Review – Last Round by Charity Ferrell

51215180. sy475

Last Round; Twisted Fox #5 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: September 21, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town Romance/Friends-to-Lovers/Contemporary Romance

Author: Charity Ferrell

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The beginning of Charity’s books always make me laugh, smile, and basically spit out whatever beverage I happen to be drinking at the time (okay, it’s usually wine). Aside from knowing better to drink while reading her books, Charity’s fantastically witted writing is one of the fabulous reasons I fell in love with her books and will continue to read them for years to come.

Silas and Lola are quick witted and unfortunatly friend-zoned one another almost upon meeting. However, it makes for tons of sassy banter and quirky comebacks I absolutely adore, plus it allowed for years of pent of chemistry that made this book angsty while we waited for them to practically all but combust in flames of passion.

Last Round is sadly the final book in this series, but overall it was a huge win for Charity Ferrell. The story was beautifully woven together with a great timeline that was not only a tribute to the series, but allowed each couple from Twisted Fox their own unique and special time to shine. If you’ve been here from the beginning it’s no secret that Silas and Lola have been friends, but this book takes us on the journey of how that all takes place, right alongside how each one of their friends also fell in love.

For all the fun Charity puts in her books, and I’ll circle back to why I fell in love with her writing to begin with, there is a lot of fun…she also never forgets to include all the feels and hard times that truly bring her couples together. Last Round wraps up a great series and I look forward to the next journey.

Synopsis:

What’s the best way to get back at your cheating ex?
Give every guy who hits on you his number.

That’s what I did when I met Silas.
Little did I know, we’d see each other again.

One run-in leads to another.
One fake date leads to a friendship.
That friendship leads to feelings.
But everyone knows feelings and friendship doesn’t mix.

We’re too much the same.
It’d never work out.
That changes when one of us asks for more.

Everything falls apart.
There’s no going back.
Can our friendship survive … or will love destroy us?

Two great friends. One road trip. And eight inches…

…of snow that night at the cabin.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. Friends don’t bang friends.

I want my friends to stay in my life, especially that flirty, clever, outgoing best friend of mine.

It’s a damn good thing Owen and I made a pact in college to never ever sleep together, or else I’d be tempted.

Trouble is, eight years later I’ve been wondering what his kisses taste like. And I’ve been curious if our chemistry would extend into the bedroom. If he might feel the same risky pull.

But I don’t want to lose Owen, and history says there’s no way a tryst between friends can end well.

So as long as I avoid the bedroom with him, I won’t break that hard-as-steel rule.

Except the snow has other plans…

The Bromance Zone is a deliciously flirty, red-hot sexy, friends-to-lovers MM romance about the charming guy next door who’s sworn to never date a friend, the flirty hot nerd who’s been secretly crushing on that friend forever, and one night snowed in in a cabin. This book comes fully equipped for your reading pleasure with sexy banter, a super awkward dinner party, and a scene in front of a fireplace that proves just how dangerous the friend zone is.

Review – Callous Boys by Laura Lee

58684189. sy475

Callous Boys; Callous Boys of Crystal Cove #0.5 
(A prequel to a new series)

Publication Date: October 1, 2021

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

Author: Laura Lee

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

What a fantastic beginning! High emotions with thought out plot and drama. I’m already hooked on the Callous Boys!

Andi, Vaughn, Nico and Cruz have been best friends for their entire lives. As they grew and hormones became involved, noticing their hot friend was growing boobs, and boys being well….boys. They had a friendship that they didn’t want broken by Andi’s boobs, but that they also were hoping would evolve into something more given time and maturity.

Vaughn, Nico, and Cruze made a pact between the three of them, that none of them would make a move on Andi until she was ready and showed an interest in one of them, since all three of them were interested in her. Unbeknownst to them, as they kept their feelings hidden for her, she also did the same. Andi’s feelings for each boy never distinguished between each one, but only grew stronger for all of them over the years as she wanted each one equally. In her world she didn’t know how that would work, so she kept quiet about her feelings, since it was all or none. That is until a new boy, Hunter, came into town.

Everything changed with Hunter began flirting with Andi. Finally fearing they may lose what they never had, it was time to make a move, but how do Vaughn, Nico and Cruze decide when none of them have ever let Andi know how they feel about her? How do  they threaten their friendship without losing everything between them?

I loved that this poly relationship worked slowly into what they might want. Just because they had all been friends for years didn’t mean they knew how to work a romantic relationship. Guys in general can be super territorial and Nico, Cruz and Vaughn were no different. Cruz is by far the most laid back of the three, but he also understands the value of losing time and doesn’t want to lose Andi at any cost so he’s all in no matter what it takes. While Nico has a tougher home life, at least in the thought of living a poly lifestyle, he is closer in wanting to share like Cruz is. However, he’s also all guy when it comes to sharing his toys, like Andi…sharing is hard, just ask Vaughn who hates sharing anything. He’s a total caveman. While he’s never truly had a problem when it came to their friendship, they all know within a romantic relationship Vaughn would be the most possessive, but Andi also knows deep in her heart she can’t love one boy without loving all three.

This relationship grows slowly while they talk about the logistics, reality, and emotional ramifications of really diving into it. There are some very cute and funny moments that come out of those talks because let’s face it…how does it all work and do the swords cross? LOL

There is also a mysterious, mafia element that I’m dying to know more about. There is some shady business going down within the families, so what is exactly happening?…It’s all clouded in secret with a big cliffhanger to boot! I’m so there to find out what happens as the story continues because I need to know!!

