Review: Aleatha Romig's "Plus One (Lighter Ones #1)."


Synopsis: 

He's sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there's the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big...well, we've all heard the rumors, the ones that say he's up for any challenge.

But I can't see him that way. He's my boss—technically one of the owners of the company where I work—and definitely not in my league. Men like him don't notice women like me, and they don't date them. 

And I don't date men like him. 

Until that one time that I catch him in a compromising position when I'm also in need of a last-minute date for a wedding...and then it's not real. It's blackmail.

For one weekend, he's my plus-one.

Beautiful and unobtainable.

From the moment she walked into my office with those stunning blue eyes and crazy sensual curves, she's been on my mind. Three years and never once has she acted interested in me. Usually I flash a million-dollar smile and women fall to their knees, some literally. 

Not her.

Then on the occasion that I agree to let another woman do that—fall to her knees—guess who happens to catch us?

It may not be the most conventional way to get on her radar, but I didn't get this far in business without knowing when to seize an opportunity. If this sexy little firecracker with perfectly kissable lips thinks she can blackmail me into attending her cousin's wedding, I'm going to jump at the chance to be her plus-one. 

Review: Jo 

I freaking loved this book! It was the most perfect swoony romantic read that left me with a huge smile on my face and a lovely blissful feeling in my heart. If you are looking for a romance to sweep you off your feet, you can't go wrong with this gorgeous novel. 

“Duncan, this view is breathtaking.” 
“Yes. It’s absolutely breathtaking. I’ve been breathless for nearly three years."

I absolutely loved the main characters in this story. The heroine was just so easy to relate to. Kimbra had so much going for her, a brilliant job, a lovely best friend and a wonderful family, but she had such a low opinion of herself when it came to men. It made me so sad that she didn't realise how beautiful she was. When it came to a family wedding she thought the only way she could get a man to be her date was to blackmail him. From that moment on everything changed for Kimbra as she went to a family wedding with the sexy and swoon-worthy Duncan. Duncan made such a great hero of the story. He was so lovely and completely smitten over kimbra. I was excited to see their relationship develop. 

"I could never have created fantasies that would live up to the real you.”

The story that followed was a beautiful romance that made my heart so full that it was bursting at the seams. It was also a story that was filled with lovable characters( especially grandma Helen) and hilariously fun banter. It was a book that ticked every single box for me. Aleatha Roming is an author that can easily write both lighthearted and dreamy love as well as brilliant and heart-stopping dark suspense. I can't wait to read more from the series. 

"I want to be your plus-one forever and never, ever pretend again." 

"Plus One" gets 4.5 ❤️'s from me.

Release blitz & Review: K Bromberg's "Worth the Risk."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Release Blitz for K Bromberg's "Worth the Risk."

Amazon.com:    https://amzn.to/2rHfjT0
Amazon UK:     https://amzn.to/2KWkLJz

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg comes a new, sexy standalone about taking chances and finding love when it’s least expected. Or wanted.

This whole contest was supposed to be easy. I know, I know. Famous last words.

It’s a long story, but I messed up at work. Big time. To earn back the trust of my boss, I promised to save one of our magazines. Yep. That Hot Dad contest you’ve seen advertised all over the place was my idea. And if I’m successful, if I’m able to increase our online readership, then I get a shot at my dream job.

But the one thing I never expected to happen, happened: Contestant number ten, Grayson Malone. Hello, Mr. Difficult. And did I mention sexy as hell?

Unfortunately he knows me. The old me, anyway. And while we might be older now, I remind him of before. Of the woman who broke his heart, who hardened him, and who left him alone to raise the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen. 

But I don’t want a relationship. And I definitely don’t fall for single dads with baggage. Even ones with chiseled abs and killer smiles. 

But he got to me. They got to me. Him and his son and their messy, crazy life. But I got to him too. I see the stolen glances. I feel the walls he built start to crumble. I recognize that there’s an unexpected beauty to the chaos in his life. 

