Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige
Genre: Contemporary Romance
From NYT Bestselling author Laurelin Paige, discover a whole new world filled with sex, love, power, romance and dirty, filthy rich men.
When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.
I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn't stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.
And then what it was like to lose it.
Ten years later, I’ve found my way back. Back to their world. Back to him.
This time, I’m ready. I've been down this road before, and I know all the dirty, filthy ways Donovan will try and wreck me.
But it’s hard to resist. Especially when I know how much I’ll like it.
After she was gone, I walked over to the windows and drank in the scene. The Town Center was high enough that it had an unblocked view of downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn, and beyond.
Giddiness surged through me, starting like a pinprick at my center and moving out through my veins in all directions until even my fingers and toes felt warm.
I was really here.
I made it.
It wasn’t the way I thought it would be, but in the end, it still came out of my time at Harvard. I’d always known that connections made the difference in a career, and here I was. Finally. At the top of the world, looking out.
I couldn’t stop grinning.
“It’s incredible, isn’t it?” a male voice came from behind me.
Still smiling, I glanced up and caught his reflection in the window.
And everything disappeared.
The world that had buzzed below, the beautiful scene, the excitement that had unfurled through my body—all of it evaporated and all that existed in its place was a pale, hollow shell of myself and the man in the perfectly tailored suit behind me.
I turned to look at him directly. Our gazes smashed together, and my legs nearly fell out from under me.
“Donovan,” I rasped. It was a miracle that I managed to find enough voice to say that much.
And there was so much more that had to be said. So much more that I hadn’t prepared for. Which was ridiculous since I’d talked to him so many times in my head over the years, practiced so many conversations, but never did he show up out of the blue looking so dastardly handsome in a dark gray three-piece suit, his face rugged with scruff, his eyes hazel and earnest despite the playful smirk on his lips.
I opened my mouth to say something, but nothing came out. I wasn’t even sure how to breathe anymore.
He broke our gaze to nod out the window at the skyline, walking toward me as he said, “I’m sure you found the Empire.”
Though his focus was now on the scenery, I didn’t take my eyes off him as he approached. He didn’t stop until he was right beside me. So close our shoulders would touch if I coughed. Tension ran off him like foam spilling over from a mug of beer. Good tension. Bad tension. I wasn’t sure if there was a difference when it came to Donovan.
Which was why I was screwed if he was here.
Why the hell was he here?
“I thought you were in Tokyo.” I couldn’t stop staring at him. He’d gotten more refined with age, and rougher at the same time. His hair was short and his curls gone, giving him a polished look he lacked before. The lines by his eyes were more defined and his expression seemed harder than I’d remembered. It made him sexier.
As if he was a man who needed to be sexier than the one I knew.
“I came back two months ago,” he said offhandedly. “That’s it right there.” He leaned his face in close to mine as he pointed to the famous structure. “Do you see it?”
Fuck if I cared about the Empire. I was in Donovan Kincaid’s orbit. What else was there in the world?

Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender.

I’ll be honest with you—I’m no hero.
Sure, the media tries to brand every Navy SEAL as some kind of Batman dressed in cammies. There’s even a line in one of our cadences: Superman is the man of steel, he ain’t no match for Navy SEAL. You’ve seen the movies—we’re infallible, invaluable, invincible. But that night, the one you read about in the papers … all I really wanted to do was get laid.
One harmless fuck with an Aruban whore, no strings attached. I picked her out of a lineup—wild, dark hair, long legs and a crooked smile. After she sucked me off, I relaxed back onto the creaky, cum-stained cot, thankful for the blissful moments she gave me when I actually forgot for a second the faces of my buddies who died because I made the wrong call, the tears of the children I couldn’t save, and the eyes of the enemies I slaughtered during their last seconds of life. But before I left, her hazel eyes peered into my soul. She whispered in a distinct Californian accent, “My name is Annie Hamilton. I’m an American citizen. I was kidnapped on spring break five years ago. You’re my last hope. Please save me.”
One desperate plea. This wasn’t a Hollywood blockbuster or a New York Times best-selling thriller. I knew this time there was no room for excuses, no margin for errors.
I had one chance to put on the cape and be her hero.

Jennifer Lopez film "Maid in Manhattan."

Review: The Amateurs - Book #1 The Amateurs Series - Sara Shepard - October 2016
As a big fan of Sara Shepard's different series, when I
read that she had released a new book and the beginning of a new series - I
knew I had to read it, and I waited and
waited till I could get my hand on a copy. I have to admit, though, that after reading this book I was a tad
disappointed as it didn't compare high on my list to her other three series. In
The Amateurs, Aerin Kelly's sister Helena
disappeared five years ago, and then her
body was found one year later. The case has remained unsolved, and as the years went by, there were no extra clues
found. There is a website that people can post on about unsolved murders
and fans can comment with advice and possibly tips.
When Aerin posts a comment requesting help on her sister's case, she never
expected three strangers to reply and not ones her age or near about. When the team gets together, clues start to fall in place, but over time it seems that one of the members of the group
doesn't belong and Helena's general description matches other murder victims?Are
this part of the foul play and a bigger
picture or was the murder of Helena just a coincidence as Aerin and the team
uncover Helena's final moments and the secrets she had been hiding. Find out in
Book #1 The Amateurs, and due to the
cliffhanger type ending, I am looking
forward to reading more of the series and seeing the direction it leads.
Review: Beauty of the Beast - Book #1 Fairytale Retellings - Rachel L. Demeter - March 2017
One of my favorite
fairytales happens to be Beauty and the Beast.
The whole looking past imperfections and finding your true love as it is what
is on the inside that counts, not what
the person looks like. With the new movie
out as well, all spotlight has been on the Beauty and the Beast movie and
theme. In Beauty of the Beast, we meet Isabella aka Belle who lives with her
dad and her evil stepsisters. Her father is getting sick, and her two stepsisters are bleeding her father dry. In
Beauty of the Beast, Belle is the epitome of intelligent and sweet and has
captured the attention of the Viscount whom of course she can't stand. When an opportunity to run away comes up,
Belle goes along with her father, and
during the journey her father is ill. They stumble upon a Castle where the
forgotten Prince Adam lives. When Adam
was a boy, there was a riot and his
family murdered, and Adam scarred for
life. Thus begins the twist of the tale of Beauty and the Beast as we read the
interactions between Belle and Adam through their ups and downs.
The Beauty of the Beast is the perfect read for those who love renditions of
Fairytales and whose hearts are captured
with the tale of Beauty and the Beast.
