Review: Taming My Prince Charming (Finding My Prince Charming #2) by J.S. Cooper

Taming My Prince Charming (Finding My Prince Charming #2) by J.S. Cooper

When Lola met Xavier, Prince of Romerius, she was immediately attracted to his dark, handsome good looks and sparkling green eyes. She spent a whirlwind weekend with him and almost fell for his charm, until he humiliated her and she fled.

Lola wasn't prepared to find out that Xavier was her new professor and her new boss. She also wasn't prepared for the sparks that flew every time they were together. When Xavier takes her on a work trip, she is shocked when they are mobbed by the paparazzi and agrees to go to Romerius with Xavier to pretend she is his fiancé.

Only Lola had no idea that Xavier had a master plan from the moment he met her. He wanted a week to make her his, so that he could get her out of his system. Only Xavier had no idea that fate had another plan for him.

My thoughts (Roxana):

You already know how much I love J.S.Cooper's books by now, but I was a little dissapointed with this new installment in the Finding My Prince Charming. Don't get me wrong, I'll still read the next one and after the cliffhanger ending of this book, I can't wait for it!

But one of the reason was that I wished to find out more about the Prince Kingdoom.. I mean, think about it... if you were wisked away in a contry of your boyfriend, wouldn't you want to find out more about it, about her traditions, about his relation with his citizens, or about the politics? I'm not a person who loves political debates, seriously I'm not, guys!

But... yes, I would love it even if we find out more about his family relation with their citizens, or about his family...but, the good part is the fact that we focus more on his relationship with Lola...

Even if it's not really a relationship because our favorite Prince is very stuborn and still insist that he can have his way with her for a while to get her out of his system. Ha! If that's even possible with their attraction... but he's trying...

Lola doesn't know about his agenda so she's really excited to be with him in his country, in his home...
As we get to know his family, we find out nothing is as it seems, even more than that some members of his family have their own dark secrets....

It's still all about sex and denial, still hot and cold, because Xavier wants to protect her from himself and his dark needs while Lola just wants him!
We find out out how dark are his needs when he takes her to this club, where a world of passion and hot sex are revealed to Lola, but we also see Xavier approach about his feeling and his needs, because he sure wouldn't put them both words in the same sentence!

Another reason for my dissapointment was Lola... I expected her several times during this book to make her baggage and go back to Londra... I mean... I love Xavier though tick and thin, but he's still such a jerk, so some of his antics would not have been  valued by old Lola, even more she would have so kicked him in the shins while letting him have a piece of her mind...

But... she';s falling for him and her feelings have changed her somewhat, so I kind of understand why she had this submissive vibe with him. He also changed a little, but like a I said it's hard to face everything when your world is turned upside down by your student...

Final Decision: Sometimes you're faced with  decisions hard to make. Some of us take the easy way and give everything they have, consequences be damned. Others run from them and hide behind mask of indifference. But how do you know that you've made the good choice?
You don't. You'll just have to face them sooner or later, even if you don't like it.

My Rating: 4/5

Finding My Prince Charming (Finding My Prince Charming #1) by J.S. Cooper

Finding My Prince Charming (Finding My Prince Charming #1) by J.S. Cooper

Can a Playboy Prince ever be tamed?
When Lola Franklin decided to study abroad she never anticipated embarking on a whirlwind weekend romance with a hot guy before classes started.
And she certainly never counted on the hot guy being her new professor. Or a Prince. Or the biggest asshole she had ever met.
Xavier Van Romerius is the playboy Prince of Europe and he loves his life. He doesn’t do relationships, and never wants to get married. But when he see’s Lola Franklin flirting with his little brother Casper, he realizes that maybe he needs to rethink his ideas about love before the wrong Prince gets the girl.

My thoughts (Roxana):

Like in Rhett's case the prince charming is anything but... charming, but here comes the good side his a royal one, and I'm not speaking figuratively. Let's start with the beginning, shall we?

Lola Franklin is student from abroad who just wants to study and lead a normal life with friends and maybe even find her Prince Charming, even though she doesn't believe in true love. Yes, she's a walking contradiction. But she's also one sassy, tough cookie who doesn't let people walk over her that's way she's crossing swords with Xavier Van Romerius, a guy she can't stand, but she can't help to find herself drawn to him. So this is the moment when a tango between those two begin...

But not all is milk and honey, because like I already said Xavier is a jerk used getting what he wants ad to treat women even worse than Rhett if that's possible. Neither Lola is an inocent flower. Oh no, she gives him Hell every time they met and it's often, because Xavier is not only a Crown Prince, he's also her professor. Yep... you heard me right... he's her professor so that's bound to bring them problems if their affairs come to light. But fortunately for Lola it was just a one-night stand, right?

