Dear Mister…**strike out** no, too formal.
Hey there sweet cheeks *strike out* no, too forward.

To whom it may concern,
Full disclosure; before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer—because it was free.

I think it’s important to be open and honest with your co-workers, don’t you?
So here I am, being honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide.
I like you so much it’s clouding my judgment and making me do things I never would sober. Like write this letter.

I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. Your bark is worse then your bite, and you don’t scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.

For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees.
And as long as we’re being honest, that navy blue suit you wear? With the crisp white shirt? It really makes me want to loosen your tie and show you who’s boss.

Love,
Sincerely,
Yours

Review:

Wow. That’s the only word my brain can coherently come up with. Just wow.

This book was incredible. It was funny, it was adorable, and the tension between Peyton and Rome filled every moment of every page. I loved it.

The chemistry between Peyton and Rome was intense. The second he actually noticed her, oh my lord. The banter that flew between them was so funny, it had me laughing out loud even in public (sorry strangers?). And with every moment of banter came an insane amount of tension. So insane that I wanted to hop into the novel and tell them to find a room, or a supply closet, or even a strategically placed phone pole to just get it over with.

Rome was the perfect book boyfriend. I don’t care if he was moody and a tyrant at the office. It was so obvious he had that soft side and damn if I didn’t want to be the one to try and find it myself. Sorry, Peyton.

Hunter was a dream. He was one of the funniest side characters I’ve ever read. His one-liners killed me every single time and I can’t wait to read a book about him because I’m sure it would have me smiling for days.

Meghan Quinn and Sara Ney are such a perfect writing duo. I need them to write a million more novels together. They know how to write a good romance with a good storyline, funny as hell characters, and tension that will keep you flipping pages so quick because you can’t wait to see when it all comes together.

My one small issue was how Peyton’s friends seemed to disappear as soon as she struck out on her own. Once she left Roam, Inc. it was all Peyton and Rome, with the occassional appearance from Hunter. Considering how much of a part Gen played in the story at the very beginning, it would have been nice to at least see her in the book a little bit more.

I don’t normally speak about epilogues much, but oh my goodness, it needs to be mentioned how much I loved it. First of all, it wasn’t a million years in advance, and second of all, it was from Hunter’s POV to set up the next story. Now I’m sitting here just waiting for the next one because I need a book about Hunter in my life.

Overall, I adored this book. It’s definitely one of my favourites of the year. Their ability to write rom-coms rivals that of R.S. Grey, and you guys know how much of a big thing that is coming from me. I can’t wait to read whatever they have to offer next.

About Meghan Quinn:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Today I’m so excited to bring you guys the teaser reveal to Five Reasons to Go, the second and final book in the Risky Hearts Duet by Candace Knoebel. Both the cover and the teaser are so gorgeous. I loved the first book, Ten Reasons to Stay, and can’t wait to read this one!

Title: Five Reasons to Go
Author: Candace Knoebel
Series: Risky Hearts Duet #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 25, 2018

Goodreads

One day a week. That was his rule. And it was also our downfall.

My marriage to Hank was one of convenience. When I got pregnant at sixteen, he took me in and kept a roof over my naïve head. We had an agreement—we could sleep with whomever we wanted so long as our children were kept in the dark. It worked great… until it didn’t.

Cocky Jack Swanson was never supposed to be mine. His marriage was open, but his heart was guarded… until he slowly let me in, revealing an alluring man with a painful past. With him, I felt what love could be. I felt wanted… needed. I’d never wanted to fall in love… but then I did.

And now… the rules have changed.

Jack isn’t the same man I fell for. Broken and gutted from his divorce, he’s a shell of who he once was. Sullen and worn down. I know I can bring the good in him back out, if only he’ll let me in. If only he’ll just stay, instead of giving me all his reasons to go.

Top 5 Tuesday: Tropes I’ve Had Enough Of

tft - banner

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly feature over at Bionic Book Worm.

