Egotistical Jerk by A.K. MacBride
I had one goal: To learn from Sebastian Ryker.
He was an award-winning physician in his field of medicine.
A genius who could diagnose you with the barest of symptoms.
The best of the best.
Too bad he turned out to be an egotistical jerk.
Mere hours into my first day, I realized that the man I had idolized for years didn’t live up to the hype.
He was rude, arrogant, and totally full of… himself.
It was clear that my presence bothered him, that I was nothing more than an irritation.
So, why did I want to melt into a puddle whenever those dark eyes were trained on me?
And why didn’t I listen when my head warned my heart that he’d break it in two?
I had one goal: To learn from Sebastian Ryker, not fall in love with him.

I loved this story from the moment I began reading. There’s a spark to the author’s voice that I felt in the prose and it pulled at me. I don’t know how to explain it (obviously) but it was more than just the storyline that captivated me, it was the way it was told. I liked Mia and Sebastian both instantly and I knew that once they let their barriers down their chemistry would explode! And it did!! LOL Touching story full of great banter and passion all wrapped up in a huge dose of heart! My first read by this author and I’m looking forward to more!

Contemptuous CEO by K.L. Myers
Alexander (Xander) Livingston left college with the dream of becoming CEO of his uncle’s technology company. Nine years later, all his dreams have come true. All except for one: marrying the love of his life.
Madison (Maddie) Hightower had always been a loner until Xander came along. Devastated after he left her behind to chase his dreams, she focused all her energy on becoming president of a digital software company – the same business Xander is slated to take over. Even after all these years, her attraction for Xander is still sizzling and palpable. He still makes her heart sing, but she isn’t sure if he feels the same way.
Xander is interested in the merger for two reasons. The first is the potential for growth in the digital market, and the second is a chance to reconnect with Maddie. He’s never forgotten her. She was supposed to be by his side as he climbed the corporate ladder, and now he has the opportunity to swoop in, buy the company, and have Maddie working under him. Literally.
But Maddie had a secret. One she never told Xander when he left her in California and headed to the East Coast— a secret she never thought he’d ever uncover.
The merger of their companies will bring Xander face to face with Maddie’s life-altering betrayal. How he handles this discovery will determine the future for both and decide the fates of these two star-crossed lovers.

Okay, so the story was very predictable for me, but I couldn’t put it down. Weird, I know!! LOL The prose flowed so easily that before I knew it, the story was over! The author gets mad props for that! There’s something to be said about a predictable story that isn’t boring! Amirite? I found both Maddie and Xander to be very relatable and the story was not off putting in the least. I think it’s a great story despite its predictability *shrug*
British Black Sheep by Lauren Smith
He is exactly the kind of man Brie Honeyweather swore never to love…or lust after ever again: a sexy, arrogant, British bad boy in a designer suit. Alec is the last person Brie wants to be stuck on an international flight to London with, but hey…at least they’re in first class.
When their flight has to make an emergency landing in a snowstorm just before Christmas, Brie and Alec are thrown together in a single bedroom in a tiny English village. As the snowstorm rages outside, things get intense and emotions and lust run hot. Alec reminds Brie just how much she misses being with a man and how easy it is to fall head over heels too fast.
What should have been an amazing one-night stand turns into a week-long secret romance at Alec’s family estate when Brie realizes her new boss is Alec’s mother, a British countess. While Brie tries to focus on writing a Christmas book with the countess, all she can think about is getting back into bed with Alec.
She shouldn’t fall for the arrogant brit, especially when their lives are oceans apart and neither of them wants a serious relationship. But Christmas magic has a way of working miracles. Maybe Santa will bring her a happy ending after all…

I loved this story to pieces! Is that the saying? Lol I think it is. I just wanted it to go on forever! I’m not new to the world of Lauren Smith so I was fairly certain that I would enjoy the heck out of this story and that it would be very well written but I mean I want to be friends with Alex and Brie right now!! Such enjoyable characters that just came to life on the page! It was fantastic! All of fit!
Audacious Fiancé by Liz Lovelock
Years ago, he broke me.
Now he’s back with a proposition.
He needs a fake fiancée, and I’m the one he’s come to.
Audacious— that’s how I would describe him. He was my first love, my first kiss, and my first heartbreak, from which I never truly healed.
Kane was once the man of my dreams, on paper—strong, handsome, and a complete charmer. But the problem is, he has never given a damn about anyone but himself.
I’ve never witnessed a desperate man until Kane knocked on my door with literally the proposal of a lifetime.
I must admit, it’s ironic he’s come to me given the way things ended between us.
It’s possibly the worst idea ever, but I need the money. How do I not fall for Kane all over again and risk history repeating itself? Only time will tell.

A year in Australia working as a doctor sounds like a great idea to Autumn. She can escape the cold English weather, her ex-husband and a stalker. A year to get her life back together and not have any romantic involvements.
‘Love them and leave them wanting’ is Brett’s motto. That is until he sees Doctor Autumn Blake. This lady just might get through that tough layer he has built around himself.
Can the sexual chemistry they feel be just that, or could it be more?
Is one year long enough for these two people to forget their pasts and grab onto a chance of love or will they lose it forever.

Unfortunately, this story did not work for me overall. There are a lot of plot points happening in this story that overwhelmed me as a reader. Not that they did not make sense per say but they just made the story overwhelming, with too much conflict and angst. UGH I just had to erase three sentences of explaining this because they give away the story! I don’t want to do that because this could very well be a me thing. Hence why I am middle of the road with my rating. There’s a sentimentality that is woven into the story that adds a lot of depth to Autumn’s character and I appreciate that the author represented her properly, or at least it read that way to me. So, I’m not sure whether I’m recommending this book or not LOL but I’m not not 🙂
