Blog Tour – Missing Maverick by Anna Brooks

 Release Date: October 14
 
I was going to love her until my last breath, and she promised to do the same… but she lied.
Cricket McBride packed up without warning, ditching our small town and the life we were going to build together. She left me with tears in her eyes, a kiss on my cheek, and an empty heart that had done nothing but hardened over the years.
My life wasn’t what I thought it would be, but I’d long since accepted it for what it was. I was content with working on my family ranch and being the best father I could. And I was fine with that.
Or so I thought.
When Cricket returned, one look was all it took for me to admit I still cared, but it wasn’t until I saw the marks on her skin and the pain in her soul that I realized just how deep that love went. Because the same hands that held her tight also promised to protect her… and I never broke a promise.

Review – Missing Maverick by Anna Brooks

56221498. sy475

Missing Maverick; Ryder Ranch #3 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 14, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Single Dad/Second Chance/Contemporary Romance

Author: Anna Brooks

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Full of angst, second chances, and lots of family. There is a ton of emotion in this third Ryder Ranch book, so get a box of tissues ready.

There were so many people affected when Cricket McBride left town over a decade ago. She not only was Mavericks girlfriend, she was woven into the very town, the very Ryder family. When Cricket left she left Maverick, his brothers, his sister and other people in their small town. Moving back wouldn’t be easy, but Cricket is returning after nearly fifteen years without a word. While making amends won’t be easy she doesn’t plan to stay hidden and she’ll start with apologizing to the man she hurt the most.

Cricket had no idea Maverick was a father, two times over. While she was living in New York, married to another man, she never envisioned that he would have children with someone else, but the truth is, Maverick hasn’t been living his best life. He’s been wallowing in misery since Cricket left. While he loves his daughters, he doesn’t exactly love the women he fathered them with. Does he picture his life differently…every day. He pictures living with Cricket and raising his children with the woman who still holds his heart, but does he trust Cricket….not a chance.

Can these two pick up the pieces after so much time, so much pain, so much water under the bridge?

Missing Maverick is full of emotions. Cricket played an integral part in so many peoples lives that this book weaves through a lot of the Ryder family as she makes amends. It’s a story about redemption, forgiveness, and second chances.

Synopsis:

Cover Reveal – Link by Anna Brooks

 Release Date: December 9

Even though she knew I’d always catch her, she still had a bad habit of running. As fun as our little game was, I was getting tired of the chase. Especially when one night of combustible passion proved we found the reward we both deserved. 

Once I finally had her right where I wanted, her world was tragically torn apart, and she needed me now more than ever. Honored to be the man to pick up the pieces, I didn’t realize putting her back together would come with a price. Because once she was whole again, she wasn’t the same woman I had fallen in love with.

Blog Tour – Wilder by Anna Brooks

 Release Date: August 26
 

56221487. sy475

I was too young to understand the beauty of what I held in my arms when she crashed into my world.

Frankie Young was never far from my mind, so when she came back into my life after nearly a decade, it was as if no time had passed.

After we reconnected in more ways than one, there was no denying what we had was extraordinary and, I thought, forever. But when she discovered something I’d been hiding, she gave up on us without giving me a chance to explain.

My lies broke her heart, but her walking away shattered what was left of mine. I thought that was the end for us… until Frankie and I found ourselves bound together for life. While we navigated our new found destiny, not only did we have to fight for each other, but we had to protect our future from someone who didn’t want us to have one together.

Review – Wilder by Anna Brooks

56221487. sy475

Wilder; Ryder Ranch #2 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: August 26, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Second Chance Romance

Author: Anna Brooks

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A steamy, multiple chance love story, that began as young love and blossomed into a forever kind of love.

Wilder Ryder and Frankie Young met multiple times throughout their youth and those times had a lasting impact on who they became and who they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with into their adulthood.

These two crossed paths over and over and seemed destined to be together, but obstacles keep getting in their way. They have HUGE chemistry together and Wilder is hawt…dang…he’s super hot, but is attraction enough to keep them together?

I felt like this second Ryder book is deeper in the feels, but that could be the artist nature of Frankie and the sensitive nature of Wilder. As the second child he’s very in tune to his siblings and losing his mother affected them all, but that loss made him dialed in to his feelings and then up front to what he wasn’t willing to lose in the future. However, when he let go, which there was only one spot he actually let go…watch out because Wilder is Wild.

