Review – The Knockout Rule by Kelly Siskind

56261460. sy475

The Knockout Rule; Showmen #4 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: February 24, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Sports Contemporary

Author: Kelly Siskind

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

 

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A slow burn romance that takes a look at the boxing world and the importance of family. 

Eric Kramarovsky, also known as Brick Kramarov which is his boxing personality with a Hulk like tagline of “Brick Smash”. Eric has a brutish public persona to keep up appearances which is completely opposite to his actual high IQ and sweet personality. The persona of “Brick” weighs on Eric though most of the book and also drags on Isla who has trouble with the boxing world to begin with. As they get to know each other more he’d love to walk away, but Eric needs boxing to save his family, which means “Brick” stays and it’s a fine line to a budding relationship. The love Eric has for his family is so sweet and it’s really hard not to like the guy.

Isla grew up with a heavyweight famous father and hates the world of boxing. She watched as the career he loved took away his marriage and slowly took away his health all in the name of his profession. Isla appreciates the dedication it takes to be an athlete, but she will never understand boxing and the men who destroy their bodies. So when her father asks her to help with one of his proteges, Eric,  she really can’t say no, even if she desperately wants to since her dad is the one who helped fund her new business. There are a few times that her pushy nature is a bit much, but then you get an inside look as to why she is the way she is and you get sympathetic, understanding her intentions and giving her a little leeway for her attitude.

As much as Isla tries to avoid her attraction to Brick, there is something about the sweet man behind the persona he projects to the world. The more time they spend together the more she likes him, but can she give up her fears of the sport that took so much from her already?

Some of the story dragged, and I can’t place why because I was drawn into the connection Eric and Isla have for one another, and I don’t mind a slow burn romance, but there were times I wanted to push them along faster, if that makes sense.  While this doesn’t make it a bad read or one I didn’t enjoy, it was just something that made it less than a five star book and pushed it to a 4.5.

 

Synopsis:

Siskind’s latest slow-burn romance is stay-up-all-night addictive and proves love hits when you least expect it…

Growing up with an adoring father for a boxing legend isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. It looks more like hospital visits, bloody noses, and cracked ribs.

Isla Slade now works as a physiotherapist, helping athletes heal their bodies. Except for boxers. She has no interest in reliving the stress of her teen years. Dating someone in the boxing world? She’d rather snort wasabi powder.

Until she meets Preston Church.

Preston manages heavyweight boxing darling Brick Kramarov. A brute who’s built tougher than his name, with a cocky attitude to boot. She wants nothing to do with either man, but her father begs her to help them prepare for a huge Vegas fight.

She doesn’t expect Preston to recite romantic poems and slowly break her resolve. His fascinating mind gets under her skin, even if his star athlete reminds her how much she hates boxing.

Too bad it’s Brick coaching Preston how to woo Isla, falling for her from the sidelines. Once she finds out, she’ll have to decide if she can risk loving another man who puts it all on the line for the knockout.

Review – Secret Beast by Amelia Wilde

57052534. sy475

Secret Beast; Secret Beast Trilogy #1 
(#1 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: February 23, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Dark/Antihero/Forbidden Romance

Author: Amelia Wilde

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This dirty, twisted version of Beauty and the Beast was absolute perfection! Every step was masterfully crafted to a dark version of the beloved classic, while also highlighting the Morelli/Constantine dueling dynamic beautifully.

“Villains aren’t supposed to kiss the virtue out of you.”

Amelia Wilde brings another story to the Midnight Dynasty World with Leo Morelli and Haley Constantine front and center. Leo Morelli has been targeting the Constantine’s for years, but aside from that these are two powerful families usually going after the same things, what was Leo’s underlying reason for his cruel methods of achieving his goals? He is known as the Beast of Bishop’s Landing not because he’s cuddly and warm, but for his cruelty and dark demeanor. Secret Beast gives us an inside look into why he ruthlessly goes after what he wants and how he became the Beast.