Synopsis:

From USA Today Bestselling Author, Laura Lee, comes the prequel to this new dark reverse harem romance series, available exclusively in the Brutal Boys on Devil’s Night anthology

I grew up with three boys who vowed to always protect me.
Vaughn, Nico, and Cruz started as my neighbors.
Then, they became my best friends.
And in the end, they were my entire world.

We thought we were invincible. That nothing and no one could ever tear us apart.

It’s funny how murder has a way of changing that, isn’t it?

This is the story of our beginning.
This is the story of our destruction.

*CALLOUS BOYS is a 45k word prequel to the Callous Boys of Crystal Cove series. This is a dark (#whychoose) reverse harem story, meaning the heroine winds up with three or more love interests by the final installment. This book may contain triggers for sensitive readers.  Due to mature subject matter, it is recommended for readers 17+ only.

CALLOUS BOYS is available in the Brutal Boys on Devil’s Night Anthology on October 1, 2021.

He was pretentious and a player, and he had hated me for so long I forgot that we were ever anything more than enemies.
Brutally beautiful and savagely heartless, his only plan was to ruin everything I loved.
But dares were made, and even though I had no business saying yes, I found myself in trouble and forced to work with my rival to get us out of it.
He had always been cruel, but something changed.
The lure of him was too much. The way I craved his touch was unbearable.
Just as I fell for him, he proved himself to be exactly who he had been all along.

58363364. sy475

Fearless; The Privileged of Pembroke #5 
(#2 within a duet, #5 within a series)

Publication Date: August 27, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Ménage/New Adult/Friends-to-Lovers/Enemies-to-Lovers Romance

Author: Ivy Fox

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Staying up late to read Fearless was sooooo worth it!! The angst, the emotion, the steamy love triangle…this book has all the feels.

Fearless is exactly what a love triangle/ménage should tackle when it comes to the deep soulful emotions, twisted up feelings, and gut wrenching angst. So often a throuple jumps into a relationship and it’s happy from the get go. I understand throwing out reality and it’s a fiction world, but there is no relationship, no matter the amount of people that are in it that is super easy, so I love that Ivy tackled the heart of every relationship, especially one that involves multiple personalities.

Elle, Chad, and Saint all revolve around each other and have for years. Elle and Chad have been friends since kindergarten, while Chad and Saint developed a relationship later on. While it was originally Chad that was the glue between the three of them, not only being attracted to both, but also forcing the three of them to hang out, things changed and evolved, like teenage hormones do. Elle and Saint couldn’t stand one another sensing the other as competition for Chad’s affection, but as we come into Fearless that all comes to a head as they make Chad decide, choose one of them because they no longer want to share. When Chad can’t and won’t, Saint and Elle turn towards each other both in heartbreak and comfort and their once rivalry turns into something a lot more like love, but did they really make the right choice in cutting out part of their threesome?

It’s crazy how close hate and love walk that fine line, but Saint and Elle find out just how much they have in common while Chad slowly falls apart. Even while this couple grows together, which I LOVED how much Saint grew as a character, having a part of their original throuple gone gnaws at both of them and neither of them know how to get back what they had before everything fell apart.

Chad delves into some deep, dark places inside himself. He’s never been without Elle as his best friend. The growth he goes through, learning who Chad is without his sidekick, without someone to take care of, even without Saint to feel like he needs to correct all the time. Chad pulls out the version of himself that actually was buried deep and it’s one that the three of them needed more than they ever realized.

Elle goes through more ups and downs than anyone in this book, however, she’s probably the strongest person out of them to handle it and survive it, but she loves that she has support to lean on when the going gets tough. No matter what age she is, one of her guys was by her side to hold her hand or hold her tight, right when she needed it, but Elle was always strong enough to set things right and that is why this ménage works so well.

Lastly, Saint. Although, I would never put Saint last. He was pretty much everything in this book. His character growth was through the roof. He was sweet when needed, yet domineering when he had to be. He was caring and thoughtful, but his outside shell still screamed thug to those who didn’t know him. He was becoming the glue, that connecting middle piece, and Saint was everything Elle and Chad needed to complete their lives.

The intimate moments are crazy hot, no matter who is involved, but while they are also steamy, they also crack open emotional moments too. Nothing happens without purpose.

Since the Pembroke world is all interconnected the Grayson brothers are also dealing with their own chaos during this book, but Elle’s story is written in a way that it’s a complete standalone from her brothers. I will also say the same thing about Maya’s story. Everyone connects at some point in time, but don’t worry if you aren’t caught up yet, it will all make sense when you eventually read those books.

Review – When We Were Reckless by Emery Rose

54264846. sy475

When We Were Reckless; Lost Stars #3 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: August 27, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Age Gap/Unrequited Love/Best Friend’s Sister/Contemporary Romance

Author: Emery Rose

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A heartbreakingly beautiful story of how love can repair a broken soul and make you stronger than you ever thought possible.

I wish I could share all of the beautiful moments that happened in this story, but I’d basically be documenting most of the book verbatim, so, I’ll stick to a review 🙂

Considering Jesse is a broken man and Quinn is suffering from unrequited love, these two have the most beautiful souls that continually lift each other up and truly want nothing but the best for each other out of life. They have known each other all their lives, given the age difference, Jesse is the best friend of one of Quinn’s older brothers (she has three of them, who are all overly protective), so Jesse has known Quinn since the day she was born. When We Were Reckless highlights another great family, the Cavanaugh’s, which I hope we see more of in the future.

