BLURB

Ricky Ruiz—ruthless kingpin, reclusive heir, the one man I can’t seem to outrun.

Rumors buzz when a pic of me buying a pregnancy test goes viral. This wouldn’t be such a big deal if, roughly one month ago, I wasn’t also spotted with the new top-dog of Cypress Pointe’s most notorious crime family.

The same crime family my father dedicated his entire law enforcement career trying to bring to their knees.

Ricky inherited the money, the houses, the cars, but he also inherited the danger. He sleeps with one eye open and one finger on the trigger. So, when my name starts popping up alongside his on social media, the beast awakens, convinced there’s now a target on my back, too.

He’s not big on patience or subtlety, which I realize when I come home to find him waiting in a dark corner of my apartment, in no mood for a debate. He’s on a mission to collect what he believes is his.

Me.

My father warned me about the Ruiz family. If I’d listened, I might not be locked in a room inside Ricky’s home, I’d still have the job he decided to quit for me, and I’d still have my freedom.

I have no plans to be Ricky’s caged bird. Not even with an army of street soldiers at his disposal. He’d beg to differ. According to him, it’s just a matter of time before I give in and admit what he claims to have known from the beginning.

That I’m already his.

*

Trigger Warning: Ricky lives up to his reputation, so if you’re sensitive to excessive, explicit violence, you might want to pass this one up. There are also situations that may be triggering for those who have experienced pregnancy-related trauma. Reader discretion is advised.

Who could ever forget that summer in Lake Bittersweet…

It’s been seventeen years since Carly stepped foot in the sleepy lakeside community where she experienced her first love…and her first heartbreak. Since then, she’s struggled with her confidence, which is why she’s shocked that her father, rock legend Steven Gault, chose her as the executor of his will. Besides dealing with his shut-down music club and mountain of bills, did he have a reason to lure her back to Lake Bittersweet…like facing the boy who shattered her heart?

Carly Gault. The girl who got away. The girl he gave away. The moment he sees her, Fire Chief Thomas Cooper is hurled back in time to the summer that changed his life. He made the choice to put his family first, but Thomas has never forgotten the passionate, loving girl with the smoky-green gaze. She’s more beautiful than ever—but since that summer, his family has expanded in a way Carly may never, ever understand.

As long-ago secrets come to light, passion reignites between Carly and Thomas. But will one last shocker make it all go up in smoke like the last summer bonfire?

Review – A Merry Little Meet Cute by Julie Murphy and Sierra Simone

60121411

A Merry Little Meet Cute
(A standalone)

Publication Date: September 20, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Romantic Comedy/Holiday Romance

Author: Julie Murphy and Sierra Simone

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A Merry Little Meet Cute is giggle-snort-out loud funny. This steamy holiday read is hilarious, fun, and what I truly imagine happening on the sets of all of those Christmas movies – well, a girl can dream can’t she? LOL.

Bee and Nolan are cast in a Hallmark type of movie, but trademarks and all of that. Instead, their world is set up with the Hope Channel where the movie franchise is big on Christmas classics with cookie cutter scripts and full of holiday magic. Both Nolan and Bee need this good, wholesome rebranding for the same, but also different reasons, but for the family friendly part to stick, they both have to stay…well…squeaky clean.

Nolan is a former boy band pop star with a bad boy reputation that he needs to shed. He not only lost all of his earnings with a horrible contract during his singing years, he also threw gasoline on his reputation when he was caught in an orgy scandal. He’s now trying to wrangle in his past so he has a future and can help his mother with her mounting medical bills.

Nolan is the perfect mix of reformed bad boy sassy and reformed good guy sweet. I know I mentioned reformed twice. He’s walking a very fine line of reformation and he’s so stinkin’ cute on which side of the line he’s on at any given moment, I just want to squeeze his cheeks at any given moment – I’ll let you guess which cheeks I’m talking about. I’ll just say, when he meets Bee, he recognizes her and he’s been a huge fan of hers for several years. His fangirling over her is swoon worthy in itself. Here he is, Mr. Former Popstar and he has his own crush. Like I said, he’s adorable in a totally filthy way.

Bee or Bianca von Honey as she’s known by her stage name, is trying to go legit for the first time. She’s been a huge hit in the porn industry, but this is the first time she’s making a movie with all of her clothes on. She’s really hoping that fans don’t cross streams or this may be the first and last movie she does if her secret identity gets out, but until then she’s going to enjoy every moment of her new, clothed, experience.

