Synopsis: Riley Hope, a senior at NYU, appears to be on top of the world: a loving mother, ride-or-die friends, and a long-time boyfriend destined for the National Hockey League… She puts on a smile for the world but, behind it, Riley’s drowning with fears for the future. Then Ben Fagan comes crashing into her life. British and alone in the Big Apple, the struggling actor is looking for an escape—minimum commitment, maximum fun—anything to avoid returning across the pond. As they form an unlikely bond, Riley keeps her reality from Ben, but how long can she hold back the truth…and is Ben keeping his own secrets, too?
Synopsis: Jesse Kingston is a tall, dark, and gorgeous temptation I find hard to resist. I was twelve when I started crushing on him, and seventeen when I met him by chance. Now here I am, twenty-three, and I’m one of the two actresses in the video for his band’s latest single. It ends up not being as simple as doing a job and going home… There is no avoiding him and, after spending so much time with him, I’m not sure I want to. When he proposes a weekend together I throw caution to the wind and I say yes. The only question is: Will one weekend be enough? Will our time together end up changing this bad boy or will it end up changing me?
On Wednesday, USA Today did an exclusive cover reveal for Jacquelyn Middleton’s new book. The author had been teasing fans for weeks about this and when the day finally came we were all squealing with delight. I loved “London Belongs to Me” and couldn’t wait to get my hands on “London Can You Wait” when it came out, so I was excited to be given the opportunity to be part of the second phase of sharing this novel… which was to take place yesterday.
As soon as I woke up in the morning, I rushed to my computer hoping for an email from the author with the details. But my computer wouldn’t turn on. It took me too long to realize I had grabbed my roommate’s dead computer rather than my own, and nothing was going to resuscitate that thing.
Once I located my own laptop, the internet wouldn’t connect. Our wifi can be patchy at times and yesterday was apparently a really bad day for connectivity. I tried multiple times, but had no luck.
Then, once I was able to get online this morning, my book blog wouldn’t let me log in. It kept saying my account didn’t exist and/or my password was wrong. I finally gave into doing a password reset, but it was being sent to an email I no longer use. Said email did not want to let me log in because I’m in a new country… And, yeah, you get the idea.
I may be a day behind, yet it is better late than never!
Note: I am reviewing BOTH series by this author, and have included the synopsis of the first book of each series.
Synopsis: Nothing’s sexier than a man, or five, with power tools, so one could blame Kate for leaning out the window for a better view. The nasty fall that follows isn’t part of her fantasy–but the man who saves her from splattering the sidewalk is definitely the star. When Mike personally attends to her injuries, Kate has no choice but to surrender to the chemistry that’s been arcing between them since day one.
Synopsis: Salome “Sally” Rider is flooring the gas pedal of her pink ’69 Mustang, desperate to outrun the memory of two of her fellow mechanics getting busy with some bar skank on the hood of a classic car… On her custom paint job no less. Eli “King Cobra” London and the rest of the thoroughly rattled Hot Rods are determined to show her in the sexiest possible way that she’s not merely an interchangeable part in their well-oiled machine. Yet just as Eli gets up the nerve to make a very indecent proposal, a ghost rises from her painful past threatening to slam the brakes on their future before they can get it in gear.
Synopsis: Jenny meets Chance for the first time when she is assigned as his partner in class, and they rescue a doomed assignment with one clever lie. Suddenly the whole school is now convinced she and the biggest heartbreaker have been best friends forever. It’s amazing how quickly a lie can grow―especially when you really want it to be the truth. Through it all, they hold on to the fact that they are “just friends” but that might be the biggest lie of all. Continue reading “Review: Just Friends by Tiffany Pitcock”
The thing I love most about the Wait for You series by J. Lynn are the male main characters. These guys are gorgeous, a little cocky, but kind and loving. They would be too good to be true if they didn’t have their own flaws and a few secrets, which is likely why the author ensured the men weren’t perfect. However that is not the most important thing, but rather how these guys treat the women in the books:
Plot: Jillian and Brock are thrown back together after their friendship had imploded. The story occasionally goes back to the past with Jillian’s memories so we slowly discover exactly what went wrong to have caused her to cut him completely from her life. Normally flashbacks annoy me, but in this I looked forward to them as my curiosity was killing me.
Setting: This novel takes place six years after the last book and we are back in Shepherdstown. Lima Academy built a satellite training centre near to where the owner’s daughter had been attending school and much of the novel takes place at that centre.
