THE LEARNING HOURS by Sara Ney

He’s not a douchebag;

but that doesn’t stop his friends from

turning him into one.

 

MY FRIENDS WANT ME TO GET LAID.

So much so that they plastered my ugly mug all over campus, in bold printed letters:

Are you the lucky lady who’s going to break our roommate’s cherry?

Him: socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: must have pulse. Text him at: 555-254-5551

The morons can’t even spell. And the texts I’ve been receiving are what wet dreams are made of. But I’m not like these douchebags, no matter how hard they try to turn me into one.

THIS ISN’T THE KIND OF ATTENTION I WANT.

One text stands out from hundreds. One number I can’t bring myself to block. She seems different. Hotter, even in black and white.

 

However, after seeing her in person, I know she’s not the girl for me. But my friends won’t let up—they just don’t get it. Douchebags or not, there’s one thing they’ll never understand: GIRLS DON’T WANT ME.

Especially her.

Review by Susan:

OMG, Sara does it again! This book is the perfect read, it’s got a fun, flirty, beautiful heroine and a hot, douchebag wrestler. It’s full of hilarious, witty, flirty banter between the two and some panty melting sexy times! I won’t say anything about the story, the reader needs to experience it for themselves and also the reveal of who the douchebag is! What I will say is this book is a bit different to the first two, but in a great way. I flipping loved the hero, he was so swoon worthy, adorable  and my favorite so far! The heroine was so perfect for him, she pushed him out of his comfort zone and held his hand while doing so. I read this book in one sitting and had a stupid grin on my face while doing so! For fans of this author, this is a must read, if you have not read anything by this author, what are you waiting for? Do yourself a favor and one click today! You won’t be disappointed. 5 Stars

 

 

He’s seated at a table in the far corner when I spot him from the door. He’s not hard to miss—not with his purple t-shirt in a sea of black and yellow, and wavy mussed hair.

He’s slouching, hunched over his table.

Defeated. Tired.

My stomach rolls with nerves, nerves that have me rooted to the spot in the doorway, watching him.
Just watching.

For the entire four minutes I stand here, he sits immobile, studying his laptop, eyes moving along the screen, completely transfixed by whatever he’s reading.

Learning.

“Just go over there,” I whisper to myself, blowing out a puff of pent-up air.

I put one foot in front of the other and begin toward him, spine ramrod straight, steeling myself, prepared for another argument.

Twenty feet.

Fifteen.

Eight.

Two.

“Hi.”

No reply.

“Do you mind if I sit here?” I lay my hand on the back of the wooden chair across from him, intending to pull it out.

He stiffens but doesn’t lift his head. “Yes I mind.”

“Would you mind if I sat at the table next to you?” I’m pushing his buttons, looking for a reaction, but he only spares me a brief glance.

Shrugs. “Free country.”

I bite my lip to hide a smile, glad he didn’t tell me to take a hike…

All of You All of Me by Claudia Burgoa

 

Title: All of You All of Me
Author: Claudia Burgoa
Genre: Adult Contemporary
Release Date: August 9, 2017

 

Blurb
One heinous tragedy changed my entire family forever. 
That morning, my world crumbled. I lost my parents. 
Now, I live by certain rules.
Don’t let anyone know what goes on inside your head.
Stay away from crowds. 
Never fall in love.
  
Though, that was until her. She has me
questioning everything. 
It’s the haunted eyes. 
The sultry voice. 
The sweetness under her armor.
Everything about her captivates me. The surge of energy we
create with one touch has me searching for her, even when there’s also
something dark underneath her bright smile. 
Unable to resist the desire toward her, I break my rules
giving her all of me while expecting all of her.
Review by Christine:
All of You All of Me by Claudia Burgoa is an emotional tale of love and loss between two broken souls. We were first introduced to Willow & Hudson in Claudia’s short story “How We Met” in the Love Happens anthology and now we follow their journey.

