Unforgettable AMAZON

Want another bite?” Then she started to laugh. “I know how much you like local cherries.”

Tipping back my beer, I narrowed my eyes at her, then set the bottle down with a thunk. “What is that supposed to mean?”

She shrugged. “You liked mine, didn’t you?”


April laughed even harder and sucked on the spoon.

“Wait a minute. Wait a minute.” I sat up straight and blinked at her. “Are you serious? You were a virgin that night?”

Unforgettable - SP


Back then, I had it all.

Wicked fastball. Killer instinct. Cocky grin. Full package.

(And believe me, I knew how to score.)

My senior year, I was a first round draft pick with a two-million-dollar signing bonus. Before I could even legally buy myself a beer, I made my Major League debut.

Point is, I was invincible.

Until one day I wasn’t.

After tanking my career—during the World Series, no less—the last thing I want to do is return to my hometown, where every jerk in a ball cap has an opinion about what went wrong with my arm. So when my sister drags me back to town for her wedding, I vow to get in and out of there as quickly as possible.

Then I run into April Sawyer.

In high school we were just friends, but I’d always wanted her, and I’d never forgotten her—the red hair, the incredible smile, the crazy, reckless thing we did in the back of my truck the night we said goodbye. It’s been eighteen years, but one look at her and I feel like my old self again. I can still make her laugh, she can still take me down a notch, and when the chemistry between us explodes, it’s even hotter this time around—and I don’t want it to end.

But just when I think I’m ready to let go of the past and get back in the game, life throws me a curveball I never saw coming.

Cover Reveal – Hasty by Julia Kent

Title: Hasty
Series: Do-Over #4
Author: Julia Kent
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Cover Design: Hang Le
Release Date: July 28, 2020



I never thought my perp walk would lead to true love.

Then again, I never thought I’d be arrested on RICO charges and hauled away in zip ties on camera for the world to see, minutes after closing the most amazing deal of my career.

And all of it in front of my biggest rival, billionaire wunderkind Ian McRory.

I am broke.

I am disgraced.

I am alone.

I am a sucker.

But the worst part? I have to go back to my hometown and live in my bedroom filled with relics from my childhood.

Lisa Frank never made me so mad before.

Just when I needed a rescue, I got one — in the form of help from my biggest rival.

He can’t bring back my money.

He certainly can’t bring back my reputation or my pride.

But there’s one thing he can bring back to me.

A sense of hope.

Maybe even love.

Ian sees something in me no one else does, and he’s relentless about making me see it, too. As we grow closer, I’m starting to see that while my entire life used to be a lie, the truth is staring me in the present — and it’s a truth I like very, very much, hot eyes and gorgeous smile and all.

But I have to be careful.

I can’t be too —

That’s right.


The final book in the USA Today bestselling Do-Over Series (Fluffy, Perky, Feisty), as Mallory’s sister, Hastings “Hasty” Monahan gets her turn at a happily ever after that starts off with an arrest.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julia Kent writes romantic comedy with an edge. Since 2013, she has sold more than 2 million books, with 4 New York Times bestsellers and more than 19 appearances on the USA Today bestseller list. Her books have been translated into French and German, with more titles releasing in 2019.

From billionaires to BBWs to new adult rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every contemporary romance she writes. Unlike Shannon from Shopping for a Billionaire, she did not meet her husband after dropping her phone in a men’s room toilet (and he isn’t a billionaire she met in a romantic comedy).

She lives in New England with her husband and three children where she is the only person in the household with the gene required to change empty toilet paper rolls.

New Release – Looking to Score by CoraLee June and Carrie Gray


Looking to Score by CoraLee June and Carrie Gray is LIVE and FREE with KU!

Looking to Score is like the book equivalent of comfort food- goes down easy and leaves you feeling full and content. This book is funny, charming, heart-warming, insanely clever, and JUST what we need. I simply LOVED it and could not put it down.” ~The Romantic Rush Blog

He’s like literally the worst.

Oakley Davis is the star running back at our University, and the reason I’ve broken my vow to avoid the college party scene. Thanks to a mixup with my advisor, I’m now serving my Public Relations internship as a glorified babysitter to the party-hard football players.

Specifically, Oakley.

He’s impossible to manage. His Instagram is full of half-naked, drunk photos and he’d rather attend parties than practice. His brand needs some serious work, and when he’s not driving me insane, he’s sleeping his way through the entire female population.

But I’m determined. I have plans to graduate a semester early and nothing or no one will get in my way. I’m a Virgo, after all. Oakley Davis might be a privileged, cocky, football star, but I’m Amanda Matthews; and I’ll do whatever it takes to get my A.

I have to make sure I don’t end up falling in love with the idiot, first.

I have always loved to read. In kindergarten, I was the weird kid sitting in the reading nook by myself instead of trying to get more snacks. I’m excited to be putting my own voice on the page and watching a story I helped create come to life. I still love to read, but I also really like snacks.

I grew up in Chicago but recently moved back to the Dallas area where I live with my husband and son.

I have my Bachelor of Science in Biology. I spent a year researching chimpanzees and gorillas while I was in Chicago and then I spent another two months on a chimpanzee sanctuary trying to convince headstrong chimps to cooperate. Pro tip – grapes are a pretty hot bargaining tool. They work wonders with my toddler too.

