It would be hard for me to narrow it down to 10 - since I did have a lot of 5-Star read. 20 is okay, but since I turned 30 this year, I decided I'd add 10 more books to this list. These are some of the books that I have read, loved and would love to re-read if my time and work permits... these books would always sit on the top of my recommendation list! I might have cheated just a bit - but what the heck, I love all of them!

The Earl of Chase, Darcy Blake has been a loyal soldier and King’s man, not to mention a lady’s man as well. When the king suspects the beautiful actress, Amelia and her brother of treason, he instructs Darcy to spy on them: by having Amelia teaching him how to be a woman. This makes everything much easier on his part to spy on Mrs. Fox (or so he thinks). When they finally met – there were sparks all over the place. But he needed to remember the reason why he’s with Amelia in the first place, but now, he just needs to prove that Amelia was innocent. But when information came out that Amelia’s brother is somehow involved in the treacherous activities, our earl is torn between fulfilling his duties and protecting the woman he grew to love.
Less Than A Lady has a promising start. I find it quite a bit amusing for our earl who’s a rogue, learning to be a woman with Amelia as his tutor. Every lesson they have was a whole lot of fun. Despite the fact that Amelia blindly places her faith in Darcy, our earl, however, was torn. He likes the actress, heavily tempted to kiss her whenever they’re together, and yet the evidence of treason are pointing to her and her brother. Which makes everything (most especially his job), a little but complicated. I like how it all started, but somewhere in the middle, I felt that there was something lacking. It was like the characters lacked complexity, and they didn’t really develop as the story progressed. Nevertheless, the fun part of the novel somehow makes up for it. I was just glad in picked up in the last part of the novel, where the surprising and exciting twists sprouted and made this one a nice read.

Delaney wanted to be a bodyguard ever since she witnessed an act of heroism. An eye sight deficiency had her disqualified from the armed forces, so she went for the next best thing. It was hard proving herself that she can be as good as the rest of the men in the agency, but she was about to prove them all wrong. She might be a just a girl, but she can do what they do – even better.
Jax Shields may have met a lot of enemies while making a whole lot of money- but it was being at the wrong place in the wrong time that made him watched his back. He demands the best in everything, that’s why he didn’t expect that Delaney would be sent to him. How can a girl protect him?
Will Delaney be able to prove herself to Jax?
Oh she did, and she did it magnificently. What they didn’t expect was the brewing of lust and attraction and for the sparks to suddenly fly around them. Laney knew she had a job and Jax to protect, but how can she protect himself from this irresistible man?
Nak is an amazing boss. If all bosses can provide the same trust and same amount of confidence he did with Laney, the world would be an awesome place to live in. He didn’t allow her to wallow in doubts and self-pity, instead he empowered her and gave her the trust she couldn’t give herself.
It may have a sexy male cover, but this book screams of girl power from start to finish. There’s the struggle of being a woman in a male dominated world, and the fulfillment of being able to prove yourself amidst everything. I love everything about this book, and I enjoyed everything about it: their banters, the steamy scenes, the surprising twists and even Kyle.
Rating: 4.5 Stars
Grace is way different than the rest of her family. While her mother and the rest of her sisters busied themselves with beauty pageants, she busied herself as a bounty hunter. And it wasn’t an easy job, especially when her coworkers don’t take her seriously. Good thing, her boss gave her the chance to prove herself. She just has to capture Raide Knox.
There was more to Raide than what he is accused of. He might be a fugitive and on the run – but at the same time he was the hottest man Grace has ever met. But for her to catch him wasn’t easy. He was too big for her, and she’s sure he wouldn’t go down without a fight. She decided to seduce him – what she didn’t expect was for the plan to backfire…
The first time they met, there was already chemistry, and it continuously brews each time they cross-paths. It was the longest foreplay ever. The waiting was worth it. But what happens when he finds out that she was off to capture him?
I love this series because more than just steam, romance and the thrill of the chase. But it speaks about woman empowerment amidst a field dominated by male. A girl can be tough, strong, courageous, but a girl also has a heart. Just like the 3rd book that I have read first, I also enjoyed reading this one, and finished it in one sitting. It’s short, fun, a dash of drama, a lot of hot sex, and an equal amount of action.

Wicked White Series:
Wicked White (#1: Ace & Iris)

They have been together for so long, they loved each other very much, and I thought nothing can tear London and Jared apart until a tragedy struck that caused Jared to make several mistakes and broke London’s heart and him walking out of her life without any explanations.
Five years later, Jared, a former jock reinvented himself as a rock star and plays the guitar for the red-hot band Wicked White. All these time, London tried to move on but the love never really faded. She was still distraught over what happened to them. She tries so hard, but how can the heart just forget someone who owns it?
Now, Jared is back and is ready to face his past and the only girl he ever love. Is he too late? Or would their love be given a second chance?
Perhaps it was the persuasion not just from the other man or those people surrounding her. I must admit, I didn’t see that coming. I thought she was much stronger than that and not allow herself to love again or to be open to relationship unless she was ready. But here she was, breaking the heart of another person. I liked her at first, and everything she sacrificed for Jared – it was really love. What she did in the middle disturbed me a bit. Nevertheless, everything went well in the end.
It’s a classic tale of love, forgiveness and second chances.
