Review: Black Lies by Alessandra Torre

Black Lies
by Alessandra Torre

 

Brant:
Became a tech billionaire by his twentieth birthday. Has been in a relationship with me for 3 years. Has proposed 4 times. Been rejected 4 times.

Lee:
Cuts grass when he’s not banging housewives. Good with his hands, his mouth, and his body. Has been pursued relentlessly by me for almost 2 years, whether he knows it or not.

Go ahead. Judge me. You have no idea what my love entails.

If you think you’ve heard this story before, trust me – you haven’t.

Brant Sharp made millions at the age of twenty out of his basement tinkling with his computer. A genius introvert who only entertained female guests that his aunt Jillian approved of, he lived a rather extraordinary life in a plain surrounding. Decent, reasonable, focus, quiet. Until her met the extraordinary Layana Fairmont.

But there’s another guy in Layana’s life – Lee. Seductive, arrogant, out of control, jealous. Brant’s extreme counterpart, but Layana still fell for him despite his flaws.

Two different men, one confused heart, one deceptive aunt. They all lived in lies, and through those lies, will they all survive?

This has been literally mind-blowing!

Victory is mine. I grinned, giving myself a virtual high five, and put my Mercedes into drive. Pulling onto the screet, I headed south. Maybe after my massage, I’d swing by my boyfriend’s office. Drop off a sandwich for him. Celebrate my victory with the other man in my life.

Go ahead. Judge me. You have no idea what my love entails.

Normally, I don’t read books with cheating spouses/lovers. I couldn’t tolerate the audacity of the person committing infidelity and dishonesty. When I saw this book, I didn’t exactly read the synopsis nor any reviews about it, I just downloaded it on a whim because it was by Alessandra Torre. (Yes, I’m a fan!) So I went blind going through the book.

Somehow after reading the prologue, I had second thoughts reading the book. But I told myself, I’d be a fool if I let a measly paragraph decide my reading. Plus, this is a Torre book, and I’ve never been disappointed by her before. So armed with a coffee and donut on my side table, I devoured every page of Black Lies.

“He was everything I didn’t expect. Quietly confident, Unassuming, Gorgeous.”

And boy was this an unassuming gorgeous book! I couldn’t stop reading right after the first chapter. At the back of my mind, I already knew that Layana was going to be a cheater, but something told me to give her the benefit of the doubt. I wanted to know why would she resort to that tactic and how could she sleep at night knowing this predicament.

This has been mentally exhausting, and if you know me, I was already formulating a lot of hypothesis on my mind, digging into Brant’s, Lee’s and Lana’s skulls. And I was rewarded when I got the lies right. Yep, I already had an idea about the secrets surrounding the characters, but I wasn’t prepared with the consequences it had entailed.

Did I like the book? Yes! Did I enjoy the clusterfuck of events? Yes! Did I love Brant or Lee? Yes and yes.. Who would I choose then? I have no idea, but hear me out. I wouldn’t mind getting tangled with both of them too. Lucky Layana indeed!

Review: My Creative Billionaire 1 by Ali Parker

My Creative Billionaire 1
by Ali Parker

Being rich means living up to the expectations of others… even when you don’t want to.

Matt’s always known what it was like to live on the high end of society, and where his brother and father love it… he hates it. A creative at heart, he’s forced into the world of Accounting to help stand beside the family name and build an empire from the ground up. His true passion is art, life and love.

Erica is the Chief Advertising Officer for Bryant Accounting Firm and has had her eye on the CEO’s son, Matthew for quite some time. He’s a bit docile in public, and often plays the fool, but something tells her that a very different man exists just beneath the surface. She’s willing to wager her career by taking Matt beneath her wing, and hopefully to her bed.

Matthew Bryant is a billionaire who doesn’t need a job, but he’s got that creative streak on him that can’t be ignored. Working with the beautiful Erica should be easy, but sketching her and spending a weekend with her made it all the more complicated for him, especially with his burgeoning feelings. But like any other coward in love, he is afraid to pursue her.

Ali Parker did it again, and the force is definitely with her. I was surprised at Matt Bryant, all along I thought he was the dominant alpha male like his brother Damon whom I loved in another book. But Matt is a dear. I adore his silliness and creativity and flaws. He’s imperfect but he’s not annoying. I love him for who at what he is. I just wish Erica could see beneath his stature and talk to him, instead of just leaving a note then moping around, second guessing his intentions.

Overall, this was another exciting book in a series and I can’t wait to read Matt’s next move.

