My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Salty Sebastian (Smirk Series Book 3) By Jen Luerssen. Absolutely loved this book. It’s just what I was looking for. While I think you can read this book as a stand-alone I recommend them all for sure. This author takes readers on a story ride that leaves you wishing is wasn’t over. I stayed up well into the night because I just couldn’t put Sebastian and Kit’s story down. The characters are complex and relatable and I think they may be one of my top favorites for main characters this year. It’s well written and paced nicely. I sometimes forgot I was reading a book, since it played out in my head so vividly. I’m excited to read more by this author. I’m giving this story a five star review and highly recommend it!

Salty Sebastian (Smirk Series book 3) by Jen Luerssen ​is a great contemporary romance and is a wonderful fun read. ​This romantic comedy, like the other books in this series, is one of the most funniest stories I have read. Jen has hit her stride when she wrote these books. Being told in the male point of view is wonderful and her dialogue and humour is top notch and spot on. I found myself laughing out loud and so engrossed in the lives of these wacky characters. It is sexy and steamy and there were some tender moments that made you go ‘ah’ and others that made you go ‘what’. The story feels so realistic as we follow these crazy friends, who are family, through their lives, with all their quirks and sexy smexy innuendos, teasing and mateship, love and flaws, hope and wonder.

I am happy to have more of these characters and this series, as I said before, one book is not enough. Keep em coming Jen.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Salty Sebastian was a great 5 star read. And book three in the Smirk Series.

While in Vegas for a wine convention Kit meets Sebastian. He sort of saves her from a humiliating hook up that gave me a LOL moment. After a few hours of flirting they end up having a hot and steamy evening.

Fate steps in and two years later Kit ends up getting hired by Sebastian’s partner to work an internship at their winery. She has a dream to run her own winery one day. Sebastian has always kept boundaries with the interns, will he be able to with Kit? Can these two have a future?

I’m on track now and I”m not letting a one-night stand in Vegas derail me. Even the hottest night of my life -Kit

I really loved Kit she had me lol so many times. I loved the nickname she came up with for Sebastian as well, it fit perfectly. Sebastian was an alpha male with a dominant side to him. Kit really pushed his buttons at times. The connection these two had was great. If you’re looking for a great romance with some lol moments this is the book for you. Jen does a great pulling you in with her writing. I look forward to reading more from her.

A stand-alone romantic comedy set against the background of Scottish small towns and locks that will make you laugh, cry, and definitely melt your heart.

Livie Dunn, bookworm and aspiring bookstore owner, has been in love with her best friend ever since he dropped a bug down her shirt in primary school. She never stopped hoping that one day he’d realize they were made for each other.

Until Mia got in the way.

Kyle Huang has been taught to always do the right thing. But when that involves ostracizing his best friend by marrying her childhood nemesis, Mia, life as he knows it derails and crashes.
Suddenly, their happy ever after seems like a broken dream, especially when Livie moves across two continents to open a bookstore in Scotland.

To salvage a love that seems all but lost, Kyle must come to terms with his own bad choices and hope that Livie is willing to forgive and help him face his demons—a task that is anything but simple. Will he be able to reignite her love or will he lose it all?


Natalina wrote her first romance in collaboration with her best friend at the age of thirteen. Since then she has published nine romances that defy the boundaries of her genre. She enjoys writing all kinds of rebels and outcasts into her stories and she always roots for the underdog.

After earning a degree in tourism and foreign languages, she worked as a tourist guide in her native Portugal for a short time before moving to the United States. She lived in three continents and a few islands, and her knack for languages and linguistics led her to a master’s degree in education. She lives in Virginia where she teaches English as a Second Language to elementary school children.

Natalina doesn’t believe you can have too many books or too much coffee. Art and dance make her happy and she is pretty sure she could survive on lobster and bananas alone. When she is not writing or stressing over lesson plans, she shares her life with her husband and two adult sons.

Dreams aren’t supposed to have an expiration date…

Preston Ellington spends long summer days on Hilton Head at his family’s hotel bar, slinging Dirty Rooster shots to half-naked women who eagerly jump into his bed for the promise of an equally dirty night. That’s the only promise he’ll make, since anything else will interfere with his plans. Commitment? The word leaves a worse taste in his mouth than a Dirty Rooster.

He has a dream and a trust fund. The last thing he needs is some gold-digger trying to sink her claws into his future.

Summer Fallon fled her hometown in New Jersey as soon as she had her college diploma in hand. She arrives in Hilton Head with one goal – to make as much money as possible without distractions in the form of sleazy bartenders who take home a different girl every night. Her job as a hotel maid sure isn’t glamorous, considering the marathon sex fests she needs to clean up afterward in the penthouse, but it’s going to jumpstart her new life.

Because she also has a dream…

But sometimes, bad judgement can destroy those dreams.

And once they are shattered, can they ever really be made whole again?
