BLURB

Kyle James cashed in my V card and then disappeared like I was the finishing act in a magic show.

I vowed to hate my best friend, turn the longing and secret obsession with him into toxic hate and maybe a poorly chosen tattoo.

But as the years passed, I let go of any notions I’d ever see him again…until he sauntered on campus my senior year as a new transfer student.

All of Rake Forge was obsessed with his inked skin and that darkness that seemed to seep out of every methodical step he took.

I wasn’t. I knew the boy underneath, and while I wanted to know where he’d been…I would never ask.

Until my dad needed a favor. His team required a way in with my ex-best friend and his contacts.

I knew Kyle would see through it…but I went anyway.

Suddenly, my world, made of black and white was bleeding color…and he was at the center, daring me to trust him.

My heart, blind and foolish chose to not only trust but to love him too.

I really should have known better.

I was merely a way in for my father, and for the man, I loved…I was just a way out.

Just the same, here I am, ready to start another year at Rake Forge University, pregnant and currently homeless.

And it looks like Iโ€™m not the only one whoโ€™s returned.

Juan Hernandez, my sisterโ€™s best friend, saunters through campus with that granite jaw and those raven strands of hair kissing his brow, his whiskey eyes searing everyone to ash.

Iโ€™ve avoided him for months, but the second he sees me, the jig is up.

The first thing he does is steal my lips in a ravishing kiss.

A punishment.

The second thing he does is rescue me from sleeping in my car.

A lesson.

Living with him will never work, not with how brash his words are, how hot his constant stare is, or how he touches me.

His fingers brand my skin as if he owns me, and on some level, I know he wants to.

What he doesnโ€™t know is that I belong to another manโ€ฆand come my twenty-first birthday, Iโ€™ll return to him whether I want to or not.

Review – King of Hearts by Ashley Munoz

58371454. sy475

King of Hearts; Rake Forge University #2ย 
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: November 5, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Mafia/Enemies to Lovers/New Adult Romance

Author: Ashley Munoz

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A slow burn, with a ton of tension between two frenemies in a race against time.

Juan and Taylor have known each other for the past several years. Juan is the best friend of Taylor’s sister and while Juan has an easy going personality around everyone else in his life, there is an instant friction that burns hotter than the sun when these two are in a room together.

Taylor knows she’s abrasive, direct, doesn’t make friends easily. Her upbringing didn’t allow her to get close to anyone so she instantly pushes people away. Juan is no different, even though she’s had a crush on him for years. She just knows better that to act on said crush since she’s already promised to killer on her twenty-first birthday.

While reading the first book in the Rake Forge series will definitely give you insight into Taylor and Juan’s characters and how Taylor ended up in her current condition, the plot itself is a standalone. Their romance is a slow burn, but these two burn bright with chemistry from the very beginning. They have enemies to lovers down pat and perfect the push and pull in a frustrating…JUST ADMIT YOU LOVE EACH OTHER ALREADY! LOL

Juan is pulled to Taylor in a way he doesn’t understand and yet he continually pushes her away to save his own heart. Taylor also can’t help how she feels, she’s been attracted to Juan for years, but the moment she remembers what’s in store for her as her birthday approaches she pushes him away. It’s a story that broke my heart over and over at their circumstances, hoping they would find an answer to their problem.

A great addition to the Rake Forge series with lots of passion, emotion, and character development.

Synopsis:

Reminders were for traitors.
My father used to whisper that in my ear when I was young, while the still smoking gun dangled at his side.
I understood the rules, and what was expected of me, even as my mother made the deal.
I had absolute freedom to do as I pleased, as long as I obeyed:
Return to his home at twenty-one, do not make him come looking…and do not jeopardize my impending union with Markos Marino.

Now, months away from my twenty-first birthday, and I’m not only running out of time and creative ways to avoid my upcoming marriage, but I also have a bit of a situation that I can’t exactly hide. It’s one to surely come with a reminder…because in this, I haven’t been loyal…and I most certainly haven’t followed the rules.

*This is Book 2 in the Rake Forge University Series*

Review – Wild Card by Ashley Munoz

57328477. sy475

Wild Card; Rake Forge University #1
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: August 12, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Sports Romance

Author: Ashley Munoz

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Angsty love, twists and turns, a big gesture, AND a deep soul connection…sigh…Wild Card brought it all and it was perfect. Ashley Munoz wrote fantastic characters that pulled me in and made me fall in love. Wild Card is a winner!!

