_About Sightseeing in Manhattan_

Hannah-Rae
On stage at a Magic Mike theme night with the music blaring and her hands trailing the oily, well-defined abs of another man is where Hannah-Rae realizes that maybe she isn’t as heartbroken about her cheating ex as she had first thought. She had known she needed to make some big decisions about life before flying out to NYC, she just hadn’t expected her heart would be calling all the shots.

Matt
He didn’t know why or how his passion for dance had come about. All he knew is that when he was on that stage throwing shapes down, he felt so alive in the moment that he almost forgot about the fact that his little sister was sick and there was absolutely nothing he could do about it. Almost.

When chance circumstances bring us together, will dancing bring us something more than either of us expected?

After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

*Each story is completely standalone.

This is a super cute story!

Hannah just moved to NY and is ready to change her life, stop being the shy girl that stayed behind and start living her life.

Matt is struggling to help his family and try to keep up with his love.

I really enjoyed this one! Is a nice fluffy story. Hannah and Matt come together beautifully, complementing each other and finding a way of making it work. We also het a few glimpses of the rest of the Madison 425 residents.

Sightseeing in Manhattan has just the right amount of drama, painful backstories and smiley moments to keep a good pace and the reader engaged in the story.

_Excerpt_
Copyright @ 2019 C. Lesbirel

Letting go with one of his hands, he slides his fingertips up my back and to the nape of my neck. Some of my hair tangles between his fingers and he squeezes gently, pulling me up toward him again to meet another waiting kiss.

He spins me back around and commands me to take hold of the wheel and not let go. I do as I’m told and cling to it, not even caring about the direction or thinking about anything other than how good his hands feel, now that they are both free to roam over my body. He traces them over my hips and spans my waist before tracing up to the curve of my breasts and cupping them each, over the top of my cardigan.

“I like this, pink suits you,” he whispers softly into my ear.

“I guessed it was pink from the feel of it. It’s light and soft, like cotton candy.”

“It’s cute. Sometimes you look cute. I thought that when I picked you up. Now you don’t look cute, though.”

“I don’t? Then how do I look now?”

“Breath taking.” He says the word so easily that it sounds natural and believable. Even if I don’t believe it myself, he makes me feel like the most beautiful woman in the entire city.

My long waves blow free in the evening breeze and it’s eerily quiet with the noise of the city in the distant background. “Your curves are the sexiest thing I’ve ever laid eyes on,” he murmurs as his hands come to rest on my waist, pinching gently as though trying to control himself. I’m not sure I want him to.

About Accidentally in Love

























Arya 
I know I can make you blush. 
It’s a weird claim to fame, but a perk of my dream job: being the voice of your favorite romance audio books. Laughter, hijinks, adventure. Passion. Sweet heaven, the passion. It’s everything I could ever want. Except… 
The problem with this fabulous life? 
It’s all just fantasy. 


Picking between Chinese and Thai delivery doesn’t count as adventure. 
The bestie who always makes me laugh is thousands of miles away. 
As for the hunky hero? It’s not like he’s just going to come crashing into my apartment. 


Until the night a bearded stranger does exactly that… 



Gavin 
Do the job. Get the bad guy. Go home. 
Most importantly, don’t get involved. 
Those are the rules. The agency’s and mine. And they work. Even better, they give me the perfect excuse to keep my distance. 
The perfect escape from getting burned again. Except… 


Why can’t I stop watching her? 
I shouldn’t care more about what she’s doing than my target. 
I shouldn’t let her distract me from the job. 
And I sure as hell shouldn’t fantasize about a woman I’ll never meet. 


That is, until the night I surprise us both by kicking down her apartment door. Rules or no rules, it's true that... 


After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

*Each story is completely standalone.

This book was super cute! 
I mean, a hot guy who happens to be undercover? Yes, Please! 

Accidentally in Love is a funny and emotional in a perfect way. Both characters have trouble with their pasts and trusting isn't easy but they learn to trust each other, and to love themsleves while falling for the other.
The fact that Arya works voicing audio books, just add a little something to her taht makes any reader like! 


I was laughing more than once and I found myself tearing up while learning about Gavin past.
This is probably one of my favourite stories in the series. 


If you are up for a good weekend read, this is is definitively the book you want! 



