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
Bio / Social MediaSite
Lauren Billings (but everyone calls her Lo) has a Ph.D. in neuroscience and before she made writing her full-time job, would spend her days doing nerdy research-type things wearing a lab coat and goggles. She is silly Mommy to two littles, wife to one mountain biking homebrewing scientist, bestie to a shoe-stealer, and an unabashed lover of YA and romance.
Christina Hobbs (but you’ll always hear Lo call her PQ) used to spend her days in a junior high counseling office surrounded by teenagers. Married to the cutest boy in school, she has a thirteen year old daughter, is an unapologetic lover of boy bands and glitter, and also likes to steal Lo’s shoes.

Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Mia is in Vegas with her friends and meets Ansel. He asks her to join him in Paris for the summer. Will Mia follow her sweet filthy boy?
Im gonna pretend I didnt read the first 25%.(view spoiler)[ The insta lust, drunken marriage, blackout sex and going to Paris with a stranger didnt sit right to me. It was reckless and dangerous. (hide spoiler)]
Despite how they met, their connection grew on me and I really enjoyed the rest of the book. I was worried the sex scenes were meh to begin with, but then the sexy time got hotter and hotter. I liked sweet Ansel but he messed up big time and I havent fully forgiven him yet.
If you are a fan of the Beautiful Bastard series this book may be for you. It was full of sexy steam, a bit sweet n a bit funny. x

It Ain’t Me, Babe
Sinning never felt so good…
A fortuitous encounter.
A meeting that should never have happened.
Many years ago, two children from completely different worlds forged a connection, a fateful connection, an unbreakable bond that would change their lives forever…
Salome knows only one way to live—under Prophet David’s rule. In the commune she calls home, Salome knows nothing of life beyond her strict faith, nor of life beyond the Fence—the fence that cages her, keeps her trapped in an endless cycle of misery. A life she believes she is destined to always lead, until a horrific event sets her free.
Fleeing the absolute safety of all she has ever known, Salome is thrust into the world outside, a frightening world full of uncertainty and sin; into the protective arms of a person she believed she would never see again.
River ‘Styx’ Nash knows one thing for certain in life—he was born and bred to wear a cut. Raised in a turbulent world of sex, Harleys, and drugs, Styx, unexpectedly has the heavy burden of the Hades Hangmen gavel thrust upon him, and all at the ripe old age of twenty-six—much to his rivals’ delight.
Haunted by a crushing speech impediment, Styx quickly learns to deal with his haters. Powerful fists, an iron jaw and the skillful use of his treasured German blade has earned him a fearsome reputation as a man not to be messed with in the shadowy world of outlaw MC’s. A reputation that successfully keeps most people far, far away.
Styx has one rule in life—never let anyone get too close. It’s a plan that he has stuck to for years, that is, until a young woman is found injured on his lot… a woman who looks uncannily familiar, a woman who clearly does not belong in his world, yet a woman he feels reluctant to let go…
Dark Contemporary Romance/New Adult Novel. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up*

It Ain't Me, Babe by Tillie Cole
Salome was born to help the elders get closer to God. She runs away, injured she stumbles upon Styx, a guy she had an encounter with years ago.
I have yet to read a MC book like this especially with the heroines background, very unique. I thought the male POV was done really well.
But... I didnt realise there would be heavy religious/cult references. There was quite a few subplots going on and I was confused where the main focus of the book was. And also I wasnt feeling the connection between Styx and Mae.
Overall I liked the MC and shocking parts. But the cult and romance parts not so much. Worth a try if you are looking for something a bit different.
