BOOMER BY K.L SAVAGE
I left my life behind me.
I need room to breathe and room to think, to make my own choices and to own my mistakes.
Bitterness and anger cloud my judgment when it comes to the MC. What is so great about them that I can't have on the outside? What is so great about the patch?
That is all I've experienced with the club.
I hated to leave my sister. She's the only reason I stayed as long as I did.
But it's time for something new.
And yet, I find myself searching for trouble, wanting—needing to be someone's savior.I have the best poker face, but when I lay down my winning hand and they shove a girl at me, bound and scared, for my prize, I know I've landed in the middle of something bigger than me.The girl? Scarlett Rose.
My reason for being.
I just have to prove it to her.
She needs protection, and I'll die before they hurt her again.

I liked it. Boomer is a dark, gritty read and everything I enjoy in an MC romance.
I read Reapers Rise a novella and I liked the dynamics of the club but I wasn't all that interested in where Reapers story was going to go, not being a fan of the huge age gap romance I skipped the rest of Reapers story and didn't read the next book. I was however interested in Boomers story.
The young boy who was taken in by the club following the death of his father, the boy with an urge to blow things up and set things on fire.
Boomers story takes you on the journey of how he leaves the club to find himself and in that process then finds and rescues the imprisoned girls and in addition finds love along the way. It's dynamite.
He falls hard, fast and Boom.
The plot contains sex trafficking, sexual abuse but does not go into detail, just enough to give you an idea of what the girls have been through and how Boomer discovers the rogue Ruthless MC chapter who have destroyed all moral boundaries and what their club stands for.
An enjoyable and exciting read. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in this series
Can what happens in Vegas stay in Vegas?
Taking a well-earned break with her best friend, Sam Walker would never have expected to be faced with her brother, or his teammates enjoying a pre-season stag party.
Sam knows the single footballer mentality and didn’t expect to be drawn to the charismatic one and only Jackson Taylor.
One night. That’s all he wanted. But after just one night with Sam, he knew once would never be enough!
Tempers and fists fly when a misunderstanding occurs that causes friendships to be tested and hearts to be broken.
Can Jackson convince Sam that his days as a well- known ‘player’ are behind him?
A brothers best friend and playboy romance.
Jackson is cocky, charming, he's also a player on and off the field.
When Jackson sets his sites on his friend and team mates sister Sam there's instant attraction and chemistry.
Sam is aware of Jackson's reputation and with the additional warnings from her brother she tries to stay clear of Jackson. But what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right?..
Jackson has to up his game and wants to prove to Sam that he wants her and only her now.
I love these kind of reads, where the playboy becomes a swoon worthy contestant as he wins over the woman he loves.
Brilliant characters and story.

I knew going in that this was a love triangle, that's why I read it, I love the drama and the angst with these kinds of reads. Intoxication however threw me at every turn.
Sianna, you could say she's a young woman down on her luck, her parents are dead, she has an ogre of an Aunt, she loses her job because she won't sleep with the boss, then she finds herself homeless. I immediately felt sorry for her.
Out of the blue, and by chance, she ends up with an offer she can't refuse when she meets an older man, a stranger, with whom she has immediate attraction and chemistry. The guy, knowing her predicament and knowing she won't just take money from him, offers Sianna one night with him for enough money to get her on her feet.
After days of debating the offer, she accepts.
I've read a few books like this so this isn't anything new, although I have to say their night is frickin hot!!
A night of passion, filled with desire and lust but there's an undeniable connection, chemistry, and something more.
Sianna is woken the next morning by a text on his phone and reads the message. OH, OH, It's from his wife. She leaves while he sleeps and doesn't look back despite feeling heartbroken, she also leaves without the money.
Now like I said, I knew this was a love triangle but when I discovered this older guy was in a loveless arranged marriage I thought this isn't so bad, this isn't that much of a love triangle. BUT oh boy was I wrong, this was just the ripple that leads to a tidal wave of unexpected emotional dilemmas later on in the story.
After her night with the stranger, the plot jumps to eighteen months later when Sianna is on her feet and in a job she loves. Yay, the girl sorted herself out all on her own.
She seems more brazen, more confident, and gone is the blushing young woman especially when she meets the next guy in the story.
Her change in character had me a little confused. What happened to the shy young women who had never been with a man in the previous chapters? What happened in that eighteen months for her to grow balls? despite my dismay, I went with it. There are a few other things in the story that threw me, I would have liked more info on her cousin and who were the other guys she shared a house with? Chunks were missing, chunks of her puzzle weren't painting the picture and while I'm pondering about that, what happened to the Aunt? and why the heck did she take a vibrator with her when she was childminding, who does that?.
Anyway, I digress and I tried not to dwell on these questions that had started to swirl in my head and so I read on.
I don't want to give too much of the plot away, but I will tell you I was hooked. There wasn't any content in this story that made me cringe, that made me think it was wrong or immoral but what I did feel was that at every turn in the plot I was left thinking where the heck is this all going to go to next.
I don't know if you would call it bad luck, fate, or destiny, but before Sianna reaches her happily ever after she finds herself in one hell of a predicament, two loves in her life, torn between two men. Sianna has one hell of a decision to make and that there is the love triangle I never expected.
