Book Review: A Lot Like Love Series (YA Sexy Contemp)

I don’t read much YA and NA, so when I do. . .

it should be Sexy and Smart as hell.

The A Lot Like Love series really

grabbed me and kept my attention!

      

(Without giving away mega spoilers)

In Book One a new love begins between an alpha football player

who has really really really had a rough childhood.

This cutey meets an unlikely (yet quirky) girl that knocks him off of his feet.

Now here’s where things get different from the usual romantic plotline—->

you have all of these friends that cause or stop trouble between them.

 

And you have TWO MAJOR EVENTS that rock everyone’s world (including mine).

Book One was an emotional roller coaster ride.

You’ll need to light some candles for this book and maybe have a bottle of wine resting next to you.

 

________________________________________________________________

 

Book 2 in the A Lot Like Love series picks up in college. There are a lot of new things going on. We have our hero who is struggling with a new level of football and a secret that goes viral. I would say this book had me shaking my head a lot at the hero.

I mean. . .

Luke??

Brother??

For real?

Then we had an unexpected triangle that I enjoyed, but made me tense as hell. I mean I loved the other love interest, but. . .I opened the book for My Couple.

therefore, I pretty much stressed the last half of the book and went back and forth on what I wanted.

 

Needless to say there is a happy ending and the book is full of hot, angsty romance that deals with real issues for college freshmen. I definitely see a book 3 on the way due to a certain person not winning the love triangle.

Chapter 1

Carmen

I walked in on my stepson jacking off into my red shorts.

Oh. My. God!

The day had been a simple one—breakfast with the aforementioned stepson, morning run, and relaxing shower afterward. Now, I didn’t think the day would continue as planned. For one thing, I needed to talk to my stepson, preferably with his clothes on and dick concealed. Adrian was supposed to be at work with his father, not in my bedroom stroking himself with my running shorts.

And he still doesn’t know I walked in. Oh God.

Still wearing his suit and very much masturbating, Adrian’s eyes were closed as he whispered, “Oh Carmen. Like that.”

And I stood there with nothing to say or no logical thought to lead me on. My shocked expression stared back at me in the mirror across the room. Drops dotted my brown skin and soaked my black hair. An astonished look plastered on my face.

Adrian’s words came out in a low grown. “Carmen, baby.”

I turned back to him.

What the . . .

His eyes remained closed while he sped up his strokes. In his hand, my shorts flapped back and forth with the movement.

Okay. You can deal with this. You can do it.

Thankfully, my stepson was an adult. If he’d been a kid, then I would’ve really had problems.

“Like that,” whispering, he worked his cock. “Just like that.”

Shame hit me as my panties moistened.

Get control of yourself, girl! This is not cool.

Unfortunately, Adrian was hot.

CHRIS EVANS WIFEBEATER

It didn’t matter how twisted this was. To my body, a gorgeous man jacked off into my shorts and moaned my name. My hormones refused to ignore this, while my mind did its best to hush their cries for a taste.

He’s Nick’s son. Not going to happen. . .

 When the Smoke Clears

Reason I wrote it:  I wanted to explore how people use love to heal pain.

Summary

A firefighter meets an author struggling with writer’s block and divorce. I think this is a good start because it’s one of my most recent novel with lots of praise from fans. It was a cathartic experience writing it because I put a lot of my open  experiences and emotions into this one.

Additionally, this is a great example of my recent craze for meta-fiction. The author writes a paranormal romance within the novel, between a witch and a demon.

***No mystery, but there’s tension.

***Lots of hot scenes. The romance takes it’s time, but the characters are pretty freaky.

Chasing Love Series

18807658      20871793      26229617

Reason I wrote it: I became totally addicted to Sylvia Day’s BARED TO YOU series. I remember wishing that there was a mystery in it and . . .some black people. 🙂

Summary

I love to merge my favorite genres together–romance and mystery. Add a high-end luxury setting, an alpha that doesn’t accept no, and a independent heroine that loves to do it her way, and now you have a Kenya Wright novel. Tons of twists! 

Super sexual tension.

tumblr_mifjupVy4o1r043lfo1_500

***Book 1 starts the mystery that grows and gets monstrous as the series continues. Book 1 isn’t blood. Book 2 and 3 get pretty raw. And. . .people do die in this book.

No Ordinary Love

unnamed (7) (1)

Reason I wrote it:  I’ve always wanted to write about erotic asphyxiation and also set an interracial romance in Tokyo.

Summary

Hot Sex in Japan with a Mysterious Alpha. I did tons of research on Tokyo. Loved writing this!

I think this is a good novel to come down from the Chasing Love series high. And for those that didn’t enjoy An Arrangement of Love, this is a good one to dig into next.

Reason I wrote it:  I wanted to explore mental illness’s link to creative genius.

Summary

Rock star romance between friends that are children of rock legends.  The hero Jude is slowly making his own name and rising to the top. The heroine suffered a serious trauma that makes her a bit. . .looney.

It’s fun and hot, but at times pretty twisted.

Roman had the kind of face that stroked the wicked parts of the body—ripe lips, tanned skin, midnight hair and a smooth grin. Strong and defined, his cheekbones made me want to nibble them.

His jaw was a work of art in a deep, catastrophic way, because although it was beautiful I wanted to do so many naughty things to it. Things that one didn’t do with a human jaw. I wanted to rub my sex all over its angular length until I came. I wanted to use my nipples to trace circles all over it. I wanted to fuck him hard. I wanted to bite. I wanted to gnaw. I wanted to grip his bed sheets and moan as he moved on top of me.

Reason I wrote it:  I wanted to explore all of the great sexual orgies in history.

Summary

If Eyes Wide Shut and The Da Vinci Code had a one night stand in a dark alley while it was raining, then this novel would be there baby. The main setting of this story is a masquerade ball where sex lathers every inch of the castle, and all masked guests are welcome to explore any desire

Summary

How far should someone go for love?

By now, I have your trust to take you on a darker path in romance. This duet deals with a serial killer called CUPID. I won’t sugarcoat this series. There’s some gory scenes, but not many. Super dark and twisted, but really a pretty fucking amazing pair of books.

I co-wrote these novels with Jade Eby.