Excerpt
Copyright @ 2019 Katy Ames


“Number one rule of tailing someone: don’t breathe so loud they can hear you five flights away.”
“Hey!” I say, thwacking his chest. “Don’t be a jerk. Besides, I don’t think you’re in the position to give spy tips right now.”
One bold eyebrow lifts in question.
Pushing out of his grasp, I whip the hat off my head, breathing in relief as cool air hits my skull. “Isn’t the number one rule of spying not to pick up a tail in the first place?”
The first eyebrow drops, followed by the other. Green eyes turn sharp, primitive, before brightening. A roar of laughter erupts from his chest. We stand there for who knows how long, me huffing and puffing, and Gavin laughing like I’ve just delivered the funniest one-liner he’s ever heard. When he stops, his chest is heaving as hard as mine. One last chuckle escapes when he clocks my annoyed expression.
“Oh, come on. You should be proud. It’s been forever since I laughed that hard. That alone should make up for giving yourself away. Besides, it was a good effort. For a first timer.”
“Ugh,” is the only answer that seems fitting. “When did you realize I was there?”
“Hmm,” he says, stroking his beard, his lips still twisted in a smirk. “Down in the alley. When you scraped that thing against the wall.” He points at the metal tip on the large umbrella.
“You heard that?”
“Hmm,” he repeats, head bobbing. “That and a lot more.” Gavin sweeps his eyes down my body, lingering on my boots before pivoting and heading down the hall.
“Wait, what else?” Keeping up is impossible, what with my thigh muscles screaming and pain scorching my foot. He slows his pace without glancing back, his strides shortening until I catch up.
Another step and another wince, and Gavin mutters something under his breath before lifting me off my feet. My own smirk turns to a shriek when he throws me over his shoulder and swats my butt before continuing down the hall.
“That was completely unnecessary.” My complaint lacks edge, which I blame on the view of his very fine ass.
“Quite the opposite, Ms. Winters. Consider it punishment for ignoring my warnings about staying away.”





About Katy Ames:



Katy Ames has spent most of her life on the East Coast and hopes to spend more of it in the UK, primarily so she can indulge in her serious plaid obsession. There isn’t a teenage drama or a period British TV show she hasn’t binge-watched at least twice. And she can be persuaded to do almost anything with the promise of bourbon, chocolate, or a nap (not necessarily in that order).


Katy is mom to a small human who has an obscene amount of energy and a blissful ability to ignore swear words, and wife to a man whose reading habits are far too serious. Katy and her family reside in Washington, D.C., a city she where never intended to live and loves so much she’d be happy to talk about it for hours. Just ask.

Deperate Measures - Review

7:39 PM 0 Comments
Desperate Measures (Wicked Villians #1) by Katee Robert

Desperate Measures (Wicked Villians #1) by Katee Robert


Published: May 28, 2019

Publisher: Trinkets and Tales

Genre: Erotic Romance

Couple: Jafar & Jasmine

My Savior… Or My Ruin?

One night, and my entire life went up in flames. All because of him. Jafar. As my world burned down around me, he offered me a choice. Walk away with nothing but my freedom… Or rise to his challenge and win my fortune back.

I bargained.

I lost.

Now Jafar owns me, and even as my mind rails against his rules, my body loves the punishments he deals out when I break them.

But a gilded cage is still a prison, I’ll do anything to obtain my freedom.

Even betray the man I’m falling for.



Welcome to a disney fan’s wicked fantasy.

I don’t know what to say about this haha this is one of those books that you never thought needed/wanted and then it’s ALL you can think about.

Desperates Measures bring us to an AU of Disney characters and it features the most remarkable villians in a city that is ruled by mobs and deals in every kind of pleasure.

If you read Katee’s O’Malleys series, this one is even darker and hoter.

Jasmine is the pretty princes, raised to be nothing more than a bargain chip and trophy of whoever manages to get. But this princess longs for freedom more than anyone.

Jafar comes from nothing, and he’s playing a slow game and ten steps ahead. The weak man he works for has no ambition, but when Jasmine’s hand is sold Jafar is willing to move everything faster and get the woman he’s been looking from afar.

Desperate Measures pays tribute to it’s tittle. It’s fast, unexpected and pulls you in tight.

What surprised me the most was Jafar. For someone that to most comes across as cold calculating bastard, he’s suprisingly gentle and caring. It’s the little details with Jasmine that lets you see how much he cares and likes her, itks the way in wich he can sense and feel what she needs that makes this evil villian be so likeable.

Jasmine is a great heroine! While she starts as a more fragile creature, new to the world around her she finds herself in this book, she learns about what she wants and what she likes, and she likes so much. And theough it all she becomes empowered.

