REVIEW: Love Sincerely Yours by Meghan Quinn & Sara Ney!

Dear Mister...**strike out** no, too formal.

Hey there sweet cheeks *strike out* no, too forward.

To whom it may concern,

Full disclosure; before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer—because it was free.

I think it’s important to be open and honest with your co-workers, don’t you?

So here I am, being honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide.

I like you so much it’s clouding my judgment and making me do things I never would sober. Like write this letter.

I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. Your bark is worse then your bite, and you don’t scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.

For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees.

And as long as we're being honest, that navy blue suit you wear? With the crisp white shirt? It really makes me want to loosen your tie and show you who’s boss.

OMG this book was so freaking awesome- and so FUN! I usually love all the feels books best, but I swear, 2018 has been the year of rom-coms for me. Meghan Quinn and Sara Ney did a fantastic job co-writing this book. I’ve loved books from both of them individually, but they really shined together! I couldn’t get enough of Peyton, Rome, their emails and banter.

Peyton has it bad for her hot boss. Yes, her boss is hot, but he’s also known as the arrogant prick, the sadist of the office. Peyton doesn’t care. There is something about him that she likes. She sees something there. And in an anonymous email, she lets him know her feelings. Well, if feelings translates into ‘I want to bang you’ anyway. 

When Rome gets this email, he doesn’t know what to think. Of course it’s highly inappropriate of course, and then, maybe it’s a prank? He can’t be sure. All he knows is he’s intrigued by this employee of his. Rome owns a successful business and to maintain that he’s spent so much time being all business. Whoever this woman is, she’s made him smile and laugh more than he has in years. So he keeps responding to this mystery woman, even though he knows he shouldn’t.

One of my favorite things about this book were the emails. I loved reading them, and with reading them, we got to see a whole different side of Rome. Peyton was a fantastic and fun heroine and I loved Rome, even if he was a bit brash at times. They were a great paring and I rooted for them to be together. Their back and forth was comical, witty, and the best part of the book.

I love office romances, enemies to lovers stories, and rom-coms. This was a fantastic mix of all 3. I laughed out loud, I smiled non-stop, and swooned hardcore. I loved this book so much! I hope we get more from this writing duo because they knocked it out of the park with their first book together! Love, Sincerely, Yours is a must read!
I open the company messenger app on my phone and scroll through the executive names, knowing full well I’m about to break a policy. It’s the company’s phone, and the company’s app, and I’m about to use it for personal use. To flirt.

With my boss.

I close my eyes, find his name—next to it is a little, green dot, which means. . .

He’s on the app.

I’ve never talked to him live before so this is a huge step, but then again, it might be more fun to get his initial reactions to my comments.

Debating it for all but two seconds, I type out a message to him, making sure I’m signed on under my LSY persona.

My text turns into a new message on the app and I wait on bated breath to see if he will respond. Nerves prickle up my spine, my fingers feeling numb, my mind playing mutiny with my heart just as little dots appear letting me know he’s typing.

Oh God, I don’t think I’ve been more excited.

Sara Ney is the USA Today Bestselling Author of the How to Date a Douchebag series, and is best known for her sexy, laugh-out-loud New Adult romances. Among her favorite vices, she includes: iced latte's, historical architecture and well-placed sarcasm. She lives colorfully, collects vintage books, art, loves flea markets, and fancies herself British.

She lives with her husband, children, and her ridiculously large dog.

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Player by Staci Hart is LIVE and a 5 star favorite!


I should have known it was only a game.

I should have known he was too good to be true.

He’s nothing but a player...

Player, an all-new sexy, standalone romantic comedy from Staci Hart, is LIVE!


He’s a player.

He plays the bass with expert fingers. He plays women with intoxicating charm. And he’ll play me with the ease of a virtuoso.

Who better to teach me to play than the master himself?

I’m his model student, front row, pencil sharp. Pick up lines? I’ve got them. Free drinks? By the dozen. Kissing? Let me grab my chapstick.

But the most valuable lesson I’ve learned is that there’s so much I don’t know. Like why his touch sets off a chain reaction straight to my nethers. Or how I’m certain each kiss is the best I’ll ever have, until the moment his lips take mine again.

There’s so much I don’t know.

Like the fact that I’m only a bet.

But we are what we are. He’s a player, through and through.

And I’m the fool who fell in love with him.

“Everyone knows this. No one storms the castle for the príncipe. They come for la princesa.”

You know that giddy feeling you get while reading a book? The butterflies in your stomach, perma-grin on your face? That is the exact feeling I got while reading Staci Hart’s Player. I’ve read (and loved) a lot of her books, but this book has to be her best yet. I loved everything about it. Just thinking about it and writing this review is leaving me with a huge smile on my face.

