Review – 10 Signs You Need to Grovel by Kelly Siskind

10 Signs You Need to Grovel (Bower Boys #2)

10 Signs You Need to Grovel; Bower Boys #2
(Interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: January 30, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Small Town Romance

Author: Kelly Siskind

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I love these Bower boys and I totally love the concept of second chances at life after being hidden away by the witness protection program. Like the question of; do you keep living the new life you were given by the government or do you reclaim your old one? Then if you do take back your old life, how do you even begin to explain where you’ve been and how you left? This is the second book in this series and can be read as a standalone, but I think it was enjoyable knowing the background and Bower family from the first.

For Desmond Bower, he had a bright future ahead of him and the girl of his dreams on his arms. The night his life was turned upside down was originally the night he was going to ask Sadie to marry him, but he decided to wait…unfortunately he never got another chance or even got a chance to explain why he and his family disappeared. Desmond was gone for ten years and it isn’t until they are released from the program that he discovers that he has a son and once again Desmond’s life is turned upside down, but for entirely different reasons. This time he won’t leave her side, or at least his son’s and if there is a chance with his first love, he won’t wait to tell Sadie how he feels.

Desmond took a dive off the deep end when his life imploded. He made a lot of mistakes when he basically thought it was over, but I adored reading his personal growth from the Bower blacksheep to the sweet family man he was under all the badly done tattoos. He always put his son first, and I can’t tell you how many times I teared up during their father-son conversations, and Sadie was a very close second. He was a giant marshmallow under his tough looking exterior and I loved that duality about him.

This book is told entirely from Desmond’s POV which is fun getting completely into all of his thoughts and while I suppose it could be frustrating not knowing what exactly Sadie is thinking, I think Kelly did a great job through Sadie’s actions and emotions to let us know what Sadie was thinking.

I’m looking forward to the next brother as he takes back his life and what obstacles he will face stepping back into the life he left. This series is so good.

Review – No Such King by Coralee June

No Such King (Bloody Royals, #1)

No Such King; Bloody Royals #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: January 22, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Forbidden/Reverse Harem/Royal/Arranged Marriage Romance

Author: Coralee June

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
ALL THE STARS!!! I already want more because I can’t stop thinking about every little nugget in this book. I was swept away and totally lost while reading. I had no idea what time or practically what day it was when I had to pull my head back out of the book. Yes, I was that completely lost within the pages. Saying I loved it doesn’t seem worthy enough.

I’ve been dying to return to the Kingdom of Aldrich after I read the prequel and No Such King broke my expectations out of the water. Lady Christine Abernathy was sent away at the end of the prequel to protect her life, but now that the King is dead she’s been summoned back. However, she had no idea what the former Queen had in mind when she stepped back into Aldrich or she might never have returned. There is darkness in the halls and evil reminders she’d rather never think of again, but when she’s told she will marry Prince Augustus, the new King, Christine has little choice but to stay. I wasn’t sure whether to like Queen Isabella or hate her, perhaps a little of both.

Christine is quite different than when she left years ago and I loved how each new part of her molded to the three different men in her life. While the girl of the past intrigued August, Atticus, and Leo, the woman she is now knocks each of them to their knees and they honestly are thrown by it. Christine may have loved August and been his best friend when they were young, but they have both changed in the years she’s been gone. Christine is a phoenix and they were expecting a dove. It’s great.

August has great character growth and I love that he steps into the role he was born into, but he wishes that his fiancée was a sweet quiet girl, the girl from his youth…sorry, August, that girl is dead. The joyful girl that Christine once was now has darkness flowing through her veins and Atticus sees the woman behind the royal clothes. Everytime August gets hit with a new truth I could just imagine his huge anime eyes…and speaking of huge things on August….that opening…whew!!

Atticus is the devil’s advocate and I loved all of his wiley ways. Christine has a pull towards him for sure, but she also has a duty to uphold and I think she realizes that giving into Atticus will unleash all of her inner demons. Sort of a Hades and Persephone vibe I felt from them, truly delicious. I’m looking forward to getting even more of him and what he will bring to this story, I can’t wait.

