Evan (Billionaire Blind Dates #2)Evan by Toni Denise
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Let me start out by saying that this is the second installment of this amazing series, and I highly suggest you take the time to read Jake!
This book focuses on Evan, who we meet in the first book of the series. Evan is a silent backer of a dating business called “Blind Date”, which is owned by Kayla, a wonderful woman we also met in the first installment. Kayla and Evan have a good friendship, but that seems to be all, at least on the surface. Evan’s friends talk him into trying out the Blind Date, just as he had talked his friend Jake into doing. The rules stayed the same, four women would be chosen, one by each of Evan’s friends, and he would go on a blind date with all of them. Evan has a terrible experience with the first two dates, but the third seems so right to him, that he feels almost comfortable, almost familiar.
This is an amazing short and beautiful read, and I highly recommend that you take the time to read the first installment and keep your eyes open for the third book! I’ll be impatiently awaiting its release! <3

Sharing His Nanny: A Curvy Girl Reverse Harem RomanceSharing His Nanny: A Curvy Girl Reverse Harem Romance by Tori Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I definitely related to Stella, our main girl. Growing up as anything larger than a size 8, and the fashion choices have always been abysmal at best. I love that that is the reason that Stella wanted to start her own fashion line, and created a need in her to create clothing that looks stunning on the curvy body. But back to the storyline!
Stella is working her butt off to keep creating her fashion line, but comes into a crisis when she has a falling out with her only big investor (who just so happened to be her kind of boyfriend -once you read it, you’ll understand why I say “kind of”).
Now, our dear Stella is at a loss, and is in desperate need of a new investor.
So, she contacts her step-mother, and ends up at a beach house with 3 VERY handsome men, and a child she is to play nanny to, and in-turn, she’ll have the money for her clothing line.
So what happens when you put a beautiful and stunning woman with 3 very hot men in a beach house in Miami? You get SPICE. I don’t want to ruin the book for anyone by giving away too much, but this book is amazing! It has a great storyline and characters. I promise you it’s absolutely worth the read!!

My Pearl Heart by J.N. Sheats – Review by Michaela Massie

My Pearl HeartMy Pearl Heart by J.N. Sheats
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Woooow! The first page is fiery hot and definitely pulled me in! We start off with a spicy make out session with a stranger (a very hot and handsome stranger, but stranger none-the-less) on a counter-top in her best friend’s house.
It all started with a call from Cadence, Jasmine (our loveable and fiery main character’s) best friend and business partner, feigning an emergency in the early hours of the morning. So our girl grabs a bag and runs out the door in her pajamas to go to Cadence’s house to help fix this “emergency.” Unsurprisingly, it wasn’t a real emergency, and Jasmine lets it go. She currently has bigger fish to fry and needs to figure out what exactly is really going on and why there is a gorgeous man standing in the kitchen when she knows Cadence isn’t seeing anybody.
Jasmine and Cadence run an event planning business, and Cadence wants to use the business to plan her spur of the moment engagement with her fiancé-to-be, James Conner. The same man who gave Jasmine the best kiss she’s ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Also part of the prestigious Conner family, who was practically royalty in the area.
So what’s a girl to do when she’s so attracted to her best friend’s fiance, (and he’s even more attracted to her?)
Read this book and find out!!! I promise you it’s worth the read, and it won’t be the ending you expected!
