Review: Game For Love: Bad Boys of Football 3 by Bella Andre

It's been awhile since I've read a Bella Andre book, and after reading this I will definitely have to pick up the others that I've not read. This book was a pure delight and I just couldn't put it down. Cole and Anna were such great characters. I just loved watching them both fall in love.

Cole was very hot and slightly domineering at times. Don't get me wrong, I totally dug this. I love that his feelings for Anna were so intense that he went all Caveman on her a few times. I think this is what Anna needed to breakdown her walls.

When we first meet Anna she's so innocent and naive. When she meets Cole she is just trying to be anything but predictable and innocent. She has an immediate attraction to Cole, and that's not something she's felt before with others.

I really enjoyed watching these two break down their walls. Their HEA was very believable even though it happens quite sudden. I was rooting for these two as if they were my own friends. I hope the other books in this series are half as good as this was because I just could not put this one down.

ARC Review: The Amorous Education of Celia Seaton by Miranda Neville

When I first began this book and realized that the hero and heroine were on the run from kidnappers and that the hero Tarquin would have amnesia I was a little hesitant. I'm not the biggest fan of these kinds of tropes. Boy did this book prove me wrong. I loved this book. It was so enjoyable! In fact, my favorite part of the book is when they are on the run.

I completely fell in love with Terence Fish and was sad to see Tarquin regain his memory. I admit, that it took me awhile to warm up to Tarquin. I found him very pompous and quite stuck up. I did enjoy watching him transform from this type of person into someone Celia could love and trust. I thoroughly enjoyed watching him fall in love with Celia and seeing her true beauty.

Celia was a great heroine and I loved how she doesn't just roll over when things don't go her way. She is constantly thrown opstacles and it was great to see how she would overcome them all. She didn't just cower in the corner and wait for others to help her. She figured out solutions for herself. It's great to read about strong heroines, especially in historicals.

I loved watching both Celia and Tarquin fall in love. They both had such strong negative opinions of one another and it was great to see them overcome them and become more accepting and friendly towards eachother. Their love for eachother didn't feel rushed or nonexistant. I truly felt them falling in love with one another and it was great to see.

Another thing that I loved in this book was that we got to see more of Sebastian and Diana. I admit that I haven't forgotten these two at all. It was great to catch up with both of them and the rest of Diana's family. One of my favorite scenes in the book is when Celia and Tarquin show up and Diana has gone into labor and both Sebastian and Diana's father are reacting to her being in labor. It was truly hilarious and I could not stop laughing. It is definitely one of my favorite parts in the book.

After reading this book, I am extremely anxious for the next one in the series. I am really enjoying this series and I can't wait to see what happens with the other characters. Hopefully we get to see more of Diana's siblings.
