Review – Cruel Devious Heir #1 by Caitlyn Dare

Cruel Devious Heir #1; Heirs of All Hallows #3
(#1 within a duet, #3 within a series)

Publication Date: March 2, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Book Duet/New Adult/Dark/Opposites Attract/Bully Romance

Author: Caitlyn Dare

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
An opposites attract at its best! The Heirs have been challenged by none other than the Head Girl, Tallulah Darlington, that means it’s gloves off at All Hallows and Tally needs to watch her back.

Oakley and Tally have tons of friction throughout this book, which is one aspect of Tally’s fight. The other part of it is she’s always stood up against injustice and to her the Heirs are one boys club of patriarchal douchecanoes. She wants to shut down the system and turn their clubhouse into a mental health and wellness clinic, something that could benefit the entire student population, not just a few entitled rich boys. As great as this sounds, and it truly does, sadly the student population sides with the Heirs and their partying ways, that means Tally is enemy #1 and the Heirs only have to sit back and watch the rest of All Hallows do their dirty work for them.

While Tally gets bullied by basically everyone around her, she’s also fighting Oakley on a personal and emotional basis. This girl is one of the strongest girls that Caitlyn has written yet and that’s saying something because she’s written some really amazing women. Tally seriously doesn’t back down from anyone and I love that about her. While I do question her digging her heels in at times, I also commend her for sticking to her guns, not many people have her kind of courage and I like that spirit.

Oakley took a bit longer to fall into his groove. His character development was a slower process, but isn’t that the same for most men in our lives, late emotional bloomers. While I disliked Oakley, even back in his sisters book, I actually like that it progressed to me warming up to him throughout the course of this book and I actually like the guy now. Who knew that would happen?!

This is just the first part of Tally and Oakley’s story and it does end on a bit of an emotional cliffhanger so I’m looking forward to finding out what happens next.

Synopsis:
A brand new dark bully romance series from bestselling author Caitlyn Dare.

Full blurb coming soon…

Cruel Devious Heir: part one is a dark high school bully romance. If possessive, rugby playing alphaholes aren’t your thing, you probably won’t like this book!

Blog Tour – Glove Save by Teagan Hunter

Glove Save by Teagan Hunter is now live!

I’ve been told I’m the grumpiest goalie in the league, and that may be the case, but who cares when I’m also killing it this season? The Carolina Comets are currently on a record-breaking run, and I intend to keep it that way.

This means the last thing I need is distractions, but my mother didn’t get that memo. She’s getting married, and after the fiasco I caused at her last wedding, I’m required to bring a date.

That would be easy, except for one little thing: I don’t date.

So why is the only person I want to take a single mom who can’t stand me?

We’re a horrible match, and it makes no sense that I’d be into her. But the more time we spend together, the more it’s starting to look like this might be one game I can’t win.

Blog Tour – Sinful Knight by Tracy Lorraine

♞ NEW RELEASE♞

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you a new dark mafia, high school bully romance story set in the Knight’s Ridge Empire world.

The night we met, she left behind a lot more than just her shoes on my bedroom floor.

She left an impression.
A lasting memory burned into my brain. It teases me… tortures me.
Months have passed since that night. I’ve tried a million and one ways to get her out of my head.
But she’s always there. Haunting me. Stealing my sinful thoughts. Fuelling my darkest desires.
I warned her to stay away. But I didn’t mean it— not really.
Before I can make her mine, I’ll have to find her. With nothing more than her red heels, it’s impossible.
Until I stumble across her in the exact same place I found her the first time… and the last place I expected her to be.
She didn’t heed my warning.
And she’s about to learn to take my threats more seriously.
I want to claim her, but she’s not mine to keep. So I’ll take what I can get, and be the one to walk away this time.

My mistake was thinking I would always know where to find her. I just hope this time I’m not too late.

Review – The Boy I Once Hated by Ivy Fox and C.R. Jane

The Boy I Once Hated; Love and Hate #1
(#1 within a duet)

Publication Date: February 26, 2023

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Stepbrother/Enemies-to-Lovers/Bully Romance

Author: C.R. Jane and Ivy Fox

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Oh my freakin’ heart!! The angsty ups and downs! I am in turmoil 💔❤️‍🩹

My bleeding soul needs a few days to recover from Noah and Sky, but then I will need answers from that cliffhanger.

