Liar by Stephanie St. Klaire

5 out of 5 stakes!

Damn this book is hilarious. And it really should be a Rom-com movie or mini t.v. series. It had me laughing at so many parts. Cori is trying to become vp at her job. And fakes a lot of what she doesn’t have. Her friend James is a uber driver and has a nice expensive car. So that is one lie, then she shortens her name and all kinds of other stuff. But what she doesn’t know is the one fake/lie is going to get her good. When she grabs Nick off the street to prerend she is her soon to be husband it becomes so funny.
Dominic is so into pretending with Cori you root for him. And Cori hasn’t a clue about a lot of things. It becomes a who is playing who but in a funny way. Please make this into a series. These two are freaking hilarious trying to make another couple so jealous. Omg I love this book. I totally can picture Emilia Clarke playing Cori.

BOOK BLURB:

Fake it until you make it. That was the mantra Cori Dash chanted as she chased a big city dream. The more you tell people you’re on top of the world, the more they believe it – just like they believed the embellished image she sold them with her knock off designer facade. It wasn’t lying if the truth stood somewhere in the middle – and she didn’t get caught.

Dominic Blackthorne owned half of that big city…and a reputation. Rather than dispel rumors or show the world the real Nick, he let his own fake image run free. Until Cori Dash – the only person who told him exactly how it was, even if it stung.

When Cori is faced with her ex-fiance, now engaged to her ex-best friend, it’s game on. In her boldest move yet, she concocts her biggest lie to date by introducing the first handsome stranger that walks by as her new fiancé. Happy to play the part, Nick is already planning the fake wedding of her dreams.

You know what they say about lying – the truth always comes out – and it hurts. Especially when Cori finds out she isn’t the biggest Liar in this game, and she’s been out played.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:
Stephanie St. Klaire is a Pacific Northwest native currently living in Portland, Oregon with her husband, five children, and two ferocious lap dogs that are used to the finer things in life like sleeping all day. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found with a plate full of taco’s, a side of bean dip, and probably some gummy bears while being a little bit hippy and a lot bit busy mom’ing and wife’ing.

When she’s not tossing around gritty crime show inspired serial killers and diabolical bad guys, she likes to make people pee their pants a little with a good romcom. Sometimes, her worlds collide, and she writes really funny stuff right before she kills people off on the pages! She loves murder and mayhem as much as a good laugh and HEA! That’s why she’s a die-hard Hallmark junky but loves her gritty crime shows – balance!

Stephanie has always been a story teller, with the gift of “gab”, and a life-long goal to be a writer. Unfortunate circumstances with her health, finally afforded her the time to do so. Irony at its best, she began writing her first novel at an adverse time, to escape her circumstance and explore the stories in her imagination for relief. She is happy to share those stories with her readers, and bring a little fun, entertainment, and of course smexy characters to the pages.

The wonder of you by Harper Kincaid. Buy now! My thoughts below:

5 out 5 stakes!

This book is very cute. It made me laugh. I can’t wait to read more about these wonderful characters.
Alice is a country girl who moves to NY city. Alice learns that everything is a faster pace but yet the same in some ways. Alice meets a rough city guy by accident. But he opens her heart and eyes to a whole new wonder land.

Dare is a handsome rough around the edges kind of guy. When he meets Alice his world changes for the better. Dare finds himself through Alice, he realizes he can open his heart and really love again. With Dare being famous in the art world can he still be a regular person with a private life?
I recommend this quick cute book for anyone who wants to have a laugh.

BOOK INFORMATION:
THE WONDER OF YOU by Harper Kincaid is a modern, Alice in Wonderland re-telling you won’t want to miss!

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

 

What if Alice didn’t fall down the rabbit hole, but instead, traveled through
Lincoln Tunnel into another kind of Wonderland:
New York City.

