Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The puns, the innuendos, the hot pickles…I loved it all!!

A totally cute, funny story about a deli shop owner who’s into bodybuilding and finds himself in a pickle when the sister of his best friend causes his “pickle” to rise in his teeny tiny shorts upon his debut bodybuilding competition.

Camryn, a professional tanner, helps Max out at the last minute when he arrives at his first bodybuilding competition with his botched tan and while Camryn is used to men sometimes rising to the occasion while she has to get up close and personal to their….personal areas, she isn’t used to Max’s sweet nature and obvious embarrassment.

While both of them are professional and move on from the first time “pickle gate” experience, Max can’t seem to control his unruly pickle everytime he sees her and it loves to make a surprise appearance every time he has a tan session with her. While he needs her services during the competitions, it’s hard to contain the attraction he obviously has for her. What’s a man to do?

Camryn finds Max sweet and would love to pursue something more with him, there is only one thing standing in her way…her very protective brother who just so happens to be Max’s best friend and training partner. They agree to keep their relationship professional, but no matter how much Max tries to wrangle his unruly pickle, it seems to have a mind of his own, like a heat seeking missile it points straight at her whenever he’s around, not that she’s complaining, she enjoys the validation. The only downside is that staying professional is getting harder and harder (pun totally intended).
Can they make her brother understand without messing up Max’s budding career?

Max is super endearing with his over eager pickle and nowhere near the alpha a-hole he could be with all of his rippling muscles. Camryn is also endearing with all of her help and understanding about his pickle problems.

Hot pickle is funny because Max is so likeable, shy and just darn cute. Even with his pickle being he brunt of the jokes, their romance (which has lots of underlying steam) is a slow burn but you don’t notice because this book is just a ton of fun.

While Hot Pickle is interconnected to JJ’s other pickle books and even mentions her MMA characters, this is a complete standalone and you do not have to have read any of the other books to completely enjoy this one.

Synopsis:

I’m rock hard.
No, not like that.
When that happens, you won’t need me to tell you.

I’m a competitive bodybuilder, ready for my very first contest. And winning requires more than killer workouts and stage presence.

It’s all about the tan.

My training partner Franklin uses the best in the business — Camryn Schultz. She understands the career killer of a badly placed white spot.

She’s also his sister.

So when the craptastic tan I’m given for my first competition requires an emergency patch, Franklin knows exactly who to call.

The thing is, when Camryn’s hands hit my skin, more than a few muscles spring to life.

I’m about to head on stage in the tiniest Speedo imaginable and parts of me no longer fit.

What I need to do for my friendship and my future on the circuit is to walk away.

But when my best friend’s sister has her hands on my hard body, there’s no way this Pickle is going to get anything but hot.
__
Hot Pickle is a 300-page standalone romantic comedy about workout junkies, bodybuilding gods, and the couple who sprays together, stays together.

I love you too much to hate you…

Angelica Treviño was the most beautiful girl I’d ever seen.

I wanted to make her smile, but I had no idea when she did, she’d steal my heart.

Sunset eyes, waves of golden-brown hair, cute little butt…

I’m ready to meet the family and put a ring on it.

Instead, I’m on the wrong end of a gun, her older brother threatening to kill me.

It all started with a kiss…

Deacon Dring is a cocky rich boy with ocean-blue eyes, sexy brown hair, and a chiseled body.

Soft lips that melt my knees, that melt everything.

As a child, my family said he was bad.

They made me promise never to see him again.

Many times.

Now we’re adults, and the price of lying is more than I’m willing to pay.

They say we can’t be together. I say try and stop us.

EXCERPT

Nicco!” Arianne clambered off the bed and rushed to my side.
“Wait.” I held up my other hand to stop her. A dark angry storm was raging through me. I wanted to hit something, to hurt and bleed.
I needed it.
Dark rivulets of blood seeped over my hand, but I barely felt it. I was too wired. Too hungry for the kill.
“Let me take a look at it.” Arianne stepped forward and I jerked back, like a caged animal being riled.
“Nicco, it’s me. It’s only me.” She had me cornered with no way out. My body trembled violently as I desperately tried to hold on to my frayed rope of control.
“Nicco…” Arianne brushed the hair from my face. My head hung low, my shoulders hunched and tight. I wanted to kill him. I wanted to hunt him down and kill him with my bare hands.
“Come back to me.” She gently lifted my busted hand and inspected the damage. “It needs cleaning. Let me see what there is.” Arianne left me and went into the bathroom. When she came back, she had a small first aid kit. “I found it in the cabinet. Sit.” Her gaze went to the bed, but I remained rigid.
“I need to stand.”
“Okay. Hold still.” She worked in silence, cleaning me up and bandaging my hand. My pulse began to slow, the tightness in my chest easing.
It was her.
Her touch, her calmness.
“I’m sorry,” I choked out.
Arianne took my face in her hands and looked right at me. God, I wanted to drown in the dark pools of honey. “Talk to me.”
“I want to kill him… I should have killed him.”
“So why didn’t you?”
It was the last thing I expected her to say, but I knew this wasn’t about her, it was about me.
“It’s not that simple,” I released a heavy sigh. “If I’d have killed him… it would start something we might not be able to finish. I can’t do that to the Family, to you.”
She nodded, dropping one of her hands to mine and lacing them together. “I hate Scott for what he did to me. I hate him so much that sometimes I wish you had done it.” Arianne took a shuddering breath. “But I want a life with you. I want a future. I can’t have that if you’re behind bars… or worse.”
“If he hurts you again, I can’t promise I won’t do it.”
Something flashed in her eyes, but before I could decipher it, Arianne kissed me. “I don’t want to talk any more, Nicco. I want you to love me. I want you to make me forget about the monsters.”

Review – Needing You Close by Kennedy Fox

49631156. sy475

Holding You Close; Ex-Con Duet Series #2 
(Gemma and Tyler duet #2)

by: Kennedy Fox

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Needing You Close is the second part of a duet, and picks up right where Keeping You Away ended and if you want to get the best experience out of the story you will want to read the first part of he duet first.

Now that that is out of the way….Needing You Close is the continuation of Gemma and Tyler’s story and full of everything you would could possibly hope for. A sweet, slow-burn love story that both of them deserve after waiting for so many years. Yes, there is some angst in still arriving to that point, but considering so much of their story was already filled with it in the first half of their story, I love that this half they ignored the world and lived in a rose colored bubble. A lot of the story was focused on the two of them just falling in love all over again. Don’t underestimate any author when a couple is living in a bubble, at some time it is going to pop, but oh….that bubble was so sweet while it lasted. (I know Brooke and Lyra were manically laughing when they popped that bubble though as all good authors do).

For fans of the other series, where Tyler first made his appearance, you will love catching up with former characters, but it is not necessary to have read them to still enjoy these brief references. You will also get a brief insight into the future characters and what’s on the horizon with the next duets. I’m excited to see where this entire series arc goes.

Back to Tyler and Gemma. They build on their friendship in this second half of the duet, while also looking for more as a potential future, but it is hard while Gemma tries to escape her present and Tyler is still running from his past.

Their timing just never seems right when Robert’s demands become overbearing and Gemma finally wants to call it off, but jumping right into something new with Tyler shouldn’t be right, unless Gemma never really fell out of love with him after all. Can they escape the monster in a rich suit and finally be together or are they both too late? Who will win in the end and what ever happened to Victoria? Don’t worry…all of your questions will be answered and you will love this story.

Synopsis:

I never expected to see my first love again after he left me twelve years ago. Though I’ve moved on, working with Tyler is no easy task—especially when he focuses his bedroom eyes on me. Flirting with the past is like playing with fire, and considering I’m engaged, I’m bound to get burned.

When the man I promised to marry reveals he’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing, I run to the safety of Tyler’s strong arms. As we grow closer, so do our feelings. Threats and ultimatums are made, and the revelation of the truth is enough to bring me to my knees. I’ll do whatever it takes to protect my family, even if it means shredding my heart.

Too dangerous, too unpredictable, too risky to handle alone—we need each other now more than ever.

After our world nearly collapses, there’s nothing left to do but take it back. Tyler and I team up to destroy the people who are determined to ruin our second chance at a happily ever after. Though our love is undeniable, I just hope it’s enough. We’ll fight until the end to be together—regardless of who tries to get in our way.

NEEDING YOU CLOSE is a slow-burn, angsty romance wrapped up in an intense love story. It’s book 2 in the Tyler & Gemma duet and must be read in order.

—New York Times bestselling author Katy Evans

Want You to Want Me, a sexy friends-to-lovers contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James is available now!

wytwm cover

Hockey player Gabriella “Gabi” Welk spent her life in pursuit of championships, but she has little to show for it besides dusty trophies and second-place medals. Now her career consists of several part-time jobs to make ends meet. When Gabi gets a chance at her dream job, she swallows her pride and asks her nemesis—smart, sexy and savvy Nolan Lund—for help.

Since being named future CEO of Lund Industries, Nolan has tried hard to overcome his reputation as a fun-loving playboy and ladies’ man. For the first time ever, he’s more focused on the company than his personal life. He spends his free time at the ice rink his brother owns, cheering on his niece at her hockey games…and watching Gabriella Welk, the superstar athlete and assistant coach who gets under his skin in a way he can’t ignore. He’s shocked when Gabi agrees to trade a favor for a favor.

They have little in common besides their mutual mistrust, but between family crises and sibling rivalries, Nolan and Gabi realize they want to be more than just friends—much more.

Excerpt

“What?”
“The first random text you sent me. Christ. That might’ve been the corniest joke I’d ever heard, but I laughed my ass off for like five minutes. I’d had a shit day, I was still at work, feeling alone and pissy, and then your text pinged. For a brief shining moment, I knew someone in the world was thinking about me.”
“For real?” she whispered.
“Absolutely for real.” I let my lips brush the top of her ear. “I kept it casual and friendly. Biding my time until . . .”
“Until what?”
“Until I could make it clear to you that I intended to take friendly to a whole new level with us.” Feathering my mouth between her cheekbone and her ear, I murmured, “So tell me, Gabriella, when was I supposed to do that this week? When you came to me in a panic on Monday? When I texted you and asked if you had time for lunch on Tuesday and you turned me down? Or when I stopped by the rink last night and you sent me packing? Or tonight when I stormed into the men’s locker room because I worried you were really hurt?”
“You . . .” A shiver rolled through her. “Stop whispering in my ear, goddammit, it’s making it hard to think.”
She rolled her shoulder—to get closer or to get away from me? I froze. Waiting. When she stayed put, I had the answer I needed.
And looky there, she’d also given me better access to that tempting neck. “Jesus, you smell good.”
“It’s just lotion.”
“It’s just you,” I half growled. “Have I mentioned that you were fucking magnificent on the ice tonight?”
“No . . . Oh god, that feels . . .” She moaned as I planted soft kisses down the front of her throat.
“Mmm. I want to do this all night. But I won’t, because you have a big day tomorrow. And I won’t add to your stress of that by keeping on about this, but we both know it’s been building toward this.”I nuzzled the skin below her ear. “Am I wrong?”
“No.”

