Review – Wicked As Seduction by Shayla Black

57431803. sy475

Wicked as Seduction; Trees and Laila #1, Wicked and Devoted #5
(#1within a duet, #5 within a series)

Publication Date: March 15, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Duet/Security/Suspense/opposites attract Romance

Author: Shayla Black

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

More puzzle pieces fit together in this intricate and seductive storyline. I’m hooked, I’m addicted, and I’m totally whipped into submission by Shayla Black, please keep giving me more of this EM Security team.

From book one we’ve been given bits and pieces of this continual storyline along with each of the players in this Wicked and Devoted world. Trees and Laila have been wrapped up in the overall plot from the very beginning and we finally get their intimate story and how each of their roles in the plot plays out.

I love how Shayla has written the overall story arc for this entire series. Each duet in this world winds around the overall plot and yet, intersects with each other at different time lines. So while they also have their own individual stories that play out, they also line up according to past timelines, making me remember, oh yeah, that already happened but to another character and now we have a different POV. I love those moments!

Laila was the girl One-Mile helped rescue when he was held in captivity. She’s had a rough life to put it mildly. What she’s suffered at the hands of her tormentors is something none of us could even dream of, but Laila’s spirit, pride, and gumption is also something to be admired. Her captors never broke her of her inner fire. While her pride can sometimes be a bit much, it is also commendable in the eyes of those around her, especially a man like Trees.

Trees is attracted to Laila pretty much upon sight. While he does have a type, small and petite, what he comes to appreciate more is her fiery spirit and love she has for her family too. Trees is the tech guru for EM Security and while he’s not typically a bodyguard, it’s also not completely out of his wheelhouse either. Guarding Laila is probably the hardest job he’s ever had, and hard is the optimal word. He can’t seem to control his body’s reaction around her, which is inconvenient at best. He knows what she’s been through and with his shere size alone he doesn’t want to scare her. Laila’s feistiness and determination to save her family may just kill him if the cartel doesn’t do it first.

I loved reading this story about a woman who has suffered so much, but finally learns to feel comfortable in a place where she could learn to trust in someone again. It isn’t easy when you’ve lost all hope in humanity, but Trees is the perfect man to help restore that kind of faith. His gooey center is also filled with a ton of patience and gentle understanding that not a lot of people have. He’s a rare gem of a man and I loved everything about him.

I loved everything about this first book of the duet. It’s action filled, totally non-stop from start to finish, and filled with a ton of chemistry, which was also uniquely amazing considering where Laila came from. Shayla did a fantastic job of handling her past and moving forward with her future. I’m excited to finish their story and see what’s next.

Synopsis:
He’ll protect her…even if he has to take her captive to save her.

Tech wiz and former elite soldier Forest “Trees” Scott had one mission: Rescue the woman being hunted by a vicious cartel and get her to safety. It should have been simple…but the minute he sees the wary beauty with haunted eyes, his desire for her complicates everything. So does her stubborn refusal to trust him. When Trees is forced to abduct her, she vows to hate him—even as he finds himself falling in love…

For six years, Laila Torres has known nothing but brutality at the hands of men, so when the massive stranger with the forbidding mien kidnaps her, she’s frightened—and furious. But the giant’s protective care shocks her. With every word, he proves steadfast. With every forbidden touch, he awakens the woman in her. Soon, she’s facing the terrifying realization that he’s also dangerously close to capturing her heart.

But their ruthless enemies are closing in, threatening everything Laila holds dear. When she’s forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice, will she trust Trees and their love to save her?

Wicked as Seduction by Shayla Black, coming March 15th!

Blog Tour – Wicked Heat by Ella Frank

“He’s grumpy, rude, and honestly, not that likeable at all. So why can’t I stop thinking about him?”

Wicked Heat, an all-new opposites-attract mm romance, and the first book in the Chicago Heat Series from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank, is live now!

Ryan
Kind, caring, and protective. Those are the three qualities I’m looking for when it comes to my dream man. In a city as big as Chicago, you wouldn’t think he would be that hard to find, right?
Wrong.
Sure, my boss found a super-sexy detective and my best friend fell madly in love with the most eligible bachelor around. But the only person I’ve met recently is a broody bad boy who saved me at a sketchy pub.
He’s grumpy, rude, and honestly, not that likeable at all. Hardly my “dream” guy.
So why can’t I stop thinking about him?