Then there is her shadow, Leo. The man who seems to push her away at every turn, but also has a savior’s complex. Christine dreams of his strong arms the night her life changed, but a normal life with him is impossible, especially now that she lives in the light. Their push and pull is very angsty, but also wonderful to witness and I can’t wait for more.

This is not a reverse harem where there is an alpha among the men. This isn’t even a story where they all get along, it’s a story of angst, murder, and second chances. Where the princess doesn’t wait in the tower to be rescued, but instead she becomes the darkness and learns to save herself. No Such King is just the beginning and I’m salivating to return to the world once again.

Synopsis:
A puppet, a prince, and a playboy. One arranged marriage. Three men I must keep at arm’s length.

Atticus Dupont has been watching me from a distance, controlling my life like he controls the seedy criminal underground. He longs to own my mind, body, and soul.

Leo Winthrop is willing to do whatever it takes to protect me from the horrors of this castle, even if it means being cruel and pushing me away.

and Prince Augustus? He’s a reluctant royal that would rather sleep his way through court than be forced into an arranged marriage with me.

I fled the kingdom four years ago, planning to never return.

But the king is dead.The kingdom is in chaos.

My duty makes it impossible to walk away.

One thing I know for sure: I have to open my cracked heart, because this crown is too heavy for one lover to bear.A puppet, a prince, and a playboy. One arranged marriage. Three men I must keep at arm’s length.

This is a reverse harem romance.

The Bloody Royal series should be read in order for the greatest enjoyment.

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Nigel and Tanner made this book worth reading alone, but then then the angst of sixteen years of emotions between Matt and Brooklyn all built up…oh my heart.

I understood Brooklyn on loving her husband, Miller, forever. Never wanting to step into a hurtful past again, where she was used by her father, lost her first love, and was terrorized by her sister, but then the more she lingered in the past the more she began healing her heart, she felt torn. Probably the biggest part of healing lay in the hands of her son, Jacob. Oh my, does he steal the scene every single time he’s on the page and just wait until he meets his new best friend, it’s the cutest thing that also took my breath away.

Then we have Matt and he was just coming out of a sixteen year mourning period, ready to embark on a new phase of his life, but everyone around him is now making him question his choices. Matt is friends with Tanner and Nigel, so basically all of his chapters are full of hilarity and comic relief. It was a fantastic balance to Brooklyn’s heavier emotional chapters that pretty much tore my heart out.

But my heart, oh my heart, I could hardly take the grief over Miller. I can hardly write this now without tears falling down my face. The vast wave of emotions is huge and a huge part of why I love this series. I was laughing hysterically and bawling the next. Homecoming is amazing!!

I lost a huge piece of myself the day my husband was killed in action.
In the months that followed, I felt like my grief would swallow me whole.

I vowed to never fall in love again, especially with a marine.

It was supposed to be no strings attached and for a while it was.

Maybe it was the midnight rides on his bike or the way that only I could make him smile.
He lit me up, set my body afire, and for the first time in five years made me feel alive.

Our relationship was probably the worst gamble I’d ever taken.
But my stupid, wild heart needed him, even if our love was destined to burn me to ashes.

