Review/Synopsis:

Review:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Synopsis:

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

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

It’s all about the tan.

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

She’s also his sister.

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

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

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

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

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

9781538734674_KissMyCupcake_TR_CVR_V2-page-001 (1)

Ronan Knight and his old-school sports bar next door opening on the very same day. He may be super swoony, but Blaire hasn’t spent years obsessing over buttercream and bourbon to have him ruin her chance at success.

And the more time Blaire spends getting to know the real Ronan, the more she wonders if it’s possible to have her cupcake and eat it too.

DTF. Support your local girl gang!
These dirty, tough females were ready to go ALL. THE. WAY.

As an artist, I was used to getting creative and thinking outside the box. But this time, I might be in over my head.

Or head over heels …

I was ready for love. And the life of wedded bliss that was sure to follow. I just hadn’t found the one. Until I found myself doing the horizontal mambo in the backseat of my best friend’s car.

Aiden was the hottie Aussie who ran the famous Scarlett Herb restaurant. His shizzle sauce was the perfect condiment for the pink taco truck I worked.

I was positive we were just friends until one little plus sign turned our world upside down. I wanted forever, not a baby daddy.

Apparently, he hadn’t kept his shizzle sauce to himself.

Just the tip? Yeah, right!

AUTHOR BIO

Kat Addams is a forever twenty-nine-year-old fashionista following her lifelong dream of writing contemporary romance inspired by the exotic men she meets in her worldly travels. At least, that’s what she would like for you to think. She’s certainly not a stay-at-home mom indulging in excessive daydreaming, frozen pizzas, an unhealthy addiction to purchasing pajamas, and one too many cocktails on the regular. That’s some other romance author. The poor thing probably has to sneak away upstairs to write her dirty stories! What would her family think? Thankfully, that’s not Kat!

Review – Troublemaker by Kayley Loring

53906637. sy475

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

by: Kayley Loring

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

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

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

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

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

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

Synopsis:

TO: Alex Vega
FROM: Emilia Stiles

SUBJECT: Hello

Dear Mr. Vega,

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

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

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

Thanks so much,
Miss Stiles

TO: Emilia Stiles
FROM: Alex Vega

SUBJECT: Re: Well, hello again…

Dear Miss Stiles,

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

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

You’re so welcome,
Alex

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

Kiss My Cupcake 
(A standalone)

by: Helena Hunting

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

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

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

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

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

Synopsis:

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

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

From axe throwing (his place) to frosting contests (hers), Blaire and Ronan are constantly trying to one-up each other in a battle to win new customers. But with every clash, there’s also an undeniable chemistry. When an even bigger threat to their business comes to town, they’re forced to call a temporary time-out on their own war and work together.

New Release – Hasty by Julia Kent

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Hasty
Series: Do-Over #4
Author: Julia Kent
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 28, 2020
BLURB

AN ALL-NEW STANDALONE FROM NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR JULIA KENT COMPLETES THE DO-OVER SERIES!

I never thought my perp walk would lead to true love.

Then again, I never thought I’d be arrested on RICO charges and hauled away in zip ties on camera for the world to see, minutes after closing the most amazing deal of my career.

And all of it in front of my biggest rival, billionaire wunderkind Ian McRory.

I am broke.

I am disgraced.

I am alone.

I am a sucker.

But the worst part? I have to go back to my hometown and live in my bedroom filled with relics from my childhood.

Lisa Frank never made me so mad before.

Just when I needed a rescue, I got one — in the form of help from my biggest rival.

He can’t bring back my money.

He certainly can’t bring back my reputation or my pride.

But there’s one thing he can bring back to me.

A sense of hope.

Maybe even love.

Ian sees something in me no one else does, and he’s relentless about making me see it, too. As we grow closer, I’m starting to see that while my entire life used to be a lie, the truth is staring me in the present — and it’s a truth I like very, very much, hot eyes and gorgeous smile and all.

But I have to be careful.

I can’t be too —

That’s right.

Hasty.

The final book in the USA Today bestselling Do-Over Series (Fluffy, Perky, Feisty), as Mallory’s sister, Hastings “Hasty” Monahan gets her turn at a happily ever after that starts off with an arrest.

Hers.

EXCERPT

Today is the best day of my life.
I know people say that, and they mean it, but they don’t mean this. My best day is better than anyone else’s. Trust me.
I know.
I’m sitting at a table at Essentialz, a five-star restaurant in San Francisco. Everyone at the table watches me as I tuck the signed paperwork away in my black Bottega Veneta woven leather brief bag.
I, Hastings Monahan, just signed a nine-figure investment deal on behalf of the venture capital firm I work for.
Full partner, here I come.
Of course, lawyers will handle the majority of this. The signatures are symbolic as much as they are legal. But the fellow diners at my carefully crafted table will go back to China with an exciting opportunity for their company, Zhangwa Telecommunications, to enter the North American market with climate-change technology projecting yields that are the best aphrodisiac ever.
As I sip from my glass of Montrachet Grand Cru, I catch the eye of Ming Bannerton, a consultant with Zhangwa whose father is a high-ranking U.S State Department official in China, a woman who has a hunger for financial success that I can spot in anyone in three seconds flat. There’s something special about a fellow hustler–and when I use the word hustler, I don’t mean it pejoratively.
People who hustle get things done.
We connect. We network. We pattern match. We ruthlessly apply what we intuitively feel to what we operationally know in order to produce optimal outcomes.
In short–we hustle.
And we win.
But in competition, there can only be one winner.
One.
Tonight, I’m it.
Her smile mirrors mine, red lips stretched over perfectly white teeth that are as straight as a new picket fence. The smile doesn’t reach her eyes, but an intensity infuses her. She’s about five years younger than me, with a knowing eye that tells me we need to stay in touch. Someday soon, she may shoot past me, and that’s where all the legwork pays off.
In this business, you network down as well as you network up, if you want to get anywhere.
And the manila folder resting in my brief bag, the one that feels like a warm gold ingot pressed against my lips? That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you get somewhere.
“Where is Burke?” Mr. Zhao Bai asks, his head at a slight tilt, a gesture of genuine curiosity as his eyes survey me, looking for information that doesn’t come directly from my mouth. He’s the youngest of the four men at the table, a fast talker who looks around the room like he’s a mob boss. Negotiating with him took a steady hand I didn’t know I possessed, but now I understand.
Burke is part of the deal, and I didn’t realize it.
The contracts are signed, though. That makes my husband an off-the-books addendum. No matter what, this is my accomplishment.
My husband, Burke Oonaj, is one of the hottest market makers in finance right now. Even he will have no choice but to be impressed by the deal I’ve just put together.
But the inquiry about my husband makes my uterus fall.
And it’s not like he’s around to catch it.
“Good question,” I say before taking another sip of wine, needing to buy myself a smidgen of space and time. I only need a split second.
Normally.
For some reason that I can’t explain, my emotions are tangling in my mind, and that’s an unpredictable variable I have to weed out.
Fast.
My heart feels strangely heavy in my chest, a sense of dread filling me that has no right to be here. This is MY night, I tell that sense of dread. This is MY deal. This is my culmination of six years of careful work, all coming together, right now.
Go away, dread.
But Mr. Zhao’s question is a good one, because Burke isn’t answering any of my texts or emails or phone calls, and hasn’t for the last three days.
My husband has disappeared.
Not literally, of course, because husbands don’t just do that. Business travel can be intense. Plenty of stretches of time have gone by without hearing from him. They involved twenty-four hours or less, though.
Not eighty-one hours and thirteen minutes.
Not that I’m counting.
I can’t admit any of this to anyone at this table, of course, so instead, I give what my pattern-matching brain tells me is the optimal answer, designed to make me look good.
“Burke’s fine,” I say with a grin, the glass of wine still full enough to make more sips look like an appropriate response. “He sends his best regards. He would have been here tonight, but… you know.”
Two of the men share a look I don’t like. It’s a fleeting glance, the type that is practiced and meant to look like nothing. You think I’m paranoid, that I’m inventing it all?
Wrong.
I’m in a state of hyperarousal.
No, not the sexual kind. Haven’t felt that in a long time, at least not with Burke. My hyperarousal is based around the stress hormones pumping through me from the excitement of what I just accomplished.
Me. Myself. Alone.
Independent of Burke.
As workday smiles stretch to become the more casual, intimate grins of people enjoying bottle after bottle of excellent wine, I loosen up. The answer I gave them sufficed. We can move on.
My body feels numb and excited at the same time. I’m on top of the world. The pinnacle.
I am Peak Hastings.
Which is why, when the maître d’ approaches my side, I don’t pick up on the gravity of his whisper. No one would. Because learning that my credit card has been declined for this business dinner is definitely not part of the plan, and the areas of my brain assigned to processing language literally can’t comprehend it.
“It’s what?” I whisper, standing carefully, legs still steady, my alcohol consumption measured, even if my tablemates have made their way through more wine than an entire wedding party back home.
The maître d’, José, gives me a wide-eyed but polite look. “I’m sorry, Ms. Monahan. This has never happened before when you’ve dined with us. But the credit card company was very firm. You cannot use this one.”
Mr. Zhao gives me an inquiring look. My stomach sinks. Did he overhear?
“Will you all excuse me?” I tell them, hating the disruption, my legs turning into two steel beams covered in chilled skin.
“Something must be wrong with the credit card processor,” I snap at the maître d’ as I hurry away from my group. I want to get the taint of this failure out of the way and get back to my stellar success.
Once we’re out of sight of my table, I rifle through my purse and find another business credit card. “Use this one. And let me be very clear, to you and to your boss, that this is absolutely, abjectly unacceptable.”
He inserts the card, chip side in. “I realize this, Ms. Monahan, but we cannot…”
Beep.
He stares at the credit card terminal.
I read the display upside down. “Declined!” I hiss. “This is impossible! That card has no limit!”
“Perhaps you’ve had your identity stolen, or there are fraud alerts on your account? Perhaps you’re the victim of a financial crime?” José suggests.
“I can’t be the victim of a financial crime!” I snap at him. “I’m a financial expert! This doesn’t happen to people like me. Here!” I shove a third company card at him. This one better work.
I only have one more.
My mind races ahead, conjuring contingency plans, even as my cheeks burn with shame.
Shame.
Why would I feel shame for someone else’s mistake? And yet, there it is, and I have to override it fast. Because if I don’t, it gets a toehold.
And that is the fastest way to lose your edge.
José closes his eyes and lets out a sigh through his nose, a split second before the display terminal beeps.
Again.
“Your computer system is down,” I declare, pulling out the fourth card and my phone, texting my office manager. Maybe something went wrong. Maybe José is right. Maybe we were hacked. But this is surreal enough to let the dread come inside me and have a seat, as it decides whether to become an overnight guest.
It doesn’t matter. What matters is that I’m staring at a mid-four-figure bill that I owe, right now, and have no way to settle.
This cannot be happening.
As he runs the fourth card, the main door opens. My spine straightens, calves stretching tall, and not just from the five-inch heels I’m wearing.