Of the McCallister brothers, I’d call Jesse the charmer. It’s no surprise that when Quinn was just five years old she declared her undying love for him and told him that she was going to marry him. Thirteen years later her affection has only grown for him, but when Jesse comes home after retiring from motocross, (a mystery in itself, since he’s lived and breathed the sport for years) Quinn wants to help the man she knows, but she also wants to explore the feelings that have blossomed into something deeper now that she is officially an adult.

I’ve always loved Jesse, a guy so bright, full of life, full of everything – competitive spirit, integrity, hard work, he is just a likeable guy, but in this book he is a fallen man, his spirit is broken, and he is afraid to try, afraid to fail, afraid to love again. It was fascinating to watch someone who was the king of his own world, a shiny light to everyone around him become so dim. His mood now affected those around him and because he saw what his mood did, it kicked him in the pants and made him want to get better. That is the spirit I love about Jesse. He’s that guy you root for because he is simply amazing and he doesn’t stay down for long, not just for himself, but because he wants the best for everyone around him.

Quinn may be young, but she is wise beyond her years. She’s also a lot like Jesse, full of optimism and passion (or at least the old Jesse). She may have a bit of hero worship from when she was younger, but they are also family friends and she wants to believe that their long time friendship will help now that he’s home and hiding out from the world. She wants to bring the light back to Jesse’s life and perhaps open his eyes to the possibilities of the two of them now that he’s single.   Could she finally have her fairy tale ending or will Jesse break her heart?

The McCallisters and Cavanagh’s are both great families and I hope there are more stories to come from both of them. There are interconnections to past books, but When We Were Reckless can be read as a complete standalone.

Synopsis:

What happens when the love of your life refuses to love you back?

Jesse McCallister.
Motocross legend. Reckless heartbreaker. And the love of my life.
Too bad he only thought of me as his best friend’s little sister.
Naïve and innocent. Only eighteen. Completely off-limits.

Unrequited love… was there anything more painful?
Turns out there was—when he kisses you but has no memory of it.
When he tells you his heart was broken, and he doesn’t believe in love.
When he doesn’t want you kissing anyone else, but you’re stuck in the friend zone.

Despite the odds stacked against us, my foolish heart refused to stop loving him.
Now I’m falling under his spell. Drowning in his perfect lies. Addicted to his stolen glances and forbidden kisses.
I’m on a collision course with disaster and only one thing is certain… Jesse McCallister is going to ruin me.

Wild Chance, an all-new moving and emotional friends-to-lovers standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Mari Carr is available now!

It’s been three years since Padraig Collins lost the love of his life, Mia, and since then, he’s been sleepwalking his way through each day, focusing only on work and family, while hanging out with his best friend, Emmy. He’s determined to make that enough, not ready or willing to take a chance on loving and losing again.

The sum equivalent of Emmy’s experience with relationships is contained within the pages of the romance novels she writes while sitting at the end of the bar at Pat’s Pub. That is if she doesn’t count the secret crush she’s been harboring for Padraig since the first day she laid eyes on him. Unfortunately for her, Paddy’s heart still belongs to Mia.

Two tragedies later, Padraig finds himself reaching out to Emmy, only to discover she’s no longer there. And it will take the combined romantic efforts of the entire Collins’ family to help him win the heart of his best friend…and his second chance at happily ever after.

Excerpt

She tried to break the kiss, needing air, needing answers, but Padraig tightened his hold.

“Not yet,” he murmured against her lips. He was gentling his kiss, but he wasn’t letting her go.

“Paddy,” she whispered.

He shook his head. “No,” he insisted again. “Not yet. I’m not done.”

She jerked slightly, then shivered when she felt him pull her blouse free of her jeans, slipping his hands underneath, his fingers stroking the bare skin at her waist. Her pussy clenched in response. Actually, everything clenched in response.

“God,” she breathed, when his hands shifted north, engulfing her breasts. He pinched her nipples, more roughly than she would have expected, the pain setting off some sort of sensual current that had her rolling her hips against him. 

Why were they wearing so many clothes? Because suddenly, all she could picture was him stripping her blouse and bra off, dragging her jeans down, and taking her against the shelves.

Oh my God. They were in the pub. His entire family was just outside this storage closet. 

Had he locked the door? 

Was there a lock on the door?

She pushed against him more firmly this time. If she didn’t stop him now, she was going to spontaneously combust. “Paddy, please.”

He relinquished her lips, his forehead pressed against hers.

“What are you doing?” she asked.

“Kissing you.”

“Practice kissing?”

He scowled. “No!”

She blew out an exasperated breath. “Then what?”

“I didn’t like seeing you with Joe Moretti.”

Emmy frowned. “Is this an overprotective thing? Or…” She wouldn’t let herself ask if he was jealous. Her self-preservation genes were finally kicking in. She’d been wearing her heart on her sleeve for too long and her pride was tired of taking a beating.

“No. Not overprotective,” he said, placing one soft kiss on her lips. Then another. His sweet kisses were as deadly to her libido—and her heart—as his hungry ones.

“Then what?” she prompted, praying he’d say the word her heart longed to hear, the one that would mean he felt something for her stronger than friendship.

And then…she got her wish.

“I was jealous, Em. I’ve been seeing red ever since you walked in the pub with him. Spent the last couple of hours fighting the need to walk over and punch the guy’s lights out.”

She slowly shook her head. “But you said—”

“That kiss last week wasn’t practice, and it wasn’t me reaching out to you because I was sad about Mia. And I want you to forget everything I said on Christmas Eve because I was wrong. I was lying to myself and you. I can’t be just friends with you anymore, Emmy.”

