Alex in Wonderland by Max Monroe | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comAlex in Wonderland by Max Monroe | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comAlex in Wonderland by Max Monroe | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: I am a huge fan of the duo that calls themselves Max Monroe and I’m sure we all fell in love with them when we fell in love with Kline and Georgia and everything Billionaire Bad Boys. . .we swooned, we escaped, our toes may have even curled, and we certainly laughed our asses off, but my warning before I get started is this. . .Alex in Wonderland is not Billionaire Bad Boys, I suppose I should probably elaborate a bit. If I had read the entire Billionaire series, then read this book, without first knowing who wrote either. . .I would’ve never guessed that they were written by the same author. While there were portions of Wonderland that were reminiscent of the wit and humor that Max Monroe brings to the pages, this story was so different than what I was expecting. . .but don’t worry, different was good. . .real, real good.

Alex in Wonderland will be told through the POV’s of both Alex and Matt.

Let’s kick this off with Alex Little. Needing a restart, Alex is fairly new to the L.A. area, transplanting herself from San Diego. We meet her after she was fired from her job as a bartender, recently picking up a job as Sparkles the Rabbit. Working for a princess party company was never high on her aspiration list, but bills need to get paid and food needs to be eaten, so at this point, rabbits can’t be choosy. But no worries, if it wasn’t for a sweaty ass. . .her life would’ve never changed.

Matt Hadder lost his mother, his only parent when he was just six years old. And because of this life altering event, John Hadder waltzes in and introduces himself. . .as Matt’s father. Matt Hadder is the head of Wonderland, Inc., an organization that can do about anything one would want and get about anything one would need. And no clarification is needed on “anything”, it literally means. . .anything.

Eventually the likes of Matt will meet up with Alex and all of this goes down when Alex is masquerading as Sprinkles the Rabbit. Well, she is actually sitting in her bra and panties and Sprinkles is laying next to her. . .apparently it’s hot as fuck in those costumes. Without giving too much away let’s just say that Alex may or may not have heard something that wasn’t meant for her ears and it’s up to Matt to find out if the rabbit knows anything, because if she does, he may or may not have to “take care” of it, and by “take care”, I mean it may be time for a BXTCHE to swim . When he finds her sitting in nothing but her underwear, Alex hits Matt’s radar and she has certainly piqued his curiosity. 

Alex’s life takes a giant step up when Matt offers her a job and she accepts. For Matt, one of the reasons for the job offer is to keep a close eye on a liability, for Alex one of the reasons she accepts is pure intrigue. That intrigue, well that and the need for nutrition. The interest only grows when she has the opportunity to witness her first Wonderland party and decides to come back for more.

If that seems vague, it’s because it it. Even if I wanted to tell you BXTCHES what it is that Wonderland does, I couldn’t, it was too much to keep up with. Just know that not all is on the up and up and there is a shit ton of money involved. It’s got lots of drugs, parties, pleasure girls, and not to mention a presidential race is at stake, so is your curiosity peeking out yet? And that BXTCHES is all I’m gonna share, but just know this. . .expect the unexpected.

Max Monroe may be brilliant when it comes to creating a leading couple that makes your heart patter a bit, but they are as equally brilliant when it comes to creating a cast to support those leads and Wonderland gives us a bit of everything. There are those you will love and there are those you will hate and those that you will love to hate. The layers that each character created didn’t allow for downtime. Chapter after chapter, page after page, you will be longing to get just a little bit more and not only from Alex and Matt, but we get Aunt Delores and Deena (the cat) and Cal and Jessie Cat and a whole slew of individuals that will keep you turning the page and make it almost impossible to put down.

Once you dive into Matt Hadder’s inner dialogue, there will be no doubts left when it comes to his bedroom abilities. And once you get a peek inside of Alex’s, there will be no doubts left that she is dying to have Matt throw her up against the wall and wear her out. And when the time comes that they get a taste of one another, their chemistry is crazy hot. Max Monroe was able to bring together the raw passionate fucking that accompanies lust mixed with tender, sweet moments that come with love. What a fan-fucking-tastic cocktail that was, one that I could imbibe over and over again.

I’m not sure what I was expecting when I first dove into Wonderland. I think a part of my imagination had a desire for the laugh out loud humor we got with the Billionaire gang and while I’ll admit humor certainly accompanied the likes of Matt and Alex, though more Alex. . .it was different, don’t worry it was in a good way. But when it was all said and done, the last page was turned and the hangover had set, Max Monroe did what they do best and that’s create characters that you wish you knew and a story that made it impossible to escape from. Bxtches Be Reading5 Star Read for Bxtches Be ReadingAlex in Wonderland by Max Monroe | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comMax Monroe | www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBeautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBeautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: Look, if you have yet to be swept away by the words that fly from Vi Keeland’s fingertips. . .well, you need to jump on board that train, ASAP. I think she has a total of 17 books (that includes collaborations) and I have fallen in love with 11, though you wouldn’t know it based on how many reviews I have done, but I promise, it’s been love. And if you think she flies great solo, then check her out when she buddies up, it is heart stopping. While she does have some series, the majority of her books are stand-alones, which bodes well for those of us who have the patience of a toddler and just can’t wait for a part two. Well, with all of that out of the way, let’s dive in.

Beautiful Mistake will be mostly told through the POV of Rachel, but we will get some POV’s from the teenage Caine as well as some chapters from the current version.

We might as well start from the beginning, even though I’m sure you have read the blurb. . .Rachel and BFF (Ava) both work at O’Leary’s, a local bar and on this particular night, Ava is busying drowning in her sorrows via her liver. Why? Because guys are assholes. Well one guy to be precise. . .Owen. The one whom Ava was dating. . .the one who told Ava that she could be the one. . .the one who Ava ran into while walking through the park. . .the one who was walking with his wife and kid in said park. See? Asshole. Now Ava is drunk and Rachel has ran into the Asshole and in BFF solidarity, she is about tell him exactly how he feels. The problem? The one who got the wrath of Rachel wasn’t actually Owen. The lesson? Never trust a drunk girl’s ability to distinguish colors.

Rachel is late for her TA job. . .with a new professor. . .one who hates tardiness. Any guess on who this new professor is? Yeah, it’s Owen the asshole, well who Rachel thought was Owen the asshole, it’s actually Caine, Rachel’s hot new professor and Rachel’s semester just took an interesting turn.

I’m quite sure you can certainly see what lane this story is going to go down. Hot professor, beautiful TA, sexual tension. . .I mean there really is only one correct way to turn, and that turn was never in question. The question is how many roadblocks will there be once the turn is made.