Ian McCrory cannot see me like this.

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

53754187. sy475

When the Time is Right
(A standalone)

by: M. Mabie and Aly Martinez

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

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

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

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

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

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

Synopsis:

Fate doesn’t always happen overnight.

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

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

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

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

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

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

New Release – Whip It Out by Kat Addams

Title: Whip It Out
Series: DTF (Dirty. Tough. Female.) #3
Author: Kat Addams
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 21, 2020
BLURB

DTF. Support your local girl gang!

Me and my dirty, tough female besties are ready to dominate in Whip It Out!

As a dominatrix and a boss babe, I was used to taking charge both in and out of the bedroom.
But raising a kid …

That was a lot of responsibility. How would I know the first thing about motherhood when my mom was such a bad example?

I sure wasn’t looking for love or a hot-as-hell, overprotective single dad. But that was exactly what I found gyrating onstage in a leopard-print thong.

Terrance—my favorite bartender by day and stripper named Tito by night. What was not to love?
Plus, if things didn’t work out, my girl gang always had my back. Pink taco getaway truck and all.

But the way Terrance loved his little girl melted my heart and gave me a warm feeling that I hadn’t thought existed in my cold, dead soul. I wondered if maybe, just maybe, I could be the woman he needed me to be.

What could it hurt if I gave it a shot?

AUTHOR BIO

Kat Addams is a forever twenty-nine-year-old fashionista following her lifelong dream of writing contemporary romance inspired by the exotic men she meets in her worldly travels. At least, that’s what she would like for you to think. She’s certainly not a stay-at-home mom indulging in excessive daydreaming, frozen pizzas, an unhealthy addiction to purchasing pajamas, and one too many cocktails on the regular. That’s some other romance author. The poor thing probably has to sneak away upstairs to write her dirty stories! What would her family think? Thankfully, that’s not Kat!

Flirtasaurus is fantastic, flirty fun! Full of fabulous banter, clever characters and a delicious romance!”
– Lauren Blakely, #1 New York Times Bestselling author

Flirtasaurus, an all-new not-to-be-missed workplace romantic comedy from debut author Erin Mallon is available now!

Flirtasaurus_Ebook_Amazon

My name is Calliope and “I bone for a living.” Kidding. I am studying to be a paleontologist though. It’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to be, and I have finally landed the perfect museum internship to make all of my dino-loving dreams come true.

Trouble is, everyone wants me to be a gentle, loving sort of creature, but I’m more of the T-Rex type by nature – the kind who is determined to stomp and tear her way through any obstacle in order to get what she wants.

But when a sexy, rumbly-voiced astronomer plummets into my orbit and threatens to break open my hard little heart, my career and my whole way of looking at the world is suddenly on the line.

The dinosaurs didn’t see their asteroid coming.

And I sure as hell wasn’t prepared for mine.

TO: Alex Vega
FROM: Emilia Stiles

SUBJECT: Hello

Dear Mr. Vega,

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

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

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

Thanks so much,
Miss Stiles

TO: Emilia Stiles
FROM: Alex Vega

SUBJECT: Re: Well, hello again…

Dear Miss Stiles,

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

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

You’re so welcome,
Alex

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

AUTHOR BIO

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 – Nerdy Little Secret by Carrie Aarons

💚NERDY LITTLE SECRET IS LIVE!💚

NERDY LITTLE SECRET is now live, and this new release by Carrie Aarons is sexy, hilarious and spins the hot nerd trope on its head! You can one-click now or read it for free in Kindle Unlimited!

“From the chemistry, to the heartfelt conversations, to the fiery hot sexy times and the sweetest of feels, Carrie brings everything to the table in this fabulous college romance.”

Blurb

I’m sleeping with the nerd.
The nice guy.
The science geek who wears periodic table t-shirts around campus.

That’s my dirty little secret, but it began long before he unknowingly transferred to the same college I attend. We met at the summer camp I was mandated to work at, and our hush-hush affair started behind the kayak cabin and in the darkened canteen long after our respective campers went to sleep.

When Mick Barrett, rockstar name a complete red herring, enrolls at Salem Walsh University, we’re both shocked the first time we bump into each other. And he’s … surprisingly cold. With goals and secrets of his own, Mick is closed off and uninterested, something I’ve never encountered from the opposite sex.

My bruised ego has no time to recover, however, when he discovers the real secret I’m keeping, one that’s even more detrimental than our steamy summer fling. Agreeing to become my tutor, and help me save my future, the glasses-wearing swimmer, with the body of an Olympian under that punny math sweatshirt, begins to grow on me. Again.

Except we both have bigger things to focus on than sneaking around. Plus, we’re not made for each other. He’s aiming to be the next doctor of our generation, while I’m just hoping to survive my Saturday morning hangover.

Too bad our bodies, and hearts, start to believe otherwise.
Which has me questioning; can my dirty little secret become a happily ever after?

Author of romance novels such as The Tenth Girl and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.

When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She’s a Jersey girl living in Texas with her husband, daughter and furry son.

Blog Tour – Making Whoopie by Erin Nicholas

mw bt banner

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen…

Making Whoopie, an all-new not-to-be-missed marriage of convenience romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas, is available now!

MW Cover

This marriage of convenience is about to get sticky.
Getting hitched for the health insurance is not Jocelyn Asher’s idea of romance.

But the hospital quote has really frosted her cookies, and suddenly, “I’m rich. We should just get married,” sounds a whole lot more swoony.

Especially when the man proposing is this gorgeous. And takes her to parties featuring champagne and petit fours. She’s a sucker for anything with bubbles or icing. And just like that she finds herself married to a near stranger.

Grant Lorre is usually allergic to spontaneity.

So why did he ask the beautiful small-town baker he had a one-night stand with to marry him? Somehow watching her lick batter off a whisk–not a euphemism–made a wedding and a little fraud seem like a sweet idea.

They’ll just play house and make some whoopie–pies, of course–for a few months and then move on with their separate lives. Until then, bring on the cream filling. And that is a euphemism.

But as things heat up even outside of the kitchen, they quickly realize there’s no recipe to follow when it comes to love.

Read Kay’s Review: Making Whoopie

 

 

Excerpt

No one fell in love over cheesy potatoes.

That was ridiculous. There was nothing sexy about cheesy potatoes. Or potatoes without cheese, for that matter.

But lust? Well, that was a possibility. Apparently.

Because watching Grant Lorre eat cheesy potatoes across her best friend’s mother’s dining room table was making Jocelyn Asher hot.

Of course, Maggie McCaffery’s cheesy potatoes were award-winning. Seriously. She’d taken home the purple ribbon four times from the Dubuque County Fair and twice from the Iowa State Fair. And Grant seemed to agree that they were delicious. He’d made a sexy groaning sound when he’d first taken a bite, and Josie had been mesmerized as his lips closed around the tines of his fork. Never mind how her heart rate had picked up when he’d turned the fork and licked it.

She was a mess. Purple ribbon or not, Josie was pretty sure that getting worked up over watching a man eat potatoes meant she was hard up.

She took a long drink of iced tea and tried to remember the last time she’d had sex. If she wasn’t forgetting anyone—and how sad would that be—the last time had been with Ben Davis. After Kara Davis’s, now Tibbin’s, wedding.

Last week Kara had been into Buttered Up, the bakery where Josie worked with her best friend Zoe, to order a miniature version of her wedding cake to celebrate their first anniversary.

Josie sighed. That had to explain the sexy potato thing going on across the table. It had to.

But then Grant laughed at something Aiden, his best friend and Zoe’s fiancé—yes, it was one big happy group at this table—said, and Josie felt her neglected lady parts clench. Yeah, it wasn’t the potatoes.

Thankfully.

Kind of.

As weird as getting turned on by potatoes might be, it might have been preferable to being turned on by the man who had been coming into the bakery nearly every morning for the past two weeks, but hadn’t so much as asked her to have a cup of coffee with him.

He’d asked her if the blueberries in the muffins were locally sourced. He’d asked her if they had any gluten-free cinnamon scones. He’d asked her for a lemon slice for his cup of hot water. But that was pretty much the extent of the things he’d asked her over the course of the time they’d known each other.

Oh, and he’d caught her when she’d fallen off a ladder. Twice. Very gallantly.

He’d swept her up before she’d hit the floor. Like a freaking knight in shining armor.

But both times he’d simply set her on her feet and gone on with his day.

She, on the other hand, was now getting hot and bothered by side dishes.

Review – Flirtasaurus by Erin Mallon

53674950. sy475

Flirtasaurus; The Natural History Series #1 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Erin Mallon

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Great start for Erin Mallon’s debut novel! Lot’s of LOL moments intermixed with dino learning.

I have always loved going to the museum and the dinosaur exhibits have especially one of my favorite stops when I visit. Growing up near Chicago I had my fair share of museum’s to pick from so I was easily able to imagine the world Calliope was immersed in.

Told completely from her POV, we get to see Calliope stick her foot in her mouth quite a bit, but she doesn’t often see her own transgressions. As a scientist in a male populated field, she often has a lack of filter, which makes for lots of quirky moments, but it also gets her into sticky situations like her meet-cute with Ralph the astronomer.

Calliope is stuck in an elevator when she first meets Ralph and he is on the other side of the doors, so they only hear each other’s voices. She only has his sultry voice to go on to find him later, but lo and behold, he’s the planetarium guide leading the show and talking about how the dinosaurs died. She’s appalled that he killed her dinos. Ralph adores her quirky views and so begins their flirty relationship.

 

Synopsis:

My name is Calliope and “I bone for a living.” Kidding. I am studying to be a paleontologist though. It’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to be, and I have finally landed the perfect museum internship to make all of my dino-loving dreams come true.

Trouble is, everyone wants me to be a gentle, loving sort of creature, but I’m more of the T-Rex type by nature – the kind who is determined to stomp and tear her way through any obstacle in order to get what she wants.

But when a sexy, rumbly-voiced astronomer plummets into my orbit and threatens to break open my hard little heart, my career and my whole way of looking at the world is suddenly on the line.

The dinosaurs didn’t see their asteroid coming.

And I sure as hell wasn’t prepared for mine.

