Review | Lauren Layne - Just One Night

Riley McKenna knows sex - good sex, bad sex, kinky sex… Her articles in Stiletto magazine are consistently the publication’s most scandalous - and the most read. But Riley has a secret…all that sexy talk? Not an ounce of it comes from personal experience. Her own bedroom escapades are more limited than even her best friends know. When her editor requests that all columnists write something more personal for Stiletto’s anniversary issue, Riley turns to the one man she’s always been able to count on and calls in the favor of a lifetime.

Sam Compton would do anything for Riley McKenna. Anything except be her experimental sex toy. He refuses her request. At least until she tells him that it’ll either be him or she’ll go to someone else. And that, Sam can’t accept. Reluctantly he agrees to her terms - one night of completely meaningless sex in the name of research. Riley thinks she’s prepared for what awaits her in Sam’s bed. After ten years of writing about sex, actually doing it shouldn’t be that different, right? So wrong. What starts as “one time only” becomes “just one more time.” And then one more. And before they know it, Riley and Sam learn first-hand that when it comes to love, there’s no such thing as just one night.

Gossip | Digitaler SuB #2

Es ist mal wieder Zeit meinen digitalen SuB aus der Versenkung zu holen. Heute möchte ich euch zehn Bücher vorstellen, die ich auf Deutsch lesen möchte. Außer natürlich die Übersetzung eines englischen Titels stört mich so sehr, dass ich es sein lasse. Warum ich es dann nicht gleich im Original lese? Manchmal brauche ich auch ein bisschen Abwechslung und lese ein Buch in der Übersetzung; manche Buchreihen hab ich auch auf Deutsch angefangen, die möchte ich auch so fortsetzen.

Gossip | Neuzugänge Oktober / November

Diesen Monat geht das Lesen irgendwie nur schleppend voran (könnte vielleicht an dem schönen, unherbstlichen Wetter liegen, das hierzulande herrscht ;) ), dafür hat sich in meinen Regal etwas getan. Zwölf neue Bücher sind bei mir eingezogen und versuchen irgendwo in den letzten verbleibenden Lücken Platz zu finden.

Review | Tracey Garvis-Graves - Heart-Shaped Hack

When Kate Watts abandoned her law career to open a food pantry in Northeast Minneapolis, she never dreamed it would be this difficult. Facing the heartbreaking prospect of turning hungry people away, she is grateful for the anonymous donations that begin appearing at the end of each month. Determined to identify and thank her secret benefactor, she launches a plan and catches Ian - a charismatic hacker with a Robin Hood complex - in the act.

Ian intrigues Kate in a way no man ever has. But after learning he’s snooped around on her personal computer, she demands retribution. Impressed with her tolerance and captivated by her spirit, he complies and begins to slowly charm his way past her defenses. Time spent with Ian is never boring, and Kate soon finds herself falling for the mysterious hacker.

But Ian has enemies and they’re growing restless. In the hacking world, exploiting a target’s weakness is paramount, and no price is too high to stop an attack. And when Kate learns exactly how much Ian has paid, she’ll discover just how strong her love is for the man who has hacked his way into her heart.

Wanted | New (e)books in December

Die Zeit verfliegt und es geht dem Jahresende zu. Da ich bisher im Dezember noch nicht so viele Neuerscheinungen auf meiner Liste habe, hoffe ich ja, dass ich meinen digitalen SuB ein wenig abbauen kann.

Review | Emma Chase - Sustained

When you’re a defense attorney in Washington, DC, you see firsthand how hard life can be, and that sometimes the only way to survive is to be harder. I, Jake Becker, have a reputation for being cold, callous, and intimidating - and that suits me just fine. In fact, it’s necessary when I’m breaking down a witness on the stand.

Complications don’t work for me - I’m a “need-to-know” type of man. If you’re my client, tell me the basic facts. If you’re my date, stick to what will turn you on. I’m not a therapist or Prince Charming - and I don’t pretend to be.

Then Chelsea McQuaid and her six orphaned nieces and nephews came along and complicated the ever-loving hell out of my life. Now I'm going to Mommy & Me classes, One Direction concerts, the emergency room, and arguing cases in the principal's office.

Chelsea’s too sweet, too innocent, and too gorgeous for her own good. She tries to be tough, but she’s not. She needs someone to help her, defend her…and the kids.

And that -  that, I know how to do.

Im Oktober war nicht nur lesetechnisch einiges los. Nachdem wir erst Anfang des Monats aus dem Urlaub zurückgekommen sind, stand eben meinem Geburtstag unter anderem auch noch die Lesung von Karen Rose auf dem Programm. Anstatt Rezensionen zu schreiben, habe ich die restliche Zeit genutzt, um den schönen Oktober zu genießen :)

Shorties | Tessa Bailey - Chase Me

College drop-out, Roxy Cumberland, moved to New York with dreams of becoming an actress, but her dwindling bank account is quickly putting the kibosh on that fantasy. To make some quick cash, she signs up to perform singing telegrams. Her first customer is a gorgeous, cocky Manhattan trust-funder if she ever laid eyes on one. And what could be more humiliating than singing an ode to his junk, courtesy of his last one night stand? Maybe the fact that she’s dressed in a giant, pink bunny costume...

After a night out to celebrate winning his last case, lawyer Louis McNally II isn’t prepared for the pounding in his head or the rabbit serenading him from the front door. But the sassy wit and sexy voice of the girl behind the mask intrigues him, and one look at her stunning face-followed by a mind-blowing kiss against his doorjamb - leaves Louis wanting more.

Roxy doesn’t need a spoiled rich boy who’s had everything in life handed to him on a Tiffany platter. But there’s more to Louis than his sexy surface and he’s determined to make Roxy see it... even if it means chasing her all over NYC.
