Nerdgasm by Kimberly Reese

Image
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

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-fiancé 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…
