Review: Addicted to You by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Addicted to You
Series:
Addicted, #1
Authors: Kirsta and Becca Ritchie
Publication Date: June 13, 2013
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance, Erotic Fiction

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

She’s addicted to sex. He’s addicted to booze…the only way out is rock bottom.

No one would suspect shy Lily Calloway’s biggest secret. While everyone is dancing at college bars, Lily stays in the bathroom. To get laid. Her compulsion leads her to one-night stands, steamy hookups and events she shamefully regrets. The only person who knows her secret happens to have one of his own.

Loren Hale’s best friend is his bottle of bourbon. Lily comes at a close second. For three years, they’ve pretended to be in a real relationship, hiding their addictions from their families. They’ve mastered the art of concealing flasks and random guys that filter in and out of their apartment.

But as they sink beneath the weight of their addictions, they cling harder to their destructive relationship and wonder if a life together, for real, is better than a lie. Strangers and family begin to infiltrate their guarded lives, and with new challenges, they realize they may not just be addicted to alcohol and sex.

Their real vice may be each other.

New Adult Romance recommended for readers 18+ for mature content.


I’m not sure what I expected when I decided to read Addicted to You. I knew it was a series that had been highly recommended, but I didn’t have any idea how obsessed I was going to become with the characters and their stories.

Addicted to You is the story of wealthy best friends, Lily and Lo. Lo is an alcoholic. Lily is a sex addict. Their sham of a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship hides their addictions from their families and the world. The longer they pretend to be with each other, the more they begin to crave a reality where their relationship is real. But a real relationship might just create more problems than it solves.

This book was like watching a train wreck. It was so ugly and messed up, but I couldn’t take my eyes away from it. It stressed me out and put me on edge, but I couldn’t put it down. I loved Lily and Lo too damn much. They were extremely flawed, but so real and honest. Their addictions were heartbreaking. I worried about them constantly. I wanted to know they were going to make it through, that they would be alright. I wanted to see a future for them — together — where their addictions didn’t rule them.

I feel weird saying this, but I am totally addicted to the Addicted series. I can’t put it down. I don’t want to put it down. I’m emotionally connected to it now. I know I’m going to have the biggest book hangover when I’m done with the series, but I don’t care. I love Lo and Lily. I love their friends and family. I want to know — have to know — what’s going to happen to them all in the end.

Review: Out of Bounds by R.S. Grey

Out of Bounds
Series:
The Summer Games, #2
Author: R.S. Grey
Publication Date: August 1, 2016
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance, Sports Romance

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

Synopsis:

From the USA TODAY Bestselling author of Scoring Wilder, comes a sexy new STANDALONE novel.

I despise Erik Winter.

He’s arrogant and cruel—a man I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy—and by some twisted turn of fate, he’s my new Olympic gymnastics coach.

I’ve had to contend with gruff coaches in the past, but Erik is far worse. His stern demeanor complements a body built for intimidation, and his reprimands come from a mouth so cunning, I know it could strip me of my defenses—if I let it.

Though each of us would love to be rid of the other forever, we are bound to each other by need and necessity. I’m his rising star, his best shot at proving himself to his critics. And without a coach, I have zero chance of winning gold in Rio.

The easiest way forward would be to wave a white flag and make peace with the man I’ll be sharing close quarters with for the foreseeable future, but he is intent on war.

Fine. By. Me.

If he pushes me, I’ll push back harder. If he wants to test me, to play with my head, I’ll show him just how many boundaries I’m willing to cross. Because I know it’s not a choice between winning or warring—not if you can have them both. At the end of it all, I plan on leaving Rio with gold around my neck and his icy heart in the palm of my hand.


I’m really bummed that I didn’t love Out of Bounds as much as I loved the first book in this series, Settling the Score. While I still enjoyed the writing and the Olympic storyline, I had a problem with the love story in this one.

The romance in Out of Bounds was a slightly taboo one. It was a coach-athlete love story. This would bug me if it wasn’t for the fact that Brie was 20 and Erik was 27. They were both adults. It felt more like a workplace romance than a student-teacher relationship. What bothered me about Brie and Erik’s relationship was the way Erik took advantage of his coaching position. Erik put Brie in situations that were completely inappropriate for a coach to do. (If you’ve read the book, think yoga session.) I don’t care what Brie needed to work on. His methods were wrong. He took advantage of her trust. It bothered me.