Release Blitz: Billionaire Unveiled by J.S. Scott

What happens when a man you’ve always hated
turns out to be the one who saves you, risking his own life to rescue
you from certain death?

Lines are blurred.

Everything you’ve always thought was true isn’t quite so clear anymore.

Dani

I’ve always hated Marcus Colter. I have since high school. We antagonize
each other every time we meet, and I thought our dislike was mutual,
until he ends up saving my life on a suicide mission to rescue me from
my captors, men who would have killed me if not for Marcus. Everything
that happens after that successful, crazy, and dangerous mission
confuses me.

Turns out, not only is Marcus incredibly brave,
but he also has a gruff kindness that I never knew existed. His quiet
strength sees me through my pain and fear after he pulls me out of the
danger zone.

I’m not sure what to think of Marcus Colter anymore.

He’s still the bossy alpha male who drives me crazy, but I eventually
discover that there’s so much more to Marcus than what’s on the surface.

Apparently, I’ve never known the real Marcus Colter.

Maybe nobody does…

Review: Single Dad’s Fake Bride by Nikki Chase

Single Dad’s Fake Bride
A Virgin and Billionaire Romance
by Nikki Chase

My billionaire boss wants me to marry him.
But this is no office romance. This is just pretend.
Or at least it’s supposed to be… until feelings get involved.
Now I want him and his daughter to be my real family.
But I have a secret that could destroy everything.

Ethan Hunter is a self-made billionaire. He also happens to be devastatingly handsome. My knees go weak when he looks at me with those piercing blue eyes.

Now he’s in trouble. Because of his bad reputation, he could lose custody of his daughter.

And by some strange twist of fate, I’m the only person who can help him… by pretending to be his wife.

But here’s a secret: he doesn’t know who I really am.

Yes, I’m his sweet, innocent assistant during office hours, but I’m also an undercover journalist. I only started working for Ethan to dig up some dirt on him.

So I marry him. That makes me both a virgin and a married woman, which is weird. But hey, many journalists have done crazier things to get the inside scoop.

Then I move into Ethan’s swanky penthouse apartment and things start to unravel. Everything feels too real. I have a plan, but my heart won’t stick to it—and neither will my traitorous body.

I want this fake life to be my reality. But what will happen when Ethan finds out the truth about me?

Ethan Hunter isn’t on the hunt for a wife nor a mother for his child, Penny. But a grueling interview and an extremely worried daughter soon find him in a predicament and is forced to marry his PA, Megan Jones.

Megan is hesitant at first with the situation, but with a secret mission up in her sleeves, she agrees to being Ethan’s fake bride and puts her plan into action.

What she doesn’t expect is falling in love with her boss and his daughter. She needs to do her revenge, but it seems fate has other plans for her.

Single Dad’s Fake Bride is an entertaining read. Fast, furious and fiery and oozing with combustible heat. Megan fits Ethan’s life perfectly, and he’s definitely more than the man she thought he was. Penny, the daughter, was such a darling, a troublemaker maybe, but is absolutely a character to love. Once again, Nikki Chase has delivered a story that’s not only poignant but also entertaining, dreamy and delicious. A great bedtime story for hopeless romantic readers!

Review: Total Abandonment (Unbearable Passion 4) by Scarlett Avery

Book Title: Total Abandonment
Series Name: Unbearable Passion, Book 4
Author: Scarlett Avery
Genre: Billionaire Romance Series/Erotic Romance

 

After a saucy weekend, Bryce declares his love for Sofia in the most unexpected way.

Bryce would do anything for his Sofia and there’s no doubt he loves her with all of his heart. But when Sofia introduces Bryce to her sizzling hot younger sister Ciara, Sofia smells trouble.

Every boyfriend she introduces to Ciara always falls for her ravishingly beautiful sibling.

Will Bryce and Sofia’s love survive Ciara’s legendary charm? Will Sofia come in second place again and lose the man she loves?

The last chapter in the Unbearable Passion series and I’m thrilled how it ended. Sofia and all her insecurities are eating up her insides now that she has to introduce her stunning sister, Ciara to her now lover extraordinaire, Bryce Van Linden. Ciara is great with light fixtures and she is hired by Bryce’s company to install new lighting in his New York office. Sofia doesn’t want them to meet, because Ciara is so gorgeous, that everyone she had liked before always chose her sister instead.

Trust and loyalty are put into test in Sofia & Bryce’s relationship, and I can’t really blame Sofia for all the doubts that clouded her mind. I love how Scarlett Avery continuously blow my mind with all these hot and steamy scenes and beautifully narrated story. The characters have their unique personalities and flaws, but those doesn’t deter me from genuinely hoping for their happily ever after. Their journey may have been quite a rocky one with pitfalls but seeing their smiles towards the end was worth it.

