Overview

The Things I Do for You (Contemporary Romance) by M. Malone

Charmer.
Asshole.
Player.


He's been called them all. But Nick Alexander doesn't mind his reputation as a playboy. It serves him well in business and a beautiful woman is always on his arm.

Except the one he's in love with.

Raina Winters doesn't believe in love, so when she's dumped right before her wedding, she's more upset about losing what she really wants from marriage.

A baby.

When Nick learns about Raina's dilemma, his first reaction is to leave her hanging like she left him after their steamy one-night stand. But he finally has something Raina needs, so he offers her a deal. He'll give her a baby if she gives him something he desires just as much.

Just two little words. I. Do.

Wedding bells and baby-making. What could go wrong?


If you thought ONE MORE DAY was hot, you might need a glass of ice water before you meet Nick and Raina. Full-length standalone filled with sexy times and all the feels. Get ready to swoon!

## Wow. This book was spectacular. It can stand alone but I would recommend reading "One more day" first to fully appreciate all the characters and their dynamics. The way Nick and Raina were portrayed in the first book, I thought "oh boy, they are going to fight chapter after chapter and just come together in the end". Not so. They were fabulous together. I loved that the author let them have good times together. Nick was drool-worthy, doting on his new wife, always trying to make sure she was happy. It was romantic and intimate. Of course for there to be a book at all, there had to be conflict, but it was resolved rather quickly. My only complaint is that the ending was a tad abrupt which is a pet peeve of mine. I love myself a "complete" ending that leaves me satisfied. I can't wait for more in this series. Matt anyone?

Well, loved this one as much as I loved the prequel and book 1. However, as with the other ones, the end came so abruptly that I kept scrolling the pages looking for more. Come on, Mrs. Malone, give us at least an Epilogue at the end. What a pity! If not for that, I would have given it 5 stars.

The Things I Do for You - The Alexanders, Book 2 A bargain. A baby. A billion things can go wrong. Nicholas Alexander doesn’t mind being called a playboy. His charm serves him well in business and a beautiful woman is always on his arm. Except the one he’s in love with. Raina Winters doesn’t believe in love, so when she’s dumped right before her wedding, she’s more upset about losing what she really wants from marriage. A baby. When Nick learns about Raina’s dilemma, his first reaction is to leave her hanging like she left him after their steamy one-night stand. But he finally has something Raina needs, so he offers her a deal. He’ll give her a baby if she gives him something he desires just as much. Just two little words. I. Do. --------------------------- Okay that was the story's purpose. Now for the JUICY bits unveiled. Raina's this hot & popular model and with her endometriosis progressing, she's a timebomb to have a kid before she stops producing eggs. BUMMER. So with all the emotional garbage she and her twin, Ridley, went through growing up, Raina is still "hardshell" against love and other emotions, save Ridley who she would protect with her life. Love, right? So of course the steamy hot one-nighter with Nick has her confused (from book 1) and she still thinks about him when she plans a platonic "businesslike" marriage to Billionaire with robot emotions, Stephen. He's a dud, yep. So the question is, will Raina get her head out of her butt, figure out that Nick loves her, she CAN be loved and give love, that he wants her and will marry her to just have her in his life? I won't ruin that surprise for ya. YOU have to read it! Okay now how did I feel? I LOVE this continuation series into the sexy Alexander boys. Each book is about one of the four scrumptious hotties: One More Day is Book 1 with Jackson (the youngest) and Ridley, twin to Raina The Things I Do for You is Book 2 with Nicholas (Nick) the next to the youngest and Raina, twin to Ridley (from book 1) The flow from books 1 to 2 was smooth. Even though the time between the two books took a moment to adjust. But once I kept reading and got more familiar with her characters, it was easy to remember One More Day's story line. I love how she [Minx] gets those emotions going in her readers. I felt heart palpitations when there was acknowledgement. I cheered when something good finally happened. Tears of joy, wishful thinking, hope, suspicion, intrigue, and disgust (with Stephen). Yeah, you feel it all with Minx. A roller coaster she takes you on with her books and I love it. But I know Minx gives us happy ending, but even knowing that there will be a happy ending, the ending isn't satisfying unless you take the journey. Take this journey with Minx. I promise she will not disappoint you! Yeah still ready to kick Stephen's butt. ;-)

This series is just the best! I loved book 2 as much as book 1 and the prequel! I am already excited and cant wait for the next in the series, the characters are great and I am in love with all of the Alexander men. Bravo to Minx Malone. I never thought I would love a series as much as I love all of Nora Roberts series, but you have done it!

This is the 1st Alexanders book that I've read. This is a must read. I loved the drama & love between Nick & Raina. If you like drama, romance, hot sex & some really funny moments this is the book for you. I will be reading more Alexanders books and I can't wait.

Minx Malone has done it again!!! I fell in love with Raina and Nick story right from the start. Rania wanted it all marriage,stability and a baby and she was willing to sacrifice her happiness to get it. Being engaged to a man she didn't love was what it would take to get that until he broke it off suddenly. The very sexy Nick Raina had a one night stand with is willing to grant her that wish but she must give him something in return. If you are looking for a sweet and very sexy love story then this books is something you should read ASAP. Job well done Minx Malone and I look forward to reading your next book!!

I liked this one! I haven't read the other book in this series and I think I will now. This one definitely can be read as a stand alone, though one thing happens in the first book between the two main characters that is talked about in this one. You don't neeeeed to read it to know what is happening, but it probably would have helped in understanding the dynamic between Nick and Raina. :) All in all this was a good, short, light read. It's not full of angst or frustration really. Just more of watching how the two characters develop with each other. I feel like it could have been more. There are a few sub plots that could have been delved into more than they were to make the book more exciting or more tense. If you are looking for a lighter read then I would recommend this one.

I LOVED the first two books and was anxiously waiting to see what happened with Nick and Raina. It was better than I could have imagined! I have already let the ladies at work know this is definitely a MUST HAVE!!