The tumultuous story begins with a broken Noah and honestly if it wasn’t for this heartbreaking moment in time, all of the dastardly things he does later because he’s so hollow inside wouldn’t make him the least bit redeemable. It helps to know he’s human with feelings and that he’s not just a heartless dic$. I constantly went back and forth between hating him and loving him. The duet is titled super appropriately 😂

Skylar’s life was uprooted, which is always bad enough for a teen in high school, but the circumstances in her family life make it ten times worse. She’s bullied, she’s feeling alone, she just wants to graduate and get away. Sky broke my heart. The relationship between her and Noah is toxic at best, but that line when crossed…oh my ❤️‍🔥

This is the first part of Noah and Sky’s story which has already dug a place in my heart and I can’t wait to finish it in the second half of this angsty duet.

Synopsis:
I’ve always heard there’s a fine line between love and hate.

No one told me that line could destroy me.

Noah Fontaine.

King of the school.

My living nightmare.

The object of my fantasies.

My new stepbrother.

I did whatever it took to survive him.

Every day he took more of me.

I just didn’t expect him to take my heart.

Because of the boy I once hated, I’d never be the same girl again.

Review – Glove Save by Teagan Hunter

Glove Save; Carolina Comets #6
(#6 within a series)

Publication Date: February 23, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Sports/Romantic Comedy/Grumpy-Snarky/Single Mom Romance

Author: Teagan Hunter

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
What do you get when you mix a grumpy hero with a prickly, single mom? Pure magic!! Glove Save was reading greatness!!

The jabs and banter between Jacob Greer and Stevie Thomas was true literary porn for my reading pleasure as they were both full of antagonistic barbs. There is nothing I love better than well written sarcastic wit and Greer and Stevie had no trouble sparring in that arena, plus it helped build the slow burning tension between them to great heights, until it finally boiled over in a raging inferno. A kinky, blazing inferno. Who knew these two would be so yummy?

While Jacob is completely up front that he will never, ever fall in love, Stevie is pretty much on this train of thought given her current ten year old daughter and hectic life. While neither will say no to having some fun, unfortunately for Stevie it just doesn’t happen very often given that she has said ten year old. It’s always the ones to run from such notions that end up falling the hardest, am I right??

However, this story isn’t really about Greer and Stevie, it’s really about Macie, Stevie’s ten year old daughter. She’s a spitfire and I totally love her. She gives Greer grief and is completely true to herself. You can’t leave this book without completely falling for this great kid.

Glove Save is another hockey goal win for the Carolina Comets as I continue to be hooked on this series.

Synopsis:
I’ve been told I’m the grumpiest goalie in the league, and that may be the case, but who cares when I’m also killing it this season? The Carolina Comets are currently on a record-breaking run, and I intend to keep it that way.

This means the last thing I need is distractions, but my mother didn’t get that memo. She’s getting married, and after the fiasco I caused at her last wedding, I’m required to bring a date.

That would be easy, except for one little thing: I don’t date.

So why is the only person I want to take a single mom who can’t stand me?

We’re a horrible match, and it makes no sense that I’d be into her. But the more time we spend together, the more it’s starting to look like this might be one game I can’t win.

GLOVE SAVE is a standalone hockey romcom. There’s a grumpy goalie who likes to argue with a ten-year-old, a single mom, lots of fun banter, and STEAM galore!

Review – A Tangle of Awful by K. Webster

A Tangle of Awful; Park Mountain #2
(standalone within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: February 21, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Ménage/Forbidden/Step-family/Age-Gap/Enemies-to-Lovers Romance

Author: K. Webster

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
What a delicious tangled web of storytelling!!

The Park family tree is ka-ra-zzzzie and I love how tangled up it continues to get! I should know better than to go into one of Webster’s books with expectations because she always goes left when I think she will go right and I love those mind blowing moments. The Tangle of Awful was nothing like I expected and it was everything better than I could have wanted!!

