One Night Only; After Dark 
(A standalone within a series)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A carnal delight that will melt your panties right off! Brought to you by the talented Lauren Blakely, Only One Night brings you to Sin City where Ivy and Callum are both wicked and delicious. As a warning, you will need to turn your air conditioning up when they incorporate Callum’s friend, Stone, into the mix because you ignite.

Ivy and Callum have been dancing around the chemistry between them since he began working for her. He refuses to give in since he’s her bodyguard, not wanting to put her life in danger by letting his guard down and frankly she’s too busy to push the attraction since she’s just exhausted getting the renovations done in her hotel.

When Callum’s best friend comes for a visit, he pushes their buttons, easily seeing their attraction, and things get very heated. Desires are matched and met and it might be difficult to go back to being just boss and employee after their agreed upon night together.

Part of the After Dark collection, Blakely definitely brings the sin to Sin City.

Synopsis:

A delicious new After Dark novella featuring a strong, protective bodyguard and the beautiful, brilliant hotel heiress he protects…

I shouldn’t want my bodyguard the way I do. His job is to protect me. It’s not to fulfill all my filthy wishes.

And so I resist him, fighting the enticing pull of the strong, powerful man who watches over me.

Until the night we combust in my penthouse suite.

It won’t happen again, we say the next day.

Besides, my mission is singular — pull off the event of a lifetime — a one-night only concert with one of the world’s biggest rock stars.

A man my bodyguard happens to know.

And a good bodyguard knows all sorts of things about his client. Turns out he knows my secret desires, and he wants to make them come true. Including a VIP engagement so I can experience both men at the same time…

I want to say yes, but what if I fall even more in love with the man whose mission is to keep me safe?

ONE NIGHT ONLY is a red-hot, sexy love story with a toe-curling, sheet-grabbing MFM sequence.

Review – At First Sight by Katy Regnery

53252318. sy475

At First Sight; A Modern Fairytale #7 
(A novella interconnected within a series)

by: Katy Regnery

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

At First Sight is a modern twist on a classic fairytale, Aladdin. Katy Regnery gives us a second chance romance of an Italian Princess, Valentina, and an Irish street rat, Ian and a love that transcends time.

This unlikely pair meets in Ireland as young teens, and like in the classic tale, they spend a night together viewing the sights through Ian’s world something the young princess would never have done from her lofty station. Circumstances and time rip them apart and it’s fifteen years until they find one another again. If the fairytale holds true, these star crossed lovers are destined to be together no matter that Ian was once a street rat.

All the classic components are woven into this modern twist while still giving At First Sight it’s own unique feel. It’s a lovely novella that fits beautifully with Katy’s fairytale collection.

Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery returns to her wildly-popular modern fairytale collection with a fresh spin on Aladdin!

I fell in love with her the first moment I saw her.
That’s the truth.

Does it sound corny?
Maybe.
Superficial?
Probably.
Impossible?
Yeah. Yeah. Okay. I know.
The thing is?
I don’t really care what you lot think.
I know what I know.
Love at first sight is possible.
I’m positive because I’ve lived it.

I am Ian Ladd,
(a street rat from the back alleys of Limerick.)

She is Valentina Yasmina De’Medici,
(Her Serene Highness.)

This is our story.

Review – When the Walls Come Down by Aly Martinez and M. Mabie

53194583. sy475

When the Walls Come Down 
(A standalone)

by: M. Mabie and Aly Martinez

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

If you are looking for a feel good, completely adorable, quirky romantic read this is the book!! This is the book I needed in my life right at this moment! When the Walls Come Down will fill you with all the warm fuzzies and make you believe in destiny. This is your Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks “You’ve Got Mail” (steamier version) kind of romance.

Shane Warren is the absolute best – quirky, awkward, vulnerable and uniquely weird which is absolutely everything I LOVE about a really good memorable hero. He is currently working for his sister, a job he loves, but he’s gotten comfortable. Something he’s done in every aspect of his life after his divorce. He hasn’t dated or really ventured out of the few blocks around his apartment, until his new neighbor moves in next door.

Maggie Light has moved across the country to jump start her life. She didn’t want to end up stuck like her mother and never achieve anything beyond marriage and motherhood. Beginning a new job away from her family is what she needs and meeting her new, sexy neighbor is the cherry on top.

They hit it off just like peas and carrots and Maggie and Shane have a lot in common, so much in fact that they are fighting for the same job. Unfortunately, they both can’t keep it. While they might both be fighting to jump start their new beginnings, they are at different points in their lives so those reasons for a new beginning are very different. It all comes down to, what is more important…a new job or a new relationship?

