Review: Double Down

Double Down Double Down by Alessandra Torre
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Final Score - 4.5 Stars!

I love reading book series and I have to admit, I was a little nervous about what possible direction this book could go after reading the first.  It wasn't a sense of disappointment that had me in fear, but rather that after the events of the last book, Bell and Dario wouldn't get their HEA.  Needless to say, I worried for naught!  It was just the journey to get there that left me reeling with all the twists and turns. 

Once again, Ms. Torre's writing style sucked me in and I remained so until the climatic end.
She has simple outdone herself!  The pace, the engagement, the drama ... had me on the edge of my seat.  And as always, the sex scenes left me panting. 

I was saddened that secondary characters such as Rick, Lance, and Meredith weren't around as much - but after I finished the book I understood why they took a significant back seat to the main character focus.  I do hope we see a spin off series with these characters as I feel that there is story for them to be written (*hint, HINT).  The introduction of a new character - Laurent - left me intrigued.  I wanted more a backstory to him and his exact relationship with Dario.  Hopefully, he'll be considered as well for a spin-off book?

The chemistry between Bell and Dario - whoa!  A definite page turner and pant inducer!  Their devotion towards each other in the face of the events from the last book just solidified for me that this couple just can't be stopped.   I knew this book was going to be great and I was not disappointed! 

Now, can we talk about those spin-off books?

Review: Mister Tonight

Mister Tonight Mister Tonight by Kendall Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Final Score - 4.5 Stars!

How does one ring in the fun to their 30th birthday?  Well, if your Kate ... it consists of making eye contact with a hot guy, getting slightly inebriated, and then following him back to his place for a little fun between the sheets.  What's a quick way to ruin said birthday fun?  Your hookup's daughter walking in on you both ...

Hunter and Kate meet at a bar.  The attraction is instantaneous and neither one can forget about the other.  Especially since their bedroom antics were interrupted.  But what's even more awkward than a four year old walking in on you?  When you show up the next day as the new tenant.  And that's when the story really picks up pace!

I loved everything about this book ... the awkward day after, the lingering awkwardness of the days, weeks, months that follow.  It was all about Hunter and Kate trying to find that balance between landlord and tenant and to see it grown into a genuine friendship and later romantic relationship ... that's what kept me glued from the beginning to the end.

Mister Tonight is chalk full of funny antics, sexy chemistry, and deep emotions.  The fast pace of the book didn't leave me feeling as if I had missed anything.  There is no drama and the characters are mature and responsible adults with no childish behavior - other than the four year old (which is to be expected).  What could be better than that?

Review: In Too Deep

In Too Deep In Too Deep by J. Kenner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Final Score - 4 Stars!

Hannah is starting a new law firm.  If only she had the money to help sign the leas as her mom and stepdad are holding it hostage.  Matthew is the owner of a gym.  He's a man who is just looking to settle down at this point in his life - wife & kids included.  What happens when a meddling sister intervenes?  A true friends to lovers story that's what! 

Loved Matthew & Hannah's story.  It was the perfect wind down to the Man of the Month series as there are just 2 bachelors left.