We were caught up in the sins of our parents.

Margaret Silver brushed the hair from her forehead and placed her hands at her hips. “Whew! That was a job. We did that in less than a quarter of the time I’d calculated.”
“It helped that they were just old books neither of us wanted. Nothing to sort, ponder over, Mom.”
“I don’t even know why he had so many. I mean, this house is so tiny, and I never saw him read one of them. Did you?”
“I think he was going for the osmosis type of learning. Having them around him made him feel smarter. Maybe he learned without reading.”
If ever a man could do that, his dad would be able to.
“I guess. It was always something I wanted to ask him, and I just forgot. Why he would want to hang on to books he never read will always be a mystery, then.”
Ned stacked the last box near the front door. “Mom, should I load these up in the truck? I can drop them off at the library downtown tomorrow, if you like.”
“Thank you, Ned.” Then she noticed another small stack of books on the coffee table she’d set aside. “You know I thought perhaps you’d like these. The one on the top is a book of poetry about the sea. Maybe you should have it.”
She held it out to him. He didn’t want to take it, but also couldn’t turn it away.

Just the fact that someone may be reading my ‘bio’ thrills me. What does one say in an author bio? Well, I LOVE to write! Sometimes characters talk to me in my head (in a non-psychotic way) and I have to get what they are saying out on paper! So, here we are!  J

I am a part-time juvenile probation officer and full-time wife, but I spend the majority of the time helping my two favorite, college-aged sons navigate through life and hopefully become the best humans they can be.

I am a huge fan of the Kansas Jayhawks, the Oregon Ducks, the Chicago Cubs (I have a dog named Wrigley) and the Kansas City Chiefs.

I’m terribly addicted to music—ALLLLL kinds and driving in the car with the sunroof open and radio turned up helps the creative juices flow.

I am deliciously addicted to queso and cupcakes; but even with that…I like to slowly kill my body with Crossfit. I’m annoyingly sarcastic.

People ask me ‘what has been your favorite book to write’—I would have to say my original series. (I think it sold 100 copies)  J   FINALLY, I’m tweaking them! My heart was poured into these books—but they needed tweaking.  Slick was my Amazon best seller, but every one of them mean something to me.

In the end, I truly believe life is taken way too seriously by most. I say enjoy every moment, have an adult beverage and READ!! Cheers….

New Release – Riot House by Callie Hart

RIOT HOUSE by Callie Hart
Release Date: April 29th

Add to Goodreads:




They might be richer than gods, but they’re morally bankrupt.

As far as the boys who run America’s most exclusive international academy are concerned, I’m an unwelcome interloper, an inconvenience, and they’re determined to make my life a living hell.

When Wren Jacobi sets eyes on Wolf Hall Academy’s newest inductee, all he sees is an easy mark. A reserved little girl with a target painted on her back. He knows nothing of my troubled past, though. Nothing of my mother’s suspicious death, or the horrific treatment I’ve had to endure at the hands of my psychotic father.

And he has no idea of the lengths that I, unassuming little Elodie Stillwater, will go to in order to break the savage beast who dreams of breaking me first.

There’s a wolf stalking the forests that surround my new school.
Little does he know…
There are far scarier predators lurking out there in the dark.

ReviewRead Kay’s Review: Riot House




About the Author:
Callie Hart is a USA TODAY bestselling author of contemporary and dark romance. Her Blood & Roses Series is currently being translated into multiple languages all over the world. Having spent the last seven years living in Australia, Callie now calls Los Angeles home, where she enjoys hiking, spending time at the beach, daily hot yoga classes, and generally pretending to be a hipster.

Callie is often asked, ‘What is dark romance?’ Her reply is always the same: Dark romance is a story that makes you fall for the anti-hero. It is a story that will make you walk a tightrope, question your sanity, and have you checking your moral compass at the door. If you love a good story about a very bad boy, then dark romance is for you.’

Lincoln Reeves may be a pro golfer and revered swing coach, but when I met him, he was just one more person telling me I wasn’t good enough.

So, I did what any girl in my position would do. I told him to get lost and to take his arrogant, annoying smirk with him. I never expected to see him again. I certainly didn’t expect to run into him that same night after one too many tequila shots.

Turns out, he’s kind of a big deal. Okay, fine, a really big deal. In fact, he might be the one person that can take my game to the next level.

Convincing him to help will be difficult.

Not throwing my club at his handsome face when he makes me work harder than I thought humanly possible will be excruciating.

But not falling for him will be the hardest thing of all.

New Release – Spooning Leads to Forking by Kilby Blades

Title: Spooning Leads to Forking
Series: Hot in the Kitchen #2
Author: Kilby Blades
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 28, 2020

Leaving her name—and her job as a top food critic—behind in New York, Shea Summers seeks respite in Sapling. Her borrowed mountain getaway seems perfect for writing her opus. It’s also perfect for riding out a messy divorce and hiding the roomful of cash she kind-of-sort-of stole from her ex.

Too bad Sapling is a remote, three-restaurant town with food that leaves much to be desired. Sexy grocer, Dev Kingston, may be Shea’s saving grace. The way he looks at her with his aspen-green eyes shows her everything her marriage was missing, and he can special-order every delicacy she craves.

