Bethany moves to Chicago to start a new life. She gets a new job in a top financial bank which puts in the hands of two men that are completely opposite from each other.

Kent Plack, has no interest in being with a woman for longer than one night. He's spoiled, lazy and gets what ever he wants from who ever he wants. When Kent first meets Beth he tries to hit on her but she is not affected by his charm at all. When she sees him, she can't believe how good looking he is but the minute he opens his mouth while alone, everything changes. Kent tries to act hard but Bethany can see Kent for who he really is, the exact image that he doesn't like others to see. Because Beth can see right through him, they soon become good friends. Best friends in fact. They hang out all the time and have no secrets between them. Some of the things that they say are hilarious. Kent has no boundaries and gets in Beth's business all the time.....

"Wow, I've seen a lot of things before, but I don't think I've ever seen anything this big." He pinched my overly large flowery pink-and-green underwear with his fingers on each side of the cotton.


"Kent, drop my granny panties, right now!"

"Granny panties?"
He held his stomach as his laughter echoed through the whole apartment. "Oh. My. God. Granny panties."


I seriously laughed a lot in this book when it came to the friendship that Kent and Beth had. It made me wish that I had a close guy friend that I could joke around with! One thing I loved about Beth is how she always wanted to eat. It became what Kent and Beth always did. They ate together.


"Sandwich?"


"And that, sir, is why we're friends."


"From the beginning, I knew this was the key to your friendship. You ate that pancake at that diner as if you hadn't eaten for days."




As Beth and Kent become closer in their friendship, Beth also starts to date Brian Burcham. Brian is everything Beth has always looked for in a man. He's husband material, has ambition when it comes to his work, and wants a family complete with the white picket fence. At first Beth doesn't want to be attracted to Brian because she has always had a rule about dating coworkers but Brian doesn't take no for an answer. His persistence eventually pays off and gets him his first date with Beth. They start to date and Beth really begins to like him. The only thing standing in their way is Kent's offer....to marry him for money. Beth has a load of debt and knows this will be her way out from underneath it. Beth feels that marrying for money seems simple enough, but when lines become blurred, Beth faces difficult choices, making her realize that the easy way out just made her life even harder.


I can't say much more because I don't want to give anything away. What I will say is that this book was a great read! I gave it 4.5 stars! I totally laughed my butt off but I also shed a few tears. I highly recommend this book and I am totally looking forward to the next one! I can't wait to see where the characters lives are led to next! This was the first book that I have read by Mia and it will not be the last!!!



......."Only you can make granny panties look so damn sexy."



Loved it!!

Rock Country by K. Webster


Rock Country by K. Webster
 
 
 
Synopsis:
Bobby and June were the best of friends as kids. For two years they spent every waking moment together. And just as they started realizing they had potential to be more, Bobby was unexpectedly uprooted to Las Vegas. 

Fast forward fifteen years.

Bobby is now a guitar hero of a very successful rock band. June is wasting away, working at a local diner, and married to an abusive man. Devastating events send Bobby back to Texas to deal with some unsettled issues. When he runs into June, she’s all grown up. No longer that blonde haired, pig-tailed little girl—now she’s the Queen of the South with tanned legs, sexy curves, and more beauty than all the groupies combined. Problem is, June is a shell of her former self—that is, until—Bobby brings the spark back into her life.

What happens when a typical bad boy rocker comes across a sad country song? Why, you get the sweet sound of Rock Country.
 
 
 

 
 
