Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Needing You Close is the second part of a duet, and picks up right where Keeping You Away ended and if you want to get the best experience out of the story you will want to read the first part of he duet first.

Now that that is out of the way….Needing You Close is the continuation of Gemma and Tyler’s story and full of everything you would could possibly hope for. A sweet, slow-burn love story that both of them deserve after waiting for so many years. Yes, there is some angst in still arriving to that point, but considering so much of their story was already filled with it in the first half of their story, I love that this half they ignored the world and lived in a rose colored bubble. A lot of the story was focused on the two of them just falling in love all over again. Don’t underestimate any author when a couple is living in a bubble, at some time it is going to pop, but oh….that bubble was so sweet while it lasted. (I know Brooke and Lyra were manically laughing when they popped that bubble though as all good authors do).

For fans of the other series, where Tyler first made his appearance, you will love catching up with former characters, but it is not necessary to have read them to still enjoy these brief references. You will also get a brief insight into the future characters and what’s on the horizon with the next duets. I’m excited to see where this entire series arc goes.

Back to Tyler and Gemma. They build on their friendship in this second half of the duet, while also looking for more as a potential future, but it is hard while Gemma tries to escape her present and Tyler is still running from his past.

Their timing just never seems right when Robert’s demands become overbearing and Gemma finally wants to call it off, but jumping right into something new with Tyler shouldn’t be right, unless Gemma never really fell out of love with him after all. Can they escape the monster in a rich suit and finally be together or are they both too late? Who will win in the end and what ever happened to Victoria? Don’t worry…all of your questions will be answered and you will love this story.

Synopsis:

I never expected to see my first love again after he left me twelve years ago. Though I’ve moved on, working with Tyler is no easy task—especially when he focuses his bedroom eyes on me. Flirting with the past is like playing with fire, and considering I’m engaged, I’m bound to get burned.

When the man I promised to marry reveals he’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing, I run to the safety of Tyler’s strong arms. As we grow closer, so do our feelings. Threats and ultimatums are made, and the revelation of the truth is enough to bring me to my knees. I’ll do whatever it takes to protect my family, even if it means shredding my heart.

Too dangerous, too unpredictable, too risky to handle alone—we need each other now more than ever.

After our world nearly collapses, there’s nothing left to do but take it back. Tyler and I team up to destroy the people who are determined to ruin our second chance at a happily ever after. Though our love is undeniable, I just hope it’s enough. We’ll fight until the end to be together—regardless of who tries to get in our way.

NEEDING YOU CLOSE is a slow-burn, angsty romance wrapped up in an intense love story. It’s book 2 in the Tyler & Gemma duet and must be read in order.

Heartbreaker 

By: Julie Kriss
Cocky Hero Club
Release Date: July 19, 2020

53249048. sy475

Holden Whittaker broke my heart when I was eighteen. What kind of guy stands up his prom date and leaves her hanging, waiting for him to show up? A total jerk, that’s who.

Never mind. I left my tiny nowhere town and moved to New York to follow my dream of becoming an actress.

Ten years later, my dream hasn’t happened, and I’m working as the office supply girl at Morgan Financial Holdings, doing my best to keep my paycheck and not get fired by the world’s most terrifying boss. Life couldn’t get much worse, until I get stuck in an elevator and guess who comes to rescue me? In a city of eight million people, it’s Holden.

Turns out he’s moved to New York, too, to be an EMT. I don’t want to see my teenage nemesis as one of the good guys, but he’s out saving lives every day, and he’s still gorgeous and cocky. I could fall for him all over again, and that’s a problem. Because it’s only a matter of time before Holden crushes me again.

My hometown heartbreaker isn’t the guy I left behind anymore. If I could stop hating him, I might belong with him. The question is, which one of us will get hurt first?

I never planned on returning to Alabama, but circumstances brought me here after years of being gone. Though Lawton Ridge is my hometown, I was hesitant to go back because of her —my sister’s best friend. The last time we were together, she was eighteen, and I was a broken soldier transitioning to civilian life.
 
Gemma wrote to me while I was overseas and we developed a bond I hadn’t anticipated. I crushed her heart the day I left, something I’ve never forgotten. But now that her dad is my new boss, life just got way more complicated.
 
Too sweet, too innocent, too good for a guy like me—I should walk away again.
 
After serving five years in prison for something I didn’t do, I trust no one, but Gemma gradually breaks down my walls and exposes the pain I’ve hidden underneath. For her own sake, I should keep my distance, but it’s nearly impossible when I hear her sweet humming while I work and she slowly draws me back in. It’s a battle I didn’t train for, and one I’ll lose if I don’t keep my restraint—especially since she’s engaged to another man.
Keeping You Away is a slow-burn, angsty romance wrapped up in an intense love story. It’s book 1 in the Tyler & Gemma duet & must be read first.

Excerpt

Kailani

My pulse jumped as I whirled around to face Jax. He leaned against the railing closest to the stairs leading down to the lower patio.

It was as if my thoughts, my memories had conjured him, but I knew the truth. It was his need to talk to me, to throw me off-kilter, to make me lose the control I liked in my life.

The energy burned between us like a livewire, just as it had been since he’d stepped foot on my resort. However, here we were alone. There was no escaping him now.

He looked so good. The rolled-up sleeves and open collar of his shirt gave a hint of the tattoos that covered his arms and body and made a woman glimpse the rebel under the polished businessman. The fact I knew every inch of him, the way he kissed, the way he possessed a woman, the way he fucked added to the anxiety now coursing through me.

“Why are you on my balcony, Jax?”

His slight smile touched his full lips, and he moved closer to where I stood. “You tell me what you were thinking about and I’ll answer your question.”

I retreated until my back hit the pillar near the balcony rail, realizing too late that I’d just put myself in a more compromising position than if I’d stayed still and stood my ground.

“Jax. This area is off-limits to guests.”

What was the point of having a lone villa away from the resort if no one respected my privacy?

“Am I only a guest to you, Kai? The last time we were alone, I thought I was the man you loved.”

Closing my eyes, I tried to hide the pain his words brought forth as well as the tears that burned my eyes.

Jax cupped my jaw, causing a startled gasp to escape my lips.

I stared into his stormy gray eyes, seeing the intensity I’d imagined so many times over the last few years.

He thumbed the wetness dampening my cheeks. “You wouldn’t cry if you didn’t still feel something for me.”

“Feeling something for you was never the problem. It’s how you felt about me.”

Confusion flashed over his face, then hurt before it disappeared and was replaced with his standard cool mask.

“You were my world. My future. My everything.”

I swallowed, not wanting to scream and tell him to fuck off. If it was true then why had he let me believe I hadn’t mattered, that his career, his ambition, his family were more important than me?

Instead of voicing my questions, I set a hand on his chest and pushed, but the man wouldn’t budge. Instead, he grabbed hold of my wrists and pinned them above my head.

A shiver shot down my spine and straight to my clit.

He loomed over me. The heat of his body, so close to mine, added fuel to the fire of need he seemed to bring forth without trying.

“You don’t believe me?”

“It doesn’t matter. It was over two years ago.” I made my best attempt to sound disinterested, knowing good and well I was failing. “We both moved on.”

His hold only tightened for a fraction of a second before loosening.

“Is that right?” Holding my gaze, he asked, “How would you know if I moved on or not? You left without looking back.”

I couldn’t tell him that I kept tabs on him. To see if he was seeing someone else or if he found someone who fit into the world he was born into.

“Leaving was the only choice I had.”

“Did you ever think that I deserved to know the reason you walked out the door?”

“It doesn’t matter. It’s in the past.”

“Past? I think not.” He leaned in, grazing his jaw along the column of my neck and causing goose bumps to pebble my skin. “I know every nuance of your body, and the way you’re reacting to me right now says there is no past to us.”

Review – At First Sight by Katy Regnery

53252318. sy475

At First Sight; A Modern Fairytale #7 
(A novella interconnected within a series)

by: Katy Regnery

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

At First Sight is a modern twist on a classic fairytale, Aladdin. Katy Regnery gives us a second chance romance of an Italian Princess, Valentina, and an Irish street rat, Ian and a love that transcends time.

This unlikely pair meets in Ireland as young teens, and like in the classic tale, they spend a night together viewing the sights through Ian’s world something the young princess would never have done from her lofty station. Circumstances and time rip them apart and it’s fifteen years until they find one another again. If the fairytale holds true, these star crossed lovers are destined to be together no matter that Ian was once a street rat.

All the classic components are woven into this modern twist while still giving At First Sight it’s own unique feel. It’s a lovely novella that fits beautifully with Katy’s fairytale collection.

Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery returns to her wildly-popular modern fairytale collection with a fresh spin on Aladdin!

I fell in love with her the first moment I saw her.
That’s the truth.

Does it sound corny?
Maybe.
Superficial?
Probably.
Impossible?
Yeah. Yeah. Okay. I know.
The thing is?
I don’t really care what you lot think.
I know what I know.
Love at first sight is possible.
I’m positive because I’ve lived it.

I am Ian Ladd,
(a street rat from the back alleys of Limerick.)

She is Valentina Yasmina De’Medici,
(Her Serene Highness.)

This is our story.

Review – Asher by Carian Cole

44535638. sy475

Asher; Ashes and Embers #6 
(#6 within a series)

by: Carian Cole

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Carian Cole never fails to write her entire heart and soul into every book. She has the power to build the angst while her characters bleed on the page and rip out your emotions while you weep for them as they reach for their HEA. I am emotionally drained every single time I read one of her books and yet I always go back for more. She is an artist at her craft.

Asher and Ember’s story has been woven throughout the entire Ashes to Embers series, doled out in bits and pieces so we knew some of their love history and some of their shattering present. However, it was just pieces.

  • What really occurred on the tragic day of Ember’s accident?
  • What was it like for Asher to live for years without his wife by his side?
  • How do you switch from spouse to caregiver back to lover again when so much time and turmoil has occurred?
  • How do you look in the mirror at a face that you don’t recognize, but everyone around you says you should?