This week’s topic is tropes I’ve had enough of. While reading, there are definitely a few tropes out there that make me roll my eyes so hard, they might eventually get stuck like that. Some are overplayed, some are unrealistic, and others are just a mentality we really need to break out of in 2018. Read below to see my five picks.

1. Girl-on-girl hate
This is one of the tropes that grinds on my gears the most. The way women treat each other in books can be so cruel. A sub-genre of this trope is the girl who thinks she’s “not like other girls” and then proceeds to hate on every other girl to somehow make herself seem superior. The only thing she’s really doing is making herself look bad. Also when girls get super catty with each other over nothing. Ladies, we need to be building one another up, not tearing each other down!

2. Slut shaming
This ties into the first topic because women definitely do slut shame one another, but men in books are also so guilty of this, which makes my stomach churn. It is absolutely no one’s business who a woman may or may not be sleeping with, how many people she’s slept with, if what she’s wearing might be too revealing, etc.. In books, no matter which character is saying it, it’s usually a comparison to the main love interest as well. Just compliment the main girl and leave other women out of it.

3. Insta-love
NO. NO NO NO. Anyone who knows how much I read and blog hears me bitch about this one a lot. This is not a thing in real life oh my god. You do not meet someone and fall in love with them in the span of a week. Sure, you can like them a lot and be so attracted to them it hurts and have this connection you’ve never felt with anyone else before, but you know nowhere near enough about them to fall in love. Experience a real hardship first. Live together for a bit. Do more than bang each other every moment you see one another. My god. Repeat after me book characters: I am not in love after a week.

4. The never-present parents
This is one that YA contemporary novels are so guilty of. I don’t understand how characters can just take a road trip to anywhere at a moment’s notice or stay out all night all the time. I grew up with pretty chill parents, and every time a 15 or 16 year old is out at a 24/7 diner by themselves at 3am it blows my mind. Like why are you not in bed? Or at the very least in your room in your PJs watching Netflix? Go home.

5. How every single guy in a contemporary romance is loaded
This is a half-complaint because don’t get me wrong, if a guy who had a face and body that looked like it was hand-carved by the Gods, owned his own company, and had the greatest personality ever was trying to get into my pants and make me his wife, I wouldn’t be turning him down. That’s for damn sure. Like please, hit me up and let’s get married. I just don’t understand how almost every single guy in a contemporary romance novel falls under this category. I get it, it’s hot. I agree. But sometimes it’s just a lot.

Excerpt:

Like a goddamn ray of sunshine, light streaming behind her from the window, a halo shining above her pretty head.

Her lying, beautiful head.

Dark hair, wavy and glossy, down around her shoulders, the rich color picking up red from the sun.

She’s holding a glass—it’s poised at her lips and she’s about to take a sip—when our eyes meet. She lowers it, her mouth parts, and her smile spreads.

Until I scowl. Then, her face morphs from happy to concerned in a second. Damn right she should be concerned.

I nod.

She nods.

My eyes trail down the front of her and I note her dress—it’s baby blue, wrapped and tied at the waist, and shows off her curves while highlighting her legs in those sexy-as-shit heels.

Stop thinking about her curves and legs. You’re not here to admire her.

The pile of gifts in the corner pisses me off, bringing me back into the present, back to my rage, and has me lifting my arm; crooking my finger.

Peyton’s brows go up at the same time her head cocks and she pokes a finger into her own chest. “Me?”

“Yeah. You.” I know she can’t hear me, but I say it anyway—and if she’s any good at reading lips, she’ll haul her ass over here right quick.

Her cup is passed. Skirt gets smoothed out. Chin tilts high.

She heads over.

Good girl.

“Follow me,” I order her when we’re on the outskirts of the room. When we’re clear across the office common area, I pivot to face her.

She’s shorter, even in heels, so I have to dip my head to glare at her.  “Want to tell me exactly what the fuck is going on in there?”
