FAMED by Magan Vernon:

On the heels of Mary James leaked sex tape - totally a fake one to make her boyfriend jealous she might add- she needs some PR help if she ever wants her acting career to end up in a fiery hell like her love life.

Chris Garcia has been working his way up from mail room clerk to junior associate at Tate & Cane and now to get to the next rung of the corporate ladder he has to take on the firm's toughest client: Mary James.

With a little help from a nosey Aunt Rosita and Mama Garcia, the two decide the best way to move forward is simple: a fake relationship.

But what happens when something fake gets to be too real and FAME gets involved?





One-Night Stand-In - T. Gephart

Sarah Madison loved working at Tate & Cane Enterprises.

While she looked and, for the most part, acted conservatively—she was a gladiator in the boardroom. The fast-paced, energetic work environment not only fed her need for corporate blood but also allowed her to work for one of her role models, Olivia Cane—living proof a woman really can have it all.

And after months of paying her dues, she was finally offered the promotion she’d been vying for. Which was great, except for the fact she had to share the position with a new guy they brought in especially for the role.

Kyle Drake was smart, experienced, and probably just as good, if not better, in negotiations. And if she wasn’t careful, prove he could do the job without her. Add in good-looking and an incredibly sexy smooth talker, and everyone in the office either wanted to be him or sleep with him. Which Sarah could have totally ignored if he hadn’t been the stranger she’d married in Vegas during a fake ceremony six months earlier.

He was supposed to be her one-night stand, a stand-in for a ceremony that wasn’t even legally binding. They were never even going to see each other again. Hell, she apparently hadn’t even known his real last name at the time. It was the only time she’d ever done something completely reckless and spontaneous.

It figured that one time would come back and bite her where it hurt.





THE RUN IN – KELLY ELLIOTT

Becoming the new Marketing Manager at Tate and Cane was a game changer. I was hell bent on proving I deserved this job, and that it wasn’t my cousin Sterling Quinn who had helped me score the new job title. Him being one of the CEO’s best friend—didn’t help the rumors.

Well screw that.

Ten years of sweat and hard work was the reason I was sitting in a large corner office with a killer Manhattan view. More focused than I’d ever been, it was time to take the bull by the horns.

And God help the person who stood in in my way.

********

Things I left behind in Seattle, Washington: A promising career at a top marking firm, the past I was desperate to escape, and obviously my sense of direction. It was because of all of those reasons I was standing in the middle of New York City lost and cursing at my phone.

If I didn’t get to Tate and Cane soon, I wouldn’t only be late, but also blow the chance to make the good impression on my new boss, Mason Quinn. And I needed that more than anything.

One wrong turn, an unfortunate collision, and an expensive suit drenched in my soy chia tea latte was not how I wanted to start my first day.

Then there was the other little problem I had. The drop dead gorgeous man whose suit I’d ruined was my new boss.

And boy did he look pissed.



TIED BY KIM KARR

I was rich, single, and connected, which meant a steady diet of beautiful women wherever I went.

I really did think I had the perfect life.

Until I went and married a supermodel I’d just met, and everything changed.

Of course there were choices. But the word annulment meant giving her up, and I never give up anything. Still, I was a bachelor at heart, and having a wife, well, I didn’t really know what to do with that.

After only forty-eight hours of marriage, I had already gone and screwed everything up.

Now I have thirty days to prove to my new wife that I’m husband material. There’s only one problem—I don’t even know what husband material means. However, I’m certain that won’t stop me from excelling at it.

My wife tells me it isn’t going to be easy. That I have numerous issues to overcome.

First, there’s my jealousy. It needs to be tamed. Did I flip over the fact that her latest picture was causing men around the world to do dirty things all over the covers she graced? Hell, yes. I couldn’t help myself though. When her photo went viral, my caveman instincts kicked in, and I demanded she quit her job and stay home—barefoot and pregnant in my kitchen. I can work on that, right?

Then there’s my mother. I need to convince her that my new wife is not the money hungry floozy she called her. Did my mother actually call her that? Yes. I can’t help it that my mother wants me to get rid of my new wife. The problem is what my mother wants, she always gets one way or another. Still, turning my mother’s opinion around can’t be that hard, can it?

There are many other issues, but according to my new wife, those are minor compared to the biggest one—she says I will never be able to accept being tied down.

Don’t worry—I got this one. I intend to prove to her in no uncertain terms that being tied up, down, or horizontal is just what this Upper East Sider needs.