Jameson
I don’t do friendships. I don’t do relationships either. The very last thing I’m looking for in life is to fall in love and live happily ever after.
So saving some rich guy from losing his wallet is the last thing I want to do on a Friday night. Especially when he looks like someone who just stepped off the cover of GQ.
Fate seems to have other ideas, though, and every time I turn around, he’s there.
A wicked heat simmers between us, threatening to ignite, and though I’ve been trained to put out the flames, I can’t help but think: What’s the worst that could happen if I let this desire burn out of control?

Blog Tour – Up In Smoke by Kate Meader

 Release Date: February 22

Lives are on the line at Engine 6 … and so are hearts.

 

Newly-minted firefighter Abby Sullivan is exactly where she wants to be: Chicago Fire Department’s Engine 6, the station where her mom blazed a trail as one of the first female firefighters in the city. The first to fall in the line of duty, too. All Abby wants is to succeed, but that’s a tough proposition when people only see a feel-good story, a token woman failing at a man’s job, or the princess in need of protection. And the man tasked with watching her six? 

 

Lieutenant Roman Rossi, the one person she can’t let close. 

 

Having the daughter of his boss and nemesis under his wing shouldn’t be a problem for Roman—he’s a professional and can treat her like any other firefighter rookie. Except she happens to be the gorgeous woman he once shared a slice of cherry pie with, followed by the hottest, sweetest, most pulse-pounding kiss of his life. He didn’t know her name but he had planned to find out.

 

Now Roman knows exactly who Abby is: a threat to his self-control more dangerous than a five-alarm blaze. Lust has no place in the firehouse, and a distraction like Abby with her electric blue eyes, waves of flame-red hair, and freckles Roman wants to map with his tongue, is one he can ill afford. 

 

Because one wrong move … and it could all go up in smoke.

 

Up in Smoke is the first in the brand new Hot in Chicago Rookies series about firefighters navigating the trials of new jobs and sizzling romances as they find their place in the world and the love of a lifetime.

Review – Wicked Heat by Ella Frank

59089442. sy475

Wicked Heat; Chicago Heat #1 
(#1 within a duet)

Publication Date: February 22, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Duet/Hero/Grumpy-Sunshine/Contemporary/MM Romance

Author: Ella Frank

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A hot, sizzling start to an opposites attract romance.

Ryan has watched everyone around him fall in love. He’s so adorkably cute, so why can’t he find his dream man? When he’s rescued from potentially losing his wallet by a grumpy firefighter, Ryan can’t shake the man from his mind and when Jameson continues to cross his path Ryan chalks it up to fate.

Jameson is not cuddly, he’s not personable, he’s not looking for any kind of relationship, friendship or otherwise, but when GQ won’t leave his mind he knows he’s in serious trouble. When Jameson needs to find a new place to live, how does fate mess with him again, but by listing the very room that Ryan is needing to rent out. Could these two be destined to cross paths?

Opposites attract and yet as roommates these two are perfectly matched. Neat, tidy, quiet and super hot!! Okay, that isn’t really a roommate requirement, especially when they probably should keep their hands to each other if they want to make their roommate situation last, but when their chemistry is as off the charts like these two…yum! Their attraction and close quarters only heighten that chemistry.

Will these two burn like a fire and then sizzle out, or can they make what they’ve started work? It will take Ryan learning how to scale the incredibly high walls Jameson has erected.

A delicious beginning to this hot duet, with several cameos from some of Ryan’s closest friends and coworkers.

Review – Up in Smoke by Kate Meader

60150575

Up in Smoke; Hot in Chicago Rookies #1 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: February 22, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Hero Contemporary Romance

Author: Kate Meader

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Insta-attraction, slow burn, hot chemistry romance. This is the first book I’ve read by Kate Meader and I definitely want to dive right back in to another one as soon as possible.

I loved reading about Chicago, a city near and dear to my heart, plus the whole book was page-turning from the adorable pie stealing meet-cute all the way the couples HEA.

Roman Rossi and Abby Sullivan meet on one incredible night in a corner diner. They share a piece of cherry pie and one amazing kiss, ending the night by exchanging numbers. While they might have planned to meet again, destiny had something else in mind as Abby began a new job and Roman is her commanding officer at Engine 6.

Dating Lieutenant Rossi is well out of the limitations Abby has on her dating life. She refuses to jeopardize her career by dating her superior and she also has always refused to fall in love with a firefighter. She saw what it did to her parents and she will never fall down that hole. While she may have enjoyed the time she spent with Roman on their initial meeting, she knows it can never be more, even though every time she’s near him her hormones go haywire. It’s just not worth it.