Caine doesn’t have the best history when it comes to TA’s, but what he is laying down (both figuratively and literally) with Rachel seems to be plotting a different course. Now, as much as it’s expected that the two of them will come together and it’s no spoiler that they will. . .there has been a web that has been weaved. . .one that is so tangled, you will wonder how it will ever be unraveled. . .just hang with it. . .this story will bring the humor we love. . .the angst we crave. . .the drama that drives us crazy. . .and the love that makes us fall. In short, it is Vi Keeland.

I am usually a sucker for an ensemble cast, but now and again one will get me where the sole focus is the two we’re supposed to fall for and I find that is all I need. That’s not to say that Vi Keeland didn’t write some phenomenal supporting characters, she did, but they are ones that are there to enhance, not spotlight. The BFF, the boss, the ex-boyfriend/friend/potential future boyfriend (all the same guy), all fantastically written, but whose presence continue to add to some very meaty layers in a beautifully told story. There really wasn’t a time while I was turning pages, that I craved the story of any of those written to support. And truth? I didn’t need it. This wasn’t the type of story that could hold the weight of a supporting character being moved front and center. 

If there is one thing that Vi Keeland excels at, it is how to write a scene that gives you goose bumps. I mean she excels at just about everything on the page, but good Lord can she make your skin tingle. It takes a lot to really blow my mind and Caine and Rachel did that and more. The sexual tension that builds and builds between them grows so thick, that either the bizness gets had or something is going to blow. Everything from the tension, to the dirty talk (YUM!), to the actual act. . .it’s hot, it’s passion, it’s love, it was addicting.

Each and every time I see a preview of a Vi Keeland book come across my Facebook feed, I get downright giddy. I know that whatever storyline lies ahead, I will love it. . .I know that whatever feisty lady unfolds, I will love it. . .I know that whatever alpha is within the pages, I will love it. She does not fuck around with her words, she is able to infiltrate you imagination and take you on a journey that leaves you surprised and exhausted and exuberant and in love. We give lots of love to the men between the covers and it’s deserving, Caine makes one helluva #bookboyfriend, but that BXTCH takes leading lady to a whole other level. Rachel sets the bar and she sets it high and for that, I say. . .Thank you Vi Keeland. 

The only thing I can think to say in order to convince you to check it out, well maybe two things, because HELL-OOO, look at that cover, that could and maybe should be reason enough. But, as crazy as it sounds for me to just say “read it”, that’s what I’m going with. Read it, because she has yet to let me down. Read it, because we all need a summer vacay, even if it’s only in our mind. Read it, because it could be time that you just trust a BXTCH. Bxtches Be Reading5 Star Read for Bxtches Be ReadingBeautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

Dr. ER (St. Luke’s Docuseries Series, Book #2) by Max Monroe

Dr. ER (St. Luke's Docuseries, Book #2) by Max Monroe | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

Dr. ER (St. Luke's Docuseries, Book #2) by Max Monroe | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comDr. ER (St. Luke's Docuseries, Book #2) by Max Monroe | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comDr. ER (St. Luke's Docuseries, Book #2) by Max Monroe | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: I am so about to shock the shit out of all you BXTCHES and even I can’t believe that I’m about to utter type the following, but. . .this book can absolutely be read as a stand-alone. While I loved Dr. OB (book #1) and I highly recommend that you read it, the only thing really tying these two book together is the reality show that the two (and eventually three) doctors become a part of and even that is just a whisper in this story. Other than that, the main ones from the first installment do make some appearances, but it’s not enough to take away from Scott, Harlow and any other facet that makes this book so fucking great. So, let’s get started, shall we?

Dr. ER will be told through the POV of both Harlow and Scott.

If you skipped straight over the introduction to Will (book #1), no worries, Max Monroe does a good job with a quick hello during the prologue. This is where we also meet Scott Shepard or what he soon becomes known as. . .Dr. ERotic. Now, I’m all about being somewhat of a polite BXTCH, so in case the whole OB/GYN scene wasn’t for you or maybe you’re just now discovering the genius that is Max Monroe and you decided that this is where you want to start, we are gonna have to play a quick game of catch-up. Will Cummings, Scott Shepard and Nick Raines (coming to us in much greater detail on August 29) have all agreed to allow cameras to follow them around and star in a docuseries. It didn’t go too well for Will, but he did get the girl in the end, so all is good. Now it’s Dr. Shepard’s turn, but I think we should kick things off with Harlow, our feisty leading lady.

Frances Harlow Paige is busy living the single life in NYC. She’s got herself a tried and true bestie in Amanda, her parents are happily divorced and she works as a columnist at Gossip magazine, a job she isn’t too thrilled about, but does pay the bills. Except for the fact that it’s been ages since a dick has put a smile on her face, life ain’t too terribly shabby. The needing a dick to put a smile on her face is where we first meet up with Harlow.

Long story short, Harlow needed to get laid, like yesterday, so in her desperation, she agrees to go out on a date with Barron Alexander Conrad III-if someone with a pretentious name like that even knows how to work a cock, I’m gonna need to see it. . .live. Anywho, a vagina that hasn’t been well used lately, will suffer through just about anything, because Harlow’s goal is definitely one that ends with shouty affirmations to our Lord and Savior, but instead all she gets instead is a gash on the forehead and the shouty words to our Lord and Savior takes on a different tone.

I hope you can see where this story is going, well at least see where part of it is going. After Barron the third passes out, too much blood and all that jazz, Harlow finds herself in the St. Luke’s emergency room. Any guess who the head of the ER department and the doctor on duty is? 

So far being the star of a reality tv show has its perks, the job is going wonderfully and the women are lining up. . .when he gets the privilege of sewing up one Harlow Paige, his interest had certainly been piqued, too bad hers wasn’t.

Columnist for a gossip magazine. . .hot doctor who happens to also be the star of a reality tv show. . .this shit can basically write itself, but considering that it’s what Harlow does, then we’ll just leave it our leading lady.

Scott doesn’t do relationships, a previous bad experience has put Harlow off from making any sort of commitment. . .Harlow gets the inside scoop on one fuckhot doctor and Scott discovers that Dr.ERotic loves a good challenge and the feisty columnist is turning him on like no one previous. . .I mean c’mon this is the shit that great rom-coms are made of.

But don’t worry BXTCHES, Max Monroe does throw some drama our way, I mean you can’t fuck your way through a chunk of the population and not have some of that broken heart not come back and bite you right in the dick. And, Harlow brings her own set of luggage to the party. So, it’s not all fun and games and stitches and dicks, there’s gonna be a part of this book that may have your heart dropping a bit.

