Quesarasera Book Blog Review4 Stars! I have never wanted to throw something after reading a book more than I did when I finished book two in The Science of Unrequited! Book one ended on a cliffhanger, but it was an acceptable-ish cliffhanger. I mean, we all want Evan and AJ to just work it out already. So, when book two ended on a cliffhanger, which I knew was coming, I thought I was prepared. I was NOT prepared!I am not a big fan of books told in alternating past and present chapters. Honestly, I would prefer to read all the past together and then all the present. So, as great as this book is, and it is really great, I couldn’t give it 5 stars. I am just going to keep the rest of this review brief, because spoilers suck! Let’s just say, that AJ and Evan FINALLY make some progress. Truths are told. Revelations are made. The hypothesis is tested and… Well, let’s just say that SOMEONE is stubborn and all that progress goes out the window… AGAIN! Oh and Kyle gets a bit of redemption.This series is really good.

Blog Tour ~ 4.5 Stars for Counterfeit Boyfriend by Cindi Madsen

Today Cindi Madsen is joining us to share the blog tour for COUNTERFEIT BOYFRIEND, her new contemporary romance! Check it out and grab your copy today!

Title: COUNTERFEIT BOYFRIEND

Author: Cindi Madsen

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Counterfeit Boyfriend:

My twin brother’s talked me into a lot of crazy things, but taking his place on a road trip with his girlfriend so he can party with his friends is a whole new level of insanity. What’s even more insane is I somehow find myself agreeing to it—thanks, alcohol, guilt, and bribery. I’m determined to undo the arrangement, but then I meet Gwen, this sexy redheaded hurricane of energy and brains.

And then she kisses me. Just like that, I’m driving her up the coast, on our way to a wedding with a mess of complications. With each hour and each stop, I’m falling harder and harder for a woman who doesn’t know my actual name.

I’m trying to do the right thing. Or the lesser of the wrong things. All my life I’ve had to clean up my brother’s messes, but for the first time ever, I’ve landed the upper hand in one of our switcheroo schemes. Now I’ve just got to come clean and convince Gwen that I’m the brother she should be with.

My Review

4.5 Stars!

I loved this book! It was unexpected, fun, sexy and full of feels! There is nothing fake about Counterfeit Boyfriend!

Counterfeit Boyfriend is part fake boyfriend, part twin switch, part road trip romance and it is all great! Gwen is dating Evan, who may not want to date Gwen anymore, so he sends his twin brother, Ethan, in his place to accompany Gwen to her best friend’s wedding in her hometown. Sparks fly, but Gwen thinks they are with Evan, even though she has noticed differences.

I loved this! It was clever and fun. Ethan is an amazing book hero. He is kind and passionate and yet he was torn about what he was doing, but he just couldn’t stop himself. The feelings between Gwen and Ethan develop quickly. There is some serious chemisty jumping off the pages and I appreciate that Madsen didn’t moves things too quickly.

This is a really great new book from Cindi Madsen! I highly recommend!

This is going to be Ryan Justice’s year. It’s his last year of college and his last year as a hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies. He’s making all the plays in preparation for achieving his dream of being drafted into the NHL.

This is Sofia Castilleja’s beginning. She is starting her college career as a star member of Bellevue’s brand-new gymnastics team. She’s going to tumble her way to success, first in school and then by realizing her dream of opening her own gym.

Ryan and Sofia didn’t see each other coming, but once they meet, they can’t look away. Their dreams are destined to take them in opposite directions. But it doesn’t take them long to realize that waking up to reality together may be better than dreaming alone.

My Review

4 Stars!

Toni Aleo’s fourth book in the Bellevue Bullies, starts with End Game, a sexy, sweet story featuring Ryan, a defenseman for the Bellevue University hockey team and Sofia, the star gymnast for the GymBulls, BUs brand new gymnastics team. Ryan is strong, confident and he loves hockey and his family. Sofia has been an elite gymnast her entire life until an injury sidelined her Olympic hopes. She loves her sport and her mother. When Ryan sees Sofia for the first time, sparks fly and he does everything in his power to meet her.

