Blog Tour – Devil of Dublin by B.B. Easton

Devil of Dublin by BB Easton is now live! 

From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of 44 Chapters About 4 Men (inspiration for the Netflix Original series Sex/Life) comes a dark mafia romance steeped in Irish folklore.

I can’t remember anymore if my grandfather’s eyes were blue or green, but I’ll never forget the way they wrinkled at the corners when he laughed at one of his own jokes. Or the way they sparkled with mischief when he told me tales about the magical creatures that dwelled in the forest behind his humble Irish sheep farm–shy fairies who liked to eat tea biscuits, cruel witches who liked to eat children, a moody lake spirit with a taste for expensive gifts.

As a child, I believed every fantastical word. But when he warned me about the mute boy who also lurked in those woods, the one the priest had declared to be the spawn of Satan himself, I refused to listen. Kellen wasn’t evil. He was kind, and beautiful, and special, and hurting. He was my friend. And with every summer I spent stolen away with him in those enchanted woods, he grew to become so much more.

But when I return to Glenshire as an adult, grieving and engaged to someone else, all those legends quickly morph into nightmares.

My grandfather had been right about everything, especially the boy.

If only I had listened.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Devil of Dublin is intended for mature audiences who enjoy extremely dark subject matter, high emotional intensity, explicit adult content, graphic violence, heart-pounding suspense, fairy-tale worthy love, and gorgeous Irish scenery. If that sounds like you, then welcome to Glenshire! If you’re unsure, please review the comprehensive content warning on my website before reading.

Read Kay’s Review: Devil of Dublin

Meet BB Easton

Wall Street Journal bestselling author BB Easton lives in the suburbs of Atlanta with her long-suffering husband, Ken, and two adorable children. A few years ago, she quit her job as a school psychologist to write books about her punk rock past and deviant sexual history full-time. Ken wasn’t super excited about that, but now that he’s appeared in three of her books and inspired a TV show character, he’s incredibly supportive.

BB’s debut memoir, 44 Chapters About 4 Men, went on to inspire the Netflix original series, Sex/Life, which was viewed by 67 million households worldwide within the first month making it the 3rd most-watched Netflix original series of all time. Because she had so much fun writing 44 Chapters, BB went on to publish four more wickedly funny, shockingly steamy, and heartwarmingly autobiographical books, one for each man in her memoir—Skin, Speed, Star, and Suit.

The Rain Trilogy—a dark, immersive, end-of-the-world romance—was BB’s first work of fiction. Or at least, that’s what she thought when she wrote it in 2019. Then, 2020 hit, and all of her dystopian plot points started coming true. Hoping to fix everything, BB returned with a fun, feel-good romantic comedy called Group Therapy, but alas, the world is still on fire … and so is BB’s desire to write intense, us-against-the-world romances. Her next release, Devil of Dublin, is a dark Irish mafia romance steeped in folklore and family secrets.

Blog Tour – Tysin by Brooke O’Brien

Release Date: September 23
Tysin Briggs is a player.
He’s cocky, selfish, and sexy as sin. I’ve heard the rumors, and it’s no secret, he’s just as talented in the bedroom as he is on the guitar.
As the lead guitarist for A Rebels Havoc, and my brother’s best friend, Tysin has heartbreak written all over him. We were asking for trouble sneaking around behind my brother’s back. It still didn’t stop me from spending the summer with him or from falling in love with him.
Two years have passed since he destroyed my heart, crushing it into a million pieces. A lot has changed since then, including the ring on my finger. When my brother asks for my help filling in as the manager of their sold-out tour, it’s an opportunity I can’t refuse.
I should’ve known the past wouldn’t stay in the past.
But what I didn’t count on was how hard it would be to resist him.

Amara is my dark obsession. She was promised to me in a deal she knows nothing about.

Four years ago, I sent her away to protect her from the life I live as the son of a crime lord.

Now her brother—my best friend—is dead, and though I wasn’t there for him in the end, I intend to look after his little sister.

Review – Dirty Crazy Bad by Siobhan Davis

Dirty Crazy Bad; Dirty Crazy Bad #1
(#1 within a duet)

Publication Date: September 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark/Reverse Harem/Secret Society Romance

Author: Siobhan Davis

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Steamy, steamy, oh so steamy, and all the dark and dirty, twisted up plottiness in this amazing new secret society series.

Siobhan has blown my mind with this new Luminary world. Plus, she didn’t just create a dark and depraved world, but it’s interconnected, in these little ways, to several of my other favorite worlds she’s created that made my heart burst with joy every time they were mentioned.

Ashley is the center of three men’s world, but those three men do not all get along and they all have their own secrets. The secrets throughout the book not only tear relationships apart, but they also bring others together. It’s great and tore me apart all at once!!

While this is a why choose book, it’s not quite cut and dry. What am I talking about? This isn’t a typical reverse harem where all of Ashley’s love interests have been friends for years or have grown up together. Her particular situation is very unique and I totally loved their dynamic which not only spiced up the tension, but also made for lots of a new plot twists. I switched on which guy I was rooting for, at which point in the story, multiple times. I LOVE when Siobhan does that to me.

This book is full of so much and yet it’s only the first part of the story. I’m dying over the cliffhanger and can’t wait to return to find out how it all ends!!

Synopsis:
A new dark college reverse harem romance from the USA Today & WSJ bestselling author of The Sainthood Series.