Frankie also took on a lot of responsibility at a very young age. Her sister got pregnant very young and Frankie stepped up and helped out raising her niece, but she never lost her shine and started a business, all at the suggestion of a young boy she met long ago.

These two are magical everytime they are together and I love returning to Ryder Ranch to see old friends and meet new ones.

Synopsis:

Blog Tour – Hunter by Anna Brooks

 Release Date: June 10

I never expected a runaway cow would have led me to the love of my life, but chasing after that heifer turned out to be the best decision I ever made.

Summer Paige was lost, alone, and a mess… just like her nearly totaled car. After a glass of whiskey and a promise to keep her
safe, I convinced her to stay while she got back on her feet.

 

It wasn’t long before the innocent beauty turned my life upside down, and I realized she was everything I didn’t know I wanted.


Life was perfect. Until the day I woke up and
found her gone.


Her letter was supposed to explain why she left, but it did the opposite and made me want her even more. I had to prove that her
past didn’t matter to me because all I wanted was her future. And I intended to
do just that… as soon as I found her.

Hunter; Ryder Ranch #1
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 10, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Cowboy/Small town/Contemporary Romance

Author: Anna Brooks

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I only recently discovered Anna Brooks and I’m already a huge fan! Within the first chapter I was giggling over sassy Summer and swooning over all the swagger Hunter was throwing out. I loved the entire story and couldn’t put it down. This was a big yes…yes….yes!!!

Summer may have landed on Hunter’s property by accident, but it’s truly the first time she’s felt at home in her entire life. It’s hard not to feel warm and accepted in the Ryder family with the small town welcome, but Hunter makes her stay even more inviting.

Hunter has never felt more at ease with any woman before, that is until Summer has an accident with a cow on his property. Offering to let her stay was the easiest choice he’s ever made in his entire life, but getting her to stay may be the hardest thing he’s ever accomplished.

These two fit together seamlessly. Their chemistry is electric and fitting in with the family is flawless. But, what is the big secret that Summer is keeping that could destroy everything?

Hunter is the first in a new series and I’m totally onboard for the rest of the Ryder cowboy brothers to ride to the rescue of their HEA’s. I adore the small town atmosphere, it reminds me so much of where I currently live;  the people, the hospitality, yes, everyone is all up in your business, but it’s also nice because people do care, but I do wish there were hunky cowboys riding to the rescue, thank goodness for books.

I love, love, love this new series and can not wait to return.

Though I tried to deny what I was feeling, she made it impossible not to fall for her… and I fell, hard and fast. The problem? I wasn’t the only one who wanted her all to himself. So not only did I have to protect her from a man intent on doing her harm but I also had to tell my brother we were in love with the same woman.

Review – Break by Anna Brooks

Break; Guarding Her #8 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 6, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Brother-Best Friend/Hero/Suspense Romance

Author: Anna Brooks

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This was my first Anna Brooks novel and I really enjoyed jumping into her world.

While this was a quick read, I thoroughly enjoyed the pacing, the overall plot and all of the characters were highly enjoyable. I’m looking forward to where all of Molly and Brody’s brothers continue to take us in future novels.

Molly is the youngest and the only girl in a family with three older brothers, plus her best friend is the youngest out of five brothers. Molly knows how to find trouble when trouble is to be had. Her entire family worries about her and decides to leave her locked in a jail cell for a night when she’s made one mistake too many.

In walks Brody, pretty much returning to town after a horrible accident and staying with family while he recuperates, and who does he find locked up and needing to be rescued? The one woman he’s never really forgotten.

This adorable meet-cute is actually quite funny and I knew I was hooked not only on this book, but on Anna Brooks from that point forward. What really solidified my new found love for all things Anna Brooks is not only the injected humor, but also the love that both sides of the family showed for Molly and Brody while they worked through their relationship. It squeezed my heart at how supportive they all were. The entire family dynamic is really touching and makes the continued growth of the series something to really look forward to.

Aside from the love that was brewing between Molly and Brody, there is also a suspenseful element to this book. A mystery to solve which made this contemporary romance just that much sweeter.

