Fool Me Once
(A standalone)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This was my first Nikki Ash novel and I cannot express enough how much I loved it!!

Fool Me Once touched on several tropes which is why I think it touched on so many of my emotions. The story began with a heavy look on the relationship between Blakely and her sister Sierra. The family they now were, the family they lost, and the connection that Blakely was deeply trying to regain with her only remaining family member. There were so many times their relationship reminded me of my daughters and the times they have been close or struggled with their own battles. It broke my heart in pieces reading it and I needed Blakely to find some happy.

When Blakely first meets Keegan it is just meant to be a fling, something to boost her spirits out of the slump she was in and definitely there were to be no feelings involved. At least that is what she kept telling herself. When they parted ways after spring break and she left with a part of Keegan and no way to contact him, her life drastically changed, but perhaps not all changes were a bad thing. How often do we fool ourselves that we aren’t invested, but turn out the bigger fool in the end? Been there and done that.

Four years come and go and the most important people in Blakely’s life are her sister and the one friend who has always been there for her, Brenton. While she only sees him as a friend, he has other ideas. By luck or fate, when Blakely actually runs back into Keegan and he once again turns her life upside down, Brenton doesn’t exactly like the idea of being set aside. Blakely isn’t sure how to make everyone happy, but she also knows she needs each person in her life as they are all important to her. This is the ride and the journey that will make your heart race. What will happen? What has happened? GAH!! What I will tell you is that it is like riding a rollercoaster; you will be really glad you got on once the ride is over, but you might scream during the ride.

Fool Me Once is an emotional ride. It’s heartwarming at times, shocking at others, and such a journey you won’t want to miss it.

Synopsis:

I met Keegan when I was on the beach in Florida.
He literally crashed into my world.
I wasn’t looking for romance, but his two-dimpled charm made my heart go haywire.

We both had one thing in common: we were here to escape our realities.
One week. Just the two of us. Not a care in the world.
I didn’t know it at the time, but that week would forever change my life.

Four years later, and as fate would have it, Keegan and I are brought together again.
It’s as if the universe is telling us this is our second chance.
The more I get to know him, the harder I fall.
Falling hopelessly in love is inevitable with a man like him.

Only the joke’s on me, because the guy I’m falling for isn’t the man I thought he was.
You know how the saying goes: Fool me once
I’ll be damned if I’m fooled again.

Review – One Night Stand In by Lauren Blakely

50188464. sy475

One Night Stand In; Boyfriend Material #3 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Lauren Blakely

Review Rating:

 

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A Lauren Blakely novel never disappoints and I loved reading the rekindling relationship between Lola and Lucas in this second chance romantic comedy!

Two friends that had the potential to be more back in college, but due to a falling out they didn’t, but here we are ten years later and with a crazy night ahead of them filled with one amazing scavenger hunt they have a chance to rekindle, make amends and possibly find something they lost a long time ago.

I adore Blakely’s books for being low drama, high on fun, and they always make me feel good. I’m guaranteed to laugh out loud and potentially blush every single time so seriously, what is NOT to love!!

“My device often has the gall to remind me of my fitness inadequacies with occasional notifications, like You’ve only walked two miles today,  to which I say, Fuck you, phone, I can berate myself just fine, thank you very much.”

I have a FitBit and yes, I too get annoyed. Yet, I wear it everyday and I have panicked, seriously panicked when I have forgotten to wear it. The day did not exist!! I also had to stop and think what is wrong with me? while also fudging the numbers on my app to make sure the day did exist, because who else would know if not my fitbit (I mean it tells me everything else LOL)…I love that I can snort laugh through these moments with Lauren’s characters.

Okay, back to them. Lola and Lucas are another gem couple that you will fall in love with. Their scavenger hunt is fun and really made me wish I had one to do in my immediate future. Lauren Blakely brings out the fun and certainly made me miss my girlfriends.

While each book in the Boyfriend Material series is a standalone, they do work wonderfully together. Each is different, but also awesome in their own way.

