Straight No Chaser (Chaser – Bad Habits Book #2)

Chaser (Bad Habits Book 2) by Staci Hart

So we all loved West and Lily (Hipster and Ballerina Love Story) from “With a Twist” well ladies and gent-…more ladies, here is book 2 from the stellar Bad Habits Series. Cooper Moore (Billionaire Playboy) and Maggie Williams (West’s jilted baby sister) come together in a story of epic-ally hot and adorable proportions.

512Cpn+gsnL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_Official Description:

Everyone knows you should never say never.

Cooper Moore never saw Maggie Williams coming. She was just his best friend’s little sister, the curly-haired, freckle-faced girl from Mississippi who was absolutely off limits. And he never thought about her any other way — not until he saw her that night, broken and brave. From that moment on, he knew he’d do whatever it took to protect her, even if it meant he had to stay away.

Maggie never expected to find her fiancé banging her maid of honor an hour before she was set to walk down the aisle, but life’s funny that way. The only option to save her sanity is to get the hell out of Jackson and move to New York where her brother lives. The only downside: Cooper is there too. And she just doesn’t know if she can stay away from him — the filthy rich, dead sexy playboy who’s allergic to commitment.

The second Maggie sees him again, she realizes he’ll be impossible to resist. Luckily, commitment is the last thing on her mind, and Cooper is the perfect escape. As long as she can keep her heart in check, everything will be just fine. Because she can never have feelings for him. Or at least that’s what she’ll keep telling herself.

Classy Broad Description: Honestly, this back cover doesn’t do the book justice. Chaser picks up in the middle of the story of Cooper and Maggie. Maggie as we know find her soon to be husband balls deep in her maid of honor the day of her wedding while Cooper is a forever bachelor who “dates” Lily’s sister Astrid. Maggie finds herself in need of comfort and some sexual healing that she finds in the debonair Cooper, the night of her would be wedding and again when she flees to New York. While strict guild lines are in place for their “arrangement” (1 month, no dates, no feelings), as the 1 month deadline lingers closer and closer Cooper is torn between his friendship with West (who has forbid him from seeing Maggie) and his growing love for his golden haired Southern Belle. Maggie herself is torn between two versions of herself. She’s unable to trust her instinct since she found out the boy she loved for 7 years had been screwing the entire State and no one told her. She’s leering of men and herself, keeping her feelings for Cooper on tight lock down until she hits a breaking point. At the risk of giving away a great journey, I’ll stop here and let you all enjoy the ride yourselves.

I really loved West and Lily’s story which is why I am amazed to say that I loved Cooper and Maggie much much more and I expect to love Rose and Patrick more than that. I love a series that continuously one-up’s itself and so far Bad Habits has done that! Cooper is such an adorable character, what I loved most about him was that he didn’t fall into the typical “Billionaire Playboy” archetype where he weeps and moans and denies his feelings. Cooper mans-up to his love for Maggie and is driven to make her see that whatever she needs to figure out, he will be there 100%. For those of you who read With a Twist (give me a comment!), the story provides a bit more insight into Astrid and her relationship with Coop which was much needed. I can’t wait for Rose and Patrick’s story, I have a feeling it will be much darker than anticipated.

Steam Rating: A+ , much hotter than Lily and West’s story, damn can this girl right a sexy scene!

Virgin Football Players and Why I Love JJ Watt…

Sacked (Gridiron #1) by Jen Frederick

In honor of football season and my beloved Jets having a winning record so far, I bring you SACKED, you’re welcome. No really, you’re welcome, Classy Broads meet Knox, your new favorite book boyfriend, the sexy, quarterback tackling wait for….VIRGIN. Yes, you read that correctly, a Sexy Hero who is not a man-whore and just wants to be loved and love in return and it’s 25904855refreshing as hell!

Now before you come after me with pitchforks yelling that you love the reformed bad boy plot device allow me to say this, I DO TOO. Yes, I love it, we’ve all read my blog, we know I love a good bad-boy story,let’s face it nothing says “love” in romance novels like changing your entire outlook on life. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, hear me out regarding Know our love-able virgin since he says swoon-worthy things like…

“When you meet the girl who’ll be sitting on the front porch holding your hand when you’re eighty, you don’t let a thing like cool dismissive looks, big brothers, or fucking rules stand in your way.”