In the secret society of The Luminaries, no sin will go unpunished…

Sleeping with my boyfriend’s best friend, behind his girlfriend’s back, probably wasn’t my smartest idea.

But Jase is mine, and it’s about time Julia knew it.

Attending Lowell University was supposed to be a fresh start. A chance to end all the sneaking around and make our relationship official.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Julia is digging her claws into Jase.

My boyfriend, Chad, is getting in deeper with a local gang.

And my loathsome new stepbrother, Ares, has just moved in.

Ares despises Chad and Jase, and the feeling is mutual. As their rivalry escalates, Ares seems determined to use me as a pawn, and I’m trapped in the middle. It doesn’t help that he’s hot AF, knows exactly how to push my buttons, and my body hasn’t gotten the memo he’s off-limits.

I wish that were the least of my worries.

Pride. Wrath. Lust. Envy. Greed. Gluttony. Sloth.

My life turns upside down the moment the dark secret society of The Luminaries is revealed to me.

Everything I thought I knew was a lie.

Now, I have lost all control over my future, and a heart-breaking new reality emerges.

One where lovers become enemies, enemies become allies, and corrupting sinners to sin is my only way to survive.
***
This is a 138k-word full-length novel and book one of two. It cannot be read as a stand-alone, and it ends with a cliff-hanger. This book contains mature content including cursing and graphic scenes with some dub-con/non-con. This is a dark romance, and it may contain triggers for some readers.

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.

Review – A Stolen Suit by Angela Casella

A Stolen Suit; Fairy Godmother Agency #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: September 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy

Author: Angela Casella

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
It’s reading slapstick comedy!! The Fairy Godmother Agency strikes again and it’s hilarious!!

When Nicole and Damien decide to help out Grace Donnelly with her problem, her ex who is now living in her town and basically haunting her after six years, they take her case to…well….cause him some strife…that’s the best way to put it. It’s basically hilarious and best read to find out exactly everything that happens to Enoch, but is it really fair once you know his story? Sure, every ex needs just a little strife in their life.

Grace has been working as a PA for a romance author for the past six years, instead of doing, one…working in business, which is what her degree is in or two…being a published author herself. Call Enoch surprised when he rolls into town and talks to her again, but especially when she won’t talk to him. It’s been six years and he did sort of take her job, but she wanted to write books, so call him perplexed…really, really perplexed.

Enoch Laskin is in town working with Grace’s employer, helping her rebrand her image, but he also his his own reasons for taking the job and they might all revolve around his old flame. Poor Enoch and his all the karma coming his way….he’s sweet and extremely good natured, with a cremudgend father and adorable, can I still say adorable when they are sixteen, nephew living with him.

Actually all of the secondary characters are fantastic and bring the comedy to life. A Stolen Suit is fun, light, and just all around will bring a smile to your face. Pick up this second chance, laugh out loud romance for pure reading enjoyment.

Synopsis:
I hate him…but I also want to touch his abs. Is that normal?

Grace

My boss, the famous romance novelist, always said she’d open doors for me when I finished writing my first book. Only I have…and she hasn’t. Worse, I just met her new brand manager, and I know him.

Enoch “the Suit” Laskin made my life miserable in business school, right up until he seduced me. Then he took an internship with Parker Brand Management, working for my father, the other man I hate.

Enoch is a traitor. He’s a jerk. It’s torture to be around him.

Lucky for me, the Fairy Godmother Agency, a husband and wife P.I. team who help women in dire straits, have offered to make me their next client.

The Suit won’t know what hit him.

Enoch
I sold my soul to John Parker, and I still haven’t gotten it back.

Grace thinks I betrayed her. She’s not wrong, but she doesn’t know the full story.

Through a few twists of fate, I’ve become the caretaker of my grumpy father and teenage nephew. I’m determined to prove myself to Grace, and to them, but everything keeps going disastrously wrong.

If I were a more superstitious man, I’d think someone was out to get me.

Review – Off Sides by Ella Kade

Book Cover

Off Sides; Willow Bay #4
(#4 within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: September 26, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Second Chance/Forbidden/Sports Romance

Author: Ella Kade

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Light on drama, but not light on heavy topics. This is a second chance, forbidden romance that discusses mental health in a positive way.

Danica transfers to Willow Bay, where her brother attends school, in her senior year. It may not seem like the smartest move, especially when she’s been working her entire school career towards making the Olympics, but for her mental and physical health, it was the move she needed to make to save her life. She may be farther away from her dreams, but at least she’ll live another day to make some new ones. Her friends and family are now around her and support her every day to make sure she’s mentally and physically stronger to make it through her senior year, she just never expected to run into her ex-boyfriend at her new school. The last thing she knew about him, he was playing soccer in Spain…now he’s her asst. coach here. What is happening?

Declan never saw his life coaching girls soccer, especially when his own soccer career had barely started before he was majorly injured. Except, here he is…having moved back in with his sister, in Willow Bay, with one skill under his belt. When he didn’t think his life could get anymore out of control, Daniela walks onto the field. He basically thinks he’s dreaming. She’s supposed to be far away, living her best life and making her own dreams come true. Instead she’s thin, glaring at him, and on his soccer team. What is happening?

Both Daniela and Declan have had their lives flipped upside down by life and what I loved about this story is that they both had a strong family base to help them get back on their feet. That no matter what happened between them their mental health, along with their physical health, always came first. I appreciated a story that brought a strong foundation of how to keep this healthy first and a forbidden relationship between them second. Well done. A 4.5 read over all.

