Get it on All Platforms

A sexy standalone in the fan-favorite Lost Harbor, Alaska series

After a heartbreaking loss, Lulu Spencer-Bennington is on a mission to live her life to the fullest. Dancing her way around the world on a cruise ship is a great start. Hiding in a small Alaska town, staying off a criminal’s radar, probably wasn’t what her beloved mum had in mind. Fortunately, she’s stumbled across a sexy fisherman willing to help. So maybe he doesn’t quite know what he’s in for…but Lulu’s hoping to be out of town before he finds out.

Tristan Del Rey has always been a natural leader—but a recent fishing accident has sent his confidence reeling. He’s no hero, no matter what his fellow Lost Harbor fishermen think. Even so, he can’t turn away the funny, feisty dancer he finds on his boat. He’s determined to protect her no matter what it costs him. As for anything more personal, the best he can offer is some temporary fun. That doesn’t stop the luscious, long-legged Lulu from high-kicking him right in the heart.

Between a dangerous enemy, family drama and the fast-approaching winter, Tristan and Lulu may find their hearts’ desires where they least expect it…starting with a first kiss before frost.

Blog Tour – Savage Hearts by J.T. Geissinger

Savage Hearts, the highly-anticipated third standalone in the Queens & Monsters mafia romance series by JT Geissinger is available now!

Savage (adjective):
1) Not domesticated; wild and untamed
2) A brutal or vicious person
3) Malek Antonov

When my older sister calls out of the blue to announce she’s getting married, it’s a shock. She’s
not the settling-down kind, and we haven’t spoken in almost three years.
Even more of a shock? Sloane wants me to visit her and meet her new fiancé. Curious, I decide
to take her up on the offer.
I should’ve known something was wrong when she wouldn’t tell me where I’d be going. I
should’ve known things were odd when she sent a private jet to pick me up. But there’s no way
in hell I could’ve ever guessed what would happen when I finally meet her fiancé.
Declan O’Donnell.
Head of the Irish Mob.
Target of a savage Bratva assassin who wants revenge for the murder of his brother.
Now, I’m thousands of miles from home, I’m smack in the middle of a mafia war, and I’ve got a
Russian assassin who’s decided he likes the looks of me.
They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
They never met Malek Antonov.

Excerpt

“Yeah. Oh—can I ask you a favor? Will you please not hurt him? Kieran, either. He’s the other bodyguard. The bigger one. They’re both really nice.”
Malek stares at me in disbelief.
“Sorry. Is that asking too much? It’s just that I’d never get over it if they got hurt because of me. They’re only trying to do their jobs.”
After a moment, he says angrily, “You know who I am. You know what I do. Correct?”
“Yes. I’ve been filled in on the particulars.”
“And you’re lying there with my hand around your neck asking me not to hurt your bodyguards.”
He says it like my sanity is in question.
“I know it’s maybe a little unorthodox.”
“No,” he says flatly.
“Please?”
He growls, “What the fuck is wrong with you?”
“There’s no need to get testy.”
“Testy?”
“I’m just saying. You don’t have to get all mad about it.”
Furious again, he glares at me, grinding his jaw and probably calculating how much pressure it will take to snap the brittle bird bones in my neck.
Before he does, I say, “I also want to thank you for the rose you left me. That was really nice. I’ve never had a man bring me flowers before. I know it was only the one, and also you thought I was a captive prostitute at the time, but still. It was thoughtful. So thank you.”
He stares at me with an expression somewhere between confusion and amazement, with a healthy dose of disgust on the side.
“Now is probably a good time to remind you that I’m still the same person you left the rose for. So if you did kill me, you’d be killing her, too. Just a thought.”
“Are you on drugs?”
“Not at the moment, no. Why, do you have any?”
“There’s something wrong with you. Mentally. Right?”
That makes me laugh. “Oh, totally. I’ve got more than a few screws loose. At least that’s what my dad tells me. But he’s super uptight, zero imagination, so his opinion doesn’t really count. Not that he’s wrong, because he isn’t, but normies shouldn’t judge creatives. They just have no idea how we’re wired. Why are you looking at me like that?”
“I’ve never had a conversation with an insane person before.”
“Very funny.”
“It wasn’t a joke.”
“Ouch.”
We stare at each other in silence. His hostile, mine hopeful. He still hasn’t murdered me, so things are looking up.
“Malek?”
“What.” He says it flatly. With dread.
“Thank you for not killing me.”
He says emphatically, “Don’t thank me yet.”
“You’re still deciding?”
“If only to get you to shut up, yes.”
“In that case…” I make a zipper motion across my lips.
He watches with outrage, astonishment, and absolute disbelief.
“Actually, before I shut up, I also want to say that it was really sweet that you tried to save me from being a sex worker. I mean, what a gentleman! A gentleman killer who gives strangers big wads of cash in restrooms. You’re quite the puzzle, Mr. Ghost. Or is it just Ghost? I’m never sure how the nickname thing works, except between me and my sister, but that doesn’t count because my whole family is a little weird. I’ll just call you Malek, if that’s all right. Or Mal for short, since we’re such buds now, what with you breaking into my various bedrooms for midnight visits and all. Okay, I’m shutting up now. Here I go.”
I press my lips together and gaze up at him, watching him struggle with dueling urges to cut off my air supply or break something over my head.
Maybe he’s right about me being insane, because rather than terrifying, I find his indecision understandable.
He’s not the first man I’ve driven to the brink of murder. He’s just the most capable of actually going through with it.
“Oh, one more thing—”
“I know a way to keep that mouth quiet,” he snaps.
Then he kisses me.

