Wagering On Wendy (Playing for Love #4) by Tara Crescent

Wagering On Wendy (A MFM Ménage Romance) (Playing For Love Book 4) - Tara Crescent

Tara Crescent is one of my FAVORITE Authors because I know no matter what the subject matter, or, whether it's contemporary or science fiction, it will be a STEAMY read, and this book is proof positive of that. Melt your panties HOT! The chemistry between Asher, Wendy, and Hudson was combustible.

I am loving this series, Wagering on Wendy is the fourth book in the "Playing for Love" series, each book is based on one of the friends that meet each Monday night for their Thursday night get together...yes their Thursday Night meeting for drinks and gossip is held on Monday nights....strange but it works. I have loved getting to know each of the women and although each of the women pop up in all of the books each story can be read as a stand alone makes it easier for jumping into the series at any time.

Wendy is a divorce lawyer and from her upbringing she doesn't trust men very much, that being said, she is going to learn how to trust Asher and Hudson because the three of them are perfect together! Asher and Hudson have their own reasons for not putting their hearts on the line, Hudson was previously married to a gold digger, and Asher...poor Asher was in love with a client and he was heartbroken when she was no longer in the picture. To say that all three of them have had events in their lives that left them with a wall around their hearts would be an understatement, BUT, when the walls finally start to fall....its a wonderful thing to witness

Seduction: A Bayfront Billionaire Novella (Bayfront Billionaire #2) by Calista Fox

Seduction: A Bayfront Billionaire Novella (Bayfront Billionaires) - Calista Fox

 

 

Seduction is the first book that I have read by Calista Fox even though she has been writing since 2004, I'm not sure why that is but I am very glad I was given the opportunity to read and Advanced Readers Copy of this book.

 

Lily has been hired to be the personal butler for both Jax and Lex on a temporary basis. Lily is thrilled to be hired because not only can she use the money that she will be paid for this two month contract but she is also a fan of their music. It had never even occurred to Lily that there would be anything other than a professional relationship between them, but once each of the men meet Lily they are craving more of her, and she is fantasizing about both of them.

 

I really enjoyed the chemistry between Jackson (Jax) Sterling, Lily Hart, and Lexington (Lex) Alexander. While it took some time for their relationship to begin you could definitely feel the heat that was simmering just waiting to turn to a full boil.

Second Circle Tattoos, the Complete Series by Scarlett Cole
 
Synopsis:
 
The tattoo artist with a heart of gold.
 
 
The playboy with his own hidden scars.
 
The international rockstar who longs for a home.
 
The mechanic with a dark past.
 
These are the heroes of Second Circle Tattoos. Trent, Cujo, Dred, Reid. And now all four books are together for the first time in a fabulous, low priced eBook box set featuring an exclusive epilogue. Why pick one book boyfriend when you can have all four?
 
The Strongest Steel
Harper Connelly never expected to find herself outside of a tattoo parlor at one in the morning. The scars that decorate her back are just one more reminder of things she'd rather forget, the past she wants to leave far behind her, but before she can move on, she needs him. Trent Andrews has his own reasons for specializing in inking over scars. And there's no way in hell he's going to turn Harper away. Being with Harper is like going ten rounds in the ring—exhilarating, powerful, and dangerous. She stirs feelings in him he thought were long gone... if he can only get past her carefully constructed defenses.
 
The Fractured Heart
Tattoo artist Brody "Cujo" Matthews knows how to keep things simple. In life and in love.That all changes when he meets Drea Caron, the definition of high maintenance and sizzling curves. And the one woman he doesn’t want to walk away from. Andrea "Drea" Caron is broke and tired. After years of caring for her ailing mom, she's at the end of her rope trying to manage the piling medical bills, two jobs, and a life placed on hold. She certainly doesn’t need the added frustration of a sexy playboy tattoo artist messing up her carefully balanced life. Too bad the universe has other ideas.
 
The Purest Hook
Rugged, hot, and rock hard, Dred Zander is exactly the type of man that normally sends Pixie running. Not dreaming about running her hands down his washboard abs...and lower. The lead singer and guitarist for the band Preload embodies trouble behind his quick smile and guarded eyes, and Pixie left trouble behind her years ago along with the name Sarah Jane Travers and the pathetic trailer her mom called home. But Dred has other ideas. Pixie's sweet hazel eyes, purple hair and kaleidoscopic tattoo of exotic flowers that swirl up her arm haunt his dreams, and he's ready to fight like hell to keep that feeling.
 
