Review for Friends With Benefits: A Steamy College Romance (Beta Brothers #2) by Hazel Kelly

Friends With Benefits: A Steamy College Romance
(Beta Brothers #2)
Hazel Kelly


We were only supposed to be friends with benefits. 

We even made rules. 

So things wouldn't get complicated. 

So no one would get hurt. 

But somewhere along the way, feelings got involved...

I should've known better, but he got me. Had me. 

Besides, I always was lousy at relationships. 

I just never cared before. 

Not until him, anyway. 

Not until Carter. 

This was an interesting read. Kind of flipped from the usual in some ways. Carter has been trying to get into Nina’s pants for a while. Now that isn’t the unusual part. He wants more from her and she’s the one shielding herself from him. She’s the one that instituted rules for their hooking up. That’s what I found to be different. For once it’s not the girl that’s falling all over the guy. It’s not the guy making all kinds of crazy rules. You can kind of tell from the beginning that it’s not going to work out well like that. It was a sweet read. There was a lot of sexual contact in the book, lots. But it was a good college romance.
4 out of 5 stars!

Review for The Duke's Scottish Lass by Tammy Andresen

The Duke's Scottish Lass
Tammy Andresen


Lady Delia Alban absolutely cannot marry the handsome rake, Roderick Maddox, fourth Duke of Manchester, despite her brother Stone’s insistence she do just that. Though he has long reformed his ways, he steals her breath away every time their eyes meet and she simply doesn’t deserve that kind of happiness. Not after the death of her brother, Reginald. She must pay penance, because, if not for her, he would still be alive. 

Roderick Maddox, has known for years he would marry Delia. Before Reginald’s death, he made a promise to his friend, not only would he care for Reginald’s sister, but he would reform himself into the type of man Delia deserved. He never expected Delia to ignite such passion or to be so resistant to him. Nor did he realize he held the secret about Reginald’s death that could crush their budding feelings forever.

It’s a match made in heaven, or more like one made by her brother. Delia’s brother wanted a match between she and Reginald’s best friend, Roderick. The very day they meet for the first time, a horrible tragedy happens. It’s one that the whole family has a hard time getting past. The eldest brother and Delia blame their selves for what happens and there is a kind of break down in communication between the two as well. Top it off with the fact that she doesn’t want to remember what happened that day and it makes for a difficult time for Roderick, whose bent on seeing this through and marrying her. But not just because Reginald wanted it. Turns out Delia’s brother knew what he was doing though. I thoroughly enjoyed reading their story and the struggles they faced. It was a very sweet read!
5 out of 5 stars!

Destination Wedding by Lily Ryan

Author: Lily Ryan

I’m heartbroken.
My narcissistic-womanizing-jackass of a boyfriend decides to break up with me five days before we’re supposed to leave for my best friend’s wedding in London. A destination wedding.
Single in London, I want to stay in my hotel room and cry. The bride has other plans for me. So does the sexy man I met while barely dressed in the hotel hallway.
The last thing I expect is to fall head over heels for him in a matter of days. Especially not while on display in the middle of London’s hottest sex club. With each simmering look and every tantalizing touch, Cam weaves his way deeper into my heart.
There’s so much about Cam I don’t know. Love isn’t found in a matter of days. But I can’t deny there’s something more than just the sizzling chemistry between us. Is it love, or lust on steroids?
