I was able to finished How to Seduce a Bad Boy by Traci Douglas. Well, this story was an adorable read. We have Melody Bryant who has been in love with her brother's best friend forever. However, Adam Foster is going to look after his best friend's little sister. Basically, Melody sets out to try to catch her Adam's attention with a makeover. Which works and so the story begins.
Of course, that's the over simplification of How to Seduce a Bad Boy. The first half is kind of too sweet for my taste. We are lacking the no you shouldn't be hanging out with the bad boy. Yes, they grew up as friends, because Adam is best friend's with her brother. There were times I had to put the book down, because it was too sweet. However, it wasn't until we got closer to the end that I did enjoy the story. Granted more drama appear and making it worth the time. I think the whole "oh no I shouldn't be with my bro's sister" became more real when her brother comes home. So, the story does pickup when the time table comes to the end.
Overall, it's a cute read. If you like stories that have behind closed doors love scenes this is your read. If you are a fan of best friend chasing friend's sister, hey you might like this one. It's a little slow at the beginning, and does progress about halfway through the story.

Let me say that I LOVED Dirty Little Secret! Honestly, I wasn't sure what I was going to find with Jennifer Ryan's latest book. All I knew was I liked her previous books, therefore I will like this one. Actually, I'm totally excited to see what Jennifer has in store for the rest of the series. Dirty Little Secret had me grasping for more.
I absolutely loved the characters. We had Noah and Annabelle Cordero who grew up with John Cordero. Both weren't his biological children, but he raised them as his own. Then there's Roxy Cordero who was John's actual biological child, but never recognized her as his own until after his death. John had his secrets, and they were reveled until after his death. They shook and rocked Noah, Annabelle, and Roxy's world. Now all three of them have to live with the terms of his will, which seriously pissed Noah off. Yes, Noah and Roxy had a rocky start. It was mainly Noah induced. However, Roxy is smart and knows what she needs to do to make sure the ranch is thriving. Eventually, they find the balance and understanding, but not the easiest with Roxy's past lurking in the background.
Anyway, Dirty Little Secret had me begging for more. I seriously can't wait for the next book. I love the story between Noah and Roxy. I love that she understood Annabelle's needs. An amazing story! Probably my top read for this year. I can't wait to see what Roxy's sisters have in store with the series. I hope the next story involves Sonya. Actually it doesn't matter which sister, I just need another story. Austin sounds like he's in need of desperate help. By the way I love how Jennifer gives a little tease of whats to come. It's subtle, but it's there. Anyway, LOVED Dirty Little Secret, and I can't wait to see what the other Wild Rose Ranch has in store.

As you can tell I have been dragging my feet about writing about Love, Sincerely, Yours. The beginning was a little rough. We have Peyton who works for Rome, and has a serious crush. I would expect the email to come from someone just out of college or is interning. The first half of the story was rough for me. However, when Peyton leaves her job, and gets to know Rome more on a business level, the story gets so much better. I didn't have to muddle through there anonymous emails. Actually she was anonymous. I'm not going to lie, the word banged me. There were other words, and Peyton used bang. Anyway, I digress.
Even though the story had a rough start me, I did start to enjoy the story. However, there were a few things that kind bothered me. There was a major thing that made the plot moved, but they never reveled the source of the issue. Or if it was so minor that I didn't notice it.
I liked Peyton. Even though her drunk email kind of annoyed me, but I liked that she was confident once she left working for Rome. The banter between the two of them did a get a lot more fun. Now Rome. He sounded like a douchebag at the beginning, and his friend Hunter didn't help his cause. However, I did like when Rome would be like, why are we even friends.
Overall, not a bad story. The story kind of reminded me of Sara Ney's How To Date A Douchebag which I have a lot of fun with those ones. I think Rome's best friend would be a fun one to follow. The thought of being with one girl would probably give him hives. On to the narrating which we have Alexander Cendese, and Ava Erickson. It's always hard to enjoy both narrators in a dual reading. It's possible, but hard. In dual readings you always have someone that outshines the other. In this case Ava Erickson definitely outshines in her sections. Her transition were spot on. However, her counterpart Alexander Cendese did all right. He wasn't the best, and the transition were a little rough. I didn't like his girl voice, he made Peyton sound like a valley girl. Did grow on me, but I much have rather listen to Ava Erickson read the whole story instead, even though it was written in a dual point of views.