Review – Serves Me Wright by K.A. Linde

58454195

Serves Me Wright ; Wright #9 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: July 20, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Fake Relationship/Friends-to-Lovers/Contemporary Romance

Author: K.A. Linde

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars4.5 stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Wine, friends, fake dating, and a large family round out this Wright book.

This is a book filled with interconnecting storylines that took two friends on several fake dates while they slowly fell in love.

Julian has always found Jennifer attractive, but never acted on it for several reasons, a big one is that he had a long term girlfriend, who is a bit of snobby witch, but now they are both free and he finds himself in the perfect situation to finally make his move.

Jennifer has had a crush on Julian since he moved to town, but the timing between them has never worked out, but when the opportunity arises for Julian to accompany her home for a family event and she can return the favor for a gala, their friendly status elevates to fake dating and then to more as “benefits” soon become involved, things soon get complicated.

I’ve loved reading K.A. Linde before and she’s bewitched me in the past, however I’m not sure if it was this story, or the chemistry between the characters or what exactly as this story didn’t connect right away with me. It was pleasant and I enjoyed all the characters, but I didn’t get that wow factor right out of the gate. This couple was slow to warm for being friends and having a history, but overall the story was a 4.5 read.

Blog Tour – Pretty Boy D by Rachel Jonas and Nikki Thorne

💕🖤 ℍ𝕠𝕥 ℂ𝕠𝕧𝕖𝕣 ℝ𝕖𝕧𝕖𝕒𝕝 🖤💕

𝗣𝗿𝗲𝘁𝘁𝘆 𝗕𝗼𝘆 𝗗 𝗯𝘆 𝗥𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗹 𝗝𝗼𝗻𝗮𝘀 & 𝗡𝗶𝗸𝗸𝗶 𝗧𝗵𝗼𝗿𝗻𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗝𝘂𝗹𝘆 𝟵𝘁𝗵! 𝗗𝗼𝗻’𝘁 𝗺𝗶𝘀𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗮𝗺𝘆 𝗯𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗳𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗱𝘀-𝘁𝗼 𝗿𝗼𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀-𝘁𝗼 𝗹𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀 𝗿𝗼𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲!

#𝗣𝗿𝗲-𝗼𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝘁𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆!

BLURB

Dane Golden—Best friend. Temptation in football cleats. Roommate?

I’m screwed.

His followers don’t call him Pretty Boy D for nothing. The guy is, literally, God’s gift to women. I should know. I’ve watched chicks throw themselves at him since puberty.

Sharing his loft should be simple. Easy. But shortly after I settle in, we realize being “just friends” was so much easier when we weren’t sleeping under the same roof.

Seven years of thinking we had this down to a science goes out the window the night Dane sees my “Never Have I Ever” list. Now, he’s on a mission to help me cross off the top four items. Some of which aren’t quite as innocent as he’d expect.

What he’s proposing will break the rules we agreed to when I first came to stay here. He wants me to give in, to let my guard down and face my feelings for once. At least, that’s what that wicked look in his eyes and the mounting heat between us suggests.

This isn’t how I imagined being roommates would go. But a girl can only stare temptation in its green eyes for so long and not weaken.

My best friend wants to have his way with me and, right or wrong… I think I might let him.

***

Pretty Boy D is a full-length standalone novel. This book can absolutely be read on its own, but when you’re done, it’s recommended that you check out more from the Golden triplets and Joss in the complete enemies-to-lovers trilogy, KINGS OF CYPRESS PREP.

Do you enjoy the frustratingly hot push and pull of a good friends-to-lovers or roommates-to-lovers romance? Then you’ll love getting to know Dane and Joss. Due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd. Expect an HEA and no trigger warnings needed.

Review – Pretty Boy D by Rachel Jonas and Nikki Thorne

57547883. sy475

Pretty Boy D; Kings of Cypress Prep #4 
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: July 9, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Friends-to-Lovers/Roommates Romance

Authors: Rachel Jonas and Nikki Thorne

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I loved, LOVED returning to Cypress Pointe with the Golden boys. Dane and Joss were a total feel good, smexy, friends falling in love story. Sigh…it was perfect.

Joss really does love her best friend, but her parents once began as friends before their marriage fell apart, so she’d rather keep Dane as a friend than ever give into the feelings he stirs inside her and lose him forever. However, when they move in together that closeness makes it harder to contain her emotions and giving in to him seems so much easier. Loving Dane as a friend has always been easy, how much easier would it be to love him as a lover? Dane in nothing by sleeping pants is walking smexy sin.

Dane truly has a heart of gold and has been in love with his best friend since he was twelve. It’s taken seven years to finally be able to tell Joss how he feels and once those feelings are unleashed, it’s really hard to bottle them back up. He wants her in his life if only she would let him in. Dane would give her the world if she would let him. He will take her anyway he can, even if friendship is the only way, but in his dirty fantasies she’s already a dream come true.

While these two may seem to have been inevitable, as both of Dane’s brother pretty much point out to him all the time, the road to happiness is pitted with unknowns; like potential lovers, and angst, like job opportunities, plus so much more. There is nothing that is guaranteed and a friendship like Dane and Joss’ proves that nothing in life is easy or comes without hardship, but anything worthy gained is worth the trouble in earning it.

New Release – Ache by Marley Valentine

Marley Valentine has revealed the cover for Ache!From USA Today bestselling author Marley Valentine comes an all new emotional, friends-to lovers gay romance standalone.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is ecCLQPi4pkSHQBjRqzYQJFvkPj9zVRD8DIUE17qfXlsnOmb3RLncyHLd8BdNt2icP2WoODnHSr0g15Fhp2ccL2pgu2iTnpDuD--LdCBRwpVMdseFF1NhBMGZaGvRnvNHYmZI_8et



I couldn’t tell you when I fell in love with Gael Herrera,
but I wish I knew how to make it stop.

