Review of Dirty Prince by Vanessa Waltz


I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. 

In this book we meet Liam and Daisy. Liam has been dubbed by the press as a the dirty prince due to all the picture of him with various women. Daisy gets a fake passport saying she is from Canada instead of the U.S. because she knows she is not allowed into the country without an escort. What she really wants is a story on the country and the dirty prince himself. However when she slaps the prince for a comment she is immediately jailed and they figure out she is really from America. The king is a cruel ruler and sentences her to 10 years of hard labor in the camps. Daisy doesn't know what this means but one night on this cinder-block they call a bed is all she needs to determine this is not for her. The prince comes to her with a proposal but can she go along with it. Does she trust the dirty prince enough to be his princess?

Liam knows his father is cruel and he knows the country needs a new leader so he is bidding his time until his father dies and he becomes ruler. That doesn't mean that he isn't irritating him at every turn with all of those photos. However when the American girl comes into the picture she is like a breath of fresh air for him. She doesn't take his back talk and doesn't fall at his feet. So when his father tells him he has 30 days to choose a bride he knows the perfect one and if it pisses off his father all the better. The only thing now is can he get her to agree to be his princess?

This is a great story about love, duty, and never losing your fun side through out it all. In this book we see good fighting evil in many forms. This is one of those story where you may root for the heroin through most of the book but chance to the hero at other times. This book will make you laugh, make you want to hit someone, and hope that it all doesn't end. I would highly recommend this book it will have you hooked from the first word to the very end. 

Review of Bad Potion by Michelle Fox


I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. 

In this book we meet Marion and Aidan. In this book Aidan is one of the Fairy Queen's honor guards. When his mouth gets away from him and he makes a rude comment that has the Queen punishing him. So she sends him away with a curse on him, she does allow him to choose the place and he thinks the quickest place to rid himself of the curse is Las Vegas. Little does he know how much work he will really have to put into it to rid himself of this curse. What will Aidan do when he finds the woman who can help him with the curse doesn't want anything to do with him?

Marion is on the run she believes the wards that are on Las Vegas will help to protect her from he psycho ex. The thing is while she is trying to learn everything she can in her potions class she is getting tripped up on the love spell. The real problem with this if she can't pass this class she can't take magical defense and that she thinks is the only way to protect herself from her mage ex. Marion has the scars to prove that she makes bad choices when it comes to men so when Aidan sees her in a club and tries to talk to her she does what she always does to feel safe run. The problem with this is she has a meddlesome roommate who just wants to see her happy. What happens when there is no where to run and she isn't sure what she feels for Aidan? Will she open herself up again or run from something good?

This is an amazing story about taking a chance on something special no matter what the future may hold. We find that both of these people have hurts and fears and though they want more they worry about opening up to it. This story will have you wanting to read more in this series. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Review of Entitled by Danielle Slater & Roxy Sinclaire


I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. 

In this book we meet Ayron Winters and Devlin Masters. Ayron has had quite the life when she was little she lost both of her parents and went to live with her grandma. Her grandmother worked hard to give Ayron a good life. They were never rich but she was able to leave college debt free and pay cash for her car. Ayron is a psychologist and is always like her grandma trying to give something back to those around her. Little did she know when she tries to give back to one of her patients that it will be the one who maybe she should be a little more selfish with. 

Devlin was born with a silver spoon in his mouth but missed the love of his parents. His mother took her life when he was just 12 years old and his father was a workaholic. So when his father sees him following in his footsteps he makes a move to help him see there is a life out there. Devlin's dad now sees what working all the time did to his children but before it is too late he wants to help them change. The problem is Devlin is so angry over the loss of his mother no one is sure if he can be helped but his father will do anything to help. So when the psychologist from his youth recommends Ayron to David Masters for his son he jumps at the chance. Devlin however knows none of this all he knows is the beautiful woman who got away from him at the club is in his sights again and he's not letting her get away twice.