There is a ton of tension between Spencer and Aubrey and also with Hugo and Aubrey. She is torn between both Park men in completely different ways. Spencer Park is Aubrey’s stepbrother and he’s a total jerk, in the best ways ;). Hugo Park is Aubrey’s stepfather and he’s the caring adult in her life that she’s never really had. As each relationship develops they are totally different and I loved how they were independent from each other, even though each Park man was with the same woman.

Aubrey hasn’t really had stability in her life, except for a few years that she lived with the Parks when she was younger. She moved away, but after her father kicks her out and she has no where else to go she heads back to the one place she’d felt safe, the Parks. Aside from navigating her new relationships with the men in her life, it isn’t the mess of her heart that has her doubting moving back, mysterious things are happening and she refuses to let her family get hurt because she appears to be cursed with an awful life.

Synopsis:
From USA Today Bestselling Author K Webster comes a new steamy age-gap, enemies-to-lovers “why choose” forbidden romance!

He’s a successful attorney with a secret craving for his too-young stepdaughter.
He wants her badly. But his wicked son wants her too…

Love is an illusion.
In my world, collecting the shiniest trophies is what I do.
Beautiful wife. Swanky home. Expensive cars. Successful firm. Future attorney general.
Add in the Park family name and I’m the envy of every man in town.
True love, however, was never attainable, no matter how much I secretly wanted it.

The desire to be loved isn’t my only secret.
My wife is missing.
With my life under scrutiny as I run for office, I’m finding it difficult to lie away her whereabouts. People are starting to notice. My political opponent. Her best friend. And worst of all, my wife’s daughter, Aubrey.

Aubrey is finally back home after two long years with her dad, but she’s asking questions I don’t have answers to. Yet, that’s not all she’s doing…
She’s invading my thoughts and my heart, driving me insane with her beauty and vulnerability.

I want her.
She’s barely legal and my wife’s daughter.
Forbidden and morally wrong.
I can’t have her. I can’t.

My son, though, doesn’t live by the same code I do.
He wants her too.
But not to love…to destroy.

I’ll risk everything to keep him from her.
Even if this tangle of awful costs me my reputation, my campaign, and my son.

***This is a complete mfm standalone novel with a happily ever after. Characters are of legal age and there is no romantic involvement between blood relations. ***

S. Massery has revealed the covers for Devious Obsession!

  

Releasing March 23, 2023

“If you want to stay, you have to play the game…”

Steele O’Brien is everything I hate in hockey players.
He’s cocky, brooding, antagonistic.

I played his game, learned his secrets.
But that was before I found out he’s my new stepbrother.

Now we’re at college together, and I can’t escape him.
Or his demons.

It seems that, for him, the game isn’t over.
He says I’m his to play with. His to torment.
And he’s determined to not only get under my skin, but carve his name into it.

Blurb:

I entered into a bargain—choosing my mate over my freedom.

But I underestimated the crowned prince who took me. His touch like venom. His vengeance lethal.

He craves a power I no longer hold, and he’ll sacrifice every part of me until he gets it.

But I don’t belong to him. I belong to his brother.

His brother who will come for me, consequences be damned.

My fate is entangled between two princes—one who craves my power, the other who covets me—and I have more to lose than I ever imagined.

War rages in a game between queens, and I have become their pawn. But I will fight for my life, for my mate, and he will raze kingdoms to get me back.

Read Kay’s Review: Meet Hate Love

BLURB
An act of hysterical blackmail between two work enemies kicks off this flirty and utterly ridiculous laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from USA TODAY bestselling author Stevie J. Cole.

I hated Vance Morgan, my arrogant office mate, more than anyone in the world. And yet, there I was, on a Paris-bound flight, cramped in the small space by his six-foot-four, arrogant frame.

And why?

Because after the sexy, thieving bastard stole my dream assignment, I found out he had a Lonely Fans page. One dedicated to pictures of his man-meat stick in front of world monuments. So, I did what any rational woman in my situation would do.

