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 (Cafe Series, Book #2.5) by Jana Aston

Fling (Cafe Series, Book #2.5) by Jana Aston | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

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.

The Player (The Player Duet Series, Book #1) by K. Bromberg

The Player (The Player Duet Series, Book #1) by K. Bromberg | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

The Player (The Player Duet Series, Book #1) by K. Bromberg | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comThe Player (The Player Duet Series, Book #1) by K. Bromberg | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: First things first, let’s all take a brief moment and give praise for that fuck hot cover. Baseball happens to be my favorite, but even if it put me to sleep quicker than an Ambien, I would never shake my head to that cover. Next up on the warning list. . .the dreaded cliffhanger. Now, if you’re a BXTCH who would prefer to turn the final page of The Player while falling back on a bed full of fluffy pillows, with nothing but sweet thoughts of Easton Wylder running through your imagination, well, you’re gonna be a bit disappointed. I mean, you still may drift off with visions of a certain beautiful catcher invading. . .but, you may fall back on your bed of fluffy pillows in a fit of rage, even more so when you realize that book #2 isn’t set to release until June (2017). But, don’t worry your pretty little heads none, the great thing about falling in love with Easton and Scout now is that you can always re-fall with a re-read in June, just in time for book #2. If you choose to wait until right before book #2 is released, then you can do yourself a good ole’ back to back and catch Easton fever then. Life is about choices after all.

We will be getting Easton and Scout’s story through a dual POV-which FYI, is my absolute favorite way to fall in love.

I guess the best place to start is with Easton Wylder. Easton is the all-star catcher for the Aces, who recently had his rotator cuff torn in a dirty play at the plate. With their world class athlete sidelined, the Aces have contracted the best in the business to come in and work his magic, all to ensure that Easton is able to take the field again and do the one thing that is embedded in his DNA. Baseball.

No one is better at putting injured athletes back together than Doc Dalton and with a career that has found him bouncing from club to club, to wherever the injuries call, the one thing missing from his illustrious resume, is a long term contract with a club. However, life has thrown Doc a curveball and when the Aces come calling, requesting that he get their catcher back on the field, he is forced to turnover the treatment to his daughter, Scout. 

Scout Dalton has some very big shoes to fill. Not only is the future of one of the league’s best in her hands, but so is her father’s final accomplishment. Add all that pressure to the fact that she ain’t got a bat swinging between her legs and the hill that she needs to climb is more like a mountain. 

The attraction is instant between Easton and Scout and even though Easton comes wrapped up in a mighty fine package, Scout realizes that the focus word needs to be. . .resist. In her herculean effort to be taken serious, not to mention working her ass off to secure a permanent position with the Aces, she focuses all of her expertise on getting Easton ready by the time required by the front office. Easton has his very own herculean effort to tackle. . .and it involves convincing Scout that she may be able to put her expertise on display in the training room, but he’s the man to put his expertise on display in the bedroom.

Obviously, it doesn’t take too much to realize that an Easton and Scout is going to happen. It’s really about the obstacles that they come face to face with that’s gonna turn their story on its head. There’s Scout trying to prove to any and everyone that she is the right “man” for the job, while trying to separate the relationship she has with her dad and the relationship she has with her mentor. . .who happens to be one in the same. Easton is dealing with the fallout of an injury that would end most careers, but he has a “get game day ready by” deadline and add to that stress is the fact that the play that caused the injury was dirty and intentional and his dad happens to be pretty legendary in the world of baseball himself and his constant nagging reminds Easton that he is not living up to his father’s legacy, so you can see that he has his own personal shit storm that’s brewing around him. So, while you get yourself a pretty great love story here, there’s plenty of twists and turns to keep that love right on the edge. 