The best day of twenty-five year old Alice Leighton’s life was the day she got to put her nothing special, lil Southern town in her rear-view mirror. Good-bye to phony ‘bless your hearts’ and ‘I’ll pray for you’ crap, all while talking trash behind her back. She’s New York City’s latest addition and she’s going to work her ass off proving she earned her spot in the country’s top grad program.
Never again will she let some jerk derail her future and break her heart. Oh, and no more players. She’s D.O.N.E with the ‘cool guys’.
Getting caught up in Dare Grangeworth, the art world’s resident bad boy, was not part of her Alice 2.0 plan, even if he is just her type, with his beard, tats sleeves and intense green eyes. When he’s not dodging the press or his cultish fan base, Dare’s making art that makes a statement. Women seem to lose their heads around him – all the more reason why he finds Alice’s candor refreshing. He’s used to women giving in – not giving attitude.
He has to get to know this girl, even if it means allowing himself to be the subject of her research. Before too long, he becomes more than a simple outlier she can explain away. And for him everything starts to feel larger than life and upside down, like a heady rush, all while desperately trying not to lose his heart.
Become lost and found in this re-imagined story of Alice and her cast of characters, in a world where Wonderland meets Sex-and-the-City.

My review for this book is live: One Baby Daddy ( Dating by numbers # 3) By Meghan Quinn

  • 5 out of 5 stakes!!!
  • First off I don’t think Meghan can put out a book that isn’t 5 stakes from me. I love this book, in fact at parts I was getting so annoyed with a character I had to go and peek and see how it would end. I know, I know we shouldnt do that. But damn this book is that good I had to know.

This book is told from two p.o.v.’s and that is nice when you can get to read two sides to a story. I just adore Hayden, I think I found a new book boyfriend. We need more books with him. ( Hint, Hint ) Hayden is an extremely great hockey player. But from one incident on the ice and a not so nice answer in an interview brings Hayden back home with his best friend.
Never would he have thought coming home to clear his head would he meet the woman of his dreams. Adalyn is a character whom I liked throughout the book. She doesn’t take crap from anyone, but also doesn’t really let anyone in. But when she meets Hayden she feels something for him besides attraction. Adalyn just doesn’t realize it yet that he is the man who will break down her walls.
I will say it during the last half of the book Adalyn really and I mean really annoyed me. I was thinking come on you are smarter and better then this. You honestly didn’t realize….. I don’t want to give away any spoilers. Except we do get to see Hayden’s side of the date when he meets Noely.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

ONE BABY DADDY
By Meghan Quinn

AMAZON: http://hyperurl.co/p23nzh

What are you doing now that your team is out of the running for the Stanley Cup?”

Forget.

I need to forget. I need an escape.

Only one person isn’t falling for my reputation as the NHL’s Golden Boy; she captured my attention the minute she called me out for snooping through my best friend’s house. She didn’t want to hear my reason–she only wanted to playfully give me a hard time.

Adalyn is bold, sassy–and the perfect escape.

She’s everywhere. In town and in my dreams, and suddenly I need to spend every waking moment with her.

And I do, making this summer the best off-season I’ve ever had.

But in the midst of getting lost in Adalyn, what I don’t expect is to get her pregnant.

And what I definitely don’t expect is having to fight for her affection.

Thoughts on Elemental Lies ( book 2 ) by Elle Middaugh

5 out of 5 Stakes!!

So yes this was just wow. The quick paced adventure. And it was a scary one for Val, friends and family. In this book it continues on from the aftermath of book 1. Where you didn’t know if friends, family, neighbors or foes were alive or dead. For me I feel that Val learned so much but not enough. Now Val had to eventually go home from her hideaway. But what they find are everyone is on a side and not a good or bad side. and humans are more afraid now then ever of different humans. Val finds Sienna and she fills her on on everything including a curfew in place for those whom are different. Holden is still the same and okay. But when Val see’s Cade again eveything just feels right to her. We spend a better part of the book trying to learn secrets and trying to find Nicholai. But Val and her friends find are so much more. Lies that have been going on so long. And not everyone is a friend to the cause. However it leads me to that ending… What the heck!! Waiting and waiting for book 3. Love these books so very much.

