Synopsis

The first time I saw Alessandro, two things came to mind. 
Sexy and naked. 
You get the idea.
Thanks to him, my flight from hell became the best one I’d ever been on. 
Turned out, the engaging, gorgeous passenger, was my new professor…and the ultimate jerk.
Rude, prick, cocksucker, were a few choice names I’d love to call him. 
How was this offensive man the same human I’d met on the plane?
His soul must’ve been invaded by demons after leaving the airport. 
To think I’d almost joined the mile high club with him. Almost. 
Everywhere I went he was there raining more insults on me.
Until I saw him with his adorable mini look-alike. 
That charming little boy melted my heart. 
Before I knew it, I’d accepted his son’s invitation to play soccer.
What the hell was I thinking? 
I hated that man.
But naked and sexy had gotten me into this mess. 
And not even hate could get me out.

My Review 
*ARC received in return for an honest review

Oh, I loved everything about this book!! And that cover...swoons, it's sooo sexy, there's just something about a guy wearing glasses😍 

One Shameless Night is book #2 in The West Sisters, a spin-off of The West Brothers, and this series just gets better. As usual, with this author, I have been on an emotional roller coaster and have loved every minute of it!

I'm a huge fan of A.M. Hargrove's work. I love the way she weaves a story that has you laughing out loud at her hilarious sense of humour one minute then sitting on the edge of your seat in heart-stopping suspense as the tense drama unfolds, the next. 

As soon as I realise there's a child involved the story I know I'm in trouble, as she writes just the most adorable kids who just tug on your heart strings, and little Gabriele was no exception. 

I loved Piper's feistiness, strength and her knack to get into more than her fair share of awkward and embarrassing situations. The waxing scene had me laughing out loud, it was so funny. Piper was definitely a force to reckon with when her temper was in full flow, I wouldn't want to mess with her.

Alessandro was much more than just your average hot, college professor. He was a man who was passionate about those he loved. He would do anything to keep them safe, even if it meant putting his own happiness and love life on a back burner to achieve this. But that was before Piper...


The chemistry between Alessandro and Piper was so hot, they practically burned right of the pages! They were perfect for each other.


Gabriele, Alessandro's 6 year old son, melted my heart. He was so adorable and funny, he had the adults wrapped around his little finger.


Although there was a lot of humour throughout the book there was also a fair share of gripping drama which was quite traumatic in places. I was actually holding my breath with suspense at one point. 

If you're a fan of single-dad romances featuring hot, sexy, spectacle-wearing Italian professors and you love feisty, strong female leads and cute, adorable six year olds then this is definitely the book for you. 

I can't recommend One Shameless Night highly enough, I was hooked from the beginning!

Release Day Blitz: Finding Storm (The Storm #5) by Samantha Towle + 5* review + playlist



Title: Finding Storm
Series: The Storm #5
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs
Photograph: Wander Aguiar Photography
Model: Colton B.
Release Date: September 6, 2019

Synopsis

The son of an icon. 

He was a legend. Rock royalty.

A man I never met.

But I’m measured against him in every aspect of my life.

The only time I feel like me … the real me … is when I’m onstage with my band. But the more we grow in popularity, the more people compare me to him.

I’m not him. And I never will be. If only everyone could figure that out for themselves.

I need a break from it all. 

Then, a confrontation has me jumping in my car, putting LA in my rearview mirror. And a stupid mistake ends up with my car on the side of the road. And straight into the path ofa girl who is the exact opposite of everyone else in my life. 

She’s like everything I used to know.

And she has no clue who I am.

Even if she did, I don’t think she’d care.

She thinks I’m cavalier. 

I think she’s intriguing. And hot. Let’s not forget hot.

I’m stuck in this town overnight while my car is being fixed. But I’m thinking I’m gonna stick around a bit longer.

I’m Storm Slater, lead guitarist in Slater Raze and the only child of the late, great Jonny Creed. But, here, right now … I’m nobody. Just a regular guy. 

I’m liking it a whole lot. 

And I’m liking her even more. 







My Review
*ARC received in return for an honest review

I flippin' loved this book and I adored Storm and Stevie!!!

The author totally nailed it with Finding Storm, it was so much more than I could've hoped for. It was funny, heartbreaking in places and passionate and so damned addictiveI was hooked from the first page. Time just ran away from me as soon as I picked up my kindle and before I knew it, I was just over halfway through in one sitting! I just couldn't get enough.

I adore this author and her words. She creates such a wonderful mix of funny, charming, feisty, strong, flawed, complex and downright sexy characters who you can't help but fall for. They end up capturing your heart, making you wish you were part of their circle of friends and I certainly fell for Storm and Stevie! 

My heart broke for Storm and what he was going through at the beginning of the book but as soon as he met Stevie my heart was happy. She was perfect for him, just what he needed. Their relationship reminded me of Jake and Tru's. Sigh! 
I loved the chemistry between these two. They had me chuckling aloud one minute with their instant flirtatious and hilarious banter and heating up the next with their red hot passion.

I totally related to Stevie's unwavering passion of 80's music and I now have Pat Benetar's "Love Is A Battlefield" running around my head. Non-stop!!

I really enjoyed the little catch up of Jake, Tru and their family, including the rest of The Mighty Storm gang, I miss those guys.

I'm hoping this won't be the last we hear from this couple as I'm not ready to let them go yet and I really want to find out more about Storm's friends, and bandmates, especially Raze. So if you're listening Samantha Towle, pleeease write Raze's book next!!

I know Finding Storm can be read as a standalone but, if you haven't read The Storm series yet then you’ll probably want to read that first to get the best reading experience of the whole series. 

I can’t seriously recommend this book highly enough!!!

Cover Reveal: The Day He Came Back by Penelope Ward



Title: THE DAY HE CAME BACK
(A standalone) 
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: A Contemporary Romance Novel
Release date: August 19,2019 

 
Synopsis

From New York Times, USA Today and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

It was the summer of my life.
I’d met the guy of my dreams.
Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity employer—and very much off - limits.
But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be careful.
He never treated me as his mother did—like hired help.
Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and loved me harder than I’d ever been loved in my life.

What a summer it was.
Until it all ended—badly.

I was never supposed to see Gavin again.
That didn’t stop me from thinking about him every day for ten years.
I knew little about his life now, just that he was an entrepreneur living an ocean away.

When a twist of fate had me working again in the very place our love affair started a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of time before I might see him again.
But I wasn’t prepared.
What if he hated me?
What if he loved someone else now?
I wasn’t prepared for all the unknowns.

And most of all, I wasn’t prepared for today to be the day he came back.
