Size matters!!! There’s no doubt about it. It all comes down to acceptance with confidence and personality. And being “On The Plus Side” can also have some sexy and wonderful men longing for those lush curves, voluptuous body and more importantly the heart of the woman.

OnThePlusSide-PerfectFit#2-AlisonBliss-Jun2017

Valerie Carmichael has been tempting Logan Mathis since forever, but when the guy of her hottest fantasies happens to be the best friend of her over protective brother doesn’t bode well for her plan of seduction. But when love is on the line, everything is fair game. And getting the job, as a bartender in Logan’s bar is the perfect setup, right under his nose and in his face all the time

All Logan Mathis wants is to make the bar a success and help his mother not lose her home. He desperately needs to make it work and the she-devil of Valerie is his best option as her bartending talents seem to draw the crowds to his bar, and gives him sleepless nights as he desperately tries to stay away from her.

And so begins the dance of love. Highly intoxicating. Highly erotic. Valerie is one amazing lady of skills, humor and love. Logan never stood a chance resisting her, even when it seems that their newfound love goes through a rough patch.

“On The Plus Side” is my second read of Alison Bliss and she totally made my list of to-read-again writers. Wonderfully narrated, good development of characters and a charming storyline to keep the readers entertained and captivated, “The Perfect Fit” series is a definite rocker!

Rebecca Zanetti’s “Blood Brothers” series started off with “Deadly Silence”, and continues with the “Lethal Lies” that haunt the Blood Brothers. A spin off of the Sin Brothers Series, these blood brothers are trying to eliminate the evil that turned them into experimental soldiers for pure evil intentions. Hiding behind the “Lost Bastards Investigative Agency” as private investigators, Ryker, Heath and Denver are trying to create a normal life for themselves.

LethalLies-Pic#2-May2017

All Anya Best wants is revenge for her sister murdered by the infamous Copper Killer. Profiling and helping the FBI to catch the killer stalking her, she would do anything to bring justice to the innocent murdered, even if she has to fake an engagement to Heath Jones, one of the blood brothers, sexy, brooding and deadly.

Heath Jones wants the same thing that Anya wants, to bring the killer to justice and try to escape the crazy people hell bent on capturing them all and continue enhanced experiments. Falling for Anya was not on the cards; it only brings danger and death to their door. But passion and love have a way of creeping in amidst the chaos and death created by evil.

And the revelation of the Copper Killer is one lethal and deadly surprise!

“Lethal Lies” is the second in the ongoing saga of the brothers created by Rebecca Zanetti, and prowess at creating amazing stories of suspense, adrenaline and nail biting twists. ,

Received an ARC from Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via NetGalley for an honest review.

I’ve read Destiny Bay’s first in the series, “Last Kiss Of Summer” and thought it was real good. But Marina Adair’s second in the series, “Feels Like The First Time” is even better than the first. And I definitely think it’s the chemistry between the characters.

FeelsLikeFirstTime-MarinaAdair

I honestly don’t know why, but from the first page onwards Bradley Hawk was just this super hunk of a guy with a funny bone and mushy heart, and Ali Marshall is like Tinker Bell. The chemistry between these two is just pure magic, never mind that Hawk is Ali’s sister’s ex-husband…just schematics right?

With her sister Bridget breezing into town with plans of getting married, and her estranged mother making her presence felt, Ali has her hands full dealing with dramatics and with her brain all muddled, Hawk and she end up in a fake relationship. And the fun starts. One lie leads to another, one kiss becomes two and more, and before they know, they are far gone in the game of love.

The dialogues are pure pleasure tickling with humor and sensuality, the chemistry between Ali and Hawk is yummilicious, and the plot is rich with emotions and depth, and it “Feels Like The First Time” to enjoy a spectacular romance from the sidelines.

Ali Marshal remains as one of my favorite characters and Marina Adair is becoming one of my to-go writers.

