My Five Star Review:

My first jump into the Sloane Howell world was with his other Contemporary Romantic Comedy, Bossed.  I really enjoyed Bossed and it got me completely hooked on Sloane’s fun, witty and sexy writing.  Scored, is no different.  Each of these books can be read as a stand-alone but if you enjoy a good romantic comedy then I would encourage you to read both.  There are some back-stories in Bossed that make Scored even better.

Matt Stallworth, baseball playing extraordinaire, was a very unexpected surprise.  He was nothing like I expected him to be and it was wonderful to read his story, learn his history and watch him fall in love with Kelsey Martin.  Matt had some unexpected twists in his story that brought several smiles and tears to my face.  Kelsey doesn’t know much about baseball but she loves music which is why she works in a vinyl record store. She is a free spirit., living her life, and trying to figure out her place in it.  As you can imagine, Matt comes storming into her life and convinces her to “date” him when all she really wants to do is keep her heart safe.  Their story is fun, sexy, heartwarming and has a truly wonderful happily ever after.

More about Scored:

He’s a player. But she’s about to score.
Opposites really do attract* as a sassy salesgirl turns a pro athlete’s life upside down in this supercharged standalone novel of seduction from the author of Bossed.
Kelsey: My mom would tell you I’m quite the catch, but since my last boyfriend, I haven’t been dating much. Maybe it’s my rocker style or my lack of filter that intimidates the boys. So I’m pleasantly surprised when Matt Stallworth waltzes into the indie record store where I work and gives as good he gets. Turns out Matt is a professional baseball player, which should mean he’s out of my league. But if he wants to hook up with me, he’s going to have to follow my rules.
Matt: After winning my MVP award, I learned that a guy can get used to having beautiful women practically throw themselves at you everywhere you turn. But everything changes the first time I see Kelsey Martin, and something just clicks. She’s hot, snarky, and whip-smart. I’ve got to see her again. Only problem is, she sees right through all my best moves. And I’m going to have to step up my game to convince Kelsey that I’m playing for keeps.
*And sexy times ensue—for mature audiences.

My FIVE Star Review:

I love a well written romantic comedy that makes me laugh right out loud and Curious Minds totally fit the bill.  You first meet Riley Moon, a 28 year old Harvard Business and Harvard Law school graduate working as a junior analyst for a large mega bank.  It’s her second week of work and she is tasked with visiting Emerson Knight, the owner of the biggest mansion in Washington, DC, who also recently inherited his family fortune.  The kicker is, everyone considers him a “nutcase.”  What’s her job?  Convince Mr. Night that his fortune is perfectly safe within their bank.

Riley literally walks into the eccentric and aloof Emerson Knight and what are her first words? “Crap on a cracker.”  Emerson is gorgeous, 6ft 2in of lean man, wavy dark hair, dark eyes and looking like a romance cover model come to life.  When Emerson apologized to Riley for her stabbing him in the foot with her high heel shoe by saying, “Entirely my fault.  I was exercising my power to cloud your mind, so you couldn’t see me.,”  I knew I was going to love this character!  Emerson’s dialog is so very entertaining that it alone keep me turning the pages.

These two characters go on an adventure with several twits and turns and amazing additional characters in between.  I enjoyed Curious Minds so much I truly didn’t want it to end and I’m looking forward to reading more adventures with Riley and Emerson.  I would highly recommend this book.

About Curious Minds:

“Emerson Knight is introverted, eccentric, and has little to no sense of social etiquette. Good thing he’s also brilliant, rich, and (some people might say) handsome, or he’d probably be homeless. Riley Moon has just graduated from Harvard Business and Harvard Law. Her aggressive Texas spitfire attitude has helped her land her dream job as a junior analyst with mega-bank Blane-Grunwald. At least Riley Moon thought it was her dream job, until she is given her first assignment: babysitting Emerson Knight.

What starts off as an inquiry about missing bank funds in the Knight account leads to inquiries about a missing man, missing gold, and a life-and-death race across the country. Through the streets of Washington, D.C., and down into the underground vault of the Federal Reserve in New York City, an evil plan is exposed. A plan so sinister that only a megalomaniac could think it up, and only the unlikely duo of the irrepressibly charming Emerson Knight and the tenacious Riley Moon can stop it.”

City Beautiful by CM Foss

About City Beautiful:

“Patrick Thompson is all city, all the time. A young doctor, once full of passion, now disillusioned by the practice, he sets off across the country, intent on a small breather before a fresh start.
Ivy Lang loves the country way. So much so that she’s created a place where others can experience her ideas of the fundamentals for both mind and body. The life is perfect for her, carefully cultivated by her own hands.
He’s waiting for something to inspire him.
She finds inspiration all around her.
But when a chance meeting turns their worlds upside down, can they come together to create something beautiful?”

My Five Star Review:

City Beautiful is a very touching love story and emotional journey between two characters (Ivy and Patrick) who couldn’t be more different, or are they?  (City Beautiful is a Romantic Comedy suitable for readers 18+)

I really enjoyed Ivy.  She is a free spirit kind of woman who focuses on all the positives in life.  She built herself an amazing life she truly enjoys and wants to share with others.  Patrick is a doctor and your typical “city” guy who ends up at Ivy’s farm and it changes his life.

Patrick: “She was the king of beautiful I’d expect to see back home.  City Beautiful. Except there was nothing city about her.”

Ivy: “Come with me.  I’m gonna make you the best meal you’ve ever had.  It’s gonna change your life.”

Their emotional journey drew me in and didn’t let me go until I got to the end of the book. Trust me, you will absolutely love this story so pick it up today.

This is the first book I’ve read by CM Foss but it will definitely not be the last.