I started to pull away from Nola, but she stopped me with a hand on my waist. “Carol’s still watching.”
I didn’t bother pointing out her lie. No one stood in Carol’s window, and Nola hadn’t bothered to look over her shoulder to check.
I studied the face in front of me. Her fake smile had been replaced with a soft look as she gazed back into my eyes.
“Okay,” I said with a smile. I wrapped an arm around her waist, tugging her closer, our hips brushing against each other.
“How was the little wife’s day at work?”
Nola arched a smooth brow. “Little wife? Hmm, I think you’re going to have to pick something different.”
“How about Mrs. HOA?”
She scrunched her face up as she thought about it. “No, I don’t think so. I think I prefer ‘Your Highness.'”
She screeched when I ran my fingers up the side of her ribs. She leapt back, smacking at my reaching hand, laughing loudly. “Stop that!”
I made one more half-hearted grab for her. She glared at me. “If you tickle me, I won’t share my pizza!”
I held both hands in the air in surrender. “When you say pizza, you mean…”
She narrowed her eyes at me as she opened the minivan door. “I mean pepperoni and cheese.”
I shrugged. “Can’t blame a guy for trying.”
She passed the pizza to me, shut the car door, then smacked my butt as she jogged by.
I really wished our relationship was real. Maybe it could be.

New Release – Making Whoopie by Erin Nicholas

MW rb banner

This marriage of convenience is about to get sticky.

Making Whoopie, an all-new fun and flirty marriage of convenience standalone from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas, is available now!

MW Cover

Getting hitched for the health insurance is not Jocelyn Asher’s idea of romance.

But the hospital quote has really frosted her cookies, and suddenly, “I’m rich. We should just get married,” sounds a whole lot more swoony.

Especially when the man proposing is this gorgeous. And takes her to parties featuring champagne and petit fours. She’s a sucker for anything with bubbles or icing. And just like that she finds herself married to a near stranger.

Grant Lorre is usually allergic to spontaneity.

So why did he ask the beautiful small-town baker he had a one-night stand with to marry him? Somehow watching her lick batter off a whisk–not a euphemism–made a wedding and a little fraud seem like a sweet idea.

They’ll just play house and make some whoopie–pies, of course–for a few months and then move on with their separate lives. Until then, bring on the cream filling. And that is a euphemism.

But as things heat up even outside of the kitchen, they quickly realize there’s no recipe to follow when it comes to love.

Review – Lead Me Back by CD Reiss

48922037. sy475

Lead Me Back 
(A standalone)

by: CD Reiss

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Contact PassionFlix because I have your next hit movie. Lead Me Back read like the perfect summer romcom. Adorable, quirky female who gets the old cell phone number of a former boy band singer turned movie star. On paper they were magic, on cinema they would be gold!

Justin Beckett is trying to rebrand his image after a falling out with his former bandmates. A horrible misunderstanding that of course the media blew out of proportion which only drew a deeper wedge between him and his lifelong friends and colleges. So part of cleaning up his image was giving up his old cellphone number which then ended up in the hands of one Kayla Montgomery, a new resident to California.

Kayla was running from her old life in NY and that meant giving up her old phone. She wasn’t expecting a call right away after leaving the phone store, considering no one had her new number, but when a seemingly confused older woman asked her to bring flowers for her date later, Kayla didn’t exactly have anything else to do so she showed up with said flowers on Justin Beckett’s grandmother’s doorstep.

Their meet-cute wasn’t exactly cute or intentionally a meeting. He was rude and actually asked her to be his call girl…well not in the sexual relationship sense. He wanted her to take messages if anyone called for him. As much as she tried to tell him no, he just didn’t understand that word. Soon Kayla found herself immersed in his world and she wasn’t sure what to think about it.

Their back and forth is hilarious fun, they both need it more than they know, especially while navigating through their sticky life situations. Lead Me Back is a page-turning summer good-time read.

Synopsis:

A twist of fate proves wildly explosive in New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss’s smart and sexy Hollywood romance about the cost of running from your past to get to your dreams.

Cutting all ties, Kayla Montgomery drives cross-country to Los Angeles. New start. New life. And an unexpected new job: assistant to Justin Beckett.

The Justin Beckett.

The boy band rebel with the cocky attitude and dreamy bed head who casts a spell over his fans and tests the patience of his handlers.

Now at the peak of Mount Adulthood, he has to build a clean-cut, movie star image. It’s in his contract. No partying. No attitude. No groupies.

To tie it together, he needs a normal girl.

Suddenly, Kayla’s swept up in Justin’s glamorous world, and his arms. But the most dizzying thing is Justin himself. Sweet, generous, reliable, and as eager to shed his past as Kayla is hers.

About that…

Those ties she thought she’d cut? They’ve followed her across the country with her secrets in tow, and they’re about to test Kayla’s courage, Justin’s loyalty, and a love that wasn’t part of the deal.

New Release – Loud Mouth by Avery Flynn

Release Date: June 22

 

Image may contain: one or more people and shoes, text that says 'USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR AVERY FLYNN Don't kill the messenger... LOUD MOUTH A Hot Romantic Comedy'

 

I never meant to say a word, not one single word.

But I did.

Now because of something I leaked—without even realizing it—I’ve inadvertently broken up one of the Ice Knights’ most legendary bromances. And worse—I’ve kicked hockey star Ian Petrov’s grumpy level to insane levels of grump.

And what could make it worse? How about the two of us being trapped together in a remote cabin after a massive blizzard. Neither of us can leave. Just us, the snow, his resentment, and OMG sexual tension so thick it would take a snowplow to break through it.

I’ve got to get out of here before I do something even dumber than I’ve already done and kiss the sexy with his misplaced anger and perfect pecs. That would be the worst, the absolute worst. But… would it be terrible if we gave in? Just a little? It’s not like we’re ever going to have to spend time together again. 

Until the next morning when we’re told we have to play chummy for the press until this news cycle blows over.

Making Whoopie; Hot Cakes #3 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Erin Nicholas

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The Hot Cakes Series gets better and better! A hot, bossy, alpha male mixed with a sweet, sassy female baker and Making Whoopie is the perfect recipe for Erin Nicholas’ newest romcom!

The romantic, never wants to leave Appleby, IA baker literally falls into the steady arms of Grant Lorre. A man known for his spreadsheets and powerpoint presentations. There isn’t a romantic or fanciful thing about Grant, at least not one that his friends would accuse him of, but Josie gets to know a different side to the bossy billionaire and every bossy, caveman, protective streak in him calls to the romantic side in her.

When Josie needs surgery and she has no insurance or nest egg set aside to cover the procedure Grant offers to cover it. When Josie refuses his money he offers himself up instead and by that I mean, he offers himself up as her husband so she is covered on his insurance. She takes his offer, considering their amazing chemistry, but more so it doesn’t cost Grant a small fortune to be his wife, just the potential to lose her heart.

Making Whoopie is steamy and funny and full of protective, alpha male that will make you swoon. Baking will never be the same again!! I don’t know why I’m continually amazed that each book gets better and better, because Erin does it with every series I read of hers, but I LOVE this book and I’m so excited to read what comes next!

Synopsis:

This marriage of convenience is about to get sticky.

Getting hitched for the health insurance is not Jocelyn Asher’s idea of romance.

Everly –

If my life were a reality TV show, it’d be called Murphy’s Law. Tripping over my feet and sticking my foot in my mouth are art forms I’ve perfected. Relationships?

My name is Calliope and “I bone for a living.” Kidding. I am studying to be a paleontologist though. It’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to be, and I have finally landed the perfect museum internship to make all of my dino-loving dreams come true.

Trouble is, everyone wants me to be a gentle, loving sort of creature, but I’m more of the T-Rex type by nature – the kind who is determined to stomp and tear her way through any obstacle in order to get what she wants.

Author: Kat Addams
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 16, 2020

DTF. Support your local girl gang!

Me and my dirty, tough female besties were stripping it down at The Steamy Clam!

I knew that my side hustle as a stripper would pay my bills, but who would have thought the pole life would lead to a proposal?

A fake one anyway …

Then again, I knew divine intervention when I saw it.

And that fake relationship might be the realest thing I’d ever felt.

I was minding my business, slaying my goals, living my best life with my girl gang—on my own terms. Love was the last thing on my mind. Marriage just wasn’t in the cards for me. I never considered myself wifey material.

Staying at home, baking cookies and washing laundry?
Forget it!

Then, Weston, with his big heart and bushy beard, snuck his way into my feelings. His family was prim and perfect, and my edgy attitude and I were not.

He needed a fiancée to secure his place in the family business, and I needed cash to pay off my debts from a string of mooching exes.

This crazy lie was a win-win for both of us. How could I say no?

Kat Addams is a forever twenty-nine-year-old fashionista following her lifelong dream of writing contemporary romance inspired by the exotic men she meets in her worldly travels. At least, that’s what she would like for you to think. She’s certainly not a stay-at-home mom indulging in excessive daydreaming, frozen pizzas, an unhealthy addiction to purchasing pajamas, and one too many cocktails on the regular. That’s some other romance author. The poor thing probably has to sneak away upstairs to write her dirty stories! What would her family think? Thankfully, that’s not Kat!

Review – Loud Mouth by Avery Flynn

Loud Mouth; Ice Knights #3 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Avery Flynn

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Adorable, laugh out loud addition to the Ice Knights series!

The sparks fly when Ian and Shelby are locked away in a remote cabin together (an infamous Lucy setup? maybe…), but what happened in that zip code doesn’t stay in that zip code. Ian and Shelby brought the sparks back with them and their chemistry is so hot it basically melts the ice in the hockey rink.

Even though Shelby didn’t advertently release information about Ian and Alex’s parentage (two men and best friends from the same hockey team), it was leaked nonetheless. The outcome of that information was disastrous and a friendship between Ian and Alex was ruined along with the potential of a season championship. Shelby feels horrible, hence why she’s hiding out at a cabin all alone, or at least she thought she was. That was until Ian shows up at the same secluded cabin.

Ian is angry. He feels like the rug has been pulled out from under his life at the secrets and lies that both his father and Alex, the man whom he called his best friend, have been keeping from him. His own half-brother has known this secret for years and never told him so he’s angry, which is why he’s decided to hide out at a remote cabin and lick his wounds alone. Or at least he thought he was until he is stun gunned by a feisty woman, the very one who outed his family secret.

While Ian and Shelby work out their forgiveness, by ways of their instant chemistry, the team wants Shelby to work her magic on Ian and Alex so they can reconnect their friendship and the team can bring home a championship. Somethings may be easier said than done.