I’m done with love.

That’s why I’m back in the city I ran away from in the first place.

I swear the decision to stay has nothing to do with my new roommate and everything with what I left behind.

So what if I’m attracted to her?

She’s easy on the eyes. Smart. Driven.

And we’re on the same page when it comes to relationships: We don’t do them.

But our lives have quickly fallen in sync.

Too easily. Too seamlessly.

I’m laying down roots and making plans for a future I can’t see without her in it.

Sometimes I think I can’t live with her . . .

Trust Me - teaser 6 AN

Excerpt

Holt’s coveralls were filthy. He had a smudge of grease on his cheek. His hair was a wreck, strands of it haphazard in opposing directions.
Relief rushed through me even as I stood a little straighter.
“You should lock the door.” He kicked it shut and shucked off his leather jacket, tossing it on the back of the sofa.
My pulse thrummed a rapid beat with every step he took toward the kitchen. His eyes were locked on mine, but I couldn’t read anything but the heat in them. Fury or desire, I didn’t know. He looked exhausted, that much I could tell.
He swiped the glass from my hand and drained half, making a disgusted face when he handed it back to me. “How do you drink that stuff?” He grimaced and went to the fridge, grabbing a beer and twisting the top off.
“Like this.” I made a show of putting the glass to my lips, slowly tipping it back until the dark liquid flowed into my mouth. “Delicious,” I said once I’d swallowed.
His throat bobbed as he watched me. His eyes slid down my body when I lowered the glass to the counter.
“Nice dress.” His gaze lingered at the V where just a hint of cleavage peeked out.
I’d worn the red A-line dress for him. To get his attention. Pathetic.
“That what people who work at a magazine wear?” He pointed his beer toward me, heat burning a trail where his eyes wandered down my body all the way to my heels.
“Only the easy ones.”
“I already explained that,” he said with a hint of impatience.
“I know what easy means.” He had explained and I loved his nickname, but I was still pissy after he hadn’t come home last night. “Apparently you’re well acquainted with the definition.”
He wiped the back of his mouth with his hand. “What the hell is that supposed to mean?”
I lifted one shoulder to my ear. “Nothing.”
He set his bottle down and closed the distance between us, though he was careful not to touch his clothes to my dress.
“You’d better clarify, Easy. This grease monkey isn’t following.”
I barely heard what he said, blindsided when the scent of motor oil wafted into my nostrils. I gripped the rounded edge of the counter and pressed my lower back into it to get away. It was useless. I was dizzy with the combination of sweat, garage, and Holt.
“I said nothing.” I lifted my chin, as I pretended not to be affected. There was no way I was asking if he’d been with someone the night before. “And stay out of my room.”
“That’s where the only working bathroom is. You knew that when we moved in.”
“Sounds like you’ve got a problem then.” I shrugged, and he scowled.
“No problem.” His voice held dark promise and unspoken desire.
Every inch of me ached for him to touch me, his breath ghosting across my face not anywhere near enough. I clenched my thighs together. That did nothing to stop the throb of heat in my core.
“You stink.” I wrinkled my nose and prayed he believed the lie.
“Then why’d you just inch closer, Easy?”
“I didn’t,” I said indignantly. “Can you back up, please? I have plans.”
He flattened his palms on the stone surface on either side of me. “We have plans.”
I held my breath to keep from taking any more of that intoxicating scent in, but I had to let it go so I could speak. “We do not.”
Holt winked at me, a signature move of the Dixon men. I should have been immune, but I melted. “Sure we do. It’s in our roommate agreement. Friday nights, we hang out.”
I shoved at his shoulders. “What are you talking about?” My voice was shaky, far too affected for my liking. “We don’t have a roommate agreement.”
“Sure, we do,” he said easily. “Did we or did we not agree to be roommates?”
I stared at him a moment. This was a trick question. It was too easy not to be. “Um . . . yes?”
He tapped the tip of my nose and grinned. “Exactly. And since we agreed to be roommates, we agreed to Friday nights. I’m picking this week. Pizza. Beer. And The Walking Dead.”
“Did you get hit on the head at work today?”
“Not that I remember,” he said cheekily.
I quirked my mouth to one side. “Inhale toxic fumes?”
“Probably.” He flashed his perfect white teeth at me.
My gaze dropped to his mouth, and I had to fight desperately to keep from doing something really stupid. Like kiss him the way my lips burned to.
“I have plans,” I said weakly.
“I know. We just went over them. Pizza. Beer—”
I held up my hand. “I got it. I got it.”
“Good.” He dipped his head closer to mine, our eyes locked. His were full of the kind of mischief I definitely wanted a part of.
He rapped his knuckles on the counter twice, and I jumped, narrowly avoiding head butting him. That grin turned knowing before he backed out of my space.
“Wait to change until I’m out of the shower. I need my privacy,” he said over his shoulder as he sauntered toward the bedroom.
I sagged against the counter when he disappeared, blindly feeling around for my wine glass. Once in hand, I downed the rest in one long swallow. Sweet Jesus that man put me in a tailspin.
He couldn’t get that close again. I’d never survive however long we lived together.
I marched down the hall with determined steps.
“We need to establish . . .” I lost my train of thought at the sight of him bare-chested, coveralls hanging off his hips. We had to get that bathroom fixed. Stat.
“Establish?” He twirled his hand in front of him in a finish that thought gesture.
I cleared my throat and dragged my eyes away from those cut abs up to his face. So that wasn’t really a hardship. “Boundaries. We need to establish boundaries.”
He shook his index finger at me. “Yes. I told you I needed some privacy, yet you tear in here like the house is on fire.”
“You can’t get in my personal space again.”
Holt shoved his coveralls off his hips, leaving him only in charcoal gray boxer briefs. “Easy, we live together. You can’t get any more up in each other’s personal space than that.”

Review – Fierce by Tracy Lorraine

53336448. sy475

Fierce; Rosewood High #4 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

by: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Two very different people, two interconnecting stories. One looking for redemption, the other looking for retribution. Fierce is Lorraine’s most emotional Rosewood story yet. Chelsea and Shane will run you through the emotional wringer before the very end, guaranteed.

Forgiveness is a powerful weapon in our emotional arsenal. It has the strength to heal, the power to mend wounds, or it also has the ability to create guilt within our soul for the things we’ve done and feel we can never be forgiven for.

Chelsea Fierce is not only fierce in name, but also in returning to the scene of her crimes. To the very school where she treated so many horribly, drugged fellow students, and let others take the fall for her crimes. She’s not all bad, she did see the error of her ways before someone truly got hurt and sought counseling and wants to make amends for her wicked ways. Honestly, she is more mature than many adults I know at an older age. Everyone should have a second chance to redeem themselves and Chelsea’s story will touch your heart.

Image may contain: 1 person, text that says 'FIERCE ROSEWOODHIGH# TRACY LORRAINE "YOU'RE CHELSEA FUCKING FIERCE, BABY. WALK IN THERE WITH YOUR SHOULDERS BACK AND SHOW THEM THAT YOU WILL NEVER HIDE FROM THEM."'

Shane Dunn hasn’t exactly had an easy road at Rosewood High. While being part of the football team and having a father who was in the NFL, Shane would seem like a popular guy, and he is for the most part, but he didn’t crave the limelight. He’s actually shy and prefers the shadows, which is how he ended up taking the fall for Chelsea’s crimes. Living with the villain rap, when he’s actually a good guy messed with his head. Add in the crush he had on Chelsea and being unable to confront her when she took off, Shane has had eight weeks of pent up frustration just waiting to explode when Chelsea reappears. Shane is ready to collect his pound of flesh from the girl who messed up his life and he isn’t going to let her run away again.

As much as these two seem like an unlikely duo, they also scream a perfect match every time they meet up. You almost wonder how you didn’t see it before because they are so explosive together. They are raw and unforgiving, but also so real with one another they don’t realize how emotional it all is and how deep everything goes because of all bubbling and sizzling emotions brewing between them.

Chelsea allows Shane to take what he wants. She knows the damage she’s done to his life, but she also  wants him on a personal level even though he hates her. Each time though she tells herself it’s the last because the confusion is messing with her head, but she can’t seem to stop herself when he’s around.

Shane is the same. He can’t stop the mean and hateful things that spill from his mouth, but he also can’t stop from seeking her out. She’s like a drug that he can’t stop from taking and he constantly needs another hit.

Even with these two battling it out, there is more to the story than just them alone. Family and friends all play a role making Fierce powerful, moving, and one of Lorraine’s best books to date.

Image may contain: 1 person, text that says 'FIERCE ROSEWOOD HIGH#4 TRACY LORR ORRAINES A1 THEY MIGHT THINK THEY'VE DETHRONED ME. BUT THEY NEED TO REALIZE THAT MY CROWN IS GOING NOWHERE. IT'S CURRENTLY JUST ALITTLE CROOKED.'

Synopsis:

Everyone thinks they know me… but they’re wrong.

Fearless on the outside— a lie.

I’m a fraud, hiding behind a mask of perfection. My reality very different.

The captain. The leader. The Queen Bee.

None of it real— all just an illusion.

Perception is everything and I use it to get what I want, when I want, refusing to let anyone stand in my way.

Until he shows me that he’s not the man I expected. He’s not just the quiet one… the innocent one.

But the one to finally tear away the mask and look beneath the surface. The only one who sees me, gets me, challenges me.

He’s already changed my life in a way I never expected.
My secret could make us or break us, but I know one thing for sure… I’ll protect it fiercely.

That’s the real me. Chelsea Fierce.

The girl behind the mask with everything to lose.

Blog Tour – Hood River Zero by K. Webster

Hood River Zero

Hood River Hoodlums, Book 4
by K Webster
Publication Date: July 30, 2020
Genres: Forbidden Friends to Lovers Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books

From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a forbidden, friends to lovers romance called Hood River Zero!

Life was nearly stolen from me.
In the blink of an eye, everything changed.
I’m no longer the charismatic, hot playboy Hoodlum.