Battle of the Sexes Adriana Locke

Carver Jones’ partner at Jones + Gallum had to step down for medical reasons. He’s absolutely devastated. He swears. Just ignore his cheeky grin, okay?

When word reaches his fancy corner office that Gallum is replacing himself with his daughter, Amity, Carver is ecstatic.

For real this time.

Jones squashes men in the business industry flat. A woman? Pfst. He’ll be completely in charge in no time, doing whatever he wants. He’s so ready for this.

But is he ready to fight the hardest fight of his life? No, not the one to maintain control of his company. The one to keep control of his heart.

The battle may begin in the boardroom, but the war will definitely be won in the bedroom. May the best sex win.







UNSUPERVISED by Cora Kenborn

Niall

A non-existent love life, unstable paycheck, and a six-year-old who’d rather hit boys than books sound more like a cry for help than a dating profile. On paper, it would seem like I need a life coach, but I’ve managed to get a decent grip on the single-dad thing. My love life, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. With my sexy Irish accent, I should have women of all ages losing their minds, but I seem to attract only a certain type—crazy.

The last thing I want is a new relationship, but I need a date for my company’s charity function. A chance meeting with a tall, leggy blonde who looks like she could use a night out is the perfect solution. Beautiful, sane, and she has a kid? We have a winner.

I didn’t count on Laken being unforgettable. Unlike all the other fake women I’ve met in this city, she’s real. And if there’s one thing I value more than anything, it’s honesty.

Laken

I didn’t bust my ass in college to be a nanny. Unfortunately, a 4.0 GPA and sucking up to the owner’s sister did nothing to secure a coveted Tate & Cane Enterprises internship. I’m not proud of being a nanny-for-hire to get my foot in the door, but my wealthy socialite employer has the ears of company executives. Swallowing my pride, I do what I need to—until an afternoon at the park changes everything.

I don’t mean to let him think Preston is my kid, but he just assumes. This isn’t me. I’m not a liar. Although his panty-melting accent does unspeakable things to me, I should set the record straight. There’s only one problem. Niall is a freelance photographer for Tate & Cane and invites me to a company event as his plus-one. He’s my “in.”

If I can hold on to this charade long enough, I can get the job and the man of my dreams. I’m winging this completely unsupervised. Game on.



TWISTED by Mandi Beck

​Three friends walk into a bar . . . One walks out the fake girlfriend of a hot, bearded Scotsman.

Fannin McGuire is up for promotion at Tate and Cane Enterprises, but first she has to make it through her stepsister’s wedding. To Fannin’s ex. Yep. Her ex-fiancé is about to be her new brother-in-law. One big happy family. And lucky her, she also gets to work with him.

While Fannin is putting all of her energy into her career, her ex is putting all of his energy into making her life hell. Just when Fannin is sure she’ll be attending the wedding without a plus one, in walks Jasper James to save the day. He’s the bartender at the Iron Flask, the account she’s trying to land, and everything she didn’t know she needed or wanted. Before Fannin knows what’s happening, Jasper is playing knight in shining armor and she likes it. And him. A lot. With his smooth Scottish accent, ridiculously good looks, and that beard? She doesn’t stand a chance.

Jasper isn’t in the habit of rescuing anyone. But when Fannin is confronted by her ex about her lack of a date for his upcoming nuptials, Jasper can’t help but step in. Her wild hair, violet eyes, and killer legs have him doing a few things he normally wouldn’t. Never mind that he shouldn’t be getting involved with the woman in charge of making the bar a global success.

Their fake relationship becomes more real than either thought it would. Now they’re at the mercy of their feelings when truths are twisted, and the lies don’t taste as smooth as the whisky.



CHEEKY by Natasha Madison

​​​Bradley Fitch has it all. A suave job, a gigantic trust fund, and an accent that makes panties drop faster than the speed of light. His new life in New York City is fast-paced and furious, but it's nothing a little getaway can't cure.

What says party and unwind like Las Vegas? Nothing. Plus, whatever happens there has to stay there.

When his best friend bails, he finds himself sitting on the plane next to his best friend's sister.

She’s off-limits—proverbial caution tape wrapped around her body. Of course, she’s also totally ball busting gorgeous.

Lexi Quinn fell in love with Bradley at eight years old and then vowed to kill him at eight and a half. What was supposed to be a romantic week away is turning into a nightmare. Her ex is actually married, her luggage is lost, and her reservation is cancelled. And she's sitting next to the man she swore to hate forever

One week. No strings attached. What is the worst that could happen?

