Sweet Possession

A sassy, in-your-face baker. A panty-stealing, dirty-talking accountant. And a bathroom quickie that changed their lives forever.

Wedding hook-ups never amount to anything.

Unless that hook-up knocks you on your ass.

For Dylan Sparks and Reese Carroll, the big day can’t arrive soon enough. Dylan, stressed to the max from overbearing mothers and last minute preparations, struggles to keep her sanity. As for Reese, he’s fighting to not only keep his bride-to-be safe from creepy investors, but also to make it to the actual wedding day without losing his mind in the process.

Throw in a crazy group of friends, and a bachelor/bachelorette party weekend getaway, and you have a recipe for the sweetest wedding of the year.

Reese Carroll and Dylan Sparks cordially invite you to read Sweet Possession.

Teaser Excerpt:                                                           !!Spoiler!!

 “”What’s up, cupcake? Everything okay?” I hold out the flower in front of me and see Joey’s face contort into a snarl.

God damn it,Billy. One fucking gesture would be nice. I’m a major fan of flowers.”

Much later, just before the wedding ceremony.. 

“Reese Carroll. You are not allowed in here.”

‘I don’t need to come in. I just want to hear her.”

Joey looks back at me and then his eyes lose focus.”God damn it, Billy.””

 

 

 

This was the second book in the Sweet Addiction series and “God damn it, Billy” has to be my favorite line from both.

Happy Reading!

REVIEW: Lovelines

LoveLinesArrive at work at 7:58 A.M. sharp. Check. Count forty-seven steps to cubicle. Check. Arrange pens in their red-blue-black-green-purple order of importance. Check. Apply hand sanitizer before opening email. Double check.

And that’s just the first few minutes of her work day.

Thirty-one-year-old proofreader Bailey Mitchell is a slave to her tics. She inherited Obsessive Compulsive Disorder from her father, and it’s done nothing but inhibit her love life. She’s run the gamut of boyfriends—none of them willing or able to cope with her condition.

Enter 32-year-old Reece Powell, her new coworker at Beach Elite Marketing Firm. He’s more than willing to cope. He finds her habits cute and quirky… for now. Reece wins her over, and life coasts along for them until Bailey experiences a devastating blow. Tragedy exacerbates her OCD, and Reece realizes her tics aren’t so cute and quirky anymore. Just like all the others, he has the choice to leave.

But Reece isn’t like all the others.

Thoughts:  I loved it. It’s the first book by S. Walden that I’ve read and it was amazing. It was cute and heart-breaking and funny, boy was it funny and sexy; it was off the charts sexy.
When we think of OCD we think of quirky tics that some does, we find it endearing more often than not, but we don’t seem to realize that it’s an illness, a disorder that can’t be done away with by pills and rehab, but a life long journey. It was eye-opening to get that insight into what Bailey’s life is like and the life of her family and friend(s) that had to live with someone with OCD.
Reece makes me believe even more than I did before that there is someone out there for everyone, who else do you know gets turned on by having their SO perform a tic?
Soledad, the perfect neighbor, I sometimes wished that although Bailey didn’t know what she was saying, I would, and if it was in French and not Spanish I could definitely tell if Walden was just bullshitting all her lines, I doubt it (what I could understand seemed to fit with what was going on).

My favorite thing about this book was how realistic it was, not just Bailey’s OCD but her relationships with her dad and her mom and her sister, and more importantly Erica (reading their interactions reminded me of similar my interactions with my best friend). The way everyone spoke, it was stilted by writing it flowed, conversations, terms everything was written picture perfect, you could see frame by frame what was happening who was saying what. I knew Christopher was black before they even had to say anything! It was in his language and his mannerisms that Walden somehow managed to portray with dialogue (but thank you for telling us anyways!).

This is the first of Wilimington series, the others could be about Christopher or Camden or Taylor, lets not forget Erica’s new secret wielding employee. which I would love to read, I’ll be looking out for S. Walden because no matter the book I know I’ll pick up the next thing written by her, it was that good.

12. Waiting on Wednesday – Chase Me (Broke and Beautiful #1)

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:  March 17th 2015 

Goodreads Synopsis:

College drop-out, Roxy Cumberland, moved to New York with dreams of becoming an actress, but her dwindling bank account is quickly putting the kibosh on that fantasy. To make some quick cash, she signs up to perform singing telegrams. Her first customer is a gorgeous, cocky Manhattan trust-funder if she ever laid eyes on one. And what could be more humiliating than singing an ode to his junk, courtesy of his last one night stand? Maybe the fact that she’s dressed in a giant, pink bunny costume…

After a night out to celebrate winning his last case, lawyer Louis McNally II isn’t prepared for the pounding in his head or the rabbit serenading him from the front door. But the sassy wit and sexy voice of the girl behind the mask intrigues him, and one look at her stunning face—followed by a mind-blowing kiss against his doorjamb—leaves Louis wanting more.

Roxy doesn’t need a spoiled rich boy who’s had everything in life handed to him on a Tiffany platter. But there’s more to Louis than his sexy surface and he’s determined to make Roxy see it…even if it means chasing her all over NYC.

 

 

Thoughts: 

I’ve yet to read anything by Tessa Bailey but singing telegram? I’m interested.

Happy Reading!

Tell me, what are you waiting on?

11. Waiting on Wednesday – Make It Last (Bowler University, #3)

 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:  January 6 2015

I know it just came out yesterday but I’m still waiting on it to be in my arms, whether physically or in my iBooks. The previous two books in this series took me by surprise as they were the first books by Megan Erickson that I picked up. I’m excited to unravel the mystery that is Cam Ruiz.

Goodreads Synopsis:

After graduating from Bowler University, the last place Cam Ruiz ever expected to find himself is his hometown. A bad job as a bouncer and worry over his mom’s health make living in Paradise anything but. There’s only one thing that can make his return any harder—running into the only girl he’s ever loved.

Tate Ellison made a mistake when she was eighteen, one that cost her the best thing she’s ever had. She’s always hoped the regret of losing Cam would fade over time. Too bad it’s only grown. She took comfort in the fact she’d never have to face him again, so his presence in Paradise throws her for a loop.

The pull between them is instant and when the truth of what happened years ago tumbles out, they share a mind-blowing kiss…which leads to more. But the past has a way of repeating itself. When all the cards are on the table, Cam and Tate must decide what they are willing to do to make it last.

 

I’m so glad to be back! :)

What are you waiting on?
