Review – The Solution to Unrequited

The Solution to Unrequited ; Unrequited Duet (Series)
by Len Webster (Author)

This review is from: June 26, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

Have you ever given away your whole heart?

Loved selflessly. Unconditionally. Unrequitedly?

To the point where you no longer recognized yourself because you’ve given away everything to sustain a one sided love affair?

At what point do you break? At what point do you reach bottom and finally begin to dig yourself out of the hole you’ve been living in?

At what point do you begin to say enough and put yourself first?

How do you mend a broken heart when it no longer belongs to you?

AJ/Alex/Alexandra was finally happy, away from Evan, the boy who stole, crushed and never knew he had her heart. Unrequited love is what sent her to Duke, North Carolina, instead of Stanford, California.

AJ and Evan were living on opposite sides of the country instead of together. Attending the same school, BFF’s, in each others lives forever.

Evan was currently attending Stanford, without her. The last email she read stating his hatred of her for deserting him, deserting their plans, and leaving him all alone. Solidifying the final nail in their friendship coffin.

AJ knew she’d sever their friendship when she decided to break their college plans, but she also knew she could no longer stand by his side pretending she was just his friend when she felt so much more.

She had to discover who she was without Evan by her side and he’d never let her go unless she left the way she did.

So when Evan appears outside her Duke dorm room door AJ doesn’t know what to say. He wasn’t supposed to find her. She was supposed to have more time, but she also knew, deep down, that she’d eventually have to face what she’d done.


How do you repair something that was so fractured. The relationship that was so obviously unrequited? How do you really explain why you did what you needed to do to save yourself?

A trip home for fall break is all Evan asks.

A trip home to repair what damage was done.

She believes it’s repair their relationship back to status quo.

Evan has another idea.

Evan needs this trip.

He can no longer breathe without AJ in his life.

Evan wants this time to tell AJ how he really feels.

What he really means when he tells her she’s his oxygen. What he was too chicken to say out loud before they left for school.

8 protons. 8 neutrons. 8 little words.

This series is about to do me in…Couldn’t stop reading!!! OMG!!! Is there a 10 star button?!?! All I can say is 8 little words!!!

Review – Incognito

Incognito (Standalone)
by Siobhan Davis (Author)

This review is from: June 24, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

To begin, I’m not sure what I’m feeling after finishing Incognito. I have conflicted feelings about it and I believe that’s why I’m having trouble arriving to a conclusion about what I read.

I want it known that Siobhan Davis is an excellent writer and the last book I read by her is still very memorable. With that being said, perhaps I have her placed on a pedestal of high expectations (shame on me, but I do) so I was expecting high grade, top-of-the line quality and in my expectations something just felt not all the way there.

I just wanted to, hopefully explain, where I was coming from…

I could just jump right in and run down a general synopsis of the story, but I’m not going to lie, there was a lot going on in this book. And perhaps that is one of the items I had a hard time with. It was like Siobhan couldn’t decide what storyline she wanted to write so she meshed a lot of them together to create one book. I prefer a clean story centered around one major plot; then the hero/heroine and their central minor plot creates havoc around that major theme and everyone eventually goes home to a HEA. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good plot twist or lots of quirky characters thrown in along the way to add adventure or humor, but call me old fashioned I start to lose interest when subplot after subplot after subplot begins to pop up.

Aside from that, Siobhan is an excellent writer. She plucks you up and you are transported into her world. She has a way of delivering a huge emotional punch with her characters. I can still feel the pains from reading Inseparable which was months ago, and you will get a peek into how Devin and Ange are doing when you read Incognito. Even with my mixed feelings on this book, I still highly enjoyed it. It just wasn’t in my top favorites when it comes to Siobhan Davis books.

Shawn is an international pop star, currently being stalked and harrassed. This isn’t new considering his lifestyle, but the stalkers have taken it to new heights by threatening his life. Shawn has had enough and decided that the only way to outsmart the attackers is by taking a break from his fame and by hiding in plain sight. Enrolling in college, changing his appearance he blends in with the crowd and escapes his threats.

Dakota never wanted to attend the University of Iowa. She had plans to attend Julliard. Unfortunately, when her sister was murdered and her family needed her to stay closer to home, Dakota stepped into her dead sisters shoes. Now the only time she feels like the old Dakota is late at night when she lets her wild spirit free, dancing upon the rooftops at midnight.

Shawn/Levi his new alias, notices Dakota right away. There is something about her that catches his attention, like a kindred spirit, it’s more than the fact that she hates his guts, but something about her calls to him. He’d like to get to know her just as much as he’d like to know the “Midnight Dancer” he watches late at night when he can’t sleep. The one thing giving him inspiration to write music again.

When Dakota and Levi can no longer resist the pull that connects their two souls, Levi gets pulled further into his lies and knows it’s only a matter of time until his ruse is discovered. Dakota doesn’t want to get close to anyone again, especially after losing her sister. She can tell Levi is holding back, but she’s been so honest and forthcoming with him, he’d never lie to her knowing what she’s been through. She has to trust him because her heart just couldn’t take that kind of heart break again.

