For a Good Time Call by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward 

Ever see For a good time call scribbled on the bathroom wall of a bar?  Sure you have.  Ever wonder what would happen if you had a few too many drinks and actually called the number?

Stay Right Here with Me by Willow Winters 

I can’t tell you how many mistakes I’ve made sitting in this very spot in this small town bar. Watching the iron doors swing closed as the broad-shouldered man who just walked in sits across from me, I already know he’s on that list of, “I shouldn’t have done that…”

The Beach R.S. Grey 

I’m not supposed to be on vacation with my best friend’s older brother. I’ve wanted him for so long, and now we’re unexpectedly alone in a tropical paradise.

Lucky Shot by Sarina Bowen 

Rookie sports agent Bess Beringer gets a real education on the night of her first glitzy New York business dinner. But the things she learns have nothing to do with roster rules or contract negotiation. Luckily, rookie hockey player Mark “Tank” Tankiewicz is a pro-level teacher…

WRAPPED UP IN READING’s REVIEW OF THE HUNTER

Excerpt

“Why?” I asked, blinking at him in confusion. I had two left legs and the coordination of roadkill. I couldn’t dance if my life depended on it. I’d tried dancing at the only party I’d ever gone to—sophomore year—and was subjected to such thorough humiliation. People took videos of me dancing and forwarded it to half my school. Saggy Sailor, they’d graffiti-ed on my locker. Apparently, my back looked hunched and droopy when I danced.

“Because…” He tilted his chin down, his voice low, smoldering. “You’re obviously bored, and my family is watching us, and I’m partial to fondling you.”

“It’s the dress,” I muttered.

“I’d actually prefer fondling you out of it.”

I sliced my gaze sideways, noticing that Aisling and Persy hadn’t picked up on my exchange with him. They were now watching a video, probably of the reality show they were arguing about. Even though Hunter was just after a friendly dance to show his family we were getting along, I couldn’t unglue my butt from my chair.

“No fondling.” I crossed my arms over my chest, buying time.

“No promises. Get up.”

“Did you tell anyone we live together?” I accused, my eyes narrowing into slits.

He stared at me, wide-eyed, mouth parted. “Negatory.”

“Did you tell anyone we were dating?”

“This is the lamest twenty-questions game I’ve ever participated in. No.

“Well, people are talking about us.”

“That’s what people do. They fill the air with useless words to entertain each other. It’s called gossip, and it sucks all the asses in the world. Doesn’t mean it was me. Our building employs more than a hundred people. All of them work for my father. That means he’s spreading whatever the hell he wants to spread.”

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****4.5 STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

No one had ever touched me the way Hunter Fitzpatrick did—like the world was ending and we had to cram all our passion into one defined moment.

 

 

I am convinced that no one is better at writing romances with bad boy alphas as good as L.J. Shen. Every time I read one of her books, I start off thinking the Hero is an irredeemable villain who only has wealth and looks going for him, but by the end of her stories my original opinion is usually reversed and I’ve fallen for the character and his flaws. It always takes a Heroine who seems to be his polar opposite to help the Hero reach his full potential.

”THE HUNTER”, is a spin-off of the ”All Saints High” series and one of her earlier books ”Sparrow”. Hunter Fitzpatrick is one of the popular boys who ruled Todos Santos along with Vaughn Spencer and Knight Cole. At nineteen, Hunter is driven by pure hedonistic pleasures. He winds up being wrapped up in an embarrassing sex scandal, which has his father dragging him back home to Boston. Hunter is given an ultimatum to stay sober and to curb all sexual escapades for the next six months or he will lose his inheritance and his future position as a high ranking executive in his family’s company. His dad has arranged for Hunter to have a roommate who is tasked with ensuring that he doesn’t go back to his old self-destructive ways.

Sailor is the daughter of one of Boston’s infamous hitmen, Troy Brennan, and world-famous chef, Sparrow Brennan. It would appear that history is about to repeat itself for Troy and Sparrow’s spirited daughter. She is forced to be in an ”arranged” relationship with Hunter, in return her campaign to win a spot in the upcoming Olympics as an archer is funded by the Fitzpatricks.

 

 

These two are like oil and water from the word go, but slowly they come to realize that they are kindred spirits. We find out there’s more to the sexually promiscuous playboy than his good looks and the tiny red-headed spitfire has done the unthinkable—she’s taken residence in Hunter’s heart. Will he be ready to be in a committed relationship by the time the six months are up? Or will Hunter go back to his old bad boy ways, leaving Sailor’s heart torn up in pieces?

Here are my overall ratings:
Hero: 4.5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 4
Angst: 4
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

THE HUNTER is currently available!

WRAPPED UP IN READING’s REVIEW OF ANGRY GOD

Excerpt

“How good are you at keeping secrets, Lenora Astalis?” His voice wrapped around my neck like a noose.

I wanted to cough. I needed to cough. He terrified me. I hated him with the heat and passion of a thousand blazing suns. He made me feel like a scaredy cat and a snitch.

“Oh, yes. If you’re coward enough to pretend you’re asleep, you’re good enough to keep a secret. That’s the thing about you, Astalis. I can smash you into dust and watch your grains dance at my feet. My little circus monkey.”