Falling in love with a straight man is a rookie mistake. But falling in love with my soon-to-be-married-to-a-woman best friend is nothing but heartache.

Through all the years, and all the men I’ve fooled around with, he’s always been at the back of my mind. An unrequited crush I wish I could shake. A dream that was never going to come true.

When I whisk him off to a surprise bachelor party weekend in Vegas, I surrender to the idea that this is an opportunity for me to finally let go of my feelings for him and say goodbye.

But after a heated exchange and an even hotter kiss, everything I thought I knew about our friendship changed.

Maybe I had it wrong. Maybe, after all this time, we were more than best friends. Maybe, just maybe, he felt it too.

Review – Ache by Marley Valentine

56559323. sy475

Ache 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: June 22, 2021

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

Author: Marley Valentine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An achingly deep, beautiful book. Ache delves into touchy subjects, but it’s written with such personal emotion, that it transports the reader to an entirely different level to deliver all the feels.

Gael and Jordan have been friends since Kindergarten, but at some point those friendship feelings changed, at least for Jordan. However, Jordan kept them under lock and key as his BFF, Gael was straight. It isn’t until Gael’s bachelor party that all of those pent up feelings come out, but how do you lock back up what has now been released, especially when the man you love is getting married to someone else, a woman at that?

Gael is engaged to Elena and he does love his fiancee. However, if he really looked deep at his feelings, he loves Jordan more. He knows it’s messed up and he shouldn’t have feelings for his best friend when he’s engaged to someone else, but when Jordan takes him away for his bachelor party, to celebrate his pending marriage no less, Gael let’s his pent up feelings known. What’s the worst that could happen?

This book is so much more than two men lost in a craze of lust and emotion. They discuss the ramifications of what could happen should they pursue anything. They talk about their past, their future, the possibilities, they look at every angle and I love that they consider not just them but the ripple effect of how their actions will affect those they love. This is a book about real world consequences based in a fictional setting. I LOVE THIS!! It pulls on those deep heartstrings while still connecting to the characters. I was completely immersed in Gael and Jordan’s story the entire time and loved reading a new author.

I loved discovering a new author and I will not hesitate to jump back into something else she writes, as a matter of fact, I’m already itching to seek out more.

Ache brings the feels, the angst, and the right amount of steam to be an excellent read.

Synopsis:

From USA Today bestselling author Marley Valentine comes an all new emotional, friends-to-lovers gay romance.

I couldn’t tell you when I fell in love with Gael Herrera, but I wish I knew how to make it stop.

Falling in love with a straight man is a rookie mistake. But falling in love with my soon-to-be-married-to-a-woman best friend is nothing but heartache.

Through all the years, and all the men I’ve fooled around with, he’s always been at the back of my mind. An unrequited crush I wish I could shake. A dream that was never going to come true.

When I whisk him off to a surprise bachelor party weekend in Vegas, I surrender to the idea that this is an opportunity for me to finally let go of my feelings for him and say goodbye.

But after a heated exchange and an even hotter kiss, everything I thought I knew about our friendship changed.

Maybe I had it wrong. Maybe, after all this time, we were more than best friends. Maybe, just maybe, he felt it too.

Cover Reveal – PRETTY BOY D by Rachel Jonas and Nikki Thorne

🖤 💖  🖤 ℍ𝕠𝕥 ℂ𝕠𝕧𝕖𝕣 ℝ𝕖𝕧𝕖𝕒𝕝 🖤 💖  🖤

Pretty Boy D by Rachel Jonas & Nikki Thorne is coming June 9th! 𝗗𝗼𝗻𝘁 𝗺𝗶𝘀𝘀 𝗶𝘁!

#𝗣𝗿𝗲𝗼𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝘁𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆!

BLURB

Dane Golden—Best friend. Temptation in football cleats. Roommate?

I’m screwed.

His followers don’t call him Pretty Boy D for nothing. The guy is, literally, God’s gift to women. I should know. I’ve watched chicks throw themselves at him since puberty.

Sharing his loft should be simple. Easy. But shortly after I settle in, we realize being “just friends” was so much easier when we weren’t sleeping under the same roof.

Seven years of thinking we had this down to a science goes out the window the night Dane sees my “Never Have I Ever” list. Now, he’s on a mission to help me cross off the top four items. Some of which aren’t quite as innocent as he’d expect.

What he’s proposing will break the rules we agreed to when I first came to stay here. He wants me to give in, to let my guard down and face my feelings for once. At least, that’s what that wicked look in his eyes and the mounting heat between us suggests.

This isn’t how I imagined being roommates would go. But a girl can only stare temptation in its green eyes for so long and not weaken.

My best friend wants to have his way with me and, right or wrong… I think I might let him.

MISCHIEF AFTER MIDNIGHT by Jennifer Bernard is out now! Check out the gorgeous new contemporary romance and grab your copy today!

Title: Mischief After Midnight

Author: Jennifer Bernard

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Mischief After Midnight:

A sizzling “brother’s best friend” standalone in the Lost Harbor, Alaska series

Bartender Toni Del Rey is the quick-witted queen of the Olde Salt Saloon, famous for trading barbs with grizzled fishermen and putting rowdy customers in their place. Independent and fearless, she’s only ever lost her cool over one man—the childhood crush who got away. These days she sticks to the F’s: friends, fun, and fu…well, you know. But now Bash is back, and more crush-worthy than ever. Worst of all, he just bought the Olde Salt, which makes him her brand-new boss.