The situations Erik put Brie in weren’t my only frustration with the book. I couldn’t figure out why Brie was attracted to Erik other than his looks. He was a complete jerk all of the time. I never felt a true connection between the two of them that wasn’t sexual. When they declared their love, I didn’t swoon. I was just kind of like, huh…I don’t get it.

That being said, I loved Brie. She had her insecurities, but they were overshadowed by her strengths. She stood up for herself and was a nice person. Her relationship with her mom was so sweet. Brie was also the glue that held her gymnastic team/friends together. Their hijinks were my favorite part of this book.

If Erik had he been a sweet guy instead of a complete jerk, I would probably have been in love with Out of Bounds. Luckily, I enjoyed Brie, her friends and their Olympics storyline enough to like it.

Review: Settling the Score by R.S. Grey

Settling the Score
Series:
The Summer Games, #1
Author: R.S. Grey
Publication Date: May 2, 2016
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance, Sports Romance

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

From the USA TODAY Bestselling author of Scoring Wilder, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

As an Olympic rookie, Andie Foster has spent far more time in her cleats than between the sheets. For 21 years, her Friday nights have consisted of blocking shots rather than taking them. But now that she’s landed in Rio, she’s ready to see for herself if the rumors about the Olympic Village are true:

• The athletes are all sex-crazed maniacs…
• The committee passes out condoms like candy…
• The games continue long after the medals have been handed out…

As Andie walks the line between rumor and reality, she’s forced into the path of Frederick Archibald, a decorated Olympic swimmer and owner of a sexy British accent–too bad he’s unavailable in a way that “it’s complicated” doesn’t even begin to explain.

In other words: off limits.

It doesn’t matter that he has abs that could bring peace to the Middle East and a smile that makes even the Queen blush; Andie fully intends on keeping her focus on the soccer field. But the Village is small. Suffocating. Everywhere Andie goes, Freddie happens to be there–shirtless, wet from the pool, and determined to show her a whole new meaning of the phrase “international affairs”.

Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.


If you already miss watching the Rio Olympics, have I got the book for you!

Settling the Score was an incredibly fun Olympic centered romance. It was everything I like in a sports romance. The writing was amazing, the characters fun, and it was really cool to feel like you were smack in the middle of all of the Olympic drama. Settling the Score brought a fun and sexy side to the Olympics that I hadn’t thought too much about before.

I loved Andie and Freddie. Andie was not only an accomplished athlete, but a confident woman. I loved her playful side. Freddie was a much deeper character than I expected. He had a lot to prove to Andie. I loved his backstory and how his family influenced his life. Together, they were just what you’d expect a sexy, athletic couple to be.

Andie and Freddie weren’t the only exciting characters in the story. There were a couple of athletes from Grey’s previous books that made appearances. I did feel like I was missing out on something great not knowing them before, but it didn’t bother me. It just made me more excited to go back, read their stories, and get to know them better.

Settling the Score is a story New Adult sports romance fans are sure to love. I would highly recommend it. It will get you right back in the Olympic spirit.

Review: Wrong Question, Right Answer by Elle Casey

Wrong Question, Right Answer
Series: 
The Bourbon Street Boys, #3
Author: Elle Casey
Publication Date: August 23, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense
Note: I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

Synopsis:

As a member of the Bourbon Street Boys private security firm, Antoinette “Toni” Delacourte is one strong woman, but despite her reputation for being tough as nails, she is haunted by her past mistakes. Now they’re catching up to her, and throwing her for a loop.

Ten years ago, Toni kissed Lucky, her brother’s best friend. Worried it would break apart the group she’d come to see as family, she walked away—straight into the arms of Charlie, and an abusive relationship.

For the past decade she’s tried to keep her feelings for Lucky platonic—he’s her friend, her colleague, and he’s got his own past to deal with. Free of Charlie but unable to shake his memory, Toni finds herself feeling vulnerable and unable to deny her attraction to Lucky any longer.