But Shea’s not the only one who isn’t what she seems. Dev moonlights as a sheriff’s deputy, a fact she finds out too late; a string of suspicious crimes finds newcomers under scrutiny; and her ex is going to extremes to find out where she is.

Taking the money and living under an assumed name might be on the right side of wrong, but dating Dev is a dangerous game. She’s still running and he’s still the law.

Act natural, Shea instructed herself after she’d parked, let herself out and slammed shut her car door. Slinging her bag over her shoulder, she gave herself a pep talk as she took measured steps toward the door:

People go to the market more than twice a week in a lot of cultures.

It’s not a crime anywhere to show up looking cute. Own it.

The first part of her little routine was being the first to say hello. He was almost always near the front—not at either of the three lonely registers—behind a computer at the customer service desk. The service area was on a raised platform and sat adjacent to the leftmost register. Shea surmised he could process refunds for customers—only there were never many customers. Weekend mornings aside, it wasn’t uncommon for she and Dev to be the only ones in the store.

“Oh, hey, Dev,” she said breezily, casting him a slightly lingering smile. Sapling was a place where people stopped to greet one another. There was eye contact and genuine curiosity, and a growing warmth as people started to get to know her. When it came to Shea, Dev’s prevalent emotion seemed to be amusement.

Far be it from her to disown her own quirks. Her culinary requests were bizarre—bordering on outlandish—even for a health food specialty store. She didn’t dress like anyone else in Sapling, despite having once thought the garments she’d cherry-picked from her New York closet to be quite tame. If not for Dallas Eaton—the guy who wore 80s track suits and walked down Oliver Street with his macaw on his shoulder—Shea could win an award for most unusual fashion sense in town.

“Mornin’ Shea.”

Dev’s warm baritone made her as melty as Nutella on oven-fresh brioche. She’d come to crave it like sugar. As expected, he sat in front of his laptop and the desk was littered with papers. Apart from Mondays and Thursdays, when the deliveries came, he tended to be glued to his seat, unless he was helping some random customer.

Half the fun for Shea was being a customer who needed help. Seeking his guidance had become addictive. At the beginning, it had been legitimate to confirm whether he carried things like prepared guacamole, pre-bottled, MCT-enhanced cold brew coffee and manuka honey. But she’d been shown the location of so many items, and knew the store so well by then, her new help requests were pure theater. Asking for obscure items tucked away in odd corners of the store was her newest gambit.

Pushing back in his rolling chair in a single, smooth motion, Dev got to his feet. Shea was ridiculously charmed by the gesture. Men who walked on the outside and rose when a lady walked into the room were a dying breed. Sure, she could chalk it up to attentive customer service, but her intuition told her Devon Kingston was a real gentleman.

“Looking for anything special?” She caught the bemused smirk that played at his lips a second before said lips captured his straw. He drank dark green juice from the same clear cup every day. Whatever he put in there, it was working. Dev was the picture of vitality—tall and lean and built like a cyclist, or a swimmer, or a rock climber or the player of any endurance sport. Shea didn’t know when he played said sports because he always seemed to be at the market. Still, a healthy tan proved he found time to be outdoors.

His beard was lustrous and dark—in her fantasies she had touched it—and it was impossibly soft. It matched silky hair that was shaven on the sides and grown in on the top and tousled just right. Spiked up at the roots somehow with ends that fell into form without looking stiff, it managed to achieve a frightening shine. But his eyes—God, his eyes—they were the real stars of her fantasies, not dull green like his juice—bright and vibrant like aspen leaves. Even his skin seemed to glow.

“Any chance my order is in?” Shea asked, knowing full well today was Wednesday and deliveries were Mondays and Thursdays.

“Sorry. You’re a day early,” he said.

“Oh.” She pouted a little, then appeared to recover from feigned disappointment.

Dev leaned his hip against the counter and his lips eased into a slow smile. “Guess you’ll just have to come back tomorrow.”

The rumble of his voice gave her a shiver. “I guess I will.”

New Release – Mayhem’s Betrayal by Lindsay Cross

Title: Mayhem’s Betrayal
Series: Operation Mayhem #5
Author: Lindsay Cross
Genre: Military Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 28, 2020

In this sizzling and suspenseful Operation Mayhem novel by USA Today Bestselling author, a soldier betrayed falls for the doctor who changed him.

He’s searching for revenge. She’s searching for redemption. The answer to their dilemma lies in each other…

Dr. Melissa Averton devoted her life to saving Team Mayhem. Living with the guilt that she’d helped create the serum that had not only enhanced their abilities, but tied them to a life of pain. She practically lived in her lab, testing and researching, spending every waking hour trying to undo the damage.

John Dawson lived for revenge. His team had abandoned him, left in the hands of General Rainier to die. But he hadn’t died – he’d survived and thrived under the guidance of the General. Surrendering under the guise of needing his Team’s help, he infiltrated their secret lair, turning himself over for voluntary 24-hour observation. He’d play nice, pretend he was back and then…

The best laid plans.

Dawson didn’t count on the very sexy doctor monitoring him morning, noon and night. Poking. Prodding. Invading his dreams. Turning his plans inside out. His instinct to kill morphed into an undeniable need to protect and possess.

Melissa took one look at him and knew he needed her. Her heart beat fast. Her hands shook. She knew he was dangerous. The men of Mayhem had warned her. All her logic and all the evidence told her that Dawson was unsavable, but…this time she couldn’t rely on her brain, her heart was taking over.

