New Release – Warm Up by Cathryn Fox

Title: Warm Up
Series: Nova Scotia Storms #2
Author: Cathryn Fox
Genre: New Adult Sports Romance
Release Date: July 5, 2022
BLURB
He’s a defenseman on the academy’s hockey team – a well-known player on and off the ice.
It’s a reputation he wears proudly…flaunts, even. The only one he has to look out for is himself. No one expects anything else.
Thanks to past mistakes, I have a whole lot of responsibilities outside of the academy, and have no choice but to put others in my life first. They count on me, but you know what? I’m lonely.
I guess that’s why I got all tangled up in the guy whose only focus is on hockey – and fun.
What I hadn’t meant to do, however, was fall head over heels for the player who only wanted one thing from me. Can you say been there done that?
But I think, underneath it all, there’s a lot more to him than even he knows and maybe his choices aren’t his own. Maybe someone else is pulling the strings.
Either way, when past mistakes catch up with me again, the team’s biggest player must decide whether to follow the path carved out for him and walk away from me, or shape his own future, and become the man he keeps well hidden.

EXCERPT
“You drive a truck?”
“You can take the boy out of the farm, but you can’t take the farm out of the boy. Come on, let me drive you the rest of the way.”
She hesitates for a brief second. “It’s not that far.”
“You’re not the one lugging this thing around,” I tease and lift her guitar.
She grins. “I’m quite capable of carrying my own guitar.”
“I have no doubt,” I say and mean it. I get the sense that Kennedy is the kind of girl who takes care of herself and everyone around her. “But come on, hop in.”
She nods and we walk to my truck. I click my fob to unlock the doors and place her guitar on the back bench seat. She slides into the front, and I circle the vehicle and get into the driver’s seat.
“Ohmigod, Matt,” she shrieks and picks a pair of my boxer shorts up off the floor, holds them up using two fingers, wrinkles her nose and asks. “Do I want to know?” I snatch them from her and toss them into the back. “Is your room this bad? Was Daisy right?”
“No and no and no.” She blinks and one eye half closes as she tries to piece that together. “You probably don’t want to know, but I’m going to tell you.” I start the truck and back out of my spot. “They probably fell out of my hockey bag after our Wednesday night game in Cape Breton. No, my room isn’t that bad.” I toss her an apologetic look, because it’s not that good either. “And no, Daisy was not right. Daisy is never right.” She’s still giving me the side eye as I pull onto the road. “What?” I ask.
“Nothing.”
“Are you telling me I won’t find your panties in the passenger seat of your car? Like it’s not a thing?”

Title: Tight Ends & Tiaras
Author: Lex Martin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 5, 2022
BLURB
USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin delivers a swoony, single dad romance about a college football player and the fake girlfriend he knows he should resist.
Football is one hundred percent the focus of my life—until a squawking toddler, with a temper to rival my own, lands in my lap and flips my life upside down.
I’ll never be Dad of the Year. Anyone will tell you that. Except maybe Sienna, my sister’s former roommate, who somehow manages to make my broody ass laugh and sees something in me no one else does.
When Sienna offers to let me and my little princess move in with her, I’m not sure if it’s to help or because she wants revenge on my teammate and long-time rival, who broke her heart.
Either way, I’m game. Because I need to get my ex off my back, and Sienna doesn’t mind pretending to be my girlfriend.
Only neither of us is ready for the sparks that fly between us or the consequences when they do.
★ What you can expect:
– sexy single dad
– fake dating
– sports romance
– slow burn but steamy
– opposites attract
– college football
– small town

Blog Tour – Dark Knight by Tracy Lorraine

Release Date: June 30

For years I’ve watched her.

Wanted her.

Craved her.

But I never, ever touched her…

Until that night.

When I caved and took what wasn’t mine to take.

The innocent girl I watched from the shadows grew into a tempting goddess who deserved better than my darkness.

One look. One touch. One mistake.

She didn’t just see me… she saw through me.

Revealing my identity was a price I wasn’t willing to pay.

But I was wrong.

She bought me with her touch.

I walked away once, and if I know what’s good for me, I’ll do it again.

But my best intentions are about to be obliterated…

When I find her in the one place she shouldn’t be.

Covering for her means risking the wrath of her family.

The longer I’m forced to keep this secret, the less I care about what it could cost me.

And you know what they say about bad behaviour?

The same thing as good deeds…

They shouldn’t go unpunished.

Dear reader,

Dark Knight is the first book in Calli and Batman’s story, and the next trilogy in the Knight’s Ridge Empire series. If you like your alphas dark and your romance full of angst, then you’re in the right place!

Review – Tight Ends and Tiaras by Lex Martin

60384731. sy475

Tight Ends & Tiaras; Varsity Dads #2
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: July 5, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Small Town/Friends-to-Lovers/Single Dad/Sports Romance

Author: Lex Martin

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I am totally swimming in all the swooney feels of Tight Ends and Tiaras.