About the Author: 
I’m a thirty-two-year-old self-proclaimed book nerd. Married for nearly eleven years, my husband and I enjoy spending time with our two lovely children. Writing is a newly acquired fun hobby for me. In the past, I’ve enjoyed the role as a reader. However, recently, I learned that I absolutely love taking on the creative role as the writer. Something about determining how the story will play out intrigues me to no end. My husband claims that it’s because I like to control things—in a way, he’s right! 
By day, I run around from appointment to appointment, wearing many hats including, mom, wife, part-time graphic designer, blogger, networker, social media stalker, student, business owner, and book boyfriend hunter. (It’s actually a thing—complete with pink camo. I lurk around the internet, “researching” pictures of hot guys who fit the profile of whatever book boyfriend I’m reading or writing about) 
I guess you can blame my obsession with books on my lovely grandmother, who is quite possibly my favorite person on the planet. At an early age, she took me to the half-priced bookstore each weekend and allowed me to choose a book. Every single time, she caved when I begged for two. Without her encouragement, I wouldn’t have been able to cope during some hard times without my beloved books. 
Currently, I am finishing up my college degree that has taken me forever to complete. It’s just on the list of my many “bucket-list” goals that I subject myself to.
Most days, you can find me firmly planted in front of my computer. It’s my life. If the world ever loses power, I’d be one of the first to die—of boredom! But I guess as long as I have books and a light, I might just survive. 
Looking forward, you can expect to see two more novels in the Breaking the Rules Series. I’m nearly finished with the third. Also, I have a standalone novel that will be released soon as well. 
This writing experience has been a blast, and I’ve met some really fabulous people along the way. I hope my readers enjoy reading my stories as much as I do writing them. I look forward to connecting with you all!

THIRD DAY by Kylie Keene ~ Release Day Blitz





THIRD DATE
Author: Kylie Keene
Genre: New Adult Contemporary; Romantic Comedy 
Standalone Novel with an HEA and epilogue
SYNOPSIS:
At 23, Morgan is a little behind other women her age when it comes to dating and relationships. More specifically, she’s a virgin. Dating wasn’t a priority in high school and college, but now that Morgan has a job and her own apartment, she’s ready to jump back into the dating scene. 

When Morgan’s friends at work inform her that most men expect sex on the third date, she panics. She’s convinced her lack of experience will be a total turn-off for guys and make for a really awkward third date. Her friends tell her to just do it with a random guy to get it over with, but Morgan isn’t sure that’s what she wants. 

When she meets a guy she’s certain is her dream man, she’s ready to lose it on their third date. But doing so isn’t as easy as she thought. And then there’s the fact that she can’t get another guy out of her head.

Through a series of mishaps and misunderstandings, Morgan eventually finds herself at a place she wasn’t expecting, but the place she wanted to be all along.

EXCERPT:

I head down to the gift shop, hoping and praying it’s not full of people. Luckily, it’s empty because the lunch session is still going on in the main ballroom. 

I search the shop for condoms but can’t find them anywhere. They have everything else; toothbrushes, combs, aspirin, shower caps, tampons, toothpaste. 

The young woman working the cash register sees me searching the store like I’m on some type of scavenger hunt. 

“Can I help you?” she asks.

The woman is in her twenties and has reddish-blond hair that hangs in loose waves several inches past her shoulders. She has huge breasts and is wearing a short black dress that shows off her long legs. I’m just guessing here, but I would say she’s probably not a virgin. Which means she’s likely found herself in need of condoms before and wouldn’t judge me for buying them at a hotel. 

I go up to her and speak softly. “Do you sell condoms here?”

She looks surprised. I’m suddenly offended. Do I look like someone who would never need condoms? I’m no beauty queen but I’m not exactly ugly.

“We keep them back here.” She reaches under the register and opens a drawer. “How many do you need?”

How many do I need? How many does she think I need? 

“Um, just one.”

She gives me a strange look. “They come in packs of three or more.”

“Oh, okay. Three is good.”

“Do you want ribbed, flavored, sensitive, extra sensitive, for her pleasure, glow in the dark?”

I had no idea there were so many different types of condoms. I’ve never actually shopped for condoms. 

She continues. “For flavored we have cherry, citrus, grape—”

“No. Just plain. No flavors. No glow in the dark. No ribbing.”

“So do you want sensitive? Extra sensitive? For her—”

I hear people starting to leave the ballroom, coming out into the lobby. 

“I don’t know. Just give me whatever. It doesn’t matter.”

“For her pleasure.” She holds the package up and smiles. “Why should guys have all the fun, right?” She punches something in the register. “Should I charge it to your room?”

I imagine myself giving the accounting department at work a copy of my hotel receipt with a charge for condoms on it. I’m sure it would just say ‘gift shop’ but with my luck, you never know.

