Friction by Emily Snow

Publication Date: January 18th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publisher: HEA Press

Friction a SEXY All-New Standalone from Emily Snow is now LIVE!

Former overachiever Lucy WillIams sucks at adulting.

Recent divorce, check.

Pending lawsuit, check.

A move back to Boston to live with her mother, triple check.

It can't get much worse, right?

When she starts her new marketing job at EXtreme Effects, she's positive shit’s stopped hitting the fan. Sure, what she's advertising is a little ... unorthodox, but it pays the bills. And since she's seconds away from becoming Lucy Williams: Wednesday Night Bingo Enthusiast, she needs money to get the hell out of her mother’s house.

The only problem is her boss, Mr. Extreme himself: Jace Exley. He’s everything any sane woman dreams of—alpha, successful, ridiculously gorgeous. He's also Lucy’s worst nightmare. Because like every overachiever, she has that underachiever she brushed off. The slacker who, once upon a time ago, was the object of her dirtiest schoolgirl fantasies.

Jace Exley—with his sarcastic smirk and delicious accent—just happens to be that guy.

And the friction between them?

Well, that's the only adulting Lucy seems to be winning at.

Lucy is pretty much down on her luck. Her husband has been cheating on her, she has no job and is currently living at home with her mother. For Lucy things can't get any worse since she's always been an overachiever and a know it all. As a last resort she takes a job working for her former classmate/crush Jace. 

Jace has always been a slacker growing up and used to make fun of Lucy and her overachieving ways. Jace has made a name for himself designing all kinds of sex toys and items. I loved Jace because he has such a dirty foul mouth and you never knew what to expect from him.  I loved how he pushed Lucy's buttons and would get her all riled up. These were some of the best moments in the book. 

There is a lot of sexual innuendos and tension in this book and I thought I was going to combust while I was reading! When they finally do get together OMG!!! You definitely want to read with the a/c on! I really liked Jace and Lucy together  because they were complete opposites and they balanced each other out. Lucy made Jace focus more and take life seriously while Jace taught Lucy how to lay back and explore her wild side. Jace was very different from her horrible soon to be  ex husband who did nothing to make her life miserable. They both gave each other what they both didn't know they needed. I love those kind of romances. 

This story had a good pace, the plot held my interest and I felt the connection between the characters. As a reader these are a must for me and Emily Snow delivered! There was an issue that happened towards the end of the book and I felt it was resolved just a little too fast. During this time I would have preferred more from Jace's point of view. Even with that tiny issue for  me I still thoroughly enjoyed this book!  In closing, Emily Snow is a new to me author who is now stuck with me as a reader!

Book Tour: Anti-Stepbrother by Tijan

Blurb
He told me to 'settle, girl.'  He asked if 'something was wrong with me?'  He said I was an ‘easy target.’  That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.  I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha. 
He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother. 
Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming. 
I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what would happen if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?
This is a story about a girl, her stepbrother and another guy who is the stepbrother’s complete opposite.  If it sounds like a cliché, I promise you it’s not.Summer is starting college and she’s going to the same college as Kevin, her stepbrother.  The small detail here? She’s had a crush on Kevin since HS, since before he became her stepbrot…

Review: Strung Out by Lyrica Creed

Title: Strung Out
Author: Lyrica Creed
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Rockband Romance/Stepbrother Romance Series: Yes but ends with a HEA and can be read as a standalone
Blurb: Finding my best friend and getting the hell out of California is top priority. Especially as the relationship with my rockstar stepbrother becomes more complicated with each passing day...

I’m on the tour bus partying!

The text from my best friend, Ivy, is one of her last. When weeks stretch with no further contact, I travel to L.A. to track down the band known as Rageon and find Ivy.

As the daughter of a groupie mom, and of a rock star father who fatally overdosed, I know the dangers of the world my friend disappeared into.

My ex-stepbrother, Gage, a musician who’s just come off tour invites me to crash at his place.

The last time I saw Gage in person, we were teens. He's everywhere on social media, so I’m prepared for the tattoo-covered rocker who answers my knock. What I’m not expecting to find is the sweet, s…
