Second Rate Chances

Sam wakes up in the hospital expecting to find his girlfriend by his bedside. Instead, he finds a bleached-blond diva, claiming to be his fiancĂ©e, hovering over him. When he learns that he's just woken up from a coma and has lost the last three years of his life, any semblance of stability he thought he had falls down around him. All he wants – all he needs – is Lil. After countless visits with her shrink and too many sleepless nights waiting for the one man she loves to walk back through the door, Lil wants nothing more than to separate herself from the life she used to have. But the moment Sam smiles at her, Lil knows it's going to take more than self-restraint to stay away. Second-Rate Chances is about a young man fighting to regain his memory, and the one thing in his life that felt real. A modern-day Samson and Delilah, it's a look at what it means to love and be loved, and to fight though it seems hopeless.

People have often told me that I live in a fantasy world. Little did they know, I was building an empire of stories in my head to one day share. I'm a mother first, a wife second, and a writer third. I'm so thankful to have been given this chance to get my stories out of my head and onto paper. When I'm not writing, I sell plumbing (no I'm not kidding) and read romances that leave my heart a flutter. I know a ridiculous amount of pop culture information and can quote certain movies word for word. Music drives me to write and to also sing off key.

Wolf With Benefits 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers. 
5 of 5 stars false 
Shelly Laurenston, New York Times bestselling author and a star in the paranormal romance genre, comes the eighth book is the successful Pride series, that blends outrageous humor and sexy shapeshifters to create irresistible heroes that readers fall in love with.
Ricky Lee has no plans of getting serious about anyone, but he will protect Toni Jean-Louis Parker. Not just because he’s been hired to do so, but because it’s the right thing to do. And if that means traveling around the country with one complicated She-jackal, dealing with chocolate-eating wild dogs, instigating trouble between his brothers, and having the most amazing sex he’s ever had…well, who said his job didn’t have perks?
Toni doesn’t know how she keeps getting herself into these situations. But even she has to admit there’s something about Ricky Lee Reed that she finds kind of interesting…and downright sexy. Now they just have to survive long enough to figure out if what they have is worth fighting for…


****NetGalley provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review.****

Toni lives in a family full of geniuses and prodigies; she takes care of her neurotic brothers and sisters. The family moves to New York so that Toni’s mother can mentor a young violinist who she is sure will be great. Toni gets a job with the shifter New York Sports center, it is perfect for her, she takes care of neurotic players. Ricky Lee meets Toni and he wants her, she doesn't have time for a relationship between feeling guilty for taking a job and trying to do that job, while taking care of her family at the same time she is run ragged. I don't want to say anymore and give away parts of the book, but hilarity and chaos ensues along with some danger and betrayal. A bunch of the characters from previous books make appearances throughout this one. The new characters are funny, eccentric, sarcastic, loving and slightly crazy. This book was written in such a way that it brought sanity to chaos; there is a huge dose of comedy that kept me laughing for most of the book. The sex scenes are scorching hot and creative. Laurenston has created another great shifter book in her series. I love this book and recommend it to any one who is looking for a good funny read.
