I finally got around to reading this and finished it in a day. I was so enthralled by this story that I kept getting mad when I had to do actual work at work. Don’t those jerks know I’m reading a COHO book? This book had me hooked from the beginning and from about the same moment my anxiety level was ramped up significantly. I was getting so angry and upset and then I’d swoon and feel a little better for a bit. Then I’d get angry and upset again. I freaking loved the roller coaster ride that this book was from beginning to end and then through the epilogue (grrr) and the epilogue to the epilogue.
Even when she doesn’t have someone edit the book and she’s just making things up as she goes along, Colleen Hoover knows how to write a dang book. Another must read by one of my favorite authors. ...more

They were great friends to BraWhen I first read Finley, I knew that I would have to read Devil’s Kiss. I absolutely loved Derek and Jordan in Finley. They were great friends to Brantley and Daniel and there was obvious tension between them that I needed an explanation for. Boy did Ella come through and write an amazing love story for the two completely opposite men. They brought out the best and worst in each other even when they weren’t together. The chemistry between them was electric, but their friendship was more than just the physical, even when they were pretending it was purely physical.
There is so much more to both Jordan and Derek. They couldn’t be more different, but they are exactly what they need in each other’s lives. Every scene with them together, even if they were just pushing each other’s buttons or fighting, were so amazing. Derek’s got a heartbreaking story and I totally understood the decisions he made, but I felt so bad for him. He needed someone to be there for him and Jordan was that person. It was so great to see their relationship bloom from teacher/student to friendship to something more over the span of 11 years.
I loved Finley, but I think that Devil’s Kiss was even better. The sex scenes were off the charts smoking hot, but they paled in comparison to the quiet moments that Jordan and Derek spent together. This book was so well written and so beautiful. Great job Ella Frank! I can’t wait to read the next Sunset Cove book. Perhaps Mr. Prescott will get a book next? No matter what’s next, I will definitely read it. Each book Ella writes gets better and better.

I didn’t realize that it was the fourth book in a series, but after reading it, I don’t think you need to read the prior books to know what is going on in this one. I will likely go back and read the first three books when I have time because I really liked the other Weston siblings.
I was a little frustrated with Ethan early on. Why was he the only one who couldn’t see that JJ had been in love with him for years? He didn’t have to see her as a sexy woman in order for him to see that. I love that JJ took what she wanted and took advantage of the situation they found themselves in, even if at times it hurt her. I also love that she knew she was worth more than what Ethan was offering. She was strong and independent and even though she loved him, she wasn’t going to settle for anything less.
I really enjoyed the way this book played out. The chemistry between Ethan and JJ was crazy. They were so hot together and it made me wish that Ethan could see that all clearer than he was. I swear if he said dependable and reliable one more time I was going to scream. I liked the rest of the cast of characters too which is why I’m going to eventually go back and read the rest of the series. This was a really enjoyable book. I also want to point out that the Australianisms in this book were not as difficult to follow as they have been for me in other books that take place in Australia.

I enjoyed the story for the most part. Chrissie and Dante were interesting characters and definitely had a ton of chemistry. There were little things here and there that kind of got on my nerves, like how often it was mentioned that Dante was a Seal or how often he called her honey. Sometimes those pulled me out of the story, but this was such a quick, easy read and there were so many super-hot scenes that I didn’t let those moments bother me.
I like that Chrissie and Dante knew what they wanted out of life. They knew how far they wanted to take their respective careers and they knew that distractions were dangerous. There was definitely chemistry there and the sex scenes were steamy. I would have liked a little more drama as far as the danger aspect of the story went. That was the whole reason for Dante to be around her and it ended too quickly for me.
This was the first book I’ve read by Sara Jane Stone and I plan on reading more. This is the third, and looks like final, book in this series. I did not read the other two books yet, but I do not feel like that inhibited my ability to enjoy this book.

Her books arI love reading Robin Bielman books because I always seem to fall in love, with the characters, the setting, the way the story progresses. Her books are always what I need when I read them. Falling for Her Bachelor was no exception. I adored Cassidy and Nick. Their chemistry is evident straight out of the gate even if Nick was only seeing Cassidy as his little sister’s best friend. I immediately connected to them both as individuals and as a couple. The minute they head out on their auction date the sparks started to fly.
I loved how Nick and Cassidy trusted in each other, not only when it came to intimacy, but also with the secrets of their past. My heart broke for both of them. What they had each gone through was terrible and I wanted to hug them both. It was great to watch them find a way to heal from the tragedies of their past and to find happiness and love in each other. Although there was a bump in the road, like there always is in romance novels, it was a necessary one and I enjoyed where the characters ended up from there.
I highly recommend this book and any of Robin’s books. They are well-written, fun and steamy romances that really just pull you into the story from beginning to end. I can’t wait to read her next book.
