๐Ÿ’œSHIMMY BANG SPARKLE  by Nicola Rendell 
This book was so fun! It’s like a rom-com and heist movie all rolled into one! Nick and Stella has crazy hot chemistry and it was such a fun read!

I’m a sucker for CoHo’s books and if I’m forced to pick Maybe Someday is my fave! I love Ridge and Sydney so much and this story was so beautiful!

[Cover Reveal] MAKE ME BAD by R. S. Grey


R.S. Grey's next romantic comedy, MAKE ME BAD, releases March 7th!

Check out the cover and find out more about MAKE ME BAD below!



About MAKE ME BAD 

- Available March 7th! -

I was issued a warning: stay away from Ben Rosenberg.

As Clifton Cove’s resident “king”, he thinks he’s entitled to anyone and anything.

The trouble is, I’ve spent my whole life following the rules and playing it safe. I know what it feels like to be the good girl. I’m the police chief’s daughter and a librarian—for adorable children, no less. My wardrobe consists of colorful sundresses and baggy jeans. I might as well have a Post-it stuck to my forehead that reads: Yup, she’s a virgin.

An all-nighter with a fictional hunk is about as exciting as my life gets, until one day, fate decides to take pity on me and shove me straight into the path of Mr. Off-Limits himself.

Oof.

Just as I suspected, every inch of him promises to be my demise. Up close, he’s tall, menacing, dangerously handsome—the type of man who’s never spent a single moment worrying about the opinions of others. A well-behaved girl would do as she’s told and avoid him at all costs, but I’m overdue for a little rebellion.

No more Friday nights sprawled out on the couch in my comfiest pajamas. No more wishing I had the courage to misbehave.

Everyone thinks Ben is going to ruin me.

They think he’ll chew me up and spit me out.

Well, Ben…go ahead.

Tempt me. Taunt me.

Make me bad.

[Blog Tour Review] LESSONS FROM A ONE-NIGHT STAND (The Baileys #1) by Piper Rayne


LESSONS FROM A ONE-NIGHT STAND
(The Baileys #1)
By Piper Rayne
Source: Received from InkslingerPR to participate in blog tour.
Release Date: February 7, 2019
DESCRIPTION:

If you find yourself having banged your new boss—the principal—in the back of your Jeep one drunken night, here’s a few takeaways based on my experience...

Lesson One: Always get her FULL name.

Lesson Two: Consider asking what she does for a living.

Lesson Three: Find out why she’s moved to town. Get details. Details are crucial.

Lesson Four: Don’t alter her bio in front of an auditorium of high school students unless you know she has a sense of humor for that sort of thing.

Lesson Five: If you ignore Lesson Four, apologize instead of flirt when you’re sent to the principal’s office.

Lesson Six: NEVER sleep with her again.

Lesson Seven: Pay attention to this one—it’s the most important of them all.

Don’t fall for your one-night stand.

Class dismissed.

REVIEW

I'm always incredibly excited whenever I see that the amazing author duo of Piper and Rayne have something new planned...so when I first heard about their upcoming series, The Baileys, centred around nine siblings from a small town in Alaska called Lake Starlight...I was immediately intrigued! This is Piper Rayne's biggest planned series yet and the entire series sounds so fabulous! Now that I've finished the first book, LESSONS FROM A ONE-NIGHT STAND, which was all about the oldest Bailey sibling, Austin, I'm even more excited because this book was amazing!!! 

When it comes to characters, relationships, and dynamics between characters of any kind, Piper and Rayne are absolute experts! They have a way of crafting a world through their characters and all of their relationships, whether they're romantic, familiar, and filial (just about the friendship), and they always make them extremely well-rounded and never fail to compel me to want to read more. In LESSONS FROM A ONE-NIGHT STAND they're at their best! We saw nine different Bailey siblings and we got to see just how different each and every one of them was. I'm so excited to get a story for each of them...and I adore that Piper Rayne decided to focus each story around a well-known romance trope! Austin and Holly's story was clearly centred around the whole mystery one-night stand backfiring trope...and let me tell you it was executed to rom-com perfection! 

Austin and Holly themselves were amazing! Austin was a total fox and he was such a wonderful, thoughtful, and generous person. He had me swooning more than once, and I definitely can't wait to see him pop up in the future books. And I loved Holly, too! I loved how strong she was, and I loved that despite her strength she also had a vulnerable side. Together they were even better and I loved their steamy chemistry and I adored how they complemented one another! I also loved seeing how they fit into the Lake Starlight community! There's a certain gossip blog that seems like it's going to be pretty central to this series that I think everyone is going to get a real kick out of...I know I did! I also loved the Bailey matriarch, Grandma Dori! ;D

Overall, I absolutely loved LESSONS FROM A ONE-NIGHT STAND! It's an extremely strong start to Piper Rayne's biggest plan series yet, and it has me tremendously excited for what's in store for this series yet! Next up is Brooklyn's story: ADVICE FROM A JILTED BRIDE...can't wait!  I've always loved Piper and Rayne's character dynamics the best so the fact that we're going to get to see all of these characters for nine books has me thrilled! If you're a fan of rom-coms, especially if you love intricate companion series that are able to be read as standalones, then I think you'll love this, too...and I definitely think anyone who loves rom-coms in general will absolutely adore Austin and Holly! Highly, highly recommend this one...and I definitely suggest all rom-com fans check out Piper Rayne's backlist, too! ;)