Read Kay’s Review: A Wild Heart

Excerpt

“I just came by to say that a couple of weeks ago was a mistake and it can’t happen again.” I chewed on my bottom lip.
What in the ever-loving hell was wrong with me?
His lip twitched as I heard what sounded like a snort come from his nose. Then he turned away from me and headed back into his stupid garage.
“Did you just snort at me?” I shrieked.
This time he shook his head and chuckled low, completely ignoring me, and went back to work on his bike like I wasn’t even there.
And because I was completely insane, I followed him into that garage and stood a foot from him. “Did you hear what I said? I said it was a mistake. The whole thing. The entire night.”
He nodded, not even looking up from his bike. “I heard you, babe.”
I swung back on the heels of my sneakers. “Well, good.” I turned on those same heels to get out of there like the fires of hell were licking at them.
“But that ain’t why you came all the way out here,” he said so lowly I almost didn’t hear him.
I turned, staring at him even as he continued to ignore me for tinkering with something on his bike. “Excuse me?”
“You heard me,” he said, standing up and finally looking at me. “You didn’t come over here just to tell a one-night stand the whole thing was a mistake.” He prowled toward me slowly, still cleaning his hands with that rag nonchalantly like he wasn’t coming toward me like a lion stalking its prey.
And I’d somehow managed to corner myself in the back of his garage, as far away as possible from the garage opening. Still, I raised my chin and straightened my spine. “Why the hell did I come all the way out here then?” I started walking myself backward even though I was putting on a brave face.
Tell me. Tell me why I came all the way out here and give it to me. Make me forget.
When he’d finally cornered me in the garage right next to what appeared to be the door to enter his house, he smiled like the cat that ate the canary and my skin prickled even as I felt my nipples harden beneath my shirt.
Oh, God.
He dropped the dirty rag and brought his hands up on either side of my head, caging me in against the wall. “Come on, baby.” He ran his nose down the length of mine and my breath caught. “We both know why you came here.”
I lifted my chin in pretend defiance when all I wanted to do was lick the seam of his gorgeous, supple lips.
“Hmmm, what did I come here for then?” I whispered, feeling dizzy and hot, a deep ache between my legs that I’d never felt before.
He smelled like motor oil and soap and God, it took everything in my power not to grind against his leg that was pushed between mine.
He gave me a barely there smile that never quite met his eyes. “You came here because you missed me,” he growled, moving further into my body even though I’d thought we were as close as two people would get.
My nipples rubbed against his chest and I could feel his heart beating against my own. Our breaths mingled as I trembled against him, but he was wrong. I hadn’t missed him. But I had missed this.
I gave him a smile of my own as I moved my hand between us and rubbed the hard length of him, squeezing at the base. “Oh, honey, I haven’t missed you a bit, but I have missed him.”
A low chuckle echoed throughout the garage that sent goose bumps across my skin before, suddenly, my body was turned, my front pushed crudely against the wall until I was forced to turn my face to the side to avoid hurting my nose.
I panted, my heart thundering wildly in my chest. He was right. This was what I’d come for. The feeling of floating. Being weightless. The high of his body touching mine. The way it made me forget. The way it made me feel alive.

Review – Wild Saint by Luna Kayne

Wild Saint (Vicious Empire, #3)

Wild Saint; Vicious Empire #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: November 1, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Mafia/Dark//Suspense/Intrigue/Second Chance Romance

Author: Luna Kayne

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Each book in this series just gets better and better!! I’m so blown away with how each book in the Vicious Empire has given me pieces of the overall puzzle which has then lead me masterfully to the next bread crumb without giving too much away. Not only has it kept me interested, but it’s kept me on the edge of my seat and completely captivated! Plus, the romance has been brilliant!

From the very beginning of Wild Saint, this book was non-stop action. Dagen and Nyla barely had a moment to catch their breaths while they were trying to survive in the wilderness after a plane crash and on the run from hitmen. This book has it all!! Action, adventure, chemistry, heat, intrigue, and second chances. It was like stepping into a romantic-adventure movie.

Their story, while full of adventure, is also sweet with the knowledge of the daughter they share between them. I won’t say much, because it should be enjoyed as a reader, but with each book it’s easy to see that family is important between these brothers and as each man has fallen in love it’s wonderful to see how easily they open their hearts to those they hold close. That is what I found sweet with Dagen and Nyla in those tender moments and appreciated in those few down times between all of the action that happened in this story.

While this book did spend more time away from the other Saint brothers than the previous two, mainly due to secluded time in the wilderness, the driving plot that has carried over from the beginning is still there and will continue into the fourth book.  This is a series and should be read in order for the best reading enjoyment. The pinnacle is coming and I can hardly wait for the next book so it will all to come together.

Synopsis:
SHE BEAT HIM AT HIS OWN GAME ONCE.
NOW IT’S ROUND TWO,
AND THIS TIME THEY’RE PLAYING DIRTY.

DAGEN SAINT
Five years ago, Nyla stole two million dollars from me and disappeared.
Now she’s resurfaced, and I’m determined to settle her debt…one way or another.
Hiking in the mountains in my underwear while being hunted by hitmen wasn’t something I thought we’d be doing when I woke up this morning, yet here we are.
If we can settle our issues and work together, we just might make it out alive—if we don’t kill each other first.