I’m irrevocably altered.
Damaged both inside and out.

I can’t think. I can’t function. I can’t live.
Not with all this darkness and pain dragging me into unknown depths.
Some days, I wish I never woke up.

But then life takes an unusual turn.
A sweet, sad little girl might be mine.
My dream job is gifted to me.
I have a doctor who cares.
Things are looking up.

Until her.

One mouthy, bratty, mean beautiful young thing complicates everything.
She sees the darkness inside that I’m trying desperately to hide from everyone.
Pokes. Prods. Infuriates.
This girl won’t stop until she’s touched every scar, both inside and out.

I’m not sure how I’m supposed to mentally heal and be a better man when I have the most unapologetic, unpopular mean girl shining her light into every dark crevice inside me.

Annoying. A nuisance. Not worth my time.
I’ll shake her off eventually.
She’s nothing to me.
A Hood River zero.

Try telling my heart that…

This is a full-length high school friends-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book four in the Hood River Hoodlum series that all have interlinking storylines. Hood River Zero shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the final book in the four-book series that gives each Hoodlum a story. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF. The Hood River Hoodlums is now a complete series!

Review – The Pool Boy by Nikki Sloane

51583112. sy475

The Pool Boy; Nashville Neighborhood #2 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Nikki Sloane

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A steamy, summer romance! Troy and Erika lit the pages on fire, they were so hot that I needed to kick up the air conditioning just to cool off!

The Pool Boy is not only a smexy, delicious read, it is a story about who is really in your court when the going get tough. It’s also a story that is more than a hot, steamy dip in the pool….with a boy. It’s about believing in your dreams, and not only that, but finding the courage, faith and trust to go after them especially after being crushed by your hopes in the past.

Erika believes in Troy wholeheartedly when he doesn’t believe in himself. Troy was crushed in college when he lost his dream of playing professional baseball. When she happens upon him singing in a bar, (Erika is a manager/agent in the music industry) she knows a good voice when she hears one. Just because he happens to be “dipping in her pool” he doesn’t want to take advantage, but also has lost the confidence to pursue his dreams. Luckily, Erika has all the confidence for him and knows just where to lead.

On the flip side, when it comes to a relationship, Erika, being a recent divorcee, isn’t exactly the most confident on going forth with a relationship with a younger man, especially when her last relationship ended in a crashing disaster. Sure, she loves that Troy is turned on by her, but how long can that last? She’s just that much older than him. Won’t he want someone his own age at some point? Can she really be everything that he needs when he has a lot of living left to do? Filled with doubt does nothing great for her ego, but luckily Troy really shines in bringing forth Erika’s confidence and renewing her glow.

Together these two are a perfect match both in and out of the bedroom, which made this a very enjoyable read and a perfect addition to my overall 2020 must read list!

Synopsis:

Nothing says happy birthday like catching your husband in a compromising position with his boss.

His male boss.

Why, hello, midlife crisis. I’m starting over, but this time I’m doing it right. Or at least I’m doing what I want.

Taking the day off from work to hang out poolside? Yup. Do I leave the swimsuit in my house? Sure.

Does my very hot, twenty-something pool boy happen to catch me naked? Oh, yeah, he does. And he likes what he sees… a lot.

My best friend keeps telling me to have a fling and get back out there. But I’m not so sure she meant for me to do it with her son.

Review – Troublemaker by Kayley Loring

53906637. sy475

Troublemaker
(A standalone, but interconnected with Sleeper and Charmer)

by: Kayley Loring

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Loved, loved, loved it!! Alex and Emilia were another brilliantly crafted couple, but the precocious seven year old Ryder completely stole the show and my heart!

Kayley Loring’s books bring me joy everytime I read one. Her writing never fails to bring a smile to my face. They are funny, fresh, and every child character she writes make me laugh, but Ryder in particular brought out the snort-laughs. He is so full of spunk and he’s smart, but he’s also just a child filled with innocence so he never does things out of deviousness. I could read his antics all day long.

As for Alex, Ryder’s single dad…the actual main hero in the book…he is hilarious as well. The way Kayley writes is absolutely brilliant. To be in the mind of her male characters is both like being inside the mind of a grown child, because let’s face it all men are just big children, and also the other half is filled with more or less dirty thoughts because yes they are men. Kayley has tapped into this mindset so flawlessly it makes it so I hate when her books come to an end.

Alex Vega is a divorcee and hasn’t dated seriously since his divorce, but when his son, Ryder, begins 2nd grade the new teacher, Emilia Stiles is exactly the woman of his dreams. It just also happens she is the same woman who caught his eye at a club before the school year started and he hasn’t stopped thinking about her since that night, so he’s chalking it up as fate. Since Emilia is Ryder’s teacher and she doesn’t want to cross any boundaries or appear to have favorites they keep their relationship platonic, but how long can it last, especially when Ryder is involved?

Emilia is quirky, smart and just the right amount of dirty for Alex. She is smitten with both Vega boys which makes her endearing from the get go, but so do her horrible teacher sweaters and her love of color coding. I’m a sucker for all of that. Her friendship grows with Alex and Ryder, the troublemaker, who might help push things along. Okay…can you tell how adorable this book is…seriously, you will love it. It’s a total feel good book.

Synopsis:

TO: Alex Vega
FROM: Emilia Stiles

SUBJECT: Hello

Dear Mr. Vega,

I felt it necessary to follow up on today’s meeting, since we weren’t able to speak candidly in front of your son.

I was shocked to discover that you are Ryder’s dad. Given that your ex-wife will be out of the country for a while and you are currently his primary caregiver, I’m sure you understand why we need to establish boundaries and etiquette. I think it would be best if we just pretend that we met in person for the first time today.

Your son is a very bright (flirtatious and talkative) student and since his education is a top priority for both of us, I hope I can count on you to respectfully refrain from grinning at me, using that sexy tone of voice, and undressing me with your annoyingly beautiful brown eyes if we should happen to interact with each other again in the future.

Thanks so much,
Miss Stiles

TO: Emilia Stiles
FROM: Alex Vega

SUBJECT: Re: Well, hello again…

Dear Miss Stiles,

Great to hear from you. My son’s education is indeed a top priority. As such, I respectfully agree to refrain from doing all of the aforementioned things.

However, I can’t promise to stop thinking about that kiss at the bar this summer. I’ve been thinking about it for the past month. It’s interesting how humorless and uptight you are about my son’s totally awesome personality, given that I have personally witnessed just how flirtatious and talkative you yourself can be when mildly intoxicated.

You’re so welcome,
Alex

P.S. I volunteered to be a chaperone for your next field trip. See you then.

I will always be here for you. There isn’t a world that exists where I’m not gonna be around for you.

When the Time is Right, a funny, sweet and emotional standalone from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez and M. Mabie is available now!

wttir cover

Fate doesn’t always happen overnight.

Hudson Bradley is the cockiest, most stubborn, hard-headed man I’ve ever known. And for fifteen years, he’s been my brother’s best friend.

But lately, what I’m feeling for him isn’t friendship at all.

Why is my heart racing every time his blue eyes lock on mine?
Why does every word he rumbles in my ear make my body come alive?
And worst of all, why did I bet him that I could find a woman he and his son would both love?

If I hadn’t given up on love altogether, Hudson would have been perfect for me. After all, he was there the day my world fell apart. He’s spent the last six years piecing me back together.

There are a million reasons why we could never work, but after a single kiss, I can’t remember any of them.

Now that the time is right, I have to make him mine—before I lose him forever.

Read Kay’s Review: When the Time is Right

 

 

 

Excerpt

I did everything I could to not make eye contact.
Actually, my MO for the past week had been no contact period, but that was a little hard to do when the guy you’re dodging knows things about you. Specifically, the lock code on your front door.
“You can go home, Hudson. I’m fine.” Out of my periphery, I watched him perch his hands on his hips.
“No,” he argued. “Not until we figure this out.”
So he had noticed my ghosting. I hoped he wasn’t as good at calling my bluff.
“There is no this.”
“What about what you said at the—”
“Yeah, I must have had a cold or something. Whatever it was, I’m over it.”
Lies. Lies. Lies. Hopefully, I’d start believing them.
“Over it?”
“Yep. Hey, how was your date?” My topic-swapping skills were on point. When he stopped, only an arm’s length away, I finally seized what scrap of pride I had and looked up into his blue eyes. “Are you seeing her again?”
He huffed. “Well, that’s kind of up to you.”
“Me?” I dropped the spoon into the sink and put the ice cream down so I could cross my arms over my chest. “What do I have to do with it?”
His lids fell shut, and he tipped his head at the ceiling, stretched his neck from side to side, and then brought his gaze back to mine. “Kate seems to think that, maybe, I have a thing…for you.”
My face flushed hot, and I wondered if maybe I’d fallen down trying to get out of my leather skirt earlier and I was dreaming, passed out on my bedroom floor. The issue with that theory was I could smell him, feel the warmth from his body in front of me, and see his heartbeat thumping in the vein in his neck.
This was real, but I still wasn’t sure I could handle it.
“Well, that’s just, uh, dumb,” I contended weakly. Shaking my head to rattle myself back to sanity, I asked, “W-why did she say that?” I tried to laugh, but it was as fake as my gusto.
“Because, apparently, I talked about you the whole night.”
Okay, I was wrong. I’d thought riding in a car with him and seeing him shirtless and watching him play with Jack and seeing how much he loved my family and having him touch me and avoiding him all week had been torture.
This moment was a whole new level of torment.
“So?” I said childishly.
It didn’t matter how I felt or what I wanted. I couldn’t just leap into his arms and expect everything to turn out the way it was supposed to. That’s not how my life worked.
“So I need to find out if this, whatever’s been building between us, is something.”
Wouldn’t that be nice? Up until that very second, it had all been one-sided. I’d racked my brain all week to understand why I’d felt the crazy things I did about him.
“How you gonna do that?”
“We’re going to kiss,” he stated very matter-of-factly, and then he closed the distance between our bodies.
“We are?” I whispered. My voice had all but left the building.
“Unless you stop me right now.”
I wanted to.
I didn’t want to.
I was scared.
I was excited.
But mostly, I wasn’t stopping him.

New Release – Want You To Want Me by Lorelei James

Want You to Want Me, an all new slow burn enemies to lovers standalone from New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James is available now!

wytwm cover

Hockey player Gabriella “Gabi” Welk spent her life in pursuit of championships, but she has little to show for it besides dusty trophies and second-place medals. Now her career consists of several part-time jobs to make ends meet. When Gabi gets a chance at her dream job, she swallows her pride and asks her nemesis—smart, sexy and savvy Nolan Lund—for help.

