Review – Falling For The Playboy

Falling For The Playboy; Bedtime Reads #2 (Series)
by Kennedy Fox (Author)

This review is from: November 12, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

Working for an author where part of the job is to take a roadtrip with a sexy cover model…ummm…YES!

Well, that wasn’t exactly the reaction Olivia Carpenter had when her employer, author Rachel Meadows, told her she would be driving the cover model, Maverick Kingston, around in the car for two weeks during her book tour.

Olivia is familiar with the type of men who grace the covers of romance novels and Maverick is well known as a playboy. After their first meeting and he arrives late, her opinion doesn’t change and the thought of driving him from location to location because he refuses to fly only helps to infuriate Olivia further given her tight schedule for Rachel on the tour. She doesn’t need some arrogant, cocky playboy messing up the job she loves all because he can’t listen to directions. How Rachel expects her to babysit the man without losing her mind should earn her a big, fat raise, yet Olivia knows that would also be a miracle knowing how Rachel doesn’t notice things like how hard she works.

Maverick finds great joy in annoying Olivia. Her prissy schedule is the first thing that needs to go because she is entirely way too uptight for most of the two week trip. He likes to live his life easy-breezy and Olivia is anything but and no matter how Maverick tries to loosen her up Olivia is wound up tighter than an anyone he’s ever met. However, on the rare occasions when he catches her with her prissy hair down, Maverick finds himself intrigued by the girl underneath the constant schedules and routine and he actually really, really likes her. He likes both sides to the woman and the more time they spend together the more he realizes he wants more.

When the trip finally comes to an end what will Olivia and Maverick decide when the rules of the road…trip no longer apply?

A sweet, enemies to lovers novel where I hope that not all PA’s are actually treated like Olivia were.

Release Date: November 12, 2018

BLURB

What happens when a devil falls for an angel?
One sassy FBI agent is about to get tied up with the biggest crime boss in Kentucky.
They’ll say it’s forbidden. They’ll say it’s wrong.
But this kingpin needs a queen.
And she’ll be getting all of his crown…

Kingpin. Devil. Beast. Every story has a villain, and trust me, I’m every inch the bad man they say I am. I’m ruthless, brutal, and cold.

…But that’s before Taylor crashes into my world.

She’s my complete opposite. Innocent, good, pure. A sweet as pie country girl that a demon like me should stay the f*ck away from, for so many damn reasons. Reasons like her being half my age. Or that her family and mine have been feuding for generations.

…And the little detail that little miss innocent works for the damn FBI.

She’s here to take me down. And I’ll be going down all right, but not in the way she thinks I am. Because I’ve had a taste, and now I want the rest.

She’s my temptation. My weakness, my forbidden desire. She’s my ruin. Legs for days. Curves that beg for my strong hands to grab ahold of. Lips that were made for me to claim.

I’ve been a devil. I’ve been a bad, bad man. But even devils get a chance at redemption. And she’s mine.

Even the most dangerous beast can be tamed.

…But she’s gonna need both hands to tame me.

The wrong brother…

Ireland needs a fresh start, and her cousin convinces her to take a chance on a charismatic bad-boy with a wicked boat and a killer body. But when Ireland shows up for the popular Lake Tahoe booze cruise he runs, she finds his handsome older brother at the helm instead.

Bran likes things structured and predictable. Especially after the mistakes he made ten years ago. But his father’s recent passing threw his calm life into chaos, and now Bran is in charge of the family’s five-star restaurants. He’s been grasping to get things back to status-quo ever since.

He has no idea how much more complicated life will get.

Flame-haired Ireland is exactly the type of beautiful woman Bran has programed himself to avoid. But when she falls into his lap on a booze cruise his brother asked him to cover, the boat isn’t the only thing tossed by the water. Bran’s heart goes overboard as well.

Headstrong Ireland is nothing Bran wants, and everything he needs.

Title: NEVER LET ME FALL
Series: Fatal Dreams

About NEVER LET ME FALL

Seeing is believing…
Thomas Brown can’t see color, but he can see people’s true souls. His abilities allow him to work with criminal investigators and deliver justice to families of the wronged. And he’s starting to accept that his life will forever be in black and white…

Then he encounters Helena Grayse, and everything changes. She brings vibrant color to his world, and he brings acceptance and belief to hers. But Helena’s past is quickly catching up with her, and Thomas is in the crosshairs.

As an enemy hidden in plain sight threatens their every move, they’ll have to rely on their love to beat the darkness.

Excerpt:

She’d loved Rory the way any naive girl could love a boy. Their relationship had been a sweet exploration for both of them. It hadn’t been complicated or difficult. It had been nice and easy and, for her, different. He had been her first in so many ways. Her first boyfriend. Her first lover. Her first heartbreak.

