Book Box

Unboxing: Romance Reveal Book Box January 2018

For Christmas, I ordered myself the Romance Reveal Book Box! I decided to opt in for the 4 signed book option which $39.95 plus $9.95 for shipping coming out to a total of $49.90 (shipping is different wherever you live). This was my first ever book box of any kind and I must say I am very pleased with it.

However, is it worth the $49.90 price tag? Currently the prices for the paperbacks on Amazon are: The Charmer ($7.99), My Week with the Bad Boy ($13.99), Suddenly Engaged ($6.99), and Finding London ($12) coming to a total of $40.97. I have Amazon Prime where shipping is ‘free’ and buying these books myself would’ve saved me $9. But it was fun not knowing what books I would receive even if I did worry over it since I am very picky with my books. I am satisfied with the selection and I will continue my subscription for next month!

In the box

TitleThe Charmer 
Author: Avery Flynn
Series: Harbor City #2 (can be read as a standalone)
Publish date: September 25th 2017 by Entangled
Genres: Comedy, Contemporary

Hot, filthy rich, and usually irresistible, Hudson Carlyle just met the one woman in Harbor City who’s immune to his legendary charm. Nerdy ant researcher Felicia Hartigan is the unsexiest dresser ever. She trips over air. And she’s in love with totally the wrong man. Hudson can’t stop thinking about her.

His regular moves won’t work here. He’s going to need a new plan, starting with helping her win over the man she thinks she wants. And if in the process she ends up falling for Hudson instead? Even better. Step one, charm her panties off. Step two, repeat step one as frequently as possible.

But what if the famous Carlyle charm finally fails him when he needs it most? Or worse, what if she figures out the one secret he’s kept from everyone, including his family, and walks away for good

TitleMy Week with the Bad Boy
Author: Kennedy Fox
Series: Bedtime Reads #1 (can be read as a standalone)
Publish date: November 2, 2017
Genres: Comedy, Contemporary, New Adult

Never trust a man who answers the front door wearing nothing more than a pair of low-cut jeans and a panty-melting smirk.

That should’ve been my first sign.

I write about guys just like him for a living—sexy and charming, yet reluctant to get into a serious relationship. His body screams sex appeal, but his condescending personality makes him a classic fuckboy.

And I want nothing to do with that.

Writing romance novels comes with its perks—traveling, meeting new people, creating characters from the voices in my head—but Ethan Rochester enters my life and rearranges all my preconceived notions about writing what inspires you.

One week is all it took. One week to realize that not everything is as it seems.

One week with the bad boy, and I wanted more.

TitleSuddenly Engaged
Author: Julia London
Series: Lake Haven #3 (can be read as a standalone)
Publish date: July 25th 2017 by Montlake Romance
Genres: Contemporary

Single mother Kyra Kokinos spends her days waiting tables, her nights working on her real estate license, and every spare moment with her precocious six-year-old daughter, Ruby—especially when Ruby won’t stop pestering their grumpy next-door neighbor. At first glance, Dax Bishop seems like the kind of gruff, solitary guy who’d be unlikely to offer a cup of sugar, let alone a marriage proposal. But that’s exactly what happens when Ruby needs life-saving surgery.

Dax showed up in East Beach a year ago, fresh from a painful divorce and looking for a place where he could make furniture and avoid people. Suddenly his life is invaded by an inquisitive munchkin in sparkly cowboy boots—and her frazzled, too-tempting mother. So he presents a practical plan: his insurance will help Ruby, and then they can divorce—zero strings attached.

But soon Kyra and Dax find their engagement of convenience is simple in name only. As their attraction deepens, a figure from the past reappears, offering a way out. Can Kyra and Dax let go so easily, or has their sudden engagement become something more?

Then she met him.

Rugged and gorgeous, Loïc Berkeley, a special forces soldier is everything she’s ever wanted. Getting him to notice her was a challenge, but keeping his love is proving to be more difficult.

Having lived a life full of sorrow, finding London brought Loïc rare happiness. Though his feelings for her are strong, is what they have powerful enough to break the cycle of his past?

When one is destined for heartbreak and loss, can love really change anything?
