Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Pippa is the goddess of funny, there is no denying that fact, but The Hot Mess and the Heartthrob is more than her typical romcom, it is more than a romantic story between a hot mess mom and a hottie pop god, it is a book jammed full of emotion that kept leaking out of my eyes.

Levi Wilson is feeling melancholy. His life would seem practically perfect; he’s living his dream of pop stardom, models dripping from his arms, traveling the world, he’s basically done it all, but why can’t he shake the feeling that something is missing?

Surrounded by his brother, his friends, and even his own mother who is not only dating or found the loves of their lives might have something to do with this feeling, but it also might have something to do with missing these very people in his daily life every time he visits home. Missing his home town is an ache that is happening more and more, but when he meets Ingrid, a woman who runs a bookshop in Copper Valley that ache grows into something he didn’t even know he was missing.

Ingrid is a single mom with three, count them, three children and doesn’t have time for the complication that comes with a pop star’s life. Her marriage didn’t work because her ex was gone all the time, but Levi comes with a whole new set of complications aside from his traveling calendar. What she didn’t expect from Levi was the kind, considerate, nice, funny, and every other adjective to describe the man whose music got her through every rough patch in her life, which makes it that much harder not to fall for him, not the singer, but the man himself.

Can a hot mess single mother and a heartthrob pop star really make it work in the long run or can they just have a fun fling and still be friends?

Filled with Pippa’s comedy there were also many joyful tear filled moments. Those happy tears literally took my breath away and made the entire story so worth while. Levi is everything you were not expecting, while Ingrid’s family is an adorable mess.

Synopsis:

A rock star / single mom / fairy tale romcom

You don’t know me, but you do know me. I’m your neighborhood hot mess single mom, doing my best to keep my head above water while running my little slice of heaven and keeping my youngest from shoving marbles up his nose, which is exactly what he’s doing the first time Levi Wilson, pop star god, world’s sexiest man, and my all-time number one celebrity obsession, walks into my bookstore.

Related: I’m writing this from beyond the grave, because I’ve died of mortification and am now residing in an alternate universe.

I have to be.

Because Levi Wilson came back.

And we had a moment.

Like, a moment moment. The kind that makes me remember that adult pleasure isn’t all about hoping the lock holds in the bathroom so your kids don’t interrupt on the rare occasion you feel like taking an extra-long mommy-time shower.

So when he proposes a no-strings fling?

Count. Me. In.

Thrill of a lifetime, right?

Surely, nothing will go wrong…

The Hot Mess and the Heartthrob is a rockin’ fun, sexy romantic comedy featuring a celebrity panty-melter who doesn’t know what he’s been missing, a sassy single mom hanging on by a string, three adorable children who would never burst in on a woman when she’s on a toilet (ha!), and shameless ovary-busting moments between a guy who never thought he’d be a dad and a family who thought they got along just fine without him. It stands alone and comes complete with a happily-ever-after (though you’d never go wrong to read the other Bro Code series books first).

The Hot Mess and the Heartthrob is COMING JANUARY 7th!

Review – Tempted by Ava Harrison

Tempted 
(A standalone)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I wanted to enjoy this book more than I did, but the temptation to stop altogether was there. However, I have an addiction to reading and always finishing what I started, so I was hoping the story hooked me the further the book progressed. Unfortunately, that moment never did arrive.

Temptation comes in many forms and while Bailey is a recovering drug addict her need to not get evicted from her apartment outweighs the temptation of working in a nightclub where she’s surrounded by temptation every night, but the biggest temptation of all is the owner of the club.

Drew knows all about Bailey’s past, but he gives her a second chance at life having been there himself. He has a strict no drug policy in his club, but as hard has he tries to keep it out, he also knows nothing is 100 percent. However, right now his biggest concern is to keep an eye on his newest employee, which isn’t a hardship, what will be is keeping his hands to himself, as she becomes his biggest temptation.

I had trouble finding the connection between Drew and Bailey, even after setting the story down thinking it was just holiday stress, but after picking it back up I still couldn’t connect with their chemistry. I secretly kept hoping Bailey would form something more with her friend Carter, even though he has his own deep issues with addiction and had friendzoned Bailey as well.

What I did enjoy about the story is that it didn’t gloss over addiction. Addiction is hard and doesn’t go away overnight. It takes hard work and constant upkeep. Showing that Bailey, even after two years, is working on her recovery is a good thing because addiction isn’t something that magically goes away after the drugs leave your system. It is a lifelong process of help, readjusting and having the support you need in your life.

Synopsis:

Unemployed. Check.
Zero prospects. Check.
An eviction notice in hand. Check.
Life in shambles? Check. Check. Check.
Desperate to avoid living on my sister’s couch, I took a job in the one place I shouldn’t.
That’s where I first saw him.
Drew Lawson.
Elusive bad boy.
Owner of the hottest club in the city.
And apparently my new boss.
Temptation comes in many forms.
For me, it’s the way he looks at me.
The way he feels.
He’s my addiction.
My secret.
I know I should keep my distance.
I could lose everything–even myself.
But I can’t.
And neither can he.

About ELLE GRECO

I write fiction about badass women (and the people they love).

Urban Fantasy lovers will know me as Karen Greco, author of the best-selling Hell’s Belle series. My Contemporary Romance books are written under Elle Greco.

While the genres are worlds apart, strong female characters are the chain that links all my worlds.

These women are magical. They wield wicked weapons. They play a mean drum solo. They fall in love. They rule the boardroom and the bedroom.

Whatever they do, they do it with swagger.

My storytelling career began when I forced everyone play “make believe” with me when I was a kid. That eventually morphed into banging out short stories on my mom’s old manual typewriter. As I got older, I graduated to penning bad poetry, then not terrible plays as a teenager. I studied playwright in college but my career took a detour and I ended up working in journalism and then entertainment publicity, which kept me busy for 20 or so years.