I blackmailed his hot, article-swindling ass. The problem was, he blackmailed me right back. And thanks to him and his can’t- lose-attitude, we ended up stuck together, Traveling around Europe while coming up with tips and tricks on how to survive vacationing with someone you hate. Easy. Like I said, I despised the man. Or at least I thought I did…

After a few days of tiny hotel rooms and steamy tension, everything between us came to a head—a really big, massive, enticing head.

Now the only tip I’m desperately seeking is how to survive falling for my used-to-be enemy.

Cover Reveal - 2023, Year of Releases - 2023

Cover Reveal – Iced Out by Veronica Eden

 Release Date: Spring 2023
💚 TROPES 💚
🏒 Hockey Romance
🏒 Rival’s Sister / Brother’s Rival
🏒 Boy Obsessed
🏒 Forced Proximity
🏒 He 👏 Falls 👏 First
🏒 Not actually a trope, but…no third act breakup!

 

Dancing on bartops means the night is going great. Exiting the bar hauled over the shoulder of Heston University’s infamous hockey captain? Not my idea of a good time.

 

But I needed an escape route to evade my would-be knight’s biggest rival…my brother.

Easton Blake is the perfect reminder of why I avoid hockey players. He’s cocky, frustratingly sexy, and accustomed to every girl in his orbit falling for his charm. With his sultry smile that tells me he knows all the ways to make girls come undone with his touch, I’m almost the next score on his stats.
Except I have no time for distractions when I’m focused on graduating early. Gaining Easton’s attention was never part of my plans. Of course, from the moment he catches me shaking my assets on the bar, he decides I’m his next goal.
Instead of sticking to my own rules, I do something I shouldn’t: I dare him to try.
Easton’s never met a challenge he wouldn’t accept. He makes it clear he won’t be iced out without convincing me to give him a chance.
I swore off hockey players for a reason. If I go there again, can I trust Easton Blake not to break my heart?

Review – Soulless Saint by Elena Lawson

Soulless Saint (Kings of Kilborn University, #1)

Soulless Saint; Kings of Kilborn University #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: January 26, 2023

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark/Reverse Harem/Gang/Enemies-to-Lovers Romance

Author: Elena Lawson

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I hate to call this a spinoff to the Thorn Valley Crows because Becca completely owned this book right along with the Kings of Kilborn. Soulless Saint has a totally different feel all the way around and I loved every second of it!

If you are coming into the Saint world blind, which you can jump into this book without having read The Crows, just know that Becca refers to her past from living in Thorn Valley and her friends do pop up a few times. Aside from that Becca Hart has pretty much shed everything from her time in Thorn Valley, leaving everything behind and starting over with a second chance at life in SoCal. Living life on her terms which also means no bad boys or bad decisions. However, bad boys and decisions seem to find her like a homing beacon.

Hardin and Kaleb St. Vincent are the Kings of Kilborn and everyone follows what they say, everyone but Becca Hart that is. Becca is used to being around lethal men and when Hardin and Kaleb walk in and think they can upset her new life…well, she refuses to bow down to the kings. Call them intrigued and instantly infatuated. Their back and forth is great. Becca is one fierce girl having learned quite a bit from her bada$$ best friend, Ava Jade. Becca has come a long way from the naive, rich girl we all met back in AJ’s first book and I am so here for it!

While this is still a dark, enemies-to-lovers, mafia book, it still had a brighter glow to it than the world Becca came from. I don’t really know how to put a pin on what I mean, except to say this; there is basically an opposite to everything or everyone within this book which seemed to balance the darkness. For instance, Kaleb and Hardin are total opposites. Kaleb is very outgoing, playful and almost tenacious in his extravertiness. If he wants you, he will get you and you will enjoy every second of it. Hardin barely says two words to anyone, even his own brother, but he’s loyal to almost a fault, hence his tenacity is focused inward. Spending time with him will be intense and you may make it out alive…but you also might be in a pleasure coma. Can you just imagine the reverse harem now!?! Fanning myself!!

The ending gave a great twist which totally left me panting for more. I can hardly wait for the next book!!

About Guarded

Jameson Bates

I have a secret. We all have secrets. I’m nothing special.

