Review – Attracting Aubrey by Avery Flynn

48693737. sy475

Attracting Aubrey; Gone Wild #3 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Avery Flynn

Review Rating:



Avery Flynn delivers comedy, steam, and romance this time while sailing upon the ocean waves.

Aubrey Dean has set sail for a week long singles cruise with her best friends. Aubrey is known for her crazy antics among her friends, but it has been awhile since she has pulled off one of her pranks since moving to a small town where everyone knows everything that happens. It might be this very reason why she began her Insta account to follow her celebrity crush on Carter Hayes, an escape from her small town life where she can ogle, imagine, and dip into fantasy. However, the moment she leaves small town life behind, she jumps back into her old skin and has no trouble pranking her friends. The only pause in her plan is her hot neighbor who also happens to look a lot like Carter Hayes.

Carter Hayes booked himself for a cruise incognito to help him win a new role in an upcoming independent film. He wants to break out of the roles he’s been currently doing and the only way to do that is to prove to the director that he can blend in and lose his superhero identity. Hence, he is now a dental hygienist from Iowa. Upon first arriving on the ship he gets pulled into a pants stealing prank by his ship neighbor, Aubrey, and things only escalate from there. The even weirder thing is, he actually enjoys himself for the first time in a long time and he doesn’t want to leave Aubrey’s side.

Attracting Aubrey is a flaming hot read with lots of laughs, instant chemistry, improv, and smexy good times.


I never dreamed I’d meet my celebrity crush while stealing every single pair of my best friend’s pants.

Trust me, my life is not that wild. In fact, the most excitement I usually get is running my fan-favorite Insta thirst account featuring butt-tastic pics of Hollywood superhero Carter Hayes. So, imagine my shock when, in the middle of the cruise ship hallway, I realize the guy whose shirt I’m stuffing slacks inside of is Carter disguised as a tourist. How I manage not to faint dead away, I’ve got no clue.

When word leaks that Carter might be on board, he asks me to help him maintain his cover. There’s no way I’m gonna say no to that. I just don’t share that I’m the anonymous woman behind the fan account that reported sighting him onboard. No biggie. Right?

However, when things between us go from friendly to hot to OMG-I-can’t-keep-my-clothes-on-around-him, all I can do is hope he never discovers my secret. You see, somewhere along the way, Carter went from an untouchable movie star to the man I’m falling for.

Five friends. One singles cruise. So many sexy shenanigans.

Review – Sexy Love by Carly Phillips

48120863. sy475

Sexy Love; Sexy series #4 
(A standalone novella within a series)

by: Carly Phillips

Review Rating:



Here we are at book four of the Sexy series, but if you thought Carly Phillips miscounted because there were only three owners of the club that made up Club TEN29, well….there were originally four best friends and that included Levi Bennett, whom their club is dedicated after. So, if you wondered what happened to Levi’s baby mama, Amber, Sexy Love is a sweet and steamy novella that will help fill in the answers to those questions.

Amber Davis and her son L.J. (Levi’s son) have made the decision to move closer to the Bennett’s. L.J. is now ten years old and feels it is time for him to spend more time with Levi’s side of the family, but it will also allow her the time to finally return back to college. She was a sophomore not only when she lost Levi, but also when she became a single mother. Her world changed so fast, but it is finally time, now that she will be surrounded by family and friends to get her life back on track. Her only priority is to get her degree, she never imagined to meet a nice man who would wake up her sleepy libido. Unfortunately that man also turns out to be her professor.

Shane Warden is focused on reaching tenure and doesn’t leave a lot of time for dating. When he literally runs into Amber he doesn’t take her for a student and the attraction is instant. When she appears in his class the first day, he’s torn between the attraction he feels and the boundaries set in the teacher/student code. He’s stringent and doesn’t like breaking the rules, for very good reasons.

In this forbidden romance can Shane and Amber figure out how to have a relationship that doesn’t cost them both everything they have been working towards their entire life?


From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carly Phillips comes a new story in her Sexy series…

Learning curves have never been so off-limits.

Professor Shane Warden is on the verge of getting tenure. He never thought he’d see the day, after a false accusation from a student years ago that nearly destroyed his career, and decimated his ability to trust. But the moment he walks into class and lays eyes on the seductive blonde with legs that go on forever and lips he immediately wants to kiss, he knows he’s in trouble.

This time for real.