What I also love about this series is that these three best friends have not only found their mates but that each one is also somehow connected to the writing industry. Whether an editor, a graphic designer, or a blogger they are all interconnected and supportive of each other. It is a great sisterhood. One of my favorite series of Blakely’s yet.

Synopsis:

Lucas Xavier is the last person I want to spend 24 hours with, let alone two minutes. Exes are exes for a reason. In his case, for a million reasons. Because he’s not only an ex-lover, he’s also an ex-friend. We didn’t just break up – we combusted in a spectacular bonfire of barbs and doors slammed.

Nothing will change that. Not his clever wit, not his ridiculous good looks, not his unfair levels of charm. And definitely not a wild dash through the city that takes us on an accidental scavenger hunt through our past, where we stop for a tango lesson, pancakes and a visit with some llamas.

And certainly not time together to make amends and say we’re sorry.

But, let’s say that was enough…it’s not like you can fall in love in 24 hours.

One Night Stand-In is a Boyfriend Material series standalone! Three best friends. Three outrageous proposals. Three chances to fall in ove. Three brand new standalones from Lauren Blakely!

EXCERPT

I nipped her shoulder. “Too right. And as soon as we’re back from breakfast, I plan on putting you in a comatose state again. But first I need to feed my…” My voice trailed off as I looked for the right word.
She slowly sat up. “Not sure what to call me, huh?”
“Guess not. We’ve been playing house and you’re posing as my fiancée, but that’s different now.”
She nodded slowly as she studied me. “I guess it is.”
I wanted to say the word. Mine. But that was too much and would certainly scare her off. So instead, with a nervous laugh, I said, “Don’t look at me. I haven’t a clue how to do this. But I know staying away from you isn’t really an option I’d like to explore any longer.” God, way to pussy out.
She chewed her lip. “It’s not like I have some kind of manual either. I don’t really— I mean I haven’t really had a lot of relationships. And I don’t really do the whole trusting-people thing, so this is hard.”
Panic flared in my chest. I was fucking this up.
She didn’t want this. I scrambled for a way to make sure she stayed in my life. Fuck. We’d start with the bed. We were good there. I could bring her around with great sex, right? “Why don’t we just take it easy and see where the meandering road leads? Maybe we’ll make a good team.” Fuck. Why did I sound like a complete wanker?
She looked down at her hands before slanting me a glance. “Xander, you’re paying me to be here. It doesn’t feel… right.”
Bollocks. I knew the money would come back to haunt me. “I already wired the rest of the money into your account this morning when I woke up.” My heart hammered as I searched for the right words. Not too clingy, but interested. Yeah, more like desperate, mate. “I want you to stay because you want to.”
She frowned up at me. “Why did you do that? I could be the kind of person to walk out.”
No. Please no. Swagger, mate. Believe it. I shook my head. “Because I’d like the real girlfriend instead of the fake one, if you don’t mind. I mean, I’d like you to stay until I hear about the position on the board of the Trust, but even when you move back to your place, I’d like to see you. A lot. Exclusively.” Way to mark your territory, you knob.
My stomach knotted as I watched her. What if she said no? Well, I’d give her so many orgasms she’d be too weak to say no. That sounded like a solid plan.

EXCERPT

“I can’t believe you said that.”
“Why not? You have to know I’m attracted to you. I’m pretty sure you’re attracted to me. Don’t tell me you haven’t pictured me naked.”
“Oh lord, I am not having this conversation with you.”
“You have, haven’t you?” His dick started to respond to the thought.
“Colt,” she said firmly. “Don’t make me hang up on you.”
He laughed. “Okay, fine. We won’t talk about nakedness anymore. Unless you want to.”
“I don’t want to.”
“You sound uptight. Know what’s good for releasing tension?”
“Colt.”
Colt laughed again. “Kidding, Ang. Sorta.”