Loved, loved, loved this amazing single dad book. Touching on so many emotions while also covering RL topics like anxiety, therapy, and panic attacks. I was impressed by how well Martin covered mental health and touched by the care and consideration she was able to weave into this fictional story.

Tight Ends and Tiaras can be read as a complete stand alone, but if you’ve read The Varsity Dad Dilemma then you’ve met Ben Rodriguez and Sierra Cruz. Sierra was a roommate to Ben’s sister, Gabby, which is one reason why Sierra never made a move on Ben in the past and vice versa, but there is a host of reasons between them that didn’t aline their stars together until now, but I’ll let you discover them and enjoy reading it for yourself.

These two have quite the tangled mess right from the get go and that is even before Ben finds out he has a three year old daughter that he never knew about. Throw in their chemistry, which sparks right from the very beginning, and this book never once lets off the gas.

Ben and Sierra just have that IT factor. That something that makes couples super likeable and makes the reading enjoyable from page one until the very end. Their story carries all the emotions, points where I needed a tissue to wipe my eyes and other times a fan to cool down my face, basically, this book is excellent! Aside from a few characters I wanted to round-house kick in the face multiple times, but that is probably why the drama portion was extra good.

The perfect blend of secondary characters with the right amount of three year old cuteness. I love this single dad world Martin has created and can’t wait for more.

Synopsis:
Football is one hundred percent the focus of my life—until a squawking toddler, with a temper to rival my own, lands in my lap and flips my life upside down.

I’ll never be Dad of the Year. Anyone will tell you that. Except maybe Sienna, my sister’s former roommate, who somehow manages to make my broody ass laugh and sees something in me no one else does.

When Sienna offers to let me and my little princess move in with her, I’m not sure if it’s to help or because she wants revenge on my teammate and long-time rival, who broke her heart.

Either way, I’m game. Because I need to get my ex off my back, and Sienna doesn’t mind pretending to be my girlfriend.

Only neither of us is ready for the sparks that fly between us or the consequences when they do.

★ What you can expect:
– single dad
– small Texas town
– sports romance (football)
– college (seniors)
– fake dating
– friends to lovers
– diverse backgrounds
– slow burn but steamy!

Review – The Revenge by Tijan

59808327

The Revenge; The Insiders #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: September 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Intrigue Romance

Author: Tijan

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars4.5 stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This is the third and final book in the Insider trilogy. I won’t beat around the bush…I had a hard time diving into this last book, or perhaps I should say, I had a hard time staying focused during this final book.

For the first 60% of the book the story lagged. Honestly, there just wasn’t a lot of meat to hold my interest. However, the final 40% of the book is where the action and culmination of everything really lies. Once I reached this point I couldn’t put the book down, it just felt like forever until I reached it.

Did I love the ending…yes. Was everything tied up…for sure. Were there more twists to get there…no doubt. However, it just takes a really, really long time to get there.

I did enjoy the moments with Bailey and her brother Matt or Batt as the two of them call themselves when they are out sleuthing together. I have enjoyed watching him grow throughout the trilogy and become less of a douchebag.

Overall, I did enjoy the this book since it ties up the whole trilogy, but it did lag in spots. A 4.5 read overall.

Synopsis:
The Revenge is the taut, edgy, sexy, explosive conclusion to The Insiders trilogy by New York Times and USA Today bestseller Tijan!

Bailey and Kash were used to living in the shadows. Now they are thrust into the public eye. Together, they can do anything, but undeniable danger and seemingly insurmountable challenges threaten the love and passion that binds them.

1. Bailey is reeling from the greatest loss she has ever suffered.

2. Enemies are closing in.

3. Even bigger secrets and twists are coming to light.

Win or lose, for Bailey and Kash, everything is on the line.

The series must be read in order for the best enjoyment:

The Insiders (The Insiders Trilogy, #1) The Damaged (The Insiders Trilogy, #2)

Dark Knight; Empire Knight #10
(#1 within a trilogy, #10 within a series)

Publication Date: June 30, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Mafia/Dark Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A dark, obsessive man is my new love. Batman and Calli bring the heat along with a tension packed story.

Have I ever mentioned that Batman is my diehard, absolute favorite superhero? The broody loaner who has a huge chip on his shoulder, but always saves the day and don’t get me started on ALL of the gadgets…can you imagine what he would have for the bedroom…yum!! Well, Lorraine brings a delicious twist to the Dark Knight in her new trilogy and he fits the mold for dark, obsessive and just a little off his rocker mold, and I’m totally in love already. Batman is completely obsessed with Calli and yet….doesn’t feel worthy of her. This emotional tug-of-war within himself is soooooo good. What is he hiding and where will this obsession lead? I’m on the edge with where his story will lead.

Calli also surprised me with her spunk and fire as she has finally stepped into this world. Calli has always hated her role of being deemed a princess, but she didn’t know how to break free of it either. I feel she’s going to have a lot of character growth over this trilogy and I’m totally here for it. Calli is torn between her own obsession of what she wants and what she desires, not only in men, but in her life. Born a girl in a male dominated mafia world, she feels stifled, and I was so unprepared for the tension and love triangles that came out of how she felt, but I LOVED every moment of it.

