«  Tu ne me résisteras pas.  »
Un businessman sans âme, doublé d’un séducteur adepte des conquêtes faciles  : voilà ce que pense Abby de Tanner King, son nouveau patron. Mais, surtout, il est si sexy qu’elle craint de ne plus être capable de faire preuve du professionnalisme sans faille qui fait sa réputation. Or, l’audace et l’insolence de Tanner à son égard ne laissent pl

Si al cliché en su máxima expresión le agregamos falta de contenido conseguimos el argumento de este libro.- Es corto por eso lo terminé de leer.-

The tough exterior of the alpha-hero, Tanner, in this book is expected for this genre. The vulnerability he can't show makes him swoon-worthy.

Abby also shows toughness and has to work through a bunch of family issues before she can find her happy place.

An emotional quick-fire hot read.

Diry Hearts - Liebe ohne Regeln ist wieder eins dieser Bücher, über die ich eher durch Zufall gestolpert bin und das (vor allem durch den sexy Kerl auf dem Cover) einen zweiten Blick wert war. Und weil mich dann auch noch der Klappentext neugierig gemacht hat, durfte das Buch bei mir einziehen. Nur ist das leider manchmal wirklich so, dass schöne Cover nicht so schöne Geschichten beherbergen...

Le défi du play-boy est ma dernière lecture des quatre premières sorties Magnétic et je crois que c’est celle qui m’a le plus ému tant le déroulement des événements et la situation m’ont troublée.

Certes, je vais me répéter, mais c’est important, ce livre n’est pas à classer parmi les inoubliables tant il cumule les clichés de la romance. Toutefois, je suis ravie de constater que ce texte est plus approfondi et reflète mieux les émotions que les précédents.

Sweet Thing by Nicola Marsh is part of the new Dare imprint from Harlequin and is a steamy and emotional tale of lust and love set with the backdrop of a decadent pastry shop.

Abby loves working at Le Miel, one of Sydney’s hottest french pastry shops. The daughter of a wealthy society family, she’d left her cold and emotionally abusive husband after nine months of marriage, been ostracized by her family, and set out to make her own way. She’d managed to get a job with Remy King, worked her way up

This book needs to come with a warning: Do not read if you are on a diet. Whether that be in terms of sex or food! Okay, so I'm joking–well, just a little!

It was seriously hot. Tanner is a tattooed, sexy AF, alpha male, and Abby is just gorgeous both inside and out. She's broken out of the tight/suffocating hold of her family to make a life for herself and Tanner comes along and turns her fine-tuned plans upside down. But in such a good way. They help one another see a better way of living, of

Hot. sexy read, with strong bad boys that have that softer side that only a strong female can drag it out, well worth a read.

Eccomi qui a recensire questo librettino preso in edicola questa estate, per capire com'è la nuova collana Harmony Privè.

Allora la trama mi ispirava molto: Abbey lascia il marito e la famiglia (una delle famiglie più ricche di Sydney) le volta le spalle. Così lei non si perde d'animo e segue il suo sogno: diventare chef pasticcere. Va a lavorare quindi per Remy, che purtoppo per un indicedente (una caviglia rotta) si fa sostiuire dal fratello Tunner, il classico catti

Après un léger accident sur son lieu de travail, Remy, le patron d’Abby, va devoir rester à l’hôpital pendant quelques temps. Pour le remplacer dans sa pâtisserie, il fait appel à son petit frère Tanner, un homme qui gravite dans le monde des affaires et dont la réputation à ce niveau n’est plus vraiment à faire. A ce moment-là, Abby ne sait pas grand chose de lui, sauf ce que Remy lui en a déjà dit, c’est à dire pas grand chose finalement.

This story is hot, steamy, moving and wow, truly when I picked this one up I didn’t want to put it down I loved the hero Tanner what a guy, sexy as, and so vulnerable and the heroine Abby has issues from her past that play havoc with her as well, can they together become one and will their one night stand lead to true love?

Abby is loving her life now working in the best patisserie in Sydney she has weathered the last year leaving her husband and being ignored by her parents, there has been some

Even though the whole chef thing has been done a million times before, I liked the fact that this DARE had a solid storyline that wasn’t completely based on sex. It was more realistic than other books in the line that force the sex scenario. I loved that Tanner wasn’t an arrogant jerk of an alpha male that sometime appear in series romance. Both characters were enjoyable...but I felt Tanner’s secret came out 30 pages too late. It was revealed a handful of pages before the end and up until that p ...more

La historia tenía futuro, pero que Abby se la pasará aventandose a Tanner cada que lo veía, fue con lo que no pude y arruinó todo. Además, la trama respecto a la vida de los personajes en ningún momento evolucionó.

pas mal bon d'accord c'est du déjà vu ça casse pas trois pattes à un canard mais on passe un bon moment et c'est la seule chose que je demandais
Pretty good. Liked that it was set in Australia, with bits of Aussie slang. Hot and fairly sweet, with a generous portion of man-angst.

Bought from eHarlequin sale.

Quand son patron finit à l'hôpital et que son jeune frère doit venir superviser le travail, Abby ne pense pas que ce soit une bonne idée car elle peut gérer seule la boulangerie. Ayant déjà plusieurs boîtes de nuit ouvertes, Tanner ne veut pas décevoir son frère mais sa rencontre avec Abby fait des étincelles.

Le troisième roman de la collection Magnetic que j'ai commencé et je dois bien avouer que ce roman remonte le niveau mais pas de beaucoup. Cette collection met rapidement

I'm intrigued by the new Harlequin Dare line of category romances, mainly because they're closer to the spice level I normally read, and so I decided to indulge in a Kindle bundle of four titles. Maybe five. I forget. But this was the first, and I still struggle with all the things that I usually struggle with in categories.

The story was definitely spicier than even the Blaze line was, which was a definite improvement for me, but it fell back on a lot of the traditional and problematic tropey st
