New Release – Controlled Chaos by Nikki Ash

Title: Controlled Chaos
Series: Love & Lyrics
Author: Nikki Ash
Genre: Single Mom, Rock Star Romance
Release Date: June 23, 2022

Camden
I’ve been in love with my best friend since high school.
My biggest regret? Walking away without telling her.
I planned to. But then catastrophe struck, making us part ways without a word.
She left for Boston with her fiancé, while I left for L.A. with my band–Raging Chaos.
For the next five years, I lived and breathed music, trying to forget the beautiful girl who shattered my heart without even knowing it.
Until I see her again…
I walked away once, and I’ve learned my lesson.
Layla is my forever, not another item in my pile of regrets.
And she’s about to find that out.
 
Layla
The moment I saw Camden on stage, something inside me came to life
His tragic song of unrequited love was a confession that had me questioning everything.
Five years might’ve changed who we are—he’s a rock star and I’m a single mom—but my feelings for him are as strong as ever.
His lyrics make falling in love seem easy. For him—maybe it is.
Only I’ve learned the hard way that real life isn’t as simple as writing a love song.

Review – Controlled Chaos by Nikki Ash

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

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

Publication Date: June 23, 2022

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

Author: Nikki Ash

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

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

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

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

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

Synopsis:
🎶 BLURB 🎶

Camden

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

My biggest regret? Walking away without telling her.

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

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

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

Until I see her again…

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

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

And she’s about to find that out.

Layla

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blog Tour – Crossing Borders by Marie James

 Release Date: June 9
Although I take my job very seriously—being the resident charmer, the man responsible for helping clients with security, all the while making it look like I’m the newest love interest of insanely gorgeous women—it looks like it’s all fun and games.
I’m getting paid to go on dates to some of the most glamorous places all around the world after all, but at the end of the day, it’s still work.
When the assignment is over, I walk away—usually with a smile and another notch in my bedpost, but who am I to turn down the perks?
This new assignment should be no different. I can play any role handed to me.
Hell, I love a new challenge.
Only Archer Bremen is different… and not just for the obvious reasons.
His British accent hits me in a way I never expected.
The scowl on his face makes me think of a million things I could do to make it fade.
His smile tells me that this new assignment is going to change everything…

Let’s see…where to begin…

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

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

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

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

If I’m not writing; I’m reading.

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

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

Crossing Borders; Blackbridge Security #10
(#10 within a series)

Publication Date: June 9, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Fake Boyfriend/Bodyguard/MM Romance

Author: Marie James

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I can hardly wait for everyone else to discover how fantastic Brooks and Archer are together!! I loved their story and this book was the perfect culmination to the end of the Blackbridge series.

There have been hints, easter eggs, and small teasers for multiple books now on what could be happening in Brooks’ professional and personal life, but nothing like the bombs dropped in the last book that actually confirmed what was coming down the pipeline. I don’t know about anyone else, but I was ecstatic to have it all actually confirmed and even more so that their story was absolutely delicious and totally delightful!!

Brooks’ job within the security company would appear to be one of the easier ones, but could also be one of the toughest depending on if you were a people person or not. He is assigned to high profile cases as, the best word I can think of, as an escort, but he’s also a bodyguard. His boyfriend type of services are in the public eye while he provides security. When he’s assigned to Archer Bremen, a rockstar, he’s never been the boyfriend to a man, but it doesn’t deter him from doing his job, nor doing it professionally. What Brooks isn’t prepared for is the feelings Archer stirs up in him considering Brooks has only ever been with women and considered himself straight, but perhaps his outlook on his personal life just shifted. Brooks’ bi-wakening was written so well, I loved taking the journey with him.

Archer needs the help of Blackbridge Security when he blows up his life in a big way. He’s a famous rockstar that not only came out of the closet in a very public way, but blowing up his life has a lot more to do with the way he tried to shove himself back into it. Archer is a storm of a mess, but being around Brooks is when you see him calm and actually trying to be a better man. While he does push Brooks, a lot, he also is a sensitive soul, with a big heart and his vulnerability will break down just about anyone’s walls. He’s a bit manic, he is a soulful rockstar afterall, but his sweet soul really won me over and at the end of the day, these two together are just perfect.

This book travels down the timeline of multiple Blackbridge stories, while the tension and chemistry builds to a delicious level between Brooks and Archer. Dropping all of those teasers back into their appropriate spots made all the anticipation well worth the wait. I adored revisiting some of my favorite moments throughout the series while digging deeper into what all of those hints really were. This book is best enjoyed if the series has been read in order, but if you’ve missed a book or two, you could still jump into their love story and follow along with no problem.

