What happens when a boxer finds chemistry with a geek?

Parker Brown can’t believe she needs to hire a fake boyfriend. When she landed her dream job in renewable energy, she thought she’d be entering a world at the forefront of progressive thinking. But the head boss prefers to promote employees who are “settled.” Thankfully, she’s found the perfect candidate, a fellow intellectual looking for some quick cash. What Parker gets is his protective big brother—Rhys Morgan. The tall, muscled ex-boxer with a foul mouth shows up just as her boss does, and now she’s stuck with the manipulative jerk.

Responsibility weighs heavily on Rhys. Now permanently out of the ring, he’s trying to hold together his late father’s gym and keep his younger brother, Dean, on the straight and narrow. To save Dean from himself, Rhys takes his place, ready to give this society girl a piece of his mind. Instead, he finds an opportunity. Even though they can hardly stand each other, posing as Parker’s boyfriend is a win-win deal. She gets to keep her job, and he’ll charm her star-struck boss into sponsoring his gym.

Problem is, they can barely keep their hands off each other. And what started as an easy deal isn’t so easy anymore. Because what future can a rough ex-boxer, afraid to open his heart, and a polished society geek, who has sworn off real relationships, possibly have?

They say opposites attract. These opposites are about to combust on impact.

He can’t stand her, and best believe, the feeling is mutual.
Her life is the complete opposite of what he desires.
So, why can’t they keep their hands off each other?

Forrest Nash is a smug know-it-all. With his brains, ridiculous good looks and penchant for disobeying the laws of both the police and the dark web, Fawn Hill’s resident genius is cockier than any man Penelope Briggs has ever encountered. It doesn’t help that their six-year age difference makes him completely ineligible in her eyes. Add in the fact that he doesn’t want marriage or babies, and that should eliminate him from the dating pool forever. But it doesn’t mean she can’t sleep with him. Once. Or twice. Or ten times. Against all logic, though, Forrest seems to be sneaking into her heart at the same time he’s sneaking into her bed.

Penelope Briggs is one bossy, obnoxious woman. With three young children, a calendar full of school drop-offs and sports, and enough emotional baggage to fill an airplane, this widow is definitely not what Forrest Nash is looking for. And yet, he can’t get enough of the maddening bombshell. But as their hook-ups become a constant, so does his involvement in Penelope’s life. The things he swore he never wanted, love and kids, seem to be the only things on his mind. And when an attack from his part of the cyber world threatens her safety, he’ll have to admit his feelings for the woman he’d do anything to protect.

What started as a convenient friends-with-benefits situation is quickly growing wings. Even if both parties are trying hard to ignore the flutter.

Dear Sexy AF Intern,

I know you don’t particularly care that I’m the CEO of this company, and you’re just an intern. I also know you’re not impressed by my power or my wealth, and that’s fine.

You think you’ve got me all figured out from working alongside me for two weeks, but you don’t know me. Not really.

You don’t know that I’m a single dad to twin toddlers, or that those two little girls matter more to me than this entire hotel chain.

I’m not interested in starting something deep and meaningful, but what I am interested in is the way your body reacts to mine when we’re in the same room. You probably assume the concentration on my face is work-related, when in reality, I’m figuring out which I want more–to nail you against the wall, or to bend you over my desk.

While you’re too disciplined to act on it, I’m not. And the night you stepped into my limo, all bets were off.

March 2019 Non-Bookish Favourites

Hello lovelies! I kind of wanted to try something new this month and do a post of non-bookish favourites. The plan is to showcase five things I loved this month whether it’s music, makeup, clothes, food, whatever. Basically anything that does not pertain to books. So I’m just going to dive right in and tell you guys five awesome things I was obsessed with this month. Let me know what you guys think down below. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

original

1. Gogobebe by Mamamoo

You guys. This song. THIS FREAKING SONG. First of all I love Mamamoo and every single thing they do. But this video. This song. The live performances. The dance. Every single comeback they continue to amaze me. Also the performances they did of Waggy. Solar is such a dumbass I love her. And when Hwasa won for Twit during the comeback week of Gogobebe. I just have too much love for them.