Synopsis:

Danica
I never thought I’d have to start over.

Let alone my senior year in college, but without my twin brother and my best friend, my life fell apart.

Now I was finally healthy and ready to meet my new team. That was until I saw who the assistant coach was. What was my ex, pro soccer playing boyfriend doing in Willow Springs? You know what? I didn’t care. He dropped me like yesterday’s garbage after he told me nothing would break us apart. Not even an ocean.

He was a liar.


Declan
When I took the job as assistant coach, I never thought I’d see Danica Francisco. I knew her brother lived here, but not her. Why wasn’t she three hours away?

I was finally getting my life back on track after what I thought was the worst time of my life. Except now, I was thinking taking this job was the worst decision I’d ever made with the exception to cut Danica out of my life.

Too bad she looks like she wanted to kill me and put my body through a wood chipper every time she looked at me.

How was I going to survive being so close to her and yet being so far away?

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.

Amara is my dark obsession. She was promised to me in a deal she knows nothing about.

Four years ago, I sent her away to protect her from the life I live as the son of a crime lord.

Now her brother—my best friend—is dead, and though I wasn’t there for him in the end, I intend to look after his little sister.

I should stay in the shadows, let her live the life her brother wanted for her, but one look at her and I know I’m the only one who can save her…but I’ll have to break her first.

Review – The Fling by Jennifer Bernard

The Fling; Lake Bittersweet #2
(#2 within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: September 27, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Grumpy-Sunshine/Opposites Attract/Second Chance/Small Town Romance

Author: Jennifer Bernard

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Sweet, sweet, sweet with just a dash of bittersweet made The Fling a perfect reading romance.

The Fling is filled with super sweet moments, lots of giggle out loud times, reflective moments, steamy occasions, steamy times that also included laughing-which are my absolute favorite things to read or participate in…okay TMI…but seriously, when you meet the person you can laugh with in ALL occasions, that is truly your person.

The Fling included every possible element I love to read in a swoonworthy book and I couldn’t put it down for even one moment!! This book is a fated destiny, grumpy-sunshine, opposites attract kind of romance and I loved every page.

Conor Gault is a total workaholic and has worked hard to be the total opposite of his rockstar father who was a rebel in just about every aspect of his life. Conor spent the majority of his formative years with his socialite mother and she worked hard to keep him on the straight and narrow, but when Emmaline meets Conor in Hawaii, not while he’s on vacation mind you, his life is irreversibly changed when he spends the afternoon in her presence.

Now remember how I mentioned that Emmaline and Conor are destined…well what a small world that these two would meet in Hawaii when she’s from the small town of Lake Bittersweet and Conor is sort of from there as well, at least his famous father is.

It’s just a fling…that’s what they both agreed to…no identifiers, nothing that would give them away, just a lovely afternoon spent between two strangers. Fast forward six months and Conor is back in Lake Bittersweet settling his father’s affairs and who happens to appear like a beautiful Hawaiian dream?  The woman who hasn’t left his thoughts.

Conor and Emmaline are absolutely delightful together. This entire story, with their family and friends made my heart sing, especially how Jennifer wrote about Henry. My heart overflowed so many times when he was on the page.

The Fling is fun, but it’s also a great story of growth and change, like if you are a workaholic who might need to take a breath.

Synopsis:
It all started that summer in Lake Bittersweet…

Emmaline Curtis has never been outside the state of Minnesota before, so winning an all-expenses-paid trip to Hawaii is a dream. Back home, working the family farm and caring for her brother means precious little free time. So when she meets an intriguing hottie at the resort, she’s ready for anything. No last names. No personal details. Just two willing strangers enjoying each other in paradise; then Emmaline can go home with good memories and no chance of awkward future run-ins with Conor.

Conor Gault’s business trip turned sensual excursion is cut short by devastating news—his rock star father has unexpectedly passed. Suddenly he’s heading to a town he’s avoided for seventeen years. Lake Bittersweet, Minnesota. The place where one long-ago disastrous night changed the course of his life. The last person he expects to run into is Emmaline, the quirky knockout who’s been living rent-free in his head ever since Hawaii…and who just happens to be a local.

Before long, their sizzling attraction heats up again. Their worlds couldn’t be more different—he’s a wealthy financial whiz, she’s a farmgirl. But in a startling twist of fate, Conor and Emmaline discover their pasts are linked in ways they never imagined. Ways that may ensure their fiery affair will never be more than a temporary fling.

Review – Silent Chaos by Nikki Ash

Silent Chaos; Love and Lyrics #2
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: September 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Hate to Lovers/New Adult/Second Chance/Rock and Roll Romance

Author: Nikki Ash

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Silent Chaos is a hard fought road to finally reach a place of forgiveness, trust, peace and love.

We begin the story six years ago and get a really good look inside at the beginning relationship of Braxton and Kaylee. How they fell in love and all those new beginning butterflies, first dates, and first moments that shaped their relationship. They had such a strong foundation, a lasting kind of love, I really did wonder if I was reading the wrong couple because I knew the end was coming and that everything was going to fall apart. I was holding my breath for that devastating moment because Nikki…darn it!! I hated to see it all shatter. The really high high made for the perfect rebuilding that this couple needed to fix.

