About SEXIEST MAN ALIVE (Knight Fashion Book 1)
Nathan Cross is a struggling actor waiting tables at a local restaurant to make ends meet while he attends endless auditions. Though his hopeful career moves at a slow pace, Olivia is the strength and sunshine in his life… until she leaves him. One day, he is offered a contract with a modeling agent, leading him to work for Knight Fashion Magazine—a dream job he never imagined would become a reality.

Olivia swore she would always put her career first and that’s precisely what she did when she left Nathan. Having a deadbeat dad and watching her mom work two jobs to make ends meet have been her driving force. When she is offered a modeling career, she drops everything—even the love of her life—and moves to New York. Though Nathan and Olivia try to steer clear of one another, working for the same fashion magazine causes their paths to cross again and old emotions are awakened.

Can Nathan forgive Olivia or will he take the next step with the woman he is currently dating? Will Olivia do everything she can to break them apart? Or will she choose her career over her heart… again?

What Happened Before Knight Fashion? Find out in SOMETHING GREAT by M. Clarke, now FREE on all online outlets!

She didn't know what she was missing...until he found her. Maxwell Knight was dangerously good-looking, seductively charming, and definitely trouble. He was everything Jeanella Mefferd did NOT need now.
Fresh out of college, life was predictable and comfortable for Jeanella. She had the strength of her friends, the security of her job, and she was dating a reliable man; it was all smooth sailing. That was until one night, when she met someone who made her feel things she'd never felt before--dangerous, heart pounding, breathless heat. Never imagining she would see him again, Jeanella has no idea what to do when fate steps in and thrusts Maxwell Knight into her life, just as things were beginning to change around her. When she lands her dream job and travels to New York for Fashion Week, can she focus on her career instead of on Maxwell? Will she ignore all the danger signs and jump straight into his arms; or would she miss out on the chance of finding something great?

Love can heal and love can make you soar, but Nate’s expression said my love

had broken him. The thought of Nate not knowing how much I wanted him back

shattered me. As his eyes filled with utter confusion, he waited for me to continue.

“Then why didn’t you ask me?” Nate scowled. “What changed your mind? Or

should I say who changed your mind?” He didn’t wait for me to answer. Instead, he

gripped his hair with his fists and walked away.

“It isn’t what you think.” I searched for the best words to explain.

I might have screwed up finding the right words. It was hard to concentrate with

him standing there shirtless, water dripping slowly down his chest from his wet hair.

God, he looked sexy as hell. He had no idea what he was doing to me. I wanted to lick

every single drop. In my mind, my hands traveled all over his toned chest, wiping away

the water like I was his towel.

Nate glared at me, unbelieving, as if he expected me to lie. Then he rushed to me

and punched the wall with an expression of rage I’d never seen. His body so close to

mine, almost touching, caused my focus to slip away.

“Don’t fuck with me, Olie,” he gritted through his teeth. “It isn’t what I think? I

wasn’t given the chance to think.” He pointed to himself. “There wasn’t much to think

when I saw Troy practically on top of you.”

I had known that moment would cause me problems. Nate’s expression eased

when I began to tremble. His anger and how he’d reacted seemed to surprise him, too. I

found my composure again and continued before he had another episode that was so out

of character. There was no going back.

“I couldn’t tell you because of Troy. Not because I wanted to be with him, but

because I was scared of him.”

“What?” His eyebrows pinched at the center, and his pitch rose again. “What do

you mean you were afraid of him? Did he threaten you? Did he hurt you?”

When I nodded through unrelenting tears, Nate guided me to the bed with his

hand on my back. I wiped my cheeks and sat next to him. His proximity drove me insane,

especially when my hand accidently grazed his chest.

“Tell me everything.” he said softly, but it was more of a demand. I could tell his

anger had turned toward Troy and away from me.

Review: Dare to Take by Carly Phillips

She was off limits, 
But he couldn't resist. 

There are just some guys you don't touch--even someone as innocent and inexperienced as Ella Shaw knows that. But when her brother's best friend is up for grabs and willing, she can't resist. After all, she's wanted him for years... 