Bee is fresh, wide eyed, and hasn’t let the world gobble up her youthful spirit or positivity. I loved that about her, not only from what her normal day job is, but also from where she lives and how much she struggled as a young adult. Overall, Bee is the kind of girl I’d want to be best friends with and as a plus she has the best suitcase full of accessories – LOL, Bee is just a ray of sunshine and that is what Nolan finds even more attractive once he gets over his initial crush. What’s even cuter between these two, Bee grew up listening to his music and she’s a total fan of his, but don’t let that cat out of the bag.

Seriously, this book is fun, steamy, and chuck full of amazing secondary characters that filled the Christmas stockings and tied the entire storyline up to perfection. I fell in love with everything about A Merry Little Meet Cute and hope to meet some of these characters again.

Synopsis:
Cowritten by #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Murphy and USA Today bestselling author Sierra Simone—a steamy plus-size holiday rom-com about an adult film star who is semi-accidentally cast as a lead in a family-friendly Christmas movie, and the former bad-boy pop star she falls in love with.

Bee Hobbes (aka Bianca Von Honey) has a successful career as a plus-size adult film star. With a huge following and two supportive moms, Bee couldn’t ask for more. But when Bee’s favorite producer casts her to star in a Christmas movie he’s making for the squeaky-clean Hope Channel, Bee’s career is about to take a more family-friendly direction.

Forced to keep her work as Bianca under wraps, Bee quickly learns this is a task a lot easier said than done. Though it all becomes worthwhile when she discovers her co-star is none other than childhood crush Nolan Shaw, an ex-boy band member in desperate need of career rehab. Nolan’s promised his bulldog manager to keep it zipped up on set, and he will if it means he’ll be able to provide a more stable living situation for his sister and mom.

But things heat up quickly in Christmas Notch, Vermont, when Nolan recognizes his new co-star from her ClosedDoors account (oh yeah, he’s a member). Now Bee and Nolan are sneaking off for quickies on set, keeping their new relationship a secret from the Hope Channel’s execs. Things only get trickier when the reporter who torpedoed Nolan’s singing career comes snooping around—and takes an instant interest in mysterious newcomer Bee.

And if Bee and Nolan can’t keep their off-camera romance behind the scenes, then this merry little meet cute might end up on the cutting room floor.

Cover Reveal - 2022, New Releases

Cover Reveal – Influenced by Kelsey Clayton

Welcome to the Swype House,

where the secrets are bigger than the…

Influenced, a sizzling enemies-to-lovers new adult standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Kelsey Clayton is coming May 27th, and we have the first look at the gorgeous cover!

The rules are simple:

Fake it for the cameras.

Do it for the views.

Don’t kill each other. 

It felt like an easy yes when I was invited to change my bio from, “Kaia Blakely, college student,” to “Kaia Blakely, newest influencer at the Swype House.”

Then I met Declan Royce. His profile highlights his looks and his humor, but it ought to read, “Owner of an ego so large, it was given its own zip code.”

Suddenly, not killing each other feels like an impossible task.

So yes, it was death threats we were whispering in the background of that viral video, not sweet nothings. So no, there’s zero reason to keep the #Kailan hashtag trending.

Except that it’s our job. So it looks like we’re adding another rule to the list:

Don’t let anyone find out the truth.

Excerpt:

MARY

I’m messing around on my phone while the boys go in. I’ve never seen the appeal of haunted houses. You want to be scared? Why is that fun? I don’t know. Maybe I’m just a killjoy.

“Pretty Girl?” a familiar voice has me lifting my head to see the newest kid to join our school, Charlie, standing closer than I expected.

“Oh, sorry, I thought you were talking to me,” I say the words faster than normal. What the hell is wrong with me? I guess I’m a little on edge being out here alone.

“I did, Pretty Girl. I said, hi.” He sits down next to me with his back against the wall. Close enough to have a conversation without yelling but not invading my personal space. Does he actually have some respect for girls? That would be a nice change.

“Mary,” I tell him my name since I can’t remember if I told him last night after the game.

“Pretty Girl works just fine for me.” His smile is flirty, but I don’t think he means any harm. He has one of those faces that doesn’t set off warning bells in my head. He’s friendly and nice. “Whatcha doin’ out here alone?” He looks around like he’s looking for something.

“The boys are inside, but it’s not really my thing.” Shit. Should I have said that? Now he knows I’m alone.

