SYNOPSIS

As Lucy Muchelney watches her ex-lover’s sham of a wedding, she wishes herself anywhere else. It isn’t until she finds a letter from the Countess of Moth, looking for someone to translate a groundbreaking French astronomy text, that she knows where to go. Showing up at the Countess’ London home, she hoped to find a challenge, not a woman who takes her breath away.

Catherine St Day looks forward to a quiet widowhood once her late husband’s scientific legacy is fulfilled. She expected to hand off the translation and wash her hands of the project—instead, she is intrigued by the young woman who turns up at her door, begging to be allowed to do the work, and she agrees to let Lucy stay. But as Catherine finds herself longing for Lucy, everything she believes about herself and her life is tested.

While Lucy spends her days interpreting the complicated French text, she spends her nights falling in love with the alluring Catherine. But sabotage and old wounds threaten to sever the threads that bind them. Can Lucy and Catherine find the strength to stay together or are they doomed to be star-crossed lovers?

REVIEW

Female/female romance. SIGN ME UP! But a Female/female historical romance, I am beyond intrigued. I went into this with high expectations, and they were totally met! I loved this story for many reasons. The writing was done so well that I really felt the depth of the story. I think my favorite part was that both women were in such unhappy places in their lives when they first met. They share a connection through astronomy, but one does not have fond memories associated with it. The women are also struggling with the expectations of the time period and how those expectations limit their lives and pursuit of joy. Watching Lucy and Catherine build a relationship and grow together had me utterly enthralled with this story. It was a little slow in the middle, but I usually feel that historical romances have a slow part somewhere that I could skim through (it’s a personal problem haha). Overall, I feel that this book was exactly what I wanted it to be and I would definitely recommend it!

Thank you to Avon books for the eARC in exchange for an honest review!

Sexy Filthy Boss by Piper Rayne

5 STARS

Release Date: June 11, 2019

SYNOPSIS

He’s the sexy alpha male in the corner office who goes through assistants faster than free donuts in the breakroom.

I’m the assistant who was chosen to cover for his last fire.

The owner of the company is clear—hook the biggest client in our firm’s history and there’s a partnership for him and a promotion for me. Stipulation—we do it together.

It doesn’t take a tarot card-reading psychic to figure out where our story is headed… late nights, trips out of town, and more than a few awkward moments filled with sexual tension.

No worries though. I pride myself on my willpower. I can totally ignore his sexy grin, his rock-hard body and his dreamy brown eyes. I will not become the woman other women hate.

But it turns out that Enzo Mancini has a lot of layers and if I don’t stop peeling, I’m going to lose everything, including my dignity.

REVIEW

Anyone up for a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors? Just don’t ask Enzo to play for you! Haha. This book was a wonderful surprise. It’s not your average falling-for-the-boss story. There are realistic, current issues about a woman moving up in a male-dominated field that added depth to the story I wasn’t expecting. Annie can be timid, but she can totally hold her own at the same time. Enzo’s Character development was absolutely amazing and not what I thought it would be. The camaraderie between the brothers was full of great banter, and I’m really excited to get Dom and Carm’s stories. Not to mention their sister, Blanca, seems like a spitfire that I must know more about. I’m so very excited for this series. It’s going to be so much fun witnessing the fall of all the Mancini brothers!