Blog Tour – Head Over Hooves by Erin Nicholas

Head Over Hooves, a small town, holiday fling rom com from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available today!

You know in movies where the big city girl lands in a small town for the holidays and falls for the hunky guy who saves Christmas?

This isn’t that story.

But this guy does look fantastic in flannel. And out of flannel…

Finding true love with his one-and-only soul mate? Drew Ryan’s given up on that.

But a hot holiday fling in Louisiana, far from his responsibilities and good guy image back home, is now on the top of his list for Santa.

So when he’s knocked on his ass—literally—by a Christmas elf who’s stealing a sleigh full of gifts and using his reindeer to commit the crime, he definitely doesn’t expect to fall head over heels.

This holiday couldn’t get any worse for Rory Robins.

First, her hair wasn’t supposed to turn green. It’s not even Christmas green.

And the elf costume wasn’t supposed to be two sizes too small.

And her con-man father wasn’t supposed to show up and go all real-life-Grinch on her beloved new hometown.

And she definitely wasn’t supposed to run into anyone while trying to fix the problem. Especially not the hunky guy who already seems too good to be true.

But he does have a way of making her “cocoa” even hotter and a whole lot sweeter…

Still, he lives in Iowa. The only good thing her father ever gave her was a healthy distrust of men who are never around. She’s not doing a long-distance thing.

This little fling is only going to last as long as the temporary color of her hair.

Only nothing seems to be fading. And she might be asking Santa for just one more thing…

Review – Savage Hearts by JT Geissinger

57101804

Savage Hearts; Queens and Monsters #3 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: November 19, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romcom/Mafia Romance

Author: J.T. Geissinger

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Dark and steamy while filled with laughter, this is totally my kink…yessssss! Savage Hearts is mafia romance with a humorous twist. It’s funny from beginning to end and filled with delicious men the entire way.

Oh my gosh Riley is funny. I snickered through so many chapters, okay, every chapter Riley appeared in, especially with her inner thoughts, but seriously, this is a mafia romance front and center, but I love how Geissinger weaves so much comedy through her stories. It’s truly my favorite thing.

Riley gets a call from her estranged sister, Sloane who is getting married to Declan O’Donnell (two characters front and center from her last book). These two sisters are snarky 1000% and while they are funny together, just wait until Riley gets her eyes set upon Malek Antonov. I don’t think this girl takes anything in her life seriously and I love her more for it.

Malek is an assassin for the Russian Bratva and he’s set his sights on taking out Declan. He gets a tad distracted by Riley and considering his job normally involves murder Mal ends up padding his resume with a few extra job skills by the time he’s back in Russia.

Every chapter in Savage Hearts is funny and this couple has a unique beginning for sure. I’d also say that even if the first books in this series haven’t been read there is enough information added to catch up without being lost.

Synopsis:

Savage (adjective):
1) Not domesticated; wild and untamed
2) A brutal or vicious person
3) Malek Antonov

When my older sister calls out of the blue to announce she’s getting married, it’s a shock. She’s not the settling-down kind, and we haven’t spoken in almost three years.

Even more of a shock? Sloane wants me to visit her and meet her new fiancé. Curious, I decide to take her up on the offer.

I should’ve known something was wrong when she wouldn’t tell me where I’d be going. I should’ve known things were odd when she sent a private jet to pick me up. But there’s no way in hell I could’ve ever guessed what would happen when I finally meet her fiancé.