Single mom Amber Davis is finally living her dream of going back to college. In the ten years since she dropped out to have a baby–and recover from his father’s death–it’s been the goal that always felt just out of reach. Until now. But one look at her hot, sexy professor, and Amber is head over heels in lust. It doesn’t take long before their attraction blazes out of control.

Neither of them can afford a forbidden affair.
Yet it’s the one thing they are powerless to stop.

It will only take one hint of a rumor to destroy everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve… and in this case the rumors are true.

**For fans of Carly’s Sexy Series, Sexy Love is book four in that series.**

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Review – Liar, Liar, Hearts on Fire by Pippa Grant

48659250. sy475

Liar, Liar, Hearts on Fire; Bro Code #3 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Pippa Grant

Review Rating:



A softer romantic comedy that still contains all of the wonderful Pippa elements that make up her wacky worlds, but both Tripp and Lila were characters that had deep emotional factors that made this a more relevant touching story.

Perhaps it’s the pandemic, but Tripp Wilson’s story seemed not only relevant, but I have a daughter who is a hypochondriac. Tripp lives with anti-bacterial gel tucked into his pocket and in our own home we have lived for years with this gel tucked into every crevice of our home for our daughters OCD needs. Tripp’s need to constantly wash everything, keep his kids healthy, and just be an overall caring great father is so endearing he’s very easy to fall in love with. When he lost his wife to the flu, he may have gone a little off the deep end of being a germaphobe, but I seriously understood him on so many levels. When Lila comes into his life, it’s the first time he’s felt anything since losing his wife and he doesn’t really know how to feel about it. He’s been on single mode for so long and focused on just being a father, he hasn’t really thought about his libido, but Lila switches it on and once she does he doesn’t know how to switch it off.

Lila Valentine lost her parents when she was a young girl. Her uncle took over as her guardian, but he immediately shipped her off to boarding school so she really only had herself to rely on. When she inherits the Fireballs baseball team upon his death and has the option to sell it, she declines wanting to feel some sort of connection to the family she never really had. Even though her loss was years ago, it still is very relatable to Tripp’s loss which is still fairly fresh. They understand one another, along with getting under each others skin which makes for a fun, but also emotional read.

While they try hard to work together, while also riling each other up at every opportunity, they also soothe each others sore spots. It’s a lovely story filled with family and sports and tight pants.

The extra fun treat to Liar, Liar, Hearts on Fire is Bro Code. Every member makes an appearance and everytime they pop up is absolutely delicious and lifts the mood for lots of laughs.


Never borrow pants from your brother. Especially if he’s a size smaller than you are, because all that pressure in the junk will short-circuit your brain.


And you’ll lie to a woman in a club about your real name.


Leave her unsatisfied after making out in a bathroom.


Then find out that she’s the one thing standing in the way of your dreams. And she very much doesn’t like being lied to.


Now I have to convince Lila Valentine—the woman I can’t stop thinking about, my biggest regret, and my new boss—that I’m what’s best for the baseball team she’s inherited.


If we can’t work together to save the Fireballs, the commissioner’s forcing a sale and moving them across the country.


I’ll do anything to save my home team.


But the one thing I can’t do?


Keep my hands to myself.


Which would be fine, if she hadn’t been telling me lies this whole time too.
Liar, Liar, Hearts on Fire is a rocking fun romance between a single dad obsessed with baseball, an heiress with secrets, baseball pants, a rundown team, and rabid ducks. It stands alone and comes with a guaranteed happily-ever-after.

New Release – Poison by Jade West

Title: Poison
Author: Jade West
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: March 16, 2020

He was the man who destroyed me. The monster who left me in pieces over a decade ago.
I swore I’d never speak to him again, that I’d never set eyes on him again as long as I lived.
But I was wrong.
When life gets too much and you need to escape, the poison that might kill you becomes oh so tempting.

I craved his perverted ways, his smirk, his laughter as he pushed my body way past its limits.
I needed a release from the crazy. Just once.
Just one night. That’s what I told myself.
No strings, no illusions, no promises. Nothing but the lasting thrill of his flesh on mine.
The lasting hit of his poisonous touch.
But when poison runs through your veins, the way he runs through mine, it’s toxic and eats you alive.

