Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The dramatic conclusion to a RH, shifter series.

This was my first Elizabeth Knight book. I know….I started at the end of a series, but I easily caught up to the plot of what Viv and her mates were facing and felt the love she shared with all seven (YES, seven) of her men. That would be a lot of laundry to clean, but these men are werewolves and they bust out of their clothes when they shift, sooooo laundry problem solved.

In this final book of the Hope Series and there is a lot of suspense and action. Tracking down the enemy to finally achieving peace takes not only Viv and her seven mates, but the help of wolves throughout the country. This is the time that Viv’s Dama really comes shining through.

Is any of this story plausible? This is a paranormal story, so absolutely not, but there were scenes that certainly had me thinking, even with their paranormal abilities that this group would have needed more time in planning the big attacks that they did. That is truly my opinion and I’m sticking with it.

There are moments that could be sensitive for some readers, regarding motherhood and loss of life, but this is also a fantastical world so I feel Elizabeth kept that in mind when writing those bits.

This is a series that is best read in order, but I did jump in right at the end and enjoyed the final book to this werewolf world.

Synopsis:

The time has come to end this.

No longer will I hide away locked in my own sorrow. Instead, I will channel that pain into righteous fury. Once again I’m reconnected with my mates, and with new allies who have been dealt the same ruthless hand as me— finally have the army I need.

The call has been sent out for those who want their pound of flesh to come together.

My enemy isn’t going down without a fight. Every move we make, they follow it up with one of their own. What they don’t know is that with each attack, I gain the knowledge I need, that will aid me in taking them down. We know where they are hiding, and we know the cruel things they’re still doing to those they claim to protect. That just fuels my thirst for vengeance.

This battle will end in one of two ways—their death or ours—and I don’t plan on dying anytime soon.

Book 4 out of 4

This is a medium burn reverse harem where the leading character will not have to choose between her men. It is an 18+ book that has strong language, sexual situations, along with darker material such as torture, violence, and some matters pertaining to the fragility of life.

Part of a series, best read in order:

Hidden Hope (Hope, #1) Claiming Hope (Hope, #2) Defending Hope (Hope #3)

2022 New Release/Release Day, Contemporary Romance, RomCom, Year of Releases - 2022, Year of Reviews - 2022

New Release – Josh and Gemma Make a Baby by Sarah Ready

When the baby-making ends will something else begin?

Josh and Gemma Make a Baby, an all new laugh-out-loud friends-to-lovers romantic comedy from bestselling author Sarah Ready is available now!

New Year’s Resolution:
Have a baby
Preferably with Josh Lewenthal

Meet Gemma Jacobs. She’s driven, energetic, and a positive thinker. She has a great career working for famed self-help guru Ian Fortune, she lives in a cute studio apartment in Manhattan, and her family is supportive and loving (albeit a little kooky). Her life is perfect. Absolutely wonderful.

Except for one tiny little thing.

After a decade of disastrous relationships and an infertility diagnosis, Gemma doesn’t want a Mr. Right (or even a Mr. Right Now), she just wants a baby.

And all she needs is an egg, some sperm, and IVF.

So Gemma makes a New Year’s resolution: have a baby.

Josh Lewenthal is a laid back, relaxed, find-the-humor-in-life kind of guy. The polar opposite of Gemma. He’s also her brother’s best friend. For the past twenty years Josh has attended every Jacobs’ family birthday, holiday, and event – he’s always around.

Gemma knows him. He’s nice (enough), he’s funny (-ish), he’s healthy (she thinks) and he didn’t burn any ants with a magnifying glass as a kid. Which, in Gemma’s mind, makes him the perfect option for a sperm donor.

So Gemma wants to make a deal. An unemotional, business-like arrangement. No commitments, just a baby.

To Gemma’s surprise, Josh agrees.

They have nothing in common, except their agreement to make a baby and their desire to keep things businesslike.

But the thing about baby-making…it’s hard to keep it businesslike, it’s nearly impossible to keep it unemotional, and it’s definitely impossible to keep your heart out of the mix. Because when you’re making a baby together, things have a way of starting to feel like you’re making other things too – like a life, and a family, and love. And when the baby-making ends, you wish that everything else didn’t have to end too.

Fall in love today!

