** Book Review ** BARGAINING FOR THE BILLIONAIRE by J.M. Stewart



Book 3 in author J.M. Stewart’s Seattle Bachelor series brings us another visit to the bachelor auction held every year.  It’s a fun second-chance at love story with a little twist to it.  The characters have some steamy chemistry!  I had a little trouble connecting with Maddie because she seemed a little too unforgiving for my liking, but I enjoyed their story.

Billionaire Grayson Lockwood hasn’t been able to forget the one that got away.  He’s tried to move on with his life in the 3 years since she walked out on him, but no one ever measures up, and he finds himself thinking about her a lot.  He decides that one last ditch effort is required before he can call it done.

Madison O’Riley doesn’t trust easily due to past trauma in her life, so when Gray lied to her, she was quick to cut him out of her life.  She often wonders if she should have heard his side of the story, but what’s done is done.  Right???

Maddie doesn’t get out much, but she lets her friends talk her into a date at the bachelor’s auction, so she’s getting to know the guy with some online chat ahead of time.  Will it all blow up in Gray’s face when she finds out it’s him behind the subterfuge?

** Book Review ** HARD TO HOLD by Katie Rose



A sexy trek into the world of Major League Soccer with Katie Rose!  I really enjoyed this story and the characters, but I didn’t quite feel the passion for the game coming through like I have in the past when reading about her baseball heroes.

New Jersey Hurricanes soccer player Logan Hart is living the good life.  Playing the game he loves, traveling a lot, partying hard and loving lots of women is his standard method of operation. When an ex fling walks up to him at a bar and hands him a baby, he is flabbergasted!  He’s not daddy material!

Isabella Bennett receives the call from nanny company she works for that her services are needed and sets out to whip this single dad into shape!  Her no-nonsense style throws Logan for a loop, but he isn’t willing to rock the boat and have no help, so he agrees to learn.  As this adorable baby and her kind-hearted nanny start to wind themselves around his heart, will he be able to resist them and hold onto that studly reputation of his?