NYLA JENSEN
I conned the con five years ago, but he took something I wasn’t prepared to leave behind—my heart.
Now I’m stranded in the wilderness with the one person who has every reason to hate me, and we have no choice but to work together, or we’re dead.
It turns out surviving the elements and the men who are searching for us is the easy part.
The hard part is being close to Dagen, coming clean, and looking him in the eye. Those same eyes I see every time I look at the daughter he doesn’t know we have.

* Wild Saint is the third book in the Vicious Empire dark romance family saga series and should be read in order.

Cruel Saint (Vicious Empire, #1) Brutal Saint (Vicious Empire, #2) Savage Saint (Vicious Empire, #4)

It was supposed to be no strings attached and for a while it was.
But Weston Reeves’s grumpy soul called to my tortured one.
Maybe it was the midnight rides on his bike or the way that only I could make him smile.
He lit me up, set my body afire, and for the first time in five years made me feel alive.

Our relationship was probably the worst gamble I’d ever taken.
But my stupid, wild heart needed him, even if our love was destined to burn me to ashes.

Review – A Wild Heart by Amie Knight

A Wild Heart (Heart #4)

A Wild Heart; Heart #4
(standalone within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: October 27, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Hero/Second Chance at Love Romance

Author: Amie Knight

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
The beginning of this book I was full on in tears, commiserating in that deep well of grief, but then…oh my…oh my, oh my, my kindle just about light on fire and when the pages weren’t smoking, I was laughing out loud. This book was a complete rollercoaster and the ride was everything!!!

Weston and Emily are total fire in the sheets every single time they come together, but as much as they try to keep their one night stand to just that; no names, no connection and definitely no seeing one another again…their booty call keeps redialing. It’s also amazing how those calls also lead to things like caring and meeting family and dinners and…and…and. No matter what either one of them do, because it’s not one sided, it truly is both of them, (and I honestly cannot remember a story where both characters are grumpy about what’s happening, but it makes for comedic situations and some very hot steamy moments) but a one night stand is not supposed to turn into more, until it does.

Even though both Weston and Emily are somewhat grumpy, or sad, it’s sort of a fine line..these two are soooo good for the other, but they are so wrapped up in their sadness and grief it’s impossible to see the sunshine when they’ve both been living in the dark.

If there was ever a heart opening story that made me laugh and cry, but also full of steam and passion it’s this book. It was so good.

Synopsis:
I lost a huge piece of myself the day my husband was killed in action.
In the months that followed, I felt like my grief would swallow me whole.
My only solace was my daughter, whose bright light guided me through the darkest of times.

I never wanted to meet someone else.
I vowed to never fall in love again, especially with a marine.

It was supposed to be no strings attached and for a while it was.
But Weston Reeves’s grumpy soul called to my tortured one.
Maybe it was the midnight rides on his bike or the way that only I could make him smile.
He lit me up, set my body afire, and for the first time in five years made me feel alive.

Our relationship was probably the worst gamble I’d ever taken.
But my stupid, wild heart needed him, even if our love was destined to burn me to ashes.

Blog Tour – Irresistible Trouble by Pippa Grant

RELEASE BOOST
Title: Irresistible Trouble
Series: Copper Valley Fireballs #4
Author: Pippa Grant
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: September 29, 2022

BLURB

I, Cooper Rock, baseball god, worshipper of women, hometown hero, beloved son and brother, and owner of a well-deserved ego, have always reached for the stars. Usually in baseball.

In love? Nah. When you’ve played the field as much as I have and haven’t been bit by the bug, you’re immune.

Or so I thought until she walked back into my life.

Waverly Sweet. Pop music sensation. Universally beloved for good reason. She’s freaking awesome. Kind. Funny. Talented. Sexy as hell. Real. And still completely out of my league.

But I have been hit by the Waverly Sweet tour bus of love, tumbled head over heels, and come up in a field of Waverly-scented roses. This is it. She’s my one and only, and this time, I won’t screw it up.