Love is for other people, not for me.

At least that’s what I believed, until I met him.

Julian Hill.

The most famous rock star on the planet. A music god with untidy hair and the voice of an angel.

I’ll never be anything but out, and he has very good reasons to stay in the closet.

After all, every move he makes is dissected, critiqued, and posted on social media, so he just wants a little privacy.

I understand that. Truly.

But no one makes me feel the way he does, and I’m pretty sure he has feelings for me as well.

Which is inconvenient since his record label hired me to sue him.

I should’ve sorted things out before I kissed him.

Oops.

Ambiguous is a forbidden mm rock star romance about a fashion-forward singer who hates labels of all kinds (except for clothing), a dapper attorney who already has a (fake) boyfriend for a very good reason, and the possibility of love saving the day.

Review – A Chance Encounter by Nikki Ash

54779743. sx318

A Chance Encounter 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: April 21, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Single Mom/Surprise Pregnancy/Contemporary Romance

Author: Nikki Ash

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Wonderful, perfect, and contains the best book boyfriend ever!!

A Chance Encounter is one of those books that checks off every box for reading perfection! A story that flowed, has wonderful characters, low angst, amazing secondary characters, an adorable child who offers the perfect comedy relief, and chemistry through the roof. It’s the kind of book that you don’t want to end.

Sophia Davis has been burned by men her entire life, so when Easton Blackwood comes along and actually steps up her trust is nil. No matter how hard he tries to break down her walls, she really wants to believe, but trusting someone is hard. She’s a total firecracker and continually pushes him away and while that might be some of the attraction to him, it also entails so much more.

Easton is super swoony and basically the perfect man. He’s attentive, giving, and caring. If he didn’t live in the spotlight, where the paparazzi has access to his life and he lives on the road, he would be perfect for Sophia, but that trust I was talking about, the last man who broke her down…well, he shattered her by pushing her into the shadows and living life out of them is terrifying.

Everything from their meet-cute is charming and steamy and continues that way to the very end. I loved this book and was thrilled that the Blackwoods will continue with a new generation.

Synopsis:

What do you get when a single mom saves a musician from a killer bee?

Sophia

When I was eighteen, I fell in love, but he didn’t love me back. The day he found out about my pregnancy, I found out about his fiancée.

He warned if I ever told anyone, he would destroy me. So I kept the pregnancy a secret and disappeared.

Being scorned has left me jaded, but it’s also made me stronger. All my love and attention is focused on raising my daughter.

There isn’t room in our lives, or in my heart, for anyone else… until a chance encounter with Easton Blackwood changes everything.

Easton

Music has always been my one true love, but when a stunningly beautiful woman saves me from a killer bee, it just might be love at first sight.

One minute she’s slapping me with her flip-flop and the next we’re naked in my bed. With every kiss, every touch, I have no doubt Sophia could be the one, until she dashes from my bed without a trace.

After weeks of our time together replaying in my mind, she appears back in my life, with a confession that sends my world into a tailspin.

She thinks the bomb she’s dropped will send me running, but she’s wrong. The last guy might have done that, but I’ll fight for her, for our love, for our family. And I’ll stop at nothing to protect what’s mine.

(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: April 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: MM/Rockstar/Forbidden Romance

Author: Leslie McAdam

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This is the kind of book where I’m shouting, YES! over and over for all the monumental moments.

Julian Hill and Sam Stone are both beautiful people inside and out. Both men stood on morals of who they are, what they stand for and are proud of the men they portrayed in society. While Julian is an international rock star, Sam is more locally known within the community as the face of his grandfather’s political campaign supporting LGBTQ rights. While they each live a different life under the spotlight, I adored how they supported one another and brought out each others strengths and were there to lift up the other during their weaknesses.

Jules always come across as ambiguous, never stating what box he fit in, wearing whatever he desires regardless of gender conformity, and continually states his sexuality is a private matter. I LOVE him so much. I’ve said this very thing for years. I’ve personally never understood what someone’s orientation has to do with their job performance, or ability to help, or basically anything outside the bedroom. Julian is firm in this belief and never wavers, but his speech as to why is absolutely glorious.

When Sam first meets Jules it’s an adorkable meet cute, but begins their intense chemistry and work related friendship that turns into much more.

Sam Stone has always lived his life outside of the closet, a firm believer in standing up for LGBTQ rights and being the face for his grandfather’s campaign of those rights. Sam is organized, dislikes clutter and labels everything. Meeting and having feelings for Julian shouldn’t make sense, especially someone who lives their life without labels, but these two connect in a beautiful way and their story is magical.