Declan O’Donnell.
Head of the Irish Mob.
Target of a savage Bratva assassin who wants revenge for the murder of his brother.

Now, I’m thousands of miles from home, I’m smack in the middle of a mafia war, and I’ve got a Russian assassin who’s decided he likes the looks of me.

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
They never met Malek Antonov.

Author’s Note
This book features Sloane’s little sister, Riley, and Malek, the Russian assassin who wants revenge on Declan for killing his brother, Mikhail, in Carnal Urges. They’re both new characters. There will be appearances from everyone in the two prior books, including Kage/Nat, Sloane/Declan, and your favorite side characters.

Diego’s fate remains undetermined. He’s in Savage Hearts as well, but I’m not sure if I’ll give him his own book or not.

Excerpt

This whole day made me feel super prickly, but I still went with it. Unfortunately, I had no say in this, since I had lost a bet.

Then there was Trinity and my parents’ wrath to think about. And the fact Bear deserved a mother who didn’t look like she practiced the most ancient profession in the world.

Also, privately, I could admit I really, really liked the Anthropologie dresses. 

“I think I’m starting to get a feel of what you’re into,” Cruz said when we got out of the store, which by the way, smelled like a new car and someone’s upscale bathroom.

I ignored his observation. I already felt like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman without being told I was on the cusp of self-discovery and inner transformation.

Next, we went to Free People, where I grabbed a few pairs of pants and some casual shirts and jackets. Then we went to a bohemian boutique, something small and not too pricey, and Cruz splurged on two pairs of sandals for me—both orthopedic but surprisingly not hideous—and a little purse that didn’t look like a tie-dyed squirrel. 

I didn’t thank him one time during the entire shopping trip, careful to remind him that it was his idea, not mine.

Finally, around two in the afternoon, when I was ready for my lunch (more like in danger of eating my own arm), he stopped in front of Prada.

He jerked his chin inside. “Ladies first.” 

“Are you crazy?” I glared at him. “I’m not really going to let you buy me anything from there.”

I knew I’d joked about it the other day, but I also joked about having Benicio del Toro’s babies, and I sure as heck was closed for business. 

“It’s an outlet.”

“It’s outrageous,” I countered. “I don’t care how much money someone has, a five hundred dollar scarf is excessive.”

“Quality costs.”

“Say that to my Kmart shoes. They’ve been servin’ me well for three years and counting. Even when I work double shifts.” I was surprised my feet didn’t slap my face for lying.

“I try not to converse with inanimate objects as a general rule. Why do you even care? It’s my money. I get to decide what I want to spend it on.”

“Why would you want to spend it on a semi-stranger you don’t even like?”

“This semi-stranger I don’t even like is about to become my family. Besides, I’m a shitty tipper.”

We were blocking the entrance to Prada, but that was all right, because no one but us seemed irrational enough to wander in.

There was also a guard at the entrance. A flipping guard. It made me want to throw up. I would never, ever walk into a store where some people might not feel welcome.

People like my mom.

Or like me, for that matter. 

“Ugh, don’t remind me.” I thumbed my nose at him, adamant to put up a fight. “I’d hate to be associated with you. You may ruin my reputation.” 

“Your reputation’s in the shitter,” he reminded me kindly.

“Yeah, well, maybe it’ll find your kissing technique there, since it seems to be in the same destination. What the hell was that about yesterday?”

Classic aversion.

I was a master of misdirection. 

“You enjoyed it,” he said calmly. 

“Did not.”

“Did, too.”

Lord, I had.

And not only had I enjoyed it, but the fact that it had been sweet and intimate and not filthy and carnal had completely disarmed me. I still felt my pulse against my lips. Both pairs.

Mental note number one hundred and sixty: Charge. That. Vibrator.

Review – Head Over Hooves by Erin Nicholas

58878861. sy475

Head Over Hooves; Boys of the Bayou Gone Wild #5 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: November 16, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Holiday/Small Town Romance/Romantic Comedy

Author: Erin Nicholas

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Sweet, funny and with the right splash of naughty sprinkled in for holiday perfection!

Erin, Erin, Erin…will I ever think of chocolate sauce, candy cane stockings, and a santa hat without blushing? Drew F-ing Ryan is the quenticental nice guy with a scrumptious naughty side and I’m adding him to my wish list this Christmas!!

Drew has finally found his perfect match (big, happy sigh from Oliver), but what does that mean when she lives in Louisiana and his life is in Iowa?