In this book we see some of the ways that people deal with loss and depression. One of Ayron's clients is a hoarder because she doesn't want to loose anything more. Since the devastating loss of her husband her things are all she has. Devlin deals with the loss of his mother with destructive rage. These are just the ways that they know how to deal with their loss, but can she show them a better way or because they have had these patterns so long that they can't change them. There are many other things that happen in this book that I want to tell you about but as a reader myself I don't want to spoil any surprises. This book will have you hooked from the beginning to the very end. These characters will be ones you won't let go of anytime soon

Excerpt
Love, a word never on my radar, has now taken over my existence.  My world revolves around this man. 
I’m in love with him because of the deep connection I felt the second I saw him and dealing with the torture of this week has only intensified my feelings.  My mind went crazy, thinking of everything he went through, as I examined all of the marks on his body.  I can tell he was whipped many times.  The wounds are starting to heal, but I’m afraid the surface scars will always be there.  And I don’t even want to think about the internal scars something like this would bring.
I don’t care what he looks like or how much this will torment him.  He takes me and I take him just the way he is.  He’s been point blank about wanting me from the first day we met, and now it’s time I match his determination.  His blastoff introduction to have me on my knees that first day could’ve so easily gone a different way.  I’m just glad I felt the connection the second I laid my eyes on him.

New York Times bestselling authors Angela Graham and S.E. Hall have teamed up again to bring you a full-length, steamy new romance.

Echo Kelly is loyal to her studies, family, and aerial artistry. She has no time for or interest in anything else, and is heartbroken when her oldest brother, Sebastian, gets accepted to a study-abroad program— exchanging places with cocky, not-at-all-shy foreign exchange student Kingston Hawthorne.

Kingston Hawthorne had the life every twenty-year-old guy dreams of— endless cash, easy women, and fast cars— until his father ripped it all away, shipping him off to the States and placing him temptingly close to the underage virgin who fascinates him in the most challenging of ways.

With Kingston’s bedroom just a connecting bathroom away from Echo’s, the chemistry between them is even more enticing than the notes he leaves for her on the shower door.

How long can you pretend you’re just friends?