Jules and Sam light up the pages from the heated time spent together before the clothes come off, to stolen kisses, to finally hitting the sheets. They are sweetly cute in getting to know one another before steaming it up and I loved every moment.

Ambiguous hit all the sweet spots, with the right amount of tension to make me bite my nails until everything worked out. Leslie McAdam knows how to build the tension while writing a wonderful plot.

Synopsis:

Review – Ripple Effect by J. Bengtsson

58991645. sy475

Ripple Effect
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 28, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Enemies to Lovers/Rockstar Romance

Author: J. Bengtsson

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Tap into every emotion for the top read of 2021! Ripple Effect is hands down the most emotional rollercoaster ride I’ve ever experienced while reading. Laughing, crying, so much tension I was a huge stress ball of anxiety, and then I was back to laughing through my tears while my heart was pounding through my chest. My emotional stability was all over the place and yet I couldn’t stop reading.

Dani Malone is a hotmess, crazy neighbor with rules galore and I loved her to pieces. She is the post-it note queen when it comes to passively-aggressively antagonizing her neighbor, Chad Woodcock. Only Chad is an alias for RJ Contreras, a former boyband mega star. Dani is clueless that she’s been living next door to a rockstar since Chad is covered under mountains of beard, shaggy hair and a sour attitude. These two are full of sassy attitude and hilarity as they volley back and forth with quick wits and lethal jabs and truthfully, I could have continued reading their enemies to lovers story for 500 more pages, but as the title of the book is appropriated….prepare for a ripple effect and it is a dozy.

Under duress, Dani and RJ go through a traumatic event unlike anything I’ve ever read. It ramped up my anxiety and tension to a level 50 on a scale of one to ten and I had to keep reminding myself that this was a romance book and that Bengtsson wouldn’t destroy my idea of a HEA.

Ripple Effect is emotional and beautiful, while still being funny and filled with tons of heart. It is truly one of the best books I’ve read in a long time and I’m so glad I was able to read it.

It’s about family, changing your outlook, loving your neighbor, loving yourself, and finding your inner strength even in the most dire of circumstances. There is so much more, but I don’t want to give everything away because it needs to be experienced first hand.

Don’t let this book fall through the cracks in your TBR, it is a must read!! Pick it up so you too can cry, laugh, and fall in love with this beautiful story.

Synopsis:

He’s the surly rocker in hiding.
She’s the fed up neighbor who wants him dead.

Enemies to lovers tale with an earth-shaking twist!

When his mega-famous boy band AnyDayNow breaks up, international pop star RJ Contreras strikes out on his own. But when his solo career flops, RJ retreats to a no-frills apartment where he can hide out from the world and lick his festering wounds.

But when the girl next door starts slipping ‘good neighbor’ contracts under his door and complaining about his behavior through strategically placed Post-it-Notes, RJ snaps out of his self-absorbed melancholy to wage war.

Nothing short of an act of nature could repair the relationship between these two strong-willed enemies. But guess what Fate has in store?

New Release – Next in Line by J. Bengtsson

Next In Line by J. Bengtsson is now live!



Quinn

Just six years old when my brother was snatched off the street, I grew up in the aftermath of tragedy. While other kids were happily playing in the sandbox, I was hiding under press conference podiums listening to my parents beg for Jake’s safe return.

People ask if I’m screwed up after what happened, and I never know how to respond. Life after the kidnapping is all I’ve ever known. Well, that and being the youngest brother to a rock star. Jake was the ultimate survivor. The prodigal son. My king.

But I’m not that worshipful kid anymore, and I’m tired of walking a step behind. I’ve got the talent. I’ve got the drive. And now I’m coming for Jake’s throne.

Jess
What to do with a runaway rock star in my passenger seat?

Jess of yore would’ve jumped at the chance. Hell, she’d already be in his lap by now. She was fearless and fun and sexy. She lived like there was no tomorrow… until tomorrow came calling and delivered her an ultimatum: repent or risk losing it all.

And so responsible Jess was born, the good girl who paid her rent and watered her plants and put others before herself. The new, improved version of myself represented stability and a roof overhead. Yet sometimes… sometimes I missed that reckless girl. Wild Jess. God, she’d been so fun.

And now Quinn was here, built like a god and asking me to play. One mindless afternoon of fun.
Surely I could spare that for a future rock legend. I could bring old Jess back for just one day.

What could possibly go wrong?

Review – Next In Line by J. Bengtsson

Next In Line; Cake #6
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: June 1, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Rock and Roll/Contemporary Romance

Author: J. Bengtsson

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Next in Line is different than what I was expecting, not different bad, it was way better!!

