I’m going to break down all of the books I have read currently and let me tell you these books are the perfect quick reads and will leave you not only loving the characters but in love with how Kendall Ryan’s fictional worlds intertwine with the standalone novellas.

{Battle of the Sexes by Adriana Locke} 


Carver Jones’ partner at Jones + Gallum had to step down for medical reasons. He’s absolutely devastated. He swears. Just ignore his cheeky grin, okay?

When word reaches his fancy corner office that Gallum is replacing himself with his daughter, Amity, Carver is ecstatic.

For real this time.

Jones squashes men in the business industry flat. A woman? Pfst. He’ll be completely in charge in no time, doing whatever he wants. He’s so ready for this.

But is he ready to fight the hardest fight of his life? No, not the one to maintain control of his company. The one to keep control of his heart.

The battle may begin in the boardroom, but the war will definitely be won in the bedroom. May the best sex win.


With a CEO position in the balance Battle of the Sexes by Adriana Locke locks horns with the ladder of success and ultimately the way to the top position in a company. In a bid of traditional Battle of the Sexes is a battle of competitiveness when the current President and the daughter of currently stepping-down CEO intertwine a past connection and a current loath of situation to compete for the top position.

With the tension of the growing up in the same circles and one moment may years ago the chemistry and electricity in each interaction was utter perfection. Carver and Amity’s story was an amazing read as their chemistry and the fierce way the characters personalities were portrayed lit up the page in the best way possible. These two characters perfectly collided into each others world and it was such a fun and daring read.


{The Run In by Kelly Elliott}


Becoming the new Marketing Manager at Tate and Cane was a game changer. I was hell bent on proving I deserved this job, and that it wasn’t my cousin Sterling Quinn who had helped me score the new job title. Him being one of the CEO’s best friend—didn’t help the rumors.

Well screw that.

Ten years of sweat and hard work was the reason I was sitting in a large corner office with a killer Manhattan view. More focused than I’d ever been, it was time to take the bull by the horns.

And God help the person who stood in in my way.


Things I left behind in Seattle, Washington: A promising career at a top marking firm, the past I was desperate to escape, and obviously my sense of direction. It was because of all of those reasons I was standing in the middle of New York City lost and cursing at my phone.

If I didn’t get to Tate and Cane soon, I wouldn’t only be late, but also blow the chance to make the good impression on my new boss, Mason Quinn. And I needed that more than anything.

One wrong turn, an unfortunate collision, and an expensive suit drenched in my soy chia tea latte was not how I wanted to start my first day.

Then there was the other little problem I had. The drop dead gorgeous man whose suit I’d ruined was my new boss.

And boy did he look pissed.


First encounters often set the scene for the chemistry within a novel and man of man was Saylor and Mason’s first meeting one for the books. The Run In by Kelly Elliott is a standalone novella in Kendall Ryan’s Imperfect Love Kindle World and my heart sang with happiness when I read this novella.

Saylor’s first day working at Tate and Cane should go smoothly until she runs smack into a perfect stranger and the immediate mood changes, dealing with the jerk turns out to be only half the problem when she meets her new boss and a do-over on their first meeting is needed. Mason and Saylor’s chemistry was just as electric as their banter and I could tell from the very first page I loved these two. The build and flourishing nature of Saylor and Mason’s romance was brilliant and I loved reading their story.


{One-Night Stand-In by T. Gephart}


Sarah Madison loved working at Tate & Cane Enterprises.

While she looked and, for the most part, acted conservatively—she was a gladiator in the boardroom. The fast-paced, energetic work environment not only fed her need for corporate blood but also allowed her to work for one of her role models, Olivia Cane—living proof a woman really can have it all.

And after months of paying her dues, she was finally offered the promotion she’d been vying for. Which was great, except for the fact she had to share the position with a new guy they brought in especially for the role.

Kyle Drake was smart, experienced, and probably just as good, if not better, in negotiations. And if she wasn’t careful, prove he could do the job without her. Add in good-looking and an incredibly sexy smooth talker, and everyone in the office either wanted to be him or sleep with him. Which Sarah could have totally ignored if he hadn’t been the stranger she’d married in Vegas during a fake ceremony six months earlier.

He was supposed to be her one-night stand, a stand-in for a ceremony that wasn’t even legally binding. They were never even going to see each other again. Hell, she apparently hadn’t even known his real last name at the time. It was the only time she’d ever done something completely reckless and spontaneous.

It figured that one time would come back and bite her where it hurt.


Vegas; I’ve never been but if One-Night Stand-In by T. Gephart is anything it go by it can be a tone of fun especially when you end up in a wedding dress at a bar! One-Night Stand-In is a standalone novella that is apart of Kendall Ryan’s Imperfect Love Kindle World and after reading two other authors novellas from the kindle world series I was on a roll and ready to dive into T. Gephart’s novella and I was not disappointed one bit. Sarah and Kyle’s story was pure perfection as when they are reacquainted with each other six months by chance after a Vegas stand-in dud of a nuptials occurred. The banter between these two was lively and electric and I swear the mouth on Kyle sent me swooning and blushing as I was reading. As the two have to work on a project together flames on a fire scorch the connection and the passion when they combust and are met with their desire. Holly hot flashes. T Gephart has a way with words always and One-Night Stand-In  was yet another fabulous read. I highly recommend reading this quick, fun, sexy and perfect T Gephart novella.