It just so happens, however, that my sworn enemy also knows my secret.

He’s the absolute worst person to know this, and there’s nothing I can do about it.

What he does with this information is totally out of my hands and completely in his.

This is why I’ve never let anyone in. I don’t trust easily. I keep to myself.

I’m closed off. Angry.

Guarded.

Garrison Dixon

I shouldn’t have seen what I did.

I shouldn’t know what I do.

But how Bates can think I would ever say anything is beyond me.

Everyone thinks I’m just a big, dumb football player with nothing more to him.

The truth is I’ll never say a word about what I witnessed. I don’t care about it the way he thinks I do. I wouldn’t hurt him.

And I’d let him know that—all of it—if he wasn’t so damn . . .

Review – Filthy Jealous Heir #2 by Caitlyn Dare

Filthy Jealous Heir: Part Two: A brother's best friend dark bully romance (Heirs of All Hallows’ Book 2)

Filthy Jealous Heir Part 2; Heirs of All Hallows’ #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: January 12, 2023

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark/Bully Romance

Author: Caitlyn Dare

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Fast paced, with great emotional ups and downs from both Olivia and Reese.

There is a lot to unpack in this book, but it never wavered in the intensity. While Olivia and Reese’s HEA was tied up, The Heirs still have more story to tell and I loved getting to know just a bit more about some of the secondary characters who will return in more books.

While Olivia and Reese circle around their feelings and what that could mean for a future, it also meant that Reese had to fess up to everything, but I loved how the story played out for Reese to make amends, which not only included Olivia, but also his friends.

Also, about that future, it involved part of this fantastic girl crew that Olivia surrounded herself with. One being Reese’s fiancé, Abigail, and another included a fierce girl that grates on every nerve of Olivia’s twin brother, Oakley. Everything about their whole dynamic is delicious. This girl group, aside from the relationship that brewed between Reese and Olivia, totally made the book worth reading.

Synopsis:
A brand new dark bully romance series from bestselling author Caitlyn Dare.

He’s filthy. He’s jealous… and he’s determined to make her his.

Reese Whitfield-Brown has been lied to his entire life. But he’s also been lying to himself.

What started as a game to ruin Olivia’s reputation quickly turned into obsession. And now he needs her in a way he doesn’t understand.

Kind. Compassionate. Strong. She sees past all his bullshit.

Reese wants her even though he knows he shouldn’t. Because he can’t be what Olivia needs and when she discovers his true reason for getting close to her, she’ll never look at him the same again.

But Olivia is determined to break down Reese’s defenses and be there for him no matter what.

Because some people deserve a second chance.

Especially, the boy she loves … even when she shouldn’t.

Filthy Jealous Heir: part two is a dark high school bully romance. If possessive, rugby playing alphaholes aren’t your thing, you probably won’t like this book! It should be read after part one.

About To Reject A Mate

Welcome to Redwood University, where the creatures that go bump in the night really do exist… and they’re hiding in plain sight.

Attending a small college in the middle of nowhere was never my plan, but when I was offered free tuition and the promise of an excellent education, that plan changed.

It would’ve been nice to know I would be one of the only humans on campus.

It’d be even better if a certain bossy shifter didn’t claim me as his fated mate.

Alexei is arrogant, acrimonious, and the worst A-word of them all: an alpha.

But I can’t deny the way my body responds to him. No matter how many warning flags are waving around in my head, we gravitate toward one another. It’s primal. Passionate.

Painful.

Because regardless of what the fates think, or the supposed destiny we share… Alexei and I could never be.

So, if Alexei won’t reject our bond… I’ll have to do it for him.

*To Reject a Mate is the first book in the Redwood University Trilogy. It cannot be read as a standalone and ends in a cliffhanger. If possessive heroes, who occasionally turn into wolves, and sassy, headstrong heroines are your jam, you’ve come to the right place. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride into this exciting new paranormal world.

