New Release – Nixon’s Promise by Riley Edwards

Former Navy SEAL Nixon Swagger was home.

After twelve years of service and twice as many deployments, all Nix wanted was quiet. He’d sought the solace of the land he’d grown up on and found the peace he needed to silence the noise and figure out his next move. Nixon’s stay was supposed to be temporary. He wasn’t supposed to meet a feisty, head-strong woman who made his pulse race and set his body on fire. Falling in love hadn’t been part of his plan. Taking a government contract to stop a homegrown terrorist group hadn’t been either, but when the organization threatens to attack Philadelphia, he had no choice but to accept.

McKenna Wilson was living. Every day was the same. Raising her two teenage siblings didn’t leave time for much else. Most days, she was okay with that. Then she bumped into the sexy war hero and, in an instant, her world changed. She had no idea falling for Nixon would be so dangerous. Now she was going head-to-head with the small-town’s dirty sheriff who was hell-bent on ruining Nixon and avenging a fifteen-year-old grudge. She’d lost her heart, but losing her life wasn’t part of the plan.

Nixon Swagger had learned a few things as a Navy SEAL—adapt, improvise, and overcome were among the many. In the middle of an inferno, so ominous even Dante wouldn’t buy a ticket, Nixon must adapt to his new surroundings and overcome multiple threats before he loses the woman he loves.

Review – Nixon’s Promise by Riley Edwards

Nixon’s Promise; Gemini Group #1 (Series)
by Riley Edwards (Author)

This review is from: June 18, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

If Riley Edwards has asked me for ingredients for what I love in a novel…she added all of my favorites in Nixon’s Promise.

✔ Small town romance
✔ Alpha male with a huge heart
✔ Suspenseful plotline
✔ Family and friends that add just the right dash of flavor

This is one of Riley’s best books to date! Filled with heat, suspense, chemistry, an alpha male who isn’t over the top, but completely yummy and insta-love-worthy. Nixon’s Promise is one to add to your TBR now so you have it ready to read when it releases.

Nixon Swagger is a former Navy SEAL. He’s home trying to repair and update his family home and farm from years of neglect. His father passed away several years ago and unfortunately his land has sat vacant since. Nixon doesn’t mind hard work, but he appreciates the helping hand of his neighbor’s brother, Zack, a teen who has also found himself recently without parents. Zack is living with his older sisters not too far from his own farm and Nix really doesn’t mind Zach’s help especially when it comes to Zack’s oldest sister, McKenna. Nix is all too willing to provide male guidance to the teenage boy and helping out McKenna, who has her hands full raising her younger siblings, if it means spending time with her. She is smart, beautiful, and so giving. It isn’t long before Nixon finds he wants to spend any spare moment in her presence.

McKenna Wilson has her hands full and is all too grateful when her sexy neighbor offers to help. She has been beside herself in raising her much younger brother and sister. Actually, lost doesn’t even begin to describe her emotions on taking on this monumental task. So when Nix steps in on numerous occasions to help, give a guiding hand, just be support to lean on, McKenna lets him, especially when she notices how Zack looks up to him as a role model. Now if only she could get her sister on board and life would be great.

Aside from the family drama, Nixon is approached from one of his former teammates to help the government stop a terrorist attack, in an off the books way. Nix is highly intrigued, knowing he’s been wanting to form his own company once he got his life in order and like they say, there is no time like the present…and so the Gemini Group is formed.

I don’t want to give more away, because you really should experience the suspenseful plot yourself….sooooo….

Nixon’s Promise is the origin story, per say, as to how this group is formed. It’s brilliantly put together, along with introducing the other members of the Gemini Group and the small town in which the base of operations will take place. McKenna, Nixon, and her family will play pivotal roles going forward…I have a feeling…so if you love Riley’s books I’d suggest picking up this one, especially because it’s sooooooo good!

New Release – Claiming Tuesday By Riley Edwards

Title: Claiming Tuesday (The Next Generation, #4)
Author: Riley Edwards
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 30th
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Tuesday Knowls is done. Once burned, twice shy. Twice burned? Game over. On the outside Tuesday has it all. She comes from money, she’s a beautiful runway model, her smile comes easy, and she’s quick to laugh. But looks can be deceiving. Inside, she’s lost and lonely. So when the smokin’ hot firefighter swoops in with his sweet talk and promises, she decides to be the one who uses, for once.