It’s been a couple of years since I read Cake, but I still remember Jake McAlister, he is hard to forget. Cake was one of those stories that sticks with you, and the characters never leave so of course I jumped at the chance to read about his baby brother, Quinn. I really wanted to know Quinn’s perspective on growing up under the shadow of his brother’s mega star, but also living in the aftermath of Jake’s kidnapping. These are both life altering experiences and I was fascinated to read how Quinn would handle the outcomes of such huge moments.

Next In Line did NOT DISAPPOINT in any way. It is a story that completely stands on its own. (Yes, Quinn it did!) You see, Quinn’s entire life he felt like he had to be better and outshine his big brother. That’s a quality I think a lot of younger siblings face in any normal family, but when your brother is a mega superstar it’s ten times harder to step out from under his huge shadow. Quinn constantly struggled to make his own mark no matter what he tried to do, especially when everyone just assumed he was riding the coattails of his famous brother. Quinn  desperately wanted to be a star of his own making, but rising to the top isn’t exactly easy…sometimes it’s all about being in the right place at the right time. Or meeting the right person. Quinn is stuck, obviously, under Jake’s shadow, but he’s self-deprecating a lot of the time about it so it makes the continual dig at his big brother palpable. Just when this would seem to get old, Quinn is actually coming to terms with a lot of his emotional baggage with the help of his special angel, Jess. Jake may be the world’s favorite rock star, but after this book, Quinn is my new favorite McAlister.

Jess is quite the firecracker. It’s great for her job, it adds that creative flair and gives her style that most days increases her tip jar. When a desperate, yet hot guy, jumps into her RYde share she never expected her fiery nature to attract his attention and eventually spark a Jesserella pandemonium that pretty much turned her world upside down.

Jess is strong, independent, and full of spirit, which helps carry her throughout the story. I love her character and how she’s lived her life on her own terms even with the hard circumstances she’s been given. Her deeply driven strength helps Quinn over and over, while at the same time his deep sense of familial commitment is highly attractive to her, but also what keeps her shying away. She’s got some secrets of her own that she doesn’t want to hurt Quinn while he’s reaching for the top. Quinn’s never met anyone like her, someone selfless and not looking for a free ride, basically someone like himself.  Jess and Quinn may be from completely opposite worlds, but they share such a similar background that their souls instantly recognized they are connected. One day is all it took, but honestly they didn’t need more than that to really know they had something special.

Their chemistry is instant and their banter is fun while being just the right amount of flirty. They both felt neglected growing up within their own families, but together, for the very first time, they feel seen. They are two halves of a whole and work better together than they do apart. This whole book was different than I was expecting, but also so much better than my expectations. I really loved visiting this family again. It was a great book!

Review – The Hate of Loving You by Maya Hughes

49692737. sy475

The Hate of Loving You; Falling #3 
(#3 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: May 6, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Sports/Rockstar/Second Chance Romance

Author: Maya Hughes

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

It’s here, it’s finally here!!! The Dare/Keyton and Bay conclusion is finally here!!

Unbreak my heart…anyone else hear this soulful Toni Braxton song in their head? No…just me? Okay…I’m so ready to have my broken heart fixed by this soulful story.

Maya Hughes has written the best trilogy of her career. I’m throwing that out there first. This couple has thrown me over the literary edge, stabbed me full of angsty feelings, and left me a blubbering mess over and over and yet I couldn’t wait to find out what happened to these two people who desperately needed their happily ever after! P.S. The Hate of Loving You is full of the aforementioned, but so darn worth reading every moment of it.

At the beginning of this book, Keyton and Bay are like two rusty cogs who are stuck in their pain and hurt, unmoving from where their past has left them. It’s soul crushing, truly soul crushing to watch them struggle. However, as the rust begins to drop off their cogs and their relationship moves forward, they discover that with the success of their careers spending time a relationship is nearly impossible. Is it really too late for them?

Finding any spare moment they can, between Keyton’s games and traveling, Bay’s studio time, promotions and tour schedule they relearn one another. It’s been a decade since Dare first heard Bay singing in her backyard and they’ve come a long way from those two teenagers, but are they really ready for anything more?

There are so many moments that highlight how perfect these two are together, showing growth for both Bay and Dare/Keyton. While I wanted to weep at the six years they had lost, it was also a time where they gained experiences as a young adult in their careers and who they spent time with, travelled with, etc… which really shapes them into who they have now become.

