Wheeler (Review)

Wheeler
Sara Butler Zalesky
Publication date: July 4th 2016
Genres: Adult, Romance, Sports, Suspense

Known as the Ice Queen of the peloton, pro cyclist Loren Mackenzie rarely shows emotion in the heat of competition; she leads her team with quiet strength and determination. But her successes have not come without suffering, and her tragic past is hidden inside tarnished armor.

While out on a training ride with her cycling team near Enfield, England, a chance meeting quickly develops into an unexpected whirlwind romance. But a relationship with an A-list celebrity brings with it the microscope of tabloid-media attention, which expose jealousy and rivalry that threaten to undermine Loren’s leadership of her team.

The new romance also reveals a dangerous obsession, culminating in a terrifying confrontation with someone from Loren’s past. Her injuries not only put her chances at the World Championship in jeopardy but also bring forth memories of a life she had long buried – for good reason.

Can Loren open her heart to the love she has held at a distance, or will her fear ultimately defeat her?

The follow up novel in the Wheeler series is coming soon.

Review:

4+ 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

I’ve been reading Romance for 3-4 years. The first books I got my hands at got me hooked up because of the typical ‘love-drama’ And the interaction between main characters. As I’ve gotten wiser and gain experience I’ve found I need something more from the main characters to trap me into the book and fall into its depths and that’s what has happened with these book. When Unread the blur I was expecting something entirely different. I knew I was going to read about a strong female practicing a not-so-common sport for women. I also found that Loren is more than what she lets people see, and that’s what’s made this book special to me. I saw some resemblance with my own persona.
Then we have Graham, sweet and sexy. The connection between them it’s really powerful from the beginning and we can see how both their characters develop, as a couple but also as individuals.
Best part, this is just the first chapter of the serie. The story just began.

Author Bio:

Sara was born in the wee hours of a November night in New York City. When her family moved to a small borough in northwestern New Jersey, she had little choice but to move as well. Self-sufficiency is a tough thing for a toddler.

The dichotomy of being the middle child of three, but the only girl, was difficult, as typically no one really pays attention to a middle child. Mostly, Sara spent her time creating fanciful stories in her head when she should have been focused on other things, an issue that continues to this day.

Most of these stories have never been shared, let alone completed. This all changed in the spring of 2015, when Sara was encouraged by a friend to expand upon a short story she had accidentally emailed to him. The result is ‘Wheeler’, a romantic, women’s fiction/sport novel, which combines the author’s romantic inclinations and her passion for cycling.

Sara currently resides in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA, with her loving husband and their son. She is a paralegal for a boutique law firm in Chester County, Pa, an avid road cyclist and indoor cycling instructor at a national chain.

Lingerie on the Floor (Book Tour)

Lingerie on the Floor

by Amanda Aksel
(The Londonaire Brothers Series, #1)
Publication date: June 28th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Rated: 4 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

Blurb:

I have a passion for lacy designs. But my lingerie business is in trouble. If I don’t find an investor before I return to L.A., I’ll be forced to close my London boutique. The good news is the top fashion magazine wants to feature Kate Golden Lingerie in a double page spread. The bad news—they want me to model my lacy thong.

How can I say no? I care way more about sexy lingerie than I do about love, until him . . .

Drew, the insanely hot photographer I keep crashing into. I can’t help myself. He drove me wild during our boudoir photo shoot. Those eyes. That delicious mouth. The way he feels between my legs when I’m riding on the back of his motorcycle. I know, he’s a rich, bad boy, who only dates models. Sooo not my type. I’m not his either. But we can’t keep away from each other, even when we try . . .

Review

Lingerie on the floor is what you’ll expect of a book with this kind of title: sexy. One of the biggest points is the attraction between the main characters, it’s pure chemistry.

Kate is a lingerie designer, and even though she creates beautiful, sexy pieces for women to feel that way, she doesn’t really feel it. She needs a push to become the woman she really has inside. She is a good role for entrepreneur women, having her own business and taking control of the financial problems herself. She’s not afraid to fight in a men’s world while looking for an investor.

Drew is a fashion photographer but also the youngest son of a ‘royal family’ in London. He’s not what everybody would assume knowing his family background. Passionate about photography, he doesn’t care about his heritage that much. You can see his good heart with a touch of badass. Also, he rides a motorcycle.

They both grow together and make an awesome couple, being strong, intelligent, charismatic, artistic souls.

I recommend this book for those who love a good romance and for those who like the beginning of an interesting series about 3 brothers.

Be aware of the Bonnaire brothers. (Next one is Kent but I can’t wait to read Mick’s story).

ALEX: Perfect Opposite Book One (Extended edition) 

by Zoya Tessi 

Publication date: January 2017

Genres: New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:

Their wishes were simple and modest. Fate had other things in store though, and she can be a real bitch sometimes.

All he wanted was to get the job done and somehow to endure those long months playing nanny to a spoiled little rich girl. Without strangling her with his bare hands in the process. Well, it is going to be much easier said than done.
All she wanted was to escape the past and live like any other nineteen-year-old girl. Her plan definitely didn’t include the arrogant, tattooed savage, with his awful mohawk hair and lack of social graces, whose only mission was to stick real close and mess up her life.
But, people aren’t always what they seem to be, are they?

Publication date: September 16th 2016
Genres: New Adult College Romance

BEFORE ANYONE ELSE

The Hashtag Series #8

Happily-ever-after.

That’s what happens when you get married.

Right?

Turns out sparkly rings, cake and a fantastic wedding do not automatically grant you that, not even when it’s all you truly want.

I’m even starting to doubt the bottomless, unconditional love I share with the man I married will be enough.

I can’t have happily ever after, know why?

Because I can’t give Romeo what he truly wants. I’ve tried. So hard. I won’t be happy unless he is and something is missing. Someone.

Paparazzi are in my face. The flashing cameras and prying eyes are everywhere. My secret is getting harder to hide, and I know the second the scoop is dished the grip I have on the fraying rope of that happily ever after will snap right in my face.

In our face.

I can’t let that happen. No matter what.

Because with or without a happy ending, Romeo comes Before Anyone Else.