Besides the ability to tell fantastic stories, Max Monroe is brilliant when it comes to writing supporting characters. The magic was brought to us first in the Billionaire Bad Boys Series and it continues to be the case for this one. Usually when I dive into a series, I can’t wait to catch up with the ones that I have already fallen for, but we didn’t get that a lot here, it was brief and I wasn’t even disappointed. And to be honest, I wouldn’t be mad if we were able to get some backstory on the parental units that come from any of these series, that is how well they are written. They are witty, they are hilarious, they are inappropriate, they are loving. . .basically, they are everything one should strive to be when the time comes to shit out some offspring. Every character written to tell this story, played the part and played it well. . .they all helped in making the page turn, while keeping the story captivating.

The sex was good, which if you have already plowed through Kline and Georgia OR Thatch and Cassie OR Wes and Winnie OR Will and Melody, then you know how well the dancing goes down between the sheets in a Max Monroe book, but as crazy as it may sound, my favorite part of the panty melting action in Dr. ER happened to be the dirty talk, I’m a sucker for some words that make the toes curl and those words got used in all the right places.  I’m telling you BXTCHES the dirty word dictionary went to work overtime because they hit right when the time was right.

Lots of couples have been brought to life by the two who call themselves Max Monroe and while I don’t know who occupies the top spot (it really just depends on who I’m reading at that moment), I do believe that Scott and Harlow are close to it. In my experience, sometimes it’s hard to top the lead off couple in a series, but Max Monroe managed to pull the impossible. . .so now I guess we have to wait and see how hard we fall for Nick.

I think I’m nine books into the fabulousness that is Max Monroe and I have yet to be disappointed. Every page turned, every story told, every character created. . .was worth the time spent. And while I still may not know who Max or Monroe actually are (though I always think I’m starting to figure it out), as long as they keep giving me the humor mixed with great stories and characters that I fall in love with, not to mention the escape they are so kind to bless me with. . .so in a nutshell, I don’t give a fuck what you call yourself as long as you continue to call yourselves storytellers.Bxtches Be Reading5 Star Read for Bxtches Be ReadingDr. ER (St. Luke's Docuseries, Book #2) by Max Monroe | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comMax Monroe | www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

The Catch (The Player Duet Series, Book #2) by K. Bromberg

The Catch (The Player Duet Series, Book #2) by K. Bromberg | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

The Catch (The Player Duet Series, Book #2) by K. Bromberg | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comThe Catch (The Player Duet Series, Book #2) by K. Bromberg | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comThe Catch (The Player Duet Series, Book #2) by K. Bromberg | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: Book #1 (The Player), left us in a bit of a bind, so before you even wonder, YES, you must read that one before you tackle this one. There is no “but”, if you decide to play catch before you get played, you will be caught up in confusion, which will cause you to not love this series in the way the author intended. The good news? This is the last book in this series, so if you haven’t yet fell in love, you can start from the beginning and not come up for air until the very last page is turned, I certainly will not judge. Let’s get started.

The Catch will be told through the POV’s of both Easton and Scout.

We will pick up here right where we left off there. When the last page of The Player was turned, we knew that Scout was going into the meeting with the Aces all ready to clear Easton to play and Easton was all ready to take the field. Those are the things we knew, what we learned left us most likely uttering a very loud “WHAT THE FUCK!”, because we found out the the Aces were about to trade the prodigal son and unfortunately we were forced to wait it out. . .until now.

It’s gonna seem like I doling out spoilers here, but let me assure you BXTCHES, I’m not gonna reveal anything that you weren’t already gonna learn almost from the beginning. We knew that Scout was all set to clear Easton and not because he was giving her the deep dick, it was her professional opinion that he was ready to go. But something on a piece of paper caught her eye, and it was enough for her to tell the powers that be in that room, that she was unable to do the job bestowed upon her and that Easton Wylder would not be taking the field just yet. Even though Scout believes that her quick decision was what was best for Easton, his interpretation however, is that of betrayal. You gotta also remember that the reason Scout is even in Austin in the first place is to secure the contract with the Aces. By doing so, her dad would’ve had a contract with every team in the league, so she wasn’t only crucial in getting Easton back on the field, but she is the one that can essentially grant her dad his dying wish. So, no pressure or anything.

It doesn’t take too terribly long for Easton to come around and understand the reason Scout did what she felt necessary. However, it doesn’t change the fact that Easton is headed to Dallas and since the Aces offered her a probationary contract, she is keeping her ass in Austin. 

While it probably would’ve been easy for Bromberg to just ride the trade cliffhanger she left us on to finish out the story in this book, that BXTCH decided to give us much more, so much more. The trade is only a tiny bit of the drama that is going to pour off these pages. It’s not all dread though. Easton and Scout were at the beginning stages of coupledom when we left them, so we still get to witness a very new relationship unfold and two people discovering one another while falling in love. They may have to continue their ride in two different cities, but the love growing is going to be very difficult for distance to sever.

The cans that got opened during part one of this series, will need to get cleaned up in order for closure to take place and no worries, we get the closure that we will crave, but let’s not forget all the cans that were opened. Besides the Easton and Scout storyline, we have to finish the story of Scout and her dad. Not only the professional side and Scout doing her best to win a permanent contract with the Aces, but there is the personal side and the inevitable devastation that Scout will face once her dad loses the battle that he is facing. Right before Easton is delivered the blow by the trade news, the one responsible for his injury became his teammate and if you were thinking that Santiago was just going to be a blip, well. . .prepare yourself. Easton is still trying to reconcile and figure out the relationships between him and his mother and the one between him and his dad. There will be more, it will be heartbreaking, it will be eye opening, it will be love, but in the end. . .it will be beautiful.

There are a lot of people that bring this story to life with Easton and Scout being at the top. We don’t get a lot from the teammates in this one, but we do get more of Manny, who certainly plays a very important role in Easton’s life. There’s also all of the parents, from Easton’s dad and mom to Scout’s dying father, they all prove integral in who Easton and Scout are, not only separate, but who they are as a couple. And as strange as it may sound, the game of baseball will play a very entertaining, yet important role in this book as well. It’s not just a book that happens to have some baseball sprinkled in. . .this is a book about love, the love between a man and a woman and the love for a game. . .a game that is so magical that it’s able to bring even the most unlikely pair together. And that is where the beauty lies.