Before Emma’s brother enlisted in the military, he made Ryan promise that he would protect her from everything–including himself.

******************************************************************************************

EXCERPT:

Ryan Blake held a bottle of Maker’s 46 in his right hand, a tumbler in his left. With a flick of his wrist, he tossed the bottle. It flipped once before landing back in his grip, top down, ready to pour. He filled the tumbler, set a napkin on

the bar, and placed it in front of the brunette on the other side. “Bourbon, neat.”

“You’re good.” She picked up the glass and tipped it in his direction. “Not what I was expecting in this little bar in the middle of nowhere.”

“I try,” he said with the friendly, semi-flirtatious smile he always used on single ladies seated at his bar. She wasn’t wrong. The usual clientele at The Drunken Bear had little use for fancy liquor or bartending tricks, but the trio in front of him were tourists looking for a good time, and he’d see that they had one.

“You were just about to tell me about this tattoo.” She placed her hand on his biceps, fingering the eagle he’d had inked there after he flew this coop ten years ago.

“That’s right.” He shifted backward so that her hand slipped to the countertop. He encouraged flirting—it led to better tips and made the night more interesting—but this chick was getting a bit too friendly, considering the diamond band on her left ring finger. “This one was for spreading my wings. Thought I’d fly far away, and yet, here I am back in Haven.”

“You’re from here then?” one of the other women asked, shamelessly ogling the tattoos on his arms while giving him an eyeful of cleavage.

“Born and raised. Moved around a lot, but I can’t seem to shake this place. It’s in my blood.” Once upon a time, he’d been hell bent on getting as far away from this sleepy North Carolina mountain town as possible. Spent the better part of a decade drifting from place to place, taking with him only what he could carry on his bike. Funny how things came full circle. He picked up an empty pilsner glass another patron had left behind.

“Ryan?”

He turned at the familiar voice to find Emma Rush stand- ing there, one hip propped against the bar, and he damn near dropped the glass. Emma’s trademark ponytail and jog- ging pants were nowhere in sight. Tonight, her blond hair cascaded over her shoulders in shiny waves, her blue eyes sparkled at him from behind a tasteful—yet sexy—amount of makeup, and her red top was tucked into a pair of jeans that fit her like a glove. He swallowed past the sudden dry- ness in his throat. “Hey, Em. What brings you out tonight?” “Girls’ night,” she said with a smile, gesturing to her friend Mandy, who stood by the door talking on her cell phone. Emma slid onto an empty barstool. “I wasn’t expect-

ing to see you.”

“I’m still here a few nights a week.” His new business

venture—Off-the-Grid Adventures, an extreme outdoor sporting facility he’d opened with his good buddies Ethan Hunter and Mark Dalton six months ago—was finally bring- ing in enough income that he soon wouldn’t need to bartend to pay his rent. “What can I get you?”

“Untapped amber ale, please.” She watched while he filled a frosted mug. “Thanks.”

“My pleasure.”

She lifted the mug to her lips and took a long drink. “Damn, that’s good,” she said with a happy sigh, setting it on the bar.

“Always been more of a pilsner guy myself.” He tried not to stare as she licked froth from her upper lip.

“Hi, Ryan.” Mandy stepped up to the bar beside Emma. He leaned back, tearing his gaze from Emma’s lips. “Hi.”

Emma turned to her friend with a smile. “Ready to get a table?”

“Yep,” Mandy said. “Have fun, ladies.”

“We will.” With a wave, Emma walked off after her friend, and damn, those jeans cupped her ass like perfection. No doubt about it, Emma looked hot tonight. And his thoughts were way out of line. He’d promised Derek he’d look out for his little sister, not drool all over her.

“Your girlfriend?” the brunette at the bar asked, eyebrows raised as she sipped her bourbon.

Ryan cleared his throat and dragged his eyes away from Emma. “Just a friend.”

“Mm-hmm.” The brunette gave him a look that said she didn’t believe him.