Since this story surrounds a baseball team, it should be a no-brainer that we’re gonna get presented with somewhat of an ensemble cast. . .and Bromberg does not disappoint. In my personal (and what I would like to think, professional) opinion, the two most important supporting characters just so happen to be the ones whose shoes Scout and Easton are finding themselves trying to fill. . .those of their fathers. Of course there are other players that fill it in and they add very important layers to this story, some of which I highly hope come to star in their own highlight reel a bit down the line. 

Anytime you throw an athlete in the bedroom or on the field or in a batting cage. . .you can expect a firework show of your very own and ladies, Easton delivers the goods. I have read several books by Bromberg and there has yet to be a book that she didn’t make the toes curls and the panties melt. Whether it’s throw her up against the wall fucking or whispering dirty things in her ear or passionately and slowly making love. . .that BXTCH knows how to activate an imagination.

K. Bromberg knows how to give us what we need even when we didn’t even know we needed it. I’m at a weird crossroads with my sport novels, just when I think hockey is all the rage (I don’t even watch that particular sport) along comes a story like The Player and the reminder of why baseball happens to be my favorite. 

The Player is kicking off a really great series. It has all of the elements one would need to become captivated and lose sleep or forget about the laundry or blow off doing the dishes. . .the right amount of humor, enough drama, plenty of baseball (YUM!), and SEXY, SEXY, SEXY. . .I loved it all. I loved the way my heart raced when the story started to turn a bit towards the serious side or the way I was able to laugh out loud, then had to sneak a peek to see who was watching or the way my libido took notes when we got to the good stuff and even though cliff hangers aren’t really my bag, I gotta say that I loved the way she brought this one to an end. Bxtches Be ReadingThe Player (The Player Duet Series, Book #1) by K.

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

The Run (Hell’s Disciples MC Series, Book #4) by Jaci J

The Run (Hell's Disciples MC Series, Book #4) by Jaci J | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

The Run (Hell's Disciples MC Series, Book #4) by Jaci J | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comThe Run (Hell's Disciples MC Series, Book #4) by Jaci J | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comThe Run (Hell's Disciples MC Series, Book #4) by Jaci J | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: My usual warning goes along the lines of. . .“read in order, blah, blah, blah”. . .and I will be aiming in that direction, but I’m gonna throw you BXTCHES an alternate route. Books #1-3 of the Hell’s Disciples MC takes place in the Washington chapter and books #4-6 take place in the Oregon chapter and while the two chapters do intertwine, it’s not enough to be confusing if you were to go out of order. BUT. . .If it’s the Washington chapter that has you drooling, then read books #1-3 in order, if it’s Oregon chapter that brings you joy, then read books #4-6 in order. But trust a BXTCH when she tells you that the whole series will make your dick hard. . .so you should really just go for it all.

The Run will be told through the POV’s of both Buck and Lennon.

Buck is the Sergeant at Arms for the Hell’s Disciples MC Oregon chapter and has just been tasked with a very important pick-up. It’s not drugs or guns or some enemy who’s about to meet the maker, no, Buck is making the drive into Washington and meeting up with his brothers, to pick up Lennon. . .his road trip partner.

Lennon is a spirit. A wanderer. And even though she is planting her feet in Oregon and even though she finds Buck to be more ruggedly sexy and more mouthwatering than any other man she has set her eyes on and even though she is pretty down with hanging with the MC, she knows that she will take off once the spirit moves her. 

Buck is not too sure what it is he’s supposed to do with a woman as a roommate, especially one that his dick hasn’t been properly introduced to. He is obviously attracted to Lennon. . .she’s super easy to live with, she cooks and not too terribly high maintenance, add that to the fact that she meshes pretty well with his brothers and she is able to hold her own against him. The problem? He’s been burned and not very trusting of any woman, no matter how much he’s dying to sink into her and no matter how good she looks on the back of his bike or how well they live side by side.

