Review: Real Man by A.S. Green

"My hands are a little dirty at the moment. I'm trying hard not to get grime on your clothes. Touch yourself. I'll watch." - Michael DaBruzzi

A broken-down Mercedes is not what lawyer Claire Sweeney needs at this particular moment in time. The mechanic sent to collect her, though, is just right: tall and solid—a real man.

The kind of guy who shows you how he is in bed just by the way he walks.

Michael DaBruzzi assumes he knows all there is to know about Claire. Silk blouse, pencil skirt, take-me heels. She’s rich. An elitist. Probably never lifted a finger to do any real work her whole entitled life.

Definitely not a screamer.

But Claire’s hiding a lot under her fancy clothes and composed facade. From the moment she climbs into his truck, Claire’s out to show Michael the truth: she’s no princess, and she’s not afraid to get dirty.

This is one bad boy who’s fit to print.

Barrett: As a former pro football star, I’m used to playing the field. After injuries cut my NFL career short, my second act as a broadcaster ended on live television when a hot mic picked up a little verbal . . . indiscretion. But this latest publicity stunt might just land me back on top—much to the chagrin of Catarina Everhart, the prissy, beautiful journalist who’s been assigned to date a bad boy (i.e., me) and write about it. Catarina swears I’ll never touch her, let alone kiss those full lips of hers. Based on our chemistry, I’m not buying it. . . .

Catarina: Barrett Fox seems to be doing everything in his power to make me hate him. The cocky egomaniac is infamous for his bad behavior, and now, thanks to my boss’s harebrained schemes, he’s apparently my problem. As one fake date leads to another, I start to see a different side of Barrett. He’s close with his family. He does volunteer work. And, okay, he kisses like a dream. Am I really dating Barrett Fox? Or is he playing me? Because suddenly I’m risking my reputation—and my heart.

Crystal Memes: Revisiting My Favorite Book


Hello friends! This week's topic from Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer's Book Blogger Hop was one that I've thought about for awhile now -- could you ever pick a favorite book or is it like choosing your favorite child? Since I like to do things a little differently, I put a twist on my answer. Instead, I want to chat a bit about one of my all-time favorites books that I actually read when I was 14.

Pop sensation and Hollywood star Katherine Hayes has worked hard to maintain her squeaky-clean image. But with nude photos going viral on the internet, the ensuing smear campaign threatens to ruin everything.

A chance meeting with a handsome college professor–who’s adorably clueless about her identity–is a rare break from the stress. But when shocked recognition dawns in his eyes, her survival mechanism kicks in. She can’t simply let him walk away to add grist to the rumor mill.

Josh Randall has already loved and lost his soulmate. Yet when he witnesses Kate in a vulnerable moment, he can’t deny the pull between them. Even though he believes down to his bones that true love doesn’t come twice in a lifetime.

A no-strings fling sounds like the perfect solution. But Kate never expected Josh to see the woman hiding behind the celebrity–or that the paparazzi would catch on to their sizzling passion so quickly. Making it hard to keep their tangled emotions from tearing their hearts apart when it’s time to say goodbye…

SHE ACCIDENTALLY CATFISHED THE PERFECT GUY. 
BUT WILL HE EVER LOVE THE REAL HER?

Dr. Jack Reed has been through hell. His wife cheated on him, broke his heart, and lied for years. But moving on isn’t easy, and it’s impossible to trust women again. Until he meets Macie, a nurse at his new hospital. There’s something about her honest heart that makes him want to fight to get his life back.

Nurse Macie Franklin was always known as “the fat girl.” After decades of failed diets, she doesn’t dream of ever being anything but invisible to the opposite sex. One moment of weakness and two glasses of bubbly later, she’s in a steamy online chat with “Dr. J-Love” as the fake, size 8, bubbly Catrina.

Their passionate conversation convinces her it’s time to make big life changes. But when she goes to see Dr. Reed, the new amazing surgeon everyone’s talking about, it’s Dr. J-Love! And he’s way hotter in person.

They hit it off a second time as friends, but now Macie’s heart is at risk of falling hopelessly in love. Will he ever love the real her back?
