I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting (Shacking up #3) - 4 Stars [arc review]

I Flipping Love You
I Love Helena Hunting! I read Clipped Wings by her last year and got hooked. I flipping Love You has all of her usual trademarks: sweet romance, drama, sexy scenes...
I have to sadly confess though that I am very behind on her books. For example, I haven't read the other books in this series. Embarrassing I know... I am telling you this so you know that I Flipping Love You worked great as a stand alone, so if you like the blurb give it a go regardless if you have or not read the previous books. You can always go back and read the other ones later (I know I will).

Blurb:
Rian Sutter grew up with the finer things in life. Spending summers in The Hamptons was a normal occurrence for her until her parents lost everything years ago. Now Rian and her sister are getting their life, and finances, back on track through real estate. Not only do they buy and sell houses to the rich and famous, but they finally have the capital to flip their very own beachfront property. But when she inadvertently catches the attention of a sexy stranger who snaps up every house from under her, all bets are off…

Pierce Whitfield doesn’t normally demo kitchens, install dry wall, or tear apart a beautiful woman’s dreams. He’s just a down-on-his-luck lawyer who needed a break from the city and agreed to help his brother work on a few homes in the Hamptons. When he first meets Rian, the attraction is undeniable. But when they start competing for the same pieces of prime real estate, the early sparks turn into full-blown fireworks. Can these passionate rivals turn up the heat on their budding romance — without burning down the house?

I FLIPPING LOVE YOU, set in the Shacking Up world, follows two people, both working in real estate, who find themselves vying for the same properties in the Hamptons, leading to a sometimes-not-so-friendly competition.
 

Let's start by saying that this was a cute and sweet read. Some of Helena Hunting's books are intense, some have a heavy dosage of kink... This was one was light and sweet. 
Pierce and Rian meet by accident. Literally. Rian's twin sister hits his car and does a 'hit and run' on him. When he first sees Rian he thinks she is the one who did it. There is chemistry between them right from the start and it was fun reading their banter.

Pierce was a sweetheart from beginning to end. I wanted to jump into the book and give the guy a hug. He was a very down to earth mature guy that knew exactly what he wants in life and is trying to make it happen.

The book loses a point because of Rian. Her character was a tad daft and annoying at times. Specially towards the end... but I suppose you will all have to read it and figure it out for yourselves. It is certainly worth it. As all her books are 💗

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching

The Prince of Broadway (Uptown Girls #2) by Joanna Shupe

Another masterpiece by Jonna Shupe! I loved every second of this book and I am already a third into the next book in the Uptown Girls  series. The Greene sisters are a hoot and the man they fall for can do nothing but be at their mercy.  Blurb: In the second novel in Joanna Shupe's the Uptown Girl series, a ruthless casino owner bent on revenge finds his plans upended by a beautiful woman who proves to be more determined than he is—and too irresistible to deny. Powerful casino owner. Ruthless mastermind. Destroyer of men. He lives in the shadows... As the owner of the city's most exclusive casino, Clayton Madden holds the fortunes of prominent families in the palms of his hands every night. There is one particular family he burns to ruin, however, one that has escaped his grasp... until now. She is society's darling... Florence Greene is no one's fool. She knows Clayton Madden is using her to ruin her prestigious family... and she's using him right back. She plans t
