Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

I’m completely in love with Credence, Co and everyone who lives in this small town. Nothing But Trouble is filled with everything I adore about small town romances.

    • Great secondary characters, whom I’m looking forward to reading their own stories in the near future.
    • A slow-to-build chemistry between Wade and CC which builds to an all consuming inferno.
    • Quick witted banter not only between the main characters, but all of the secondary characters.
    • A hero that should have been filled with a giant ego, but in his hometown, he was just a regular guy. That is small town living at its best.
    • A heroine so full of love and genuineness that the small town accepted her as one their own from the get go.

I could continue this list of things I love not only about small towns, but also what I love about this book, but I think you should really read about them for yourself in Nothing But Trouble.

Wade Carter is “The Catapult” of the NFL Broncos, the town’s “number one son” of Credence, Co with three SuperBowl rings in his possession. If anyone asked him, Wade has a pretty sweet life, but when he gets the news that his father’s health is failing, he’s hit in the solar plexus. Wade decides to take a vacation from everything, pack up and move back home for the summer, taking his PA, Cecelia “CC” Morgan with him, much to her argument.

CC has dedicated the last five and half years of her life to Wade Carter as his personal assistant. She’s been at his beck and call twenty-four/seven. Available to pick up Nerds for his candy obsession or condoms for his other off the field obsession. CC is looking forward to her six year contract coming to an end so she isn’t exactly thrilled to spend the next several months in the small town of Credence. Packing her bag CC finds herself living in a Gone With the Wind replica style home, nursing piglets, while scheduling busloads of women to arrive in the declining town as a promo campaign to boost the population. Her days working for Wade are never boring.

With Wade trying to finish his memoir while also helping out at his family farm, he hates the idea of strangers arriving in his hometown disturbing his quiet, peaceful place of  rest. He seems to be the only one not on board with reviving the town. Not only does it take CC away from him, the town seems to have taken a shining to his PA, but something about being away from all other distractions has shifted something in him about everything in his life. Could he always have been living with blinders on?

Nothing But Trouble is fun, sweet, full of farm animals, and one hunky NFL player whom can’t help but be a bit naive in the love department even after lots of practice on the field. This is one small town romance you need to read this year!

Review – Fluffy by Julia Kent

Fluffy (Standalone)
by Julia Kent (Author)

This review is from: April 19, 2019 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

A romcom that’s a little dirty, a lot flirty, breakout funny, and just a great read!

When Mallory Monahan answers the job ad for a professional fluffer; #1 she’s desperate (she’s to the point where she might have to move back in with her parents), #2 she’s a professional stager (the job description was close, even if they called it something different), #3 did I mention she was desperate (the spam ads of marrying a Nigerian prince were beginning to look enticing).

Keep your beverages set far away or you may be cleaning up your own spit takes. (Is that too punny when a fluffer job is involved?) Anyway, Fluffy is hilarious, so this really is a warning; read and drink at your own risk.

When Mallory arrives at the job site and things go from desperate to…well let’s just say she finally figures out what a professional fluffer does. Back in high school, she was humiliated when her car was decorated with the words “most likely to become a porn star”, little did she realize the joke would actually come back to haunt her. To add to her humiliation, her high school crush, Will Lotham, arrives on set with the cops in tow. Could her life get any worse?

With a ten year class reunion looming, no job, the possibility of moving back in with her parents, and the humiliation of answering a fluffer ad Mallory doesn’t understand when Will seems to take an interest in her. Is it to complete her humiliation? Because he came in second best back in high school, is it revenge? Or could it be real interest?

Cover Reveal, New Releases

Cover Reveal – Wed to the Warrior by Madison Faye

COVER REVEAL
Title: Wed to the Warrior
Series: Kilts & Kisses #3
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Wildly historically inaccurate 
Highlander historical romance
Cover Design: Coverlüv
Release Date: April 22, 2019

BLURB

Other would-be suitors called me “challenging”.
But the most undeniable, sinfully gorgeous Highlander lord around calls me a challenge.
Oh and he calls me something else, too: his.

Marriage has never been in the plans for me. Not with my reputation for being “headstrong” and “disobedient”. That is, until Lord Callum Bruce barges into my world and scatters those plans all over the place.

But Lord Bruce is a brute of a man. A battle-hardened soldier and fierce, dominant Highland lord. Well, that and completely beautiful, which is so very, very unfair.

When he tells me I’m to be his wife, I flee. But there’s no running from the most dominant, gorgeous, sinfully tempting man I’ve ever met.

Not after I’ve had a teasing taste of those perfect lips. Not when I’ve felt those rough hands on me. Not when deep down, I want him to chase me.

…Not when deep down, I want him to take all of me.

The first kiss was a mistake. The second was stolen. But the ones after that, I’ve run out of excuses for.

I’ve scared nine would-be-suitors away. But something tells me, number ten isn’t going anywhere.

Passionate about plaid? Step into something wild, filthy, and tropey as all get-out. Hot, alpha af, and WILDLY historically inaccurate. Warning: not responsible for lost or ripped bodices. Reader beware.

As with all my books, this one is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Biker Baby
Series: Kings of Mayhem #3
Author: Penny Dee
Genre: MC Romance/Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 19, 2019

BLURB

I was about to make a huge mistake.
And when I say huge, I mean, approximately ten inches’ worth of mistake.
But after the week I’d had, this was just what I needed. A night of big bad mistakes with a big bad biker.