“Stop,” I gasped out, before our mouths connected. To his credit, the man didn’t hesitate at all. He was out of my space before the letter p quit resonating.
“You okay?”
“Yeah, I just…” I grimaced, waiting for the thrumming in my chest to subside.
“We don’t have to do anything. You know that.” He made as if to slide out of his bag, the words rushed, his voice a little too loud. “You take the tent. I’ll go outside, give you some space.”
It would have been easy to feed him some BS about a headache, but that wasn’t my way. “Wait.” I set a hand on his arm. “I’m not used to this.”
“Kissing strangers in tents?” He huffed out an impatient sound. “Or not kissing them, I guess.”
“No. No, that’s not it.”
“So, you are used to kissing strangers in tents?” There was a smile in his voice.
A nervous giggle escaped me and I sat up, my head almost brushing the ceiling of this tiny space. He was so big and this tent was too small, too tight, too…something. The smells, the sounds, so subtle, but more than any half-drunken, fully-clothed door bang. “Maybe it’s cause I knew you as a kid, but I…I don’t think so. I think it’s…” Jesus. I swallowed and worked hard to catch my breath. “I don’t feel sorry for you, okay? Just so that’s clear. But there’s this…sadness to you that’s got its claws in me. I want to fix it. God, I know that sounds fucked up. And it’s not like me at all. But I want to take it, maybe? Make it better. Smooth it out or swallow some of it?”
He cleared his throat as if he’d say something, but nothing came out and, since I was afraid to look at him, I plowed right through. “You’re not my type, Kurt. My usual M.O.’s more confident asshole than broken soldier, I guess.”
“Broken Marine,” he corrected.
“Marine. Right. I didn’t mean to insinuate that there’s anything wrong with— Oh, fuck it, come here.”


“You still smell good.” I instantly hardened at those words and just stopped myself from reaching down to press on my cock.
“You’re killing me, O’Neal.”
“We don’t have to do anything, is what I’m trying to tell you. But we can. I’m a direct son of a bitch, I know.”
That made me laugh; a weird, barked sound that almost hurt on the way out.
“Or, you know, if you need me to…hold you or something, I could just keep you warm.”
“You said you were lonely.”
My eyes popped open, and I turned to her. “You feel sorry for me?”
“No, dumbass. I’m into you.”
“This how you are with guys? Offering hugs and stuff?”
“I usually demand a quick, hard fuck. But with you I figured I’d take it slow.”
Everything in my body stood up at those words. Goosebumps in a sleeping bag when it was just barely freezing outside. And my cock, Christ, it was rock solid now. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d had a hard-on like this. And I’d had a lot of offers for fucks over the years.
“Jesus, lady.” I managed to squeeze the words out through my throat, got my eyes to focus on her instead of the ceiling.
“We just met!”
“Kurt Anderson, I’ve known you since third grade.”
She didn’t look like she was joking. And she didn’t have the vibe of someone negotiating the terms of a pity fuck. But I wasn’t entirely sure what I’d do if we did get naked, much less get busy. It had been so long since I’d gotten close to a woman. And as for fucking… I swallowed hard. What was I doing?
Her mouth, though. My eyes snagged on that pouty lip—just inches away, right here in my tent. Unless this whole thing was a hallucination. And, Jesus, if it was, let it never, ever end.
“How about a kiss?” My attention was so focused on her mouth, I forgot to take in her eyes when I let those words slide out. As if I said shit like that every day.
Her eyes were wide, by the time my gaze made its way up there—like she was taking it all in with as much as excitement as I was, and she didn’t want to miss a thing.
“That’s what you want?” she asked. “A kiss?”
“Yeah.” I was breathing hard already, like a teenager, which seemed pretty damned suited to the situation.
“Come here, then, and kiss me.”

Excerpt Reveal – Mister Tonight

From New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a standalone romance about a swoony single dad and the new neighbor he falls for.

Last night was the most embarrassing night of my life.

I was THAT girl.

You know, the highly intoxicated chick celebrating her thirtieth with her two best friends—the ones who are happily married. And the more I drank, the more I wanted to do something reckless to celebrate.

By reckless, I meant the sexy and alluring man dressed in a business suit standing near the bar. You know his type—tall, dark, and handsome. I was sure he was out of my league, but I’d had just enough alcohol that things like that no longer seemed to matter. I’m not fat, mind you, but you can tell I like French fries, so there’s that.

He took me home and I enjoyed the hottest birthday sex of my life, well until it came to a screeching, and rather unwelcome halt.

There’s nothing quite like being interrupted mid-ride with a little voice asking:

“What are you doing to my daddy?”

Just kill me now…… or so I thought.

Come to find out the man I rode like a bull at the rodeo is my new landlord.