My “day job” has taken me from gritty rock clubs in The Bowery to glam red carpets during movie premieres and awards shows. My background working with talent (and the suits) in the industry has served me well with the LA Rock Star Romance series.

A few years ago, I decided to pursue my original passion and a few full-length novels later, here we are.

I love anything spooky and impossible to explain. If you love hanging out in cemeteries, the older the better, I’d totally go on a road trip with you.

I have two rescue dogs, a patient husband, and an awesome kid.

Review – Riot Rules by Callie Hart

56017711. sx318

Riot Rules; Crooked Sinners #2 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Callie Hart

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Riot Rules is a girthy book, but every page is vital to the story and every page is SO worth it!!

Winding through two years worth of story at Wolf Hall we get to witness the ups and downs of several characters through this timeline while still keeping the heart of the story between Dash and Carrie. Trust me when I say you are going to fall deeply in love with Lord Dashiell, and weep for everything that is Carina.

With the length of this book it’s hard to summarize everything that is completely and totally amazing about this book, but one of the best parts I love is how it weaves in and out between the timeline of Riot House. Riot Rules begins well before Elodie ever walks the halls of Wolf Hall and yet this book also ends after Wren and Elodie have their love story. Callie was brilliant in her writing to fit Riot Rules uniquely around that timeline and still gave us a fresh new love story that fit Dash and Carrie on both sides of Riot House along the way.

Dash and Carrie both made my heart soar and plummet to the ground multiple times as I was reading. Doomed lovers, they would appear, from the very beginning. Lord Dashiell is a titled Englishman afterall, only attending school in America after embarrassing his father – in other words, he’s been banished. He is still supposed to return to England and assume his rightful place as a Duke, given he meets his father’s expectations, which wouldn’t mean dating a common place girl. He knows better than to get close to Carrie, for more reasons than just his duty, but try telling that to him whenever she comes close. His brain short circuits, along with other body parts. So is there any harm in just taking a small taste, just this once. Get his infatuation out of his system? He will leave America at some point and his time at Wolf Hall will all be a distant memory, he might as well make the most of it.

Carrie is so far beneath common, she is living a lie. A lie she has become so ingrained telling that she has almost forgotten her real name, not that she’d ever want to return to the filth and squalor she came from, but she needs those lies to save herself from something more dangerous and telling the truth isn’t an option for her. No matter what her body may want, a sinful foreign boy whom she can’t seem to stay away from, her mind knows better. He can never know the truth about her and that is the harsh reality she knows she must face, but until then, she’ll listen to her body. Make the most of the time she has left, what’s the harm in enjoying life?

Trying to contain a lie, a secret, something that should flourish, is never a good idea, especially at Wolf Hall. It always gets out and when it does, it explodes. Dash and Carrie’s romance is a fever that will ignite in your heart and explode through your system. These two will have your heart beating faster and your mind screaming over how to make their love work. Afterall, we know of another titled Englishman and commoner who wed not so long ago.

While there are timelines that coincide and made me giddy, this book also reads as a complete standalone. Although if you haven’t read Riot House yet, I would recommend reading it first just because Riot Rules will give away some of the Ah Ha moments and might spoil those for you, other than that, get ready for an amazing read in Riot Rules. You will not be able to put this book down.

Image may contain: one or more people and text

“I break the things I like, love. Trust me. You don’t want me to like you.” 

Synopsis:

CARRIE

You think you know me, but you’re wrong.

You look at me and see Carrie, the girl with the wild hair and the wild clothes.
Reliable Carrie. Friendly. Quirky. Perhaps a little strange.
What do you really know about me, though?
The details of my past are up for debate.
I’ve been careful to hide my sins, and even more careful to follow the rules.
I do as I’m told. I keep to myself. I don’t mess around with boys, and I’m always ready to run.
At least that’s what I tell myself, anyway.
Since I met him, I’ve broken every single rule in the book.
He’s impossible. Arrogant. Terrifying.
If I’m not careful, Wolf Hall’s golden boy will do more than make me break the rules. He’ll wind up breaking me.

DASH

First, they hate me, then they hate themselves for wanting me. That’s how it always goes.

I’m the smart one. The charming one. The guy with the accent that makes girls go weak at the knees. As a resident of Riot House, I’m destined to rule Wolf Hall. Doesn’t matter where you come from. How much money you have. What your future holds. Cross the path of a Riot House Boy and you’re guaranteed to pay the price.
The girl isn’t special. She’s just another cog, turning in the wheel. So why, then, am I protecting her? And why am I keeping her a secret?

Call me a monster.
Call me a fiend.
Call me reprehensible.

Call me Lord Dashiell Lovett IV.

*Riot Rules is book two in the Crooked Sinners Series. It is a complete 135,000 word story that can be read as a standalone, or in conjunction with the other books in the series.

Review – Kian’s Focus by Misty Walker

55850992. sy475

Kian’s Focus; Brigs Ferry Bay #2 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Misty Walker

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A heartfelt story that not only focuses on how love can heal a lonely broken heart, but how family is more than just blood, but the people by your side in your hour of need.

Archer and Kian would seem like an unlikely couple on paper, but boy do their differences fit together perfectly to solve a complete puzzle.

Kian is happy-go-lucky, a man with a plan, organized, put together, and a friend to everyone. His only regret, the one loss in his life, is Jax, his high school boyfriend. Aside from that one heartbreaking moment of never feeling worthy, Kian is the the man everyone comes to for advice, so when Archer, the new man in town doesn’t instantly fall under Kian’s spell – well – Kian just works harder to get Archer on Team Kian. Unfortunately, it gets Kian friendzoned, but little does Kian know that it has more to do with Archer’s past than Kian himself. It doesn’t help when it digs up those old feelings Kian thought he’d buried, but come rushing forward when Archer picks at old insecurities.

