Reese and Julia have never liked each other. From the moment they met, they clashed. She thinks he’s a man-whore, and he believes she’s an entitled bitch with her head always stuck in a book. One night, one argument, too many drinks, and those views change. Instead of being annoyed by her, Reese just wants to fuck her—and one time is never enough.

After just passing high school, and failing college, Julia is trying to pass classes at night courses, but she’s failing that, too. Coming from a family of high achievers, she hasn’t found her place in the world. But one night with Reese and her ordered world comes to a halt.

Their “sex dates” turn into something more as they share themselves and what they care about, and Reese comes to realize that Julia is the woman of his dreams. He’s willing to fight to take her as his own, but can she trust him with her heart and not just her body?

I really enjoyed this short book.

The only thing that could’ve made this book better was if it was longer. As usual, Sam Crescent almost set the pages on fire with this steamy not quite enemies to lovers romance. Reese and Julia were charming characters who had some misunderstandings to overcome in their relationship. They were more afraid to love than anything so it took a while to trust each other with their real feelings.

Sam Crescent delivered a sweet romance that flew by way too soon for this satisfied reader. I adored Reese and Julia. Their slow burn romance was wonderfully described to pull me into the story. I was more than happy at their happy ever after ending. I am already looking forward to the next Curvy Women Wanted book.

Caleb Pole has sworn off women. After his completely selfish wife, who wanted nothing to do with his ranch or their daughter, divorced him, he truly believes there is no woman out there for him. But his little girl is getting older, and he can’t keep relying on his mother. There’s only one solution … a nanny.

After her fiancé left her at the alter in favor of her sister, Madeline Lennox has sworn off men and romance. The books are all lies. There is no man out there for her. Still, working at the Pole Ranch as a nanny is a dream come true. She adores the little girl, and of course, Caleb looks like one of the heroes has stepped right out of the books she loves so much.

The chemistry between her and Caleb is intense, but neither of them expect to fall in love. Nor do they expect to plan a future with both of them in the starring roles.

It’s time for Caleb to prove to Maddie—and himself—that not only does love exist, but he’s her leading man.

This is the second book in The Nannies series by the fabulous as ever Sam Crescent.

I really enjoyed the heartwarming part of this plot. I loved Maddie and couldn’t have been any happier that she found a new family and home with Caleb and his daughter Paige. That was the sweetest aspect of what was a sexy as sin romance. Sam Crescent always creates the most alpha male heroes and she didn’t let me down with Caleb. He was awesome and stood by Maddie the whole way concerning her really nasty sister. I always love the way Sam Crescent is able to pull me into her stories and get me so invested in the characters. In my mind I’m watching it all unfold and cheering my favorite characters on instead of just reading along with a story.

This book was a pleasure to read because of the great characters, sweet romance, and the scorching sex. The story flowed by with ease and had me wishing for more, and as usual, there was a happy ever after epilogue for Maddie and Caleb and their family. I would recommend this lovely short romance to anyone.

He’s never been a good man…

Hope Miller has been through a lot. After being trapped in a basement, witnessing her mother’s murder by her father, then being shot, too, before her father killed himself, she’s not the most normal girl. But she has a plan—she’ll graduate high school, move out of town, and leave the memories behind. Part of this plan means tutoring other students, which brings her to the Carsons’ home.

Beast Carson has tortured, maimed, and killed, all in the name of business. But seeing the curvy woman in his library, he’s instantly intrigued. She’s his nephew’s tutor, and way too young for him. Determined to give Hope a new life, Beast promises her a future that she can’t say no to. There’s no denying they want each other, and when Hope asks him to teach her, he can’t refuse.

Lessons soon turn into something more, and Hope knows she can’t walk away from this man, even though her plans say otherwise. But Beast holds a secret that could tear Hope away from him. When she learns the truth will she stay? He’s her Beast, and he’ll fight to keep what’s his.

I enjoyed this steamy romance from Sam Crescent.

The author did such a wonderful job on the characters in this one. Beast Carson was a force to be reckoned with but he fell for Hope right from the beginning. He knew all about her painful past, and the secret part he had unwittingly played, yet he was hopelessly drawn to the much younger woman. Hope was so much more than she seemed at first. She was sassy and brave. I do believe that Hope might be my favorite Sam Crescent heroine yet.

This book had a strong plot that engaged this reader with the characters and all that they had withstood. The story had a liquid pace and the other central characters, Caleb and Dwayne, were enigmatic. I was very intrigued by Caleb and can’t wait to read his book.

I would read anything that Sam Crescent writes but this book really was one of her best.

Natalie Pritchard doesn’t want to come between the men of Chaos Bleeds. So when Slash and Butler both try to compete for her, she’s not having any of it, and steps away from them.

Slash is pissed. He’s wanted Natalie from the first moment he saw her, and he knows that Butler only wants her because he can’t have someone else. There’s no way Slash is going to lose the only woman he’s ever loved, especially when he’s not even gotten her yet.

When Natalie goes on a date with an old friend, Slash is tempted to follow her, but decides against it. When they get a call to say Natalie’s been badly beaten, Slash knows he’s wasted enough time. He should have been there.