The Darkest Link
When her car breaks down off the side of a lonely highway far from her sunny Miami home, tattoo artist Lia never expected her very own white knight to ride up on the back of a barely street-legal motorcycle...and she never expected to fall for her dark savior. A bruised heart Lia is not looking for forever, and the hot mechanic, with his sexy scruff and shaggy hair, is simply impossible to resist. He's the perfect candidate for a mind-blowingly-perfect, no-strings-attached one-night stand. But when their fling becomes something more and Reid surprises her at her tattoo studio, Second Circle Tattoos, he's in for a shock—and a fist to the face—when his past and present collide.

Exclusive excerpt:
"So, I don't want you to get mad, Shortcake, but I have a surprise for you," Cujo said. Nervously, he ran his hand through his blond hair as the opulent elevator of the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas took him and his unsuspecting soon-to-be fiancée up to their room. He studied Drea's hazel eyes. Eyes that lit up when she smiled, that became red and blotchy when she cried, and went wide when she came apart in his arms like she had in bed that morning. Right now they looked at him suspiciously.
 
"More of a surprise than this morning when you woke me and told me I had an hour to pack and get ready?" She grinned at him and flicked her long-layered hair over her shoulder. "A surprise I am very grateful for. It’s a nice break before I go back for my second year of school." Confidently, Drea stepped toward him, lifted up onto her toes, and brushed her lips against his in a kiss which had him second guessing the surprise waiting for them in their room. He should have ensured it would be empty so he could throw her down on the bed, claim one more state on his places-I-fucked-Drea map. But that was going to have to wait, because first he had to get down on one knee and ask the one question he'd been so certain she'd say yes to when he’d put all of the plans in place. Now he was less than ten minutes away from doing the deed, he wasn't feeling quite so confident. He loved her with every fucking cell in his body and was certain she felt the same way. So why was asking her to confirm that with a ring so nerve-wracking?
 
He’d inked her name on his body. Hell, all the tattoos on his left arm were dedicated to her. So why should putting ink on a piece of paper, a marriage certificate, feel so much more important?

Until he sees her through the windows of the National Ballet, dancing, and suddenly the world doesn’t seem so dark.
 
Aleksandra Artemov ticks all the ballet boxes. Father a legendary Kirov dancer. Check. Prepping since birth for classical ballet. Check. Compulsive control over the food she eats. Check. Principal dancer at The National Ballet of Canada. Check. But what she craves is freedom.
 
She craves Jordan.
 
Everything about him should terrify her. His size, his tattoos, his edge. But he doesn’t. He stirs her very soul. Jordan has nothing but himself to offer her, and he's never been good enough for anyone. Can he figure out how to face his own demons before he loses his light for good?

Tied to His Betrayal: A Dirty Little Secrets Novel - Stacey Kennedy
Nadine's 4 star rating

 

WOW! This book took me on one heck of a ride, there were ups and downs, twists and turns, I never knew what was going to happen next.

This story picks up right where Bound Beneath His Pain left off, with Taylor standing at her best friend Allie's door, what she didn't expect is for Darius to be over visiting his sister, she is standing there soaking wet and bruised from a beating that her ex-boyfriend gave her looking right into the eyes of the man she had always wanted and had until he let her go.

 

Tied to His Betrayal (Dirty Little Secrets, #2) by Stacey Kennedy
 
 

I have to say that Darius was a bit hung up on their 10 year age difference for a while back when they were together years earlier, but he has finally seen the light and knew that she was always the one that got away. But the question is will he do what he needs to for her to be his again?

 

Tied to His Betrayal (Dirty Little Secrets, #2) by Stacey Kennedy
 
There is no denying the chemistry between Taylor and Darius, you could feel it through the pages. I loved the way he was protective of her and he did so many wonderful things for her that she never knew. Behind the tough exterior lays a teddy bear.
 
Tied to His Betrayal (Dirty Little Secrets, #2) by Stacey Kennedy
 

There is a lot going on in this story between Darius and Taylor but there is also some issues from his childhood that are brought to the forefront and we learn just what happened between his parents and how he wound up with custody of his little sister Allie. I loved getting to know their background a bit more, it definitely shed light on the man that Darius has become.

I am looking forward to the rest of the series I can't wait to learn more about the other members of the DC.

