Title: Down in Flames
Series: Hot in Chicago Rookies #2
Author: Kate Meader
Genre: Contemporary MM Romance
Release Date: December 6, 2022
BLURB
A steamy and emotional standalone MM firefighter-hockey player romance …
“I loved Jude and Hudson and their hard-won romance! Watching them fight their love, then fall in love was everything!” – #1 NYT Bestselling Lauren Blakely
It was supposed to be a random hookup.
At a crossroads, my life a hot mess, I swiped right on the guy with the washboard abs and the tree-trunk thighs. His handle was Holt (yeah, really) but as soon as he opened the door, I recognized him: Hudson Grey, the hottest prospect in pro-hockey and apparently, secretly playing for my team. Not mind-blowing enough? He needed someone to punch his V-card, and I was only too happy to volunteer as tribute . . .
Then he ghosted me when it got to be too much.
A year later, my life is back on track and I’m a candidate firefighter at legendary Engine 6. While I might be new to the Chicago Fire Department, I’m a veteran in the game of steamy hookups. My No. 1 rule? No newbies. Except now Hudson has been traded to my hometown team, the Chicago Rebels, and he’s out, proud, and ready to date. And he wants my help introducing him to the local gay scene.
My messy past means I’m the worst guy to be mentoring the shy, sexy jock. But neither can I stand by and watch while others touch the man who already feels like mine.
I might have been his first, but I’m about to learn that the new guy has even more to teach me about hunger, hope, and falling hard . . .
Includes: First times, hot firefighters, sexy hockey players, mini-golf shenanigans, meddling friends, and fighting like hell for the love of a lifetime.

What to expect: 

🏈A sweet and steamy injured quarterback

🎄Holiday-themed setting

😏Friend’s older brother

💔Unrequited love

👼 Surprise pregnancy 

BLURB

Publicly fighting with a man for an oversold airline seat—Embarrassing! 

Realizing he was the famous quarterback for the Atlanta Aarows—Awkward

Knowing he was your friend’s older brother and teenage crush but didn’t recognize

you—Humiliating. 

When I stormed out of the airport after throwing a temper tantrum, I never expected to cross paths with him again. All I wanted to do was put the night behind me and enjoy a strong martini. 

The last thing I expected was for him to waltz into the bar and offer me a night I couldn’t refuse. 

I had every opportunity to tell him who I was. Instead, I lied and followed my heart– okay, that was a lie too. It was pure lust and maybe a little revenge that had me following him out the door. 

Now, we’re flying back and forth between Atlanta and New York. And the more time we spend together, the harder I fall.

Until news of our relationship gets blasted all over the internet. 

I guess it’s true what they say, you can’t believe everything you read online, or can you? I’m not sure anymore.

Now I’m wondering if I should have left my heart on the sidelines where it belonged instead of trusting him to keep it safe, especially since the news of our relationship isn’t the only thing about to be exposed.

New Double Release – Corrupt Knight and Corrupt Princess by Tracy Lorraine

 Release Date: December 8

The night we met, she was just another one-night stand. 

We were never meant to see each other again, and my best friend certainly wasn’t supposed to go and fall in love with her best friend. 

 

Collateral damage… she’s already broken my biggest rule when we hooked up for a second, third, fourth, and maybe a few more times. 

 

She’s everywhere I turn. I can’t escape her or the things she makes me feel. 

 

Thanks to my best friend wanting to do anything to make his girl happy, she’s the newest teacher at Knight’s Ridge College. 

 

If I needed to stay away before, now I have no choice. Not only is she an obsession I don’t need… she’s forbidden. 

 

But I’ve never been as good at following the rules, so much as breaking them. I need to be careful before she gets too close to break me. 

 

The consuming darkness inside threatens to take over following my father’s death, and I find myself craving her light even more than ever. 

 

The only problem is, I don’t want her to rescue me. I want to drag her down… corrupt her. 

We’re a match made in hell that first night we met, so why stop now when playing with fire is so much fun.

Corrupt Princess 

Corrupt Princess by Tracy Lorraine

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next instalment of her forbidden dark mafia, high school bully romance story set in the Knight’s Ridge Empire world.
I learned from a very young age that the only person I could count on was myself.
For years I’ve been content with meaningless one-night stands and zero promises for tomorrow.
I had a good thing going, until he crashed his way into my life… and heart, and wrecked them both.
Nico Cirillo.
The bad boy mafia prince and the one man who’s ever left me craving more. Not that I’ll admit that.
And now, he’s not only a mistake I’ve made time and time again, he’s everywhere I turn. 
Taunting me.
Tempting me. 
Doing everything in his power to screw up my life, tarnish my reputation, and corrupt the only dream I’ve ever had.
But while I’m pushing as hard as I can to keep him away, his reckless decisions and hot-headed behaviour have forced him to reconsider.
His U-turn is enough to give me whiplash, but it’s nowhere near enough for me to lower my walls and let him in.
To give him a chance he doesn’t deserve.
It’s going to take more than a bit of grovelling after all the ways he’s hurt me, even if it is on his knees.

Review – Villain Era by Luna Pierce

Villain Era; Sinners and Angels #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: December 9, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Suspense/Dark/Mafia/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Luna Pierce

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Villain Era happens about six months after Untamed Vixen and is a continuation of June, Dom, Co, and Magnus, along with now Simon who has become her bodyguard’s story.

Dom is now leading the west coast mafia and desperately trying to get a handle on his new position, but losing his grasp on the one person he claimed to love, June. Co and Magnus are by his side and watching it all happen, following Dom’s lead, they are all struggling and eventually something has to give. That something again, being June.

With Simon relegated to June’s side, they get close and build a friendship. From the very beginning Simon makes his attraction to her clear, but he never crosses a boundary. June already has three men in her life, but they seem to have forgotten about her, however she hasn’t forgotten about them. It makes things difficult when Simon is with her everyday all day…something has to give, will it be the loves of her life?

Magnus, I will say, is the one who is torn the most between his old friendship, his new love, and what he sees as a new friendship in Simon. He’s been my favorite from the first book and continues to be in this one. He’s a huge empath, which is why he continually feels everyone’s strain, but sometimes I wish he did push just a bit harder.

Villain Era has its ups and downs, it’s exciting and then slows down. I suppose what I mean is, with a mafia book, I was looking for more adrenaline pumping moments vs. chapters of introspection. This is book two for this group and I would have preferred more action and less yada, yada, yada on their past regrets.

Villain Era really shouldn’t be read as a standalone, it complements Untamed Vixen and I found it helpful to read them back to back, but that is my own personal experience. I give this a 4.5 rating overall.

Synopsis:
He was once our enemy, but now he’s my bodyguard.

After our rival gives up the throne as my dying wish, my men trust him to keep a close watch on me and protect me from any danger that may come my way.

He keeps me safe, somehow understanding the darkness that lurks inside of me. He knows it cannot be caged, and he allows me the ability to set it free when we’re alone.

The things I’ve done don’t hold a candle to the things I will do.

I have everything I could possibly want…three sexy, attentive, mafia boyfriends. All of us are under one roof, and they spoil and provide for my every desire.

But why do I have a nagging feeling that something—or someone—is still missing from my life?

Am I selfish for being insatiable when I already have more than most?

When our true enemies, the ones we thought we eliminated, come back to finish what they started, I worry I may not be able to escape death this time around.

I end up sharing a secret with the one man I shouldn’t let in—a secret that holds the power to ruin us all.

I may have crossed a line, but whether my men like it or not, this vixen is entering her villain era.

Villain Era is the sequel to Untamed Vixen. Untamed Vixen should be read first. Meant for mature audiences.
