Review – A Wild Heart by Amie Knight

A Wild Heart (Heart #4)

A Wild Heart; Heart #4
(standalone within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: October 27, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Hero/Second Chance at Love Romance

Author: Amie Knight

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars


The beginning of this book I was full on in tears, commiserating in that deep well of grief, but then…oh my…oh my, oh my, my kindle just about light on fire and when the pages weren’t smoking, I was laughing out loud. This book was a complete rollercoaster and the ride was everything!!!

Weston and Emily are total fire in the sheets every single time they come together, but as much as they try to keep their one night stand to just that; no names, no connection and definitely no seeing one another again…their booty call keeps redialing. It’s also amazing how those calls also lead to things like caring and meeting family and dinners and…and…and. No matter what either one of them do, because it’s not one sided, it truly is both of them, (and I honestly cannot remember a story where both characters are grumpy about what’s happening, but it makes for comedic situations and some very hot steamy moments) but a one night stand is not supposed to turn into more, until it does.

Even though both Weston and Emily are somewhat grumpy, or sad, it’s sort of a fine line..these two are soooo good for the other, but they are so wrapped up in their sadness and grief it’s impossible to see the sunshine when they’ve both been living in the dark.

If there was ever a heart opening story that made me laugh and cry, but also full of steam and passion it’s this book. It was so good.

I lost a huge piece of myself the day my husband was killed in action.
In the months that followed, I felt like my grief would swallow me whole.
My only solace was my daughter, whose bright light guided me through the darkest of times.

I never wanted to meet someone else.
I vowed to never fall in love again, especially with a marine.

It was supposed to be no strings attached and for a while it was.
But Weston Reeves’s grumpy soul called to my tortured one.
Maybe it was the midnight rides on his bike or the way that only I could make him smile.
He lit me up, set my body afire, and for the first time in five years made me feel alive.

Our relationship was probably the worst gamble I’d ever taken.
But my stupid, wild heart needed him, even if our love was destined to burn me to ashes.

Review – Snowed in with the Player by Rebecca Jenshak

Snowed In with the Player (Holiday with the Players, #1)

Snowed In With the Player; Holiday With the Players #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: October 25, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Sports/Holiday Romance

Author: Rebecca Jenshak

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



A sweetly adorable holiday novella. Jenshak brought all the nostalgia of a family Christmas and mixed it up with college students escaping for a few days during their winter break. This is perfect to pick up and read during an afternoon sitting by the fire with a hot cup of cocoa.

For Holly the holidays mean tradition; baking cookies, singing carols, putting up a tree, spending time with family, etc…However, this year her parents are on vacation right up until the actual holiday so it’s just her and her siblings and they’ve decided to spend time at the family cabin until it’s time to head home. While Holly still wants to do all of the same traditions at the cabin, when she arrives with her twin sister, Stella, she did not expect her brother to be there with most of the football team, especially with Teddy her crush. This changes things, just a bit…but some changes make the magical holiday just a bit sweeter, especially when they get snowed in.

Teddy and Holly are super sweet together. Snowed in with the Player is loving and full of holiday cheer, it’s like reading a Hallmark movie. The story is told completely from Holly’s POV and it’s a quick read that is filled with all the sugar cookie warmth and hot cocoa deliciousness. There’s also a bit of a sneaky peek into Stella’s love story and I can’t wait to see how that is going to play out in the next novella.

It was supposed to be a weekend of holiday cheer.
Just me and my twin sister, watching Christmas movies and baking cookies.
My brother was absolutely not supposed to show up with half the football team.
Including Teddy. My brother’s best friend and my secret crush.
I’m the shy sister. The one with her nose stuck in a book and quoting every word of Elf, not the one getting attention from guys like Teddy.
He’s cool and smart and so handsome I could die.
The only thing that could make things worse is if I got snowed in with him.

By Tia Louise

Can you love what you can’t touch?

No touching.

It’s the only rule in this business, and trust me, with my money and power, “hands off” is not a problem.

I don’t need the women I employ to satisfy my needs…

Until her.

She’s different than the other girls, innocent, intoxicating, impossibly seductive.

I can’t take my eyes off her, and it’s not long before hot looks turn to hotter touches.

I’m the boss, after all, I call the shots.

And nothing’s more fun than breaking the rules.

I came to this country to pursue my dream… but it was a lie, a scam that quickly fell apart.

Desperate, I took the only job I could with no work visa.

They promised no one would know.

They promised no touching.

Until I saw him.

Dark scruff shading an arrogant grin, lean muscles stretching expensive fabric, eyes like twilight sending electricity from my stomach to my toes.

He’s my boss, but the way he watches makes me do dirty things.

For his eyes only, I’m uninhibited, experienced, a seductress.

Only, our game turns dangerous when a watcher threatens everything, and my hands-on hero vows to save me.

About What Lurks Within

The men I loved in secret called me many things.

Brat. Sunshine. Baby Girl. Little Red.

That last one? Yeah, it had nothing to do with my favorite scarlet hoodie. More like the fact that I was supposed to be off limits—a reminder that they weren’t supposed to be touching me behind closed doors. Not only were they nearly twice my age and involved in my father’s business, but I was promised to another Alpha.

Not that it matters now, because they’re gone. For three years, I’ve been on my own, fighting off the advances of an Alpha who won’t take no for an answer while the whispers around town continue to find their way to my ears. Some say the guys got into a fight with my father and were run out of town. Others believe they’re among the reverts—a growing group of packs who have regressed, letting their feral instincts have control once again—but I don’t think any of that is true.

I think they ran away…from me.

Now, something is out there, watching me. Everywhere I go, I sense their eyes. Is it the pack that wants to make me theirs at all costs, or could it be the cowards that told me they loved me then left me to fend for myself?

Either way, I’m not afraid. The monsters lurking out there have nothing on what lurks within.

What Lurks Within is a standalone Omegaverse to Monsters Love Story. You can expect one bratty Omega who loves more than one monstrous Alpha – and sure, some of the Omegaverse sweetness thrown in too. This book includes MMFMM. All will live HEA.

About Keeper

Kingston Wells

I like to party. To have a good time.

Life’s too short not to. I learned that when I lost my grandpa.

He told me to have fun while I can, and I intend to.

Although sometimes when you’re having a good time, you forget others may see you as irresponsible. And sometimes you screw up.

I’ve definitely screwed up a time or two.

But I’m still determined to have fun. And along the way, I’m hoping I’ll convince my best friend, Camden, to do the same.

He’s too serious. Too focused. Too busy taking care of everyone to just relax.

And that’s where I come in.

Camden Prescott

I may only be eighteen and a senior, but I have too much on my plate to be a kid.

Too many people depend on me, but I can handle it.

I have to handle it. My mom needs my help. My little sister needs me. And Kingston, my best friend in the world—yeah, he definitely needs me.

Because while he’s busy having fun, I’m busy cleaning up his messes along with everyone else’s.

It’s not all bad though. He’s there to make sure I occasionally have fun, and I’m there for him when he needs to take life seriously.

Because that’s what I am . . .

The Keeper.