I could go on with my questioning, but thankfully Carian answers these and so many more in this story. I was wrecked over the intensity of Ember and Asher and I believe you will be too.

This is their story, both past and present. Woven together in a way that will engage you and rip you apart at the same time.

Trying to explain to my spouse and daughter how moved I felt was intense at times, but this is the type of book that will make you cuddle up closer to those you love and hug them a little longer. These are the type of books that Carian Cole writes and it is a deeply moving experience.

Synopsis:

I should have died.
I should have been forgotten.

But I didn’t, and I wasn’t.

Living the life most women only dream about, I was madly in love with my soulmate—Asher Valentine—amazing husband, loving father, and rock’s favorite kick-ass frontman. A man who loved me every day, in every way, since we first met as teens. We were blessed with a beautiful daughter who was the light of our life. My all-female rock band was tearing up the charts.

Then tragedy struck, and I lost it all.

Now all I have is a stack of journals, an antique key, and a big black void where my memories should be.

Used to be.

And I have him—this man with wild hair, tattoos from head to toe, a soft voice, and an even softer touch that gives me butterflies. He’s clearly hopelessly in love with his wife.

I’m told that’s me.

But that wife is gone, and she took everything they once had, leaving me in her place.

A broken replacement. A new version that doesn’t quite fit.

I’m slowly falling in love with him, but will he ever truly love me? Or will he forever be in love with her, the phantom woman who haunts us both?

This is for charity. This is for fun. You are a professional. You can do it.


Those are the words that Calloway Alvarez chants to herself as she watches all the large men gather into the small room where she’ll be doing the interviews for her employer—Hero Magazine.

Honestly, she’s convinced herself that she can’t accomplish the task at hand.

That is until she hears his voice, and her head turns to see him standing there.

Louis Spurlock. Greek god. SWAT officer. Keeper of her secrets. Ultimate fantasy. Man who will break her heart.
***
Louis Spurlock has been playing nice.

He’s been biding his time, giving Calloway the space she thinks she needs.

But then he sees her taking photos of his friends in all states of undress, talking to them all as if they’re best friends, and that little thread of control he’d been managing to hold onto unravels.

Let’s change it up, she says. And the moment the words are out of her mouth, he’s stripping to his skivvies, and throwing out a challenge while he’s at it.

Calloway won’t know what hit her when he’s through playing.



But he does know one thing for sure. When it ends, she’ll be his.

Back then, I had it all.

Wicked fastball. Killer instinct. Cocky grin. Full package.

(And believe me, I knew how to score.)

My senior year, I was a first round draft pick with a two-million-dollar signing bonus. Before I could even legally buy myself a beer, I made my Major League debut.

Point is, I was invincible.

Until one day I wasn’t.

After tanking my career—during the World Series, no less—the last thing I want to do is return to my hometown, where every jerk in a ball cap has an opinion about what went wrong with my arm. So when my sister drags me back to town for her wedding, I vow to get in and out of there as quickly as possible.

Then I run into April Sawyer.

In high school we were just friends, but I’d always wanted her, and I’d never forgotten her—the red hair, the incredible smile, the crazy, reckless thing we did in the back of my truck the night we said goodbye. It’s been eighteen years, but one look at her and I feel like my old self again. I can still make her laugh, she can still take me down a notch, and when the chemistry between us explodes, it’s even hotter this time around—and I don’t want it to end.

But just when I think I’m ready to let go of the past and get back in the game, life throws me a curveball I never saw coming.

Unforgettable - Teaser 5 AN.jpg

Excerpt:

“Baseball was the only thing I ever did that made my dad proud. Without it, what’s left?”

I swallowed hard. “How about the rest of your life? All the amazing things you’re going to do and be? Maybe you can’t see them yet, but I can.”

He turned around and looked at me. Took my face in his hands. “No one has ever seen me the way you do.”

I smiled. “Maybe no one ever bothered to look beyond the surface—I mean, you’re Tyler Shaw. The surface is pretty nice to look at.”

He kissed me hard then, and deep, his tongue penetrating my lips, his hands sliding into my hair. The kiss grew hotter as he moved me backward toward the bed, shoving his pants down, and lifting me onto the sheets.

“God, April,” he whispered as his mouth traveled down my throat and his hands roamed over my skin. “I want you so much. I want you so much it scares me.”

“Why?” I arched beneath his lips and tongue and teeth and palms and fingers as they moved over my body. I put my hands in his hair.

“Because I keep imagining this life with you, this life full of things I’ve never wanted before.”

“What kinds of things?” As much as I loved his dirty mouth, his sweet words were just as thrilling, and I wanted to hear them all.

“I want to share a bed with you every night. And wake up to you every morning. I want to make breakfast for you, see you in the stands at Central High baseball games, reach all the stuff in the high cupboards in the kitchen. I want to be the one you come home to.”

I smiled. “Don’t be scared. I want all those things too.”

“But what if I fuck it up?” He kissed his way up the center of my chest and braced himself above me. “What if I’m not good at it? What if I don’t deserve it?”

“Tyler.” I took his face in my hands. “You deserve it. Do you hear me? You deserve to be loved the way I’m going to love you.”

Then his mouth was crushing mine and we were pressed chest to chest, rolling sideways with our arms and legs tangled as we tried to get under each other’s skin. He left my side only for the twenty seconds it took to put a condom on, and then he was back, easing into my body. When he was buried deep, he stopped and looked down at me. “I don’t know what the second act of my life is going to look like, but I know you’re the best part of it.”

My heart, already beating hard, threatened to burst right out of my chest. “Really?”

“Yes.”

Tell me again, I wanted to say, even as his mouth possessed mine once more and he began rocking into me with deep, steady strokes. Let me hear those words again, because they meant I didn’t have to be alone anymore. They meant the risk was worth it.

They meant that finally I could say to myself . . . This is what it feels like to fall in love.

Review – May Contain Wine by Lani Lynn Vale

50825479. sy475

May Contain Wine; SWAT Generation 2.0 #5 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Lani Lynn Vale

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I am such a sucker for second chance romances and Louis and Calloway were true perfection!

May Contain Wine is a second chance romance and part of the SWAT world. Louis and Calloway dated in high school, but Louis breaks up with Calloway before he deploys for the military. His only excuse being their distance and she still has a year left in school. It isn’t long after he dumps her that he regrets it, but Calloway doesn’t look back and doesn’t give him a second chance for years and years.

It is only through a happenstance that Louis is able to jump on the chance when Calloway opens the door that he is able to plow back into her life. One that he’s been waiting for since he made that mistake of letting her go years before.

May Contain Wine contains lots of moments with the SWAT members outside of work, so you really get to know the gang and whom they belong to or may have crushes on or pretend they don’t have crushes on. It’s a good book to read if you wanted to jump into the series and haven’t read any before and wanted to get to know the characters.

Louis and Calloway are completely adorable. He is a total sofie where she’s concerned and I loved that he was all in all the time knowing he’s  been waiting in the wings and frankly now he’s so done waiting. I really love everything about this story.

Synopsis:

This is for charity. This is for fun. You are a professional. You can do it.

Those are the words that Calloway Alvarez chants to herself as she watches all the large men gather into the small room where she’ll be doing the interviews for her employer—Hero Magazine.

Honestly, she’s convinced herself that she can’t accomplish the task at hand.

That is until she hears his voice, and her head turns to see him standing there.

Louis Spurlock. Greek god. SWAT officer. Keeper of her secrets. Ultimate fantasy. Man who will break her heart.
***
Louis Spurlock has been playing nice.

He’s been biding his time, giving Calloway the space she thinks she needs.

But then he sees her taking photos of his friends in all states of undress, talking to them all as if they’re best friends, and that little thread of control he’d been managing to hold onto unravels.

Let’s change it up, she says. And the moment the words are out of her mouth, he’s stripping to his skivvies, and throwing out a challenge while he’s at it.

Calloway won’t know what hit her when he’s through playing.

But he does know one thing for sure. When it ends, she’ll be his.

Want another bite?” Then she started to laugh. “I know how much you like local cherries.”

Tipping back my beer, I narrowed my eyes at her, then set the bottle down with a thunk. “What is that supposed to mean?”

She shrugged. “You liked mine, didn’t you?”

Review – Clutch Player by Nikki Ash

52190483. sy475

Clutch Player; A Cocky Hero Club Novel 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Nikki Ash

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Clutch Player is filled with all the warm fuzzies!!

This is a second chance love story about a wonderful, understanding baseball player and a beautiful mother who puts her children first and hopes for a second chance love. This entire romance I was filled with good feelings and couldn’t stop smiling, even when I was blubbering at the end. Nikki Ash never disappoints in writing a wonderful second chance love story.

Harper and Landon date in high school, but when Landon gets drafted by the MLB right out of school, their time gets cut short. Trying to keep a long distance relationship up is difficult and time eventually passes.

It appears fate steps in when a blind date sets them up and they are able to reconnect, but Harper feels her baggage is huge as an ex-wife with two children, but Landon refuses to be pushed away. This is their second chance and he wants Harper, baggage and all.

Clutch Player references characters in British Bedmate by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, but you don’t have to have read it to enjoy this story. This is a complete standalone.

Synopsis:

Clutch player: an athlete who is good under pressure and performs highly impossible plays in a quick and almost impossible amount of time.

Harper
I fell in love when I was sixteen. Landon was my entire world and I thought he would be my forever. But I was young and dumb, and with one error in judgement, I destroyed any chance of a future we could’ve had together, along with our hearts.

Twelve years later and I’m going through the motions of life, but not actually living. Which is why I let my friends, Bridget and Simon, set me up on a blind date. Turns out, it’s not so blind after all. Because the man sitting in front of me is the same man who’s held onto my heart all these years.

Landon
They call me a Clutch Player because I’m good under pressure and quick on my feet. I was also quick to fall in love. The first time it was with baseball, the second was with Harper. And for a short time I had them both.

Until I lost Harper and all I had left was baseball.