Excerpt

Josh is on my bed.
What the heck?
It’s like he has some sort of super-psychic power that lets him know when a woman needs him. I think about him stealing my undies all those years ago and I realize that yes, he probably does have a secret power. Some sort of man radar—mandar.
We haven’t really spoken in years, except for the casual greeting at the New Year’s party or a “hi, how are you” at a random friends and family get together. Yet here he is, right when I need him.
I step into my bedroom and shut the door. Josh is spread out on my pink lace coverlet, his arms behind his head, and his legs crossed—the picture of relaxation. He’s in his standard outfit, faded jeans and a tight T-shirt depicting some obscure graphic novel character. His black hair needs a trim and he has at least two days’ worth of dark stubble on his face.
Even though I’m indifferent to him as a person and I know for a fact he’s not my type, my lady parts still clench. He’s that good looking.
He smirks at me, like he knows the effect he’s having. Here’s the thing about Josh, he’s completely unable to take life seriously. It’s like the whole universe is a funny joke to him, and he’s just living his life so he can be amused.
When he graduated from high school he was voted the most likely to succeed. He was captain of the football team, the basketball team, homecoming king and the valedictorian. Everyone thought he was going places. Especially me.
After he graduated from college he took a job at a tech start-up, worked his way up the ranks to VP, and then according to my brother, he just woke up one day and decided to quit. He walked into the office, took a box out of the supply closet, packed up his desk, and walked out. Ever since then he’s been doing his web comic thing. But I guess if he’s living with his dad again, it’s not going all that well.
I look him over. The thing is, I’m not sussing him out as a prospective husband, I don’t care about his career goals, how big his paycheck is, or whether he lives in his dad’s basement. I don’t care about his potential or non-potential as a life mate. I’m thinking about his genetics. And his genetics are just fine.
I close the door with a sharp snick.
“What are you doing on my bed?” I ask.
His eyes, always full of sharp intelligence, take in my sauce-covered dress and the blush still lingering on my cheeks.
“What are you doing covered in barbecue?” A small smile flits over his lips and his forehead wrinkles as he takes in my appearance.
My outfit from earlier is folded in a neat pile and sitting on my dresser. Josh starts to stand up.
“Stay there. I need to talk to you.”
I decide that rather than risk him leaving while I change, I’ll talk to him covered in sauce.
“Alright.” He scoots over and pats my bed.
I give him a look and he shrugs. “Sorry. I was up all night finishing a storyboard. Whenever I stayed the night with Dylan, your mom would always give me your bed to sleep in. I didn’t think, it just seemed natural to…”
He trails off when he sees the expression on my face. I’m not sure how I feel about the fact that Josh has apparently been sleeping in my childhood bedroom for years.
I look at my dresser and realize that my teenage diary is in the top drawer hidden under my underwear. My skin prickles with, yup, that’s embarrassment. I look at the dresser then at Josh, but he doesn’t seem any different than usual. Maybe he’s not a snooper. Probably, yes, probably he never read it. Because if he had…errr…my teenage self was not shy about fantasizing about him.
I settle onto the mattress next to him.
He clears his throat and scoots over. “So what’s up?”
Oh God.
Am I really going to do this?
Can I do this?
It seemed perfectly reasonable and normal when I was planning it out after my doctor’s appointment. I looked more into donor sperm and weighed the benefits and detriments of donor versus Josh. Every way I looked at it, Josh came out on top.
He gives me a funny look. “Gemma? What’s up? You alright?”
“I need your sperm,” I blurt out.
Josh starts to choke, then he coughs. His face turns red and he hits his chest.
Oh no. I’ve killed him.
He coughs and his eyes water.
I slap his back and he shakes his head.
Maybe I shouldn’t have just blurted it out like that, but I was nervous and I didn’t think.
Finally, he takes a wheezing breath and says, “Come again?”
“I…I need your sperm?”
I smile at him. The look he gives me makes my hand fly to my mouth in an effort to contain the laugh bubbling up from my chest. Oh jeez, I’ve lost my brain. I should’ve written talking points or a speech or something.
“You want to have sex?” Josh asks. He looks really confused. “Gemma. You really have to work on your pick-up lines.”
I shake my head. But he’s already starting to lift his shirt up. I catch a glimpse of rock-hard abs. “If you want to, we can. But we’ll have to hurry. The New Year’s Resolution reading is soon. We have maybe ten minutes. Not that I can’t blow your mind in ten minutes.”
I scoot back and make a strangled sound.
He takes in my expression and starts to snicker.
“Kidding. Gemma, I’m kidding,” he says, and he drops his shirt.
I nod and blow out a long, mind-clearing breath. “Sorry, I didn’t say that right. What I meant to say was, ummm, we’ve known each other a long time.”
“Twenty-four years,” he agrees.
“Right. We grew up in the same town. Went to the same school. You’re my brother’s best friend. You come to our holiday parties, birthdays. You’re always around.”
I scrutinize his face to see if he gets where I’m going. Unfortunately, he just looks confused.
“I feel like I know you pretty well. I can say that you’re a decent guy.”
He frowns. “Thanks.”
“If I ask you something, do you promise not to tell Dylan, or anybody?”
Josh leans back and studies me. “Gem, I don’t think we should have sex.”
I close my eyes. “No. No, jeez. Obviously. Ugh, did it once, got the T-shirt.”
I open one eye and look at him, then I open the other.
He grins at me. “The T-shirt huh?”

New Release – Temptation by T.K. Leigh

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Temptation
Series: Temptation #1
Author: T.K. Leigh
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: January 24, 2022
BLURB

It was supposed to be a typical business trip to Hawaii.

During the day, I’d promote the new location of my bakery. At night, I’d relax on the lanai while sipping a glass of wine.

But that all changes when I meet him.

Sexy. Intriguing. Haunted.

And easily fifteen years younger than me.

I should walk away. The last thing I need after turning forty is a midlife crisis in the form of an Australian Adonis.

But something keeps drawing me back to him.

So I make a proposition.

One week. No names. No expectations.

It’s the perfect plan…

Until I learn the true identity of my vacation fling.

They say temptation can be dangerous.
I didn’t realize it could be so deadly.

Review – Say It Like You Mane It by Erin Nicholas

58878963. sy475

Say It Like You Mane It; Boys Of the Bayou Gone Wild #6 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: February 1, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy/Small Town/Hero Contemporary

Author: Erin Nicholas

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An insta-attraction, slow-burn romance with a protective cop….oooooh yeah!!

Zander Landry is super adorable. He secretly reads romance books and his inner monologue regarding all of the romantic thoughts that twist around the new blonde in town are so funny. He may just be my favorite Landry yet.

Zander is very aware of the Landry love curse. He’s been a first hand witness to all of his family members falling in love one by one, so when he first meets Caroline, he isn’t shocked of feeling big things. However, he still fights getting stuck in love because he’s very happy being a bachelor. Zander is also very aware of all of the romantic feelings with all of the romance books he reads. He’s no dummy, but he continually berates himself that he needs to switch up his reading to something else. It’s hilarious.

Zander is uber protective of his town, his family, and even Caroline the moment she steps foot in Autre. It’s in his nature to make sure everyone who enters his town is safe and that no funny business happens while strangers are there. Caroline definitely brings danger, funny business, and a hot package all wrapped up in one. The quicker she leaves the better he’ll feel, he hopes.

Caroline is super cute and no dummy. She just might be the perfect fit for not only Zander, but the entire big, boisterous Landry family. Zander needs to work fast on getting her out of his town if he wants to keep his bachelor status. LOL.

I loved, loved, loved this new addition to the Boys of Bayou collection and don’t worry this isn’t exactly the end of this beloved family. Erin gives us a peek into where she’s taking the Bayou Boys and I’m really excited on the new adventure.

Synopsis:

What happens when a hellraiser turned hot cop is stuck with a headstrong heiress he’s determined to protect…and resist?

A run-away bride, wearing a freakin’ tiara, and carrying a stolen lion cub, of all things. This was not how rowdy, bad-boy-turned-small-town-cop, Zander Landry expected his day to go.

He really didn’t expect his night to end with her sleeping in his bed after her near-kidnapping.

But his intense attraction to her and the feelings of protectiveness she stirs up? Oh, yeah, he knew those were coming.

She’s stunning, whip-smart, and trouble with a capital T.

Which means, he needs her to head right back the way she came. ASAP.

His town is exactly the way he wants it . . . crazy and trouble free.

Well, the crazy trouble he’s not related to anyway.

Stranded in a tiny town in her half-million-dollar wedding gown with no money and no place to go . . . today is going pretty much exactly the way Caroline Holland expected it to.

But the grumpy, tattooed, oh-my-god hot cop being the answer to all her problems isn’t at all what she expected.

Now that she’s turned all the criminal (and obnoxious) info about her exotic-animal-dealing ex-fiance over to Zander, she can kick back in a hammock with some sweet tea and relax.

