Surrender (Harris Brothers #4) - Amy Daws

Image
Blurb:
One night of complete surrender is all it takes. Gareth Harris is Manchester United’s reclusive star defender. He has control over all aspects of his life. But a lifetime of supporting his siblings and filling in for an emotionally absent father has taken its toll. Sloan Montgomery is a clothing stylist whose world was turned upside down when she found herself pregnant and moving to Manchester with a man who was never supposed to be her forever. Now recently divorced and struggling with shared custody of her daughter, control is a fleeting concept for this American living in England. Both Gareth and Sloan are in need of a release. A moment in time where they can forget about their pasts and family pressures...and just... …surrender. No one could predict what happens when both of their defences are down. Surrender is part one of The Final Harris Brother Duet and concludes with Dominate. The Final Harris Brother Duet reads great as a duo, but to maximize enjoyment, check out the first t…

Image
Blurb:

Julie Prescott is the life of every party. She’s loud, witty, and uses her body and pretty face to get whatever she wants. She’s never had a problem hooking up with guys, or ditching them when they don’t live up to her standards. Julie has a list of exes a mile long and a reputation to match, but she’s looking for more than just a degree in college. She’s looking for Mr. Perfect.
Ben Sutherland is the enigmatic bassist of a popular local band. Born blind, Ben depends on his other senses to help him understand the world around him on a deeper level. His sultry voice and musical talent might make it impossible for him to go unnoticed on campus, but Ben isn’t looking for fame or groupies. He’s looking to perfect his music. Julie’s been lusting after Ben for months and when she finally meets him at a party, her confidence is shaken when she discovers she can’t use her physical beauty to charm him. Even though she's always relied on her looks, it’s her personality that wins Ben …

Nerdgasm by Kimberly Reese

Blurb:

nerdgasm (noun): an emotional climax at the peak of intense (sometimes sexual) excitement, characterized by a deep attraction to nerdy things and/or people.
My stutter makes it easy to become the center of attention for all the wrong reasons, so I try hard to stay out of the spotlight. But when Addison Mitchell breezes into the class I TA for, she turns my world upside down, shaking me out of my comfort zone. Confident and bold, her wandering hands set my body on fire. She sees the real me, and she’s still interested. I’m completely out of my element, yet I’ve never felt more alive. Fingers crossed we're not a one-off fling. I have a lot to learn, but I’m willing to make this work. I’m going to give her more than a nerdgasm. I’m going to give her my heart. 
My Review:
This novella was a sweet and light read with an amazing hero and a great heroine. Theo and Addy are definitely a match made in heaven. I liked how the story started out, giving us a chance to see how Theo was a…

Pull You Through - Kaylee Ryan

Slade
Life is a series of events, one leading you to another. The hell I lived through with my drug-addicted parents led me to the Marine Corps. Committing my life to my country was easy. My brothers were my family–all I had and all I needed. I wasn’t looking for her, but I should have known life had other plans. It led me to her. Austyn the moment we met, I knew he was different–I just didn’t realize he’d change my life. He was a guy on leave, an acquaintance. Until he was something more, something unforgettable. I never imagined he’d leave ten days later, taking a piece of me with him. Then again, maybe I did know. I just didn’t care. He was worth it. My Review: I have to admit that i find it hard to write this review. I was excited for the book and started it the minute I got my hands on the ARC. Slade has been through some tough stuff in his life, and my heart hurt for him. It was a nice contrast to Austyn, who had everything a girl could want. It was also refreshing to have two ch…

Firsts - C.L. Matthews

Image
Blurb:
She’s forbidden.
Too young, too pure, and not mine.
I’ll break all the rules to be with her.
She belongs to me, even if she doesn't know it yet.

He’s taboo.
Too old, too experienced, and my stepfather.
I’ll cross every line to be with him.
He's not mine, and never will be.

It’s not about the danger of what's forbidden,
it’s about the pleasure we get from it.

All consequences be damned.
My Review:
This is my first taboo book. I mean... Yes, it is, no questions, but saying it's taboo makes me feel dirty, so I'm just gonna say it's not your usual romance. C.L. Was so kind to give me a review copy and damn, I'm so glad I tried this book. I'm already panting for book 2, Lasts, although I know my favorite, Brax, doesn't really stand a chance. 
This is a triangle (yeah, the fan-fights have been obvious on FB, haven't they?) and I won't lie, it's clear who the author favors. However, I'm still hoping... There's always hope, right??

“The best way to get over your sh**ty ex-fiancĂ© is to get under a shiny new stud…”
As soon as Mr. Tall, Blond, and Handsome walks into that bar, I know he’s the hook-up I need to get over stupid Cheater Kyle. A few stolen kisses in a dark hallway, and I’m pretty sure we’re headed for a home run—until he disappears without a trace. Whatever. Men are all snakes in the grass, and I don’t need a new one anyway. I resolve to forget about his perfect lips (and chest of steel) and instead focus on turning my Granny’s old beach house into a profitable B&B.
What I don’t expect is for him to show up the next day in my kitchen!
You see, my sexy mystery man is none other than Jax Roland, the drop-dead gorgeous home impr…
