Title: Rock Courtship
Author: Nalini Singh
Series: Rock Kiss #1.5

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Goodreads | Amazon

A drummer for the hottest rock band on the planet, David has a single, powerful weakness: Thea, the band's publicist and the woman who steals his breath away with her every move.
Only problem is, Thea doesn't date clients--or musicians. Emotionally scarred by a cheating ex, she's not about to risk her heart with a man who has groupies buzzing around him like flies. Even if his sexy smile ties her up in knots.
What she doesn't know is that David is a one-woman man...and he's madly in love with her. David's determined to prove he's worth the risk, and willing to court her, step by exquisite step. Thea's about to discover just how long and hard this handsome drummer can play.
Just WoW!

I thought this series couldn't get any better but apparently I was so wrong (Thank God!).

In Rock Addiction we got to see Fox and Molly's story but it was also the book that Thea, Molly's sister and the band's managed and David, the band's drummer began to fall in love.

Rock courtship tells us how these totally different characters found each other. The book picks up where the previous book left off.

Thea may be the band's manager but she knows that if she wants to be taken seriously she better keep her distance. David is the total opposite from her. Once upon a time he may have admited his fellings to Thea but after been shot down he knows he must take another approach. And he does..

Thea believes that she deserves some time off after working so hard for the band. While on vacation though she can't but keep an eye on the band and that's when she gets the first memo. David won't quit until he gets his HEA. So, it begins. Thea and David exchange a lot of memos in which they argue why they should be a couple. They memos start to get so hot that they both anticipate the time they meet again. And when they do, sparks begin to fly...

Even before reading the book, we do know some info about Thea and David but we don't know the info that really matters. If you've read the previous book then you must be surely wondering why Thea is so cold and avoids men and many other questions. This book will answer those questions. Actually the book provides more than answers. It gives us a lot of background on Thea and David and their families as well. I thought that I knew all about the band in the first book but after reading Rock courtship I feel like I knew nothing.

I really loved this book but there were times that the flow was very slow. This book is a novella, which means it's a lot smaller than an actual book so I excepcted a lot of action and less background. It's not that I didn't appreciate the background but I really wanted to see more action for Thea and David.

Despite that, I had no other problem with the book. As the previous book there was a major twist that almost ripped Thea and David apart but by then, they already trusted each other so there wasn't any big drama.

What I loved the most were the incredible memos they sent to each other. Eveytime I read one, I'd feel their passion, loneliness, anger and their happiness in the end.

As always, Nalini is one of my favourite authors and I absolutely recommend this book (especially if you've read book one).

Review: Reasonable Doubt Full Series (Reasonable Doubt #1-3) by Whitney Gracia Williams

Title: Reasonable Doubt Full Series
Author: Whitney Gracia Williams
Series: Reasonable Doubt #1-3

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

My cock has an appetite.

A huge and very particular appetite: Blonde, curvy, and preferably not a fucking liar...(Although, that's a story for another day.) As a high profile lawyer, I don't have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online.

My rules are simple: One dinner. One night. No repeats.

This is only casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less.

At least it was, until "Alyssa"...She was supposed to be a 27 year old lawyer, a book hoarder, and completely unattractive. She was supposed to be someone I shared law advice with late at night, someone I could trust with details of my weekly escapades.

But then she came into my firm for an interview--a college-intern interview, and everything fucking changed...

*SERIES REVIEW*

“I believe you and I are currently in an unfortunate web of deceit.”

Andrew Hamilton hates lies. Being a successful lawyer and a man that no body denies ever anything, Andrew is anything but honest himself. The last few years he's dedicated to his career, never seeking something more for himself than meaningless one-night stands. His only goal is to satisfy his needs (and his partner's) and if he can avoid the drama, even better.

Enter Aubrey Everhart (aka Alysa). Aubrey is a woman who is trying to balance her life between satisfying her parent's dreams and her own. All Aubrey ever wanted was to become a professional ballarina. All her parents ever wanted for her was to become a lawyer. So between struggling to fulfil both dreams, Aubrey needs some help. And who better help an upcoming lawyer than a successful layer.