Off the Rails - Jill Sorenson
Nadine's 3 star rating

 

Off the Rails is the second book in the Border Patrol Series by Jill Sorenson, and in my opinion you really should read the first book Caught in the Act that way you have the backstory of how Ian and Maria met and what happened while they were together before the beginning of this book....which I unfortunately hadn't. That being said I was able to follow along without a problem but I think having the back story would have given me more as far as the characters relationship and the chemistry between them.

Most of this book took place while riding on "La Bestia" which is a freight train that travels along the coast of Mexico from its southernmost border with Guatemala north to the United States boarder. It was risky and things don't go as easy as either one had hoped it would.

 

Off the Rails by Jill Sorenson
 
Maria had entered the US illegally and somehow got tangled up with the Mexican cartel which is how Ian get re-connected with her. Ian is an undercover ICE agent on the trail of a criminal that Maria has ties with and he's hoping that she will lead him to the man in question. Though neither of them can deny the connection they once had and the chemistry that hasn't faltered in the four years they have been apart, he is there to do a job and that is his main focus.
 
Off the Rails by Jill Sorenson
 
I liked the chemistry between Maria and Ian and again I think I would have felt more connected to them if I had read the first book, that being said I do plan on going back and reading Caught in the Act at some point in the not to distant future.

Intended for Bristol: A Second Chances Novel - L.P. Dover
Nadine's 4 star rating

 

 

Jaxon is the bad boy that rivals all others, this sexy Kicker for the Carolina Cougars just doesn't know when enough is enough. We have seen him try to steal his teammates girlfriend in Catching Summer by arranging for the ex-girlfriend of the player to be found in his bed by the current girlfriend (that Jax wanted for himself) and had a used condom on the floor to look like they had sex...seriously who does stuff like that?? Jaxon that's who! So he's moved on and is trying to curb his outrageous behavior...like that's even possible...anyway, we saw that he can be a true friend to those he cares about like Hayden Hunter who we met in Defending Hayden along with her boyfriend and his teammate Derek. Now this is Jax's story and I had no clue what to expect.

 

Intended for Bristol (Second Chances, #8) by L.P. Dover

 

When Jaxon met Bristol he knew there was something about her he wanted, so he sets out to hook-up with her because that's his MO, just hooking up and moving on, then when he finds out that she's the sister of the new quarterback on the team that he doesn't like he thinks that this would be a perfect way to get back at him. Typical Jax, is he ever going to change?

 

Intended for Bristol (Second Chances, #8) by L.P. Dover
 
There is a lot of angst in this story because hey, its Jax did you expect anything less? But besides all of the craziness going on with Jax and his crazy ass one night stand turned stalker, I really liked Jax and Bristol together, they were good for one another.
 
Intended for Bristol (Second Chances, #8) by L.P. Dover
 
Each of the books in this series (Second Chances) can be read as standalone's but there is character overlapping so if you want the full immersion of the series so you know all the background of each of them start with the first book, otherwise feel free to jump on in with Jax and Bristol.

Not my cup of tea.

Dirty For Me - Jackie Ashenden
Nadine's 2 star rating

 

 

I am usually a big fan of Jackie Ashenden books but I just couldn't get into this story. Yes there is cheating, which I don't particularly like, but it was more than just that. I enjoy the bad-boy gets the good-girl stories but I think this bad-boy just wasn't my cup of tea. To say that I didn't like Zee would be an understatement, I really, really didn't like him, his dirty mouth was a major turnoff it wasn't sexy as I am sure the author was hoping it would come across, just to vulgar for my taste. That's not to say that someone else may not like it but for me...yeah no thanks!

 

Now as far as my like/dislike for Tamara, she's outright cheating on her boyfriend, they live in different states but they do see each other often and she knows that marriage is probably in their near future yet she gets involved with Zee without breaking off her relationship first. Then she feels bad about it for maybe a second or two and decides she doesn't care because she wants to be with Zee. Fine then please break off your relationship with your current boyfriend, and hey maybe let Zee know what he's getting into before you go any further.

 

OK, enough of my ranting. There were some things that I did enjoy about this book, first and foremost is the group of friends that Zee has, they are more like his family than his blood relatives and they have a great bond that I would like to find out more about. I am going to continue with the series and I look forward to reading Gideon's story because I am sure that man has one heck of a past and I know that when he and Zoe finally get together it will be unbelievable!

Kane & Nora get their story!