Some of the best moments in this story, aside from steamy times, were Fulton U pop up moments. All the interconnections were fantastic and I couldn’t have been happier with how the entire book wrapped up. Don’t wait, if you haven’t read the first past of this trilogy yet, start it now so when The Hate of Loving You comes out you will be ready.

Synopsis:

Six years ago, in the dead of night, I woke up to a cold bed and an even colder future without her.

I would’ve followed her anywhere and she left.

I thought I’d moved on and left all she meant to me behind. But a first love is never easy to forget. Even harder when I once felt our love is inevitable–inescapable. And I’ve been proven right once again.

One night brings us back together and derails our lives. We’re sent on a collision course with a future apart and even scarier–a future together. I’m back basking in the warm glow of her gaze and burning with the unquenchable fire of her touch.

We’ve walked this path before and our shattered hearts have been pieced back together. As easy as it would be to run again, I can’t stop wanting her.

This is our final chance to have what we’ve always wanted–each other. Or it’ll be our ruin.

The final book in the Fulton U universe sports romance, Falling trilogy.

Cover Reveal - 2021, New Releases

Cover Reveal – Say I’m the One by Siobhan Davis

From the USA Today bestselling author of Inseparable and When Forever Changes comes another emotional, angsty, new adult romance that will rip your heart apart before mending it again.

Say I’m the One, the first in the all-new All of Me Duet from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is coming April 30th and we have the gorgeous cover!

I’m head over heels in love with my best friend. Although, I can’t pinpoint exactly when Reeve Lancaster became my entire world.  Was it when we were little kids, practically brought up together, after Reeve’s mom died during childbirth and his dad subsequently fell apart? Or when I doodled his name in my school journal at age ten? Maybe it was when we became boyfriend and girlfriend at fourteen or when we shed our virginity at sixteen, pledging our forever?  I was there as his star ascended—like I’d always known it would—and there wasn’t a prouder person on the planet. As the only child of Hollywood’s golden couple, I’ve lived my life in the spotlight enough to know it wasn’t what I wanted for my future. But I sacrificed my own desires, because Reeve’s happiness meant everything to me. Until he crushed my heart into itty-bitty pieces, forcing me to fly halfway around the world just to escape the gut-wrenching pain. The opportunity to study at Trinity College Dublin came at the perfect moment, and I jumped at the chance without hesitation. If I’d known fate was meddling in my life, perhaps I would have chosen differently, but my future was cemented the instant I laid eyes on him. Dillon O’Donoghue was Reeve’s polar opposite in every way, and perhaps, that’s why I felt drawn to him. He was the dark to my light. The thorn in my side, irritating me with his cold disdain, wild recklessness, and a burning rage hidden deep inside him that spoke to a silent part within me. Yet Dillon showed me what it was like to truly live, opening my eyes to endless possibilities.  What happened next was inevitable, and I only have myself to blame. He warned me, and I knew my reprieve was temporary, because there is only so far I can run. Especially when fate hasn’t finished messing with me yet.

Review – The Sound of Temptation by Dylan Allen

54740940. sy475

The Sound of Temptation 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: March 29, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Second Chance Romance

Author: Dylan Allen

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An epic journey of life and love. Carter and Beth bring to life this story of heartache, mistakes, regret, and second chances where you meet the love of your life when you are too young to make the right choices, but at a point when emotions run high enough to cause lifelong damage. Can you really forgive and forget when a second chance comes along or is the past really better left in the past?

Carter meets Beth the summer before his career really takes off in the music business. Even though they talk about staying in touch, it’s before a lie implodes his life apart and destroys everything they built.  A decade passes before he confronts her and works up the nerve to talk to her again. However, a decade of pain has built up around Beth and life has broken her down by anyone who should have lifted her up. She no longer has time for empty promises or broken dreams.

Carter is a man full of grief, through much of this book. Being with Beth is truly when he feels much of anything. He’s willing to risk a lot to be with her, but it may be too late when he finally realizes what he wants.

Beth has been pushed down and alone for most of her life. The one time she hasn’t felt that way was when she was with Carter, but then he tore that from her and Beth was back to looking out for herself. Beth is broken when Carter returns to her life and trusting him again is a risk she isn’t sure she can take again. How much pain can one woman take in her life?

When you meet the greatest love of your life when you are young can you really make life decisions when life has other ideas already in store for you or can you find love again in second chances?

Synopsis:

The Sound of Temptation, an epic and emotional second chance forbidden romance from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Dylan Allen.

