Lush Money by Angelina M. Lopez

Lush Money by Angelina M. Lopez

Lush Money (Filthy Rich Book 1) by Angelina Lopez is a must read debut novel. From the moment I saw the cover and read the summary, I knew I had to read this story. Don’t wait, this is a book people will be talking about and you’ll want to share in the conversation ;). 

Each page has purpose in moving the characters along and their arcs written so seamlessly that they slowly mature and then explode the way we anticipate, with a few surprises, from the intricate details woven in each chapter. The opening sentence hooked me in and the story didn’t release it’s grasp on me until the very last word. Monte del Vino Real and the stateside settings are picture-postcard exciting. This book is a world in vivid color with descriptions so rich and detailed that I feel I’m standing in the vineyard, with my shoes off. I can feel the dirt beneath my feet and on my hands, the heat from the sun beating down upon my shoulders. I can smell the fragrance of the vines as I inhale the fresh, crisp air.

Roxanne Medina is confident, bold, and not afraid to take what she wants. It doesn’t matter what she has to give up in order to acquire a deal with the Golden Prince, Mateo Ferdinand Juan Carlos de Esperanzo y Santos. From the start he’s skeptical and not interested in her proposal. Three days a month for a woman he doesn’t know is three days too many. Despite negotiating for better terms, the minor details are necessary to ensure her fairy tale ending. Will he agree? When Mateo discovers that his country needs this arrangement, will he continue on with the plan and charade, or do his best to terminate the negotiations even if it means losing what he holds most dear?

Mateo has spent years working to improve his reputation and build a business that will strengthen his status and set him apart from his father. A lifetime of dreams will come close to being crushed when Roxanne insists he’s the prince she needs for her storybook ending. Determined to be better than his reputation, he’s willing to risk everything to set things right.

As you settle into the book, there is an ease with how Angelina writes, it’s smooth and fluid. The transition and balance of language and culture from Spanish to English, and back, rolled effortlessly. What makes this story so exciting and enjoyable is that for readers who don’t speak Spanish, the narrative from hero to country and everything in-between is nonintoxicating and exciting.  

Readers, this multicultural romance stands out and sparkles. If you’re looking for a book adventure with a strong heroine billionaire, a wild Prince, a setting that’s magical, and lots of family secrets to keep our characters on their toes – this a refreshing and welcome change! Let’s not forget a handful of seriously steamy scenes that will smoke your e-reader. Folks – Angelina makes walking down an alley sexy and exciting!

This inferno read will cause you to turn on the A/C, the fan, and take a cold shower.

I received an ARC from the author for a fair and honest review. I can’t wait for the second installment. Be sure to check back tomorrow for an excerpt!

Angelina M. Lopez wrote “arthur” when her kindergarten teacher asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up. In the years since she learned to spell the word correctly, she’s been a journalist for an acclaimed city newspaper, a freelance magazine writer, and a content marketer for small businesses. At long last, she found her way back to “author.”

Angelina writes sexy, contemporary stories about strong women and the confident men lucky enough to fall in love with them. The fact that her parents own a vineyard in California’s Russian River Valley might imply a certain hedonism about her; it’s not true. She’s a wife and a mom who lives in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. She makes to-do lists with perfectly drawn check boxes. She checks them with glee.

Her first book, Lush Money, is available now from Carina Press. Her second book, Hate Crush, will be available June 2020. You can find more about her at her website, and at @AngelinaMLo on Instagram and Twitter.


Blog Tour: Cocky Playboy by Sloane Howell and Alex Wolf

Blog Tour: Cocky Playboy by Sloane Howell and Alex Wolf




Cocky Playboy by Sloane Howell and Alex Wolf is an absolute wild must read, and I can’t wait to see how this series develops. From the first page the writing is seamless and I can’t figure out where one writer ends and the other begins. The story moves fast with witty dialogue and enough heat to warm you up on a cool fall night. I’m already counting down the days until I can read the second installment Sloane and Alex :).

When you work hard in your career and discover the one person you need to impress to move your career is the one who will change your life, will you give in to your desires or stay firm and keep it all business? Will Tate and Decker mix business with pleasure? If so, they are in for a wild adventure as long as they leave it in the bedroom and not the boardroom.

A cab, one drink, a merger and a secret will thrust Tate Reynolds and Decker Collins into a relationship that is wickedly fun and full of twists and turns. An added bonus is the attention to Decker’s siblings, hopefully this means they will get their own stories!

This inferno read will cause you to turn on the A/C, the fan, and take a cold shower.

Jace Sutton doesn’t believe the rumors about Detective Day and  he’s ready to capture her heart. It’s time to take a risk and go after what he wants, will he jeopardize everything?  It’s time to put aside their differences and discover that a few misadventures are exactly what they need.
Investigations, rumors, a tragic past will test both Cat and Jace. I’m always up for a Sierra Simone adventure. Caution, this scorchin hot read may lead to unexpected need to turn on the A/C. Are you ready?

I received an ARC from Bare Naked Words for a fair and honest review. It’s time for you to get your copy and discover another must read from Waterhouse Press.

Meet the Author
Sierra is a voracious reader of all things including the smuttiest smut, young adult, piles of non-fiction for research, and everything Bill Bryson (especially on audio).
She loves writing the dirtiest things that she can think of, King Arthur, sparkling water, Tarot, coffee, leggings, and learning new words daily.
Her previous jobs have included firing ceramics, teaching living history lessons in a one-room schoolhouse in full, 1908-approved school marm attire, and working as a librarian for several years—not in that order
She lives in the Kansas City area with her hot cop husband, two children, and two giant dogs. (And two cats, but they’re so naughty we don’t talk about them.)
The social media she cares about the most are Spotify and (her very very NSFW) Tumblr. Following her in those places is a true love language, indeed.

by USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss.
Flame is book one in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series. 
Men of Inked: Heatwave features steamy romance, hot alphas, and strong heroines    
(**City & Suzy’s Daughter**)
Genre: Contemporary Romance /Romantic Suspense

Flame by Chelle Bliss is wild with a dash of danger and a shot of sin. Are you ready for a second-chance biker romance that isn’t like all the others? Don’t judge a book by it’s cover and don’t make assumptions about bikers. It’s time to grab your leather jacket and hop of a bike for a ride with your next book boyfriend.

Sometimes we need to let loose and have a little fun but then get back to the daily grind and move on. What would you do if that week of sin walked into your life unexpectedly? What if you still had feelings and feared the truth would ruin everything?

Gigi Gallo will need to control her heart and carefully navigate now that Pike Moore is back in her life. Her family is protective and if she revealed the truth they might not be so forgiving.

Both will risk their hearts and job if they reveal the truth to the Gallo family. With their lives on the line it’s a story that just leaves you wanting so much more! The tension, drama and mysterious past add to the fantastic story.

I enjoyed reading the first book in the Men of Inked series and was surprised at the cliffhanger ending. If you like your books to have all plot points neatly wrapped up by the very last page please note this might not be the book for you.

This spicy read is best enjoyed with your favorite iced-beverage, a cozy chair, and maybe a fan.I can’t wait to see what happens in the second installment and hope I don’t have to wait too long.

I received an ARC from Bare Naked Words for a fair and honest review. I can’t wait to send a few to my friends for their next book adventure.
