Teacher I Want to Date 
(A standalone)

by: Mia Kayla

Review Rating:




Mia Kayla is a new author for me. While her writing was excellent, I just had a hard time connecting with the characters throughout this particular story.

Mason and Gabby spend the first part of the story with everyone else besides each other. While I like their characters as a whole; Mason is adorably quirky and Gabby is a fiery latina, they didn’t spend enough time together to make their chemistry pop and sizzle until the book is almost half over.
While I love a good secondary character who adds spice, wit and flavor, they shouldn’t take away from the main character, but that is my opinion.

Once Mason and Gabby actually go on a date the story is adorable. Mason really breaks out of his shell, or at least out of his own character traits. Isn’t that what finding the right mate is all about, compromise?

While their families are both great, I personally would have enjoyed them just a tad less, but once again that is my own opinion.


Dear Very Hot Crazy Woman,
You didn’t have to call the cops on me.

I was just looking after my niece.
Okay… maybe I shouldn’t have been spying on her date. But I know how teenage boys think and what they want.

Did it make you feel good scolding me in front of everyone for just being a good uncle?
Because damn, you sure looked good doing it.

I’m almost positive you were cussing me out and if I understood a lick of Spanish, I’d have shut you up with a kiss told you exactly what I thought about your meddling, even if you are her teacher.

In fact, I’d like to schedule a date over dinner and wine parent teacher conference to discuss our differing views on raising the youth of today so we are on the same page when we have children—preferably together
Your Future Husband

Cover Reveal – Dirty Prince by V. Darling

Title: Dirty Prince
Series: Scarsdale Royals #1
Author: V. Darling
Genre: High School Bully Romance
Cover Design: Tall Story
Release Date: March 12, 2020


There’s only one thing you need to know about Scarsdale High.
The Royals rule here.

We say when to jump and how high, and the rest follow like lemmings because to do otherwise is social suicide.

As cheer captain, I have everything I’ve ever wanted, including Scarsdale’s star quarterback, Navrin Fox.

There’s just one problem … his twin brother.

Lev Fox knows exactly how to push my buttons—he’s been doing it since childhood, after all—but when I give into my baser instincts and let the boy I hate best me in a battle of wills, it’s not only my reputation as Queen Bee on the line, it’s my heart too.

Secrets, betrayal, and lies—that’s what we Royals do best.
But no one ever said anything about love.

“You’re sick, you know that?” But even as I say it, I know we’re both infected, tainted, ailing from the same illness, and neither one of us will do anything to cure it. There is no cure for a love as vicious and cruel as this. There’s only embracing what we are, what we have, and what we’ll do to one another. What we’ll do to see the other fall.
“I want you to leave me alone.” I pant as his hands work my pussy faster.
“I don’t think that’s true,” he whispers.
I gasp, struggling for breath as I climb closer to climax. “I hate you so much it hurts.”
“I know.” He bites down on my shoulder. The way a lion might bite the neck of his consort as he fucks her and claims her as his.
I always thought of Lev as a beast, a wolf, a bear so in love with his own solitude—angry and untouchable—but he’s not any of those things. He’s a lion, determined to bow me to his will, but if he’s the lion then I’ll be the leader of his pride. I’ll be the one he never strays far from, and I’ll be the one to bring him down, to chase him off and exile him. I just need to remove his teeth from my heart first.
He groans as he spills inside me, and the sensations push me over the edge. My body clenches tight around him, riding him, milking him, and all the while he fucks me harder through my orgasm.
When the only sound in the room is our labored breaths, and the sweat cools on our bodies, he releases my shoulder and smiles. “The feeling is fucking mutual, Cub.”


V is for Vixen, Vamp, Vexing, and Veronica—because I’m so NOT a Betty.

V is whomever you want her to be.

V. Darling is also the pseudonym of a USA Today bestselling author.
She has penned many books, none of those start with V.

New Release – Just Getting Started by Kaylee Ryan & Lacey Black

Title: Just Getting Started
Series: Fair Lakes #2
Author: Kaylee Ryan & Lacey Black
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 4, 2020


My life isn’t exactly going as planned. I’m basically floating up a certain creek without a paddle. Desperately needing a new place to live, I receive an offer I can’t refuse, and you never look a gift horse in the mouth, right? Unless that particular mouth is connected to an uber sexy manwhore that makes me want to punch him in the face and then kiss him until I pass out from lack of oxygen. I must avoid him like the plague.


Gabby Connor; there is no request too small in my eyes. When I blurt out an offer I know she can’t refuse, I don’t think either one of us realize that our lives are about to change. Something else I didn’t comprehend, how hard it would be to keep my hands off of her, or my mouth, or my… you get the picture. It’s our time, no more hiding or waiting in the wings. I’m pulling out all the stops. I’m tired of being in the friend-zone. It’s time to take what I’ve always wanted.

But nothing is easy for us. Our road is full of twists and turns and a few surprises along the way. When push comes to shove and the cards are thrown on the table, can we navigate a new life, especially when we’re just getting started?