Haley Constantine may be a Constantine, but her family is not one of the well off Constantine’s. Her father was known more as an embarrassment within the Constantine family tree and as such Haley spent her life sandwiched between avoiding the wrath of not being good enough and living up to the Constantine name she also spent her time avoiding outside forces like the Morelli family who could also hurt their family because her last name was Constantine. Haley never felt safe with anyone and even if she was tired of always protecting her family, at the end of the day she loved them fiercely.

When Haley’s father makes a deal with the Beast of Bishop’s Landing, the only thing she can do to save him is trade herself to save her father. During her captivity where she thought she was walking into the devil’s den it was actually the first time she actually felt safe in her entire life, but could it be at the risk of losing her family and the man she’s come to care for?

Secret Beast ends on a cliffy and I know I’m waiting on bated breath for the next installment. This entire world has pulled me in and I love the back and forth between the Constantine’s and Morelli’s, each family pulling on my emotions as I go back and forth depending on which collection I’m reading.

I couldn’t have imagined a better retelling for a dark Beauty and the Beast within this Midnight Dynasty Collection.

Synopsis:

The beast hides a dark secret in his past…

Leo Morelli is known as the Beast of Bishop’s Landing for his cruelty. He’ll get revenge on the Constantine family and make millions of dollars in the process. Even it means using an old man who dreams up wild inventions.

The beauty will sacrifice everything for her family…

Haley Constantine will do anything to protect her father. Even trade her body for his life. The college student must spend thirty days with the ruthless billionaire. He’ll make her earn her freedom in degrading ways, but in the end he needs her to set him free.

SECRET BEAST is a new full-length novel from USA Today bestselling author Amelia Wilde about revenge, family secrets, and the redeeming power of love.

Review – Inferno by Emma Renshaw

54029138. sy475

Inferno; Burn #3 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: February 23, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Suspense Romance

Author: Emma Renshaw

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Tears, tears and more tears. Emma Renshaw hit me in the emotional feels with this third book in the Burn series.

We return to Hawk Valley where one night changes the lives of an entire town and even though this is the third time I’ve experienced the bonfire, I was crying by the end of it.

Emma Renshaw knows how to turn something old into something new and make it even more emotional each time I relive it.

Adeline and Foster had very different experiences growing up. Foster is known as the golden boy in Hawk Valley, the son of the Mayor, he has expectations thrust upon him to follow in his father’s footsteps. The night of the bonfire changes his outlook in life and the course of his life. As much as he doesn’t regret making his own life choices, he does wish he wasn’t thrust into his father’s spotlight when it served his purposes.

Adeline grew up in poverty, fearful everyday how her father would react as he lost himself to drinking. The night of the bonfire she lost her entire world and years later she’s still lost in a cycle of grief. Years pass and she hasn’t gone anywhere, stuck in the hometown that took her family, but still dreaming of what could be if she had the courage to take chances. Her snowglobe collection is the closest she comes to dreaming, until she receives news that changes her entire life.

These two souls may have come from different worlds, but they are also more alike than they even realize when they first meet up. Opposite sides of the same coin. Looking for acceptance and love regardless of their background or life circumstances. It may have taken twelve years for them to finally speak to one another again, but once they do their connection is electric and they both help one another regain something they thought they could never have.

Adeline and Foster brought me to tears so many times, I was a total mess by the time I finally came to the end. Inferno is by far Emma’s most emotional book in this series. It can be read as a complete standalone.

 

Synopsis:

From Emma Renshaw, author of the Vow series, comes a new small town, enemies-to-lovers romance about a firefighter who walked away from his past and a woman who lost everything. This is the third book in the Burn series.

New Release – The Crush by Penelope Ward

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: The Crush
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
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.

