Filthy Lawyer & The Firm by Whitney G.



From Whitney G's Newsletter:

This series of standalone novels combines all of the things I love about Reasonable Doubt: witty banter, dirty talk, an alpha male in a suit who meets his match in a strong heroine, and of course, hot and steamy sex that fogs the e-reader screen. 

'The Firm' in question is "Hamilton & Associates" and it is helmed by the one and only Andrew Hamilton who serves a very important role in all three of these novels.

(You do *not* have to read Reasonable Doubt to enjoy this series, but if you're interested in reading one of the best alpha males I've ever created, it's currently available on all platforms!)

Late Night Kisses by Whitney G.


The Official Recipe for Nathan Benson: 

2 cups cockiness 
1 mouth that's far sexier when it's shut
1 huge ego that can't fit in the damn mixer 
1 BIG, HARD co—Well, you get the picture…

As a pastry chef, I can tell exactly what a man is made of the moment he walks through my shop’s frosted glass doors.

So, the moment Nathan Benson showed up over half an hour late to our blind date (with no explanation), caught the gaze of every woman in the diner with his panty-melting smile, and said, "I personally don't think we should waste any more of our time sitting here talking," after only five minutes of conversation, I knew he was one of the rudest concoctions ever created. 
I also knew there was no way in hell I was going to see him again.

Or, so I thought.

Days after I abandoned him on our first date, he tracked me down with one hell of a way to get me to agree to a second one. (And a third, and a fourth.) I swear if it weren't for the fact that I was being blackmailed by the sexiest man I've ever met, I would've reported him to the authorities a long time ago. 

Then again, holding out for a few late night kisses (and maybe a bit more) from his mouth of perfection may not be a complete recipe for disaster after all... 

**This is a steamy, contemporary romance novella.**

Regretting You by Colleen Hoover


Title: Regretting You
Author: Colleen Hoover
Release Date: December 10, 2019
Publisher: Montlake


Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.

Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in her body.

With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.

While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.





Despite knowing I just pissed my mother off by being half an hour late for curfew, I still can’t stop smiling. That kiss with Miller was worth it. I bring my fingers to my lips. 

I’ve never been kissed like that. The guys I’ve kissed in the past all seemed like they were in a hurry, wanting to shove their tongue in my mouth before I changed my mind. 

Miller was the opposite. He was so patient, yet in a chaotic way. It was like he’d thought about kissing me so often that he wanted to savor every second of it. 

I don’t know that I’ll ever not smile when I think about that kiss. It kind of makes me nervous for school tomorrow. I’m not sure where that kiss leaves us, but it felt like it was a statement. I just don’t know what exactly that statement was. 

My phone buzzes in my back pocket. I roll over and pull it out, then fall onto my back again. It’s a text from Miller. 

Miller: I don’t know about you, but sometimes when something significant happens, I get home and think of all the things I wish had gone differently. All the things I wish I would have said. 

Me: Is that happening now? 

Miller: Yes. I don’t feel like I was entirely forthcoming with you. 

I roll onto my stomach, hoping to ease the nausea that just passed through me. It was going so well… 

Me: What weren’t you honest about? 

Miller: I was honest. Just not entirely forthcoming, if there’s a difference. I left a lot out of our conversation that I want you to know. 

Me: Like what? 

Miller: Like why I’ve liked you for as long as I have. 

I wait for him to elaborate, but he doesn’t. I’m staring at my phone with so much intensity that I almost throw it when it rings unexpectedly. It’s Miller’s phone number. I hesitate before answering it, because I rarely ever talk on the phone. I much prefer texting. But he knows I have my phone in my hand, so I can’t very well send it to voice mail. I swipe my finger across the screen and then roll off the bed and head to my bathroom for more privacy. I sit on the edge of the tub. 

“Hello?” 

“Hey,” he says. 

“Sorry. It’s too much to text.” 

“You’re kind of freaking me out with all the innuendos.” 

“Oh. No, it’s all good. Don’t be nervous. I just should have said this to you in person.” Miller inhales a deep breath, and then on the exhale, he starts talking. “When I was fifteen, I watched you in a school play. You had the lead role, and at one point, you performed a monologue that went on for like two whole minutes. You were so convincing and you looked so heartbroken I was ready to walk onto the stage and hug you. When the play was finally over and the actors came back out onto the stage, you were smiling and laughing, and there wasn’t a trace of that character left in you. I was in awe, Clara. You have this charisma about you that I don’t think you’re aware of, but it’s captivating. I was a scrawny kid as a sophomore, and even though I’m a year older than you, I hadn’t quite filled out yet, and I had acne and felt inferior to you, so I never worked up the courage to approach you. Another year went by, and I continued to admire you from afar. Like that time you ran for school treasurer and tripped walking off the stage, but you jumped up and did this weird little kick and threw your arms up in the air and made the entire audience laugh. Or that time Mark Avery popped your bra strap in the hallway, and you were so sick of him doing it that you followed him to his classroom, reached inside your hoodie, and took off your bra and then threw it at him. I remember you yelling something like, ‘If you want to touch a bra so damn bad, just keep it, you perv!’ Then you stormed out. It was epic. Everything you do is epic, Clara. Which is why I never had the courage to approach you, because an epic girl needs an equally epic guy, and I guess I’ve just never felt epic enough for you. I’ve said epic so many times in the last fifteen seconds—I’m so sorry.” 

