ARC Review: Skylar Anderson’s standards are high. No man is rich enough or good enough. One night she decides to break her own no-one-night-stand rule and have a tryst with a handsome stranger she meets at a bar. Cue to the next day aboard the yacht she works on as the lead steward, where she meets the new deckhand: Landon, her supposed one night stand. Will they be able to resist each other in such close quarters?

I always love Louise Bay’s writing style, and its so interesting to read about a lifestyle I can hardly imagine (Being on a yacht with full crew in the South of France?). The sparks between them were fiery, and their character development and backstories were well fleshed out. Each has their secrets but all is revealed as the story progresses.

My only negative is that there is something Landon does, in an effort to protect Skylar, that makes me want to punch him. While I appreciate his protective nature, it doesn’t make him any less of an idiot for approaching it the way he does. I still loved the book, but I was so annoyed with him by the end I couldn’t quite get over. 4/5 Stars

Official Blurb:

The last thing I’m looking for is a man. 
Scratch that. 
The very last thing I’m looking for is love.

Love isn’t something to long for, it’s something to run from. I learned my lesson young and I learned it fast. 

When Landon Wolf swaggers into my world, I just can’t see straight—he’s brooding and British, protective and provocative. So I set aside my rules for just one night.

One night that turns into a summer.

Landon Wolf needs to take his British ass back to London. This American girl is immune.

Impervious to the delicious way he says my name.

Unmoved by the way he touches me and makes every bad memory disappear.

And completely blind to his hard body, husky-like eyes and lickable jaw.

I’m not looking for love—I just hope it hasn’t found me.

Blurb:

I’m an all-or-nothing man—100 percent focused on whatever has my attention.

First it was serving my country in the Special Forces. Then it was building my business. Right now it’s the hot blonde at the bar who’s about to become another notch on my bedpost.

But women never keep my attention for more than a night.

Until I peel off Skylar Anderson’s clothes and her mask starts to crumble, showing me glimpses of the girl she’s hiding. She’s funny, sexy and vulnerable and throws me out of bed before I can catch my breath and suggest breakfast.

When I start my last undercover job on a yacht, turns out, she’s one of the crew. I try, but I can’t look away.

Her high ponytail shows off her kissable neck that tastes like summer.

Her short uniform reveals the killer legs that were wrapped around me last night.

And her provocative smile? I know what that mouth is capable of.

I want to explore her body, discover her secrets and sail off into the sunset with her.

I might want to go all in for Skylar, but she should stay away from me. I’ve got secrets of my own and they can only bring her trouble.

The Royals Collection- Louise Bay

Every book in the Royals Collection by Louise Bay can be read as a standalone, with no confusion or missing information at all. However, it personally drives me crazy to read any books that are even slightly related out of order. I don’t want to find out a couple has ended up together in another book before reading their story, even if it has no weight or bearing on the story I am reading. That being said, since these are not listed as a series on Goodreads since they are standalones, I read the fourth book in the series first and still managed to enjoy them all, even with the chaos (this is chaos for me) of reading them in a willy-nilly order.  I just found out a fifth book in the series so to make sure I had my head on straight I re-read the first four books to prepare myself.


King Of Wall Street-  Max King, King of Wall Street and oldest sibling in the King family, keeps his work and personal lives separate, until Harper Jayne joins his firm and suddenly he can’t help mixing business and pleasure.

I liked this book a lot and was certainly willing to read the rest after reading this one. Although the sex was hot, there was just something about Max that I didn’t fall in love with. I didn’t hate him he just wasn’t one of my book boyfriends. Harper also bugged me when she totally overreacts due to her daddy issues.  I get it, we all have flaws and so should our characters, but something about these two that just didn’t quite click for me. That didn’t detract from the overall enjoyment of the book, I still liked it quite a bit. I always enjoy a forbidden office romance and the fact that Max was a single daddy.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this. 4/5 Stars


Park Avenue Prince- Self made billionaire Sam Shaw spends his life with walls built around him, never letting any one new in. Old money Park Avenue princess Grace Astor wants a different life than what she grew up with and is determined to make it on her own. When she finds herself running into Sam, she realizes he may be the only one who can help her save her fledgling business, and Sam soon realizes Grace may the only one who can break down his walls.

This is my favorite of the series. There is something about a broken but loving and willing to try man (especially a rich one!) that really gets to me. His haunted past held him back previously from trying anything serious with a woman but the way he is drawn to Grace and the things he does to romance her are seriously hot. There is a ton of humor and redemption in this book. 5/5 Stars


Duke of Manhattan– When Ryder Westbury realizes he is at the brink of losing everything important to him and his family due to an old rule in his family’s trust, he realizes that Scarlett King might be the only woman who can help them. Scarlett King is about to lose the business she has spent the last two years after a devastating divorce, and Ryder offers her the money to save her business. The only catch? She’ll have to marry him and become the Duchess of Fairfax.

I love anything to do with England and the British aristocracy so this book was right up my alley.  The book goes back and forth between New York and England which are two of my favorite places in the world so I’m always happy when stories feature them. The chemistry between the two characters is strong and I loved Ryder’s family in England. This is definitely a light fun read. 4.5/5 Stars


The British Knight – Violet King was feeling lost in the world and unsure what do with her life. When her sister’s sister-in-law offers up her London townhouse,  she decides to give it a go and ends up with a job at a handsome, frustrating boss. Alex Knightley has always been determined to be the best at his job, just like his father was before him.  Nothing comes before his career- until he meets Violet King.

This one fell somewhere in the middle for me.  I love London, and there are some hot scenes, but the whole thing sort of fell a part for me when Violet overreacted to being let down- once. Instead of giving him a second chance she just overreacts and runs and I found myself annoyed with the whole thing. I still enjoyed the book but Violet is not my favorite character. 3.5/5 Stars 


The Earl of London– Darcy Westbury wants to find love, just as long as it doesn’t interfere with running her estate, helping her village, and keeping up with her family’s traditions. Logan Steele has something to prove after his father ruins his family’s legacy. After buying back his Grandmother’s estate, he needs to build something new. The two new neighbors find themselves butting heads over Logan’s proposed development, and they have to work together to find common ground.

I liked this one because there was actual conflict on each side that was believable and understandable.  The attraction between the characters was evident throughout.  There is plenty of humor, romance, and angst and the plot line remains interesting. I did struggle a bit to like Logan. I like a reformed playboy, reluctant to fall in love type hero but honestly he was just an ass about it and the way he spoke or internalized about women and his mighty sexual prowess was just gross to me. I can see how some people might like this overly confidant pompous type of guy but it does not work for me. I don’t mind dominant but not in this case.  I still enjoyed the book as a whole but Logan’s attitude definitely took me out of it.  However I did like Darcy quite a bit so it raised the overall level of enjoyment for me. 3.5/5 stars

  1. Park Avenue Prince – 5/5
  2.  Duke of Manhattan – 4.5/5
  3. King of Wall Street – 4/5
