Famed is a quick but sweet love story.
Magan Vernon is a new author to me so what a better way to sample her writing but then to read a novella from the Imperfect Love World.
Overall I really liked this novella. I thought it was a good mix of humor, romance and steam. Although it was fairly predictable when it came to the direction the story went I still found it satisfying. I enjoyed the writing style and the pace and flow of the book worked well. I look forward to reading more books from this author.
As I said earlier this novella is part of Kendall Ryan the Imperfect Love World and I thought it was a great addition. This is not a series and each book is a standalone but we do get a tie in with Kendall’s Hitched Series. I enjoyed seeing Rosie and Noah in this story. No you don’t have to read those books to enjoy this one, it’s just that if you have you’ll appreciate the cameos of Noah and Rosie.
This story the focus is on Chris and Mary. Chris is a PR rep who works for Tate & Cane and is trying to get a promotion. So when his boss offers him lead on their newest client he is thrilled. The client being the famous actress Mary James. Mary made a fatal mistake in her career all to make an ex jealous and it completely backfired on her. Now she needs to revamp her reputation to try and get some acting jobs. Will Chris be able to help Mary?? What happens when they realize real feelings are starting to play into things?? Can they have their HEA?? Read this sweet story to find out.
I would definitely recommend this book to everyone.
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.
THE RUN IN – KELLY ELLIOTT
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 In is a standalone novella written by Kelly Elliott for Kendall Ryan’s Imperfect Love World.
I enjoyed this story but it also frustrated me to no end!! This to me was not a normal Kelly Elliott story. Now that isn’t all bad but what I didn’t like about it was that I had a hard time connecting to the Hero. He wasn’t like her normal Heroes and I wanted to junk punch him on many occasions.
I loved the forbidden storyline of Boss/Employee office romance. But I think this story had way to much angst and sexual tension for my liking. It made the ending a little too hard to believe…in my opinion. I also didn’t like Mason’s behavior for most of the story. I have to say I think Saylor (the heroine) truly saved this book for me. I loved her character. She was strong, independent and sassy!! She knew how to stand up for herself and put her Boss in his place.
I also loved that the majority of this story takes place at Tate & Cane. Since both Mason and Saylor work for that company. It was great to see Olivia Tate (Noah’s wife from Hitched series) in this story. With that being said, the Hitched series or The Fix Up do not have to be read to enjoy this story. You’ll just understand who these other characters are that are mentioned in the story if you have already read the other books.
I would recommend this book for anyone who loves a good forbidden office romance story that is filled with sexual tension and angst.
TIED BY KIM KARR
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.

~ 5 Forever Tied Stars ~
What a great novella by Kim Karr this was. She has definitely become one of my go to authors.
Tied is a novella that is in Kendall Ryan’s Imperfect Love World. I thought this was a great addition to this collection.
What happens when you go to Vegas and what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas?? Well this book will tell you what happens 😉
Tied is a standalone novella told in Dual POV. It’s an opposites attract kind of story. We meet and follow James and Lindsay in this story. James is from a very well off family and Lindsay has had to work her way to where she is today. James sees Lindsay in a club one night and is determined to get her into his bed. They hit off and when his friends all take a overnight trip to Vegas he asks Lindsay to go too. She of course says yes…and what happens then doesn’t stay in Vegas. Can two people from completely different worlds make a life together?? What happens when family and pasts cause complications for the couple?? Will they get their HEA?? Read this fun and sexy story to find out.
I loved that we also get to see a glimpse of Noah Tate in this story. Noah is actually James’s cousin. I am finding it great how these books are connecting together. Don’t get me wrong…NO other book needs to be read before reading Tied. You’ll just appreciate the cameo of Noah if you have read the Hitched series by Kendall Ryan.
So if you are a fan of Kim Karr’s work then you will want to read this gem of a book. The characters are lovable and the storyline is entertaining. If you have a couple hours to spare, you should definitely pick this novella 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.
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.
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.
What says party and unwind like Las Vegas? Nothing. Plus, whatever happens there has to stay there.
When his best friend bails, he finds himself sitting on the plane next to his best friend’s sister.
She’s off-limits—proverbial caution tape wrapped around her body. Of course, she’s also totally ball busting gorgeous.
Lexi Quinn fell in love with Bradley at eight years old and then vowed to kill him at eight and a half. What was supposed to be a romantic week away is turning into a nightmare. 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
One week. No strings attached. What is the worst that could happen?
It’s all fun and games till this British bad boy gives new meaning to BBC and becomes a little bit too cheeky.

~ 5 Cheeky Stars ~
AMAZING!!!! I would give this book more than 5 stars if I could.
Cheeky is my first book by Natasha Madison and I know I will continue to read her work after finishing this book. What a great addition to Kendall’s Imperfect Love World. I think this is my favorite of this collection of novellas.
Cheeky was the perfect mix of forbidden love, humor, romance, and sass. Oh and don’t forget the spice 😉 Whew…don’t read this book while in public. It will have you blushing and wishing for a fan. I loved this author writing style. She gave us an entertaining storyline and wonderful characters you will fall in love with. It also didn’t hurt that we got to see Sterling (from The Fix Up by Kendall Ryan) in this story. This is a standalone novella and The Fix Up does NOT need to be read first, but trust me after meeting him in Cheeky you will want to meet Sterling. The flow and pace of this story was perfect. We get the speed of a novella but the content of a full length novel. This book truly wasn’t lacking for anything.
As I said Cheeky is a standalone novella told from Dual POV. It is a friends to lovers but also a forbidden love story, because Bradley is the Best Friend of Lexi’s Brother Sterling. I loved how these two characters interacted with each other. Their friendly banter was quick witted and funny. But I also felt the chemistry these two shared. Bradley and Lexi definitely know how to melt a kindle 😉 So what happens when you go to Vegas and what happens there doesn’t stay there?? Find out how Lexi and Bradley handle the situation.
This book will have you laughing, blushing and falling in love with these characters. I would 100% recommend this book to everyone who is a fan of friends to lovers with a hint of the forbidden. I know I can’t wait to read more books by this author. Don’t miss out on this gem of a story!!!!