Since being named future CEO of Lund Industries, Nolan has tried hard to overcome his reputation as a fun-loving playboy and ladies’ man. For the first time ever, he’s more focused on the company than his personal life. He spends his free time at the ice rink his brother owns, cheering on his niece at her hockey games…and watching Gabriella Welk, the superstar athlete and assistant coach who gets under his skin in a way he can’t ignore. He’s shocked when Gabi agrees to trade a favor for a favor.

They have little in common besides their mutual mistrust, but between family crises and sibling rivalries, Nolan and Gabi realize they want to be more than just friends—much more.

Review – Trust Me by Grahame Claire

54643388. sy475

Trust Me; Free #2 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Grahame Claire

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A roommate to lovers romance that is a story about finding trust and love again when both characters have been broken by past relationships.

There may be trigger scenes in this book, as there are interconnecting characters that all share experiences from the same shelter. Baker was in a toxic relationship prior to moving in with Holt and she questions her actions with him a lot. Holt also left a relationship to move back closer to his family, but he isn’t one to settle long term mainly all stemming from his mother leaving when he was a child.

I did find times that I couldn’t connect with either character and I wasn’t sure if it was because this was my first time entering this world or if it was because there was little to no backstory. Either way I’m sorry to say my mind did question several plot points.

Holt and Baker may not have triggered my super happy must read it now button, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t still a HEA story. It is still a story that gives hope, especially one after overcoming difficult odds.

Synopsis:

The next book in the Free Series, a roommates to lovers romance from USA Today Bestselling Author Grahame Claire.

I’m done with love.

That’s why I’m back in the city I ran away from in the first place.

I swear the decision to stay has nothing to do with my new roommate and everything with what I left behind.

So what if I’m attracted to her?

She’s easy on the eyes. Smart. Driven.

And we’re on the same page when it comes to relationships: We don’t do them.

But our lives have quickly fallen in sync.

Too easily. Too seamlessly.

I’m laying down roots and making plans for a future I can’t see without her in it.

Sometimes I think I can’t live with her . . .

But what if I can’t live without her?

Review – The Enemy by Kelsey Clayton

The Enemy; Haven Grace Prep #4 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Kelsey Clayton

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Sweet and salty is the perfect combination in The Enemy where we return to Haven Grace Prep with Lennon Bradwell and are introduced to Cade Knight.

Lennon may be from one of the richest families and live in a house that resembles an actual castle, but she is far from a spoiled princess. From all of the people we’ve met along the way, Lennon is one of the sweetest, loyal, and truly cares deeply for the few people in her life. She has lived a fairly sheltered life, which makes the circle of people in her world rather small, but those in it she accepts 100%, that makes not liking Cade Knight that much harder when his family moves into her home. Her entire life has just been her and her father so when Nora, Molly, and Cade Knight all move in she is willing to give them a chance because it makes her father happy, but Cade is anything but the ideal new housemate. He decides to make their lives miserable and torn between making her father happy and getting along with Cade Lennon finds herself in new territory.

Cade Knight is angry. He’s never found himself in this position before in his entire life. He thought his parents were happy, but then his mother comes home and tells him that not only are his parents getting a divorce, but also that they are moving into her new boyfriends house. His world is turned upside down and he vows to never get along with his “new family”. It doesn’t help his anger that the potential new stepsister living in the house is beautiful, sweet, and she’s dating one of his least favorite people. Lennon Bradwell becomes public enemy #1 in his book and he’ll do everything to make her life miserable.

Cade and Lennon have a constant back and forth, a real test of wills that not only shows their weaknesses for each other, but also unknowingly builds their relationship from the inside. These two are true fire and kindling and only burn hotter the more they push each other buttons.

In this angsty bully romance should the princess rescue the knight so they can live happily ever after or will the knight push the princess out of her tower so they can burn a new trail to their own happiness? Find out how the sweet and salty get to their HEA in this angsty new book.

Synopsis:

Kensington Bradwell doesn’t get told no often.
Not when he built an empire from the ground up.
Not when he became the most powerful man in North Haven.
And definitely not when he met my mother.
A picture-perfect relationship,
a happy family,
and twenty years of marriage—
all thrown away for a man with no morals.
Tearing him down won’t be easy,
but I won’t stop until his empire is in flames.
For my sister. For my father. For me.
I need to find a way to break him.
Lucky for me, the answer just fell into my lap.
Daddy’s little princess may be innocent in all of this,
but Lennon’s about to get caught in the crossfire of revenge.

Review – Healing Storms by Lynn Burke

54447840. sy475

Healing Storms  
(A standalone within a series)

by: Lynn Burke

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Healing Storms is hot and emotional, it really contains the whole package for a MMF story.

Healing Storms contained a lot more heart and emotion than I was expecting. At the very soul of the story it was about a two broken men who lost a wife and daughter and a sister and niece in the same tragic accident. It is also about a healing woman who is rebuilding her life after years of abuse and trying to find herself now that she is finally free.  Kane, Charley, and Jill all have damage, but together can they move past it and all heal together?

Right from the first chapter Healing Storms will grip you from the get go. Kane and Charley have a history that goes way back, but they have never acted on their feelings and it takes a woman, Jill, who recognizes heartache to bring them together for the first time. She recognizes the same brokenness in herself and is drawn to both men, but she also is torn between wanting them or just being the bridge between what they have both denied themselves for years. How do you know if you are just a temporary need or could be a permanent solution?

Lynn Burke is a new author for me, and again, I was pleasantly surprised by how much emotion was contained within this book along with all the passion she fit in. I will definitely revisit more of her books in the future.

Synopsis:

One stormy night breaks Kane Austin. Moving deeper into the Pennsylvania woods doesn’t heal the heartache of his tragic loss, nor does it offer the peace he longs for. He certainly can’t bear the thought of loving again.

Charley Woodhill blames himself for his sister’s and niece’s deaths. He feels he doesn’t deserve Kane’s forgiveness, and especially not his love, but that doesn’t keep him from watching over his best friend from afar, coveting what he can never have.

Determined to live a quiet life, Jill Walters isn’t looking for a man or complications. But flames of desire bright as a lightning strike can’t be denied, and the consequences of falling for not just one but two men shakes her unstable foundation.

Will Kane let go of the ghosts from his past? Can Charley find the strength to share the man he’s longed for since childhood? Or will Jill choose for them and flee to keep the two men safe?

Review – Kiss My Cupcake by Helena Hunting

49089774. sy475

Kiss My Cupcake 
(A standalone)

by: Helena Hunting

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A deliciously  good read! Helena Hunting combined sweets and spirits into the perfect enemies-to-lovers summer romance.

While Blaire’s new business, Buttercream and Booze, caters to a more upscale clientele with cupcakes, martinis and mixed drinks. Ronan’s pub located right next door, The Knight Cap, sells on tap beer, wings, and offers axe throwing for your nightly entertainment. Even though these two get off on the wrong foot and begin as enemies it doesn’t take long to realize that working together and planning coordinated events actually might help them achieve the same goal.

Helena has covered Kiss My Cupcake in sweet buttercream…okay she really just covered all the bases and made this book extra fun to read. Between crazy family members which will make you chuckle, delicious treats that totally made me crave everything in my kitchen, fantastic chemistry between the two main characters, and not to mention plaid – yes, I even wanted to dress the hubby up in everything plaid while I was reading. Hunting brings all the magic to this fun, very unputadownable read.

Kiss My Cupcake is a total win to add to your collection!

Synopsis:

As two neighborhood shop owners battle for business, they prove opposites attract in this outrageously funny romantic comedy from the USA Today bestselling author of Meet Cute.

Blaire Calloway has planned every Instagram-worthy moment of her cupcake and cocktails shop launch down to the tiniest detail. What she didn’t plan on? Ronan Knight and his old-school sports bar next door opening on the very same day. He may be super swoony, but Blaire hasn’t spent years obsessing over buttercream and bourbon to have him ruin her chance at success.

From axe throwing (his place) to frosting contests (hers), Blaire and Ronan are constantly trying to one-up each other in a battle to win new customers. But with every clash, there’s also an undeniable chemistry. When an even bigger threat to their business comes to town, they’re forced to call a temporary time-out on their own war and work together. And the more time Blaire spends getting to know the real Ronan, the more she wonders if it’s possible to have her cupcake and eat it too.

Excerpt:

“Do you have pole tomorrow?” he asks, checking his side mirror before he pulls onto the road. “No, I need a rest day.” “And it’s Sunday, so you wouldn’t have class, right?” My suspicion rises. “No… but I do have Chapter at six.” “Chapter…” he muses, side-eyeing me with a grin. “Damn sorority.” I smack his arm playfully. “Do you think you could skip it, just this once?” “Probably not without a death threat from Ex,” I say seriously. “But… what are you proposing?” We pull up to a red light, and Brandon bites his lip before turning to me. “The Bahamas.” “The Bahamas?!” “The Exumas, technically.” “The Exumas,” I repeat, sounding like a freaking parrot at this point. “You’re proposing we go to the Exumas tonight,” I clarify. “As in… the place where you swim with pigs.” “I was thinking more like the place where I fuck you on my yacht and drink fruity cocktails out of coconuts with you on the beach,” he says on a smirk, and the light turns green, making him turn back to the road with a shrug. “But if you’d rather swim with pigs…” I laugh, shaking my head at the ridiculousness of it. I’m tempted to say We can’t just go to the fucking Bahamas, Brandon, but I know that’s a lie. He has a yacht. And more money than he knows how to spend. Technically, we can go to the Bahamas. I’m quiet for a long while, and Brandon glances at me from the corner of his eye before pulling into a random restaurant parking lot. It’s a Mexican diner, not even open yet, since it’s only ten in the morning. When he’s parked, he turns to me, grabbing my hands and pulling them into his lap. “Look, we’ve both been busy this summer — you with your exec position in the sorority, and pole… me with this national client we’re in the bidding war for… both of us working hard at Okay, Cool after everything that went down in the spring with Kim… and now, school is back in session, it’s the last semester before you graduate, we’re both hard at work, and I just…” He smooths his dark thumbs over my wrists, his eyes that are usually so intense, soft and vulnerable now. “This might be our last chance to spend some real, quality time together before life gets even crazier than it already is.” My heart melts into a puddle right there on the floorboard of his expensive ass car, and I lean over the console, kissing him long and hard. “Let’s go to the Bahamas,” I whisper between kisses. “You’re right. Everything else can wait.” He sighs, wrapping his arms around me until he’s pulling me into his lap. I squeal and laugh, but then my next breath is stolen by the erection growing in his slacks. “This would be a lot easier on the yacht,” I say, rubbing the seam of my leggings against his hard-on. “Maybe,” he says, sucking on my bottom lip and releasing it with a pop. His lips trail down my neck as my head rolls back. “But these windows are tinted, and you’re sexy when you say I’m right.”