He turned to check on his patrons at the other end of the bar, but his attention was once again diverted by Emma— or rather, the preppy-looking businessman she was talking to now. Ryan couldn’t make out their conversation, but the guy wore an irritatingly smug smile, and Emma didn’t look at all happy to have bumped into him.

Ryan moved down the bar, chatting and pouring drinks as he went, all the while keeping an eye on Emma. She was deep in conversation with the businessman, although the guy seemed to be doing most of the talking. Emma smiled and nodded. She glanced up and met Ryan’s gaze, rolling her eyes at him with a smile while her companion kept on talk- ing.

Next thing Ryan knew, the guy had slung an arm around her shoulders, gesturing wildly with his free hand while Emma subtly edged away from him.

Ryan was around the bar and across the room before he’d even realized what he was doing. “Everything okay over here?”

Emma shrugged out from under the guy’s arm, but her smile wasn’t nearly as warm or genuine as the one she’d given Ryan a few moments ago. “Yep.”

“We’re fine,” Obnoxious Dude answered. “Who are you?”

“Ryan Blake. And you are?” “Tristan Farrell.”

“Tristan and I are . . . old friends,” Emma said.

By old friends, Ryan assumed she meant former flames. And since she clearly wasn’t enjoying his company, it was time for Tristan to leave. Ryan crossed his arms over his chest and stared him down, waiting for the loser to get the message. It didn’t take long.

Tristan backed up, his eyes darting toward the front door. “Well, it was great seeing you, Emma. Take care.”

“You, too.” She watched as Tristan left the bar then turned to Ryan. “Forgot how much I dislike that guy.”

“He hassling you?”

Her eyes rounded. “No! Just talking my ear off, really.

Sorry to distract you from your duties at the bar.”

“No problem.” Keeping an eye on his patrons was part of the job, although he was probably feeling more protective of Emma right now than the situation called for.

“Right, well . . . looks like my table is ready.” She waved over her shoulder as she walked away.

Ryan headed back behind the bar, turning his attention to the trio of tourists and their mostly empty cocktails. “Any of you ladies ready for a fresh drink?”

As it turned out, they all were. While he mixed their cock- tails, he allowed his gaze to roam over to Emma’s table. She was deep in conversation with her friends Gabby, Carly, and Mandy, all of whom he knew, none of whom made his gut tighten the way it did every time he looked at Emma tonight.

He had no idea where this had come from, but he had to get over it, pronto. Emma wasn’t interested in a player like him, and even if she were, she was off limits. He’d made a promise to her brother when Derek went off to war, and Ryan had no intention of breaking it.

This series just gets better and better as each of the “Opposites Attract”, fall in love – irrevocable, irreversible and irresistible!

If I thought “Completely Yours” was one of Erin’s finest writings, “Forever Mine” surpasses beyond that and more. Maya Goodwin is by far Erin’s crowning glory – strong and courageous, witty and tenacious, aggressive and stubborn, never for a second would she hesitates to step in front of danger to save a person. And Dr. Alex Nolan never saw her coming with her swords and boa!

forevermine-oppositesattract2

Cautious and a planner, Alex Nolan doesn’t know what to do with Maya and the instant attraction that sizzles at first sight. His entire life goes on the wind, as he tries to bond with a daughter he never knew he had, battling a rare medical issue, and his constant want for Maya. Keeping the two parallel is a losing battle.

Between the martial classes and sword swinging, between the pages of galactic history and boa classes, and between the passion and lust that sizzle the bed sheets, “Forever Mine” is pure orgasmic read!

Kudos to Erin Nicholas’s creativity and imagination as she weaves these stories in and around superheroes, paying special attention to the chemistry and emotions among the players, keeping the characters down to earth and normal, with enough layers to charm the readers.

Again, some books are beyond reviews and need to be read to enjoy every scene, every emotion and every word and Erin Nicholas’s books are just that.
