The Girl Least Likely To Marry

Cassiopeia (Cassie) is pure and simple a scientist. Imagine the tv show The Big Bang Theory she has the attitude of Sheldon and Raj’ s job. She is blunt to the point & lacking on social skills, everything has a scientific reason or so she thinks. The Awesome Foursome as her group of friend are called have been together since college. Cassie has watched them drool over the track team and date guys while kind of looking down on them for letting their hormones control them. That is until she meets Tuck at Reece’s nonwedding where just being around him make a her mind go blank.

Tuck is a ex NFL quarterback who believes he is God’s gift to women, until he meets Cassie who thinks he is a few crayons short of a full box. She doesn’t understand how she can be so attracted to someone so dumb. She can’t get away from his pull on her. Tuck who would usually be very offended finds her funny & arousing. So while Cassie is fighting the attraction Tuck is encouraging it.

Will Cassie figure out love isn’t logical and our hearts sometimes take over or will Tuck show her that life isn’t can’t always be explained by science?

I rate this book 4.5 stars it was comical and refreshing.

Ella is a college student whose life was on track & everything is going great until her parents die in a car crash leaving her with a mountain of debt. She has to put everything up for sale & get a job to save for her next year of college & her rent.

She gets a barely minimum wage job that pays the bills but doesn’t quite cover her food cost. So her friends tell her that she needs a new job & they have the perfect job for her a bartender at a club. She at first doesn’t want the job but changes her mind.

Dace has a bad reputation as a player, never sleeps with the same woman twice and very violent, he is also part owner of the club. Ella unknowingly runs into him in the school parking lot. When she goes for the interview he dismisses her as to innocent. Ella not being put off Gore’s and lays down her circumstances and gets a probation period at the club.

Dace finds her to be refreshing and different since she doesn’t want to sleep with him or change him. He decides they are going to be friends, which shocks everyone because Dace doesn’t have girl friends.

As time goes on their friendship grows but like all relationships if they aren’t building on the truth or trust things will start to crumble. This book has the bad boys, it has mystery, it has romance and it has the classic good girl in it. I loved it! I rate this book with 5 stars!

Olivia is 18 & in her last year of high school and has a minor crush on her math teacher who is 26. Three weeks from the end of school she hooks up with him but makes him wait until is is officially out of school so he won’t get in trouble. So while she is flirting with him an ex boyfriend is stalking her. The night of prom which is also the last night of school for her the ex decides to make his move and take what she won’t give out. After the police take him away she goes with Jamie (teacher) to his house. There she finds out he has more money than anyone thought, including Olivia. Olivia has her own secrets about her background. As things keep going there becomes a threat against Olivia and she has to make some big decisions about her future and her relationships.

This book I believe puts a lot of unnecessary pressure on a girl who is barely old enough to know what she wants. Granted she has a strong supporter that counsels her through some of the stuff she has confided in him. The only other thing I believe could have made the book better was tying up some of the loose ends.

I rate this book a 4.

Living In Sin Blog Tour

Title: Living in Sin

Author: Isabel Lucero

Genre: Erotic Romance

Publication Date: January 1, 2014

Tour Host: Dreams Come True Promotions

**This story contains graphic sexual content and strong language. Intended for mature audiences only.**

Jace Jamison is every woman’s fantasy. He’s a mysterious businessman willing to sweep you off your feet, a tattooed bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and a sexy friend you want to take that next step with. Jace is everything and anything you want him to be. He’s a highly paid escort.

But nobody knows who Jace really is; the man whose dad abandoned him, whose brother was killed, and who had to take care of his mom at a young age. At the age of nineteen, he was living in Sin City, ready for a life away from stress and struggle.

Adrienne has been having a sexual drought since she broke up with her boyfriend. Even then she wasn’t getting fully satisfied. Being an event planner, she’s constantly working at numerous events. Several times she’s seen a man she can only refer to as the God-like creature at her work functions. He’s devastatingly handsome, tall, and has beautiful eyes, but he’s always with a different woman. The last thing she needs is another player in her life.

After a few chance encounters with Jace, her best friend convinces her to just get some good sex out of him and not worry about who she’s seen him with. But what happens when she finds out that he isn’t dating these women because he wants to, but because he’s paid to?