Both Willow & Hudson have their struggles and I was so happy that this wasn’t a cookie cutter romance where they heal each other just by being together. Gut-wrenching, poetic and beautifully imperfect but leaving me wanting more of these broken characters trying to find a path. The supporting characters are just as strong and I hope we get to see more of their stories in the future. Claudia has created a beautiful non-traditional original romance that I won’t soon forget. 5 Big Apple Stars for All of You All of Me by Claudia Burgoa

Review by Paula:

Evan and Carys have loved each other for a very long time and then Evan brakes up with Caryn and disappears. This book we get flash backs of now and then of  there relationship. Evan is back and now ready to prove to Caryn she is his one and only. Caryn has moved on but will she give up it all to have Evan back? Lots of secrets and very intense moments that keep you turning the page wanting more. I loved Evan how much he has loved Caryn and devoted his life pretty much to her even from afar. Caryn I had love/ hate relationship with her. One min I liked her next she was just getting on my nerves with the Greg thing. A really good second chance romance! 4 Stars

Excerpt
“Evan, I want to know what happened, but I have a life now and you need to know…” She trails off, her eyes darting away from mine.“What?”

Gazing up at me, she continues, “Whatever you have to say, it’s not going to change a thing. We’re over.”

My heart twists and breathing becomes difficult. Mother fuck, her words cut deep, hurting even though they aren’t true. Sure, she believes them on some level—she had to, in order to get through what I did. Yet, along with the hurt and disappointment swimming in her eyes, there’s also tenderness and love.

“Tell me you’re happy and I’ll walk away.”

We always pushed each other, challenged the other to face our fears, to be honest with ourselves, with each other. I need to hear her say it. I don’t believe it, but if she is over me, I need to hear it in her voice and see it in her face—not because I want to, but because it’s the only way I can even begin to accept that we’re over. Even then, it’s not possible.

“I’m happy.” Her tone is laden with bravado, but no true emotion. Even her gaze, which never wavers from mine, is flat.

Shaking my head, I briefly cast my eyes downward to suppress my smile. “No, you’re not.”

“Van.” I flinch at that fucking name.

As a child, I thought it was so fucking cool to have a nickname that only my best friends would call me. Now, hearing “Van” from her pretty lips, I want to obliterate the word from her vocabulary, fucking kiss the word out of her.

“You can call me asshole for all I care, you’re not happy,” I retort in frustration. Catching my tone, I breathe deeply and loosen my fists to relax. “Don’t lie to me, and most of all, don’t lie to yourself.”

“You don’t know what you’re talking about. You want to see what you want. I’m with Greg, and we’re happy.”

She grimaces infinitesimally, then averts her eyes from me. Unable to read her, I’m not sure if it’s because she means it and doesn’t want to hurt my feelings or if the lie tastes nasty in her mouth.

“Sweetness, I know everything there is to know about you, without apology. You can’t lie to me.”

REAL SEXY by Meghan March

Real Sexy AMAZONIn Nashville, country stars are a dime a dozen.

I swore I’d never get caught up with one, but Boone Thrasher made a liar out of me.

I said I’d never put my heart on the line, but he didn’t ask before he stole it.

Now we’re facing my worst fears, and we’ll see if this country boy is tough enough to see it through.

Girls like me don’t get happily ever afters… but maybe he’ll prove that wrong too.

Review by Paula:

This is the conclusion to Boone and Ripley’s story. Boone is bound and determined to fight and prove to Ripley life can be a happy ever after. Ripley doesn’t think she deserves anything good in life but will Boone prove her wrong? Will Ripley finally realize she’s not like her family at all? Angst and drama in this book and shocking details near the end that make this book perfect end to there story. 4 Stars

 

Review by Candy:

Well it seems that Boone has worn down Ripley in this sequel. Things start becoming real for Ripley and she’s just not sure about her feelings for Boone yet because why, she’s scared that it’s all gonna end because that’s her luck. Boone is excited that Ripley is starting to feel for him the way he feels for her and willing to wait for her to catch up to where he is with them as a couple. Ripley’s troubled past comes back in way that makes her want answers that she may not want to know….. Other than Ripley’s past surprise there’s another but you’ll have to read to find out.
Meghan great duet series loved both the bad boy Boone and the kinda hard ass Ripley. When you brought these two together you made a complete set, each one is the opposite and that makes them click. Your writing flows from both sides and you still keep the reader very interested. A must read. 5 Stars

 

Real Dirty AMAZONI have everything a guy could want—a new single burning up the charts, more money than a simple country boy could spend, and a woman I’m planning to marry.

