Sexy Jerk by Kim Karr

My best friend is married.
Everyone I know is married. It doesn’t bother me. I like my life the way it is.

Since I’m single though, when my best friend and her husband finally decide to go on their dream honeymoon, she asks me to watch their three-year-old son.

Of course I say yes.

What my best friend neglects to tell me is that I won’t be babysitting alone. 

Feeling Max might be too much for me to handle, her husband asks his only single friend to help. 

Nick Carrington and I have met a couple of dozen times. I’ve never really given him a second thought—other than to say he’s kind of a jerk. Out loud. So he can hear. Sure, he’s tall, dark, and handsome. And yes, he has the best ass I’ve ever seen, and I mean ever seen quite literally. You see he mooned me at last year’s Fourth of July barbecue because, like I said, he’s a jerk.

He always has to be the life of the party.
He’s also arrogant.
Imposing.
Rich.
And a playboy.
I’d even go as far as to say he’s a manwhore.

Yet somehow before I know it, this manwhore and I are co-parenting. Living under the same roof. Eating meals together and yes, talking.

Don’t look at me like that—it’s not like I had a choice. Even though I knew every minute would be hell, I had to say yes.

But after two weeks what I didn’t expect to discover is that I’d been wrong about him. 
That under his smart-ass exterior, he’s quite charming.
That his arrogance is really confidence. 
And that the sight of his naked body would do really bad things to me.

So yes, I’d misjudged him. And yes, I like him. Really like him. Although I might still think he’s a jerk…I now think he’s a sexy jerk.
And I want more of him.

The question is—does he want more of me?

4 Sexy Stars


Let's just start out by saying...how hot is this cover? Ms. Karr is queen of hot cover models for her books and this cover is perfect for Nick Carrington!


Sexy Jerk is a fun, steamy read with witty characters. The chemistry between Nick and Tess is hot and it works! Nick Carrington and Tess Winters have mutual best friends. They've meet over the years and every time, Tess puts Nick in the category of arrogant jerk. But when these two end up babysitting for their best friend's child, perception of each other changes. And sparks fly!


And when sparks fly, oh-boy do they fly. These two not only end up between the sheets, but they end with more feelings for each. But can Tess tame the playboy?


Again, Sexy Jerk is a fun read with low angst, but with plenty of very sexy scenes. I'm looking forward for the other secondary characters to get their own book. And hopefully get more of Tess and Nick's HEA!

Buns (Hudson Valley, #3) by Alice Clayton

Clara Morgan is living the dream, if you can call rebranding hotels that are desperate for a new life and running any kind of marathon a dream. Which she does. But the career she loves and the endurance races that keep her adrenaline pumping have kept her too busy to put down any roots. Growing up in foster care, she’s never been able to establish traditions of her own, which may be why she’s fascinated by the rituals that generations-old family resorts are known for. She’s especially interested in the Bryant Mountain House, and not just for their secret recipe for the yummy, gooey, can’t-get-enough-of Hot Cross Buns….

Archie Bryant, the man with the Buns, is fifth generation and one-day-owner of the charming yet run-down Bryant Mountain House in Bailey Falls, New York. He’s determined to save his family’s legacy from the wrecking ball the old-fashioned way—by gritting his teeth and doing what needs to be done. There’s no way Archie will be influenced by the new hotel branding expert his father brought in to turn one hundred and fifty years of tradition on its head just to attract a faster, younger, slicker crowd. But when some of Clara’s ideas start bringing in new, paying customers, Archie can’t deny that she may have just given him a shot at keeping his resort open.

It’s sticky, it’s messy, it’s sweet, it’s Buns.


Purchase Buns on Amazon!

4 Hot Buns!

I  have to say, Buns, is my favorite read in this series! I loved the banter between the characters. It is fun, sexy and romantic. And it gave me a Dirty Dancing vibe (minus the dancing!) 

Archie Bryant is the owner of Bryant Mountain House in Bailey Falls. This hotel has been in his family for generations, but the stagnate marketing promotions has the hotel hanging by the limb. So in order to get this resort running back on a positive revenue generator, Archie's father hires the sassy Clara Morgan to help revamp the family business.

Clara Morgan is always on the move. She lives her life out of her suitcase, because of her job and when she ends up at the Bryant Mountain House her life will never be the same. That's because she ends up meeting and working for stuffy, old-fashioned and against- change, Archie. These two couldn't be more opposite. 

Even thought Archie is adamant about change, he will do anything to keep his family's manor afloat and that means giving into Clara's ideas.

Buns is a great read that has humorous banter between the characters and plenty of sweet and hot moments. And great end to this series!