She’s always thought that kiss was her first mistake, but now she’s wondering whether the real mistake was running away.


Toni’s story is the one I’ve been most interested in reading since I began reading The Bourbon Street Boys series. Her dark history combined with her bad attitude and kick ass ways have made her an exciting character to read about. I was happy to finally get her story and even happier that it involved Lucky.

As teenagers, Toni and Lucky shared one kiss. Since then, they have been avoiding their feelings for each other. When a drunken night has them reenacting their first and only kiss, they find their attraction to each other has not disappeared over the years. It’s gotten even more intense. Toni knows she doesn’t deserve Lucky, so she does everything she can think of to push him away. Lucky isn’t one to back down from a challenge, though. He’s going to do everything he can to prove to Toni that she is everything he wants.

Honestly, I thought Elle Casey came up with the perfect situation for Toni and Lucky. She brought them closer together in a fun way. Toni wasn’t prepared for her feelings or relationship with Lucky. It brought out her vulnerable side. The confusion and anger she felt created a humorous storyline. It also showed what a strong, amazing character Lucky was. I loved the way their story played out.

Wrong Question, Right Answer was a great addition to The Bourbon Street Boys series. I can’t wait to see what Elle Casey has in store for the next book in the series. I’m really hoping it’s Toni’s brother Thibault’s story.

Review: What’s Left of Me by Jennifer Loring

What’s Left of Me
Series:
The Firebird Trilogy, #2
Author: Jennifer Loring
Publication Date: July 26, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Sports Romance
Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

Recovering from years of living the superstar hockey life wasn’t easy, but now Aleksandr Volynsky finally has everything…

He’s married to the love of his life, expecting a daughter, and has a new job as an assistant coach with his old team, the Buffalo Gladiators. His happiness is short lived, however, when a sexual assault allegation surfaces, and Alex is forced to cooperate with an investigation for a crime he didn’t commit.

Stephanie Hartwell is juggling her dream job with marriage and motherhood, but she’s not convinced she’s doing any of it well…

Stephanie’s stress level goes from bad to worse when she’s diagnosed with a serious illness. Battling declining health and the critics who question her commitment to Alex in light of the allegation, she makes a decision that could change their relationship forever.

Alex is afraid he’s about to lose everything—especially when he sees Stephanie’s friend kiss her…

Devastated that his life is spiraling out of control again, Alex turns to his friend, Natasha, a Russian pop star. Convinced that Stephanie and her friend Brandon are having an affair, Alex resumes his self-destructive behavior.

What Alex doesn’t know is Stephanie has been conducting a secret investigation of her own. She learns the truth behind the sexual assault—a truth no one, especially Alex, expects.

With everything now out in the open, can Stephanie and Alex commit to a fresh start for the sake of their daughter, or will the ghosts of their pasts finally tear apart everything they have left?


This is probably bad to admit, but I could almost just copy and paste my review from Firebird (The Firebird Trilogy, #1) in and call it good. While the story in What’s Left of Me is different than that in the first book, the characters are exactly how I remember them. And that’s a great thing!

What’s Left of Me picks up not too far from where Firebird left off. Stephanie and Alex have finally found their happily ever after with each other, but sadly, it doesn’t last long. Both are under serious stress. Stephanie and Alex are coping with a rape scandal against Alex. It drives a wedge between them that is further widened by the lack of trust they still have in each other and a health scare for Stephanie. The rift between them causes both of them to spiral out of control.

What’s Left of Me was another amazing story that was constantly building. What stood out to me the most about it was the all of the drama in the story. I was completely sucked into it. There were so many raw moments. The characters went through so many real life situations. New struggles were constantly popping up, the way they do sometimes in life, and they just couldn’t catch a break. Their reactions and emotions were honest and relatable.

I continued to love the hotheaded jerk that Aleksandr was. He may not have always handled things well or appropriately, but he loved his girls fiercely. He would have done anything for them.

Stephanie still drove me nuts. She made some tough decisions that I didn’t agree with, but I couldn’t fault her for them. I understood why she needed to do the things she did. But, in the end, I loved what her influence did for Alex.