Unbelievably gorgeous, wildly talented, and on the cusp of stardom, Carter Bosch was the kind of man I’d never dared to dream of.
But the summer he showed up in my small town – city slick and full of promises –
He put stars in my eyes and hope in my heart.
He called me his muse and said we were meant to be.
And until the day he broke my heart, I believed him.
Ten years later, his reputation tarnished by scandal and personal tragedy, Carter’s back.
He begins a relentless pursuit to win me back, but those stars in my eyes have been replaced by flames.
And for a chance to claim my ticket to freedom, I made a deal with the devil that I dare not break.
But, a rock god fallen from grace is still a god,
And a woman with her walls up, is still a woman.
Soon, my foolish heart is torn between duty and desire.
When it finally falls, he stands ready to claim it.

Just when we think we can see forever, a dark secret is revealed that rips us apart.
Loving him is forbidden, but my heart can’t let him go.
Because Carter and I are meant to be.
And what’s meant to be will find a way.

Review – When the Storm Breaks by Emery Rose

54264834. sy475

When the Storm Breaks; Lost Stars #2 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: March 5, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Single Dad/Rock Star/Cowboy Romance

Author: Emery Rose

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Layers and layers that create tears and emotions and feelings…it’s what Emery Rose is the best at and as much as you want to despise her for it, I keep coming back for more. I totally love the angst and heartache and just overall happiness that I end up with by the end.

Brody is a character that has always felt broken. Never measuring up, never feeling wanted, and certainly never coming first in anyone’s life. He connects better with his horses than he does with people so it’s no wonder when Shiloh comes to stay on his farm he doesn’t see much beyond her initial stay. Brody is far from an optimist, especially when it comes to relationships, but something about Shiloh and the brokenness he sees inside her calls to him like no one has before.

Shiloh may be a rockstar, but living in the spotlight isn’t exactly conducive to making genuine friends. It doesn’t help that the few people who actually know the real her have actually taken advantage of her, breaking down her spirit over and over again. She needs to get away before she starts her long tour and Brody’s ranch is just the place to do it. She never expected to fall for the grumpy cowboy, but when it comes time to leave her rockstar life is even harder to return to than she expected.

These two people live on opposite sides of the same coin. Both have been broken down by people they loved, but they are now two people who live very different lives, one in the spotlight and another who lives in the wide open country. While they have been brought together by chance could they find a middle ground and make it work?

“Her voice was my favorite sound, and I didn’t think I’d ever tire of listening to it. It still reached deep inside and rattled my bones. Made my heart ache in a way I couldn’t explain. Nobody had ever touched me the way she had.” – Brody

Over and over my heart broke for Brody. While I read the first book and know Jude and Lila’s story and where Brody’s friendship came out with them, my heart aches even more knowing where his feelings were during that whole timeline. Brody constantly feels he’s never good enough, no matter what he’s doing, or where he is, or who he’s with. The rare exception is being with his son or with Shiloh, which is a first considering who she is to the world, but with him she’s just her.  So jumping into something more with a woman who could hurt him is risky and Brody is …ugh…gonna break you.

While Shiloh has her ups and downs in life as well, it’s Brody who truly captured my heart and broke it with Emery’s depthful writing. She has this way of bringing out feelings of being totally drained and filled up all at once. When the Storm Breaks feels representative of those emotions inside me, along with everything representative in the book, so have a few tissues handy.

 

Synopsis:

Our worlds never should have collided, but it seemed our paths were always destined to cross.

Brody McCallister was only supposed to be a means to an end. My golden ticket to get me closer to what I really needed—a way to make peace with what I’d done when I was eighteen, dirt poor, and left to fend for myself.

I only had six weeks in the middle of a hectic world tour to do it.
So the last thing I needed was to fall for a cocky cowboy. A walking contradiction with a charming grin, a dirty mouth, and a gift for healing wild and broken things.

His life was in Texas.
Mine was on the road.
He guarded his privacy fiercely.
I was constantly hounded by paparazzi.

Everyone warned me it could never work, that ultimately I’d be forced to choose—my music career or him.
I didn’t listen. I fell for him anyway.
Hook, line, and proverbial sinker.

But Brody was hiding secrets.
And when the storm finally broke, it destroyed everything in its wake … including us.

About ELLE GRECO

I write fiction about badass women (and the people they love).

Urban Fantasy lovers will know me as Karen Greco, author of the best-selling Hell’s Belle series. My Contemporary Romance books are written under Elle Greco.

While the genres are worlds apart, strong female characters are the chain that links all my worlds.

These women are magical. They wield wicked weapons. They play a mean drum solo. They fall in love. They rule the boardroom and the bedroom.

Whatever they do, they do it with swagger.