Sofia is strong and so focused. She is a great character. She starts off focused, but as she and Ryan grow closer, her priorities change and she loosens up. Ryan appears so strong, but inside he is struggling with what direction his life should take. He is a former manwhore, but once he sees Sofia he only has eyes for her and he goes after her hard. Their romance was sweet, sexy and a joy to read. I love Aleo’s writing. It just flows so well and I get so caught up in her characters. She kept the will they won’t they up all the way to the end in this book and I loved it!

A really great new adult, sports romance!

Blog Tour ~ 3.5 Stars for 13 by Rhonda James

 

Today we have the blog tour of 13 by Rhonda James! We are so excited to share this sexy new romance with you! Check it out and grab your copy today!

Title: 13

Author: Rhonda James

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About 13:

“Fake it till you make it.”

 

A notion I once considered utterly ridiculous. Until one crazy night with a mysterious man resulted in a social media frenzy that had the entire entertainment industry talking.

 

Seems a fake marriage was just what my career needed to make Hollywood come knocking.

 

Convincing him to continue the charade was almost too easy. The chemistry between us made it impossible to keep my hands to myself. But it was all just pretend, right? Love was never in the script.

 

That is, until he re-wrote it.

 

13 Reasons You Should Stay:

 

  1. I’m crazy about you
  2. I make you laugh
  3. You totally dig me

 

My Review

3.5 Stars!

A cute read from a new to me author. 13 is a fun romance between two people who have survived a bad year and now find themselves in an interesting situation. This is insta-love all the way, but it was done really well. Hawk and Sophie are great characters on their own, but I didn’t really feel their chemistry as much as I wish I did. However, I really enjoyed the story and thought it was a good read.

Exclusive Excerpt:

The first thing I noticed were his eyes. Bottle green with the tiniest flecks of copper scattered throughout, and when the light hit them just right, those flecks sparkled in the most intriguing way. His shaggy caramel-blond hair stuck up in all directions, as if he’d been running his fingers through it all day, and the longer I stared, the more I found myself wanting to do the same thing. Tattoos circled both of his wrists, and his ears were pierced and adorned in black onyx. He had a smile that could simultaneously melt your heart and panties. Everything about him screamed male model, and if he wasn’t, then he sure as hell should be. He was that gorgeous. The bar was packed, and he was seated close. So close his muscular thigh pressed tightly against mine, making it impossible to ignore his presence. Not that I wanted to or anything.

By the time I finished examining him, I looked up and found his pouty lips were puckered as if he was deep in thought. Either that or he was thinking about kissing me. Yeah, I knew we hadn’t been formally introduced, but I’d definitely consider kissing those lips. His gaze was intense, and it roamed my entire body, slowly, as if he were cataloging every detail for later when he was alone and naked in the shower. The thought of him naked, alone or otherwise, excited me.

“No one special.” I fidgeted in my seat. “Old boyfriend.”

“If you ask me, he’s a dumbass for letting you get away. You’re much prettier than candy.”

Another blush heated my cheeks as I shook my head and responded, if only to keep him talking, “Ahh, but you haven’t seen this particular piece of candy.”

“Don’t need to. He gave you up. In my book, that’s reason enough to achieve asshole status.” He winked and tipped his glass to mine. “But, thanks to his assholery, you’re here with me. So… to assholes.”

Okay. He was definitely flirting.

New Release ~ 4.5 Stars for Jock Row by Sara Ney!!

Scarlett is always the sensible one: The sober driver. The planner. The one holding your hair back while you’re worshiping the porcelain gods.

Week-after-week, she visits Jock Row with her friends—the universities hottest party scene and breeding ground for student athletes. And if keeping her friends out of trouble, and guys out of their pants, was a sport, she’d be the star athlete.

But week-after-week Scarlett returns, determined to get inside.

My Review

Blog Tour ~ 4.5 Stars for I Dare You by Ilsa Madden-Mills!

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills brings you a brand-new heartfelt, sexy contemporary romance with I DARE YOU is LIVE!

