The perfect wedding night!

Amber is a sexual adventurer. But at the wedding of two of her fuck buddies, she feels a little down. She cheers herself up with a quickie against a wall with one of the ushers, but when she’s caught in the act by her best friend’s handsome but uptight brother Scott – she gets a real taste for mischief.

Amber knows he wants her – and she tempts him into sexual explorations beyond his wildest dreams. But then Scott turns the tables, demanding something of her that’s way beyond her comfort zone. Something that frightens her. Amber likes being tied up… but can she be tied down?


Review

Every page is scorching hot!

What's better than watching a video? Reading a book, duh! The imagination is better than any simulation produced by people who thought they knew what they were doing. 

Amber had 'fuck buddies', but as soon as they got married, she was left by herself like the third wheel that she'd always been. She was lonely and quite depressed, so she turned to sex yet again.

Things changed when Scott finally decided he couldn't take watching Amber screw people around anymore. He wanted to be the man by her side, or in other places ;)

Amber wasn't used to being treated with respect, like a person should be treated. She shied away from Scott because she was afraid that he didn't feel the same way. Scott, on the other hand, was gentle and kinky at the same time. Isn't that just sexy? :)

As hot as this book was, it was also romantic. The marriage of sex and romance definitely made this an enjoyable read. Even though there wasn't enough character development for all the characters, the relationship development made up for it :) I think it's worth the read...

Blurb:

When millionaire bad boy, Will Thornton, tries to buy computer-geek Kate Kelly’s building out from under her, she refuses to sell. Will might be uber rich, and super successful but she won’t be bullied. Trouble is, she didn’t expect Will to look like one of her fantasy heroes, or to make her heart beat a little too fast. She’s prepared to wait him out, but it'll take every ounce of her self-control to win this game.

With millions of dollars on the line, Will is positive he can make Kate sell. He’s played the game better than anybody and charming is his middle name. Problem is, the snarky, geeky, computer-wiz is nothing like he imagined—impossibly cute and a match for him in every way.

The game is on but can two such radically different people come out winners in the game of seduction?


Review

Too Cute!! Towards the end of this book, I realized the characters were named Will and Kate like the royal couple!!

Will was the honorable millionaire who was not prepared for the charming computer geek that was Kate. They were absolutely adorable together!

"Brotherly is far from how I feel about you, Kate. Brotherly is far from how I was going to behave just now. I was going to kiss you. You know that, don't you? Running away won't make a difference. The kiss is coming, Kate. It's just a question of when."

"Will, you're making me uncomfortable."

"Yes, but in a good way, Kate."

Will was hot and that's an understatement. He was aware of his charms and effect on women, but he wasn't the playboy that people thought he was. He had such a big heart. He was good with children and he cared a lot about his family and his employees. He was honest and ethical when it came to his business, and a damn good lover when it comes to his personal life ;)

Kate was the true definition of a geek. She was so cute through Will's eyes. She was as geeky as it could get. She had Meg as her "bestest friend", who was quirky all on her own. How they even became friends was still unbelievable. Meg was out there and dressed in corsets and incredibly short skirts. Kate loved living in geeky graphic tees and jeans. Did I mention she wore such thick geeky glasses? Fortunately, Will loved all of it :)

One thing about this book was it was quite predictable when it was making its way to the climax of the book. I just knew almost everything that would happen, in no certain order. Still, the actual story was so cute and so thoughtful. I love men who performs the big gesture to prove himself :)

Overall, this book was so light and absolutely enjoyable! Go get it!

Blurb:

Playing it safe never felt so risky...

Erin Watters is her small town's resident wild child--she doesn't do boring, and after having her heart annihilated, she definitely doesn't do relationships. Her friends have other ideas, though, and when they throw down a matchmaking challenge, impulsive Erin can't ignore it. Even when the annoyingly hot Troy Streiber accepts the matchmaker role...

As a rescue paramedic, Troy's used to watching out for people. Never mind the bet he made with his buddy to play Erin's wingman. But the more time he spends with the sexy, charismatic woman, the more he discovers a side of her she doesn't let many see. Soon what started as an innocent game of matchmaking has them both thinking about the person right under their nose. But Troy's a play-it-safe guy, and he won't let a woman who lives for risk ever steal his heart.


Review

She's irresistible, and he's too safe.

Erin and Troy were so good together. This book was light yet hot. The attraction was undeniable, yet they couldn't do anything about it. They were the opposite of one another. Wait, wasn't there a saying that... I don't know.. opposites attract? ;)

Troy was the hottest man in Cascade from Erin's point of view. The man was practically a sinfully good-looking god. Not only was he hot, he was also family-oriented and he was very sweet. That was definitely unexpected. Most men these days wouldn't be caught being sweet, nor would they be caught attending a tea party hosted by their niece. Have I mentioned adorable?!!

Erin, on the other hand, loved adventure. She didn't use to be like that. When she had her heart broken by a past boyfriend, she figured that she needed a destruction. What better way than to do extreme adventure? First stop: sky diving.

This book was just so darn cute! The tension between the characters and the reaction of people around them were priceless. Especially because they were so oblivious to their own chemistry.