Jackson Clark is a man who knows what he wants. And he wants Tuesday. He sees past the beautiful façade she shows the world straight to the pain she hides. When Tuesday offers him a friends with benefits arrangement—minus the friendship—he has no choice but to accept her offer. He’s willing to do anything to get close to the elusive woman and show her he’s worth the risk.

When Tuesday starts getting presents from a secret admirer, she goes into a tailspin. She’s been down this ugly road before and she knows how it can destroy her life.

Can she really trust that Jackson is the good guy in this mess? And, if he is, will she realize in time that not only will he protect her heart, but he might just save her life?

Claiming Tuesday; The Next Generation #4 (Series)
by Riley Edwards (Author)

This review is from: April 20, 2019 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Once again Riley Edwards captured me from the very first page and held me in her grasp until the very last page! I cannot get enough of the Next Generation!

Jackson Clark is a man who knows what he wants; determined, focused, caring, all things a firefighter should be and more. When he sets his sights on Tuesday Knowls that’s it for him, she is the woman who sets his blood on fire, his heart racing, and whom he can see a future with. Now if Tuesday would just get on board with the plan everything would be easy sailing. Although the pushback she gives is also what attracts her to him as well, so he really wouldn’t change a thing about her.

Being loved for your superficial beauty can leave a lot of emotional baggage. When you top that with abuse of trust from people in your inner circle, you begin to live in a very small circle of people and allowing people in becomes very difficult. Tuesday hasn’t allowed anyone in her circle in a very long time, so when Jackson breaks through and doesn’t allow her to give excuses for kicking him back out, she doesn’t know how to handle the sexy fireman.

When Tuesday’s life begins to spiral out of control, she soon learns that the Clark family and his entire extended family is more than she ever could have imagined. Never having experienced a caring environment of her own, Tuesday doesn’t know how to handle the love and support they all all show each other. Jackson is about to make sure she never forgets the feeling of having people at your back and more importantly the love he can give her everyday for the rest of her life.

Jackson Clark is such a beautiful human being, I love that he looks past the outer package and a lot of the crankiness Tuesday throws at him, until she finally realizes he’s someone she can trust. I can empathize with Tuesday on so many levels she broke my heart, I understand the pain she faced with allowing people in. Too often in my life I heard the comment, “Wow, you’re really nice. I didn’t expect that.”  Um, thanks for the backhanded compliment. This is not my story, but all I’ll say is I felt for Tuesday and completely adored Jackson.

Author: Riley Edwards
Genre: Military Romance
Release Date: March 12, 2019
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Tatiana Jones is no stranger to the battlefield. One look at her scarred flesh tells the tales of her time in captivity. But it’s not only her skin the bears the marks her failures, doubt and a healthy dose cynicism now clouds her vision. She has also mastered the fine art of deception. In her line of work it is a necessity. 


Former Navy SEAL Brooks Miller is living the good life working as a mercenary. Employed by the highly sought-after Z Corps, a private, special-ops company, there are no shortage of contracts sending him around the world. He lives wild and free with nothing tying him down—just the way he likes it.

And when she tries to hide behind snark and sass he decides on the spot he wants to know more.


Tatiana doesn’t have time for games. She’s on the hunt for the man who left her life in ruins. Brooks has something else in mind, something more, something far more permanent than the no strings fun Tatiana is offering. He had her right where he wanted her until the hunters become the prey and their world explodes. It will take more than the Gold Team to bring down a Saudi Prince out for blood. Their only hope is the one and only, king of all things cyber, John “Tex” Keegan. Can Tex get search and rescue team to them in time, or will it be a recovery mission?

Review – Brooks; Gold Team #1 by Riley Edwards

Brooks; Gold Team #1 (Series)
by Riley Edwards (Author)

This review is from: March 9, 2019 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

A new novel by Riley Edwards with crossover splashes from Susan Stoker’s novels. The Gold Team world is filled with spies, former military men, plots and twists that will keep the pages turning, and lots of steamy chemistry.

Tatiana Jones is a former CIA operative, who is now an off-the-books spy working for a black ops organization called The Company, or as the government would probably refer to her as “rogue”. Trouble. Tatiana had lots of reasons for why she has a chip on her shoulder, carries a grudge, and why she now works outside of the lines. She doesn’t care what people think of her, she only cares about her mission. When the Gold Team gets in her way she cares, however, when the moment comes when she is no longer able to carry out her mission without them, she realizes she’d better play nice or else she’ll lose all the work she’s already put into her job.