Or not.

Turns out Caroline’s not the spoiled heiress Zander thinks she is. The gorgeous hellion wants in on the action and soon discovers just how dirty things can get in the bayou. And the bedroom.

More and more, Zander just wants her safe on the sidelines. But Caroline isn’t going anywhere until justice is done.

It’s a clash of wills that’s gonna get hotter than a crawfish boil in July. And the most fun the Landry family has had watching sparks fly since . . . well, the last book.

Review – The Difference Between Somebody and Someone by Aly Martinez

52283593. sy475

The Difference Between Somebody and Someone; Difference Trilogy #1
(#1 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: January 27, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Contemporary/Tragedy Romance

Author: Aly Martinez

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
WOW…just wow! I had goosebumps dotting my skin through the entire story!

Aly Martinez always writes emotional, gripping stories and this book is no different. Remi and Bowen dug their hooks in me from the start and I couldn’t tear my eyes from the pages until the jaw dropping end. Well done!

Bowen Michaels is suffering from loss. The love of his life is gone and it’s hitting him hard. The survivor’s grief is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the inner workings of Bowen’s mind. This grumpy man is made up of so much more, but that could be what draws Remi to him in the first place.

Remi is a bit of a klutz, but adorably lives her hotmess life with the curve balls thrown her way. She is sunshine to Bowen’s cloudy personality, but these two opposites share a common link, one that is surrounded by devastation and heartbreak.

Aly captivated me while totally obliterating my heart and I can honestly say I loved it! This book is filled with humor and grief and emotional turmoil. It’s such a beautiful blend of ups and downs that I can only say that I want more of Aly’s intoxicating words and addictive storytelling.

This book is only the first part of this couple’s tale and I desperately need to know more, which thankfully is coming sooner rather than later.

Synopsis:

The world owes you nothing.

It took losing the woman I loved and facing the paralyzing task of moving on without her for me to truly understand that.

Consumed by regret and razor-sharp memories, I’d resigned myself to a life of loneliness until a survivor from the same plane crash that took my fiancée stormed into my life.

Remi Grey was chaos and sunshine, fire and freedom. With her in my arms, I began to believe that fate had other plans for me.

But as secrets of the past exploded around us, it seemed the only thing fated about our relationship was that I had been destined to lose her from the start.

The world owes you nothing. But for Remi, I would risk it all. No matter the cost.

Part of the Difference Trilogy and should be read in order:

The Difference Between Somehow and Someway (Difference Trilogy,  #2) The Difference Between Somehow and Someway, #2

The Difference Between Someday and Forever (Difference Trilogy,  #3) The Difference Between Someday and Forever, #3

Review – Blind Pass by Teagan Hunter

59355908. sy475

Blind Pass; Carolina Comets #2
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: January 27, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy/Grumpy-Sunshine/Fake Marriage/Sports Romance

Author: Teagan Hunter

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

In a contemporary, sports rendition of Beauty and the Beast, Blind Pass is full of adorable fun and jammed packed with smexy chemistry. Teagan Hunter scored a goal with this fake marriage romance!

Who falls in love with their spouse after saying the words, “I do?” Adrian Rhodes and Ryan Bell are candidates for this very statement. Two similar souls with wounded hearts find themselves living up a night in Vegas and jump into a night they both never forget…or is that saying…a night they do forget due to being highly intoxicated. It could have ended that way except that it was recorded and posted online so maybe they won’t forget it after all. Either way, Rhodes and Ryan leave with a non-refundable present in each other. What happens in Vegas sometimes gets splashed all over the internet, like their last minute wedding. Now what?

This is a grumpy-sunshine, hockey romance with lots of humor and tons of heart. While this is a version of Beauty and the Beast, I love the vulnerable side that Rhodes offers up multiple times showing us that not all men live vain and egotistical lives. His grumpy side comes from a place of long time hurt, where he’s pretty much given up all hope of being happy in love, but Ryan truly sees him for more than just his vain outer shell. She may be the Beauty in this tale, but she digs below the surface and looks beyond the flaws to see inner beauty in those around her. I love that.

Mixed in with all the humor is a truly beautiful tale of loving one’s self and finding hope when you sometimes feel hopeless. These two will bring a lot of laughter, but also prepare for those heartstrings to be tugged as well.

Synopsis:

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay there.

I would know. I’m coming home with a brand-new ring on my finger.

My wife? Ryan Bell.
We’re polar opposites.
She’s sunshine and happiness.
I’m grumpy and scarred—literally.

We could get it annulled and no one would be the wiser.
Only problem? We posted about it online, and it’s already making headlines.

I can’t afford to get that kind of attention and tank my career, and Ryan needs my help too.

We make a plan: stay married for one year, play our roles, and divorce amicably at the end. No harm, no foul.

Besides, there’s no way the beauty is going to fall for the beast…

Review – Starry-Eyed Love by Helena Hunting

58772996

Starry-Eyed Love; Spark House #2 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 10, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary Romance

Author: Helena Hunting

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This is a sweetly romantic tale with a slow build.

London Spark is my new favorite Spark sister, although the little sister, Harlow, may be running a close second. Harlow’s story seems like it could be fun, but back to London, she’s quirky and full of energy, has a mind set for business and is dedicated to her family. Her passion and dedication knows no bounds, except maybe when it comes to dating. When an attractive man approaches her in a bar, literally days after her last failed relationship, she lets him down easy, or what she thought was easy, by not accepting his phone number and saying thanks, but no thanks. She never thought she’d see him again, especially when she’s presenting to a new media company and he’s the billionaire that runs it.

Jackson Holt is the head of Holt Media. He’s also the guy who was turned down by London a few months ago. Granted he looked like a homeless man at the time, but he had a very good reason for his glam-down look. He’d just been camping and had a full beard and was not in a suit, but seeing her again still had the same effect on him that he’d had back then which had pretty much knocked him off his feet. This time around is different though as they enter a working relationship and he can’t jeopardize her chance by dating him.

While these two work together, there can be no hanky panky, but the chemistry is still sizzling. Once their contract is done, the gloves come off, metaphorically speaking…however, is Jackson keeping secrets that could ruin the relationship they’ve been building?

This book is fun, low on drama, but also a slow build for heat. A perfect contemporary romance that fits in between lots of angsty reads. I loved it. (P.S. there are some really great cameos from Helena’s other books…squeeeeeee!!)

This is the second book set in the Spark House world, but can be read as a complete standalone.

