Playing dirty in the boardroom just got a whole lot dirtier…. Billionaire Alexander Kazankov always wins. But he didn’t count on high-heeled, drop-dead sexy Lily Bennett getting in the way of his latest deal. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, not when he’s so close to making things right for his family. Lily may walk and talk like a Southern piece of fluff, but she’s been underestimated before. She’s determined to succeed—and no entitled, arrogant asshole, especially the too-gorgeous-for-his-own-good-kind, is going to get in her way. Oil meet water. Gasoline meet spark. It’s all out war as these two enemies go toe-to-toe in an ugly, take no prisoners battle to prove they’re the right choice to be CEO of the same company. All too soon playing dirty in the boardroom leads to playing even dirtier in the dark. It’s destined to end in personal and professional disaster. So why can’t they stop?

Early Reviews for Besting the Billionaire: 
This book is a must read, without a doubt. It's a romantic suspense with two strong lead, some very interesting supporting characters and I loved the plot. The twists you won't see coming and dang I was just sure I knew who was behind some of the things and I was flat out wrong. You really don't want to miss this book! The cover is hot but doesn't hold a candle to the flames in this amazing story! –Ayekah@Goodreads   
This was just such an intense read, so powerful and gripping. You do not want either character to lose. I loved how their story played out, finding out who was behind everything, and the epilogue (I totally loved) was sheer perfection. –Lori@Goodreads   
Now this is how to write a category romance that just leaps of the page. I loved this, it was funny, smokin' hot, had a bit of suspense and kept me reading waaay into the small hours of the night. –Alison@Goodreads   
This is the first book I’ve read from Alison Aimes and I am hooked. . . . It exceeded my expectations, it had a little bit of everything romance, comedy, steamy scenes and mystery. It was no wonder I couldn’t seem to put this book down. –Ofelia@Goodreads

“Do...do you want to talk about it?”
“No.”

She ignored the brief stab of hurt. “I understand.”

“Do you?”

“I think I do. You feel guilty even being here right now.”
Pain flared in his gaze. “Yes.”
But he was here anyway. Unable to help himself. Drawn to her. Just like she was to him.
She advanced another small step. “I’m not sorry you’re here. I’m glad.”
He shook his head. Looked away.
He’d been strong for her once. Known exactly what she needed. She was determined to be the same for him now. “It’s okay, Alexi. I really do understand.”
Shifting restlessly, he plowed a hand through his hair. Even with the distance still between them, she could sense the violence of his emotions.
It was several long heartbeats before he spoke. “The first thing I thought after I found out Lena was okay was how badly I wanted to be with you.” His gaze tangled with hers, as intense and raw and unapologetic as ever. “I shouldn’t have, but all I could think of was feeling your skin against mine. Drawing your scent into my lungs. Wrapping your thighs around me and driving deep.” He took a step closer. “Forgetting everything else and coming alive. The way I only do when I’m with you.”
Her heart stuttered and then floated out of her chest.
For a man like Alexi, to admit his need was probably as comfortable as swallowing a sharp knife. But here he was. Scared shitless, grieving, desperate for solace—and he’d come to her.
Her. The woman who been told a million times she was only good for one thing. Who’d been useful to the first man in her life as a pretty face and a punching bag. Who’d been useful to her second as a trophy and a nurse.
But not to this man. He was here because of her strength. Because she’d lived his pain and survived it. Experienced the same anguish of watching someone you loved dying, helpless to do anything. She knew how badly it ate at you. She understood words couldn’t do a damn thing to ease the agony.
Sometimes you just had to escape for a little while. Lean on someone else. Lose yourself in someone else.
“I’m here,” she told him, letting the last of her defenses crumble. “We can forget together. Come alive together.”
His gaze darkened to near black, his stare tracing from her running shoes past her jogging shorts and T-shirt up to her lips. “If you’re going to run, you better do it now.”
Excitement shivered along her skin. “And if I’m in the mood to be caught?”
“Even better.” He opened his arms.
 She didn’t hesitate. 
Sprinting forward, she leaped. Her mouth claiming his as he wrapped his arms around her and carried her backward into the trees.
Pure and total insanity with no outcome but disaster in sight, and yet she couldn’t stop if she wanted.

After the torment of her childhood, Taya believes in love for everyone … except herself. Some things can’t be untaught.

Beautiful and tough, yet the most private woman anyone has ever met, Taya knows everyone has a past, yet she doesn’t share hers. Her past must remain behind her for her sanity and so the only man she has ever loved will move on with someone who hasn’t been destroyed by those who were supposed to protect her.

Then a threat has her past storming back in and taking over.

After looking into the big, baby blue eyes of the deranged little orphan who was dragged, kicking and screaming, into his home, Levi is determined to be the boy who will teach Taya that not every offered hand will betray her.

Playful and gorgeous, Levi’s first passion is the girl who consumes his heart. His second is serving his country, following in his father’s footsteps. When Levi is deployed overseas, he encourages Taya to spread her wings and pursue her dreams, hoping she will come back to her roots and the man who is waiting for her.

Levi is mistaken.

Taya can’t change who she is and has built a life for herself far away from the only man she will ever love.

Can Levi convince Taya their relationship is worth the fight? Can he force her to overcome her fears and let him in completely? Can Levi prove his love is the freedom she has been searching for?

Levi allowed Taya to control their relationship in the past, but now things have changed. He is taking control back, with or without her consent.