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.

EXCERPT:

Galen’s cell pings, and he cracks up laughing. “Man, he’s pathetic.”

I look into the back seat, grinning. “Darrow is nothing if not predictable.”

“You should meet with him,” Theo says. “Hear what he’s planning.”

“It could be a trap,” Saint suggests.

“Nah.” Galen shakes his head, and waves of dark, silky hair fall into his eyes. He tosses them aside with a flip of his head. “He still thinks I want Lo dead. I can tell him I’m even more bloodthirsty now that I was almost killed in the explosion that was meant for her.”

“Cold.” Saint grins wickedly at his cousin.

“But perfect,” Caz adds.

“Perfect would be his head on a spike,” Saint snarls. “He’s lucky he’s still in one piece after the shit he said to you back there.”

“I was so tempted to slice off his dick,” I admit. “Like, I seriously had to talk myself off that ledge.”

Caz chuckles. “You couldn’t deprive us of that sight. When you chop his cock off, I want a front-row seat.”

I lean back for a knuckle touch. “Deal, dude. Wouldn’t want to deprive you of such quality entertainment.”

Sean Bailey, the older brother of my lifelong best friend, has always been a surly, temperamental pain in my ass. But sometime during the last few weeks, I’ve gone and fallen head over heels for him.

Gruff and charming, charismatic in his own way, I’ve found myself looking past my preconceptions and discovered a whole new side to Detective Dick—a side I could fall in love with.

But life isn’t always easy—it can change course in the blink of an eye. Sometimes for the good and sometimes for the bad. I know this because last night I experienced both sides.

I went to Sean for help in guarding my body; what I didn’t expect was for him to steal my heart.

I will always be here for you. There isn’t a world that exists where I’m not gonna be around for you.

When the Time is Right, an all-new friends to lovers standalone from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez and M. Mabie is available now!

wttir cover

Fate doesn’t always happen overnight.

Hudson Bradley is the cockiest, most stubborn, hard-headed man I’ve ever known. And for fifteen years, he’s been my brother’s best friend.

But lately, what I’m feeling for him isn’t friendship at all.

Why is my heart racing every time his blue eyes lock on mine?
Why does every word he rumbles in my ear make my body come alive?
And worst of all, why did I bet him that I could find a woman he and his son would both love?

If I hadn’t given up on love altogether, Hudson would have been perfect for me. After all, he was there the day my world fell apart. He’s spent the last six years piecing me back together.

There are a million reasons why we could never work, but after a single kiss, I can’t remember any of them.

Now that the time is right, I have to make him mine—before I lose him forever.

About Aly

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her husband and four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and olives. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.

New Release – Ritual by Kandi Steiner

“A nonstop roller coaster of intensity! PSU is the ride you never want to end. Anything Steiner writes, I’m reading.” – Amazon #1 Bestselling Author, Brittainy C. Cherry

Ritual by bestselling author Kandi Steiner is now live! 

Written like your favorite drama television show, the Palm South University series has been called “a mix of Greek meets Gossip Girl with a dash of Friends.” Follow seven college students as they maneuver unrequited love, teacher/student romance, the tangles of “no strings” relationships, love triangles and more. Each “season” has six “episodes,” and just like when your favorite show hits Netflix, you can read just one episode at a time or binge the entire thing. With the perfect mix of angst, emotional romance, and romantic comedy, the Palm South University series is your next guilty addiction.

Drama. Lies. Sex.

Welcome to Palm South University.

The weather isn’t the only thing heating up in South Florida. At a school where fraternities and sororities don’t exactly play by the rules, relationships are bound to be tested. Parties and sex are definitely key ingredients in the Palm South recipe, but what happens when family issues, secret lives, and unrequited love get tossed in the mix?

Follow Cassie, Bear, Jess, Skyler, Erin, Ashlei, and Adam as they tackle college at a small, private beach town university. Written in television drama form, each episode of this serial will pull you deeper and deeper into the world of PSU.

Where the sun is hot and the clothes are scarce, anything can happen.

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.

New Release – Hood River Zero by K. Webster

Hood River Zero

Hood River Hoodlums, Book 4
by K Webster
Publication Date: July 30, 2020
Genres: Forbidden Friends to Lovers Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books

From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a forbidden, friends to lovers romance called Hood River Zero!

Life was nearly stolen from me.
In the blink of an eye, everything changed.
I’m no longer the charismatic, hot playboy Hoodlum.

I’m irrevocably altered.
Damaged both inside and out.

I can’t think. I can’t function. I can’t live.
Not with all this darkness and pain dragging me into unknown depths.
Some days, I wish I never woke up.

But then life takes an unusual turn.
A sweet, sad little girl might be mine.
My dream job is gifted to me.
I have a doctor who cares.
Things are looking up.

Until her.

One mouthy, bratty, mean beautiful young thing complicates everything.
She sees the darkness inside that I’m trying desperately to hide from everyone.
Pokes. Prods. Infuriates.
This girl won’t stop until she’s touched every scar, both inside and out.

I’m not sure how I’m supposed to mentally heal and be a better man when I have the most unapologetic, unpopular mean girl shining her light into every dark crevice inside me.

Annoying. A nuisance. Not worth my time.
I’ll shake her off eventually.
She’s nothing to me.
A Hood River zero.

Try telling my heart that…

This is a full-length high school friends-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book four in the Hood River Hoodlum series that all have interlinking storylines. Hood River Zero shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the final book in the four-book series that gives each Hoodlum a story. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF. The Hood River Hoodlums is now a complete series!

King of Souls; Verona Legacy #2 
(#2 in a duet)

by: L.A. Cotton

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An angsty, modern day Romeo and Juliet caught in the midst of a mafia war, King of Souls is an emotional rollercoaster you don’t want to miss.

Torn apart by circumstances bigger than they thought possible, Nicco and Arianne have to rely on their new found love to get them through some of their toughest situations yet.

While Nicco has been exiled to Boston and Arianne is still living in Verona County both of their hearts are breaking at not being together. Arianne has been promised to the monster who stole her innocence by her own father all over a business deal and facing Scott without Nicco by her side is taxing to say the least. While Nicco hates not being by Arianne’s side, he doesn’t waste it sitting around, he helps his father gather enough evidence to bring the monsters down that threaten his love so when the time is right they will be finally be able to be together forever.

Arianne may have grown up sheltered, but even she knows that what her father’s done is wrong. She’s never felt more betrayed than when he gave her hand in marriage to Scott, the man who has tormented and raped her. To add to her heartache, Nicco has been sent away. It was to protect him and his family, but the more time they spend apart it feels like her heart is being ripped out. She isn’t sure how much more she can take without her true love by her side.

It tears Nicco apart being away from Arianne. Their love may have happened fast, but he can’t see a future without her in it. It takes everything in him to stay away and not tear Scott limb from limb, but the reminder that in doing so will not only hurt Arianne, but also his only family. Why can’t their love be easy?

Will this fated love story end better than their Shakespearean counterpart or have they been doomed like Romeo and Juliet?

49932787. sy475 Read Review: Prince of Hearts

Synopsis:

From bestselling author L A Cotton comes the highly anticipated conclusion to Nicco and Arianne’s duet

Arianne Capizola is living a lie.

Angry. Abandoned. Afraid.

She’d rather spend her days locked away on her father’s estate than with the guy who stole her innocence: her fiancé.

Niccolò Marchetti is living a nightmare.

Broken. Banished. Betrayed.

He’d do anything to save the girl he loves, even if it means paying the ultimate price.

As the truth surrounding their legacies begins to unravel, everything they thought they knew shatters. But Nicco will do anything to protect the girl who taught him how to love, and she will risk it all to save the guy who stole her heart.

The clock is ticking as old and new enemies close in.

Only this time, their love might not be enough to save them.

*King of Souls in the second book in Nicco and Ari’s duet. Due to mature content that some readers may find distressing, this book is recommended for readers 18+

A sexy standalone romance with a single dad you’ll fall hard for! It should be an easy rule to follow – don’t bang your boss…
But I didn’t know who he was when I met him.
And the first time I saw him, our connection sounded like the stuff of romantic legends — that whole “their eyes locked across a crowded room” moment that turned into more.I didn’t believe it. . . . until it happened to me.
Fine, the charming, clever, sexy-as-sin guy in the tailored suit was only trying to buy the same Snoopy lunchbox (as a gift!), but still, our eyes totally locked, and my lady parts definitely tingled as we vied for the prize.
Naturally, I did what any badass business woman would do. Negotiated for the lunchbox, then found my what-if guy online and made plans to see him the next night.
One night only — that was the deal we made.
But one fantastic night had us both changing our minds in the morning. And making plans for another.
Until I walked into the office to learn he just bought my company.
And here’s the biggest rule of romantic legends — no matter what, don’t bang your boss.
Especially if you’re already falling for him.

Review – Reckless Kiss by Tia Louise

52326480. sy475

Reckless Kiss 
(A standalone)

by: Tia Louise

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A beautiful story of unfailing, destined love. Reckless Kiss is a story for the ages, a relevant story of our time, and a love story for everyone.

Love doesn’t matter that your family has an ancient feud.
Love doesn’t matter that your skin is a different color.
Love doesn’t matter that you belong to different social classes.

The phrase “Love is Blind” exists for these very reasons. Love only looks at the person in front of you and doesn’t see the social, economical, religious, or numerous other obstacles in that could potentially stand in your way of being together.

Angel and Deacon fell in love at the age of fifteen and there was no looking back either of them. No distance, or family, or basically anything seemed to stand in their way, until a very old family feud came to light and Angel’s brother basically forbade her from ever seeing Deacon again. This couple never turns on each other, but they have to fight every outside force to keep their love alive.

Deacon won’t let anything stand in his way of making Angel his wife so he goes digging into an almost a century old hunt to find answers to what started this feud, while Angel spends her time in the present building a bridge between their families. They make you believe in love unlike any couple before.

The love these two have for one another never wavers, no matter who or what tries to rip them apart. Your heart will swell with so much emotion. Tia Louise knows how to write a great book, but Reckless Kiss is one of my favorites!