My first book by this author. I don't read love triangles that often but I do love a book with angst and I really enjoyed this. Charlene's writing style was easy to follow and the plot easy to follow most of the time, so I would definitely read more from this author. What I am looking forward to reading next is the story of the guy who sadly didn't get the girl. A small cliffy has me desperate to know what happens next.
Told in first person dual pov. Available in KU. A standalone love triangle romance. Contains sex lots of it. Enjoy.
One New York borough (okay two boroughs). Four book boyfriends to fall in love with. Four full-length standalone novels with crossover characters that appear together in The Plus Ones. Bonus epilogues for all four novels that can only be found in this collection.
This collection includes: Rebound with Me (bonus epilogue and 5000 words longer than the original 2018 version), Come Back to Bed (bonus epilogue), Tonight You’re Mine (bonus epilogue) and The Plus Ones (bonus epilogue).
Rebound With Me
Vince and Nina: A man and a woman whose exes are now dating each other. One awesome bad idea. One hot summer fling that just might be the real thing.
Come Back to Bed
Matt and Bernadette: Two neighbors. Nothing in common except a wall and a dog. No strings. No problem!
Tonight You're Mine
Chase and Aimee: Just the two of them. Just for one night. Except that tomorrow they’ll have to start working together, and his business partner likes her too…
The Plus Ones
Keaton and Roxy: One Caribbean couples-only resort. Reservations for six friends who want to escape Brooklyn in the dead of winter. Two married couples. Two fakers who hate each other’s freaking guts.
This is a brilliant box set and I can't recommend it enough.
The audio version is brilliantly narrated.
Each book features two characters who fall in love, each story completely different and entertaining in its own way.
Funny moments, hot moments, brilliant loveable and likeable characters.
In THE PLUS ONES, this is the last book in this box set and it's Keaton and Roxy's story.
All the couples from this series plan to go on a romantic break to a couples resort. The couples don't want to leave out their two single friends Roxy and Keaton and agree that they could pretend to be a couple so they can join them, the thing is Keaton and Roxy have been enemies for years.
Roxy and Keaton eventually agree to go along as a pretend couple so they can spend time with their friends on a vacation. I loved the last book, I also enjoyed revisiting the lives of all the couples from each book previously.
I can't even pick a favourite out of this box set, Loved them all.
I found me a new favourite author. Definitely going to be reading more from Kayley Loring.
TEMPTED HEIR BY MICHELLE HEARD
Christopher Hayes and I have always been close. He’s my best friend. My person. The one who knows all my secrets.
He’s the most sought after bachelor.
Me? I want nothing more than to have my own child.
The instant Christopher finds out about my date with the sperm bank, my best friend takes it upon himself to choose the donor.
Only, no sperm out there is good enough for my eggs.
Then Christopher makes me an offer I can’t refuse. He’ll be my sperm donor.
The last thing I expected was for my best friend to turn into an unrecognizable alpha the instant I said yes.
Christopher Hayes, rich and handsome,
Kissed the girls and made them cry.
When Dash wanted to play,
Christopher decided it was time to stay
AVAILABLE IN KU
A best friends to lovers romance.
Emotional, heartwarming, hot. Tempted Heir even had me hopeful for that hea at one point when the doubts kicked in.
It wouldn't be a book by Michelle Heard if it didn't have that extra something that has you eagerly turning the pages wanting to know what happens next, and this book definitely has that.
Tempted Heir can be read as a standalone, I didn't feel like I needed to know the family tree, or who was who in this story, I was just completely swept away with Dash and Christopher's story and their journey. I basically loved every minute of it and couldn't put my kindle down.
Another brilliant addition to the series, completely different from the previous book featuring Christopher's brother Tristan.
Another fantastic read by this author.
THAT GUY BY KIM JONES
He’s That Guy.
You know, the hero in almost every romance novel.
The super-rich, powerful CEO who is beyond sexy. Lives in a penthouse. Is wicked in bed. Has massive…feet. Is kind of a jerk, but really he’s not because he harbors some major secret that, once revealed, explains why he is the way he is—therefore completely redeeming himself and making all the readers who hated to love him swoon….
Yeah. That one.
Well, I found him.
I’m a writer who has spent years searching for the perfect muse.
Now that I know he exists, I have a mission.
To make him fall in love with me.
This should be easy. I mean, I have issues, but above all, I’m a great catch.
Problem is, I did a stupid thing.
And now he hates me.
Unfortunately for him, he’s my That Guy.
And he’s going to love me….
Whether he wants to or not
Funny, so funny, boy did I laugh at some of the scenes in this book.
The whole book is like a p** take on romance tropes as the heroin sets out to find That guy, the kind of guy books are written about to help her with her own romance novel. Did she ever write it? I've not a clue but I enjoyed Penelope's journey to finding her perfect guy anyway.
If you need a laugh at some outrageous scenes with a quirky character, a good and different plot then I recommend giving this book a try. I enjoyed the audio and probably more than I would have reading it
I listened to this book in audio and the narrator did a brilliant job at bringing the characters to life. I think the audio compliments the story better than if you were reading it.
