Review: Misadventures of a Backup Bride

Misadventures of a Backup Bride Misadventures of a Backup Bride by Shayla Black
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*I was gifted this ARC from the author and freely give my review*

Carson hires a bride to convince the man giving him a loan that he’s not a match for his daughter. What he didn’t expect is falling in love with his hired bride.

I love the plot in this book, it’s intriguing and sweet. The relationship building between Ella and Carson is moving quickly forward but it suits the story. One of the things I especially liked was that there wasn’t any hasty jealousy drama, it was lots of communication although not perfect. But that’s how it’s in real life.

The writing style is easygoing and fun with a lot of feelings. The author manages to drag me in to the story and I feel connected to them.
No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings and a good amount of dialogues makes this a very good read.

There’s many very good love scenes that is written with a lot of feelings even before the characters declare their love.

Great read! 5 stars from me.

A cat and a wolf.......the last book in this series and it was good as gold. Tessa and Mark are different but they fit together perfectly.

I think this was a fun, hot and awesome story. Well written characters and good storyline. No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings and lots of dialogues.

After being a non reader of shifter stories I'm now officially hooked.

If you're not familiar with this genre I recommend this series as one of the great ones to start with.

Played By The Master

Jaqueline is trying to help her sisters lousy husband out of concern for her sister. In order to do that she has to get a opportunity to talk to Race who is the man that can help her brother-in-law. When she finally gets to talk to him she can’t resist him.

This was a good short story with some hot scenes. It’s a easy plot and the writing style is easy and straightforward which makes it a good and enjoyable read. If I should question one thing it’s the trust issues when it comes to the interaction between Jacqueline and Race, she trusts him to quickly in my opinion.

No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings and lots of dialogues is a good bonus.

The characters are well described but I think they could been even better with more feelings involved.

I recommend this for a light evening read if you look for something entertaining and hot.

4 stars 🌟

Three

This was a short intense story that don’t have a deeper meaning other then entertain. I don’t have much more to say than if you enjoy short dirty stories you will like this one.

4 stars🌟

The Office Slave

Volume 3 of the Red Hot Fantasies series

This was a great hot story however the end is a little unfulfilling for me. However if you like a steamy hot story with lots of sex this is for you.

Again this is a story that is made for entertainment only and for that purpose it’s perfect.

Personally I like a little more meat on the bone but it’s

4 stars 🌟

Review: Wolf Line

Wolf Line Wolf Line by Vivian Arend
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I liked this story very much, it had some fun parts, some hot parts and the storyline was good.

The writing style is easy with lots of dialogues so it's a enjoyable read.

The characters are well described with feelings and I get to know them some.

If I should complain about something it must be that it was to short.

But this author have the ability to drag me in to the story so I read and read and can't put it down.

Strong 4 star read.

Review: Bad Beat 1: A Bad Boy Billionaire Romance

Bad Beat 1: A Bad Boy Billionaire Romance Bad Beat 1: A Bad Boy Billionaire Romance by Agnes Diaz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

*I was gifted this ARC and freely give my review*

First of all; this is not a book, I don’t even know if I can call it a novella it’s so short. When that’s said: it was promising, had a storyline with much potential and characters that could be evolved in to great personalities.

The writing style is easy but a little jumpy at times, that made it a little hard to follow and get the story rolling smoothly.

Good amounts of dialogues and not unnecessary descriptions of surroundings makes it very good in my opinion when it comes to be clear and consistent in the telling of the story.

With some 200 pages more this could be a really great book, but because of the shortness and the other things mentioned I’m sorry to leave it with only 3 stars.