Brooks Miller is a former SEAL who now works for the Gold Team. He may no longer work for the Navy, but he still has a team at his back when out on missions. Running into Tatiana Jones, a lone spy with no backup, has his hackles raised and his blood running hot. No other woman has ever gotten him hot and bothered both for the lies she has told and for the protective feelings he has around her. Tatiana is a beautiful woman, but something else pulls at him and until he figures it out he doesn’t want to let her leave his side.

Two very strong-willed people working together could be the answer to taking down a monster and at the end of the day they may be just what the other needs to soothe their souls. Working together may either save them or destroy them both, because even though you may work together, there is very little trust among spies.

Winter is one of the best times to sit down, curl up on the couch and read a good book.

Prepare for the New Adult/Second Chance emotional ride in Ruthless King. What if everything you had in your first love could be back, but everything you threw away was a mistake? More importantly, what if everything you ever wanted was built in a world of lies by the very people you should have been able to trust? Confused?? Don’t be. Ruthless King will break your heart over and over, but I promise Maya will mend it before the very last page. 

Ruthless King; The Kings of Rittenhouse #3

A STANDALONE second chance, enemies to lovers romance.

My dick never got me in half as much trouble as my heart…

We were high school sweethearts. I was head over heels for her and no one could tell me we weren’t going to last forever. College? Going pro? My family’s money? None of it mattered. She was all I needed.

Then she ripped my heart out. But I’m not going to let that happen again. 

She’s back. Invading my life and acting like she was the wronged one. The pain is still there, but I can’t keep my eyes off her. I can’t stop thinking about her and how much was left unsaid between us. Being this close is making me question everything I thought I knew about her. 

This time everything will be on my terms. Everything…

This year started off with so many good reads. The Kiss Thief wrecked me from the get go. I was not prepared for the emotional toil that this book took me on right out of the gate, but at the end of the journey it is still a book I can say was well worth the ride and set me up for a fantastic 2019 reading year.


The Kiss Thief

by L.J. Shen

They say your first kiss should be earned.

Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.

They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.

Mine were broken before we left church.

They say your heart only beats for one man.

Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.

I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.

Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.

They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.

I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.

One kiss.
Two men.
Three lives.
Entwined together.

And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.

Tanner has to be one of the dreamiest hero’s, I want to be real, that I’ve read in a long time.  His old soul mixed with artistic talent, splash in his love of reading and just plain smart brain all wrapped up in a today’s sexy no frills man. Whew…my panties melted off over and over. Tanner may be the youngest Sexton brother, but he is by far my favorite.


Tanner; Sexton Brothers #3

by Lauren Runow and Jeannine Colette

“A kiss was all I needed.”
“Looks like you got what you wished for.”
“Yes. About that…”

I was supposed to find a finely dressed businessman, have a one-night stand and forget about my failed relationship. Instead, I meet Tanner Sexton—a gorgeous man in street clothes, messy hair and the sexiest smile I’ve ever seen.

When my ex shows up at the bar, Tanner notices my panic and kisses me just so the prick can see. Then he takes off, leaving me breathless.

So, I do what any rational person would. I chase after him onto the subway, and embark on a wild night in New York City with a complete stranger.

No matter how much I fight it, this mysterious artist painted his soul onto my skin, and I haven’t been able to forget him. Our romance is one for the ages, but age isn’t the only thing standing in our way..

Lexi Blake is back with the second book in The Forgotten series of Masters and Mercenaries with Lost and Found. This series has been amazing with all the lost boys that Ian Taggart has “adopted”. Now, keep in mind these are grown men and he is keeping them safe because they are being hunted by multiple agencies. The tension is high as the men try to track down information on who they are, while avoiding everyone after them.  It’s as simple as; what they don’t know could get them killed, but what was lost is always found. 


Lost and Found; (Masters and Mercenaries, The Forgotten #2)

by Lexi Blake

Owen Shaw and his “brothers” lost everything, their entire existence erased. Science had robbed he and all the Lost Boys of their memories and their past, but not their future. Hunted by every intelligence agency in the world, they are focused on two goals: find a cure for what was done to them and ensure that the technology that ruined their lives doesn’t get out into the world. Rebecca Walsh might be the key to achieving both. Owen has been studying her closely, living in her building, and he cannot resolve how such a beautiful, giving woman could have helped design the evil process that destroyed his past.

