New Release – No Time To Lie by Lexi Blake

Their love may be endgame.

No Time to Lie, an all-new action-packed, second chance romance in the Masters and Mercenaries: Reloaded Series from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake is now available!

A grandmaster of lies and deception

Drake Radcliffe has spent half his life in the shadows. Recruited by the CIA when he was barely out of high school, Drake doesn’t know how to have a normal life. While most people his age were playing sports or video games, he was playing spy games with the world’s most dangerous adversaries. It has been a life filled with thrills and adrenaline, but it’s also been lonely. All that might change when a mistake from Drake’s past rears its ugly head and he’s forced to face the only woman he ever loved—the one he’d vowed to stay away from.

A beacon of love and compassion

Taylor Cline committed the cardinal sin in her world—she fell for another operative. Drake was everything she wanted in a man, until he broke her heart. She had one unforgettable night with him and then he never looked back. Her future threatened and family in ruins, she shut down and moved on, hoping to never see him again. Just as she is beginning to put it all behind her, a critical assignment puts her under his authority and right back in his arms.

A deadly mission that brings them together

From the wilds of Wyoming to the glittering cities of Europe, Drake and Taylor must race against time to uncover the truth and expose an evil organization. The stakes couldn’t be higher. If they fail, the world could crumble. If they succeed, they could finally have everything their hearts desire.

Review – No Time to Lie by Lexi Blake

No Time to Lie; Masters and Mercenaries Reloaded #4, M&M #25
(#4 within a series, #25 within the entire series)

Publication Date: September 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Suspense/BDSM/Intrigue Romance

Author: Lexi Blake

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
The big, loud, and fantastic McKay-Taggart family is back and I love every single time they are all together on the page. This time CIA operative Drake Radcliffe is front and center, but since he’s worked with McKay-Taggart and this particular op is tied heavily to one of their own, of course they are right there lending a hand and lending all kinds of love and life advice to Drake and his beautiful love interest, Taylor Cline.

Drake is looking to finally bring in Julia Ennis, dead or alive. She’s done a lot of damage to several ops at McKay-Taggart since her resurrection from the dead. That’s right, Julia was thought to be dead, but it turns out she is very much alive, and she is also Drake’s sister and was also Kyle’s partner. Soooooo many ties begin to come together, or perhaps unravel, either way you look at it, it’s a dream come true for a FANatic like myself.

While the team is working on this huge op, Drake is also working on his second opportunity with the woman of his dreams, Taylor Cline. She is the one who got away, or perhaps the one that he fudged up with when he let his job get in the way. Now he finally has a chance to get things right and even though they are chasing down the same bad guy or girl in this case, he’s not letting opportunity pass him by and he’s set on winning a place back in her heart.

Drake is one big, sappy puppy when it comes to Taylor most of the time, but he’s also the perfect Dom when the time comes for it. Basically he’s pretty perfect and I love every inch of his character. Taylor is a great match for him on every level and I look forward to seeing how their relationship molds and shapes in future books.

Speaking of the future, or maybe more like the past…hmmmm….I loved the past characters that popped up in this book and the body positivity that always shines through, no matter what age or length of marriage, it’s probably one of the biggest things that draws me back to Lexi’s books over and over again. Her characters are not only bada$&, but they are empowering. Ian’s speeches, usually about what his employee is doing wrong always make me laugh, but he also tends to be right, just not in a subtle way – at all. Another thing that draws me back to Lexi’s books is Ian’s humor, which I could read over and over, but he might get an even bigger head if we let him have his way too much. Lastly, there is nothing more endearing than having that special place for people who feel like a misfit or outcast and Ian Taggart, or should I say, Lexi has built a world where everyone fits in and is accepted. Her books have a way of doing just that and no matter who you are or where you’ve come from there is a place within the big, crazy family of McKay-Taggart.

Synopsis:
A grandmaster of lies and deception

Drake Radcliffe has spent half his life in the shadows. Recruited by the CIA when he was barely out of high school, Drake doesn’t know how to have a normal life. While most people his age were playing sports or video games, he was playing spy games with the world’s most dangerous adversaries. It has been a life filled with thrills and adrenaline, but it’s also been lonely. All that might change when a mistake from Drake’s past rears its ugly head and he’s forced to face the only woman he ever loved—the one he pushed away.

A beacon of love and compassion

Taylor Cline committed the cardinal sin for an analyst—she fell for the operative she was working for. Drake was everything she wanted in a man, until he broke her heart. She had one unforgettable night with him and then he never looked back. Her career threatened, she shut down and moved on, hoping to never see him again. Just as she is beginning to put it all behind her, a critical assignment puts her under his authority and right back in his arms.

A deadly mission that brings them together

From the wilds of Wyoming to the glittering cities of Europe, Drake and Taylor must race against time to uncover the truth and expose an evil organization. The stakes couldn’t be higher. If they fail, the world could crumble. If they succeed, they could finally have everything their hearts desire.