On leave from the army, Tyler Dare is just looking for a little fun, but his best friend's sister is off limits. Yet unable to deny how sexy and alluring she is, he finds it all too easy to succumb to a night of passion and heat that ends the next morning in the worst way possible. 

Now, Ella is stranded on a tropical island with a hurricane bearing down, and only Tyler can save her. It's his chance to make amends for the past and show the woman he's never forgotten that he's coming after her . . . in more ways than one.

Dare to Take is a quick and enjoyable romantic read. With that said, I didn't fall in love with the characters or the story; this was a case of like over love. I think the story happened too quickly for my liking. I felt like the novel could have been expanded and that would have added the depth and complexity the story and characters needed to be a great read. The characters did not seem to grow or change much within the twelve chapters. It was a well written story, but it was too short for me to really connect with the characters.

Dare to Take is a standalone within a series, but I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read the other books in the series because previous characters make appearances in this one. I did enjoy seeing the different family members interacting and found them all intriguing. The back story was also really interesting. Part of me wants to read this series from the beginning so I can have a deeper connection to all of these characters and get a bigger sense of the Dare family. One of my favorite parts of the story was the way Carly emphasized the importance of family and the closeness of the Dare's. It's easy for the reader see how much they all love and care for one another.

Another thing I didn't particularly care for was the romance. I liked the mystery and suspense that flowed within the book, but for a main character to be more focused on a man instead of worrying about who is targeting her and why is not believable even within the pages of a romance novel. I would have loved to see the mystery aspect of the story play a larger role. But it was nice to see these characters succeed at their second chance of happiness.

Dare to Take is a cute, short romance with mystery/suspense mixed in. Though I wasn't crazy about it, I will definitely try out some of Carly's other novels. I enjoyed her writing and was intrigued by most of the Dare family.

I do think that a lot of people will enjoy this read though. The story is full of romance and has just the right amount of sexy to please romance lovers. I recommend this story to anyone that likes second chance romances with a hint of mystery and spice.

Review: Ladies Man by Katy Evans!

He’s not the guy you date. He’s the one night stand.You’d think this man who sent hot looks my way, who called me succulent, would want to strip me bare and spread me out on his bed like every other woman in Chicago.
Except, he passed on my offer….
Just like I once passed on his.
He’s wary, like I am.
He’s broken, like I am.
And everyone knows two broken parts can’t ever make a whole.
So I try to distract myself with dating.
Tahoe and I are strictly friends. He doesn’t think my new beau is good enough—he doesn't think any man is, especially himself.
The more time Tahoe and I spend together, the more confused I feel.
I'm trying to open up to love.
But I'm quickly realizing that the only man I want is the stubborn, cocky, unattainable playboy Tahoe Roth.
The one my mother warned me about.
The one my body craves.
The only one who will surely break my heart.

Katy Evans is a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Her debut REAL shot to the top of the bestselling lists in 2013 and since then all of her titles have been New York Times bestsellers. Her books have been translated into nearly a dozen languages across the world, with over a million copies sold worldwide.

Katy Evans is one of the best contemporary romance authors out there. All of her stories are wonderfully written, with swoony,  complex characters and interesting story lines. There is something about each of them, some magical spark between the pages that holds an addictive quality.  It's always present when I open one of her books.

Ladies Man is sexy and romantic. The story was engaging and frustrating enough (in a good way, trust me) to have kept me on the edge of my seat. These characters- Gina especially- unfold before the readers eyes; character development at its finest. One of the best things about the story is the pace. It's on the slow side, but it's a slow burn; kindling that is about to catch flame. It allows the story to flow and the relationship to blossom. 

Tahoe is a lot different than Saint was. Loving Saint and Rachel as much as I did, I wondered if Tahoe would come anywhere close to the Manwhore books. But Tahoe is a good kind of different. Enough to make you fall in love and stay hooked throughout the whole novel. He's not your typical romance hero and that's why I liked him.

Katy Evans is definitely an author any romance fan should try out. I have yet to be disappointed by any of her novels. I am looking forward to the next book in the Manwhore series and any other books Katy puts out in the future.
