FAMED by Magan Vernon:
On the heels of Mary James leaked sex tape – totally a fake one to make her boyfriend jealous she might add- she needs some PR help if she ever wants her acting career to end up in a fiery hell like her love life.
Chris Garcia has been working his way up from mail room clerk to junior associate at Tate & Cane and now to get to the next rung of the corporate ladder he has to take on the firm’s toughest client: Mary James.
With a little help from a nosey Aunt Rosita and Mama Garcia, the two decide the best way to move forward is simple: a fake relationship.
But what happens when something fake gets to be too real and FAME gets involved?
One-Night Stand-In – T. Gephart
Sarah Madison loved working at Tate & Cane Enterprises.
While she looked and, for the most part, acted conservatively—she was a gladiator in the boardroom. The fast-paced, energetic work environment not only fed her need for corporate blood but also allowed her to work for one of her role models, Olivia Cane—living proof a woman really can have it all.
And after months of paying her dues, she was finally offered the promotion she’d been vying for. Which was great, except for the fact she had to share the position with a new guy they brought in especially for the role.
Kyle Drake was smart, experienced, and probably just as good, if not better, in negotiations. And if she wasn’t careful, prove he could do the job without her. Add in good-looking and an incredibly sexy smooth talker, and everyone in the office either wanted to be him or sleep with him. Which Sarah could have totally ignored if he hadn’t been the stranger she’d married in Vegas during a fake ceremony six months earlier.
He was supposed to be her one-night stand, a stand-in for a ceremony that wasn’t even legally binding. They were never even going to see each other again. Hell, she apparently hadn’t even known his real last name at the time. It was the only time she’d ever done something completely reckless and spontaneous.
It figured that one time would come back and bite her where it hurt.
THE RUN IN – KELLY ELLIOTT
Becoming the new Marketing Manager at Tate and Cane was a game changer. I was hell bent on proving I deserved this job, and that it wasn’t my cousin Sterling Quinn who had helped me score the new job title. Him being one of the CEO’s best friend—didn’t help the rumors.
Well screw that.
Ten years of sweat and hard work was the reason I was sitting in a large corner office with a killer Manhattan view. More focused than I’d ever been, it was time to take the bull by the horns.
And God help the person who stood in in my way.
Things I left behind in Seattle, Washington: A promising career at a top marking firm, the past I was desperate to escape, and obviously my sense of direction. It was because of all of those reasons I was standing in the middle of New York City lost and cursing at my phone.
If I didn’t get to Tate and Cane soon, I wouldn’t only be late, but also blow the chance to make the good impression on my new boss, Mason Quinn. And I needed that more than anything.
One wrong turn, an unfortunate collision, and an expensive suit drenched in my soy chia tea latte was not how I wanted to start my first day.
Then there was the other little problem I had. The drop dead gorgeous man whose suit I’d ruined was my new boss.
And boy did he look pissed.
TIED BY KIM KARR
I was rich, single, and connected, which meant a steady diet of beautiful women wherever I went.
I really did think I had the perfect life.
Until I went and married a supermodel I’d just met, and everything changed.
Of course there were choices. But the word annulment meant giving her up, and I never give up anything. Still, I was a bachelor at heart, and having a wife, well, I didn’t really know what to do with that.
After only forty-eight hours of marriage, I had already gone and screwed everything up.
Now I have thirty days to prove to my new wife that I’m husband material. There’s only one problem—I don’t even know what husband material means. However, I’m certain that won’t stop me from excelling at it.
My wife tells me it isn’t going to be easy. That I have numerous issues to overcome.
First, there’s my jealousy. It needs to be tamed. Did I flip over the fact that her latest picture was causing men around the world to do dirty things all over the covers she graced? Hell, yes. I couldn’t help myself though. When her photo went viral, my caveman instincts kicked in, and I demanded she quit her job and stay home—barefoot and pregnant in my kitchen. I can work on that, right?
Then there’s my mother. I need to convince her that my new wife is not the money hungry floozy she called her. Did my mother actually call her that? Yes. I can’t help it that my mother wants me to get rid of my new wife. The problem is what my mother wants, she always gets one way or another. Still, turning my mother’s opinion around can’t be that hard, can it?
There are many other issues, but according to my new wife, those are minor compared to the biggest one—she says I will never be able to accept being tied down.
Don’t worry—I got this one. I intend to prove to her in no uncertain terms that being tied up, down, or horizontal is just what this Upper East Sider needs.
Battle of the Sexes Adriana Locke
Carver Jones’ partner at Jones + Gallum had to step down for medical reasons. He’s absolutely devastated. He swears. Just ignore his cheeky grin, okay?
When word reaches his fancy corner office that Gallum is replacing himself with his daughter, Amity, Carver is ecstatic.
For real this time.
Jones squashes men in the business industry flat. A woman? Pfst. He’ll be completely in charge in no time, doing whatever he wants. He’s so ready for this.
But is he ready to fight the hardest fight of his life? No, not the one to maintain control of his company. The one to keep control of his heart.