Knox Masters is an All- American college football player on the verge of being drafted into the NFL. He’s sole focus on being the best football player, along with a healthy does of mistrust in the opposite sex has lead him to keep his virginity safe guarded. That is until he meets Elle Campbell, the younger sister of his new teammate Jack. Jack and Elle are inseparable, a bond only strengthen by the shitty parents they have. Elle and Jack have their own issues that drives the plot and throws some road blocks for our Hero. The story itself is football heavy which I loved, similar to Kristen Proby’s With Me In Seattle series. The ending is just as sweet as the man himself, however I felt it was a bit overkill. I’m willing to overlook it because of the author’s vivid descriptions of Knox’s muscled physique. The sx scenes are HOT and STEAMY, extra points for creativity and descriptions.

Now, because I love you all and wish to give you some eye candy this afternoon, I give you my version of Knox. God knows I am a die-hard, New York Jets fan but man do I love JJ Watt and his abs. Also, I feel that JJ is just a nice guy in real like, much like how Knox would be if he wasn’t fiction. 920x920 Absolutely recommending this for anyone who loves sport romance, especially Campus reads. While the sex is hot, steamy and muscled, it isn’t the entire focus of the novel. One thing I hate is the 6 page sex scene every 12 pages, this is not that.

If you’ve read it I’d love to hear your thoughts, if you haven’t I’d love to talk further!

Happy Reading Classy Broads!

Hipster Ballerina Love

With A Twist by Staci Hart 

The books Gods were kind to me during the month of August, and have promptly ripped the rug out from under me in September. I am 4 books into my post Labor Day world and I have despised every last one of them. Alas, I have decided to share one of my finds during August that I truly adored.

51cC6KFJMiL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_

Here’s With A Twist: West and Lily have been friends since they moved into the same building years ago. Lily is a dedicated ballerina in the New York Ballet while West is a bearded graduate student studying Shakespeare (read: I would not like him in real life). Their friendship is easy, each in their own respective string-less relationships until West realizes that he cannot live without Lily. While West is figuring out his undying love, Lily is discovering that her longtime boy-ballerina crush is not all he cracks up to be.

Why I Loved It? Okay, I’m the first person to push annoying hipsters out of my way when rushing for the morning train but I have to say I genuinely liked our bearded hero. West is a lovable lumberjack from the South masquerading as an uppity hipster in NYC and somehow it make his flannel and man bun much more redeeming. I do have to say that Lily annoyed me in the beginning but I couldn’t blame the girl, every girl should have the opportunity to see if a longtime crush is worth it (hell, I’m marrying mine!). The book itself is a really honest story of what happens when two friends fall in love and try not to loose what they have. Its heartfelt and sweet and sets up what hopes to be a fun journey for the 2 remaining couples in the group.

Steam Rating: Solid B, nothing too crazy thought I LOVED the hilarious sex scenes between Lily and her dip shit hook up, I truly felt bad for the girl, two pump chumps are nothing to swoon over. Don’t worry Classy Broads, West more than makes up for it!

The Hilarity of Fashion Bloggers

The Allure of Julian Lefray

Well, I have to say that this is the funniest romance book I’ve read in a while! I loved every page,nay every syllable of “The Allure of Julian Lefray” by R.S. Grey. I wish the book was 100 pages longer just so I could have MORE of Julian and Jo.

51VS1UQzwCL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_So Here’s The Deal: Jo (Josephine) Keller is a fresh off the bus from Texas fashion blogger living in New York and trying to make a name for herself. Julian Lefray is in town to take over his sisters fashion company Lorena Lefray Designs while she is “ill” (read: in rehab). Julian ultimately hires Jo as his assistant in getting things back on track and revamping his sister’s company. They quickly form a close bond and become the best of friends while sexual tension hangs between them.

Why I Love It? Simply put, its hilarious and heart-warming. Perhaps I’m bias because it’s how I started a relationship with my future husband, but I love a romance novel that starts out with friendship. Sure we all love the disarming charm of Christian Grey and his “get on the bed, i have to have you” direction 5 minutes after meeting Anastasia but I like a hero who can’t quite figure out how to get the girl. Julian is charming and sexy sure but he has no idea how to attain what he desires most, Jo. The repartee between Jo and Julian (isn’t that cute?) is quick-witted, hilarious and all together endearing.

Steam Rating:  B- , not as sexually heavy as most contemporary adult romance but certainly not lacking when it came up (pun intended). 

Classy Broad Recommendation: If you still run to bookstores (or Costco), pick it up immediately! If you have finally embraced the modern world they I hope you have a speedy internet connection and Amazon’s one-click purchase turned on. Pick it up today, you won’t regret it.

Pimps and Hookers and Fighters….Oh My!

Fight for Flight by JB Salsbury

Here’s the deal Classy Broads!

41jZnD-GLnL._SX318_BO1,204,203,200_ Raven Morretti: The grease-monkey daughter of notorious Las Vegas PIMP and Drug Runner Dominick Morretti and his go-to lady of the evening Milena. Raven has been brought into the world for one reason and one reason only, to work for her father in the family “buisness” (read: hooking).