She got to Troy's place a few minutes later and parked on the street behind his car. Good. He was home. She marched up to his front door before she thought better of it and hightailed it home. Because as much as she needed to say this to him, seeing his handsome face always proved to unnerve her.

He didn't answer the doorbell so she knocked. Or rather, pounded.

"I'm coming. I'm coming." she heard through the door.

It opened wide a second later and standing before her was a body unfair to every other male on the planet. She took in Troy, naked, except for a low-slung towel around his waist. Water dripped from his hair onto his shoulder. A bead trickled down and over his smooth, muscled pec. The droplet drifted left along a ridge of abdominal muscle, then right, and disappeared into his belly button. A smattering of hair trailed down from there, disappearing under the towel.
She was stuck on the serious bumps and grooves, the defined V at his hips, until a deep masculine ahem reminded her she was gawking right there in front of him.

Shit.

I also enjoyed the fact that Troy was so down-to-earth and he wasn't comfortable at all about the attention he was getting from the women of Cascade! That would explain his aversion to grocery shopping ;)

Erin: "You do know you're a major topic of conversation with the single girls of Cascade."
Troy: "I did not know that."
Erin: "That bothers you?"
Troy: "It does."
Erin: "I could spread a rumor that your gay."
Troy: "And have all the single guys of Cascade talking about me?"
Erin: "A few of them probably already are."
Troy: "I am pretty likable."
Erin: "I wouldn't know."
Troy: "Aaannd that's my cue. I'll let you know about Friday. Good night."

I was lucky enough to get a short interview with both Erin and Troy. If you haven't read the book, you might to wait before reading the following interview :) If you've read the book, enjoy!!

Character Interview


1. How's the grocery shopping, Troy? Any improvement now that you're engaged?

[laughs] It's a lot better actually. Word travels fast in Cascade, so now that Erin and I are together I haven't had to fend off any unwanted advances. Although the other day there were a couple of older ladies who thought it amusing to follow around behind me and giggle. I'm not really sure what that was about.

[Erin chuckles] I might have mentioned something about your butt recently. 

2. Are you two living together now? If so, where?

Troy: [laces his fingers with Erin's] We're not officially living together yet, but I am at Erin's place more often than not. I still like to be around for my niece and sister, so you can find me at home, too. 

Erin: His family is super great and Amelia's invited me to several tea parties. [she grins]

3. What kind of extreme adventure have you two been in so far, if any?

Troy: We just got back from an awesome trip actually. We spent a few days river rafting down the Colorado River, just the two of us. 

Erin: It was fantastic. [she leans her head on Troy's shoulder] We slept cuddled up under the stars along the banks of the river and fell asleep listening to the sound of rushing water, then watched the sun rise every morning. 

4. We know that Troy's fave is cinnamon crumble cake. What about you, Erin?

I'm all about the muffins, although I do love crumb cake, too.

Troy: Especially off my plate. [his teasing voice has Erin smiling]

5. How's Frito doing? I can't believe you named him after a chip! 

[they both sit up taller] Troy and Erin simultaneously: He's great. 

Erin: He's super smart and such a love bug. 

Troy: He can't get enough of Erin and follows her around everywhere. 

Erin: I especially love when he falls asleep curled up next to me. 

Troy: I love falling asleep next to you, too.


Aren't they just the cutest ever?!!! Go ahead, take a moment, and then click that link at the top and buy this book :)

Blurb:

Hockey star Ben Kelly has retreated to his mountain cabin in the ski town of Cascade, BC, to recuperate from a season-ending knee injury and contemplate his future in the NHL. He never expects to run into the one woman who got away. Nine years may have passed, but nothing has dulled the explosive chemistry between them. Now he wants more than just one night.

Hailey Eriksson had Olympic-sized dreams until an accidental pregnancy from a one-night stand halted her ambitions. Her life was shattered when her son died. Nothing will keep her from fulfilling her promise to him to make the Olympic team, especially not the charming Ben Kelly. Unfortunately, he’s out of sweep her off her feet this time, and she finds him harder and harder to resist with each passionate kiss. But when he learns about the child he never knew, will their rekindled romance be on thin ice?

Review

With undeniable chemistry and a painful secret, Crista McHugh scores yet another masterpiece!

Ben Kelly was one vulnerable man. He was hiding from his injury, but when it came to Hailey, he was willing to come out and face his fears. It took a bit of coaxing, but because he was so determined, Ben was able to impress Hailey and perform baby steps toward a speedy recovery.

Hailey couldn't deny the attraction with Ben. However, something happened in the past that made her feel spite against him. Fortunately for Ben, their stars were aligned and they couldn't stay away from each other. Forget about the past and the heartache and hardship Hailey went through; she needed to relive their first night together!

These two were hot and bothered even when Hailey was trying to keep Ben at arm's length. The misunderstanding caused sad memories. I was surprised Ben kept a level head almost the entire time. Even when he confronted the person who caused all the confusion, he didn't lose his cool. He really was the pacifist among his brothers ;)

I definitely recommend this series. If you are hesitant because the author is indie, I promise you will not be disappointed :)