Fast forward six years and Raging Chaos, the band formed with Braxton and his best friends, is famous and on tour and currently in need of a PR manager. While the rift between Braxton and Kaylee is huge, she went to school for this very thing and she could really use the job. While Kaylee’s not thrilled to be on tour with her ex just as much as he is, being professional is her top priority. Braxton just makes her job a little harder than it should be.

Their hate to passion back to love road is not an easy or straight line. It’s hard and hurtful and lots of tears between them as these two have quite a few bumps on their road and demons to face before any type of HEA can occur. It tests them to the point of wondering if they should pursue any kind of relationship, even friendship, once the tour is finished.

The close friendship with the band is special and I love to see how they are a found family, always there for one another, which also includes the Blackwood parents. It’s all that love among their friends and their family that truly shines and holds everyone together, book after book and what I love returning to.

Synopsis:
Braxton

Our senior year, I promised my girl forever.

Forever, as it turned out, wasn’t enough. She told me so in her actions. When she took a match to my life, burning it to ash.

I headed to LA with my band—Raging Chaos—like we always planned, while Kaylee went to college, taking my damaged heart with her.

This was where our story was supposed to end.

Only six years later, our lives collide again.

Kaylee is the only thing I ever loved more than music, and I wish I could hate her for it, but the line between love and hate is thin, and often straddled.

And the thing about collisions? They result in deadly debris.

Kaylee

When you love someone, you let them go. But what I did was so much worse.

Because instead of pushing him away, I shoved Braxton straight over the edge.

I’ve spent the past several years avoiding him, trying to make things right.

When my reputation has been dragged through the mud, and I’m given the opportunity to clean it up, I have no choice but to cross paths with him again.

Being around Braxton is a harsh reminder of the way I lit his life up in flames, but I’m not sure he knows I’ve been burned, too.

If suffering in silence is the cost, I’ll pay the price to make things right.

I just hope our history won’t play on repeat and he’ll see me as more than the stupid girl with the lit match.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Like real life, the characters are far from perfect, make morally gray decisions, and deal with subjects that may be sensitive for some readers. If you are looking for a safe romance, this series is not for you. Trigger warnings (which contain spoilers) can be found on my website.

Blog Tour – Vile Boys by AJ Merlin

Release Date: September 18

Winter Grove University is the dream school for anyone who wants to get somewhere in life, no matter if you’re an alpha, beta, or even an omega.

It’s almost impossible to get in. So when I beat the odds, I know it’ll be life changing.

I just don’t expect death on campus during orientation, or a warning to stay in my lane if I want to get through the next four years successfully.

Not that I’m worried, or anything.

That is, until the three most influential boys of Winter Grove decide to dedicate the semester to making my life a living hell for reasons that probably aren’t my fault.

Foster, Dorian, and August know how to hold a grudge. And they’re not willing to let me forget any slight I may have committed against them. Now, with three boys making my life hell and bodies piling up around campus, I have to wonder if maybe I should stop worrying about my grades and instead focus on the two alphas and a beta who can’t seem to leave me alone or the killer who might be closer than we thought.

Vile Boys is the first book in the Knot Their Toy duet and includes omegaverse, M/M, poly, and bullying.

Review – Tysin by Brooke O’Brien

Tysin; A Rebels Havoc #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: September 24, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Brother’s Best Friend/Second Chance/Rock and Roll Romance

Author: Brooke O’Brien

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Tysin is a heartbreaking, second chance story with a lot of ups and downs.

Tysin and Kyla have a lot of history, aside from just their brief summer fling. They grew up together and Kyla’s brother is one of Tysin’s best friends. These kind of forbidden tropes are always heart-pounding.

When the Rebels Havoc need a tour manager, last minute, Madden-the drummer-suggests his sister, Kyla, for the job. Even though she knows it will test her limits, being close to the one man who broke her heart, she takes it. She’s now engaged to a perfect man and her best friend will be on board since she’s dating the lead singer, Brix. Everything should be fine. No problem at all. Cool.

Tysin is anything but cool having a happily engaged Kyla living on his tour bus. He lashes out, treats her horribly, and does everything he can to make her life miserable, but that’s because he’s been miserable since he let her go two years ago. It’s not really her fault, he’s damaged and wouldn’t be good for her, but he doesn’t like seeing her happy with someone else either. He just can’t seem to help himself when it comes to Kyla.

Tysin’s story is full of heartbreak and reconnection and I enjoyed how Brooke covered several sensitive topics.  It may have taken a while for this book to be published, but it was worth waiting for the perfect story.

Synopsis:

USA Today Bestselling author Brooke O’Brien takes you on tour with A Rebels Havoc in this close proximity, brother’s best friend rock star romance. Grab your copy at the discounted pre-sale price!

Tysin Briggs is a player.

He’s cocky, selfish, and sexy as sin. I’ve heard the rumors, and it’s no secret, he’s just as talented in the bedroom as he is on the guitar.

As the lead guitarist for A Rebels Havoc, and my brother’s best friend, Tysin has heartbreak written all over him. We were asking for trouble sneaking around behind my brother’s back. It still didn’t stop me from spending the summer with him or from falling in love with him.

Two years have passed since he destroyed my heart, crushing it into a million pieces. A lot has changed since then, including the ring on my finger. When my brother asks for my help filling in as the manager of their sold-out tour, it’s an opportunity I can’t refuse.

I should’ve known the past wouldn’t stay in the past.