I’m looking around too, seeing if there are people around or a quick exit that I can get to. I hate that this kind of anxiety is my default, but Jared is making me paranoid when I’m alone. Even being out of town, I’m still jumpy, and I hate it.

“Boys?” He cocks his head.

“Julian and Dylan.”

He nods, the big friendly smile back on his face. “The ‘don’t fuck with my girl’ guy and the cornerback.”

I have to admit, I was holding my breath, getting ready to be very angry on Julian’s behalf, but I let out the air when he says something normal. It’s nice to have a normal conversation with someone.

Now I’m smiling back at him. I think I can be friends with this one. “Yeah. Them.” I look around to see if anyone is waiting on him but don’t see anything. “You come with someone?”

“No, I saw the sign and decided to check it out.” He shrugs. “I don’t have many people to hang out with. I figured the guys on the team wouldn’t mind me joining them, but I’m not sure I want to be friends with most of them.”

“Where are you from, by the way?” I haven’t talked to him much, so this is the most I’ve heard him speak. His accent is different than most of the ones I hear around here.

“’Bama.” He shoves his fist in the air and shouts, “Roll tide!”

“What the fuck?” Dylan’s pissed-off voice has me turning to watch him stalk toward us. Uh-oh. He does not look happy. “First of all, cats, cats, cats.

“That was fast,” I comment. Julian looks amused as he follows Dylan. What the hell happened in there? Why is Dylan angry? Charlie is just talking to me.

“Second, what the fuck are you doing?” Dylan pulls me off the ground and shoves me behind him, squaring off with Charlie for zero reason. What the actual crap? He’s being way more aggressive than he needs to be.

“Someone’s jealous,” Julian murmurs.

Oh.

Oops.

“Just keeping Pretty Girl company while she was waitin’ for ya.” Charlie’s easygoing vibe doesn’t change at all, despite Dylan wanting to kill him. He’s either familiar with what is happening or clueless. I’m not sure which.

“She doesn’t need you looking out for her. Fuck off,” Dylan snaps, fury radiating from him in waves.

“Hey.” I place my hand carefully on his ribs and slide around to his chest. He’s breathing harder, his lungs preparing his body to move quickly and attack if needed. “He’s not a threat.”

A light bulb goes off in Charlie’s head. “I’m just a good ole country boy looking out for the lady. That’s how I was raised. Take care of the women.” He raises his hands, palms out, to show Dylan he doesn’t mean any harm.

“Well, the good ole country boys around here keep trying to rape my girl and like to hang black guys from trees. Excuse the fuck out of me for not trusting the newest country bumpkin.”

The switch from laid back to angry is so fast it actually scares me a bit. Charlie is hot, his fists clenching at his sides, and he bounces on the balls of his cowboy boots. “That shit ain’t happenin’ on my watch.”

“How about gays? You got a problem with them?” I ask over Dylan’s shoulder.

“Nope.” The answer is quick with no hesitation.

I smile at him. “I think I have a new best friend.”

“The fuck you do,” Julian and Dylan say at the same time, making me smile wider.

Charlie relaxes a little, he and Dylan still eyeing each other. I step away from Dylan and reach my hand out to shake Charlie’s. “Welcome to the island of misfit toys.”

He smiles at me and shakes my hand. While his big mitt is around my tiny hand, he winks at me. Julian laughs, and Dylan barks, “Watch it.” Before I’ve pulled my hand back, Dylan wraps an arm around my waist and pulls me into him.

“Hands off, bumpkin.” Uh-oh. Charlie has a nickname.

“Aw, you like him,” I tease Dylan. Julian snickers and moves to stand next to us.

“No, I don’t. Shut up,” he grumbles.

Julian slaps Charlie’s shoulder. “Come on, man, you can hang with us.” They walk toward the other building with games and food inside.

Dylan stiffens behind me, mumbling under his breath, “You watch it too.”

 

 

Blurb:

I’m the preacher’s daughter.

Dylan is the punk son of the bigoted sheriff.

Julian the new kid in town everyone talks about in whispers and avoids like the plague.

Dylan and Julian shouldn’t want each other.

It’s dangerous.

This town won’t accept them and yet I run towards the fire because love deserves a chance.

It’s not just them that’s in danger this time.

They both want me too.

I crave them and all they can offer me.

But I can’t have them.

It’s wrong. Perverted. Immoral. And I’m a good church girl.

At least, that’s what everyone thinks…

 

Can we hide who we are from a town who’s against us or will we be burned by their hatred?