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Mountain Danger
Series: Wild Mountain Men #4
Author: Vanessa Vale
Genre: Contemporary Western
Release Date: February 25, 2020
BLURB

Eve Miranski has spent weeks trying to find a killer who’s roaming free in Cutthroat. She’s also working hard to protect her battered heart from two alpha cowboys who aren’t making it easy. Yeah, two. After they meet at a holiday party, Shane Nickel and Finch Anderson have made it clear to Eve they’re interested in one thing. Her.

He might be the son of a movie star, but Shane Nickel’s content living out of the spotlight. When he meets the stubborn detective, his protective instincts kick in. He should let her go, find a woman whose work doesn’t require a gun and handcuffs (although he can think of some fun uses for the handcuffs) and not tasked with hunting down a murderer. His heart—and other parts of him—want Eve.

As a forest ranger, Finch Anderson spends more time in the wilderness than in town. That suits him just fine, until he meets Eve and everything changes. He wants her, wants everything he never thought he could have, but how can a felon and a feisty detective get along?

The men’s doubts won’t matter when new evidence in the Erin Mills case is discovered and the identity of the murderer is revealed. The only thing they’ll have to worry about is keeping Eve alive because the killer won’t be caught without a fight.

Excerpt

“Hello, Remy,” she said in greeting when she finally reached him.

“Tempest,” he replied with a cordial nod.

She cocked her head playfully to the side, momentarily drawing his gaze to the way she’d swept her dark hair into an intricate style that was held together with crystal and pearl pins. The elegant updo left her shoulders and slender neck bare, emphasizing the pair of sparkling ruby earrings hanging from her lobes.

“Dare I say you look like you’re about to bolt for the exit,” she said, a light accusation in her tone.
He inhaled a deep breath—big mistake—because the scent of her soft, feminine perfume went straight to his dick. It took effort to remain outwardly unaffected, and for her, he allowed a smile to ease across his lips. “Guilty as charged.” He planned on doing exactly that as soon as she went on her way.

Her perfectly shaped brows furrowed in a concerned frown. “Are you not having a good time?

“Don’t take this personally, but fairy tales are not my thing,” he replied, his tone wry.

“How do you know that for certain?” she countered, a flirtatious glimmer now sparking in her amber eyes. “If you leave right now, you’ll never know if something magical might happen tonight.”

He huffed out a laugh at her whimsical, romantic notion, though the sound that erupted from his throat was as rough as sandpaper. “I’m not looking for anything magical to happen.” In fact, he’d do his best to avoid anything even remotely close to it.

She shrugged a smooth, bare shoulder. “Sometimes, it’s better to leave all expectations and cynicism at the door and just see where the evening takes you.”

He shook his head in disagreement. “Trust me when I say my cynicism is well earned.” And now he was determined that all that skepticism would protect what little was left of his soul from being further ransacked. “I was happy to come and support the Wilder Way Foundation, and now that I’ve done that, I think it’s best if I go. Good night, Tempest.”

He started to walk away, but she grabbed at his tuxedo sleeve. “Remy, wait.”

Not wanting to be rude, he stopped and glanced back at her.

The smile she gave him was so sweet and persuasive it made something in his chest shift ever so slightly. “You can’t leave without having at least one dance.”

Oh, yes, he could, and he shored up his resolve against that imploring look of hers. “I don’t dance.”

The hand on his arm slid down, until her cool, slender fingers curled around his, not only startling him but ensnaring him in more ways than one. “It’s a ballad,” she pointed out of the song Raevynn Walsh was now singing. “Everyone can slow dance. It takes minimal skill . . . unless you don’t trust yourself to stand that close to me?”

Her comment was underscored with a subtle challenge, an undeniable dare that alluded to the attraction between them that was getting increasingly difficult for him to resist.

“Just one dance,” she persisted oh so sweetly, her husky voice taking on a teasing lilt as she leaned in closer. “I solemnly promise not to cast any kind of fairy-tale spell on you.”

