Review: Storms in a Shot Glass by Zee Monodee #Romance

The Blurb
A little bump is about to make a lot of ripples...

The quiet, orderly life of personal assistant Jane Smithers takes a ninety-degree turn the day she finds out she accidentally got pregnant from a one-night stand. This is one complication she doesn't need, especially when one knows her world is peopled by lunatic Russian models, an immature boss posing as a CEO, and a mother who would make shark-infested waters look like a midsummer country pond.

The world of corporate lawyer and billionaire tycoon Michael Rinaldi is ruled by cold, hard logic, and straight-on facts. Until the day he meets Jane, and suddenly he has no idea why this insignificant-looking woman has the knack of plunging him head-first into the churning waters of tempestuous emotion and hot-headed impulse.

The last thing either needs is to get tangled in a tabloid frenzy.
Throw in a baby neither thought they wanted and add a dash of very gossipy scandal, and suddenly Jane and Michael realize that the world as they've known it so far will never be the same again.

But will they be able to live with this reality?

My Review
This is a romance with a wonderfully slow burn.  You know the kind where you get to know the characters and really like them. Where it looks like the couple will get together, and then something pulls them apart making the attraction between the hero and heroine even stronger.

I loved Jane. A strong woman who could handle her boss and her mother, and yet was vulnerable in one major area. Don’t get me started on Michael. Rich, powerful, and alpha to the max – there was no way I couldn’t like him, even when some of his actions were questionable.

A fantastic story.

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review but I would have bought it at Amazon.


I give Storms in a Shot Glass five out five maternity dress shaped chocolate bars.

Blurb: 
Accepting Logan’s marriage proposal was the most exciting event of Lorna’s life. But deciding in what country to marry her fiancĂ© proved to be more than a tearful ordeal. When Lorna’s dad announced unexpected news, the wedding wheels spun in a different direction.

With other family members stirring conflict, would there be a wedding? Or would their shared kiss deepen their desire?


Teaser:

The memory of the possessive kiss that unlocked the key to her heart and cleared away the layers of ashes and soot still had the power to rock her body with burning intensity.
"Kiss My Lips, Logan," she moaned, her eyes shut.
The car stopped.
And the moist heat of his lips swept hers in waves of steamy hot kiss. When he released her swollen lips, she touched one trembling finger to her mouth as her eyes fluttered open.
"Come here," he told her, holding out his hand. They were parked in front of a pretty elegant restaurant.
"What are we doing here?" A bewildered expression lurked around her face. The kiss still had her in its strong grip. Her legs shook and she clutched to Logan's arm. He steadied her and nuzzled her neck with his day old cute beard.
"We're having a late lunch."
Her mouth formed into an "O".
"You haven't answered my question. Was it my kiss?" he prodded, his fingers caressed her waist.
"Yes," Lorna admitted. "I couldn't stop thinking about how sweet and warm your mouth felt, how my stomach contracted and how the heat exploded throughout my body."
His hold on her waist tightened. "Please don't stop talking. Tell me more," he said in a husky voice.
She swirled into his arms. "Not today. On our wedding night, I'll answer all your questions about how you make me feel."
Logan groaned as the automatic doors to the restaurant opened wide and they stepped into the carpeted dining area.

Review: Strollers and Stilettos by Nana Malone #Romance #Interracial

The Blurb
What happens when real life gets in the way of Happily Ever After?

Chronic list-making, event planner, Jaya Trudeaux Westhorpe, envisioned a fairytale ending once she married hotel magnate, Alec Westhorpe—complete with a steamy, extended honeymoon and an eventual family.  What she didn't expect was a baby on their doorstep and a family-phobic husband.


When reformed playboy, Alec Danthers Westhorpe, married the woman of his dreams, he thought he’d finally found peace. But a long-hidden secret threatens to jeopardize what he holds most dear.


Warning: Sexy, sass talking women will make you laugh, cry and want a pair of killer footwear.


My Review
Hot. That’s the one word I’d use to describe this book. I’ll add amazing since I can. I’ve read all of the books in the Stiletto Series and loved them all. It was good to reconnect with the gorgeous stiletto women and their men.

The baby added cuteness to the sexy story. I’m not ready to let the stilettos series go so I’m encouraging Ms. Malone to please write some more.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

I give this book 5 stroller shaped chocolate bars.

Cover Reveal: Black Soul by Kiru Taye #UrbanFantasy #Romance

Title: Black Soul
Series: Black Warriors, Prequel
Genre: Urban Fantasy / Paranormal Romance
Cover Artist: Love Bites and Silk
Publication date: October 30
Add to Goodreads
 
He will damn his soul to set hers free. When workaholic high-flying career lawyer Tara Woji takes a well deserved break and meets up with old friends she doesn’t realise the danger lurking in the shadows for her. M’na is a chi, a gatekeeper whose duty is to protect the humans. Tara is his assignment. As the shadows deepen and darkness comes to claim her, he will do whatever it takes to protect her including doing the one thing that releases her powers – unbinding her heart.
 
 
 

Prologue

  M'na lounged in the worn foam armchair, thighs apart, legs stretched out, right hand clutching a short tumbler of whisky. Lord of the Ring posters covered up blue paint peeling off the brick walls. Ironic really, the first time he was going to have sex in a millennium and he'd chosen a demon, with a love for fantasy movies, who lived in a part of the city that could've been Mordor. Desperation flowed in his veins, making him feverish. Sweat dripped down his face. His t-shirt clung to his back, a second skin. He tightened his grip on the glass to stop his hand from shaking and lifted it to his lips. The strong liquor burned his throat as he tossed the whole shot down. Thumped the glass back onto the small table and refilled it from the bottle. One of the advantages, or disadvantages depending on how one chose to look at it, of being a super, alcohol had no effect in normal quantities. But he liked the sting of whisky at the back of his throat and in his chest. It made him feel alive. Something he hadn't felt in a very long time. Shame it couldn't numb the pain searing his soul, his constant companion.
