My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this student – teacher romance story. It is a well written story about a teacher and a student who are attracted to each other and after spending some time tutoring, they begin to fall for each other. Their relationship is a no no but you certainly don’t want to miss what happens with these two. I enjoyed watching their growth as well as their chemistry throughout the story. They made the story easy and entertaining to read. This is a fast paced story that is hard to put down. A shorter story that packs a punch in the romance department for sure. I really enjoyed this story and what the characters brought to the story. I highly recommend this book.

The Groomsman by Marina Hanna – Review by Char Wahtomy-Alba

The GroomsmanThe Groomsman by Marina Hanna

Mark and Lauren were only supposed to have a one night stand, but it turned into something more. Although Mark keeps trying to convince himself that he doesn’t have time for a relationship things keep heading in that direction. Lauren seems ready to dip her toes back into the dating pool, but is still skeptical of anything that seems suspicious of men after finding out her last boyfriend was married. Will Mark eventually quit being in denial and allow himself happiness with Lauren? Or will his secretive phone calls have her taking a hike?

This was a quick read and enjoyable. There are several steamy scenes and the chemistry between the characters leapt off the pages. The flow of the book was great and kept moving forward at a good pace with great character development.

DATING THE INTERN by Natalina Reis – Review by Daryian Lucas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was my first book by Natalina Reis, as well as an age gap where the woman is older. I assumed this book would be very cheesy from reading the description but found out during the first few pages it’s very natural. Ivory Tower’s skepticism with love is very relatable and doesn’t seem forced or cliche. While reading the book at first I did think it was a little weird that the author repeated the character’s full name like “Li Quang” and “Amber Lee” consistently, but I found it helped the characters stick in my head. I loved this book and am looking forward to reading more by this author.

Love Unexpected by Marina Hanna – Review by Charlisa Wahtomy-Alba

Julia “Jules” Connors is a young woman trying to make a name for herself in advertising and marketing, but the company she is currently with doesn’t want to make changes no matter how much they like her ideas. She heard about a job opening at Foster Advertising and Marketing so she decides to make the move to that agency. While out at the bar with her girlfriends she meets eyes with a handsome stranger. When he goes to leave he unexpectedly pulls her in for a mind blowing kiss that she can’t stop thinking about. When she walks into her new job the following Monday 10 minutes late she shares an elevator with the mysterious stranger who she comes to find out is her boss.

Adam Foster wasn’t expecting to run into the beautiful blonde, but he is pleasantly surprised when he finds that she is one of the new recruits. Although there is a no fraternization clause in the contracts he is willing to bend the rules for this woman. Normally he doesn’t have relationships that last more than a month, but there is something about Jules that makes him want to keep her forever. Is he willing to open himself up to a serious relationship or will he push her away like all the others?

This books title describes perfectly what this book entails. There is some crude language used in the book so I would not recommend it for anyone under the age of maybe 16. I would say even 18, but I’m sure most 16 -year-olds have either used this same language themselves or heard it being used by friends. There were some moments in here that the main characters kind of got on my nerves as they were either rushing to judgement or not using their words to express how they truly felt. Over all though I did enjoy the book as it was easy to read. The pace and tone of the book were well set and it drew me in.
