Manwhore. That’s what the board of directors—and the tabloids—thinks of billionaire bachelor Reese Crane. Ordinarily he couldn’t care less, but his playboy past is preventing the board from naming him CEO of Crane Hotels. Nothing—and no one—will keep him from his life’s legacy. They want a settled man to lead the company? Then that’s exactly what he’ll give them.

Merina Van Heusen will do anything to get her parents’ funky boutique hotel back—even marry cold-as-ice-but-sexy-as-hell Reese Crane. It’s a simple business contract—six months of marriage, absolute secrecy, and the Van Heusen is all hers again. But when sparks fly between them, their passion quickly moves from the boardroom to the bedroom. And soon Merina is living her worst nightmare: falling in love with her husband…

St. Martin’s Paperbacks

Blurb

A river divides Cottonbloom in two: the upscale enclave on the Mississippi side and the rundown, rough and tumble side in Louisiana. They’re worlds apart—but nothing can build a bridge like love…

Cade Fournette never had it easy Cottonbloom. He stuck around long enough to raise his orphaned siblings and then hightailed it out West—and never looked back. Even though he’s made a success of himself in Seattle, Cade never lost the toughness and the angry edge that helped him survive down South. His only weak spot: the girl he left behind…

Monroe Kirby came from the wealthy side of town, but that didn’t protect her from her mother’s drinking—or her mother’s boyfriend. It was Cade who did that, on a long-ago hot September night, before he disappeared…along with a piece of her heart. Now Monroe is a physical therapist who can fight for herself, and it’s Cade who could use some conditioning when he makes an unexpected return back home. Will he and Monroe pick up where they left off and finally explore their mutual passion—or will the scars and secrets of the past divide them once more?

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare reviewed by Mia

Lady Midnight by Cassandra ClareTitle: Lady Midnight
Series: The Dark Artifices #1
Author: Cassandra Clare
Pages: 668
Release date: March 8, 2016
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Source: Personal Copy

Summary
It’s been five years since the events of City of Heavenly Fire that brought the Shadowhunters to the brink of oblivion. Emma Carstairs is no longer a child in mourning, but a young woman bent on discovering what killed her parents and avenging her losses.

Together with her parabatai Julian Blackthorn, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches across Los Angeles, from the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. If only her heart didn’t lead her in treacherous directions…

Making things even more complicated, Julian’s brother Mark—who was captured by the faeries five years ago—has been returned as a bargaining chip. The faeries are desperate to find out who is murdering their kind—and they need the Shadowhunters’ help to do it. But time works differently in faerie, so Mark has barely aged and doesn’t recognize his family. Can he ever truly return to them? Will the faeries really allow it?

IMPORTANT!
If you haven’t read The Infernal Devices or The Mortal Instruments or The Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy this book will contain a lot of spoilers!

Storyline

This new series was whole different then the others! Clare has improved as a writer and she used all our prejudices and experience that we had to turn it against us. The book has so many plot twists that you were never able to guess what will come next. It has amazing fight scenes, tons of emotions and it was full with secrets and hidden clues.

This first book already answered some pretty important questions that we thought, based on our past experience, which we would need to wait more. (Ex.: Why can parabatais fall in love? Who killed Emma’s parents? Etc.)

The whole plot was like an emotional roller coaster spiced up with the parabatai relationship in the middle that ripped our heart out at least five times during these 600 pages. But it was worth it!

Characters

In the City of Heavenly Fire, we already got to see young Emma and Jules, but in this book they are more grown up. They are both amazing characters! Julian Blackthorn is like mixing together all the good things in Will, Jam and Jace to get the perfect boy. He is gentle, sweet and artistic, but at the same time, has his own dark side and secrets. With him we never know what he said is true or not. Emma is a little bit like Jace, but in a girl. She is living for revenge, and that is her one job. Their relationship is different, since they know each other for a long time and they both grow up in that world. In the past books there was always someone new therefore their relationship is much more deeper.


