Ms. Manwhore by Katy Evans

Posted by Chris at 7:22 AM 0 comments
I am not one to give 5 star reviews very easily. After all, that means it is pretty much perfect. But when you read something that touches you in a way that you will remember it always, wraps you up and makes you forget the world while you are reading, then it deserves a 5 star rating. That is what the first installment of the ManWhore series did for me. Since then, there has been 1 other book in the series. This review is for the 3rd and closing portion of the series. One that I have been waiting to read!

Ms. Manwhore by Katy Evans
Publisher: Pocket Star (October 5, 2015)
Publication Date: October 5, 2015

Katy Evans returns with a sexy novella, the final installment of the unforgettable love story that began in Manwhore.

What lies ahead for Chicago’s most envied couple, Malcolm Saint and Rachel Livingston?

Sparks flew between them in Manwhore. Separated by deception, they felt the intensity and heat of their attraction turn up in Manwhore +1.

Will Chicago’s wealthiest and most notorious player finally settle down, or will one woman never be enough? Find out in Ms. Manwhore, the ultimate conclusion to their electric, breathtaking story.

My Thoughts:
I absolutely loved the first book in this series and if you have not checked it out, you need to! This new release is in ebook format only and it is told from Rachel's perspective. It shares the sweet conclusion to this story that those who love happy ever afters will have to pick up.

It is all about the proposal and the craziness that occurs when the wedding is announced. The bride-to-be has a unique perspective on what she wants, much to Malcolm's dismay. But ever the gentleman, he will do whatever his bride wants.

Katy Evans has a way with words that just wraps you up and sucks you right into the story, leaving you with memorable characters and unforgettable memories of the story. I sigh just thinking about her books. She is on my permanent must-read list!

This is sweet conclusion that is a perfect finishing touch to this series. One thing to note... there is a bit of flirtation going on between some best friends. Maybe another book in the works? We can only hope! I, for one, am not happy about losing Malcolm.

How Forever Feels by Laura Drewry

Posted by Chris at 7:41 AM 1 comments
When you are looking for a light-hearted, sweet romance story, there is a series that you want to check out. This upcoming new release is book 4 in the series of Friends First by Laura Drewry. A delightful read that is just right for a lazy afternoon.

How Forever Feels by Laura Drewry
Publisher: Loveswept
Publication Date: October 13, 2015

How Forever Feels is a sweet tale about the one that got away . . . and the one that came back.

Maya McKay’s heart is as big as Jack Rhodes’s shoulders are broad. Their chemistry is out of control, but it could never work between them because Jack is more than just best friends with her cheating ex-husband—they’re like brothers. Maya, the sensitive, practical florist, has given up on love and is ready to settle for like. But now that Jack’s around again, he’s stirring up old feelings—and turning Maya’s fantasies into irresistible reality.

Jack blew his chance with Maya years ago when he stepped aside for his best friend, Will, and he’s still kicking himself about it. Maya was promised forever once before, and she got burned. But when Jack realizes that second chances aren’t going to fall out of the sky, he seizes the moment—and the woman he’s always loved—to show her how forever truly feels.

My Thoughts:
Every once in a while, I enjoy picking up a light-hearted story that is a quick and easy read. This new release comes only in e-book format and made for an entertaining evening.

This was the first book I have read by this author so I was excited to see what she has to offer. Knowing that this was book 4 in a series, I was expecting to be a bit lost, but you are quickly introduced to the gal pals and the subjects of the other books. This is a stand alone read but one that makes you want to go back and pick up the other books too.

The author does a great job with the character development and the love interest between the 2 main characters, Maya and Jack. You know they are right for each other, but getting Maya to realize it was a struggle and tiptoeing through their friendship was agonizing at times. You did get to know a lot about Jack and his background, which is heartbreaking.

I wanted to really fall for Jack but I had a hard time with the fact that he was written as somewhat weak. He was overwhelmed with guilt about caring for Maya and his dedication to his foster family, who have screwed him over in the past. It took the whole book for him to finally get his act together. Maya annoyed me in that she was quick to judge Jack when a huge secret came out and she blamed him for not telling her.

Overall, the book was entertaining and fun. I did enjoy many parts of it and was pleased with the happy ever after ending. There was a spark between the two that was missing for me to bring this to a must-read status. But it is a sweet read that you will enjoy for a lovely getaway from it all.
