The Sexiest Man Alive by Juliett Rosetti

Title: The Sexiest Man Alive
Author: Juliet Rosetti
Series: Life and Love on The Lam #4
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Loveswept
Pub Date: July 8th, 2014
Pages: 270

Book Summary:

Mazie Maguire doesn’t need some lousy awards panel to tell her what she already knows: Ben Labeck—the chiseled, 6'3" photojournalist and hockey player who drives her wild—is the Sexiest Man Alive. And she especially doesn’t need the rest of the world to know it, too. Watching every last woman in the Milwaukee metro area throw themselves at the man who shares Mazie’s bed is more than any respectable single lady should bear.

So when Ben has the nerve to “forget” to call for a week, Mazie decides to call it off for good. But as she jumps back into the dating game, Mazie catches the attention of some real bad boys: The Skulls. When the motorcycle gang kidnaps Mazie in a case of mistaken identity, she suddenly sees Ben’s behavior in a whole new light. She’d do anything to wake up in Ben’s surprisingly tender arms one more time—so long as the Sexiest Man Alive doesn’t go and get himself killed trying to save her.

Book Review:

A clever, smart, funny romance that is a perfect for a summer read. I really found that Mazie was the kind of heroine that you immediately identify with in a lot of ways. Ben Labeck is a guy who seems to have it all, except the girl he wants the most, Mazie. 

Mazie and Ben are a couple that have different views on things. Ben thinks he is doing a good thing by taking Mazie out on dates, but they are not romantic because he has a coupon, which he thinks makes him frugal. Mazie doesn’t think this is romantic, but rather kind of cheap. I also like that when Ben gets picked to be The Sexiest Man Alive on a news channel, Ben doesn’t like his new found celebrity, neither does Mazie. Mazie fears that Ben’s head is going to grow. Ben is rather not fond of this. This creates a lot of tension between them.

Also Mazie is having a hard time in life. She gets fired from her job because she has a few infractions on her job, plus she saves someone from dying, one of the clients, yet this puts her in a bad mood. Mazie also has a criminal record, because of something that happened in her past. Plus she goes to some of her friends for advice about what she should do. She follows her friend’s advice and it leads to some mighty interesting things.

Plus then one of Mazie’s old friends, Johnny Hoolihan who is now a cop, comes back into her life. He is worried about a young woman named Shayla who has gotten mixed up with some criminals, The Skulls. Lets just say that things happen when the Skulls and Johnny and Mazie are trying to locate the young woman. This is where things get messy. Nothing goes as plan. Everything gets screwed up. Of course, Ben blames Johnny and the two almost come to blows. It shows that Ben really does care about Mazie. Mazie thinks he is being pig-headed. I kind of think that is one of the things that shows Ben cares deeply about this woman.

Then there are some really great moments in the book that I really enjoyed reading. I really like the Roller Derby scenes. I thought that it was great to see Ben taking care of Mazie after the game where she got pretty roughed up by the others. It was rather sweet to see Ben take care of her knee. This scene becomes much more intense in a way as their chemistry just seems to explode. Of course they get interrupted in not a good way.

The last part of this book was so good and unexpected in way. I like when sometimes a character has something so surprising to happen. Yet when Shayla shows up at Mazie’s place, Shayla ends up placing both of their lives in danger. Ben is worried when he shows up and there is blood and furniture thrown all over the place. What happens is Ben has to call on Mazie’s friends to help him find her. Yet he does get the help.

As Ben and Mazie’s friends are trying to rescue them, both Mazie and Ben realize how much they love her and how pigheaded they both have been. I really like these scenes where both Mazie and Ben declare their love for one another. It was such a sweet and tender moment between these two characters. I felt like it both Mazie and Ben’s walls were finally coming down & both were being honest with one another.

UF Book Review: Born in Fire by K.F. Breene

Title: Born in Fire
Author: K.F. Breene
Series: Fire and Ice Trilogy #1
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Publisher: Hazy Dawn Press
Pub Date: July 18, 2017
Pages: 448 
My Copy: Trade Paperback from my TBR pile

Book Summary:

Supernatural Bounty Hunter isn’t the sort of thing you see on LinkedIn. But with a rare type of magic like mine, I don’t have many options. If people found out what I could do—what I am—I would kiss my freedom goodbye.

So dangerous or not, the job is mine. And it was going fine, until an old as sin vampire stole my mark, and with it, my pay day.

Knowing I’m poor and desperate, he has offered me a job. I’ll have to work by his side to help solve a top secret case.

Everyone knows not to trust vampires. Especially a hot elder vampire. But without any other jobs coming up, I’m stuck. As I uncover a web of lies and treachery, revealing an enemy I didn’t know existed, the truth of my identity is threatened. I might make it out alive, only to end up in a gilded cage. 

Book Review:

Regan is a character who definitely is someone who is hiding something. I like that she is someone who is just trying to survive and make her way in the world despite hiding what kind of paranormal she is, in this crazy world that we are entering. 

Regan is a bounty hunter and things go really bad for her. She needs the money of course to live and then vampires get involved. We learn that there are things and people/creatures that are disturbing this reality’s balance and need to be placed back into their rightful home or reality. So when portals open up, it can be very bad. There are also magic users in this world who use magic both for good and bad. We also learn that the agency that Regan works for can assign and take bounties away if they are so inclined and that other groups such as Vampires, Werewolves can take them. 
This unfortunately happens to Regan. The contract that was hers gets taken by vampires and she is royally pissed off to say the least. 

She meets Darius. Darius comes across to her as a know it all type of vampire. He is hot, make no mistake about it. He tries to hit on her, and she doesn’t respond. Regan has a secret and isn’t going to let anyone know what kind of supernatural she is because it would mean that someone could use her for nefarious purposes or send her someplace she doesn’t want to be. We find that Darius and Regan clash in a lot of ways. It starts off the partnership or possible relationship in a way that’s good. Neither of them are pushovers or will let the other get the one up on each other. I also like that we get to meet the head werewolf in charge and he’s a complete douchebag.  So you get to see a lot of things happening.

We also learn that there is a magic user who has been corrupting people and wanted a certain book. This book contains very evil magic and magic that can cause a lot of harm. A lot of people get hurt because of this book. This book is very important to find before it gets into the wrong hands. You never know what kind of hell can be unleashed. Nothing ever goes as planned and all sorts of crazy things happen. 

Crazy twists and turns everywhere in this book. You never know who is going to be the bad guy or woman. I like that this book never played it safe. Also the twist at the end was interesting. At times I felt that this twist was somewhat easy to see coming. I thought that this book was very good. I want to see a little bit more romance in the second book in this series. Love the way it ended and open up a lot of possibilities for our main character.