Drew Ryan is from the tiny town of Appleby, IA and he is known to everyone as the nice guy. The guy to lend a helping hand. The guy who repeatedly gets friendzoned, even by Ollie’s Piper (Okay, I’ll let that go).

Drew is visiting his friends in Louisiana with a couple of his reindeer for the Christmas petting zoo and what happens to catch his eye barely moments when he steps into town?  A gorgeous elf, in a body hugging dress with a head of green hair and a potty mouth to boot. Drew is intrigued more than he cares to admit, especially when they share a kiss barely moments after meeting Rory.

Rory is a bit of a hot mess, a magnet for a man like Drew who always finds himself lending a helping hand, but Rory is a woman who likes to take care of things herself. While Drew’s not there to find love, or add to his list of friendzoned ladies. He’s there for a vacation, deliver his reindeer, and perhaps have a hot fling. He doesn’t need to engage with a girl like Rory, but something definitely draws him back over and over again. Will she allow Drew to help or just scratch that holiday itch? Don’t start packing his bags quite yet, Ollie, LOL!

All of the Laundry family gather round for this adorable holiday treat, with the perfect naughty moments. Once again Erin Nicholas gave readers what we needed to connect with family and enjoy a bit of holiday magic.

Synopsis:

You know in movies where the big city girl lands in a small town for the holidays and falls for the hunky guy who saves Christmas?
This isn’t that story.
But this guy does look fantastic in flannel. And out of flannel…

Finding true love with his one-and-only soul mate? Drew Ryan’s given up on that.

But a hot holiday fling in Louisiana, far from his responsibilities and good guy image back home, is now on the top of his list for Santa.

So when he’s knocked on his ass—literally—by a Christmas elf who’s stealing a sleigh full of gifts and using his reindeer to commit the crime, he definitely doesn’t expect to fall head over heels.

This holiday couldn’t get any worse for Rory Robins.

First, her hair wasn’t supposed to turn green. It’s not even Christmas green.

And the elf costume wasn’t supposed to be two sizes too small.

And her con-man father wasn’t supposed to show up and go all real-life-Grinch on her beloved new hometown.

And she definitely wasn’t supposed to run into anyone while trying to fix the problem. Especially not the hunky guy who already seems too good to be true.

But he does have a way of making her “cocoa” even hotter and a whole lot sweeter…

Still, he lives in Iowa. The only good thing her father ever gave her was a healthy distrust of men who are never around. She’s not doing a long-distance thing.

This little fling is only going to last as long as the temporary color of her hair.

Only nothing seems to be fading. And she might be asking Santa for just one more thing…

Blog Tour- Jingle Bell Beard by Julie Kriss

Jingle Bell Beard by Julie Kriss is now live!

  

Jingle Bell Beard by Julie Kriss:

My to do list:
Revive my crashed PR career.
Turn around the Kringle family business by Christmas.
Convince my ex-boyfriend, NHL legend Matt “the Mountain” Kringle, to help me, even though I broke his heart when we were seventeen.
Easy, right?

Matt is huge, he’s hot, and he’s the grumpiest player in the league. I’ll have to brave his bad attitude and his sexy beard if I want him to help bail out the family business and put my career back on track. I’ll also have to try to forget – again – what an amazing kisser he is.

None of it is going to be easy. Not when Matt’s arrival in town leads to the Airport Incident and the Candy Cane Scandal – talk about embarrassing. But as Matt and I navigate disaster after disaster together, I’ll have to get over the fact that I never got over him. And that love with Matt is a game I just might want to play.

New Release – Puck Shy by Teagan Hunter

Puck Shy by Teagan Hunter is now live!

I’m having the definition of a bad year.

Game Six loss costing my team the Cup? Check.
Getting arrested and ruining my image? Check.
Almost getting run over after my car breaks down? Oh, look–a hat trick.

My contract is up with the Carolina Comets this year, and I need to get it together if I want to stay with the team.

I need relaxation, not a relationship.

But when I’m scrolling on a dating app and stumble across the pretty girl who almost ran me over, I know I can’t let her walk away this time.

Harper is funny, smart, and doesn’t care about hockey.

I’m not supposed to be focusing on anything other than my career, yet I can’t get Harper off my mind.

I know I shouldn’t fall for her…but I think I already have.

Review – Puck Shy by Teagan Hunter

58616056. sy475

Puck Shy; Carolina Comets #1 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 28, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy/Sports Romance

Author: Teagan Hunter

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Puck Shy was totally different than I was expecting, it was better!! Yes, it’s a sports romance, but it also contains geeky flirting, a fun road trip, lots of classic horror movie reference banter (that is perfect for the upcoming holiday), and steamy moments that made my cheeks flame bright!