Bash left Lost Harbor long ago to become a professional fighter—and to forget his nightmarish childhood. He’s only back to return a favor, but when he sets eyes on Toni, he may never want to leave again. His best friend’s little sister has gone from tomboy to tempting, from mischievous to maddening—a fact he can’t ignore while they work side by side at the Olde Salt. But between Toni’s fierce independence, his reputation as “Bad News” Bash, and a few deep dark secrets, they’re hardly suited to anything lasting.

Then again, you never know what a little mischief after midnight will lead to…

Read Kay’s Review: Mischief After Midnight

Exclusive Excerpt:

Trembling between anger and vulnerability, she’d never looked more beautiful to him. Her wide eyes seemed to take up half her face, her thick lashes damp with tears. She’d been through a terrible twenty-four hours, after all. And now he’d added to it, which was the last thing he’d ever want.

“You can jab me with that cactus if it’ll make you feel better.”

She looked at it as if she’d completely forgotten it was in her hand. “Excuse me? That’s no way to treat a perfectly innocent plant.”

He smiled, hoping that her joke meant she was feeling better. “Are cactuses innocent, though? With all those spikes?”

“It’s cacti, not cactuses, and don’t you dare disrespect mine. I’ve always related to this little guy. We have so much in common. There’s the liquor connection. The South American origins. The prickly exterior.” Her voice caught and he couldn’t bear it any more.

He strode toward her and caught her in his arms—gingerly, because she still held that cactus. “Toni. I’m really fucking sorry I ever made that bet. I’d rather gnaw my arm off than hurt you.”

She trembled against him. He felt her long, fine-boned legs press against his thighs. His brain hazed over, and all he knew in the entire world was her. Would she believe him? Know he was being real? That he wasn’t playing some kind of game with her?

“Really?” she muttered from behind her cactus. He lowered his head so he didn’t miss a word. “Do you mean the right one with the really great uppercut? Or the left one that sometimes drops and leaves you exposed?”

He looked down at her, then took the cactus from her hand and set it on the desk. Cupping her head in his hands, he scanned her face. That Toni bravado undid him. Even when she was injured, hurt, confused—she kept her sense of humor.

His heart gave a slow, helpless somersault, an upside down roundabout turn that left him somewhere very different when it was over. It left him at her mercy. Completely and hopelessly.

“Both my arms. And my legs. All the damn body parts. You can have them. Just tell me you’re okay. Tell me you forgive me.”

She blinked at him, looking a little stunned. “It matters to you that much?”

“That much. Yes.” Was all his pent-up emotion showing on his face? He didn’t care. He wanted her to know how much this meant. Cautiously, braced for rejection, he tilted her head and lowered his mouth to hover above hers. “Are we okay?”

“I’m still quitting the Olde Salt,” she whispered. The movement of her full lips riveted him. He wetted his own lips because his mouth had just gone dry.

“I don’t care about that,” he said harshly. “I just want to know that we’re okay. You and me.”

He caught her rough swallow, the shift of the muscles in her slim throat. Then another soft whisper.

“We could be better.”

“How? What can I do? Just tell me.”

“Take me to bed,” came her answer.

40867583. sy475 Georgia

I’m surrounded by love, yet have no one to call my own.
But then Chase, my new roommate, is suddenly there.
He could be the perfect guy for me, if he wasn’t nursing a broken heart.
The more time I waste looking for love, the more I realize that what I want has been right in front of me all along.
Falling for Chase is the easiest thing I’ve ever done, but fighting for him is the hardest.
Because his past isn’t finished with him— not even close.

Chase
Love finds you when you least expect it.
I was only looking for a place to crash after having my heart ripped out, instead I found someone who turned my world upside down.
A girl like Georgia was looking for happily ever after, and so far my life had been anything but a fairytale.
I can walk into a burning building without thinking twice, but the spark I feel with her scares the hell out of me.
I can’t keep watching her look for someone else—not when I’m falling for her.
Just when everything starts to fall into place, I’m reminded just how messy and imperfect life can be.
When the smoke clears, it’s Georgia by my side. Life might not be perfect— but our love could be.

*My Kind of Perfect is the third and final interconnected stand-alone novel in the Finding Love series.*

Blog Tour – Heavy Petting by Erin Nicholas

He’s her best friend.
A reformed bad boy turned hot teacher.
And after one spur-of-the-moment Vegas wedding… her husband.

Heavy Petting, an all-new heartwarming and laugh-out-loud romantic comedy in the Boys of the Bayou Gone Wild Series by New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available now!

He’s her best friend.
A reformed bad boy turned hot teacher.
And after one spur-of-the-moment Vegas wedding… her husband.

Jordan Benoit and Fletcher Landry have been best friends since they were six. He’s always been The Guy. When she needed picked up, cheered up, or lifted up–like literally, to see the stage at a concert–Fletcher was the guy.

So when her boyfriend dumps her–on national TV–Fletcher immediately gets on a plane and comes to her rescue.

And when she ends up in a Vegas wedding chapel and needs someone to say, “I do”…yep, Fletcher’s the guy. Of course.

But being The Guy 24/7 is a lot. He just wants everyone to give him a freaking minute to get this marriage thing right. Including his sexy, sweet new wife who he’s wanted for three years. Who is exasperatingly, temptingly all-in from minute one.

Jordan knows what she wants. A life in her hometown. A job with alpacas. And Fletcher. Not necessarily in that order.