But what I didn’t count on was how hard it would be to resist him.

Author’s Note: Tysin is a standalone and can be read without reading any other books in the A Rebels Havoc series. If you prefer to read in order, start with Brix as the stories do interconnect.

*Please be aware, this book does contain subjects that may be sensitive for some readers, including pregnancy loss and cheating. If you’re looking for a safe story, this book is not for you.

Vile Boys; Knot Their Toy #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: September 19, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Omegaverse/Reverse Harem/Bully Romance

Author: AJ Merlin

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This is unlike other omegaverse books I’ve read before. These alphas, betas, and omegas aren’t completely overrun by their baser instincts. Instead, their senses are more like sizzling under their skin instead of a constantly raging inferno, if that makes sense.

The entire book is told from Mercy Noble’s POV. This is her first year attending Winter Grove University and she’s one of the very few students there on scholarship. While she gets some snide comments about it, Mercy has a great outlook and instead reverses a lot of bad behavior directed to her because she’s super smart and earned her spot at a top rated university. She also has a hearing impairment, which she wears aids for, but instead of letting it get to her she tackles every challenge head on. She’s an amazing lead character, especially when she begins to get bullied by three boys and she doesn’t back down.

Dorian, August & Foster are their own pack, but when Mercy makes a mistake they don’t easily forgive, nor do they her life any easier for it. The buildup to what will happen between them kept the pages turning and how they would torment her until things got heated.

Because this wasn’t like other omegaverse books I’ve read with the normal base instincts that would drive alphas and omegas crazy, it made this plot completely unique in reading. I’m highly curious where these characters will go in another book, because again I’m completely intrigued.

Synopsis:
Winter Grove University is the dream school for anyone who wants to get somewhere in life, no matter if you’re an alpha, beta, or even an omega.

Review – Irresistible Trouble by Pippa Grant

Irresistible Trouble; Copper Valley Fireballs #4
(#4 within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: September 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy/Sports/Second Chance/Rock and Roll Romance

Author: Pippa Grant

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
#TeamWoorperly and do you know what makes that ship name even cuter? Cooper Rock himself is the one who coined it. All the heart emoji’s…drop dead in all the cuteness…Cooper Rock is one ooooey, gooey man ball of falling in love.

YES!! Cooper Rock is finally here!! He’s been evading us with only cameos and fun loving easter eggs, but it’s finally time and his story is perfectly perfect for the rock god of baseball.

Cooper Rock is famous, or is it infamous when your team has been the loseiest team in baseball history? Regardless of how bad the Copper Valley Fireballs have been, Cooper Rock hasn’t given up on them. He’s probably one of the happiest-go-lucky guys you will ever run across and he always looks on the bright side. But, when he runs across Waverly Sweet, the only one who ever made him think long term…well, let’s just say that Cooper’s happy-go-lucky gets a little twisted in the jockstrap.

Waverly Sweet is a huge, international pop star, which unfortunately means her face is super recognizable and keeping up that image is a full time job. When she runs back into Cooper Rock, a man she’s never forgotten and with the incredible stress she’s under…Cooper Rock is the one man who could give her a HUGE stress reliever…except, the ramifications of Waverly Sweet sleeping with a notorious serial dater like Cooper…she’s not sure her image could withstand it, but she’s also not sure her emotions can stand walking away either.

Cooper and Waverly are adorably sweet falling for one another as they work around their insanely crazy schedules. This story also includes members of Coopers baseball team that are fun and crazy and Waverly’s team that are just a little crazy. The absolute best part is Coop’s family which is a whole side of crazy family love, that I would totally love to be a part of, especially with the giant heart of unconditional love that they all have for one another. Lastly, the text convo’s, no matter if it’s with family, or #TeamWoorperly, or just between friends, they were all insanely hilarious.

Basically this book is fun no matter how you slice it, especially while I got to enjoy two people who desperately deserve to fall in love with one another.

Synopsis:

I, Cooper Rock, baseball god, worshipper of women, hometown hero, beloved son and brother, and owner of a well-deserved ego, have always reached for the stars. Usually in baseball.

In love? Nah. When you’ve played the field as much as I have and haven’t been bit by the bug, you’re immune.

Or so I thought until she walked back into my life.

Waverly Sweet. Pop music sensation. Universally beloved for good reason. She’s freaking awesome. Kind. Funny. Talented. Sexy as hell. Real. And still completely out of my league.

But I have been hit by the Waverly Sweet tour bus of love, tumbled head over heels, and come up in a field of Waverly-scented roses. This is it. She’s my one and only, and this time, I won’t screw it up.

I’m cleaning up my reputation. I’m ignoring the doubters. I’m channeling everything I have into proving to her that I can be the man she deserves.

No matter what else I have to sacrifice for love.

Including baseball.

Irresistible Trouble is a hilarious home run of a romcom about a baseball player whose ego is catching up to him, a pop star who’s a bit of a hot mess when the cameras aren’t looking (and sometimes when they are), and the kind of family and teammates that everyone deserves… in small doses. While this laugh-out-loud romance stands alone with a sweet-swoony HEA, you won’t go wrong if you dive into the entire Fireballs series, starting with Jock Blocked, first. And for more Cooper Rock cameos, check out Master Baker (a standalone featuring Cooper’s brother) and the Bro Code series.