 

*This is Mary’s story and can be read as a stand alone but will be best enjoyed after reading Bully King. This is an interracial MMF story and will have triggering language and situations due to racism and homophobia. Please proceed with caution.

 

 

About the Author:

Sarcastic and snarky, I love to laugh and read dark fucked up shit. I write about tortured pasts and hot sex, a happily ever after that has to be worked for. My stories tend to be a little dark but with some comic relief, typically in the form of sarcasm.

I like to dabble in a little of everything when it comes to stories. Romantic suspense, MM, a bit of erotica, with plans for Greek retellings, maybe some fairytale retellings, and some shifters. I write broken people who fight for their happily ever after, in all the many forms it takes.

I married a sexy man in uniform who let me spawn and am now raising a mutinous army of hell raisers that I created myself, all while he defends our country. I drink too much coffee and am sexually frustrated for your freedom. If you see me online, I’m probably sitting in a closet, hiding from my kids.

I have a ridiculous addiction to Archer, Sherlock, Supernatural, and The Big Bang Theory. I live my life spewing TV quotes and sarcasm. I’m a self confessed ass, not easily offended, and I love to laugh, almost as much as I love sleep. My laundry is rarely folded or put away and I have probably only showered once this week.

I hate schedules and planning, I have calendars, planners, and my phone yet can’t remember anything. Somehow, I’ve managed to keep 3 kids alive but I really need to become an adultier adult.

I like backpacks, and I cannot lie…

Now, people?

I can deny.

But whenever the consultant walks in with a smile on his face, encouraging me to find my place, I damn near lose a lung.

Ugh.

Asthma.

I swear, if I was an average lady, or if Mother Nature didn’t hate me…then I might fit in, in the role I’m in, and the consultant would want more with me.

 

Fynn

 

One of my best mates tried to warn me…

That falling in love might be on my journey.

Make her bolder.

Let her lean on my shoulder.

Blog Tour – Matchmaking a Billionaire by Denise Grover Swank and A.R. Casella writing as Angela Denise

He’s a rich, entitled jerk and she’s falling for him fast.

Matchmaking a Billionaire, a hilarious, billionaire, matchmaking rom-com from New York Times bestselling author Denise Grover Swank and USA Today bestselling author Angela Casella writing as Angela Denise is out now!

Excerpt

Bryn
“People are always watching you, aren’t they?” I ask.
Rory takes a step toward me, and I think again about all those watching eyes. Everyone in town will be watching us now, and they’ll sense . . .
Well, they’ll sense that we’re obviously in lust with each other.
“Are you watching me, Bryn?” he says softly.
Well, throw a bucket of water on me and call me the Wicked Witch of the West.
“Sometimes it’s hard to look away,” I admit, my mouth forming the words before I have time to give it a talking-to.
His eyes sparkle, as if I just confirmed something he’s wondered about, desperately. “Do you ask so many questions of all of your clients?”
“Yes,” I fib. While he might be averse to white lies, I’m not. But before that sparkle can dim all the way, I admit, “But I don’t usually offer any information in return.”
His smile burrows under my skin. Then he glances up, taking in our observers, and says, “Let me walk you to your car.”
“It’s in the back of the parking lot,” I say.
He nods. “Lead the way.”
He walks beside me, a little too close, and even though it’s a warm night, I can feel his heat leaping toward me, like flames to paper.
Once we’re away from the front of the brewery, his hand slips to the small of my back and lingers there, and if there’s ever been anything so sexy, I don’t know what it is. We’re about to pass a copse of trees on the side of the lot when he glances around, grabs my hand, and pulls me into it. We’re in near darkness, evergreens dancing around us, and we’re standing close enough that I can feel his breath feathering my face.
His eyes are so warm they nearly immolate me.
“I don’t mean to tell you how to do your job,” he says, “but I think you succeeded before you started. I want to be set up with you.”
“Micromanaging me already, are you?” I ask, a little breathless.
“Yes.” He reaches up to touch my jaw, tracing the shape of it. “I’d like to kiss you.”
I should tell him no. Setting aside the whole four dates thing, we’re going to be working together. Giving into this . . . madness . . . is the last thing we should be doing, but I’ve been so lonely, and he’s more of a man than I’ve encountered in . . .
Forever.
He’s the kind of man I didn’t think existed in real life, to be honest.
So maybe I can temporarily forget I’m setting myself up for disaster. Because just about a year ago, my fiancé of twenty-four hours and I broke up, and within a week he was with another woman. Within three months, he’d married her. If I let myself fall for Rory, if I let myself give in to these feelings tugging at me, insisting I acknowledge them, then I won’t just be giving myself a front-row seat to him moving on . . . I might have the displeasure of being the person who helps him do it.
Still, I find myself leaning into him. “Then quit talking and do it already.”