Synopsis:

I love you too much to hate you…

Angelica Treviño was the most beautiful girl I’d ever seen.
I wanted to make her smile, but I had no idea when she did, she’d steal my heart.
Sunset eyes, waves of golden-brown hair, cute little butt…
I’m ready to meet the family and put a ring on it.
Instead, I’m on the wrong end of a gun, her older brother threatening to kill me.

It all started with a kiss…

Deacon Dring is a cocky rich boy with ocean-blue eyes, sexy brown hair, and a chiseled body.
Soft lips that melt my knees, that melt everything.
As a child, my family said he was bad.
They made me promise never to see him again.
But one touch of his hand, one reckless kiss, and I broke that vow…
Many times.
Now we’re adults, and the price of lying is more than I’m willing to pay.
They say we can’t be together. I say try and stop us.

(RECKLESS KISS is a stand-alone, forbidden, billionaire romance about two families who hate each other and the boy + girl who choose to love in spite of their violent past. No cheating. No cliffhanger.)

Review – Bully King by J.A. Huss

53978947. sy475

Bully King; Kings of High Court College #1
(#1 within a series)

by: J.A. Huss

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A college age secret society, secret twists, a twist on a reverse harem, and J.A. Huss is the mastermind behind it all.

Enter a world where secrets weigh more than gold. A society that devalues human life, but those without values want to get in.

High Court College is a prestigious college where one reference can make your entire life path. Very few get the chance to attend the elite school, but if you do your life is set.

Cooper, Ax, and Lars have been friends for ages and all three of them want out of the poisonous place they have grown up. Unfortunately, their fathers are three of the most prominent men in town. The Mayor, the Judge, and the Chairman of High Court. The three powerful men control basically everything around them, which include their sons. They have mandated that the three of them (Cooper, Ax, and Lars) would be in charge of the incoming recruits of the secret society of the Fangs and Feathers for the summer. An old society that performs heinous acts throughout their eight weeks together, but will ultimately bring the recruits tighter together once it is complete.

These acts are not your typical hazing or drinking games. These students have money and power and with that type of leeway comes deviousness that only the rich can buy themselves out of.

This bully romance is unlike anything you will ever read. It is also not like a typical reverse harem book either. As J.A. Huss is unlike any typical author I ever read.

When Cadee first appears in the book as a meek and timid heroine. Do not be fooled by her first impression. Cadee is stronger than just about everyone living in the world around her. Her transformation throughout the story is one that will make you smile, but also made me wonder if she has her own secrets to use as currency too.

Bully King is told from two varying POV, but there are lots of supporting characters that make up this world and have an impact on Cadee and Cooper. There is also a lot of secrecy and doubt cast upon the entire High Court College, but I expect nothing less with a Huss book, which really ups the mystery and makes the entire book a page turner.

As this is only the first book in this series, J.A. Huss has left the door open for so much potential on where the storyline can head. I’m looking forward to the next installment and where these characters are going to lead us, especially how they are going to use their secrets to unravel the very fabric of the High Court world.

Synopsis:

Bully boys.
Arrogant tyrants.

Review – Ritual by Kandi Steiner

49205301. sy475

Ritual; Palm South University #5 
(#5 within a series)

by: Kandi Steiner

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Bring on the college drama, I am completely hooked on PSU!! This is one series, like a favorite TV show that returns season after season, I cannot get enough of.

A new year at PSU, for some of the students this is their last semester, or last year. For all of them they may be another year older, perhaps a touch wiser, but they are still filled with lots of our favorite drama. Ritual is layed out, just like the past four books in six episodes where each character gets a POV focus and all of their stories interweave throughout the entire book. Ritual should not be read as a standalone, only read after the previous four books to have the best understanding.

Jess is entering her final semester of college and finally over her relationship with Jarrett. At the end of last semester she was approached by a freshman, Kade, to be his “teacher”. Jess, also known as J-Love had a well known reputation, one she isn’t ashamed of, so once she decides to put that reputation to good use and really getting Jarrett out of her system for good she says yes. What she didn’t expect was catching feelings for Kade in the process.

Bear, the strong, emotional support guy of the group for everyone really struggles emotionally this book. He crashes hard with everything Erin revealed to him at the end of last semester, his addict mother, his brother that is growing up and making decisions on his own, and more. There are things hitting him at all sides and the big guy isn’t sure how to fix himself. His story is truly heartbreaking. He’s so lost and I just want to give him a hug.

Erin has finally come to grips with her past, her mistakes, and everything that happened to her. She’s getting counseling, going to therapy, and trying to make amends to those she’s wronged. Even with all she’s been through Erin finds herself at a point where she’s open and meets someone at therapy. Gavin makes her feel alive, a feeling she hasn’t felt in a really long time.

Ashlei is finishing up her last semester too and working back at Brandon’s company. However, there is a new intern that gives her a side eye and makes her uncomfortable from the get go. No matter how strong her relationship is with Brandon Ashlei has a bad feeling that something is going to happen to mess it up. So she works hard, keeps her focus on work, but also silently waiting for the other shoe to drop.

After coming in second place at the biggest poker tournament of her life, Skyler is actually happier than ever, that is only because she lost to her boyfriend, Kip. Their relationship is strong, but the only sad part is he is attending school in California while she is still in Florida. They do talk and video chat constantly and of all the couples I feel the best about their lasting relationship.

Cassie and Adam is the couple I continue to feel the most angst over, every single book!! I want to smack them every time. Although isn’t there that couple in every favorite show you watch? They have been official now for over a semester because before that they never could seem to get on the same page. However, this semester an ex makes a reappearance which throws a monkey wrench into their perfect bliss and once again you will shout and scream at this duo.

Kandi Steiner really knocked it out of the park with her return to PSU. I was engrossed from the beginning to the very end. I can hardly wait until the next season, there is still so much I need to know!

Synopsis:

Written like your favorite drama television show, the Palm South University series has been called “a mix of Greek meets Gossip Girl with a dash of Friends.” Follow seven college students as they maneuver unrequited love, teacher/student romance, the tangles of “no strings” relationships, love triangles and more. Each “season” has six “episodes,” and just like when your favorite show hits Netflix, you can read just one episode at a time or binge the entire thing. With the perfect mix of angst, emotional romance, and romantic comedy, the Palm South University series is your next guilty addiction.

Drama. Lies. Sex.

Welcome to Palm South University.

The weather isn’t the only thing heating up in South Florida. At a school where fraternities and sororities don’t exactly play by the rules, relationships are bound to be tested. Parties and sex are definitely key ingredients in the Palm South recipe, but what happens when family issues, secret lives, and unrequited love get tossed in the mix?

Follow Cassie, Bear, Jess, Skyler, Erin, Ashlei, and Adam as they tackle college at a small, private beach town university. Written in television drama form, each episode of this serial will pull you deeper and deeper into the world of PSU.

Where the sun is hot and the clothes are scarce, anything can happen.

Review – Hood River Zero by K. Webster

Book cover for Hood River Zero (Hood River Hoodlums Book 4) by K Webster

Hood River Zero; Hood River Hoodlums #4 
(#4 within a series)

by: K. Webster

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

It is always hard to pick a favorite when it comes to such a phenomenal series, because you can’t get to the end of a series without having to have endured all of the heartache and turmoil prior. With that said Hood River Zero is one my favorites in this series for that very reason. We’ve already had twists, turns, family heartache and so much love between all of the Hoodlums now that we come to the finale, the culmination of everyone else that surround Terrance and Penny, their love story at the center of chaos is silent beauty.

Terrance is still living with the aftermath of a horrific accident. The physical pain, the mental anguish, depression, how to put his life back to together again, etc… We’ve been there through the entire thing on the other side with his friends and family. We held his hand with Cal and struggled through the darkness with Charlotte as Terrance pulled through his coma. The one person who never let him feel weak was Penny and for that Terrance was grateful. It also made him gravitate towards her. He appreciated her most times brutal honesty and somewhere along the way his feelings for Penny began to change.

Penny,  as the youngest English sister, started this series as Hollis’ quirky no-filter sister and with each book became a more prominent secondary character who certainly never took any s**t from anyone. We saw a side of Penny that was honest, but brash, but also in that honesty she cared. She was the one who eventually brought Terrance out of his dark mood following the accident and for that all of his friends are forever grateful to her. A friendship begins between them and then something more. Something Penny never expected for herself as she’s never been attracted to anyone. People annoy her, sounds annoy her, being touched annoys her. So call her surprised when Terrance is the exception to all of those rules.

Out of all of the Hoodlum books, Hood River Zero is the least angsty between the characters. Only in the way that there is no bullying between them, or gang members trying to actively kill them, their love story involves two broken people trying to figure out their place in each others lives. I’m not stating their isn’t drama or angst, I just said this was the least angsty book in the series. K. Webster will not leave you hungry for new adult drama and recall I did say this was the best book in the series, so please do not worry. I tore through this book and could not put it down once I started.

As a series finale, there are so many great hoodlum moments from past characters. Hood River Zero is going to fill you with all the feels and it is by far the book with the biggest heart.

Synopsis:

From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a forbidden, friends to lovers romance called Hood River Zero!

Life was nearly stolen from me.

In the blink of an eye, everything changed.

I’m no longer the charismatic, hot playboy Hoodlum.

I’m irrevocably altered.

Damaged both inside and out.

I can’t think. I can’t function. I can’t live.

Not with all this darkness and pain dragging me into unknown depths.

Some days, I wish I never woke up.

But then life takes an unusual turn.

A sweet, sad little girl might be mine.

My dream job is gifted to me.

I have a doctor who cares.

Things are looking up. 

Until her.

One mouthy, bratty, mean beautiful young thing complicates everything.

She sees the darkness inside that I’m trying desperately to hide from everyone.

Pokes. Prods. Infuriates.

This girl won’t stop until she’s touched every scar, both inside and out.

I’m not sure how I’m supposed to mentally heal and be a better man when I have the most unapologetic, unpopular mean girl shining her light into every dark crevice inside me. 

Annoying. A nuisance. Not worth my time.

I’ll shake her off eventually.

She’s nothing to me.

A Hood River zero.

Try telling my heart that…

This is a full-length high school friends-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book four in the Hood River Hoodlum series that all have interlinking storylines. Hood River Zero shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the final book in the four-book series that gives each Hoodlum a story. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF. The Hood River Hoodlums is now a complete series!