Just when Roman thought he met someone it turns out the woman he meets is off limits in every sense of the word. Abby is his candidate, she’s also the daughter of the fire commissioner. The man who could ruin his career if he really wanted to. It doesn’t lesson what he feels for the beautiful redhead, but he is a professional and he will not let his hormones dictate how he runs his life.

This book brings a lot of tension, tons of chemistry with great writing and lots of plot. I’m excited to jump back into this world and read more by Kate Meader.

Synopsis:

Lives are on the line at Engine 6 … and so are hearts.

Running an engine crew in the Chicago Fire Department is my dream job, and between that, my awesome kid, and my nosey sister, I lead a pretty great life. Bruised and burned by my marriage, I don’t have time for dating or drama, but I always have time for pie. And when I share a slice of cherry with a sweet redhead, followed by the hottest, dirtiest, most pulse-pounding kiss of my life, I start to rethink the possibilities.

Until that same woman walks into my firehouse and upends my well-ordered world.

Abby Sullivan is now a rookie firefighter on my crew and a threat to my self-control more dangerous than a five-alarm blaze. My job is to watch her six when all I want is to watch her fall into my bed. Lust has no place in the firehouse, and a distraction like Abby with her electric blue eyes, waves of flame-red hair, and freckles I want to map with my tongue, is one I can ill afford.

Because one wrong move … and it could all go up in smoke.

Up in Smoke is the first in the brand new Hot in Chicago Rookies series about firefighters navigating the trials of new jobs and sizzling romances as they find their place in the world and the love of a lifetime.

Review – Say It Like You Mane It by Erin Nicholas

58878963. sy475

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

Publication Date: February 1, 2022

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

Author: Erin Nicholas

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Synopsis:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Or not.

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

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

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

TANGLED UP
By Tia Louise
“Bayside Heroes” – Beck

He’s broody, he’s driven, and he’s coming back to claim what’s his.

“First, do no harm…”
It’s the start of my oath as a doctor, and breaking that oath is how I began my career.
Only I didn’t just do harm, I watched a man die right in front of me.
And not just any man—a man I hated.

I thought his death would bring me peace, but it haunts me to this day.
Every close call sparks memories of what I did to him, to me, to her.
I have to go back and face what I’ve done or end my career.

Seeing her hits me harder than the regret.
She’s still so beautiful with long, dark hair, bright amber eyes, luscious curves.
She still dominates my heart, my mind, my bed.
But she’s different now—stronger, bolder, unafraid.

We’re a mess, tangled up in a web I created.
But I’m determined to heal these wounds, to fix this break.
One thing is certain, I won’t say goodbye to her again.

(A STAND-ALONE “Bayside Heroes” novel. Small-town, second-chance doctor romance with a touch of suspense. No cheating. No cliffhanger.)

Review – Doctor Mistake by J. Saman

59766527. sy475

Doctor Mistake; Boston’s Billionaire Bachelors #2 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: January 4, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Medical/Roommate/Best Friend’s Brother/Workplace Romance

Author: J. Saman

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A lovely, but hard fought relationship with obstacle after obstacle thrown down in front of them, but their heat and fire burns them all down.

Carter Fritz and Grace Hammond’s lives are horribly intertwined. Carter is the attending where Grace is working as a third year resident. Grace has also grown up with the Fritz family and is the best friend to Carter’s younger brother, Oliver.  And when Grace’s life disintegrates right before her eyes, she ends up as Carter’s roommate while she sorts things out.

These two have a ton of heat, but taking things to the next level is complicated at best. While, Carter wants more from Grace, she’s not in the right point in her life professionally, emotionally or romantically to accept more from him. Things are complicated at best, but could they be a mistake?

Doctor Mistake contains a story about a family that may come from money, but decided to put medicine first. I loved being part of this family and jumping into this couples journey. Everything about this book was a brilliant surprise. Carter was one of those surprises that I thoroughly enjoyed. I wasn’t sure about him at first, but he was a lot more than I first expected.

Synopsis:

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

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

New Release – Tangled Up by Tia Louise

Tangled Up by Tia Louise is now live!

TANGLED UP
By Tia Louise
“Bayside Heroes” – Beck

He’s broody, he’s driven, and he’s coming back to claim what’s his.

