Before Ben by Cynthia Eden!

Synopsis

Enemies make the best lovers.

It was a one night stand with her worst enemy. Ben Wilde was cocky, charming, and sexy as the best sin. He was also Courtney McKenna’s weakness. Every single inch of his muscled perfection was trouble and temptation. They’d sparred in the courtroom more times than she could count, and the tension between them had always been red-hot. One night should have been all she needed to get the guy out of her head and her dreams. Only…it wasn’t.

Because before Ben, life was easy. Life after Ben? Hot. Dark. And dangerous.

Courtney tries to fight her scorching desire for Ben even as they plan to face-off in court once again. Even as they fight for power. But once you cross some lines, there is no going back. And Ben doesn’t plan to let her go anywhere.

He’s had a taste, but Ben wants a whole lot more.

Ben Wilde has never believed that opposites attract, but there is something about button-downed, prim and proper Courtney that has always driven him wild. And when he gets her in his bed, the attraction he feels for her changes into a sensual obsession. Sure, they can be enemies in the courtroom, but in the bedroom, they are meant to be something else entirely.

Be careful what you want…

Someone out there doesn’t want Ben to have Courtney. Someone who will do anything to stop their attraction. But that predator in the dark is messing with the wrong man. When it comes to Courtney’s safety, Ben will break every rule in the book. He will stop pretending to be nice and show the world just how wicked and dangerous he can truly be. Because Courtney is his, and Ben will play dirty, he’ll play rough, and he will destroy anyone who threatens her.

My thoughts 💭

I enjoyed this book. Ben and Courtney were so cute. Courtney thinks Ben is her enemy but Ben doesn’t feel that way at all. When she’s in trouble Ben steps in immediately to keep her protected. It takes a little while for Courtney to realize Ben isn’t her enemy but her white knight and the one she can’t live without! I liked their chemistry. I enjoyed the other characters as well.

Synopsis

A DEMON WITH FIRE IN HIS BLOOD…

Groomed to slaughter, Morthanion spent millennia battling the forces of light, claiming countless lives. Captured and banished to a remote island by the Mage Council, his fury knows no bounds – until he meets her. Mesmerized by her voice and beauty, he is powerless.

A WOMAN HE COULDN’T RESIST…

Aria knows survival means avoiding the other islanders at all costs. Yet when she encounters the dangerous, persistent Morthanion, it’s clear all the rules have changed. But can she forgive him the wrongs he’d done and grant him her trust…and love?

AN ISLAND MADE PRISON FOR THE UNFORGIVEN…

Stripped of magic, Morthanion understands that savagery is necessary to survive. When Aria’s true nature is revealed, the other inmates will stop at nothing to have her – and the demon would fight the entire world to keep her safe.

My Thoughts 💭

I loved this book! Morthanion is a demon who has been stripped of his powers and banished to a island for criminals. While getting familiar with his surroundings he hears the beautiful Aria sing and feels he must have her. Aria escapes him and tricks him and he’s totally obsessed. He realizes she’s his mate and her running around unclaimed makes him crazy. I loved how they were together. This book absolutely kept my interest! I definitely recommend this if you love a demon trying to be nice and very possessive of his mate.

Synopsis

She’s the maddening, ridiculously cute trespasser who sneaks on my property to play with my rocks.

(No euphemism—she really does just look at rocks.)

He’s the grumpy, unbelievably handsome rancher who has the best rocks to study in the area.

(What on earth would rocks be a euphemism for?)

After months of resisting the urge, I finally haul her over my shoulder to escort her off my land.

Really, why I haven’t done it before now is beyond me.

After months of being clueless, I finally notice that his land isn’t the only thing hard around me.

Really, how it escaped my attention before now is beyond me.

She’s so damn responsive.

He’s so brawny and burly.

The next time she sneaks in, I’m ready for her.

The next time I sneak in, he shocks the heck out of me.

To be fair, the woman is utterly injury-prone.

To be clear, the man has apparently lost his ever-loving mind.

I just want her to stay safe and out of trouble for a change.

For a few hours, tops, while I take care of some ranch things that can’t wait.

So…I cuff her to the bed.

And now I’m wondering what the hell’s going to happen next.

His constant alpha protectiveness is, yes, very sweet, but seriously?

I should be more outraged by this.

Really, I should be.

But…now I’m kind of curious what’s going to happen next.

My Thoughts 💭

I loved this book. Cade has a cute trespasser he doesn’t mind but likes to look out for. Katelyn is the clumsy but adorable trespasser who everyone loves! I loved their chemistry! I loved how close everyone was.