They’ve said the vows. They’d told the world. They’ve told their grandmas. Forget taking things slow. Forget just heavy petting. Forget any chance of backing out when things get tough. They’re going to have to go all the way, in every way.

After all, friends becoming lovers should be the easiest thing in the world. Right?

Excerpt

“I also think that I need to—”
“Marry me.”
“Date you.”
They spoke at the same time.
Then stared at each other.
“What?”
“What?”
They spoke simultaneously again.
“I was trying to give you some freaking space before I said anything.” He seemed very annoyed suddenly.
She leaned in, bracing her hand on the seat between them. “The last person I need space from is you, Fletcher. I mean, we’ve basically been dating for twenty years. If dating is about getting to know someone and figuring out how well you fit with them and figuring out if you want to spend the rest of your life with them…we’ve done that.”
He shook his head. “You have got to be one of the most exasperating people in my life.”
Her eyebrows rose. “Considering your twin brothers are Zeke and Zander, being one of the most exasperating people in your life is pretty huge.”
He shook his head. “Absolutely exasperating. To think I could’ve kissed you when we were standing next to a king-sized bed and you were only in your bra and panties and you would have been all in.”
Jordan felt her cheeks flush, but she grinned widely. “I really am a pain.”
“You really are.” His gaze dropped to her mouth.
Jordan felt a zing of excitement go through her. She really wanted him to kiss her.
“I think you dating me is a great idea,” he said after a moment.
Thank God.
“You’re sure you’re done dating other people? Having fun with all those girls? All the casual relationships?” she asked.
“If it means I get to be with you? Absolutely.”
Her stomach swooped, harder and faster than before. “This isn’t crazy?”
“It makes a hell of a lot more sense than anything else. Like you dating other men. Or either of us being with anyone else.”
“We’ve never talked about this before.”
“You’ve been taken,” he said simply.
Right. That was true. And Fletcher was too good of a guy to go after another man’s girl.
She still felt compelled to say, “It’s been three years since anything happened.”
“Again, because you’ve been taken.” His voice dropped. “Only because you’ve been taken, Jordan.”
Her heart skittered at that and she wet her lips. She thought about her next words carefully. Several seconds ticked by. Then she said simply, “Prove it.”
Fletcher reached out, wrapped his big hand around her wrist, and tugged her close. He cupped the back of her head and brought her in until they were nose to nose. “This changes everything,” he said. Almost as if it was a warning.
“I know.”
“I’m the last frog you’re ever going to kiss. So be sure you want it now.”
That was exactly what she’d wanted to hear without even realizing it.

Blurb:

Meeting a man in Vegas is easy. Finding one to settle down with? Not so much.

When I relocated to Sin City for my job, I decided this was my fresh start to get away from old habits, including my penchant for dating the wrong type of guy. Namely, bad boys.

So, I came up with an experiment to make me expand my dating horizons. I can only talk to men whose name begins with a certain letter of the alphabet. After I meet them, we hang out, and we might date for a short period of time, but if he’s not the one I move on to the next letter. It’s easy, and it leads me to meeting all kinds of new men until one night at the bar, a very sexy bartender discovers my little plan.

The cocky bastard of a bartender is Nicolás Antonio Santiago, and he’s as gorgeous as his name.

Enthusiastic, charming, and clever, Nic takes to my love life with interest and helps me with my pursuits. We become fast friends, and he whisks me on his wild adventures. His impulsive ways become addictive, and while I’ve been trying to stay away from bad boys, I find myself falling for one.

As our relationship grows intense, I have to push my desires aside and stay the course. Nic doesn’t do love or relationships. Even if the sexual tension between us is palpable, I have an experiment to finish, and the next letter in my list is far from N.

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. My fear is when I leave, my heart will stay here too.

New Release – Heavy Petting by Erin Nicholas

Friends becoming lovers should be the easiest thing in the world. Right?

Heavy Petting, an all-new sexy and sweet romantic comedy by New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available now!

He’s her best friend.
A reformed bad boy turned hot teacher.
And after one spur-of-the-moment Vegas wedding… her husband.

Jordan Benoit and Fletcher Landry have been best friends since they were six. He’s always been The Guy. When she needed picked up, cheered up, or lifted up–like literally, to see the stage at a concert–Fletcher was the guy.

So when her boyfriend dumps her–on national TV–Fletcher immediately gets on a plane and comes to her rescue.

And when she ends up in a Vegas wedding chapel and needs someone to say, “I do”…yep, Fletcher’s the guy. Of course.

But being The Guy 24/7 is a lot. He just wants everyone to give him a freaking minute to get this marriage thing right. Including his sexy, sweet new wife who he’s wanted for three years. Who is exasperatingly, temptingly all-in from minute one.

Jordan knows what she wants. A life in her hometown. A job with alpacas. And Fletcher. Not necessarily in that order.

They’ve said the vows. They’d told the world. They’ve told their grandmas. Forget taking things slow. Forget just heavy petting. Forget any chance of backing out when things get tough. They’re going to have to go all the way, in every way.

After all, friends becoming lovers should be the easiest thing in the world. Right?

Review – When Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting

56269043

When Sparks Fly 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: September 21, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Friends-to-Lovers/Close Proximity/Contemporary Romance

Author: Helena Hunting

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars4.5 stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

When Sparks Fly is Hunting’s contemporary side mixed with her light humor. This had more of a realistic twist infused with Hunting’s fantastic romantic flare and dusted with her wit and charm.

This book takes two emotionally damaged people, given real life drama and solutions and then they still have to figure out if they are better off together or apart at the end.