Archer comes to Brigs Ferry Bay with a lot of baggage and I’m not talking about the kind you pack in a suitcase. He initially arrives to help his sister with her children who has recently separated from her husband, but the additional benefit of coming to town is escaping from a painful past of his own. Grieving the loss of his long time partner, Archer isn’t looking for a relationship, but when he meets Kian he’s instantly attracted to the charismatic man, something he hasn’t felt in the year since he’d lost Mason. Once he can no longer deny his growing attraction, they agree on a friends-with-benefits arrangement, but will it be enough for the man who always has a plan and is happiness personified? Can he give Kian what he really needs when push comes to shove or will Kian always be waiting for more?

Kian’s Focus is a heavily emotional book that deals with sensitive subjects. Both Kian and Archer want to fix problems (which men always want to fix things – give them a hammer and they will find a nail to pound or insert any other male analogy here), so in their own way they truly want to help, but ultimately the problem isn’t theirs to fix nor is it a male issue at the end of the day. (Oh, see what I did there…I truly don’t want to give away too much of the story, but this book is still going to touch you deeply).

Synopsis:

I lost my boyfriend on the night I had planned to propose.
It was a horrific accident that was all my fault.
I gave up and resigned myself into a life of obscurity.

Until I got a call that my sister, Sara, needed me.
It gave me purpose and I ran to her rescue.
Because that’s what I’ve done our whole lives.

That’s how I ended up in Brigs Ferry Bay.
But when I showed up, things were so much worse than I thought.
She was sullen, fragile, and sinking into a depression I didn’t know how I’d get her out of.
Together, we were drowning.

Until I met Kian.
He’s everything I’m not.
Bouncy, bubbly, full of life, and an innate ability to make everything better.
He makes me believe I can be happy again.

Now the unthinkable has happened and Sara is on the verge of losing her life.
Once again, it’s all my fault.
Kian had clouded my vision with promises of hope and forever.
I was so stupid to believe I could be happy again.

I try push him away.
To shove him out of the darkness that follows me.
I don’t want him to suffer the future fate had secured me to.
But Kian’s focus is on me
And he’s used to getting what he wants.

*Brigs Ferry Bay is a steamy MM romance series. While each book can be read as a standalone, to get the full experience, they’re best read in order.
Enemies to lovers, hurt comfort, age-gap romance, and so much more.
Fall in love with the charming small-town gay romances of Brigs Ferry Bay.

Marry a local girl, settle down, have a few kids. You know, the small-town dream.
But I’ve got a secret I’m terrified will get out.

I’m gay.
Not bi. Not curious. Not confused.
Just gay.
So, settling for that dream won’t be happening.

If this secret gets out, the people I serve and protect, especially my father, won’t be accepting.

I’m not brave like my high school sweetheart, Kian.
The day he came out was the day I had to let him go, and with it, love.

I’ve done a great job of pretending I’m perfectly fine being single. Until a villainous and annoyingly charming new B&B owner, Dante Kincaid, rolls into town. The spark between us is electric and undeniable. He wants to give me a taste of what he has to offer, and better yet, he vows to be discreet. I’m too selfish to refuse.

But my secret is still a heavy burden, leaving me handcuffed to expectations and unable to fully grasp what I want—him. History has a way of repeating itself, but this time around, with Dante, it’ll hurt a lot worse.

I have to decide if I’m going to let love slip away again or if I’m going to finally fight for it.

***Brigs Ferry Bay is a steamy MM romance series. While each book can be read as a standalone, in order to get the full experience, they’re best read in order. Enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, hurt comfort, age-gap romance, and so much more. Fall in love with the charming small-town gay romances of Brigs Ferry Bay…***

I lost my boyfriend on the night I had planned to propose.
It was a horrific accident that was all my fault.
I gave up and resigned myself into a life of obscurity.

Until I got a call that my sister, Sara, needed me.
It gave me purpose and I ran to her rescue.
Because that’s what I’ve done our whole lives.

That’s how I ended up in Brigs Ferry Bay.
But when I showed up, things were so much worse than I thought.
She was sullen, fragile, and sinking into a depression I didn’t know how I’d get her out of.
Together, we were drowning.

Until I met Kian.
He’s everything I’m not.
Bouncy, bubbly, full of life, and an innate ability to make everything better.
He makes me believe I can be happy again.

Now the unthinkable has happened and Sara is on the verge of losing her life.
Once again, it’s all my fault.
Kian had clouded my vision with promises of hope and forever.
I was so stupid to believe I could be happy again.

I try push him away.
To shove him out of the darkness that follows me.
I don’t want him to suffer the future fate had secured me to.
But Kian’s focus is on me
And he’s used to getting what he wants.

New Release – Flame Series Complete Box Set by Daniella Brodsky

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Flame Series Complete Box Set
Author: Daniella Brodsky
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 29, 2020
BLURB

From #1 Amazon bestselling author Daniella Brodsky comes a delicious complete series box set of all three full-length novels from the Flame Series, full to the hilt with steamy, emotional, second-chance romance and heroes so hot you’ll need to turn up the air-con.

These sexy, swoony romances introduce you to:
One smoldering Aussie alpha soldier, one smokin’ Hawaiian-Irish ex-boyfriend who’s (unfortunately) hotter than ever, and a Billionaire Aussie with a broken heart who can melt panties in a single glance. Now grab that cold drink and prep yourself for three hot reads.

