Caught Between Two Billionaires 
(A complete duet)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I was completely enraptured by this story. Torn in two by the two men in Harper’s life. I found myself continually going back and forth between the two, which made for page turning reading late into the night.

The old saying of “the heart wants what the heart wants” played over and over in my mind as Harper was drawn over and over again to a man who seemed to throw her love away, but the more Harper dug into the actions surrounding her life, the small things, Christopher had loved her for a long time, he just never said it. Christopher is a definite dark horse throughout the entire journey. Just when you begin to like him he does something that turns your like into dislike instantly. I kept wondering why Harper kept going back for more of his cool personality, aside from the fact that she grew up with men just like him and she was accustomed to that very thing, but perhaps that is why she was also drawn to his business partner, Sutton Mayfair.

Sutton is a man who is upfront and in your face with his feelings and wants. You knew exactly where he was coming from especially when it came to Harper. He may have held other secrets, but I think when it came to Harper he is forthcoming, honest and that is why we are so drawn to him. He tells her exactly what he wants from her emotionally and physically which is something she isn’t exactly used to, but she finds refreshing. Not only from his sunshine good looks that scream warmth, but to his welcoming personality. Harper has never really had a man in her life that has welcomed her with open arms and wanted to keep her by his side.

This is why is torn between them.  How do you break your hearts poisonous cycle of loving a man who doesn’t want to love you back and begin loving a man who only wants to openly love you? How do you rip yourself away from between the two of them when you also don’t want to give up the dark poison or the radiate sunshine, but you also know you can’t have both?

This complete duet of Caught Between Two Billionaires makes great reading so you are not caught waiting between cliffhangers of the individual stories and you are able to jump right into the next story with ease. If you haven’t read TRUST FUND, SURVIVAL OF THE RICHEST or THE EVOLUTION OF MAN now is the time.

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren comes a SMOKING HOT billionaire duet to immerse yourself in…

Billionaire Christopher Bardot may lust after his step-sister, but he will never, ever act on it. He’s too busy keeping her out of trouble. Until his business partner Sutton Mayfair meets her. He determines to charm that pretty dress off her, and Christopher sees red.

This isn’t a love triangle.
Only two people are in love.

This isn’t a menage.
Until the boundaries are pushed beyond bearing.

This isn’t a happy ending…
Because someone will be left behind.

Read the angsty and super sexy duet now! This collection contains TRUST FUND, SURVIVAL OF THE RICHEST and THE EVOLUTION OF MAN.

EXCERPT

My body behaved in two different manners. My stomach revolted. My skin crawled. My teeth clenched. My heart banged. My limbs and shoulders tensed. I was hunching and purring like a cat in front of a rabid dog, praying he’d just go away.
At the same time, my skin tingled, my nipples hardened, my breath hitched, my cheeks burned. My p*ussy throbbed. It was as if I liked the way he looked at me. Welcomed it. Didn’t want it to end. Didn’t want him to go.
Even when he was on top of me uninvited.

But how? Why? I hated Enzio more than any other person in the world. I wanted him to suffer. I wanted him dead.
It must have been his looks. My body burned and itched solely for these. Trained to lust over them and only them. My pussy couldn’t recognize they now belonged to the man that wanted to violate me and I was planning to destroy, not the man I loved with all my heart.
Wrong husband, body. Wrong husband. We hate this one. Remember that. Please.

Review – Real Fake Love by Pippa Grant

52714963

Real Fake Love; Copper Valley Fireballs #2 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Pippa Grant

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Hilarious! Snort-laugh-out-loud, make your sides hurt, hilarious fun!

Pippa Grant gives us the best opposing forces in the grouchiest, grumpiest hero that you cannot help but love and matches him with the happiest, full of sunshine and sprinkles heroine that I’m fairly certain is Pippa’s inner Id. Real Fake Love is such a good time you won’t be able to keep yourself from smiling, laughing, and falling in love with Luca and Henri the entire way through.

Henrietta Bacon loves love! She is a romance writer after all, so the world is painted in sunshine and rainbows. The fact that she’s been left by five fiancé’s on her wedding day is beginning to dim on view on love just a bit and to help her over the top libedo that can’t seem to help falling in love with the next available man in line she seeks out help to NOT fall in love and she knows just the expert to help with her problem.

Luca Rossi may seem like no stranger to losing, especially when he was traded to the team that was most known for losing. However, their team is actually having their best season in years. However, no matter how well a team is playing he’s always the guy that gets traded, so forming attachments, getting close…yeah he isn’t exactly what you call a warm and fuzzy kind of guy. When his Nonna shows up at his run down house ready for him to settle down Luca didn’t really want to battle her, but he also wasn’t ready to be pressured into any kind of relationship either. Was it fate that a certain romance writer showed up on his doorstep that day looking for her own help or was he already cursed?

This entire book is filled with fun, no matter who is on the page. The main characters, secondary characters, past characters, imaginary characters (yeah that’s right…Pippa can write a book with imaginary characters tucked right in and it’s brilliant), everybody is crazy good. This book is like receiving unicorn dreams and puppy kisses.

Synopsis:

If people have polar opposites, Luca Rossi is mine.

His butt is in the baseball hall of fame. Mine’s comfortably seated in the hall of lame.

When he’s not snagging fly balls out in center field, he’s modeling in shampoo commercials. I once jammed my own finger while stirring cookie dough, and sometimes I forget shampoo is a thing.

He’s a total cynic when it comes to love.

I make a living writing love stories.

But after my latest broken engagement (no, I don’t want to talk about how many times that’s happened), it’s clear he’s exactly the man I need.

If anyone can teach me to be the opposite of me, it’s him.

The first thing I want him to teach me?

How to not fall in love.

And as luck would have it, he’s in desperate need of a fake girlfriend to get a meddling grandmother off his back.

We couldn’t be more perfect together, because the last thing Luca Rossi will ever be is the next man to leave me at the altar.

Or will he?

Real Fake Love is a line drive straight to the heart featuring a grumpy athlete, a jilted bride, a fake relationship, and the world’s laziest cat. It stands alone and comes complete with sibling rivalry, the world’s most awkward shower scene, and a sweetly satisfying happily ever after.

AUTHOR BIO

K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.

They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women they love.
If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.
