Sucedió un verano

Sucedió un verano | Las hermanas Bellinger #1 | Tessa Bailey

Piper Bellinger es una influencer del mundo de la moda y su reputación de alocada hace que la persigan los paparazzi. Tras acabar en el calabozo por organizar una fiesta ilegal con demasiado champán en la azotea de un hotel, su padrastro decide que esa es la gota que colma el vaso. De modo que la deja sin dinero y para que aprenda lo que es la responsabilidad, la envía… al estado de Washington, donde acabará regentando el bar de su difunto padre junto con su hermana.
Piper no lleva ni cinco minutos en Westport cuando conoce a Brendan, un corpulento y barbudo capitán de barco, que cree que no durará ni una semana lejos de Beverly Hills. ¿Qué pasa si es una negada con las matemáticas y si la idea de dormir en un piso cochambroso con literas le da escalofríos? Tan malo no puede ser, ¿verdad? Está decidida a demostrarle a su padrastro, y también a ese capitán de barco tan guapo y gruñón, que es más que una cara bonita.
El problema es que está en un pueblo pequeño y se cruza con Brendan cada dos por tres. La extrovertida reina de las fiestas y el pescador gruñón son polos opuestos, pero la química que surge entre ellos es innegable. Piper no quiere distracciones, ni mucho menos sentir algo por un hombre que se pasa semanas faenando en el mar. Sin embargo, a medida que reconecta con su pasado y empieza a sentirse como en casa en Westport, empieza a plantearse si la fría y glamurosa vida que ha llevado hasta el momento es la que desea de verdad. Aunque siente la llamada de Los Ángeles, tal vez Brendan y ese pueblo lleno de recuerdos hayan conquistado su corazón.

Reseña | Roommate

Roommate | Sarina Bowen
AUTORA: Sarina Bowen
GÉNERO: Romance contemporáneo
EDITORIAL: Tuxbury Publishing
Wanted: One roommate to share a 3-bedroom house, split the rent, and ideally not be the guy I can’t stop thinking about.
I’m a man with too many secrets, so the last thing I need is a new roommate with a sexy smile and blue eyes that see right through me. Eight years ago, Roderick left town after high school. We’re not friends. I owe him nothing. But back then, I let one of my secrets slip, and he’s the only one who noticed.
Part of me knows I should run far, far away. But the other part wants him to come upstairs and spend the night. But if I let him in, I could lose everything.

Seeking: A room to rent in town. I’m tidy, have no pets, and I will feed you homemade bread.
I should probably add: Gay AF, and has no filter. It’s no wonder my new landlord is so wary of me.
A smarter man would ignore those hot glances from Kieran Shipley. The broody lumberjack wants more from me than another homemade pretzel, but if I push my luck, I’ll end up back on the street.
Too bad I’ve never been smart with my heart…

Reseña | IRL: In Real Life

IRL: In Real Life | After Oscar #1 | Lucy Lennox & Molly Maddox
IRL: In Real Life
AUTORAS: Lucy Lennox & Molly Maddox
GÉNERO: Romance contemporáneo
EDITORIAL: Autopublicado
SAGA: After Oscar #1

It starts with a drunken text pic. The kind I would normally never send. Only, instead of it going to the flirty hotel bartender, it goes to some random stranger who actually responds.
I tell myself an unexpected night of hot as hell back-and-forth is the perfect way to blow off a little steam while I’m in New York closing an important business deal. Little do I know the man on the other end of the line is none other than Wells Grange: the most controlling, egotistical, emotionless SOB I’ve ever met.
I spend my days squaring off against Wells in the boardroom, and my nights succumbing to the sexy stranger’s commanding texts in the bedroom. Within days, I’m falling for someone I shouldn’t, and I have to remind myself that none of this is real.

The first thing I notice about Conor Newell when he sits down in my high-rise conference room is how delightfully nervous he is. Then I see his tie. The same geeky tie that’s held hostage on my phone. The one that belongs to my anonymous late-night texter. And it changes everything.
I should confess. Tell the truth about who I am. Instead, I decide there’s no harm in flirting. After all, once our business is concluded, he’ll be out of my life for good.
The more I get to know Conor, however, the more I start to fall for him. Which is a problem, because I made a vow long ago to never let emotions interfere with my life, either business or personal. Except I can’t stop thinking about him night and day. If it’s only in my head, though, it doesn’t count.
After all, it’s not like we’re falling for each other in real life...

Reseña | Rocket science

Rocket science | Love logic #1 | K.M. Neuhold
Rocket science
AUTORA: K.M. Neuhold
GÉNERO: New Adult
EDITORIAL: Autopublicado
SAGA: Love logic #1

Saying I've had a crush on my best friend's older brother, Pax, most of my life is like saying the big bang was just an explosion. It's true, but I'm not sure that quite captures the essence of its true enormity.
I know he's only hanging out with me because I'm new in town and getting my PhD doesn't leave me with much time to make friends. And even if it did, my strength is mathematics, not friend-making. What I don't understand is why he kissed me... why he seems to want to keep kissing me. I don't think my advanced physics knowledge is going to help me figure this one out. But I think for once I'm okay with not knowing, as long as Pax and I don't know together.
He's still the awkward Nerdlet I remember...he's also probably the cutest, most tempting man I've laid eyes on. I know I should keep my hands off him, but this thing between us is like a force of nature. I want to be his first everything. He says we're nothing more than atoms crashing into each other. I'm no scientist but I don't think either of us are braced for the explosion.

Reseña | Starstruck

Starstruck | Opposites attract #1 | LJ Stark
TÍTULO: Starstruck
AUTORA: L.J. Stark
GÉNERO: Romance contemporáneo
EDITORIAL: Autopublicado
SAGA: Opposites attract #1
I was a working actor struggling to make rent when I scored a part in Aiden Hunt's latest blockbuster.
Too bad the man himself turned out to be rude, abrasive and annoyingly cocky. But at least I'd never have to see him again after filming.
Or so I thought.
One drunken wrap party and two gold rings later, I'm married to the bastard and we need to sell a fairytale romance to the tabloids, his legions of fans, and the world.
Falling for him in the middle of all this should be out of the question.
Hollywood has a bad habit of chewing up young, starry-eyed actors and spitting them right out. That was what I thought would happen to Peter Czerny, and I didn't care. He was rude, self-righteous, and...distracting.
Ending up married to him was an inconvenience, but I could use it for my own gain.
I just didn't bank on Peter getting under my skin. He slipped into my life like he's always belonged there, and we have an attraction that my body can't deny.
I just need to get him out of my system.
Then we can both go back to our two separate lives.
Somehow, playing a role has never felt this complicated.