Aly Martinez and M. Mabie need to team up more and give us this kind of feel good read because this is the warm blankets, fuzzy socks, and cute kittens all rolled into one kind of book.

Synopsis:

Did you ever hear the joke about the guy whose wife cheated on him with his best friend? So he quit his job, moved into his parents’ basement, and gained fifty pounds?

No? Because that wasn’t a joke. It was my life.

Four years later, I’m back with a dream job, a killer apartment, and a set of abs that are better than ever.

So, when Maggie Light, a stunning, snarky blonde moves in next door, and we spend the hottest weekend of our lives together, I think this could be the greatest comeback story ever.

That is until I realize Maggie has moved to town to do one thing—steal my job.

Maybe this isn’t a comeback story after all. Maybe this is war—one I intend to win.

What I never anticipated was that maybe I’d rather win her.

Perhaps, if I’m lucky, the universe has finally run out of jokes and I can somehow win both.

EXCERPT

Prologue

I shift the old beater in drive and peel out as quick as I can, leaving a trail of smoke in my path. The smell of burning rubber fills the car and it isn’t until I round the corner that the smoke diminishes. Behind me, just like my life—my past. With only the duffel bag riding co-pilot, and the stash of money I was able to get from the safe.

It won’t be long until he’s on the phone with all of his goons to start the search for his missing property—me. At least that’s the way I have lived my life for the past few years, as a prisoner. His prized possession that he kept up on the shelf, out of reach and displayed with the utmost prestige.

If I so much as wore the wrong color, he’d lose his fucking mind. I never went down without a fight, and when I did, I fought hard. I’m pretty sure that’s what he liked the most, feeling the wrath of my bitterness. He felt it alright, with the head of a golf club, straight to the balls. I hit him so hard that he’s probably choking on them right now.

None of it matters anymore.

I drive for what feels like hours, though it was only two. Those two hours have put enough space between myself and the life I lived that I feel confident enough that it’s safe to pull into the next rest stop. My stomach growls as I take a sip of my cold coffee.

I pull into the first space available and my eyes search the parking lot, just to be sure he didn’t follow me.

The coast is clear.

I reach over and unzip the black bag and pull out my wallet, pulling out my new i.d. Claire Hyland—my new identity. Just the last name, anyways.  I’ve been working on the name change for a while, with the plan to take off as soon as everything finalized. It’s the only way I can leave and not be found. I still can’t believe Jorge pulled this off in time. The car, the room to rent, and the interview. Apparently he has some connections with a well-known family from Redwood. It just so happens that they were in need of an art teacher.

I’m forever in his debt. He’s my best friend and the only person who knows that I left, let alone, where I’m going.

I pull out the papers he printed for me on the job.

Redwood High School
Long-term Art Substitute 

I’ve never taught before. I don’t even like kids, let alone hormonal know-it-alls—but, there isn’t much out there with an arts degree.  A temporary teaching position is the perfect way to live low-key, for now, anyway.

New Release – TITAN by Shantel Tessier

Titan - RB banner

I know I have a black soul. Bloodshed and danger are what I live for.

Titan, an all-new, must-read dark romance from bestselling author Shantel Tessier is available now!

TITAN-Amazon

TITAN

I know I have a black soul. Bloodshed and danger are what I live for.

A King is supposed to rule his Kingdom using any means necessary to demand respect.

I’m not a weak man… A King kneels to no one.

I’ve only ever cared about one other person in my life, but the thing is, she never belonged to me. And before I could tell her how I felt, she left.

Now she’s returned, needing someone to save her.

Emilee York was always meant to be mine, and I’ll see to it that happens. I always get what I want, even if that means I have to take it.

And she’s no different. She’ll be my queen, one way or the other.

EMILEE

When I left Sin City behind me, I had no plans to return. I avoided everyone, even my friends, to stay in my bubble. I’ve always been the kind to pull away and run when things get difficult.

But one phone call changed everything, and I was racing back. If only I had known what was waiting for me.

Titan reappeared like a ghost haunting me.

One look and I knew he recognized me. I never forgot him or what we shared. Those feelings that no one else knew existed between us.

I ignored them back then, but now they are more intense than ever.

“Get on your knees…” He demanded I kneel for him.

I tried to act like he didn’t affect me, but he knew. He remembered the way I reacted when he would touch me. And just like he was taught to do—he used my weaknesses against me.

He staked his claim, and I became his queen to use how he saw fit.

What makes it worse is that I crave him, and when I kneeled, it was willingly.

But was it for nothing?