I’m cleaning up my reputation. I’m ignoring the doubters. I’m channeling everything I have into proving to her that I can be the man she deserves.

No matter what else I have to sacrifice for love.

Including baseball.

Irresistible Trouble is a hilarious home run of a romcom about a baseball player whose ego is catching up to him, a pop star who’s a bit of a hot mess when the cameras aren’t looking (and sometimes when they are), and the kind of family and teammates that everyone deserves… in small doses. While this laugh-out-loud romance stands alone with a sweet-swoony HEA, you won’t go wrong if you dive into the entire Fireballs series, starting with Jock Blocked, first. And for more Cooper Rock cameos, check out Master Baker (a standalone featuring Cooper’s brother) and the Bro Code series.

The Star-crossed Lovers Duet

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ashley Jade comes a gritty, off-limits romance about mistakes, choices, and love conquering all.

He was the mysterious dark knight always swooping in to save me when I needed it most.

I was the troubled girl with scars and a bleeding heart.

He was the gifted guitarist destined for big things.

I was the small-town girl battling her demons.

He was my earth….always keeping me grounded.

And I was his sky…always just out of his reach.

Our love was everything I wished for.

Until I destroyed it.

I never thought I’d see Memphis Payne again after I broke his heart, but the stars had other plans.

Because here he is…needing me to clean up his mess this time.

Only problem is…

Doing so will break both our hearts.

They say only the strongest love can survive an apocalypse.

That if two people are meant to be, they’ll find their way back to each other.

I hope they’re right.

Bad Girl Reputation Elle Kennedy

Bestselling author Elle Kennedy returns to Avalon Bay in this sexy second chance story about two exes who can’t stay away from each other, Bad Girl Reputation.

When former bad girl Genevieve West returns home for her mother’s funeral, she’s prepared to keep her distance from her ex-boyfriend, Evan Hartley. Their history is rife with turbulence. And passion. A heck of a lot of passion…which she’s trying desperately to forget.

But it’s impossible not to run into Evan in the small coastal town where they once ran wild. And the moment she sees her gorgeous ex again, it’s clear to Gen that Evan is still as unruly, sexy, and irresistible as ever. This time around, however, she’s resolved to walk a new path. No more partying. No more foolish mistakes. Her plan is to temporarily remain in town to help her father run his business, but the second he finds somebody else, she’s out of there.

Evan has other ideas. He knows they can be good together, but he just has to convince Genevieve of that, even if it means turning over a new leaf himself. But can a bad reputation ever truly be shed? Do second chances really work? Genevieve and Evan are about to find out.

Blog Tour – A Stolen Suit by Angela Casella

A Stolen Suit by Angela Casella is now live!

Grace

My boss, the famous romance novelist, always said she’d open doors for me when I finished writing my first book. Only I have…and she hasn’t. Worse, I just met her new brand manager, and I know him.

Enoch “the Suit” Laskin made my life miserable in business school, right up until he seduced me. Then he took an internship with Parker Brand Management, working for my father, the other man I hate.

Enoch is a traitor. He’s a jerk. It’s torture to be around him.

Lucky for me, the Fairy Godmother Agency, a husband and wife P.I. team who help women in dire straits, have offered to make me their next client.

The Suit won’t know what hit him.

Enoch
I sold my soul to John Parker, and I still haven’t gotten it back.

Grace thinks I betrayed her. She’s not wrong, but she doesn’t know the full story.

Through a few twists of fate, I’ve become the caretaker of my grumpy father and teenage nephew. I’m determined to prove myself to Grace, and to them, but everything keeps going disastrously wrong.

If I were a more superstitious man, I’d think someone was out to get me.

Blog Tour – Silent Chaos by Nikki Ash

Release Date: September 29

From USA Today Bestselling author Nikki Ash comes a hate to lovers, second chance, rock star romance.

Braxton

Our senior year, I promised my girl forever. 
Forever, as it turned out, wasn’t enough. She told me so in her actions. When she took a match to my life, burning it to ash. 
I headed to LA with my band—Raging Chaos—like we always planned, while Kaylee went to college, taking my damaged heart with her. 
This was where our story was supposed to end. 
Only six years later, our lives collide again.
Kaylee is the only thing I ever loved more than music, and I wish I could hate her for it, but the line between love and hate is thin, and often straddled.
And the thing about collisions? They result in deadly debris. 

