Blurb:
She may think otherwise...but what appears fake is actually very real.

I get off on disturbing the peace.

Screwing celebrities, jetting around the globe and thumbing my nose at Page 6. And every time I get drunk and photographed with some random harlot claiming she's pregnant with my lovechild, she gets the call.

The capable Charlene DeMonaco.

Clean it up, Charlie, I made a hot mess of things again. But you always have my back.

She's wicked smart, fierce an

Oh boy! I recognize this type of book. Basically, this book was a short story that might have been something for a blog post — weekly but ended up getting published, because no one likes coming back to an author’s blog to read a couple of chapters or catch it on a long newsletter format. And so, on Goodreads, this book has 3 parts (p1 is the girl’s, p2 is the boy’s and p3 is both, POV) and a single book available as well, with all parts included swiftly. Bait is par

I received a free copy of the box set Baked by Colleen Charles and this review was given freely.
Red Velvet Rapture begins the steamy story of baker Allegra, her Jealous and abusive ex the police officer Matthew, and the secretive alpha male firefighter Gabe. A fire starting in the bakery's oven catches Allegra in between two strong and controlling men and causes the closure of her newly opened business. Ironically, this section of the story ends in a cliff hanger where infertile Allegra

If book 1 is this good, I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series!

Charlie is amazing. She is strong and independent, a hard worker, and willing to do whatever it takes for something she believes strongly in.

Nolan is a playboy billionaire who is always getting himself into trouble, whether it be with women or his parents. He is tired of his playboy lifestyle and is making a concentrated effort to shape up and grow up. But he needs Charlie to do it.

There are a lot of emotions in t

Nolan and Charlie's story. Nolan's beyond rich, Charlie's seen poor... this is their love story.

So I really wanted to like this book, but it had one problem for me. The last revealed part of the plot. The piece where we discover something about Nolan, about what he knows about Charlie, and about their relationship from his perspective. I think we needed to know that much further up front. I couldn't understand why Nolan seemed to fall in love with Charlie so quickly. It made no sense to me, but

Superb

What can I say other than I gave Bait a 5 star rating for the unique romance about Charlie and Nolan. He has a real manwhore reputation, and she’s the new hire legal counsel for his business. There is plenty of sexual chemistry to light fires and such a unique twist or two that you won’t anticipate to the storyline. There’s plenty of angst, almost too much, but then the twists and turns came along and save the book from a downgrade. I can’t wait to read more of Colleen Charles smart and en

This is an emotional roller coaster ride of sizzling chemistry, emotional turmoil, angst, heartbreak, anger and frustration. Nolan and Charlie have a very rocky road to travel as twists, lies and Momzilla cause as much damage as possible. I liked these two together and how you could feel everything they were going through. A very entertaining and enjoyable read. This is my voluntary, honest review.

Will they Ever reach their HEA

After reading book 2 first, this book was so hard for me to love quite as much. That’s not to say it isn’t as good, it just gave me so many cringe moments. I hated the attitude of a couple of the integral characters, it was initially hard to take our man Nolan seriously, and I felt so horrible for Charlie. Did they get a HEA? You have to read it to see who gets happy and who gets what’s coming to them!

A tight band of brothers, each oozing sex appeal and rich in wealth. None of them see any of this coming until it's right in front of them, invading their hearts and minds. The woman are strong and capable, but vulnerable at the same time. These brothers don't stand a chance.

A wonderful series. You won't regret getting to know these guys and the woman who win their hearts.

This book seemed to go all over the place and was hard to follow in spots. It seems like it took place over a week I think? It is hard to tell and there is just to much tossed together to get a good read on the characters it seems like they jump around a lot and there is an attempt at a mystery that just leaves the reader confused it was not bad and I read it all but it was a hard read.

Love it

Really loved this book. Colleen has done it again. Strong female and male characters. Nolan banks is a playboy getting into trouble left right and centre. Charlie is part of his legal team. With ups and downs, office bullies that you want to scream at. Nolans mother is a piece of work and I wanted too shout at her too.

Great book

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The story line was good. I found it funny and dramatic at times. Charlie and Nolan's relationship was allowed to develop naturally. But the story left unanswered questions like who was embezzling the money? What happened with Callum? So many unanswered questions. But I still enjoyed the book.

This story keeps you on the ball. I can not keep track of what is real and what is pretend. But the ending caught me off guard. I am looking forward to reading book two.

Too much angst

Never have read a story that had so many break ups and fights and lies. Depressing and not worth the read.

Part 1
 OK I'm already laughing at the first paragraph. One of her inner thoughts.
 "I felt like I'd been stuffed into some synthetic prison featuring a sagging crotch and creased ankles"
I enjoyed reading Charlies inner voices she cracked me up. Nolan seems to have taken a fancy to Charlie. She has feelings for him that she is scared to let out, she still finds it weird he is in to her. At first I couldn't decide if he was just being charming or just using her, but he seems to care for her. Even i

These were each fairly short stories. Each one with a cliff hanger. My problem with short stories is that the next book spends so much time rehashing the last book. Thus a 300 page series is really a 200-240 page series.
This was an okay read. There were a lot of places where it drug a little. The out of control mother was also not very believable. If the father had never let the mother run his and his sons business before why would he suddenly change that and why wouldn't the son question it an

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

Another great book series, Easy story to get into hoping they end up together in the end.. I read part 1 as a bonus book at the end of Baked boxset. I was lucky to read Bait boxset so i didnt have to wait to be able to read the whole story in 1 go.

This was the first book by Colleen Charles that I have read and I will certainly be looking into her other works. I enjoyed her writing style and descriptive nature along with the development of the characters. I loved that Charlie was strong, determined, principled and not a quitter as I could relate to those qualities easily. Nolan while an "Alpha" was hot and demanding, but also had a vulnerable side that you don't often see in a Alpha male type book. I really enjoyed this story and the twist ...more

While he's not the most Alpha male I've ever read, Nolan was definitely a force to be reckoned with. When Charlie accepts a lawyer position in Nolan's company, she has no idea what she's signed up for. There is definitely some intrigue in the story, but the romance seemed a bit forced between Charlie and Nolan at times. I had a couple jaw-dropping moments and overall enjoyed the characters (except for Nolan's mother... What a witch!). Definitely excited to see what happens in Chase's story "Hook ...more

Two dimensional

Whilst not the worst I've read its not great.
Everyone is two dimensional and it reads in the same way. Despite there being many (two many if I'm honest) hurdles for them to cross the whole series reads flat.
I have no idea what motivates any of these characters, no idea what the connection between the two leads is, no understanding of the how or the why they attract each other.
Its just flat.. Emotionless and redundant. (In my opinion).

Bait was very refreshing. I enjoyed Bait from beginning to end. It also made me smile every time I read the last name Banks. Banks is a family name for me and to see it in a story...well let's just say it tickled my fancy. When I finished reading Bait, I was like... I want more. I wanted the story to continue on, I didn't want it to end there. I think everyone should give Bait a read. Oh and I know it is only a story, but I really didn't like Jasmine ( I think that the name ).

Up too late

This book had me up till 2am trying to figure out what was going to happen with Charlie and nolan. I really like how the author gave both points of view. All though you don't hear Nolan's until book 2 I also love how you share their wedding. It really makes happily ever after

I have read these books twice. From the first page to the last you can't put the book down. I loved that the first book was from her perspective and the second was from his but it Continued along the time line not from the beginning with the last book being from both perspectives. Loved the inner monologues as well as all the twists.

The first part of the story was really good however the following two not so much. The story lost its momentum, I didn't feel the chemistry between them. There was so my much back and forth that I lost interest. I started skimming through it.
