Pushing You Away; Noah and Katie #1 – Ex-Con Duet #3 
(#1 of a Duet, #3 within a series)

Publication Date: February 16, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Friends to Lovers/Contemporary Romance

Author: Kennedy Fox

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The buildup, suspense, second chance moments, it was all sublime!!

Noah is such a delicious heartbreaker…sigh…he’s been in love with Katie forever and that love rolls off the pages every time he’s in her presence.

Spending a decade in prison for a mistake he wishes he could take back, all he ever wanted to do was take care of his best friend, Katie, but his mistakes keep coming back to haunt him.

Katie is mad, which is an understatement. When Noah first went to jail she was heartbroken, then the longer he refused to see her or write her back she became angry. Now that he’s released, back in town and suddenly wants to explain, she’s furious. It might take another decade for her to finally forgive Noah, or perhaps some close quarter persuasion.

The tangled web of their history is so much thicker than just estranged feelings. Pushing You Away is a page turner full of emotion with a suspenseful cliffy!

Synopsis:

I’ve been in love with my best friend Katie Walker for as long as I can remember. We may have shared our deepest, darkest secrets but that one I’ve kept to myself. Before I got the courage to confess my true feelings, my cousin Gabe moved to town and swept Katie off her feet.

I should’ve admitted how I felt but I couldn’t—especially once they got married.

When I caught Gabe cheating on his pregnant wife, I snapped. A deadly fight erupted and before I could comprehend what happened, I was charged with his murder and sent to prison.

The day I’m released, I go straight to Katie’s house. But after pushing her away for a decade while I was behind bars—she slams the door in my face—wanting nothing to do with me.

While she’s determined to pretend I don’t exist, this time I’m not going anywhere.

PUSHING YOU AWAY is a slow burn, angsty friends to lovers romance with lots of small-town, Southern drama. It’s book 1 in the Noah & Katie duet and must be read in order.

Book 1 is coming Feb. 16th!

Review – Halftime Husband by Erin McCarthy

56353156

Halftime Husband
(A standalone)

Publication Date: February 15, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Workplace/Single Dad/Romantic Comedy

Author: Erin McCarthy

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Perfect blend of steamy mixed with Erin’s fantastic humor!

Dakota is fun and flirty, pretty much lives in the moment, and not looking for a relationship because she has horrible taste in men, but cue Brandon who actually rescued her from her last disastrous relationship. The knight she didn’t know she needed.

While Brandon is also not looking for anything more than just a fun night between the sheets because he has two daughters at home and one divorce already on the books, he is drawn to Dakota and her playful nature. He can’t deny that no matter when he sees her he can’t keep his eyes or his hands off of her, but his career and his children always come first no matter what.

The first time these two meet they both made the mistake of not exchanging numbers. The second time it was basically….I’ll say a clerical error. The third time their chemistry is still off the charts and they both are in somewhat of a pickle and in a spot where they can help one another, the biggest question can they do it and not end up in the relationship that neither of them want.

Both Dakota and Brandon are so blinded by what they say they don’t want that neither of them are focused on what they can both have. This book is adorable and funny and all kinds of steamy. It’s a perfect read for the month of love!

 

Synopsis:

Running into a man once is an accident. Twice is a coincidence. Three times makes it fate… right?

Unless he is now your grumpy boss who holds the future of your fading dance career in his hands. And you hooked up with him when he was just a mysterious stranger rescuing you…

My life is a hot mess. I’m Dakota Tanner and I speak before I think, I spend before I earn, and I live totally in the moment. Which is why I’m down and out in need of a major life makeover. Cue the hot guy who has it all together and makes my toes curl in bed. Who then disappears before I wake up. When he reappears five months later as head coach of a pro football team he wants a secret romance (aka a no-one-can-ever-know bangfest) while I’m a nanny for his wild-child daughters.

I should say no. But he just might be my one true love… or my biggest mistake yet.

No, I hadn’t heard that Ryan Prince was staying at the very resort I had just started working at.

If I had, maybe I would have called in sick.

On second thought, maybe I wouldn’t have, because I really needed that paycheck. Being a single mother and having a lapse in child support had made me that desperate.

Still, I would have rather avoided the circus that rolled into Hawk Tail Resort and the man who sauntered in with it.

All these years later and he was still that same gorgeous football player I left behind in college.

Except now he wasn’t gracing the gridiron unless it was for a movie role.

I assumed he wouldn’t even recognize me, not with the actress on his arm and the crowd pressing in around him.

Ryan Prince didn’t just recognize me; the angry tilt of those lips on that too perfect face told me he remembered exactly what I did when I left.

I thought maybe this was a gift, a way to put the past to rest…but the look on his face told me he had plans to dig up everything that was unfinished between us.

The summer was about to end, but it felt like my penance for the last decade was about to begin.

Book Blurb:

I always knew I was different.

From a young age, my mind has been plagued with things only I could see. Some hauntingly beautiful, others completely terrifying. Never knowing if these visions were real or just hallucinations, I learned how to lock them down and ignore them. I learned to take solace in the relative anonymity of city life and find peace in the rainy days my city of Seattle is known for.

But just when I think my life is getting on track and my dreams are achievable, a moment of weakness causes me to learn a hard and fast lesson.

My entire existence has been a lie.

Now I’m faced with a new reality that’s as implausible as it is fantastical. Filled with realms and veils, light and dark, fae and daemons, gods and angels—things I don’t understand but am forced to acknowledge. It doesn’t help that the man teaching me about my unique gifts is the gorgeously handsome Carrick Byrne, one of Seattle’s richest and most powerful men. He intimidates, annoys, and intrigues me all at the same time. I don’t trust him and yet there’s no one else to help me.

No longer certain who to put my faith in, what to believe, or how I fit into it all, one revelation is clear…

The world as I know it will never be the same again.

 

The Revelation of Light and Dark is book one of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

When vengeance strikes…

You don’t know me, but I know you.

I’m the shadow that creeps behind you without notice.

The moment you see me, you’re dead.

An assassin. A killer. A nobody.

Until I became somebody.

I’ll make everyone who reduced me to a shadow pay.

To do that, I’m willing to risk everything.

Everything except for my reluctant wife.

Rai Sokolov can show me her worst, but this will only end when death does us part.

The road to the throne is paved with loss, betrayal, and blood baths.

To win, we go all in.

Our lives included.