Honey Scott
Finding out your boyfriend is a cheating loser is a real buzz kill. Finding out you’re actually the other woman, is devastating. Call it temporary insanity, but I decide the best way to get over the loser I’d dated for two years is to get under a biker with tattoos, dimples and a hard body he knows how to use.
He’s going to make everything better with numerous mind-blowing orgasms. But just for one night.
Except one faulty condom means my one-night stand isn’t so one-night after all.

Caleb Calley
After a night of insane sex, the beautiful blue-eyed brunette gave me the slip. And even with all the women on offer afterwards, I can’t get her off my mind. So when she turns up at the Kings of Mayhem MC compound I’m quick to give her a second night of amazing sex and crazy orgasms. But this time, I’m not ready to let her go.
There’s just one problem— she’s not interested.
But if she thinks she’s going to give me the slip again, then she’s got another thing coming. I know she is keeping a secret from me but I don’t care what it is. I want her and I’m going to make her mine.

Biker Baby, book three in the Kings of Mayhem MC series.

EXCERPT

As he waited for his breathing to calm, I took a moment to marvel in the bulk of the man lying on top of me. My fingers slid across golden skin colored with a collage of intricate pictures, symbols and words. My palm curved around strong deltoid muscles that were well-rounded and powerful. He was big. Strong. Lethal. And probably not interested in being the father of my baby.
The thought made me shift uneasily beneath him. I had to get out of there. I needed to be alone to collect my thoughts and find my senses. I wiggled and Caleb rolled off me. I thought he would let me go but he didn’t. Instead he turned my face towards him and kissed me hard on the mouth.
But I was leaving. I sat up and began looking for my panties on the floor. Finding them wedged under the corner of the bed, I slipped them on and began hunting for my skirt.
“Where are you going?” He asked.
“I have to go.”
“Why are you always running away from me?” He said, an amused sparkle in his eyes. “Will I see you again?”
I paused and looked at him over my shoulder. “Do you want to?”
He grinned and I was momentarily taken back by how beautiful it was.
How beautiful he was.
“Hell darlin’, I don’t want you to leave.”
I resumed looking for my skirt. “I have to leave. I have things to do.”
I found my skirt in a tangle with my shirt at the foot of the bed.
“At least let me give you a ride home.” He sat up.
“Its fine. I can call a cab.” I stood up and slipped my shirt on.
“I’m not letting you take a cab.”
“Really its fine.”
He climbed off the bed, unfazed by his nakedness, and began looking for his boxer shorts. I paused to drink in the fine display of his muscular body and his still swollen manhood swinging between his powerful thighs. It was obvious he took very good care of his body.
He slipped on his jeans and by the time I had buttoned my blouse and found my phone and shoes, he was fully dressed and securing his wallet chain to his jeans.
“Ready?” He asked.
There was no point arguing.
As he opened the bedroom door, I mentally braced myself. I wasn’t looking forward to the walk of shame through the clubhouse. But the hallway was quiet and the clubhouse was still. Sometime in the night the music had stopped and the party had wound down.
As soon as I entered the bar, the stench of last nights partying hit me like a bat to the face and I had to hold my breath.  The bar was littered with snoring bikers and the odd club girl asleep where they had passed out. Bottles lay scattered and spilled everywhere. Stale booze and body odor were ripe in the air. Caleb took my hand and led me through the mess, stepping over discarded bottles and sleeping bodies. Musty smoke glittered in the dusty rays of sunlight bursting into the room from a window above the jukebox.
Across the room, an older biker was quietly having sex with a large, partially dressed woman up against the pool table. His jeans were down around his ankles and his eyes were closed as he lazily rocked into her. The slap, slap of her large wobbly boobs against the pool table broke the stillness of the morning.
Further away, a naked woman lay slumped at the base of a stripper pole with everything open and on display. She hugged a half-spilled bourbon bottle and snored loudly. As we passed by her, Caleb shook his head and grabbed a discarded shirt from a nearby chair to cover her.
“Is she alright?” I whispered.
“Yeah, that’s Candy. It’s not the first time she’s passed out there and it won’t be the last.”
I glanced around me. This place. These people. This was Caleb’s world. And it reeked of bad choices. Nausea roiled in the pit of my stomach and I barely made it outside in time before losing the contents of my stomach.
“Jesus, are you okay?” Caleb asked, coming up behind me.
I gestured for him to give me a moment as another wave of nausea washed over me and I vomited again.
“You drink too much?” he asked when I finally straightened and walked over to him. “I don’t remember you being drunk.”
I shook my head. “I didn’t drink a thing.”
He handed me a helmet. “Are you okay to ride? Or do you need a minute?”
“I’ll be okay.”
He led me over to a row of motorcycles parked alongside the clubhouse. His was a big black beast with lots of chrome gleaming in the early morning light.
Before he climbed on, he touched my hand. “Are you sure you’re ok?”
I smiled brightly but it was fake because I felt weird. Out of place. I didn’t belong there.
“Yes. I’m fine.” I said, very aware that I needed to get out of there. I did up my helmet and climbed onto the back of his bike. “Lets ride.”