Until she doesn’t show up for my proposal.

The life I thought was so perfect, isn’t.

The guy who thought he had everything, doesn’t.

I’ve got my heart on lockdown, but life sends me straight into the path of a mouthy bartender who puts me in my place.

Now the only place I want to put her is under me.

I thought I was done with love, but maybe I’m just getting started.

Villain by Jackie Wang

Title: Villain
Author: Jackie Wang
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: May 12, 2017
I go by many names: Playboy, Hustler, Villain.

They call me a sadistic a-hole because I rob from the poor and cheat on the weak.

Do I ever regret the choices I’ve made? All the damn time.

But it’s too late to turn back, and too late to start over…

I’ve never even considered giving it all up for anyone or anything before. Never had a reason or motivation to change.

Until I met her.

Callista Rayner. Heiress. Goddess. Need-her-ass-up-on-my-mattress.

My last chance at redemption.

Problem was, I couldn’t afford to fall for her, because I didn’t want to ruin her.

I didn’t want to destroy her, like the others that came before.

Too bad I had no choice.

Too bad she was my pawn and I had to use her.

Too bad, too bad, too bad.

Sweet & Spicy Reads – “This is one twist and turn crazy book that has you gasping and shocked how truly one person can be a true villain in your life.”

Readers World Book Haven – “All in all, “Villain” is a brilliantly written thriller that grabs you and will have you on the edge of your seat. A definite must read.”

Reader Review – “Hot, suspenseful, with rollercoaster twists, emotional ups, and downs, and humor laced in between the detailed pages of these interesting read.”


Review by Paula:
This is one twist and turn crazy book that has you gasping and shocked how truly one person can be a true villain in your life. Ryder is a 38 year old hustler and his life is all about revenge to everyone that betrayed him. Cally is 28 rich and people just use her because of her wealthy father Paul. Ryder meets Cally and things start to change and he starts to fall hard for her. This book hit home for me because of all the domestic violence but it helped me see it on the other side looking in. Will Ryder get his answers or will he keep being the villain and wanting revenge? Will Cally show Ryder how to truly love someone and have someone in his corner? Wow this is definitely a page turner and keeps you on your toes till the end! It makes you think who can you really trust in your life? And do we all have villains? 5 Stars

I grew up under a grand delusion.
As a child, I pretended that I was a paper princess, hidden in a tower, awaiting my prince. Being with me came at an impossible price though, because I was kept by a wicked witch, someone who called herself my mother. I was a doomed Rapunzel, forgotten by the world.
All my life, I’d been a kept woman.
Kept in the cellar while my mother entertained foul men of all shapes and sizes, sometimes for hours or all night long.
Kept in the closet while my mother sucked her boyfriend’s cock.
Kept in the garage while my mother laundered bloody sheets and soiled blankets. While she scrubbed the walls and took out the trash.
My mother said she was born to serve. A born listener. A follower. Chosen for breeding. Hand-picked for pleasure…

Review by Candy:

This is a great start to the duet series. I enjoyed the antics that are written and feel in love with these two (Ripley and Boone). You have a woman with a past she doesn’t want to let go of and a man who wants her to live more I guess is a way to put it. Boone had a plan that got shot down before he put it into motion and in that night he meets Ripley the bartender. For Ripley, Boone is off limits because of her rule but Boone slowly changes that. Ripley is with Boone and realizing he isn’t what her rule stands for so she is still slowly letting Boone in. Meghan has you riveted with these two so there is no need to put it down. Meghan’s writing flows with each sentence she writes, there’s passion, caring and laughter. A must read. Major cliff hanger so be prepared, I know I wasn’t expecting the ending to go the way it did. 5 Stars

Review by Paula:

Boone is one alpha male country singer has everything he wants and is about to propose to his girlfriend when he finds out she betrayed him. Boone goes to a bar to wallow in alcohol and meets Riley, the bartender that doesn’t do rock stars and puts Boone in his place drunk or not. Riley and Boone have this deep connection that’s so hot it will melt your kindle. Drama  read and even funny moments can’t wait to read the next book to the series! 4 Stars