My storytelling career began when I forced everyone play “make believe” with me when I was a kid. That eventually morphed into banging out short stories on my mom’s old manual typewriter. As I got older, I graduated to penning bad poetry, then not terrible plays as a teenager. I studied playwright in college but my career took a detour and I ended up working in journalism and then entertainment publicity, which kept me busy for 20 or so years.

My “day job” has taken me from gritty rock clubs in The Bowery to glam red carpets during movie premieres and awards shows. My background working with talent (and the suits) in the industry has served me well with the LA Rock Star Romance series.

A few years ago, I decided to pursue my original passion and a few full-length novels later, here we are.

I love anything spooky and impossible to explain. If you love hanging out in cemeteries, the older the better, I’d totally go on a road trip with you.

I have two rescue dogs, a patient husband, and an awesome kid.

Read Kay’s Review: Lilac

Excerpt

“Be my girlfriend, Braxton Fawn.”

My head knew what to say. My heart was in my throat. I knew it was coming, and somehow, I was still unprepared. I wanted to say yes. I felt it on my tongue, overwhelmed by green apples. All I had to do was shut my mind away, and I’d be his. There was only one problem.

He was asking too much.

I couldn’t pretend his friends weren’t chasing me too.

I wanted them all equally, but I craved them for different reasons. Houston challenged me, Loren worshiped me, and Rich made me feel like I was worthy of redemption.

I didn’t want to give that up.

This tour would end, but the wreckage they will have left of my heart would be permanent. There was only one way I could survive. One way no one got hurt, and…it was impossible. Almost as hopeless as choosing.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I was turning page after page late into the night. This is a big book and unfortunately I had to put it down as the morning hours drew near, but I hated to stop! I loved reading the journey that not only Braxton was beginning with her life, but how each member of the band was adjusting to her stepping into their lives.

Braxton Fawn is a unique character. You’ll find that she is a great fit for each member of Bound and therein lies some of the underlying tension of this book. These three guys; Houston, Loren, and Jericho, are not exactly accepting of a new member of their band. They are barely talking to one another much less accepting a new band member or at the point of sharing a woman. They are riddled with issues and secrets, but I’ll leave that for you to discover, however, the big question is…could Braxton be the one that ties them all together or put the final nail in their friendship coffin?

Bound may have been started by three best friends, but it is barely being held together by the threads of the contract that they have to fulfill. When Braxton joins them for their current tour she is attracted to all three of them, they are rock gods afterall, but to have the attraction reciprocated was something she didn’t expect. Their pursuit of her attention becomes relentless and she isn’t sure if she is just the new toy they use to irritate one another or if their feelings are genuine. She does her best to keep them at arm’s length, but it becomes harder the more they dig under her skin and the more time they spend secluded on the tour bus.

Loren James, Bound’s bass player, has zero filter and the band member who is the most predictable to be unpredictable. He lets Braxton know right out of the gates that he wants her, but therein lies the problem. You don’t know if what is coming from his mouth is truth or complete BS. While he is the life of the party, he is also the one to instantly break your heart. I loved Loren’s boundless energy, zero filter and instant way he jumped into any situation, but there were times I also wanted to kick him in the balls. He is a diva, funny as he**, but watch your heart, Lo may just steal it.

Jericho Noble comes across as this quiet, sweet guy, but he’s a man who unleashes his intense anger and secrets upon his drums. That intensity transfers into the bedroom, so remember the saying…watch out for the quiet ones. When Braxton joins the mix he uses his quiet friendship to bring her quickly to his side, but Rich’s intensity may just have the power to slay her heart and yours.

Houston Morrow may be the leader and complete control freak of the group, but his brooding, ultra controlling self watches everything and Braxton doesn’t escape his scrutiny. Every group needs someone to take the heat, round up the herd of cats so to say, and thankfully this group has Houston. As much as my feelings wavered throughout the story regarding him, I think I grew to love and respect Houston the most.

What I loved about Lilac is that it focused on their ever evolving relationship. Their emotions and their struggle of how to navigate their changing foursome was ever present to what was going on around them. Sharing was new and they didn’t jump in with high expectations and hormones flying. They were very aware that they lived in the public eye and that there were lots of people involved. Yes, the story was hot, it was everything you’d want in a RH, but it was also realistic in dealing with the aftermath when the sheets cooled down and life set in.

New Release – Power Couple by Laramie Briscoe

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Power Couple
Series: Nashvegas #1
Author: Laramie Briscoe
Genre: Rockstar Romance
Release Date: November 29, 2020
BLURB

Everett James Thompson 

I’ve been in the spotlight since I was born, thanks to my famous parents. Reaper and Harmony have been the gold standard when it comes to celebrity love stories. It’s hard to be in that shadow, to live up to that precedent. 

