Hating to Love You by Erin Rylie [arc review]

Loving the cover for Hating to Love You
I am proud to say I am friends with this wonderful new writer. Her book was great. If you are a romance lover, give this a go!

*Adult Content*
Blurb:

Rafe Pierce just wants to keep his head down and earn his next promotion. Becoming Houston’s “Hot Cop” is his worst nightmare, and things only get worse when the sexiest reporter he’s ever met starts digging through his past. Sophie Klein has the power to expose a childhood he’d rather keep hidden, so why can’t he stay away from her?



He’s everything Sophie Klein hates: brash, arrogant, and hot as hell. When a chance encounter with a bachelorette party makes Rafe a social-media sensation, Sophie is the lucky reporter chosen to tell his story. She can’t deny the chemistry between them, but is determined to keep her distance. Unfortunately for her, a drunken hookup in a bar supply closet ensures she will be spending at least the next nine months with him…



4.5 Stars! 

Let's talk first about Rafe... swoooooooon! 
I am very glad I call Erin 'my girlfriend', it would be rather odd how badly I swoon over Rafe otherwise. Seriously... Like... I want to get in his pants. Bad. 
The man was pure freaking perfection. Why oh Why man like that don't exist in real life? So unfair.
He did everything right for Sophie. He fought for her and stayed by her side the whole time.

Sophie was a good character too. She had a fun personality, plenty of sass and was super sweet. I rather liked her. I wasn't always on her side, but I understood where she came from. When you've been burnt from past relationships so many times it is hard to trust again. 

The chemistry between the main characters was spot on. Hot and steamy but also heart warming and beautiful. Above all else, they became friends. 

The half start off is because there were times it got a little confusing for a minute or two when the story's perspective changed from Rafe to Sophie and vice versa. Not enough to damage the story in any way though. 
All in all a FABULOUS book.
I don't mince my words, so I confess I was worried I wouldn't like it. How do you tell a friend you didn't like what she wrote right? I am very happy to say I LOVED it and can't wait for the next book.

Oh... yah... let's not forget to talk about that ending. You are mean Erin. That was not fair.

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

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

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
