Review: Beauty and the Billionaire by Lauren Landish

January 29, 2019

Beauty and the Billionaire by Lauren Landish
Ruthless Bastard. White Knight.
But I just call him “boss.”

Thomas Goldstone.
A man of billion dollar deals in custom-tailored suits, he demands more than your best.

He’s scary. Driven. Haunted by inner demons that have taken him to the brink.
But beneath the arrogant, controlling fa├žade lies a heart of gold.
It makes me want to solve him one growly, messy piece at a time.
To be the only one who sees the truth of the man.

But I’m . . . me.
A pink-haired, anime-loving, data-crunching geek with an office in the basement of Goldstone HQ.
My chances with the big boss? Statistically insignificant.

His burning gaze and clenched jaw say otherwise though. Gives me hope and ignites a flame so hot my glasses fog up.
I shouldn’t mix business with pleasure.
Shouldn’t tempt the beast upstairs.
Shouldn't keep wondering . . .

Do fairy tales really come true?

ARC Review: BEDDING THE BILLIONAIRE by London Hale

November 16, 2017

Bedding the Billionaire by London Hale
She thinks they’re a mistake.

I've spent my whole life working toward my goals, being the best I can be at my job. Arrogant, persistent, pain in the skirt billionaire Colin Huntley isn't going to change that, even if he is the hottest man I've ever had the pleasure of working with. And pleasure is definitely something the man can deliver, without question. Our single, mind blowing night together was a mistake, though. A one-night stand brought on by a lapse in judgment. One I won't make again, so long as I stay strong as he starts his chase. Because when Colin decides he wants something, he gets it. And he's decided he wants me.

He always gets what he wants.

Sloane McLaren may be the best VP I’ve ever had, but she taunts me every day in her tight little skirts and her librarian-fantasy glasses. Especially since that night. The one when I had her in my bed, in my shower, bent over my kitchen counter. I thought we were finally on the same page...until I woke up to cold sheets and an empty bed. She may assume it’s business as usual in the office, but I didn’t build my billion-dollar company on assumptions. I want her back in my bed, and I’m willing to play dirty to get her there.

ARC Review: MR. NORTH by Callie Hart

Mr. North by Callie Hart
Law student Beth Dreymon is out of money and struggling hard. If she wants to finish her degree, she’s going to have to earn some money and fast.

Reassured the offer is legit, Beth gets her game face on and prepares to geek out...

Only, when she steps foot into Raphael North’s luxurious penthouse, the rulebook goes flying out of the floor-to-ceiling windows. North is beautiful and damaged—a terrible temptation—and he has his sights set on winning Beth over. He’s just a job, though. A job Beth needs in order to make ends meet. If she plans on making her life in New York work, she needs to keep her eye on the prize. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, however, and it isn’t long before Beth finds herself entangled in Raphael’s world of dark desire.

Captor.
Curator.
Lover.
Enigma.

Beth should run from the devastatingly attractive blue-eyed devil, but Mr North has other ideas…and he’s about to make his next move.

Review: Park Avenue Prince by Louise Bay

Park Avenue Prince by Louise Bay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Standalone - The Royals Collection #2
Release - February 13, 2017
Dual POV - 1st person
Heat - 3.5 out of 5
Length - 318 pages

THE PRINCE OF PARK AVENUE FINALLY MEETS HIS MATCH IN A FEISTY MANHATTAN PRINCESS.

I’ve made every one of my billions of dollars myself—I’m calculating, astute and the best at what I do. It takes drive and dedication to build what I have. And it leaves no time for love or girlfriends or relationships.

But don’t get me wrong, I’m not a monk.

I understand the attention and focus it takes to seduce a beautiful woman. They’re the same skills I use to close business deals. But one night is where it begins and ends. I’m not the guy who sends flowers. I’m not the guy who calls the next day.

Or so I thought before an impatient, smart-talking, beyond beautiful heiress bursts into my world.

When Grace Astor rolls her eyes at me—I want to hold her against me and show her what she’s been missing.

When she makes a joke at my expense—I want to silence her sassy mouth with my tongue.

And when she leaves straight after we f*ck with barely a goodbye—it makes me want to pin her down and remind her of the three orgasms she just had.

She might be a princess but I’m going to show her who rules in this Park Avenue bedroom.

MY REVIEW

This was my favorite episode of the series. I think it's because this was the book that offered the most depth. Although I admired Emma's perseverance, she lost points because she seemed to lack understanding or patience with Caleb's illness. It was all about her and her needs and her timetable. Thankfully Caleb evened out the scale with his compassion and willingness to try. The ending was too abrupt for my liking but overall it was a fine conclusion to the series.

MY REVIEW

Episode Three started off right where #2 ended: with Caleb and Emma as committed as ever and excited for their future, with their growing new addition. It was sensual, lovey-dovey goodness. Then something unpredictable happens and the bubble bursts. Still well-written and fast-paced. And the entire time I was reading this I was hoping for Caleb's POV. No such luck, which irked me because Emma was becoming more annoying :(
