The Dirty Bits from Carina Press: what you want, when you want it. Over-the-top sexy microromances designed to be read in an hour or two.

 

So I already loved novellas because they are just fun, quickies. But Carina Press is releasing some amazing dirty bits and this one from K. Webster is no exception.

Mr. Quinn Blakely got burned badly by his now ex-wife. He also has full custody of teenage twin boys.  He’s running a successful marketing company. He’s exhausted.  He needs help. Enter Ava.

Ava is one of those characters that you just find yourself rooting for. She works hard. She’s somewhat unassuming. She hasn’t really dated anyone before. We even learn about a stunt that a teenage boy pulled on her in the past. I found a lot of similarities between myself and Ava. I wanted her to find happiness.

The sparks between Quinn and Ava were immediate. They have a common bond in their love of the french language. Quinn has traveled to France when he was younger, but Ava is hoping to save her money to go there on a trip. This sounds like a silly point to mention in a review but this is where we really see the two characters bond.

I really enjoyed this story. There was actually a point where I teared up just because of the amazing connection these two have (and that doesn’t normally happen to me). I’ve been thinking of re-reading this one already too. Again, I don’t normally do a bunch of re-reads (just don’t have the time). This dirty bit from Carina Press and K. Webster is a must read and definitely one of my favorite stories of all time!

CEO Henry Osbourne has only ever desired one woman—the one who got away. New York Timesand #1 ebook bestselling author Alexa Riley returns with Don’t Go, a virgin-hero insta-love contemporary romance in the For You series

I’ve spent the past ten years convincing myself that what I felt for her was teenage infatuation. That love so consuming couldn’t be real. Then everything went to shit, and in an instant, she was gone.

Kory Summers knew returning to New York meant running into Henry. The way her heartbeat picked up at just the thought was nervousness—not anticipation. Oh, no. She never expected to find him on her doorstep looking as handsome as ever.

She’s mine. She always has been. I’ve waited this long for her…but time’s up. I’ll use all my power, all my connections, to convince her she’s the one.

Kory ran from a boy, but a man of power and persuasion now stands in his place.

I really loved this novella. I wanted to make that sound fancier but the truth is that I enjoyed this novella a lot. It was a perfect combination of sexy and romantic, while keeping the alpha male that Alexa Riley readers know and love.

Henry and Kory met in high school. Henry had been watching Kory and finally worked up the courage to ask her to prom. But things don’t always go as planned.

One thing I enjoyed about this story was Kory was so intelligent and respected herself. We see this incredibly smart high school girl, and then we see her in the future, and she is just as smart and quick-witted. She’s only grown into herself more, and I appreciated that. It was great development for a character in a novella.

Henry’s character is really sweet. He’s romantic, but it never comes across as cheesy. It always felt genuine. Of all the books I’ve read from this author (and I’ve read a lot), this couple and their love story is probably one of my all-time favorites.

If you’ve enjoyed this author already, or you’ve been reading their “For Her” series, you will definitely want to check out this novella.
