Other books I've been reading this month

 
Asking for Trouble
Line of Duty #4
Tessa Bailey
Publisher: Entangled Brazen
Publication date: 25th November 2013


Tessa Bailey's Line of Duty series is probably one of my favourites from Entangled, each hero gets hotter and hotter!

Brent is a cop and explosives expert moonlighting also as a mechanic to support his family, Hayden is a rich chick with an overbearing society mother, she also runs a charity organisation for kids. He thinks she's an aloof pampered princess, she thinks he's a crude and infuriating wham-bam let me get back to playing Grand Theft Auto, ma'am type but underneath the sarcastic banter there is a real opposites attract simmering appreciation
 
I loved this enemies to lovers tale, Brent's particular brand of alpha maleness and dirty talking is worth a 5 out of 5 rating alone and a few re-reads! Their scenes together are scorching hot. I really liked that even as they started to learn more about each other it wasn't all plain sailing they still argued, fought and made up and the making up was really gooood. I also really liked that Hayden gave Brent as good as she got in and out of the bedroom despite the pressure she was under, and Brent (bless his enormous size 15 manly socks) was more than man enough to let her handcuff him and take over. Loved it, 5 out of 5. 
 
 
Ross Siblings #4
Cherrie Lynn
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Publication date: 17th December 2013
 
The Ross Siblings series is another steamy contemporary romance series that I love, I've enjoyed every single book devoured each one in a few hours and finished each one smiling.
 
Gabriella was jilted on her wedding day and has come back to her home town to lick her wounds and get her life back on track before heading back to medical school. Deciding to finally get a tattoo Gabby heads to her brother Brian's tattoo shop but he turns her down so the new guy Ian steps up and designs a beautiful phoenix tattoo that Gaby instantly adores.
 
There's an obvious attraction between Gabby and Ian, although Ian is wary of going anywhere near his new bosses sister who he knows has had a hard time recently when Gabby deliberately turns up at the bar Ian frequents and tells him exactly what she wants the attraction wins out.
 
Although I loved Gabby and Ian's steamy encounter (Cherrie Lynn does write good steam!) it was the very different characters of Gabby and Ian that made Take Me On such a good read. Gabby is a little older than Ian she was ready to settle down and get married to her doctor before being humiliated on her wedding day, Ian gave her the opportunity to have her one night with a sexy, tattooed, Harley-riding hunk and get over her recent heartache. When their one night stand results in some serious consequences Ian wants to step up and be there for Gabby but just isn't sure in himself if he can ever be enough for her. Add into the mix Gabby's overprotective parents who are worried that Ian is going to take advantage of Gabby and Gabby's ex-fiancĂ© who wants back in her life I really felt for Gabby and the pressure she was under.
 
Take Me On is a great ending to a fantastic series, it's got the necessary steam factor and a great story alongside it. 5 out of 5.