The battle may begin in the boardroom, but the war will definitely be won in the bedroom. May the best sex win.
UNSUPERVISED by Cora Kenborn
A non-existent love life, unstable paycheck, and a six-year-old who’d rather hit boys than books sound more like a cry for help than a dating profile. On paper, it would seem like I need a life coach, but I’ve managed to get a decent grip on the single-dad thing. My love life, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. With my sexy Irish accent, I should have women of all ages losing their minds, but I seem to attract only a certain type—crazy.
The last thing I want is a new relationship, but I need a date for my company’s charity function. A chance meeting with a tall, leggy blonde who looks like she could use a night out is the perfect solution. Beautiful, sane, and she has a kid? We have a winner.
I didn’t count on Laken being unforgettable. Unlike all the other fake women I’ve met in this city, she’s real. And if there’s one thing I value more than anything, it’s honesty.
I didn’t bust my ass in college to be a nanny. Unfortunately, a 4.0 GPA and sucking up to the owner’s sister did nothing to secure a coveted Tate & Cane Enterprises internship. I’m not proud of being a nanny-for-hire to get my foot in the door, but my wealthy socialite employer has the ears of company executives. Swallowing my pride, I do what I need to—until an afternoon at the park changes everything.
I don’t mean to let him think Preston is my kid, but he just assumes. This isn’t me. I’m not a liar. Although his panty-melting accent does unspeakable things to me, I should set the record straight. There’s only one problem. Niall is a freelance photographer for Tate & Cane and invites me to a company event as his plus-one. He’s my “in.”
If I can hold on to this charade long enough, I can get the job and the man of my dreams. I’m winging this completely unsupervised. Game on.
TWISTED by Mandi Beck
Three friends walk into a bar . . . One walks out the fake girlfriend of a hot, bearded Scotsman.
Fannin McGuire is up for promotion at Tate and Cane Enterprises, but first she has to make it through her stepsister’s wedding. To Fannin’s ex. Yep. Her ex-fiancé is about to be her new brother-in-law. One big happy family. And lucky her, she also gets to work with him.
While Fannin is putting all of her energy into her career, her ex is putting all of his energy into making her life hell. Just when Fannin is sure she’ll be attending the wedding without a plus one, in walks Jasper James to save the day. He’s the bartender at the Iron Flask, the account she’s trying to land, and everything she didn’t know she needed or wanted. Before Fannin knows what’s happening, Jasper is playing knight in shining armor and she likes it. And him. A lot. With his smooth Scottish accent, ridiculously good looks, and that beard? She doesn’t stand a chance.
Jasper isn’t in the habit of rescuing anyone. But when Fannin is confronted by her ex about her lack of a date for his upcoming nuptials, Jasper can’t help but step in. Her wild hair, violet eyes, and killer legs have him doing a few things he normally wouldn’t. Never mind that he shouldn’t be getting involved with the woman in charge of making the bar a global success.
Their fake relationship becomes more real than either thought it would. Now they’re at the mercy of their feelings when truths are twisted, and the lies don’t taste as smooth as the whisky.
CHEEKY by Natasha Madison
Bradley Fitch has it all. A suave job, a gigantic trust fund, and an accent that makes panties drop faster than the speed of light. His new life in New York City is fast-paced and furious, but it’s nothing a little getaway can’t cure.
What says party and unwind like Las Vegas? Nothing. Plus, whatever happens there has to stay there.
When his best friend bails, he finds himself sitting on the plane next to his best friend’s sister.
She’s off-limits—proverbial caution tape wrapped around her body. Of course, she’s also totally ball busting gorgeous.
Lexi Quinn fell in love with Bradley at eight years old and then vowed to kill him at eight and a half. What was supposed to be a romantic week away is turning into a nightmare. Her ex is actually married, her luggage is lost, and her reservation is cancelled. And she’s sitting next to the man she swore to hate forever
One week. No strings attached. What is the worst that could happen?
It’s all fun and games till this British bad boy gives new meaning to BBC and becomes a little bit too cheeky.
I must admit I enjoy Kindle Worlds when I get the time and the opportunity to check them out . As allows us to visit a world created by one author and see another author using that same world to create their own story.
I’m a fan of Kendall Ryan ‘s writing and having read a few of these authors before. I jumped at the chance to read the first eight Imperfect Love World novellas.
Karr’s offering Tied was expansion of a previous short story that featured James and Lindsay. Secondary characters that have appeared in a number of her novels. Being familiar with those novels. I loved the crossover featuring some of my favourite Karr characters and Ryan. It gave a chance to see how James and Lindsay first met and experience the highs and the lows of their first few days as a married couple. I loved the concept of the story and how Karr really made a focus on this story for the couple to get to know each other first before really making any more decisions that they might of regret. It was sweet yet was sexy and fun . Everything that I have come to expect from Karr and a quick and fun novella
Famed is Vernon story and crossovers with her Friendship , Texas series and features one of her secondary characters from that series. Immediately I was drawn quickly to this story. As who doesn’t love a bit of scandal and poor Mary James is paying the price. So who better then a PR up and comer from Tate and Cane. Chris Garcia to help Mary get her acting career on track and out of scandal. However things aren’t that easy and simple to fix. So what better then a fake relationship that soon blurring the lines. Famed was adorable and sexy. I loved the concept as what better then a fake relationship. This book reminder why I love Vernon and her prose. This story was so fun to read and I love how she made this story worked.
