in the snow and meets her mate, Koda. But Snow is keeping secrets and once they come out it could ruin the budding relationship that is growing between them. Will they be able to work it out?

"Marry Your Billionaire" [The Billionaire's Reluctant Bride Series, Book 1] by Cynthia Savage

Author's Book Description : A CEO billionaire needs a wife to save his image. A desperate college student needs her trust fund to get her degree. A reality TV romance could solve all their problems.

Six years ago, Madelyn Knightly walked away from her trust fund, her Hollywood producer father, and the expectation that she would join the family business. Avoiding handsome playboys with hidden agendas was just an added bonus. Now one semester shy of graduation, she is shocked to discover her scholarship has lost its funding.

Her estranged father is having problems of his own. A contestant on his latest reality TV series has cancelled a week before shooting.

His solution?

Madelyn gets her trust fund back if she stands in as a potential marriage candidate for the dating series Marry Your Billionaire. Twenty women competing for one arrogant guy. Not Madelyn's cup of tea. Agreeing to this proposition sucks her back into the world she happily broke ties from.

But no trust fund equals no college degree.

Brody Prescott, CEO and owner of an online dating company, has recently been pegged a heartless playboy by a disgruntled female after a disappointing date. To save his company and his reputation as an honest businessman, the billionaire must prove to everyone he isn't the naughty bad boy they believe him to be.

His solution?

Become the first bachelor on Marry Your Billionaire and land himself a wife. Unfortunately, the woman who intrigues him the most wants to be eliminated. His careful planning did not include wooing a reluctant bride.

If Brody can't convince Madelyn he's interested in happily ever after, he risks losing his reputation and the only woman he has ever truly loved.

"Marry Your Billionaire" is Book 1 in the Billionaire’s Reluctant Wife series by Swoony Award-winning author Jennifer Griffith and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Savage.

All the books in the series are standalone romantic comedies with hunky heroes, hilarious twists, and clean-but-undeniable chemistry.

My Book Review : DNF. Fate and circumstance throw Madelyn (Midge) and Brody together, while Brody finds ways to keep Midge with him ... forever.
