Audio Review: How to Survive Your Sisters by Ellie Campbell

A wonderfully warm and witty debut novel about family secrets and sibling rivalry.

The four MacLeod sisters are no strangers to sisterly rivalry and with one of them about to be married, there are bound to be fireworks. Perfectionist Natalie wants the 'wedding of the year'. Harassed mother, Milly, just wishes her bridesmaid's dress wasn't the size of a tent. Career-obsessed Avril secretly moons over a married man and world traveler, Hazel, the youngest, yearns to be taken seriously. Forced together for the first time in years, and with an unexpected guest stirring up old resentments, squabbles are inevitable. But when tragedy strikes things really fly apart - as some shocking skeletons emerge rattling from the crowded MacLeod closet..

My Thoughts:
Siblings. Drama. Family secrets. I loved this story about four very different sisters. Having a couple of sisters myself, I could really relate to the story. Like how sometimes they were the best of friends and other times at each other's throats. Even though there were British phrases that I didn't really understand, there was still a lot to relate to in this story. The story is centered around Natalie as she is planning for her wedding. She becomes a bit of a bridezilla, even being embarrassed by her family. I love the bits of drama thrown in and the secrets here and there that made me want to keep on reading to find out more. I recommend this if you like stories about families and siblings with lots of drama, of if you just love a good story. Lots of humor, too. Just a fun read.

I listened to the audio version. Very well done. The narrator was wonderful and easy to listen to. The British accent is nice, too. A fun, easy listen for the drive to work.

Friends With Multiple Benefits - Release Day Blitz

Friends with Multiple Benefits Summary

When newlyweds Jim and Victoria return from their Vegas wedding, Victoria dives full swing back into her sex therapy practice. With the addition of a new, let's call him, unique client, along with a couple of old surprise visitors, there is never a dull moment in the naughty professional's home office.

While Brian and Jillian are in full expectant parent mode and with twins no less, Jillian's movie opens to great success. Just when the famous author thinks she's gotten Amanda Joseph out of her, and more importantly her husband's hair, the A-list actress returns and in a big way.

With the continuation of Jillian's series of novels heading to the small screen, she's looking forward to the promise of a huge financial windfall, but will the price tag be too much to bear.

Will Jim and Victoria survive her new clients? Will Brian and Jillian have boys or girls or one of each? And will Jillian's movie's box office triumph be the end of her career or her marriage or both. Find out in Friends With Multiple Benefits.

Friends with Benefits Series Description:

Best friends Jillian Grayson and Victoria Wilde could not be more different. Victoria, a young widow who has really gotten on with her life, is wild, carefree, and living life to the fullest while Jillian, recently divorced, is a bestselling romance novelist who is straight-laced, proper, and reserved. That is until Jillian meets Brian Nash, the young, hunky best friend of her college-aged son. These two women provide the vantage point on the hilarious and steamy world of the Friends With Benefits. 

Filled with strong, sexy women and fun-loving, real men, the books are at once playful and very sexy; light but large-hearted. If you love sexy contemporary romance with a healthy dose of fun then this series is for you.

Review: Friends with Full Benefits (Friends with Benefits #2) by Luke Young

For best-selling romance novelist Jillian Grayson, writer's block is a thing of the past now that her clandestine relationship with her son's best friend, Brian Nash, has lifted her out of a post-divorce funk. The prospect of breaking the news to her son seems daunting, but it's nothing compared to the nightmare of meeting Brian's superstrict, off-the-wall, disapproving parents.

After Jillian, Brian and his younger brother Jim, learn an eye-opening secret about the Nash parents they all go scurrying back to Miami where Jillian's best friend Victoria finds Brian's sexy, but innocent college senior brother to be just what the doctor ordered. But when Jim comes on a little too seriously, will Victoria lose interest and return to her life of casual fun or will things get even more complicated?

Friends With Full Benefits is the second book in the Friends With Benefits series. And although the stories are connected, they can be read on their own and book two is a great introduction to the hilarious and complicated world of Jillian and Victoria.

It's an edgy and somewhat raunchy romp filled with humor, sex, romance, passion and surprises. Full Benefits will leave you laughing out loud, slightly worked up and maybe even chasing your spouse or partner around the bedroom...

My Thoughts:
I read the first book a while back and I'm finally getting around to reading the rest.  (WiLoveBooks review of book 1.)  I had forgotten how much I enjoyed it. This one is hysterically funny. I was alternately laughing out loud and rolling my eyes at their antics. Jillian and Brian are settled into their relationship and now their families are finding out. Victoria is hilariously over-the-top. I just love her complete outrageousness.  Just a fun read with crazy plot twists that have me wanting to read the next book right now.

My Rating: ****
Steam Factor: !!!!
Raunchy humor, recreational drug use, language.

Review: Love's Replay by Synithia Williams

David Henderson is willing to do just about anything to stop his father from selling the family’s successful automotive dealership. And that means proving to his pops that he’s serious about his future. Even getting married and having kids is on the table—especially when the love of his life, a woman he hurt through foolish mistakes, walks back in on his brother’s arm. He vows he’ll grab this second chance to make things right.

Sandra Miller didn’t think twice about the opportunity to move to a new city for her career. But the success she needs comes at a high price: she’ll have to partner with David Henderson, the man who said he loved her then crushed her heart. He’s making it clear he wants her back, but is the potential personal pain worth the professional gain?

Neither can ignore the desire simmering between them. But the mistrust and jealousy that tore them apart before is determined to prevent a replay of their love.

My Thoughts:

I loved this. David and Sandra were together in college. He screwed up and then let her walk away. He hasn't been able to forget her. He knows it was his fault,  but when she unexpectedly walks back into his life years later he's not going to let the opportunity pass. I love second chances and this was a good one. You can see that they love each other but they keep making mistakes. Neither wants to get hurt again. You can't help but want to see them together. This was both sweet and plenty steamy. I highly enjoyed this and now I want to read about the other brothers!