Tracy totally upped her writing again, as this Empire world continues to grow, and I especially loved this new couple and can’t wait for more!!

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

She’s the mafia princess he was meant to stay away from.

And he did.

Until that one night when he was able to hide his identity and his darkness under a different kind of mask.

But one taste wasn’t enough.

Only the next time their paths cross, his inner demon is truly exposed.

Can she handle it, or will his darkness send her running back to her castle and smothered life?

Dear Reader,

This is the full length book for Calli and Batman that started in the Bully God anthology which is set within my dark mafia Knight’s Ridge Empire series.

Review – Hold Me Close by Siobhan Davis

60728623. sy475

Hold Me Close; All of Me #3 
(novella within a series)

Publication Date: June 30, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Novella Epilogue/New Adult/Contemporary Romance

Author: Siobhan Davis

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This is an emotional epilogue novella of one of my all time favorite duets!!
The All of Me duet was one of the best, and most emotional, stories I’ve ever read and reading this epilogue was a heart-twisting, but perfect piece of the pie I didn’t know I was missing.

As a parent, you truly believe you are doing the best for your child. I know the best intentions are always in the front of my mind when it comes to my own children so I know when it came to Vivian and Dillon’s hard won love story, it was also front and center for them.

The hard part of being a parent is never knowing what the ramifications will be on the decisions you make. Every stroke of a butterfly’s wings makes the slightest change in an outcome, at least that is what they say…Bodie and Easton are living products of the choices their parents made years before, but as parents all we see is the beauty of those choices, but as the child in any family…well, life always looks very different. Especially when you are a teenager.

Siobhan never fails to wring every last drop of emotional wreckage out of me, which I absolutely love. I’m soooooooo happy that this novella exists, even with all the hard and twisty turns it took. For the best enjoyment Hold Me Close needs to be read after reading the All of Me duet.

Synopsis:

Sons pay for the sins of their fathers…

Bodhi and Easton Lancaster O’Donoghue have grown up sheltered from the truth. Until it’s time for their parents to reveal what happened and how it shaped the events that came later.

Bodhi is quiet. An intelligent, introspective boy who hides his pain deep inside. Shattered by the harsh reality of the past, he spirals into a dark place where no one can reach him.

Easton loves his brother fiercely and has always been there for him. Despite his own grief and confusion, he tries his best to support Bodhi—even if he seems determined to push everyone away.

Vivien and Dillon knew this moment would come. Yet nothing prepared them for the massive fall-out. As Bodhi retreats, and Easton struggles, they fight hard to keep their family together.

Before history repeats itself and they suffer more devastating loss.He didn’t find peace on the beach. He found Reyna. A woman on the run. His family took her under their wing, but he wasn’t so quick to trust the woman with a boat-full of secrets. A gorgeous roommate that surprised him at every turn was the last thing he needed.

It was impossible for them to deny the sparks igniting between them. As they get lost in their passion, a killer lurks waiting to strike and take everything away.

Review – Warm Up by Cathryn Fox

61078763. sy475

Warm Up; Scotia Storms #2
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: July 2022

Genre/Tropes: Single Mom/New Adult/Sports Romance

Author: Cathryn Fox

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Warm Up is sweetly endearing and full of all the warm, buttery, never-want-to-stop-reading feels.

Matt has only ever had one purpose in life, hockey. He’s never had to focus on anything or anyone else, but as he’s reaching the end of his college career and the NHL life is looming, all the shallowness of having nothing else or noone else to worry about is beginning to settle within him, and well…the deeper waters of life begin to look less scary. When Matt meets Kennedy he’s instantly hooked and it really hits him that he might not exactly be prepared for her and all of her life experiences, but for the first time in his life he’d actually like to try.

Kennedy is a single mother, going to school and has two jobs that barely make ends meet. She definitely doesn’t have time to date, but perhaps a little one on one action with a hot hockey player would sooth the itch. When Matt walks into her life she thinks she might have found a solution to solve one of her problems. It’s been way too long and she knows all about his reputation so it should be easy to walk away, except when it isn’t. Matt ends up being way deeper than she initially thought and the moment he meets her daughter…ovary explosion!

Matt and Kennedy shine and radiate when they are around one another. Neither of them are relationship gurus, but their intimacy and sweetness roll off the pages and they become better versions of themselves by being together. That is what love does. It is the small moments that all bundle into a lifetime of big ones. It’s the fact that someone makes your life better just by being in your presence and Warm Up is one of those stories that made me warm up from the inside just by reading it.

Synopsis:
He’s a defenseman on the academy’s hockey team – a well-known player on and off the ice.

It’s a reputation he wears proudly…flaunts, even. The only one he has to look out for is himself. No one expects anything else.

