One Wild Night by Rebecca Shea and A.L. Jackson - 4 stars

I love everything Rebecca Shea writes and this was no different. It is a very short little book but it packed plenty. It was fun to read, fast paced, sweet and sexy... 
If you are looking for a short read one of these nights, definitely give this little beauty a try.
Here is the synopsis guys:
One Wild Night, Rebecca Shea
Kaylee Rose Burton, kindergarten teacher, has never been a believer in fantasies. 

Living in L.A. her entire life, she knows the glitz and glam of Hollywood is just an illusion.

That is until she stumbles head first into the arms of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor. 

It was just another day for Paxton Myles on the red carpet until the blue-eyed beauty literally stumbles at his feet. 

A single glimpse in her innocent eyes and he knows he has to have her. 

After one night of unbridled passion, Kaylee slips away to live her quiet life, but the paparazzi has other ideas.

When Kaylee’s world comes crashing down, can Paxton convince her that their one wild night could turn into forever?

I really liked the main characters. Paxton and Kaylee just fit perfectly together. They may have very different lives but it is obvious they are meant to be more. 
What is not to love about the unlike match of a sweet kindergarten teacher and a Hollywood heart throb anyway? Didn't we all dream of some celebrity or order as teens? and some of us even as an adult? It was sweet and I was rooting for them the whole way. 

Because it is a short book the story happens really fast. One night they don't know each other. The next they have that one night that should never have happened. The next they are trying out a relationship. It was a crazy fast ride and I enjoyed every second of it.

But, you should probably have in mind going in that it is a different story than what Rebecca Shea usually writes, so don't go into it expecting the same intensity, passion and heartache you usually find in her books. This had a more 'billionaire romance' style. Which I love just as much as super emotional books so it worked for me.
My one and only criticism is that because it is so short it should be labeled as a novella, I can't really rate this in good conscience as a full length book. And since I never give novellas 5 stars, 4 it is :) 
Last but not least, apologies for not mentioning AL Jackson on my review. I have read a lot of Shea, not a lot of Jackson, so it is hard  for me to compare this to her previous works.

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po