Cover Reveal – LESSON LEARNED by Marie James

Release Date: October 13
They call me a soldier of fortune, a hired gun, a man with no morals only looking to get paid—a mercenary.
That’s true… mostly.
From where I stand, I don’t see it as a bad thing.
Getting paid to do the dirty work, to take the jobs saner people refuse is my bread and butter.
I love the danger, the thrill, the warmth that attempts to spark something in my cold, black heart.
Why shouldn’t I get paid for that?
Does it really matter if I’m indifferent about who I step on to succeed? The job always gets done, and I never look back.
The same went for Lauren Vos, an undercover FBI agent working in some of the most dangerous trafficking circles known to man.
Our paths crossed on a job years ago, and somehow fate has thrown us together once again.
Only this time around she isn’t interested in letting me forget.
The problem for her is that I’m not the same man she thought she left for dead.

Let’s see…where to begin…

I’m inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we’re doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master’s degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there’s usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I’m not writing; I’m reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I’m reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it’s gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.

Blog Tour – Filthy by Tia Louise

FILTHY by Tia Louise is now live!


FILTHY

By Tia Louise

Good girls are saved by princes, but my savior is a monster.

After my father died and my family splintered, I became a target, a pawn in a game I didn’t know I was playing.

Then he appeared–dark, dangerous, tormented, and always just within reach.

He makes me feel something I lost years ago: Safe.

And he thinks he can keep me at arm’s length.

Once upon a time I was a hero, until the sins of my father caught up with me, and I was forced into darkness.

I should’ve died in that fire. Instead, I served evil men, until I risked it all by walking away.

Now I’m a wanted man. At any time, I could be taken down for what I owe.

What I don’t expect to find in my hiding place is her–broken, beautiful, so damn tempting.

I shouldn’t touch her with my filthy hands. I was hired to keep her safe.

But every day it gets harder, then she starts sneaking into my bed.

Together, we’re filthy, but together, we can find our way through the flames.

(FILTHY is a stand-alone, bodyguard, romantic suspense novel. It contains a fierce, wounded alpha-protector and the filthy girl he’s hired to protect… No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

Blog Tour – Wicked Flame by Ella Frank

He’s ready to steal his heart and never give it back.

Wicked Flame, a sizzling MM romance and the hot conclusion to the Chicago Heat Duet from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank, is out now!

Jameson
Life is hard. I learned that at an early age growing up on the South Side of Chicago. I accepted it, even came to expect it. With a sister who was a constant source of worry, and a track record of losing anyone even remotely close to me, trouble seemed to follow me no matter where I turned.

Some people were born lucky. I was just born.

That’s what I used to believe, anyway, until GQ. The gorgeous guy in the fancy clothes who for some reason decided to look twice at me. He gave me a place to call my own, a space to feel safe, and he made me believe in the impossible—that love was more than just a four-letter word.

Ryan
Life is unexpected. I learned that just recently when I walked into a bar on the South Side and found the love of my life—Jameson Clarke.

He’s everything I’ve always wanted, and yet somehow even better than I imagined. He’s brave, brash, protective of those he loves, and under all that bravado is a vulnerability that calls to my very soul.

Jameson’s a storm cloud, but he thinks I’m the sun. If that’s true, then I’m determined to break through the shadows of his past and steal his heart the way he’s stolen mine.

Wicked Flame; Chicago Heat #2
(#2 within a duet)

Publication Date: May 24, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Book Duet/Opposites Attract/MM Romance

Author: Ella Frank

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A wonderful finish to this opposites attract book duet.

Everyone always wants a bad boy, but I want to state for the record that Ryan Carrigan is the best guy to have by your side. Whether it’s in a crisis, for daily organization, for loving hugs, for a sweet smile with his cute blush, and I have to throw out there he has the best trash talking competitive side which is totally speaking my language. Yes, Ryan is totally my pick hands down every day of the week, and I believe Jameson would agree with me.

Jameson needs Ryan’s loving side to offset the bad boy in him. He did not have an easy life growing up and as Jameson lets down his high built walls he realizes just how much he needs Ryan in his life. These two have a few bumps in the road before they reach their happily ever after, but I really loved watching Jameson open up his heart and Ryan truly shine as he fell deeper in love.

My favorite part of this book was when Jameson and Ryan had dinner with two other opposites attract couples, that also happened to be two of my favorite couples within this Chicago world. There must be something about a grouchy, stoic man falling for a happy, sunshiny guy that just does it for me.

Review – Wicked As Seduction by Shayla Black

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.

Synopsis:

He’s grumpy, rude, and honestly, not that likeable at all. Hardly my “dream” guy.

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?

Wicked Heat is book 1 of 2 in Ryan Carrigan & Jameson Clarke’s story

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?

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.
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” romance. Small-town, second-chance doctor romance with a touch of suspense. No cheating. No cliffhanger.)

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.

Review – Link by Anna Brooks

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.