She finds against their atraction, but it's hard to do it, no pun intended, when Xavier is so decided to get in her pants! And his one a hot, amazing, funny jerk- seriously it was so funny watching him how he thought that he's the master of this world. 

But underneath of all his bad layers, there is a soul who would love to protect, care, possess with every fiber of his being for Lola, but he can't let that side come out because he's the Prince of Romerius, and a prince doesn't submit to any woman. Yes, he has to get a lection about how to treat a woman...

I'll admit I wasn't been his number one fan but I also loved him because he's that kind of character to inspire a love-hate emotion in readers. I know that some people really hated him, but I was charmed with this arrogant, conceited and funny jerk, so I think you should give him  a chance to prove himself.

But, please keep in mind that this story is a short one, so don't expect the drama going lengths and lengths with it, so is really short, sweet, somewhat with angs and sexy with two heroes who goes from strangers having a one-night stand to souls trying to find each other as soulmates...

Final Decision: Even though this is short, almost like a novella, it's full of feelings and romance. Some romantic stories starts with a simply look. Others start during a friendsip. But some starts with in inapropiate one-night stand that evolves in so much more, even if the couple is not ready to be swept of their feet, that's when troubles begin and sometimes you just got to let it go.

My Rating: 4,5/5

Review: Rhett (Rhett #1) by J.S. Cooper

Rhett (Rhett #1) by J.S. Cooper 

I’m Rhett.
I’m cocky because I can be. I’ve got it all: the looks, the money, the endurance. I’m the guy that every girl wants to be with, yet none of them have ever been able to tie me down.
I don’t do love. I don’t do relationships. And I sure as hell will never do marriage.
I’m all about the fast life and everything that entails. There’s a different woman in my bed every week. My friends are jealous of me. My enemies envy me. Everyone wants my life. And everything in my life is absolutely perfect.

Until the day she told me she was moving away. She’s my best friend. She was my first kiss in grade school. We share everything with each other. We never dated because I don’t love her. I don’t care that she’s moving. I don’t care that she’s moving for a guy. I don’t care because I don’t love her. I don’t do love.

I’m Rhett and I don’t let anything get me down. Then one night changed everything and everything I thought I knew was called into question.
All of a sudden, being Rhett didn’t mean so much anymore.

My thoughts (Roxana): 

Rhett is jerk. Plain and simple, but fortunately for him I love jerks, and Clemmie loves them too, or more exactly... she loves Rhett, but their story is not a fairytale and it's not simple. Rhett and Clemmie have been best friends since childhood, and even though she has been there for him, even though he was not the gentleman tipe. Oh, he has his moments when you'll fall in love with him, but in the start of this story he's conceited, infuriating and really imature. You just want to shake him, maibe even throw something at him or at least tell him some special words that my mother should not find out ever. Seriously, he thinks he's God's gift to woman kind and he treats them poorly in his misogynistics ways, and even more disturbing is the fact women loves him the way he is, without knowing his real person...

I''l be the first one to admit that he's frankly with them: "I'm not made for love." 

But still it's disturbing to know that some women like this exists out there. I'm not a feminist or anything like that but I would'n let him treat me that way. Neither would Clemmie, that's way she's made up her mind to see the world, to find out how are other guys aka dating because she doesn't want to die as a virgin. That's the moment when everything changes. When Rhett starts to realize that he's losing his best friend, he starts to see her in a new light. But thats not surprising since those two have deeper connection than most people have...

Even though Rhett is determined to make Clemmie his, that's not easy to obtain despite their connection, because Rhett hasn't been what you would call the boy next door, he hasn't been even your regular Joe... more so he doesn't know how to be a normal person and in his journey towards maturity, he makes mistakes and keeps secrets, more like just a big secret but one that could ruinate his chances wich Clemmie forever...

What could I say about Clemmie, besides that she's our hero's love interest, well she's a sweet girl, that accepts Rhett the way he is, even her family makes him a part of them. But Clemmie can't let Rhett be the center of her life, besides she wants to discover the world, to make a difference with her life and the first step is dating. But then she's swept away by Rhett and his charm. 

What I really liked about her is the fact that she remains a tough girl and will give him hell before accepting as a lover...

The story is said from Rhett's perspective, but don't fret guys, because he's not going to go easy on him so we will still judge and condemn him for his terrible ways, but also for his sweet and protective side toward Clemmie. 

Final Decision: It's a story about learning to change. Some people just want to change their world and explore it throughly. Other people want to change their friends status. And there are other people who want to change themselves in order to become someone worthy of loving. That's the most difficile change because to become a good person we will make mistakes along the way.