Becoming a Legend - Sarah  Robinson
Nadine's 4 star rating

 

 

This is the third book in the Kavanagh series and we get Kane Kavanagh & Nora Hannigan story...yes! These two have been butting heads since Killian, Kane's twin, and Fiona, Nora's Best Friend, got together in Saving a Legend. I had loved watching these two go at it and knew their story would be a good one and I was not disappointed at all.

 

Becoming a Legend (Kavanagh Legends #3) by Sarah Robinson

 

 

This story had a couple of twists that were unexpected but overall it added to the character of both Kane and Nora. The bad boy gets the good girl in this sexy, sweet, story of two people finding love when they weren't even looking for it.

 

Becoming a Legend (Kavanagh Legends #3) by Sarah Robinson

 

 

We have two Kavanagh brother's left to get their story, Jimmy & Quinn, and maybe we will be lucky enough to get a third book about their cousin. I hope we wont have to wait to long to get our hands on them. All of the Kavanagh men are strong, protective, loving and most of all caring; you can tell a lot about a man in the way he treats his mother and these boys worship the ground their momma walks on.

She's more than just the Nanny!

Hard to Hold: A Hard to Play Novel - Katie Rose
Nadine's 3 star rating

 

 

Logan Hart is on the road quite a bit with his Professional Soccer team so when he back home he likes to kick back and have a few beers with his friends & teammates, and that is exactly what he is doing when his former hookup comes into the bar and plops a baby carrier down on the table and tells Logan that Cinnamon is his daughter and now he has to raise her. First off I was appalled that someone would do such a thing, but who am I kidding crap like that happens all the time. Poor Logan has no idea what to do next so he calls in reinforcements...his sister!

 

Hard to Hold (Hard to Play, #1) by Katie Rose
 
Isabella Bennett loves her job as a nanny, she gets to help show new parents how to care for the newest addition to their families along with helping mold the foundation that child needs in order to grow and strive in life. When Isabella is told that her new position would be to care for a soccer players child she's not to thrilled with the idea but she's a professional so she will do what needs to be done to show him the ropes and then be on her way. Well of course it doesn't go as either of them had expected because the chemistry is amazing between them.
 
Hard to Hold (Hard to Play, #1) by Katie Rose
 
 
There is some angst of course but it's not over the top and it was really something that most people would have to deal with if they were in the same situation. I really enjoyed this sweet and sexy romance and I look forward to reading more books in this series.

Crazy About Love - Cassie Mae
Nadine's 3 star rating

 

 

Alec and Theresa have been friends for years and Alec always had feelings for her he even told her that he loved her...but then he took it back....strange yes but you'll understand once you read the story.

Theresa is holding a fundraising bachelor auction and she calls Alec desperate for him to fill a spot in the auction for someone that bailed. Things don't go the way either of them thought they would and it leads us on a journey of funny mishaps and questionable acts. I found myself laughing out loud a few times reading this book.

I enjoyed the relationship that Theresa and Alec had, it was a true friendship that developed into more during a natural progression.

This is the third book in the series and it can be read as a standalone, which is what I did, but I feel that if I had read the first two books I would have known more about the secondary couples and I would have been able to watch the progression of Alec & Theresa's friendship evolve into something more over time.

May-December Romance

Soul Deep: An I-Team After Hours Novella (Volume 2) - Pamela Clare
 
 
I almost forgot how much I enjoyed this series, I really need to get back to it and not wait another two years to do it.
 
Nadine's 4 star rating
 
If you read Skin Deep then you know Jack, he is Nate's father, and if you've read Striking Distance then you should remember Janet FBI Special Agent Killeen and the fact that Jack threw her off his property while she was helping with the investigation of Laura Nilsson's kidnapping. To say that their encounter this time around was different would be a mild statement.
 
Soul Deep (I-Team, #6.5) by Pamela Clare
 
Janet was driving to a resort for some much needed R&R when her car swerves off the road and becomes stuck in the snow, thankfully she is prepared because it takes almost 24 hours before Jack West finds her....she plowed into a fence on the Cimarron Ranch which is the West Family's Ranch. Jack was much friendlier this time around, maybe it was the circumstances in which they met or maybe it was the fact that she was a damsel in distress, either way it was nice to see that he would treat her with respect and care especially after she had been through with being shot.
 
