The Attraction Equation 

My 4* Review:

Fed up with his scheming, matchmaking mama’s antics in trying to find him the love of his life, FBI agent Max Carter decides to take action after Gina Castillo gives him the ideal opportunity to bribe her into being his fake girlfriend, the girlfriend he’d recently told his Mum he had! He really doesn’t want to hurt his mother’s feelings so thinks proving he has a girlfriend will put an end to her antics . . . . As usual, the best laid plans can always have unforeseen consequences!

Take on totally OCD man and put him with someone who lives in organised chaos and there are bound to be some hilarious moments! This is a laugh out loud story, with great chemistry between the lead characters, plenty of hilarious moments, especially those involving T-bone! It is a delightful, festive read, just right for putting you into the festive mood. It is the second in a series but I discovered that you don’t need to have read the earlier book to appreciate this one. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this to anyone who enjoys quirky characters in hilarious scenarios, where they definitely didn’t plan to fall in love but cupid had his own ideas!

I requested and received a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This review is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.

Synopsis

FBI agent Max Carter lives his life by a strict set of rules—rules that don’t allow for distraction, deviation…or a relationship. But tell that to his matchmaking mama. To avoid yet another set-up, he announces he has a girlfriend. And now has to produce said girlfriend at Christmas dinner. Maybe Santa has a suitable actress in that red bag of his…

Gina Castillo is about to break her building’s iron-clad “no pets” policy to give her little brother the perfect Christmas gift—a dog. Too bad Max, the most inconveniently sexy tenant in the building, catches her red handed. Gina expects to be evicted, but instead finds herself blackmailed into playing the role of his girlfriend.

Two lies plus one dog should equal a hot mess of a holiday, but attraction and Christmas magic might just defy the rules…

 Trouble Next Door

My Review:

Just imagine, you’ve been dumped by your boyfriend after discovering you’ve chosen the wrong man yet again. That’s what happened to make-up artist McKenna Prescott. She’s fed up of always doing that so now she’s going to make time to learn more about herself – starting by ordering some sex toys to experiment with! The only problem is she was slightly – okay, very – drunk when she placed the order . . . . and got the apartment number wrong. Now she’s going to have to collect her package from her handsome neighbour and entrepreneur, Beckett Walsh, preferably without him discovering what’s in it!

Beckett is so focussed on his job that his girlfriend has broken their engagement – and her father has withdrawn his financial backing from Beckett’s latest start up venture. He needs the money to make his plans work. When McKenna offers to teach him about women so he woo his fiancée back again in exchange for him helping to get his sister to hire McKenna as her wedding make up artist, it seems he has a good plan . . . . but as he and McKenna work together and get to know each other, deciding on who should be partners is open to conjecture as love intervenes in unexpected ways!

I’ve enjoyed many stories by this talented author and have to add this one to that list! The author brings her characters to life, helping readers empathise with their dilemmas, angst and turmoil and creating a great read that I have no hesitation in highly recommending.

I requested and received a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This review is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.

Synopsis:

McKenna Prescott is the queen of picking the wrong men. When her latest boyfriend dumps her, she decides to devote her time to “exploring herself” (read: drinking wine and ordering sex toys online) and starting her freelance makeup business. That is, until an embarrassing delivery mix-up puts her sexy, gruff neighbor in her path…
 
Beckett Walsh is married to his job…which is a deal-breaker for the woman he’s supposed to be marrying. Even worse, his would-be father-in-law has pulled support from Beckett’s startup and now Beckett stands to lose everything. But the gorgeous, crazy makeup artist from down the hall has an equally crazy but mutually beneficial idea: if he convinces his sister to hire McKenna for her high-society wedding, McKenna will teach him about what women want so he can get his fiancée back.
 
All he has to do is make sure he doesn’t fall for the wrong girl.