Reveals today: All about us and All about hope by Ashley Erin and a giveaway, buying links below: Also my thoughts on this wonderful book.

5 out of 5 Stakes!!!

Oh my gosh, this book is terrific. I read this book so quickly. Some parts were funny, some sad and some made me say really Dane. ha ha.
Each of the characters added something special to the book. Even though it is told from the two main characters Emma and Dane, the author had a way of making me feel like Lia, Ryan and Alex were main characters as well.
Emma moves back home to what was her childhood home after her Grandfather passes and leaves her the family house. But with her trying to cope with the guilt of losing her parents and her Grandfather a month later proves to be tough. Emma isn’t expecting to have a crush on Dane her childhood best friend. When she see’s him, she realizes he is very much grown up. Dane see’s Emma and realizes yes he is still in love with her since he was 8. But he has to break down her walls to show that he will always be there for her. This book is about getting those chances again and forgiving and letting go of guilt and taking that leap of faith or chance on someone.

All About Us:

It took twenty-four hours for Emma’s world to shatter, leaving her broken. Returning to her childhood home, Emma wonders if it could be exactly what she needs to heal.

Dane finally has a chance at the girl he lost all those years ago. When Emma blows back into his world, he knows he won’t let her go again.

They’re drawn together, their chemistry undeniable. Emma just needs to decide whether she’s willing to risk her heart when it’s just begun to heal.

All About Hope:

Friends with benefits.

Toe curling, ecstasy inducing, and completely secret.

Alex and Lia succumb to their scorching attraction, striking a deal of no-strings sex. Neither of them want a commitment, both of them are unable to stop the sparks from flying when they’re together.

Feelings develop, old fears surface, and sex is no longer enough. Will a glimmering sense of hope allow them to let go of the past, or will their secret blow up, leaving them shattered?

Exclusive Excerpt:

Ollie runs to the end of the arena, waiting for my cue. Kicking my heels out, I say, “Whoa.” He slides to a stop, the tracks he’s left behind are straight and true.

After leaving Emma’s house an hour ago, I desperately needed to get my mind off weddings, and relationships, and stupid men who fuck me and then avoid me after giving me a taste of something I forgot I desperately needed.

So, I saddled Ollie and have been going through some reining patterns. Show season is upon us, the first in just over a month, and I want to be sure we’re ready.

Lifting my right rein, I roll my spur into his left flank. He spins on the spot, the room around us blurring with the speed of the spin. Stopping him, I let him rest a moment before lifting my left rein and this time rolling my spur into his right flank. He spins in the opposite direction, the tightness of the circle envied by many.

Ollie is eight years old and has been my reining horse since we entered the Futurity, the chance for first time reining horses to show what they have and win big, when he was three years old. In the five years I’ve had him, the bond we’ve formed is envied both in and out of the arena. He will be with me until the day he dies, despite offers of tens of thousands of dollars to buy him.

Patting Ollie on his neck, I frown when I see Alex through the large windows at the end of the arena. Everything I’ve been trying to clear my head of comes back with a vengeance. It really bothers me that Alex initiated what happened that night, and then proceeded to avoid me like I’m a carrier of the plague.

I didn’t ask him to pin me against the counter and kiss me with an explosive passion that still has my body thrumming six months later. Nor did I ask him to wrap my legs around his waist and fuck me until I had the most earth shattering orgasm I’ve ever experienced.

Growling, I nudge Ollie into a canter, circling the arena working on lead changes until we are both covered in a sheen of sweat. I love the speed of this sport, and the connection between horse and rider. It’s a testament to how frustrated I am that I don’t feel better after a solid hour of working.

Slowing Ollie to a trot, I begin our cooldown. When his breathing has slowed, I dismount and walk him around the arena a couple times to ensure he’s cooled down enough. Leading him to the tie stall, I quickly untack him and rub him down until his coat shines before settling him into his stall with some feed and his supplements. The entire time I perform my tasks, I’m remembering that night with such acuity that by the time I’m done putting his tack away, my body is quivering in need.

