synopsis 2.0

Boston’s debauched elite is going up in flames, and it’s the Fitzpatrick family that set it on fire.

Hunter

I didn’t mean to star in a sex tape, okay?

It was just one of those unexplainable things. Like Stonehenge, Police Academy 2, and morning glory clouds.

It just happened.

Now my ball-busting father is sentencing me to six months of celibacy, sobriety, and morbid boredom under the roof of Boston’s nerdiest girl alive, Sailor Brennan.

The virginal archer is supposed to babysit my ass while I learn to take my place in Royal Pipelines, my family’s oil company.

Little does she know, that’s not the only pipe I’ll be laying…

Sailor

I didn’t want this gig, okay?

But the deal was too sweet to walk away from.

I needed the public endorsement; Hunter needed a nanny.

Besides, what’s six months in the grand scheme of things?

It’s not like I’m in danger of falling in love with the appallingly gorgeous, charismatic gazillionaire who happens to be one of Boston’s most eligible bachelors.

No. I will remain immune to Hunter Fitzpatrick’s charm.

Even at the cost of losing everything I have.

Even at the cost of burning down his kingdom.

review 2.0

The Boston Belles has Started off with one hell of a bang!! This book was incredible. From the banter, the Witt, hilarious sexual innuendos and the strength between Sailor & Hunter. I couldn’t put it down. The tug and pull of who is truly the hunter and who is the prey?

Hunter and Sailor are two one of kind characters. Hunter I knew since ASH was something special, he’s what I adore; a pretty playboy who’s broken. Hunter is falling apart on the inside and uses alcohol and girls to cover it up. I loved watching him pull himself up from the dirt and rebuilding himself as a strong, successful and smart man with Sailor there giving him hell & help along the way.

Once I hear Sailor would be our heroine in this book I thought initially “ok were gonna get a crazy chick, I mean she is the daughter of Sparrow & Troy”, right? WRONG!!

I was pleasantly surprised to find out our Boston princess was actually very soft. Not really a mean bone in her body (unless you truly deserved it). She was insecure, a wall flower who hid behind her obsession for archery. I loved watching Hunter pull the fire from her soul and bring out her confidence. She took none of Hunters bs and gave it back ten fold. She was a spitfire and everything Hunter needed.

This feels so much LJ yet different, funnier and lighter but still has the emotion to pull you in and devour your heart. I never thought anyone might beat our previous Viscous & Millie, but Hunter and Sailor?
They nailed their mark. This is a must read, like seriously.

I’m so exited for the rest of the Belles, it only gets better from here!

5/5 stars

Excerpt

“Why?” I asked, blinking at him in confusion. I had two left legs and the coordination of roadkill. I couldn’t dance if my life depended on it. I’d tried dancing at the only party I’d ever gone to—sophomore year—and was subjected to such thorough humiliation. People took videos of me dancing and forwarded it to half my school. Saggy Sailor, they’d graffiti-ed on my locker. Apparently, my back looked hunched and droopy when I danced.

“Because…” He tilted his chin down, his voice low, smoldering. “You’re obviously bored, and my family is watching us, and I’m partial to fondling you.”

“It’s the dress,” I muttered.

“I’d actually prefer fondling you out of it.”

I sliced my gaze sideways, noticing that Aisling and Persy hadn’t picked up on my exchange with him. They were now watching a video, probably of the reality show they were arguing about. Even though Hunter was just after a friendly dance to show his family we were getting along, I couldn’t unglue my butt from my chair.

“No fondling.” I crossed my arms over my chest, buying time.

“No promises. Get up.”

“Did you tell anyone we live together?” I accused, my eyes narrowing into slits.

He stared at me, wide-eyed, mouth parted. “Negatory.”

“Did you tell anyone we were dating?”

“This is the lamest twenty-questions game I’ve ever participated in. No.

“Well, people are talking about us.”

“That’s what people do. They fill the air with useless words to entertain each other. It’s called gossip, and it sucks all the asses in the world. Doesn’t mean it was me. Our building employs more than a hundred people. All of them work for my father. That means he’s spreading whatever the hell he wants to spread.”