For years, I focused on my career. I had accepted that baseball was my one true love.

Until I saw her again. I never imagined we’d ever get a second chance, but now that she’s sitting right across from me, I know there’s no way in hell I’m going to let her go again.

*Clutch Player is a complete standalone, second chance, single parent romance novel*

Star Crossed - teaser 4 AN.jpg

Excerpt

 

“Really.” I grabbed my camera. “Thank you for the eggs. Your apology is accepted, and your warning… I get it. Thank you. I’ll keep my eyes out.”

Fifteen steps to the door. Why were those lofts so damn big? What was I thinking?

Five steps, and I heard a shuffle behind me, the scrape of a chair. I picked up the pace, and I knew he was behind me. By the time I got to the door, his chest was against my back and his hand was over the door jamb.

“Don’t,” he said.

“Don’t what?”

“I’m going to get between you and this. I don’t like anyone knowing where you are. I don’t like you walking around at night unprotected. Especially because of me.”

I turned, putting my back to the door. “I haven’t seen you in ten years. Now this?”

“I should say it’s that I feel responsible for what’s happening. But you’re in this business as much as I am, so it’s not that. It’s you. I was up half the night thinking about you in those bleachers. The things you told me. The stuff I told you. How I felt. Back then, I was so confused, and I left you without a call or checking on you for reasons that…” He shook his head. “The reasons were pathetic. No one would have approved of you, and I lived on approval.”

He touched my hair, and those long strands became nerve endings for desire. The little hairless spot on his chin shifted, and I wanted to touch it so badly that I did so without thinking.

“Whatever it was I felt before, I’m not hiding from it this time. This time, I’m not going to worry what anyone else thinks,” he said.

“What if I’m worried?”

“I’ll make you not worried.”

His breath warmed my cheek, and I believed he could change things, even as I knew he couldn’t. He could only drag himself down. This could only go bad. But I turned my face until my lips touched his, and he stopped being a movie star. He was the boy in the bleachers, the one who worked too hard and cared too much, and I became the girl who could be anything she wanted, the one who was accepted and whose life was about to turn around.

But I’d wanted it then. I’d wanted his hand in mine to be the warning bell for change. In the penthouse loft, with his lips and tongue growing more urgent and his hands on the sides of my face, I didn’t want my life to change. I’d done everything I’d set out to do since he’d left, and there he was again, ready to destroy everything I’d built in exchange for a mouth that fit mine like a palm curled over a fist.

I turned to face the door, still trapped by his arms, and opened it a crack. He slapped it shut.

“If you’re not busy, I want to take you somewhere.”

“I’m always busy,” I said, leaning into him.

“Doing what?”

“Taking pictures of Hollywood royalty.”

“Bring your camera then.”

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Here With Me 
(A standalone interconnection)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An emotional read about love that spans a lifetime, conquering your demons, and struggling to find your inner strength to find your happiness.

Sawyer has been the rock of his family, the foundation for everyone in his life, but he also hasn’t been entirely happy. On the outside he may appear to have what he needs, but inside he is a wreck. He has been for a very long time, but without time or anyone else to pick up the work he put all feelings into a box and just kept moving. It is years later when work, his time in the military, and his parents death finally break out of that box that he may end up losing the one good thing in his life, Mindy.

Mindy is Sawyer’s sisters best friend. She isn’t quite sure when her love and adoration for him changed into something more, but for her there really hasn’t been anyone else for her. She respects and understands the quiet man, even giving him the space he needs when he returns from his time in the military. As much as she wants more with him, she takes what he is willing to give until the moment he finally pushes her away for the last time. Mindy is told a man will take whatever she is willing to give away, perhaps it is time to stop giving away pieces of herself and start focusing on loving herself instead.

For Mindy and Sawyer they both saw each other as their rock or anchor in each others lives. Someone who was stable and calmed them in their own storm. However, they both had their own personal struggles that they had to overcome before they could truly be each others foundation. Here With Me is a beautiful story of not only overcoming your own personal struggles, but knowing those you love will be by your side no matter what those struggles may be.

Synopsis:

Sawyer LaGrange.
He’s my best friend’s older brother.
He’s quiet, brooding, sinfully sexy 
Dark hair, a scruffy square jaw, and deep lines of muscle I trace my fingers along slowly, followed by my lips…
He always does what’s right.
Until me…
They say you get in life what you have the courage to ask for.
Well, I’m brave.
And I want him.

Secrets.
Everybody has them.
Big, small, innocent… forbidden.
Mindy was a line I should never have crossed.
But I did.
She was beautiful… sassy and tempting,
And rules were made to be broken.
We broke them all.

Now I’m home, released from service with hidden scars.
Now my secrets are the demons that grow stronger every day.
I try to send her away, but I can’t let her go.
She’s my reason to fight, and I’ll walk through hell to be the man she deserves.
To give her a reason to stay here with me.

(HERE WITH ME is a STAND-ALONE best friend’s older brother, second-chance, military romance. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

Review – P.S. It’s Always Been You by Lauren Blakely

52905258. sy475

P.S. It’s Always Been You 
(A standalone)

by: Lauren Blakely

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A standalone, second chance romance with a fun archaeologist expedition component mixed in. When you’ve lost the love of your life and she is, for lack of a better term, a treasure hunter what better way to win her back than to go on a treasure hunt. This is the heart of P.S. It’s Always Been You. Hunter and Presley solve a century old love story, while they piece their own hearts back together.

A decade ago Hunter and Presley were a couple, then Hunter took a job that was not only life altering for his career, but it took him away from Presley. She was not quite as fortunate on the career front and years later still just a little angry that he just up and left from their relationship. When he returns and wants another chance she’s not sure about giving him one. While he’s had a fantastic life for the past decade and did the leaving, with what appeared very little hardship, her heart couldn’t take him doing the same thing once again.

If it’s one thing that Lauren does really well in her writing, it is writing a heartfelt apology. Hunter realizes that Presley is hurt, even after all the years that have passed. Instead of giving a blanket “I’m sorry”, he delivers a sincere, heartfelt apology. Lauren digs deep to the pain or misunderstanding so that characters can get back to their romping good time. I think this is why her books are always so enjoyable.

Hunter and Presley search for clues to a century old love story, one that take them throughout New York City and reconnecting along the way. For Hunter it is an adventure, something that he craves. For Presley it touches the historian in her. Now if only they could continue this journey forever so their time would never end.

Synopsis:

A sweeping, second chance standalone romance!

I was pretty good at living without regrets until a way too close call during a skydive. Instead of my life flashing before my eyes, I saw one face, one regret that’s been gnawing at me ever since—Presley. The woman I loved madly ten years ago. The woman I had to walk away from.

At first, all I want is to sort out why I can’t get her out of my head. But as soon as I see Presley again, I know I have to win her back at any cost. Brilliant, captivating and utterly beautiful, she’s the one I want.

Fate steps in when we’re asked to pair up to find a treasure in art and antiques. It’s an opportunity I can’t pass up—to uncover a path back to the woman I let get away while we chase down a love story a hundred years in the making.

Trouble is, Presley is tougher now, more wary, and she’s been hurt. By me. So it’s going to take a whole lot more than one hot kiss and a wild adventure together to convince her to give me a second chance.

Read Kay’s Review: Unforgotten Passion

 

 

 

Excerpt:

When Raevynn met Collin’s gaze again, she realized he was staring at her features intently, making her feel suddenly self-conscious since it had been a long time since a man had seen her without an ounce of makeup on. “Why are you looking at me like that?” she asked softly.

In bare feet, he slowly closed the short distance between them, and she remained right where she was, barely able to breath when he stopped a few inches from her. She had to tip her head back to meet his striking green eyes that were filled with the sweetest, most honest affection.

“Because this is the Raevynn I remember,” he murmured, brushing the backs of his fingers along her cheek, causing her breath to hitch in her throat at that gentle but sensual caress. “Fresh-faced. A natural beauty who doesn’t need anything to enhance this perfect, flawless skin. Lush lips that are so naturally soft and pink . . .”

His words trailed off, as if he realized he was starting to travel into intimate territory. Instead, his hand moved to the hair she’d plaited, the long, intertwined strands that came over her shoulder and hung down past her left breast. As if mesmerized, his fingers slowly, gradually traced the woven pattern all the way down to the hairband she’d found in the bathroom and had used to secure the end.

“And this braid . . .” He gave it a gentle tug that was probably meant to be playful, but the suddenly deep, sensual tone of his voice vibrated its way up her spine and resonated inside her body. “Remember all the times I pulled it when we were kids running around my parents’ backyard playing tag?”

She swallowed hard and nodded. “Yeah.” At that young age, yanking on her hair had been a way to antagonize her, and it worked. “You’d make me so damn mad.”

He chuckled, the sound like warm honey sliding down her skin, seeping inside her. “And then years later, when I’d come over to your house at night and call up to your bedroom—”

“Rapunzel, let down your hair,” they said in unison and laughed. Unlike the fairy tale, he’d climbed up the tree next to the house and had managed to make his way inside her window.

“I want to cut it so badly,” she said.

He blinked at her in surprise. “Your hair?”

She nodded. “Yes. It’s just so . . . cumbersome.”

His hand fell away from the end of her braid. “Then why don’t you?”

“Because all this hair is part of my image and my mother and advisors would have a heart attack if I cut it as short as I’d like.”

“If it’s what you really want, then you should do it,” he said with a casual shrug. “It’s your hair, not theirs. Besides, what are they going to do once it’s gone?”

He made it all sound so easy and simple, but it was always the fear of her mother’s wrath and any related consequences of her actions that stopped her from walking into an unknown salon, where her personal stylist did not work, and ask for someone to chop it off to her shoulders. Unfortunately, she’d never had the guts to follow through on that particular inclination.

New Release – Beefcakes by Katana Collins

Beefcakes - RB banner

Things are about to get sticky…

Beefcakes, an all-new hilarious and sweet second-chance romance from Katana Collins, is available now!

