The Billionaire Bad Boys Club by Emma Holly

I Sometimes wonder what brings me to books like The Billionaire Bad Boys Club by Emma Holly.  I may not know the full reason for my interest.  Maybe it is just something that my conservative heart could never do, but to each their own.  Yes, this book is a Menage.  This was not my first Menage book, but for some reason it is one of my most memorable ones I have read.

MY REVIEW

When as teenagers, next door neighbors Trey and Zane realize they have more in common than they originally thought, they help each other out.  Now working together, they own a business that is growing larger and more popular.  Then there is Rebecca, who gave up everything in order to raise her younger twin brothers.  She worked hard as a teen to not let anyone take the two boys away and split up their family.  While doing this she found and developed a skill and love for cooking.

Though a short meeting between the three has some effect on them it is not until years later that anything happens.  With her applying to be the chef at their newest business venture and her brothers making the “Men of Harvard” edition of their magazine, every aspect of her life seems to have The Bad Boys Club in it.

Character development is good.  You don’t just have this struggling cook with the billionaires.  You get a few glimpses of what led them down their life path.  My favorite character in this book will have to be Rebecca, as the oldest sibling I get the need to take care of the younger siblings.  I am just glad I was never put in this position.  I also like the struggle on Zanes part to be more accepting of what he feels.  It is probably the most important part of this book, though I do read it for the love story.

I was really satisfied with  The Billionaire Bad Boys Club.   It was a good read with a decent plot line and good characters.

Self-made billionaires Zane and Trey have been a club of two since they were eighteen. They’ve done everything together: play football, fall in love, even get smacked around by their dads. The only thing they haven’t tried is seducing the same woman. When they set their sights on sexy chef Rebecca, these bad boys just might have met their match!

Blog Tour: Wooing the Wedding Planner

When I signed up to do the blog tour for Wooing the Wedding Planner by Amber Leigh Williams, there was no plans for the flu, Jury Duty and any other life disturbances but I got them all.  I did find time to read this book during the jury selection process.

I will admit, Wooing the Wedding Planner was a little slow to start.  It took me a few chapters to get into the book, but once I did it was a really good read.

MY REVIEW

When a lack of communication has Roxie agreeing to rent the house that Byron plans to purchase, they are sent on another plan of living together for a year since Bryon already lives in the garage loft.  Putting two people who already are attracted to each other in close proximity will lead to nothing but romance.

Overall I like the characterization of Roxie, she is a girl who has been to the low point in her life.  She may still struggle with the need to be accepted for who she is with the people in her life, but she knows what is really important.  With her romance with Byron she even discovers what she deserves.

The overall plot line is more believable than other romances out there.  Two people who live in the same town, know each other in passing and even find the other attractive being thrown together.  This is a very believable romance (more so than the billionaire stories I love to read).  Yes like all romances it also has a very predictable ending.  Something I have to thank Amber Leigh Williams for, my new dream wedding.

No more wedding marches for her! Wedding planner Roxie Honeycutt can make happy-ever-after come true for anyone except herself. Freshly divorced and done with love, she's okay with watching clients walk down the aisle. What's not okay? Sharing a charming Victorian house with accountant Byron Strong. He's frustratingly sexy and determined to keep her confused. Roxie thought Byron's expertise was numbers, yet somehow he sees her for who she really is. Somehow he understands the hurt she hides behind a trademark smile. Suddenly romance is tempting again, even if it means risking another heartbreak.

Her Ruthless Russian by Leslie North

To Start off the new year and this blog, I started with the quick read Her Ruthless Russian by Leslie North. Her Ruthless Russian is the first book in Karev Brothers Series which I got as an ARC on Netgalley for an honest review.

My Review

Over all I really did like this book.  It had a good story line and a little mystery to keep you interested.  Though that is where I found my dislike “a little mystery”.  The background story-line of who killed Vlad’s father is interesting, who killed the mob boss and why.  Though I would love to know more, I also know it can be found in book two of the Karev Brothers.

The romance is good too.  Both are just using the other to get what they want and this leads to a great love.  They start with this love hat thing that is really good for the two of them.  Can true love be found when you are trying to get the other to give you the information you need?

Like I said overall I really did like this book but I also wish it was a little longer and go more in depth on who is out to kill them.  Will I be reading book two of the Karev Brothers? Yes.  Will it be soon? Maybe.  Am I looking forward to it?  YES.

About the Author

Leslie North is the pen name for a critically-acclaimed author of women’s contemporary romance and fiction. The anonymity gives her the perfect opportunity to paint with her full artistic palette, especially in the romance and erotic fantasy genres.

The truth of the matter is she loves her fictional persona, Leslie North, more than her normal, day-to-day persona! Her bestselling books focus on strong characters and particularly women who aren’t afraid to challenge an alpha male. Inspired after years of travel, her stories are set all over the world, from the tough streets of Russia to the beautiful beaches of the middle east.

Leslie fell in love with romance when she first picked up a scrappy, dog-eared romance book from her local library. She began writing soon after and the rest, as they say, was history. She now lives in a cozy cottage on the British coast and enjoys taking long walks with her two Dalmatians, George and Fergie.

Born into a Russian Mafia family, Vlad Karev is no stranger to violence…but this time it’s personal. Someone has murdered his father and Vlad can’t rest until he finds the killer. When the trail leads to an art gallery, Vlad wants to dig deeper, but he needs help from the owner’s daughter. The pretty redhead is far too innocent for a man like Vlad, but he’ll do what it takes to get the information he needs. His obligations are to the family, even if that means using the fiery woman.

Madison O’Connor works hard to keep her family’s gallery going, although secretly she has little interest in art. But when she discovers her father’s been laundering money for the Russian Mafia, she’ll do everything she can to keep him out of jail. She hates to lie, but she has a plan…seduce the Russian bad boy to learn the mob’s secrets. Never mind his dangerous exterior or icy blue eyes, Madison’s going to get her family free of the mob, even if she has to use Vlad Karev to do it.

As the killer gets closer, so do Vlad and Madison. But is their connection just the means to an end, or could their romance be real?