Blog Tour – Resurrection by Siobhan Davis

Resurrection - BT banner

“I devoured Resurrection in one sitting. It was sinfully sexy, dark, and taboo. I can’t wait for the next book. I might have begged Siobhan for it already.” Ava Harrison, USA Today bestselling author

Resurrection, the first in the all-new dark, reverse harem series The Sainthood-Boys of Lowell High from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis, is available now!


A new dark romance from the USA Today bestselling author of the Rydeville Elite series.

Everything changed the night my dad died.

The night I met Saint, Galen, Caz, and Theo.

Those manipulative a-holes set out to ruin me after our hot night together, but they didn’t realize you can’t destroy something that’s already broken. And it only works if the victim cares.

Which I don’t.

Because I’ve been in hell for years, and nothing penetrates the steel walls I’ve erected.

Until The Sainthood decides I belong to them and cracks appear in my veneer. Their cruel games, harsh words, and rough touch awakens something inside me, and now, I’m in trouble.

They draw me deeper into their dangerous world, until I’m in the middle of all the violence and gang warfare, tangled up in all the secrets and lies, and there’s no turning back.

Because they own me.

And nothing has ever felt so right.

I’m exactly where I should be.

But with enemies on all sides, survival becomes a deadly game with no guarantees.

And, sometimes, saints become sinners.

Due to mature content, this book is recommended to readers aged eighteen and over. This is a full-length reverse harem dark romance novel with enemies-to-lovers/bullying themes. Cannot be read as a standalone and ends with a cliffhanger. Book 1 of 3.

Read Kay’s Review: Resurrection


The three guys are squished in the back, and Galen sends daggers at me through the mirror as I bite into my burger. I chew my food, and he glares at me the whole time. When I’ve swallowed, I swivel in my seat, the leather squelching with the motion. “What the fuck is your problem with me?”

He sits up straighter, leaning forward so he can pin me with the full extent of his hatred. “Your very existence annoys the fuck out of me. That good enough for you, angel?”

Saint rolls his eyes as he starts the car and glides out onto the road.

“You just need to skullfuck the shit out of someone,” Caz says, and every pair of eyes lands on him.

Saint smirks, Galen snarls, and Theo is passive. As usual.

Caz beams like he just won a fucking award.

“You are so freaking weird,” I admit, taking another bite of my burger.

Saint watches me eat with a wolfish grin on his face.

“It’s his word of the day,” Theo says, and I arch a brow.

Caz elbows Galen in the gut as he leans toward me, his warm brown eyes lit with excitement. “You know what the Urban Dictionary is, princess?”

Now, it’s my turn to roll my eyes. “Well, duh,” I mumble over a mouthful of burger.

“Caz is addicted to it,” Theo continues explaining.

“And he drives us fucking insane,” Saint cuts in. “He picked skullfuck from the list of trending words this morning, and he’s been trying to fit it into the conversation all day.”

I finish my burger, crumple up the empty paper bag, and throw it on the floor of Saint’s pristine new ride. The wolfish grin vanishes from his face, and I silently fist pump the air as I turn to face Caz. “I think that’s pretty cool. And I’m game to play.”

The goofy smile on his face matches the smug glint in his eyes as he flips Saint off. “The princess loves my geekiness. I’ve just died and gone to heaven.”

Long Lost - RB banner.jpg

“Lexi Blake has set up shop on the intersection of Suspenseful and Sexy, and I never want to leave.”—Laurelin Paige, New York Times bestselling author

Long Lost, an all-new captivating standalone romance in the Masters and Mercenaries Series from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake is out now!


A stolen past

The only thing Tucker remembers of his past is pain. Used in a doctor’s evil experiments, his memories and identity were erased, and his freedom taken. He believed his nightmare was over when he was liberated by the men and women of McKay-Taggart, until he heard the name Steven Reasor. The idea that he could have been involved in the terrible experiments that cost his “brothers” everything crushed him. A desperate attempt to force him to remember the truth almost cost him his life. Now his world is in chaos and his only path to finally uncover the truth and atone for his sins leads to Veronica Croft.

A painful present

Veronica “Roni” Croft knew Dr. Steven Reasor was bad for her, but she also saw a side of the man that no one else knew. Even as she began to believe their employer was hiding something sinister, she was drawn to him like a moth to a flame. Their affair was passionate and intense, but also fraught with danger. When he disappeared under mysterious circumstances, she took her first chance to run and never looked back. She has stayed hidden ever since, running from forces she knows are too powerful to overcome. But now the man she believed was dead, the man she mourned, has returned and needs her help.

A dangerous future

As Tucker and Roni unravel the secrets of his past, a dark force rises and threatens to destroy them. Their only chance for survival will require them to join forces with the Lost Boys’ worst enemy. Only together can they finally unlock Tucker’s past. But as Tucker’s memories begin to come back, will it free them both or tear them apart forever?
