A new steamy standalone Romantic Comedy from USA Today bestselling author Pamela DuMond.
Charlotte: I was an assistant at a Matchmaking Agency living on Insta-Ramen, hope, and dreams. How was it possible that I made a love match that resulted in the society marriage and decadent wedding reception of the year?
Joe: As heir to the Delacroix dynasty, I avoided society affairs like the plague. I hit the reception to drop off a bottle of Scotch. I didn’t plan on colliding with the sexy, pretty woman with the pouty lips. Certainly, didn’t intend to spill liquor all over her dress.
Charlotte:What kind of jerk spills Scotch all over… I glared up at the tuxedo-clad brick wall of a man holding the serving tray, and went weak in the knees. He was the most smoking hot waiter I’d ever seen.
Joe: I was an honorable man, always cleaned up my messes. But every press of the napkin against Charlotte’s gown filled my brain with filthy, dirty thoughts.
Charlotte: Hot Waiter was practically feeling me up in the middle of the ballroom. Worse? I was enjoying it. Hang on. Wait just one minute – he’s my new CLIENT? Fine, I’d work with the gorgeous jerk. But I didn’t care how hot he was – I would never. Ever. Sleep with him.
Joe: My grandmother hired Pouty Lips to be my Matchmaker? Oh yeah — I was totally going to sleep with Charlotte…

I have four months to make my wife fall in love with me or let her go forever.
I loved Bailey Green long before she watched her loser ex take his last breaths. I held her while they lowered his coffin into the ground, stilled her shaking hands when the nightmares would tear her from sleep. I waited for her through her grief. But while she was always willing to let me in her bed, she refused to let me in the one place I longed to be—her heart.
Tired of playing second string to a dead man, I let her go. I moved to Florida to begin my NFL career and tried to pretend my perfect life didn’t leave me empty. I’d almost given up. Until one drunken night in Vegas, we stumbled down the aisle and said, “I do.”
In exchange for the divorce she wants so badly, she’s agreed to remain my wife until the end of the year. She has no idea the favors I’ve called in or the lies I’ve told to get her here, but if I succeed, none of that matters.
My secrets always seemed justified, but Bailey has her own—secrets that explain why she always pushed me away, secrets that make me wonder if I should have let her. Now we’re in too deep and I might lose the only girl I’ve ever loved and the best friend I’ve ever had.

This is the third book in the Spitfire Trilogy. Readers will enjoy it most if they have already read Legally Yours (Book 1) and Legally Mine (Book 2).
It started innocently enough. Beautiful Harper gave Sean those eyes… those eyes that meant, yes, take me. But Harper didn’t know Sean’s secrets… She didn’t know that he liked it rough.
More than rough. He liked to dominate. To punish. To degrade. It was the only way that the black hole in his soul wouldn’t swallow him up.
He would push her a little too far, and she would run. They all ran, eventually.
But that’s not what happened… when he put his hands around her throat and squeezed, Harper moaned. When he told her to stay away, she didn’t listen, misbehaving until she got spanked. When he took out the handcuffs, there was excitement in her eyes, mixed with a little fear.
The doe-eyed redhead liked it. More than that, she wanted it. She said so, time and again.
That’s the thing about sexy strangers, though… you never know what they’re hiding. And Harper is carrying a burden so heavy that even Sean’s secrets pale in comparison.
This book is Book 1 out of 2 in the Addicted To You duet. At approximately 50,000 words, it ends in a cliffhanger. As a dark romance, it touches several sensitive topics, but contains no cheating. Book 2 will end in a happily ever after.

Full Length Standalone book with no cliffhanger. Fifth book of the “Something Series”.Recommended for mature readers due to situations of language, and sexual content.
Book 5 in the Something series. This book can absolutely be read as a standalone, but take my advice and read them all. This series has received 5 Crowns from me for each release, yes I have loved it that much. Show Me Something is no different.