Synopsis:

Charming, hilarious, and emotional…Starry-Eyed Love is Helena Hunting at her very best!

Having just broken up with her boyfriend, London Spark is not in the mood to be hit on. Especially not when she’s out celebrating her single status with her sisters. So when a very attractive man pays for their drinks and then slips her his number, she passes it right back to him with a ‘thanks, but no thanks’. As the business administrator for their family’s event hotel, the Spark House, London has more important things to worry about, like bringing in new clientele.

As luck would have it, a multi-million-dollar company calls a few months later asking for a meeting to discuss a potential partnership, and London is eager to prove to her sisters, and herself, that she can land this deal. Just when she thinks she has nailed her presentation, the company’s CEO, Jackson Holt, walks in and inserts himself into the meeting. Not only that, but he also happens to be the same guy she turned down at the bar a few months ago.

As they begin to spend more time together, their working relationship blossoms into something more. It isn’t until their professional entanglements are finally over, that London and Jackson are finally ready to take the next step in their relationship. But between Jackson’s secretive past and London’s struggle with her sisters, London must question where she really stands – not just with Jackson, but with the Spark House, too.

Blurb:

In my defense, I was left alone with a bottle of single-malt and a life-long penchant for protecting my baby sister. Still, that’s no excuse to send ten drunk-texts on why her hasty marriage would be a mistake.

If only I had just texted my sister. But nope. I accidentally sent the message to her, her groom, and his super hot wingman.

I also used the phrase “super hot wingman,” so I’d like to die now.

Instead, I have to plan a wedding with the aforementioned hottie and share a too-small guesthouse in steamy Miami.

Three days in the sun with the cocky, charming former athlete who likes to push my buttons? Fine, two can play at that let’s-infuriate-each-other game.

Until Asher ups the stakes with one wildly sexy suggestion. A no-strings fling, then I go back to my single dad life in New York, and he returns to his star-studded one.

Sign me up.

But the more nights I spend with the other best man, the more I want days too, and that just can’t happen. Especially when I find out the real reason why…

geni.us/Five

My family is everything to me.

When my life was ripped away from me, I found them.

Silas, Gabriel, and Baron—my hearts, my family, my home.

Together, we’re a dangerous family of assassins, but I’ve never been happier.

Until a member of our family goes missing.

He went out for a simple job and never came back.

Now it’s up to Baron, Silas, and I to bring him home—but what if he doesn’t want to be found?

What if the family he’s found is better than the one we have here?

And what if I find myself caught up in their web of lies while becoming strangely drawn to someone I shouldn’t be?

All I know is that I can’t live without my family, and I’ll do anything to keep them safe.

Even if that means facing the truth.

We’re nothing if we’re not together—all of us.

Desperate times call for desperate measures—like pretending to be my best friend and posing as a millionaire’s escort for the night.

BLURB

#12 Johnny Decker. Star quarterback for the Boston Tomcats. Two-time Super Bowl MVP…a decade ago. Nickname: Decker the Panty Wrecker.

I get tackled for a living by men who are built like rhinos. I could take the wings off a fly with a football from 30 yards away. (I wouldn’t, but I could.) Being a veteran quarterback means I’m a mentally alert, fine-tuned athletic machine who can make split-second decisions.
It’s my job to anticipate what’s going to happen next and adapt. But I couldn’t have anticipated the death of our beloved team owner.

His estranged daughter Hannah Strong is a finance nerd from New York. She knows less than nothing about football. Know what she didn’t anticipate? Inheriting the Boston Tomcats.
She’s stubborn, uptight, infuriating, and wrong about absolutely everything—from pizza to how to run my team. And I don’t want to talk about how good she looks in a skirt. Or daydream about how good she’d look out of it.

Really, I don’t.

I’m not Decker the Panty Wrecker anymore—I’ve changed.

I can’t stop arguing with her.

Or thinking about her.

I thought I had a winning play.

But Hannah Strong changed everything.

ABOUT KAYLEY LORING

Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn’t allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s an Amazon Top 25 bestselling author who is breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

Rest assured that her funny sexy sweet romances have no cheating or cliffhangers, and always have HEAs!

He is excited to now create those stories as an author.

My boss. My sin.

I’m not the type who has one night stands.
It wasn’t supposed to happen, okay?
A couple of drinks and a sinful British accent later and I’m in bed with a stranger.

Of course, I left first thing in the morning because I’m a responsible adult.

An adult who has a new job that I need in order to keep my double life a secret.
Little did I know I’m not, in fact, responsible.
Because the stranger I left in bed? Yeah, he’s not a stranger after all.
He’s my new boss.

Knox Van Doren might have a charming smile, but a true villain lurks beneath it all.
And like any villain, he’ll use my sin against me…

Review – The Best Men by Sarina Bowen and Lauren Blakely

58790303. sy475

The Best Men 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: January 18, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Enemies-to-Lovers/MM Romance

Author: Sarina Bowen and Lauren Blakely

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Panty melting hotness mixed with giggle out loud laughter. The Best Men combined the best of both worlds which made for utterly divine reading.

The powerhouse duo of Blakely and Bowen absolutely blew the roof off this book!! From beginning to end I couldn’t put the story down. Yes, this book was hot, pure molten lava fire HOT! But, these boys, sorry men, were also flushed out, well developed and supremely well written that I was right there living every moment with them. I was completely immersed in their world and never wanted to leave.

Mark Banks is a single, divorced father. He works on Wall Street in a high pressure job and he’s the main caregiver to his 6 year old daughter. It doesn’t leave a lot of time or basically any time for dating or relieving the stress of his life. He’s not bitter about where he is in life, per say, he just never thought he’d be single with his only companion being his hand late at night dreaming of wicked fantasies he’d one day like to have that didn’t involve just his palm and five digits as dates. When Mark meets Asher St. James, a man who exemplifies the single bachelorhood lifestyle, Mark instantly and outwardly loathes him, but also inwardly he wants to mount him and introduce him to his late night activities. It’s very confusing to his steady late night date.

Asher is a fun, former athlete – now professional photographer. His smooth personality wins everyone over, everyone except Mark Banks. Basically Asher’s that guy that everyone in the room likes and he can’t understand why Mark Banks doesn’t seem to like him. Asher shouldn’t take it personally, it really isn’t him per say. Well, it sort of isn’t him. Asher isn’t used to flirting with straight men, but is Mark straight? All signs of his divorce and six year old daughter would say yes, but the very confusing things Mark says to Asher would say otherwise. Don’t take it personally Asher…there is a very specific reason Mark is the way he is…Lucky for both of them, a week in Miami planning a wedding for Mark’s sister and Asher’s best friend should help clear things up, or at least clear out Mark’s excel spreadsheet.

