Illustrated Temptations: Appealed by Emma Chase


Happy Book Birthday to Emma Chase!!! Appealed just went live the other day and I am so excited for you guys to meet Brent and Kennedy. This 3rd book from The Legal Briefs Series is such a sweet addition to the gang! I thoroughly enjoy reading Emma’s work (as if I haven’t mentioned that over and over and over again).

This story is all about second chances. B and K were oozing hot and sexy as hell together but it was the witty banter they shared that had me constantly laughing out loud. I loved Kennedy’s feisty  attitude plus Brent’s sexy humor. It’s amazing how Emma Chase brilliantly writes romances involving fierce, independent, sexy heroines with rich-playboy-with-cocky-attitude-heroes who always end up madly in love with each other. Also I have to point out that Emma deserves to get an award–“The BEST” in writing in male’s POV. I really think she was a guy in her former life. lol
All I can say is, one-click all of her books. Now.

Check out some of my teasers below… Continue reading

Illustrated Temptations: NUTS by Alice Clayton


I loved Simon! I loved Wallbanger and the rest of the Cocktail Series. I loved the Redhead Series! I love Alice Clayton! Always have and always will. 🙂 And now NUTS–the first book in The Hudson Valley Series is just really refreshingly good and overall a fantastic read. And yes, I LOVED it!

Hands down to Alice Clayton for always writing the best humorous and yet sexy-hawt books! The complexities of the characters are so well developed. I loved the banters, the funny exchanges, and all the innuendos are just spot on!

I totally can’t wait for the next book! What a great start to a new series!

For now, check out my pREVIEW and head on to Katiebird’s review after. 😉

Review: 10 Ways to Kill a Cupid by Leigh Parker

Leigh has a story to tell and despite the absurdity of it, it has to be told before it’s forgotten forever.

You see Leigh used to be a Cupid.
A very silly, naive and regretfully bitter Cupid.
And those are traits a Cupid shouldn’t technically possess.
When Leigh’s murderer is the next assignment, revenge stands in the way of helping Natalie McIntyre find her perfect partner…
That is until the appearance of the blue spark.

Warning: Contains strong language


I received this book from the author to review and, even though it’s not the type of book I usually opt for,  I have to say it was an enjoyable read.

“10 Ways to Kill a Cupid” is told in 1st person narrative, from Leigh’s perspective, and it tells about Leigh’s attempts at being a Cupid while finding the soul mate of one of the most despicable people of the planet. Basically, Leigh tells us that once you die you can be either an Angel, a Reaper or a Cupid. The role of Cupid seems to suit Leigh best, but things get tough when her assignment is to help Natalie find her soul mate. Natalie is a hard character to like at the beginning of the book, she’s depicted as one of the most hateful people one could encounter and Leigh doesn’t have any qualms about expressing her resentment toward her.