9.11_Beefcakes

I might as well permanently add the label “Ex” to my name. I’m an Ex-Mr. Universe. Ex-Mr. Olympus. An Ex-Hollywood Stuntman. But no one from my small hometown cares anything about that. They only care that I’m the ex-boyfriend to the beloved Mayor’s daughter, Elaina Dyker.

And now, ten years later, I’m back, helping my siblings run my mother’s bakery while she takes on chemo. What should have been a routine cupcake delivery turns into utter chaos when the bachelorette party thinks I’m a stripper. And what’s worse? Elaina is the maid of honor.

But the meme about us sure went viral fast. My small hometown has become positively infested with tipsy bridesmaids looking for my erotic cupcakes.

Now Hollywood’s knocking again—and this time they want me and my ex, Mr. Beefcake and Ms. Prude, to star in a reality show.

It could solve all my problems—except her.

KC - PhotoAbout Katana

As an author and a story-teller, it is the lifeblood to which my ideas take flight. And I believe in giving credit where credit is due. Occasionally someone (ie – my husband) will try to secretly switch out my beloved regular coffee for decaf. I always know the difference. ALWAYS (I’m looking at you, SEAN).

I am incapable of achieving the perfect ponytail. I’m dyslexic. I can never wear white without spilling on myself. And I’ve never read Pride and Prejudice (gasp!).

When I was younger and stole my mother’s Harlequins to read beneath the covers with a flashlight (seriously, did we ALL do this? I think we did.), I wanted to read about the tough as nails heroine. The perfectly imperfect girl with quirks and attitude and sass. And the anti-heroes who were anything but “Prince Charming.” Forget the knight on a white horse… give me the bad boy on a motorcycle.

So, now, I write those romance novels I craved to see on the shelves all those years ago—the sassy heroines. The badass heroes. I spend my days in the throes of my imagination, and am loving every minute of it. I can travel anywhere and become anyone I want to be. One day, I’m a mechanic in Boston and the next, I’m a vampire stripping in Las Vegas.

Since penning my first novel back in 2012, I’m now an international author with 15 published books, in a wide range of contemporary romance genres–(Paranormal, New Adult, Small town, Erotic Suspense… you name it!).

After living for a decade in Brooklyn, NY, I took the plunge and moved to beautiful (although kinda chilly) Portland, Maine. I now live full time in ‘Vacationland’ with a kind of mean cat, a mellow chihuahua, and a very NOT mellow lab-pittie mix. Oh, yeah… there’s a husband who draws comics somewhere in that mix, too. I can usually be found in a coffee shop with my nose in my laptop wearing fabulous (albeit sometimes impractical) shoes.

I love connecting with readers and fellow sassy storytellers, so feel free to drop me an email at katana.collins@gmail.com or connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (@katanacollins). You can find a list of my available books over on my Bookshelf or if you’ve already read a book, it would make my day if you wrote a review!

New Release – CHUTE YEAH by Lani Lynn Vale

Image may contain: one or more people, night and text
Release Date: March 24
 

Image may contain: one or more people, people standing, hat and textCandy Ray Sunshine—Yes, that is my real name, thank you very much, Mom and Dad—knew two things.
 
One, she was going to work her butt off and open her very own coffee shop, even if she had to die doing it.
 
Two, Banks Valentine was the world’s worst ex-boyfriend in the history of ex-boyfriends. Even if they were only boyfriend and girlfriend for one evening. She wouldn’t sneeze on him even if he was on fire.
***
Banks Valentine also knew two things.
One, he was an immature jerk when he was in high school, and Candy Ray Sunshine probably could open a coffee shop if she put her mind to it. But he still thinks that she should shoot a little higher, anything that gets her the heck out of Kilgore, Texas.
Two, he likes riding bulls. It’s a dangerous job, and when he gets on the back of one of those thousand-pound death machines, he can finally feel his head clear enough that he can think.
***
Candy and Banks would never get along. Not after what he said, and definitely not after what she did.
 
Then again, neither one of them expected that night to end the way it did, either—the night that both of them refused to talk about the next morning.

Cover Reveal – Take Two by Heather M Orgeron

COVER REVEAL
Title: Take Two
Author: Heather M. Orgeron
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Cover Design: Juliana Cabrera
Release Date: March 19, 2020

BLURB

Who says you can’t marry the same mistake twice?

Certainly not Nya Perez…because that’s precisely what she’s done.

Liam Watts is the bane of her existence.
Her first love. Father of her child. And breaker of her heart.

Oh, he’s also her ex-husband. Well, he was, anyway…right up til this morning, when she woke up beside him in a Vegas hotel room, sheathed in satin and tulle with a sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach.

If it were just between the two of them, an annulment would be the obvious solution. After all, they wouldn’t be the first to marry and divorce at the little white chapel in the span of twenty-four hours.

But their daughter’s greatest wish has just been granted, and if there’s one heart Nya wants to protect more than her own, it’s Ellie’s.

So, she promises to give it six months.

There’s no way she’ll be swayed by his thick southern drawl, those well-defined abs, or that annoyingly delectable scruff lining his cheeks.

Nope. She’s got it all under control. Six months of playing house, then everything can go back to the way it was before.

But first she’ll have to muddle through marriage with Liam—take two.

Cover Reveal – The Ninth Inning by J. Sterling

NI - CR banner

The Ninth Inning, an all-new second-chance standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author J. Sterling, is coming April 10th and we have the dreamy cover!

20191203_120503

Cole Anders is in his last season at Fullton State. If he doesn’t get drafted this year, he’ll be forced to hang up his cleats for good. It’s not something he’s ready to do.

To prove he’s serious about his final season, he’s given up girls. No more casual hookups, dates or one-night stands. But there’s one girl who has always refused to give up on him. One girl who has been there since the start of Freshman year. One girl he stupidly assumed would always be waiting for him when he got off the field, no matter how long it took.

Christina’s had enough of Cole pushing her aside for baseball. She’s grown tired of waiting for him to see what she’s known since they were freshmen… that they are good together. She’s finally moved on- for good this time.

Cole has other ideas, but she refuses to cave. It’s not her problem if he wants her now. Too little too late.

There comes a point in your life when you have to stop the incessant merry-go-round and just get off the ride, right? Try telling that to Cole.

JSterlingAbout J. Sterling

My goal is to write books that you can get lost in and stories that will leave you with a smile and a full heart. If you can forget about the real world while you’re reading and fall in love with my characters, then I’ve done my job. A lot of what I write has real life aspects in it, but that’s what makes the stories so relatable- the fact that they could happen to anyone… and have!

I live in California with my son, Blake. If you can’t find me sitting behind a computer screen, then there’s a good chance I’m sitting in the bleachers of a baseball stadium watching him play. I love traveling to new places, meeting my readers and spending time with the love of my life, my very own second chance romance, who inspires me daily.

I know you have a million books to choose from and I am humbled, grateful and thankful each time you choose to read one of mine, or tell someone else to read them. Thank you.

Excerpt:

“Close your eyes.”

I slant a curious look at Gavin, taking in his kiss-swollen lips and flushed skin, his untamable mop of hair and the blaze of excitement lighting up the blue of his corneas.

Gavin squeezes my hand reassuringly as I do what he’s asked, then slowly walks me the remaining few steps toward our cave. Without vision, my other senses are heightened. The cry of birds sounds closer, like they are perched just overhead instead of on branches thirty or forty feet above. The bite of the breeze on my skin is sharper, each gust sending a chill racing along already sensitive nerve endings. The smell of ripe earth and rich evergreen and the clean, bracing scent of Gavin himself is downright intoxicating, my head swimming as I pull breaths deep into my lungs.

Most of all, the moonstone pendant laying against my collarbone is making my chest tingle, my heart fluttering against my ribcage.

“Okay, open them.”

I do, immediately gasping in surprise at what Gavin’s done to our little cave. There are candles burning and scattered rose petals—no, poppy petals—and a basket filled with drinks and snacks. A pile of blankets and pillows.

“You did all this for me?” I ask, my voice sounding whispery and weird.

I feel whispery and weird.

I’ve never had a birthday like this. I’ve never even imagined a birthday like this. First the necklace and now, seeing the lengths Gavin has gone for me…

Beneath the surface of my skin, I’m a chaotic mess of emotions. I don’t know what to say, how to act. This is uncharted territory for me.

“Of course,” he says, as if it’s nothing. But it’s not nothing. It’s everything.

Before I dissolve into a teary puddle, Gavin reaches into his pocket and pulls out a deck of cards. “You taught me how to play gin rummy—how about I teach you to play poker?”

A strangled laugh leaves my throat. “I think that’s fair.”

We sit down and Gavin spends a few minutes going over the basics of the game before dealing out the cards. It’s not as easy as gin rummy, but I get the hang of it after a few rounds.

And when Gavin lifts a mischievous brow and asks, “Want to make things interesting?” I know exactly what he’s doing. Not just poker. Strip poker.

That’s when I realize just how much planning has gone into tonight. Beyond buying me an expensive present. Beyond pimping out our cave. Gavin found a way to make my first time—our first time—a mix of old and new. An experience evoking our past and celebrating our future.

I’ve imagined the night Gavin and I would finally go all the way a million times. But I’d only focused on the physical aspects. Would it hurt? Will there be blood? What if I do it wrong?

It never crossed my mind that he would take such care with… everything.

But, of course, it should have.

Gavin Cross is one of a kind.

And he’s mine.

Sneak Peek – BEEFCAKES by Katana Collins

Beefcakes - SP banner

Things are about to get sticky…

Beefcakes, an all-new hilarious, second-chance standalone romance from Katana Collins, is coming March 24th and we have the FIRST sneak peek!

9.11_Beefcakes

I might as well permanently add the label “Ex” to my name. I’m an Ex-Mr. Universe. Ex-Mr. Olympus. An Ex-Hollywood Stuntman. But no one from my small hometown cares anything about that. They only care that I’m the ex-boyfriend to the beloved Mayor’s daughter, Elaina Dyker.

