JOANIE – Virgin Vampire 2

A hugely fun vampire reverse harem.

Whilst Joanie could be read as a stand alone story, the ending does segue into the next book and there are also a few ‘lose ends’. I wouldn’t class it as cliffhanger, but the story line is still quite open. I haven’t read Book #1 but had absolutely no problem picking up the plot, understanding the ‘world’ it was set in, or knowing who was whom. There are a few spoilers in this but not enough that it’s put me off catching up and reading Vivian, Virgin Vampire .

This is a wonderful mix of new adult, paranormal, reverse-harem, romantic comedy. It’s written from quite a few pov’s but it’s very easy to know who’s voice you are ‘hearing’ and I found it both easy, as well as extremely enjoyable, to read.

Joanie is a bit crazy, a lot loyal and an altogether wonderful character. She really drew me into the story and was a big part of why I enjoyed this. Whilst Aldren, Adrian and Abel are quite distinct characters, we don’t ‘hear’ their voice enough to really get an in depth feel for them. However this is a light and fun read, so for me that didn’t matter too much.

What you will find is that it has a well thought through plot, with some unexpected twists and intriguing revelations as the story unfolds. It was highly entertaining and left me wanting so much more. I will most certainly be reading Lucy’s story when it is released.

Highly recommended to those who love a steamy vampire story and don’t object to a few laughs along the way.


“99% positive that I was the only person at graduation still carrying her v-card.”

When Joanie’s best friend Vivian goes missing after prom she knows that there is something ‘the parents’ aren’t telling her. 

The more she investigates the stranger things get. But it isn’t until she finds herself kidnapped and craving blood that things really get crazy.

Meet the Triple A’s, three of the hottest triplets known to humankind. Alden, Adrian, and Abel have been tasked with keeping Joanie safe.

The only problem is that they can’t keep their hands off of her–or she can’t keep her hands off of them.

CRUSH ON YOU

A 4.5 star contemporary rom-com by Amelia Wilde

This is a warm smooch of a tale about how first, second and sometimes even third impressions aren’t always correct. I’d describe it as the perfect ‘pick me up’ book. Its both a book you should pick up, to read, and a heart warming tale that will pick your spirits up and leave you with that feel-good factor.

Crush on you, is a funny, gentle, smoking hot, romantic comedy and is everything you didn’t know you needed. It has two of the most adorable, yet sexy, characters in Roman and Jenny. This is a couple you just won’t be able to get enough of.

At school Jenny was the awkward geeky girl, the one who had to teach herself how to fit in. Roman was the hot guy everyone wanted to notice them, and he’s not grown any less hot with age. Let’s just say he wasn’t quite the arrogant player that Jenny remembered from her high school days. In fact both main characters were incredibly easy to like and are part of what made this a truly great read.

Whilst I want to describe this as quite a ‘sweet’ romance, that’s because of how it made me feel rather than ‘heat’ levels. This has plenty of hot bedroom (and waterfall, and elsewhere) scenes. The pace was perfect, quick enough to completely hold my attention throughout but not so fast that I ever got lost. The moment I dipped my toes into this book I was just buoyed along on a journey of love, secrets, mistakes and laughter.

I really, really enjoyed this book and I’m sure you will too.

Blurb

She’s my new employee. So she’s 100% off-limits.

And that’s not all.

Jenny London is the girl everyone overlooked in high school, including me. I had no idea that she’d gone from ugly duckling to brunette bombshell until the moment she stepped into my office wearing a red bikini and a smile.

If this is revenge for ignoring her in school, she’s serving it hot. And if it’s not? Doesn’t matter. The sight of her around the office is driving me wild. 

Too wild. I have a resort to save and a business to run. I need my head in the game, not tugging down the straps of her bikini.

I have to stop myself from falling. Office romances are forbidden for a reason: to protect the Bliss Resort and its legacy.

But let’s be honest…it’s already too late.

MAN CANDY by Lila Monroe


⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐




I finished this book with a silly grin and a gooey warm feeling, having loved every page of it.


If you want a fun and steamy romp, with a nice dash of angst and a lot of humour then Best Man wonderfully fits the bill. Fitz and Becca are an amazing pair, I totally fell in love with the both of them. Fitz is sexy, charming, smooth and full of as many insecurities as the lovely, hardworking, caring Becca.

Theirs was a fast paced, whirl of a story, starting with a sudden decision to marry and dashing none-stop to either paradise or purgatory. I really felt we got to know both these characters really well. There were more male perspective chapters in this book, which definitely helped too. It was rounded of nicely with some wonderful new side characters, a few of whom we will be seeing more of, along with several more familiar faces.


Best Man was just such an easy to read story, and that isn’t an easy feat to achieve. The writing flows so very smoothly, in a way that ensures your attention never wavers. The plot and pace held my interest throughout and the characters had both depth and character. This is a book that I am only too happy to recommend to romance lovers.

Arthur ‘Fitz’ Fitzgerald is the hottest, most reckless playboy in town… and my new husband?!

Believe me, I never dreamed that I’d be walking down the aisle to a quickie marriage with a total stranger, but thanks to my eccentric god-mother, an iron-clad will, and a blind, three-legged cat called Alfred (don’t ask), I need to get hitched ASAP. And when the perfect candidate leaves me at the alter, there’s only one person crazy – and drunk – enough to step up at the last minute.

The best man.

Also known as the man most likely to get caught romping with three Rockettes in the back of a Sex and the City tourbus. The man who could melt my panties at twenty paces – and make me want to pour a bucket of ice-water over his head. The man I just pledged to love and honor and… oh god, WHAT HAVE I DONE?!

Our arrangement was clear: keep up the charade long enough for me to claim my inheritance and send my slime-ball cousins packing. Our plan is working perfectly.

Then Fitz decides to change the rules….