“First, do no harm…”
It’s the start of my oath as a doctor, and breaking that oath is how I began my career.
Only I didn’t just do harm, I watched a man die right in front of me.
And not just any man—a man I hated.

I thought his death would bring me peace, but it haunts me to this day.
Every close call sparks memories of what I did to him, to me, to her.
I have to go back and face what I’ve done or end my career.

Seeing her hits me harder than the regret.
She’s still so beautiful with long, dark hair, bright amber eyes, luscious curves.
She still dominates my heart, my mind, my bed.
But she’s different now—stronger, bolder, unafraid.

We’re a mess, tangled up in a web I created.
But I’m determined to heal these wounds, to fix this break.
One thing is certain, I won’t say goodbye to her again.

(A STAND-ALONE “Bayside Heroes” novel. Small-town, second-chance doctor romance with a touch of suspense. No cheating. No cliffhanger.)

Review – Tangled Up by Tia Louise

59252438. sy475

Tangled Up; Bayside Heroes #4 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 27, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Medical/Criminal/Second Chance Romance

Author: Tia Louise

Review Rating: 4 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I love Tia Louise books and I’ve been loving this Bayside series, but I admit, Tangled Up was harder to sink my teeth into than the other books in this amazing series.

While I love the premise of a second chance romance (since I’m a product of that in my own personal life, I honestly love this trope), this couple ran hot and cold and I wanted to shove their faces in what they didn’t want to admit so we could stay on the hot side of the story. There were a lot of great moments (don’t get me wrong) I just lost the spark in the in-between moments.

Beck and Carly were a teenage couple that ran into trouble back when they were in college. Beck went on to become a doctor and Carly is a criminal psychologist, both with amazing careers by the way, but neither have really moved on from their great loves (which happen to be each other). When they both are back in their hometown, for reasons, after seven years apart, it seems as if fate has brought them together to reconcile, but it takes a whole lot more than a little hot reconciliation to make up for what happened in the past.

Can these two make up for what they lost before they lose a chance at a future again?

A lot of this story takes place back in their hometown of Eden and there are a lot of new secondary characters that pop up in this small coastal town where Beck and Carly grew up that sound very interesting for future books. While this particular book didn’t hit home with me, I still adore Tia Louise and her writing and this interconnected series has been a huge win overall.

Synopsis:

He’s broody, he’s driven, and he’s coming back to claim what’s his.

“First, do no harm…”
It’s the start of my oath as a doctor, and breaking that oath is how I began my career.
Only I didn’t just do harm, I watched a man die right in front of me.
And not just any man—a man I hated.

I thought his death would bring me peace, but it haunts me to this day.
Every close call sparks memories of what I did to him, to me, to her.
I have to go back and face what I’ve done or end my career.

Seeing her hits me harder than the regret.
She’s still so beautiful with long, dark hair, bright amber eyes, luscious curves.
She still dominates my heart, my mind, my bed.
But she’s different now—stronger, bolder, unafraid.

We’re a mess, tangled up in a web I created.

Review – Fired Up by K.K. Allen

59465868. sy475

Fired Up; Bayside Heroes #3 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 20, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Single Parent/EMT/Contemporary Romance

Author: K.K. Allen

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This insta-attraction, with a dash of fate sprinkled in, is super cute and perfect for all romance lovers.

Asher is a hot EMT with a huge heart. He is completely swoon-worthy from start to finish. Then add in the single mom, Meadow, with her adorable son and this is probably the sweetest romance (with steamy hotness splashed about) that K.K. Allen has ever written.

Asher’s natural born instinct of serve and protect has been with him for a long time. Having served with the military and now with the fire department, his need to care for others runs strong. He is truly a nice guy, so when his first meet-cute moment goes the wrong way when he comes across Meadow at an accident, needless to say, he feels horrible later.

These two seem to be fated, because they not only meet at an accident, but they continue to run into one another multiple times and at different events. While Meadow isn’t set on meeting anyone new in her life, she has a child to raise, a new career to get off the ground, and her life to get sorted, but it’s really hard to say no to a man like Asher, especially when destiny has other plans for them.

Their meeting seems not only set by fate, but a second chance in the romance department for them both. Neither are masters in this field and both have loved and lost in this particular game before. Could they find happiness in each other’s arms or will the stakes prove to be too high?

This is a standalone in the Bayside Heroes series and while other Bayside characters pop up, it is not crucial to have read the other books to understand this plotline.