Shelby joins the team for a long away road trip and gets very cozy with Ian and Alex every night at dinner so she’s able to create an exclusive story about the two, allowing them to reconnect, but also allowing Ian and Shelby to inadvertently grow closer making their relationship almost impossible to shy away from.

Could these two really make it work? The hockey player and the media loud mouth? I believe they sound like a match made in Ice Knight heaven!

Synopsis:

I never meant to say a word, not one single word.

But I did.

And now, because of my blog, everyone knows that Ice Knights hockey star Ian Petrov’s best friend and fellow player is actually his half brother—hello, hockey Hall of Famer dad who couldn’t keep his jeans zipped.

That wouldn’t be such a big deal if Ian knew. He didn’t, and boy howdy is he pissed. And who is he most mad at? Oh sure, he’s upset with his dad and former best friend/brother from another mother, but most of his ire is with me. It’s definitely a case of hating the messenger.

And what could make it worse? How about the two of us being trapped together in a remote cabin after a massive blizzard. Neither of us can leave. Just us, the snow, his resentment, and OMG sexual tension so thick it would take a snowplow to break through it.

I’ve got to get out of here before I do something even dumber than I’ve already done and kiss the sexy, snarly grump with his misplaced anger and perfect pecs. That would be the worst, the absolute worst. That’s why I’m not going to do it. Nope. Really. So why can’t I stop imagining what it would be like?

Each book in the Ice Knights series is STANDALONE:
* Parental Guidance
* Awk-Weird

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Loved it, loved it, laughed-out-loud loved it!!

I’m going to admit that I’ve never watched the Outlander (not that I don’t understand references or know the premise), but after reading this book I am now placing that show high up on my to be watched list!!!

Ethan James Stewart is the hottest Scot I’ve ever read, hands down. Growly, grouchy, caring, alpha, big, and loving…oh, I need that accented man in my life.

Add in Elizabeth is also quirky, outspoken, bumbling, and completely heartfelt and loving. I was feeling a major girl crush on her too!

These two together were reading gold. Moments of  pure happiness where I was laughing one moment and then some tears came leaking out of my face the next, but not long after I was laughing once again. Those are the absolute best moments when reading. Well, also when you add in the Scottish accent, and yes I seriously read the accented voice in my head and it’s soooooo dreamy, I really need to visit Scotland. Anyway, add in that Ethan is a cocky doc and Elizabeth is a quicky patient and top it all off that they are new neighbors, this book is a must read!

Synopsis:

One trip down the stairs, caused by a lone Lego, while wrapped in a towel, spewing a plethora of profanities, and my cell phone went flying.
I landed on my ass, and then the ER.
Between those two occurrences was a FaceTime call, placed by a bouncing phone, to the number of a man I didn’t even truly look at, who had now seen more of my body than anyone had since my Tinder days, over a year ago.
Three declined calls later, I limped out the door to get myself to the ER before starting my hectic day.
The ER was packed, but when I saw Nurse Bridget, one of my students’ mothers, I pleaded my case and she hurried me into an examination room.
An hour later, I left on crutches with a bruised ass, a fractured ankle, and an appointment to see an orthopedic surgeon at four p.m.
Arriving fifteen minutes late for that appointment, I heard the sexy yet very brash accent of a man who clearly had an obsession with punctuality and, apparently, no bedside manner.
Dr. Ethan Stewart, tall, copper-haired, sinfully sexy … was a total ass.
After a tongue-lashing about how irresponsible I was to, first, leave the ER with such an injury, and second, be late, I put him in his place … or so I thought.
Turned off by his arrogant attitude, turned on by the roguish glint in his green eyes and the way he spoke, I left his office a hot … and wet mess.
Upon exiting, my phone rang again. It was the same number from before, and I couldn’t help answering to give the caller a piece of my mind.
Once in my car, I hung up, tossed my phone on the passenger seat, and then looked out the window to see him with his phone to his ear and a grin spread across his far too handsome face.
It couldn’t be …
Could it?

New Release – Reckless by Stella Rhys

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Reckless
An Irresistible Series Standalone
Author: Stella Rhys
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 9, 2020
BLURB

For years, we never looked at each other like that. 
But all it took was one night for everything to change.

Some days, he’s my worst enemy. Other days he’s my best friend. Every day, of course, Adam Maxwell is my cocky prick of a boss, and for the past five years, we’ve been the official power duo at Engelman Sports, closing multi-million dollar contracts like LA’s most well-oiled machine.
Honestly, we thrive on the daily love-hate.
I call out his womanizing. He rags on my “needy” fiancé. And we carry right on. Because through thick and thin, our work dynamic has always stayed rock-solid. Fine-tuned to the kind of perfection you couldn’t break if you tried.
Or so I thought.
Until one night.
That was all it took to turn our worlds upside down. One weekend business trip and one birthday surprise gone catastrophically wrong. Long story short, Adam caught me exposed.
I felt him aroused…
And just like that the switch flipped on our dynamic.
For five years, Adam Maxwell and I were just friends. But now?
We’re anything but.

Blog Tour – When the Walls Come Down by Aly Martinez and M. Mabie

wtwcd BT banner

“Exactly what I needed to relax, laugh, and swoon after a hard day. I cannot wait to see what M. Mabie and Aly Martinez come up with next.”
–Carrie Ann Ryan, New York Times Bestselling Author

When the Walls Come Down, an all-new, steamy, swoony, highly entertaining office romance from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez and M. Mabie is available now!

Come Down ecover

Did you ever hear the joke about the guy whose wife cheated on him with his best friend? So he quit his job, moved into his parents’ basement, and gained fifty pounds?

No? Because that wasn’t a joke. It was my life.

Four years later, I’m back with a dream job, a killer apartment, and a set of abs that are better than ever.

So, when Maggie Light, a stunning, snarky blonde moves in next door, and we spend the hottest weekend of our lives together, I think this could be the greatest comeback story ever.

That is until I realize Maggie has moved to town to do one thing—steal my job.

Maybe this isn’t a comeback story after all. Maybe this is war—one I intend to win.

What I never anticipated was that maybe I’d rather win her.

Perhaps, if I’m lucky, the universe has finally run out of jokes and I can somehow win both.

Excerpt

Oh, for fuck’s sake. Am I a man or not?

Here goes fucking nothing.

Take a risk, my ass. I’d fucking show Casey and Blake a damn risk.

I marched down to where she was sitting. “Hi, I’m Shane.”

She looked shocked, maybe a little startled by my approach—and rightly so. I’d stalked over like the fucking Terminator, all amped up from my private pep talk.

“The bartender, Chris, said you’re new in town, and it’s your first time here.”

Her sparkling blue eyes stood out against her makeup, and now—standing close to her—I could smell her perfume. A subtle and warm scent that made me want to lean in.

What the fuck had I been thinking?

To put it mildly, she was out of my league, but hey… Risks, right?

“If you’re dining alone, would you mind if I offer a suggestion from the menu?”

“I was only looking it over out of curiosity. I really just came in for a drink or two.” She folded it and placed it on the wooden top in front of her.

Goddamn, that cleavage.

“Oh. Yeah. Okay. Well, then…uh…let me get one for you.” I might have strutted over like the Terminator, but I was fumbling over my words like Barney Fife and beginning to sweat like a Crossfitter.

Her brows bunched. “Um, you really don’t have to do that.”

“Please. After the day I’ve had, I’ll actually have one with you.” I swiped at the back of my neck. “The drinks are good here. Very cold. Wet.” Jesus fucking Christ, Shane. Wet!? “Um. Alcoholic, if that’s what you’re into.” I waved Chris—and his bigger-than-life shit-eating grin—down to us.

“Find something you’d like?” he asked her.

“I’ll just have a Titos and cranberry,” she answered. “I hear they’re very cold and wet here.”

Chris looked at me disappointedly, probably guessing at how badly I’d botched this introduction. He wasn’t wrong, but she hadn’t told me to fuck off yet.

Yet.

“And I’ll take a Honeybee Brown,” I added.

He spun on his heel, shocked. “Really?”

I shrugged and shot daggers at him. “Really. A pint, please.”

“A cold, wet one too, eh? Okay, man. Coming right up.” He made our drinks and then about a dozen more for the servers who were keeping him busy.

“Thanks for the drink,” she said, clinking our glasses together, her eyes never quite meeting mine.

“Yeah. Sure. No problem.” I followed her lead and took a sip.

“So, do you come here a lot, Shane?”

My name on her lips had me clearing my throat.

“Yes,” replied our asshole bartender before I could answer.

“I live close,” I explained, and she nodded in understanding. “So, where did you come to the Bay from?” I took another sip, realizing that counting the beer I’d had with Casey earlier and this one, I was nearing my only-a-few-drinks daily limit. So I’d be savoring the pint as long as she didn’t seem too put off by my dusty-ass small talk. Otherwise, I could chug it down and then be on my merry way, leaving her to enjoy her night without a divorced, practically fired dude bugging her.

“Atlanta,” she replied and swirled a piece of ice with the drink stirrer in her glass. Still no eye contact.

Small talk. I fumbled for more small talk.

“You have family here?”

“No, I’ve always wanted to get out of Georgia. So, when I landed a job out here, it seemed like a sign.”

Finally, her blue eyes met mine and… Fuck, if I could have just remembered to blink, I’d have been doing well. I feared if I broke the gaze for just a second, I’d never see that color again, because surely it was a mirage of some sort. Like a crystal-blue pool in a desert. The kind of trick eyes could only play on a man who hadn’t been laid in nearly half a decade.

She finished with, “I start on Monday. I guess fate is as good a time as any to take a risk.”

New Release – Learning Curves by Molly O’Hare

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Learning Curves
Author: Molly O’Hare
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 8, 2020
BLURB

Learning Curves is a single dad, enemies to lovers, curvy girl rom-com with a teacher that everyone wished they had in school, and a swoon-worthy dad that would do anything for his daughter. Throw in an over-eating dog and watch what happens next.

To Spencer Hurley, women only left pain and destruction in their wake. The only good thing that came from his disaster of an ex was his daughter, Annabelle. Right now, making sure Belle was taken care of and getting her the help she needed with her learning disabilities was his only focus. And if that meant moving to a new town, consider the moving truck rented and packed.

Ellie Ryan spent her childhood being judged and bullied because of her learning disabilities. Jokes on them, though, she was now the top special education teacher in her district. See, Ellie totally had her life together. Kind of. Maybe… Okay, really, she’s a word-vomiting, curvy, hot-mess, who hasn’t had a date in who knows how long. And then there was Roxy, her rude over-eating dog. Nevertheless, Ellie was fiercely protective of her students. She’d gladly rip out the throat of anyone that dared to mess with her kids. Including their parents.

