Currently Reading: The Wedding Lullaby (One Night to Forever Book 2) By Melissa McClone

This is book 2 of One Night To Forever and I have to say that I loved the first book. So I am happily reading this one and hoping that it will be as good, if not better than the first book.

The Wedding Lullaby (One Night to Forever Book 2) by [McClone, Melissa]

Blurb:

An impromptu wedding—one night of escape.

That’s all Laurel Worthington’s joke marriage to Brett Matthews was ever supposed to be. But somewhere between the tacky Reno ceremony and annulment day, the troubled socialite surrendered to the romance of a honeymoon night and her wealthy husband’s undeniable charm. When Laurel finds out her faux wedding has produced a very real result, she reaches out to Brett for help. But what can she expect from a virtual stranger—even if he is the father of her unborn child?

After Brett discovers Laurel is pregnant, he sets his mind on marrying her. He’s determined to be the kind of father he never had. But this time around, Laurel will only settle for a love match. Despite their overwhelming chemistry, Brett isn’t convinced he can give her what she needs. Is he capable of stepping up and being the kind of husband and father his new family deserves?

Let’s Check Out Review: Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan — The Little Contemporary Corner

I’m not normally a huge reader of fantasy but so far this year I’ve dug into Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi and now Girls of Paper and Fire by Nastasha Ngan – both of which I have loved! GOPAF was our Book Club pick for April and I truly adored it. I was unsure how I’d feel but […]

Caitlyn:

I was promised a Nice Boy, but one look at my fiance and I know better.

I’ve had a plan for myself since I was a little girl: college, career, marriage, kids. Now that I’m established in my career, I’m looking forward to the next step: Marriage. But it looks like Mr. Right didn’t get his save the date card. 

That’s why I decide to go with an arranged marriage using a modern day match maker.

Visions of white picket fences are dancing in my head on my way to meet my new fiance but when I get my first look at Josh I can’t breathe.

Oh sure, he’s hot as heck and I can’t resist giving in to every opportunity to be alone with him but marry him? I’m not so sure about that.

Josh is all bad boy; tattoos, dirty mind, and foul mouth. Hardly husband material.

Is happily ever after really possible with a man like Josh?

Joshua:

My last relationship ended with a wrecked house and a night in jail…I’m ready for a woman that’s crazy about me, not just crazy.

So when my boss tells me she’s gonna find me a wife, I can’t argue with the woman who’s like a mother to me. 

I know Caitlyn’s the perfect woman as soon as I set eyes on her and I love knowing she wants me just as bad as I want her. 

I won’t let anything get in the way of putting my ring on this woman’s finger and starting our life together.

My Review:

First off, I just want to say that I liked this book better than the first book. That’s because I actually got what I was asking for! There was more depth in the story and behind the characters and it made the story better right off to start with. There was more details that made the characters more interesting and that was very pleasing. It wasn’t just a story about people getting married and having hot sex.

This was a story about not judging what someone looks like at first to see who they are and what they represent. Things aren’t always what they seem to be. I really enjoyed this book and I was kind of bummed when it ended. The way it ended was pretty good but I just didn’t want it to end is the thing. The couple were a perfect match as you will see once you read it. There are a few surprises in the story that make it interesting. This story, I believe, is for everyone.

I hope you enjoyed my review.

Currently Reading: A Nice Boy by Rocklyn Ryder

I am currently reading the next book in the Arranged Marriage Romance Series. This is an 11 book series. So far I seem to be liking the second book better than A Perfect Gentleman. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Here is the cover of the second book. I am 74% of the way through the book.

Brooke:

I’m ready for my happily ever after but I’m obviously incapable of telling the difference between a good man and a good time.

What’s a girl to do when she can’t trust her own judgment? Let her bestie pick a husband for her of course!

When my BFF finds a modern day matchmaker online, I break down and give it a shot. What have I go to lose, right? Except when my future husband looks more like Mr. Rogers than Mr. Right I get cold feet.

Aiden’s a perfect gentleman but maybe I was hoping for something a little rougher around the edges.

Aiden:

I’m done playing the field.

I’m ready to start a family and I want a wife at my side who’s in it for the long haul. I’m sick of trying to find a good woman on my own. I want what my brother has, dammit.

He’s happy with his wife and they just announced their second baby’s on the way. I’m so jealous I can think straight. An arranged marriage worked for them.

That’s why I’m trusting Raven’s matchmaking services to find me the right woman. Brooke is that woman. The only woman for me and I know it as soon as I see her. But her friend tells me that Brooke’s done with guys like me so if I want her I’m going to have to convince her I’m not like those other guys.

I hate dressing up like a office monkey but I’ll be a perfect gentleman if that’s what it takes to get my ring on Brooke’s finger and my baby in her belly.

My Review:

When I first started reading this book I liked the character Brooke right away. Thinking her “picker” was broken when picking guys. Some of us have the luck and some of us don’t. I felt for the characters right off the bat. It was like they were real people and I wanted to meet them and get to know them,

There was a twist in the book that was a little chuckle worthy and it also worked out for the best. There was plenty of heat in this book too. Don’t get me wrong, sure this may have been an arranged marriage book but there are plenty of hot moments in here that can make you sweat. There are also some sweet moments too as well as a comical moment or two.

Overall I was very happy with this book I just wish that the characters had a little more depth as well as the story.

Have a wonderful night and happy reading!

Blurb:

Things aren’t easy for an Alpha-born werewolf. Jared has lived- and run from- this truth for all of his life, happy to stick to a bare minimum of fleeting friendships and romantic encounters, never quite putting down roots or taking on responsibility. When tensions rise and his brother Tobias is forced to kick him out of his family home, Jared takes it in stride. After all, what could be worse than the constant conflict he had to endure with his family?

Darwin doesn’t see life this way. Family is everything and he would do anything to keep his father safe. As a submissive, one who is supposed to be protected and kept safe, he feels the need to take care of those around him, even though things in his pack aren’t as they should be. First of all, they don’t know Darwin is a submissive. And secondly, if they were to find out, his life would be forfeit. Already, his Alpha and leader, Carl, has his suspicions about the brittle young man, but playing the dominant is a sacrifice Darwin gladly makes for the sake of his father.

When Jared meets Darwin, he doesn’t expect to fall madly in love, and he definitely doesn’t expect to care this much about what might happen to Darwin if Jared doesn’t step up and save him from his Alpha. A little heroism doesn’t seem like too tall an order at first, but when he realizes the deep trouble Darwin is in, he finds that he might have bitten off more than he can chew.

This is not an omegaverse or [mpreg] story. It does not conform to the popular archetypes, although similar wording is used.

When I started reading this book I thought that it would just be a romance. I was wrong. There is a lot that goes on in this book that I loved and it clearly had more in it than I ever thought it would which made me happy. But… the ending just made me want more from the characters after we had been through that rollercoaster of action and sadness and beatings and everything you could possibly think of. This is going to be one of my favorite shifter stories of all time just because it had a little bit of everything for everyone. 

I guess the ending was as good as it could get but I got so attached to these characters that I wanted more than what I was given. So I give this 4 stars instead of 5 but don’t let that deter you from reading this great book. It has heat in it, heart, sadness, action, and even some regular safe times too, you’ll see. Just check it out.