This was my first Teagan Hunter book and I will be coming back again after this pleasant surprise.

Collin Wright has had a run of bad luck. It’s been worse than bad luck, he’s been in the wrong place at the wrong time kind of bad luck, but when his car breaks down in the middle of literally nowhere, his luck either may have changed for the better when he almost gets hit flagging down the only driver he’s seen for miles, or maybe his bad luck is really about to kill him this time. He is willing to take his chances by getting in her car.

Harper isn’t in the habit of picking up strangers, seriously, what woman in her right mind is, but something about Collin says he’s not about to murder her. Hopefully. Their meet cute may not be typical, or normally safe, but it is full of great banter, that leads down the path of more.

More what?

More fantastically witty banter between Collin and Harper to begin with. These two would normally seem like oil and water, but somehow they fit together perfectly. Harper may just be the good luck charm to Collin’s run of bad luck, but more than that he brings her to life. Harper may have been just existing before running into Collin, but these two rejuvenate one another. That is love in a nutshell.

Wait…we are not supposed to say the L word out loud around these two, but seriously, this book is fun and sweet and I really enjoyed the escape.

Puck Shy was a pleasant surprise. I expected the sports aspect of it, but it also held a ton of heart and a lot of laughs. This book was a very enjoyable read. I can’t wait to return.

PUCK SHY is a standalone hockey romantic comedy. It’s good, low angst fun with some hot hockey players.

But when they need to help their father turn the family business around, they have no choice. Love is crashing the holiday this year.

Jingle Bell Beard by Julie Kriss: Matt is the grumpiest NHL player in the league, and nothing can make him come home – except the girl who broke up with him in high school, who needs him to beef up her PR campaign. Maybe he needs her to warm up his cold heart.

What’s a girl to do when her celebrity crush needs her to be his fake girlfriend?

Sealed With a Kiss, an all-new opposites attract romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available now!

Keep her damned feelings to herself, of course.
Child TV star turned adult wallflower Naomi LeClaire has vowed never to return to the spotlight.
But when she’s stuck in a storm with Donovan Foster, the hot, charming, wild-life rescuing internet sensation, and she finally gives in and kisses him…and a few articles of clothing end up on the floor…suddenly her simple, quiet life is tossed upside down.

Especially after the paparazzi catches a heat-of-the-moment kiss. Now everyone assumes she’s his girlfriend and, when she realizes that’s the best way to keep Donovan out of trouble, Naomi agrees to play along. Even though it puts her center stage with her private life in very public view. Again.

They’re a whirlwind of opposites-attract chemistry the fans love, but they’ll surely blow over faster than a Gulf Coast hurricane. As long as they can keep straight what’s real and what’s just a once-in-a-lifetime fantasy.

Review – Neanderthal by Avery Flynn

57623350. sy475

Neanderthal; Last Man Standing #2 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 25, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy

Author: Avery Flynn

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This second book in the Last Man Standing series is my absolute favorite! Avery Flynn is known for her adorable humor mixed with smexy good times, Neanderthal is all that mixed with Legos, smart grunts, and southern sass.

Griff Beckett is the quiet cousin, known more for grunting or one word responses than he is for his deep conversation skills. That doesn’t mean he isn’t extremely intelligent. He usually has several projects in the works or fires to put out at work and to relax he likes to assemble 3000 piece lego sets. That’s to relax! The man’s mind is constantly on the go, but when he first heard Kinsey’s voice, or more importantly when he heard her solve multiple issues all at the same time, Griff instantly fell in love.

When Kinsey Dalton meets Griff, she’s stuck by how attractive he is, but then he says the one thing she dislikes. He puts her in a box just like everyone else and dismisses her based on her looks. She may be pretty and blonde, but she has a brain in her head, however, it doesn’t take long to notice that Griff may be sitting in his own box. He’s smarter than he allows people to believe. There is something there and she likes the gruff man, there is only one other problem. Her fake fiancé, Todd. Now, she just needs to kill him off, maybe her Meemaw has some ideas on how to go about that.

These two are adorable, brainy, quirky, and just darn likeable. Griff may find himself at a loss for words, but Kinsey understands him better than anyone right out of the gate. That’s destined love right there. He also finds her brain the most attractive feature on her, which is super hot. These two have wicked chemistry, but have a lot of roadblocks to finagle making this romcom just too cute. It’s a big win for Avery Flynn in my book.

