Book Spotlight: King of Code by CD Reiss

King of Code by CD Reiss Date Released: September 18, 2017
About King of Code From New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss comes a sexy tale of secrets, intrigue, betrayal, and a love worth crossing a continent for.
Taylor Harden is a man on the edge. The edge of fame. The edge of untold wealth. The edge of utter humiliation. He built an unhackable system, and in front of everyone, it’s hacked.  His reputation goes from king to goat in a split second. Boom. Like that. Some dude in Barrington, USA (AKA Nowhere) has locked down Taylor’s code, and if he doesn’t get it back, he’s going to be wearing a monkey suit for the rest of his life. Except, this guy? This hacker from Nowhere? He’s not a guy. 
Harper Watson’s all woman. And she has a plan for Taylor, his code, and his body.

Review: King of Code by CD Reiss

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.
King of Code, which is the first in CD Reiss's new untitled series of standalones, is only my third read from the author--one being a sports romance standalone and the other being a Hollywood romance series starter--so maybe what I'm about to say is based on my limited reading experience as far as her work is concerned, but she's managed to surprise me three times over with how different each book is. This latest release of hers had me going through a range of emotions as I followed the story that had main characters Taylor Harden and Harper Watson so ensnared--or maybe it was more of Harper entangling Taylor, not only in trying to figure out endless lines of coding but discovering anything and everything there was about this woman the King of Code would desire in his queen.

Taylor Harden went from black hat to white hat hacker and he's reaped the rewards of that forced c…

Book Spotlight: Wicked Dirty by J. Kenner (Wicked Nights/Stark World #2)

Wicked Dirty (Wicked Nights/Stark World #2) by J. Kenner Date Released: September 19, 2017
About Wicked Dirty Sometimes bad isn’t good enough…
On the outside, Lyle Tarpin is a clean-cut Hollywood actor whose star is on the rise. Inside, he’s battling his own demons, shunning relationships and finding solace in the arms of a string of anonymous women paid very well for their discretion. 
But when he’s photographed in a compromising position by an over-eager reporter, the only way to save his career is to say that the woman he was with is his fiancĂ©e. And now Lyle has to play a very public game with the only woman who’s ever managed to get under his skin.
Struggling waitress Sugar Laine agrees to spend one night with Lyle—but only because she’s desperate to save her family home. She never expects that a night of passion will turn into a pretend engagement … or that the heat between them will blossom into love.
But sometimes love has a price.
And now the only question is—can Lyle and Sugar af…

Review: Wicked Dirty by J. Kenner (Wicked Nights/Stark World #2)

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review.
Wicked Dirty is the second novel in bestselling author J. Kenner Wicked Nights series, which is, weirdly enough, also known as the Stark World series. If you've read Kenner's work before, you'll know that a lot of her more recent work are spun off of her bestselling Stark series. However, don't feel as if you need to read any of the previous books in any of the series that came before this one. Same goes for the novel that precedes this new release. You'll be able to fully enjoy Lyle Tarpin and Sugar Laine's romance, which pairs an up and coming Hollywood actor with a good guy, clean-cut image he needs to protect and a young woman desperately in need of cash in order to keep her family home. He's got secrets to keep and the only way he's able to meet certain needs is by engaging in paid sexual liaisons with highly discreet women he has no intention of ever cross…

Review: The Outskirts by T.M. Frazier (The Outskirts #1)

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.
Finn was a lot of things. Highly irritable. Exasperating. A complete storm of negativity. But he was also selfless when it came to rescuing me and great at distraction.So great in fact, that while he was kissing me, I'd almost forgotten that he hated me.
Well now, don't I feel stupid for never having read anything T.M. Frazier before today? Okay, okay. Save the tomato flinging, booing, and head-shaking, please. Clearly, my eyes have been opened to the error of my ways, all thanks to The Outskirts, the first novel in the author's duet by the same title. Intrigued from the very beginning and invested until the cliffhanger ending, Frazier left me wanting even more from her main characters, twenty-one-year-old Sawyer Dixon and twenty-five-year-old Finn Hollis and the almost-but-not-quite rundown town of The Outskirts, a swampy contrast to the far more touristy parts of sunny Flor…
