Sweet on the Greek by Talia Hibbert

SOTG

Book: Sweet on the Greek

Series: Just For Him #3

Author: Talia Hibbert

Main characters: Aria Granger, tattoo artist, who’s currently masquerading as wedding planner for her best friend’s wedding. Nikolas Christou, retired athlete, now trying to figure out life after football. The only thing he knows is that he wants Aria to be part of it.

Blurb:

This soccer star is determined to win… his woman’s heart.

For millionaire footballer Nikolas Christou, one look is all it takes. The minute he sees Aria Granger, he’s a goner. Playboy Nik knows lust—intimately—but his need for Aria goes far beyond that. Of course, the plus-sized beauty isn’t interested in romance… but Nik isn’t interested in giving up.

Aria Granger has sworn off relationships for her own good. After all, her ex nearly murdered her best friend, so clearly her taste is questionable. When charming, gorgeous Nik bounds into her life, Aria can’t decide if he’s as innocent as he seems… or if her bullsh*t-ometer is broken.

The super-sweet sports star claims he needs a fake girlfriend to protect him from ‘misunderstandings’. And Aria, with her tattoos, piercings and dangerous scowl, fits the bill. But there’s no way a guy as handsome as Nik can be that bad at handling relationships. Can he?

Why you should read it: Oh my! I finished this book on New Year’s Eve, and I couldn’t have picked a better read to end 2018! Talk about ending the year on a reading high note. Where to start? We have a totally dreamy hero, who, yes,  falls victim to the insta-love, but the author manages to stay the right side of crazy. He isn’t over the top and he’s not unbelievable with it either. Aria has a lot of stuff to resolve in her life, but she doesn’t let that stand in her way. Some characters have a way of sabotaging themselves, but she doesn’t. She’s cautious and wary of being hurt, but she’s brave enough to go for what she wants anyway. The chemistry between this pair is OFF THE HOOK! It was quite a slow build and man, was it sexy as all get out. I loved the dialogue and the extra peripheral characters too. They were interesting and had depth and I wanted to know more about them.

What you may not like: I have no idea – this read is getting a rare 5/5 from me, so I can’t even tell you what you might not like…

Rating: 5/5 for a well-rounded, super sexy read. You need this book…

 

Bad for the Boss by Talia Hibbert

Book: Bad For The Boss

Series: Just For Him #1

Author: Talia Hibbert

Main characters: Jennifer Johnson, social media expert, trying to advance her career. Theo Chamberlain, head of the company and completely bowled over by Jennifer.

Plot: Jennifer Johnson has always been a good girl. She’s scored a promising role at a successful company and she’s determined to do well and keep her head down. Doing well however, does not involve lusting after the big boss.

Theo Chamberlain is master of everything he surveys and likes it that way. When he sets eyes on Jennifer, he doesn’t expect to feel so much, so quickly. His urge to simply get to know her transforms to that of protector when Jennifer becomes the target of an unknown enemy. He’ll keep her safe. Or die trying…

Why you should read it: This was a surprise of a book. It starts off as a simple office romance, but it’s packed with intrigue, secrets and suspense. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Jennifer and Theo – older men are hot, but I also enjoyed his character. He wasn’t afraid to show Jennifer who he was. The scene where he helps her with her hair is so touching – if only a guy like that actually existed!

What you may struggle with: Not much. It’s a very English story but a universal one I think – with some Caribbean patois thrown in – so you may not ‘get’ every reference, but the story is a strong one and so action-packed and I doubt it’ll slow your enjoyment.

Rating: 4/5 for a sexy and absorbing tale.