Read Kay’s Review: Matchmaking a Billionaire

Synopsis

Bryn

I used to believe in what we do at Mayberry Matchmakers, but now? Love is just another four-letter word.

Too bad my grandmother hasn’t gotten the memo. When tech billionaire Rory Byrne approaches us, wanting to develop the matchmaking app my sister and I dreamed up (and Nana shot down), she jumps at the chance. My grandmother is nothing if not opportunistic.

Of course, there’s a catch. She’ll only do it if Rory lets us matchmake him the old-fashioned way.

He’s going to say no.

Please God, let him say no.

The last thing I want to do is matchmake an entitled rich jerk…especially one who looks like sin and talks a good game.

***

Rory

I’ve screwed up in love a few times, but I never screw up in business. Mayberry Matchmakers has the idea for something amazing, and I have the money and the experience to make it come to life.

I should deny Nana Mayberry’s condition. If I let them matchmake me, it’ll be all over the news, and making headlines has never interested me…especially not after the personal betrayal that nearly broke me. But I’m having trouble caring about what I should do, because Bryn Mayberry is smart, snarky, and not the slightest bit impressed with me.

Actually, this may be Mayberry Matchmakers’ easiest job yet.

She speaks English and smattering of Spanish and Chinese which she learned through an intensive Nick Jr. immersion period.

Hidden talents include the gift of justification and the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within two minutes.

💋ABOUT THE BOOK 🏈

Walking away would be the smartest decision, but no one’s ever accused me of being smart. Cold, determined, brutal, but never smart. 

Willa’s mine from the moment I rescue her. I protect her from a brawling crowd and she stares up at me like I’m her prince charming. No one’s ever looked at me like that. No one has ever dared to come that close. 

I didn’t know she was the little sister of one of my biggest rivals. Her brother and I have both drawn blood on the field, dislocated joints, broken bones, but I’ll never want to show her that side of me. 

I long to be the man she believes I am, but there’s only one way I know how to win—how to survive—and that’s ensuring my enemies lose. 

Once he finds out who his sister has been dating it’ll be all-out war, and I might lose the only woman who’s ever looked at me like I’m not built only for destruction. 

Changing my ways won’t be easy, but I’m willing to risk it all for her.

 AUTHOR BIO

Maya Hughes, that’s me!, can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! 🙂 I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.

I love writing stories that capture the possibilities of the paths less travelled and enjoy experiencing life through my characters’ eyes.

I’m the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can’t breathe, traveling with my family and Jeff Goldblum.

Review – Reckless Princess by Tracy Lorraine

Reckless Princess; Knights Ridge Empire #8
(#2 within a trilogy, and #8 within a series)

Publication Date: May 5, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Bully/Mafia/Dark Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Toby really hates being coined as the nice guy, but….sigh…the way he is with Jodie is amazing. Sweet, protective, super alpha hot, but yeah, he’s also kinda of nice and there is nothing wrong with that because I adore Toby.

On the flip side, Toby is also a bad boy, he grew up in the mafia after all. His monster is the side he struggles with, not that it isn’t instinctual at this point in his life, but his monster has hurt the girl he’s come to care for and he doesn’t know how to win her back.

Jodie is hurt, she’s broken, and she’s more confused than ever. She was totally falling for Toby, but he ripped her heart out. However, once she’s had a moment to think and truths come to light, can she forgive the monster and be with the man she was falling for.

This book has ups and downs, sweet moments, steamy moments, and everything in between. Tracy continues to make characters I fall for, that top each other, and Toby and Jodie are sitting pretty in the number one spot.

Toby is the best of both worlds, completely sweet with a dark side that is possessive and a bit stalkerish. A total package. It’s no wonder he took over as my favorite Knight.

Reckless Princess ends on an emotional cliffhanger and I can hardly wait to find out what happens next.

Synopsis:

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next installment of her dark mafia, high school bully romance story set in the Knight’s Ridge Empire world.

I thought I knew pain.

I thought I’d experienced grief and loss.

