The Tycoon and the Wedding Planner -Kandy Shepherd Book Review



When one wedding leads to another… 

Kate Parker distracts herself from her memories by keeping busy—and how better than organizing weddings for Dolphin Bay's sweethearts? But tall, dark and handsome tycoon Sam Lancaster's arrival suddenly has Kate forgetting where she left the confetti…. 

And mysterious Sam will be around awhile longer than the cutting of the cake—because he's got to oversee Kate's building project! There's no time for distractions…but is it time to stop running from happiness now that it's led them to each other?



My Review 




THE TYCOON AND THE WEDDING PLANNER is another heart-warming and sweet romance by author Kandy Shepherd. Kandy knows how to write swoon worthy stories, with depth and definition. Characters that you can relate to and stories that leave you starry eyed and sheepishly happy. 


I am a lover of a contemporary romance and Kandy is certainly a Harlequin Writer queen when it comes to these. I can always expect a love story that will leave me content but also heavy and light hearted throughout the read. 

The storyline was written at a wonderful pace, giving the reader depth into the story and the characters thoughts and feelings. 

The scenery is always well envisaged with gorgeous details – including Dolphin Bay a place I’d certainly love to FIND LOVE in (sigh) 

As Always The romance is sensual and sweet, and Kandy gives the reader the HEA we eagerly await both for ourselves and the characters. Some may call it predictable but I call it fate ;) 

Sensual, satisfying, and with a tall dark and handsome spunk what more could any girl want?? ** drools * 

Kandy has created a story both intriguing and tantalizing. 

It’s funny, and quirky, romantic, passionate and filled with love, and certainly an adventure of the heart. 

Loved all the characters... Both Kate and Sam are wonderfully delivered giving the story LIFE AND LOVE AMOUNG THE PAGES.

Sweet Filthy Boy - Christina Lauren book Review




One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.

When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.




My Review ***** 


Superb, tantalizing and just smexiliscious ! 5 Amazeballs Stars ! 

My up most favourite quotes.

I want to love all of my life as much as I love this night.” 

“Life is built of these little horrible moments and the giant expanses of awesome in between.



Sweet Filthy Boy was a funny, sexy, and truly memorable story, filled with sizzling sex that will not only have your toes curling but you grinning from ear to ear. The writing was stimulating, and totally engrossing, I read this in almost one sitting. 

The character development was wonderfully delivered, the characters so real and perfect. I enjoyed every detail immensely. Even the setting within the story line.

Who would think a one night stand would change the rest of your life? 

From the bright lights of Las Vegas to Paris and France we follow Ansel and Mia’s journey. One of discovery, both sexually and emotionally. A life with a stranger, a night of pure bliss and a journey of discovery of getting to one another. Not to change one another but to learn, love and move forward. 

The chemistry between the characters is certainly off the charts, they communicate in more ways then I will reveal but be prepared for some amazing and very creative ** raises eyebrows and wipes chin**. Sex scenes. 

The story does come forth as predictable, yet somehow very real and forthcoming.

It’s filled with emotions that will not only have you squirming in your seat but starry eyed and even choked up...it will make you laugh, sigh, grin and smile.

Filthy Boy is filled with characters that will leave a place within, a story line that will have you wanting more and a realistic plot and dramas that incur within our every day lives.

Loved this story and this author is one I will continue to follow and read.



Thank you to Simon & Schuster for providing me with this book for my honest review.