Thanks to past mistakes, I have a whole lot of responsibilities outside of the academy, and have no choice but to put others in my life first. They count on me, but you know what? I’m lonely.

I guess that’s why I got all tangled up in the guy whose only focus is on hockey – and fun.

What I hadn’t meant to do, however, was fall head over heels for the player who only wanted one thing from me. Can you say been there done that?

But I think, underneath it all, there’s a lot more to him than even he knows and maybe his choices aren’t his own. Maybe someone else is pulling the strings.

Either way, when past mistakes catch up with me again, the team’s biggest player must decide whether to follow the path carved out for him and walk away from me, or shape his own future, and become the man he keeps well hidden.

Cover Reveal – Bitter Sweet Heart by H. Hunting

Bitter Sweet Heart, an angsty and sizzling, forbidden age gap New Adult romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting writing as H. Hunting is coming September 1st, and we have the sinfully hot cover!

From the outside looking in, I live a charmed life: hockey legend for a father, my own promising future in the league, a great family, awesome friends. It’s not untrue, but it’s not quite that simple either.
My dad’s advice has always been to make hockey my number-one priority—at least until I make it to the pros. So, going into my senior year of college, I have a plan. I’ll put in the effort required to pass my classes, play hockey like my life depends on it, and avoid relationships. All I have to do is stay focused on the end game, and I’ll walk away with a degree and into a career in the NHL.
It should be easy.
But when a woman literally floats into my dock, just before summer ends and my senior year begins, I can’t resist one last hookup. What harm could a one-night stand do? It’s not like we even exchanged numbers.
Everything is fine until I run into her on campus.
It’s a big school. I should be able to avoid her.
Except she happens to be in my class.
And she’s not a student.
She’s my professor.

Blog Tour – Hey, Mister Marshall by Saffron A. Kent

Release Date: June 14

At eighteen, Poe Blyton’s life is in shambles and the reason is Alaric Marshall.

After her mom’s death, he appeared out of nowhere and became Poe’s controlling guardian. When she protested his tyranny, he had the audacity to send her away to an all-girls reform school. A school full of iron clad rules and regulations.
But at least she’s graduating soon.
Until Alaric himself arrives at the school as the new principal and takes that away from her as well.
That devil.
He’s really asking for it, isn’t he?
And Poe is going to give it to him.
It doesn’t matter that her sworn enemy has the prettiest dark eyes she’s ever seen. Or that he looks really, really good in his boring tweed jackets. So much so that she wants to rip them off his body and see what’s underneath.
Because scorching hot or not, her new principal or not, Poe is going to ruin Alaric’s life.

NOTE: This is a complete STANDALONE set in the world of St. Mary’s Rebels.

Cover Reveal – Secrets and Seductions by SK Reign

 

Releasing: August 1, 2022

Cover Design: Daqri at Covers by Combs

As an omega, I was born with one purpose: to be bred by a pack.

The issue? My first heat hit early. Confused and afraid, I took a big risk to relieve the pain, but it broke all the rules and cost me a piece of myself.

Nobody wants a used omega, but if I don’t mate a pack, none of my sisters will be able to either.
So when a wealthy pack of strangers puts in an offer for me, my family is quick to send me packing, all the way to the land of the midnight sun. Alaska.

Archer, Miles, Noah, and Ben are everything that should make my heart flutter. They’re kind, attentive, and they worship me like a goddess.

My body is built for them, to crave their knots and give them offspring. They say they want to give me everything… but what if I have nothing left to give?

Get ready to meet the Steele sisters in the Bonds of Steele omegaverse series world. Each book is a standalone and can be read in any order. Secrets & Seduction features sweet, protective men, a shy, reluctant female lead, and smoldering-hot knotty times. Please read the author’s note for possible triggers.

THE LOST ELEMENTAL

Amazon: https://geni.us/LostElmntlAmzn

It was supposed to be simple. Graduate, get a job to keep my mom from drowning in mountains of medical debt, and maybe score a scholarship to a decent college.

All of that changed in a single breath. Because it turns out I’m not human. And I just knocked out the power on an entire city block.

In a split second, all of my carefully-laid plans go up in smoke. There’s no chance for college because I’m being hauled off to Kingwood Academy. They say it’s for my own protection and those around me. But I know one thing for sure…

I’m not welcome here.

The mean girls don’t stop at insults and tripping you in the halls. They’re wielding magic that could cost me my life. And the rest of the school sees me as either a halfling that should be cast out or a powerhouse to be brought down.

Everyone except them.

The charmer. The gentle giant. The psychopath. And maybe even the cruel prince.

The royals of Kingwood Academy have taken me under their wing and I can’t help but notice how my skin hums when they touch me. I shouldn’t be dreaming about a single one of them, let alone all four. But I can’t seem to stop myself.