A fun, totally steamy, opposites-attract great read!!

Synopsis:

Bestselling authors Sarina Bowen and Lauren Blakely team up for the first time in an enemies-to-lovers, opposites-attract, irresistibly sexy standalone romance between the best man and the other best man!

In my defense, I was left alone with a bottle of single-malt and a life-long penchant for protecting my baby sister. Still, that’s no excuse to send ten drunk-texts on why her hasty marriage would be a mistake.

If only I had just texted my sister. But nope. I accidentally sent the message to her, her groom, and his super hot wingman.

I also used the phrase “super hot wingman,” so I’d like to die now.

Instead, I have to plan a wedding with the aforementioned hottie and share a too-small guesthouse in steamy Miami.

Three days in the sun with the cocky, charming former athlete who likes to push my buttons? Fine, two can play at that let’s-infuriate-each-other game.

Until Asher ups the stakes with one wildly sexy suggestion. A no-strings fling, then I go back to my single dad life in New York, and he returns to his star-studded one.

Sign me up.

But the more nights I spend with the other best man, the more I want days too, and that just can’t happen. Especially when I find out the real reason why…

Review – Temptation by T.K. Leigh

59630405. sy475

Temptation; Temptation #1 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: January 24, 2022

Genre/Tropes: OW-YM/Intrigue/Contemporary Romance

Author: T.K. Leigh

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Tantalizing, intriguing, and the mic drop ending…it took minutes to pick my jaw up from the floor.

The explosive build up between Lachlan and Julia is truly delicious. I was fanning myself over their chemistry and eagerly awaiting as their attraction grew and grew until they were tempted beyond control. I’ve never been to Hawaii, but now I want to visit…yesterday.

Aside from the couples brewing chemistry, the intriguing storyline is also interwoven throughout. Both Lachlan and Julia have a dark cloud hanging over their heads and it really moves the story along. I wanted to know more about their past and of course I was eager to find out more while wanting these two to rip each others clothes off, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.

This is just the first book in this fantastic series and I can’t wait to jump back in for more.

Synopsis:

A sexy Australian surfer.
An attraction she can’t ignore.
Business has never been so pleasurable.

It was supposed to be a typical business trip to Hawaii. During the day, I’d put the final touches on the new location of my bakery. At night, I’d relax on the lanai while sipping a glass of wine.

But that all changed when I met Lachlan.

Sexy. Intriguing. Haunted.

And easily fifteen years younger than me.

I should walk away. Forget about the way he sparks a yearning inside me I thought died years ago.

But something keeps drawing me back to him.

So I make a proposition. One week. No last names. No expectations.

It was the perfect plan…

Until it wasn’t.

They say temptation can be dangerous. I didn’t realize it could be so deadly.

For Remy, it never mattered to her that Hyde was always too serious and always seemed so sad. To her, he was the very best, and the center of her entire world. She never dreamed he would let her down when she needed him the most.
Now Remy is a semi-reasonable adult, one with a better understanding of why her intense feelings scared Hyde away when she was at her lowest point. She’s moved on, and if anyone asks she’s perfectly happy with the chaotic and hectic life she’s built. She’s also really proud that she’s still around to experience all the best and worst that surviving something deeply traumatic has to offer. The last thing she needs or wants, is Hyde coming back and taking over her every thought and feeling the way he once did. Unfortunately, they picked the exact same time to come home to search for a little redemption.
When he was a little boy, the instant they met, Hyde Fuller wanted nothing more than to protect Remy Archer from everything, including herself. She gleefully took up every moment of his free time, and every ounce of his patience, as they grew alongside one another. He was so intent on keeping her safe, he didn’t realize how deeply Remy had worked her way into his heart.
Now that Hyde’s facing the biggest challenge and biggest change of his entire life, he deeply regrets walking away from Remy. She was always the one person who always had his back, no matter what. The way Remy loved him used to terrify him, but now, it’s the way he loves her that scares him to death.
Hyde knows he needs Remy in his life, so he can finally figure out how to be the man she always believed him to be. History has a bad habit of repeating itself, and Remy has a knack for turning even the most simple of situations end over end. This time Hyde is determined to stay by her side no matter what, even though his love for Remy is going to change more than his life this time around.

BLURB

#12 Johnny Decker. Star quarterback for the Boston Tomcats. Two-time Super Bowl MVP…a decade ago. Nickname: Decker the Panty Wrecker.

I get tackled for a living by men who are built like rhinos. I could take the wings off a fly with a football from 30 yards away. (I wouldn’t, but I could.) Being a veteran quarterback means I’m a mentally alert, fine-tuned athletic machine who can make split-second decisions.
It’s my job to anticipate what’s going to happen next and adapt. But I couldn’t have anticipated the death of our beloved team owner.

His estranged daughter Hannah Strong is a finance nerd from New York. She knows less than nothing about football. Know what she didn’t anticipate? Inheriting the Boston Tomcats.
She’s stubborn, uptight, infuriating, and wrong about absolutely everything—from pizza to how to run my team. And I don’t want to talk about how good she looks in a skirt. Or daydream about how good she’d look out of it.

Really, I don’t.

I’m not Decker the Panty Wrecker anymore—I’ve changed.

I can’t stop arguing with her.

Or thinking about her.

I thought I had a winning play.

But Hannah Strong changed everything.

ABOUT KAYLEY LORING

Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn’t allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s an Amazon Top 25 bestselling author who is breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

Rest assured that her funny sexy sweet romances have no cheating or cliffhangers, and always have HEAs!

