BLURB

Dane Golden—Best friend. Temptation in football cleats. Roommate?

I’m screwed.

His followers don’t call him Pretty Boy D for nothing. The guy is, literally, God’s gift to women. I should know. I’ve watched chicks throw themselves at him since puberty.

Sharing his loft should be simple. Easy. But shortly after I settle in, we realize being “just friends” was so much easier when we weren’t sleeping under the same roof.

Seven years of thinking we had this down to a science goes out the window the night Dane sees my “Never Have I Ever” list. Now, he’s on a mission to help me cross off the top four items. Some of which aren’t quite as innocent as he’d expect.

What he’s proposing will break the rules we agreed to when I first came to stay here. He wants me to give in, to let my guard down and face my feelings for once. At least, that’s what that wicked look in his eyes and the mounting heat between us suggests.

This isn’t how I imagined being roommates would go. But a girl can only stare temptation in its green eyes for so long and not weaken.

My best friend wants to have his way with me and, right or wrong… I think I might let him.

***

Pretty Boy D is a full-length standalone novel. This book can absolutely be read on its own, but when you’re done, it’s recommended that you check out more from the Golden triplets and Joss in the complete enemies-to-lovers trilogy, KINGS OF CYPRESS PREP.

Do you enjoy the frustratingly hot push and pull of a good friends-to-lovers or roommates-to-lovers romance? Then you’ll love getting to know Dane and Joss. Due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd. Expect an HEA and no trigger warnings needed.

Review – Treasured by Lexi Blake

55061874. sy475

Treasured; Masters and Mercenaries #22.5 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 22, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Novella/BDSM/Suspense Romance

Author: Lexi Blake

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I never get enough of returning to Lexi’s M&M world and now my excitement levels are extra high that I’m getting to delve into the love lives of the children of some of my favorite characters.

David Hawthorne is the stepson of Sean Taggart and the fact that I’m not only getting Sean’s advice as a father, but getting a double dose of Ian as David’s uncle and Tessa’s employer it was like having all the holidays bundled together all at once. Over the moon didn’t even begin to describe my happiness levels.

Tessa Santiago and David Hawthorne are both rich with history within the Taggart-McKay world. Tessa was engaged to Michael Malone, the wealthy oil billionaire, and David Hawthorne is Sean Taggart’s step-son. Both Michael and Sean are prominent men, which makes this story so much sweeter.

Tessa had already broken an engagement to a man who ran in the elite circle of an elite world. While the break up was amblicle between Michael and Tessa and they have remained friends, she refuses to put herself back in the position where money and social status is everything and the relationship comes second.She hated the pressure of always being “on” and living in the spotlight.

When she meets David there is an instant connection, but she doesn’t connect him with the Taggart family, he has a different last name after all, but when she discovers who he actually is, she ghosts his advances. She has no desire to live in the spotlight again, but she also can’t stop thinking about him.

David has never really felt that he fit in with his family, his brother Kyle is more of a Taggart and speaks his step-fathers language than he does. David is a professor and currently working on writing a biography for his tenure when Tessa is assigned as his bodyguard. It wouldn’t normally be a problem, but she’d rejected his advances once and he doesn’t need the rejection again, especially when he has work to do.

These two blaze with chemistry and could set the jungle on fire, but there is a mystery to solve. Could David solve the puzzles that lead to a treasure and also solve the mystery of the woman assigned to him before it’s time to leave the island?

For fans of this series, there are several dropped hints to Lexi’s upcoming books without giving too much away, but personally each one made me giddy. I love the 1001 Dark Night novellas for this very reason. The other joy of reading these short novellas is because new readers get a taste of an author’s writing, we get introduced to new characters and while it may be part of a series, you don’t necessarily need to be fully versed in the world, but just one small taste and you will want to read them all.

Synopsis:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lexi Blake comes a new story in her Masters and Mercenaries series…

David Hawthorne has a great life. His job as a professor at a prestigious Dallas college is everything he hoped for. Now that his brother is back from the Navy, life seems to be settling down. All he needs to do is finish the book he’s working on and his tenure will be assured. When he gets invited to interview a reclusive expert, he knows he’s gotten lucky. But being the stepson of Sean Taggart comes with its drawbacks, including an overprotective mom who sends a security detail to keep him safe. He doesn’t need a bodyguard, but when Tessa Santiago shows up on his doorstep, the idea of her giving him close cover doesn’t seem so bad.

Tessa has always excelled at most anything she tried, except romance. The whole relationship thing just didn’t work out for her. She’s not looking for love, and she’s certainly not looking for it with an academic who happens to be connected to her boss’s family. The last thing she wants is to escort an overly pampered pretentious man-child around South America to ensure he doesn’t get into trouble. Still, there’s something about David that calls to her. In addition to watching his back, she will have to avoid falling into the trap of soulful eyes and a deep voice that gets her heart racing.

But when the seemingly simple mission turns into a treacherous race for a hidden artifact, David and Tess know this assignment could cost them far more than their jobs. If they can overcome the odds, the lost treasure might not be their most valuable reward.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Review – Ache by Marley Valentine

Ache 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: June 22, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Friends-to-Lovers/MM Romance

Author: Marley Valentine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An achingly deep, beautiful book. Ache delves into touchy subjects, but it’s written with such personal emotion, that it transports the reader to an entirely different level to deliver all the feels.

