Review: Seducing the Fireman by Jennifer Bonds

Not a bad read really. A few character issues though but still worth checking out if you love hunky firemen!

Format: .mobi (A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. )
Publisher: Brazen
Release Date: May 2, 2016

Firefighter Jackson Hart is back in Brooklyn and on the hunt for the girl who’s kept him burning for ten long years. The girl he left, in a total prick move, without saying goodbye. Now he’s determined to make it right, to hell with her three-date rule.

But Becca’s not ready to forgive and forget. In fact, she seems determined to stoke his fire every chance she gets. She wants to avoid sexy distractions like him? Fine. Because what she doesn’t know—yet—is that Jax isn’t the kind of man to give up when he wants something. And he always gets what he wants.

Basically Becca’s been nursing a grudge against Jackson Hart every since he left her without a single word ten years ago. Now he’s back in Brooklyn looking for her. Becca isn’t going to let bygones be bygones and she has a three-date rule. Jax, however, isn’t willing to let Becca go a second time.

Review: Risk of Exposure by Emmy Curtis

Can I just reiterate how much I love this series! I still have like two books to catch up on but still, they've been winners so far!

Release Date: May 3, 2016

He is a trained professional—but nothing can prepare him for the hottest mission of his life. Assigned to protect his boss’s daughter, British former SAS operative Malone Garrett breaks the first rule of covert surveillance—don’t make contact. And especially don’t take your mark out to dinner, then agree to a rooftop quickie. But now that Mal has Abby in his arms, he has no intention of ever letting her go.

Abby Baston told herself it was a hit and quit, a one-nighter with a hot, handsome stranger whose hands were trained to take action. Working undercover for the CIA, she can’t risk anything more. But when an international crisis ignites, Abby must make a call: trust Mal with her secret—and her heart—and partner up, or lose everything in a split second

What sounds so simple is usually the most complicated! Basically Malone Garrett has been assigned to COVERTLY protect his boss’s daughter but instead he makes contact, takes her to dinner and then things get physical and way more complicated because Abby isn’t who she seems and isn’t interested in more than a one and done with Mal but when a situation turns deadly she has to choose whether to trust Mal to help her or not.

Release Week Blast: Brazen Titles

Wow, can you believe it's already May? How's the weather holding up where you're from? Here it's hot, dry and sticky. Not at all fun really. But you know what's really fun? New books! Brazen always has some hot stuff coming out and this month is no exception. Personally, I LOVE Sara Jane Stone's Sin City SEALs series and I especially love Megan Erickson's Gamers series. Have you read them yet? I guarantee there's something you'll like about Brazen titles!

Waiting on Wednesday: Pirate!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: Pirate by Eve Langlais.
I’ve read two books in her Cyborg series (The rest are on my brand new Goodreads shelf: Throwback Thursday Review Wishlist) and loved them because they’re different to what I usually read and now I want to branch out and try Pirate because a space pirate??? YES PLEASE! Sci-Fi and Fantasy romance are two sub-genres I haven’t begun to explore and I really want to!

Review: The Untamed Earl by Valerie Bowman

Today the latest book in the Playful Brides series is out! Who wants a little Taming of the Shrew with their romance? This isn't exactly a retelling, more like an inspired by tale and it's pretty darn amusing!

Format: .mobi (A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. )
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Release Date: May 3, 2016

Lady Alexandra Hobbs, the daughter of the Duke of Huntley, has intended to marry Lord Owen Monroe since she first glimpsed him from the window of her bedchamber, back when she was just a girl. But the duke has already chosen Alex’s infamously spoiled elder sister, Lavinia, for Owen. And now there’s no turning back.

Owen has spent most of his bachelor years drinking, gambling, and skirt-chasing. He won’t see another pound from his parents, however, until he’s engaged to Lavinia. Desperate, he accepts an offer from her innocent and spirited―and absolutely beautiful―sister Alex: She will
turn him into a perfectly tamed suitor, and show him how to woo the shrew. But when Alex’s true motives come to light, will their bargain lead to recriminations―or to a romance that defies everyone’s expectations?

Drawing inspiration from The Taming of the Shrew, The Untamed Earl tells the story of Lady Alexandra Hobbs, daughter of the Duke of Huntley. Lady Alexandra has always wanted to marry Lord Owen Monroe since she first met him as a girl. Unfortunately, her father has already decided that Alex’s spoiled older sister Lavinia will be Lord Owen’s bride. Meanwhile, in an effort to stop their son’s wild ways, Lord Owen’s parents cut him off financially until he becomes engaged to Lavinia, who seems to rebuff him at every turn. Desperate he turns to Alex for help winning the temperamental Lavinia over. Alex’s help has an ulterior motive though and when the truth comes out it’s anyone’s guess which sister Lord Owen will end up with.

Tuesday Jams: Wasted Time

Brazen Babe Reviews have this awesome meme called Tuesday Jams where you share a song that you currently love and can't get out of your head (Or in my case, off "repeat" on my iPod). Everyone's welcome to join in, the more the merrier! Be sure to leave your link on their blog post so that others can stop by and see your selection!

So, the one other thing I love just as much as reading? Listening to music! Though the majority of my music is modern country or movie scores, I do listen to a little bit of everything and am always on the look out for more music to add to my collection (You should see my iTunes library, it's HUGE). That's why Tuesday Jams has just become one of my new favorite memes!

Can't get out of my head song(s) this week are:Wasted Time by Keith Urban.
Every once in awhile a song just reaches you on an emotional level that makes you just feel something so deep. When I first heard this song on the radio I thought “Wow, what a catchy tune” but when I really listened to the lyrics I just knew it was one of those songs that makes you pause your hectic, work oriented life and just think about what the best moments in your life were and will be and yeah, they’re the moments that are “wasted time” that really mean something. Not when you’re working, or running errands. It’s those moments where you’re truly unguarded and free. You know what I mean? And if you haven’t had those moments yet, then this song makes you feel like reaching for those moments.