Book One: Keep Calm and Perfect Your Smolder
When my girlfriend’s best friend turns out to be my ex, the love of my life, I know the fates have aligned: I have to get her back. I have to show her that she was the path I should have chosen all those years ago.
*Warning: This story contains cheating.

Book Two: Aloha Old Flame
I did the right thing convincing Emma to sever her small-town tie to the island that would only drag her back. I knew her move to Paris would break our hearts, but she was off to bigger and better things and damn if I was going to be the one to stand in her way.

Back then, I was sure eventually, I’d meet someone else, the way people always did when they got older. We were just kids, and I was cocky. How could I not be with the way girls were literally lining up for me?

And for years, I’d convinced myself I was the hero in all this, until I couldn’t convince myself any longer.

Insanely Hot, Then Not
It’s incredible, the way I can’t stop thinking about that curvy girl on the train with the sexy pixie hair. She’s the only thing getting me through the emotional minefield my father’s death has sent me walking through.

Imagine my surprise when she turns out to be the single mom standing in the way of me bulldozing my dad’s building–the only thing I’ve been desperately counting on for some closure.

What could go wrong?

*This box set contains three full-length romances with guaranteed HEAs. The Flame Series books have some crossover characters but can be read in any order and have no cliffhangers.

West Golden—Football star. Playboy. Dead to me.

Nothing puts the final bullet in a girl’s rep like a leaked sex tape. Especially one starring her and the cocky quarterback who’s had it out for her since day one. Yep, you guessed it. That girl is me.

At Cypress Prep, West is king, but all I see when I look at him is the wicked prick who gets off on trying to break me.

His plaything.

Go ahead. Give him a round of applause for winning that last round, but know this—hell hath no fury like a girl from the south side with a baseball bat. 

Hurt me once, shame on you. Hurt me twice… over my dead body.

***

NEVER HIS GIRL is the highly anticipated continuation of the KINGS OF CYPRESS PREP series. This is book two in a trilogy and should only be read after completing book one, THE GOLDEN BOYS.

This saga contains strong bully themes. So, if you’re not into romances where hate turns into love (… eventually), and if you don’t like your heroes of the unapologetically alpha variety, this might not be the series for you. There is no rape or dubious consent whatsoever. However, due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd.

This series is sure to give you GOSSIP GIRL and ONE TREE HILL vibes, and the angst will have you burning through the pages to find out what happens next. One-click and get lost in this series today!

Release Date: February 22, 2021
BLURB

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone, second-chance story of forbidden love…

It’s natural to want the one you can’t have. And for as long as I could remember, I’d secretly wanted my brother’s best friend, Jace.

He was six years older and always treated me like the sister he never had.

Fast forward a decade.

We were all in our twenties now. Jace had moved in with my brother, Nathan, and me to help us make ends meet after our parents died.

It was just the three of us—an odd family dynamic.

Living under our roof, Jace was as bossy and protective as ever.

But he certainly didn’t look at me like a sister anymore. That was what made things so complicated.

I was pretty much hot and bothered twenty-four-seven.

And he was torn.

The signs were subtle, at first. Like on movie night, I’d casually rest my leg against his, and he wouldn’t exactly shift away.

Still, I assumed he would never…go there.

Nathan would kill us.

The knowledge of that wasn’t enough to stop the inevitable, though.

Eventually our slow burn exploded.

But more than the physical attraction, we’d developed a strong connection.

We just couldn’t get caught, right?

That sounded simple.

Until it wasn’t.

This is a story of forbidden love, broken trust, and an unexpected second chance.

Review – Change My Game by Kelsey Clayton

55743443. sy475

Change My Game; North Haven University #2 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Kelsey Clayton

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

My heart was in my stomach from the very first page. Change My Game is a gut wrenching emotional story about redemption, addiction, loss, second chances, and finding yourself at the end of it all.

Kelsey really dove into the underbelly of Jace and Paige and plucked out all of their emotions, bringing forth their depth and letting it drip off the pages so it would sink into your soul.

Change My Game is a heavy hitter romance with two characters that carry a lot of emotional baggage into their second chance meeting. Jace is set out to self destruct and destroy not only himself mentally, physically, emotionally, but pretty much anyone who gets in his path. The only person who seems to care is his best friend, Carter, and Jace works pretty hard at abusing that friendship at every turn. Carter reaches out to the one person in their past who might help, but it’s a long shot given how she ghosted from their lives. The one person who was a constant friend growing up and eventually became more, Paige.

Paige is back in North Haven, but she is barely able to keep her own emotional baggage in check. Her father is sick and she’s back helping her mother keep him comfortable in his final days. Paige doesn’t have time to take on Jace’s baggage, but at Carter’s insistence she also can’t seem to walk away. At one point in time Jace was important in her life and then suddenly he wasn’t. She may have been the one to cut ties almost two years ago, but would she be okay knowing he was really hurt now when she could be the one help. Stepping in to his world again is one of the easiest and hardest things to do, but who ever said matters of the heart are easy.

The agony of both Jace and Paige and what they are going through bled off the pages and tore through my heart. Kelsey filled the story not only with love and friendship, but twists and turns that had my gripping my kindle and needing moments to pause, stop and mentally scream. To say Kelsey changed the game with this book seems punny, but instead what she really did was upped her game for the entire series.

Change My Game is a non-stop read through once you begin, but prepare for this game changer.

Image may contain: 1 person, text that says 'CHANGE MY GAME KELSEY CLAYTON COMING JANUARY 7th'

Synopsis:

My name is Jace London,
And I may have screwed up.

I’ve always been the guy who had it all.
Privilege, entitlement, and a life of luxury.
But after one college night gone tragically wrong,
Nothing has ever been the same.