I absolutely loved the journey this book took me on. It was filled with so many ups and downs, but I couldn’t have been happier with the end. I would highly recommend What’s Left of Me — just make sure to read Firebird first so you don’t miss out on the beginning of Aleksandr and Stephanie’s love story!

Review: Forbidden Fling by Skye Jordan

Forbidden Fling
Series:
Wildwood, #1
Author: Skye Jordan
Publication Date: July 26, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Note: I received this book from Amazon Publishing via Goodreads in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ .5

Synopsis:

Delaney Hart has come a long way from her wild youth, dating tattooed bikers at her father’s bar, The Bad Seed. But when his death pulls her back to Wildwood, California, she must stay to renovate the dive he left her. And also face the lies and secrets that sent her running ten years before.

When Wildwood’s chief building inspector, Ethan Hayes, shows up on the property, Delaney doesn’t recognize him. The last thing he wants to do is save the bar where his cousin died in a brawl. But the good boy from her past is all too willing to remind her of the bad girl she used to be. And one night of passion leaves them both in a compromising position.

The last place Ethan should be is in Delaney’s bed. Guilt, family pressure, and plans for a brewpub of his own make shutting down The Bad Seed his top priority…until his feelings for Delaney interfere. Because her future depends on the success of the bar’s renovation and his dreams are rooted in its failure, their forbidden romance may be destined for heartbreak.


I was very pleased with Forbidden Fling. It’s the first book I’ve read by Skye Jordan and I wasn’t sure what to expect. So many Contemporary Romances resemble each other. It’s sometimes hard to tell them apart. Forbidden Fling was one that stood out from the crowd. The fast-paced story was beautifully written and exciting to read. I loved all the issues the history of Wildwood’s families created.

Forbidden Fling was a forbidden romance. It centers around the small town of Wildwood and family histories of its inhabitants. Delaney and Ethan should hate each other based on one horrible incident in their pasts, but one glorious night together makes that impossible. No matter how many reasons there are to stay away from each other, they can’t fight their growing attraction.

The characters in Forbidden Fling were so well thought out. I loved Delaney and Ethan. Their chemistry was off the charts sexy, and they had such a sweet relationship. But what I loved just as much were all the supporting characters. They added so much to the story! Ethan’s entire scandalous family made the story so much more interesting! For once, it wasn’t the love story that drove me to read the book, but what was going on all around it. I loved it!

My only little complaint about the story was how quickly it wrapped up at the end. I was surprised when it ended. I expected a little more of what the future entailed for Delaney and Ethan. Although, I do have a feeling I’ll get to see more of them in book 2!

Forbidden Fling was a wonderful Contemporary Romance. I would highly recommend it to Contemporary Romance readers who love a great story combined with sensual scenes.

SYNOPSIS:

Hockey’s most eligible bachelor must run interference to get the one girl he can’t have.

Sydney:
I’d never even heard of Caleb Prescott, God’s gift to hockey. Who watches hockey anyways? Not me, I’m too busy with college and work. My part-time just for fun job has now asked me to recruit this player for a new dating show. Sounds easy enough. . .until he insists I become part of the show.

Caleb:
I only agreed to compete on the dating show to get closer to Sydney—the redhead pixie I’d do anything to see again. But unlike the women competing for my affection, or the puck bunnies desperate for my attention, Sydney isn’t impressed by my hockey skills. I never miss a shot, I don’t care if she calls interference, I’ll do anything to win her heart.

goodreads-badge-add-38pxREVIEW:

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

I have to admit Interference caught my eye with two words in its synopsis: hockey player. I cannot resist a romance with a hockey player as one of the main characters. Hockey romances are one of my favorites! That’s pretty funny considering I don’t even follow hockey, but there’s just something about them.

Interference was different from other hockey romances I’ve read. Instead of revolving around a college or professional hockey season setting, it took place in the off-season. There weren’t really any game scenes. The book mostly took place on a cruise ship. I’ve only read a couple of other books taking place on a cruise ship and Interference was by far my favorite. I think that was because of another super fun aspect of the book — the reality TV show.

Caleb, a famous hockey player, was approached by casting assistant Sydney to star in a new reality dating T.V. show. Caleb’s not really interested in participating or finding the perfect mate, but he finds himself unable to say no to Sydney. There’s something about the petite redhead that does something to him.