Synopsis:

So I may be in the Last Single Man Standing competition with my cousins, but five minutes around Kinsey was all it took to take myself out. Who cares about bragging rights when you’ve just found the woman you’re going to marry? Sure, she may work for my biggest competitor. Sure, she’s not dating right now. Sure, she’s my sister’s best friend and I’ve been sworn off her. But somehow she agrees to go on six fake dates to help me save face in this competition.

BLURB

An actor, a model, and a younger man walk into a therapist’s office… They’re all Dylan Brodie. It’s only funny if you aren’t the single mom therapist he can’t stop flirting with.

Dear Mr. Brodie,

I hope this email finds you well.

Your well-being and personal growth are of the utmost importance to me, as a therapist.

As such, I have decided it is in your best interest to continue individual therapy with another practitioner.

This is due to the potential for boundaries being crossed between us.

Attached is a list of colleagues I would recommend for you.

Sincerely,

Scarlett Shepard, MS, MFT

Dear Scarlett,

Cool.

Consider our sessions terminated.

Now I can tell you how beautiful you are and how attracted I am to you.

Let’s start crossing boundaries over dinner tonight.

You’ll say it would be unethical, and I’ll point out that we’ve only had a few sessions.

You’ll cite the age difference, and I’ll tell you how hot it is that you’re six years older than me.

You’ll say you’re a mom, and I’ll remind you that I think your son is awesome.

We don’t have to discuss my former attachments to former co-stars ever again.

This is due to the fact that clearly my only personality issue is that I’m irresistible.

Yours in well-being and personal growth,

Dylan Brodie, W.M.H.T.A.T.Y.E.H. (Way More Handsome and Talented Actor Than Your Ex-Husband)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing from a Canadian university and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn’t allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

New Release – Attachment Theory by Kayley Loring

Attachment Theory by Kayley Loring is now live!

BLURB

An actor, a model, and a younger man walk into a therapist’s office… They’re all Dylan Brodie. It’s only funny if you aren’t the single mom therapist he can’t stop flirting with.

Dear Mr. Brodie,

I hope this email finds you well.

Your well-being and personal growth are of the utmost importance to me, as a therapist.

As such, I have decided it is in your best interest to continue individual therapy with another practitioner.

This is due to the potential for boundaries being crossed between us.

Attached is a list of colleagues I would recommend for you.

Sincerely,

Scarlett Shepard, MS, MFT

Dear Scarlett,

Cool.

Consider our sessions terminated.

Now I can tell you how beautiful you are and how attracted I am to you.

Let’s start crossing boundaries over dinner tonight.

You’ll say it would be unethical, and I’ll point out that we’ve only had a few sessions.

You’ll cite the age difference, and I’ll tell you how hot it is that you’re six years older than me.

You’ll say you’re a mom, and I’ll remind you that I think your son is awesome.

We don’t have to discuss my former attachments to former co-stars ever again.

This is due to the fact that clearly my only personality issue is that I’m irresistible.

Yours in well-being and personal growth,

Dylan Brodie, W.M.H.T.A.T.Y.E.H. (Way More Handsome and Talented Actor Than Your Ex-Husband)

Multicast duet-style audiobook will release not long after the kindle version. Performed by Zachary Webber and Emily Woo Zeller, featuring Teddy Hamilton, Jason Clarke, Mackenzie Cartwright, Connor Crais and Emma Wilder.

Read Kay’s Review: Attachment Theory

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing from a Canadian university and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn’t allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

Review – Attachment Theory by Kayley Loring

58740490. sy475

Attachment Theory; The Brodie Brothers #2 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 7, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy

Author: Kayley Loring

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Grinning, giggling, smiling, snorting, let me count ALL the ways that Kayley had me enjoying Attachment Theory. I can guarantee that every positive and happy emotion flew out of my mouth and showed on my face while reading, it was absolutely delightful.

Attachment Theory is fun, light hearted, and contains one of Kayley’s swooniest hero’s to date. It was easy to get attached to Dylan Brodie, although I admit I fall pretty easy for ALL of Loring’s leading men, but Dylan – by far – was the dreamiest and easiest one to fall for.