It's all fun and games till this British bad boy gives new meaning to BBC and becomes a little bit too cheeky.​​

Title: Battle Of The Sexes
Author: Adrianna Locke








I don't think i can say it often - this batch of Kindle World novellas surprised me. I wasn't expecting to enjoy them as much as i did, especially from authors that I've never read from before. Adriana Locke's Battle Of The Sexes made me laugh more than once when it came to Amity and Carver's back and forth when they reconnected almost ten years later. Both are vying for the same position at their fathers' family business but they each have different views as to the future of the business. Their battles made me laugh, but i absolutely loved seeing them succumb to their feelings for one another. It was the quick read that i needed until i found my next read and i'm more than happy that i did read it since it was entertaining.

Title: Famed
Author: Magan Vernon








Another surprise from the Kindle World novellas, until now i hadn't read nor heard from Magan Vernon. It was a short read that was adorable and made me smile more than once. As i've come to realize after a few books, this set in the Kindle World Imperfect Love revolves around some sort of office romance in major companies and Famed takes place at Tate & Cane between junior associate Chris and actress Mary as they try to clean Mary's PR image after a scandal, hoping to make her ex jealous. I have to admit that i liked this story - it was funny and entertaining from start to finish.

Title: One-Night Stand-In
Author: T. Gephart








With T. Gephart's instalment in the Kindle World series, we're back at Tate & Cane, the company we met in a few other novellas, namely in Magan Vernon's Famed with junior associate Chris and actress Mary. This time we meet Sarah and the man she thought she'd never see again after a 'marriage' - they now have to share a position that Sarah has worked so hard to get, but has to deal with her growing feeling for Kyle. Another short story that made me enjoy more of this series and more than a little curious as to what T. Gephart has to offer, so for sure i'll be looking forward to what she has to offer her readers!







The Run InThe Run In by Kelly Elliott

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Title: The Run-In
Author: Kelly Elliott







While it's the first time that i've read a novel by Kelly Elliott, i'm brought back to Tate & Cane with Saylor and Mason's story. Like the others, it was a quick read that forced me to remember the other books to know who was who as we got to know more about these two. They were captivating and i truly enjoyed watching them try to draw a line between being coworkers, friends and something more. For a novella, it was well developed and was almost disappointed when the book ended. I can't wait to read more from Kelly Elliott in the future, especially after my taste from The Run-In.

Title: Tied
Author: Kim Karr








I haven't had the chance to read any of Kim Karr's books before so i didn't know any of James' or Lindsay's history, so to say that now i'm more than a little intrigued to know more about not only these two characters but as to what Kim Karr has written about them is an understatement. I really enjoyed this story and to watch this couple try to find their place in their relationship AND to get to know one another after a quick wedding. While we're not at Tate & Cane's, there is a link through the family, so i did get a chance to catch up on some of the players i've gotten to know so far.

Cora Kenborn is another unknown author for me and had i not taken a chance on the Kindle World Novellas, I have a feeling she would have remained a mystery to me. Like many of the books from this series, we're brought back to Tate & Cane, only this time, we meet Laken who had always wanted to work at the prestigious company only to be bypassed. She's forced to take a job as a nanny for Niall, the relentless man who wants nothing but to bed the girl who takes care of his girl. I laughed more times than i can remember and enjoyed this story. Hoping that Cora Kenborn's syle for her other novels are similar to this one (which i'll be finding out soon enough), i know i'll be keeping my eyes peeled for this author in the future.

Title: Cheeky
Author: Natasha Madison







Possibly one of my favorites from all of the Kindle World Novellas, taking me out of the Tate & Cane scene, it was the quick read that made me regret not having gotten my hands on this author's previous novels as i laughed like no other, connected with the characters and want to dig into more of this author's books. This story had it all - humor, sexiness, banter aplenty and strong characters that make you forget that it's a novella.

Title: Twisted
Author: Mandi Beck


4 unexpected stars





As part of the Kindle World Love series, i didn't know what to expect. Honestly, i've read novellas part of a series and was almost ambivalent to some of the books. But this one, well, it surprised and impressed me. I wasn't expecting to enjoy all the instalments or want to read more by the authors. Mandi Beck is a new author and her rendition of a fake fiancee to get further into a company was entertaining. I liked this trio, liked their odd friendship and was more entertained with the budding attraction that was growing between Fannin and Jasper. One this is for certain, i'll be looking forward to reading more from Mandi Beck.