Only someone doesn’t like the attention the royals are showing me. And when the attacks start, the princes will do anything to protect me. But they don’t know the true evil we face. The kind who will do whatever it takes to seize our power, even if that means stealing the very last breath from our lungs…

**Book one in a continuing three-book series. A reverse harem, why choose paranormal romance.**

New Release – Hey, Mister Marshall by Saffron A. Kent

Release Date: June 14

At eighteen, Poe Blyton’s life is in shambles and the reason is Alaric Marshall.

After her mom’s death, he appeared out of nowhere and became Poe’s controlling guardian. When she protested his tyranny, he had the audacity to send her away to an all-girls reform school. A school full of iron clad rules and regulations.
But at least she’s graduating soon.
Until Alaric himself arrives at the school as the new principal and takes that away from her as well.
That devil.
He’s really asking for it, isn’t he?
And Poe is going to give it to him.
It doesn’t matter that her sworn enemy has the prettiest dark eyes she’s ever seen. Or that he looks really, really good in his boring tweed jackets. So much so that she wants to rip them off his body and see what’s underneath.
Because scorching hot or not, her new principal or not, Poe is going to ruin Alaric’s life.

NOTE: This is a complete STANDALONE set in the world of St. Mary’s Rebels.

Influenced, an all-new addictive new adult romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Kelsey Clayton, is available now!

From USA Today bestselling author Kelsey Clayton comes an addictive, laugh out loud romcom that will have you falling in love with more than just the main characters.

Welcome to the Swype House,
where the secrets are bigger than the…

The rules are simple:
Fake it for the cameras.
Do it for the views.
Don’t kill each other.

It felt like an easy yes when I was invited to change my bio from, “Kaia Blakely, college student,” to “Kaia Blakely, newest influencer at the Swype House.”

Then I met Declan Royce. His profile highlights his looks and his humor, but it ought to read, “Owner of an ego so large, it was given its own zip code.”

Suddenly, not killing each other feels like an impossible task.

So yes, it was death threats we were whispering in the background of that viral video, not sweet nothings. So no, there’s zero reason to keep the #Kailan hashtag trending.

Except that it’s our job. So it looks like we’re adding another rule to the list:

Excerpt

“You’re going to love this place,” Lux tells me. “And just a heads up, they don’t card. So order whatever you want.”
“Good to know.”
I look over the menu, listening to Maisee tell me which cocktails are her favorite and which one she avoids, like the margaritas. Apparently, when you’ve had seven of them, you tend to lose the ability to make good choices. I decide on some rum drink that looks like it has more juice than alcohol, and Lux says she’s going to have the same.
Except, Declan seems to have other plans.
He smiles up at the waitress in a way that makes her blush as he orders.
“I’ll take a rum and coke, babe,” he tells her. “And a Shirley Temple for the kid over there. She’s underage.”
Lux’s jaw drops as I exhale in disbelief. He looks smug as he rests his arm on the back of Oakley’s chair. I don’t know what the fuck his problem is, but if he could remove the stick from his ass, that would be great.
Beau pinches his nose and shakes his head while Lux orders her Rum Breeze.
“I’ll actually take the same,” Havoc says.
While everyone looks at him like he’s lost his mind, Mayhem snorts. “Do you want a flower for your hair, too, princess?”
“I might,” he claps back. “Depends on the color. Don’t try giving me that cheap dandelion shit either. Those fuckers are weeds. I want a real hibiscus.”
The waitress giggles as she walks away to get our drinks. Once she’s gone, everyone’s attention is on Declan.
“You’re such a dick, Dex,” Lux tells him.
Nate hums. “We don’t call him Dicklan for nothing.”
Even Beau gives Declan a look. “Not cool, man. I don’t know what’s gotten into you, but just leave Kaia alone. She hasn’t done anything to you.”
He scoffs and rolls his eyes but doesn’t argue further. “Whatever. I’m going to the bathroom.”
The moment he saunters off, Maisee smiles at Oakley. “I love you, but I don’t know how you deal with him.”
My brows furrow. With the way things have gone the last twenty-four hours, I never thought for a second that those two were dating. Especially after he just openly flirted with the waitress.
Oakley glances back at where Declan just disappeared and sighs. “I don’t know what’s gotten into him lately. I’m sorry, Kaia.”
“Don’t be,” I tell her. “You did nothing wrong.”
The table goes quiet for a moment, before Nate and Lux get into a debate on whether or not veganism is an extreme like the women use their placenta as a skincare treatment after birth. Some of us get involved in the conversation, while others, like me, just listen and laugh.
“All I’m saying is there are a lot crazier people out there than those who just don’t want to jerk off a cow for a drink,” Nate argues.
Lux has to fight to keep from laughing. “That’s not at all how that works.”
He looks her up and down. “Oh yeah? Then please, explain to me how you milk a cow, Miss Beverly Hills.”
Her eyes narrow on him but then she’s given the perfect out when the waitress comes back with our drinks. Everyone gets their beer, wine, and cocktails, while I get stuck with a Shirley Temple.
Thank you, Dicklan.
At least she put a few extra cherries in it.
She takes our food orders, with Oakley ordering Declan’s meal for him since he still isn’t back yet, and then she leaves to go put them in.
“Well, cheers,” I say sarcastically, holding up my toddler drink.
Everyone chuckles until Havoc reaches across the table and switches out his Rum Breeze with my soda. That makes us all go silent, staring at him like he’s grown a second head.
“What?” he questions.
Lux smiles. “Aw. The tin man does have a heart.”
“That’s not all I have,” he teases. “Come sit on my lap, Luxie. I’ll show you.”
The grin drops right off her face. “And now you ruined it.”
Laughter bubbles out of us all while I grab my new drink. “Thanks, Havoc. Seriously.”
“It’s no problem.”
“What’s no problem?” Declan asks as he sits back down.
No one says a fucking word. We all stay perfectly still as he looks around, but when his eyes land on my drink, his brows furrow. He checks out what everyone else has until his eyes land on the Shirley Temple sitting in front of Havoc, and he glares at it.
“So,” Nate says loudly to change the subject, “did anyone else see Jessica’s new boob job? Jesus be a plastic surgeon who can fix that shit, because her nipples are crooked.”
Maisee sputters on her drink. “How did you see her nipples?”
“Because they’re poking through her bikini top in the photo! Those things could poke eyes out if they weren’t less straight than me.”
I look over at Beau to see him laughing while pressing on his temple. “The dinner conversations you guys insist on having. I swear.”

