RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - Sexy as Sin (Filthy Rich #2) by Julie Kriss


Sexy as Sin by Julie Kriss is LIVE!!! They're rich, they're dirty, and they get tamed one by one! 
Sexy as Sin is Dane and Ava’s story!

Second chances burn hotter

The assignment should be a fashion stylist’s dream. Dane Scotland—brilliant programmer, millionaire, partner in my brother’s company—is going to a big-money meeting, and he needs to look the part.

The problem? Dane doesn’t want a makeover. He’s grumpy and reclusive, and his wardrobe consists of two pairs of old jeans. He doesn’t want me anywhere near him.

Did I mention that he’s my brother’s best friend? And that no one knows exactly what Dane and I got up to ten years ago?

The nerd I knew is gone—Dane ditched his glasses and bulked up. Now he’s six-foot-plus of hot genius, but I can be professional. I can definitely keep my hands off him. Again.

But when he looks at me like he used to, like no one else ever has, the only thing I want is to lose control.

Dane and I gave each other our first taste of heartbreak. Are we destined for another round?

After meeting both Dane and Ava in the first book, I was curious about the interactions between them, but as I got into this story, I began to think that this story should have been the last book of the series, I'm not sure how the other two stories are gonna compare after reading this one. Once I started reading, I literally sat on the couch and didn't move until I got to the end, that's how much I got pulled into the story.

There's quite a history between Dane and Ava, who've known each other over half their lives. They're both broken in their own ways, all due to their parents. Dane's pretty much come to grips with his parents and how they treat him, but Ava's still holding out hope when it comes to her mother. The friendship between Dane and Ava changed when she was 19 and he was 23, and continued for a few months, with the other three guys none the wiser about the change in their relationship.

There's a few professional issues that take place in this story that affect Dane and his business position within Tower VC, but there's even more upheaval when the truth of his feelings for Ava are brought to light. I liked how everything was resolved by the end of the book, and I am looking forward to Alex's and Noah's stories.

The tailor squawked as Dane pushed him aside, striding toward me in his underwear.
He put his hands on the arms of my chair and leaned over me, his eyes on mine. 
I could see every inch of his naked skin. He glared at me. “I get it,” he growled. “You’re pushing me. It’s what you do. Are you trying to see how far you can go?”
My voice came out breathy. God, I could smell him. “I’m not doing anything,” I said, and we both knew it was a lie.
“What do you want?” Dane said, thick with frustration. “Do you want me to say I’m sorry?”
My hands went cold and my breath stopped. “Sorry for what?”
“You know what. Sorry for what I did the last time I saw you.” He thought he had to apologize for that? As if he had done something wrong? Had he thought that all this time? I couldn’t bear the idea. “No,” I told him. “Don’t say you’re sorry for that.”
He still watched me, his voice softening a little. “I’ll say it if you want me to.”
“Don’t,” I choked out. “Don’t.”
A muscle in his jaw twitched, and then he shook his head, backing off. 
“Can I at least put my clothes on now?” I didn’t answer, and he didn’t wait for it. He grabbed his clothes and shoes and put them under his arm. 
“I’m going to dress in the men’s room,” he growled. “I’d like some privacy for a second.”
I still couldn’t speak. Dane walked away, and I downed the rest of the champagne in my glass, gulping it. He thought I wanted him to apologize. That fucking man. That brilliant, stupid, utterly infuriating man. I put my heels back on and stood up, looking at the suits and fabrics in the room. Now that the measurements were—mostly—done, I talked to the tailor about cuts, fabrics, and colors. Then my phone rang. Only after I hung up did I realize that Dane hadn’t come out of the bathroom, which was around the corner and down the hall.
“Would you like me to go find him?” the tailor asked politely.
“No need,” I said as suspicion bloomed in my gut. I walked around the corner myself, pushing open the door to the men’s room. 
“Dane!” The room was empty. “Fuck,” I said as the tailor came in after me. I turned to him. “Is there a back door?” He looked stunned. Most likely, none of his rich clients had ever made an escape while getting measured for a bespoke suit. 
“At the end of the hall,” he said.
“Fuck,” I said again. I half-ran down the hall, moving as fast as I could in my three-inch heels. 
I slammed the back door open and saw nothing but parking lot.
Dane was gone.

RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - Cheeky Candy by Mila Hart

Title: Cheeky Candy: The Suit & Tie Collection
Author: Mila Hart
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: December 4, 2019

Harrison is a stickler for the rules; a pretty face and knockout body won’t change his expectations. But Candace throws him off his game with brains and beauty...and a total lack of interest in Harrison. 

When rumors of the new boss start to spread, Candace plans to keep her distance from the man who rules with an iron fist. However, when Harrison challenges her work and reprimands her publicly, she can’t keep her cool.

Will she draw him in with her sweet charm or freeze him out completely? It’s up to Harrison to either prove the rumors wrong or let things get sticky with Candy.

This is a quick but entertaining and funny read, and I laughed pretty much from start to finish. I liked the career field they were a part of, I've not read a lot of books in which the characters are researchers in the medical community. As supervisor and subordinate, they seem to harbor some type of animosity between them, but that's just on the surface.