But nothing could compare to the moment Toby reached into my chest and ripped my heart out. Shattering the very foundations my life has been built on.

Everything I thought I knew about him was destroyed in an instant. Confirming all my worst fears.

The man he’s shown himself to be has been an act.

A deception.

A sick and twisted game.

He’s nothing more than a monster.

I’m at rock bottom once again, trying to drag myself out of the pit of despair.

But fate is an evil master, and before long I find myself with no other place to turn but him.

He might be cruel.

Reckless.

Dangerous.

But I also know that he’ll do anything to right his wrongs.

Because despite my tattered heart, he’s still trying to prove to me that he’s not all bad. That the sweet guy I fell so hard for really exists.

But will it be enough?

Dear Reader,
Reckless Princess is the second book in the Reckless trilogy in my Knight’s Ridge Empire series.

The First Love by Jennifer Bernard is now live!

https://geni.us/TheFirstLoveJB
Available on All Platforms

Who could ever forget that summer in Lake Bittersweet…

It’s been seventeen years since Carly stepped foot in the sleepy lakeside community where she experienced her first love…and her first heartbreak. Since then, she’s struggled with her confidence, which is why she’s shocked that her father, rock legend Steven Gault, chose her as the executor of his will. Besides dealing with his shut-down music club and mountain of bills, did he have a reason to lure her back to Lake Bittersweet…like facing the boy who shattered her heart?

Carly Gault. The girl who got away. The girl he gave away. The moment he sees her, Fire Chief Thomas Cooper is hurled back in time to the summer that changed his life. He made the choice to put his family first, but Thomas has never forgotten the passionate, loving girl with the smoky-green gaze. She’s more beautiful than ever—but since that summer, his family has expanded in a way Carly may never, ever understand.

As long-ago secrets come to light, passion reignites between Carly and Thomas. But will one last shocker make it all go up in smoke like the last summer bonfire?

Review – Rule by Caitlyn Dare

Book cover for Rule (Red Ridge Sinners MC Book 3) by Caitlyn Dare

Rule; Red Ridge Sinners MC #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: April 28, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Suspense/New Adult/Reverse Harem/MC Romance

Author: Caitlyn Dare

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This trilogy has been highly charged and emotional from the beginning. I was biting my nails up until the very end and I loved reading every moment of it.

Picking up right where Reap left off, the news is finally out that River is in a relationship with three men. Needless to say her protective brother isn’t happy, but even with Rhett’s big brother anger, River’s guys don’t waver in their growing love for her.

However, just as they’ve started to figure out a future together, the bottom always seems to drop out from underneath them.  Their friendship and their love for each other will be the only thing that can get them through the tough times ahead.

This final book in the trilogy is very emotional and of course still full of steam. Always count on Zach’s swagger for a few moments of levity and lots of love and family with this band of brothers.

Synopsis:

The truth is out—I’m in love with three Sinners.

Zach, Jax, and Diesel might want to make me theirs but there’s still too many secrets between us, ones that could ruin everything.

Ones that could break us.

They might rule my body.

Own my heart.

But ultimately, they have the power to break me.

Only it isn’t our future we have to worry about, because the past is about to catch up with us. And when it does…

Nothing will ever be the same again.

Rule is a full length dark enemies-to-lovers/bully romance. This is a why choose novel, meaning the main character has more than one love interest. It is book three in the series.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Matchmaking a Millionaire had its ups and downs. There were moments I was completely tuned in and empathetic to the characters plight, then there were times I really struggled to engage. Overall, it was a good interconnected beginning to the Mayberry Matchmakers series.

Bryn Mayberry says to herself over and over that she’s a cold woman and it comes across the page. It’s only when she’s interacting with Rory that she lights up and isn’t a Debbie Downer, for lack of a better term.  As the last Mayberry sibling willing to work alongside her Nana, Bryn Mayberry takes all the criticism, grief, and lack of empathy as Nana is not only a hard business woman, but also a cold-hearted woman in general. Bryn fears becoming her as she ages, but she also can’t seem to stop the swan dive over a cliff, that is until Rory Byrne walks into her life. A man she’s supposed to matchmake with someone else. Bryn lights up around Rory and those are the moments I couldn’t stop turning the pages.

