KU Sunday Spotlight by KUBR + OCA

Happy Sunday, KUbbies! It’s time for the KU Sunday Spotlight, brought to you by KUBR + the One-Click Addict Support Group. This week, we have two fabulous books to add to your TBR, starring a hooker and a fire chief…

 RATING: BUY IT {Beth} –

That’s right, I’m a reclusive pervert, and I make no apologies for it.

 I’m about 99.9% sure that Annie Catrel is my spirit animal. And I’m 100% certain that I LOVE IT.

This book, y’all. I kinda want to write my review in all shouty caps, like maybe that’ll get my point across better.


There, now I feel a bit better. Because seriously, I just finished reading The Hooker and the Hermit (Rugby Book 1), and I’m practically giddy. This is probably the longest book I’ve read in a while, but I swear, it flew by in a flash of awkwardness, insecurity, humor and sexiness.


It was everything. All of the things. Smart, seamlessly written by this duo of writers who are both new-to-me, and whose back catalogues I’ve already started one-clicking, and so much freakin’ fun to read. I loved it. I loved it. I. LOVED. IT.

I’m sorry for repeating myself, but I can’t help it. Annie + Ronan were ah-mazing. From his dominant, take-no-shit-or-prisoners personality to her shy, anxious and awkward demeanor, this couple was… *throws hands up in a futile attempt to find an appropriate replacement for motherfucking perfect* MOTHERFUCKING PERFECT. (I hope my Mum + Dad don’t read this review—sorry, parentals!)

Now, I’m left a little bereft because no more Annie + Ronan *sad face*. BUT, I already have The Player and the Pixie on my kindle and will be reading it ASAFP. Plus, I’m excited because The Cad and the Coed will be out this coming week, and I AM ALL OVER THAT.

So, in conclusion (and in shouty caps), in case it wasn’t clear: I REALLY, REALLY THINK YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK.

He looked at me like I was adorable and hilarious and enchanting. It made me feel less and more awkward at the same time.


It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Sarah O’Rourke. My love of novellas and quick-and-dirty reads ebbs and flows. Sometimes, I can’t get enough of them. Sometimes, I’ll go months and not read a single one. Lately, they’ve not been high up on my TBR. However, since I am such a fan of Sarah’s writing, I wanted to check out her first quick-and-dirty, Claimed. {I know Wed by Wednesday could technically be classified as a Q+D, but knowing Orla through so many books, it didn’t read that way to me.} I truly am so glad that I did.


Claimed has everything I love about an O’Rourke novel, only pint sized. The writing, the descriptions, the wonderful characters, the residents of Passion I’m already in love with and, of course, the sex. Sarah’s novels tend to run on the long-side, so it was a true pleasure to get to experience all of that in a quick afternoon read.

Claimed is the story of Aiden + Carolina. Aiden, the local, sexy-and-alpha-as-all-hell fire chief, and Carolina, the new-to-town librarian. When they meet, sparks immediately fly. Classic insta-love. In true O’Rourke fashion, however, there’s always a twist and this one is a doozy.

If you’ve read Sarah O’Rourke before, you’ll definitely enjoy this quick, new story from Passion with characters you know and love. If you’re new to Sarah and want to get a feel for her writing, this is the perfect introduction.

As of 02.12.2017, The Hooker and the Hermit and Claimed are available on Kindle Unlimited.