Val is part of the RLC (red lipstick coalition) and is a strong and independent woman, but when it comes to men, she’s not so confident. She has some body issues from hitting puberty young and she’s never really felt comfortable in her own skin. She is an uber talented musician who plays in the orchestra of a broadway show. Along with Sam. Sam is Val’s crush. He plays the base. And that’s not all he plays. He’s all around a player. But she has it bad for him anyway.

Val never thought Sam would notice her, but he does. Sam genuinely likes Val and is attracted to her, but he doesn’t do relationships. Still, he offers to teach her a thing or two about dating.
Val just was. She was the most refreshing woman I’d met in years.

Every scene with Val and Sam… sigh. I loved the music, the dancing, Val’s hilarious pick up lines, and Sam was just everything. This book was everything! It was so much more than a romance. Sure, the love story between these two was fantastic, but Val coming into her own, learning to love and accept herself… It was the best part of the book. And she couldn’t have done it without Sam. Even Sam himself realized he was so much more than he thought he was. Sam isn’t just a player. Sam is capable of more than just some fun in the sack. I loved that they both were able to bring out the best parts of each other.

The romance between Val and Sam was sweet and tender, yet funny and heartwarming. I loved them together. As friends, as more, they just had this amazing chemistry. Chemistry with their music, their dancing, and especially between the sheets.
“Fuck, you’re beautiful,” he groaned as he fucked my mouth. “You’re perfect. You don’t need me, Val. You’re fucking perfect.”

Player was fun, flirty, touching, steamy, and had so much heart. My heart is so full after reading. It had just enough angst to keep me completely enthralled through out and just enough emotion to give me the feels I need to make it a 5 star favorite. It’s a breath of fresh air and a beautiful romance I highly recommend! This will definitely be going on my top favorites of the year!

“You and I have become a fact.”

Fight or Flight by Samantha Young is LIVE!

A series of chance encounters leads to a sizzling new romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series. 

The universe is conspiring against Ava Breevort. As if flying back to Phoenix to bury a childhood friend wasn't hell enough, a cloud of volcanic ash traveling from overseas delayed her flight back home to Boston. Her last ditch attempt to salvage the trip was thwarted by an arrogant Scotsman, Caleb Scott, who steals a first class seat out from under her. Then over the course of their journey home, their antagonism somehow lands them in bed for the steamiest layover Ava's ever had. And that's all it was--until Caleb shows up on her doorstep.

When pure chance pulls Ava back into Caleb's orbit, he proposes they enjoy their physical connection while he's stranded in Boston. Ava agrees, knowing her heart's in no danger since a) she barely likes Caleb and b) his existence in her life is temporary. Not long thereafter Ava realizes she's made a terrible error because as it turns out Caleb Scott isn't quite so unlikeable after all. When his stay in Boston becomes permanent, Ava must decide whether to fight her feelings for him or give into them. But even if she does decide to risk her heart on Caleb, there is no guarantee her stubborn Scot will want to risk his heart on her....

Christy's Review: 

4 stars!

   photo IMG_1991_zpsoznn5ykr.png

I love a good enemies to lovers story. There is something about that love/hate relationship that makes me giddy. When Ava Breevort meets Caleb Scott at an airport, there is no love lost between them. Of course, they end up on the same flight sitting right next to each other. Ava has never met anyone as rude and grouchy as Caleb. He may be a bit of a bastard, but he's gorgeous, rugged, and Scottish. With all the animosity floating around them, there is a ton of chemistry, too. This lands them in bed together during an unexpected and extended layover.

Ava is sure she'll never see Caleb again and she is fine with that. Even though it was the best sex of her life, she can't stand the guy. Fate has other plans. These two are thrust into each others lives time and time again. Though they can't seem to get along, they also can't seem to stay away from each other. There really is a very thin line between love and hate....

Ava was a heroine I really did enjoy reading about. She had this really put together outside, but she had a lot going on underneath that. I loved seeing her growth and watching her come out of her shell a bit and realize everything didn't have to be perfect all the time. She could just be herself. Then there is Caleb... Like Ava, I had a bit of a love hate relationship with this man. There were parts that I truly did love his character and I think for the most part, he's a great guy. But, there were also parts where things he said and did made me really upset and I'm surprised Ava was as forgiving as she was. I'm not sure I would have been. Still, by the end, I was very happy with  how the story turned out!

Samantha Young's writing was fantastic as always. I don't think this author knows how to write a bad book. I've enjoyed every book of hers I've read, and I've read about them all. Fight or Flight was completely addicting and fun, but it was also emotional and sexy. Overall, this was a great read. Recommend for anyone who loves contemporary romance and a good enemies to lovers story.