Read Kay’s Review: Triple Threat

EXCERPT

“You know,” Ford says, smirking as he sidles up beside me in the hallway after our second class of the day, “I could give you a ride.”
“You’re a perv.”
He laughs, the sound warming parts of me I’d never known existed. “Technically, you’re the perv. I meant an actual ride. In my car. Not on my cock.”
The mention of Ford’s cock has a flood of heat coursing through me. I elbow him hard in his side and storm ahead of him. Based on his stupid laughter, I’d say he’s enjoying tormenting me.
You enjoy it too…
I don’t let myself dwell on that thought for too long.
A heavy, muscled arm wraps around my shoulders as Ford catches up. He’s so touchy-feely. I hate that I barely know the guy and my body responds as though he’s familiar to me.
I roll my eyes but don’t shake him off. For a second, I can pretend I’m a normal college-aged woman with a good-looking guy who’s interested in her. There aren’t controlling, abusive fathers or little sisters who need looking after. There isn’t pressure or stress or drama.
Several people glance at us as we walk by. I’m not sure what’s drawing their attention. My money’s on the sexy beast of a man who seems to be staking a claim on me. A flutter in my chest indicates just how much I like that idea.
Which is completely dumb.
I can allow myself a friend, but nothing more. Not when there’s so much at stake. Blatantly going against Dad’s expressed wishes at having me date someone in his power circle would be the worst possible thing I could do. Not only could he backtrack and keep me from attending college, he might somehow punish Della with his anger.
I’m feeling quite somber and dismayed that it takes me a second to realize we’ve stopped and Ford is speaking to me.
“This is the part where you’re supposed to be impressed,” he grumbles, waving his hand toward a sleek vehicle. “Seriously. We can’t be friends if you won’t even acknowledge my baby.”
He’s pouting.
Over a dumb car.
For some reason, this amuses me. It is, in fact, a gorgeous car, but the fact I haven’t gushed over its beauty and he’s pouting about it, has a bubble of laughter escaping. One attempt at smothering my giggling leads to an unladylike snort, which has me erupting with more laughter.
Ford releases me, muttering under his breath, and hits the fob. I bite on my bottom lip to contain my cackling. He flings open the door and gestures in overemphasis as if to prove the inside is just as pretty. It’s the look of pure exasperation on his face that has me losing it again.
“You’re a real bitch, Laundry,” he grits out, though there’s no real venom in his tone. “No one’s ever laughed at my car before.”
“You said I was different and you were right. I bet you’re rethinking making me your friend.” I arch a brow at him now that the giggling has faded. “See you around, Chevy.”
His maple syrup eyes slowly peruse down my body, lazily drinking up every detail of me. I try not to squirm but when someone like Ford Mann is practically devouring you, it’s hard not to.
“Let me take you home,” he urges, his voice dropping several octaves and managing to reverberate through me. “I’ll go slow.”
The fire in his eyes says he’s talking about more than just a ride in his car. He’s talking about the ride of my life. All I’d have to do is give in.
Gravel crunches behind me and a sleek, black Mercedes SUV pulls up. I recognize Trey, one of Dad’s drivers, sitting behind the wheel. Time to go.
“My ride’s here.” I motion toward the Mercedes. “Maybe some other time.”
Like never.
Unfortunately.
Ford peels his stare from me to give Trey a once-over. When his eyes find their way back to mine, they’re harder than before and glint with something almost calculating. The warmth between us is snuffed out and a chill works its way down my spine.
“Goodbye, Ford.”
“See you soon.” He winks at me but the action is almost taunting. “That’s a promise.”

Review – Five by Sara Cate and Rachel Leigh

59612541. sy475

Five; Black Heart #2 
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: January 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Mafia/Suspense/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Sara Cate and Rachel Leigh

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Intense action, steamy erotic romance and emotional turmoil. Five brings all the ups and downs.

This is my first stroll into the Black Heart world, but I wasn’t lost considering I didn’t read Four. Iris is one lucky lady living with three men, Silas, Gabriel, and Baron. It’s not conventional by any means especially given that Silas is the father; biologically over Baron and adoptive over Gabriel. Dig a little deeper and these three men are also assassins for hire, so their family dynamic is already a tad messed up, but they make it work. They share Iris, alternating nights, but never sharing at the same time. It works for their home life, until a cog suddenly falls out of place.

When Gabriel leaves for a mission and doesn’t return, their entire family knows something is wrong. The Blacks work relentlessly to retrieve him, but in the meantime Gabriel learns some interesting facts about his captors and Iris falls prey to her own mission causing a new ripple in the already complicated family dynamic.

I loved the complicated feelings that this reverse harem brought to the story. Each man had their own feelings about the woman they loved and wanted to call their own, but along with that Iris also felt very deeply about her men. Add in the suspense of what was going on around them and it only heightened those emotions.

A very well done, tenseful, reverse harem story.

Synopsis:

My family is everything to me.

When my life was ripped away from me, I found them.

Silas, Gabriel, and Baron—my hearts, my family, my home.

Together, we’re a dangerous family of assassins, but I’ve never been happier.

Until a member of our family goes missing.

He went out for a simple job and never came back.

Now it’s up to Baron, Silas, and I to bring him home—but what if he doesn’t want to be found?

What if the family he’s found is better than the one we have here?

And what if I find myself caught up in their web of lies while becoming strangely drawn to someone I shouldn’t be?

All I know is that I can’t live without my family, and I’ll do anything to keep them safe.

Even if that means facing the truth.

We’re nothing if we’re not together—all of us.

Review – Decker by Kayley Loring and Connor Crais

59666456. sy475

Decker; Changing the Play 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: January 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy

Author: Kayley Loring and Connor Crais

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Sweetly adorable while still intensely hot. Loring’s brilliant comedy shined throughout this fantastic sports romance while her new co-writing partner, Connor Crais, only increased the awesomeness of the overall plot.

You’d think these two have been writing together for years this book was so well done. There was never a point I thought, this sounds exactly like a man, or this is specifically Kayley’s writing. It’s flawless and perfectly executed. All the charm, cuteness, and loveable qualities that bring me back to Loring’s books over and over again was still there, but there was also this extra sprinkle on top that I’m guessing was the Connor factor.  I’m going with that and I’m sticking to it.

John Decker, the reformed panty wrecker, since his main focus is truly on football and not ravaging all the panties in Boston like when he was a young rookie. His character is likeable from start to finish. He’s a leader on and off the field and he reminded me a lot of great players across generations and in other various sports as well. Whomever the inspiration was for Loring and Crais to draw from, they did a fantastic job on creating and drawing out a well rounded QB1. It’s been years since I’ve asked questions and really paid attention to specifics in football. It’s on my TV on the weekends mostly as background noise, but Decker even refreshed the old spirit in this gal and I found myself paying more attention to the TV than I have in years.

I adored Hannah Strong and loved that she was a woman willing to step into a man’s world and never give up. That strength in character is a trait that more women need to see and experience in everyday life and it’s slowly changing over time, but I love that it’s also happening in the fictional world too. Women are still a minority when it comes to being owners of sports teams. Hannah had a big job in finance before she came over to the sports world, so she had analytics behind her. What she didn’t have was any knowledge of the sport she was taking over, however, she did have the panty wrecker willing to give her a hand…with several things.

These two were pure fire from the beginning and their chemistry never let up. I also loved Hannah’s quest for knowledge and her undying, relentless pursuit to never quit. No matter how tough something was she wasn’t going to stop. That is the same ethics that professional athletes have and it’s ultimately what wins them over as well, especially the QB1.

