A lot of the heroines I read in my books are just babies. Oh umm, I mean my favorite male characters. Luckily, her best friend might have found the perfect opportunity: a job staying at the lavish penthouse apartment of hotel magnate Bancroft Mills while he's out of town, taking care of his exotic pets. For me, there are a few reasons. And the mischievous ferret Francesca was the cute lil bow that tied it all together and made this a favorite for me. I truly applaud them for trying.
Also, as history proves, Amie's not the best We all remember Amie from She's Ruby's best friend and she's engaged to Armstrong - the idiot cousin of Bane and Lex. She goes to the restroom and when she comes out she is kissed by Mr. I knew he was a big old dirt bag. This book will transport you to a tropical island along with the heroine, who ends up going on her honeymoon alone. She flies to Bora Bora, only to bump into the same guy she jumped after her wedding day. Especially when we have a character like Armstrong.
One minute things were looking good, the next, his dodgy cousin had stepped in and stolen his girl. But when the newly-evicted Ruby arrives to meet her new employer, it turns out Bane is the same guy who got her sick. He protected Ruby's feeling and makes sure she is taken care of when she lost her apartment, when someone tries to bad mouth her or when her dad is not being as supportive. Ruby and Bancroft are so endearing! Her writing is impeccable in a way that you really cannot identify a single mistake, but instead get a sense of adoration towards her characters and her fictional worlds. This is a slow burn of a romance - there's lots of flirtatious phone calls and teasing texting to heat things up. As a product of the same kind of privileged background, I will say this financial partnership dance is one of the less desirable parts of being among the wealthy.
The last thing I need is baby makes three. And oddly, he didn't run away. It had parts that were emotional, and it was a bit of a forbidden love story as well. But Armstrong was the safer choice. And from their first clash I was all in. Bane was an attractive character, but seemed too weak??? A case of mistaken identity turns into wow that was some kiss.
Oh umm, I mean my favorite male characters. But instead of getting her big break, she gets sick as a dog and completely bombs it in the most humiliating fashion. I mean like the hell out of him. He's confident, a little cocky, and has swagger for days. It sounds really funny and crazy.
Ruby, man I love that song. What would happen when he got home? I was given an advanced copy of this book to write an honest review for Netgalley and Cocktails and Books. Plugs indicate self-consciousness and excessive vanity. But being a triple threat and the daughter to the man running a pharmaceutical empire hasn't given her a boost. That's also why she's now stealing crab cakes at her best friend's engagement party.
My blurb-sense, blurb-dar, whatever you want to call it, told me this book was going to be amazing. Hooking Up was the perfect blend of fun, sun, sexiness, and sweetness. And then things get a whole lot more complicated. It didn't help that Bane and Ruby barge in on them. Is it going to overwhelmed by too much sex with a hot half nekkid dude on the cover. It was okay, couldn't totally finish it.
So when our worlds collide, I never expected him to be the one to jump in and save me. It became more tolerable because I love, love, love Jacob Morgan's voice and can listen to him all day. I love how she names her men, how she makes them a perfect blend of sweet, perv, and assertive. Helena has provided— yet again— another love story that will have you salivating for more and much more. Stormy blue eyes, quick wit, and the secrets she keeps on the tip of her tongue make me forget my mission for a moment, or six, and why I'm in Paris in the first place - to bring her home. She's very determined to stand on her own two feet, and despite her setbacks she does what she needs to do in order to stand on those feet. Worse, she was even declined when she auditioned for a role because she couldn't even give her shot due to her condition.
Thus begins a 5-week-long courtship via videochat! The way people look at me differently the moment they know who my family is and that I come from money. Lucky for this little chickadee, she seems to just magically have all her problems fixed and everything fall into place. While it's a kiss to remember, it's not good that he's got the flu!! They start up a hot affair that was supposed to end when the honeymoon did, but when they return to the real world they realize that there was something more there than just a hook up. There's a slow burn to all the really smexy parts but the angsty banter between Ruby and Bane made it worth the wait. This book was sooo adorable! And I was a hot mess the next day.