Dr. Rebecca Walsh has dedicated her life to researching the secrets of the mind. Her atmospheric rise in her field was fueled by the horror of watching her mother’s agonizing journey into madness at the hands of a disease with no cure. She vowed to never rest until she finds it. But obsession takes a heavy toll, and when Owen moves into her building she realizes how much of her life she has missed out on. Owen opens her eyes to a whole new world, filled with joy, laughter, and possibly love.

Owen and Rebecca grow closer, unraveling more about each other and the mysteries surrounding her connection to Hope McDonald. As the sinister forces working against the Lost Boys descend on Toronto, secrets long buried are uncovered that could shatter the bonds holding the Lost Boys together and cost Rebecca her life.

I love reading Riley Edwards. Her characters are rich, full of depth and her plot never wavers or leaves me hanging. If anything I’m left wanting more. More of the characters she creates. More of the family she introduces me to. Just more, more, more. Finding Mercy is the 3rd book in the Next Generation series of a world she’s already introduced us to. These are the children from parents we’ve already fallen in love with. Begin reading this series and fall in love with the next generation.


Finding Mercy

by Riley Edwards

“So much emotion it flew off the page and knocked the wind out of me. Finding Mercy was another great story by the absolutely brilliant Riley Edwards.” Jennifer Pierson: The Power of Three Readers 

DEA Jason Walker became a widower at Twenty-eight. Two years later he’s still torturing himself with guilt. They’d married young, and she’d been his first love, but her illness changed everything. They’d fought a losing battle and he’d held her to the very end. Now he just wants to be left alone with his misery and memories.

Mercy James is no stranger to grief and loneliness. Her brother’s death of a drug overdose, and her police officer father’s death in the line of duty were the driving forces behind her pursuit of a career in the DEA. In spite of–or maybe because of–her past, Mercy doesn’t believe in feeling sorry for others, or for herself.

When a case brings Jason and Mercy together, and their attraction heats up, can her tough, straightforwardness help Jason learn to live in the light again? He’d lost his first love, but is he ready for a forever love?

How many ways are there to laugh. I I could Google the answer, but instead, let me tell you just a few of the ways I engaged in LOLing my way through The Risk. I snickered, snorted, giggled, unlady-like gwafed, most likely brayed like a donkey, cackled, had bursts of uncontrollable bouts of laughter where I read and reread the same sentences over and over just so I could partake in tears-rolling-down-my-face laughing just to name a few. This book hit my funny bone in all the right spots and that was just the beginning of why I loved this book. Please pick it up and find out for yourself all the ways you can LOL.

The Risk; Briar U #2

by Elle Kennedy

A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy. THE RISK takes you back to the world of hot hockey players, feisty heroines, bro banter, and steamy scenes… 

Everyone says I’m a bad girl. They’re only partly right—I don’t let fear rule me, and I certainly don’t care what people think. But I draw the line at sleeping with the enemy. As the daughter of Briar’s head hockey coach, I’d be vilified if I hooked up with a player from a rival team.

And that’s who Jake Connelly is. Harvard’s star forward is arrogant, annoying, and too attractive for his own good. But fate is cruel—I require his help to secure a much-coveted internship, and the sexy jerk isn’t making it easy for me.

I need Connelly to be my fake boyfriend.

For every fake date…he wants a real one.

Which means this bad girl is in big trouble. Nothing good can come from sneaking around with Jake Connelly. My father would kill me, my friends will revolt, and my post-college career is on the line. But while it’s getting harder and harder to resist Jake’s oozing sex appeal and cocky grin, I refuse to fall for him.

That’s the one risk I’m not willing to take.

What He Never Knew; What He Doesn’t Know #3

by Kandi Steiner

I never learn my lesson. 

And I always want what I can’t have.

When Sarah Henderson walks into my life, I tell myself she’s off limits. She’s my student, sixteen years younger than me, and my boss’s niece. It doesn’t matter that I see the same pain reflected in her eyes that I have in my own, or that the dead organ better known as my heart kicks to life when she’s around.

I’ve been here before, and I know how this ends.

It’s been two years since I fell for the last woman I knew I couldn’t have, the one with the ring on her finger that I chose to ignore.

Two years of trying to overcome that heartache when Sarah slides into my life.

Another woman I can’t have. Another woman I can’t stop myself from wanting.

I never learn my lesson, but with a constant reminder of how that last forbidden love burned, I think I’ve finally learned this one.

This time, I won’t chase what’s off limits.

This time, I’m staying away.

And I’ll keep telling myself that until I believe it.
