Chance to win a copy of Once Tasted by Laura Moore

Everything has come easily to Reid Knowles, the middle son of a California ranching family. But his charmed life is suddenly complicated when his good friend and neighbor asks him to help run the winery next door. His neighbor’s niece, Mia Bodell, is in charge—and she has made it clear that she’d rather be roped to a steer than to Reid Knowles. Never one to back down from a challenge, Reid vows to win her trust.   Her life marked by loss, Mia knows that nothing comes easily—love included. In high school, her heart was crushed by Reid, and even though years have passed, the hurt lingers. Mia is achingly aware that the teen heartthrob has matured into a devastatingly handsome playboy, and the budding winemaker refuses to let down her guard. But one taste of unbridled passion changes things. From Reid’s first intoxicating kiss to his unexpectedly tender seduction, Mia is swept into a passionate affair that could tear her heart to pieces . . . or give her everything she has ever wanted.

Once Tasted by Laura Moore

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received an ARC for an honest review….and honestly, I could not put it down. I’ve had a crush on Reid since we met him in Once Tempted.

Laura Moore’s stories reach deep down into my heart and pull me along till the end. Mia was such a perfect heroine for Reid. I loved her vulnerability and strength as well as her doubts and fears. I was sucked in from the start. Between the winery and ranch I yearn to visit this quaint place. Her vivid story telling allows her readers to walk through the vines and smell the grapes. I’m thrilled for the early chance to read this.

I’m so looking forward to the next Silver Creek book. If you love contemporary romance…Laura Moore is a MUST read!!!!

So…Leave a comment for a chance to win a copy of this FABULOUS READ.   Tell me…have you ever read Laura Moore, if you have…what’s your FAVE, if you have not…BEGIN with bk1 Once Tempted.   Two Winners will be picked Friday morning!

HAPPY RELEASE DAY!!!!

I was lucky to receive an ARC of this book for an honest review. AND I must say…it was AWESOME!!!!

This story was a novella introducing her new series, the Call Girls.  There will be 3 books following.  From the very start I was glued, fast paced, fun, sexy and as usual…hysterical.  Dakota Cassidy packed a wallop in this story and wet my whistle to dive into the next book.

In her sexy new series, bestselling author Dakota Cassidy introduces the Call Girls, a spirited group of friends ready to take on lust, love and everything in between…. Find out where it all began in this delicious novella!

If life is like a box of chocolates, Cat Butler has tasted them all—and decided on none. It’s no wonder she can’t keep a job, even though her mother’s health depends on it. Just when she finds herself up a creek without a paddle—again—a benevolent friend throws her a lifeline. In the form of a job at, of all places, a phone sex hotline. Not exactly what she had in mind, but if it pays the bills for her mom’s expensive nursing home, what’s the harm?

Successful entrepreneur Flynn McGrady knows a thing or two about responsibility. So when his mother has a stroke, he knows the right thing to do is relocate to Atlanta to be near her while she recovers. He’s got a plan for everything—except for feisty Cat, who finally gets his mama to talk again. Talk dirty, that is, and he’s not pleased. Cat is gorgeous and sassy to boot…too bad she’s not the type to settle down.

Cat and Flynn may have bigger fish to fry, but the sparks between them are hotter than hell. And when they finally give in to temptation, the results are explosive. Can a girl who follows her heart and a guy who follows his head find their way to forever?

 

This was my little review on GR…I’m so looking forward to the next book. What a fresh, fun concept. Cat was feisty and made me laugh, and Flynn…hawt damn!!! Landon was a fairy godfather and perfection all rolled into one. I loved his character. Again I will say GREAT concept, I devoured this in a blink of an eye.

I always worry about writing reviews for fear of spoilers. If you enjoy contemporary romance, laughter and sexy time. Put this on your TBR!!!!

Dakota Cassidy has such a way with her writing. She makes me laugh and the sexy bits….booyah!
Must read!!!

In honor of Dakota’s new release today….Bitch is giving away 5 copies!!!!  Leave a comment for a chance to win.  We will pick winners Thursday morning…so let the fun begin!!!

 

HAPPY TUESDAY!!!