And now, ten years later, I’m back, helping my siblings run my mother’s bakery while she takes on chemo. What should have been a routine cupcake delivery turns into utter chaos when the bachelorette party thinks I’m a stripper. And what’s worse? Elaina is the maid of honor.

But the meme about us sure went viral fast. My small hometown has become positively infested with tipsy bridesmaids looking for my erotic cupcakes.

Now Hollywood’s knocking again—and this time they want me and my ex, Mr. Beefcake and Ms. Prude, to star in a reality show.

It could solve all my problems—except her.

Excerpt

I arched my brow at her. “I bragged about knowing you so well…but man. I did not see this almond croissant massacre coming. What do you have against almonds? Or was it the amount of butter that offended you? Because as a fitness expert, let me tell you butter isn’t the enemy. Sugar is the enemy.”

She laughed. “I, uh…I might have some anger management issues.”

I took the bag from her and peeked in. There were knuckle marks against the outside of the croissant. Literal knuckle marks. I barked a laugh. “Elaina Dyker. Did you punch the croissant?”

She laughed, pressing her lips together as though this would hide the fact that I saw her adorable little giggle. She brought her thumb and forefinger up beside her temple. “Maybe a little.”“Did you even try a bite?”

She shook her head no. “I like my routine. I like my daily lunch of yogurt and almonds.”

I made a face. Because she had to be exaggerating. Sure…she liked them. But having that same thing every day? Even chocolate cake every day would get tedious. “You can like yogurt and almonds but still indulge every now and then, you know.” I reached in and pinched off a piece of the smashed croissant, holding it out toward her lips. “C’mon. Live a little. I promise you, it is actually healthy, if that’s your concern.” Not that she needed to be concerned about that. “Almond flour. Gluten free. Grain free. Only two net carbs. The only sugar is the honey in the honey roasted almonds and the natural sugar in dates.” Her eyes grew wide at that and I knew I had hooked her.

She reached out her hand to take the piece of croissant from me, but I pulled back. “Nuh-uh,” I teased. “We can’t have your fingers getting sticky. Might ruin that fancy suit you’re wearing.”

She rolled her eyes, but parted her wet lips, her tongue peeking out just enough for me to place the croissant on top of. She moaned as soon as it hit her mouth, and her eyes fell closed as she slowly chewed and swallowed. “That’s…that’s healthy?”

I nodded. “See? I’m not just a pile of muscles. I’ve got some talent, too.”

Her head fell to the side. “I never said you weren’t talented. I just wish you wouldn’t show off quite so much of your other assets.”

I grinned. “I thought you liked my assets?”

“I do,” she answered absentmindedly, then immediately shook her head, realizing what she’d said. “I mean, I did.”

KC - PhotoAbout Katana

As an author and a story-teller, it is the lifeblood to which my ideas take flight. And I believe in giving credit where credit is due. Occasionally someone (ie – my husband) will try to secretly switch out my beloved regular coffee for decaf. I always know the difference. ALWAYS (I’m looking at you, SEAN).

I am incapable of achieving the perfect ponytail. I’m dyslexic. I can never wear white without spilling on myself. And I’ve never read Pride and Prejudice (gasp!).

When I was younger and stole my mother’s Harlequins to read beneath the covers with a flashlight (seriously, did we ALL do this? I think we did.), I wanted to read about the tough as nails heroine. The perfectly imperfect girl with quirks and attitude and sass. And the anti-heroes who were anything but “Prince Charming.” Forget the knight on a white horse… give me the bad boy on a motorcycle.

So, now, I write those romance novels I craved to see on the shelves all those years ago—the sassy heroines. The badass heroes. I spend my days in the throes of my imagination, and am loving every minute of it. I can travel anywhere and become anyone I want to be. One day, I’m a mechanic in Boston and the next, I’m a vampire stripping in Las Vegas.

Since penning my first novel back in 2012, I’m now an international author with 15 published books, in a wide range of contemporary romance genres–(Paranormal, New Adult, Small town, Erotic Suspense… you name it!).

After living for a decade in Brooklyn, NY, I took the plunge and moved to beautiful (although kinda chilly) Portland, Maine. I now live full time in ‘Vacationland’ with a kind of mean cat, a mellow chihuahua, and a very NOT mellow lab-pittie mix. Oh, yeah… there’s a husband who draws comics somewhere in that mix, too. I can usually be found in a coffee shop with my nose in my laptop wearing fabulous (albeit sometimes impractical) shoes.

I love connecting with readers and fellow sassy storytellers, so feel free to drop me an email at katana.collins@gmail.com or connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (@katanacollins). You can find a list of my available books over on my Bookshelf or if you’ve already read a book, it would make my day if you wrote a review!

Review – One Night Stand In by Lauren Blakely

50188464. sy475

One Night Stand In; Boyfriend Material #3 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Lauren Blakely

Review Rating:

 

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A Lauren Blakely novel never disappoints and I loved reading the rekindling relationship between Lola and Lucas in this second chance romantic comedy!

Two friends that had the potential to be more back in college, but due to a falling out they didn’t, but here we are ten years later and with a crazy night ahead of them filled with one amazing scavenger hunt they have a chance to rekindle, make amends and possibly find something they lost a long time ago.

I adore Blakely’s books for being low drama, high on fun, and they always make me feel good. I’m guaranteed to laugh out loud and potentially blush every single time so seriously, what is NOT to love!!

“My device often has the gall to remind me of my fitness inadequacies with occasional notifications, like You’ve only walked two miles today,  to which I say, Fuck you, phone, I can berate myself just fine, thank you very much.”

I have a FitBit and yes, I too get annoyed. Yet, I wear it everyday and I have panicked, seriously panicked when I have forgotten to wear it. The day did not exist!! I also had to stop and think what is wrong with me? while also fudging the numbers on my app to make sure the day did exist, because who else would know if not my fitbit (I mean it tells me everything else LOL)…I love that I can snort laugh through these moments with Lauren’s characters.

Okay, back to them. Lola and Lucas are another gem couple that you will fall in love with. Their scavenger hunt is fun and really made me wish I had one to do in my immediate future. Lauren Blakely brings out the fun and certainly made me miss my girlfriends.

While each book in the Boyfriend Material series is a standalone, they do work wonderfully together. Each is different, but also awesome in their own way.

What I also love about this series is that these three best friends have not only found their mates but that each one is also somehow connected to the writing industry. Whether an editor, a graphic designer, or a blogger they are all interconnected and supportive of each other. It is a great sisterhood. One of my favorite series of Blakely’s yet.

Synopsis:

Lucas Xavier is the last person I want to spend 24 hours with, let alone two minutes. Exes are exes for a reason. In his case, for a million reasons. Because he’s not only an ex-lover, he’s also an ex-friend. We didn’t just break up – we combusted in a spectacular bonfire of barbs and doors slammed.

Nothing will change that. Not his clever wit, not his ridiculous good looks, not his unfair levels of charm. And definitely not a wild dash through the city that takes us on an accidental scavenger hunt through our past, where we stop for a tango lesson, pancakes and a visit with some llamas.

And certainly not time together to make amends and say we’re sorry.

But, let’s say that was enough…it’s not like you can fall in love in 24 hours.

One Night Stand-In is a Boyfriend Material series standalone! Three best friends. Three outrageous proposals. Three chances to fall in ove. Three brand new standalones from Lauren Blakely!

Blog Tour – Unbreakable by Melanie Harlow

Unbreakable - BT banner

“Unbreakable is everything you expect from a Melanie Harlow novel: emotional, sexy and a love that’s worth risking it all for. I could not get enough of Henry and Sylvia’s story!”

— Corinne Michaels, New York Times bestselling author

Unbreakable, an all new “do not miss” sexy and emotional second chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is available now!

Unbreakable AMAZON

In hindsight, I should not have had that fifth mimosa at Breakfast with Santa.

Or the sixth, seventh, and eighth.

But my shame over the public meltdown that resulted was nothing compared to being abandoned by my husband of fifteen years for a much younger woman—and did I mention she’s pregnant?

For the sake of my children and my pride, I pack up and head for my childhood home and the small town where I grew up. Cloverleigh Farms would be the perfect place for a fresh start.

Falling for Henry DeSantis wasn’t part of the plan.

Sure, he’s easy on the eyes and hard in the bedroom (also the hallway, the bathtub, and on top of his desk), but he’s newly divorced too, and things between us are moving so fast I’m afraid neither one of us has had enough time to heal. Not to mention the fact that I’m a single mom now—my kids have to come first.

But Henry makes me feel beautiful and sexy and wanted and strong—things I haven’t felt in years. We understand each other, and when I’m in his arms, I’m tempted to trust again. To love again. To let myself be loved without fear.

But deep down, I’m terrified.

Is this all too much, too soon? Or am I a fool to let a second chance at happily ever after pass me by?

Excerpt

“Want to unzip my dress?”

“That would be a hell yes.” He took my hand and pulled me to my feet. “Turn around.”

I turned, lifting my hair off my neck. Slowly, he pulled the zipper down my back, and the red dress fell to my feet. Stepping out of it, I suddenly felt self-conscious. I hadn’t been fully naked in front of a man without the cover of darkness in a long time. I hadn’t been fully naked in front of anyone but my ex since I was twenty—and I didn’t have that body anymore. I’d had two children. Even though I knew it was stupid, that nagging little prickle of insecurity still stung . . . I’d been left for a younger woman. He’d told her I didn’t excite him anymore. Was my body to blame? Before I could stop myself, I covered my chest with my arms, wrapping one fist inside the other and tucking them beneath my chin.

“Hey.” Henry turned me by the shoulder so I was facing him again. “Don’t do that.”

“What?” I had trouble looking him in the eye.

He tipped my chin up. “Don’t hide yourself from me.”

“I’m not hiding,” I said, but of course I was.

Taking me by the wrists, he forced my arms down to my sides, and looked at me.

I started to panic a little.

