@TheSpencerRyan exudes confidence,
I mean, have you seen him???
His dark good looks and tattooed muscled perfection are too much.
He's hot. Lickably hot.
And he has a way with words that leaves me breathless.
But cocky doesn't even cover it,
this guy is so arrogant you have to fight back.
But God he's so lickable!
The thing is though,
he looks like sex but he'll taste like

“Spencer Ryan is not a man you fall in love with. He’s a man who can rock your world for as long as you can resist the urge to stab him. And when the urge finally gets too much, you walk away before you get yourself a criminal record.”

When half of our lives seem to be spent interacting with others online, it comes as no surprise that there would eventually come a book about a modern-day romance stemming from social media. But do not be mistaken, this is not your mother’s kind of roma

It started out great, but now her behavior makes absolutely no sense to me.

First came lust at first sight. Then, a little friendly crush stalking. But once she got to know him and discovered she hated his true personality, that's where it lost me. One minute she hates him with a passion and the next second she's turning around having cyber sex on Twitter with him. She sees him flirting with chicks on Twitter so she sends him a naked picture??? She claimed to be completely turned off by h

Come and stop by my blog for the review and GIVEAWAY and Interview for my first blogiversary and Blog Tour Giveaway with Kerry Heavens

I was so excited to enter the blog tour with review for Spencer. The first two books from Kerry; Just Human and Still Human were great so I couldn’t wait for next book from her. Kerry Heavens is one of my favorite authors, she’s just great! :)

Spencer did not disappoint. The book is great. I could fan girl scream all day and night about this one xD

I really enjoyed this story. It was just hilarious :) Thank you You.Can.Call.Me.QueenB for reminding me that this book was on my TBR-List.

This was my first book by this author and I wanted to know something about her, so I visited her website and there I found a description.

Sparkle, kink and all things ink. That's what Kerry Heavens is made of. Writing smutty, sometimes funny romance, with a touch of kink. Real characters and best friends you wish you had. A little ink thrown in here and there.

I enjoyed everything about "Spencer." it really was an entertaining and refreshing story. If you are looking for something that is a bit different, I would highly recommend this book. It was well worth the read.

The main man of this story was Spencer Ryan, a Twitter whore who spent the majority of his spare time with his fingers glued to his phone, cha

Awesome Angst

Spencer was the kind of guy who viewed himself like....I love me you should too kind of guy and hold on let me take a selfie. Spencer loved himself but it was funny you could laugh at his self loving behavior but not everyone thought his behavior funny you could say he got right up Jazz'z nose or he rubbed her up the wrong way.

Frustrating, hot, humorous, dramatic, fun, current and redeeming.

Spenser was all these things with a great plot and characters, I loved it even though ive no

Oh to be internet famous!

I have to admit this is not my generation in which one feels it's ok for one's entire life to be practically laid out for the public to see via social media. No, I'm not a complete Luddite as here I am blogging after all and I do FB, IG and Twitter, with limits (lotsa them) but in this day and age, while I don't fully understand it, I get that this is ok to be one's thing, I think...

Well, slap me in the ass and call me Princess!! I was not expecting to be so absolutely engrossed and floored by this book. The way these characters come crashing together is so contemporary, sexy, and so so hot!! I love the banter between them. It is hilarious!! Love the social media interactions. Love the fact that this is set in the UK and the English isn't corrected to make it American. (But I'm an untravelled American when it comes to that, so what do I know, LOL) Love that the BFFs play su ...more

This started off really well, but somewhere along the line I found myself getting irritated and my mind completely wandering.

I hate to DNF a book, it's not a decision I take lightly, but if its not doing it for me by half way through what's a girl to do. :(

I suppose this one just wasn't for me. I didn't like hero or heroine. I didn't like story. Writing was okay, but it didn't work for me.
So I decided that I will not try any more with this one.

3.5 Shoegirl stars

In this modern age, people connect more frequently through electronic devices, and Spencer and Jazz are no different. Jazz has a job she likes, except for a boss that treats her like a sexual object. She's willing to put up with it to an extent, even though she does everything to discourage him, until that one day he goes too far. Her best friend, Mags, has been bugging her about opening her own business, she tak

I liked that this story didn't fall under the whole, asshole turnt knight in shining armour story. It was definitely a taste that my palate has apparently been craving and I didn't even know it. Refreshing, to say the least. Kerry Heavens loaded this book with laughter, sarcasm, wit, and hot tweets. I found this relatable because this is our society today. Most everyone is on social media and most everyone knows their neighbor's business, and even strangers' business the

Let me start off by asking, Where in the world have I been that I didn't know about Kerry Heavens and her fantastic stories? Seriously!!
This story had everything that I love. A feisty heroine that knows how to stand up for herself. A cocky, arrogant hero, who you know secretly has a soft side. And let's not forget about the best friends. They're just as important. They can help make or break a story.
Jazz is stuck. She likes her job. She knows she's good at it. She just doesn't like her

A light funny and sexy read.

One of my favorite places to read about is the UK, so more than often when romances and the odd mystery are set in the UK with hot hunks, then I read them. Kerry Heavens captured me with her series title Not Your Average British Romance. She had me hooked at British Romance. The other thing I loved once I started reading it was that the two main characters have a twitter romance building up throughout the novel and then with the Cinderella Story twist that only one of them knows who the other is ...more

I loved the Twitter plot point. It was genius! I do wish that the author would've included pics to go with the Twitter posts!!!!

There are a lot of funny one liners, some seriously hot chemistry, and the sexual banter was freaking hilarious.

Oh, and, I love Mag, the BFF.

I'm usually one that either hates or loves characters, and I rarely waver after forming my opinion. Spencer and Jazz kept me on my toes... Hating one of em one minute and laughing my ass off at em the next. They were a match mad

What can I tell you about this book to convince you of its amazingness?

If you read Kerry Heaven's debut book Just Human you will know how the wonder of Facebook kick starts or rather rekindles the romance of Danny and Liv. In Spencer it is the wonder of Twitter. You know that moment when someone - could be an author, could be a TV star, could be a footballer, favourites or replies to your tweet and you are over the moon happy? That is the squee moment for Jazz. (For the record Adam Levine has re

I hate it when I like a book but always there are some things that I don't and they manage to take away the fun for me.
Ok, I am not a twitter person, I much more prefer stuff like Facebook so it took me a while to get into it, I would get confused with so many handles at once.

I know people have phone sex, or twitter sex in this case, but so much of it in a continuous manner had me skimming those parts throughout the book. First of all I don't like reading about sex all that much, it BO
This was an easy to read, romantic, funny and smutty story that was just what I was hoping for.

The first half reminded me of You've got Mail, but instead of email, Spencer and Jazz were flirting via Twitter. Just like in the film, only one of them knows the person they're flirting with in real life and virtually is the same person. I thought that was a really original twist on that set up, and the short and flirty messages were witty and lively and made this one hard to put down.

I finally broke down and read this book after reading the fabulous reviews by the girls over at Dirty Laundry Review (@dirtylndryrview). And oh holy cow! What a ride it was. From start to finish, I was completely engrossed. Not a dry moment. It kept my attention throughout. I didn't want it to stop. Lord have mercy, it was so good!

As the blurb has suggested, a lot of the encounters between Jazz and Spencer occur online via twitter and I could totally relate to Jazz. I understood her giddiness wh