2. Big Mouth
This show is the perfect blend of awkward and funny and slightly offensive humour that speaks to my heart. Finished season one this weekend and can’t wait to dive into the next one.

3. GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Activated Charcoal Treatment Mask
This face mask has changed my life. It smells great and it has seriously reduced acne scaring from that annoying barely-there PMS acne. But I’m pale as all hell, so anything and everything shows. Luckily for me, this mask has seriously helped reduce that while making my skin feel so soft. I’ve actually gone out for errands on weekends without makeup since using it, which is something I haven’t done in years and it feels good.

4. H&M slim fit pants
I bought two pairs online last December, one in black and one in green. Unfortunately, because all I was doing at the time was eating takeout and drinking way too much for my own good, I didn’t fit into them. Fast forward to the end of March and guess who toned down her fat ass thighs to squeeze into them? Well more like just didn’t eat because breakups suck but like who cares because I’m thin enough again. And it was so damn worth it to be able to wear those.

5. Sarah’s Day YouTube Channel
I recently subscribed to Sarah on YouTube and I’m obsessed with her videos. Her and her husband are adorable and they just had their first child at the end of the month. I admire how transparent she’s been about her pregnancy and so far after giving birth. Like yeah, it’s obviously a miracle and the greatest thing in the world (or so I assume because I haven’t popped one of those out of me yet but boy oh boy do I look forward to being a mom), but it’s also hard as fuck. She puts it all out there and I admire people who can be honest about the good and the hard.

Down the TBR Hole #9

Screen Shot 2018-03-06 at 7.12.53 PM

Down the TBR Hole is a meme hosted by Lost in a Story that revolves around clearing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

I’m still at the beginning of my TBR so these are books I added when I was around 17 and oh my lord, my reading tastes have clearly changed a lot since then.

Here’s how it works:

– Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
– Order on ascending date added.
– Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
– Read the synopses of the books
– Decide: keep it or should it go?

10210

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
I have always wanted to read this book and I don’t know why I haven’t yet (cue the GoT shame chants) but this is one of those classics that I am determined to read. Verdict: staying on the list

 

 

5664985

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
This is the Sarah Dessen book that has always appealed to me the most and I tried to read it when I was around 18 or 19(?) but I was in such a reading slump because I was working and going to school full time so I put it down and never got back to it. It does still really appeal to me. Verdict: staying on the list

 

293583

Ophelia by Lisa M. Klein
My Shakespeare loving ass is still so down to read this. Plus I own it, so I really have no excuse. Verdict: staying on the list

 

 

2429135

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
Thinking that this one has got to go. I went through a phase where I wanted to read/see it so badly but to be honest, I don’t really care anymore. Verdict: leaving the list

 

 

8525590

Wither by Lauren DeStefano
Read the synopsis and wow I need this in my life right now. Side note to the publisher: how do y’all have this listed at $17 FOR THE DAMN EBOOK? The paperback is $11. Verdict: staying on the list

 

 

7686667

Delirium by Lauren Oliver
It sounds alright and I really do like the new covers but it’s just not enough to make me want to commit to this series. Verdict: leaving the list

 

 

6482837

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
I really want to read this Lauren Oliver book. I usually enjoy contemporary standalones and this one sounds pretty good. Verdict: staying on the list

 

 

11715276

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
Nope not my thing. Never really cared for the whole witches thing. Verdict: leaving the list

 

 

5395152

The Visibles by Sara Shepard
Also a strong nope. Didn’t even finish the synopsis before I knew this was not for me. Verdict: leaving the list

 

 

7949011

Everything We Ever Wanted by Sara Shepard
This synopsis is literally two sentences and does zero to spark any kind of interest. Verdict: leaving the list

 

 

Staying on the list: 5
Leaving the list: 5
