A Nix Series Review – The Bandicoot Wedding Series by Lexxie Couper, Jess Dee & Sami Lee

Posted in Uncategorized / 0 Comments

I was lucky enough to be asked to review the Bandicoot Cove Wedding series. I loved the first series and so jumped at the chance. I’m reviewing this as a series as these aren’t stand alone books. I would recommend that you read the original series but it can be read as a stand alone series. This is a series of fun and sexy novella’s with just the right amount of angst…

Bianca Rogers is one signature away from finalizing her divorce. And she “will” finalize it just as soon as she gets home. But for this weekend, she’s putting her troubles aside and enjoying the gorgeous, sunlit luxury of Bandicoot Cove, the resort where her brother is getting married. The last thing she expects is to be knocked off her feet-literally-by gorgeous Brody Evans.

 

The fireworks are instantaneous. Brody is just her type: sexy, warm, friendly, and in the same boat as her: in the process of getting a divorce.

 

Spending time together is a mutual no-brainer. Attraction quickly grows to full-blown lust. But flying sparks come with increasingly personal conversations, and soon neither of them can ignore their past mistakes or the circumstances that have led them to the island.

 

Now it’s time to determine whether old hurts and sudden doubts will prevent love from leading them to a whole new happily ever after.

 

Warning: If you don’t believe in second chances, never thought it was possible to fall in love again and aren’t interested in scrumptious, hot love scenes, then this story probably isn’t for you. You’d be missing out – big time – but yeah…it’s probably not for you

I think this is the most angsty of the all the books and I enjoyed it. I honestly didn’t see where it was going (although on reflection, there were enough clues to point the way!). It was incredibly sexy (pool sex people!!) and the overall message was hopeful. I liked Bianca and really enjoyed her complete utter determination to get a second chance at love. She was the main selling point for me in this novella; Brody was fun but that it was more Bianca’s story. She was the one that shared feelings first, she is the one that instigated their relationship and she is the one who drove the whole thing forward.

When Kennedy bolted after a mind-blowing one-night stand with a sexy Australian firefighter, she never expected to be standing in front of him four months later on a tropical island resort. Naked, thanks to her phobia of butterflies.

Trouble is, she’s equally turned on by Luke “and” his hunky British cousin. Not exactly how she’d intended to spend her first day as Bandicoot Cove’s official photographer.

Luke never planned on falling for the feisty, flirty American he met at a New York bar. Now that he’s face to face with her again, he has two questions. Why did she run? And why can’t he stop thinking about sharing the woman of his dreams with his cousin?

Addison invited himself along on his cousin’s trip for a weekend of no-strings-attached sex. But he wants to get to know Kennedy on “all” levels. Seriously, this is no way for a rake to behave. And how the hell is he going to tell his cousin he’s interested in the very woman Luke can’t get out of his mind?

Warning: The setting sun isn’t the only thing heating up Bandicoot Cove, because when the word “threesome” gets thrown into the mix, it’s seduction on a global scale. (Note: No butterflies were scorched during scenes of burning passion.

Oh, this one was the most fun out of all of them. It was very hot and really quite amusing; anything that has a UK man as a debonair charmer makes me chuckle (visit sometime….I’m afraid that particular man is about as easy to find as a lesser spotted eagle!). This book was the tale of Leo the fire fighter (who was hot and intense), Addison (suave and funny) and Kennedy. I loved the male characters in this book and would have LOVED to be in the shoes of Kennedy. Seriously, I couldn’t have chosen either and the menage aspect of this novella was amazingly hot.

There was a point in this tale I didn’t like Kennedy (if you read it, you will know where). I know what she did aided the tale and made the resolution sweeter but at the time I’d have quite happily punched her. I just wanted to take both of the yummy men away from the mean lady and cuddle them….*grin*

Two years ago, Hayley Bryant left Australia on a round-the-world odyssey that changed her life, and her attitude. After that, coming face to face with the man whose rejection sent her packing shouldn’t affect her at all, right?

 

 

Except there’s one thing that hasn’t changed-her former boss Mitchell Wood makes her burn as hot as ever. The difference is, Hayley’s now a grown woman who knows how to get what she wants, and she wants Mitch. Trouble is, she hasn’t come to her friend’s wedding alone. Her very sexy friend with benefits, Ty Butler, might pose a problem.

 

 

Business was always Mitch’s first love…at least until he hired his little sister’s friend as an intern. Pushing her away was the right thing to do, but now his sister’s wedding has Hayley re-entering his life-and the empty place in his heart. Soon he’s acting less like the consummate workaholic and more like a man crazy in love. But Hayley’s “plus one” is an unexpected obstacle.

 

 

Fortunately, Mitch has never been one to shy away from a little competition…

 

 

Warning: Bilby Island’s sensual spell strikes again. Book contains hot lovin’ made in beautiful tropical surrounds, some exhibitionism, voyeurism and bondage. Best read with a margarita in hand and the fan switched to “high.”

Awww, this one was so sweet! Well, it was also ridiculously hot but it was as sweet as Erotic Romance can be! I liked the idea of lost loves finding each other again and being in a place to fully appreciate each other. Mitch was a fabulously alpha (slightly Dom) hero who knew what he wanted and was willing to do literally anything to get it. Hayley was a woman once scorned and I liked the way that he wasn’t get her back without proving to her that he was serious this time. I like strong female characters! I did like Ty…I do hope we see his story 😀

I also loved that she was completely at ease with her sexuality. She liked to be watched, she like to be dominated and she just loved sex in general. The theme throughout these books was one of women being in charge of their sexuality and not apologizing for it….I loved it!

Overall, this was a set of novella’s that were fun and sexy. They were perfect bit-sized chunks of happiness and eroticism. Well recommended!