K. Bromberg does a great job at bringing the action alive and you BXTCHES know what the action is. You can’t really go wrong when a hot athlete is bringing it between the sheets and Easton certainly does not disappoint. While the sex is hot (and trust, it is), it’s the passion that Easton and Scout have for one another that’s gonna set your book and possibly your bed, on fire. 

I have yet to tackle EVERY single page written by K. Bromberg. There are books that I have read, but haven’t yet reviewed, which just means a re-read is in order (tough, I know). But like most (I assume), I became captivated with this author during the emotional wringer she left me in with the Driven Series. The Player Duet Series, while not quite the emotional juggernaut, was easy for me to enjoy. . .I haven’t read a novel by Bromberg that I didn’t fall in love with. . .I LOVE baseball. . .AND. . .this series takes place in Texas (my home), so lots of boxes checked. The story she told that spanned these two books, unfolded like a great movie, with drama to match. She was able to tangle us up, she was able to catch us off guard, she was able cause our hearts to skip a couple of beats, all the while having us fall in love with not only the man, but the game as well. Everyone needs a great escape and Bromberg delivers it in a perfect package.Bxtches Be ReadingThe Catch (The Player Duet Series, Book #2) by K.

Dr. OB (St. Luke’s Docuseries, Book #1) by Max Monroe

Dr. OB (St. Luke's Docuseries, Book #1) by Max Monroe | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

Dr. OB (St. Luke's Docuseries, Book #1) by Max Monroe | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comDr. OB (St. Luke's Docuseries, Book #1) by Max Monroe | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comDr. OB (St. Luke's Docuseries, Book #1) by Max Monroe | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: Brace yourself BXTCHES, this warning is about to get pretty wordy and maybe a bit confusing. Dr. OB is the first book in this series, so one would think that you’re about to get in on the ground floor. . .you’re in a good spot, right? I guess in theory you certainly are, but while you’re doing your happy dance. . .I may be about to shut that fun down. Dr. OB is not the very first time we meet Will, which is why this particular BXTCH was so stoked about this book. We actually met this fine fucker way back in Tapping the Billionaire, which is the very first book of the Billionaire Bad Boys series. That book features Kline and Georgia (Will’s sister), we also got a glimpse of Will in Scoring the Billionaire, the third book of the Billionaire series. I tell you all of that, so I can tell you the following. During Dr. OB, the ones that we fell hard for in the Billionaire Bad Boys series, will make some cameo’s in this book, so while those of us who have read the Billionaire series get to play some catch-up, those of you who have yet to be blown away will be missing out. But don’t fret, you won’t be confused, but if you decide to read Dr. OB, and then go back and meet everyone else, you may be spoiled, and not in a “you’re a princess, let me rub you’re feet kinda way.” So, that’s all. . .let’s get to it.

Dr. OB will be brought to us from the POV’s of both Will and Melody. 

If you haven’t figured out what exactly it is that Will Cummings does for a living, I guess I’ll put you out of your misery. . .he’s an OB/GYN, I know, I know. . .what a shock. While he is cruising along in life and doing a wonderful fucking job at it, an opportunity for him to be featured in a docuseries, that will follow him and some other doctors at his hospital, comes his way. He says yes and his life is about to forever be changed.

Melody Marco’s life has gone on a bit of a road trip and not the kind that has your hair blowing in the wind while you sing your favorite 80’s hits as loud as your lungs will allow. No, this road trip has brought Melody right back to her parent’s front door. Being crammed into a two bedroom apartment with her jazzercise crazed mom and her metal loving dad, makes moving out at the top of the to-do list, which means finding a job is paramount, so actually move that to the top of the list.

Luckily for Melody, her mom just happens to be friends with Will’s mom. And Will happens to be in need of a nurse at his practice. And there you have the very condensed story of how Will meets Melody. Now it’s time for the good stuff.

Nursing isn’t Melody’s passion, it’s more like her necessity. Necessity it may be, but once she lays eyes on the very sexy Will Cummings, her fantasy of Scott Eastwood becomes a distant memory (don’t worry, you’ll get it). And like any great rom-com, obstacles make themselves very well known before anyone can reach the very coveted HEA. Of course there’s the employer/employee relationship, that could get in the way. . .there’s also the fact that our hottie doctor spends his days wrist deep in the vag. Add that to the fact that the man has many a woman coming in so that it’s him specifically wrist deep and you can see where a new young lover could have some issues with that. And let’s not forget about the all important docuseries and while I’m not going into any great detail, but considering it’s the premise for the book, it does play a pretty relevant role. Ohhh, but I will tell you that through the show he does earn the nickname Dr. OBscene, okay that’s all I can say about that.

Like I mentioned in my very long winded warning, we get some updates on the Billionaire Bad Boys bunch, while making some new introductions. We met and fell for Will’s parents in Georgia’s story and that love will grow even more in Dr. OB, and you can add Melody’s to the list of ‘rents we all love, because those two will wiggle their way in whether you like it or not. So you see, we got ourselves a great ensemble going here and I didn’t even mention the office staff that Melody finds herself surrounded by. We also have two more books coming up in this series and if the covers are anything to go by. . .we are in for a very early Christmas.

I don’t write books (duh!), but I have read a lot and I have read very funny books that have me headed in the right direction until we meet up in the bedroom, then somehow the action doesn’t flow as well and I wind up losing my erection, and that’s no fun. But, Max Monroe does the job and they do it well. Let’s just say that Will Cummings was given the perfect name. 

I can only hope that Max Monroe blesses us all with the half books that come in between their full novels. It’s hard when you love a particular series so much because the expectation level going into that author’s next series is set pretty high. But there was no letdown here, there was no “sophomore slump”. . .it captivated, it brought the funny, it also brought the sexy, it brought a bit of angsty rom-com drama, so in a nutshell. . .it really hit the spot.  Just take it and use it as the escape that it’s intended to provide, because let’s face it. . .we can all use that vacation.Bxtches Be Reading5 Star Read for Bxtches Be Reading

Fling (Wrong Series, Book #2.5) by Jana Aston | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comFling (Cafe Series, Book #2.5) by Jana Aston | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comFling (Cafe Series, Book #2.5) by Jana Aston | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: Hopefully you have already fallen in love with this funny as fuck series. Wrong (book #1) brought us Sophie and Luke and Everly and Sawyer had their story told in Right (book #2). While we got to meet Sandra and Gabe in book #2, Fling allows us to get to know them on a much more intimate level, but only in 100 pages, but no worries BXTCHES, the job gets done. What I really wanted to tell you is this. . .technically (and I mean very technically), you could go at this book as a stand alone, remember I did said technically. The thing is this, Jana Aston has written a fabulous series that involves so many wonderful characters and to not engulf yourself into their lives and story would not only do you a disservice, but it would also most likely break the heart of Jana Aston. I mean, I don’t know her personally, so I’m just assuming, but not enjoying this series in order would break my heart and I’m just merely a fan, so I could only envision if this was my imagination at work. And since Fling is just 100 pages, my review should be super quick. Should be.

