How can someone so smokin’ hot be so bad in bed? I mean, Sean Cassidy is absolute rubbish. RUBBISH. He is the epitome of walking, talking false advertising and I want a refund! Plus he’s an arsehole. So… what is wrong with me that I can’t stop thinking about him?

The Pixie and the Player is a full-length, romantic comedy novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the second book in the Rugby Series.

THE PIXIE
Lucy Fitzpatrick doesn’t like rugby.

As the little sister of Ireland’s most infamous rugby player, Lucy can’t seem to escape the championship-sized shadow cast by her big brother, or her mother’s frequent attempts to micromanage her future. Her rainbow hair is as free-spirited as her quest for inner peace, yet overbearing expectations keep bringing her down. And when she’s down, her compulsive little problem lands her in seriously big trouble.

THE PLAYER
Sean Cassidy is a cold-hearted brute… or so he’s been told. Frequently. By everyone.

His blonde locks, baby blues, and rock hard bod make ladies the world over drool with desire. As the rugby world’s second most infamous player, he should be basking in his success. But Sean has never been content settling for second place, and his frequent confrontations with Lucy’s big brother leave him cold. And when he’s cold, his compulsive little problem lands him in the lap of Lucy Fitzpatrick.

THE PLAN
Sean has a problem only Lucy can solve. Lucy has a problem only Sean can fix. The solution seems obvious: you scratch my back, and I’ll bail you out of jail. But when their business arrangement unexpectedly leaves Sean scorching hot and Lucy on the precipice of inner peace, can they convince the world—and Lucy’s big brother in particular—that this is the real deal?

Either way, both the Player and the Pixie are about to teach each other some pretty monumental lessons about family, life, but most importantly, love.

REVIEW:

4 of 5 stars ****

I never thought I could end up liking Sean Cassidy, but I do now.

This story was cute, a little too predictable, but cute. I love Cosway’s and Reid’s writing and together they make incredibly funny stories. Different from what they do independently but funny and witty nonetheless.

I really liked that they changed my perspective from Sean, I hated him in the previous book. And I also loved how vulnerable he was, and how he went changing overtime and because with Lucy.

I wished we could have seen Lucy and her mother’s relationship being solved, in the book and not just in the end of the book, that would have been great. But as it was, I feel it was a funny story, not my favorite of these authors, but lovely all the same.

Now, patiently waiting for the next book in the series! 😀

P.S I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.

Release Blitz + Giveaway: Shameless by Lex Martin

It’s finally here! Check it out! Review to come soon 🙂

 

Title: Shameless
Author: Lex Martin
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: April 26, 2016

 

Blurb

Brady…

What the hell do I know about raising a baby? Nothing. Not a goddamn thing. Yet here I am, the sole guardian of my niece. I’d be lost if it weren’t for Katherine, the beautiful girl who seems to have all the answers. Katherine, who’s slowly finding her way into my cynical heart.

I keep reminding myself that I can’t fall for someone when we don’t have a future. But telling myself this lie and believing it are two different things.

Katherine…

When Brady shows up on a Harley, looking like an avenging angel—six feet, three inches of chiseled muscle, eyes the color of wild sage, and sun-kissed skin emblazoned with tattoos—I’m not sure if I should fall at his feet or run like hell. Because if I tell him what happened the night his family died, he might hate me. What I don’t count on are the nights we spend together trying to forget the heartache that brought us here. I promise him it won’t mean anything, that I won’t fall in love.

I shouldn’t make promises I can’t keep.

Falling for Damon…to shine or guard her heart @LHCosway

05.16.16

 Damon Atwood was Hollywood’s golden boy. Having won an Oscar at the tender age of thirteen, he had the life many could only dream about. But his success came at a price, and after a short but fruitful film career, he chose to live a life of obscurity on a remote Scottish island. Almost a decade later he’s finally ready to make his return, starting with a lead role in a musical on London’s West End.

As a choreographer’s assistant, Rose Taylor has always faded into the background. She watches shows come to life from the side lines, but has never craved the attention of stardom. When rumours begin circulating of Damon’s involvement in her latest gig, she doesn’t predict how she will be thrust into the limelight, nor how the mysterious and strangely introverted man will need her to teach him how to be a star again.

Rose knows that show crushes don’t last. Actors fall for each other during the intensity of a production, often losing themselves in their roles. These kinds of affairs burn bright and then they fade. The question is, should Rose let herself shine with Damon, or guard her heart from being broken after the final curtain call?

ARC Review: Sweet Love (The Sweet Series) by K.C. Lynn

Hey Guys! I know it’s been a while and I sincerely apologize for it. I’ve move to the other side of the country, have a new job and just got internet an hour ago. I know this review was long due but I couldn’t get internet to do it and I’m terribly sorry for it. So here’s my review, I hope it’s not too late!

Title: Sweet Love (The Sweet Series

Release Date: March 24, 2016

TBR Link: Goodreads

Author: KC Lynn

SWEET LOVE COVER

Synopsis

Two cups of a protective, dirty talkin’ alpha who loves his Cupcake.

One tablespoon of a sweet southern baker who loves her Sexy Sawyer, even when he’s being a hothead.

A slice of the past that shows up on their doorstep, turning their world upside down with a life- altering plea.

A dash of passion.

A pinch of heartache.

A sprinkle of hope.

Mix together in a large bowl, creating a difficult choice, a testing of one’s faith, and a man who will do anything to protect his family—even if it means accepting a decision that could result in losing the one he loves most.

Bake at 350° for a rich serving of life with a love that could withstand anything. Even the unthinkable.

A timeless recipe that is sure to fill your heart with a generous helping of sweet love.

***

This is a longer length novella that follows Sawyer and Grace’s journey after Sweet

Temptation, book two in the Men of Honor series. It is told in dual POV, has an HEA, and no

cliffhanger. Sweet Temptation should be read prior to this novella. It is recommended to read the other books in both the Men of Honor series and the Acts of Honor series as all the characters play recurring roles. However it’s not necessary.

Warning: Due to mature subject matter, such as explicit sexual situations and coarse language, this story is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.

My Review: 3.5 stars!

Well I love Grace and Sexy Sawyer the first time and this time was no different.

The book was short, and the story sweet and dramatic. I was glad we got to see more of Grace’s family life, things that should have been approach in the first book and were hanging around in my mind. But I must honestly say that I don’t think another story about them was necessary.

I did not want more drama to Grace’s life and so I was really scared to read this, thinking something bad could happen, it didn’t. But still, there just wasn’t enough story for a second book. Or maybe it’s that I wanted more from them and all the gang? And btw, I loved seeing all of them together again, with the kids and their love as a family.

And even though I don’t think another book was necessary… I liked it so much! 🙂

P.S. I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