So, please explain to Ellie why, even after calling her new student’s father out during a disastrous parent-teacher meeting, Ellie couldn’t help being insanely attracted to the gruff single dad? Somebody, please help her. Besides, nothing good could come from it… right?

AUTHOR BIO

Hey, thanks for reading my bio to check me out! Has anyone told you, you’re beautiful and amazing lately? Just in case they haven’t, I am!

So you want to know a little more about me? Well, okay then. Much like any author out there, sleeping doesn’t come easily to me. As it turns out, I’ve got horrible insomnia. Like, scary horrible. Anyway, when I was younger, to help myself fall asleep I’d tell myself stories. Each night I’d pick up where the story left off previously until it was complete. Then I started writing them down. A few months later, here I am, sharing my lack of sleep with all of you. Who said the stories in our heads can’t be fun for others?

ReviewRead Kay’s Review: One Click Love

Blurb:
Want a man who is not only hot but knows how to handle a blaze?
Well ladies, it’s your lucky day.

John “Mack” McPherson is 6’3” of fine with a six-pack that makes men half his
age question their gym regimen. Teddy-bear brown eyes with brown hair, his graying
temples let you flirt with just enough silver fox so you know you’ve got yourself a real
man. But don’t let the body and face fool you, he’s incredibly smart, with medals for
days and won’t think twice about putting his own life on the line to save someone else.

Brave, dependable, and needing someone equally awesome,
Mack is ready to be
snapped up by a feisty female who isn’t scared to play with fire.

John,

Not sure how feisty I am now, but I’m fighting my way back. Little scares me
though, and I’m not someone who breaks easily. Not interested in playing mind games,
so if your idea of a good time is heading to a club where we pretend to be into the scene, then it’s probably for the best we don’t meet. I expect honesty and a half-way decent orgasm I don’t have to give myself. Other than that, open to negotiation.

Let me know if you’re game,
Hayden.

About the Author:
T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia.

With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap. Her lack of “plan” has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history. She’d tell you all about it, but the statute of limitations hasn’t expired yet. But all those crazy twists and turns have led her to a career she loves—writing romantic comedy.

When she isn’t filling pages with sassy and sexy characters with attitude, she’s living her own reality show in the ‘burbs of Melbourne with her American husband, two teenage children, and her fur child—Woodley.

She loves adventure, to laugh, travel, and strives to live her life to the fullest.

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Rebel Desire
Author: LK Farlow
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 4, 2020
BLURB

As a wedding photographer, it’s no surprise that Ashley Murphy, despite her perpetual singleness, is a little in love with love.

When she catches a hunky best man checking her out while on the job, her heart all but shouts, “He’s the one”. Until he opens his mouth. Colton Banks is a cocky lawyer with a mean streak a country mile wide.

Colton prefers order to chaos. He believes there’s a time and place for everything, so when a lilac haired hottie sends him a flirtatious wink while she’s on the job, he’s less than impressed.

When she shows up at his office a week later asking for legal help, his first instinct is to send her packing. But day after day, she returns, finding new elaborate ways to break him down.

It’s not until a life-altering surprise shows up on Colton’s doorstep that things start to change. Ironically, the answer to his problem may be his incredibly annoying, free-spirited new “friend.”

Complications. Lust. Attraction. Love.

As their tenuous friendship grows, the chemistry between them becomes a raging inferno, and everyone knows you can’t deny your rebel desires.

EXCERPT

“Hello, this is Ashley.”
“Am I supposed to find your antics clever?” A growly yet refined voice barks in my ear. Colton.
“Actually, you’re supposed to say ‘thank you.’ Or are you one of those men who feels emasculated by receiving flowers?”
“No, I’m the kind of man who isn’t swayed by paltry attempts at bribery.”
Why would fate assign me such a monumental jackass as my soulmate? Clearly the universe has a sick sense of humor. “Good thing I’m not trying to bribe you, then,” I say, lying through my teeth.
“Aren’t you, though? Muffins, flowers, what’s next? Maybe a box of chocolates? Half of your peanut butter sandwich? I’m not your grade school crush. I’m a professional, Miss Murphy, and only work with other professionals, which you have demonstrated time and time again, you are not.”
I tap the speaker button on my phone and toss it down on my desk. This man makes me insane. “You are truly the most condescending man I’ve ever met. You don’t know me well enough to have formed these kinds of opinions about me.”
In all honesty, his extreme dislike of me hurts. A lot. Especially with how my heart and soul long for his. He means for his words to dissuade me—to break me—but every single insult and rebuff only makes me want to prove him wrong that much more.
“They say the truth hurts, Miss Murphy. It’s not my fault you’re ill-equipped to handle the pain.”
I clench my fists so tightly my nails dig into my palms, leaving behind little crescent-shaped marks. This man makes me want to commit felonies—you know, like murder. I wonder, since he’s my soulmate, could it be classed as a crime of passion? “I can handle everything you dish out and more.”
Colton makes a noise low in his throat, and I can nearly picture the sneer on his face. “Is that a threat?”
“It’s a promise, Mr. Banks. Do your worst; I’ll not only take it—I’ll return it back tenfold.”
“You don’t have it in you.” He laughs cruelly, the dark tenor of it winding around my heart in inky swirls.
“I’m far stronger than you give credit for.” Not to mention, my plan of attack is to repay his barbs with kindness. Something tells me that will knock him off guard far more than volleying back with harsh words or petty.
“You mistake strength for stupidity.”
“And you underestimate me.” I end the call before he can reply, crumpling down to my desk chair with my heart thundering and my pulse racing.
I’ll show that sexy, arrogant jackass exactly who he’s up against. I may be quirky and kind, but those two qualities are exactly what give me an edge. Colton Banks is used to sharks and snakes, but he’s about to be brought to his knees by a creature far more deadly—a woman scorned.

AUTHOR BIO

Review – One Click Love by T. Gephart

One Click Love; Hot in the City #2 
(A standalone within a series)

by: T. Gephart

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

T. Gephart writes great comedy intermixed with wonderful humility. Her characters always speak to me and I’m never, ever disappointed when I pick up one of her books. One Click Love is a win from cover to the very last page.

Mack is the ultimate hero in a battalion chief; sweet, sexy, brave, compassionate, caring, loyal, etc…A total catch, but his ex-wife (who is a total nutcase) left him a little shy from jumping back into the dating world. When he is set up on a dating site, as a gift for his birthday, he wasn’t going to answer any of the notifications, that is until one particular match caught his eye, Hayden Green.

Hayden is newly divorced, on paper anyway. She’s been separated longer and emotionally distanced even longer before that. She is ready to jump back into the single scene, but looking for something short term. She’s already lost herself to a man, given away her self esteem and any chance of a future with her selfish ex. So when Mack’s profile pop’s up he’s just too sexy not to try and match up with, but when he actually answers she has no idea that he’s just the man she wasn’t looking for.

Neither Hayden nor Mack were looking for something long term when they met up for their first date, but after a night that neither of them would ever forget it was just too hard to imagine placing them into the one night stand category. Is it possible to find the perfect person through a dating site, especially when they have both been down the relationship road before?

Click on One Click Love and find out just how perfect these two matches really are for one another. You will not be disappointed.

Synopsis:

What’s the worst present you can get for your 45th birthday? An online dating profile you didn’t want. And Mack was all set to delete it, until a message from Hayden lands in his inbox.

Hayden decided the best way to celebrate ending a long, loveless marriage was to have a one-night stand. Pity she didn’t count on a sexy, fire chief foiling her plans.

Neither of them wanted a relationship, such a shame fate didn’t get the memo.

Review – When the Walls Come Down by Aly Martinez and M. Mabie

53194583. sy475

When the Walls Come Down 
(A standalone)

by: M. Mabie and Aly Martinez

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

If you are looking for a feel good, completely adorable, quirky romantic read this is the book!! This is the book I needed in my life right at this moment! When the Walls Come Down will fill you with all the warm fuzzies and make you believe in destiny. This is your Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks “You’ve Got Mail” (steamier version) kind of romance.

Shane Warren is the absolute best – quirky, awkward, vulnerable and uniquely weird which is absolutely everything I LOVE about a really good memorable hero. He is currently working for his sister, a job he loves, but he’s gotten comfortable. Something he’s done in every aspect of his life after his divorce. He hasn’t dated or really ventured out of the few blocks around his apartment, until his new neighbor moves in next door.

Maggie Light has moved across the country to jump start her life. She didn’t want to end up stuck like her mother and never achieve anything beyond marriage and motherhood. Beginning a new job away from her family is what she needs and meeting her new, sexy neighbor is the cherry on top.

They hit it off just like peas and carrots and Maggie and Shane have a lot in common, so much in fact that they are fighting for the same job. Unfortunately, they both can’t keep it. While they might both be fighting to jump start their new beginnings, they are at different points in their lives so those reasons for a new beginning are very different. It all comes down to, what is more important…a new job or a new relationship?

Aly Martinez and M. Mabie need to team up more and give us this kind of feel good read because this is the warm blankets, fuzzy socks, and cute kittens all rolled into one kind of book.

Synopsis:

Did you ever hear the joke about the guy whose wife cheated on him with his best friend? So he quit his job, moved into his parents’ basement, and gained fifty pounds?

No? Because that wasn’t a joke. It was my life.

Four years later, I’m back with a dream job, a killer apartment, and a set of abs that are better than ever.

So, when Maggie Light, a stunning, snarky blonde moves in next door, and we spend the hottest weekend of our lives together, I think this could be the greatest comeback story ever.

That is until I realize Maggie has moved to town to do one thing—steal my job.

Maybe this isn’t a comeback story after all. Maybe this is war—one I intend to win.

What I never anticipated was that maybe I’d rather win her.

Perhaps, if I’m lucky, the universe has finally run out of jokes and I can somehow win both.

Release Boost – Jock Blocked by Pippa Grant

RELEASE BOOST
Title: Jock Blocked
Series: Copper Valley Fireballs #1
Author: Pippa Grant
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 19, 2020

BLURB

She can’t let him score…

Call it superstition, but when a guy bats as hot as Brooks Elliott, you don’t mess with what’s working. And what’s working is him keeping his pants zipped and doing all of his scoring on the field.

So when I hear he’s planning to ditch his V-card now that he’s been traded to baseball’s lovable losers—aka my home team and my reason for living every March through October—I do what any rational, dedicated, obsessed fan would do.

