Synopsis:

Thirteen years before Emma Dumas bought me in a bachelor auction to teach me a lesson she stole my heart down on Key West. I fell so hard for this girl I made all the promises. Only with Emma, I really meant them.

And then I disappeared.

But it wasn’t my fault. Let’s just call my reason “Family Business”. I’d tell you what that business is, but then I’d have to kill you. Just kidding. I can’t tell you what my family business is because it’s so secret, even I don’t know.

My point is… I didn’t ghost. It was a weird twist of circumstances. And OK, yes. I did hook up with pretty much every girl on the island that week. But after I met Emma, I was ruined. She’s the only one I wanted.

It’s been thirteen years. I’m a changed man. I STILL want her. I have ALWAYS wanted her.

But it’s kind of hard to tell her that with a gag in my mouth and a hood over my head.

Bossy Brothers: Jesse features a bachelor auction gone wrong, four smart ladies who botch a crazy revenge kidnapping, a fancy power dream date with fast cars, private jets, and expensive yachts, lots of ex-sex, and a happily ever after that proves… sometimes the best man for the job is a woman.

My Review:

 Honestly when I first started this book the main guy Jesse seemed like whiny playboy and I thought oh no. I also didn't care for Emma because I didn't understand why a woman who supposedly had her life together so much would do something so juvenile because of a guy. However, once I got about 20% in and after she kidnapped Jesse this book got a LOT better for me. I liked the love/hate relationship between Jesse and Emma and the my balls are bigger than yours that they have in the beginning. Also, I liked the mystery of Jesse's family and his brothers that played out more toward the end. I feel like we were left with more questions than answers about his family and I want to read the next brother book to find out more about the family secrets. At the beginning of the book I wasn't a big fan, but towards the end I really liked this book and I feel like that's a hard thing for an author to do.

Bossy Brothers: Jesse Excerpt and giveaway

EMMA

“What are you doing?” I ask.

“What’s it look like?”

“It looks like you’re parking at a Tastee-Freez.”

“Nothing gets by you, does it, Emma?”

“Why are you taking me to a Tastee-Freez?”

“Usually people come here for ice cream.”

I just blink at him.

“You don’t like ice cream?”

“Everyone likes ice cream.”

“Exactly,” he says, grinning like a foolish, charming bastard. Which makes no sense at all, but wow. I’d forgotten about that smile and how disarming it is. He looks at me. “Come on,” he says. “It’s a date, right? You paid ten million dollars for this date and now you’re going to complain when I do something date-y?”

This wasn’t part of the plan. The plan was:

Buy him.

Drive up to his lake house.

Drug him.

Wait for the girls to show up.

Take him over to our lake house.

Tie him up.

Make him regret all his asshole decisions thirteen years ago.

Probably gloat too. Little bit of, “Look at me, so rich and powerful now. And you dumped me, you dumbass. But oh, hey. I’m too good for you now. You could’ve had all this and now you’ve got nothing. Sucks to be you.”

Which is all pretty childish because he’s Jesse Boston. He could get any girl he wants. Just look at how they fell all over him tonight at the auction.

Ten. Million. Fucking. Dollars.

I feel sick. Literally, I feel sick. It’s not that we can’t afford the ten mil. It’s just… that was not the plan. This asshole isn’t worth ten million. What the hell were all those women thinking?

And us. What the hell were we thinking? This is all Hannah’s fault. I’m gonna kill her later.

No revenge plan is worth ten million dollars.

And now he wants to have ice cream with me.

Uggggh.

“So?” Jesse says.

“Hmm?”

“Are we gonna get out of the car? Or are we going to sit here all night?”

“I’m not really in the mood for ice cream,” I say.

He grins at me again. Oh. God. Why is he so damn hot? It’s not fair. “See, that’s the best part about ice cream. You don’t have to be in the mood for it. In fact, eating it when you’re not in the mood is the best part. Because it puts you in the mood.”

And then he does one of those little eyebrow waggles.

I squint at him. “Are you coming on to me?”

