Review – Flipping Love You by Erin Nicholas

57412809. sy475

Flipping Love You; Boys of Bayou Gone Wild #3 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 29, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Surprise Pregnancy/Contemporary Romance

Author: Erin Nicholas

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Did someone crank up the heat? I need to jump in with the adorable penguins and cool off because I am head over tail in love with Flipping Love You!

Holy hotness! Get your fan’s at the ready and make sure you have an ice cold beverage when you sit down to read this book! Zeke and Jill are beyond hot. They are Louisiana summer hot!! It’s a good thing the penguins that Jill takes care of enjoy the warm weather because they upped the steam in Autre. Am I getting my point across yet?😉

Zeke Landry has always enjoyed the ladies and the ladies enjoyed him, but when he meets Jill Morris she is unlike any other woman he’s ever met. Not only is she the lowest maintenance woman he’s come across, but he soon learns that she cares more about, not just animals, but penguins in particular more than people. She is such a workaholic that she forgets about things like eating, doing laundry, people’s birthdays, basically all of those small things that eventually lead to big things that have ended any kind of relationship she’s ever tried to have in the past.

Jill prefers to keep things simple, like friends-with-benefits, which she knew moving to Louisiana she’d have to find a new “friend”, so when hot, tattooed Zeke just so happens to have an accident in front of her motel the first night she’s in town, she invites him back to her room. She isn’t shy in asking for what she wants and Zeke loves the fresh, honest approach, another thing to add to his growing list of what makes her unique. Every moment they spend together only grows his fascination and when one of those moments accidentally causes their friends-with-benefits to be a bit more permanent…well, Zeke isn’t exactly upset about that prospect.

My favorite parts, aside from the honesty and frank openness between Zeke and Jill, was truly in the sweet moments when they realized that when you find the person you love you become a better version of yourself. Neither Jill nor Zeke were bad people before meeting one another, but when they accidently fall, they also accidentally became better versions of the awesome people they already were. I’ll let you discover what that truly means, but just know it truly made me smile every single time it happened in this book.

My other favorite part is Ellie’s definition of having children. “They are like a hurricane”. I’ve never heard something more perfectly accurate in all of my life. This entire scene between Ellie and Jill, well actually with the entire family, is really the best.

How Erin keeps topping these wild boys of the bayou I don’t know, but she does and Flipping Love You is everything cute, fun, and totally hot to add to this amazing series!

Synopsis:

He’s the tattooed bad boy her mama warned her about.
She’s his hot mess — but mostly hot — next door neighbor.
Until a two-night-stand gives them the surprise of a lifetime…

Jillian Morris is a workaholic who forgets to watch the time. And to eat. And to change her shoes. And to keep even a house-plant alive. And to have any kind of a personal life.

Now an eccentric millionaire has left her eight million dollars. And eight penguins. Yes, real live penguins. She’s a wildlife vet who specializes in penguins, so that makes sense. Kind of. She can, and does, keep penguins alive and well. She now just has to move them cross-country to her friend’s new animal park.

So if anyone deserves a one-night (or two) stand with a hot, younger, tattooed bad boy on a motorcycle, it’s her. Or so Jill tells herself when Zeke Landry flips his bike in front of her motel and she stitches him up.

If only she’d known who he really was.
And that he was the fall-hard-and-fast type.
And the protective type.
And that one night would turn into more like nine-months of being… sigh… very personal.

Review – Lessons in Sin by Pam Godwin

57985189. sy475

Lessons in Sin; Midnight Dynasty 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 29, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Taboo/Forbidden/Age-Gap/Dark Romance

Author: Pam Godwin

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Powerful, addicting, and down right sinful!! The very definition of taboo romance – I was sucked in and couldn’t put this book down!

Lessons in Sin is sinful and smart, while also being witty and playful, the very essence of the story captured both Magnus and Tinsley’s personalities perfectly. The darkness, the curiosity, the overwhelming need and desire was all well written between the pages – this taboo story was like nothing I’ve ever read and I couldn’t get enough!

Tinsley is fierce, intelligent and a pure force for Father Magnus, a man who for the past nine years since dedicating his life to God, hasn’t strayed once. However, when Tinsley’s angelic face tempts his demons, right along with her sarcastic retorts and bratty attitude, Magnus isn’t able to keep a lock and key on the celibacy that he chained up years ago. The more she taunts him the more his monster is clamoring to break free. Nothing may be able to stop the rip tide of what is to come, but that is usually what happens in the presence of a Constantine.

Tinsley is everything I could have hoped she would be. Certainly a Constantine in every sense of the strong, independent, and fierce woman she needs to be for the world her last name requires of her, but she’s also intelligent, has a heart, and is fiercely loyal when it is justified. The more I got to know her the more I really enjoyed her character and knew she was perfect for Magnus along with being worthy of her last name.

Magnus was a bit of a mystery when the story began, but that aloof hands off man, helps keep him a shroud of in his darkness to start with. He’s dominate, in an almost scary way, yet he does things that let you know he still has a sense of compassion. He’s such a force unto himself that it’s easy to see why Tinsley gravitates to him, but know it is a slow pull and burn that will burn so hot…holy sinfulness!!

Lessons in Sin also fit perfectly within the Constantine world. It completely upped my need to read more of this family and within this world. I need to find out all of their hidden secrets and make sure they all find their dark and twisted HEA’s.

Synopsis:

There’s no absolution for the things I’ve done.
But I found a way to control my impulses.
I became a priest.

As Father Magnus Falke, I suppress my cravings. As the headteacher of a Catholic boarding school, I’m never tempted by a student.

Until Tinsley Constantine.

The bratty princess challenges my rules and awakens my dark nature. With each punishment I lash upon her, I want more. In my classroom, private rectory, and bent over my altar, I want all of her.

One touch risks everything I stand for. My faith. My redemption. And even my life.

As if that could stop me. I need her pain, and her heart, and she needs my lessons in sin.

New Release – Treasured by Lexi Blake

Treasured, a fast paced and intriguing novella in the A Masters and Mercenaries Series from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake and 1,001 Dark Nights, is available now!

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.**

New Release – Ache by Marley Valentine

Marley Valentine has revealed the cover for Ache!From USA Today bestselling author Marley Valentine comes an all new emotional, friends-to lovers gay romance standalone.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is ecCLQPi4pkSHQBjRqzYQJFvkPj9zVRD8DIUE17qfXlsnOmb3RLncyHLd8BdNt2icP2WoODnHSr0g15Fhp2ccL2pgu2iTnpDuD--LdCBRwpVMdseFF1NhBMGZaGvRnvNHYmZI_8et



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.