A sexy standalone romance with a single dad you’ll fall hard for! It should be an easy rule to follow – don’t bang your boss…
But I didn’t know who he was when I met him.
And the first time I saw him, our connection sounded like the stuff of romantic legends — that whole “their eyes locked across a crowded room” moment that turned into more.I didn’t believe it. . . . until it happened to me.
Fine, the charming, clever, sexy-as-sin guy in the tailored suit was only trying to buy the same Snoopy lunchbox (as a gift!), but still, our eyes totally locked, and my lady parts definitely tingled as we vied for the prize.
Naturally, I did what any badass business woman would do. Negotiated for the lunchbox, then found my what-if guy online and made plans to see him the next night.
One night only — that was the deal we made.
But one fantastic night had us both changing our minds in the morning. And making plans for another.
Until I walked into the office to learn he just bought my company.

Review – When the Time is Right by Aly Martinez and M. Mabie

53754187. sy475

When the Time is Right
(A standalone)

by: M. Mabie and Aly Martinez

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Brilliant, Suburb, Excellent!! The phenomenal Martinez and Mabie writing duo is back and at their best! This best friends-to-lovers romance is full of snark, an unbreakable friendship, a heroine looking for big D energy and a hero who is modestly able to deliver.

Lex and Hudson have basically grown up together. They have not only shared awkward teenage moments, but laughter, heartache, and everything in between.

Hudson was there when Lex’s fiancé died, helping her pick up the pieces of her life and Lex was there when Hudson became a single/co-parenting father at the young age of 22. They have supported one another and been thick as thieves for years, but their attraction to each other has been hidden behind very high walls. When those walls begin to lower and they both take a peek, could they really have been into each other longer, but completely obvious for most of their lives? Does that really happen in real life? When the time is right it just might.

When the Time is Right is so much fun, full of sarcastic flirtiness, and whether they are friends or lovers the banter is top notch the entire read through. I love that both characters are so thick that neither realized an attraction was there. Their friendship was solid first and foremost which made them falling in love adorable.

Did I say the word adorable…now…let me mention Hudson’s son, Jack. This kid is worthy of his own book. OMG…cutest kid ever written. And Hudson as a single father…how did the man stay single for so long, that is my only question? You are going to fall in love with Jack, which means you will fall in love with Hudson guaranteed!

Synopsis:

Fate doesn’t always happen overnight.

Hudson Bradley is the cockiest, most stubborn, hard-headed man I’ve ever known. And for fifteen years, he’s been my brother’s best friend.

But lately, what I’m feeling for him isn’t friendship at all.

Why is my heart racing every time his blue eyes lock on mine?
Why does every word he rumbles in my ear make my body come alive?
And worst of all, why did I bet him that I could find a woman he and his son would both love?

If I hadn’t given up on love altogether, Hudson would have been perfect for me. After all, he was there the day my world fell apart. He’s spent the last six years piecing me back together.

There are a million reasons why we could never work, but after a single kiss, I can’t remember any of them.

Now that the time is right, I have to make him mine—before I lose him forever.

Review – Breaking News by Ella Frank

53341950. sy475

Breaking News; Prime Time #2 
(#2 in a Trilogy)

by: Ella Frank

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I loved the continuation of Sean and Xander’s story! It was beautiful and steamy, just the right combo for this budding relationship.

Breaking News picked up right where Inside Affair left off, as this is a continuation of a trilogy. This is a story of healing, both emotionally and physically and it’s also a beautiful story of love.

This is Sean Bailey’s first relationship with a man and even though he’s known Xander his entire life it’s just been recently and through this time together that he’s even noticed this attraction to Xander. We left them in book one just admitting this attraction to one another before Xander’s stalker attacked and stabbed Sean. Now as Sean is left to physically heal from his wounds, Xander has emotional wounds to clear from his mind.

Breaking News has steamy moments, but this story is even more about two men falling in love and really discovering one another emotionally, even though they’ve known each other their entire lives. I love how their blinders are slowly removed, little by little, as they open their hearts and really get to know one another.

Their next hurdle, now that there is no longer a stalker and that they realize their attraction is not just close proximity, but true want is letting their friends, family, and the public know about their relationship. This may test their new found love more than anything has yet.

I’m looking forward to see how their relationship is put to the test in the final book, Headlines.

Synopsis:

Breaking News is the continuation of Xander and Sean’s story and should only be read after book one, Inside Affair.

Xander

Sean Bailey, the older brother of my lifelong best friend, has always been a surly, temperamental pain in my ass. But sometime during the last few weeks, I’ve gone and fallen head over heels for him.

Gruff and charming, charismatic in his own way, I’ve found myself looking past my preconceptions and discovered a whole new side to Detective Dick—a side I could fall in love with.

But life isn’t always easy—it can change course in the blink of an eye. Sometimes for the good and sometimes for the bad. I know this because last night I experienced both sides.

I went to Sean for help in guarding my body; what I didn’t expect was for him to steal my heart.

Review – Reign by Siobhan Davis

50663965. sy475

Reign; The Sainthood – Boys of Lowell High #3 
(#3 in a trilogy)

by: Siobhan Davis

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Blown away!! I’d give ten stars to this entire trilogy!! Siobhan has once again knocked it out of the park with this final installment with a book that is not only unforgettable, but also completely dynamic!

Reign is the final book in the Sainthood trilogy and it brings three times the emotions, three times the jaw dropping plot twists, and three times the panty melting smexy moments.  It is everything you’ve been waiting for and so much more.

Reign is appropriately titled on many levels, the first being Harlow reigning as queen and Saint, Galen, Caz, and Theo all sitting by her side as her kings. Their love for one another grows stronger throughout this last book and the emotional connection they all share only increases as the danger grows.

Harlow has never once been a wallflower. Her strong female character, take no prisoners, feels no shame over what she wants and desires are just a few of the traits I love about her. She truly reigns over whatever task she takes on and doesn’t let anyone stand in her way, not even her men, but she is more willing to let them stand by her side now that she knows they are hers and she is theirs.

All of the boys have shown a ton of growth since the beginning of the trilogy, but none more than Galen. He has truly stamped a place in my heart and his turn around completely melted everything inside of me.

As we got to know Theo and his reasons for pushing Harlow away initially, his loving and gentle nature becomes so easy to like. His personal journey through this final book is so moving I loved reading it and could have gotten lost in it more. Siobhan did a glorious job when she delved into Theo’s mind and personally I’d love revisiting moments with Harlow, Theo, and Caz.

Caz is probably the one who has changed the least, considering he wears his personality and emotions on his sleeve. He’s funny, outwardly loving, and fiercely loyal he is the puppy dog of the group and it’s hard not to love him.

Saint displays a lot of vulnerability in Reign, while still being the hard, bada** leader he is. He’s never really known love growing up under a man like Sinner, but having Harlow in his life shows him what that is and you will fall so hard for the leader of this crew.

These five have a lot on their plate, but when they work together they are a force to be reckoned with.

Reign is an explosive experience. It’s moving and intense. You’ll love this final book!

Synopsis:

The thrilling final installment in The Sainthood series by USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis.

Everything changed after the attempt on my life, and now, I’m more determined than ever to crush my enemies until they lie in pieces at my feet.

Sinner believes he has pushed me into a corner, but he underestimates my thirst for revenge.

Nothing will stand in my way.

And I’m no longer in this alone. Saint, Galen, Caz, and Theo have won my trust and my heart. Together, we are an unbreakable team and an unstoppable force.

Staying one step ahead of the game is critical to our success, so we’ve little choice but to partner with the most unlikely of allies. The situation is tense and fraught with danger, and it’s not just our lives at stake.

Everything rests on finding the evidence that links The Sainthood to Daphne Leydon’s kidnapping and murder, and we’re running out of time.

Sinner thinks war has already come to Lowell. But he has overlooked his deadliest enemy and the challenge that comes from within.

We won’t stop until he’s defeated and we have taken his crown.

Sinner is going down.

RELEASE BLITZ

Heartbreaker 

By: Julie Kriss
Cocky Hero Club
Release Date: July 19, 2020

53249048. sy475

Holden Whittaker broke my heart when I was eighteen. What kind of guy stands up his prom date and leaves her hanging, waiting for him to show up? A total jerk, that’s who.

Never mind. I left my tiny nowhere town and moved to New York to follow my dream of becoming an actress.

Ten years later, my dream hasn’t happened, and I’m working as the office supply girl at Morgan Financial Holdings, doing my best to keep my paycheck and not get fired by the world’s most terrifying boss. Life couldn’t get much worse, until I get stuck in an elevator and guess who comes to rescue me? In a city of eight million people, it’s Holden.

Turns out he’s moved to New York, too, to be an EMT. I don’t want to see my teenage nemesis as one of the good guys, but he’s out saving lives every day, and he’s still gorgeous and cocky. I could fall for him all over again, and that’s a problem. Because it’s only a matter of time before Holden crushes me again.

My hometown heartbreaker isn’t the guy I left behind anymore. If I could stop hating him, I might belong with him. The question is, which one of us will get hurt first?

Review – More Than Dare You by Shayla Black

More Than Dare You; More Than Words #6 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Shayla Black

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Ooooooooh…dirty, dirty, dirty, but also filled with lots of heart.

I have to say this was one of the most emotionally intense books that I’ve probably ever read from the male’s POV before. I felt like Shayla had a connection that was deeply tapped into the male psyche and everything that Trace was feeling emotionally and physically came through like I was living inside his head. It was a beautiful connection that had be completely immersed and unwilling to leave. So while this was hot…it was also heartfelt.

Trace is known to be a playboy, but his life changed the moment he became a father. A single father at that. When his sister-in-law asks him for a favor, to help one of her friends out of a sexual slump, it isn’t necessarily a hardship considering he’s been on a dry spell since the birth of his son.

One night is all they are both looking for, but could it be more?

Masey wasn’t looking for more than a fling while visiting Hawaii, but things became a bit more complicated the longer she stayed in Trace’s company. He is certainly more than the playboy persona her best friend led her to believe, but she was only prepared to visit, not to stay forever.

Could she possibly dare to hope for more?

While this is part of a series, it can be read as a complete standalone.

Synopsis:

Single dad Trace Weston isn’t looking for love, but fate and a sexy, sassy woman he can’t resist have other plans for true love in More Than Dare You!

I dared her to spend a hot, no-strings weekend with me.
Now I’m determined to keep her forever.

Review – The What If Guy by Lauren Blakely

The What If Guy; The Guys Who Got Away #2 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Lauren Blakely

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Adorable, dirty, and lots of fun! The What If Guy is exactly what I love in a contemporary romance novel!

Logan is a single dad and just a bit rusty in the dating department. Bryn is a tad gunshy in the dating world herself, but when these two have a connection over a Snoopy lunchbox nonetheless, but are unable to close the dating deal  while making flirty banter over Joe Cool, a new app helps them meet and have that first amazing date.