Review – Hey, Mister Marshall by Saffron A. Kent

55237230. sy475

Hey, Mister Marshall; St. Mary’s Rebels #4
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 14, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Age Gap/Guardian-Ward/Forbidden Romance

Author: Saffron A. Kent

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Hey, Mister Marshall was the slowest burn out of the St. Mary’s books in the series and it also took several different turns that I wasn’t expecting, which is always a good thing as a reader. Keeps me turning pages so I can find out more.

I think for series fans, readers will adore this book, it’s the culmination of St. Mary’s, plus Saffron drops a few hints of what’s to come in a future series. However, there were times that both characters, and I’ll mainly say Poe, but then I’ll also put onus on Alaric because he is older and WTF, where her juvenile and childlike behavior was just too much. I didn’t see the appeal, but maybe that was the attraction and everyone has their thing…sooooooo.

This is an age gap, that is no secret. Mr. Marshall is Poe’s guardian and he’s approximately seventeen years older than her. He hasn’t been her guardian for long before he sends her to St. Mary’s and their relationship is pretty non-existent up until he arrives to take over as the Principal, which makes Poe angry for several reasons. I won’t list them all out, but the moment he sends her away he also leaves the country and he’s gone for three years. It makes it hard to get to know your guardian when he isn’t around.

They both have emotionally stunted backgrounds, but as they now have proximity and time to uncover this attraction what once was a simmering dislike and annoyance of being shackled to each other turns into something more. While uncovering years of misinformation and anger that’s where the emotional depth and passion really lies in the story. It’s also in the small moments of reconnecting with past characters and in the crumbs of the future.

This is a big book, but the small moments make up that add tension and build that slow burn make it all worthwhile. A 4.5 star read overall.

Synopsis:
At eighteen, Poe Blyton’s life is in shambles and the reason is Alaric Marshall.

After her mom’s death, he appeared out of nowhere and became Poe’s controlling guardian. When she protested his tyranny, he had the audacity to send her away to an all-girls reform school. A school full of iron clad rules and regulations.

But at least she’s graduating soon.

Until Alaric himself arrives at the school as the new principal and takes that away from her as well.

That devil.

He’s really asking for it, isn’t he?

And Poe is going to give it to him.

It doesn’t matter that her sworn enemy has the prettiest dark eyes she’s ever seen. Or that he looks really, really good in his boring tweed jackets. So much so that she wants to rip them off his body and see what’s underneath.

Because scorching hot or not, her new principal or not, Poe is going to ruin Alaric’s life.

Review – Controlled Chaos by Nikki Ash

Book cover for Controlled Chaos: a Single Mom, Rock Star Romance (Love & Lyrics Book 1) by Nikki Ash

Controlled Chaos; Love and Lyrics #1
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 23, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Best Friends/Single Mom/Rock Star Romance

Author: Nikki Ash

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This is an emotionally charged best friends to lovers story. It’s also not your typical rock star romance, with drugs, sex and well…rock and roll. Camden Blackwood comes from a musical powerhouse family, so I love the respect behind the story when it comes to not diving into cliches. Instead this first book dives into the beginnings of four best friends who form Raging Chaos, their rock band that takes off right after high school, and the relationship between Camden and his best friend Layla.

This was a fantastic book to begin Raging Chaos. There were pathways into each band member; Braxton, Gage, and Declan and the potential for where their stories could lead. I loved their brothership with each other and their loyalty never wavered. It was ‘chef’s kiss’ perfect!