Everyone thinks I should be happy.
With a trust fund like mine, who could be sad?
But no one knows what’s going on with me,
Or the nightmares that keep me awake at night.

I finally found salvation in a parent’s worst nightmare.
The only thing to ease the pain just enough to breathe.
My friends are worried I’m going to ruin myself.
What they don’t realize, is I’m already dead inside.

Now they’re ready to pull out all the stops,
Including a therapist that gets paid an ungodly price.
No amount of money can bring back the guy I was,
But the girl that got away might be enough to try.

Gorgeous, strong, and confident to a fault.
If anyone can save me from myself, it’s her.

Change My Game is a standalone and part of the North Haven University series. It deals with sensitive topics that may be triggering for some readers.

New Release – Bossy Baller by Melissa Belle

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Bossy Baller
A Cocky Hero Club Novel
Author: Melissa Belle
Genre:Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 27, 2020

Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward are excited to bring you the Cocky Hero Club: original works from various authors inspired by Keeland and Ward’s New York Times bestselling Cocky Bastard series.

BLURB

He was supposed to be a temporary getaway from my disastrous wedding day. Not the hottest guy I’ve ever laid eyes on…

I’m probably not the first runaway bride to get discovered hiding in the back of a stranger’s pickup truck. And Maverick should probably dump me on the side of the road and be on his way. Instead, he agrees to give me a ride across the country.

I quickly learn that Maverick isn’t just a sexy football star. He’s also bossy as hell with a surprising sweet side.

We’re supposed to stay in separate hotel rooms, not share nights fraught with sexual chemistry. We’re supposed to drive straight to Chicago, not veer off on romantic side trips.

So when absolutely nothing goes according to plan, I tell myself that whatever happens on this temporary road trip will be just that—temporary.

Nothing lasts forever.

The last thing I need is to get attached to a bossy baller whose priority will always be football.

But just when I think I’ve got everything under control…

Maverick changes the play at the line.

New Release – No Laughing Matter by Talia Hunter

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: No Laughing Matter
Series: Lennox Brothers Romantic Comedy #1
Author: Talia Hunter
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 27, 2020
BLURB

There isn’t much I wouldn’t do.

In fact, my income depends on doing things most women wouldn’t.

But one thing I’ll absolutely, positively never do again is fall for the charms of Mason Lennox.

Mason may be the manliest hunk of manhood I’ve ever salivated over, but he’s the son of my mother’s arch-nemesis. And seeing as he’s already broken my heart once, I’d have to be certifiable to go back for seconds.

Especially as I’m sure he’s hiding something big from me. And not just in his pants.

*No Laughing Matter is a fun romantic comedy with loveable characters, hilarious banter, a little heat, and a swoon-worthy HEA.

EXCERPT

The man was huge, with wide shoulders and bulging biceps.
I recognized him instantly, though he had a scar on his neck that wasn’t there last time I’d seen him.
“Mason Lennox?” I was so shocked, I said his name like a question, as though I expected him to answer.
More shocking was the fact he did answer. “Hello, Carlotta. It’s been a long time.”
“Wow. You actually spoke to me.”
As he came closer, he looked even bigger. Could he be Jason Momoa’s sparring partner? A bare-knuckle boxer? Or a stunt double for the Incredible Hulk?
“What are you doing in San Dante?” he asked.
“What are you doing here?” I wasn’t about to explain my career disaster, and how I’d come home to give myself time to get back on track. Not when looking at him made me feel so unbalanced.
Mason was my first. Well, to be clear, though he claimed a lot of firsts from me, the one thing he didn’t take was my virginity.
But at thirteen years old, he was my first crush.
At fifteen, my first kiss.
He was the first boy to touch my boobs.
And most importantly, the first to break my heart.
But there was nothing boyish about Mason now. He was a man mountain, made up of muscle, hard edges, and a dusting of stubble, wrapped in a thick layer of sex appeal that was only enhanced by his scars, and the whole powerful-and-dangerous look that was definitely working for him.
He wore a faded gray T-shirt that had to have steel reinforcing for the seams to still be holding together, and he wasn’t so much wearing his jeans as allowing them to hug him. Tightly.
Unfortunately, in spite of the way he’d treated me, he hadn’t developed any deformities. Instead, just looking at him made my legs weaken.
Don’t be ridiculous, I told them sternly. He’s not that good looking.
My legs didn’t bother to reply. They knew I was lying.
Mason Lennox had grown into the manliest hunk of manhood I’d ever seen. So the universe must have decided my crap sandwich wasn’t already chewy enough.
“I’m here visiting my family.” Mason leaned against the fence that separated the two back yards and I was momentarily afraid he’d take the entire thing down.
“Me too,” I said. “I’m staying with Mom.”
That’s when Mom hollered from the back step.
“Lennox!” she roared. “Stop licking your penis!”
I didn’t get embarrassed. Ever. A childhood with my mother had inoculated me against shame. Constant exposure to it had acted like the world’s strongest vaccine, which meant I could laugh in the face of humiliation. In fact, I’d made a career out of encouraging young women to be happy in their own skin. My humor was shameless, and though it meant exaggerating my own flaws and exposing the most personal parts of my life, my cheeks no longer remembered how to blush.
So when Mason’s brow furrowed, why did they feel warm?

Review – Dark by Aleatha Romig

55240228

Dark; Dangerous Web #2 
(#2 in the trilogy)

by: Aleatha Romig

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Dark is the second book in the Dangerous Web trilogy and should not be read alone.

We find ourselves in the eye of the storm, in complete darkness, blind from all sides.

Dark is infused throughout this entire story. Dark thoughts consume Reid; revenge, remorse, regret, everything he should have done to help keep his wife safe and everything he will do to avenge her time captive rolls through his mind on a continual loop. Will he be able to protect her and give her the safety she needs move past this trama?