Bad Ass Athlete: I dare you to…
Delaney Shaw: Who is this?

The late night text is random, but “Bad Ass Athlete” sure seems to know who she is…

Delaney Shaw.
Good girl.
Lover of fluffy kitties and Star Wars.
Curious.

His dare? Spend one night in his bed—a night he promises will be unforgettable—and she can solve the mystery of who he is.

She knows she shouldn’t, but what else is she going to do with her boring Valentine’s Day?

One sexy hook-up later, her mind is blown and the secret’s out.

Maverick Monroe.
Bad boy.
The most talented football player in the country.
Just ask him.

Too bad for him Delaney’s sworn off dating athletes forever after her last heartbreak.

But Maverick wants more than one night and refuses to give up on winning Delaney’s heart. She isn’t one to be fazed by a set of broad shoulders.

After the semester ends, will the bad boy land the nerd girl or will the secrets they keep from each other separate them forever?

My Review

4.5 Stars!!

Ilsa Madden-Mills is back with a stellar new adult romance featuring a geeky heroine and a sexy football player in an opposites attract romance that will make you swoon hard!

Delaney is a self-professed geek girl with a unique style, love of all things Star Wars and a love of cats. Maverick is the star defensive lineman for the Waylon University football team. They have a brief encounter freshman year, but it had lasting effects. They don’t interact again for two years, but when they do, sparks fly.

I loved the story. Opposites attract is one of my favorites, especially in a college setting. I loved that Maverick, while cocky, wasn’t an overt manwhore. Delaney was great, too. She wasn’t a big pushover. She had her very realistic reasons for not falling for Maverick’s charms at first. Their relationship progressed naturally with a little help from some texts. I loved the texting mystery, even thought He-Man’s identity was only a secret to Delaney. The secondary characters were plot drivers and not too intrusive. It was just a feel good story with the perfect amount of spice.

Another winner from Madden-Mills!

