Oh, Fudge; Hot Cakes #5 
(A prequel to #6 within a series)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Absolute perfection!! The blend of the bayou with midwestern charm made for a sizzling start to Paige and Mitch’s story.

I’m a huge fan of both of Erin Nicholas’ Boys of the Bayou and Hotcakes series so the fact that she’s brought them together in this cross over novella as a just a taste of what’s to come…it was pure magic.

Paige and Mitch had a one-night-stand six months ago and neither of them are commitment people, but something about that one night back in the summer sparked…well…something in both of them and now Mitch is back in Appleby and it’s now winter. He’s never really seen snow that sticks around, or been where he needed a winter coat. Everything about the quaint town draws him in, the people, the hospitality, and especially Paige. Could what they have be more than a one-night-stand? He’d like to find out, but it would require more than a skittish yoga instructor with a fear of commitment. It might take a trip to the bayou.

I can hardly wait to go back down south with the Landry’s. Just the small bits where Mitch talked to his family made me laugh and brought back all the warm fuzzies. This prequel is excellent and just so darn good!

Synopsis:

A one-night-stand, small town rom com!

Paige Asher likes her men the way she likes her coffee: hot, slightly sweet, and only to-go.

The hot friend-of-a-friend she had a scorching single night with was just about perfect—tall, rugged, with a sexy drawl…and on the road out of town by six a.m. the next morning. Long before her mom could start picking out wedding flowers.

But now she can’t stop thinking about the Louisiana boy. His texts make her smile and she suddenly has a craving for gumbo all the time…hot and spicy and far from home.

Mitch Landry had no idea Iowa would be so hospitable to a visitor. He knew the Midwest had a reputation for friendliness but his welcome gift—a sassy, sweet blond who is as no-strings-attached as he is—was a dream come true six months ago.

But why is he still texting her? And why did he jump at the chance to come back to Iowa? And why is he so annoyed by her phobia to commitment this time? And why is he pretty sure leaving Paige this time is going to be one of the hardest things he’s ever done?

Damn, is this what falling in love feels like?

Oh, fu…fudge.

* a cross-over between the Hot Cakes series and Boys of the Bayou series
* a prequel to Boys of the Bayou book 6

Review – Bad Behavior 1-3 by Jeana E. Mann

Bad Behavior; 1-3 
(#1-3 within a series)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I thoroughly enjoyed this look into the male escort life along with Jamie’s struggle as a single father.

I’ve always believed, your body your choice, but also hate the hypocrisy surrounding the escort world where men don’t have quite the same stigma as women in that field although as you read Jamie’s story you know he isn’t exactly proud of his job when he meets Chloe, for the first time in his life. Their journey together only gets more interesting as each story goes along.

Each short story lasts just long enough to wet your whistle, leaving you thirsty for more. However, it’s just short enough to finish on your lunch hour, which is perfect.

Synopsis:

*These short stories are intended to be read in ONE HOUR or less
*Each book has cliffhanger endings
*Jamie is a paid escort and some of his clients are married BUT he NEVER CHEATS on the heroine.

Bad Behavior #1

The first time I took money from a woman, I did it out of desperation. The second time was to pay for my baby daughter’s medical bills. But the third time–the third time was out of greed. You see, I sleep with the richest women in Chicago, and they pay me well. They hire me for dozens of reasons; rich, bored, revenge on their cheating husbands, loneliness. All of them call me because I’ve got the ability to make them feel like they matter.

My name is Jamie Alexander but my clients call me Romeo. For the right price, I’ll do anything you want, and I’ll enjoy every minute of it. Nothing is too dirty or scandalous for my taste. Nothing is off-limits. Give me a call. I’m waiting. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed.

USA Today bestselling author Jeana E. Mann delivers a world of love, greed, secrets, and pleasure told through the eyes of a paid escort and the powerful women he serves.

Bad Behavior is a serial and sometimes includes a cliffhanger ending.

Bad Behavior #2

My name is Jamie Alexander but my clients call me Romeo. I make my living by fulfilling the fantasies of Chicago’s richest and most powerful women. For the right price, I’ll do anything you want, and I’ll enjoy every minute of it. Nothing is too dirty or scandalous for my taste. Nothing is off-limits. Give me a call. I’m waiting. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed.

Life is looking up. I got a sweet new ride as a gift from one of my clients and a referral to a rich client. She’s offering more money than I make in a year to spend one weekend with me. As much as I hate leaving my baby daughter, I need the money. Thank goodness, the cute girl on the fourth floor doesn’t mind babysitting while I work. If she ever finds out what I do for a living, she’ll never talk to me again. A good man would confess his sins, but no one has ever accused me of being a saint.

USA Today bestselling author Jeana E. Mann delivers a world of love, greed, secrets, and pleasure told through the eyes of a paid escort and the powerful women he serves.

Bad Behavior is a serial and sometimes includes a cliffhanger ending.

Bad Behavior #3

My name is Jamie Alexander but my clients call me Romeo. I make my living by fulfilling the fantasies of Chicago’s richest and most powerful women. For the right price, I’ll do anything you want, and I’ll enjoy every minute of it. Nothing is too dirty or scandalous for my taste. Nothing is off-limits. Give me a call. I’m waiting. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed.

