This one features Grady (Kerry's brother) and Annabelle, the girl he grew up next to. Fast forward a few years and Annabelle is back in town, divorced, in debt, and living with her mother. Grady's striking out on his own, so he finds Annabelle as his replacement for crew chief. Come to find out, Grady and Annabelle both had feelings for each other back in the day and there's nothing stopping them now.
This was a super fast read and had good banter and characters I liked. There were some sexy scenes, and not too much drama. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Audra North is definitely on my radar for authors to watch out for now.

I've read a couple of Blackwood's New Adult titles, and they were alright. Despite the weird title, I was excited to check out Landing the Air Marshal since it's a Brazen title and features as sexy AF air marshal. Can't say I've ever read one of those--but I'm totally game!
After basically hooking up with Gage, the charismatic guy in the seat next to her on her flight to NYC, Abby invites him to spend one night together--no strings attached. A hot as hell night leaves both of them wishing for more, and when a snowstorm prevents them from flying out the next day, they get exactly that. Will it be enough?
Landing the Air Marshal has likable characters, fun banter, and sexy times that are crazy hot. I liked the idea for this story and breezed through it in just a couple of hours. Gage was totally hot with all the dirty talk and sexiness everywhere. He brought out the best in Abby. I wanted more at the end for sure, and I'll definitely be checking out the next book in this fun series.
Ah, Harper and Dex are just. so. hot! That alone is enough for you to drop everything and read now. But in case that's not enough, I'll giv4-1/2 stars
Ah, Harper and Dex are just. so. hot! That alone is enough for you to drop everything and read now. But in case that's not enough, I'll give a little more.
The summary is spot on here. Curvy Harper is being dissed by her brother when sexy rugby star Dex overhears it, and despite the fact that Dex has sworn off women to focus on the game, he can't help but ask Harper out to show her douchebag brother up. What starts out as a point to prove quickly becomes more as sparks are flying and Harper and Dex can't keep their hands off each other.
Playing It Cool is absolutely refreshing with little drama, basically zero angst, and a couple you'll be rooting for from the very beginning. They had great banter and steamy chemistry. Andrews surprised me with the hotness of the sexytimes and how much I cared about both Dex and Harper. I can't wait to see them in the future books of this series.
If you love hot af rugby players and the likable girls they fall for, you can't miss out on Playing It Cool.

I have started writing this review a thousand times, only to just delete everything and start all over. Because it's so amazing, I know my words won't be good enough to describe it. Roni Loren has quickly become one of my favorite authors, and Loving You Easy reminds me of just why.
The characters here are well-developed and so sexy. Cora is very relatable and Hayes and Ren are smoking hot. Hayes just blew me away with all his sexiness. And Ren? Damn. They were all amazing--individually and as a group. Fast-paced and intense, this book takes you on a ride that has unexpected twists and turns as well as the joy of falling in love. Like I said, I can barely string my thoughts together, but what I can say is if you love ménage stories, Loving You Easyhas to be at the top of your list.

Gah! This series just gets better and better!
Total badass tattoo artist Lia is saved by Reid when her car breaks down on the side of the road. Neither of them are looking for a commitment, so a one-night, hot-as-hell romp is exactly what they needed. When the light of day breaks, they're reluctant to let go but both know the score. Imagine Lia's surprise later when Reid shows up at her job with her forgotten bracelet in hand--and the fact that he's Harper's brother. Will these two find love when Lia is definitely not looking for it and Reid doesn't think he deserves it?
I don't even know how to describe how much I loved this book. Ever since reading The Strongest Steel, which I loved, I wondered about Harper's brother, Reid, and boy did Cole deliver! And though I was surprised she ended up with Reid, I really liked Lia in the other books in the series, too. The chemistry between Lia and Reid is palpable from their very first look. They're sexy and passionate and the perfect complement to each other. They're passionate and sweet at times and just so hot.
There's a lot of drama in this book, but it makes for a page-turning experience that I didn't want to end. You can definitely enjoy this as a standalone, but I can't recommend this entire series enough. I loved seeing the other couples and feel like Harper's story comes full circle here. Beautiful and fast-paced, The Darkest Link has all the feels, great characters with chemistry, and an amazing story that all romance fans should check out.
I liked Game On more than I liked Betting On Both, the first ménage story by Sheryl Nantus that I read.

In Game On, Angela goes back to her hometown to find that she's still got feelings for her college and high school boyfriends. She can't choose between the two of them and why should she when she can have both?
Yeah, that pretty much sums it up. I liked the history of these characters and thought that, though it was unrealistic in my opinion for them to enter a ménage relationship, I was glad they got to, ahem, reconnect. This one was a bit steamier than the other, but still pretty standard. I just feel like if you're going to write a ménage story, go for it. Make it so hot we can't even stand it.
Game On didn't have that. If you like ménage stories, go ahead and check out Game On by Sheryl Nantus. You might like it.
I like a good ménage story as much as the next girl, so when I saw these books by Sheryl Nantus, I had to jump on them. I was especially e2-1/2 stars.
I like a good ménage story as much as the next girl, so when I saw these books by Sheryl Nantus, I had to jump on them. I was especially excited about this one since it's set in New Orleans. Betting On Both features hotel heiress Kat who falls for her hot bodyguard, Cole, and the manager of the NOLA hotel she's got to turn around, the sexy musician, Julian.
This book is pretty standard as far as ménage stories go. I think one major difference is it's Kat who chooses to enter the relationship, rather than the two guys already being partners and bringing on a woman to whet their appetites. I really liked Cole and thought he was swoonworthy and hot. Julian was alright, but really, if Kat had just wanted to be with Cole, I would have been fine with that.
The sex wasn't as steamy as it could have been. Like I said, it's pretty standard. There were words that are definitely way overused, and I don't feel like this romance stands out in any way, other than what I've already mentioned. The setting of the story made me happy, and I'll definitely check out other books by Nantus.
NGL, I'm sorry to see this series end. I've loved all of the books in Kendra Leigh Castle's Harvest Cove series. While A Little More Love3-1/2 stars.
NGL, I'm sorry to see this series end. I've loved all of the books in Kendra Leigh Castle's Harvest Cove series. While A Little More Love isn't my favorite of the series, it definitely gives me those small town romance butterflies and swoony feelings.
Kira Andersen is in town for her brother, Seth's, wedding (the couple from Every Little Kiss--yay!!) and while she's there, she's planning on following up on a lead in her quest to uncover the identity of popular author Malcolm Ray. Unbeknownst to her, he's none other than Henry Fitzroy, aka Fitz, her brother's friend. Of course, sparks fly between them immediately when he picks her up at the airport, and they just can't help themselves. Will she find out Fitz's alter ego? Will he allow himself to fall for her when he knows her time in Harvest Cove is limited?
Once again, Castle transports us to a picturesque town in New England. Her descriptions were spot on and made me feel like I definitely wouldn't mind visiting Harvest Cove. I thought that Fitz and Kira had good chemistry, and I loved seeing all the couples from the other books in the series. I really liked Fitz a lot--he was the perfect combination of geeky nerd and leading guy. He was adorable. Kira was alright, but my reaction to her shouldn't surprise anyone ;) I did find it kind of weird that Kira didn't know about Fitz, since her brother's best friends with him.
A Little More Love by Kendra Leigh Castle is sweet and swoony and perfect for fans of small town romances.
