    4 stars!Review and Excerpt at Of Pens and Pages.Let me tell you a story about a girl who underestimated a book. She took a certain book at face value and saw it as a mere romantic comedy. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. The girl absolutely loves romantic comedies. But then she read it and got so much more than what she expected. The story had amazing characters, fantastic banter, and sizzling sexual tension, but there was also angst ...

    4.5 ‘never again’ starsVery interesting and well-written book with absolutely bizarre plot.First 10% of the story didn’t make much sense to me. But…this book has an absolutely incredible, complex, strong and amazing heroine.Floved this woman. Not always badass warrior on the outside; a vulnerable, but very strong woman with a steel backbone. Very smart and sassy; closed, but still warm and friendly; sarcastic and self-confident, maybe a b...

    4.25 StarsThis is a love story between a wealthy businessman, Henry Locke; a jewelry designer, Vicky Nelson; and Smuckers, a toy Maltese. “So. Fucking. Romantic.”Okay, so it’s not really a three way love story between man, woman, and dog. Although there is that Smuckers incident. Hmm... With a name like Smuckers it has to be good. *wink*It’s really a heartfelt romance with touches of humor. (Like Smuckers has to pee.) Anyways, Henry’s b...

    *So an eccentric mother wills the company to her dog, instead of her son. And the heroine is the dog's spokesperson. -----Now that's what made me grab this book.*This starts the love-hate kind of game between the hero and the heroine. He tries to bribe her, trick her, seduce her. But she is quite adamant. -----I don't know why but I did felt that why was she being such a stubborn ass as she can herself see that its the hero's company and his hard...

    The synopsis of Most Eligible Bastard instantly grabbed me, and I knew I needed to read this one. Everything about it screamed ‘read me’. Laughter was promised. Romance I could ship was promised. A wonderful story was promised. Plus, it would finally give me my introduction to Annika Martin. A few times I have looked at Annika Martin books and thought ‘this sound interesting’ but I never did pick them up – after this, things are about t...

    I REALLY enjoyed reading this book. It's an enemies to lovers story you are going to love!! The story is interesting from beginning to end and for those people that feel it's important for an HEA, this is the book for you!! The slow burn drove me crazy but I enjoyed every moment of it!! I laughed out loud and there was tension that made me catch my breath and my heart beat faster, not to mention the very hot, pulse pounding sex!! I definitely rec...

    This book is adorably hot and cute. The plot line is a bit predictable, but still... I had a lot of fun reading it. :)I loved Henry and Vicky. I hated Vicky at times but given the circumstances maybe it was alright.I would have loved it if the ending was done a little better. It was too abrupt for my liking. But I love what Henry did for Vicky. And it was still a great read.

    2.5“You like my hands,’ he says, undoing another button, revealing the top of my camisole. ‘You’re going to like them even better when they’re between your legs.”I enjoyed the banter between the main characters. It was cute, the heroine was cute, the whole story screemed cute.BUT the dog thing... sadly I didn't like it. It felt over the top.
  • Lori ~ BF Bookies
    What a fantastic read! This was fun, it was sexy, and I didn’t want to put it down. Henry is thee most perfect asshole-ish bastard. Handsome, wealthy, powerful, and... caring? CEO of the family business, he’s used to getting his way. And he’s not at all happy about the newest board member. Vicky, who is hiding from her past, mistakenly gets labeled as a dog whisperer and thrown into a situation she’s not too thrilled about. Tired of being...
  • Treena
    DNF after 35%The blurb of the book makes this book sound way more interesting that I actually found it to be. I couldn't take the absurdity of keeping up with the whole dog whisperer charade and all the "drama" arising because of stupid decisions by the MC's. It got way too much for me to go on reading.
  • Jen (That's What I'm Talking About)
    Vicky works hard to provide for her sister and keep their modest life running smoothly, even when it means pretending to be a dog whisperer for the unpleasant and lonely Bernadette Locke. However, when Bernadette passes away leaving her fortune to her dog Smuckers, and Vicky as his regent, Bernadette’s son Henry accuses Vicky of being a con artist. Although Vicky never asked for any of it, she’s not going to let this sexy, rich man push her a...

    I am not into romantic comedy books. I never get into them easily and I always find myself so distracted. But this year, I read some really good romantic comedies that made me smile and fall in love with. Most Eligible Bastard is definitely one of them. I loved this book so much. The storyline, the characters and dialogue just made me feel so good. Annika Martin is one of my favourite one click characters and she gave an enticing story that tingl...

    "This story should be a movie! It played like a movie in my mind and to me, those are the best kind. The characters are so real to life, their stories are believable, yet heartbreaking. Vicky is strong, resourceful, cautious, talented, and witty. She cares for her 16 y/o sister and works hard to keep them safe. Henry is every bit the CEO you'd expect, but there's more to him that only Vicky can reach. He's caring, smart, talented, hot af, and the...

    I was eagerly waiting for this book and it DID NOT disappoint. First, let me say I am in love with Annika's books. The Kinky Bank Robbers are my all time favorite series. I think I reread them all the time. This book, however, I went into not really knowing how I would feel. I love romantic comedies, but I didn't know how the author of KBR would be able to transition over... AND LET ME SAY: SHE DID NOT DISAPPOINT! I mean the very first chapter wi...

    So this book was a miss for me because of Vonda/Vicky!THIS IS MY OPINION AND MY POINT OF VIEW!!If you don’t to be mistaken by a Wolf don’t put on the fur!I got the “stand for yourself” part, but she act indeed like a gold digger!- It was a normal reaction by Henry to think that she tried to trick his mother, (the part to leave it to the dog was crazy) and because we are talking of 51% of a company that worth billions, not some pocket chan...
  • Tracy- OMGReads
    Most Eligible Bastard was a fun, playful read. It got deep at points, but the overall balance fell toward a lighter read. Vicky is a woman who refuses to be put down. When unwillingly placed into that situation, as guardian to a dog, her strength cannot be denied. She is a fabulous heroine, she is strong, smart, and looks out for herself and her own. When Henry tries to bully her, Vicky uses that in a way to boost her courage. She will always fig...

    I was so excited to read this book - the premise is so appealing and so different. It did not disappoint. I laughed pretty much from the get-go. Between Vicky’s smart remarks and Henry’s nastiness, plus the added hilarity that ensues when you have a little dog present all the time, this book kept a smile firmly fixed on my face right the way through. I personally love a good enemies to lovers story, so I particularly enjoyed the conflict betw...

    I liked the heroine and how she stood up for herself. But adding in Smuckers the dog was just weird. I didn't understand the ending at all. Nor did I understand why there had to be a years worth of separation between the couple. What was the purpose of doing that? To make their reunion sweeter?? Well, for me, it felt convoluted and arbitrary. The rest of the story was... fine. Not the best by this author.

    Annika Martin has a backlist that spans multiple romance genres. Under the pen name of Carolyn Crane, she’s written a taut and exciting romantic suspense series, The Associates, as well as an urban fantasy series The Disillusionists. As Annika, she’s gotten to explore a more erotic style, with Taken Hostage by Kinky Bank Robbers (which is exactly what it sounds like) and a darker, edgy mafia style series, Dangerous Royals Romance as well as s...

    I received a ARC copy of this novel in exchange for my review, as part of a blog tour. You can also find this review here. For some reason, I've been sincerely intrigued and frothy over the trope "enemies-to-lovers" as of late. In fact, the last couple of year have seen many fantastic releases developing in different ways when it comes to it. From The Hating Game by Sally Thorne and earlier this year Christina Lauren's Dating You/Hating You, ther...