Time was running out. She had to convince Dawson to trust not only his Team, but himself. Dawson had to see the truth, before he loses the one woman who can save him.

New Release – Asking For Trouble by Amy Andrews

Image may contain: 1 person, hat, beard and text

Who better to play wingman to a girl getting her groove back than a smoking-hot cowboy? Asking For Trouble, an all-new romance from USA Today bestselling author Amy Andrews, is available now!

Image may contain: 3 people, phone

After three years in Credence trying to fade into the background, Della Munroe is sick of being invisible. She’s ready to take back control. To live a little. Hell, she’s ready to see what this dating fuss is all about. And if that means she has to download Tinder and date every guy in Colorado, then she’s up for it.

After her first disastrous attempt, she decides navigating online dating would be better with a wingman, and there’s no better person for it than Tucker Daniels. After all, he is a man. And he owns a bar, which practically makes him a relationship expert. He’s also her older brother’s best friend. Yes, she may have the teeniest tiny inconvenient crush on him, but he’s always had her back.

Tucker Daniels would rather eat broken glass than watch Della go out with a bunch of douchebag dudes only out for one thing. Unfortunately, he’s never been able to say no to her, and before he knows it, Tucker’s not only vetting her dates—he’s teaching her to drive, helping her move out, and buying her a puppy!

But when Della wants him to tutor her in more intimate arts, he freaks out. Because this little sister is strictly off-limits, and saying yes to Della is asking for a whole lot of trouble.

Review – Clutch Player by Nikki Ash

52190483. sy475

Clutch Player; A Cocky Hero Club Novel 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Nikki Ash

Review Rating:



Clutch Player is filled with all the warm fuzzies!!

This is a second chance love story about a wonderful, understanding baseball player and a beautiful mother who puts her children first and hopes for a second chance love. This entire romance I was filled with good feelings and couldn’t stop smiling, even when I was blubbering at the end. Nikki Ash never disappoints in writing a wonderful second chance love story.

Harper and Landon date in high school, but when Landon gets drafted by the MLB right out of school, their time gets cut short. Trying to keep a long distance relationship up is difficult and time eventually passes.

It appears fate steps in when a blind date sets them up and they are able to reconnect, but Harper feels her baggage is huge as an ex-wife with two children, but Landon refuses to be pushed away. This is their second chance and he wants Harper, baggage and all.

Clutch Player references characters in British Bedmate by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, but you don’t have to have read it to enjoy this story. This is a complete standalone.


Clutch player: an athlete who is good under pressure and performs highly impossible plays in a quick and almost impossible amount of time.

I fell in love when I was sixteen. Landon was my entire world and I thought he would be my forever. But I was young and dumb, and with one error in judgement, I destroyed any chance of a future we could’ve had together, along with our hearts.

Twelve years later and I’m going through the motions of life, but not actually living. Which is why I let my friends, Bridget and Simon, set me up on a blind date. Turns out, it’s not so blind after all. Because the man sitting in front of me is the same man who’s held onto my heart all these years.

They call me a Clutch Player because I’m good under pressure and quick on my feet. I was also quick to fall in love. The first time it was with baseball, the second was with Harper. And for a short time I had them both.

Until I lost Harper and all I had left was baseball.

For years, I focused on my career. I had accepted that baseball was my one true love.

Until I saw her again. I never imagined we’d ever get a second chance, but now that she’s sitting right across from me, I know there’s no way in hell I’m going to let her go again.

*Clutch Player is a complete standalone, second chance, single parent romance novel*

“Tell me something about you, Evie.” Evie’s gaze darted to Luca, then away. She chewed her bottom lip, seemingly contemplating whether to tell him something or not.
“I like computers.” Luca’s brows shot up. It wasn’t a surprise, he’d suspected as much, but he thought she’d share something trivial, like a favorite color.
“Makes sense. You learned how to use the online system at work pretty quickly.” Evie’s eyes dropped to her feet at the compliment, but Luca saw a hint of a smile on her lips. “What do you spend most of your time doing on computers?”
Evie shrugged, looking uncomfortable for a moment. “Not much. Just some gaming and things.”
Lie. Evie had just told Luca a lie. He could tell by her pupils dilating, her gaze darting away. There had also been a slight hitch in her heart rate. Why would she lie about that?
“Ever thought about studying IT?” Luca pushed.
There was another pause before Evie’s gaze dropped, and she continued, “No. I, uh . . . it hadn’t really crossed my mind.”
Another lie. Interesting.
As Evie took another step, her foot caught on something, and Luca could see she was going to tumble down. Catching her arm with his lightning reflexes, Luca held her body against his. Her skin was warm to touch where her shirt had risen slightly.
When Evie glanced up. Luca could smell vanilla and strawberries on her. She was all soft and delicate, where he was hard and not delicate. He had to fight the urge to pull her head up and press his lips to hers.
“Go on a date with me.”
It was a statement, but Luca still needed a yes. Evie looked taken aback. Luca was a bit too. He hadn’t anticipated those words to leave his mouth, but now that they had, they felt right. Knowing what kind of response he was going to receive before she spoke the words, Luca patiently waited to rebut.
“I can’t.”
Wishing she would expand, he was disappointed when only silence followed.
Not willing to give up so easily, Luca lowered his head and placed his lips next to her ear.
“Go on a date with me.”
He felt the shiver run up her spine. Evie’s head turned, and her lips were a mere few centimeters from his. Her warm breath touched his lips. If he just lowered his head a fraction, they would be touching.
The indecision was clear to see in her eyes, but beneath that, he could see the desire. It was almost a desperate yearning to say yes. Deciding he didn’t want to play fair, Luca pulled Evie closer. She wanted him as much as he wanted her.
“Say yes,” Luca started a gentle stroke on the inside of the wrist as he whispered the words into her ear. “Please.”
Trailing his mouth down her neck, his lips never touched her, but the promise was there.