Soul Deep (I-Team, #6.5) by Pamela Clare
 
I loved Jack and Janet together and their 18 year age difference didn't factor into anything, it was mentioned a couple of times but it wasn't harped on, but what I loved most was the fact that Jack didn't treat Janet any different because she now needed a cane to assist her in walking he let her do things on her own and only lent a helping hand when she asked for it. I also enjoyed that Nate, Megan, and Emily were in this book and we were able to catch up with the couple and see what changes were happening with them.
 
Soul Deep (I-Team, #6.5) by Pamela Clare
 
Soul Deep (I-Team, #6.5) by Pamela Clare
 
This wasn't entirely a love story in fact a major part of the story was about someone shooting Jack's prized stallion right there on the ranch. YIKES! Janet was able to help out in an unofficial capacity with the investigation and she never stepped on any toes she was mindful that this was not her ranch or even her investigation but it was great seeing her back doing a bit of what she loved before she was shot nearly a year earlier.

Not your typical rich guy meets poor girl story

Hooked - Brenda Rothert
Nadine's 3 star rating

 

 

Miranda is working two jobs to put herself through college to say that she has no time for a relationship would be an understatement, but when Jake the Hot Hockey Player starts flirting with her can she believe that he really wants her and not another notch on his bedpost? 

 

Hooked by Brenda Rothert
 
Jake is having his place renovated so he is living at hotel where Miranda is a housekeeper and after the first time they meet while she is cleaning his room things don't exactly go well. Miranda is convinced that he is going to have her fired but is completely taken by surprise when her boss tells her that Jake insists that she is the only one that he wants cleaning her room. I have to mention that Miranda's boss is a total ass and I never really understood why he was always getting on her about things.

 

Hooked by Brenda Rothert
 

I really enjoyed the way Jake and Miranda interacted and flirted with one another even though they both new that they shouldn't be....well, I need to correct that statement because Miranda is the only one of the two that had doubts because if she got caught her boss would fire her. Jake had his own reasons that he shouldn't be getting involved with anyone and that had to do with the fact that he was "dating" the hockey team's owners' daughter but he didn't care they would just need to keep it a secret. Yep he sort of was...but not really dating someone. If CHEATING is a big no-no for you, you really don't need to worry about that with this story.

 

Hooked by Brenda Rothert

 

This was a sweet story of the rich famous athlete falling for the quite girl that works hard to put herself through college while sharing a tiny apartment with her sister. This may seem like your typical story of rich guy meets poor girl but it's not, it's oh so much more!

From Debutante to Badass!

Make It Hurt (Texas Bounty) - Jackie Ashenden
Nadine's 4 star rating

 

 

Nora is a badass bounty hunter that we met in Take Me Deeper but we didn't know is that she is a Texas Debutante. Yep this badass chick was a debutante, personally I find that a bit hard to believe because WOW what a 180, two totally different lives how does one go from frilly dresses and dances to chasing down the bad guys and waving a gun and badge around?

 

 

Make It Hurt (Texas Bounty, #2) by Jackie Ashenden
 
We find out quite a bit about her past thanks to her run in with her ex-boyfriend...and no he wasn't one of the Texas elite he was from the wrong side of the tracks. After they broke up eight years ago, Smith went into the Army but now he is the Prez of the Graveyard Ministry MC, and Nora is looking to bring his VP in Garrett, which is something that Smith has no intention of letting her do.....well, not without a little time spent doing the horizontal mambo.
 
Make It Hurt (Texas Bounty, #2) by Jackie Ashenden
 
I loved Smith & Nora, their chemistry was great and their desperation for one another was exquisite.

Off Limits: An Aces Hockey Novella - Kelly Jamieson
 

Andrew and Jenna have a special relationship and such great chemistry it was no secret that they would get together. But the thing you need to know is that it was a rough road for them, how do you go to live with your best friends’ family during your teenage years and promise the dad that you will stay away from the only daughter and then go back on your word? Well, you don't and that is the thing that Andrew has always struggled with.

 

Christmastime is here so the entire family has gathered to celebrate the holiday, the one thing that no one expected was for Jenna to show up with a boyfriend. The asshat as he is so fondly called by Andrew and Jenna's brothers was such a dull person, I was actually hoping one of the brothers would toss him out on his a$$ but they all behaved nicely, well, as nicely as brothers can. ;)

 

This was a fun read with some steamy scenes and a great addition to the series.

 

The part of the book that had me laughing out loud was when they were playing a game called Dirty Mind, I have never heard of this game but now that I have read about it I will be ordering it. HYSTERICAL!!!