Man Flu by Shari J. Ryan

Man Flu - A Stand-Alone Romantic Comedy
Shari J. Ryan
Now Available
 
Synopsis
I was trying to live every woman's dream, except my reality has been nothing but a nightmare job and a divorce at the age of thirty-two. Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse, my ex-husband, Rick, moved in next door with his life-size Barbie doll. So, that's been fun. Then, life pitched me a curve-ball in the form of a retired major-league baseball player, Logan Grier. With his panty-dropping smile, he’s like an expertly photoshopped version of David Beckham, and he's single. Could life be perfect after all? Of course not. As always, there had to be a catch. Logan had a secret, and I couldn’t help feeling like the truth was dangling right in front of my face. With Rick’s daily agenda of torturing me, Logan has been an enticing distraction, despite the little fact that he’s my temporary employee. Plus, I didn’t exactly care that his flirty behavior may have been a plan to get in good with the boss. In any case, I was willing to toss a few balls with him, seeing as my playing field hadn’t had any action in over a year. That’s when it happened…my two worlds collided. Hot temp met the ex, and a full-on bromance was born, but that’s only the beginning. The “man flu” has come out of nowhere and hit both Logan and Rick with a virus they’re claiming to be worse than childbirth. In fact, they’re pretty sure their end is near. Will the “man flu” be the kiss of death, or will it be my window for an opportunistic change?

Angela's Review: Healing Hope by C.A. Harms


36506556


Kindle Edition214 pages
Published November 14th 2017





Hope Larsen is living each day of her life with a crippling guilt. 
The game of ‘what if’ has made it almost impossible to move forward from such a 
horrific event. In one life-changing moment, someone who meant so very much 
to her was taken. A man who once was her best friend. A man she fell in love 
with. 

She wanted to love him freely even though he was gone and not feel so 
immobilized by his absence. Relive the memories of times they shared without 
feeling broken and lost. 

Then he shows up. 

He waltzes right into her life as if he belongs, strong confident and determined to 
make her see him. 

When Travis Donovan crosses paths with the snarky blonde, he’s intrigued. Her 
dismissal of him and his antics doesn’t have the effect she’d hoped for. In fact, 
it’s just the opposite. He’s not one to run scared from a challenge, but instead, 
he's the type to fight even harder to conquer it. 

Though she tries to fight her attraction for the cocky electrician, she finds that his 
dedication fascinates her.  
Hope comes to the realization that there’s one thing that scares her the most. 
This man reminds her of the one she lost. 
That stride, that smile, even the way he torments her…it’s all the same. He could 
be the one to show her that it's okay to move forward. It’s okay to love again. 

Travis Donovan just might be the one to heal Hope. 








Healing

Hope has been through something that shattered her life. She withdrew from her friends, family, and life in general. How will she respond to the man who pushes all her buttons? 

Travis is a great guy. He puts his family and employees first and thinks about himself last. What will happen when he crosses paths with a fiery blonde that he can't get off his mind?

I enjoyed this book, the relationship between Travis and Hope was genuine and full of heart.

#Starstruck by Sariah Wilson Release Blitz & Giveaway



Title: #Starstruck (#Lovestruck, #1) 
Author: Sariah Wilson 
Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Romantic comedy 
Release Date: January 16, 2018 
Cover Designer: Micheal Rehder 


With one uncharacteristically sassy tweet to her longtime celebrity crush, Zoe Miller’s life turns upside down. Ultrahot A-lister Chase Covington doesn’t just respond to Zoe’s tweet, he does the unthinkable: he messages Zoe directly. Now she must decide between walking away or meeting her crush in person.
Chase knows better than to trust anyone from the Internet, but Zoe’s saucy challenge has totally caught his interest—and her girl-next-door personality is keeping it. He’s been burned enough to know he needs to keep his heart close. But his feelings for Zoe might be a lot more than just an online flirtation. He just has to convince her…
When the press gets wind of Zoe and Chase’s secret relationship, their romance turns into tabloid headlines. Will they be able to hold on to their Hollywood love story?



“You must be Zoe Miller. I’m Chase. Covington.” He added on his last name like I wouldn’t know who he was. It was kind of endearing. I stared at his hand until the girl on my right nudged me and I gave him mine. A zap of raw electricity sparked at his touch, his hand warm and strong and big. It shot up my arm and spread all throughout my body making every part of me tingle. “Hi Chase Covington.” I don’t know how I was able to form words. Or how I hadn’t dissolved into an incoherent, blubbering pile of Zoe goo. “Hi Zoe Miller.” We were still shaking hands, which was basically holding hands at this point as it had gone on for so long. He was just grinning at me, like I was some long-lost friend he was excited to catch up with. I didn’t want to imagine what my slack-jawed, overwhelmed face looked like. He would probably think I was an idiot. A guy with dark brown hair and wearing a Bluetooth device in one ear came over. “Chase, Marty wants a word.” Chase finally let go of my hand. “Thanks, One-F. Stick around Zoe Miller. There’s more to say.” He walked backwards a few steps, like he didn’t want to stop looking at me. With a wink he finally turned and headed over to the director.
 



     


Bestselling author Sariah Wilson has never jumped out of an airplane, never climbed Mt. Everest, and is not a former CIA operative. She has, however, been madly, passionately in love with her soulmate and is a fervent believer in happily ever afters--which is why she writes romance. She has published many happily ever after stories. She grew up in southern California, graduated from Brigham Young University (go Cougars!) with a semi-useless degree in history, and is the oldest of nine (yes, nine) children. She currently lives with the aforementioned soulmate and their four children in Utah, along with three tiger barb fish, a cat named Tiger, and a recently departed hamster that is buried in the backyard (and has nothing at all to do with tigers).
