The Nemesis Affair

The Nemesis AffairLiam Kelly was a retired rugby player and he needed an outlet. With the help of his friend he put out a job application for a professional nemesis. The job required the nemesis to push Liam to work out and get out his aggression. Liam found an applicant, Sam, and liked him immediately from the text. Liam will be shocked that Sam was actually a woman.

Samantha Hess was jobless and looking for a job, any job. She will find one being a professional nemesis. Sam was hesitant as she was not assertive but she found herself liking the job. But then feelings start to play into the job when Sam finds herself attracted to Liam.

The Nemesis Affair is a novel by Erin McCarthy. This is a quick and fun book and a little strange with a job being a professional nemesis.

Liam’s character was a tough guy who needed an outlet and that outlet was someone yelling at him to work out harder. I thought the idea was a little strange but it kind of made sense. It was comical when Liam finds out Sam is a woman and that makes him work harder to impress her. Sam’s character was passive especially when it comes to getting what she wants. I liked that Sam’s character grows to be more assertive. She becomes a stronger person but she is still scared which shows at the end. Though she will become brave a take a chance which I liked.

Perfect 10

The Perfect 10Katrina was trying to figure out her new phone when she made a big mistake, she linked her bootybook app to her webpage. This mistake let everyone see how she judged the guys she had causal sex with. Katrina will quickly receive a lot of hate texts and calls from some of her ex’s but there was one who scored an almost perfect 10 that wanted to try again to get the perfect 10.

Perfect 10 is a novel by Erin McCarthy. I liked the book. It was cute and comical with the plot.

Katrina’s character seemed like a normal girl who was dating around but never finding that perfect guy. Although she did find the perfect guy in Drew but she was too scared and unsure what to do. She seemed a little frazzled but she gets it together in the end. Drew’s character, the almost perfect 10, was in all accounts a great guy. He was just a guy that wasn’t sure what to do when he had slept with his best friend. I liked that he will finally gets it together and pursues her like he should have done in the beginning. I liked how they had been friends to begin with and of course they were getting that second chance to try again.

Overall it was a fun book to read.

Legend of Jane

Hot Summer NightsLuanne needed money fast after a disastrous boyfriend bled her dry of her funds. She found a way by dressing in a crazy outfit and creating a video blog called Legend of Jane. Her blog will get her doing crazy things and with one incident with cow tipping will lead her to a man that will like all of her.

Legend of Jane is part of the Bluebonnet series by Jessica Clare. It is another novella which is 2.5 in the series. The novella was cute. It wasn’t anything mind blowing or amazing but it was cute.

Luanne was wacky with the things that she was doing for her video blog, but her method was right. People want to see outrage and strange things online. I liked that she wasn’t exactly like that in her normal day. Jane was only her job. Then there is Hank who is the officer that doesn’t put one foot out of line. Now I thought that the romance was a little forced but again that happens in novellas.

There were three other stories which I did read. Though I went into this book just for Jessica Clare’s story.

Full Throttle

Full ThrottleShawn Hamby needs a husband thanks to her grandfathers ruling. She had to get a husband so she could own and run the track which had been her grandfathers. She had little to chose from but will find herself gravitating towards Rhett Ford.

Rhett Ford was not looking for another woman to be with but will be intrigued by Shawn when he sees her at a fetish club. He will be even more intrigued with her proposal and will except. He found himself wanting this woman and made it his mission to show Shawn what she had been missing.

Full Throttle is the seventh book to Erin McCarthy’s series Fast Track. I have read all of these books and have found them fun and steamy. The seventh book certainly plays true to that fact and gets steamier. Everything about the book is steamy especially with Rhett and Shawn together.

Rhett is all about control in the bedroom but not without his partners consent. Rhett is not exactly a player but he knows how to play the game. I like that he found his match in Shawn. She was a strong woman and did not break the first moment that Rhett touched her. She fought to stay in control but soon found that it wasn’t a bad idea to given in to her hot husband.

There are of course problems that occur with the couple that will come up but when Shawn finds out news at the very end of the book there’s definitely a problem. It looked like the couple would not be walking in the sunset but McCarthy will make sure that is not the case.

I will admit that the ending was a little sappy but you gotta love that these characters are having their happy ending.

The Chase

The ChaseKendall Holbrook is focused on her career but it is hard to do when the man who was her first love is always around. She will be forced to confront Evan and will find that her feelings never left.

Evan Monroe has been going down in his career but found that interacting with Kendall was something he wanted again. There will be a small problem that will arise which will shake their already unstable relationship.

I got the fourth book, The Chase, of Fast Track by Erin McCarthy. I had to read the series out of order because this book was checked out. Now the upside of reading the book out of order I already knew that Kendall and Evan would have a happy ending thanks to the fifth book. I didn’t have to wait to find out about the little surprise that Evan would be receiving and things do work out.

Fast Track is a fun series that is a quick read no matter the book. There are hard driven characters like Kendall and Evan with lots of sexual tension that ultimately leads to hot and heavy sex, and McCarthy writes those scenes well. I loved that Kendall is continuing the career she loves no matter what others say, if she can or can’t. Evan is a man who was heart broken and it showed on the track even after all these years. He is not the best driver but a good man and will show that with how he handles Kendall and the surprise that is thrown at him.

I have finished with the series so far since the next book is coming out in December, but when I can get my hands on it I will certainly read it.

Jacked Up

Jacked UpEve Monroe is all about order and precision. Going on a date with a man like Nolan was impulsive but she went for it. Eve found that being around Nolan let her relax but she doesn’t know if what they were starting would last.

Nolan Ford went into things impulsively but he knew that his feelings for Eve were for real. He wanted to get to know her and have her take a chance with him.

The sixth book to the series Fast Track is Jacked Up by Erin McCarthy. I do love this series. Its fun and quick to read. Now this book I did like a lot but it wasn’t my favorite. I was excited to see that it was Eve who was going to be the main character. I liked her but didn’t like that she was almost a doormat at times when it came to things she wanted to do like racing, which is where her heart was. Also letting her father dictate a few things in her life. I wanted Eve to stand up for what she wanted, for what she believed, but she does get better and change throughout the book. Nolan was on the impulsive side but it made you like him even more because there was charm to him. You wanted him to have that happy ending with Eve.

Once again McCarthy brings in the sex to the story and its there but this time its almost playful between the Nolan and Eve. They had good chemistry even though they were complete opposites.

I am looking forward to going back to getting the fourth book to read it and to continue the series with the seventh book where Rhett will be the main guy.

Slow Ride

Slow RideTuesday Jones has just lost her father and is trying to get through her grief. She will soon find herself being comforted by an ex race car driver and it will turn into much more.

Daniel “Diesel” Lange has had plenty loss and tragedy in his own life. He wanted to help Tuesday but also wanted her romantically and was filled with lust for this woman.

I was waiting for the fourth book but it was already checked out so I went on to the fifth book, Slow Ride. Erin McCarthy writes a steamy plot so far in all these books in the series Fast Track. So Tuesday is a blogger that can be a little harsh when writing her stories. She calls it like she sees it, but is a good person with a few little problems. Diesel is a wonderful character. He is the strong manly type but cares and can relate to what is happening with Tuesday but he is still closed off to his past. I think both characters are dynamic and actually are very much a like being flawed. Tuesday has a becoming alcoholic problem and Diesel is too afraid to move on.

Now what Erin McCarthy does in this book is getting the characters into some really steamy scenes and there is a lot of sex between these two characters, and I mean a lot. The sex is what gets them together but its overcoming their own personal tragedies that keeps them together. That is if they can get it right. The sixth book I am reading next is Jacked Up.
