The Hook Up by Kristen Callihan 

The rules: no kissing on the mouth, no staying the night, no telling anyone, and above all… No falling in love.

Anna Jones just wants to finish college and figure out her life. Falling for star quarterback Drew Baylor is certainly not on her to do list. Confident and charming, he lives in the limelight and is way too gorgeous for his own good. If only she could ignore his heated stares and stop thinking about doing hot and dirty things with him. Easy right?

Too bad he’s committed to making her break every rule…

Football has been good to Drew. It’s given him recognition, two National Championships, and the Heisman. But what he really craves is sexy yet prickly Anna Jones. Her cutting humor and blatant disregard for his fame turns him on like nothing else. But there’s one problem: she’s shut him down. Completely.

That is until a chance encounter leads to the hottest sex of their lives, along with the possibility of something great. Unfortunately, Anna wants it to remain a hook up. Now it’s up to Drew to tempt her with more: more sex, more satisfaction, more time with him. Until she’s truly hooked. It’s a good thing Drew knows all about winning.

All’s fair in love and football…Game on.

Teaser Excerpt:The hook up 

‘”Hey there, Big Red.”

My world grinds to a loud screeching halt. Big Red? What the ever-loving knuckle fuck?’

Waiting On Wednesday“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine , that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. Woo! 

 

 

 

 

Publication:  October 2014 

Goodreads Synopsis:

He’s always saved her. Now she’s going to return the favor…

Gray Duffy never thought he’d end up as the co-lead guitarist of Oblivion, one of the hottest rock bands in the country. Even better? He’s sharing the experience with his best friend, Jazz. Since the day she’d showed up as his family’s new foster kid, Gray has protected her. Loved her. And not just platonically either. After all these years of wanting her in his bed, he still doesn’t know what it would be like to have her mouth on his.

Except for that one time. The time he’d shared her with Nick. The best worst night of his life.

Now they’re living their dream. They’re making music together and spending every waking moment trapped in tight quarters. With success at their fingertips, the time is right for him to finally make his move toward the woman he needs.

He just never figured he would lose control. Or that she would find out.

They’ve loved each other through everything. But what if this time love just isn’t enough?

Thoughts: 

Rocked was so good!

Happy Reading!

Tell me, what are you waiting on?

Shame On You by Tara Sivec 

War veteran Kennedy O’Brien is in the business of sticking it to the man—or at least any man who tries to cross a woman. After she returned home from Afghanistan and caught her husband in bed with the nanny, Kennedy lost her faith in men and started Fool Me Once Investigations with her two best friends. After all, there’s no better bounty hunter than a woman scorned.

When Kennedy takes a case to slap cuffs on a bail jumper turned dog-napper, she figures it’ll be an easy paycheck. But trouble has a way of finding Kennedy. Enter the last man on the planet she’d willingly choose as a partner: her cheating ex-husband’s best friend, Griffin Crawford.

As gorgeous as he is unwelcome, Griffin has always had a thing for Kennedy, and after keeping quiet about her ex’s cheating, he’ll do anything to earn back her trust. Whether or not she wants to admit it, Kennedy will need help as the case of the Chihuahua thief spirals out of control. Griffin may be just her man—in more ways than one

Teaser Excerpt:

 “Kennedy!” he whisper-yells to me as he covers the mouthpiece with his hand. “This guy says he’ll pay fifteen hundred dollars to bust your back door. I don’t know why he’d pay that much to break a door, but I’m going to tell him you’re game. We can always get it fixed later. I didn’t realize prostitutes made so much money for weird stuff. I thought they gave happy endings. I’m in the wrong business. I should be a pimp.”

I groan loudly at my dad as he goes back to his phone call. 

 

 

 

 

Haha I loved this teaser, what did you think?

For my fellow Canadians, hope you had a wonderful Gobble Gobble Day

REVIEW: Killing Honor (Lucky Thirteen #1)

Navy SEAL Brody Battles’ last mission ended with him shot twice. He’s made enemies he’d like to forget ever existed all over the world. He’s more than ready to go home to the family he left behind, but when he returns, he faces sleepless nights, a possible security breach and the fear that his family has moved on without him.

Marrying her childhood sweetheart sounds like a fairy tale dream come true, but not for Devyn. Thanks to his job, her husband has been off on a secret mission for so long, he’s never even seen his daughters in person. But now he’s back, and the fairy tale life is in sight, but Devyn’s not sure the man that returned is the same man who left.

Stitching their broken family back together proves difficult when nightmares and secrets build a wall between them. And while they’re adjusting to being a family again, an enemy waits in the shadows, salivating for the sweet taste of revenge.

Thoughts:
I liked it, in the sense that I like Addison and would love to read her story because she seems to have some pretty badass secrets. I don’t know of anyone who gets shot in the leg, being all, I think I got shot, that sucks. She’s too tough to be ordinary, I’m working on some theories.

I must also say that discerning who infiltrated their security was way too easy, and made me lose my interest– Once I figured out who Jane was, there really was no point reading the meat of the book, just skip to the last few chapters, you’re not missing anything — which is bad because you should want to read the entire book without having figured it all out within the first 100 pages.

Devyn on the other hand is not the type of female lead I want to read about. Yes, there is nothing wrong with being a housewife but a housewife with no other aspiration other than being a housewife is not my idea of a good read.
I originally thought her shunning the Navy SEALs wives club was a show of strength twisted as it may sound, but even not integrating yourself with them, you are still one of them and I would hate to be the one who is picked as a target because I’m so impressionable. I mean, ya you were stupid but who are you going to trust now? That sucks.

My two issues with Devyn.
– You married a military man, a SEAL for crying out loud, you know his job is going to be dangerous, and for some reason once you experience up close and personal (not saying shock and fear and everything else is warranted) but you can’t seriously expect him to give up his job right? Give up being a military man, and yes I could understand a wife asking a husband to do that because, hey danger came a knocking on my door because of what you do, but that wasn’t the impression I got from Devyn it was a more, I want you home by my side all the time because I’m scared to be without you.

WAIT! this goes into issue 2
– I mentioned earlier Devyn as a housewife and lack of aspiration, right, well this is proof: “A stupid cow of a housewife who has no discernible skill set for the real world.” That’s not even the worst part, the worst part is this: “Nothing she was saying was wrong. I had always been a housewife. I’d always been scared to lose Brody, not just because I loved him, but also because I had not future without him.” See what I mean? never mind the fact that she actually pulled the trigger, which I’m chalking up to reflex and not intention. Devyn just does not scream, strong independent woman to me. And I like reading about strong independent yet vulnerable women.

So although it was good, it wasn’t great. I’d probably only read Addison’s story and stop there unless someone else pops up in that story that piques me interest.

Last Line: “I’m not a sir,” he replied. “I work for a living.” He wrapped his arms back around me, this time so I faced the girls on the floor. He laid his chin on my shoulder and together we watched the girls play until they were bored of the blocks and went in search of more trouble to get into.

WWW Wednesday #20

WWW WednesdayHey guys! Look what I found! A weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should be Reading blog here on WordPress.

Lots of new author reads in the past few weeks and I’m sure there are more to come.


• What are you currently reading?

It’s like all those books you’ve read before, girl wants life-long guy friend, doesn’t know she exists, enlists outside parties help and falls for him without realizing. Somehow the same old story line never gets old.

 

• What did you recently finish reading? 

Really long read, but worth it. Still not sure how I really feel about the authors writing style. Review to come.

 

 

 

• What do you think you’ll read next?

I have no idea.

 

Open to Suggestions

Happy Reading!
