Our Little Secret by Rachael Stewart

OUR LITTLE SECRET UK cover

A little secret sexy fun
Under the Tuscan sun!

It’s her best mate’s wedding week – and Faye Davenport is celebrating with a skinny dip under the Tuscan moon. Except she’s not alone. The sexy Italian dish is Rafael Perez – her mate’s off-limits older brother. But now it’s too late. This illicit, irresistible fire is already out of control…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Oh my gosh!!
She is the maid of honour, he is the brides forbidden older brother but things are never that simple, are they? 
Faye is a character who has been hurt in the past but who still believes in love, however her best friend is getting married in Tuscany and she is determined to have fun, and if she finds someone for a no strings attached affair then that’s even better. She would do anything to make her friend happy but she can’t stop her attraction to Rafael. I loved seeing the Tuscan castle and the wedding week through her eyes, it made me feel almost part of the celebration which I adored. Faye is the kind of person who I would love to know which had me totally on her side and routing for her happy ending 
Rafael believes that love only causes pain but meeting Faye may change that. He is hot, sexy and the kind of man I would love to wake up next to. He has issues in his life but with Faye’s support he starts to confront them and learn what is actually important 
It wasn’t only the Tuscan sun that was super hot in this book but it made me even more hooked and pulled into Faye and Rafaels world 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a steamy romance in an amazing location with some fabulous characters and a lot of drama that will keep you on your toes

Unwrapping the Best Man by Rachael Stewart

Unwapping The Best Man Cover

On the first night of Christmas, her sexy crush finally gave to her—an unbelievably hot night! Now she’s ready for nights two, three and four… Unwrap the steamy sequel to Getting Dirty by Rachael Stewart.

I’ve lusted after brawny, gorgeously rough Jackson Black for six lust-fueled, unrequited years. But Jackson has rules, and the big one is “no getting involved with clients” of his elite London sex club. Including me. But our best friends are getting married, and for one deliciously hot night, the maid of honor and best man agree…what happens in the Scottish Highlands, stays in the Scottish Highlands.

It was everything I wanted and more…until the complete jerk disappears during the night.

Now it’s Christmas, and I have a plan to prove to Jackson Black just how much I don’t care, that he doesn’t turn me on like a Christmas tree. Only Operation: Naughty Elf is backfiring big-time. That aching need for his touch is stronger than ever. It’s painfully clear that I want more than just a fling from the untouchable Jackson Black.

I have one chance to unwrap the best man. But is this sexy, guarded grinch about to steal my heart…or break it?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cait has wanted Jackson since she met him 6 years ago but his rules say no but a Scottish castle at their best friends wedding could change everything 
I loved Cait, she is a strong character who knows what she wants. She is confident but also wary and the wedding is a chance for her to get what she wants. Thing is she isn’t sure that that will be enough 
Jackson has been hurt in the past and it still affects him and his behaviour. It doesn’t stop him wanting Cait and his internal struggle is a huge part of the story which made me adore him even more 
I absolutely loved this book, it has everything you could want, heat, drama, personal struggles and Christmas! Cait loves Christmas and her joy for the holiday season slowly infects Jackson (and me), this along with so much else made it a book that I couldn’t put down. Another fantastic read from Ms Stewart! 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a festive romance with characters you will adore and a fabulous story

Losing Control by Rachael Stewart

LosingControl_Dare_0920_V2

Losing Control

She watched him walk away…

…and now he’s back to claim her!

A family feud forced me to walk away from the woman of my dreams, Alexa—but I didn’t expect her to betray me by falling into my brother’s arms. Now, after a tragic accident, I’ve returned home to find Alexa leading the family business…and the chemistry between us is hotter than ever. The sparks reignite our electrifying connection, but can we learn to trust each other again?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

When I saw that I could have a chance to review the new Rachel Stewart book I couldn’t say no and it certainly didn’t disappoint, in fact it was as fabulous as I know it would be! 
Alexa has a secret that resulted in her marrying her best friend, the brother of the man who stole her heart but now he is back in her life and things are getting interesting… 
I liked Lexi, she was a strong character and her determination to make the family business work is so key. Lexi’s secret is something that has affected her for years as did Cain leaving but she decides that he must know, she can’t keep it to herself anymore. Seeing Lexi struggle just made her more human to me and more than once I wanted to give her a hug
Cain took longer for me to warm to, he is so much about control and getting back what he thinks he deserves which makes him seem such a hard character on the outside however he hides his feelings well which at times makes him seem harder and more distant than he is. He is a guarded character who knows what he wants even if he struggles to put it into words or even at times to think it, I could almost feel the denial rolling off of him at times which drew me in further 
I’m not going to lie, I did find the story of Cain and Lexi being together and then her marrying his brother and now he’s back fighting her desire for him a bit weird but as I read more and understood why Lexi had done what she had done it started to make a lot more sense and very quickly I accepted it. It’s not conventional but I can understand why and without it the story wouldn’t work, it wouldn’t flow
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a hot story with a lot of drama, undercurrents and characters who will have you tearing your hair out and then loving in quick succession

Seduced by a Steele by Brenda Jackson

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book so wasn’t what I was expecting but it caught my attention and had me wanting to find out what would happen next
Sloan has escaped her rich parents and her arranged marriage to a man but has been cut off financially. Her determination to be independent endeared her to be and I loved her as a character. As the story progressed, I could feel her becoming more human and a better version of herself
Mercury on the other hand initially saw Sloan as the person driving his stolen car and someone who needed protecting given that everything in her life went very wrong very fast. Whilst I liked the protective nature of his character I struggled much more with the rest of him, at times he didn’t seem as real but that could just be my attention so caught up with Sloan’s development as a character that I missed out on some of Mercury’s 
This book is well written and will draw the reader in with enough twists and turns to keep your attention
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a sexy romance with a heroine full of strength and independence not wanting to rely on anyone

Getting Dirty by Rachael Stewart

Getting Dirty UK Cover

Sometimes digging up the dirt

Means getting deliciously dirty…

I always work for the good guys. My job was simple: get the dirt on Coco Lauren, a princess of a socialite who talks—and plays—dirty. But I kissed her. I tasted her. Uncovered the tantalising woman beneath the polished façade. And she undid me in every way. Now I’m the bad guy. But how do I tell Coco the truth…when coming clean means losing her?