“I’ll just pay with cash. How much is it?”

“With tax, it’s $10.59.”

“For three condoms?” 

She shrugs. “The hotel jacks up the price. When people are desperate, they’ll pay anything.” 

I search my wallet, which is full of ones for some reason. She notices and looks away. Great. Now she probably thinks I work at a strip club. 

People from the conference are starting to linger and talk outside the gift shop. I count my money and find that I only have nine ones. That’s it. I hand her my credit card but she doesn’t take it.

“Sorry, but our machine is down. It’s cash only or I can charge it to your room.”

“I only have $9. I have to run to the ATM. I’ll be right back.” As I’m closing my wallet, my change spills out and goes all over the floor. I bend down to pick up the scattered pennies, nickels, and dimes.

“Let me help you with that.” I look up and see Brad picking up the change.

Shit! What is he doing here? Where did he come from?

“Thanks, but you don’t need to help,” I say, urging him to leave.

He picks up the last penny. “I think we got it all.”

We both stand up and he gives me the change. 

“Are we still meeting for drinks tonight?” he asks.

Cashier girl is observing the scene and I feel her staring. I glance over and see her checking Brad out. I’m sure she can tell from my blushing face that he’s the reason I need the condoms. She smiles at me, as if reassuring me that Brad is worth the ridiculous price they charge for them.

“Yeah. I’ll see you then. I’ve gotta go.” I race out of the gift shop. 

As I’m leaving, cashier girl calls after me. “What about your stuff? Are you coming back with your money?’

I ignore her and hurry back to my room. The whole scene was fate telling me not to do this. I’m not ready. Or Brad’s the wrong guy. Something’s wrong. Buying condoms should not be that hard!

I Love Story TIme's Review of Broken Pieces by Janine Infante Bosco

Broken Pieces (The Riverdale Series Book Two)Broken Pieces by Janine Infante Bosco
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Purchase Link:
http://amzn.to/1nhs6R7




**** I Love Story Time was gifted an ARC of Broken Pieces (The Riverdale Series) by Janine Infante Bosco in exchange for an honest review****

I just got done reading Pieces (book 1) of this series and was so lucky to be able to go right into Broken Pieces. If I had to wait...I would have died!! Literally died!! I didn't even wait to start this, I needed to see what happened between Nick and Samantha (Sam). In book 1, you meet Nick and Samantha and can tell by their heated history that this was going to be good! Sometimes when reading a series, the second book does not live up to the standards of the first book...Broken Pieces did not disappoint!! I LOVED this book just as much as the first. I really liked that even though this book was mainly written to be about Nick and Sam it continued the story between Jake and Cara. Now, before I get into Nick and Sam's story I can not write this review with out mentioning my loving Jake. I thought in Pieces that I was going to die from all the crying I did. Well, this book followed right along and made me ugly cry even more. I can not believe the love and strength that Cara and Jake showed as they continued on their bumpy road. The strength of the family and the support that they were given while dealing with what life brought them... I was truly moved. I won't say too much about how everything works out with them but what I will say is that I LOVE Jake. No matter what he was going through, he never stopped loving and never stopped trying to play match maker between Nick and Sam. He always cared about everyone else first all the while wiggling those famous eyebrows! Just loved Jake and Cara together!

Now for Nick and Sam!! Loved them from the beginning. Loved the teasing that Nick always did to Samantha no matter how much she pushed him away. I love when characters have that love hate relationship in the beginning that builds up all that angst. Nick has always been in love with Samantha but because of how much her family means to him he never pursued a relationship with her in fear of losing them all if things didn't work out. Nick ends up having to leave Riverdale without anyone knowing why. 7 years later he's back and wants nothing more then to be with Sam.

One night 7 years ago, Sam pursued Nick and met him in his hotel room. Nick at first told her she shouldn't be there but he can't fight the chemistry they both have for each other. Then just like everyone else, Sam has no idea why Nick left Riverdale without so much as a goodbye...now he's back! Nick and Sam still have the same chemistry that they once shared 7 years ago but Sam does everything in her power to fight it. Sam has a secret that Nick doesn't know about and Sam refuses to let him in on it. So in return, Sam pushes Nick away at every attempt that Nick makes to get closer to her.

