JUST FINISHED: Monster Among the Roses: A Beauty and the Beast Story by Linda Kage (review)
I just finished reading this really unique romance that intrigued me because it was a modern twist on the “Beauty and the Beast” fairytale except this version was difference because it was the OPPOSITE story!!! The hero was desperate to pay off his ailing mother’s debts when he fell upon the good graces of a wealthy benefactor who was willing to give him a job at his lavish mansion in order to pay off his mother’s debts. But he had no idea what his duties would truly entail until he was sent to the rose garden and met a tragically scarred young woman… So in this case the “beast” was the heroine and the “beauty” was the hero and it was such a refreshing on the the story so many of us already love!!! If you’re looking for a really different love story, try this book!! It can fully standalone.

But there’s an ocean between us, and I’m not sure it can be crossed with something as easy as a phone call or a plane ride.
Yet I’m willing to try. He doesn’t know this yet, but this time I’m the one with the power. And maybe – just maybe – if the air were cleared and all our secrets bared, there could still be a chance for us. And this dirty, filthy thing between us might end up being love after all.”

Standalone: The first time I lay eyes on him, I know he’ll be trouble… He’s just the kind of rich guy who always gets what he wants. And he wants two things: a night of sin, and my cooperation as he outmaneuvers his powerful mother to take control of his uncle’s estate.
I can’t afford either one. I’m the only thing standing between my little sister and the foster care system… But when his eyes rake over my body, sometimes I forget my obligations… Our night together was a mistake. I can’t afford to get sucked into his family’s treachery. But the closer I get to him, the more layers I find beneath those expensive clothes. Though I can’t forget this is temporary. He’s temporary.

He must have just moved in, even though I never saw the moving truck. He’s just as arrogant as I remember, mowing the lawn without a shirt and grinning like an idiot.

Lust by Emma Hart — New Release!!
Can standalone: “Detective Adrian Potter had a lot to answer for. I didn’t care that he was tasked with shutting down the city’s most prolific hookers. I cared that he was stopping me from providing for my daughter.
He didn’t care. Not at all. Until I broke down in the backseat of his car… And he let me go. He was a single parent, too. He knew how hard I had it. At least, he thought he did. He had a job. He had people who cared. He didn’t know just how lucky he was.

The cop and the hooker.
Happily ever fucking never.”