This much passion always comes at a price…

My whole body was screaming out YES, even as my mind was screaming out NO.
He was toxic. Poisonous. The fatality of every scrap of my heart when he’d trashed it all to pieces without even looking back. The man who consumed me, promised me the stars, then destroyed me and left me a betrayed mush on the floor, sobbing my guts up and retching myself to sleep at night.
I hated him.
I’d sworn I’d always hate him.
But I couldn’t stop myself. I couldn’t stop my clit begging and my heart pounding and breath quickening. I couldn’t stop myself giving my needy, filthy shards over to the man who knew how to consume them.
This was me. The real me. The crazy me.
The me everyone I knew would curse at and tell me I was a stupid bitch for letting loose.
The me I’d thrown to the side and ignored through ten years of trying to live a cookie cutter life for my own wellbeing.
And failed.
I’d failed.
I was doomed the second I felt his heat at my back. His breath alive on my neck. His words a whispered hiss at my ear.
“I’ll do more than fuck you, Anna. I’ll take you so fucking hard you’ll be a mess for weeks, and you know it. You know full well the things I’ll fucking do to you, that’s why you’re here.”
Yes. I knew it.
Yes. That’s why I was there.
I let out my first desperate little moan as I turned to face him. His mouth was waiting. Open and fierce and wet.
My lips pressed to his, but his tongue was already set to take mine. It pushed in deep and danced a beautiful dance as his fingers gripped my face and held me tight.
And there it was. That simmer deep inside that you can’t fake or substitute. That heavenly desire that buzzes right through you and blacks out everything else in this life.
He did that to me.
He always had.
And I needed it right now.
I grabbed onto his hair and kissed him like my whole world depended on it. Like he was my salvation. My saviour and destroyer both at once. Enough to drive me out of my mind and lap it up in an orgy of the purest sin.
He was panting now, and there was that smirk of his I knew so well and loved so much, his mouth barely breaking contact.
“You’d better be ready to show me what a filthy little slut you still are.”
“Make me one,” I hissed right back. “Fucking take me.”


Jade has increasingly little to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s plenty happy with this. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted.
Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile

Cover Reveal – Take Two by Heather M Orgeron

Title: Take Two
Author: Heather M. Orgeron
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Cover Design: Juliana Cabrera
Release Date: March 19, 2020


Who says you can’t marry the same mistake twice?

Certainly not Nya Perez…because that’s precisely what she’s done.

Liam Watts is the bane of her existence.
Her first love. Father of her child. And breaker of her heart.

Oh, he’s also her ex-husband. Well, he was, anyway…right up til this morning, when she woke up beside him in a Vegas hotel room, sheathed in satin and tulle with a sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach.

If it were just between the two of them, an annulment would be the obvious solution. After all, they wouldn’t be the first to marry and divorce at the little white chapel in the span of twenty-four hours.

But their daughter’s greatest wish has just been granted, and if there’s one heart Nya wants to protect more than her own, it’s Ellie’s.

So, she promises to give it six months.

There’s no way she’ll be swayed by his thick southern drawl, those well-defined abs, or that annoyingly delectable scruff lining his cheeks.

Nope. She’s got it all under control. Six months of playing house, then everything can go back to the way it was before.

But first she’ll have to muddle through marriage with Liam—take two.

Read Kay’s Review  – Fool Me Twice

When my best friend died of cancer just before her eighteenth birthday, she left her coveted bucket list to me.

The things she already crossed off? Skinny dipping, going to Paris, completing the local hot wing challenge, road tripping to the ocean, and sending out a message in a bottle.

So, it falls on me to finish it for her, to honor her memory. In the next year, it’s my mission to:

1. Dye my hair
2. Have sex
3. Camp out in a tent
4. Go bungee jumping
5. Get revenge on Lincoln Kolb

Most are doable, some terrify me, and then there is the last item on the list. When the raven-haired football god dumped my best friend during senior year of high school, she was devastated. The jerk with charm for days found out she was sick, and betrayed her in the worst way possible.

But he doesn’t know me, I went to school a town over. Now, to fulfill my promise, I’m the newest freshman on the campus where he is the big man. If there is one thing, aside from cheap beer, that a jock can’t pass up, it’s a shiny new girl.

So when I catch his eye, play hard to get, and then fall into his bed, I know my scheme is working to perfection. But what Lincoln can’t see coming is the beatdown I have planned for his ice-cold heart.

Unfortunately, what I never saw coming was the one he had planned for mine.


About the Author:
Author of romance novels such as The Tenth Girl and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.

When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She’s a Jersey girl living in Texas with her husband, daughter and furry son.