A new girl moved into my apartment building last week. Chloe. A sweet, sunny girl with laughing eyes and a bright smile. I can’t get her out of my mind. While I’m servicing the municipal judge who kept me out of jail, I picture Chloe’s face, her body, her scent. As much as I like her, a relationship with someone my own age is out of the question. I have goals and none of them include a girlfriend. So why can’t I leave her alone?

USA Today bestselling author Jeana E. Mann delivers a world of love, greed, secrets, and pleasure told through the eyes of a paid escort and the powerful women he serves.

Although these stories can stand alone, this is part of a series of novellas and is meant to be read in order.

Review – Waiting for Snow by Mari Carr

55537933. sy475

Waiting for Snow; Sparks in Texas #7 
(A holiday novella within a series)

by: Mari Carr

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The perfect steamy holiday novella to slip in during the upcoming holiday festivities.

While Adele is hoping for the perfect man to fill her stocking she was beginning to think the chances of that happening were as high as waiting for snow to fall in Texas. What she doesn’t know is Porter has his sights set on her and Adele is the perfect gift to unwrap under his Christmas tree.

This was my first time venturing into the Sparks in Texas world and I felt right at home even with this being a novella. Mari Carr’s writing is always top notch and I’m looking forward to squeezing more of this series into my upcoming schedule.

Synopsis:

She might be too big to sit on Santa’s lap, but Adele still has a couple of Christmas wishes. First, a night in Porter’s bed. The alpha cowboy is the king of one-night stands, so it shouldn’t be too much to ask. Follow it up with a White Christmas in Texas? She’ll have gotten everything she wants.

Porter doesn’t believe in asking for what he wants, but he’s got a couple of problems. He believes in riding it down and roping it up. If he gets Adele in his bed, he’s not planning to let her go. But there’s his reputation to overcome, and her stubbornness to boot. It might just take a holiday miracle to convince her to stay all year.

Blog Tour 2020, Contemporary Romance, New Releases, Year of Reviews - 2020

Blog Tour – Kissing Lessons by Stefanie London

Today we have the blog tour of Stefanie London’s KISSING LESSONS! Check out this gorgeous new romance and be sure to get your copy today!

Title: Kissing Lessons

Author: Stefanie London

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Kissing Lessons:

Welcome to Kissing Creek, where everything has a romance-themed pun for a name and love is lurking around every corner…

 

Audrey Miller doesn’t believe in happily-ever-after, so she is definitely living in the wrong town. But she’s never getting out of Kissing Creek, because playing pseudo-mom for her younger siblings doesn’t leave time for much else. She’ll do anything to make sure they don’t end up stuck like she is, working as a barista in a college town, serving Pink Passion mochas with Chocolate Smooch donuts.

 

Then Ronan Walsh, a new young professor and walking cliché, right down to the elbow patches on his blazer, steps in for a coffee and into her life. She knows his type—intelligent and charming, yet sweet as a cinnamon roll, the sort of man she’s inevitably attracted to but is always out of her league. So why does someone like him have any interest in a worker bee with no future?

 

Her bland-as-oatmeal existence has nothing to offer, but Ronan’s temporary teaching position is only a stepping stone on his way to somewhere else. He isn’t here to put down roots, Audrey’s roots are firmly planted—neither of them is looking for love. And maybe that’s just perfect.

 

But in a small town called Kissing Creek, sometimes love can be impossible to avoid…

New Release – One Last Time by Roxie Noir

Seth Loveless has been my weakness since I was sixteen years old.

One Last Time, an all-new second chance romantic comedy from Roxie Noir, is available now!

Two years ago, I moved back to my hometown. I started a business, bought a house, took up yoga, and went on hiatus from dating. Life is good.

If I never had to see Seth, it would be perfect. 

After all, my history with my ex-boyfriend is anything but simple. It’s taken us years, but we’ve finally learned to live in the same town without killing each other.

Is there an elaborate set of rules governing our every casual interaction?

Yes.

Do I still think dirty, off-limits thoughts every single time I see him buying apples at the grocery store?

Of course. I’m only human, and Seth and I are practically experts at the two F’s: fighting, and…

 …sleeping together.

Still, we’re managing just fine. 

And then?

He shows up at my sister’s wedding. The man looks like pure sex in a suit, handsome as the devil himself and twice as charming.

Worse, he claims he’s my date.

We flirt.

We dance.

We break every one of our carefully-crafted rules, and we… should stop.

Too bad I’m having the time of my life.

I know I should end it. After all the heartbreak, hurt, and anger we can’t be more than enemies. 

But Seth asks me for one more night. 

Just one night.

Then, we’re back to being virtual strangers to each other.

I know I should turn him down. 

I know this ends with my heart shattered into a million pieces. 

I know lunacy is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

 

But I’ve always been bad at resisting a weakness.

 

One Last Time is a standalone romantic comedy and the final book in the Loveless Brothers series.

About Roxie I love writing sexy, alpha men and the headstrong women they fall for.

My weaknesses include: beards, whiskey, nice abs with treasure trails, sarcasm, cats, prowess in the kitchen, prowess in the bedroom, forearm tattoos, and gummi bears.

I live in California with my very own sexy, bearded, whiskey-loving husband and two hell-raising cats.