Lorna, while found, is also consumed by darkness. The dark hole that resides in her mind where memories are missing, the dark hole that resides in her chest connected to the abduction, and the overall spiral of darkness that seems to suck her down on a daily basis. Will she ever feel normal again?

While Lorna just wants to remember so she can feel normal and move forward, everyone around her keeps stating she needs to rest and needs time. These are the very last things she wants to do, as the darkness consumes her when she closes her eyes and she fears what will happen if Reid gets his chance to opportunity for revenge.

More twists and turn as the story weaves in and out from past to present. This book is dark; facing abuse, trama, and recovering from abduction. Looking at both sides of the victim and the loved ones who want to care for the victim, but both struggling through the recovery.

Who will Reid seek his revenge on and will it be in time to save Lorna from sinking too far into her own darkness? Jump into this intense suspenseful read and become Aleatha’d.

*I personally don’t do many trigger warnings, but there is a scene that is pretty in depth that could be trigger-some if you were ever a victim of sexual child abuse. So, either skip this part, or know this trilogy contains this subject matter. 

Synopsis:

“Maybe you have to know the darkness before you can appreciate the light.” ~ Madeline L’Engle

Darkness has fallen upon the Sparrow world.
What seemed secure was breached, and what was assumed unattainable is possible.
In this dangerous underground world, we Sparrows took our power by force. As dusk gave way to dark, we Sparrows are once again determined to use any means necessary to recover what is ours, secure our stronghold, and defeat those who appear unconquerable.
The gauntlet has been thrown.
We will not retreat.
Darkness be damned. It is time for triumph.
I am Reid Murray.
For my wife and my brothers-in-arms, nothing, not even darkness, will stop the Sparrows from victory.

From New York Times bestselling author comes a brand-new dark romantic suspense trilogy, Dangerous Web. DARK, book #2, is set in the dangerous world of the Sparrow Webs. You do not need to read Web of Sin, Tangled Web, or Web of Desire to get caught up in this new dangerous and intriguing romantic suspense saga, Dangerous Web.

DARK is book two of the DANGEROUS WEB trilogy that began in DUSK and concludes in DAWN.
Have you been Aleatha’d?

Review – Fury by Tracy Lorraine

Fury; Rosewood High #6 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

What an emotional ride! Ashton is going to roll into your heart and leave it a bloody, aching mess and blow away all your expectations.

After reading Faze, I was desperately aching for more of Ashton. I love a good bad boy and Ashton came riding into Rosewood darker than dark. He was hellbent to destroy Ruby and the small taste Tracy gave us left me salivating for how this bad boy was going to fall.

When Ashton is sent to live with his estranged father the first time he goes out of his way to make Ruby’s life a living nightmare, but when his feelings change for her and become too much he leaves and moves back to Seattle to live with his mother. This is where we pick up the story in Fury months later after Ashton has left.

Ashton has fallen back into old habits while back home in Seattle, which was the main reason his mother wanted him to live with his father. His old habits had him circling the drain of gang activity and those habits unfortunately lead to tragedy that change the course of Ashton’s life forever.

Ashton was angry and dark in Faze, but this time he spirals into a darker grief spiral that will really break your heart. His pain is deep and toxic, but at the same time so relatable you understand why Ruby is drawn to him and wants to ease his suffering. This doesn’t stop him from using her to make her feel like he does. He’s toxic, he knows it, and he wants to ruin her life the same way his has been ruined.

Ruby’s life circles around cheer and hopefully getting the national title this year. She doesn’t need an angry stepbrother stepping into her life messing with her head or her life when she’s so close to achieving her goal. However, whenever Ashton is near she can’t seem to stay away and whenever he seems to be sinking she can’t seem to help, even if it might hurt her in the long run.

The push and pull of these two is unlike any of other of Tracy’s characters. I felt Ashton’s pain so deeply, while at the same time I emphasized with Ruby’s need to immerse herself in his pain to help him through it. What could have seemed like reprehensible behaviour instead came across as relatable and both Ashton and Ruby gave us that sympathy through deeper emotions. These are truly two of Tracy’s best written characters.

I’m also very excited with a few directions that could come out of secondary characters for future stories.

Step back into Rosewood and buckle up for an emotional ride.

𝐏𝐑𝐄𝐎𝐑𝐃𝐄𝐑 𝐘𝐎𝐔𝐑 𝐂𝐎𝐏𝐘 𝐎𝐅 𝐅𝐔𝐑𝐘 – mybook.to/FURY

I highly recommend reading FAZE before reading FURY. It’s a short prequel to Ashton and Ruby’s story and highlights the beginning to their tumultuous relationship.

Faze by Tracy Lorraine

I shouldn’t be fazed by him…

He turned up like a ghost in the night, determined to make me scream.

But he’s no ghost, he’s as real as the feelings I try not to have.

My illusive stepbrother, has everyone fooled. Except me.

One look into his dark eyes and I know.

He’s pure evil. Haunting my house… and my darkest dreams.

Pursuing me to prove a point and determined to make his stay as excruciating as possible.

I already know I’m going to get burned but I can’t help myself, like a moth I’m drawn to his black flame.

One thing’s for sure, after this Halloween, I’m never going to be the same again.

Dear Reader

Faze is a prequel to Rosewood High #6. It’s a dark high school bully romance and not intended for readers under 17.

Synopsis:

My step-sister was an outlet for my pain, but everything has changed. 

Now, I’ve got nothing to lose. 

I’m infuriated by my feelings for her…

They’ve held me captive all this time.

I might have been the one that walked away, but that doesn’t mean I’m not still haunted by her—by what I did to her.

But that’s the thing about ghosts… they always return when you least expect it.