Fling will be told through a dual POV. Both Sandra and Gabe will their shot at telling their part of the story, so hang on tight, it’s gonna be good.

We met Sandra during Everly’s story and Fling is going to somewhat coincide with that timeline. For a re-cap, Sandra is Sawyer’s assistant, Sandra also has a major crush on Gabe, who happens to be the CFO and Sawyer’s partner (and bestie). . .if you remember, Everly cottoned on to the little crush Sandra has on Gabe when they both ran into him in the elevator and once Everly’s matchmaking skills were awakened, she wasn’t gonna let it go. . .remember the New Year’s Eve party? But, I should probably back things up a bit.

During a company meeting, Gabe’s assistant Preston is bored out of his fucking mind, which inspires him to create’s a Sixteen Candle’s style survey, which he encourages Sandra to fill out. Needless to say, she works out of her comfort zone and answers the questions, admitting that Gabe is the one person in the room that she would love to “love”. Since the survey is anonymous, she isn’t worried about Gabe finding out her true feelings (maybe she is a tad bit worried), she also doesn’t expect Gabe to analyze the handwriting either and you can imagine where that gets her.

So, if you remember the New Year’s Eve party from Right, you certainly remember Everly working her magic in trying to bring Sandra and Gabe together, well this is gonna give the other half of that magic. . .the “good stuff”  half. 

Of course, Gabe and Sandra meet up with one another in the throes of passion, but will they both be okay with this just being a fling?

Since this is just a novella, the focus is mainly on Gabe and Sandra, but we do get some of Sawyer, some of Everly, a little bit of Chloe (book #3) and an introduction to Preston. So, even though it’s a compressed story, you will not ever feel like you’re missing out on anything.

It may be hard to fit some good sex in just 100 pages, but Fling is certainly more about the quality than the quantity. Jana Aston wrote it up good and Gabe and Sandra delivered it where it was most effective. I mean just let your imagination run away with that cover. . .that should do it right?

Since Fling is such a quick read, there isn’t a lot of time for the added angsty drama that would make a full length novel riveting. It delivers on the humor, which is where this series shines (that and then some) and is straight to the point. Jana Aston gets right into the satisfying stuff and captures your attention down to the very last page. It may not take you BXTCHES long to finish, but rest assured, it will leave a lasting impression.

**On a side note: When I first began this series, it was known as the Wrong Series, but then I went to get this review ready and according to Amazon, it is now the Cafe Series. So, I’m not really sure which is the correct answer, so I’m gonna go with Cafe for now and change it if need be.

Cheater (Curious Liaisons Series, Book #1) by Rachel Van Dyken

Cheater (Curious Liaisons Series, Book #1) by Rachel Van Dyken

Cheater (Curious Liaisons Series, Book #1) by Rachel Van DykenCheater (Curious Liaisons Series, Book #1) by Rachel Van DykenCheater (Curious Liaisons Series, Book #1) by Rachel Van DykenBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: I just finished this book. . .for a second time. I should’ve went straight to the keyboard after the first read, but procrastination got to a BXTCH and I had to endure a re-read, but no worries, this booked kicked ass, so it really wasn’t too much of a chore for me. Here is where my shame sets in. During my initial read of Cheater, I realized that this is only the 2nd book by RVD that I have read. Close your mouth, I know. And the real reason I cracked this baby open was because RVD did a stupendous job of promoting it on Facebook, so much so. . .I was sold before even reading the first page. So, I guess I need to add “Read more RVD” to the to-do list. Cheater is book #1 in the Curious Liaisons series and trust a BXTCH, once you have read Lucas and Avery’s story,  you will be eagerly anticipating Thatch and Austin’s story in Cheater’s Regret. . .don’t worry, the wait will end May 23rd (2017).

Cheater will be told through the POV’s of both Lucas and Avery.

I don’t really want to go back and forth in this review, so I’m gonna go out of order. I wanna start with the backstory, don’t freak. . .I’m not spoiling anything. 

Let’s rewind about five years. It’s the rehearsal dinner for Lucas Thorn and Kayla Black. . .middle school sweethearts. . .high school quarterback and the popular cheerleader. . .neighbors. . .laid out HEA. Drunk to-be groom enters the dark bedroom of would be sister-in-law, finds himself in her bed. . .chaos erupts. . .wedding is called off. . .families/neighbors are no longer friendly. . .a cheater is born.

Five years later we meet Avery. Good luck is certainly not on her side, recently out of college, she has just lost her internship and the prospect of having to move back home is about as appealing as living on the street, in fact, the street just might be a tiny bit more enticing. She’s not being forced to pack up things just yet because she has landed a new internship with Grant Learning, working under the VP. So, she may only have enough money for one meal a day, things are looking up, all she has to do is her job well and impress the VP and she ensures herself a permanent position within the company and food in her pantry. With luck on her side, she heads into her new job. . .only to learn that her boss is none other than Lucas Thorn. Lucas Thorn, the man who was once one of her best friends. . .Lucas Thorn, the man who is the reason her mom and dad lost their dear friends. . .Lucas Thorn, the man who cheated on her older sister, but broke her heart in the process.

The “incident” changed Lucas into the man he is today. A man that keeps a lady for each day of the week, except Sunday-that’s reserved for his sister, his logic? It’s not cheating if the other party knows, which each of them are well aware of who the man is that they call “Lucas Thorn”.

I’m not gonna go into detail about the history between Avery and Lucas, just know this. . .their history is pretty profound. They were very close and the “incident” cut Avery really deep. Not because her sister got hurt (that’s certainly some of it), but she lost a very dear friend, someone that she confided in, someone who understood her and appreciated who she was. . .a girl who marched to her own beat and never quite fit in with the image set by her older sisters. And while the “incident” changed everyone involved, things are not always what they seem to be.

While Avery may have been shocked that her new boss is none other than her sister’s ex-fiancé and she still may even feel a bit of rage towards him, she does have enough sense to realize that in order for her to be offered a job when the internship is all said and done, she needs to play nice. So, things are going as good as can be expected, that is until her bestie hooks up with his bestie, lots of wine gets consumed, Avery wakes up in Lucas’ apartment and one tiny little lie to Lucas’ sister flips everything upside down.