Is there some drama, of course, but are there lots of quirky, hot, fun times too…yes!! This book brings it all, along with lots of football.

Synopsis:

#12 Johnny Decker. Star quarterback for the Boston Tomcats. Two-time Super Bowl MVP…a decade ago. Nickname: Decker the Panty Wrecker.

I get tackled for a living by men who are built like rhinos. I could take the wings off a fly with a football from 30 yards away. (I wouldn’t, but I could.) Being a veteran quarterback means I’m a mentally alert, fine-tuned athletic machine who can make split-second decisions.

Review – Prodigal Son by Jay Crownover

Prodigal Son; The Forever Marked #2 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: January 12, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Single Dad/Friends-to-Lovers/Contemporary Romance

Author: Jay Crownover

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A story with big, real life emotional issues, that Jay Crownover tackled with love and the perfect touch.

This is the first book I’ve read by Jay Crownover and what a lovely story to dive into. In today’s world that is finally taking the shameful cover off of mental health and opening up the discussion and shining light upon the problem we keep trying to bury, Prodigal Son is a book that doesn’t shy away from this topic living front and center in our world. While Remy has a diagnosed mental illness, I’d also say that Hyde suffers from emotional trauma that steers the course of his life. Luckily Hyde has a wonderful family supporting him that he doesn’t end up veering too off course.

From the beginning of this book it’s evident that Hyde cares for Remy, but not at the level that Remy loves him. He enlists in the military for multiple reasons, but one is mainly to leave Remy behind and give her a chance to live her life without him. Kind of harsh, but makes sense to a young kid who has his whole life ahead of him.

When Hyde left, Remy was devastated, but she eventually learned to live without him. Eight years go by and her mental health has improved dramatically, she’s grown to be independent, but now she hears Hyde is moving back to town and with a daughter no less. What will this possibly do to the solid foundation that she has created?

When these two were growing up they were connected at the hips, but during the time they were apart they both grew into different people. Will their connection be the same or have they changed so much that nothing is salvageable?

Synopsis:

When she was a little girl, Remy Archer fell in love with Hyde Fuller at first sight. In fact, he was the only thing she could see for a very long time. For Remy, it never mattered to her that Hyde was always too serious and always seemed so sad. To her, he was the very best, and the center of her entire world. She never dreamed he would let her down when she needed him the most.

Now Remy is a semi-reasonable adult, one with a better understanding of why her intense feelings scared Hyde away when she was at her lowest point. She’s moved on, and if anyone asks she’s perfectly happy with the chaotic and hectic life she’s built. She’s also really proud that she’s still around to experience all the best and worst that surviving something deeply traumatic has to offer. The last thing she needs or wants, is Hyde coming back and taking over her every thought and feeling the way he once did. Unfortunately, they picked the exact same time to come home to search for a little redemption.

When he was a little boy, the instant they met, Hyde Fuller wanted nothing more than to protect Remy Archer from everything, including herself. She gleefully took up every moment of his free time, and every ounce of his patience, as they grew alongside one another. He was so intent on keeping her safe, he didn’t realize how deeply Remy had worked her way into his heart.

Now that Hyde’s facing the biggest challenge and biggest change of his entire life, he deeply regrets walking away from Remy. She was always the one person who always had his back, no matter what. The way Remy loved him used to terrify him, but now, it’s the way he loves her that scares him to death.
Hyde knows he needs Remy in his life, so he can finally figure out how to be the man she always believed him to be. History has a bad habit of repeating itself, and Remy has a knack for turning even the most simple of situations end over end. This time Hyde is determined to stay by her side no matter what, even though his love for Remy is going to change more than his life this time around.

Review – Empire of Sin by Rina Kent

58511140. sy475

Empire of Sin; Empire #2 
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: January 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Mafia/Suspense/Contemporary Romance

Author: Rina Kent

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Worlds merging, stars alining, and secrets uncovered…plus, hotness everywhere…Empire of Sin is pure epicness!! I sat down and this beautiful baby was read cover to cover in one fantastic sitting. I loved, loved, loved it!

Knox Van Doren and Anastasia Sokolov are two characters that pure reading gold. Not only are they plucked from two of Rina’s amazing other series, but on their own they are just brilliantly fantastic together.

Anastasia is escaping from the dark world she was raised in. The bratva leaves little room for hugs and kisses, especially when she is the only daughter of the bratva leader. Taking matters into her own hands she transforms herself and creates a new identity – Jane – and escapes. Somehow destiny put her in the path of Knox Van Doren and she is weak to say no to his tempting allure even when she knows it’s the last place she should be.

Knox doesn’t take kindly to lying. He especially doesn’t like when he’s been duped. When he realizes his last one night stand is working in his building and has completely transformed her appearance, he’s already angry about her lies. This time his little liar won’t escape his warpath. Jane or whoever she says she is is about to learn a lesson.

Is it wrong to say I was giddy excited through this entire book? First of all, Knox and Ana are raging hot right from the start and their chemistry never lets up – that can sometimes be hard to do when characters start off full steam, where do you go-right, but Knox and Ana only seemed to get hotter as the story progressed, their passion burned brighter as their emotions grew. That is truly the best kind of reading.

Next, the cameo appearances had me squealing over and over again. Rina stuck to this book being a standalone and she did a great job of it, you didn’t have to be an expert on Rina’s books to understand who the characters are, but personally, having read her other books it totally made me excited to view these glimpses and have a brief catch up into past character lives.

Lastly, the pure adrenaline of how these two, from completely different worlds could ever make it work. End of day, Ana is a mafia princess and Knox is a lawyer who is used to bringing bad men to justice. How can these two worlds really work? I will not give away one iota on this topic, because I was on the edge of my seat until the very end and that is how it should be.

Everything about this story is page turning magic!!

Synopsis:

My boss. My sin.

I’m not the type who has one-night stands.
It wasn’t supposed to happen, okay?
A couple of drinks and a sinful British accent later and I’m in bed with a stranger.
Of course, I left first thing in the morning because I’m a responsible adult.
An adult who has a new job that I need in order to keep my double life a secret.
Little did I know I’m not, in fact, responsible.
Because the stranger I left in bed? Yeah, he’s not a stranger after all.
He’s my new boss.
Knox Van Doren might have a charming smile, but a true villain lurks beneath it all.
And like any villain, he’ll use my sin against me…

No other books need to be read prior to this.