My stepsister was an outlet for my pain, but everything has changed.

Now I’ve got nothing to lose.

If she thought I hated her the first time we met, then she’s about to get a shock.

The rage I felt didn’t compare to the fury that now consumes me.

I might be empty, but I’m going to show her how it feels by taking away everything she has… one painful piece at a time.

FURY is the sixth book in my Rosewood High series. You can read the beginning of this couples story in their prequel FAZE.

BLURB

West Golden—Football star. Playboy. Dead to me.

Nothing puts the final bullet in a girl’s rep like a leaked sex tape. Especially one starring her and the cocky quarterback who’s had it out for her since day one. Yep, you guessed it. That girl is me.

At Cypress Prep, West is king, but all I see when I look at him is the wicked prick who gets off on trying to break me.

His plaything.

Go ahead. Give him a round of applause for winning that last round, but know this—hell hath no fury like a girl from the south side with a baseball bat. 

Hurt me once, shame on you. Hurt me twice… over my dead body.

***

NEVER HIS GIRL is the highly anticipated continuation of the KINGS OF CYPRESS PREP series. This is book two in a trilogy and should only be read after completing book one, THE GOLDEN BOYS.

This saga contains strong bully themes. So, if you’re not into romances where hate turns into love (… eventually), and if you don’t like your heroes of the unapologetically alpha variety, this might not be the series for you. There is no rape or dubious consent whatsoever. However, due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd.

This series is sure to give you GOSSIP GIRL and ONE TREE HILL vibes, and the angst will have you burning through the pages to find out what happens next. One-click and get lost in this series today!

New Release – The Last Goodbye by Abby McCarthy

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: The Last Goodbye
Author: Abby McCarthy
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 22, 2020
BLURB

Lincoln was my addiction. He was the only man I’d ever been with. Loving him had been like a drug, complete with all the nasty side effects. When I had him, it felt like the greatest high. When I didn’t, it was like my world fell apart. Over the years, I’d realized so much of my time had been a craving-praying for the next hit. Was there a support group for this—In Love Anonymous? If so, I suppose I was working through my steps. I admitted I had a problem, and I wasn’t using anymore. Maybe I was delusional that there was a cure for this kind of sickness?

I met the love of my life at fifteen. He left for the Army when I was sixteen. We dated long distance. Made love for the first time on leave. We married on leave too. So much of our life had been spent apart, so when Linc made a decision that took him away from me for years, sending him to prison, I was done. How many times could our life be put on hold? I knew I deserved to live my life with a partner; not love one who couldn’t stick around.

Now, Lincoln is out and I have to finally put an end to this… to us. A family tragedy forces us together again and we confront what tore us apart. I’m faced with the hardest decision of my life. Should I forgive or should I finally let go and let him have this last goodbye?

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Jammed packed full of sports stories that range from football to baseball all the way to lacrosse and roller derby. There is a taste for everyone especially since the stories also range from spicy to sweet. I dare you to find something you don’t like since this anthology has such a diverse offering.

A few of my favorites are:

Always Looking to Score by Coralee June and Carrie Gray – Dale and Shelby made me smile through this entire short story. Dale is normally confident with a capital C, but Shelby makes him work for his swagger as she uses his masculine form for her art project. The whole vision for this project was amazing and made me giggle while swooning!

The Midfielder’s Defensemen by Elle Joraco – Ryan Kelfield joins a new co-ed lacrosse team and is excited for the transition from an all girls team at her new school. Although when she gets to school she discovers the co-edness of the team is all on her part as the only woman. While not everyone is welcoming, most of her teammates are and a few are might even be looking for something more than being just a teammate on the field.

Some stories are complete games while others are just season openers with the longer game to come later, but have no doubt you’ll enjoy this anthology no matter what story you read.

Synopsis:

The last quarter.
The final inning.
Whatever it takes, you have to give it all you’ve got.
When that clock is ticking down, remember how hard you’ve trained, how many hours you put in. Strap on your pads, wrap your hands, tie up those cleats. Whether on the field or in a rink, you’ve got this. This is your day, your time to shine. It doesn’t matter what game you play.
In the end, all you have to do is Make it Count.

Twenty-three authors bring you nineteen stories full of hope and love.

This anthology in memory of Josie McIntyre, who was an avid softball player who was tragically lost too young. All proceeds for this anthology will go toward a scholarship fund in her memory.

Review – The Fourth Time Charm by Maya Hughes

The Fourth Time Charm; Fulton U #4 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

by: Maya Hughes

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A friends to lovers book with so much emotion it will leak out of your eyes.

The Fourth Time Charm interconnects with the other Fulton U stories and even the Kings of Rittenhouse. I love that so hard!! However, this is also a complete standalone probably more than the other Fulton U books were. LJ and Marisa live in a bubble within their own love story where the secondary characters come and go and if you haven’t read the other books you will not be lost, I promise you.

LJ Lewis is deeply in love with his childhood best friend, Marisa. Like, deeply, madly, so far in love with his best friend he will do anything for her.

“I’ve loved her since we were fifteen. It’s never going away.”

Swoon, right!! He keeps those feelings locked up refusing to lose her friendship over telling her how he feels, especially when he’s tried a few times in the past and they’ve all blown up in his face. He’s lost in how to express how he feels, especially since the football coach is her estranged father. The very man who has his future and his balls, if he were to actually date his daughter, in the palm of his hand.

Marisa also feels the same way about LJ, although I’d call what she feels for him, just surface love, as I’m not sure she understands how to deal with more than that. Don’t get me wrong, she is still very much in love with him, she just has layers and layers of issues to work on when it comes to understanding how to show that love, but there are lots of reasons why that is.

