Back in the Ring (The Predator Series Book 4) by Brooke May – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Back in the RingBack in the Ring by Brooke May
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Back in the Ring by Brooke May was my first book this author, it might be the fourth book in the Predator series but you don’t need to read the other to fall in love with this wonderful second chance romance. Bijou Augustine is a young widow who’s struggling to keep her husband youth center running while raising her “tween” daughter. Everyone in her small town is telling Bijou to sell the center but she is very determined to keep her husband’s dream alive. Can a stranger willing to help out at the center, be the second chance Bijou needs?

From the prologue to the epilogue you will go through some many emotions and feel everything Bijou and Noah go through. I am always a little nervous reading a new author because you don’t know what their writing style is like. But I can honestly say this Brooke’s writing flowed easily and kept me flipping the pages. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

Claimed Royalty: (Crowned and Claimed Series, Book 1) by Betty Shreffler – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Claimed RoyaltyClaimed Royalty by Betty Shreffler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Betty Shreffer is becoming one of my favorite authors to read; every one of her books just pulls me in and leaves me wanting more. Claimed Royalty was an amazing forbidden romance with a side of great steamy moments. To me this was a different take on a royal story, instead of the guy trying to find a queen; we have a princess. Fiora is looking to become Queen but first, she has to go through trials to prove that she is strong, brave and a quick thinker, all along with finding her King. One major problem she doesn’t want any of the royals children, she only has eyes for childhood friend/Arms Man, Matheas.

So many good/bad things happened in this book that I don’t want to spoil them. I can’t wait for Twice Claimed I have to know what is going to happen next.

Coming Home: The Sequel to Flowers in December by Jane Suen – Review by Jessica Leombruno

COMING HOME (Flowers in December, #2)COMING HOME by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Coming Home: The Sequel to Flowers in December by Jane Suen was a sweet fast-paced novella. Coming Home was told from multiple points of view and I recommend that you read Flowers in December to get a better understanding of what’s happening.

It has been four months since Connor’s mother’s death and he has decided to come home for his first Christmas without her. He runs into an old face and someone he has thought about for months but has that person moved on?

This was a wonderfully written novella. But I need more, you left me wanting to know what is going to happen next.

Claimed (The Torzial Affair Book 3) by Via Mari – Review by Jessica Leombruno

CLAIMED (The Torzial Affair Book 3)CLAIMED by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Claimed is book 3 in The Torzial Affair by Via Mari might have been the best in the series. Just a far waring this book has some intense BDSM scenes in it. With one of Jenny’s problems dealt with now, they just have to figure out how to deal with the mafia. All I’m going to say is – Matt to the rescue this time. I think Brian and Jenny were their hottest in this book and Brian’s dirty mouth was even dirtier –YUM!

Via what can I say about your writing that hasn’t been said yet. Great characters, twist/action and of course great steamy panty melting moments. After reading this series, I am definitely going to go back and read Chase and Kate’s story – I just need to know how everything started.

If you’re like me and likes action with a whole lot of sex then you need to read these books!

Rules of Engagement: A Single Dad Romance (Platonically Complicated Book 3) by Mika Jolie – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Rules of EngagementRules of Engagement by Mika Jolie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rules of Engagement by Mika Jolie was the perfect mix of a single dad, friends to lovers, best friend’s sister fake relationship romance. Boy, that a lot of troupes in one book but I have been looking forward to this story since I read The Boy Friend.

Lucas and Kate have been friends for decades but when Lucas’s ex is trying to take his daughter to France full time; Kate decides to play his fiancée to try and keep his daughter. We all know this plan will backfire on them but it was sexy hot reading about them trying to just keep thing as friends.

It was great to see a little Dean and Cori mixed in this book. Now we just need to find Cam a girl – can’t wait for that book.

Eight Steps: A Friend to Lovers Romance by Taylor Sullivan – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Movie Star (21st Century Courtesan Book 2) by Pamela DuMond – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Movie Star (21st Century Courtesan, #2)Movie Star by Pamela DuMond
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Movie Star is the second book in the 21st Century Courtesan by Pamela DuMond. I might have liked this a little better than Player. I mean who wouldn’t want to go to movie premieres and Hollywood parties with a sexy man candy. And don’t get me started on the steaminess that goes on in the bedroom. With everything Evie has going on with Jake, she still has a “Fan” lurking in the shadows. Pamela’s writing is unique and kept you guessing with the twists. Her secondary characters are enjoyable and I want more of them. Can’t wait for the next book in this series.

Bound (The Torzial Affair Book 2) by Via Mari – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Bound (The Torzial Affair Book 2)Bound by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bound is the second book in The Torzial Affair by Via Mari. Jenny is such a strong independent woman will she be able to let Brian protect her by taking control of things outside of the bedroom? I didn’t think I could fall any more in love with Brian and Jenny. I love the way Jenny still knows how to push Brian buttons.

Via, another great book that kept me glued to my kindle with every page. Bound was just as steamy and non-stop twists just like Shattered. I can’t wait to see how this series is going to end.

Shattered (The Torzial Affair Book 1) by Via Mari – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Shattered (The Torzial Affair Book 1)Shattered by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Shattered is the first book in the Torzial Affair series by Via Mari and I absolutely loved it. This dark, gritty and sexy book is something I have been looking to read for some time. It’s a little Fifty Shades mixed with a dark mafia romance. Even if you have never read Via’s books before (like me); it was easy to understand what happened in the last series where you first met Jenny to now with her and Brian.

Via’s writing style will grip you, pull you in and having you begging for this next book. Everywhere you turned there was a twist or shocking information coming at you. Then you get some sexy, panty dropping scenes with just Jenny and Brian that will have you needing a very cold shower. I can’t wait to dive into Bound and see what is waiting for Jenny and Brian next.

Full Glasses and Burju Shoes by Blake Blessing – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Full Glasses and Burju ShoesFull Glasses and Burju Shoes by Blake Blessing
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Full Glasses and Burju Shoes was my first book by Blake Blessing. This was a beautiful story that will pull at every emotion you have. Emil and Perrin’s story felt so real like a friend was telling it to me. I loved how when the author was describing the dancing, I could see it so clear in my mind. I don’t know what it is about military stories, I always cry; maybe the subject matter hits a little close to home for me. Highly recommend reading this and remember “always keep your glasses full”.