Layla moved in next door to Camden sophomore year of high school and he was basically in love with her from that very moment, however the chance to say something to her was never there. She either had a boyfriend or was healing from a breakup. After eight years he finally has the opportunity to tell her how he feels and he refuses to let that moment pass him by again. Camden is eternally patient and kind, super sweet and caring. He’s Easton’s son, so I should have expected nothing less.

Layla has a sweet little boy, Felix, who is just adorable. While he is the result of a marriage Layla second guesses all the time, she never second guesses having her son. I love how Nikki writes these moments, because we all have them; the what if I hadn’t done this…but then I wouldn’t have that…kind of moments. Doubt and guilt are funny things, but when Layla reconnects with Camden he helps ease those doubts, just like when their friendship was at its peak, and watching their relationship reblossom, it’s another great reminder that things happen for a reason.

Synopsis:
🎶 BLURB 🎶

Camden

I’ve been in love with my best friend since high school.

My biggest regret? Walking away without telling her.

I planned to. But then catastrophe struck, making us part ways without a word.

She left for Boston with her fiancé, while I left for L.A. with my band–Raging Chaos.

For the next five years, I lived and breathed music, trying to forget the beautiful girl who shattered my heart without even knowing it.

Until I see her again…

I walked away once, and I’ve learned my lesson.

Layla is my forever, not another item in my pile of regrets.

And she’s about to find that out.

Layla

The moment I saw Camden on stage, something inside me came to life.

His tragic song of unrequited love was a confession that had me questioning everything.

Five years might’ve changed who we are—he’s a rock star and I’m a single mom—but my feelings for him are as strong as ever.

His lyrics make falling in love seem easy. For him—maybe it is.

Only I’ve learned the hard way that real life isn’t as simple as writing a love song.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Like real life, the characters are far from perfect, make morally gray decisions, and deal with subjects that may be sensitive for some readers. If you are looking for a safe romance, this series is not for you. Trigger warnings (which contain spoilers) can be found on my website.

Controlled Chaos: a single mom, rock star romance that’s releasing June 23rd!

King of the junkyard. God of the gridiron. Cypress Springs’ beloved bad boy. 

With just a wink and a smile, he has most girls at his beck and call. Good thing I’m immune to his (debatable) charms.

Open the gate…if you dare.

The first thing I’m warned about when I arrive at the girls’ home is to stay away from the abandoned graveyard. Local urban legend claims it’s host to a gate to Hell.

Then I was dared…

The legend is as real as the monsters I’ve summoned by activating the gate. Demons guard it, waiting for skeptical idiots like me to do the ritual. Three sinfully hot, dangerously powerful demons.

Valerian.
Matthias.
Alder.

Ruthless.
Deadly.
Terrifying.

The gate’s three wicked protectors won’t let me get away without paying their price.
I’m at their mercy, fighting to survive them and the supernatural world they drag me into.

A long buried secret and hidden ancient magic will change everything.
The match is lit and together we’re all going up in flames.

I crashed into someone’s car. Even worse? It turns out that the person I blindsided is my new housemate, Liam, second-year student and football player. 

It’s hate at first sight…until it isn’t. 

But even if he doesn’t hate me anymore, it doesn’t change the fact that he’s straight.

At least, I thought he was.

One night, one kiss, and everything I thought I knew turns upside down.

They say actions speak louder than words.

And his actions tell me that he wants me.

Cover Reveal - 2022, New Releases

Series Cover Reveal – Dark Trilogy by Tracy Lorraine

Release Date: June 30

For years I’ve watched her.

Wanted her.

Craved her.

But I never, ever touched her…

Until that night.

When I caved and took what wasn’t mine to take.

The innocent girl I watched from the shadows grew into a tempting goddess who deserved better than my darkness.

One look. One touch. One mistake.

She didn’t just see me… she saw through me.

Revealing my identity was a price I wasn’t willing to pay.

But I was wrong.

She bought me with her touch.

I walked away once, and if I know what’s good for me, I’ll do it again.

But my best intentions are about to be obliterated…

When I find her in the one place she shouldn’t be.

Covering for her means risking the wrath of her family.

The longer I’m forced to keep this secret, the less I care about what it could cost me.

And you know what they say about bad behaviour?

The same thing as good deeds…

They shouldn’t go unpunished.

The rules are simple:
Fake it for the cameras.
Do it for the views.
Don’t kill each other.

It felt like an easy yes when I was invited to change my bio from, “Kaia Blakely, college student,” to “Kaia Blakely, newest influencer at the Swype House.”

Then I met Declan Royce. His profile highlights his looks and his humor, but it ought to read, “Owner of an ego so large, it was given its own zip code.”

Suddenly, not killing each other feels like an impossible task.

So yes, it was death threats we were whispering in the background of that viral video, not sweet nothings. So no, there’s zero reason to keep the #Kailan hashtag trending.

Except that it’s our job. So it looks like we’re adding another rule to the list:

Don’t let anyone find out the truth.

Ridge McCallister

King of the junkyard. God of the gridiron. Cypress Springs’ beloved bad boy. 