Marisa had a crappy childhood, there is no doubt about it. Her father left at an early age, which caused feelings of abandonment, and then her mother basically checked out, furthering those feelings. It’s hard to understand what love is when the most important people in your life basically tossed you aside. It isn’t until her father, who is the head coach at Fulton U, wants to try at a relationship (after a little more than ten years of abandonment) that Marisa even tries for some sort of connection with her father and she takes LJ, her best friend, along to those get togethers, never realizing that it puts his future in threat.

These two have been the rock for each other since elementary school. Furthering their bond when Marisa donated bone marrow to LJ’s dad when he was sick. It’s hard to feel like LJ would really love her for her and not just as a donor in the off chance his dad ever became sick again. There are so many emotional layers to their bond, it’s no wonder they’ve never uncovered it to reach for more, as much as their hearts may want to.

The Fourth Time Charm is probably Maya’s most emotional book in her Fulton U series, while at the same time it contains the sweetest hero and heroine of all of her books. LJ has the to be the most caring man I’ve read in the longest time. Not only does he love his family, but he loves Marisa something fierce. He takes the world upon his shoulders and will do anything for those he cares about. That is abrimonable in anyone, especially someone of his young age.

Marisa is so strong for what she’s been through in her young life. LJ has been her only constant and she doesn’t want to lose him. A romantic entanglement is so risky, no matter what her hormones scream, so it’s completely understandable that she’s scared to risk something further. She doesn’t understand that LJ loves her no matter what. Marisa has never understood what that means.

The Fourth Time Charm made me giddy with happiness, it also made me sad with emotions, it made me fall in love with these two and their long time friendship turned lovers. It was truly everything Maya could have given us.

Sale Blitz – The Winter Games Boxset by Dr. Rebecca Sharp

SALE BLITZ
Title: The Winter Games Boxset
A Complete Winter Sports Series
Author: Dr. Rebecca Sharp
Genre: Small-town Sports Romance
Release Date: April 12, 2020
BLURB

Five alpha snowboarders. Five fierce women. Five heart-wrenching love stories. 
One completely captivating collection.

The Winter Games series follows a close-knit group of friends in a snowy mountain-town setting. Surrounded by the cold and past secrets, future hurdles and hidden enemies, will their fire to find true love melt any obstacle in their way?

From broken souls to broken hearts, these five interconnected standalone novels are emotional and angsty stories of love and loss, with a group of loyal friends that will warm your soul. 

This sexy winter sports romance series is the perfect addictive binge read!

Up in the Air (Book 1)… When her twin brother’s disappearance pushes Channing Ryder to risk everything and enter a competition under his name, the last thing she ever expected was for Wyatt Olsen—her competition—to be so charming. Needing to keep her distance or risk being exposed, Channing tries to focus on the gold and not the man determined to win her heart. Because the danger in falling for Wyatt is that he might shatter her heart when he learns the truth.

On The Edge (Book 2)… Fleeing an unimaginable tragedy, Ally Ryder gave up sun and sand for the cold, snowy mountains of Colorado. She wasn’t looking to start over—she was looking to bury her broken soul. And when Emmett Jameson shows up at her front door, gruff and condescending, Ally realizes her brother’s best friend is the perfect man for her destruction. Emmett knows Ally is off-limits, but he can’t help but be drawn to her. All she wants is to fall apart, but when he’s always there to pick up the pieces, Ally wonders instead if she’s falling for the asshole in shining armor.

Enjoy the Ride (Book 3)… With one fall, Chance Ryder blew not only his knee but his skyrocketing snowboarding career. Back in Aspen, fate deals him another wild card—Jessa Madison. His new physical therapist and the woman who broke his heart. Will their unquenchable attraction give him a straight shot at revenge or will it finally give them a second chance at love?

In Too Deep (Book 4)… Life has thrown Tamsin Lucas one curveball after another, disrupting her perfectly-ordered plans. When she has no choice but to tutor the daughter of a man whose coldness rivals snow, she can’t help but wonder about the secrets under his frozen façade. Meanwhile, captivated by her warmth, Nick Frost knows Tammy is too perfect for him and his past is too dangerous for her, but what if what they have is too strong to deny?

Over the Top (Book 5)… Jac Blanchard is the ice princess of the mountain. Broken and betrayed by fiancé, Jac learned the hard way that it’s the people you love who can hurt you the worst. But when one night puts her in Kyle Masters’ sights, she has a hard time avoiding the aggravatingly attractive prince charming. Kyle knows what they have is more than just a fling, and he won’t give up until Jac believes it, too. But when danger lurks on the mountain, he’ll fight to keep her safe—even if it costs him everything.

The entire Winter Games series (5 books) is included in this boxset along with bonus content. All books are full-length (100K+) standalone novels.

Excerpt

 

I leaned against the doorframe, hands tucked in my front pockets, and observed. It took her three minutes to notice me. Another two to lift her jaw off the floor, straighten her spine, and turn scarlet. Our eyes met across the room, and that nagging murmur in my chest happened again.

Get that checked. If you drop dead from a heart attack at forty, you’ll have no one else to blame. She winced, looking like I physically slapped her. 

“Mr. Fitzpatrick.” 

“Miss Penrose.” 

“Veitch,” she corrected, just to spite me. 

“Not for long,” I noted dryly. “A word?” 

“I know many. My favorite one right now is—leave.”

“You want to hear me out.” I cracked my knuckles. “Now say goodbye to your little friends.” 

She looked back and forth between the kids and me, then turned and murmured something to the teacher next to her, and hurried my way, dunking her head down. “What are you doing here?” 

She closed the door behind her, whisper-shouting. 

I’ve been asking myself the same question since bailing on Keith and his snooze-fest speech. What the hell was I doing here?