{Twisted by Mandi Beck}


Three friends walk into a bar . . . One walks out the fake girlfriend of a hot, bearded Scotsman.

Fannin McGuire is up for promotion at Tate and Cane Enterprises, but first she has to make it through her stepsister’s wedding. To Fannin’s ex. Yep. Her ex-fiancé is about to be her new brother-in-law. One big happy family. And lucky her, she also gets to work with him.

While Fannin is putting all of her energy into her career, her ex is putting all of his energy into making her life hell. Just when Fannin is sure she’ll be attending the wedding without a plus one, in walks Jasper James to save the day. He’s the bartender at the Iron Flask, the account she’s trying to land, and everything she didn’t know she needed or wanted. Before Fannin knows what’s happening, Jasper is playing knight in shining armor and she likes it. And him. A lot. With his smooth Scottish accent, ridiculously good looks, and that beard? She doesn’t stand a chance.

Jasper isn’t in the habit of rescuing anyone. But when Fannin is confronted by her ex about her lack of a date for his upcoming nuptials, Jasper can’t help but step in. Her wild hair, violet eyes, and killer legs have him doing a few things he normally wouldn’t. Never mind that he shouldn’t be getting involved with the woman in charge of making the bar a global success.

Their fake relationship becomes more real than either thought it would. Now they’re at the mercy of their feelings when truths are twisted, and the lies don’t taste as smooth as the whisky.


We all need a knight and shining armour somedays. A Scottish hero and a fiercely strong heroine romance has never sizzled so much than in Twisted by Mandi Beck. Sexy, tender and captivating, Jasper and Fannin’s story was easy to fall head over heels in love with. Their connection was profound from the opening chapter and it captivated my heart and kept me wanting more until the very last words. One of my favourite things about reading Mandi Beck’s writing is that I can always here a voice whenever I read her stories and in this novella it was no difference. Jasper was truly a charmer and his connection with Fannin was developed with such beauty and creativity that I swooned more than once. I have to say I love men in books who have beards and the Scottish lad definitely earned browny points for his appearance although his heart and personality were what made me love him the most. Twisted by Mandi Beck was a perfect unique read that was written with love and the unravels in a perfect way.  It was an amazing quick read and it should come with a warning label that says you won’t put it down once you start reading! Truly did love this book!


{Tied by Kim Karr}


I was rich, single, and connected, which meant a steady diet of beautiful women wherever I went.

I really did think I had the perfect life.

Until I went and married a supermodel I’d just met, and everything changed.

Of course there were choices. But the word annulment meant giving her up, and I never give up anything. Still, I was a bachelor at heart, and having a wife, well, I didn’t really know what to do with that.

After only forty-eight hours of marriage, I had already gone and screwed everything up.

Now I have thirty days to prove to my new wife that I’m husband material. There’s only one problem—I don’t even know what husband material means. However, I’m certain that won’t stop me from excelling at it.

My wife tells me it isn’t going to be easy. That I have numerous issues to overcome.

First, there’s my jealousy. It needs to be tamed. Did I flip over the fact that her latest picture was causing men around the world to do dirty things all over the covers she graced? Hell, yes. I couldn’t help myself though. When her photo went viral, my caveman instincts kicked in, and I demanded she quit her job and stay home—barefoot and pregnant in my kitchen. I can work on that, right?

Then there’s my mother. I need to convince her that my new wife is not the money hungry floozy she called her. Did my mother actually call her that? Yes. I can’t help it that my mother wants me to get rid of my new wife. The problem is what my mother wants, she always gets one way or another. Still, turning my mother’s opinion around can’t be that hard, can it?

There are many other issues, but according to my new wife, those are minor compared to the biggest one—she says I will never be able to accept being tied down.

Don’t worry—I got this one. I intend to prove to her in no uncertain terms that being tied up, down, or horizontal is just what this Upper East Sider needs.


Instant attraction, sign me up! I love when authors dive head first into the heart of the story and allow the story to develop with twists and turns along the way! Tied by Kim Karr follows James and Lindsay and it was one of my favourite novellas to read in the Imperfect Love Kindle World series! These two just took life with both hands and the connection that they had was beyond thrilling to read. It was seductive and impulsive in the best way possible and it gave you an exhilarating ride from start to finish. Trust me, it was worth every moment.  James and Lindsay’s narrative bewitched my soul and it was intoxicating to read such a passionate and heat-filled novel. Kim Karr truly did a wonderful job at creating a narrative that was fast-paced, passionate and had a level of depth to the characters within a short amount of time. If you’re looking for a passionate instant attraction romance this book is for you, it’s quick but with a depth to the characters and their heart for each other.