The more Caleb gets to know Sydney, the more he doesn’t want to do the reality show. But with no other choice, he’s forced to “date” all of the women Sydney chose for him that are supposed to be “his type”.

I absolutely loved the reality show aspect of this book and how it shaped Sydney and Caleb’s relationship. It added a humorous aspect and I loved how it painted the world of reality dating shows. I could imagine this whole scenario taking place in real life. There were so many barriers to them having a long-term relationship. I loved all the drama that came with the reality dating show.

Caleb was a fun male love interest. Not only was he a sexy hockey star, but he was a good guy. He was nice and respectful. I loved his close family dynamic. It totally cemented his good guy status. Sydney was also a great character. She was a career driven women who was both smart and beautiful.

Caleb and Sydney’s relationship was so much fun to watch unfold.The only thing that bugged me a bit about their romance was the amount of insta-love in the beginning. It was a little hard to believe that Caleb and Sydney would be so connected to each other after a week. The author tried to dispel my disbelief of the situation with a great point by Caleb’s dad, but it still seemed a little out there to me.

Interference was a really fun contemporary romance. It had three things I love in a love story: a hockey player, a cute romance and an interesting plot. I would highly recommend it to contemporary romance readers. It would be a great book to end your summer vacation with.

Interference Teaser 2

EXCERPT:

Caleb

As she was about to rush into explaining when I would board the cruise-liner, as if I had agreed to it, I held up my hand. “Miss Meadows.” God that sounded too formal for a woman like her. “Sydney,” I tried again, definitely preferring the taste of it on my tongue. “How about we meet over coffee or something tomorrow? Ten?”

Her eyes widened slightly, just briefly, before she nodded with a fixed smile in place. “Of course. Yes, that will give you more time to let it sink in. So long as you agree to—”

I cut her off with a grin. While yes, this show was against everything I had ever thought for myself, I had a feeling that sitting with Sydney and talking to her about the show, as if I were agreeing to it, would be the only time I’d see this gorgeous redhead again. I didn’t quite know what was drawing me to this short pixie of a woman, but I definitely wanted to see her again. Tomorrow I’d have no time constraints and she could talk all she wanted.

But before I realized the words were out of my mouth though, I said, “I’ll do it,” agreeing to her pitch.

Shit. Fuck.

The smile filling her face wasn’t one I was about to take away, and her amber eyes danced, lightening just slightly to bring out fiery red specks. “We can discuss contestants tomorrow then. Wonderful. Oh, great!”

I had to swallow a chuckle at her obvious excitement. We agreed on a place to meet and I watched her leave out of the corner of my eye while heading toward the ice.

Like I said, I liked her ass.

Review: Tapping the Billionaire by Max Monroe

Tapping the Billionaire
Series:
Billionaire Bad Boys, #1
Author: Max Monroe
Publication Date: April 26, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Humor

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

Blind dates? Online dating profiles? Been there, done that.

Georgia Cummings has zero luck with dating, and the era of the internet is not her friend.
No matter how fast she runs, how many corners she turns, she can’t find her way out of this weird, alternate universe where men think dick pics are a replacement for small talk and getting to know a girl. One more crotch selfie and she might write men off for good…

But why can’t she stop fantasizing about him?

Kline Brooks is the quintessential billionaire bad boy—dark, styled, short hair, muscles for days, and a panty-dropping smile.
Except—he isn’t.

As his employee, he won’t touch her with a ten foot pole.
But she won’t touch him either.

Too bad their hormones missed the memo.


Tapping the Billionaire is one of those books you pick up when you’re looking for a laugh or a good time. It was so hilarious. I can’t tell you how many times I found myself giggling!

Not only was it funny, but it had wonderful characters and a sweet love story. I loved the way neither Georgia or Kline saw their attraction to each other coming. The more they got to know each other and the more the closer they came, the more I fell in love with them both.

I couldn’t put down Tapping the Billionaire. I loved each and every moment I spent with it. It was everything I love in a contemporary romance. Tapping the Billionaire was sexy, funny and heart warming. It’s a book I’ll be telling all my romance loving friends to read.