Gael and Jordan have been friends since Kindergarten, but at some point those friendship feelings changed, at least for Jordan. However, Jordan kept them under lock and key as his BFF, Gael was straight. It isn’t until Gael’s bachelor party that all of those pent up feelings come out, but how do you lock back up what has now been released, especially when the man you love is getting married to someone else, a woman at that?

Gael is engaged to Elena and he does love his fiancee. However, if he really looked deep at his feelings, he loves Jordan more. He knows it’s messed up and he shouldn’t have feelings for his best friend when he’s engaged to someone else, but when Jordan takes him away for his bachelor party, to celebrate his pending marriage no less, Gael let’s his pent up feelings known. What’s the worst that could happen?

This book is so much more than two men lost in a craze of lust and emotion. They discuss the ramifications of what could happen should they pursue anything. They talk about their past, their future, the possibilities, they look at every angle and I love that they consider not just them but the ripple effect of how their actions will affect those they love. This is a book about real world consequences based in a fictional setting. I LOVE THIS!! It pulls on those deep heartstrings while still connecting to the characters. I was completely immersed in Gael and Jordan’s story the entire time and loved reading a new author.

I loved discovering a new author and I will not hesitate to jump back into something else she writes, as a matter of fact, I’m already itching to seek out more.

Ache brings the feels, the angst, and the right amount of steam to be an excellent read.

Synopsis:

From USA Today bestselling author Marley Valentine comes an all new emotional, friends-to-lovers gay romance.

I couldn’t tell you when I fell in love with Gael Herrera, but I wish I knew how to make it stop.

Falling in love with a straight man is a rookie mistake. But falling in love with my soon-to-be-married-to-a-woman best friend is nothing but heartache.

Through all the years, and all the men I’ve fooled around with, he’s always been at the back of my mind. An unrequited crush I wish I could shake. A dream that was never going to come true.

When I whisk him off to a surprise bachelor party weekend in Vegas, I surrender to the idea that this is an opportunity for me to finally let go of my feelings for him and say goodbye.

But after a heated exchange and an even hotter kiss, everything I thought I knew about our friendship changed.

Maybe I had it wrong. Maybe, after all this time, we were more than best friends. Maybe, just maybe, he felt it too.

Blog Tour – The Bully by Sophie Lark

I Know Her Secret…

The Bully, an all-new enemies-to-lovers standalone in The Kingmakers Series from bestselling author Sophie Lark, is available now!

Cat is in so much trouble. She did something bad, and I saw.

I’ll keep her secret… for a price.

Poor, sweet, timid Cat should never have come to Kingmakers. It’s a place for monsters and killers. People like me.

She wandered into the lion’s den and now she’s mine.

Mine to play with. Mine to torment. Mine to break…

The Lark Notes:
My very first inspiration for Kingmakers was Dean Yenin. I wanted to write a true anti-hero, with a character arc spanning three books. Dean will make you feel all the things, sometimes against your will. You’ll love him and hate him and love him again, and never get him out of your head. – Sophie

“The Bully” is the third installment in the epic dark mafia Kingmakers series. It’s a bully romance, full of dark, twisted enemies-to-lovers conflict, and some dubious scenes. Reader beware, this one is intense.

Excerpt

I have to return to my own life at Kingmakers. Even if there’s something horrible waiting there for me. 

It’s ironic. My father is forbidden to force me into a marriage contract against my will. But I’ve already trapped myself in something far, far worse. 

The moment I step foot aboard the ship to Kingmakers, I’m looking around for Dean Yenin. I remember the last words we spoke to each other as though it were three minutes ago, instead of three months. 

“I know what you did . . . 

“I saw you . . . 

“I won’t tell. But understand this . . . I own you now. When we come back to school, you’re mine. My servant. My slave. For as long as I want you . . .”

I almost spilled my secret to Zoe a hundred times. I almost told her what I did. 

But in the end, I stuffed the words down again, into the ball of frozen fear that’s been lodged deep in my guts all this time. 

This is my burden to bear, not hers. If I told Zoe the truth, she’d never feel free to go to L.A. with Miles. 

She’d be compelled to stay with me, to try to protect me from something she simply can’t prevent.

 Dean knows what I did. He could tell the Chancellor at any time. Nothing can stop him from doing that. My only chance is to stay on his good side. To trust in his mercy. 

The only problem is that I don’t think he has any goddamned mercy. 

I’m trying to please a man who can’t be pleased. 

Dean is spiteful. Vengeful. Full of rage. 

He could destroy me with a single word, just because I looked at him sideways. 

The train of his hatred is long and complicated. 

He hates Leo Gallo because of the feud between their families. 

He hates Miles and Zoe because Miles is Leo’s cousin. 

And he hates me because I’m Zoe’s sister. 

But that barely scratches the surface of his fury. I’ve thought about this long and hard over the summer, wondering how I truly attracted his ire. 

The real reason he hates me is that I saw him in a private, unguarded moment. I saw him sobbing after Ozzy’s mother was executed by the Chancellor. 

I saw him hunched over, tears streaming down his face, as he gave in to the storm of pain inside him. 

And he will never, never, never forgive me for that. 

I saw Dean weak and vulnerable. He’ll have me killed before he’ll chance me telling anybody else. 

Like a fool, I handed him the perfect leverage over me. 

I murdered Rocco Prince, my sister’s intended fiancé. 

And Dean knows it. 

The Rule of Recompense is the most iron-clad law of Kingmakers: an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, life for a life. 

If Dean tells anyone what I did, I’ll be executed, just like Ozzy’s mother.
