I loved the latest from SC Daiko! Luke and Gabe are in a committed relationship, raising two little boys and are in need of a new nanny when theirs puts her notice in, enter Eleri the woman that they interview for the position. What most people don't know is that Gabe and Luke are bi-sexual and enjoy adding a woman into the mix, but their relationship is the cornerstone. The instant attraction between the three is off the charts, but all three are denying what they want for fear of what would happen after. Luke and Gabe are smoking hot together, but when you add Eleri to their bed the outcome is unexpected for them all. When feelings evolve they will have to get over their fears to get the relationship that may not be the norm but is unlike anything they could have ever dreamed of. I loved these characters and their story was just perfect.
I absolutely loved Slow Burn from Roxie Noir! When Ruby changed her life by divorcing her husband and returning home to her ultra religious, conservative family little did she realize how much her life would be controlled again by her father, a Senator and head of the household. When letters are received and she is not allowed to read them, she's too delicate, her father hires ex-Secret Service Agent Gabriel. Gabe thinks this job is going to put him back on track to his Secret Service life after he makes a big mistake that becomes public, but what he didn't count on was the instant attraction to his charge and how bizarre the whole situation would be. Their story is perfect for their situation, but is a rough road and both will have to decide what they are willing to sacrifice to find the happiness the deserve. With Ruby's controlling family, their strong beliefs and the stalker out to make her life dangerous and scary they will have a lot of hurdles to jump in the process.
I loved Hot Rod from Holly Jaymes! A model who society puts in the plus size category meets a billionaire former race car driver and now out to make a breakthrough in luxury sports cars. When Chloe gets the call from her manager that she has been asked for specifically as the model for a to be revealed sports car at first she balks, until she has her video "interview" with Roderick Blackmore, Rod. Rod is drawn to Chloe in ways he hasn't since his late wife, but has a lot to remember about being with a real woman and not just an instant gratification that he's used to. I loved Chloe's self assured attitude, being comfortable in her own skin and Rid is thrown for a loop when he realizes his feelings for her
A good quick read from Kate Kent. Sam's life is full of struggle between the problems at her store, loosing her husband and raising her children on her own, so when a new jewelry store moves in next door she knows the struggle isn't going to end.

Sam and Harve are perfect for each other, both understanding the challenges of being a single parent and balancing work, but they will have their work cut out for them when the truth of what Harve does for a living comes out.
I loved this book from Lauren Landish! I loved Mindy in Anaconda and am so glad she got her own book. When Mindy's mom calls and tells her that she's getting married the following week and tells Mindy to bring the fiance Harold she has told her family so much about Mindy finds herself in need of a fake fiance. Enter Oliver, thanks to a debt to Gavin, who will play her fiance and Mindy lays down the rules which Oliver vows to break. The week spent with her family has them both wondering if what started as fake will stay that way. Oliver is cocky, hilarious and sweet. Mindy is brash, hilarious and a family pleaser to the core. Add in Mindy's hilarious family, Gavin and Brianna making their appearances and an incident with her mom's dog digging in their bedrooms garbage followed by a long walk with said dog and I couldn't put this book down.

This is a hot new read from Jade West! Carrie, Michael and Jack are a hot combination, but their beginning isn't easy. Carrie is on the cusp of becoming an adult in the eyes of the law and at her last appointment with Michael before she ages out of the system and is on her own, with a chip on her shoulder-with valid reasons-and a bad attitude towards those around her. Michael is the straight-laced one of this triad and takes his job to heart, wishing there was more to do for Carrie and feeling drawn to her in ways he knows are inappropriate and he beats those feelings down. On a night out with his friend, Jack, he talks about work and Carrie and has Jack worried about what his friend will do. Jack is the more polished of the friends and when he returns home from an overseas trip he finds the enigmatic Carrie in his house and his house a mess, thanks to her trying to help a crow and it being loose in his house. When Carrie pushes these two men to their limits they will claim her as theirs, even when they don't understand how it's so easy to share and feel no jealousy. I loved Carrie, she is a young woman who has been through so much and felt so unwanted for so long that she shelters herself from everyone, until Michael and Jack prove to her they know what she needs, discipline, and they will be there at her lowest and love her through everything. As for Jack and Michael they are the perfect combination of sweet, strong and dirty.
I loved the latest from Leslie North and her brothers of the Wildhorse Ranch! When Charlie Wild, the famous quarterback, meets Dylan Rose the flirting between the two is off the charts, until his playboy ways slap Dylan in the face and she returns to reality very quickly after meeting him. When Charlie is injured and winds up back in Lockhart Bend, on the Wildhorse Ranch and under the care of a Dr. Dylan Rose he is looking for reasons to leave and get back to football. That is until his doctor walks in and it's none other than the woman who walked away from him before the game when he got hurt. The two will push each other to the limits and yet in the end will find more than they ever imagined when they give in to what they feel. Charlie is cocky, used to getting what he wants and lives up to his playboy ways, until he finds something worth more than football. Dylan is strong, sure and just the level of feisty to keep Charlie on his toes, yet will be in his corner even when she doesn't always agree with him, unless he puts his health in jeopardy.
I enjoyed the latest from Autumn Avery. When Tammy Rose and Derek cross paths for the first time both of their lives will be forever changed, but neither know the extent of it just yet. Tammy works as a waitress at a diner and is in the process of being accosted by a drunk guy when the hottest guy steps in to save her, that guy being none other than Derek O'Toole, the star lineman from the Ohio Bulls. Derek is used to the instant gratification that comes from being who he is, but Tammy makes him work for it. One night of incredible is all they have when life forces them in different directions and it takes two years and a bunch of misunderstandings for them to find their way back together and getting the happy ending they both want to find with the other. Derek starts off as foot in mouth and cocky, but quickly wants to change in order to be what Tammy deserves and Tammy is the opposite of gold digger that Derek deserves as well.
I loved the latest from Tia Siren! Luke Turner needs a wife to inherit his late father's company and money. When his friend, and publicist, and his friend's sister help him come up with a plan and find the perfect girl it falls to Luke to sell himself to the young, naive Paige Scott. Paige is a freshman at NYU and will be a challenge for Luke. While she may be young, fresh off the farm and from a small town, Paige knows what she wants and won't settle for less. Paige gets blinded at times by the flash that is Luke, but I love that in the end she valued herself more and forced Luke to take a long hard look on the inside and decide what matters the most.