And now that the contest is about to end, we’re left to decide whether the last six months were just fun or if what we have is worth risking it all?

Review: Surj

There are certain ingredients you find in a book and know you're on to a winner and that was absolutely the case with K Bromberg's "Worth the Risk. I mean seriously, check out this list and tell me I'm wrong?

Single Dad
Cutest kid ever
Rescue pilot (saving lives for a living!!!!)
Tortured, broody, moody hero
The most undomesticated, happily single heroine needing to prove herself at work
Brilliant secondary characters in the form of the Malone clan
Wonderful small town setting

Can you tell I absolutely loved this final Malone Brothers book? Uh huh!!! I'd already been swept off of my feet by two of the Malone men (Grady and Grant) in "Cuffed" and "Combust" but it was Grayson's story that I couldn't wait to get my mitts on and let me tell you, "Worth the Risk" was definitely worth the wait. 

"She tastes like heaven and hell. Like want and need. Like deception and desire." 

This was such an emotionally charged story that really tugged at the heart strings for so many reasons. Grayson's plight was one that broke my heart and I completely got why he was so angry and so opposed to having any kind of relationship with the opposite sex. This man had been burned and burned in the worst possible way and he had no intention of ever going there again. I got it. I really did.  

“You should have let me have a choice in the matter whether 
or not I fell in love with you. But you didn’t. And now it’s for nothing.” 

Sydney was a woman who had drive and ambition but unfortunately a few hiccups along her career journey meant that she now had to prove her worth in the work place if she had any chance of moving up the career ladder she so desperately wanted. How could I not feel for her? It seemed that whenever she tried to do the right thing, she ended up in hot water!!!! 

Both Grayson and Sydney's journeys were paved with obstacles and road blocks but I still routed for them every step of the way. It was difficult not to fall in love with Grayson but it was Sydney and her character growth that really stole the show for me. Her self awareness and ability to own up to her mistakes (both past and present) left me in awe. 

"You take risks every damn day in your job—
you’ve made a name for yourself doing it—and yet, 
you won’t take a goddamn risk on me, will you?”

I loved the "family" feel to "Worth the Risk" and with the Malone's, I always felt more than welcome round their table (in the fictional sense of the word obviously... lol). Plus the small town feel also added a special something. The icing on the cake however was Luke who was just the cutest little man ever who came out with the funniest things!!! It's all about the innies and outies!!!!! 

I thoroughly enjoyed this final Malone Brothers story and am kinda gutted it's over. However, I would love to see grown up Luke get his own book. I can image that would be funny as f**k!!!!

"Worth the Risk" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Release Day Blitz & Review: K.I. Lynn's "Welcome to the Cameo Hotel."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be part of the Release Blitz & Review for K.I. Lynn's "Welcome to the Cameo Hotel."


Synopsis: 

My life was on track.
The plan?
- Finish my MBA
- Get out of the hotel
- Finally date James, my manager 
With only three months left, everything was set.
Then he walked in.
What I thought was just a difficult guest toppled my life in ways I didn’t plan for. He was an asshole, demanding, and more alluring than should be legal.
I had a path. 
He destroyed it.
What now?

Review: Jo 

This was another fabulous read from KI Lynn. Gavin and Emma's story was dreamy, passionate and at one point had my stomach in knots. It was a book that consumed my thoughts and left me unwilling to put my kindle down. I sure was addicted to Emma and Gavin's romance. 

"...nothing has ever seemed as taboo as your lips." 

Emma worked at the Cameo hotel where she met the moody and forever complaining guest, Gavin. What unfolded was a relationship that was wonderfully romantic and Gavin turned out to be surprisingly perfect, he was almost too good to be true. I loved every minute of being in Gavin and Emma's love fest. It was all so swoony with the couple falling hard and fast. The only problem was that everything was going too well for Emma and Gavin, I just knew that their beautiful romance would hit some trouble at some point and burst their bubble. When that moment arrived, it was not in the way that I expected. KI Lynn threw in a curve ball that shocked the hell out of me. I was left with my stomach churning, so worried for Emma and Gavin's future. 