Gephart ‘s One -Night Stand -In revolves around two people who had the typical Vegas experience and when their separate ways after. Sarah never thought about the night since. It was a wild moment faking marrying a guy she had no clue about. Well until Kyle Drake walks through the doors of Tate and Cane and is keen to revisit that night . Even though they are working together in the same position……
I’m never disappointed when I pick up one of Gephart’s books and I loved a brand characters. Whilst I missed some of the trademark humour that Gephart can only deliver. I enjoyed this story a lot. As she took a twist on the cliché Vegas wedding and one night stand and made it something new and exciting.
Cheeky gives us an alpha hero who isn’t afraid of having fun with his best friend’s sister in the perfect place in the world . Both of them were heading to Vegas for some fun but things haven’t gone to plan for both them. Bradley was planning for a boy ‘s week to escape his fast pace life. However he didn’t expect to get stood up and having to deal with Lexi, the said sister of the friend who stood up .
Lexi is having the worse day of her life and since finding out her boyfriend was married and has had a irate wife after her. She just wants to escape but things seems to get worse. Seeing Bradley is the icing on the cake to her problems. Until they both agree to one week of now strings attached. Cheeky is going to take a new meaning after that. As these two go at things like there no tomorrow and Maddison is more then happily to let her characters take the lead. Especially our British lead Bradley who lives up to all our British dreams.
Elliot is an author that I haven’t read much of but I adore the one book I owned signed by her. So I was looking forward to The Run In as it was a chance to read another book of her’s. It didn’t disappoint. Mason Quinn is the typical alpha male and the way we meet him lives up to that. Saylor Night literally runs into him and he is cock as hell. Best first worse impression Saylor could make on her new boss when she realises that who he is . Luckily for her things get better after that but there sure is some hiccups along the way.
Saylor knows her stuff and whilst giving the first worse impression is something she would of rather not done. She quickly hits the ground running to show Mason that she is perfect and is ready to match Mason . Throwing Mason for a spin. As long he can remember he has been driven to make his own success and not rest on the family laurels. He hasn’t had the time for long term relationships but Saylor makes him want to forget everything.
Prior to this I hadn’t read or knew much of Beck’s books. But I plan to change that in a heartbeat. As I was captured by this story and I loved every moment of this story. The heroine Fannin McGuire is part of Nate’s extended family but she not resting on the family money. She happily working for cousin Nate as marketer but things aren’t easy for with her ex finance also on the team. Who happens to be now engaged to her step sister.
So Fannin has let things go mostly but her ex is determined to wreck havoc on her career . And with the wedding coming up . She doesn’t know what to do until a sexy Scottish name Jasper comes into save the day. He far from the typical guy her family would be expecting and the only thing wrong he a bartender for the client. Minor thing right
Well this twisted story is about to get even more complicated as Jasper isn’t just a knight in shinning armour . He maybe attracted to Fannin and gone out of his way to help her. But feelings are starting to get involved and these two can’t help just get a little more twisted. Beck didn’t disappoint and honestly I wanted more by the end.
Battle of the Sexes take the age old battle in a fun contemporary romance. Carver Jones and Amity Gallum both grew up together as their fathers were partners in a business. Now grown up they have both gone their own ways to become successful in the business world. Carver took his father role in the partnership and has been waiting to Amity’s father to step down. It means he would have the control of the business .
Well nearly, as Amity’s father believes she is the best one for the role. ……
With the age old question in play, Locke gives a novella that explores that and more. With a history that these two had. It wasn’t going to be smooth sailing as both were determined to show the other up . Not just because of their sex but because of their history. Amity didn’t have the best relationship with Carver prior. So it was interesting seeing Amitty being forced to address things and whilst I didn’t love the ending.
Unsupervised was from another new to me author , Keaborn and she didn’t disappoint. Niall is a single dad trying to raise his daughter to the best of his ability. However being successful has his downfalls as there is one woman in his life he can’t seem to shake and she determined to cause havoc.
So when he tells her that he has a fiancée. It seems a quick solution but a scorn women isn’t going to let things him get out of her grasp so easily. So Niall got to find a fiancée fast. And when he finds the perfect fake fiancée in Laken who wants a into a hook up so she can get an internship with his work. She seems perfect and would get any one out of his hair. However Laken is willing as much to lie as Niall and play this charade a little to hard. Leading to some uh oh moments
Unsupervised is anyone worse night mare gone wrong. Laken was so desperate that she was willing to do anything on own her and the results was hilarious. Keaborn really had fun with this novella and I enjoyed this tale.
