blurb

Fabulist (fabyələst): a liar, especially a person who invents elaborate, dishonest stories

After losing her job and her apartment, Samantha Wittaker takes a leap of faith when she tries out for The Fabulist, a new reality TV show promising a prize well worth the risk. Her sexy, tough as nails personality attracts more than just the attention of the producers. She also catches the eye of a couple of contestants as well as a hot, challenging cameraman.

The twists and turns of reality TV are like nothing she ever even imagined. Deception, danger, love and lust lurk at every turn.

Sometimes people lie. They lie to save themselves or to cover a truth. They lie to protect feelings or to protect hearts.

Not all lies are bad. Or are they?

Can Sam play the game or will the game play her?

review

What do you get when you take reality TV, mix it with forbidden love, throw in some twists and turns and add a whole bunch of creativity? The Fabulist by Dawn L. Chiletz.

Samantha “Sam” Wittaker is going through a rough patch. She recently lost her job and is residing on her best friends couch. So when Carmen, her best friend, suggests they try out for a new reality TV show, Sam is hesitate. This new show, The Fabulist, is not your typical reality show. You’re not there to find love, or try to survive on an Island- you’re there to compete in different challenges where you have to figure out what is the truth and what isn’t. However, the winner of the show receives a job and money.

Since Sam needs both those things, she agrees. Plus it doesn’t hurt that she has a knack for being able to read people.

But once she makes it on, she starts to realize the show, the challenges, and the other contestants are nothing like they appear to be. Throw in the fact she has a attraction to the camera man- a man who is off limits. Which is too bad, because Sam can’t deny the chemistry between them is sizzling hot.

Will she be able to keep her focus off Hogan and on the challenges? Or will her attraction blind her from the truth?

First of all, hands off to Chiletz for coming up with this concept. Not only did she create a completely original concept in The Fabulist, but also the really cool, mind twisting challenges the contestants have to go through on it. The creativity she had was incredible, and I was completely hooked. It’s really hard for me to thoroughly explain this show without giving too much away, but trust me when I say it’s nothing like you’ve seen.

 I loved how Chiletz has a way of describing things so you can picture it perfectly in your head, yet you can use your own imagination at the same time. The story flows really well, the writing is great, it held my attention the entire time.

I  also loved (and hated) the other contestants and I was super impressed how they all had their own voices and big personalities that never wavered.

Now let’s talk Sam and Hogan. Sam is attracted to him right off the bat, and it appears that Hogan is too. However, she’s a contestant and he’s the camera man, so it’s a big no no. However, since they are always around each other, a friendship starts to grow, filled with the most delicious sexual tension.

There are also a bunch of twists and turns in there that take you on a mind trip. Just remember, things aren’t always as they seem….

If you like romance that comes with suspense and mystery- something that really makes you think and form theories- this is the book for you.

THIS COVER! ❤

blurb

The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office.I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.

Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office.  He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.

Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent.

I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.  In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place.

I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients.  But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind.

I never expected my body to react every time we argued.  Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships.  And my job was to help people save their marriages.

The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.

And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

blurb

He’s the guy no one likes…

Despite winning two national championships, JR “Ace” Anderson was sent packing from his old school after losing the trust of his coach. At Southern U, he has a second chance to prove that his college legacy isn’t endless debauchery and selfishness. But his reputation precedes him, and his teammates offer a chilly welcome in the locker room. The one person who is willing to accept him is the very woman he should stay away from—his new coach’s daughter.

She’s the girl everyone loves…

Bryant Johnson’s only goal in life is to make others happy, even at her own expense. One look at her father’s new star quarterback, and she knows that Ace is her next project. With a reputation for being a “jerk whisperer”, Bryant has spent her last three years at college reforming sorry behavior and turning bad boys into the best boyfriends ever. In Ace, though, she’s met with surly resistance and a sizzling attraction she doesn’t expect. Fixing this wounded warrior will be her biggest challenge yet. Not falling for him will be even harder.

Between her big heart and his damaged one, a battle is ensuing. In this game of love, every defense will crumble.

blurb

I just met the girl of my dreams.

Megan Davenport is funny and smart, and she’s as much of an insomniac as I am. She’s also my team captain’s little sister, which I only found out after our passionate kiss.

Megan is completely off-limits—her brother makes that very clear—and I know better than to think I can keep a relationship going during hockey season anyway. But that doesn’t mean we can’t be late-night friends, right?

The only problem is, love makes you do crazy things, like breaking all the rules.

review

I was so excited to start reading this book. I’m a huge fan of Cindi Madsen and the Taking Shots series, so I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed. Crazy Pucking Love is everything I thought it would be- witty, romantic, hot enough to melt the ice- and then some!

Megan Davenport is a girl on a mission. She just started college and is determined to find herself and take control of her life. Experience new things. No more doing everything someone else says, no more trying to change herself to fit what other people want. Alright, and she might just be on the lookout for a guy that can fit her boyfriend criteria. So when her roommate invites her along to a party, Megan decides to give it a go. There she meets Dane, (in one of my favorite scenes ever) and has a insta-crush on him.

Dane Kowalski doesn’t realize the hot girl he is flirting with is off-limits. Not until after he kisses Megan does he realize that she is the little sister of his teammate AND caption, Beck. It’s for the best anyway- he is in no position to have a girlfriend, and Megan seems like relationship type. Still, he can’t seem to stay away from her, especially after he discovers they both have trouble sleeping and are up most nights into the late hours.

Megan knows she can’t be with Dane. He’s made that more than clear. And even though she typically doesn’t like hockey players, she can’t stop her crush from growing- even after she agrees to be just friends. As their friendship goes on, they get closer and closer, and the sexual tension gets stronger and stronger. And even though the cons out weigh the pros, they both start to wonder ‘what if?’.

I just love Megan. I love that she is quirky and fun, beautiful and a bit of a math dork. Cindi Madsen writes the best female characters, always smart and beautiful, with a dash of quirkiness. Megan has been through a lot so does seem more mature at times, then other time she shows her age, which I appreciate. She felt like a real college freshmen to me. I loved her relationship with Beck, as well as with Lyla.

Dane was a bit more complex. He was a nice guy with a good heart, even though he doesn’t realize it. He is kinda hot and cold with Megan, with is frustrating at times, but it also made you really feel what Megan is feeling. He isn’t doing it to just be an ass, he has real reasons for his battle between his brain and heart.

Their friendship is everything. So adorable. However, the attraction between them is obvious, so even if they start off as friends, it’s clear they both want more. The chemistry between them is sizzling hot, I loved reading their journey.

It was also nice to see some familiar faces of the past couples, Beck & Lyla and Hudson and Whitney.

If you love sports romance- or even just cute college romance- this is a book you don’t want to miss! I mentioned it is part of a series, but can be read as a standalone.