Mallory needs a fantastic story for her journalism class to get a chance at an internship and when an idea lands in her lap she finds it hard to refuse the opportunity of a lifetime, but how far is she willing to go to get her story?

Decker wants revenge on the man who has ruined his future, but to do so he has to take something Elias covets. How low is Decker willing to lower his moral table in order to get his revenge?

She needs a big story, he needs a revenge move, they both lie to get what they want, but will it end in disaster?

Wild Card is soooo incredibly good, the entire story is angsty and twisty and plotted to perfection. Both Mallory and Decker have their reasons for achieving their goals and while they are both remain steadfast in obtaining their goals even when their emotions get involved neither give up.ย  I love that Ashley didn’t allow either character to drop their personality traits or change completely just because they began to catch the feels, it kept the story cohesive especially with the unexpected ending, but it made my heart race up until the very end.

This is the first book in the Rake Forge University world and I can hardly wait to return to read more about the other players and friends.

and completely untouchable.

ย 

Their parties were impossible to get into unless you were handpicked, and I was not.

ย 

Even still, I had a solid plan.

ย 

I would not get caught, definitely not seduced, and absolutely wouldnโ€™t die. That is until I was

stopped and rendered totally speechless by a pair of mossy eyes.

ย 

He lured me in, close enough to feel the press of his mouth against my skin and the heat of his

hands on my body. Undoubtedly, I was a sheep headed straight for the slaughter, which only

proved true when he called my bluff.

ย 

With him holding all the cards for my future success, and in order to salvage what remained of

my dream, I did the only thing I could.

ย 

I made a deal with a devil.

Review – Only Once by Ashley Munoz

56694452

Only Onceย 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: February 12, 2021

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Author: Ashley Munoz

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I once was told that trust is like a china cup, once broken you could be repaired, but those fissures would always remain. That analogy is one I’ve never forgotten and Only Once is a lot like that fragile cup.

Bex and Ryan have ten years of broken trust between them. As much as they want to build something new, that shattered foundation is what lies beneath them and they have to work on building up a stronger future by letting go of their past.

It can be the hardest thing in the world, forgiving and then forgetting. Our nature tells us not to forget so we don’t make the same mistake, so forgetting how someone hurt us is extremely tough. Bex and Ryan aren’t perfect in their past wrongs, and neither are meek and mild, which makes the moving past their mistakes tougher than some, but their stubbornnessย also works in their favor when it comes to getting what they want, which also happens to be a second chance.

Only Once is completely heartfelt, with all of the emotions you’d want in a second chance book, but it also has the cutest children and the most degrading job for a working adult. All of this bringsย  the emotional moments back up to a smiling high and then my cheeks flush when Ryan and Bex bring the heat.

Somewhere along the way, these two might just figure out that a perfectly imperfect relationship works, but your heart will be in your throat until they do.

Synopsis:

Breaking news: Hollywoodโ€™s biggest heartthrob, Ryan Prince, was caught vacationing in his hometown, but whoโ€™s the mystery girl?

No, I hadnโ€™t heard that Ryan Prince was staying at the very resort I had just started working at.

If I had, maybe I would have called in sick.

On second thought, maybe I wouldnโ€™t have, because I really needed that paycheck. Being a single mother and having a lapse in child support had made me that desperate.

Still, I would have rather avoided the circus that rolled into Hawk Tail Resort and the man who sauntered in with it.

Tall with those perfectly rounded shoulders made for throwing footballs and winning championships, he carried himself in that regal way that told everyone in the room he was all talent and power.

All these years later and he was still that same gorgeous man I left behind in college.

Except now he wasnโ€™t gracing the gridiron unless it was for a movie role.

I assumed he wouldnโ€™t even recognize me, not with the actress on his arm and the crowd pressing in around him.

But when his unexpecting glare lands on me, the last ten years seem to slam back into us at once.

Ryan Prince didnโ€™t just recognize me; the angry tilt of those lips on that too perfect face told me he remembered exactly what I did when I left.

I thought maybe this was a gift, a way to put the past to restโ€ฆbut the look on his face told me he had plans to dig up everything that was unfinished between us.

It had me wondering if heโ€™d buried anything at all. Maybe heโ€™d just carried all the dirt in a little glass jar, waiting for this moment to shatter it all at my feet.

The summer was about to end, but it felt like my penance for the last decade was about to begin.

The Rest of Me by Ashley Munozโ€™s is LIVE! One click today!

BLURB

Death never simply settles for the life it claims.