One night when Sam finds herself vulnerable and needing someone, she turns to Nick. Of course Nick is there for her with open arms. Sam starts coming around Nick for one thing. Nick being Nick, he gives in every time. Just thinking about the book makes me think about all the hot scenes. HaHa!! Man Nick has a hot mouth!!


"After I spoke to you I went upstairs alone." He said his voice barely audible as he leaned closer to her ear. His breath on her earlobe sent shivers down her spine. "And the only thing I got off to was picturing your sweet face when I make you come."


Nick wants more from Sam then what she is willing to give....


"You spend the night with me and I'll pleasure you all night. You fall asleep in my bed and you awake in my arms, no notes on the pillow."


Little by little Sam's walls start to come down and she starts letting Nick get closer and closer. Nick can tell that she still is holding back a piece of her heart and does everything he can do get her to give him that final piece......


"We can be good together. I know we can, but you need to be willing to go all in, because I wont have you if i can't have all of you."


Does Sam give him the final piece? I can't tell...you have to find out by reading the book!!! It seriously is one of my favorite series. So listen to me when I say that these books are a MUST READ!! I'm so sad that now I have to wait to read the final installment of the Riverdale Series. I CAN NOT WAIT FOR IT TO COME OUT! I give this book two 5 stars!! Janine...another great book under your belt! I can't wait to read more about Nick and Sam and looking forward to Luke's story!

 **** I Love Story Time was gifted an ARC of Pieces (The Riverdale Series) by Janine Infante Bosco in exchange for an honest review****

I don't even know where to start on this review. I had to wait a few days to be able to write it so that I could process everything! If your looking for a book that has friendship...this book has many. If your looking for a book that represents family...this book has one. If your looking for a book that will make you laugh...this book will. If your looking for a book with passion...this book gives you more than enough. If your looking for a book that is heart breaking...this book will definitely make you ugly cry.

I really loved all the characters in this story. Luke, Jake and Samantha Lanza are siblings. Cara Sloane and Nick Foti are friends of the family. Cara and Nick do not come from the best of families so the Lanza family welcomes them into theirs with open arms. Jake and Cara become the best of friends and so do Luke and Nick.

Jake and Cara are so close and are always together. At the age of 15, their relationship grows as the years go by. Being the good friends that they are, they know everything about one another. Over time, Jake starts sharing all his special moments and all his special places with Cara. Cara jokes with Jake saying that he should save some of those moments and places for his wife one day. Unfortunately, Jake has a different way of thinking.......

"Marriage is over rated and definitely not in my foreseeable future." He laughed and pressed his lips to the top of her head. "Besides, you're my person, if I don't have you to share things with, they're not as meaningful."

As time goes on, Jake and Cara's feelings start to change from friends to much more. However, both are scared to do anything about it because they don't want to ruin the friendship they both hold so close to their hearts. Cara works at a bar and Jake always goes in to hang out with her. While he's there, he realizes he does not like it when he sees Cara talking to other guys and other guys flirting with her. Jake decides that enough is enough and he wants Cara for himself. Cara has been wanting Jake for herself as well but they both know that one night together would change everything. Cara is nervous about ruining their friendship so she asked Jake to tell her that once they do this, that it won't change anything.....

"I can't do that. Because, it changes everything. We take the plunge, and see this through, that's it. No one else for you and no one else for me. You're mine and I'm yours, it's as simple as that. I want you Cara and I'm selfish enough to admit it. Not just tonight, but as long as you'll have me."

"I'm one hundred percent sure, that I want this." She murmured against his lips.

So they take the plunge and boy do they take it! Talk about Hot! Some hot scenes in this book! Cara and Jake's relationship is stronger then ever. Everyone is happy for them and happy that they have finally decided to have what was meant to be all along. Unfortunately, their relationship is not all hearts and flowers. I can not believe the strength that Cara has. Together they fight their battles never giving up....

He reached out and wiped the tears on her cheeks. "You own my heart, and always will."

"I'll cherish it forever."
She whispered and smiled through her tears.