Screwed Up by Harloe Rae is now live!

Dane Owens is a disaster waiting to happen.
Maybe that’s why I can’t look away.
He plays fast and loose with no intention of slowing down.

Link; Guarding Her #9 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 9, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Intrigue Romance

Author: Anna Brooks

Review Rating: 4 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A mashup of Warrenville and Guarding Her series characters, which made this book an exciting read with all the character catch ups.

Lincoln is the ultimate alpha; dominate and decision making for Oakley, which is good for a lot of things because Oakley’s ultimate way of handling things is running away from every decision.

When Oakley is attacked in her own home Lincoln is there to take care of her, plus make sure she can’t run from him or her problems this time around. He will protect her at all costs, but it could cost them their hearts.

Synopsis:

Book 9 in the Guarding Her series.

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

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

Meet Kandi

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

Washed Up; Bayside Heros #1 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 6, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Age Gap/Forbidden/Hero Contemporary Romance

Author: Kandi Steiner

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A second chance at life, filled with all the emotions and a beautifully written romance.

I had so many emotions and feelings come to the surface when I read this book. First and foremost, this interconnected series is going to be amazing. Several secondary characters within this story, which are featured in upcoming stories of their own, well…I’m just going to say the hints dropped within this book look very enticing.

Amanda Parks has recently escaped an abusive marriage. While I can’t personally say I’ve been through that, what I really empathized with was her mental state on basically everything. From being a forty-seven year old woman starting new adventures to her body image to dealing with her son when he still saw her as his mom (true yes), but she is also a woman with a lot of life still left to live.

Amanda is a woman who has been cast in a role that many of us have as a wife, mother, homemaker, but what happens once that ends and life still goes on around us?

Greg Weston is the perfect person to show Amanda that life still goes on when Amanda struggles with those very questions. Greg is thirteen years her junior and her son’s best friend, or he was when he was a teenage boy, that is also when Greg had a crush on Amanda. Sixteen years later he’s no longer a teenager, Greg is now a doctor and those feelings he once harbored for his best friends mother have morphed into something much stronger.

Greg challenges Amanda to discover new adventures, like kayaking or rock wall climbing. He also calls her his accountability partner because he too gets lost in the cycle of; work, eat, sleep, repeat. They create a list of things they want to do to push themselves to get out or even stay in, things they’ve never done or want to do, but that they have to do together so they don’t wither up and find that life has passed them by. It’s a wonderful plan that just made the entire book flow and build that chemistry between them.

Greg is really a great guy and I loved his old soul. He held a ton of integrity which made the fall for his character super easy. Their road to love was a slow build, but they had a ton of chemistry from the very beginning. All of the secondary characters were easy to like and I’m looking forward to jumping into their stories as well. Watch out Bayside here I come!

It was just another day in the Emergency Department — until she was wheeled in through the doors.

Kandi Steiner has revealed the cover for Washed Up!

Releasing: December 6, 2021

Cover Design: Kandi Steiner

It was just another day in the Emergency Department — until she was wheeled in through the doors.

Amanda Parks, my childhood best friend’s mom who I may or may not have secretly kissed before leaving for college.

I haven’t seen her in over a decade, and in so many ways, she hasn’t changed.

Same killer curves.
Same hypnotizing eyes.
Same reaction from my heart when I see her.

But something new?
There isn’t a ring on her finger anymore…
And I’m much more of a man than I was at eighteen.

Washed Up is a stand-alone age gap medical romance coming this winter!

Meet Kandi

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

Cover Reveal - 2021, New Releases

Cover Reveal – UP IN SMOKE by Kate Meader

 Release Date: February 22

Lives are on the line at Engine 6 … and so are hearts.

 

Newly-minted firefighter Abby Sullivan is exactly where she wants to be: Chicago Fire Department’s Engine 6, the station where her mom blazed a trail as one of the first female firefighters in the city. The first to fall in the line of duty, too. All Abby wants is to succeed, but that’s a tough proposition when people only see a feel-good story, a token woman failing at a man’s job, or the princess in need of protection. And the man tasked with watching her six? 

 

Lieutenant Roman Rossi, the one person she can’t let close. 

 

Having the daughter of his boss and nemesis under his wing shouldn’t be a problem for Roman—he’s a professional and can treat her like any other firefighter rookie. Except she happens to be the gorgeous woman he once shared a slice of cherry pie with, followed by the hottest, sweetest, most pulse-pounding kiss of his life. He didn’t know her name but he had planned to find out.