Review – Knot a Chance by Sinclair Kelly

Knot A Chance; Knot Yours #2
(#2 within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: September 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Omegaverse/Fantasy/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Sinclair Kelly

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Knotty good times, along with lots of crying over the emotional ones. I thoroughly enjoyed returning to this universe.

I’m trying to think of a better term than saying, Arden works through her grief, or comes to terms with her grief, or even struggles with her grief because none of those truly fit. Grief is not only an emotion that has its own timeline, but it’s also an emotion that really never goes away. As a culture we don’t really handle grief well, but essentially grief is something that stays with you forever. It’s not bad or shameful, it’s an emotion that is tied to the person you lost. It’s really okay to be sad and have memories over that person, but grief, unlike love that grows with time, lessons with it.

Arden is consumed with her grief at the beginning of this book and even though that grief has eased with time, Arden does not feel she is ready to move on and meet a new mate. Grief and time tend to go hand in hand, but there is no set clock when the heart is ready to love again. However, when Arden meets Cohen and then Bastian, two Alphas, her biology might make that final push for her, but what she wasn’t prepared for is her best friend who’s always been by her side, the man who’s held a flame while he stood in the shadows until she was ready finally, a beta with the biggest heart, who wasn’t about to let two alphas step in while he finally has a chance to declare his love.

Knot a Chance deals with some pretty heavy topics and I know I had to stop and wipe several tears from my own eyes so I could continue reading. However, Locke, the big hearted beta, wasn’t too far behind to make me smile and laugh to brighten my spirit right back up. Arden is one lucky girl, she has the best of three wonderful men who, once they decide to all get with the program, and Arden finally makes that leap to love again…well, it’s full knotty steam ahead.

Synopsis:
Time heals all wounds…

Yeah, I call bullshit. My grief still bleeds out each and every day no matter how much time passes.

I’ve managed to make a new life for myself by helping my bestie run TheOmegasGuide—our viral social media account. We support freedom of choice for all designations.

Though I’m starting to wonder if having a choice is really all that great. Locke’s up my ass more than usual, acting weird, and…is my hulking Beta friend flirting? I’d be lying if I said I didn’t secretly hope he’d ignore that whole friend-zone thing. Then there’s Cohen—the commanding, broody Alpha who wants nothing to do with me, but that I can’t stop thinking about. Of course, I can’t forget Bastian—the sexy stranger I ran into—literally. With his big, warm, mouthwateringly gorgeous body and haunted brown eyes, I’d love the chance to get to know him better.

The intensity of our chemistry is explosive, but they’re not a pack, and I’m not looking for another forever….right? No. It hurts too much and goes against everything I believe now.

No relationships. No commitments. This Omega needs to rediscover just who she is and can’t fall into anything serious.

Nope. Knot a chance.

Blog Tour – No Time To Lie by Lexi Blake

A race against time.
A race for love.

No Time to Lie, an exciting second chance romance in the Masters and Mercenaries: Reloaded Series from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake is out now!

A grandmaster of lies and deception

Drake Radcliffe has spent half his life in the shadows. Recruited by the CIA when he was barely out of high school, Drake doesn’t know how to have a normal life. While most people his age were playing sports or video games, he was playing spy games with the world’s most dangerous adversaries. It has been a life filled with thrills and adrenaline, but it’s also been lonely. All that might change when a mistake from Drake’s past rears its ugly head and he’s forced to face the only woman he ever loved—the one he’d vowed to stay away from.

A beacon of love and compassion

Taylor Cline committed the cardinal sin in her world—she fell for another operative. Drake was everything she wanted in a man, until he broke her heart. She had one unforgettable night with him and then he never looked back. Her future threatened and family in ruins, she shut down and moved on, hoping to never see him again. Just as she is beginning to put it all behind her, a critical assignment puts her under his authority and right back in his arms.

A deadly mission that brings them together

From the wilds of Wyoming to the glittering cities of Europe, Drake and Taylor must race against time to uncover the truth and expose an evil organization. The stakes couldn’t be higher. If they fail, the world could crumble. If they succeed, they could finally have everything their hearts desire.

Drake’s attention was completely focused on her. “I think I want to be honest and upfront with you. I’m attracted to you, Taylor, and I think you feel the same.”

She felt a jolt of heat power through her. “Even if I was, I don’t think it’s a good idea.”

“Can I ask why?”

She didn’t sense any threat from him. With any man who hit on her, she had to assess the potential of him taking rejection poorly. She didn’t think Drake was one of those guys. The last couple of days had made her comfortable with him. “I don’t think it’s smart to get involved with someone I work with.”

“You don’t work with me. From what you’ve said, you won’t be with the Agency for much longer.”

“Yes, and you will be,” she pointed out.

A thoughtful expression came over his face. “That’s kind of what makes it workable in my mind. I can’t tell anyone what I do. That makes for difficult relationships. You already know, and it won’t surprise you that I don’t talk about my work. You won’t get upset if I have to be gone for a couple of weeks without notice. I have a hard time making connections to people, but it was easy with you. Even if you’re not interested in me in a physical way, I hope we can be…friends.” He said the word like it didn’t quite make sense to him. Like it was a foreign word on his tongue.

There was no way for her to deny the electricity between them. She wasn’t sure she even wanted to. That inner voice kept getting stronger.

What would be the harm in seeing if it could work? You might get an orgasm or two out of it. He’s not saying he’s going to walk at the end. He’s actually saying he wants to see you outside this cabin. Why not try?