Declan and Avery have been best friends since college and have been living together has roommates for the past couple years since graduation. They have been through a lot together, but have never dated or even crossed a line into indecent waters. They both have been able to put each other in a friendship box with absolutely zero trouble, but when Avery gets seriously injured and needs help with basic needs, some shall we say, lines have to be crossed just so Avery can use the bathroom or take a shower. The proverbial box is opened and it’s hard to close once things have been released.

Declan is there for Avery- 24/7 . As her caregiver, he will do or give Avery whatever she needs, literally anything to make sure she heals properly. He can’t even imagine what he would have done had she not survived her accident so he truly becomes a hovering, over protective stalker. While he knows it’s not healthy, he also can’t stop and while Avery isn’t in a place to help herself he’s fine, but when she begins to heal…Declan slowly unravels, but remember that opened box…yeah it’s trouble for both of them.

These two may have known each other for years, but when their relationship begins to change neither are prepared for the emotional pileup that is coming for them. Deck is a normal self-saboteur and Avery never lets anyone in emotionally. While these two think their friendship basis is strong enough to handle everything, hopefully it will be enough to withstand their heartbreaks.

This book is different than a lot of Helena’s other works, but it is still crafted with her great writing and fun wit. It’s a 4.5 overall only because Deck was a bit of a hard sell for me personally. I normally love Helena’s hero’s, even her jerky ones which I seem to love more (like Shippy), but again this was just my personal opinion on Declan.

Synopsis:

Running the Spark House, a hotel/event space that has been in her family for years, has been Avery Spark’s lifelong dream. After years of working hard and making personal sacrifices, Avery and her two younger sisters have turned the Spark House into the premier destination in Colorado Springs. Avery is living her best life—she works with her sisters and loves every minute of it, she has a great group of friends, and she lives in a fantastic condo with her best friend Declan. She might not have any love in her life, but she’s happy.

But everything comes to a screeching halt when Avery is in a car accident, leaving her immobile for weeks. After nearly losing Avery, Declan insists that he will be the one to take care of her while she recovers. However, as Declan becomes Avery’s caretaker, lines begin to blur.

Avery and Declan have been best friends since college and always had an attraction to one another, but when she ended up dating his best friend, Sam, they successfully stamped down any feelings they may have ever had for one another. Now, as Declan and Avery spend more time together, they each begin to wonder what would’ve happened if she’d dated him instead of Sam. What starts as a friend helping out another friend turns into foreplay and, before they realize it, they recognize how deeply they care for one another. But when things get serious their past threatens to destroy everything they have built.

Review – Bastard Bartender by Jeannine Colette and Lauren Runow

57444156

Bastard Bartender; Falling For The Stars – Gemini 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 23, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Friends to Lovers/Contemporary Romance

Authors: Lauren Runow and Jeannine Colette

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A fun and flirty, with a rush of adrenaline, contemporary romance.

Another great addition to the astrological stars series by these two great writers. Each one has been extremely different and this setting in Sin City with a alphabet dating theme was a really fun twist. Evette and Nic both live in Las Vegas and know how hard it is to actually meet someone, not that Nic is actually looking, but he does sympathize with Evette when she comes to the bar he works at on the night she is searching for her “P”.

You see most people in Las Vegas are there for vacation or a weekend/business trip, so finding someone to really connect with for the long haul is tricky. Evette doesn’t have a great track record when it comes to men ,so with the help of her best friend, they came up with dating rules which include dating men according to the letters of the alphabet. Evette was all the way down to the letter P when she meets Nic, already past the letter N, because Nic is a fun guy, but being the helpful bartender he is, he also joins in on her adventure and becomes her extra wingman thus beginning their friendship.

Even though Evette is attracted to Nic and multiple times wishes she hadn’t already met an “N” man, Nic is also the kind of man she is trying to avoid.  Nic is fun, flirty, loves adventure, isn’t clingy, obviously has a job, loves his family…however, aside from not falling into the correct letter of the alphabet when she needs it…he’s also a huge commitmentphobe. He believes in living life to the extreme and that means no relationships and unfortunately that is why Evette is searching through the alphabet. She’s tired of being alone, so she refuses to give up on her quest.

No matter how much fun these two have as friends and circle each other, is there any real hope of a future when they both want different things?

I love to read each month and see what these two authors have cooked up as this series continues. Each one is a complete standalone and the only recurring theme are the traits around the astrological sign. They are all so different and I love it!

Synopsis:

Meeting a man in Vegas is easy. Finding one to settle down with? Not so much.

When I relocated to Sin City for my job, I decided this was my fresh start to get away from old habits, including my penchant for dating the wrong type of guy. Namely, bad boys.

So, I came up with an experiment to make me expand my dating horizons. I can only talk to men whose name begins with a certain letter of the alphabet. After I meet them, we hang out, and we might date for a short period of time, but if he’s not the one I move on to the next letter. It’s easy, and it leads me to meeting all kinds of new men until one night at the bar, a very sexy bartender discovers my little plan.

The cocky bastard of a bartender is Nicolás Antonio Santiago, and he’s as gorgeous as his name.

Enthusiastic, charming, and clever, Nic takes to my love life with interest and helps me with my pursuits. We become fast friends, and he whisks me on his wild adventures. His impulsive ways become addictive, and while I’ve been trying to stay away from bad boys, I find myself falling for one.

As our relationship grows intense, I have to push my desires aside and stay the course. Nic doesn’t do love or relationships. Even if the sexual tension between us is palpable, I have an experiment to finish, and the next letter in my list is far from N.

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. My fear is when I leave, my heart will stay here too.