Review – Guarded by Nicole Dykes

Guarded; Kensley Panthers #2
(standalone within a series)

Publication Date: January 9, 2023

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/MM/Enemies-to-Lovers/Sports Romance

Author: Nicole Dykes

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Wow, I just love Nicole’s books! Consistently, they are filled with big emotional punches, steamy passion, and I could read them forever.

I love a good enemies to lovers story, but more than that, I totally melt for characters who were once enemies find that common ground on whatever subject matter they finally connect over and then the chemistry between them totally explodes!! I mean seriously, there is nothing like the bubbling and brewing build up to that explosion, but when it happens it’s always amazing. I need to say that both boys were strong, and different, but nevertheless strong in how they navigated their paths throughout this story. I loved it.

Jameson and Garrison are at odds, going all the way back to kindergarten. They have never really been friends, even though they live in a small town so there isn’t much room to escape one another, which is the bigger problem when it comes to their sexuality. Garrison stumbles upon Jameson kissing another boy and because Garrison is known to be loud and sort of obnoxious, it only infuriates Jameson more that it was Garrison who discovered him. However, for Garrison he was happy it was him since he’s holding his own secret and he would never out someone when it’s their own secret to share.

These two misunderstand one another for so long that when the walls finally come down – or that explosion finally happens – while it’s a moment of steaminess, it’s also a little heartbreaking. Nicole is so great at mixing passion with big emotional moments, you are really there inside the characters head, living that experience with them so it makes everything brand new for the reader as well.

This story is so much bigger than just two boys falling in love. It surrounds small town life, living up to parent expectations and everything surrounding your life upon graduation. I loved how she tackled this book and I can’t wait to see how the next one plays out.

Synopsis:
Jameson Bates
I have a secret. We all have secrets. I’m nothing special.
It just so happens, however, that my sworn enemy also knows my secret.
He’s the absolute worst person to know this, and there’s nothing I can do about it.
What he does with this information is totally out of my hands and completely in his.
This is why I’ve never let anyone in. I don’t trust easily. I keep to myself.
I’m closed off. Angry.
Guarded.

Garrison Dixon
I shouldn’t have seen what I did.
I shouldn’t know what I do.
But how Bates can think I would ever say anything is beyond me.
Everyone thinks I’m just a big, dumb football player with nothing more to him.
The truth is I’ll never say a word about what I witnessed. I don’t care about it the way he thinks I do. I wouldn’t hurt him.
And I’d let him know that—all of it—if he wasn’t so damn . . .
Guarded.

Review – Corrupt Union by Tracy Lorraine

Corrupt Union; Knights Ridge Empire #15
(#3 within a trilogy, #15 within a series)

Publication Date: December 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Dark/Enemies-to-Lovers/Mafia Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Nico and Bri!! GAH!! What a rollercoaster of a ride with a total rush of emotions!! Tracy never fails to bring her couples together in the most spectacular way and WOW! did Nico and Bri have a high stakes finish to their story!! I couldn’t tear my eyes from the pages!

From start to finish, I’m talking – beginning of the trilogy to the very end, Nico really grew into one fine man. I am not talking about only falling for the love of his life, but also losing his father and stepping up within the organization that opened his eyes to a much wiser Nico, because seriously…wiser Nico is fffiiiiirrrrreeeee!!

Even though we could all see these two ending up together, their kicking and clawing against it only held off the inevitable, but what a fight it was because it was super hot to watch…yum. However, there was more to them then just all they nakey times. Nico and Bri found something deeper than they ever imagined from that first night spent together and I loved each emotional connection they made in this last book. It hit all of the feels.

Bri goes through the wringer in this last book and she goes through growing pains as she comes out the other side of…well everything. Bri and Nico grow closer with their turmoil, through their pain and within their relationship, and it’s a beautiful thing to witness.

I’m pretty sure I say this with every trilogy, but this trilogy was one of my fav’s. The entire plot was intense and it’s all coming to a close as we are down to the last man standing. I can hardly wait for it.

Synopsis:

I found everything I didn’t know I needed.
Accepted forgiveness I didn’t deserve.

She fought for us.
Killed for us.
She was one of us.
And there was no way I was letting her go… again.

But I’m not the only one with wicked intentions for my siren. With her missing, we turn our blame to an obvious enemy. But our path of destruction could be leading us right into another trap.