"Hiss kiss was the match that re-ignited my soul. 
The fire that ravaged my body, burned away the cold, 
and replaced it with an all-consuming heat."

Thankfully, after a few nail-biting chapters, I was given a gorgeous ending that warmed my heart and left me feeling blissfully happy for Gavin and Emma. I am always a big fan of epilogues and K.I. Lynn has written a beautiful epilogue that I loved. 

"My life was proof of fairy tales and fate. Gavin Greyson-world destroyer and life giver. 
The very unexpected love of my life."

"Welcome to the Cameo Hotel" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️ from me.

Blog Tour: Lexi Ryan's "Straight Up Love (The Boys of Jackson Harbor #2)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be part of the Blog Tour for Lexi Ryan's "Straight Up Love (The Boys of Jackson Harbor #2)."


Synopsis: 

From New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan comes a sexy new standalone romance about a woman who’d do anything to have a baby and the man who’d do anything to have her…

For my 30th birthday, I’m giving myself the one thing I want most: a baby. Sure, this would be easier if I had a husband—or even a boyfriend—but I refuse to be thwarted by minor details.

When I drunkenly confess my plans to my friends, they convince me to ask Jake Jackson for help. Jake, the best friend who’s been there for me through thick and thin. Jake, who also happens to be smart, funny, ridiculously good looking, and the winner of all the genetic lotteries.

So when Jake takes me up on my request—with the stipulation that we get the job done the old-fashioned way—I’d be a fool to decline.

The only problem? I don’t know if I can separate sex from all the things I feel for this amazing man. If I can’t keep my heart under lock and key, I risk losing the relationship I need the most.

Jake has his own reasons for granting my baby wish. But when I discover his secrets, it could mean the end of us. I have to choose—run or stay and fight for love.

Fall for the boys of Jackson Harbor in Lexi Ryan’s sexy new contemporary romance series. These books can all be read as standalones, but you’ll enjoy reading them as a series!

Review: Jo

I absolutely loved this book. There was so much heart in Jake and Ava's story that it made me giddy with happiness. It also contained a whole lot of heat and a few plot twists along the way that kept me biting my nails wondering how this gorgeous romance would play out. What a fantastic series this is shaping up to be. 

"No girl in her right mind would dread having sex with Jake Jackson. 
But no girl other than me is his best friend." 

Jake and Ava were both such lovely characters. Ava was a sweet and caring teacher who dreamed of being a mum but after one failed marriage her life was not going in the direction that she wanted. Jake was Ava's best friend. Handsome, loyal and dependable. He was always by Ava's side, proving that he would do anything for her. The way in which Jake treated Ava melted my heart. He was everything that she didn't know she needed. I loved everything about Jake. 

"His words are the light to a fuse that races 
across my skin and sets every nerve ending on fire." 

With brilliant writing, a swoon-worthy story and a bucket load of steam this novel contained all of the ingredients to make this hopeless romantics heart fit to burst. I am excited to read more from this series. 

"Jake's been my everything when he didn't have to be.
 He was my always even when I pushed him away." 

"Straight up Love" gets 4.5 ❤️'s from me.




Excerpt:

Ava’s crawling back down the bed and pulling the covers over her head. 

“Can we talk about this?” I ask.

“No,” she says, her voice muffled.

I cross the room and pull the blanket off her head. I know she’s hungover, but I can’t just walk away from this conversation. I barely slept last night, freaking torn up about her pregnancy and all its implications, and now she’s telling me she’s not pregnant. She just wants to be, and she wants my help. 

What the fuck does that mean?

“Talk.” I fold my arms across my chest.

“I want a family, and I’m sick of waiting for Mr. Right to come along, so I’m going to do it on my own.”