In order for this to be a kick ass MC read, we need some kick ass MC action and Jaci J does not disappoint on that front. There is another MC trying to move into the Hell’s Disciples territory and some pretty shady shit is starting to happen. All begins when a longtime member is missing, presumably dead, which of course means a war of some sort is about to get kick started. The unfortunate happenstance of all this drama is a lot of the shady shit starts happening when Lennon arrives. . .put two and two together BXTCHES. Now, this is a storyline that will continue into the next book, so not all will be solved between the rival MC’s when you reach the end of The Run.

Things are certainly going to heat up between Buck and Lennon and when they do, a fire ignites. But, when you have a woman who finds it a bit difficult staying in one place too long and a bad ass biker who got hit too hard in his last relationship. . .it’s not exactly the perfect equation to a happily ever after.

Since The Run introduces us to a new chapter of the Hell’s Disciples, we are lucky enough BXTCHES to sink our imaginations into a whole new crew. While we don’t get all up in the business of each of the members, we do get enough of an appetizer to wet the whistle. The Washington crew does come back and we get to play just a tiny bit of catch-up. The main supporting character we are really following is Rock, his book is next and while it’s a bit smaller on the page count, it will pack a very mighty punch.

MC drama may be one thing that keeps the pages turning, but let’s not sell ourselves short, the Alphaness that comes alive when the clothes come off definitely keeps our eyes glued and our hearts pounding. There are some books that I can read and not be disappointed if the sex isn’t where I want it, BUT if a BXTCH tries to deal me a MC book with impotent sex, then I may have to lodge a complaint. However, our BXTCH Jaci J really knows how to use her words. There is no mistaking any intentions, there is no beating around the bush, the sexual tension is cracking and when the two can take it no more, it is straight up delicious. 

I wasn’t sure how I was gonna feel when it dawned on me that this book begins the introductions to a new MC chapter. I really thought I was gonna miss the ones I had already fallen in love with, well imagine my surprise when I found myself really falling for Buck and Lennon AND trust a BXTCH when she tells you that you will love Lennon, she was so different from any of the women up to this point. In the end, my concern was for naught, Jaci J could’ve easily have moved the MC while keeping it almost the same, but she took this one in a whole different direction.

I first purchased this book back in December 2015 and I started it (barely), but never finished it. Fast forward to now. . .Jaci J releases the new book in this series and I was pretty much salivating to sink my eyeballs into it, but I am pretty serious about reading MC books in order and in order for me to really enjoy this series in the way that it was written, I needed to play a game of catch-up. . .so in all of my great ambition, I started from book #1 and now here we are. The quality of the book had nothing to do with why I never originally finished it, it was more of a lazy thing. This is a really good MC series, one that I’m quite surprised isn’t more popular. If you’re looking for some grit, if you’re looking for some drama, if you’re looking for some humor, if you’re looking for some super hot Alphas, if you’re looking for some mind blowing, toe curling sex. . .then you have found it. Bxtches Be ReadingThe Run (Hell's Disciples MC Series, Book #4) by Jaci J | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

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.

Going Down (The Elevator Series, Book #1) by Katherine Stevens

Going Down (The Elevator Series, Book #1) by Katherine Stevens | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

Going Down (The Elevator Series, Book #1) by Katherine Stevens | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comGoing Down (The Elevator Series, Book #1) by Katherine Stevens | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comGoing Down (The Elevator Series, Book #1) by Katherine Stevens | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: This is my very first Katherine Stevens book and I’m not even too sure how I lucked upon it. I think it may have come through my Facebook feed, so shoutout to all of you authors who promote each other, because if y’all didn’t scratch each other every once and a while, I would not have Cici or Cole in my world and that’s no fun. Going Down is the first book in this fan-fucking-tastic series, followed by a novella, then the second book and even better news. . .this is part of Kindle Unlimited, so if you subscribe to that service, you can read for free, YAY! The only other warning I can/will give you BXTCHES is this. . .Going Down is going to suck your asses in and hold you hostage, but in the best, most non-lethal way possible. 

Going Down will be told through Cici’s POV.