I was totally bare before him—stretch marks, C-section scar, less-than-perky breasts and all. Unlike many of my friends, I’d never had surgery to restore my post-baby body to its former tight, bouncy, unmarked state. Now I was kind of wishing I had.

I’d never felt so naked or vulnerable in my life.

“Sylvia, I’m going to say this once,” Henry said seriously. “And then, since you’ve learned not to trust words entirely, I’m going to spend the rest of the night showing you that it’s true—I think you are the most exquisite woman on the face of the earth, in every way. There is no part of your body, no inch of your skin, that isn’t perfect, because it’s yours.” He took my head in his hands and kissed me, hard but sweet. “And all I want to do is make you mine, even if it’s just for tonight.”

“Yes,” I whispered. I rose up on my toes, pressing my lips to his again while my hands went to work unbuttoning his shirt. “Make me yours tonight, Henry. That’s all I want to be.”

Growing up, Ramsey Stewart branded my soul in ways time could never heal.

At twelve, he asked me to be his girlfriend.

At thirteen, he gave me my first kiss.

By sixteen, we’d fallen in love, planned a future together, and had our eyes set on the horizon.

Love never fails, right?

But for Ramsey, it did.

Love failed him.

I failed him.

The entire world failed him.

At seventeen, Ramsey was convicted of killing the boy who assaulted me.

Move on,he wrote in his first and only letter from prison.

Start a new life, he urged.

I don’t love you anymore, he lied.

There was no such thing as giving up on Ramsey. Love may have been our curse, but he was mine—then, now, and forever.

So here I am, twelve long years later, waiting for a man I don’t even know to emerge from between the chain link gates.

Excerpt

It was funny. I’d spent almost half my life surrounded by the biggest, baddest criminals the state of Georgia had been able to capture. Yet, I was terrified of a five-foot-five woman who for some asinine reason was still in love with me.

I couldn’t be around her. Not if I wanted to keep my head straight and my eye on the prize. I had three years before I got off parole. I needed to get a job, tuck away some cash, and, the second I was allowed to leave Georgia, get the hell out of there. Maybe, if I was lucky, I’d be able to convince my sister to come with me. We didn’t have to go far. We could stay in the south if she wanted. South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee—there were schools everywhere. Nora wouldn’t have trouble finding a job. The hardest part would be convincing her to leave Thea.

However, maybe if she did, Thea would finally move on with her life and stop obsessing about me.

I’d known they lived together for a while. I didn’t want anything to do with Thea while I was locked up, but I was happy as hell Nora had someone to lean on. I had been under the impression that Nora had gotten her own place when she found out about my release. I had been under that impression because Nora had straight-up told me she was getting her own place after I’d declared there was no way I was living with Thea.

Now, I was hiding in my room, waiting for Nora to wake up, open my door, and escort me to breakfast like a damn bodyguard so I could avoid confrontation.

Next up in my efforts to kill time was a workout. Sit ups, push-ups, planks, running in place. This was when I realized Nora hadn’t bought me any deodorant.

Another shower.

Another naked lap around the bedroom, and this time, I managed to keep my hands off my cock.

Finally, I got dressed. This required me to pick through a bunch of preppy shit Nora had bought for me to find tattered jeans and a fitted green tee that clung to my chest like a damn glove. In my closet, I found a belt and a pair of distressed brown lace-up boots that maybe could have doubled as combat boots if the war was taking place on a runway. But what the hell did I know about style? I’d been wearing orange or puke beige for almost half my life.

When I was done with all of that and there was still no sign of Nora, I sat on the edge of the bed and decided to give the phone thing a try. I wasn’t totally out of the technology loop. We had computers at the library and we were allowed to use them if we earned the privileges. But they might as well have been dinosaurs compared to the phone she’d bought me. I couldn’t even get it to read my face with the fancy secret laser thing. I gave up trying pretty quickly.

So there I was, bored out of my mind, starving, and poking at my newfound wrinkles in the bathroom mirror, when I heard a knock at my door.

“Ramsey?”

I froze, my eyes locked on the mirror, panic staring back at me.

Thea.

Jesus. I needed to find somewhere else to live.

Leaning out of the bathroom, I stared at the door. If I was super quiet, maybe she’d think I was still asleep and go the hell away.

When I didn’t reply, she knocked again. Her voice was timid and sweet, not at all like the fearless girl I’d grown up with. I hated it.

“Ramsey? You hungry? I’m making breakfast? I was wondering if you wanted something?” Everything from my name to the fact that she was making breakfast was a question, as if maybe she was asking permission to cook in her own house.

My stomach was currently feasting on my backbone. Still, I said nothing.

She sighed. “Okay. Well, if you change your—” There were several seconds of silence.

I quirked my eyebrow at the door, trying to figure out why she’d abruptly stopped talking, and then cursed my inability to develop x-ray vision.

I held my breath, hoping to hear her footsteps as she walked away.

No. Such. Fucking. Luck.

The door swung open and she came walking inside with her hands stacked over her eyes. “Look, I know you’re awake. I heard you running earlier. I also heard you take at least three showers. Sorry, but the house isn’t that big. Neither is the hot water heater. Are you at least dressed so I can open my eyes?”

Brave. Unapologetic. And completely oblivious to boundaries. Now that was the Thea I knew.

“Get out,” I barked.

“Dressed? Not dressed? Help me out here?”

“Get. Out.”

She kept her eyes closed. “You gotta eat, Ramsey. You can’t stay locked up in this room forever.”

I wanted to tell her to get the hell out again. Honestly, it was on the tip of my tongue. But it never made it past my lips because my traitorous eyes stole a head-to-toe of her lithe body. She was barefoot, wearing jeans—tight ones that tapered at her ankle. They looked like mine in the sense that they had a rip in the knee. They didn’t look like mine in the sense that they hugged the curve of her hips and more than likely her ass too. A pink tank top stretched across her chest, and I swear on my life, fuck x-ray vision because I could see the pebble of her nipples beneath the fabric.

It wasn’t a ridiculous dress.

It wasn’t stupid fucking heels.

She wasn’t wearing a face full of clown makeup.

She was just Thea.

The nostalgia pumped through my veins like acid even as my cock stirred. Fuck, I should have jerked off again in the shower.

“I’m dressed,” I bit out, desperate for her to put her damn hands down and maybe use them to cover her tits instead.

Her long, brown lashes fluttered as she opened her eyes. Those fucking eyes had once owned me. As a huge smile lit her face, I felt the claim all over again.

“Oh, look, you chose one of the outfits I picked out for you.”

Of course I had. Of fucking course. As soon as I got her out of my room, I was going to take the outfit off and light it on fire.

Final_HisEyes

Excerpt

“Close your eyes.”

I slant a curious look at Gavin, taking in his kiss-swollen lips and flushed skin, his untamable mop of hair and the blaze of excitement lighting up the blue of his corneas.

Gavin squeezes my hand reassuringly as I do what he’s asked, then slowly walks me the remaining few steps toward our cave. Without vision, my other senses are heightened. The cry of birds sounds closer, like they are perched just overhead instead of on branches thirty or forty feet above. The bite of the breeze on my skin is sharper, each gust sending a chill racing along already sensitive nerve endings. The smell of ripe earth and rich evergreen and the clean, bracing scent of Gavin himself is downright intoxicating, my head swimming as I pull breaths deep into my lungs.

Most of all, the moonstone pendant laying against my collarbone is making my chest tingle, my heart fluttering against my ribcage.

“Okay, open them.”

I do, immediately gasping in surprise at what Gavin’s done to our little cave. There are candles burning and scattered rose petals—no, poppy petals—and a basket filled with drinks and snacks. A pile of blankets and pillows.

“You did all this for me?” I ask, my voice sounding whispery and weird.

I feel whispery and weird.

I’ve never had a birthday like this. I’ve never even imagined a birthday like this. First the necklace and now, seeing the lengths Gavin has gone for me…

Beneath the surface of my skin, I’m a chaotic mess of emotions. I don’t know what to say, how to act. This is unchartered territory for me.

“Of course,” he says, as if it’s nothing. But it’s not nothing. It’s everything.

Before I dissolve into a teary puddle, Gavin reaches into his pocket and pulls out a deck of cards. “You taught me how to play gin rummy—how about I teach you to play poker?”

A strangled laugh leaves my throat. “I think that’s fair.”

We sit down and Gavin spends a few minutes going over the basics of the game before dealing out the cards. It’s not as easy as gin rummy, but I get the hang of it after a few rounds.

And when Gavin lifts a mischievous brow and asks, “Want to make things interesting?” I know exactly what he’s doing. Not just poker. Strip poker.

And that’s when I realize just how much planning went into tonight. Beyond buying me an expensive present. Beyond pimping out our cave. Gavin found a way to make my first time—our first time—a mix of old and new. An experience evoking our past and celebrating our future.

I’ve imagined the night Gavin and I would finally go all the way a million times. But I’d only focused on the physical aspects. Would it hurt? Will there be blood? What if I do it wrong?

It never crossed my mind that he would take such care with… everything.

But, of course, it should have.

Gavin Cross is one of a kind.

And he’s mine.

“A powerful story of growth and healing. Five amazing stars!” Coralee June, International bestselling author

Releasing Keanu, and all-new second chance romantic standalone in the fan-favorite Kennedy Boys Series from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis, is available now!

ReleasingKeanu_ecover

KEANU

Selena played me.

Confirming I wasted years loving someone who didn’t love me back.

It should be easy to move on, but since she dumped me, I can’t shake her from my thoughts, no matter how hard I try.

Dates and random hookups don’t help, because no one measures up to the girl I still love with my whole heart.

When she appears at my door, begging me for help, I can’t turn her away. My protective instincts kick in, and I grasp this second chance with both hands.

This time, I’m determined to open her eyes.

To help her realize she made a mistake throwing what we had away.

To prove our love is the real deal.

SELENA

Keanu has it all wrong.

I let him go because I love him too much to continue holding him back.

And I’ve paid for it every day since.

I didn’t think it was possible to miss someone this much, but my entire being aches for him in a way that isn’t healthy.