Excerpt

Prologue
Freshman year

Delaney

Welcome to Magnolia, Mississippi, where locusts are as big as your hand and iced tea comes with a double helping of sugar.
It’s also home to the best damn annual bonfire party at prestigious Waylon University, which is currently happening right now in the middle of a cotton field.
But…
I shouldn’t even be at this party.
It’s mostly for Greeks and jocks and popular people, yet here I am, a mere freshman, hanging out with my bubbly redheaded roommate, Skye.
“See?” she says as we take in the bonfire. “Isn’t this better than watching cat videos on a Saturday night? What do you want to do first?”
I sigh, feeling nervous. Ever since I moved here from North Carolina, I’ve been pushing myself to try new things. Might as well put a crazy college party on that list. “Let’s get a drink.”
She claps and excitedly replies, “Done. Alcohol at two o’clock.” We weave through the crowd, headed in that direction, and eventually we reach the bar, which is really just a long collapsible table someone set up. On top are various bottles of alcohol, and I grab the Fireball to pour shots. I’ve just tossed mine back and set down my cup when a prickling sensation washes over me, giving me goose bumps.
My gaze moves across the crowd, stopping on a tall guy with dark blond hair, broad shoulders, and a cocky smile. Aha. He’s been staring at me, and now that he’s caught, he raises his glass as a half-grin crosses his face.
I blush wildly as I adjust my black cat-eye glasses. I’m not used to such blatant male attention.
Skye—who’s followed the trajectory of my gaze—spits out part of her drink. “Oh my God, do you know who that is?”
“Obviously I should,” I say dryly.
Her mouth flops open. “You really need to get out more.”
My eyes drift back to him but keep moving as if I’m not staring. “So who is Mr. Hottie McParty Pants?”
“If you don’t know him, you don’t deserve to know. But, he’s H-O-T—like Chris Hemsworth hot. I dare you to flirt with him.” She wiggles her eyebrows at me, knowing full well that for some reason, I can’t resist a dare. Normally rather reserved, a dare gives me permission to be someone I’m not.
So does Fireball. I sling back another shot.
“I’ll bring you a donut every day for a week if you flirt with him,” she adds, watching me.
My ears perk up. “The ones with edible glitter?”
She nods, and I toss a quick glance back to him. Our eyes collide again, and a zing of connection fires between us. He has a strong, handsome face and a stance that has masculine written all over it. A smile tips up his full sensuous lips, and—
Two brunettes—twins, no less—approach him, one on either side, and wrap their arms around his waist. He smiles down at them. Oh. Well then.
I turn back to Skye and frown. “Player. Not interested.”
She waves her hands in my face. “He likes you—I saw it on his face.”
I snort. “Probably gas pains. Your dare is not accepted.”
We hear our names being called from the other side of the party and turn to take in the helmet-haired Martha approaching us, which is taking some time due to the fact that she’s wearing stilettos and a slinky halter dress. She carefully picks her way through the crowd, nudging people out of her way—sometimes rudely—as she focuses on us. Great.
“Incoming mean girl,” I mutter under my breath.
Like us, Martha Burrows is a freshman and lives on our floor. Rather full of herself, she announced within a week of meeting us that she’d no longer answer to anything but Muffin, a nickname she’d given herself.
She eyes us both, a look of superiority on her pretty face. “I didn’t know you two were invited to this little shindig. Obviously, I know all the right people, so I’m always invited.” Her gaze zeroes in on my outfit and she rears back. “What on earth are you wearing, Nerd Girl?”
“Clothes.” I stiffen at her name for me as I tug on my fitted Star Wars shirt and the pleated red miniskirt I made from a man’s shirt. My long pale blonde hair is up in curled pigtails, and I went a bit heavy-handed with the shimmery eye shadow and red lipstick. It’s not your typical look for WU—which is anything monogrammed—but I’m learning to ignore the raised eyebrows.
Skye, the peacemaker among us three, clears her throat and nods her head at the guy who’s been staring. “Delaney has an admirer, but she doesn’t know who he is.”
Martha-Muffin follows Skye’s gaze, eyeballing the mystery man over my shoulder. She gives me an exasperated look. “That’s Maverick Monroe, you idiot. He’s the biggest football star in Mississippi and the freshman recruit of the year. Word is, though, girls like you aren’t his type—not at all.” Her hand flicks a stiff honey-colored curl over her shoulder.
My teeth grind together. “Martha, if you think I care what you think about me and whether or not a quasi-famous football player is interested in me, then you are confused.”
Her lips tighten. “It’s Muffin now, and why do you have to use such big words? What does quasi even mean?” is her cutting reply.
Skye’s eyes get as big as saucers, and I assume it’s because Martha-Muffin and I are about to finally have it out. I can’t stand her, and she can’t stand me. We just…clash.
