Review – Wildcat by Rebecca Jenshak

Book cover for Wildcat (Wildcat Hockey) by Rebecca Jenshak

Wildcat; Wildcat Hockey #1 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 14, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Sports Romance

Author: Rebecca Jenshak

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



Fun and flirty, Wildcat launches a new generation of hot hockey players to fall in love with.

Have you ever met someone you’ve instantly connected with, felt like you’ve known for years, or bonded with immediately? Leo Lohan and Scarlett Miller have that from the very moment they meet one another and their one hot and perfect night together should have been the start of something great….instead it was the start of every – what not to do after you meet someone – tale. It’s super cute and I loved this entire book.

Leo is normally a stable guy, smart and hard working. He hasn’t had a one-night stand in quite a long time, and when he catches the eye of Scarlett he wasn’t looking for a one and done, but unfortunately his crazy hockey schedule made it where he didn’t contact her after their amazing night together. When he finally had a moment to stop and think about how much time had actually passed, not only did he felt horrible, but he also ran into her again, at his coach’s house. Oops.

Can they work past this dating faux pas? Not if Scarlett has anything to say about it. She doesn’t date sports players. Been there and still recovering from the scars of that huge life mistake. Can she forget about the smexy Leo, not when she suddenly sees him everywhere and everyday. She loves delicious eye candy, but when did life begin working against her?

Wildcat is the perfect blend of flirty, fun, with a splash of angst that continually brings me back to Jenshak’s books, but this one in particular had me turning pages so fast I never wanted to leave and then I hated how fast I read the book. This new world, contains a new group of guys to fall in love with, who are not only fun when they all hang out together, but the glimpses we get into their personalities and backgrounds already…well, I’m terribly excited to return over and over again.


I met my dream girl.
That’s right. She’s stunning and the worst bartender I’ve ever seen.
I should have gone home and gone to sleep—dream girl or not. I had an early morning and the season was starting soon. But when she threatened me with boy band karaoke I couldn’t help myself. I went. The stars aligned.
I have never felt more alive or wanted anyone more than I want her.
When it’s time for me to head on my annual pre-season boys trip, I barely let her go.
It’s been a week and I can’t stop thinking about her.
Except there she is. Right here at the Wildcat’s kickoff party.
And as luck would have it, my dream girl is the coach’s youngest daughter.
But everyone knows the coach’s daughter is off limits. Right?

Wildcat is a full-length sports romance with a hot-as-puck hero, the coach’s daughter, and an unfortunate case of mistaken identity.

The Wildcats are the youngest team in the NHL. On the ice, they’re cocky, determined, and ready to take the league by storm. Off the ice? They’re always up for a wild time.

Review – Screwed Up by Harloe Rae

59487581. sy475

Screwed Up; Bayside Heroes #2 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 13, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Opposites Attract Romance

Author: Harloe Rae

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars



A sweet, contemporary romance filled with fun dates and a no-string relationship that becomes so much more.

Larson approaches Dane for a no-strings arrangement to let off some steam from her high pressure job and Dane is the new security guard at the hospital that would normally not be the type of man she would date. This makes him the perfect man for not getting attached since he’s all about fun and not settling down.

Larson Belle and Dane Owens come from two different backgrounds and lead very different lives, but could Belle keep her Beast even if that wasn’t the agreement to begin with?

Their relationship moves pretty quick, but it is a no-strings relationship after all. Larson and Dane are steamy and have their own kinks, which was nice to see the buttoned up Dr. Belle loosen her lab coat.

This is a standalone story, but it does weave through the other characters of Bayside and what they may be going through in their own relationships too. It was nice to know who’s who, but not necessary to follow along in this particular storyline.


“He might be wrong, but I’m tired of being right.”

The extreme focus on my career has led to a lonely existence.
I don’t make time for much beyond the hospital walls.
And the pressure is getting to me.

Those who know me best highly recommend I take the edge off by any means necessary.
As it turns out, the new security guard at Bayside Regional is just what the doctor ordered.

Dane Owens is a disaster waiting to happen.
Maybe that’s why I can’t look away.
He plays fast and loose with no plans of slowing down.
Especially when it comes to dating.

We’re polar opposites, which is precisely why this arrangement is temporary.
But there’s plenty to keep us occupied until our expiration date.

All I need is for Dane to follow the rules that long.

A Bayside Heroes standalone romance.

People like to say the devil made them do it. And they would be right. I can bend anyone to my will. After all, I am the devil of Pembroke Prep. Only one person dares defy me. The one person I’ve ever wanted to be an angel for. But she despises me almost as much as I crave her. Serafina van Doren is the one temptation I can’t indulge, not with the secrets that I keep. But with the clock running out maybe it’s time to tempt her to the dark side.

New Release: These Thorn Kisses by Saffron A. Kent


Eighteen-year-old, Bronwyn Littleton is in love with a stranger she met on a summer night a year ago.

A stranger who was tall and broad in a way that made her feel safe. He had dark blue eyes that she can’t stop drawing in her sketch book. And he had a deep, soothing voice that she can’t stop hearing in her dreams.

That’s all she knows about him though.

Until she runs into him again. At St. Mary’s School for Troubled Teenagers – an all girls reform school – where she’s trapped because of a little crime she committed in the name of her art.

Now she knows that her dream man has a name: Conrad Thorne.

She knows that his eyes are way bluer and way more beautiful than she thought. And that his face is an artist’s wonderland.

But she also knows that Conrad is her best friend’s older brother. Which means he’s completely off-limits. Not to mention, he’s the new soccer coach, which makes him off-limits times two.

What makes him off-limits times three however, and this whole scenario an epic tragedy, is that, Conrad, Wyn’s dream man, has a dream girl of his own.

And he’s as much in love with his dream girl as Wyn is in love with him…

NOTE: This is a STANDALONE set in the world of St. Mary’s.
