Magan is a newer author to me. This novella was quite funny. I couldn't stop laughing at the banter between Chris and Mary. Famed is told in a dual POV.

Mary is an actress struggling to get positive social and publicity reviews. It all stems down to a fake sex tape she made with her bodyguard and his boyfriend. She was trying to get rid of her loser boyfriend. Ever since then, she hasn't had very much luck with publicists.

Chris is a hard worker for Tate and Cane. He is waiting for his big break to happen. Chris is trying to move up in the company. He is smart, but very sweet.

Mary is trying to get her name back out there in, but she's struggling. Her manager sets up a meeting with someone from Tate and Cane. When Chris is offered the chance to land an account on his own, he's ecstatic. But then he learns it's with Mary James, the actress with a sex tape. He knows she is having trouble with keeping publicists. Mary and Chris meet for dinner. He gets a brilliant idea of making Mary his fake girlfriend.

Can Chris be the one to save Mary? Will Mary let it go on being fake? Do they each get what they want?

I loved the chemistry between Mary and Chris. You could really feel it come off the pages as you read! Great novella.


One-Night Stand-In - T. Gephart

Sarah Madison loved working at Tate & Cane Enterprises.

While she looked and, for the most part, acted conservatively—she was a gladiator in the boardroom. The fast-paced, energetic work environment not only fed her need for corporate blood but also allowed her to work for one of her role models, Olivia Cane—living proof a woman really can have it all.

And after months of paying her dues, she was finally offered the promotion she’d been vying for. Which was great, except for the fact she had to share the position with a new guy they brought in especially for the role.

Kyle Drake was smart, experienced, and probably just as good, if not better, in negotiations. And if she wasn’t careful, prove he could do the job without her. Add in good-looking and an incredibly sexy smooth talker, and everyone in the office either wanted to be him or sleep with him. Which Sarah could have totally ignored if he hadn’t been the stranger she’d married in Vegas during a fake ceremony six months earlier.

He was supposed to be her one-night stand, a stand-in for a ceremony that wasn’t even legally binding. They were never even going to see each other again. Hell, she apparently hadn’t even known his real last name at the time. It was the only time she’d ever done something completely reckless and spontaneous.

It figured that one time would come back and bite her where it hurt.

T. Gephart has never been on my reading radar before, but she is now! This novella, even though it was short, was incredible and a great read.

Sarah is gaining a promotion at Tate and Cane, but it comes as a partnership. Something's she not prepared for or happy about. She has always worked hard and was counting on becoming someone. She is feisty!

Kyle has been the type of guy who plays hard, but works harder. He commands respect in a boardroom and it's given. Kyle recently moved from Chicago to New York City.

Sarah and Kyle met a few months back in Las Vegas, when he agrees to be her stand in husband for one night. They never really did get married, but they did like to pretend. They both returned to their normal lives, only for them to meet again. They both are paired up to work together at Tate and Cane. Kyle is still pinning for Sarah. He tries to get to break and go out with him again. But Sarah is more concerned with him leaving, so she can have the job to herself.

Do Sarah and Kyle work and excel together? Or will one of them leave? Can Kyle prove to Sarah he wants more?

I loved this quirky novella! It was short, but filled with passion, add some funny banter, and you get a great story.




Becoming the new Marketing Manager at Tate and Cane was a game changer. I was hell bent on proving I deserved this job, and that it wasn’t my cousin Sterling Quinn who had helped me score the new job title. Him being one of the CEO’s best friend—didn’t help the rumors.

Well screw that.

Ten years of sweat and hard work was the reason I was sitting in a large corner office with a killer Manhattan view. More focused than I’d ever been, it was time to take the bull by the horns.

And God help the person who stood in in my way.


Things I left behind in Seattle, Washington: A promising career at a top marking firm, the past I was desperate to escape, and obviously my sense of direction. It was because of all of those reasons I was standing in the middle of New York City lost and cursing at my phone.

If I didn’t get to Tate and Cane soon, I wouldn’t only be late, but also blow the chance to make the good impression on my new boss, Mason Quinn. And I needed that more than anything.

One wrong turn, an unfortunate collision, and an expensive suit drenched in my soy chia tea latte was not how I wanted to start my first day.

Then there was the other little problem I had. The drop dead gorgeous man whose suit I’d ruined was my new boss.

And boy did he look pissed.

The Run InThe Run In by Kelly Elliott
Chantal's rating: 5 of 5 iScream Cones

Kelly has always been a must read whenever she has something new come out. And this novella was amazing! I literally couldn't put it down. This one was hilarious and fiery work romance.

Saylor recently moved to New York City to start a new job as a marketing research analyst. She is feisty and worked hard at her job. She left her old job and home in Seattle because her ex-boyfriend couldn't grasp they weren't together anymore.

Mason is in charge of research at Tate and Cane. He had come from Chicago for the job recently. He is very arrogant and quite mouthy. He gets what he wants, most of the time.

