Note: This ARC was provided by Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
Wanted is the first novel in the Monster Billionaire contemporary romance series from the writing duo of Jani Kay and Normandie Alleman. I've read a few of Jani Kay's books before, but this is the first time I've read  anything by Normandie Alleman. Here we've got Foster Cruise, a man born into wealth, worked with wealth, and ended up in prison for five years for a white collar crime related to other people's wealth, a crime in which he has adamantly proclaimed his innocence. Now, he's finally free from the cage that he was kept in, but he isn't naive enough to believe that there aren't people out there still look at him with disdain, believing he played a part in the Ponzi scheme that wrecked many lives. His parents may have turned their back on him, but Foster is ready to make a go of his new life, one funded by the trust fund left to him by his grandmother. Unfor…

Primal Instinct(Bodyguard #2)by Tara WyattRelease Date: May 31, 2016Forever
About Primal InstinctRock you all night long...
The first time he lays eyes on Taylor Ross in a bar, Colt Priestley does something few men would dare to do. He approaches the world-famous singer, shamelessly flirts with her, and gives her a night in his bed that neither of them will soon forget.
When Taylor's record label hires a bodyguard to keep tabs on the out-of-control rocker, she's less than thrilled to find it's her off-the-charts one-night stand who shows up for the job. She's terrified of letting herself fall for the damaged ex-Army Ranger, and she's determined to push him away. Yet every moment they're together simmers with tension. As the danger from an obsessed stalker mounts, Taylor and Colt are tempted to cross that line again-baring their hearts and souls as well as their bodies-and there's no telling how hot this song will get.

About Nacho Figueras Presents: High SeasonWorld-renowned polo player and global face of Ralph Lauren Nacho Figueras dives into the world of scandal and seduction with a new fiction series set in the glamorous, treacherous world of high-stakes polo competition.
Georgia never wanted to be a jetsetter. A plain old country vet was fine for her.

Some of the most gorgeous men too...

Kiss Me That Way(Cottonbloom #1)by Laura TrenthamRelease Date: May 31, 2016St. Martin's Press
About Kiss Me That WayA river divides Cottonbloom in two: the upscale enclave on the Mississippi side and the rundown, rough and tumble side in Louisiana. They’re worlds apart—but nothing can build a bridge like love…
Cade Fournette never had it easy Cottonbloom. He stuck around long enough to raise his orphaned siblings and then hightailed it out West—and never looked back. Even though he’s made a success of himself in Seattle, Cade never lost the toughness and the angry edge that helped him survive down South. His only weak spot: the girl he left behind…
Monroe Kirby came from the wealthy side of town, but that didn’t protect her from her mother’s drinking—or her mother’s boyfriend. It was Cade who did that, on a long-ago hot September night, before he disappeared…along with a piece of her heart. Now Monroe is a physical therapist who can fight for herself, and it’s Cade who could use so…

Review: Kiss Me That Way by Laura Trentham (Cottonbloom #1)

"I thought about you, too." She moved next to him, laying her head on his chest, and he closed his eyes. "I used to pretend my pillow was you and practice kissing it. Mostly, though, I would just hug it and pretend you were hugging me back."The intensely vulnerable feeling that shot through him was something he'd never experienced. He'd done crazy things before–some downright dangerous–but he'd never been stymied by hear. He was a risk taker by nature."You're a much better kisser than my pillow."
I may have been a fan of her Falcon Football series, but the first book in her new trilogy has not only solidified my being a fan of author Laura Trentham's, it's also made me think of her as this generation's go-to author when it comes to small town romances. She's taken what she did with Falcon, Alabama and ramped things up with Cottonbloom, a …

About the Underground Kings series

About Assumption (book one) \ə-ˈsəm(p)-shən\a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof
They say when you assume that you make an ass out of you and me. 
Kenton Mayson learned this lesson firsthand when he made assumptions about Autumn Freeman and the kind of woman she is based on what little information he had. What he finds out is she’s not only beautiful, but also smart, funny, a fighter, and exactly the kind of woman he wants to share his life with.
Autumn made assumptions of her own about Kenton, a…

About Shameless (Playboys in Love #1) People say I’m shameless. They’re right.
I like my work dirty and my sex even dirtier. It takes a hell of a lot to tilt my moral compass, and dancing as a private stripper for horny suburbanites doesn’t even register. Neither does hooking up with them afterward whenever the mood strikes—it’s one of the bennies of the job—but it’s always a one-and-done. I don’t do repeat performances. Ever.
Until I meet the one girl in all of Chicago not interested in dry humping my junk. She’s all I can think about, and that’s a problem, because I made sure she wants nothing to do with me. But I’ve seen her deepest secrets, her darkest fantasies, and they match mine to a fucking T.
I want her. Bad.
Now I need to show her how good it can fe…