It isn’t until after a fantastic, whirlwind night that they both discover that Logan is the new CEO of Bryn’s company and that second date they’d planned isn’t exactly appropriate. However, it is really hard to resist the temptation when it is working just down the hall. What if this is destiny and they both pass it up? What if this is forever and instead they missed their chance.

The What If Guy is fun and very steamy. I loved every moment of this book! (P.S. the cats in this books are priceless)!

Synopsis:

It should be an easy rule to follow – don’t bang your boss…
But I didn’t know who he was when I met him.

And the first time I saw him, our connection sounded like the stuff of romantic legends — that whole “their eyes locked across a crowded room” moment that turned into more.

Fine, the charming, clever, sexy-as-sin guy in the tailored suit was only trying to buy the same Snoopy lunchbox (as a gift!), but still, our eyes totally locked, and my lady parts definitely tingled as we vied for the prize.

One night only — that was the deal we made.

But one fantastic night had us both changing our minds in the morning. And making plans for another.

He’s prince charming. Just not hers.

 

I have a secret.

I stole a heart, or rather a marriage contract.

It wasn’t mine to own, to look at or to even consider.

But it was there for the taking so I took it.

Huge mistake.

Ronan Astor is a nobility in this world.

Arrogant player.

Heartless bastard.

Vicious prince.

Now, he’s out to destroy me.

What he doesn’t know is that I’m out to destroy him too.

My name is Teal Van Doren, and I’m where princes go to die.

✮ About The Proposal ✮

When I envisioned Zara Logan dropping to her knees in front of me, this wasn’t what I had in mind…

I was expecting a lot less glaring and a lot more moaning.

Instead, she’s proposing an enticing deal that I can’t bear to walk away from.

To land one of the city’s biggest clients, she wants us to put our differences aside and play fake fiancés for the next thirty days.

So, I slip the diamond ring onto her finger and agree to play the perfect fiancé. How hard can this be?

A hell of a lot harder than I thought… 

She’s infuriatingly stubborn and she thinks I’m a cocky jerk with an enormous ego. (She’s right, but I can definitely back it up…)

As our long days stretch into even later nights, it’s getting harder to remember we’re only playing pretend, which means one thing.

She won’t be faking it for long…

The Proposal is a brand-new series from Maya Hughes. Get ready for a fun, fake fiancé romance to kick off the SWANK series.

✮ Excerpt From The Proposal ✮

“You want me to propose to you?” With muscles tense and tight, she stared at me before crossing the room to me in two strides.

“It’ll make a wonderful story to tell if anyone asks. Or we can call the whole thing off and confess, but you’re the one who led us down this path with the relationship talk. Kathleen would probably kick us off the project. Or maybe just you.”

Her gaze narrowed. “Just when I think you’re not a complete asshole. Fine.” The word shot out like a nail gun. Covering her mouth, she mumbled into her hand. “Will you pretend to be my fake fiancé for the next thirty days?”

I cupped my hand around my ear. “That wasn’t exactly romantic and you’re not even on bended knee. Boyz II Men would be disappointed.” I dangled the ring in front of her.

She squeezed her forehead and snatched it out of my hand.

I braced myself for her to fling it straight into my face, but she didn’t. Hiking up the skirt of her suit an inch, she lowered herself to the floor with her gaze trained on mine. The intensity of her emerald gaze sent my blood thrumming through my veins. Her thick eyelashes framed her eyes and the ill wishes she was trying to sear into my brain.

But damn if her sinking to her knees in front of me didn’t flash me into a whole different set of circumstances with her where she wasn’t wishing me dead and I wasn’t trying to steal this project out from under her.

“Leo Charles Wilder, will you please agree to be my fake fiancé for the next thirty days and make me the most miserable woman on earth?” She held out the ring in her palm.

I tapped my finger against my lips and stared up at the ceiling. “When you put it like that…”

New Release – Trick You by Tracy Lorraine

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Trick You
Series: Rebel Ink #2
Author: Tracy Lorraine
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 16, 2020
BLURB

I hated to trick her…

But I knew she would never go for the real me.
She was beautiful, smart and funny—everything I could want.

And I was… well. Me.
Tattooed, foul mouthed, bad boy.

I told one little white lie hoping to meet someone different. And I did. 

Danniella Abbot.

She wasn’t who I was expecting, and I guess she could say the same, because Danni made it very clear she wasn’t interested in me or my reasons for lying.

The fact that she was my best friend’s little sister only complicated an already impossible situation.

I didn’t intend on tricking her. I just wanted her to give me a chance, to discover who I am underneath the ink.

She can fight me all she likes because we both know that I’m exactly her type. She just doesn’t know it yet.

What happens when you wake up married to the woman you tricked into a date?

You kiss the bride and prove her wrong.

Review – Ignite by Emma Renshaw

Ignite (Burn, #2)

Ignite; Burn #2 
(A standalone within a series)

by:Emma Renshaw

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Two lonely souls from broken homes ignite the pages of this beautiful book that will touch your heart.

A town fire changed the lives of many people forever in Hawk Valley, but in Ignite we are focused on Zoe Boswell, a girl who feels responsible for multiple deaths that followed when a towering bonfire crashed to the ground after she threw in a family portrait and a young firefighter, Ridge, who was there that fateful night and pulled his very first rescue from the wreckage, a beautiful girl named Zoe.

It could be destiny that these two met during harrowing circumstances, or was it chance? Ridge’s very first call as a firefighter and a moment Zoe wishes she could take back that will haunt her for the rest of her life. Unfortunately, because of this guilt once Zoe is released from the hospital she leaves Hawk Valley and doesn’t return. Not for many years at least.

Eleven years later, at the final request of Zoe’s aunt, Zoe finds herself crossing the city border of Hawk Valley once again, something that she never thought she’d ever do again. She was only planning to be in town long enough to spread her aunt’s ashes, but the longer she’s there she finds herself staying a week, and then a month and it has a lot to do with one sexy firefighter.

Ridge thought a lot about Zoe over the years, but he didn’t expect to see her again. When she comes back to town he is instantly drawn to Zoe. The more time he spends with her, even though he knows she’s only in town for a brief time, he knows he is willing to do anything to keep her to stay.

The longer Zoe is in town, accidents begin to happen and those accidents all connect back to her. As much as Zoe would like to stay, everyone around her is in danger, something she’s always known since the night of the fire. Deep down she knew she wasn’t staying, but the time has come and saying goodbye is one of the hardest things she’s ever done.

Both Ridge and Zoe didn’t have the best cookie cutter parental upbringings and yet they both found their own family to surround themselves with and became better people in spite of their biological connections. I always love this message when I’m reading and it’s a warm hearted message to remember.

 

Synopsis:

One night changed an entire town.

One girl changed my entire life.

After she left without saying goodbye, I never expected to see her again.
The fire that changed Hawk Valley was my first night on the job. She was my first save as a firefighter. But she wasn’t the first to walk out of my life without looking back.

She was just another number on that list.

I grew used to putting out sparks in my personal life, too. But when she came back, I couldn’t stop myself from chasing after her. Just a fling, we said. But where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

Of all people, I should have known that. It could never be casual with us. It was always going to become an inferno.

Until someone else put out the fire.

A portion of Emma Renshaw’s first week proceeds will be donated to the ALS Association in honor of George Gallegos, Emma’s uncle who died of ALS in February of 2019.

New Release – Join the Club by Lani Lynn Vale

Image may contain: 4 people, beard
Release Date: July 14

 


Image may contain: 1 person, beard and textThere are a few lessons one has to learn for themselves. Then there are the lessons that most people don’t have to learn because it’s just not done.
For instance, most people know instinctively that they shouldn’t crave the mother of their brother’s child.

 

Bourne Pena isn’t most men.

 

Bourne does everything he can to fight the attraction he feels for Delanie, but in the end, his refusal to go there almost ends up costing him his life.

 

***

 

Delanie Davidsdottir just wanted to forget. One night, she wanted to feel like a normal human being.

 

That one night changes her life and gives her a son that becomes her heart and soul. From that point forward, she does her level best to keep her head on straight and not make any more mistakes.

 

And falling for her child’s father’s twin brother—say that three times fast— would be a mistake. Not only is he Trouble with a capital T, he’s also a SWAT officer that puts his life on the line every single day.

 

She can’t take another loss like the one she suffered once before.

 

Then again, Delanie never encountered a man like Bourne Pena before, either.

Review – The Proposal by Maya Hughes

The Proposal; SWANK #1 
(The beginning of a new series)

by: Maya Hughes

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Another Maya Hughes hit and the beginnings of another wonderful series to grab ahold of and look forward to.

Zara Logan is an extremely hard worker, but never seems to get the breaks to get ahead. Working at an event planner company where she is taken advantage of, but she needs her job to not only pay her bills, but the expensive tuition for her brothers school, Zara barely has time to sleep at night before she’s back in the office for another day of work.

When she’s given an opportunity to plan her own event, well…co-plan an event with a rival event planning company she takes the opportunity knowing the bonus will swing all of her bills and then some, unfortunately she didn’t know she’d have to work with the infuriating man who squashed her breakfast and spilled her coffee that very morning.

Leo Wilder may be a washed up NFL player, but at least he still had his health. At least that is what he still tells himself everyday. The injury that ended his career could have been so much worse and he knows that, but he has no idea what to do with the rest of his life. After stopping by to visit his uncle and hearing that his event planning business needs help, Leo offers his services since he seriously has nothing better to do, how hard could planning events be?

Leo may rethink his offer of help when the spitfire who ran into him that very morning, causing a chain reaction of spilling coffee down her blouse and stepping on her croissant walks through the door.

Leo and Zara get off on shaky ground, but through their combined and even fresh eyes in the industry, pull off a great event, but that wasn’t what caught the eye of the contract. It was the fact that they appeared as a couple and a misunderstanding surrounding one engagement ring. (How is that possible, it’s cute and will totally make sense) To pull off the rest of the deal they have to continue to be “engaged” and considering how they originally met this will take a monumental feat.

However, the longer they spend time together and the more their walls come down, the more they might actually like one another and the less faking they may have to actually do. Actually, it might be harder to walk away when everything is all said and done.

This is just the beginning of a new series and you get insight into how this new series SWANK will continue from here. I don’t want to give away what direction Maya is planning yet, but I’m really excited for what direction she is taking this series. It’s new and nothing like she’s done yet and I really think you’ll like where she’s taking this one.
