Drifter (Commander in Briefs #3) by Kristy Marie [arc review]

This was my first read by Kristy Marie and it will not be the last. I am already looking into the other books in the series. Drifter was funny, romantic, entertaining, touching... it had all the things needed to make a fabulous contemporary romance. I won't be surprise if this book makes into my favorite list in the end of the year. And since we are still in January, I would say that says a lot about the book hey?!

Drifter, Kristy Marie
Here is the Blurb:
Bianca

Pretty things don’t distract me. In my line of work, a distraction will get you caught. Or in my case, blackmailed. But this isn’t the only time I’ve been hustled, and soon Connor Hayes will learn that men are only pawns in my end game. I don’t love. I hate. Even a pretty boy like him. 

Hayes

Two wrongs don’t make a right. Except when they are five-foot-seven and hotter than my exhaust pipe. So, I blackmailed her. It was either that or turn her in. And if anyone was going to put her in handcuffs, it was going to be me. Bianca Morgan stole the only woman I’ve ever loved. It’s only fair she replace her.

The Review: 5+ Stars

Both main characters were outstanding. 
Bianca may have her demons, but they don't slow her down. She is doing the best she can out of a bad situation and what she does in the end is nothing short of amazing. She is the most noble and loyal thief -yup, you read that right- that I've come across. Specially in romance. 

Hayes has a fun and outgoing personality and a lot of charm. His backstory was heartbreaking and his care and attention for Bianca and her mother were heart melting and swoon worthy. These characteristics are definitely another reason you should believe me when I say the book was amazing: since when do I like nice boys on my books? *insert eye roll here* LOL (disclaimer for the newbies- I married the softest man to ever walk the earth, I need variety. My book boyfriends need to be moody and broody 🤣)

Anywho... the banter between them was at times sexy and flirty, other times sweet. And at all times it showed how perfect they are for each other. They pushed each other to be better people. 

On a somewhat unrelated note- I didn't really like the guy on the cover. HOWEVER, now that I have finished the book that is exactly how I would picture Hayes. Perfect cover model choice!

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