I might’ve hated Vaughn, but I hated myself more for not standing up to him. For not opening my eyes and spitting in his face. Clawing his unnaturally blue eyes out. Taunting him back for all the times he’d taunted all of us at Carlisle Prep.

“By the way, your eyelids are moving,” he said drily, chuckling.

He straightened up, his finger making a brief stop at the base of my spine. He snapped his fingers, making a breaking sound, and I nearly jumped out of my skin, letting out a gasp. I squeezed my eyes tighter, still pretending to sleep.

He laughed.

The bastard laughed.

Was he sparing me for the time being? Was he going to check in on me from now on? Retaliate if I opened my mouth? He was so unpredictable. I wasn’t sure what my life would look like in the morning.

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****FIVE STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

We were an unfinished business, personal and always walking the tightrope between love and hate. But we were always something, Len. We will always be something.

 

 

 

 

I have to admit, Vaughn has not been my favorite character in the All Saints High series. He’s always been a little too moody and aloof for my liking, and I was hoping that he’d get paired up with someone who was his complete opposite. Lenora wasn’t my first choice for his love interest. After having finished reading ”ANGRY GOD”, I can honestly say that I was completely wrong about everything. I didn’t expect to enjoy Vaughn and Lenora’s story as much as I did. I love a good enemies-to-lovers romance, but I am not a fan of the Hero being a complete douchebag. We learn that Vaughn isn’t inherently the cruel monster that he lets everyone believe that he is. There’s a reason why he keeps to himself a lot and doesn’t show emotions and that made this character have so much more depth than I ever expected of him.

 

 

 

Lenora was the perfect fit for Vaughn. She kept him on his toes and challenged him when no one else would dare to. She softened out his rough edges and he helped to make her the fighter that she grew up to be. That is what I consider a perfect match. I still hold Knight close to my heart but I now have a new appreciation of Vaughn Spencer as well.

 

 

 

 

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 4.5
Plot: 4.5
Angst: 5
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

ITUE - BT banner

“Romance masterpiece” – Kylie Scott, New York Times bestselling author

From USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling author L.J. Shen comes a new, contemporary romance with heart-wrenching twists and laugh-out-loud moments.

In The Unlikely Event is available now!

In the Unlikely Event AMAZON

Sometimes you meet people who are out of this world, so you make them a part of yours.

A one-night stand born from vengeance in a foreign land.

An explosive chemistry neither of us could deny.

We signed a contract on the back of a Boar’s Head Pub napkin that said if we ever met again, we would drop everything and be together.

Eight years and thousands of miles later, he’s here.

In New York.

And he’s America’s music obsession.

The intangible Irish poet who brings record executives to their knees.

The blizzard in my perfect, unshaken snow globe.

Last time we spoke, he was a beggar with no intention of becoming a king.

But a king he became, and now I’m his servant.

I’m not the same broken princess Malachy Doherty put back together with his callused hands.

I have a career I love.

A boyfriend I adore.

An apartment, a roommate, a life.

I changed. He changed, too.

But Mal kept the napkin.

Question is, will I keep my word?

Excerpt

When I finally come face to face with the street artist standing on the side of the pavement, his guitar case open and full of rolled-up notes and change, I understand why his grandfather told me I’d recognize him with the self-assurance of an avid believer.

I’ve never seen someone like him before.

He is beautiful, true, but that’s not what stands out to me. He is radiant.

It’s like his presence has a presence. He sucks the air out of everything in his vicinity, making it impossible not to look at him. Malachy is tailor-made for a huge, colossal heartbreak. Everything about him—his tattered jeans, filthy boots, white shirt, and leather jacket that was broken in decades ago—screams trouble. He looks like a seventies heartthrob. An icon. A Terry Richardson muse. Bruce Springsteen pre-fame.

His voice is like honey and warm spices. It lulls me into a place in my mind I’ve never been before, even though it’s far from beautiful. It is gruff, throaty, and smoky. When someone bumps my shoulder to get closer to him, I snap out of my reverie and realize what I’m listening to.

“One” by U2.

The coincidence is strange. I try to tell myself it’s nothing. This is Ireland. U2 is a national treasure.

His eyes are squeezed shut as he sings. It’s like no one exists other than him and his guitar. Something warm rushes through my skin, like a heat wave, and I shudder in delight.

Warmth.

I always thought there was something melancholy about street performers—the way people walk past them, ignoring their music, their art, their passion. But this guy, he’s the one doing the ignoring. The tables have turned. He’s got the crowd eating from the palm of his hand. Every woman here is under a thick, sweet spell. He’s got that Harry Styles quality that makes girls want to bed him and older women want to adopt him. The men are a cross between impatient, annoyed, and jealous. You can see it in the way they tap their feet, check their watches, nudge their wives and girlfriends to move it.

The song ends, and Malachy Doherty cracks his eyes open and stares directly at me, like he knew I’d be here. Like he watched me watching him through closed eyes. Disoriented—and for some reason wanting to do something, anything—I throw a bill into his guitar case and look away, realizing to my horror that I threw the fifty euros his grandpa gave me. Everyone around me murmurs and whistles. They think it was intentional. I can feel my face flaming red. I bet he thinks I want to sleep with him.

Do I? Probably. But should he know that? Hell no.
