ARC Review: One Night by Leatha(The lighter side of Aleatha Romig)

 


A sweet, fun, and sexy stand-alone romance from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

One night to remember

Is that too much to desire?

One night for fun, passion, and a chance to remember what it’s like to be a woman.
I’m not looking for love.
There’s a man in my life who loves me with all his heart. He has beautiful blue eyes, is three feet tall, and calls me mommy.
He’s my whole world and I’m his. Fate stole his daddy way too soon.
What would happen if I allowed fate another chance, just for one night?

One night to help a friend

Why did I agree to this?
Blind dates are disasters. If I weren’t helping the friend of a friend, I wouldn’t go.
I’m not looking for romance, love, or even a one-night stand.
After all, the man my friend knew is gone. I’m no longer the hockey star known for his “pep” on the ice and in the sack. I have a new life, and a new career—a new passion. I’m not looking for more.
When the blind date is a bust, could fate change everything?

One night doesn’t end with a kiss—it begins with one.

Be ready to laugh, cry, and fall head over heels as you meet Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha in this new sweet and sexy stand-alone romance, ONE NIGHT.

This was such a fun and light read. The MCs were incredibly lovable and I was rooting for them from beginning to end. Mandy was so cute and relatable. I feel like we’ve all been Mandy and allowed the pressures of life to let us forget the fun, carefree person we used to be. Malcolm is the man we’ve always wanted too. He was sexy and caring and generous. He was also amazingly patient. He never pushed Mandy to share what she wasn’t ready to or give what she wasn’t prepared to give. Another great read from Leatha. I have to admit, though, that I am thoroughly traumatized by Aleatha and was waiting for the ball to drop. Now I’m wondering if this is all a ploy to make us relax so she can fully Aleatha us on her next dark story. Am I thinking too hard? Overanalyzing? Maybe, but I love every word I read from either Leatha or Aleatha. This is a feel good story that will absolutely leave you with a smile on your face!

Review: All In(Full Tilt Series) by Emma Scott

all-in-emma-scott

I must admit that I was a little worried going into this story with the way the first story ended. I wasn’t sold on the authenticity of falling in love with the brother. However, this was perfectly written. I was skeptical, but by the end of this story I wanted nothing more than to see Theo and Kacey happily together. Kacey was a bit of a hot mess, while Theo was such a patient, generous soul. She needed to be grounded and she needed to be shaken up. Their union made so much sense. The story also took a hard, realistic look at addiction, There were some sad moments, some awkward moments, and some HOT moments that all managed to be real at the same time. Great completion to the duet!

Review: Slip of the Tongue by Jessica Hawkins

This story started slow, but built to a frenzy. As a married woman, it was interesting to have an unfiltered look inside someone else’s marriage. The characters were likable at some points and irritating at others, which I guess was kinda the point. There were a few hot moments and a few truly sweet ones. Overall, a decent read.

Review: Deep Redemption by Tillie Cole

This was one of our most anticipated reads of 2016. We love Tillie Cole and we love the Hangmen. This story was a little different in that it happened primarily outside of Hangmen territory and within the confines of The Order. Being in Cain/Rider’s life was verrry interesting. I spent most of the read really sad for Cain/Rider. When we first met Rider, I really enjoyed him and thought he was a good guy. I was rooting for him. I didn’t think Cain/Rider was as hot as the other hangmen, but he was definitely willing to do whatever it took to keep his woman safe, even sacrifice himself. Definitely worth the read.

Review: Calico by Callie Hart

Calico

 

I live for Callie Hart’s bad boys. Callan was rough around the edges, but bad… no. This was an enjoyable easy read. It didn’t pack the punch that I’ve come to equate with Callie Hart. The characters were likeable, but I felt slightly disconnected from them at times. I enjoyed this book and will continue to support Callie.

Callie Hart has penned some of my favorite bad boys, so anything she releases is met with high anticipation and expectations. While this story was good, it was a departure from my original expectations. Callan was sexy and he really loved Coralie. He wasn’t a bad boy though. This was definitely an enjoyable read. It wasn’t just another love story.  There were some dark moments and some hot moments. All together a decent book.

Review: The Rose & The Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

The Rose & the Dagger (The Wrath & the Dawn, #2)

I. Love. This. Story.  There is just something about Khalid and Shazi and I can’t get enough  of them. Even though this book was over 400 pages, I still want more. This was a beautiful story that took me on a fascinating journey. It was filled with angst, action, and magic. The characters were well developed and authentic. Khalid is still as viscous as ever, but his love for Shazi knows no bounds. He is protective and soft when it comes to her. But Shazi DOES NOT need protecting. She is fierce and  strong. Khalid and Shazi are on my favorite couples list.  I wish I could have witnessed Khalid with Jalal and the Rajput once the dust settled. I felt like I didn’t  get closure there. But overall I loved this story. I will definitely be #rereading.

This story is a fantasy world so it requires some world building which can be slow, so when it took me a while to get into the story, one that I was hughly anticipating, I thought it was because of the time spent on development. After talking about it with Natasha though, I realized that I was waiting for Shazi and Khalid to get back together. The world wasn’t worth being in if they weren’t together. There was 40% of beautifully and wonderfully written torture. Once Shazi and Khalid were back together, the book flew by and was over long before i wanted it to be. I love Khalid who was softened by his unexpected love, and i loved Shazi even more. Her fierce, confident demeanor and sharp tongue were inspirational. I LOVE a strong female lead and Shazi is the epitome of such a character. Is it really over?

Review: Convicted By Aleatha Romig

EPIC! That’s what this series is. I’m going to be honest, I started Consequences a few years ago, but I wasn’t feeling it. I read the first few chapters and was like meh… I know, what was I thinking?! This series is amazing. The character development alone is worth four stars. During this series, the reader is allowed to peel each layer off these complex characters. I loved every minute of it. I had to add another shelf to my GR profile titled “favorite couples” after reading this one. Tony and Claire’s story starts off in this unbearably dark place, and ends up in a “glass house” filled with light. But the road they traveled is one I will never forget. Aleatha has made her way on my “trusted author” list after reading this series. I will read the next one eventually, but I need a break. I’m emotionally drained. Is it eventually yet? 🙂

4.5 stars

So I took my time reading this one. I kept putting it off because I was anxious from the first few pages. This series has been building and growing with each book. The character development is insane. I feel so connected to these characters that I feel their pain and their joy. I want their happy ending just as much as they do. Although Tony and Claire had a rocky start, they have become one of my favorite couples. They are hot, but they also infuriate me at times. This series is definitely a must read!!