Rating: 5/5

Release Day Launch: Priceless by Raine Miller

Ivan Everley, 13th Baron Rothvale, would admit he's the last person on earth who should have custody over a priceless collection of art. British law affords him the title of 'Lord,' but underneath all the trappings he's just a regular guy, despite being a world champion in archery, and certain...proclivities of a private nature. But Ivan's public celebrity is merely a sham--a carefully guarded secret borne out of the pain of betrayal. Even his cousin Ethan Blackstone doesn't know the truth behind the man he considers a brother. 

Lord Rothvale has a plethora of problems piled up to his aristocratic eyeballs, but that doesn't stop him from complicating his world further when a beautiful art conservationist shows up to appraise his inherited collection of paintings. Once Ivan gets a taste of Gabrielle Hargreave, mistaken identity or not, he can't think of anything but how good the green-eyed beauty felt in his arms. 

The chase is on, and Ivan's dominant side isn't taking 'no' for an answer--but yet, Gabrielle might just teach our discontented lord a thing or two about life, and about himself, and help them both discover the undeniable truth in what it means to find something genuinely... priceless.

Book Blitz: Unbalanced by Charity Parkenson

Unbalance Banner
Title: UNBALANCED (No Rival, #3)
Author: Charity Parkerson
Release Date: July 30, 2014
Genre: Romantica® contemporary romance from Ellora’s Cave
Using unmatched skill and intelligence, Kurt captures the attention of every partner he desires. His ability to confuse his prey keeps them captivated. This trick has never failed him. That is, until he meets McKenna. As an author, McKenna has gone to great lengths to ensure the details of her erotic books are airtight. When Kurt challenges one of her scenes, she doesn’t hesitate to take up his offer to prove his theory. The bad boy MMA fighter appeals to her on every level. Kurt’s intelligence stimulates her mind even as his touch sets her body on fire. In spite of those things, McKenna has no intention of adding her name to his list of ex-lovers. McKenna’s odd behavior exasperates Kurt. She is an addiction he cannot shake. But somehow the two of them make the combination of his OCD logic and her unbalanced nature work. Inside Scoop: There are a couple hot but brief male/male encounters as well as a handcuff scene that may have you reaching for the fan.
She wasn’t wearing shoes. Funnily enough, it was the first detail about her that caught his eye. At a table, in public, Kurt found her shoeless state odd. There were a thousand tiny things about her he should have noticed first. Without a doubt, her plain black t-shirt, yoga pants and the overall lack of effort toward her appearance allowed her to blend into the background. It shouldn’t have mattered. Kurt wasn’t usually so blind. None of those points stole an ounce of power from her beauty. There wasn’t a hint of makeup marring her face. Blonde curls piled on her head held in place by some sort of clip. Something about her eyes held him captivated. They were unfocused as they moved across the pages of the book she held between her hands. In spite of that, he felt sure she absorbed every word, only on a different plane than others would. He moved closer. The lack of footwear became an obsession. Curiosity ate at him. He needed to know why. The coffee shop located inside a G. Richards’ Bookstore had a sign posted clearly on the front door. “No shoes. No service.” Once Kurt managed to snag the chair directly across from her, he bent at the waist. Under the guise of dropping a napkin, he peered under the edge of her table. Suspicions confirmed. His brows drew together in a frown as he sat up. After a moment of staring at the corner, he couldn’t stand it any longer. “Your feet are bare.” Lifting her gaze from the book between her hands, she blinked several times. He could practically see her dragging her mind away from whatever cloud it was on. “What?” “Your feet,” he repeated. “They have no shoes on them.” “Oh. I’d forgotten.” She immediately dismissed him by returning to her reading. “You’re inside a business. They serve food.” She didn’t bother glancing his way as she responded. “If that bothers you, I won’t mention the state of my underwear.” He had to know. “Did you forget those, as well?” That got her attention. A line formed between her eyes as if his question was too stupid for her to fathom. “How does someone forget their underwear?” “How does a person forget their shoes?” He shot back. Tilting her head to one side, she seemed to think it over for a moment before responding. “Is this a trick question?” Kurt scoffed as he reminded her of the obvious. “You’re not wearing them.” Her mouth turned up in one corner in such a way his gaze immediately shot to her lips. “I’m aware.” Unable to keep the exasperation from his voice, Kurt sighed. “You said you’d forgotten your shoes. It stands to reason then, you would know how one goes about it.” Setting her book aside, she nodded slowly as if giving his theory due consideration. “Your logic is sound,” she admitted after a moment. Finally, they were getting somewhere. She immediately ruined it by adding, “Except, I said no such thing. Therefore, I cannot help you.” There was a moment where he had nothing. He couldn’t recall a single incident where anyone had caused his mind to go blank. His brain was always on the move, slightly dissatisfied with his lot. She’d wiped him clean. Her blue eyes focused on him fully as if awaiting his next move. When he wasn’t quick enough, she released a heavy sigh. “If you must know, when I got here I realized I had on two different colored shoes so I took them off.” Without waiting to see his reaction, she flipped her book up between them, shutting him out. A part of him wanted to laugh at her confession. He was too fascinated. Not to mention, with his curiosity assuaged he really wanted to hear more about the rest. “What about your underwear?” She ignored him. He bit back a smile. His mind whirled back to life and he searched for a new way to insert himself into her company. Tilting his head, he read the title blocking her eyes from his gaze. The Ins and Outs of BDSM. Catchy title. Switching his gaze to the other items scattered across her table, he took note of another book on bondage as well as some handwritten notes. As far as he could tell by what she’d scratched out, she was either intent on rocking some dude’s world or plotting one hell of a murder. He braced his elbows on the table, lowering his voice where only she could hear. “I have handcuffs back at my place.” She set the book aside. Mimicking his pose, her eyes shone with mirth as she pitched her voice low, as well. “I have a Taser in my handbag.” Holding back his laughter, Kurt didn’t miss a beat. “Kinky,” he said, adding a wink. “I like it.” Snorting, she slapped her hand over her mouth and nose as if she couldn’t believe what she’d done. “I’m Kurt,” he offered before she could escape into her mind again. “McKenna.”