Which is why I stopped trying when my band, Grey Skies hit the big time. 

But when I go to Vegas to support my Mom, in her new residency, I have absolutely no idea I’ll leave Vegas with a new pop-star wife. 

Brianna Jenkins 

As one of the top pop-stars in the world right now, I don’t have time for anything. Much less love, or even a night out. 

When my best friend surprises me with tickets to the sold-out Harmony Stewart show in Vegas on my one off weekend of the month, I’m beyond excited. Especially when we find out our seats are next to her family. Harboring a crush on her oldest son added with a few more drinks than I normally have equals consequences neither one of us bargained for. 

The next morning, I’m no longer Brianna Jenkins, pop star. 

I’m Brianna Thompson, member of the new power couple, about to take the world by storm. 

Whether I want to, or not.

Blurb:
A fiery, passionate MM forbidden romance novel from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…

Ever hear the story about the bodyguard who falls for the rock star?

Yeah, it never ends well.

Each day I remind myself that it’s my job to protect Stone. And nowhere in the job description does it say I should lust after the charismatic, charming man.

Especially since we’re opposites.

But every night I spend with him the dangerous, off-limits attraction grows more intense.

Until one night in a limo when we combust.

One time only will have to be enough. One scorching, forbidden night.

Because the mistakes from the past are chasing me. And if I give in again, I’ll lose everything.

But sometimes you grab hold of the desire. And other times, the desire takes hold of you.

No matter the cost.

Each day I remind myself that it’s my job to protect Stone. And nowhere in the job description does it say I should lust after the charismatic, charming man.

Especially since we’re opposites.

But every night I spend with him the dangerous, off-limits attraction grows more intense.

Until one night in a limo when we combust.

One time only will have to be enough. One scorching, forbidden night.

Because the mistakes from the past are chasing me. And if I give in again, I’ll lose everything.

But sometimes you grab hold of the desire. And other times, the desire takes hold of you.

No matter the cost.

EXCERPT

“Why does this feel so right?” She broke the kiss, blinking up at me with her big honey eyes.
“Because maybe it is. Maybe we just both have to take a chance.”
“I can’t do it again. I can’t watch someone I…” She stopped herself, letting out a heavy sigh. Part of me was relieved. I didn’t want to ever hear those words. “I’ll never be the most important thing in your life. I deserve that, Levi. I deserve to come first.”
Her honesty shook me to the core. Phoebe had scars. The deep kind. The kind I knew I couldn’t fix. The kind I knew I would only rip open if I pursued this thing with her.
But I couldn’t walk away.
I couldn’t do it.
So long as she was on tour with us, we would continue to go around in circles until one of us cracked. Or I fucked things up for good.
Touching my head to hers, I breathed her in. “I’m not a good guy, Bee, but I’d try to be good for you.”
A shiver ran through her as she swayed gently. She was drunk. Maybe more than I’d first thought.
“Come on,” I said, guiding her toward the bed. “You should get some sleep.”
Phoebe began stripping out of her clothes with haste, as if they were suffocating her. “Stupid shirt,” she groaned as she tried to yank it over her head. 
I stood back, smothering the laughter rumbling in my chest. “Need some help?”
Her eyes snapped to mine, glittering in the dark. “I can manage.”
After a couple more failed attempts, I crouched down and nudged her hands away.  “Here, let me.” My fingers brushed her bare skin, and she whimpered again. 
My dick strained against my jeans, desperate to feel her again. But the next time I was inside her, I wanted Phoebe to know exactly who she was fucking. 
I pulled back the cover. “In you go.”
“I can’t believe this happening,” she mumbled. “How embarrassing.” Phoebe buried her face in the pillow.
I made quick work of stripping down to my boxers and climbed in bed beside her. She tried to roll away, putting as much space between us as possible.
But fuck that.
I hooked my arm around Phoebe’s waist and pulled her back against my chest. 
“Levi, we can’t snuggle…”
“Why the fuck not?” I tangled my legs with hers, fighting the urge to press my hard length right up against her ass.
“Because I’m your assistant and you’re…” She let out a little huff of frustration.
“It’s okay, honeybee,” the nickname rolled off my tongue as easy as breathing, “you can say it. I’m the best sex you’ve ever had.” I breathed against the shell of her ear.
Her sweet laughter filled the small room. “You’re definitely the biggest ego I’ve ever had.”

AUTHOR BIO

Author of over thirty mature young adult and new adult novels, L A is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.

Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find L A immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.