Scowling, I clench my thighs trying to alleviate the ache, getting more and more pissed off at Alex the entire time. He did this to me. I was fine. I met my own needs and didn’t need anything from anyone. Now, I can’t come unless it’s to images in my head of that night with Alex. He’s ruined my ability to need nothing from anyone.

Flipping the lights, I burst through the door cursing under my breath and crash into a hard, hot body. Glancing up, I step back into the now closed door of the barn. “Alex.”

Alex’s hazel eyes take in my disheveled appearance. My hair is wild from running patterns with Ollie, my skin covered in a light layer of sweat and dust. When his eyes fall on the slight sliver of skin showing between my jeans and tank top, his eyes shoot back to mine where they bore into my soul. He steps back a foot, his eyes moving between mine and the barn door as he tries to think of something to say. “I didn’t know you were in the barn.”

“I was working Ollie. We have a show in May.” Tucking my hands in my back pockets, I lean back, propping one foot against the wall, trying to ignore the way my body has lit up from the inside. I’ve spent the last ninety minutes replaying that one night, and now the object of my desire is standing here looking at me with false indifference. Despite his best efforts, I know he’s still attracted to me, because if he wasn’t, he wouldn’t be avoiding me all of the damn time.

When he starts to turn without another word, I shove off the wall, closing the distance between us.

Enough is enough.

I fist my hand in his shirt when he moves to walk away again, and step into him, tilting my head up so he can’t avoid looking at me. “You’ve been avoiding me.”

“No . . .” He tries to look away, but I raise my other hand and hold it against the back of his head.

“Don’t lie to me, Alex. We used to spend time together, and now you don’t remain in a room with me more than the necessary amount of time to be considered polite. Don’t even get me started on the fact you haven’t been alone with me since the engagement party.

“What I don’t get is that you’re the one who initiated that night. You’re the one who made the first move, not me. I haven’t been some clingy chick you picked up in a bar, so what gives?” Holding him in place, I glare up at him, locking his gaze in mine.

He sighs and runs a hand down his face before looking at my hand still grasping his shirt. “I’ve been a dick for no reason, haven’t I?”

“Well, I wasn’t going to use those exact words, but yeah.” Grinning, I drop my hand when he chuckles softly.

“In the heat of the moment, all I could think about was you and how much I wanted to feel you. Afterwards, all I could think about was everyone else and what they would do if they found out. I don’t want a relationship and the pressure would be there, I know how Emma thinks.” His smirk drops into a frown as I gape at him.

“That is the lamest thing I’ve ever heard. Your hot factor just dropped by two points.” Crossing my arms over my chest, I narrow my eyes. His Adam’s apple bobs as he swallows, but there is a slight smirk he’s fighting at my comment. Cocking my hip out, I scowl. “Let’s go through these one at a time. First off, no one knows what happened and there is no reason for them to know. Second, you’re assuming I want a relationship; that’s something I haven’t had the desire for in a long time. Been there, done that, and I have the emotional scarring as a souvenir.”

Alex has made me wonder, hope even, but for the most part I’m still leery of entering a relationship, especially with someone as skittish as Alex, so I don’t feel like I’m lying.

“My hot factor?” Alex grins at me, cocking his head to the side in a way that is too cute. He’s trying to distract me, but it won’t work.

“Seriously? That’s what you took from that?” Shaking my head, I step toward him and place my hand on his chest, pressing my body into his. For a moment, all I can think about is the hard muscle beneath my hand and remembering the way it looked when he pounded into me.

Grinding my teeth, I focus back on the man before me. “All I want is someone I trust to have hot sex with. Get your head out of your ass and think about it. If that’s not what you want, fine, but we’re friends Alex, and it hurts my feelings that it’s so easy for you to forget that.”

Lifting onto my toes, I press a chaste kiss to his lips, drawing away before he can react. Brushing past him, I saunter to my house.

I’m not a pushover, and I’m not going to let him get away with this shitty behavior any more.