Cici is an assistant vice president for Barclay Advertising, a job that she happens to love, if only her boss wasn’t a douche canoe. When she wakes up one morning with news that her company has been bought out, mainly because said douche canoe couldn’t keep his dick out of everyone’s lake, Cici has a renewed sort of energy. Things get even better when she finds out via her BFF Maggie (who happens to also be the company’s HR director) that she gets the glory of vacating the spot left empty by her former boss.

With her first day in her new position coming to an end, she finds herself stuck in an elevator with what could only be described as an Elevator God or what could later best be described as an Elevator Sex God. . .yeah, you know where we’re going with this. C’mon, you’re stuck overnight in an elevator with the most beautiful specimen you have ever laid your eyes on, you had already been in a fight with a mime that day, your blood sugar is a bit low from the lack of any real meal, what’s left to do, other than allow this beauty to impale his goodness in you till you feel nothing but his cock for days, it’s not like you’re ever going to see him again.

Cole Danvers has just scored a job with Grantham Media and while it may not be the job of his dreams, it’s a foot in the door with a very reputable company and it’s too good of an opportunity to pass up. On his way to celebrate with his friends, he finds himself trapped in an elevator with a very beautiful albeit peculiar woman named Cici. Well, you already knows where this ride takes them and even after Cici shouts out Grover Cleveland’s name as she reaches her sweet spot, Cole is eager to to have her in his life. That is until she finds out that Cole is in fact her new assistant and there is no hat or glasses large enough to disguise her from him when he arrives to meet her in the office on his first day. 

So, in a nutshell you have Cici, who by all accounts is a feisty lady who encounters her fair share of “incidents” and is somewhat of a rule follower more than she is a rule breaker. Having crazy elevator sex with a complete stranger is something any decent girl would need to share with her BFF, but when the elevator stranger happens to be your new assistant and the BFF is your HR Director. . .well, you surely can understand how claustrophobic the area between the rock and hard place is that Cici finds herself in. Add that to a crazy cat, a trucker fetish, a couple of accidental fires, and so much more and you have yourself one helluva algebraic equation that would be difficult for even the most brilliant of minds to solve.

Going Down delivers when it comes to the supporting cast. I think I’m someone who jumps over the fence a lot on this subject, almost hypocritically. I guess the reality is, sometimes a great book can thrive when it only focuses on the leading couple. . .but when a comedy is at stake, I personally feel that the support that is written, when written fucking awesomely (the word “well” was just too mediocre to use here), really does it’s job and supports. That’s what you BXTCHES are going to get in Going Down. . .while the support circle isn’t too large, what it lacks in size, it makes up for in quality. Maggie is the BFF and this book would not be the same without her and her story is coming in book #2, so brace yourself. Cole’s family offers another layer that will bring tears to your eyes, tears of laughter, but tears nonetheless. Leroy the cat is almost as necessary as Maggie and just as hilarious. All in all, great ensemble, much needed laughter, fantastically written.

From the rom-com books I have read, there seems to be a pretty delicate line when it comes to the sex scenes mixed with the humor. It has to be difficult to make the page sizzle while still keeping the comedy going but, Katherine Stevens, you delivered girl. I am a BXTCH who usually thinks that if laughter is going down during the sex, then the sex is taking the back seat. . .and not in a “pull this car over because I need your cock right now” way, but more in an “ouch, that’s not where your penis goes” awkward kinda way. But that’s not what comes alive on these pages. The funny is still there, but so is the toe curling, dirty talking stuff we all love. So what if we get a bit of U.S. History while we’re at it, that is something we all probably need anyway. . .so consider it a PSA.

This is a fucking funny book. While I consider myself someone with a pretty good sense of humor, there are books that I have come across that some believe to be “the funniest they have ever read” and it causes my forehead to squint in wonder. . .I just didn’t get it. So, if you’re hesitant to take my word for it, then I understand. But, if you are someone who appreciates the kind of humor that Tara Sivec produces, then Katherine Stevens is for you. I wish my stalker detective skills were more on point, these two women have got to share some friendship DNA or something of the like, where’s Maury when you need him?