She was a careful woman. She’d learned that lesson from watching her father throw himself into deadly situations again and again.

But what was she risking? He was right. It was hard for her to connect. She’d had a couple of boyfriends over the years, and she had to hold back so much of herself to even have a chance at making the relationship work. She couldn’t talk about what her father did, couldn’t mention her own work. Wouldn’t it be refreshing to have no secrets between them?

“Did I make you uncomfortable?” Drake asked. “Because we can pretend like I didn’t say anything. This snow is going to stop soon, and I should be out of here in a couple of days.”

She reached for his hand. “You didn’t make me uncomfortable. I’m glad you were honest with me. The last couple of days have been…nice.”

A slow smile spread across his face, and he threaded his fingers through hers. “Nice? Awful sexual tension is nice to you?”

“I wouldn’t say awful. Anticipation can be fun.” It was good to know she hadn’t been the only one who felt the heat between them.

“Are you saying yes?” Drake asked.

Did she want to let him walk out of here and never know what it felt like to be in his arms? They’d been thrown together for a reason. It couldn’t be some random thing that they’d met again. She would hate herself if she didn’t give it a shot.

In a couple of months she would be out of this life and might be able to find some kind of normalcy. Maybe it was time to take a chance.

“Yes,” she said.

“Then come here and let me kiss you and tell you how the night’s going to go,” he said in a commanding tone.

Her whole body responded. She moved, standing and twisting so she sat on his lap. “How is my night going to go, Drake?”

One big hand cupped the nape of her neck while his other arm wound around her waist. “Let’s find out.”

Blurb:
Lights. Camera. Action
I’ve got everything it takes to make it in Tinseltown: confidence, charisma, and a killer chin. Now all I need is a chance.
But Los Angeles is full of hot, young hunks, and talent might not be enough to separate me from the cookie-cutter crowd.
Well, you know what they say: fake it till you make it.
So I devise a wild scheme to get noticed. Pretend I’m someone I’m not—goodbye Will O’Connell of Cincinnati and hello Liam O’Connell of Dublin.
‘Liam’ and his talent with accents is enough to get myfoot in the door, but I never anticipated meeting the woman who has me more worried about keeping my foot out of my mouth.
Enter Raven Locke, the dark-haired bombshell who puts the ‘tude in tattooed.
On set, she’s the costumer tasked with fitting my pants, but all I can think about is how to get into hers.
As my — I mean, Liam’s — budding career begins to heat up, so do our feelings.
While Raven pursues her passion for fashion; I chase her heart.
Our picture-perfect screenplay seems sure to send us riding off onto Sunset Boulevard… Until Raven finds out that Comedy and Tragedy aren’t the only masks I’m wearing. Our romance might be destined for the cutting room floor, unless I can salvage our story with a plot twist she won’t see coming.

*This first-person, male-POV rom-com has it all: lots of heat, plenty of heart, and a Hollywood-worthy HEA.

I didn’t recognize the night guard, but he straightened from the wall where he was positioned when I stepped into the hallway.

“Where is he?” I asked, before he could say anything.

His hands came together in front of him and he stood even taller. He nodded forward. “In the basement gym, ma’am.”

Ma’am.

I grinned at that, literally hearing Chrissy chuckling next to me. “You’re just like me now, girly. Ma’am. What a hoot.”

Yeah. A hoot.

I padded past him and headed for the elevator that went past the main section of the house. Going inside, I hit the basement floor, and there were two guards waiting for me.

I paused, seeing Josh as he was eyeing me. “Don’t you ever sleep?”

He grinned. “I sleep when your man sleeps.”

I narrowed my eyes.

His grin deepened. “So that’s rarely, ma’am.”

I bared my teeth. “Don’t you start with that ‘ma’am’ shit.”

He just laughed. “Would never entertain the thought, ma—”

I growled.

He amended, still chuckling, “Bailey.”

I scoffed, “Better.”

If anyone had asked me where the gym was on the Chesapeake estates, I wouldn’t have had a clue. I would’ve rolled my eyes and said something sarcastic like, “Of course there’s a gym; it’s alongside the Olympic-sized pool,” but now I knew exactly where it was, and it was right next to an Olympic-sized pool, though the pool was only two lanes wide. It wasn’t built for playing and horsing around, not like the pool outside, which had a complete slide with it.

Heading farther toward the gym, I was shocked to not hear sounds of grunting and punching from inside. Instead, the door to the pool was open.

“He had some extra energy to work off.”

I glanced sideways, not having heard Josh walking beside me.

“I honestly don’t think he’s human.”

Josh’s mouth twitched. “You might be on to something, Bailey.”

We came to the door and he stepped forward, checking the room before nodding for me to go ahead. I stepped inside, feeling the humidity and breathing in the chlorine before I noticed Josh shutting the door. A second later, I met his gaze through the door’s window, and he gave me another polite smile before pressing a button. The window frosted over.

Looking to the corner, I saw the camera’s light switch from green to red. Josh was giving us complete privacy, and only when that was all done did I seek out where Kash was. He was at the far end, turning, flipping, and coming up a few paces away, heading my way. I went to the edge and sat down, putting my feet in the water.

I didn’t have long to wait, enjoying the view as Kash’s arms were cutting through the water, his shoulders and biceps bulging from the motion.

I forgot how he was a fish in water.