“What?”

“Was that innuendo?”

He frowns. “What the fuck are you talking about?”

I point to his forehead. “You waggled at me when you said ice cream puts you in the mood.”

“I didn’t waggle at you.”

I huff. “Dude, you totally did.”

“OK, whatever. If you say I did, then I did. But no. It wasn’t innuendo. Ice cream is like… that’s just what people eat when they’re stressed, ya know?”

I just stare at him.

“God, for a woman who paid ten million dollars for me, you sure are a tough crowd.”

“I know how much I paid for you,” I snap. “Stop reminding me.”

“OK,” he says, holding up a hand. “Would you like me to take you home? Should we just… end this?”

I huff. “I paid ten million dollars for you. I’m getting my date.”

He stares at me. No. He glares at me. “Then get your fucking ass out of my car and order a motherfucking ice cream.”

And then he gets out, not even waiting for me. Just gets out, slams the door, and walks up to the Tastee-Freez and gets in line.

“Rude,” I mumble.

To Love a Prince Review

To Love a Prince by Nana Malone

Synopsis: Provided by Goodreads

The good news is, I'm out of exile and I have the woman I love by my side. And I still have my crown, tarnished though it may be.

The bad news is...all of that is temporary.

There are those that want me as far away from the crown as possible. I still have a killer on my tail who has a more permanent solution in mind. Oh and there's the small matter of all the secrets I'm keeping from Ariel.

For her I risked it all, but will she wind up paying the price?

Once she knows my secrets. What will she do to protect me and the crown?

What will I be willing to do to protect her?

The answer is: everything.


My Review:
Rating: 4 stars


This book picked up right where the last one stopped. I enjoyed unveiling the mystery of who was trying to kill Tristan. This book was different in the first one as that it had a couple of other characters POV besides just Tristan and Ariels. I have come to like the dual POV between the couple to understand what motivates the characters. I will say I love how the women in Nana's books are not damsels in distress but can kick butt when and if needed, even if it's their significant others. Tristan and Ariel's romance was not angst filled but not all sunshine and rainbows. It seemed very authentic to a real relationship. Again, I did not read some of the other side series of this book and I was still able to follow most of the characters, but after reading about Sebastian and Penny and now Tristan and Ariel I can't wait to read more from Nana. Although, I do know my lesson and I will make sure to have both books before starting the first one because they always end on a cliffhanger and you just devour them.

Return of The Prince



Return of The Prince (The Prince Duet #1) by Nana Malone 

Synopsis: Provided by Goodreads

I’ve been a prince in exile, but I'm finally going home, tarnished crown and all. This time, I won't let anyone keep me away...Not Ariel, the woman I left behind. Not the killer on my tail. Hell, not even my cousin--the king--can stop me.

Unlike my conniving brother, I have no designs on the throne. Let better men rule.

But I do have a score to settle.

Everything was going just fine until Ariel is assigned to my protection detail. Little Miss Hates My Guts will ruin everything.

One look at her and I know it's not over between us. All I have to do is convince her I never forgot her...and not get dead in the process.

Return of the Prince (The Prince Duet #1)

My Review:
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

This is the story of Tristan and Ariel. I met Ariel in Cheeky Prince and thought she was badass. I would recommend reading The Cheeky Prince and the other royal books. I have only read the first two about King Sebastian and Penny, but that helped with the background knowledge I needed of the other Royals. I will definitely go back and read the other Royal books. Ariel is now one of Sebastian's (the king) knights. She is tasked to protect his cousin Prince Tristan because he is being targeted. This book had a slow build romance.  Tristan and Ariel used to be together but then he left without any telling Ariel. There is a lot of sexual tension, except Tristan is now engaged. However, things are not as they seem between Tristan and his fiancee. I loved the chemistry between Tristan and Ariel and the fact they didn't fall back together. This was a slow build romance that ended on a cliffhanger so you will definitely want the next book on the ready for when you finish this one and guess what guys! It releases soon! Look back on my blog to see my review of To Love a Prince.