To sum it up, Desperate Measures caters to your every need in a short roller coaster. There’s hot enough to melt an iceberg scenes, a heroine that can kick ass and a villian that is as sinful as they come.

With this book, Katee Robert also opens up a door to a universe that already has me waiting impatiently and exited about what is to come.

About Back For More

Summer in the city...

Kurt
She’s smart, hot, and funny. My dream girl.  There’s just one problem. She’s also my best bud’s little sister.  
The sparks have always been there, but law school had to come first. Now, we’re all back in the city and the same sparks fly every time I run into her.  
She needs a job and I need an assistant at the law firm. What could go wrong?
I don’t know if I can hide my feelings any longer.  
I know I shouldn’t go there, but I can’t help it.


Corina
My brother's back in town, and I offer to share my awesome apartment. Imagine my surprise when his best friend Kurt walks in.  
He’s still tall, dark, and handsome, and I can’t deny the pull.  
Working together only complicates things. Long days and nights in the office can be dangerous.  
When we’re not at the office, he’s always hanging around my apartment. To see my brother. Yeah, right.


All I know is, summer in the city is about to get a lot hotter.


After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

*Each story is completely standalone.



Back for More is super sweet short read!

Corina has had a crush on her brother best friend ever since she can remember. But she thought that was on the past, but now that her brother is back in town and crashing with her and Kurt is back in the picture she isn't so sure...

Kurt knows that looking at Corina is risking his friendship, but seeing her again and helping her finiding a job, with him, might just be too much for his self restrain.

I really enjoyed Back for More. I'm a big fan of the best friend's little sister trope and this one didn't disapoint! Corina's brothr is really overprotective and he starts suspectings ight away. Reading how both Kurt and Corina try to hide their feelings and protect their secret was very fun.

This book is funny and cute. Kurt is a really good guy and Corina was going through a hard time and he came to save the day. Honestly i was rooting for them all along and I found myself grinning along the story more than once!

It was really good to see more of Madison's people and see how everyone found their other half.

Excerpt
Copyright @ 2019 Sylvia Kane


“I’m here for Corina Davies in 1205,” I respond, my nerves rattling even louder than five minutes ago when I was seized with the instinct to see her.
“Is she expecting you?” he asks, resting his hand on the phone.
I shake my head. The guy must think I’m a weirdo for just showing up like this. He’s going to call her for sure.
Sure enough, he picks up the phone. “Ms. Davies, you have a visitor,” he says, and then looks back at me. “Your name?”
I almost turn around to walk back out into the night, but I stay rooted to the spot. “Kurt. Kurt Owens.”
“Kurt Owens. Thanks.” He turns to me again and nods. “Go ahead. Have a good evening.”
I head for the elevator, and my heart rate rises with each step. She’s gonna think I’m fucking nuts for showing up like this at midnight. And why am I doing this again? What do I hope to achieve by interrupting whatever relaxing activity she’s enjoying at this time of night? I don’t know, but the thought of seeing her makes my palms sweat. I remember that skirt she wore, and how soft her legs looked. My cock twitches at the memory of her silky-smooth legs. Fuck. Down, boy. We’re not here for that.
I step into the elevator and before I know it, I’m standing in front of her door, my hand in the air. What am I going to tell her? What’s my excuse for showing up here so late? At the very least, I have to admit it to myself—I just want to see her. I have to see her. There’s no denying the spark that flew between us the other night. All those years hadn’t done a damn thing to kill our chemistry.
It sure is ballsy to just show up here. Maybe I’ve had a bit much to drink, but I’m not drunk. I’m not slurring or falling over myself. She won’t notice.
Finally, I knock. She’s expecting me, because she opens up right away. Seeing her knocks the wind out of me. Her hair rests over her shoulders in this sexy, yet natural way; she has a hint of makeup, but not much. She doesn’t need any. She’s still a natural beauty, just like she was all those years ago.
A light pink, silk robe clings to her body and ends just above the knees. She ties up the belt, very tight, as if afraid it might slip off any minute. Or that I might see what’s underneath. I try to push the thought from my head.
“Hi,” I say, hoping I don’t look as awkward as I feel. I’m standing in her doorway, without any good reason whatsoever, like a doofus. She’d be perfectly justified in turning me away with some excuse about going to sleep or whatever. But, she doesn’t.
She stands back to let me in.
“Hi, Kurt.”
I love the way my name sounds on her lips. Her lush, rosy lips. So smooth and kissable.