“Oh, Rory.” She whispered the words—not quite ready to let the world have the full volume of her voice. “Everything was so normal one moment, then the next you were dead and everyone blamed me.” The situation had been horrible all around, but one thing had made it even worse for her—knowing that someone had killed Rory and gotten away with it. She wanted to promise him that she’d find his real killer. But she didn’t make promises she couldn’t keep.

No tears came for Rory. Just as she’d had none for her grandparents when she’d visited their graves, minutes ago. The only thing she felt was regret that so many people’s lives had been shattered. Rory’s. His mother’s. Her grandparents’.

She tore her gaze away from the gravestone and the pain it represented.

A man stood no more than fifty feet from her. Tall and… Strong came to mind. It was more than the width of his shoulders; it was something about the set of them, as if he carried a heavy burden. His hair was so dark it rivaled the majesty of the night sky. But it was his eyes that enthralled her.

From that distance, she couldn’t see their color, but she could see kindness in them. Maybe it was the way they tilted down at the outer edges to lend a strange understanding to his expression. But then his lips moved, sliding upward, into a look of undiluted male satisfaction.

Her heart warmed under his appraisal, and the weirdest sensation came over her. It took a moment for her mind to match a word to the feeling—pleasure. She basked in the glory of his attention. Everything inside her wanted to go to him. Meet him. Talk to him. But the thought of speaking, of sharing that piece of herself that she’d kept hidden away for so many years… The mere thought terrified her. Her voice had been the only part of the past ten years that she’d retained control over.

All the warmth she got from being the center of his focus turned to ice. She wasn’t fit for public consumption. Fairson Reformatory for Women had fractured her as neatly as a broken bone. Now she needed time to heal. Oh, and that wasn’t even taking into consideration her status as a felon. As much as she wished it wasn’t true, people would judge her for the rest of her life on that murder conviction.

She couldn’t bear to look at him any longer, couldn’t bear to see him looking at her. Without any hesitation, she turned and walked away. Her legs felt gangly and awkward, as if they didn’t want to obey her bidding, but she forced her feet to keep moving.

Don’t look back. Don’t look at him. Don’t you dare.

She clenched her fists so tight they shook. A deep, throbbing ache formed in her palm where the Sister’s blade had sliced her. Exactly what she needed. She thrust her fingers wide open, stretching the injury, allowing the burning pain to vanquish all thoughts of the man.

One step and then another, she walked through the wrought-iron cemetery gates and headed out of town toward her next destination. The cold didn’t bother her. She’d planned to be outside all day and had made sure to purchase thick, warm clothing.

She followed the strip of road as it wound its way through the naked woods and low hills. Salt crunched beneath her insulated boots, the sound rhythmic and soothing. Occasionally a car passed, but for the most part she was alone. Alone was nice. Alone meant she was safe. Safe from the Sisters for the first time in ten years.

Some women spent years planning for their wedding. She’d spent the past decade planning for this day. The day she walked out of prison.

She used to fantasize about Grandma making all her favorite foods. The joy of sleeping in her own bed. But Grandma and Grandpa had died in a car accident on their way to visit her three years ago. And then she’d had to sell the house…

It’d taken a while, but she’d formulated a new idea. Visit the graves of everyone she’d lost, visit the Bear, then find a place to stay. She’d give herself one night—maybe two—to say a final goodbye to the life she used to lead and then move on. Move away from this place that represented so much pain.

About Abbie Roads

Abbie Roads loves Snickers Parfaits and acrylic pour painting. It’s her new obsession. The pour painting. Not the parfaits. Though the parfaits would qualify as an obsession too. She spends her days a mental health counselor always looking on the brightside, but at night she likes to write dark and dangerous things—with kissing and sexy times. She loves reading inspirational quotes and stories about serial killers. She is married to her favorite fellow and they have two cranky old rescue dogs that are not spoiled. Not at all. Okay. Maybe a little. Alright, the dogs are terribly spoiled, but they do give lots of cuddles and kisses in return.

He holds a power over me like no one else ever could.

Maybe it’s because my heart begs to beat in time with his.
Maybe it’s because my body bows to his and his alone.
Maybe it’s because he thought he loved me before he even laid eyes on me.

He thought wrong, it wasn’t me he thought he loved, and nothing has made me suffer like that little secret has.  He thought I belonged to him, but he was wrong. It was never supposed to be me.

Our memories are deceiving, but I know what I want now.
What I need more than anything.
I won’t rest until he’s as much mine as I am his.
It’s always been him.