Saylor is lost trying to find her new place of employment. While following the directions her friend gave her, she runs into a man and spills her hot tea all over him. The man was very mad and started spouting off about it. When she finally makes her to Tate and Cane, she discovers the man is her new boss, Mason. Fearing that she may quit, Mason asks for a do-over. Saylor has been given her first job and she starts with such fire, but soon discovers Mason is hard to work for.

Will Mason and Saylor be able to work together? Can Mason control his mouth at work? Does Saylor stay at Tate and Cane?

This novella was hilarious with the funny and quite foul mouthed Mason. Saylor provided a balance to the story. This is a definite must read if you are looking for a office romance and a quick read.



I was rich, single, and connected, which meant a steady diet of beautiful women wherever I went.

I really did think I had the perfect life.

Until I went and married a supermodel I’d just met, and everything changed.

Of course there were choices. But the word annulment meant giving her up, and I never give up anything. Still, I was a bachelor at heart, and having a wife, well, I didn’t really know what to do with that.

After only forty-eight hours of marriage, I had already gone and screwed everything up.

Now I have thirty days to prove to my new wife that I’m husband material. There’s only one problem—I don’t even know what husband material means. However, I’m certain that won’t stop me from excelling at it.

My wife tells me it isn’t going to be easy. That I have numerous issues to overcome.

First, there’s my jealousy. It needs to be tamed. Did I flip over the fact that her latest picture was causing men around the world to do dirty things all over the covers she graced? Hell, yes. I couldn’t help myself though. When her photo went viral, my caveman instincts kicked in, and I demanded she quit her job and stay home—barefoot and pregnant in my kitchen. I can work on that, right?

Then there’s my mother. I need to convince her that my new wife is not the money hungry floozy she called her. Did my mother actually call her that? Yes. I can’t help it that my mother wants me to get rid of my new wife. The problem is what my mother wants, she always gets one way or another. Still, turning my mother’s opinion around can’t be that hard, can it?

There are many other issues, but according to my new wife, those are minor compared to the biggest one—she says I will never be able to accept being tied down.

Don’t worry—I got this one. I intend to prove to her in no uncertain terms that being tied up, down, or horizontal is just what this Upper East Sider needs.

Chantal's rating: 5 of 5 iScream Cones

Kim is new to me, but I need to go back and read her prior stuff, including Toxic, Blow, and Crush. Because these characters had me wanting more. It was hilarious and the story flowed very well.

James was the eternal bachelor, extremely wealthy, and incredibly hot. He is well connected in the New York society. James knows what he wants and always gets it.

Lindsay is a supermodel, so she's extremely gorgeous with a killer body. She still is extremely smart and worked very hard to get where she is. She also is very flirtatious.

James and Lindsay meet at a nightclub. It's an instant connection, which then leads them to Las Vegas for the night. Add in some alcohol and then some not so thought things happen, like James and Lindsay getting married. But James doesn't know how to stay with one person for forever I does he.

Can Lindsay makes James see they belong together? Will James show Lindsay he is committed to their marriage? Do they last?

This novella, although short, was perfect! I couldn't put it down! I had to see if James and Lindsay stuck it out or if James screwed it up.


Battle of the Sexes Adriana Locke

Carver Jones’ partner at Jones + Gallum had to step down for medical reasons. He’s absolutely devastated. He swears. Just ignore his cheeky grin, okay?

When word reaches his fancy corner office that Gallum is replacing himself with his daughter, Amity, Carver is ecstatic.

For real this time.

Jones squashes men in the business industry flat. A woman? Pfst. He’ll be completely in charge in no time, doing whatever he wants. He’s so ready for this.

But is he ready to fight the hardest fight of his life? No, not the one to maintain control of his company. The one to keep control of his heart.

The battle may begin in the boardroom, but the war will definitely be won in the bedroom. May the best sex win.

Chantal's rating: 5 of 5 iScream Cones

Adriana has always captured my interest with her books. This novella was just what I needed! It was quirky, light hearted, and had a bit a fire with the two main characters.

Carver is currently the president of Jones and Gallum. He has always looked up to his father who was once in charge and part owner on the Jones side. Carver is constantly working and trying to come up with ways to make the company better.

Amity, the daughter of Gallum, the other half of Jones and Gallum, is back in New York City. She had recently left her job at a Fortune 500 company, where she was relentless as boss.

Carver recently learns that his CEO is stepping down from his position and he wants it. During a boardroom meeting, he discovers that Gallum's daughter, Amity is also up for the CEO position. Carver and Amity grew up together, but time has come between them. As they both try to impress the board why they should be the CEO, the chemistry also starts to rise between them.

Who becomes the CEO of Jones and Gallum? Does Amity decide New York City isn't home anymore for her? Can Carver open up his heart to her?

This book was great! I loved the passion these two shared for the company their fathers built. If you are looking for a quick, light read, I highly recommend it!


UNSUPERVISED by Cora Kenborn


A non-existent love life, unstable paycheck, and a six-year-old who’d rather hit boys than books sound more like a cry for help than a dating profile. On paper, it would seem like I need a life coach, but I’ve managed to get a decent grip on the single-dad thing. My love life, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. With my sexy Irish accent, I should have women of all ages losing their minds, but I seem to attract only a certain type—crazy.

