Eye Candy Friday: Davis Price from Arm Candy by Jessica Lemmon

Posted September 22, 2017 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

I’m really enjoying Jessica Lemmon’s Real Love series. The first book, Eye Candy, was good but not my favorite book of hers but then Arm Candy came out and yeah…that book was fun. I enjoyed the dynamic between Davis and Grace. I enjoyed their chemistry, their passion for each other and I really just enjoyed Davis’ character.

He was so confident and smart and I loved his sense of humor. That’s why he’s this week’s ECF man.

Arm Candy (Real Love #2) by Jessica Lemmon

Last call! At the end of the night, a clean-cut hunk and a rebellious bartender act on their unlikely chemistry in this frisky standalone novel from the author of Eye Candy.

Davis: I’ve had my eye on Grace Buchanan for a while now. Unlike the bubbly blondes I usually date, the feisty, flame-haired bartender both intrigues and bewilders me. Something about Grace—the tattoos? the nose ring?—makes every part of me sit up and beg. There’s only one problem: She hates me. Trading insults and one-liners has become our M.O. But when Grace bets me that I can’t get a date with a non-blonde if my life depends on it, I’m determined to prove her wrong by landing the ultimate non-blonde: her.

Grace: I’m used to regulars hitting on me, and I’ve turned them all down, except for one: Davis Price. I like giving him a hard time, and he’s kind of cute in his suit and tie—if you’re into that kind of thing. Anyway, I don’t care how many blondes he takes home . . . until one of them sidles up to him in my bar. Nuh-uh. But after my little bet with Davis backfires, our first date lands us in the sack. So does the second. And the third. Neither of us wants more than the best sex of our lives. The trouble is, it’s not a question of what I want. It’s what I need. And what I need is Davis.

If you haven’t tried this series out, I recommend that you do and see if it’s a series that would work for you.

Here’s what Davis Price looks like in my head. Isn’t he just yummy all over?

Week in Review (65)

Posted September 18, 2017 by Rowena in Features | 4 Comments

It’s amazing how relaxing my weeks have gotten with my kid not playing high school sports. Sure, she’s playing basketball at the community college but her schedule is nowhere near as hectic as her high school schedule was.

I spent the week catching up on the shows that I neglected because of Game of Thrones. I caught up on Shooter, Suits, and The Last Ship. I also watched a bunch of movies, too.

What I’m Currently Reading

Duke of My Heart (Season for Scandal #1) by Kelly Bowen

Scandal can be handled…

Captain Maximus Harcourt, the unconventional tenth Duke of Alderidge, can deal with tropical storms, raging seas, and the fiercest of pirates. But he’s returned home from his latest voyage to find a naked earl—quite inconveniently deceased—tied to his missing sister’s bed. And he has only one place to turn. Now he’s at the mercy of the captivating Miss Ivory Moore of Chegarre & Associates, known throughout London for smoothing over the most dire of scandals.

Miss Moore treats the crisis as though it were no more serious than a cup of spilt tea on an expensive rug. As though this sort of thing happened on the job every day. Max has never in all his life met a woman with such nerve. Her dark eyes are too wide, her mouth is too full, her cheekbones too sharp. Yet together, she’s somehow…flawless. It’s just like his love for her, imperfect, unexpected—yet absolutely true.

Every time that I went to pick this book up on my kindle, I ended up opening another book and re-reading that book instead of reading this one so I never started this one. For realsy this time, I’m starting this book tonight.

I’m in the mood for a good office romance, anyone know of anything that I try after I finish this book?

Eye Candy Friday: Henry Pembrooke from Royally Matched by Emma Chase

Posted September 15, 2017 by Rowena in Features | 1 Comment

This week’s ECF man is a guy that I completely adored. He was sweet and funny and he noticed a girl that would have otherwise gone unnoticed because she was shy and kept to herself. Henry Pembrook had a lot of growing up to do when we first met him in Royally Screwed. He did grow up though and I had fun watching him grow up and take on his role as the future King of Wessco.

Royally Matched (Royally #2) by Emma Chase

Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to help her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora agrees to give him “space”—but while the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world’s most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit… and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

If you haven’t read this series, you should fix that because it’s a good one. I promise. The Princes were hot as hell and the women they fell in love with were fabulous heroines.

Here’s what Prince Henry looks like in my head:

It’s pretty close to the dude on the cover, huh?