Blog Tour – Fletcher by V. McFarlane

Release Date: February 20
Just one night…
I should have known that just one night would never have been enough.
Not when Peyton Mckenna has been the only girl I’ve ever dreamed of.
We were friends once, best friends but to me she was always the girl I couldn’t have. It didn’t stop me wanting though.
But then everything changed, our worlds exploded and I pushed her away, too caught up in my grief and confusion of still wanting the girl that belonged to someone else.
For three years I avoided her as if everything that happened that night was her fault, but the truth was, the guilt of seeing her, still wanting her was tearing me apart but I was becoming weak.
Weak enough to let her back in.
Weak enough to hold her.
Weak enough to take that taste I’d always denied myself.
It was a betrayal.
But never a mistake.
And now I want more.
Our paths were too tangled, our lives forever on a collision course.
This was my destruction and we had always been destined to fail.

An explosive new novel of love, lies, and obsession from bestselling author J.T. Geissinger

Five years ago, my fiancé disappeared. Left me with a wedding dress I’d never wear. Left me with the kind of scars that can’t be healed. The man I built my future on vanished like a ghost. All that remained were my broken heart and unanswered questions.

Read Kay’s Review: Ruthless Creatures

Excerpt

I recall my first impression of him when I saw him at the bar last night, how I told Sloane he looked like he walked off the set of Sons of Anarchy, and understand on a cellular level that the man sitting across from me is someone for whom the normal rules of society don’t apply. I also understand that he’s dangerous. And that he wants me but doesn’t want to. And that I want him, too, but shouldn’t. Because people who stick a hand too close to a lion’s mouth will come away with a bloody stump where that hand used to be. The waiter arrives. Kage sends him away with a royally dismissive flick of his fingers, never taking his gaze off me. When he’s gone, Kage says, “So your fiancé disappeared. And for the next five years, on every anniversary of what would’ve been your wedding day, you get drunk.” “It sounds worse when you say it out loud. Do I need to be afraid of you?” We stare at each other across the table. The silence is electric. If he’s surprised by my question, it doesn’t show. He says softly, “What if I said yes?” “Then I’d take you at your word and drive straight to the nearest police station. Are you saying yes?” He hesitates. “Most people who know me are.” My heart pounds so hard, I’m surprised he can’t hear it. “I want a yes or a no.” “Would you believe me if I said no?” I reply instantly, without thinking. “Yes. You’re not the kind of man who hides behind lies.” He considers me in blistering, unblinking silence, slowly turning the cigar round and round between his thumb and forefinger. Finally, he says gruffly, “You’re so fucking beautiful.” The breath I’ve been holding comes out in a rush. “That’s not an answer.” “I’m getting there.” “Get there faster.” On his lips appears that faint approximation of a smile. “I’ve already told you I’m not a knight in shining armor—” “There’s miles between that and what I asked.” He growls, “Interrupt me again and I’ll take you over my knee right here and spank that perfect ass of yours until you’re screaming.” Coming from anyone else, a statement like that—spoken in such a hard, dominating tone—would make me furious. Coming from him, it almost makes me moan out loud with desire. I bite my tongue and glare at him, unsure which one of us I dislike more at the moment. He crushes his cigar in the ashtray, drags a hand through his dark hair, and moistens his lips. Then he shakes his head, laughing ruefully. “All right. You want an answer? Here it is.” He stares into my eyes, laughter fading, until he’s all hard jaw and thinned lips and smoldering hotness. “No. You don’t have to be afraid of me. Even if I wanted to hurt you, I wouldn’t.” I lift my brows. “Somehow, that’s not exactly reassuring.” “Take it or leave it. It’s the truth.” The waiter returns, grinning. Without looking away from me, Kage growls at him, “Come over again when you haven’t been called and I’ll put a bullet in your head.” I’ve never seen a man spin around and run away so quickly. Feeling dangerously reckless, I say, “Since you’re in a truth telling mood, why did you pay for your house in cash?” “To launder the money. Don’t repeat that to anyone. Next question.” My mouth opens. For several moments, nothing comes out. When I manage to compose myself, I say, “Why would you trust me with something like that?” “Because I want you to trust me.” “Why?” “Because I want you. And I suspect getting to have you requires a certain level of trust. I can tell you’re not the type who sleeps around. Next question.” God, my heart is beating so, so fast. So fast I can barely breathe. Also, I think I might have whiplash. I say, “Are you always this…” “Direct? Yes.” “I was going to say contradictory. Yesterday it seemed like you hated me. I’m still not sure you don’t.” His voice drops. “Yesterday you weren’t under my protection. Now you are.” His eyes are hypnotic. His voice is hypnotic. This man is putting me under a spell. “I’m pretty sure I have no idea what you’re talking about.” “It doesn’t matter. What matters is that you believe you’re safe with me.” My laugh is faint. “Safe with you? God, no. I think I’m in more danger around you than I have been with any other man before in my life.”