Rory Byrne didn’t step foot into Mayberry Matchmakers looking for love, he’s a businessman and he actually went there to start a matchmaking app. Nana Mayberry saw an opportunity and wasn’t about to let him leave without without matchmaking him herself and so the story unfolds. Thank goodness for Bryn stepping in and saving him from all of her Nana’s plans, who truly is a horrible person, but somehow she steamrolls over everyone to always get her way. Back to Rory and Bryn, they do light up the pages as they get to know one another and…holy smokes….the hot nerd is on fire when the clothes start to disappear. Rory is kind, generous, super smart, oh and did I mention his bedroom skills? Yeah, total package.

So like I said, the story has really good moments with others that I struggled through, but overall a really good start to this new town of Highland Hills, with more couples already lined up. Matchmaking a Billionaire is an interconnected series with other characters from past series popping in or mentioned, but it’s not pertinent to read those books, this is a complete standalone.

Synopsis:

He’s everyone’s dream man but hers.


Bryn

I used to believe in what we do at Mayberry Matchmakers, but now? Love is just another four-letter word.

Too bad my grandmother hasn’t gotten the memo. When tech billionaire Rory Byrne approaches us, wanting to develop the matchmaking app my sister and I dreamed up (and Nana shot down), she jumps at the chance. My grandmother is nothing if not opportunistic.

Of course, there’s a catch. She’ll only do it if Rory lets us matchmake him the old-fashioned way.

He’s going to say no.

Please God, let him say no.

The last thing I want to do is matchmake an entitled rich jerk…especially one who looks like sin and talks a good game.

***

Rory

I’ve screwed up in love a few times, but I never screw up in business. Mayberry Matchmakers has the idea for something amazing, and I have the money and the experience to make it come to life.

I should deny Nana Mayberry’s condition. If I let them matchmake me, it’ll be all over the news, and making headlines has never interested me…especially not after the personal betrayal that nearly broke me. But I’m having trouble caring about what I should do, because Bryn Mayberry is smart, snarky, and not the slightest bit impressed with me.

Actually, this may be Mayberry Matchmakers’ easiest job yet.

https://geni.us/TheFirstLoveJB
Available on All Platforms


Who could ever forget that summer in Lake Bittersweet…

It’s been seventeen years since Carly stepped foot in the sleepy lakeside community where she experienced her first love…and her first heartbreak. Since then, she’s struggled with her confidence, which is why she’s shocked that her father, rock legend Steven Gault, chose her as the executor of his will. Besides dealing with his shut-down music club and mountain of bills, did he have a reason to lure her back to Lake Bittersweet…like facing the boy who shattered her heart?

Carly Gault. The girl who got away. The girl he gave away. The moment he sees her, Fire Chief Thomas Cooper is hurled back in time to the summer that changed his life. He made the choice to put his family first, but Thomas has never forgotten the passionate, loving girl with the smoky-green gaze. She’s more beautiful than ever—but since that summer, his family has expanded in a way Carly may never, ever understand.

As long-ago secrets come to light, passion reignites between Carly and Thomas. But will one last shocker make it all go up in smoke like the last summer bonfire?

Review – In Between by Andi Jackson

In Between; Love is Love #3
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 5, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Interracial/Forbidden/New Adult/MMF Romance

Author: Andi Jaxon

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

First, I’m trying to remember when a book cover has so appropriately fit a character, but Dylan is matched to a T on the front of In Between. I certainly know better than to judge a book by its cover, but I fell just a little more in love with him while keeping his angsty face front and center because one you meet him and all of his sassy, brokenness those moody eyes on the cover, well Dylan is going to break your heart and then stitch it all back together again.

All three characters are gloriously written, Andi really outdid herself with this book. Mary, Julian, and Dylan all have their own baggage in this MMF story. Alone they all could carry a plot, but mixed together their story has depth and emotional weight that truly pulls at every heartstring and turns the pages chapter after chapter.

I grew up in the “Free to Be You and Me” generation. The mantras of a person’s a person regardless of color or gender, or love one another regardless of what they look like is ingrained in me. I took those words to heart and met every new acquaintance as a friend until they proved otherwise. Yes, I’m an optimist, I’m one of those people that can strike up a conversation with anyone, so basically I’m Mary, just a little bit older. I saw myself in her character over and over again. Not with two hot men sadly…, but Mary is an eternal optimist, and she also gets two boyfriends- score for her-but it isn’t an easy peasy thing and certainly not something she sought out.