Kindle US | ✦Kindle UK | ✦iBooks | ✦Nook | ✦ Google | ✦Kobo | ✦Audio



Casual flings didn’t tend to handle the whole single-dad thing well. Single moms, on the other hand, fucking loved it. The idea of a man devoted to his kid had them panting for days. But casual, no-strings hookups? To them, me being a dad screamed one of two things: I was either an irresponsible asshole who couldn’t properly wrap it up, or I was a total commitment addict trying to lure them in with my adorable four-year-old child in need of a new mama. Either way, it usually didn’t go over well. But so far, Kate was handling it fine.

Then she crossed the room toward me, and a single thought pervaded my brain.

Fuck, she’s sexy.

All those curves and her throaty laugh, coupled with her confidence? I was a total sucker for a confident woman who knew what she wanted.

“Happy birthday,” I whispered, placing my hands on her waist and drawing her in close.

Just because this would most likely be a one-time thing didn’t mean I wanted to rush through it. Quite the opposite, actually. I wanted to savor and enjoy every minute of this. Starting with the perfect kiss.

“It’s almost midnight,” she murmured, her lips just inches from mine.

Placing one hand on her cheek, I guided her mouth to mine, sealing my lips over hers in a slow, soft kiss.

She responded perfectly, opening her mouth in a silent invitation for my tongue to slide against hers. My hands found those curves wrapped under that black fuck-me dress I’d been admiring, and God, she felt even better under my palms than I could have imagined. Soft and warm and so inviting.

I pressed one more slow kiss to her lips and pulled back to study her reaction. I rarely did this kind of thing. Having her here was surreal . . . and really fucking turning me on, knowing what was probably about to happen.

“Can I get you something to drink?” I asked, slipping my hand around her waist. If she’d changed her mind or wanted to slow things down, I wanted her to know that was fine too.

“I can think of other things I’d rather be doing with my mouth,” she replied, her voice low and sultry as she ran her fingertips over my chest.

God, I love a woman who knows what she wants.



A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author of more than two dozen titles, Kendall Ryan has sold over 1.5 million books and her books have been translated into several languages in countries around the world. She’s a traditionally published author with Simon & Schuster and Harper Collins UK, as well as an independently published author.

New Release – The Bombshell Effect

Title: The Bombshell Effect
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Sports Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 14, 2018
Cover Designer: Najla Qamber
Allie Sutton just got a new job. 
Not one she wants, and definitely not one she’s prepared for. She hadn’t seen her dad in years, so the last thing she expects upon his sudden death is to inherit the thing he loved more than anything (or anyone) … the professional football team he owned for the last twenty years. 
Luke Pierson does not want a new boss. 
What he wants is to be a good father to his daughter, the best quarterback possible for his teammates. What he doesn’t need is a blonde bombshell ruining the team’s chances at another championship. Especially when that bombshell turns out to be his new neighbor. The neighbor he was a complete jerk to the first time they met. 
For the sake of the team, they treat each other like complete professionals. In public, at least. Behind closed doors, it’s a different story. And the fallout of giving in to that heat is something neither one of them can see coming.

This book is EVERYTHING I love as a reader. It’s hot, it’s hilarious, it’s witty and smart. YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE.” – Amazon bestselling author Kandi Steiner 


“This book is like my own personal catnip. It has sports, it has tension, and the sexy bits are amazing. The perfect blend of hot and heartwarming.– Amazon bestselling author Amy Daws 


“She took one of my favorite tropes and totally dominated it, she killed it. Sorensen is a football junkie who took her passion for a sport and inserted it into a story. The Bombshell Effect is her gaming winning touchdown.– SBR Reviews

Just before they entered the room, something snapped through my ears at the sound of her voice, but it was nothing I could place, nothing I could pin down with certainty. We all stood to greet her, and as soon as I got the first glimpse of her dress, everything around me slowed to a sluggish, weighted crawl.
It was almost as if my brain couldn’t process what I was seeing, so the vision of her was reduced to blocks of color.
Tan shoes.
Tan legs.
Red dress.
Blond hair.
Red lips.
White teeth.
Blue-green eyes.
When it all snapped together, I lost my breath in a pained whoosh. This could not be happening.
As she smiled brightly at Dayvon, giving him her full attention, I realized she hadn’t seen me yet. My next-door neighbor, the one who had called me an arrogant asshole less than twenty-four hours earlier, was the new owner of the Washington Wolves. And she hadn’t seen me yet. 
Suddenly, I understood the rampant tug of nerves and the unshakable feeling that something was about to go very, very wrong. I swiped my hand over my mouth and let out a slow breath, straightening my shoulders and holding my head up high. I could do this. I’d stared down three hundred-pound linebackers who wanted to rip the helmet off my head as they tackled my ass to the ground.
I could do this. 
She turned in my direction, and I saw the moment it registered. The hitch in her step, the narrowing of her eyes, the slight purse in her scarlet red lips.
You,” she whispered.
Everything stopped. All eyes turned in my direction. The temperature in the room with that one hushed word from her went from cordial to downright glacial.
“Oh, shit,” I muttered under my breath. She crossed her arms tightly over her chest. The chest I’d ogled while she shoved cupcakes at me.

There was absolutely no part of this that could end well.

Well, let’s see … I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone’s face, then I’ve done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I’ll love you forever.
