A little late in the day with my February reads, but these are the books that were on my bedside table last month.
I love Rebecca Chance books and Bad Twins was no different. They always have a strong female lead, are sexy, fast paced and throw in lots of twists along the way. Reading this book has only gone to remind me how much I need to read the rest of her books I’ve missed recently. Here’s what it says on the back of the book:
‘It’s no surprise to anyone that Jeffrey Sachs, billionaire CEO of his own hotel chain, has a drop-dead gorgeous Estonian mistress. But stepping down to spend his retirement years with her? No one saw that coming – least of all his wife!
So now the prize of becoming Sachs CEO is up for grabs – and Jeffrey’s four children have until the day of his wedding to compete for the job.
The front runner is Conway, the older son and golden boy. But Charlotte, a glamorous social media star with an Instagram-perfect family, is hugely ambitious, fully prepared to scheme and backstab to get to the top. Then there’s the dark horse: Bella, her mild-mannered, hard-working twin sister. Or could Bart, the youngest child, a sexy, incorrigible playboy, somehow catapult himself into Daddy’s good books?
In a game where the ultimate prize is power beyond your wildest dreams, you should never underestimate your competitors, even if they are family . . . and, it turns out, twins can be the most dangerous rivals of all . . .’
This really was a great book and went in a completely different direction to what I’d originally assumed it would. It’s a great one if you like a little bit more from your chick lit than just a happy ever after.
Relight my Fire
‘Phoebe and Oliver had their happy ending, but now, with a five year old daughter, they are far from the blissful hedonistic lifestyle of when they first started dating. Not one for giving up, Phoebe creates a sexy wishlist: a jar where they can ask the other for anything they’ve ever wanted in bed – or out of it. But with distractions aplenty, will they be able to relight the fire in the bedroom?’
Relight my Fire is certainly not for the faint hearted. This hilarious novel had me laughing so hard I cried, then actually cried from the sheer injustice and frustration of the storyline. It’s real life in all its messy, sweary glory and certainly not some sweet little fairy tale.
Tell Me a Secret
Another author I haven’t read for a while and was instantly reminded just how good she is upon reading Tell Me a Secret. Here’s what the blurb says:
‘Best friends Holly and Roz tell each other everything.
So when Holly gets a shot at her dream job after putting everything on hold to raise her daughter, she assumes Roz will be waiting to pop the champagne.
But is she just imagining things or is Roz not quite as happy as she should be?
And now she thinks about it, a few things don’t quite add up…
Perhaps it was a mistake to tell Roz all her secrets.
Because it takes two to tango.
But only one to start a war…’
Intrigued? You will be! I somehow didn’t see the twists coming in this one at all. It’s one of those books that keep you on the edge of your seat, unable to put it down because you simply can’t bear to tear yourself away. A must read if you haven’t already.
