Book Boyfriend of the Week: Dell Connelly from Animal Attraction (Animal Magnetism #2) by Jill Shalvis with Review

This week my book boyfriend is Dell Connelly from Animal Attraction by Jill Shalvis.  He's a hot, sexy, veterinarian who is half American-Indian and literally fulfills the description of tall, dark, and handsome perfectly, while having that rugged alpha male charm that women love.    

Animal Attraction 
(Animal Magnetism #2)
by Jill Shalvis
Published: October 4, 2011
Publisher:  Berkley

She’s tempting his basic instincts…

Sunshine, Idaho, is a quiet ranching town, a perfect place to give injured animals a refuge…or to find one yourself. Veterinarian Dell Connelly suspects there’s a reason his clinic’s uber-efficient receptionist has taken shelter here.

Jade Bennett couldn’t be happier to escape the big-city jungle to work with hurt animals, and have a forlorn stray kitten make its home under her desk…or enjoy the gorgeous views of her ruggedly sexy boss.

Jade is used to planning everything in her life, but Dell’s seductive, alluring ways have sparked an uncontrollable desire. And though Dell has never had time for love, Jade’s strength and sass is the kind of call no red-blooded male can resist…

Amazon  |  Barnes and Noble  |  Goodreads

Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type—confident, sexy, smart . . . his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see.

Olivia has been keeping a secret. While Garrett lives for the next thrill, Olivia’s not sure she’ll live to see the next day. She’s undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn’t have time for a relationship with no guarantees—especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who won’t take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can’t help falling for him . . . hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything—but you can’t score without taking the tough shots.

Release Day Launch: Ember (The Eagle Elite Series) by Rachel Van Dyken with Excerpt and Giveaway

I am a Killer. A Rapist. A Monster.
I know only pain and survival.
That is until the Cappo's sister walked into my life.
And changed everything.
She's a light who makes my darkness darker, her smile makes my heart turn to ice, and I can't escape the fear her seductive looks instill--knowing it's only a matter of time before I fail--again, and take her for myself.
This is the story of my redemption.
But it's not pretty...I died, and now I'm alive, but not
living, breathing but not surviving. 
I am Phoenix De Lange, son to a murdered mob boss, estranged brother, horrible friend, monster in the making, newest leader to one of the most powerful families in the Cosa Nostra. 
And I will have my vengeance.
Or die trying.
I am Phoenix De Lange.
Death is all I know.
Until she offers me a piece of life--I can't resist taking.

Book Boyfriend of the Week: Brady Miller from Animal Magnetism by Jill Shalvis with Review

    Animal Magnestism
    by Jill Shalvis
    Published:  February 1, 2011
    Publisher:  Berkley

Co-owner of the town's only kennel, Lilah Young has lived in Sunshine, Idaho, all her life. Pilot-for-hire Brady Miller is just passing through. But he soon has Lilah abandoning her instincts and giving in to a primal desire.

It's Brady's nature to resist being tied down, but there's something about Lilah and her menagerie that keeps him coming back for more.

Goodreads  |  Amazon  |  Barnes and Noble

Audiobook Review:  I absolutely adore Jill Shalvis' books and began this particular series with the fourth book, and have ever since been dying to find the time to go back and start again at the beginning of the series.  While it is a series, each novel can be read as a standalone companion novel, but trust me, once you begin, you will definitely want more.  The story is set in the beautiful town of Sunshine Idaho.  Lilah Young runs a shelter and kennel service for animals.  She loves animals of all kinds, and is the go-to person for finding strays and other abandoned animals a home.  She is fun-loving, witty, a very hard worker, and always has about a million things on her plate.  Her two best friends AKA the hottest set of bachelors in town are Dell and Adam Connlelly.  Dell is a veterinarian and runs an animal center,  His brother Adam helps and also trains search and rescue animals.  Lilah, Dell, and Adam are best friends.