I was able to read this book as a complete stand alone.

Synopsis:

When I woke up in that hospital bed, I knew my life would never be the same. Returning home broken and unable to do my job anymore, I was lost until she came back into my world.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This anthology is jammed packed with love stories. There is everything from catching up on favorite characters to brand new short stories from 30 authors! A couple of the short snippets, I’m really hoping there will be longer books coming in the future, but until then…here are a few of reviews from some of my favorite authors contained in this anthology!

Arrow and Salem by Saffron A. Kent – Arrow and Salem have made it through a lot, but their wedding is finally here, however, Salem’s sister reaches out one last time. This short is intense. Also, for fans of this series, Saffron gives us a peek into what’s coming up. Squeeeee!!!!

Dash and Holly by Susan Stoker – A new short story that is suspenseful and steamy. It is the perfect story to be read back to back with Riley Edwards, Magic and Stella.

Magic and Stella by Riley Edwards – Magic and Stella and the best friends to Dash and Holly and their love story happens right alongside same timeline. Both short stories are full of suspense and steam and wonderfully written.

There are so many stories and I can truly recommend them all, so jump in and read your favorites or find new favorites. It’s all good.

New Release – Regretting Gabriel by Anna Brooks

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Regretting Gabriel
Series: Reason to Ruin #2
Author: Anna Brooks
Genre: Angsty Rockstar Romance
Release Date: January 9, 2020
BLURB

He was the bad boy of rock-n-roll; cocky, short-tempered, and the sexiest man I’d ever seen. I was just a librarian in a small town. He had no clue who I was, but I knew everything about him. After all, he was the reason I moved across the country.

I never thought he’d know my name, let alone whisper it while he held me tight and made me forget about the agony of my past. He was my protector, my reason, my calm before the storm… but nothing good lasts forever, and Gabriel Hunter was no exception.

EXCERPT

My heart has held a place for him since I was fifteen years old. I never thought I’d actually be friends with him, let alone friends who held hands.
When we get to the library, I unfortunately have to unclasp our fingers so I can get my keys and open the door. I turn to tell him thank you when he pushes the door open and motions for me to precede him. “Ga—”
“Go.” He interrupts me, and instead of arguing, I go in and turn on the lights. After I set my purse beneath my desk, I stand fully and twitch at the shock of seeing him so close. “I’m gonna take off. You done at six?”
“You don’t need to wa—”
“Cady, baby, I don’t do anything I don’t want to. So stop telling me what I don’t need when I know exactly what I want.”
My breath freezes in my throat at the implication.
“So I’ll ask again, are you off at six?”
Unable to form a sentence, I simply nod.
And then he leans forward, just slightly, and I jump when his hand slides through my hair and his fingers cradle my head. His lips ever so gently brush against my cheek, and he glides his hand out of my hair, down my neck, and halfway over my collarbone before he lifts it again and cups my jaw, then runs his thumb across my lower lip. “Later, sugar.”

AUTHOR BIO

The first time Anna tried to read a romance novel, her hair caught on fire when she leaned over a candle to sneak a peek at her mom’s Harlequin. She thinks being hit on the head with a shirtless Fabio until the smoke cleared is what sparked the flame for her love of romance.

Anna was born in Wisconsin, but currently lives in Texas with her husband and two boys. She writes sexy romance that always has a happy ending and loves bringing characters back for cameos. Less than six degrees of separation connects any of her novels.

When she’s not writing or reading, she’s watching reruns of her favorite romcoms, talking to her dog and cat like they’re human, eating carbs, or practicing hand lettering.

She loves to hear from readers and can be found on social media as @annabrooksauth everywhere.

AUTHOR BIO 

Anna began writing when she thought the world would want to hear her sick lyrics through song. Since then, she’s realized her childhood dream wasn’t so far-fetched, just misguided. Now she writes romance with real emotions and happy endings. If Anna isn’t writing or reading, she can be found by a space heater painting her nails and drinking a ridiculous amount of Diet Dr Pepper. She also likes to hang out with her husband and two boys. If it wasn’t for them, she wouldn’t ever leave the house. Anna was born in Wisconsin but now lives in the Evergreen State.