Kaylee
When you love someone, you let them go. But what I did was so much worse. 
Because instead of pushing him away, I shoved Braxton straight over the edge.
I’ve spent the past several years avoiding him, trying to make things right.
When my reputation has been dragged through the mud, and I’m given the opportunity to clean it up, I have no choice but to cross paths with him again.
Being around Braxton is a harsh reminder of the way I lit his life up in flames, but I’m not sure he knows I’ve been burned, too. 
If suffering in silence is the cost, I’ll pay the price to make things right. 
I just hope our history won’t play on repeat and he’ll see me as more than the stupid girl with the lit match. 

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

 

Silent Chaos is available in paperback, hardback, ebook, and audio, narrated by Avery Reid and Gideon Frost.

Blog Tour – Heart of Stone by K.K. Allen

NEW RELEASE
Title: Heart of Stone
Series: Camp Bexley #3
Author: K.K. Allen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 27, 2022
BLURB
Benson Bexley has always had a heart of stone.
Apparently, nothing has changed.
When he returns home after a decade gone, I recognize him right away.
How could I forget him?
He’s the same cocky flirt who slid dirty poetry to me in art class.
With the same stone-cold stare that shielded his soul from the world.
And that same sharp-edged jaw that cut straight through my heart like a dagger.
Fortunately, this time I see right through his arrogant charm.
Even better, he doesn’t remember who I am.
I have no intention of reminding him.
After all, it’s only a matter of time until his nomadic lifestyle takes him away again.
When his poetic charm strikes again, I play along.
Maybe it’s time he got a taste of his own medicine.
Revenge.
It’s not in my nature.
But Benson Bexley deserves nothing less.
It’s time for that heart of stone to shatter.

OFF SIDES by Ella Kade

RELEASES: September 26th

I never thought I’d have to start over.

Let alone my senior year in college, but without my twin brother and my best friend, my life fell apart.

Now I was finally healthy and ready to meet my new team. That was until I saw who the assistant coach was. What was my ex, pro soccer playing boyfriend doing in Willow Springs? You know what? I didn’t care. He dropped me like yesterday’s garbage after he told me nothing would break us apart. Not even an ocean.

He was a liar.

When I took the job as assistant coach, I never thought I’d see Danica Francisco. I knew her brother lived here, but not her. Why wasn’t she three hours away?

I was finally getting my life back on track after what I thought was the worst time of my life. Except now, I was thinking taking this job was the worst decision I’d ever made with the exception to cut Danica out of my life.

Too bad she looks like she wanted to kill me and put my body through a wood chipper every time she looked at me.

How was I going to survive being so close to her and yet being so far away?

Review – Heart of Stone by K.K. Allen

Heart of Stone; Camp Bexley #3
(#3 within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: September 27, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Contemporary Romance

Author: K.K. Allen

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Grab the tissues and also prepare to smack Benson Bexley around a little bit because Heart of Stone is quite the emotional roller coaster ride, but an amazing ride it was!

When this book first started I did not like Benny Bexley very much. He was a bit skeevy and totally conceited, but I also knew beneath all of that bravado he was hurting. While all of the Bexley brothers went through a great tragedy years ago, Benson lost even more, as he lost his twin brother. Carrying this grief around for the past decade, having it weigh down on his shoulders only made him harden his heart to those around him, living life on the surface and never digging deep, but as the story went along and Benson dug into those long buried emotions….wow, he is one really great guy, with a really dirty mouth. I totally fell in love.

Brooklyn Kennedy had a major crush on Benson back in high school and he had no idea she really existed, at least not the real Brooklyn. It was unstandable considering those were the darkest days of his life, but she didn’t really understand back then. Fast forward to the present and Benson is back in town, a place he never thought he’d return to, but to pass the time he signs up for an art class, one that Brooklyn is teaching. All I’ll say is Brooklyn isn’t exactly happy to see the man who doesn’t remember her one bit.