Dylan Brodie is a man who loves love. I’m not talking about in the sheets, nakey time love, although he is a master at that as well (didn’t I mention he’s full-total swoon worthy). No, Dylan is a relationship guy. He is a guy who likes to be needed, a guy who likes affection, and who wants purpose with the girl he’s dating. To top off his superior love skills, Dylan also likes his family, even when they pick on him, he’s laid back, easy going, and just extremely likeable. Dylan Brodie is the total package and I totally adored him 10,000%, except for one teeny tiny flaw. He’s a bit of a serial dater, and his relationships only last as long as his acting jobs do. Dylan has a habit of falling for his leading co-star, but once you get to know Dylan, I think that flaw might be based more on the shallowness of the women he dates and not due to Dylan himself. I could be biased, but I’ll stand by my decision.

Scarlett Shephard is kind of a hotmess who is also extremely likable. She’s a single mom with the most adorable little boy, Noah. While Scarlett is just trying to keep her life together and Noah on track to do his homework, her son unknowingly befriends Dylan when Dylan visits Noah’s school for career day. They bond over a lost kitten, whom they name Mr. Noodles, and since Dylan is basically a child himself their friendship is born and Mr. Noodles comes home to live with Dylan. Scarlett unknowingly becomes Dylan’s therapist, is fate playing her hand with the Shephard family? I believe so. I love fate. Dylan is looking to solve his serial relationship problems, but it’s hard to help the gorgeous man when they can barely contain their attraction to one another, which is a huge ethical problem for Scarlett. Can the issue be solved if Dylan finds another therapist or will Scarlett dump him before they ever really dated?

This story is so funny and filled with tons of chemistry, it was impossible to put down. Add in hilarious, meddling parents on both Scarlett and Dylan’s sides of the family, meddling texts from Dylan’s siblings, and so much humor from beginning to end, I loved it extra hard!! Do yourself a favor and pick up this book because Kayley Loring never disappoints.

New Release – Mama’s Boy by Avery Flynn

Mama’s Boy by Avery Flynn is now live!

He’s exactly who you want to take home.

Top three lies about mama’s boys:

1. That we don’t know what we want. That one is straight up BS. I know exactly what I want—to win this bet with my cousins by any means necessary even if it means finding the worst possible date in all of Harbor City and agreeing to whatever she asks in exchange for her pretending to fall for me.
     
2. That we are soft, little wimps. Yeah, you don’t get to be CEO of a multibillion dollar company by letting other people take advantage of you. So as soon as I realize my date Fiona Hartigan isn’t exactly who she appears to be, there’s nothing that will stop me from figuring out the truth—no matter how many dates it takes to unravel that mystery.
     
3. That we don’t know how to kiss. Oh yes we do. The only problem is that once I start kissing Fiona, I don’t want to stop and I have to because we’ve already agreed that all of this is temporary.

Now I’m the guy that every woman wants to bring home to mom—except for the woman I’m fake dating and falling in love with for real.

Review – Saving Silver by Xavier Neal

Book cover for Saving Silver (The Draak Legacy #1) by Xavier Neal

Saving Silver; The Draak Legacy #1
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: September 23, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy/Paranormal Romance

Author: Xavier Neal

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Dragons, mermaids, and genies, oh my!!

Dae was awakened to a magical world when a dragon shifter arrived in her veterinarian office one evening. The call to become his mate was strong between the two as Silver/Zilveren was simultaneously battling forces that were capturing ancient dragons throughout the city.

This is Xavier’s first jump into the paranormal world and I give her a solid 4.5 stars for tackling a new genre. The plot contained a lot of action and suspense and the chemistry still flowed between the two characters even when you threw in all of the paranormal oddities into the mix. Well done for this first jump into the fantastical realm.

I really enjoyed the different species of magical creatures that came up vs. the typical paranormal creatures that always seemed to be introduced in every other fantasy book I come across . There were also new spins on old species which I rather enjoyed as well. Once again, this showed Xavier’s creativity for tackling this new genre.

This is the first book in a new dragon series and there were several creatures introduced, like Z’s brothers. As the series progresses, the brothers and their mate matches will be intriguing to learn more about.

Synopsis:

From best-selling author Xavier Neal comes a brand-new, laugh-out-loud, paranormal romance you don’t want to miss…

I swear, one minute I’m dozing off during the night shift – don’t judge me – and the next I’m being told I’m Fate Mated to an ancient dragon.

An ancient dragon I couldn’t help but save when he woke me up out of the aforementioned slumber – again, don’t judge me.

Now this same ancient dragon – that I’m apparently destined to be with – is doing everything he can to win me over, because it’s up to me whether or not he’ll live the rest of his life in absolute agony or absolute bliss.

Oh, and let’s not forget the fact we’re being chased by elves, working with a grumpy Griffin, and have to rescue some poor kidnapped dragon before an evil corporation kills it.

