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

Eight Steps to Alpha (Nerdy by Nature, #1)Eight Steps to Alpha by Taylor Sullivan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Eight Steps to Alpha is book 1 in the Nerdy by Nature series by Taylor Sullivan and a first for me by this author. Elliot wants to get a girl in his office to notice him so he goes to his best friend Fe for help. Fe takes on the task of changing Elliot from a nice nerdy guy into a hot alpha male. But will the plan backfire on them and spark something between Fe and Elliot?

This was hilarious sweet friends to loves book. I laugh from the beginning to the end of this book; Fe and Elliott were sweet and lovable. I can’t wait to see if there is going to be more books in this series. If you’re looking for a good romantic comedy, you need to pick up this book.

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”.

The Shape of Trust (Stand By Me, Book 5) by Brinda Berry – Review by Jessica Leombruno

The Shape of Trust (Stand By Me, #5)The Shape of Trust by Brinda Berry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Shape of Trust is the fifth book in the Stand By Me series by Brinda Berry. This single dad, age gap slow burn romance will keep you on the edge of your seat till the very end. Josie and Webb have some amazing chemistry and with the slow burn, the anticipation of them getting together was so worth the wait. Webb’s five-year-old daughter stole the pages whenever she was on them, I think I was laughing every time she opened her mouth, you never knew what she was going to say next. I am not going to give much away about this book; I am going to tell you that you need to read it and this series. This is only my second book of the series that I have read and both were really good.

Tapped (The Night Moves, Book 3) by Tarrah Anders – Review by Jessica Leombruno

TappedTapped by Tarrah Anders
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tapped is the last book in The Night Moves series by Tarrah Anders, but I’m begging please write more. Janae and Kai’s story is a sweet second chance romance. They haven’t seen each other in 10 years and now they find themselves working at the same club. Can Janae and Kai just be friends or will they give love a second chance?

Besides having everything we love about second chance romances, we also get some of Tarrah’s “You Dirty Girl!” writing, while is so yummy. I loved how Tarrah had to add her favorite item of men’s clothing somewhere in this book, LOL!

This book can be read as a standalone, but I recommend that you read the whole series they are enjoyable dirty sexy books that will make you swoon and HELLO! there are about Male Strippers, I’m sorry Exotic Dancers!

The Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe – Review by Jessica Leombruno

The Memory of UsThe Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If I could describe this book in one word it would be – FATE. The Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe had the right amount of a push-pull relationship with a side of an emotional roller coaster to keep you turning the pages. Elena and Weston are meant to be together no matter the length of time apart or distance between them. As this was my first book by this author and I’m a sucker for a good second chance romance: I really enjoyed Elena and Weston’s story. This book needs to be on everyone’s TBR for the year.