It’s why I continue to keep my distance even though it’s killing me inside.

No one understands me the way he does, so, when my ugly past returns, threatening to undo years of progress, he’s the first person I run to.

If anyone can keep me safe, it’s the love of my life.

Maybe, this time, I’m strong enough to be the woman he deserves.

If my past doesn’t take me from him first.

Excerpt

KEANU

I like her,” Kent says, talking in hushed tones as we rinse and stack the dishwasher.

“I love her.” I’m not ashamed to admit it. For years, I told my family nothing about the girl who had captured my heart. Now, things have changed, and I’m not going to hide her or my feelings anymore.

“I know, bro. I always have.”

“I’m not letting her go this time,” I say, wiping down the counter. “Selena is it for me.”

Kent eyes me circumspectly. “You really mean that.”

I toss the damp dishcloth in the sink. “Yeah. I do.”

He thumps me in the shoulder. “Guess I’ve permanently lost my wingman, huh?”

“I was never a true wingman, and we both know it.”

“Yeah. You were a miserable fuck most of the time. I’ve seen you smile more this past twenty-four hours than I have in the last two years.”

“She makes my heart sing.”

He sticks two fingers in his mouth, gagging. “Fuck no. Not you too.” He shakes his head. “There is no one left. All my brothers have turned to the dark side.”

Only Kent could refer to love as a darkness. Like it’s an illness or something.

“Love isn’t a burden, bro. It’s the best feeling in the world. Even when the girl of your dreams yanks your beating heart out of your chest and stomps all over it, it’s still worth every ounce of pain. Wait and see. You’ll meet a girl, and she’ll nail your heart to the wall, and you’ll be powerless to do anything about it.”

He shakes his head. “It’s not gonna happen.”

“Why the hell not?” I grab two bottles of water out of the refrigerator while I eye my cynical brother.

“Because we both know I’ll somehow fuck it all up.”

Review – Releasing Keanu by Siobhan Davis

43261111. sy475

Releasing Keanu; The Kennedy Boys #8 (Series)
by Siobhan Davis (Author)

This review is from: December 20, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

The Kennedy Boys are back and Releasing Keanu is the most emotional Kennedy book to date! Siobhan Davis has really outdone herself with this newest addition to the series. Not only is the story beautifully told, but it is relevant to what is happening in the world today.

I don’t want to give away too much of the storyline, but Selena is a survivor from a childhood abduction, that involved trafficking, pedofiles, and more. She is one of the strongest examples of a young woman who embraces the horrible situation she was dealt and comes out of the other side stronger. Selena gave up her one love, Keanu, two years ago to help her independence and mental strength grow. She used Keanu to hide behind because it was easier and she knew she’d never get better unless she let him go, now she’s back in his life and she’s different and this time she doesn’t want to lose him.

Keanu will also blow you away with the depth of his emotions for the woman he loves. He displays a wisdom and strength well beyond his years that allows him to be the man he needs to be and yet also be sensitive, intuitive, and caring in a way that is very emotional to read. When Selena shows back up on his doorstep he would love to walk away, but he knows he can’t. He loves her. He’s always loved her and this time he’s never walking away again.

Keanu and Selena achieve so much together through their combined strength, support, and constant communication with each other which is a lesson so many couples could learn from. While they spent two years apart, which tore them both up, they also came to the same conclusion that it needed to happen so they could grow and become stronger. They both needed to find their own truths before a future was ever possible. With counseling, exercise, and diligence, they both seek to be the best for each other. A true testament to their love. Old demons seek to destroy what they have, but nothing is going to rip them apart if a Kennedy is working on the case,

There are Kennedy family moments sprinkled in for fans of the series, but this is a book that can be read as a standalone if you haven’t read any of the previous books before. You’ll definitely enjoy who pops in, for all the serious fans, along with all the potential hints for what could be coming up, it was mouth watering.

This is a gorgeous addition to the overall series and you will adore this couple as they grow by leaps and bounds.

*Please note that even though Siobhan doesn’t write any of the kidnapping scenes graphically or violently if you suffer from any triggers or PTSD symptoms, she does include a warning in her book of the aforementioned and please take care in reading those scenes.

Releasing December 30th, pre-order your copy today!

Dear Taron,
I should have told you this before…
 

Dear Taron,
Is there a time-limit on
forgiveness? 
If there is, I haven’t reached it… 
 
Dear Taron,
I still love you… 

 

Taron Rhodes was my brother’s best friend.
 
He was sexy as sin.
But he was more than that…
He was ponytail-pulling, ice down your shirt teasing, throw you in the lake screaming… 
Strong, tanned arms and bright green eyes over a heart-stopping, naughty grin… 
Did I mention his tight end? 
I gave him my first real kiss, my heart, my everything.
I said I’d wait for him…
I’m still waiting, because Taron Rhodes is still the man of my dreams,
And I have a secret that has his bright green eyes.
Noel LaGrange stole my heart when she was only eighteen—pushing me off a flatbed and calling me a city slicker. 
Her brother Sawyer would kick my ass if he knew how many times we made out that summer, how close we got.
Everything changed when Sawyer and I joined the military.
We were honorably discharged, but I didn’t go to her.
Instead, I went back to the city… where no amount of money, no amount of pills can heal this wound.
Only her whiskey eyes and dark hair, her slim arms and her sweet scent, give me hope. 
I broke her heart just as surely as I broke mine, but I’m going back to make it right.
If she’s still waiting…
(WAIT FOR ME is a STAND-ALONE small-town, second-chance romance with a guaranteed HEA. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

Review – Wait For Me by Tia Louise

Wait For Me (Standalone, but interconnected to Tia’s book universe)
by Tia Louise (Author)

This review is from: December 11, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

A second chance, emotional romance, unlike any other you will read.

Right from the beginning of Wait For Me Tia drenches you in big feelings. Her words rolled over me and I was completely drowned in Noel and Taron’s story. I knew immediately I did not want to be revived until the very last page was turned and trust me, the ups and downs of this story were so worth losing myself in one entire sitting.

From the very beginning you get the sense that Noel and Taron will fall in love and you know there will be heartbreak. What you don’t know is the magnitude of emotions that are going to hit you and the depth of which these two people truly love one another until you read it for yourself.

Noel and Taron have a young love – all encompassing – can’t think of anything else – whirlwind kind of romance. They go into it with their eyes wide open knowing that Taron is leaving for the marines, but neither have ever felt these kind of powerful feelings before so they decide to wait for each other, even knowing the danger he is embarking upon.

Even as they stay connected through today’s means of technology and through older means of letter writing and gift boxes, the terrible happens and they both are changed forever. I will leave the rest of the anticipation for what Wait For Me entails because you need to read this story yourself and get swept away like I did.

Wait For Me is both a story that is heartwarming and gut wrenching. It is filled with so many emotions that will pull at every heart string and keep you enraptured until the very last page. Pre-order it today!

Release, an all-new emotional, second chance romance standalone from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez is coming January 5th and we have the incredible cover!

Release AMAZON

Growing up, Ramsey Stewart branded my soul in ways time could never heal.

At twelve, he asked me to be his girlfriend.

At thirteen, he gave me my first kiss.

By sixteen, we’d fallen in love, planned a future together, and had our eyes set on the horizon.

Love never fails, right?

But for Ramsey, it did.

Love failed him.

I failed him.

The entire world failed him.

At seventeen, Ramsey was convicted of killing the boy who assaulted me.

Move on, he wrote in his first and only letter from prison.

Start a new life, he urged.

I don’t love you anymore, he lied.

There was no such thing as giving up on Ramsey. Love may have been our curse, but he was mine—then, now, and forever.

So here I am, twelve long years later, waiting for a man I don’t even know to emerge from between the chain link gates.

The assignment should be a fashion stylist’s dream. Dane Scotland—brilliant programmer, millionaire, partner in my brother’s company—is going to a big-money meeting, and he needs to look the part.

The problem? Dane doesn’t want a makeover. He’s grumpy and reclusive, and his wardrobe consists of two pairs of old jeans. He doesn’t want me anywhere near him.

The tailor squawked as Dane pushed him aside, striding toward me in his underwear. He put his hands on the arms of my chair and leaned over me, his eyes on mine. I could see every inch of his naked skin. He glared at me.

“I get it,” he growled. “You’re pushing me. It’s what you do. Are you trying to see how far you can go?”

My voice came out breathy. God, I could smell him. “I’m not doing anything,” I said, and we both knew it was a lie.

“What do you want?” Dane said, thick with frustration. “Do you want me to say I’m sorry?”

My hands went cold and my breath stopped. “Sorry for what?”

“You know what. Sorry for what I did the last time I saw you.”

He thought he had to apologize for that? As if he had done something wrong? Had he thought that all this time? I couldn’t bear the idea. “No,” I told him. “Don’t say you’re sorry for that.”

He still watched me, his voice softening a little. “I’ll say it if you want me to.”

“Don’t,” I choked out. “Don’t.”

A muscle in his jaw twitched, and then he shook his head, backing off. “Can I at least put my clothes on now?”

I didn’t answer, and he didn’t wait for it. He grabbed his clothes and shoes and put them under his arm. “I’m going to dress in the men’s room,” he growled. “I’d like some privacy for a second.”

I still couldn’t speak. Dane walked away, and I downed the rest of the champagne in my glass, gulping it. He thought I wanted him to apologize. That fucking man.

That brilliant, stupid, utterly infuriating man.

I put my heels back on and stood up, looking at the suits and fabrics in the room. Now that the measurements were—mostly—done, I talked to the tailor about cuts, fabrics, and colors. Then my phone rang. Only after I hung up did I realize that Dane hadn’t come out of the bathroom, which was around the corner and down the hall.

“Would you like me to go find him?” the tailor asked politely.

“No need,” I said as suspicion bloomed in my gut. I walked around the corner myself, pushing open the door to the men’s room. “Dane!”

The room was empty.

“Fuck,” I said as the tailor came in after me. I turned to him. “Is there a back door?”

