[#SuperSexyGalentines] Week 3: Top 4 Romantic Reads




Woo hoo! We've reached Week 3 of the #SuperSexyBookClub’s #SuperSexyGalentines!

This week we're sharing our Top 4 Romantic Reads!

Now picking just 4 top books is super hard, so I tried to pick some that hadn’t made their way into my top 4 lists the last two weeks, but I just couldn’t resist leaving one in there.๐Ÿ’–



My Top 4 Romantic Reads include:

๐Ÿ’œ
THE KISS QUOTIENT by Helen Hoang 
Michael and Stella are amazing and this book had me laughing, swooning, crying and just feeling all the feels!

๐Ÿ’™VICIOUS by L.J. Shen 
 This was without a doubt my fave book of 2017 and it’s still one of my favourites today! I love Vicious and I love him with Emilia and I never get tired of reading their story and seeing them let each other in...soooo amazing!

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!

๐Ÿ’™MAYBE SOMEDAY by Coleen Hoover
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!

Special mentions include:
❣️
PUCKED OVER by Helena Hunting
❣️
ARCHER'S VOICE by Mia Sheridan
❣️
BEAUTIFUL PLAYER by Christina Lauren 
❣️BROOKLYNAIRE by Sarina Bowen
(I’m sure none of these are a surprise since they appeared in my other posts, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰)

[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! ;)

[Cover Reveal] JUNK MAIL by Kendall Ryan


JUNK MAIL
by Kendall Ryan
Release Date: April 23rd, 2019
DESCRIPTION:

It all started with a sexy selfie.



Texted to the wrong number.



Oops.



Not my finest moment—but I have nothing to be ashamed of.



She thought I was no better, and I quote, than the knuckle-dragging douche-bags she was never dating again.



It was a stupid dare from a girl I’d met online, but since she’d given me a fake number, I didn’t feel bad that my interests were suddenly focused elsewhere—on the fiery and sharp-tongued, Peyton that I found myself sparring with over text for the rest of the evening.



The following day, my case of mistaken identity came back to bite me in the banana.



When I strolled into the office, I was introduced to Peyton as the new client I needed to win over. The Peyton, in case you're not tracking.



And let’s just say she had my full attention.



Brains? Check.



Beauty? Oh yeah.



And the best part? She hated me on sight. 



Dear God, do I love a challenge. 

Let the games begin.

I'm absolutely adoring Holly and Austin, and I'm also loving all of the snippets of friendship, the family moments between the Baileys, and the dynamics of their town, Lake Starlight!

[#SuperSexyGalentines] Week 1: Top 4 Sexiest Male Leads




Welcome to Week 1 of the #SuperSexyBookClub's #SuperSexyGalentines!

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, my #SuperSexyBookClub, made up of myself, Christine from Padfoot's Library, Eden from The Required Reading List, and Patty from Simply Patty are hosting a romance reading challenge for February!

This week we're sharing our Top 4 Sexiest Male Leads!

Thank you for checking out my post and joining Christine, Eden, Patty, and myself! I'm just going to dive right in!

My Top 4 Sexiest Male Leads are as follows!

 1. Vicious from L.J. Shen's VICIOUS and her Sinners of Saint Series!

I absolutely loved Vicious! I'm been smitten with him from the first time that I read VICIOUS (back in January 2017), and I still absolutely adore him! I've reread this book at least four times now, and I just grow to love him more and more! He's definitely an anti-hero and a darker character than I typically fall for, but for some reason I just adore his character. He's unforgettable, irresistible, and I absolutely adore seeing the way that he falls for his love interest, Emilia. It makes me swoon every single time!

------

2. Randy from Helena Hunting's PUCKED OVER and PUCKED UNDER from her Pucked Series!

Oh, Randy! I'd read the first book in the Pucked series ages ago, but hadn't read the rest of the series until this fall...and I got hooked! I flew through them all, but Randy and Lily were definitely my favourite couple...and Randy was by far my favourite character! I absolutely loved everything about him. He was funny, sooooo sweet, and undeniably sexy. I loved how he was described and I swooned pretty much whenever he and Lily were in the same vicinity.

------

 3. Will from Christina Lauren's BEAUTIFUL PLAYER and Beautiful Bastard Series!

Player Will! I pretty much fall hard and fast for all of Christina Lauren's guys, but from the moment I picked up Beautiful Player, Will has been my favourite! He's smart, sooooooo sexy...and I love, love, loved seeing his relationship with Hanna develop! I only let myself pick one Christina Lauren guy as a fave, so I had to sneak Finn (from DIRTY ROWDY THING) in this photo since he's my second fave. ;) Honestly I don't think they've written a male lead who I haven't found sexy yet though! ;D

------

4. Archer from Mia Sheridan's ARCHER'S VOICE!

My #SuperSexyBookClub read Archer's Voice as one of our January picks...and he was a HUGE hit! Patty has been a ginormous fan of Archer and Archer's Voice for a long time, so she was pretty happy that we all joined in on the Archer love! This book hit me right in the feels though, and I loved every single minute! Bree and Archer were so good together! I loved that Archer was so sweet and compassionate, but he was also strong, resilient, and so fierce! I loved reading about him, and I loved seeing his character grow....soooooooo good! I also loved how steamy this one was! I was kind of expecting it...but not! I also just had to include my Thor Funko (the Ragnarok version) in this photo because I thought Archer would appreciate it. ;)

Honourable Mentions:

๐Ÿ’–Jamie from Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series (TV or books—I’ll never not love JAMMF)
๐Ÿ’–Nick from Nicola Rendell’s SHIMMY BANG SPAKRLE
๐Ÿ’–Michael from Helen Hoang's THE KISS QUOTIENT
๐Ÿ’–Nate from Sarina Bowen's BROOKLYNAIRE

[#SuperSexyGalentines] Introduction!




Happy February fellow romance readers!

Last year, I started a brand new romance-centric book club with three of my best girlfriends: Christine from Padfoot's Library, Eden from The Required Reading List, and Patty from Simply Patty. We call it the #SuperSexyBookClub!

We've been speeding through two romances a month since we first brought our book club together, but for February we decided to do something a little different! We decided that we'd put together a challenge to share some of our favourite romances, our favourite characters, and our favourite tropes or genres...and we'd love for you to join us!

Here we go!
I'm super duper excited to introduce you to our #SuperSexyGalentines!
 
Our challenge is fairly simple, there are four of us, so every week we'll be sharing four of our favourites in a specific category!

What are our categories, you ask?

Well...you can find them listed on this handy graphic:


In case, you have any issues viewing the graphic, here's a text version:
  • Week 1: February 3 - 9th - Top 4 Sexiest Male Leads
  • Week 2: February 10 - 16th - Top 4 Fave Female Leads
  • Week 3: February 17 - 23rd - Top 4 Romantic Reads
  • Week 4: February 24 - 28th - Top 4 Fave Romance Tropes/Genres
As you can see we have four categories that we'll be focusing on, and we'll be sharing each during a certain week. The full challenge will run all through February. I plan to try to post on the first day of each week listed on the graphic, but that could change depending on my schedule. If you're joining in, feel free to post whenever you like. :)