Waking up to see Slash there, Natalie is brought back to the first time she saw him, how he made her heart flutter, and the crush that thrived before her father died.

Will Slash finally be able to woo his woman, and to have the family he’s been craving? Will they get their happily ever after?

I really enjoyed this amazing book!

Sam Crescent returned to her exciting Chaos Bleeds MC with a great tenth book in this series. As usual, this was a great read. As for the plot it was intriguing and captured my interest right away. In the beginning there was some tension between Slash and Butler over Natalie. Slash was always going to claim Natalie as his own woman though. I thought he was patient and very sweet about it. Until Natalie got hurt and then alpha Slash came out to take charge.

As usual with this author I loved the strong vibrant characters. She gave them a personality of their own which helps to immerse the reader in the story. The pace was a bit slower than I would have liked but Natalie was hesitant to cause problems between Slash and Butler. I loved that Devil was so protective of Natalie like a father figure, perhaps. Lastly, I liked that not all hope was lost for Butler either.

Natalie’s Choice is another great book from Sam Crescent.

Rafe Shawl needs a wife. In order to inherit his father’s company, he has to be married, and the moment he bumps into Ellis Johnson, spilling coffee down her, he knows she’s the perfect woman for the job.

Covered in coffee, Ellis knows there’s no way she’s going to get the job that she’d been about to be interviewed for—but the guy who’d just done the damage is offering to pay her a million dollars just to have coffee with him. She can’t refuse, especially when she realizes his offer is legit—one coffee and then becoming his wife.

Ellis sees no other alternative, so she agrees to be his wife, and help him win back his father’s company. Five years, that’s all she has to do. Five years, pretending to be in love with him.

But five years will never be enough when she’s really fallen in love with him.

But what will happen when she finds out that he lied to her? Not only does she have to give him five years, but he also needs an heir…

This almost Cinderella story caught my attention right away. This is the ninth book in the amazing Curvy Women series from Sam Crescent.

Rafe and Ellis were incredibly rich and vibrant characters. Their paths crossed through a chance meeting, and it was like fate throwing them together. I thought that was so romantic. It was true that their relationship started out as a business arrangement, but the author made it clear that Rafe wasn’t just using Ellis to fulfill his father’s last wishes. He hoped that their mutual attraction would lead to a real relationship. That was exactly what happened in this sweet slow burning romance. There was a bit of drama with Rafe’s mother and a big secret that Rafe withheld from Ellis.

I always enjoy this author’s books. I especially enjoyed this one. The story was short but very well written with engaging characters and a story that was captivating. I am looking forward to the next book in the Curvy Women series soon.

Wynter Griffin has finally found her independence after years of being controlled by her parents. The only problem with her newfound peace? Her partying, rock music listening neighbor. She’s at the end of her patience, and demands that he packs up the noise, or she’s calling the police.

But what will happen when her parents demand she grow up, and do as she’s told? What will Wynter choose? Can two people so different find happiness together?

This was a great book !

Sam Crescent always delivers a solid story with loads of romance, hot sex, and excitement. I loved Zane and Wynter. Sparks flew from the first moment they met. Zane was the noisy neighbor next door so Wynter had to confront him about his partying ways. I loved their instant connection. What I really liked was Zane and how slowly he built the relationship from friends to lovers and then on to the real thing. It was sweet and really it was how they could overcome all the doubts that seemed to pop up from everyone.

This was a sweet and sexy romance. The characters were great. Zane and Wynter grabbed my attention and my emotions. Sam Crescent never fails to deliver vibrant characters and amazing stories and that is what keeps me coming back to this author time and again.

I enjoyed this book and look forward to many more books from Sam Crescent.

He’ll do anything to keep her safe…

The last thing that wedding planner Ava Charleston ever dreamed that she would do was run for her life, but here she is, running away from a pair of murderers and back toward a home she hadn’t been to in years.

Stone Mayhew is the president of the Silver Devils, a one percenter motorcycle club, so when a brother receives a call from his cousin Ava begging for help, Stone is one of the first ones there to help his friend.

The moment Stone meets Ava he knows that she is it for him, just like his daddy had told him would happen one day. Stone knows that he will do whatever it takes in order to ensure that Ava remains safe, but he doesn’t realize it will have to happen the second that they arrive back at the Club.

Misunderstandings lead to more danger, and that sends them all to chasing down trouble through the bayous of Louisiana. But once he finds Ava, Stone vows never to let her go again.

This book was a very good start to a new series.

It was love at first sight for Ava and Stone. I absolutely loved the instant connection between these two characters. They couldn’t have been more opposite–Stone was a total Alpha Male and Ava was a good girl–but the chemistry between them was super charged. The romance and sex scenes were great but that wasn’t all this story had going for it. Trouble followed Ava back to Louisiana so that added bit of suspense helped to keep the story lively, as well. Lastly, I loved the intriguing characters and gritty biker world of this new series. It has me eagerly waiting for the next book.