He looked stunned. Most likely, none of his rich clients had ever made an escape while getting measured for a bespoke suit. “At the end of the hall,” he said.

“Fuck,” I said again. I half-ran down the hall, moving as fast as I could in my three-inch heels. I slammed the back door open and saw nothing but parking lot.

Dane was gone.

New Release – Sexy as Sin by Julie Kriss

🔥🔥 NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Sexy as Sin by Julie Kriss is LIVE!!! They’re rich, they’re dirty, and they get tamed one by one! Sexy as Sin is Dane and Ava’s story!

Second chances burn hotter

The assignment should be a fashion stylist’s dream. Dane Scotland—brilliant programmer, millionaire, partner in my brother’s company—is going to a big-money meeting, and he needs to look the part.

The problem? Dane doesn’t want a makeover. He’s grumpy and reclusive, and his wardrobe consists of two pairs of old jeans. He doesn’t want me anywhere near him.

Did I mention that he’s my brother’s best friend? And that no one knows exactly what Dane and I got up to ten years ago?

The nerd I knew is gone—Dane ditched his glasses and bulked up. Now he’s six-foot-plus of hot genius, but I can be professional. I can definitely keep my hands off him. Again.

But when he looks at me like he used to, like no one else ever has, the only thing I want is to lose control.

Dane and I gave each other our first taste of heartbreak. Are we destined for another round?

Review – Sexy As Sin by Julie Kriss

Sexy as Sin (Filthy Rich, #2)

Sexy as Sin; Filthy Rich #2 (Series)
by Julie Kriss (Author)

This review is from: November 16, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

A very enjoyable read. Sweet, smart, steamy, and everything wrapped into a second chance romance that will give you the warm and fuzzy feelings. This was my first Julie Kriss read and it won’t be my last.

Ava Winters lives in New York where she lives and breathes fashion. It doesn’t exactly pay her to live lavishly, but she’ll take eating ramen noodles over giving up on style.

Dane Scotland lives in Chicago where he lives and breathes computer coding. He lives in a penthouse and has more money than he knows what to do with, but he’d rather wear ripped jeans and a twenty year old tshirt than clothes fitting the professional he’s supposed to personify.

When Dane is scheduled to meet with a potential Japanese client, the other partners in his company are worried about what he’ll portray as the companies image. Aiden Winters calls in his sister, Ava, to spruce up Dane’s image, however he has no idea about their past. Dane and Ava haven’t seen one another for almost a decade and they are about to open emotional doors that have been shut for very specific reasons.

Given a very large check, and knowing she won’t need to eat ramen for quite some time, Ava reluctantly goes to Chicago, back to face her past, and style up the man who stole her heart years ago.

Dane and Ava have a very deep connection that shows from the beginning. It allows their relationship 2.0 to blossom without lots of drama, but also into something very real and with a great friendship behind it. I loved reading their story.

Review – Yours Since Yesterday by Jennifer Bernard

48647703. sy475

Yours Since Yesterday; Lost Harbor, Alaska #2 (Series)
by Jennifer Bernard (Author)

This review is from: November 14, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

Yours Since Yesterday blends romance with a touch of mystery and suspense. You will be enthralled with Padric and Zoe’s story until the very end not only because you will wonder if their love really has a chance of surviving, but also if they themselves make it through reconnecting unscathed.

There is little doubt throughout the story that Padric and Zoe get along as friends. Their friendship status is what has held strong throughout the years they were apart, but a relationship beyond friendship doesn’t blossom without compromise. This is where both Padric and Zoe find trouble in their newly found path.

While Padric is an international rock star, with tour schedules, an entourage, fans, etc… Zoe is the local pizza star bringing joy by filling any and everyone’s stomach with fantastic pizza. Her business is so busy she hardly has time to rest, that doesn’t exactly allow time to follow a rock star around on his tour.

This is just one of the problems between this amazing, but headstrong couple. The biggest one of all isn’t even their burden to bear, it just belongs to their surnames. A scandal created by their parents that people still whisper about years later.

So as much as they try to get over each hurdle in their past and just go for living in the present they both worry that they will not have a future beyond Padric’s visit to Lost Harbor.

Yours Since Yesterday is a lovely read filled with the perfect mix of romance, steamy chemistry, and suspense.

Cover Reveal – WAIT FOR ME by Tia Louise

Image may contain: 2 people, text
 
 

Image may contain: 2 people, textDear Taron,
I should have told you this before…
Dear Taron,
Is there a time-limit on forgiveness?
If there is, I haven’t reached it… 
Dear Taron,
I still love you… 

 

Taron Rhodes was my brother’s best friend.

He was sexy as sin.
But he was more than that…
He was ponytail-pulling, ice down your shirt teasing, throw you in the lake screaming… 
Strong, tanned arms and bright green eyes over a heart-stopping, naughty grin… 
Did I mention his tight end? 
I gave him my first real kiss, my heart, my everything.
I said I’d wait for him…
I’m still waiting, because Taron Rhodes is still the man of my dreams,
And I have a secret that has his bright green eyes.
Noel LaGrange stole my heart when she was only eighteen—pushing me off a flatbed and calling me a city slicker. 
Her brother Sawyer would kick my ass if he knew how many times we made out that summer, how close we got.
Everything changed when Sawyer and I joined the military.
We were honorably discharged, but I didn’t go to her.
Instead, I went back to the city… where no amount of money, no amount of pills can heal this wound.
Only her whiskey eyes and dark hair, her slim arms and her sweet scent, give me hope. 
I broke her heart just as surely as I broke mine, but I’m going back to make it right.
If she’s still waiting…

Series Review – The Kennedy Boys by Siobhan Davis

By the USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis The Kennedy Boys series is full of scandals, dysfunctional families, soap-opera-style angst and drama, secrets and lies, mean girls and catfights, lust and love.

Each brother is unique along with the women they fall in love with, but they are all tied together by the bond of family. Book one in the unputdownable Kennedy Boys series will have you flipping the pages’ way beyond bedtime!

Only recommended to readers aged 17+ due to mature content and language.

46217171. sy475

This box set includes the first three books in the highly-addictive Kennedy Boys series from USA Today bestselling author, Siobhan Davis, and is over 1,000 pages of heart-stopping drama, intriguing twists and turns, and angsty romance. Complete trilogy that ends with a HEA and no cliffhanger.

Two fractured hearts and a forbidden love they can’t deny.

You shouldn’t want what you can’t have…

Faye Donovan has lost everything. After her parent’s tragic death, she’s whisked away from her home in Ireland when an unknown uncle surfaces as her new guardian.

Dropped smack-dab into the All-American dream, Faye should feel grateful. Except living with her wealthy uncle, his fashion-empire-owning wife, and their seven screwed-up sons is quickly turning into a nightmare—especially when certain inappropriate feelings arise.

Kyler Kennedy makes her head hurt and her heart race, but he’s her cousin.

He’s off limits.

And he’s not exactly welcoming—Kyler is ignorant, moody, and downright cruel at times—but Faye sees behind the mask he wears, recognizing a kindred spirit.

Kyler has sworn off girls, yet Faye gets under his skin. The more he pushes her away, the more he’s drawn to her, but acting on those feelings risks a crap-ton of prejudice, and any whiff of scandal could damage the precious Kennedy brand.

Concealing their feelings seems like the only choice.

But when everyone has something to hide, a secret is a very dangerous thing.

No cliffhangers. Dual POV. All books end with a HEA.

BOOKS IN THIS COLLECTION:

Loving Kalvin – standalone friends-to-lovers second-chance romance
I knew it would end in disaster, but I didn’t listen to reason. I didn’t care. Because I loved him so much.
Kalvin Kennedy ruled my heart.
Until he destroyed it.
Shattered it so completely that I became someone else. Someone I loathed. Someone who repeatedly lied to her loved ones.
So, I ran.
From him. From myself. Desperate to hide my new reality.
But I could only run so far.

Read Kay’s Review: Loving Kalvin

Saving Brad – standalone enemies-to-lovers romance
I need to escape.
To put as much distance between me and that monster so I can start living my life.
Yet, even the vast Atlantic Ocean isn’t enough to sever the connection. To allow me to forget how he’s ruined me. His hold is more than just physical. He has a vise grip on my head and my heart, and I can’t breathe, can’t think, can’t function.
So, I do everything to blot it out.
Until he reappears in my life.
Brad McConaughey. So hot. So infuriating. So in love with my best friend.
Every word out of Brad’s mouth makes me want to throat punch him or kick him in the nuts.
But he makes me feel, and I hate him for it. A part of me might actually love him for it.

Read Kay’s Review: Saving Brad

Seducing Kaden – standalone forbidden romance
When I was a little girl, I dreamed of falling in love. The all-consuming sweep-you-off-your-feet kind of love I swooned over in movies.
It didn’t take long for that fairytale notion to come crashing down around me. Now I’m trapped in a marriage I despise with no way out.
The only light in the dark is Kaden Kennedy—the one true love of my life. He doesn’t know he is, because I’m forced to love him from afar, condemned to toss and turn at night, crying over everything I want and all I can never have.
Seeing him day in, day out, destroys me, but there’s no other choice; I had to push him away to keep him safe.
Because if my husband ever finds out I’m in love with one of my students, I won’t be the only one in danger.

Read Kay’s Review: Seducing Kaden

Forgiving Keven – standalone second-chance romance
They say you never forget your first love, but I’m determined to prove Keven Kennedy is just a random boy from my past.
It’s not like I still think about him after all this time. Or daydream about how hot his kisses were and what it felt like to have his hands on my skin.
Nope, that’s not me. I’m in a happy place in my life. Engaged to a great man and finishing the last year of my photography degree.
But since I returned to Massachusetts, everything reminds me of the boy who ripped my heart to shreds. Especially when my fiancé’s constant business trips, and dwindling attention, raises old fears to the surface.
And then the unthinkable happens—Keven saunters back into my life, turning it upside down once more.
It’s ironic he thinks he’s protecting me when the only one I need protecting from is him.
