Review- El Malo by K. Webster

El MaloEl Malo by K. Webster

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rosa the head maid of the Estrada Estate has a secret. She is there to take Javier Estrada down not clean up his boxers. Unfortunately or fortunately in Rosa’s case, the best-laid plans don’t always work out the way we intended.

Javier Estrada is the head of a deadly gang called “El Malo”. He is busy building his empire and although he has noticed his hot maid, he doesn’t believe in getting involved with the help. That is until he can no longer deny his attraction to his trying to be plain but failing miserably, Rosa.

Rosa is strong yet vulnerable. She endured a tragedy that many would not recover from and life has never been the same for her. I loved her sass, her ability to do her “job” and not get caught for four years says a lot about how good she works for the agency. She has Michael, her contact, to lean on but even the relationship has been stilted as of late. K. Webster showed us and made us experience the internal struggle Rosa was having.

Javier is ruthless and hot as fuque!!! Even someone who is so violent and dangerous as Javier is, it is hard to deny the scorching hot attraction that he has to Rosa. K. Webster has made me remember why I love the dangerous men and their ability to have a soft side.

The story was sexy as all get out. The sex scenes are hot and left you feeling like you need a cigarette. But like a kid on Christmas morning that finished opening my gifts, I was still hoping for more. I’m greedy that way.

K. Webster has rapidly become a one-click author for me!
If you are a fan of Mafia books this one is for you. If you like romance this one is for you. Highly recommend this to everyone.
There is so much I want to cover here but I don’t want to ruin the story and all the goodies that it entails so I will say this, READ THIS BOOK!!

Love Broken by J.D. Hollyfield

Love BrokenLove Broken by J.D. Hollyfield

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have read EVERY single J.D. Hollyfield book and I can say she only gets better with each novel she writes.
This latest work is a bit more angsty than her previous works but it is no less wonderful and entertaining. Katie and Charlie are two VERY flawed characters that work hard at being flawed. You start to think that Katie enjoys being cynical and stubborn but in reality, it is all a facade. She is broken and only love can mend her. Charlie is in his own pit of despair and he is literally stuck between a rock and a hard place when he meets Katie and really falls hard.
I found myself rooting for them to get their heads out of their butts and be honest and COMMUNICATE with each other but alas if they did, there would be no book, lol!
I am very happy to say that even though this book cranks up the Angst level, there is still a snarky and witty female lead in Katie, this is no less than I expect from Ms. Hollyfield. We also get a handsome and sweet and VERY patient leading man in Charlie.
Ms. Hollyfield keeps you on the edge of your seat on this roller coaster of emotion and hot sex!

*RELEASE BLITZ* Love Broken by J.D. Hollyfield

Title: Love Broken
Author: J.D. Hollyfield
Genre: RomCom/Contemporary
Release Date: February 26, 2018

My name is Katie Beller, but the world, as of late, knows me as Bailey Swan, the love guru behind my bestselling book.

Want the shortened version? Here it is: 

Love was stupid.

A fake. A farce

Love was broken. 

Women everywhere were eating up my advice and fighting back against fake love. My book started a relationship revolution. And I stood by my story. 

Until I met Charlie Bates.

When I throw all my own rules and advice out the window after a week-long rendezvous, I start to wonder just how real my words were. Maybe love might be just a little more complicated than I thought. 

Maybe I’m the one who’s love broken.

 

Abby McCarthy – “If you want to swoon, laugh, smile, and even blush, pick up this romcom!”

 

Dawn, Two Unruly Girls – “I was HOOKED.”

Next Chapter Book Blog – “Five trillion heart wrenching amaze-balls stars!!!”

Review: The Hookup by Kristen Ashley

The Hookup (Moonlight and Motor Oil, #1)The Hookup by Kristen Ashley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Johnny and Izzy have moved into my top 5 KA couples.

Izzy is a strong and independent woman and she holds her own. She has no misconceptions of the relationship she has with Johnny, until she does.

Johnny is still feeling the sting from his ex leaving him and doesn’t realize what he has until he almost loses it forever.

This is a classic KA book but at the same time, it is not! There is a LOT of sex but not too much. There is some angst but even though Johnny is an alpha he isn’t a jerky alpha like Luke (Rock Chick series) or Tate (Sweet Dreams) Once he pulls his finger out of his behind and realizes his feelings he is actually beyond sweet and right up there with Ty Walker (Lady Luck) and Jake Spears (The Will) in the sweetness department.

This book has drama, a bit of suspense and some kick but side characters.

BEWARE: there are some things that I hope she addresses in the next book. Parental issues and Izzy’s crazy ex.

For those of you that like KA’s books (ME!!!) this is just what the doctor ordered. I have read it twice since the release and its only been out for 2 weeks 🙂

I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

*LIVE* Creed’s Expectations by J.D. Hollyfield

Title: Creed’s Expectations
Series: #Hotcom Series
Author: J.D. Hollyfield
Genre: RomCom 
Release Date: September 18, 2017 
Lies, lust, and wickedly intriguing expectations.

A fresh new start for Kasey Bishop leads her to a night she most definitely won’t forget. An inviting, yet indecent proposal that shows her she might not be as innocent as she once seemed. 

Deceit, desire, and the hunger for forbidden expectations.

She was off limits. That’s what made her the perfect pawn in Creed Monroe’s plan for revenge. Until he got his first taste. 

Explosive chemistry, heat, and an instant connection…these two might exceed each other’s expectations.

When the roguish bad boy is forced to come clean as his vengeful secrets begin to unravel, will Kasey continue to accept Creed’s forbidden expectations? Or will she have a few expectations of her own?

Some Sort of Crazy by Melanie Harlow

Some Sort of Crazy (Happy Crazy Love, #2)Some Sort of Crazy by Melanie Harlow
Synopsis:

When a psychic tells Natalie Nixon her life is about to be upended by a mysterious stranger, she laughs it off. After all, she has everything she’s ever wanted—a successful bakery, a the perfect boyfriend, and the keys to her dream house.

Who could possibly make her want to throw all that away?

Then Miles Haas comes back to town.

But he’s no stranger—they’ve known each other since high school. Plus, he’s only around for the summer, he’s still a shameless playboy, and he makes a living writing articles for a men’s magazine with titles like ‘Should You Bang the Boss’s Daughter? A Flowchart’ and ‘Butt Stuff for Beginners: A Field Guide.’

He’s not the man of her dreams, and she’s not about to abandon everything she’s worked so hard for just for a little fun. Except he makes her laugh like no one else, smells like heaven, and looks sexy as hell in those panty-melting glasses.

**SOME SORT OF CRAZY is a full-length standalone romance.*
Amy W’s rating: 5 of 5 stars

Miles and Natalie have something that many couples sorely lack. History. Positive history that is. They are friends and have never crossed that line. But that does not mean they both haven’t secretly thought about it. This was a sweet and sexy friends to lovers story. I could not stop reading it once I finally was able to dedicate time to immersing myself in the story.

I found Natalie identifiable on more levels that I am comfortable with. I also found Miles and Dan’s characters are a tad bit to realistic because I have known many “Miles” and “Dan’s” in my lifetime. But that is what I liked about this series these are people that I could know in real life and I could like (at least most of them)

I love that Melanie Harlow may be writing a new series but she never forgets to throw in a couple of “Frenched” characters. As usual with any of her books I laughed out loud, swore at my Kindle and had to fan myself because the sexy scenes were super-HOT!

This series is HIGHLY recommended. All books in her series are able to be read as standalones BUT for the full story I recommend you read “Some Sort of Happy”

I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.

Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