 

Now Roman knows exactly who Abby is: a threat to his self-control more dangerous than a five-alarm blaze. Lust has no place in the firehouse, and a distraction like Abby with her electric blue eyes, waves of flame-red hair, and freckles Roman wants to map with his tongue, is one he can ill afford. 

 

Because one wrong move … and it could all go up in smoke.

 

Up in Smoke is the first in the brand new Hot in Chicago Rookies series about firefighters navigating the trials of new jobs and sizzling romances as they find their place in the world and the love of a lifetime.

Review – Dare Me by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

58547655. sy475

Dare Me; Dare to Try #2 
(#2 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: August 30, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Hero Contemporary/MM Romance

Author: Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Sweet, emotional, funny, and full of steam, the Dare to Try trilogy is turning out to be my favorite co-written series by Ella and Brooke.

Kieran Bailey may be a firefighter, which is hot all by itself, but aside from his hot profession (I love puns) he’s also endearing, has his moments of adorableness, and is my favorite of the Bailey brothers, especially when Sean, his older brother is razzing him. Did I mention Kieran is adorable? While he came to grips about his attraction to Bash, it’s Bash who ran when he began to feel something for the lieutenant.

Kieran didn’t sit idly by when Bash returned to Georgia. Walking into Bash’s world, he meets his friends, takes his first vacation in, well Kieran doesn’t really remember, but getting to know the man who had enamored him back in Chicago while on Bash’s home turf only solidifies the feelings he’d been feeling even more, but could it work in the long term? Vacations have to end some time, but could they make a relationship work long distance?

Bash is beautiful and fun, a perfect match to Kieran’s more straightlaced ways (more puns, LOL). Bash brings out a playful side to Kieran, a normal workaholic, and Kieran protects Bash, even from himself, a man who looks out for everyone else, but himself. I love how these two wouldn’t seem like a good fit on paper, but they fill in each others spaces so perfectly, if only they could find out how to make their relationship work long term.

I’m very excited to see how the puzzle will all fit together in the final book of this trilogy. I’ve fallen in love with Bash and Kieran and cannot wait to see how it all plays out in the end.

Synopsis:

Dare Me is part two of the Dare to Try trilogy and should only be read after Dare You.

The moment Bash “Miss Razzle Dazzle” Vogel sashayed into Lieutenant Kieran Bailey’s life, both their worlds were turned upside down. What started as an easy friendship quickly morphed into sizzling chemistry that neither one could deny.

But what Kieran knows better than anyone is that when a fire burns this hot and heavy, someone’s bound to get burned. Do they dare to risk being together? Or will the flame of this hot match consume them both?

This series must be read in the following order:
Dare You (book one)
Dare Me (book two)
Truth or Dare (book three)

Blog Tour – Dare You by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Dare You, the first book in the all new sexy and playful Dare to Try Trilogy from USA Today bestselling authors Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine is available now!

From Ella Frank’s Prime Time series and Brooke Blaine’s South Haven series comes an explosive spin-off of both worlds.

Sebastian “Bash” Vogel, the magnetic, cross-dressing CEO of AnaVoge, has long been a lone island when it comes to his personal life. Self-assured and playful, he’s never left wanting for suitors—but Bash isn’t looking for something permanent. He’s more than fulfilled with his company and his closest friends, and no one is going to shake up the status quo.
That is, until he’s thrown over the shoulder of one of Chicago’s finest and hauled out of a burning building.
Kieran Bailey, a sexy, hardworking lieutenant at Station 73, has been reaping the rewards of being crowned the city’s hottest fireman, which his crew never lets him forget. So many ladies, so little time. So when he rescues the latest damsel in distress, no one is more shocked than him to realize he’s played prince charming to another…prince.

But Bash isn’t like anyone Kieran has ever met, and soon his world is turned upside down as he becomes more intrigued by the enigmatic man that he can’t stay away from.

They’re from two different worlds. This could never work. But what if…they dared to try?

Dare You is book one of the Dare to Try trilogy, which must be read in order. Prior reading is not required, but is always a fantastic idea for maximum enjoyment.

And then a new girl moves into town…and suddenly everything Jake’s always thought about relationships goes up in flames.

Hope moved halfway across the country for a new start after being burned by a charming bad boy. She has two goals. Thirty minutes of set-the-sheets-on-fire sex to relieve her of her near-virgin status. Then she’s going to get serious about finding the perfect dad for her son.