I make a plan to stop him.

But the thing about stopping him is that it requires spending time with him.

Lots. And lots. And lots of time.

And the more time I spend with him, the more I like him. Not as the guy who’s going to help save my favorite team and finally bring home a championship ring, but as the guy who’s helping me in my quest to bring back the team’s old mascot. Who also loves making pancake and bacon sandwiches. And who would do almost anything for his love of the game.

But after all this time of jock-blocking him…do I even have a chance?

And if I do, are we both destined to a life of celibacy in the name of winning?

Jock Blocked is a home run of a romantic comedy featuring the world’s most superstitious sports fan, baseball’s oldest virgin hero, a rogue meatball, an adorable puppy with a cussing problem, and the best lovable losers. It stands alone and comes with a happily ever after more satisfying than a game-winning grand slam.

EXCERPT

Mackenzie Montana, aka a woman on a mission

I never meant to become a criminal. But in the grand scheme of life, I don’t think I’m technically engaging in criminal behavior.
At least, if it is, you could call it a crime of passion.
And I am very passionate in my belief that while the Fireballs need to make changes to halt their record-breaking streak of being the worst losing team ever to play professional baseball, they don’t need to do it with a new mascot. Which is why I decided to take two weeks off work and fly to Florida for spring training, where I’m not saying that I’ve snuck into my home team’s ballpark after hours to steal the worst proposed mascot costume, but I’m not saying I haven’t either.
Meatballs?
They actually let a meatball make the final cut.
I needed at least another full season to get over the fact that the new Fireballs ownership killed the last mascot, and here they are, letting fans vote on replacing Fiery the Dragon with flaming meatballs.
I snort to myself while I creep through the darkened concrete hallways with a flaming meatball swallowing half of my body.
If you’re going to steal a giant meatball costume, it’s best to act like you know what you’re doing. And striding out of here with zero shame means two things—one, no one’s going to stop me, and two, even if they do, I’m incognito.
It’s the perfect crime to counter the crime of killing Fiery.
I’m one turn away from the door that I left propped open for myself after hiding out in the family bathroom after today’s game when voices drift toward me.
One male.
One female.
Neither is familiar, but as I get closer to my final turn, I realize the voices are between me and my exit.
No biggie.
I got this.
I can stroll on by, flash a thumbs-up, pretend like I’m heading out to prank the Fireballs at the team compound they’re all staying at, or to make a fast-food run for publicity.
Acting like I know what I’m doing inside this mascot costume is as easy as breathing. When you’ve seen thousands of baseball games in your lifetime, it’s not hard.
So I turn the corner.
And then I suck in a surprised breath, because that’s Brooks Elliott.
Oh. My. God.
Brooks Elliott.
The Fireballs’ newest acquisition. Like, so new he arrived yesterday. A mid-spring training acquisition, which is practically unheard of.
He plays third base, and he hits the ball like it’s evil incarnate and he’s an avenging angel and it’s his job to send that evil into another dimension.
He could be the reason we legitimately have a shot at making it to the post-season.
And I am not going to hyperventilate like I did the last time I was face-to-face with a baseball player.
Pretending to be a mascot?
I got this.
Talking to the players?
It’s like talking to the gods.

New Release – Wine Hard, Baby by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Wine Hard, Baby
Series: OHellNo #6
Author: Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 12, 2020
BLURB

From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes an Enemies-to-Lovers, Romantic Comedy.

CAUTION: CONTAINS HOT COWBOY. Do not mix with wine. Avoid watching him do shirtless labor on hot days.

SIDE EFFECTS MAY INCLUDE: Feeling of extreme temptation, excessive drooling over his abs, elevated heart rate, and loss of coherent thoughts when in his presence.

My name is Camila Clark. And that sexy cowboy right there? The one with the devilish smile, twinkling brown eyes, and tattoos on his muscular arms? He’s Jed, the guy I turned down flat back in Texas. He just showed up here in Oregon at the winery where I work.

The question is why?

Not that it really matters. I have my reasons for staying away from all that manly temptation. Reasons he can’t possibly understand but seems determined to punish me for.

But the more I fight him, the more I learn about this mysterious, hot-as-hell cowboy. I just don’t know how much longer I can keep pretending to hate him.

The problem is, I’m technically engaged to a guy I’ve never met.

Melissa Foster, New York Times bestselling author

Forking Around, a flirty and sexy romantic comedy standalone from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas, is available now!

ForkingAround300 (1).jpg

A Cinderella story with a hot boss so charming even a fairy godmother couldn’t do better.

Everyone thinks Dax Marshall is a prince of a guy. And he’s definitely charming.

But Jane has enough going on without adding a torrid fling with the boss to her life. Between her father’s illness, her wicked-ish stepmother, her little sister’s teenage drama, and the co-workers who depend on her—she can’t handle another mess.

No matter how tempting and gorgeous the mess may be. Or how messy he wants to get with her.

Dax has spent his life being very serious about only one thing: proving you can be successful while still having a helluva good time. But he’s just met the one woman who might break his I-can-charm-anyone streak. She’s actually taking him seriously…and she seriously thinks they have nothing in common and can’t be together.

Maybe he’s the one who needs a new view of happily ever after. It’s time to stop forking around.

Review

Read Kay’s Review: Forking Around

 

 

 

Excerpt:

He was the new strawberry pie in her life. She’d had one taste of Zoe’s strawberry pie and that had been it. Nothing else would ever measure up. She would never not crave it. She would never pass up a chance to have it on her tongue.

Yeah, Dax Marshall was that.

And then some.

He pulled back, breathing hard, staring down at her.

She quickly put her hand over his mouth. “Don’t talk. Talking is the wrong choice right now.”

She was going to have to deal with the boss thing soon enough. And the millionaire thing. And the he-doesn’t-live-here-and-isn’t-staying thing. And all the other crap she always had to deal with that made this impossible.

But for another minute—or maybe ten—she didn’t want to think about any of that. And if he talked, that would be very difficult.

He pulled in a breath, gave her a short nod that she interpreted as okay, no talking and she moved her hand.

Which was the right choice, because he leaned in as he slid his hand up the side of her body, skimming over her hip, waist, the side of her breast, up and into her hair. Then he cupped the back of her head and lowered his mouth to hers again.

This time he kissed her.

And seriously, she’d give up strawberry pie for this.

They made out like that for long, delicious minutes.

When he finally took his mouth from hers, it was to slide it along her jawline, his beard causing goose bumps to trip down her arms and tighten her nipples. In her ear he said gruffly, “I have to talk now.”

She laughed lightly. “I didn’t think it would last for even this long, really.”

“Well, I do love using my mouth this way too.” He dragged his lips along the side of her neck.

Her nipples got even tighter, begging for him to drag those lips down there.

“But I can’t resist saying—” He lifted his head. “You are the most delicious thing I’ve ever tasted.”

She grinned. “Well… same.”

A very sexy kind of surprised but superhot look crossed his face. “What about pie?”

She sighed. “Pie is amazing.”

“But the kissing…” he prompted.

She knew she shouldn’t tell him the truth. The guy’s ego didn’t quit. Already. But she found herself nodding. “I was really hoping you’d be bad at it. Like terrible. Like no-worry-of-dirty-dreams bad,” she said.

He arched an eyebrow. “And?”

She sighed. “It was really good.”

“Dirty-dreams-tonight good?” His voice was rumbly and low.

She nodded. “Unfortunately.”

He looked very pleased by her answer. His mouth curled up. “Maybe we should combine the kissing and the pie.”

Her eyes widened before she could stop it. That would be… holy crap she would never recover. “I can’t even imagine that, honestly. I might die.”

“You can always count on Erin Nicholas for fun, sexy contemporary romance.”

Melissa Foster, New York Times bestselling author

Forking Around, a flirty and sexy romantic comedy standalone from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas, is available now!

ForkingAround300 (1).jpg

A Cinderella story with a hot boss so charming even a fairy godmother couldn’t do better.

Everyone thinks Dax Marshall is a prince of a guy. And he’s definitely charming.

But Jane has enough going on without adding a torrid fling with the boss to her life. Between her father’s illness, her wicked-ish stepmother, her little sister’s teenage drama, and the co-workers who depend on her—she can’t handle another mess.

No matter how tempting and gorgeous the mess may be. Or how messy he wants to get with her.

Dax has spent his life being very serious about only one thing: proving you can be successful while still having a helluva good time. But he’s just met the one woman who might break his I-can-charm-anyone streak. She’s actually taking him seriously…and she seriously thinks they have nothing in common and can’t be together.

Maybe he’s the one who needs a new view of happily ever after. It’s time to stop forking around.

New Release – The Breakup Artist by Lila Monroe

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: The Breakup Artist
Series: Cupids #4
Author: Lila Monroe
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 11, 2020
BLURB

It’s a game of exes and oooohs! Enjoy the sizzling new standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!

I’m an expert in break-ups. From the slow fade, to extreme ghosting, to, ‘but you never said I couldn’t send pics of my junk to your step-sister on Instagram’ – I’ve seen it all… and built a mini-empire along the way. My blog, the Break-Up Artist, uses my past heartache to help people move on – and avoid weeping on the floor at 3am consuming their body weight in spray cheese and Oreos. Ahem.

Now, I have a new job that could mean the big-time: helping a famous Hollywood it-couple navigate their tricky break-up. Except not everyone wants them Splitsville. The movie studio needs to keep them together to promote their big movie, and they’ve sent someone to make sure I fail in my first VIP gig.

Wes Baxter. Also known as my ex.
Also ALSO known as, the guy who broke my heart so thoroughly, I had to turn myself into a self-help guru just to get over him.

I’m determined to follow my own advice (no drooling over Wes’s perfect abs, or remembering how he rocked my world) but being trapped together at a luxe country retreat isn’t helping things… And neither is Wes’s early-morning naked swim habit. Soon, love is in the air, the sparks between us are hotter than ever, and I’m seriously questioning my ‘no backsies’ policy.

Wes swears he’s changed. He wants to try again, and he’s got an annoyingly sexy way of convincing me. But can second chances really work? Or has the Break-Up Artist finally met her match?

Review – Jock Blocked by Pippa Grant

No photo description available.

Jock Blocked; Copper Valley Fireballs 
(Interconnected standalone within a series)

by: Pippa Grant

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Jock Blocked is a unicorn pinata jammed full of glittery happiness and fun!! I laughed, giggled, and snorted unlady like through the entire book and loved every minute of it!