Release Day/New Release, Year in Releases - 2020

New Release – My Favorite Souvenir by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward


A Contemporary Romance Novel

New York Times Bestselling Authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

My planned trip for two unexpectedly turned into a trip for one. Rather than let my breakup get me down, I packed my bags and decided a week at a luxury resort was just what I needed.
But one calamity after the next, and suddenly I was stuck without a hotel room, along with a few hundred other people.
It looked like my fancy vacation was about to turn into me sleeping on the hotel lobby floor.
Until I overheard a gorgeous man pretending to be someone he wasn’t in order to steal a reservation from a guest who hadn’t shown up yet.
When I realized there were two rooms, instead of calling him out, I pretended to be his sister. That’s how the story of “Milo and Maddie Hooker” began.
We were the Hookers.
My depressing trip quickly made a U-turn into an adventure.
My fake brother spent the next few days showing me around his hometown.
When it was time to leave, neither of us really wanted to go yet.
So, instead of flying back to our respective homes, we ventured on a road trip.
At every stop, we’d pick up souvenirs.
But as hot as our chemistry was, we never crossed the line.
Milo knew I’d just come out of a tough relationship and didn’t want to mess with a vulnerable woman.
So instead, at the end of our trip, we made a pact to meet again in three months.
It was always my intention to meet him.
But when I got back home, reality hit in a big way.
And I worried I may have lost my handsome stranger forever.
Was there a place for him in my future?
Or had the memory of him just become my favorite souvenir?

Review – Looking to Score by Carrie Gray and Coralee June

52993796. sy475

Looking to Score 
(A standalone)

by: Carrie Gray and Coralee June

Review Rating:



Looking To Score is filled with hilarity and the pick me up I totally needed. It was read cover to cover without being put down once! Loved it, loved it, loved it!

I was chuckling through the entire book, sharing passages out loud because the hilarity just had to be shared! Looking To Score is told completely from Amanda’s POV and her head is a funny place to be. Like most women, she still has her share of self-doubt and insecurities, but she works hard to overcome them and I love how hard she works at it. Her organization and “take-on-the-world” attitude is awesome, plus it is what catches the eye of one disorganized and out of control football player, Oakley Davis.

Oakley may have everyone else eating out of the palm of his hand, but that hand needs to be washed because who knows where its been. Step in, one amazing publicist, Amanda Mathews. She needs to clean up his image which is no small feat. While working together they discover that they might have more in common than they would have ever thought and sometimes it takes only one person to believe in you.

While Looking To Score is filled with laughter it is also a story about two people trying to figure out a relationship who haven’t really dated before which creates a lot of sweet swoon and hot steam.

GAH, these two together are the best! Digging beneath Oakley’s exterior is panty-melting. It’s hard to believe there is a decent guy hiding in there, especially when you remember who he was when you first met him. It proves that the right person brings out the best in you.


He’s like literally the worst.

Oakley Davis is the star running back at our University, and the reason I’ve broken my vow to avoid the college party scene. Thanks to a mixup with my advisor, I’m now serving my Public Relations internship as a glorified babysitter to the party-hard football players.

Specifically, Oakley.

He’s impossible to manage. His Instagram is full of half-naked, drunk photos and he’d rather attend parties than practice. His brand needs some serious work, and when he’s not driving me insane, he’s sleeping his way through the entire female population.

But I’m determined. I have plans to graduate a semester early and nothing or no one will get in my way. I’m a Virgo, after all. Oakley Davis might be a privileged, cocky, football star, but I’m Amanda Matthews; and I’ll do whatever it takes to get my A.

I have to make sure I don’t end up falling in love with the idiot, first.

Review – Hood River Rat by K. Webster

53147372. sy475

Hood River Rat; Hood River Hoodlums #1 
(A standalone within a series)

by: K. Webster

Review Rating:



Swooney, Swooney, Swooney!! I am feeling all the Swoon!! Hollis and Roan have swept me off my feet and I’m floating in their cloud.

Hood River Rat is filled with angst, emotions, heat, passion, tension, longing, and two boys from very different walks of life just trying to figure out how to survive it all.

Mid-senior year of high school, Hollis English has moved across the country with his mother and two sisters when his less than caring father discovered he was gay. The normally optimistic, happy Hollis didn’t get off the best start at his new school when he has a first run in was with the Hoodlums at school. Everyday only gets worse and his stomach is constantly in knots. If only their leader wasn’t so good looking perhaps that wouldn’t make it worse and he could hate him, but Roan is different when he’s alone. It’s confusing and Hollis isn’t normally confused when it comes to guys.