Adam and Dell have a third brother, Brady Miller, who they haven't seen in quite some time.  Brady is ex special forces, a pilot, and lives and works in extremely dangerous situations.  While in town, he and Lilah meet in the most comical way.  I don't want to give any more about that away, but trust me, you'll enjoy it. The chemistry between these two is intense from the moment they meet, but Brady doesn't do long-term relationships and has his own set of issues stemming from the past he has to deal with.  Lilah has been hurt before and is reluctant to go down the relationship road again, but girls, Brady is just to hot and sexy not to have a little fun with.   Whether or not she can keep her heart out of the mix will be the challenge, not to mention the fact that Dell and Adam are extremely overprotective of her. That said, the heart wants what the heart wants, and everything that happens between the heart wanting and actually getting that proves to be an absolutely delightful story.

Animal magnetism is one of those books that totally captures your heart, makes you smile, swoon, and sigh over and over again, and I total loved it.  This series is a definitely a must read for fans of contemporary romance.

As far as the audio goes, the narrator is awesome and does a wonderful job, making this a pleasure to listen to.

“You, Lilah, scare the hell out of me." 
"Why?" she whispered.
He met her gaze and held it. "Because I could fall for you, Lilah. Hard and deep and never want to come back up."
She could scarcely breathe. "What's wrong with that?"
"We'd drown.” 

“Let me Guess-you lost the coin toss with Dell, which left you stuck with me. Only you don't know how to tell me this because you're a penis-carrying human and can't figure out how to communicate with a mere vagina.”

Review: Below the Belt (Worth the Fight #3) by Sidney Halston from Loveswept

Below the Belt
(Worth the Fight #3)
by Sidney Halston
Published February 10th 2015 by Loveswept

In Sidney Halston’s latest sizzling MMA romance, a former title contender turns the tables on his knockout trainer with a lesson in seduction.

Once one of the most sought-after names on the mixed martial arts circuit, Antonio “Scarface” Marino watched his career go down for the count as he chased skirts and made tabloid headlines. Now he’s finally making a comeback, and it’s all thanks to Francesca Silva, a Brazilian bombshell as tough as any of her fighters. But who’s the real Francesca: the trash-talking trainer who rides him hard, or the vulnerable woman who blushes at his touch?

Review: Quarterback Draw by Jaci Burton

Quarterback Draw
by Jaci Burton
  • Series: A Play-by-Play Novel (Book 9)
  • Paperback: 336 pages
  • Publisher: Berkley Trade (February 3, 2015)

Grant Cassidy knows how to be a football star—flash that dazzling smile, throw the winning pass, get the girl. But while the hot quarterback loves the game and the lifestyle, no woman has come close to catching his heart. Then he matches wits with a smart, gorgeous model, and Grant finds himself wanting more than a fling.

Supermodel Katrina Koslova might live in a world of glitz and camera flashes, but she works hard to provide for the family that relies on her. She doesn’t have time for fun—much less a boyfriend—but Grant seems determined to be the exception to Katrina’s rule.

Their explosive chemistry is undeniable, but Katrina’s afraid to let go and rely on anyone but herself. Grant intends to ease her fears and prove he’s a man of style and substance

Amazon  |  Barnes and Noble  |  Goodreads

My Thoughts:  Quarterback Draw is a hot romance featuring the supermodel and the star quarterback, though neither fit your typical stereotype at all after you get to know them.  Grant is a hottie that is for sure, but he is also a really great guy.  Katrina  has a lot of issues and has had a rough time of it, though she manages to hide it well, that is from everyone except Grant.  Of course there is the romance, the chemistry, the hot sexy scenes, but there is also something additional in this book...it is rooted around family, namely Katrina's brother and sister.  This provided for an entertaining and different type of story and was also something that made the book stand out.  Then there is Grant's family, who were all awesome and opened up a whole new world to Katrina and her siblings.

 I loved the journey Jaci Burton took the characters on in this story.  If you love contemporary romance, especially sports-themed romance, then you are in for a treat.  Check it out.