Gian

I knew I’d never have the luxury of choosing my own wife. An arranged marriage was a sacrifice men in my position had to make for their families. It wasn’t something I looked forward to, but it had to be done.

I just never imagined my father would choose her to be my bride. Daniela Moretti, the daughter of my enemy…and I intended to treat her as such.

But since the day she set foot in my house as my wife, my loathing of her turned into something deadlier than hate. Her strength intrigued me. Her fight seduced me. And I started seeing more in her than just dirty, filthy Moretti blood.

Now…she’s gone. Kidnapped. Vanished without a trace.

But the devil always finds what’s his, and when I do, my thirst for vengeance will be sated by blood.


Please note that The Devil’s Vengeance is book 2 in the Vows and Vengeance duet, and should be read after The Devil’s Vow.

New Release – Twist of Fate by Tia Louise

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Twist of Fate
Author: Tia Louise
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2021
BLURB

A sexy, friends-to-lovers, second-chance romance with a twist by USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise.

To be “just friends” with a guy, you’ve got to follow The Rules:
Don’t touch him unnecessarily.
Don’t share your intimate dreams with him (even if he asks).
Don’t kiss him, and definitely don’t sleep with him.

Scout Dunne and I have been “just friends” since childhood.
He’s everything you could want—sexy, charming, confident—every girl’s wet dream.
Until we broke The Rules.

We broke them in the ocean, in my aunt’s bathroom, in my bed…
It was the hottest week of my life.
I’m one of the few people who knows the first-draft NFL star wants more than a life of sports.
Because we’re friends, right?
Not anymore.

Now he’s gone, and I’m trying to get my career back on track.
Mamma said a guy would never put your dreams ahead of his.
But the twist of fate?
It’s something you never see coming.

(TWIST OF FATE is a STAND-ALONE friends-to-lovers, single-parent romance. No cheating. No cliffhanger.)

EXCERPT

Scout

“It’s been a long time since we danced together.”
She doesn’t look up, but her smile grows. “It was homecoming, first dance of the year.”
“And the last. I still can’t believe you didn’t go to prom with me. All high school romances end at the prom.”
Her nose curls. “We were not a high school romance.”
“We might’ve been. The high school quarterback, all around hot guy who falls for the quiet, bookish future librarian. It’s the perfect setup for a movie.”
“All-around hot guy…” Her brown eyes roll adorably, and I’m glad the tension seems to have melted. “I’m not a future librarian.”
“I know.” I think about that night. “You did promise to have my back, though.”
“Until you broke the rules and kissed me.”
“It was a really good kiss. We should try it again to see if we’ve still got it.”
She steps out of my arms. “I’ve got a job to finish. Then I’m leaving Fireside.”
“Okay.” I shrug. “I’m not going to be here for long. Maybe we could pass the time together. Hang out.” I lean down to catch her eye. “What do you say, Tink?”
“Tink?”
“Tinkerbell. You remind me of her.”
“Does that make you Peter Pan, the eternal man-child?”
“I’m no child.” It comes out a bit hungrier than I intended, and her cheeks turn red so fast.
Should I say oops? I’m sure as hell not taking it back.
“I’ve got to go.”
She does it, too. She walks off, leaving me alone on the dance floor…