I really loved this story!! I loved everything about it. Loved the friendships, loved the relationships and I could not get enough of Joe and Deb's (Jake's mom and dad) bickering back and forth. Their relationship is too funny! Some of Joe's comments and Deb's remarks are hilarious. This book totally had it all. I LOVED JAKE!! He has the best personality and the warmest of hearts. I can't get enough of him and his wiggling eyebrows! I find my self doing that now that I've read the book! As for the ending, it did leave me with questions and I can not wait to read book 2. I would definitely give this book 5 stars!!! Probably more!!! I highly recommend it to someone who loves a truly heart warming story! Also, I love that I was able to download a new song to my "book songs playlist" on my phone...now I can listen to it and always remember this awesome book!!! Janine did a great job with this book and building the characters so that you fall in love with them!

..... he took in a deep breath, glanced down at their hands, and stared at their bands of strength

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Purchase Link:
http://amzn.to/1lwNHXc




**** I Love Story Time was gifted an ARC by Ashley Simone in exchange for an honest review *****


I really enjoyed this book. I kept flipping through the pages like they were going out of style until I was left hanging! Yes, left hanging! I didn't realize that this was a short story and boy was there a cliffhanger! HaHa!!

I liked that even though it was a short story, it still grabbed my attention and I was able to read in one sitting. Sometimes I can't get past the first few chapters in a book because I lose interest. However, I did not have that problem. I didn't have any problems until it said.....

This is the first part of the Undeniable series, and is continued in Part 2.

Yes, that was when I hit a problem!!! It was the ending...LOL...because I finished it so fast and I didn't have book 2! I need to see what is going on, what comes next for her brother, and most importantly what comes next with Zac and Allie! I still need to find out who Zac is, he's such a mystery and gives nothing away. He's mysteriously sexy and boy does he have some words....

"I can't let you walk away again. Because this is what I want. I want to taste every part of you. I want you moaning and writhing under me. I want you weak and helpless. I want you to scream my name, over and over again."

Mighty HOT! Like I said I enjoyed this book just wish it was a little longer but still a good read!

THE FALLING OF LOVE by Marisa Oldham


The Falling of Love
By Marisa Oldham
  
 

HURTING HER WAS NEVER PART OF HIS PLAN
 
You will never forget your first date, your first kiss, or your first love. You'll also never forget how it felt when it was torn apart.

Seventeen-year old Grace Hathaway does not give much thought to falling in love, until the day that Ian Taylor, rebel and misfit walks into her math class. From their first conversation, Grace is mesmerized by Ian's charisma and rock star fa├žade.

Ian Taylor, a seventeen-year old kid from the wrong side of the tracks tries to ignore the feelings he has for Grace, but is captured by her caring, non-judgmental personality from the moment they meet. Grace becomes Ian's everything and there is nothing he will not do for her. Hurting her was never part of his plan.

“The Falling of Love” will take you on a sweet, emotional journey of two young adults falling in love for the first time, and then tear your heart apart when that love is threatened by dishonesty and betrayal.

**** I Love Story Time was gifted an ARC of The Falling Of Love by Marisa Oldham in exchange for an honest review****

Lets just start out by saying..... I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! If I could give more then 5 stars I would!!

Marisa Oldham did an awesome job on this book! I was hooked just reading the prologue !! Yes, the PROLOGUE!! It was only 2 pages!!! I did not want to put it down. Not only was I sucked in after just reading 2 pages, but by chapter 7, I was already crying!!! There were so many things I loved about this book. So many things that made me fall in love. THEN, at one point, I wanted to throw my kindle just to pick it up and continue reading!! UGH!!!

I loved Grace (Gracie). She was so sweet and innocent. She loved with all of her heart. I loved Ian too even though at some parts in the story he really made me mad! Ian and Grace met in high school. Ian is the new kid that really stands out compared to the other students. His style is Rock 'N Roll down the bracelets that he wears on his wrists. He ends up sitting next to Grace in class and they become friends. Over time, Grace starts to like him hoping that he feels the same way.