With my only other RVD experience being The Bet, one thing I do know however, is her ability to write a phenomenal supporting cast. I mentioned earlier that Austin and Thatch (the respective besties) are the focal point of book #2 and their presence in Cheater will have you counting down the days for the release of their book. We get a thorough introduction to Lucas’ parents and they did not disappoint. Every character written added something to this story, from the lady who trains Avery to the girls who fill out Lucas’ calendar. You laugh when you’re supposed to laugh, you will hate where you’re supposed to hate. Every layer was well thought out and you find yourself not only falling for the main two, but the cast as a whole.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Avery and Lucas will find themselves in bed, minus clothing. But, prior to the dance, the tension produced by their relationship is straight up heavy. When they finally realize that their need for one another is a bit more than the need to worry about whatever fallout may occur, clothes are shed, toes are curled, and tension is released. Their sexual chemistry is on point. It’s hot, it’s seductive, it’s flirtatious. . .it gets the job done and it hits the spot.

There are moments during Cheater that you will find yourself laughing out loud, but it’s the dialogue as a whole that works its magic. It’s funny without being over the top, you won’t always be cracking up, but you will almost always have a smile on your face. Avery’s personality is the type that is funny without trying to be funny, it just is. Lucas is witty and charming and even though he may fuck up to six different girls every week, you never find yourself disliking him. We do get some drama, I mean Avery does fall for her sister’s ex, that would add tension to any family, but it’s things like, dinner with Lucas’ parents and incidents at the gyno and Starbucks and their pumpkin bread and a never ending love for food and a pet spider. . .so much that makes this book captivating and almost impossible to put down. So, even though I had to go through a re-read, all it did was serve as a reminder of how great this story really is.Bxtches Be ReadingCheater (Curious Liaisons Series, Book #1) by Rachel Van Dyken

Confess by Colleen Hoover

Confess by Colleen Hoover | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

Confess by Colleen Hoover | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comConfess by Colleen Hoover | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comConfess by Colleen Hoover | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: With no pun intended, I should probably confess something to you BXTCHES. I had no intentions of really ever reading this book. Now, before you BXTCHES get all cray on me, hear me out. I haven’t read every CoHo book out there, but I have read about 6 of her books and the one thing I have learned time and time again is. . .this particular BXTCH needs to be in a safe place emotionally before I take a walk into her imagination. With all of the talk floating around regarding Confess: The Series being released (I will have more on that at the end of the review), I started to debate whether or not I should suck it up and read the book, I knew I was going to watch the series, it was just a matter of how many times I was potentially willing to be gutted. The first two episodes were then released and I realized that the book was going to be worthy of my attention. So, here we go. **Disclosure: I promise I will try my best to not unlock any spoilers.**

Confess will be told through the POV’s of both Auburn and Owen.

Confess is going to kick off about five years prior to the story coming to life. Auburn is just a young 15 year old from Portland whose boyfriend (Adam) is terminally ill and has been moved to Dallas, which is where we are first introduced to Auburn. We actually meet her on her final day in Dallas, saying her final goodbyes to her first everything. She is being forced back to Portland. So, right out of the gate, CoHo goes for the jugular. . .told you, you need to be in a safe place when reading.

Fast forward five years and Auburn is back in the Lone Star State. I don’t want to provide spoilers, so I will just say this. Auburn finds herself back in Dallas because she still has ties to Adam’s family. If you can piece the puzzle together, then you go BXTCH!

Walking home from work one day, she walks by a local art studio which happens to be looking for help, needing a little extra cash, she takes a chance and is knocking on the door of Confess. When the owner opens up, Auburn is blown back by the grateful eyes staring at her. Owen Mason Gentry is the genius behind the artwork. After inviting Auburn inside and learning that they share the same middle name (so maybe fate is at play here), Owen has himself a new employee. 

Owen’s artwork is based on the confessions of complete strangers, they write down their deepest, darkest secrets and Owen puts the story to canvas, a brilliant and beautiful concept. Auburn finds herself not only moved by the art hanging on the walls, but by the man himself. A feeling that she hasn’t felt in about five years.

With Auburn still tied to Adam’s family, she is careful in the way that she lives her life and unfortunately, Adam’s older brother Trey (who happens to be a cop) doesn’t really think that Owen is the best path for Auburn to take, and of course there is more to that storyline, you’ll just have to go on the path of discovery. Owen has some confessions he will need to share as well. C’mon, you didn’t think things were gonna be that cut and dry did you?

There is really no way for you to know which way this story is going to turn and unfortunately this is about all I can give you, because I’m quite sure I have already said a bit too much.

Let’s talk about the support in this book. This is not an ensemble cast, while everyone plays their part and does so very well, the love really circles around Auburn and Owen. Regardless of how big or small, the secondary characters do fill in some gaps. The one thing (among many) that CoHo does very well is developing your feelings for every character written. If you are supposed to love a character, she makes sure you are swept off of your feet, if you are supposed to loathe a character, she is going to be certain that you are seething with rage. It’s very difficult to lodge a complaint, because everyone does the job they were given to do.

CoHo books aren’t really centered around sex, but that doesn’t mean that they are lacking in heat. Within these pages she does a great job of building the tension between Auburn and Owen. . .there are a few moments that it gets pretty thick. Her books may not be centered around the sex, but that BXTCH doesn’t lack creativity when getting down to the action. It takes a special talent to write sex that could be described as “tender fucking”, but that is what she does. Without any hidden innuendo. . .you can feel the passion between Owen and Auburn.

Even though I was somewhat reluctant to give this book a go, it turned out not to be the most emotionally draining book of CoHo’s that I have read and for that, a BXTCH was thankful. Just because I didn’t find myself in a corner, balled up in the fetal position, doesn’t mean she didn’t take me for a ride, she made sure to keep me alert at all times. The best part of her books, while also being the worst part of her books, is her ability to throw you a curveball when you thought the game you were playing was tennis. CoHo can do angst and drama and suspense and humor and love like no other and if you are someone who thinks fate is just a word, then I implore you to learn all about the author herself. Colleen Hoover is someone who was meant to tell stories, she is someone who was meant to slay us with her words, she is someone who was meant to offer us an escape and allow us to live in her imagination, if only for a short amount of time. It’s glorious, it’s dreadful, it’s beauty, it’s heart pounding. . .after all it is all about the #confessions.