Ugh.

Any chance this is all some crazy dream that I can’t wake up from?

No?

Well, can’t blame this human for asking.

Review – Mama’s Boy by Avery Flynn

57623346. sy475

Mama’s Boy; Last Man Standing #1
(An interconnecting standalone within a series)

Publication Date: September 27, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy

Author: Avery Flynn

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
So many adorable moments and crossover references. I loved the meddling family’s, fun dates, and just so many LOL moments to be had.

Even though Fiona and Dixon may have grown up in opposite worlds, they are more alike than they realize and it’s only when they spend time together, peeling back the lies and layers, that they truly discover their true selves and really enjoy each other to their fullest.

The outstanding moments came in with the blend of the large Hartigan family and the Beckett’s. While the Beckett’s is smaller, they are no less meddling in family affairs. Dixon and his cousins come up with a dare, while highly intoxicated of course, to be the last man standing in love, before the end of the year. The dare is, somewhat childish, but the Beckett’s never back down from a challenge and Dixon is by far one of the worst when it comes to never losing. He has to win at all costs, but he also sees no problem with this particular challenge. Love is something he never plans to do again so winning will be easy.

Dixon has been married and is currently a widow. He’s vowed never, ever to fall in love again. Been there, done that, never wants to feel that kind of pain again, but he also never loses. He has to win at all costs. He plans to take on this dare, six dates, no falling in love, no problem. That is until he meets Fiona Hartigan.

Why would Fiona ever date Dixon, especially knowing it’s all for a bet? She wants revenge. Dixon is the CEO of a cosmetics company and he’s dismissed her three times for a meeting. Three…stood up, dissing her, ignoring her times.This is her chance for an in to present her Nana’s products. She just needs to play it cool, help him win his bet and then she can ask him for any favor. It’s a win-win for both of them. That is until she starts falling for the man vs. the CEO tycoon.

With lots of steam, adorable meddling family moments, and the best reason of all…a hot mama’s boy…this book is a win-win-win.

Synopsis:

Top three lies about mama’s boys:

1. That we don’t know what we want. That one is straight up BS. I know exactly what I want—to win this bet with my cousins by any means necessary even if it means finding the worst possible date in all of Harbor City and agreeing to whatever she asks in exchange for her pretending to fall for me.

So as soon as I realize my date Fiona Hartigan isn’t exactly who she appears to be, there’s nothing that will stop me from figuring out the truth—no matter how many dates it takes to unravel that mystery.

3. That we don’t know how to kiss. Oh yes we do. The only problem is that once I start kissing Fiona, I don’t want to stop and I have to because we’ve already agreed that all of this is temporary.

Now I’m the guy that every woman wants to bring home to mom—except for the woman I’m fake dating and falling in love with for real.

Blog Tour – Romance by the Book by Sarah Ready

Welcome to Romeo, NY where it’s not a matter of if you find your soul mate, only when.

Romance by the Book, an all new steamy rom com standalone from author Sarah Ready is available now!

Book-loving librarian Jessie has loved Gavin Williams for practically her whole life. So when a psychic predicts that Gavin is Jessie’s one fated soul mate, she’s ecstatic.

There’s just one itty bitty little problem.

Gavin’s engaged to marry another woman.

What’s a book lover to do? Easy. Check out dozens of romance books, study the (totally realistic) way characters fall in love, and make a foolproof plan on how to win her soul mate (in one week).

Meet cute? Check.

Dance under the stars? Check.

Kiss in the rain? Check.

Romance books don’t lie – it’ll all go perfectly.

Except, there’s another problem. Gavin’s twin brother: William Williams IV.

Jessie has hated William for as long as she’s loved his brother. William is grump to Jessie’s sunshine, standoffish to her extrovert, cold to her warm. And when William learns of Jessie’s plan to derail his brother’s engagement he swears that he’ll do anything to stop her.

But after William and Jessie (unwillingly) share a dance…a romantic dinner…a kiss…Jessie starts to wonder, is William actually her soul mate? Or is this just another one of his games?

She can’t tell, because this romance definitely isn’t going by the book.

Before writing romance full-time Sarah had lots of fun teaching at an Ivy League. Then she realized she could have even more fun writing romance. Her favorite things after writing are adventuring and travel. You’ll frequently find her using her degree at a dino dig site, crawling into a cave, snorkeling, or on horseback riding through the jungle – all fodder for her next book. She’s lived in Scotland, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland and NYC. She currently lives in the Caribbean with her water-obsessed pup and her awesome family.