Ian and Grace begin dating and let me just say I loved their first date. Ian was so shy when it came to his plans but to me it was perfect!! Ian says and does the most heart warming things. There's so many things that Ian tells Grace that just warmed my heart, Ian is so sweet.....

" I love those soft, sweet kisses you give me on the cheek. It's handsdown one of the best things you do to me."

Then there were parts that I felt so sad for him...

"Your everything I have in this world, Gracie. You're my everything. Nothing else in my life makes me happy the way you do and as far as I'm concerned, I need nothing else in life but you. But I'm not your everything ."

Grace has a older brother named James, and a younger sister named Michelle. I loved both of their characters so much. Loved Michelle's feisty mouth and James's big heart. Ian and Grace come from two different backgrounds and Grace's family accepts Ian with open arms. Ian is overwhelmed with all the love and support that they shower him with......

"You're our family now. This is where you belong. Don't ever question it. Don't ever feel you don't deserve it, because you do. We love you so much."

I can seriously go on and on about this book but I don't want to give too much away. You just have to read it for yourself!! The Falling of Love really has everything in it. Like I said, I loved it and then wanted to throw my kindle and then I loved it some more. I got mad, laughed, and cried and fell in love with every major character. There SO much more to this story then what I am talking about so please, please, please, read this book!! I can't even EXPLAIN the way I felt at the end!!! SERIOUSLY!!! REALLY MARISA??? I need book 2 like now, and if you read this so will you!!!


EXCERPT

Ian lies with his head on Grace’s stomach. Entwining their fingers together, they lie in silence on her bed. They have been this way for hours and he wishes they could stay like this forever. Only
an occasional “I love you” is shared between them. Thunder cracks in the sky and startles Grace.
Ian chuckles and pulls her closer to his body. The rhythmic sound of the rain tapping against the
rooftop and her comforting presence lures him into a state of pure relaxation, soothing his soul.
“I love the sound of the rain,” she says, as she traces the lines on his knuckle with the tip of
her finger.
Ian raises his head to look into her eyes and smiles. “And I love you.”
Climbing on top of her, he lowers his lips to her neck. Grace lets out a heavy sigh that blows
through his hair. Ian trails kisses down her neck, over her collarbone, and stops inches away
from her lips. “Do you know that I love you, Gracie?”
“Yeah, I do, without a doubt.”
He kisses her. “I know you love me too, and it’s freaking amazing,” he says. “You know
what I love?”
She smiles at him. “Me?”
He laughs. “Besides you. It’s something you do to me.”
She looks at him, puzzled. “What?”
“I love those soft, sweet kisses you give me on the cheek. It’s hands-down one of the best
things you do to me.”
Grace brushes Ian’s long auburn hair out of his face and slowly leans into him. Her breath
hits his cheek and the tip of her nose brushes his skin. She gives him a very soft, sweet kiss on his cheek.
“Ah yeah, babe. That’s it. That’s what I love. It’s so sweet and tells me that you love me without any words.” He reaches for her face and cups her chin in between his thumb and forefinger. He pulls her face to his and sucks on her bottom lip. Gradually, he eases his tongue between her two lips and finds her eagerly awaiting his kiss.  “Do you know what I love, Ian?” she asks. Her words are a jumbled mess between Ian’s kisses. “What, baby?” he says within a breath.“I love kissing you. I could spend the rest of my life kissing only you. You’re the best kisser in the entire world.”

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it's been a dream.
Her passion for writing didn't start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it.

Scarlett lives in the Midwest with her sexy husband, two girls, and three furbabies.

After writing a few boring service pieces for some online publications, she went back to her true passion, fiction.

I'm Ashley Johnson and I live in Lake Charles, La with my fiancee and our daughter!

I love to read and write...I love getting lost in all these amazing books :) My fiancee recently learned about my addiction to Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Oops!!

Before this past year, I can't tell you the last time I picked a book up. Then I got an e-reader and suddenly found all these amazing books. It started with Beautiful Disaster and from there I was hooked and realized I wanted to live my dream. And here I am :)

I love to cook and eat...that's what I get for living in Louisiana but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I love music too, I have a serious addiction to iTunes!

That's the basics :)