 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Another outstanding book by an amazing author 

I loved Coco, she is so not what Ash expects, the spoiled little rich girl, but instead has hidden depths, does a lot of charity work and cares for people. Coco is the kind of character who made me smile, she charms her way in but what she does is motivated by family and her love for her dying grandmother 
Ash on the other hand feels like a full on bad boy, even though he isn’t. Unlike so many books his feelings and emotions are so well defined in the parts written from his point of view and this really helped me to bond with him. 
Although sex is a big part of Ash and Cocos relationship it doesn’t take over the story but is instead used as the way the characters get closer emotionally as well
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a hot sexy read that has family values at the core with a hint of risk underneath

Naughty Or Nice by Rachael Stewart

naughtyornice

She’s setting the terms…

In business and pleasure!

Lucas Waring was my brother’s best friend—before he broke my heart and betrayed my family. Yet one glance from those dark, intense eyes, and that bolt of aching need returns. Now Lucas wants my business. But the nice Eva he knew is gone forever and naughty Eva wants her cake, and a taste of deliciously hot Lucas, too. Only my heart’s about to pull the biggest betrayal of all…

 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I loved Lucas and Eva’s story right from the beginning, the writing style pulled me in and had me hooked to the extent that I read it straight through in one sitting and I want to go back and read it again

Eva isn’t afraid to ask and if necessary fight Lucas to get what she wants, but she is also bound by her family and restricted in parts by her relationship with them and their feelings towards Lucas

Lucas knows he shouldn’t want Eva and you can feel his fight throughout, the keeping of promises a big part of his motivator. He respects Eva and that really shows, he treats he as the adult he is and not as the child he knew

I adored the writing style and the sexier scenes really worked, they flowed as an essential part of the story rather than them being something that had to go in and they really made the story work

I would recommend this book to those who love a sexier story with fight from the main characters and personalities that won’t let them be pushed down!

ps; how do I get Lucas on my Christmas delivery list from Santa please Rachel!

His Innocent Seduction by Clare Connelly

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Millie is on the round the world trip she promised her dying mum she would do before settling down in Australia. Working in a bar in Dublin she meets Michael, a high flying barrister, and attraction flares.

Millie doesn’t want to be a 23 year old virgin anymore and she wants Michael to be her first lover. Shocked but thrilled by her proposal Michael agrees, but he has some conditions that she must follow

Their relationship burns hot and can it stop Millie leaving Dublin and going to Paris? Will it make other of them change their minds on love and being together forever?

I did enjoy this book and I really like the split of voices, Michael seemed like the dominant voice, the dominant narrator and for me that really worked. My brain likes to understand things from both sides and in this story I was, it also made it possible to see why the characters were doing what they were and to get closer to them.

Clare’s writing was skilful and she brought the characters off the page and like they were real people. I would have liked to see more of Michael and Millie when they weren’t in the bedroom and the ending felt a bit rushed but apart from that it was a good book

I would recommend this book to those who want to go on that once in a lifetime trip and follow their dreams no matter what

Pleasure Payback by Zara Cox

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Love love love!!

Super hot and sexy with some spice!

Neve meets Damien in a bar, the night before she expects to close a huge deal to expand her hotel chain and they spend an amazing night together

When the deal falls through and she finds out that Damien (business man extraordinaire) is behind it she is furious and vows to get revenge

Fast forward 2 years and Neve’s hotel chain is flourishing and she is bought onto a TV show, UK readers think something similar to Dragons Den, when she will work closely with Damien but the heat between them is still there, can they overcome it or will things get out of control?

I really enjoyed this book, Neve and Damien fight bringing more chemistry and I found the ending quite satisfying. There is a good split between their voices and points of view making it easier to read and connect with them both

I found myself keeping on reading to find out what would happen between them!

I would defiantly recommend this book to those who enjoy a sexy read with some fight and a good story running through

Take Me On by Dylan Rose

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Hot, steamy and amazing and that’s just Miami!

New York yoga studio owner Mackenzie (Kenzie) is in Miami to sell her shares in a rum distillery she inherited from her great aunt Lily. On arrival in Miami she meets a mystery man at the hotel bar and invites him up to her room to learn some yoga poses mixed in with an evening of passion

They embark on a hot and steamy affair and Kenzie is taken by surprise when her mystery man, Antonio, turns out to be the person she is planning onselling her shares to

The sparks fly and once Kenzie see’s the distillery she see’s its potential and realises she doesn’t want to sell but instead see if she can make it work, with a few helpful faces along the way

I don’t normally read Dare but this debut by Dylan Rose is amazing and well worth a read.

I will be totally honest and say that I struggled with the flow of the story some of the time but still enjoyed reading about Kenzie and Antonio. Dylan’s writing drew me in and caught my attention and I did binge read it all in one go

I would recommend this book to anyone who would enjoys a sexy read with a slightly unconventional story line that will have you intrigued and wanting to keep reading to find out what happens next