EMPIRE OF SIN IS A COMPLETE STANDALONE IN THE EMPIRE WORLD!

BLURB

I was sold to my enemies.
You would think that being forced into a loveless marriage to ensure an alliance would be unheard of in this day and age. And in most cases, you would be correct in that assumption.
But not for me.
A cartel princess has no vote on who she can or cannot marry—much less love.
Any decision in my life was forfeited just by being born into the most powerful Mexican cartel there is.
Still, it does sting that I’m to be hand-delivered to the Irish mob and marry into the Kelly family, who my own brother has coined to be nothing more than bloodthirsty savages.
They’re animals, Rosa. Filthy, unscrupulous, vicious animals.
Those were his exact words, yet he still followed our father’s orders to walk me down the aisle, making sure I didn’t run from my obligation.
As if that was even an option.
All my choices were stolen away from me the minute I became another pawn to be used and abused at the hands of evil men.
Which leaves me to question…
Can a rose blossom in the dark?
Or will I have to rely on my thorns to protect me against the fate that’s been bestowed upon me?
Only time will tell if I’ll survive this cursed life or become another lost soul in these cruel and merciless Mafia Wars.
*Binding Rose is a full-length reverse harem novel in the dark and twisted Mafia Wars world.
*Recommended 18+ due to mature language, adult situations and sensitive content.

BLURB

I was sold to my enemies.
You would think that being forced into a loveless marriage to ensure an alliance would be unheard of in this day and age. And in most cases, you would be correct in that assumption.
But not for me.
A cartel princess has no vote on who she can or cannot marry—much less love.
Any decision in my life was forfeited just by being born into the most powerful Mexican cartel there is.
Still, it does sting that I’m to be hand-delivered to the Irish mob and marry into the Kelly family, who my own brother has coined to be nothing more than bloodthirsty savages.
They’re animals, Rosa. Filthy, unscrupulous, vicious animals.
Those were his exact words, yet he still followed our father’s orders to walk me down the aisle, making sure I didn’t run from my obligation.
As if that was even an option.
All my choices were stolen away from me the minute I became another pawn to be used and abused at the hands of evil men.
Which leaves me to question…
Can a rose blossom in the dark?
Or will I have to rely on my thorns to protect me against the fate that’s been bestowed upon me?
Only time will tell if I’ll survive this cursed life or become another lost soul in these cruel and merciless Mafia Wars.
*Binding Rose is a full-length reverse harem novel in the dark and twisted Mafia Wars world.
*Recommended 18+ due to mature language, adult situations and sensitive content.

New Release – Doctor Mistake by J. Saman

Doctor Mistake by J. Saman is now live!

He’s my best friend’s older brother. My boss. And now my new roommate…

In the hospital, death always comes in threes. Apparently, so do mistakes.  Mistake number one? My fiancé, who I just learned is cheating on me. So much for being the strong, in control doctor who’s always on top of her game…  
Mistake number two? Knocking on the wrong door. 
The door I thought still belonged to my best friend now belongs to his older brother, my obnoxious, overly cocky, gorgeous-as-sin attending physician, Carter Fritz.   
The billionaire playboy gives me a place to stay, and a shoulder to cry on. But when he makes me feel seen for the first time in I don’t even know how long, I tell myself I don’t regret what was easily the hottest, most earth-shattering night of my life.   
That is until mistake number three comes along…and I’m staring down at a stick with two pink lines.  
Having a baby at this stage of my residency could cost me everything I’ve worked so hard to build. 
But Carter? He’s undeterred. He doesn’t just want more; he wants it ALL.  
Including me.   
But what happens if following my heart turns out to be my biggest mistake of all?

Review – Binding Rose by Ivy Fox

59595385. sy475

Binding Rose; Mafia Wars
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: January 7, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Reverse Harem/Dark/Mafia Romance

Author: Ivy Fox

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A wickedly and sinfully good book. Ivy did a great job, even if this was her first jump into the mafia realm, she’s no stranger to RH, and these men are usually not the sharing kind. Ivy really worked her magic on capturing that spirit while still creating a unique story that totally fit. It was emotional and hit all the feels for each character.

First and foremost, I need the rest of this series, because…hello!! It was delicious.
The concept, the writing, the plot, the entire romance story…everything was excellent! All the interconnected links to the other mafias; whether bratva, cartel, etc…is intertwined and all twisted up. I desperately need to get my grubby little hands on the other books as I’m intrigued and completely invested in this world!!

Now back to this book specifically, the Kelly men, who are made men with the Irish mob are each unique and Rosa Hernandez, a woman from the Mexican cartel, is the perfect woman to stand by their side.

I love a well written reverse harem where the woman fits so well with each man and is able to adapt, or more appropriately, be herself with each man’s individual personality.

Colin Kelly is this big, giant, stoic soldier who pretty much turns into a marshmallow for Rosa. He’s the beautiful, poetic intellectual half that she needs, while also making her feel safe and secure.

Shay Kelly is the youngest, making him the playful, outgoing Kelly. His affection is exactly what Rosa needs in the lonely world she’s just stepped into, but Rosa is also everything Shay needs for his needy affectionate personality.

Lastly we have Tiernan Kelly, the current head of the Irish mafia. He’s cold, calculating and wants nothing to do with his new bride. However, Rosa continues to shock him with how fierce she is and deserving of the seat by his side.

I loved all the connections and information to the other mafias. I am totally invested and completely intrigued by the rest of this series. I want to know more and even though the other books are written by other authors, I’m sooooo there! Very well done and I’m excited to seek out and finish this series.

Synopsis:

I was sold to my enemies.

You would think that being forced into a loveless marriage to ensure an alliance would be unheard of in this day and age. And in most cases, you would be correct in that assumption.

But not for me.

A cartel princess has no vote on who she can or cannot marry—much less love. Any decision in my life was forfeited just by being born into the most powerful Mexican cartel there is.

Still, it does sting that I’m to be hand-delivered to the Irish mob and marry into the Kelly family, who my own brother has coined to be nothing more than bloodthirsty savages.

They’re animals, Rosa. Filthy, unscrupulous, vicious animals.

Those were his exact words, yet he still followed our father’s orders to walk me down the aisle, making sure I didn’t run from my obligation.

As if that was even an option.

All my choices were stolen away from me the minute I became another pawn to be used and abused at the hands of evil men.

Which leaves me to question…

Can a rose blossom in the dark? Or will I have to rely on my thorns to protect me against the fate that’s been bestowed upon me?

Only time will tell if I’ll survive this cursed life or become another lost soul in these cruel and merciless Mafia Wars.