When I dive into a book, I usually give it an escapability score. Do I find myself jonesing for another hit? Do I look the sandman in then eye and tell him to fuck off, I’m reading? Can I scroll the book through my imagination and envision a movie? If I find myself answering “yes” to most or all of these questions, then I know I have a gem. I know that a reread will be in my future. And when the book is by a new author (to me), then I know I can add another favorite to my list. Thank you Katherine Stevens, your great imagination and storytelling has brought a smile to this BXTCH’S face, your words have my mouth watering for more, your humor brings relief to my soul and laughter to my heart.Bxtches Be Reading5 Star Read for Bxtches Be ReadingGoing Down (The Elevator Series, Book #1) by Katherine Stevens | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

Pucked Off (Pucked Series, Book #6) by Helena Hunting

Pucked Off (Pucked Series, Book #6) by Helena Hunting | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

Pucked Off (Pucked Series, Book #6) by Helena Hunting | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comPucked Off (Pucked Series, Book #6) by Helena Hunting | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comPucked Off (Pucked Series, Book #6) by Helena Hunting | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.comBxtches Be Blogging Book ReviewsBXTCHES Gotta Warn: Come close and listen carefully BXTCHES. When you pull this masterpiece up on Amazon or Goodreads or wherever it is that you browse for your book boyfriends, one of the first things you will read is “A standalone novel” and then you may become giddy with excitement because you’re thinking that you can jump right into Lance and Poppy without first meeting Alex and Violet or Miller and Sunny or Randy and Lily and I’m here to educate you BXTCHES and tell you, if you go that route, you’re gonna be making a mistake. First, this is a phenomenal ensemble cast and series, which you would be missing out on if you dove headfirst into book #6. Also, Pucked Off gives us Lance and Poppy, and we first met them in Pucked Up (book #2), so it’s just much easier if you were to go in order, trust a BXTCH, I wouldn’t let you down. Let’s get started.

Pucked Off will be told through the POV’s of both Lance and Poppy.

Let’s back the puck up a bit and review. It’s been a while since I acquainted myself with Pucked (book #1), so it’s difficult for me to remember if we actually met Lance then. I will say, if we did, it was brief. But, I know with certainty that Lance was brought to us in Miller and Sunny’s story. It was also where we briefly meet Poppy. If you’re still scratching your head, in the beginning of Pucked Up, after boozing it up at a bar, Miller, Randy, and Lance went back to Lance’s place to continue the party, and tagging along were some ladies. Included in the that group was Poppy. If you’re still a little foggy, she is the one who wiped off the dick that was drawn on Miller’s forehead.

I haven’t yet read any reviews on Pucked Off, but from what I have seen on social media thus far, some are upset that it’s Poppy getting the go here. Maybe upset is not the right term, I just think lots of fans were expecting Tash. But here’s some truth BXTCHES, when we meet Poppy (while she is scrubbing a cock off of a forehead) we learn that she actually knew Lance when she was younger. When we learn that fun bit of information, that was my clue that when we got to Lance, it was going to be Lance + Poppy. But, I can understand where a lot of you were wanting/hoping to get more insight into Lance and Tash. Well, your wish will be granted, just maybe not the way that you had anticipated.

Poppy first met Lance when she was just a kid and he transferred to her school. Her first encounters with him came when he would tug a bit on her ponytail, both gingers, solidarity and all that jazz. Fast forward a bit and Poppy’s older sister is dragging her to a party, one that she was entirely too young to be at. She soon finds herself in a circle and before she realizes it, she is about to enter Seven Minutes in Heaven with. . .Lance. Not wanting to embarrass her (or him, I suppose), Lance waits till the last minute or so to lay one on her. So, at twelve years old (she did lie and say she was fourteen, teetering on crossing over to fifteen) she receives her first kiss from Lance Romero and she has never forgotten it. When she finds herself at his house all those years later, she is pretty devastated that he doesn’t remember her at all and is even more upset when he takes her friend to his room.

