Julie Stanton’s hard work has paid off with her career, but finding the same happiness in the rest of her life is a challenge.

The two friends figure it won’t be a big deal to share a bed for one night—right up until they wake wrapped around each other. They protect their friendship by agreeing that when the vacation’s over, the fling’s over. But Joe discovers Drea might be everything he’s ever wanted. Now all he has to do is convince her that what happens in Buenos Aires doesn’t always have to stay in Buenos Aires.

Review: Queen of Wands by @katee_robert

Queen of Wands
by:  Katee Robert
Genre: SciFi Romanc





Book Synopsis:

When Jenny O’Keirna gets a chance to slip her older brother’s leash, she jumps at it, even if it means playing babysitter to a too-smart-for-his-own-good inventor. She’s not expecting the attraction that sparks between them—or that Sanctify is just as desperate to take him for their own.
Never in Mac Flannery’s wildest dreams did he imagine Jenny would be the one sent for him. He sees beyond the mad grin the sister of Hansarda’s new king presents to the world, and that combination of vulnerability and wicked humor is a siren call he can’t resist.
But Sanctify is always three steps ahead of them. On the run—and unable to keep their hands off each other—Jenny and Mac devise an insane plan: kidnap the leader of Sanctify, and stop this war once and for all. Unfortunately, they’ve just played right into his hands…

Review:

After i reviewed the first novel in this series Queen of Swords (you can find that review here) I jumped at the chance to review the second book in the series.

I'll admit i was a little worried that Jenny's some what manic nature from the first book might become a bit cumbersome when she was the lead instead of the supporting character. But  Ms Robert did a better job than i could have hoped.

Jenny and Mac's chemistry was spot on and i found myself frantically turning pages to find out what happens.

I'm a little scared that this book is the end of this series but i hope not. 

Overall i give it 5 out of 5 LOVED IT

Author Bio:

Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa's knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.

Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way--as it often does--and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she'd like to write a book and try to get published.

Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn't want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?
She now spends her time--when not lost in Far Reach worlds--playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

Spotlight: Keys to Her Heart by @LaceyWolfe


Genre: Contemporary Romance 


Love happens when you least expect it.

Officer Cody Duncan gave up on love years ago. Or so he thought.  He was content with his quiet solitary life, until a clumsy waitress spilled hot coffee on his pants and turned his world upside down. Suddenly, there’s a new heat in his life, filled with cravings for things he once pushed aside.

Lily Jenkins’ busy life as a single mom and primary caretaker for her elderly mother leaves little time for herself. Struggling to adjust to a new life in a small town, her focus is too easily derailed by the gorgeous man she accidentally spilled hot coffee on. Knowing she has too much already going on, Lily vows to keep Cody at a distance, even though she craves him in ways she never thought possible.
Their attempts at simple friendship continually fail as they soon discover an untamable fire between them whenever they are alone together.


Seeing a life he never imagined for himself, will Cody have the patience to wait for the woman of his dreams? Will Lily finally let go and give Cody the Keys to Her Heart?



~Excerpt~


As they walked back up the main road in town, Cody couldn’t shake the feeling Lily was holding back on him. From the outside, she seemed to have her life together. She was strong and confident, but something told him there was a story she wasn’t sharing. He wouldn’t push. If, and when, she was ready, he’d listen. He didn’t plan on going anywhere.

God, was he already thinking about the long haul with her? He was in trouble, and he hadn’t even kissed her yet. He’d definitely thought about it, though.

“You’ve been such a gentleman showing me around.” She tugged at the hem of her dress. Her hot, sexy, want-to-rip-it-off-her dress.

“Who better than me?” he flirted.

“I can’t think of anyone.” She stared at him. Her long red curls begged him to touch them. Were they as soft as they looked?

“We should do this again.” His heart raced as he waited for her response.

“Yes.” She stepped back a little, increasing the space between them. “My evening schedule is kind of hectic. So daytime is best for me.”

“I understand. You have your son to care for.”

Her gaze darted away and she sucked in her bottom lip. “Yeah. Speaking of which, he’ll be home before long, and I should be there to get him off the bus.”

He hated that their time together was ending. “Okay. Let me walk you to your car.”

“You don’t have to.”

“I want to.”

She gave him the cute little grin he found himself adoring already. Of course, she’d parked near Luigi’s, which had them to her car too quickly.

Lily leaned against the side and he could practically see the wheels turning in her head. Was she debating the kiss as much as he was? Oh yeah, he wanted to explore those sweet lips of hers, but not yet. Not until he could spend a good few minutes with her.

Review:

Firstly this entire series is amazing not one of the five books is less than a 5 star. 5 fabulous Authors and five amazing books. Well Done Diane Alberts, Tessa Bailey, Katee Robert, Samanthe Beck and Laura Kaye.

Now for the reviews of the individual books

Falling for the Groomsmen by Diane Alberts
This is a great childhood crush to life long forever  story. Tyler has a lot to make up for and Christine doesn't let him off too easy but he is more than willing to put in the hard work. 
Plenty of sexy chemistry makes this a wonderful read. 

Baiting the Maid of Honor by Tessa Bailey
This is a wonderful sexy tale of two total opposites who are far more perfect for each other than either suspects.  I loved the interaction between Reed and Julie some say arguing is the best form of foreplay and these two have the art down to a t. 

Seducing the Bridesmaid by Katee Robert 
This book proves that even the best laid plans go awry and when they do you might just find your happy ever after. Brock lives a challenge and Regan certainly provides one.  There was one little continuity error in this book but unless you read the books back to back like I did you probably wouldn't notice.  Definitely a fun sexy read. 

Best Man with Benefits by Samanthe Beck
If I had to pick a favourite of the entire series this one would be it.  Shy girl with hidden bombshell catches the attention of the sexy work obsessed best man whats not to love.

Cover Reveal: Stealing Serenity by Tami Veldura

Stealing Serenity
Tami Veldura



Bottom Drawer is proud to announce the release of Stealing Serenity by Tami Veldura. This is Tami’s first book released with BDP and we are very happy to have her with us.



Book Details: Novella
Genre: Romantic MM Suspense
Author: Tami Veldura
Summary

“Serenity,” a photograph worth four million dollars, was sold at auction to an anonymous bidder, and stealing it will represent the largest payday Daniel will have ever had. To make that happen, he poses as a photography curator to attract the attention of Kearin, the auction house owner.

Kearin takes Daniel under his wing to work in the non-profit branch of his business, but it’s a cover for his desire to see Daniel naked, bound, and needy for the camera. Kearin has a client interested in a very specific portfolio—filling the request would put him at the top of his field.

Daniel thinks he can use the modeling to get closer to “Serenity.” What he doesn't expect is to fall for Kearin's brand of intensity instead. So does he go for the photograph or Kearin's heart? He wouldn't call himself a master thief if he couldn't steal both.


The e-book will be available for sale on July 5, 2014 on our website and online booksellers