Pippa’s wacky characters are some of my absolute favorite and Jock Blocked is sprinkled with my all of my favorite ones which now include Mackenzie and Brooks. Interconnected with Pippa’s other worlds Jock Blocked can be read as a complete standalone, but you may spit your coffee out while laughing at the references to her other books if you have read them, but that is my own opinion.

With the jokes, laughs, and ROTF guffaws aside, there is also a loving story tucked in between about one super fan who never gives up and one baseball player that has lost his shiny way as to why he still plays baseball.

Jock Blocked, no matter if you are a fan of baseball, any sport, or really just any passion, will make you a believer and give you hope. Mackenzie has this inner glow, hope, and dedication that is unlike any I’ve ever run across. I want to be around her so I can feel better about anything that has gone wrong. She just never gives up and I love that fighting spirit.

Brooks, and his family, is the perfect mix of sweet and crazy (which is totally my kryptonite). A man who loves every nuance of his woman who is also sweet and crazy is literally the best. It won’t take much to fall in love with this baseball player, but more importantly, it won’t take much to fall in love with Mackenzie and her mission to keep him scoring on the field.

While Mackenzie works hard to keep her home team in her hometown, along with bringing back the team mascot she now adds to her list keeping Brooks Elliott a virgin for the baseball season. She is nothing but a dedicated fan.

Brooks is ready to cash in his v-card when he gets traded to the Fireballs, but a fiesty fan is jock-blocking him at every turn. He decides to turn block her at her own game and take matters into his own hands.

Can Mackenzie resist the handsome player when he insists on spending so much time with her and can Brooks improve his game if he actually listens to the fanatic fan? Welcome to Copper Valley.

Image may contain: possible text that says 'Why is it always the crazy ones that are SO damn hot? #jockblocked #May19 #pippagrant'

Synopsis:

She can’t let him score…

Call it superstition, but when a guy bats as hot as Brooks Elliott, you don’t mess with what’s working. And what’s working is him keeping his pants zipped and doing all of his scoring on the field.

So when I hear he’s planning to ditch his V-card now that he’s been traded to baseball’s lovable losers—aka my home team and my reason for living every March through October—I do what any rational, dedicated, obsessed fan would do.

I make a plan to stop him.

But the thing about stopping him is that it requires spending time with him.

Lots. And lots. And lots of time.

And the more time I spend with him, the more I like him. Not as the guy who’s going to help save my favorite team and finally bring home a championship ring, but as the guy who’s helping me in my quest to bring back the team’s old mascot. Who also loves making pancake and bacon sandwiches. And who would do almost anything for his love of the game.

But after all this time of jock-blocking him…do I even have a chance?

And if I do, are we both destined to a life of celibacy in the name of winning?

Jock Blocked is a home run of a romantic comedy featuring the world’s most superstitious sports fan, baseball’s oldest virgin hero, a rogue meatball, an adorable puppy with a cussing problem, and the best lovable losers. It stands alone and comes with a happily ever after more satisfying than a game-winning grand slam.

COVER REVEAL
Title: Rebel Desire
Author: LK Farlow
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Cover Design: Jersey Girl Design
Photo: Lindee Robinson
Release Date: June 4, 2020

BLURB

As a wedding photographer, it’s no surprise that Ashley Murphy, despite her perpetual singleness, is a little in love with love.

When she catches a hunky best man checking her out while on the job, her heart all but shouts, “He’s the one”. Until he opens his mouth. Colton Banks is a cocky lawyer with a mean streak a country mile wide.

Colton prefers order to chaos. He believes there’s a time and place for everything, so when a lilac haired hottie sends him a flirtatious wink while she’s on the job, he’s less than impressed.

When she shows up at his office a week later asking for legal help, his first instinct is to send her packing. But day after day, she returns, finding new elaborate ways to break him down.

It’s not until a life-altering surprise shows up on Colton’s doorstep that things start to change. Ironically, the answer to his problem may be his incredibly annoying, free-spirited new “friend.”

Complications. Lust. Attraction. Love.

As their tenuous friendship grows, the chemistry between them becomes a raging inferno, and everyone knows you can’t deny your rebel desires.

EXCERPT

“He’s mine.”
The pistons in my mind misfire. “Your what?”
“My son,” Colton says, straightening in his chair, his blue eyes hard on my green.
I swallow roughly.
My soulmate has a son. For a split-second sadness engulfs me—sadness that someone else gave him the greatest gift there is—but just as quickly a radiant burst of happiness replaces it. The universe is granting me a gift and deeming me worthy of being in this adorable kid’s life. I only wonder why Colton hasn’t ever mentioned his son before?

Series: Gone South #2
Author: Alicia Hunter Pace
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 5, 2020
BLURB

Welcome to Merritt, Alabama, where summers are lazy, tea is sweet, and guests are always welcome.

Thirteen years ago, Tolly Lee cost Nathan Scott his future in the NFL—and he’s never forgiven her for it. Tolly was only sixteen when she led college senior Nathan to believe she was older, but she never imagined he’d want to pursue a long-distance relationship. When he learned the truth, they both paid a heavy price…

Tolly didn’t think she’d ever see Nathan again. Now that he’s returned and taken a job as a high school football coach, it’s only a matter of time before the good citizens of Merritt find out she’s the one who cost their hometown hero his future. When that happens, Tolly will lose everything she’s worked for.

Nathan wouldn’t have taken the job if he’d known Tolly had set up shop on Main Street – but he can’t back out now. When an orphaned teenager needs mentoring to get on the right path, Nathan will have to form an uneasy truce with Tolly. As old resentments resurface, so do old attractions. After all this time, the end zone might finally be in sight….

Author note: “We hope you will enjoy this re-release from the Gone South series. Scrimmage Gone South, a stand alone novel, was originally published by Crimson Romance in 2013.”

EXCERPT

And before Tolly could speak another word, Nathan propelled her in front of him and drove her through the crowd like she was a trolling motor on a bass boat.
Once on the front porch, she spoke the first words she’d said to him in over a decade—thirteen years to be exact, almost to the day.
“Nathan, let me go!”
And for the first time in as many years, he answered her. “Townshend, you are coming with me.”
Townshend. She’d almost forgotten that he used to call her by her real name, not the baby name that four-year-old Harris had christened her with because he couldn’t say Townshend. No one, not even teachers, had ever called her anything but Tolly—no one but Nathan. He had called her that because that was how she’d introduced herself that night so long ago when she’d wanted to be daring and do something unexpected, instead of being the eternal good girl.
“Where do you think you’re taking me?” she demanded.
“I don’t think anything. I know we’re going to sit in my truck and have a little chat.” He pulled her down the steps, none too slow and none too gently. She stumbled and he caught her.
“Hey. Stilettos here,” she said through gritted teeth.
“That’ll teach you to wear shoes that won’t take you where you need to go.”
“I don’t need to go anywhere with you.”
He stopped dead in the middle of the sidewalk. “The day is done when I care what you need. What you are going to do is march yourself over to my pickup truck and climb in. I’ve got some things to say to you.” He pointed down the block to where his big black truck was parked.
So, finally, after all this time. She had half expected this when he had first moved back here to replace the recently fired Merritt High head football coach. But he’d remained silent and she’d relaxed—apparently too soon.
“My car is closer,” she offered.
“So it is.” He made to move her toward his truck, but she planted her feet.
She could refuse. A carload of Methodists had just pulled up and were unloading casserole dishes. Dr. Carlyle was emerging from the house. They would save her, even though she was Episcopalian. She was sure of it.
“Townshend,” Nathan said. It was only then that she noticed just how far beyond angry he was—he was shaking livid. “Get your butt down that street and into my truck or I will make a scene that will get me fired and land us both in jail. I swear I will do it.”
She believed him. And a scene was the last thing she wanted. Airing her dirty linen in public—especially this dirty linen—would be the worst thing in Bad City. If the people of Merritt found out what she’d done, what she had cost their hometown hero, life here would be over.
But why the confrontation now? Until today, he’d seemed as eager as she to keep their past a secret. And why was he, all of a sudden, so mad? He’d been mad thirteen years ago, sure. But since, there had only been cold distance. Maybe it was the ham she’d brought that set him off. Maybe he thought pot roast was a more appropriate bereavement food. That made as much sense as anything.
She let him guide her down the street. He slowed down, though whether it was in deference to her high heels or because of his bad knee, she couldn’t say.
Nathan jerked the truck door open, picked up a playbook and knee brace from the passenger side, and threw them behind the seat. It was a long way to the running board and Tolly was not a tall woman. She pulled up her pencil skirt and started to climb. After she slipped twice, Nathan scowled at her and picked her up and threw her in. He wasn’t rough about it, but he was resolved.
He launched himself behind the wheel and turned on her all in one furious motion.
“Keep your hands off my QB-One,” he said.
What? Tolly literally felt her eyes glaze over. She was expecting a rant on her past sins, but what was this?
Nathan must have noted her perplexed expression. “Don’t even try that with me, Townshend. You can pretend to be stupid with everyone else. For reasons I cannot fathom, even Harris seems to believe you have no knowledge of football terminology. But just in case you have had a lobotomy that I am unaware of, I will be clear. Keep your hands off my first string quarterback. Seven. Kirby Lawson. Do not touch him. Ever again.”
Now she was really confused. “I don’t know what you’re talking about, Nathan.”
“Do not touch him. If you still need for somebody to think you’re the cutest little thing north of a bow on a pig’s tail, go sell yourself somewhere else. I’m sure you’d have plenty of buyers. But it’s not going to be my quarterback.”
As comprehension finally set in, heat and ice formed in her stomach and radiated outward to her heart, her hands, and finally her tongue. The ice that she always depended on to keep her emotions in check abandoned her.
“Oh, my God! Kirby is a boy. A child. He works for me. What kind of person do you think I am?”
Nathan raised his shaking hands in front of him and closed his eyes. “I think,” he said between clenched teeth as he gripped the steering wheel. “I think you are the kind of person who will lie, deceive, and pretend. I think you are the kind of person who will do whatever it takes to get attention. I think you play with people. I think they don’t come much lower than you, Townshend Harris Lee, of the Calhoun County Harrises and Lees.”
Calm. Cool. She lived by it. “You do know,” she said slowly, giving the ice time to chase the fire away, “that liedeceive, and pretend, all mean basically the same thing. You have, therefore, been redundant in your speech.”
Nathan hit the steering wheel with his fist. “You know plenty about all three.”
“I was not flirting with that child.”
“I saw you. I saw you holding his hand, hugging him, and smiling like he was the best thing on Earth—doing whatever it took to make him think you are the most amazing thing to ever priss her expensive ass across a courtroom floor.” Nathan’s voice then turned to a mocking falsetto that might have been funny under different circumstances. “‘Kirby, honey, call me if you need anything. Or if you just want to talk. I mean it.’”
There was anger beneath the frozen calm but Tolly no longer felt it. “What you saw, was me—an adult woman—offering comfort to a devastated boy who has lost the only stable person in his life.”
“Adult, huh? Is that what you are these days?”
“You know very well I was not flirting with Kirby.”
“I am an authority, maybe even the authority on what Townshend Lee will and will not do. If there was a journal called Townshend Harris Lee and her Lying Cheating Scheming Debutante Ways, they would hire me to be the editor. I would be the keynote speaker at every conference. I would lead panel discussions.”
“Nathan, I was sixteen years old.” Tolly’s voice was quiet.
“And therein was the problem, wasn’t it?”
Tolly picked up her bag from the floorboard. “I’m getting out of this truck, Nathan, and I am going to get in my car and go back to work.” Just to show she was in control, she removed a lipstick from her purse and took her time reapplying it. Then she carefully blotted her mouth with a tissue. “You know very well I have no unsavory intentions toward Kirby. If he thinks well of me, it’s not because of my scheming ways, as you so eloquently put it. It’s because I’ve been good to him. It’s because I pay him more than it’s worth to put up my Christmas decorations and because I invented a dozen odd jobs last spring so he’d have money for the prom. Your implications are not only insulting but preposterous. Though I wouldn’t expect you to care about either one. If you ever feel the need to have a reasonable conversation with me about our past, I will do that. But I will never again sit still and let you accuse me of something like this.”
“Stay away from my quarterback. I’ll be watching you.”
Without acknowledging that Nathan had spoken again, Tolly hiked up her skirt, jumped down from the monstrous truck, and clicked on her high heels all the way back to her Mercedes. She never looked back once.
And that was hard.