Review – My Kind of Perfect by Nikki Ash

May be an image of one or more people and text that says 'MY KIND perfect OF NIKKI ASH'

My Kind of Perfect; Finding Love #3 
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: May 27, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Roommate/Friends-to-Lovers/Contemporary Romance

Author: Nikki Ash

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Sweet and romantic and the perfect couple to round out the Finding Love series.

Chase and Georgia are roommates sort of by circumstance. When Chase’s marriage fell apart he originally began sleeping on the coach of his best friend’s apartment (where Georgia was also living with her sister), but when Alec and Lexi fell in love and moved out Chase moved from the couch into a now empty bedroom.

While Georgia and Chase weren’t exactly friends at the time, it was certainly easier to live with someone familiar than finding a new roommate and starting all over again. Crossing boundaries and forging a friendship eventually began, but along the way, Chase and Georgia found something greater than they ever expected. Not exactly a perfect path, but it was their path which made it perfect for the two of them.

Letting down your walls and letting someone in isn’t always easy, especially when you have emotional baggage. Chase was crushed from his divorce and Georgia was looking for something wrapped up in perfect due to her upbringing. Chase isn’t looking for forever and Georgia is a long term girl. These two are complete opposites when it comes to love, but their friendship grows so strong it’s hard not to see where they could go in the future. Eventually their hearts catch up, but their perfect road is windy and twisted.

Chase certainly brought out the best in Georgia, she came out of her shell and discovered new sides of herself all thanks to his encouragement. The same can be said for Georgia calming Chase and finding the good man he was before his marriage blew up. It says a lot about a person when they bring out the best qualities in you and not only enhance them but highlight them in the best way possible. Chase and Georgia did that for each other bringing joy back into their lives while they also discovered new things about themselves.

The story really flowed and made my heart soar, with a few heart stopping moments, but overall a beautiful story.

Synopsis:

My Kind of Perfect, a roommates to lovers, single dad romance, is coming May 27th ! 🦋
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.*

Review – Taggart Family Values by Lexi Blake

57725032. sy475

Taggart Family Values; Masters and Mercenaries #21.5 
(#21.5 within a series)

Publication Date: May 11, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Suspense/Mercenary/BDSM/Collection

Author: Lexi Blake

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I could read Big Tag all day, every day!! I love, love, love this entire series and I’m saying I was excited for taking the journey into the past with my favorite people and getting a glimpse into the future hardly begins to describe it, but it’s where I’ll begin.

Ian Taggart has been the staple, the backbone, the driving force behind the M&M franchise and he is one of the main reasons why I have a huge love affair with this series.

I jump into every book waiting with anticipation for Ian to make his appearance. He always offers up his wit and sarcasm, much to his employees and family’s groening dismay, they hardly ever listen, but it’s hilariously funny and almost always on point. The sarcastic, meddling, lemon-dessert eating Dom is what I live for and I love the Lexi Blake has let Ian grow with the series because I know I will never tire of the man and his family.

Taggart Family Values is a conglomeration of Ian’s life and his family, both through blood and man made. This entire book made me smile from cover to cover. For any fan of the series, this book is a MUST addition. If you’ve caught any of the short stories or novellas of Ian and Charlotte’s relationship, or wondered about them because you never read them before, well you no longer have to wonder because they are now in one location, along with two new stories that totally made me squeeeeee with glee like the fan girl I am.

Even though I’ve read most of the past stories over the last decade (can you believe it’s been a decade!!) I loved reminiscing over Ian and Charlie and how they met, had their children, tried to have a date night, etc, and so forth. This is the ultimate place to laugh and giggle over the big guy himself who always has advice for everyone else while laughing at all the dumb things he does in his own life. I truly never get tired of Ian Taggart and fans will love a look at what Lexi Blake has brewing for the future of this series.

Synopsis:

From Ian and Charlotte’s first meeting in Paris to a look into the future, Taggart Family Values chronicles Masters and Mercenaries’ favorite family through a series of short stories and novellas. Includes one brand new short story and one new novella. Lexi hopes readers will have a blast connecting with Ian and Charlotte and all their little monsters!

Taggart Family Values includes the novellas Paradise City, Sweet Child o’ Mine, Homecoming, and Countdown. It also includes the short stories Adam Tells All, Make Lemonade, Rough Night, and Stuck at the Office.

Some of the stories were previously published in newsletters and cookbooks.