“And you want my help?” Hell. I’m trying really hard not to jump to conclusions here. Emphasis on hard.

“Yeah. I mean, no. I mean . . .” She takes a deep breath. “It sounded like a good idea last night.”

Doing baby-making things with Ava sounds like a good idea to me every minute of every hour of every damn day, but I’m quite aware that doing that with me doesn’t cross her mind nearly as often. Okay, or ever. “Last night, when you asked for my help, you meant you wanted me to get you pregnant?” 

She scowls. “Are you being dense on purpose?”

“I promise I’m not.” But if ever there was a conversation where I’m going to need things spelled out for me, this is it. “I just want to make sure I understand.”

She presses her palm to her forehead. “I just wanted you to jack off in a cup and hand it to me. Not the weird way.”

Right. Because that wouldn’t be weird. “I’m sorry.” I hold up a finger. “Give me a sec.” I walk around the room, scanning the ceiling and the corners. I check behind the lamp and crack the closet to look in there. 

“What are you doing, Jake?”

I spin on her. “I’m looking for the camera—the one you planted before you Punk’d me. Is that show even still a thing? Because I’m sure I’m being Punk’d right now.”

Release Blitz & Review: JA Huss & Jonathan McClain's "Passion Rising (Original Sin # 4)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Release blitz for JA Huss & Jonathan McClain's "Passion Rising (Original Sin # 4)."

Amazon.com:   https://amzn.to/2jGIfGp
Amazon UK:    https://amzn.to/2KJJ65t

Synopsis:

Old demons are back.

Maddie’s dealing with the fallout of her choices. Safety and happiness are relative, elusive things she’s desperate to have. But they will forever remain out of reach until the demons of her past are laid to rest.

Tyler’s mistakes resurface to haunt him and he’s just beginning to understand that money can’t fix a broken relationship. He must open his heart and search for answers he’d rather not find.

She wants peace in a world made of chaos.

He wants to rid himself of a lifetime of guilt.

They’re soul mates, but that’s no guarantee.

They’ll need to rely on each other to find their happily ever after.

Because the fight never ends—it just gets easier with someone at your side.

Review: Surj

JA Huss and Johnathan McClain have done themselves proud with this final instalment in the "Original Sin" series. Seriously, part of me is just so happy with how this final book turned out but another part of me is absolutely gutted that it's all over. No more Maddie and Tyler, the barmy couple who weaved their way into our hearts with their crazy ways. There has never been a couple quite like this pair and I doubt there ever will be. They really were as unique as they come and I loved them for that. Who needs a conventional hero and heroine anyway? Right? 

.... Life goes on, no matter what. the world never stops turning. The sun keeps
rising, the night always comes, and then the light takes its place. 

The third book in this series "Flesh into Fire" saw Maddie and Tyler finally close the door on certain aspects of their lives. It was quite the explosive conclusion that had me gripped hook, line and sinker but I knew there was still so much that was left unresolved for this couple. Maddie and Tyler could not move forward until they let go of the past and that involved some serious soul searching. I knew that would come in this final instalment in the series. 

"Passion Rising" really did tie everything up beautifully for this couple. It was a more intimate, more heart felt and more emotional book thats for sure but I think that was what was needed to send Maddie and Tyler off into the sunset. But Johnathan and Julie really did catch me off guard with one final twist that was so unexpected I'm not sure I want to kiss them or kick them lol. Well played both of you. Well played. 

Maddie and I found each other. And inside of each other, 
we found the missing parts of ourselves. 

The "Original Sin" series really has been one hell of a fabulous roller coaster ride that I have loved being a part of. Although I'm sad that it's the end, I'm hoping these two will make cameo appearances in other books Jonathan and Julie write. 