With just a wink and a smile, he has most girls at his beck and call. Good thing I’m immune to his (debatable) charms.

Don’t get me wrong, he is beautiful. With the body of a Greek god and the face of a fallen angel, who could resist? 

Too bad he’s so… Ridge. Every time he opens his mouth, I want to punch him. Or kiss him. 

No, I don’t want that. Not at all. Not even a little bit.

Yet here I am in a no-strings-attached summer fling with the guy I love to hate, and my traitorous heart is calling the shots. 

The problem is he’s a wreck, and I’m ruined. And as anyone can tell you, when wrecked meets ruined things tend to get… messy.

New Release – Hell Gate by Veronica Eden

Release Date: June 9

From USA Today and International bestselling author, Veronica Eden, comes an all-new standalone reverse harem paranormal romance with a headstrong heroine and twisted demons who left their morals in the last century.
 

Open the gate…if you dare.

The first thing I’m warned about when I arrive at the girls’ home is to stay away from the abandoned graveyard. Local urban legend claims it’s host to a gate to Hell.

Then I was dared…

The legend is as real as the monsters I’ve summoned by activating the gate. Demons guard it, waiting for skeptical idiots like me to do the ritual. Three sinfully hot, dangerously powerful demons.

Valerian.
Matthias.
Alder.

Ruthless.
Deadly.
Terrifying.

The gate’s three wicked protectors won’t let me get away without paying their price.
I’m at their mercy, fighting to survive them and the supernatural world they drag me into.
But none of us are prepared for what is awakening within me.

A long buried secret and hidden ancient magic will change everything.
The match is lit and together we’re all going up in flames.

Review – Influenced by Kelsey Clayton

60897187. sy475

Influenced; Influenced #1
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 10, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Enemies-to-Lovers/Fake Dating Romance

Author: Kelsey Clayton

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Influenced is a whopper of a book and there was a lot to cover and at the center of the story it revolves around…influencers. Yes, the very thing that drives our society on what’s hot, what’s not and what will get you cancelled faster than the latest tanking TV drama.

I loved the idea, the plot, and ALL the characters!!!!

Influenced is set in an entirely new world, with new characters and a whole new plot development. Set in LA, the perfect backdrop to the rich and famous and living in the public eye, the book’s main characters are Kaia and Declan, but we are also introduced to all of the other members of Swype house. Perhaps adding more girth to this first book in a new series, we get to know the other cast personalities while diving deep into the MC’s romance story.

Kaia is a newer influencer who is invited to live in Swype house, a house inhabited only by other influencers. They each have their own unique niche so they don’t step on toes, but they also collab to boost each other up. It’s a positive environment, or should be. The very first day Kaia arrives Declan makes it very well known he doesn’t like her and does everything to make her feel unwelcome, to the point that he starts losing followers and could end up getting cancelled.

What is the solution? Since Kaia has only gained support and love since moving into Swype house, why not show everyone the stunts Declan has pulled were equivalent to pulling a girl’s pigtails in elementary school, right? Let the fake dating begin.

Declan has a hard time admitting his faults, but underneath all of his swagger and bullheadedness he’s not a bad guy. Kaia and Declan actually are a sweet couple and their chemistry, especially after all the enemy type build up, is explosive, but what happens when the fake dating turns into more?

Neither expected to feel…well, more, but it’s only fake…right?

The premise of this series and the new world that has now been established makes me giddy with anticipation to read each character as they get their own book. It’s going to be great as this series continues to build and each character falls. I can hardly wait.

Synopsis:
Welcome to the Swype House,
where the secrets are bigger than the…

The rules are simple:
Fake it for the cameras.
Do it for the views.
Don’t kill each other.

Review – When Wrecked Meets Ruined by Emery Rose

54290780. sy475

When Wrecked Meets Ruined; Lost Stars #4
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 9, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Enemies-to-Lovers/Small Town/New Adult/Contemporary Romance

Author: Emery Rose

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Wrecked, I’m wrecked. Emery Rose has totally destroyed me. Reading this book was like riding a rollercoaster to the highest point with so much joy and then dropping off, straight down into a dark pit. Gah!!!! The emotional swirling in my soul to get to the end…Wow…Rose knows how to write the angst.

Ridge and Evie are oil and water, but also so alike, it makes it almost impossible to be together when they know every dark secret and crack in their armour. Prideful to the extreme they both don’t give an inch, but their circling and eventual pull to one another just can’t be ignored, but when tragedy strikes their attraction just isn’t enough to keep them together.

They burn when they are together, but they also burn when they are apart. Up and down their lives intertwine with the other McCallister’s, which make their lives even more complicated, but can they coexist in a world where they might not be everything to each other?

This book covers several dark topics and is super angsty in the best way that each McCallister book has been in this Lost Star series. My favorite part as this series has grown is Noah, Brody and Lila’s son. He always offers up the best advice, coming from a child of all things, and if he ever does get his own book I can only imagine what his love interest will think of his sage wisdom.