“Why didn’t you tell me you were from here?” he asked, holding his hands out in question. She furrowed her brow. “What?" “I had no idea you were Travis’s sister,” he said, and he sounded pissed. “And I had no idea you were a fireman,” she said, parking her hands on her hips. He shoved a hand roughly through his hair, shook his head. “And I had no idea you were the photographer. You said you were an artist.” “I am!” she said, her voice rising. What the hell? “I can draw, and I do tattoos. I also happen to be good at shooting pictures. Besides, you said you were a bar owner,” she pointed out, as if they could both redo this colossal mistake by rehashing the moments they both could have been more honest. “Why didn’t you tell me more about yourself?” she countered. He didn’t answer. He moved closer, maybe a foot away now. The anger felt like a pulsating life force, but there was something else between them, too. Heat. And want. The nearness was intoxicating. She could reach out and touch his chest. That broad, sturdy chest that she’d loved having her hands all over. She was edgy now, nervous, as they stood like two sparring partners, tucked away in the back hallway of the coffee shop near the restrooms. She wanted him to touch her again, and she hated that she was still thinking of last night, and how they’d connected so deeply in bed. But also in their conversations all through the night and up to a few minutes ago when they were texting. She was torn between needing to leave and wanting him to pin her against the wall and bury her in kisses that made her weak in the knees. Too bad she could never do any of those things with him again. MFH Teaser 1 Message from Lauren: I want to let you all in on a little secret about me. I love hotfiremen. I stare at hot fireman. I slow down when driving past thefire station to try to get a better look at the men inside. Whichmight explain why I wrote a sexy firefighter series! But all oglingand firemen lust aside, not only are firefighters sexy, they are alsobrave, courageous and active in their communities. As I wrote MELT FORHIM, I learned more about the work that volunteer fire departmentsaround the country do -- both in responding to emergencies and inhelping their communities. And because firefighters have given me somuch inspiration, I wanted to be able to give back with this book. That's why I will be donating half of all my proceeds from thepreorders and release week sales for MELT FOR HIM to the NVFCFirefighter Support Fund that supports the nation's volunteer fire andEMS departments. Together, I believe we can all make a difference andhelp support the men and women who serve our local communities andcome through for us when we need them most! xoxo Lauren About MELT FOR HIM: He knows exactly how to make her burn… Fire captain and bar owner Becker Thomas usually spends his nights alone, trying to escape painful memories from his past. When he meets a sexy, free-spirited brunette outside his bar, he knows he’s found the perfect way to forget for one night. But when he later discovers the woman he’s itching for another night with is his best friend’s sister, everything comes to a halt. Just out of a toxic relationship, Megan Jansen is only in Hidden Oaks to visit her brother, photograph the firemen’s calendar, and then slip off to another adventure. The brooding man who gave her the best sex ever is an unexpected surprise. The problem is, he’s her brother’s friend and a fellow fireman, and Megan’s rule is no firemen. She knows she’s going to get burned …but keeping their hands off each other is easier said than done.

50% of all preorders and release week sales will be donated by the author to the National Volunteer Firefighter Support Fund.