I know that I didn’t give much to go on with this book. If you find yourself in a “should I or shouldn’t I” battle, go with should. Even if you decide to watch the series first, I still would recommend a read of the book. And while I’m not a connoisseur of fine artwork, the confessions displayed in this book and series are really beautiful. 

Confess has been turned into a 7-part series that will be shown on go90.com. The first two episodes have already been released, with the remaining five being released on Tuesday (4/4/17). It looks like each episode will be about 22 minutes long and as with any book that makes it to screen, some things are going to be different, BUT, I really think that the changes made in the series is not going to impact the heart of the story. I have already checked out the first two episodes and those episodes are the reason I decided to crack open this book and see what kind of damage CoHo could do to my soul. I have read that one would need an account on go90 in order to watch the series, I have yet to be prompted to set up an account.

Below Deck by Tara Sivec

Below Deck by Tara Sivec | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

Below Deck by Tara Sivec | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBelow Deck by Tara Sivec | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBelow Deck by Tara Sivec | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: There really isn’t too terribly much to warn about before you crack open this gem. There is no before book(s) that need to be read prior, there is no backstory you must know first. . .the only warning really needed is to plan your day accordingly, because once you start in, you will not want to let up. Trust a BXTCH, I speak that wisdom from experience. On a side note, I’m a bit ashamed to say that I didn’t even realize until CHAPTER 5, that Below Deck, had a double meaning in getting Below Deck (wink wink), Christ on a cracker, I need to join the Clueing In Club ASAP!

Below Deck will be told through the POV’s of both Mackenzie and Declan (YAY!)

I usually kick these things off with our leading lady, but twisting things up a bit, I’m gonna start with Declan. Declan McGillis is 32 years old and the current Boson on the Helios. Now, I can admit freely that I didn’t have the first fucking clue what a “Boson” was (obviously it had something to do with a boat), so in an effort to help you BXTCHES out and save you some time. . .  boatswain (/ˈbsən/, formerly and dialectally also /ˈbtswn/), bo’s’nbos’n, or bosun, also known as a Petty Officer or a qualified member of the deck department, is the seniormost rate of the deck department and is responsible for the components of a ship’s hull. The boatswain supervises the other members of the ship’s deck department, and typically is not a watchstander, except on vessels with small crews. Additional duties vary depending upon ship, crew, and circumstance. Thank you Wikipedia. Now, Declan’s dream is to one day be Captain McGillis, he has put in the work, he has dealt with the lousy hours and shitty pay, but a dream is a dream, and he is determined to see his through. However, on the path to that dream, he is forced to put up with the rich and “I’m better than you, so I’ll need you to wait on me hand and foot” clients that board his boat, week after week. There are certain unwritten rules that Declan believes in, rules that he must follow because “messy” is the last thing he needs in his effort to reach his goal. Once he is handed the dossier on the Armstrong’s, the next family to charter the Helios, and once he takes one look at Mackenzie Armstrong, every rule that he has held tight to, every provision that he has put into place to make the narrow road to Captain a possibility, could crumble right before him. Ahhh. . .Mackenzie Armstrong.

Mackenzie Armstrong is the only child of Mark Armstrong. Let’s back up a bit and cover some bases. Mark Armstrong made his millions by developing a dating app, he lost his wife (Mackenzie’s mom) years ago and recently exchanged vows with one Allyson Drake-Swanson-Armstrong. . .I know, what a fucking mouthful, right? In an effort to promote some family bonding, a yacht has been chartered and Mackenzie has packed her bags, albeit begrudgingly. . .she has also packed the bags of her bestie, Brooke, so not all is lost. Once Mackenzie walked across that NYU stage, she went straight to work for her father’s company, also begrudgingly. She has recently discovered that some things aren’t adding up and while she should be enjoying and looking forward to her trip around the Virgin Islands, the future of her dad’s company and everything he has worked so hard for, is weighing heavily on her mind. What’s a BFF for, if not to give the best advice when it is most needed. . .the one sure fire way to get Mackenzie’s mind off all her troubles, is to find herself a hot piece to flop herself right on top of. . .a vacation fling is just what the bestie ordered.

It’s not going to take a genius to piece the puzzle together and figure out where exactly it is that this ship is headed, but this BXTCH isn’t going to spoil any of the fun for you. There are a lot of moving pieces within these pages and you’ll have to wade through the journey all on your own, to witness them all coming together. But look, it gives you everything you could hope for. It has the drama, it has the humor, it adds a bit of suspense, it will even have you wanting to junk punch Declan a bit. But don’t worry, you’ll end with a smile on your face.

It takes a lot of bodies to bring a yacht to fully functioning, well the same can be said for the supporting cast of Below Deck. While Mackenzie and Declan stand great together, it’s the ones written to support that bring the comic relief to a very well told story. We’ve discussed Brooke the Bestie, but her role isn’t just one of confidant, it’s the voice of reason, the proverbial slap given upside the head when needed. Declan has his own proverbial BXTCH slapper in Ben. Add in the chef, the Captain, the rest of the crew and even the bitch (not to be confused with BXTCH) step-sister, Arianna, who would give Anastasia and Drizella a run for their money in the “who is greediest, most selfish, I wouldn’t mind pushing over the railing” department. The true gauge in determining how well a supporting character is written (for me anyhow) is how much I long to have an author give me some love and focus on those characters. . .Below Deck certainly had the mouth watering, I would love to get more from Ben and Brooke, and wouldn’t hate it too much if I got the goods on Zoe.

It’s time to get down to the dirty. Surely you realized that eventually Declan’s cock was going to find its way to Mackenzie’s pussy, right? Well, if I spoiled that for you. . .suck it up, because I’m about to go all in. There are some great things about the mattress dancing that’s happening in Below Deck. First, I love it when an author goes hard and rough with the fucking and Tara Sivec does just that. . .but, I can also really appreciate more tender moments and ones where epiphany’s are had while one is thrusting into another and Tara Sivec brought that to the bed as well. The gamut is covered, the toes are curled, the only thing left to do at this point is to light up the cigarette. But once again, you’ll end with a smile on your face.