The author caught my attention with this story. I can’t wait for the next book in the Silver Devils MC series.

Hannah Martin has always tried to mind her own business in life. She picks up double shifts at the local diner to make ends meet while she saves money for college. She’s tired but happy, that is, until Adam Atwood claws back into her life. He bullied and tormented her relentlessly throughout high school, and their most recent encounter at the diner is no different.

But when Adam violently kidnaps her, Hannah discovers not everyone or everything is as it seems.

Wolf shifter Adam Atwood had been forced to turn on his former best friend for no other reason than she was human and that wasn’t acceptable to his pack. Even though it bothered him, he knew he had to protect her. When he finally discovers who she truly is to him, he’s horrified by what he’s done. Can Hannah forgive and forget? Or is it too little, too late?

I love discovering new to me authors who know how to deliver a great story.

Matilda Janes easily pulled me into the intriguing paranormal world of her Deliverance Pack. Adam was a perfect picture of a hero in this story. He protected Hannah from his crazy father but in the process he broke her heart and pushed her away. Then he realized that she was his true mate which put her in danger once again. This story had a lively flow with a few extremely climactic moments as Adam and Hannah were on the run with a crazed Pack close on their trail. Their only hope was to make it to the sanctuary territory of the Deliverance Pack.

The author did a super good job on the story building for this series by introducing quite a few promising characters who grabbed my attention. I liked that the series will be featuring other types of shifters along with the wolves. They are all special forces trained which is usually intense and super hot.

I am very excited about this new shifter series. I can’t wait for the next book.

He’s craved her for a long time, and now he’s going to have her.

From the first moment Chip saw Kasey, he knew without a doubt he wanted her. He didn’t even know her name, but she was going to belong to him. Now he is ready to claim her, but one of his club brothers seems determined to claim her for himself as well.

Chip will not lose this fight. Kasey’s his, and he’s going to prove to the nurse that he’s the guy for her.

Knowing the Trojans MC through her work at the hospital, Kasey doesn’t think much of the bouquets of flowers, figuring they were a friendly gift. But when Chip asks her out on a date, she realizes it’s more. Her attraction to Chip surprises her. She’s never seen herself with a club man, but with every second she spends with him, she can’t imagine a life without him.

The Trojans MC are in danger, and the threat they face could completely kill the entire club. No one will back down, nor will they allow Duke, their Prez, to fight their battle alone. Can Kasey handle the pressure of being a Trojan’s woman? Will Chip survive to prove his love?

Crave is the eighth book in the Trojans MC series by Sam Crescent. It’s a good biker story with great characters who immediately caught my attention.

I love this biker series that always has something gritty and exciting happening in every book. Kasey is a friend of the club who finds herself being courted by two of the club members. There was a lot of self reflection, light humor, and hot sexy moments. Personally, I never thought there was any contest between Chip and Pie. Chip was so intense and take charge that man could’ve had any woman he wanted. He wanted Kasey and so the minute Pie made his move it was game over. Chip wasn’t taking any chances on losing the woman he had chosen for his Old Lady. I like a man who can take charge. Kasey only liked Pie as a friend anyway, but she did have a few doubts about the club lifestyle. A lot of other situations were happening, as well. The club was still having trouble with the Abelli mafia and Duke has finally had enough so war seemed imminent.

Sam Crescent’s writing was excellent on this fast paced story. The plot was complex and very well developed thanks to the rich back story involved in this series. The characters were amazing as usual. This book was a great addition to the Trojans MC series. Now, I cannot wait for Pie to meet his match soon.

The moment Jack sees her curvy figure and blonde hair, he knows he wants her. Everyone has a price, he just needs to find out what hers is.

Rachel is completely broke and been out of a job for a long time. She’s nearly homeless when Jack propositions her. Being one of the richest men in the world, he’s used to snapping his fingers and getting what he wants—Rachel knows what he wants. He wants sex, and all kinds of dirty things. How can she deny him? She’s broke. Being whatever Jack wants is the only option.

Jack wants everything. Her company, her body, her heart, her soul, but first, he’ll settle for her stripping for him. He loves watching a woman undress and all he wants is to see Rachel’s lush body revealed to him. But what happens when Jack makes it clear he wants more than just a stripper and a fuck? He wants forever—Rachel as his wife, and to put his baby inside her.

From stripping to sex, can it end in love?

His Personal Stripper was another fantastic book by Sam Crescent.

This time around the author outdid herself by going with a sizzling hot but sweet at the same time plot for the seventh entry into her Curvy Women Wanted Series. Jack knew what he wanted from the first time he saw Rachel so he wasted no time in propositioning the down on her luck curvy woman. At first, I didn’t know what to make of his character following Rachel all over town and then offering her a deal she couldn’t afford to pass up. It wasn’t long in this fast paced story that the author brought out the feelings and showed me that he was a good guy. I loved how he protected Rachel. Now, I loved Rachel from the very beginning. Life had been rough on her. She was strong but not hardened by her adversities.

Excellent writing, romance, sex and rich characters. I look forward to more Curvy Women books in the hopefully near future.