My Thoughts 💭

I enjoyed this book. I liked the banter between Honey and Tidus. The book made me laugh and tear up! Tidus embraces his bad reputation and it seemed he didn’t care what people thought of him until he met Honey. Honey was a ray of sunshine that Tidus didn’t feel he deserved but wanted her anyway. Honey was like the only person who’d put up with Tidus’ foolishness because she didn’t experience his past wrongdoing, she only saw the man he was currently and it was cute! I loved them and their crazy family.

Publication Date: May 6, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance, Standalone

AVAILABLE NOW!

SYNOPSIS

To get what he wants, he’ll have to play a game of dirty pool.

Michel Marcello never wanted to be a mafioso like every other man in his family—he wanted to be more. That doesn’t mean he’s unfamiliar with the life, or that he can’t hold his own against other made men.

They forgot where he came from …

His chance encounter with the fiery and beautiful daughter of Detroit’s most notorious Irish mob boss stokes flames beyond the ones that ignite between Michel and Gabbie Casey. Rivals shouldn’t mix, but these opposites have never been more attracted, either.

The lines between family loyalty, their duties, and responsibility begin to blur.

Love ruins all.

But these two aren’t the only ones playing this game, and it just became far more dangerous to get out alive.

*

Dirty Pool is a standalone romantic suspense.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed reading Michel and Gabbie’s story! They just wanted to be together no matter what was going on with their families and I loved it. Gabbie was a spitfire and I just adored her! Michel may not be a made man but he is just as cunning as they are and I was in awe of the chaos he was capable of. I definitely recommend this if you enjoy some forbidden love!

IMMBoyfriendBargainBookCover55x85_MEDIUM-new

Wanted: one hot guy with rock-hard abs and a big stick

Broke and desperate, Sugar Ryan has no use for arrogant, bad boy athletes . . . until she’s forced to bargain with the cockiest of them all.

If only he knew she was alive.

Her mission? Get on this hockey player’s radar any way possible.

Zack Morgan is the king of the ice and the bedroom—but nothing prepares him for the mystery girl who shows up everywhere he does—frat parties, his favorite bar, and finally his front door with an offer he can’t refuse. The only rule in her boyfriend bargain: no falling in love.

But after one (um, two) smoking-hot hookups, he’s done with pretending and vows to make their fake relationship real. Too bad she can’t trust a player with a reputation for breaking hearts.

Will this hockey star score his forever girl or will their Boyfriend Bargain end in heartbreak?

Excerpt:

“We should kiss, just get it out of the way and move on,” I say, sure of the crazy idea as each second passes.

There’s a hitch in Z’s breath, and his eyes go straight to my lips. “Works for me.”

“But just one. None of that fancy tongue work.”

“Afraid of falling in love with me?” He grins.

Well. My eyes take in the broad shoulders and the dragon tattoo on his muscled chest. He’s definitely my type: pure, grade A male hotness—exactly what I don’t need. “I won’t fall in love.”

Another grin. “Liar.”

Hook Shot by Kennedy Ryan!

Length: 408 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

A deeply emotional standalone romance set in the worlds of professional basketball and high fashion.

Divorced. Single dad. Traded to a losing squad. Cheated on, betrayed, exposed.

My perfect life blew up in my face and I’m still picking up the pieces.

The last thing I need is her.

A wildflower. A storm. A woman I can’t resist.

Lotus DuPree is a kick to my gut and a wrench in my plans

from the moment our eyes meet.

I promised myself I wouldn’t trust a woman again,

but I’ve never wanted anyone the way I want Lo.

She’s not the plan I made, but she’s the risk I have to take.

A warrior. A baller. The one they call Gladiator. Kenan Ross charged into my life smelling all good, looking even better and snatching my breath from the moment we met.

The last thing I need is him.

I’m working on me. Facing my pain and conquering my demons.

I’ve seen what trusting a man gets you.

I. Don’t. Have. Time. For. This.

But he just keeps coming for me.

Keeps knocking down my defenses and stealing my excuses

one by one.

He never gives up, and now…I’m not sure I want him to.

My Thoughts 💭

I absolutely loved Lotus and Kenan! Their story gave me all the feels! They had a connection at first sight and Lotus had tried hard to avoid it but it was inevitable! As soon as she swore off men for a while the perfect man for her makes his entrance to her life. They both were so loving and understanding with each other! This was a wonderfully written book and I definitely recommend it!
