Marie's Review ~ Just One Night by Carly Phillips

Just One Night (The Kingston Family, #1)Just One Night by Carly Phillips
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

-Marie, ☆☆☆☆

This book was a great start for The Kingston family series!

Linc and Jordan have been best friends since they were kids. Social status and money never meant anything in their friendship. Linc’s family had the money and anything they desired and Jordan’s family didn’t. Jordan’s mom worked for the Kingston family and that’s how their friendship formed.

Neither of them ever wanted to cross that line and act on their true feelings because they were so important to one another. When Linc’s father died he depended on Jordan even more with the situations that his Dad hid.

Just One Night and everything changed. They became more and had to learn how to navigate a new relationship.

Release Blast ~ #REVIEW ~ Just One Night by Carly Phillips

Release Date: April 20

She’s the woman he can’t live without.

The one he can’t risk screwing up their relationship by sleeping with her.

Linc Kingston doesn’t accept anything less than perfection. Not in his billion-dollar business or in his personal life. He has it all. Except one thing. His personal assistant and best friend in his bed, moaning his name. No matter how much Linc wants her, she’s completely off-limits.

Jordan Greene grew up the daughter of the housekeeper at the Kingston estate, where she met and bonded with Linc at a young age, despite their economic differences. But no matter how close they are now or how much their attraction simmers beneath the surface, they’re still from two different worlds. Besides, Jordan isn’t about to risk losing her best friend for one sensual night.

Jordan might be the only woman who can handle Linc and his domineering, bossy attitude, but beneath that gruff exterior is a vulnerable man who, despite his wealth, has had a less-than-charmed life. And when Linc’s father dies, she’s there for him—unwavering in her friendship.

Until one night of passion and a positive pregnancy test changes everything.

Diane's Review ~ Quit Bein' Ugly by Lani Lynn Vale

Quit Bein' Ugly (The Southern Gentleman, #3)Quit Bein' Ugly by Lani Lynn Vale
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

description
All the warm and fuzzy love feels….

Croft and Carmichael’s bumpy road to romance was full of humour, steam and, of all things, injuries… He was her brother’s best friend. She was his best friend’s sister. They shared a love of CrossFit and a mutual attraction that barely had an opportunity to spark before it fizzled in misunderstanding. Six months on, the flame was still there and it was about to be re-lit…

There was never a dull moment as random acts of crime became violent and Croft and Carmichael bonded during recovery. Their interactions with each other, with their friends and family, were what makes life so fun and interesting. And sweet. Honest conversations meant clearing the air to let their relationship grow. Thank goodness! For professionals – he’s a lawyer, she a teacher – I wanted to grab them (gently of course) by their scruffs and shake them a bit. Talk people!

The drama was high, the laughter loud and the love so, so sweet. Insert swoony sigh right here…

Quit Bein’ Ugly

The Southern Gentleman Series Book 3
Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: April 20, 2021

 

 

About the Book

There’s a crush, and then there are the type of feelings that Croft Cruisie evokes from a person.

He’s everything that any straight woman would want: tall, handsome, charismatic, muscular, and sweet.

At least, Carmichael thought he was sweet, until he brings another woman to the gym she owns with her brother, on the night that’s to be their first date, and lets her know in a quick and painful, non-verbal way that her feelings are not reciprocated.

Fast forward six months, and she’s still trying to move on from the rejection.

It doesn’t help that the jerk moves in next door to her, and that she has to see him workout shirtless every single day.

How can a woman get over a silly crush when that silly crush won’t so much as give her room to breathe?

***

Croft doesn’t know what happened.

One day he was supposed to go on a date with the girl that wouldn’t leave his thoughts for even a second, and the next she’s avoiding him like the plague.

No matter how hard he tries—and admittedly, it isn’t all that hard due to the biggest case of his career taking over his life—he can’t get her to tell him what he did wrong. She refuses to give him a second chance.

At least, not until he’s nearly killed in front of the courthouse, that is.

The moment he sees his chance, he pounces. Or, more literally, he limps.

But the limping is what draws Carmichael in. The Southern charm that was instilled in him since birth will be what gets her to stay.

That’s his plan, anyway.

Funny thing about plans… they never seem to work out how you expect them to.

LORD HAVE MERCY: The Southern Gentleman Series, Book 2

Poor judgment: knowing better yet doing it anyway.

 

Flint Stone is a professional in every way.

 

He’s a police officer with the K-9 unit and works at Gun Barrel High as the school resource officer. In his spare time, he’s working his heart out to create a successful gym from the ground up.

 

He’s loved by every single person he ever encounters—student, faculty, and employees—Everyone but Camryn Elvis Presley.

 

The only thing they have in common is their mothers’ poor excuses for names.

Period. The end.

 

So why is it every time she crosses his path that he has the urge to mess up her perfectly curled hair? Or unbutton a few of her prim and proper buttons?

 

He knows he should stay away, yet like the high schoolers he’s around every day, he has no choice but to react first and think about the consequences later.

 

Side note—bad decisions are made, leading to lapses in judgment that threaten both of their jobs. Yet when the time comes, neither one can seem to find the wherewithal to care. Why? Because being bad feels so good.

Axel
As alpha of the pack and CEO of a growing tech company, I have a lot on my plate. I don’t have time for distractions.
What I need is someone who can manage my schedule or at least answer the damn phone correctly. Someone reliable and efficient, someone who will make my job a hell of a lot easier.
What I don’t need is a complication like Holly. When my sister brought her in for the job, she seemed like the perfect candidate— maybe even over qualified. I hired her on the spot. That was a mistake.
Now all I can think about is taking my new PA and bending her over my desk— making her mine.
