Blog Tour Review & Giveaway ~ Sucked Into Love (Bachelorette Party #1) by Rochelle Paige

 Blog Tour~ Sucked Into Love by Rochelle Paige

Bachelorette Party Series #1


No woman ever expects to meet the man of her dreams at her bachelorette party...

It's just Jocelyn's luck that she meets her match at the fake bachelorette party her best friend throws for her. She knows better than to get pulled into any of Cee-Cee's antics. It must have been sheer exhaustion that made her agree to help her best friend out with a work project - one that ended up with her playing bachelorette for the night!

No man ever wants to be knocked off his feet by a woman he meets while she's wearing a bachelorette "suck for a buck" shirt...

Andrew knows that he wants Jocelyn the moment he lays eyes on her, but he's never been one to poach on another man's territory. He walks away but finds himself changed by the experience. Imagine his surprise when he sees her again, only to discover she isn't married and has never even been engaged.

Hi, Alec. I hope I’m not too early,” I heard a woman say softly after the sound of the door opening. Just the sound of her voice sent a chill up my spine.
Not at all,” Alec replied. “Mom was just saying how excited she is you could come over before everyone else so she could catch up since it’s been so long since she’s seen you.”
How sweet. It’s hard to believe it’s been seven years already. I guess they’re right when they say time flies,” she replied
And I told you that you didn’t need to bring anything,” he scolded her in a teasing tone as they moved close to the kitchen.
I stood up from the table and hadn’t even taken a step when they made it into the kitchen. Alec hadn’t been kidding when he’d said that she wasn’t a dude. Jo, the girl my mom was urging my brother to ask out, was the caramel-haired beauty I hadn’t been able to get out of my mind since she was in my club. For her bachelorette party.
And then it hit me. My brother couldn’t ask her out because she was probably already married. It had been a little more than a month already. I glanced down at her ring finger and was shocked to find it bare. While I stood there in a stupor my mom had moved to give her a hug.

~this review may contain minor spoilers~

I'd never bothered to build a relationship of any kind with any of the women I'd slept with. And although I'd grown tired of the game, I never wanted any of them enough to make a change in my way of life.
Until the moment I laid eyes on her and felt the pull of our chemistry from across my crowded club. At her own goddamn bachelorette party. Of all the rotten luck.

Jocelyn knew better than to get involved in one of her best friend Cee-Cee's harebrained schemes, her only excuse is that she was tired; she had just got done moving back home after all. However, she never expected that playing the bride-to-be at a fake bachelorette party would bring her face to face with the man who would come storming into her life and change it forever.

Andrew has never been the relationship kinda guy, but lately, the constant one-night stands have completely lost their appeal. But who would have thought that when he finally came across the first woman to make him want to settle down and be monogamous, it would be at her bachelorette party. Even knowing she is off the market, he can't take his eyes off her or get her out of his mind a month later. So imagine his surprise when he runs into her again and discovers that not only is she single, but she was never engaged to begin with. That makes her fair game, and Andrew always gets what he wants.

I didn't think I had ever felt such an instantaneous and strong feeling of desire for a man before. And it scared me a little how much he could make me feel so quickly. No man should be able to get my panties dripping wet with a few touches and a whisper in my ear.

This was a pretty quick read with minimal drama and very little angst to speak of, which are what I usually what I look forward to in my romances. It was sweet however, and loaded with some awesome characters and friggin hott sex. But what really drew me was the way the author flipped the typical roles; in this one it was the Playboy Alpha who was insecure in the relationship, though he covered it pretty well with his sexy-as-hell demanding and dominating ways, and it was our leading lady who was dragging her commitment feet. She does eventually get on the same page as her man, but it takes time, some wicked persuasion techniques and not a whole lot of patience. That is what I loved about this story and what helped me get past my insta-love irritation; of course, the crazy hott chemistry didn't hurt either ;)
She did throw a little twist in towards the end that kinda made my heart stop, but still did a fantastic job of wrapping it up quite nicely without leaving me hanging but giving us a hint of who the next story may be about. I know this series is a spin-off of the Blythe College Series, which I haven't read... yet, but it was my introduction to Rochelle Paige and it certainly won't be the last book I read from her ~ cannot wait to see what kind of badass Alpha she brings us next.

I guess I can look forward to some corruption, because there's nothing innocent about the way you make me feel. So you better get used to all sorts of dirty words coming from my mouth meant for your pretty little ears.”
And if I say no?”
“You aren't going to say no. Your skin is flushed. You're breathing heavily and I can feel your pulse racing. You want to say yes.”
“I do.”
“Then just fucking do it.”

~Five Things You May Not Know About Sucked Into Love~

  1. It was going to be my debut book until the idea for Push the Envelope smacked me upside the head and wouldn't let go.

    1. The idea for Andrew and Jocelyn to meet at a fake bachelorette party was inspired by... a fake bachelorette party during a girls road trip weekend.

  1. I hadn't planned on Jason being a major part of this series until he insisted he get his own story - and girl!

4. My favorite part of writing this book was the brainstorming session I had with my best friend many, many months ago.

5. The idea of a boarding school that was famous for some of it's sports programs may sound far-fetched, but fact is sometimes stranger than fiction as there really is one in Indiana.

I absolutely adore reading - always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year's resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me "About time!"