Itโ€™s greedy.

It stole all of our lives that night and while it put my husband in the ground, it left my four children and me behind.

After an ugly year of grief, something had to change.

My sister suggested open spaces, big skies and fresh air in the heart of Wyoming.

We settled into our shared estate the best we could, until I met my new neighbor.

Arrogant, bossy and rude; Reid was easily the worst person Iโ€™d ever met. I’d decided to write him off entirely until I realized he was the only local horse instructor.

Iโ€™d heard that if I could get my kids onto a horse, theyโ€™d start to heal.

Desperation had me creating an alliance with him.

Envy had me craving the connection he had with them.

Distracted by the newness of our situation, I missed how close his demons danced to my ghosts. While I was ignorantly letting him take my heart, it was too late to realize . . .

Heโ€™d already stolen it once before.

Review – The Rest of Me by Ashley Munoz

The Rest of Meย (Standalone)
by Ashley Munoz (Author)

This review is from: October 13, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ
Heat Level:๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Two broken souls, correction six broken hearts who need healing. This book is more than just a love story. It’s about a family who lost a father and husband and a man who lost everything. These six struggling people need each other more than they realize. When they eventually meet and connect through each of their own individual ways it’s a very touching story.

Layla moves with her four children to Wyoming after her husband passes away. Partly to be closer to her sister, but also to move away from the memories that haunted her and her children on a daily basis. What she didn’t know when she moved into her current home is how closely it connected to her neighbors home, but also how intricate he would be in mending her and her children’s lives.

Reid is a horse instructor, one that his new neighbor and her four kids obviously need. It doesn’t take long for Layla to realize she needs help, but initially it’s only to spend time with her children teaching them about horse care and how to ride, but as time goes along what he desires is more time with her. She is someone he has no right to want, but he is drawn to her like he hasn’t been drawn to anyone in a very long time. Given his past, he should stay away, but he loves her kids and it doesn’t take long until he comes to care their mother too.

This book isn’t your typical fluffy fairytale romance. It’s real and emotional with lots of ups and downs. There are moments that made me want to scream at Layla for not having those fluffy in your hearts eyes feelings. She is guilt ridden for feeling anything for someone else beyond her dead husband when I felt she should be falling head over heels for the sexy man sitting right next to her and yet in reality this is a very real situation. Layla had four living proofs of her dead husband looking at her, counting on her, and reminding her everyday that he was gone. I honestly couldn’t imagine what that is like, but Ashley does a great job writing about it.

On the flip side Reid is patient and kind and one of those men you fall very easily for. He is so patient waiting for Layla that at times you forgot about him and his backstory. What was so bad that had him hiding back in Wyoming? What is his secret? All I’m going to say is, I did not see it coming.

EXCERPT

There was an awkward silence that hung between us. I was looking at Reidโ€™s bare toes, from where he had one foot kicked over the other, angling his body in the doorway, still leaving room for me to pass if I wanted to. I wasnโ€™t looking at him though, not at his face and the longer I waited the more I knew he wanted me to.

Up my eyes went from strong calves to narrow hips, to a full six pack with ridges and lines that I had never seen on another human up close before. Up to those solid pecks and burly biceps, further north to that firm jaw and full lips, until finally I landed on those mossy eyes, narrowed on me, under a set of dark eyebrows. I took in a quick, sharp breath. The air between us was suddenly charged and in desperate need of a caution sign so no one would dare engage the empty space between it.

โ€œMeans a lot to us, or you?โ€ Reid rasped, low and menacing, like he needed my clarification as badly as he needed his next breath.

I blinked and prayed my voice would make it past my lips, โ€œboth.โ€

He took a step forward, engaging that empty, charged space.

I wanted to retreat but retreating was a form of surrender and I wasnโ€™t ready to do that with him.

Suddenly, he was toe to toe with me and just inches from my face. There was nothing but darkness and decisions between us and my heart thrashing around in my chest at what might happen if the wrong ones were made.

โ€œLayla,โ€ Reid whispered, bringing his hand up to the shell of my ear. I closed my eyes tight, as though I could just wait him out and heโ€™d disappear. That same hand traveled to my waist and pulled me a fraction closer to him, until he was kissing my forehead. An imprint from his lips seared the space below my hair line. I didnโ€™t open my eyes, I just waited. A second later, I felt the air swish between us and a whispered, โ€œyouโ€™re welcome.โ€ I opened my eyes to see the door closed and Reid gone.
