With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course she isn't interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet's misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match.

Violet and her over sharing, nonchalant and just somewhat blasé look at things about dating an ice hockey player again is the best thing, but of course life intervening in the form of Alex and his nerdy-jock ways had my wires crossed the best way. They fumbled through the romance, being on the spot light dynamics and if that locker room sex doesn't thaw the heart don't know what it, plus Alex's dick graduates from being called a 'sniffie' to 'monster cock' who stars in dreams wearing a cape with a moustache.
Violet's playfulness just makes every dork out there proud. own it.

Miller "Buck" Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed-up front teeth. After five years in the NHL, deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies, Miller has decided he's ready for a girlfriend. A real, nonbunny girlfriend to take on dates and not jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation. Miller thinks he's found that woman in his teammate's sister.

Oh 'Buck' I swear Butterson was giving me hives all through with the way he just kept accidentally walking into situations that painted him a negative light even when he didn't do anything wrong. plus I loved the nickname 'flash beaver', 'dick yeller', because sometimes we all forget names and your actions get you a real nice name 😂😂
sunshine could have been better in her judgement of the situation but through the book its easy to keep forgetting she's only 20 sonce this feels like a mid-twenties novel. But they came out shinning after going a little long without each other. The underpinning charity, Bucks dyslexia, his kum's early passing, do mane the story real and tangible and this story is just close to how bad things sometimes get whether we like it on not, with a side os poison ivy on your boobs if you have make up sex in the forest. Poor 'sunnys' little nipples. 😄😄

Bears and bunnies aren't supposed to mix, or that's what Chase keeps telling himself when his bouncy new neighbor won't stay out of his business - and his mind. However, the more he gets to know his overly perky neighbor, the more he craves her. It's a desire worse than his addiction to honey and pie.

The storyline was alright and the story flowed and I liked the intrigue woven through but jesuuuus what was with the weird gritted voice of Chase, I thought he was grumpy but the narrator would switch to smoother man voice like all parts of hero narrated by females but even Victors voice was that horribe.
it did pull me off from the narrative a little.
but overall I chose to hear the story and.not the voices but still. *wince*

This was short and sweet read and definitely a different take on magic nudging people to find love. lord knows these days some people can't find the one so going to another era might be the solution. It wasn't too heavy but it flowed and the characters fit into both worlds during the beginnings of the time travels to get to know each other *albeit not knowing what was happening*

I liked the different take in shifters in this novel and there was humour as tge counter sass and realness. i'm used to shifter books where the can readily shift any time be it painful or not unlike the monthly thing but variety is good right? The drive of the hero and Heroine in this books was great and had a strong base to hold to the end. took me till that flower delivery to finally connect the dots that Sebastian might be Lana's twin. 'she wondered if her father was a writer like her' and he likes poetry sooo....

I got used to the humour that comes with Lauren Blakely but this book felt different and like early on work, its great to see progress in an author and she's got so good. But I stll loved this story, the heroine and her career was so different and interesting as was the hero.

For most of my life, I never imagined I’d get married. But Kate did the impossible: she changed me. I think we can all agree I was pretty frigging awesome before, but now I’m even better. The road to this day wasn’t all rainbows and boners. There were mistakes and misunderstandings worthy of a Greek tragedy. But Kate and I made it through with our inexhaustible lust, boundless admiration, and everlasting love for one another intact.

Drew has been a great character as he is slightly nearly annoying when he goes off the rails or reacts oddly in a humane way that maaaybe childish. but he's awesome, he's comical and so real and this last instalment to his story and Kate was great. Their son James is probably the cutest thing ever. I could picture him so well. The family dynamic is so good.
I loved this so much.

When Brent Mason looks at Kennedy Randolph, he doesn't see the awkward, sweet girl who grew up next door. He sees a self-assured, stunning woman...who wants to crush the most intimate - and prized - parts of his anatomy beneath the heels of her Louboutins. When Kennedy looks at Brent, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue-worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school in order to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell for her.

The amount of times I laughed, cheered and bobbed my head while these two muddled about getting back to the good relationship they had back in the day served with a head of sass and copious amounts of confidence.
Emma chase never disappoints and this series takes its place up there.

"Marry me." "What?" I stared back at him, unblinking. He moved closer, taking my face in his hands. "I love you, Evie. I look into the future, and the only thing I see clearly is you. Marry me." What's an 18-year-old girl who was madly in love with her 19-year-old boyfriend say? Of course, I said yes. Twenty-four hours later, I married Adam Gunner at a Vegas chapel. Then, exactly one week later, I left him. I walked out, leaving behind my wedding ring, annulment papers, and my heart, and he never knew why.

maybe it was the narrators or because i'm used to the more comedic sexy romance that Samantha Towle writes but this book didn't gel with me. its a little different maybe but i still liked it. its so sad and its real and it still flowed. But I missed the humour from previous books by her.

I'm used to being in charge. In and out of the office. So, when my parents go behind my back and hire a co-CEO to help me manage my family's business, let's just say I don't take it too well. Especially not when the woman they've hired is the one girl who hated my guts in college. She thinks I'm an overprivileged, womanizing man-whore. I think she's an uptight, stuck-up bitch. And now she's here, in my office, telling me how to run my company. I don't think so.

There's no putting down book by Samantha Towle. she's so funny, great flow and so real. The story of love/hate and life intervening because sometimes we take too long to figure things out. I laughed too much and oohed as usual.