Lance’s backstory is fucked up and that’s me being polite. When our introduction to Lance began, we knew he was in some sort of a relationship with Tash, the trainer for the team. They then make an appearance at the engagement party of Alex and Violet, causing quite a scene, and we began to salivate, wanting to know what the fuck was going on between them-what exactly was their story? So, going into this book, here is what we already know-we know that Lance and Tash were off and on and we know that Tash lost her job with the team because of the relationship between her and Lance, we were also led to believe (somewhat) that Lance’s reputation is one that enjoys many women and enjoys the run of the mill puck bunny and maybe that was why the relationship between him and Tash was strained at best. But other than a small side story, we weren’t given too much more, every cameo raised more questions than it did in providing answers. 

There isn’t too much I can tell you regarding Lance and Tash. . .I will say that you get some answers quite early on and if your image of Lance was one of dislike, it will change, quickly. And if your vision of Tash was one of hope, well hells bells, that’s gonna change too.

Back to Poppy. Poppy is a massage therapist who happens to get scheduled to work on Lance, which is how they reconnect. Well, it’s how Poppy reconnects with Lance, not Lance with her, considering he has no recollection of the girl with the red ponytail who he swapped spit with in a closet or the woman who was at his house just a year ago. And if you haven’t yet figured it out, that is how Lance and Poppy eventually become a Lance + Poppy.

There are so many different avenues that brings this story to fruition. Lance’s backstory, while fucked up, is heartbreaking. It is filled with pain, it is filled with regret, it is filled with anger, it is filled with doubt, it is filled with grief. . .it was painful enough to force a BXTCH to lay it down and take some deep breaths, but no worries-hope is on the horizon.

While I believe that this is a fantastic ensemble series, this particular book is more zeroed in on Lance and Poppy, which is probably why Helena Hunting puts it as a standalone (but still heed my warning). We do get visits from the ones we have already fallen in love with or at the very least get a “Where Are They Now” type of catch up. Other than Lance and Poppy, the other main character that brings relevance is Tash. You’re not gonna like her, she is written in the most bitchtacular way that you may get pretty pissed at yourself for ever thinking that a Lance/Tash story was even a possibility, but that just adds so much more to an already fantastic story-don’t ya think?

I could say that the sex in Pucked Off is panty drop worthy and it is, but this isn’t the same as what Alex and Violet have or the need that Randy and Lily have. . .don’t misunderstand me, it’s hot, it’s everything you would want and have come to expect with this series. The difference with Pucked Off versus the rest of this series is Lance. As hot as he is and regardless of the experience he brings to the bedroom, it’s more than just the fuck, it’s more than just the conquest. It’s much more about the unearthing of who Lance is and who Lance is when he is with Poppy. . .it’s almost carthartic. Don’t worry BXTCHES, you still may need to light one up after.

I have loved every single installment in this series. And with each new book, I think that there is no way I will love it the way I loved the previous book(s) and truthfully, I love each couple in this series in a different way, but for me personally, Randy and Lily, barely beating out the other ones, landed in the top spot. . .that is until Lance came along. While the other books gave us some serious laugh out loud humor, Pucked Off didn’t. There were funny moments for sure, but that’s not what it was about. This book came from a different part of Helena Huntings soul, it had to. . .the spectrum of emotions that this story covered had this BXTCH all over the place. I was happy, I was sad, I was angry, I was in love, I was ready to cut a bitch for real. My advice is to just hang on real tight, because Lance is going to take you down a bumpy road and from the looks at that fuck hot cover, you just know it’s gonna be a great journey.Bxtches Be Reading5 Star Read for Bxtches Be ReadingPucked Off (Pucked Series, Book #6) by Helena Hunting | Review on www.bxtchesbeblogging.com

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