But that isn’t what has Skye in such a titter.
She points over my shoulder, and I get it.
It’s the person standing behind me, the one I can’t see. I feel a nervous sneeze coming on and—thank God—I somehow push it down.
A husky voice reaches my ears. “Quasi means seemingly or supposedly. What she means is I’m probably not a famous football player but rather one that’s been highly touted but is without merit.”
Oh, shit. The voice is rich and smooth with just enough southern drawl to make a girl swoon. He also sounds halfway intelligent.
I turn around slowly. Mr. Tall, Blond, and Football is right in front of me wearing a cocky smile.
How in the hell did he get over here so fast?
You know that moment when everything stops and the next breath you take is the first one of the rest of your life? That’s what it feels like as Maverick Monroe stares at me with his piercing blue eyes.
I glance down and take in the sculpted chest and hard biceps.
I look back up and see a chiseled jawline that’s defined and lined with a slight scruff. I see the thin pink scar that slices through his left eyebrow, and it does nothing to detract from his appeal.
He’s perfection.
He’s air.
Which I desperately need right now, because I can’t breathe.
He smirks, as if reading my mind, and I scramble to pull myself together. Someone calls his name—it’s a girl’s voice, probably one of those twins—but he doesn’t budge.
His eyes rove over my skirt, glasses, and lips. “The question is…do you even know what makes a good football player?”
“Nice hands?”
His lips twitch. “Hardly.”
“A tight end?” I smirk, feeling sassy…which is weird. I don’t know who I am right now, but it’s like my mouth has a life of its own, saying things I normally wouldn’t.
Martha-Muffin chokes on her drink at my remark and Skye watches me with glee, clearly excited that I have the attention of someone who is apparently very important at Waylon.
I put my hand on my hip. “The question is…why do I need to know?”
“You don’t. All you need to know is I’m the best.”
I suck in a little breath at his arrogance.
A guy walks past us and claps him on the shoulder. “Badass game last week, Mav. Rock on.”
“Thanks, man.” Maverick acknowledges the compliment and lifts his chin, his eyes never straying from mine.
“What position do you play?” I ask. “Quarterback?”
He smirks. “Middle linebacker—defense.”
“Sounds fancy.”
He laughs.
Skye, who’s been eavesdropping unabashedly, sighs with a dreamy expression on her face. “His stats are the best in the country.” She clears her throat. “I-I only know that because my brother is a huge fan, I swear.”
“Hi, Maverick,” Martha-Muffin says as she edges closer to him, nudging me out of the way with her sharp shoulders. “Remember me?”
He focuses on her. “No.”
She glowers. “I was in your dorm room with your roommate last week. You said hello to me.”
He shrugs. “A lot of girls come through. I can’t remember them all.”
Oh. My. God. He is arrogant, but I like how he just shut her down.
Martha-Muffin’s face reddens and she mutters something under her breath, flips around, and flounces off. Good riddance.
Out of the corner of my eye, I see Skye is drifting away too, giving me a thumbs-up.
Whatever. I am not going to flirt with this guy…am I?
He’s definitely got something about him, something that makes my body buzz. I tilt my chin up, taking in how tall he is. He has to be at least six-four.
His gaze drifts over my face. “You know there’s a legend here at Waylon about our famous bonfire party?”
“Oh?”
He smiles, a flash of white on his handsome face. “Legend says the first person you kiss at the party is the one you’ll never forget. It might be years later, and still their face is the one you dream about.”
“Sounds like hocus-pocus.”
He lifts that mesmerizing left eyebrow. “I like to believe in legends—after all, I am one.”
I smirk. “Probably a game made up by some frat-boy-slash-jock wanting to kiss all the girls.”
He pauses for a moment as if thinking, and then he steps in closer, so close that I can see the varying shades of blue around his pupils. “May I?”
My heart does somersaults.
“May you what?” I ask, my voice low, but I know what he wants. My body is already leaning toward him, wanting it too.
“This.” He kisses me, an almost imperceptible touch as he brushes his full lips against mine. The contact of our mouths is electric, sparks of fire skating along my skin.
As if from a distance, I hear someone calling his name. It’s a female, and she’s pissed.
It’s one of the twins probably.
And I’m jealous.
But, I don’t look. We pull away, and I stare at him as he stares right back. A stillness settles over the party, although I don’t think anything’s actually changed. The music is still playing. People are still talking. Beers are being passed around.
Yet…
We’re connected.
Two stars in the black velvet sky.
Two ships passing in the night.
Oh, fuck, stop the nonsense, I tell myself.
“What was that?” I ask, my voice breathless.
“That’s your first kiss of the bonfire. Now you’ll never forget me.”
And then, before I can think of a reply, he’s gone.
I watch him go back to the twins, frustration coiling inside of me as I exhale.
It would be two years before I kissed him again.