There's plenty of chemistry between Candace and Harrison, but Candace isn't looking to get involved with anyone, especially as the details of her last relationship are revealed, she's doing what she needs to do to protect her heart and her sanity. While Harrison comes across like a jackhole at the start, when it comes to Candace he's a sweetheart and willing to do whatever it takes to let Candace know he's for real about his feelings for her.

I was a bit surprised by Harrison's idea about how to handle their relationship, but I liked how everything worked out in the end, and the epilogue was especially sweet. I will say that I'm hoping we'll see stories on two of Candace's co-workers, Carlton and Garrison.

It all started with two whores...

RELEASE BLITZ & REVIE - Man About Town (Gentlemen, Inc. #4) by Thea Dawson

Title: Man About Town
Series: Gentlemen, Inc.
Author: Thea Dawson
Genre: Contemporary Rom/Com
Release Date: November 13, 2019

𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩? 𝘼 𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙩𝙡𝙚 𝙗𝙡𝙖𝙘𝙠𝙢𝙖𝙞𝙡 𝙣𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙝𝙪𝙧𝙩 𝙖𝙣𝙮𝙤𝙣𝙚.
How did a working-class girl who dreams of being a writer end up with a job at one of the exclusive banks on the west coast?
Dumb luck, that's how.
I’m pretty sure that any minute now, the Powers That Be will realize I don’t belong here. Before that happens, I need to figure out how to fit in—how to look the part, dress the part, and act the part.
Fortunately, there’s Marcus.
Hiring him to be my date for the office party was easy.
Blackmailing him into helping me revamp my image is actually kind of fun.
But not falling for him?
That might be impossible.

In an ill-advised moment of rebellion, I turned my back on my old job and my family’s wealth. Now I’m in Los Angeles working four part-time jobs and contemplating my life choices.
I grew up mingling with the rich and mighty, so I’m not worried when Alex hires me to impress her snooty co-workers.
And I’m only a little worried when she blackmails me into being her makeover mentor.
But when I start to fall in love with her?

Another fun story for this series! I loved the slow-building chemistry between Alex and Marcus, although the main reason for them being together meant for some awkward moments in the beginning at the office party. Of course, there are reasons why Marcus is employed with Gentlemen, Inc. and reasons why Alex needed to hire a date. They've both got their past issues to deal with, and the more time they spend with each other we get to see their interactions evolve into something real. 

Although part of a series, this can be read as a standalone, and I'm already looking forward to the next book in the series.

⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑ Amazon Customer "First off if you are looking for an original read and a well written story then this is the book for you."

⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑ Amazon Customer "A captivating read"

⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑ LadyM "I literally laughed out loud - like snort laughed, it was all fantastic."

The rings and rings, and I’m rehearsing what I’ll say to his voice mail when Marcus picks up.

“Good morning, Kitten.” His voice is thick with sleep. Somehow, over the weekend, I’d already forgotten how deep it is, and his baritone seems to vibrate right through to my core, distracting me with thoughts of the molded biceps and abs that go with it.

“Can’t go there,” I mutter.

“What was that?”

Shit, did I say that out loud? I hit my forehead with the palm of my hand. “I need your help, Hollingsworth,” I say in a low voice. “You’re not going to believe what’s happened to me this morning.”

“Good morning, Marcus. I’m sorry to wake you, Marcus. How was the rest of your weekend, Marcus?” he replies.

“Oh, for crying out loud, it’s nine a.m. on a Monday, Marcus. Most of us are up and running by now.” I freeze. “Wait, is the starlet of the week there?”

“The what?”

“Are you all groggy because you’ve got a woman there with you?”

“Do you honestly think I’d take a call from another woman if I had one here with me?” He actually sounds offended. “Unlike some people, I have manners,”

Okay, this conversation is getting off track. “Look, Hollingsworth, I need your help.”

“Oh, goodie.” He yawns. “Okay, Kitten. What’s up?”

“I just got asked to serve on a committee.”

“You woke me up to tell me you’re serving on a committee.” It’s not a question so much as an expression of profound resignation.

“It’s a big deal. Kind of like a promotion with more work and no extra money.”

“Sounds like just what you need. Maybe it’ll keep you out of trouble.”

“What I need is your help. You’re good at stuff like this. Plus, Logan was flirting with me. For real. I think. I need you to tell me what to do.”

“The only part of this conversation I understand is that you need my help with something, so let me ask you: what are you going to do for me in return?”

I bite my lip. I’d been kind of hoping he’d just help me because he’s nice, but that may be asking too much. “Um … not turn you in to Cassandra?”

“That one doesn’t work anymore. You turn me in, she slaps you with a five-hundred-dollar fine,” he points out evenly. “And you definitely don’t get my help. What else have you got?”

I rack my brains trying to think what I can offer him, but short of hard, cold cash, I can’t think of anything. And I’m running low on cash. “Oh crap, I don’t know, Hollingsworth. Are you going to make me beg?” This is followed by a long silence. “Are you still there?”

“Mm …” His voice sounds thick now with something besides sleep. “Just picturing you on your knees in front of me.”