Roan Hirsch, part of the Hoodlums, doesn’t have the best home life. With a drugged out mother and a father in prison, his primary focus is on him and his sister making it out of Hood River one day alive. What he doesn’t need is a preppy kid getting in his way and messing up his life, unfortunately that is exactly what it feels like at every turn when Hollis shows up at his school. If he could ignore the new kid he would, but he’s shoved himself into every aspect of his life. At school, after school, basketball, even his dreams. He can’t seem to escape him and lately he’s not sure if he wants to and that confuses him too.

These two guys are from very different backgrounds, however they are both thrown together through some similar situations. Roan doesn’t like Hollis on principal alone. Period. On the flipside, Hollis is the type of guy who gives everyone a chance before passing judgement, so he tries to like Roan before disliking him. Neither initially have “feelings” for the other because neither are even thinking along those lines.

Roan has never been with a guy before, so he’s confused by his body’s reaction to Hollis at first. Hollis is just trying to survive school and because Roan has only been with girls he doesn’t pick up the vibe of interest. This makes for an an intense longing and angsty, burning build-up between them. When they do finally ignite…holy hotness!!

Get ready to swoon hard for Roan. Here is a guy who has never been in a relationship ever, but when he falls…dang. Hood River Rat is so intense not only for their love story, but for the other storylines too. It’s a real page turner to find out what happens to everyone.


From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a MM high school bully romance called Hood River Rat!

Hood River was supposed to be the change I needed.
A fresh start.
An escape from my painful past.
Better in every way.

I’m a popular guy. Approachable. I make friends easily.
Cool car. Nice clothes. Good attitude.
Everything will be fine.

School is school.
I’ll keep my head down until graduation and try not to stick out.
College will be here before I know it.

Yet my first day proves to be anything but easy.
The Hood River Hoodlums—our school’s most notorious group of bad boys—have put a target on my back.
Their leader, Roan, hates me.
He calls me Rat.
To him and his friends, I’m a loser who doesn’t belong at their school.

I could pretend I don’t care about their hate.
If only Roan wasn’t so hot.
He’s mean, cruel, and sexy as hell.
My nemesis is impossible to ignore…and a secret part of me doesn’t want to.

Here I thought being gay was the worst of my problems.
Turns out, being gay and crushing on your enemy takes the cake.

This is a full-length high school enemies-to-lovers and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book one in the Hood River Hoodlum series that will have interlinking storylines. Hood River Rat can be read as a standalone and starts off a four-book planned series that gives each Hoodlum a book. This is the only MM story. The others are MF.

Review -Riot House by Callie Hart

51976550. sx318

Riot House 
(A standalone)

by: Callie Hart

Review Rating:



I read a preview of the Riot House in the Bully Me anthology last month and I’ve been looking forward to returning to this world since then. I can’t remember reading something so poetically lovely wrapped around such a tragic story in a very long time. Callie Hart’s words are top shelf level gorgeous, her descriptions are eloquent, even when you are reading about dark topics I am so taken in and wrapped up in the beautiful writing that I could read her words forever.

Wren Jacobi is a dark, poetically tragic soul. He comes across as an enigma, with just enough damage without being completely broken. He believes his heart is blackened, under lock and key and shut up tight, but he is also artistic (expressing his emotions through other means), he’s also intelligent, and strategic with every life move he makes. A gorgeous specimen of a man who can battle with big words, sharp logic, while digging into your psyche to tear apart your soul. As much as he prepared for Elonie Stillwater’s arrival he never took into account her own will and determination. I loved reading his character shape and reshape as the story progressed.

Elonie was raised under her militant father and bears many scars of her own. While many students would hate to be away from their families at boarding school she isn’t one of them. However, when she arrives, meets Wren and his initial threat to watch her back is layed down she isn’t scared since she has faced worse than pretty boy Wren Jacobi. Even with his continued scrutiny, his friends snide remarks, and just overall unsettling feeling she enjoys being away from her militant father, anything is better than that. She is also somewhat of a mystery. She has many layers that slowly are revealed as the story progresses and she is a powerful woman to be revered.

Wren is fascinated by Elonie. Her gumption to never give in intrigues him, she may not be the lamb he thought she was initially. Elonie finds herself pulled to Wren even when her instincts tell her she shouldn’t. Who is the lamb and who is the wolf? Come to Riot House and find out.


They might be richer than gods, but they’re morally bankrupt.
As far as the boys who run America’s most exclusive international academy are concerned, I’m an unwelcome interloper, an inconvenience, and they’re determined to make my life a living hell.

When Wren Jacobi sets eyes on Wolf Hall Academy’s newest inductee, all he sees is an easy mark. A reserved little girl with a target painted on her back. He knows nothing of my troubled past, though. Nothing of my mother’s suspicious death, or the horrific treatment I’ve had to endure at the hands of my psychotic father.

And he has no idea of the lengths that I, unassuming little Elodie Stillwater, will go to in order to break the savage beast who dreams of breaking me first.

There’s a wolf stalking the forests that surround my new school.
Little does he know…
There are far scarier predators lurking out there in the dark.

