Happy Book Birthday to @SonyaWeiss Review of The Millionaire's Forever


Sign: Gemini

There are two sides to every Gemini guy...and one of them is red-hot.

Olivia Carter has a handsome, millionaire boyfriend. She's madly in love with him. The hitch? He doesn't actually exist. She told the lie to save Forever, her wedding design shop. And it worked-almost too well. As the media attention increases, so do the demands for Olivia to produce her "boyfriend." With both her reputation and career in jeopardy, Olivia is desperate enough to do almost anything.
Which is exactly what millionaire Mason Parker wants. Thanks to Olivia and her father, Mason went through hell during his teen years, and now it's time for a little payback-starting with the announcement that he's her one and only. Now the sexy Olivia has no choice but to do what Mason wants. But none of his plans for vengeance included falling in love with the woman he planned to ruin.

Add to your Goodreads shelf.

Olivia is in a bind. The world thinks she reunited with her childhood friend and he's now her fabulous fiancé. Trouble is, he doesn't exist.

Mason Parker always had a thing for Olivia. When the local police station where Olivia's father was chief burned to the ground, Mason and three of his friends were accused. The four boys went through hell while detained and one of them didn't make it out alive. Mason vowed revenge on Olivia's father for putting them there in the first place. So what can Mason do to enact the ultimate revenge? Announce to the world that he is Olivia's mysterious fiancé.

Weiss pulled me in with the intricate back story of Olivia and Mason. I was intrigued to know what caused the infamous fire and why Olivia couldn't remember anything about that night.

Mason was hard on the outside and soft on the inside through a big part of the story. He was extremely tough on Olivia for the part he believed she played in his incarceration. Even when he finds out about the blank spots in her memory, he doesn't really let up on her. But, Olivia was her own woman and was able to stand up for herself. I liked the idea of two dominant personalities crashing together in brilliant flashes of passion and lust. Once Mason showed his true colors during a "white knight" moment, I knew the two would be able to find a way to make a relationship work. Through several rough patches, the two spark and ignite their way to a happily ever after.

The Millionaire's Forever is a quick, romantic romp full of revenge, passion, and the ultimate gratification. Love.

Thank you to Sonya Weiss and Entangled Publishing for providing me with a copy of The Millionaire's Forever in exchange for an honest review.

Tempting Tuesdays ~ Blueberry Cream Cheese Bread


Spring is coming and Easter is on the way. This week I wanted to do something with fresh berries to celebrate the change in season. I found this recipe for Blueberry Cream Cheese Bread over at Anecdotes and Apple Cores and thought it was exactly the kind of twist of the traditional that I love to feature here on Tempting Tuesdays!


1/2 cups butter (1 stick, softened)
3/4 cups sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 whole eggs
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup milk
2 cups blueberries
1 TBSP all-purpose flour
8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1 whole egg
1 teaspoon orange extract (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare one large loaf pan or four mini loaf pans. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, egg and orange extract. Set filling aside.

Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 3-4 minutes). Add salt and vanilla extract. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder. Fold in half of dry ingredients into butter-sugar mixture, then add milk, then the remainder of dry ingredients.

Toss blueberries in tablespoon of flour and fold into batter. Your batter will be thick.

Time to layer! Spread half of batter into the bottom of prepared loaf pan(s). For the 4 mini loaf pans I used about 1/2 cup of batter in each pan. Using a spatula, spread cream cheese filling on top. Spread the remainder of batter over cream cheese and bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes (for mini loaf pans) or 50-55 minutes (for large loaf pan). Allow to cool in pan for at least 20 minutes before removing. Wrap leftover bread in plastic wrap and store in refrigerator.