Jonah Slade: MMA bad boy and hothead who loves getting his dick wet. Poor tortured Jonah loves cars, his Mommy and punching things. Jonah will do everything in his power to save Raven from her father.

Review: I have to say, I read a lot of romance novels and never have two characters fallen in love so quick! 2 weeks in and they’re picking out china patterns. That being said it really is a great story. Virginal Raven and Play Boy Jonah make an adorable couple. It’s always nice to have female characters who are into typically “male” hobbies like Raven (she’s a total gear head). My only issue is with her complete and utter mental breakdowns that happen a half dozen times. Shes in tears half the book, you’d expect the girl to have thicker skin. Either way, the story, steam and climax (wink wink nudge nudge) are all work reading. I have t o say I absolutely HATE her best friend, which makes me want to skip whatever book she appears in. Looking forward to reading Blake’s story in Book 2.

Verdict: Sexy MMA Fights + Virginal Gear Head with Abandoment issues = great beach read.

Sweet Ache (Driven Book 4) by K.Bromberg

Let me just say, I love K. Bromberg, if it wasn’t creepy I would build a statue for the woman. Her Driven Series is top notch, sexy, sweet and has great twists and turns, she never disappoints. Sweet Ache is the forth installment, featuring Quinlan and Hawkin. Quinlan has been a minor character, sister to the sinfully sexy Indy racer Colton Donovan. Hawkin is a brand new character complete with an evil twin, soulfully sexy voice and mommy issues.

22472103

Here’s The Deal: 

Hawkin Play, the bad boy rock star with a heart of gold has been covering his evil twin’s mistakes his entire life. The latest drug charge could land Hunter in prision, lucky for him, lead singer of Bent and bro Hawkin takes the fault. In a quest for leniency from  the judge, Hawkin must teach a course on Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll at USC. Enter Quinlan…

Quinlan Westin, beautiful film student working as a TA in order to earn her Master’s degree is quickly the pain of Hawkin’s existence. Harder to bed than he imagined, she quickly becomes the object of a bet between the band members. What Hawkin doesn’t expect is falling in love, and the deeper he falls the harder it is to keep his secrets and pain to himself.

Steam: A++ Like I said, K.Bromberg know how to write, the woman woulnd’t get a statue of nothing! Sexy Hawkin will leave you panting while Quinlan is not his typical groupie. She’s feisty, fierce and ready for some fun.

Review: The book made me laugh, cry and everything in between. Any plot that features and actual evil twin and not make it cheesy and cliche is alright by me. Hawkin’s tale will seriously break you heart, he comes from shitty parents and deals with the very real struggle of idols falling and how to cope. Quin becomes the voice of reason in his hectic and fame hungry life. The book is race paced, in your face and never misses a beat.

I recommend picking up the first 3 in the Driven Series, all equally delicious and heartfelt. (Slow Burn is still my favorite!) 

Classy Broad Approved Goodness

Hockey Hunks and The Stanley Cup

In the spirit of Hockey season and the upcoming Stanley Cup allow me to introduce Book One of The Off- Campus Series by Elle Kennedy to those of you how don’t know it.

Book 1: The Deal

24504048

Here’s The Deal: This is a slow-burn, college-set sports romance. Hardworking college student/ singer/ waitress Hannah Wells has finally found someone she’s interested in getting to know…in the biblical sense. The only problem is, she feels completely out of his league. After meeting cocky, sexy, hockey playing bad boy Garrett Graham, who needs help in Philosophy she begins to form an idea…tutoring in exchange for making this guy jealous. After a steamy kiss that leads to mind-blowing sexy, Garrett becomes a more than willing participant in Hannah’s games, that is until he realizes he’s rather keep her for himself…the only problem is convincing her of that.

Setting: Briar College, home of the the hot and sexy Garrett Graham and quiet yet hilarious Hannah Wells.

Sports Action: I’m personally a fan of the sport romance that actually features well, SPORTS! This is no exception, it’s got a nice balance of sports and romance, you won’t be left feeling unsure of what sport it’s actually about.

Hero: Garrett is son of a hockey legend determined to make it on his own with his own merits and talents, admirable. The swoon worth hero will have you laughing, crying and sighing in that Disney princess way with doe eyes singing “awwww”. Despite his upbringing, which will thoroughly break you heart for our sensitive Hero, he’s determined to be his own man. I commend him, without spoiling a great piece of character development, he never really struggles with wrong and right, he simple knows it and is never convinced he’ll end up like his father.

But the real story is with Hannah….spoilers below….Read More »
