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.

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

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

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this