Fanart by Mia

All the Blackthorns are so sweet, and Cassie found an amazing way to introduce them all, and make us remember them, so you don’t have to worry, you will be able to remember all seven of them. It was really good and sometimes sad to see Jules as the oldest and acting as a parent, but it is a main feature of his character so it suits him. And there is of course Mark, who returns from his captivity and he had a really significant part in this book.

We had a few new characters, Cristina who came from the Mexico City Institute, and she is pretty amazing. She follows the rules, while has something that she was running from and she really fits into the Los Angeles Institute. There was also Diana the tutor of the Blackthrons and of course a Shadowhunter book is not a Shadowhunter book without a warlock Malcolm, who little bit reminds us to Magnus, but he is not Magnus.

Of course some of the old characters appear here, and it’s nice to see what happened with Jace, Alec, Clary, Izzy, Simon and Magnus, but their appearance is not overshadowing the new story so it is just like a good nostalgia.

Overall

If you are a Shadowhunters fan I highly recommend this book, because it was the best one so far! The only downside is that now we need to wait one more year till the next one!

Blog Tour & Review: Good Girl by Lauren Lane

Good Girl by Lauren LayneGood Girl

Releasing May 17, 2016
Loveswept

Blurb

In this steamy novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Blurred Lines, country music’s favorite good girl hides away from the world—and finds herself bunking with a guy who makes her want to be a little bad.

Jenny Dawson moved to Nashville to write music, not get famous. But when her latest record goes double platinum, Jenny’s suddenly one of the town’s biggest stars—and the center of a tabloid scandal connecting her with a pop star she’s barely even met. With paparazzi tracking her every move, Jenny flees to a remote mansion in Louisiana to write her next album. The only hiccup is the unexpected presence of a brooding young caretaker named Noah, whose foul mouth and snap judgments lead to constant bickering—and serious heat.

Noah really should tell Jenny that he’s Preston Noah Maxwell Walcott, the owner of the estate where the feisty country singer has made her spoiled self at home. But the charade gives Noah a much-needed break from his own troubles, and before long, their verbal sparring is indistinguishable from foreplay. But as sizzling nights give way to quiet pillow talk, Noah begins to realize that Jenny’s almost as complicated as he is. To fit into each other’s lives, they’ll need the courage to face their problems together—before the outside world catches up to them.

When rescue looks like a whole lot of trouble…

The road trip was definitely a bad idea. Having already flambéed her culinary career beyond recognition, Rita Clarkson is now stranded in God-Knows-Where, New Mexico, with a busted-ass car and her three temperamental siblings, who she hasn’t seen in years. When rescue shows up—six-feet-plus of hot, charming sex on a motorcycle—Rita’s pretty certain she’s gone from the frying pan right into the fire…

Jasper Ellis has a bad boy reputation in this town, and he loathes it. The moment he sees Rita, though, Jasper knows he’s about to be sorely tempted. There’s something real between them. Something raw. And Jasper has only a few days to show Rita that he isn’t just for tonight—he’s forever.

Blurb

He says she’s a nuisance. She thinks he’s a jerk. Together they might be the perfect match.

Riordan Faraday is about to reach his breaking point. He’s got art classes to teach, a needy mum to care for, and most importantly, a painting to finish. But without time or inspiration, he hasn’t been able to paint a thing and it’s driving him mad. So when a silly American girl shows up on his doorstep with a wild proposal, he shoots her down perhaps a bit more harshly than she deserves…but it’s for the best. He can’t afford any more distractions at the moment, especially not beautiful brown-eyed ones.

Samantha Meyer—Sam, to her friends—is on a mission to find her late grandmother’s necklace. The long-lost piece of jewelry is the only thing she has left of Gram and Sam is determined to see that dream fulfilled before she returns home to New Jersey and takes up the reins of the family business. But she wasn’t counting on a sexy, surly painter to stand in her way.