It hurts to look at you.
One, two, three, four, five . . . the lyrics to the hell inside your OCD head.
Not alive, not dead. In chains.
You’re broken, Amy. I did this. Can’t undo that.
Six years ago, I played a cruel joke on you in front of the whole school. The girl who made a happiness machine to put her happy inside my head. And I just ripped your heart out.
Now, I’m back to fix what I broke. I’m a psychologist, Amy. I can give you back the happiness I stole . . .

It’s all a lie. I’m not a doctor.
So what. She doesn’t get a choice.
So what if I buy the Victorian estate she lives in, blackmail her into fake therapy sessions.
So what if I get her addicted to my body like a painkiller, make her wish me dead.
I’m not the hero. I’m the monster. The orphan boy gone bad. Cursed, everything broken.
So what, when I discover a dark secret that makes her every inch off-limits, I don’t keep my hands off her.
Her bones are made from emeralds, she’s that precious.
I won’t stop chasing her until she’s mine.

But Amy is a pretty little liar, too. Her lie is the deadliest of them all.
Only one of us is telling the truth.
So bloody what. Nobody’s gonna believe her over me.

It’s her word . . .
. . . against MINE.

You’re in a bad place, Amy. Where the monsters go. But it’s only in the bad places . . . I can get to you.

I look at her. It’s better than I expected. I thought it would be good, but the way Amy falls apart is maybe the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. It starts in her shoulders, where she seems to go weak, and at last, when her hand closes over the kid’s, when she takes the flowers, the weakness goes to her eyes.
Oh, all her tricks are gone now. She’s afraid and real and sad and crying into a pile of flowers that are already dying.
Amy looks at Max, and then at me. She can’t decide what to say or do. That kind of feeling makes me want to destroy things. But Amy doesn’t want to destroy anything. She wants to save Max, protect him from the big bad monster. That is what tears at her. Amy’s wondering where the danger is and I smell fear rolling off her in waves — such intense fear that she will do or say the wrong thing. She can’t guess what I’m up to. She’s wondering if I plan to give her a demonstration of what kind of monster I really could be. Remind her I have a fuck for a heart.
The flowers fall out of Amy’s delicate hands and onto the floor. She says to the kid, ‘Thank you, Max. You mind if you leave me and Shepherd alone? We’ve got some important adult matters to discuss. Boring stuff. Why don’t you go back to your mum? I’m sure she’s missing you.’
‘Okay, Mamy.’ Max trots out of Amy’s room, saying, ‘Smell you laters,’ with a skip in his step.
‘You wouldn’t use a kid? Surely?’ Amy whispers, her words hot as lava.
‘Yeah I would.’
‘Please don’t drag Max into this.’
And for the first time, she looks at me. Looks into my eyes with pure hatred. It’s what I wanted, and now I can’t remember why I wanted it so bad.
‘You downright refuse my help with your OCD, Amy. Don’t you get it? This shit is ruining your life.’
Her pale lips quiver. ‘Why can’t you leave me alone? Why is it so hard for you to just let me be?’
‘I’m not leaving you alone again.’
The response is automatic. Easy. Because god fucking forbid she withers and dies.
Can you save someone who’s already dying?
‘You don’t think I see?’ I say. ‘You’re a zombie, Amy. Still fucking beautiful, but half alive. You’ve given me no choice. If you don’t let me inside that pretty little head of yours, I’ll kick Max and his mum out onto the streets.’
Sometimes the stars don’t align so you have to make them. That’s what I’m doing with Amy. I’m playing God. Fuck Fate. Fuck us destined for a never. I’m making it happen.
Her mouth smacks open. I can see into the dark reaches of her. ‘You can’t.’
‘Yeah I can. Daisy, right? She’s poor. Comes from some derelict housing estate on the east side. I hear it’s bad for her at home. Her uncle or something . . . They can’t afford to pay for treatment — you know that? They’re behind on their payments. I’ve been letting her stay scot-free.’
‘I didn’t know you were doing that for Daisy . . . ’ Her voice is quiet like a mouse.
‘You don’t know a lot about me.’
I can’t help the pride that creeps in my voice. All that destruction, all that chaos I’m making for her. It’s like a lion lying a bird at her feet.
I always get what I want. The lies give me that power. That’s what got me addicted to them.
‘So, what’s it gonna be? Start therapy with me? Or you wanna go downstairs and help Daisy pack her bags?’
I’m a snake in a suit with dead eyes and a poison tongue, and Amy gives me a death stare. Her face is glazed for a split-second, like a China doll. Then she frowns. Her lips purse together. Her eyes are unblinking.
‘My friends are the one real thing in my life and you’re wrecking it,’ she says.
Wrecking things is what I do best.
In this moment, if her eyes were a weapon, the piercing look in them could cause serious annihilation. It’s like she’s a lioness and I just went into her territory, poked her, and she’s ready to attack.
‘This is emotional blackmail. You’re using my friend and little Max to get what you want. I never thought you could sink this low.’
It just about kills me laughing the way she looks at me. Pure fucking contempt on a cracker. If looks could kill, Amy would be more deadly than me. Her hate — that’s good all by itself, makes me run hot.
I lean closer, breathe her in. All vanilla and flower and bubble-gum. I give her a reassuring smile. Such a narrow margin between reassuring and predatory.
‘That’s what you want, isn’t it?’ she says. ‘You want me to hate you, because you think hate is stronger than love,’ she says right in my face.
‘Baby, they’re not opposites.’ I smile wickedly. ‘I think hate and lust are very close.’
