Behind your back (Behind Your Back #1) by Chelsea M. Cameron

Available on
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

To get to him, I need to use her. I’ll play her like a violin and have her falling in love with me before she even knows what’s happening. It will be easy. I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again. She’s just a girl. A tool to get what I want. When I’m done with her I won’t think twice about walking away. At least, that was what I thought. Until I met her.
Review:
I loved the Fall and Rise series by this author, so when I saw this book I was intrigued. A guy that needs to lead a girl on, is playing her for his own reasons, but ends up falling for her? Sounds good. Only...it was disappointing. I kept looking to see if this was really the same author. It was so very different from the Fall and Rise series, the writing, the characterization, everything, and not in a good way. I thought well maybe this was the authors first books or something, but no it came out after those. I don't really know what happened with this one, but it missed …

King of Hearts (Hearts #3) by L.H. Cosway

Image
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * GoodreadsSynopsis:

Welcome to the City, London’s most prestigious square mile, where finance reigns and Oliver King is a rising prince. 
I used to rule the world.
There might be wolves on Wall Street, but there were crocodiles in Canary Wharf. Some of us craved money. Some of us craved power.
I liked money, and power had its advantages, but what I really wanted was to excel, to surpass the men who came before me. I never cared much for love and romance until I met Alexis.
I could feel it the very moment she walked into the interview, with her outspoken charm and vivacious personality. She cast all the others in shadow, made me laugh when life held no humour. Our friendship should have remained professional, but it wasn’t long before the lines started to blur.
You know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men? Well, I never foresaw where my plans would lead, and only in my darkest hour did I finally see the light…
You can have all the money and prestige…

Her Backup Boyfriend (Sorensen Family #1) by Ashlee Mallory

Image
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

One little white lie leads to more than she planned…
Straight-laced lawyer Kate Matthews always plays by the rules. But when her ex gets engaged and a big promotion is on the line at work, she blurts out that she has a new boyfriend. And now that she’s proved she “has a life” outside of work, everything is perfect. Except for one teeny little detail—there is no boyfriend. And now Kate’s liable for her little white lie…
Dominic Sorensen is hot, charming, and very definitely not Kate’s type. But not only does Dominic want to help Kate renovate her home, he’s also willing to play “boyfriend.” All he wants in return is a little pro bono work for his sister. Now instead of Mr. Right, Kate has a delectable Mr. Fix-It-Right—and some unbelievable sexual chemistry. And if falling for Dominic is a breach of contract, Kate is guilty as charged…
Review:
Her Backup Boyfriend was a cute read. Light and fun and enjoyable. Kate and Dominic were really cute toget…

Synopsis:

Tina Chen just wants a degree and a job, so her parents never have to worry about making rent again. She has no time for Blake Reynolds, the sexy billionaire who stands to inherit Cyclone Technology. But when he makes an off-hand comment about what it means to be poor, she loses her cool and tells him he couldn’t last a month living her life.
To her shock, Blake offers her a trade: She’ll get his income, his house, his car. In exchange, he’ll work her hours and send money home to her family. No expectations; no future obligations.

But before long, they’re trading not just lives, but secrets, kisses, and heated nights together. No expectations might break Tina’s heart...but Blake’s secrets could ruin her life.
Review:
Trade Me was such a fun read. Blake and Tina are so cute together and they both have some issues to deal with before then can reach their happily ever after, but they were awesome. 

Tina is a poor co…

Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Love is somewhere near the bottom of Lily Thomas’ list of life goals, right next to competitive eating and underwater cave diving.

These Janus Group books are so much fun to read. Definitely some of my favorite stories. I read the original trilogy and loved every minute of it so when I saw the author was writing another in the same world I was…

I was never meant to be free.
Evil has taken from me again.
I’ve lost the two people I’ve grown to love because another of Hell’s bastards has staked his claim on me and stolen me away.

Time she doesn’t have.
This is on my head.
I f*cked up.

Review:

Oh man, Warped was an amazing read. Seriously. You should all go get this book and read it on release day. Or, for those who are new to Emma James, read Wrenched now so you are good to go next week. I should note that Warped is the second book in a series and is NOT a standalone. You have to have read Wrenched prior to this book or you …

Sugar Daddies by Jade West

Image
Now available onAmazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:
A sugar daddy website doesn’t seem a sound basis for an A1 life plan, but I’m a small town girl with big dreams, and there’s this one advert, this one crazy advert I can’t stop thinking about…

Two hot guys seeking their Little Miss Right. Someone who can entertain them, amuse them, fit in with their corporate schedule. And sex. They want sex. Lots of sex. Bonus, right? One major dose of epic win.

Of course, guys like Carl and Rick have their conditions. One being that they come together, or not at all. Hell, I can live with that.

And there are no skeletons in their designer closet, none that I can find. Just two hot sugar daddies, with particular tastes, nothing to worry about.

Until Carl and Rick spill the big one, the one that sends the girls running. A whole string of them before me, running to the hills without so much as a backward glance.

Maybe I should run, too. Thanks but no thanks, see you around, guys, nice knowing you. B…

Beneath This Mask (Beneath #1) by Meghan March

Image
Available on
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Barnes & Noble * Goodreads
Synopsis:
He loves me, and he doesn’t even know my real name. 
The limelight that follows him could expose everything I’m hiding. But even knowing the risks, I can’t force myself to stay away. 
I’m going to break his heart, but mine will shatter right along with it. 
Will we lose it all when I reveal what’s beneath this mask?
Review:
Beneath This Mask was a better read than I was expecting. The synopsis just sounded okay to me, but I really was drawn into the story right from the start. Yes, Charlie could be annoying at times, but she was written in such a way that I still liked her and enjoyed her story. 

Charlie is hiding from her past. Her father is in jail for fraud and the FBI is looking for her as they think she might know something. Instead of sticking around she ran. She changed her name, tries to make sure people don't get too close to her and hopes no one will find her. She is now working at a tattoo parlor and…

Something Real (Reckless & Real #2) by Lexi Ryan

Image
Available on
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

After everything blew up on Christmas, Liz walked away from me, and I let her. She saidshe needed space and a chance to pursue her dreams. But we both knew she was running from the mess she made. Now the political campaign she used as an excuse to leave is bringing us back together and I’m proving to her what she really needs—not just the hot nights, greedy hands, and undeniable physical chemistry. What she really needs is something real. What she really needs…is me.
Review:
Note: Something Real is a continuation of the story started in Something Reckless. You definitely should have read that book before starting this one or you will not know what is going on. Spoilers for book one ahead!
Something Real starts up right where Something Reckless left off, then jumps forward a bit to see the outcome of everything. Liz runs away when she realizes it was Sam's dad she was talking to and she feels horrible. She blames herself and she …

He wants to tie me up, but I don’t know his face.
He turns me on, but I couldn’t point him out in a crowd.

Lizzy Thompson met riverrat69 online through a service promising to deliver meaningful relationships by forbidding its users to share names or photos until they’ve reached a certain benchmark. She was looking for love. He was researching an investment. They hit it off. Talked and flirted, hid behind screen names and cartoon avatars.
Now they’re breaking the rules and meeting in person. But Liz is prepared. She’s picked up hints and followed clues. She’s nearly convinced she’s discovered the identity of her dirty-ta…
