Yield To Me by Sarah Castille


Amateur MMA fighter, Marcy Foster is determined to win the state championship. But dark secrets and a broken trust mean there's one submission she just can’t master. Fortunately Club Excelsior has hired a coach who knows all the right moves.

At Any Price by Brenna Aubrey
When Mia Strong, proud geek-girl and popular gaming blogger, auctions off her virginity online, she knows she'll make waves. But what she will not be making is a love connection. Her rules are set in stone: One night. No further contact. It's a desperate step, but it's the only way she can go to medical school and pay her mother's mounting hospital bills. 
Adam Drake, the enigmatic auction winner, is a software prodigy who made his first million at seventeen. Now, in his mid-twenties, he's sexy, driven and--as CEO of his own gaming company--he's used to making the rules. Before Mia knows what's happening, he's found the loophole in the rules of her auction. Every stipulation she's made to protect her heart gets tossed by the wayside. 

Closure by Kim Carmichael
There's always the one…He's one person throughout life you think about every so often, the one who leaves his unique indelible mark on you, the person with whom you need closure. For Margaret Collins that person was Mike Taylor. After he broke her heart seventeen years ago, she left everything she knew and reinvented herself. With a new home, a new look and a new name, Riley Williams is now an up and coming journalist given the assignment to interview a Mike Taylor. She never suspected he would be her Mike Taylor. With Mike having no hint of Riley's true identity, she must decide if she will make him pay for sins he doesn't remember committing, or if she can wipe away the past and be with the one man who she has always wanted?
Devil’s Kiss Trilogy by Gemma James
Kayla Sutton faces a question no mother wants to face: what would you do to save your daughter? Broke and desperate, she siphons thousands from the company she works for to pay for her daughter’s life-saving treatment, but when Gage Channing discovers her theft, she learns her boss has no intention of turning her over to the police. Instead, he issues an ultimatum—submit to him, or go to jail. As her daughter’s life hangs in the balance, Kayla must dig deep to find the strength to travel down the path of pain and pleasure. But when her past catches up to her, prompting a free fall into forbidden territory with a man she once loved, she knows her only recourse is to come clean and beg her Master’s forgiveness. INCLUDES: Ultimatum, Enslaved, Retribution.

Just Another Day At The Office by Hedonist Six

John is used to being ignored, or worse, by the opposite sex. When new girl, Cath, tries to get his attention, he reacts in the only way he knows how: with suspicion. Can she convince him he truly is the man of her dreams?

Summer’s Journey by Summer Daniels

Join Summer on her journey of sexual self-discovery; a well written, intelligent and sexy series about the beginning of her sensual, sultry love affair with life, and all the joys of being a woman.

I've already read and LOVED Hedonist Six's Another Day At The Office. Check out what I had to say about that lovely book!

I absolutely LOVED this!

Normally, I don't go for contemporary romance for the following reasons:
- amazingly gorgeous people falling in boring love
- they're too damaged to trust love or to be in a relationship, but they're going to torture us through it anyway
- the guy is always a modern day prince charming, I honestly think they're going overboard and becoming weirdly specific, it can't be long until we see "The Billionaire Dom Jaguar-Shifter Sheik Body-builder's Pregnant Girlfriend" hit the stores
- I can't connect with the characters at all, they're always overdramatic, every day there's something dreadful that makes their love impossible
- Almost none of the events are even remotely realistic

Not this book! 
We meet Cath, who is having a job interview with her creep of a future boss and takes a peek at the yummy guy sitting in another office.
That guy is John. John is overweight and has been going through a bad break-up. He lacks confidence. He was taunted and bullied throughout his school years for being overweight.

Here's the thing, I don't mind chubbier guys at all. Oh, I'd take the muscular guy, the skinny guy, the whatever guy - as long as I found him attractive and we had things in common. As long as we clicked. As long as he was nice, trust-worthy, and I liked him.

This is something that usually only shows up in reverse in contemporary romance: the chubby new girl that all men suddenly want - and that's great! People get so much crap thrown at them, they need these feel good books! And honestly? In real life I assure you there is always someone who sees that chubby girl and loves everything about her - because that's how love works. You love everything about a person because you love them. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

So it's nice to see some chubby men get appreciated as well. And John was so sweet, so honest, so earnest! How could anyone not want him?!

His romance with Cath was completely believable and really, really hot!

I need to get my hands on this author's other books!