Mary doesn’t like to see injustice in the world and she certainly likes helping. I adored that, like her namesake, she was able to fall back on her strong faith foundation and remind others that Jesus wasn’t sitting upon a throne just looking down at those less than. He too was a man who walked upon the earth and spent most of his time with the beggars, thieves and those that had been shunned by society. Mary’s soul and kind spirit gravitated toward those who weren’t all shiny and I loved how she always jumped in to help someone out in need, especially Julian and Dylan. While she struggled at first with the prospect of loving two men, she also thought god wouldn’t give her love if it was bad. Again, I loved how she continually turned to the positive things of religion.

The love in this book covers a little bit of everything. We have the virgin Mary, the irony is not lost on her name. Dylan loves a buffet more or less. Love truly is love for him and he doesn’t succumb to labels. Julian who is straight, until he meets Dylan and well, Julian isn’t sure what label to define himself at this point, except he knows he likes both Mary and his crazy neighbor. The thruples discovery is wonderful and a part I always enjoy.

Dylan was definitely bruised and battered by a system that was broken. His father is the sheriff in town, but within his own home he was a child of domestic violence. He could be dark and mean, but instead Dylan is sassy and sarcastic….tending to irritate a lot of people, like his father and football players, but it made me laugh through most of his chapters. Like a lot of people who use humor during tense times, it was a deflection to getting close to him. Dylan was a master of hiding from his emotions. He was always up for a good time and he did care, in his own way, if something happened to Mary and Julian. He didn’t understand his new found attachment to them, but he wasn’t about to analyze it either. Again he hated emotions, but that beautiful broken boy was the glue between the three of them.

Julian is the silent strength with the biggest obstacles to overcome. He’s a boy who’s recently moved to a small town where he is the minority. Never in his life has he felt so singled out and judged for this color of his skin. Julian tries to keep his head down and just get through the day, but a feisty little cheerleader and his sarcastic neighbor keep ending up in his path and tearing down his walls. Julian comes from a loving extended family and of the three of them, has the best support, a stable life, along with a roof over his head. Mary and Dylan struggled with both and luckily were able to soak up a bit of Julian’s beautiful home life. It’s just the outside world that is cruel and harsh and could hurt all three of them if their secret ever got out.

Julian’s part of the story tugged at my heart and tore at me for different reasons. One, his family life stirred up memories of my youth and the warmth I received at my friends’ homes, those treasured moments when life was both easier and tougher because of my age. A time of nativity when life seemed simpler, but that was perhaps because I didn’t understand just how harsh the world could be.

Unfortunately, Julian was shoved head first in those harsh realities, facing bigotry and hate, which tore through me each and every time slurs were said. I know the world exists in this harsh reality, instead of loving their fellow man, which saddens me. I loved Mary and Dylan even more for loving Julian just for him. Nothing more, nothing less. The three of them had a lot to overcome, but between them, inside their bubble, they just see each other and not the social, religious, racial, or economic views that the world outside would try to tear them apart for.

In Between was wonderfully steamy and sassy, but also beautifully written. I know Andi put a lot of work into this book and it shows.

Synopsis:

I’m the preacher’s daughter.
Dylan is the punk son of the bigoted sheriff.
Julian the new kid in town everyone talks about in whispers and avoids like the plague.
Dylan and Julian shouldn’t want each other.
It’s dangerous.
This town won’t accept them and yet I run towards the fire because love deserves a chance.
It’s not just them that’s in danger this time.
They both want me too.
I crave them and all they can offer me.
But I can’t have them.
It’s wrong. Perverted. Immoral. And I’m a good church girl.
At least, that’s what everyone thinks…

Can we hide who we are from a town who’s against us or will we be burned by their hatred?

*This is Mary’s story and can be read as a stand alone but will be best enjoyed after reading Bully King. This is an interracial MMF story and will have triggering language and situations due to racism and homophobia. Please proceed with caution.

Blurb:
Phoenix Wilder is fighting.
For the girl he loves and the future he isn’t sure he deserves.
But he’ll do it for her.
His Birdie.
His anchor.
The only girl ever to see him for who he really is.
Harleigh Wren Maguire is trying.
For the boy she loves and the future she thought was stolen from her.
But she’ll do it for him.
Her protector.
Her heart.
The only guy to ever make her feel worth something.
But Harleigh and Nix will have to figure out what they want and what they’re willing to sacrifice before they can chase their dreams of a better life.
Because sometimes love isn’t enough.
And the promises they made could end up nothing more than bittersweet memories.

Read Kay’s Review: These Dead Promises

About the Author:
Author of over thirty mature young adult and new adult novels, LA COTTON is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.

Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find LA immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.
