❤❤ Michelle's 4 star reviews of Step by Step and Hour by Hour by Natalie Wrye ❤❤

Step by Step (Games & Diversions #1)

I’ve simplified my life into a three-part process:

I binge—I fuck—I come…until I come to my senses.

That’s what my world has been ever since she came into my life. 
And I was perfectly content with it staying that way…
Until I actually met her.

Mouthy dancer.
Blonde bombshell.

My best friend’s soon to be sister-in-law.

Enemies before we’d ever laid eyes on each other, we were a match made in Hell—a cautionary tale of how not to get along.

But when the spark between us sets our passions ablaze, how do we prevent the unexpected matches from turning our flame into an inferno?

***This novella is Round 1 of a Three-Round series***
Round 2 begins December 1st, 2015.
The FINAL round starts January 19th, 2015.

Hour by Hour (Games & Diversions #2)

My head says, “Fuck Lukas Griffin.” 
My clitoris says, “Go ahead!”   

I gave in to him, submitted myself to our fiery passion… and it blew up in my face. 

I can’t afford to do this again—not when he holds all the cards. Not when he makes all the rules.   

He’s lured me into a game—a game I’ve never played. 
A dangerous one.  

And if I raise the stakes and place another bet on him, will he burn me again?

Step by Step---This is my first read by this author and I was not disappointed! Lukas is a sexy man with a cocky attitude who thinks he's every woman's dream. Elena is a beautiful woman with a take charge attitude who doesn't take any crap from anybody. I love how she tells what's on her mind and what she thinks. Their attitudes constantly clash which hopefully will lead them to a steamy romance. This first installment in the series ends in a cliffhanger and I can't wait to see what the second installment has in store for Lukas and Elena!!

Hour by Hour---I have just finished the second installment in this series and have so many mixed emotions. Let me start by saying, that none of these mixed emotions deterred me from finishing or not have me anxiously waiting for the next book! Lukas and Elena can make you angry, excited, confused and happy within a blink of an eye, and it definitely makes you want to read more just to see how their story unfolds. When you are hoping and waiting for a happy ending that you aren't sure is even going to happen definitely will put you on edge. That's a part of the reason why this book is good, you don't have any idea what will happen next. I got so excited when I thought there may be a breakthrough in their steamy on and off occasional hookups, but was still left with an it may not happen feeling. I didn't want to put the book down because I was constantly trying to guess what was coming next and wanting to read to see if I guessed right. This book ends in a cliffhanger as well and I cannot wait to see what will happen with Lukas and Elena in the next one!

These were 4 star reads for me


Check out the 3rd book in the series, Minute by Minute, releasing January 19th 2016.

Lukas Griffin

I'd heard that chess was a game made for the Gods of Men.

You are not a God… you’re just a man.

But even you can make the rules…

Rule no. 1 Trust no one. 
Not even the ones you like.
Not even the ones you love.
Especially not the ones you love.

Rule no. 2 Do not fuck the irritating blonde. 
Not even if she asks.
Not even if she begs.
And she just may…

Rule no. 3 FUCK THE RULES. 
To Hell with them.
Set fire to them and watch them burn…
Realize that under the right circumstances, everyone is capable of betrayal.
Even you…