We’ve been so consumed trying to win this war, that we’re losing the battle. We’ve been oblivious to what’s right in front of us.

Those kind of mistakes could destroy us. If we let them.

Individually, we’re strong.
But together, we’re invincible.
And we’re about to show the world just what we’re capable of.

“Is it always this easy for you? To wave your hand and have all of your needs met? To incline your head and have minions jump to do your bidding? To ask and always receive?”

“Except with you.”

He narrows his blue-green gaze on me from across the expanse of the table. The candlelight highlights the golden-brown specks in the depths of his eyes and haloes his dark hair, turning it almost blue. The hollows under his cheekbones seem more pronounced, the dip in his chin seems more delicious.

I try to tear my gaze from his, but it’s as if he holds me in a tractor beam. Awareness tugs on and stretches the air between us. My heart begins to race. This is ridiculous. So, he’s good-looking. I knew that already. What I hadn’t realized is that hidden behind that polished mask he presents to the world is an untamed animal. A beast lying in wait to unleash that darkness inside of him. An edginess, a sharp wickedness that I never would’ve guessed he’d be capable of, but which I sense now lapping at the restraints that he’s placed on himself.

I curl my fingers around the stem of my champagne glass. “I didn’t say I wanted champagne.”

“You love champagne. It’s your drink of choice,” he declares.

My eyebrows shoot up. “And you guessed this, how?”

“Nothing a little bit of research didn’t reveal.”

I stiffen. “You had me investigated?”

“Something you already knew about.” He continues, “As you did me.”

I blink, then surprise myself when laughter tumbles out from between my lips. “Touché.” I raise my glass.

He seems taken aback, himself. Then his lips curve up in a smile that’s so open, so real that something flutters deep inside. It’s probably ripples of hunger, that’s all. I had very little for lunch and no breakfast. That’s the reason my stomach seems to be bottoming out.

“Also, your acting skills need leveling up.”

“Excuse me?”

“You knew you were being followed, considering you gave my investigator the slip a few times.”

I raise a shoulder. “So, get a better investigator.”

This time it’s he who barks out a laugh. “Keep up this banter, and I’ll begin to think it’s our brand of foreplay.”

“You wish,” I scoff.

His grin widens. “Of course, the fact that you evaded the detective I had on you makes me wonder what you have to hide.”

The blood drains from my features, then I tip up my chin. “Maybe I have a lover.”

“No, you don’t.”

I pull back my shoulders. “You seem awfully confident about that, Minister.”

He stares at me. “Why is that so sexy coming from you?”

Heat flushes my skin, and my mouth dries. Why is it so hot to hear him say that particular four-letter word? Why is the thought of this man talking filthy to me such a turn on? I toss my hair over my shoulder, then tip up my chin. “Hold your horses. I only called you, Minister, not Prime Minister, which you’re not—”

“—yet,” he adds smoothly, then narrows his gaze. “You can’t belong to anyone else.”

“Oh?”

He nods. “You’re mine, Zara, and I’ll do everything in my power to make you accept that.”

Cover Reveal – Tempting the Neighbor by Ashley Munoz

Tempting the Neighbor, an all-new swoon-worthy enemies-to-lovers small-town standalone romance in the Mount Macon Series from bestselling author Ashley Munoz is coming January 13th!

This entire thing started because of a faulty tree.

Becoming a homeowner is not all it’s cracked up to be, let me tell you that right now. Especially in the dead of winter, when apparently trees can just fall in the middle of a suburban neighborhood.

Did my next-door neighbor help me remove said tree?

No, he did not…

And I asked while rocking bedhead, the world’s puffiest coat, and ugly snow boots.

So, really…he left me no choice.

I broke into his house.

While I only intended to steal a little warmth and maybe a cup of coffee, I fell victim to his jacuzzi tub.

Unfortunately for me, he returned early and that’s really when things got weird.

Instead of a cold glare or icy reply, all of which I fully expected from my disagreeable neighbor.

Colson Hanes offered to make me breakfast.

Then he asked me to stay…