This final book in the series gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️



EXCERPT: 

MADDIE

It strikes me suddenly that I’m not the only one who will notice how fucking good Tyler looks now that he’s all clean-shaven and you can really see that ridiculously fortunate bone structure he has. And I’m a little embarrassed about the fact that I just got all possessive and shit. I’m about to say something to that effect, either make a joke or play it off, but before I can, Tyler grabs me around the waist, pulls me to him and whispers, “That was so fucking hot,” just as the doors to another elevator pop open.

He walks me backwards into the car and frantically pushes the “door close” button before anyone else can step in. He’s got me pressed against the mirrored glass and his hands are between my denim-covered thighs, cupping my pussy. He kisses my neck and the feel of his lips, without any rough hair to brush and scratch against mine, feels so good that I can barely stand it. I didn’t realize his kiss was so soft. The skin of his mouth feels new. Like, I was just starting to get accustomed to the way his kisses felt, and suddenly it’s a whole new experience. New, but familiar. The same way it was when I met him.

It’s how this whole moment feels. Back in the Mandarin where we were on Halloween when we found out who we are. A concept which, I realize in this moment, might be true in more ways than one. It’s been barely two months since we turned each other’s lives upside down. Except that’s not quite fair. Or accurate. Our lives were already upside down. We’ve turned them back right side up. Yeah, we disrupted each other’s worlds, but we did so in the most magnificent way. And it’s starting to feel like that disruption is going to result in a life that actually feels... settled.

I realize that life with Tyler Morgan will never be boring. That much seems incredibly evident. But life is unpredictable no matter what we do to try to put rules in place to keep it from feeling that way. At least with Tyler the unpredictability doesn’t seem scary. With him, as much as is possible, the unpredictability feels safe.

TYLER

Just like the beard was keeping me at a distance from the people I would see walking down the street, it was keeping me at a distance from her when we were alone together. It was an unrealized blockade impeding my ability to be as close to her as I want to be. There is no such impediment now, and I am engulfing myself inside her.

The feel of my cheeks nuzzled in between hers makes this moment seem so...sweet. It’s nice. I don’t know how else to describe it. It’s just kind of...pure. That’s how I feel. That’s what I think.

I also feel like one good rimming deserves another. 

So, moving my head in tiny circles around her ass, just like she did to me a couple of days ago, I get off on the whining noises she makes, and I work two fingers inside her pussy to help everybody along. With my other hand I begin fisting my cock. I’m trying to go slowly so that I don’t fucking come right here all over the Mandarin’s nice carpet. I already burned down one of their condos, I don’t want to fuck up one of their suites too. New-look Tyler is considerate like that. But as slowly as I’m trying to go, she’s making it tough because of the way she’s rotating her ass and hips around.

And suddenly, I don’t want to be behind her. I mean, I love the view from here and I love the way she tastes, but I want to see her. I want to look at her face and have her look at mine. Yeah. I want her to look at me. I want her to see me.

So I pull away, flop down on my back on the bed beside her, and summon to her with my index finger to come over. She does, smiling as she mounts me. She takes my two fingers that were just inside her and puts them in her mouth. And I remember the first time I saw her do that. I told her, “You’re going to fucking kill me.” But she didn’t. She didn’t. It was exactly the opposite. She fucking saved me. And so now, with her astride me, I sit up, take her face in my hands, look her square in the eyes, and tell her, “I fucking love you.”

She closes her own eyes with a shy smile and whispers, “I fucking love you.”

Blog Tour: Molly McAdams' "Lyric (Rebel #1)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be part of the Blog Tour for Molly McAdams' "Lyric (Rebel #1)."


Synopsis: 

I’m not the kind of girl you forget.

I wish I was.

I wish I was normal.

That I could blend into a crowd. Have a future with the man I’ve loved my entire life . . .
Maxon James understands me in a way others can’t.

For as long as I can remember, he’s vowed that one day he would claim my wild, rebel heart. God knows I wanted him to try. I wanted the life he promised me in his lyrics.

But his assurances couldn’t change the past, and the infamous mafia blood in my veins guarantees my heart can’t be claimed.