Bold and determined Tempest Wilder didn’t give him another chance to turn her down. With her hand secured in his, she pulled him toward the dance floor in front of the stage, which was already filled with other couples, and he would have looked like a jackass if he rebuffed her at this point. Once she found a spot for the two of them, she turned back around and didn’t hesitate to step as close as their bodies would allow.

The provocative feel of her soft breasts pressing against his chest and her supple thighs skimming along his was like a fucking shock to his celibate system, and he automatically tensed in response to the sexy female curves aligning perfectly to his more masculine frame. It was all he could do to keep his dick from getting hard as a spike against her lower stomach.

Still holding his one hand, she smoothed her other one up the lapel of his jacket and around his neck. Clearly sensing his discomfort, she tipped her head back and gave him a flirty smile, no doubt meant to tease him.

“So, when it comes to slow dancing, the man usually puts his arm around the woman’s waist,” she suggested, since he hadn’t yet done so. “And if he really likes the woman he’s with, he’ll splay his hand low on her back and pull her in close.”

Oh, he knew how to slow dance, but just the thought of putting his hands on her so intimately was wreaking havoc with his libido, and he had a feeling she was well aware of his predicament, too. It was another sexy dare from her, and while he’d spent the past few years avoiding this kind of close contact with Tempest, the sexually starved man in him who desired this woman slipped past all his carefully erected walls.

Fuck it, he decided. What could happen in a room full of people? Giving in to the temptation to touch her, to enjoy the feel of her in his arms, even for a few minutes, he placed his hand on her bare back and slowly caressed his palm all the way down to the base of her spine. The subtle pressure of his hand against her smooth skin drew her as close as the two of them could get, aligning their hips in a way that was suggestively carnal.

Breathing became difficult . . . He hadn’t been this close to a woman in over three years, and there was no denying she felt so damn good. She was incredibly soft, she smelled like heaven, and she made him want to do something wild and wicked and uncharacteristic—like take her somewhere dark and private where he could give in to the lust clamoring inside him.

An unmistakable shiver coursed through her as they shifted in time to the slow song. With her staring into his eyes, her own darkened with awareness as she moved her head to the side of his to speak into his ear. “See, touching me wasn’t so bad, was it?”

“You’re bad,” he murmured, shocking himself with his own playful response when he’d been so indifferent to women for years. It was as though this woman was rousing his sex drive, along with a more indulgent part of him, from a long, deep slumber. The thought was both frightening and exhilarating.

She drew her head back and laughed. To his surprise, the light, sensual sound eased the rest of the tension in his body, allowing him to just enjoy the moment with her.

She gave him a cheeky grin. “Just for the record, Mr. Lowell, I can be very bad, depending on the circumstance.”

New Release – Crazy Heifer by Lani Lynn Vale

Image may contain: one or more people

The Valentine Boys #2
Release Date: February 25
 
I fell in love with his rope skills. I stayed because somehow he took hold of my heart and made it his.
Callum Valentine didn’t mean to eavesdrop. Then again? When a man is calling a woman fat right in front of your table, it’s kind of hard not to intervene. Especially when the town’s most beautiful creature ever is the one being called fat.
Desi just wants to be left alone. After an ugly divorce, she thinks she’s in the clear. Then her ex takes it upon himself to continue to make her life miserable, giving Desi no choice but to take it or leave.
In fact, her bags were nearly all the way packed when Callum poked his nose into the most embarrassing spectacle the town of Kilgore has ever witnessed. The moment he declares her his and off limits, everything changes—and definitely not for the better.
As if things couldn’t get worse than being called a pitiful, fat heifer in front of the hottest man she’s ever seen, Callum has to go and say that she’s his, and they have to play a game that she’s not quite sure she wants to be playing.
But before her eyes, things change. And suddenly the rules of the game aren’t clear. And they’re crossing boundaries neither one of them see coming.

When hot as sin Landon Bennet offers sexy songstress Vivienne Clark a summer residency at his popular Manhattan nightclub, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime and she can’t resist. Add in the man’s obvious interest and seductive attention and life is perfect. Until she puts together the pieces of his past.