 Excerpt

I creep silently into the house and find a tinfoil-covered plate on the kitchen counter: the dinner my mom saved for me, even though I'm sure my father said something along the lines of, “If she wants to eat, she can sit down, on time, with the rest of us.”
I smile to myself at the small victory. My dad may think he rules the roost, but he doesn't call the last shot when it comes to my mom taking care of her babies.
After I finish off the still-warm chicken and potatoes as quietly as possible, I tiptoe past my parents’ bedroom, paying special attention to each step I take—or, more specifically, avoiding the floorboards that creak.
My father's stern voice pierces the darkness. "We'll talk in the morning, young lady."
Damn, he's good. I literally wobbled left to right like a drunk person, nailing the silent boards, and he still heard me.
"Yes, sir," I spit out before hurrying up the staircase to my bedroom.
My grandfather, smart man that he was, built this house after he had children. With the master suite on the bottom floor and the kids' rooms upstairs, there was no getting past the parents. But somehow, Grandpa had forgotten to take into account that our family has studied the art of Aerialism for generations. So once you're up in your room, getting out of it undetected isn't much of a problem—a caveat I know for a fact my older brother Sebastian took advantage of often. Mostly because he used my balcony to do so nine times out of ten.
I head straight for a hot shower, not allowing my overworked muscles to stiffen. The entire time I stand under the spray, I stare through the glass at the closed door on the far side of the room. Sebastian’s bedroom is connected to mine by a Jack and Jill bathroom, but my brother isn't on the other side anymore. Tonight, and every night for this school year, he’ll be in England, his room vacant. The thought is the final blow to my day.
Once I've dried off and tied my robe, I open his door slowly, with tears in my eyes. I’m not sure why—maybe to see the proof of his absence, naively hoping that will help settle my anxiety?
It's dark inside, of course, but the thin drapes are parted and the moon is full and bright after tonight's storm.
My breath hitches, my feet coming to a complete and sudden halt when I spot the large body lying in my brother’s bed. It’s almost comforting at first; I find myself wishing it was Sebastian, but I know it’s not. And I can only assume it’s Kingston. I have no clue why my parents didn’t just drop him at his dorm, or why I’m not turning around to go back to my own room. But now, as I stand so close, my curiosity is piqued.
From this angle and lighting, he could almost pass for Sebastian: dark-brown hair cut short, muscularly outlined back, sleeping on his side. But whereas Sebastian sleeps under the covers, our houseguest has the sheet and comforter shoved down past a tight, perfectly rounded ass that’s filling out his black boxer briefs in a way I find startlingly sinful. He also has his arms shoved under his pillow—another difference that makes it hard for me to pretend.
I creep a bit farther into the room, checking out his luggage—designer and monogrammed, all matching of course, and reeking of luxury and fine leather. Fancy, but mismatching horribly with the black (somewhat sexy) combat boots that—
Umpf,” I grunt despite my desperate efforts to remain quiet, reaching out for anything to brace myself on. But it’s no use. I fly forward, having tripped over the second, not-nearly-as-sexy-now boot.
"I was told you were the graceful one."
His low, gravely taunt comes out of nowhere and startles me further, throwing me backward in the opposite direction, my balance completely lost. With my hands flailing, my only hope now is that the luggage provides a soft landing.
But I never meet it, or the floor. Instead, two strong hands rescue me, snaring my wrists and pulling me down on top of one seriously hard, hot—temperature-wise, I mean—body.
"I'd presume you to be Echo and say hello, but again, not the graceful girl I was expecting. So, you are…?" He looks up at me with a smug twitch to his lip and devastating twinkle in his gray—Are they really gray, or is that the lighting?—eyes.
"I…uh…” I stammer idiotically, dressed only in a robe that’s far too revealing for the position I find myself lying in: across the bare torso of perhaps the most gorgeous guy I've ever seen up close, in person. And we are very up close.
I attempt to push off him, but his hands slide down to my hips and grip tighter.
"Yes," I gasp, before battling for a sense of authority in my next response. "I'm Echo. Sorry I woke you, I just wasn’t…expecting you to be in here.” His brows rise, practically screaming that he sees right through me. “Let me up! I tripped over your big, stupid boots, then you scared me."
"My apologies, Echo.” A quiver plays down my spine at the way my name rolls off his lips in that decadent English accent of his. “Had I known you'd be visiting my room tonight, I'd have taken more care in setting my belongings out of your way.”
“I should’ve left when I realized you were in here, so we’re even. Can you let me up now?”
His grip remains firm as his smile deepens. “I must admit, I am rather enjoying this version of our introduction. Far better than a mere ‘How do you do?’ over dinner.” He’s sporting a full grin now, blindingly bright even in the dimly lit room.
All I can do is stare at him, words failing me. I half suspect I'm dreaming, but I can feel, long and stiff against my stomach, that this humiliation is, in fact, reality.
"I’m quite comfortable, so do feel free to stay as long as you like. And if you really want to give me a smashing welcome, don't be afraid to wiggle around a bit." His smirk grows impossibly wide as he thrusts his hips upward, pressing his erection firmer against me.
And just like that, my speechlessness evaporates.
"Are you insane?" I use both hands to shove hard against his chest, but I'm no match for his relentless clutch on my hips. "Let me go! You're a guest in our home tonight—you can't just manhandle me when the mood strikes!"
"Ah, grace period.” He nods. “Understood. So, tomorrow night, then?"
"Unbelievable!" I seethe, wriggling around in hopes of escape.
His fingers dig deeper, but the ravenous gleam in his eyes softens. "A joke, Echo. My apologies. Perhaps I took it too far."
My anger soothes to a low simmer. He's got a certain playful charm about him, and maybe this is just his very forward way of easing the awkwardness that I instigated in the first place by sneaking into the room in the middle of the night.
But just as I start to form a forgiving smile, he ruins all the excuses I’d just mentally compiled.
"Can I be frank with you?”
          “Will you let me up?” I toss back.
“Of course.”
“Then let’s hear it.” I wait for him to say God only knows what—a heartfelt apology maybe?—but instead, his expression sharpens into one of pure lust.
“I’ve lied to you. The truth is…I'd much prefer it if you grinded down on me a bit, Love. Wiggling is for strangers, and we're not strangers anymore, now are we?"
“Ugh,” I growl, propelling myself off him when his laughter loosens his hold. I stomp out of the room, his sounds of amusement lingering behind me.
And that’s how I met our foreign exchange student, Kingston Hawthorne.