My love affair with Tara Sivec started with Claire and Carter. . .and if you are squinting your eyes and scratching your head on that one, then this BXTCH would suggest you do a bit of research, fall in love, then BXTCH slap yourself for waiting so long to clue in. Anywho. . .one of the many things I love about her writing is her laugh out loud capabilities and her capacity to force escape. Below Deck, while having funny moments, didn’t bring about a whole lot of gut busting LOL’ing. I don’t say that to imply that it’s a negative attribute, not every book has to have me rolling on the floor with tears running down my face. Trust. . .you will want to board this ship and just sit back and allow it to take you on whatever excursion is needed in your reality right now. Below Deck, at its core, is a wonderfully told love story, one that reminds us that no matter how carefully we have planned out our future, that regardless of how meticulous we are in laying out the tiles of our life and ensuring that they all come together just right, dreams change and wants and needs transform, and in the end, life has a funny fucking way of knowing the path you should be on long before the realization hits you and sometimes the wake up call that’s needed the most is to give yourself the big ole’ fuck you finger and just sit back and trust in the quest.Bxtches Be Reading5 Star Read for Bxtches Be ReadingBelow Deck by Tara Sivec | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

Egomaniac: A Tight Spaces Novel by Vi Keeland

Egomaniac: A Tight Spaces Novel by Vi Keeland | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

Egomaniac: A Tight Spaces Novel by Vi Keeland | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comEgomaniac: A Tight Spaces Novel by Vi Keeland | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comEgomaniac: A Tight Spaces Novel by Vi Keeland | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: The good news? There is no prerequisite book(s) that need to be read prior to Egomaniac. The bad news? Prepare. Prepare yourself to be sucked in and that BXTCH Vi Keeland is not going to let you go until you have read the last word and find yourself wondering if there is going to be more of Drew and Emerie somewhere in your future. The fantastic news? That fucking cover, Good Lord. . .that is ART!

Egomaniac will be told through the POV’s of both Drew and Emerie.

We’re kicking things off on New Year’s Eve and with Drew Jagger getting back to New York after a vacation in Hawaii. Headed to his penthouse/office (they’re both in the same building-one’s at top and one’s at the bottom), he almost sets fireworks of his own off when he surprises someone who has made herself at right at home, in his office.

Emerie Rose has relocated to New York from Oklahoma, with the hopes of establishing her own practice in the big city. Oh and there’s also Baldwin, the one she is somewhat, maybe in love with. . .the one she has maybe followed to New York. . .but also the one who has friend-zoned her. So yeah, there’s that, but more on that in a bit. Imagine Emerie’s surprise when she found a killer deal for a Park Avenue office. . .the perfect location to set-up her practice for marriage counseling. . .the perfect place that was probably too perfect, which she soon discovers when Drew literally scares the skirt right off of her.

When Drew discovers Emerie in his office, he may have been a bit worried, thinking that a squatter has found a new residence, but the pieces start coming together when he realizes that Emerie has actually been conned, right out of ten thousand dollars, cash. By none other than John Cougar. Well, not the real John Cougar, but poor Emerie didn’t recognize the fake name. Drew does his best to help her by taking her to the police station to file a report, but it’s then discovered that she has an outstanding warrant for indecent exposure from when she was a teenager, so Drew’s time with Emerie is going to be extended a bit, which he finds himself surprisingly okay with.

A little more about Drew. . .he is a divorce attorney, a very successful divorce attorney. He is divorced himself and while I would love nothing more than to jump into those juicy details, the story actually flashbacks to the beginning of that time in his life, so it’s better for you to just ride it out and take it all in. But back to Emerie, Drew puts his lawyering to good work when he helps Emerie out of her indecent exposure scandal, which makes Emerie very grateful, but she is still faced with the problem of being out ten thousand dollars, with no prospective places for her to set up shop.

Eventually Drew makes Emerie an offer she really can’t refuse. With his secretary out of the office for several months, it would help him to have someone assist in answering the phones, so she takes some messages in exchange for rent free office space and Drew gets to stare at her ass as much as her really wants. It’s a win-win all the way around. What could go wrong in an office where one person is helping to keep marriages together and the other is helping take them apart? It’s like a match made in heaven.

It doesn’t take much to realize that Drew and Emerie will find their way to a bed or to the top of a desk or up against his window in his penthouse apartment. Whatever the case, his dick finds its way to her pussy and it’s time to pack em’ up and send em’ home, Drew has found the one. C’mon, he’s not that shallow, it’s not only the pussy. . .Emerie is beautiful. . .smart. . .funny. . .a bit naive. . .tells it like it is. . .many reasons for Drew to fall for Miss Oklahoma. Don’t worry, it wouldn’t be the book it is without a bit of angsty drama and Baldwin does have to fit somewhere in the pieces of this romance puzzle, not to mention the ex-wife. It’s all good and bad, but in a good way. I will say this, I’m kinda a whore when it comes to drama between the pages of a really good love story. I love it, it puts me on edge and can almost captivate me like no other part of a book (I said almost), BUT. . .I was falling for Drew so hard, I really didn’t want that small sliver of time where I’m forced to hate him a tiny bit. . .all in the honor of our girl, because you will fall in love with some Emerie. 

We’re not given too much in the way of a supporting cast. But what we do get, is pretty fucking awesome. Roman is Drew’s bestie, has been since elementary and was written so well, I wouldn’t mind a story on him sometime in the near future. We do get Alexa, who is the ex-wife and I’m no author, but I suspect it’s not easy to write a character that you know is going to be hated, but fuck, I bet it’s fun. And trust a BXTCH, you will hate Alexa. Baldwin is walking a thin line, but Drew has his number when it comes to his true intentions, he just needs to get Emerie to see the situation from a different pair of glasses. There is one other character that I’m gonna keep under wraps, but you will love this person and you will fall even harder for Drew because of this person.

Vi Keeland is good at a lot of things when it comes to composing a book. Close to the top of that list. . .the sex. She gets dirty with the best of them and I mean that all around. From creating the tension, to setting the atmosphere, to the dialogue (she creates some toe curling dirty talk), to the actual fucking. . .that BXTCH could give a seminar and save lots of relationships. Just a thought.

I knew Egomaniac was going to be good, I don’t one-click often without first tasting a bit of the sample. Vi Keeland is one of the ones that no appetizer is required. I just dive right in to the meal and go until I can’t take anymore. I finished in one day, what can I say, I was famished. This book offers the gamut of what one needs when seeking an escape. It has a great plot line, it’s funny, it’s sexy, a leading lady who holds her own, provides a bit of tension. . .a fuckhot leading man. . .and it’s all aimed at us, the readers, in an effort to keep us captivated, to help us escape, to provide us with yet another of Vi’s beautiful ones to fall in love with. So yeah, I knew Egomaniac was going to be good, but it was so much more than that.Bxtches Be Reading5 Star Read for Bxtches Be ReadingEgomaniac: A Tight Spaces Novel by Vi Keeland | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com