She brings out his protective feelings, she also evokes emotions that he has long since buried. He can see a future with her, but with his past so present, will he be able to let it go? Or is he forever destined to live a lonely life.
I seriously LOVE this series. Every single book has hit the mark for me because of the perfect balance of love, humour, sex, friendship, heart-break and angst that the very talented Aubrey Bondurant has brought to each story. Once again she gives us two very loveable, but complicated characters. This isn’t an easy love story. You think it might be and then bam the story changes, throwing your emotions all over the place.
Mark has featured in each book. He has always been somewhat elusive, his character quiet, sensible, yet likeable, and it was always made clear he was dealing with the loss of his fiancée. I have been looking forward to his book for ages as I just wanted to know more about him. Aubrey broke my heart with his story, but that is all I will say. What I will say is the saying about watching out for the quiet ones is true. Never read a book by its cover, Mark is a sexy dork and I loved him. As for Juliette, she is his perfect match. Where Mark is reserved, she has total verbal diarrhoea and it gets her into trouble. She adores her son and is a loyal, fun friend. She has dealt with a lot and her self-esteem is at an all-time low. So with them both weighed down with heavy baggage, will they find happiness together… well you will just have to read it and find out for yourself.
So as I conclude this review, I do so with a heavy heart. This is the final book in a series that I have adored. I took a chance on a new author when I accepted the review request for book 1, and that has turned Aubrey Bondurant into a favourite author of mine who I unashamedly facebook stalk to find out when I will get the next book. So although I am sad, I also look forward to her next chapter. With her talent at creating engaging storylines and loveable characters, it gets me all kinds of excited.
I really can’t recommend this series and indeed this book enough. Only great reads get 5 Crowns from me, but to give every book in a series 5 Crowns is a rarity. Well done Aubrey, Show Me Something is the big juicy cherry on top of the most fabulous cake.

That’s what they call me. My label ate it up until I became “too bad” for the good folks of country music. That’s when Hard Candy Records picked me up and took a chance on me. Probably not their smartest move, but I won’t tell them that. Especially when they’ve assigned me a babysitter to try and keep my ass out of trouble. One smart-mouthed, unimpressed, sexy as homegrown sin, Addy Mae Masterson.
She likes to pretend that she doesn’t like me and I like to let her.
I may have a past that haunts me and she may have a habit of getting attached, but damn if I don’t want to show her just how good this bad boy can be.
People say not to believe the things you read in magazines, but you know what? Most things you’ve heard about me are probably true.
I totally banged the reporter in the locker room after the championship game last year.
Those pictures in Expose from last summer? Those were not modified.
I’m also not really six-foot tall. (But let’s keep that between us.)
Now, I know you’re wondering about that last Expose headline—the one about me and my teammate (and ex-best friend) Finn Miller’s sister, Layla James. That one is a little more complicated.
Here’s the thing: I’ve played football my whole life. If there’s one thing I know, it’s how to adjust when the game changes. And if there’s one thing I always do, it’s find a way to win.
Granted, the stakes are higher. The playbook has changed. There’s more on the line than (another) MVP title. But guess what hasn’t changed? Me. I’m still Branch “Lucky” Best and I’m not about to fumble this one.
Grab a seat and a subscription to Expose. I’m about to make some headlines. (Again.)
My prince was a Beast with blood on his hands and ice in his veins. My family offered to save me. The only price: leaving the tattered pieces of my heart behind.
Our love was irrational. Cruel. Unforgiving. Nothing like the storybooks said it should be—but it was perfect.
The longer we were apart, the more I lost myself. He was vicious and domineering, but I craved the submission. Together we were destructive, but I was addicted to the devastation. Still, I thought titles mattered. To my family I was princess, and to the Beast I was slave. I was too naïve to understand that even though he’d been my captor, he’d broken the shackles on my soul.
Once upon a time, I thought love meant happily ever after.
A hopeless romantic.
A disheartened cynic.
An unforgettable kiss.
Caleb Anderson believes in fairy tales. At least, he wants to.
Despite battling cancer, defeating death, and an overprotective family; he believes in promises of forever, enchanted encounters, and love at first sight. He knows his perfect girl is out there …
If only he could find her.
Zadie Fisher doesn’t believe in love. At least, she doesn’t want to.
Despite undeniable attraction, second chances, and resurrected hope; she doesn’t believe in soulmates, true love, or happily ever after. Not anymore. She knows falling in love is a mistake …
If only she could avoid it.
But fate has a funny way of twisting things, and some mistakes are destined to be made.
Most fairy tales start with Once Upon A Time …
This one starts with a kiss.

I was a Master.
To understand me, you must understand my past.
My father was a Master. My mother his Courtesan.
I was raised in a business that trained women to become whores for the men that owned them. I was taught to train with a strict hand…but to seduce with a kind heart.
Although my mother was one of those golden whores, the women broken and rebuilt to become everything their owner could desire, my mother – in her wisdom and beauty – trapped the heart of her Master.
Through her perseverance, she never let the man go.
Naturally, I followed in his footsteps, not once finding love, but almost gaining a son.
My heart was destroyed on a clear summer day when my child was stripped from my hands. Redemption for my crimes was lost, and loneliness like a man should never know was gained.
Until I found Seraphina…
She thought she could deny me. She thought she could choose her fate or determine the course her life would run. She thought she would never love another because she couldn’t love herself.
With a shattered heart and rebellious mind, she believed her life was broken. She chose death as an avenue to escape the life she was given, and she believed there was nobody who could stand in her way.