Keeping his job a secret from Adrienne seems easy at first, but when she begins meeting people he knows in his escort life, and they begin getting closer, he knows he has to tell her before someone else does.

When their worlds entwine, and confessions are made, will they be able to work through it? Will she be able to push aside his sins and focus on the good in him? Will Jace get what he’s never had? A woman who wants him despite what he’s done. Or will living in sin cost him what he never knew he wanted?

*An erotic, contemporary romance*

*Book one in a series, but can be read as a standalone.*

Holy hotness and burning panties! I really wasn’t impressed at first I thought it was going to be a Penthouse forum book. You know the ones I’m talking about…sex, tiny story, sex, small character development,  and boom sex. Now don’t get me wrong, there is a time and place for a book like that. I enjoy them. This is a review and so I’ll review it for you. The characters do get fleshed out. The storyline is there. Yes, there are some smoking hot bedroom(or office) scenes. I like some of the conflict that comes into the story. It creates some literary tension that makes you wonder when the whole thing will crash and burn. I give this a solid four star rating. The writing isn’t exactly F. Scott Fitzgerald but hey we can’t all be classic literature. The chemistry is palpable between the two characters and the conflict is relatable.

Isabel Lucero is a military wife who has been lucky enough to travel the world, and see some amazing sights. She has been married to her best friend for ten years, and together they have two of the most beautiful children in the world. She and her husband are Junior High Sweethearts, a couple who are truly meant to be together. One day, their love story might make it into a book.

Isabel is the middle name of the author, and Lucero is her maiden name. Together they create her pen name. She was born in a small town in New Mexico, and was more than happy to move far, far away.

She is a collector of high heels and tattoos, and is highly obsessed with both. She owns a crazy, little Miniature Pinscher who thinks he’s a Doberman. His name is Tyson.

Isabel has always been an avid reader, able to devour books in a day or two. With her now focusing on writing, the reading has slowed, but her love for reading is still there.

Something noteworthy is that Isabel loves to hear from her readers. Never hesitate to get in touch. She’s always willing and ready to talk about anything. If you enjoy this book, she encourages you to not only let her know, but let the world know. Goodreads, Amazon, book blogs, groups, etc. She understands that word of mouth is the best form of promotion.

Introduction
Daisy’s fall

How did this happen to me?  Just months ago I was in a loving, committed relationship with a man who I believed adored me.  Nothing was standing in our way of being married and having the white picket fence, babies and all the happiness I could stand.  Now I sit here on the edge of a bed in a shitty tour bus crying into my hands while a dozen little white sticks lie all over the floor laughing at me proving that I am a total fuck up. 
The diamond on my hand does nothing but make me angry as it glistens, wet with my tears.  I’ve screwed everything up.  I let myself believe for a while that I could have a happy ever after.  I let myself think that I was worthy of something as precious as love.  Instead, I have ruined at least four lives in the ashes of my monumental lapse of rational thinking. 

 
I always think things through.  Daisy Shayne never jumps without looking where she would land.  I had a plan.  I mean literally, I write the shit down and check it off as I complete it.  I was nothing if not meticulous in my calculating of my life this far. 
 
My parents planned nothing.   I watched them constantly bailing water from the boat, borrowing from Peter to pay Paul and getting nowhere in life because of not having a plan.  Well I had a plan damn it!  Now as I look at my list all I want to do is jump from my boat and let myself drown.  It would be so much easier than to face what is coming when those bus doors open and my life comes to an end.  There is no hiding this.  There is no fixing the situation.  It’s going to destroy everyone involved, including myself in the process… 
 
Wait!  I am getting too far ahead of myself.  You need for me to start from the beginning to get the full picture here.  You need to know everything and then you will understand.

Cat Mason is thirty years old and a mother to three children.  She was born and raised in Granite City, Illinois which is just across the Mississippi river from St. Louis, Missouri.  She currently lives in Virginia with her husband and children.  Previously publishing Contemporary Romance under her real name, Amy Cox until she decided to lose the filter and let it all hang out.  When she isn’t writing, she is reading or spending time with her friends and family.