The last thing I want is a new relationship, but I need a date for my company’s charity function. A chance meeting with a tall, leggy blonde who looks like she could use a night out is the perfect solution. Beautiful, sane, and she has a kid? We have a winner.

I didn’t count on Laken being unforgettable. Unlike all the other fake women I’ve met in this city, she’s real. And if there’s one thing I value more than anything, it’s honesty.


I didn’t bust my ass in college to be a nanny. Unfortunately, a 4.0 GPA and sucking up to the owner’s sister did nothing to secure a coveted Tate & Cane Enterprises internship. I’m not proud of being a nanny-for-hire to get my foot in the door, but my wealthy socialite employer has the ears of company executives. Swallowing my pride, I do what I need to—until an afternoon at the park changes everything.

I don’t mean to let him think Preston is my kid, but he just assumes. This isn’t me. I’m not a liar. Although his panty-melting accent does unspeakable things to me, I should set the record straight. There’s only one problem. Niall is a freelance photographer for Tate & Cane and invites me to a company event as his plus-one. He’s my “in.”

If I can hold on to this charade long enough, I can get the job and the man of my dreams. I’m winging this completely unsupervised. Game on.




TWISTED by Mandi Beck

Three friends walk into a bar . . . One walks out the fake girlfriend of a hot, bearded Scotsman.

Fannin McGuire is up for promotion at Tate and Cane Enterprises, but first she has to make it through her stepsister’s wedding. To Fannin’s ex. Yep. Her ex-fiancé is about to be her new brother-in-law. One big happy family. And lucky her, she also gets to work with him.

While Fannin is putting all of her energy into her career, her ex is putting all of his energy into making her life hell. Just when Fannin is sure she’ll be attending the wedding without a plus one, in walks Jasper James to save the day. He’s the bartender at the Iron Flask, the account she’s trying to land, and everything she didn’t know she needed or wanted. Before Fannin knows what’s happening, Jasper is playing knight in shining armor and she likes it. And him. A lot. With his smooth Scottish accent, ridiculously good looks, and that beard? She doesn’t stand a chance.

Jasper isn’t in the habit of rescuing anyone. But when Fannin is confronted by her ex about her lack of a date for his upcoming nuptials, Jasper can’t help but step in. Her wild hair, violet eyes, and killer legs have him doing a few things he normally wouldn’t. Never mind that he shouldn’t be getting involved with the woman in charge of making the bar a global success.

Their fake relationship becomes more real than either thought it would. Now they’re at the mercy of their feelings when truths are twisted, and the lies don’t taste as smooth as the whisky.

Mandi has such a way with words and her current novella was hard to put down. I had to know what was going to happen to Fannin and Jasper.

Fannin is an employee at Tate and Cane. She is currently vying for a promotion. The only problem is that she has to work with her ex-boyfriend, who's about to marry her stepsister.

Jasper is an insanely hot bartender at the Iron Flask. He has tattoos, a beard, and a Scottish accent. Jasper is known for getting any woman he wants into his bed. One thing about him, is he extremely genuine.

Fannin and her team are at the Iron Flask doing research on them. Her friends bring up the fact she is going to her stepsister and ex-boyfriends wedding alone. Fannin could care less about going alone, but Jasper feels different about it. Especially after meeting said ex-boyfriend. Jasper offers to be her plus one. The spark that ignites between them is off the charts HOT!

Does Fannin just use Jasper for the wedding? Or will Jasper convince her that it should be more? What has Fannin gotten herself into?

I loved this novella! Jasper and his hot alpha, bearded self, Fannin doesn't have the will power to resist him! I know I couldn't! Definitely a must read for a quick read. I hope Mandi has more in store for this couple!


CHEEKY by Natasha Madison

Bradley Fitch has it all. A suave job, a gigantic trust fund, and an accent that makes panties drop faster than the speed of light. His new life in New York City is fast-paced and furious, but it's nothing a little getaway can't cure.

Her ex is actually married, her luggage is lost, and her reservation is cancelled. And she's sitting next to the man she swore to hate forever

This was my first experience with reading Natasha and she definitely peaked my interest. This novella is about a man falling for his best friends little sister. I've always loved the forbidden romance stories and she nailed it!

Lexi is recently single and about to embark on a trip she has had planned for a while. Her ex-boyfriend was actually married and she needed a break from being in New York City.

Bradley is from Great Britain and has come to work for his company in New York City. He is known womanizer and his accent doesn't help. Bradley is also extremely successful in the business world and very wealthy.

Lexi is about to head to Las Vegas, to forget her lying ex-boyfriend, when she literally runs into her brother's best friend, Bradley. He advises her that he too is traveling to Las Vegas. He doesn't see his best friends little sister, he sees a drop dead gorgeous woman. They end up sitting next to each other and sparks start to fly.

Does what happen in Vegas,stay in Vegas? Will Lexi admit that she has always held a place for Bradley in heart since she was young? Can Bradley stay true to his best friend or will he break down for Lexi?

This novella was cute. I loved that have known each other a long time, but still don't really know everything about one another. Recommended for a quick summer read.