He’s out of breath when he finally stops talking.

I’m smiling so hard my cheeks ache. I had no idea he felt this way. No idea. 

I wait a few seconds to make sure he’s done; then I finally respond. I’m pretty sure he can hear from my voice alone that I’m smiling. “First of all, it’s hard to believe you were ever insecure. And second, I think you’re pretty epic, too, Miller. Always have. Even when you were scrawny and had acne.” 

He laughs a little. “Yeah?” 

“Yeah.” 

I can hear him sigh. “Glad I got that off my chest, then. See you at school tomorrow?” 

“Good night.” 

We end the call, and I don’t know how long I sit and stare at my phone.


Regretting You is the story of Morgan and Clara and is told in a dual POV.   It's a story that will show you love and loss and overcoming it. I usually enjoy Colleen's books but this one just didn't connect with me. I wanted to love it, I really did, but I just couldn't connect with these characters. I felt more annoyed than connected. Colleen's writing was good, and the story flowed, but there were just things that made me not love this book. I know I'm going to the minority on this. Even though I didn't love this book, that won't stop me from reading whatever comes next because Colleen is fantastic at putting out books that are all very different from each other.

Inappropriate by Vi Keeland

Inappropriate
Release date January 20th, 2020 
A Standalone Contemporary Romance 
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland


BLURB
Terminated for inappropriate behavior.
I couldn’t believe the letter in my hands.
Nine years. Nine damn years I’d worked my butt off for one of the largest companies in America, and I was fired with a form letter when I returned home from a week in Aruba.
All because of a video taken when I was on vacation with my friends—a private video made on my private time. Or so I thought…
Pissed off, I cracked open a bottle of wine and wrote my own letter to the gazillionaire CEO telling him what I thought of his company and its practices.
I didn’t think he’d actually respond.
I certainly never thought I’d suddenly become pen pals with the rich jerk.
Eventually, he realized I’d been wronged and made sure I got my job back.
Only…it wasn’t the only thing Grant Lexington wanted to do for me.
But there was no way I was getting involved with my boss’s boss’s boss. Even if he was ridiculously gorgeous, confident, and charming.
It would be completely wrong, inappropriate even.
Sort of like the video that got me into trouble to begin with.
Two wrongs don’t make a right.
But sometimes it’s twice as fun.

The Fall of Legend by Meghan March







From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a new
deliciously dangerous alpha hero in The Fall of Legend, the first book
in the brand new and utterly addictive Legend trilogy.


We come from two different worlds.
I’m from the streets. She might as well live in an ivory tower.
I made my living with my fists. I doubt she could even throw a punch.
Our paths never should have crossed.
We never should have met. 
That doesn’t change the facts.
I would sell my soul to taste those red lips.
Fight the devil himself to hear her laugh.
Burn in hell to have a single night.
Scarlett Priest shouldn’t even know men like me exist, but sometimes temptation is stronger than will. 
If this is how I go down, it’ll be worth every second of the fall.

The Fall of Legend is the first book in the newest trilogy by Meghan March. We were first introduced to Gabriel Legend at the end of White Knight. I couldn't wait to dive into this book. It sounded gritty and raw and I couldn't get enough of the blurb. Then I started reading it. That is where this becomes painful for me. I'm obsessed with Meghan's writing and devour anything she releases.

This book started out great, it was fast paced then it slowed. At times it seems to drag. Meghan did a great job of giving us the backgrounds and history of both Gabriel and Scarlett. We got to know each character while also leaving us breadcrumbs that she is so well known for. I know that there is so much more to come and I will absolutely be finishing this series because I need answers for so many questions. Meghan is the queen of twists and turns and just when you think you've got it figured out she throws you a curve ball. I hope the next two books in this series are full of them because I always enjoy that ride.







Making the jump from corporate lawyer to romance author was a leap of faith that New York Times,
#1 Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Meghan March will never regret.
With over thirty titles published, she has sold millions of books in nearly a dozen languages
to fellow romance-lovers around the world. A nomad at heart, she can currently be found
in the woods of the Pacific Northwest, living her happily ever after with her real-life alpha hero.