I adored Brooklyn and her smart, feisty spirit. She also has the perfect softness to loosen up Benson’s hardness. He’s been going at the same speed for so long, it isn’t until he is challenged by Brooklyn that he actually slows down and softens up. Those moments require tissues, on the flip side there are also lots of moments where Benson’s sweetly, dirty mouth comes out to play and you might need a fan to cool down instead.

Heart of Stone and Benson Bexley have become my favorite Bexley book, but I do have a feeling that the youngest brother, Cayson, has a strong shot of over taking all of his older brothers.

Synopsis:
Benson Bexley always had a heart of stone.

Blog Tour – Tysin by Brooke O’Brien

Release Date: September 23
Tysin Briggs is a player.
He’s cocky, selfish, and sexy as sin. I’ve heard the rumors, and it’s no secret, he’s just as talented in the bedroom as he is on the guitar.
As the lead guitarist for A Rebels Havoc, and my brother’s best friend, Tysin has heartbreak written all over him. We were asking for trouble sneaking around behind my brother’s back. It still didn’t stop me from spending the summer with him or from falling in love with him.
Two years have passed since he destroyed my heart, crushing it into a million pieces. A lot has changed since then, including the ring on my finger. When my brother asks for my help filling in as the manager of their sold-out tour, it’s an opportunity I can’t refuse.
I should’ve known the past wouldn’t stay in the past.
But what I didn’t count on was how hard it would be to resist him.

Amara is my dark obsession. She was promised to me in a deal she knows nothing about.

Four years ago, I sent her away to protect her from the life I live as the son of a crime lord.

Now her brother—my best friend—is dead, and though I wasn’t there for him in the end, I intend to look after his little sister.

Review – Off Sides by Ella Kade

Book Cover

Off Sides; Willow Bay #4
(#4 within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: September 26, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Second Chance/Forbidden/Sports Romance

Author: Ella Kade

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Light on drama, but not light on heavy topics. This is a second chance, forbidden romance that discusses mental health in a positive way.

Danica transfers to Willow Bay, where her brother attends school, in her senior year. It may not seem like the smartest move, especially when she’s been working her entire school career towards making the Olympics, but for her mental and physical health, it was the move she needed to make to save her life. She may be farther away from her dreams, but at least she’ll live another day to make some new ones. Her friends and family are now around her and support her every day to make sure she’s mentally and physically stronger to make it through her senior year, she just never expected to run into her ex-boyfriend at her new school. The last thing she knew about him, he was playing soccer in Spain…now he’s her asst. coach here. What is happening?

Declan never saw his life coaching girls soccer, especially when his own soccer career had barely started before he was majorly injured. Except, here he is…having moved back in with his sister, in Willow Bay, with one skill under his belt. When he didn’t think his life could get anymore out of control, Daniela walks onto the field. He basically thinks he’s dreaming. She’s supposed to be far away, living her best life and making her own dreams come true. Instead she’s thin, glaring at him, and on his soccer team. What is happening?

Both Daniela and Declan have had their lives flipped upside down by life and what I loved about this story is that they both had a strong family base to help them get back on their feet. That no matter what happened between them their mental health, along with their physical health, always came first. I appreciated a story that brought a strong foundation of how to keep this healthy first and a forbidden relationship between them second. Well done. A 4.5 read over all.

Synopsis:

Danica
I never thought I’d have to start over.

Let alone my senior year in college, but without my twin brother and my best friend, my life fell apart.

Now I was finally healthy and ready to meet my new team. That was until I saw who the assistant coach was. What was my ex, pro soccer playing boyfriend doing in Willow Springs? You know what? I didn’t care. He dropped me like yesterday’s garbage after he told me nothing would break us apart. Not even an ocean.

He was a liar.


Declan
When I took the job as assistant coach, I never thought I’d see Danica Francisco. I knew her brother lived here, but not her. Why wasn’t she three hours away?

I was finally getting my life back on track after what I thought was the worst time of my life. Except now, I was thinking taking this job was the worst decision I’d ever made with the exception to cut Danica out of my life.

Too bad she looks like she wanted to kill me and put my body through a wood chipper every time she looked at me.

How was I going to survive being so close to her and yet being so far away?