It makes her eyes hot with hate. She’s not afraid of what I’ll do or say next. She’s thinking about killing me, maybe.
‘No, they are not opposites, but you’re wrong. Hate isn’t stronger,’ she snarls, spit in the corners of her mouth, and I don’t want her to stop. I want her to hate me a whole lot harder if that’s what this is.
Got your attention, now.
‘You want me to hate you, but hate is weak. Don’t you understand? I feel nothing. I don’t even hate you, anymore.’
‘You will,’ I say. ‘Soon enough, you’ll want me dead.’
But it blows my mind that she doesn’t already.
I straighten the gold seahorse around her neck. ‘Start making an effort to heal — or Daisy and her little kid get booted out. Hell, I’ll raise the prices so high nobody will be able to afford living here. Even those stuck-up rich girls. The roof over their heads rests on your shoulders. Sink or swim — your choice, Amy.’
I’m pulling her apart like candy floss. I’ve ruined her. I’ve burned down her dreams, hopes. Turned her wishes to ashes. And I’ll keep ruining her, keep destroying her. Maybe a deep part of me wants her to stop me.
‘Fine,’ she mutters.
She doesn’t hesitate. Doesn’t even calculate. That’s how bad she wants to save Daisy and Max from the big evil monster.
‘Just like that? No fight?’
‘I can’t cut off my heart. I’m not you.’ She looks down at her bare dainty feet. ‘I just want peace.’
Something you could kill your way to . . . that’s how I see peace, Amy.
Whole lot of silence after that.
Finally she says, ‘You’re vile.’
‘Tell me something I don’t already know.’
Her eyes are jewel green, hazed in mist. ‘I thought you were beautiful when I first saw you at the children’s home.’
She never flatters me, not since I hurt her. And a slow, sickening feeling comes on me.
‘Is that so?’
‘When I was fourteen, I used to love you.’ She says it all in a cold, steady voice, and it stabs like sharp icicles in my heart.
I pin her against the wall behind her, and snarl, ‘Used to love me?’
The air around us is heavy, rage brews in my gut.
‘Yes. Imagine that. Little fourteen-year-old me — in love and thinking about you.’
It’s the closest she’s come to showing me any real feelings. But she uses it in the past fucking tense.
‘What do you think that does to me, Amy, hearing you used to love me?’
‘What do you think it does to my heart?’
The problem is, that as good as it feels, as much as I want to lean back and get off on her submission, I can’t. Because she looks at me from under her eyelashes. Looks at me with my damned soul in her eyes. She never looks at me when I — no, I never let her look at me when I go over the edge of ecstasy. And now she won’t stop looking at me. It knocks me for six.
I clench my teeth, damp down the anger. Pride — that’s my cardinal vice. Not wrath. Pride. The one sin from which all others stem. Yeah, I can be the greedy man and the mean man, the envious and the enraged man, the licentious and the vicious man, but it all spirals down to pride. To the mortal sin of playing God. Of being a complete arse to the only girl I fucking love.
I keep my face neutral and fix my raw eyes at the butchered flowers on the floor.
The ache fades and the pleasure comes back so intense I want to eat her alive. For the first time I have to give chase, like a wolf after prey. I take her to her bed, and her tears are hot and delicious in my mouth.
This ‘thing’ between us, the chemistry, it’s fucking toxic. I know my body is some kind of painkiller, a poisonous addiction, a fix she needs when it hurts too bad. It’s like a knife to my chest but I’ll let her use me. Take whatever I can get. Give whatever she needs. I’ll feed her addiction.
I make her hurt, knowing I’m the one she needs to make the pain go away.
When I’m inside her, she’s crying so hard, her sobbing clutches at me so tightly, it feels like a supernova when I come.
I live my life in the Artic. Like a vampire, there’s no place for sunshine in my world.
Sunshine is a fucking killer to dead souls like me. All the same, I’m like a wasp to the biggest flame.
I don’t care if Amy hates me, forever. All I want is for her eyes to stay alive when I’m there. If she loved me again, would the darkness in my soul be converted? Or would the scar her soul has left in me, fade?

Save the date for this funny and poignant novel of family, friendship, letting go, and moving on by the award-winning author of Room to Breathe.

Once upon a time, Melanie Layton and Tennyson O’Rourke were inseparable—but their friends-4ever promises were shattered when an explosive secret was revealed at Mel’s wedding, a secret that destroyed her family. The two haven’t spoken for the past twenty-some-odd years, and they’d be happy if they never crossed paths again.

But now Mel’s daughter and Teeny’s son have fallen in love—and announced their engagement.

Which means the two women must tolerate one another and play nice long enough to plan their children’s dream wedding. From the beginning, they clash. Melanie imagines a classy, elegant event, in keeping with tradition. Teeny’s vision is a bit more extravagant, and thanks to her habit of marrying well, she’s got the cash to plan the flashiest wedding of the season.

Complicating matters are the men in their lives: Tennyson is falling for the wrong guy, and Melanie is trying to hold on to a flailing marriage. Amid the flurry of cake tastings, dress fittings, seating charts, and bridal showers, Mel and Teeny confront their past mistakes—with twenty years of pent-up drama.

When the day of the wedding finally arrives, their friendship might just be something old and something new.

K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.

They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women they love.
If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.