Andrew and Aubrey first meet online. Aubrey needs help with her assignment while Andrew seeks the flavor of the night. He immediately becomes intrigued with her as she's the only woman who refuses him so fiercely. The more they interact the more attached they become. But when Aubrey and Audrew finally meet, their lies catch up to them...

This series was something new for me. I don't usually read series like this one but it was totally worth it. The story had a nice flow, which was the factor that worried me the most. Each book continues the story of the first book and cannot stand alone (or read as unique). In other words, the series contains three books that complete one story (it's not an actuall series but a story cut in three parts).

The main characters had quite a chemistry. Their physical attraction was hot, hot, hot. I really liked Aubrey becasue she makes it clear from the very beginning that she just doesn't do the one night thing. Andrew one the other hand, was a man who didn't know what he desired. Really! He made it clear that he hated lies when he himself was a total lie and he tried so hard to convince Aubrey that their "relationship" was nothing to him and she only gets one night when in the end he was the one running after her. I don't know, he completely confused me. Until I read book 3. Book 3 makes everything clearer.

While you read the first two books, you will often ask yourself why is this man the way he is and what happened to him to make him like this?! Well, since the last book is already out, you won't have to wait to get your answer. I guess sometimes the truth is really hard.

Reasonable doubt was a nice great series. I may not have loved Andrew but I definitely understood the reasons he acted as he did and I think that he was very strong to have survived something so dramatic. Despite everything though, I loved the writing and the way the author chose to present to us Andrew and Aubrey's story!!

Highly recommended!!!

Review: Lead (Stage Dive #3) by Kylie Scott

Posted on Monday, September 22, 2014 3:05 PM

Title: Lead
Author: Kylie Scott
Series: Stage Dive #3

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N | BookDepo

As the lead singer of Stage Dive, Jimmy is used to getting whatever he wants, whenever he wants it, whether it's booze, drugs, or women. However, when a PR disaster serves as a wake-up call about his life and lands him in rehab, he finds himself with Lena, a new assistant to keep him out of trouble.  

Lena's not willing to take any crap from the sexy rocker and is determined to keep their relationship completely professional, despite their sizzling chemistry. But when Jimmy pushes her too far and Lena leaves, he realizes that he may just have lost the best thing that ever happened to him.
“The truth is, I’m all about you, Lena. You’re my best friend. You’re my girl.”

Ever since reading Play I've been really anxious to read this one. Lead is the fourth book in the Stage Dive series and tells the story of Jimmy, lead singer of Stage Dive and David's brother and Lena, his "assistant".

Jimmy has royally messed up and after his brother's warning he knows that he only has one more chance or his out of the band. In order to stay clean, the band decides to hire an assistant or just a person to help him stay clean and that's when Lena comes in. Lena has familly issiues which makes her decision to help Jimmy a lot easier. Lena has to live with Jimmy and keep him in line 24/7. But as they spend more and more time together the boundaries between their professional relationship begin to blur...

Just WOW. This book was just so different from the other books in the series. Lena was the best heroine in the series. That girl just rocked. She was so confident, smart, sassy, strong and I loved how she handled Jimmy. She never let him him get away with anything and Jimmy had some big huge issiues. So, yeah, Lena was the perfect candidate for the job. Despite everything though, Lena is completly honest with Jimmy. When she felt that her feelings might get in the way she decided to quit. But Jimmy being Jimmy convinced her to start dating other guys in order to get over him. But as Lena starts dating other guys Jimmy realizes that he may have just lost the best thing that ever happened to him.

Jimmy isn't your typical rockstar either. He might have made a few (huge) mistakes but that's all behind him. He exercises, being healthy and left the past behind him. Jimmy doesn't trust many people but with Lena things are different. With her he can be his true self. He doesn't hide anything from her. That's what I really admired about them, how honest they both were with each other.

All in all, the book was amazing!!! Actually every book in the series has been amazing but this one was just unique! It was filled with romance, lots of humor and I really got the characters. I can't wait for Ben's book.

Totally recommended!!!