I-Dare-You-Final-Goodreads

Bad Ass Athlete: I dare you to…
Delaney Shaw: Who is this?

The late night text is random, but “Bad Ass Athlete” sure seems to know who she is…

Delaney Shaw.
Good girl.
Lover of fluffy kitties and Star Wars.
Curious.

His dare? Spend one night in his bed—a night he promises will be unforgettable—and she can solve the mystery of who he is.

She knows she shouldn’t, but what else is she going to do with her boring Valentine’s Day?

One sexy hook-up later, her mind is blown and the secret’s out.

Maverick Monroe.
Bad boy.
The most talented football player in the country.
Just ask him.

Too bad for him Delaney’s sworn off dating athletes forever after her last heartbreak.

But Maverick wants more than one night and refuses to give up on winning Delaney’s heart. She isn’t one to be fazed by a set of broad shoulders.

After the semester ends, will the bad boy land the nerd girl or will the secrets they keep from each other separate them forever?

My Review

4.5 Stars!!

Ilsa Madden-Mills is back with a stellar new adult romance featuring a geeky heroine and a sexy football player in an opposites attract romance that will make you swoon hard!

Delaney is a self-professed geek girl with a unique style, love of all things Star Wars and a love of cats. Maverick is the star defensive lineman for the Waylon University football team. They have a brief encounter freshman year, but it had lasting effects. They don’t interact again for two years, but when they do, sparks fly.

I loved the story. Opposites attract is one of my favorites, especially in a college setting. I loved that Maverick, while cocky, wasn’t an overt manwhore. Delaney was great, too. She wasn’t a big pushover. She had her very realistic reasons for not falling for Maverick’s charms at first. Their relationship progressed naturally with a little help from some texts. I loved the texting mystery, even thought He-Man’s identity was only a secret to Delaney. The secondary characters were plot drivers and not too intrusive. It was just a feel good story with the perfect amount of spice.

Another winner from Madden-Mills!

My Review

4 stars!

Being a teenager is hard. As a teenage girl, being friends with a teenage boy is never, ever easy. AJ and Evan’s story is emotional, angsty and engaging. Told in dual POV and alternating between past and present. If you have read my reviews, you know that is definitely not my favorite story-telling style. Although, Len Webster did a pretty good job with it without overdoing it. She used it as a plot driver to give us a better understanding of the dynamic between AJ and Evan and what led to the betrayal.

This was not a quick read, but then none of Webster’s books are. There was plenty of emotion and angst. I enjoyed the characters of AJ and Evan and their story was good. I am excited to see how their story continues. Oh, did I mention this is not a standalone? Don’t get all crazy-like, the book is good enough that it will leave you wanting more.

—Tantalizing Reviews

 

*A laugh out loud, standalone, romantic comedy by New York Times Bestseller Addison Moore*

One hot kiss plus one reckless night equals eating for two. Definitely not the equation Sunday Knight was looking for when she decided to let loose and trade her good girl persona for a night of primal fun. The worst part? She has no clue who the baby daddy might be. Her father is so proud.

 

My Review

4 Stars!

Can you believe there have been 13 books in this fun series!?! This is one of my all-time favorite series and I once again fell in love with yet another Whitney Briggs couple!

Sunday and Seth are practically family. His sister is marrying her brother. That hasn’t stopped them from secretly harboring feelings for each other over the years. The thing keeping them apart is family… namely Sunday’s brothers, Rush and Nolan. Then, on a fateful night in December, at a party with, two people, a whole lot of alcohol and a one night stand that changes their lives forever.

This isn’t my favorite of this series, but it is up there in the top three. Addison Moore pulled out all the stops for this one. Her books are usually filled with snarky comments from the heroines (which I loved btw, because good snark goes a long way in my book), but in Reckless Kisses, the snark is toned down a bit. This isn’t the usual hate-love romance that is the signature mark of the series. Those feelings are recognized rather early on in this book. Reckless Kisses is more about finding courage, truth and family. I loved the baby storyline. I loved that Sunday didn’t know who the father of the baby was, but someone else did. Sunday is a pretty great character. She is funny, slightly snarky, and full of love for her friends and family. Seth is a bit of a gentle giant, but he is fierce in his feelings toward Sunday. The book moves along at a perfect pace and when the big shakeup happens, it is kind of epic. The HEA is just right and the bonus scene at the very end was perfection.

If you are already a fan of this series, you will love Seth and Sunday’s story. If you haven’t read any of the series, this one is a great one to start with. You can always go back and read the rest and I promise, after one taste of the kisses series, you’ll go back for more!