Cover Reveal – When The Walls Come Down by Aly Martinez and M. Mabie

wtwcd CR banner

When the Walls Come Down, an all-new neighbors to lovers romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez and M. Mabie is coming June 4th and we have the gorgeous cover!

When the walls come down cover

Did you ever hear the joke about the guy whose wife cheated on him with his best friend? So he quit his job, moved into his parents’ basement, and gained fifty pounds?

No? Because that wasn’t a joke. It was my life.

Four years later, I’m back with a dream job, a killer apartment, and a set of abs that are better than ever.

So, when Maggie Light, a stunning, snarky blonde moves in next door, and we spend the hottest weekend of our lives together, I think this could be the greatest comeback story ever.

That is until I realize Maggie has moved to town to do one thing—steal my job.

Maybe this isn’t a comeback story after all. Maybe this is war—one I intend to win.

What I never anticipated was that maybe I’d rather win her.

Perhaps, if I’m lucky, the universe has finally run out of jokes and I can somehow win both.

DTF. Support your local girl gang!
Me and my dirty, tough female besties were hell—and tacos on wheels.
Who knew that my homemade Shizzle Sauce would be the key ingredient to my happily ever after?
Destiny had a wicked sense of humor—that was for sure.
After surviving a toxic relationship, I vowed to never let myself be controlled by a man again.
With the help of my girl gang, I was rebuilding my life—one taco at a time. My trusty snack wagon—The Pink Taco Truck—hadn’t steered me wrong yet.
This time, it led me straight to a hottie restaurant owner with a sexy Australian accent, who just so happened to love my secret sauce.
He made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. But that wasn’t the only thing I was unable to turn down.
Jay was everything I could ever want in a man, but he wasn’t without heartache of his own. In fact, he’d been around the world, and he had the baggage to prove it.
Good thing I was always up for an adventure!

AUTHOR BIO

Kat Addams is a forever twenty-nine-year-old fashionista following her lifelong dream of writing contemporary romance inspired by the exotic men she meets in her worldly travels. At least, that’s what she would like for you to think. She’s certainly not a stay-at-home mom indulging in excessive daydreaming, frozen pizzas, an unhealthy addiction to purchasing pajamas, and one too many cocktails on the regular. That’s some other romance author. The poor thing probably has to sneak away upstairs to write her dirty stories! What would her family think? Thankfully, that’s not Kat!

Blog Tour – Looking to Score by CoraLee June and Carrie Gray

Looking to Score by CoraLee June and Carrie Gray is LIVE and FREE with KU!

Looking to Score is like the book equivalent of comfort food- goes down easy and leaves you feeling full and content. This book is funny, charming, heart-warming, insanely clever, and JUST what we need. I simply LOVED it and could not put it down.” ~The Romantic Rush Blog

He’s like literally the worst.

Oakley Davis is the star running back at our University, and the reason I’ve broken my vow to avoid the college party scene. Thanks to a mixup with my advisor, I’m now serving my Public Relations internship as a glorified babysitter to the party-hard football players.

Specifically, Oakley.

He’s impossible to manage. His Instagram is full of half-naked, drunk photos and he’d rather attend parties than practice. His brand needs some serious work, and when he’s not driving me insane, he’s sleeping his way through the entire female population.

But I’m determined. I have plans to graduate a semester early and nothing or no one will get in my way. I’m a Virgo, after all. Oakley Davis might be a privileged, cocky, football star, but I’m Amanda Matthews; and I’ll do whatever it takes to get my A.

I have to make sure I don’t end up falling in love with the idiot, first.

I have always loved to read. In kindergarten, I was the weird kid sitting in the reading nook by myself instead of trying to get more snacks. I’m excited to be putting my own voice on the page and watching a story I helped create come to life. I still love to read, but I also really like snacks.

I grew up in Chicago but recently moved back to the Dallas area where I live with my husband and son.

I have my Bachelor of Science in Biology. I spent a year researching chimpanzees and gorillas while I was in Chicago and then I spent another two months on a chimpanzee sanctuary trying to convince headstrong chimps to cooperate. Pro tip – grapes are a pretty hot bargaining tool. They work wonders with my toddler too.

Review – Forking Around by Erin Nicholas

Forking Around; Hot Cakes #2 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Erin Nicholas

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The sweetest, strawberriest, make you feel good addition to the Hot Cakes series! I loved this book from the berry beginning to the berry end!

Jane is addicted to everything sweet, especially strawberry’s. It is her one vice in a world that is filled with responsibility. Jane goes to work, takes care of her ailing father, looks after her younger sister, cleans the house her stepmother lives in, and barely has time for herself. She needs a fairy godmother and a night out with a good looking Prince. Until that happens, stopping at her best friends bakery to pick up her favorite strawberry flavored treats is her one indulgence since she doesn’t get out to do much else.

When Dax Marshall, the epitome of fun himself, arrives on the scene at Hot Cakes he immediately zones in on Jane. He is taken in by her dedication to those around her and her love of sweet things. He also wants to introduce a little (or a lot) of fun into her life, he decides he wants to be her Prince Charming to her life of being Cinderella.

Jane lives in a land of responsibility and Dax lives in a land of fun. On paper they seem like opposites, but as they get to know one another, they discover they are more alike than they are opposites.

You are going to LOVE Forking Around. Dax is completely irresistible, the total fun package and every sweet morsel of him is loveable and amazing. Dax turns toilet cleaning into a good time which makes him my favorite of favoritist book boyfriends ever!!!

Synopsis:

A Cinderella story with a hot boss so charming even a fairy godmother couldn’t do better.

Everyone thinks Dax Marshall is a prince of a guy. And he’s definitely charming.

But Jane has enough going on without adding a torrid fling with the boss to her life. Between her father’s illness, her wicked-ish stepmother, her little sister’s teenage drama, and the co-workers who depend on her—she can’t handle another mess.

No matter how tempting and gorgeous the mess may be. Or how messy he wants to get with her.

Dax has spent his life being very serious about only one thing: proving you can be successful while still having a helluva good time. But he’s just met the one woman who might break his I-can-charm-anyone streak. She’s actually taking him seriously…and she seriously thinks they have nothing in common and can’t be together.

Maybe he’s the one who needs a new view of happily ever after. It’s time to stop forking around.

Review – The Breakup Artist by Lila Monroe

50828542. sy475

The Breakup Artist; Cupids Book #4 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Lila Monroe

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A perfect book for the beautiful spring days ahead. Lila Monroe wrote a wonderful lighthearted read about second chances in The Breakup Artist.

Katie is known as “The Breakup Artist”, between her blog, clientele, and book soon to be released on the subject of letting go and breaking up amicably. Having been ghosted in a relationship herself years before and never really getting closure, she has made it her goal to seek that out for her clients and do it without baggage.

When she runs into her ex, Wes, whom she hasn’t seen since the moment he ghosted her, she not only realizes she may not have come to terms with her feelings, but she also hates realizing that her success is all due to his leaving. When they are forced to work together and she takes a closer look at everything she has been avoiding for the past several years, the breakup artist may not follow her own advice.

This entire book is light and fun, which I love about Lila’s books, but it is also a concept I wholeheartedly believe in. Things happen for a reason, people come into and out of our lives for a reason and help shape who we become at any specific time. We all have the power to grow by who we meet and if you have a chance to give someone a second chance it can display that growth and teach each other what we’ve learned by growing in wisdom and love.

Synopsis:

Love romantic comedies? Enjoy the sizzling new standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!

I’m an expert in break-ups. From the slow fade, to extreme ghosting, to, ‘but you never said I couldn’t send pics of my junk to your step-sister on Instagram’ – I’ve seen it all… and built a mini-empire along the way. My blog, the Break-Up Artist, uses my past heartache to help people move on – and avoid weeping on the floor at 3am consuming their body weight in spray cheese and Oreos. Ahem.

Now, I have a new job that could mean the big-time: helping a famous Hollywood it-couple navigate their tricky break-up. Except not everyone wants them Splitsville. The movie studio needs to keep them together to promote their big movie, and they’ve sent someone to make sure I fail in my first VIP gig.

Wes Baxter. Also known as my ex.
Also ALSO known as, the guy who broke my heart so thoroughly, I had to turn myself into a self-help guru just to get over him.

I’m determined to follow my own advice (no drooling over Wes’s perfect abs, or remembering how he rocked my world) but being trapped together at a luxe country retreat isn’t helping things… And neither is Wes’s early-morning naked swim habit. Soon, love is in the air, the sparks between us are hotter than ever, and I’m seriously questioning my ‘no backsies’ policy.

Wes swears he’s changed. He wants to try again, and he’s got an annoyingly sexy way of convincing me. But can second chances really work? Or has the Break-Up Artist finally met her match?

Find out in the sizzling new romantic comedy from USA Bestselling author, Lila Monroe!