Somewhere along the way, I slipped. I let myself believe we could have it all. Now a dark, menacing shadow hovers between us, mocking us for daring to hope for a normal future.

And it’s come to collect on a blood oath.

My name’s Elizabeth Borello—Libby for short. Don’t worry about forgetting it . . . He hasn’t. 

Review: Jo 

"Lyric" was a thrilling read that had me gripped. It was one of those books that you read with an ominous feeling, knowing that something bad was going to happen just around the corner. I was on the edge of my seat every step of the way. 

"I stopped worrying about the fallout. 
I let myself love him on the outside the way 
I've always loved him on the inside." 

This story sees the romance between the headstrong and defiant Libby and her rock star on/off boyfriend Maxon. Libby made the perfect heroine for a Mafia family, she was gutsy and determined. She was also head over heels in love with Maxon. Maxon was equally in love with Libby. He was an absolute hopeless romantic and desperate to put a ring on his girls finger. If only their relationship could have been so easy. With a Mafia family surrounding them, I was prepared for an exciting and unpredictable ride and that's just what I got. My heart beat faster and faster with each new chapter. This was definitely not just a sweet romance, that's for sure. 

"I needed to do whatever it took. Sacrifice our relationship. 
Break my heart. Shred my soul." 

I always love Molly's style of writing. She never fails to pull me in and keep me hooked. I was fully invested in Libby and Maxon's relationship, rooting for them with every turn of the page. I also loved that I knew a lot of the characters from Molly's previous series. It was like catching up with friends. However, this can also be read as a standalone. Next up I think is Einstein's story and I really can't wait for that one. 

"The rock star who wrote our future in lyrics. 
The boy who vowed to be my forever. 
The man who promised me the world. I loved him." 

"Lyric" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️ from me.

Release Blitz & Review: Pam Godwin's "Knotted ((Trails of Sin #1)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be part of the Release Blitz & Review for Pam Godwin's "Knotted((Trails of Sin #1)."


Synopsis:

I try to forget her.
It’s impossible.
Growing up together, Conor and I shared all our firsts.
First love, first kiss, first…


Not all our firsts
We were sixteen the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched.
I’ll never forget the sounds of her suffering.
Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma.

Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact.
Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets.
She doesn’t know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her.
I don’t deserve her, but one truth remains.

She’s mine.



Review: Jo 

I've been wanting to read another Pam Godwin book ever since reading and absolutely loving "Dark Notes", so when I saw this book, I knew it would be one for me. Because I almost never read a synopsis, I expected this one to be a sweet cowboy romance, but it was so much more than that. I loved every single second of reading "Knotted", so much so that I was gutted when the book came to an end. 

"With a hand in my hair and the other on my hip, 
he bends me into his heat and sets fire to my world." 

Jake and Conor were childhood sweethearts that were destined to be together. So much in love that their future was inevitable. That was until their story took a brutal turn that resulted in a whole lot of heartache for the young lovers. I was fully engaged throughout this gripping story between Jake and Conor. It was a novel that was filled with shocking twists, steamy sex scenes and swoon-worthy romance. 

"With every kiss, glance, smile, and evocative word, 
he doesn't just stitch my heart back together. He welds it to his own." 

This cowboy romance did not disappoint. Jake was the most gorgeous hero, so sexy and all alpha and totally in love with Conor. I loved how perfect he was for her. Jake and Conor were true soulmates and after everything they went through in this story, they proved that their relationship was meant to be. 

"We're knotted together, 
and damn if he doesn't know how to tie a knot that withstands the test of time." 

With this story, Pam Godwin has delivered a brilliantly written romance that was well worth the read. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. If you love sexy cowboys, this one should be added to your TBR. 

"I wear the skin that feels his touch. I breathe the air that fills his lungs. 
I'm the girl he wants, the one he loves, and he's mine." 

"Knotted" gets 4.5 ❤️'s from me.

When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.

Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.
