Fun Sports Romance

Lucky Number Eleven - Adriana Locke

Lucky Number Eleven by Adriana Locke is a captivating football romance.  Ms. Locke has given us a well-written book populated with outstanding characters.  After being dumped by her boyfriend, Layla and her friend Poppy drive to the family cabin for a long weekend.  They weren't aware Layla's brother and his friend Branch had the same idea.  Branch and Layla's story is a fast-paced romp, full of drama, lots of humor and sizzlin' hot sex.  I enjoyed reading Lucky Number Eleven, even though it's in first person, alternating point of view format...which I hate.  Kudos to Ms. Locke for making this story so enjoyable I didn't mind the first person...much.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Entertaining Contemporary Romance

Tap Left - A. Zavarelli

Tap Left is my first book by A. Zavarelli so I didn't know what to expect.  This is a well-written book.  I like the characters.  Now for what I didn't like.  I don't care for the 1st person, alternating point of view format.  I'd have much rather read it in 3rd person.  Also, the angst was a higher level than what I can stand.  That being said, I did like the story.  Lola and Daire's story is packed with drama, angst, humor and smoking hot sex.  I also appreciated that this is a complete story, not a cliff-hanger.

Amazing Historical Romance

The Warrior of Clan Kincaid - Lily Blackwood

Wow!  The Warrior of Clan Kincaid by Lily Blackwood is a phenomenal historical romance.  Cull was bought from a slavers ship and became a warrior for the King 's Guard.  Derryth was kidnapped by Cull's men on her way home from visiting her sister.   Derryth and Cull's story is loaded with action, suspense, humor, steamy sex, drama and lots of twists and turns.  This story captured me at the first page and didn't let me go until the end.  I loved it.  The Warrior of Clan Kincaid is book 3 of the Highland Warrior Series but can easily be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

6 Star Humor

Co-Wrecker - Meghan Quinn

Co-Wrecker by Meghan Quinn is a fabulous contemporary romance.  When I started reading this book, it had two things I try to avoid, right off the bat.  I don't like first person and I avoid new adult books.  That being said, I totally loved this book.  Ms. Quinn has delivered a book that is well-written and populated with amazing characters.  After an embarrassing incident, Andrew changes schools, finds an apartment and gets a job.  Sadie has dropped out of college and has more baggage than a little bit and is tasked with training Andrew.  Their story is loaded with drama, humor and sizzle.  There is an angst factor but the author has kept it under control, so it isn't overwhelming to the point it ruins the story.  The best thing about this book though, the humor.  The interaction of the friends and the humor is stellar.  Kudos to Ms. Quinn.  I enjoyed this book from the first page to the last and look forward to my next book by Meghan Quinn.  Co-Wrecker is book 1 of the Binghamton Series, but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
