The Seat Filler

This celebrity romance by Sariah Wilson was pretty fun. Some parts seemed implausible to me (like the misunderstanding that tears them apart at one point), but the author did a good job at the end making you semi-believe it could happen. It wasn’t my favorite Sariah Wilson book, but I still enjoyed it a lot. She always does a great job at immersing you into the Hollywood lifestyle.

Juliet Nolan, our heroine in this one, is helping out her best friend by being a seat-filler for a Hollywood award’s night (so the venue looks at full capacity on camera). She ends up being assigned to sit next to Noah Douglas, the heartthrob bigtime actor that she’s been in love with since junior high. But when he talks down to her, thinking she’s a stalker, she tells him she’s never heard of him before and tries to knock his ego down a peg or two. The two get further tangled up later when she ends up at his house to wash his dog (she’s a dog groomer).

It’s a silly story line (yet one many people probably dream about), but this author makes it work. That’s one reason I like her books. She writes fun characters and has crazy celebrity stories, and does a decent job making you journey into the lifestyle of the rich and famous vicariously. If you want a light, fun read to take your mind off your troubles, this is a great book to do that. I definitely recommend it.

Happy reading,

Roommaid

This was a super cute contemporary romance by Sariah Wilson. The gist of the story is this: Madison Huntington is desperate. She’s been disinherited by her rich and influential family because she has chosen to become a teacher, not the lawyer they demanded she be. Alone, without enough pennies to her name, she is seeking for an apartment close to the school where she will start teaching in the fall. Her aunt finds her an option to live with a man who travels a ton and needs a roommate to live with him for free, in exchange for some light housekeeping and dog sitting.

She jumps on the deal, especially when she sees her new roommate, Tyler, who is the most gorgeous man she’s ever met. But he has just one rule: no liking each other romantically. He’s been bitten by a roommate crushing on him in the past, and he refuses to go through that ordeal again. So with a white lie that she is in a serious relationship, Madison gets the position.

Just a BOYfriend

nr5Sariah Wilson always writes super fun romances. Her latest, Just a BOYfriend, is no exception. Lots of twisty-twists and deep-seeded demons for the characters to overcome, a forbidden romance that drives the heart crazy, and awesome characters you can’t help but love.

In this book, Bash (Ian Sebastian) returns to town. His family is excited. Everyone that is except for Ember…who unfortunately became his step-sister when their parents eloped to Vegas after dating for a month.

What Ember and Bash never told anyone was that they were once-upon-a-time secret girlfriend/boyfriend in high school…before their parents met and caught them all up in their whirlwind. But Bash moved away after Ember told him she loved him, and she hasn’t seen him for three long years. Continue reading

The FriEND Zone

friend zoneHere’s another fantastic, fun read for summer! I love Sariah Wilson’s romances. They are both funny and swoony. You can’t ever go wrong with her books. Her newest release was star-worthy material. The characters, Logan Hunt and Jess, meet each other when he comes to play football for her father at a junior college in Washington after getting kicked off a superior college team in Texas for a bar brawl. The new coach has rules—#1 being stay away from girls, especially his daughter, Jess. When she is paired up with him to tutor him in math, sparks sizzle, but they must keep their relationship strictly in the friend zone. But when the sparks ignite into flames, will they be able to keep their feelings in check and keep her dad from discovering their forbidden romance?

I read this one in a day. It was captivating. The characters were fun, their inner demons great, but my favorite part was the last quarter of the book when Logan really grows and determines to be the man he knows he can be so he can respect himself. Love-loved seeing his courage to do what was right. The romance was swoon-worthy, and it was just a feel-good book with funny parts that made me laugh. I love how this author always writes fun, clean romances that still have sizzle.

And on the sizzling note, enjoy your 4th of July if you live in the good ole’ USA. Have a sizzling BBQ and sizzling fireworks, and if you need even more sizzle, grab a copy of this book! You won’t regret it.

TEASER

Ambitious intern Ashton Bailey is about to get closer to her dream of being a sports announcer. All she has to do is prove that too-perfect-to-be-true NFL quarterback Evan Dawson isn’t quite as wholesome as his contract requires. It’s also the perfect opportunity to get delicious payback on the boy who broke her teenage heart. At least that’s her plan. But she forgot just how easy it is to crush on the irresistible charmer. #OhNoNotAgain. Continue reading

#Moonstruck

augnewrel10Awesome Book Alert!!!

This book was so much fun. It’s the second stand-alone book in this series, and let me tell you…this author writes great stories in this trope. So swoony. So funny. So perfect.

Here’s the blurb:

After pop star Ryan De Luna praises Maisy Harrison’s YouTube cover of his classic hit, he offers Maisy and her fledgling band the opportunity of a lifetime: to be his opening act.

Music may be Maisy’s life, but she has one ground rule: never date a musician. That goes double for a heartbreaker like Ryan. If only she didn’t feel so vulnerable to his larger-than-life charm. Continue reading