His head was perfectly in alignment with his shoulders, and every fourth arm swing he raised his mouth up for air and went back down. He went past me. I thought he was going to keep going, but at the last second, his hand snaked out. He latched on to my ankle and tugged me into the water.

I shrieked before I was eating chlorine. “Agh!”

He grinned, the water pulsating between us, and he maneuvered me back until I was against the pool wall. “What are you doing down here?” His eyes were alert, taking me in as he placed both hands on either side of me, trapping me.

The buoyancy kept me floating, but then Kash was moving his legs under me and I was completely resting over him. My legs straddled his, and he hooked one ankle around the other, tugging me to open even wider for him.

Heat flared in me, boiling my blood, but when I thought Kash would bend his head, finding my throat, he didn’t. He moved his head back, sinking so he was on the same eye level as me, and he tugged at his sweatshirt. “Nice shirt.”

I grinned, feeling a laziness intertwining with the warmth in me. “It was this or a robe. This was closer.”

“Really?”

I nodded, enjoying the teasing look in his eyes. It was dark, but it was there. “Really.” My voice hitched on a soft sigh with that one. He grew sober, his head moving back so he could take me in more fully. “You look good.” His eyebrows dipped down. “You look like you again.” His hand moved, and he touched a wet finger beside my eye. “I see you again.”

My throat swelled up, my chest filled with an ache that was bittersweet.

“Woke up.”

“I can see that.” His head cocked to the side, but he didn’t say anything further. He was still holding me in place, and as he settled back, I knew he was waiting for me. He was waiting for whatever I was going to say or do, for whatever path I was going to put us on because that’s what I felt in that moment.

I was awake.

I said, “I know you’ve been waiting for me.”

That somber expression settled back on him and his hand went back to the pool wall, trapping me in again.

“I’ll never forget what they did to her, what he did to her, but I wasn’t myself. You gave me that time. You knew I would come back to me and I did. I’m here. Me. And I’m ready for the next chapter.”

Hunger licked my insides, lighting that fire again.

It grew, jumping up, and it was engulfing me.

I sunk down on Kash’s legs, and the higher that blaze built in me, the more I wanted him. But I wanted more.

I wanted blood.

Review – Cruel Saint by Luna Kayne

Cruel Saint; Vicious Empire #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: September 20, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Dark/Second Chance/Intrigue/Mafia Romance

Author: Luna Kayne

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Cruel Saint is the first in the series with a continuing storyline that will follow through the rest of the books, but this particular story focused on the love interests between Ryder Saint and Amara Scott.

Ryder and Amara have a lot of unique twists wrapped up in their second chance love. Amara was sold into an arranged marriage with Ryder, but they were already in a secret relationship before either one of them discovered this news. However, their contract was dissolved when her father died and she actually moved away crushing them both. Now it’s a few years later and Ryder is back to claim the woman who has always been his, but Amara doesn’t feel quite the same.

There are a whole lot of secrets and twists wrapped up in Ryder winning her back and that is only part of the story. On top of this romance battle there is an ongoing investigation into her brother’s murder which is also part of the series continuation plot, but there is also mystery surrounding members of their own family. I have to say I loved the intrigue and trying to unravel who could potentially be behind all of the upcoming plot twists.

Within this first book we do get to meet, on some sort of level, all of the Saint family members, along with Amara’s family. There are also a few additional people sprinkled in that give extra twists to this angsty book which I’m already loving. Have we meet everyone who could be a suspect yet? I’m not entirely sure, but I love trying to unravel all the leads that could lead me to the possible killer.

I’m anxiously awaiting the next book, which will focus on another Saint brother and his fall into love, but will also continue this ever evolving plot into the intriguing mystery.

Synopsis:
HE WAS HER FIRST FOR EVERYTHING.
NOW HE’S DETERMINED TO BE HER LAST.

RYDER SAINT
Amara is my dark obsession. She was promised to me in a deal she knows nothing about.
Four years ago, I sent her away to protect her from the life I live as the son of a crime lord.
Now her brother—my best friend—is dead, and though I wasn’t there for him in the end, I intend to look after his little sister.
I should stay in the shadows, let her live the life her brother wanted for her, but she’s in trouble in more ways than one, and I’m the only one who can save her…but I’ll have to break her first.
Good girls keep their promises, and it’s time Amara came home—to me—where she belongs.

AMARA SCOTT
As far as I’m concerned, Ryder let me go four years ago, and I never looked back.
Now he shows up demanding I come home, and I have no choice but to return when he forces my hand.
The Saints never pay for their crimes. They take what they want and discard the rest. Like me…
But I’m not a weak girl anymore, and I’m packing some secrets of my own.
I’ll use my time to find out who killed my brother…then I’ll destroy them.
Even if that man is Ryder himself.

* Cruel Saint is the first book in the Vicious Empire dark romance family saga series.

I’ve never been romantic. Just ask my ex-wife.

Since she broke up with me, I get my needs met any time I want, without putting my heart on the line. Exactly how I like it.

But when she is called overseas and leaves me with our child, my bachelor lifestyle ends faster than you can say, “Daddy, I want a pony.”

I need help.

Problem is, help’s come in the form of an incredibly hot nanny.

My employee.

Who is much younger than me.

And also … a guy.

I watch Scott care for my kid and can’t help feeling like he clicks into place in her life.

When he looks at me, though … I get an entirely different feeling. One that makes me long for things I can’t have.

Like him.