Did I mention the super erotic hot scenes that had the reader wide-eyed right at the start of the book? Better read this series so you’ll know what I am talking about. Ciao!

Review: EXPOSED – Unbearable Passion 3 by Scarlett Avery

Book Title: Exposed
Series Name: Unbearable Passion, Book 3
Author: Scarlett Avery
Genre: Billionaire Romance Series/Erotic Romance

When a man truly loves a woman he’ll do anything in his power to win her back.

The romantic adventure between Bryce and Sofia intensifies and it becomes clear it’s much more than a business arrangement in this sensual, sexy and steamy love story.

Tragedy strikes and Bryce is stuck in Silicon Valley desperately trying to dig his company out of a PR nightmare.

Stranded alone in Manhattan, Sofia is forced to accept work with another client who whisks her away on a two-week business trip to South America.

Has Bryce lost his Sofia forever?

He exhales sweet hot breaths into my mouth as he kisses my lips hard. It’s as if he’s ready for a second round of a steamy romping session before he catches his flight. I don’t want him to leave, but I know that I cannot ask him to stay longer or for him to take me with him.

He turns me around so I can face him, gently brushes the hair off my face, as he softly kisses the tip of my nose.

* * *

Bryce and Sofia had become physically distant for the meantime in this third book. Van Linden had no choice but to go and oversee his company’s problem on another state. And then a really unfortunate tragedy befell his friend, so he had to be away for a while. What with all the controversy surrounding his friend’s personality, he hardly had time to be with Sofia. Gosh, he missed her so much!

 

But the lady in waiting had to eat and earn and pay bills! So Sofia had no choice but to accept another escort job, much to Bryce’s consternation. That, and the fact that they’re both unreachable due to communications failure, had almost put Bryce to the brink. Now he’s wondering whether he’d still see his ladylove and if so, would Sofia still have the hots for him?

Oh.. My G.. I thought this book could not get anymore steamier than ever. Everytime Bryce and Sofia are alone together, I have expected a lot of sparks and explosions and groundbreaking scenarios. Scarlett Avery did not disappoint. Even though their alone time together was lesser compared to what they’ve done on the other books (really sexy erotic time together, I must say), the author made sure that the main characters couldn’t and wouldn’t take their hands and limbs off each other. (insert evil grin here!)

And also, now that Bryce knew Sofia’s real name and identity, I had this feeling that it won’t be long before her sister would finally learn about Sofia’s real job. Ohhh! I’m so excited for this! Can’t wait to get my hands on the last book in the series!

Review: French Kiss (Unbearable Passion 2) by Scarlett Avery

Book Title: French Kiss
Series Name: Unbearable Passion, Book 2
Author: Scarlett Avery
Genre: Billionaire Romance Series/Erotic Romance

They don’t call Paris the most romantic city in the world for nothing.

Sofia (aka Amanda) is back is this sensual, sexy and steamy alpha billionaire romance and she’s playing the role of exclusive escort to her first client, the smoking hot billionaire Mr. Van Der Linden.

This time her services to the eligible bachelor take her all the way to Paris.

But it’s never really all about business; it’s all about Amanda.

Can she really keep it together or will she unravel little by little?

Sofia Herrera’s naughty arrangement becomes a little more complicated—especially when Bryce Van Der Linden does his best to fully dominate her.

She can’t deny the obvious—her body, mind and soul yearns for the dashing billionaire.

I can’t seem to stay away from Bryce Van Der Linden.. and I have a perfect reason why.

Billionaire Van Linden is an enigma. A force to reckon with. A man with balls of fire. A man with the most tantalizing eyes and hot kiss – well, that’s according to Sofia. Being in the city of love, Paris, truly escalated their relationship, inside and outside the bedroom, specifically. I wasn’t there to taste his lips, but I am 100% sure that this bad boy billionaire alpha could very well make my head turn and my lips purr.

OKay, sorry, I’m getting a little creepy here. Forgive me. Author Scarlett Avery has that magic touch when it comes to her writing. She’s an Amazon Bestseller, so that’s really saying something! Her characters are so adorably naughty and nice, I bet Santa Claus would have a hard time getting her a present.

Anyway, I love how fast-paced the story went, how delicious the scenes had become, how steamy the pages turned out until the end. But wait, there is no end yet in this book. Because there’s still book 3 where we’ll get a glimpse of the lovers’ other sides while they’re separated from one another. Gotta read the next book, ASAP!
