Review: Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

From the New York Times Bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Mister Moneybags, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Dear Bridget,
I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.
So, here goes.
We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.
But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.
I want you.
The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.
So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.
No questions asked.
Think about it.
Or don’t.
Whatever you choose.
It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

Oh My Gosh! I absolutely adored this book! It was such a cute love story with a tad bit of somberness to it. I have been in a little bit of a book funk lately and I was worried about reading this while I was feeling that way because I am a HUGE Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward fan and I didn’t want my slump to rub off on this book. I am pleasantly please to say that it totally did the opposite, it brought me out of my funk and made me feel all giddy again.

These characters are totally loveable! The characters are hilarious! Their banter was so entertaining, it had me cracking up. Just thinking about some of it now makes me laugh. Simon was so swoon worthy and just perfect! He will steal your heart right from the beginning ladies along with your panties too if you’re not careful. Everything that came out of his mouth was either naughty or funny and Bridget well let’s just say she was no damsel in distress, she could definitely hold her own.

“You’re welcome to climb me, luv, but be careful, some trees have thick wooden branches and you could get poked.”

These two were the best couple. Probably one of my favorite book couples that I have come across in awhile. I never wanted their love story to end! There is a little twist to this story that I never saw coming and I was pretty shocked and you will be too but it tied in great!

This is definitely a book you wanna grab and clear your schedule for so that you can just sit down and consume it. It’s a perfect little love story!

Review: Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

A sexy new standalone from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Vi Keeland

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.
He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.
When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.
You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend--smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.
He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he'd done.
Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.
Only it turned out, the man I'd just told off wasn't the right guy.
Oops. My mistake.
Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.
I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?
That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.
Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.
I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.
Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.
This was going to be interesting…

I devoured this one in a matter of twenty-four hours. Once I started it I couldn’t put it down. I totally loved these characters. Rachel is feisty, sassy and wasn’t afraid to tell it like it is sometimes. I loved that her character was real. Her thoughts & feelings were all accurate and very understandable. Caine was awesome, he was sarcastic, bossy and a little crass at times. He certainly had some alpha male tendencies to him and did I mention that he is Rachel’s Professor? Yeah, he is!

I loved how even though Rachel & Caine having any type of relationship was forbidden it wasn’t the sole focus of the storyline. This book had a great plot and an amazing romance story to it. I loved everything about it!

Beautiful Mistake has humor, steam, sweetness and love all rolled into one amazing book! This is definitely one of Vi Keeland’s best writings in my opinion and that’s saying a lot since I love all of her books pretty much. She has become one of my go to Authors. I know that I can one click her books without even reading the synopsis and know that I am going to receive an amazing read!

Review: Egomaniac by Vi Keeland

A new standalone novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Vi Keeland

The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office.
I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.
He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.  

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.
Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.  

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office.  He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.
Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent.  
I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.  In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place.
I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients.  But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind. 
I never expected my body to react every time we argued.  Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships.  And my job was to help people save their marriages. 
The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.  
And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

I don’t know how in the world Author Vi Keeland’s books keep getting better when they started out fantastic but somehow they just do. If I am being honest though Egomaniac is my favorite story of hers so far and Drew Jagger is most definitely my favorite character of hers.

Drew doesn’t believe in love, doesn’t believe in happy ever after and certainly doesn’t believe in commitment. He does however believe in being blunt, to the point and having as many one night stands as one man can have. Almost everything that came out this man’s mouth was crass.

“Your office? I think you took a wrong turn at the corner of Crazy and Nutjob.”

“I have a rule. Whenever someone asks if they can ask something, I say no.”

In the middle of the crassness though he could certainly talk dirty with the best of them and boy did he ever. (most of it can’t be shared in a review, you will just need to read this book and experience his dirty talking mouth first hand.)

I adored so many things about this story. The flirtatious banter, the sexual tension, the steamy parts of the sexual tension exploding. Most of all though I loved the sweet friendship that these two characters developed that eventually led to love and so much more than either one of them bargained for. They were definitely the ying to each others yang. Emerie was sweet & sassy and didn’t take any crap of Drew. She was exactly what he needed.

This was a perfectly written complete love story in my opinion.
