Review: The Banker by Piper Rayne

The Banker by Piper Rayne

Who knew my brother’s friend could be Mr. Right, and not just Mr. Right Now?

My brother refused to introduce me, so I blame him. If he’d just caved, and introduced me to Jasper, I wouldn’t be in this mess. I mean, really, what’s the big deal? I’m not interested in the guy’s looks.

Oh no, I want his cold hard cash. (Be honest, you were expecting that other four letter ‘c’ word weren’t you?)

Now, before you go getting all judgy, I’m not a gold digger. I have a legitimate business opportunity for Jasper to invest in. The problem is that my stick-up-his-ass brother is embarrassed that his twin sister invents kick ass sex toys. His problem, not mine.

So, I took matters into my own hands. Defeat isn’t a word in Lennon Hart’s dictionary.

His best friend's little sister is all grown up … and ready to play in a whole new way.

Smith Hamilton has it all—he's smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he's not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm's length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him.

Evie Reed knows she's blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family's lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She's crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way.

Except that when Evie's plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.

The last time I saw my best friend’s younger brother, he was a geek wearing braces. But when Cannon shows up to crash in my spare room, I get a swift reality check.

Now twenty-four, he’s broad shouldered and masculine, and so sinfully sexy, I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to enjoy. At six-foot-something with lean muscles hiding under his T-shirt, a deep sexy voice, and full lips that pull into a smirk when he studies me, he’s pure temptation.

Fresh out of a messy breakup, he doesn’t want any entanglements. But I can resist, right?

I’m holding strong until the third night of our new arrangement when we get drunk and he confesses his biggest secret of all: he’s cursed when it comes to sex. Apparently he’s a god in bed, and women instantly fall in love with him.

I’m calling bullshit. In fact, I’m going to prove him wrong, and if I rack up a few much-needed orgasms in the process, all the better.

There’s no way I’m going to fall in love with Cannon. But once we start... I realize betting against him may have been the biggest mistake of my life.

What happens when two shifters meet? They're ravenous for love.

Luke knows how to get what he wants. A lone wolf at heart, he has no problem filling his bed with willing partners. But love? It's not in the cards. But when he matches with his best friend's little sister on the dating app, Shifter, everything changes. Jasmine is a fiery lioness and totally off limits--but that makes her all the more alluring.

Jasmine has had a crush on Luke as long as she can remember. He's sexy, powerful, and alpha. But as his best friend's little sister, Jasmine knows she doesn't stand a chance.

When Luke swipes right on her Shifter profile, Jasmine is shocked. Could this be the start of something more?

But Power Shift is out for blood. They hate any interspecies dating, and will stop at nothing to keep the shifter lines pure. When they attack, can Jasmine and Luke protect each other? Can their newfound love survive?

Warning: this book contains crazy chemistry, lots of sex, and a little violence to keep things spicy. If those things don't appeal to you, this book is not for you!

Review: Hollywood Prince by Kim Karr

January 01, 2017

Hollywood Prince by Kim Karr
Release Date: January 2, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Trope: best friend's sibling
POV: Dual - 1st person
Steam: 4 out of 5
Series or Standalone: Standalone, but there is crossover from other books from this author (notably Bedwrecker and No Pants Required)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I finished reading Bedwrecker, I was excited to see that Keen's brother, Brooklyn, would be getting his own story. I was already charmed by his character and couldn't wait to see what his HEA would look like. Color me delighted when I found out that his love interest was none other than Amelia, Cam's little sister (Cam is from No Pants Required).

Amelia has always dreamed of her very own prince charming. She soon finds herself with quite the dilemma because she's got two of them clamoring for her attention. One seems to have all of the makings of Mr. Right, while the other, the one she is intensely attracted to, a player, a bad boy, seems like Mr. Oh So Wrong. How does one choose? She'll eventually learn to let her heart decide.

I obviously enjoyed this story. Kim Karr has a knack for creating well-developed characters that are not only multi-faceted but extremely easy to like. I haven't met a character of hers yet that I didn't love. However, as much as I enjoyed Amelia (she was a riot), there was something about Brooklyn that really endeared him to me. He was a little lost, not as confidant as he portrayed, and at his core, he was an honest to goodness awesome guy.

I recommend this book to anyone looking for a real, fun and steamy read!
